Republicans were thrilled by the new rules.

Forestry

After a year of so many devastating forest fires in left-wing California, President Donald Trump has finally thrown out Obama’s disastrous, envirowacko forestry policy and replaced them for common-sense forestry.

There is only one reason that the forest fires were so destructive in California and that is because Barack Obama put in place disastrous rules given to him by the envirowacko movement, rules that supposedly favored “the treeeees” at the expense of human life and property. Indeed, even at the expense of the forests themselves.

Well, Trump has finally acted and taken an axe to Obama’s terrible, life-threatening forestry rules.

Trump issued an executive order Friday to allow for active management of forest and rangelands, including thinning and removing debris from millions of acres of federal lands.

The order also calls on federal officials to streamline regulations and permitting processes to allow the harvest of at least 3.8 billion board feet from U.S. Forest Service lands and 600 million board feet from Bureau of Land Management lands.

That represents a massive increase in timber sales from federal lands. For example, loggers harvested 2.9 billion board feet from Forest Service lands in 2017, according to federal figures. But even Trump’s increased allowance for loggers is still about one-quarter of what was harvested in 1973.

Republicans were thrilled by the new rules.

“While litigation activists thwarted forest management reforms, the Senate also failed to pass legislation to help minimize forest fires,” Utah GOP Rep. Rob Bishop, chairman of the House Committee on Natural Resources, said in a statement.

“As a result, parts of the West were left in ashes. We cannot ignore these systemic issues any longer,” Bishop said.

“This executive order will save lives and communities throughout the West!” the Congressional Western Caucus tweeted last week.

Outgoing Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke blamed environmentalists for the increasingly devastating fires in the western U.S. — environmentalists often sue to keep federal officials from removing trees or conducting prescribed burns.

Indeed, last month Zinke slammed the enviirowacko movement.

“When we’re prevented from managing our forests by these radical environmentalists — they’ve had lawsuit after lawsuit, they have somehow promulgated to let nature take its course — this is the consequence of letting nature take its course,” Zinke told Breitbart News Sunday in November.

“We need to go back to prescribed burns late in the season so you don’t have these catastrophic burns, remove the dead and dying timber, sustainable harvests, get the small mom and pop mills back where they’re grazing the forest and return to healthy forests,” Zinke added.

He is 100 percent right.Mark this as another Trump success and an end to yet another horrible part of Obama’s legacy.

Widow Of Man Mary Trump Said Was Paid To Take SAT For President Trump Denies Claim

Published

on

The widow of a former friend of President Trump’s has come out and denied a claim that her late husband was paid to take the SAT for him, a claim that comes from the pages of a new book by Mary Trump, the president’s niece. Pam Shriver, who is a former tennis superstar and current tennis analyst, responded to the claim by denying any knowledge of her late husband, Joe Shapiro, having ever took the standardized test for the president. Here’s more information via The Washington Examiner: “When you put somebody’s name in print in a book, you want to make sure the facts around it are correct, especially if they are not living because it’s not like Joe is here and he would have known how to deal with this,” Shriver said in a video posted to social media on Wednesday. She also said her late husband met Trump during their time at the University of Pennsylvania, which would have been years after the president had taken the SATs, because he originally went to Fordham University for two years before transferring. “My late husband Joe Shapiro passed away 21 years ago. He was a man of great integrity, honesty; he was a hard worker. He was literally the smartest person I ever met,” Shriver added. The book by Mary Trump, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created The World’s Most Dangerous Man contains the following passage concerning the allegation: “To hedge his bets, he enlisted Joe Shapiro, a smart kid with a reputation for being a good test taker, to take his SATs for him. That was much easier to pull off in the days before photo IDs and computerized records. Donald, who never lacked for funds, paid his buddy well.” There’s no actual proof this event…

Supreme Court Says Manhattan District Attorney Is Allowed To Obtain Trump Tax Returns

Published

on

A new ruling handed down from the Supreme Court states that President Trump’s accountants will have to release years of financial records and tax returns to the Manhattan district attorney, ruling that he doesn’t have immunity from a grand jury investigation in NYC. Cyrus R. Vance Jr., who also happens to be a Democrat, a fact which will surprise absolutely no one, will now be allowed to the see returns in question after the justices voted 7-2 in favor of the release of the tax returns being released. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s two appointees to the court, joined the majority. However, Trump prevailed in the second case as the justices said it would not allow Congress to obtain tax and financial records, kicking the issue back to the lower courts. Unlike other recent presidents, Trump has refused to publish his tax returns and other financial papers that would provide a snapshot of his wealth. Back in May, there was three hours of oral testimony held by teleconference in which lawyers went back and forth over whether or not the House of Representatives and a New York prosecutor could subpoena Trump’s banks and accounting firm for his financial documents. There are three House committees who are seeking to get a peek at records from Mazars, the accountants for the Trump Organization, and two banks that gave loans to several Trump businesses. Democratic leaders think that the documents in question will give insight into whether or not Trump borrowed cash from, or had dealings with, Russian companies before taking office. Yes, that’s right. The left is still harping on the Russia nonsense, digging and rooting through every bit of garbage they can find to uncover whether or not there’s some sort of connection between…
