Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C.

6:04 PM - Is Poultry Flu Scare a Hoax for Profit?

Yes, the flu may be real but is it grossly exagerated? This is just too convenient coming on the heels of the great ground beef price hike. If nothing else it's a case of extreme overreaction. They have killed many millions of chickens needlessly. In the southeast where poultry is big business there are currently NO cases of the disease reported. NONE! Yet poultry and egg prices have gone through the roof. And once this nonsense blows over they won't likely be coming down. Everything is manipulated these days for profit or political gain.

North Carolina to suspend sales of live poultry for five months amidst bird flu outbreak


The country's fourth largest producer of chickens for meat and the third largest producer of turkeys is responding to the ongoing bird flu scare by shutting down all shows and sales of live poultry beginning in mid-August. North Carolina State Veterinarian Doug Meckes says the move is necessary to thwart a potential outbreak of bird flu in the Southern U.S., where no cases of the disease have been reported yet.

With a rising death toll of some 50 million birds nationally -- only a tiny fraction of which actually had bird flu; the rest were slaughtered out of "precaution" -- the ongoing bird flu crisis is having a significant impact on the U.S. poultry industry. If media rhetoric continues as it has, many more birds are likely to be put down before health authorities abandon their reactionary approach and start considering a more rational plan of action that doesn't involve destroying the entire poultry industry.

A commenter on one news site who claims to have previously owned the largest rare breed hatchery in the South says "bird flu" is a migratory waterfowl disease that's "been around since the beginning of time." He writes that chickens rarely catch it and that it only occurs when they consume blood or body tissue that has been infected with it, which is extremely uncommon.
