Eielson closure would be scary

Posted: March 13, 2012 - 8:20am

I'm sure it would be hard to keep this strategic Air Base open on the outcome of board games, but maybe somebody should look. The board games Risk and Axis and Allies both have world war settings. If during these very intense battles you have a secure Alaska it's pretty hard to invade North America with success.

Now we have a very strategic target, a missile defense system at Clear without nearby fighter protection. Just suppose an earthquake or a lucky surprise attack takes out Elmendorf, without fighter support our multi-billion dollar missile defense system would be a soft target. Probably wouldn't make any difference, eh?  After decades of closures hitting places like King Salmon, and Galena it's getting pretty close to home seeing Eielson close.

I'm sure I'm like most Americans who think if you are going to borrow money to make all your ends meet, just spend it well, but remember you are out of money! But closing this base and continuing to send our money to China for every pipe dream Washington has is going to come back and bite us! To borrow money for operation most businesses must eventually show some profit, or arrange your affairs so Uncle Sam is paying the bill. This is what's happening on a major scale for every dream wish Government seems to come up with. And there are more rumors of new Departments of Governing affairs being dreamed up and proposed almost daily. Like our very vital Department Of Energy, whose 16,000 federal employees after 30 years of operation are retiring to a golden parachute. The impact of this retirement on our National Debt is another scary development. Just how much of this retirement is funded via earlier budgets? Is it all unfunded? I get it -- we can just borrow another $16 billion to cover that as long as China is taking our chips! When will China just say pay up!

Howdy Bigun.Did you know

Howdy Bigun.
Did you know that Jake is home from Afgan? He got back monday morning, and now has to immediatly go to Destin, FL to get a house & prepare for his transfer there to be a Ranger instructor again, all by August.

This Eielson closure is just one more of OUR Prez. pushes to cripple America for the coming OWO which he was hearlded as the ONE that would lead us into this new Era of Time.

After we, America have become weak either by foriegn attacks or internal American Spring revolts, he will declare martial law & there it goes forever, OUR Freedom, under OUR Constitution.
OUR Prez. is a Constitutional lawyer that studied on ways to get America to the point of doing away with the only thing that prevents us from joining a OWO, OUR Constitution, and has gone about that Dream Act from way before his election.

Make no mistake EVERY move that happens is a planned move for the dismanteling of America as a world power & this removal of Eielson from the North is a welcome sign to any that would desire to attack us.
This will open up possible attacks on the oil Pipeline, futher restricting the availability of oil for America & causing more aid from the govt.

We are in trouble deep as a Nation that once served God with this Chosen Ones New Hope & Fundamental Change To Believe In, are we not?
Every thing that is done is ment to destroy soverign rights, causing more dependance on Govt. & the weaking of America is all part of this plan i do believe.

There will not be many that understand just exactly what this action may mean to Alaskans or even Canadians & the lower 48 if this closure happens.
It's almost like the college essay during WWII which asked how would you attack America and the answer was go up through Alaska, so they did, almost.
If Alaskans only realize how many times every week, month, OUR Air Force scrambles & intercepts Russian planes doing fly over's to test the airways, they would scream, or worse.

Personally i worry about the Saudi's which actually own more of our debt that China, and in fact have told China not to even think about calling in America's debt until they have done so and get their oil money first.
Saudi Oil, black gold, thats what has really got us bent over the peverbial barrel.

But as long as one knows the Truth, Jesus, and has invested in his 801k plan,(8 is the number for eternal) they have nothing to worry about in this life, no matter what all these differant End of Days Wannabe chosen ones come at us with.

Thanks for the article
Keep Looking up
