“Disturbed” Lisa Murkowski Typical Republican Squish

Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) gave an interview to NBC Alaska affiliate KTUU in which she claimed to be “disturbed” by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s plan to coordinate with the White House on the Impeachment Trial of President Donald Trump. By this action, she has proved herself a typical Republican squish. The kind of squish who has sold out Republican ideals for decades.

Before we discuss the KTUU interview, let’s take a look at the background of Lisa Murkowski. She is currently in her third full, six year term. She fulfilled the term of her father in 2002. He resigned from the Senate after he won the race for Governor of Alaska, and he appointed his little girl to his seat. That has got to be in the Top Five of things I despise in our political system. So, that’s strike one against Murkowski.

Lisa Murkowski voted “No” on elevating Judge (now Justice) Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Think back to those medieval days of the Kavanaugh hearings. Only some type of myopic, radical feminist and/or agenda-driven liberal could believe Blasey-Ford’s sketchy claims against Brett Kavanaugh. Here is a portion of the statement that Murkowski read regarding her vote against Kavanaugh:

This hasn’t been fair to the judge, but I also recognize that we need to have institutions that are viewed as fair and if people who are victims, people who feel that there is no fairness in our system of government, particularly in our courts, then you’ve gone down a path that is not good and right for this country. And so I have been wrestling with whether or not this was about qualifications of a good man or is this bigger than the nomination.

And I believe we’re dealing with issues right now that are bigger than the nominee and how we ensure fairness and how our legislative and judicial branch can continue to be respected. This is what I have been wrestling with, and so I made the — took the very difficult vote that I did.

That statement has got to be Olympian in the amount of excrement extruded. In order for any institution to be seen as fair, it has got to be blind to anything but the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Lisa Murkowski had to know the provenance of the claims against Justice Kavanaugh. She listened to the fake emotions and obfuscations of Blasey-Ford, and still voted no and issued this statement. Strike two against, Senator Murkowski.

Which leads us to the current squishy disturbance in the force for Miss Murkowski. As with Kavanaugh, Murkowski has got to have some clue that her Democrat “colleagues” have been trying to rid themselves of President Trump since November, 2016. She can read the transcript of the call with Zelensky that began this latest fracas. President Trump wasn’t asking for a personal favor in the transcript. The “quid pro quo” section asked President Zelensky to do “us” a favor. I think the Bidens’ have been grifting off of Joe’s government positions for decades. If anyone commits a crime, all he has to do is run for public office and avoid scrutiny. The Alaska Senator has got to know all of this. Unless, of course, she doesn’t read news accounts, didn’t watch the House hearings, and never talks to any of her fellow Senators.

Her statement to KTUU reads:

“And in fairness, when I heard that I was disturbed,” Murkowski said before describing that there should be distance between the White House and the Senate in how the trial is conducted. “To me it means that we have to take that step back from being hand in glove with the defense, and so I heard what leader McConnell had said, I happened to think that that has further confused the process.”

McConnell “further confused the process”? Our Republic, our electoral system, our Constitution has been under attack by the Democrats for decades. It is finally coming to a head, and Lisa Murkowski thinks McConnell coordinating with the White House “confused the process”.

Senator Murkowski addressed her squishiness with Katie Couric in 2010:

We, in the Republican Party, don’t need any more RINOs, Sunshine Patriots or squishes. We need people willing to stand-up and shout “No” to the forces, Russian, Ukrainian, Chinese, and internal, which are trying to divide us.

Three strikes and you are out, Senator. From here on out, squishes need not apply.

    Strike two against, Senator Murkowski
    Wow, you’re leaving out a lot of strikes – at least foul balls – in between those two. She’s pro-choice, pro-illegal immigration, and pro-telling-private-businesses-what-they-must-do. She pulled a stunt of voting for Devos in committee, then voting against her in the full Senate.
    This woman is well past a strike-out, but Alaskans continue to vote for her anyway.

    It’s a good post.
    Now, tell me how we get rid of these squishes and how we get in people who respect and love the Constitution?

    McConnell should shut the Lisa Murhowskis, Romneys, Pelosis and Schumers in the Congress down. Let them get their evidence via leaks – like the Dems do it. Since there is no time limit on these impeachment actions, McConnell should wait to gavel the Senate in session until Durham has announced indictments OR at least wait until the first primary. Thereby, not receiving the impeachment papers. If she wants to play games – checkmate!
