2022: Sarah Palin Hints At Future Senate Run Against Murkowski

This is a huge development

Published

on

Following Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s “no” vote on the motion to proceed on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation, Sarah Palin hinted at a future Senate run.

Taking her shot on Twitter, the former Governor of Alaska stated that she can see 2022 from her house.

The Tweet is in reference to a quote misattributed to Palin, originating on an episode of Saturday Night Live.

If Palin were to run against Murkowski, the fight would happen in the Primary Election season, as Murkowski calls herself a Republican, despite voting like a Democrat oftentimes.

As governor of Alaska, Palin enjoyed remarkably high approval ratings of upwards of 93%. This makes her possible run worrying for Murkowski, who is one of America’s least liked Senators.

Murkowski’s no vote comes in response to multiple un-corroborated sexual misconduct allegations laid against Judge Kavanaugh. Despite her opposition, Kavanaugh is expected to be confirmed over the weekend.

If this race occurs, it won’t be the first time Palin and Murkowski have fought against each-other in a Primary Election. While Palin has never faced her on her own, she supported her primary challenger in 2010, who narrowly lost.

A lot will play into a 2022 challenge. Most prominently will be President Donald Trump reelection campaign in 2020.

Trump would likely support a Palin primary challenge, giving her a major boost, especially if he’s still in the White House.

Arizona’s Paul Gosar Proposes Amending Coronavirus Package to Replace Pork with $10,000 Stimulus Checks

Gosar wants direct aid to the American people.

Published

Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona has proposed that the federal government pay stimulus checks of $10,000 to Americans beleaguered by the coronavirus pandemic, adopting an approach that would prioritize direct payments to individuals over payments to state and local governments. Gosar’s Amendment, offered on Friday night, would also replace payments to extend federal unemployment benefits.

As the American Rescue Plan currently stands, $1,400 stimulus checks to American taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in income in 2018 make up $422 billion- a mere 22% of the total spending in the relief package. Gosar’s proposal would replace much of the questionable spending with direct relief.

If the federal government intends to go ‘all-in’ on deficit spending in response to the coronavirus recession, Gosar’s proposal would ensure that the money is spent directly on the livelihood of American taxpayers. Less than half of the spending of Biden’s stimulus is directly targeted towards taxpayers, with education, energy, transport and state governments receiving almost as much money as the American people under Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan.

Biden’s pork proposal can easily be retooled to prioritize direct spending to Americans, be it in the shape of stimulus checks or buffed unemployment benefits to Americans who have lost their jobs in the recession. Instead, the establishment Democrat has opted to prioritize payments to powerful lobby groups and corporate institutions.

The American Rescue Plan passed the House in a Friday night vote. Should the massive spending package fail to pass the Senate in budget reconciliation, congressional leaders may be left with no choice but to consider proposals such as Gosar that replace federal spending with direct relief to the American people.
