Should We Defend Roy Moore or Not

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. read more

Video Podcast – Louis C.K. Admits Wrongdoing – Democracy on the Orville

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Comedian Louis C.K. did something not have. When presented with accusations of sexual misconduct and overall lewd behavior, he admitted that all the accusation were true. That’s astounding considering that the other Hollywood dirtbags are either denying or just running away. I explore this phenomenon.

A television program called the Orville is created, written and stars comedian Seth MacFarlane. It’s like Star Trek with some comedy. One episode was particularly fascinating as it dealt with democracy. Not democracy as many Americans think, but true democracy – as in mob rule. Only this time the mob all have smart phones. read more

Roy Moore is Tried and Convicted in the Court of Public Opinion

Did Alabama Senate candidate, Republican Roy Moore do it or not? Did he do what the woman, Leigh Corfman, accused him of doing some 38 years ago? Is he guilty of sexual misconduct with a minor or not?

Well, I don’t know, and neither does anyone else, save for Moore and Corfman.

But reading Corfman’s account of the events struck me as odd, as did the timing.

The girl says that Moore met her and her mother on a bench outside a courtroom one day in 1979 – a mere 38 years ago.

“He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing,” writes the Washington Post. “He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’ ” says Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71. “I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl.”

A man that neither of them knows strikes up a conversation with Leigh and her mother outside a courtroom, offers to watch the daughter and the mother thinks nothing of it? I’m sorry, but even in 1979 this seems a little strange, not to mention the detail of what was said almost 40 years later. read more

Trump Suffers the Indignity of Multiple Accusers – Much the Way Cruz Did

Recall that this past March saw the National Enquirer print a story that Ted Cruz had five mistresses.

What ever happened to the extramarital affair story? There appears to have been no follow-up. We haven’t heard a peep from the supposed five. The story just vanished. This would lead any reasonable person to think that the story was bogus and his buddy at the Enquirer merely made it up to help advance Trump across the primary finish line.

At the time, few really believed that clean cut, nerdy Cruz had the chops to have even one mistress, let alone five. On the other hand, plenty believed that Trump had at least something to do with the Enquirer story.

For one, Trump and Enquirer chief executive David Pecker are evidently very close. So close in fact that Pecker has used Trump’s private jet to fly from New York to Florida to meet with Trump in the past. And two, that Trump is the polar opposite of Cruz and that he would have no problem playing dirty politics.

This, you might say, was Trump’s October surprise they pulled out to use against Cruz to help seal his fate.

Recalling this, it comes as a bit of a surprise to hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth by the Trump people that the “media” are conspiring with the Clinton campaign to trot out all these supposed victims of Trump abuse after all these years. read more
