This isn’t a “smoking gun” national security risk of the type that Kamala Harris’ uncle and her lies about him are: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2020/09/26/kamala-harris-uncle-brags-about-india-deceiving-the-cia-with-nuclear-weapons-tests-kamala-deceives-biden-about-her-uncles-advisory-role-to-indias-ministry-of-defence/

Trump has denounced white nationalism and white supremacy repeatedly, and it’s never enough: https://youtu.be/Rj7jk9bDTyM His grandchildren are Jewish, and it’s still never enough. It’s apparently never enough because he has promised to reduce H1B and other immigration abuses, whereas most Media-IT companies wish to increase H1B visa abuses and to thus finish casting the majority of Americans into an unemployed India-style under-caste.

NBC is owned by Comcast, which has used the H1B visa program to sell out US workers. The same can be said of ABC (Walt Disney), CBS (Viacom), Washington Post (Amazon) and most recently…

Kamala Harris’ Truancy Law: Mother with Chronically Ill Child Arrested in Violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Mining Awareness +

Kamala Harris Vice Presidential Nominee Truancy Laws Explained” – Interview by Antonio Moore: https://youtu.be/redw6jD1QVU

Kamala Harris pretends to care about people with pre-existing conditions, but her truancy policies caused Cheree Peoples, with a chronically ill daughter, to be charged with a crime, and to lose benefits, because her daughter missed school. Her daughter suffered a stroke from the stress. This is but one way that having an ignorant, arrogant, “know-it-all”, like Kamala Harris, in power is very, very dangerous. We believe that her Brahmin upper caste upbringing made her ignorant of the lives of normal people, and uncaring.

Cheree Peoples’ daughter has sickle cell anemia. It is recognized as a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Ms. Peoples had doctors’ notes and had met with the school, but was still arrested because her daughter was alleged to be truant. This made it impossible for her to…

We demand an open investigation into the environmental catastrophe in Kamchatka

Екатерина Дворянинова started this petition to Office of the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation and 2 others

On September 29th, the first messages appeared on the Internet, drawing people’s attention to the state of the Khalaktyrsky Beach (Kamchatka Krai). Witnesses stated that the shore was covered with dead animals’ bodies. In addition, surfers complained about vision problems, symptoms of poisoning, and fever after contact with water. In a number of cases, after visiting a doctor, people were diagnosed with ocular chemical injuries. 

On September 30th, the Acting Minister of Natural Resources and Ecology of Kamchatka Krai reported, based on results of water sampling and quality assessments, that «… in one of the samples an excess of almost 4 times was found for oil products, in two samples – an excess of 2 times for phenols. During the extraction of samples, the glass of the chemical glassware was covered with an oily substance of a bright yellow color, which, may indicate the presence of a pollutant that is similar in properties to industrial oil

On October 1st, Kamchatka Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor’s Office initiated investigation of the information spreading on media concerning pollution of ocean water in the area of ​​Khalaktyrsky beach.

On October 2nd, the updated data of the chemical analysis of water samples confirmed an increase of approximately 2.5 times for phenols and 3.6 times for oil products.

On October 3rd, Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of Kamchatka Krai posted on Instagram the following statement: «The color of the water is normal, the smell of the air is normal, the beach is completely clean», which contradicts the testimony of divers claiming thousands of dead animals.

The fact that this pollution has been continuing for more than two weeks, despite the past two storms, may indicate that this is a leakage and not a one-time release of substance. Mass mortality of animals suggests that it can be an effect of a potent toxin.

Dead ringed seals, giant octopuses thrown out of the water were found on the shore, along with perished fish, mollusks, and sea urchins underwater. If the leakage does not stop, more animals of various species, from numerous invertebrates to large mammals such as killer whales, whose migratory routes pass close to the contaminated waters, could be affected.

Despite ongoing water quality assessments, the source and cause of the leakage remain unknown. Until it is detected and eliminated, the situation may worsen, and the destruction of the Kamchatka ecosystem will continue. In addition, with further development, the tragedy may spread to the water areas of the adjacent regions and/or the open sea, which lay beyond the territorial borders of Russian Federation. 

We demand the measures to be taken to identify and eliminate the causes of the accident!

The affected products were distributed in retail stores nationally.

Retailers who received the recalled lots have been contacted and asked to pull these lots from their inventory and shelves.

There are no other Family Pet, Heartland Farms, or Paws Happy Life products or other lot codes of these products affected by this precautionary recall.

petition: Smithfield Foods said they would improve their pigs’ lives. But after everyone looked away, the cruelty continued

77,277 SUPPORTERS 80,000 GOAL The tight-fitting metal cage suddenly surrounds you. Your heart starts to race as your breathing becomes fast and shallow. Your mind turns fuzzy and blank, realizing there is no escape. This feeling is panicked desperation. And this is what mamas-to-be experience every day in factory farms. Mama-to-be pigs, that is. And it’s all due to the hideous use of gestation crates.

Sign the petition to demand that Smithfield Foods removes all gestation crates from its facilities!

What are gestation crates? They are extremely tight-fitting metal cages that enclose pregnant pigs, known as sows, while they are “with piglet.” Mama-pigs-to-be live for approximately four months at a time in these nearly form-fitting crates, in which they have almost no room to move. The cages are so cramped, the sows cannot turn side-to-side or around, and are barely even able to stand up and sit down. Their excrement piles up beneath and around their legs, and the sounds of animals in pain fill the air all around. The trauma this breeds is immense.

Then, once the mama gives birth to her new litter of baby piglets, the babies are torn away — and the mama is re-impregnated, and thrust back into her familiar, inescapable coffin of a cage. The average sow in this situation is forced to breed and produce more offspring for slaughter five to seven different times.

We might be used to the idea of these types of torturous Medieval enclosures for factory farmed animals, but consider if you yourself were told to live in one of these metal cages — and then, not just for one day, but for months.

Stuffing pregnant animals into such crates is also not the exception. It’s the rule at factory farms. Of all the pigs raised for pork in the U.S., 95 percent come from factory farms. Numerous companies, including Smithfield Foods, have tried to fool consumers by making reassuring promises that they would phase out their use of gestation crates. But now, over five years later, nothing has changed. In other words: it was all just lip service. A lie.

Smithfield Foods, Inc. is the largest producer of pork not just in the U.S., but in the entire world. The corporation murders nearly 30 million pigs every single year. So for them to make such a promise — and to then break it — is especially cruel to the countless forcibly-impregnated mama pigs in their scream-filled facilities.

The only reason Smithfield ever made their (false, mal-intended) promise, though, was because of an outpouring of public outrage. If we can mobilize that public outrage again, Smithfield will realize the world is actually watching and that they have to do the right thing and follow through this time. We have that power!

Help us pressure the giant factory farming corporation Smithfield Foods, Inc. to finally end its use of all gestation crates! Sign the petition!EMBED

Deadly Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Pig Ears Dog Treats

Stock Image of Pig Ear Dog Treats

Pig Ears Dog Treats Stock Image

October 1, 2020 — The Public Health Agency of Canada is alerting consumers it is investigating a deadly outbreak of Salmonella infections occurring in British Columbia, Alberta, and Yukon.

Based on investigation findings to date, exposure to pig ear dog treats has been identified as a likely source of the outbreak.

Some of the individuals who became sick reported feeding their dog Paws Up! and Western Family brands of pig ear dog treats before their illnesses occurred.

These brands are sold at Canadian Tire and Save-On-Foods.

No recall image provided by the company

The outbreak investigation is ongoing and it is possible that additional products may be identified.

On September 29, 2020, the supplying company, Masters Best Friend, voluntarily issued a Notice of Stop Sale for Paws Up! and Western Family brands of pig ear dog treats.

These products were sold nationwide in Canada.

Investigation Summary

As of September 29, 2020, there are eight confirmed cases of Salmonella typhimurium illness in the following provinces: British Columbia (5), Alberta (2), and Yukon (1).

Individuals became sick between late February and early August 2020. Three individuals have been hospitalized. In addition, one individual has died.

Individuals who became ill are between 7 and 95 years of age. The illnesses are distributed equally among men (50%) and women (50%).

It is possible that more recent illnesses may be reported in the outbreak because there is a period of time between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported to public health officials.

For this outbreak, the illness reporting period is between four and seven weeks.

What to Do?

Given this, do not feed your dog any Paws Up! or Western Family brand pig ear dog treats.

Always wash your hands right after handling dog treats, and ensure that all areas the treats have come in contact with are properly cleaned and sanitized.

This outbreak is a reminder of the importance of safely handling all pet treats, including pig ears and pet food.

These products can be contaminated with bacteria that can make you and others sick if proper handling and cleaning practices are not followed. If contaminated, pet treats and pet food can also make your pets sick. Ill pets can spread bacteria, like Salmonella, to individuals they are in contact with even if they do not show any signs of illness.

For more information on the affected products, please contact Masters Best Friend.

Although products are no longer available for purchase in stores, they may still be in consumer homes.

U.S. citizens can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

Or go to the FDA’s “Report a Pet Food Complaint” page.

Canadians can report any health or safety incidents related to the use of this product by filling out the Consumer Product Incident Report Form.

US Senators Ask CBO For Cost Of Mini-Amnesty & Stimulus Payments For Illegals Which Was Sneaked Into Democrat Stimulus Bill

If Americans look at the HEROES Act and see the things in there, they would be furious at Pelosi, Schumer, and most Democrat politicians. It amnesties illegal workers until three months after the pandemic, among other travesties.


They need to ask CBO to calculate the cost of S386. Mike Lee has been constantly trying to sneak it through with unanimous consent.
