One of the cornerstones of our Republic is that one is “innocent until proven guilty” but it appears that the GOP powers that be adhere to a different standard, that being, one is “guilty until proven innocent.” Ironically, the concept of “guilty until proven innocent” is a cornerstone of dictatorships and Communist states not Democratic Republics so it seems that the GOP has a few things confused. I mean, after all, they are constantly talking about our “just” system and our “Republic” but I guess when it comes down to it all of their talk is just empty words.
What I’m referring to is the sexual allegations made yesterday against Judge Roy Moore who is running on the GOP ticket for the Senate in Alabama. More is the former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and you might remember him for his staunch stance on his refusal to remove the 10 Commandments from the Alabama Supreme Court building not so long ago. Moore is a staunch conservative, former prosecutor, and a proud Christian. And I suspect, strongly, that it is the last item I mentioned that has the GOP up in arms behind the scenes. After all, Christians seem to be taboo in our “anything goes no mattter how SICK it is” society!
A woman now in her 50s claims that Moore molested her when she was 14 and she says she kept it secret when he was running for other political offices in the past but now has decided to reveal it. I don’t know if her claims are true or not but I wonder why she didn’t reveal it before now and, frankly, I do not believe her story. However, the GOP leadership in the US Senate apparently believes her story as yesterday Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called upon Moore to exit the race if the allegations were true. And today he’s joined by Senator John McCain and other Republican Senators. My, my…..how quickly they’ve thrown Moore under the bus! I highly DOUBT the GOP will retain control of the Senate and Congress come the next election and, frankly, they deserve to lose control of both houses as the GOP has demonstrated more than once in the past 11 months that they are inept and incompetent. Let me tell you, the one that SHOULD resign and exit is MITCH MCCONNELL and John McCain should retire and deal with his health problems.
Judge Moore was quick to issue a statement saying, “These allegations are completely false and are a desperate POLITICAL ATTACK by the National Democratic Party and the Washington Post on (my) campaign.” I think he’s absolutely right, frankly. Moore does not fit into the establishment (aka: the Swamp) in DC. In fact, he’s a lose cannon like Trump is. And that’s why McConnell and McCain don’t want him in the US Senate. It’s because Moore would make waves and help to drain the swamp and cause McConnell’s and McCain’s little kingdom to fall. Moore is an “outsider” and Mitch and John want none of that!
One thing that has ALREADY become clear is just how inept the leadership is in Congress and the Senate. Not only the GOP leadership but also the Democratic leadership. BOTH parties are corrupt, incompetent, and inept. The GOP has clearly demonstrated their ineptness over the course of the past 11 months. They’ve FAILED to repeal Obamacare and now they are FAILING on the budget! They haven’t given President Trump one piece of major legislation even though they are supposedly on the same side. Republican Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, is clearly a RINO and is Mitch McConnell and McCain. In fact, it seems to me that these three are doing everything they can to ensure that Trump fails and that the GOP agenda goes nowhere.
People can make all of the allegations they want but they’d better have proof and thus far in this case I see no proof. What I hear are allegations against a man who has high standards and integrity. Yet, such allegations alone are enough to destroy a life and a career be they true or FALSE. What is even more shocking than the allegations is the response of McConnell and McCain. They wasted no time throwing Moore under the bus because they have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo in the Senate which is, by the way, DO NOTHING. And that’s exactly what they’ve done in the past 11 months. NOTHING!
BTW I want to mention something else. Have you seen the newest commercial for a turkey company celebrating Christmas and a family get together. Muslim women are in that commercial complete with the turkey and Christmas decorations. Why it’s all PC don’t ya know 🙂 Problem is MUSLIMS DO NOT CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS. Some thing just make you go….ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm……………..
Oh and one other thing. Yesterday Judge Roy Moore had this to say about Transgender rights:
““The transgenders don’t have rights,” Moore said at the press conference, where he received the endorsement of 13 Alabama sheriffs. “They’ve never been denominated as having rights by the U.S. Supreme Court. He (my opponent) believes in transgender bathrooms and transgenders in the military. I disagree with him 100 percent.” Moore has previously said trans people are mentally ill, in addition to his many homophobic stances.
