At the UN Earth Summit in Rio De Janeiro in 1992 a program of sustainable development known as UN Agenda 21 was introduced to an unsuspecting world. This far ranging UN program called for a complete transformation of society wherein private property, individual liberty, and God given (unalienable) rights would no longer exist and mankind would succumb to a totalitarian one world socialist/Marxist government that would control every aspect of our lives from cradle to grave.Western ranchers natural resource producers are targeted for elimination with virtually all public and private lands in the Western US becoming wilderness. This includes lands that have been owned and worked by the same families for 5 or more generations.
The misnamed re-introduction of Canadian Gray Wolves into Yellowstone Park was a scam from the very beginning. The plan was to move breeding pairs of a much larger and more aggressive wolf species from Northern Canada into the range of the smaller and more reclusive Rocky Mountain Timber Wolf that existed in manageable numbers throughout the Western Continental U.S. Most of those native wolves were soon wiped out by the much larger and more aggressive species and we now face a burgeoning wolf population that threatens wildlife, ranching and rural Americans in ways that would have been inconceivable fifty years ago.
U.S. National Forest policy has created an environmental crisis that could be easily avoided with basic stewardship and just a kernel of common sense. Decades of anti-logging policies and lawsuits filed by Environmental Attorneys posturing to stop every timber sale on National Forest lands have severely impacted the logging industry and are harming the natural and human environment.
Tuesday’s program will examine the misrepresented “reintroduction” of Canadian Gray wolves into the Yellowstone National Park aka Yellowstone International Biosphere during the Clinton Administration and the subsequent harm on western farming and ranching families that are at the center of the debate over grazing rights on public lands. Our guests will be Bob Fanning and Dr. Valerius Geist, and the subject will be the proposed introduction of these same apex predators into the highly populated state of Colorado and the presence of a particularly virulent strain for parasite known as Echinococcus Granulosis carried by these wolves that are a serious threat to humans and domestic animals as well as native game species. We will connect the dots between these radical large predator reintroductions and the destruction of traditional small farming and ranching operations that are dependent on grazing leases on public lands.
There is absolutely no justification for these radical apex predator policies, especially when there are known public health dangers and such enormous consequences for animal husbandry and rural American lifestyles. Hear from two leading experts on the history and ecological consequences of a Federal policy known as Apex Predator Re-introduction that started as the brainchild of the radical environmentalist founder of Earth First, Dave Foreman. This important radio broadcast will help you to Connect the Dots between radical environmentalism and the attacks on rural America that are destroying our way of life and our tradition of strong private property rights and freedom from tyranny.
Independent farmers and ranchers who produce much of America's meat supply have come under special scrutiny and attack in recent years by federal agencies, environmental NGOs and tax exempt foundations that increasingly support a re-wilded North America and vegan lifestyles. Grazing leases on public lands that have been an essential part of Western ranching for many generations are increasingly restrictive or being terminated; with rule of law, common sense, or science having no impact on these decisions. This process started out so gradually that most rural Americans paid little attention to the refocus of government land agencies from friend, neighbor and protector of people to advocate of radical environmentalism.
Tomorrow morning we will be doing a program with Property Rights Attorney and Constitutional Law expert Harriet Hageman, and Local Government Consultant and Property Rights Advocate Jim Carlson, who have promised to give our listeners a very large dose of truth and enlightenment on the degree and impact of Federal overreach on public and private lands. This promises to be a very frank and open discussion of a subject that impacts all Americans, not just rural landowners. Private property is a cornerstone of our free republic, and the continual reduction and eventual elimination of those rights will eventually impact everyone and needs to be understood as a basic freedom that must not be sacrificed.
