The number of Southern Resident Orca whales has hit its lowest point in 30 years thanks to the disappearance of the species’ food source and plans to build an oil pipeline in the ocean. We cannot risk the possibility of these whales dying out completely within just a few short years. Sign this petition to demand stronger protection and conservation efforts to save this species.
Ocean and lake conservation is out. Offshore drilling and corporate greed are in. The Trump Administration just took a hatchet to initiatives shielding marine life and environments. Demand an end to reckless policies that are slowly killing the environment.

Scott Pruitt is facing 13 federal inquiries into his spending and management practices as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.
The subjects of the investigations include Mr. Pruitt’s first-class travel expenses, the installation of a $43,000 soundproof phone booth in his office, and his rental of a $50-a-night condo from the wife of a lobbyist with business before the agency. The negative headlines have continued well into Mr. Pruitt’s second year on the job, though he continues to enjoy the support of President Trump.
Here is a guide to Mr. Pruitt’s actions that are under investigation. (Because some investigations cover several topics, the numbers listed here add up to more than 13.)
The $50-a-Night Condo
The E.P.A. has acknowledged that Mr. Pruitt paid $50 per night last year to live in a Washington condo co-owned by the wife…

The Alternative or Alt Right are a new political force that came to maturity with the 2016 election of President Trump. They differ from traditional Conservatives in their vocal American nationalism and in their refusal to be passive wimps.
By that definition, the protesters at The Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, VA on Tuesday, June 26, are members of the Alt-Right.
On the night of June 23, Red Hen’s co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson booted out White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and her in-laws simply because Sanders works for President Trump.
Among the dozens of protesters yesterday were a sprinkling of Leftists who came to support The Red Hen, i.e., who approve of kicking out a woman simply because she works for a Republican President. One of them is this witchy looking woman.
There was only one arrest at the protest —…

Original article and banner image (“Skye: Nadine Dreyer”) courtesy of Daily Maverick
By Judy Malone, writing on behalf of Tourists Against Trophy Hunting, 28 June 2018
Trophy hunting is not about science, rights or traditions, or about personal choices. It is about right and wrong, good and evil. The self-evident truth is that killing for pleasure and profit is morally wrong.
People around the world are following the search for Skye, the pride male lion who disappeared after a 7 June hunt. There was no such mystery after the killing of Cecil – three years ago next week – in Zimbabwe. We knew the details and identities of those involved immediately, and international headlines appeared within 24 hours. But the hunt industry has since closed ranks, and as journalists beat the bush for information, those who have the answers are withholding them.

Judge throws out climate-change lawsuits against big oil companies
“All of us have benefited,” Alsup wrote. “Having reaped the benefit of that historic progress, would it really be fair to now ignore our own responsibility in the use of fossil fuels and place the blame for global warming on those who supplied what we demanded?”
The judge concluded in his 16-page ruling that the issue is best addressed by the federal government’s legislative and executive branches. The Trump administration made that argument in urging the judge to toss the suits, even while the administration has opposed efforts worldwide to fight climate change.
On the night of June 23, Stephanie Wilkinson, co-owner of The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, VA, kicked out White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and her in-laws simply because Sanders works for President Trump. The rabid Wilkinson even pursued and harassed the in-laws when they went to a restaurant across the street.
Outraged by Wilkinson’s behavior, AltMedia netizens went to work to dig up information. Four especially sensational claims are made:
- That Red Hen restaurant recently was cited by the health department for a number of violations, including a rat infestation.
- That the restaurant’s silent partner is a registered sex offender.
- That Stephanie Wilkinson is a pedophile.
- That Stephanie Wilkinson has HIV.
I spent hours yesterday to verify those claims. This is what I found.

( Washington Examiner ) The division in the United States that has escalated into the organized harassment of presidential aides has six in 10 worried about the violence from anti-Trump advocates and nearly a third fearing it will end in civil war.
The latest survey from Rasmussen Reports found that 59 percent of all voters “are concerned that those opposed to President Trump’s policies will resort to violence.”
And, added Rasmussen, 31 percent believe “it’s likely that the United States will experience a second civil war sometime in the next five years.”

“USDA’s Wildlife Services should have more carefully considered its proposed predator-killing activities’ impacts on the environment…”
BOISE, Idaho— In a powerful rebuke, a federal judge ruled U.S. agency that kills thousands of animals a year in Idaho failed to adequately analyze the environmental risks of shooting, trapping and poisoning native wildlife like mountain lions, coyotes and foxes.
The court’s ruling, issued late Friday, holds that USDA’s Wildlife Services should have more carefully considered its proposed predator-killing activities’ impacts on the environment. The judge held the agency ignored science showing that killing predators does not decrease conflicts with livestock. The court ruled controversial killing warrants a much more thorough analysis.
“Wildlife Services will now have to fairly evaluate how killing thousands of coyotes in southern Idaho each year affects the environment,” said Talasi Brooks, a staff attorney for Advocates for the West, who represented the…

A newly-released photo of a jaguar pelt is widely believed to be that of Yo’oko, a jaguar who had previously been seen in the United States. This skull did not belong to Yo’oko. Image courtesy of Richard Mahler.
This is not the sort of story I like to share. Since 1996, seven male jaguars (Panthera onca) have been confirmed in the United States. This provided some hope that the species, which once ranged widely throughout the southwestern US, might eventually recolonize parts of their former range. Unfortunately, one of those jaguars has been killed.
The Northern Jaguar Project (NJP) recently sent a photo of a jaguar pelt to the Arizona Daily Star. The NJP’s biologists, six members of the Arizona Game and Fish Department, and a retired US Fish and Wildlife biologist have all looked at the picture. They have concluded that the spot pattern matches…

On Friday night, June 23, 2018, The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, VA, became infamous when its co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson — who is also the director of Main Street Lexington, a civic organization that promotes the city’s businesses — booted out White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who was accompanied by her in-laws.
Wilkinson claims that her restaurant employees objected to Sanders’ presence because of President Trump’s no-transgenders-in-the-US-military policy and his
“immigration policy” determination to actually implement federal laws on illegal border-crossing.
Wilkinson, 55, who has a Ph.D. in European and American Religious History from the University of Virginia and is reputed to be a cousin of snake-tongue Meryl Streep, even followed Sanders’ in-laws to a restaurant across the street, and organized a protest outside the restaurant while the in-laws were dining. The irony is that Sanders’ in-laws are Democrats.

“This was a horrific loss of a Mexican gray wolf and the perpetrator deserves far more than a slap on the hand,”
Mexican gray wolf mp1385 was born in the wild in 2014 and weighed 25 pounds on Sept. 7 of that year. At that time, he was radio collared, vaccinated and released in good health, according to a wolf capture data sheet. The wolf was found dead in February 2015 in Gila National Forest. Courtesy U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
A Mexican gray wolf identified as mp1385 had a lot working against him.
As a threatened species, the nearly year-old male pup faced the same issues that have long challenged Mexican gray wolves in a decades-old reintroduction program in southwestern New Mexico and southeastern Arizona: an uncertainty over food, problems associated with inbreeding, the occasional car accident, poaching.

- “Regardless of the unscrupulous and ill regard for human life attitude by smugglers, Border Patrol Agents work tirelessly to ensure not only the safety and security of our nation but also the safety of those who they come in contact with”
Nearly five dozen illegal immigrants who traveled from Central America to the U.S. were reportedly rescued by Border Patrol agents last week after their smugglers allegedly abandoned them in the Arizona desert during a heatwave.
Agents from the Tucson Sector of the U.S.-Mexico border responded to an area west of Lukeville, which has a Port of Entry, after someone within the group called Mexican authorities for help, the agency said in a news release.
The caller said the group of 57 people had crossed the border illegally and needed help.

Maxine Waters did not like the questioning and hit Laura’s camera more than once with her papers before she enters the elevator.

Matthew Barthel (l) killed by illegal Garcia Morales (r)
A story the agenda-driven MSM won’t report.
From Star Tribune (MN): A judge has given a four-year term to a motorist who ran a red light one winter morning while high on methamphetamine and killed a Big Lake man driving to his school district job northwest of the Twin Cities. (The illegal alien could have been sentenced for up to ten years.)
Juan Carlos Garcia Morales, 37, of Big Lake, was convicted of criminal vehicular homicide in April for the death of 33-year-old Matthew D. Barthel on Feb. 22, 2017. Sherburne County District Judge Sheridan Hawley sentenced him Monday.
With credit for time in jail since his arrest, Garcia Morales will serve just shy of two years in prison and the balance on supervised release. The sentence also calls for him to make restitution of nearly $4,000. (The illegal alien…

Judicial Watch: Maxine Waters ‘Seems to Be in Violation of House Rule;’ Ethics Complaint Filed
Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-CA) recent comments encouraging people to “push back” on President Donald Trump’s cabinet members seems to be in violation of House rule, government watchdog Judicial Watch said in a June 25 statement announcing its request for an ethics investigation.
“In encouraging individuals to create ‘crowds’ who will ‘push back’ on President Trump’s Cabinet members at private business establishments and in seemingly trying to prevent these Cabinet officials from obtaining basic necessities without fear of assault and violence, Rep. Waters seems to be violation of House rule,” Judicial Watch said.
“Rep. Maxine Waters incited violence and assault against members of President Trump’s Cabinet,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is urgent that the House ethics quickly act to hold her accountable for this…

( Fox News ) A burned animal carcass was reportedly left on the doorstep of a Department of Homeland Security staffer as tensions grow between the Trump administration and those who are protesting its “zero tolerance” immigration policy.
The acting deputy secretary of Homeland Security warned employees in a memo released Saturday that “there may be a heightened threat” against agency staffers, CBS News reported. The official said the alert came as “specific and credible threats have been levied against certain DHS employees.”
The memo, which said “thousands of employees” have had their personal information released to the public online, reportedly detailed safety precautions staffers could take amid the ongoing backlash of the treatment of illegal immigrants and their families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Always keep doors and windows locked” and “be aware of unexpected changes in and around your home,” were recommendations made to agency employees. They were also…

Over the weekend Sarah Sanders was asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant because the owner of the establishment is an avid anti-Trumper. It has also been reported that the owner of the Red Hen followed Sarah Sanders into another restaurant to continue the harassment.
Maxine Waters appeared not only to condone the actions of the restaurant owner, but called on others to harass Trump officials whenever they get the chance.
“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them! And you tell them that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere.”
That certainly can be seen as a call to violence and we have already seen the Democrats’ rhetoric lead to violence, and almost to death, on a softball field in Washington DC during…

Feminist college professor says women should hate men based on their gender … This is called “inclusiveness”
June 16, 2018 By Ethan Huff
A radical feminist man-hater who heads up Northeastern University’s“Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies” program, recently wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post that calls on all men everywhere to “step away” from pretty much every position of power in society in order to pacify the demands of feminist women like herself who hate men.
Couching her blatant sexism as “inclusivity” and “equality,” Suzanna Danuta Walters, who also teaches sociology at NU, argues that all women have an inherent right to hate all men because of the “millennia of woe” that men – all of them – have apparently inflicted upon all women since the beginning of time.
Unless a man agrees to only vote for feminist women, to not ever run for office, and to never “be…
