Animal “Rights” Terrorists Kill Thousands of Game Birds

Green Jihad

In an attempt to disrupt an upcoming partridge hunt, activists with the Animal Liberation Front released thousands of the birds last week from the Southern Partridges in Devon, England.

According to The Times of London, supporters of the bird hunt point out that the partridges released would either starve or be eaten by other predators. The bird release is a setback, Countryside Alliance chairman Liam Stokes says, but releasing the birds was a thoughtless act of cruelty.

Ultimately, animal rights hoodlums do not care what happens to the partridges as their primary goal was not only to delay or stop the hunt altogether, but also to rid mankind of animals humans can use for hunting.

The reason why animal rights groups kill animals is articulated at PETA’s website. Dogs and cats are euthanized because doing so helps them escape an uncaring world without trauma or pain

LENIN: THE MAN, THE DICTATOR, AND THE MASTER OF TERROR by Victor Sebestyen

(Vladimir I. Lenin)

For many years historians have laid the blame for the oppressive and authoritarian regime that took root in Russia following its revolution on Joseph Stalin.  Names like NKVD, GPU or banishment to Siberia, political purges were all associated with the Russian dictator.  However, the credit for the darkness that pervaded the former Soviet Union first must rest at the feet of Vladimir I. Lenin.  In 1973 Alexsandr S. Solzhenitsyn published the first volume of his GULAG ARCHIPELAGO, and the famous Russian dissident argued that the origin of Soviet terror and the police state belong to Lenin.  This argument has been accepted by historians and in the latest biography of Lenin since Robert Service’s excellent monograph, Victor Sebestyen’s LENIN: THE MAN, THE DICTATOR, AND THE MASTER OF TERROR has taken that argument to a new level.   According to Sebestyen, in his quest for power, Lenin “promised people anything…

Here’s Some of the Excitement of “Earth Day”

American Elephants

Yesterday was “Earth Day” which I take no notice of.  Penn State University, however marked the day by announcing that they would refuse to allow a near-century old recreation club— The Penn State Outing Club founded in 1920—to organize the outdoor, student-led trips of camping and hiking . It seems they judge the activities to be too risky. Two other outdoor recreation clubs — the Nittany Grotto Caving Club and the Nittany Divers SCUBA Club have been directed to end trip offerings.

Mark J. Perry Ph.D. a professor of economics at the University of Michigan Flint, writing for the American Enterprise Institute, posted a spectacular list of 18 examples of the spectacularly wrong predictions made around the first “Earth Day” in 1970.

1. Harvard biologist George Wald estimated that “civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”

2. “We are in…

A Higher Priority: The Investigation of James Comey Raises Serious Questions Over His Leaking Of FBI Material

JONATHAN TURLEY

440px-Comey-FBI-PortraitBelow is my column in The Hill newspaper on the reported investigation of former FBI Director James Comey for his removal and leaking of memos related to the Russian investigation.  The release of the memos already contradicts critical aspects of Comey’s explanation for his leaking of the information.  What is troubling is that many have worked mightily to avoid the clearly unprofessional aspects of Comey’s conduct.  Comey could well be accurate in his account of Trump and justified in his concerns over Trump’s conduct but that does not excuse the actions that he has exhibited in both the leaking of the memos and the timing of his book.  Comey’s best-selling book, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, could prove tragically ironic if Comey showed a higher loyalty to himself in responding to his own firing rather than the investigation that he once headed. In the very least…

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism.

We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
