    Murkowski on D.C. protests: ‘It is truly mob rule at the moment’

    By AlaskaWatchman.com

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski joined Sen. Dan Sullivan and Rep. Don Young in condemning the actions of some protesters who broke through barricades and entered the U.S. Capital building as Congress was debating the merits of the Electoral College votes.

    “The dangerous and destructive activity at the Capitol is continuing to unfold,” Murkowski said in a released statement. “I, along with other members of the Senate, are secure but the situation is clearly not safe. It is truly mob rule at the moment. My prayers are with the officers that are protecting and defending and who have gone down. Mr. President, tell your supporters to stop the violence. Stop the assault. Now.”

    Earlier in the day President Trump released a video asking protesters to go home in peace. He did, however, acknowledge their anger and hurt by a “fraudulent election” which he said, “was stolen from us.”

    “It’s a very tough period of time where such a thing happened – where they could take it away from all of us. From me, from you, from our country,” the president added.

    A massive crowd of tens of thousands took part in a peaceful rally and march earlier in the day, with President Trump addressing the crowd before the march began. It is unclear who the violent protesters were at the Capital building, or which groups they were affiliated with.

    This is a developing story.

    1. Does this he/she/it person really deserve our time? We have no representation here in Alaska. The cheating, human sacrificing, devil worshippers, have a majority now.

    2. Lisa this would not have happened if you would have joined the other Senators & the Requests of many Alaskans to investigated this past fraudulent election in many States . YOU CAN NOT APPROVE FRAUD IN VOTING PEROID !

      • Ed, you exactly right. Lisa rides the fence, easier for her to see which direction the political winds are blowing. She never did represent the people of Alaska, only the lobbyist that fill her coffers.

    3. And the evil shall come into the light. Just wait Lisa. Watch what happens next. This is just phase one. Wait until word gets out nationwide that you people had an unarmed woman murdered

    4. Lisa knows all about CHEATING in elections, so certainly she sees patriots that are fed up like hell with the way the current government is run, as a mob. Cheating is acceptable to her and the DEEP STATE. This is more than likely just the beginning of civil clash between the people and the DEEP STATE. Sides are being drawn and no one is cooling down. I hope the Democrats are proud of themselves for pushing and pushing to the point there’s nothing left to do but FIGHT.

    5. Did RINO Lisa say one thing about the 200 CITIES that were bring burned down by Antifa and BLM this past summer. Did she condemn the 5 Dallas police officers that were shot by BLM when the Obamunist was president. The media’s outrage now is truly rich.

    6. Now after the vote on the Hill, I find all three of our congressional delegation are morally corrupt! They can never in a thousand years defend their actions NOT to investigate & allow for a commission to examine the Election Fraud of 2020 in numerous swing states! Shame on all of you! Truth must prevail, and that your Oath’s mean nothing when it comes to Preserving our Republic ! God help us Americans !!!!!

    7. So you have an opinion of current events now? The election anomalies still go unnoticed? Oh yeah, you have your own election anomaly history. The spirit of something is usually just beneath the surface of design. Like rotating the ‘c’ in ‘democrat’ 90 degrees clockwise.

    8. Alaska has been cursed with Murkowski for a long time now
      She will have a seat at the table of Creepy Joe’s administration though to further enrich herself and to screw over her constituents
      I see some very tough times ahead for our state

    9. Here’s a letter I sent to Murkowski today. Feel free to use it yourself.

      Vote NO on any articles of impeachment.

      It’s about time both legislative branches got down to the business of actually legislating. You were elected to represent the interests of Alaska and as a conservative, to reduce the size and scope of the Federal government. Focus on doing that-and speak out, with courage, against divisive and partisan actions that will only create more divisions in this country. Margaret Thatcher once said, “ For me, pragmatism is not enough. Nor is that fashionable word ‘consensus.’…To me consensus seems to be the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies in search of something in which no one believes, but to which no one objects…”. If you can’t stand up for conservative principles, if you want to break with the beliefs, principles and values of the people that elected you, then have the courage of your convictions and resign.
