Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, August 13, 2019

In a move that critics say will hurt plants, animals and other species as they face mounting threats, the Trump administration is making major changes to how the Endangered Species Act is implemented. The U.S. Department of Interior on Monday announced a suite of long-anticipated revisions to the nation's premier wildlife conservation law, which is credited with bringing back the bald eagle and grizzly bears, among other species.

Trump said he was "not a fan" of the bald eagle, Jeffrey E, and had a "falling out" with him.

This man is mentally ill. There is no valid argument for this, it is just mean spirited, in your face, evil. America needs to get rid of Trump, he is truly an evil man determined to bring harm to America. Russian plant? I used to think that was just a conspiracy theory.

"The changes will apply only to future listing decisions."

Anything that gives more power to corporate interests is bad for the people at large.

Similar to what avigdore said, its mostly only bad for future people. Trump and his lapdogs will all be dead (of old age thoughts and prayers) before the full scope of the consequences are realized, so who cares!

The Grand Old Pollution party is at it again. Kick the can down the road so the young ones have to deal with it. No wonder this younger generation thinks we're full of ----. They have to clean it up.

Spoken just like you two took a lot from the El Paso shooter's manifesto.

"The inconvenient truth is that our leaders, both Democrat AND Republican, have been failing us for decades. They are either complacent or involved in one of the biggest betrayals of the American public in our history. The takeover of the United States government by unchecked corporations."
"The decimation of the environment is creating a massive burden for future generations."
"Corporations are heaing [sic] the destruction of our environment by shamelessly over harvesting resources"
"Fresh water is being polluted from farming and oil drilling operations."
"Consumer culture is creating thousands of tons of unnecessary plastic waste and electronic waste, and recycling to help slow this down is almost non-existent."

You people truly are alarmists.

You say Trump endangers species. The article says: which is credited with bringing back the bald eagle and grizzly bears, among other species.

But then in one line, which I know NPR was probably forced to make it says:

The changes will apply only to future listing decisions..

So the Eagle, bears, red headed woodpecker and fish are still protected, but you idiots are sounding some type of alarm. Trump cant do anything without you taking him to court. This is what the American people put him in office to do and he is doing it. You liberals need to just let him do what he does and if you get into office, then put in more restrictions if that's what you want to do.

Just because he was deranged doesn't mean he's wrong. Let's try to conserve, but that doesn't mean targeting Mexicans.

You and the rest of the deplorables are NOT the "American people".

You're faux Chreestians who's only concern is yourselves.

""We don't look to pick a fight every time this administration decides to take an action. But we challenge these actions by this administration because it is necessary.""

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA

That's EXACTLY what both sides do. Calling it out and saying you aren't doing it but having actions that directly contradict what you say just proves your guilt.

There's one major difference.

We do it to prevent your destructive ideology from ruining our only world.

You do it to prevent anything good from happening because your sick world view requires it.

It's not lost on us that the right, particularly the "religious" right, are millstones around humanity's neck who refuse to practice what they preach.

Well, you and those damn liberals surely arent the "American people" either.

You're faux Chreestians who's only concern is yourselves.

And you faux socialists only concern is greater control over the people and only one rich entity, the government.

Fox news poisoned your brain. Change the channel. You morons now root against saving the planet and for destroying species. Look at yourself.

Dems aren't the ones who keep having to find new ways to cheat in elections to keep hold on to power.

Based on the last election we at least represent a greater proportion of the people.

And you faux socialists only concern is greater control over the people and only one rich entity, the government.

Two things, I see you didn't bother correcting the faux Christian part. More progress.

Second, I see you're taking Jesus' teachings to heart.

Give a man a strawman and he'll argue for a post. Teach a man to create his own strawmen and he'll argue for his entire life.

That might mean something if we were a national democracy, but we arent.
