Published

on

Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke announced Jan. 9 the creation of the Hunting and Shooting Sports Conservation Council.

“Hunters and anglers are the backbone of wildlife and habitat conservation in America,” said Zinke.

“Through the purchase of duck stamps, bows, ammo, firearms, and more, sportsmen and women contribute billions of dollars to conservation,” he said.

“From my perspective, the more sportsmen we have in the woods and waters, the better our wildlife and habitat will be,” he said.

“The Council will be made up of experts that share their knowledge, experience, and recommendations on a number of policy proposals put before them, as well as helping the Departments come up with innovative ideas to improve the health of wildlife and their habitat and increase sportsmen access on public and private lands.”

The council was created to provide the Interior and Agriculture secretaries with input regarding policies pertaining to wildlife and habitat conservation, according to the Interior Department’s companion announcement.

The Council will examine ways to benefit wildlife resources; encourage partnership among the public, the sporting conservation organizations, state, tribal, territorial, and federal government; and benefit recreational hunting and recreational shooting sports, Interior said.

Zinke, a former Montana congressman and a combat veteran of the SEALs, who retired from the Navy as a commander, has set out to be the most activist Interior secretary on behalf of the sportsman and fishermen.

In less than 12 months in office, Zinke has reversed an order that would have banned lead ammo and tackle on national wildlife refuge lands, expanded hunting and fishing opportunities at 10 national wildlife refuges lands and created a “one-stop” website for all hunting and fishing opportunities on public lands.

The secretary has also directed his department’s bureau’s to open hunting and fishing on all national monument lands where legally allowed and finalized a land acquisition to make the Sabinoso Wilderness Area accessible to hunters.

Nominations to the council should be directed to: Joshua Winchell, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Wildlife Refuge System, 5275 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, VA 22041-3803; or emailed to: [email protected]

The council is expected to meet twice a year, and at such other times as designated by the secretary. Once the council is formally established it will have a two-year charter.

Joe Biden stated that he “got to the Senate 180 years ago” when delivering a scripted campaign speech from a room in his Delaware home on Saturday.

That would’ve been in 1840, when Martin Van Buren was President. There were 52 Senators at the time, and the Democratic Party controlled the chamber, with a Whig minority in opposition. Biden was talking about supporting first responders and firefighters, who would’ve existed in a vastly different capacity in the mid-19th century.

Biden did laugh a little bit after he made the error, which seems to have stemmed from faulty teleprompter instructions or Biden simply misreading the screen in front of him.

Biden’s campaign appearances have been almost entirely scripted as of late, with the Democratic Party’s elder figure even going so far as reading from a teleprompter during interviews.

It’s very sad that the Democratic Party elite and Joe Biden’s handlers have allowed this to continue. A man with an arguably severe level of cognitive decline should not be the President of a nation of 330 million people. That is not right.

However, you almost can’t blame them for binding him concisely to the words on the teleprompter. Unscripted campaign appearances have proved to be even more of a disaster, with Biden forgetting the words to the Pledge of Allegiance in a campaign speech earlier this week, for example.
