Sarah Palin to Lisa Murkowski: “I Can See 2022 From My House.” Here’s What She Meant.

As the hellish confirmation process for Brett Kavanaugh finally draws to a close, the handful of Republicans who have said they will vote “no” on whether or not to confirm him to the Supreme Court have come forward to explain their reasoning.

Republican Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) gave a lengthy explanation on why she will not be voting for Kavanaugh on the floor of the Senate last night, which can basically be summed up as such: the last-ditch effort by Democrats to paint him as not having the right “temperament” for the job because of the way he defended himself after having his family’s name dragged through the mud with awful and false allegations was enough to convince Murkowski, for some reason.

Other Republican women who were not so convinced by this narrative are sending her a warning: watch out when you’re up for re-election.

The most famous Alaska Republican, Sarah Palin, offered her warning in the form of a humorous spin on a quote attributed to her from the 2008 election (which is really from an SNL sketch), The Washington Examiner reports:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin sent a warning Friday to Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, that she could face challengers in a primary race when she is up for re-election in 2022, a comment made after Murkowski was the only Republican to vote against advancing the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.

“Hey @LisaMurkowski – I can see 2022 from my house…” Palin tweeted, a reference to a “Saturday Night Live” skit where Tina Fey impersonated Palin and said, “I can see Russia from my house.”

Palin’s warning was joined by Fox host Laura Ingraham:

“I like Alaska…a lot. Maybe it’s time to run for Senate after all,” Ingraham tweeted Friday morning. “@lisamurkowski has abandoned all principles of due process and fairness. Disgraceful. “#ConfirmKavanaugh.”

“I like Alaska…a lot. Maybe it’s time to run for Senate after all,” Ingraham tweeted Friday morning. “@lisamurkowski has abandoned all principles of due process and fairness. Disgraceful. “#ConfirmKavanaugh.”

Murkowski has little reason to vote against Kavanaugh, and these women are likely correct that it won’t reflect well on her when she’s up for re-election.

The Democrats have clearly attempted a carefully crafted character assassination against Kavanaugh for political reasons, but their cards are showing now that it’s failed. To bend to their influence is a mistake for any Republican.

Promise Broken: 60 Percent of Americans Will Suffer Tax Hike Under Biden’s Plan

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan.

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan. We are now seeing that Biden lied. The Tax Policy Center released new data on the realities of Biden’s tax proposals and found that Biden’s policies will slam middle and low-income taxpayers right where it hurts. The organization says that 99.8 percent of Americans earning between $500,00 and $1million will pay an average of $8,810 more in taxes each year under Biden’s tax plan. This might be in keeping with Biden’s campaign pledge that only “the rich” will pay more. But the TPC also found that people who make far less will also get hit under Biden. The center says that people making between $75,000 and $500,00 will also get pinched. This is not as a result of direct taxes on income but of the impact of the other hikes in rates, such as the corporate tax rise. According to the Daily Mail: Three-quarters of households earning between $75,000 and $100,000 annually would face paying an additional $440 per year in taxes under Biden’s tax hikes, according to the data released last week. About 69 percent of those earning between $100,000 and $200,000 would see their yearly tax bill rise by $830 on average, according to the analysis. Meanwhile, 83.7 percent of those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 would see an increase of $2,040 on average. But most Americans will be impacted indirectly by Biden’s giant tax hike. “For those looking to see if Biden kept his promise to not raise taxes for those making $400,000 or less, the answer is: Mostly, but not entirely,” wrote Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center. “Including corporate tax increases, most households would pay more in 2022. About three-quarters…

N.J. School District Reverses Decision to Delete Holiday Names after Massive Backlash

A left-wing New Jersey school district has been forced to reverse its decision to delete holiday names from school calendars.

A left-wing New Jersey school district has been forced to reverse its decision to delete holiday names from school calendars after a massive backlash from the community. Last week, the Randolph Board of Education decided to delete the names of all school holidays because names like “Christmas” were too divisive. But after a backlash from the community, the district reversed its ill-conceived policy. The district’s move came after they canceled Columbus Day and renamed it “Indigenous People’s Day.” But the discussion soon moved to the claim that all the holidays were racist and needed to be dealt with. By the June 10 meeting, the district decided to cancel all the holiday names and simply call them a “day off.” But on Monday, the board had to face the music. According to NJ.com: Following a nearly four-hour meeting Monday, which included public comment from about 50 people, the board voted 8-1 to adopt the motion to restore the calendar to the way it was before Columbus Day and the other holiday names were taken off. Members also voted to amend the motion so that it would include sending the calendar to a committee for review and to gain input on it from a community survey. The idea was proposed by board member Vernetha Hope Powell, who said she wanted to community to be involved in the process. Most members of the public who spoke during the meeting wanted to have the entire calendar changed back to the way it was, with a smaller group calling for only Columbus Day to be called something else, with one suggesting that it should be called “Italian Heritage Day.” “We live in a cancel culture and we are very sensitive to that and we don’t want to see that in Randolph,” one resident said during…
