If only Mo Brooks had been nominated.

If the victory of Dave Brat over Eric Cantor was immigration patriotism’s biggest victory to date, the squeaker victory of Doug Jones over Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate is the Main Stream Media’s biggest victory since Donald Trump’s election. The MSM successfully created a fake issue to discredit Judge Moore, painting him not just as an extremist but as a “pedophile” based on absolutely no evidence. They provided cover for Leftist Doug Jones, allowing the Democrat nominee to pose as a moderate in conservative Alabama. And most importantly, they successfully broke up the white vote just enough that in the racial headcount that represent Southern (and increasingly American) elections, the usual monolithic black turnout was able to deliver the victory to Jones.

Ultimately, however, the Republican Establishment is to blame for Moore’s defeat. Rather than defending their candidate, they ran for cover following the early MSM attacks, thus emboldening the Democrats and encouraging them to pour in money and resources. A united front from day one would have prevented this from even being a contest. They have completely failed to learn the lesson of the 2016 campaign: courage Trumps cowardice.

Of course, a low-energy Roy Moore effort must also be faulted. President Trump ended the 2016 campaign with an almost inhuman feat of endurance, attending rally after rally in several states on the last day of the campaign. In contrast, Moore seemed not to campaign at all, actually leaving the state in the final days in order to visit his alma mater. [Where Roy Moore Has Gone In The Final Days Of The Alabama Special Election, by Benjamin Wallace-Wells, The New Yorker, December 12, 2017] He relied on subordinates who were easily outmatched on network television. [Roy Moore Spokesman Goes Blank After Jake Tapper Schools Him On The Constitution, by Carla Herreria, HuffingtonPost, December 12, 2017] And the Moore campaign constantly blundered from trap to trap, getting involved in an absurd controversy about having a “Jewish lawyer” on the last day of the campaign. [Comment about Jews by Roy Moore’s wife sparks new ridicule, by Kim Chandler, Associated Press, December 12, 2017]

This is especially unforgiveable given the available lines of attack against the Democrat nominee. On the very last day of the campaign, it was revealed Doug Jones was being backed to the tune of more than four million dollars by a super PAC aligned with the hated Democratic leadership [Secret super PAC backing Jones in Alabama exposed, by Gabriel Debenedetti, Politico, December 11, 2017]. Doug Jones outspent Roy Moore by an astonishing estimated ten-to-one margin [Alabama Preview: Turnout Will Win It for Moore or Jones, But Republicans Will Have a Headache Either Way, by Ed Kilgore, New York, December 11, 2017]. Moore could have turned this to his advantage, weaponizing Nancy Pelosi in the same way Karen Handel successfully did in an election in Georgia’s Sixth District against Jon Ossoff. Indeed, Moore could have been doing this the entire campaign.

Yet despite all of this incompetence, all of this apathy, and all of these mistakes, Moore came agonizingly close to winning—with practically the entire world against him.

But to say the Republican Establishment should have fought for their candidate from the beginning is to essentially say the Republican Establishment should act differently than how it have always acted. The GOP leadership didn’t want President Trump to win. There’s no reason to believe it ever wanted Moore to win—even if, with incredible irresponsibility. that meant losing its Senate majority.

“Populists” themselves also deserve some criticism, as “populism” has been divorced from any substantive agenda. Roy Moore talked about God, wore a cowboy hat, flashed a gun at a campaign rally, and rode a horse to go vote. Amusing as such antics are, it would have been better to have had a candidate who knew what DACA was. [Roy Moore, leading candidate in Alabama Senate race, doesn’t know what DACA is, by Philip Wegmann, Washington Examiner, September 1, 2017] While Donald Trump was often criticized for being “simplistic” compared to his opponent, it was actually candidate Trump who talked more about concrete issues during the presidential race compared to Hillary Clinton, who actually ran very few ads talking about policy. [Study: Hillary Clinton’s TV ads were almost entirely policy-free, by Jeff Stein, Vox, March 9, 2017]

If Moore had actually brought election back to policy, he would have won. According to the exit polls, fifty percent of voters wanted the Senate to be controlled by the Republican Party. A majority said Dough Jones does not share their values. And a majority also said abortion should be illegal in most or all cases. [Decision 2017 Alabama Results, NBC News, December 12, 2017]

Nonetheless, while Doug Jones (quietly) accepted money and help from Democrats around the country, Moore squandered much of his time and energy attacking Mitch McConnell instead of making the election about national issues.

For immigration patriots, the immediate consequences are ominous. Jones will be a reliable vote for an Amnesty/Immigration surge. Immigration patriot Jeff Sessions’s seat was given away so he could be Attorney General, where he has already run afoul of his chief for failing to stymie the farcical “Russia” investigation and failing to take investigate the alleged crimes of Hillary Clinton, which means he may well lose his position there. As Donald Trump himself predicted, the Patriotic Immigration Reform agenda could be stymied after this Democratic victory. [Trump: ‘If Alabama Elects Liberal Dem Doug Jones’ Pro-American Immigration Agenda ‘Will Be Stopped Cold,’ by John Binder, Breitbart, December 10, 2017].

But the deeper question: not what will happen to the Patriotic immigration Reform agenda going forward—but why nothing has happened already.

The only thing the “united Republican government” has to show for it is progress on a tax bill which no one even wants. There has been no movement on English as a national language, mandatory E-Verify, and taxing remittances to pay for the border wall, to name three easy legislative items.

Like Moore’s campaign, Trump’s “populism” in office has been largely stylistic. Twitter attacks on the media and the Democrats are amusing, but they do nothing to build the president’s coalition. Instead, they simply infuriate his enemies. Exit polls showed more people strongly disapproved of President Trump than strongly approved—a dangerous sign in Alabama.

It’s time for a change. The initial Republican Establishment reaction to this defeat, as was the case following President Obama’s 2012 re-election, will be to cave on DACA and try to pass an Amnesty over Christmas in the misguided hope that this will get the MSM/Democrats to lessen their hostility. But the MSM/Democrats will not be satisfied until President Trump is impeached and removed from office.

Once again, as after 2012, Immigration Patriots will be in the position of saving the Republican Party from itself. Any attempt at Amnesty must be firmly resisted. Instead, the Republican Party should shift to a substantive, rather than a simply stylistic, populist agenda. Infrastructure, popular immigration control measures, English as the Official Language and other popular programs could be pushed for political advantage. Paul Ryan’s wonkish Entitlement cuts should be avoided. The GOP needs to do what Moore never did–by forcing the Democrats into up or down votes on a series of popular items.

In crisis, there is opportunity. Moore’s defeat should galvanize the GOP (GAP) to steer a new course from its disastrous legislative effort thus far.

And while President Trump’s initial instinct may be to point (not unreasonably) to write-in saboteurs, he should also see this as opportunity to break away from his current rut and retake the offensive—not just on social networking, but on policy.

In Virginia, New Jersey, and now Alabama, it’s not that President Trump’s platform was tried and found wanting—it’s that it was ignored and never tried.

If the GOP wants to have any chance at keeping its majority, it needs to start reactivating its working-class National Conservative coalition with substance—not just a cliched style.

After all, George W. Bush used to wear a cowboy hat too.

    Helluva lot more than 10k. In AL Trump beat Clinton 1.3 million to 729 thousand votes. Jones had 671 thou to Moore's 650 thou. So basically nearly every Clinton voter showed up, but half of Trump's stayed home for the special election. This was about a lousy candidate who got shit smeared and did a bad job of defending himself.

    What is needed, is a mindset like Moore, who did not apologized for whatever the enemy throw at him. His lose was because the republic-rats did not assisted him, and traitors such as both Arizona senators and others became his enemies allied with the regular foes, and attacking and eating one of their own party. My question is: why are those bastards re-elected in AZ? oh the shame!

    At least ‘democracy’ has broken out in the Republican party. The Democrats have become nothing but a totalitarian machine where issues are not debated and only the gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity of voters are important.

    Unless Republicans kill off some of their Uniparty leaders from time to time, rank and file Democrats have no incentive to leave their party and vote as Republicans to have any voice in politics. As things stand now they vote for the same sort of cardboard figures the GOP has and let the lobbyists write the laws and the Deep State apparatchiks run the government.

  5. The Moore case, demonstrates how important media ownership really is. Its more important than elections themselves, because media can and does control who is to be elected.

    Media is a message transport technology. Public media is a system that delivers messages to the public. Unless access to the public media is both open, fully accessible to all(both in allowed access and in affordable access), on a fair basis, public media has been replaced with private media (privately owned media). In America fewer than seven entity persons own 92% of the public media.

    Psychology is a category of study that has developed much knowledge about people’s minds. This knowledge has been developed into a powerful set of skills, techniques and methods that a Psycho message designer can use to design messages that can control aspects of people’s minds. Messages designed using such principles can force, sway or induce people, without their awareness or knowledge, to conclude as instructed by the psycho designed message. As victims of this technology, the members of the audience will believe [something] because the mind control instructions (hidden in the message itself) tell them to; the audience will remember [something in a certain way] because the mind control instructions (hidden in the message itself) tells them to believe, remember and act as instructed by the message.
    The principles of psychology can be used to design message capable to make people think as the message was designed to make them think. Relevant here is that message designers can dictate to many members in whole societies, what their individual member voter preferences should be.
    These technologies are dangerous to democracies because they can be used to design messages, which messages can function to control the conclusions and develop and foster the understandings of the minds of those who are the audience to the message designed in accord to mind control methods. Mind control message design is more powerful than an atomic bomb, especially, that is true when 92% of all media worldwide is owned by fewer than 7 persons.
    Messages designed using mind control technology are able to impose the will of one person on the members of an entire society of people. Al Capone would have loved to have had such a technology. Publishing and repeatedly hammering home false, misleading, mind control, propaganda corrupted messages, designed to sway and control voter preference in elections means the end of democracy.

    " Psychology is a category of study that has developed much knowledge about people's minds"

    Pure nonsense, Psychology is a totally false, bogus pseudo-science, and it has developed no knowledge whatsoever about "peoples minds".

    The great tragedy being that Psychology is applied on a regular basis within the legal system and has been the cause of untold numbers of erroneous verdicts and has separated millions of fathers unjustly from their children after a contentious divorce.

  7. The UVA, Amsterdam University professor of Hungarian descent, Laslo Maracs, European studies, compares Deep State to a fungus, that grows through the whole of USA society.
    One cannot expect that the first election of a president from outside the establishment is enough to make that establishment powerless.
    Maracs explains the attitude of Trump and his political friends from the insight that eight years Obama have driven Russia and China so together, primarily economically, that the USA can no longer afford military control of its empire.

    In my view the present USA is comparable to the British empire in the first half of the 20th century, trying to maintain an empire, but economically no longer able to.
    The Berlin Baghdad railway may have unleashed WWI, let us hope that the Peking Petersburg railway does not unleash WWIII, the last one.
    Maracs is also professor in Khazakstan, where the dry railway port has been built, transferring containers from the Chinese railway system to the Russian.

The Globalist, psychopath, cheaters can be again caught with their narrative pants down. The day before the election the Alabama Supreme court okayed erasing all digital voting records right after the election. If that isn’t an evidence based smoking gun, I don’t know what is. The NSA easily can keep tabs on electronic voting results and irregularities. The internet is already displaying captured before and after images of vote changes for write-in’s.

As it stands now, Sheldon Adelson, Paul Singer and the Cheap Labor Faction in the GOP have a lock on the direction of immigration policy for the GOP.

    The GOP donors must be destroyed to save the nation. GOP politician puppet whores such as Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Marco Rubio are a dime a dozen. The GOP Donors are the enemy of the American people.

    Attention Peckerwood Patriots:

    Declare total war on Sheldon Adelson, Paul Singer and the GOP Cheap Labor Faction. Peckerwood Patriots must Cantorize every damn GOP politician whore who takes campaign bribes from Adelson, Singer or any portion of the GOP Cheap Labor Faction. The Southerners themselves must be proud to be a rebel by attacking the so-called “leaders” in the GOP ruling class. Civil War II or Hank III, who cares? Attack the GOP ruling class now!

    IMMIGRATION MORATORIUM NOW

    DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS NOW

    The luring of conservatives into the GOP's big tent was a huge fake out by the GOP. The patriots you described are roped in and kept under guard by the old Gang of Plunderers party leadership so that their conservative ideals can't interfere with the true party agenda. . There will probably never be any change whatsoever at the top of the party.

    One thing to remember is that the GOP politicians in office are not the leaders of the party. The leaders of the GOP are people whose names you'd never even recognize.

    Three takeaways:

    1. The Republican Establishment…… It is time to have a serious day of reckoning with those anti-American slime, starting with Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. Republican voters need to systematically put their money and their votes to primary challenges against every one of these sell outs, until they are gone gone gone.

    2. Let us review who owns the major media conglomerates in this country. As it now stands, roughly 70% of the citizens of America are baptized Christians ( I will leave to the judgement of God to decide how Christian) but Christian US citizens own almost 0% of the Media. This is clearly the result of illegal, discriminatory action, and we need to make that case, and shove it up the Democrats a$$es in no uncertain terms. The Democrats have been playing with fire for a long time now. It is time to burn them down with it.

    3. Moore was a dreadful candidate, and that isn’t hard to see. Even so, he lost by 20,000 votes, which probably just represents the dead voters among the urban sophisticates. Good Candidates =easy wins. I mean come on people, Trump, Moore? We need to, and can do, better than that.

    Paul Nehlen (b. 1969), who seems to be something as close as we've seen to an explicitly Alt-Right candidate, is again challenging Paul Ryan (b. 1970), after losing 84-16 to Ryan in the Aug 9, 2016 primary.

    Wiki's list of endorsements lists Ann Coulter as having endorsed Nehlen; for some reason, Donald Trump endorsed anti-Trump activist Paul Ryan in summer 2016 ahead of that primary.

    Paul Nehlen campaign platform:

    Unlike Paul Ryan, I pledge to:
    1. Uphold my Oath of Office.
    2. Make no Laws that don't apply to Congress or Admin officials.
    3. Build a Wall.
    4. Deport Illegals.
    5. Vote for National Reciprocity.
    6. Vote the Muslim Brotherhood a terror org.
    7. Vote for the Heartbeat Bill.
     
    And today, this from Ann Coulter:

    To James Kirkpatrick,
    You gave some really thoughtful writing here. A missed and enormously important concept was missed however.
    Sessions Alabama seat was made vacant by his appointment in Washington, this created a congressional run for his former position, the new administration and it's allies could for months set up a sophisticated and well planned sting operation, that is, a monitoring of voting machines and tabulation, so major election fraud could be proven in court. The Globalist, psychopath, cheaters can be again caught with their narrative pants down. The day before the election the Alabama Supreme court okayed erasing all digital voting records right after the election. If that isn't an evidence based smoking gun, I don't know what is. The NSA easily can keep tabs on electronic voting results and irregularities. The internet is already displaying captured before and after images of vote changes for write-in's. This is a great time to be alive!

    The day before the election the Alabama Supreme court okayed erasing all digital voting records right after the election.

    Indeed. There is NO INNOCENT EXPLANATION for this strange move, other than that someone was afraid of what those electronic records would show, and had the means to ensure that the Alabama Supremes would sweep it under the carpet.

    Subject: Fw: NYTimes.com: Why Black Voters Backed Doug Jones: ‘It’s a Matter of Character for Us’ (and where is the black story on Breitbart? )

    “According to CNN exit polling, 30 percent of the electorate was African-American, with 96 percent of them voting for Mr. Jones.”

    The jewyorktimes congratulates its armies of the night for figuring out how not to alarm white voters while contacting every single black voter in the state, “several times.”

    “… Mr. Jones’s campaign coffers grew fat, and in late November his campaign manager said the team would try to make contact — by mail, phone or otherwise — with every likely black voter five or six times before Election Day.”

    .

    “The campaign and its allies looked for ways to reach out to black voters without stirring up white Republicans.”

    the blacks talked about Character…like the character of their welfare money. And the Character of the average Democrat ‘s liberal Ideas about sex…more or less well defined by Woody Allen and the current crud crop of jews and White sewer rats. MLK..the Content of one’s character, indeed.

    Meanwhile, today anyway on Breitbart there is an article on 5 factors why Moore lost. Not one of the factors mentioned is the black vote. Nothing on WSJ either. see no evil, speak…hear, etc.

    Is Breitbart told to STFU by Trump and Bannon on telling the truth about the black vote?

    A Southerner friend of mine said that Moore is and was a lousy candidate anyway, for a variety of local reasons. Better off without him.

    I'm an outsider, so what do I know? But I think you highlight a crucial element in the success of the Dems and the failure of the Republicans in the Alabama election: "getting out the vote".

    I found the following this morning (by Al Giordano) at an interesting site, threadreaderapp.com:

    1.Just spoke with a source in the Mobile (AL) County NAACP. Here are some things that are happening today on the ground in Alabama that did not happen in the 2016 election. Thread:

    2. The state NAACP instructed its local branches to call every registered voter in the state who did not vote in 2016. The Lower Alabama chapter made it through the entire list successfully.
    3. A dozen paid canvassers have been going door to door in the Mobile area all week. That did not happen in 2016,
    4. What was last year an ad hoc effort by “a group of friends” to offer rides to the polls is today more than a dozen organizations doing rides-to-the-polls with resources for drivers.
    5. Once the Jones campaign had money it bought billboards in African-American neighborhoods with the election date and a quick blurb about Jones. This was not on highways but in places where one normally sees fast-food or cigarette ads.
    6. The Mobile NAACP crunched the numbers and showed local pastoral leadership that whatever they had done in recent years to turn out voters wasn’t working. The pastors then pushed for and got resources to do congregation-wide robo calls and voter reg tables at church events.
    7. At school alumni parties the local NAACP handed out several thousand flyers with election dates, registration deadlines, absentee deadlines, voter ID requirements. They also brought these paper reminders door to door in a canvass.
    8. Mobile is one of the redder counties in Alabama. Even larger efforts have done many of the same things in Montgomery, Huntsville, Birmingham and the so-called Black Belt since resources arrived in mid-November.
    9. Beyond the NAACP, there are many other black voter mobilization groups with boots on the ground in AL communities doing similar, extremely important work. One of them is The Ordinary People Society (TOPS). TOPS registered 5,000 in 22 jails and 10 prisons in the last two weeks!
    10. Note: These resources were provided by many of you. We raised $10,000+ here on Twitter in a single evening for the Jones campaign. Many others did the same with their networks. This thread shows how much of it was spent on field organizing.
    11. Nothing like these grassroots efforts happened in 2016 in Alabama. The people who have been doing them are feeling good today. They think they have a shot. And they’ll be working hard until polls close to make it so.
    12. These reports are also consistent with how the DNC spent money to win special elections in Virginia and other states. More money for field and GOTV. Less for TV ads. This is the @TomPerez era at work. End memo.

     

    What this reminds me of is the way in which, in the early 1990s, the British Labour Party under Tony Blair recovered from being a ramshackle, internally divided party and re-branded itself as "New Labour" - an organised, determined election-winning operation.

    It went on to govern from 1997 to 2010, despite policy disasters like the Iraq War and unprecedented increases in mass immigration. And it left the "Conservative" Party still to this day struggling to recover the reputation it once had as "the natural party of government".

    Even with a less complacent candidate than Roy Moore, the GOP in Alabama would have been threatened by what is beginning to look like a "resourced", efficient, determined electoral machine. They shouldn't assume that they will be opposed much longer by the incompetence of a Dem leader like Hillary "What happened?" Clinton.

    The GOP and President Trump badly need to get their act together, starting yesterday.

    Helluva lot more than 10k. In AL Trump beat Clinton 1.3 million to 729 thousand votes. Jones had 671 thou to Moore's 650 thou. So basically nearly every Clinton voter showed up, but half of Trump's stayed home for the special election. This was about a lousy candidate who got shit smeared and did a bad job of defending himself.

  37. To me, this was an election between Roy Moore vs “not Roy Moore.” On the election day, I was streaming the Jake Tapper segment with Tom Crockett where the latter did not realize there was no law governing what piece of literature you one can swear on but it was at the time just background noise for me. But damn, hilarious stuff on replay.

    The real funny thing is, CNN first showed Doug Jones (I don’t recall anything on him previously) speak at his victory press conference the day after. And you know what…I was pretty impressed (or content, being the whatever centrist person I am) with the way he handled it. Seems Alabama elected themselves a decent representative. So there, hopefully a happy ending to 2017, and a continued hope for the American Republic.

    At least 'democracy' has broken out in the Republican party. The Democrats have become nothing but a totalitarian machine where issues are not debated and only the gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity of voters are important.

    Unless Republicans kill off some of their Uniparty leaders from time to time, rank and file Democrats have no incentive to leave their party and vote as Republicans to have any voice in politics. As things stand now they vote for the same sort of cardboard figures the GOP has and let the lobbyists write the laws and the Deep State apparatchiks run the government.

    “Unless Republicans kill off some of their Uniparty leaders from time to time, rank and file Democrats have no incentive to leave their party and vote as Republicans to have any voice in politics.”

    The Moore case, demonstrates how important media ownership really is. Its more important than elections themselves, because media can and does control who is to be elected.

    Media is a message transport technology. Public media is a system that delivers messages to the public. Unless access to the public media is both open, fully accessible to all(both in allowed access and in affordable access), on a fair basis, public media has been replaced with private media (privately owned media). In America fewer than seven entity persons own 92% of the public media.

    Psychology is a category of study that has developed much knowledge about people's minds. This knowledge has been developed into a powerful set of skills, techniques and methods that a Psycho message designer can use to design messages that can control aspects of people's minds. Messages designed using such principles can force, sway or induce people, without their awareness or knowledge, to conclude as instructed by the psycho designed message. As victims of this technology, the members of the audience will believe [something] because the mind control instructions (hidden in the message itself) tell them to; the audience will remember [something in a certain way] because the mind control instructions (hidden in the message itself) tells them to believe, remember and act as instructed by the message.
    The principles of psychology can be used to design message capable to make people think as the message was designed to make them think. Relevant here is that message designers can dictate to many members in whole societies, what their individual member voter preferences should be.
    These technologies are dangerous to democracies because they can be used to design messages, which messages can function to control the conclusions and develop and foster the understandings of the minds of those who are the audience to the message designed in accord to mind control methods. Mind control message design is more powerful than an atomic bomb, especially, that is true when 92% of all media worldwide is owned by fewer than 7 persons.
    Messages designed using mind control technology are able to impose the will of one person on the members of an entire society of people. Al Capone would have loved to have had such a technology. Publishing and repeatedly hammering home false, misleading, mind control, propaganda corrupted messages, designed to sway and control voter preference in elections means the end of democracy.

    ” Psychology is a category of study that has developed much knowledge about people’s minds”

    Pure nonsense, Psychology is a totally false, bogus pseudo-science, and it has developed no knowledge whatsoever about “peoples minds”.

    The great tragedy being that Psychology is applied on a regular basis within the legal system and has been the cause of untold numbers of erroneous verdicts and has separated millions of fathers unjustly from their children after a contentious divorce.

    Three takeaways:

    1. The Republican Establishment...... It is time to have a serious day of reckoning with those anti-American slime, starting with Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. Republican voters need to systematically put their money and their votes to primary challenges against every one of these sell outs, until they are gone gone gone.



    2. Let us review who owns the major media conglomerates in this country. As it now stands, roughly 70% of the citizens of America are baptized Christians ( I will leave to the judgement of God to decide how Christian) but Christian US citizens own almost 0% of the Media. This is clearly the result of illegal, discriminatory action, and we need to make that case, and shove it up the Democrats a$$es in no uncertain terms. The Democrats have been playing with fire for a long time now. It is time to burn them down with it.

    3. Moore was a dreadful candidate, and that isn't hard to see. Even so, he lost by 20,000 votes, which probably just represents the dead voters among the urban sophisticates. Good Candidates =easy wins. I mean come on people, Trump, Moore? We need to, and can do, better than that.

    It is time to have a serious day of reckoning with those anti-American slime, starting with Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. Republican voters need to systematically put their money and their votes to primary challenges

    Paul Nehlen (b. 1969), who seems to be something as close as we’ve seen to an explicitly Alt-Right candidate, is again challenging Paul Ryan (b. 1970), after losing 84-16 to Ryan in the Aug 9, 2016 primary.

    Wiki’s list of endorsements lists Ann Coulter as having endorsed Nehlen; for some reason, Donald Trump endorsed anti-Trump activist Paul Ryan in summer 2016 ahead of that primary.

    Paul Nehlen campaign platform:

    Unlike Paul Ryan, I pledge to:
    1. Uphold my Oath of Office.
    2. Make no Laws that don’t apply to Congress or Admin officials.
    3. Build a Wall.
    4. Deport Illegals.
    5. Vote for National Reciprocity.
    6. Vote the Muslim Brotherhood a terror org.
    7. Vote for the Heartbeat Bill.

    And today, this from Ann Coulter:

    Whataboutism. What does that matter? Is Elvis running for office today? Obviously standards on social issues have changed over recent decades.

    Moore is a creep and a theocrat. How deluded can a person be to assume that that many women are making up stories about him? Sometimes the most simple explanation is what really happened. It’s not a giant FakeNewsEvilDems conspiracy.

I hear he butchers tunes, takes notes out and so on. Arrogance. black arrogance.

    I Mostly classical however and there is so much stupid jazz around…the noodle type, most of which I hear on SF bay area KCSM. Only a couple good DJs there including Michael Berman, Jew I guess but he is the best from my point of hearing.

    yet, even the WSJ…? maybe it is just considered impolite, or gauche, or somehow threatening to be followed by the Jew word.

    I don’t think the “rape allegations” were seriously considered, but the fact he dated 16 and 17 year olds when he was in his 30s probably turned a lot of people off. As far as I know, he did not deny dating them. Makes no difference if it was legal.

    To me, this was an election between Roy Moore vs "not Roy Moore." On the election day, I was streaming the Jake Tapper segment with Tom Crockett where the latter did not realize there was no law governing what piece of literature you one can swear on but it was at the time just background noise for me. But damn, hilarious stuff on replay.

    The real funny thing is, CNN first showed Doug Jones (I don't recall anything on him previously) speak at his victory press conference the day after. And you know what...I was pretty impressed (or content, being the whatever centrist person I am) with the way he handled it. Seems Alabama elected themselves a decent representative. So there, hopefully a happy ending to 2017, and a continued hope for the American Republic.

    Jones will go right to work for the vested interests of the armament and military industries protecting their lavish budget.

    Pure nonsense, Psychology is a totally false, bogus pseudo-science, and it has developed no knowledge whatsoever about "peoples minds".

    The great tragedy being that Psychology is applied on a regular basis within the legal system and has been the cause of untold numbers of erroneous verdicts and has separated millions of fathers unjustly from their children after a contentious divorce.

    Subject: Fw: NYTimes.com: Why Black Voters Backed Doug Jones: ‘It’s a Matter of Character for Us’ (and where is the black story on Breitbart? )

    "According to CNN exit polling, 30 percent of the electorate was African-American, with 96 percent of them voting for Mr. Jones."

    The jewyorktimes congratulates its armies of the night for figuring out how not to alarm white voters while contacting every single black voter in the state, "several times."

    "... Mr. Jones’s campaign coffers grew fat, and in late November his campaign manager said the team would try to make contact — by mail, phone or otherwise — with every likely black voter five or six times before Election Day."

    .

    "The campaign and its allies looked for ways to reach out to black voters without stirring up white Republicans."

    the blacks talked about Character...like the character of their welfare money. And the Character of the average Democrat 's liberal Ideas about sex...more or less well defined by Woody Allen and the current crud crop of jews and White sewer rats. MLK..the Content of one's character, indeed.

    Meanwhile, today anyway on Breitbart there is an article on 5 factors why Moore lost. Not one of the factors mentioned is the black vote. Nothing on WSJ either. see no evil, speak...hear, etc.

    Is Breitbart told to STFU by Trump and Bannon on telling the truth about the black vote?

    A Southerner friend of mine said that Moore is and was a lousy candidate anyway, for a variety of local reasons. Better off without him.
    Get Stirred Up. You may not be interested in civil war but civil war is interested in you...White girls and boys,,,and goys.

    The jewyorktimes congratulates its armies of the night for figuring out how not to alarm white voters while contacting every single black voter in the state, “several times.”
    “… Mr. Jones’s campaign coffers grew fat, and in late November his campaign manager said the team would try to make contact — by mail, phone or otherwise — with every likely black voter five or six times before Election Day.”
    .
    “The campaign and its allies looked for ways to reach out to black voters without stirring up white Republicans.”

    I’m an outsider, so what do I know? But I think you highlight a crucial element in the success of the Dems and the failure of the Republicans in the Alabama election: “getting out the vote”.

    I found the following this morning (by Al Giordano) at an interesting site, threadreaderapp.com:

    1.Just spoke with a source in the Mobile (AL) County NAACP. Here are some things that are happening today on the ground in Alabama that did not happen in the 2016 election. Thread:

    2. The state NAACP instructed its local branches to call every registered voter in the state who did not vote in 2016. The Lower Alabama chapter made it through the entire list successfully.
    3. A dozen paid canvassers have been going door to door in the Mobile area all week. That did not happen in 2016,
    4. What was last year an ad hoc effort by “a group of friends” to offer rides to the polls is today more than a dozen organizations doing rides-to-the-polls with resources for drivers.
    5. Once the Jones campaign had money it bought billboards in African-American neighborhoods with the election date and a quick blurb about Jones. This was not on highways but in places where one normally sees fast-food or cigarette ads.
    6. The Mobile NAACP crunched the numbers and showed local pastoral leadership that whatever they had done in recent years to turn out voters wasn’t working. The pastors then pushed for and got resources to do congregation-wide robo calls and voter reg tables at church events.
    7. At school alumni parties the local NAACP handed out several thousand flyers with election dates, registration deadlines, absentee deadlines, voter ID requirements. They also brought these paper reminders door to door in a canvass.
    8. Mobile is one of the redder counties in Alabama. Even larger efforts have done many of the same things in Montgomery, Huntsville, Birmingham and the so-called Black Belt since resources arrived in mid-November.
    9. Beyond the NAACP, there are many other black voter mobilization groups with boots on the ground in AL communities doing similar, extremely important work. One of them is The Ordinary People Society (TOPS). TOPS registered 5,000 in 22 jails and 10 prisons in the last two weeks!
    10. Note: These resources were provided by many of you. We raised $10,000+ here on Twitter in a single evening for the Jones campaign. Many others did the same with their networks. This thread shows how much of it was spent on field organizing.
    11. Nothing like these grassroots efforts happened in 2016 in Alabama. The people who have been doing them are feeling good today. They think they have a shot. And they’ll be working hard until polls close to make it so.
    12. These reports are also consistent with how the DNC spent money to win special elections in Virginia and other states. More money for field and GOTV. Less for TV ads. This is the @TomPerez era at work. End memo.

    What this reminds me of is the way in which, in the early 1990s, the British Labour Party under Tony Blair recovered from being a ramshackle, internally divided party and re-branded itself as “New Labour” – an organised, determined election-winning operation.

    It went on to govern from 1997 to 2010, despite policy disasters like the Iraq War and unprecedented increases in mass immigration. And it left the “Conservative” Party still to this day struggling to recover the reputation it once had as “the natural party of government”.

    Even with a less complacent candidate than Roy Moore, the GOP in Alabama would have been threatened by what is beginning to look like a “resourced”, efficient, determined electoral machine. They shouldn’t assume that they will be opposed much longer by the incompetence of a Dem leader like Hillary “What happened?” Clinton.

    The GOP and President Trump badly need to get their act together, starting yesterday.

    You seem to be trying to ram a square peg into a round hole. Almost everyone purged has been a Jew, black, homo, or leftist. Moore stands out in stark contrast. And again, if the GOP cucks had mounted a defense, Moore would probably have won.

    Immigration is important. But trillion $$ tax cuts for the 5% is where the rubber meets the road. The majority of GOP voters will not benefit from Mr Trump’s tax sleight of hand, any more than they do from the imported infinite bottomless labour pool.

    Everybody keeps saying this, but they never give any evidence.

    Helluva lot more than 10k. In AL Trump beat Clinton 1.3 million to 729 thousand votes. Jones had 671 thou to Moore’s 650 thou. So basically nearly every Clinton voter showed up, but half of Trump’s stayed home for the special election. This was about a lousy candidate who got shit smeared and did a bad job of defending himself.

    I bet a GOP strategy other than cucking would’ve been worth 21k votes, too.

    “Unless Republicans kill off some of their Uniparty leaders from time to time, rank and file Democrats have no incentive to leave their party and vote as Republicans to have any voice in politics.”

    Kill off, as in murder, right? And your proposal is in what specific ways legal and moral?

    What is needed, is a mindset like Moore, who did not apologized for whatever the enemy throw at him. His lose was because the republic-rats did not assisted him, and traitors such as both Arizona senators and others became his enemies allied with the regular foes, and attacking and eating one of their own party.

  63. One of the keys to Trump success was avoiding the culture wars and focusing on trade and immigration. Along comes this guy Moore who does the exact opposite – wade chest high into the culture wars and ignore trade and immigration. If Patrick Buchanan couldn’t win the culture wars in 1992 why the hell does this glass house dweller think he can do better in 2017?

    The takeaway going forward is avoid unnecessary cultural issues wherever possible and focus on America First issues like trade and immigration. The populist/nationalist right doesn’t have the resources to fight the liberal establishment on all fronts, and must focus on issues where it has the strongest appeal.

  64. I believe this Moore loss shows the confusion or perhaps hypocricy of GOP voters on the topic of abortion/gay marriage. In a state that went 60/40 for Trump, and that votes heavily on social issues, this race should have been an easy Moore win. And to all of those saying, “You would have elected a pedophile,” there was a good probability that the Senate would have removed Moore and re-run that race.

    Laura Ingram, Ann Coulter, among many others made excuses for what happened to Moore, saying it’s about McConnell or not having enough money/support. I do agree there could have been better support but the truth is that there is no excuse. White voters either didn’t turn out for Moore or voted against him. If the voters actually believed abortion/gay marriage/transgender rights were “non negotiable” issues, they would have showed up in droves to show Doug Jones the door.

    People get caught up in the character of the person on the ticket, but at the end of the day its about the policies of the candidate. So much for “Abortion is murder” when you can’t be bothered to show up and vote against a man who backs partial birth abortion. These issues are supposed to be moral absolutes for the GOP, that transcend tax policy, and other “negotiable issues.”

    If we are not going to stand firm on these issues we might as well not even have them in the party platform anymore. The only way we win elections is when everybody is on the same page. On Tuesday, we were shown by the most conservative voters in the country that these issues are not moral absolutes, and that Moore’s alleged criminal behavior took precedence over moral government policy.

    I look at this through pure, cold, utilitarian ethics. Regardless of what horrible acts Moore might have done to those girls, what Dough Jones and people like him want to do to this country is thousands of times worse and will impact the lives of millions of people for generation upon generation to come.

    I don't think any of the women accused Moore of raping them.

    no where have I mentioned rape in any of my comments. but sleeping with 14-16 year olds still makes him an old perverted pedophile.

    a perverted middle age old fart, now a perverted 70 old pedophile, you want him to be a senator?

    OMG! where have you been, under a rock? or somewhere in the Brazilian jungle?. Congress is full of perverts, and some of them are leaving congress in a hurry now. Al Franken, John Conyers, just to name two. So your argument is, well, hallow as far as Senators virtuosity.

    so? what is your point? both of those resigned. and you mofos want to elect the exact same kind to the senate?

    The UVA, Amsterdam University professor of Hungarian descent, Laslo Maracs, European studies, compares Deep State to a fungus, that grows through the whole of USA society.
    One cannot expect that the first election of a president from outside the establishment is enough to make that establishment powerless.
    Maracs explains the attitude of Trump and his political friends from the insight that eight years Obama have driven Russia and China so together, primarily economically, that the USA can no longer afford military control of its empire.

    In my view the present USA is comparable to the British empire in the first half of the 20th century, trying to maintain an empire, but economically no longer able to.
    The Berlin Baghdad railway may have unleashed WWI, let us hope that the Peking Petersburg railway does not unleash WWIII, the last one.
    Maracs is also professor in Khazakstan, where the dry railway port has been built, transferring containers from the Chinese railway system to the Russian.

    You could argue that Roy Moore was low energy, not the most ideal candidate and didn’t run a solid campaign, but he still would have won if GOPe didn’t attack and undermine him 24/7. He would have supported the Trump agenda more than McConnell’s boy Luther Strange, who was a chamber of commerce, amnesty supporting RINO.

    If Doug Jones was being attacked by his own party and was battling allegations of molesting teenage black girls we know how that would gave gone over with the black population of Alabama and they would have stayed away from the polls and handed the election to the Republican.

    Moore only lost by 1% of the vote which is pretty amazing when he hardly campaigned and was attacked by leading members of your own party. Luther Stranger supporters obviously boycotted the election.

    Doug Jones is just the left’s Scott Brown story. Brown pulled a stunning Senate upset in 2009 in deep blue Massachusetts, but lost handily in 2014. Jones will likely get shellacked in 2020, but it will be of little consolation since Kamala Harris will defeat Trump in the presidential race.

    Bannon's war against the GOP establishment is bearing fruit. Soon the GOP establishment will lose control of the Senate.

    GOPe has been at war with its center-right base for a long time, so I can’t fault Bannon for waging war against them especially since they are trying to undermine and thwart Trump on immigration.

    " IQ was developed ans named by psychologists"

    The concept of "IQ" has absolutely nothing to do with the erroneous and harmful psychological concepts of "mental disorders" and "therapy", and these are the areas in which they, psychologists, cause the most damage and are totally off base.

    The concept of " IQ" could have been developed by numerous other individuals other than psychologists, as it has basically no relationship to the entire bogus field of psychology, specifically the damaging field of "mental disorders" and "therapy", and the people who worked on the original concepts of "IQ" were most certainly not applying the erroneous psychological concepts of "mental disorders" and "therapy" to the specific area of : "IQ" research.

    “presumption of innocence” is kinda laughable in this case. last I checked, 8+ women have now accused him of having sex with them when they were 14-16 years old. yes, back in the 70s, it is legal, hell it is still legal in some of the states where you can marry a 16 year old with parental consent. but that is a middle age pedophile (back in the 70s, 30-35 is middle age :) ) actively seeking out underage teens for sex.

    legal or not, you want a pedophile to be a senator of your state? come the fuck on.

    a perverted middle age old fart, now a perverted 70 old pedophile, you want him to be a senator?

    …you want a pedophile to be a senator of your state?

    No.
    Now here’s one for you:
    If you were accused of something illegal, would you want a fair trial?
    A yes or no answer is acceptable.

    There is no purge. It is a figment of your imagination. A white male won the election in Alabama.
     
    It won't be an electoral purge, it will be bureaucratic and judicial. A white male won in Alabama, but Al Franken's appointed replacement is a female...

He attends the Army/Navy game and does the Bannon event. He never once leaves his comfort zone and campaigns in the suburbs. He never made it about policy.

    The rural White Southerner Peckerwood Patriots who are the real base of the GOP must declare war on the ruling class of the GOP. If the Peckerwood Patriots were to do this then there might be a change at the top of the GOP. As it stands now, Sheldon Adelson, Paul Singer and the Cheap Labor Faction in the GOP have a lock on the direction of immigration policy for the GOP.

    The GOP donors must be destroyed to save the nation. GOP politician puppet whores such as Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Marco Rubio are a dime a dozen. The GOP Donors are the enemy of the American people.

    Attention Peckerwood Patriots:

    Declare total war on Sheldon Adelson, Paul Singer and the GOP Cheap Labor Faction. Peckerwood Patriots must Cantorize every damn GOP politician whore who takes campaign bribes from Adelson, Singer or any portion of the GOP Cheap Labor Faction. The Southerners themselves must be proud to be a rebel by attacking the so-called "leaders" in the GOP ruling class. Civil War II or Hank III, who cares? Attack the GOP ruling class now!

    IMMIGRATION MORATORIUM NOW

    DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS NOW

    The luring of conservatives into the GOP’s big tent was a huge fake out by the GOP. The patriots you described are roped in and kept under guard by the old Gang of Plunderers party leadership so that their conservative ideals can’t interfere with the true party agenda. . There will probably never be any change whatsoever at the top of the party.

    One thing to remember is that the GOP politicians in office are not the leaders of the party. The leaders of the GOP are people whose names you’d never even recognize.

    Only one case I did not like. When (according to accuser) he was giving lift to her home he was feeling her out.
