    Radical GOP-led Bill Promotes Killing of America's Threatened Wildlife

    This shameful bill would allow trophy hunters to kill grizzly bears on public land—using silencers.

    , the U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources passed the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act—the so-called SHARE Act—with votes coming only from Republican members of the committee.

    a grab bag of shameful provisions aimed at

    opening National Park Service lands to grizzly bear killing (of all places, they should be protected on our “national preserves”),

    poisoning wildlife with the use of lead tackle and ammunition (even though there are practical and affordable alternatives), and

    promoting the killing of threatened species (e.g., wolves and polar bears).

    at odds with common sense, but also with the unmistakable demographic patterns in the United States.

    Just last week, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released its periodic report on wildlife recreation. Among other things, the report revealed that

    the number of wildlife watchers is soaring (a 20 percent increase in the last five years to 86 million in 2016), while hunter numbers have declined by two million since 2011, when the agency last examined the question, to just 11.5 million.

    Wildlife watchers outnumber sport hunters by a ratio of seven to one and spend $75.9 billion on their pursuits, as compared to $25.6 billion spent by hunters.

    The Natural Resources Committee’s vote is really more about the wishes of the NRA and the Safari Club,

    and not about helping hunters and fishermen, who get almost nothing from this boondoggle of a bill and who would be shocked by its anti-conservation provisions

    unwind an NPS rule that forbids extreme hunting methods on lands that never were meant to be set aside for these purposes.

    loosening restrictions on the baiting of migratory waterfowl and barring EPA restrictions on the use of lead-based fishing equipment.

    SHARE also

    handcuffs the departments of Interior and Agriculture by prohibiting either agency from regulating the use of lead-based ammunition, ammunition cartridges, or fishing tackle where such uses are allowed by the state where the hunting and fishing occurs.

    a sweetheart deal to help 41 wealthy polar bear trophy hunters import the heads of rare polar bears they shot in Canada.

    give trophy hunters and commercial trappers priority access to the more than 100 million acres of congressionally designated “wilderness areas” across the nation. This provision weakens the core purpose of the Wilderness Act,

    Repugs fuck up everything they touch, because their BigDonor shield them from all accountability.

    Within hours of meeting with a mining company CEO,

    the new head of the US Environmental Protection Agency directed his staff to withdraw a plan to protect the watershed of Bristol Bay, Alaska,

    DOJ changes excessive force program



    The Department of Justice announced Friday it would immediately enact “significant changes” to an Office of Community Oriented Policing Services initiative

    to better support local law enforcement

    the alterations would “better align” with the principles Sessions laid out in a memo in March.

    In that memo, the former Alabama senator called for a review of all the department’s activities, which included “collaborative investigations and prosecutions, grant making, technical assistance and training,” among others while stating it was not up to the federal government to “manage” local law enforcement.

    Sessions did state the preservation of civil rights was key to his department’s work

    the COPS office has spent more than $14 billion to aide local departments and some of its programs have included grants meant to improve relations between police and minorities.

    Pruitt diverts EPA agents to protect him 24/7, instead of protecting YOU from pollution

    Back in May, Coral Davenport and Eric Lipton at the New York Timesreported how Environmental Protection Agency-hating EPA chief Scott Pruitt was instilling a sense of paranoia in the agency’s offices.

    Among other things, they wrote that he required round-the-clock bodyguards to accompany him even when he was at EPA headquarters. Pruitt is the first chief in the EPA’s 47-year history to order bodyguards 24 hours a day.

    Turns out—surprise!—that it’s not only true, but it also mucks up the core mission of the agency that Pruitt has said he wants the EPA to return to. Juliet Eilperin and Brady Dennis at The Washington Post report Wednesday:

    Scott Pruitt’s round-the-clock personal security detail, which demands triple the manpower of his predecessors

    at the Environmental Protection Agency, has prompted officials to rotate in special agents from around the country who otherwise would be investigating environmental crimes.


    The EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance has

    summoned agents from various cities to serve two-week stints helping guard Pruitt in recent months.

    And while hiring in many departments is frozen, the agency has sought an exception to hire additional full-time staff to protect Pruitt.

    Instead of the half dozen people usually assigned to

    EPA security details, Pruitt’s order requires 18.

    This at an agency that has seen in recent years a 20 percent cut in its budget, which peaked at $10.3 billion in 2010.

    Pruitt sought to cut another 31 percent in the fiscal 2018 budget, knocking it down from $8.1 billion to $5.65 billion.

    This would have forced a staff reduction from 15,000 to less than 12,000.

    The polluting, voracious, predatory oligarchy really got their Best Asshole to screw up EPA and the country.

    Bitch McC stole a SCOTUS seat for Gorsuch, now corrupt Gorsuch returns the criminally corrupt favor

    Justice Neil Gorsuch Accused of Campaigning for Senator Mitch McConnell

    Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch has been accused of campaigning for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

    Lawyer and writer Jessica Pieklo leveled the accusation against Gorsuch in a series of Twitter updates yesterday. Her initial tweet reads,

    “Neil Gorsuch is campaigning for Mitch McConnell which is totally appropriate for a member of SCOTUS.”

    Pieklo, an adjunct law professor at Hamline University School of Law in Boulder, Colorado, followed up her initial tweet by wondering out loud whether Gorsuch might be “the most unethical Justice” in U.S. history:

    How could there POSSIBLY be an appearance of bias when Gorsuch is glad-handing with Kentucky Republicans.
