    I wish someone could figure out/expose why the RINOs are REALLY afraid of Moore.

    I mean, so many legislators have gotten away with sex stuff no problem. So we KNOW it’s not about these accusations.

    What’s *really* going on here?

    Nearly the 300th day of Trump’s administration. The swamp is trying to block MAGA at every turn and “run out the clock” on our President. Everything he’s accomplished so far – which is considerable – he’s done almost totally on his own. The Republicans we voted for are not just useless, they are obstacles to MAGA.

    I wish Trump would form a new party, but I understand why he wouldn’t want to do it that way. As difficult as this hostile takeover is proving to be, starting a new third party and winning with it would be exponentially harder.

      Agreed. If they can’t remove him then they will work VERY hard to make sure the mid term is a defeat of MAGA candidates in the GOP primaries and, if necessary, a defeat of GOP candidates in the general election next fall. Then they will be the minority party again and President Trump’s Congressional agenda will officially be stalled without it being their fault.

      Look at how hard they are trying to loose AL senate seat since their candidate lost the primary! They have not only not rushed to his defense they have RUSHED to attack and defeat him. No one has urged due process, has urged to vote form him and then, if accusations are proven true promise he then will resign (after the seat is safely a GOP seat until the next election – remember this is a special election) and they will appoint another GOP to the seat for the remaining term.

      Nope! Instead, they rush to attack and urge his ouster, assuring a Dem victory v. holding a GOP seat. Evidence of a Uniparty in the heart of the GOPe/Dems.

      This is why EVERY one of us Must be involved in our city/county GOP parties. We MUST do our best to be involved in the primary process, in the vetting, meet and greats with candidates, etc. The primary is where the GOPe fight to install the RINOs. We MUST not wait until the general election and then have to vote RINO/Uniparty/GOPe or Dem.

      In toss up states the GOP will not win unless they give Conservatives and Independents something real to vote for, a real choice, not middle of the road nonsense! Support MAGA in toss up states and be a real fighter and the base will turn out and Independents will listen as they want common sense on foreign policy, border security and immigration issues too!

      Just as important as flipping seats in toss up states and in R states that currently have Dems in the Senate – we must have MAGA supporting R candidates in the conservative states! Not much good to flip seats to R or to send R’s to Congress from conservative states only for them to not help President Trump. That is why the primaries matter. In conservative states or Districts, if they win the primary the R candidate is almost certain it win the general. Primaries matter!!!!

      In TN, the primary for Senate matters! TN is conservative but look at the voting records of Lamar Alexander and Corker in the Senate much less their public behavior re our President Trump and the MAGA agenda! And Gov Hasslam bragging and promoting his choice to not vote for President Trump…!!! We can and must elect, during the primaries, candidates that will truly represent us and the MAGA agenda in DC and in Nashville.

      Watcher, that’s the best “idea” I’ve heard so far:

      That’s this is their way to attempt to scare off EVERY candidate they feel *may* be an “outsider” to their RINO interests.

      It does not make sense for this to be about Roy Moore ONLY. He’s just one guy and can be quickly voted out next time around if AL. sees fit.

      The pile on on one guy is just so extreme.

      Yeah, they may be trying to just “Nip it. Nip it in the bud”, by making an “example” of Moore.

      I think you are right – it sets all the wrong precedents that could be used against P45. We must believe the allegation. No need for investigations. The accused must prove innocence. Allegations are enough to disqualify someone from holding office. Trump knows the deal and can handle such claims. Roy Moore seems willing and able to fight back. What about others on the Hill? McConnell? Ryan?

      With Hollywood and DC, the sexual violence allegation dynamic has become a hungry beast. They are eating their own and it appears that only outsiders (ex. Trump and Moore) have much chance of surviving allegations. The public views those inside the beltway of Hollywood as wickedly corrupt and assumes their guilt.

        Something I think we need to be careful about and stay clear on is that the problem is not that the accusation is “40 yrs old”. Just the opposite – these are Brand NEW accusations!!! About things that occurred 40 yrs ago!

        And NO ONE had accused him in ANY other political races or during this entire campaign until now!

        The accusations are Not OLD – they are NEW. These NEW accusations are about events that supposedly occurred 40 yrs ago.

        People are not dismissing the events because they happened 40 yrs ago. If crimes occurred 40 yrs ago it would still be an issue. However, this constant referencing of the 40 yrs ago point is to reference that it is a supposed occurrence that is just now being revealed and from so long ago with no other supporting evidence or ever being mentioned before. The timing of these surfacing is very suspect.

        Big difference between dismissing the charges because they are 40 yrs old v. they are New charges/accusations but the events actually occurred 30-40 yrs ago. And a difference between this and Bill Clinton’s accusations. Many of his accusations occurred much closer to the time of the supposed events although now they occurred many years ago. This is not a statue of limitations issue per se. It is questionable timing and suspect silence by so many for so many years that he has been in political office and even the national limelight. If these things were actually true it seem that they would have surfaced before now.

        Anyway, I think this is an important distinction that we ought not let get blurred.

          […](11) “After the Army, Moore returned to Alabama to attend law school, and then accepted a job as deputy district attorney in Gadsden, the seat of Etowah County.” [This would be in 1977 so if there was any sexual dirt it would have come out then.]

          (12) “Moore believed that the sheriff’s department was underfunded, so he took it upon himself to bring the issue before a grand jury—an audacious move for one in so modest a position.”

          (13) “The infuriated presiding judge had Moore investigated by the state bar association for ‘suspect conduct.’ The case was dismissed.”

          (14) “Several weeks later he launched his first political campaign, running as a Democrat for circuit-court judge of Etowah County. He lost badly. After the election he was hit with a second complaint.”

          (15) “This, too, was eventually dismissed. But Moore, now jobless and widely reviled, was essentially run out of town.” […]

            He was accused … but accused of what? “Suspect conduct” … not specific and might be something completely unrelated to any women, much less these women.

            I don’t think that situation was about these accusations by these women as they have been talking about why they didn’t step forward sooner, blah blah blah. So these current accusations are New accusations of supposed misconduct from 40 yrs ago.

            By the way, I am not a Moore fan specifically but I am very concerned about tricks of the Uniparty of which the GOPe are a willing and active members. I am also concerned about keeping the Senate as much R as possible and know that the Uniparty is worried about a Moore victory and that the Dems and GOPe would love to see him defeated. Therefore, I want to see him win.

            Even with the RINOs in the Senate it is still better to have a GOP Senate that not. That is how I Know this is a Uniparty hit job, fully supported by the GOPe. If it wasn’t then the GOPe would distance themselves but still want a Moore win and then promise that he the evidence is against Moore, if his accusers are proven correct, then Moore will have to step down and another R will be appointed to the seat. But they would want Moore to be elected to be at least a placeholder to maintain that Senate seat as an R Senate seat.

            That is not happening and lets me know this is not just a Dem hit job – it is a Uniparty hit job. Vote R and then if Moore needs to resign based on evidence in the defamation trial then appoint another R.

  20. David Goldman wrote a great commentary on President Trump’s middle east policy for PJ Media today. Like Sundance, he gives Trump a lot of the credit for Saudi Arabia changing from supporting Sunni terrorists to opposing them. But he adds three details that Sundance hasn’t yet written about:

    1. He holds that Saudi Arabia would win a Saudi-Iran war because of the superiority of Saudi’s air force.

    2. He points out that Russia and China are very supportive of the new Saudi leadership because them, themselves, are threatened by Sunni terrorism.

    3. He gives a nice summary of the “encircle-and-strangle strategy” of “tying Israel’s hands” pursued by the Bush and Obama administrations, and says, “Trump will not tie Israel’s hands in the case of attack, and will not interfere with Israel’s ability to defend herself. That makes Israel’s deterrent against Iran credible.”

    I think Rush nailed it this afternoon on why the libs are now throwing Bill Clinton under the bus after all these years, It’s just a way to get rid of their hypocritical past defense of slick willy so they can move unto trying to take Trump down with all the fake accusations that were brought up right near the end of the campaign. The Clinton’s are of no use to them anymore, so just like good leftists will do, they’ll sacrifice their former hero’s in order to advance their cause.

    As for Judge Moore, it seems pretty simple to prove whether he’s lying or not about this latest accusation. If he actually did frequent that diner in question where this woman used to work as a teenager, then dozens of other people would have seen him there and could refute his statement that he doesn’t know anything about that place. Seems rather simple.

We also now have dozens of cases documenting hoaxes against Trump and Trump supporters (I have first hand experience).

        The accusations against Moore are obviously much much worse. Looks like Bannon tried to use Trump as a guide for dealing with them. Seemed to work well at first, but they aren’t aggressively fighting back like Trump did. Huge difference between the two. I don’t know what to make of it exactly.

    We know they all thought Hillary was going to win, so she actually thought Tim Kaine was going to be the Vice President. He’s completely incompetent and even they had to know it. He’s not a minority… there’s no way he had any future in the party. He brought nothing to the table except he could speak Spanish, but they were convinced Trump had alienated all the Hispanics anyways so they didn’t need that.

    So why did she pick HIM? I understand he was weak and she could do whatever, but any person she picked would be like that. there had to be some sort of plan to replace Kaine, or whatever with someone else for the future (to succeed Hillary).

    Hannity finally put his shovel away and stopped digging. Now he’s off the Moore thing and back on Clinton scandals.

        Yup, he did it again and attacked Moore. Hannity gives Moore 24 hours to prove his innocence. The yearbook is very questionable. Please note the discrepancies in the yearbook: 1) The 7’s on the “1977” are very different; note the curls on the 7’s with Moore’s signature. 2) The o’s in Roy’s name is written differently than the other o’s in the message. 3) It’s weird that it is dated twice. 4) Most of my high school yearbooks were signed in the spring, not in December. 5) Was Moore ever a DA? 6) “Old Hickory House” is printed much differently. Is this a message from the Swamp as a warning? Keep Praying folks!

    This makes me really angry. Why did this happen – why the holdovers?

    “While (ICE) officers view the President’s position on enforcement as courageous, the Trump administration has left all of the Obama managers and leadership in place, a group that ICE Officers know after the last eight years to be completely incompetent, corrupt and anti-enforcement,” Mr. Crane wrote.

    “While President Trump did create an uptick in morale at ICE through his support of enforcement operations, tensions are on the rise between Trump’s army of Obama holdovers and boots on the ground officers in the field, as behind the scenes Obama holdovers continue to undermine law enforcement operations and wage war against their own law enforcement officers.”

      very powerful union – the best thing that can happen here is for the laws to become consistently enforced, and then the holdovers can actually be removed for cause.

    A little side note on the whole yearbook/Roy Moore garbage: Has anyone noticed that the person who wrote this made sure that we knew that this was “written in 1977 and it was Christmas time?” In one message, the author writes Merry Christmas, Christmas 1977 and 12/22/77. Who does that?

    Rep Tim Ryan’s office (D) OH-13, called tonight and invited me to participate in Ryan’s tele-townhall.

    You should know, yours truly has been merciless on poor Tim Ryan for several years now.

    Anyway, Ryan only brought up social issues once, and, without saying so, is supporting most of our MAGA agenda. Mind you, Ryan gives Pres Trump no credit. But it is the MAGA agenda, for the most part, nevertheless.

    Ryan had very little criticism for Pres Trump, criticism which was mainly directed at Pres Trump’s tweets.
    Ryan has full confidence in SOS Tillerson and SecDef Mattis, and is confident those two are able to constrain Pres Trump.
    (pause here for laughter)
    Ryan’s vitriole was directed at the GOPe (which is fine by me).

    There was no talk of making gov smaller or draining The Swamp, but Ryan wants to move parts of gov agencies to the states, while pointedly saying that gov cannot provide jobs for all people. !!!

    Ryan has rebranded “Main Street” as “Walking Communities,” but it is still moving back to smaller, family-friendly communities centered around Main Street.

    There was much more, and there was much for which Ryan had no good answer. But we here have the answers, do we not? Asking for comments at the end, my comment was recorded.

    And tomorrow, Rep Tim Ryan will be listening to an Incorrigible Deplorable, talking MAGA in North Coast with a CTH accent.

    Lord willing, this time, Ryan will listen.

      I think intelligent people would think that Roy Moore and his backers are searching these women’s background, and life. He can’t make statements if he can’t back them up with PROOF. It takes time but I’m sure a bombshell is forthcoming.

    ON a different note:

    Friend of mine works as a pilot escort (not what I original thought that meant) — she travels across the US and pilot’s oversize loads — sometimes moving in speeds of under 10 mph for long distances — once awhile she will post pictures of the cooler loads she is doing — as this one!

    She has complained for years of the state of our infrastructural and posted some pretty scary pictures of our bridges and roadways — She was not a fan of President Trump until I sent her the plan for infrastructure and projects it plans on fixing — She sent it back to me and told me that she has personally experienced quite a few of those projects and that alone would make her support President Trump and vote for his re-election….

    She posted the above recently and thought it was a pretty great picture!

    Bummer. French Pres Macron is in a wee bit of trouble.

    President Macron snubbed by Saudi Arabia
    “The Elysée palace attempted to organise (sic) a stop-over by Emmanuel Macron in Riyadh to repatriate Saad Hariri. But King Salmane refused to receive the little Frenchman.”

    “The insult to Emmanuel Macron was so crude it is hard to fathom – the French President was not received by his counterpart, the King of Saudi Arabia, even though, over the last few days, King Salmane has been meeting with any number of second-rate personalities.”

    “(B)y not adapting immediately to the about-face by Saudi Arabia
    —->>> after Donald Trump’s anti-terrorist speech last May<<<—-,
    and by keeping two projects active at the same time, France has banned itself from the region. The Emirates… no longer take the French seriously."

    "The Saudis remember the way that candidate Macron spoke against them during his (Macron's) campaign, and also how he spoke in favour of Qatar, the current godfather of the Muslim Brotherhood."

    "France has become a stranger in the Middle East."

    follow-up on the “ridiculous” warrant for Rose McGowan – turns out she had two bags of coke in her wallet, which she left behind on the plane (found by airport workers).

    She’s not denying anything – but saying that if she had taken the million-dollar payoff offered by Weinstein, the charges would have ‘gone away’. Now she’ll be a shero (hero is too masculine, right?) for not buying her way out of trouble. sheesh
