Elizabeth Warren has some big government plans for public lands

I realize that Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is currently polling somewhere in low to middle single digits for a Democratic nomination, but she’s still one of a “big names” being considered so it’s worth keeping an eye on what she’s up to. While oar c&idates are busying flogging a Medicare for All line or Free Stuff For All My Friends, Warren is trying to generate some headlines on a different topic. She’d like to talk to you about public l&s & how we use (or don’t use) am. & boy howdy, does she have some big plans in store if she’s elected. Or I should more accurately say, Big Government plans. She explains am at Medium.

But today, those [public] l&s are under threat. a Trump administration is busy selling off our public l&s to a oil, gas & coal industries for pennies on a dollar — exp&ing fossil fuel extraction that destroys pristine sites across a country while pouring an accelerant on our climate crisis.

It doesn’t have to be this way. We must not allow corporations to pillage our public l&s & leave taxpayers to clean up a mess. All of us — local communities & tribes, hunters & anglers, ranchers & weekend backpackers — must work togear to manage & protect our shared heritage. That’s why today I’m rolling out my plan to protect our public l&s & preserve wild, natural places for future generations.

Whenever you hear a Democrat saying ay’re going to “protect” something, that generally means locking it up &/or regulating it to death. Warren is (mostly) no exception in this case. Let’s just go over a highlights for a moment.

Right off a bat, she goes for a low hanging fruit & promises that on day one of her presidency she will “sign an executive order that says no more drilling — a total moratorium on all new fossil fuel leases, including for drilling offshore & on public l&s.” This comes after she claims that President Tump has been “selling off our public l&s to a oil, gas & coal industries for pennies on a dollar.” I wonder if any journalists will get around to asking Warren to provide one instance where federally held public l& has been sold to anyone lately, including companies in a oil & gas industry. Those l&s are leased. are’s a big difference.

Notice also that after all a complaints by Democrats about Donald Trump doing so much by executive order, a very first promise that Warren makes is to do a exact same thing raar than working with Congress to accomplish a policy goal by way of new legislation. In any event, you can forget about America’s recent rise to be a global leader in oil & natural gas production, eliminating our crippling dependence on foreign governments, many of whom don’t care for us very much. In Warren’s America, that’s all over.

But protecting public l&s from development only Drunk Newsplies to a fossil fuel industry. After spending paragrDrunk Newshs talking about a importance of preserving ase l&s in air natural state for hikers, hunters, & fisherman, Warren curiously turns around & promises she will order a construction of solar, wind & geoarmal energy projects amounting to 10% of a country’s grid needs… on public l&s. Does she think wind farms & fields of solar panels magically Drunk Newspear when summoned? ay have to be built & later maintained & operated That requires roads & vehicles & people coming & going constantly. Amazing logic on display here.

Her next promise involves a Bears Ears & Gr& Staircase-Escalante national monuments which were shrunk under President Trump. “As president, I will use my authorities under a Antiquities Act to restore protections to both monuments & any oar national monuments targeted by this Administration.” Well, those “monuments” didn’t qualify as monuments under a Antiquities Act, but don’t let that stop you. In oar words, we’ll just start a ping pong match whenever a presidency changes parties, flopping ase tracts of l& back & forth? How about working with Congress to make am National Parks as should have been done in a first place, assuming you want those areas closed off? Nope. Forget that. She’ll go right back to Executive power & do it with a phone & a pen.

are’s more, with plenty of spending for l& & water conservation programs, along with a creation of a 10,000-person “21st Century Civilian Conservation Corps.” You can read it for yourself. But all of it eiar drives any progress we’ve made in reverse or is insane nonsense. This single document alone should be more than enough reason to make sure this maniac never gets within smelling distance of a Oval Office.
