bdolphin_150 The US Navy has proposed high frequency underwater sound testing in Hawaii, California and Atlantic coasts, and the Gulf of Mexico starting 2014. According to the Navy's own estimates this testing will deafen 15,900 whales and dolphins and kill 1,800 more over the next five years. Strandings and deaths of cetaceans have already been attributed to the US Navy's use of high frequency sonar. These are feeling, sentient, highly intelligent mammals who feel love, pain, fear and suffering just as we do. They are truly gentle beings with a capacity for compassion, generosity and love at least equal to ours.

The Navy also wants to practice shooting high powered explosives that fatally injure the lungs and other organs of marine mammals. This is horrifying and insane. The use of spent munitions and depleted uranium in our oceans and elsewhere is an environmental holocaust, one that international judiciary bodies have already warned against due to cancer clusters in soldiers, animals and civilians in countries where we have used these munitions.

This bears repeating, folks: the United States Navy plans to detonate in a testing exercise more than 50,000 explosives underwater up and down the US coastline, as well as more than 10,000 hours of high intensity sonar that is so forceful it can explode the internal organs of whales and other sea creatures. Dolphins, whales and other innocent sea creatures will die for this, or be made deaf, their lives disrupted and destroyed. For nothing. No threat, no war, nothing. Just a sick, perverse, irretrievably stupid military force completely out of control and insane with arrogance, hostility and blood lust. Do you believe your Navy and Secretary of Defense protect you? From this senseless plan, it's clear they themselves are the threat, as cruel, out of control, toxic and dangerous as any in history. This does nothing for national security; in fact it weakens it. Clearly, our government is run by hostile, sick, out of control psychopaths and we need to wake up to this fact, now. Now, if you have children or you're a teacher will have the courage to tell them the truth? This is what your government and military does: this exercise in cruel, senseless atrocity. This is what it is: sick, pointless, out of control, destructive moral cowards who eviscerate precious innocent marine mammals for nothing. I have a friend who told me a story about someone he knew in the military. He and his buddies were sitting around bored one day, took some sheep they had at the base, and put them in an old abandoned tank. They shot the tank with a depleted uranium weapon, just to see what would happen. The sheep did not suffer the way these poor dolphins and whales will; they were killed instantly, liquified. This, however, is the same mentality driving the Navy's proposal. Men with these kinds of toys eventually want to shoot them off. It's natural and predictable. In the absence of any real threat, our Navy just wants to shoot its weapons off. What a truly atrocious, tragic, cowardly thing for them to do in our oceans, with those beautiful, innocent creatures, along with an entire marine ecosystem the victims. We have so much painful destruction of innocents and of the Earth already; that our officials could approve something like this, and that the Navy would even propose it, is proof that our own government and military is an out of control psychopath. No "Global force for good" would do anything like this, folks. No government that served its people or its nation would allow it. These policies are as uncivilized and as anti-human as anyone can imagine, as much as the Third Reich, as much as any horrifyingly toxic regime in history, and the only response is outrage and immediate call to action for each and all of us to stop these toxic sociopaths.

When you prepare for war all day and see the world in terms of conflict, eventually you want to practice shooting your weapons off. The Navy's position is a sad and predictable symptom of this illness. In truth, this kind of abuse makes us less safe. What are we safe from, if we kill our own precious cetaceans in our own oceans in a testing exercise? If that is the kind of nation we're going to be, we won't be worth saving or protecting anyway.
I am no pacifist. I believe that of the warrior is a legitimate avocation, an honorable one even, but this proposal, and this kind of atrocity, is one of the pitiful coward. There is no honor in this whatsoever, nor the US Navy, nor its commander or Commander In Chief Barack Obama if this pointless, horrific slaughter of innocents and destruction of our fragile ocean mammals goes through.

We do nothing to protect anyone's freedom with this unfeeling brutality; we show the world that we are sick, addicted, out of control and deviant. This does not have to go forward, and we have every ability, right and responsibility to stop it.

The US Navy's slogan is "A global force for good." This will be a sad, ugly comedy if they commit this atrocity against these innocent, feeling mammals. A great warrior would not do this; it is the proposition and the behavior of a brutal coward. I don't have a problem with war, when it's appropriate. A true warrior would protect the innocent and vulnerable, not attack them. In a proposal like this one, the United States has become the bully, become the coward, become the out of control aggressor.

Nearly 500,000 Americans have already signed a petition to prevent this horror. You have the power to speak up and stop this, and I urge you to take action. This link will give you the name and email of your legislators in the US. I have written to and called my Senators and congressman on many issues, and find they encourage and make this process easy. Please call or write. I welcome and invite you to copy in my text above; you are also perfectly free to alter it or write your own. Thank you. Tristan Luke Sullivan Please sign

Farm Sanctuary Interview with Sex and the City star John Corbett

JC: I’ve always had an affinity for pigs. Pigs are kind of like dolphins to me. They have that permanent smile. They’re just sweet creatures.

Fedearl Judge Simeon Timothy Lake III: Moral Coward Who Protects Animal Torturers

Judge Simeon Lake has ruled that animal crush videos are protected by the First Amendment. This decision is one of the most cold hearted, sadistic, short sighted, speciesist, and painfully mistaken we've seen from our judicial branch in recent years. That's saying something. Simeon Timothy Lake III is a sick, toxic, pandering moron of a coward who will eventually face his bigotry, his criminal pandering to sociopaths like Jeffrey Skilling and the sadists who make and consume animal torture videos, and his utter, painful failure as a District Court Judge. Clearly, this man lives his life from a simian level of consciousness.

Just another sad example of an empire and political system gone frightfully wrong, and further proof that citizens with conscience, courage and common sense need to step up and end these atrocities. Government has failed again to show even a basic level of civilization, conscience or feeling.

From Organic Gardening on the White House Lawn to the Profiteering of Cancer, Toxicity and Death.

When our first family moved in, Michelle Obama planted an organic garden at the White House: a beautiful, encouraging and hopeful thing to do. Then, lacking the courage and good sense to veto what is commonly called the "Monsanto Protection Act", HR 933, despite massive protest and a petition of nearly 250,000 signatures, our President sold out every child, woman, man, animal, tree and blade of grass by protecting those sick, coward sociopaths and their cancer of a company.

Rihanna in an Anally Electrocuted Fox Collar

A quick note here: fur animals are anally or vaginally electrocuted. This is how they're killed: in the most cruel, shocking, painful way imaginable. Please, Rihanna, imagine how this would feel for you before you participate in or wear something like this ever again.

Additionally, fur animals are regularly shut in cages in extreme cold temperatures, with no ability to find the shelter any mammal would naturally seek from severely cold weather. This causes their fur to grow thicker. The people who participate in these industries, along with the horrors of factory farming, are involved in some of the most unthinkably cruel practices ever in human history. It is only a matter of time before we overcome our pitifully speciesist view on suffering and pain (It is well documented and demonstrated that all mammals feel love, fear and pain much the same way we do. Or is it more?), and abolish these horrors. Until then, anyone participating in them will, in my opinion, eventually experience a life review in which they feel everything they've done to another feeling being: kind, thoughtful, helpful, or unthinkably cruel.

2/8/13 This is my prayer and hope for the safety and freedom of these beautiful, sentient creatures, and the quick end and dissolution of the extremely corrupt cowards of militarism and global hegemony, in this case the US Navy, who would perpetrate such senseless and horrifying atrocity. Do you believe we live in anything remotely resembling a democracy when this kind of gruesome horror can go on? We do not. We'd better take it back fast. Future generations will see this stuff as quite equal to the unfeeling arrogance and crimes of the Nazi doctors. Tristan L. Sullivan
