SICK!! Undercover footage shows the HORRIFIC conditions inside one of America’s biggest chicken farms

Published

on

Disturbing undercover footage from one of America’s biggest chicken farms has shed light on the appalling conditions in which the birds are kept.

Two contract farmers, Mike Weaver and Eric Hedrick from West Virginia, working for poultry behemoth, Pillgrim’s Pride, decided to speak out about the treatment after the company sent a mysterious letter explaining that no one apart from ‘essential people’, should be allowed into their chicken houses.

They referenced confidentiality and biosecurity obligations. If the farmers violated this it would be considered a terminable offence.

Undercover: Equipped with secret cameras two farmers filmed inside the chicken houses - revealing the horrifying reality of chicken farming.

Capture

The farmers and Pilgrim’s Pride work using the method of integrated production, which means the farmers own the farms and chicken houses, while the company provides birds, feed and other inputs so the farmers can raise the birds.

The two men came forward to work with Leah Garces, the director of Compassion in World Farming USA, despite risks of losing their contracts and income to show to the world what exactly the company were hiding. 

Equipped with secret cameras the brave men filmed inside the chicken houses – revealing the horrifying reality of chicken farming.

The gruesome footage shows close-ups of the dying, abandoned birds – some discolored dark red, purple and green and others a bloody mess of rotting flesh and feathers.

‘About a year and a half ago we started getting gangrenous dermatitis, Hedrick explains to Garces – just one of the many problems facing chickens and their farmers.

‘It’s almost like the bird is eaten from the inside out, like its rotten from the inside out… alive,’ he says.

Gangrenous dermatitis is a bacteria that infects soft tissue, causing disturbing skin lesions on chickens like the ones pictured in the video.

Fast-growing chicken breeds often have poor immune function, making them more susceptible to disease. Plus, the crowded, dirty, and warm environments they are kept in are perfect for such bacterial disease to thrive.

‘They’re ugly,’ Hedrick adds, ‘when you pick them up their skin moves underneath your hands.’

‘We’re not allowed to do anything with the birds unless it’s approved by the company,’ Hedrick says.

The video shows him walking among the chickens carrying two buckets, because, he explains to Garces, ‘there are so many dead birds and it will take almost two buckets in get around the house in one trip.’

A second disease ravaging the birds is enteritis, which eats the lining of the intestine.

Helen Hedrick, another farmer, speaks of how when they went in there was ‘bloody poop lying all over the floor’ – a truly revolting sight.

She adds, ‘Consumers do not know anything about their food or they would be disgusted and they wouldn’t eat chicken at all, because I’m not sure I’m going to eat it anymore.’

Another problem for chickens is bad genetics. ‘After the first week you start seeing a lot of chickens with leg sticking out to the side,’ Weaver says.

‘Some of the birds just grow so fast they’ve can’t move too much.’

The disturbing footage shows one chicken with its legs so splayed it can hardly walk.

These chickens’ legs just can’t support their weight of their own unnaturally large breasts – developed especially for meat.

‘They’ll get up, they’ll eat and they’ll sit back down,’ explains Hedrick, ‘They can’t stay up for any length of time.

‘It’s like an 800lb person, they can’t walk,’ Weaver says.

The genetics of these birds are unnaturally played with to make a baby bird grow to the size of a full-size chicken in the space of just five weeks  – a technique that helps keep the price of chicken low.

‘It’s heart and its frame cannot sustain this bird,’ Hedrick points out, as the footage focuses on a sizeable, yet incredibly unhealthy looking chicken; its flesh too extended to be fully covered by feathers.

This fast growth can have other dire consequences for the birds, such as leg deformities, heart attacks, foodpad dermatitis, hockburns, and more. 

On top of that, the birds are kept in overcrowded houses with no access to natural light or the outdoors, and denied enrichment that encourages natural behavior.

The farmers are shocked that deformities in the birds are happening on such a big scale.

However, bound by contract and living in debt, it’s hard to blame the workers as they have no control over operations.

When explaining why he took the risk to film the houses Hedrick said: ‘They have put us in such a place, we are one step from bankruptcy but we are going down fighting. So many family farmers are in the same place but don’t want to say anything for the fear of retaliation.

‘We don’t want to lose everything we have and have fought to keep because of greedy corporate agriculture. The future is very grim for our children in agriculture. We should never have to worry how we were going to buy groceries for our family.

‘This is why……….If not me then who, if not now then when?’

If it was up to him, Weaver says, he would change the genetics of the bird and making them more robust, and not just breed them for larger breasts. ‘I would try to breed in natural immunities, and good bones and joints.’

Compassion in World Farming director Garces told MailOnline: ‘When the farmers presented their footage to me, it was more horrific than I was prepared for- birds so diseased that they were rotting alive, their welfare so compromised by their fast growth rate that they could barely walk.

‘The bravery of these farmers that risked everything to bring this story to the public cannot be celebrated enough.

‘These animals are sentient beings, no less so than our dogs or cats. What the industry has done here is nothing short of morally repugnant and needs to be urgently overhauled.’

The team have called for Pilgrim’s Pride to take more responsibility for their birds and encourage the public to get involved in speaking out.

Company spokesman, Cameron Bruett told MailOnline: ‘Pilgrim’s holds a fundamental belief that healthy birds result in high quality chicken products. Each day, thousands of family farmers across the country work hard to produce healthy chickens.

‘Death loss can occur on farms, but this is rarely due to animal cruelty, as there is no economic or ethical incentive to purposely harm animals.

‘We strive to treat our chickens with care and respect and train our contract growers annually on animal welfare. Pilgrim’s technicians and veterinarians work alongside our growers to ensure that production practices promote animal well-being and result in healthy, wholesome products.

‘No incident cited in recent media reports has impacted food safety or human health.

‘Our commitment to the quality and safety of our products and the humane treatment of the animals under our care remains unfettered. We look forward to working with our growers to continue to produce the high quality products consumers have come to expect and enjoy from Pilgrim’s.’

The company is yet to respond to Weaver and Hedrick regarding their future at Pilgrims.

Currently the Brazilian-owned, American food company is the second-largest chicken producer in the world and has the capacity to process more than 34 million birds per week for a total of more than over 7 billion pounds of live chicken annually  – a number that cannot be obtained through natural farming techniques alone.

Fortunately there are some independent food label programs that have meaningful animal welfare standards.

Certification program, Global Animal Partnership (GAP), recently committed to slower-growth rate genetics and ensuring more space, enrichment, and natural light for all chickens by 2024.

The eight year phase-in applies to over 600 GAP rated farms and 277 million chickens. This is especially significant because Whole Foods Market requires all fresh and frozen chicken sold in their stores to be GAP certified.

Whole Foods announced its decision to sell chicken with more traditional genetics last month.

Trump Just Exposed Obama’s SICKENING Connection To Border Agents Gruesome Murder

Trump is pissed!

Published

on

Federal officials said on Monday the Border Patrol agent killed Sunday in west Texas was ambushed by Illegal Aliens who beat him in the head with large rocks.

Officials have yet to provide official details about this gruesome incident, but the union representing Border Patrol agents described the attack on the 36-year-old Agent Rogelio Martinez and his partner, as they responded to reports of suspicious activity in the Big Bend area of El Paso Texas. Martinez later died at a local area hospital and his partner, whose name was not yet been released, was in serious condition but expected to live.

Authorities added:

“What we know is that Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez appears to have been ambushed by a group of illegal aliens whom he was tracking. Our agents’ reports from the ground say that he was struck in the head multiple times with a rock or rocks,” said Brandon Judd, a Border Patrol agent and president of the San Diego-based National Border Patrol Council union that represents 16,000 agents.

“The other agent arrived on scene a short time later and was also ambushed and struck in the head with what is believed to have been a rock or rocks,” Judd said. “These disgusting acts and complete disregard for human life need to stop immediately. Family members of slain Agent Martinez will never get to see him come home again all because we have failed to secure our borders from such criminals.”

Couple all this with the fact that almost one-third of the 214 U.S. based MS-13 gang members who were arrested in an international sweep last week were invited into the United States under former President Barack Hussein Obama’s “Unaccompanied Alien Children” policy and we have quite the mess on our hands.

Via Breitbart:

One-Third of 214 Arrested MS-13 Gangsters Were ‘Unaccompanied Alien Children’

Almost one-third of 214 U.S.-based MS-13 gang members arrested in an international sweep were invited into the United States by President Barack Obama’s “Unaccompanied Alien Children” policy.
The successful “Raging Bull’ sweep was announced by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Deputy Director Tom Homan in a joint press conference at ICE headquarters in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.

The operation is a “significant step towards dismantling and eradicating MS-13 in the United States and in El Salvador,” said Deputy Assistant Attorney General David Rybicki, the second-ranking official at DOJ’s Criminal Division. El Salvador police also arrested 53 gang members in El Salvador.

Sixteen of the 214 arrestees in the United States are U.S. citizens. Five were legal immigrants.

Ninety-three of 214 arrestees are charged with federal or state criminal offenses and will face prison time in the United States, said Derek Benner, the deputy executive associate director of the Homeland Security Investigations division.

The group of 214 include 193 illegal aliens, including 121 arrestees who will be deported but will not face criminal charges.

Sixty-four of the 193 illegals – nearly one in three – are would-be “dreamers” because they illegally crossed the border while claiming to be minors. Their unscreened claims to be children — not adults — won them the legal status of “Unaccompanied Alien Children,” which allowed them to claim federal aid and be released into the United States.

The status was provided by Obama’s administration, which was seeking ways to welcome migrants from Central America into the United States. That invite spiraled out of control, resulting in a huge wave of migrants in 2014, which helped Donald Trump get elected.

“Definitely some UACs end up being bad people and enter the country to do bad things,” said Homan, who is serving as acting ICE director and was nominated on Tuesday by Trump to head the agency. “That’s why we asked for several policy changes in [the requests] we sent to the Hill.”

Criminal charges against the 214 gang-members include racketeering and conspiracy to commit murder in the furtherance of racketeering. According to Rybicki, an entire eight-man MS-13 “clique” (a local division of a gang) was arrested in the operation. This “Sailors Clique” operated in suburban Maryland, a hotspot of MS-13 activity, and has been linked to at least three murders.

U.S. Border Patrol Deputy Chief Scott Luck explained that the operation worked with El Salvadoran intelligence agencies to identify people with links to MS-13.

The gang was created in Los Angeles during the 1980s because the U..S government failed to enforce immigration laws, which allowed El Salvador youths to sneak into the United States. Without economic skills in California’s diverse society, they formed their own national gang — and then recreated that gang in their own homeland once the illegal immigrants were repatriated home.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Francis Cissna explained that his agency’s work to identify illegal aliens with gang affiliations was vital to Raging Bull’s success. USCIS had one of its Fraud Detection and National Security Directorate (FDNS) agents at the Raging Bull command center full time to work to that effect. “That individual reviewed asylum claims for MS-13 members targeted by the operation and assisted in assembling target packages for the immigration and/or criminal court proceedings of these gang members arrested during the operation,” Cissna said.

As Attorney General Jeff Sessions bemoaned in October, gang members and other unworthy illegal aliens often use the United States’s generous asylum policies to tie up their cases in administrative proceedings, often needing only a “credible claim” of persecution in their home country to avoid deportation for years.

“FDNS also notified ICE HSI regarding asylum applicants with strong ties to MS-13 or other significant gang indicators,” Cissna continued. “Our headquarters FDNS officers search USCIS systems for information regarding 195 targeted MS-13 members and associates identified by the operation for additional vetting.”

Operation Raging Bull carries on a series of nationwide and international efforts against the brutal gang. In July, Attorney General Sessions went to El Salvador to announce nearly 600 arrests in that country. Earlier in the summer, ICE’s “Operation Matador” netted dozens of arrests in the United States.

El Salvador police also arrested 53 gang members in el Salvador.

This is what decades of globalism have done to our nation. From George HW. Bush to Bill Clinton, to George W. Bush, to Barack Hussein Obama to almost another Bush. Our nation is starting to resemble a third world cesspool. One that’s filled with the terror of MS-13 thanks to politicians who never have to leave their fortresses and don’t have to deal with the fall out these people cause. They don’t have to compete for the same jobs nor do they have to share the same streets with them. This is why President Donald J. Trump was elected. Because American Citizens are sick and tired of seeing what is being done to our glorious nation in the name of political correctness, globalism, and diversity. Enough is enough!

Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott has offered a generous $20,000 reward for information on Agent Martinez’s death. Those with tips are asked to call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-252-8477.

BREAKING SCANDAL: Major Democrat Lawmakers Going Down After What They Did To Women On Secret DC Flights

This is bad!

Published

on

The reports of scandals in Washington seem to be growing in number by the day, and as far as most conservatives are concerned, that’s a really good thing. The lack of outrage on the part of Republicans when icons like Harvey Weinstein was probably extremely confusing for many on the left. Becuase while conservatives promote a scandal-free lifestyle, we don’t live with our heads in the sand.

Most of us just assumed that this madness was happening in Hollywood and Washington, but that the deep pockets doing the dirty deeds were keeping it quiet. As it turns out, we were right, and the recent flood of reports of abuse of power and outright criminal aggression only further confirms our suspicion that the PC utopia that the left wants to push off as the end result of the nation giving in the liberalism is no more than a sham.

If there were any more proof needed that the misconduct in Washington is completely out of control, The Gateway Pundit reports that a new Democrat might be taking the prize for most willing to spend taxpayer dollars on his abuse of power. Representative John Conyers is being accused of not only harassing more than one woman but flying them around, on our dime:

“As TGP previously reported, according to Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, claims against Democrat Al Franken are the ‘very tip of the congressional iceberg.’

The ‘next wave,’ is coming, says Swan.

Congress has a rampant sexual harassment problem. In fact, the problem is so bad that female lawmakers and aides keep a ‘creep list’ of men who are notorious for lewd behavior.

It was revealed Monday evening that one Congressman who settled a harassment suit in 2015 was Democrat Rep John Conyers. According to affidavits, Conyers used taxpayer money to fly women into D.C. to meet with him in hotel rooms!

The documents were first provided to BuzzFeed News by Mike Cernovich.

Independent journalist Mike Cernovich teased from his Twitter account Sunday evening following the Axios report. ‘Ranking Democrat on major committee accused of several harassment by multiple women. Huge scandal. Developing…’ Cernovich tweeted.

On Monday Cernovich tweeted ‘Tonight’ over his Sunday night teaser.”

It’s become increasingly evident that media bias keeps some of these reports from us, but you know that things have gotten very bad when even an ultra-liberal outlet, like Buzzfeed, is ready to spill the dirt on the Dems and their shady deals.

“Buzzfeed reports:

‘Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances.”

Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public. Four people involved with the case verified the documents are authentic.

Buzzfeed also reported that staffers were tasked with flying women in for Conyers using Congressional resources!

‘One affidavit from a former female employee states that she was tasked with flying in women for the congressman. “One of my duties while working for Rep. Conyers was to keep a list of women that I assumed he was having affairs with and call them at his request and, if necessary, have them flown in using Congressional resources,” said her affidavit. (A second staffer alleged in an interview that Conyers used taxpayer resources to fly women to him.)’

Former employees also said that Conyers made it very clear that if they performed ‘personal favors’ it would lead to salary increases and promotions. It was well known Conyers was having affairs with multiple female staffers. He often made sexual advances towards women and grew angry if they brought their husbands around.

Even more egregious, Conyers’ victims were paid a settlement in exchange for their silence out of taxpayer money after a long, daunting process.

John Boehner was House Speaker when these settlements were made. Buzzfeed reached out to his spox and they have not responded with [a] comment.

Conyers’ wife is also a crook. As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, former Detroit City Council President Monica Conyers was sentenced to 37 months in prison for bribery charges in March of 2010.

Read the full report by Buzzfeed here.”

If ever there were a time for a full inquiry and swamp draining, now is the time. We’re at a point where no one is able to trust their representatives because of who might be covering for whom. According to Representative Jackie Speier, a Democrat from California, you and I, the taxpayers, have paid upwards of $15million in sexual harassment lawsuits against members of Congress.  And that’s just the funds we know of, not counting what is being covered up elsewhere.

Washington has been run by dirty politicians for far too long, it’s time to take back our representation and send congressmen and women with integrity.

BREAKING: Top Clinton Donor Just Found Dead Days Before Indictments Due

Hillary should be in prison!

Published

on

The number of deaths close to the Clintons is climbing by the day. What might have once been brushed off as coincidences are fast becoming an epidemic that won’t be ignored for much longer. Even if there are politicians who consider themselves to be above the law, the American people don’t feel the same way, and it’s getting very easy to connect the dots.

Donors to the Clinton Foundation are numerous, but few have raised seven figures for the former presidential candidate. Those who have were no doubt on the short list for the would be Clinton administration’s cabinet. However, all of that was derailed when President Trump took the victory and Hillary was left with nothing but two failed campaigns and a big mess to clean up.

Cleaning up that mess would have been a lot easier if she had actually won and been in charge of the White House, but since she isn’t, she’s apparently making due. The long list of criminal activity that many suspect the Clintons to have been involved in is only as good as the proof that can be brought, and those who hold that proof just keep waking up dead. Case in point, Houston Lawyer Steve Mostyn who just days ago lost his life to sudden onset mental illness.

Your News Wire  reports that Mostyn was found dead barely before indictments were to come down:

“Top Hillary Clinton donor and Democratic Party operative Steve Mostyn was found dead on Wednesday, just days before the sealed indictments are expected to be handed out. He was 46.

His wife, Amber Mostyn, who also served as an aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton, told The Texas Tribune that her husband died after ‘a sudden onset and battle with a mental health issue.’

A prominent lawyer and dirty tricks political operative, Steve Mostyn was one of Hillary Clinton’s top campaign donors, raising over $1 million and working closely with the Clinton team in Texas.”

It was common knowledge that the Clinton foundation had some pretty shady business partners, but since everyone was so sure that Hillary was going to win, the ends were just going to have to justify the means. That didn’t end up being the case though, and now all their eggs being in that one basket is making for a pretty scary looking future if you’re a member of the DNC.

However, the democratic party is nothing if not great at covering their tracks. Mostyn might have joined the ranks of Seth Rich and others who were brazen enough to defy Hillary, but he’s not the only liability left in the wind.

“The sudden and unexpected death of the elite Democratic operative has sparked fears the Clinton camp is “cleaning house” before the indictments are unsealed and legal cases begin. There are 10 sealed indictments in Houston. Let’s see if it now drops to nine.

The news of Steve Mostyn’s sudden death comes after William D. Campbell, a Russian insider who was due to testify to a Senate committee on Monday that Hillary Clinton accepted bribes in the uranium scandal, went into hiding, telling close friends that he survived an attempt on his life.”

World Net Daily initially reported the details of Mostyn’s untimely death”

A wealthy Democratic mega-donor who co-founded the Ready for Hillary PAC, which helped launch Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign for the White House, has died of a gunshot wound to the head after “a sudden onset and battle with a mental health issue,” his family says.

Steve Mostyn, a 46-year-old Texas trial lawyer who reportedly contributed millions to pro-Clinton super PACs, was found dead in his Houston home on Nov. 15.

Mostyn’s death was ruled a suicide by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences. According to the New York Times, Mostyn’s wife, Amber, said her husband died after a “sudden onset and battle with a mental health issue.”

The Mostyns were major Democratic donors, giving $5.2 million to PACs supporting then-President Obama and Democrats in Congress in 2012. They contributed nearly $10 million to state races in Texas in 2014. During the 2016 election, they also gifted nearly $3.5 million to candidates for federal offices.

In 2016, Mostyn, founder of Mostyn Law in Houston, which focused on hurricane and hailstorm lawsuits, also contributed two separate donations of $1 million each to the pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC Priorities USA Action, the Times reported. Clinton allies ran Priorities USA Action and spent more than $126 million on political ads attacking then-GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Clinton campaign top lawyer Marc Elias, who is chairman of Perkins Coie’s Political Law practice, is now on the board of Priorities USA Action. Elias reportedly hired private research firm Fusion GPS to investigate Trump. Fusion GPS compiled the so-called Trump dossier.

In 2015, the government watchdog Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, or FACT, urged the Federal Election Commission to investigate possibly illegal coordination between the Clinton campaign and Mostyn’s Ready for Hillary PAC. According to a report by the Daily Caller, FACT asked the commission to determine whether the campaign illegally accessed an email list of 4 million names from the super PAC.

“FACT asserts that the list swap should be considered an in-kind donation – which would constitute illegal coordination between the campaign and PAC,” the Daily Caller reported at the time.
