  • ‘Bama Says ‘NO Moore’

    by coldwarrior ( 122 Comments › )
    Filed under Election 2017, Open thread at December 13th, 2017 - 10:20 am

    Judge Moore lost in deep deep red Alabama to a Democrat. I honestly can say that I am surprised. I assumed that the Evangelical Vote was there just enough for him to pull it out. Let’s face it, this election should not have been even close. Moore was the wrong candidate, Strange or Mo Brooks would have won this thing going away and Trump knew it. Strange or Brooks would have voted 99/100 the same as Moore in the Senate. Bannon’s power play failed. and now there is a Democrat Senator From Alabama. A Democrat Senator From Alabama.

    Instead of an easy win with a great candidate, the Moron Bannon decided to push a pedophile, frankly, into the election. Honestly, if I were a ‘Bama voter I would have sat on my hands yesterday. Moore had a thing for teenie-boppers when he was in his 30’s (and I don’t care if they were ‘of age’). I have 3 daughters, if a 30-something showed up to date one of them in their teens he and I would go downstairs to the bar, share a scotch and even a cigar, and then we would have a discussion. We would talk about which would hurt worse, bird shot/rock salt to the balls or 00-buck to the thoracic cavity, would it be worse to be castrated with a a red-hot bolt-cutter or have the jewels repeatedly smashed with Louisville’s Finest Maple Baseball Bat? We would also discuss various bursting pressures of the male testicle when placed in different anatomical positions while using a hand-cranked vice; there may even be a discussion of the finer more violent points of Pecak Silat. All of this wide ranging, erudite banter would occur whilst I cleaned one of the AKs.

    My assumption about the Evangelicals was wrong. They did what exactly I would have done. They stayed home and I give them kudos for that. Moore was the wrong guy and all of his bluster and stunts yielded nothing. So, what have we learned? We saw this happen a few times before. We need to run Trump/America First candidates who aren’t puritanical firebrands with a hangup for teenie-boppers (or any other bizarre predilections). We also learned the Trump was right again, and Bannon was wrong, again. And Bannon is too close to Lyin’ Ted Cruz for my liking.

    I will of course assume that Jones won’t be re-elected once the GOP in ‘Bama runs a less weird candidate.

    Joe Manchen in WV should be flipped to GOP. Time to make a deal.

    On to 2018!

      hmmm…
      voter fraud…nah, no such thing

      http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2017/12/in_final-hour_order_court_rule.html

      In final-hour order, court rules that Alabama can destroy digital voting records after all


    2. 2 | December 13, 2017 11:09 am

      This is crazier and crazier every second. Why destroy the records at ALL?


    3. 3 | December 13, 2017 11:15 am

      Sad to hear — Mo Brooks has announced on the House Floor that he has prostate cancer. Prayers for his recovery. Had HE been the candidate, I think Doug Jones would be sitting at home in his underwear and his ugly mug in front of the TV looking like the guy in the “Lending Tree” commercial.

      McConnell worked overtime to taint Mo Brooks in the primary, pulling his oh-so-fabulous race card and other garbage, as I recall. I think he thought his candidate Strange would be able to beat Moore handily in a runoff. When that didn’t happen, I think he orchestrated the write-in campaign.

      Oh, and isn’t it interesting that a Jeb Bush operative is the one that gave the WaPo reporters the head’s up on the Moore allegations. Wasn’t Jeb one of McConnell’s FAVORITE candidates back in the day. The establishment guy with the donor money. I don’t think this is a coincidence. I have a sneaking feeling it was McConnell who set this whole business in motion and used one of Jeb’s guys to do it. Because Luther didn’t win the run-off.

      All because Alabama wouldn’t kowtow to McConnell. Dude has to go.


    4. 4 | December 13, 2017 11:18 am

      HOWEVER, if McConnell thinks the defeat of Moore is a validation of his agenda and establishment policies, he’s more full of crap than a septic tank.


    5. 5 | December 13, 2017 11:59 am

      To his credit, Trump sent out a gracious tweet congratulating the pie-faced baby killer on his win in Alabama.

      Of course, let’s thank Jeff Sessions for resigning a deep red seat to become an ineffecutual recusal-machine of an Attorney General.

      @ rain of lead:

      So she says. There is scuttlebutt that it can be proven she’s been paying these women to come forward. Her other problem is her lying client in Alabama. She thinks that because Moore lost, she and the liar can slink back into the background, which is her modus operandi.

      Allred may not have a law license by the time the 2018 elections roll around. I don’t know what she’s going to do if the GOP works overtime to find themselves qualified WOMEN to run for those seats. Her smear campaign against Meg Whitman in California involved an illegal not paid for overtime which in essence exposed to “client” to deportation.

      But we need to VET these candidates folks. And more importantly, if the Dems and media are going to dig up dirt on our candidates, it’s time WE headed to Home Depot for some shovels of our own.

      I can’t think what it could be. Rod Rosenstein went on record today as saying he doesn’t see any reason to “fire Mueller.” What the ever-lovin’ EFF?? I think Rosenstein needs to go. Trump can fire him without any repercussions. He’s not part of the investigation and it goes on whether Rosenstein is there or not.

      If that’s the take-away from the Moore race, then I don’t understand. The man has held public office off and on for decades, thru multiple races. What more ‘vetting’ could have been done? The fact that none of these allegations had come up during all that time was one of the best arguments against them.

      Like it or not, the lesson any potential GOP candidate is going to take away from this is that unless the GOPe support is there, your opponent can destroy you and your family for a generation and you will have no recourse.

      People are throwing dirt on Bannon’s grave and they’d better hope they’re right. Because on his good days, he’s formidable, piss him off and the best you can hope for is a grave somebody can find.

      They will do what they all seem to do. Fade away now that they’ve accomplished what they wanted to.

      But NELSON may not be so lucky. She’s hoping to fade away but damn if Moore doesn’t have grounds to sue her. And name that Shyster Allred as a co-defendant.

      Not to mention criminal charges. She FORGED Moore’s last name on that yearbook and it can be argued that she did it for a personal “gain” and that Allred as an attorney proferred a forgery as evidence of a crime.

      Willett is an impeccable jurist with impeccable credentials – his letters of recommendation to the Senate Judiciary Committee crossed the political spectrum. The fact that they voted for him 52 to 48 for his confirmation shows what a-holes they really are. And Malary and Moroni’s desire for 15 minutes before the microphones after announcing on Twitter. Even people on THEIR side were asking where were the examples.

      @ eaglesoars:

      5th Circuit is venued in New Orleans, Louisiana. I had a couple of appeals earlier this year and they produced well-reasoned decisions in both. Of course, must claim bias. We won both. Upheld the District Court’s decisions for us in both.

      He would be wasted on the 9th. Too many liberals on the Court for him to even make the slightest difference. There are maybe four originalists on the Circuit. Even if a Constitutional cause wins at the hot bench level, the court invariably grants a petition for hearing en banc so that the rest of the liberal justices can neuter it.

      So I think it’s a good idea to learn from other’s experiences when we try new things. Such as, building a border wall to prevent illegal immigration. Such a wall has been built at Calais to prevent people sneaking onto trucks to get into the UK. It’s half a mile long and 13 feet high. One oversight tho.

      Black Lives Matter Activist Sues Fox News, Jeanine Pirro

      Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson sued Fox News host Jeanine Pirro Tuesday, claiming she defamed him on national television by saying he’d incited violence against police.

      McKesson’s action is one of a series of lawsuits stemming from BLM protests in Louisiana against 2016 shooting of Alton Sterling. McKesson, who was arrested at the protest but had his charges dismissed, received more than $100,000 in damages from Baton Rouge police, according to the New York Daily News. One police officer filed a counter-suit, however, claiming protesters had thrown rocks at him and that McKesson had incited the violence. Pirro referenced this lawsuit on the show “Fox and Friends” earlier this fall.

      “In this particular case, DeRay Mckesson, the organizer, actually was directing people, was directing the violence,” Pirro said. “You’ve got a police officer who was injured, he was injured at the direction of DeRay Mckesson, DeRay Mckesson walks away with a hundred thousand dollars, for an organization that is amorphous, we got a problem in this country.”

      USA Today: Trump Is ‘Not Fit To Clean The Toilets’ At Obama’s Presidential Library
      USA Today’s editorial board issued a sharp rebuke of President Trump’s attacks on Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in which he said she “would do anything” for campaign donations.

      “A president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a whore is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes of George W. Bush,” the paper’s editorial board wrote late Tuesday.

      The paper said Trump hit “a new low” with his tweet Tuesday morning saying Gillibrand “would come to my office ‘begging’ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them).”

      Drudge just moved it to his banner, after it had been a news item in the corner. It supplanted the accusations against Tavis Smiley, who was suspended. Oh, and is MUCH, MUCH more high profile.

      Johnson supported Trump, and I think he wants the spotlight on THAT.

      I think that Matt Drudge, like all of his neighbors, though that Trump was going to lose FOR SURE, and anything supporting him that he may have linked to pre-election was a feint to the majority of his traffic.

      Heck he was linking often to Infowars, which, when taken in context could be seen as a veiled insult which merely raised eyebrows back then.

      In short, I don’t think Drudge cares much for Trump, or the people who voted for him.

      He’s just smart enough to not lose traffic.

      no he’s not. I don’t use him anymore. For whatever reason, he doesn’t post anything unique. I understand he’s an aggregator, but as brilliant as he is at ‘placement’, you’d think he’d be able to connect some dots that are easily connectable – if he cared to. His bias is one of ommission. It took me awhile yesterday to connect that Fusion GPS judge to Glenn Simpson, but I’m just one person. Imagine what HE could do.

      the bridge has tolls? how does traffic not get backed up to Seattle? I’ve been to San Fran once – back in the early 80s – and I don’t recall tolls on the bridge.

      Anyhoo, last nite I was making fun of Strzok, the counter intel wunderkind, who thought whatever phone he was using made his communication untraceable. This may be why he thought that:

      Horowitz, writing to Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, said that his office obtained the Strzok texts after asking the FBI to produce communications from bureau-issued phones for a select group of employees who worked on the Clinton email probe.

      If this is the case, it doesn’t make him any less stupid, it just may explain his faulty thinking.

      For all the screeching about the tax reform bill, Trump is saying that if it passes and is signed, middle class people will be seeing bigger paychecks – which may very well work to GOP’s advantage come 2018 mid-terms.

      I thought so too. It certainly moved at a faster pace than Season One. But maybe I’m not remembering history correctly, because it seems to be skipping around. I thought the revelations of the Profumo Affair occurred BEFORE the assassination of President Kennedy. Unless, the Queen’s reaction to the death of JFK was meant sort of as an epilogue to the “Dear Mrs. Kennedy” episode and then it jumped back to the original timeline.

      And this may be heresy, but I’ve always thought Jackie had quite an inner bitch that she unleashed when she thought no one would know. I think she DID make those snide and nasty remarks about the Queen and Buckingham Palace and then blamed her “vitamin shots” as a way of exculpation to protect her reputation as the most fabulous woman in the world.

      @ eaglesoars:

      I didn’t catch that nuance – but now that I think of it, yes, you’re right.

      Jackie’s mother, Janet Auchincloss, was a nasty piece of work. Everyone knows the story of how she manueuvered it so BlackJack Bouvier would be too drunk to get up and walk his daughter down the aisle on her wedding day to Kennedy, which meant Hugh Auchincloss, with a “better” pedigree, would be on Jackie’s arm.

      I also learned that on the night of the assassination, she made Caroline’s nurse tell her that her father was dead. Jackie had told her mother that SHE wanted to tell them when she returned from Bethesda Naval Hospital after escorting the President’s body, but that if the children were hearing of it, yes, someone should tell them. Janet took it upon herself to order the nurse do it – “Jackie wants you to tell Caroline.” When cornered about it, her excuse was “oh, I just wanted to spare my daughter this awful task.” Horses**t – she didn’t want to find herself in the position of doing it herself if it came down to it.

      That’s right Janet. Two children get to learn their father is dead not from their Mother, who would be there to comfort them, but from the hired help.

      The book is well researched and heavily footnoted, but not where you speak of allegations that the Vatican made financial contributions to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Why did you include these allegations in the book?

      This accusation was made to me unambiguously by a contact in the Vatican, whose identity I have to protect. However, the allegation is quite well known to journalists. With this and other scandals I mention, my desire was to encourage further investigation by researchers who are better qualified than I am to delve into financial matters.

      If I were Strzok’s wife, I’d start divorce proceedings now and get all the assets I can before he needs to start liquidating to pay lawyers.
