SWEET HOME ALABAMA … ROY MOORE WINS!!!
Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore has won the Alabama Republican primary for U.S. Senate, defeating an appointed incumbent backed by President Donald Trump and hand picked ally of Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. WAY TO GO ALABAMA. Moore not only defeated Strange, he crushed him 55% to 45%. In the end, the people of Alabama spoke and it was the people of Alabama who knew that Roy Moore was the better candidate to run for US Senate, more so that even President Donald Trump.
Republican challenger Roy Moore defeated Sen. Luther Strange in Alabama’s Senate primary Tuesday night, riding a wave of rural support over the incumbent backed by President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Moore, a former state Supreme Court justice, had 55 percent of the vote to Strange’s 45 percent with 95 percent of precincts reporting. Strange, who was appointed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ old seat earlier this year, is the first senator to lose a primary since Indiana Republican Richard Lugar was defeated in 2012.
Moore’s victory comes despite the efforts of top Republicans in Washington, who threw their weight behind Strange. Trump endorsed Strange in August and appeared with him in Alabama last week, while a super PAC aligned with McConnell spent millions of dollars on pro-Strange advertising.
But Strange never led a single public poll against Moore since finishing behind Moore in the August primary and qualifying for the runoff. Moore had been elected statewide twice and built up a committed conservative following during stints on the state Supreme Court, where he defied federal orders on same-sex marriage and the display of a statue of the Ten Commandments and racked up a history of controversial comments on race and religion.
Sweet Home Alabama
This should be a wake up call to both President Donald Trump and especially Sen. Mitch McConnell. This election is not a referendum on President Trump as he is still admired and adored in Alabama with high approval ratings. However, this is a bitter defeat and referendum on McConnell. The GOP has been a failure and should take this as a sign to either resign his position or leave the U.S. Senate altogether.
Get ready for the wave America. Fueled by the LEFT’s continual denial of the 2016 presidential election, the disrespectful National Anthem situation and the Republican establishment’s failures, the Democrats are not going to take anything back in 2018, the country is not moving left, looks for establishment GOP, gutless SOB’s to be primary challenged and lose and for them to resign from office before they are embarrassed.
A note to President Donald Trump … you took part in a wave election in 2016, make sure you are not on the wrong side again for the 2018 wave election. You stated you were going to drain the swamp, DO IT!
To the great state of Alabama, THANK YOU!!! You just sent a political shot across the bow of the GOP establishment politicians. Look for many of these cowards to see the writing on the wall and finally leave Washington, DC. If they don’t voluntarily, we will vote them out once and for all.
Despite Trump & McConnell’s Support, Alabama Senator Luther Strange Struggles to a Primary Finish against Real Conservative Republicans
THE BEST THING THAT CAN HAPPEN IS THAT MCCONNELL ESTABLISHMENT TOADIE SEN. LUTHER STRANGE LOSES THE PRIMARY!!!
To the good people of Alabama, DRAIN THE SWAMP!!! On Tuesday you have an opportunity to make your voices heard and push back against the establishment, RINO’s in Washington, DC. GOP Senate Majority leaders Mitch McConnell’s choice, Sen. Luther Strange, is limping his way across the finish line. Do not let this hand-picked McConnell toadie win and replace the seat of Sen. Jeff Sessions with the likes of this.. A vote for Strange is a vote for McConnell. The Republican electorate needs to Ditch Mitch, not make him more powerful. Alabama, vote for the conservatives, not the RINO establishment candidate who is nothing more than a McConnell suck up. Alabama is a deep red state with conservative values, vote like it and send a message to the GOP establishment everywhere that we are sick of their games, lies and lack of representation. The fact of the matter is that Democrats will never win the senate seat in Alabama. If the GOP grassroots elects in the primary a true conservative, they will be elected in the general election.
This is your big chance to let your voice be heard, don’t wast the opportunity!
Senator Luther Strange of Alabama wields an endorsement from the president of the United States, is the beneficiary of a multimillion-dollar campaign from allies of Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, and has the backing of influential conservative interest groups like the National Rifle Association.
But Mr. Strange is wheezing into Tuesday’s Republican Senate primary here. He is grasping to secure a second-place finish and a slot in a September runoff with Roy S. Moore, the twice-deposed former State Supreme Court justice and evangelical-voter favorite who is expected to be the top vote-getter but may fall short of the majority needed to win outright.
Mr. Strange is in a political vise, pinched by his links to a pair of Republicans, one local and one national, held in low esteem by many in the party here: the disgraced former Gov. Robert Bentley, who appointed Mr. Strange, and Mr. McConnell.
Personally, I am disgusted that President Trump would back this McConnell stooge. The fact that Trump endorsed with McConnell stooge greatly surprises and annoys me. After the war of words between Trump and McConnell over the Senate majority leader sating that Trump had “excessive expectations,” it is troublesome that Trump would continue to back the very gutless Republican politician that make up the swamp. This is a political warning shot President Trump, if you do not do what you promises and drain the swamp and continue to back McConnell senate toadies, you will lose my vote.
Yet the ad campaign by the McConnell-aligned Senate Leadership Fund — while doing significant damage to a third Republican candidate in the race, Representative Mo Brooks, a hard-line conservative — has also highlighted Mr. Strange’s ties to the congressional Republican leadership. And it has come at a moment when conservatives are furious at lawmakers for not repealing the Affordable Care Act and Mr. Trump is placing much of the blame at the feet of Mr. McConnell.
Naturally, Mr. Strange’s rivals have seized on his ties to Mr. McConnell. At a candidate forum in nearby Trussville this month, one of Mr. Brooks’s top applause lines was a call for Mr. McConnell to be removed as the party’s Senate leader.
In an interview near his campaign bus, a “Ditch Mitch” banner fastened to the front, Mr. Brooks even found a way to invoke Mr. McConnell when pressed about Mr. Trump’s decision to endorse Mr. Strange.
A NOTE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP, YOU BETTER DAMN WILL FIGURE OUT WHO YOUR BASE IS AND WHO SUPPORTS YOU AND IT AIN’T MCCONNELL GOP SELLOUTS!
THE LEFT HAS A LOT OF SOUL SEARCHING TO DO AND SOME EXPLAINING FOR THEIR HATEFUL, VIOLENT RHETORIC …
As reported at The Daily Caller, an assassination list was found on the body of James Hodgkinson, the Left-wing radical, who attempted to shoot Congressional Republicans while they practices baseball this past week in Alexandria, Va. As suspected by the fact that Hodgkinson’s asked whether those practicing were Republicans or Democrats, this was not a random act of violence. The assassination, kill list proves proof positive that this was a premeditated attempt to murder Republicans. Names on the hand written list included, Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Tennessee Rep. Scott DesJarlais and Virginia Rep. Morgan Griffith. All conservative members of the House Freedom Caucus. This was a premeditated effort by a whack-job on the LEFT to assassinate Conservatives.
Imagine what the wall-to-wall news cycle would have been like had Hodgkinson been a Conservative with an assassination list, or a member of the Tea Party? But instead, he was a LEFTY who volunteered for Sanders’ campaign so Democrats and the MSM cry, for the moment, or the second, can’t we all just get along.
James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on dozens of Republican congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI, The Daily Caller has learned.
The news that the shooter had a list of names suggests the shooting was not a random outburst, but instead appears to be a premeditated political assassination.
The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter’s pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the investigation. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, TheDC has confirmed. Fox News reported after this story that Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Tennessee Rep. Scott DesJarlais and Virginia Rep. Morgan Griffith are also on the list. All six congressmen are members of the House Freedom Caucus, which contains the lower chamber’s most conservative members.
Isn’t it ironic and typical that for years we have been told by the MSM, Democrats and the LEFT that it was the Tea Party that was violent and that they would harm liberals and even make an attempt on former President Obama’s life. But instead, it is the LEFT that attempts assassination.
TRUMP TELLS CPAC THAT WE ARE GOING TO BUILD WALL BETWEEN MEXICO AND USA AHEAD OF SCHEDULE …
Today at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, in National Harbor, MD, President Donald Trump told the those in attendance that the U.S. was going to build a wall between Mexico and the United States and that it was way ahead of schedule. President Trump praised the job of Gen. Kelly, Homeland Security secretary, and reminded everyone that we are getting the bad ones out of this country. Trump reiterated that he was getting illegals out of the county who have committed crimes like drugs and murder. Trump stated, “basically, all I have done is keep my promise.”
President Donald Trump at CPAC 2017 … “I want you all to know that we are fighting the fake news. It’s fake, phony, fake.” (VIDEO)
TRUMP ATTACKS MSM … ‘THEY’LL SAY HE NEVER GOT A STANDING OVATION”…
President Donald Trump spoke today at CPAC 2017 much to the thrill and enjoyment of those in attendance. President Trump began his speech by calling out the MSM and their fake news by asking the people in the audience to sit down as the media will say that Trump never got a standing ovation from CPAC. Trump added that they will forget to mention that those in attendance never sat down during his speech. ZING!!!
Trump exposed the MSM and their fake news for not even being able to properly report the story where he said that fake news was the enemy of the people. The president stated, he is not against the media, he is against fake new.
I am only against the fake news media or press. I’m against the people that make up stories and make up sources. They shouldn’t be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody’s name. Let their name be put out there. There are some great reporters out there. You have no idea how bad it is. You have a lot of them…the Clinton News Network is one.
Trump said networks like CNN, ABC and CBS use fake polls to discourage voters from voting and to promote their own agenda.
Via The Daily Caller, President Trump blisters the MSM and its fake news.
“Sit down, everybody,” Trump said as he took the stage. “You know the dishonest media, they’ll say, ‘He didn’t get a standing ovation.’ They are the worst.”
“You know my first major speech was at CPAC, probably five or six years ago. My first political speech. I wanted to come last year but I thought at that time I was too controversial.”
“The media didn’t think we would win. The pundits didn’t think we would win. The consultants that suck up all that money, oh they suck it up there so good, but the consultants didn’t think we would win. But they all underestimated the power of the people — you. And the people proved them totally wrong.”
“Never underestimate the people,” he continued. “Never. I don’t think it will ever happen again.”
“I want you all to know that we are fighting the fake news. It’s fake, phony, fake. A few days ago I called the fake news the enemy of the people, and they are. Because they have no sources. They just make it up when there are none. They make up sources. They’re very dishonest people. They did not explain that I called the fake news the enemy of the people. They dropped off the word fake. That’s the way they are. I’m not against the media. I’m not against the press. I don’t mind bad stories, if I deserve them. I love good stories. I don’t get too many of them. I am only against the fake news media or press. I’m against the people that make up stories and make up sources. They shouldn’t be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody’s name. Let their name be put out there. There are some great reporters out there. You have no idea how bad it is. You have a lot of them…the Clinton News Network is one.”
Trump said networks like CNN, ABC and CBS use fake polls to discourage voters from voting and to promote their own agenda.
“It creates a whole false deal, folks,” he said. “And we have to fight it. They get upset when we expose their false stories. They say we can’t criticize their coverage because of the First Amendment. Nobody loves it [the First Amendment] better than me.”
“As you saw, throughout the entire campaign, and even now, the fake news doesn’t tell the truth. So, just in finishing, I say it doesn’t represent the people. It never will represent the people. We have to go out and speak our minds and we have to be honest.”
