Heaven forbid that the Interior Secretary choose someone who isn’t an urban-dwelling, Che-shirt-wearing, vegan, member of Greenpeace.
The Media (D) is going nuts with any decision made by the Trump administration.
Ryan Zinke selects a conservative hunter to advise him on conservation…
The Huffington Post reports in their ‘Politics’ section the following about David Spady, a hunter from Montana.
Montana native David Spady is a longtime conservative operative in California, a foe of government regulation, the environmental movement and climate science, and a ubiquitous presence on social media chronicling his ostentatious gun and hunting escapades.
No bias there. No Siree.
Reporter, Chris D’Angelo then explains how Spady, whose ‘extraordinary access to the Trump family, top administration officials and Republican lawmakers’ has recently been appointed to advise the head of the Interior Department on wildlife and habitat conservation.
It seems that D’Angelo doesn’t understand the role that hunters have in conservation.
Humans have been hunting from time immemorial.
What happened to that whole ‘circle of life’ thing?
In Canada, there’s a huge problem with wolves and coyotes entering urban areas and attacking pets and small children. The reasons for them spreading to cities? Large swaths of green space near cities for them to roam free, booming populations, and environmentalists pushing hunting bans.
Maybe we need some hunters at the table to discuss what’s going on ‘on the ground’ so to speak.
D’Angelo continues with his vilification of Spady. He mentions that Spady has met with Zike a dozen times since January.
But wait! There’s more!
In the last year and a half, Spady has swapped hunting stories with Eric Trump at Trump World Tower in New York City, and posted a photo in November 2016 with then-candidate Donald Trump, dressed in a Trump brand tie and a camouflage “Make America Great Again” hat. He’s appeared in pictures with Donald Trump Jr., whom he called a “kindred hunter,” and Vice President Mike Pence, whom he described as “a man of unwavering character, steadfast loyalty, a great sense of humor and excellent communication skills.”
He and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) are friends. He’s mingled at Montana ski resorts, including the private Yellowstone Club, with Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Steve Daines (R-Mont.). At the White House Christmas party, Spady looked at home with Ivanka Trump, then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
And, horror of horrors, David Spady, has posted photos with his friend, Ryan Zinke.
“My wife and I have interacted with him and his wife a few times socially,” Spady said. “It’s not something I do every time I’m in Washington, D.C., but I’m back there quite a bit and if I have some time I’ll swing by and say hi to him, as I do with a number of other people I know there.”
In one of these photos with Zinke was a stuffed grizzly bear.
And then there are the other photos that Spady posts on social media that seems to have triggered the Media (D).
Like this one:
Or this one:
Spady enjoys hunting, fishing and shooting guns, but he has no professional experience working in the field of wildlife conservation. According to his LinkedIn profile, he studied communications at Azusa Pacific University and national security studies at California State University, San Bernardino. He worked for Americans for Prosperity from 2007 to 2016 and has been with Salem Media Group, either as a full-time employee or consultant, for nearly two decades. In 2007, he founded his own public relations group. In addition to DFNDR Armor, his clients include Freedom Partners, a conservative nonprofit founded in 2011 and backed by the Koch brothers.
This has, of course, upset the tree-huggers. (Emphasis added.)
Aaron Weiss, media director of the Colorado-based conservation group Center for Western Priorities, finds it telling that Zinke gives face time to Spady on a near monthly basis, but refused to meet with his advisory board for the National Park Service ― a claim made by board members who resigned in January. (Interior spokeswoman Heather Swift dismissed that as “patently false.”)
“Giving Spady, who holds extremist views on public lands, a seat at the table shows that Ryan Zinke’s claims of a ‘pivot’ to conservation are complete nonsense,” Weiss said.

How about ‘different views’?
Or a ‘balanced view’?
It seems as though the ‘journalist’ really doesn’t like David Spady. There are more ridiculous accusations about Spady, including playing cards using ammo as poker chips, (use what you’ve got on hand, I say!) and making ‘bed mummies’ out of sheets in high-end hotel rooms.
That’s just petty.
If you scour anyone’s social media feed you can find them posting fun, silly things for their followers.
Here’s the video that D’Angelo posted at the end of his article that shows David Spady as an intelligent, articulate, and incredibly well-informed patriot.
Frankly, the appointment looks like it’s a good one.
The Media (D) freaking out about it only confirms that.
CNN — all the news that’s fit to flush.
Are you tired of the fake news that spews forth from CNN and the lame-stream media? Well, you don’t have to put up with their crap anymore! Clash Daily is proud to release a very special brand of toilet paper!
Send to your liberal friends so that they can wipe their minds clear of the waste produced by the Communist News Network!
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
In his killer new book RISE, KILL & EAT: A Theology of Hunting From Genesis to Revelation Doug carries on with his courageous war against the lunatic fringe who dare recommend Bambi solutions to the annual production of edible wildlife. –Ted Nugent
