Here’s How Roy Moore Is Polling in the Alabama GOP Senate Primary

Roy Moore is back. He’s declared himself a candidate for the 2020 Republican Senate primary in Alabama for reasons only known to himself.

Moore was, of course, savaged in 2017 after forty-year-old allegations that he dated underage girls surfaced. Most of the allegations were more creepy than illegal (i.e. it’s not illegal for a 30-year-old to date a 17-year-old) but one involving a 14-year-old ended up being the biggest factor in his downfall. There was a later accusation of sexual assault that appeared at the behest of grifter lawyer Gloria Allred, but that one was best left out of the equation.

With Moore back on the scene, some conservatives lashed out at him for putting a solidly red seat in jeopardy once again. Those included the President’s son.

Now, we’ve got our first polling of the primary race and here’s how Moore is faring.

Moore is clocking in a distant 3rd with coaching legend Tommy Tuberville at the top. Needless to say, if Tuberville gets the nomination, he’s going to walk away from Doug Jones and win.

Bradly Byrne, a current Congressional Representative, will probably get a lot of establishment support. Arnold Mooney is currently a fringe candidate but has picked up some high profile endorsements from people like Mark Levin. The key here is that Mitch McConnell needs to not try to pick a winner by destroying other viable, conservative candidates. Stay out of it and you won’t end up with a Strange vs. Moore scenario again.

Here’s my opinion on this. Roy Moore is a clownish figure who constantly steps on his own feet and he has no business being the nominee at this point. While he may have done some good things as a judge in past decades, this Senate seat is not about him and he’s not entitled to it. The point is to win the election, not to make sure Roy Moore is given a chance at vengeance.

Alabama will have to decide for themselves, but with a tough Senate map in 2020, every seat counts. That means losing a Republican seat in deep red Alabama is simply not an option. For the moment, it looks like Alabama voters aren’t game for a do-over with Roy Moore and that’s probably a smart decision.

Troll Game Strong: ‘Cocaine Mitch’ Tweets Hilarious Advice for Democratic Senators in Advance of Tonight’s Debate

The next two days will be yuge for the 20+ Democrats who are running for president as the first round of pre-primary debates will be held tonight and tomorrow night in Miami.

Red State‘s Bonchie wrote earlier this week about how Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made it clear that votes on proposed legislation would not be delayed in spite of the fact that several Senators will be on the presidential debate stage. Per The Hill:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday dismissed a call by Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to delay passage of a mammoth defense bill until after the Democratic presidential debates so the entire chamber can vote on an Iran amendment.

McConnell, speaking from the Senate floor, brushed off the request from Schumer, saying Democrats missing the votes in order to take part in the Democratic presidential debates were prioritizing trying to win “the favor of the resistance.”

“I was incredulous to hear the Democratic leader call yesterday to postpone moving forward with the NDAA,” McConnell said, referring to the National Defense Authorization Act. “Apparently some of our Democratic friends need to go hit the presidential campaign trail. They can’t be here because they have to go campaign.”

As Bonchie noted in his post, McConnell’s decision to not delay votes was not just about needling the presidential candidates who were also members of the Senate but also because, you know, actual work needed to get done:

While Cocaine Mitch probably had sticking it to these do-nothing Democrats in the back of his mind, the truth is that remaining in session is absolutely crucial right now. They were already scheduled to be off the first week of July. While most of us get a single day off (and some no day off), Congress gets the entire week for some reason.

That means that there’s no way to take Thursday and Friday off, as working on immigration issues is vital right now. Trump agreed to a two-week delay in a major ICE deportation operation after Pelosi requested it. While a deal is unlikely, you can’t make an attempt at one if you take that entire two weeks off.

For good measure, though, the MccConnell campaign wished the candidates good luck and tweaked them with some pre-debate prep of their own:

As I’ve said before, Cocaine Mitch’s troll game is strong…

We Shouldn’t Be Doing Business with Communist China

We didn’t win the (first) Cold War with Communist Russia – by handing them trillions of dollars.

Embargoes and Sanctions – Cold War Sanctions:

“In 1948, the United States began a campaign of economic sanctions against the Soviet Union that would last more than fifty years….

“For many years, the embargo on the Soviet Union was quite severe….

“(R)estrictions were tightened again after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in December 1979. In 1983, Ronald Reagan approved the National Security Decision Directive 75, which set the policy of using economic pressure to limit the foreign policy and military options of the Soviets.”

In 1991, Communist Russia collapsed in an economically-ravaged heap.

And as important: Communist Russia spent the preceding half century limping around far less effectively – because we were denying them trillions of dollars of operating capital.

Contrast this – with how we’ve dealt with Communist China.

President Nixon Aimed to Establish a New Strategic Framework Built on Peaceful Relations with Beijing

And “peaceful relations” – meant trade.

Which meant in the name of fake “free trade” – we would ignore all sorts of Communist China’s abuses of us and the global market.

We were suddenly quite happy to abuse Chinese prisoners – put to slave labor by the regime to make cheap stuff for us to buy.

Exposed: Slave Labor and Torture in Communist China

Human rights?  Forget about it – I’m saving twenty dollars on this TV.

American workers won’t work for one (small) bowl of rice a day – so Amercian companies have spent the last half century-plus becoming de facto Chinese companies.  To avail themselves of Communist China’s slave labor.  Thereby handing Communist China trillions of dollars to which they never otherwise would have had access.

This isn’t even remotely close to free trade.

But that’s not all.  Communist China doesn’t just trade – Communist China steals and cheats.

China has spent the last five decades stealing trillions of dollars of our companies’ Intellectual Property (IP).   And in the name of fake “free trade” – our government has done nothing to defend our companies from this inconceivably huge heist.

This isn’t even remotely close to free trade.

China cheats – by floating its currency:

‘Dirty Float’: How China Manages its Currency:

“(I)t is controlled through central bank’s buying and selling currencies in a bid to cap its appreciation….

“Market analysts widely suggest that the yuan is held at a substantially undervalued level to make its exports more globally competitive.”

Which means China’s slave labor exports – are artificially rendered even cheaper on the global market.  Which is, again, titanically unfair to American companies manufacturing in America.  Further driving them to leave America and become de facto Chinese companies.  Thereby handing Communist China trillions of dollars to which they never otherwise would have had access.

This isn’t even remotely close to free trade.

But that’s not all.  To further rig the global market in their favor – Communist China subsidizes their slave labor exports.  Which artificially renders them even cheaper on the global market.  Which is, again, titanically unfair to American companies manufacturing in America.  Further driving them to leave America and become de facto Chinese Companies.  Thereby handing Communist China trillions of dollars to which they never otherwise would have had access.

This isn’t even remotely close to free trade.

And Communist China is doing all of this – not just to take from us trillions of dollars.  Communist China is doing this – to build up the ability to impose its Communist domination and will on the entirety of the planet.

But hey – at least the slave labor textbooks are cheap.

We shouldn’t be importing government manipulation from anyone.  We absolutely shouldn’t be doing so from Communist China.

And as with all things trade – this isn’t just about fake “free trade.”  This is also egregiously stupid national security policy.

China’s Bid to Control America’s Energy Resources:

“Beijing is deploying predatory trade practices to seize control of the means of production on a global scale….

“Now, China has set its sights on controlling America’s energy industry….

“Just as they dumped steel and aluminum, drywall and PC plastic pipe, the Chinese have been dumping drilling equipment in the U.S. at prices so low American manufacturers can’t compete….

“And it’s not just low-end pipe fixtures. Chinese imports now target the higher-end market for more specialized equipment.

“The supply chain crucial to American energy dominance is made up of scores of small, independent family-run businesses, and thousands of jobs. All of this is at risk.

“China circumvents…tariffs by transshipping their goods through India, South Korea and other countries. Imports of Indian and Korean couplings made from Chinese steel have increased threefold over the last two years….

“China is out to cripple our domestic oil drilling equipment industry the same way it has driven so many of our other industries to the brink of extinction.

“If it succeeds, China will have veto power over the energy essential to America’s economy and national security.”

We’re on the verge of wholly handing Communist China our domestic oil and gas infrastructure.

Which I’m sure China won’t shut down – or threaten to shut down – any time our government protests even slightly any of China’s very many anti-American-and-World actions.

But hey – I just saved four cents on a gallon of gas.

So it’s all good.

AOC and the Fresh Face Caucus Vote Against Aid for the Border After Grandstanding About It

This is how you know you Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley aren’t serious about their constant emotional appeals regarding the border. The “fresh faces” of the Democratic party are all about making Twitter rants and posing for glamour shots, but when it comes to actually helping solve the problem, they are there to work against those trying to fix the situation.

The aforementioned four were the only Democrats to vote against the Border Security funding bill that passed the House yesterday.

To be clear, this is not comparable to other votes against relief packages by Republicans and Democrats in the past. In those cases, and I’m struggling to find any examples otherwise, the bills themselves were laced with unrelated poison pills leading to protest votes.

In the case of this border funding package, there was no poison pill. In fact, it’s largely a cave by Republicans in terms of priorities and doesn’t even increase bed counts for CBP. The bill itself is only $4.5B and there are no unrelated amendments tacked on to make it untenable for a Democrat to vote for.

Even still, the fresh face caucus voted against it. Why?

Good luck getting an answer to that because the media won’t dare ask them, but it’s not hard to figure out. These people do not want a solution to what’s going on at the border. It gives them a political issue to bat around. When the cameras are on, they feign outrage and proclaim a humanitarian crisis. Then they go cry about Wayfair providing beds for children’s facilities and block funding for basic necessities.

Everyone knows you can’t just let people cross the border unchecked. How is letting unaccompanied minors wander the streets humane, for example? Reality dictates they must be detained and found safe situations to be sent to. Yet, these four Congressional members are calling for a total closing of the facilities housing them. What’s their actual plan? They don’t have one except to grandstand and post tone-deaf pictures of themselves crying at the border.

It’s just disgustingly manipulative and incredibly harmful for those actually needing resources at the border, whether we are talking about CBP or the illegal immigrants themselves.

Ever since Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) called her out last week on her absurd comparison of border detention facilities to Nazi concentration camps, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been on a revenge mission to get back at her Congressional colleague for having the audacity to set the record straight.

Cheney addressed AOC in three different tweets over the issue on Tuesday and Wednesday last week. Ocasio-Cortez has devoted significantly more time to not only waffling back and forth on her own position on the detention facilities, but also in trying to blame Cheney for making a comparison to the Holocaust that AOC claims she herself never made.

We all know Her Highness is just straight up lying here:

As it turns out, Cheney has had enough of Ocasio-Cortez’s liberal tears and governing-by-Twitter, and the Wyoming Congresswoman called her out yesterday both for her remarks on the detention centers, and for also how she treats her job:

“I think that any member who suggested, as she did, that the camps on the U.S. border are concentration camps deserves that,” Cheney told reporters Tuesday during a press conference when asked why she has been such a vocal critic of her fellow freshman lawmaker. “That’s a comment that is clearly ludicrous, clearly something that must be responded to,” she added.

[…]

“I think that you should be in a position where rather than launching attacks like that, which are clearly political on their face, clearly misinformed, we all ought to be working to try to help the crisis at the border, both the security and the humanitarian crisis at the border. And she and many of her colleagues have now prevented us from bringing the bill to the floor that would do that 17 times,” the House Republican Conference chairwoman said. “So I think it’s very important we focus on the fact that this is real Congress, this isn’t model Congress, we have real work to do and we ought to be getting it done.”

Watch Cheney speak on the issue below:

In other words, grow up, AOC.

John Brennan’s Thrown Together 2017 ICA Report on Russia Is Being Investigated

The 2017 ICA report, released in January of that year, has become a gospel edition to the Russian collusion narrative.

The supposedly unquestionable report was commissioned and led by then CIA Dir. John Brennan, a self-exposed political hack. You may know him from one of his many unhinged Twitter rants against Donald Trump. He also famously made this ridiculous claim, which blew up in his face just a week later.

The “report” was literally thrown together over a span of a month. It claimed to have substantiated every major liberal talking about about Donald Trump and Russia. Not only did it make accusations  that clearly lacked evidence at the time, it even proclaimed to know Putin’s motivations, i.e. that he definitely wanted to get Trump elected. What evidence was there for any of this? There was essentially none at the time and there’s still precious little today as well.

That’s not to say there was no “Russian interference” at all, but it is to say that many of the claims we hear as factual today still have little to no evidence behind them. That was especially true in early 2017 when this ICA report came out.

Now, AG Barr is investigating the genesis of not only the Steele dossier, but also that report, which has largely escaped scrutiny to this point. Julie Kelly shares that and other information in a new piece.

But that conclusion reportedly is under scrutiny by Attorney General William Barr as part of his wide-reaching investigation into the corrupt origins of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.

A special prosecutor appointed by Barr to oversee the probe is supposed to interview senior CIA officials who helped produce the report. According to a June 12 New York Times story disclosing the inquiry, the impending inquiry “has provoked anxiety in the ranks of the CIA.”

As Julie Kelly notes, Andrew McCarthy questioned the ICA at the time for very obvious reasons.

“To my mind the assessment is very peculiar,” former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy told the House Intelligence Committee earlier this month. “Ordinarily the kind of assessment that you’re talking about there would be something that would take well over a year to do, certainly many months to do . . . seems to me, in this instance, there was a rush to get that out within a matter of days.”

How did the Brennan led CIA and Obama administration go from saying Russian interference wasn’t going to happen right before the election to making grand proclamations of a tainted election in a matter of days? Simple, they threw together a bunch of unsubstantiated accusations that sounded good and shoved them out under official auspices.

This allowed the media to then run wild claiming that Trump was an illegitimate President.

With the pump primed, the next step in the game would be to brief the President on the Steele dossier while withholding key information about it’s credibly from him. Then a simple leak to CNN provided the hook for what would culminate into the mess that we are dealing with today.

The hastily prepared report is akin to a last-minute term paper, carefully formatted with plenty of white space and graphics. Odd anecdotes are stitched together in a hodgepodge manner. It’s filled with repetition and hearsay. One vague passage insists that Putin “holds a grudge for comments [by Clinton] he almost certainly saw as disparaging him.” Another factoid is that a Putin pal said Russia would “drink champagne” if Trump won. Not exactly the kind of conjecture that would pass muster in a court of law.

The document was released in declassified form; readers repeatedly are assured that highly-classified information supports the Intelligence Community’s conclusions but that “the release of such information would reveal sensitive sources or methods and imperil the ability to collect critical foreign intelligence in the future.” (Where have we heard that before?) It strained to make a connection between the Kremlin, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and the hacking of the Democratic National Committee.

In the end, there was no grand measure of evidence hiding behind those classified markings, as the Mueller report would make fairly clear. Even in regards to something as foundational as the DNC hack, Mueller would end up relying on the same 3rd party assessment by Crowdstrike, who were hired by the DNC after they refused to let the FBI examine the server.

While the media and Democrats spent years accusing anyone questioning the narrative of being a “conspiracy theorist,” the reality is that it was the government delving in conspiratorial thinking to shove out a rushed, clearly questionable report. The only reason to do that was to get ahead of Trump’s inauguration.

Hopefully, Barr’s investigation will look deeply at the motivations of figures like Brennan, Clapper, etc. and just how politically corrupt they were in getting their preferred narrative out there.

Robert Mueller Agrees to Testify in Open Session Before Congress

Westlake Legal Group nadler-e1355597245299 Robert Mueller Agrees to Testify in Open Session Before Congress testimony Special Counsel Russia Robert Mueller Rehash Politics Pointless partisan Nonsense Jerry Nadler Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress collusion adam schiff

Some late breaking news tonight.

Robert Mueller, after stonewalling for months, has agreed to testify in an open session of Congress about the special counsel investigation. This is likely in coordination with the DOJ and super-villain Bill Barr.

This per The Wall Street Journal.

WASHINGTON—Robert Mueller will testify in open session next month before a pair of House committees, in a victory for the Democratic leaders who had long sought his testimony in public.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D., N.Y.) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) said that the special counsel had agreed to testify in open session on July 17 pursuant to a subpoena.

Both of those committee’s are absolute clown shows, so expect there to be lots of stupid and gnashing of teeth.

It’s unlikely anything new will come from Mueller testifying, as he’s already said he won’t veer away from what’s already in the report itself. While Democrats will try their hardest to get him to deliver a smoking gun that somehow eluded us all this time, what’s more likely to happen is that Mueller will drop a few malleable insinuations like he did at his press conference. The media will go wild in one direction and Adam Schiff will rant on Twitter about moral evil. But the facts are already out there and they aren’t changing.

You can see the strategy that’s coming by reading Nadler’s statement on the matter.

“Americans have demanded to hear directly from the Special Counsel so they can understand what he and his team examined, uncovered, and determined about Russia’s attack on our democracy, the Trump campaign’s acceptance and use of that help, and President Trump and his associates’ obstruction of the investigation into that attack,” the lawmakers wrote in a statement.

Since the Trump campaign didn’t accept any foreign assistance, that line will probably be a dud. But hey, who’s keeping score at this point? This is going to be all rehashed nonsense, which is exactly the purpose of this charade.

Unfortunately for Democrats, all evidence says the American people have checked out on this. Nadler and Schiff can keep beating the dead horse but it’s going to stay dead.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has spent the last year proclaiming herself to be a champion of migrant women, children and families who are trying to cross the border. She’s compared border detention facilities to Nazi concentration camps and has declared without apology that she will continue to refuse the Trump administration’s request for supplemental funding that would help alleviate the humanitarian issues at the border.

But earlier today the freshman Congresswoman revealed a hypocrisy and duplicity on the border issue that is so stunning in nature that it almost takes your breath away.

Let’s take a trip back to her Twitter feed from just a few days ago, where she blasted the Trump administration for allegedly wanting to deprive illegal immigrant children on the border of toothpaste, soap, and adequate sleeping conditions:

Fast forward to today, when a group of Wayfair employees announced a walkout because the company was selling beds to the government to use for children in the detention centers:

Ocasio-Cortez, who just days ago threw firebombs over allegedly deplorable sleeping conditions for children at these detention centers, ENDORSED it:

To me, her jumping on board this campaign to deprive children on the border of beds to sleep on because Orange Man Bad pretty much wins the prize on the Evil Witch scale:

Others were quick to weigh in, including the Trump War Room:

I think this tweet sums it up best:

So she won’t give due consideration to a request for supplemental funding that would help alleviate some of the conditions she complains about, and she doesn’t want suppliers to sell beds to the government to use so children don’t have to sleep in the deplorable conditions she complains about.

Psst: Hey, mainstream media. Know what it’s time to do? It’s time for y’all to – at long last – CALL. HER. OUT.

“Cocaine Mitch” graphic. Image via Team Mitch.

About a month ago, Star Trek actor and liberal icon George Takei pounced to the Twitter machine to express his frustration with Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

Takei, who has made no secret of his disdain for the Trump administration and Republicans in general, posted this about the man who is proud to call himself “the Grim Reaper”:

The National Republican Senate Committee got wind of the tweet, and trolled Takei back in response at the time using this infamous gif of McConnell:

PJ Media‘s Nicholas Ballasy caught up with Takei and his husband Brad Altman at a recent event and asked if Takei had made up his mind on whether or not to officially challenge McConnell:

Following his participation in the American Library Association’s annual conference on Monday, PJM asked Takei if he is going to run for Senate, but event organizers interrupted the interview before Takei could respond. However, Takei’s husband Brad Altman later said the Star Trek actor is not going to enter the Senate race in Kentucky against McConnell.

“He’s not running,” Mr. Altman said. “We’re not planning on moving to Kentucky.”

Oh, darn it.

McConnell has earned the ire of Democrats like Takei and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA). Earlier this month, Pelosi displayed a chart during a press conference the mocked McConnell’s embrace of the “Grim Reaper” nickname. The Senator’s response to Pelosi’s stunt was priceless:

“She’s got it right,” McConnell said, referring to Pelosi. “She’s got it absolutely right. For the first time in my memory, I agree with Nancy Pelosi.”

“I am indeed the ‘Grim Reaper’ when it comes to the socialist agenda that they have been ginning up over the House with overwhelming Democratic support, and sending it over to America,” he added. “Things that would turn us into a country we have never been.”

Pelosi’s poster included a quote from McConnell, in which he called himself the “Grim Reaper” in regard to keeping some of the Democrats’ legislative priorities from reaching President Trump’s desk.

“None of those things are going to pass the Senate. they won’t even be voted on. So think of me as the Grim Reaper,” McConnell had said.

To date, McConnell has one 2020 primary challenger so far but no one on the Democratic side has formally declared. It was reported in March that Democrats were hoping to convince former Marine pilot Amy McGrath, a former House candidate, to challenge the longtime Senator.

While Democrats continue to hold up funding and keep CBP hostage as they attempt to handle the massive influx in illegal immigration, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is doing what’s really important.

Namely, she’s sharing glamour shots of herself from the border, some showing her head in her hand, others staring deeply into the camera.

Don’t kid yourself. These are completely staged and this photographer didn’t just happen to catch these on the fly. Noway do you get these kinds of posed shots, some with direct eye contact from close range, without AOC being aware. She was in on this. Notice that she is supposedly crying in a couple of shots yet there’s not a hint of a tear, red eye, or smudged makeup.

What exactly is she so upset by? We aren’t sure as all you see is a fence and a CBP patrol car. These were apparently taken in 2018 during the beginnings of the surge of migrant families. Due to the Flores Agreement, the Trump administration was hamstrung. They either had to allow unvetted, illegal immigrants to roam freely into the interior, or they had to put children in foster care after 20 days as cases were adjudicated. Eventually, after much misleading outcry in the media, Trump would back off his zero tolerance policy.

What AOC is doing here is just gross. It’s using the raw realities of illegal immigration, which requires detention (at least initially), as a stage to push staged pictures letting us know just how much she cares.

The truth is, her actions say she doesn’t care at all. She’s refusing to give CBP more beds, more funding, and more facilities in order to properly house these people. She won’t offer up any solutions at all. In fact, in all of her emotionally tinged, faux tweets she’s put out on this, she’s managed to not share a single idea on how to handle the situation.

This is a game to her and it’s why she’s such an awful politician, technically and morally.
