  • Trump's Muslim Ban is Working. Muslim Immigration Slumps

    and Muslim admissions have increased on average 18 percent annually from 2007 to 2016.

    Well, what could possibly have happened during those years to cause such an increase in Moslem immigration? Some mysteries just can't be solved. '

    Well, certainly we have no reason to question Hillary’s judgment in separating documents related to personal matters from those related to her official duties. A woman of such proven integrity and professionalism should not be questioned.

    Has Stuart Smalley commented on this development yet? Unless I missed a recent, definite resignation, it sounds like the Minnesota governor might be trying to speed the non-specific resignation process along.

    I think we're done.

    Lol, you simply refuse to look at reality for what it is. There are conservative voters who will not vote for a candidate due to moral objections, even that helps a worse candidate win. Fact of political life.

    And if you think the state of Alabama is a problem in the battle against liberalism, then you are a complete ignoramus when it comes political history of the USA, and the present realities in the USA.

    You simply have a bogus point you're trying to make and you refuse to look at realities that most accept, even if they don't like them.

    Trump already proved that wrong.

    It is impossible to disprove it. If some conservative voters object to a candidate on some moral issue, they will not vote for that candidate. But the moral issue can be fluid and will be decided by each individual voter as they assess each individual candidate.

    Moore became objectionable to a significant number of conservative voters. Trump did not become objectionable to enough voters to lose his election.

    So, how long do we stay this stupid?

    As long as anyone currently alive is likely to live. Some conservative voters just believe some political questions are are such important moral questions that they cannot vote for any candidate who answers the questions incorrectly.

    And there is nothing anyone can do about it.

    And Doug Jones will be a lame duck senator the instant he's sworn in. If the Republicans field any sensible candidate in 2020, Jones will have no chance of being reelected.

    The biggest element in Moore’s loss hasn’t been mentioned in our exhange. It is a reality that there are a significant number of conservative voters who will not vote for a candidate because of some moral consideration, even if the opposing liberal candidate is overall far worse. And that is not just in Alabama, but everywhere conservative voters exist.

    Almost forty year-old allegations can’t be proved or disproved, but Moore never effectively refuted the allegations. The Hannity interview was a near disaster and he left little doubt that he did date girls in their late teens. It was a political hit job, but with the appearance of enough truth to cause some conservative voters, particularly women, to have enough doubt to keep them at home yesterday.

    And there was a high turnout of black voters. Alabama will vote 60% to 65% for any good conservative candidate in a general election. It’s unfortunate that Roy Moore ended up being the candidate this time.

    And if McConnell could have refrained from sticking his hose into Alabama politics, I don’t think Moore would have won the Republican primary.

    Alabama fell for a political hit, and elected a far left asshole who stands against everything, everything they stand for.

    Wrong. For years, Roy Moore has had just enough support among conservatives to win a primary for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and then win a general election against a Dim. But he had lost badly in two gubernatiorial races and squeaked by in the Republican primary, special election for senator.

    His support has been thin for years in statewide elections and many conservatives do not like Moore, and that was the case well before the sexual misconduct allegations arose.

    I voted for him yesterday only to try and keep a Dim from winning the seat, but that is the only reason I voted for him. There were many who voted for Moore for similar reasons, but not enough. Moore was, and always has been a very flawed politican and it's unfortunate that a confluence of odd events allowed him to become the Republican candidate for senator.

    Moore's own flaws and Mitch McConnel are the reason for Moore's loss.

  • How to Deal With Bullies

    I wonder if bullying has become much more common in recent decades. When I was in HS In the late ‘60s, the term “bullying” was not even in our vocabularies. We used the term “picking on” to describe what was mostly verbal harassment and very minor, if any physical contact. And there was very little of that.

    My reaction to the Hannity interview was why in the heck were they doing this so soon? Sean was doing some virtue signalling and neither he nor Moore had thought the situation through very well. Didn’t watch because I sensed it would not help the cause of keeping the seat out of Dim hands. It didn’t.

    Mother Russia may become the last bastion of Europeans and those around the world who are of European descent.

    Yep, I've been thinking the same for a few years. If Putin would stop his dalliances with Iran and China, stop making mischief in the world, and then institute individual freedom and the rule of law, Russia would probably start attracting many immigrants of European descent as soon as it appeared such changes had been made.

    He could solve Russia's demographic problem through immigration of people of European descent from Western nations.

    If nothing happens, worse is still to come. The African population is bound to quadruple from its present one billion to four billion by the end of the century. One-third of the Africans want to move abroad. Many want to come to Europe. Over half of the African population is Islamic and they are the fastest growing group.

    It's only just begun. If the Western nations don't acquire a strong sense of self-presevation there will be no affluent, white majority nations left on earth as those are the ones the Third Worlders wish to move to.

    An irony may prove to be that the West's stupid immigration policies will drive the east European nations back toward Mother Russia, who's shown no tendency to allow its destruction through insane immigration policies.

    Whatever, the most important thing is to avoid any backlash against Moslems. I’m sure Moslem leaders around the US are already issuing their warnings against Islamophobia.

    “those who support him, we might need to question whether or not they’re decent.”

    Lol, these Ivy League genuises just can't figure it out. And I might question whether or not this character is a complete ignoramus. Roy Moore has some loyal support in Alabama, but most who vote for him will be voting to keep a Dim from occupying the senate seat. It's not much more complicated than that,. no matter how much time Ivy League know-it-alls spend overanalyzing a pretty simply situation.

    I’d been wondering when some Dim would start claiming credit for the booming economy, that those Obama economic policies are finally really kicking in. Turns out it’s Obama himself stepping up to make a complete fool of himself before any who have a modest understanding of the US economy.

    I guess most Alabamians are able to think at least one step further than this guilt-ridden, self-loathing son of the South. His sort are always apologizing and engaging in endless moral preening while doing penance for the land of their birth.

    But what many Alabamians who plan to vote for Roy Moore know is that the #1 priority, by a huge margin, is to prevent the senate seat from falling into Dim hands. So, they’ll vote for Moore and hope it works out well, but if it doesn’t, they also know Alabama’s Republican governor would appoint another temporary senator and schedule another special election.

    The moral stand to be taken Tuesday is to keep that far left extremist Doug Jones out of the US Senate.

    The Dims know that Jones’ only chance is an unusually high turnout of black voters in what will still be an overall, low turnout special election. The obvious racial play might provide as much or more additional motivation to white voters as to black.
