    What do we believe PTrump would want as far as healthcare? I believe he would want a full repeal so he is not tied to OCare. Would a full repeal be so bad…..only problem is PTrump needs the votes so I believe he will support people who will be on his side to do that.

      We all know that Strange has been loyal to PTrump now….but how will he be once he is a senator and beholden to the swamp and lie like the rest of them?? ….Can PTrump trust Strange to support his agenda after? Tough call….not sure where to go on this one.

          Yeah, it was, but that doesn’t mean he had to vote with Mitch. I gave my senator’s office some crap because my Repub senator voted to stay in ‘fake’ sessions.

          And when a senator votes for Trump’s agenda, sometimes they are being ‘covered’ by other senators who will stop the legislation and still looks like your guy is supporting Trump.

          I don’t know where Luther falls, but I am highly suspicious of my Repub, COC backed senator.

              Exactly…this is how they will obstruct anything important to Trump…up until this friday, legislation can pass with straight majority under reconcilliation, so at least 3 Rinos will fail to commit to anything….come Monday 60 votes are needed, then you will see the real games begin as all 52 RINOS unify around Trump knowing they dont have the votes to pass anything…if legislation is amended to get Dems on board, then for every vote over 60, one RINO will back out, citing their principles…it will be the RINO senators just elected who line up first as they are safe until 2022.

        I agree with winky. Glad Alabamans have to make this decision and not I. McCain and Murkowsky BOTH campaigned on repealing ObamaCare but once they were safely elected for another six years flipped the bird to the voters who sent them to DC. Alaska and AZ should recall them both! Is Strange another McCain/Murkowski? No way to know.
        Frankly, though, I believe POTUS should have stayed out of it and let Alabama decide. He can expect no loyalty from any politician backed by any member of the swamp. We do not have a Republican Party. We do not have a Democrat Party. We have a Global Uniparty. One wears a flag pin — that’s the only way to tell one from the other (except for a few like David Bratt).

That’s why a Trump supporter voting for Moore is a sign of delusion and brainwashing. If Moore is the candidate that goes into the general then the best thing that could happen is for the Democrat to win. If I lived in Alabama that’s how I’d vote.

    Imo the “reisist” movement is anarchy designed to allow Madame Clinton to rule (though she is stupid and does not realize that she is a puppet of her partners in crime) since she could not succeed in stealiing the presidency. Bottom line, she is still trying.

    It is racism and hatred justified by the lie that President Trump and his supporters are racist. Like everything else the Cliniton/Obama/Soros/Muslim Brotherhood is involved in, they lie to empower a goal to achieve world domination.

    Everything that works to weaken the President in his efforts to return us to our JudeoChristian consitutional rights and strengthen our freedoms under this righeous legal document is helping the other side.

    I beseach all “purists” to first seek out the beams in their own eyes and then seek to remove the splinters in others.

    People,
    It occurs to me that this election in Alabama has done more to further the lefts wish of dividing the President’s supporters than anything else they have tried so far – and they have tried a lot. I, personally, think it is odd that Steve Bannon has created more division than the left has been able to.

    I know there are some that are just here to agitate, but many on each side of this issue are people I have come to know and respect. I know they truly want what is good and right for our country. I cherish them as friends and thank everyone here for the opportunity to have expressed my opinion. Whichever way it works out, we’ll all have to hold our breath and hope for the best.

    Through CTH I’ve come to greatly respect the State of Alabama and Alabamans. I’ve even suggested moving there to several people that were looking for a good state to move to. So today, I pray for all of you in Alabama. Let this election not divide us, and let us support the voters of that great state in whatever they decide.

    The BannonBots are really out in force here today. This will be their first test to see if they can beat the President at his own game. Moore could pull a gun out at a campaign rally and wave it about for all to see, and the legions behind him would still support him. (Remember when Trump said someone thing about shooting someone on Fifth Avenue?)

    The thing I like about elections is they have a conclusion. By 8 or 9 o’clock tonight we will know which team prevailed. There will still be a general election in December against the Democrat, but at least tonight we will celebrate a victory or commiserate over a loss. Heck, even the Crimson Tide loses one every once in a blue moon. 🙂

    Good Bless the Great State of Texas! They are MAGA on steroids!

    The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided to slap the Lower Court’s decision on SB4 in the face yesterday! What makes the 3-0 decision worse is that 2 of the Judges were Democrat appointments. For those illegals that were convinced to stay because the Courts would protect them, they have had their world turned upside down in the past 24hrs. I predicted in the summer that you would see a mass exodus of illegals from TX to a state like California. I think that exodus continues today in overdrive and will play itself out over the next few months. Many will also decide to self deport because our President, DOJ, Homeland Security, ICE etc. are taking them out in record numbers.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/sep/25/court-revives-texas-anti-sanctuary-city-law/

    From the article linked above:

    A federal appeals court revived Texas’ law against sanctuary cities on Monday, allowing key parts to take effect — including requiring localities to hold on to illegal immigrants for pickup by deportation officers.

    While saying Texas’ law, known as SB4, was inartfully drawn, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that with some quick changes — which the judges ordered — the law can be cleaned up enough for most of it to take effect.

    The 3-0 decision appears to mark the first time a high-level federal appeals court has said states can demand that their localities comply with detainer requests, which are the crux of the sanctuary city issue.

    The ruling by the judges — two Democratic appointees and one Republican appointee — is just an interim victory, staying parts of an injunction issued by a lower district court. The 5th Circuit will hear full arguments on the merits of SB4 later this year.

    Still, it marks a rare time that Democrat-appointed judges have approved stiffer immigration policy during Mr. Trump’s tenure.

    It is also an initial victory for the Trump Justice Department, which backed Texas in court.

    The key part of the ruling prevents localities from blocking their officers and deputies from cooperating with federal immigration authorities who ask for information or help.

    More critically for enforcement, localities must comply with “detainer” requests to notify federal officers when a target is being released and to hold them for up to 48 hours beyond the time they would otherwise be set free based on the state or local charges.

    Still, the ruling is a major operational victory for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the federal deportation agency.

    I don’t have a dog in the hunt in Alabama. Not my state, so I say let people who live there decide.

    What I can do to support the President this week is to back him up on the NFL stuff.

    Here is what I sent to Mars, Inc. and I will be working my way through the sponsors whose products I buy:

    Message:
    Snickers and Peanut M&Ms are my favorite candies–for my whole life. Since you sponsor the NFL, I deduce that you also support the NFL allowing athletes to kneel for the National Anthem and to show their disdain for America, the military and the good citizens. At the same time, the NFL forbids its athletes to show support for slain cops, so I assume that you are OK with that, too. I stopped watching the NFL years ago, so the only action I can take is to express my displeasure with your continued support of the NFL’s position. I’ll get used to living without your candy.

    I put the following on the Dallas Cowboys “Contact Us” page this morning:

    To Jerry Jones: Way to go in showing bravery and courage by straddling the fence. Apparently your strategy is to kneel to show solidarity before the Anthem, and then stand and lock arms during the Anthem (but no hand over the heart or any other show of respect). By the way, why do you say you’re kneeling in unity? Unity for what? I seem to recall that this whole kneeling thing started as a protest of Law Enforcement. You should have the courage of your so called convictions and state that unequivocally. Be bold and state that you are kneeling in unity with your players to protest overwhelming prejudice and hatred within the Law Enforcement community. I bet you never have the courage to do that. I hope “Jerry World” is emptied of fans and that you play to empty stadiums. You’re no longer “America’s Team” – you’re a bunch of overpaid entertainers who are no longer entertaining. Hopefully others like me will opt out and see to it that you’re no longer overpaid.

    NFL/Protest/Something doesn’t ADD up

    Starting to see the cracks in what happened Sunday….

    1. Villanueva only player for the Steeler comes out for national anthem, after nation is hugely supportive and gains national attention — comes out and makes statement apologizing after being called out by coach and teammates.

    2 Roethlisberger Monday he “was unable to sleep last night” and wanted to share his “thoughts and feelings on our team’s decision to remain in the tunnel for the national anthem yesterday.” In a lengthy statement posted to his personal website, he said, “The idea was to be unified as a team when so much attention is paid to things dividing our country, but I wish we approached it differently. We did not want to appear divided on the sideline with some standing and some kneeling or sitting.

    3. Country singer defends Husband, Eric Decker, claiming NFL palyer didn’t necessary want to be part of Tennessee Titans absence during National Anthem. Story below!

    Jessie James Decker stands with national anthem in NFL kneeling controversy
    http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2017/09/25/jessie-james-decker-stands-with-national-anthem-in-nfl-kneeling-controversy.html

    Jessie James Decker is coming to husband Eric Decker‘s defense, claiming the NFL player didn’t necessarily want to be part of the Tennessee Titans absence during the national anthem ahead of their game on Sunday.

    In a statement, the Titans announced they would remain inside locker room during the playing of the “Star-Spangled Banner” before their game against the Seattle Seahawks.
    “As a team, we wanted to be unified in our actions today. The players jointly decided this was the best course of action,” the statement said. “Our commitment to the military and our community is resolute and the absence of our team for the national anthem shouldn’t be misconstrued as unpatriotic.”

    However, Jessie said her husband, a wide receiver for the Titans, was unaware of the protest.

    “Sadly he wasn’t made aware that a decision had made for him until he came out and it was over,” the 29-year-old country singer said in response to an Instagram follower’s comment.
    In response to another fan, she wrote, “If he had known he would have been out there hand over heart. Unfortunately, he wasn’t made aware it was time to head to the field as they always do every game.”

      Our purpose in becoming a NFL sponsor was to honor and appreciate the military community and that will continue to be our focus as we have no plans to end our role as the Official Military Appreciation Sponsor of the NFL.

        If Americans decide to be absent while the national anthem plays, then they should not be surprised one day when they are forced to be present while the anthem of another country plays in its place.

        When we think “it can’t happen here”, we have reached a danger point in complacency.
        It is easy to take our freedoms for granted. It is not so easy to regain them once they have been lost.

        Standing up for our national anthem today is far preferable than kneeling before a future dictator.

      Waters, your logic is complicated. “More[sic] winning vs Strange is more important than More[sic] losing to the dem!”

      Losing a safe R seat to a D is an untenable choice. I, for one, don’t buy into this “Alabama will never vote for a Dem to go to the Senate.” They did for nearly 100 years. Venerable former Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court Howell Heflin was a very effective U.S. Senator (1979-1997) and he was a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat. And current Senator Richard Shelby ran as DEMOCRAT in 1986 against INCUMBENT REPUBLICAN Senator Jeremiah Denton, who was a distinguished Navy Rear Admiral who spent 8 years as a prisoner in Vietnam. Shelby switched to the Republican party in 1994.

      Go ahead and vote for Moore. The Dems are licking their chops and will be grabbing their checkbooks. It would produce the most expensive Senate campaign in U.S. history. And where will all that money get spent? You guessed it: media and political consultants. Bannon and Company will move to Alabama for two months just to get in on the action. Gee, I wonder why they are pushing for Moore so hard?

    If Trump wants anything done, he will have to appease the Dems, which will trigger no votes from the RINOS while they search for the nearest tv crew to call Trump sellout to the DEMS. Its actually very predictable, and equally disturbing.

    Personally I hope Moore wins. I think everyone knows he will win by now. It will be seen with in the GOP establishment circles that McConnell and his COC money are worthless. Trump is supporting Luther because Luther has been loyal so far. Trump is a counter puncher and Luther has given Trump no reason to counter punch yet. Trump is signaling to other GOP senators, you be loyal (remember what he said to Comey?) and I will back you. So this is a perfect chance to show that he will back you if you support him even if that upsets some of the people who helped get him elected. A side bonus is that Mitch McConnell and the COC’s candidate will loose and Trump will say “it wasn’t my fault”.

    • Look, I understand the whole boycott idea and for those that want to do that I am glad that is working for you, but if I boycott all of the products of all of the companies that sponsor the NBA and the NFL, there wont be much left that I can buy, and I just don’t have that much free time in my life to go around researching whether or not every damn thing I buy is boycott safe or not.

      My not boycotting does not make me any less MAGA, any less of a Trump loyalist, any less patriotic, or anything else. It just means sometimes I gotta do what I gotta do. I don’t always get to do what I want to do.

        #1. You take the time over then next several weeks to call as many on the list below as you can and tell them you are boycotting.

        #2. You then boycott what you can. Coke, Pepsi, gatorade, Cambell’s full of salt soups, McDonald’s, Papa John’s Pizza, Frit- Lay and Mars snacks and candies.

        You do not need all that junk food anyway and they are all very well know brands. You can add Gillette (aka Procter & Gamble) and Old Spice if you can.

        The idea is to HURT them and if they see a drop in their top name brands they will get the message. You do not have to research every single item you buy. No one else will bother.

        For example Coke means CocaCola very few are going to know ” Dr Pepper is owned by the Dr Pepper Snapple Group, which also owns 7 Up and Snapple. In international markets, Coca-Cola owns most of the rights to Dr. Pepper.”

    It is pretty obvious why nothing gets done in congress — another Martin Luther King wannabe, race card carrying, Congressional Black Caucus member wastes time on the floor today — announcing he will move to force a House floor vote to impeach President Trump next week as he denounced Trump’s attacks on NFL players protesting police brutality.

    Knowing full well, that the President did not commit a crime, especially one that constitute an impeachment.

    Ben Garrison Take, long but worth it

    The Left has hated the NFL for a long time.

    To them, football is a sport that encourages ‘toxic masculinity,’ which goes against the grain of political correctness. Injuries that were once part of the game were dramatized with increasing alarm—particularly concussions. That brought about efforts to make the game ‘safe.’ Rules were piled upon rules and the fun of the game was sapped. The games grew longer and more tedious. All scoring plays are now examined, thus enabling sponsors to pack in more commercials.

    Next the players were feminized. That is, they’re now forced to wear pink during “breast cancer awareness month.” Even the refs throw pink flags. Truth is, they don’t want to cure cancer because it’s big business for the big pharmaceutical companies. The pink is there to make the game look ridiculous.

    Too many Super Bowl halftime shows are now not suitable for children. They often feature Illuminati symbols, sexual imagery and violent images.

    Extravagantly expensive stadiums are built at taxpayer expense. They are named after globalist companies. Children are taught about bathroom choices, because the new stadiums come with transgender-friendly options. Many fans then got priced out of the very stadiums they helped fund. The average family can’t afford the ridiculously high prices for tickets, concessions and souvenirs. Not to mention parking.

    The hard working middle class (what’s left of them) can’t identify with the spoiled, multi-million dollar NFL players. To be sure, some of those players do charitable work, but too many of them are also arrested for DUIs, domestic abuse, general thuggery or even murder. Nobody wants to watch self-centered, show boating jerks who make more money in a few minutes of play than many viewers can make in a year.

    If all of that weren’t enough, the sport has now become politicized…

    Here in San Francisco, some group of knuckleheads have spent, I hear, $15,000 to have a billboard at the Bay Bridge that says Impeach Trump. As you can imagine, the harpies are excited, and impeachment talk is filling the office once again.

    This morning, one of the harpies was explaining how impeachment works to a younger employee: “He can only be impeached by the senate but since it’s Republican that isn’t going to happen unless we put the pressure on. He also has to do something really outrageous.”

    “Like tweet about football?” said the younger employee.

    “That’s a good start,” said the other. “He has no business talking about football, he can’t even keep from going bankrupt.”

    A word of caution – do not fall for the “race” rhetoric currently bubbling over the NFL protests. This is EXACTLY what they want. They want us mad at “the other race” to further a race war leading to a full blown civil war. They are achieving their goal.

    The NFL issue is but a mere piece of the war currently being waged in this country. It will all come to a head on November 4th when Anti-fa starts their nationwide campaign (unless someone in authority FINALLY does something!).

    Obama was a foot soldier and helped escalate tensions with his commentary about cops shooting black thugs etc etc. Womens March/Resist is led by a Palestinian sympathizing, anti-semite woman. BLM is entirely a creation of the COMMUNISTS in the Democrat party. SEIU is a COMMUNIST organization. Anti-Fa is an INTERNATIONAL COMMUNIST organization. They have been working in this Country since the late 50’s to overthrow America (one of the original groups that supported D’s was started by a KGB Agent! It went largely unnoticed because not much attention was given. Now, that group is resurgent and many Dems are funded/supported by that group as well as Workers Party). Let’s not forget CAIR either. Soros is heavily funding the anti-America groups, but so are others. I fully expect Obama to resurface as a “hero”.

    You can research all of it yourself because the truth is out there.

    Stranahan is late to the party, by the way. (Sorry, just had to say that because he is always late to the party and tends to go off on tangents before he arrives to a conclusion 😉 ).

    The truth has been revealed many times over the years, but nobody seems to pay attention and I blame the media. They report on incidents, but NEVER delve into the why, who, where anymore. If they did some basic research before they “report” they would tell you what is going on and it would be stamped out. But, the MSM has been co-opted into the Democrat/Communist party.

    Start here: discoverthenetworks.org look for the organizations you see on the protest signs and follow the path to the real group. Go to http://www.trevorloudon.com/ Trevor has done an amazing job of researching and compiling a ton of information. Watch his documentary “The Enemies Within” on Netflix. Also, his new documentary about Anti-fa. But watch Enemies Within first!

    In conclusion, going back to my first paragraph. DO NOT FALL FOR THE RACIAL RHETORIC. You are only fodder for the war if you do. Be smart, spread the truth and don’t fall for the lies.

    Let us hope that Jeff Sessions and Christopher Wray are working on this problem….

      […]”These twelve private credit monopolies were deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this Country by the bankers who came here from Europe and repaid us our hospitality by undermining our American institutions. Those bankers took money out of this Country to finance Japan in a war against Russia. They created a reign of terror in Russia with our money in order to help that war along. They instigated the separate peace between Germany and Russia, and thus drove a wedge between the allies in World War. They financed Trotsky’s passage from New York to Russia so that he might assist in the destruction of the Russian Empire. They fomented and instigated the Russian Revolution, and placed a large fund of American dollars at Trotsky’s disposal in one of their branch banks in Sweden so that through him Russian homes might be thoroughly broken up and Russian children flung far and wide from their natural protectors. They have since begun breaking up of American homes and the dispersal of American children.[…]

    4 NCAA Basketball Coaches Charged With Taking Bribes

    Three criminal complaints filed in Manhattan detail a web of corruption in which money allegedly flowed between athletes’ families, coaches, and others with a financial interest in basketball — with the goal of locking in where young athletes would play, who would represent them and what clothing they would wear.

    “If we take care of everybody and everything is done, we control everything,” Christian Dawkins, a sports agency recruiter, told one of the undercover agents, according to a complaint. “You can make millions off one kid.”

    The four assistant coaches accused of taking bribes of between $13,000 and $100,000 to convince players to hire Dawkins and other advisers were identified as Chuck Person of Auburn University, Lamont Evans of Oklahoma State University, Emanuel Richardson or Arizona University, and Anthony Bland of the University of Southern California.

        Quite the opposite, at least at top-tier schools. 100k+ seat stadiums are becoming the norm, and multi-million dollar expansions with sky boxes, along the NFL model, paid for by boosters, media earnings, receipts and student fees. Unlike the NFL, there’s no sharing, or bonds, to balance the quality of the product across conferences.

        What ESPN pays is a boatload, over a decade agreement, or more, which I detest, because of the influence. In response, conferences have their own networks now, cutting them out.
