Default Christian-zionist, Moore, beats globalist backed by Trump and Rinos, Strange, in Ala. Senate primary

BREAKING: Moore Expected To Defeat Strange In Alabama Primary Runoff

On Tuesday, exit polls showed that Alabama Senator Luther Strange would likely be ousted in a special election primary by Judge Roy Moore, the controversial former jurist most famous for refusing to abide by court rulings attempting to force the removal of a Ten Commandments display from his courthouse, and instructing probate judges not to comply with court orders to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Moore resigned from the bench in 2016 and announced he would run for the Senate.

Strange was considered an ally of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) — not because he was an establishment lackey, per se, but because he worked with McConnell in the Senate in the first place. President Trump himself said that Strange wasn’t friendly with McConnell, stating, “he doesn’t even know Mitch McConnell.” Nonetheless, grassroots conservatives rallied around Moore. Interestingly, while Trump campaigned ardently for Strange — he was campaigning for Strange when he dropped his latest bombshell on the NFL — Trump’s former White House chief strategist, Steve Bannon, campaigned just as ardently against Strange and for Moore. Trump, true to form, admitted on Friday that he might have made a mistake getting involved in the primary at all, stating, “I might have made a mistake. I'll be honest, I might have made a mistake.”

The special election is a fascinating look into the battle over “Trumpism” as a movement and a philosophy. One of the conceits of Trump’s most ardent supporters is that Trump is the leader of a movement rather than a cork bobbing on the waves of popular discontent with Washington, D.C. Alabama’s special election seems to debunk that notion — Trump couldn’t even defeat his heretofore anonymous former campaign chief strategist in that election. Trump doesn’t have coattails. Bannon presented himself as the avatar of Trump’s heart…against Trump himself. And Trump lost.

The reality is that the election had nothing to do with Trump or Trumpism, which is an attempt to put a face to an incoherent mishmash of ideas. The election had to do with a continuing backlash against the establishment Republican Party that began with the Tea Party in 2010, built with support for politicians like Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and culminated in Trump’s victory in the primaries and general election. In other words, this election shows that Trump is not more important than the movement that preceded him and drove him into office, and that Trumpism isn’t anything at all — Moore would have won in 2012 if this election had taken place then, long before Trump considered running.

Practically speaking, Mitch McConnell is the man hardest hit. He’s already got a fractious caucus; now a senator who voted for his top priorities will be replaced by a bombastic figure known for going rogue. That means that McConnell’s tightrope is even tougher to walk — and it means that Trump is even more likely to buck his own Senate and walk across the aisle to his good friends Nancy and Chuck. In the long run, however, it means that the anti-establishment movement will be looking to replace outgoing Republicans. The face of the Republican Party will soon start to resemble the heart that’s been driving votes for the last seven years.

ANALYSIS: Trumpism rolls over Trump in Alabama Senate race

Even Trump can’t control Trumpism.

The sweeping victory by Roy Moore in the Alabama GOP runoff is the first major electoral defeat for Trump, who endorsed and campaigned for appointed Sen. Luther Strange. It’s arguably a bigger loss for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, whose super PAC dumped millions into the race in a losing attempt to beat back a challenger he feared would make a difficult senator.

The Alabama Senate runoff leaves fragile governing coalitions with an even more tenuous grasp on power, leaving the Trump agenda in further peril and reordering the 2018 landscape. Still, the scrambling of political loyalties and agendas just might be a development President Trump would welcome.

This is a setback with consequences as nuanced as the odd circumstances that left Trump and McConnell on the same side of this peculiar race in the first place. Among the big winners is Steve Bannon, the president’s former chief strategist, who gambled that he and his allies could help beat back the president’s own pick in a state where Trump is deeply popular.

Bannon directly addressed the Republican establishment in his election-eve appearance for Moore, naming McConnell, Karl Rove, and other GOP leaders who supported Strange in suggesting that a movement is only building: “They think you’re a pack of morons. They think you’re nothing but rubes.”

Moore’s primary victory will invite Democrats to invest in a deep-red state in advance of the December general election. But the likeliest final outcome will be the addition a Republican senator with a famously combative streak that figures to have him frustrating legislative efforts.

Moore in the Senate will leave McConnell with yet another hard-to-corral member of his caucus -– maybe one more difficult to get in line than even Rand Paul or Ted Cruz. And the fear of further far-right primary challengers could make McConnell’s job even harder, while also convincing more Republicans in the House and Senate to contemplate retirement.

On Tuesday, while polls were still open in Alabama, the first GOP senator this cycle announced that he’s stepping down at the end of his term. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., announced he’s leaving the Senate just a day after reports indicated that Bannon had met with a potential primary challenger.

Trump stumps for Strange in Alabama but says he'll campaign for Moore if he wins

Those close to Trump expect him to lash out at McConnell over the loss, particularly after Senate Republicans fell short yet again in efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare. The setback could also convince him to go with his gut in other Senate races, including involving in emerging primary races where incumbent Republicans in Arizona and Nevada are facing pro-Trump challengers.

It’s exceedingly unlikely that this particular confluence of events will present themselves again, in 2018 or basically ever. Trump and McConnell put their combined political weight behind Strange, who was appointed by a governor who has since resigned in scandal, out of loyalty and a hope that he would offer more predictable support for the GOP agenda.

Lining up against Trump were Bannon and other anti-establishment figures, including another former White House aide, Sebastian Gorka, and Sarah Palin.

Trump seemed to second-guess his endorsement on Friday, in a campaign rally that of course got overshadowed by his comments about the NFL.

“I might have made a mistake," Trump told the crowd at the rally. "They're going to say, ‘Donald Trump, the president of the United States, was unable to pull his candidate across the line. It is a terrible, terrible moment for Trump. This is total embarrassment.’ ”

All that may be said, along with the fact that there is not likely to be another Senate candidate quite as colorful as Moore. Twice he was forced off the state Supreme Court because he defied federal court edicts.

He has said homosexual conduct should be illegal and that he believes President Obama was not born in the United States. At his own election-eve rally, he whipped out a gun to demonstrate his support for the Second Amendment.

Fundamentally, though he praises Trump effusively, he may not be a reliable vote for Trump’s agenda. Moore has developed a reputation as an ideologue, whereas the president by nature is a dealmaker.

Few expect the president to do anything but declare victory, in a race where both Republicans raced to be more pro-Trump. But this victory will carry severe consequences for policy, while pointing to the limits the president himself faces in corralling the forces that propelled him to office.

Roy Moore Defeats Paul Singer, Jared Kushner and the Money Power in the Alabama Senate primary

Link: https://revisionistreview.blogspot.c...n-alabama.html

By Michael Hoffman • RevisionistHistory.org

Tens of millions of dollars were donated to the aptly named Luther Strange in his Donald Trump-endorsed attempt to defeat staunch Christian Roy Moore in the Republican primary for US Senate in Alabama on September 26.

The 70-year-old Moore is the former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, which is an elected office in that state. He was twice removed from the court by the machinations of lawyers and politicians: first for refusing to dismantle a Ten Commandments memorial from the courthouse and again, after being reelected by the people of Alabama, for stating that God’s law trumps man’s law when it comes to rejecting the judicial abomination lately known as “gay marriage”—the Supreme Court-licensed perversion unprecedented in the history of western civilization. For his exemplary refusal to cooperate with the homosexual rights’ revolution, the media, with their typical abuse of the English language, stigmatize Moore as an “extremist.” To oppose a revolution is an act of conservation, not extremism, but try telling that to the grand wizards of word jugglery.

Dr. Chuck Baldwin, himself a former candidate for President of the United States and a personal friend of Judge Moore, provided details on how Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor, President George W. Bush and swamp denizen Karl Rove moved against Moore. This is first person history and recommended reading. Baldwin relates how Bush awarded Pryor’s treachery against Moore with a federal judgeship. Message: betray true Christians and you will receive lucrative emoluments made possible by the visible heads of what is otherwise a cryptocracy.

In addition to Chuck Baldwin, we contributed in our way to Moore’s campaign by identifying and exposing one of the largest donors to Sen. Mitch McConnell’s Republican super pac which funded Strange: Paul Singer, a billionaire American-Israeli fanatic and militant homosexual rights campaigner who believes in protective walls for the Israelis while funding open borders for the U.S. This crocodile is the typical well-heeled “Republican” donor for whom the swamp is habitat.

Moreover, while the New York Times did not investigate the criminal politics behind Strange’s appointment to Jeff Sessions’ vacated Senate seat, it did at least allude to it in today’s (September 27) edition:

"Strange’s demise was in some respects as much a local phenomenon as a national one, stemming from his appointment this year by then-Gov. Robert Bentley to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Mr. Strange, the state’s attorney general at the time, was overseeing an investigation into Mr. Bentley’s personal relationship with a close aide, suggesting to many in a scandal-weary state that there may have been a corrupt bargain. The newly appointed senator denied any wrongdoing, but never fully confronted the issue in a way that would eliminate the lingering cloud over the appointment.”

The Times reported further: "Mr. Moore’s incendiary rhetoric will also oblige others in the GOP to answer for his comments, perhaps for years to come, at a time when many Republicans would just as soon move on from the debate over gay rights."

Think of it: “many Republicans” would just as soon accept ("move on from") the revolutionary overthrow of the Biblical institution of marriage by the legalization of the sham "marriage" of homosexuals. The GOP leadership are eager to accept as settled law a defiant act of rebellion against God which spells the beginning of the end of our civilization. Hey, that’s politics! Democrats initiate revolution and the Republican Establishment pretends to “resist” by acquiescing to it gradually rather than immediately.

The Republican Money Power men (Jared Kushner, Karl Rove, Mitch McConnell, Paul Singer, John McCain) are not concerned with the immutable morality of the Bible. These Republicans desire to accommodate evil for the sake of gaining more power, more money and the blessing of the mainstream media.

In the midst of this political swamp a man like Roy Moore appears like an alien from Mars. Establishment Republicans can't understand a guy who won't make a deal with the devil, as they have.

Judge Moore stated that he never prayed to win his primary campaign. He only prayed that God’s will be done. Coming from most politicians we would laugh at them for expecting us to believe that a selfless act like that really took place. Based on his past record of courage and conscience proving Moore’s character however, we do believe it — and we pray he wins a Senate seat December 12, against the Democrat Party’s nominee, Doug Jones, another former prosecutor.
