  • Roy Moore is waging war on Senate leader Mitch McConnell

    Roy Moore is on the warpath against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. As Republicans here reckon with allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore, their nominee in next month's Senate election is trying to turn the race into a referendum on whether McConnell has spent too much time on Alabama politics and too little advancing President Donald Trump's agenda in Washington. There are signs that his attacks are resonating with Republicans in some corners of Alabama. "I'm picking up a strong sense that people are not happy that people from outside the state, particularly the Washington establishment, are trying to come...

    Gloria Allred, the attorney for Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson, says she won’t permit an inspection of her client’s high school yearbook unless the Senate conducts a hearing on Nelson’ charge that Moore tried to rape her. The yearbook is important because Nelson and Allred presented it as evidence that Moore knew Nelson and had a romantic interest in her. Moore’s camp has provided reason to believe that he did not sign Nelson’s yearbook. The lawyer for his campaign notes that Moore presided over Nelson’s divorce case in 1999. He says Moore’s clerk stamped the divorce papers with the...
  • Latest Polls Show Moore Still Ahead, Despite Bogus National Poll Claims

    There has been much news recently about polls showing Democrat Doug Jones taking a commanding lead in polls over Judger Roy Moore for the Alabama Senate seat dated by Jeff Sessions. However, these polls should be taken with a major grain of salt as local, on the ground polling shows that Moore has maintained a lead among likely voters. The latest national poll that showed Jones with a lead was done by Fox News. It gives Jones an 8 point advantage. However, it was only of 600 people, and done entirely over the phone. This followed an even more dubious...

    Al Franken’s Sexual Misconduct May Have Saved Roy Moore’s U.S. Senate Bid in These 3 Ways The admission of Al Franken’s sexual misconduct continues to reverberate around the Internet. His admitted impropriety with a female reporter in 2006, along with shockingly inappropriate photographs, has received universal backlash. While Franken faces a potential ethics hearing on the matter, his conduct may have had another unintended consequence. It may have helped save Roy Moore’s U.S. Senate bid. We examine.In case you missed the unmissable, Minnesota Senator Al Franken (D-Min) was accused by news anchor Leeann Tweeden of sexual misconduct. She alleges that Franken, a comedian at the time, groped and forcibly kissed...

    Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said today she plans to vote for Roy Moore in the Dec. 12 election for the U.S. Senate despite allegations of Moore's sexual encounters with teenage girls about 40 years ago, which Moore has adamantly denied. Ivey, answering questions from reporters after the traditional Thanksgiving turkey pardon event at the governor's mansion, said protecting the Republican majority in the Senate was a major factor. "I'm going to cast my ballot on December the 12th, and I do believe the nominee of the party is the one I'll vote for," Ivey said. "I believe in the Republican...

    Birmingham, ALABAMA — Delbra Adams, Roy Moore’s former longtime secretary and judicial assistant, says that in 13 years of working for the senatorial candidate she never saw or experienced any inappropriate conduct toward women. Adams was working in Moore’s law office during the period that a new accuser claims that he groped her in the same office in 1991 after a meeting. Her desk was right outside his office door at the time. “I think he is a good man,” Adams told Breitbart News in an interview. “I don’t believe any of this. I don’t believe it until somebody actually...

    She argues that there are probably other Democrats who have committed sexual misconduct, so “if we set this precedent in the interest of demonstrating our party’s solidarity with harassed and abused women, we’re only going to drain the swamp of people who, however flawed, still regularly vote to protect women’s rights and freedoms.”

    Since last week, the political news has been dominated not by the Bob Menendez corruption trial, not by the fight to pass tax reform in the House, which happened Thursday, not by the rather stupendous accomplishments of the president and his team during his Asia trip — including bailing out three UCLA basketball players who stupidly got themselves arrested for shoplifting at a Louis Vuitton store in China — but instead by a series of allegations about the Republican nominee in the special election in Alabama to replace Jeff Sessions in the Senate.

    David Alcon, who is running for an open congressional seat in New Mexico, was arrested this past Friday on a felony stalking charge after a woman accused him of sending her frightening and lewd text messages and showing up at her home. Alcon was previously convicted of stalking his ex-girlfriend in 2007 and was described as “infatuated” and “clearly obsessed” by the judge in the case. The corruption trial of Sen. Robert Menendez, D-NJ, has ended in a mistrial, and one is tempted to wonder if any of the jurors were swayed by the Menendez character witnesses such as...

    One thing we can all take comfort in is that their best days are behind them and the Fox/Newscorp brand is in the process of being utterly decimated. And the trajectory is downward, sharply so. Cord-cutting was already happening at an impressive pace before the NFL debacle - which FOX is heavily invested in Lots more cord-cutting, and lots of Murdoch properties losing money and influence badly. Almost nobody reading their periodicals. Their target audience has seemingly become solely well connected swamp-dwellers residing in the DC-NY corridor, the rest of you can go f--- yourselves. They want to be the...

    Alabama woman Beverly Young Nelson claimed Monday that Judge Roy Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a 16-year old waitress 40 years ago — telling her story at a New York City press conference held by high-profile liberal attorney Gloria Allred. Nelson, 56, sat next to Allred and stated that she came to know Roy Moore when she was 15 years old, working in a local restaurant near her high school. Moore was, according to her, a regular, eating in the same seat every night and often complimenting her on her looks. According to Nelson’s statement, one night, shortly...
