  • Poll: Roy Moore Leads GOP Field for Alabama Senate

    04/16/2019 8:11:21 AM PDT · by TroutGuy · 106 replies
    Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore leads the field of potential Republicans vying for the chance to challenge Sen. Doug Jones (D), a year and a half after Moore lost what was supposed to be an easy election in a deep-red state. A new poll shows Moore leading a still-evolving field of Alabama Republicans competing for the nomination. He is the top choice of 27 percent of Alabama Republican voters, according to the Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy Inc. survey. The state’s three Republican members of Congress finish well behind Moore: Rep. Mo Brooks would take 18 percent, Rep....

    Republican Roy Moore, who lost a recent Alabama senate election to his Democrat rival Doug Jones, has filed a lawsuit in an attempt to challenge the result. The lawsuit was filed the day before officials were due to certify Mr. Jones the winner-two weeks after the vote.... Mr. Moore's lawyer said the purposed of the complaint was to "preserve evidence of potential election fraud and to postpone the certification of Alabama's Special Election by Secretary of State John Merrill until a thorough investigation of potential election fraud, that improperly altered the outcome of this election." Mr. Merrill told the Associated...

    GOP Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore refused to concede on Tuesday night and insisted more votes could still swing the race and save him from a stunning defeat to an underdog Democrat. “When the vote is this close, that it’s not over,” he told supporters in Montgomery at his campaign rally shortly after Democrat Doug Jones already had been declared the winner by multiple news organizations and had given a televised victory speech. With all precincts reporting, Jones had 49.9 percent and Moore 48.4 percent. Moore quoted from scripture and told supporters to wait for all votes to come in...

    Donald Trump requires an opposition to keep him in check, but also gives them plenty of ammunition to work with. So how did they still manage to blow it?The beginning of this year presented Democrats and their sympathizers in the media with both an important job and a big opportunity. Donald Trump governs in a style that somehow manages to combine authoritarian bluster with a total lack of self-discipline. He requires an effective political opposition to keep him in check, which also gives the opposition plenty of ammunition to work with.So how is that the Left spent most of 2017...

    Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill announced Wednesday that a total of 366 military ballots were returned from overseas and 4,967 provisional ballots were cast. That is short of the 20,000-vote deficit that Moore needs to close.

    Senator-elect Doug Jones is already breaking with some prominent Democrats by refusing to call for President Trump to step down over ongoing sexual harassment allegations. “I don’t think that the president ought to resign at this point,” Jones (D-Ala.) told CNN’s “State of the Union.” In his first round of Sunday show interviews since securing a stunning victory in red state Alabama over accused sexual predator Roy Moore, Jones said he doesn’t want to get bogged down in Trump’s sexual harassment allegations and would rather work on “real issues.” “I think we need to move on and not get distracted...

    Stephen K. Bannon and his alt-right movement have helped accomplish something no one in a quarter-century has been able to do: get a Democrat elected in the state of Alabama. Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won reelection by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three...

    The Democrats are feeling ruff, tuff and ready for the coming battle, and why shouldn’t they? They proved in Alabama that with a little help from the other side, a Democrat can still defeat a child molester. All they need now, going into the midterm congressional elections, are more child molesters. “The victory Tuesday by the Democrat Doug Jones to represent that heavily conservative state [of Alabama] in the Senate,” The Washington Post breathlessly assures its constituency, “was the latest example in a string of elections this year that Democratic leaders think represent a growing backlash against Donald Trump —...

    Years ago, my brother David gave me a nugget of wisdom. He advised, "When faced with a crisis, stabilize your emotions before responding/acting." Thus, I thought it best to wait a day or so before sharing my thoughts about Roy Moore losing in Alabama. Moore's loss simply does not make sense. Alabama is a red state. It is hard to believe Alabama voters chose Jones, who supports killing babies even at the point of birth, over 38-year-old unproven sexual misconduct allegations against Moore. Yes, I smell the foul stench of Democrat voter fraud in the Alabama senate race. We've heard...

  • The Upside to Moore Loss for Trump and Republicans

    12/13/2017 10:32:59 AM PST · by Liberty7732 · 59 replies
    There is plenty of Republican hand-wringing and media gloating this morning over the dramatic loss of a Republican-held U.S. Senate seat in the deepest red Alabama yesterday — the first time since a conservative Democrat won in 24 years. It is mostly much ado about nothing. It had nothing to do with the very liberal Democrat running, Doug Jones, who was originally just a “D” set up as a lamb to the slaughter in a state Republicans typically win by 25 to 30 points. Trump won Alabama by 28 points. It had everything to do with Republican Roy Moore being...

    So Roy Moore lost. I can deal with it. But the take away lesson is that Trump’s political instincts are better than Steve Bannon’s. Remember, Trump supported Moore’s Republican opponent Luther Strange. Yes, he may have been an “establishment” Republican but I’ll bet he a) would have won and b) voted with the Trump agenda most if not all of the time.So thanks, Steve Bannon, for helping us get Trump elected but maybe it’s time you give him a chance to drain the swamp his way. He’s already pulled the plug, but it’s going to take awhile to get rid...

    Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share to Google+ Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Wednesday that Doug Jones’s Senate win in Alabama is “good day for America” because it was a blow to Steve Bannon. Bannon, a former White House chief strategist, campaigned for Jones’s GOP challenger, Roy Moore, who lost the race for the vacant Senate seat after weeks of mounting accusations that he sexually molested teenage girls. “That was a good day for America yesterday in the sense that Bannon lost,” Scaramucci told Bloomberg News. “I don’t think it was a great day for the...

    Shawn Hannity did a number on Judge Roy Moore Senatorial campaign. Candidate Roy Moore allowed himself to be bushwhacked in a telephone interrogation on national television. Hannnity acted as a prosecutor during the interview. How many Democrats when faced with a sexual scandal, encountered a prosecutorial styled interview? I cannot think of any. Do you remember Steve Kroft's interview of the Clinton's, which was later called the "Stand by Your Man" interview because of Hillary's defense of Bill Clinton? They were all soft ball questions with no follow up. I wanted to smash my television! I wanted to smash my...

But the tone of his words didn't capture the rage that filled the White House residence, according to two sources with knowledge of the president's mood.
