I am a huge supporter of Kelly Tshibaka for the US Senate. I want to lay out a few issues that you may or may not know about Kelly, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, and rank choice voting.

Kelly Tshibaka

First off, Kelly Tshibaka; watch the video announcing her campaign for U.S. Senate.

You might have heard of her while she was Commissioner of Administration. Kelly was a guest speaker at the March Mat-Su Chapter of the Association of Mature American Citizens Action meeting. If you missed the meeting, you can watch it on my Facebook page.   

Kelly Tshibaka has an impressive resume and a record of fighting against government waste. She stands up to the insiders and is willing to fight against intense pressure. This was evident during her confirmation hearings as a state commissioner when liberal representatives resorted to personal attacks because they couldn’t attack her for the work she has done. Bottom line, Kelly Tshibaka took her training and years of experience at the DOJ and other federal agencies as an inspector/investigator and used that to seriously examine the ways agencies she dealt with were working. Was that agency/department using the dollars in a wise and fruitful manner? Was there duplication of effort with other agencies/departments that could be combined to save time and money? Was there waste? Could procurement of like items of all or many agencies/departments be combined, thus saving time and money? These were and are just a few things she has done over the past two years as our Commissioner of Administration and 17 years before that in D.C.

Kelly can and will take that knowledge and training and use it as our U.S. Senator to ensure that our taxpayer dollars are being used to the full benefit, with the least amount of fraud, waste and abuse as possible.

Then of course there are other issues that will make her an outstanding senator for the great state of Alaska!  We must have a senator that will fight back against the new administration’s attack on our state lands and resources. They want to make Alaska into one big “park.” We must have the votes of conservatives to stop the Senate from going along with those attacks and the theft of our lands.  Today, the Senate is so called 50/50. For the next two years, it is iffy what will happen. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer may get rid of the filibuster and then pass all sorts of laws that will have grave impact to our lands and to us, Alaskans and Americans.

Murkowski has voted with the socialists for the past two years far too many times.

Another issue that is near and dear to all is our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights!  No way can I or anyone predict what this next two years holds.  All I can say is God help us all!  With Kelly Tshibaka in the Senate for the last two years of the Biden/Harris or Harris/new VP administration, along with hopefully the Senate being taken back with a clearer majority and maybe less RINOs, our God given civil rights can be maintained and if need be “returned.”  It will take having Tshibaka and more senators like her to save this nation from certain take over by communism!  Like all of you, I am very concerned that we may or may not have a nation in two years.  That does not mean we give up the fight for a real true conservative to replace the likes of Lisa Murkowski.

Murkowski has voted with the socialists for the past two years far too many times.  In my opinion, she flat out lied to President Trump on many occasions regarding her support of his policies.  Lisa has voted for every Biden cabinet nominee, including the most recent – far left associate attorney general Vanita Gupta. Of course, her votes on Obamacare, Justice Kavanaugh, and voting to impeach President Trump after he was out of office are just three of the most terrible votes. I will not go on about Lisa because we all know her record. Kelly Tshibaka will highlight the facts as Lisa will surely call them “negative campaign ads.”

When it comes to federal races, campaign donations to both Lisa and Kelly can and will come from “outside” groups.  Thus, rest assured that the likes of Senator Mitch McConnel and Chuck Schumer, along with the Dark Money from George Soros, Environmentalist PACs, etc. will be going to Lisa.  Fortunately, Kelly Tshibaka’s support will be coming from people who backed President Trump, but that does not mean we Alaskans can sit and wait and watch without spending our capitol in support of Kelly.  Lisa has a war-chest of $1.2 million to start. She has not built that up because she didn’t figure she would have to use it or (as I’m told), donors who are fed up with her and not donating! Make no mistake about it, the Dark Money will pour in, and I would bet that a lot of that money will be from socialists that believe Lisa will cave in the future!

So, in closing.  Kelly Tshibaka needs campaign volunteers to help her get out the facts to as many Alaskans as we can over the next two years. That means, letters to the editors, supporters on Facebook, Parler, Gab, Twitter (if they don’t toss you), talking to your friends so they tell their friends to vote for Kelly Tshibaka in November of 2022!

There will be other means to help but Kelly needs money for print ads, radio and TV spots, and getting the message to Alaskans.  We have 142,000 mature Alaskans, 60 years and above.  If we got $10 dollars each, that would be $1.42 million!  Not bad for just one demographic!  NRA members, North Slope workers, fishery workers, small business and so many others can make a difference in having a campaign that has the means to really take the fight to Lisa Murkowski and WIN!

If you support Kelly Tshibaka and want to take back our state and federal government, then go to www.kellyforak.com, read about where she stands on the issues and donate your time, money and support.

Let me leave you with this:  I’m not rich by any means, I have a tight, and since I’m retired, a very unforgiving budget, but I am and will be putting as much time, effort and yes money toward the removal of Lisa Murkowski and replacing her with an outstanding Alaskan that is not beholden to any outside dark money, lobbyist and socialist.  I fully and completely support Kelly Tshibaka, and I ask that you do too!

  • John J. Otness says:

    17 YEARS IN THE SEWER DC SCARES THE HELL OUTTA ME,,, CANT WE GET AN ALASKAN TO RUN THAT IS NOT TAINTED BY WHAT SHE HAS BEEN THROUGH,,,, I DONT KNOW WHAT DELUSION YOU PEOPLE ARE UNDER BUT THIS IS NOT RIGHT…..

    • John J. Otness says:

      NOW WE ARE LETTING THE ACTUAL DC SWAMP REPRESNT US? UNBELIEVABLE……

    • Michael C Coons says:

      More hate? Gee John, you must live a sad life!
      Have you listened to Kelly and how that knowledge of working as an IG will help in her fight against the swamp? Do you know where the skeletons are in say CIA, DOJ, Postal Service, all places she was the in the IG of! Oh, that’s right, all talk no action again! No real knowledge of the true issues, just another blowhard. Sorry, I get it, Kelly can’t count on your vote, too bad, but I’m sure for every one like you there are 10’s and 100’s more that are willing to stand up for our nation and work with Kelly!

      • John J. Otness says:

        No hate mr sheep………. Just weighing all the facts…. not falling in love with a stranger who just came out of DC ,, Oh thats right you heard her speech… sheesh..

  • John J. Otness says:

    LOL. the swamp sends us a life ring because this state has no talent? What a joke…

  • John J. Otness says:

    Have your girl stand up for our basic voting right by fighting Dominion and maybe I will listen until then you doe eyed star struck can dream on of your new savior.

    • Michael C Coons says:

      Enough said on a fool.

      • John J. Otness says:

        Indeed,,,, Time will measure that statement, and who is the fool.

      • John J. Otness says:

        Remember Life is stranger than fiction and that Sen Dan Sullivan a Marine voted for an anti Progress in our State radical Communist Interior Secretary. Warning flags went flying on Your Gal when she praised RBG who led the charge to mass murder Babes in the womb in her abortion activism as a Supreme Court Judge and also wanted the age of child sex lowered to 14 for her pedophile buddies if not herself, A Christian does not praise that kind of woman in Eulogy.

      • Linda says:

        It appears that you dislike living in Alaska. You bash the natives and all people who don’t agree with you. Are you a Democrat? California is down on population…I invite you to move there. ..with your kind. So far in America we have that privilege! I’ll help you pack!!

  • John J. Otness says:

    Bash the Natives,,,,, You reach deep little sister,,, I point out the corrupt,,, you bash yourself not I….

    • John J. Otness says:

      I love this state of my birth ,,, I wish more did.

      • John J. Otness says:

        Alaska has always been played and raped by Politicians You all just take what ever comes your way and it shows by the state of our State… A new face shows up and because you want Murkowski gone so bad you would roll out the red carpet to someone who has been in the swamp for 17 of the past 19 years… I want Murkowski gone worse than any but taking someone who has not bled Alaska makes me wonder who is behind this. She shows up at the door and the naive swoon without vetting . Sad that when a politician leads by parading GOD and has no substance in message like that we will cease as a Nation and a State without the demise of the Dominion voting machines then we have not found our leader we have found nothing as our vote has been cancelled,,, I wish you could see the peril. But this Delusion is Biblical. The people seek a leader when the power was theirs all along, They just lost the ability to know they had it. They became sheep.

  • PJ Olson says:

    Murkowski has to go but her replacement shouldn’t default to the first possibly attractive choice that we’re offered and “I hate Murkowski and fear for the future” isn’t actually a valid reason to throw our support to someone else who hasn’t revealed her actual platform. What are Kelly’s position statements on the important issues? You won’t find them on her website beyond vague and essentially meaningless blather about “Alaskan values” and attempts to draft off things her parents did or experienced. Kelly has spent her entire adult life working in government. So much for that broad base of experience that would help her understand all of us common folk. Before moving into government she was educated at one of the most liberal universities in the country. I texted her to ask for specifics on her policy positions and her reply (or someone’s reply in her name) was “We’ll get around to it eventually.” She better get around to it right now…on her website for all to see because I’m not falling for the first non-Murkowski alternative without knowing EXACTLY what she stands for.

    • Michael C Coons says:

      to PJ and all. Kelly is going around the state speaking. She will be at Palmer tomorrow, think at the Palmer Depot. She has been down on the Kenai, and many other places. Listen to her, ask her questions and she does answer.

  • NorthernMegaWood says:

    I’m with PJ and JJ. I want Murkowski gone too. People need to think long and hard before making a decision on who to replace her with. NOT the first one to make a splash. Soon as I heard where she came from I lost interest. Just what Alaska needs is another swampster!

  • DB2 says:

    Dear Alaskans of Goodwill,
    Especially those who realize how blessed we are to live in such a naturally beautiful and abundant land…..please grab 2-3, 40-55 gallon trash bags and go clean up the landscape! Takers are going to take and destroy, it is up to the rest of us to care for what we have here.
    Thanks a bunch!

    • Michael says:

      Exactly! Invest in Your community. Its easy to complain about the lack of compassion. So I challenge you to look in the mirror and ask what you have done to help? What can you do? We must shed the negativity.
