Confiscating private land for frogs

CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen warns that a pending Supreme Court case could leave property owners at the mercy of federal bureaucrats who would have absolute authority to order them to renovate their property to welcome endangered species -- at their own expense, even if the species was not native to the property.

Conservation – not more control

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen reports on the final assault by the Obama Administration against Western States -- and a new war being declared against much of the rest of the country -- all to "save" three species of bumblebee but really intended to place much of the rest of private and state land in the U.S. under very restrictive federal government control. The best way to stop this assault on human freedom is to repeal, or drastically modify, the Endangered Species Act.

The Big Green job-killing machine

The Center for Biological Diversity -- an offshoot of the violent radical group Earth First!, -- has been systematically using the Endangered Species Act to shut down jobs in the timber, mining, and other industries that once were major job suppliers in Western States. Worse, federal judges have been going along with this unwarranted taking of property and income for decades. It is time that this stops.

Western States scramble to avoid ESA listing for greater sage-grouse

First, it was the spotted owl -- a horrific decision that destroyed jobs forever despite faulty science. Then, the land grabbers at the USGS and the FWS determined that the "Gunnison sage-grouse" is a different species (not just a variety, as is the scientific reality) from the "greater sage-grouse," and so took more land out of production. Now these servants of the state (not the people) want to list the "greater sage-grouse" -- yet another taking that is facing real opposition. The Endangered Species Act as written and executed is bad law that uses bad science -- and does not adequately protect the species it claims to favor.
