At Murkowski's office, a call from Radical Santa and LGBTQ Natives for 'river to sea' genocide
The Israel-Hamas war gets weirder by the day
Good morning from Somewhere in Alaska!
North Pole’s “Radical Santa” and the odd group calling itself Native Movement (“led by Indigenous, Black, Queer, womxn, and gender non-binary communities rising up to interrupt destruction and restore balance”) called for genocide of Jews during an occupation of Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s office, where one sign holder held the genocidal message, “From the river to the sea, Palestine should be free,” regarded around the world as essentially a Nazi-level slogan.
Santa Claus, who served on the North Pole City Council, was a candidate for the 2022 Alaska's at-large congressional district special election. He has had nothing to say about the rape and mutilation of Israeli women and children, which started this war. (Those losing a war are always the ones to call for a cease fire.)
“Lots of great testimony, lots of tears. I hope Murkowski listens and does more to end the violence than prayers,” a group organizer said.
Was it an insurrection, or does that just apply to J-6ers?
Murkowski’s official Twitter account made no mention of the meeting. But two days earlier, she posted a photo of one of the Israeli children held hostage by Hamas, a photo she has kept on her desk for over a month.
“Abigail Mor Edan, a 4-year-old Israeli-American, was among the 17 hostages released yesterday,” Murkowski wrote. “On October 7, the Hamas terrorists killed Abigail’s parents in front of her before taking her hostage. I’m grateful to hear she is released and safe. After meeting with some members of Abigail’s family, I've kept her picture on my desk for over a month. I’ve been among many praying she would be returned safely back to her family. While our prayers were answered this weekend for Abigail, I will continue to pray for those who are still being held hostage.”

The high-flying, Democrat-leaning firm that helps companies with their reputations has suffered great reputation damage from a dispute between their top two alpha males over $6 million. Because in the end, these companies are all mercenaries.
He lived a remarkable life of service in Old Harbor on Kodiak and along the Kuskokwim River as a village priest. A registered Republican and social conservative, as is normal for his faith, he authored many books and was revered by many Alaskans.

Dec. 1, 1894, The Yukon Order of Pioneers was organized at Fortymile on the Yukon River to create a police force and fraternal group whose primary concern was the welfare, security, and well-being of its members, who were to be males of integrity and good character who met a 10-year residency requirement. By the early 1900s, the policing activities were no longer required. The Order's primary purpose is now social, historical and cultural. There are two lodges, #1 in Dawson City and #2 in Whitehorse.
