it threatens endangered insects

Daily Mail [UK] and Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:Ribicon, 2/10/2018 10:49:20 PM

A tiny endangered butterfly could stop President Donald Trump from building his beloved border wall. A lawsuit has been filed by the Center for Biological Diversity, environmental groups and the State of California against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. It outlines that the Quino checkerspot butterfly, Riverside fairy shrimp and the Pacific pocket mouse will be threatened if the border wall is built. The butterfly, which is native to southern California and Northern Mexico, is already on the endangered species list. The lawsuit contends that the Department of Homeland Security does not have the ability to waive environmental laws requiring review before building

Law abiding, tax paying citizens will become endangered unless the wall is built - on time. Let´s get our priorities straight here.

The entire ecosystem will collapse if we lose the endangered sphincter maggot.
As these poor creatures depend on people with poor hygiene to survive, rational public policy will decimate their habitat.

About the Center for Biological Diversity, which has filed a lawsuit and whose lawyer is shown in the article, and the creatures it is saying will be threatened by the Wall:

http://www.biologicaldiversity.org/species/invertebrates/Quino_checkerspot_butterfly/index.html

This blurb looks as though it may have been added to the Center’s webpage recently. You think?

The Quino checkerspot tends to avoid flying over objects taller than six to eight feet.

“Tends to”. How do they know?

Years ago a company I was with was building a huge Hyatt resort complex on land it owned on the Big Island of Hawaii. What stalled it at the last moment before ground was to be broken? Tiny shrimp in lava tide pools. Shrimp that were said to be endangered, fragile, and lived only in those particular tide pools.

Our dozers went out in the night and scraped out some more new areas that instantly filled and became tide pools. And lo and behold, there were more of those shrimp. Happy as can be.

The hotel is now the Hilton Waikoloa Village

Trump needs to do a deal with Mexico and have the wall built inside their jurisdiction. He has the leverage since remittances by illegals back to Mexico exceeds their oil export revenue.

Washington — Funding for the Gateway Tunnel project was included the transportation spending bill heading to the House floor, despite opposition from President Donald Trump. The House Appropriations Committee approved money for the new tunnel under the Hudson River and new Portal Bridge across the Hackensack River in the $71.8 billion transportation spending bill for the 12 months beginning Oct. 1. Money for Gateway would be spread across several rail accounts that are given $3.2 billion, $2.1 billion more than Trump proposed, including money targeted to the Northeast Corridor.

Captain Beau Matthews told reporters the shooter, a white male who walked in and began randomly shooting, was the person killed. He was shot by a citizen also carrying a handgun as he tried to run away from the scene. An adult woman and young girl, both believed to be customers, were shot in the attack.

In May 1961, an elderly woman in Paris heard a knock at the door of her six-story walk-up apartment. It was only the most powerful man in the world. The president of the United States was going door-to-door hoping to find the call girl he had discreetly arranged to meet. John F. Kennedy, it turned out, used a fake excuse about a doctor’s visit to attend a long-arranged dalliance while in Paris for a crucial summit, only to wind up in the wrong building, knocking on the doors of random Parisians who were left with the surprise of their lives.

The 60 kiosks, which will be locked trash boxes placed in the hardest-hit Bronx parks, are part of a $60 million HealingNYC program to combat the drug plague, announced Monday.

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.
