National Parks Gone Rogue

After the National Parks tweeted the two comparison photos of the inaugurations between trump and Obama, trump shut down the National Parks twitter account, preventing them from posting any climate information or parks information.

Yesterday, the National Parks opened a different twitter account @BadlandsNatlPark and began tweeting climate change data at 11:30 am. By 5:00 pm the informational tweets had been removed and an official advised that the account had been compromised by a former employee (fired over the photo?).

While the main National Parks Service Twitter account is now back up and tweeting, its posts since the temporary halt at that agency have remained largely innocuous: benign tweets about new research libraries, sled dogs in Denali and the motivational power of the mountains. Those posts seem certain not to rub the Trump administration the wrong way. Badlands’ posts on the carbon cycle and climate change, however, seem to have proven otherwise.


National Parks Service

In a bold move at 7pm last night, another twitter account was opened, @AltUSNatlParkService, re-posting all the removed climate tweets. Within 12 hours they had over 80,000 followers. Their opening tweet:

Can't wait for President Trump to call us FAKE NEWS.

You can take our official twitter, but you'll never take our free time!

Personally, I commend whoever's responsible for standing up for freedom of speech and information.

exactly the scenario that trump has no control over...

everyoner kn nows it's alm ost impossible to fire a civil servant.... and trump is at a loss to silence these rogues....( patriots is another name for them....)


THIS IS THE USA....

not communist Russia or china.......

where freedom of the press...and speech is the law of the constitution.....

and the pres.... only has as much power as congress gives him....

(yes..I KNOW....there are certain exceptions..... but he cannot fire everyone.....and everyone is not supporting him.....in fact.... the majority do not.....


and the military will not follow his insane orders.....

but instead.... decide to invoke martial law if he tries to rule as a dictator...


thanks a lot you idiot republicans.... may you WAKE UP and smell his stink....

before the military takes over.....

So far, Trump has removed all reference to global warming from the White House website. He has also had all pages in languages other than English taken down.

The FLOTUS website was taken down over the weekend for a short time, because some one on Melania's staff uploaded a link to the sale of her jewelry line on QVC.

These people are a lovely combination of dangerous and tacky.

and..Ignorant....

most people KNOW that as first lady.... she cannot profit by her official standing....


but I excuse her ignorance... as she has had trump for an example.....

I prophesize.. that she will turn against him... and nail his coffin shut....( meaning..he will be stripped of his power..and placed in jail... based on her testimony.....

as...

trump has spread himself too thin..... and cannot control his entourage.... and she is not the type that will shut herself up in a tower.....

besides.... he mothering instinct is stronger than her support for trump....

and she will blame trump for putting Barron in harms way....

betting she has her own name for him too.....the name ..Barron is so......tacky....so....trump..... so.....telling

It is hard to believe that the national Park Employees can be so stupid. They know where their budgeting and funding come from. And they are supposed to know about animals, and avoiding injuries from animals.

They are not just poking the cat. They are poking the tiger.

AND....

that is why they are true patriots...

you do realize that you are following the rethuglican playbook...

vvvvvvvv


siding with those who make you prosper and to hell with what's right, legal...

and what is written in the constitution....

SOME of us look for the round table of King Aurthur.... and not the land of mordor....

long live Camelot.....

National parks.... are not the place for politics....

but sanctuaries of peace.....

He wants to make them oil drilling and mining sites.

She's on easy street now and will likely say anything (even if it I someone else' speech)

I totally agree.

The park service has no business using the Park Service as a platform for commenting on national policy. It is their job to run National Parks, not harass the Administrative Branch of government.

They got out of line, and got slapped on the knuckles. If they persist, they will take a hit to the budget.

As a frequent user of National Parks, i would not like the Park Service to suffer for the misdeeds of a few employees who fail to separate workplace behavior from personal politics. In time we will see the Twitter restrictions removed, and the few bad apples tossed out of the barrel.

They are NATIONAL Parks and should be able to discuss freely ALL situations that
could affect or take place in their parks, buildings and monuments.
This is America, not Russia (yet).
If Trump is too thin skinned to handle the truth,
he should seek a private industrial job, not a government position.

The National Parks are just that National Parks. I do not want to go on a parks site and get an eye full of political junk. I can do that here. If I go onto a parks site I want to know what is going on within the park only. I remember going to Yosemite and camping with my parents as a child and didn't have to worry or listen to political garbage. You listened to creeks and birds and waterfalls and the smell of clean air and campfires and hot dogs and marshmellows cooking. There was horseback riding and swimming and hiking and other children to explore with. When did National Parks get so political? I am for free speech I give my own enough but these parks need to make these parks free from all the political agenda. There is a time and a place for everything. What you do on your time is one thing but when I go onto a National Park that is another that is my time.

um... there wasn't a whole lot of political stuff.
There was however, pictures of the (small) 'crowd' at Trump's inauguration
and the much larger crowd at Obama's inauguration.
That's it.
Seeing how both inaugurations took place on grounds controlled by parks & monuments, it was appropriate.

From what I heard about this, the Trump pic was taken roughly three hours before the inauguration. Knowing how dishonest the left wing media is, I can honestly see them doing this since they have a history of pulling these kinds of tricks, and their number one goal right now is to continue to try to delegitimize Trump. What they actually do however is delegitimize and discredit themselves by doing this kind of crap!

Most fake news comes from the left!

prove it.....

with the 100,000 people in attendance..... there must be more photos...

and trump would even pay handsomely for photo shopped ones.... in fact... he did use fake photos.....in the early reports....( why the real ones surfaced....)

BUT...really.... 3 hours before he speaks is nothing...
I know people who stood in a line for 7 days to see the rolling stones in concert....

and remember.... even Woodstock out performed his party....

where Obama's.... came pretty close to being equal....

big "L" for you and trump.....

Rogue NPS, EPA, NASA, FDA, CDC,HHS,NIH & USDA twitter accounts crop up overnight

We now live in a time when scientists & park rangers are gagged by the White House from directly speaking to the public or mainstream media - and instead have to rely on unofficial, "rogue" twitter accounts to get their message out.
