Their latest sell-out, in alliance with other NGO sell-outs Trout Unlimited, The Nature Conservancy, Greater Yellowstone Coalition among others, is a deal with the devil — the industrial sheep business in Southwest Montana.
John Helle’s private, domestic sheep graze in prime grizzly bear, bighorn sheep (roadless, public land) habitat for 27 cents per head per month.
I have nothing against sheep, except when there are too many of them in one place, for too long. Ever been to the Middle East? Greedy men in the sheep and goat business have destroyed continents.
The story of conservationists and corporate capitalists working in harmony, side by side, whatever the industry, is a false one dependent on paid agents posing as people with a passion for nature. Their passion is for status, money and power. It’s that simple. One way to always tell the fake from the real deal is to look at the size of the budget and number of employees. Over $1 million annually pretty much guarantees nothing will get done for the land, water or wildlife. The other way to tell the shit from shinola is the media coverage. Lots of favorable, smarmy, human interest stories is a dead giveaway you’re being duped.
Mark and I have both been duped by MWA and similar ilk. If this little diatribe prevents one more honest conservation-minded person from being taken in and disappointed, it’s well worth the ink.
Commercialization of earth’s lifeforms is expanding into new territory. Emotion, not facts or evidence, is the primary organizing tool of the corporate controllers behind the scenes. Children will “lead.” Unsuspecting newcomers to the “movement” are the targets/marks. Profit is the goal. Meet the “Extinction Movement” before it is too big to recognize for what it is.
Extinction Rebellion Training, or How to Control Radical Resistance from the ‘Obstructive Left,” May 6, 2019, by Cory Morningstar is recommended reading for anyone trying to make sense of the MSM “extinction” hype flooding the airwaves and social media. Like all high-profile campaigns, most of us are only (spoon fed) observing the “tip of the iceberg.”
If Assange is a journalist/publisher, not a “spy,” then all pretense of democracy/republic is exposed. State government, in other words, is a hoax. Free speech is dead. Government “for the people” is dead. No “freemen.”
Beneath my post about the Smothers Brothers the first comment to arrive came from S. Volpetti, and in it he linked us to this site. It is a set of books that traces the descendants of the original settlers dispatched by the Crowns of various European states, primarily Great Britain. These were not prisoners, and while Britain may have wanted to dispatch its religious nuts to a faraway post, it by no means did so with the idea that such filberts would be put in charge. (We are told that Australia was a prison colony, but the inmates did not run that asylum.)
I have no way of knowing what caused this suspension, or who may be responsible. Suffice it to say that all alternative media is being systematically culled. I suppose this is part and parcel of the culling of the human population of “useless eaters” (goyim) that have outlived, or outnumbered, their usefulness to the oligarch-“gods” who ultimately make most of these life-and-death decisions.
I know going into this piece that not too many readers are going to be familiar with the two men in this photograph, Tom and Dick Smothers. This goes way back in time to a television series that was cancelled in early 1969, months before the Manson/Tate hoax slammed the door on the anti-Vietnam War movement of that era. I enjoyed the boys, even as I recognized the only true comedic chops belonged to “Tommy” on the left. Dick on the right was a man with a light sprinkling of talent, a bass player who could sing, but not very well. He was used as Tommy’s straight man. He also, later in his career, took a shot at acting. He was not very good at that either.
