Withdrawal of Areas off the United States Arctic Coast of the Outer Continental Shelf from Oil or Gas Leasing

Washington, DC...Consistent with principles of responsible public stewardship, and (1) with due consideration of the irreplaceable marine and coastal environments — including for marine mammals, other wildlife, wildlife habitat, scientific research, and Alaska Native subsistence use — of the Beaufort Sea area of the Outer Continental Shelf; (2) independently with due consideration of the vulnerability of the ecosystems and coastal communities to oil spills, particularly where limited or no oil and gas development has yet occurred; and (3) independently with due consideration of the national need to curtail, mitigate, build resilience against, and adapt to the devastating and irreversible consequences of climate change for the human environment and for the marine and coastal environments, I hereby direct as follows:

Under the authority granted to me in section 12(a) of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, 43 U.S.C. 1341(a), I hereby withdraw from disposition by oil or gas leasing for a time period without specific expiration the areas designated by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management as the Beaufort Planning Area of the Outer Continental Shelf that have not previously been withdrawn.

The boundaries of the withdrawn areas are more specifically delineated in the attached map. The map forms a part of this memorandum. The withdrawal directed by this memorandum prevents consideration of withdrawn areas for any future oil or gas leasing for purposes of exploration, development, or production.

Nothing in this withdrawal affects rights under existing leases in the withdrawn areas.

Remember when Joe Biden's actions in his Debacle in Afghanistan killed 13 US Military Members and Critical Wounds to about 3 Dozen others, like losing arms, legs, eye sight? He gave a speech and said he takes full responsibility because he's suppose to be our President, our Commander in Chief, and he said because of that, "The Buck Stops With Me" and the God Damn next sentence our Coward In Chief blamed Our 45th POTUS Donald Trump for Biden's Complete Failure and his STUPIDITY in pulling out our Entire Military Personnel before anything and everything else.
Now with Two banks collapse, he's doing it again, TDS, Trump Derangement Syndrome. Biden is blaming Trump. Un-Fuking believable.
Trump gave Biden a rip- roaring Economy with a tiny 1.4 Inflation and Biden gave us the highest inflation in FORTY PLUS YEARS, Biden " Trump's Fault."
Highest energy cost EVER, Biden "Trump's Fault."
Millions of Illegal Immigrants, Record setting highs, Trump's Fault.
Biden invites Putin to a small Incursion into Ukraine, Biden "Trump's Fault."
Gas and Diesel prices all- time Highs, Biden "Trump's Fault."
Number ONE killer of Over 100,000 Americans age 18 to 49 a record die of Drug Over Dose because of an unsecured border, Biden "Trump's Fault."
Chinese Spy Balloon goes across our Country, Biden does nothing until, let's all information be related back then shoots it down, Biden "Trump's Fault."
Supply Chain completely collapses, Biden" Trump's Fault"
Biden stops Keystone Pipeline, declares war on Fossil Fuel, begs our Adversaries for more oil, shows why the world sees Biden as weak, a fool, stupid, senile, laughingstock, China becomes more aggressive, Biden on all of it, " Trump's Fault"
Train Derailment, people become sick, pets and animals die, Biden Administration lies and says it's safe, trust us, administration takes 3 Weeks to show up, Biden says
" Trump's Fault"
I don't know about you, but I'm getting the feeling that the next disaster, and with this administration there's going to be a HELLUVA lot more, that for some reason it will be Biden saying "It's Trump's Fault"

      Willow Project Approved
      Posted on: 2023-03-13 14:45:49   By: Anonymous
      WTG John, the Willow project was approved, you'd not know it from this.
      Yes other drilling in other areas was banned , but the Willow project which is already sickening the native kids and adults, wildlife is there now. It will only get worse. They are calling for resettlement, the Eskimos are resisting, but they are being sickened.

      We must speed up clean renewable electricity, and have an Apollo type project to speed up new clean technologies.

New J6 Bodycam Footage Shows “Rioters” Peacefully Exit Senate Chamber – “God Bless The Men & Women In Blue”
Posted on: 2023-03-13 17:00:30   By: Anonymous
Additional information continues being slowly revealed to public

On Monday, NBC News reporter Ryan J. Reilly posted footage from inside the Senate chamber during the January 6th debacle after a judge ordered its release back in November of 2022.

One previously unseen video clip shows police bodycam footage of the “Q Anon Shaman” Jacob Chansley and others being asked to leave the Senate chamber.

“God bless the men and women in blue! God bless you guys. We’re on your side,” Chansley said as police ask the “insurrectionists” to leave. “Thank you for your patience, we really appreciate it.”

Other alleged rioters also thanked the officers and said, “God bless you guys” while they obeyed the orders to exit the room.

Politico reporter Kyle Cheney posted another new clip of Chansley, this one showing him entering the Capitol building before preventing a fellow demonstrator from grabbing food from the Senate “break room,” a story he’d later tell CBS News’ 60 Minutes.

These two new videos provide additional context to the recent footage aired by Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealing Chansley was under the watch of Capitol police while he roamed the halls and did not appear to commit any acts of violence or vandalism.

Responding to the Tucker Carlson Tonight footage and another video of Chansley asking protesters to “go home” due to Donald Trump’s Twitter message on January 6th, Twitter CEO Elon Musk tweeted out “Free Jacob Chansley.”

During an interview with 60 Minutes in March 2021, the show’s host told Chansley, “Legally, you were not allowed to be there.”

In response, the “Q Shaman” explained he didn’t think he was violating any law by entering the Senate chamber because the protesters “were waved in by police officers.”

Meanwhile, as 60 Minutes pressed the legality of entering the Senate chamber and peacefully leaving once asked, a flashback clip of Joe Biden reveals his personal hypocrisy on the matter.

Speaking with late-night host David Letterman in 2007, Biden claimed he’d been briefly arrested for walking into the Senate chamber when he was just 21 years old.

Independent journalist Kanekoa The Great posted the Biden flashback, asking, “Would this be considered a two-tiered justice system that prosecutes individuals based on their politics?”

As the establishment’s January 6 house of cards continues to collapse at freefall speed, more and more people will wake up to the fact the whole thing was a Deep State operation.

Just ask former Bill Clinton White House adviser and feminist author Naomi Wolf!

Watch: Group of Women Unable To Answer ‘What Is A Woman?’
Posted on: 2023-03-13 17:10:45   By: Anonymous
This is the where cancel culture leads.

What is a woman?

A group of young women from the “Whatever” podcast were unable to answer that very simple question last week.

One woman who did speak up immediately defended the “trans” community.

“If I come at it and say a woman is someone who was born biologically a woman, I understand that’s where you’re coming from. And I agree everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I personally, I as an individual respect trans people, I respect trans women, so I’m not gonna come on here and invalidate them by saying that,” she said, adding she doesn’t “feel comfortable” answering.

Another woman also said she didn’t feel comfortable answering the question, claiming the podcast host who posed the question seemed “committed to misunderstanding” the issue.

Fortunately, one woman at the end who was seemingly unafraid of the cancel mob easily answered the common-sense question: “A woman is an adult human female. A man is an adult human male. XX chromosomes means you’re a woman.”

This just highlights the corrosive nature of cancel culture as many Americans are now afraid to even speak their minds without fear of retribution from the far-left activist mob.
