Pedophile Who ‘Killed Elderly Couple and Raped Two-Year-Old’ Had Been Released From Prison for Almost Identical Attack Just HOURS Earlier

A man charged with murdering an elderly couple and sexually assaulting their two year old grandchild had been released from prison just hours earlier after serving time for a similar attack.

Jerry Active, 24, broke in to the house where Touch Chea, 71, and his wife, Sorn Sreap, 73, were babysitting their granddaughter and allegedly beat the couple to death and raped the little girl.

The toddler’s parents returned to their home in Anchorage, Alaska, on Saturday night to find Active naked in their bedroom with the two-year-old.

A few hours earlier Active had been released on probation after serving part of a seven-year sentence for a similar crime committed in 2009.

Active broke into a house and sexually assaulted an 11-year-old while her parents were asleep, before attacking three members of the family.

Why I Am Voting Against Marijuana Commercialization in Fairbanks

Have you wondered how we got to this point, where just recently the Planning Commission approved a grow operation in a residential neighborhood, with most of the neighborhood coming out, and hundreds of pages of documentation on the problems with this facility including falsehoods in the application itself?

I realized recently where the disconnect came from. A few years ago, the assembly set up the zoning regulations for marijuana businesses. The mayor at the time had come in with pretty strict buffer zones like we had done before with strip clubs. The assembly decimated those buffer distances and how they were measured (and since then has made the method even more tilted in the marijuana businesses’ favor). One thing the assembly did do, though, is recognize that they didn’t have a good defense for residential neighborhoods, so they amended the ordinance to add a conditional use process for those operations in general use zoning areas that were adjacent to a lot with a residence on it.

A conditional use process notifies everyone in a certain radius of a public hearing before the Planning Commission (with regular zoning permits there is no zoning notification to the neighbors). The intent of putting this amendment in there was so that the Planning Commission would look carefully at the neighborhood, and if they determined it was residential in character, they could deny the permit. There have been conditional use permits denied in the past for other reasons. The disconnect seemed to occur because that intent didn’t get communicated to the Planning Commission. At the time, there was a lot of turnover on the commission and a lot of training going on, and what came out is that many of the members now believe that if something meets the code otherwise, then it should be given that permit.

Think about that, if we only had to determine if something met the regular permit part of the zoning code, then why would we have a conditional use hearing at all. The Planning Department could just take care of that, as they do with regular permits.

So now we’re at this point where extremely weak zoning regulations combined with inadequate decisions from the Planning Commission have resulted in all conditional use permits for marijuana businesses in residential neighborhoods being approved. The problem now is that even if the assembly fixed that, which it hasn’t shown any interest in doing, then those places would still be grandfathered in and degrading those residential neighborhoods, their property values, and their desire for a peaceful life.

After that approval has happened, the assembly still has the full discretion to protest a license based on the fact that it doesn’t fit the residential character of the neighborhood. While the assembly has been notified when those establishments are in residential neighborhoods, they have yet to exercise that discretion and protect any of them.

So the propositions on the ballot are completely about the overreach of government allowing these places to be put in residential neighborhoods and next to schools, churches, day cares, youth centers, drug treatment facilities, and other sensitive uses. The opposition has tried to raise the specter of businesses being put out of business, but I hope everybody realizes that those business owners all knew this was coming and chose to take the risk anyway. It’s also been seen that not only do the taxes not cover the cost of regulation but also that we have loopholes in the law, like Colorado, that will enable many to get around the taxes.

State law protects an initiative for two years from being modified by the assembly, but after that they can change it as they like. So, if you vote “yes” on borough Proposition 1 or city of Fairbanks Proposition A, then it’ll effectively be like hitting the reset button. They can come back in two years with much better zoning laws protecting residential neighborhoods and re-implement the businesses.

If you’re still on the fence, please consider that the industry-controlled state Marijuana Control Board is about to allow on-site consumption, which was not legally allowed by the 2014 voter initiative that legalized marijuana. That will allow people to drive into or next to your neighborhood and smoke pot right there. They are allowed to stay open until 5 a.m. and can open at 8 a.m. This will add a level of misery to what your neighborhood will already be experiencing beyond what you’ve already read about in the recent letters to the editor.

We get one chance to protect our neighborhoods. Please vote “yes” on Proposition 1 or Proposition A.

Lisa Murkowski Extorts Senate’s Obamacare Repeal Over Medicaid Exception for Alaska Natives

By MJ Lee, Lauren Fox, Phil Mattingly and Tami Luhby. As the Republican Party’s last-ditch effort to repeal Obamacare hangs by a thread, a revised version of the Graham-Cassidy bill was circulated to Senate Republicans on Sunday with the aim of winning over key votes. . .

And time is ticking. The vehicle that Republicans are using that allows them to advance a bill without any Democratic support is set to expire at the end of September, making the next several days critical.

[In response to Murkowski’s demands,] the revised bill says Native Americans and Alaska Natives enrolled in Medicaid expansion prior to 2020 could continue to be eligible after that point, according to documents circulated Sunday night to senior Senate aides and obtained by CNN. The state’s sizeable native population and that group’s unique health needs has been a serious concern for Murkowski.

It’s All Coming Down to Liar Murkowski Again

By Tami Luhby and MJ Lee. Sen. Lisa Murkowski could determine the fate of the Republican Party’s last-ditch effort to repeal Obamacare.

Sound familiar? The Alaska Republican has been here before.

It was less than two months ago that Murkowski was one of three GOP senators to vote against legislation to gut the Affordable Care Act, effectively killing her Republican colleagues’ campaign to repeal the health care law . . . (Read more from “It’s All Coming Down to Liar Murkowski Again” HERE)

Vatican Recalls U.S. Diplomat in Child Porn Investigation

A senior member of the Vatican U.S. embassy staff in Washington was recalled after a request from U.S. prosecutors for him to be charged and tried in a child pornography case, Vatican and U.S. officials said.

The diplomat, a priest, is suspected of possessing, though not producing or disseminating, child pornography, including images of prepubescent children, the Associated Press reported, citing a U.S. source who is familiar with the investigation and speaking on the condition of anonymity.

The Vatican said in a statement on Friday that U.S. State Department notified the Vatican Secretariat of State of “a possible violation of laws relating to child pornography images.”

The Holy See said it recalled the priest in keeping with the practice of sovereign states, and that he is currently in Vatican City. (Read more from “Vatican Recalls U.S. Diplomat in Child Porn Investigation” HERE)

UAF: Impossible That WTC Building 7 Collapsed by Small Fires as Claimed by NIST

The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) was tasked with investigating how World Trade Center 7 fell on 9/11; the findings were live-streamed a few days ago. The team found that WTC 7 did not fall due to fire, contradicting NIST who said the building collapsed from structural damages due to the fire.

The presentation was presented by Dr. Leroy Hulsey. Hulsey spoke about the building, its design, as well as the methods the team used to determine their first of two conclusions. The first part of the experiment is finished; the UAF team found that WTC7 did not collapse due to fire. The next part of the study is to map out the building’s structural system’s response and what would have had to happen in order for it to fall down. The report was published on Thursday on the UAF’s website.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) opened an investigation into the collapses of WTC 1, WTC 2, and WTC 7 in August 2002. NIST released its final report on WTC 7 in 2008, finding that the fires that were ignited by falling debris from WTC 1 caused the collapse of WTC 7. Independent researchers, however, have assembled evidence that has raised profound questions regarding the notion that WTC 7 collapsed because of fire.

The study was backed by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth; the researchers used a virtual model of the building to conduct the investigation.

Last year, Activist Post talked to the Director of Strategy and Development for A&E 9/11 Truth, Ted Walter, who is also in charge of working with the professor and raised the money to fund the WTC 7 Evaluation. Walter previously told Activist Post that “the project began in May 2015 and should wrap up in April of next year.” That deadline was passed but the study should wrap up in October according to the project’s website.

The reported failure was simulated using three-dimensional finite element computer models of the building. The research team studied the building’s response using two finite element programs, ABAQUS and SAP2000 version 18.

Three types of evaluations were performed:

1. the planar response of the structural elements to the fire(s) using wire elements.
2. the building’s response using the NIST’s approach with solid elements; and lastly.
3. the validity of NIST’s findings using solid elements. At the macro-level, progressive collapse, i.e., the structural system’s response to local failures, is being studied using SAP2000 with wire elements, as well as with ABAQUS, and it is near completion.

The study concluded:

“The findings thus far are that fire did not bring down this building. Building failure simulations show that, to match observation, the entire inner core of this building failed nearly simultaneously,” the website for the study noted.

The building’s structural system’s response to local failures is being studied using SAP2000 with wire elements, as well as with ABAQUS, and it is near completion according to the website for the study.

Former U.S. Congressional staffer Susan Lindauer, a CIA asset, has previously said that she was told by her CIA handler Richard Fuisz not to return to New York City in September of 2001 and that it would be ‘far too dangerous’ to do so due to an ‘imminent’ detonation of a miniature thermonuclear device.

Interestingly enough, a peer-reviewed scientific publication identified the presence of nano-thermite in the WTC rubble. One of the critical aspects of that paper has been confirmed by Chemical Engineer Mark Basile.

A draft report of UAF’s current re-evaluation will be “released in October or November 2017 and will be open for public comment for a six-week period, allowing for input from the public and the engineering community with a final report to be published in early 2018,” www.wtc7evaluation.org, noted.

Alaskan Boy Harassed by Animal Rights Activists for Killing Whale to Feed Village

A 16-year old Alaskan boy has been traumatized after receiving death threats and condemnation from ignorant activists for killing a whale to help feed his community.

When 16-year-old Chris Apassingok harpooned a 57-foot bowhead whale back in April to help feed his village, he was roundly praised and hailed as a “provider” and, now, a man, for succeeding in this rite of passage. It was a proud and glorious moment for the young Alaskan native.

Then, unfortunately, the animal rights crowd got wind of Apassingok’s achievement and made his life a living hell.

These ignorant activists bombarded Chris on social media with hate mail, condemnations, abuse and even death threats to the point that it deeply affected the young man.

This could be the story of a young man who proudly and honorably provided for his family and community, or a story of noble subsistence traditions being carried on in a modern world where more and more people are disconnected from nature and their food sources.

Secret Behind Murkowski’s Obamacare Flip-Flop

Sen. John McCain is getting most of the blame from the right and praise from the left for his vote to scuttle Senate legislation to repeal parts of Obamacare, but another GOP member is coming under fire for reneging on her vow to repeal the law and offering a weak explanation for her reversal.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, campaigned twice on ditching Obamacare and even voted for the straight repeal in 2015, when the bill was vetoed by President Obama . . .

After seven years of railing against Obamacare, why did Murkowski end up as a deciding vote to save it?

“Number one, she’s a big-government leftist. Anything that grows government, grows federal control, she’s for,” said Joe Miller, who ran against Murkowski in 2010 and 2016.

“Most Alaskans that have political contact remember what she did in 2010. She actually called me out and said I was a liar about her position on Obamacare because we had a YouTube clip of her waffling statements on Obamacare. We said, ‘Look, this gal isn’t really for full repeal,’” Miller explained.

Alaska Town’s Entire Police Force Quits

The entire police force of Sand Point, Alaska quit in July in a matter of just three weeks, leaving the town without any authoritative presence, and the transition has been smooth without any type of state enforcement agent.

Sand Point, an Alaskan island town with a population of about 1,000, had a police force of three officers and a police chief mid-July.

That’s when the officers, two of whom were a married couple, began to quit one after the other and then finally the police chief himself resigned.

City Administrator Andrew Varner said that the first officer wanted to be closer to a spouse who is in the military. A week later, two more officers, a married couple, left because of a “family decision.”

That left Sand Point police chief, Roger Bacon, who then decided to take a long-planned month-long vacation to Scotland. This decision cost him his job as a “mutual understanding” was reached between Bacon and the city council that if he left he wouldn’t be returning to his post.

“There was sort of a mutual understanding that if he left to go for a month-long journey — leaving the community with no law enforcement — that if he came back, he would not be an employee of the city,” Varner said. “Within a day or two, he had turned in his resignation.”

On July 20, the city of Sand Point released a press release calling for calm, stating that while the police department was “in transition,” citizens should “rest assured that the community will not be in a lawless state.”

Since the departure of the police force, the town has been calm. No more arrests and charges for fishing without a license, speeding down a public road or any of the other outrageous things that police across the nation try to enforce in the name of the state against the private individual citizen.

There was no Purge–like behavior, people weren’t killing each other without the police as is depicted in movies as propaganda for justifying the need for authoritative structure.

“Sand Point did not devolve into mass lawlessness,” Varner said.

“It’s not like the movie ‘The Purge,’ “in which all criminal activity becomes legal for a 12-hour period,” Alaskan State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters.

“Everyone was busy fishing, which was great,” Austin Roof, the general manager of the local public radio station KSDP 830 AM said.

Unfortunately, the paradise of not being harassed by state storm troopers won’t last long for the citizens of Sand Point.

The town has since chosen a new interim police chief, Hal Henning, the former police chief of Seldovia, Varner said.

Additionally, Sand Point will be further patrolled by Alaska State Troopers until they rebuild their armada. (For more from the author of “Alaska Town’s Entire Police Force Quits” please click HERE)

Murkowski Refuses to Explain Why She Campaigned on Obamacare Repeal but Voted Against It

Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski refused to explain why she voted against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act when she previously supported similar proposals in her campaigns.

Following the failed “skinny repeal late Thursday night, Murkowski, one of the three Republican senators who voted against it, told The Daily Caller she was not ready to respond to why she campaigned on repealing Obamacare in her last election but reversed her position on the matter recently.

“I am really very tired and so you’re asking for a really thoughtful response and I actually appreciate your question but rather than respond to each and individual request with all of these cameras around me, I’m gonna take a pass,” she said . . .

Murkowski, who was first appointed to the Senate by her father Frank Murkowski, who previously occupied the seat and ran for governor, to finish out his term in 2002 later ran for to complete a full term and won in 2004.

However, when she ran for a second term, she lost the Republican nomination to tea party favorite Joe Miller in 2010. Murkowski managed to defeat Miller as running as a write-in candidate. Although she has won three terms in office, Murkowski has never won a majority of voters in her state.
