Roy Moore declines to debate Dem opponent
The Hill [DC], by Julia Manchester

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/10/2017 4:22:03 AM

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) has turned down an opportunity to debate his opponent, Doug Jones (D), because the differences between the two candidates are "crystal clear," according to Moore´s campaign. "While we appreciate the invitation from WHNT, the differences between the two candidates are crystal clear," Moore´s campaign chairman, Bill Armistead, said in a statement to WHNT-TV in northern Alabama. The CBS affiliate said on Wednesday that Moore´s campaign had declined to debate Jones, adding that the station would have allowed both campaigns to agree on a preferred format and offered six potential dates between Nov. 27 and Dec. 7. "We

This Roy Moore is carrying too much baggage. Time to go I think he is insane. I also think if these allegations against him on these sexual activities are true he is cooked. I wouldn´t put this scandal was cooked up by Mitch McConnell who hates this man. And I´m sure Mitch finds Moore not worthy to join his elitist Senate Club.

A true dilemma this is.
The Left is not above creating scandal from whole cloth yet if true then Moore must demure.
The very late nature of the charge is suspicious. The Left has all but eliminated the future of non-violent political civility.
When the balance of the Senate is at stake the Left has a long and nasty record of trumped up scandal and trickery. It´s not helpful that sexual abuse is the ´crime du jur´.

Seems that if these allegations are true, Turtle Mitch McConnell and his swamp minions would have played this smear card during the primary. Probably Turtle Neck McConnell never thought Moore would win the primary.

McConnell and the communist party democrats, who are his natural allies in the swamp sharing the same common goal, cooked this one up out of desperation. Certainly reveals that McConnell, McCain, Flake, and the rest of the republicans are absolutely no different that the communist democrat party which is the sworn enemy of we the people. Look how they are trying to force Moore out without a single shred of evidence beyond what is being alleged about acts many, many years ago.

Remember what they did to Herman Cain and as soon as he dropped out nothing was ever heard from his accusers. This reeks of the same despicable tactics.

This looks like a smear job.

McConnell has to go.

I think that anyone who gives these allegations any credibility is an idiot. The left has proven itself over and over to lie. Even the folks saying "if these things are true......" are being used as useful idiots. At this point we need to stick behind this guy because if we go the "old route" of demanding perfection, we fall into the worn out trap of the left.

Moore might be OK. I just heard his 3 accusers are backing off some of their claims and none have said he sexually assaulted them. No to defend this kind of activity but older men and young girls were common in the south back then. I´m sure you all heard of Jerry Lee Lewis,an early pioneer in the rock and roll era.IIRC,he married his underage cousin an dit didn´t hurt his career one bit.Goodness gracious,great balls of fire.

The log end of this you´re going to see i to get harder and harder to get someone to run for public office. Liberal women may benefit in the age of a male white privilege backlash.I mean a black woman from Somalia was just elected mayor in a town in Montana.

BTW, the accusations against Moore would mean nothing to the Dems. Look at Weiner. Menendez. Clinton. These accusations are intended to hit Moore’s conservative base, the Christian right. When it comes to moral issues, just a whiff sends them running. Never mind proof.

The defense of others do it too and they are worse is no defense at all. Judge Moore either did this or he did not. He is furiously denying the charge. That gal better have some proof. But will the hint of scandal be enough to lose that seat in Alabama? The polls are close.

The Post was advertising for stories. The reporter has an irresponsible background. The accuser has a very shady background. The Dems obviously knew the WaPo story was coming and timed their demand for a debate so that Moore would look like he was ducking the charges. This is all very coordinated. The Dem has probably done much worse stuff, but we are are not trying to peep in his window or do a body cavity search.

It is of no use to point out the hypocrisy of the left. What is worth noting is the response of the GOP members that were quick to jump on the bandwagon. Of course, it´s a disgusting story! But.. I don´t for one minute think that this would have been used against him before now as controversial as he has been over the years. I mean come on!

To wait until it is too late to get another candidate on the ballot proves the set up to me.. If we lose the senate because of this, or lose any votes, its beyond dirty tricks. Maybe Sessions should set down and reclaim his Senate seat? Can he do that?

I had a thought. Didn´t Prince Charles marry Princess Diana when he was 30 and she was 19? No one thought he was a dirty old man. He had to have been dating her when she was 18. Older Hollywood men have been dating and hooking up with very young girls for a long time. Why is that ok. I don´t believe the rumor that is being put out but I´m just saying.

#8, it didn’t work with Trump and it probably won’t work with Alabama Christians. After all, Moore is the one who tried to defy the removal of the Ten Commandments from the courthouse where he worked. Christians won’t fall for this smear.

As to the debate - why should Moore subject himself to a bunch of leftist “moderators” armed with bundles of Gotcha questions for him and softballs for his opponent?

Judge Moore is smart not to give his Democrat opponent any opportunity to further give voice to the smear against him.

As with the Luther Strange "money dunp" primary runoff: the good people of Alabama know how to handle this smear. Since the accusations cannot be resolved before December 12: vote for Judge Moore if you had been inclined to do so before the accusations broke.

That will be a protest against the smear and those who are promulgating it - Jeff Bezos, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and other RINOs, Democrats, and press lackeys (all of whom are simply the Establishment who hate Judge Moore´s independent Christianity).

Then let things play out after the election. If Moore loses, then the Establishment wins again, regardless of the truth in this, and the Democrats will pick up the seat. If Moore wins, then let justice prevail. If the accusations prove true, then Moore will be removed and Governor Ivey (R) can appoint another Republican to hold the seat (Mo Brooks would still be available /s). If the accusations are frivolous and/or malicious, then they will magically "disappear", as with previous political smears.

The GOP should just shut up and stand united---using a technique the Demos have perfected. During the entire Clinton impeachment they never once wavered. They refused to discuss it. It didn´t matter if they were establishment Demos or off-the-wall nutcase radical liberals---they just stayed united.
But the Republicans? One orchestrated attempt at smear after another and they run TO the microphones, elbowing each other out for sound bites of indignation and moral outrage.
We will apparently never learn.

Only two people know if this accusation is true or false.....he and she. There seems to be more and more of these charges being thrown about these days. I would suggest that the accuser be able to prove, beyond doubt, what they are saying. False accusations can ruin a persons life and if proof cannot be presented the accuser should be sued to the limit for defamation of character. It seems that the demoncrats are masters of the art when it comes to falsely charging opponents with being racists, hatemongers, sex perverts, etc. It is time to put a stop to these mere rumors or accusations. Huge lawsuits may be the answer !!!

Why now?

When this could have been done during the primaries, the GOP would have to take the risk of the story being proven false or like Trump´s locker room interview, could have been dismissed by the voters the same way it was dismissed by Trump voters. They couldn´t risk that. Remember, the GOP wanted Hillary and still does. The GOP would rather have the Marxist instead of a conservative and especially instead of a constitutional conservative.

Funny how Juanita Broadrick and all the other bimbo eruptions are inconsequential and this 30 some year old accusation is the absolute truth. Funny how the atheist, antifa, Bernie supporter, occupy murderers and attackers are not to be exposed or discussed and are also inconsequential as well. But if you simply disagree with a Marxist leader, you are a hater, racist, violent, whatever-aphobic, and must be eliminated from society. I wonder why that is.

But Bill Clinton set the standard of sexual misconduct acceptability. Whaaaaahappened?! It’s only sex, who cares? No big deal. Remember the string line of defenders on tv around the clock defending BJ and his sexual misconduct issues which were real and true? If the same standards were being insisted on then as they are now, then he would have been forced to step aside before being impeached. This entire situation is produced and promoted by Mitch McConnell who is stopping to a new low to out a threat to his power base and get Luther Strange on the ballot. You can tell he’s responsible by the way all of his Senator Tino Progressive buddy’s gladly run to a tv camera and mic and spew the issued talking points. It’s shameful and disgusting and another reason to drain Mitch The Swamp Creature. I’m going to donate some hard earned $ to Roy’s campaign. We can not let the enemy win. Let’s roll.

Until the Rats can answer

Who perpetrated these improprieties, and who is the accuser;

What actually happened,

When did this crime occur and who witnessed it or was told about the crime at the time,

Where did it occur and where were the parents?

All of these claims will need to be verified under oath. Until then these lies and smears are fake accusations.

I say run and hold the seat for the Republicans and if there is any real proof, then he´ll need to resign and the governor can appoint another Republican. The Left wants to win at all costs and they want this seat! Screw ´em.

Just remember, it is now considered sexual assault to merely touch a woman. Look what happened to Bush I. This is what political correctness gets you. They have made all sexual assault accusations questionable.

What is happening to Roy Moore is complete utter BS. What is happening to Moore is nothing more than theatre put together by our ´ruling´ class that doesn´t like him and wants to destroy him.

This happened 35 years ago. If it was investigated back then, nothing happened, and case closed. If she never came forward, she decided to move on without pursuing it. Now she changes her mind 35 years later? How much money was she paid?

Don´t buy this for a second.

Poster #3: It´s not helpful that sexual abuse is the ´crime du jur´.

The situation with all these women claiming sexual assault is reaching the level of claiming "you are racist!"

As a survivor, I think any wom--person who reports an assault should be "heard" and the crime/perpetrator investigated...when the assault happens. Waiting decades does not improve one´s credibility, why wasn´t it reported earlier?

In this specific case, I heard on the radio this morning that WaPo sent 2 female reporters to badger the "victim" until she agreed to claim the event happened. If true, it would seem to me that Roy Moore might have a case against WaPo and the individual reporters.

If I were in Roy Moore´s position, I would only agree to debate if I had veto over who could be the moderator, I wouldn´t even consider a LIEberal journalist.

It´s funny how money comes knocking on the women´s door just at the right time to smear a leading Republican politician.

Here are a few simple questions:
If true, was this women 14 years old but said she was 16 years old? Was she promiscuous? Why did she go back a second time? Why didn´t she come forward sooner?
What is her economic status? What is her record? Why should we believe her?
Who is she?

I have no doubt this was a well planned set up. Democrats are pros on how to play the set up card. Funny how this story broke right after Tuesday´s election. They couldn´t wait to get it out.

Judge Roy Moore has no choice but to go for broke at this point. Resigning is for punks and losers and we have enough of them in the party. I believe he could win if he convinces Alabamans he´s innocent and money comes pouring in from around the country. Additionally, he gets a backlash that this was a set up by the Democrats. Remember Paul Wellstone. And most of all, Moore can really win if Trump supports him and pounds the hell out of the fake news junkies.

Another angle. Today, I heard Rush say, what if Trump fires Sessions and he goes back to Alabama and reclaims his Senate seat. Is that possible?...Interesting scenario!!

The Los Angeles Times has given prominent coverage to recent revelations of sexual harassment of women by prominent men, particularly in entertainment and media. Yet a review by NPR finds that the newspaper´s own CEO and publisher, Ross Levinsohn, has been a defendant in two sexual harassment lawsuits and that his conduct in work settings over the past two decades has been called into question repeatedly by female colleagues. This story is based on a review of court documents, financial filings and fresh interviews with 26 former colleagues and associates. Taken in concert, they suggest a pattern of questionable behavior and

One of the most vexing problems of the Trump dossier probe has been that much of the evidence involved is classified and thus hidden from public view. House and Senate investigators are tightly constrained from revealing key aspects of the dossier affair. There is, for example, the question of whether the FBI and Justice Department used the unverified allegations in the dossier as evidence to win a secret court warrant to spy on Americans. Members and staff in both House and Senate know the answer. But it is classified, and they can´t talk. Now, the House Intelligence Committee has taken a

Negotiations over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program are complicated, but at their most basic level involve Democrats asking Republicans to codify protections for Dreamers and Republicans asking Democrats to allocate more resources to border security in exchange for those protections. In a midterm election year where Democrats, especially in the Senate, are defending key seats in states the Republican president won last cycle, you would think funding border security — or supporting provisions on chain migration and the diversity lottery — would be a common-sense decision. But not for today´s Democratic Party. A loud and influential coalition of grassroots progressives has

Crumbs, Nancy Pelosi will say — it’s all crumbs! Twenty thousand American workers over the next five years may disagree. Apple announced today that they plan to invest heavily in their US infrastructure, in large part because of the tax reform bill that Democrats claimed would kill people: Apple to create 20,000 jobs over the next 5 years from CNBC. The headline from Apple is that it will “contribute” $350 billion to the U.S. economy over the next five years, although it’s unclear exactly how the company came to that number. But the company promised to create 20,000 new jobs and a new

The myth of Trump’s ‘global retreat’
New York Post, by John Glaser    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 1/18/2018 4:26:14     Post Reply
An increasing number of observers argue that President Trump is orchestrating fundamental changes to US grand strategy, dismantling the US-led international order and relinquishing America’s overseas commitments. It’s not true. Joe Scarborough recently lamented “America’s dangerous retreat from the world,” drawing a parallel to the isolationism of the inter-war period. “Under the banner of ‘America First,’?” reports Evan Osnos in The New Yorker, “President Trump is reducing US commitments abroad.” Misplaced as it is, this criticism isn’t cut from whole cloth. Last year the Trump administration abruptly withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal and the Paris Climate Accord, and has also approved

Still, Kelly insisted that the president has been committed to building hundreds of miles of new wall on the border as part of a deal with Democrats on immigration. “This president, if you´ve seen what he´s done, he has changed the way he´s looked at a number of things,” Kelly told Bret Baier on “Special Report.” Kelly didn’t deny a report in the Washington

By the grace of God, and thanks to our robust and decentralized system of government, the U.S. has survived nearly a year with an unprepared, underinformed, incurious, incontinent narcissist as president. In fact, in some regards, we’ve even thrived during this past year. Still, the president’s character — mostly his colossal self-regard, his lack of self-control, and his unwillingness or inability to learn what he ought — made the year at times aggravating, terrifying, and certainly divisive. Trump hasn’t brought on any catastrophes yet, but he has frayed the nerves of his country. And there’s still three more years of this. I’m sure

Some lawmakers would like to see the Justice Department prosecute former spy chief James Clapper for inaccurate testimony to Congress about domestic surveillance before it´s too late. Privacy-conscious critics say looming five-year statutes of limitation for perjury and making false statements — establishing a March 12 deadline for charges — make an urgent case for action, and that nonprosecution would set a dangerous precedent that impedes oversight and executive-branch accountability. Clapper, director of national intelligence from 2010 to 2017, testified during a March 2013 Senate Intelligence Committee hearing that the NSA was "not wittingly” collecting “any type of data at

When Donald Trump was elected America’s 45th president in November 2016 the world took a collective deep breath. This was a man derided by his critics as an isolationist, woefully out of his depth on foreign policy matters, and imbued with a supposedly dangerous and reckless nationalism. European leaders queued up to condemn the new leader of the free world in the court of international opinion. But a year into his presidency Trump’s actual record has been far more effective than his detractors predicted. “America First” has not resulted in a U.S. withdrawal from the world. Far from it. The

U.S. immigration officials have begun preparing for a major sweep in San Francisco and other Northern California cities in which federal officers would look to arrest more than 1,500 undocumented people while sending a message that immigration policy will be enforced in the sanctuary state, according to a source familiar with the operation. Officials at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE, declined to comment Tuesday on plans for the operation. The campaign, centered in the Bay Area, could happen within weeks, and is expected to become the biggest enforcement action of its kind under President Trump, said the source, who

President Trump kicked CNN star Jim Acosta out of the Oval Office Tuesday after the network’s senior White House correspondent badgered him with racially charged questions. Acosta has made a habit of grandstanding and interrupting when Trump and his surrogates are available to the media. Tuesday was no exception, as Acosta yelled, “Mr. President,” three times before finally getting Trump’s attention. “Did you say that you want more people to come in from Norway? Did you say that you wanted more people from Norway? Is that true Mr. President?” Acosta frantically shouted. “I want them to come in from everywhere… everywhere. Thank you

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century. "Chanel liberated women (after World War I) by dressing them in male fabrics like tweed,"

Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month. In an interview with Dutch radio, Ploumen said she views the honor as a

Obama’s current office, which is run by former de facto President Valerie Jarrett, is just a mile or so from the White House. It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP? Obama being Obama, with his solar-system-sized ego intact, has been promising to do

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up

CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact

After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in

In an exclusive interview with Utah Gov.

He’ll have a lot of support from the wealthy people that he knows from when he ran for president. The people on the same list of donors that he had before for 2012, including those from Utah, is a very good place for him to raise money,” Herbert, a

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump’s combative attitude toward the press and called on Congress to protect journalists worldwide. “Whether Trump knows it or not, these efforts are being closely watched by foreign leaders who are already using his words as cover as they silence and shutter one of the key pillars of democracy,” McCain said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post. McCain called the Trump administration’s treatment of journalists “inconsistent at best and hypocritical at worst,” particularly when it comes to condemning attacks on the press abroad. McCain cited foreign leaders who have
