Hey hey hey all you young girls, wherever you’re at

The Soros-funded conspiracy to bring down Roy Moore is remarkably sophisticated:

This past weekend, I spoke or messaged with more than a dozen people—including a major political figure in the state—who told me that they had heard, over the years, that Moore had been banned from the mall because he repeatedly badgered teen-age girls. Some say that they heard this at the time, others in the years since. These people include five members of the local legal community, two cops who worked in the town, several people who hung out at the mall in the early eighties, and a number of former mall employees.

Let’s keep raising money for Doug Jones.

Goal Thermometer

Update. This local piece on Moore’s mall activities is much better sourced than the New Yorker article I linked to above.

If I were a carpenter

This is a defense of Roy Moore:

“Take the Bible. Zachariah and Elizabeth for instance. Zachariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist,” Ziegler said choosing his words carefully before invoking Christ. “Also take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”

“There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here,” Ziegler concluded. “Maybe just a little bit unusual.”

Isn’t it romantic?


The close of the Breitbart article is great too:

The Post is owned by Nash Holdings LLC, a holding company for billionaire Amazon founder and open borders champion Jeffrey Bezos.

The newspaper formally endorsed Moore’s Democratic opponent Doug Jones in the Senate race.

In a series of articles, Breitbart News has documented Jones’s close associations with far-left groups financed by George Soros that push open borders and a host of radical causes.

And it was all yellow

I always thought it seemed likely that a document prepared by a respected MI-6 operative would be pretty accurate anyway, but when I heard Bob Woodward describe the Steele dossier as”garbage”, I figured every fucking word of it was probably true.

Nine months after its first appearance, the set of intelligence reports known as the Steele dossier, one of the most explosive documents in modern political history, is still hanging over Washington, casting a shadow over the Trump administration that has only grown darker as time has gone by.


But as every passing month brings more leaks, revelations in the press, and more progress in the investigations, the Steele dossier has generally gained in credibility, rather than lost it.

Nobody ever went bankrupt overestimating the stupidity of Beltway establishment media.

Hey Kellyanne, what’s your game now can anybody play?

This is funny:

“[Conway] would shill for Trump in extensive fashion and then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off and she would say ‘Blech, I need to take a shower,’ because she disliked her candidate so much,” Brzezinski said Monday.

“‘I have to take a shower because it feels so dirty to be saying what I’m saying,'” Brzezinski described Conway as saying. “I guess she’s just used to it now.”

Honestly who cares what troubles Kellyanne’s beautiful mind, but it might piss Twitler off so I hope it gets a lot of play.

I love you in your big jeans, you give me nice dreams

Matt Bai just can’t quit Chris Christie:

Trump needs a guy like Christie to come in and grab the wheel of this careening presidency, and he needs it to happen now.


But whatever else you want to say about Christie (and I’ve always found him to be a more complicated and gifted politician than his detractors can stand to admit), the man knows how to bring focus to a political operation, and how to advance a governing agenda, and how to balance public bluster with backroom pragmatism.

Chris Christie’s approval rating in New Jersey is nearing single digits. He narrowly avoided time in the clink for his involvement in one of the most widely derided political scandals of our era.

But Matt Bai still loves him. Why weren’t Eliot Spitzer and John Edwards given this post-debacle treatment?

Because they’re democrats, of course.
