5 Things to Know About Doug Jones´ Victory
Over Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate Race

PJ Media, by Tyler O´Neil

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/13/2017 4:25:54 AM

On Tuesday, Democrat Doug Jones pulled off a stunning victory over Republican Roy Moore in Alabama. The race went down to the wire, but the Democrat prevailed. Here are five things to know about why Jones won, why Moore lost, and what it means for the future of the U.S. Senate and both parties. 1. Character matters. According to NBC News exit polls, 49 percent of Alabama voters thought the sexual assault accusations against Roy Moore were "definitely" or "probably" true. Republicans and Democrats split on partisan lines — a whopping 82 percent of Republicans said the allegations were "probably" or "definitely" false,

Double win for Dems: A Senate win and an inept if not confused Attorney General Sessions who is frightened by Hillary & Obama. Sessions should have stayed in his Senate role rather than pretend he´s Attorney General.

It is my understanding that Obama was involved in Doug Jones campaign. Explains why Roy Moore was run through wringer. Remember Mark Kirk in the Illinois race? He was smeared by the divorce papers. This has the same smell.

To all of you Alabamans who voted for Doug Jones: I hope you have lily white backgrounds because that is what was expected of Roy Moore.

No more Clintons, no more Obamas, and no more Bushes. I am sick of these people who think they should continue ruling us peasants.

I didn´t see any energy in black voters for Jones. High participation would be a indicator of voter fraud. I want to see an investigation of multiple voting by bus and brobes to black ministers.

The Obama cabal spent nearly 3 million dollars on this campaign. I was so hoping he would lose all that cash.

Well, the stage has been set. All the left has to do is find women who are willing to make allegations against any Republican who decides to run for office because as we have learned now, women always tell the truth about any kind of sexual impropriety and the media will do their best to support any allegation regardless of its veracity or proof. Of course this new narrative only points in one direction. The dems have found a new cudgel with which to beat up any Republican candidate.

When is the GOPe going to understand that the left is fighting ruthlessly for every seat and they intend by whatever dubious method to win. The sanctimonious GOPe are comfortable with this loss because they believe it will harm the President. Fat chance. We see right through their perfidy and stand firmly in support of PDT. There is a battle waging for the soul of this country and we know where the lines are drawn. This is not the end of Steve Bannon either. He, like Andrew Breitbart, understands the enemy and also the stakes as do we Deplorables. MAGA!

To all those folks who did the write-in, you can show your moral superiority because you helped the candidate who voted for the head of the Bimbo Eruption Team last year.

And when they come for you, there will be no one left to help you.

What this election proves is that claims of anything sexual can and will sink a candidate whether they are true or not. It did not work against Trump, but that doesn´t mean they aren´t going to stop.

Meanwhile, Al Franken HAS to resign now.

Moore has filed lawsuits against the two slanderers.

Hope he takes them to court and cleans their clocks... including that Gloria Allred´s.

But, sadly, what poster #10 said is true. Unproveable, ancient allegations work. It doesn´t matter if you put your dog on the car or bullied a long haired kid 40 years ago or some girl says that you respected her age of majority, like she respected your request for a date, 4 decades back. This means that the people who fought to free our country from the Brits, wrote the constitution, established the rule of law, and made this country a beacon of freedom in the world are now. Just.
Slaveholders.

It sucks to lose. It really does.

But this was a battle, not the war - and life goes forward.

Of course the Establishment (both wings) will gloat and say "I told you so". They will reaffirm their belief that "money talks", that they are still in control, and simply tell us to "submit" and "work harder".

I especially disagree with two of O´neill´s points:

2. Steve Bannon´s populism won´t work.
Baloney. It worked for President Trump, and only reluctantly supported Roy Moore. It was undermined by the Establishment and all of the establishment resources, money, and dirty tricks. We need a "pure play" free of the GOP albatross.

I will not work for or send money to the corrupt GOP.

I will not work for Mitch McConnell.

I will not work for Paul Ryan.

I will not work for this swamp and the creatures (especially RINOs) in it.

5. The Senate is not necessarily in play for 2018.
Wanna bet?? The GOP is very likely to lose control of the Senate, and possibly even the House. Whether in numbers or in fact: the Democrats will be in control over their feckless GOP b!tches. There is no longer this "downside" to forming a new party.

The sixth thing to know (and most important) is that the Republican party and its Establishment will not "git ´er done" for us.

We need a new party. A "USIP", if you will. Remember that with 1/3 of the Senate and President Trump we can block the Establishment agenda. Then in 2020 or 2024 we can renew our agenda to MAGA. It is too important not to do this.

What we really learned.
1. Character assault works.
2. Steve Bannon´s populism works. The Tribes of DEM, GOPE and Soros joined together to defeat the candidate.
3. The Senate is definitely in play for 2018. This was a shot by the Establishment to try and scare away any Trump supporting type candidates. The swamp is scared and fighting for its privilege at the expense of the rest of us.
Punch back twice as hard and MAGA. Go Trump!

And remember, FRANKEN has NOT officially retired. Wanna bet he stays and says MAKE ME LEAVE! Democrats smell Blood in the water now. I hope those Smug Republcans are happy!

What I know is the Republicans are retarded expletive deleted s who desreve to be included with the Democrats when we clean house.

And we need to clean house.

I believe that Moore was innocent of the charges laid against him, and they will conveniently vanish now he is no longer a candidate for elected office.

I would also not be suprised if there was massive fraud. The Dems sure paid enough for the seat, but during the Obama years, they probably amassed about half of the 9 trillionos so he wracked up in U.S. Debt as a political war chest.

The long dark is coming...

I think this is a one-off. Back in the 90s, there was a very powerful Democrat Congressman from Chicago, Dan Rostenkowski. He was my representative. He was charged with improper hiring practices and misuse of funds. He lost his seat to the Republican in the next election. In Chicago, in the safest of safe Democrat districts. Two years later, the Democrats re-took the seat. My new Congressman was Blago.

I am sure the Democrat cheated, but that said, the GOP still could have won with (even) bigger turnout. No way do I believe 92 percent of all democrats went to vote for Jones. But that is the way the game is played. Still coulda won.

The newest trick has been learned by the Dems to use in their play book. Just accuse a Republican --- any Republican --- of sexual harassment and the candidate is dead. Never mind there is no collaboration, no sworn testimony, no legal charges, no trial for evidence, no nothing. He said, she said. So what. And the allegations can go back a cloudy 40 years!

And the REALLY bad news: John McCain is more empowered. In fact, any two Republicans can band together with him now to stop Trump in the Senate. And a weak Mitch will let it happen and shrug his shoulders.

5 more things you need to know (or at least consider)

Roy Moore probably did ogle teenage girls when he was in his thirties. An honest poll would find 90+ percent of all heterosexual males in the same category doing the same thing. It´s called nature.

Thirty percent of blacks in a given area do not do anything for a white boy without getting something in return. Look for bonus EBT cards in Alabama for Christmas.

The broke democrats spent big bucks on this election and Obama was involved, which meant that honesty was not.

Jones comes across as a weak candidate. He will soon become a part of the lemming democrat screw-up list which makes up about half of their congressional members.

Time for a recount, then another recount, and repeat until Moore is ahead. Oh, and go through those ´high participation´ precincts and assess the vote fraud. Then prosecute.

Do the leftards give up when their guy loses by a few thousand votes? Do they move on? They want to win. They are serious about winning. If the pubbies just say, oh, well, and move on, then they don´t want to win all that much.

Rush Limbaugh listeners will recall that yesterday, he opined that the GOP and the White House do not want Moore to win -- he´s baggage that would have brought even more scrutiny not only to the sexual behavior of Trump, (such as it was.) Rush noted other reasons that the writer of this article echoed.

Yes, we could have used that Senate vote but I believe this loss for the GOP will turn out for the best because it will spur the White House and the GOP to greater vigilance and a wider search for good people to replace our own dead wood.

11 months from now the Democrats are going to cakewalk to a massive takeover of the Senate and probably the house. Mitch and Paul will be out of their jobs. They failed to repeal OCare and gave us a bogus tax increase bill and will surely pass a new entitlement for family leave as well as another trillion dollars for union labor under infrastructure camouflage. The wall won’t get built and the war on Conservatives will escalate. Jones is just the beginning of the end and the clock is ticking down to the end of the once in a lifetime opportunity that was miraculously given to Republicans. And they blew it big time. Way to go.

IF you are innocent do not let Hannity interview you; let Tucker. Hannity created more ambiguity and questions. Moore did not directly answer the questions and Hannity let him get by with it.

Moore did date 18,19 year olds. I´m unclear about younger teens. By today´s standards that may seem odd but for a young man in the 70´s with little to no dating experience I don´t think it was morally wrong to date a 18 or 19 yo. Two of the moms were eager for their daughters to do so. 4 of 6 had nothing bad to say about him. I did not believe the worst two of the 2 allegations.

Hindsight is 20/20 but he should have had one good interview and one press conference where he answered every question even if it lasted 6 hours. After that he should not have said a word.

I had far more problems with what he said about Jews and homosexuals.

I agree it would have been better if the seat remained “Republican”, however I don’t see this loss as a catastrophe. Moore has the warrior spirit but his previous wins seemed him being a stick-in-the-eye to political correctness and the Progressive-Communist agenda. His famous battles centered on the public display of the Ten Commandments and, although a praise worthy defense of God’s law, it has limited political currency. Moore didn’t run as a MAGA candidate. Jones does not serve a full term, and I also agree it will be a one-off like Scott Brown in Massachusetts.

Al Franken is probably even more disappointed than Judge Moore. Al was counting on the Moore win to leverage keeping his seat. The “why are you supporting a sexual predator” question is now back in the Dhimmi court, where it rightfully belongs.

President Trump’s successful advancement of the MAGA agenda does not depend upon the senate seat in Alabama turning Dhim for a partial term. Doug Jones will melt into The Swamp and be drained away with all the other scum at the appropriate time. The big fish-fry is warming up over at the DOJ and will commence with the IG’s special report. All things in their proper order according to The Builder’s Grand Plan. I trust in God. I also trust President Trump.

Merry MAGA Christmas!

Negativity and pessimism will ensure losses in 2018. Forget about this election. It wasn´t about Trump or the republicans. I think was about Moore. Candidates accused of crimes, rightly or wrongly, can´t win. The time is now to make sure all candidates running in 2018 are vetted and clean. And it´s also time to start digging up dirt on the Democrat candidates.

Remember our rejoicing when Scott Brown won in dark blue Massachusetts? He´s long gone now and the seat returned to a liberal. The same thing will happen in Alabama. Lost this battle but Moore was a flawed candidate. The next one will be fine and will win. Just hope the republicans keep the majority in both houses. Send money and work for your candidate. It really does help.

Where the Alabama Republicans made their first mistake was to vote for Roy Moore over President Trump’s preferred candidate Luther Strange in the Alabama Republican primary election. It looks like local issues in Alabama caused that to happen.

The second Alabama Republican mistake was to take the carpetbagger generated liberal Democrat bait by instead of voting for Moore in the election yesterday, to write in the names of other people on their ballots who had no chance of winning, and to effectively split the Republican vote. When that happed in the past the liberal Democrat usually won, and that was probably born out in Alabama yesterday.

That result has nothing to do with the 2018 Senate races in other states. But Republican candidates in those Senate races had better be ready, because it is almost certain that the liberal Democrats will now be looking for women who will come forward during those campaigns to charge those Republican candidates with sexual abuse, now that they know it worked for the Democrats in Alabama yesterday.

Time to find a better conservative candidate for the Senator from Alabama in 2020. Sounds like this Jones is a turdbucket, and I´m sure the true residents of Alabama want to express their conservative credentials to the world.

It´s time for Trump to start playing political "chess"

Character doesn´t count. If it did Slick Willie and Ted Kennedy wouldn´t have had careers. Now all the women who accused Judge Moore can cash their checks from George Soros and the DNC, get face lifts and tummy tucks, and get back to night life. Am ambivalent about all this. I´m certain Jimmy Carter was a perfect gentleman with all the women he saw socially. But he was an awful president. PT has warts but he is trying to do what needs to be done.

So much for due process. Moore was being politically assassinated, and far too many voters fell for it. What´s also sad, is how many Republicans seemed to have a hand in the political assassination of Moore.

The candidate is always the most important character in any election. Roy Moore was a terrible candidate and that´s why he lost. Steve Bannon didn´t help matters. He needs to get lost.

What´s next in the investigation
of those missing FBI texts
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article

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. It´s probably safe to say there is not a single

Monday morning, after bragging about what fighters they were in forcing the federal government into shutdown mode over their demands for amnesty for illegal immigrants brought to America as children, Senate Democrats meekly gave in and voted for a short-term federal budget deal. And the left wing of the Democrat Party is not happy about it. The predicate of the “compromise” Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced was that Schumer would be guaranteed a vote on a “clean” bill giving congressional authorization to the Obama administration’s DACA, the program protecting the children of illegal immigrants from deportation, by Feb. 8 in return for

What a coincidence. Months after Bob Costas publicly said football “destroys people’s brains,” NBC mysteriously left the legendary broadcaster off of its Super Bowl broadcast team. Costas will be replaced by Dan Patrick, who will serve as the host of NBC’s Super Bowl LII pregame show alongside co-host Liam McHugh. The duo will be joined by “Football Night in America” analysts Tony Dungy, Rodney Harrison, Mike Florio and Chris Simms, the network announced in a press release Monday. Costas previously addressed the dangers of playing football while speaking on a panel at the University of Maryland along with other sports journalists and personalities

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

Daniel Irvin Rather, Jr. is 86 years young. That´s an age when most Americans, if they´re still kicking, start contemplating what´s next. They´ve had a good run, and it´s time to start planning a dignified exit. Time to start thinking about what sort of legacy they´re leaving for future generations. Time to go out with a little grace. Not Dan Rather, though!

Are Trump and Kelly Heading for Divorce

Donald Trump’s relationship with John Kelly, his chief of staff, fraught from the beginning, may finally have gone past the point of no return. Two prominent Republicans in frequent contact with the White House told me that Trump has discussed choosing Kelly’s successor in recent days, asking a close friend what he thought about David Urban, a veteran Washington lobbyist and political operative who helped engineer Trump’s victory in Pennsylvania. Ivanka is also playing a central role in the search, quietly field-testing ideas with people. “Ivanka is the most worried about it. She’s trying to figure who replaces Kelly,”

Virtually all of the credibility of the so-called Steele dossier — and the Trump-Russia collusion narrative and investigations it spawned — hinges on Christopher Steele’s vaunted reputation as a former British intelligence agent who spied on Moscow and still maintains a network of sources inside the Kremlin. But now we are finding out from newly released transcripts that he never even set foot inside Russia to compile his dossier, and that he relied instead on an ex-journalist-turned-p.r. consultant to do much of his investigating there. In fact, this non-intelligence figure may be his main “Russian source” of information.

Some of you misguided young women (the non-misguided ones can ignore me) will resist the obvious fact that you need the romantic advice of a married, 53-year old retired Army officer who identifies as male. Well, judging from that Aziz Ansari story in babe.net, many of you sure need some guidance from someone. And since your fathers apparently went AWOL – or maybe you just didn’t listen – I’ll step in to help. Because I’m a helper. And because since so many of you are so utterly ill-equipped to interact with men, maybe you need a man to mansplain things

Schumer´s shutdown reveals: Democrats
will destroy America just to spite Trump
The Hill [DC], by Tommy Hicks, Jr.    Original Article

Donald Trump was inaugurated one year ago after promising to make America great again. Throughout the campaign everyone knew what he believed, though it was not clear what his opponents stood for. The Schumer shutdown has revealed the totality of the Democrats’ agenda: animosity and amnesty. When President Trump set out to deliver historic tax cuts for the American people, Democrats sat on their hands, rather than participating in the legislative process. Now they’ve come off the sidelines to actively sabotage the government established to serve the American people. Their stated reason for doing so is even more astounding than the act itself. Never before

Choose any measurement, and the result is the same: Democrats are headed for a major victory in the November midterms. The generic ballot tells us voters prefer Democrats to Republicans by a 10-point average. The president’s approval ratings, a historically useful guide to his party’s midterm hopes? The lowest at this point of any in recorded history. Recent special elections? Democrats took a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama for the first time in 30 years and a Wisconsin state Senate seat that had stayed Republican for 17 years. The average swing to Democrats in the four special elections so far:

Say, whatever happened to that guy who got stuck with the job of being DNC Chairman last year? You remember him, right… Tom Perez? He’s sort of dropped off the media radar lately. Maybe he’s just busy raising money and gearing up for the midterms. That would make sense, but things aren’t always that simple in the real world. I noticed a press release from the RNC this week which claims that Perez has been holed up in his office quite a bit and DNC insiders are saying that although he campaigned for the position with great gusto, Perez actually

Statue of Liberty to reopen

The doors to the Statue of Liberty will reopen Monday — despite the fed shutdown of all non-essential government services. Gov. Cuomo announced Sunday the beacon-handed beauty, who stands on US Park land, would continue to let visitors in through $65,000 a day in state funding. “She’s resting, she deserves it,” Cuomo said at a Sunday press conference before the shuttered landmark. “She’s had a stressful few weeks but she’s gonna go back to work tomorrow, and that’s what were here to announce.” To keep Liberty Island open for business, the state arranged with the US Department of Interior to temporarily pay federal

How illegal immigrant Dreamers amassed
power to force government shutdown

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. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of

Malia Obama, who is studying at Harvard University, has boyfriend! But some black people on Twitter have questioned her choice in men, because Malia´s new homey, Rory Farquharson, is white. (5 tweets) This racism on the part of some in the black community, who are bruddas and sistas to us all, is very sad. Most white people want us to grow together as a community. I just wish everyone of all races felt the same way. Questions for discussion: After years of Obama´s race baiting, President Trump is the first "post-racial" president to follow him.

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no

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

The mood on the international conference call at the beginning of this month was somber as Ian Bremmer, president of the political risk consulting firm Eurasia Group, prepared to list off top global dangers in the coming year. Bremmer began with a show-stopping line:"If we had to pick one year for a big unexpected crisis — the geopolitical equivalent of the 2008 financial meltdown — it feels like 2018." The reasons are many, Bremmer cited, but the most prominent causes for global insecurity stem from U.S. President Donald Trump´s move away from global leadership, and China´s eagerness to fill the

New text messages from anti-Trump FBI agents reviewed by investigators reportedly make reference to a "secret society," in what could be the nail in the coffin for special counsel Robert Mueller´s Russia investigation. Investigators have reviewed 50,000 text messages on FBI servers looking for all exchanges between anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page during the 2016 election, Fox News reported. The revelation comes as investigators are seeking the whereabouts of approximately five months´ worth of text messages between Page and Strzok.

WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called the government shutdown a “manufactured crisis” created by Democrats who want a permanent Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) fix, which he referred to as a “non-emergency” issue that does not belong in the short-term spending bill to continue federal government operations. “The one non-emergency issue our friends on the other side of the aisle are trying to shoehorn into this discussion doesn’t reach that status of emergency until March. This is pure folly. The American people know so, that´s why in a recent survey a majority said keeping the government open

Chuck Schumer is taking his big spending boost for Donald Trump’s border wall off the table. The Senate minority leader, through an aide, informed the White House on Monday that he was retracting the offer he made last week to give Trump well north of the $1.6 billion in wall funding Trump had asked for this year, according to two Democrats. 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. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the No. 2 Senate Democrat. “He called the White House yesterday and said

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,

The Senate on Monday was set to hold a successful vote to reopen the federal government, after Senate Democrats agreed to let the bill through even though it doesn´t include immigration language they are seeking. "We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the floor. Under the bill up to be called up, the government would be fully funded through Feb. 8, and it would fund the Children´s Health Insurance Program for six years. It would also reopen the government, which has been partially closed since midnight
