During every election cycle, it’s the same old story. Democrats and RINO Republicans make every effort to hide their liberal records in order to fool the electorate into believing they are a different person then who they actually are. Of course, once elected, they do exactly that opposite of what the people elected them to do. There is no wonder that Congress has one of the lowest approval ratings in history and that the average person is fed up with politicians and the political process.
This year’s US Senate race in Alaska is no different. There are two millionaire establishment candidates, Dan Sullivan and Mead Treadwell, running against one middle class constitutional conservative in Joe Miller.

However, listening to the TV and radio ads of the two establishment candidates, you would think Sullivan and Treadwell were tea party conservatives. Beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing.
What these wolves are not telling the electorate is that they both blocked a pro-life initiative from the ballot (not even allowing citizens to vote on the issue), they both promote the manmade global warming agenda, are against voter ID, favor some sort of amnesty for illegal aliens, and favor a United Nations tax and regulation (Law of the Sea Treaty).
Sullivan and Treadwell have already proved that they can under no circumstance be trusted, and that they could care less what Republicans and independents in Alaska want.
Both of them ignored the will of the people in 2010 when they did not support the Republican nominee and joined with Democrats to help elect liberal RINO Lisa Murkowsi, who has voted with Obama 72% of the time. Sullivan and Treadwell are good friends with Murkowski; so you can bet that if either one of them end up in office, Alaska will have liberal Lisa for life.

Both politicians have deep establishment ties; and their loyalty is to the elite they hobnob with and who finance them, not to everyday working Alaskans.
Being a minister, my biggest pet peeve is when politicians use religious jargon to fool people into believing they are someone they are not.
For example, Treadwell has been throwing out religious jargon like “creator” and asking people to “pray” for him in the guise of humility. Meanwhile, he arrogantly refuses to admit he had made a mistake by supporting liberal Lisa and has even doubled down by already financially contributing to her 2016 re-election campaign.
He has also personally boasted to me that he travelled to Israel last year on an extended trip with his long time girlfriend, who happens to be pro-abortion and a registered Democrat. Meanwhile, he has been spreading false rumors in a whisper campaign to me and others (I have recorded evidence) about Joe Miller, which I later discovered to be outright lies. As Lt. Governor, on July 12, 2012, Treadwell drafted and quietly signed a law allowing people to change their gender on a driver’s license in a move celebrated by the transgender and transvestite community. Treadwell certainly does need prayer because he needs to repent.
Perhaps the two establishment candidates ought to read how God describes those who gossip, lie, and sow discord.
Another pet peeve I have is when those who claim to be a conservative use a play from the liberal playbook and try to emotionally manipulate the electorate.
For example, Treadwell justifies his support for liberal Lisa by stating that she was the very first person who called him when his wife died many years ago. Call me a skeptic, but I find that highly unlikely. He also uses the ploy that he is grateful his single mother did not abort him in 1956 when abortion wasn’t even legal. Single mother or not, all of us who are alive are grateful our mothers did not abort us. His emotional ploys do not work for those who are smart enough to realize that there is no excuse to justify helping elect a liberal.
I thank God there is someone running in the US Senate race in Alaska who is as genuine as they come. Someone who knows what it means to represent the people because he has no establishment ties, who has integrity, deep moral conviction, and the fortitude to do in Washington DC exactly what he says. His values, record, and words have never changed; and his message is one of true conservatism.
Recently, on July 3rd, one of the most listened-to talk show radio hosts in Alaska, Dan Fagan, summed up the US Senate race nicely: “Joe (Miller) you are my kind of politician. You are committed. You are a constitutional conservative. You are as much like the founding fathers than any other candidate we have ever had in this state… I believe in you.”
He continued, “I think you would make an outstanding Senator. I think if we had more people like you this country would turn around much quicker as opposed to more of the establishment Republicans.”
Thank you, Dan Fagan. I couldn’t have said it better myself. As the song says, “Let Joe do it. Joe Miller is the one.”
