  • Moore vs. McConnell: Alabama Republicans take on D.C.

    McConnell's behavior, vis-à-vis Moore, has been inexcusable, and absolutely contemptible. Kentucky culture is close enough to Alabama, that McConnell should know that he (McConnell) is the one who has been totally out of line in this.

    If we did not need McConnell to get tax reform, etc., I would say a great deal more. But Judge Moore has the high ground here.

    Having been a bachelor, myself, until I turned thirty, I will assure you--and not for the sake of convenience--that it is not reasonable to remember every girl one meets, takes to lunch, a movie, or anywhere else, thirty years later. It is not being evasive.

    Yes, if someone was going steady--or even regularly--out with one or two girls. But Hannity, who may have been more closely focused in his youth, is absolutely being unreasonable with respect to more limited involvements.

    I did not see the Hannity interview. But Hannity’s subsequent comments are a bit silly. If the Judge was vaguee as to possibly knowing some one, is that not normal. Who can remember everyone he may have encountered socially over 35 years ago? He would remember serious misconduct; but as a gentleman he would be protective, not abusive, if he had been in the company of the girls in question. I believe the Judge. I find those rushing to get on the bandwagon of a smear, utterly contemptible.

  • Moore Fumbles Defense on Appearance with Hannity

    I am not sure why Hannity is implying that it is wrong for an older man to date a much younger women. Hannity needs to study the social history of mankind, as such is only questionable if the older man takes some unfair advantage.

    In Britain, for example, the socially acceptable thing was often for a man to spend 20 years or so in the military, and then marry in his forties a girl over twenty years younger. Over here, Grover Cleveland married a 21 year old when he was 49, and had seven (I believe) children by her.

    None of this is really the point. The Washington Post & the "whipped cur" Republicans are on a campaign to dredge up fantasies that even if true would be neither illegal nor in any way relevant to a Senate campaign 38 years later. Sean should never have spotlighted a sham issue.

    While I do not usually contribute to the campaigns of Senate candidates from other States--the Senate being the House intended to represent the States--I consider the needs of striking a blow for decency in political campaigns, so important, that I just made an exception to contribute to the Judge Moore campaign.

    The Leftist media needs to be taught that they cannot destroy good, God Fearing men, by this sort of vicious smear tactic.

    I am not usually comfortable with contributing to Senate races in other States. After all the Senate is supposed to represent their "respective" States.

    That said, I just contributed to Judge Moore's campaign--as a blow for elemental decency. We dare not let the forces that have shown they will stop at virtually nothing in their betrayal of American principles, destroy this good, God Fearing man.

    What is slimey is a news media focusing on an exaggerated judgment of someone's social behavior 38 years ago, when it was not illegal--even if it was what they claimed now--when it has absolutely nothing to do with the issues in the campaign!

    That the accounts appear to have been bought by Leftwing journalists, encouraging the suggested "victims' to fantasize Moore's intentions, for political motives 38 years before! the "discovery" of these new fantasies, makes anyone who embraces this smear, look to be quite slimey, indeed.

    One other point, Southern culture has from the early settlements by Cavalier types, celebrated a chaste flirtation between the sexes --of all ages-- which is an integral part of a culture that has always been very, very protective of women.

    Standing up against the Washington Post & "whipped cur" Republican lynching, is a long overdue blow for restoring elemental decency in American politics.

    All of us now have a stake in Judge Moore's winning.

    We are rapidly coming to a chance to stand up for elemental fairness in the face of an assault by bullies on a good and decent man, based on not at all credible allegations. In short, this is an opportunity for Republican Conservatives to rally to the right to fair elections, not polluted by a claque of political bullies, in high positions, trying to purge any candidate, who dares stand for traditional American values.

    We dare not acquiesce in what is afoot here. Pseudo intellectual poseurs, wringing their hands and shedding crocodile tears, are the ones who are not worthy of our support.

    Excellent work. Hope you post it widely!

    Those corrupt & gutless phonies, who rush to judgment in an effort to destroy a God Fearing Conservative, need to be repudiated by all fair minded Americans.

    The obvious flaw in this argument by NR is that we are not refusing to condemn predators. We are refusing to condemn the victim of an obvious smear. Surely someone at National Review still has the intelligence to understand the difference.

    That this is a text book smear attempt, is sufficiently obvious that I used a similar fictionalized smear by an antagonist (The New York Times) in a novel published in 1998, as a literary device:

    Judge Moore should grab the opportunity to address a potentially huge audience, if he can get the program length time, election eve, by announcing that he will fully respond, and then follow the suggested outline, in #36; thus turning the smear into a huge audience builder.

    This can be turned into opportunity; allowing the intended disaster to be turned back onto those deliberately trying to cause a general rush to judgment.

    God Bless Donald Trump! He is truly focused on what needs to be said, and what needs to follow.

    It is not easy to turn the world back to the reality, which pseudo intellectual "sophisticates" have been trying to suppress since 1946.

    The best that can be said for Mit’s reaction—his rush to judgment!—is that he is an hysterical wimp. No, I do not believe that he is an hysterical wimp—rather just pretending to be, to justify an attempt to purge a Republican Conservative. But, in any event, his comment is disgusting.

    Hopefully, Judge Moore has lined up program length time on Alabama television for election eve. He needs to address this in a totally non defensive way. Go on the attack against this vicious smear. Introduce some of those on his side whom the Post contacted, avowedly seeking dirt; not wanting to listen to those who gave them the answers that they did not want and did not use! Maybe have his wife interview a couple.

    And then close with a vibrant plea for decency; for fair reporting & honest elections; for the America that decent people believe in! Make the dirty tactics & cowardice that enables them the final straw, and resonating issue in the campaign.

    Jefferson, from a slightly different approach, confirms part of what you quote from Franklin--as to the absence of beggars, etc. (See Jefferson On Welfare.)

    As to causation, you need to understand, that more important than how any of the leaders worded specific grievances, was an understanding--not necessarily reduced to so many words, which anyone can quote--that the settlers had built a social & material structure, literally from the ground up. They did not share the inhibiting mystique that clothed Governments in much of the old world.

    Completely regardless of how this or that person chose to verbalize a particular grievance, there was a non verbalized understanding both of their competence to succeed and achieve, and of how nations arise, achieve & succeed, in general.

    I believe that any study of American origins is flawed, which does not recognize the seminal facts:

    Yes. This tactic is so obvious--so blatant--so dirty; that I made it a major part of my novel, published 19 years ago under a pen name. The villain is the New York Times, doing exactly what they tried to do to Donald Trump:

    How a "seasoned politician," such as McConnell, first reacts to a media sex-based smear of another politician, tells us a great deal about the politician rushing to judgment. While Mitch protected himself with an "if," the more obvious point goes to just how this story happened to surface at this moment in time.

    The penchant of Leftwing newspapers to claim to have discovered some sexual aspects of a Conservative candidate's past, is a major factor in my novel (under a pen name) Return Of The Gods, where the antagonist is the New York Times.

    The salient facts, here, appear to be that the Washington Post, which never seems to discover the very recent misdeeds of the Clintons & Obamas, has dredged up a claimed incident that went unobserved, unprotested--and, quite possibly, never even imagined-- for the 38 years between the "events" and the present.

    The only real lesson here--I believe--is that Conservatives can expect only myopic hatred from some of the leading vehicles on the Media Left.

  • Messori: Pope Francis is Creating a ‘Liquid Society’ Church

    This article is chilling. Those cultural heritages no longer seeming relevant to such "tourists" in their own lives, consist in large part of established values based upon past experiences--organic efforts, indeed, to tilt people in the right direction. One may certainly question all past societal decisions; but for the largest Western Religious denomination, to act as though its own past teachings are no longer even relevant--certainly that is the implication here--is almost incredible.

    As a non-Catholic, it may not be my place to wade in, here. But I am having a great difficulty seeing how this Pope could possibly justify, what it is suggested here!

    You are completely on the mark. King worked with Communists & fellow travelers throughout his career. JFK was a Harvard "educated" New Deal Democrat, but not a committed Marxist.

    Although it would likely be denied, today, the Conservative National Baptist Convention, I believe the largest Negro denomination, actively resisted the attempts of King supporters to subvert its message. The old Mayor Daly of Chicago called on the Conservative Black clergy to help resist King's efforts to stir up racial antagonisms the summer before someone made the decision that he would henceforward be more useful as a martyr.

    (No, I do not have any direct evidence of that decision, but I agree with the King family that the official narrative of the assassination was false. There are just too many things that do not really fit the official narrative.)
