President Obama only has a few weeks left in office, so he might be starting to slack off in some areas … but not when it comes to the sanctioned murder of our majestic bald eagles.
Obama administration finalizes rule that permits wind companies to kill thousands of bald eagles. https://t.co/fYs5WefI8T

This week, the Obama Administration finalized a new rule that exempts wind turbine operators from federal laws prohibiting the killing of protected species such as bald and golden eagles. Under the rule, the exemption would last for up to 30 years, and would allow wind power providers to kill or injure up to 4,200 bald eagles per year, almost four times the existing limit.
Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe described the new rule as part of the Obama administration’s “comprehensive approach to eagle conservation and demonstrating the Service’s longstanding commitment to bald and golden eagles, responsible industry operations, and the interests of the American people.”
Under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, it is a federal crime to kill or harm the majestic winged creatures — unless exempted under some rule invented to promote “clean” energy. Experts estimate that hundreds of bald and golden eagles are killed by wind turbines every year.
That’s hardly the only troublesome aspects of Obama’s maniacal pro-wind agenda. According to at least one analysis, wind turbines are almost certainly a front for a secret military program to harness wind power and engineer hurricanes out of thin air.
