FEDERAL ANIMAL RIGHTS LEGISLATIVE INFORMATIONHUMAN RIGHTS vs. ANIMAL RIGHTS

 

Jan 2014 update: We defeated PUPS in 2008, 2010, and 2012 but Animal Rights & HSUS's government connections (and $$$) defeated breeders with the 2013 USDA/APHIS regulations.

asking the director of the IRS to investigate the HSUS; now Frank is asking us to band together to

stop this (HSUS) PUPS bill.  Contrary to

 

      click to share this article    

 

another group's opinion that we should "let

Based on my 20 years of Lobbying

HSUS is methodically executing a "Behind-the-Scenes

Strategy,"
with the help of several Members of

 

      click to share this article    

 

Congress, to ensure that the PUPS Bill is enacted this year for the following reasons:

    HSUS has ballyhooed the Animal Crush Video Bill (H.R 5566), which passed the House on July 21, 2010 by a vote of 416 to only three votes in opposition. Significantly, nearly 300 House Members had co-sponsored this Bill. That is why House Rules on voting for this Bill were suspended. The horrific images used to gather Congressional support for this Animal Crush Video Bill will consciously and subliminally carry over in the minds of many Members of Congress and their respective staffs.

    HSUS is masterful with its use of subliminal messages and resonating, horrific images that have framed the Public's "misperceptions"uot; about all breeders.

    HSUS has spent millions of dollars on advertising on the FOX Network. These ads on FOX raise the following question: Why would uld HSUS not run the same ads on other major networks, unless there was an ulterior motive? Unquestionably, HSUS is seeking donations as part of its "Factory Fundraising" efforts. However, a secondary and major subliminal purpose of using the FOX Network is to reach out to conservative Republicans, who historically have not scored well on the HSUS Congressional Scorecard. HSUS is politically streetwise and savvy, and it knows that Conservative Republicans are more apt to watch FOX, and "coincidentally" see the HSUS ads, which contain gut-wrenching" images of dogs and puppies. This is done not only to try and gather support for more co-sponsors on the PUPS Bill, but more importantly, to reduce and mute opposition to the inevitable efforts of the HSUS to orchestrate a "Sneak Attack" amendment to a "Must Pass Bill," such as an Appropriations Bill for funding the USDA.

    "Sneak Attacks" are by their very nature sneaky and designed to use the element of surprise to one's advantage. In short, you do not publicly tell your potential opposition of your plan of attack against responsible breeders until it is too late to stop the orchestrated "attack!!!!"

    Why would the HSUS use a "Sneak Attack" for the PUPS Bill???  In March of 2009, during a Workshop sponsored by the Georgetown Law School and the HSUS, Congressman Moran from VA, who was a Congressional Panelist at the Workshop, was asked the following question: "Why is it so hard for us to amend the Animal Welfare Act, and how can we do it? His response was chilling, and the gist of what he said is as follows: The best way to overcome opposition is to wait until the eleventh hour and add a late night, last minute amendment to a "Must Pass Bill," such as an Appropriations Bill, so that there will be no time for opposition to kill the amendment. Significantly, Congressman Moran is on the Appropriations Committee!

    I respectfully submit that

  1.  

          click to share this article    

     

     

          click to share this article    

     

    Is the "perceived problem" and "need" for the

     

          click to share this article    

     

    PUPS Bill caused by the so-called internet sales

     

          click to share this article    

     

    "loophole," or by simply an inability of APHIS

     

          click to share this article    

     

    to enforce existing laws and regulations? In

     

          click to share this article    

     

    short, would the "perceived problem" and "need"

     

          click to share this article    

     

    be best addressed by more strictly enforcing the

     

          click to share this article    

     

    existing laws and regulations, rather than

     

          click to share this article    

     

    adding new laws and regulations onto the

     

          click to share this article    

     

    existing laws and regulations that may not have

          click to share this article    

     

    Is it the intent of Congress to mandate that

    if someone has as few as one intact female dog

     

          click to share this article
