In a correspondence that filtered out of Moscow, according to reliable sources Putin made a bold move by sending troops into Crimea, because he knew this would get Sarah Palin back in the news....Secret Admirer?

Dear John “Shitboat” Kerry;
Please leave the EU and go wind surfing and leave the Crimea mess to the professionals, like Obama. Look, Putin is not about to invade the world and your WAR mongering is not appreciated as our nation cannot find itself engaged in another conflict. And your sick like rhetoric, about Putin invading another country, where were you during the Iraq invasion – wind surfing? That “Yes” vote of yours cost over 4500 young kids to find an early grave, not to mention the 320-thousand that have returned home with prosthesis as a crutch, or brain disorders for following “Your” orders! And remember this, that red stuff that goes flying every which way loose and paints the battle field a hellfire, it ain't Heinz Ketchup!
PS: Dear President Obama, isn't time to get rid of this jerk?

To the Congress of the United States:
I am submitting to you today Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1979 to create the Office of Federal Inspector for the Alaska Natural Gas Transportation System and establish the position of Federal Inspector. Creation of this Office and the transfer of appropriate Federal enforcement authority and responsibility is consistent with my September 1977 Decision and Report to the Congress on the Alaska Natural Gas Transportation System. This decision was approved by the Congress November 2, 1977. The Alaska Gas Transportation System is a 4,748-mile pipeline to be constructed in partnership with Canada. Canada completed legislation enacting a similar transfer last year and has already appointed an official to coordinate its activities prior to and during pipeline construction. The Northwest Alaska Pipeline Company has been selected to construct the pipeline, with completion scheduled in late 1984. Estimated construction costs are $10-$15 billion, to be financed by private investment. Natural gas is among the Nation's most valuable fuels. It is in the national interest to bring Alaskan gas reserves to market at the lowest possible price for consumers. Construction of a gas pipeline from the Prudhoe Bay reserves in Alaska through Canada to points in the West and Midwest United States will provide a system which will deliver more Alaskan natural gas at less cost to a greater number of Americans than any alternative transportation system. Every effort must be made to ensure timely completion of the pipeline at the lowest possible cost consistent with Federal regulatory policies. As a result of our experience in construction of the Trans-Alaska Oil Pipeline, we recognize the need for the Federal Government to be in a strong position to manage its own role in this project through prompt, coordinated decisionmaking in pre-construction approval functions and in enforcing the terms and conditions of the permits, certificates, leases, and other authorizations to be issued by various Federal agencies. We must avoid duplicating the delays and cost escalations experienced in the construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System. The Plan I am submitting would establish clear responsibility for the efficient functioning of Federal enforcement activities by assigning the Federal Inspector authority to carry out these responsibilities. The Alaska Natural Gas Transportation Act of 1976 [15 U.S.C. 719 et seq.] only provided for monitoring the construction of the pipeline. The Plan transfers to the Federal Inspector the authority to supervise the enforcement of terms and conditions of the permits and other authorizations, including those to be issued by the Departments of Agriculture, Interior, Transportation, and Treasury, and the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Plan provides for the Federal Inspector to coordinate other Federal activities directly related to the pipeline project. Federal agencies retain their authority to issue permits and related authorizations, but enforcement of the terms and conditions of these authorizations is transferred to the Federal Inspector. Transfer of enforcement authority from Federal agencies to the Federal Inspector is limited in scope to their participation in this project and in duration to the pre-construction, construction, and initial operation phases of the project. The Decision and Report to the Congress recommended an Executive Policy Board with policy-making and supervisory authority over the Federal Inspector. I plan to sign an Executive Order upon approval of this Plan by the Congress which will create an Executive Policy Board which will be only advisory, but which will enhance communication and coordinate among Federal agencies and with the Federal Inspector. The Plan modifies the Decision and Report in that regard. The Federal Inspector will use the policies and procedures of the agencies involved in exercising the transferred enforcement responsibilities to the maximum extent practicable. The Board provides the opportunity for agencies to contribute to the policy deliberations of the Inspector and exercises an oversight role to insure that pipeline activities are carried on within existing regulatory policy. The Board is required to review the budget of the Office of the Federal Inspector and periodically report to me on the progress of construction and on major problems encountered. I am convinced that the Federal Inspector must have authority commensurate with his responsibilities. Each of the provisions of this proposed reorganization would accomplish one or more of the purposes set forth in Section 901(a) of Title 5 of the United States Code. The appointment and compensation of the Federal Inspector is in accordance with the provisions of the Alaska Natural Gas Transportation Act of 1976 [15 U.S.C. 719 et seq.], and the Reorganization Act of 1977. The provisions for appointment and pay in this Plan are necessary by reason of a reorganization made by the Plan. The rate of compensation is comparable to rates for similar positions within the Executive Branch. This reorganization will result in a reduction in the cost of construction for the pipeline system and ultimately in savings to American consumers. A small increase in cost to the Federal government will result from the creation of the Office of the Federal Inspector. The Plan requires that the Office and the position of Federal Inspector will be abolished upon the first anniversary date after the pipeline becomes operational.
The White House, April 2, 1979.

Finally and with good riddance another state of the Union is taking away the “Realty Crap” gusto and maybe this will allow Alaska to get back to its true reality roots – and instead of the “Lost Frontier” we can take back some of our true worth and get some semblance of the “Last Frontier” back in check. Those “History” reality shows - started when Sarah Palin was Queen for a Day - have a tendency of checking-out reality and replacing it with pure bullshit, a pathetic waste it is – especially with that Alaska State Troopers show'n tell lies. Then again, maybe the next episode about the men & women in uniform will be when the troopers arrest one of their own, a retired Commander-in-Pervert. Look, have you watched yet a “Reality” TV show that documents through film footage the “True Grit” Alaskan hard at work? No, because “Big Oil” would not want to be laughed upon and will never let those idiotic film crews from the lower-48 into the North Slope oil patch. And NO, “Big Oil” is not interested in the “Film Tax” credit sell-out – as Parnell just gave them a $billion$ dollar well deserved infusion. Look, if Sarah can give away $millions$, why cannot the governor give away a little, at least we see some jobs created by “Big Oil” and the tax break - with Tans-Canada and Palin's AGIA, we have paid out good money for nothing but lame excuses! Fact of the splatter, when these jerks that came north with a camera and turned a civilized haul road into an “Ice Road”, isn't impersonating the IQ of George Bush a crime, as that was the equivalent intellect we were seeing with this waste of celluloid and a bunch of baloney fool hardy “Pork Chop” characters trying to claim fake fame. For those that have been taken for a ride, it AIN'T AN ICE ROAD! And that “Smelliest Catch, what a way to tell your kids, “It's alright to smoke cancer causing cigarettes”! Anyway, those in the Northwest will be taking the “Reality” momentum away from Alaska with some new show about a real looser, a guy named “Mick, The legend of a Draft Dodger”. This guy thinks he is some prehistoric cannibal, and eats “scat” for survival. Not just animal scat, but any pile of crap found along a trail. But many in the know that area of the Olympic Peninsula where once upon a time “Big Foot” reigned as the thriller chiller, many think this guy “Mick” is a fake - as he is often seen pigging out at the local “Billions Served” burger joint in some podunk logging town. In fact rumor has it that those vacationing in the rain forest west of Seattle can enjoy the newest sensation in honor this fake-you-out con-artist, its called the MickScat burger. I watch these shows just to see what we as a nation find interesting. It is sad, but when the news media has been taken over by Mutt & Jeff idiots also - OK, we no longer have to shoot the TV - there ain't nothing worthwhile to waste time upon. Yes, TV shot itself in the....In fact, watching Congress, well at least its a laughable situation, especially when Cruz calls Obama a “monkey”. Imagine, another American thinking he or she has the luxury of calling the sitting President a “Monkey”. Isn't this a crime punishable by...that's it. A diner date with Mick! Would you like cheese on that scat Mr. Cruz? Wow, reality worth its meaning!
