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

Wolf Plans Be Damned

The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission (OFWC) seems to have taken a page from the liar’s book of wolf management deception used by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The USFWS promised taxpayers that when wolves in the Northern Rocky Mountains Distinct Population Segment reached a total of 300 wolves, the animal would be removed from Federal protection. Years later and many hundreds more wolves than promised, the USFWS BEGAN the process to “delist” the wolf. And then the environmentalists went to work filing lawsuits to pad their bank accounts.

It seems Oregon promised taxpayers that when wolves numbered four breeding pairs for 3 consecutive years, wolves there would be removed from protection. That goal was reached in 2012 when six breeding pairs were confirmed, 2013 when 4 breeding pairs were confirmed and in 2014 when 8 breeding pairs existed.

It is now 2015 and the OFWC is considering whether to delist at all, or do it only in prescribed areas of the state.

And these clowns wonder why so many people are hating on wolves and idiotic wildlife management that protects animals over humans and their property.

Somebody Needs to Buy a Clue: NC Red Wolf Government Corruption

From North Carolina Hunt and Fish:

September 2014 Gunshot Wolf “Facts”
Facts that we know:

1) An endangered Red Wolf was confirmed to be shot in September 2014

2) Federal Judge Terrance Boyle issued a Federal Injunction halting all Coyote Hunting in the 5 County area (Tyrrell)

3) The confirmed and admitted Gunshot take occurred in Tyrrell County while Tyrrell County was under the Federal Coyote Injunction

4) No one reported this gunshot Red Wolf within the required 24 hr period for permitted takes 1) Deperdation 2) Threat of life

5) This “Take” could not have been “Incidental” to an otherwise legal activity (Coyote Take) as there was a Federal Injunction in place at time of this confirmed gunshot occurred!

6) If this take occurred due to the perpetrator mistakenly shooting the Endangered Red Wolf while they were Coyote hunting, that activity (Coyote hunting) violated the Federal Judges Injunction which resulted from the suit brought forward by the Red Wolf Coalition and not for “Profits”. This is highly illegal in its own twist of circumstance.

7) USFWS failed to issue a joint press release and even embrace the generous reward posted by Landowners and Hunters which now stands at $52,050.00!

Questions;

Why has USFWS failed to pursue this most intresting case?

Does the USFWS close all Critically Endangered Species criminal cases that are “Confirmed” to have suffered “Gunshot” if it only later (creatively ??) decides the mortality was not caused by gunshot?

Does anyone else in America smell the “Stinch”???

Director Ashe,

The below video and fact sheet was recently posted on a website where I am documenting the absurd USFWS Red Wolf Restoration Scandal. Pay close attention to the entire video as it may contain a clue you need.

Thanks,

Does the CEO of Defenders of Wildlife have a Desk in Your Office?

*Note* The following information comes to me from North Carolina Hunt and Fish.

Director Ashe and Secretary Jewell,

Does the CEO of Defenders of Wildlife have a desk in your office? She probably does not, at least I hope not. But did you know the Executive Director of the Red Wolf Coalition had a desk in your USWFS Office in Columbia, NC?

Yep, you read that correctly. A desk in the USFWS office while the Red Wolf Coalition was suing the NC Wildlife Resources Commissioners individually for supposedly violating the ESA as our Commissioners fought to protect our State’s wildlife and NC private landowner rights. This obviously explains why USFWS refused to appear in court on behalf of our Commissioners.

As it turns out, we all now know who has actually been violating the ESA … USFWS.

Did you know that your USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator held a position on the Red Wolf Coalition Board of Directors? Neither of you sit on the Defenders of Wildlife Board of Directors do you? Of course not, that would certainly be a professional conflict of interest.

Did you know the Red Wolf Coalition was actively paying trappers for wolves and/or coyotes in NC? The purchase of wildlife in our State is illegal and is thus a violation of the Lacey Act. The purchase of endangered species is, as you know, absolutely illegal also. Here are the Red Wolf Coalition tax returns showing these payments with your USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator shown as a Board member.

It is hard to imagine how things can get so corrupted in one little USFWS Field office. Until you realize your USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator decided he could run this multimillion dollar scandal remotely and moved from eastern NC back to his hometown in the western part of our State – near Charlotte, N.C. Yes, that is correct, hence the name “a field office with no adult supervision”.

It is pretty interesting all that I found out one cold February morning in 2014 as I, the private landowner, worked to help save a red wolf that was in danger of dying from hypothermia isn’t it?

Director Ashe, you really should take the time to meet with me. I have so much more to share and will do so one way or the other. I do not mean this maliciously, but I very likely know way more about your “red wolf” program than you do.

Here is a recording of your former “remote” USFWS Red Wolf Coordinator. Listen carefully because he will only be “checking his voice mail on occasion”.

Fascist Government, Wild Mongrel Dogs, Lies, And Using Humans as Guinea Pigs

“Officials with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will decide this fall whether a 27-year program aimed at returning the red wolf to the wild in the isolated swampland of eastern North Carolina will go forward.”

“Now they have letters from more than 500 landowners asking them to remove wolves from their property. It is what they promised they would do when all this began. We intend to hold them to it, even if they don’t want to do it.”

“Wildlife officials assured landowners the wolves would not be likely to stray onto their land. If they did, a call to the recovery center would bring a trained officer, who would trap the animal and take it back to the reserve.”

“If the animal was troublesome, a remote-control “capture collar” equipped with a tranquilizer would be detonated, knocking the canine out.”

“In addition, large parts of the protected land were flooded for waterfowl habitation. That forced the wolves to seek different hunting land.”

“Wildlife officials contend that the wolf population has a minimal impact on private land and that they rely on the cooperation of private landowners for the repopulation effort to succeed.”

“We would not leave them behind,” Miranda said. “Whatever the case, we still have our captive population to populate a new area.”<<<Read More>>>

Anybody Out There?

A guest post by James Beers:

Two hours ago I sent out a short article (Public Employees and Animal Rights) about how the Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) was suing USFWS and the State of Alaska for “using federal wildlife restoration grants to illegally support killing wolves and bears to increase moose and caribou hunting”. What they call “grants” at this point on their website they later refer to as “federal funds” and later yet as “federal wildlife funds” and finally as “money from taxpayers in the other 49 states” are actually none of these.

Evidently in the time it took to mow my lawn and pull a few (native?) weeds in my garden I gained a significant number of new and unhappy readers. The hate mail is surprising and indicates a nerve has been struck.

Boys and girls, sorry but “killing wolves and bears” allows “moose and caribou hunting” to both increase and endure. FYI, those dollars the U of Alaska Prof and other bleeding heart public employees have gotten the “vapors” about are NOT “grants” or “federal funds” or “federal wildlife funds” or certainly not “money from taxpayers in the other 49 states”. Those Funds are EXCISE TAXES ON ARMS AND AMMUNITON AND CERTAIN SPORTING ITEMS USED FOR HUNTING. They are collected by the federal government for the exclusive use of state fish and wildlife programs for WILDLIFE RESTORATION. BY law the funds can only be used by State wildlife agencies and the states receive their share of the annual available funding BASED ON ½ THE SIZE (SQ. MILES) OF THE STATE AND ½ ON THE NUMBER OF HUNTING LICENSES SOLD IN THE STATE. These EXCISE TAXES and this Pittman Robertson Program were instituted in 1937 by hunters to perpetuate and enhance hunting opportunity under honest and professional state wildlife programs.

Curious, those words “Wildlife Restoration”: they replaced the words “Pittman Robertson” and “Wildlife Management” in the early 1990’s when the old P-R Law was retitled by Congress. At that time only a small group of hunting advocates raised any question and they were marginalized by the USFWS bureaucrats AND the State F&W Directors AND the hunting NGO’s. Why, you might be tempted to ask? Because that was the “Dawning of the Wildlife Age of Aquarius” when everyone believed hunting, trapping, and fishing were soon to be banned and “Chickadee Check-offs”, “Birdseed Taxes” and “Outdoor Taxes” (how about that last one Madame Secretary of the Interior and former “outdoor” Co. Exec?). The name change was unopposed by the very same State Directors and hunting NGO’s that lost their voices a few short years later when those same federal bureaucrats that led them forward into their Brave New World STOLE $45 to 60 Million from those funds to do 2 things Congress had (wisely) refused to either fund or authorize – 1. Release wolves into Yellowstone Park to spread all over the Mountain West, and 2. Open a new office in California for USFWS and all those radical environmental/animal rights groups that dwell there to cozy up together like some cheap Grade-B movie characters. So all those old, but valid, objections by a few hotheads like yours truly are hereby shown to have been true. Even wildlife “scientists” (OOOH) tell the entire nation that “their tax dollars” are going to something he dislikes and should be stopped and those doing it punished.

Well Herr Doctor and all the rest of you with your panties in a wad this “ain’t” healthcare where you can mandate it and then complain about old folks getting knee replacements or stints that “YOU PAY FOR.” First, if you want to complain start buying guns and ammunition and then whine as a real contributor, and then 2. whine about why anything that perpetuates and increases Alaskan moose and caribou hunting and license sales (short of turning over Christian children to Jihadists) is not a worthy use of those Excise Taxes.

This brings up two other items. First, this PEER lawsuit has USFWS fingerprints all over it. USFWS is always modifying the regulations and with the current crop of “Public Employees” would see this suit as right up their alley as a way to kill hunting. Their moral indignation and ignorance is only exceeded by the arrogance that bleeds all over this PEER lawsuit. Yet another reason to reduce bureaucratic power and the size of the federal “work” force.

Second, yesterday I received a Waterfowl & Retriever magazine in the mail. Page 5 reports “Hunting Expanded in National Wildlife Refuge System”. The “expansion” covers 6 new programs that I suspect are six new refuges and “expansion” on 20 other Refuges of indeterminate amounts. My first reaction was that this was a ploy for Democrats in tight re-election races to brag about bringing home some “bacon”; why else would this be done at this time by the current USFWS bureaucrats?

When I turned the page I saw why. Delta Waterfowl has “sent a letter” (one is tempted to ask if it was one of those “strong letters” said to follow a strong public verbal objection?) to USFWS opposing the USFWS California/Nevada Regional Office decision to “cease migratory bird programming (that means all waterfowl hunting programs Pilgrims) in California and Nevada in order to address a backlog of permitting, research and evaluation needs related to wind and solar energy projects.” So now USFWS is an energy apologist outfit as they exempt wind propeller operations from any prosecution for killing eagles that they will still send you and me to prison for. All of the waterfowl work for which they were founded is now set aside for “permitting, research and evaluation needs related to wind and solar energy projects.”

By the way, this CA/NV Regional Office is the very same office that Congress refused to fund or authorize in the early 1990’s but for which USFWS STOLE $45 to 60 Million from the above EXCISE TAXES to open surreptitiously. Republicans, upon discovering what took place were all set to close that office but serendipity intervened when USFWS made the recently hired daughter of US Senator Ted Stevens, perhaps the most powerful Republican in the US Senate at that time, the office manager. Alas Congress was right when they said NIX to any new office in California but USFWS stole the money, did it anyway and all the “perps” went on to greater fame and glory in Earth Day Celebrations and on lists of great conservationists as their annual salaries reached dizzying heights.

So here are a couple of suggestions:

1. Ask your state fish and wildlife Director where he stands on the lawsuit to bar Alaska from using PR funds for predator control to improve moose and caribou hunting. Tell him you believe this is a very dangerous precedent to allow anti-hunting lawsuits to expand federal authority while diminishing state authority over the use of PR funds for hunting programs. Ask him what he is going to do.

2. Ask DU, PF, RMEF, and any other hunting organization you belong to the same questions as in #1.

3. Send a letter to USFWS in Washington with copies to every state and federal elected person you know, STRONGLY objecting to USFWS rejecting their Migratory Bird Management Responsibilities for which they receive Migratory Bird Funding AND then using those dollars and those employees to be little more than undeserved apologists for the wind energy industry that has consistently killed millions of birds while USFWS looked away and is now receiving exemptions to kill eagles from USFWS. USFWS has lost sight of their mission and the responsibilities for which they were created and exist.

4. If any of the worthies in #’s 1 & 2 tell you they won’t join with Alaska to defeat this lawsuit, or that it doesn’t affect waterfowl or pheasants, etc., or they just try to baffle you with BS — stop giving any money to such organizations and work for the dismissal or firing of your State Director and look to clean the state F&W house of anti-hunters regardless of any federal or state protections, preferences or powerful relatives.

Strong Letter to Follow!

Toward Martial Law

VIDEO: This is an interesting video of a former Navy Seal. From my perspective, the important message here is that this man believes the U.S. Government is attempting to provoke veterans and other citizens to do “something” that will result in martial law. I believe this to be a very real possibility. Much of the rhetoric in this video is pretty much the same old, same old, along with an advertisement for the Oath Keepers.

If martial law is the goal, there are several ways that it can happen and we shouldn’t become focused on one event. These provocations are prevalent at all levels of society and government. Be on the lookout. We are being forced to live them everyday.
