Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy issued the following statement on Jan. 6 after the U.S. Capital building was overrun by some of the protesters who were gathered in Washington, D.C., for a massive rally against election fraud.

“I’m deeply saddened and appalled to see the violence at the U.S. Capitol today. Acts of violence have no place in our great country. Republicans are the party of law and order. These few extremists do not represent our values. Rose and I are praying for the safety of those in the area, in the Capitol, as well as for the many peaceful rally attendees, most especially for our brave women and men in uniform. We settle our disputes through dialogue not violence.”

    Is there proof they were Trump supporters?

    • Bill says:

      You keep using that word “proof”
      I do not think the word “proof”, means what you think it means…

  • Michael S Totten says:

    Ya Mike we know you sold out to. We’re not listening to you anymore either

  • Kaye says:

    Oh come on Gov. Dunleavy!! Do your homework before you speak!! These were not Conservatives. Maybe you should go over to Rob Schmitt from Newsmax, on Twitter and read the feeds~ I’m sure it’s everywhere. There is plenty of proof out there and not at all hard to find, who these people really were. Try this on You Tube put out a week ago~~

  • Linda Cranney says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if we find out that most of the rioting protestors are actually PAID “never Trumpers” in sheep’s clothing. It would be interesting to find out who they REALLY voted for!

    • Michael S Totten says:

      It was already out over several social media sights that they were in fact going to infiltrate under the guise of MAGA. ANTIFA made it public information a week ago. And everybody is acting surprised
      C’mon man!

  • Lois says:

    How do we know these were Trump supporters and not the left infiltrating and impersonating them? This whole entire election senario is so bazaar, unprecedented and very disturbing.

    • Left wing infilTRAITOR says:

      yea, they could be standing right next to you, and you wouldn’t even know.

  • Carrie Harris says:

    The politicians have diolage they do what they want. That’s why they are still in Juneau after we voted for them to move. That’s why we don’t have our PFD, that why anchorage doesn’t have an elected mayor and that’s why anchorage council members silence the public at public meetings. Politicians talk they talk about listing to the people and do what they want people get bent over.

    Dear Lame Governor “When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another [ THE FAILED CONGRESS] that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. [ LAWFUL ELECTIONS]— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, [ NOT LAME CONGRESS] deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government [ THE CURRENT ELECTED OFFICIALS ] becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, [ BY MEANS OF A LAWFUL ELECTION ] laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind [ US AMERICANS ] are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations [ DISINFRANSIZED OF LAWFULL VOTES ] , pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism [ A BEIJING BIDEN PRESIDENT ], it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such [ FUTURE SOCLIALIST ] Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. [ OUR 240 YEAR OLD REPUBLIC ]. What say you LAME GOVERNOR?

  • Tom Henry says:

    If your only defense for this tRump inspired and promoted riot is that the bad actors were imposters, you have been sadly lead astray by overdosing on thr tRump koolaid and random ideas planted by tRumps few remaining appologists at fox news.

  • Rhonda Stark says:

    And what about the past four years of Marxist Antifa violence? Did our good governor ever make a public statement against that violence? Perhaps I missed it? Conservatives have been predominantly peaceful through all of this mess, and have not been the instigators. Where is the outrage by our elected leaders over any of the last four years of Marxist infiltration? There hasn’t been much sound at all. And now that supposedly some conservatives got out of hand, all of a sudden bas behavior is a new thing? Good grief. Of course violence should never be condoned but how convenient to just flow with the politically correct narrative. We need leaders with serious courage.

    • Michael S Totten says:

      No we need CITIZENS with courage. None of you need anybody to lead you anywhere. You need to think and act for yourselves you all have a brain and you all have hands and feet. You are adults. You don’t need elected officials to do anything for you. Are they cooking your dinner at night? Are they getting up and going to work for you are they helping you get thru everyday life. NO! people can govern themselves. The indian tribes still do. You don’t need paid assholes who don’t even know your name telling you how to live your god given life

  • Ed Martin Jr says:

    Like the few crumbs of bread a peasant holds to survive …So goes our freedoms of what was once a beacon to all of God’s humanity. The force of Beijing Biden is just days away!
    The” rule of law ” means nothing to the RUBBERSTAMPED Fraudulent Election of 2020 with the approval of this TREASONIST Congress!
    Many of my generation weep seeing this unfold ! Faith in the Lord has been defeated without help of those he had trusted. Fear once again is upon us!

    • Sally Pollen says:

      Ed Martin, thank you for posting the Declaration of Independence above. It is as powerful today as it was then. I like the ending…. it is the right AND the duty of citizens to throw off a government that becomes destructive to the principles of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Governor Dunleavy, acts of violence are what birthed this great land of liberty. There used to be patriots willing to give their lives for freedom and now that some are waking up and willing to do just that, they are branded, Extremists. What if the newly landed, rag tag families on this shore would have caved to the British and there had been no Revolutionary War? A growing number of passionate citizens are unwilling to sit by and watch as our freedoms are shredded and our Constitution trashed.

  • Mike Burdick says:

    I heard that ANTIFA was going to infiltrate the Trump rally. So 2 + 2= Soros backed ANTIFA soldiers. There has been so many Trump rallies and not ONE sign of Violence. But ANTIFA destroyed many Leftist Democratic run cities. This is just another way for the Left to discredit Donald Trump.
    Now for the Republicans that have turned against Donald Trump their names must be on a flight manifest of a flight to Epstein’s Island and they are being blackmailed.
    All I can say is shame on you all.

  • NAV says:

    It will be nice when your gone RINO!!!

  • DoneWithIt says:

    Did Dummy Dunleavy condemn the 200 cities that were being burned and looted this past summer by BLM and Antifa?
    Didn’t think so.
    Save the FAKE outrage you big phony.

  • Mongo love candy says:

    Chinese Communist POS Traitor!

  • Aunt Sally says:

    I must have missed your comments regarding the staggering voter fraud both nationally and within Alaska as well as your statements urging Young, Murkowski, and Sullivan to support the gentleman who’s been so supportive of you and Alaska, Big Mike. Did you actually have anything to say?

    And I must have also missed your remarks in support of Senator Shower’s request for an investigation into the Division of Elections and your demand to expedite corrective action and aggressive prosecutions of the fraudsters behind the casting of 43,000 more ballots than there are eligible voters in Alaska. You DID weigh in on that as well, right? If not, WHY NOT?

  • Ed Martin Jr says:

    A message to our LAME GOVERNOR ,Now after the vote on the Hill, I find all three of our congressional delegation are morally corrupt! They can never in a thousand years defend their actions NOT to investigate & allow for a commission to examine the Election Fraud of 2020 in numerous swing states! Shame on all of you! Truth must prevail, and that your Oath’s mean nothing when it comes to Preserving our Republic ! God help us Americans !!!!! This also applies to your moral compass GOVERNOR! You False Prophet !

  • AKFireFlower says:

    Dunleavy YOU ARE A SCUMBAG as is Murkowski, Sullivan and Young.

  • Jim says:

    The lame duck Governor is as useless as teats on a boar hog
    He’s been like a windvane throughout the Plandemic, as previous posters correctly point out there’s been ZERO mention on the violence last year supported by the evil forces trying to bring America to its knees
    Concerning all of Alaska’s politicians ;

    How do they sleep at night ?
    Look their children in the eye ?
    It’s all politics and they’re all in it for themselves
