Alaska is no different than the other states in one regard: we have constitutional dolts running our governments, on the state and federal level. They have not read their history, the Federalist papers, the conditions on which the individual states accepted the federal Constitution, nor the plain texts of our own flawed document, rendered (with important modifications) by a socialist think-tank from the University of Chicago.

“The constitution means whatever the supreme court says,” is how most congressional and state legislators think the system operates. It is absolute B.S., but the momentum of this theft has centuries of jurisprudence behind it. Thus, when legislative lawyers are asked if court interpretations should be obeyed, guess whose side they take? They have been drilled in law school that case law trumps all others, when the opposite is true.

In the latest crisis of the courts here in the 49th (there have been so many it would take five columns to list and explain them), we are told that correspondence courses cannot be reimbursed by the state. Why? Because a judge says so! In the meantime, we are told that democracy is under threat from the conservative side of the spectrum, because the lamestream media says so.

So … it must be true? All other voices have been suppressed and ignored, ridiculed and banished, despite the fact that in the last four years, time and time again “conspiracy theory” has turned into “conspiracy fact.” This is true from not just the Covid Hoax but also on January 6, the stolen election of 2020 and the various shades of the colossal lie called the “climate crisis.”

We do not have “three co-equal branches of government” like you are always told. The judiciary branch is the bottom feeder, followed by the executive, with the legislative branch being supreme.

All Dunleavy needs to proclaim is the following: “Empowered by the state constitution with the enforcement powers granted to me, I will continue to permit the reimbursement of correspondence courses for students in this state, and recommend that impeachment articles be drawn up by the state senate for any and all judges who believe that they have enforcement powers.”

Even liberals have been known to say, “Our state constitution empowers our governor with immense authority, and is quite unique in this regard.” It may or may not be a good thing, but when there is likely a consensus from both sides of the aisle, for heaven’s sake, Mr. Dunleavy – USE IT!

Here is the citation from Article III, Sec. 16 of the Alaska Constitution:

He may, by appropriate court action or proceeding brought in the name of the State, enforce compliance with any constitutional or legislative mandate, or restrain violation of any constitutional or legislative power, duty, or right by any officer, department, or agency of the State or any of its political subdivisions. This authority shall not be construed to authorize any action or proceeding against the legislature.

With the phrase, “or proceeding brought in the name of the state,” he need not utilize the courts, who in this case are the guilty party. He needs to “enforce compliance with the state and legislative mandate” to reimburse correspondence courses. He needs to “restrain violation of any constitutional or legislative power by any officer, department, or agency of the state,” which in this case is the tyrannical judiciary.

And you will notice that there is only one exception – the legislative branch.

NOT the judicial branch.

Wake up, citizens. We do not have “three co-equal branches of government” like you are always told. The judiciary branch is the bottom feeder, followed by the executive, with the legislative branch being supreme.

In the end, this may be the reason for the hesitancy of the executive and legislative branches – it will begin an unraveling of the corrupt judicial branch, and relegate them to the corner of the machinations of state government, hopefully with an enormous dunce cap. But as the late Vic Fisher said, “Liberals will always control the judiciary,” and it is the judicial branch that has suppressed the Grand Juries, warped the privacy clause, and have wrapped our beleaguered state around their little fingers for so long, we are like Gulliver being tied down by Lilliputians.

Yes, all branches of government can make constitutional mistakes. For too long, however, we have viewed the judiciary as gurus and gods, and have surrendered our republic to their individual piques and political biases.

Here is the opportunity to end it.

  • Caleb Murphy says:

    Every time Bird speaks, his credibility diminishes. This time he embarrassed himself by writing: “ Covid Hoax but also on January 6, the stolen election of 2020 and the various shades of the colossal lie called the “climate crisis.” All three of those claims are the opposite of truth. And why? Because there is EVIDENCE, whereas there is zero evidence to support the Trumpy claims.

    • Lobo says:

      I recommend TDS medications. Give us some links to that “DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE” to support your claims.

    • John. J Otness says:

      Its refreshing. to see someone as blatantly delusional as Mr Murphy…
      It puts the why this crazy world is so crazy in perspective.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Caleb, what the heck are you even talking about? I am looking forward to when you and the other trolls are held accountable for what you write and speak.

    • Proud Alaskan says:

      So tell me, it’s not so, that you Happily got the covid shot and you’re still wearing a mask in your car by yourself.
      Plus the sky is falling, global/climate change what ever. Go crawl back into your cave.

    • DoneWithIt says:

      Caleb, time for another booster shot.
      Do it for the children and mother earth.
      Your depth of intellect and caring is truly astounding.

    I’ve reluctantly agreed with mr Birds assessment . Not in the presented fact’s, but in the hopes that dunleavy will in fact do the right thing , which another opportunity has again been presented to him, this time with very articulate instructions as to how to proceed. Mind you this governor has had multiple opportunities to use his authority and position for the good of this state, to substantiate righteousness and accountability as foundational principals! Will he fail again? Probably. I’m not getting my hopes up!

    Here is an interesting video that Ezra Cohen shared on twitter (accesible w/out acct) about how words and ideas are highly effective weapons.
