    HSUS “Meatless” Book Spoils on Shelves
    May 31, 2017 10:55 am

    We previously wrote about the excessive book tour taken by Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) CEO Wayne Pacelle, who made 100 stops for his book The Bond, including an event halfway around the world in India. It seems others are following his lead.

    HSUS’ employee Kristie Middleton recently published MeatLess: Transform the Way You Eat and Live – One Meat at a Time, a lifestyle book that outlines methods to reduce, and ultimately eliminate, animal products from a diet. The book has seen poor sales and currently ranks #349,211 in books on Amazon.com less than three months after its release.

    Let’s put it this way: The book is beat by the likes of Everyone Poops. And the Amazon reviews are inflated by her own co-workers giving it 5 stars.

    As a former lettuce-bikini model for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), it’s no wonder that she’s written a book that lays out a blueprint to giving up meat entirely. Unfortunately, the poor sales of the book indicate that the masses would rather eat a traditional, broad-spectrum diet than a contrived, faux-moral diet. Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-smoking Manifesto ranks at #228 on Amazon. And Plant Paradox, about “the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl,” is #87.

    The militant-vegan agenda peddled by PETA and perpetuated by HSUS seeks to take away the choice of meat lovers everywhere by driving up the cost of animal products and banning meat outright – making it harder for people to afford or acquire their choice of food—or simply to scare people away from eating meat with pseudoscientific propaganda about how eating meat is supposedly bad for one’s health. (Never mind that the world’s oldest woman ate bacon daily until she passed away at 116 last year.)

    At least two other vegan activists at HSUS are working on books for release this year. Two questions: Will they perform better, or worse, than books on scatology? And how much on-the-clock time are these guys spending writing and researching these likely flops, with their salaries being funded by charitable donations—money that could be spent giving hands-on care for animals?

    HSUS Dishonesty, Part 1,453J
    un 02, 2017 10:11 am


    One of the things people hate most about politicians and politics is the rank dishonesty that exists in how they speak—or double-speak—about issues. Look no further than a blog post this week from HSUS CEO and lobbyist Wayne Pacelle. Pacelle blogged about the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear an appeal from several state attorneys […]

    Animal Rights Activists Slam HSUS (Again)
    Jun 06, 2017 04:24 pm

    While there’s a lot for the average Joe to dislike about the extremist Humane Society of the United States, the group also isn’t well loved in the animal rights community, some of whose members see HSUS as a money-grubbing outfit willing to sell out on its principles. The latest internal feud comes from Vermont, where activists […]

    Target Rips Hampton Creek Off its Shelves
    Jun 30, 2017 03:33 pm

    We’ve highlighted the woes that HSUS-financed Hampton Creek Foods has suffered in the past, ranging from investigations of financial misconduct to alleged sexual impropriety, but perhaps the most devastating blow to the beleaguered vegan startup occurred last week. Bloomberg reports that Target has voluntarily removed all Hampton Creek “Just” brand products from its shelves after detailed accusations surfaced that listeria and salmonella were […]

    District Attorney Investigating HSUS
    Jul 07, 2017 10:56 am

    The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) isn’t known for spending its money well. Only about 1% of its revenue goes to help shelter pets while millions go to pensions and Caribean “investments,” but recent news out of Georgia shows another side of the organization’s poor management. HSUS sent a hidden camera to […]

    Failed HSUS Ordinance Steals Thousands from Charity
    July 14, 2017 03:05 pm

    Yet another city has tabled an HSUS-backed ordinance to ban circuses in its city limits. The committee in Newark, OH charged with deciding the proposal’s fate decided not to send it to the full city council. A bi-partisan majority, two Democrats and two Republicans, refrained from seconding the motion to vote, effectively killing the proposed law. Unfortunately, […]

    AZA Giving HSUS Opportunity to Plug HSUSJul 19, 2017 09:01 am

    The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) is the largest zoo accrediting group in the United States, and is part of a worldwide network of accredited zoological institutions that contribute greatly to animal conservation and public education. The existence of zoos, however, is threatened by radical animal rights groups including HSUS and PETA, who have […]
