Skip to comments.Montana House votes to nullify Endangered Species Act
Posted on 02/19/2011 6:56:54 PM PST by george76
The Montana House has overwhelmingly endorsed a plan to disregard the federal law protecting endangered and threatened species. Republicans enthused by Gov. Brian Schweitzer's recent tough talk on wolves led a 61-39 vote Saturday to nullify the federal Endangered Species Act in Montana.
Tea party politics in the Legislature have spawned increasing belief in an 18th-century doctrine that purported to give states the ultimate say in constitutional matters...

Yes. I have a cousin who is among them. She thinks that wolves are pretty and, therefore, cannot do any harm to anyone.
There must be something good in the water up there. Montana's neighbor -- Idaho -- also became the first state to officially "nullify" Obamacare.
Way to go, Northwest!
Thanks for the ping!
Scientists say they can now use DNA to make a Woolly Mammoth.
No species can go extinct.
Marbury v. Madison
It seems there are many that are getting fed up with enviro nazis, some judges on the federal bench that support them, leftist unions that represent both private and public employees, etc.
It also seems that those fed up people are going to give it their best shot in taking our country back.
Now if California just ignored the little fishes and opened up the Central Valley to irrigation again.
I loved the one that showcased some idiot that was living amongst the bears photographing them. This moron convinced his girlfriend to live with him in this environment.
They both ended up as bear crap!
Saw that. She wasn’t very bright to allow him to talk her into doing camping out with the grizzlies. There is a reason they call them animals.
the drive by liberal media can’t concentrate on everybody at once. this action in MT is just one result of their cover-up of so many things their progressive politician friends have been doing to this country. normal people are just pissed off (if i may speak for conservatives in an aggregate way). too much consolidation in the newspaper industry and news media has led to what basically amounts to official propaganda in the mainstream press.
our country has so many problems i can’t even begin to name them. and so much of those problems come from the media refusing to tell the truth to the people. and people feeling intimidated to speak out against it.
this post is rambling and incoherent. sorry. :)
“The 10th Amendment Movement is an effort to push back against unconstitutional federal laws and regulations on a state level. The principle is known as nullification, and was advised by many prominent founders.”
Info on history and more. Interesting.
God bless America.
Yes, and someone posted to me a few days back that dogs would not kill and eat a person. Sure!!!!
hey Dave...your new guy is a piece of federalist crap isn’t he?
I saw that story too and shook my head.
Your old guy, the Dem, he was more conservative than this punk and he had a pair too.
What a letdown.
When we visit our land in Montana, we always get an earful about wolves from the local ranchers. They are just beside themselves about losing their calves and sheep to these predators. A little bit west, in Bozeman, we were told people are afraid to let their dogs and kids play outside because of the wolves. Next summer, they may be selling wolf skins at the craft fairs.
I didn’t “love” it. I was horrified by the results of the delusions of the idiot that thought that the bears were his “friends”.
That he ended up as bear food was terrible enough, but that his GF also ended up as part of the total of 30 lbs of recognizable human remains (other than what was inside the two bears the rangers had to kill) was the real tragedy.
To make light of the huge error in judgement that led to the deaths of two PEOPLE is beneath contempt.
He was an idiot, no doubt.
She was a fool to believe him, no doubt.
To celebrate and laugh at their huge mistake is unutterbly disgusting.
To view the doctrine in its true character, it must be recollected that it asserts, a right in a single State, to stop the execution of a Federal law, altho in effect stopping the law everywhere, until a Convention of the States could be brought about by a process requiring an uncertain time; and finally in the Convention when formed a vote of 7 States, if in favor of the veto, to give it a prevalence over the vast majority of 17 States. For this preposterous & anarchical pretension there is not a shadow of countenance in the Constitn.
It is remarkable how closely the nullifiers who make the name of Mr. Jefferson the pedestal for their colossal heresy, shut their eyes and lips, whenever his authority is ever so clearly and emphatically against them. You have noticed what he says in his letters to Monroe & Carrington Pages 43 & 203, vol. 2,1 with respect to the powers of the old Congress to coerce delinquent States, and his reasons for preferring for the purpose a naval to a military force; and moreover that it was not necessary to find a right to coerce in the Federal Articles, that being inherent in the nature of a compact. It is high time that the claim to secede at will should be put down by the public opinion; and I shall be glad to see the task commenced by one who understands the subject.
