    Trump Picks Former Monsanto Executive to Head U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service



    In what environmental groups are calling a cruel joke, the Trump administration’s has chosen a former agro-chemical executive to head of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service.

    Aurelia Skipwith worked as a corporate affairs executive at Monsanto for six years before spending the last year and a half in the U.S. Department of the Interior, where she oversaw the dismantling of dozens of wildlife protections, including:

    The discontinuation of studies assessing the impact of pesticides on endangered species
    The reversal of a decision prohibiting bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides and genetically modified crops on national wildlife refuges.

    If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Skipwith’s duties will include enforcing federal wildlife laws, protecting endangered species, managing migratory birds, and conserving and restoring wildlife habitat.

    It should also be noted — since one of her main duties would be to protect fish — that agro-chemical companies like Monsanto are largely to blame for the “dead zones” of the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, where runoff from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides has contributed to making entire coastlines uninhabitable by fish.

    The pick continues a Trump Administration trend of filling top environmental positions with members of the industries the agencies are intended to regulate, notes the Organic Consumers Association.

    Dissected a frog once.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Doesnt matter - she's a black woman. MSNBC will have a 5 hour special on diversity in the trump administration. The world is, at this very moment, a much better place.

    Before we had lobbyists hiding behind congress and the executive telling them how to word laws. Cut out the middle man, put lobbyists directly in charge. Sure we had this happen before, like W put a Verizon lawyer in charge of the FCC, but who cared about one or two lobbyists here and there? At least with W you could think it was plain old nepotism putting Powell's son in charge of the FCC.

    Now Trump is doing things better than Obama ever did, having more lobbyists than O did. #winning

    We did want more transparency in government... we should have clarified what we meant!

    She is dismantling things but that's overshadowed by the Monsanto conspiracy noise. You people.

    Bull$#@! alert;
    The reversal of a decision prohibiting bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides and genetically modified crops on national wildlife refuges.

    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.
