"President Trump said he would dramatically reduce the size of a vast expanse of protected federal land in Utah on Monday, a rollback of some two million acres that is the largest in scale in the nation’s history.
The administration said it would shrink Bears Ears National Monument, a sprawling region of red rock canyons, by about 85 percent, and cut another area, Grand Staircase-Escalante, to about half its current size. The move, a reversal of protections put in place by Democratic predecessors, comes as the administration pushes for fewer restrictions and more development on public lands.
The decision to reduce Bears Ears is expected to trigger a legal battle that could alter the course of American land conservation, possibly opening millions of protected public acres to oil and gas extraction, mining, logging and other commercial activities.
“Some people think that the natural resources of Utah should be controlled by a small handful of very distant bureaucrats located in Washington,” Mr. Trump said, speaking at Utah’s domed State Capitol. “And guess what? They’re wrong.””*

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. A young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations.(American Heritage Dictionary)
Why would Trump care, he has never ‘Pitched a Tent, made a campfire, hiked a trail, or been to a National Park in his life’......America is being cut up into small pieces and sold to Corporations for the benefit of the 1% super-rich....
So Trump is trying to return the parks to the states? would you rather it be under Trumps control? Its a federal land.. the Federal government can do what it likes with the land, and the government would get the money. However if its returned the state it would be up to that state to do with it as they please, if they so choose to make it a strip mine, that state would make the money.
You hate Trump alot but you want him to keep power or take away power from the people.. it seems strange to me.
The lands that are removed from the monument will go to the private for profit big oil/mining corps to FURTHER financially enrich themselves on the backs of the tax payer. All approved by the politicians they OWN!
Wow, I can’t think of a more misleading title. Do you realize the federal government already owns 2/3 of all the land in Utah? Do you realize the combined size of just these two monuments AFTER the reduction is bigger than Rhode Island? Notice these two pieces of shit in the video tell you how much the reduction is but don’t tell you how big the piece is that is left? Why do you think they left that out?
Isn't Hell ready for him? 99% for a beautiful area that should remain for generations. He's sheer evil. Mr Mueller, please hit him with every count that you can, and take down his criminal Syndicate that is destroying your country, please.
A little HISTORY the President that signed the 1906 Antiquities Act and established the U.S. Forest Service .............. ..............................Theodore Roosevelt .................He was a ..........................REPUBLICAN !!!
TrumP is a real POS. He's selling America to the highest bidder one piece at a time. And the idiot TrumPiss' clap and cheer. Wonder how much kickback TrumP gets from them. He thinks is HIS land to sell. After all, he is President King.
Trump doesn’t give a fuck about national parks. He lives in glass, steel and concrete. He’s never camped out a day in his life. He’d rather see people going to his golf resorts than visiting national parks. You really think he’s giving these lands to Utahns. Drill, baby, drill!!! The frackers. miners, drillers and pipers are waiting to take over.
I've fought against copper mines in Arizona. They strip mine beautiful mountain areas, operate for a few years while the price of copper is high, and then leave the place a trashed out toxic site for the taxpayers to clean up. It's just a coincidence that wars drive up copper prices.
This is going too far, what the hell is going on? How can they demand the protection of confederate momuments and then do something like this? This is violating parts of history Trump supporters can't even understand.
Yay!!!!! Another domino falls. I'm so fortunate to bear witness to the destruction of the USA by the internal rotten core of corruption. The white entitlement that has been the stain, the disease of American society, will run its course and topple itself and reduce this country int a third rate bankrupted wasteland. Poisoned and unlivable. This system's self-destruction is inevitable. They are like a run-away train heading towards a cliff.
I am utterly disgusted by the de-evolving of America. The only way this ends, is to put it out of its misery, and these sociopaths are happy and willing to do so.
The same bastard's that corrupted us politics are the same mother fuckers that assassinated JFK. These evil beings will never give up on their greed and lust for power. They see themselves almost as gods that can do whatever they want.
I long for the day when the People of USA will bring this fuckers to the guillotine just like France.
The Utah Rep. Rob Bishop is the Chairman of the "Natural Resources Committee" of the House-Senate conference committee for the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. That doesn't look suspicious a day after Trump gave National Park Lands in Utah back to the State.
Its not just that hes an evil money worshiping piece if living shit.
Its more that Obama was involved and his racism and unbridled hate for Obama, most likely because Obama is better than him in every single way. And Donny Tiny Hands knows it. If Obama did cured cancer, Trump would outlaw the cure, claim it was to protect people ans Republicans would let their familes all die in agony and believe it.
Trump is a shill for corporations, especially fossil fuel companies. Period. It's a fire sale of all assets and protections that prevent companies and corporations from running roughshod over people's rights and protections. He is a shady developer who cares not one bit for protecting forests, water, air, or people themselves from the pillaging of big companies. Put together with his criminal past, his ongoing assault against democracy, his treasonous sellout to Russia, his dehumanizing racism and sexism, he is easily the epitome of sleaze.
The Antiquities Act gives the president the power to declare National Monuments, not to remove them. That requires a act of Congress. Personally though I do believe those monuments are far larger than they really need to be.
Well, realistically, now that the Oligarchy is basically not paying taxes at all, what the hell do you expect them to DO with all that free money?! They have to be offered SOMETHING to buy, so it's the National Parks, and they can strip them for resources to sell to real countries over seas.
This IS what we voted for.
