Russia takes back Alaska

By Marion Algier – Palin-Cruz 2016  –  AskMarion

Pretty funny and certainly makes the point that what Governor and Former Republican VP Candidate, Sarah Palin says gets notice!  And more and more of what she has said, and was once dismissed for by the Progressive government controlled mainstream media, was and is absolutely right on and true!  As did Palin’s prediction that Russia would invade the Ukriane if Obama were elected, that prompted Tina Fey’s whole… I can see “Alaska from my house” skit as well as this April Fool’s prank.

Not An April Fools‘ Joke: Russians Petition To Get Alaska Back

On the March 23 episode of BBC One’s “Andrew Marr Talk Show,” Vladimir Chizhov, who is Russia’s ambassador to the EU, also brought up Russia’s historical claim to Alaska to another guest that day, U.S. Sen. John …

 April Fools…

One of the greatest April fool’s pranks EVER, orchestrated by Porky Bickar, happened in Alaska:

From the Top 100 April Fool’s Day Hoaxes of All Time in which Porky’s prank was #16:

1974: Residents of Sitka, Alaska were alarmed when the long-dormant volcano neighboring them, Mount Edgecumbe, suddenly began to belch out billows of black smoke. People spilled out of their homes onto the streets to gaze up at the volcano, terrified that it was active again and might soon erupt. Luckily it turned out that man, not nature, was responsible for the smoke. A local practical joker named Porky Bickar had flown hundreds of old tires into the volcano’s crater and then lit them on fire, all in a (successful) attempt to fool the city dwellers into believing that the volcano was stirring to life. According to local legend, when Mount St. Helens erupted six years later, a Sitka resident wrote to Bickar to tell him, “This time you’ve gone too far!”

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
