Recovering America’s Wildlife Act Just Another Government Fraud?

Ammoland files a report about how the House Subcommittee on Natural Resources will take up discussion on the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act. Passage would mean billions of dollars from royalties paid by gas and oil companies. Most applaud this measure believing it will be good for “conserving” fish and wildlife and access to recreational land, but will it?

The red flag that shot up for was this bit of text: “Our nation’s fish and wildlife are among its most valuable resources, along with clean air, water, healthy forests and agricultural lands that support all of us,” stated Virgil Moore, President of the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and Director of Idaho Fish and Game. “Today we find ourselves at a critical crossroads and face a challenge that could alter our children’s and grandchildren’s opportunities to enjoy these resources. By investing in our State Wildlife Action Plans, which serve as a blueprint for restoring and managing the most sensitive imperiled species within our state’s borders, we will be ensuring future generations can enjoy our rich wildlife heritage.”

Note that there is not one single mention of the recreational acts of hunting, fishing, and trapping, And, you won’t read or hear about them either. Those pushing this fake act are doing it for the money and the furtherance of their agendas to ban hunting, fishing, and trapping. As a matter of fact, the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies lobbied Congress a few years back in order that they can have a piece of the Pittman/Robertson and Dingell/Johnson Excise Tax, paid in large part by hunters, fishermen, and trappers, to promote their anti-hunting, non-consumptive, environmental programs that work completely contrary to the North American Model of Wildlife Management.

Support this bill if you want to, but I see it as a worthless bit of tripe that will pull the wool over the eyes of many, many hunters and fishermen. Isn’t that really what the goal is?

What future is there in funding an agency whose objective is to destroy your heritage?

BUT DON’T GO LOOK!

Investigative Report of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Mexican Gray Wolf Program

For whatever the dog and pony show of a fake “investigative report” of the USFWS is worth, you can read and/or download a copy of the report that reads, “This is a version of the report prepared for public release.”

GRAND CANYON CATTALO STATUS OBSCURED BY SCIENCE SHELL GAME

Press Release from the Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility:

Washington, DC — The National Park Service is juggling the fate of a herd of hybridized bison marooned on the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park, according to correspondence released today by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). The agency has withdrawn a controversial report claiming these “cattalos” are wildlife “native” to Grand Canyon, a classification which would prevent their wholesale removal – an action supported by conservationists and the park’s own staff.

The decision on what to do with this orphaned herd, introduced more than a century ago for interbreeding with cattle, has been taken out of the park’s hands and commandeered by National Park Service (NPS) Headquarters. In 2015, Glenn Plumb, the NPS Chief Wildlife Biologist, issued a document called the “Grand Canyon National Park Bison Technical Assistance Report” which overrode the park’s previous stance that the hybridized herd is not native to the park but are exotic animals which should be relocated.

On March 17, 2016, PEER filed a legal complaint seeking the retraction of the so-called “Plumb Report” on multiple grounds, including that it flew in the face of available facts, ignored scientific literature concluding the opposite and violated NPS’s own data quality and wildlife management standards. NPS had 60 days to respond to the complaint. Rather than defend the Plumb Report, the NPS punted.

In a May 16, 2016 letter to PEER, John Dennis, the Chief Deputy Scientist for NPS, indicated the agency is working on a new “multi-authored scientific report …intended for peer-reviewed publication.” He adds that this new, as yet unrevealed, report is “superseding” the 2015 Plumb Report.

“This latest Park Service bureaucratic shuffle more resembles a game of three-card monte than a legitimate scientific effort,” stated PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch, noting that the NPS decided to discard the work of its own Chief Wildlife Biologist without explanation. “This new hide-the-ball report appears to be a nakedly political maneuver to avoid a credible and transparent scientific review.”

The stakes are high because the scientific question determines whether the cattalo stay or go: if they are native wildlife, by law they cannot be extirpated; if they are exotic, by policy they must be removed if they harm park resources – and the stagnant herd is unquestionably doing damage by killing rare plants, fouling springs and carving erosive trails into a very fragile part of the North Rim.

Dennis’ letter also declares that the issue of what to do with the cattalo herd, now grown to 800 animals, will be deferred to a “planned … bison environmental assessment.” These developments suggest that –

With the imminent exit of Superintendent David Uberuaga and his deputy, plus prior senior staff departures, Grand Canyon National Park personnel will play little role in this major, precedent-setting resource management decision within its own boundaries. At the same time, Glenn Plumb is being moved into Grand Canyon as its acting Chief of Science & Resource Management;

The NPS has predetermined the scientific issue of whether the cattalo are native by asserting the new unrevealed report has “fully satisfied applicable … processes and guidance”; and

The public involvement will be confined to short comments on an environmental assessment circuited for quick approval of the pre-selected NPS path – allowing state licensed hunters to pay for the privilege of “culling” this largely stagnant herd.

“The Park Service is desperate to create the illusion that these cattalo are some kind of mystery meat,” added Ruch. “There is no mystery that this is all about politics, not science, and that Grand Canyon will be the loser.”<<<More Information>>>

And, as is typical, when, as a government insider, when you really screw up, you get promoted. Daily Caller has that story.

Obama Implicates Self, Clinton and U.S. Government in Latest Executive Order

Because President Obama declared a state of emergency in 2011 via Executive Order 13566, under the powers he gave himself, he further establishes bans and prohibitions in the most recent Executive Order 13726, against himself, former Secretary of State Clinton and all complicit governmental agencies and individuals, as well as all clandestine organizations, foreign and domestic, participating in any kind of illegal or terror-related activities in Libya that might disrupt the Libyan government and the flow of oil from the National Oil Company, in addition to targeting anyone seeking protection from the government.

Executive Order — Blocking Property And Suspending Entry Into The United States Of Persons Contributing To The Situation In Libya

EXECUTIVE ORDER

– – – – – – –

BLOCKING PROPERTY AND SUSPENDING ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES

OF PERSONS CONTRIBUTING TO THE SITUATION IN LIBYA

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), section 5 of the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, as amended (22 U.S.C. 287c) (UNPA), section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 (8 U.S.C. 1182(f)), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code,

I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, hereby expand the scope of the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13566 of February 25, 2011, finding that the ongoing violence in Libya, including attacks by armed groups against Libyan state facilities, foreign missions in Libya, and critical infrastructure, as well as human rights abuses, violations of the arms embargo imposed by United Nations Security Council Resolution 1970 (2011), and misappropriation of Libya’s natural resources threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, democratic transition, and territorial integrity of Libya, and thereby constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States. To address this threat, and in view of United Nations Security Council Resolutions 2174 of August 27, 2014, and 2213 of March 27, 2015, I hereby order:

Section 1. (a) All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in: any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State:

(i) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have engaged in, directly or indirectly, any of the following:

(A) actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, or stability of Libya, including through the supply of arms or related materiel;

(B) actions or policies that obstruct, undermine, delay, or impede, or pose a significant risk of obstructing, undermining, delaying, or impeding, the adoption of or political transition to a Government of National Accord or a successor government;

(C) actions that may lead to or result in the misappropriation of state assets of Libya; or

(D) threatening or coercing Libyan state financial institutions or the Libyan National Oil Company;

(ii) to be planning, directing, or committing, or to have planned, directed, or committed, attacks against any Libyan state facility or installation (including oil facilities), against any air, land, or sea port in Libya, or against any foreign mission in Libya;

(iii) to be involved in, or to have been involved in, the targeting of civilians through the commission of acts of violence, abduction, forced displacement, or attacks on schools, hospitals, religious sites, or locations where civilians are seeking refuge, or through conduct that would constitute a serious abuse or violation of human rights or a violation of international humanitarian law;

(iv) to be involved in, or to have been involved in, the illicit exploitation of crude oil or any other natural resources in Libya, including the illicit production, refining, brokering, sale, purchase, or export of Libyan oil;

(v) to be a leader of an entity that has, or whose members have, engaged in any activity described in subsections (a)(i), (a)(ii), (a)(iii), or (a)(iv) of this section;

(vi) to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, logistical, or technological support for, or goods or services in support of (A) any of the activities described in subsections (a)(i), (a)(ii), (a)(iii), or (a)(iv) of this section or (B) any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or

(vii) to be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order.

(b) The prohibitions in subsection (a) of this section apply except to the extent provided by statutes, or in regulations, orders, directives, or licenses that may be issued pursuant to this order, and notwithstanding any contract entered into or any license or permit granted prior to the date of this order. The prohibitions in subsection (a) of this section are in addition to export control authorities implemented by the Department of Commerce.

Sec. 2. I hereby find that the unrestricted immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States of aliens determined to meet one or more of the criteria in section 1(a) of this order would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and I hereby suspend entry into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, of such persons. Such persons shall be treated as persons covered by section 1 of Proclamation 8693 of July 24, 2011 (Suspension of Entry of Aliens Subject to United Nations Security Council Travel Bans and International Emergency Economic Powers Act Sanctions). Further, United Nations Security Council Resolution 2174 shall be treated as a Resolution listed in Annex A of Proclamation 8693.

Sec. 3. I hereby determine that the making of donations of the type of articles specified in section 203(b)(2) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(2)) by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to section 1 of this order would seriously impair my ability to deal with the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13566 and expanded in this order, and I hereby prohibit such donations as provided by section 1 of this order.

Sec. 4. The prohibitions in section 1 of this order include but are not limited to:

(a) the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; and

(b) the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.

Sec. 5. (a) Any transaction that evades or avoids, has the purpose of evading or avoiding, causes a violation of, or attempts to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

(b) Any conspiracy formed to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

Sec. 6. For the purposes of this order:

(a) the term “person” means an individual or entity;

(b) the term “entity” means a partnership, association, trust, joint venture, corporation, group, subgroup, or other organization; and

(c) the term “United States person” means any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States.

(d) the term “Government of National Accord or a successor government” means:

(i) a Government of National Accord formed pursuant to the terms of the Libyan Political Agreement signed in Skhirat, Morocco, on December 17, 2015, or any amendments thereto;

(ii) a governmental authority formed under the Libyan Constitution pursuant to the terms of the Libyan Political Agreement signed in Skhirat, Morocco, on December 17, 2015, or any amendments thereto;

(iii) any subdivision, agency, or instrumentality of the foregoing, and any partnership, association, corporation, or other organization owned or controlled, directly or indirectly, by, or acting for or on behalf of, the foregoing; or

(iv) any other person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury to be included within paragraphs (a) through (c) of this section.

Sec. 7. For those persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, I find that because of the ability to transfer funds or other assets instantaneously, prior notice to such persons of measures to be taken pursuant to this order would render those measures ineffectual. I therefore determine that for these measures to be effective in addressing the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13566 and expanded in this order, there need be no prior notice of a listing or determination made pursuant to section 1 of this order.

Sec. 8. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to take such actions, including the promulgation of rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to the President by IEEPA and the UNPA, as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of this order. The Secretary of the Treasury may redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States Government consistent with applicable law. All agencies of the United States Government are hereby directed to take all appropriate measures within their authority to carry out the provisions of this order.

Sec. 9. This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

State hires conflict specialist to deal with wolf issues

*Editor’s Note* – Anytime any organization, private or governmental, presents any kind of conflict resolution program or invites the general public to participate in government programs, it’s a farce – designed only to deceive, to lie to people, making them believe they are “participating” in the process. It’s a rigged system.

In this case, it isn’t really about dealing with “conflicts” between people and wolves. It’s about dealing with humans in order that they do as they are told and worship the wolf, at the expense of human existence. Above all else, to brainwash the masses to believe that those who don’t worship the wolf is bad.

But don’t go look!

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife hired Francine Madden, who is executive director of the Human Wildlife Conflict Collaboration in Houston. The nonprofit works to resolve conflicts that arise when protecting animals leads to problems in local communities.

Day 43 – No Executive Orders

SMOKE AND MIRRORS!

If it hasn’t become obvious to you yet, since President Obama’s reelection, that his aim is to instill as much fear, deception, divide, racism, chaos, unrest…..or ?, it’s time to open your eyes. Presently, while absolutely nothing is being done in the White House (think the fabricated fears of sequester), the Campaigner in Chief is traveling around the country and….doing what I might ask? Near as I can tell, he’s trying to scare the hell out of people by attempting to tell them if the republicans don’t agree to make you give President Obama more of your money, we’re all going to pay heavily for that. Really? Aren’t we already paying heavily for this man’s political bent? Cannot Americans understand the intent of this ideologically twisted man? HE WANTS CHAOS!

He used the same tactic 43 days ago, when he headlined in a dog and pony show, reminiscent of the traveling medicine shows, telling the American people he was signing executive orders to limit and control guns (people). Whatever he signed one time on a piece of paper was evidently no more than toilet paper. When a president signs executive orders, those orders are made available to the people in order to read the details and be able to honestly disseminate the content and intent of the order. There are no executive orders and therefore any commentary made about these fake orders is dishonest and also fraudulent.

Where are those executive orders, Mr. President? Why were they not real? What are you hiding? Why have you lied? Is it just another one of your campaign tricks to anger more people? Do you want them to take to the streets and kill their fellow man? And then what will you do? Declare a national emergency and then become the dictator you want to be?

The New York Times, like the vast majority of ignorant, emotionally disturbed people, spends all of its time and energy writing about how law abiding citizens get their guns and not one word printed about what is being done to stop the damned crooks and murderers. Makes no sense, but then again, it isn’t intended to make sense now is it.

An outdoor writer from Maine has taken the right approach. Now here’s a man who isn’t caving in to nonsensical political pressures to reach a “compromise” (spelled giving up more of your rights to placate the communist left). He’s asking that the requirement of a permit to carry a concealed weapon be repealed. As George Smith puts it:

The concealed carry permit system is illogical, expensive and a waste of time and resources.

I personally do not and never have possessed a permit to carry concealed. I vowed I never would because it is nothing more than a glorified gun registry. I concur with Mr. Smith. Repeal all concealed carry permits now!

And finally, this video should turn your stomach. Politicians and useful idiots/True Believers preach that it is the gun owners who pose a threat to law and order. Really? In this video you will witness that it is NOT the legal permit-carrying man that poses any threat to anybody. Instead, a Florida law enforcement officer threatens to shoot a man if he moves because he’s done nothing wrong except the officer notices the man is carry a gun. (Warning: The police officer, paid with taxpayer dollars and is a representative of the people of Florida, uses F-bombs throughout the beginning of this video. It is obvious the officer is improperly trained, suspect to panic reacting and is a danger to himself and others.)

All you really need to watch is like the first minute. The rest of the time is spent with the officer telling the seemingly innocent man that he broke the law by brandishing a weapon.

For those interested, the gun laws of Florida say the following about whether a permit holder, carrying a gun, has to inform the police.

790.06….The licensee must carry the license, together with valid identification, at all times in which the licensee is in actual possession of a concealed weapon or firearm and must display both the license and proper identification upon demand by a law enforcement officer. Violations of the provisions of this subsection shall constitute a noncriminal violation with a penalty of $25, payable to the clerk of the court.
