Conference Call for Pipeline Fighters, landowners and #NoKXL activists

1 Comment


 

Bold Nebraska has organized a conference call for Pipeline Fighters, landowners and #NoKXL activists this Thursday evening, July 13th, to discuss the final public hearing on Keystone XL scheduled for July 26th at the Ralston Arena in Omaha, the Aug. 6th “March to Give Keystone XL the Boot” in Lincoln, and the upcoming week of intervenor proceedings at the Public Service Commission Aug. 7-11.

Dial in to join us at 6:00 p.m. CT on Thursday for a Keystone XL conference call update from Bold’s Jane Kleeb.

We have outnumbered the pro-KXL supporters by 3-1 or more at the recent public hearings on Keystone XL, and it’s critical that we turn out in full force for this final Public Service Commission meeting on July 26th in Omaha.

This is your last chance to speak out on the record against Keystone XL — as the “intervenor” proceedings in August will be open to the public to attend and observe, but no public testimony will be taken during that week.

Mark your calendar: Make plans now to join us on Sunday, August 6th in Lincoln for the “March to Give Keystone XL the Boot.More

BLM Criticized for Selling Wild Horses for Slaughter

Straight from the Horse's Heart

Sources: Multiple, story by By MEAD GRUVER

“How long does a horse have to live wild and free before it’s considered wild?”

— The Bureau of Land Management rounded up a horse herd that roamed for decades on federal land in northwest Wyoming and handed the horses over to Wyoming officials. They, in turn, sold the herd to the highest bidder, a Canadian slaughterhouse.

Wild horse advocates are incensed, saying they should have had a chance to intercede in the March roundup and auction. But the BLM says the horses were abandoned — not wild — and that it publicized the sale beforehand.

“It would take very little to do this in a more effective way, so that horses are not just sent off to slaughter indiscriminately,” said Paula Todd King of The Cloud Foundation, a Colorado-based advocacy group.

According to the BLM, the Wyoming horses weren’t…

Mixed message from Wyoming tourism

6 Comments

Marti Oakley       © Copyright 2012  All Rights Reserved

____________________________________________________________________

Wyoming began running this ad for tourism back in march of 2011 as near as I can tell.  Obviously, the Wyoming board of tourism is either blissfully unaware of the ongoing activities of  “Slaughterhouse Sue” Wallis, a Wyoming state representative who has a predilection for consuming horse-flesh, or maybe just hopes that you, the tourist, are not aware.

Using the imagery of our wild horse icons, Wyoming tourism encourages you to visit Wyoming and roam free! Kind of like the wild horses are meant to.  I find it strange and somewhat sick that the state of Wyoming would use these icons to attempt entice visitors to the state, while at the same time entertaining ideas on how to eradicate them and possibly put them on your table.

As this video was shot with the camera’s close in, we are not able to determine just why the horses became agitated enough to charge the fence and take off running at full speed away from the pen where they were being held.

Was  “Slaughterhouse Sue” approaching with a fork in one hand and a napkin in the other?  Wallis, who back in November 2011 was condoning the posting of pictures of a young woman who had killed her horse and then crawled inside it for a photo op was documented by RT Fitch at Straight from the Horse’s Heart:

Wallis Lights Up over Pics of Nude Woman Inside Dead Horse

(Quote from Slaughterhouse Sue)

“People humanely kill an old horse, butcher it to use the good meat, and decide to have some fun with it, and take pictures.” continues this sack of trash.”

Was the BLM cranking up its horse harvesting machine in an attempt to obliterate yet another herd?

Was there another “professional” helicopter hitman attempting to land his machine on a horse’s back just for fun?

The fact is, we have no idea what made them bolt and run.  But the imagery is clear and so is the message.  These animals are meant to roam free and that means free from the prospect of harassment and being terrorized as the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) continues its deadly eradication campaign.

They should also be free of the “Slaughterhouse Sue’s” of the world whose interest is not healthy and enduring herds, but simply “what’s for dinner?”

I find it to be an ironic and sick message put out by Wyoming tourism:

Come to Wyoming and watch as we terrorize, capture and send to slaughter hundreds of these national icons!  Save this video, by the time we are done…..there won’t be one left!

The BLM’s big “fire sale” of our land

 A Six-Point Plan to Avert a Global Crisis” and the 2010 National Geographic’s special issue cover story was “WATER: Our Thirsty World.”   Would it be too much to hope that Dept. of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar or BLM Director Bob Abbey might have read these and consider water issues?  (Oh wait a sec, the Gulf Oil Spill happened under their watchful eyes.)  Or that as leaders of U.S. land management agencies, they’d be concerned with vanishing supplies of uncontaminated water? 

________________________________________________

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is selling YOUR land right out from under you.  Concurrently, the BLM is blitzing the media with PR spin to justify removing all of our publicly owned wild horses off of our public lands.  If you want to see what has really been happening to our wild horses at recent roundups, go to http://blog.grassrootshorse.com/

Do you know how many acres of your public lands are being sold off in each state?  This is a policy being pushed by your President, your Congress, Ken Salazar (Secretary of the Dept. of the Interior) and Bob Abbey (BLM Director).  Your state and local governments have their hands out to receive part of the profits.  Your “public agencies” (like the Department of the Interior and the Bureau of Land Management) are actually corporations and their priority is to make money. 

Each BLM office is required to have quarterly “lease sales” of your public lands.  The BLM is making their money off of you and the remains of your United States of America. 

To keep this simple, we’ll just look at one state’s lease/sales of our public lands to oil and gas companies.

Wyoming, as it turns out, is going gung ho on oil and gas “leasing.”  The BLM calls giving the use of our public lands to extractive industries for as little as $2 an acre a “lease sale.”  These are 10 year leases and they can be renewed.  Oil and gas companies can ask for certain parcels of public property to be leased. 

However, unless you’ve ever heard of an oil pipeline being ripped out after it was installed, I’d call this a “permanent” use of our public lands.   An oil or gas (or mining) company will extract all of the oil/gas/ore.  They often contaminate water, land and air.  They use a LOT of our water from aquifers in their extracting process.  More

Slaughterhouse Sue’s Big Fat ‘F”arce: Wyoming faces attack of the horse eaters

Although Wyoming has at least one ethics law concerning its legislators, nobody seems to have gotten around to enforcing that pesky thing. Sue Wallis (“Slaughterhouse Sue”) hasn’t even bothered with a revolving door – she has just parked her butt in two different chairs at the same time – as a Wyoming State Representative (R) and also as the Executive Director of a trade/lobbying “mutual benefit corporation” called United Organizations of the Horse (UOH). UOH states it is concerned with “excess” and “unwanted horses” and claims that’s the reason it’s pushing so hard to reinstate horse slaughterhouses in the United States.
What they’re really pushing for is using horse meat for food. The UOH has an “Equine Assurance Program” which is supposedly about horse meat food safety.
A big problem with UOH’s “excess” and “unwanted” horse drivel is that UOH has taken financial contributions from the Biotechnology Industry Organization (www.bio.org). This is the huge, big bucks, powerful lobbying arm of animal cloning companies including ViaGen (which is actively cloning horses – genetic engineering companies including Monsanto, and pharmaceutical and chemical companies.

Who is Sue Wallis and Why Should I Care?

The statement in the headline was made to a reporter from the Wyoming Tribune Eagle in late April of this year, by Wyoming State Representative Sue Wallis of Recluse, WY.

Wyoming Rep. Sue Wallis ~ A life dedictated to eating horses

On March 9, Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal signed into law a bill that enables the Wyoming Livestock Board to send stray, unwanted or feral horses to slaughter. Prior to this legislation, the Board could only send such horses to public sale.  This bill (http://legisweb.state.wy.us/2010/Enroll/HB0122.pdf), was introduced into the Wyoming House on February 11, 2010 by Rep. Sue Wallis, and was signed into law less than 30 days later. 

Upon review, many parts of the bill are quite troublesome (even aside from the fact that horse slaughter is an extremely controversial issue in the US).  In the section in regards to the due diligence required for a Board inspector to determine ownership of an “estray” horse, the horse “cannot be held for more than 10 days” before being sent to slaughter.  Under this language, an inspector could make the decision in 1 hour that the horse was a stray or feral and make the arrangements to have the horse sent to the slaughter facility.  Additionally, it states that “the board shall provide meat from estrays disposed of by slaughter….to Wyoming state institutions or to nonprofit organizations……” meaning among other things prisons, schools and state run health facilities.

A big Stinkfly award goes to Ken Salazar!

Ken Salazar, quite possibly one of the most insidious characters to occupy an appointed federal office since maybe, Donald Rumsfeld, has just topped his own high measure of malfeasance.  Heading up what has become notorious for being one of the most grossly mismanaged agencies of the federal government, the Department of the Interior (DoI), Salazar has set into motion some of the worst plans and policies ever implemented by the DoI.  Among these policies is the eradication and zeroing out of herds of wild horses and burros all supposedly protected under the 1976 Wild Horse & Burro act. 

Its unfortunate that the 1971 Act contained no provisions allowing for the protection of the herds from the BLM, itself.  The BLM represents the most formidable threat not only to the wild herds, but also to the environment and biodiversity as well.  More

For Immediate Release 

BP and Ruby Pipeline Connection Raises Questions About Removal of Calico Wild Horses from Northwestern Nevada
 
Bloody BLM roundup results in more than 140 deaths of federally protected animals
 
Colorado Springs, CO (July 10, 2010)—A contract between the $3 billion Ruby Pipeline project managers, El Paso Corp of Colorado Springs, Colorado, and energy giant, British Petroleum, was uncovered this week by ATS News, the investigative journalism arm of number-one “alternative topics” web site, AboveTopSecret.com. The contract reveals how BP stands to reap millions of dollars from the proposed 675-mile pipeline from Wyoming to Oregon. Ruby would destroy areas of pristine wilderness in northwestern Nevada, formerly home to the majestic wild horses of the Calico Mountains. Ruby Project Coordinator Lars Ecklund said during an April 16 meeting, reported on by the Klamath Falls Herald and News: “Don’t think we’re going to put this pipe in without making a mess . . . It’s going to look like Hiroshima. It’s going to look nasty.”  More

Wyoming Joins Phony “Sovereignty Movement”

6 Comments

According to an article on the Tenth Amendment Center website, Wyoming’s governor Dave Freudenthal has just signed Wyoming’s Joint Resolution 2 (HJ0002), claiming “sovereignty on behalf of the State of Wyoming and for its citizens under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government or reserved to the people by the Constitution of the United States.”

The problem with this, as well as with identical resolutions from several other states, as I have pointed out before (see “Sovereignty Hypocrisy,” “Sovereignty Hypocrisy – Part II,” and “Sovereignty Hypocrisy – Part III”), is that Wyoming, like all the other states “declaring sovereignty” is simply blowing a smoke screen to conceal its involvement in the New World Order police state that is slowly coalescing right before our eyes.

As with most of the other states “declaring sovereignty,” Wyoming also has FEMA camps within its borders, More
