9-1-2020 George Soros & Son: Major Threat to Capitalism?

The Nazis, Soviets, Venezuelans, Sandanistas, Cubans, and Pol Pot leaders all referred to their governments as "socialist".  Alaska's democrats in 2016 voted to elect a socialist president.  We believe a growing segment of America's younger generation is unaware of how socialist propaganda and unrealistic promises lead to inevitable misery and eventual collapse of socialist societies.  The death of the United States as we have known it is within the grasp of her enemies, both without and within.  Only a herculean effort, equal to the commitment, sacrifice, and endurance [...]

2-8-2020 The Economic Foundation For America’s Success

Yes, America's Economic Foundation Is DOMESTIC ENERGY! by Dave Harbour We can easily imagine the poverty and adversity that would befall North America should a Bernie-style socialist become the Commander in Chief. Remember the plague of regulations and political obstacles the Obama administration created to inhibit energy exploration, production and distribution?  With a proclaimed socialist president in power, our energy strength could be decemated during just one presidential term with the rest of the economic cards falling into the collapsed foundation. For proof, just look to the destruction of [...]

5-12-16 How The Federal Government Stole Alaska’s Statehood Birthright

Even if the federal government were to restore the natural resource birthright it has stolen from the 49th State, Alaskans would STILL remain challenged.  For when its citizens enjoyed what seemed to be unlimited oil wealth 3-4 decades ago, it taxed more and spent more and more -- until it had developed an unsustainable lifestyle.  So, we do hope that great leadership can free Alaska of the federal overreaching jurisdiction and violations of due process described below.  But then, equally great leadership -- with disciplined citizen support -- must establish sustainable government services [...]

8-23-11 NOAA Chief Visits Alaska “Colony”

BING Definition of Colony: "country ruled by another: a country or area that is ruled by another country".  Alaska has 20% of America's land mass and 3/4 of her coastline.  Most of it is under federal government control.  Alaska has most of America's federally restricted lands.  Less than 2% of Alaska is owned privately, other than by Alaska Native Regional Corporations.  Yet, federal policies also impose restrictions on activity within state, private and Native lands.  Most of America's future domestic energy and strategic minerals could come from Alaska rather than from [...]
