President Donald Trump signed a landmark bill Monday that criminalizes animal abuse and the creation and distribution of pictures and videos of animal torture, proclaiming “We have a responsibility to honor the dignity of God’s creation.”

Starting today, those who commit acts of cruelty against animals will face severe federal penalties.

It is important that we combat these heinous and sadistic acts of cruelty, which are totally unacceptable in a civilized society,” Trump said as he signed H.R. 724, or the Protect Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT).

The new bill has received wide acclaim from animal rights activists and CEO of K9s for Warriors, Rory Diamond, was effusive in his praise of the president.

In one stroke of the pen, the President has done more to protect animals and stop animal cruelty in America than anyone in history,” Rory Diamond said after the bill was signed.

The president was joined by a number of animal non-profit activist representatives from the Humane Society, Animal Wellness Action, Big Dog Ranch Rescue, the National Animal Care and Control Association, and the Warrior Dog Foundation.

“From battlefields to hospitals, from the ranches of the frontier to the backyards of America, from animals of service to animals of war, our nation’s animals have played a vital role in the development, settlement, security, and happiness of our country,” Trump said.

The new law makes it a federal crime to engage in the crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating and impaling of live animals, allowing federal law enforcement to prosecute perpetrators within federal jurisdiction, according to the Humane Society.

We have a responsibility to honor the dignity of God’s creation,” Trump said. “With today’s act, we take the critical step toward being more responsible and humane stewards of our planet and all who we want to cherish and take care of, and all of those who live on it.

The bill passed unanimously in Congress.

The president held the bill signing ceremony the same day as he welcomed Conan to the White House, the hero canine unit from American special forces.

  1. So now Trump is going full on liberal? Worrying about animals BEFORE we worry about ourselves? If we want a proper example how to treat animals, we need to fix how we try ourselves and others FIRST.

    I don’t condone absolutely any abuse or maltreatment of animals. But go to the slums. Go to the rust belt. Go to poor areas. Learn how nearly half of all Americans have to live in order to survive because the minimum wage is way too low for all corporate jobs which can instantly pay double or triple pay. There are no federal benefits (breaks, paid sick/vacation, personal, leave) because unions previously provided them all, etc. Housing costs are gentrified so any deseriable area only allows those with an upper-middle class salary to affoard it, and on the outskirts of such areas are where prices might even let up, with almost all the ammentities and charm already removed and a catch left to be found. There is no right to enough food to survive and no right to a house or healthcare. There is no right to higher, extended (e.g. trade school), or alternative (e.g. charter school) education for any student with obvious gifts or talents. It is absolutely NOT normal to force a person with other people from his town or zone with no consideration of the obvious, due dilligent benefits of pooling all the groups of people in the local area together based on their similar talents and abilities, which instantly creates realtionships, friendships and connections.

    If we treat, and allow ourselves to be treated the way we do, how are we supposed to relate to animals? And if we do gaurentee them anything we don’t have, such as shelter, food, or care, then why do we think they are so much superior to us? Or not even equal or equitable?

    • Good points! Treating animals right is important, but it seems trivial when you consider most mothers put their own children to death

  2. I hope this order can be extended to cover what petrochemical companies and herbicide manufacturers are doing to the global pollinators. We will soon see a total collapse of bee colonies, butterflies, and other beneficial insects if we don’t address this disaster, like yesterday. Food and fruit yields are already in decline.

  3. No need for hysteria… This is just posturing to authenticate the “end of life” is in accordance to noahide law; otherwise there would’t be so many smiling faces of the chosen few surrounding him. Remember “We the People” are human resources and like a good farm animal we will be taken care of by the ultimate wisdom of “The Architect “

    My advice; Take the Blue Pill and go back to sleep.

    • My advice; Take the Blue Pill and go back to sleep.

      Most days I wish I did. I took the ‘red pill’ at a young age and that’s when the joy in life ended. All’s I do is keep finding out how deep the rabbit hole goes whether I intend to or not. And in the end, it won’t matter anyways.

      • Find Jesus and it certainly will matter for you. All that’s occurring was written in the bible thousands of years ago, if you break the commandments, your enemies will rule you, and thats exactly whats going on (our countries abort millions of babies annually is one extreme example of our rebellion). When you find the shield of the messiah you will persevere with no fear in this life and live in a better place after. A thousand will fall at your left side, and 10,000 at your right, but you will not fall! I only fear god (Yahuah) and his only begotten son Jesus (Yahshua), every house on my block could blow up, but mine will still stand

    • “The architect” are you a freemason or something? Thats what they call Lucifer in the occult……masonry……architect……deceit

      • Funny, this is from the Matrix movie but you are correct in connecting this to freemasons. Occult means hidden, not evil. Near the End of the Age, all things will be be revealed and other things will be made known. As in the days of Noah, many will be swept away; his people will starve from a lack of knowledge. Take the Red pill and awake, take the Blue pill and go back to sleep.

  4. I wonder if the satanists will quit the animal sacrifices as well? I think this rule only applies to us sheep, Trump and his Jesuit friends certainly will continue their sacrifices
