Speaking at one of the nation’s largest political and press events of the year, U.S. Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka had sharp and poetic words for incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

Tshibaka’s Feb. 24 talk was featured at CPAC 2022, held in Orlando, Florida, where former President Donald Trump is scheduled to speak on Saturday and Sunday.

Tshibaka’s seven-minute speech blasted Murkowski for siding with “radical progressives who want to wipe out diversity of thought.”

She noted that Murkowski has repeatedly backed President Biden’s extreme nominees to lead federal agencies.

“She cast the tie-breaking vote to confirm the radical environmentalist Deb Haaland to be Joe Biden’s interior secretary,” Tshibaka said. “And with that single vote, Murkowski killed thousands of oil and gas jobs.”

Tshibaka shared her personal story of growing up in Alaska as her parents’ successfully struggle to emerge from poverty and economic hardship.

“I owe everything to Alaska and to all those Alaskans who came around my family to give us those opportunities that we had,” she said. “But Lisa Murkowski? Well, she owes everything to her dad who appointed her to his vacant Senate seat when he was elected governor. For the Murkowski’s it’s a little bit like the British royal family. In the same way that Queen Elizabeth is going to hand on that crown to a descendent, the Murkowski’s have been handing down our Senate seat like a birthright for 41 years.”

Tshibaka blasted Murkowski for advancing Biden’s failing agenda – acting as “Joe Biden’s CEO – his chief enabling officer.”

She called out Murkowski for helping to craft the Green New Deal, and said it is time to “hold these leftists supporting insiders accountable.”

The biggest cheers came at Tshibaka’s poetic alliteration during her closing remarks.

“And aren’t we all excited that come this November, we are going to block Biden’s business busting, border bungling, crime cascading, defense decimating, energy annihilating, gun grabbing, gender jumbling, liberty loathing, mandate militating, parent punishing, police persecuting, socialist aborting, America obliterating agenda?”

“I’m not standing on the sidelines while Joe Biden, Lisa Murkowski and their woke, leftist friends continue to obliterate the state and the country that I love,” Tshibaka concluded. “No, I’m all in.”

CPAC is the third ranked political event of the year, behind the State of the Union and the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. The four-day gathering (Feb. 24-27) brings together and energizes over 18,000 people – from college-aged to retired – who represent leading conservative organizations, educational institutions, elected officials, thought leaders, media personalities, and grassroots activists who fight for conservatism in America and abroad.

    I’m not sure any longer that Senator Murkowski understands what she has done. She has been around president Biden so long that his dementia has rubbed off on her I think! She has no clue anylonger.

  • Di says:

    Yahoo! I’m all in for Tshibaka!!

  • Terry Tiree says:

    All Tshibaka can do is complain. Nothing about her qualifications. It’s all groan and gripe about grievances.

  • Vickie says:

    Kelly has an amazing history dealing with all the corruption in congress. If you haven’t had a chance to meet her in person and talk to her, your missing out, yes she points out all of Lisas flaws and her track record because its all true. She comes from humble beginnings and is intelligent, articulate and knows what needs to be done. She has traveled to numerous villages and spoken with many ALASKANS from all walks of life, she knows the needs and is willing to listen and not make bogus promises. Terry Tiree I you but I have to agree to disagree. I think you may have missed some important information. Lisa has not been true to her party or the Alaskan People for many many years. She needs to receive her pink slip and get a real taste of reality. Bye bye LISA … GOOD RIDDANCE! Mrs Vic A

    • Terry Tiree says:

      Still Vickie, nothing about what Tshibaka wants to do, only a gripe-fest against Murkowski.

      • Linda says:

        Get onto her website and attend one of her gatherings…ask questions in person! She will tell you!

      • Tundrasky says:

        You are right same old election rhetoric not impressive.This is what we have to vote against Murkowski.SAD…

  • Vickie says:

    Terry Tiree.. I admire you…. But I have to disagree. Hugs Mrs. Vic

  • Akdale says:

    She is stating she will support the Republican platform and not vote with Democrats. Her gripe is Lisa has and shes correct. Other than that……i agree no focus on specific things she will do to make Alaska safer, free, and prosperous. If she has, please list them here.

    • Steve P Peterson says:

      AKdale, she was speaking to Republicans across the nation, not to Alaskans, therefore no specifics on what she will do for Alaskans. That was the nature of the venue. Look at her site : for what she promises Alaskans.
      As for Terry the Troll; ” It’s all groan and gripe about grievances.” fits you to a T. Can’t you find a nice liberal site to groan and grip on?

  • Alaska Girl says:

    Actions speak louder than words. What exactly has she done? Reading her resume reveals a career as a DC lawyer who flourished in the swamp. No one wants Murkowski back in office but jumping on the only candidate who has been given to us is dangerous territory…..look how that worked out with Dan Sullivan.

    • Tundrasky says:

      Exactly she is a weak canidate nothing impressive about her.Switch Kelly against Young and Nick Begich against Murkowski.

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    I’m all in for Kelly.
    I’m a super voter/Republican, but I can say that I’ve never voted for Lisa, she’s a Lying, cheating, loser.

  • Roy wichers says:

    I keep saying all of the new Trump supporting republican candidates need to sign a contract with certain basic ideales of. Term limits, constitutional and natural laws, America first on all issues, ect President Trump has set the anti globalist agenda and that I the real republican ideal and cleaning the swamp establishment pawns and that is the only secure future for America. That is why the old swamp republican party was no good for our country. We have to admit that most of them played the voters the democrats and Republicans were two sides of the same coin and incumbents used us to get wealthy
    and powerful while being globalists behind smoke and mirrors. We have to stay on top of ALL elected and appointed officials or history will continue getting worse. We have to be the real Americans not like anywhere else and be guided by our founding principles and values. The United nations must go and all the globalist ideology with them like the W.T.O.,W.M.F.and the federal reserve, The federal government must be held in check and the individual rights, local and state power given the control over our own lives again. There must be a real vetting of who allowed to run and campaign it means a strong country and leaders not puppets of corporate lobbyists that are intentionally controlled (globalists).The world we live in America first must always come first or our future is last and LOST! President Trump has given us our pride back and now it’s time we got our country back. God bless America ,liberty justice and freedom a natural right that the governments only job is to protect. Thank you Trump family and Donald for your sacrifice as real leaders have always done. The father of our country set the mold of what real Americans are made of. Just like native American chiefs abided by giving the power to others and leading by example.

    • Terry Tiree says:

      Trump has sacrificed a damn thing. He’s 100% corrupt. Your conservative ideals are solid but defendant Trump has no interest in them and in that sense he fooled you.

      • Stepper says:

        Terry, what proof do you have that Trump is corrupt? Not going to allow you to use CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS nor NPR as a defense.

  • Terry Tiree says:

    Stepper: to even posit the idea that Trump is NOT corrupt proves that you are extraordinary gullible. And who are you to restrict my sources of information?
