When it comes to confirming federal judges, appointees and nominees for the U.S. Supreme Court, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka has pledged to only vote for those who embrace a constitutionalist approach to law.

On Oct. 26, the conservative Republican Tshibaka unveiled the principles she would employ when it comes to supporting constitutionalist presidential nominees and opposing what she calls “radical, leftists.”

Unlike incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Tshibaka said she would oppose “extreme leftists” who have enacted policies that have devastated Alaska’s economy and independence.

“Incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski voted for more than 90 percent of Biden’s cabinet nominees, including environmental extremist Deb Haaland as Interior Secretary, and supported Ketanji Brown Jackson for the U.S. Supreme Court,” Tshibaka’s statement noted. “Murkowski has also voted to confirm leftist nominees throughout the judicial system, including the judge who blocked the job-creating Willow oil and gas project and the life-saving King Cove Road. Murkowski also supported ‘Defund the Police’ activist Vanita Gupta to become the Department of Justice official in charge of grants to local police departments.”

Tshibaka said these types of appointees are responsible for enacting a harmful agenda that cripples Alaska’s resource industries and thousands of jobs that support families.

“Lisa Murkowski votes to approve almost all of them because she cares more about her membership in the D.C. club than she does about Alaska,” Tshibaka stated. “When I’m in the Senate, I will do everything I can to stop radical nominees from imposing rules from the Lower-48 that purposely strangle us.”

Tshibaka made the following pledges regarding constitutionalist nominees:

— “I will only support constitutionalist judicial nominees, those who interpret the law as it was written and who do not legislate from the bench.”

— “I will always oppose radical, leftist Cabinet, department, and judicial nominees.”

— “I will protect and defend our constitutional rights, fighting against executive branch agencies that infringe on our freedoms.”

    Well. it sounds like Kelly want to rule by the Constitution not by what others think it say. That’s great! That’s how/what our country needs. That’s how we got to where we’re at, by NOT following the Constitution. Alaska has corrupt judges that make law from the bench. They don’t follow the Constitution. That’s why Alaska is failing. We need a governor and a U.S Senator to follow the Constitution and get us back on track. Vote Kelly Tshibaka for U.S. Senator for Alaska on November 8th.

      Already voted for Murkowski 🙂

    • Terry Stires says:

      Neil can you tell me about a judge that didn’t follow the constitution? Seems like they have to.

    • Judith Ritenburgh says:

      Hi Neil! How do explain the thousands of anti constitutional rules and laws that are currently being supported by actions and words followed by Cult members?
      Our constitution says trump lost legally but many of you are fighting the written words. And how do trump and his followers figure the constitution allows them to attack our legislators and ask to hang our Vice President. And ignore supports and othe judicial issues!

    Hell yes!

  • Me says:

    She needs to step up and demand honest and free elections. First step is to support the state legislature repealing proposition 2.

  • ML says:

    Kelly was the clear winner of the debate last night. She aced it all and made the other two look rather silly and self serving.

    The commentary of Joel Davidson, was spot on. Judges have too much discretionary power, and therefore make a ruling based on their personal beliefs or agenda. I’ve seen it run ramped in Fairbanks, with no accountability.
