Conservatives Against Conservation


Malo oimikapo magalimoto a konkire anali akuyaka kunja kwa Mercury Studios ku Irving, nyumba ya atolankhani a Glenn Beck wodziwika bwino kwambiri. Mpanda wabodza wopentidwa mbali imodzi ya nyumba yochititsa chidwi kwambiri unkawonetsa mayendedwe a kitschy Americana mkati, komwe kumanja kwa True Texas Project inali pafupi kuchita msonkhano. Wotsogolera mwambowu anali Margaret Byfield, mkulu wa bungwe la American Steward of Liberty (ASL), bungwe lopanda phindu lokhala ku Georgetown, Texas, lomwe limadziwika kwambiri poyesa kuchepetsa chiwerengero cha nyama zomwe zatsala pang’ono kutha.

Byfield adabwera ku North Texas kudzakambirana za njira yatsopano ya ASL, yomwe iye ndi mwamuna wake Dan adakhala chaka chatha ndikusintha kuyendera dziko. Iwo anali kumeneko, m’mawu a Margaret, kuti “apange gulu lankhondo” kuti achitepo kanthu motsutsana ndi chimene iye akuchilingalira kukhala chimodzi cha “kulanda malo” kwakukulu m’mbiri.

The Byfields adatsogolera kumenyera ufulu wa katundu ndi chitetezo cha malo okhala mwamphamvu kwambiri kwazaka zambiri. Bambo ake a Margaret, Wayne Hage, anali nkhani ya milandu yayikulu kwambiri m’mbiri, Hage v. United States, chifukwa cholephera kulipira ndalama zodyetsera ziweto atagwiritsa ntchito malo aboma. Margaret Byfield adayambitsa gulu la ufulu wa katundu la Steward of the Range mu 1992, lomwe pambuyo pake linagwirizana ndi American Steward of Liberty ku 2009. ASL tsopano ikutsogolera nkhondo yolimbana ndi ndondomeko yoteteza zachilengedwe yotchedwa 30 by 30 Initiative. Pansi pa zaka 30 ndi 30, maiko akulimbikitsidwa kuti asankhe mwakufuna kwawo 30 peresenti ya nyanja zawo ndi nthaka ngati malo otetezedwa ndi 2030 kuti achepetse ziwopsezo zobwera chifukwa cha kusintha kwa nyengo. Idawonekera koyamba mu 2019 ngati lingaliro m’magazini Kupita Patsogolo kwa Sayansi ndipo adalimbikitsidwa mwachangu ndi mabungwe angapo, kuphatikiza Center for American Progress-chowonadi chomwe Byfield adawonetsa ngati chizindikiro chowopsa.

The 30 by 30 Initiative pambuyo pake idaphatikizidwa ndi Purezidenti Joe Biden ngati gawo la 2021 Presidential Executive Order on Tackling Climate Change Kunyumba ndi Kunja. Asayansi a zanyengo akulongosola kuti ndi ndondomeko yolimba mtima yoteteza zamoyo zosiyanasiyana komanso kuchepetsa kutentha kwa dziko lonse kuti zisatheretu. Mafelemu a Byfield 30 ndi 30 ngati “ndondomeko yapadziko lonse” yowopsa yomwe ingawononge zikhulupiriro zaku America ndi ufulu wa katundu, kubwereza chiphunzitso chabodza cha “Agenda 21” chomwe chimanamizira kuti United Nations ikufuna kukakamiza United States kuchotsa ufulu wazinthu zaumwini. Agenda 21 inali chikalata chanzeru chosamangirira chomwe Purezidenti wa Republican George HW Bush ndi atsogoleri ena adziko lapansi adasaina pamsonkhano wa United Nations wa 1992 wokhudza chilengedwe ndi chitukuko. Zaka makumi angapo kuchokera pamenepo, Southern Poverty Law Center malipoti kuti Agenda 21 yapotozedwa ndi magulu ngati John Birch Society mu “chiwembu chowononga ndi chachinyengo” chomwe chimatanthawuza kukakamiza “kugawanso chuma kwa chikhalidwe cha anthu / chikominisi.”

Zoposa 50 peresenti ya ndalama zomwe bungwe lopanda phindu lawononga zapita ku malipiro kuyambira 2017. Mu 2020, ASL inawononga ndalama zopitirira 94 peresenti pa malipiro a Byfields.

Pakadali pano, a Byfield apeza thandizo la maseneta osachepera 21 aku Republican ndi abwanamkubwa 15 aku Republican. Maboma ambiri m’maboma apereka zigamulo zotsutsana ndi 30 by 30 Initiative. Achita zonsezi pansi pa mbendera ya American Steward of Liberty, 501 (c) (3) yopanda phindu, ndikukweza ziwerengero zosachepera zisanu ndi chimodzi kuchokera kumagulu andalama akuda a Koch omwe amathandizidwa ndi abale. Malinga ndi zomwe zalembedwa pamisonkho, ndalama zopitirira 50 pa 100 zilizonse zomwe bungwe lopanda phindu lawononga zapita ku malipiro kuyambira 2017. Mu 2020, bungwe la ASL linagwiritsa ntchito ndalama zopitirira 94 peresenti pamalipiro a Byfields.

Accountable.US, gulu loyang’anira anthu osagwirizana ndi gulu lomwe limayang’anira momwe mabungwe amagwirira ntchito komanso zokonda zapadera, akukhulupirira kuti izi zitha kusokoneza malamulo osiyanasiyana oyendetsera ntchito zokopa zamagulu osapindula. Malinga ndi kafukufuku wawo, a Byfield’s achita kampeni ya Stop 30 by 30 popanda kulembetsa ngati olimbikitsa. Mkulu wa bungwe la American Steward of Liberty, Dan Byfield, ndi katswiri wakale wokopa anthu koma sananenepo zokopa anthu kuyambira 2006. Mu Meyi 2021, Accountable.US adasumira madandaulo ponena kuti ASL yakhala ikulimbikitsana mophwanya ntchito zake zopanda phindu udindo.

Poyankha kutsutsidwa kotereku, ASL idaphatikizanso tchati mu lipoti lawo lapachaka la 2021 lomwe likuwonetsa kuti 77 peresenti ya ndalama zonse zimayikidwa m’gulu la “ntchito zamapulogalamu” ndipo 3 peresenti yokha ndi yomwe imadziwika kuti “yolimbikitsa.” Atafunsidwa kuti apereke ndemanga, woimira adalongosola ASL ngati “gulu la maphunziro,” ndipo chochitika cha Texas Project monga gawo la “ntchito zawo za maphunziro.”

Webusaiti ya Internal Revenue Service amatanthauzira kukopa monga “kuyesera kukopa malamulo.” Kenako amatanthauzira malamulo ngati “zochita ndi Congress, nyumba yamalamulo ya boma, khonsolo iliyonse yam’deralo, kapena bungwe lolamulira lofananira, pankhani ya zochita, mabilu, zigamulo, kapena zinthu zina zofananira (monga chitsimikiziro chalamulo chaudindo wosankhidwa), kapena ndi anthu referendum, njira yovota, kusintha malamulo, kapena njira zina zofananira. Simaphatikizirapo zochita za akuluakulu, oweruza, kapena mabungwe oyang’anira.

“ASL sikupititsa patsogolo malamulo okhudza mafomu,” woimira adalemba kudzera pa imelo. “Timapereka mwayi kwa anthu maboma am’deralo, mabungwe, ndi aliyense amene akufuna kukhala ndi malingaliro otsutsana ndi 30 × 30 angagwiritse ntchito kunena zomwe ali nazo. Iyi ndi gawo la maphunziro athu. Fomu yachitsanzo si lamulo kapena lamulo. ”

Kusiyanitsa kumeneko, komabe, sikungapambane mayeso onunkhiza ngati ntchito zawo zina zamaphunziro zili ngati chochitika cha True Texas Project komwe Margaret Byfield adalankhula.

Malinga ndi akatswiri azamalamulo osachita phindu, kulimbikitsa “kusamvana” kuti avotere kapena kuperekedwa ndi akuluakulu osankhidwa m’maboma kudzaphatikizidwanso pakutanthauzira kokopa anthu. Panthawi yofotokozera Margaret ku True Texas Project, adadzitamandira chifukwa cha kupambana kwawo pakupangitsa zigawo kuti zipereke chigamulo. M’mbuyomu, adawatchula kuti “ziganizo zomwe tadutsa.”

Malamulo a IRS amati osapindula amaloledwa kukopa anthu malinga ngati kukopa ndi “gawo losafunikira” lazochita zawo. Ngati kukopa kutakhala “gawo lalikulu” lazochita zawo, osapindula akhoza kulipira chindapusa kapena kuthetsedwa kwa kusachita phindu. Koma akatswiri angapo azamalamulo osapindula adauza a Texas Observer kuti si nthawi zambiri zomwe zopanda phindu zimakumana ndi zovuta, makamaka chifukwa cha kuchotsedwa kwa bajeti ya IRS kuti ikwaniritse.

“Tsoka ilo, ndi malo otuwa kwambiri,” atero a Jordan Schreiber, mkulu wa mphamvu ndi chilengedwe ku Accountable.US. “Ndizovuta kwambiri kuyimba mlandu.”

Zomwe Byfield adachita ku True Texas Project zitha kuonedwa ngati zokopa anthu, atamupempha kuti achitepo kanthu kwa omvera pazachigamulo chomwe akufuna kuti mabungwe akhazikitse. Itha kuwonedwanso ngati ntchito yofalitsira ma disinformation.

Kagawo kakang’ono ka mawu a Byfield adangoyang’ana kwambiri “madera achipululu” otetezedwa ndi boma ku America West. Ananenanso kuti kuwonjezeka kwa moto wa nkhalango kumadzulo sikunayambike chifukwa cha kusintha kwa nyengo koma kusayendetsedwa bwino ndi boma. Adanenanso mfundo ziwiri zokhuza kuteteza zomwe zikuwoneka ngati kupotoza chowonadi.

Choyamba, Byfield adanena kuti madera a m’chipululu “ndi okhawo komanso oletsedwa … Ndipo odyetsa amakankhidwira kunja. Ndiye zomwe umathera ndi mafuta onse oyaka pansi pa nkhalangoyi. “

Kutsatsa

“Zimenezo ziribe chichirikizo chirichonse mu sayansi kapena ndondomeko,” anatero Gregory H. Aplet, wasayansi wamkulu wa zankhalango pa The Wilderness Society. “Kudyetserako sikuloledwa m’chipululu. Ndiye mfundo yoti abusa akuthamangitsidwa kuchipululu ndi misala. Sindikudziwa umboni uliwonse, paliponse womwe umasonyeza kuti adani ali ochuluka kwambiri m’chipululu kusiyana ndi kunja kwa chipululu. Lingaliro lakuti kubwezeretsedwa kwa zomera kuchokera ku malo odyetserako ziweto omwe akuthamangitsidwa m’chipululu kumayambitsa moto sikuchirikizidwa. Ngakhale zili choncho.”

Chachiwiri, Byfield adanenetsa kuti kusasamalidwa bwino kwa madera achipululu ndizomwe zimayambitsa moto wankhalango kufalikira kumalo achinsinsi. “Moto umayamba, chabwino, ndipo samazimitsa, chifukwa kuchita zimenezi sikungakhale kwachibadwa, choncho amalola moto kuyaka,” adatero Byfield. “Ndipo palibe amene amaloledwa kuyamba kumenyana nazo mpaka zitayamba kukhuthukira pa katundu wa anthu ena.”

“Anali a kuphunzira yomwe idatulutsidwa posachedwa yomwe idayang’ana zomwe amatcha moto wodutsa malire, moto womwe umayambira umwini wina ndikuwotcha malire kupita kwina, “Aplet adauza Wowonera. “Zinapezeka kuti ndi chiŵerengero cha anthu oposa atatu mpaka m’modzi, moto umayambira pa katundu waumwini ndikuyaka m’madera a anthu.”

Ngakhale kuti zonena za Byfield zinali zabodza zasayansi, omvera a True Texas Project adatsata mosamalitsa. Pamene Byfield adanena kuti Woimira Lauren Boebert, chowotcha chothandizira cha QAnon, anali m’modzi mwa othandizira oyamba a ASL’s Stop 30 ndi 30 khama, omvera “oohed” ndi “ahhed” pa dontho la dzina.

Woyimilira ku ASL adakankhira kumbuyo lingaliro loti iwo ndi otsutsa sayansi yanyengo, ndipo adati “zambiri zanyengo zanenedwa molakwika, chifukwa cha ndale, kusokeretsa anthu kuti akhulupirire kuti tiyenera kusintha kwambiri moyo wathu, kuphatikiza kuteteza kwamuyaya 30 peresenti yathu. maiko ndi nyanja zosagwiritsidwa ntchito ndi anthu.”

Epulo watha, Boebert adapita ku msonkhano wa ASL ndi andale ena angapo aku Republican. Ananenanso kuti boma la China likugula malo ambiri ku United States mothandizidwa ndi chipani cha Democratic Party.

“Ndimagwira ntchito ndi anthu tsiku ndi tsiku omwe amachitira nsanje [Chinese Communist Party]amene akufuna kutengera chitsanzo cha [Chinese Communist Party]ndipo zili bwino pomwe China ikugula malo athu kuno ku America,” adatero Boebert.

American Steward of Liberty adati iwo si otsutsa sayansi yanyengo, koma adati “zambiri zanyengo zanenedwa molakwika …

Ngakhale nzika zaku China zidagula malo ku United States, ndi a ochepa peresenti zokhudzana ndi zomwe zili ndi nzika zaku Europe kapena Canada, ndipo boma la federal lapezadi thandizo la bipartisan kuchepetsa kugulidwa kwa malo ndi nzika zaku China zomwe zakhudzidwa posachedwa ndi malonda a malo pafupi ndi malo ovuta, monga Laughlin Air Force Base ku Texas.

Kubwerera ku chochitika cha True Texas Project, funso loyamba la omvera kuchokera kwa bambo wachikulire kumbuyo kwa chipindacho likugwirizana ndi zomwe Boebert adanena pa Msonkhano wa ASL.

“Kodi izi, uh, ukudziwa kuti boma likuthandiza anthu aku China kugula malo, kodi ndi gawo la kugonjera kumeneku?” munthuyo anavutika kufunsa.

“Chifukwa chake, umu ndi momwe ndimayankhulira,” Byfield adayamba, kutanthauza kuti uwu ndi funso lodziwika bwino lomwe adaphunzira kuthawa popanda kudzudzula. “Sindikudziwa kuti China ili ndi gawo lotani pankhaniyi, koma ali ndi zolinga zawo,” adatero Byfield. “A China sakuyang’ana mpando patebulo, akufuna kukhala wamphamvu kwambiri. Koma zomwe ndimakonda kufotokoza kwa anthu ndi zolinga zapadziko lonse monga izi, muyenera kukumbukira zomwe zimalimbikitsa anthu. Pali zinthu zitatu: mphamvu, ndalama, ndi chifukwa. Ndipo muli nazo zonse zomwe zikuchitika pano. ”

Byfield anapitiliza kunena kuti onse okonda zachilengedwe ndi omwe sakhulupirira kuti kuli Mulungu. “Timapembedza mlengi, amapembedza chilengedwe,” adatero Byfield. “Kodi amalankhula kangati za Mayi Earth? Lingaliro la ife kukhala ndi ulamuliro pa dziko ndi chilengedwe, iwo sagwirizana nazo zimenezo.”

M’mbuyomu, Byfield sanasungidwebe kwambiri zikafika pamutu waku China. Mu 2021, “adafufuza” zonena kuti “anthu aku China” adawononga ndalama zokwana $ 100 miliyoni paminda. Adachita izi podutsa pafamu yapayekha ndikuwerengera nyumba zokulirapo ndi Trent Loos, munthu wamapiko akumanja pawailesi komanso wogulitsa chiwembu yemwe nthawi zina amakhala ngati mneneri wa American Stewards of Liberty.

Ngakhale amakhala ku Texas, kupambana kwakukulu kwa ASL pakupeza maboma kuti avotere pazosankha zawo zakhala kunja kwa boma. Madera asanu ndi awiri okha a Texas adalowa nawo kutsutsa kwa 30 ndi 30. Koma ndizomwe a Byfield akuyembekeza kusintha mothandizidwa ndi magulu monga True Texas Project.

“Ali ndi malo ochepa kwambiri ku Texas,” adatero Byfield modandaula kwa omvera a True Texas Project. “Ndipo Texas ingakhale mwayi waukulu kwa iwo.”
