Obamas State Department is giving away seven strategic, resource-laden Alaskan islands to the Russians. Yes, to the Putin regime in the Kremlin. The seven endangered 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 seabeds 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 President Obama or Secretary 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 doesnt seem to care.

IMPEACH that usurping SOB and hang him for treason!
Euwww, oil is s-o-o-o 20th century.
As President I can create all the wind power needed to run a fair and equal economy.
If these islands belong to Alaska now, where in the Constitution does the fedgov get the power to dispose of them and give them to a foreign power?
This OUGHT to be Obama’s waterloo moment, but I have this feeling it won’t be.
We are now the SOMNAMBULENT NATION, sleepwalking through our own destruction, a nightmare we seem unwilling to awake from.
OK, this is like the 7th time it has been posted, and it is very misleading.
The Department of State has NEVER recognized any claim on these islands, and one of them was home to a small Soviet Colony from 1926 onward, as well as a small Soviet Airbase, and Early Warning Radar site in to the late 70’s.
These are Russia’s, already ceded by a treaty the Russians haven’t approved, for something like 20 years.
No, it won’t be. The fools, idoits,American haters, and parasites now outnumber the sane people and producers. And they love and worship him. Their only critism of him is that he isn’t moving fast enough to destroy the United States.
This is no surprise! We are in the midst of a complete commie takeover. If Bam gets reelected the move will be to remove the two term restriction for POTUS. Our children and grandchildren will be viewing an American flag with a hammer & sickle on it . This coming after a return to the welfare state, attacks on the 1st and 2nd amendment, refusal to drill to enhance the economy and on and on.
What Constitution? obama threw the Constitution out the window the day he assumed power.
And we're worried about George Snuffleupagus's access to condoms?
I couldn’t agree more. And all the while the Republicans in the House and Senate will hide in the tall grass and the candidates will endlessly debate gay marriage and religion. Who’s really to balme, Obama or our inability to mount any kind of attack on him?
SARAH WHERE ARE YOU, BRING IT TO LIGHT!!!!
