President Trump signed two executive orders to reduce the size of two national monuments in Utah. Bears Ears will be reduced by 85% and Grand Staircase-Escalante by almost half, removing federal restrictions against development of two million acres of land. Trump’s announcement prompted cheers and a chant of “four more years!” from the crowd inside the Capitol building. On the outside, demonstrators complained that it was a sell-out to industrial interests who want to destroy the land for profit.

President Donald Trump signed two executive orders Monday to reduce the size Utah’s Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments.
Trump announced the orders during a speech in Salt Lake City, Utah. The cutbacks will shrink Bears Ears by roughly 85 percent and Grand Staircase-Escalante by nearly half, removing federal protections and restrictions on about two million acres of federal land, according to documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
“You know the best how to take care of your land, you know how to protect it, and you know best how to conserve this land for many, many generations to come,” Trump said. “Your timeless bond with the outdoors should not be replaced with the whims of regulators thousands and thousands of miles away.”
The executive orders make up the largest reduction to national monuments in scale by a president in the history of the Antiquities Act, according to The New York Times
The 1.35 million acre Bears Ears National Monument, designated in Dec. 2016 by former President Barack Obama, will be reduced and broken up into two different areas. The areas, Indian Creek and Shash Jáa, will cover about 72,000 acres and 130,000 acres, respectively.
Bears Ears’ new boundaries release more than 90,000 acres of Utah state land that was previously locked inside the monument. About 6,000 acres of privately owned land was released, as well.
Former President Bill Clinton designated Grand Staircase-Escalante in 1996. At 1.9 million acres, the national monument encompassed an area about the size of Delaware.
Under Trump’s new executive order, Grand Staircase-Escalante will be broken up into three new monuments: the Grand Staircase unit, the Kaiparowits unit and the Escalante Canyons unit. Together, the three new national monuments will cover just over 1 million acres.
Trump’s announcement prompted cheers and a chant of “four more years!” from the crowd inside the Capitol building, however, environmentalists and other protesters outside called the decision a sellout to industry interests.

If illegal aliens living in the US were deported, it would save taxpayers an astounding $622 billion over a lifetime. A majority of Americans support Trump’s plan to mass deport illegal aliens following inaction from Congress. [Too bad it’s no longer supported by Trump.]
A religious Orthodox Christian father, Jeff Younger, is legally prohibited from raising his son as a boy, under threat of imprisonment, because his ex-wife , who is a pediatrician, claimed their son is a transgender girl.

In August 2016, the US Court of Appeals ruled that it is Constitutional to ban gun ownership from marijuana users, not because they are considered to be incapable of safely possessing guns, but because the plant remains illegal at the federal level. This is due to a Hawaii statute that makes it illegal to own a firearm if it is forbidden by federal law – another case of states voluntarily surrendering their sovereign rights to the federal government.
The Obama administration created a regulation requiring states to pay an unconstitutional fee that is styled as a tax on the states. Texas sued in federal court and was joined by Indiana, Nebraska, Kansas, and Louisiana- the states were awarded a total of $839 million.
