    AmmoLand ^ | December 30, 2021 | Dean Weingarten
    The Democrat Governor of Guam, Lourdes (Lou) Aflague Leon Guerrero, vetoed legislative bill 73-36, the “Hearing Protection Act” on December 22, 2021. The bill had passed the Senate by a narrow margin on December 15. With only 13 Senators present, the bill passed on a 7 to 6 bipartisan vote. From the the 15 member legislature, 13 lawmakers were present for the vote. With Vice Speaker Barnes and Sen. Terlaje absent and excused, only 7 votes were needed for passage. That threshold was met when Senators Tony Ada, Frank Blas Jr., Christopher M. Dueñas, James Moylan, Clynton Ridgell, Telo...
  • 'If we can't defend Guam it's really hard to project power into the Pacific': US builds Iron Dome on America's closest military base to China

    The United States is setting up its own version of the 'Iron Dome' on the Pacific Ocean island of Guam as it begins testing the missile-defense system on the heels of China flexing its military might. Soldiers from Fort Bliss, Texas flew to the US territory weeks ago to help set up the Iron Dome, according to a spokesman for the 94th Army Air and Missile Defense Command. The system arrived on Guam last week. ....

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) stated that “these folks are trying to kill us right now as far as our right to vote. They’re trying to kill our democracy,” and urged people “confront this evil that is right there in front of our face and is ready to choke us to death unless we can show that we’re not going to lay down and let it happen, we’re actually going to seize control. This is our country. We built this country.”

    Democrat Representative Hank Johnson was arrested at the Capitol on Thursday during a Black Lives Matter protest. Johnson was arrested outside the Hart Senate Office building while attending Black Lives Matter’s “Brothers Day of Action on Capitol Hill” protest. Demonstrators were protesting against Republican-led efforts to enact laws that will strengthen the integrity of elections — such as voter ID laws and ending the use of drop boxes for ballots.

    Conservative Brief ^ | 5/24 | Martin Walsh
    The U.S. Supreme Court issued a unanimous decision on Monday that gives new life into a lawsuit Guam brought against the United States over a massive waste site leaking toxic chemicals into the Pacific Ocean. Guam closed the Ordot Landfill in 2011 as part of a $160 million settlement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In court filings over the years, Guam argued that it should not have to foot the bill alone as the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act contains a provision for settling parties to seek contribution from other responsible parties. The ruling, written by Justice...
  • Intimidation: Dem Lawmaker Leads National Guard Troops to Office of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene

    Something very creepy and un-American happened outside the congressional office of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). During remarks at CPAC, Greene mistakenly said that Guam was a foreign land. In response, Guam's representative in Congress led a large contingent of Guam National Guard troops - in uniform - to her office. Rep. Michael F.Q. San Nicolas, Guam's only representative, and the troops briefly met with one of Greene’s aides, who said the congresswoman was not at her office. The congressman has yet to explain why he summoned military troops to escort him to the Georgia congresswoman's office. In 2010, Rep....

    While Washington acknowledges its allies and partners are willing to back a “free and open” Indo-Pacific policy, the keys to American success in confronting Chinese bullying is having smaller nations see a “consistent and reliable” presence from the U.S., according to a former senior diplomat.Speaking at a Heritage Foundation online webinar, David Stilwell, who from 2019 to early 2021 served as the assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, said “we should design our policy for speed, not perfection.”The retired Air Force brigadier general said, the “policy has to be steady” to deter “gray-zone” harassment and military...

    Persistent use of methamphetamine is the single biggest risk factor for HIV seroconversion among gay and bisexual men, according to a new study published in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes. Using subjects from across the U.S., including Puerto Rico and Guam, researchers found that over 12 months of follow-up, 14% of study participants reported using meth, and 2.5% tested positive for HIV (115 new infections). More than a third of study participants (36%) seroconverting for HIV were persistent users of methamphetamine.

    As US aircraft carriers sail the South China Sea, many Chinese military analysts are warning that a military confrontation is inevitable. Rabbi Pinchas Winston, an end-of-days expert, notes that, as prophecy states, a military confrontation is inevitable and China, though not explicitly named in the Bible as the aggressor, has a clear role to play as the nemesis of Israel. Correspondent Yu Zeyuan reported in Think China on a recent scholarly article by Chinese military academic Wang Yunfei. The article warned that “right now, it looks very likely that the Trump administration may make an unexpected move and suddenly decide...

    Everyone is up in arms about the fact that the Navy brass fired Captain Brett Crozier, of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, a Nimitz-class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, after Crozier complained about people on his ship being infected with COVID-19. To many people, he was a lone man fighting a hardened bureaucracy on behalf of the men and women in his care. To others, though, he was a dangerous malcontent who placed his entire ship at risk by ignoring rules that exist for a reason. The report about Captain Brett Crozier, whose ship, the USS Roosevelt, was docked in Guam, broke like...
  • Sailors Chant, Cheer for Ousted USS Roosevelt Commander as He Leaves Carrier

    Capt. Brett Crozier was removed from his post as commanding officer of the San Diego-based USS Theodore Roosevelt, but he got a hero’s sendoff from his sailors as he left the aircraft carrier in Guam. Video shared by sailors on social media shows a significant number of the crew cheering, applauding and chanting Crozier’s name as he exited the vessel. The captain was relieved of command over the way he spread a memo wrote to Navy leadership desperately calling for swift action after a major coronavirus outbreak aboard the Roosevelt.

    Note: This story has been updated with comments from the U.S. Navy. The captain of a nuclear aircraft carrier with more than 100 sailors infected with the coronavirus pleaded Monday with U.S. Navy officials for resources to allow isolation of his entire crew and avoid possible deaths in a situation he described as quickly deteriorating. The unusual plea from Capt. Brett Crozier, a Santa Rosa native, came in a letter obtained exclusively by The Chronicle and confirmed by a senior officer on board the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt, which has been docked in Guam following a COVID-19 outbreak among the...

    President Donald Trump is raising a large chunk of the money for his border wall with Mexico by deferring several military construction projects slated for Guam, a strategic hub for U.S. forces in the Pacific. This may disrupt plans to move Marines to Guam from Japan and to modernize munitions storage for the Air Force. About 7% of the funds for the $3.6 billion wall are being diverted from eight projects in the U.S. territory, a key spot in the U.S. military’s efforts to deter North Korea and counter China’s growing military. The administration has vowed it’s only delaying the...
