Put Roy Moore Out of His Misery
American Spectator, by Arnold Steinberg

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 11/14/2017 9:09:46 AM

A generation ago a leading criminal defense attorney retained me to test arguments. The defendant — his client — was a California legislator accused of several counts of “unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor.” In California this previously was called statutory rape. My survey probed a sample of voters, drawn from the particular county’s likely juror universe. As I recount in my book Whiplash! From JFK to Donald Trump, a Political Odyssey, the most persuasive argument was that “the girls waited two years” before coming forward. Each day in the long trial the lawyer reprised what I predicted would be dispositive.

I am SOOO tired of this crap. This is a perennial tactic of the Donks--attack the morals of a good, Republican candidate. WHAT is the effing distinction between this and morals claims made against McCain (out side of the fact that Moore is actually far more ethical) or Gingrich (same) or Romney/Bush/insert name here. Why it might be that this time Moore is actually a principled man who only pursued a relationship in a civilized manner albeit with a younger person.

Other than that, I predict that once Moore is toast, which he soon will be if the GOP doesn´t grow a set, all of those aggrieved parties will fade into the woodwork... gee... as if this were ONLY a political tactic and not actual grievance over an impropriety. ONLY political; NOT impropriety.

Isn´t there a sharp Republican lawyer and some GOP friendly judges in Alabama who can pull a Toricelli and require the state to replace a loser (like the Joisey RATS did with Toricelli, whose actions revealed after the replacement date for candidates marked him as a sure loser which was not acceptable to Democrats) with a sure winner.

They brought the Laut (Frank Laughtenberg) out of retirement for the gig. We could bring Sessions back, or maybe Mo Brooks.

I know we Republicans screamed and hollered about the illegality and screw job done, but I´ve given up trying to play by Marquis of Queensbury rules with Democrat anarchists and their media whores.

Let´s use their games against them.

Have no idea how much is true and how much is Democrat barnyard droppings. But Moore has been badly hurt by the accusations.
So Judge Moore, why don´t you come forth and tell the people of Alabama that if they will elect you, you will then resign and let the Governor appoint your replacement.
Hopefully this would get him over the finish line and keep another "progressive" out of the Senate.

Poster #3 offers a good solution, if Moore would humble himself to do this.

I started changing my mind about him when I read what his conservative law professor had to say about him. see http://www.al.com/opinion/index.ssf/2017/09/a_lesson_on_roy_moore_from_his.html

The greatest mistake here is that the GOPe got involved. in the primary. They should have let the people of AL decide for themselves - it´s probable that Mo Brooks would have won that race. In any case, Conservatives don´t need a Roy Moore.

Wow! You would have thought that posters here learned something from Herman Cain. Guess not!

So it´s off with Moore´s head then?! Well, good luck with ever getting another Repub in office if you start down this path!

Those with half a brain know he´s innocent until proven guilty!

I´ll chime in as an Alabama voter. I voted for Roy Moore once to be Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. While I agreed with his principled stance regarding the Ten Commandments display, I did not like the fact that he valued the trust of the people so little that he didn´t do what it took to keep his job. He could have kept his job and still shown character. At that point, I said I would never waste another vote on Roy Moore.

I supported Mo Brooks in the primary because I think Luther Strange is a slimey politician who made a deal with former Gov. Bentley and ran an over-the-top dishonest campaign.

I did not vote in the run-off because I couldn´t decide between the lesser of two evils, Strange or Moore.

There was no question of who I will vote for in the General Election. Roy Moore has been accussed of immoral behavior, which he denies ever happened. His opponent, Doug Jones proudly stands for, supports and promotes immoral behavior. Deciding on the lesser of two evils in this case is not so hard for me.

If the folks in New York, California and Washington D.C. keep on writing and talking about what the people of Alabama should do, they are helping Roy Moore. If there´s one thing most folks in Alabama have in common, it´s the fact that we don´t want to be like folks from New York, California and Washington D.C. and usually don´t heed their advice.

"But few would suggest, as Moore has, that homosexual conduct between consenting adults should be a crime."

That is the crux of this whole mess. Moore is staunchly against recreational sodomy - and recreational sodomy is our national religion.

Does this mean that every other senator and rep whether they be rep or dem who have sexual harassment claims against them should step down too. Fat chance of that happening!

Here we go again .. if Moore chooses to fight this fight and "carry this Cross", then it is his choice and no one else´s.

Of course, the swamp "allegators" are simply doubling, tripling, and quadrupling down to make Moore relent.

Those who hate identity politics and the politics of personal destruction must hang tough - really, really tough on this one. Even reporters, commentators, and politicians who we thought were tough in these matters have relented, passed judgment "I beleive this woman", and caved. We must not. Alabamians, in particular, must not.

Fortunately, with Moore´s unequivocal denial of frequenting the restaurant and even knowing Beverly Nelson, we now have the yearbook - equivalent to Monica´s blue dress - to forensically examine, and other customers of the restaurant to thoroughly question and vet, to finally get to the truth in this matter.

That is not likely to happen before December 12th, which is the calculus of those who want Moore to do a Herman Cain. That is why Moore should be elected on December 12th, allowing this to finally play out in time for the 2018 primaries.

Yawn...it´s only about "sex", and that´s already been declared a non-issue long ago. Politics long ago ceased to turn on choosing "the better man". That´s why so many of the lesser kind get (re)elected regardless of partisan affiliation. On to December 12th!

The yearbook note is a fake. The sevens are written differently in two dates. Look it up at the Gateway Pundit.

For my part, just sent $200 to Judge Moore. We must fight Cultural Marxism in the beaches, in the hills and in the Mountains. Give them no quarter. They almost destroyed America with Obama-Clinton-Carter.

None of these democrats and phony republicans cared that Teddy Kennedy was a Senator and he killed a young woman. I would vote for Moore in a second if I were in Alabama. Don´t you find it interesting that only conservative republicans have accusations hurled against them? The sleezy democrats apparently can do whatever they want.

#12, I want them to put a non-photoshopped COLOR pic of the yearbook out there widely. Supposedly a reddit autist is saying the ´MOORE´ and date and hickory house text are in a different color ink. As well as different writing. I wondered why it was always a grayscale pic of the yearbook, but that explanation made sense.

Let the people decide on Mooreif this is still a republic. It would be nice if these so called republicans jumped this fast on repealing obamacare & the tax bill. 100 % Fake republicans in the fake senate who passed one bill since January 20th but gave Obama every $$ he wanted.

The Republicans who jumped on this issue from the start did so because they want to prevent conservatives like Moore from serving in the Senate. They are just as corrupt as the Democrats.

How to fix the Democratic Party
Washington Post, by Mark Penn    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/17/2017 8:54:35 AM     Post Reply
Last week’s Democratic mini-wave has party members elated, and there is no question that the party is poised for gains in 2018 and perhaps 2020. Capitalizing on this opportunity means first understanding that Nov. 7 showed that moderate candidates offer the best chance for a bigger victory in 2018 and beyond. And to attract these candidates, Democrats need to fix their party. The Democratic mini-wave showed that in a near-swing state, a moderate Army veteran who voted for George W. Bush and opposes sanctuary cities could win a comfortable victory over a former Republican National Committee chairman and lobbyist who made

The most stupefying question prompted by Democratic Sen. Al Franken being accused of kissing and groping a woman without her consent isn´t whether he´ll be forced to resign his Senate seat, or whether the news (and Democratic reaction to it) makes it more or less likely that the Republican Senate candidate from Alabama Roy Moore will drop out of the race after multiple accusations of sexual misconduct, or whether the Senate will refuse to seat Moore in the chamber in the event that he stays in and wins the race.

Liberals’ Sudden Concern About Bill Clinton’s
Behavior Is Cynical And Self-Serving
The Federalist, by David Harsanyi    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/16/2017 7:58:23 AM     Post Reply
In the past few days a number of notable liberals have decided to take allegations of sexual assault against former president Bill Clinton seriously. Let’s just say that discarding the Clintons when they’re no longer politically useful to retroactively grab the higher moral ground isn’t exactly an act of heroism. But if we’re going to re-litigate history, let’s get it right. “That so many women have summoned the courage to make public their allegations against Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Roger Ailes, and Bill O’Reilly—or that many have come to reconsider some of the claims made against Bill Clinton—represents a cultural passage,” says

   

 



 
Tax bills give small businesses
plenty to be thankful for
The Hill, by Bernie Marcus    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/16/2017 7:52:44 AM     Post Reply
Small-business owners have a lot to be thankful for next week. The recently introduced tax-reform bills in the House of Representatives and Senate make small-business tax cuts a centerpiece. This long overdue relief would finally address the overtaxation that most small business owners say is the biggest hurdle they face. At the moment, small businesses, the vast majority of which pay tax at individual rates, face a marginal federal tax burden of 39.6 percent. When state and local taxes are factored in, this figure can rise to 50 percent. This puts small businesses at a competitive disadvantage with their big business and

Maine, Medicaid, and the Gruber Principle
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article

An aphorism much favored by my fellow dipsomaniacs goes thus: “Dogs are smarter than people. A dog won’t eat or drink anything that has made him sick in the past.” In other words, fill up Fido’s water bowl with Booker’s, let him slurp down enough to induce vomiting, and you’ll not get him near booze nor bowl again. What has this to do with Maine or Medicaid? Well, Maine experimented with Medicaid expansion 15 years ago, and it took the state a decade to recover from the hangover. Nonetheless, a majority of Maine’s voters approved another Medicaid expansion last Tuesday.

Watching the normally Trump-phobic talking heads at CNN bend themselves into pretzels to say something bad about our president´s foreign policy address in South Korea Wednesday (our Tuesday), you knew POTUS had to have scored a home run in front of that country´s National Assembly. In fact, if you had viewed the event live on television yourself, as I did here in Los Angeles, you would have known that already because Trump´s speech was superb -- at once as tough and determined toward the North Korean dictator as it was complimentary toward the miraculous achievements of the South.

Former model Leann Tweeden accused Minnesota Sen. Al Franken Thursday of harassing her multiple times during a USO entertainment tour in the Middle East in 2006. Tweeden alleges that Franken, a writer for Saturday Night Live before he became a Senator, wrote a script that featured him kissing her, and harassed her during rehearsals, Tweeden writes for KABC. When Tweeden returned from the tour, she noticed a photo from the tour where Franken has his hands on her breasts and is smiling into the camera. “You knew exactly what you were doing.

Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though

NBC host Megyn Kelly said President Trump is being hypocritical for condemning Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., for sexually harassing and assaulting a woman. "Who that has been accused of sexual assault would have the gall to preach to others about sexual misconduct. How infuriating that would be. How tone deaf, Mr. President," Kelly said on NBC´s "Today" show Friday morning. Trump had tweeted Thursday night that Franken should not be advocating for respect of women. "And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?" Trump

The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special

He added that "Senator Menendez was indicted on numerous federal felonies. He is one of only twelve U.S. senators to have been indicted in our history."

WASHINGTON — Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat of New York, who holds Hillary Clinton’s former seat, said on Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after his inappropriate relationship with an intern came to light nearly 20 years ago. Asked directly if she believed Mr. Clinton should have stepped down at the time, Ms. Gillibrand took a long pause and said, “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.” But she also appeared to signal that what is currently considered a fireable offense may have been more often overlooked during the Clinton era. “Things have changed today, and I think under those
