A tense exchange broke out during the Alaska House floor session on April 12 when Rep. David Eastman (R-Wasilla) introduced a measure meant to convey that the House was opposed to mandatory vaccines in Alaska.

Eastman introduced a Sense of the House stating, “No person in Alaska should be required to obtain a COVID 19 vaccine for any reason.”

After a six minute at ease, House Speaker Louise Stutes (R-Kodiak) said she decided to refer the Sense of the House to three committees – Health and Human Services, Judiciary, and Regional Affairs, which effectively blocked the proposal from being voted on or debated.

Eastman rose again and moved to discharge the Sense of the House from the first committee (HHS) to allow discussion and a vote on the floor.

Rep. Ivy Spohnholz (D-Anchorage) objected, claiming that Eastman’s Sense of the House was an attempt to “legislate on the floor.” Tuck also objected saying, “the Sense of the House is not supposed to be used this way.”

Eastman then pointed out that a Sense of the House has “no legal binding benefit. It is simply an opinion of the members of this body. There can be no benefit of sending this to a committee at this time because it defeats the purpose of allowing the body to have this discussion and to have an opinion.”

Stutes then asked the House members whether the Sense of the House should be discharged from the HHS committee. The majority of House members voted to keep the Sense of the House in committee, thereby ending any debate, discussion or vote on the measure.

    Come to my door and try to force a needle on me and the first 30 cent gift I give you is free.

  • Paul Bauer says:

    • Dee Cee says:

      Cronk!?!? Really?!?!? Oh my my my…. time for a phone call! Do you know the legislation on which he voted so I can look it up?

  • Kfinh says:

    Tyrants will be tryrants. David Nelson the newly elected house member getting a taste of that power! Feels great to rule over your subjects right.

  • John J Otness says:

    Their bread is buttered by big Pharma . These demons in the house are nazis just waiting to bust down your door to make you obey the State. We see them clear, We dont fear your evil and your Oath will be your Nuremburg. Sense of the House my Goodness is there a better oxy moron… Cents of the House is more like it as they cater to bill gates of hell and his sickening agenda.. Useless purchased evil children occupy our Capitol,,, Give me Liberty or give me DEATH….. it is that late …

  • John J Otness says:

    Thank you David Eastman working in a burning sulphur environment cannot be easy.

  • Dalton Fox says:

    We can start here and then get ready for the next forced medical procedure.

  • Mboll says:

    The vaccine in an Emergency vaccine, has not been clinically triled, has not been FDA approved (other than for Emergency use) and therefore, under Federal Law, CANNOT be mandated. But laws are only for us peasants.

    • Proud Alaskan says:


    • Christopher M. says:

      Yes, mandating a drug that has not been FDA approved is illegal and violates people’s civil liberties. At least until a whacked out judge deems it legal at which point we best be prepared to literally, stand our ground no matter what it takes.

  • Theresa says:

    How long will the FDA maintain the experimental status? And what hell will ensue when it’s gone?

    • Dee Cee says:

      Minimum 2 years from January 2021. This is because this was when they commenced trials on pregnant women and children. They have to complete phase I and II clinical before release to public, where phase III trials are conducted.

      This gives the legislature enough time to lay the ground work: 1) remove religious exemption, 2) set up a DHSS review board for medical exemptions. Look to California’s SB 277 and subsequent lawsuits for the model. Playbook has been written.

  • Ross Perrine says:

    Governors: Ron DeSantis in Florida, Greg Abbott in Texas, Kim Reynolds in Iowa, and Brad Little in Idaho have all taken action, either by Executive Orders or Legislation to Prohibit Forced Vaccinations and Vaccine Passports in their States to protect the Privacy and Constitutional Rights of their residents! I’m praying that our Governor Dunleavey will also Stand Up and Take Action to Protect the Privacy and Constitutional Rights of All Alaskans by Prohibiting Forced Vaccinations and Vaccine Passports in the State of Alaska!

    • Neil A DeWitt says:

      I agree. Hippa law says my medical information does not have to be shared with you or anyone I don’t want to share with. As for the vaccine if in a few years the FDA approves it and I read and study the side effects and all I MIGHT consider getting it. Not before then!

    HEAR YE HEAR YE.. ID RATHER STAND ON PSALMS 91… all my friends have taken this experiment n all r not well… one has leaking fluid from side of t. Nose..
    I HAVE BEEN COMMANDED from HE WHO SITS UPON HIS HEAVENLY THRONE… to remain steadfast n prayers n supplications for all souls who have Recieved this fallen lucerferion agenda.. HAVE MERCY O YAH HAVE COMPASSION O YAH N SAVE BY THY RIGHT ARM FOR ALL THE FAMILIES ON EARTH… àmein n Àmein

  • John J Otness says:

    We must understand that these in the Legislature and the Governor have all sold us out to this evil The church we cannot even turn to as many have opened their doors to be Kill centers as they beckon their people to take this poison. Franklin Graham showed his true colors as he dove hard into his Jesus would take the poison injection and has been backtracking ever since,,,,, This is evil on a scale of the third reich as the weak in society are perishing as the Govt was allowed to ban the drugs that worked in order to raise the nursing home death toll to instill the fear. We are being governed by soulless ghoul murderers and you had better wake up… dead interior meat puppets of satan ……Trust GOD and be a watchman on the wall .

  • Jon and Ruth Ewig says:

    Our fourth amendment in the Bill of Rights protects citizens from being mandatorily vaccinated. “The Right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particulaly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized…” Where are the lawyers who should be defending our Rule of Law.

    Trust no Democrat legislator. The Truth is not in them. They have a different mission than caring for their constituents, the Alaska citizens. Their goal is to stall and negate any valuable legislation put forward by the Republicans. Hopkins and Wool from the Interior cheated their way into office with the help of the swamp in DC. There is absolute proof that the Dominion Voting Systems flipped the votes. Go to for Absolute proof and witnesses. Ballot Measure 2 that was submitted by Adam Wool was flipped also.

  • Herman Nelson says:

    I bet Cronk, Lebron, Merrick, Nelson (no relation) and Stutes would love to have non-jabbers to forced to wear yellow star of david’s on their clothes. You know, it’s for your safety. What’s next? Load us up in box cars and ship us to Clear..? If they had their way, yes. Nazis being Nazis.

  • Jon and Ruth Ewig says:

    This appears to have become a free speech issue. If so-called Republican is leading the shut down of discussion then she and other Democrats/Marxists are shutting discussion down but it was OK to argue about masks for a long time in the legislature. These legislators are practicing Marxism in which you do not discuss, Stalling will continue so that our legislators do not accomplish anything patriotic or good for the Citizens of Alaska. These are other agendas not Alaska’s.

  • Jon and Ruth Ewig says:

    The legislators should be getting rid of the Dominion voting system and pass Showers bill for election integrity. We need to revisit the winning of the Democrats who did not win but cheated into office to do wrong things. Our interior ones are Hopkins and Wool.

    • Neil A DeWitt says:

      I support this also. Well said. We also must get rid of mail in fraud voting. The Anchorage mayor’s race was fraud again now we get a do over on May 11th.

      Why is it so difficult for whoever mails out these ballots to only send one to all eligible voters? 2 or 3 is not exceptable.

  • Kathy says:

    Who’s decision is it to keep these Dominion machines in Alaska? I sincerely hope Showers gets everyone’s support for election integrity.

  • Efrog Industries says:

    Please force your tyranny on me and my family so I have a reason to kill every single one of you and let God sort you out I have my own forced inoculation for you it’s called flying hot lead

  • Judith Ritenburgh says:

    Life will be soooo much better for the rest of us when you wackos kill one another off with $1.00 bullets and end up where wacko go! The comments on this stream are exactly why there needs to be mental health checks and background checks! I can’t imagine threatening to kill people at Will would put you at the top of the list for a weapon in your home! Especially over a vaccine!mDuh!

    • Michael S Totten says:

      Why do you want one of those rounds to? We can make that happen. No problem. If you support giving up your freedom to go serve your slave masters then YOU are part of the problem and you will be properly dealt with to.
