Throughout January, environmental groups and Democrats criticized the Trump administration for proceeding with plans for the sale despite the shutdown.

“One of the most striking features” of the shutdown, House Democrats wrote in a Jan. 16 letter to acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, “is the way the administration has bent over backward to ensure that the pain of the shutdown falls only on ordinary Americans and the environment, and not on the oil and gas industry.”

U.S. Rep. Deb Haaland, D-N.M., chairwoman of the House Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands, said Thursday that the Trump administration failed to consult with Native Americans on the lease sale during the government shutdown.

“The administration is proposing to lease indigenous lands sacred to our people,” said Haaland, a member of Laguna Pueblo. “I have long opposed drilling in this area, as has the All Pueblo Council of Governors, who I met with today.”

Democrats said the administration gave the oil and gas industry special treatment during the shutdown by classifying certain Interior Department officials involved in lease sales as essential personnel.

What a surprise, a shutdown that was a smoke screen for Trump to make good on some more of the pay backs to those deep pockets he promise he didn't need/use ,,,,I am so tired of this farce called Trumps Administration .

It won't get any better:
Interior Secretary nomination

a move that puts a former oil lobbyist on track to take over the Interior Department.

Chuck Schumer, the Senate’s Democratic leader, delivered a blistering criticism of Trump’s choice on Monday night. “David Bernhardt might be the most ethically-challenged, special-interest-driven nominee the president could have selected for this position – and that’s saying something, considering he would be following former Secretary Ryan Zinke,” Schumer said in a statement. “Mr. Bernhardt’s nomination is a serious threat to our nation’s public lands, wildlife and natural resources.”

I dislike Trump and his policies and practices of appointing the lobbyists for the coal companies as head of EPA , or two of his golfing buddies who never done a day in the military as heads of military spending to name a couple, and now this. I'd love to be able to say as Americans we ain't have any of it. But he's doing it and we're b****ing amongst our selves about him doing it .
How much more of this sort of' policy' does he gotta do before he's stopped. (I'm just asking in general not pointing at you for an answer .) Are those elected lawmakers in Washington DC deaf,dumb and scared out of their wits ??

Trump thinks that the parks, forests and woodlands of the USA are a beautiful women who should be F__ked as often as possible.

He'll be gone in 2 to 6 years... we might be able to recover from some of the damage to our parks, forests and woodlands in 50 or 100+ years.

This is exciting news. It’s a lot better for the United States to be energy independent versus purchasing oil from countries outside United States

No , I disagree . What would be exciting is if we were phasing out fossil fuels while phasing in cleaner more environment friendly power sources. But the fossil fuel big wigs aren't done making money yet . So no excitement yet.

You can disagree that’s OK. But it’s better for Americans to use local oil versus foreign oil

Yup, I prefer my heroin to be made in the USA. That way I know a few fences won’t stop delivery. I get cranky when my shipment is late.

Do we have the wherewithal to make our own heroin ? Isn't there a shortage of huge poppy fields on our part of the planet ?

I thought I heard somewhere that it is illegal to grow white poppies in the US.
Or maybe it's a particular strain of white poppy.
