Alaska: Lisa Murkowski Flip-Flops & Scott McAdams Goes Radical

               McAdams (Far Left) & Murkowski (Rino) fit in the same frame       
Patrick Read
Washington  DC

As the desperate politics of character assassination sinks to a new depth in the Alaska Senate race – one thing remains clear – Joe Miller is correct. He is running against two liberals, and both Scott McAdams and Lisa Murkowski have selfishly sold out Alaska in favor of their own liberal ideology and political victory.

Benevolent service to our nation’s military was something highly regarded in Alaska, but recently the egocentric candidate, Lisa Murkowski, is trying to demean Miller’s honorable sacrifice (bronze star, achievement medial) for her own political gain.

And the candidate endorsed by Alaska’s Center for Community (CFC) should hold charitable service (Honorable Military Service, West Point Alumn) in high esteem, but instead Scott McAdams is also trying to demoralize Miller’s volunteerism as a pro-bono attorney. It should be noted that neither Murkowski nor McAdams served their community by offering free (Yale Educated) legal service or have sacrificed for their country through (Meritorious)  military service. 

Instead, Murkowski failed the bar exam four times before her father's political connections landed her a job in Anchorage. And the only thing McAdams defended was the snack bar at the local Museum he worked at before serving big unions for six years. Of course in 2007, Murkowski voted “NO” on a measure that would prohibit Congress from berating the men & women who are serving the military with honor which may allow her to demean service to one's country (like she did at the debate).

As many already know, Alaska is an economic power house in terms of its oil and natural gas reserves. In years past, the people of Alaska have benefited from the Oil Industry when Governor Palin negotiated “resource rebate checks” totaling of $1,200.00 delivered to each Alaska citizen.

In turn for Alaska's production and supply of new petroleum:
  • gas prices went down,
  • heating-oil prices lowered,
  • overhead costs plummeted,
  • the cost of goods and services fell, 
    Shipping cost dropped,
  • and thus the nation’s employment rate & its economy surged all the more higher.
One doesn't need a Masters of Science (Miller's) to know that the efficiency of fossil fuel & its supply is the very life blood to the US economy and her people’s well being. It is equally obvious that Scott McAdams favors a new direction for both Alaska and America. It must be his glaring lack of experience that leads McAdams to support America's becoming the Redistributive Source of Revenue for the world  with "Cap and Trade."  Certainly, the far left blogs and media sources support his position.

In the 2008 elections, a majority of Americans got their news from online sources. Mindful of this fact, the one term Mayor of Sitka, Scott McAdams hired a company called “Progressive PST” (PPST) to handle his Internet campaign. It is a political organization founded “by progressive (bloggers) for progressive (political candidates).” PPST builds Internet websites for candidates and services their e-campaigns via social media, ensuring their “clients” get favorable media coverage via far Left blog, The Daily Kos – who is now engaged in conflicting interest and is owned by a self-avowed socialist.

 As a co-founder of Progressive PST, Neal Rauhauser has Cisco ratings & & is a member of Net Roots Nation – a group of e-activist and bloggers. He handles Progressive PST’s technical expertise including; software, applications and website development. He blogs at The Daily Kos, The Oil Drum, Mother Nature Network, The Millennium Ark, Wise Earth, The Cutting Edge News, Open Left, and OSINT4Progressives among others. And none are remotely mainstream or middle Americana.

In a recent interview Rauhauser promoted what is known by radical-environmentalist as “perma-culture” or “permanent agriculture.” In short, perma-culture endorses a serfdom style agricultural system much like the one that America evolved from during the English Colonialism. Without using chemicals to control pests & allow for a larger harvest, the serfs will mandatorily rotate their crops only farming what is allowed by law. They’ll supply their own food and undoubtedly supply the noble few with the fruits of their labor too. After all, God knows that those who don’t farm still need to eat.   

The Perma-Culture movement that Rauhauser endorses, who McAdams hired & promoted his energy plan,  is ANTI-PETROLEUM stating:

1.    The US has hit its peak-petroleum supply. 
2.    The US is at its peak-population and
3.    Petroleum products must be discarded because their emissions (CO2) are killing the planet and causing global warming.
a.    Cap and Trade is an avenue to discard petroleum

Recently Scott McAdams endorsed a policy called he calls, “Stranded Wind,” where wind energy is used to power and produce a renewable energy power plant. Apparently , McAdams thinks that fossil fuel is endangered as the primary source of energy.  But  WHERE did McAdams get the idea of  "out dated wind-energy" as a source to produce an equally inefficient renewable-energy to replace petroleum?

One would guess after having serviced the Teachers Union from Sitka Alaska for a mere three years, McAdams would know about plagiarism. 

In the above interview, McAdams’ e-campaigner, Neal Rauhauser (on Twitter as “Stranded Wind”) cites Fritz Heber – the father of “chemical weapons” who sold his technology to Nazi Germany. Heber discovered that energy can be produced from fertilizer compounds – chemicals. McAdams' PPST Employee, Rauhauser,  takes the 1909 discovery to promote HIS “Stranded Wind project.” It uses a renewable (such as Wind, or Hydro) to produce a highly toxic form of Ammonia to replace the so-called declining petroleum supply or “peak-oil.” But he fails to mention that Ammonia emits nitrous oxide, which has 296 times the global warming potential than does petroleum (CO2), and it should be noted that he seeks to set society back a full 100 years at developmental stages of the industrial revolution. 

How would McAdams answer that the Left does not want The People or the Agriculture Industry to use chemicals to protect their crops or ensure a greater yield but are all too happy in endorsing the widespread use of dangerous chemicals to replace oil & gas? The use of chemicals in McAdams' endorsement of "Rauhauser’s Stranded Wind idea" would greatly escalate any man made global warming. In fact, it is evidence that man made global warming is not an issue at all, but is only being used by the Left to redistribute American revenues on a Global scale. 
Rauhauser, who is linked (here) to some very shady Internet activity,  appeases those to his left by saying that “only some corn” will still be produced for “some liquid fuel uses.” Apparently the Left believes that corn should not be manufactured for bio-fuels for Food Security reasons, but will be used to replace petroleum based products (like paint, plastic, and fuel); while wheat will be used as the primary food source for the human species.  

Rauhauser then drops an agricultural bombshell, stating that the Central California Valley water crisis was a net positive, “it’s where a vast amount of America’s Industrial Agriculture is located, and will now be transitioned to neighborhoods using their land to produce their own food (as opposed to relying on the Agricultural Industry).  "There will even be urban chickens, just like during the Great Depression,” Neal Rauhauser

Rauhauser comments that the largest Industrial Ammonia plant in operation today is in Zimbabwe and he explains that it is only limited because of the condition of its government and its currency. What came first, the urban chicken or its egg? Clearly if Zimbabwe embraced the more efficient energy and lower cost fossil fuel, its economy and government would not be amongst the worse in the world. And what Rauhauser does not say is that when used for energy, Ammonia is 40% less efficient than is any fossil fuel.

If those he surrounds himself with are any indication of a person’s character, McAdams is all about social-engineering and not about individual freedoms at all.

Rauhauser states his motivation is, "out of a direct profit motive, but the real profit in our eyes will be access to Democrats we helped to get elected.” Like Scott McAdams, a Senate candidate for Alaska which has one of the largest fossil fuel reserves in the world and who is right in Rauhauser’s wheel-house.  
As Barack Obama said directly, (his) plan of Cap and Trade would necessarily make energy prices sky-rocket.” And at its core, the green energy movement is only a money-making scheme using tax payer revenue to enrich others handpicked by the government – instead of the product itself resulting in the riches of the individuals producing it. If the green (with envy) movement of renewable-energy were viable, it would not need the government to prop up its market and thus create new wealth by force.

In the above interview (first 45 minutes), Rauhauser appears on the Nicole Sandler Show in his capacity as Progressive PST.  He and co-founder Beth Becker promote their extreme pro-abortion position and recite their demand for federal funding of the moral dilemma run amok in America. They sing support for Lois Herr, who is contesting Joe Pitts in Pennsylvania.

Pitts and Bart Stupak wrote into the so-called moral Health Care Reform Bill that Federal Funds (resulting from you and I) are not be used for abortion. Both are religious and know the words of Christ, “that which you do to the least of my people you do to me.” And religious people affirm that if the most vulnerable and most innocent human beings on the planet cannot be protected by our laws, then no one can be protected by law either. They know that the Left’s lack of respect for human life, in allowing for its destruction prior to it even being born, lends way to the lack of respect for human life realized in criminal activity as it furthers society’s immorality.
And almost on cue, Republican in Name Only (RINO) turned self demanded write-in candidate, Lisa Murkowski, announced her support for federally funded (by you and I) abortions. Of course, she is now only telling the women of Alaska to play gender politics and vote with their ovaries (here) now that it’s feasible for her to do so.

Murkowski voted (records here)  against Late Term Abortion. She voted against subversive abortion services. She voted for the parental notification act. But now sees fit to reverse all of this and, in direct opposition to her Catholic Faith, she waves the flag of favor for abortion; but she only showed her true colors when really needed to win HER political victory.  This means that she must favor the $100 Million dollars in the Health Care Bill sent to Country Wide Chris Dodd’s state to build a hospital that will perform abortions.

In addition to the above self-serving opportunism, she also lied about being endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA) – which is important to Alaska – especially with those who feed their families by hunting.  Scott McAdams didn’t even think to seek their endorsement out. In fact, the NRA endorsed (here)  Alaska’s war-time military hero, Joe Miller.

When considering controversy, one need not look any further than Lisa Murkowski. She has never won a primary, which is needed to represent the people, and she was only appointed to the US Senate by her father, Senator Frank Murkowski

It was a feudal display of nepotism not witnessed on American soil in over 200 years. 

Her father was the Senator from Alaska and in 2001 he ran for Governor. He won with the help of Sarah Palin, and then HE selected his selfish daughter as heir-apparent. While governor, Frank was part of the good ol boys’ network that Palin would later square off against. He was also the man who purchased the private jet despite legislative disapproval. Palin would later defeat Frank in 2006 and place the jet on e-bay for public auction; but only after he took it on a trip to Korea and Japan during his lame duck session, courtesy of the Alaskan taxpayer—of course!

How is this for a conflict of interest? The Federal Judge who recently ordered Joe Miller’s private employment records released—which have already been on display for 6 months—was appointed by Frank Murkowski, father of Lisa Murkowski, who is now running against Joe Miller. Again, Frank was whooped badly by Palin for Governor after she took a stand against his good ol boys. Sarah Palin later negotiated a check payable to every Alaskan from the same good ol boy network. And then Palin endorsed Joe Miller.

Lisa Murkowski voted twice to expand the Federal Government’s rights over state land, but not her own. She voted to give Hollywood a tax credit for its production, but did not do the same for Sugar Cane Farmers – which is why we import most of our sugar. Despite a 70% loud and clear rejection of the American People, Murkowski voted for both TARP and Omnibus. She then voted for a second bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac—whose sub-prime loans are the ground zero of the economic collapse—with another $160 Billion.

As a matter of fact, Murkowski has sided and voted with Pelosi, Reid and Obama 6 of the last 7 spending measures.  It is this same lack of character, moral fortitude & political gamesmanship that led to her father’s defeat. It is Murkowski’s same streak misrepresenting herself—like when she lied publicly and conceded her race to Miller on national television—that allows her to morph herself. To transform into what she places as the priority – herself.

Consider Heir Murkowski had the nerve to evoked Uncle Ted Stevens, who had just been killed in a plane crash, in order to excuse her sheer selfishness -- in ignoring The People's vote -- to make herself a write-in candidate. Cheaply using Senator Stevens in this vain  only highlighted for the people that her power hunger knows no boundry.

 Murkowski then joined the minions of liberal bloggers and  attacked Sarah Palin, who Chaired "Ted Stevens Excellence in Public Service, Inc” from 2002 - 2005.  She attacked Palin, like her father did, because Palin simply supported what she knows to be best for both Alaska and America.

With two of three liberals running for Senate in Alaska, a few things are clear and maybe heading our way: cap and trade will likely pass despite the people’s overwhelming disapproval, health care will not be amended with what the people want but will remain intact and progress toward a takeover of one-sixth of the American economy and the economic crisis will continue without an end in spending and reformation of America; as opposed to the transformation of it. 

And for embracing the founding ideals of our country, Joe Miller is now called, "extreme." Sure, Joe's extreme. He's extremely qualified. He's extremely intelligent. He's extremely educated. He's extremely judicial as his extremely prudent legal career proves.  He's extremely honorable based on a extreme collection of Military Medals. He's extremely proud of America and Alaska. He's extremely well founded regarding the economy, as  his extreme Master's Degree of Economics makes clear. I guess anything not radically progressive must be extreme to the Left.

Abraham Lincoln turned to the Founders to reform and move America forward for all of us, stating, "a divided house cannot stand." Now even Lincoln would be considered extreme by the Left! After all Abe was conservative. Of course, Lincoln defeated the Left too. He didn't turncoat, and he certainly didn't  radically change the constitution, but he confirmed it. Alaska will do the same.
