senate Bill S. 831

Should the Gray Wolf be Taken Off the Endangered Species List?

Argument in favor

The gray wolf population has recovered, so there’s no longer a need for the species to remain on the Endangered Species List. Removing gray wolves from the ESA list will allow states, tribes and federal agencies to manage the gray wolf population appropriately.

Yeah, if it's no longer endangered, remove it from the list. If it becomes endangered again, put it back on the list. What is endangered? Life in the big city. People are fleeing over taxed blue cities. Not even the libs that voted for these idiot dem politicians want to pay their insane taxes. Go ahead, move to Texas and Florida. The larger cities there are already blue. You should fit right in. And once you vote in more idiot dems that raise your taxes, you'll have to move again... democrats ruining one Flint, Michigan after another, never learning your lesson. Not until you've really turned the rest of the US against you. It's fine. The Republicans will fix it, Making America Great Again, or as I like to say: Making America Red Again.

I live in Idaho with these wolves they are a invasive species imported from Canada that destroyed what was left of the Timber wolf population and now has drastically diminished the Elk population, and the Rangers tell me that there are many male Grizzlies that do not hibernate because they follow the wolf packs all winter and eat their kills and the packs run off and kill something else and the grizzlies follow... and they are becoming huge because they eat year round, and the Moose who are normally solitary animals herd up for protection, if they would have just brought back the Timber Wolf, the whole ecosystem would not be so messed up.... so yes remove them so they can be kept in check.

A dumb move by government to reintroduce such a predatory animal. It is beyond time that this mistake is corrected and this specie be controlled.

Argument opposed

While there’s been progress towards the recovery of gray wolf populations, there’s still work to be done. If gray wolves are removed from the Endangered Species List hunting and other stressors could undo years of conservation efforts.

The courts already overturned this decision once, because taking the gray wolves off of the endangered list will undo years of conservation efforts to save this animal. The hunters can wait!

This bill prohibits future conservation and is based on biased sources that want to protect their own interests, (money, ie cows) rather than the actual recovery of the species. You cannot call less than 10% of their former range “recovered”. How would you feel if the home insurance you were reliant on only rebuilt 8% of your house and said you were fine and they would never help you again? Oh wait, that’s like health insurance more than property insurance isn’t it? It’s Wrong either way. Protect our environment and our endangered species!

I agree with larubia: The courts overturned this once because it was not clear that the gray wolf was not still endangered. Environmentalists opposed the legislation based on the conclusion that the gray wolf population measurements and conclusions were not scientific and not credible. The court agreed. So, in classic political double speak and political double standards- we see this same bill being submitted again- but critically legislating that it cannot be subject to judicial review. I am starting to hate all Republicans for their repeated blatant obfuscations and attempts to push their will with underhanded legislative tricks to work around any reasonable challenges from the people. We are not all so stupid that we do not notice!

    I cannot support anything conservative Ron Johnson advocates because the NRA is in his pocket. This smacks of a veiled attempt to permit the hunting of wolves!

    No matter if the gray wolf has somewhat increased its numbers, the truth is that human population and activities continue to place undue pressure on them. Those concerns will only increase over time, not decrease. Continue to keep all protections on this animal!

    Because I have to live with this knowledge every day: He’s being sued for defamation by the woman who has accused him of sexual assault. 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 crime 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?

    Are you KIDDING?!?!? The grey wolf has just barely made a start off getting a leg back into the environment. The people who are killing them for taking their calves or lambs, which BTW is NOT. What happens if the animals are healthy, need to get a couple of llamas for their land and there won’t be more pests getting their animals. We NEED THE GREY WOLVES TO KEEP DOWN mice, rats, and other small animals who reek havoc on crops. Use your heads & for Gods sake DO SOME RESEARCH.
