Political sex-slinging in Alabama

 

Since Alabama has garnered national attention over the Dec 12th special election, and since Roy Moore has already been convicted in the court of public opinion, I thought as a resident of the great state of Alabama I would give you a report from inside the state.

First, let’s back up a little and follow the timeline, the players, and the plan.

Summertime 2017, its primary season.

Mo Brooks, Luther Strange and Roy Moore are battling to be the Republican nominee for the special election on Dec 12th to fill the senate seat Jeff Sessions vacated when he became attorney general.

The 3 choices:

Mo Brooks – who cares he wasn’t going to win.

Luther Strange – a good guy and probably would be pretty good senator for the people of Alabama and current temporary fill in for Sessions. But a little too establishment. You know a good ole boy.

Roy Moore – Quite a character. Radical would be an understatement. Moore is well respected in this state for his stance against Gay marriage and his fight to keep the 10 commandments in the court room, which cost him his judgeship. A major anti-swamper.

As expected Mo Brooks was blown out in the 3 way run off, then there were 2.

A runoff that should have gone to Luther Strange. And probably would have, but then came the McConnell Trump endorsement. That turned out to be the kiss of death for Luther. Not because of President Trump but because of McConnell.

Mitch McConnell is the swamp, he is hated, and I mean hated, by every conservative in Alabama.

The fact that Moore beat Strange in the run-off is proof there is a real movement behind the drain the swamp slogan. If McConnell had kept his mouth shut Luther would have won the primary. But Ole Mitch can’t help it, he is clueless. The liberals have out smarted Mitch again.  Status quo for the last 10 or 12 years. He can’t even win with a majority in both houses of Congress and Trump in the White house.

He’s a loser and we don’t take kindly to losing in this state, which is another reason Mitch is so despised by Alabamians.

So now it’s down to Radical Roy Moore and Doug Jones on the democratic side. Who the hell is Doug Jones anyway? But before we get to that here’s what happened next.

Chelsea Clinton began endorsing Doug Jones on Twitter under the #AlSen hashtag. Why? She’s not an elected official, but she is a Clinton.

Well one can only assume the liberal powers-that-be decided it was time for Chelsea to do something to earn that over a million dollar a year salary other than just being a Clinton, so she sprang into action.

My personal thoughts were; ‘butt out Chelsea, you don’t live here.’

It soon became obvious Chelsea’s endorsement was worthless, and rightfully so.

So the Lib’s needed to change tactics. They would attack Roy Moore’s background. It’s an old but effective tactic. The point of attack to use is the one that’s currently popular in the news cycle.

Guess what that is.

Since the Weinstein allegations were big news, and ‘sexually abused women’ were coming out in droves the weapon of choice was naturally allegations of sexual abuse.

The plan; use the same weapon to defeat Roy Moore. The story broke in the Washington post, and Roy Moore was convicted in the court of public opinion. All too easy.

Follow along here. First it was the Chelsea endorsement, which failed, then the Washington Post article.

Which begs the question; who fed the story to the Washington Post?

Am I defending Roy Moore? No, I don’t know if he’s guilty or not, and neither do you. But I do believe a man is innocent until proven guilty. I also know accusations are not facts. And accusations from someone about something that happened over 30 years ago are extremely suspect.

The planned attack from the democrats was instantly effective since sexual allegations were in the news cycle, Roy Moore is a man, he’s white, and he’s a republican. Guilty as accused.

Enter Gloria Allred, the pathetic legal leech whose schict is male character assassination. Dig up a female victim, or several victims, construct a biased (or BS)  story and parade this whole act through the court of public opinion, hoping to walk away with a sack full of money (where she and the victim split the cash, her percentage being higher than the victim’s because she so earned it).

Which raises another important question: who is paying for Gloria’s services? She’s not going to collect any money from her collection of clients; they don’t have the kind of money her fees call for. Even if this goes to court and she wins, it could be years before she sees a dime.

Someone is paying Gloria Allred right now, and it needs to be revealed who that is. The Democratic Party is- that is my accusation.

Who are Moore’s accusers? In in the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t matter. Not to belittle them, but once this election is over, and if Doug Jones wins, Gloria Allred and the Democrats will drop them like a hot rock and their usefulness will have ended.

The attack is working, but Roy Moore will not lay down like most politicians. He will fight to the end. During his fight over the Ten Commandments statue, he had to be physically removed from office and I doubt he has changed. Moore’s stance eventually cost him his job.

How many politicians do you know who risked their careers for their beliefs?

Back to who the hell is Doug Jones anyway? I’m not going to bash Doug Jones, he seems like a normal person. But here is a fact you should be aware of. Doug Jones was a Bill Clinton appointee.

He will be a perfect sock-puppet for the Democrats if he wins in December. The first clue of he being a sock-puppet is in his campaign ad, were he says “healthcare is broken and we need to fix it.” Really? Your party broke it, and now you innocently want to fix it?

So the stage is set. Political sex slinging at its best, and it’s worst.

What’s at stake is a Senate seat which the GOP cannot afford to lose, but it looks like they might thanks to Mitch McConnell and idiots who comprise the jury in the court of public opinion.
