    Full title: Child Sex Abuse Victim Calls Out Doug Jones for ‘Hypocrisy’- Jones Had Said Victim’s Claims Were ‘Without Merit,’ ‘Cynical Attempt to Extort Money’ According to a report from AL.com’s Amy Yurkanin, a woman who sued the University of Alabama-Birmingham in 2001 over sexual abuse she claimed to have suffered as a 15-year-old ripped Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Doug Jones for “hypocrisy” for his role as a defense attorney for the university. Brittany Benefield, the plaintiff in what at the time was a high-profile suit, had been a student at UAB. She was recruited by the university as a...
  • AL SEN: Pollster Says New Poll Has Democrat Leading Over Roy Moore

    There’s a new poll coming out today around 11 A.M. on the Alabama Senate race. It comes after a whirlwind week in the special election to decide who will replace Attorney Jeff Sessions’ vacancy. Supposedly, Harry Enten at FiveThirtyEight got wind that it will show Democratic candidate and abortion extremist Doug Jones in the lead. If true, how much? We don’t know, but given the nature of the Alabama electorate, it’ll probably be within the margin of error, or maybe a step of two outside of that. Then again, it could show Jones with a rather solid lead in a...

    Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D.-Minn.) (CNSNews.com) - Every member of the U.S. Senate and all staff members are required to undergo sexual harassment training in the next 60 days and at least once every two years after that under the terms of a resolution that the Senate approved on Thursday evening . The resolution was sponsored by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D.-Minn.), the ranking member of the Senate Rules Committee, and co-sponsored by 19 others. Among the co-sponsors were Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.), Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R.-Iowa), Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D.-Ill.) and Sen. Ted Cruz...

    Back on August 10th, I wrote a vanity post titled, I'm Sending Money To Support Roy Moore For The US Senate, How About You?". I made the case for my belief that Roy Moore is the best candidate for Jeff Sessions vacated US Senate seat from Alabama. In that post I said that the establishment will do all they can to defeat Moore. Well, here we are a little over a Month away from the election, and the Swamp is now coming after him. With John McCain leading the charge that Roy Moore should immediately step aside and allow...
  • Social Conservatives Finally Find an Activist Judge They Can Embrace

    For quite some time now conservative Republicans have been screaming about activist judges who put their own political opinions above the law. And they've been right to complain. But now, thanks to socially conservative voters in Alabama, we learn that they didn't really mean it. What bothered them weren't activist judges in general -- just liberal activist judges. Conservative activism by a judge who gets his marching orders from the Bible is fine. Republican social conservatives in Alabama, many of them evangelical Christians, elected former state judge Roy Moore as their nominee to run next month for the United States...

    Draws accolades for "unshakeable" pro-life, pro-family conviction ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - A Vatican human rights representative is forecasting that if elected on December 12, Judge Roy Moore of Alabama will-be the U.S. Senate's "most reliable pro-life and pro-family advocate." Attorney Gualberto Garcia Jones, an advisor to the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the Organization of American States, writes at LifeSiteNews that Moore would be the Senate's most "consistent social conservative," beholden only to God and to the people of Alabama. *** After winning the race, Moore rallied supporters. In a speech reflecting his bedrock Christian values, he quoted...

    The Senate confirmed two more appeals court picks Thursday, closing out a week that saw them devote all their time to filling the federal judiciary with President Trump’s nominees. Including the two latest picks, they confirmed four circuit judges and one district judge this week — overcoming Democratic filibuster attempts for each. Senators voted 56-41 to confirm Colorado Supreme Court Justice Allison Eid for a seat on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, then voted 54-43 for Stephanos Bibas, who is nominated to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

    Kevin Nicholson, a former Marine Corps combat veteran who is running for Senate in Wisconsin, announced a strong start in his fundraising since he threw his hat into the race to take on Democratic junior Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) two months ago. Nicholson’s campaign announced Tuesday that he has raised over $400,000 in the third quarter from over 1,850 donations at under $220 each on average. According to his campaign, more than 1,500 donations were $100 or less. “The fundraising total was accomplished in a little more than two months since Kevin launched his campaign at the end of July,...

    West Virginia Attorney General and U.S. Senate candidate Patrick Morrisey spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Friday regarding his campaign, including his recent endorsement by pro-President Trump Super PAC Great America Alliance. Morrisey also discussed his tenure as attorney general, saying, “The reason I want to run for Senate is Washington is utterly broken.” He also talked about his record of going after the Obama administration for what he called “stupid regulations.” “We can start to clean up these terribly burdensome regulations. We can make the tax code much simpler, much flatter, so that it works...
  • Hardball: McConnell Changes Rule to Overcome Obstruction of Trump's Judicial Picks, Dems Fume

    This may seem like an abstruse parliamentary maneuver -- and it is -- but Mitch McConnell just escalated the judicial wars in a minor but meaningful way. If frustrated conservatives want the GOP Senate majority to " start acting like one ," McConnell's decision eliminates a lever Democrats have been using to stymie some of President Trump's judicial picks. In that sense, he's very much acting like a majority leader; a Democratic one. Try not to let your eyes glaze over as you read the details of this move, which involves dramatically reducing the power of so-called "blue slips"...

    Miller suggested that given Corker’s newfound willingness to criticize the Trump and his reluctance to support his agenda, Corker should step aside and allow Gov. Bill Haslam (R-TN) to appoint Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), who announced she would seek that seat in the U.S. Senate last week.

    The Associated Press published a piece today highlighting Senator Jeff Flake's free fall in the polls in Arizona's tense Republican primary contest. Flake has seen dwindling support ever since he published his anti-Trump book, Conscience of a Conservative. That book criticized the Republican party for not standing up to then candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 GOP presidential primary. In the book, he says Trump does not have the conservative accolades nor character needed to run the Republican party. In essence, Flake argued that the Republican party "lost its way" by electing Trump. The conservative voters of Arizona, however,...

    *** Following an exclusive interview with Bossie on Thursday, Breitbart News reported: “We support Patrick Morrisey for Senate because he has a proven record of results fighting for conservative West Virginia values and against the harmful liberal agenda of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton,” Bossie added. “Attorney General Morrisey was there to take on executive overreach at the Obama Environmental Protection Agency for the coal miners and he’s been there to support President Trump’s agenda taking on sanctuary cities and pushing for much needed tax reform. I look forward to working with Patrick Morrisey to enact President Trump’s conservative agenda...

Marine Corp Veteran and businessman Nicholson is the first Republican candidate to officially enter the Wisconsin senate race and looks to unseat liberal Sen. Tammy Baldwin next fall. “The American people are tired of the tax-and-spend policies coming from Washington and they are looking for solutions that create jobs, cut government spending, and get the economy going again.

    The vast majority of people polled in New Jersey want Sen. Robert Menendez (D) to step down if he's found guilty on charges of bribery, according to a new poll that shows the embattled senator's favorability rating plummeting. Eighty-four percent of likely voters call for him to resign in a new Suffolk University poll commissioned by USA Today , while just 10 percent believe he should stay in office if convicted. Those high marks are even reflected among Democrats, as more than three quarters agree he should not remain in office if convicted. His favorable rating is upside down in...

    The Senate on Monday night unanimously passed a resolution condemning white nationalists, white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, and neo-Nazis, calling on the Trump administration—namely Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Department of Homeland Security—to investigate “all acts of violence, intimidation, and domestic terrorism by White supremacists, White nationalists, neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, and associated groups.” The resolution is seen as backlash from President Trump’s ambiguous response to the violence in Charlottesville last August, in which a 32-year-old woman who was killed by a neo-Nazi who drove into a crowd of demonstrators. Trump blamed “both sides” for the violence,...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has declined to make a Shermanesque statement that would flatly rule out the possibility that he would appoint himself to fill the Senate seat of Democrat Senator Bob Menendez. Sen. Menendez is currently under federal trial, facing bribery and corruption charges. Should Menendez be removed from office or resign before Christie’s term ends on January 18, 2018, Christie would have the power to appoint his replacement. In a recorded interview aired on this today’s Morning Joe, New York Times reporter Nick Confessore said to Christie, “I’m looking for a Shermanesque statement here.” View the video...

    A new poll shows former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore with a commanding lead over Luther Strange, the Washington establishment backed candidate, heading into the GOP primary runoff for the Alabama U.S. Senate seat left open this year. The poll from JMC Analytics provided to Breitbart News ahead of its public release shows Moore with 51 percent, a majority, supporting him, while Strange trails nearly 20 points behind with just 32 percent—and 17 percent are undecided. Moore’s commanding lead comes after he outperformed polls to finish around 39 percent in a multi-way primary this past Tuesday. Strange finished...

    When Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey goes on trial on federal corruption charges in less than three weeks, far more than his own fate hinges on the outcome. If Mr. Menendez, a Democrat, is convicted and then expelled from the United States Senate by early January, his replacement would be picked by Gov. Chris Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey and an ally of President Trump. That scenario — where Mr. Menendez’s interim replacement would more than likely be a Republican — would have immediate and far-reaching implications: The Republicans would be gifted a crucial extra vote just...
