Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened. ~Anatole France
If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. ~Chief Seattle of the Suquamish Tribe, letter to President Franklin Pierce
If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men. ~St. Francis of Assisi
People who love their pets consider them part of the family and as such, many of us treat them as though they are our "children." Dogs and cats are special four legged creatures to many of us, and we cherish them. The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and UN Agenda 21 are working together to destroy not only America's agricultural industries, but also the ownership of our pets.
How do you destroy agriculture, including the pet industry, in America?
Answer: Regulate them out of business:
Raise the cost of growing our food and breeding animals.
• Which reduces the total production and availability of food and animals.
• Thereby, weakening the economic structure of agribusiness and the pet industry.
Below is a map from The Calvary Group showing the connections between UN Agenda 21, HSUS, and the purposeful destruction of the agricultural and pet industries in the United States.
HSUS, CEO Wayne Pacelle
One of the biggest scams in US history is conning people into believing their donated funds are being used/invested as intended and advertised. The marketing campaign by the HSUS is no different. Less than 1% of the $130 million yearly budget from donations, which good people send to HSUS in order to save abandoned animals, goes to local pet shelters to save these animals. Instead the HSUS has socked away more than $17 million dollars in its own pension fund. CEO, Wayne Pacelle, and HSUS are now spending these monies for their defense in court over a racketeering lawsuit. [Link], [Link] Well paid lawyers, lobbyists, and the HSUS pension fund are all supported by donations intended for shelter animals which never reach the animals. If nothing else in this article means anything to you, please give to your local no-kill shelters directly, rather than giving to HSUS.
Wayne Pacelle is the president and CEO of the (HSUS). He took over the helm of the organization in 2004 after being a part of HSUS for over 10 years. Pacelle attended Yale University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in environmental studies and history in 1987. By the time he graduated, he was already a radical activist. Pacelle was a vegan by 19 and, as a 21-year-old Yale student, he was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor for harassing hunters. Wayne Pacelle is 47 years old, a registered lobbyist, and is engaged to Al Jazeera reporter Lisa Fletcher.
Like many other non-profits we've heard about, there is big money to be made for those who run the organization. Here are the links for the 2009 IRS 990, the 2010 IRS 990, and the 2011 IRS 990 forms for HSUS who is a 501(c)3 tax exempt, non-profit organization. The 2011 IRS 990 shows Pacelle's salary as $268,226. and other compensation as $31,295. They spend $8.5 million a year on marketing, $7.7 million a year on direct response, $2.3 million on fundraising consultants, and $1.6 million on print management. The lowest salary paid is a 20 hour a week assistant secretary at $57,000. Nice work if you can get it! Remember, this is more than two years ago. Scroll through their net assets and expenditures, I believe you'll find it interesting.
HSUS is an extremist animal rights group that deceptively portrays itself as an animal welfare organization in order to procure monetary donations from animal loving Americans. Pacelle directs millions of dollars given to HSUS towards animal rights activism in the media, state legislatures, congress and the courtroom by launching attacks on farmers, hunters, circuses, meat-eating, and furriers. Pacelle’s goal is to advance the vegan agenda of animal “liberation” by engaging in massive fundraising campaigns to raise the money necessary for his expensive and destructive attacks.
In 1991, Pacelle spoke out against the United States Forest Service, saying that the agency should not clear land to allow for cattle grazing. Pacelle has consistently opposed all animal farming, telling Animal People News, “We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding… One generation and out. We have no problems with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding.”
In California in 2008, Pacelle succeeding in getting Proposition 2 passed which imposed mandates on housing for pregnant pigs and egg-laying chickens. Before the vote, the University of California at Davis conducted an analysis of the impact of this legislation. Their results showed Prop 2 would be the almost complete elimination of egg production in California within six years. Pacelle wants this nationwide!
Pacelle obviously comes naturally to this stance. Back in 1987 he ran for Alderman in New Haven, Connecticut. (He lost.) Pacelle ran as a member of the Green Party, who embrace the same stances as UN Agenda 21 with no farming/ranching, no hunting, no fishing, no domestic pets, and strict human population control. See [here], [here], [here], and [here]—about the longstanding alliance between the environmental and animal rights movements.
Back in 1987, the national platform for the Green Party created a plan called, "Ethical Treatment of Animals." This, of course, hasn't anything to do with the care and concern for puppies and kittens.
We are firmly committed to the eventual abolition by law of animal
• We encourage vegetarianism for ethical, ecological, and health reasons …
• Steps should be taken to begin phasing out intensive confinement systems of livestock production
• Hunting, trapping, and fishing for sport should be prohibited …
• We strongly discourage any further breeding of companion animals …
• We call for an end to the use of animals in entertainment and sports such as … rodeos, circuses … [and] quasi-educational institutions such as zoos and aquariums
The official 2010 version of the Green Party platform reads like a combination of PETA and HSUS. (Check out the latest on PETA hunting hunters). This is the dream of Wayne Pacelle, the destruction of America's agricultural industries as well as the proper and good breeding of companion animals. Wayne Pacelle attitude is shown his his statement, “In fact, I don’t want to see another cat or dog born.” Say goodbye to your dogs, cats, horses, pot bellied pigs, etc. unless you choose to fight
Remember convicted dog fighting kingpin, Michael Vick? Well, HSUS and Wayne Pacelle came out on Vick's side, stating he should be allowed to own dogs again. Wayne told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Vick (not Vick’s family¬) “would do a good job as a pet owner.” HSUS raised tons of donation dollars on-line to "care for the seized dogs," but the truth was, HSUS and Pacelle wanted all of Vick's fighting dogs euthanized. Much to his chagrin, all but eight of the dogs were rehabilitated. Personally, I wouldn't let Vick near another four legged creature, but a $50,000 donation to HSUS from the Philadelphia Eagles obviously eased Pacelle's conscience.
HSUS and Maurice Strong
Former UN Secretary General Maurice Strong called on the United Nations to “cause the collapse of America." Maurice Strong is a board member of the HSUS and founder of “Agenda 21.” You can buy the forty chapter book sold by the UN, laying out the proposed policies for their agenda for the 21st century, which is designed to achieve Maurice Strong’s goal to “cause the collapse of America.”
Strong advocates using non-governmental organizations like the HSUS to incrementally implement the policies in the Agenda 21 proposal at the state and local level to ultimately achieve his goal. In 1987, the HSUS established the James Herriot Award to be given to people or groups who promoted animal welfare. Both Maurice Strong, and Albert Gore have received this award from HSUS. What does that tell you? [Link] In reality they're promoting the elimination of private small breeders, not the big puppy mills. Small breeders do it for the love of the animals, for the temperament, the looks, the health of the animal, and of course to win blue ribbons! HSUS and Strong want them taxed, registered, regulated, raided and priced out of their small businesses and hobby of raising puppies to be placed in good homes. North and South Carolina have fought off attempt after attempt from HSUS to do just that!
From the article, What I Learned at the Dog Show:
As with pretty much every group of ranchers, dairymen, biomedical research scientists, and chicken farmers I’ve met, the breeders I spoke with this weekend had varying levels of awareness about the looming political threat from HSUS. Some of them can’t be bothered to be bothered. Others are fired up at the mere mention of Wayne Pacelle’s name.
“Somebody has to take that guy on,” one 50-ish man barked when I brought up the name of HSUS's CEO. “That whole movement is nuts. After I showed up to lobby against HSUS’s last North Carolina breeder tax, I started getting calls in the middle of the night, untraceable phone calls, from these people saying they were going to come on my property, take my dogs, and burn my house down. I told ‘em my new rifle has an awesome night scope. That pretty much ended it.”
I spoke to the crowd after the Best In Show was awarded, in this case to a fluffy Pekingese named “Noelle.” I told them that their problem is the same as the one faced by pork producers, egg farmers, dairymen, and even cancer researchers. But it was up to them to reach beyond their circle of friends—outside their comfort zone—if their kids and grandkids were going to keep being Junior Handlers and continue to raise the dog breeds they’ve come to love.
Veterinarians understand the dangers of HSUS, PETA and similar organizations. Watch Dr. Ron DeHaven, the Executive Vice President of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), speaking in August of 2009.
Dr. DeHaven takes to task the Humane Society of the United States, and specifically HSUS CEO, Wayne Pacelle, for favoring scare tactics and emotionalism over science and real expertise:
There is an outright effort by both HSUS and the UN to make all of the animal cruelty laws felonies. Remember, the UN Agenda 21 supporters within our government know the majority of rural Americans are gun owners. Ranchers and farmers need to own firearms to protect their animals and property. They make up a large percentage of America's animal owners used for agricultural purposes. If the animal right extremists of the HSUS can successfully make all animal cruelty laws felonies, then rural people convicted of animal cruelty by protecting their domesticated and ranch animals from wolves, bears, mountain lions, or by raising stock for market, etc., they will then become felons. Felons cannot own firearms. The Federal Government would then be allowed to deprive rural Americans of their constitutional rights to own, possess, and harvest their livestock, as well as depriving them of their right to keep and bear arms.
The biggest obstacle of the UN Agenda 21 advocates at this time is the U.S. Constitution, the Second Amendment, and guns in the hands of Americans. The global elitists within America must institute policies which will remove as many guns as possible from American citizens. This includes all the politicians both state and federal, who are supporting the UN Agenda "to cause the collapse of America" and end America's sovereignty in order to bring America under the UN control.
Wayne Pacelle is using misguided Americans to destroy America. The HSUS propaganda machine has intentionally lied to and misled people who care about shelter animals, and who donate to HSUS.
What would James Madison think of municipal police forces tricked out with military gear invading animal shelters for the crime of nursing a baby deer? What would Patrick Henry say if he saw the nation’s working people meekly lining up to be shorn every April 15? And on and on....
Any elected official that is NOT working to repeal every piece of legislation that the HSUS has ever brought about and/or supported is negligent in their duties and supporting Maurice Strong’s efforts to “cause the collapse of America."

Some people within our government are working along with Maurice Strong and the HSUS attempting to “cause the collapse of America” by destroying America’s agriculture industries and small breeders. (Think about all the dogs who help the blind, and disabled). [Link]
I urge you to send this article to everyone you know. Our food sources, and our beloved animal companions are in danger because of groups like HSUS and Maurice Strong's UN Agenda 21. Please fight any HSUS legislation. Put on your full armor and fight and pray. Please also support your local no-kill animal shelters with a few dollars or a bag of food.
