A large research project studying endangered species in Australia has tallied 29 recovered species—all animals that can be safely de-listed from the country’s endangered species list.
Australia’s Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act currently lists 446 species of animals in genuine need of protection, but 29 of those are no longer in need—15 mammals, 8 birds, 4 frogs, a reptile, and a fish.
Among these critters are the golden, Western barred, and Eastern barred bandicoots, Western quoll, sooty albatross, waterfall frog, Flinder’s Range worm-lizard, yellow-footed rock wallabies, greater bilby, humpback whale, growling grass frog, Murray’s cod, and others.

Documents he took
I’m going to try and lay down some common sense for a lot of people out there. Because it surely is lacking.
No other President took classified or declassified documents out of office. Each president has to go through the process of declassification of the documents. The process is then made on record. Trump did not go through this process. Therefore It was not fully declassified.
If he did absolutely nothing wrong, the warrant would not have made the table and then become approved, by a judge. The FBI are not required to tell the public what the documents are. That’s between them, the judge and any lawyer that may become involved.
The populace has no rights to know anything here. Especially, when it comes to classified documents, that could endanger the country. All documents are supposed to go to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Not to an ex-Presidents residence.
These are facts not alternative information. Just because you don’t like these facts, doesn’t make it any less true.
I’m all for truth, I’m also 100% behind laws being followed. He was repeatedly asked for the return of the documents for months. He refused and hid behind, his followers and lawyers.
He incited violence AGAIN. Which caused followers to shoot up an FBI office. Causing a casualty.
How is this okay? Let them do their job. If Trump is innocent, they can prove that via court trials. If he’s guilty then he’s guilty.
300 documents were taken. None of which were properly declassified. This is a crime with a prison sentence of 20 years to life. No one is above the law of this country. Not even the POTUS or ex-POTUS.
If these people were truly “patriotic” as they claim. They would be disgusted by the actions of the very person, they voted for.
Sunoco Convicted Of Environmental Crimes Over Mariner East 2 Pipeline | Patch
HARRISBURG, PA — Sunoco has been convicted of environmental crimes in Pennsylvania after construction of its Mariner East 2 Pipeline repeatedly ravaged sensitive ecosystems around southeastern Pennsylvania and damaged drinking water. On several occassions, Sunoco failed to report spills or take required precautions to prevent incidents from occurring, the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office said.
Mariner East 2 aims to transport Marcellus shale natural gas from western Pennsylvania and Ohio to Marcus Hook, on the Delaware River. The pipelines pass through 17 counties across southern Pennsylvania, including in the densely populated Philadelphia suburbs, where safety issues and water pollution impacted thousands.
“We have a constitutional right in Pennsylvania to clean air and pure water,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a statement. “It’s a right that was enshrined in our state constitution at a time when the people of Pennsylvania learned a tough lesson first-hand — the health of our children, and our economic future, depended on protecting our environment from reckless profit and unchecked corporate interests.”

Women Don’t Have Rights: Thanks Republicans
Women do not have basic constitutional rights. Unless you consider “voting rights” basic. The constitution DOES NOT cover healthcare either.
We would of had protection back in 1972, IF the Equal Rights Act was passed. However, it was defeated and largely because of a WOMAN named Phyllis Schlafly.
Phyllis Schlafly held paleoconservative social and political views, opposed liberal feminism, gay rights and abortion, and successfully campaigned against ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
How did Phyllis do this? Phyllis Schlafly was perhaps the most visible opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment. Her “Stop ERA” campaign hinged on the belief that the ERA would eliminate laws designed to protect women and led to the eventual defeat of the amendment.
When in reality the ERA would have given:
Men and women shall have equal rights throughout the United States and every place subject to its jurisdiction. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
Meaning, Women will not be discriminated against. Nor will their body autonomy come into question. Meaning Roe V Wade would have been solidified.
Furthermore, what the SCOTUS has done was indeed a violation of the constitution. Yet not for the reasons people think. (Since many think it was a violation of women’s rights when that does not exist – constitutionally) it was a violation of CHURCH AND STATE. The first amendment. And they have violated the 14th amendment.
First Amendment- When the First Amendment was adopted in 1791, the establishment clause applied only to the federal government, prohibiting the federal government from any involvement in religion. By 1833, all states had disestablished religion from government, providing protections for religious liberty in state constitutions.
The first amendment to the US Constitution states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
Meaning- Congress shall not use their religious beliefs to make a RULING Or DECISION. They took an oath to be unbiased during their “meetings”.
Which brings us to the 14th Amendment.
14, section 3 – All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Meaning men and women have a right to life. Meaning taking away abortions for legit medical reasons that may cause life threatening issues were infringed upon.
Ectopic pregnancy is not a viable pregnancy and is life threatening. The “egg” and “cells” can rupture the Fallopian tubes, causing mass hemorrhage ( internal bleeding). Ectopic pregnancy are not exemptions from the anti-abortion laws, when it should be!
Placental Abruptions happen and although SOME rare occasions it corrects itself. There are times when they don’t and again will cause internal bleeding and fetal death. If the dead “fetus” is not removed this will cause fatal infection and sepsis. This causes a woman’s DEATH. Again infringing upon the right to life.
14th amendment “oath”. The oaths taking before settling into office is for said Senator, President and SCOTUS to uphold the constitution fully without biases. This was infringed upon. They lied under oath.
Because religious views played a big role in their decisions. 🖕🏽This is why there is separation between church and freaking state.
Life does not begin at conception. Cells begin at conception. Implantation begins, life does not. Therefore these antiabortionists are basically saying CANCER CELLS have A RIGHT TO LIFE. They are saying mens sperm have a right to life. Even though all men jerk off into a sock and abort that seed.
Let me see you prolife jerks outlaw Masturbation. I also want to see you adopt children from the orphanage’s. You are not prolife you are probirth. Because once that kid is born, there is NO affordable healthcare, daycare or preschool.
I am prochoice. The freedom to choose. The freedom to practice your religion without shoving it down someone else’s throat. The freedom to protest, the freedom to form an opinion, to choose a job, to go to the college you want or to not go.
I have been debating whether or not to share this news with everyone. It breaks my heart that our Government in the state of Pennsylvania is heartless.

Subject: Petition Signatures: Outlaw Cat Declaw ■ EXTERNAL EMAIL ■
To Representatives, Senators and Lt Governor,I have attached the following document for you to look over. With the hopes that you will come to a logical and fair decision.The document contains over 850 signatures requesting that Pennsylvania, follow suit with New York, and outlaw the barbarity that is cat declawing.I am also including the link to the petition, https://www.change.org/p/pennsylvania-governor-outlaw-the-declawing-of-cats
Declawing of cats has been a part of managing the scratching behavior of objects in cats. However, this barbaric tradition to protect ”items” and other material possession has caused more harm than good. Declawing cats has left them physically and mentally scarred for life.
We sit here on the precipice of destroying our beloved companions just to protect a few pieces of furniture or walls. All of which can easily be replaced, repaired and or protected by other humane ways.
Declawing of cats should never be an option. Scratching objects and or trees is a natural instinct for cats. The Medical drawbacks to declawing include pain in the paw, infection, tissue necrosis (tissue death), lameness, and back pain. Removing claws changes the way a cat’s foot meets the ground and can cause pain similar to wearing an uncomfortable pair of shoes.
Those who declaw their cats are basically torturing cats for a lifetime. Some cats, even big cats in zoos go through life never placing full weight on paws, some even developed a mental disorder. Leading them to constantly lick and or shake their paw uncontrollably.
Not to mention if cats should escape outside how would they ever defend themselves against other cats or wildlife? They wouldn’t and due to that inability to defend or climb a tree, they would most likely die.
Why declaw when There are many alternatives to declawing that doesn’t leave a hazardous effect. Such as having professional clip nails as they do for dogs. Nail caps that can be adjusted to their size. And then there is double-sided tape to protect walls and door frames. Bumpers to protect furniture and non-toxic apple bitter to deter them from scratching up surfaces.
There’s also an environmentally friendly cat tree. Made of hemp, cardboard, dead tree bark and sea rope. All of which is biodegradable and reusable.
Declawing should be nonexistent, it should be considered animal cruelty and punishable if done/practiced by any person.
I thank you for your time and understanding.
Regards Mrs. Mary Robbins
The fact that it took them 6 months is appalling. Don’t even get me started on meetings. This is a blanket statement and a complete letdown. If the state of Pennsylvania refuses to hear their people then it’s time to go over heads.
I don’t trust the Secretary of Muth. If Muth was so involved with animal welfare there would be a TNR program in place. There would be NO-Kill shelters and there would be no open door policy shelters either.
There are now over 3,000 signatures plenty to get the ball rolling with the upper legislation via the POTUS/House/Senate legislation. I will continue to push this issue.
WHO urges halt to sale of live wild animals in markets, citing disease risk – CBS News
Geneva — The United Nations’ health agency on Tuesday urged countries to suspend the sale of live animals captured from the wild in food markets. The World Health Organization recommended it as an emergency measure, saying wild animals are a leading source of emerging infectious diseases like the coronavirus.
The WHO, backed by key partners, issued new guidance saying that animals – particularly wild animals – “are the source of more than 70 percent of all emerging infectious diseases in humans, many of which are caused by novel viruses.”

Stop Pandemics at the Source – Ban Live Animal Markets and Factory Farms
By: Animal Place
COVID-19 has forever changed our world. In one year, 115 million global cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed. And sadly, 2.5 million people around the world have died. In the United States, over 28.7 million cases have been confirmed and over half a million people have died.
Most infectious diseases can be traced back to animals, including COVID-19. Large live animal markets provide a perfect breeding ground for a pandemic. So do the livestock auctions and live animal markets of the United States.
But how different is a live animal market abroad or in the U.S. compared to an industrial chicken farm in the United States? The similarities are frightening. 99% of animals raised in the US come from large-scale operations where stressed and terrified animals are crammed into small spaces often living in their own feces and other bodily fluids.
That’s why calling for an end to wild animal markets is not enough. It is time to make a change. To prevent pandemics like coronavirus we must end the demand for animal flesh and go vegan.
Stop pandemics where they start. Sign our petition today and demand an end to live animal markets and industrial factory farms.
Biden Won Legitimately
Usually I dislike getting into politics, due to the fact that all of it is muddy water. However, with the latest transpiring issues, I think it’s fair to say I should put my hat of cents into the ring.
Via – NyTimes
WASHINGTON — An election-year investigation by Senate Republicans into corruption allegations against Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son, Hunter, involving Ukraine found no evidence of improper influence or wrongdoing by the former vice president, closing out an inquiry its leaders had hoped would tarnish the Democratic presidential nominee.
Trump spun the Biden disinformation, with the help of “QAnon” – to distract everyone from his own misdoings in the Russian Collusion which can all be found in the Mueller report, among witness testimony. Now, if Republican senate can find no wrongdoing and has thus proved no wrong doing, why is there a continuance of a disinformation and hate campaign against our new POTUS?
Theories of why Trump Nation hate – Biden isn’t a White Supremacist, isn’t corrupt, isn’t there to pander to one group of people. Or because he worked with Obama. Or maybe because he is undoing the Trump legacy – that has been giving tax breaks to the Rich? Then there is the fact that he refuses the NWO and SG agenda. Where as Trump was full force with it. Which affected the poor population so much so that people are homeless by the droves.
Now since we actually have a good and decent POTUS, those who were of the Trump nation want nothing more than to destroy that. And we know why, don’t we? They think they are of the Master Race, “White Supremacy”. It’s quite real, I’ve had dealings with many of them. Most if not all are highly intolerable and ignorant. Brainwashed even.
Brainwashed into believing that all news except “Fox” is fake. Fox is fake, let that sink in – They go where the money is – they are flip flop flakey people. Wasn’t always like this, they use to actually do investigations before reporting anything. And now with the rise of Disinformation and Fox complicity we have a huge issue on our hands. Especially with “QAnon” being center platform of disinformation that people actually listen too.
QAnon – are three individuals, who first appeared on the 4 and 6chan forums, spouting out chaos theories, in support of Trump. They then took it a step forward, building their base on their own website and twitter. Using doctored, altered images and video to get their agenda across. They even went as far as to ALTER Anonymous fact videos. QAnon is NOT part of the Anonymous collective, and should never be confused as such. Again, it was started by three individuals who sought to misinform the populace in support of Trump, by any means necessary. They have thus far, spouted rumours of celebrities and even the current POTUS without evidential proof.
QAnon has become embedded in the deep state and the Senate. By way of manipulation and funding. QAnon, must be taken down a notch. Fight misinformation they spread with facts and evidence. That’s all one can do at this point.
Back to the basis of this post – Back in December: The Arizona Supreme Court unanimously affirmed Biden’s victory in the state, upholding a lower court’s finding that there was no misconduct, fraud or illegal voting in the general election.
Here’s why there were anomalies in the votes. More people REGISTERED to VOTE. And in doing so, there were MORE VOTERS to put their voice to work. Trump accomplished one thing. He got PEOPLE TO VOTE, those who didn’t vote in any election finally stood up and used their rights. I know this for a fact – Because I am one of those people, and so is my better half and friend. None of us had voted in a presidential election before until now. And apparently this common sense doesn’t seem to sink into people’s brains. They’re also not taken into fact that there are a NEW GENERATION of voters who just turned 18. Or the fact that there are MILITARY overseas who voted by way of mail-in as well.
Again no fraud happened, it was all live streamed, the only fraud and or crime that happened was Armed civilians trying to break into the ballot offices to stop votes, in GA, PA, NJ and elsewhere. All of whom were charged of crimes.
To Summarize – Biden will have a long road ahead, to try and unite this country again. Especially, with the QAnon having a platform to misinform people with their crazy conspiracy theory. Lest ye not forget though, there is always evidence to debunk their fraud.

President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to ban new oil and gas leasing
President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to ban new oil and gas leasing on America’s federal public lands and waters on Day One of his administration.
Nearly a quarter of the country’s total greenhouse gas emissions come from public lands due to coal mining and oil and gas drilling. We can’t keep leasing public lands to the fossil fuel industry and have any chance of reducing emissions or seriously confronting the climate crisis.
And due to Trump’s executive orders of undermining the Environmental Protection Act, along with the Water Protection Act. Big companies such as BP and Keystone, are free to muddy our waters with chemicals. Whilst also spewing poisonous gases into our ozone layer.
Just because Biden pledged to halt and undo Trump’s actions doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll DO. Let’s make him keep his words. By using our voices and signature.
Sign the petition and share.
Urge President-elect Biden to keep dirty fossil fuels in the ground
These Dogs Are American Heroes, So Why Is Our Government Letting Them Die Painful Deaths
After a whistleblower told the U.S. government that their Explosive Detection Canines (EDCs) sent to the Kingdom of Jordan were being neglected, the inspector general’s (IG) office for the State Department began to investigate. What they discovered was horrifying.
At least ten bomb-sniffing dogs given to Jordan nation over the past 8 years have perished. Some of the dogs were young and healthy pups when they left but died shortly after they arrived in the Middle Eastern nation.
Zoe, for example, a 2-year-old female Belgian Malinois, died of heatstroke just 9 months after she arrived. Another dog, Mencey, a 3-year-old of the same bread, got so sick in Jordan from a tick-borne disease that she had to be returned to the United States for treatment. He died shortly afterward. Other dogs were found to be parasite ridden, emaciated, and lacking in proper medical attention. In light of their investigation, IG’s office determined that no more dogs should be sent to Amman. Yet, despite the initial complaint and the devastating findings of the IG’s report, dogs are still being sent.
These dogs are American heroes. They keep us and our allies safe by doing the jobs that are too dangerous for humans. The least we could do is make sure that they are well taken care of and have happy, healthy lives.
If Jordan or any other country that receives American EDCs cannot treat them humanely then they shouldn’t be allowed to have them. It’s just that simple.
Please sign the petition and demand that the U.S. State Department stop giving dogs to countries that can’t take care of them.
