The case for Roy Moore to be Alabama’s next senator

Published

on

We have all heard the constant drumbeat of the words “drain the swamp” incessantly since November’s presidential election. While many voters thought that this would be an easy task if Donald Trump won the presidency, it turns out that it is much harder than it sounds. Even today, eight months into Trump’s presidency, we still have many Obama-era holdovers in the deep state, many establishment-types in Trump’s cabinet, and we still have the same ineffective congressional leaders in House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

It’s understandable why many Trump voters are disappointed that the swamp-draining isn’t happening quickly enough, if at all.

However, a great catalyst to this end would be electing Judge Roy Moore of Alabama to the United States Senate, to fill the seat vacated by now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

There are many reasons that Moore would be a wonderful way of getting rid of the paradigm of “politics as usual,” which has plagued the Republican Party for decades. But the main one, aside from his actual political beliefs, which are clearly conservative, is that he has proven that he will do whatever it takes to stand up for what is right, no matter the cost to him personally.

Let us begin in 2003. At the time, Moore was the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, and two years earlier, Moore had placed a monument of the Ten Commandments in front of the court, so that “to restore morality we must first recognize the source from which all morality springs.” Much controversy ensues, and U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson of Montgomery orders the monument removed for violating the constitution’s ban on establishment of religion by the government. Moore refuses, and eventually is suspended from his position.

Fast forward to 2012, when Moore is elected to another six-year term as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. Then, in 2015, U.S. District Judge Callie V.S. “Ginny” Granade rules Alabama’s marriage laws outlawing same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. Moore rejects this ruling, stating that “for one district judge to overturn the laws of Alabama — she can’t do that … Federal rules don’t allow her to do that…”

Eventually, after the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage, Moore refused to allow Alabama to issue these marriage licenses, on the grounds that the Supreme Court was overreaching and that they cannot make law, and that the Alabama Supreme Court is the court that sets the laws for the state.

Moore is again suspended without pay, effectively ending his career. Many prominent conservatives missed this, others, such as Steve Deace and Daniel Horowitz, both of Conservative Review, hail Moore as a hero for standing up for his beliefs and not taking the easy way out.

Which brings us to today. Moore is the prototype for doing what he believes is right, no matter the cost. He will not play second-fiddle to a charlatan to Mitch McConnell, who is doing whatever he can to elect Luther Strange to the Senate seat, an establishment candidate that wi be a reliable McConnell lackey. The fact that a senator from Kentucky (in reality, from K-Street) is putting so much into this race shows how worried he is that the swamp will actually be drained. One can only wonder why Trump has endorsed Strange, but we all know why McConnell did.

In comparison, Moore stands only for principle and doing the right thing. Most Americans have a negative view of politicians because of McConnell and his ilk, and that is why we must rally around anyone the D.C. swamp opposes. Because that is the perfect litmus test for who will fight for all Americans, for liberty, for the Constitution, and not K-Street and D.C. politics.

It is for this reason that I have strongly endorsed Moore for the special election scheduled tomorrow, and urge anyone reading this in Alabama to go out and vote for him.

    Trump endorsed Strange because he’s part of the swamp. He always was. Those of us who actually wanted to drain the swamp supported Ted Cruz and are not in the least surprised that the swamp hasn’t been drained. Look who Trump has surrounded himself with. There is no wonder why the swamp is intact. You don’t vote for a progressive barely Republican and expect him to clear out other progressives. Just look at the Obamacare debate. Who did Trump go after? Was it the liberal parts of the party? Nope. He attacked Conservatives who were trying to actually keep their promise to FULLY repeal Obamacare.

    Having said that Moore would be a breath of fresh air and would be a great addition to the likes of Ted Cruz and Mike Lee.

    I am a resident of Alabama, a native of the southeast, and all my ancestors are veterans of the Confederacy during the Civil War. My grandmother was born on Robert E. Lee’s birthday and was named “Robert Lee …” So I have a significant connection to the Civil War’s history in the southeast. I find it reprehensible that you, as an Orthodox Jew especially, publicly endorse and support Roy Moore. It is obscene that he uses God to promote himself, and to endorse hateful, discriminatory and divisive agendas. Refer to this and pray about your position: Acts 20:28 “Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. 29 I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. 30 Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them.” Or this scripture … Ezekiel 13:9 “My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of my people or be listed in the records of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Sovereign LORD.”

Faux conservative media ignores GOP lies on abortion

Faux conservative media ignores Trump and GOP lies on abortion

Even though Republicans have failed the pro-life litmus test ever since the Republican-nominated Supreme Court decided 46 years ago in Roe v. Wade that women have a Constitutional right to murder their unborn child, they are playing the pro-life card once again for political purposes in preparation for the 2020 election.

This was extremely obvious last month when Mitch McConnell held a show vote on the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” a bill introduced by Sen. Ben Sasse mandating medical care for babies that survive the abortion procedure attempted murder.

Like the GOP itself during the past two years of full control of Washington, the bill did nothing to bring an end to abortion. It did, however, give Mitch McConnell and the Republicans a nice political talking point to add to their 2020 election arsenal.

“This stunning, stunning extremism” will not “be the last word on the subject.”

By the way, Republicans played this same game in 2018 — an election year — with a House version of the BAASPA that died in the Senate.

I wrote last week about BlazeTV and how it had become a pro-Trump echo chamber and home of faux conservatives. In the piece, I mentioned an episode of Steve Deace’s show where he pointed out the Democrats’ “worship of abortion” and called on conservatives to “cheer” Donald Trump because he was using late-term abortion as a campaign issue.

In a rebuttal on his show the day after my article, Deace and his crew accused me of being in the “orange man bad” anti-Trump cult where criticism of Trump is only happens because we’re talking about Trump. Aside from the obvious attempt to dismiss my opinion without addressing it, my conclusions were based on Trump’s non-conservative policies, his track record of doublemindedness and broken promises regarding abortion, and BlazeTV’s decision to promote Trump as the savior of the Republic.

Yes, the Democrat party is the party of abortion and infanticide. Heck, the party’s 2016 platform championed Planned Parenthood and promised to protect government funding of their infanticide services. The platform also called for Democrats to overturn “all federal and state laws that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including repealing of the Hyde Amendment.”

The Democrat-controlled House has begun working on ways to repeal the Hyde Amendment. Claiming to possess a “pro-choice majority,” they are looking to find new ways for public funds to be used to murder the unborn, including coverage for abortions under Medicaid along with mandating abortion coverage under other government healthcare plans.

Here’s a fun fact: the much-ballyhooed Medicare for All single-payer healthcare plan being promoted by nearly every Democrat presidential candidate and some “conservative socialists” mandates coverage for abortion services. Once we have single-payer, every American will be funding the murder of unborn babies. Look for it to be included in the 2020 Democrat platform.

So, this means Deace was right about the Democrats, right? Yes, but he and others in the faux conservative media have turned this reality into a “squirrel moment” to distract voters away from the hypocrisy and lies we get from Trump — and by default, the GOP — on the abortion issue. Pointing to the obvious extremism of the Democrat Party while giving Trump a pass on abortion and “cheering” him for using it as a political weapon to get re-elected is nothing more than another edition of the #notDemocrat game we get from the GOP every election season.

Democrats haven’t had to worry about keeping their platform promise to protect Planned Parenthood because Trump and the GOP have been keeping that promise for them by not only continuing their funding, but increasing it. They have also increased funding for harvesting body parts from aborted babies for research purposes, included experiments using human fetal tissue on mice — tissue that comes from Planned Parenthood.

Democrats are pro-abortion to the extreme and Republicans are no different. But the GOP gets to hide behind the cover of a so-called conservative media that is all too willing to play the deceptive #notDemocrat game while “cheering” Trump and the GOP for tickling their ears.

Releasing the full Mueller report would destroy the Democratic Party for 2020 if it’s clean

Releasing the full Mueller report would destroy the Democratic Party for 2020 if its clean

Let’s play the hypothetical game. Now that Attorney General William Barr’s summary of Robert Mueller’s Russian election hacking report has indicated the President and his campaign did not collude with the Russians, the only thing the left can do is hope for a release of the full report. In it, they hope to find evidence that there really was collusion and possibly obstruction of justice, but not enough evidence to indict anyone on it. In the court of public opinion, it may be enough to win the 2020 election.

But what if there’s nothing? What if the Mueller report makes it even more clear than AG Barr’s conclusion that collusion didn’t occur? In that scenario, releasing the report would give the GOP every ounce of ammunition they need to sink the Democratic Party for the foreseeable future.

Imagine all the soundbites and Tweets of Democrats, media shills, and Hollywood activists over the last 22 months declaring with a certainty that the investigation was necessary, that it would yield fruit, and that it wasn’t a witch hunt. Now, imagine a Republican Party that was actually savvy when it comes to winning elections. I know it’s difficult to picture based on RNC’s campaign illiteracy, but try your hardest to picture effectiveness in campaign messaging by the GOP. Such a scenario would put dozens of Democrats across the nation in jeopardy based solely on the gigantic waste of time, energy, and personal investment.

They promised us they were going to take down the President and prove he stole the 2016 election. They banked on the notion that the only reason Hillary Clinton lost is because Donald Trump cheated. They screamed through tears of desperation in trying to protect Mueller because they assumed the President would fire him. When none of those things panned out, they revealed their attempts to rally the people for a righteous cause were actually manifestations of their Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Can you imagine all that? Good. Now, let’s look at the reality of the situation.

If the report is not released soon, it’s very likely there are things in there that the President doesn’t want made public. There would be no other reason to keep it sealed, especially after declaring that it should be released. The shadow of the report is going to grow much bigger than the meat of the report itself. The left is already playing like the Barr summary was just a smokescreen so the administration could keep the report sealed without getting backlash.

On the other hand, holding the report back for a little while could be the 4D chess we always hear about in regards to the President’s campaign strategies. If he can get the left banking even more on the report as their smoking gun before releasing it to reveal a giant nothingburger, it may not just be a few dozen Democrats across the nation in sudden election jeopardy. It could be the end for literally hundreds of them.

Don’t assume if the report gets held from the public for a while that it has something bad in it. If it gets released in a month or two after every Democratic candidate screams for it, then the nothinburger will be a poison pill for their whole party.

Venezuela is colluding with Russia while America is distracted by Trump not colluding with Russia

Venezuela is colluding with Russia while America is distracted by Trump not colluding with Russia

Two Russian jets carrying troops and equipment landed in Caracas, Venezuela, as part of a mission to “fullfil technical military contracts,” according to Russian media. But it’s almost certain this is part of Russia’s play on Venezuela to prop up socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro just as they did with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

Meanwhile, most Americans who follow the news cycle were bombarded with perspectives on Attorney General William Barr’s summary of the Robert Mueller investigation report. In it, President Trump and his 2016 campaign were found to not have colluded with the Russians in their election hacking endeavors.

My Take

While most were focused on fake Russian collusion, the real thing was happening in one of the world’s hottest spots, Venezuela.

Russia’s play here is simple: keep Maduro in power at all costs. They got the drop on any actions the United States may have been planning, though it’s unlikely those plans included military intervention. Still, Russia isn’t taking any chances. By getting troops and equipment on the ground, they’ll be able help Maduro by offering cover from outside actions while bolstering his support internally.

Any defections or coup attempts will be much less likely with Russia directly involved.

The opposition leader who America and over 50 other nations consider to be the rightful interim president, Juan Guaido, has been trying to get international support while maintaining domestic support, but Maduro’s move may have prevented that from happening.

In essence, the battle over Venezuela is now over. It’s unfathomable to conceive of action by the United States or any other’s who support Guaido other than diplomatic efforts that will accomplish nothing. Venezuela is doomed to retain their socialist dictator now.
