In another classic Drudge Report scoop that is bound to dominate the Democratic Primary news cycle from now until South Carolina and Nevada, the conservative-leaning aggregator reports that Mike Bloomberg is considering Hillary Clinton as a potential running mate.

Drudge added that, as part of the deal, Bloomberg would likely change his residency, since the electoral college math would make it harder for a Presidential and VP candidates from the same state.

Sources close to Bloomberg campaign tell DRUDGE REPORT that candidate is considering Hillary Clinton as running mate, after their polling found the Bloomberg-Clinton combination would be formidable force…

DRUDGE has learned that Bloomberg himself would go as far as to change his official residence from New York to homes he owns in Colorado or Florida, since the electoral college makes it hard for a POTUS and VPOTUS from the same state.

Inside The Global Conservation Organization Infiltrated By Trophy Hunters

International Wildlife Bond

In depth investigation by Roberto Jurkschat, “Inside The Global Conservation Organization Infiltrated By Trophy Hunters,” BuzzFeed, 13 February 2020 (see original text for all images and references)

GENEVA — Giraffes may well tower over all other animals in the natural world — but in the wild, their numbers are rapidly dwindling, and they are desperately in need of protection. The giraffe population in Africa has collapsed by 40% over the last three decades, with climate change and agricultural expansion the main factors.

In 2018, six African countries — the Central African Republic, Chad, Kenya, Mali, Niger, and Senegal — joined together to sound the alarm about this stark decline. They believed there was another threat the animals faced: the international trade in giraffe trophies and body parts.

You can, after all, buy giraffe heads as decorations for your home for around $9,000 online, or pay for a…

The DISGUSTING Thing Bloomberg Allegedly Said To A Pregnant Employee

Mike Bloomberg’s record of attacking women mirror’s Trump’s. John Iadarola, Cenk Uygur, and Lindsey Ellefson hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

“In December 2015, employees at Everytown for Gun Safety, the gun control organization funded by Mike Bloomberg, arrived at work to find a holiday gift on their desks from their employer: the former mayor’s 1997 autobiography, Bloomberg by Bloomberg. Flipping through the book, staffers found themselves uncomfortably reading their billionaire founder’s boasts about keeping “a girlfriend in every city” and other womanizing exploits as a Wall Street up-and-comer.

“A few people started immediately going through it and sending the cringe-iest parts around on email chains,” one former Everytown employee told me. “Hardly the most controversial things he’s said, but it’s still a…

How to Protect Your Pet From Pet Theft

Cherry Bligg

pet theft header

In just a few seconds, your dog or cat could be taken–snatched from your yard or dragged off of your front porch–only to be sold to research laboratories, used as fighters or bait in dog fighting rings, or “flipped” for profit. In fact, in the time it takes you to read this sentence, someone could have stolen your pet.

Since many pet thefts go unreported, it’s impossible to know exactly how many animals are taken but, historically, an estimated two million pets are stolen in the United States each year.

Pet Theft Awareness Day

Observed annually on February 14–also known as Valentine’s Day, which sees a considerable uptick in pet thefts–LCA first created National Pet Theft Awareness Day in 1988 to raise awareness for the issues of pet theft and to educate the public about how to keep their companion animals safe from unscrupulous thieves.

Common Reasons for Pet Theft

Reward: One of the most common reasons for pet theft, “dog flipping” occurs when dogs are stolen for the purpose of being sold for profit. Stolen dogs are typically resold to unsuspecting new owners, to puppy mills, or to backyard breeders where they are continually bred so their offspring can then be sold for profit. Dogs raised in by backyard breeders or in puppy mills do not receive adequate veterinary care and are often forced to live in deplorable living conditions.

Medical Research: USDA licensed Class B animal dealers obtain dogs and cats from random sources like animal pounds/shelters (this is known as pound seizure), other B dealers, “bunchers,” backyard breeders, or by stealing them from unsuspecting owners, only to turn around and sell them to medical research laboratories. In 2016, 820,812 animals were used in research labs in the U.S., roughly 60,797 of which were dogs. LCA’s groundbreaking undercover investigations into Class B dealers helped expose and shut down numerous dog dealers, such as C.C. Baird, as well as Barbara Ruggiero, Frederick Spero, and Ralph Jacobsen, leading LCA to become the first animal rights group to procure state and federal prison sentences for Class B dealers in 1991.

Dog Fighting Rings: Although the vast majority of dogs are taken for the purpose of being resold or bred, many are also stolen to be used as fighters or as bait in illegal dog fighting rings. As of 2008, dog fighting is a felony offense in all 50 states (as well as in D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands). In most states, possessing a dog for the purpose of fighting is also considered a felony. (Click here to learn more about dog fighting rings.)

How to Protect Your Pets

Keep your pets indoors, especially when you are not at home. Do not leave your pets unsupervised in your yard; it only takes a minute for thieves to steal your beloved companion animals. Keep your pet on a leash and do not let your pet roam free in your neighborhood. Never leave your pet alone in a car.

Properly identify your pets with a collar, tag, and microchip.

Ensure your pets are spayed and neutered; fixed animals are less likely to wander away from home.

Keep recent photos and written descriptions of your companion animals on hand at all times, and maintain up-to-date records and licenses on all of your pets.

Be aware of strangers in your area and report anything unusual, such as suspicious neighborhood activities or a surge in missing pets, to local police and animal control.

What to Do If Your Pet Is Stolen or Goes Missing

Call the police; if your pet is stolen, ask to file a report so there is a record of the theft.

Contact your local animal control department, animal shelters, and pounds in your area. You can also file a lost pet report with each shelter.

Canvass your neighborhood and put up “missing” flyers/posters with an up-to-date photo of your dog along with accurate contact information.

Search online “lost dog” websites (such as Craigslist or Center for Lost Pets) to see if someone has found your pet.

Be aware of scams! People may claim to have your pet and insist on a reward before turning the animal over to you. If a stranger calls saying they’ve found your pet, make sure they give you a very detailed description of your pet.
