Obama Donates 7 Alaskan
Islands to Putin for Zero Dollars
This is what our president Obama has done in 2012 for
America so far this year. This was just sent to
me, and got very little press to keep it unknown from
the American public. Please read the following
to see what is happening. HOW CAN THIS BE
Is there a "REST OF THE STORY?"
This article on Feb. 16, 2012 appears in very few
places. Apparently, the regular "professional
reporters" consider Obama giving away islands belonging
to Alaska and part of the United States as no big
deal. Obama is giving these islands to Russia for
free, no cost, $zero money or any other consideration.
Guess what? The state legislature in Alaska (still one
of our 50 states) voted several times in opposition
to THE GIVEAWAY! The islands have billions of
barrels of OIL and Obama could let oil companies lease
parts of the islands and start drilling for MORE
OIL!! Should you suspect Obama was trying to sneak
Obama's State Department is giving away seven strategic,
resource-laden Alaskan islands to the Russians.
Yes, to the Putin regime in the Kremlin. The seven
islands in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea include one
the size of Rhode Island and Delaware combined.
The Russians are also to get the tens of thousands of
square miles of oil-rich seabed's surrounding the
islands. The Department of Interior estimates
billions of barrels of oil are at stake.
The State Department has undertaken the giveaway in the
guise of a maritime boundary agreement between Alaska
and Siberia. Astoundingly, our federal government
itself drew the line to put these seven Alaskan
islands on the Russian side, but as an executive
agreement, it could be reversed with the stroke of a pen
by Pres. Obama or Sec. Clinton. The agreement was
negotiated in total secrecy! The State of
not allowed to participate in the negotiations, nor
was the public given any opportunity for comment.
This is despite the fact the Alaskan Legislature has
passed resolutions of opposition - but the State
Department doesn't seem to care.
The imperiled Arctic Ocean islands include Wrangel,
Bennett, Jeannette and Henrietta. Wrangel became
American in 1881 with the landing of the U.S. Revenue
Marine ship Thomas Corwin. The landing party
included the famed naturalist John Muir. It is
3,000 square miles in size.
Northwest of Wrangel are the DeLong Islands, named for
George Washington DeLong, the captain of USS
Jeannette. Also in 1881, he discovered and claimed
these three islands for the United States. He
named them for the voyage co-sponsor, New York
Citynewspaper publisher James Gordon Bennett. The
ship's crew received a hero's welcome back in
Washington, and Congress awarded them gold medals.
In the Bering Sea at the far west end of the Aleutian
chain are Copper Island, Sea Lion Rock and Sea Otter
Rock. They were ceded to the U.S. in Seward's 1867
treaty with Russia.
Now is the time for the Obama administration to stand up
for U.S. and Alaskan rights and invaluable
resources. The State Department's maritime
agreement is a loser - it gives us nothing in return for
giving up Alaska's sovereign territory and invaluable
resources. We won the Cold War and should start
acting like it. Also see Links 1 and 2 below:
