An Opportunity to Make the ESA Benefit People

*Editor’s Note* – I have the utmost respect for Jim Beers. His experience and his knowledge, along with a willingness to share makes him a standout in today’s world of programmed automatons. However, it is my belief that there is insanity in thinking that just one more attempt at instituting change can happen if we vote in the “right” people to serve in Washington. The System is far too big, far too powerful, and far too corrupt to think that any person or group of persons can change that. Thinking so is explemplary to the ignorance of the Global Power Structure.

Inserting another “however,” we shouldn’t throw out the baby with the bath water. Beers latest writing contains many accurate and powerful facts that we shouldn’t forget.

Having said this, I cannot offer any solution that will cause real change in our governmental structure, especially the criminal aspects of it. In the years that I have spent in this work, which involves uncountable hours of read-searching, it has become extraordinarily clear that in government absolutely nothing has changed – only the allowed rhetoric to rile and divide the masses. 

As to the history of the Endangered Species Act, all the promises, all the talk, all the hype over the past 20 years and, like all government establishments, nothing has changed. Beers has it right in warning us not to be fooled by false promises – promises for action in exchange for your vote. This has been the history of real criminal politics and there is no hope that it will change or that you and I can actually do anything about it…short of changing ourselves and how we perceive things.

My only suggestion is to do as we have been instructed in the Scriptures to not be a part of man’s government – “Come out of Her my people” (the Whore of Babylon). Our Creator knew and knows the corruption that would rule man’s crafted cesspool of lying, cheating, and stealing. 

Put your faith and belief in God the Almighty instead of man-gods and your perspective will change. Government will not.

By Jim Beers:

As this old wildlife bureaucrat sees the “Deep State” wriggle and squirm like a nightcrawler on the hook of the President I am encouraged that there may be a remedy on the horizon for all the damage and abuse that rural America is absorbing from environmental and animal overreach by federal bureaucracies.  “Endangered” “species” from Wolves and Grizzly Bears to Mountain Yellow-Legged Frogs and Tooth Cave Spiders can be changed from tools forged by bureaucrats to decimate animal husbandry, grazing, hunting, logging and other rural pursuits necessary for rural American communities into animals that decimate such communities for a wide range of nefarious hidden agendas.

The possibility of changing this has come to mind as I have followed the political battle between the Congress, and the FBI and DOJ about if and to what extent the FBI and DOJ meddled in the last Presidential election.  Furthermore, the vitriol spewed by certain members of the last Administration, particularly in the intelligence arena, toward the President and everything he does up to and including calling him a traitor is not only stunning but suggestive of a possible remedy for Endangered Species, Wilderness and other environmental laws that use power-seeking bureaucrats as unanswerable and irresponsible tools of vote-seeking politicians that pass and protect unjust laws they then disavow as being administered by “scientists” and “experts”.

Consider the following examples.

1.) When terrorism first became a major national concern, the law enforcement “experts” made the logical case that new “secret” courts (FISA courts) were necessary to issue “secret” warrants to search and investigate the profusion of cells and individuals suspected of plotting and carrying out terrorist acts. Despite misgivings by many legal historians, Congress passed a law establishing these FISA courts.  So, what happened?

We find that the FBI, DOJ and CIA tapped phones of Congressional staff, conducted secret surveillance of the Trump election campaign, and then lied to Congress and stalled only to dribble heavily redacted documents to Congressional Committees.  When called to appear before these Committees the contempt and disdain displayed toward Congress and the Administration was stunning.  The forecast that FISA would create a Star Chamber form of “justice” wherein proceedings were secret, rulings were arbitrary and tyrannical, and there was little difference between the “Kings” enforcers and the “Kings” judges became a fact. When an investigation is launched against the President, it lasts for years while being made up of lawyers strongly opposed to the President.  The wife of an FBI official is given thousands of dollars to run for an office by the Party opposing the President.  “Lost” emails, a private server containing highly classified information kept in a private residence basement are dismissed as acceptable.

2.) When the federal government sought to “equalize” tax advantages for all political lobbying organizations under President Obama, IRS employee Lois Lerner engaged in serious discrimination against conservative groups while favoring tax exemptions for liberal groups.  When that was exposed by a Congressional Committee, Ms. Lerner took the 5th and her boss, Mr. Koskinen lied to Congress when he said her emails were lost to a computer glitch.  Ms. Lerner skated free and retired: her boss did a double arabesque and pirouetted off stage right into infamy.

3.) Gun control advocates here and in the UN began accusing American gun dealers of supplying Mexican drug lords and foreign revolutionary movements with illegal guns and ammunition early in the Obama Administration.  Soon thereafter, ATF and DOJ began a secret operation they labelled Fast and Furious.  Two thousand automatic weapons, including over 30 .50 caliber rifles, were placed in the purported flow of illegal guns into Mexico to ostensibly discover the identify of traffickers.  The guns promptly disappeared and popped up in such widespread places as Mexican drug-related executions and the personal gun collection of drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, as well as one being the murder weapon of an American Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry.  Simultaneously, the US State Department was negotiating an unmentioned “Small Arms Treaty” at the UN that supposedly would replace the 2nd Amendment when ratified by the US Senate and signed by President Obama.

When Fast and Furious became public, the DOJ refused to give Congress, or anyone else, any information.  The Attorney General was exceptionally arrogant (shades of Strzok, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and McCabe, et al of recent vintage) and was found in Contempt of Congress.  The UN “Treaty” ploy was abandoned and since then guns from this ATF debacle continue popping up in both US and Mexican crime scenes.

4.) When I worked for the US Fish and Wildlife Service in Washington in the 1990’s I saw the same arrogance and hubris emerge in top managers.  They began to feel the power at their fingertips and what it could do for themselves.  Contempt for hunters, ranchers, loggers, shepherds, private property rights, animal ownership, and renewable natural resource management was what the environmental laws had become.  Successful bureaucrats were those that saw themselves as accumulating power and the financial rewards and gravitas it created.  By the mid 1990’s USFWS appointees and top bureaucrats were placing beholden women and minorities in top management positions as endangered species came to the forefront and the entire concept of managing wildlife for people became bureaucrats managing people and their rights for wildlife.

This led to Budget Requests to Congress to introduce wolves into the Upper Rocky Mountains and to open an unnecessary new office in California to seal a close alliance with radical environmental and animal rights’ organizations.  When Congress refused to authorize or fund either;  USFWS simply “diverted” (either “took” or “stole” is more accurate) $45M to $60M from the Excise Taxes that by law could only go to state wildlife agencies and then surreptitiously captured and imported Canadian wolves, released them into the Upper Rockies, opened the California office, and gave the leftover funds to USFWS managers in bonus packages.

When this theft was documented in a General Accounting Office Audit and presented to the House Resources Committee, the Director was absent at the Hearing she was requested to attend.  When she and her underlings finally testified, the arrogance and contempt for American law and the American electorate was a copy of that noted in 1, 2, and 3 above examples.  Any prosecution or reprimand or accountability for the perps was lost in the approaching Presidential election. Any deterrence for other bureaucrats about ever losing a bonus or retirement for any transgression was not only foregone; the opposite or “we are untouchable” was the message sent to the “Lerners”, “Comeys” and “Holders” of the “Deep State”.

Recommendation

Each of these examples has 2 things in common:

  1. Excessive central government power in the hands of unelected political appointees and bureaucrats.
  2. Legal backing by elected central government politicians to enact and federal laws that implement political agendas disguised as “feel-good” goals such as “saving” species and wilderness, gun control, tax “fairness”, and fighting terrorism.

There is an approaching federal mid-term election coming upon us.  Some forecast the House and Senate ceding the majority to the other Party, while some forecast the opposite.  The majority Party is apparently shedding the bloc of politicians that fight the President and his proposals at every turn and the minority Party is putting forth a radical-socialism, mix based on Venezuela and Cuban governance.  It will be a tumultuous election with no guarantees.  That tumult is what has created an opportunity.

The harms and damage of the Endangered Species Act (and the Wilderness Act, FISA, and similar federal overreaches for “feel-good” purposes) can be greatly, if not entirely reduced by telling your federal politicians running for office and the incumbents that you want to amend the ESA.  Tell them you are concerned about having an environment as hospitable to truly endangered plants and animals AS CAN BE ENCOURAGED IN THE SETTLED LANDSCAPES OF THE LOWER 48 STATES WHERE YOU LIVE, WORK AND RAISE YOUR FAMILIES AND THIS DEPENDS ON LOCAL SUPPORT!

Then tell them “the problem has been and remains that there is no responsibility or accountability for the success or failure of these programs in either federal politicians that support the programs or the federal bureaucrats that administer them”.

Therefore, you want to amend the ESA to require that as of the following fiscal year, all endangered species actions other than listing must have the written concurrence of the Governor of the state in which any action shall be proposed to take place.  Such permission by the Governor should be a signed agreement for each species and include the end-point, funding to be available annually, compensation for likely negative impacts like cattle, sheep and big game losses and human and property losses due to  government actions or lack thereof.  Tell them if they won’t support this, you either won’t vote for them or you will vote for the other guy.  AMEND THE ESA is the sign you should put along the road for the local paper to run.

Do not be fooled by offers to “return management of this or that species to the state”: such “offers” disguise the precedent that what the feds “give” they can later take away under a future political situation.  Don’t be fooled by legislative proposals promising more “transparency” or “participation”: such things are meaningless smoke and mirrors.  Nothing, short of taking primary authority and jurisdiction for all non-treaty wildlife and plants from federal control and placing it back at the lowest (and therefore most responsive to people) level of government will work.  Two hundred years of American life proved no less.

I could go on, but your time is limited.  Suffice it to say that the Governor (include the state legislature if you will) is an official actually close to the impacts of such federal action and he (they in the case of the Legislature) can be recalled or voted out of office when things go south: that is not true with either federal politicians or bureaucrats when sheep are killed by “GI” (Government Issue) grizzlies or elk/moose hunting is destroyed by “GI” wolves.  Governors and state legislatures are more responsible and responsive than any federal politician or bureaucrat in nearly every state.

If you think this too hard to do, just picture Strzok or Comey smirking at the camera, or Holder defending the indefensible, or the discredited Koskinen explaining how the “computer ate my homework”.  Then think about your kids and grandkids in ten or 15 years when a President Elizabeth Warren and Vice President Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are telling Secretary of the Interior Cameron Diaz to let those fires burn over onto private property and get rid of those ranchers, farmers and sheep herders so we can consolidate and expand federal land ownership.  If they still have the authority over these unjust federal laws solely in their hands without any check or balance, it can happen in a New York nanosecond, with or without Congress.

Either we get this under control soon or we can just say goodbye to the American experience.

Deliberate Legal Jury-rigging in Maine’s Right to Hunt Proposal

At the onset of the discovery, one might ask how can any government entity be so damned stupid. But if we could only be honest with ourselves, we might just discover that the stupidity is deliberate, dishonest jury-rigging by some with the knowledge that the ignorant casting the votes don’t know the difference…or not.

I’ve often commented that we live in a “Post-Normal” world – down is up, left is right, black is white, etc. It is nothing new to discover that law proposals contain confusing language. I say confusing as it only applies to the lazy, automatons that don’t take time to read and understand what they are voting for. In many instances, it doesn’t matter anyway. Ballots will be cast according to how the representatives were told (threatened) to vote…or else.

Some in Maine have been trying to pass an amendment to the Maine Constitution sold as a means to guarantee a Maine citizen the right to hunt, trap, and fish. Even though I have said this effort comes years too late, it hasn’t stopped some from trying to get something passed even if it is mostly a worthless amendment. With each passing year, voters become more deeply brainwashed into the Environmentalism’s way of thinking, complete with animal perversion perpetuated by misguided scientism and an immoral, off-track society.

It now appears that the proposed vote on the amendment went to both the Maine House and Senate but was presented with different wording in each case. I.e in one instance a “yes” vote meant no and a “no” vote meant yes.

In a “clarification” sent out by the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, it reads: “The majority report for the House is “ought not to pass”, a yes vote means you are against the constitutional amendment a no vote means the legislator was for the amendment.  Confusing I know. 

*The opposite is true for the Senate.  The motion in the Senate was the minority, ought to pass report.  A yes vote in the Senate is for the constitutional amendment.”

Deliberately confusing I would say.

Perhaps there is lots of stupidity to go around to the fact that someone(s) couldn’t do a better job with how a proposal was worded. And then again, maybe it was intended to be that way.

The truthful question is, who can be trusted anymore? Governments are worthless. Governments are corrupt – at all levels. And you put your faith and trust in them? Shame on you!

You decide whether this “failure” is due to ignorance, stupidity, laziness, ineptitude, corruption or a combination of any and all. One thing is certain, it didn’t have to be handled this way. Would the vote have been different? We may never know.

Shame on the many!!

Maine Gov. LePage Pens Letter to Trump: Tear Down That Monument

In a move that might become a matter of too little too late, Maine Governor Paul LePage sent a letter to President Trump asking him to reverse Barack Obama’s declaration of a National Monument in lands east of Baxter State Park.

An article found in the Bangor Daily News indicates that there is some concern over investments in businesses, etc. that might be in jeopardy if the monument designation is overturned. It’s a bit one-sided to think this should be of concern when those pushing for the park didn’t seem to have much concern over investments others had made before Roxanne Quimby bought up the land and closed it down. Selfish and greedy when one considers that everyone else who has investments don’t matter, but those taking risks in this nationalistic endeavor, which is what business is all about, can’t have their risk on investment interfered with in any way.

I’ll go back to the same point I made a long time ago, that if building a park on Quimby’s land was such a great idea, and if now her money and donations (she claims the project is now worth $100,000,000.00) from others was so easy to get – money said to be able to sustain the park – then why didn’t Ms. Quimby build her own park? It’s her land. Let her do with it as she so sees fit. Instead she has dumped it into the laps of a corrupt and incompetent federal government that notoriously cannot take care of the lands they now hold. In addition, Maine loses the tax dollars this land would generate in private hands. Taxes will never decrease, therefore Maine citizens will have to make up the shortfall.

Although there may be “thousands” who have supported this monument, according to the BDN article, but there are tens of thousands more who don’t. This is classic totalitarian democracy in action. That’s also most commonly referred to as: “Money talks and shit walks.”

Ignorant Radicals Fairy Tale Red Wolf

Those who insist that they want wild dogs in every backyard, are now either ignorantly or deliberately attempting to deflect attention away from the facts about red wolfs, while shifting it to play on the emotions of fellow “True Believers” that a new U.S. Government Administration is going to repeal the Endangered Species Act (ESA) – not that that would be a bad thing.

Yesterday, a website called “The Progressive Pulse” stated that President Trump’s new Interior Secretary, Ryan Zinke, along with Chairman of the House Committee on Natural Resources, Rob Bishop, intend to get rid of the ESA.

It appears the fear of these progressives is that a loss of the ESA would, “doom the red wolf to extinction.” (Or threaten their livelihoods of bilking the taxpayer of millions of dollars) Either these progressives are severely under-informed, misinformed or are intentionally avoiding the fact, in order to continue to play on the emotions of fellow ignorant progressives with that unending, leftist, clap-trap, mostly employed to raise money.

It was during the George H.W. Bush Administration, in 1991 actually, that a UCLA biologist, Robert Wayne, began testing the DNA of red wolves only to discover that, essentially, there was no such thing. We also know from this book, “Wayne’s genetic data proved to be an embarrassment for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service…”

What’s even worse is that we discover how the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) operates when they desire to cover things up and modify factual science to fit their political agendas. “To protect the red wolf, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service began pressuring Wayne to avoid the word ‘hybrid’ in his research papers and to substitute the term ‘intergrade species’ and other similar phrases. By 1994, it was clear, however, that the red wolf was not a species engaging in ‘limited genetic exchange’ with other species.”

However, the crime wasn’t stopped. The fake “recovery effort” of the fake red wolf commenced. These mongrel, semi-wild dogs were dumped in many places, including on private land, which was contrary to the recovery plan and illegal. Again, the criminals and their activities were allowed to fester. Using the strong-arm of the ESA, while illegally protecting a fake wolf, fines and penalties were leveled against North Carolina residents and surrounding communities.

This virus of government corruption has persisted long enough that the act and actions have help in the creation of what I have begun to call, “Red Wolf Automatons.”

Progressivism, it is beginning to be proven, cannot sustain such big chunks of greed and immoral behavior before those with some degree of a moral compass will begin to fight back. Such has been the case in North Carolina.

Some of those involved in the push back have sent me information to keep me up-to-date with what is happening. As a result, readers were made aware that about 3 weeks ago, the U.S. Attorney General’s office sent a letter to then USFWS Director, Dan Ashe, stating that the AG’s office possessed documents that proved that the USFWS knowingly grew, perpetuated and introduced a hybrid (mongrel) dog, illegally placing such fake wolves on private lands, against the ESA and the fake red wolf recovery plan, along with arresting, prosecuting and fining citizens for the USFWS’s actions.

The AG wanted explanations for this act and how it intended to make right with the citizens the wrong they had done.

How much clearer can it become that there is no such animal as a red wolf? How much clearer can it become that this, and other wolf “recovery” actions, are, indeed, illegal and a destruction to the scientific process and the real protection of a species?

Any legitimate organization that has real species concerns and are looking at the protection of the scientific process, while disallowing corrupt politics, would know this information and would not be attempting to further propagandize the emotional mental midgets, playing politics for the purpose of forcing their progressive lifestyles on the rest of society. Instead they choose to present unsubstantiated speculation that the Trump Administration is going to get rid of the ESA, which might drive the red wolf to extinction: a difficult task to extinct a species that does not exist.

One last note: It is my desire that the ESA be completely done away with and replaced with some kind of useful information that actually does as we were told before – to protect species that are needlessly being destroyed. However, this protection can never be at the expense of man’s God-given right to the pursuit of happiness.

USFWS Director Ashe “Hearts” HSUS

*Editor’s Note* – It shouldn’t, but it does, surprise me that this hunting group evidently blindly supports the efforts of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (except when it supports the Humane Society of the United States) and can’t fathom that Director Ashe would be in support of HSUS. Historically, USFWS supports all animal rights and environmental groups. That is why, historically, previous directors of USFWS have left the agency and gone to work for animal rights and environmental groups. It’s a large rigged system in which USFWS sets the stage for environmentalists and animal rights groups to sue the USFWS, affording them the opportunity to rake in huge sums of money. Isn’t it only pay back, after high level employees of government agencies padded the environmentalist’s coffers, to get handed cushy 6-figure jobs with these quasi-governmental agencies in order to keep the gravy train going?

But don’t go look!

“In our opinion, the USFWS director should not be issuing commendations to HSUS, the nation’s most ardent anti-hunting group and a group that has worked relentlessly to limit/end hunting, scientific wildlife management and legitimate and well accepted uses of animals and wildlife. Ashe’s action is disrespectful to the millions of hunters and anglers who have been the most dedicated constituency and financial supporter of the USFWS.”<<<Read More>>>

Monarch butterflies make impressive comeback in Mexico’s Wintering Grounds

*Editor’s Note* – The below excerpt can easily be translated this way: We lied to you before and we our friends made gobs of money. We are lying to you again because we our friends are going to make gobs of money. Oh, and don’t forget that we our friends want to control every facet of your lives.

Monarch butterfly population has bounced back as per the data collected from Mexico. Officials at the US Fish and Wildlife Service announced that a surge has been seen in the population of wintering monarchs in Mexico. The progress is positive for monarch butterflies, but experts believe future of the highly recognizable pollinator is still uncertain.

Trey Gowdy Demands Answers on Benghazi

We can see from this video that Trey Gowdy is asking questions about the whys and wherefores of events in Benghazi that led to the murder of Ambassador Stevens and others. What most don’t know is if he or anybody else could handle the truth of what happened. Does Gowdy already know who planned the event and why, and is he running a smoke screen?

There is one thing certain, none of us will ever know the truth from the Government. I see most of this as a dog and pony show to make sure Americans are told only what the “Insiders” want them to know.

Gowdy is chastising the media for not doing their job. The problem is the media is doing exactly what they have been told to do and what to say. Who controls the media? The Council on Foreign Relations controls the media, as they control the CIA, as they control the U.S. Government. What you are allowed to hear from the Government and Media is only what the CFR wants you to hear.

New Mexico says no to wolves, creating quandary for federal officials

*Editor’s Note* – The author of this article states that the Feds “can go over the state’s head” but questions whether or not the Feds will do that. The answer is simple: Of course they will. They have a history of breaking laws and doing just as they damned please anyway. So, why act as though you don’t know?

When one considers all the corruption that has existed from the very beginning, from dishonestly crafting environmental impact statements to conform with the desired narrative of forcing wolf introduction, to illegally releasing cross-bred, mongrel, semi-wild dogs on private land in North Carolina, why would anyone suspect they don’t know what the Feds will do?

In North Carolina, state authorities demanded the Feds remove fake red wolves they planted on private land and still they refuse, even though the Fed’s actions are clearly illegal.

Not unlike North Carolina, the fake “Mexican” wolves of the Desert Southwest are almost as mongrel. And these clowns say it is necessary for genetic diversity. BS

The Feds have always hidden behind the claim that the Endangered Species Act (ESA) requires them to “recover” wolves. Odd, as well as corrupt, that the Feds wish to adhere closely to the ESA laws – actually, their own interpretation of them, and yet thumb their fascist noses at those calling them out when they have deliberately broken the other laws from the same ESA.

No, there shouldn’t be any questions about what the Feds are going to do in New Mexico or anywhere else they decide to force people to live with wolves. If it destroys the American Heritage, including the freedom to pursue life, liberty and happiness, these fascists have and will continue to carry on with business as usual.

We have created it, now we must live with it.

WHILE WE SNORE!

State officials have said they are unwilling to approve new releases until FWS updates its recovery plan for the wolf, which was written in 1982. Concerned about impacts to ranchers and elk hunters, they’ve pressed FWS for the total number of wolves it aims to restore to the landscape in the long-term. But the agency doesn’t have that number yet, and though it is updating the recovery plan, the process is likely to take at least 2 years.

Now, the federal agency must decide whether to release the wolves against the state’s wishes. Federal policy requires FWS to consult state agencies and comply with their permitting processes when releasing endangered animals from captivity, even when releases are made on federal land. But there’s one exception: If a state agency prevents the service from fulfilling its statutory responsibilities, the feds can go over the state’s head.

Leaked Information Leads to Death Threats by Wolf Perverts

An email from Jet Ferebee:

Director Ashe,

You should be ashamed.

Last year a private landowner with several small children was inundated with your wolves and asked to have the wolves removed.

He did not however trust USFWS on his land due to his prior experiences with USFWS personnel in the area. This gentleman asked if he could hire an outside trapper to trap your wolves. He was told yes and the trapping costs would be reimbursed.

This activity proved futile as when the wolves were trapped and returned to USFWS, USFWS simply turned the wolves back loose on the adjoining farm (the same tactics used on me). The wolves obviously returned. To rub salt in the wound, USFWS has been unable to reimburse him for his trapping costs as promised.

With USFWS creating a revolving door to this farm for the wolves and non-reimbursed trapping expenses becoming cost prohibitive, he resorted to securing a take permit.

This farmer recently reluctantly exercised his take permit. I know this man personally and he took no pleasure in his removal actions, but they were necessary. The wolves had continued to encroach upon the area where his children played.

USFWS personnel, maybe even you, intentionally leaked the take information to the Animal Welfare Institute and likely the Defenders of Wildlife and Red Wolf Coalition who then released a worldwide press release. The internet and social media are now littered with death threats from across the world for this man.

The actions of USFWS are a violation of the Privacy Act and have now placed this NC man and his family in eminent danger.

You and USFWS should be ashamed.

This serves as a formal FOIA request for all USFWS correspondence related to this take permit. This includes all correspondence. Your staff, your assistants and your correspondence are included as well as all personal cell phone texts and emails.

This bogus program, built on lies and deceit, is doomed for failure in our State specifically because of repeated actions coordinated between USFWS and wolf activist groups.

Special Agent Hast,

I am formally asking that this violation of the Privacy Act by USFWS that has placed a man and his family in jeopardy be added to your current investigation of the USFWS agency.

Leaders and Representatives,

It is time for this program to be permanently removed from our State. The wolf program has had their chance to operate this program within the law and repeatedly fails. USFWS is so inundated with activists that they can no longer be a trusted partner for the benefit of wildlife in our State. I am asking for your help.

Sincerely,

Jett Ferebee
