One of the defining characteristics of the Trump presidency is the prevalence of bad advice, and givers thereof, evidenced by the turnover in his administration.
What about the BLM? What has the President been told about America’s wild horses?
When interviewed back in September about the agency’s move to Grand Junction, U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) said, in response to a question about the location of the new headquarters (same building as some of the companies that lease federal lands),
“Washington is infested with special interests. You mean to tell me that BLM is insulated from that? They’re infested.”
Is the WHB program affected? Of course it is.
You only need to look at the signatories to the ill-conceived ‘Path Forward‘ to see who’s calling the shots:
- American Farm Bureau Federation
- Society for Range Management
- Public Lands Council
- National Horse and Burro Rangeland Management Coalition
- National Cattlemen’s Beef Association
When you come across a story about the wild horse ‘crisis,’ such as this one, posted today by United Press International, think about outside influences, hidden agendas and the underlying beliefs of the legislators and bureaucrats.
The ranching cabal wants the horses off the range so their food can be sold to them.
Everything else is pretense.
