In his call for a Special Session of the legislature to discuss a natural gas pipeline project, Governor Bill Walker surprised all the players by proposing a reserves gas tax on oil and natural gas. Such a tax would slam leaseholders on the Alaska North Slope for not bringing projects online.

Looks like Governor Bill Walker is going to do his best impersonation of Tony Knowles by allowing the Department of the Interior to create Indian Country here in Alaska. The vehicle appears to be response to a 2013 Parnell lawsuit against tribal trust lands.

While the rest of the state is out chasing salmon and filling freezers, former Backbone member Bill Walker is busily “nationalizing” natural gas utilities here in Alaska, reversing a decades old move to privatization that has all but solved recent Railbelt natural gas shortages.

Question: What happens when the Governor decides he really wants to be Commissioner of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G)? Answer: He starts recommending “cost effective” wildlife control techniques to his appointees.

Governor Bill Walker paints himself as a Wally Hickel acolyte, doing everything possible to bring Alaska as the Owner State into being. In this, the Owner State is defined with Alaska and in turn, all Alaskans collectively owning all resources of the state. This worldview defines Walker’s actions and the actions of the Backbone group he represents.

When we elect a lawyer as governor and they bring their fellow lawyers into the new government, one would logically question whose interests are being pursued? Those of the people of Alaska or those of the law firms employing those lawyers? This is the very essence of crony capitalism.

Interesting election here in Alaska. All four of the democrat sponsored ballot initiatives passed. Three required a yes vote. One required a no vote. Unfortunately for the democrats, the positive outcomes on the initiatives did not drag their candidates across the finish line with them for the most part.

Democrat candidate Bill Walker had himself a most interesting week this last one. Not only did he take mutually exclusive positions on budget cutting, but he covered up his own campaign incompetence with some good old Messenger Shooting.

So what happens when the second largest political party in the state pointedly disenfranchises some 52,000 of its primary voters for governor and 56,000 voters for LtGov? Surprisingly enough, we get a great round of applause, press conferences, smiling faces, positive media coverage, and happy union leaders.

Interesting that state and national democrats have determined that conducting a war on mining via campaign ads, particularly targeting the proposed Pebble Mine is their ticket to electoral success this year.
