house Bill H.R. 2546

Should Nearly 1.4 Million Acres of Land in California, Colorado, & Washington Be Designated as Wilderness?

Argument in favor

Designating these federal lands as wilderness and making additions to the National Wild & Scenic River System would permanently protect some of the most majestic and unique landscapes in America from being tarnished by human development and management.

Yes, Protect Our Natural Resources, Dammit. No more rolling back of the protections of our natural wonders so that our lands can be pillaged by unfettered profiteers, polluted by their mining excrement, nor forever lost to future generations.

This is the right direction for our National protected lands & parks! The bill runs counter to this administration’s goal to privatize parks, sell off America’s wild horses at auctions to foreign slaughter houses, and use our lands for drilling/fracking. This administration’s greed is obscene.

Argument opposed

The six bills in this package failed to achieve the local consensus needed to merit permanent designation of these lands as wilderness. Additionally, these bills should be considered individually instead of being into a larger package for the sake of transparency & accountability.

Haven’t these idiots in Congress been listening to our new house leader AOC? The end of the earth is less than 10 years away and nothing we can do can change it.

The states rights and wishes should be considered. If there wasn’t support for these as individual bills, combining them as one bill and attempting to push them through again isn’t the best approach. Fix the issues that cost them support, then submit them for a vote.

    Yes. California should also adopt land management techniques that prevent forest fires, that they then blame on climate change

    Preserving wilderness areas is critical to maintaining a healthy environment on earth for humans as well as wildlife. It goes far beyond just having incredible places for camping, fishing, or enjoying beautiful landscapes. Maintaining wilderness areas protects biodiversity of our environment and provides natural purification for water and air. Once a wilderness area has been altered by human activity, there is no going back. Only a very small portion of the land area of the US is actual wilderness area- less than 5%. There is just no reason for corporate greed to take precedence over maintaining our environmental wonders.

    Wilderness is highly valuable for healthy ecosystems as well as for low-impact recreation—and greater mental health. We humans have long had a bad habit of pillaging every available natural resource—lands and waters—for profit. (Think mining and logging, for example.) We owe it to future generations to be responsible stewards of what we still have and enjoy in the natural world. This bill will do that. Vote yes on this bill!

    Sure. That would be great but it will not pass the Senate. McConnell will put it on the stack with the others that he holding. Nothing that House Democrats pass will make it past McConnell. We had better get ready for a budget impasse and government close down this year. We need to be ready to support House Democrats in their efforts. We are all in this fight and it will cost us all. What are you willing to pay? Only words?

    trump has again interfered in a criminal case having Barr reduce the sentence of trumps co-conspirator Roger Stone, who was found guilty of lying to Congress and witness tampering. trump is running out of friends who aren’t in jail, being prosecuted or pleading guilty. $650 a night at Mara Lago and $17,000 a month at Bedminster is what the tax payers are being charged by trump for the secret service to stay at his resorts. We now live in trumps world where you are punished for speaking out against what is wrong, trump has removed Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and his brother, as well as Gordon Sondland. 75% of Americans think there should have been witnesses and FOXs own poll shows half of Americans think he should be convicted and removed. 24 emails show trumps thoughts on withholding Ukraine aid and the Justice Department is refusing to release them unredacted. A congressional budget office says our deficit will surpass $1 trillion this year in part because of trumps 2017 tax cuts and increased government spending. trump told Bolton to withhold Ukrainian aid until they announced an investigation against his political rival. trump has rolled back parts of the Clean Water Act that would directly benefit real estate developers. Shit water for us, big buildings for him. trump has made it easier for our kids to eat junk foods at school instead of healthy alternatives because he is petty and does not care at all when it comes to our children. Marie Yovanovitch a U.S. ambassador was followed, threatened and then fired all at the direction of or directly by our president in exchange for dirt on a political rival from a Ukrainian prosecutor who didn’t like her because of her support for anti corruption groups. Russian spies hacked into Ukrainian gas company behind trumps conspiracies, again entangling Moscow in our politics. trump is trying to divert another $7.2 billion in pentagon funds for a wall that no one wants and wouldn’t work. Accused Obama of being week, pathetic and a bad negotiator so he was going to start a war with Iran in order to win re election. So much for bringing the troops home. 90 minutes after phone call with Ukraine president aid was withheld. Christianity Today now says trump should be removed from office. White House officials feared Putin influenced trumps views on Ukraine. trump, “I new it was Ukraine because Putin told me.” trumps inspector general report says FBI had authorized purpose to investigate trump campaign Russian ties. Three constitutional scholars have stated trump has committed, what is clearly spelled out in the Constitution of the United States, impeachable offenses. Attorney General Barr’s handpicked prosecutor says there is no evidence that supports Russia investigation was a setup or hoax. Why was bipartisan approved military aid to Lebanon held up for months by White House.(Jared Kushner has a lot of ties to that part of the world) Giuliani in talks to be paid by Ukraine official, while they were working together to attack trumps political opponent. Donald McGhan ordered to comply with subpoena. Bolton’s next:) Devin Nunez met with Ukrainians and directly pushed for Biden investigations. The meetings were set up by Giuliani’s Russian criminal friend Lev Parnas. Sondland was on a “Domestic Political Errand.” Was there a quid pro quo? Sondland, “Yes, Everyone was in the loop”. David Holmes, testified that Ukrainian officials “came to understand what was required” in order to get military assistance and a meeting with trump. U.S. ambassador to Ukraine felt threatened by trumps remarks and was threatened by trump while testifying. Long time friend and confidant of trump Roger Stone, found guilty of lying and witness tampering. trump has asked the Supreme Court to keep his taxes hidden. So, no more separation of powers in the government? trump sought status of Ukraine investigations showing aid was depended on the investigations themselves. trump complains that witnesses all speak from 2nd and 3rd hand knowledge yet ordered Mulvaney not to testify. Laura Cooper testified that the Pentagon sought clarification from the trump administration about the hold up of the Ukraine aide and received none. A second person has said they reported sexual misconduct involving a former doctor who’s been accused of sexually abusing nearly 300 men over a 17-year period to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his staff felt they would not get the millions of dollars in aid money without publicly committing to launch the investigations Trump wanted. Senior trump administration officials considered resigning en masse in a ‘midnight self massacre’. State Department official says Giuliani was engaged in a campaign ‘full of lies and incorrect information’ about former ambassador. trump has issued pardons for two soldiers being tried for war crimes and returned rank to a soldier who took a selfie with a dead body. trump to pay $2 million for charity foundation misuse. trump wanted attorney general Barr to hold a news conference saying the president broke no laws on Ukraine call. White House official who heard trumps call with Ukraine president was told to keep quite. White House lawyer moved transcript of trump call to classified server after Ukraine adviser raised alarms. He has politicized our national security and has chosen Putin and other dictators over our own congress and security agencies. “I stated to Amb. Sondland that his statements were inappropriate, that the request to investigate Biden and his son had nothing to do with national security, and that such investigations were not something the NSC was going to get involved in or push,” Vindman adds. Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman, a top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council is testifying that trump demanded that a foreign government investigate an American citizen in exchange for Congresses approved aide. Just reached a $984 billion deficit while he lines his pockets with our tax dollars and foreign money at his resorts. $400 million in aide money was withheld from Ukraine back in August and Ukrainian leaders were told it was not red tape, that they needed to talk to Chief of Staff Mulvaney to resolve it and make a CNN statement about Biden in order to receive said aide. Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, is running a shadow foreign policy in Ukraine that circumvents U.S. officials and career diplomats in order to personally benefit President trump. Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas. Look them up. North Korea just tested a submarine launched missile. Deserted our Kurdish allies who have been fighting ISIS with us and now are being slaughtered. All because he has a tower in Istanbul. “The Americans betrayed us. We do not trust them anymore,” she added. These used to be our Kurdish allies that stood against ISIS. He is refusing to comply with the law. He is using the power of the presidency to withhold aide to one of the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet in exchange for political favors in order to sway the 20/20 election. He is acting like a criminal and threatening the life of the whistleblower. Mr. America first is sending troops to Saudi Arabia in support of a murdering dictator who spends millions at his hotels and resorts. Corey Lewandowski testified to congress that trump ordered him to obstruct justice. He is blocking information that pertains to the safety of our country from reaching congress. He has been threatening NOAA, a federal agency, with punishment if they do not disavow the truth and side with his lies. He invited the Taliban to Camp David the week of 9/11. He is a #PussyAssBitch He’s doctoring weather maps to try and prove he’s not an idiot. He has stayed at trump properties 293 days in 3 years, that’s our tax dollars going directly into his pocket. He took money from military daycares to pay for a wall that won’t work and no one wants. The Vice President and the Attorney General are both spending tax payer dollars on trump hotels, lining his pockets and currying his favor. He has privately instructed aides to skirt laws and regulations to get the wall built faster — and told them he will pardon them if necessary. He is pressuring a government agency to give a contract for his wall to a company whose chief executive is a donor to one of his top GOP allies in Congress. He took hundreds of millions from 127 different projects (FEMA being one of those) for his wall. He thinks nuking a hurricane is an idea. He is host the next G-7 at one of his own resorts. Again our tax dollars paying him directly. He taunted Iran by tweeting a classified image of an Iranian rocket that had exploded, thereby potentially compromising U.S. intelligence capabilities. His own company would save millions from the low interest rates he is demanding. He was going to give you tax cuts through your paychecks but decided not to. This year the richest of us payed less in taxes than the rest of us. He is destroying the economy with HIS trade war. We will soon average a 1.2 trillion deficit. He is repeating NRA talking points on background checks so expect no action taken regardless of the fact there has been 27 arrested over threats to commit mass attacks since El Paso( NOT TOLEDO). He made fun of republicans being afraid of the NRA and then caved after a 30 minute phone conversation with them. He bragged about indefinite child detention because it brings families together. He is refusing flue shots, that protect us all(google influenza pandemic), to immigrant children. He is attacking fellow congresswomen in really disgusting ways and making anti-Semitic remarks about Jews calling them disloyal. He thinks he’s the chosen one based on a conspiracy theory web sight. He has: Obstructed Justice. Is profiting from the Presidency. Colluded - They had a meeting & lied about it. Advocated political & police violence. Abuse of power. Engaging in reckless behavior. Persecuting political opponents. Attacking the free press. Violating immigrants Right to Due Process. Violating campaign finance laws. Racist: Speaks directly to and often tweeting straight from white supremacists. Calls them very fine people. Told fellow congresswomen to go back where they came from. Called them shit hole countries. Called them murderers and rapists. Calls her Pocahontas. Took out full page adds calling for the death of five innocent black kids in New York, 1989. Literally has said in an interview he has Hitlers speeches, My New Order in his nightstand. Our Money: Spent campaign finance money on hush payments to silence a porn star he had an affair with in order to hide it from the voters. Has spent over $100 million of our tax dollars playing golf at his own golf courses. Has never divested from companies and advertises and profits off the White House. Was going to cut Medicaid and Medicare funding to pay for the tax cuts he gave to the rich. Is actively destroying farmers lives with his trade wars that we all know only hurts our pockets not Chinas. Has made the lives of every truck driver across America as well as our own, more dangerous by removing safety regulations that only benefits the pockets of the CEOs of those companies. Has removed any and all protections we had in place from work safety, environment, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights and gives that power back to the CEOs, oil companies, men and old white men. Saudi funded lobbyist rented 500 rooms at a trump hotel he never divested from right after he became president. Wonder why? Sexual Predator: Accused by more than 20 women of molestation and rape. Bragged about said molestation on tape. Has cheated on all three wives (see above). Has made sexual remarks on camera about his daughter. Belittles and bully’s women. Not even sure he’s aware he has two daughters. Idiot: Has allowed North Korea to grow there nuclear weapons program. Took the side of Putin over America’s own security agencies on the national stage. Lacks the intelligence and facts needed to communicate on a global level much less national one. Makes policy decisions based on FOX media. Lies when speaks. Doesn’t believe in science and quite often displays his ignorance of it. Russia: Lied about meetings with Russians. Lied about a trump tower Moscow. Personal attorney Michael Cohen (same guy who broke campaign finance laws under trumps direction) had contacts with russian officials. National Security aide Flynn resigned over Russian contacts. Jeff Sessions recused himself because of Russian contacts. Manafort resigned because of Russian contacts. Campaign foreign policy adviser Papadopoulos met with Russians then bragged about it to Australians who then turned that info over to our FBI. Sixteen campaign officials had contacts with Russia and at least nine others new about it. Russian mobster lived in trump tower. trump casino was flagged 106 times for lax money laundering standards and same Russian frequently stayed at trump casino. Has been selling real estate to Russians for years. It really is surprising how many connections to Russians this man has. Rick Scott, Marco Rubio, Bill Posey You are my representatives. OLC policy: The indictment or criminal prosecution of a criminal investigation of a sitting President would unconstitutionally undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions. It’s time to do your job. You swore an oath to this country, it’s people and me to uphold the constitution. The president has never upheld that oath. How do you want to be remembered?
