  • Extinction Rebellion isn’t about the Climate

    Yes, yes, I know. The climate is breaking down. It’s urgent. An emergency. We’ve only got a few years left to ‘fix’ it. Indeed, we won’t fix it. Weather patterns will become increasingly unstable and unpredictable, and the effects it will soon have on how humans around the world grow food will be devastating, likely causing harvests to fail across entire continents and food prices to sky-rocket. Millions have already suffered due to the amplified instability. We’re facing imminent societal collapse (whatever that means), both around the world and in the UK. All of our lives are soon going to...

    Shy Society ^ | 5/20/18
    Independent MEP Janice Atkinson has become the latest high-profile public figure to speak out about “The Great Replacement” which argues that native Brits and Europeans are being systematically replaced through mass, uncontrolled immigration.Writing in the Voice of Europe following an exclusive by Shy Society over an English Heritage training programme excluding white people, the South East England MEP says that when she first read about the theory she thought it was an “over reaction”. But the former UKIP politician has recently changed her mind and is now “absolutely convinced” that The Great Replacement is a concerted effort by globalist elites...

    MY TWO CENTS: THE BUNDY RANCH & FREEDOM IN AMERCIA (Throughout the article, Click on any picture for a larger image) What happened in Clark County Nevada, north of Las Vegas, with the Bundy Cattle Ranch in late March and April of 2014 is a story that should be told to all Americans. We should all be proud of what firecly independent, God-fearing Americans accomplished there in standing up to Federal Government over-reach. Having been personally involved with other such incidents in the western United States over the last 15 years, I wanted the people of the United States to...
  • Buying Votes With Water

    Politics: The water spigots are back on, at least temporarily, in California's Central Valley. Turned off to protect a tiny fish, they happen to be in the districts of two congressmen "undecided" on health care reform. One could chalk it up to good fortune or just good constituent service. But in the middle of a contentious health care debate marked by Cornhusker Kickbacks and Louisiana Purchases, we may be forgiven if we find an announcement by the Department of the Interior regarding California's water supply a tad too coincidental. On Tuesday, the Department of the Interior announced it was increasing...

    Environmentalism: Sen. Dianne Feinstein votes to deny water to California's drought-stricken San Joaquin Valley. Farmers, families and food are being held hostage to an endangered fish called the delta smelt. (snip) The Senate rejected the amendment by a largely party-line 61-36 margin, with Feinstein opposing the restoration of water deliveries to farmers. The California senator claimed she was blindsided by the amendment to the bill she was managing in the Senate, bizarrely comparing the move to a "Pearl Harbor." "No one from California has called, written or indicated they wanted this on the calendar," Feinstein protested.

    Here we go again. I was watching Sean Hannity tonight (9/17/2009), and have been following loosely the situation in the San Joaquin Valley of California with their water crisis over the small Delta Smelt minnow and its endangered species listing. The Farmers have water rights to that water. There is no legal water rights for that water for a minnow over the farmers. There is only a manufactured judicial legal decision by liberal judges based on junk science and the whims of administrators and bureaucrats that create these incidents based on the Endangered Species Act and a rabid environmental...

    A federal government water resources inspector went out to a Texas ranch to investigate water use at the large Texas property. The old rancher met him in the drive and told him that he appreciated and understood his job, but that there was one irrigated pasture that the government man simply would not be able to inspect or check out. The government man became a little irritated and said, "What do you mean I can't inspect or check it out?" The inspector then pulled out his official government ID and told the rancher, "You see this ID? It says here...

    Associated Press ^ | Jun. 10, 2008 | SCOTT SONNER
    A judge awarded more than $4.2 million to a late Nevada rancher's estate after finding that the U.S. Forest Service engaged in an unconstitutional "taking" of water rights out of hostility to the rancher, a property rights activist. The decision ... involved the Fifth Amendment clause against private property being taken for public use without just compensation. The rancher, Wayne Hage, bought the sprawling Pine Creek Ranch in central Nevada in 1978. the taking occurred when the Forest Service made it impossible for Hage to maintain irrigation ditches, which deprived the ranch of water and made it unviable. The government...

    Bakersfield Californian ^ | 12/3/04 | Seth Hettena - AP
    SAN DIEGO (AP) - Several Western governors called Friday for a reform of the federal Endangered Species Act that would promote conservation while giving states a greater say in how their lands are managed. "What I believe is we want to recover the species," said Colorado Gov. Bill Owens, a Republican. "Let's not use the act as a way to try to manage private and public properties. Let's use the act to help us learn how to recover the species." The 18 states that make up the Western Governors Association, which opened its winter meeting in San Diego Friday, say...

    Heritage Areas implement federal zoning, plain and simple. Proponents of these disasters can spin it any which way they want. The truth is that federal money for Heritage Areas is administered through the National Park Service to radical preservation and conservation groups that are hell-bent to lock away anything and everything within the Heritage Area that they see fit. In fact, in the actual Heritage Area bills, local greens ARE DIRECTED to lock away and preserve everything in sight. Only this time, with National Heritage Areas, the Park Service formally teams up with local greens to take away YOUR private...

    MISSOULA - The vice president of the Montana Farm Bureau appealed to loggers and sawmill owners Thursday not to be intimidated by "endangered species terrorism." "Al-Qaida only had to fly airplanes into buildings once," John Youngberg told the annual meeting of the Montana Wood Products Association. "After that, they only have to anonymously threaten to do so to put the United States on high alert. "Likewise, environmental activists only had to have one success - the spotted owl - to put industry into a tailspin." So great was the upheaval caused by protection of the northern spotted owl - sawmills...

For three years, the Bush administration has been encouraging stewardship, engaging those who know and understand the issues best.

    DES MOINES (DTN) -- When gray wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park during the mid-1990s, it started a heated debate between wildlife enthusiasts and ranchers that has never cooled down. The ongoing clash of opinions recently hit the airwaves. Residents in Bozeman, Mont., are the first in the nation to hear anti-wolf radio messages paid for by the Montana Stockgrowers Association. The messages, which will air for the next 60 days, were created to call urban attention to the economic impacts on ranchers caused by wolves, said Steve Pilcher, executive vice president of the Montana Stockgrowers Association. Bozeman was...
