U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski announced today that she will support the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who has been nominated to be a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. 

“After multiple in-depth conversations with Judge Jackson and deliberative review of her record and recent hearings, I will support her historic nomination to be an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court,” Murkowski said in a statement released after hours on the East Coast.

“My support rests on Judge Jackson’s qualifications, which no one questions; her demonstrated judicial independence; her demeanor and temperament; and the important perspective she would bring to the court as a replacement for Justice Breyer. She clerked for Justice Breyer before working in the private sector and as a federal public defender, and then serving as Vice Chair of the U.S. Sentencing Commission, a district court judge, and now an appeals court judge. She will bring to the Supreme Court a range of experience from the courtroom that few can match given her background in litigation. 

“It also rests on my rejection of the corrosive politicization of the review process for Supreme Court nominees, which, on both sides of the aisle, is growing worse and more detached from reality by the year. While I have not and will not agree with all of Judge Jackson’s decisions and opinions, her approach to cases is carefully considered and is generally well-reasoned. She answered satisfactorily to my questions about matters like the Chevron doctrine, the Second Amendment, landmark Alaska laws, and Alaska Native issues. The support she has received from law enforcement agencies around the country is significant and demonstrates the judge is one who brings balance to her decisions.”

“I will support the motion to discharge Judge Jackson’s nomination later tonight, and her confirmation later this week,” Murkowski concluded.

Jackson is most assuredly headed for confirmation by the Senate and will join the Supreme Court upon the retirement of Justice Stephen Breyer. She is considered by conservatives to be the most radical leftwing activist judge to ever be appointed to the Supreme Court.

  1. Am I the only one who notices that Murkowski Never Ever opposes the Democrat party on important votes?

    • Nope, she has her motives. She very well intends to attract the D voters of Alaska, while maintaining some base of RINO voters, she intends to eat her cake and have it too.

  2. Apparently Lisa approves of the sexual torture and exploitation of very young children. Just another reason to vote NO on the Murkowski cabal.

    • If you invested even the most modest, minimal research, you would know that your comment is patently untrue. Get a grip, Caterina!

    • By extension, you are correct. Jackson has let pedophiles off with light sentences, and they reoffend. So yes, Murkowski either doesn’t care or approves.
      Then off course, Jackson cannot even make a distinction as to what constitutes a man or a woman, so she is a really bad choice for a SCOTUS justice. Again Murkowski doesn’t seem to care, because Murkowski only considers herself.
      It doesn’t take much thought to realize that all Jackson is is an affirmative action choice. The irony is that, if Democrats can’t distinguish gender anymore, why is it so important that they install a woman?

        • How so? Prior to even naming her, Biden said (with help I’m sure) that he wanted a black female on the SCOTUS. Is it that hard for you to get your head around Steve’s comment without having a knee jerk reaction? The same thing was done for Kamala Harris. Tell me how someone with 3% of the polling – and who dropped out FIRST among all Dem candidates – gets nominated for the V.P. position. Are you going call anyone who points these things out “racist”? Looks like you’re the one who’s asleep at the switch.

    • What? How did Barbara leap to that conclusion? She must be a delusional QAnon follower. I guess there are no truth filters on the comments posted here. Judge Jackson’s sentencing record is line with those of other judges and the sentencing guidelines. The preposterous suggestion of “Lying Ted Cruz” and other senators that she is soft on child pornographers has been thoroughly repudiated.

      • Umm…what exactly is QAnon?

        I only ask because I really do not know, but those such as you seem to….is it some sort of boogeyman…sorry, boogeyperson?

        And please do not bring up Alex Jones…that particular nutcase is an individual with his own proclivities and does NOT represent the vast majority of individuals that object to either the candidates proven lenience as to facilitators of child porn nor the approval of our not so fair Senator.

        And as to ‘sentencing guidelines’, perhaps those within the candidate’s circle of similar ‘guidelines’ need to revisit their light sentences, so as to prevent said offenders to so easily reoffend again….

        And who has thoroughly repudiated such charges?

        Those that think and act as she has, or those that are victims of said abuse.

        Or better yet, those that treat stories within malfeasance, though true, because it makes for bad press, such as the Hunter Biden revelations, which are just now coming unto fruition two years after being hidden by those that repudiated said information.

        There is truth, and there is truth that has been not only ignored, but fought against, prevailing a lie.

        Methinks, huh, Auto, etc., are all the same individual, and it would not surprise me within the least that said individual is an Assembly member, most likely Constant, but perhaps Dunbar, or their actors, as that is how they would roll, being the cowards, they are…

    • Of course there is a cure.
      Given the Republican party’s willingness to go along with Murkowski’s liberal BS it is clear that the cure is to take you vote somewhere else……

  3. Murkowski is pure evil! Judge Jackson cannot and will not define a Woman, so how can she protect Woman’s rights? The Left has become the single greatest threat to women and all that is righteous and worth preserving in this World.

    • It was an entirely stupid and irrelevant question posed to Judge Brown-Jackson. Get a grip, Philip!

      • No, Barbara, it was a sensible question being asked of an insidious and insane wokester who has NO regard for and NO understanding of inherent individual rights.

        • No, Jefferson, it was an inane gotcha question, that has nothing to do with judicial qualifications. I am sure Judge Brown knows what a woman is. She just refused to answer the stupid question. Republicans are not the only ones who engage in this behavior. They asked politically charged questions to Trump’s nominees. The justices nominated by Trump refused to answer those questions. Senate confirmation hearing are now just political theater. Dems will find a reason to oppose any nominee a Republican puts forward, and Republicans will manufacture equally specious reasons to oppose Democratic candidates. The only way to survive this political kabuki is to refuse to engage.

      • To adjudicate the new Violence Against Women Act, there has to be a definition of the word woman. How can she, or the rest of the court, or any other court,judge any case involving the VAWA without that definition?
        It was a logical question to her. She also could not define when life begins. Maybe she will be in support of infanticide as a member of the court.

  4. Hey Lisa, remember the other time you rejected corrosive politicization and voted to confirm Kavanaugh?

    Yeah, me neither.

    Can’t wait to not vote for you.

    • Not true, she said “I do not hold a position on whether individuals possess natural rights,” I’m not sure how anyone, let alone a prospective Supreme Court Justice holds no position on that. Individuals possessing natural rights is foundational to this Country.

      • Exactly! Individual inalienable rights are what guarantees freedom and liberty. If your “rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” came from the state, then there is no freedom. The “state” (or those from the government) can just grant it or take it away to force your compliance (Covid shots anyone???). Government is supposed to work for the people not the other way around. A supreme court justice charged with interpreting the foundational document, who refuses to take a stand, should automatically be disqualified, not only for cowardice, but clear misunderstanding of the basic tenets she is to sit in judgement of.

        • Our God given natural rights include life, liberty, and property. A candidate for a seat on the Supreme Court falls far short of the necessary level of understanding if they can not explain these natural rights, or they equivocate on the matter.

          Lisa Murkowski turned her back on life, probably so she could enter into the circular funding cycle with Planned Parenthood, but regardless of why she has. She has also repeatedly shown contempt for our liberty with the legislation that she has voted to approve, often justified by the money that she could pilfer from federal coffers for HER constituency. Her vote FOR an individual that is willing to skewer the TRUTH in order to attain a position, speaks volumes on both of them.

          The Declaration of Independence was written into the face of lawmakers just like LM, and in beautiful prose states the TRUTH of the matter. “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

          Lisa, the cauldron burns hot. Add any more heat, and it boils over. When your turn in the RCV election comes, steal the vote if you like, but you are going to lose either way.

  5. Well dang, who coulda predicted this?!? 🤷‍♂️..besides every clear thinking Alaskan that’s seen her track record!?!..
    She never misses a chance to feather her bed with leftist votes. Lisa’s made up PC rationalization aside, she voted for confirmation because Jackson is a minority..”first black woman” and all that.

  6. It is NOT a stretch that Lisa would support a judge that is soft on pedophilia. Anyone that supports babies, little tiny helpless human beings, being murdered up to birth, is not likely to stand in defense of the children that grow from the babies that miraculously run that heinous gauntlet. Why would that be Lisa? Why? How are you planning to square this with God Lisa? The answer is clear: you gave up being concerned about that a long time ago.

    There is no legitimate justification in the eyes of a true christian. It is not possible.

    • Lisa Murkowski is morally corrupt. Once a person gets to that point, there is literally NOTHING preventing them from participating in EVERY other kind of corruption. Considering how long ago she made it to that point, it is no small wonder where else she has gone.

      Be that as it may, I am not the judge, just a witness.

      • This is utter nonsense. Neither Judge Jackson ñor Senator Murkowski us soft on pedophilia or morally corrupt. North has drunk the right wing Koolaide.

  7. LOL
    Why doesn’t she just change to the democrat party?
    …because she knows she will get the democrat’s vote anyway and still garner SOME of the republican’s vote if she stays “republican”
    Besides, she is quite comfortable in similar company among many republican senators who are just like her.

  8. Was there ever any doubt how “lovely” Lisa would vote? The DC sewer under leftist control only runs one way. “Downhill” for America/Alaska. Our “lovely” senator M is part of that flow. Time for the big ‘wipe’ for all things lisa. Our existence is at stake. She should run in NY, MA or OR or WA. More her style.

  9. And now I wonder if her own children were abused by her! It’s obvious she doesn’t like them! I guess that the money the Democrats give her make up for her indiscretions toward babies and children!

    • We are a Catholic family and raised Lisa better than this. Where did we go so wrong, Frankie?
      She supports the “lock-up all the land” Deb Haaland. She tried to deny Brett Kavenaugh. Now she is supporting this judge who let’s child molesters off easy and preaches critical race theory as though it was written into the bible. Lisa is a radical, Lefty Democrat’s dream. But she is our nightmare child.

  10. Sick, sick women. Both of them!
    Anyone who votes for either of those women are sickos too!
    Tired of Lisa she doesn’t represent Alaskans.

  11. This RINOcrat “woman” will not be on my final four this November. “Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.””

  12. Murkowski is neither Republican or Democrat. She is a pure politician and continuously panders to the urban voter concentrations in Anchorage, Juneau, and west side Fairbanks.

    Her obvious only real interest is remaining Senator Murkowski. Lacking any real Democrat opponent, she intends to attract any Alaska D voters out there, the D leaning independents, and any R voters that just aren’t paying attention.

    So, is she out to serve Alaska? No. Lisa is out to serve Lisa. This is what you get when you get politics as the family business.

  13. Is anyone surprised? She has disappointed Alaskans time after time! Time for her lose her seat. Apparently releasing sex offenders doesn’t matter to her. Time for her to go! GO KELLY TSHBAKA!

    • Auto zone, an excellent choice? For what purpose? I submit that ostensibly Jackson was picked because of her skin color and gender. Joe Biden even said as much. Strange how she is unable to define the latter qualification however.
      In reality, Jackson was selected because she holds views contrary to the Constitution. You are good with that, right? I wonder how that works out for you.

  14. Dang, and here I took the time to e-mail ” Daddies Little Princess” just today asking her to be a no vote on Judge Jackson.
    At least Lisa is consistent. No pretense with her, she always goes the wrong way.

  15. I never vote for anyone who hyphenates their name regardless of party. Those people are nothing but trouble in the workplace and usually disasters in public service. Who’s really surprised Lisa is voting for her? What I’m waiting for is Sullivan to write a nice rationalization like he did with Haaland. Clutching his purse and saying “oh I thought she would have a conversation with Alaskans”. Idiots.

      • Any person that hyphenates either their name or identity cannot identify as an individual.

        There is no such thing as a ‘whatever’-American.

        There is only an American.

        There is no such thing as a surname-surname.

        There is only a surname assigned to the individual from birth, based upon their birthright identity.

  16. Auto Zone, YOU ARE A SICK PUPPY. No surprise the Princess would vote to confirm The RINO’s strike again But notice she went against the Strategic oil Reserve TIME TO GO PRINCESS

    • In one way, it’s not an historic first.

      Barry Soetoro (Obama) was the first to blatantly make a racist and sexist nomination of the “wise Latina” to the SCOTUS.

  17. Well she’s for Infanticide and Pedophilia………….so of course Murkowski will vote for her.

  18. Of course she’s going to vote to confirm a radical leftist to SCOTUS. When was the last time she cast a vote looking out for the interests and views of Alaskans?

  19. I am SHOCKED, SHOCKED I tell you, that the sun shall most likely rise tomorrow!!!

    Oh, and that Lisa voted the way of the abject Democrat that she is…. sigh…. when has she not ever done so?

    One must wonder the why of Lisa’s voting processes beyond her political stance, hence weakness, as it is somehow always some sort of self-perceived self-strength or payback for personal pain garnered by her within her past or current life…it is certainly NOT of any critical thinking ability…

    Ah, well…Lisa will be Lisa, and vote as such, as unto the time whereas Lisa has been finally retired, and unable to foment her pathetic personal experiences as a matter of influence within such, and simply goes away, never to be heard from again…

    A moment that cannot come soon enough for the citizens of Alaska…

  20. I look forward to Justice Jackson serving a long and successful term on the Supreme Court. I also look forward to Sen. Murkowski’s re-election, which is virtually assured. Kelly Tsibaka is a nut job who believes the big lie that Trump won in 2020, and who claims to speak in tongues to God. ‘https://youtu.be/cyXaBVDDCPY She is a loony tune.

    • Rick : Although I would never vote for Murkowski for her pretending to be a Catholic and a Republican and voting the way she does.
      I agree with you, she will be reelected. Politicians on both sides now a days are more interested in Power and money than what is morally right Tell me how you are worth over $300 million when a Senator’s salary is $176.000 YEAR. like Pelosi?? or many more millions like the Bidens??

    • Rick, aka “Auto zone”, do you have any other alter egos on here?

      BTW – thanks for the link affirming that KT is definitely NOT in league with the devil. I had missed that. Now if you don’t mind, kindly send me something that proves that Lisa Murkowski is not in league with the devil. That’s right, I just asked you to be the devil’s advocate.

  21. If Jackson cannot even answer what a woman is, how can she judge what is constitutional and what is leftist deception? As for Lisa worshipping Jackson, of course she will vote her in to control the narrative to lean left the same way Lisa does.

  22. Constantly and continuously complaining about “the process” gets really old, and not to mention childish. It appears more and more like the Senator wants to find excuses for making tough decisions. The votes are tough because people have figured out that the results matter and that the Left has largely “captured” the judicial branch. I fear that those of us remaining in Alaska will see and feel the adverse effects of this appointment sooner than we would like.

  23. With sexual assault and Pedo behavior in this state, I am surprised Murkowski’s phone lines aren’t smoking hot with calls.
    This whole sorry scenario is the very definition of a Worthless Administration.
    If you had a victim in your family, you would be as mad as I am. This is a disgrace!

  24. I often wonder about all these comments from people using an “alias” instead of their real name. They can say anything and still remain anonymous. What are they afraid of?

      • Bring them on North.

        I will never post anything that I would not personally hold unto outside of my work environment, as work is work, and separate from everything else within my life.

        Let the ‘Bolshevists’ come at me, in whatever manner they choose to do so, as I fear them not, being the cowards that they are, and are no match for my own convictions.

        I stand by my name.

        Will they do likewise?

  25. Lisa she does not have an opinion on rights under the constitution?? What the holy heck are you thinking Murkowski! Trying to sell our country to the leftists radicals! Shame shame shame on you! I can see Susan Collins and Romney who are not even remotely Republicans but closet leftists!! It has nothing whatsoever about her color or her being a woman it has to do with is she qualified and after listening to her statements during the questioning by both sides—-that would be a gigantic NO

  26. Ignore the “R” next to her name, Murkowski is a leftist lunatic that keeps getting elected because conservatives just sit in the bar and complain about how messed up she is then neglect to get out and vote. If you’re too lame to vote don’t cry about the results. You get the government you deserve.

  27. Tom Boutin wrote a piece in MRAK a few weeks back that said Murkowski is the best we can do for a Republican candidate. As I read Tom’s article, which was based primarily on her support for gun rights, I couldn’t help thinking of all the instances over the past several years that Lisa was a key swing vote against conservative and Republican interests. Politicians like Murkowski count on voters having short memories – my hope is that conservative-minded Alaskans use this example of deceit to rank her dead last. We can do better than Murkowski.

  28. I didn’t think it possible but Lisa Murkowski has now sunk to a new low! She has now placed her seal of approval on a Judge that protects pedophiles, sexual predators and terrorists. On top of this, she has no idea what a Woman is. Murkowski with the other RINO clowns Snow and Romney have now placed a stake at the heart of our Constitution and the rule of law. On top of this, they have endangered every child and woman in this country by placing a dangerous radical on the highest court in the land. This is a planned and plotted assignment to protect those in our government that have aided human sex trafficking through their policies. If you haven’t awakened to the sheer evil within our government, this is a wake up call.
