So she is claiming vindication after saying that Alaska is Russian?

And this vindicates her somehow? And if she's been warning us about Russia for years, where was she when Trump was playing footsie with them? Wouldn't that have been a good time for a far right republican who thinks Russia is something we need to be warned about to make her voice heard? Oh, wait. That would require a functioning spine, genuine patriotism and the existence of a moral compass. Never mind.

Just how long collectively has she served in elected office? And part of that was as the mayor of a meth capital.

I think the earrings in that video alone should disqualify her for office.

I wonder if someone told her that she looked fabulous in those?

Yes Caribou Barbie, Lincoln is well known for his view that the executive branch wields too much power.
:roll:
Abraham Lincoln's Invention of Presidential War Powers: Facing the unprecedented crisis of civil war in 1861, President Abraham Lincoln invoked his "war power" as commander-in-chief to "take any measure which may best subdue the enemy." Defying the chief justice of the United States, he suspended the writ of habeas corpus by presidential decree. He also declared martial law, authorized the trial of civilians by military courts, and proclaimed the emancipation of slaves--all on the grounds that "I may in an emergency do things on military grounds which cannot be done constitutionally by Congress." In so doing, Lincoln vastly expanded presidential war powers and established precedents invoked by later presidents.

In fairness, "unconsitutional" means not constitutional. "Anti-constitutional" means against the constitution. There's some nuance there.

Not that nuance is in her wheelhouse.

The Gateway House of Boys is ANGRY! Jim Hoft is lashing out with a story that's poor even by their diminished standards.
Rank Choice Voting and Mail-In Ballots Debut in Deep Red Alaska Where Democrat May Now Steal US House Seat from Sarah Palin
By Jim Hoft
Published August 17, 2022 at 8:15am

Republicans in Alaska passed rank choice voting in 2020. This confusing system is only being pushed by RINOS and radicals in conservative red states. It allows Democrats to even the playing field when they have no chance of winning. Republicans also passed mail-in voting. As The Gateway Pundit reported back in May – Alaska is lost.

Last night Sarah Palin ran in two races in Alaska. The former governor ran in the 2022 primary race for US House of Representatives. She also ran in the special election to finish out Rep. Don Young’s term in the current US House of Representatives. Young died earlier this year. Sarah Palin may lose the election depending on who the third place challenger’s voters picked for their second choice.

How can this even be legal? Oh, and the race will not be decided until the end of the month because Republicans just passed mail-in voting! The RINOs just tossed Alaska to the Democrats! God save us from this Republican Party!

TPM attempted to explain the confusion in the Alaska elections this morning.
This is all a little confusing: There are two elections in play — both held Tuesday — along with a host of changes, implemented this year, to how Alaska conducts its elections, including a shift to ranked-choice. Here’s what you need to know.

Palin — along with Nicholas Begich, Republican scion of a major Alaskan Democratic family, and former state Rep. Mary Peltola, a Democrat who would be the first Alaska Native in the state’s congressional delegation — is competing to finish out the Young’s term in a special election. Independent Al Gross, who ran for Senate in 2020, also qualified for the general election but dropped out.

Voters have ranked their choices, but the winner won’t be clear until at least the end of August as mail-in ballots trickle in and officials tally the votes.

On Wednesday morning, with an estimated 69 percent of ballots tallied, Peltola had 37 percent of the vote in this race. Palin had 32 percent, and Begich had 28 percent.

Because no candidate surpassed 50 percent, the third-place candidate will be eliminated once all ballots are tallied. That person’s votes will be redistributed to whichever candidate his or her voters ranked second.
As The Gateway Pundit reported in March, Alaska will move to mail-in voting. And at the same time they dropped signature verification on ballots. Republicans just gave the state away. How tragic. According to Joel Davidson at Alaska Watch:
Alaska’s Division of Elections will not verify the authenticity of voter signatures on the ballots cast in the upcoming June 11 special statewide primary to replace Rep. Don Young.

“There is no statutory authority to verify signatures, but voters will have to provide witness signatures,” a March 25 email from Alaska’s Division of Elections stated.

Since this will be the first time Alaska has ever conducted a statewide mail-in election, concerns have been raised about how the state will ensure that voters are who they claim to be.

Nationally, the most common way of verifying mail-in ballots is to have elections officials verify that a voter’s signature matches the signature on file with the division of elections.

The state won’t pass bills that prevent voter fraud through the verification of signatures.
Multiple bills have been introduced in the current legislative session to address voter integrity issues, including voter signature verification, but they have languished in various House and Senate committee assignments. Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer submitted legislation to the current Legislature to address this issue, but his Senate Bill 167 has languished in the Senate State Affairs Committee since Jan. 18th with no movement. Several other bills dealing with voter signature verification have been introduced, including House Bill 96 by Gov. Mike Dunleavy. That bill has stalled in the House State Affairs Committee.

But there’s more… The Republican lawmakers managed to pass several new rules that ensure the state will be lost forever.

Seth Keshel reported:
Allow me to account for the most severe symptoms plaguing Alaska’s elections:

1) Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) automatic registration – On November 8, 2016, the same night Donald Trump was elected, Alaska’s voters approved Ballot Measure 1 (15PFVR), which automatically registers applicants for the PFD. The damage will be unveiled later in this article.

2) Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) – approved in 2020, and the first election using it will be run later in 2022 for the vacant U.S. House seat left behind by the deceased Don Young. Ranked Choice Voting allows a pathway for extreme candidates to supplant candidates who are most likely to be elected with strong pluralities, and practically entrenches incumbents in Democrat strongholds.

3) Experimentation with mail-in voting – as with RCV, mail-in voting will be the method for the U.S. House race coming later in 2022. With Alaska’s hostile climate and influence from west coast neighbors, it is only a matter of time until a full-on blitz begins to entrench mail-in voting.
These new rule changes will ensure the state becomes the next Oregon or California. And, once again, the national Republican Party was AWOL. They don’t really care. They did nothing. At what point do we all agree that the RNC is a subsidiary of the DNC?
Assuming Palin will ultimately win, Alaska is a red state. But Jim Hoft is hysterical. Lindsey Graham needs to share his smelling salts with Jim. :P

For the special election, Palin is currently in second, trailing Peltola (a Democrat) by 6 points. Due to ranked-choice voting, the eliminated candidates' votes (around 30% of the total) will be redistributed until one candidate has a majority. Although the third-place candidate, Begich, is a Republican, it is possible anti-Palin sentiment will have caused enough otherwise Republicans to vote for a Democrat (or just not ranked another candidate).

Which, ultimately, isn't that big of a deal because the term ends effectively in December. So GP is grousing about who gets to hold the title of incumbent for a few months. :yawn:

For the for next session's full-term seat, those three and another advanced to the general.

This would be friggin hilarious if Palin lost to a Democrat in Alaska. :thumbsup:

Dave Wasserman @Redistrict 1h
The even better news for Dems tonight is that Mary Peltola's (D) lead over Sarah Palin (R) in the #AKAL special election just stretched to over 13k votes, giving Peltola a better chance of winning when Nick Begich's (R) second-choice votes are tabulated next week.

If Begich voters mostly preference Palin, then she'll win.

How is that good for Peltola?

Has Begich been actively promoting that his voters preference Peltola?

Yeah, lemme do some FoghornMath® here. :think:

Vote totals:

Rep. 104,542 (49,456 + 55,086)
Dem. 68,280
Total: 172,822

So the winner needs 86,412 votes (50% plus one).

If'n everybody made a second choice (Narrator: That didn't happen), Peltola needs 18,132 of Begich's second choices, which is 37% of all Begich voters.

But I doubt that many Republican voters will use second choice to name a Democrat. We'll see. :bored:

Here's a lengthy and helpful article from KTOO on Aug 22, mentions Foggy's math and looks at the bitterness between the Palin and Begich campaigns. While now Begich is playing nice (he says he encouraged his supporters to pick Palin 2nd), during the voting period they were going after each other hard.

The article talks about the "exhausted" ballots, which are when folks only make a 1st choice, and apparently some more absentee ballots are still to be counted (which are probably D). Note Wasserman said above it was 397 of 402 Precincts Reported, and 98.76% of the vote counted.

You sure think it'd be Palin but hey, it's the land of Hunky Levi Johnston 🍆
How 26K+ votes left to be counted could impact the race to finish Don Young’s term
August 22, 2022 by Lisa Phu, Alaska Beacon

Begich is one of three listed candidates competing in the state’s first ranked-choice election. While it remains to be seen how the uncounted votes might shape final results, it’s highly unlikely third-place finisher Begich will overtake former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for second place. But how his voters completed the rest of the ballot could determine the winner. At least 26,400 votes are still left to be counted in the Aug. 16 election in Alaska. Democrat Mary Peltola currently leads the special general election race to fill the remainder of the late Congressman Don Young’s term with about 38% of the votes counted so far ranking her first. The remaining more than 60% of votes are mostly split between two Republican candidates.
***
On average, 30% of ballots in ranked choice voting elections nationwide are exhausted, Hockema said. On the lower end, around 15% of ballots were exhausted in the New York mayoral primary. “So somewhere between maybe 15 and 30% of Nick Begich’s voters are not going to get transferred to Palin. Maybe they will,” Hockema said, “but I think a lot of people are just going to not rank the second Republican because the energy between the campaigns is really, really bad.”
***
What Peltola’s campaign wants to see
Within the more than 26,000 votes still left to be counted, Peltola’s campaign wants to see the Democrat increase her lead. “The benchmark that I’ve been working on is, if we can hit 40% that really puts us in a good position for the next round of ranked choice voting,” said Burke Croft, data manager at Ship Creek Group, which is a contractor for the Peltola campaign. “We’re hoping to make sure we have a strong enough lead to be able to win when Begich’s votes get recycled to stay in that lead.” Croft said with absentee votes skewing progressive, Peltola has a good shot of hitting 40%. “If Peltola doesn’t get 40%, there’s still a chance that with Begich-Peltola votes or people who only ranked Begich, Peltola could still end up winning the race,” Croft said. The Division of Elections said the next results update will be on Tuesday. The ranked choice voting tabulation is not happening until Aug. 31, when final results will be available.
