          The Cruz/Mike Lee/Mo Brooks cabal, long-time NeverTrumpers, are hoping for the same. Palin, a real sincere American Patriot, once again fooled by the “fighting rhetoric.” She backed McCain twice, Flake, Orrin Hatch, Rubio, Paul, and ToxicTed for Senate. She is a nice person, but these NeverTrump carpetbaggers cannot “Support Trump by Opposing Him.”

          Moore has said himself that he aligns most closely with Sen. Mike Lee. Recall, for a moment, the MORONIC STUPIDITY of the Cruz/Lee cabal at the RNC convention, using sleazy lawyer tricks to thwart The People’s Choice by far (over 1500) delegates. Recall also tat Cruz/Lee CHEATED big time in IOWA. Folks worried about SENATE LEADER supporting Trump;s man, ought to really worry about this group of LOSERS supporting TWICE-FIRED Moore.

            And Moore’s out-of-state support cabal are all LOSERS, i.e. they literally never win. Cruz (“El Chapo Wall Funding Bill”); Brooks (NEVER Trump bona fides); Senator Lee (making a FOOL of himself at the RNC convention trying to overthrow Trump). Wow, really inspires confidence in Moore.

          I hear you. I’m from TEXAS, but I DO feel a have a horse in this race, and here’s why:

          I am sure Judge Moore is a fine American, West Point, Viet Nam War, honorable command. Rand Paul and Mike Lee have taught me a lot about how Senators , even from other states can affect me personally. Folks are worried that The SENATE LEADER supports Trump’s Man, Senator “Big Luther” Strange. The cabal who say they support Moore should be the much bigger worry. Senator Strange should have been able to serve until November 2018. But the Cruz/Brooks NeverTrumpers worked tirelessly to oppose Trump by forcing this run-off.

          Moore himself says he aligns with Sen. Mike Lee. Recall Lee/Cruz caught cheating in IOWA primaries. Recall Cruz/Lee’s Nationally Televised FOOL-fest at the RNC Convention trying to use sleazy lawyer tricks to thwart The People’s choice. Trump had amassed over 1500 delegates by Convention time. Palin supports Moore. She is also a Patriotic American. Yet she endorsed McCain twice, Jeff Flake, Orrin Hatch, Rubio, Paul, and was the reason Texan’s are saddled with ToxicTed.

          So, although the two times Moore has been fired from his posts in Alabama may have been for inspirational causes, I say this. Remember how “inspirational” Cruz was to all when he called McConnell a LIAR on the Senate Floor? Yet, McConnell dumped hundreds of thousands of $$ into ToxicTed’s presidential campaign, remembering of course, how ToxicTed has ENDORSED Thad Cochran in 2014, not to mention handing out Soccer Balls and Teddy Bears to the new DACA arrivals, along with true psychopath, Glenn Beck. Remember?

          Now The Cruz/Lee/Brooks Never Trumps are like busy beavers “Supporting Trump by OPPOSING Trump” Judge Moore’s fighting spirit is fine, but irrelevant to MILLIONS of “forgotten” Americans who always get caught holding the bag when these “fighters” LOSE, as they so often do (See Rand Paul and his SAVING of ObamaCare; See ToxicTed’s support for TPP; See Mike Lee’s attempt to deny Trump’s trade authority with the Border Adjustment Tax).

          Trump has a track record. He has WON for us, he is WINNING. Senator Strange has a track record of actual VOTING, and very vocally Supporting TRUMP. TRUMP wants Senator Strange. Cruz/Lee/MoBrooks cabal wants Moore. The latter is becoming increasing strident with their “Principled Champion” and THAT we have seen before with OPPOSITION to purty much everything TRUMP.

          VOTING AGAINST Senator STRANGE MAKES NO LOGICAL sense.

    Please share widely, for the love of God, country and the good people of Alabama

    As a practicing lawyer since 1974, lay minister, Vietnam veteran, Roy Moore’s teacher at Alabama School of Law, and close observer of Justice Moore’s two tenures on the Alabama Supreme Court, I feel compelled to share some concerns.

    As a preface, I share Justice Moore’s devotion to the Ten Commandments and am thrilled for any public person to espouse the values we share. So are those who twice removed Justice Moore as Chief Justice: many are devout Christians.

    That said, when you vote Tuesday, you might consider the following:

    One: Roy Moore did not get along with his colleagues in law school or on the Supreme Court. The arguments were not over Christianity.

    In law school, the arguments arose from what Disraeli called “falling into a deep groove of illogic and being helpless to allow reason to pull you out.” If Moore’s analysis of a case was tantamount to thinking 1 + 1 = 3, and his classmates reasoned otherwise, there was no backing down by Moore. The class was willing to fight to the death against illogic that no legal mind but one in America would espouse.

    Moore never won one argument, and the debates got ugly and personal. The result: gone was the fulfillment a teacher hopes for in the still peace of logic and learning. I had no choice but to abandon the Socratic method of class participation in favor of the lecture mode because of one student: Roy Moore…

I had no choice but to abandon the Socratic method of class participation in favor of the lecture mode because of one student: Roy Moore.

          Two:As Chief Justice, Moore continued that trend. He violated years of precedent, established by Jefferson, who once wrote that he only hoped he could serve our country like Christ wanted him to. Yet, Jefferson fought to ingrain the principle of religious freedom in our Constitution, at a time of state-sponsored churches and religious persecution.If you were Baptist, your taxes supported other churches and you often were persecuted. If Moore’s actions were lawful, a chief justice could flaunt Islamic or Buddhist icons in schools and authorize probate judges to deny marriage licenses to scarf-less women, as contrary to Sharia law.
          His colleagues tried to reason with him, but he couldn’t get it: the world experience, backed by an ocean of blood soaking battlefields across our earth-and religious wars were not ancient events during Jefferson’s times-proves that the way to run a country is with tolerance. Do we need God in America? Absolutely. Let Moore devote his life to converting every American to Christianity-I’m for that-and that still does not eliminate the risk of persecution, unless all are members of the same church. Baptists could be persecuted, just like they were before our constitution. Christian men smarter than Moore, including titans such as Jefferson, Franklin, and Madison, would use a far sharper pen in dealing with Moore.

          Three:The conservative cause is seeing fragile times. I serve an organization dedicated to promoting free enterprise, and desperately want to see change, including, as one of many examples, elimination of regulations choking our nation’s spirit. To help this nation change, we will need senators who get along. Who can convince.
          This is not an endorsement of Strange or Jones. This is a wake-up call: the instant Moore wins the runoff is the instant his tarnished reputation as a twice-removed Chief Justice will scald the airwaves of CNN and MSNBC.
          The DNC will pour money into the campaign coffers of Doug Jones, smelling blood in solid Democratic support for Jones and from moderate Republicans.
          In Washington, Moore would be Senator Irrelevant, the poster child for stubborn resistance to common sense legislation such as repeal of ObamaCare and decrease in taxes, standing on some piece of sideways’ thinking nobody in or outside the Swamp would respect.
          A vote for Moore will be a vote for Doug Jones and against the conservative cause.

            It could also be a function of a Constitutional originalist thought. I don’t know Moore and I don’t live in Alabama, but I have a close friend, a rarely-found-today professor who taught the Constitution from original documents, who knows him personally and respects Moore’s Constitutional knowledge. Law schools don’t teach the Constitution anymore. If one does nowadays, it’s an anomaly and I’d have to see the curriculum to know whether they’re teaching the original intent or the contrived “living and breathing” version that’s given us judges that legislate from the bench. I wouldn’t hang my hat on Martin’s statements about Moore. If I were voting, I’d decide based on other tangible factors.

          We hear all the time about the wonderful economic development a stadium brings with it. Then why do the areas around these facilities become run down, rotting, crime-ridden dumps?

      I love the strategy. Even if Rand Paul does not budge, Trump saying this will at least benefit MAGA in other ways. Plus POTUS seems to hint at the idea of campaigning against those who try to thwart the Trump agenda which, IMO, will ultimately be POTUS’ path to MAGA victory.

      I took the hit for the team and read the CNN article.
      Imagine that – Podesta’s name keeps popping up.
      Snip
      “Investigators have spent years probing any possible role played by Manafort’s firm and other US consultants, including the Podesta Group and Mercury LLC, that worked with the former Ukraine regime. The basis for the case hinged on the failure by the US firms to register under the US Foreign Agents Registration Act, a law that the Justice Department only rarely uses to bring charges.
      All three firms earlier this year filed retroactive registrations with the Justice Department.”

        As I’ve said elsewhere, I’m not a big fan of this bill, but my research shows that pre-existing conditions are protected. The lib media are basing their pre-existing condition attacks on the basis that all the Obama care mandated coverage can be modified by the states.
        So your state could decide not to offer transgender re-assignment treatment, and if you were midway through a sex change, then yes your pre-existing coverage could go away.
        But I don’t think a single state will be changing coverage of what most people would consider to be true health care.

    AMEN to the AceofSpades and others who consistently questioned the intent and motivation of our AG.

    “It is Sessions’ duty to go after this criminality, which is unprecedented in American history and it is evident that he is neither capable nor willing to do so. And in abrogating that responsibility he is in effect aiding and abetting the breakdown of trust in our law enforcement and governmental agencies. This is a cancer on our nation and society and he is letting it consume us. For the good of the nation, Jeff Sessions must resign and make way for someone who will pick up the gauntlet and prosecute those who violated their sacred oaths to the nation an rule of law….”

          Which is partly why the whole Senate voting to stay “in session” when they were not in session in August was a really big deal: Not only did it prevent President Trump from getting people in office, but it was proof positive that the ENTIRE SENATE, Repubs included, was part of the Resistance. No matter what they do now this is unforgettable.
