Parnell broke the law.

The Republican Primary was a disappointment. In more ways than one. Not only did Parnell receive the nod to move on to the General Election, but he was given a free pass on his violation of his oath of office. Parnell has violated Article II Sec. 5 of the Constitution of the State of Alaska, not once, but twice. Now, we hear that it may actually have been 3 times with the appointment of a State employee to Dahlstrom's seat.

Parnell has deferred owing up to his indiscretions by alleging that he acted upon the advice of an unnamed junior attorney at the Dept. of Law. This excuse completely ignores the fact that Sean Parnell is a lawyer himself. What? He no longer understands the Constitution, much less now apparently has a diminished capacity to understand the English language?

Art. II Sec. 5:
§ 5. Disqualifications

"No legislator may hold any other office or position of profit under the United States or the State. During the term for which elected and for one year thereafter, no legislator may be nominated, elected, or appointed to any other office or position of profit which has been created, or the salary or emoluments of which have been increased, while he was a member. This section shall not prevent any person from seeking or holding the office of governor, secretary of state, or member of Congress. This section shall not apply to employment by or election to a constitutional convention."

What part of "for one year after" does not this governor understand? I think the provision is very clear. Gee, even I understand it.

What I find most disturbing are those who voted for both Joe Miller as a strong constitutionalist versus Lisa Murkowski as the compromised insider who ignored the Constitution. Yet, many of these folks voted for Parnell. How does one reconcile that paradox?

Sarah Palin campaigned on a platform that included integrity. Sean Parnell cannot lay claim to that, given his violation of the State's Constitution, to which he swore an oath to uphold and defend. Which, given the Dahlstrom and Therriault affairs, he did not.

How could one vote for Miller, then vote for Parnell?

How could one then claim the moral and legal high ground over the Obama/Pelosi/Reid trashing of our national Constitution?

Another excuse that I heard was that Faibanks and North Pole hold former Sen. Gene Therriault in such high regard that they were willing to ignore the fact of the constitutional affront by his appointment on the part of Governor Parnell.

Allegedly, the Palin crowd was also a factor, voting for Joe Miller, and then voting for Parnell due to his association with Sarah. Let me remind that Sarah Palin did not select Sean Parnell during the 2006 Primary. Parnell won the slot as her Lt. Gov. by winning the Primary. That he did on his own. I do not recall Sarah Palin going out of her way for Parnell’s election.

The only conclusion to be drawn is that these folks hold the Constitution of the State of Alaska in such low regard that it can be violated with impunity by a sitting governor, so long as that governor is Republican?

There are those who believe in "my party, right or wrong". I am not one of those. I believe in the rule of LAW.

If one can violate one's oath with impunity, then what's next?

I am more than worried about the integrity of the Alaska Republican voter and the hypocrisy demonstrated in this election. Even more troubling is the lack of integrity and honor demonstrated by our current Governor.

Will the new Legislature have the courage to impeach this governor, if he prevails in the General Election?

The President's relgion and the Mosque at 911

Barack Obama is a Muslim. He practiced the religion in Indonesia, and, according to the tenets of Islam, once a Muslim, always a Muslim. Otherwise, he is apostate and subject to death. . . .

Yeah, the religion of tolerance is tolerant only to . . . whom and what?

Islam means submission. Period. You submit to Islam. You do not practice Islam, you submit to Islam . . . or, you die. You have a choice, convert or die. Of course, the followers of the "book", meaning the Hebrew Pentateuch or Old Testament,may pay a tax and live a life as a second class citizen. However, that does not necessarily remove one from the cross hairs or the neck from the sword.

Animists, humanists, pagans, Buddhists, Hindus and atheists are simply dead under Islam. I mean as in killed. There is not quarter for them. Convert, or die. Most will die.

Homosexuals will be subject to flogging or death. The Koran calls for public beatings, but in most Muslim countries hanging or beating to death seems to be the norm.

Why homosexuals seem to think that they would fair better under Islam is beyond me. I do not know of any Christian pastors who have called for physical harm to homosexuals, apostates or . . . liberals.

Liberals will be offered the choice and most will convert. They are cowards who will just "want to get along". In doing so, they will rejoice that Islam will allow them to act out their angst against conservative folk. Islam serves those with a grudge and allows them to act out that angst with impunity, as long as they do so in the name of Allah.

Those who practice rape will love Islam. Ask any Christian woman in any country where Islam is the dominant religion. Take your pick of tolerant Islamic countries. In Egypt, Coptic women are raped to show them how wrong they are in their beliefs. Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, wherever Islam is practiced, there is this abuse of women. Rape is also a tool to reign in the female Muslim who fails to wear proper dress.

Honor killings are also allowed. Have a grudge against your aunt or your sister? Accuse her of improper behavior, and she is toast. Even in this country, this horrific conduct has happened.

We have let into our midst this backwards, intolerant, ignorant religion and its third world practitioners. Those who practice honor killings of their daughters and wives, those who kill others simply because they are not of the same faith or kill them because they are of another sect of Islam, and under Islam, the use of rape as a tool to keep women in line. WE LET THIS IN?!!!!!

Now, those who subscribe to this abhorrent religion want to add insult to injury and build a mosque upon sacred ground. They want to erect a monument to their cowardly act of murder. They killed 3,000 Americans in name of Allah. And, our President backs this project.

Why not? He is one of "them".

Once a Muslim, always a Muslim. He may have sat in a Christian Church, but Barack Hussein Obama was never a Christian. The penalty for apostasy under Islam is death. He knows this. He literally the Manchurian Candidate. A shill, an impostor, one who wants to harm this country. How can he be otherwise, given his record and the record of his acts as President? Bowing before foreign despots?

My ancestors fought a revolution, one commanded the Continental Army and served as the 1st President. It is time we consider the need to refresh the Tree of Liberty. First with words and votes. Barring any success there, to do as George Washington admonished us to have the courage to do. The real reason we have the Second Amendment.

If the election of 2012 does not end the term of the Muslim Obama, then our Republic will truly be in peril.

Have we come to this?

Dan Fagan, commentator and pundit with an afternoon radio show went into a screaming hissy fit today that was one for the record books. Dan is a showman, first of all, and an alleged conservative—or so he says. He called Bill Walker’s supporters commies and socialists. Those are exactly the terms that he used.

Why did this otherwise, articulate, experienced, and knowledgeable reporter go off the deep end?

Apparently, Dan Fagan reacted to the yes or no requirement put to the candidates by the moderator at the Resource Development Council forum held today. The candidates could only answer yes or no.

Fagan billed his revelation as proof positive that Walker was a socialist and union schill who could not possibly be a conservative.
Apparently, unbeknownst to Fagan at the time of his hissy fit, Bill Walker followed up on the answer in an interview by ADN report Sean Cockerham post the debate at the Resource Development Council Governor’s Forum today. What Fagan did not have to pass on was the “rest of the story”.

This is what Walker was quoted as saying in the ADN:
Q—How did you vote on the 2006 gas reserve initiative? Yes, no or prefer not to say. (The question was about a proposal to tax North Slope natural gas reserves until a pipeline was built to bring them to market. It could have imposed up to $1 billion annual tax on the gas under land leased primarily by Exxon Mobil, BP and Conoco Phillips, most in the Prudhoe Bay and Point Thomson fields.)

Walker – Yes (Walker said in an interview after the forum that “we wanted to get the gas moving, the only thing we were missing for a gasline at that point was gas. At that point in time that looked like it was the way to go. I don’t believe that is the way to go at this point, the way at this point is to create the infrastructure. The producers have said…we will ship if there is a reasonable expectation of profit

Fagan is an accomplished reporter. He should have asked Bill Walker directly before labeling—slandering—Walker and his supports as commies and socialists in fit of outrage over a an absolute answer that was designed to reflect an absolutist position that did not apply to Walker. It should be stated that Walker has never served in the Legislature.

The Dan Fagan Show, on KFQD in the afternoon heavily promotes Ralph Samuels for governor.

Ralph Samuels is recognized as being in Third Place, folks, that’s why Fagan jumped without first “looking”. Fagan’s boy is losing, even with Rick Rydell on Keni 650 AM and Dan Fagan and Dave Stierens on KFQD 750 AM all pushing Ralph Samuels like he is our Savior and the only conservative running.

Fortunately, people are not stupid.

Former Rep. Ralph Samuels received over $10,000 from Bill Allen of VECO fame. This same former representative voted for the biggest capital budgets in the State’s history prior to Parnell’s whale of a budget. Those budgets included an increase in the size of state government by 800 employees. Yet, these “good conservatives” all tout Samuels as a fiscal conservative.

Yeah, well, if Samuels was a fiscal conservative, then I guess that would make Sarah Palin a fiscal conservative.

Samuels has also touted his leadership abilities. As House Majority Leader, his was the only vote against AGIA, Palin’s gas pipeline initiative. The only vote. In a House and Senate that did not really support or like Sarah Palin. Why was Ralph’s vote the only vote? When the going gets tough, and the objective is not what the troops want to achieve, a good leader picks up the pack and rifle and says, we gotta do it . . . let’s go. And, the troops either respect the leader enough to obey, or they don’t. Samuels stood alone. That shows me that he is not the hero that these guys continually represent him as, if he could not garner one additional vote in support of his position.

Samuels supports the bullet line, widely held by industry and the State to be too expensive to be competitive to imported LNG for Cook Inlet. That the bullet line would double the cost of natural gas in south central. How is that an economic plan?

Samuels also supports Conoco/BP’s Denali project. A gasline that does not have a market, and will take everything, the jobs, the money, the majority of the infrastructure to Canada. How is that putting Alaska first? How is that acting in concert with Article 8 Sec. 2 of Alaska’s Constitution? In this regard, Samuels shares common ground with Parnell.

Parnell supports AGIA, another take it all to Canada plan, and also supports the bullet line. Of course Parnell also considers himself above the law, given his problems with his appointment of legislators to the Governror’s office. These appointments were made in violation of Article 2 of the Constitution of the State of Alaska. How can we have a Governor who holds himself above the law?

Therefore, why does Fagan and the others try to paint the only gubernatorial candidate as other than what he really is? The only conservative running for the office of the governor of Alaska who will put Alaska and Alaskans first? And, who has a viable pipeline plan that 138,000 Alaskans mandated by vote in 2002?

If this man is a commie and an socialist to Dan Fagan, then Walker has good company in that regard. Given Ralph’s record, Rydell, Stierens and Fagan will have reconsider their labeling Sarah Palin as a RINO.

This race is too crucial for such silliness.

When TAPS falls to 300,000 bpd of oil, the system will be shut down. The problem of the oil companies going elsewhere is not ACES, but a combination of taxes, regulations and litigation . . . and, a world wide recession that reduced the demand for oil.

As a result of the regulatory environment, of which taxes are a part, and the litigatory environmental greenie assault on the oil industry through the courts, the oil companies went wherever they could work with as little environmental and regulatory hassle as possible. They went for as little as $1 per barrel of profit.
Yet, according to the pundits, it was all because of ACES.

Male bovine offal.

Alaskans must be informed. Please take the time to attend forums and read the websites of the various candidates. Listen to the pundits, but take what they say with a grain of salt. Fagan did his credibility a great deal of harm today by calling good people something that they are not: commies and socialists.

Fagan owes Bill Walker and his supports an apology and his listeners an apology for his acting without the “rest of the story”.
