    U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski said Friday that Donald Trump should resign the presidency immediately and that if the Republican Party cannot separate itself from Trump, she isn’t certain she has a future with the party. “I want him to resign. I want him out. He has caused enough damage,” Murkowski, R-Alaska, said during an interview from her small Capitol office, steps away from the Senate chambers that were invaded by pro-Trump rioters on Wednesday......"

    Breitbart ^ | Dec 19 | ALLUM BOKHARI
    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin added her voice to the growing chorus of conservative figures favoring a pardon of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. “I made a mistake some years ago, not supporting Julian Assange — thinking that he was a bad guy… I’ve learned a lot since then,” said Palin in a short video posted online. WikiLeaks and Palin were once at odds, the former publishing leaked emails from the latter during the 2008 presidential campaign when Palin was the Republican candidate for vice president. But Palin appears to have moved on from that incident, offering an unequivocal call for...

    American Thinker ^ | 11/18/2020 | John Blu
    Although the poorly documented, sudden appearance, of thousands of "Biden" ballots may appear to be fraud, it's not proof. And in any event, they're mixed in with the full ballot pool, and can't be disentangled. Or can they? Let's consider the dumping scenario. Due to the limited time frame required to falsify ballots, it's likely that only a limited number of people participated. So what does this mean? It means that : (1) the same sets of fingerprints should appear on multiple ballots (likely in the same place(s) on the ballot), and (2) these identifiers won't match known voting ballot...

    Palin responded to comments in Obama's A Promised Land during a Friday evening interview with Newsmax. Both she and host Greg Kelly ridiculed Obama as "aloof and snobby as he's ever been" after he tied her to what he described as xenophobic and paranoid thinking that now dominates the Republican Party... ...Palin said Obama's depiction of her in his new book overlooks that she and the Tea Party movement at the time promoted diversity within the GOP, particularly the "Mama Grizzlies" embrace of conservative women. "It's the antithesis of what the left is acting out today. They're choosing people based...

    Dan Sullivan won re-election in Alaska on Wednesday — putting the Republicans within one seat of maintaining their majority in the U.S. Senate. The Republican incumbent defeated independent challenger Al Gross who was running with the backing of Democrats, meaning control of the Senate will come down to two runoff elections in Georgia between GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler and the Rev. Raphael Warnock and Republican Sen. David Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff. Democrats have 48 seats in the Senate

    As of 5 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, six states that will decide the next president remained uncalled, as did a handful of Senate races that will determine who controls the chamber. Here’s where things stand on Day 3, when you can expect final results, and how to follow along as this extraordinary election unfolds. What are we waiting for? In the presidential race, as of 5 p.m. Eastern, we did not yet know who won Alaska (3 electoral votes), Arizona (11), Georgia (16), Nevada (6), North Carolina (15) or Pennsylvania (20).

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Speaker Nancy Pelosi once predicted she’d have the 2020 House Democratic majority secured by November — of 2019. Now, days before the Nov. 3 election, she seems to have done it, and she’s expanding her reach. With control of the House hardly contested, Pelosi is working to fortify Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and win extra House seats in case Congress is called on to resolve any Electoral College dispute with President Donald Trump. Pelosi said she feels so confident Democrats will keep the House this election, she’s already preparing to win the next one in 2022....

    PITTSFIELD (WGME) -- Senator Susan Collins says she will vote against Judge Amy Coney-Barrett being elected to the Supreme Court. Sen. Collins releases statement on Supreme Court Vacancy "It's not a comment on her,” Collins said. “It is a comment on the process of rushing through a nomination in such a short time before a presidential election." Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski also said she will be a no vote for the same reason. To block the confirmation, two more senators would have to vote against Coney-Barrett, but Republicans have said they have the votes.

    And Senator Lisa Murkowski then jumped in to announce she would not vote for a SCOTUS nominee until after Election Day. Murkowski represents red state Alaska but is a very weak Republican and a huge disappointment to conservatives and Trump voters. But after Judge Amy Coney Barrett was nominated by President Trump on Saturday Senator Murkowski released a statement saying she is willing to meet with Amy Coney Barrett
