Obama is finally almost done being the president. Despite barely getting anything accomplished during his presidency he has managed to do a lot of harm in his final few weeks. He made a devastating Israel deal with the UN, he’s made horrible Russian sanctions for an unproven Russian interference in our election, and he recently claimed that 1.35 million acres of land was government land.
The land that Obama took included the Bears Ears National Monument. Senator Mike Lee was furious that Obama took this land and wrote a harsh commentary against Obama. “When I questioned Interior Secretary Sally Jewell at her confirmation hearing, she promised me President Barack Obama would not designate a national monument unless there was widespread support from the local population,” started Mike Lee.
“Unfortunately, Obama ignored that promise and designated a monument in San Juan County yesterday. But this is no time despair. This is a time to double our efforts and make San Juan County great again. I pledge to you today that I will do everything I can to work with Congress and the incoming Trump administration to undo this monument designation,” he wrote.
“But I am not going to stop there. I am then going to do what I can to repeal the Antiquities Act so that future President Obamas can not do this to rural communities ever again,” he continued.
“But I am not going to stop there. I am then going to continue our fight to return power back to the American people. Everyone suffers when we allow power to accumulate in the hands of the few. This is not the end. This is just the beginning. We will fight this battle together, and we will win,” he wrote. How much more damage can Obama cause in his final weeks?
