In Alabama, the Democrats played to win, the Republicans played to lose, and both got what they wanted. The media had declared victory no matter the outcome, hoping for a Jones win but also salivating over the prospect of using Moore as the poster boy of the GOP for the next year. “It was a win-win,” they kept saying. But when Jones did finally win, that line was quickly abandoned and the rejoicing began. Strangely, it took a long time for MSNBC to call the race for Jones. Fox had called it much earlier. So its gloating was tentative at

GOP Elites- once again snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Handing this seat to despicable bstd like Jones is unconscionable. McConnell is the bad boy here- petty politics was his game. To think of the GOP letting a seat go to a GD Democrat in a pure red state like Alabama is almost inconceivable. But, the GOP sure as Hell let it happen. They played with gasoline and matches and sure as Satan got burned. And to think, I got called last night and begged to be donating to the GOP.

In case anyone forgets, Shelby was a Democrat. Changed when he realized he would never win again as a Dem in Alabama.

The Republicans lost it themselves. If the swamp creatures had supported Moore from the start, instead of telling people to write in candidate names, he would have won. This is absolutely why the Rino´s in the swamp have to go in coming elections. The people of Alabama who judged Moore guilty of bad behavior without any evidence or trail have done a tremendous disservice to the state of Alabama and the country.

We have to run good candidates. When we nominate a person who already has a controversial history (I don´t mean the underage girls), we operate under a beginning handicap. But, we never seem to learn and we lose important seats because of it.

The GOP specializes in defeat with ´honor´. It´s their motif. I believe Moore was a poor candidate and I dreaded the senate show if he had won. Democrats would have enjoyed it all.
I wouldn´t have voted for Jones and a write in candidate is pure horse hockey. Staying home is about all a person can do in this situation so Alabama got what they wanted.
Democrats are celebrating and Franken is staying. Alabama can right themselves in two years but will it be too late?

The word “shithole” was projected onto President Trump’s D.C. hotel Saturday. Video shows the word, along with the poop emoji, being projected onto the property. “Pay Trump bribes here,” “emoluments welcome” and “we are all responsible to stand up and end white supremacy” were also projected onto the building. Trump has faced intense backlash for calling Haiti, El Salvador and African nations “shithole countries” during an Oval Office meeting on immigration this week. “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump reportedly said, before suggesting that the U.S. bring in more immigrants from countries like

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,

Quiet jockeying for McCain
seat angers Republicans

PHOENIX — Ambitious Republicans anxious for a shot at a U.S. Senate seat have begun quietly jockeying to be appointed as the successor to Sen. John McCain (R), even as he battles an aggressive form of brain cancer. The lobbying campaigns, described to The Hill by half a dozen GOP strategists and aides, have angered many Republicans, who see any public chatter as disrespectful to a senator who has helped shape modern Arizona. Chief among those upset is the man who would make an appointment, Gov. Doug Ducey (R), who issued a brushback pitch during a radio appearance last week.

LOUISVILLE, Ky.-- Kentucky State Rep. Dan Johnson, who was under investigation for alleged sexual molestation, died of a "probable suicide," the Bullitt County coroner said. Bullitt County Sheriff Donnie Tinnell said Johnson drove on to the bridge over the Salt River on Greenwell Ford Road in Mt. Washington, parked on the north side of it and shot himself in front of his car. His body was found on the bank of the river, just past the bridge. Just before 5 p.m. Wednesday, Johnson posted the following message on his Facebook page:

The ´socialist´ doctor charged with cracking Senator Rand Paul´s ribs in a crunching blindside tackle may have harbored a secret grudge against his GOP neighbor for spoiling his lakeside views and ´devaluing´ his home, DailyMail.com can reveal. Rene Boucher, 59, told Paul in the wake of the mauling that he hadn´t been able to sell his $740,000 house for ten years because the congressman´s trees were ´in the way´. It´s believed Boucher was referring to woodland at the back of Paul´s property that blocks the doctor´s views of the picturesque private lake that forms the centerpiece of their upscale gated

Roger Goodell has demanded $50million per year and a private jet for life in order to stay on as NFL chairman, it has been reported. Goodell made the demands in a written counterproposal to the six-man NFL Compensation Committee which is due to debate his pay package on Monday, sources told ESPN. Earlier this year all 32 NFL team owners voted to renew Goodell´s contract, which runs until 2019, and nominated the committee to negotiate on their behalf. But amid plummeting viewer numbers and anger over anthem protests, some owners are now fighting to take matters back into their own hands. Jerry

The Cato 2017 Free Speech and Tolerance Survey, a new national poll of 2,300 U.S. adults, finds that 71% Americans believe that political correctness has silenced important discussions our society needs to have. The consequences are personal—58% of Americans believe the political climate prevents them from sharing their own political beliefs. Democrats are unique, however, in that a slim majority (53%) do not feel the need to self-censor. Conversely, strong majorities of Republicans (73%) and independents (58%) say they keep some political beliefs to themselves.

The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal.

More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign.

Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said.

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,

Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Friday that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has become "sort of the Steve King of the Senate," a reference to one of the House´s most ardent immigration hardliners. In an interview with MSNBC, Graham, who has advocated for legislative protections for young, undocumented immigrants, rejected the notion of ending family-based immigration in exchange for enshrining the protections of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program into law. A proposal by Cotton and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) seeks to end so-called chain migration, which allows U.S. citizens and permanent residents to sponsor family members abroad to

There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.
