I remember the Obama years pulling into a sweet honey hole of a cat spot and there on Federal Land a new sign had been posted for the 1st time in my life. "CLOSED BY ORDER OF THE SECRETARY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR"
"for the benefit of all habitat."

I thought to myself, "Did habitat make a phone call?"

Under Trump = it all opened up and I killed a bunch of nice bobcats.
Under Biden.... I doubt they tossed those signs. They are propped in a backroom and they almost have them ready to load in the pretty green-blue electric trucks.

I remember now >>> I never ever liked the human definition of Dominion.

Blessings,
Mark

Rep. Deb Haaland of New Mexico has been nominated by the President to be the next Secretary of the Interior. She has expressed anti-trapping views and supports the ban of trapping on public lands in her home state. If confirmed by the Senate, she would have control over federal public land in the US.
Confirmation hearings begin with testimony next week. Please contact your Senator before then and express your opposition to this individual. The stakes have never been higher. Please act now! Action needed before Feb 22nd.


I have tried to confirm what you posted but have not been able to verify. Do you have a link to what you posted? I am talking about her anti-trapping and ban of trapping on public lands.

I don’t want to post links to anti trapping sites, but several have touted her anti trapping stance.

"Rep. Haaland appeared in our video against trapping on public lands in 2018 and she delivered an inspirational welcoming address during Guardians’ virtual Gala this September."

"Feb 1, 2021 — Congresswoman Deb Haaland says trapping is "the cruelest form of death that ... 'With only 87 wolves in the wild in New Mexico, it's one of the most ... We support Roxy's Law — the bill to ban private, recreational trapping on ..."

"The Wildlife Conservation and Public Safety Act under consideration by the Legislature is also known as 'Roxy's Law. ' A bill that would outlaw the use of traps, snares and wildlife poison on public lands in New Mexico cleared its first legislative hearing Tuesday."

" Deb Haaland has long advocated for eliminating trapping on our public lands:
“It’s just the cruelest form of death that we can inflict on an animal.” "

"We have seen that in action—as a champion for our causes at the state level, like our successful fight to stop coyote killing contests; as an enthusiast for plant-based eating; and as a supporter of our continued work to ban traps, snares, and poisons on our public lands. "

I understand your frustration Born but MN only has 2 Senators out of 100. I bet trappers are not the only ones advocating against Rep Haaland. Energy, ranchers, etc cannot be happy with this Biden "uniter"!

"MISSOULA, Mont. – Reacting to President-elect Joe Biden’s planned nomination of Rep. Deb Haaland of New Mexico as secretary of the Department of the Interior, Backcountry Hunters & Anglers President and CEO Land Tawney issued the following response:

“Rep. Haaland has been a vocal and effective leader in the House of Representatives, championing conservation issues and elevating critical voices from indigenous communities in her home state of New Mexico. Her familiarity with the West and our public lands and waters are an asset that will serve hunters, anglers and all outdoor enthusiasts as she faces critical decisions for the Interior Department from Day One.

“From potentially devastating energy development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to irresponsible mining within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness watershed, the future of America’s public lands – and healthy fish and wildlife populations, as well as our cherished outdoor traditions – are at a crossroads. Backcountry Hunters & Anglers looks forward to working with Rep. Haaland as she assumes the interior secretary post.”"

MISSOULA - not surprising - Backcountry Hunters Anglers - no surprise either.

Wonder how long before the wokesters dump on them for having guns and killing meat.

Born:

But now that Haaland could be on track for confirmation hearings to begin next month — perhaps as soon as next week — the fierce opposition is starting to make itself known.

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), who sits on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, which will oversee Haaland's confirmation proceedings, appears ready to hold Haaland to account for the Biden administration's plans to stop issuing new leases for oil and gas drilling on federal lands.

"It won't hurt the people who are sitting around congratulating themselves on 'leave it in the ground' policies," Cassidy told E&E News. "It will hurt a family who was able to send their children to a better school, take a nice vacation in the summertime. ... It will destroy their livelihoods."

Rep. Pete Stauber (R-Minn.), who as a House member does not get a vote on whether Haaland is installed at the Interior Department or not, is nonetheless seeking to use his platform to call attention to what he says are worrisome elements of her record.

"The nomination of Representative Haaland as Interior Secretary embodies clear support for the Green New Deal and a rejection of even the potential of high-wage jobs," Stauber wrote yesterday in a letter to Biden co-signed by 14 fellow House Republicans.


The members added, "We implore you in the strongest terms to withdraw [her] nomination ... and instead nominate a consensus-driven individual who will not implement policies that will kill jobs and increase the country's reliance on foreign adversaries."

There has been speculation that Haaland won't be confirmed until later in February or even March, with Democrats hoping to avoid a situation where they have too many vacancies in their slim House majority and it becomes more difficult to advance the early pieces of the new president's legislative agenda (Greenwire, Dec. 22, 2020).

Here's a little more Born

So does Haaland. In the previous Congress, she co-sponsored H.R. 5598, a bill to reinstate the Superior National Forest mining prohibition that the Trump administration axed. Her support for the bill represents one of her "attacks on responsible development," Stauber's letter contends.

The mine could be a test case for Haaland at Interior, as the department's Bureau of Land Management is leading the project's environmental review. It could also come up at her confirmation hearings, but Stauber will have to find senators who are sympathetic to his cause to press the case.

Minnesota's two Democratic senators, Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, have been somewhat reticent in the past to dive into the Twin Metals debate, but both are highly unlikely to make it an issue that would jeopardize Haaland's confirmation prospects in a split legislative body

I think that if Haaland is confirmed a lot of our lives are going to change. She scares me.

Pete Stauber is my representative. You can thank me now for voting for him.

Tina Smith and Amy Klobochar did not get my vote.

IMO Murkowski is still a yes vote. Nothing in that political speak to make me believe she will oppose this appointment.
Rep. Don Young captain statement is why I believe this.



She was introduced by a guest to the Senate, Alaska’s lone Congressman, Rep. Don Young, who said though he and Haaland disagree on carbon fuels, the two of them had worked together across the political aisle in the House Natural Resources Committee.

“I have a theory, because I’m a mariner, that the captain of the ship has a right to choose who he has as the crew,” Young said in his introduction of Haaland to the Senate committee. “President Biden has chosen Deb, and she has accepted, and I would suggest, respectfully, you’ll find out that she will listen to you.”


Young said while they may not change each other’s final opinions, “it’s my job to convince her she’s not all right, and her job to convince me that I’m not all right.”

Young noted the historic implication if Haaland were to be confirmed as Secretary of the Interior.

“She’ll be able to raise the American Indian, the first Americans to the position I think they can be and have achieved in the state of Alaska. For that I’m very proud,” he said.

Very sorry drasselt, It's a done deal


Help yourself.

Murkowski was very critical in her questioning today, but could just be for show.
I messaged King (Maine) with extreme disappointment that he failed to bring up the lynx delisting under ESA. Won't matter, he's a yes for Haaland, but sometimes you gotta get it off your chest!

Same here in MN. Our two senators have always voted the opposite of my opinion. No point in contacting them for anything. They aren't interested in what their constituents think unless it's in agreement with their left wing agenda.

Sportsmen and women need to stand up and start yelling. If we stay quiet, they'll just roll over us. I know it seems pointless some time, but their side has never and will never give up. We have to fight.
