Obama Regulators Want To Let Factory Farms Label Their Meat ‘Humanely Raised’

Are we in the 21 st century?

The proposed guidelines were recently posted by the Food Safety and Inspection Service, the federal agency that regulates how meat and poultry products must be labeled.

The new rules would permit meat producers to use terms like “Raised With Care” or “Humanely Raised on Sustainable Family Farms” simply by making up their own definitions for the terms. Each company’s definition of “humanely raised” would be entirely arbitrary, and regulators would perform no inspections to verify any of their animal-welfare claims.

Consumer advocates and animal protection groups said the proposed rules would amount to a federal seal of approval on a deeply flawed labeling system that misleads consumers and undermines farms that actually do provide better care to animals.

fbi-says-foreign-hackers-penetrated

The FBI has uncovered evidence that foreign hackers penetrated two state election databases in recent weeks, prompting the bureau to warn election officials across the country to take new steps to enhance the security of their computer systems, according to federal and state law enforcement officials.

The FBI warning, contained in a “flash” alert from the FBI’s Cyber Division, a copy of which was obtained by Yahoo News, comes amid heightened concerns among U.S. intelligence officials about the possibility of cyberintrusions, potentially by Russian state-sponsored hackers, aimed at disrupting the November elections.

Those concerns prompted Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to convene a conference call with state election officials on Aug. 15, in which he offered his department’s help to make state voting systems more secure, including providing federal cybersecurity experts to scan for vulnerabilities,

8 Things to Do to Trump to help him lose money



This campaign season has made something abundantly clear: Donald Trump is a bigot. That isn’t too surprising, given the fact his father was a member of the Ku Klux Klan who was sued by the Justice Department for refusing to rent to black tenants. And up until now, there’s been no way for the public to check Trump’s bigotry in a way that will make him stop and rethink his words.

No number of bad headlines will stop Trump’s rhetoric, nor will it stop the alarming number of white supremacists coming out of the woodwork to support his campaign and emboldened to commit acts of hatred against the same groups he’s maligning.

The only way to stop Trump is by going after the one thing he values most: His money.

The Donald’s financial disclosure form, submitted after he declared his candidacy, shows him owning dozens of companies across the United States and the world that bear his name, and we’ve done the grunt work of narrowing down the exact businesses responsible for the Trump Organization’s money.

Trump: 'You can get the baby out of here

Ashburn, Virginia (CNN)Donald Trump, trying to reassure a distressed mother with a crying baby, said Tuesday that he loves hearing babies cry at his rallies and told her not to worry -- only to change his mind just a moment later.

"I love babies. I hear that baby cry, I like it," Trump said at a campaign event here as a baby could be heard crying in the audience. "What a baby. What a beautiful baby. Don't worry, don't worry. The mom's running around, like, don't worry about it, you know. It's young and beautiful and healthy and that's what we want.
