Note To My Critics:

The links to the many sites that I've included contain information that I believe to be relevant, be it the graphics, the videos, the undercover investigations, etc. . Exposing & and ending the brutality and savagery inflicted on the non-human animals is what I am focused on. I strongly believe that every voice against animal abuse/exploitation is of value and -and- collectively we have the power to end it. I am here for the animals, not for anyone's approval and for that I make no apologies. ** I do not promote violence towards humans. ___________________________________________________ Bookmark and Share

Which side are you on Animals or Tabaco/Meat/Drug Industry?

Reposted with thanks to:We are all connected

look who's going  against PETA, The Center for Consumer Freedom!!

Center for Consumer Freedom? ( EYE OPENING FACTS )

CCF frequently criticizes the officials and actions of the Humane Society of the United States, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, the Center for Science in the Public Interest, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Oceana, and other public interest organizations


Can we believe what CCF says when they are funded by big donations from
approximately 100 corporate supporters?

****The CCF is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) U.S. nonprofit organization.[8] As such, it does not disclose the identity of its funders. However, some information is available from statements the CCF and its funders have made and filed, and on yearly IRS Form 990 filings. IRS records show that in 2002, the CCF paid over $1 million to Berman and Company for "research, communications, and other services."[25]

Initial funding for the original Guest Choice Network organization came from Philip Morris, with the initial donation of $600,000 followed by a $300,000 donation the following year. Philip Morris attorney Marty Barrington wrote in a 1996 internal company memorandum: "As of this writing, PM USA is still the only contributor, though Berman continues to promise others any day now." [26] By December, 1996, supporters included Alliance Gaming (slot machines), Anheuser-Busch (beer), Bruss Company (steaks and chops), Cargill Processed Meat Products, Davidoff (cigars), Harrah's (casinos), Overhill Farms (frozen foods), Philip Morris, and Standard Meat Company (steaks). The group's advisory panel comprised representatives from most of these companies, plus further representatives from the restaurant industry, including former Senator George McGovern, and Carl Vogt of law firm Fulbright & Jaworski.[27]

In subsequent years, the GCN acquired more donors, but was still largely funded by large corporations. The IRS Form 990 for the six-month period from July to December 1999 shows income for that period was $111,642, of which $105,000 came from six unnamed donors. Form 990s for the Center for Consumer Freedom are available for years 2002-2004 on the GuideStar website.[28][29][30] For the last available year, 2004, revenues were $3.6 million, while expenses reached $3.25 million.

Acknowledged corporate donors to the CCF include Coca-Cola, Wendy's, Tyson Foods, and Pilgrim's Pride.[2][31][32] As of 2005, the CCF reported more than 1,000 individual donors[8][2] as well as approximately 100 corporate supporters.[3

The CCF's directors are Richard Berman, Jacob Dweck, David Browne and Lane Cardwell, all under the management of Berman and Company, which received fees of $1,190,512 in 2006.[33] Other Berman and Company employees are affiliated with the CCF, including David Martosko, who serves as the CCF's director of research,[34] and Justin Wilson, a CCF senior research analyst who makes occasional appearances on various news channels including CNBC.

This is what the CCF has to say about PETA:
