  2. zmalfoy says:

    Looks volcanic. I have no idea, but my guess is either somewhere in Yellowstone, or the pacific northwest. . . maybe eastern CA.

    But those are guesses based on the colors of the rocks, so. . .

  3. Steve says:

    Would it be mono lake in Kalifornia.

  4. ZurichMike says:

    I am guessing in Colorado or New Mexico or Arizona.

    More about the Saudi National case:

    Beck Breaks Exclusive Information on Saudi National Once Considered a Person of Interest in Boston Bombings

    “Sources tell us this will most likely now be kicked from the DHS to the DOJ and labeled an ongoing investigation that can no longer be discussed.”

    How convenient for them…

    • Knight4GFC says:

      Wow. This whole thing stinks. A third suspect? Allowing Saudis easier access into America than I into North America? Changing the label charged to the young Saudi? switching departments so you cannot speak of this investigation? The Obamas going out of their way to visit the Saudi, rather than the bombing victims first? What the heck is going on here? Stinks. This is wrong! Who are our enemies here?

        It has been a long, long time since I have felt this level of rage. A long time. I’m off to seek the void again before I write something that recklessly endangers my OPSEC.

          • Okay let`s figure this out.

            First Publish: 4/22/2013, 10:53 AM
            Yaakov Amidror

            National Security Advisor Yaakov Amidror is scheduled to take off to Turkey Monday, for discussions with the relatives of terror-supporting activists who were killed on board the Mavi Marmara – a ship that tried to break the IDF’s blockade of Gaza on May 31, 2010.

            The IDF’s Naval Commando encountered extremely violent resistance when it boarded the ship and wound up killing nine of the people on board.

            The families of the dead activists, who were members of the IHH pro-terror group, want to receive $1 million each. IDF Radio said Israel was prepared to pay no more than $150,000 to each family.

            Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas visited Turkey over the weekend for talks with top officials including Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has sparked concern by announcing his intention to visit Hamas-ruled Gaza next month, after a trip to the United States.

            Abbas’s Ramallah-based nationalist Fatah movement, a long-time rival to the Islamist Hamas, has criticized Erdogan’s Gaza trip as fostering intra-Palestinian Authority divisions.

            Okay so that is $150,000.00 per terrorist. Research firms suggest the actual Muslim figure is around 98%: There are about 120,000 people of different Christian denominations (well at least when they came up with this figure which I am sure is much less now), including an estimated 80,000 Oriental Orthodox,[151] 35,000 Roman Catholics,[152] 5,000 Greek Orthodox[151] and smaller numbers of Protestants. Population 2013: 75,627,384 x 98%=74,114,836 x $150,000 = $11,117,225,400,000.00
            So I wonder how long Israel is going to take to come up with 11.2 trillion dollars?

          • Kerry is a monster for making that comparison. I can’t believe it. 👿

    • And they (OUR USA) want to do extensive background checks on it`s own civilians? WTH is wrong with doing a better job on some of these types first? Maybe then again they do huh?

    • Knight4GFC says:

      These guys need to be taken out of our country. We shouldn’t be tolerating this. This does not reflect America.

      • barnslayer says:

        “taken out”… is it okay if we interpret that as we see fit?

        • Knight4GFC says:

          Well… lets just put it this way. The Constitution gives us the right to protect ourselves from the enemies, within and without. So what constitutes as our “enemies”? Anyone who doesn’t believe in the way our country was formed, in the way we live our free lives, and the way our democracy works, and then wishes all these and our morals and principles that our country was founded on, destroyed. If you believe these things, you are my enemy, period! You do not belong here.

  9. Knight4GFC says:

    My best guess of the lake in the OT picture, is Mono Lake.

    • Knight4GFC says:

      Well, I tell you what, if and when, we become subjects of tyranny, just know that this use of force and more will come for you. Especially if you are Christian and believe in the Constitution. Even if you are not armed. Yes, we are already being called by some as right-wing extremists. Next label? Terrorists. Because we promote a dangerous, radical, and fundamental belief – “patriotism”.

    • Ugh! Monday morning and I’M ALREADY SICK of all the TRAITORS!!!

    • barnslayer says:

      I’m guessing those with close ties to the Saudi leadership were given a hug and sent back home on our dime. The rest will have to wait until White House staff positions or professor jobs at Columbia, Harvard become available.

    • texan59 says:

      I was stuck listening to Beck this morning upon my return from el Gordito and he was walking through all of this. It made me sick to my stomach. As far as that goes, those involved in Dubya’s regime should also be arrested and tried for treason just as those in the current admin. It won’t happen, but if any of us tried anything like this, we would be thrown under the jail. Maybe someone smarter than me can explain our lovefest with the Saudi’s. There has to be a lot more than oil.
