Republican Party: Party Of Animal Cruelty In White House, Senate, House, Courts, Governors' Mansions?

1 BUSH FAMILY

G H W Bush was the keynote speaker at a Safari Club International (club of trophy hunters) convention. His son George Bush, announced the Safari Club, would be given a 'governor of the year' award. In addition, George W Bush wrote a letter for an Indiana trophy hunter asking Botswana to bring back lion hunting. Dan Quayle, vice president under G H W Bush, was also a big supporter of trophy hunting.

2 BUSH OPERATIVES

a. SENATOR PORTMAN OF OHIO WANTS HUNTING IN PARKS Republican Senator Rob Portman of Ohio as a former Bush operative attempted to bring hunting to the national parks, a danger to children, adults and animals.

b. GOVERNOR JOHN KASICH, Bush operative in the 90's, has since becoming governor slashed money for schools, libraries, road improvements while making sure that hunters in the ODNR have the money to teach children how to kill with bows and arrows.

3 SUPREME COURT DOESN'T THINK BIRDS SHOULD TURN AROUND

The 5 Republicans on the Supreme Court quashed California's legislation to give chickens a little more room to move around in factory farming cages, voicing the opinion that California law cannot be more humane than national law.

4 REPUBLICANS PUSHED UNCONSTITUTIONAL SUPPRESSION OF ANIMAL RIGHTS (AETA)

Johnny Izakson of Georgia is running for reelection in 2016. He was one of 4 Republican senators who introduced the AETA bill which became law, a law which criminalizes nonviolent animal rights activists while shielding animal torturers in slaughterhouses, factory farms, laborotories. James Inhofe and Tom Coburn were the 2 Oklahoma senators among the 4.

5 IOWA ABUSERS

A Republican Joni Ernst was installed in the US Senate airlifted by Koch money after a mysterious palnecrash by her Libertarian opponent. She had bragged that she was a piglet castrater. Her bankrollers, the billionaire Koch Brothers, have destroyed animal habitat in many places and fund mainly Republicans.

B Iowa Republican congressman Steve King has tried to keep chickens in small cages and was satirized by Stephen Colbert (see below)

6 WAR BOMBS BURN AND CRUSH ANIMALS, BIRDS, REPTILES, BUTTERFLIES BEES AND FIREFLIES

Of the 17 Republican candidates for the presidency of the US, only Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and Donald Trump have publicly opposed illegal, immoral and stupid wars of Bush 1, Bush 2 and Obama.

7 REPUBLICAN SENATOR MITCH MCCONNELL OF KENTUCKY
pawn of Kentucky cattle operations and major destroyer of animal habitat through his pushing of coal mining mountaintop decapitation. In general, the Republican Party is the party of mountaintop decapitation coalmining, which destroys animals' habitat... their trees and green cover, while poisoning their rivers.

8 MITT ROMNEY'S PROFITEERING FROM ANIMAL SUFFERING

In 2012, Republican Mitt Romney's record was abusive.

a Romney bought 2 million in Burger King stock
b Romney initiated brutal rodeo at the Salt Lake City Olympics
c Romney vetoed a bill recognizing the right of students to refuse to dissect animals
living or dead.
d Romney broke Massachusetts law transporting the family dog 1200 miles in a cage on the roof.
e Romney picked a bowhunter as his running mate, Congressman Ryan of Wisconsin
f
Romney has supported all the illegal wars in which animals, birds, reptiles, fishes and
plants as well as human beings are bombed. The Mormon church owned Bonneville
Radio Network, 1400 stations feature warmonger animal bomberLimbaugh.
g. Romney contributed to the Mormon church owned cow-calf operation, the biggest in the
US, sprawling over 3 counties, 312,000 acres and 44,000 animals. The Mormon
church outright owns many factory farms and ranches.

9 REPUBLICAN JOHN MCCAIN PICKED A BOW AND ARROW HUNTER, SARAH PALIN, AS HIS RUNNING MATE. She advocates aerial hunting of animals.

10 TEXAS SENATOR JOHN CORNYN was involved in a canned shoot of pheasants who were released from cages directly in front of him.

11 OHIO FELONY LAW Dick Goddard is a longstanding weatherman on Cleveland tv. For many decades he has gone after work to feed strays around the city. Republicans in the state legislature defeated Goddard’s Law, which would have made it a felony in Ohio to inflict pain on companion animals.


12 THE REPUBLICAN PARTY KEEPS ITS POWER PARTLY BECAUSE most states in the West are low population. Wyoming with 600,000 citizens has the same number of senators as California with 38 million. Red states are states of cattle and sheep ranches which constantly impose suffering on animals.

13. FUNDERS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY

Billionaire Dan Duncan, Safari Club member, was stopped in Russia in 2002 after breaking their law by a. aerial hunting and b. murdering an endangered species bighorned sheep. He, like Palmer, claimed he did not realize he was acting illegally. Duncan's Double D Ranch, a 5,000-acre hunting compound in Texas.
On the other side of the aisle, In August, Senate Democrat Robert Menendez introduced a bill to curb trophy hunting. http://media.cagle.com/83/2014/11/06/155911_600.jpg

Steven Chancellor, Indiana coal profiteer, a major funder of Republican campaigns, is a trophy hunter who worked with G W Bush to reinstitute lion hunts in Botswana.

Robert Mercer of Renaissance Technologies is a major investor in Gilead Science which has been involved in research on chimpanzees. He is a major contributor to a Republican presidential campaign.
