Welcome to this week’s edition of The Alaska Stalker, a semi-regular lighthearted round up of the best and worst of Alaska’s social media landscape.
First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump, launched her anti cyber-bullying campaign, Be Best, this week. Here’s a page from the pamphlet.
Someone might want to link the entire pamphlet to Senator Bill Wielechowski who edited his post, visible to friends only, from Facebook the other day. Remember Senator, the internet is forever. Those edits tho…
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Speaking of Kyle Hopkins, the Alaska Stalker is beyond jealous of him and his kiddos this week. As a parent of a little girl who loves books and reading, I cannot believe I missed this!
We all know Senator Lisa Murkowski is an avid reader of The Alaska Landmine. <—— You’re going to want to watch the video below. Trust me. I can only hope that Senator Murkowski will see my column and reward my sick internet burns with a private rendition of “Click, Clack, Moo” someday. #goals
The Alaska Landmine has reached the U.S Senate! Forever part of the record.

An eagle-eyed tipster sent us this gem from F&H Fitness Studio, a new cycle studio in Anchorage. Glad to see Representative Chris Tuck is finally displaying some leadership qualities! Is this THE Chris Tuck? The Alaska Stalker doesn’t know and doesn’t really care. it’s funny either way.
Sandwiched between armed carjacking updates was this. Pretty sure I’m more afraid of walking alone anywhere in Anchorage than I am of the Galactic Empire. Why is APD posing with the bad guys anyway??? Maybe they should replace that emoji with a face palm.
Where were you when you got the news that Russell Crowe’s jock strap had arrived safely to the East Anchorage Blockbuster? Assemblyman Forrest Dunbar was, quote: “Literally judging a Constitutional Law and American History competition at nearby Begich Middle School when I got the news.” Forrest… Let it go!
For all those that believe in 4-D chess. And pizzagate. #Qanon is in Anchorage. The comment section is lit.
A HUGE Alaska Stalker congratulations to candidate for district 22, Sara Rasmussen, for the birth of her perfect baby girl Charlotte. She is adorable, and a real fighter like her mama! A couple tipsters sent me this post, but new moms like Sara get a time out from political nastiness for a couple of weeks.
What I find interesting is that someone took the time to set up a fake Facebook profile just to troll Sara. When I saw “Katherine” only had 15 friends (and one of them was Dustin Darden!) my BS radar kicked into high gear. Who is Katherine Howell? She’s actually this woman, Christina Plerhoples Stacy. Yikes. Going to have to side with Sara on this one. Katherine is fake news. Delete away Sara! How does that Madeline Albright quote go again?
Alaska Celebrity Sightings:
Top AM talk radio personality Dave Stieren posed for a selfie with movie star Sam Jones.
I’d never heard of him (millennial) but I asked around. Well… Dave… I would have never pegged you for a fan of that particular genre. He starred in Flesh Gordon, right?
Social media fail of the week:
Secretary of Energy Rick Perry wrapped up a tour of Alaska’s energy infrastructure with two and a half Alaskan legislators. Word is the other half of Senator Sullivan is somewhere in Ohio. Cropping, you guys. It matters.
Overheard in Alaska:
You have to send in those tips folks!
I mean, has @Climatologist49 ever been to District 15? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
