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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Progressives Whine about Obamacare Premiums
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/20/2017 6:20:15     Post Reply
It’s wrong, of course, to revel in the misfortune of others. I nonetheless laughed aloud when I read what the editors of the New York Times imagine is a heart-rending tale of several Obamacare supporters who, having ignored years of conservative warnings about the inevitability of premium increases under Obamacare, now lament the financial difficulties they face due to the high cost of health coverage. It would be easier to feel sympathy for these people if they admitted they were wrong about the “Affordable Care Act.” But progressives don’t do that. Instead, they blame President Trump and the GOP.

How to fix the Democratic Party

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

Posted By: garnet- 11/16/2017 7:58:23     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

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

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.

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.

Big lessons learned from Virginia,

The results are in and New Jersey and Virginia have elected new Democratic governors. In New Jersey, former Goldman Sachs executive and Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy expectedly defeated Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno by an estimated margin of as many as 14 points, and in Virginia, Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam defeated former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie by an estimated 7-to-8-point margin. Surely, New Jersey’s swing to a Democratic governor is a product of an unpopular outgoing Republican governor, Chris Christie, and President Trump’s unpopularity in the state as well. Further, outgoing Republican Governor Christie has the dubious status as New Jersey’s

There is ample talk, particularly of late, about the threats posed by social media to democracy and political discourse. Yet one of the primary ways that democracy is degraded by platforms such as Facebook and Twitter is, for obvious reasons, typically ignored in such discussions: the way they are used by American journalists to endorse factually false claims that quickly spread and become viral, entrenched into narratives, and thus can never be adequately corrected. The design of Twitter, where many political journalists spend their time, is in large part responsible for this damage. Its space constraints mean that tweeted headlines or

A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order to cut funding from so called “sanctuary cities.” Trump’s order would have removed some federal funds from cities that limit their cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the Trump administration’s argument that the measure only applies to a relatively small pool of money. Orrick also said that Trump cannot set fresh conditions on spending that Congress has previously approved. Monday’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by two California counties, Santa Clara and San Francisco.

Over the last few days, I’ve had a number of conversations with both right- and left-leaning friends about the political futures of Al Franken and Roy Moore. Without equating the severity of the alleged offenses (Moore’s are obviously worse), I’ve been struck by the extent to which people across the political spectrum will tolerate misconduct in politicians that they’d never, ever tolerate in their own workplaces. In most functioning corporations, if there’s pictorial evidence that a senior executive groped a woman, then that executive is forced to resign. If there are known, credible allegations that an applicant for a senior
