In a short message published in the inaugural email of the Alaska Republican Party Report, Gov. Mike Dunleavy focused his Christmas reflections on faith and family, urging Alaskans to follow in the footsteps of Christ.

“This month, Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, who came to guide us into the way of peace and goodwill among men,” Dunleavy stated. “Let us remember to model His behavior in our lives, this season and always.”

Dunleavy also asked Alaskans to remember those in the armed forces and their families.

“This is also the time of year when we gather with our families and friends to enjoy the holidays,” he said. “While we celebrate, let us remember those in the military, at home, and overseas, who sacrifice by being away from their families in order to serve our great country. After all, our ability to exercise our faith freely is largely the result of those who have made such sacrifices throughout our history to preserve the freedoms we enjoy as Americans.”

Dunleavy concluded his message by quoting from President Reagan’s 1981 Christmas address: “On Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Christ with prayer, feasting, and great merriment. But, most of all, we experience it in our hearts. For, more than just a day, Christmas is a state of mind. It is found throughout the year whenever faith overcomes doubt, hope conquers despair, and love triumphs over hate. It is present when men of any creed bring love and understanding to the hearts of their fellow man.”

    As an American either your blood is boiling or it is clotting.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      I have to question Dunleavy’s message since he seems to lean left more than right. I still cannot get over what I saw in his inauguration video. It looked like he was struggling to say the words of his oath – like it was paining him to do so and his freemason gesture at the beginning of the ceremony.

      • Ryan says:

        More to the left than right? Do you live in a cave?

      • AK Pilot says:

        While I think Dunleavy lacks much of a spine, the claim that he “seems to lean left more than right” is a bit of an overstatement.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Ryan and AK Pilot, I don’t think that it is an overstatement. He allowed Zink to stay in office where she continued pushing the jabs and he was even traveling around the villages encouraging folks to get the jabs. He endorsed Zink for the other position that she holds now that deals with all of the states instead of just ours (I can’t remember what the position is right now). He could be doing more for the sovereignty of all of the People of this state, but we’ll see. In my mind, he is walking the fence.

  • John J Otness says:

    With the FDA and Phizer both admitting the MRNA jab is causing blood clots and he the GOV pushing it on so many he has no where else to turn but GOD,
    YASHUA does not come back as a meek gentle Lamb… Those that have harmed so many through their influence will have to face the music.

  • No,really says:

    OR, just consider that, maybe christians poached the popular ( as in for millennia) non christian holiday of solstice with the Christ myth. First and always, the sun.

    • Ceak says:

      Christ came first, but nice try.

    • Jen says:

      Some wiser put their faith in thd creator instead of the creation. That Sun is a star and oneday will darken. But the Son of God, christ, lives foreve if you can’t believe that then
      look into. Isreal’s history
      and present how faithful God been to a people.

    Mike Dunleavy, I’m addressing this statement to you directly! You sir as our governor have had the opportunity to lead our government and failing state for going into two terms! Your “leadership” has allowed the businesses and people of anchorage to suffer under the tyranny of their assembly with no comment from you! You responded “not my jurisdiction “!
    You allowed corruption in the division of elections/stolen identities/ judicial activism, with the outcry of the people demanding a forensic audit, you declare “not my job”!
    You oversaw the c19 scam while hiding behind the Alaskan death culture as the people struggled to get requested meds but we’re refused! “Get the shot” while the clot evidence is now piling up! Again you give no response other than get the damn shot!!
    David Eastman is blatantly attacked by communist and drained of finances, and as stated by David “you mr dunleavy have taken a “ I’m not getting involved position”!!
    The reality is that no one matters to you including the 18 thousand people of Wasilla who voted for David Eastman!
    Merry Christmas and remember the reason for the season!? Your wishes for the citizens of this great state seem entirely empty in light of the fact that you as a governor don’t have a clue what is expected from you as our governor!!!
    Merry Christmas

    Instead of picking everyone apart, let us all unite to be better persons throughout the year. I also watched the inauguration but didn’t read into it anything like some here. Instead I saw the happiness of Rose Dunleavy at her husband being inaugurated for a second 4 year term and the calm of a man who would hopefully have a better chance of working with the legislature to accomplish some of his goals, building on his first term experience. Reading actions into something that could be the result of indirect lighting or other problems can only contribute to misunderstandings.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Shelia, I did not think that his wife looked happy when he was taking his oath. Gov. Dunleavy looked pressured and uncomfortable saying his oath and I thought that she looked concerned and I thought that the judge looked over at Dunleavy at one point like he was concerned also. Dunleavy seems to wobble on the fence and I worry that he will fall to the left and give us to the globalists. There is globalist infiltration already into our state and we need Dunleavy to be on the Conservative side to fight the globalists.

      Children are dying from the vaxx when it hits your close to heart. you will see….

  • Jen says:

    Remember following christ, some people will hate you. The world hated him before you. Real Christ followers are loyal and make excellent employees, and trustworthy truthful friends.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Jen, what you state is true. It is also good for brothers and sisters to call wrongdoing to attention to help a brother or sister keep walking down the narrow path. I certainly do not hate Gov. Dunleavy, but I am very concerned that he may not be the person that he is portraying himself to be. It is important for us, no matter what the season is, to stay awake and call out wrongdoing. There was a time when I would hear a speech like that and say, “Yah! Let’s just all get along!” Look where that mindset got us? There is now a Satanic hold on our state and we need to defeat it by not going along with worldly ways.
