Dear America: An apology for Roy Moore, and all the rest

November 13, 2017

Dear America,

We’re sorry.

I’m speaking for all of us here in Alabama, even if some of these people will never apologize and never believe that they’ve done anything wrong.

The rest of us know better, though.

We know what we’ve done to all of America over the past year, when the Alabamization of this country began. You weren’t ready for it, and I told you last November that no amount of lowering expectations could possibly prepare you for the river of lunacy that was rushing towards you.

The same men quick to judge Bentley rush to Roy Moore’s defense

November 13, 2017

By Chip Brownlee
Alabama Political Reporter

The allegations facing U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore are not Alabama’s first experience with alleged sexual improprieties among the state’s top brass. The reaction, however, is much different from the two men who led the charge against former Gov. Robert Bentley when he was accused of having an affair with a top adviser.

On Thursday, hours after the Washington Post’s bombshell article published, accusing Moore of sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old girl in 1979, State Auditor Jim Zeigler spoke with the Washington Examiner, invoking Jesus and the Bible in defense of Moore.

I believe Judge Roy Moore

I prefer the grind of every day reporting to sharing my opinions with the readers. I let Bill, Josh and Joey focus on the opinion writing, which they do so well. This time I will make an exception. We are now in the start of the third day of a carefully orchestrated character assassination of the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate, Judge Roy Moore.

There is no bottom for Roy Moore Republicans

November 10, 2017

By Josh Moon

Maybe there is no rock bottom for the Alabama Republican Party.

Maybe it’s just that mushy mud that you find on the bottom of the Tennessee River, and the ALGOP just keeps burrowing deeper and deeper into the muck and filth.

Thursday brought on a new bout of digging, with a familiar face behind the shovel.

Roy Moore. The ever-constant posterboy for what is wrong in Alabama politics.

Stalnaker tells Republican women to stop spreading fake news

November 1, 2017

By Brandon Moseley
Alabama Political Reporter

Friday, Oct. 27, 2017 Republican strategist Angie Horn Stalnaker told the Alabama Federation of Republican Women that conservatives lose credibility when they share fake news in their social media, speeches and conversations.

“Fake news is not a story you do not like. It is not an op ed you don’t like. The uncomfortable news is that we, as southern women, we created fake news. We call it gossip. Fake news is simply something that is not true. In the word of social media fake news has taken off. It was conservatives who created, popularized and spread fake news on the internet,” Stalnaker said.

Here comes the judge

October 4, 2017

Inside the Statehouse
By Steve Flowers

Judge Roy Moore and his wife, Kayla, made their traditional horseback ride to their voting place in Gallant in Etowah County, last Tuesday and when all the votes were counted that night, they won a resounding victory. Moore’s capture of the GOP Senate nomination was impressive. A 55-45 margin is not a total trouncing, but is considered a landslide.

Despite being outspent by the Washington establishment 15-to-1, Moore prevailed. His solid bloc of conservative evangelical voters stood strong against an avalanche of negative ads.

Thursday, August, 31, 2017, the Washington Free Beacon’s Joe Schoffstall is reporting that the Montgomery based Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt “charitable” organization, has transferred millions of dollars in cash to foreign accounts in the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands and Bermuda.

According to the research done by Joe Schoffstall, the SPLC recorded more than $50 million in contributions and $328 million in net assets on its 2015 Form 990, the most recently available tax form from the nonprofit. SPLC’s Form 990-T, its 2015 business income tax return, shows that they have “financial interests” in the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, and Bermuda and 2014 forms reveal some of the SPLC’s transfers to foreign entities, including hundreds of thousands to an account in the Cayman Islands. SPLC also lists Tiger Global Management LLC, a New York-based private equity financial firm, as an agent. There is a foreign partnership between the SPLC and Tiger Global Private Investment Partners IX, L.P., a pooled investment fund in the Cayman Islands and SPLC transferred $960,000 in cash on Nov. 24, 2014 to the fund, along with additional cash transactions to offshore funds.

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017, former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore held a press conference at the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery to announce the members of his national security coalition and to speak about his vision for protecting our nation and supporting the military if elected as the next US Senator from Alabama.

Flanked by veterans and supporters Judge Roy Moore said, “I’ve had the honor of wearing our uniform and am the only candidate who has served in a combat zone, but it is double honor that these men and women who also served are standing here today to help us launch our national security coalition. If we don’t commit ourselves to national security, no other issue will matter. The leaders of this coalition know this and will be helping us to organize our veterans support network in every county in Alabama.”

Alabama Political Reporter

Thursday, November 22, 2017, former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore (R) said that he supports the full repeal of Obamacare and suggested that the Senate healthcare plan released on Thursday is an “in name only” repeal of the controversial 2010 healthcare bill.

Chief Justice Moore said in a statement, “As I stated over a month ago, I will oppose any bill that does not fully repeal Obamacare. We knew from day one that the concept of Obamacare was doomed to fail just as socialized medicine has failed in every country where it has been implemented.”
