Court rules Wyoming wolves should be stripped of federal protections

PLEASE DON’T SHOOT ME.

Damn!

In finding the picture above of a Wyoming wolf I had to look at dozens of pictures of hunters holding the dead bodies of wolves shot and killed for sport. Horrific. I won’t show those pictures. It’s a wolf holocaust in the American West.

Wyoming is one of two American states that has no refugee resettlement program. Montana is the other.

That’s the good news. Welcoming dangerous parasites into your home is not a good thing to do.

The bad news is that Wyoming also does not welcome wolves, who were present on the land long before the white man showed up.

The wolf is a far less dangerous predator than the two-legged refugee. Like all living creatures he needs to eat and feed his family. Surely, the state can allow the few hundred remaining wolves to live peacefully among the grasslands and forests of that sparsely populated state.

But no.

(Reuters) – Wolves in Wyoming should be stripped of Endangered Species Act protections and management given to the state rather than the U.S. government, a federal appeals court ruled on Friday, a decision that opens the door for hunting of the animals.
U.S. wildlife managers in 2012 determined that wolves in Wyoming had rebounded from the threat of extinction and that the state plan to oversee the creatures was adequate to ensure their survival.

But conservation groups sued, contending the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had acted in an arbitrary and unlawful fashion in finding Wyoming’s plan acceptable. They argued the state would fail to maintain the animals at certain population levels and would subject a portion of them to being shot on sight.

A U.S. district judge sided with environmentalists in a 2014 decision and the several hundred wolves in Wyoming were once again placed under federal safeguards.

The state, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Agency and others appealed that ruling and, on Friday, the U.S. Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia reversed the lower court, finding that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had indeed “exercised its judgment in a reasonable way” in concluding that Wyoming’s management plan would provide wolves with sufficient protections.

“The record demonstrates that the Service reasonably and adequately responded to concerns about the reliability of Wyoming’s management plan,” the court said in the opinion.

The decision was quickly hailed by Wyoming’s Republican governor, Matt Mead, who said in a written statement, “This is the right decision for wolves and for Wyoming.”

Mead said the state will once again assume management of wolves once the 2012 delisting rule is formally reinstated but the time frame was not immediately clear.

Conservationists decried the ruling, which they said they were still reviewing.

“But we’re going to continue to fight to protect wolves from hostile and extreme state management policies where they exist,” Tim Preso, attorney for the environmental law firm Earthjustice, told Reuters by telephone on Friday.

Wolves were hunted, trapped and poisoned to near extinction in the Lower 48 states before coming under federal protections in the 1970s.

They were re-introduced to the Northern Rockies in the mid-1990s over the objections of ranchers and sportsmen, who feared wolves would prey on livestock and game animals favored by hunters.

In 2011, wolves in Idaho and Montana were delisted through an unprecedented act of Congress. Both of the Northern Rocky Mountain states have liberal hunting and trapping seasons tied to wolves.

The wolves are speaking to us. They are saying, “Don’t kill us.”

Listen, and heed their call.

Praying for The Five Most Endangered Species: Today is World Wildlife Day

Also, praying for ALL the world’s wonderful wildlife, whose existence enriches us all.

Here are the 5 most endangered animals.

1. Amur Leopard

2. Black Rhino

3. Bornean Orangutan

4. Cross River Gorilla

5. Eastern Lowland Gorilla

If any of these sad creatures can be saved from extinction, it will be the work of the European peoples who get the job done.

Today is World Wildlife Day – a day dedicated to saving endangered species.

Conservationists from around the world will come together today to discuss how to make a difference but, importantly, to actually make that change happen.

The United Nations says half of the world’s wildlife was lost in the last 40 years, a trend nature lovers are desperate to reverse.

Study sees U.S. life expectancy falling further behind other countries

CLICK TO ENLARGE.

Although I have no link to offer, I saw a headline a day or two ago that said that nonwhite, third world doctors make up 25 percent of the doctors in America. Surely, medical schools have dropped the intelligence levels required for study in order to accommodate third world minds. That can’t be good for life expectancy.

Then you have the obese black and Mexican populations straining the medical system with their obesity related illnesses.

Although feminists still screech loudly about the oppression by the patriarchy, women still live substantially longer than men in America. Maybe that’s because white men are working their asses off to pay for welfare benefits for blacks, browns, and single mothers.

Whatever, the USA is fuxated. It’s going to take more than the repeal and replacement of Obamacare to fix what ails a country that aspires to third world status, a country effectively under the control of an (((enemy))) population that seems Hell bent on destroying it.

Life expectancy in the United States is already much lower than most other high-income countries and is expected to fall even further behind by 2030, new research published today predicts.

According to the most recent government figures, life expectancy at birth in the United States is 76.3 years for men and 81.2 years for women.

Using a number of forecasting models, researchers from the U.K. predict life expectancy in the U.S. will improve to 83.3 years for women and 79.5 years for men by the year 2030.

But despite these modest gains, the United States is still lagging behind other developed countries.

“The USA has the highest child and maternal mortality, homicide rate, and body-mass index of any high-income country, and was the first of high-income countries to experience a halt or possibly reversal of increase in height in adulthood, which is associated with higher longevity,” the authors write.

The United States also lacks universal health coverage available in other high-income countries and has the largest share of unmet health care needs due to financial costs.

The study, published in The Lancet, predicts and ranks life expectancy for 35 developed countries across Asia, North and Latin America, Australia, and Europe.

The findings predict life expectancy is likely to be highest for women in South Korea at 90.8 years, France at 88.6 years, and Japan at 88.4 years. For men, life expectancies will be highest in South Korea at 84.1 years, and Australia and Switzerland, both at 84 years.

The researchers say other nations, particularly the United States, could take lessons from these countries when it comes to improving life expectancies.

“For example, South Korea projected gains may be the result of continued improvements in economic status which has improved nutrition for children, access to health care and medical technology across the whole population,” study author James Bennett, PhD, of Imperial College London, told CBS News. “South Korea has lower disease risk factors — for example, they appear better at dealing with high blood pressure and have low rates of obesity. A very equitable society means that the whole population has benefitted from improvements.”

Unlike other studies, which typically rely on a single model to predict life expectancy, the researchers used a statistical technique used in weather forecasting to develop 21 models to predict life expectancy in the countries studied.

Studying life expectancy is important, the authors say, because increasing life expectancies will have major implications for health and social services and countries will need to adapt and create new policies to support healthy aging. This may include increase investment in health and social care and possibly changes to retirement age.

In addition to calculating life expectancy at birth, the study authors projected how long people aged 65 years in each country were likely to live in 2030. They found that in 11 of the 35 countries studied, 65-year-old women were likely to live an additional 24 years, while 65-year-old men were likely to live an additional 20 years in 22 of the countries. This suggests that older populations are likely to continue to grow across developed countries.

The authors note that the study cannot take into account certain changes within countries that could impact life expectancy, including the possibility of major political upheaval that can affect social and health care systems.

California Secession: Marxist Nation of California Would Fail to Survive

While a youth, I read all of Robert Ringer’s books. He taught me some lessons on how to survive in a world that grew increasingly hostile to white men.

In this piece he mocks the ability of California to survive as an independent nation, attributing its dysfunction to Marxism.

Those of us here know something else that Ringer fails to mention. When you have a third world people, you end up with a third world country. Two-thirds of the population of California is nonwhite.

It’s a disaster.

Lew Rockwell

There’s been a lot of talk recently about California seceding from the union. It’s akin to Hollywood celebs vowing to move out of the country if a Republican wins the White House. Meaning that it’s all bluster. Those who extol the virtues of the People’s Republic of California love to make hollow threats, but they possess neither the courage nor the financial resources to back them up.

If California were ever on its own, within six months of its “independence” it would be unable to function at even a survival level. Though it boasts the sixth largest economy in the world (larger than that of both Brazil and France!), there’s no economy big enough to keep a Marxist country afloat. This has been demonstrated time and again in such failed nations as Cuba, the Soviet Union, Mozambique, and every other country that has experimented with socialism/communism in any of its hideous forms.

The majority of California’s adult population consists of adult children whose brains have never developed beyond adolescence. They cling to a stunted Woodstock mentality that makes them incapable of rational thought, which, if not addressed professionally, has the potential to be fatal. They live in an Oz-like land of constant frustration, which causes them to resort to tantrums and violence as the combined solution to every perceived problem.

White House Denies National Guard Immigration Force as (((Schumer))) Denounces Trump for Enforcing the Law

From where I sit near the Texas-Mexico border, it’s too bad that 100,000 National Guardsmen are not being mobilized to bring the chaos under control.

Breitbart

The White House is flatly denying media reports that the Trump Administration is considering using national guard troops as immigration officers to round up illegal aliens.

“There is no effort at all to round up, to utilize the National Guard to round up illegal immigrants,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said of the report, The Hill reported. “That is 100% not true. It is false. It is irresponsible to be saying this.”

Spicer continued, “I don’t know what could potentially be out there, but I know that there is no effort to do what is potentially suggested.”

The Associated Press reported on a leaked “draft memo” claiming that up to 100,000 National Guard troops could be used to round up unauthorized immigration. The AP reported the plan would round up illegal aliens living nowhere near the Mexican border. The headline appears to falsely claim “Trump weighs mobilizing Nat Guard for immigration roundups.”

Department of Homeland Security Spokesman David Lapan responded to an inquiry from Breitbart Texas stating, “The Department is not considering mobilizing the National Guard for immigration enforcement.”

The AP report claims:

Four states that border on Mexico are included in the proposal — California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas — but it also encompasses seven states contiguous to those four — Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.

Governors in the 11 states would have a choice whether to have their guard troops participate, according to the memo, written by U.S. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general.

While National Guard personnel have been used to assist with immigration-related missions on the U.S.-Mexico border before, they have never been used as broadly or as far north.

The memo is addressed to the then-acting heads of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. It would serve as guidance to implement the wide-ranging executive order on immigration and border security that President Donald Trump signed Jan. 25. Such memos are routinely issued to supplement executive orders.

The AP claims the 18-page January 25 “draft memo,” addressed to Obama holdovers in the CBP, calls for the troops to “perform the functions of an immigration officer in relation to the investigation, apprehension, and detention of aliens in the United States.”

Breitbart Texas reached out to Texas Governor Greg Abbott for comment on the alleged plans. A response was not immediately available. The governors of Arizona, Utah, Nevada, California, Colorado, Oklahoma, Oregon and New Mexico told the AP they were unaware of the memo.

CHARLES SCHUMER.

The Hill

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) blasted a report that the Trump administration is considering using the National Guard to round up undocumented immigrants for deportation, a claim that the White House has denied.

“That’s despicable,” Schumer told reporters during a press conference on Scott Pruitt’s nomination to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. “That would be one of the most un-American things that would happen in the last century.”

He added: “I just hope it’s not true.”

Twitter is a leftist sewer but a few sane conservatives have survived the purges.

Mike Cernovich has Tweeted that the report was a deliberate fabrication to expose the White House leakers. I’m not including that Tweet above because Cernovich has been wrong over and over and over again. I think he makes up stuff to inflate his importance.
