China’s Air Force on High Alert, Sends Warplanes into Air-Defense Zone

Story by the Associated Press; curated by Dave Urbanski

BEIJING (AP) — The state news agency is reporting that China has sent warplanes into its newly declared maritime air defense zone.

The flights Thursday came after South Korean and Japanese flights through the zone added to the international defiance of rules Beijing says it has imposed in the East China Sea.

China’s air force spokesman Shen Jinke says several fighter jets and an early warning aircraft were sent on normal air patrols in the zone Thursday. He was quoted by the state news agency Xinhua.

Shen described the flights as “a defensive measure and in line with international common practices.” He said China’s air force would remain on high alert and will take measures to protect the country’s airspace.

China said Wednesday it monitored two unarmed U.S. bombers that flew over the East China Sea in defiance of Beijing’s declaration it is exercising greater military control over the area, the AP noted.

Tuesday’s flight of the B-52 bombers underscored U.S. assertions that it will not comply with Chinese demands that aircraft flying through its newly declared maritime air defense zone identify themselves and accept Chinese instructions, the AP added.

Lawmakers question Obama’s pledge to scale back US nuclear arsenal

President Obama’s pledge to cut the United States’ nuclear arsenal by one-third is sending the wrong message to the global community, some Washington lawmakers said Wednesday.  

“Now is not the time to pursue further strategic nuclear force reductions,” Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., said following Obama’s speech in Berlin, Germany.

Inhofe was among several lawmakers who warned that cutting the country’s strategic nuclear arsenal by one-third would put America at a disadvantage against countries like Russia, North Korea and Iran. Inhofe said the president’s plan wrongly assumes that reducing the role of nuclear weapons would make the world safer.

“Instead, our experience has been that nuclear arsenals — other than ours — are on the rise, Russia defies us at almost every turn, efforts to curb the nuclear ambitions of North Korea and Iran are failing, and our allies grow increasingly uneasy about the reliability of U.S. nuclear guarantees,” Inhofe, the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said.  

The president called for further reducing nuclear stockpiles, and ultimately eliminating nuclear weapons, during an address in Berlin on Wednesday. “So long as nuclear weapons exist, we are not truly safe,” he said. 

In the near-term, if the Senate approves the U.S.-Russia proposal, Obama would reduce the current limit for each country of 1,550 by a third, which would potentially bring the warhead stockpile to as low as 1,000. 

Sen. Kelly Ayotte, a freshman Republican senator from New Hampshire, called the president’s decision to pursue additional reductions “misguided and dangerous.”

“A robust and reliable U.S. nuclear arsenal discourages nuclear proliferation and deters nuclear attacks on the United States and our allies,” Ayotte said in a statement.

Ret. Gen. Jack Keane told Fox News the country needs to do the opposite of what the president is proposing and instead should ramp up and modernize the program.

“Our (nuclear program) is in very bad shape and we have decorating capabilities,” he said.

Some lawmakers, though, applauded the president’s plan.

Democratic Rep. Adam Smith, ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee, praised Obama’s approach.

“The president’s announcement today will allow the United States to lead the way on nuclear weapons reductions in a manner that strengthens our national security,” he said in a statement, adding that Obama “clearly understands that a strong nuclear deterrent remains essential. We have, and would retain, the ability to destroy the world many times over.” 

During his speech in Berlin, Obama said “this is the moment to begin the work of seeking the peace of a world without nuclear weapons.”

It was the same message he told a crowd of 200,000-strong in Germany back in 2008 while he visited the country during his presidential campaign. 

Obama also said, upon his return to the U.S., he will ask the Senate to ratify the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty which has failed to make any significant strides in the Senate. During Wednesday’s speech, Obama also announced plans to attend a summit on securing nuclear material in 2014 in the Hague, an extension of the series of international meetings he initiated in 2009.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin seemed to question Obama’s sincerity and dismissed his statements.

“Obama’s calls to reduce nuclear arms cannot be taken seriously given that the U.S. is still ramping up its missile defenses,” Rogozin  told Reuters.  

At the end of the Cold War with Russia in 1991, America had deployed more than 10,000 warheads on delivery vehicles. Since then, the number has decreased to fewer than 2,000 warheads, and is slated to fall further in the next five years, after the new START Treaty completes implementation.

The current cost of the U.S. arsenal and its support infrastructure surpasses $31 billion a year.

In April 2010, the U.S. and Russia signed the New START Treaty which the Senate approved in December 2010. The new START superseded SORT– the Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty, which was signed by the two nations in 2002 and was scheduled to expire at the end of 2012.

Under the terms of the New START agreement, each side would limit its number of deployed nuclear weapons delivery systems to no more than 700. The number of deployed strategic nuclear warhead stockpiles were capped at 1,500.

Presently, the administration is completing a review of the size of its nuclear force as well as a review of the country’s employment policy.

The president has also said publicly that the U.S. may be able to cut its numbers of deployed and non-deployed warheads even more. According to press reports, the Pentagon is now reviewing the number of alternatives and that the White House is likely to shave the number of nukes even more to 1,000 warheads. However, Obama insists that any major movements would be done in parallel with Russia.

There are a growing number of countries who have access to nuclear weapons.

According to the Arms Control Association, China has 240 total warheads, France has fewer than 300 and Russia has 1,480 deployed strategic warheads. The Federation of American Scientists estimates that Russia has another 1,022 non-deployed strategic warheads and another 2,000 tactical nuclear warheads. Russia has thousands of others waiting to be dismantled. The United Kingdom has a stockpile of 225.

Part of the global concern over nuclear capabilities stems from the widespread catastrophic damage that could occur if the weapons were placed in the wrong hands especially in countries of instability like North Korea and Syria.

Defeating Barack Obama’s Assault on American Gun Owning Patriots

It’s quite simple Mr. President

We the people are

N    E    V    E    R

Going to give up Our Guns nor Our Second Amendment Rights!

Your Sir might be better served going after the Left Wing Loons who are committing these violent acts upon our Citizenry.

We have seen the Violent Gun Crime Stats in Cities where they have the most aggressive Gun Control Laws, ie Chicago (your home town) and Washington D.C. (your vacation rental). 

Both of these cities have the Highest Violent Gun Crimes rates in the Country and you have lived in both of them!

However, since you seem so bent on disarming your law abiding Citizens and you are constantly telling US…

(((“ GUNS DON’T KEEP YOU SAFE “)))

Why not Lead by Example and Disarm your Secret Service Protection? 

That way, together, we can ALL live in the Safe Utopia you have created here in America with your Class Warfare Agenda

The end of Freedom in America

feb14threagan

Did Ronald Reagan see all those many years ago the dangers of the Progressive Liberal Movement in the United States of America?

Did he not as our President fight with every fiber of his being to bring about the end of that Evil Empire and bring down the Berlin Wall?

Did he not destroy the workings of Communism in our age?

How then is it that today we are seeing the Berlin Wall beginning rise up again and this time in America? We are about to be destroyed by all those things which he and countless other Americans stood against and repeatedly warned us about?

Judgment day is here my friends and I fear that our greatest challenge today is our own President and all those Progressive Socialists who now hold power in our Capitol.

We the People must put a stop to this or I fear all will be lost and the Greatness that once was America will be no more!

A United Nations Gun Control Treaty will Supersede Our Second Amendment Rights

After the Japanese decimated our fleet in Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941, They could have sent their troop ships and carriers directly to California To finish what they started. The prediction from our Chief of Staff was we would not be able to stop a
Massive invasion until they reached the Mississippi River. So, why did they not invade? After the war, the remaining Japanese generals and admirals were asked that question. Their answer……They know that almost every home had guns and the Americans knew how to use them..
The world’s largest army…. America’s hunters! I had never thought about this….A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and Arrived at a striking conclusion:
There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin .. Allow me to restate that number. Over the last several months, Wisconsin ‘s hunters became the eighth Largest army in the world. More men under arms than in Iran .. More than in France and Germany combined. These men deployed to the woods of a single American state to hunt With firearms, and no one was killed. That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan’s 700,000 hunters All of whom have now returned home. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally Establishes the fact that the hunters of those four states alone Would comprise the largest army in the world.
The point?
America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower. Hunting — it’s not just a way to fill the freezer. It’s a matter of national security.

That’s why all enemies, foreign and domestic, including the Obama White House want to see US Disarmed

Food for thought when next we consider gun control

Russia Conducts Largest Nuclear Exercise Since Cold War as America Stands Down

Troubling? Putin Oversees Largest Russian Nuclear Tests Since the Cold War

Amid international calls for nuclear disarmament, Russia has launched the most comprehensive tests on its nuclear arsenal since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the Kremlin said Saturday.

Reuters relates:

The exercises, held mostly on Friday, featured prominently in news reports on state television which seemed aimed to show Russians and the world that Putin is the hands-on chief of a resurgent power.

Tests involving command systems and all three components of the nuclear “triad” – land and sea-launched long-range nuclear missiles and strategic bombers – were conducted “under the personal leadership of Vladimir Putin”, the Kremlin said.

“Exercises of the strategic nuclear forces were conducted on such a scale for the first time in the modern history of Russia,” the Kremlin statement [added].

“Vladimir Putin gave a high evaluation to the combat units and crews and the work of the Armed Forces General Staff, which fulfilled the tasks before them and affirmed the reliability and effectiveness of Russia’s nuclear forces.” [Emphasis added]

In 2010, the United States and Russia agreed to scale back their nuclear arsenals to no more than 1,550 warheads by 2018.  However, while Putin appears to be fine-tuning his arsenal, President Obama has made his commitment to total nuclear disarmament perfectly clear.

“I state clearly and with conviction America’s commitment to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons,” he said to a Nobel Peace Prize panel shortly after he was elected.  “This goal will not be reached quickly – perhaps not in my lifetime. It will take patience and persistence.”

Republicans have harshly criticized the president’s ambitions, however, saying it is highly unlikely our enemies will follow our lead.  On the contrary, they will likely just grow bolder as the balance swings in their favor.

Who really is this man that came from obscurity to the World Stage in little if no time at all?

Sealed records and refusal to disclose certain vital records makes one wonder more than ever who this President is that seems determined to destroy all that is America.

We the People are not satisfied with President Obama’s nor the Main Stream Media‘s attempts to Sweep this issue under the rug.
