Liberal Heads Explode as U.S. Senate Confirms Oil Lobbyist David Bernhardt as Interior Secretary

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Heh heh 🤣

The panicking over-reaction and bluster ... it's ... beautiful!

BAAAAAAAAAWWWWWW!

Clearly, the new Secretary of the Interior is not going to bow down and worship AOC's ludicrous, Socialist, New Green Deal.

The oil & gas haters really, really hate this guy.

U.S. Senate Confirms Oil Lobbyist David Bernhardt as Interior Secretary

The U.S. Senate on April 11 voted 56-41 to confirm President Trump’s nominee David Bernhardt, former oil and gas corporation and Westlands Water District lobbyist David Bernhardt, to be the Secretary of the Interior.

Senators Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Martin Heinrich (N.M.) and Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.), as well as Sen. Angus King (I-Maine), joined Senate Republicans in voting for Bernhardt’s confirmation.

Representatives of conservation, fishing and environmental justice organizations blasted the vote, with one group calling Bernhardt Trump’s “most conflict-ridden cabinet nominee.”

”After all of the clear documentation about his conflicts of interest and his apparent corruption, it’s really disappointing to seeing the Senate agree to make this guy the secretary with 56 votes,” said John McManus, President of the Golden Gate Salmon Association (GGSA). “It seems to me that the Senate had all of the information to make a good decision and instead made a bad decision. I am fairly certain that we will be engaged for the next two years in fighting off aggressive federal government efforts to drain the Delta dry and export northern California water hundreds of miles to grow almonds instead of salmon.”

“It’s another shameful day in Washington, DC as perhaps the most corrupt possible nominee for a cabinet position is confirmed by the Senate. The Interior Department is now fully captured by destructive industry and big money politics. I’m disgusted,” echoed Noah Oppenheim, Executive Director of the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations (PCFFA).

... Saeger and other opponents of the confirmation said Bernhardt has overseen some of the department’s most controversial public land decisions, including opening millions of acres of public lands to industrial oil and gas development and mismanaging America’s national parks during the historic government shutdown. “He’s been involved in at least 17 scandals prior to his confirmation,” concluded Saeger.

The Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) described Bernhardt as a “monumentally bad pick to lead Interior,” noting that the former gas and oil lobbyist sets a “new low bar for regulatory capture.”

Bernhardt is a complete disgrace.  It is hard to imagine someone less qualified. The man is an arrogant, insolent, walking disaster.

I thought the Trump Administration actually had a mud bottom out there, beyond which it could not sink.  I am obviously misinformed.

Would you elaborate on that?

Yet California has no problem appropriating water from the mountain States due to treaties signed over 100 years ago. These States are hurting for water now while Californians keep building and filling swimming pools.
