    I'm having trouble keeping up these days with all the breaking Roy Moore(or Ray as Rush called him) news. For those in Alabama or those that know, what's the feel for how he is weathering these hits? What are the polls saying? Apologize for the vanity, but so much going on that I know those here will have a feel for the facts.

    The Justice Department’s declaration that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is considering appointing a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton in response to demands by Republicans should alarm anyone who cares about the independence of the department. On Monday, news broke that the department had sent a written response to letters from House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), requesting investigations into “a plethora of matters connected to the 2016 election and its aftermath.” Sessions confirmed the content of the DOJ letter during his testimony Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee. Goodlatte’s letter reads like a laundry list of Republican grievances about...
  • Albuquerque’s Jim Jones Sings and Writes About his Love for the West

    Albuquerque ^ | Saturday, November 4th, 2017 | Ollie Reed Jr.
    It’s difficult to say what came first for Albuquerque’s Jim Jones — his love of music, his love of story or his love of the West. The thing is all three likely settled in his psyche at the exact same instant, when he was just 4 years old. That’s when he heard his father singing “Do Not Forsake Me, Oh My Darlin’,” the theme song for “High Noon,” the classic 1952 Western movie starring Gary Cooper. I do not know what fate awaits me. I only know I must be brave. For I must face a man who hates me,...
  • Was Herman Cain ever proven to be guilty or innocent of the accusations by women?

    Was Herman Cain ever proven to be guilty or innocent of the accusations by women? It all just went away once he stepped down from running. The Dems just wanted to force him out. Private investigator TJ Ward used lie detection software used by law enforcement to analyze Cain's versus Bialek's statements. The results showed Herman Cain was not lying and that Bialek was. Bialek had a long history of shady gold-digging ploys. Bialek was a close neighbor to Obama's campaign manager David Axelrod in Chicago.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is looking into possibly appointing a special counsel to investigate an actual crime. Responding to a flurry of Republican concerns around the Clinton Foundation and the sale of a vast amount of American uranium to Russia, according to a letter The Washington Post unearthed, Sessions appears to be finally taking action. News of this controversial sale of a treasured resource has been around for months. Republicans in Congress have been calling for action on this and the noise has been getting louder in recent weeks. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia in both July...

    Alabama Judge Roy Moore called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to resign on Monday, arguing that McConnell “failed conservatives and must be replaced.” Moore declared, “The person who should step aside is @SenateMajLdr Mitch McConnell. He has failed conservatives and must be replaced. #DrainTheSwamp.” McConnell called for Moore to drop out of the Alabama Senate race on Monday amid allegations from the Washington Post that Moore engaged in sexual misconduct with a 14-year -old and pursued romantic relationships with other teenage girls several decades ago. McConnell said, “I believe the women.” McConnell suggested that a write-in candidate was...

    Could Jimbo Fisher be heading to the SEC? Texas A&M is getting ready to ask about the Florida State coach's interest in leading the Aggies, USA Today reported. Texas A&M would make the move after it informs current coach Kevin Sumlin that he won't be returning, according to the report. Fisher already has a long and solid relationship with Texas A&M athletics director Scott Woodward, both of whom were at LSU in the early 2000s. Along with the fact that the Seminoles are only 3-6 this season, USA Today sources indicate it might not be that hard to persuade Fisher...

    American Thinker ^ | November 14, 2017 | Monica Showalter
    Republican Roy Moore is on the hot seat for alleged bad behavior around women and girls some 40 years ago. Why aren't Democrats Joe Biden and Bob Menendez as well? Former vice president Biden, recall, has a long history of groping women, touching them inappropriately in public, making them obviously uncomfortable, as some of these photos show. Biden is in line as a top Democratic Party contender for the presidency, and nobody's saying a thing about this. Substantially worse than Biden is Democratic senator Bob Menendez, now on trial in New Jersey for corruption. He's been accused of having a...

    The high-profile entrepreneur helped start Draper Fisher Jurvetson.Famed venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson is leaving his job at Draper Fisher Jurvetson in the wake of an investigation into sexual harassment. Jurvetson is the highest-profile venture capitalist to be forced from his job amid an industrywide evaluation of how Silicon Valley treats women. Jurvetson sits on the board of two of tech’s flashiest companies, SpaceX and Tesla, and the news has already stripped him of those posts, at least temporarily. DFJ announced the move in a letter to limited partners on Monday. The firm released a statement to Recode that read: As...

    Aly Raisman is one of the most accomplished American gymnasts of all time. She's won six Olympic medals, three of them gold, and was captain of the U.S. teams that dominated the last two Summer Games: in London -- in 2012 -- and in Rio last year. She hopes to compete in her third Olympics in Tokyo in 2020. Doing a backflip on a balance beam takes a certain type of courage, but right now Raisman will display courage of another kind. She's sharing a story that's about hard work and athletic achievement, and talking publicly for the first time...

    SNIP With the season not as much circling the drain as drained, Giants co-owner John Mara apparently has been replying to fans who have written him letters in outrage. Mara, who along with Steve Tisch confirmed Monday that there would be no house-cleaning prior to season’s end, understands the anger. “I have your letter. Nobody is more upset than I am with our performance so far,” the letter, posted on Twitter last week by @akashmann15, reads. “I learned a long time ago that the season is a marathon, nor a sprint, and things can look a whole lot different in...
