Pete Rouse’s Alaska Ties (Update)

By Stacy Drake

Barack Obama named Pete Rouse Interim Chief of Staff Friday, after Rahm Emanuel announced he was leaving the administration to run for Mayor of Chicago. During the White House briefing, Jake Tapper from ABC News asked Robert Gibbs a few questions regarding the new chief. Here is a portion of the transcript of the Q & A Tapper posted to ABC’s website:

TAPPER: And then on Pete Rouse, I wonder if first of all if you could talk about his — or explain why he’s a registered voter in Alaska.

GIBBS: He’s not.

TAPPER: He’s not a registered voter…

GIBBS: No. He’s a registered voter in the District of Columbia.

TAPPER: He did vote absentee ballot in — in Alaska in 2008.

GIBBS: I — I can check on that. I know — I was talking to Pete yesterday. He voted, I think — I don’t know who, but — who he voted for, but he voted in the mayor’s race here.

TAPPER: OK. And Governor Palin, former Governor Palin has insinuated that Rouse — she suspected Rouse was part of a plot against her. She wrote about this in her book. She’s tweeted about it — tweeted suggestions about this recently. I was just wondering if you guys have any comment on that.

GIBBS: No. I mean, you know, it — it’s a fairly silly accusation that is baseless.

TAPPER: So he has — he had nothing to do with any of the attacks against…

GIBBS: No.

TAPPER: OK. Thank you.

Clearly Gibbs was trying to shrug off Jake Tapper’s questions regarding the matter. Questions originally brought up by Governor Palin in her book and on Twitter. While Gibbs may try to brush off her ‘accusations’ as “silly” and “baseless,” a quick study of Rouse’s links to Alaska will tell you that they are actually quite sensible. Considering Rouse’s position then and now, is it irrational to consider that Rouse had something to do with certain attacks against the governor when he happened to know many of the key players involved? Is it out of the question to bring to light the fact that many of these occurrences happened at opportune times for the Obama campaign? In another time and place, I may wonder why this hasn’t been investigated by more members of the press. However, it’s the modern day and age, so I already know the answer to that.

Supporters of Governor Palin are well aware of Kim Elton, from “Tasergate” fame. Personally, I feel Ace best painted an accurate picture of Elton when he said the following:

Sen. Elton is known for one thing and one thing only. He led the Democratic assault on Governor Sarah Palin for the “Troopergate” scandal that wasn’t.

You remember “Troopergate”. Governor Palin spent the summer of the election campaign fighting unfounded charges that she had exceeded her authority by firing a renegade, tazer-happy State Trooper. Ultimately she was cleared of any wrongdoing.

The Alaska Daily News posted a story on February 21st 2009 titled, “Senior Obama adviser has Alaska roots.” The piece describes Pete Rouse’s relationship with Kim Elton (emphasis mine):

One of Rouse’s best friends in Alaska is state Sen. Kim Elton, D-Juneau. Rouse was the one who recruited Elton, a former journalist, into politics to work for Miller. Elton said Rouse is always eager for e-mailed photos of Romeo, the black wolf often photographed around Juneau.

Elton said he followed the presidential race through Rouse, backing Obama early on the strength of his friend’s endorsement. But he told Rouse he couldn’t talk about Palin once she was named to the Republican ticket. As chairman of the Legislative Council, Elton played a central role in the Legislature’s “Troopergate” investigation of the governor, which Republicans complained was being run by Obama supporters.

“It was awkward, because I usually love to talk about things like that,” Elton said

I’m sure he abstained from commenting about the matter with a key adviser to Obama, who also just so happened to be one of his “best friends.” Politicians are usually known for keeping their word and their trustworthy nature, right? Elton was willing to fork over $2,250 to the Obama campaign, but he wouldn’t mention the investigation he was in charge of conducting against their political rival. Call it deductive reasoning if you like, but I have a hard time buying it.

Shortly after the election in 2008, Kim Elton was given a post in the Obama Administration in the Interior Department. The Juneau Empire reported:

Sen. Kim Elton, who has represented Juneau in the Senate, House and Assembly for nearly two decades, has accepted a position in the administration of President Barack Obama. The 60-year-old legislator will now be dealing with Alaska issues in the Department of Interior.

[…]

Elton, a prominent Obama supporter in Juneau, was named chairman of a committee that investigated Palin’s firing of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan last summer. That position was later engulfed in controversy after Palin was nominated to be Sen. John McCain’s running mate in the presidential election. Palin then abandoned her pledge to cooperate with the investigation and many Republican lawmakers argued partisan politics were at work.

Pete Rouse also has a connection to former Alaska Governor, Democrat Tony Knowles. One of the men Governor Palin beat in 2006 to become Alaska’s youngest and first female governor. In 2004, Rouse worked on Knowles unsuccessful Senate campaign.

In 2008, after John McCain selected Governor Palin to be his running mate, the Obama campaign set up a political hit-team called “Alaskan Mythbusters.” The group was headed up by Rouse associate, Tony Knowles. The “Mythbusters” had the ironic task of creating misleading political attacks, specifically on Governor Palin. They also spent a lot of time talking about Kim Elton’s “ethics” investigation.

While all of this information is circumstantial, it makes sense that Obama’s Deputy Campaign Manager in 2008, the person in charge of coordinating aspects of their game-plan would contact people he already knew. It certainly isn’t “silly” for Governor Palin to point out that Rouse has ties to Alaska. As far as he being at the center of some plot… After the level of attacks she has endured from her political foes, what would you think if you were in her shoes?

Update: My friend Gary pointed out to me that the quote I posted here from Ace could be interpreted to mean that Governor Palin fired Michael Wooten. I took it to mean all charges were “unfounded” but I don’t want anyone to be confused about the matter. She did not fire Wooten. The actual charge was that she “abused her power.” A charge she was later cleared of any wrong doing in. The lefts politically motivated charge was that she tried to pressure Walt Monegan to fire the abusive, law-breaking trooper, and when he didn’t she fired him. She never fired Monegan and there were other factors playing a role when she instead, tried to re-assign him.

Nonetheless, It’s pretty clear the details of this story were obscured by the left and some in the media throughout the campaign and even after it had been proven that Governor Palin did nothing wrong.

Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia Is On The Run And Angry The Spotlight Is On Them UPDATED

UPDATE

****Here’s the video Jeanne Devon, one of Barack Obama’s hand picked Alaska thug bloggers tried to have banned:

The past week has been truly incredible and truly busy. So busy in fact, this is the first time I have stopped long enough to actually write about how incredible things have been and what has been going on.

Most know that our group has been writing about the democrat/communist party operatives in Alaska, their attempts at destroying Sarah Palin by continually filing bogus ethics complaints, and then illegally publicizing them.

If you don’t know, it’s illegal to disclose any information about an ongoing ethics investigation. Oddly enough, under the law, if you do this to a legislator, the complaint is thrown out and not considered. For some reason, even though it is still illegal, there is no punishment, and the complaint still stands if you do it to the Governor. How convenient.

Anyway, even though this stuff has been out there, and anyone who cares knows the names of Jeanne Devon, Linda Kellen Biegel, Shannyn Moore, Amanda Coyne, Sondra Tompkins, and Zane Henning just to name a few, no one was prepared for what has happened.

Naked Emperor News, a website that does video journalism, turned all of these Alaskan democrat/communist’s little world upside down when they released a great video, with all of the players in their own words together.

Again, we all know that Barack Obama has great ties to all of this. Obama’s then campaign chief of staff, now White House advisor, Pete Rouse, is an Alaskan. He is also great friends with former Alaska State Senator Kim Elton. I’ll get to the reason why he’s a former Senator in a second. But those two go way back having worked together on a former Alaska Lt Governor’s staff. Rouse still votes absentee in Alaska.

Everyone has heard of “Troopergate” the phony investigation, really a witch hunt, cooked up by the Alaska democrat/communist party with the help of Barack Obama. At the time CNN and others reported that Obama had been in talks with the troopers union over this. But no one seemed to care enough to stay on that story. Too busy dealing with thrills up their legs I guess.

What happened next was a conspiracy to try and harm Sarah Palin. Their hope was impeachment.

Of course, they failed, but just days before the November presidential election, Senator Kim Elton, who was ramrodding this deal, promised that Sarah Palin was going down. In the end, Sarah Palin was cleared from any wrong doing after the state personnel board reviewed the bogus Branchflower report cooked up by Steven Branchflower and Kim Elton. They slammed Branchflower’s investigation and declared Palin completely innocent.

But, the damage was done, and in pure Chicago pay-for-play thug politics, Barack Obama, upon taking office, gave Kim Elton a make work job in the Department of Interior. You can read more here.

The Naked Emperor News covers all of this, as well as the deliberate and coordinated attacks on Sarah Palin by the Alaskan democrat/communist bloggers and those filing the complaints. They even dug up audio of a radio interview where a bunch of them called in to talk about it. Of course, the bloggers still claim no collusion.

Now just like cockroaches scatter when you turn the lights on, these losers have went into panic mode. Jeanne Devon who is shown on the video several times, has, along with others, been trying as hard as possible to ban this video. She has been going after it on You Tube and elsewhere. She claims “copyright violations.”

Yeah, OK.

This is where the efforts of a dedicated group of patriots come in. They’ve all worked endlessly to make this video go viral. This video is now everywhere including international websites. I want to give a big shout out to Bob Parks who writes for the Canada Free Press and was kind enough to host the video as well as give Jeanne Devon a bit of schooling on copyright law. You can see the video here.

Now for those that don’t know, Jeanne Devon, a shopkeeper in Anchorage, is the type of person we usually describe with a word that starts with chicken but has a few more letters to it. Rather than blog out in the open,, she cries for people like Sarah Palin to be “open and transparent”, while she uses an alias. Devon, who writes for her own hate website, Mudflats, as well as the vile Huffington Post as AKMuckraker, is such a nasty woman that a Democrat legislator Mike Doogan, had enough of her and outed her to the world!

So she is going stark raving mad at this point, as is her partner in crime Linda Kellen Biegel.

So it came as no surprise this weekend when CNN employee Dennis Zaki came out with the wild story that Sarah Palin was divorcing Todd and moving to Montana. Of course, this was an out and out lie, but certainly what one expects anytime a democrat/communist opens it’s mouth, especially when they are talking about Sarah Palin!

This was an obvious, deliberate, and coordinated effort to “punish” Sarah Palin because American patriots have had enough of these vile and hateful members of the Alaska Mafia and have started fighting back.. The divorce lie was payback because the light has been shone on these losers.

Well, this started a chain reaction none of the Alaska Mafia wanted to see, I can promise you!

First to weigh in was super blogger and author Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugs) who decided to turn the table on Barack Obama. Kind of a sorta Chicago deal. You pull out a knife, we’ll pull out an Abrams tank!

Of course, as always, Sarah herself put this stupidity to bed with this fantastic quote:

“Divorce Todd? Have you SEEN Todd? I may be just a renegade hockey mom, but I’m not blind!” __Sarah Palin

But the conservative bloggers weren’t done. You see everyone knows that Dennis Zaki a stringer for CNN is a known and provable liar. But where was this really coming from?

Well Zaki’s source is another one of the democrat/communist bloggers who is tied into Barack Obama’s Alaska Mafia. This loser, who writes as Gryphen, has a blog called the Immoral Minority. Perfect name for a democrat/communist blog, don’t ya think?

Anyway, journalist Robert Stacy McCain was the recipient of some interesting information.

Gryphen is actually Jesse Griffin, a divorced 48 year old part time kindergarten teacher at Trailside Elementary in Anchorage. My first question is what sort of 48 year old man works part time at a kindergarten? Jesse Griffin’s only other effort seems to be spending time with his pal CNN employee Dennis Zaki making up insane stories about Sarah Palin!

You see, Jesse Griffin, who started the lie about Sarah getting divorced, is also the one who started the lie that Sarah’s youngest child, Trig, was actually Bristol’s.

Griffin is also the one behind the lie that Sarah Palin was under indictment by the FBI, which is why she was stepping down. This of course prompted the FBI to do something it rarely does, and publicly announce that, no, Sarah Palin wasn’t under any sort of investigation of any kind.

Griffin’s Immoral Minority is aligned with the other Alaska democrat/communist blogs that kept saying there was a big “iceberg” coming for Sarah Palin, and of course, all of these hate bloggers, especially Shannyn Moore and Jeanne Devon, who write for the Huffington Post, trumpeted this bogus FBI story as the iceberg.

You can read more of Robert Stacy McCain’s report on Jesse Griffin here.

McCain dug up some incredibly disturbing quotes from Jesse Griffin. Very vile and very troubling. If I had kids over at Trailside Elementary, I’d be concerned, especially if they were in kindergarten. This cat is certifiable!

The folks over at Flopping Aces have some interesting things to say as well.

Sarah Palin’s attorney is now involved in this deal.

OK, but you ask why bring Barack Obama into all of this, isn’t he self destructing well enough with any help? Well, yes he is. But the ties are so deep to this it just makes me mad. They wanted to impeach Richard Nixon for a lot less.

Barack Obama has ties to Alaskan’s For Truth as well as the Wasilla Project and Mythbusters. And with his man Pete Rouse’s lifelong ties to Alaska, it’s just not much of a leap to understand this deliberate and coordinated effort to destroy Sarah Palin all leads to an office somewhere at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.

Case in point. Remember a week or so ago when it was illegally leaked that Sarah Palin’s Alaska Trust Fund, her legal defense fund was itself illegal?

This is typical for the Alaska Mafia. They have filed over 20 bogus ethics complains, cost the state of Alaska at minimum $2 million tax payer dollars, basically stealing $2 mil, as well as cost Sarah herself over a half million personally. So what did they do? They filed an idiotic ethics complaint saying, basically, she didn’t have a right to raise money to defend herself!

Now this complaint has not been resolved. It’s still under “investigation.” Cue up the possible Obama plant. I say possible, because I honestly can’t say for sure. But bear with me on this. I promise not to disappoint.

You see, the guy who leaked the information claiming Sarah Palin was “guilty” was the so-called “independent investigator” hired by the state to investigate Sarah Palin!

How convenient!

This “independent investigator,” Thomas Daniel, has a day job, of course. Thomas Daniel works for Perkins-Coie. Perkins-Coie is the law firm Barack Obama uses to represent him.

Oh my.

Obama has spent almost $700,000 with the law firm this year as they, among other things, represent Obama in those dozens of law suits out there challenging his eligibility to be President.

Josh Painter put a great piece together on this that you can read here.

Also it’s reported that Perkin-Coie is the go to law firm for the democrat/communist party when they want to steal elections and manufacture votes.

Ahh, the circle of life.

So let me think….

The “independent investigator,” Thomas Daniel, knowingly committed a crime and leaked a story, a lie actually, to a reporter. And this “independent investigator,” Thomas Daniel; just happens to work at the same law firm the represents Barack Obama. What could possibly be wrong here?

Look, the democrat/communists want to destroy Sarah Palin. Heck, even some of the good old boy Republican losers want to stop her. The fear from both groups is palpable.

Sarah Palin is a true American patriot. This is a woman that has taken on corruption and stopped it cold. And frankly, she didn’t care that a lot of those who were corrupt were life time establishment Republicans. In fact, it seemed to delight her.

Sarah Palin strikes fear in all of the NYC/DC Beltway hacks. They know when she gets going she will destroy their little gravy train, their little fiefdoms. Sarah Palin represents anything but business as usual in politics.

Now for the democrat/communists, she is particularly dangerous. As Barack Obama and his Congress try to pass insane tax schemes like cap and tax, and destroy all freedom and liberty with this massive health care gambit, which is nothing less than and end run around the Constitution, a total usurpation, really, Sarah Palin stands there saying: “No!”

No one can draw a crowd like Sarah Palin, and unlike Mr Hopey Changey, when Sarah Palin speaks, she captivates the crowd with substance. Sarah talks about things that matter to Americans. But Sarah also talks about something else, the American Spirit.

Unlike Barack Obama and all of the democrat/communists who constantly run America down, Sarah Palin constantly speaks to America’s greatness. To Barack Obama, America’s greatest days have come and gone. But to Sarah Palin, America is that “shining city on a hill” that our great Ronald Reagan always spoke of.

Obama and the democrat/communists never miss a chance to disrespect our fine military. Sarah Palin never misses a chance to praise our wonderful service men and women, and remind Americans that the military has been fighting and dying for the them, and their liberty and freedom, for over two centuries. In fact, our brave troops volunteer to do this. They put their lives on the line for us daily. Sarah Palin’s son is serving, as well.

Basically, Sarah Palin represents real hope, and real change. She is a street fighter. A savvy woman who gets things done, a concept foreign in DC.

So, the enemy must destroy her!

Who is the enemy?

Well, it’s Barack Obama, and the democrat/communist party, for sure. They are destroying America, and usurping the Constitution, but they aren’t the only problem. They are also a lot of Republicans who have gotten fat and lazy in DC, and are not working for their employers, the American people.

So what can you do?

Well, I can state the obvious, which is to get behind Sarah Palin 100 percent!

Support Sarah through SarahPAC and the Alaska Trust Fund. You can also stand up and say, “No more!” every time some nut job makes up lies about her, or attacks her in any way.

But there is a lot more to it. You must get off the couch and get into the game. You must stand up to Barack Obama and the rest of the democrat/communists. You need to educate yourselves on all of the issues and speak up. Stop being comfortable, start being active. Your very liberty and freedom is at stake.

Go to tea parties, attend these townhalls that the politicians are setting up. Scream at them and tell them to get right, or else!

Grab all of your friends, especially those who say “I don’t do politics.” It’s up to you to make them understand that if they want liberty and freedom, they sure as hell better start “doing politics!”

Get out and support conservative candidates nationwide. 2010 counts, and will be the most important election in a century. If we can’t take Congress back with a solid conservative majority, and stop the march toward full absolute communist rule, we will no longer be a free nation, and liberty will be but a fleeting dream.

Sarah Palin is a true transformative figure in America, and a great lady, but even she can’t do this alone!
