  • Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski files for re-election

    11/07/2015 8:48:38 AM PST · by cotton1706 · 44 replies ^ | 11/6/15 | Eric Ruble
    ANCHORAGE – Sen. Lisa Murkowski is running for reelection in 2016 to seek a third full term as Alaska’s senior senator. She made the official announcement at the Williwaw restaurant in downtown Anchorage Friday. “We’ve got a year in front of us, and I don’t take anything for granted,” Murkowski said. During the last election, Murkowski lost the Republican primary to Joe Miller, but ultimately succeeded in the general election through a write-in campaign. On Friday, the senator said this time, she’s doing it “the old-fashioned way.” At least 100 supporters gathered at Williwaw for the announcement. “She does for...

    A series of events that has been described as a troubling turn has been found to have taken place at the U.S. Supreme Court regarding the justices looming decision on marriage whether they will affirm the millennia old standard of one man and one woman or whether they will create a right to homosexual marriage. The circumstances concern efforts to have Ruth Ginsburg and Elena Kagan recused from the marriage case because they both have taken public advocacy positions for same-sex marriage by performing those ceremonies even while the case was pending before the justices.

    English MP (Member of Parliament) Daniel Hannan, famous for his speech the devalued Prime Minister of a devalued government, is no stranger to controversy. As a member of the European Conservatives and Reformist Group, he often says things that runs against the grain of prevailing sentiment in elitist circles. In this speech, posted on December 9th of this year, Hannan sets out to prove how the infamous German fuhrer Adolf Hitler was not a man of the right, but a different type of socialist. Mr Hannan opens, Ladies and gentleman, who said this? I am a socialist. And a very...

    Last night in Alaska, the choice of both establishment Republican Karl Rove and the free-market Club for Growth won over a tea-party-backed candidate but not by much. With that result comes some lessons for the future about Democratic interference in GOP primaries. The race against Democratic senator Mark Begich this fall will be close and very hard fought and could determine overall control of the Senate. Millers grassroots support gave him a late surge against Sullivan. But one of the biggest drags on the frontrunner was a series of brutal TV ad attacks against him by Put Alaska...

The former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential nominee announced her support Friday in a written statement, provided to Fox News.

Hes still partying like there is more than a month to go before Republicans decide Aug. 19 who will run against Sen. Mark Begich (D) in November.

    In 2010, Fairbanks attorney and Tea Party firebrand Joe Miller pulled off one of the biggest upsets in recent political history by defeating Alaskas incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the Republican primary. Perhaps just as surprisingly, Murkowski was able to hold onto her seat less than three months later when she won a general election write-in campaign, taking advantage of Millers growing reputation as a loose cannon to defeat him and a Democratic challenger. Four years later, Miller is again a candidate in the GOP Senate primary (set for Aug. 19), this time vying for the right to take on...

    This week, the Bureau of Land Management has been attempting to confiscate the cattle of Cliven Bundy, the last rancher in Nevada’s Clark County. On Wednesday, BLM agents confronted the Bundy family and supporters, using attack dogs, tasers and stun guns. Bundy’s son was tased and his daughter thrown to the ground. Three others were injured. Bundy supporters eventually drove the BLM off, but not before they had taken some cattle. The BLM claims the cattle are “tresspassing” on land designated for the endangered desert tortoise. This designation is a red flag that something else is going on. Desert tortoises...

    Dear Friend of Liberty, Obama acolyte Mark Begich needs to go. It's time for a senator from Alaska who will provide proper oversight and stand up to the abuses of Washington. The Obama Administration is simply out of control. The spectacle we are watching in Nevada with the Bureau of Land Management's land grab and cattle round up is, sadly, unsurprising. The BLM's insistence upon driving ranchers off the land their family has inhabited for the last 140 years, just so the EPA can save a supposedly endangered turtle, is almost as brilliant as sending SWAT teams to invade small...

    The conservative group Club for Growth has changed gears and is supporting establishment GOP candidates in primaries. Launched a decade before the tea party made life difficult for moderate Republicans, the club quickly rose to the political forefront while supporting challengers to incumbent Republicans who it felt were not conservative enough, according to the National Journal. In 2012, the fiscally conservative organization backed tea party candidate Richard Mourdocks challenge to Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar and vilified veteran Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch for his voting record. The group also targeted 10 moderate House Republicans. But the political action committee has suddenly...

    An Alaska judge on Friday ordered that failed U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller pay more than $17,300 in legal costs incurred by the state in fighting Miller's challenge to last year's election. But Judge William Carey said Miller won't have to pay legal bills for his rival, Sen. Lisa Murkowski. In state court, when no money is at issue in the litigation, winning parties can seek up to 20 percent of their attorney fees. For the state, in this instance, that came to $17,373.85. Carey said Murkowski, who intervened in the case, was not a prevailing party. Attorneys for all...

Because a federal judge saw a clear set of facts raising serious questions about the election, stepped in and blocked certification.

During the Palin administration, TransCanada and Exxon formed an alliance to build a natural gas pipeline from Alaska to the Lower 48. Under Governor Palins governance, the project was expanded and revised from what previous governors had proposed with an open policy process for the Alaskan people. More progress was made on this effort than in the previous 30 years. This is the largest private sector infrastructure project in North American history and...

    Yesterday, once the write-in votes had been counted, it would seem to the causal reader that Murkowski has won. But did she? Here is part of an e-mail that was sent by Bill, an observer for the Miller campaign. the title of the pictures speak for themselves. in the Penny Mayo picture, it shows an X over Lisa's filled in oval, and this was counted for Lisa. I personally witnessed a case where Joe's oval was filled in, with an X over it, and Lisa filled in too. She called it for Lisa, the logic being, "the other ovals were...
  • Vile Huffington Post Puts Brisol & Willow Palins Private Facebook Comments Online

    This is breaking on Huffington Post. I looked at the comments and don't believe Palins kids said these things. The comments are private on facebook with Palins kids. Bristol supposedly commented on a comment from one of Willows classmate who posted on Facebook that Sarah Palins Alaska would fail. Willow then chimed in and called the guy a faggot and then went on a tirade back and forth as other people joined in the argument slandering Sarah and bringing up the Nailin Palin porn video and also calling Bristol fat. Again I personally believe all this Facebook page is fabricated...

    As the number of ballots left to count dwindles toward zero, staffers for U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski's historic write-in campaign are looking forward to the moment they can declare victory over Joe Miller. "By the end of the day today anyone with simple arithmetic skills can draw some conclusions," said Murkowski campaign manager Kevin Sweeney. "By the end of the day tomorrow the count will actually be done so the campaign can make a declaration." The Miller campaign continues to insist that the race is "far from over." In a Tuesday morning press release Miller spokesman Randy DeSoto compared the...
  • Murkowski Pulls Ahead in Vote Count As Division of Elections Ignores Law

    Princess Lisa now leads by about 1,700 votes after Monday's review. There are still about 8,000 write-in ballots and 600 absentees to be counted. It's not looking good given that the Division of Elections is counting 97% of the write-ins for Murkowski, despite the fact that thousands of the ballots do not spell her name correctly, a requirement in the actual law. Via the Anchorage Daily News: The Division of Elections has now counted 92,164 votes for Murkowski and 90,458 for Miller. Murkowski's number will grow as the state continues to go through write-in ballots today, looking to see what...

    Sarah Palin, the biggest loser. That seems to be the consensus of the grandees inhabiting Washington and New York and pockets of glitter beyond. There is a variety of interpretations of the midterm Republican wave emanating from the wine bars of upper Manhattan and the salons of Georgetown, but most include the notion that for Sarah Palin, this election was the political equivalent of the hit ABC show "The Biggest Loser." When push came to shove, she stood on...principle? Media and political elites may disagree on the many consequences of what the president called a "shellacking" by the voters, but...

    Politico ^ | 11/15/2010 | SHIRA TOEPLITZ
    With the vast majority of write-in ballots counted, both Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Republican Joe Miller looked to Monday when election officials will begin counting thousands of absentee ballots as a key day in their U.S. Senate race. After about 5,000 write-in ballots were counted Sunday, Murkowski kept up her success rate of winning about 89 percent of the write-in votes outright, plus an additional 8 percent of write-in votes that were challenged but still counted for the senator anyway. However, officials still have to count about 40,000 absentee ballots this week, according to the Alaska Division...

    Incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski is closing in on the total number of votes cast for Joe Miller on Election Day. While it's believed the lion's share of votes for write-in candidates will go to Murkowski -- a suspicion the ongoing count has thus far proved -- the ballots must be looked at and assessed to know for sure. But with 84 percent of the more than 98,000 write-in ballots cast on election night already evaluated, Murkowski appears to be within striking distance of a win. --snip-- But -- and there are always "buts" -- there are still thousands other votes...
  • Vanity: Obama Signals Not To Extend Bush Tax Cuts. He Does This Then Palin Wins In 2012

    I am appalled watching the news now about the Obama White House signaling that they intend NOT to extend the Bush Tax Cuts that will help small business owners all over the United States so they can stimulate the economy and hire more people. This will be devastating for people all over. It will cause massive bankruptcy in the private and business sector. If they do this then Palin literally will have the ammo to take Obama down and she will have corporate backing from business leaders everywhere that will propel her to the Oval Office. This is a arrogant...
