The Art Of The Deal?

The Lone Cactus

Donald Trump came before the American public the other night with a deal he was proposing for Democrats to re-open the government. On the surface it says a lot…and it shows why he’s the ultimate dealmaker.

Let’s take a quick look at what he said. He wants to get $5.7 billion for the wall…or fence…or added border protection in the form of a barrier along the southern border. That’s been his line in the sand all along. He is giving over 700,000 DACA kids a three year reprieve in hopes Congress can get their problem solved in that time. He’s also giving those that moved to the United States temporarily when natural disasters hit their homeland another three years to live here without the threat of deportation.

He promised $800 million in humanitarian assistance to help those in need along the southern border…most likely those folks in the caravan from…

Hopi Tribe Urges End To US Government Shutdown; Shutdown Violates Trust Obligations Of The US Government

Mining Awareness +

Hopi Tribe Open Letter/News Release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 11, 2019
Open Letter to Arizona Congressional Leaders
Kykotsmovi, Ariz. – On behalf of the Hopi Tribe, we urge you to work with Congressional leadership to immediately end the partial government shutdown. This shutdown violates the trust obligations of the United States government to our Hopi-Tewa people.

Agencies such as the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Indian Health Service and other federal agencies that provide critical government services to our Hopi-Tewa people are caught up in unrelated politics over funding for a southern border wall. As the unnecessary and heedless shutdown drags on day to day, the well-being of our Hopi-Tewa people hangs in the balance. It is unconscionable that our people should suffer because of the failure of the Congress and the President to enact an FY2019 appropriation. America’s longstanding, legally mandated obligation, to tribal nations should be…

Trump warns Nancy Pelosi to ‘be careful’ after Democrats signal they won’t accept his shutdown offer

President Donald Trump lit into Democrats — and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in particular — in a Sunday tweetstorm in which he appeared to threaten to increase deportations of undocumented immigrants living in the United States and defended his proposal to end the partial government shutdown.

That offer, which Trump presented Saturday in a White House address, included giving about 1 million immigrants a three-year protection from deportation in exchange for $5.7 billion in funding for a wall along the U.S. southern border. Those immigrants include 700,000 who were brought to the country illegally as children and remain protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and 300,000 who fled their countries and are facing the expiration of their “temporary protected status.”

While Republicans praised the proposal and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pledged to bring it before the full Senate for a vote this week, Democrats panned the deal because it did not ensure permanent protections for those two vulnerable populations and funded a border wall they say is unnecessary. Additionally, some on the far-right complained that the deal amounted to “amnesty” for those 1 million immigrants.

Pelosi said in a Saturday statement that the proposal was “a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives.”

“It is unlikely that any one of these provisions alone would pass the House, and taken together, they are a nonstarter,” she said. “For one thing, this proposal does not include the permanent solution for the Dreamers and TPS recipients that our country needs and supports.”

Nearly 800,000 federal workers are affected by the partial government shutdown, which has gone on for nearly a month and is the longest in U.S. history, with many working without pay or furloughed from their jobs. Federal contractors, not included in that number, are losing about $200 million a day.

Trump also tweeted about his upcoming State of the Union address, which Pelosi suggested he delay or submit in writing on its originally agreed-upon date next week because of security concerns related to the partial government shutdown.

After Pelosi sent Trump a letter last week urging the delay, the president pulled the plug on a military plane that was set to take her and other members of Congress to visit troops in Afghanistan. Trump said lawmakers should remain in Washington in order to negotiate an end to the government shutdown.

On Sunday morning, Trump wrote, “Nancy, I am still thinking about the State of the Union speech, there are so many options — including doing it as per your written offer (made during the Shutdown, security is no problem), and my written acceptance. While a contract is a contract, I’ll get back to you soon!”

Sign Petition: This Man Found and Injured Fox and Stomped on Its Head Until it Died

by: Care2 Team
recipient: SEPRONA

67,343 SUPPORTERS – 70,000 GOAL

A Spanish hunter is at the center of a worldwide search after video of his despicable behavior came to light.

The video is short, but images from the two-minute clip will likely stay with you for a lifetime. In it, the hunter dressed in outdoor gear and holding his gun comes upon an injured fox hidden in the underbrush. He then grabs the fox — which is missing one of its hind legs — and flings it by the tail into the air. The poor creature goes hurling head over tail across the field before it comes to the ground with a thud.

But that isn’t the end of it.

He then bludgeons it with his gun and stomps on its head trying to crush its skull. When that doesn’t work he grinds the heel of his boot, trying to break its neck or crush its windpipe. No one knows at which point the fox actually died but what is for sure, is that the death it experienced was cruel, heartless and unnecessary. To make matters worse, the poor excuse for a human leaves the dead fox there which suggests that he killed it for no other reason but “fun.”

His actions were so repulsive that even the Royal Spanish Hunting Federation (RFEC) is asking for this man to be punished.

This individual must be found, Spanish authorities must take his vile behavior seriously and prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law. This person should not be allowed any contact with animals and he definitely should not have a gun.

Please sign the petition and tell Spain’s nature protection agency (SEPRONA) to take this crime seriously, find the perpetrator and bring him to justice.more

Sign Petition: Cinder The Bear Survived Wildfire Burns Only To Be Shot By Hunter

thepetitionsite.com
by: Care2 Team
recipient: Washington Officials

87,977 SUPPORTERS – 90,000 GOAL

Cinder was a 30 lb young black bear in Washington state. In 2014, she miraculously survived severe wildfire burns and won the heart of us humans. Tragically, she was shot and killed almost immediately upon being released back into the wild.

Sign the petition to demand justice for Cinder!

It’s illegal to kill a black bear in Washington state unless you have a license and it’s open season. Whoever killed her probably did not have that because they just left her body there. If a bear gets hurt or killed in self defense, the killer is supposed to notify the authorities. But Cinder’s body was just left to rot instead.

Scientists had hoped her collar had just stopped working because she was hibernating for the winter. That’s why they were so dismayed when they found her skeleton and realized it was because she and her collar had been shot.

Cinder lived through a horrible tragedy and healed, just to be shot by a selfish hunter and left to rot.

It’s heartbreaking that Cinder survived and then died so quickly after being able to return to her home. Please help us honor sweet Cinder by demanding that authorities find Cinder’s killer and hold them accountable!

Petition: Stop Forcing Horses To Run Through Fires – It’s Terrifying And Cruel | Take Action @ The Animal Rescue Site

theanimalrescuesite.greatergood.com
Stop Forcing Horses To Run Through Fires – It’s Terrifying And Cruel | Take Action @ The Animal Rescue Site
Sponsor: The Animal Rescue Site

No ritual or celebration is worth harming innocent horses with a senseless trial by fire.

Las Luminarias is an annual festival in San Bartolome de Pinares, Spain. During the nighttime event, multiple huge bonfires are lit throughout the town. The smoke is thick and engulfing, and the embers naturally spark and sail into the air. Participants douse their horses with water, and then ride them directly through the raging flames of multiple bonfires.

Ironically, the tradition is supposed to purify the horse for the coming year, preventing illness or injury. But the flying embers singe fur and skin[1], fear and pain could easily cause a horse to misstep and come to harm, and inhaling the heavy smoke can damage their lungs.

Though the mayor of San Bartolome claims that the horses “don’t suffer anything at all,” their fear is obvious from the festival photographs[1]. Even if the horses make it through the festival physically unscathed, they experience intense terror when forced to jump through the flames. That terror is ignored as the rider steers the horse to the next fire[2].

Forcing a frightened animal to leap through the flames to “protect” them for the year is a ridiculous superstition and a cruel tradition. Tell the mayor of San Bartolome to end the use of real bonfires during Las Luminarias. If they must continue this tradition, stop terrorizing the horses and use symbolic fire instead.

Sign now to protect the health and welfare of innocent horses!

To: Mayor Maria Jesus Martin Gomez:

The longstanding tradition of Las Luminarias is marred by the cruelty of riding horses through the bonfires lit throughout town. Horses are frightened by fire, and forcing them to leap through the flames is clear animal abuse.

These horses experience psychological trauma directly caused by forcing them to leap through raging bonfires. Las Luminarias needs to be changed to reflect modern times. A cruelty-free festival could easily be accomplished by simply using symbolic fire that doesn’t frighten and singe the horses. I understand the festival has taken place for 500 years, but the world has progressed, and so should the town.

Forcing a horse who is fearful of fire to leap through it for a festival, and exposing their lungs to smoke inhalation and their skin to burns from flying embers, is unacceptable. No tradition is worth harming a fellow creature. Please make the right decision and protect the welfare of the horses in your town.

Your swift action is appreciated!

Sincerely,
Signatures:

Petition:Prison for life, without bail or death penalty, against Gerardo Herrera alias Junior

Prison for life, without bail or death penalty, against Gerardo Herrera alias Junior

Gerardo Herrera alias Junior lives in NAPOLEÓN GÓMEZ SADA, COLONIA SUTERM, is CFE worker José López Portillo. Hopefully some animalist association and animal advocates who want to mobilize to do justice and act legally . #Piedras Negras #Recompensa #Red

They offer $ 60,000 to find Gerardo Herrera, responsible for killing little dogs in the Suterm colony. It is said that he has escaped to North America, they are looking for him there, and we need him to bring him to be judged.

If the authorities do not act quickly against this person it will end in tragedy, as some people are offering a reward for torturing and killing the Junior. Neither the former Mayor Sonia Villarreal, nor her parents will be able to do anything to avoid any type of attempt against the life of an individual.

Let him go to jail, which is where he should be and where he should spend his whole life.

Sign Petition: Say NO to bullfighting in Marbella, Spain

thepetitionsite.org

by: Diana Almedal
recipient: Marbella Mayor, Spain

1,034 SUPPORTERS in Spain

According to local press, the bloody, torturous sport of bullfighting could return to Marbella despite being banned three years ago.

The town hall has announced it is setting aside just over €1 million for the refurbishment of the Plaza de Toros with the goal of “making it safe, practicable and operational for its intended use”.

The project has been put out to tender, with companies having until December 30, 2018 to declare their interest.

Please sign this petition to stop the plans of bringing this unfashionable and very shameful blood sport back to Marbella.

The rest of the EU is already viewing Spain as a country with an old-fashioned and very violent culture when it comes to animal rights. People in the whole world are more and more taking a stand, deciding not to travel to Spain because of this. These plans would make it even worse.

Torturing these beautiful, proud animals is certainly not worth 1 million euro and bringing back bullfighting to Marbella would not only be a huge step back regarding animal rights. It would also be a very disgraceful, violent and non-equal contribution to our world.

We don’t want bullfighting or any other blood sports in beautiful Marbella. It’s finally gone and we don’t want it back.
