RNC and Roy Moore, together
again: Spectacularly stupid
and morally obscene

USA Today, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/6/2017 10:08:23 PM

Rumors that the Republican National Committee was built on the site of an ancient moron burial ground gained new credence this week when it confirmed that it was renewing its support for Alabama´s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. I shouldn’t joke, because the worst thing about the RNC’s decision isn’t the stupidity — though the stupidity is real, and spectacular — but the moral obscenity. Last month, the RNC and the National Republican Senatorial Committee pulled out of their joint fundraising agreements because Moore had been credibly accused by several women of having preyed upon them when they were teenagers,

And Moore "credibly" denies the accusations.

And the alternative is to give a leftist, Doug Jones, six years to vote the straight Democrat Party line. No thank you.

The RNC now sees the writing on the wall of a win and wants to be able to take credit for it and possibly ensnare Moore into some sort of one-sided loyalty. Moore should tell them thanks, but no thanks.

The credibility of his accusers is a lot to be desired. How can you convict a person on only accusations and no proof. Nobody would ever run for Congress again if they are disqualified by a Accuser with no evidence...

Oh, way to go, Jonah! What a terribly disguised POS article. Would your rather hand the seat to a Democrat just because some women came up with a really not-so-credible accusation of Moore creeping on them as teens? Think about it, dummy! For crying out loud, what the h is wrong with people these days?

Look, I know about Jonah. I´ve been a fan of his for years. but, this guy now needs to go on a sabbatical or a vacay to get his head on straight. All this one dimensional
BS going around and knee jerk politics is getting to him.

If Moore happens to be a bad guy, things can be done to censure him. If real evidence suddenly appeared that clearly demonstrated the guy was as immoral as a Democrat, then something can be done. but, the man is a demonstrable conservative before he is a demonstrable monster! At the very least he can keep the seat warm for a future man or woman to your/our liking. But, for crying out loud, do not pull the plug in the bottom of the boat just because you don´t like the color of it!

So the Democrats can do all this sex garbage x1000 and we have to hand them a crucial victory, over 38 year accusations that have no proof, so that we have the moral high ground?

Jonah was prepared to put the evil worse-than-trump-times-10,000 hr Clinton in the White House.

NO thanks. I will take advice from someone who isn’t icky from sidling up to hr Clinton.

I read a headline today, Another Woman Gives Evidence on Moore or similar. I read the article. It was a card from Moore. They had dated when she was 17 (of course). They kissed like once. He never tried to have sex with her. When she got engaged later he wanted to meet him to make sure he was good enough for her.

This woman cried according to the article as she realized what a monster Moore is after finding that card.

It actually makes him sound like a saint. Seinfeld dated Shoshanna when she was 17 and he was 39. See, the Demons can do it all day long. Vote for Moore. I am over the libs garbage.

Journalism 101: When you start out your opinion editorial with a bald faced lie -- "...because Moore had been CREDIBLY accused by several women..." -- you immediately render your argument invalid!!!!

Can someone please explain to me what happened to Jonah?!?!?!? Seriously, he used to be one of the good guys in journalism. He was a good and serious conservative who could express himself in clear and straight-forward ways.

But it´s like Trump Derangement Syndrome has rotted his once genius brain. What a pity...

Forty year old accusations and Moore has been in public office for many decades, with many election campaigns. Not credible that they only come forward now.

I call "prove it", and he is innocent until proven guilty.

Sadly, Jonah is on the Dem/Swamp Creature side of this issue, too.

"The seriousness of the charges" overrides the concept of innocent until proven guilty in his mind, clearly. Kangaroo kourt time, it seems.

Not for me.

No, no, no, #19. If Moore is guilty of abuse w/ the 14 yr old then he should not run and should be in jail. I think we all agree on that. If he kissed 17 year old girls when he was 32 and never did anything else the next 38 years, then you cannot say that we are slimy as the Democrats. Furthermore, where is your proof that Moore did the that one awful thing? I was totally against him too until I saw all the holes in the story. I am all for booting out perv Rs. But you have got to have proof before you hang somebody.

Jonah may not realize that the attack on Christian Judge Moore was aimed at President Trump. Maybe he is blinded by the NeverTrump hatred permeating The National Review that Rich Lowry and Jonah Goldberg have ruined. Sad to see. Donald Trump is the best President in my lifetime and we will defend him to the end. Judge Moore is for the ten commmandments and president Trump for Jerusalem as capital of Israel. Wake up young man!

Moore has run and/or been elected to statewide office four times in the past, yet nobody ever bothered to come forward and make a claim against him until he was running for the U.S. Senate. The whole affair has a really bad stench of political sabotage by the left. As a result, I am inclined to believe Judge Moore over all of the so called accusers. They´ll disappear after the election, whether he wins or loses. We can bet on that.

Give it up Jonah, your hypocrisy is showing again.

One of the problems with the stand that these nevertrumpers and eGOP oppo groups have is that the odds are stacking up real well for at least a couple of them being accused of harassment from years ago. So why should we listen to their cries of woe and denial if it happens? After all, women don´t lie, right?

If 3/4 + of congress is liberal/ unprincipled, and 4/4 of the msm is liberal/pravda, then Jonah is conservative as he calculates his best shot for future employment is not to be the truth teller. There will always be redemption for the scribes after Trump´s realignment, or war. As he and all his conservative-left friends have said to Gary Cooper in "High Noon":"I´m only a piano player."

What a disappointment is the once-honorable and astute Mr. Goldberg.
So many conservative characters have been assassinated by the left with impunity, yet until this month, their major players have totally gotten away with not only egregious sexual harassment, but theft, corruption, slander, even rape and murder. Now in a fit of national virtue preening, nobody is safe from groundless accusations, and ´guilty until proven innocent beyond a shadow of a doubt´ seems to be the unwritten law of the land.
An ER doc I know once remarked how few rape cases present with any physical findings at all, no DNA, no bruising, no emotional trauma apparent... The counseling nurses can document nothing. Just a claim, not verifiable. And that is right then and there, not 40 years later.
How many eye-witness accounts of accidents and crime scenes are loaded with misperceptions? Remember the ´recovered memories´ fad of some years back, where ´victims´ were persuaded of abuse that didn´t happen, and innocent people had not only their reputations and livelihoods ruined, but served hard time? How about the alleged hate crimes, ugly graffiti spray-painted by members of the aggrieved groups themselves? The Duke debacle?
This that same lynch mob mentality, and I´m not buying the left´s coordinated hit job on Moore.

Amid increasing Republican attacks on Robert S. Mueller III over the scope and impartiality of his investigation of Russian campaign meddling, President Trump denied on Sunday that he had any intention of firing the special counsel. "No — no, I´m not," Trump said on Sunday as he returned to the White House from Camp David, when reporters asked if he was considering ousting Mueller, as some conservatives have urged. Earlier, the White House sought to tamp down speculation Trump would move directly against the special counsel, even as a senior Cabinet official noted the president had the authority to remove

NBC Made Payment To

An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment. Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package. The woman complained to CNBC executives about Matthews making inappropriate comments and jokes about her while in the company

Turnout would be the key to which of the wildly conflicting polls would best presage the result of Alabama’s special Senate election, wrote Republican consultant Patrick Ruffini earlier this week. That proved correct. Statewide, turnout was down 37 percent from November 2016. It was down less, 31 percent, in the five metropolitan counties around Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomery, and Mobile, with their black communities and most of the state’s highly educated whites. Turnout was down by even less, 28 percent, in the ten rural counties where the majority of voters are black. But it plunged 42 percent in the remaining 52

New York Times claims Obama

The New York Times has published a story with an accompanying chart suggesting that while President Trump has told 103 falsehoods during his first 10 months in office, President Barack Obama told just 18 throughout his entire presidency. It was a chart clearly designed to be spread widely on social media, given that it confirms all the priors of the publication´s readership. But it was also absurdly charitable to Obama. In fact, an additional analysis of Obama´s public statements, detailed below, finds that in fact, Obama had told at least 18 falsehoods in selling Obamacare in 2009 alone. To start,

The announcement came on Saturday. Just three days before the Alabama special election that transfixed the nation, and on the same day that President Trump fact-checked the Washington Post’s Dave Weigel, Iraq’s prime minister declared victory in the war against ISIS. Iraq — with indispensable American help — has regained control of its cities and its border with Syria. ISIS has been reduced to a shadow of its former self. The victory isn’t confined to Iraq. American-allied forces control ISIS’s former capital in Syria, and the world’s largest jihadist army is gone. Bands of insurgents still prowl the countryside, and

Thursday afternoon Variety published an exclusive report on three new allegations of sexual misconduct by actor Dustin Hoffman, including one account that involves a minor. Cori Thomas was in high school when she says Dustin Hoffman exposed himself to her in a hotel room. Melissa Kester was a recent college graduate when Hoffman allegedly sexually assaulted her while recording audio for the film “Ishtar.” A third woman, who asked to remain anonymous, said that Hoffman assaulted her in the back of a station wagon and manipulated her into a subsequent sexual encounter that left her traumatized. Cori Thomas said her

Roy Moore Is Acting

Roy Moore lost the election on Tuesday; it’s now Thursday, and he still has yet to concede — which sounds kind of a lot like a snowflake move to me. When Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump last year, many people criticized her for refusing to give a concession speech that same night — and honestly, I think that she deserved this criticism. Yes, she may have called Trump to concede privately that night, but I’d still have to agree that her refusal to give a speech was the wrong move. After all, not only did it seem immature and

For a year now, there’s been a myth among Republicans: the Legend of Trump. It goes something like this. Once upon a time, there was an unbeatable candidate, a world-famous politician whose husband had been president, who received unquestioning loyalty from the media. Then came the Dragonslayer: a real-estate mogul with a toilet of gold and a tongue of iron, who cut the unconquerable evil queen down to size and seized the throne from her. The laws of political gravity simply didn’t apply to him: He could utter any vulgarity, brazen through any scandal, batter down any media infrastructure. And

The anti-Trump text messages between Peter Strzok -- the recently demoted FBI agent on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team -- and his alleged mistress Lisa Page are worse than anyone imagined, as PJ Media reported here and here. But one of those texts stands out among the others. The Justice Department provided the House and Senate Judiciary Committees with the text messages late Tuesday night. Republicans on the Judiciary Committee then questioned Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about them during the committee´s oversight hearing on Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s influence in the 2016 U.S. election.

Comedian Bill Maher gave $15,000 to the group, a rebuke of a politician who has twice appeared on his talk show. Former California Sen. Barbara Boxer gave $2,500, as did Academy Award recipient Leonardo DiCaprio. Actor Ted Danson gave $1,500.

Will Trump´s lows ever hit rock bottom?

With his latest tweet, clearly implying that a United States senator would trade sexual favors for campaign cash, President Trump has shown he is not fit for office. Rock bottom is no impediment for a president who can always find room for a new low. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday dismissed the president´s smear as a misunderstanding because he used similar language about men. Of course, words used about men and women are different. When candidate Trump said a journalist was bleeding from her "wherever," he didn´t mean her nose. And as is the case with all

The Washington Examiner has obtained hundreds of text messages between Peter Strzok — the agent on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team who was demoted for critical messages about President Trump — and his alleged mistress Lisa Page, a lawyer also assigned to the probe. The messages were provided by the Justice Department to congressional committees. As described by the Examiner’s Kelly Cohen, the text messages show a couple whose hatred of Trump ran deep. For example, in March 2016, Page texted Strzok, “God trump is a loathsome human.” Strzok replied, “Yet he may win.” In July, during the Republican National

Over 700 employees at the Environmental Protection Agency have quit or taken early retirement during the Trump administration so far, bringing the agency close to employment levels not seen since Reagan. ThinkProgress, whose senior editor is scared of his plumber who he fears may have voted for Trump, is warning that the exodus will lead to "dirtier air" and "dirtier water." "Since Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt took over the top job at the agency in March, more than 700 employees have either retired, taken voluntary buyouts, or quit, signaling the second-highest exodus of employees from the agency in nearly a

An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment. Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package. The woman complained to CNBC executives about Matthews making inappropriate comments and jokes about her while in the company

There’s bad news and there’s worse news for President Donald Trump in new polls released this week. First comes the latest round of polling showing that Trump is the most unpopular president on record. Just 32% of respondents to a new Associated Press-NORC poll said they approved of the job Trump is doing as president, while an overwhelming 67% they disapproved. Among those who don’t think the president is doing a good job, more than half say they “strongly disapprove” of his work. The poll — conducted earlier this month — also suggests that nearly 70% of Americans believe the United States is “heading

I don’t know whether this is comedy or a sign that in rural America, Democrats really don’t have anyone to run in statewide races. There were rumors that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) could become the next director of the CIA, current CIA Director Mike Pompeo would become secretary of state, and current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be asked to take a hike. Talk about some unwelcome Thanksgiving news if you’re Tillerson. The Trump White House has rejected the notion that this plan is in the works. Tillerson himself said he’s never considered leaving his current post.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) suggested Thursday that Americans need to have more babies or risk a collapse of popular entitlements like Medicare and Social Security. “This is going to be the new economic challenge for America: people. Baby boomers are retiring — I did my part, but we need to have higher birth rates in this country,” Ryan, a father of three, told reporters as he riffed on how Republicans will tackle entitlement and welfare reform in 2018. “Baby boomers are retiring and we have fewer people following them in the workforce.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is returning to Arizona and will miss the final vote on his party’s tax bill this week, CBS News reported Sunday. McCain, who has been hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center suffering from the side effects of his treatment for brain cancer, reportedly left Washington, D.C., on Sunday to return home for the holidays. This means he will not be in D.C. for the GOP tax bill vote, which is expected to take place early in the week. Republicans have won over two key votes for the measure, meaning they should still have the razor-thin majority needed to

For much of the year, Kirsten Gillibrand’s critics — sensing a presidential aspirant in their midst — had assumed that the New York senator could not hear enough about herself. For one day at least, it appeared she had. It had been about 10 hours since President Trump accused her of “begging” for campaign contributions that she “would do anything” to secure, and the Ms. Gillibrand, driving with her 14-year-old son on Tuesday evening, flipped on the radio looking for an update on the Senate race in Alabama. The top story, instead, was her. The radio went off again. What, exactly,

Democrats hate her (#Tolerance)... Feminists despise her (#GlassCeiling)... Progressives want her silenced (#Diversity)... And the liberal media dreads her. Who is she? She’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders. In case you’ve been hiding under a freshly broken shard of glass from one of the ceilings being broken all over Washington D.C. lately - keep reading, it gets better. She’s the 3rd female to ever hold the office of the White House Press Secretary. - Dee Dee Myers was the first under Clinton (1993-1994) - Dana Perino was the 2nd who served under Bush in 2007 And it’s no surprise that Trump put her there because she’s perfect for the job.

Democrats, who have a monopoly of power in California politics, are proposing to spend $1 billion a year to provide health care to illegal immigrants living in the state. Medi-Cal, which is the state’s Medicaid program, would eliminate legal residency requirements.The proposal was offered as part of a $4.3 billion proposal from San Francisco Democrat Assemblyman Phil Ting, the head of the Assembly budget committee. According to NBC Bay Area, 7% of people residing in California lack health coverage, many of them illegal immigrants. California has already eliminated legal residency requirements for Medicaid coverage for

Spurred by the multitude of sexual abuse scandals, top Hollywood executives have tapped Anita Hill to chair the newly formed Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace. The commission made the announcement Friday following a meeting convened by Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, Nike Foundation founder and co-chair Maria Eitel, Nina Shaw, and venture captialist Freada Kapor Klein. “The Commission will not seek just one solution, but a comprehensive strategy to address the complex and inter-related causes of the problems of parity and power,” said Kennedy.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is “worried” the House Intelligence Committee is about to pull the plug on the Russia investigation. In a Friday Tweetstorm, the Committee’s ranking Democrat fretted about the future of the probe — which Schiff believes is something of a sham. “Republicans have scheduled no witnesses after next Friday and none in 2017,” Schiff wrote. “We have dozens of outstanding witnesses on key aspects of our investigation that they refuse to contact and many document requests they continue to sit on.” The California Democrat added, “It appears Republicans want to conduct just enough interviews to give the
