Leticia James Sues Meatpacking Company Over Climate Change

Rogue New York Democratic Attorney General Letitia James now has her sights set on a Brazilian meatpacking company. Fresh off her persecution of former President Donald Trump, the prosecutor claimed the firm made false statements concerning its climate goals.

Citing what must be a fresh leftist term — “greenwashing” — the AG accused the U.S. division of Brazilian company JBS of systematic wrongdoing.

James said the company lied concerning its goal of being carbon neutral by 2040. Her press release refuted this statement, saying that result was impossible because of its work in beef production.

To be clear, the food producer is in trouble for establishing a goal to be carbon neutral.

The Democrat declared, “JBS USA’s greenwashing exploits the pocketbooks of everyday Americans and the promise of a healthy planet for future generations.”

She said her office seeks to prohibit the business from carrying out “false and misleading marketing practices.” She further stated that JBS should “pay disgorgement of all ill-gotten profits” at a minimum cost of $5,000 per violation.

This, of course, is the same Democratic prosecutor who wanted to banish Trump from New York City’s business community and force him to pay hundreds of millions in penalties. She found the right judge to make this happen, and the former president is now appealing the ruling.

The 2024 Republican presidential frontrunner was slapped with a $354 million fine plus interest and barred from being an officer or director of a New York-based business for three years.

James followed the extremist script further and went after the National Rifle Association. She attempted to have the venerable gun rights organization dissolved, and the case ended last week when a jury found former NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre liable for $5.4 million in damages.

Weaponization of the government against conservatives is hardly a myth.

But, like Trump, JBS is not backing down from James’ persecution. A company spokesperson said it is committed to “a more sustainable future” and disagrees with the statement by James.

It pledged to continue to collaborate with farmers and its partners across the globe to feed the world’s expanding population.

JBS further expressed its belief that U.S. agriculture “can help sustainably feed the world.”
