MACPHERSONS STAND BY LIBERTY-FIGHTING SENATOR
"Honorable MacPherson family,
From the depths of my heart, I thank the MacPherson Wisemen, who helped formulate a bold response to [the] attack on me. With my deepest appreciation. You were knights in shining armor, in the largest political attack of my life. I will forever appreciate that you stood with me.
Senator Lora Reinbold
Alaska State Legislature"
The MacPherson Group came to the aid of Alaska State Senator Lora Reinbold (R - Eagle River) when the Governor of Alaska came after her for daring to question the narrative behind the state’s COVID-19 emergency orders. Here is an excerpt from the Senator's response letter (full letter linked below):
"By my legitimate inquiries – the responses to which every Alaskan citizen is entitled – you fear possible criticism; but it is the right to petition, and only that right – a right I exercised in its pristine form – that offers a representative, republican form of government the “safety valve” needed whenever free men and women delegate to a few such vast authority to act. For it is the sacred right to petition which guards against political frustrations of natural men and women. This realization is not without historic precedent, for it was within the Declaration of Independence, unanimously adopted in Congress, July 4, 1776, at Philadelphia, that Thomas Jefferson declared:
'In every stage of these oppression's We [the People] have petitioned for redress in the most humble of terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.'
But the right to petition was not formulated by Jefferson, nor anyone within the Colonies, for it was founded upon the oppression's of the freeborn by a tyrant King in England during the 1600s, in the form of that infamous charge: seditious libel."
