    Alaska Dispatch ^ | 11-4-10 | Jill Burke
    Here’s a quick round up of the latest developments regarding Joe Miller’s take on the uncomfortable wait for a decisive winner in the race for Alaska’s U.S. Senate seat. The website is reporting that Miller, in a conference call with bloggers Thursday morning, is imputing the loyalties of the state’s top elections official. It quotes Miller: There are a number of fights that are going to have to be undertaken, in part, due to the fact that the division of elections (is) headed up by the lieutenant governor. The lieutenant governor is effectively the same [as] what you might...

    In another boon for Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, write-in ballots cast for Republican candidate Joe Miller won’t count toward his total vote count. Alaska’s Lt. Gov. Craig Campbell, who oversees elections, told the Associated Press that write-in ballots for Miller will be tossed out.

    News staff from the CBS affiliate KTVA in Anchorage inadvertently left a message on the cell phone of Joe Miller’s campaign spokesperson yesterday. Nick McDermott, the KTVA assignment editor, had just ended a phone call with Miller’s spokesperson but missed the ‘end call’ button on his iPhone. The conversation between McDermott, and those who are assumed to be other KTVA staff, goes on for about one minutes and 15 seconds. The audio and transcript are below. They seem to conspire to create stories that will harm the election efforts of Miller including looking for registered sex offenders and child molesters...
  • Republicans Deny Giving Up Hope on Miller (if Miller loses its on the NRSC and RINO senators)

    10/31/2010 4:07:40 PM PDT · by teg_76 · 30 replies
    Republicans stood by Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller Sunday, denying a claim that the party had given up hope that he can beat write-in candidate Lisa Murkowski, as polls show the GOP nominee slipping. Murkowski, the incumbent senator, launched a write-in campaign after losing to Miller in the Republican primary. Such campaigns are rarely successful in part because the names of write-in candidates do not show up on the ballot -- the state Supreme Court ruled Friday, though, that the write-in list could be provided in limited cases on Election Day.

    This is shocking, but it won't make frontpage news anywhere because big media is the problem. For those diehards and numbskulls who still take the mainstream media at their word, shame on you. If this is not the final nail in the coffin, I don't know what would be. What is so unnerving about the following exchange is the casual, matter-of-fact tone of this obvious debased standard operating procedure. Look, we know the media, CBS, NBC, ABC, and the pathetic cable news channels are in the tank for the leftists, Democrats, socialists, etc. This is not new and goes way...

    Released October 31, 2010: 9:17 a.m. (Alaska Standard Time) A press release issued Saturday October 30, 2010, by the Joe Miller campaign claims that KTVA personnel, "openly discuss creating, if not fabricating, two stories about Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, Joe Miller." KTVA General Manager Jerry Bever says, "It's unfortunate that this recording has happened. It's unfortunate because it does not accurately reflect the journalistic standards of our newsroom and the garbled context will no doubt leave more questions than answers. The Miller campaign's analysis of the recording is incorrect in many material ways ranging from personnel involved in the...

    Regarding today’s inaccurate report from ABC News suggesting that Republican leaders are no longer supporting Joe Miller in Alaska NRSC Executive Director Rob Jesmer said: “While I’m sure ABC News enjoyed leading Politico’s Playbook this morning, it might have been more useful if they had actually taken a moment to contact the NRSC before running this inaccurate story. Joe Miller not only has the full support of the NRSC, but he’s actually featured prominently in our TV ad which is running still today statewide in Alaska.” In addition, NRSC Chairman John Cornyn was asked about this story on ABC’s This...

    Apparently so, via Kyle Hopkins at the Anchorage Daily News: I'm sitting at the Division of Elections office here in Midtown, where more than a dozen people have filed this afternoon to run as write-in candidates for U.S. Senate. KFQD 750 AM radio host Dan Fagan, a backer of Republican nominee Joe Miller, has been urging voters to sign up in an act of "civil disobedience" -- defying what he calls the courts' illegal decision to allow a list of write-in candidates at polling places. The ruling is expected to aid Sen. Lisa Murkowski's write-in bid. The idea of the...

    Redstate ^ | 10/28/2010 | Neil Stevens
    Continuing Politico’s apparent strategy of linking to obscure polls that say bad things about Republicans for shock and traffic value in this wave year, the site now reports Joe Miller to be in last place. For several reasons, one has to discount this poll’s predictiveness of the coming election. First off, according to Politico, the poll was commissioned by a Democrat-friendly site The Mudflats (which is apparently inaccessible at present due to attention drawn by Politico). Without seeing the details of question order, rotation, and other details so often not reported in the poll-ignorant press, we can’t even guess what...

    You have to hand it to Alaska politics. Nowhere else in the world can make such an issue out of online opinion polls or jackets... After being an outside observer of this stuff for well over two years, I think I have a pretty good grasp on how this works. Conservative opposition (be they sponsored by the DNC or by VECO) use a willing media to hype up some supposed big scandal involving use of the court system to build said hype around, then release of targeted documents in order to build the perception of impropriety. Such was the case...

    Is this it? Rostad said he received the phone call from Miller's father after Kodiak Republicans asked him to find out what happened at the Fairbanks borough. Rostad forwarded the results of the conversation to a number of Republicans in an e-mail sent Thursday night. Rostad wrote in the e-mail that Rex Miller told him there was a poll being conducted as part of the effort to oust Ruedrich as state Republican Party chairman. Here's how Rex Miller described what happened, according to Rostad's e-mail: "One noon hour, on his own time at the borough, Joe participated in an online...

    These people are shameless… An Alaskan judge who was appointed by Senator Lisa Murkowski’s father ruled today that personal information from conservative Joe Miller’s past must be released to the public. The Anchorage Daily News reported: A judge ruled today that the Fairbanks North Star Borough must release personnel records of Senate candidate Joe Miller. In an unusual Saturday hearing, retired Superior Court Judge Winston Burbank ruled that the public’s right to know about candidates outweighed Miller’s right to privacy. “I hold that although Mr. Miller has a legitimate expectation of privacy in those documents, Mr. Miller’s right to privacy...

    ~ EXCERPT ~ FAIRBANKS -- A judge ruled today that the Fairbanks North Star Borough must release personnel records of Senate candidate Joe Miller. In an unusual Saturday hearing, retired Superior Court Judge Winston Burbank ruled that the public's right to know about candidates outweighed Miller's right to privacy. Burbank ordered no release until at least Tuesday, however, to allow Miller to appeal the decision to the Alaska Supreme Court. Some of the documents will be redacted, he said. The case was brought by a group of Alaska news media organizations, who have been trying since summer to see borough...

In the meantime, here's the story written by an Alaskan pub, they make the lamestream, look like the deaf, dumb and blind, as well as, lame media imo. AST stands for Alaskans Standing Together - not quite, frankly. The money fight in the U.S. Senate race took another turn Wednesday, with Republican Joe Miller filing a complaint with the Federal Election Commission over an independent political action committee that's backing Sen. Lisa Murkowski's write-in bid. In his complaint, Miller argues that several of the Native regional corporations that have donated...

    Anchorage municipal prosecutor Albert Patterson has decided not to file charges against Alaska Dispatch editor Tony Hopfinger or the security guards hired by the Miller campaign. “After careful review by the Municipal Prosecutor’s office of witness statements, police reports, and other materials relating to this incident, it has been determined that no criminal charges will be filed against any party,” said Patterson in a statement. Hopfinger had been handcuffed to a chair by security guards on Saturday afternoon, following a town hall meeting held by Republican senate candidate Joe Miller. Hopfinger had tried to question Miller, and had also shoved...

    The Miller campaign has released the following statement in response to these stories from the Anchorage Daily News and the Alaska Dispatch: While I've gotten used to the blog Alaska Dispatch's assault on me and my family, I never thought that it would lead to a physical assault. It's too bad that this blogger would take advantage of a "Town Hall" meeting to create a publicity stunt just two weeks before the election." The Miller campaign was required by the facility to provide security at the event. Even though Joe had spent more than 40 minutes answering questions from those...

Chivers traces the origins of modern assault rifles—particularly Avtomat Kalashnikov 47, or the AK-47—and analyzes how they've changed warfare. Popular Mechanics spoke to the author about how and why the AK-47 was developed and why it has had even more of an impact than nuclear weapons.

USA Senator Lisa Murkowski, (R/AK), how many times do both people and political parties in your home state have to say, even to the point of SCREAMING, the word “NO”? Could it be because the people in Alaska chose a better candidate in that of Joe Miller? Or is it because you LOVE both POWER and the PERKS of Washington D.C. life? Well Sen. Murkowski, and BTW, this applies to all the politicos who have in D.C. LONG ENOUGH, be they Democrats or RINOS, such...

    It took Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, five attempts to pass the Alaska Bar Exam, a piece of her biography that has gone unreported until now, when she faces a long-shot write-in bid for another term in her Senate seat. Murkowski, who graduated in 1985 from Willamette University's College of Law in Oregon, wasn't admitted to the Alaska Bar until November 1987. She flunked the exam in July 1985, February 1986, July 1986 and again in February 1987. She passed on her fifth try in July 1987. Murkowski said that although her failures on the exam aren't something she talks about...

    More than 200 conservative bloggers who convened in Austin, Texas for the second annual 'Red State Gathering' on Saturday may have come close to eavesdropping on a conference with lobbyists that was supposed to be held by Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska). On Friday night, Murkowski (recently defeated in the GOP primary by Joe Miller) announced she would launch a write-in campaign. The purpose of the conference call was for the incumbent senator to get lobbyists on board with her risky campaign. Organizers of the RedState Gathering were hoping to broadcast Murkowski's comments to lobbyists over loudspeakers inside the Sheraton Austin...
