Trump Steps in to REVERSE Obama’s MASSIVE Federal Land Grab
National parks and monuments are a great thing. We need to have areas that are protected for Americans to enjoy for generations to come.
But when past presidents have used conservation as a smokescreen for what amounts to an all-out federal land grab, things must be rectified. President Trump is doing exactly that.
RECTIFYING THE PROBLEM
He is signing an order that returns to the people land and water that other president’s took away. These were properties that could not be used for any purpose, not even to be enjoyed as parks.
Conservation groups got to Obama, Clinton, and others to turn 500 million + acres into protected lands. These were lands owned by private citizens for generations. They were valuable lands because much of it contained oil and coal. That’s why the Democrats were so eager to get them. They don’t want that fossil fuel to be used.
Now these places are being returned to their rightful owners. The American people.
A couple of areas under close scrutiny are Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and 1.3 million-acre Bears Ears National Monument. Both had been removed from the people by Clinton and Obama respectively.
“In the eight years he’s been in office, Obama seized more than 553 million acres of land and water(roughly 865,000 square miles) and placed it under federal ownership and control – enough square mileage to cover the entire state of Texas more than three times over. In fact, the self-aggrandizing conservationist-in-chief has placed more land and coastal areas under federal control than any other president in history, shutting off millions of miles of land to energy production or human settlement, along with shifting it outside the scope of local and state jurisdictions.”
Finding energy sources and making room for communities as population grows is more important. There are ways of being stewards of what we already have without compromising the American way-of-life and property rights.
The fact is that Trump is doing more to help Americans through these actions.
