If one reads the original Washington Post article on Judge Moore’s supposed harassment of underage “girls” with an open mind, one will conclude that Judge Moore is completely innocent, and that he is the victim of Fake News. (snip) read the Post article and assume that the reporters wrote the exact truth about what four human females told them (a big assumption, I grant). Then three of the four claim that Roy Moore dated them when they were women, not girls. And not only did they themselves consent to dating Moore, their families consented to their dating Moore. (Actually, according
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Josef Goebbels, Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda of the Third Reich, 1933 – 1945
What irritates me is all the so-called Republicans running like rats. Apparently, the swamp includes many that people thought were conservative and had backbones.
Professor Tipler cites the accusers three marriages, three bankruptcies but doesn´t mention her run ins with the law(all minor) or that she has accused several pastors of sexually harassing her. I would not have voted for Moore last month but I would now that he is the candidate.
Totally agree with Tipler. Who says an age difference is a crime? I bet if you go back in history, you´ll find a few of our former presidents married much younger women. As mentioned earlier. What if this was true and this girl lied about her age which is often the case with young teen girls wanting to look and appear older.
A couple of questions...Did she have a father present in her life? What was her family life growing up? Furthermore, over the years with all her financial problems, why did she decide to wait until now to come forward?
When I served as a juror and the prosecution had a witness testify to hearing a disturbance , thump on the wall, at a time completely unrelated to the timeline they were constructing of the crime they were presenting, it detracted from their case in my eyes.
The inclusion of three examples of what many consider gentlemanly behavior serves to do the same.
Watch old B&W TV and look at the top shows of the late 50´s and early 60´s and you will see unquestionable evidence that as a society we saw nothing wrong with a late teen female dating an early 30 something man. I do think that has changed but it´s not exactly 10 commandment material such as adultery and murder of which infanticide is a reprehensible subset.
The last known Civil War widow, Maudie Hopkins (1914-2008), died less than a decade ago. She married her 86 year old husband in 1934 when she was 19. (The last Civil War veteran died in 1959.)
Dating or marrying much younger women--or men, if one is a cougar--isn´t common, but is hardly a rare thing. The statute of limitations, save for murder, exists for a good reason. It´s easy to believe that Judge Moore was attracted to younger women when he was a relatively young man, and there´s nothing wrong with it or illegal about it. (This LDotter is not married, and has dated women from ten years older to thirty years younger. There are advantages and disadvantages to each alternative.)
There is a 100% chance that the charges against Judge Moore at this late date are politically motivated; he should not lose the election because of it. If his Democrat opponent seems to be ahead, let him have his brief moment of glory. When Judge Moore gets to the Senate, he will not be beholden to anyone but Alabama voters. The hypocritical establishment Republicans who reject him should themselves be rejected. Alabama is still a red state. Moore will carry it. And he will cast conservative votes in the U.S. Senate.
I learned early that a reader can NEVER trust the Washington Post. It is filled with careful lies, half lies, half truth and a blatant liberal and progressive slant in every story. Even science coverage and book reviews have been corrupted. You can trust me on this. I was forced to read this rag every day of my career and it made me sick at heart to see how corrupt journalism has become. I spent a career in government where I knew the truth and witnessed reporting corrupted to serve the liberal agenda. The timing of the Moore charges stinks of lies and propaganda.
Until now I have unquestioningly supported Roy Moore, because I appreciated his stance on the 10 Commandments. Now I am trying to learn more, since there is no way to prove or disprove the allegations against him. What is a curious person to do when they don´t want to jump on a bandwagon whether from left or right?
Well, what do others say about him? Here is an article from September, written by one of his law school professors. Not a liberal, but a conservative and director of a Christian prison ministry. The article is titled "A lesson on Roy Moore from his former law school professor" and here is the link:
I have also now listened to several more talks by Judge Moore and am inclined to think that his interest in girls was (at least as a 30-something professional) not quite cool. Doesn´t mean he did anything illegal. But the impressions of his professor and some of his fumbling initial responses leave a distaste in my mouth. Wishing now, with Laura Ingraham, that Mo Brooks had been supported by the GOP from the start.
May God give discernment to the good people of Alabama, and may He bless and protect our beloved nation. Ramona (the Pest)
In Hollywood, old actors brag about dating younger women. The ex husband of one of the Kardashian women is dating a 19 year old woman. He is 32. No one seems to think anything is wrong with that. Prince Charles married Diana when she was 19. He had to be dating her when she was younger. No one seemed bothered by that. Judge Moore was dating women; that is not harassment or abuse. Bill Clinton abused women. The Democrats defended him to the end. They still consider him their hero. Hillary stayed with him. Don´t get me started.
Remembering back to the smear campaign against Justice Clarence Thomas and the similar smear campaign against presidential candidate Herman Cain, does anyone else see the ´Rats pulling the same well-worn page out of their standard dirty tricks playbook?
Heck, no-one even said anything about Cosby until he started telling the black thugs to "Pull Up Your Pants". THAT´s when the media firestorm against him began.
The left indeed has become a family. Unfortunately, it often resembles the Gotti crime family (hat tip: Larry Schweikart). Let´s face it: Republicans have their share of corruption, but what the left has become is not tinged with the normal shortcomings of humanity. It´s become criminal. Literally. Fully. And seriously. Let´s look at a few shades of leftist criminality. I don´t mean the common finger-pointing, where leftists claim that anything done by the center-right is "criminal." Like being for tax cuts. Being pro-life. Or against illegal immigration. Voting for Trump was criminal. The left thinks anyone to its right is criminal. But most sane
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, someone whom many of us consider asleep at the wheel concerning high level corruption at the FBI and DOJ, has woken up. No longer lurking in the weeds while Congressional committees and intrepid bloggers are peeling back the layers of the onion on deep state corruption, Sessions has moved from the weeds to weed itself. The AG this past week announced very simply that federal law regarding marijuana will be enforced. The left is apoplectic, even distracted a bit from the Trump-Russia collusion narrative and the recent tell-all book about President Trump, which is turning out to
How do Democrats explain to themselves the way they keep getting outsmarted by a man they claim is a moron? President Trump has Democrats exactly where he wants them on the issue of DACA. Even PBS gets it: With a new deadline fast approaching, Democrats in Congress are struggling to adopt a unified strategy to protect hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation. Their inaction has enraged liberal activists across the country (snip) President Trump engineered this dilemma for Schumer by rescinding Obama’s executive order creating the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program, but giving Congress until March 2018 to
Elected officials in the City of Harvey, Illinois are going to be missing their paychecks, as the decades of over-spending and over-taxing finally come home for the politicians responsible for the crisis. Zack Keske of the Chicago Tribune reports: Elected officials in Harvey learned Thursday they would not be getting paid this pay cycle due to the city´s "financial constraints," according to an email obtained by the Daily Southtown. City Comptroller Louis B. Williams notified officials early Thursday afternoon that the city could not pay them this pay period (snip) Harvey, Illinois is, to be frank, a basket case of
Most Americans are not familiar with the name of Kristian Saucier, but they should be. He is the U.S. Navy sailor sentenced to prison for taking pictures inside the nuclear submarine he served in. He was not a spy for a foreign power. He had no intent, to coin a phrase, to do anything with these photos except keep them as personal memories of his proud and honorable service. A [U.S.] Navy sailor was sentenced on Friday to a year in prison for taking photos of classified areas inside a nuclear attack submarine while it was in port in Connecticut. Kristian Saucier,
Before progressives start celebrating the dissolution of the Election Integrity Commission, they had better figure out what lies ahead. (snip) “What’s happening is a tactical shift where the mission of the commission is being handed off to Homeland Security without the stonewalling by Democrats,” Kobach told Breitbart News. “I’ll be working closely with the White House and DHS to ensure the investigations continue,” Kobach continued. I think that the left has outsmarted itself by making alleged “Russian hacking” of the election a national security issue. This opens the door for DHS -- armed with far more investigatory power than any commission might
Recently, a sailor on the cruiser Shiloh started to behave erratically. He claimed he had the ability to shoot fireballs from his hands and that he had traveled into outer space. Despite his obvious insanity, no action was taken. The sailor, named Peter Mims, then hid aboard his ship, and no one was able to find him for a week. (snip) The command counseled him in 2015 for being late on qualifications. Yet that same year, he was listed as "must promote" in his annual evaluation. "His enthusiasm and motivation are contagious!" a supervisor wrote on his eval. "A rock-solid performer
Nineteen forty-two was the critical year of WWII. During that year, four battles were fought that turned the fortunes of war in favor of the Allies. (snip) While certainly not as dramatic as the events of WWII, the political defeat of leftism may well be just as decisive. It is, after all, the last surviving remnant of what historian John Lukacs called the "social-nationalist" ideologies, which include fascism, Nazism, Communism, and state Shinto. Leftism is a survival of the politically diseased 20th century, remaining only due to social inertia and rabid indoctrination through education and the media. It may finally be
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which I affectionately refer to as the Diseased Centers of Control, have conducted a study showing that black men make better parents than white men. The study, conducted in 2013, came to light in a recent Washington Post article on the Post´s favorite topic – you guessed it! – of racism. The study was conducted by the CDC´s Division of Vital Statistics, centering on how involved fathers are in the lives of their children. It found the following: 1) Thirty-five percent of white fathers who don´t live with their children do not eat meals
The great Sexual Harassment Panic of 2017 is at last dying down. (snip) But what exactly has changed? Earthquakes are noted for massive and universal destruction, revolutions for the guillotine and the firing squad. In fact, a cursory examination of the scene reveals...absolutely nothing. We stand at the same point we were at before it all happened. A large number of creeps have been outed and ejected, and that´s generally a good thing. These were all trash – Harvey Weinstein, Al Franken, Garrison Keillor, John Conyers. They will not be missed. They should have been nailed a long time ago, and they
Trump Derangement Syndrome is a real phenomenon, capable of clouding the judgment of seasoned journalists, and now we have a case study demonstrating the depths of the disorder at the nation’s largest provider of news. Frank Miele edits a small newspaper in Kalispell, Montana, The Daily Inter Lake, but has attracted a national audience with his common sense conservative editorials. His latest weekly column is a must-read for everyone who wants to understand how and why fake news flourishes in the mainstream media. He describes his “rare shift” as news editor the day before yesterday, in which he encountered an AP
The NASA/GISS temperature record is not actually a record of recorded temperatures. It is simply the most recent version of NASA´s adjustments to older adjustments. It is not thermometer readings. It is models all the way down. (snip) Apparently, the Earth is getting warmer faster than it was five and a half years ago, but not because of actual recorded thermometer readings in those last five and a half years. It is getting warmer faster because NASA adjusted the data to show faster warming. When you go to the NASA website, you can download temperature anomalies "1880-present." But those data change
NBC network and celebrities dubbed Oprah Winfrey “our future president” following her appearance at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards and her speech referencing civil rights and the #MeToo campaign that highlighted rampant sexual harassment. The iconic talk show host was the subject of a joke by the award’s host Seth Meyers who taunted her to run for U.S. president. “In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Jokes about how he was unqualified to be president,” Mayers said. “Some have said that night convinced him to run. So if that’s true, I
Monica Lewinsky, who was widely vilified and ridiculed when details of her infamous affair with former president Bill Clinton surfaced in 1998, revealed that not one political player who mocked her at the time has ever apologized. ´Public shaming as a blood sport has to stop,´ Lewinsky said during her first ever public ticketed talk at the Park City Institute in Utah. When Lewinsky was 24 years old she became internationally famous overnight as the most private details spread on the internet. ´Overnight I went from being a completely private person to being completely publicly humiliated,´ Lewinsky told an audience of about
Left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer, who is leading a campaign for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, plans to hand-deliver 535 copies of Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, to every voting member of Congress. Steyer told San Francisco Bay Area public radio station KQED: ““We believed when we started this impeachment petition on Oct. 20, we felt every subsequent day would bring information that would bolster our argument that this was a dangerous, unfit president who needed to be removed from office, and from what I can tell, this book makes that case in very bold
ATLANTA (AP) — The NAACP wants to see white towels amid the crimson, white, red and black worn by fans to send a message to President Donald Trump during the national college football championship in Atlanta. Atlanta’s NAACP chapter said on its Facebook page that it wants fans inside the stadium for the College Football Playoff title game to wave white towels ”simulating a blizzard.” It’s one of several anti-Trump protests planned as Trump visits Atlanta on Monday night to attend the showdown between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama.The NAACP also is urging people to hold anti-Trump
CNN host Jake Tapper clashed with senior policy adviser Stephen Miller over claims in "Fire & Fury: Inside The Trump White House," Michael Wolff´s explosive new tell-all about President Donald Trump´s campaign, presidential transition, and administration.In an interview on "State of the Union" on Sunday, Tapper pressed Miller to respond to some of the most high-profile claims, including Bannon´s assertion that a 2016 meeting between the Trump campaign and a Kremlin-linked lawyer was "unpatriotic" and "treasonous."Miller dismissed both Bannon and Wolff´s credibility, saying the author was a "garbage author of a garbage book," and that claims in the book were
The legalization of marijuana became a hot topic in the past week. First, recreational use of the drug became legal in California at the start of 2018. Next, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he would allow U.S. attorneys to decide whether to enforce federal laws outlawing the use and sale of pot in states that have legalized the drug. Sessions ended an Obama administration policy that discouraged federal prosecutors from enforcing federal marijuana laws in states that allow the drug’s medical or recreational use. It’s not clear yet what impact the attorney general’s action will have. As a physician, my doctoring knowledge
During a rousing nine-minute address, the talk show host touched on women’s rights, the importance of a free press and what it meant to be the first black woman to receive the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award. Before receiving a standing ovation, she closed with the promise “a new day is on the horizon”, adding fuel to rumours the entertainment mogul could have her eyes on the White House. (Snip) In response to her remarks, social media users were quick to support a possible presidential bid by the 63-year-old with many seeing her comments has an opening salvo to a
David Cameron thought Barack Obama was one of the ´most narcissistic, self-absorbed people´ he had ever dealt with, his former strategy guru has claimed. While in office the two leaders had a cosy bromance and were pictured high-fiving and playing rounds of golf and ping pong together. But Steve Hilton tore into Mr Obama for thinking he was ´smarter´ than everyone else in the room. And he claimed that his old boss Mr Cameron would get wound up by the ex President´s self absorption. He said: ´My old boss, former British prime minister David Cameron, thought Obama was one of the most narcissistic,
ALBANY – Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo thinks he has a way to end run President Trump. If the president´s federal tax overhaul plan is going to hit thousands of New Yorkers with higher tax bills, then New York will circumvent Washington by rewriting part of its complex tax code, Cuomo reasons. But it’s not so easy. The basic premise of the still-evolving state plan, vaguely unveiled during Cuomo’s State of the State speech last week, is to sharply reduce the state’s reliance on income taxes that employees pay by starting a new, statewide payroll tax that employers would pay. It’s
President Trump is spending an increasing amount of his day on social media and watching television, which his schedule has dubbed officially as ´executive time´ - and his days in the Oval Office don´t actually begin in earnest until 11 a.m. each day, a report from Axios stated. The report states that Trump´s day begins at 8 a.m., but that he conducts business from his private residence in the White House rather than the Oval Office. This compares to George W. Bush, who often began his official day in the West Wing at 6:45 a.m. In addition, Trump apparently shrunk his official
Some Democratic lawmakers are renewing their campaign this week of questioning President Trump’s mental fitness for office, aided by a psychiatrist who is drawing ethics rebukes from her peers for giving opinions about the president without having examined him.Lawmakers will gather for dinner Wednesday night at the Washington home of Rep. Rosa DeLauro, Connecticut Democrat, in a “salon-like” setting to hear from Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale University professor and forensic psychiatrist who believes Mr. Trump is “dangerous” and requires a mental-capacity exam.DeLauro spokesman Will Serio confirmed the planned dinner meeting but couldn’t say how many lawmakers are expected to
Now that Steve Bannon has carried his political jihad to its logical conclusion, martyrdom never looked so meaningless. A bright and talented man has sacrificed himself over nothing more significant than anger and vanity. Consider a recent report that Bannon was mulling the idea of running for president in 2020. Presumably that was part of his plan to elect a batch of Roy Moores, depose Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and reshape congress to match his own definition of economic nationalism. As such, Bannon’s decision to go out in a blaze of personal attacks on the president and everybody else in the White
