Two New National Monuments-Bears Ears & Gold Butte

"President Obama on Tuesday created new national monuments in a sacred tribal site in southeastern Utah and in a swath of Nevada desert, after years of political fights over the fate of the sites.
The designations further cement Obama’s environmental legacy as one of the most consequential — and contentious — in presidential history. He now has invoked his executive power to create national monuments 29 times during his tenure, establishing or expanding protections for more than 553 million acres of federal lands and waters."

Thank you Mr. President!

Gold Butte Proclamation - https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press...ional-monument

Apparently Cliven Bundy's ranch is in this area and that old bigoted deadbeat rancher is none too happy about this beautiful historic landscape being protected by President Obama under the Antiquities Act.

Bears Ears Proclamation - https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press...ional-monument

This one is a very special place, sacred to the Navajo, Ute and Paiute.

An added bonus is that Orrin Hatch is hopping mad about it.

Some folks think that "this land is our land" actually means it is their personal land to exploit as they see fit.

Just another great thing Obama has done that pisses the reds off. Of course anything good and decent pisses the reds off.....
