The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly voted on June 16 to introduce an ordinance that would establish the area as a Second Amendment sanctuary. Written by Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce the ordinance was approved for introduction at the next Assembly meeting on July 7. Two of the seven Assembly members opposed even introducing the measure, which they believed was ill defined and unnecessary given that federal and state constitutions already protect Second Amendment rights. Assembly Members...

The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly will consider whether to establish the borough as a Second Amendment sanctuary. An ordinance to that effect was written by Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce. The June 16 Assembly meeting will include a discussion on whether to introduce the ordinance for future debate and public comment. The measure begins by quoting the U.S. and State Constitutions, both of which affirm: “A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free...

Sen. Lisa Murkowski quickly jumped at the chance to show her support for the LGBTQ political agenda by praising the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to redefine sex to include gender identity and expression and sexual orientation when it comes to enforcing violations of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Conservative and religious groups worry that the court’s June 15 opinion will serve as a tool to roll back religious liberties, free speech and the ability of...

Properly understanding constitutions and charters is not hard. They are kept simple because the people ought to be able to comprehend them and, at least in a virtuous culture, sound the alarm if and when they might be violated. The trouble is we have permitted the prostitution of our constitutions because we have bought into the lie that “The constitution means whatever the courts say it means.” In the absence of a Natural Law arbiter,...

In its ongoing attempt to harness outrage over the death of George Floyd to advance progressive social issues, the Anchorage chapter of the Party for Socialism & Liberation is organizing another march through Anchorage. This time the theme is “Queer Wrath.” LGBT activists regularly designate June as “Pride Month” and hold parades, carnivals and social events to promote gender identity politics and the normalizing of LGBT sexuality in schools, libraries, workplaces and the broader culture....

The U.S. Supreme Court issued an opinion on June 15 that redefines “sex” to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” when determining sex discrimination in the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The 6-3 decision redefines the federal law, which was written at a time when everyone accepted that there were only two sexes. Many conservatives believe the Supreme Court’s decision is a classic case of judicial activism which could have dire consequences for faith-based businesses and...

The Palmer City Council’s June 9 meeting included more than two hours of public testimony, mostly in support of Police Chief Dwayne Shelton who was placed on administrative leave with pay last month following the discovery of certain social media comments he posted in 2018. Widely circulated last month, Shelton’s Facebook comments called the Black Lives Matter movement “a hate group plain and simple.” He added, however, “I choose to respect all people of every...

There were no reports of vandalism or violence. Before taking to the streets, protesters gathered to hear speeches near the Palmer Depot. Speakers shared stories of...
