Skip to comments.Obama State Department set to cede oil-rich Alaska islands to Russia

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.
Might as well give Russia & China a Grant Deed to the USA as “tenants-in-common”
PING to Obama treason. Gross Alaska snub.
I’m almost afraid to click on these links. It’s one nightmare after the next.
This myth made it to the Washington Times?
We’ve been reading about it Free Republic since the mid-years of George Bush.
Good GOD Almighty, is there NOONE on our side with the balls to go after the Regime on this kind of stuff??? Treason if I ever saw it.
Paging Governor Sarah Palin. Wait....she’s not governor anymore. Rats!!
54’ 40 or Fight!!!
The problem is that now , we have an idiot in the oval orifice who might just do it.
A trade to O’s communist cousins for access to Afghanistan through Azerbaijan?
Can it be done without an act of Congress? Are the islands inhabited by US citizens?
Quietly, State Dept. Turns Over American Islands to Russia, Others

Posted lots of other times as well.
Look at the Map folks! These islands really never belonged to us anyway! This is just WND nonsense.
Seeing the location, I do not see how we could have claimed them from the beginning.
Sure, but it hasn’t appeared since way last month. ;’)
2) The U.S. has never actually claimed the islands. Russia claimed the islands back under the Tzars.
3) The treaty on the maritime border was negotiated in 1990 and ratified by the Senate and signed by President Bush in 1991.
A map of the islands:
Where is the “Not this $**t again” icon with the guy slapping his head? LOL
Don’t count her out.
