Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has always opposed Roy Moore. He opposed him in the original primaries. He opposed him during the Alabama GOP runoff. He was instant with his response to allegations last week made by four women in an article in the Washington Post. Monday, he announced Moore should step aside, but this time he didn’t include his originally qualifier of the allegations being true.
In other words, because he “believes the women,” he thinks Moore should step aside immediately.
This isn’t unprecedented. Other Senators and prominent Republicans have gone on record saying the women’s stories were credible or that if Moore can’t prove he’s innocent, he should drop out of the race. What makes this significant is that it’s coming from the Senate Majority Leader.
While due process does not apply in the court of public opinion, one has to question McConnell’s motives. Would he be so insistent if it were Luther Strange, the candidate McConnell backed, who had won the primary and found himself as the accused?
Here’s the funny part. McConnell is so unpopular, particularly in conservative states, that this expansion of his attacks could could actually have an unintended effect. It could embolden Moore to stay in the race while also rallying support behind him.
There are three things conservatives generally hate the most: liberals, mainstream media, and “RINOs” (Republicans In Name Only). Moore is currently being attacked by all three. Despite the accusations, he may still be able to win the Senate seat. Imagine the stir that would cause.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called on Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore to “step aside” on Monday and said of Moore’s accusers, “I believe the women,” per the AP. Four women have accused Moore of sexual advances when they were between 14 and 17 and he was in his 30s.
The backdrop: Most Republican senators who have spoken out about the accusations against Mooore have said he should drop out — if the allegations are true. McConnell added no such qualifier. This is setting up as a proxy war, with Steve Bannon (who has called for McConnell to be removed as speaker) on a mission to discredit Moore’s accusers and McConnell intent on forcing Moore from the race.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
