GOP Establishment Risking Senate Majority By Continuing To Oppose Judge Moore

Alabama conservative Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore has rebounded in the polls and raised over a million dollars in small grassroots contributions as conservative women and faith leaders stood by him and independent analysis showed the yearbook and attendant tales of 40-year old sexual impropriety were not just implausible, but fraudulent.

Todd and PortmanBut the collapse of the allegations against him and Moore’s continued march toward victory in the December 12 Alabama Special Election hasn’t stopped the Republican establishment from attacking him and demanding that he “step aside” as the Republican candidate for Senate.

The latest establishment Republican to demand that the landslide winner of the Alabama Republican primary “step aside” is Ohio Senator Rob Portman.

On Sunday’s “Meet The Press,” Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), said it “would be better for the country” if Alabama GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore stepped aside.

Portman happily took the bait offered by NBC’s serial anti-conservative Chuck Todd who offered-up this incendiary question to set-up Portman’s ridiculous proposal that Moore “step aside’ in favor of a write-in candidate.

TODD: Do you agree with the president that it is better if Alabamians elect someone accused of being a child molester over a democratic simply due to ideology?

PORTMAN: Well, I stand with what I said earlier which is I think it would be best if he stepped aside. I think the president said that initially. I think that would be better for the country. The election is in a few weeks and there is a possibility for folks to do write in candidates. We will see. I think it would be best if he stepped aside.

TODD: If you were a voter in Alabama what would you do? Jeff Flake said he would vote Democrat if Roy Moore was the only other option?

PORTMAN: I would probably vote for a Republican but it wouldn’t be Roy Moore.

TODD: You would cast that vote knowing it probably throws the election, the more Republicans that split their vote. You are okay if a Democrat gets elected as long as it is not Roy Moore?

PORTMAN: As you know I endorsed Luther Strange. He is my colleague now. I never endorsed Roy Moore. When the allegations came out I did say as the women went on the record I thought there was a lot of credibility in what they were saying and I didn’t find the response very credible. And that’s how I came up with my position.

So, let’s break this down:

The election is three weeks away.

Based on his powerful message of cultural conservatism, Roy Moore ran away with the Republican primary even with two other strong candidates in the race.

The allegations against Roy Moore continue to be discredited and to fall apart.

Moore is raising grassroots money and rebounding in the polls and is now at least six points up according to several credible polls.

Democrat Doug Jones is a Far Left radical in the mold of Barack Obama, so putting Jones in the Senate is an unthinkable option for conservatives.

But Senator Rob Portman wants to mount a write-in campaign for a non-existent alternative Republican candidate.

Portman’s remarks on “Meet The Press” demonstrate how truly out-of-touch with political reality – let alone grassroots Alabama – the Republican establishment has become.

There’s an old and very fundamental adage in politics that says, “You can’t beat someone with no one.”

The Republican establishment has no one to run against Roy Moore, even if they wanted to organize a write-in campaign.

And they have no one who can compete with Roy Moore’s conservative – populist message even if they did have a candidate and a real plan to mount a write-in campaign.

However, in the same way that the totally discredited #NeverTrump crowd threw out ridiculous option after ridiculous option in the primary and general election to try to force Donald Trump out of the race, Mitch McConnell, and his do-boys like Rob Portman, are happy to throw out ideas with no basis in political reality – like mounting a write-in for a non-existent candidate – even if carrying out such an idea means throwing the race to the radical Leftist Democrat Doug Jones.

The most powerful slogan in American politics is the simple phrase, “Send them a message.” As the Alabama Senate election approaches conservatives can send the Republican establishment and the DC swamp an unmistakable message by supporting and voting for Judge Roy Moore for Senate.

To “send them a message” is one reason why we urge all CHQ readers in Alabama to vote for Roy Moore in the December 12 Senate election – and if you don’t live in Alabama and can’t vote for Judge Moore you can still send Mitch McConnell, Rob Portman and the rest of the DC swamp a message by donating directly to Judge Moore’s campaign through this link.

Mensheviks STILL Live in a Dream World!

The French have a saying: "The more things change, the more they stay the same." Just as the Russian Mensheviks in 1917-1918 falsely believed that the Bolsheviks under Lenin would be gentlemen and give their vision of a "kinder, gentler socialism" a chance, so now the modern American Mensheviks like Jeff Flake, John McCain and Mitch McConnell think the "Democrats" will be gentlemen if they make nice with them. Let's hope that Roy Moore and his supporters won't give them a chance to test that theory. If so, it will prove Karl Marx correct when he said "History always repeats itself: the first time as tragedy (Russia in 1917-1918); the second time as farce (USA in 2017-2018)." (Parenthetical comments added).

The Republican leadership

The Republican leadership establishment are concerned with nothing but their own power. They'd rather elect a Democrat than a Republican they can't control, even it it would cost them the majority. Their control over the party is based on their ability to sell government to their contributors, and use the money to elect people to Congress who will vote with the leadership whenever their votes are needed. Any Republican congressman, or senator who can't be depended on to support the leadership undermines their ability to deliver for their contributors, lessens the value of financially supporting them, and endangers their hold power.

Republican majority

I do not always agree with every position that the republicans take but I have long believed that the individual member in Congress only believes strongly about any issue as it pertains to their own re-election.
They should have from the beginning not commented on the Roy Moore allegations but rather stated that the claims against him are just that, claims and should be dealt with in the courts as Roy Moore as any American citizens has the right to be viewed as innocent until proven guilty. Not to mention that Roy Moore is not a member of Congress and that if he wins the election that would be the time for comment on the issue, not before he is elected.
