According to the Constitution, there shouldn’t be any federal ownership of land in Alaska, so also no federal rulership of it. It’s up to Alaska to decide.
The congresswoman from Washington state thinks otherwise, as the Constitution isn’t followed much these days. 84-year-old, 23 term congressman Don Young gets upset, breaks protocol and even uses an expletive, which he knows full well is wrong. And then says he didn’t say ‘damn’ when he clearly did.
The house suspends discussion for five minutes, after which Don Young apologizes, which definitely does appear genuine, and is accepted. But will the media play the footage of the apology? No way. We an watch it here though.
Here is the entire interaction, how it really went down:

OBAMACARE REFORM AND REPEAL DEAD IN THE WATER
Sadly, even though nominal Republicans control both the House and the Senate, they can’t muster a majority to replace Obamacare nor repeal it. The latter attempt was on center stage this week in the Senate. As NBC gloated,
The Senate yesterday once again voted down a measure to repeal Obamacare. NBC’s Leigh Ann Caldwell: “Senate Republicans delivered another blow in their effort to dismantle the Affordable Care Act when they failed to pass a repeal of the Obama-era law on Wednesday afternoon. The vote, which is one of many expected during the ongoing health care debate, only garnered the support of 45 Republicans, short of the 50-votes necessary. Sens. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., Susan Collins, R-Maine, Dean Heller, R-Nev., and John McCain, R-Ariz., and Rob Portman, R-Ohio, Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and surprisingly Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., the chair of the Senate Health Committee, joined all Democrats in voting against it. The defeat eliminates the chances of Congress sending a nearly-full repeal of the law to President Donald Trump to sign.”
NBC does bring up the massive media campaign the Left has created to overwhelm Republicans with fear of cutting Obamacare subsidized benefits:
Health care opponents have spent $15 million on ads opposing the Senate GOP legislation, while supporters haven’t spent a dime: As for the ad spending in the health-care fight, here’s what one of us has written: “The Republican senators whose votes are crucial to the fate of health care in America have faced a $15 million barrage of TV advertising from outside groups opposing the GOP legislation — and no air cover from any group backing the bills.
According to ad-buying tracker Advertising Analytics, groups opposing the GOP health care push have spent $14.8 million since May on TV ads targeting 13 key senators, with even more ad buys rolling in daily as the debate in the Senate reaches fever pitch. No groups have run ads in those states in support of the ever-evolving Republican legislation to repeal and replace parts or all of Obamacare.”
In response and out of obvious frustration, Trump loyalists issued threats against those RINO Republicans who even back debate on the repeal issue. This backfired immediately as the targeted liberals ran to their buddies in the media to complain about the threats:
The Alaska Dispatch News says that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke called Alaska’s two senators to warn them that Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s “no” votes on health care had put the state’s future with the administration in jeopardy.
As for that news from Alaska — that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke reportedly threatened that Sen. Murkowski’s “no” votes could have consequences for the state — it likely will launch, at a minimum, an inspector general investigation. It’s not insignificant that the state’s other senator, Dan Sullivan, talked to Alaska media about the threat. Sullivan has been a reliable “yes” vote for Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Whoever thought up the idea of threatening Alaska over its single liberal Senator needs a lesson in political reality. These kinds of threats only work on conservatives—not dedicated Left/liberals who have the press on their side.
Thursday night, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made a last ditch effort to repeal by submitting a “skinny repeal” bill two hours before a midnight vote. The bill would do the following:
Repeal the individual mandate
Repeal the employer mandate
Increase caps on tax-free contributions to health savings accounts
Repeal the medical device tax
Defund Planned Parenthood
Liberal Republicans who have stood in the way of every repeal attempt would only support this bill if House Speaker Paul Ryan agreed to hold an immediate conference committee to work out the differences between the House bill and the “skinny repeal” bill which they don’t want to become law “as is.” The conferees from both House and Senate can change the bill at will and then it is presented to both houses for an “yes or no” vote—no amendments allowed. The Left/Liberal Republicans were hoping to control the conference process in their favor.
But because they could not guarantee the outcome, Sen. John McCain cast the deciding “no” vote at nearly 2am in the morning, along with Leftist Republicans Susan Collins and Lisa Murkosky, defeating the bill 51 to 49. McCain’s legacy will go down, like John Roberts, as the Republican that gave us Obamacare. VP Pence was on hand to break the tie if necessary. Sen. McConnell finally conceded that the Republicans failed and now it was the Democrats turn to present some new proposal. Why should they? They already have Obamacare.
No Hope In Trump; No Hope In DC
Published: Thursday, April 27, 2017
At this point, people who are still holding out hope that Donald Trump is going to drain the swamp and save America are delusional. In less than 100 days, Trump has taken America to the precipice of World War III. He has filled his administration with Goldman Sachs banksters, CFR globalists, New World Order Zionists, and warmongers. Trump refuses to prosecute Hillary Clinton for egregious crimes against our country, but he is vowing to prosecute Julian Assange, a man whose “crime” is publishing the truth he receives from whistleblowers about the criminal conduct of the U.S. government. Plus, Assange isn’t even an American. He is an Australian. What jurisdictional authority does President Trump have to arrest and prosecute a citizen of another country who has committed no crime in the United States? None! And if all of that is not bad enough, Donald Trump killed more innocent men, women, and children last month than Syria, Iran, North Korea, Russia, and China combined.
See this report:
And this one:
No, Donald Trump is not going to drain the swamp; he has completely immersed himself and his administration in the swamp–just like every President of recent memory before him. And every 100 days of his administration from this day forward will only reconfirm this obvious reality.
At some point, the people who thought that Donald Trump was an outsider and “anti-establishment”–and the ones who continue to sacrifice their principles defending him in the forlorn hope that they are going to ride his coattails to glory–will be forced to awaken to the stark reality that either Donald Trump was totally disingenuous from the beginning or he has already capitulated to the swamp creatures ensconced in Washington, D.C. Either way, there is absolutely no hope in Donald Trump. And neither is there any hope in Washington, D.C.
Washington, D.C., is totally and thoroughly corrupt. It is run by bloodthirsty, conscienceless subhumans who will stop at nothing until they bring Armageddon upon the entire world. DC is nothing more than a coven of perverted, putrid, parasitic, pathetic, pompous, pretentious, prideful, pathological purveyors of global pestilence.
How long will freedom-loving Americans continue to believe the empty promises of phony politicians? How long will they continue living in the fantasy that somehow Washington, D.C., is going to see the error of its ways, repent, and return the nation to constitutional government? How long will they continue to look the other way while the swamp creatures in Washington, D.C., corrupt the minds and hearts of their children in these institutions of propaganda called public schools? How long will they continue to allow the swamp creatures in Washington, D.C., and their bottom-feeding serpent buddies at the Federal Reserve and on Wall Street demolish sound money principles and destroy a free market economic system? How long, folks? How long?
Donald Trump is finishing what G.W. Bush began. Bush forever destroyed the influence of genuine Christian patriotism in this country with his phony brand of warmongering Christianity. Now, Trump is forever destroying the influence of the Tea Party/Patriot movements in this country with his phony brand of warmongering/Police-State-building “nationalism.”
The truth is, Trump started drowning in the swamp even before he was inaugurated. Most of the people in his administration could have been picked by ANY of the other neocon Republican presidential candidates. Right now, Washington, D.C.’s neocon warmongers are gushing all over Donald Trump.
On the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) recently said that on foreign policy “I am like the happiest dude in America right now. We’ve got a president and a national security team that I have been dreaming of. . . . I am all in. Keep it up, Donald.”
Ladies and gentlemen, please understand that the single issue that defines a neocon (i.e., Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Paul Ryan, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, G.W. Bush) and a neolib (i.e., Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Harry Reid) is foreign policy. To the swamp creatures in Washington, D.C., everything is defined by foreign policy. Everything! These are beasts of prey. They feed on the blood and carcasses of the dead. They are enriched by war; they crave war; they promote war; they create war.
Donald Trump ran on the coattails of Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul. Most of what Trump trumpeted (no pun intended) was proclaimed and popularized by Buchanan and Paul. They failed to win the White House. Trump succeeded. Do you really think Pat or Ron would have filled their administrations with globalists, billionaires, international bankers, and CFR members? Do you really think Pat or Ron would have turned control of the White House over to two ultra-liberal globalist Zionists such as Jared and Ivanka Kushner? Do you really think Pat or Ron would have launched 59 Tomahawk missiles on a sovereign nation without our country being attacked or consent from Congress? Do you really think Pat or Ron would take America to the precipice of World War III before finishing their first 100 days in office? Hell no!
Donald Trump ran on Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul’s platform of constitutional populism, but he didn’t really believe it. Like G.W. Bush betrayed the Christians who elected him, Donald Trump has betrayed the constitutionalists who elected him. And this time the fallout will be fatal–especially if, as it appears, Trump takes America into another war–or even nuclear war.
No one will ever believe the campaign rhetoric of constitutionalism and populism again. Trump has poisoned the pot. The Democrat Party is plunging further and further into radicalism, extremism, and socialism. But four years from now, people will embrace the radical leftist agenda of the Democrats over the phony constitutionalist agenda of Donald Trump. Then, watch out! Katy bar the door!
Face it: G.W. Bush gave us Barack Obama, and Donald Trump may give us…the antichrist.
From this point onward, freedomists need to “get religion.” I mean they need a revelation. They need to come to the disconcerting decision that there is NO HOPE in Washington, D.C.
There is only one course of action for freedomists: secession. The only other alternative is slavery.
And people need to understand that the spirit of secession is sweeping the globe. Currently, there are 42 separatist movements underway in Africa; 68 in Asia; 107 in Europe; 16 in North America; 18 in Oceania; and 9 in South America. That’s a total of 260 active separatist movements going on RIGHT NOW.
During the past few years, secession movements among states of the United States include Alaska (2006, 2017); California (2010, 2015 – 2017); Florida (2015); Georgia (2009); Hawaii (2011, 2017); Montana (2008); New Hampshire (2012, 2017); Oregon (2016); South Carolina (2010); Texas (late 1990s, 2009, 2017) and Vermont (2003, 2005 – 2007, 2017). This does not include the secession movement currently underway among the Lakota Indians in Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.
The answer has NEVER rested in Washington, D.C. It has always been a fatal mistake for people to expect an answer from Washington, D.C. The answer has always rested with “We the People.” Always! History proves that the bigger central governments become, the more tyrannical they become.
And the fact is, the United States is much too large and too populous to maintain liberty. Increasing population has taken government further and further away from the People. Politically speaking, the only thing that has thwarted Washington, D.C.’s total takeover of the states is the Electoral College system. But a rancid public education system, a cowardly pulpit, a corrupt news media, and runaway political correctness have brought liberty to the brink of destruction. Only the states can recapture the spirit of liberty–ONLY THE STATES! But which states is the sixty-four million dollar question. (My money’s on the Rocky Mountain states–which is one of many reasons why I was led to move here.)

UAA was already bad when I attended there in the mid to late ’80s — naked paintings by art students lined the art’s building hallway • nudity in plays • psych, science and history department lies! Much evil originates from this publicly funded University. Many students have lost their faith, while most pastors say nothing.
Painting of Decapitated Trump Allowed to Hang in Art Gallery at U of Alaska
Oh, right, “art.”
A painting depicting the severed head of President Trump hangs in a University of Alaska-Anchorage art gallery with not much fuss at all.
Created by an assistant professor, Thomas Chung, the painting features a naked actor Chris Evans — yeah, the Captain America — holding the head of the president as blood drips down onto a young Hillary Clinton dressed in white, clinging to the leg of Evans.
Chung said his reason for the brutal painting was a result of him spending “days just weeping” after election night and that his feelings on Trump’s victory just “bled into that.” Apparently literally.
Though he was hesitant to submit the work for a faculty art show knowing the controversy it would stir, Chung figured at the very least, it would start a conversation:
“I was really torn about putting this piece up a faculty show, because I would never talk about my own political beliefs to my students. I would never push that upon them and make them feel uncomfortable, and so I wondered to myself if putting up this painting was in a way doing that. But I realized that I feel very strongly about this, and I think even students that might be pro-Trump supporters could benefit from having a conversation with me about why I feel this way — why I painted this.”
Does anybody believe a Trump-hating professor would hide those political feelings from students? Didn’t think so.
A former UAA professor, Paul R. Berger, spoke out from his conservative perspective: “First thing that comes to mind is freedom of expression, fair enough (although, I might wager the severed head of our former president might illicit a different response from the administration of UAA and their student body). The second is public funding of our university system.”
Berger also made the astute observation that a severed Obama head would illicit a completely different reaction:
“Had the roles been reversed, and it was Obama’s head hanging there, I think the outrage would be fantastic. As a free speech advocate, everyone has a right to express their opinion the way they want to express them. But as a parent and a citizen, there’s a discussion. In a university setting, what’s appropriate?”
Chung’s “art” had the full backing of the university’s fine arts department:
“I guess the people are upset about the work that’s being shown. If they were taking a class at the university and made art that was considered controversial, no matter what their political or religious bent is, we would do our best to protect them and protect their rights to make that kind of work in the institution, whether it would be a student or faculty.”
That would not be the statement if that was Obama’s head bleeding out.
