Russian GPS stations coming to the US?

Last year in a famous “off-mic” moment between Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and President Barack Obama, the latter sad to. Medvedev, “please tell Putin that after the election I will have more flexibility.” In response, President Medvedev stated, “I will give him the message.”

Of course, like everything else about President Obama, the media dared not question what that meant, because if you challenge any policy you’re charged as racist. But I digress…

Did flexibility mean you can give asylum to an American traitor? (yep, Edward Snowden is a traitor, not a hero. A hero stands before his countrymen to protect his homeland, a traitor runs away like a coward and enables attacks against his former country).

Did flexibility also mean you can embarrass America on an international stage over the civil war in Syria? After all, Obama didn’t really draw a red line, we all drew it.

No, flexibility means the shameless Obama administration is seeking to allow Russia to build a half-dozen facilities across the United States to operate the Glonass satellite system, a counterpart to and competitor with America’s Global Positioning System (GPS). First of all, do we want to invite competition to our system right in our own backyard? Secondly, consider the risk at which we are placing our own GPS system, — compromising it and signal disruption being the most prevalent concerns.

If Russian Glosnass stations are in close proximity to our towers, you’d have to realize we are exposing our GPS system to interference and espionage, by way of electronic warfare.

However, according to a New York Times report:

For the State Department, permitting Russia to build the stations would help mend the Obama administration’s relationship with the government of President Vladimir Putin, now at a nadir because of Moscow’s granting asylum to Mr. Snowden and its backing of President Bashar al Assad of Syria.

In typical misguided modern liberal fashion we must concede to the Kremlin in exchange for their bad behavior. And to add to this insidious bit of appeasement, neither the Defense Department nor the Intelligence community were in on this decision by the State Department. And please, do not bother to ask President Obama, his response will be, “Uh, uh, I did not know and just found out when reading Allen West’s website.”

This is not simply incompetence, it is insanity, the insanity of progressive socialism intent on the weakening of our republic, and its subjugation.

Snowden has done more to expose the corruption of the NSA and highest levels of government than any civilian in the last 3 decades. I don’t recall ever hearing about Snowden beating and torturing people and then getting kicked out of the Army for it.

Col. West, you have a good message but I would suggest that before calling people traitors and such consider what you’ve done in your past.

Michelle Stevens

Col. West was thrown out of the Army for a brutal assault and torturing a person who was accused of a crime they did not commit. Facts are facts, and while I agree with a lot of what Col. West has to say, calling people out like he’s done with Snowden is wrong.

While the American people may have had some clue as to the NSA spying, no one had any idea the scope of how corrupt the NSA was and how much the highest levels of our government allowed that to go on.

He retired with full benefits! That does not happen to someone that is thrown out of the military! As for the brutal attack you refer to, that was done by 4 of his soldiers, not Col. West. He fired a pistol to scare a terrorist during interrogations. This interrogation was to get information about an ambush of his unit! Asked if he would do it again, West testified, “If it’s about the lives of my soldiers at stake, I’d go through hell with a gasoline can”. I would say get your facts straight before you start spewing your utter nonsense!

Col. West retired with full rank and benifits. He admitted to making an error in judgement and received an article 15. The incident in question was blown out of proportion.

Blown out of proportion? The policeman that they beat and then shot at isn’t a big deal? Really? Col. West has a good message for the most part but clearly he’s shown to have had some serious anger management problems and poor judgement while in combat.

He and his administration lied about Benghazi, they knew it would eventually come out. Blatant, bold faced lies. Not just lies, but fabricated stories about a video being responsible. They used the most powerful agency in the United States to inhibit the growth of the opposing political party. The election was tainted through manipulation, deceit and corruption.

Michelle, Lt. Colonel West retired from the Army in 2004. The first words your fast and furious little fingers started out with were that he was “thrown out of the Army.” So, either apologize for BLOWING THINGS OUT OF PROPORTION, or every word you subsequently write will be considered rubbish.

Instead of responding to the actual issue at hand, liberals tend to try to discredit the person/speaker. Don’t give them the satisfaction of allowing her/them to unravel the actual issue.

So, what else is new? What could we expect from this administration? Has anybody forgotten who mr. Kery is? He lost the 2004 elections because he was caught in multiple lies about the Indochina war and his (modest to say the least) participation in it. Still the grossly misreported Indochina war is shaping many people’s views to this very day… And mrs. Clinton was not much better… Not to speak of Ms. Rice (the new one, the youtube sales person) who advises the POTUS on foreign policy.

Edward Snowden is a hero. Why wouldn’t someone run away when you know a corrupt government is coming after you?

Maintain your respect for Col West, Phil. He has a right to his opinion however mislead. He is looking from a military minded slant. He is an honest, heroic, patriotic, man who has put himself out there to make a difference. We need men like him to save this country. This is just a difference of opinion about the definition of heroic. In my opinion Snowden didn’t have to die to sacrifice his life for his country because he knew he could never come home again. That is his sacrifice and it’s huge. He knowingly did that to try to… Read more »

Snowden should not have run to a communist country that will use his information against us. That is being a traitor to this country. That is what Allen West is saying, I believe.

Charli

He went to Russia because he figured they would not hand him back. I didn’t like that he gave them information either but the cat was already out of the bag. No way to keep that from happening even if he weren’t in Russia. Then again should we be spying on our allies as well as our enemies? That’s kind of paranoid. I know Germany wasn’t too happy about it. Good way to turn a friend into an enemy.

Under the Obama Administration, Ed Snowden would’ve fought for 3 minutes then ended up in a Federal Prison with a gag order and stripped with any and all information to make his point. He had NO alternative but to run! Obama will drone American children in foreign countries, I’m sure Snowden would’ve had an accident in prison. I’m disgusted at what the NSA is doing/keeping on the average American! Imagine what our founders would say.

why o why has he not been impeached or forcibly removed by the military?

He hasn’t been impeached because he hasn’t committed an impeachable offense. He hasn’t been forcibly removed by the military because this is America, not Egypt.

TJefferson44

You are an idiot and a blind one at that! There are none as blind as those who will not see. Just one: giving money and military hardware to those who sponsor terrorism when we are at war terrorist-sponsoring states and groups is “aiding and abetting the enemies” of America…. Obama, guilty! Impeachable offense. Using the IRS to target his political enemies [one of the impeachment charges against Nixon] … Obama, guilty! Impeachable offense. You are a class A moron! Wondering if you’re a russian as well!

Bewarmer

What terror sponsoring states has he been giving money and hardware to? As far as the IRS is concerned, that was laid to a bureaucrat taking a political view of her job. Any connection to the WH there might or might not have been was not provable and therefore not impeachable.

Obama will not be removed by the military, because he has been gutting the Generals that would stand up to him.

If he only talked about what the NSA and CIA were doing to Americans, I would (and did) agree. When he went further and brought confidential and top secret information about our defenses and spy networks to other countries, THAT made him a traitor.

I agree. If I worked in the Government with a top secret clearance and stole information then released it to the public I would have to be delusional to think I would not be prosecuted to the max.

Russia did not give him shelter without quid pro quo. Would any country?

Snowden is a hero/villain. He is a hero for letting Americans know how Obama is getting his information files (like the Black Legislator said) he has the most information on all of us that anyone has ever had and the next candidate will have access to the same electronic information). Hero for disclosing that.
He is a villain for disclosing information to foreign powers that hurt our security efforts of obtaining intelligence to keep the US safe from abroad. Villain.

Bewarmer

Agreed. Snowden is a mixed bag. I don’t understand how folks can call themselves conservatives and Constitutionalists when they’re so ready to throw away the Fourth Amendment just because they might die in a terror attack. You have a better chance of dying in a household accident or driving home from work than being the victim of a terrorist.

He taught that we should all love one another. You don’t seem to love anybody who isn’t a mirror of yourself.. Are you saying that education a bad and ignorance is good?

I’m not the one ignoring facts. Time and again I have laid facts before and in each case you’ve abandoned discussion on those points. When you asked for a reference, you got it though you provide no references for your beliefs.

No sir,I have cited my references. It is what is happening in the world today. History is a worthy study. By doing so we can understand the circumstance that put actions in motion for that time period and how the people made their decisions. It is a nice thought that man does not repeat his mistakes. But we do over and over. The idea that if the wealth is shared by free trade and all nations have equal wealth is a wonderful idea. Mans nature is greed. Someone always has to be #1.

Bottom line is……..get informed about who is running for office, what the incumbents have done during their careers, and VOTE!! Start compiling your lists now. Look at the character of the person running. If they aren’t intelligent, moral and decent people don’t vote for them. We have got to take the Senate, Congress and House to throw out everything Obama and his minions have done and several ex-Presidents too. We have to sew up the stab wounds in America’s back. The only way to do this short of all out revolution is to vote every communist, progressive, Marxist, Democrat out… Read more »

And put money on the races. It is tough to compete with Union funds extorted in many cases from people whose political views do not line up with their union bosses. Start now to save a few dollars a week that you are going to send to candidates local, state and national that need your help in close races to bring down this regime. Money buys message and message buys votes. Also please to one local or fed candidate’s campaign office and volunteer your services.

“If Russian Glosnass stations are in close proximity to our towers, you’d have to realize we are exposing our GPS system to interference and espionage, by way of electronic warfare.”
Our GPS system is satellite NOT ground based (we have no towers)!

Cell phones and other GPS devices aren’t capable of picking up GPS directly from the satellites. They rely on ground based towers which connect to the satellites and relay to the devices.

then what are the russian towers for????

Mary Burton Majure

For GPS to work, it takes four satelites and a receiver on the ground…as for the towers? I would imagine that the pc answer would be to relay or something. But in reality…I think it’s no different than OnStar having the ability to open a locked car or send a message to cut off an engine…if we let the camel stick it’s head in the tent…the whole camel will be in the tent. Strategically, this is a horrid idea…they could sneak right on in here and totally shut us down…hack the planet.

You cannot be accused of racism with regards to obama. He is not full black. he is half black and half white. Get over the racist crap people. There is racism in all races.

In 19th century America you could be seven eights white and still be considered Negro. In the 20th century Jim Crow laws utilized the “one drop rule”. If there was any negro blood anywhere at all in your family tree you were considered legally black. Obama’s African blood shows in his face therefore for all intents and purposes, Americans consider him black.

No, Obama is not 1/2 black and 1/2 white!!! He is 1/2 white, and most of the rest of him is middle eastern with just a hint of black thrown in for good measure!!! His father was not full black, only about 1/4–the rest is middle east!!

Almost. Kennedy challenged the Soviet Union, not quite the same as “the Russians”. The USSR had an oligarchy driven totalitarian govt masquerading as a Republic and a communist economy. Modern Day Russia has a workable, if imperfect Republican govt and an evolving free market economy. While some social programs still exist there, private property is now allowed as are private enterprises but there’s no more cradle to the grave health care and no govt telling you what you will and won’t do for a living or where you’re allowed to live or what you have to pay for it. it… Read more »

Given the administrations tendency to squash whistle blowers, was Snowden’s fleeing the country really imprudent? He is being charged with espionage, which means sharing our countries secrets with the the enemy. Since he shared what the government was doing TO the American people WITH the American people, that implies the government sees us as the enemy. At least that’s my two cents worth.

I’m thinking that TJefferson44 doesn’t. Think, that is. He feels, makes his decisions with his gut. Stuck in the past, he still sees Moscow as the capital of the USSR, oblivious to the fact that the USSR is dead, and so is communism. Russia, a competitor for influence on the world stage is no major threat to America. They still can’t build anything or grow enough food to fill their bellies. Their economy is based on exporting oil while they import practically everything else they consume. What will happen to their economy when oil is replaced by other energy sources?… Read more »

I believe BO has committed treason long ago in his first year in office. Only the House of Representatives may call for BO’s impeachment. WE need to get a statement of intent sent to the US Reps from the state we live in. Why remain silent any longer??!! THAT itself is an act of treason!

Firstly, we *built* a big stick.
