Trump-Backed Alaska Republican Sarah Palin
Issues Stunning Statement Following Loss
In State’s First Ranked-Choice Election

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 9/9/2022 12:41:12 PM

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has blasted the state’s new “ranked-choice” voting system following her loss in the state’s first election conducted with this system. Palin and republican candidate Nick Begich had both lost to Democratic Candidate Mary. The former governor released a statement this week as she lashed out at the voting system and her fellow republican candidate, Nick Begich. Palin claims Begich is to be faulted for costing the Republicans the Ione seat. She also told him to drop out of the race and cause no further harm as they are both supposed to face Peltola again in November.

Voting is voting. Sorry Sarah, I've always been a huge fan but the voting system isn't your problem. If it was standard voting all those people who didn't check your name second simply wouldn't have voted for you at all or worse would have voted for the other guy as some did in the ranked choice system. You're my first choice but not the anything choice for too many in your state.

#1 - Sorry, but you are dead wrong. Ranked voting is intended to either elect (1) Democrats or (2) Wishy-washy moderate Republicans. It eliminates the stark contrast in the general election. We have primaries for a reason.

Ranked choice voting is a scam. The better idea is to have runoff elections if a candidate does not reach the required margin (be it 50%+1 or whatever is set by law). Yeah, so what if there is a second election. Even when you go to the ice cream shop and want to get a single dip cone, you have to choose one flavor. Yeah, there might be a whole lot of good choices, but if there can only be one scoop on the cone, you gotta make a choice.

Correct me if I am wrong. If this were a three way race, no ranked voting, the Democrat still wins. The problem was two Republicans running in the election splitting the voting letting the Democrat win. Knowing the Republican party and Washinton, it was probably intentional. Trump isn't the only one that Washington hates.

I don't like their new system, but would note that it measured the strength of the opposition of voters to her.

Good for her. Notice Begich's response, going after her the way he did. You can tell he's been raised in a Democrat political family dynasty and is only running as a Republican so he can win or elect another Democrat.

Beltway republicans and the republican swamp see small state seats as placeholders for the national big government agenda and they don't need no rogue elephants like Palin blowing up dams by you know, representing her consituency. So via Murkowski, another Beltway resident who mails a postcard from Alaska from time to time to demonstrate her heartful concern, we brought in the DC regulars to formulate another clever way to control the outcome and protect beltway favorites. I"m disappointed Palin didn't see this coming,

Fun to see the Palin-haters still around after all of these years. Still trying to create the illusion that McCain lost because of Sarah? Walk away from the wreckage of that burning wreck of an argument. McCain lost because he was a HORRIBLE candidate (as proven by his subsequent record) and she is the only reason he didn't get shellacked even worse than he did. No, " a vote is a vote" is an obvious falsehood in light of the "ranked voting" cheat. Here's how the math plays out. In a theoretical ranked vote, let's say 40% goes to the Democrat and 60% goes to the 2 Republicans. The Democrat wins but the interesting part is in the breakdown of the Republican voters and their ranks. The principled conservative (that is the ACTUAL conservative) votes first for the principled conservative candidate and 2nd for the RINO because, after all, they're fellow Republicans and there's a guiding platform, etc.. On the other hand, the RINO votes for the RINO first and the Democrat second because, after all, we CAN'T let those principled conservatives to gain control of the apparatus of government. They might dismantle the big-government, globalist leviathan we've been building for more than a century. The Democrat votes first for the Democrat then for the RINO because, after all, the RINO will bend over backward to adopt the Democrat agenda for the cause of "bipartisanship" and "unity." How do we know this? It has been on display for decades in state and local elections where principled conservatives somehow win primaries despite the RINO political machines pulling out all of the stops to sink the principled conservative candidate. They then openly both support and even raise money for and endorse the Democratic candidate because, after all, in order to preserve "bipartisanship" and "unity" and to protect leviathan this becomes a matter of absolute necessity. Later, they will blame the principled conservative for the loss and demand new party rules to ensure that the "extremists" can't win any more primaries. Then they will scream from the rooftops that principled conservatives MUST support Democrat-lite RINO's and blame them when they vote 3rd party or not at all when the RINO's nominate these candidates and they inevitably lose. Nope, a "vote is definitely NOT a vote" when ranked voting is involved

Ranked choice voting and runoff elections are both designed to elect Democrats and pliable, moderate Republicans. In ranked choice voting, a watered down Democrat candidate can gain election through being a consistent second choice, and the financing for a runoff race doesn't favor an upstart winner whom the establishment doesn't like. What's so magical about gaining fifty percent of the vote. Numerous elections favor the bad guys.

There are moderate Repubs who don't like Sarah, voted for Begich and put the Dem, Peltola, as their second choice on what the rcv turned into an open primary. I don't agree with their distaste of Sarah to the point of cutting off their noses to spite their faces. She is more in line with conservative values than Begich. Begich voted for Anchorage mayor Ethan Berkowitz, who left office after having been discovered in an illicit affair with a newswoman. Berkowitz and his cronies in the Anchorage Assembly were misusing Covid funds and setting covid restaurant regulations to benefit properties he owned, yet persecuting a local eatery with fines. Begich's support of Berkowitz should be sufficient reason to not vote for Begich; either very poor judgment or outright Dem in his heart. As for Sarah being a quitter, I ask folks who used to support and now loathe her: "What would you have done in her shoes?" Not only Sarah, but her staff were inundated with malicious and capricious lawsuits, taking away from their work time and gumming up the flow of her office. Ex: Sarah wore an Arctic Cat (brand of snowmachine) jacket to watch her husband compete in a snowmachine race. Suit was brought against her for that. Ridiculous! Everyone and their dog up here has name brand gear. No one has ever given me a sensible alternative to what she did, step down and let her simpatico Lieutenant Gov. take her place. I don't think Sarah is perfect, but I do believe she has the heart of a servant to the people...much more so than Begich. Asking Begich to step down is just finally voicing out loud what many of us up here believe. But we have our Mitch McConnell good old boys/rinos up here as elsewhere, so they'll keep working against the most conservative of our choices and see where that gets all of us. meh

Sadly this site is no different than the USA voter base. Some people are too thick or too thin to understand the trouble we are in. Too many of them for this country to stop the collapse. Combine a really dopey reality view with overt and hidden cheating and there is no way reformers get any power. All the checks and balances have been corrupted and are controlled by forces that are breaking into your house, your life at will, throwing you in prison without a trial for as long as they want, and swiftly destroying life's essentials, for you, not for them.

No, a thousand times no. There is absolutely nothing about rcv that makes a rino voter out the D as their second choice which is what a lot of them did. If you think people who voted Rino 1 and Dem 2 were ever going to vote for her under any circumstances you're delusional because the fact is they didn't. There were 3 parties on the ballot, Dem, rino and MAGA. The Dem+rino added up to more than MAGA. That's why she lost. There was no voting method under which she would have won. She did not have enough support. Cry all you like about rcv. The proven mathematical fact is not enough people from her state liked her. I have always liked her. I like her today. Not enough others do so she lost.

Here’s something you’ll probably never see again in your lifetime. During a college football game Saturday between the LSU Tigers and Southern Jaguars, a young LSU fan casually strolled out into the field right in the middle of a play. He proceeded to watch the play without a single care in the world. About 15 seconds into his bizarre watch-fest, a police officer began approaching the fan. In response, he turned around and then just stood there staring at the officer. Once the officer reached him, the officer then proceeded to put his hands on the fan, prompting the fan to start acting like a criminal resisting arrest.

Joe Biden paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II during a speech commemorating the September 11th terrorist attacks – and told Americans that they 'owe it' to victims and survivors to stand up for democracy. The president also attempted to earn redemption points during the most unifying annual event in the U.S. after insulting all Trump supporters earlier this month by insinuating in a speech they are a threat to American democracy. During remarks at the Pentagon on Sunday, just three days after Queen Elizabeth's death, Biden quoted the monarch by saying: 'Grief is a price we pay for love.'

LONDON— For many people around the world, the word corgi is forever linked to Queen Elizabeth II. Princess Diana once called them a “moving carpet” always by her mother-in-law’s side. Stubby, fluffy little dogs with a high-pitched bark, corgis were the late queen’s constant companions since she was a child. She owned nearly 30 throughout her life, and they enjoyed a life of privilege fit for a royal pet. Elizabeth’s death last week has raised public concerns over who will care for her beloved dogs. Some speculate they will be sent off to live with other royal family members, while others say this task might be given to palace staff.

Former first lady Hillary Clinton was put on the spot when Bravo host Andy Cohen asked what she’d want to ask Melania Trump, who moved into the White House 16 years after Clinton and her husband moved out. In a “Watch What Happens Live” segment called “Host Talkative,” Cohen began by showing a photo of the 45th president’s wife. Clinton was asked to ask the first thing that came to mind. “Ummm... How’s your summer going?” Clinton asked. The quick reply got a chuckle from the show’s host as well as the former Secretary of State Clinton’s daughter Chelsea, who was also on stage in the show that aired Thursday.

Dear Steve, You ask why doctors are silent. The electronic medical records (EMRs) are a ball and chain to physicians. We are tracked through them. When I wrote a prescription for Ivermectin for a patient, with informed consent (she was vaccinated), I received 5 letters threatening my medical license, my hospital privileges, and my insurance contracts. I would not have received 5 letters if I killed someone in negligence or malpractice. If I have my license pulled, I will no longer be able to help my patients. I speak to patients on a one-on-one basis, but speaking out would destroy my family.

NEW YORK — Payment processor Visa Inc. said Saturday that it plans to start separately categorizing sales at gun shops, a major win for gun control advocates who say it will help better track suspicious surges of gun sales that could be a prelude to a mass shooting. But the decision by Visa, the world’s largest payment processor, will likely provoke the ire of gun rights advocates and gun lobbyists, who have argued that categorizing gun sales would unfairly flag an industry when most sales do not lead to mass shootings. It joins Mastercard and American Express, which also said they plan to move forward with categorizing gun shop sales.
