Tshibaka says Murkowski put up more of a fight against Trump’s court nominee’s than against Brown-Jackson

After Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski announced she’ll be a yes vote on Judge Ketanji Brown-Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court, her opponent Kelly Tshibaka said Murkowski is once again catering to the radical left.

“The long guessing game is over, and the unsurprising answer is that Lisa Murkowski is supporting a leftist judicial nominee who will write legislation from the bench and have the very real potential for harming Alaska for decades to come. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson will have Murkowski’s vote, which is far more than solid conservative Justice Brett Kavanaugh ever got. In fact, Murkowski’s vote to discharge the Judiciary Committee and put Judge Jackson’s nomination before the full Senate is more respect than she gave Justice Amy Coney Barrett, whose very nomination she opposed in the first place.”

“Add this to the growing list of votes that fly in the face of the views of most Alaskans. There can be no question that with every failure of the Biden administration, Murkowski takes greater ownership of it. She has voted to confirm over 90 percent of his cabinet nominees, and now she has given her support to a judge who has been lenient on child sex abusers, cannot define what a woman is, and does not acknowledge the natural rights of people as delineated in the Declaration of Independence. With Justice Jackson on the Supreme Court, will there be any justice for women or children?” Tshibaka said, adding that when she’s senator, she’ll only support strong, constitutionally minded nominees for the court.

Jackson famously answered a question during her Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that has been mocked ever since.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., asked Jackson: “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?” 

Jackson fumbled for an answer and said, “I’m not a biologist.” 

Blackburn then poked at that answer, saying, “the fact that you can’t give me a straight answer about something as fundamental as what a woman is underscores the dangers of the kind of progressive education that we are hearing about.”

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 11-11. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he would vote against the nomination of Jackson. Last week, he said, “I think all indications are that Judge Jackson is going to be a liberal activist from the bench. But the good news for people like me, is the Court is still 6-3.”

In a procedural vote Monday, every Democrat and three Republicans – Susan Collins of Maine, Mitt Romney of Utah and Murkowski – voted to advance her nomination.

  1. I watched the memorial of Don Young in DC…both of them. The spouse of Dan Sullivan..Julie…was there…but I didn’t know if the man sitting next to Murkowski is her husband or her father. I mention her father because he served Alaska years ago. Does anybody know?

  2. So, when a hunter is confronted by fish and game after shooting a cow moose, he should reply, “ what am l, a biologist?”.

  3. Ha ha she nailed you Lisa , team Alaska team Kelly. Bring a box Lisa. Thank you Suzann oath integrity for Alaskans soon.

  4. Joe Biden promised to appoint a “Black Woman” to SCOTUS. How bewildered he must now be since his selected nominee cannot define what a woman is? No wonder Hunter’s Daddy always looks confused.

  5. It certainly is something to behold Lisa Murkowski “upholding and defending the Constitution”…

  6. Sometimes we say yes to a person and sometimes we say no to a person. Doesn’t matter what color they are. Only if they are right for the job. Clarence Thomas was a yes. Ketangi-Brown is a no.

    • Nailed it. I could not care one whit less about Ketanji Brown Jackson’s skin color, gender or identity, but I definitely care about her record on the bench. I will NOT EVER give another vote to any Senator who votes to confirm this nominee to SCOTUS (I’m talking to you, Sen. Murkowski!).

  7. All Tshibaka can do is bitch. Nothing positive, no vision, little credibility. She’s 100% grifter.

    • I’ll just bet you’re a Lisa fan. Do you know the difference between a boy and a girl? Are you a biologist?

    • Not being Princess is very positive.

      Did you feel the same when grandpa dementia Biden hid in his basement and ran on not being Trump?

  8. Hasn’t anyone heard of separation of state??? The courts do NOT write legislation and any legislation has to be approved by the House and Senate! The unqualified one is that Catholic witch TheRUMP railroaded in there!

  9. Senator Blackburn does not know the difference between Nordstream I and Nordstream II and claimed Russia was getting revenue from an empty pipeline. Not sure I would count on her intellect for any kind of decision.

  10. With this latest example of support for leftist ideology, Lisa deserves to get ranked dead last by every conservative-minded Alaskan. The headline should read, “Not only did she lose, she came in last place.” Let’s emphatically show her the door.

  11. Only way Sen. Lisa Murkowski can win is if she cheats during this up-coming election. Both the Republicans and Democrats want nothing to do with her. Considering we had 11% more voters then eligible voters during last election the future election does not look good. Nick Begich sounds like another Lisa Murkowski pretending to be conservative when they vote entirely for Totalitarian government.
