WE ARE THE ONLY SOURCE ON THE WEB SO FAR TO PUBLISH BLM'S WRITTEN TESTIMONY AT THE HEARING ON 4/25.


DIRECT QUOTE BLM TESTIMONY:

"We note that if S. 340 is enacted other corporations might seek similar legislation for the substitution of new lands. In addition, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service notes that if S. 340 is enacted as proposed and the Tongass Forest Management Plan is modified, the Service may have to review its findings not to list the southeast Alaska distinct population segment (DPS) of Queen Charlotte goshawk and the Alexander Archipelago wolf."

WHO WE ARE


We and our supporters are Alaskans and Americans sick about corruption.

We can be found on islands off the coast of Alaska called Prince of Wales, Kupreanof, Kosciusko and Baranof.

ARE ALASKAN POLITICIANS PICKING OUR POCKETS AND CONTRIBUTING TO THE NATIONAL DEBT?


Soapy Smith was a card shark during the Alaska Gold Rush who fleeced hard working panhandlers of their gold.

The Alaska Congressional Delegation -- Soapy Lisa Murkowski, Soapy Mark Begich, and Soapy Don Young -- are fleecing taxpayers of hundreds of miles of roads, bridges, and other public investments in the Tongass National Forest, because todays political card sharks sponsored Land Grab Bills--S 730 and HR 1408.

ALASKA'S PERMANENT POLITICAL CLASS

CRONY CAPITALISM AT ITS WORST


  • S 730 and HR 1408 gives hundreds of millions of dollars of roads and bridges paid for by tax payers, to Sealaska.
  • S 730 and HR 1408 will create a boom and bust locally and then increase the national debt.

Soapy Mark


If Soapy Murkowski and Begich have their way, 132.8 square miles of the richest timber in Alaska will fall into the private hands of Sealaska Corporation who will then come back to taxpayers for subsidies of their otherwise unprofitable scheme. If Soapy Young has his way, even more will be lost to the public. Our jobs will be axed.

We are in the battle of our lives to kill the terrible bills S 730 and HR 1408 before Congress that would:

Young, Begich, and Murkowski have an apparently go along to come along Governor Parnell for a side kick.

  • Governor Parnell has bought the arguments of this one corporation hook line and sinker without consideration for the best interest of all Alaskans. Governor this bill will kill our jobs.
  • Senator Murkowski got $1,730,000 toward her election bundled by Byron Mallot who we could hear snickering as he stuffed the campaign coffers. His is Sealaska Corporation.
  • Senator Begich needs their votes next time around.
  • Representative Young, under federal investigation for doing favors in the past, is falling right in line.

We ask you to help us, because our fight is good for jobs, public access, sustainable forestry, abundant wildlife and fish, and if we loose this fight all this good will go down the tube.
