  1. #1 Humane Society Faces RICO Suit (Con Game is Over). 
    Racketeering Lawsuit Fingers Humane Society of the United States

    Multi-Million Dollar Animal Rights Group Accused Of Corruption; Lawsuit Available At HumaneWatch

    Washington - In a landmark RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) lawsuit certain to have far-reaching implications for the animal rights movement, Feld Entertainment and the Ringling Brothers circus sued the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), its lawyers, and several other animal rights groups last week. The nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) unearthed the lawsuit in federal court records today. CCF is making the lawsuit available online at its newest website, www.HumaneWatch.org

    "America's farmers, ranchers, hunters, fishermen, research scientists, fashion designers, and restaurateurs have seen for decades how the animal rights movement can behave like a mobbed-up racket," said CCF Director of Research David Martosko. "But it's still shocking to see the evidence laid out on paper. In a treble-damage lawsuit like this, a jury could actually do the humane thing and finally put HSUS out of business completely."

    In its February 16 lawsuit, Feld leveled bribery, fraud, obstruction of justice, and money laundering charges against HSUS and two of its corporate attorneys; three other animal rights groups; the Washington, DC law firm of Meyer Glitzenstein & Crystal; and all three of that firm's named partners. On December 30, 2009, Federal Judge Emmitt Sullivan ruled that these defendants collaborated to pay more than $190,000 to Mr. Tom Rider, a former Feld employee who was an elephant "barn helper" for two years in the late 1990s, in exchange for his impeached testimony against Feld in an earlier lawsuit-testimony Judge Sullivan declared "not credible" and disregarded in its entirety. That lawsuit was dismissed.

    Feld is also suing Mr. Rider, and a nonprofit "Wildlife Advocacy Project" charity, claiming that Meyer Glitzenstein & Crystal used it to funnel money from their plaintiff clients to Mr. Rider. These clients included the Fund for Animals, which merged with HSUS in 2004.

    "The new HumaneWatch website is the only place the public will be able to read this lawsuit," Martosko added. "We're publishing a treasure trove of information about the Humane Society of the United States, including lots of surprising documents that HSUS would rather remain hidden from its contributors."

    Last week CCF launched www.HumaneWatch.org,an online watchdog project dedicated to analyzing HSUS's activities and keeping the group honest. It includes a blog, an interactive document library, and a growing body of information about HSUS-related organizations and staff.
    It's about time these fraudulent activist groups get exposed. Your local "humane" shelter isn't a part of the HSUS although you might have been misled about that if a HSUS shill ever hit you up for a donation. If you want to give money for homeless pets, give it to your local shelter or rescue. If you want to give money for wildlife in general, your state DOW will a better job with it than any national "wildlife" groups.

    Remember, most wildlife programs in the United States are primarily funded through the fees and taxes paid by sportsmen, hunters, fishers, hikers, and people who buy guns, ammo, or camping supplies. Naked hippies who shake a can soliciting money for wildlife have done nothing for conservation in this country.

    Last I checked, Newkirk wasn't directly tied to the H.S. Her organization is far more corrupt, but they are open about their dirt.

    Newkirk is a co-founder of PETA. She and Alex Pacheco staged the "evidence" for animal cruelty in the infamous Silver Springs monkey case. The monkeys were being used to research the brain's ability to reorganize and remap after catastrophic injury due to stroke or trauma. The animals had had certain nerve pathways cut and were in the process of regaining function in the affected limbs when the PETA cofounders infiltrated the research facility and staged the evidence that they turned over to police.

    In the course of the investigation and trials, PETA relocated the animals thousands of miles away which induced 'transportation fever" and anxiety in the animals. The main researcher was ultimately cleared of all charges and was able to regain his good name eventually but the crime set back stroke research in the U.S. for years. Eventually the animals were recovered but they could only be examined shortly before being euthanized when they reached old age. Because of PETA's intervention, the animals did not recover function in their limbs and were crippled for life. Animals used in the exact same research (which was completed) did regain full function, added to neurological studies helping brain injury victims today, and lived normal lives. PETA was directly responsible for the permanent injuries suffered by the Silver Spring monkeys.

    The aim of PETA is to eliminate all contact between humans and all animals at some future point. They are not simply vegans. They hope to create a future where humans are incarcerated in urban compounds and forbidden from having pets, therapy animals, or service animals. :mad:

    Anyone who denies this has not looked very closely into this evil organization.

    When they look, all they can see are the naked coeds.
