Fresh update on "alaska" discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated

"And like I said, Q with regard to the defense budget, we are putting forward, we Republicans are much more robust budget, but we also need to be both overtly and covertly telling the Chinese that, hey, this is not what they should be doing and we have the right to retaliate. And I always say in terms of retaliation, whether it's cyber or other things, it can be asymmetric. It can be symmetric, but it's got to be at the time of our choosing. So again, we need to take a tougher stance with regard to China, but the biggest thing they watch, the biggest thing they watch is what we're spending on defense, not what we're saying, but what we're doing. And in that regard, we need to do more. So last question, senator Dan Sullivan from Alaska member of armed services. The NDAA is the most important piece of legislation. It should come first. It's held up on the floor. Will there get will it move forward in a rational way with everything that it needs. Today, tomorrow the next day. Well, first of all, I agree with you that this is one of the most important pieces of legislation. It moves every year it's moved every year in the Congress for over 60 years and again, this goes to the prioritization of where the national Democrats are who we pass this out of committee in July. Wow. Schumer Schumer brought up the bill two weeks ago end of the year and we had been calling for him to bring it to the floor since what the heck are you doing? We were confirming low level nominees for weeks as they behind closed doors try to get their build back better. By the way, build back better to the 1970s, the malays and Jimmy Carter is what they're bringing upon this fact of the future. I'd love to come on the show again and talk about their high energy prices, which they are purposely driving up, but now we have it on the floor, and you may have seen the NDAA, we blocked it moving forward yesterday or two days ago because we wanted more amendments. This is, look, I work on this all year being on the committee, but a lot of senators want to have the opportunity to bring amendments forward. For example, on Nord stream, where Biden is appeasing Putin in Europe on the natural gas pipeline, we want to have amendments that we can bring to the floor. I think you're going to see that today. But this is, again, where do they prioritize? Let me give you another one that nobody has even followed at all. We right now have a chairman of the joint chiefs and the vice chairman of the joint chiefs position is empty. It's empty. Why? Because Biden didn't even put forward a nominee after general heighten had to retire due to statute. So we have an empty spot right now because they didn't care about the military. It's unforgivable. Well, keep coming back, senator Sullivan asked senator Murkowski to join you. I hope she wins reelection. I will help her get that reelection run up in Alaska. We need you two people representing America's northernmost state, the one that borders with Russia in position of authority in the Senate. Thank you, Dan Sullivan. I'll be right back America on the Hugh Hewitt show..

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Visited Accused Jan. 6 Rioters in Jail

"Welcome back to one on one with Marjorie Taylor Greene. Marjorie, it's such an indictment of the business as usual, political establishment, not just the rhinos, but actually the GOP establishment that we've had hundreds of arrests. We've had the FBI chase down people who weren't even inside Congress on January 6th in Alaska. I've got friends telling me my friend was not even near Congress and they tracked her with the phone data. The phone company gave the geolocating data were you outside Congress, just insanity, the FBI hunting down these people instead of BLM or antifa. You are one of a handful of politicians, citizen politicians whose actually trying to get to the bottom of it and to fight for these Americans who are guaranteed by our constitution, a speedy, a speedy judicial process, you went to the prison, they refused you access you were so kind to call us after your visit for those who didn't hear your story. Tell us what you found when you went to this hellhole in D.C. where these people are being kept prisoner. I found something I never thought I'd see in our country. I found something that we've seen in movies and we hear stories about in other countries. I found out that what I thought was Internet rumors and not fully true, I found out it's all true. Everything we've been hearing is true about what's happening is January 6th defendants. Not only that I've talked to people who've had their homes raided by the FBI in the dark of night. I talked to one man and his wife, where they had handcuffed their child with handcuffed and she was dragged out in the front yard and nothing but a nightie and then the small town newspaper where they lived took a picture of her and put her on the front page of the newspaper, and that woman wasn't even in Washington, D.C. on January 6th. She was in California at home. And this is what's happening, but then I met people and Sebastian, I want to tell you I tried for months to get in that jail and several of my colleagues went with me, Louie gohmert, Matt Gaetz, Paul gosar, Andy Biggs, bob good. Those are the ones that have come along. They've been there every time, but they've definitely tried to. And I've tried every single time to get in. But finally, we went in, we were allowed for a tour of the whole jail. Well, I want to tell you we saw the whole jail. Except. Except the January 6th event in area, except the patriot wing.

"Hello welcome back to the show. My name is matt. My name is knoll. they called me. Ben we're joined as always with our super producer. Paul mission control deck. And most importantly you are you you are here and that makes this the stuff they don't want you to know we're going on a journey today. Fellow conspiracy realist. We are traveling too far north. We're headed to alaska. We are looking for a town. It's a place you could easily miss unless you knew exactly where you were going and you knew exactly what you're looking for. This is a story of disaster to story of death and some would. Have you believe it is a story of monsters. Today's question what happened to port. Lock alaska before we begin nat knoll. Ed you guys heard of this town before before. We started researching us. I had not when i first came upon the stuffing you know shared it around with everybody. I had never heard of it. I'd never even heard of the peninsula that we're gonna be talking about this. This whole area I i know nothing. I just know. it's frontier. It's alaska and i remember tiny bits of some of the history from. Do you remember that discovery show. That came out a long time ago. Then it was like it was the first fiction show. That discovery was making it was about. Alaska didn't our ceo connel burn has something to do with that back in his discovery days. I think so. I just remember i remember looking quite a bit of alaska around that time and just learning about how you think the american west as it was you know changing and as westerners were moving out to the west like how rough that was but then realizing just how tough it was to exist in alaska in the in those earlier times Seventeen hundred eighteen hundreds even the early nineteen hundreds. Well what was the impetus to settle out. There been like it seemed like so inhospitable was there was it about establishing trade or were there resources to exploit or a combination. Yeah both and then later. It became important and remains important geopolitical barrier during the days of the cold war alaska. Very very close to russia right and so it behooves the us at least in their calculations to have something between their continent and russia. This this place is inhospitable. it is still dangerous. Will probably alluded to this a couple times in today's episode but a few years back paul mission control night traveled to alaska in a believe was the first time for both of us. This was in the production of a show called missing in alaska which also centers around a mystery in the far north and Yeah it's it's very much on the edge of the wild in a way that many residents of the us would be unfamiliar with and would would perhaps find dangerous. But where did you guys travel to when you made the chirp. Yeah we were in anchorage. Alaska that's where that's the one of the easiest places to fly in and we landed there. We were there for about two weeks. And we were gathering gathering footage gathering tape gathering interviews and paul traveled to. I don't want to say too much. Without spoiling this story but paul and our host traveled to a incredibly remote location in alaska on the open ocean and to an island searching for a plane crash. Those are the teasers. The show is available for free on your podcast platform of choice smash that like in. Subscribe button or whatever legal sick days. I guess my my point is you. You guys have personal experience. Just being in alaska though. It is a massive place and specifically On an island so like experiencing the water like the shores and the water and how frigid and how dangerous that can be. Yes so it may surprise people to know that even in the modern day Life in many parts of alaska is at the mercy of nature in the passage of the seasons so there are times where the ocean may simply be a non navigable in certain parts right and there are for instance when we were out working on this. We were racing against time because we had seasoned experts and veterans pilots captains. Who were saying. Look i've been doing this for decades. And if x y z. Don't come together before this season. Then you're gonna have to wait another year and that's just that's just the reality of living with nature in a way that many people don't nowadays because the majority of human beings live in urban areas. But this this sets the stage just going to a very brutal place. Here are the facts. Nowadays port lock or what port lock used to be the site where port lock was located is abandoned. This was once a pretty bustling hive of activity at the very edge of the frontier. It is located as you said matt on very southern edge of something called the kenai peninsula is right in the closest town is a little bitty plays about sixteen miles to the north called sell dove. chaz distinctly nordic quality to the to the name And just to give you an idea of exactly how remote this place is. Sell dough via Only has around three hundred residents there. No roads leading in or out and it can only be reached by a small plane or boat because there's obviously airport so it has to be one of those planes that land on the water. If i'm not mistaken. Yeah and the same really goes for poor chatham or port lock. Where what we're talking about here and if you look at it on a map you guys. It's if it's at the edge of nowhere there's ocean there a few islands right outside of where it is like some tiny little islands. And there's you know some state parks around it and port graham d- and then like you said sedova and that's like that's it. It's it's it's incredible to imagine that people showed up there and started work to create any kind of living quarters or even a business. Yeah and the story already gets a little bit confusing. Because this place was known as port lock and a lot of people outside of alaska outside of this region will refer to it as port lock but people who live in the area often use. The free often used the import chatham interchangeably. That's because portland is located import chatham bay but there's another nearby community called poor chatham additionally there are a ton of places named ports something or other in alaska why this sounds a little weird at first cheers why it is important to remember modern exploration of the area by which we mean after people have been living there for thousands of years modern exploration. The area depended heavily on maritime transportation of resources and people. there were no planes..

The Murder of Shelley Connolly

"Shelly's murder occurred during the time prolific. Serial killer robert hanssen preyed on women in anchorage and the surrounding area. The year shelley died seven. Other women were murdered in anchorage. Detectives had their hands full and although they investigated shelley's case they seemingly made little progress. Crime stoppers in anchorage asked for information from the public on the whereabouts of a man known s pinky who lived in the keanae area and according to detectives they interviewed numerous witnesses and possible suspects. Even flying to the lower forty eight to track down some individuals none of their leads panned out though and the case went cold. Detectives reopened shelley's case several times between nineteen seventy eight and nineteen ninety seven and police identified new suspects but they never found enough evidence to link anyone conclusively to shelly's murder by nineteen ninety seven. Dna testing had become a reality. And the alaska. Scientific crime detection laboratory developed a dna profile from the samples collected from under shelley's fingernails and from her jeans. Detectives compare the dna profiles from shelly samples to the dna from possible suspects but nothing matched in two thousand. Three investigators uploaded the dna profile collected from shelly to the combined dna index system or code us but they were again disappointed to find no match.

The vagrant bird ends up as a stranger in a strange land. And who knows if it will ever find. It's way home again stay. Let's take a closer look now at a couple specific groups of birds that live in alaska to keep this episode from going on for hours and hours. I won't dig into every family of birds you'll find in alaska. I'm just going to single out a couple the tar megan's and the ox did he just say auks auks. I've heard there are musk. Oxen alaska is that what he means musk's but those aren't birds. I'm so confused. Yes there are. Musk oxen alaska. As i can attest from having recently seen those shambling beasts up close with my very own eyes they're super cool and their calves are insanely cute. But no i'm not talking about. Musk ox. I'm talking about ox a u. k. 's auks are all the birds in the family l. city these are the buffon's moore's murrelets audits guillemots and other such characters. They're chunky fish eating seabirds. That swim around underwater. Like miniature penguins. They aren't closely related to penguins at all. But they've evolved to have a similar lifestyle and appearance but unlike penguins auks can still fly. I'll do an entire episode on the family. Lcd at some point. But for now. I just want to point out. That alaska is kind of like auk heaven. There are about seventeen species found. They're not too shabby considering. There are only twenty four oc species. In the world these birds nest on alaska's rocky coastlines but spend the rest of the year far out to see the most famous of alaska's species are the tufted..

"And it's super important for the ecosystems of alaska shore birds and waterfowl play vital roles in the food webs of freshwater coastal and tundra ecosystems. They eat ungodly amounts of vegetation and invertebrate biomass. They fertilize the soil and water with their nitrogen. Rich droppings and of course they end up as meals for furry predators like foxes and weasels circle of life. And all that yada. Yada lots of migrant species spend the summer on the tundra or alaska's wetlands these are essential breeding habitats for migrant birds but there are also specific places along migratory pathways that are nearly as important on their long distance. Journeys migrants need to stop to rest and refuel. They do this predictably. In the same places year after year these places are called stopover sites or staging areas for example the copper river delta in south central alaska is an enormous wetland that serves as a stopover site for birds like western sandpiper and done when they stopped to feed on the mudflats of the delta before flying much farther north to their breeding territories. So why is alaska so attractive to migratory birds. Why do they bother flying. All that way to breed in far-flung seemingly desolate landscapes. Why not just stay in the tropics where everything is sort of more pleasant biologist have different hypotheses to explain this but in general it's thought that the habitats of the far north are great places for birds to breed because one there is an explosion of insect life every summer. This superabundance represents tons of food to feed growing chicks too. There's a lot of open space. Which means there might be less competition for nesting and foraging habitat three. The days are super long. So there's plenty of time for courtship nest building and finding food for your insatiable young ones and four compared to more tropical places. Birds breeding in high latitudes may also have fewer predators parasites and diseases to deal with..

"Any endemic species. The answer for alaska is yes. There is a grand total of one endemic bird in alaska and that is mckay's bunting plectrums phoenix hyper boreas. Mckay's bunting is a cute little songbird that lives on only two remote islands in the bering sea. It's a close relative of the snow. Bunting plectrums phoenix nevada. Both species are in the family call. Caridi which also includes the long spurs the ancestors of mckay's bunting were probably snow buntings who found themselves isolated on those islands at the end of the last glacial maximum when the sea level rose and drowned most of the land bridge that once connected eurasia and north america but interestingly most of these birds the mckays buntings fly to mainland alaska in the winter and return to their little islands to breed in summer. So it's not like they're isolated by an inability to fly long distances. Researchers have suggested that mackay's buntings maintain their genetic distinctiveness from snow buntings their closest relatives because the two species breed at different times even where their ranges overlap. We don't know a whole lot about the biology or the behavior of mckay's bunting but it does have one other claim to fame no other north. American songbird has plumage. That's as white as that of the male mckay's bunting it looks like a snowball magically came to life and started flitting around eating seeds and causing mischief. The field like this bird needs a cooler name but the name snow-bunting is already taken. And maybe you've heard of the movement to get rid of honorific bird names. You know birds named after some dude. So instead of mckay's bunting maybe we could go with bleached bunting or blizzard bunting or mcflurry bunting. I don't know something like that. As for the snow. Bunting that species gives us an example of another pattern..

If i can make a bad pun so well that's right and a lot of people that the first lock to cruise and when they do that crews they are blown away. I've had so many people come in and say wow. I had no idea how amazing i was. But now i looked at a map and i feel like that was the starter. Kit does really actually see in alaska that because there's just so much more to go see an experience and like you said authentic when you get on the land and kind of really meet the people. That's that people say that people here are so friendly and he. I think it says we don't have i always kid can grew up here. Is that. There's not a lot of our population is under a thousand for all those plants. We know new people are here. They have an anti go.

The most prominent of these suggested j. edgar hoover had a bomb placed on the plane to silence. Boggs who some suspected wanted to reopen the kennedy assassination investigation for proponents of the alaska triangle theory. This is the most famous case to support their beliefs. Alaska has some of the most intimidating terrain andrew geography on the planet huge mountains covered by glaciers pockmark with deep crevasses and canyons descended too heavily forested slopes and these in turn plunged into the north pacific ocean. Couple this daunting landscape with challenging weather conditions. And you can understand how and why small planes disappear in the forty ninth state. Planes started vanishing in alaska as soon as humans began to fly them here. Sometimes hikers find wreckage from down plane decades after it disappeared or a fisherman spot to seek cushion washed onto the shore hinting to the final resting spot of the aircraft other times. Though as in the case of the bogs baggage flight searchers never find a scrap of material or mental and the fate of the plane and its occupants remains.
