The single most important thing you need to understand about the BLM,EPA,USFS,and USFWS is the reason they are pushing ranchers,loggers,farmers,and individuals off of land that’s often been in the families for generations.
The whole clusterfuck is the fault of the environmental-emphasis on
the mental-movement,and the endless stream of lawsuits filed against the
USFWS,BLM,USFS,and the EPA.
These lawsuits not only cost hundreds of millions,if not billions of
taxpayer dollars-the lawyers from groups like the Center for Biological
Diversity-many,many more lawyers than biologists-earn a living from
Groups like The Center for Biological Diversity,Wild Earth Guardians
,Natural Resources Defense Council to name a few of the major serial
lawsuit filers,sue and then settle for whichever agency they sued
setting aside even more land that is restricted from most or all human
Most of these groups file their suits by abusing the endangered
species act-which by the way must go-it’s time to get rid of it to stop
Think back to the northern spotted owl,and the 70’s eco-freaks
spiking trees,maiming loggers for life,chaining themselves to trees
They got almost all logging stopped on USFS lands throughout the intermountain west,and the Pacific NW by abusing the ESA.
After all the drama and bullshit-logging was NEVER a danger to the
northern spotted owl-a larger,more aggressive species of owl had
displaced the spotted owl.
No apologies to the loggers out of a job-or maimed for life when
their chainsaws hit a spike in a tree-there was no anti-kickback feature
on chainsaws,or cut proof chaps, helmets with face shields back then-if
the saw kicked back and hit your arm,leg,head,face,wherever-you got
seriously effed up.
None of the people or groups involved ever admitted they were wrong either.
One of the worst abusers of the ESA,and most prolific filers of lawsuits is The Center for Biological Diversity.
They’re who got all the Nevada land around the Bundy ranch closed to grazing to protect the “endangered” desert tortoise-the same tortoise that the USFWS was euthanizing at a tortoise “sanctuary”in the same part of Nevada.
The very same Center for Biological Diversity that sued the EPA in an attempt to ban ALL lead ammo-using junk science,and made up bullshit.
The very same Center for Biological Diversity that passes out condoms with picture of “endangered species”-because they hate humans.
The very same Center for Biological Diversity that got farmers banned
from drawing irrigation water from the San Joaquin/Sacremento river
delta due to the presence of a 3″ fish-the delta smelt
The very same Center for Biological Diversity that sued for continued
ESA protection for the gray wolf-long after the wolf reintroduction
fiasco had reached the goal of 300 wolves,or 30 breeding pairs,which
caused a decade long legal battle,and took an act of congress to get the
gray wolf removed from ESA protection. Immediately after that loss,the
CBD filed for ESA protection for gray wolves in the great lakes
area,and the Mexican gray wolf in NM and AZ.
The wolf lawsuits…all 10 pages worth.
There’s another 3″ fish,the Santa Ana sucker,that
the CBD filed and won lawsuits over granting ESA protections,and
preventing nearly a million people from drawing residential drinking
water from an existing reservoir.
The very same Center for Biological Diversity who’s metrosexual members showed up in Burns Oregon,and at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge
Is everyone starting to get the picture? CBD et-al file a blizzard of
lawsuits in fed court-mostly in the 9th circus,against
USFWS delcares whatever
toad,frog,lizard,tortoise,mouse,rat,snake,bird,or fish is the
“endangered species” of the day,week,month,year,or decade must have ESA
protections and closes off millions of acres of “public” land to
everyone except for the enviro-nazis and the few humans who only want
to go hiking and take pictures are allowed-along with biologists
“studying” the supposedly endangered species-so they can file yet
another lawsuit falsely claiming the need for continued ESA
protection-like they did with the gray wolf in the northern Rockies-as
the wolf population swelled to 10 times the goal for removal from ESA
This scam is played out over and over and over-and each time,more
“public” land is closed to the public,and more families lose their
land,more loggers,ranchers and farmers lose their jobs.
The Center for Biological Diversity is only one of more than two
dozen such groups comprised of enviro and/or animal “rights” whackos who
continuously file lawsuits in fed.court.
This shit has been going on for over 35 years now-since the first
“earth day” in 1970-close to 4 decades of environmental and animal
“rights” whackos dictating public lands policies via lawsuits abusing
the Endangered Species Act.
This is why sawmills closed,loggers are unemployed,ranchers and
farmers and anyone else in the way of the feds settling of enviro-nazi
lawsuits is being pushed off of their land.
Those who refuse to sell are treated like the Hammonds were/are being treated.
