"ALASKA UNDER SIEGE"
Our Commentary. Dan Fagan's (NGP Photo) world class video documentary should be required viewing for every Alaska citizen, member of Congress, every federal official dealing with Alaska energy and natural resource issues and our Canadian readers desiring to better understand their westerly, Northern cousin.
Part one of the series introduces the concept of federal overreaching jurisdiction in Alaska, the application of the federal ‘iron fist’ and how it is successfully clouding the potential, bright future of Alaska (and America). This part begins with the 1959 ‘Statehood Compact’, the promises made and broken, and concludes by documenting the Interior Department’s effort in late 2012 to close off half of America’s National Petroleum Reserve – Alaska to petroleum production.

Part two deals with the malfeasance, economic damage to the country and hypocrisy of federal government agencies.
Part three deals with EPA’s overreaching grab for jurisdiction of state land mining activity, and the environmental-governmental cabal that terminated Alaska’s vibrant, responsible timber industry and the 20,000 jobs and economic activity that accompanied it.
Interviews and video clips feature the EPA Administrator, Alaska’s Governors, Lieutenant Governor, State Legislators, U.S. Senators, Commissioner of Natural Resources, Alaska Native leaders, environmental advocates and business representatives.
"The Dan Fagan Show" was televised throughout Alaska from 6AM to 9AM on Fox-4 KTBY, Channel 645 in high definition, and video streamed globally on the Dan Fagan Show Facebook page. Regrettably, Fagan left the state shortly after this production was released. -dh 2-14-14
