Ryan Zinke Makes Trump Look Sane

September 26, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Y’all, Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke is head clown at a goat rodeo.

Listen to this stuff.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said Monday that nearly one-third of employees at his department are not loyal to him and President Donald Trump, adding that he is working to change the department’s regulatory culture to be more business friendly.

Uh, goofy me.  I thought they were supposed to be loyal to the United States of Damn America.  You know, unlike Zinke and Trump.

And then you’d think they were a damn football team.

Zinke, a former Navy SEAL, said he knew when he took over the 70,000-employee department in March that, “I got 30 percent of the crew that’s not loyal to the flag.”

Loyal to the flag? Well hell’s bells, I certainly want people loyal to a piece of cloth running my government.  I dunno, I think that if you put a flag on Trump’s ample rump, they might salute that.

Zinke’s comments echo complaints by some White House allies that a permanent, “deep state” in Washington has sabotaged Trump’s efforts to remake the government.

Well, thank God, because Zinke wants to make “huge” changes to the Interior Department that include the endangered species act, drilling permits, and the national park system.  In short, he wants a government run by the petrochemical industry.

And then ….

Zinke also offered a quirky defense of hydraulic fracturing, a drilling technique also known as fracking that has led to a years-long energy boom in the U.S., with sharply increased production of oil and natural gas.

“Fracking is proof that God’s got a good sense of humor and he loves us,” Zinke said without explanation.

Because there ain’t no explaining crap like that.

  1. So much for the former Navy Seal wanting accountability for his people. I guess the missing DOI staff in Puerto Rico are not loyal to him so they are expendable. As*&#!e.

  2. “Fracking is proof that God’s got a good sense of humor and he loves us,”

    Somebody has been sparking the fumes from a water tap in Wyoming, and huffing him some hydrocarbon exhaust.

  3. Hm. The reincarnation of James Watt, the previous Secritary of the Interior who wanted to sell off protected lands to logging, mining, and petrochemical industries. After all, what’s a national park without strip mining, miles and miles of clear cuts, and drill rigs/massive oil spills and pipelines?

  4. Ryan, when we say “protect the weasel” we do NOT mean you. DOI is a bureaucracy designed to serve we the people as custodians of the land we love, not you and your dotard pResident cohort. Dude, seriously, you are too st00pid to serve as a beacon bombing site, although the thought has a schadenfreude degree of satisfaction.

  5. Back in 1969 I swore an oath to defend the Constitution and the United States.
    Tricky Dick was not mentioned.

  6. I thought it wuz Ole Ben Franklin who postulated that rain stored in grapes which eventually becomes wine was the “constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy.”

    OTOH, I believe that same about the efforts of the good folks at Guinness in Dublin.

  7. motherjones'cat says:

    Zinke just installed the “Big Buck Hunter Pro” arcade game in the Interior Department’s cafeteria. I guess the employees who play the game are the loyal employees and everybody else is a bum.


  8. He’s just unhappy that it’s taking so long to turn our national public treasures over to the oil, gas, coal, mining, logging, and ranching industries. There used to be a connection between “conservative” and “conservation”– ask Teddy Roosevelt to explain it to you– but now it’s “Grab everything you can and turn it into money real fast,” and never mind if you leave behind a moonscape, a bunch of sick people, and no animals or plants that aren’t making dollars for you.

    I hate these people. I really hate them.

    Micr, the version I prefer is “Chocolate is proof that the Goddess wants us to be happy.”

    I’d say Donnie is the proof that God has sense of humor. Granted, it’s a sick sense of humor, but…

  10. Marcia in CO says:

    Zinke, in cahoots with the BLM, is looking to kill off ALL of our wild mustangs and burros, as well. They want to send them to slaughter and export the meat to the countries that eat horsemeat! I think Trump should have a nice juicy horse steak and choke on it!!

  11. JJ Herownself reminds us,….” Uh, goofy me. I thought they were supposed to be loyal to the United States of Damn America.”

    Thanks for putting it back into perspective. How can we remind the administration to consult the CONSTITUTION before they say and do stupid stuff. Sounds like a job for a well qualified person, or just one that has read the Constitution.

  12. He appears to be another teeny-weinie gun hugger who is upset that at least 30% of the employees support proper management principals, with the puffed-up ego of many used-to-be’s

  13. e platypus onion says:

    Oklahoma says fracking is damaging vertical wells and they are mad as hell about it. Be neat to seat oilman against oilman in a real shootout.

  14. If God has a sense of humor, it’s pretty sadistic humor. He stuck us with Trump and his cabinet of bandits, bad guys and bumble butts.

    I wonder what version of the Bible these guys are reading. Is there some secret rightwing crackpot version circulating underground? Is it written in secret code that only wingers understand?

  15. Somewhere in that reduction of national park lands, I think Drumpf has thoughts of a resort/golf course.

  16. easttxdem:
    You’ve heard of Acts of the Apostles? Well apparently repugnantcans’ version of the King James bible has a book called Acts of the Apostates. Not sure which king commissioned that version, but whoever did it was a douchebag.

  17. Zinke no think-ee. But sure is stink-ee.

  18. Inspector Cluseau: Have you a leesance for your Zinky?

  19. Laws. Those pesky laws. You try repealing them. You try ignoring them. You try underfunding enforcement. You try all of the above. And still those damn employees want to follow and enforce the laws…
