After Murkowski Betrayed Kavanugh, Trump And Two Republican Superstars Challenge Her

Published

on

On Saturday President Trump, as usual, had no issue whatsoever calling the Rino senator from Alaska out by name.

The president during a rally called out Senator Lisa Murkowski by saying that Alaskans will “never forgive” her for voting against Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Murkowski was the only Republican who did not vote to confirm Kavanaugh. She initially voted no, and then withdrew her “no” vote to instead re-list herself as “present.” She did this as a courtesy to her Republican colleague Senator Steve Daines, who was in Montana to attend his daughter’s wedding and would have voted “yea” on Kavanaugh.

Here is more from CBS News:

“Mr. Trump compared Murkowski to Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a Republican swing vote who was the deciding vote in Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

“I think what Susan Collins did for herself was incredibly positive,” Trump said. “It showed her to be an honorable, incredible woman. I think she’s got a level of respect that’s unbelievable. I really mean it.”

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin suggested that she might challenge Murkowski in 2022 should she run for re-election. “Hey @LisaMurkowski — I can see 2022 from my house…” she wrote in a taunting tweet Friday.

Mr. Trump demurred when asked by the Post whether he thought Palin could defeat Murkowski in a primary challenge.

“I don’t know anything about that. It’s four years. That’s a long time. But they will not forget. They will never forget. What she did was unacceptable. Really unacceptable,” he said.

But although Murkowski isn’t up for re-election until 2022 President Trump compared her to Maine Senator Susan Collins who is also a RINO swing vote who was the ultimately the deciding vote in Kavanaugh’s confirmation.”

Here is more on what Sarah Palin and Laura Ingrahm had to say about Murkowski’s vote via The Blaze:

“Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska was the only Republican to vote “no” in a procedural vote that put Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh one step away from finally being confirmed, which caused former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to issue a veiled threat on Twitter.

Palin, who had been calling for Murkowski to support Kavanaugh, asking the senator to “do the right thing.” After the vote, Palin indicated that the decision to oppose Kavanaugh might cost Murkowski her seat.

“Hey @LisaMurkowski – I can see 2022 from my house…” Palin wrote on Twitter. Murkowski’s Senate term ends in 2023, and Palin’s message led some to believe Palin may challenge for the seat. The wording was a reference to a Saturday Night Live skit that made fun of Palin.

Palin wasn’t the only one to question whether Murkowski’s run as Alaska senator needed to end. Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted: “I like Alaska…a lot. Maybe it’s time to run for Senate after all. @lisamurkowski has abandoned all principles of due process and fairness. Disgraceful. #ConfirmKavanaugh.”

Murkowski has an interesting history with Palin. Murkowski’s father, former Gov. Frank Murkowski, appointed his daughter to the Senate in 2002 — picking her over Palin.

Palin was governor of Alaska from December 2006 until July 2009, having defeated Murkowski’s father in the primary. Palin supported Republican candidate Joe Miller in the 2010 Senate race, and Miller beat Murkowksi in the primary — but Murkowski defied party leaders to win as a write-in candidate.

In 2016, Murkowski won the Republican Primary, but Miller still ran against her as a Libertarian candidate.

In short, the politics in Alaska are not like the politics in most states, and Murkowski’s relationship with the Republican Party is such that she is less likely than most to feel obligated to vote the party line.

Additionally, the issue of sexual violence is of particular sensitivity in Alaska, which has the highest rate of sexual assault in the country, and is especially high among Native women — a key coalition of support for Murkowski.

Murkowski’s against-the-grain vote on Kavanaugh, combined with her contentious history with Palin, means that in the coming years she may find herself in a somewhat familiar position — battling against the Republican establishment.

“There will be long-term resentment among Republican voters due to Sen. Murkowski’s lack of courage today,” said Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America, according to The New York Times. “Conservative women never forget.”

Now wouldn’t that be a cool scenario? Either one of these two, Palin or Ingraham would make a way better Senator than Murkowski ever was. Not really sure how she was able to keep her seat after the challenge from tea party candidates in 2010 and 2014, but she managed to win. Makes you wonder what exactly is going through those frozen heads of people in Alaska. Although being from California maybe I shouldn’t talk. It’s like both states are confused.

Let’s hope someone does come out and beats Murkowski in what we can now consider the Democrat Senator from the great state of Alaska!

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
