Obama Donates 7 Alaska Islands to Putin forZero DollarsThis is what our beloved 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. Why is he getting away with all of this?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 this by...?
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 ofRhode 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 Alaska was not allowed to participate in the negotiations, nor was the public given any opportunity for comment. This is despite the fact the Alaska 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 Link 1,2 belowAnd you can "Google" many more links with "Alaska island giveaway"
