    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. WND reported just days...

    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...

    Palin backs Tea Party favorite Joe Miller for Alaska GOP Senate nod Published August 15, 2014 Sarah Palin is throwing her support behind Tea Party favorite Joe Miller in the looming Republican primary for the Alaska Senate race. The former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential nominee announced her support Friday in a written statement, provided to Fox News. The statement said: "To restore liberty, to defend our Constitution, to build American exceptionalism, we must send fighters to the U.S. Senate who will stop Barack Obama's fundamental transformation of the nation we love. The status quo has got to go,...

    oe Miller has shown he is the only true conservative in the Alaska United States Senate Republican primary. His opponents are beholden to exactly the people who have brought us the mess we are in; and either one would only make things worse. He can be supported at Joeforliberty.com The primary is August 26, 2014. When the Alaska Family Action debate moderator asked the right questions, Joe Miller had the right answers and his opponents in the Republican U.S. Senate primary did not. Those are the simple facts. On Illegal aliens pouring into our country, Miller explained he is against...

    Someone forgot to tell Joe Miller the partys over, the Alaska GOP Senate primary has already been decided. Miller hasnt noticed the lights are being turned out, the last of the balloons have fallen from the ceiling and the confetti is being swept up. 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. Maybe Miller is just having too much fun picking up endorsements from conservatives who also missed the this partys over email, and poking fun at Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell,...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | July 3, 2014 | Scott Conroy
    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...

    The familiar Washington narrative on the scrum for the U.S. Senate has been rinsed, recycled and delivered once again: Republicans are primed to pick up the six seats necessary to capture control of the upper chamber. The midterm atmosphere sure looks ripe, the polling appears favorable but, as it did in 2010 and 2012, the most competitive batch of races will likely come down to candidate quality. Its the key component that stifled GOP chances before, and could very well again. .... .... A closer look at the most competitive contests demonstrates why a Senate majority in 2014 is again...

    At least one candidate for the U.S. Senate wants to make it known that he stands with Sen. Ted Cruzs effort to defund Obamacare. I fully support any attempt to defund and repeal Obamacare, Lieutenant Gov. Mead Treadwell of Alaska told The Daily Caller Wednesday as Texas Republican Cruz was winding down his 22-hour quasi-filibuster. I applaud Senator Ted Cruz and the principled members of the Senate as they fight for the American people to get rid of Obamacare. When I am elected in November 2014 I will stand and work with Senators like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. Treadwell...

    There's a lingering sense in Alaska that the field of GOP Senate candidates isn't done growing yet. But we won't know for sure until after Labor Day at the very earliest, when the latest potential candidate returns from military deployment to Afghanistan. Alaska Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Dan Sullivan, a Republican, will spend the next six weeks in Afghanistan on military duty, the Associated Press reported Monday night. Sullivan is in the Marine Reserves and deployed to Central Command twice in the last nine years, according to his office biography. Sullivan's most recent assignment means he will be out...

    It looks like its time to stop calling Joe Miller a former Senate candidate. The Alaska conservative activist who lost a 2010 bid for the Senate after besting incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski in a GOP primary, has filed a form indicating he intends to run for Senate again in 2014, according to documentation from the office of the Secretary of the Senate. On May 2, Miller filed a Federal Election Commission Form 2 stating his intent to run for Senate next year. Its a document that any candidate must complete upon receiving more than $5,000 in contributions to a political...

    A new Harper Polling poll shows a plurality of likely Alaskan Republican voters support their former Governor, Sarah Palin, as a U.S. Senate candidate in the 2014 GOP primary over Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and 2010 Senate candidate Joe Miller. The survey of 379 likely Republican voters found that 32 percent support Palin, whereas 30 percent support Treadwell and 14 percent support Miller. The Harper Polling poll, conducted via telephone on May 6 and May 7 on behalf of the Tea Party Leadership Fund, found that 45 percent of likely GOP voters think Palin would fight hardest for conservative values,...

    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...

    Palin, Miller lead tea party assault on Romney (06/02/11 10:23:27) As former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney today officially announced his intention to seek the Republican presidential nomination, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and unsuccessful Alaska U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller countered with jabs suggesting Romney is too much of a moderate to satisfy tea party Republicans. As RealClearPolitics and many other media outlets reported today, Palin -- whose "One Nation" bus tour was in Boston -- took a shot at the Romney-negotiated health care reform program in Massachusetts but denied she was trying to steal the spotlight from Romney, who...

    Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski was the first Senator in more than 50 years to win an election with a write-in campaign (she crushed Tea Partyand Sarah Palin favorite and official GOP nominee Joe Miller with a lead of over 10,000 votes this past November), and has a healthy history of defying the general party line: shes voted in support of the DREAM Act, the repeal of Dont Ask, Dont Tell, a tax-cut compromise, and the START deal. Now shes thrown her support behind Planned Parenthood: I believe Planned Parenthood provides vital services to those in need and disagree with their...
