I’m no great supporter of Judge Roy Moore. Heck – I was a Mo Brooks guy. He’s looking pretty good right about now – isn’t he?

It seems few are coming to Moore’s defense. Everyone is so afraid to even go near the guy for fear that if the allegations of sexual misconduct are true, anyone who once defended him would also go down in flames.

Well, I’m going to defend him and assume he’s innocent until I discover otherwise. That’s called – you got it – the American way. Some of us still believe in the arcane principle of innocent until proven guilty. You don’t have to support or even like the guy to uphold this ideal.

I will because A: These are so far just uncorroborated and baseless accusations B: At least one accuser worked for both Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and is campaigning for Moore’s democrat opponent. C: Indications are that Corfman, the main accuser, has claimed several pastors at various churches made sexual advances at her. D: “Former Secret Service agent Doug Lewis has made an [as yet] unsubstantiated claim that a WaPo reporter named “Beth” offered a family friend $1000 to accuse Roy Moore, and that a tape of the offer is in the hands of the DA.” Lewis claims the WaPo reporter lives right outside D.C. and donated to Hillary and the DNC in 2016.

If I’m wrong and he does turn out to be a dirt bag – then so what. Will I be the only one in history to defend a guilty man? No. Everyone has, at one time or another, been fooled into defending someone they later found to be indefensible – or simply backed the wrong person. And being smart or dumb has nothing to with it.

Mark Levin is one of the smartest guys I know when it comes to politics and certainly the Constitution. Heck – he’s just one of the smartest guys I know – period. But I still recall my bemusement when he backed Orrin Hatch in his last reelection bid. Mark later admitted his error in judgment and life went on. I for one don’t think less of him for that mistake. Remember – “He that is without sin among you…”

Look at everyone still today defending Hillary Clinton, after all we’ve learned just so far. Granted, her list of supporters is shrinking daily, but it still probably outstrips the political support that Judge Moore is getting from his so-called party.

Yet it’s different in Moore’s case. It’s not just the dems who despise Moore. The Republicans hate Roy Moore and resent him for stealing the primary from their anointed establishment hack Luther Strange.

Strange was to be another Mitch McConnell rubber stamp yes-man. He had the money and the backing of the Party. He was an apparatchik, a comrade in the Republican political machine. Yet even with all those advantages, Alabama rejected him.

In years past I may have believed accusers of this kind of conduct much more easily. But then came the Clarence Thomas case. His accuser lied. Then the most famous Duke Lacrosse case, and so on. Now the whole Trump dirty dossier non-scandal. The entire dossier appears to be fabricated.

Now another woman has come forward. Attorney Theresa D. Jones was a colleague of Moore’s in the Alabama D.A.’s office in the early 1980s. Just days ago Jones told CNN national correspondent Alexander Marquardt that, “It was common knowledge that Roy dated high school girls. Everyone we knew thought it was weird. We wondered why someone his age would hang out at high school football games and the mall.” He was in his early 30s at the time.

So let me get this straight. It was common knowledge in the office sworn to uphold the law that Moore was fooling around with possibly underage high school girls and no one bothered to say, “Gee – Roy may be breaking the law. Maybe we in the District Attorney’s office should look into it.” This never entered anyone’s mind?!

This begs the question of who contacted who. Did CNN find her or did Jones contact the everything Trump and Republican-hating network? This shouldn’t be important, but sadly today it is. As we know, CNN is not a news organization. It is a confederation of leftist advocates. Any dirt they can lay their hands on that may damage or impede the right, true or not, will be published or aired.

If Moore is innocent, it is a travesty that so many are just standing by and allowing him to be railroaded. Even worse is the piling on – knowing nothing of the facts.

If Moore is guilty of what he is accused of, hopefully he will get what’s coming. Until then I will continue to assume his innocence.

  1. I’ve been reading about this since it “broke” but I’ve yet to weigh in. I’m breaking my silence here.

    I agree. I agree for all the reasons you give plus sexual predators–including especially the sort of creatures that seek out children specifically for sex–have about the highest recidivism rate of any class of scumbags. They do NOT just quit. They don’t outgrow it. They are like Weinstein who was apparently the fricking everready evil bunny of sexual predators.

    Yet nothing like that, not even hints about Moore for 38 years? We’ve got the baked cake of suspect ‘sourcing’ the icing of this being BAU straight out of the democrat bag of dirty tricks and the cherry on top—accusations not supported by decades of intervening known behavior.

    I’ve got no dog in this fight, am only sorta following it because of the leftist generated “crisis” they’re attempting to exploit but like with the other manufactured “outrages” against NOT-Leftists*, from attacks on DJT on down the list of Rs…there’s just no “THERE”…anywhere.

    *The “outrages” against the Leftist perverts don’t seem manufactured. It’s more like they reached critical mass and fricking exploded when the pressure of hiding them got too great.

  2. First … regardless of the eventuality of Roy Moore being exonerated or not I think we are seeing here something more dangerous than simply this one instance. The Left … fully supported by the Liberals, democrats, GOP, RINOs, Establishment, Never Trumpers, and Pseudo Conservatives … have finally found a weapon that seems to work.
    Simple allegation of “impropriety” of any sort (a term that seems to be pretty loose in its definition) is causing lots of “republicans” to “Step Aside” … “Step Down” … or otherwise “Leave Office” citing their unwillingness to “tarnish” the Republican Party or “Hurt the Efforts of Our President &/or His Administration.
    This creates at least three problems. One; removing oneself seems to lend credibility to the Accusations which will cause yet more problems. Two; removing oneself deprives the Country, the President and the People of Valuable Conservative Supporters in Government. Three; Removal of oneself, or premature removal of oneself, leaves fewer potential candidates to fill the various positions needed to be filled leaving the President and the People with “second” or “third” string options AND increases the time required to fill these positions.

    I am watching in horror “conservatives” and “republicans” scurry away, tails tucked between their legs, simply because of scurrilous accusations … unproven and unsubstantiated … have been “thrown” out there mostly by some version of the Left. I have to admit sadly that it never occurred to me that my being conservative would suddenly have me identifying with a group of what seem to be Craven Gutless Cowards. Did these people think that jumping into the fray of politics with the intention of Stopping the Left from demolishing Our Nation was going to be EASY? Bloodless? Simple? Or that the Left would otherwise go quietly away?

    SECOND; I don’t know about Roy Moore. I know that he seems to be a lightening rod for criticism by the Left and GOP Establishment because of his unwillingness to bend to their dictates in several instances. Personally the thing with the Ten Commandments as well as his stance on Marriage should never have really been a problem except for people who want to reinterpret the Constitution (freedom of religion … not FROM) or Religion (marriage is a RELIGIOUS event and should be determined BY those Religions). As I see it, both of those issues are coming from the Left and I do not support them though I am not religious or faith oriented myself. As far as I can tell. Roy Moore is at least as suitable as any other candidate or perhaps moreso in that he, at least, HAS a Stance … Has a Spine … Has the Intestinal Fortitude to Stand Up for what HE considers “Right”

    THIRD; the accusations being leveled against him seem to be falling apart. It seems that WaPo (the Washington Post … Owned by Democrat Mega Donor Jeff Bezos … which has had a lot of credibility issues ever and has slanted Hard Left since being bought by Bezos) went to find SOME WAY to besmirch Moore’s reputation. From what I can gather, they were Actively Soliciting Accusers … offering to actually pay them for making accusations whether proven, substantiated or not. The Primary Accuser, Corfman’s story seems to be falling apart … apparently she never talked to him on the phone at night in her bedroom since, as her mother inadvertently revealed, she never had a phone in her bedroom … there was only ONE phone in the house. Further, it seems that she has leveled similar accusations at several Pastors … all of which were thrown out due to her lack of credibility and changing story … her personal credibility is questionable as well in terms of 3 divorces and 3 bankruptcies.

    The first time I was personally SHOCKED by Allegations of Impropriety being used to Damage … to Sabotage … a politician (NOT to say it hasn’t been happening since BEFORE there WAS a USA) … but the first time I was PERSONALLY SHOCKED was when Herman Cain was hounded out of the Presidential Primary by Unproven … subsequently found to be GROUNDLESS Accusations of Impropriety. Later, in reference to “Romney” having NEVER paid taxes, hearing Harry Reid’s response/defense about having made such Groundless Accusations “… We Won, Didn’t We?” (Reported by the Washington Post … “Reid, in an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, not only refusing to apologize for the claim but defending it — in a very weird way.

    “Romney didn’t win, did he?” Reid said in response to Bash’s question of whether he regretted what he had said about Romney”

    Conservatives MUST not allow themselves to be brought down by this kind of thing … They MUST NOT.
    Conservative voters didn’t elect them to simply Run Away at the first sign of Trouble … They elected these people to FIGHT … to do what is necessary to wrest Our Nation from the grasp of those who would, who want, who WILL, DESTROY IT if allowed to do so. These People are WILLING to DESTROY Our Nation … Did You Think that They Would HESITATE to Try to Destroy OUR Representatives?
