Security Group Hired By Alaska Senate Candidate Linked To Militia Group, Political Blogs Report

October 27, 2010 by  

Security group hired by Alaska Senate candidate linked to extremist group, political blogs reportSeveral Alaskan political blogs are claiming that a security company hired by Senate GOP candidate Joe Miller is tied to the Alaska Citizens Militia (ACM).

According to media reports, bloggers allege that the owner of the security detail Drop Zone — which arrested a journalist at a Miller campaign event on Oct. 17 — is a commander and "supply sergeant" for the ACM. On the militia group's website, political arrests and the restriction of freedom of speech are listed as "acts of war."

Earlier this week, the blog Immoral Minority posted a copy of Drop Zone's expired business license, which the security group attempted to reapply for on Oct. 19.

No charges will be filed against Alaska Dispatch editor Tony Hopfinger, who was arrested by Drop Zone guards for allegations of trespassing and assault while attempting to interview Miller. The candidate claimed that Hopfinger blocked his access to an exit and made threatening gestures and movements towards him, according to media reports.

Miller is expected to face stiff competition from write-in candidate Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) in November's midterm elections. On Oct. 20, Miller filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission against Super PAC, a group that provides financial support for Murkowski.

According to, Miller alleges that nine of the benefactors of Super PAC are in violation of Federal law because they contract with the Federal government.

    I find it funny that Miller is being forced to release his records when the President has spent millions to conceal his records! He served in the military, those records should be confidential. The President will not even produce his birth certificate, college records and so forth; what a discrace to the nation.

    • s c

      Teresa, you brought up a great point. There is a great difference in the way Miller is being treated and the way The Anointed One [aka alinsky's Messiah] is treated.
      In short, if you’re elected, if you’re black, if you’re a wanabe Chicago thug, if you’re anything but a conserative, if you hate America, if you think hypocrisy is better than the truth, if you have much to hide from America and if
      you went to Washington to destroy America, then you can do and say what you want.
      With a little luck, maybe a swell “patriotic” group like NPR will pick up on it and tell us what they want us to know (from THEIR infallible perspective, that is).

    • Christin

      Teresa & sc…,
      Have you guys all noticed that all the conservative candidates, especially the new Tea Party Constitutional Conservative Candiates, are being Demonized and Smeared by the Socialist Democrats.

      Look at what they did to CA Meg Whitman and the “wh-re” comment & maid firing drama, the SC female candidate who the two guys said & filed affidavids that she had TWO affairs while being married, MA O’Donnell’s witch comment and Elite Repubs not backing her, attacks on KY Rand Paul about his past, attacks on Alaska Joe Miller about his gov computer poll and finances, Sharron Angle being called a “b–ch” by the View and electronic voting problems in reid’s favor…. on and on the slanderous libel and hateful attacks go.

      The Progressive side isn’t playing (they aim to win even fi they have to steal it) and no doubt they have been attending to this Republican sunami by engineering ways to assassinate the conservative candidate politically and rig the election with electronic mal-functions, homeless voting repeatedly for food, not stopping illegals from voting, hand delivering ballots to inmates, but failing to send the military theirs on time (IL, NY)…

      People… we’d better have a sunami turnout to vote for the Conservative Candidates so there will not be any doubt.

    I concur with Teresa,if you are an illegal there are no holds barred,but if your are taxpaying citizen beware,I hope very much congress passes a law that says if you run for any legislative office you must provide a legal notorized birth certificate and not to be simply grandfathered in because you have eluded some other roadblocks.And no being a fiscal conservative I would not spend a million dollars or more hiding my birth certificate,in fact I am proud of mine and would love to show it to anyone!This Great Country has been Hijacked my friends!

        • s c

          Welcome to realityville, Eduardo. You never seem to tire of having BOTH feet in your mouth. As of today, you claim it’s wrong to have a use for murder (or whatever the hell you mean). For those who have an incredibly SHORT memory (and that includes YOU, Eduardo), it wasn’t long ago that progressives and your camp-following trollops were very vocal about the merits, joys and ‘great need’
          for George Bush to be murdered. REMEMBER THAT, Eduardo?
          Eduardo, I get the impression that you were never spanked, you slid through grade school and high school with a minimum of effort and that you have never had a decent grasp of the English language.
          Try as you may, every time you come to this website and dare to hurl your strange brand of feces to see if it sticks, you will be called on it.

    If someone will do ANYTHING to get elected, doesn’t that make them – in fact – a whore? Murkowski is willing to sell her soul JUST so she can be elected. DISGUSTING! Americans, we can SURELY do better than this! Vote for Miller! PLEASE, vote for Miller!!! Murkowski should be shown the door!!! NOW! I think the ad with her being depicted as a spoiled rotten baby crying ’cause she didn’t get the Republican nomination is EXTREMELY accurate! Perhaps someone should change her from the stinkiness she’s managed to create, too! The Republican Party WILL change and yield to the Tea Party, or the Tea Party will create a third party, making the Republicans irrelevant. They get to decide… RIGHT NOW!

    • slickporsche

      HAHAHAHAHA Ain’t that a bitch? HAHAHA

  • Alvin Palmer

    I’m not a lawyer but I think there may be a possibility that a case could be made: If the President of the United States of America did not have to release and disclose HIS records before an election – then NO candidate for ANY office can be forced to produce his or her records. The precedent seems to have been set by BHO. To quote one of my Mom’s favorite sayings: “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.”

  • slickporsche

    We need more militia groups willing to take our republic back at any cost. 3 million strong would be a nice number and very possible. We need to elect a new president/vice president and then march on the White House and install the new one. It can be done. Even 1 million armed, angry, and dangerous Americans would be formadable. Lets get er done, the powder won’t stay dry for ever.

    • Robert S

      Joe Miller’s mistake was not hiring the Black Panthers for security. Then he wouldn’t have all this trouble.

      • Independent

        He wouldn’t have his life, either.

    Anyone the Demos dislike, I feel certain that he/she is an outstanding citizen (just LOOK at the scum we have in office!). The fact that Joe Miller is being attacked by Murkowski – as well as the Demos. convinces methat the he is and outstanding citizen. This disgusting back-handed move by them is, to me, evidence that gangsterism has much amuck in their attempt to keep the Party in force by some of the dirtiest and most criminal elements in Washington today! IF we wish to save this country from collapse (on which it teeters) then a Republican takeover is our only chance left for our country to keep existing. JUST take a look at what we now have! Would you have ever thought that we couldsink so low?

  • http://gunner689 gunner689

    The Blog making this charge against Miller wouldn’t be affiliated with those weasels whose trivial lawsuits forced Sarah to resign as governor ? Among those was that she was wearing a ballcap at a snowmobile race her husband was competing in. It had the make of his sled on it. She was forced to spend over $500,000. to defend against these suits from political hacks intent on destroying her. If this tactic. worked against her they hope it will work against Miller. If Murkowski gets reelected she may well do an Arlen Specter out of scorn.

    Is this Alaska militia illegal? There may well come a time when we will wish we had more like them in every State.

  • Art Hotchkiss

    The Alaska State Militia is a formally recognized militia which is under direct command of the Alaska Governor. It is a professional organization with many upstanding citizens as active members. No, they don’t go running around in the woods on weekends in camo carrying machine guns.

    The civility of American politics is being challenged as it has not been since the Civil War, we are experiencing a time that will determine the fate of this country and it’s very existence. Miller is only recieving the blunt end of the Deemer stick but I am sure his kind will survive and it looks as though “his kind” are who will be there to represent the very essence of this country’s beliefs and all her traditions. I wish Miller all the best and anyone who has his kind of thinking.

    As for the Barry Sotero crowd….I wish them gone.

  • Patricio Vigil

    These blogs spreading the lies and innuendos are run by the party of fraud. DEMOCRAPS. The amount of fraud already going on is sick. Early voters have discovered Voting machines in Nevada, North Carolina and others are preset to cast votes for democraps. The unions have been given the contracts to operate and set up the machines. This country has been sold out by the SEIU (union) teachers union and the communists in D.C. We must take the country BACK NOW.

  • http://none Mike

    Seems like the dems (with Mercommies help I bet)are trying to make the point that he used one of thoes big scary millitia groups to protect himself. If I had threats comming in every day like I bet he does I would do the same. Alot of us dont get to see that side of it though. I think thet there will be more and more scens like this the closer we get to the election. The dems will get more and more desprate to discredit the conservitive’s. So they will manufacture more of this kind of story useing their operatives from Move On and the black panther folks( Paul has seen this allready in Ky.)Mike L.

    Most Americans, 60-70 per cent by any reasonable measure, support the Obama health care overhaul as it is written OR wish that it went further. Those of you who get your ‘news’ by suckin g on the Faux Noose gaspipe will disagree, of course.

    Now remember that Faux supports the Rethuglican Party FINANCIALLY as well as editorially. Funny how you Teabaggers do not see any bad irony in Faux extolling the ‘virtues’ of the politicians that they underwrite—showing precisely how ignorant you sheeple are when it comes to deducing a truer overview of the current events from a RANGE of sources, which is what thinking people do.

    You Fright Wingers hate the truth! You are angry with Wikileaks for CORRECTLY and Righteously pointing out our military “heroes” penchant for raping and murdering schoolkids.
    Shame on you!! The truth sure does sting, doesn’t it?

    • independant thinker

      “Most Americans, 60-70 per cent by any reasonable measure, support the Obama health care overhaul as it is written OR wish that it went further.”

      Thats funny, every poll I have seen said just the opposite.

    • Ruth

      Here’s what Obamacare will bring to everyone. Is this what you agree with?

      It is in less than four months, on January 1, 2011, the largest tax hikes in the history of America will take effect.

      They will hit families and small businesses in three great waves.

      On January 1, 2011, here is what happens…

      First Wave:

      Expiration of 2001 and 2003 Tax Relief

      In 2001 and 2003, the GOP Congress enacted several tax cut for investors, small business owners, and families.

      These will all expire on January 1, 2011.

      Personal income tax rates will rise.

      The top income tax rate will rise from 35 to 39.6 percent (this is also the rate at which two-thirds of small business profits are taxed). The lowest rate will rise from 10 to 15 percent. All the rates in between will also rise.

      Itemized deductions and personal exemptions will again phase out, which has the same mathematical effect as higher marginal tax rates.

      The full list of marginal rate hikes is below:

      •The 10% bracket rises to an expanded 15%
      •The 25% bracket rises to 28%
      •The 28% bracket rises to 31%
      •The 33% bracket rises to 36%
      •The 35% bracket rises to 39.6%

      Higher taxes on marriage and family…

      The “marriage penalty” (narrower tax brackets for married couples) will return from the first dollar of income.

      The child tax credit will be cut in half from $1000 to $500 per child.

      The standard deduction will no longer be doubled for married couples relative to the single level.

      The dependent care and adoption tax credits will be cut.

      The return of the Death Tax…

      This year only, there is no death tax. (It’s a quirk!) For those dying on or after January 1, 2011, there is a 55 percent top death tax rate on estates over $1 million. A person leaving behind two homes, a business, a retirement account could easily pass along a death tax bill to their loved ones. Think of the farmers who do not make much money, but their land, which they purchased years ago with after-tax dollars, is now worth a lot of money. Their children will have to sell the farm, which may be their livelihood, just to pay the estate tax if they do not have the cash sitting around to pay the tax.

      Think about your own family’s assets. Maybe your family owns real estate, or a business that does not make much money, but the building and equipment are worth $1 million. Upon their death, you can inherit the $1 million business tax free, but if they own a home, stock, cash worth $500K on top of the $1 million business, then you will owe the government $275,000 cash! That is 55% of the value of the assets over $1 million! Do you have that kind of cash sitting around waiting to pay the estate tax?

      Higher tax rates on savers and investors…

      The capital gains tax will rise from 15 percent this year to 20 percent in 2011.

      The dividends tax will rise from 15 percent this year to 39.6 percent in 2011.

      These rates will rise another 3.8 percent in 2013.

      Second Wave:


      There is over twenty new or higher taxes in Obamacare. Several will first go into effect on January 1, 2011. They include:

      The “Medicine Cabinet Tax”

      Thanks to Obamacare, Americans will no longer be able to use health savings account (HSA), flexible spending account (FSA), or health reimbursement (HRA) pre-tax dollars to purchase non-prescription, over-the-counter medicines (except insulin).

      The “Special Needs Kids Tax”

      This provision of Obamacare imposes a cap on flexible spending accounts (FSAs) of $2500 (Currently, there is no federal government limit). There is one group of FSA owners for whom this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous; parents of special needs children.

      There are thousands of families with special needs children in the United States and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education.

      Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington, D.C. (National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year.

      Under tax rules, FSA dollars cannot be used to pay for this type of special needs education.

      The HSA (Health Savings Account) Withdrawal Tax Hike.

      This provision of Obamacare increases the additional tax on non-medical early

      withdrawals from an HSA from 10 to 20 percent, disadvantaging them relative to IRAs and other tax-advantaged accounts, which remain at 10 percent.

      Third Wave:

      The Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) and Employer Tax Hikes

      When Americans prepare to file their tax returns in January of 2011, they’ll be in for a nasty surprise-the AMT won’t be held harmless, and many tax relief provisions will have expired.

      The major items include…

      The AMT will ensnare over 28 million families, up from 4 million last year.

      According to the left-leaning Tax Policy Center, Congress’ failure to index the AMT

      will lead to an explosion of AMT taxpaying families rising from 4 million last year to 28.5 million. These families will have to calculate their tax burdens twice, and pay taxes at the higher level. The AMT was created in 1969 to ensnare a handful of taxpayers.

      Small business expensing will be slashed and 50% expensing will disappear.

      Small businesses can normally expense (rather than slowly-deduct, or “depreciate”) equipment purchases up to $250,000.

      This will be cut all the way down to $25,000. Larger businesses can currently expense half of their purchases of equipment.

      In January of 2011, all of it will have to be “depreciated.”

      Taxes will be raised on all types of businesses.

      There are literally scores of tax hikes on business that will take place. The biggest is the loss of the “research and experimentation tax credit,” but there are many, many others. Combining high marginal tax rates with the loss of this tax relief will cost jobs.

      Tax Benefits for Education and Teaching Reduced…

      The deduction for tuition and fees will not be available.

      Tax credits for education will be limited.

      Teachers will no longer be able to deduct classroom expenses.

      Coverdell Education Savings Accounts will be cut.

      Employer-provided educational assistance is curtailed.

      The student loan interest deduction will be disallowed for hundreds of thousands of families.

      Charitable Contributions from IRAs no longer allowed…

      Under current law, a retired person with an IRA can contribute up to $100,000 per year directly to a charity from their IRA.

      This contribution also counts toward an annual “required minimum distribution.” This ability will no longer be there.

      PDF Version

      And worse yet…

      Now, your insurance will be INCOME on your W2′s!

      One of the surprises we’ll find come next year, is what follows – - a little “surprise” that 99% of us had no idea was included in the “new and improved” healthcare legislation . . . those who backed this administration will be astonished!

      Starting in 2011, (next year folks), your W-2 tax form sent by your employer will be increased to show the value of whatever health insurance you are given by the company. It does not matter if that is a private concern or governmental body of some sort.

      If you are retired? So what… your gross will go up by the amount of insurance you get. You will be required to pay taxes on a large sum of money that you have never seen. Take your tax form you just finished and see what $15,000 or $20,000 additional gross does to your tax debt. That is what you will pay next year.

      For many, it also puts you into a new higher bracket so it is even worse.

      This is how the government is going to buy insurance for the15% that does not have insurance and it is only part of the tax increases.

      Not believing this??? Here is a research of the summaries…

      On page 25 of 29: TITLE IX REVENUE PROVISIONS- SUBTITLE A: REVENUE OFFSET PROVISIONS-(sec. 9001, as modified by sec. 10901) Sec.9002 “requires employers to include in the W-2 form of each employee the aggregate cost of applicable employer sponsored group health coverage that is excludable from the employees gross income.”

  • David J. Sanchez

    Murkoski has shown her true reason for not accepting the results of the people’s voting for her opponent Joe Miller in the Alaska primary–she is nothing but a sore loser and really doesn’t care to back the people’s choice unless it is her and her alone. For that reason alone the people should reject her in the November election and send her packing. What a waste of time and money, she is nothing but a cry baby and will never grow up and realize the truth, but will do anything and everything to derail her opponent’s chances of winning by innuendo and insinuation of his character being less than perfect. But it only shows just how desperate and despicable a person she is to not accept the will of the people of her state of Alaska. I wish the best for Joe Miller and if he doesn’t work out in the job then down the road the people have the right to campaign for another Senate candidate. Dave Sanchez.

  • Hachi

    Corruption in Alaska is not new. Back story. Alaska’s capitol is in Juneau (southeast AK). The only way to get to Juneau is by air or boat. Which means the state legislators are isolated (protected) from the people. Approximately 30,000 people (out of AK’s 550,000) live there. Their motive operandi on hot issues; if the citizens wished to go to their representatives and have influence on the their (legislators) stance, on the day of the vote they would find an excuse to “postpone” the vote. Thereby costing the citizens a great expense to fly back to the capitol for the “postponed” vote. The citizens said enough of this tactic. They got the signatures to put an initiative on the next election ballot to move the capitol from Juneau to Wassila (near Anchorage) where 350,000 people live. The legislators did not want this. They would lose their isolation/protection from the citizens. So, it’s the early 1980′s and here comes the Nov 2 election. Remember, at that time there was a 3 hour time difference from Juneau to Anchorage. Also remember there was no ban on exit polling and predictions/projections by the media. As the early election results came out,the media was calling for a landslide to keep the capitol in Juneau. The problem was. the early results were from JUNEAU, where their residents did not want it to leave. In south central Alaska as voting progressed in the early evening there was a mysterious “power outage” that knocked out power to the entire Anchorage area. No power, no voting. A petition to the court was immediately put in to extend the hours of the polling places due to the “power outage”. It was denied by the judge. So between the media predicting a victory to keep the capitol in Juneau (influencing the public into a why bother to go vote attitude), the power outage, and the judge denying extending the hours, the capitol stayed in Juneau. Right after the election the corrupt legislature voted to spend some $30,000,000 to “renovate” the capitol thereby ensuring it never would leave Juneau and the representatives would be secure from the citizens. An investigation was conducted on the “power outage”. The result was, seriously now, a bird landed on the wires at a power station (I believe the station on the Old Palmer Highway) and that one bird shorted out the entire Anchorage voting district, for hours. So unless you voted early you were denied your vote that day. I know, I lived in that district at the time.

  • Hachi

    And while I am on the subject of Alaska. a little history lesson. When Sarah Palin was running fro Vice President, the media was trying to make a connection between Palin and Alaska’s attempt to secede from the union (United States). Here’s what happened. When AK became a state it had to turn over “X” amount of state land to federal control. At agreed upon designated time periods the Fed was to turn incremental amounts of land back to state control. For years the Fed reneged on the deal and would not turn the land back over. In frustration, the Governor of the state appointed a commission to investigate the possibility of seceding from the union to form its own “country”. The act of appointing a commission scared the Fed into releasing the land it promised to do, back to state control. And the commission was disbanded. Alaskans are a hearty, independent people who refer to the rest of the continental US as “the lower 48″ and themselves as the Last Frontier. And they weren’t going to put up the the Feds broken promises.
