“With respect to settlements, the President was very clear when Prime Minister Netanyahu was here. He wants to see a stop to settlements – not some settlements, not outposts, not natural growth exceptions. We think it is in the best interests of the effort that we are engaged in that settlement expansion cease. That is our position. That is what we have communicated very clearly, not only to the Israelis but to the Palestinians and others. And we intend to press that point.”Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton in a joint press conference with Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Ali Aboul Gheit – May 28, 2009“And yes, I underscored the longstanding American policy that does not accept the legitimacy of continued settlements.”Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton at AIPAC – March 22, 2009“First, we want to see a stop to settlement construction, additions, natural growth – any kind of settlement activity. That is what the President has called for.”
Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton in an interview with Abderrahim Foukara of Al Jazeera – May 19, 2009“…Settlements have to be stopped in order for us to move forward. That’s a difficult issue. I recognize that, but it’s an important one and it has to be addressed.”
President Barack Obama in a press conference with Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel – May 18, 2009
Sure you can trust the Government!! Go ask an Indian!!!!
Starting with the Louisiana Purchase about 1816. We remember other Land & territorial issues throughout our history.
The wild west era of us brutally and violently forcing Tribes off their ancestral lands & forced into submissive Agenda 21 style living
The evolution of Federal energy policy from public land management contributed greatly to the major Congressional activities beginning with the second half of the 20th century. Responsibility had been divided, with the Department of the Interior responsible for oil, natural gas and coal policy, and the Atomic Energy Commission in charge of nuclear energy.
There was a similar evolution starting with the Committee’s concern with national parks and wilderness areas that, among other things, resulted in the committee developing and ultimately reporting the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, which required a detailed analysis of all “major Federal actions that significantly affect the quality of the human environment.”
Beginning in the 1970’s, a new concept of environmental management came to be an accepted Federal policy concern. A Council on Environmental Quality was established to provide the President with objective advice and comprehensive overview of the fragmented Federal jurisdiction. An annual environmental quality report was required to be submitted to the Congress.
In the first Session of the 80th Congress (1947), the Committee acquired the jurisdiction of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. Certain islands in Micronesia which had been under Japanese mandate from the League of Nations were placed under United States administration by the United Nations after World War II. Although not a United States territory, administration of the Trust Territory was entrusted to the United States in 1947 to carry out its rehabilitation and development. Under this relationship, the Trust Territory was divided into four separate entities with which separate relationships have evolved: the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, a U.S. territory; the Republic of Palau, a continuing Trust Territory; and the Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of the Marshall Islands, “freely associated” independent states

Presidential Candidate BERNIE SANDERS comments on Officer involved deaths in America and some advice on Officer Accountability. Even the FBI stated they are not keeping track as good as the Guardian.com is. And that we need better accountability of officer involved shootings.
The media is too bias to tell us this its like they are all too busy sucking up to all the personalities trending these days.

Dateline 2012 Ballot: California’s controversial 3 strikes law went back to voters after 20 years of appeals, scrutiny, and non-violent felons being railroaded by Ludacris officials who see the law as a “quick fix” to reduce crime statistics. Not just violent crimes.
Californian’s know this controversial law has accomplished little. Our state now locks up petty thieves, homeless, drug addicts, veterans, and gang members for life.
Has the 3 strikes law ever been applied to females? We don’t know.
Steal a piece of pizza in California and your life and your liberty are taken from you. Not to mention you will never be free again and you will die behind bars.
In 96 it cost the state $1,500.00 a day to house 1 inmate behind bars. The cost to house 3 striker inmates after 20 years must be staggering . It has only been 20 years since voters approved the ballot measure spearheaded by a father whos daughter,
Polly Klaas was taken from a slumber party and brutally beaten, raped and murdered.
These are my neighbors. And Rosamond is the border town between Los Angeles County and Kern County neighboring Palmdale/Lancaster – The Antelope Valley.
These photos are from the saddest project I ever worked on, the Rosamond childhood cancer cluster. I shot this over several months in 1988. There were two cancer clusters in Kern County at the time. The other was in McFarland, and Henry Barrios worked on that one. Probably because of the political clout and organizing abilities of the United Farm Workers, McFarland received most of the national media attention. But out in the desert, the people of Rosamond found themselves confronting an environmental horror of epic proportions: In a 10-year period, 9 children had come down with cancer, most of them with an extremely rare brain cancer called medullablastoma. The cancer was so rare that one health official said if two cases appeared in a city the size of Los Angeles in the same time period, officials would have considered it cause for alarm. Rosamond had 3,500 residents at the…

As a voter in a century of:
- shoddy complacency
- sloth & vice
- sub standard Wages
Where mind control seems a dismal truth we try to throw away.
But it sounds more appealing as the dreary days and nights pass us by

Or how bout we all act like the adults here and not vote for anybody for President.If you don’t like the candidates running for office. Don’t you think it is too important of a position just to vote for whoever is running in your chosen party?
What does it mean to be a Democrat? A Republican? A Liberal? An Independent?
A Gnostic? Agnostic? Adventist? Member of Scientology?
What does it mean to be 1 or more of these “political” “Religious” brands?
Those amongst us humans who are racist or even just a little prejudice may you forever remain clueless about what it means to be a part of anything greater than your self. The right to gather and protest against an government acting as in Anarchy is our 1st amendment right to do so.
If you can’t get the 1st one right then how can I hope you can get any of the harder ones right. they are suppose to be self explanatory the basic GOD given principals of morality and ethics. if you don’t get the 1st one right you sure as hell have to be outside of the image and likeness of GOD. you are an enemy that is HATE! For moralitys sake we will just call you ALIENS.
I love taking photos of everything. Except everyone in the family hates theirs taken.
I secretly go around taking photos of inanimate objects for weeks. They get tired of hiding from the camera when I never take their picture just so I can when it is celebration time without their faceless bodies acting camera shy.
37 lies Americans tell themselves to avoid confronting reality
It is the empathy that we subliminally give into that is the real mental health issue, crime, biblical apocalypse, Y2K, end of the world.
Why do you think it is called REVELATIONS instead of Apocalypse or Armageddon.
it is only common sense with empathy on the rise; Murder, Violence and high crimes become nothing more than a 5 second time filler on the news. We either block it out, look the other way, or change the channel. In this case we aren’t doing it because we are immortal God like diety. We are doing it because we are sick of hearing all the pessemistic propaganda of evil on the news.
Look at the empathy in sports. You are only Michael Jordan famous as an athlete if you act unsportsmanlike or hit your girlfriend on hidden camera. Then you are the talk of the town. (There is no longer a toast of the town famous)
Empathy exists when anyone with video being less than “average Human” gives Joe neighbor his 15 minutes of fame.
Jesus Christ I wish SATAN would get here already I am bored and tired of waiting for this sooner than later worlds end. When will all these idiots, and cowards and pessemisim in News Propagandists (who church it all away every Sunday) go away with you.?
I can’t wait to watch SATAN propaganda at the end of the world. I heard it in a class all its own and really really funny because its contains the most truth for propaganda standards.
If it is debate able then it becomes Non-negotiable.
This is also called “No Contest”
Since 2002 it means Propaganda for our Empathy
You have no shame and we need empathy like you need more arrogance
Now this is just plain weird okay! Not strange, “Weird”
Indifference remains the day
Had I video taped this funhouse experience it becomes self explanatory.
Remember the house of mirrors as a kid, you go in and you bump into walls because they are clear and then the different mirrors that twist and reshape your body.
Now look at the face my son is making. He looks a bit worried.
When we came out of the funhouse he was feeling his head and checking his body to make sure he was still Decklen. Then wanted to go back in the house of mirrors. to really enjoy this “Magical” abode that changes your body and makes your head like Frankensteins.
Afterward he kept asking me if he had something on his face. I kept reassuring him that he looked just fine just like the Decklen I know and love.
I never experienced my Daredevil afraid of anything.
When you believe in the unknown (Magic) you realize the numbness of fear.
I no longer believe fear and trembling in GOD is a sacred or natural thing to do. More like Blasphemy of GOD that should bring us shame for doing so. After this experience with my youngest son at a traveling carnival for our towns “festival of turtles.”
I really am impressed with Vlad Putin’s statement via Obama. I appreciate the respect he is showing America seated in a casual friend like manner with a nice suit. and a written and well prepared statement of importance. Remember our President has advisors wipe his butt for him if he so wants and secret service 24/7 so he is never alone.
We as Americans must stop our Presumptiousness and Assuming Communist Russia has their own butt wiper and speech writer like our American President. He don’t. Just by the way he appears and the papers in his hand that isn’t some doodling he wants us to believe he put alot of thought and effort into his words and why should we believe otherwise. He makes a damn good impression to the world and is very dignified. while our President makes the leader of China pay for his opinion he freely expressed re: American President “He reminds the leader of China of a “Stressed Out Monkey.” and Obama sanctions China for his comment. Our President is the most embarrassing thing American’s voted to represent us internationally. Let alone needed to ring in the new millennium. future generations will read & find Obama as hysterical as I do. What were we thinking and how did Obama as President Happen not just once. (An erogenous mistake) but it happened again? successively.
8 years we forced world leaders to put up with a hysterical President. OMG we will be known as the generation of fools.
President loves the “WORLD LEADER” title and Santions the leader of China for his Opinion of our President the guy is hysterical obviously . If not Hysterical then Obama is as a world leader more oppressive a conqueror than the “Scourge of China, KHAN.” and he conquered his own people not just the rest of the world.
FREEDOM OF OPINION isn’t allotted the leader of China because it cost him. You just don’t go around and sanction world leaders for them sharing freely and honestly their opinion. Expressing himself. WOW What a Poser President Obama be.

In honor of Veterans’ Day, we bring you a compelling story of China Lake, which answers the intriguing question, why would the U.S. Navy build a secret weapons base in the middle of the Mojave Desert? (Answer: It was the least likely place the enemy would look for a naval base!)
Nothing is more enjoyable than reading a well-written history book that brings to light the contributions of a highly secretive organization. Add in dozens of previously unpublished photographs and fascinating anecdotes of American technological innovation and ingenuity, and you have a real winner! Such is the case with the new fact and photo-filled publication about the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division or NAWCWD, entitled Arming the Fleet 1943-2011: Providing Our Warfighters the Decisive Advantage. The weapons systems developed by NAWCWD in China Lake have served generations of service members since World War…

The most controversial of all our liberties.
Back in the the roaring 20’s you could own a gun but it was a crime to drink beer.
Imagine if prohibition came to our neighborhoods in the form of our right to bear arms? Would we revolt? become civil rights activists?
More young black adults are killed by police excessive force in the 20th century after the 90’s saw all kinds of new technology for police to arm themselves with equipment that would allow them to subdue a criminal without lethal force – Firing their guns.
They were also armed with bullet proof vests. What sort of Hypocrisy is this? I am so outraged at all the murder by our local law enforcement protected under the power of our Justice system. Maybe if we take away all the vests, tasers, bean bags, air guns, batons and leave them feeling naked again like in the 80’s the hypocrites will quit their jobs. I have never seen a hypocrite naked. No longer will they feel invincible to any and all injustices especially their own.
They can keep their guns for their own protection against the bad guys. And once again they will be more like us average citizens. No non lethal submissiveness and bullet proof delusions of grandeur.
How else do they think they will earn the peoples respect once again. Against all odds
The 20th century where priests are the pedophiles and cops are the murderers.
What could possibly go wrong next? Wait and see…. The media will be sure to
over report whatever it is.
Who wants to be cut off in an emergency
Two-way radio communication may seem like a thing of the past with smart phones and the availability of more advanced technology. However, with the recent frequency of natural disasters, storms, and other emergency situations, more attention is being paid to radios as a reliable form of communication and a possible back-up communication option, including amateur radio operators.

For example, the Times of Indiareports that the recent monsoon flooding disaster in the northern India state of Uttarakhand in July 2013 has prompted officials in other flood-prone regions to establish Amateur Radio facilities to provide emergency communication.
What are two-way radios and how do they work?

wow what a research project
Many years ago I read “Ideas Die Hard,” a memorable story (at least to me) by Isaac Asimov. In the story, a crew of astronauts is on a flight to the moon under very tense circumstances. They go too far and see the dark side of the moon. SPOILER AHEAD: When they view the dark side, it’s a gigantic wood-and-paper stage set, the sight of which causes the crew to have a collective mental breakdown. At the end of the story, it’s revealed that the flight was a simulation and the simulator went just a bit further than intended. I think the story has stayed with me because it addresses the psychological dimensions of space exploration – an aspect I haven’t really seen addressed in news accounts or books.
NASA has filled this gap quite nicely with Psychology of Space Exploration, an engrossing new collection of articles on this theme…
