I pray that Roy and Steve Brannon sue these women, and bring light to the swamp dwellers who got these women to prostitute themselves for the money they got. What these women got was flirty lurker and it is going to rot in their pockets.

Just a bad candidate, easy to find fault with him personally. The press, especially WAPO, needs to be vetted for fake news. 40 years, really! 30 days before the election.

The Lord holds the keys to this whole scenario. All of this needs to be held up in prayer. Roy Moore is no animal but he has to understand “salvation by grace alone” (sola gratia) does not mean “salvation by keeping the law”, (which is apparently his view of Christianity based on his 10 Commandment event) and overriding of an errant Supreme Court decision based on “psychology” and not science. The law is the law and conscience is conscience, which one has precedence? The law, that which is codified legally. The “virtue” and “righteousness” of the peoples of the UnUnited States of America is necessary for the Republican-Democracy that was created by its Constitution, to provide “freedom”, “justice”, and the ability to pursue “happiness”, in a land filled with “sin”, “sinners”, and “blood” on its hands. Killing unborn babies is “murder” and giving “special legal rights” to psychologically identified gender is not “honest”, “virtuous”, “just”, and “fair”. Individuals who are elected to office should not be qualified based on “political” savvy or “public opinion” but on the rules for service. Those who run for office under the guise of being qualified by holding previous office is ridiculous, it leads them to believe that they should hold power over others and that they are better educated. Power and money is corrupting. “The love of money is the root of all evil”. A person should be qualified based on their desire and ability to improve government, investigate, arrest, restrain and prosecute corruption, while protecting the peoples from “evil”. Individuals should not desire to become leaders in government for the money, power, and benefits. “Taxation without representation” was the motto of the Revolution. We the people, need to stand by the Constitution and demand that leaders are “FOR THE PEOPLE” and “BY THE PEOPLE”. What we have now is all kinds of people who are “illegal” and “un-assimilating”, even hateful of the Constitutional government, in our population that are taking advantage of our system in order to change the Constitution, not by amendments, but by “overthrow” of the government. This includes some who were born here in the USA. Though Roy Moore may have lost the election and some say its his own fault, or people point the finger at others that may or may not have done something wrong, influencing the election, the Lord has His purposes and is in control, and that to His glory, soli Deo gloria. And yes, He’s a “jealous” God and will not share His glory with any creature…He is not a creature. He is Eternal and Immutable. He is Holy, Righteous, and Almighty. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He is Jesus Christ, the True and Living God. Was in Santa Barbara a couple of days ago and reminded at the Reagan Ranch Center: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14) This is not God’s promise of salvation from hell though. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. “Nobody comes to the Father but by Him.” Read the most conservative book ever written, published, and read, in HisStory…the Christian Bible. Amen! And don’t read “fake” Bibles and “corrupt” versions of it either or you’ll be a “fake” Christian.

Hope Moore takes all his accusers into court and let’s ”Due Process” win out !!
December 14, 2017,6:13 am
On May 25, 2017 HB 282 was passed – this new law clearly establishes which felony convictions are considered to be crimes of moral turpitude . These convictions result in the loss of the right to vote however individuals with these convictions may be eligible to apply to restore it . This information is not common knowledge because a federal judge ruled the state doesn’t have to inform the potential voters . The judge also found that the state does not have to automatically restore voting rights to citizens who tried to register at work tonight previously .
Via you may owe someone an apology, in your defense it’s not common knowledge – you have to dig for this information . Google HB 282
I for one believe in integrity over party, any party. I see little integrity in any of these politicians

When Dems Lise they cry foul play! When Republicans lose they cry foul play. Both teams are sore losers . Republicans are the masters of gerrymandering, Dems have their own nasty tactics- both sides have lost their dignity and integrity. Trump is just as bad , the only difference is Ttump is childish and far from qualified. Lowest approval ratings for a reason. Horrible man.

Yes, some felons can vote in Alabama . Some people convicted of a felony may apply to have their vote restored upon completion of their full sentence. Those convicted of certain felonies offenses such as murder, rape, sexual crime against children and treason are not eligible. If they weren’t eligible they won’t get approved. My guess is a small % are eligible.
December 14, 2017,1:05 am
Felon voting rights were NOT given back in May! Educate yourself on Alabama Felony Voter Disqualification Act. We need a recount to remove the convicted felons ballots who cast a ballot and voted illegally.

Che Guevara Bannon’s hatred ideology is spawning unAmerican beast to lead us into oblivion as a free democracy.

Go to fact-check.org
There were stories of “fake accusers”, meaning names of people who never came forward in headlines saying they falsified the stories. But the real accusers DID NOT state anything was falsified INCLUDING the year book signature. The story stating the signature was a false story. Also the legal age for an of age man to pursue a woman / girl is and always has been 16.
There are witnesses even policemen who remember Moore being kinked out of malls for predatory behavior.
I believe he’s guilty , and Alabamians do too.
Felon voting rights were given back in May – based on what I’m finding so legally they can vote in Alabama.

Laugh about it, shout about it, when you have to choose, any way you look at it you loose. As a former Democrat, Roy Moore actually won this election. His last minute entry to the Senate race against Luther Strange and his all too choreographed “pedophilia paradox” was a plot to demolish the Republican Party. Thank God for the 22,000 Write-Ins voters savvy enough to perceive this impostor. The Senate ethics committee would have been stymied for a year investigating an endless barrage of Moore’s accusers mushrooming up out of the swamp instead of focusing on the real perverts, Al Franken or the Podesta brothers working Hillary’s campaign.

he is good man

Just days before the election, there was a mass voter registration of “convicted felons”. Allowing the convicted felons, who are not eligible to vote because of the felony they commited and were convicted of, to cast a ballot would make their vote illegal. Ken Glasgow and others should be charged with voting fraud due to their involvement in getting ineligible voters registered and ensuring they could vote. Therefore, we need a recount to remove the convicted felons ballots who cast a ballot and voted illegally.

McConnell should have backed Moore, but he was mad his pet RINO was defeated by Moore for the GOP primarie.
December 13, 2017,8:26 pm
I am with you
December 13, 2017,8:18 pm
Let’s get rids of the RINOs!
December 13, 2017,7:16 pm
Trump is right! Roy Moore was a poor candidate to start with. He may have had conservative platform values. The problem was his integrity and character. Bannon conservatives go for platform values. Republican voters take that into consideration but without integrity and character they will not vote.
John McCain is a prime example. He was wishy washy on the platform and even worse when it came to being a man of real integrity or character. Being a maverick is not appealing when your a maverick against your own party.
McConnell and Ryan are not to blame for this loss. It is the Alabama Republican party who is to blame.

I was praying!
December 13, 2017,6:57 pm
Actually, Obama and Soros’ CAP and OfA [Organize for Action] group has made millions since BO left office and spend millions for the black vote. // Lies re Moore were not widely known.
December 13, 2017,6:37 pm
Should have included Donald John Trump in your who was at fault poll.
December 13, 2017,6:14 pm
New hope for Alabama to be seen as a state where people actually think and decide who to vote for based on more than party affiliation. Miraculous that there were enough Alabama voters to keep the notorious clown Moore out of the Senate.
It is Moore’s fault that he lost, but not because of anything he did during this campaign. He was a freak forty years ago cruising the malls looking for teens to date when he was a district attorney in his thirties. That fact, that he liked them in their teens, was confirmed by multiple sources.
His Unconstitutional insistence that the U.S. is a Christian Theocracy instead of a democratic republic should have kept him out of office. His slam on every amendment after the tenth meant essentially, that he thought we ought to jump backwards two centuries.
Face it CBC crowd, you are better off without the insane Mr. Moore in the Senate.

This is a case of reacting negatively and to fast, to a local fake news story then correcting to little and too late. Trump, McConnell and the RNC should not have gotten involved in the primary. After the primary they should support the parties candidate regardless if that candidate agrees with them. The state has the right to send a representative of their choice. The accusations were mostly proved wrong but that part of the story was not reported out there like the claims were. People thought Moore was acused of peddaphila and rape not at all what he was even accused of in the first place. 40 years ago the age of consent in Alabama was most likely 13 or 14. The youngest accuser said she was 14 when she consented to date Moore. Not have sex with him but go out with him. The people have voted and I hope this result does not lead to much more of this dirty lies, but it will I’m sure if it works we will get much more of it!
December 13, 2017,5:22 pm
McConnell is the main reason for Moore losing. He got pissed Moore beat out Luther his buddy. He saw an opportunity to get back at moore and he did just that. Democrats did not win the election fair it was given to them.
December 13, 2017,5:07 pm
…but not as much as paid-off women.
December 13, 2017,5:03 pm
Mc Turtle Abandoned a GOP candidate m Steve Bannon did not do his Homework and the (D) nazi Party hloofef Alabama with Cal and soros money and OUT of State TOOLS like Devon Patrick, Corey Hooker and Phone calls from O bummer Hussein ae sbag Biden to get Minority nad racists Voters……………GOP BLEW IT
December 13, 2017,4:49 pm
None of the above. It was no landslide for the Democrats that’s for sure.
I read that a leftist “preachers” son was paid to register prison inmates aka felons. That soeaks loads for the party of obstruction!
The accusations that came 40 years after and the year book that was altered are self explanatory.
Roy Moore should consider suing for defamation of character.
December 13, 2017,4:47 pm
Moore terrible candidate with lots of baggage should not have been the nominee Better for GOP that he lost
December 13, 2017,4:33 pm
He is not smart and not strong

Is “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” worth the Oscar hype — or is it being promoted to spread an anti-conservative, anti-police message?
“We want immigration. But we want to vet these people. We want to know who they are and make sure they are going to be productive people. People who are flourish in America, who are going to not be terrorists, not be criminals.”
“It’s unconscionable, to watch the mob media do what they’re doing. Last week we were told the president was mentally unstable. For months before that we’re told he’s colluding with the Russians. Today we are told he’s a racist.”
