Anchorage Assembly eliminates public participation at start of meetings

Mike Porcaro and Crash discussed this on the Mike Porcaro Show on 9/28, snarked that the Assembly will now surround the dais with a moat, and will sit on Kings and Queens chairs.

Dan Fagan read this article during his 9/29 show, calling pompous Christopher Constant, who pushed this, “King Christopher.”

Shutting the public down: Anchorage Assembly eliminates public participation at start of meetings

By Suzanne Downing -September 28, 2022

The half hour that has been reserved for audience participation during the early part of the Anchorage Assembly meetings is no more. The Assembly majority has killed it with a stealth move.

AO 2022-82 passed on Tuesday night, with a surprise amendment from Assemblyman Chris Constant, removing the “initial audience participation” that was given one half hour after some early business was taken care of by the Assembly. There will be a limited time for a member of the public to speak if that person has made an appearance request in advance. At this point, the reservations for those appearances are limited to three people, for three minutes each.

The title of the ordinance didn’t suggest that audience participation would be limited. That came from the surprise amendment by Constant, which passed. Assemblyman Felix Rivera, who usually votes with the leftist majority, broke from the majority to vote against the amendment.

Alaskan Town That Lives In One Building – Isolated From The World 🇺🇸

Whittier is a fascinating and gorgeous town 60 miles from Anchorage on Prince William Sound, accessible by tunnel and ocean only. I’ve been there many times, and have thoroughly checked out his WWII building where almost everyone lives, because it’s literally bombproof tough.

I once experienced 80 mph winds in winter there. Parked cars were visibly moving back and forth. Whittier gets a lot of wind because of the location between Prince William Sound and Turnagain Arm, where the wind funnels through. When it’s calm in summer, it’s a gem. I photographed a nearby waterfall, and made a big print, when I was still doing photography.

Video says:

1.5 hours southwest of Anchorage is a town accessed only through a tunnel under a glacier or by sea. A place where almost all of the residents live in one self-contained building with a school, store, church, USPS, and everything it takes to live under one roof. Join me as we meet some of the interesting people who live there.

Alaska Sen. Shelley Hughes: Working WITH legislators WITHOUT holding grudges, PRAYING FOR those who have done questionable things!

Sen. Shelley Hughes @ 9:00 – “Another thing I have employed in my role is to really try to work with everyone in the legislature without holding grudges, even if someone has done something that maybe is questionable, is to really have a good attitude, even when it would be easy to get resentful about things. And my trick for that — I am a person of faith — if somebody has done something wrong, instead of letting that resentment build up, I actually pray for that person. And it really changes my mindset, and keeps my attitude. I think having good relationships has paid off.”

Palin’s histrionics: Questions are being asked — can candidate Nick Begich in all good faith recommend that voters rank second the person who is calling him “Baggage”? Or did Palin on Sunday self-immolate? Her Sunday public display has the whole state talking about her stability.

Low Vitamin D Linked to Depressed Teens – Simple Solution to a Very Big Problem — Many put on antidepressants instead

1:50 “This is a very simple solution to a very big problem. Unfortunately, a lot of kids are put on antidepressant medication, when I think they should just take some vitamin D.”

DATA: Depressed adolescents in a case-series were low in vitamin D and depression was ameliorated by vitamin D supplementation
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22372…

A study I read recently talked about how vitamin D levels could be linked to depressed teens. A few symptoms linked to a vitamin D deficiency are sadness, hopelessness, loss of interest, loss of concentration, and even thoughts of suicide.

Potential causes of a vitamin D deficiency in teens:
Not getting enough sun
• Not consuming enough vegetables (not enough magnesium)
• Snacking (insulin resistance blocks vitamin D)
• A high carb diet (fructose blocks vitamin D)
Obesity (increases the need for vitamin D)
Darker skin blocks vitamin D absorption

Other symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency:
• Achy joints
• Low back pain
• Lethargy
• Insomnia
• Anxiety

Natural remedies:
Vitamin D (10,000 IUs)
• Magnesium
• Vitamin K2

Forrest Dunbar knows best: Anchorage Assembly decides public will not have right to vote on Clerk’s position

From: Suzanne Downing, Must Read Alaska

Anchorage Assemblyman Forrest Dunbar told his fellow Assembly members last week that not only should the public not be allowed to vote on an ordinance that would ask voters if they want the Municipal Clerk to be elected, he didn’t even want to hear the public testimony on it.

The public, Dunbar said, spews misinformation about elections, and he was opposed to allowing the citizens to speak.

The ordinance, AO 2022-13, was offered by Mayor Dave Bronson in response to the discontent among many Anchorage voters about how elections are managed in Anchorage. The Clerk, who oversees Anchorage’s controversial elections, is beholden to a highly partisan Assembly. If elected, she would be responsible to the people.

FUN STUFF: ALASKA BY TRAIN — NORTH from Anchorage!

I’ve only taken the short train ride to Whittier from Portage, but Mom and her sister took this, and I’ve driven everywhere by road, except the dirt road to the north slope.

The trip south of Anchorage to Seward may be even more scenic, along the Turnagain Arm especially, but it’s driveable, as the road parallels the train, mostly.

The outside viewing platform is indeed super nice, and allows photographing without having to shoot through windows.

Great adventures I always recommend are fllying from Talkeetna to Mt. Denali above the Ruth glacier for about 50 miles, flanked by mountains on both sides, and maybe landing on the glacier. Ruth glacier looks like a giant, 1-mile wide, white freeway with many crevasses below us.

The pilot cranks down the skis by hand after leaving the runway in Talkeetna to land on the glacier.

Flying around the mountain in addition is also amazing, which hardly anyone does. Few realize this shows the highest, unobstructed vertical drop in the world; though, at an angle, because Denali doesn’t have foothills, like Mt. Everest, etc.. I’ve only done that once.

Another amazing adventure is the 26 Glacier Tour out of Whittier, south of Anchorage. Pristine and highly recommended!

“‘The Undertaker’ is alive and well” – Cathy Giessel leads Roger Holland in Alaska Primary

‘The Undertaker’ is alive and well,” says the announcer. People are so easily deceived these days, sadly — as if many don’t want to live in reality — as in WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment).

Roger Holland needs to tell the truth about Cathy Giessel, or she’ll be able to resume her machinations.

People need to pray for the truth to be revealed about everyone and everything.

So many lies these days, especially from the subversive media.

Truth Matters!

“Senate Seat E: This is a south Hillside district in Anchorage, and incumbent Republican Sen. Roger Holland was surprised by former Sen. Cathy Giessel, a Bill Walker-endorsing Republican, getting ahead of him. Giessel has 36.12% and Holland has 31.23%, with the Democrat taking about 32%.” Continue reading ““‘The Undertaker’ is alive and well” – Cathy Giessel leads Roger Holland in Alaska Primary”

Dan Fagan: “Murkowski is a general in the movement to promote the culture of death through abortion in America”

Related: Lisa Murkowski on Abortion

Murkowski is a general in the movement to promote the culture of death through abortion in America.

Murkowski, who has been a champion of abortion, can still do the right thing

Sept. 20, 2020

By Dan Fagan

Planned Parenthood President Cecil Richards praised Murkowski in 2017 when the Alaska senator cast the deciding vote that blocked President Donald Trump’s attempt to repeal Obamacare. Murkowski voted against the repeal because the bill called for defunding Planned Parenthood. Imagine being so loyal to Planned Parenthood you’re willing to save Obamacare for it.

In 2018, Murkowski was one of just two Republicans to vote against a federal ban on abortions after 20 weeks and up to the day of birth. But Murkowski’s most consequential move to preserve the barbaric killing of millions of American babies came when she refused in 2018 to vote to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Murkowski ‘birth control pills’ ad lies about Kelly Tshibaka. Kelly MUST counter with the TRUTH!

Tyrant, Anchorage Assemblyperson Meg Zaletel WON her re-election by RUNNING an ad with LIES about Cathy Henslee, who didn’t counter with an ad that told the truth. Kelly needs to counter Murkowski’s ad NOW, showing Alaskans that Murkowski is openly lying and slandering her, or Murkowski could win by lying. If Murkowski doesn’t see Kelly standing up to her, she may run even more lying ads.

Kelly was recently on the Dan Fagan show and didn’t even mention this. Why not? She should be clearing her name in every way possible.

Gimarc: Sen. Murkowski shares Anchorage hallway with Alaskans for Lisa and Ballot Measure 2 author Scott Kendall. There’s nothing fishy about that?

Alaskans for LISA is pro-Lisa Murkowski Super PAC currently running ads attacking Kelly Tshibaka for wanting to shut down by-mail birth control pills, something Tshibaka vehemently denies.

The only thing in question regarding birth control is distribution of morning-after pills by mail and without prescription. Essentially, those drugs induce a miscarriage, complete with blood and passage of the fetus. Miscarriages typically lead to a hospital visit. Proponents of artificial ones aren’t mentioning this little fact.

Sen. Lora Reinbold: Why I’m done with Done-leavy! – He imposed fear, shots and masks; stood down, not tall to tyranny!

Alaska State Senator Lora Reinbold wrote this on her Facebook page, 7/25/22 about Gov. Dunleavy:

Another reason why I’m done with Done-leavy! He was not true to his campaign promises keeping Alaska “open for business” — instead he unconstitutionally shut us down, closed private & public schools, forced masks in all state buildings, viciously attacked me as I questioned his 18 unnecessary & unconstitutional mandates.

The Done-leavy administration has a bizarre obsession with ineffective & potentially very harmful mrna shots via Dr Zink & Commisioner Crum. Sadly Alaskans shut their business & lost their jobs as he imposed fear & was silent to the cries of Alaskans. Mike Dunleavy was very loyal to special interests. He bloated budgets, cut the PFD and originally voted for Sb91 crime bill & has a pro Sb91 individual (Jordan) helping manage his campaign. He stood down, not tall to tyranny!

Vote Charlie Pierce for Governor who kept Kenai Peninsula Open & Lt Gov & Col Grunwald who will be tough on crime!
