Target, one of the largest retailers in the country, has three stores in Alaska – two in Anchorage and one in Wasilla. Shopping there, however, comes with a hidden cost according to 2ndVote, an organization that scores businesses based on their support of hot-button social issues like abortion, same-sex marriage, religious liberty and others. “Even though Target is extremely popular, buying products there undermines your values based on their continuous support of the leftist agenda,”...

In 1978, the Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA), otherwise known as the Hatch Amendment was passed after parents were shocked and outraged to learn that trusted teachers were using the classroom for therapy instead of education. Teachers pried into the private lives of students and their family by asking sensitive information about political, religious and personal beliefs. Little did parents realize that teachers would overstep their bounds once again by asking questions of a sexual nature...

The big issue in Fairbanks this week was the pornographic LGBT curriculum the Fairbanks North Star School District’s curriculum committee is trying to add to literature classes. A lot of concerned citizens showed up for the Jan. 21 School Board meeting to testify. The room was standing room only with people out the door. They then found out that the school board only allows one hour of testimony, so most didn’t get to speak, and...

Despite a majority of Republicans in both houses of the Alaska Legislature, bills intended to promote pro-life laws, parental rights, religious liberty and restrictions on pornography and sex-education in schools are not likely to land on Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s desk for his signature. With leadership of the House once again organized into a multi-party majority, socially conservative legislators have far less influence than they would if House leadership was traditionally structured according to party affiliation....

While many elected officials are preparing for the pivotal challenge of Alaska Legislature to address the state’s mounting fiscal crisis, Sen. Elvi Gray-Jackson, an Anchorage Democrat, wants to set aside time to convince colleagues that celebrating LGBTQ Pride Month is an integral part of being an Alaskan. Her Senate Bill 147 would permanently establish June as LGBTQ Pride Month. Prefiled on Jan. 17, the legislation looks to celebrate Alaska’s “vibrant cultural diversity” and to “dismiss...

In the face of community resistance, the Fairbanks North Star School district remains undeterred in its push to introduce controversial LGBTQ curriculum into classrooms. A group working on the plan met Jan. 9 in Fairbanks to discuss a second draft of proposed curriculum that would expose youth to sexual themes in English and social studies classes. The school district’s executive director of teaching and learning, began the Jan. 9 meeting with a warning that it...
