Donald Trump Vows to Campaign in Alaska Against Lisa Murkowski; Where Murkowski Is in Polls

By Breitbart. Former President Donald Trump said Saturday he would campaign against Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) in 2022 when she is due for reelection.

“I will not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski,” Trump said in a statement Politico first reported.

“She represents her state badly and her country even worse. I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be — in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator,” Trump continued.

Trump also pledged to campaign against Murkowski in a series of tweets in June 2020.

Murkowski was one of seven GOP senators who voted to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial in January and is the only one going up against voters next year. (Read more from “Donald Trump Vows to Campaign in Alaska Against Lisa Murkowski” HERE)

Where Lisa Murkowski Is in Polls as Trump Vows to Campaign Against ‘Disloyal’ GOP Senator

By Newsweek. . .On Saturday, Trump’s team released a recent poll that they commissioned on Murkowski to support their efforts to oust her. Conducted between January 30 and February 1, the McLaughlin and Associates poll found the ex-president’s Alaska favorability rating at 52 percent—nine points higher than Murkowski’s 43 percent.

Murkowski is the 86th most popular Republican in Congress, with 13 percent sharing a positive opinion, 23 percent sharing a negative opinion and 19 percent sharing a neutral opinion of the senator, according to a December 2020 YouGov poll. She is most popular among Millennials and Generation X, and is more popular among men than women.

A publicly funded poll of 1,081 Alaska voters, conducted by Public Policy Polling in June, showed Murkowski with an approval rating of just 29 percent and a disapproval rating of 55 percent. While Trump’s approval rating in the state sat at 46 percent and disapproval rating 49 percent. . .

However in late 2019, Murkowski was voted among the five least popular senators, along with Collins of Maine, who also voted for Trump’s conviction and is considered one of his opponents in the party, according to Morning Consult.

Mike Lindell’s Video “Absolute Proof” Released, Proves Biden Fraud, Shows How Murkowski has Stolen Alaskan Elections Repeatedly

For the past 10 years, Restoring Liberty has been relentlessly reminding readers of the dangers of electronic voting, something that Alaska uses statewide, like most other states. Although voters fill out a paper ballot in the voting booth, that ballot is then scanned and converted to an electronic vote. As Joe Miller discovered in 2010, if you request a recount, that recount is also conducted by scanning ballots and converting them again to electronic votes.

Mike Lindell has been hot on the issues of election fraud since the huge vote integrity issues that began to arise after polling places closed nationwide on November 3, 2020. He compiled this excellent, informational video explaining the manipulation of the presidential vote that resulted in Biden’s illegitimate presidency:

Starting at 48:50, Mike Lindell also interviews Dr. Shiva, a candidate for U.S. Senate himself in 2020, who explains how the vote was cheated in his state. Vote counts in manipulated precincts had very little variance in the percentage vote for him versus the percentage vote for his opponent (40/60) while hand count precincts had wildly different results (55/45). This is a mirror image of how the Establishment rigged the races for Alaska’s illegitimate Senator Lisa Murkowski, where both in 2010 and 2016, the vote remained constant, within 1 percentage point throughout the entire night of returns despite the very politically-disparate regions throughout Alaska (native regions vs. interior vs. Anchorage vs. Southeast).

Why is this important? Without vote integrity, we have tyranny and ultimately the dissolution of the Republic.

Of Prop 2 and Alaskan Elections

The lawsuit being handled by Attorney Ken Jacobus on behalf of myself, Scott Kohlhaas and the Alaskan Independence Party, ought to be given close attention by all Alaskans. The Prop 2 initiative, funded by about 99% of money from the Lower 48, snuck under the radar to a delayed “victory” after November 3rd.

That is, if Alaskans believe that the integrity of our elections is valid. With the overthrow of states’ rights by the federal courts on-going for decades, more recently against the executive and legislative branches by the Alaskan judiciary, and a courtier press managing to keep these facts suppressed, we may never know again with any confidence what the will of the voters will be, on both the state and federal levels.

The swarm of mail-in absentee ballots had a fishy smell to them what with the court-ordered failure to require Witness Signatures. That decision was a shock even to the election bureaucracy and the Lt. Governor, who has the constitutional executive authority to oversee elections. And since the 2020 election chose federal presidential electors, one might reasonably argue that the state supreme court violated the U.S. Constitution in Article II, Sec. 1, par. 2: it says that the state legislatures will direct the manner of choosing electors — with no mention to any governor or the state courts.

Add to this the tardy admission that the Dominion data base was hacked or “exposed”, and the sky is the limit as to where reasonable people might speculate. Alaskans will not be put off by tut-tut assurances uttered by patronizing media gatekeepers or elected officials. Who trusts them any more?

With Prop 2, RINO Republicans and Democrats are claiming that Lisa Murkowski now looks bullet-proof in any Republican primary run. Of course, anyone who pulled off a miraculously unheard of re-election by write-ins in 2010 hardly needs to worry, but it gives her yet another safety net from her family-feathered Senate office.

One is also given to wonder why Glen Clary, the Alaskan GOP state chairman, will not defend his own party’s interests and join the AIP lawsuit. After all, it was by a unilateral action by Republicans in the 1990s that the Alaskan primary was changed, specifically to avoid the Arliss Sturgulewski syndrome. A RINO before the name was invented, Sturgulewski won two separate primaries for governor in 1986 and 1990 by having authentic conservatives splinter the vote and getting Democrats to pad her margins in the former open primary.

Alaskans need to know what Prop 2 is going to do to the elections and how it is going to damage election options in the general election. There will be a free-for-all elimination by the top four candidates. Using the actual results from 2010, we will round out the numbers and see what happened if Prop 2 was in effect.

Joe Miller – 55,000 – R

Lisa Murkowski- 53,000 – R

Scott McAdams – 18,000 – D

Jacob Kern – 7,000 – D

Fred Haase – 5700 – L

Frank Vondersaar – 5300 – D

Fred Haase, a sturdy and principled Libertarian candidate, would have been eliminated, as well as the perennial armchair Democrat Vondersaar. Alaskan statutes requires that for a political party to be officially “recognized”, it must have a statewide candidate garner at least 3% of the vote in the general election, but here we see that the Libertarian Party would not even make it that far.

Nor the Greens, Alaskan Independence, Veterans, Constitution or any others.

Some years ago there were no less than twelve US Senate candidates, with six serious ones who were either well-financed or conducted statewide campaigns. It would have resulted in three Republicans and one Democrat in the General Election, with no AIP, Libertarian or other party making the cut.

And — SURPRISE! — The “Sturgulewski Effect” would have kicked in for the General Election, with conservatives making their choices among the GOP. To be fair, Prop 2 enables the “Ranked Choice” to avoid this in the general election, but how many of us really believe the majority of voters understand or would utilize the system?

There are other problems with state interference into primary elections. As it now stands, the AIP by-laws require that its candidate for governor should be chosen by the convention method — yet a state statute specifically denies it. It takes a lot of guts for the state to dictate how a party should conduct its own affairs, but that’s what we get when we permit state funding: we get state dependency and control.

The only solution this author can offer would be to return to what primary elections are supposed to be: completely closed, where a privately controlled entity brooks no interference from either the government or non-party members, and pays for the costs, either through pre-paid party dues or a poll tax.

Murkowski Will Introduce Resolution That Could Effectively Enshrine Abortion Into U.S. Constitution

By AlaskaWatchman.com

On the 48th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision that legalized abortion across the nation, Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski announced, Jan. 22, that she will introduce a resolution in the U.S. Senate to approve the Equal Rights Amendment which many believe would effectively enshrine abortion into the U.S. Constitution.

Murkowski, who has increasingly aligned herself with radical pro-abortion and LGBTQ activists boasted about her “legislation,” which has long enjoyed the support of liberal Democrats.

The Equal Rights Amendment appears rather redundant, but both supporters and opponents admit it will likely fundamentally change abortion law, while expanding LGBTQ rights and eroding religious liberties. It states simply: “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”

Many political liberals and conservatives agree, that in addition to enshrining abortion in the U.S. Constitution the Equal Rights Amendment could easily be interpreted by federal courts to expand the military draft to women, ban sex-segregated prisons, and eliminate female only restrooms. In short, it would open Pandora’s box to a massive roll back of pro-life laws, and the rapid advance of special LGBTQ rights that violate religious liberties and free speech.

Introduced in 1972, the Equal Rights Amendment (or ERA) required 38 states to ratify it before 1979. Only 35 states agreed before the deadline had passed. That, however, has not stopped liberal activists from pushing the agenda.

Last year Virginia became the 38th state to ratify the ERA, although seven states have since rescinded their ratification and so it remains a legal question as to whether the 38-state threshold (which is three-fourths of all states) has been achieved. While three states ratified the ERA after the 1979 deadline, supporters of the measure say that should not matter.

Murkowski’s joint resolution mirrors a measure passed by the Democratic lead U.S. House last year, and reintroduced this year. Both resolutions state that the ERA’s deadline is null and void.

Murkowski introduced a similar resolution last year after the House passed its version, but the Republican-controlled Senate let it die in committee. Now with Vice President Kamala Harris able to cast a tie breaking vote in the evenly divided Senate, Murkowski’s resolution to nix the deadline will have new life with a Democratic controlled Senate.

But even if the Senate votes to support of the Equal Rights Amendment resolution, it is likely that the dispute over the deadline will go before the U.S. Supreme Court. The high court would also need to determine whether the seven states that have since rescinded their ratification are still on the hook.

Murkowski’s resolution will be jointly sponsored by Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland. Cardin is a radical abortion advocate. He even opposed a law that would have required doctors to offer medical treatment to babies who survived an attempt to kill them through abortion.

“As we begin a new Congress, I can think of no better legislation to lead with than one that removes impediments to find ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment,” Murkowski stated Jan. 22. “After years of work alongside Senator Cardin, I urge my colleagues to join us in ensuring equality for all.”

Study Shows More Alaskans Want Out Than Any Other State’s Residents

Population data from the latest U.S. Census counted in 2019 which is the latest available, compared to the data of 2018, shows Alaska losing a higher percentage of residents than any other state in the nation.

There was a population change of almost 6,000 people, or a loss of .8 percent. Zippia, a website resource for job-seekers, compiled the study that points out that their studies show that it has less to do with the uniquely Alaskan climate and natural challenges and more to do with the economy. As students graduate college, they tend not to be retained at a high enough rate to replace those who moved to Alaska during the oil boom 40 years ago, who are also retiring to move somewhere warmer.

Serial Killer in Fairbanks, Alaska? Eight Missing

. . .Since May of 2020, eight people have disappeared from the Fairbanks area[.]

“I don’t think it would be too much, given the circumstances and the fear that our community is in, to call in the F.B.I., who have additional resources, funding, that might be available to work with troopers and Fairbanks Police on [a] task force,” community leader, Jody Potts said during the vigil. “But that ask has to come from local authorities. And so we are asking that you call in the F.B.I. to work with these families and on these cases.”

Acting Fairbanks Police Chief Rick Sweet says the Fairbanks Police Department is already speaking with the F.B.I. about these missing person cases but would need to talk to law enforcement partners before calling agents to come to investigate locally.

Alaska Health Care Worker Hospitalized After Receiving COVID-19 Vaccine; State to Consider ‘Historical Injustice’ in Setting Vaccine Distribution Order

By NY Times. A health care worker in Alaska had a serious allergic reaction after getting Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine on Tuesday, symptoms that emerged within minutes and required an overnight hospital stay.

The middle-aged worker had no history of allergies, but had an anaphylactic reaction that began 10 minutes after receiving the vaccine at Bartlett Regional Hospital in Juneau, Alaska, a hospital official said. She experienced a rash over her face and torso, shortness of breath and an elevated heart rate.

Dr. Lindy Jones, the hospital’s emergency department medical director, said the worker was first given a shot of epinephrine, a standard treatment for severe allergic reactions. Her symptoms subsided but then re-emerged, and she was treated with steroids and an epinephrine drip. (Read more from “Alaska Health Care Worker Hospitalized After Receiving COVID-19 Vaccine” HERE)

State to Consider ‘Historical Injustice’ in Setting Vaccine Distribution Order

By Washington Examiner. California may include “historical injustice” as a factor in determining the distribution of coronavirus vaccines, a sign of social justice considerations entering the public health effort.

The idea was first introduced to California’s Community Vaccine Advisory Committee on Nov. 25 by Virginia Hedrick, according to NPR.

Hedrick is executive director of the California Consortium for Urban Indian Health. A member of the Yurok Tribe, she pointed out that Native Americans are 4 times more likely to be hospitalized for COVID-19 and twice as likely to die from it than white people.

She said it is important to consider that Native Americans suffered high rates of illness and death from diseases such as measles and smallpox when the first European settlers arrived here. (Read more from “State to Consider ‘Historical Injustice’ in Setting Vaccine Distribution Order” HERE)

Trump Administration Denies Permit for Pebble Mine

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has denied a permit for the Pebble Mine on Wednesday, likely dealing a lethal blow to the controversial project in Alaska’s Bristol Bay.

The decision on the proposed gold and copper mine is a victory for environmentalists, Native American groups, and the state’s commercial fishing industry, all of which opposed the project.

In a statement, the Corps said it “determined that the applicant’s plan for the discharge of fill material does not comply with Clean Water Act guidelines and concluded that the proposed project is contrary to the public interest.”

Opponents had argued the open-pit mine would leach sediment into nearby waters, harming the state’s salmon population while scarring pristine wilderness.

“Sometimes a project is so bad, so indefensible, that the politics fall to the wayside and we get the right decision. That is what happened today,” Tim Bristol, executive director of SalmonState, which promotes Alaska’s salmon industry, said in a statement.

Alaska Approves Ranked-Choice Voting

Alaskans voted for ranked-choice voting in statewide elections, according to The Washington Examiner.

Roughly 50 percent of Alaskans voted for the measure that will enable Alaskans to rank their choices of candidates from most favorable to least favorable, according to The Washington Examiner. Starting in 2022, the top four political candidates in the state will advance to the general election.

If one candidate receives more than half of first-choice votes, the candidate wins, Fox News reported. If a candidate does not receive over half of the votes, the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated, Fox News reported. The votes that ranked the eliminated candidates as the first choice would go to the second choice until a candidate receives over half of Alaskans’ votes, according to Fox News.

Trump Wins Alaska, Decision Desk HQ Projects

Decision Desk HQ called Alaska for President Donald Trump on Wednesday morning, awarding him the state’s three electoral votes on the outlet’s election map.

Decision Desk HQ is the first major outlet to award the state to Trump over Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. The call comes more than a week after election day on Nov. 3 and is one of the final states to be called by any major election decision desk. The state, which has elected an all-Republican congressional delegation, was widely expected to go to Trump despite significant delays in tallying its votes. . .

Decision Desk HQ declared Biden the winner of the presidential race over the weekend after projecting him to win Pennsylvania. A number of other major media companies followed suit, most after awarding the former vice president the state of Pennsylvania and pushing the Democratic candidate above 270 electoral votes on their election projection maps.
