Protections for 27 national monuments may be curtailed, cut

Source: Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Twenty-seven national monuments, mostly in the West, face the curtailing or elimination of protections put in place over the past two decades by presidents from both parties, the Interior Department said.

President Donald Trump ordered the review last month, saying protections imposed by his three immediate predecessors amounted to “a massive federal land grab” that “should never have happened.”

A list released Friday includes 22 monuments on federal land in 11, mostly Western states, including Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante in Utah, Nevada’s Basin and Range and Katahdin Woods and Waters in Maine.

The review also targets five marine monuments in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, including a huge reserve in Hawaii established in 2006 by President George W. Bush and expanded last year by President Barack Obama.

1. Not only Trump

That fucking thief Zinke! The fucking crook Navy Seal, that filed false reimbursement papers, but all the Navy did was slap him on the wrist, because he was a Seal!!!

I get tired of hearing about the heroics of Navy Seals, but never hearing about the crooked, corrupt, among them!

4. "The review also targets five marine monuments"

16. RW /DOI does this 'comment period' collection as a tactic to present warped statistics to our

'Law changers' . All Congress will see in final report are thousands of comments from special interests 'people' who wish to graze, mine or drill as much as they can off lands that charge Corporations the lowest lease fees in the world. DOI (our government money) even cleans up their mess for them.

Those National parks, the Public lands and even State parks belong to ALL Americans. If we let Republicans take away even a tiny bit of OUR LAND, they'll ruin it all forever.

13. I wish Trump would explain something to us

Mr. Trump, please explain how is a national monument - on property owned by the US government - a federal land-grab?

Our government already owns the properties where the monuments are situated, and nobody is "grabbing" anything.
The monuments are protected for all the American citizens of every generation to visit and enjoy.
How and why is it up to you Mr. Trump to change that protection?

By de-classifying the federal protection of these monuments, Mr. Trump you are setting in motion a land-grab of another kind. You may not *sell* our national monuments for private personal ownership. I would consider that an impeachable offense.

14. One thing is for sure...

When he starts in on the national parks and memorials he won't open up Mt. Rushmore. There will be too much work going on chiseling his own face over that of George Wasington for any other kind of drilling.

15. What Have They Done to the Earth?

What have they done to the earth?
What have they done to our fair sister?
Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her
Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn
And tied her with fences and dragged her down

I'm sure there'll be a challenge and when Drumpf loses there'll be another Twitter tantrum.

18. What for!?

I just don't understand how taking away protections for our natural wonders is supposed to make "America Great Again". Trump is such an idiot, even Bush had sense to establish a reserve.
