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.

Sarah Palin videoed herself *not* “ranking the red,” unlike Nick Begich who did vote for her as his 2nd choice. Is Sarah still more about Sarah than doing what’s right?

Sarah could end up being a spoiler: entering the race late, splitting the conservative vote, and now not ranking the red (in rank ‘stinky’ choice voting), which could give us liberal Mary Peltola as Alaska’s only congressperson.

“For Palin to rank herself and herself only tells me everything I need to know about her, when you’re debating on whether she’s in it for country or is in it for herself.” – Dan Fagan on the Dan Fagan Show, 8/15/22, minute-1:42:00

Palin voted on Thursday in the Valley. An anecdotal sampling of voters is showing that Palin voters are voting for her and not ranking anyone else on the three-person special general election ballot. As Palin marked her ballot on the video she posted, she, too, only voted for herself and did not rank either Nick Begich or Mary Peltola. There was no “rank the red” on her ballot.

Sen. Reinbold on Dan Fagan’s discussion with Rep. Kurka — “He is a good person; has great potential, but he’s not quite ready for the governorship”

I do like Christopher Kurka. I think he is a good person, and he has great potential, but he’s not quite ready for the governorship. –Sen. Lora Reinbold

While Christopher Kurka tried to explain to Dan Fagan why he didn’t vote for the PFD, on air, minute-2:02:30 below, Lora Reindbold was on hold, waiting to be next, so she heard the entire Kurka/Fagan discussion. Dan asked Lora if he was right in holding Kurka’s feet to the fire. I transcribed what was said. Continue reading “Sen. Reinbold on Dan Fagan’s discussion with Rep.

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

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.

Dan Fagan: Non-profits can be more of a force for bad than good – Rasmusson Foundation example

Wealthy people often start tax exempt foundations to shelter their money so they don’t have to pay taxes.

“The non-profit community is always looking for tax dollars,” which they then give matching grants to. [To push their agenda – ed.]

“I personally believe the Rasmusson Foundation is a force for bad more than a force for good. I’m not saying all they do is bad, but as the general overall picture, I would say they cause more harm than good because they enable that bad behavior.”

“It’s the non-profit community that drives much of that government bloat and waste.” Continue reading “Dan Fagan: Non-profits can be more of a force for bad than good – Rasmusson Foundation example”

Dan Fagan: “They raided Trump’s home! The games are over! It’s no longer an option to watch Netflix all night”

Dan was on fire this morning, 8/9/2022. Some quotes I transcribed:

“8/8/2022, yesterday will be the day that we moved closer to a banana republic than imaginable when the FBI raided Donald Trump’s home.”

“Do not dismiss the significance of what happened in America yesterday.”

“We are at war. The games are over. They raided Donald Trump’s home!”

“It’s no longer an option to sit on our couch and watch Netflix all night, and not pay attention to what’s going on in the world.” Continue reading “Dan Fagan: “They raided Trump’s home! The games are over! It’s no longer an option to watch Netflix all night””

Antidepressant destroys marriage after wife takes Cymbalta — Blocked her feelings, couldn’t cry anymore, became a combat driver

Monte @ 33:20:

“My wife got on the Cymbalta. Before that, she followed me anywhere, and did anything I said. It was always my idea to lead. I brought us up here. … When the doctor gave her that Cymbalta, it blocked her feelings. She didn’t cry no more. Her father died, and she didn’t even cry when her daddy died. I saw right then how much it changed her.

Also, in her driving, she was a slow driver, mellow. When she took that Cymbalta, buddy, she was the first one away from those red lights. She was a combat driver. She just turned into a different person with that Cymbalta.

That’s why she’s no longer here anymore, Dan.” Continue reading “Antidepressant destroys marriage after wife takes Cymbalta — Blocked her feelings, couldn’t cry anymore, became a combat driver”

Dan Fagan: Do what’s right despite the hate!

“If there was a pill that you could take so you wouldn’t care what people thought about you; you would only do what you believe is right…. I would take that pill every morning.”

“If you want to be formidable, if you want to make a difference, if you want to leave a mark, if you want to advance the cause of freedom, you have to be able to say: I’m going to do this; people will hate me; don’t care, going to do it anyway because I believe it’s the right thing to do.” Continue reading “Dan Fagan: Do what’s right despite the hate!”

A leftist called into the show, using profanity. Dan’s response at 2:11:00:

We are at war. Marxists, swamp creatures, and media elites are firebombing all that is good about America. Now is not the time to vote for childish, stars in their eyes, kooky drama queens like Palin.”

Dan Fagan: Loving our enemies, Chris Constant, etc. — No Hate

I transcribed some of what Dan Fagan said on his June 13th show (audio below).

Dan was going through Alaska’s election results for Congress, and came across Christopher Constant’s few percent. Dan explains the proper response.

“Now Christopher Constant. … I know it’s easy to hate the left. … They make our lives harder when they get into power. [He mentioned grocery store prices now.] So it’s easy to say ‘I hate these people….’ But we have to really guard our hearts.

Dan Fagan: Dunleavy appoints Alice Rogoff’s daughter to Alaska Permanent Fund Board of Trustees

There’s no single individual alive today who has hurt the financial bottom line of Alaskans more than former Anchorage Daily News publisher and owner Alice Rogoff.

The ignoring of the statutory formula Permanent Fund dividend calculation that is on the books has cost Alaska families’ tens of thousands of dollars over the past several years. The vision to raid the Permanent Fund Earnings account shrinking Alaskans yearly dividends was birthed in the heart of Alice Rogoff.

Back in 2014, with her vast wealth, Rogoff vaulted herself into a kingmaker. She was instrumental in creating the so-called “Unity Ticket” in the governor’s race. Rogoff, behind the scenes, worked with Big Labor bosses and other swamp creatures to create the Bill Walker-Byron Mallott ticket to run against Republican incumbent Gov. Sean Parnell.

Dan Fagan: The War is Between Sanity and Insanity

“You have to count your victories. You have to cherish them. You have to credit people when they have the boldness to advance the cause of sanity. Because that’s the war we’re fighting. It’s insanity verses sanity. This idea that boys can compete with girls is insane. Last night in the Mat-Su school district, they voted you must be a female to participate in female athletics.” – Dan Fagan, 6/16/22 Continue reading “Dan Fagan: The War is Between Sanity and Insanity”

“So much of the left is first order thinkers — meaning they never get past step one. The goal is ‘hey, wouldn’t it be great if we were all equal?’ Therefore, they’ll print money and hand it out? They don’t get past that step. What’s the unintended consequences? What’s going to happen next? ‘Well, we don’t know. We just think this is a good social justice outcome.’ That’s the left.

It sounds good at the surface, and it completely breaks down when you move to the next step.” – Nick Begich at minute-33: Continue reading “Nick Begich: Many of the left are first order thinkers — don’t consider unintended consequences”

“So we know Dan Sullivan has endorsed Lisa Murkowski. He said ‘they make a great team.’ Now he’s endorsing Tara Sweeney, who is basically Lisa Murkowski. They’re the same people.

Tara Sweeny’s husband, Kevin Sweeney is basically Lisa Murkowski’s right-hand man and a very close advisor. Folks, if there is any doubt about Dan Sullivan now, I don’t know what else you need to know.”
