Four Children Found Alive After Going Missing During Alaskan Blizzard

Four children have been found alive after they went missing during a blizzard in Alaska when they were last seen going for a ride on a snowmachine.

KTUU reported that the children went for a ride on a snowmachine at 1 p.m. on Sunday and never returned to their village of Nunam Iqua.

Alaskan State Troopers found out about the incident around 6:45 p.m. and started an official search, but blizzard conditions made it difficult for rescue crews to see.

Once state troopers and other rescue crews resumed their search Monday morning, they confirmed that all four children were found alive and were being brought to safety. . .

The three older boys — 14-year-old Christopher Johnson, eight-year-old Frank Johnson, and seven-year-old Ethan Camille — dug a hole in the snow to shelter the two-year-old boy Trey Camille, Alaska Public Media reported.

Schiff Makes PATHETIC Closing Argument: Trump Could Sell Alaska (VIDEO)

By The Blaze. Closing arguments in the Senate’s impeachment trial wrapped up Monday with some far-reaching arguments from two of the House’s impeachment managers.

On the one hand, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) claimed that, if non-criminal acts aren’t impeachable, President Donald Trump would be able to trade away a U.S. state to Russia for political assistance.

During his closing arguments, Schiff attacked the position that only criminal actions rise to the constitutional standard of “high crimes and misdemeanors” as grounds for impeachment. If non-criminal actions aren’t impeachable, the California Democrat argued, then “a whole range of utterly unacceptable conduct in a president would now beyond reach.”

For example, Schiff claimed, “Trump could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election, or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago permanently and let Jared Kushner run the country, delegating to him the decision whether to go to war.”

Impeachment Closing Arguments: Dems Claim ‘Duty Demands’ a Conviction, as Trump Team Decries ‘Rush to Judgment’

By Fox News. The impeachment trial of President Trump drew closer toward its almost-inevitable conclusion with closing arguments Monday, as Democratic House impeachment managers made a last-ditch push to convince the Senate that an acquittal would be a “death blow” to the ability to hold a president in check, while Trump’s defense team accused the Democrats of engaging in a rushed, “purely partisan” endeavor. . .

“I submit to you on behalf of the House of Representatives that your duty demands that you convict President Trump,” House manager Rep. Jason Crow, D-Colo., said during his remarks, the first among the Democrats who delivered arguments.

Crow addressed an argument put forth by Trump legal team member Alan Dershowitz, who claimed that Trump was working in the national interest, and not his personal interest, by asking Ukraine to investigate possible corruption related to former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Dershowitz asserted that even if Trump was acting to aid his own re-election if he believes his re-election to be in the nation’s best interest, it would be proper. . .

As for the president’s team on Monday, attorney Kenneth Starr argued the House’s impeachment power is not free of limitations. . .

Starr also accused the House Judiciary Committee of rushing to move forward with impeachment and contrasted Trump’s impeachment with that of President Bill Clinton and the effort to impeach President Richard Nixon, both of which enjoyed bipartisan support, unlike the Trump impeachment.

The U.S. Isn’t Taking Chances in Wuhan; Plane Carrying Passengers From Wuhan Stops in Anchorage

By USA Today. U.S. Consulate staffers and other Americans in Wuhan will be evacuated to California on Wednesday as the death toll rose to 106 from a new coronavirus racing through China.

In the U.S., Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said Tuesday that the number of cases remained at five, with no deaths. Researchers are still trying to determine the incubation period of the virus and how easily it can be spread by infected people who are not yet experiencing symptoms, he said.

“This is a potentially very serious threat, but at this point Americans should not worry for their own safety,” Azar said. “This is a very fast-moving, constantly changing situation.”

Azar said U.S. health officials have repeatedly offered to send a team from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to China to help. He said talks with Chinese health officials had been positive and he was hopeful that an arrangement could be made. (Read more from “The U.S. Isn’t Taking Chances in Wuhan” HERE)

Americans Evacuate China Coronavirus Epicenter on Charter Plane

By The Washington Times. An airplane evacuating as many as 240 Americans from a Chinese city at the center of a virus outbreak departed Wednesday before dawn, and is en route to the U.S., a U.S. State Department official has told The Associated Press.

The U.S. government chartered the plane to fly out diplomats from the U.S. Consulate in Wuhan, where the latest coronavirus outbreak started, and other U.S. citizens. The plane will make a refueling stop in Alaska before flying on to Ontario, California, the U.S. Embassy in China has said. . .

During the refueling stop in Anchorage, the travelers will be re-screened for the virus. Hospitals have been notified and are prepared to treat or quarantine people who may be infected. (Read more from “Americans Evacuate China Coronavirus Epicenter on Charter Plane” HERE)

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!

Please prayerfully consider partnering with us for another year. We are grateful for anything that you are able to contribute whether it is $10, $100, $1000, or even more. Thank you for your continued support.

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.
