Judge Roy Moore, you just did not get it. I know, I know, you are a brilliant strict constructionist. So brilliant are you that you defeated your enemies twice to gain victories to the Alabama State Supreme Court. When you saw America surrendering to the immoral machinations of the Left, in 2003, you founded the Foundation for Moral Law to educate the public and promote current litigation activity aimed at moral and religious issues. Your organization is anti-abortion, opposed to same-sex marriage, and supportive of public prayer. Your ideologies and values were easy to embrace by the Right's voters. You fed them red meat and they howled in celebration. However, behind the political iron curtain, you were always a threat to the status quo. The Establishment thought you were cute and deemed you a tool that could cloak their clandestine political and judicial pursuits as palatable endeavors on behalf of the American people. They simmered at your ability to stand amidst the torrid of criticism that you faced when you refused to surrender the Ten Commandments to the Left. They, behind your back, joked about you being a "good ol' boy" when you refused to surrender marriage to the LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ community. You, Judge Moore, were merely a Dixie phenom. A warrior for morality and black-robed preacher of the American way. You were not a threat to the 695 - 495 - 295 Corridor of Washington, DC.
Judge Moore, you just did not understand that you were not welcomed in Washington, DC. Certainly, you are not welcomed amongst the Establishment. You will pay an ultimate price if you ever left the red clay fields of Alabama for the privileged marble of Capitol Hill. You would pay dearly, indeed.
"Drain the Swamp, Drain the Swamp!"
Yes, the American voters stood on their rooftops and yelled this at decibels that the world would soon experience in bodily form. Former Senator, now Attorney General, Jeff Sessions barnstormed, now President, Donald John Trump around the Roll Tide State promising that the status quo was dead. The Washington Swamp would be drained. Obama Care would be repealed. Hillary Rodham Clinton would be locked up. Noone would ever again deny the Voices of the American People. We would Make America Great Again. Judge Moore, you were part of the new, bold fervor of the "deplorable" man. You told Alabamans that if you could not help the State remain sovereign as Chief Justice that you certainly would go to Washington to try to change it from there. Resigning from the Alabama Supreme Court in April 2017, you announced your run for the vacated United States Senate seat, upon Sessions' confirmation as Attorney General of the United States. The Establishment thought you were cute and deemed you a worthy adversary for US Senator Luther Strange, who was appointed to the vacated post by none other than then-Governor Robert "I plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges related to campaign finance law" Julian Bentley. Yes, the Establishment believed this would be your last hurrah and what a noble way to retire from all things political such an ideological pain in the gluteus maximus as Judge Moore.
"Drain the Swamp, Drain the Swamp!"
Alabama wasn't even on the radar during the Summer of 2017. All America knew was that Alabama was a "safe" state. It was Red from the Appalachian Mountains of Jackson County to the Gulf of Mexico shores of Baldwin County. Alabama was going to have two GOP Senators in the US Senate no matter what. We can yawn and focus on more exciting things like Kim Jung-Un and the Nuclear War, Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, or even better, Charlottesville. Yes, America, nothing to see here. Move along from Alabama.
What many did not see in Alabama is how reticent the GOP were to the Trump Agenda, the Cries of Revolution from the Citizenry, and America's sincere commitment to "Draining the Swamp". The Establishment was so entrenched with its formidable brace against the people that they were willing to spend over $30 million in the Summer of 2017 to stop two ardent conservatives in the US Senate Race--US Representative Mo Brooks and Judge Moore.
"McConnell is responding in kind. His super PAC is set to spend as much as $8 million to boost his favored candidate, recently appointed Republican Sen. Luther Strange. McConnell has activated his sprawling donor network and pressed the White House for more resources. And the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the Senate GOP campaign arm McConnell controls, has warned consultants they'll be cut off from future work if they assist Strange’s opponents."
Yes, the same Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, that could not get Obama Care repealed, increased the National Debt, and seems to be failing in tax reform negotiations on Capitol Hill, launches a "nuclear" campaign funding attack against the people of Alabama and their beloved Judge.
"But it also underscores his struggles managing his narrow Senate majority, which were punctuated by the collapse of Obamacare repeal legislation last week after three Republicans broke ranks."
Despite McConnell's money, the people of Alabama were not having the GOP influence. The polls daily showed the ever advancing number of voters favoring Moore over Strange. The GOP threats from the 695 - 495 - 295 Corridor of Washington, DC did not demur the outstanding deplorable rage. A week before the special election, Strange was polling well behind Moore. So threatened by Judge Moore's potential primary victory over Strange that McConnell that he called upon the Swamp Drainer In Chief to publicly endorse the Establishment candidate Senator Strange. It was Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee that convinced Trump to make the trek to Alabama and support Strange over Moore. How did that work? The Trump Rally was not enough to secure a Strange victory or McConnell's hold on the US Senate. Roy Moore got 55% of the Alabama Vote. Trump wasted his political capital. McConnell lost his eventual control over the US Senate. The Establishment once thought you were cute, Judge Moore. You were now a threat. Alabama and you would pay dearly, indeed. If America has not learned what the Establishment can do the Trump Agenda then, they would certainly learn what it could do to "Drain the Swamp" Electorate. They will learn that the GOP Establishment does not govern, the GOP Establishment RULES!
People of Alabama and the Deplorables Around the World, I want to explain to you that nothing is above or beneath those that serve the Establishment in the Belly of the Beast. I understand that many of you believed by voting Trump into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue that he would lead the swamp drain. To some of you, your faith is so great that you believe the author of the Art of the Deal would not compromise your allegiance for political favor with the Establishment. To some, many of you believe that the GOP Establishment would never partner with the Marxists~Socialists~Democrats to control America's economic and political agenda. I truly want you to understand, good people of Alabama and the Deplorables Around the World, that this is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats. You are in a War to empty the Forbidden City and the Establishment will not surrender.
Regarding the Russia, Russia, Russia "matter" that has cost millions to explore and render no evidence, the Democrats were not alone in attempting to reveal "the dirt" on Presidential candidate Donald Trump. Imagine how many papers could be sold if it were true that Trump was in Moscow with prostitutes and had urinated in a bed where former President Barack Obama had lain. Yes, the dossier that has made what's happening in Hollywood with Louis C. K., Kevin Spacey, and Harvey Weinstein seems as innocent as two teenagers holding hands while riding the Ferris Wheel at the State Fair. We knew it was the Democrats that funded this hit piece on Trump but the rumors persisted that Republicans were involved. But who would work so hard with Fusion GPS on the Republican side of the aisle against Donald Trump?
Since its launch in February of 2012, the Washington Free Beacon has retained third party firms to conduct research on many individuals and institutions of interest to us and our readers. In that capacity, during the 2016 election cycle we retained Fusion GPS to provide research on multiple candidates in the Republican presidential primary, just as we retained other firms to assist in our research into Hillary Clinton. All of the work that Fusion GPS provided to the Free Beacon was based on public sources, and none of the work product that the Free Beacon received appears in the Steele dossier. The Free Beacon had no knowledge of or connection to the Steele dossier, did not pay for the dossier, and never had contact with, knowledge of, or provided payment for any work performed by Christopher Steele. Nor did we have any knowledge of the relationship between Fusion GPS and the Democratic National Committee, Perkins Coie, and the Clinton campaign.
If the Establishment would work this hard, do you not think, Alabama, that Judge Moore would be the next big hit? The Establishment Will Not Be Spurned.
On Thursday, November 9, 2017, the Washington Post writers Stephanie McCrummen, Beth Reinhard and Alice Crites report: "Woman says Roy Moore initiated sexual encounter when she was 14, he was 32". The report advises that "Aside from [Leigh] Corfman, three other women interviewed by The Washington Post in recent weeks say Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s, episodes they say they found flattering at the time, but troubling as they got older. None of the three women say that Moore forced them into any sort of relationship or sexual contact." So let me get this straight Establishment forces, just weeks before Judge Moore becomes the next US Senator representing Alabama, the world learns that he "allegedly" had sexual contact with underage girls when he was a middle-aged man. Wait a minute, just weeks after we learned that Kevin Spacey, in a "drunken stupor"--it's always right to blame it on the alco-alco-alcohol--laid a 14-year-old boy on his bed in an attempt to rape him, we now learn that Judge Moore allegedly made sexual advances against a child.
The Establishment wants us to believe that after nearly 40 years of public services as a district attorney, circuit court judge, state supreme court justice and then, chief of the supreme court, Alabama overlooked this former US Army Captain that served in Vietnam, record regarding sexual assault. Really, Establishment? In addition, the persons that allege these high crimes and misdemeanors against Judge Moore have themselves questionable characters and motivations. Leigh Corfman allegedly has a history of making false allegations, charged with misdemeanors, and had issues with IRS. She also has claimed several pastors at various churches have made sexual advances toward her. Deborah Wesson Gibson is a Democrat volunteer for Roy Moore’s Democrat opponent Doug Jones and signs language interpreter for Joe Biden. Yet, the Establishment wants you to jump on the line Alabama and place your hopes in a write-in campaign for Strange or vote for the Democrat.
No, Ken, you misunderstand. Must be all of those years of living in the Belly of the Beast that has you all wound up in conspiracy theorems. It's a shame that you are coming against your own Party, just like Donna Brazile. You guys need to stop it and just repudiate Judge Moore.
Where does one go too boldly incriminate Judge Moore with scandal if you are confessed Establishment Republican? Where do you go to prosecute Moore as a pedophile in the Court of Public Opinion, where the guilt is permanent and the sentences are eternal political damnation. You go to John McCain TV on MSNBC!
“I don’t have the words to express my shame...What we’re talking about here, Chris, is a 14-year-old little girl. Roy Moore is a pedophile. He’s a child molester...There needs to be a repudiation, not just a rescission of an endorsement...He should be called on to get out of the race.”
~~GOP strategist Steve Schmidt, who served as the campaign manager for Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) 2008 presidential bid
"The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying," said Sen. John McCain of Arizona in a statement. "He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of."
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn told CNN, "I find it deeply disturbing and troubling," later adding, "It's up to the governor and the folks of Alabama to make that decision."
Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins tweeted, "If there is any truth at all to these horrific allegations, Roy Moore should immediately step aside as a Senate candidate."
National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Chairman Cory Gardner said in a statement, "If these allegations are found to be true, Roy Moore must drop out of the Alabama special Senate election." With that, the GOP ceases the money flow into the Judge's coffers.
DC Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, "This is a grenade thrown into this campaign."
Yes, I added the Democrat from Washington, DC to imply the power of the Establishment. By the way, Reporter Bruce Johnson represents the purity of media to judge falsely as fact since the culprit is a Republican. It is good to know that accusing someone of pedophilia beyond the statute of limitations so that the charges can never truly be proven in the Court of Law substantiates the Media in condemning the person in whole. Unless, of course, it was the alc-alco-alcohol. By the way, Mr. Johnson, why not include the facts that the accusers have biased or questionable motivations. I apologize. That would be reporting the news and there is no room for defense against false accusations in the courtrooms of the media. Especially, if you are a Christian conservative.
What do we really know?
Judge Moore has been found guilty of "allegations". President Trump was found guilty of allegations in the courts of public opinion regarding the "Russia, Russia, Russia" scandal. So much so, that the Establishment Democrats wish to proceed with a Constitutional Impeachment. Yet, now, the White House urges Judge Moore to step aside because these allegations must be true.
What are allegations?
The Online Etymology Dictionary defines "allegation" as an "action of alleging, formal declaration in court". Its origins are related to the Latin, "assertion of a party to a suit or action, which he intends to prove." Stop right there! Is there any intention to prove these remarks in a court of law or to give Judge Moore the Constitutional right to "face" his accusers? All please say, "Hades No!"
In the days of "Teddy" Roosevelt, our esteemed scholars referred to this as "muckraking". The efforts of journalists that practice this is not to get at the truth but, to demean the character of men and to spread gossip. A muckraker is "one who inquires into and publishes scandal and allegations of corruption among political and business leaders." They knew the power of smearing an opponent. It does not matter if your party is for or against a behavior or has stood by someone that is guilty of said allegations, you must always take a moral high ground against your opponent. Indeed, he or she does not have to be guilty of any said offense, they just need to appear guilty of the allegation. Your opponent will have to go on the defense and then, waste valuable campaign time going off message. He or she will be so focused on defense that the opponent can go on the offense with his message and "public opinion" approved condemnation of the opponent's character. If done right, your opponent will cease to campaign altogether and literally die in the polls.
Urban Family Talk's Lionchaser Host Lonnie Poindexter, while in Seoul, Korea, put it this way, "Let me share with you a little secret. They are going to come out the woodwork with accusations all the way up to the election and then mysteriously disappear. Why? Because the checks from the opposition candidate will have cleared the bank by then."
Judge Moore, you are guilty of the "allegation" of pedophilia. It does not matter that Kevin Spacey is guilty of pedophilia, for even GOP Christian conservatives would continue to watch him in House of Cards on Netflix. Democrats are not ashamed to say that a "sexual predator" is an acceptable politician on their side of the aisle. Democrats know that the Republican Establishment will bend to merely "the accusation" on their side of the aisle. Democrats know that the Establishment finds them no threat for they can co-exist in power. The GOP Establishment seems more fit in the role of barking chihuahua than roaring lion. The Washington Establishment and some White House surrogates are more willing to compromise than please the electorate. Alabama, Judge Moore is now a serious threat to this country club called the US Senate.
Democrats know that the GOP has been throwing grenades into the Trump agenda all year. They do not want an "outsider" to succeed in Washington, for that threatens the intensive hold of the Establishment. Are the Election Years 2018 and 2020 worthy of losing to the Democrat Party for the sake of keeping the rift-raft Christian conservative, Trump supporters out of Washington and out of the "Big Tent"? You better believe it! Alabama and the Nation at Large, if you want to reform America then, you better tell the Washington Establishment that you have "a pen and a phone". You have a pen to write checks directly to the Moore campaign rather than through the GOP. You have a phone and will call at least ten (10) other people to do the same. I don't if President Trump wants to fight this one. It might be a little strange. However, if you want to Make America Great Period (MAGP) then, Alabama, you damn better fight this and force the US Senate to accept your Son.
