    The Trump administration has rejected a permit for the controversial Pebble Mine in Alaska, likely dealing the project’s final blow even before President-elect Joe Biden takes office.
  • Can fraudulent ballots be identified? Actually, Alaska Has Done It!

    American Thinker ^ | 11/18/2020 | John Blu
    Although the poorly documented, sudden appearance, of thousands of "Biden" ballots may appear to be fraud, it's not proof. And in any event, they're mixed in with the full ballot pool, and can't be disentangled. Or can they? Let's consider the dumping scenario. Due to the limited time frame required to falsify ballots, it's likely that only a limited number of people participated. So what does this mean? It means that : (1) the same sets of fingerprints should appear on multiple ballots (likely in the same place(s) on the ballot), and (2) these identifiers won't match known voting ballot...

    Palin responded to comments in Obama's A Promised Land during a Friday evening interview with Newsmax. Both she and host Greg Kelly ridiculed Obama as "aloof and snobby as he's ever been" after he tied her to what he described as xenophobic and paranoid thinking that now dominates the Republican Party... ...Palin said Obama's depiction of her in his new book overlooks that she and the Tea Party movement at the time promoted diversity within the GOP, particularly the "Mama Grizzlies" embrace of conservative women. "It's the antithesis of what the left is acting out today. They're choosing people based...

    Dan Sullivan won re-election in Alaska on Wednesday — putting the Republicans within one seat of maintaining their majority in the U.S. Senate. The Republican incumbent defeated independent challenger Al Gross who was running with the backing of Democrats, meaning control of the Senate will come down to two runoff elections in Georgia between GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler and the Rev. Raphael Warnock and Republican Sen. David Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff. Democrats have 48 seats in the Senate

    As of 5 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, six states that will decide the next president remained uncalled, as did a handful of Senate races that will determine who controls the chamber. Here’s where things stand on Day 3, when you can expect final results, and how to follow along as this extraordinary election unfolds. What are we waiting for? In the presidential race, as of 5 p.m. Eastern, we did not yet know who won Alaska (3 electoral votes), Arizona (11), Georgia (16), Nevada (6), North Carolina (15) or Pennsylvania (20).

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Speaker Nancy Pelosi once predicted she’d have the 2020 House Democratic majority secured by November — of 2019. Now, days before the Nov. 3 election, she seems to have done it, and she’s expanding her reach. With control of the House hardly contested, Pelosi is working to fortify Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and win extra House seats in case Congress is called on to resolve any Electoral College dispute with President Donald Trump. Pelosi said she feels so confident Democrats will keep the House this election, she’s already preparing to win the next one in 2022....

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)-When researching incidents of firearms used to defend against bears, the surprising deadly potential of the common .22 rimfire cartridge becomes apparent.

From my article at ammoland.com: On 10 May, 1953, Bella Twin was hunting small game with her...

    PITTSFIELD (WGME) -- Senator Susan Collins says she will vote against Judge Amy Coney-Barrett being elected to the Supreme Court. Sen. Collins releases statement on Supreme Court Vacancy "It's not a comment on her,” Collins said. “It is a comment on the process of rushing through a nomination in such a short time before a presidential election." Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski also said she will be a no vote for the same reason. To block the confirmation, two more senators would have to vote against Coney-Barrett, but Republicans have said they have the votes.

    Supreme Court fight pushes Senate toward brink BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 09/26/20 01:02 PM EDT The burgeoning fight to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Supreme Court seat is pouring fuel onto already simmering tensions in the Senate and threatening to fundamentally reshape the institution. Senators in both parties acknowledge the level of dysfunction in a chamber where the bulk of their time is spent processing nominations amid failures to break stalemates on pressing national issues such as coronavirus relief and police reform. “I’m praying to God that the better angels start flying with my colleagues. That’s all I can tell...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin hinted at a possible run for Lisa Murkowski's Senate seat if the senator doesn’t support President Trump’s replacement for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. "We sure hope that you have it within you to do the right thing this time,” Palin said to Murkowski in a series of Instagram videos posted this week. “So, you should walk back. We'll forgive you. If you can't do that, remember my house? I can see a lot of things from my house. ... Lisa, I can see 2022 from my house." "Lisa Murkowski, this is...

    Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) made a stunning reversal of her position on filling the vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg. According to a report from Alaska Public Media, Murkowski now can’t rule out voting to confirm a nominee before the election. “I know everybody wants to ask the question, ‘will you confirm the nominee?’” she said. “We don’t have a nominee yet. You and I don’t know who that is. And so I can’t confirm whether or not I can confirm a nominee when I don’t know who the nominee is.”

    Total victory is upon us, folks. And some Republicans have managed to get on a path towards redemption with conservatives. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said he wouldn’t block the nominee. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) is a ‘no,’ but as we’ve said before—Maine is an oddball state. She gets a pass. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), a runner up in the biggest pain in the a** contest among the GOP, did initially say that she’s opposed to filling the Supreme Court vacancy left by Ruth Bade Ginsburg, but is now changing her tune. The last justice passed away last Friday making the...

    Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska said on Sunday that she will not support nominating a successor to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court before the 2020 presidential election. The announcement makes her the second Senate Republican to publicly take that position. "For weeks, I have stated that I would not support taking up a potential Supreme Court vacancy this close to the election," Murkowski said in a statement. "Sadly, what was then a hypothetical is now our reality, but my position has not changed. I did not support taking up a nomination eight months before the 2016...
