Today’s Anchorage Event Looks at New Strategy to End Abortion in Alaska

The prolife movement has met with success on all fronts: crisis pregnancy centers, public opinion, public witness, civil disobedience, sidewalk counseling, marches, picketing, Forty Days for Life. But politically it is still stuck in neutral.

True, a supreme court reversal is at long last quite possible, but like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, prolifers have had the “Ruby Slippers” to get home all along. A basic misunderstanding of the Constitution by the prolife movement and the proper roles of the courts will be discussed at Gallo’s in Anchorage on Thursday, January 9, sponsored by the St. Catherine of Siena chapter of Catholics United for the Faith. Cocktails at 6:30, dinner at 7:00. Guest Speaker is KSRM Radio 92 in Kenai talk-show host Bob Bird.

A retired public school teacher of 41 years lauded by the state legislature, former President of Alaska Right to Life, twice a candidate for the US Senate, Bird was endorsed by Ron Paul in 2008. He will explain the proper way to end the outrage of Roe v. Wade.

A Power Point presentation will be followed by a question and answer session.

Is Biden Considering “Cocaine Murkowksi” as a Potential Vice Presidential Running Mate for 2020?

According to the Hill today, some are speculating that Joe Biden might be considering Lisa Murkowski as his vice presidential running mate for 2020:

Choosing a Republican for vice president could ignite a fire on the floor at the Democratic National Convention. As Biden himself claimed last week, “You know, there are some really decent Republicans that are out there still. But here is the problem right now, of the well known ones. They have got to step up. You know what I mean?”

Only a handful of Republicans come to mind to run with Biden, and they are Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, Vermont Governor Phil Scott, and former Ohio Governor John Kasich, the man who refused to be on the ticket with Trump, much to the consternation with Trump. All five of these politicians have demonstrated the capacity to buck Trump and the Republican Party.

Murkowski voted against ObamaCare repeal and Brett Kavanaugh. She has expressed her disapproval of the willingness of McConnell to act as a lackey for the White House in the impeachment inquiry. Then there is her own political history. In 2010, Murkowski won reelection as a write in after losing the Republican primary to Joe Miller . . .

But Murkowski has all sorts of troubling history. In a national race, unprotected by her minions in Alaska, you’d be sure to hear about her alleged cocaine use, being a representative for a company caught stealing bar examination results (after she herself failed the bar exam four or five times, and then mysteriously passed the exam after using the company’s stolen exams), illegal campaign donations, backing blanket amnesty for illegals, supporting Planned Parenthood’s butchery of the unborn, lying repeatedly about her support for Obamacare, practically assaulting a reporter, having her henchman Tuckerman Babcock lie to the FEC (Joe Miller was cleared of the false charges) and file a false police report, vote fraud, and numerous other issues. She’s clearly unfit for her current office, not to mention the Vice Presidency.

But more power to Biden. His vice presidential running mate would fit in perfectly with his friends and family. And lose him a few million votes.

Please Contribute to the Only Alaska Based News Site Confronting Murkowski

Dear Friends and Supporters of Restoring Liberty,

We’re at a crossroads at Restoring Liberty. As you know, Google, Facebook, Twitter and other Establishment-controlled entities have targeted our website for destruction. Google has taken away our revenue account, stripped all ads from our website, removed us from its news listing, and has specifically targeted us in other ways, too. Facebook traffics our content to less than 1% of our 43,000 followers. Twitter discriminates against 99% of our tweets. YouTube hides our account. Snopes puts up false stories about us.

That’s no surprise given the fact that we are the only news website based out of Lisa Murkowski’s home state that is willing to hold her to account. See our recent stories here and here.

Despite this, we soldier on, continuing to post stories daily, reaching hundreds of thousands every month, millions each year.

If you want us to continue this outreach, please donate HERE.

We run a pretty tight ship. Nevertheless, the website costs several thousands of dollars per month to operate, not to mention the dozens of hours of volunteer time sacrificed every week. And after losing our main sponsor due to a tragic accident last year, we’ve been running in the red. But we continue to update you with the stories the Establishment hates.

If you want to continue receiving these updates from Restoring Liberty, please donate HERE.

The short of it is this: only with your contributions can we keep going for another year. And if everyone reading this email were to donate just $25, we’d be funded until next December!

Corrupt Murkowski ‘Disturbed’ by ‘Total Coordination’ Vow Between McConnell, Trump on Impeachment

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) said Tuesday that she was “disturbed” to hear that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) promised President Donald Trump that they would coordinate on the upcoming Senate impeachment trial.

McConnell recently said that there would be “total coordination” between the Senate and White House on the upcoming Senate impeachment trial; this disturbed the Alaska Republican.

She said, “And in fairness, when I heard that I was disturbed. To me, it means that we have to take that step back from being hand in glove with the defense, and so I heard what leader McConnell had said, I happened to think that that has further confused the process.”

Murkowski criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) impeachment as rushed. “Speaker Pelosi was very clear, very direct that her goal was to get this done before Christmas,” she said.

Murkowski was also one of three Senate Republicans not to back a letter sponsored by McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC), criticizing the Democrats’ closed-door, secretive impeachment inquiry.

93 MWh Tesla Megapack Coming to Alaska to Save Customers Cash

A new 93 MWh Tesla Megapack system installed in Alaska by the Homer Electric Association, Inc., will be used to directly offset electricity that would have otherwise required a peaker plant to fire up. The new battery pack will be installed at the Soldotna Power Plant (map), adjacent to the existing natural gas-fired GE LM 6000 turbine currently used to provide electricity to cover peak usage in the area.

The new Tesla batteries will demonstrate that not only can batteries directly replace gas-fired peaker plants, they can do so even in the frigid temperatures of Alaska, where temperatures typically stay below freezing for months at a time in the winter.

The battery pack is being installed by the Homer Electric Association specifically to “increase grid stability, electric power reliability and system efficiency for its members.” The Tesla Megapack installation will be able to fully discharge its 93 MWh of stored energy to the grid at a rate of 46.5 MW, so a full discharge takes 2 hours.

South African Man Given U.S. Citizenship After Allegedly Murdering Alaskan Women

A South African man was able to become a naturalized American citizen weeks after allegedly murdering two native Alaskan women, Breitbart News has learned.

Brian Smith, a 48-year-old native of South Africa, was indicted in October for the murders of 30-year-old Kathleen Henry and 52-year-old Veronica Abouchuk in Anchorage, Alaska, in separate incidents. Henry was allegedly strangled to death, while Abouchuk was allegedly shot and killed. . .

Smith, the law enforcement official confirmed, was able to become a naturalized American citizen weeks after he had already allegedly murdered Henry in a hotel room and potentially months to a year after allegedly murdering Abouchuk. At the time of his naturalization in September, Smith had not been identified by police as a murder suspect.

In the case of Henry’s murder, which has become known as the “Memory Card Killing,” Smith allegedly recorded the torture and murder of the native Alaskan woman on September 4. In early October, a woman found the SD memory card on a street with the title “homicide at midtown Marriott,” which allegedly depicts Smith strangling and murdering Henry.

Deserted Alaska Child, 5, Carries Toddler Half a Mile in Below-Freezing Temps in Socks, Light Clothes

A 5-year-old child in a remote Alaska village carried a toddler half a mile to a neighbor’s house in the bitter cold after he was left home alone, police said Friday.

The young child was frightened after the power went out at the home, so wearing only socks and light clothing, he picked up the baby and carried it through temperatures that dipped 31 degrees below zero in the village of Venetie, Alaska, according to state troopers.

Both children suffered cold-weather injuries, according to an Alaska Department of Safety release.

Julie Peter, 37, left the 5-year-old and 18-month-old home alone and has been arrested on suspicion of endangering a minor. Her relationship to the children is not yet known.

Accused Serial Rapist Released on $10k Bond in Alaska, Then Arraigned for 9th Rape

We’re accustomed to seeing violent criminals released on little or no bond in New York, Chicago, and California, but evidently, this jailbreak is occurring even in Alaska. The cases seem to get worse as time goes on, as political momentum among the judges and politicians tilts even further to the criminals. Such is the case of Kayshawn Dyett.

In May 2018, Dyett was arrested for first-degree rape after two women independently accused him of rape on the same day in April. In what has become a growing jailbreak epidemic in all 50 states, Dyett was released on just $5,000 bond in July of that year, even though police believed there were more victims. He was placed under house arrest with an ankle monitor, but these monitors have been proven unreliable in deterring violent criminals.

Shortly after his release, six more women came forward with similar rape accusations, and Dyett was indicted on a total of 12 rape charges against eight women. According to KTVA, “Some of Dyett’s accusers testified at a bail hearing, imploring the court to keep Dyett in custody, fearing for their safety and the safety of others.” Under normal circumstances, a man like this would be held without bail or on over $1 million cash bail, yet prosecutors only asked for $100,000. The defense attorney accused the women of being part of the #MeToo exploitation and implored the judge to keep the bail at $5,000. Anchorage Superior Court Judge Kevin Saxby set Dyett free on just $10,000 bail. He even allowed Dyett to stay out of jail for two additional weeks so he could come up with the paltry sum, ultimately enabling him to remain out on the streets for an entire additional year, despite the indictments for eight separate rapes.

As KTVA reports, according to court documents, Dyett violated the terms of his bail twice in recent months, including the second time last month when he met the ninth alleged victim.

A different judge, Michael Wolverton, responded in September by increasing his bail … by $1,000. Dyett easily paid the sum. 15 days later, on October 10, 2019, Dyett is accused of raping and strangling a ninth victim in a manner consistent with the other cases.

At last Thursday’s arraignment, Judge Patrick McKay set the new cash bail at $500,000, which is still historically low for one accused of such heinous crimes.

As I chronicled in my profile of New York’s abolish-bail policies, the problem with releasing dangerous criminals pretrial, often for years, is not just the fact that it provides them with more opportunities to victimize and commit more crimes. It makes it hard to convict them for the first crime(s), because a successful conviction hinges upon testimony from victims and witnesses. They are scared enough to come forward even with the criminal locked up. Imagine this man out on the streets with the rape victims knowing that they are targets with no protection. Sadly, this is done by design – it’s a feature, not a bug, of the “bail reform” agenda – for the purpose of reducing the prison population at all costs.

It’s a demonstratable lie that the move to reduce jail time pretrial and prison time post-conviction is only for “first-time, non-violent, low-level” criminals. This “reform” is applied to the worst criminals and repeat offenders imaginable, including accused serial rapists like Dyett. And no, ankle monitors are not the answer, especially as local police departments have an increasing caseload of so many violent prisoners to monitor – both pretrial bond offenders and post-conviction offenders who get placed on probation instead of serving more time. In Chicago, for example, there are only 100 cops to watch over the parole of 2,000 mainly violent felons.

Just last week, in Washington County, Oregon, a man charged with 18 brutal child sex offenses who was let out on bail cut off his ankle monitor and remains at large. Josiah Rosales, 29, was arrested on numerous rape charges against children in July, but was only required to post 10 percent of his $1.25 million bail in September, after which he was released with a GPS-tracking ankle monitor.

Yet leftist Democrats and Republicans in almost every state think not enough criminals are let out. Harris County, Texas, is in the process of getting rid of cash bail for most people arrested, including for violating protective orders and assault.

At a hearing this Monday in Harris County on the issue of abolishing bail for all misdemeanors, Houston Police Officers’ Union attorney Mary Nan Huffman used the example of a woman who found a man who was stalking her outside her home window holding a knife in one hand and his genitals in the other while starring at her. That sounds pretty scary, but under the plan to abolish bail, this man would be released after being booked. Huffman said, “Without a bond hearing, no one would know his criminal history, how he’s committed rapes and been in and out of prison.”

There is further concern from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton that such policies will lead to the release of criminal aliens before ICE is able to apprehend them. This is already happening in the blue states, in one of the many ways that jailbreak merges with sanctuary policies to create one massive public safety nightmare.

This movement to dismantle criminal justice with no regard for public safety and victims of crime is sickening, but it’s quietly gaining steam without the public even being aware of it. President Trump is the only one who has the megaphone to stop it in its tracks. He’s already given the “abolish prison” crowd a victory with the ridiculous First Step Act. Now it’s time for him to fulfill his promise to be tough on crime and actually begin fighting back against the jailbreak movement.

Mike Dunleavy on Leftist Special Interests Pushing Recall: ‘The Fight’s On’

The fight is on in the northernmost American state as its newly-elected GOP Gov. Mike Dunleavy faces an effort pushed by leftist special interests to recall him after he delivered on his promises to reduce the size and scope of government and reignite the state’s economy.

Dunleavy, an ally of President Donald Trump, faces an effort in his state to recall him because he has cut the state budget significantly and got the economy booming again—a very similar fight to the national impeachment battle that Trump faces.

Dunleavy, just like Trump, is fighting through it. He has launched a website to rally voters to his side amid the recall push and appeared on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel this weekend to make his case for why he believes the leftist special interests are targeting both him and Trump.

“The bottom line is this, just like the president—he wasn’t supposed to win. He was not within the establishment. He was not part of the swamp. What people fail to realize, President Trump and what we’re trying to do up here is to work on behalf of the average American and average Alaskan—not the special interests,” Dunleavy said. “It’s those special interests who are trying to redo the election here in Alaska and trying to impeach the president now nationally.”

“So, we made the fatal error I guess of doing things for our people—the average American, the average Alaskan—and not kowtowing to the establishment and the special interests,” he continued. “So, I guess this is what you get when you fight on behalf of the average American and average Alaskan. I wouldn’t change a thing, and I think if you asked President Trump he wouldn’t change a thing. So, the fight’s on. They want to try and do a recall or redo the election, but we’re up to the task because we think we’re doing the right thing for Alaska just like the president does for the nation.” (Read more from “Mike Dunleavy on Leftist Special Interests Pushing Recall: ‘the Fight’s on’” HERE)
