Rep. Lummis Wants to Subvert Legal Safeguards to Serve Special Interests
Last month Wyoming’s lone Representative Cynthia Lummis (R) attempted an ill planned and poorly executed effort to tack on a pro-horse slaughter amendment onto an agriculture budget bill in an attempt to appease big agriculture and ranching special interest groups. Rep. Lummis was publicly called out by her own party leadership and was forced to withdraw her amendment. She left the house floor in a flurry of righteous indignation and contempt. Concerned American citizens were in high hopes that she would crawl back under her rock and disappear but with all that is evil and serves dark masters she has returned; and now it is the American wolf that she serves up on her menu of animal destruction.
Wednesday, the pistol packing politician announced that she wants to cut a deal with the feds to hand over wolf management in Wyoming to state authorities and she publicly declared that she has, once again, inserted language in a pending appropriations bill to bar any legal challenges or review from the courts over said management of state wolves. God bless America, Cynthia, and welcome to the 16th century.
Environmental groups, animal advocates and even federal biologists have strongly opposed ending federal protection for wolves in Wyoming as the state has indicated that the reintroduced wolves would be declared predators which would allow the formerly near extinct animals to be shot on sight.
The feds have played this game with Idaho and Montana earlier this year and Lummis wants a piece of that lip-smacken, corrupt and collusive “Wolf Pie”, too.
In the statement that Lummis released on Wednesday it is glaringly clear, as always, who butters her bread and keeps her in office:
“This provision is a crucial puzzle piece to the long-awaited conclusion of the delisting of the fully-recovered gray wolf. For more than eight years, wolves in Wyoming have met or exceeded the federal government’s recovery goals, and without proper management have thrived at the expense of Wyoming’s ranchers, farmers and big game herds,” Lummis stated.
Likewise, Wyoming’s rocket scientist Governor Matt Mead agreed and said that he wants to “ensure management of wolves returns to Wyoming.” It appears that Lummis, Mead and state rep. “Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis have all been sipping from the same pitcher of tainted Kool Aid. Gitty-up Wyoming politicians, it’s time to pay off your campaign contributors.
So saddle up boys and girls, Wyoming politics is about to take us on yet another ride through mud, blood and horse poop as they reload their rifles and take aim at their own feet…because as we all know; when it comes to politics, it’s all about the money.
