Next Up For H(I)S(I)US: Ban Mountain Lion Hunting

*Editor’s Note* – It seems that with these extremists, like H(I)S(I)US, that the only qualifier in killing any animal is when a person’s live is threatened. HSUS makes me feel like my life is being threatened. So, now what?

In November 2018, the world’s wealthiest animal-rights organization intends to ask Arizona voters to ban mountain lion, bobcat and other big-cat hunting. Operating under the name ‘Arizonans for Wildlife,’ the campaign is really being spearheaded by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). The group filed language on September 25 with the Arizona Secretary of State’s office to allow the signature-gathering process to begin in an effort to qualify the issue for the 2018 ballot. If the language is approved, the HSUS-led group would have to gather 150,642 valid voter signatures by July 5, 2018 to qualify for the election on November 6, 2018.

The language filed by the anti-hunting group would remove mountain lions and bobcats from the state’s list of huntable species. Under the proposed language, mountain lions and bobcats, along with jaguars, ocelots and lynx, would be called “wild cats,” and be prohibited from hunting or trapping.<<<Read More>>>

“Religious” Tolerance? Nah, Normalizing Lunacy

Recently the Maine Legislature passed a bill that would permit a small cult that calls themselves Quakers to NOT wear the blaze orange that hunters have worn for years that has proven to save lives. According to the Quaker cult, their “religion” disallows them to wear “bright clothing.”  Therefore the Legislature, in their infinite wisdom, and God knows they are amply endowed, passed a bill that exempts them from wearing the orange in exchange for wearing “bright” red. This, of course, is insanity at its finest, but then again aren’t we now living in a post normal society where we have normalized lunacy? The reality is nobody recognizes the lunacy….because it is all “normal.”

Here’s further proof. A man in Arizona has been allowed to have his drivers license photo taken of him wearing a metal colander on his head. “This subjugated monotheistic religious minority believe a giant, omniscient spaghetti monster that lives in the sky created the universe and has complete control of its fate.”

Perhaps out of “respect” for these lunatics – and I’m also referring to the lunatics who pass bills and allow such nonsense – this “free” country should mandate that at least one day out of the year everyone wear “bright” red and a metal colander on their head.

I have two words for all of them…..but I won’t print it.

FAKE: Wildlife, Border Wall, Sensibility and Idealism All Rolled Into One

On the one side, idiots believe a giant wall stretching the length of the U.S. and Mexico border will solve all the immigrant problems, including terrorism, and “make America great again.” On another side you got useless eaters claiming that maintaining space for animals to freely roam between the U.S. and Mexico is more important than the beliefs of wall-builders.

And then there’s this guy. One who thinks it’s very important to put up a wall – actually only a fragmented wall – and, very important to leave corridors for the animals that would be off limits to the illegal immigrants. This he calls a compromise.

Of course if the entire issue was really about border security, or illegal immigration/open borders, then we secure the border.

The author of the linked-to piece, offers hints as to what might actually be behind this effort to stop the building of the wall, but fails in his attempts to fix a fake problem by ignoring those whom he says might be behind the problem. That makes little sense. If there is an actual security problem at the U.S. and Mexico border that requires spending billions of dollars to construct a wall to keep them out (if any wall will actually do that – think tunnels, etc.), then certainly the wall goes up and the animals will somehow (sob, cry, wail, gnash) have to figure out how to survive.

If it’s only half important to waste money on a partial wall, then why spend the money and have any wall at all.

American’s, misled as they are, really have their heads screwed on cross threaded.

INSANITY: Contrasting Principles of Wolf Management

Check out this statement from the Idaho Statesman: “They’re asking a federal judge to force the agency to prepare an environmental impact statement, a lengthy process, and issue a temporary restraining order preventing the agency from killing wolves in Idaho until the updated analysis complying with federal environmental law is complete.”

Odd and ironic, that in Arizona and New Mexico, state agencies there are trying to force the Federal Government to devise an up-to-date environmental impact plan for increased introduction of Mexican wolves, where the environmentalists are protesting the move by the states to do this. And yet, here in Idaho, the environmentalists are demanding the same creation of a new environmental impact plan from the Federal Government, so wolves can’t be killed.

You can’t make this stuff up! It’s always a baffling of the mind when dealing with insanity.

Line Up For Your Own Money to Compensate for Wolf Losses Along with Destruction of Food Sources

*Editor’s Note* – People cannot and will not see the evil that is behind this action. Non thinkers, programmed by government, for government, will ignorantly think I have something against ranchers being compensated for livestock losses due to wolves. I don’t and readers who have followed me realize I will support what rights a property owner has over even game and wildlife management.

The totalitarian effort of a fascist government on display here, tricks ranchers and others into thinking everyone is “justly” compensated for destruction by Government Issued wolves (more precisely known as mongrel mutts). It’s a giant Ponzi Scheme.

There’s a bigger picture that few can see and/or will refuse to consider. While it is important to compensate the rancher for losses, the act and reaction plays into the hands of those wishing the destruction of this country, control over the masses and most importantly the reduction of the population. A contributor to this website says that Environmentalism (wolf introduction and protection) is nothing more than planned genocide. Evidently people want to kill themselves.

The government is famous for giving away “grant” money. Somehow idiots think grant money is like Obamaphones – free. Grant money is nothing more than illegal tax money stolen from the people and then returned to grantees as payoffs and presented to the people as the benefits from socialism – bribes and extortion really.

But what is never discussed in any of these conversations is the real end result – loss of food production, forcing prices through the roof and with continued animal perversion (Jim Beers describes it as the marriage of Romance Biology and Environmental Voodoo) soon there will be no food and the people will be driven off their land in order to protect more animals. SICK! Control the food and you control the people – BUT DON’T GO LOOK! TRUTH IS SCARY!

The bottom line here is that so long as we are dumb enough to continue to allow Government and their partners in crime (NGO’s wink – wink) to buy us off, with our own money, and think that is justice, our future is short.

Government steals our money, steal our property, steal more money in order to provide “compensation” while food supplies disappear. No matter how you might want to white-wash it, it is genocide.

This is INSANE!

Press Release from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service:

Mexican Wolf/Livestock “Pay for Presence” Payment Application Dates

ALBUQUERQUE – Livestock producers may now submit applications to the Mexican Wolf/Livestock Council to receive payments for wolf presence under the Mexican Wolf/Livestock Plan. The deadline for application submissions is June 1, 2016.

The plan was developed two years ago by the Council in order to address wolf-livestock conflicts, which is one of the most significant impediments to Mexican wolf recovery. The plan is comprised of three core strategies: payments for wolf presence, funding for conflict avoidance measures, and funding for depredation compensation.

“The Mexican Wolf/ Livestock Council’s payments for wolf presence program recognizes the indirect costs to livestock producers from Mexican wolves, including stress-related weight loss in livestock and other management costs,” said Benjamin Tuggle, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s Southwest Regional Director. “While we recognize that the program is not fully funded yet, we and the Council are continuing to seek funding to fully implement this valuable program.”

Payments to livestock producers for wolf presence are based on a formula that considers a variety of factors, including whether the applicant’s land or grazing lease overlaps a wolf territory or core area (e.g., den or rendezvous area) and the number of wolf pups from that pack surviving to December 31, recognizing that survival of wolf pups is not dependent upon the livestock producer. The formula also considers the number of livestock exposed to wolves and the applicant’s participation in proactive conflict avoidance measures.

“We’re encouraged by how many livestock producers have participated in this program over the past two years,” said Livestock Council Chairman Sisto Hernandez. “The driving force behind this program was to develop something that would recognize the increase in expenditures the ranchers experience with the recovery of the Mexican Wolves. Our continuing goal is to search out additional avenues that will increase our capacity to provide assistance to those who need it the most.” U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service News Release Public Affairs Office PO Box 1306 Albuquerque, NM 87103 505/248-6911 505/248-6915 (Fax)

The Payments for Wolf Presence program creates incentives for ranching in ways that promote selfsustaining Mexican wolf populations, viable ranching operations, and healthy western landscapes.

Seed funding for the Coexistence Plan comes from the Federal Livestock Demonstration Program, which in 2015 provided $40,000 for depredation compensation and $60,000 for preventative measures to Arizona Game and Fish Department, and $60,000 for depredation compensation and $34,000 for preventative measures to the New Mexico Department of Agriculture. These grant funds are matched by in-kind contributions through the Mexican Wolf Fund and Defenders of Wildlife providing financial assistance to livestock producers to implement proactive measures to reduce conflicts between Mexican wolves and livestock.

“Opposition to Mexican wolf reintroduction is largely based on a lack of reasonable compensation for livestock producers that lose thousands of dollars per animal depredated by wolves. Compensation under the Plan will help build tolerance for the wolf on a working landscape, a factor that is essential for successful Mexican wolf recovery.” said Jim deVos, Assistant Director for Wildlife Management for the Arizona Game and Fish Department.

The Mexican Wolf/Livestock Council continues to seek additional private and public funding, in anticipation of increased rancher participation and potential wolf range expansions.

Az Sen Flake Proposes Amendment to Energy Act to Delist MGW

I have received information from Veritas Research Consulting, that Arizona Sen. Flake has introduced Amendment #3164, as part of the Senate Energy Act (S.2012) to remove from the Endangered Species Act List Mexican gray wolves (MGW) from federal protection and placing management within the appropriate states where MGWs live.

The amendment – found at this link – calls for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to verify that at least 100 MGWs exist within a 5,000 square mile region, and to remove federal protection as per the Wolf Recovery Plan of 1982, which declares MGWs recovered at that threshold.

Missing from this amendment is any wording that would exempt court interference, now and in the future.

It appears the amendment is basically worthless, in my not-so-humble opinion.

2 shot during Old West gunfight re-enactment in Tombstone, Ariz.

*Editor’s Comment* – Consider the possibilities here. Invite political icons as “special” guests. Ain’t America great!

The shooting happened Sunday as performers from the Tombstone Vigilantes group were portraying a gunfight in the 19th century mining town made famous by Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and the O.K. Corral.

A performer’s gun fired live rounds, hitting a fellow member of the acting group, the Tombstone Marshal’s Office said. Ken Curtis fell to the ground and was flown to a Tucson hospital, where he underwent surgery to remove the bullet.

“Respected Access in Arizona” event set for Nov. 7, 2015

Press Release from the Arizona Game and Fish Department:

Fundraiser includes fun-shoot, barbecue dinner, auctions, raffles

 

PHOENIX – The Arizona Game and Fish Department and Tread Lightly! will host a special event Nov. 7 to help raise awareness of the importance of protecting access and enhancing outdoor recreational opportunities, such as recreational shooting, off-highway vehicle (OHV) use, and camping.

A fun-shoot, barbecue dinner, raffles, and live and silent auctions are planned at the Arizona State Credit Union Pavilion, located at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix. Proceeds will be used to help fund the long-term implementation strategies of the “Respected Access is Open Access in Arizona” campaign. Tickets are available online at www.tinyurl.com/respectedaccess

The cost of the fun-shoot (which includes targets and two boxes of ammunition) and dinner, catered by Bobby Q restaurant, is $75 before Oct. 15, then $100 after Oct. 15. The cost of only the dinner, which includes beverages and a door-prize raffle ticket, is $50 before Oct. 15, then $60 after Oct. 15.

The department and Tread Lightly!, a national organization that promotes responsible recreation through stewardship, communication and education, along with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and U.S. Forest Service, are helping to keep Arizona’s public lands healthy and open through the successful “Respected Access is Open Access in Arizona” campaign.

The objective is to implement education, outreach and engagement strategies that promote stewardship and foster site-stewards through volunteerism. It can’t be done alone, however. That’s why the support of outdoor recreationists, and industries that serve them, is important.
