    Sunday on the “Cats Roundtable” radio show on AM 970 in New York City, former White House chief strategist and Breitbart executive chairman Steve Bannon said Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his “cronies” would be run out of office by what he called “the grassroots deplorables.” Bannon said, “Now that he’s afraid, now that he sees that the grassroots movement – whether it’s in Alabama or Arizona or Tennessee or Mississippi – is going to replace his cronies like Jeff Flake and Bob Corker, now he’s scared, and now he’s trying to move more federal judges through the...
  • REPORT: Mitch McConnell Camp Planted Roy Moore Story To Clear Path For Trump Impeachment Attempt

    What a disgusting cesspool of self-serving corruption is the nation’s capital and no better example of that can be found today than Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell who, according to longtime political activist, Ned Ryun, was a primary source of the anti-Roy Moore stories that are now attempting to sway the upcoming Alabama special election and help clear the path for a Trump impeachment attempt in 2018. “…I strongly suspect it’s a very short list of people, all who are associated with Mitch McConnell – whether it’s Josh Holmes, whether it’s Karl Rove, might even be Steven Law – I...
  • Vanity - McConnell Backbone as Moore rebounds, big time in Alabama.

    11/19/2017 4:53:11 AM PST · by JLAGRAYFOX · 26 replies
    Well.... it appears that Gloria Allred, true to her past form has given Judge, Roy Moore a "hand-up", rather then a "take-down". Without tons of blather, Mitch McConnell is in deep political trouble for his mouthing off, insulting every voter in the great state of Alabama. The end result of the McConnell, Bannon, Breitbart, Moore gig has yet to be determined, but...it looks like Roy Moore is alive, well and now winning in Alabama. Bottom line: McConnell is on life support. He has one card left to play....and, if he is smart...he will play it immediately in the Senate. or...

    Have you all noticed Mitch McConnell has gone silent (silence is golden) and has "snake" slipped into the Republican Establishment RINO, closet, so as to be out-of-sight, out-of-mind, these days, as Judge Roy Moore comes roaring back with money, determination and strong fight to remain in and win the political race for USA Senate in Alabama. You all do know that if, Judge, Roy Moore wins this special election on 12/12/2017 in Alabama....Mitch McConnell and his brood of Trump Hater RINOs turn into dead political fish, immediately..Alabama voters "ALL", regardless of political party,....cast your votes for Judge, Roy Moore on...

    American Majority founder Ned Ryun talked about Roy Moore and the Alabama Senate race with Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steve Bannon and SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam on Friday’s Breitbart News Daily, broadcast live from the Restoration Weekend event. Bannon asked Ryun about celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred’s involvement in the Roy Moore case, representing a woman who accuses Moore of assaulting her in 1977 when she was 16 years old. Ryan said Allred is “basically a human vulture when you look back at some of the things she’s been involved in.”

    Since last week, the political news has been dominated not by the Bob Menendez corruption trial, not by the fight to pass tax reform in the House, which happened Thursday, not by the rather stupendous accomplishments of the president and his team during his Asia trip — including bailing out three UCLA basketball players who stupidly got themselves arrested for shoplifting at a Louis Vuitton store in China — but instead by a series of allegations about the Republican nominee in the special election in Alabama to replace Jeff Sessions in the Senate.

    NBC "News" ^ | November 17, 2017 | by Jonathan Allen and Keri Geiger
    MOBILE, Ala. — Roy Moore is on the warpath against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. As Republicans here reckon with allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore, their nominee in next month's Senate election is trying to turn the race into a referendum on whether McConnell has spent too much time on Alabama politics and too little advancing President Donald Trump's agenda in Washington. There are signs that his attacks are resonating with Republicans in some corners of Alabama. "I’m picking up a strong sense that people are not happy that people from outside the state, particularly the Washington establishment, are...

    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is moving to nix the blue slip for two of President Trump’s judicial picks, sparking a showdown with Democrats over nominations. Grassley announced on Thursday that he has scheduled Nov. 29 hearings for David Stras, Trump’s nomination to be an appellate judge on the 8th Circuit, and for Kyle Duncan, nominated to serve the 5th Circuit. “Today I’m announcing that the Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing for two circuit court nominees, each of whom has one home state senator who has not returned a blue slip containing a positive endorsement,” Grassley said from the Senate...

    Hours after news broken that a U.S. senator made inappropriate sexual advances on a woman, Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore said he is not getting the similar benefit of the doubt. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minnesota, was accused by sports broadcaster Leeann Tweeden of groping her and kissing her aggressively when they were rehearsing a skit for a USO show in 2006. The incidents occurred two years before Franken - a former comedian - was elected to the Senate. Sen. Al Franken accused of kissing, groping woman Sen.

    Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore reacted to the groping allegations made against Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken on Thursday by arguing a double standard is at play. In a tweet, Moore, who is facing calls to drop of the Senate race after multiple women have accused him of sexual misconduct in the past, attacked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell over his differing responses. Moore tweeted: “Al Franken admits guilt after photographic evidence of his abuse surfaces. Mitch: ‘Let's investigate.’ In Alabama, ZERO evidence, allegations 100% rejected. Mitch: ‘Moore must quit immediately or be expelled.’”

The voters of Alabama will decide and determine the political fate of Judge Roy Moore...period.

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said Wednesday that the Senate would have “no choice but to seat” Judge Roy Moore if he wins the Alabama Senate race in December. According to the law, “We would have no choice but to seat him,” she said, speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill. Her remarks come amid threats from Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and other establishment Republican senators that they will push Moore out even if he wins on December 12 over Democrat Doug Jones. Republican senators who opposed Moore are calling for him to step aside, after the Washington Post published an interview...

    Axios ^ | 11/14/2017 | Erica Pandy
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that if Alabama's Senate candidate Roy Moore wins, he'll face an ethics investigation immediately after he's sworn into office. "It would be a rather unusual beginning," McConnell said, speaking at a Wall Street Journal event. "I'd like to save the seat, and it's a heck of a dilemma when you've got a completely unacceptable candidate bearing the label of your party within a month of the election," he added. McConnell is one of several Republicans who have called for Moore to step aside. He has also spoken with President Trump and Vice President Pence...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday publicly floated the idea of getting Attorney General Jeff Sessions to take his old Senate seat, as Republicans continue to seek alternatives to Judge Roy Moore. McConnell made the comments to the Wall Street Journal's CEO Council while talking about who could mount a successful write-in campaign, like Sen. Lisa Murkowski did in Alaska in 2010. McConnell said she was popular in the state and was universally well-known, qualities that Sessions has in Alabama. "The name being most often discussed may not be available, but the Alabamian who would fit that standard would...

    In the continuing Roy Moore sexual misconduct allegations controversy, there are a lot of unknowns. But we do know one thing: Mitch McConnell can't lose. The rest of us? Not so much. The accusations against Moore and the nature of those allegations couldn't have come at a better time for McConnell, whose top priority is and has always been consolidating his personal power in the Senate. Politically, this works out well for McConnell because the news broke a few weeks after Moore defeated Senator Luther Strange in the Alabama special election primary. Strange was the candidate McConnell backed in the...

    The Republican leader of the Senate told a crowd gathered on Sunday at the institute honoring one of the chamber’s most liberal members that the late Edward M. Kennedy’s skills as a legislator are the kind needed to help the fractious body learn to once again cooperate. Majority leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said Kennedy was someone who could separate the personal from the political and who stayed true to his word. Those are characteristics that will help the body function better in the future, and there are already signs of progress, McConnell said. “A real sense of renewal is...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday called for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to "step aside," according to the Associated Press. His comments come after a woman accused Moore of initiating sexual contact with her in 1979, when she was 14 and he was 32. McConnell was asked if he believes the allegations to be true. "I believe the women," he said.

    Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is now admitting that some middle class Americans might see tax increases after all if the new Republican tax plan goes through. Kentucky Republican senator McConnell had previously stated that 'nobody in the middle class is going to a tax increase' under the new tax plan, but dialed back his assertion in a new interview. 'I misspoke on that,' McConnell told the New York Times on Friday, noting that it wasn't possible to guarantee that 'no one sees a tax increase.' McConnell went on to explain that what the Republicans were 'targeting levels of income...
