Roy Moore’s Story Is Unraveling
Slate, by William Saletan

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/8/2017 7:00:13 AM

A month ago, when Roy Moore was accused of having pursued teenage girls while in his 30s, he equivocated. “Do you remember dating girls that young?” Sean Hannity asked him. Moore hedged: “Not generally, no. If I did, you know, I’m not going to dispute anything, but I don’t remember anything like that.” Hannity asked Moore about Debbie Gibson, who said she had dated Moore when she was 17 and he was 34. “I don’t remember going out on dates,” said Moore. “I knew her as a friend. If we did go out on dates, then we did.” Moore’s uncertainty

The signature is indistinguishable? Can you say copy?

You know, if you did something 40 years ago, with service and a long, faithful marriage, you´re still guilty to these people.

How they can say with a straight face that felons should be allowed to vote is beyond me.

Salatan hasn´t got a clue, does he? His agenda- His ideas, his particular hate fest- that´s what he is all about, and nothing else matters. What a dirty little puke he is. What a filthy rag Slate is for having that POS as a writer, too.

I´m not a big Roy Moore fan, but how about some perspective? I am 13 years younger than Roy Moore and I grew up in north Alabama. The majority of rural and small town folks around here in the 60´s and 70´s were marrying in their late teens and early 20´s. There were certainly exceptions to this, but I´m speaking of the majority culture of the time.

As a fundamentalist Christian, he probably was not interested in divorced women as candidates for marriage, so the pool of available candidates would be younger women.

I think a likely scenario is that Moore dated young women he thought were 17 years old to mid-twenties. Some young women blossom at an earlier age, say 14, and can pass themselves off as 17 to 20. It is not illegal in Alabama even now for a 32 year old man to date a 16 year old girl. The testimony of most of the women who came forward the first week of this uproar was that Moore dated them when they were of age and there was nothing more than kissing and hugging that happened on their dates. To my way of thinking, they help established a pattern of Moore´s behavior that indicates he was not a predator, but rather a suitor. That´s a big difference.

Again, perspective is important. Looking at all of this with 2017 glasses when most people are marrying later in life is not the same as seeing things the way they were back then.

One of the incidents in this article involves Moore allegedly dating an 18 year old. Even today, girls of 18 and less are marrying and becoming teen age mothers. So what is so scandalous about a man dating an 18 year old? All of these incidents happened to girls of the age of consent except the one allegedly 14 year old. And why won´t Gloria Allred allow the yearbook to be examined?

Slate rehashes the allegations, which are presented as evidence, but are not. If Slate were a fair news source, we would hear something about their investigation of those making the allegations, but we do not. It is all one sided, making it evident that Slate´s real agenda is to get another Democrat in the Senate. I despise corruption in the media, and Slate should be branded as corrupt media.

Slate´s last ditch effort to derail the Alabama election. Let the people of Alabama decide. If he wins, he wins the seat. No pressure to resign, the people of Alabama will have spoken either way this goes. We don´t need Kristen Gillibrand deciding who represents Alabama.

How come it is ok for older celebrities to date young women (teens) and to hook up with them? The Kardashians have been doing it for a long time with no complaints. Old rock stars brag about their young wives. This is getting ridiculous.

Always verify your source:

Sometimes you read stuff so bizarre that it simply takes your breath away. Slate, which set the standard of intellectual rigor with its epic expose of the cruel sport of monkeyfishing, has always been a motherlode of lackwits who can be counted upon to say the most bizarre things to boost their pageviews. One of the black holes of intelligence at Slate is a guy named William Saletan.

This weekend Saletan determined that Republican presidential candidates are indistinguishable from ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. (I am deliberately not providing a link).

Dems fear ‘Stephen Miller
ambush’ on immigration
The Hill (DC), by Mike Lillis and Rafael Bernal    Original Article

President Trump’s inflammatory remarks against immigrants from a host of developing-world nations have sparked outrage amid talks on the fate of Dreamers just as lawmakers from both parties were claiming progress on a hard-fought deal. But supporters of the immigration package say the deeper threat to an agreement is not the president, but the conservatives in both the White House and Congress fighting to kill the deal before it can pick up steam –– an effort they’re calling “the Stephen Miller ambush,” referencing a top White House aide. The leading negotiators on an immigration package — Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)

President Trump dissolved his controversial voter integrity commission Wednesday, giving up on one of key initiatives from the 2016 election. The White House said Mr. Trump didn’t want to fight an endless stream of costly legal battles against voter-rights groups, so he issued an executive order canceling the panel altogether. “Despite substantial evidence of voter fraud, many states have refused to provide the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity with basic information relevant to its inquiry,” the White House said in a statement. “Rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense, today I signed an

President Trump kicked off the new year praising the people of Iran for “acting against” the regime, while accusing former President Barack Obama of helping Tehran fund “terrorism.” The spending on terror and proxy wars is part of what demonstrators are protesting. “The people of Iran are finally acting against the brutal and corrupt Iranian regime. All of the money that President Obama so foolishly gave them went into terrorism and into their ‘pockets.’ The people have little food, big inflation and no human rights. The U.S. is watching!” Trump tweeted early Tuesday. As Trump voices support for the protesters,

Colorado police say ‘multiple deputies’ are down after a shooting outside Denver. “We have multiple officers down,” Douglas County, Colorado, Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Blanchard told The New York Times on Sunday. He described it as an active scene and said the gunman was not in custody. The department’s Twitter account also said multiple deputies were down but said there was no update on their status. It urged people in the area to shelter in place.

For all the squabbling that social media platforms are notorious for, their relevance to the media landscape plays an important role in times of protest. This was evident with Black Lives Matter, among other movements. It’s been evident for the past three days in Iran, where thousands have taken to streets and public squares calling for an end to the hardline conservative regime of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The question that needs to be asked right now is why traditional mainstream media outlets – grandstanding over their importance in this new, bold era of fact-checking and truth-telling – have largely ignored

President Trump sat down with New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt for an interview in West Palm Beach yesterday. Schmidt was low-key and even respectful, while Trump was ebullient. You can read excerpts here. (As always, there is no point in reading any newspaper’s account of the conversation.) Trump was his usual unscripted self–rambling, not very articulate, sometimes humorously self-promoting, generally correct if often imprecise. He talked at length, and with great confidence, about Mueller’s investigation. Here, he knows things are going his way: Let’s just say — I think that Bob Mueller will be fair, and everybody knows that

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade.

You’ve got to feel for Robert Mueller. The man overseeing the special investigation into Russian election meddling is by all accounts a non-partisan straight shooter, the model image of a public-minded civil servant. Drafted to lead politically polarizing investigation, working under the beady eyes of distrustful congressional Republicans, Mueller has striven to keep his team’s conduct as unimpeachable as possible by bringing on some of America’s sharpest legal minds to check his own work and keeping public comments to a minimum. Imagine how Mueller feels, then, to have to answer so frequently for the partisans and incompetents surrounding him. The special counsel’s biggest

Congressional investigators believe they are barely beginning to answer the questions raised by the text messages between the FBI´s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. For several reasons: 1) Strzok and Page were more prolific texters than anyone knew. In a statement late Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said FBI investigators have found "over 50,000 texts" in their review of Strzok-Page communications. 2) Even with all those texts, the FBI says it cannot find the couple´s messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017 — a critical time in the Trump-Russia affair.

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey

And now they say Trump will simply not get a better deal than that on his signature campaign promise. Schumer “took it off,” said Sen.

Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,

It would also reopen the government, which has been partially closed since midnight
