NRSC cuts fundraising ties with Roy Moore
Washington Examiner, by Gabby Morrongiello

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/10/2017 5:01:48 PM

The Republican Party´s Senate campaign apparatus has severed ties with Roy Moore, a day after the Alabama Senate candidate was accused of engaging in sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl when he was in his early 30s. According to Federal Election Commission records, the National Republican Senatorial Committee removed itself Friday from a joint fundraising agreement with Moore´s campaign. The Alabama Republican Party and the Republican National Committee still belong to the agreement. NRSC Chair and Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner called the allegations against Moore "deeply troubling" after the Washington Post broke the story on Thursday. "If these allegations are

The key word here is "IF".

There is no proof that anything happened. Yet, he is being crucified.

And, saddest of all, it is the Repuli-CAN´Ts that are screaming the loudest for his head.

Expect EVERY Republican candidate for any position to get this same treatment from now on if it works here.

Fight Roy!!!!! You are one of the good guys. A true conservative. We need you in Congress now more than ever!!!

Is there ANY independent proof that four reasonable people would accept as being more than speculation? Just like the Trump Russia collusion or for that matter accusations against Clarence Thomas, the answer is nothing, not a shred.

No one has ever seen Republicans move this fast. Of course, it is against a Republican, and fully orchestrated. At the same time, the Republicans are testifying to the fine character of Senator Menendez. This attack is so malicious, that I do not care what Mr. Moore did, or did not do, I would vote for Moore anyway. He is still a better man than any Democrat or any GOPe.

This is the lead statement on the NRSC site:

"The NRSC (National Republican Senatorial Committee) is the only national organization solely devoted to strengthening the Republican Senate Majority and electing Republicans to the United States Senate."

This is the NRSC site which will accept e-mails. Maybe we should rise up and let them know what we think of their treachery!

Judge Moore crucified by his own party for filthy accusations which are so suspect as to be laughable. I
keep wondering how much more Democrat the GOPe has to act before we realize its time for new party. This has all been coordinated with the Deep State. Crickets from those elected Pubbies who assure us of their strong Christian principles. Past heartbreaking that we have such disgusting men in the Senate.

My first thought #6.

Maybe i´ve missed it, but where are these now middle-aged women? Why don´t they come forward, in public?

IF the charges are true (and it is hard to believe them, since Moore has been in public office, as a JUDGE, no less.

Wouldn´t you think these women would have been screaming Hypocrite! when Moore was on his Ten Commandments campaign?

So, if the NRSC wants to have any credibility, they should make a statement that people are innocent until proven guilty, and we should not rush to destroy the man before we´ve seen the proof.

There´ve been so many false charges made against men, and then their reputations are ruined.

If he behaved in such an unseemly manner, then he ought to step aside, but certainly not on the basis of these anonymous accusation.

Just wondering, will the Republican Senators demand Menendez step down if he´s convicted?

We know what to do: support Roy Moore, and send another message to the GOPe.

IF the accusations have any merit, that will play out after December 12th. Meanwhile, keep the Dems out of the seat and whack the RINOs.

This thing is Mitch’s tool to blow out his opposition. Pretty much unlimited funds to spend on the complete destruction of any Conservative standing in his way. This is no surprise and is totally expected. It is clearly apparent that this is a total declaration of war on Roy by McConnell and the Rino GOPe hit squad.

Even the women accusing Weinstein of things decades ago came forward in public to do so. Where is this lady accusing Moore? And where is the police report accusing him of statutory rape?

Is ANYONE in our government or the news going to stand up for due process anymore? If not, then, I´m sorry, but we´re all ****ed.

#15 has it right, I think.

If those NRSC RINOs cut fundraising ties with Roy Moore, maybe we should cut fundraising ties with them.

Going further,no matter what happens here, I plan to make NO DONATIONS to the NRSC. Instead make donations to INDIVIDUAL candidates that are not RINOs.

Some observations here:
If the GOPes had moved this fast to repeal husseincare, they would have had the senate, house and presidency for the next 20 years.
Some commenters are still under the impression that we and the GOPes are on the same side. This is not true. It´s We The People vs. the GOPe-rats.
The GOPes are more afraid of something/someone than they are of their voters.
Roy Moore should run against McTurtle, Romney, McCain, etc. in addition to the rats.

No statute of limitations on this type of non-proven accusation? It is working all over the place in liberal land so they decided this is better than October surprise.

His accusers should be named so he can sue for damages if it is false.

But if we splinter into factions we are more done than they want Moore to be. I don´t know if the far right can relate to Atkins and Bachman being too extreme on anti-abortion to be elected by the middle and independents. They just will not vote against total choice for women ban.

Think guns and anti-guns and how the democrats dance a delicate dance for the moderates. Gun control and abortion on demand or total elimination are the topics that keep us all in party?

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke at a Clinton Foundation event on Saturday where she complained about people spreading misinformation about her as she delivered some misinformation of her own.

Thursday, July 6, 1989 Quogue- I love how New York changes so completely in the summer. It’s my favorite time of year here, sitting at my wooden desk before the open window with the cool sea breeze. The August issue arrived by FedEx. The Jackie O cover story, and Michael Milken’s rise and fall by Marie, is a much more commercial combo than July. To generate some summer heat I assigned Ed Klein to do Jackie to mark her sixtieth birthday. I asked him because he was always going on about how she liked him when he edited The New York Times Magazine.

Former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown asked for leniency from a federal judge in Florida on Friday. She faces a lengthy prison term after being convicted of stealing thousands of dollars that were meant to go to charity. In May, a jury convicted Brown of 18 felony counts, including filing false tax returns, mail fraud, and working with others to run a fake non-profit group. Her conviction represents a major fall from political grace. Brown was one of the first black elected officials to be elected to federal office in Florida in 1992. She represented the Jacksonville, Florida area in the

More than two dozen investigators have spent weeks scouring wine country trying to solve the mystery at the heart of the most destructive wildfires in California history: What caused the infernos that killed 43 people and destroyed more than 8,000 buildings? The answers will have wide-ranging ramifications for the region, which faces staggering losses and a challenging rebuilding effort. Losses from insured properties alone are expected to far exceed $1 billion, and the total bill for the fires will be still higher.

In the longstanding liberal narrative about Bill Clinton and his scandals, the one pushed by Clinton courtiers and ratified in media coverage of his post-presidency, our 42nd president was only guilty of being a horndog, his affairs were nobody’s business but his family’s, and oral sex with Monica Lewinsky was a small thing that should never have put his presidency in peril. That narrative could not survive the current wave of outrage over male sexual misconduct. So now a new one may be forming for the age of Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump. In this story, Kenneth Starr and the

A spokesperson for Sen. Al Franken, a Democrat from Minnesota, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that ´no´ the embattled senator would not resign. ´He is spending time with his family in Washington, D.C., and will be through the Thanksgiving holiday,´ the aide told the newspaper. ´And he´s doing a lot of reflecting.´ On Thursday, Franken became the latest high-profile man whose career is now in jeopardy over bad behavior with a woman. Radio host Leeann Tweeden said in 2006, when performing alongside Franken at a traveling USO tour, the then-comedian grabbed her breasts without her permission when Tweeden was sleeping and kissed

University of California regents meeting on Thursday admonished UC President Janet Napolitano for agreeing to a plan that led to interference in a state audit on the operation of her office. Her approval of a plan in which top aides would preview campus administrators’ confidential survey responses “reflected poor judgment and set in motion a course of conduct that the Board of Regents finds unacceptable,” board chairman George Kieffer said in a statement after the regents met behind closed doors for nearly five hours. But the regents quickly and unanimously agreed to support Napolitano’s continued leadership, Kieffer said after the

It is real. I’m not booked on any

President Donald Trump hit out early Saturday at ´crooked´ Hillary Clinton, his defeated election opponent.
