*The Humane Society of Missouri Animal Cruelty Task Force & the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, rescued 40 dogs, four birds and one rabbit from a property near Truxton, Missouri.  There are 9 Chocolate Lab puppies, 8 week old mixed-breed puppies and at least 3 senior dogs. The remaining 23 adult dogs are  various breeds like dachshunds, pugs, Cavalier King Charles, & more.  All animals were without food or water and several have wounds from possible dog fighting. 

The Humane Society of Missouri animal cruelty investigators and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office have been working with the animals’ owner for several years to encourage proper care for the animals. When no progress was made, the sheriff’s office obtained a warrant for the inspection of the property and removal of animals in jeopardy. The investigation is ongoing to determine if criminal charges are warranted. A disposition to determine permanent custody of the animals will be held at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018, at the Lincoln County Justice Center in Troy, Missouri. The Humane Society of Missouri is also pursuing information indicating the owner has been or is currently a dog groomer.

The dogs will be transported to the Humane Society of Missouri’s Macklind Ave. headquarters in St. Louis for treatment and care. Donations to provide for the animals’ care may be made at or by calling 314-951-1542.

NJ Mom Prevents School Shooting In Kentucky - 

A New Jersey mom who was targeted online for having biracial children, took the threat seriously and saved lots of lives.

Last week, Koeberle Bull got a Facebook message from Dylan Jarrell, whom she doesn’t know, full of racist and crude comments about she and her three biracial children. Bull is from Lumberton, New Jersey and Jarrell is from Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. She has no idea how he found her and decided to take action.

The Lawrenceburg police were called and police caught up with the 20-year-old man as he was pulling out of his driveway. It was perfect timing. He was armed with a gun, ammunition, and a kevlar vest. His destination was apparently Anderson County High School.

Kentucky authorities said that tragedy was avoided thanks to a call “from a female in New Jersey.” Jarrell is now behind bars and Bull is getting messages of thanks from many Kentucky residents.

New Cold War Heats Up As John Bolton Visits Russia - 

Russian violations of a nuclear missile treaty run "long and deep."

So said National Security Adviser John Bolton in Moscow yesterday, after shaking Vladimir Putin’s hand. President Trump has threatened to remove the U.S. from the longstanding nuclear treaty with Moscow. Bolton said a formal notice of withdrawal will be filed "in due course."

At the meeting, Putin questioned Bolton. “On the U.S. seal there is an eagle holding arrows in one hand and an olive branch in another,” Putin said. “So, a question: has the eagle eaten all the olives and left only arrows?”

After meeting with President Putin, Bolton noted that Russia is denying allegations of violations. The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, or INF, was signed by the U.S. and the old Soviet Union in 1987.
