27 Of Many Reasons To Impeach Trump's Ryan Zinke

by ARC 9 Friday, May. 11, 2018 at 2:36 PM

Zinke has removed dozens of Native Americans from powerful positions, has massacred bear cubs, mustangs, endangered whales, opened the Atlantic coast to drilling, eviscerated fracking regulations

27 Of Many Reasons T...

The Trump nominee to head the Department of the Interior Ryan Zinke was approved by Republican senators. There are countless reasons to impeach Zinke. Please call your senators and representatives at 202 224 3121.

1. Zinke coordinated the passing of a bill which made it

legal for stalking hunters to murder bear cubs in their dens. Every GOP senator but ailing Izakson voted for it. Not a single Democrat or Independent did.

2. Zinke is working to have offshore drilling off of every Atlantic state. To accommodate Trump's Mar A Lago and executionergovernor Rick Scott's tourism business he exempted Floridaand is being sued by some other states. All marine mammals, reptiles, fishes, coral are endangerd by this.

3. The slaughter of 90,000 wild mustangs and their roundup by helicopters has gone ahead despite objection by 80% of the public.

4. Zinke is an avid hunter and like Roy Moore likes to travel a lot on the back of a horse. Less than 5% of the country are hunters, some for meat, others for trophies. An examination of serial killers in our country reveals that over 90% of them were taught to kill in hunting, lab research on animals, slaughterhouses, or war. Dept of Interior press releases indicate he wants to extend hunting. it follows that if he is successful there will be more psychopaths.

5. In bringing hunting for the first time into our national park

sanctuaries and helped by the congressional (blood)sportsmen's caucus, (something Senator Rob Portman tried to do in the Bush administration) he is terrorizing animals through stalking hunters,

and endangering the lives of all those who live near the park or work in it, to endanger visitors to the park.

6. Zinke is trying to end federal protection of the giant redwoods called sequoia, massive sentient pillars several millennia old, habitat for many animals.

7. Zinke is working to eviscerate NEPA in order to remove public power from his plans to give oil, deforested timber, minerals and ranchers federal lands at pennies on the dollar.

8. Zinke claims to want to prevent forest fires, but he is raising prices for entrance to national parks while reducing the costs of ranchers' grazing which deforests lands removing raininvoking trees

9. Wilderness Watch and others sue Zinke over plans to build a road in Izembek which was designated by law as wilderness.

10. Zinke rolled back hydraulic fracking regulations, and in

so doing endangered all people, animals, birds, fishes

and reptiles through poisoning the watershed and causing

earthquakes (Pruitt's OK has had 5000. Mike DeWine's OH has had over 1000.)

11. Zinke in violation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples,

of which the US was a signatory, has transferred out of more powerful positions

at DOI all employees with any tribal links, as he continues 400 years of violation of Native Americans by Caucasians.

12. Zinke insists a special flag be flown whenever he is in his office.

13. Zinke called Senators Murkowski and Sullivan to subtly threaten them, telling MurkowskiTrump wasn't happy that she'd voted against his truncation of health care vote

and threatening both to block energy projects in Alaska.

14. Zinke has acted on his announced plan to sell the lands of the people of the US to the highest bidders.

15. His excess travels including flights on military planes at 25,000 dollars per hour are being investigated.

16. His wife's use of tax supported planes is also being investigated.

17. Zinke has settled a lawsuit over his 00 a month home in DC

18. Ever since the Teapot Dome scandal of 1921 to 1923, the oil industry has stolen the oil of public lands at ridiculously low prices. They are continuing to do so, ripping off the public for billions of dollars.. Zinke has violated transparency rules by meeting with them in secret (as Pruitt has done at the EPA paying ,000 for a soundproof area in which to speak on the phone.)

19 Zinke's office doors cost ,000 and were fixed at a cost of 9,000

20. Zinke and Sessions think California has no right to come before corporations in purchasing federal lands

21. As the Bueau of Land Management leases pieces of public land for drilling, mining, tree deforestation, cattle grazing etc.

Zinke has eliminated the public comment period before these leases are granted.

22. Zinke's role in creating more disaster for Puerto Rico lack of electricity by pushing Whitefish, is investigated.

23. Zinke violation of the Hatch Act in giving a speech to a team owned by one of Zinke's

contributors and his use of a chartered jet.

24. Zinke in a tweet asks what he should name the stuffed murdered bear he stands next to.

25. Trump and Zinke wildlife 'protection' board stuffed with trophy hunters

26. The Center For Biological Diversity has sued stating that Zinke has unlawfully withheld public records

27. Environmental, Tribal Groups Joined To Sue Over BLM’s Stay of NatGas Venting/Flaring Rules, yet another favor of Trump Zinke Pruitt to petroplutocrats.

Environmental, Tribal Groups Joined To Sue Over BLM’s Stay of NatGas Venting/Flaring Rules

http://www.naturalgasintel.com/articles/111052-environmental-tribal-groups-sue-over-blms-stay-of-natgas-ventingflaring-rules



DOI spokesperson testimony before Congress:

“Let’s say you have a trout and a salmon in the same stream. It happens all the time. Upstream you have a dam, downstream you use it for irrigation, and that stream passes by a Forest Service holding,” Zinke said. “So this is how we manage it. The salmon are actually managed by the Department of Commerce through [the National Marine Fisheries Service]. The trout is managed by me through [the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service]. Upstream, water temperature and flows is generally the Army Corps of Engineers, unless it’s a hydro plant and then it’s Bureau of Reclamation ...”

'We are very aware that offshore drilling could lead to catastrophe' said Ryan Zinke.

Nevertheless he went ahead with drilling offshore of every US state except Florida.

Zinke calls himself a Theodore Roosevelt Republican. There is ways in which he is. Like Roosevelt he loves killing mammals. Roosevelt killed over 800 bears but is known for the 1 cub he made an orphan and saved. But Roosevelt wanted to preserve wilderness for all while Zinke wants it deforested, drilled, mined,

with trophy hunters violating our national parks.
