Obama places ammo ban on Federal lands on last day.

Just a little something as Obama walks out the door. Thought that we were done with this nonsense from this administration, but should have figured one more kick.

The Washington Beacon reports:

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe, an Obama appointee, ordered a new ammunition ban for certain federal lands on Thursday–his last full day in office.

The ban, which took effect immediately, eliminates the use of lead-based ammunition on federal lands like national parks and wildlife refuges, as well as any other land administered by the Fish and Wildlife Service. The ban is expected to have a major impact on much of the hunting that takes place on federal lands across the United States as lead-based ammunition is widely legal and used throughout the country.

Ashe said the order was necessary to protect wildlife from exposure to lead.

Gun rights activists expressed outrage at the last-minute move, labeling it political. The National Shooting Sports Foundation called for the agency’s next director to immediately rescind the order.

Let us go down a bit of memory lane and what our government is doing. Earlier post:

Fauxahontas Warren puts on her feathers and displays disgraceful behavior

What a nasty human being. She should be easy to pick off in 2020 because its clear she is going to run against the Trumpster. Here tis:

Elizabeth Warren put on a display of nastiness that we should all remember for the remainder of her career, as she embarks on future political campaigns and endeavors. She’ just as capable of the phony, smiley face political pandering as the next guy, but this kind of mean-spirited vicious attack is noteworthy. Maybe the neighbor’s dog hiked his leg on her totem pole this morning, that’s not Betsy Devos’ fault.

As she began the hostile grilling of the nominee for Secretary of Education, the objectives were clear. Demean the nominee, embarrass the nominee, label the nominee as unfit and along the way, at every possible juncture, discredit the President-elect.

In what is a clear demonstration of the smallness of Elizabeth Warren, after the hearings she attempts to shake her attackers hand and Warren refuses, instead holding her hand up in a sort of half wave half “how” form that may have originated back when she used to be an Indian, when she had darker skin, wore feathers and had principles and decency. Devos seems to be in disbelief at the lack of decorum she was just shown, glancing behind her to see if anyone else caught the snub. Thankfully, C-Span did.

Fauxahontas refuses to shake her hand.

School battle: Mascot team name ‘Stallions’ too sexist

 EBL brings us this story:

New Sport Team Mascot Battle: The name ‘Stallions’ is too sexist…

 Daily Gator, Weasel Zippers and Breitbart noted this story: apparently the name Stallions is too sexist for a sport team mascot name…in Kentucky.  Last time I checked they had a lot of stallions in Kentucky.
A school district in Kentucky has canceled the school’s “Stallions” mascot after a petition from the community argued that the mascot was “inappropriate and sexist.”

Caulk declared that the students of Frederick Douglass High School will have the opportunity to choose their mascot from a slate of horse-themed options:

“Moving forward, we will keep the Keeneland green and orange colors and horse image in the school logo to pay homage to Lexington’s rich history in the horse industry, but we will allow the incoming students of Frederick Douglass High School to choose their mascot,” Superintendent Caulk said in a statement late Tuesday. “We’ve already received suggestions of Thoroughbreds or Racers as possible alternatives to Stallions and we will solicit additional ideas from our students before they choose a horse-themed mascot grounded in the land’s equestrian heritage.”

While the decision reeks of sexism, the word stallion itself is not sexist at all. Rather, I think they mean the name Stallions is too male.

Then there is always the cow.

 
Hannah Simpson, of Southland, New Zealand, rides a 7-year-old dairy cow most days. It started when her parents said she wasn’t allowed to have a horse, the then-11-year-old got creative. Now she and Lilac race across fields and master jumps, as documented on Simpson’s Instagram page. Simpson, who works at a dairy farm, says she’s tried to ride other cows but has only had one other that could jump. While Simpson admits she was a particularly adventurous kid when she started, she wouldn’t necessarily advise other people to try riding cows.

Food Stamp recipients can order from Amazon, other online retailers

Here we go, another blast from Obama as he heads out the door. The already bloated corrupt Food-Stamp plan moves on to even more absurdity. I’ll throw in a flash back post to show how hard Obama has worked to bankrupt the USA.

Food-stamp recipients can use their taxpayer-funded benefit to order online from retailers like Amazon under a new Obama administration initiative that aims to facilitate the shopping experience for rural and urban residents. It marks the latest of many costly experiments by the administration to expand the fraud-infested program, which has seen a record-high number of beneficiaries under President Obama. To eliminate the welfare stigma, the administration renamed food stamps Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the rolls swelled to an astounding 46.5 million in 2016. This cost American taxpayers and eye-popping $70 billion, according to government figures.

food-stamps-2It’s the last thing that an out-of-control government program, long plagued with fraud corruption, needs. Under the Obama expansion SNAP has suffered a multitude of serious problems. Back in 2012 a federal investigation uncovered evidence that food-stamp recipients were using the benefit to buy drugs, weapons and other contraband from unscrupulous vendors. A year later Judicial Watch broke a story, based on testimony and other evidence provided by a whistleblower, about the U.S. government knowingly giving illegal immigrants food stamps for decades. That was followed by another disturbing scheme in which SNAP benefits were being sold online using social media such as Facebook, Twitter and ecommerce websites like Craigslist and eBay.

FLASHBACK! Recall Obama minions held dozens of meetings on food stamps with Mexico 

The Obama administration met with Mexican officials and held other events to discuss enrollment in food stamps and similar programs roughly 30 times since President Obama took office, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack revealed in a recent letter to Congress.

The initiative is one of several the agency has “to promote awareness of nutrition assistance among those who need benefits and meet all program requirements under current law,” Vilsack told Sessions in the 24-page letter, dated Sept. 12.

They were among 151 documented meetings and events held since 2004, when the United States and Mexico first started partnering on food-stamp awareness. That partnership, though, has raised alarm with Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who is concerned the collaboration amounts to a vehicle for the USDA to pressure people onto the food-stamp rolls — in this case, noncitizen immigrants from Mexico.

Columbia University students support female genital mutilation

We discover how misinformed the Liberal bulwark of our elitist institutions are.The next generation of Progressives being groomed at our colleges are clueless or are willing to sacrifice the individual sexual pleasure of women on the altar of political correctness. They have no idea that this is a Muslim practice? Apparently not. They think Planned Parenthood should support this practice as well. Add this fact that the American Academy of Pediatrics supported a version of this practice by Pediatricians until there was such an outcry about it.

The human rights advocacy group the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) unveiled an alarming new video, filmed at Columbia University, showing that at Columbia University, an Ivy League school and one of the nation’s foremost centers of higher learning, most students are willing to condone female genital mutilation.

Out of the 20 students who were asked about the procedure, only one student rejected the idea of the organization performing the procedure. The rest of the students expressed support for the hypothetical idea, with one going so far as to emphasize that he supported the idea regardless of the female’s age.

EQUALITY NOW CALLS ON American Academy of Pediatrics TO REVOKE ELEMENTS OF ITS 2010 POLICY STATEMENT THAT ENDORSES PEDIATRICIANS’ “NICKING” OF GIRLS’ GENITALIA

NEW YORK, May 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — International human rights organization Equality Now is stunned by a new policy statement issued by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), which essentially promotes female genital mutilation (FGM) and advocates for “federal and state laws [to] enable pediatricians to reach out to families by offering a ‘ritual nick’,” such as pricking or minor incisions of girls’ clitorises. The Policy Statement “Ritual Genital Cutting of Female Minors“, issued by the AAP on April 26, 2010, is a significant set-back to the Academy’s own prior statements on the issue of FGM and is antithetical to decades of noteworthy advancement across Africa and around the world in combating this human rights violation against women and girls.

Lawmakers say ‘halt’ to sale of Chicago Stock Exchange to China

Of course this is done over the holidays with an abbreviated comment period. We gave Russia our Uranium why not give China access to manipulating our financial markets. The unthinkable is thinkable these days. The Obama regime remains without comment. Here tis:

stockLawmakers are demanding a longer review of a Chinese firm’s deal to purchase the Chicago Stock Exchange, voicing concerns over the sale’s impact on U.S. national security and the financial security of the American marketplace.

“As the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) conducts its process to review this transaction, we similarly urge you to consider the negative impacts Chinese state-affiliated ownership of the Chicago Exchange will have on national security and the financial security of the American marketplace,” the lawmakers wrote.

Earlier this month, the Chicago Stock Exchange announced that CFIUS found “no unresolved national security concerns” regarding the deal. The sale now only faces approval by the SEC. The Treasury Department has declined to comment on the development.

The lawmakers argued Thursday that the deal would offer the firm the ability to “manipulate” the $22 trillion U.S. equity marketplace.

“The integrity of, and confidence in America’s financial markets is a bedrock component of our nation’s security,” they wrote. “This transaction raises serious questions that go well beyond the limited scope of review that has already taken place. Allowing an entity such as CCEG to acquire one of our nation’s exchanges—with the access, information, and opportunities that exist to undermine U.S. interests—is a very serious matter.”

“Given these concerns, we urge you to consider rejecting this transaction,” the lawmakers wrote.

DHS Hires CAIR to Train French Officials

If we need a reason to be thankful that we can end riding the third rail with the election of Trump, here it is. Let us hope that the first order of business is ridding ourselves of these infiltrators who do not have the best intentions of our Country in mind. The FBI has warned us time and again about CAIR, but our Muslim loving President could care less. Here tis:

The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) facilitated a training session last week for a French police delegation, in conjunction with the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)’s Community Engagement Office in Tampa, the Investigative Project on Terrorism has confirmed with DHS officials and other agencies.

This session stands in contrast with the FBI’s 2009 policy not to engage with CAIR outside of criminal investigations due to questions about the Hamas ties of its top executives. An FBI official wrote that “until we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS, the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner.” That FBI policy toward CAIR remains in effect, and was publicly reaffirmed in 2013.

Snip….

CAIR officials repeatedly urge Muslim Americans not to cooperate with the FBI.

DHS and the State Department participated in this CAIR training of French officials despite the well-documented record of CAIR’s ties to terrorists. Internal Muslim Brotherhood records obtained by the FBI place CAIR and its founders at the core of a Brotherhood-created Hamas support network in the United States known as the Palestine Committee.

CAIR’s Powerful Ties

CAIR officials enjoyed close relations with the Obama administration despite the FBI’s evidence linking it to the Muslim Brotherhood and to Hamas. DHS/State Department coordination with CAIR is nothing new. The State Department sent CAIR officials abroad to conduct foreign outreach.

DHS could have turned to any number of organizations and people to work with the French delegation. Choosing an Islamist group whose ties to a terrorist group rendered it persona non grata with the FBI is either a sign of dangerous incompetence or institutional arrogance.
