The Real Problem with Judging
Judge Roy Moore

American Thinker, by Thomas Lipscomb

Few societies have gone through as wrenching changes in behavior and social norms in the past forty years as America has. We can scarcely recognize the social mores and attitudes then from today’s perspective. But as L.P. Hartley put it: “The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there.” And if the changes over time are confusing enough, try understanding the regional variations. Moore was from Etowah County in northeast Alabama, on the southwestern edge of Appalachia. His lower class family lived way out of town and finally got indoor plumbing his last year of high school. Although

Ah, the pieces of the puzzle fall into place. And the intentional nastiness of and deliberate refusal to contextualize by the Wapo, when a Republican is involved, becomes clear (once again)

Other than being pro-choice, and pro-Planned Parenthood, I have heard very little about Doug Jones. I recently went searching for some of his stands on the issues - this guy is outrageous! No wonder they put all the emphasis on Judge Roy Moore! If they talked about who Dog Jones really is there would be no contest!

The real problem with judging Roy Moore is that the only standard that matters is his likely behavior if elected. Judge Moore will not vote to remove President Trump from office. In the debased currency of contemporary politics, that´s enough to vote for him.

It´s sad Judge Moore could not put this into words on the stump.

Being only a few years younger than the Judge this is what I surmised but it is far better stated than I could have put together.

Yes, exactly so. Different times, different standards, and the situation in rural areas is far different than in the cities, thank goodness.
As a 17 year old in the rural south in the late 1960s, I had a close friend who was a college student, recently discharged from a couple tours in the army. He was about 26 or 27. We had a mutual friend, a young woman who was 16. They were good friends and "ran around together" in the term of the day, with full knowledge of and approval of her parents. I was pretty close to both, and I am certain nothing sexual ever happened, eventually he graduated, moved away and got married, not to her.

I am not bothered in the slightest by the idea that a 16 year old might be friends with or even dating a mid/late twenties guy. Even running that up to 30s doesn´t impress me. My sister married a man who was 15 years older than she was, with the unfortunate (and not surprising) result in her being a fairly young widow.

Forty year old "indescretions" which may or may not depend mostly on faded memories or even intentional lies are worth essentially zero.

it is not difficult to ponder on how many of the newsies and self righteous politicians had the wxact same awkward time in their past.Young women frequently preferred older men over callow youth. This nothingburger was not newsworthy as such just a vehicle for revenge on past judgements. Forgiveness is a grace when given and received, Wapo is sadly lacking in this commodity, go Roy, good luck today.

Reasons not to vote for Roy Moore that have nothing to do with teenage girls:

He taught a class discouraging women from running for office.

He´s referred to people as "reds and yellows".

He thinks the accusations of pedophilia are pushed by homosexuals and socialists.

Accepted money from a Neo-nazi group.

Said gay marriage was worse than slavery.

Wouldn´t rule out death penalty for gays.

Wants to rescind free trade agreements.

He´s anti-immigrant.

Believes 9/11 is God´s punishment for legalizing sodomy and abortion.

In politics today electing politicians who support the right political agenda and policies should be the most important factor the voters should take into consideration.

The Liberal Democrat socialist oriented political agenda and policies are so odious to average Americans that they cannot get elected in most parts of the country. Therefore for the liberal Democrats to have a chance in many elections, they must dwell upon the personalities and character of Republican politicians, many times through fake news and fraudulent claims of long past sexual abuse that cannot be proven or disproved. We are seeing the Democrats do that in Alabama now, and we saw the Democrats do that in the election last year. Potential Republican canadidates had better get ready, as you can bet that the Democrats will continue to use dirty trick politics as that’s all they have.

With all that´s going on in DC Moore looks as the dems say...the new normal. Cuomo said the terrorists attack is the new normal, Governor Brown said fires are the new normal.

DHS preparing to arrest leaders

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts. “The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee. Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan says those policies put his officers and local communities at more risk because they have to

A senior AIDS official at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been arrested in a sting where he thought he was going to be engaging in "water sports" (that didn´t involve water) with a young boy. In reality, he was talking to the police. A director within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is accused of asking a person, who he thought to be a 15-year-old boy, to perform a variety of sex [sic] acts including urination. On Thursday, Michael Goldrosen, 56, of Silver Spring, was formally indicted in Montgomery County Circuit Court on one

Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel announced on Friday that he will dissolve his campaign to challenge incumbent Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) due to a family medical issue. Mandel said on Friday, We recently learned that my wife has a health issue that will require my time, attention and presence. In other words, I need to be there.

Michael Oren: Obama Rejected Iran

Former US president Barack Obama chose not to support the 2009 Iranian Green Protest Movement because he hoped to reach a deal with Iran on its nuclear weapons that he signed six years later, Deputy Minister Michael Oren (Kulanu) said on Monday. Obama’s failure to help Iranian protesters has been criticized since then by Israeli officials, led by Jewish Agency chairman and former Soviet dissident Natan Sharansky, who has called it the biggest failure to help human rights in modern history. Oren, who was the ambassador to the US at the time, said Obama initially claimed he would not support

On the fourth day of the nationwide uprising of the Iranian people, regime officials are acknowledging popular anger against and abhorrence of the regime and the uprising spreading across the country. The people are seeking regime change in Iran, and this has a major impact for the U.S.´s and the international community´s foreign policy in the Middle East and possibly beyond. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), which is a major force behind the protests, released a statement in which she said, in part, "The ongoing protests in different cities against the regime

A huge explosion has rocked a busy supermarket in St Petersburg, leaving at least 10 people injured. The blast happened in the Perekrestok supermarket in the northeast of the cities, and shoppers fled in panic as emergency crews descended on the scene. One person is believed to be in a serious condition, while a further three were taken to hospital. Six more were treated at the scene. It is thought a bomb packed with shrapnel exploded in a storage locker, and authorities are treating the explosion as a deliberate attempt to kill. It comes days after a foiled terror plot

The Clintons and their associates, whether it´s Sandy Berger or Cheryl Mills, certainly have a gift for making paperwork disappear. Sandy Berger, Bill Clinton’s former National Security Adviser, stole classified documents about the terror failures of the Clinton administration, hid documents under a construction trailer, lied about taking them and destroyed some of them. Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Let´s begin with some accusations. They are well founded and as credible as any against Roy Moore – perhaps more so. The FBI´s first director, J. Edgar Hoover, was reputed to have compiled incriminating dossiers on just about every top office-holder in Washington, D.C., up to and including the presidents, under several of whose tenures Hoover served. Whenever there was talk of firing him, Hoover reportedly met with the contemporary chief of state and persuaded him to retain him (Hoover) in his post. Regarding President Kennedy, there was surely a great deal in the dossier, especially as concerned his scandalous

Saudi Arabia´s King Salman is reportedly set to announce he will step down as monarch and name his son as successor. If confirmed, it would cement the power of Prince Mohammed bin Salman, 32, who has ordered the arrests of more than three dozen princes and ministers in a corruption crackdown.

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders.

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real

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

From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

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."
