Report: Trump Considers Boosting Roy Moore From Afar

  Report: Trump Considers Boosting Roy Moore From Afar While President Donald Trump has been careful to not explicitly endorse Alabama Senate Republican candidate Roy Moore, the White House is weighing its options to help the embattled candidate get elected, according to a new report. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that Trump is “not planning any trip to Alabama at this time,” but the White House is mulling whether to unleash a series of robo-calls, emails and text messages, three people familiar with the conversations told Politico.

Democrats are feeling smugly morally superior right now. They should not.

Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., might be resigning – not because he did anything wrong, though he did. He might be leaving the Senate because it is politically convenient for him to do so.

On sex scandals, Democrats are now the Puritans

  On sex scandals, Democrats are now the Puritans Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore may be a skeevy mall-creeper and President Trump a boastful Lothario, but somehow their transgressions seem less out of character than the same offenses committed by men who have earned a reputation as advocates of gender equality. Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore may be a skeevy mall-creeper and President Trump a boastful Lothario, but somehow their transgressions seem less out of character than the same offenses committed by men who have earned a reputation as advocates of gender equality. Such practitioners of “do as I say not as I do” are tarnished by what Abraham Lincoln called “the base alloy of hypocrisy”.

Despite recent wins , Democrats remain divided about what they stand for : Roy Moore is going to win If that is somehow surprising to you, then The Washington Post has just the article to bring you up to speed: “ Despite Recent Wins , Democrats Remain Divided About What They Stand For .”

A month to go before the election, a controversial outsider candidate, and a report alleging sexual impropriety—what will the GOP do this time?

Do not kid yourself. If Al Franken was all that stood in the way of a Republican majority in the Senate, Democrats would be circling the wagons and attacking his accusers. They would be engaged in the very same activity some Republicans are engaged in over Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore’s accusers.

At this point in American history, moral preening is all about political power, not actually morals. Both parties engage in claiming moral high ground and the media more often than not lets Democrats claim it more easily than Republicans.

So when Roy Moore wins the election for Senate on Tuesday, the media will herald Al Franken as a paragon of virtue for “doing the right thing” (assuming he announces his resignation Thursday), only to use him to assail Republicans.

Lara Trump Is Helping The President Campaign For Moore

  Lara Trump Is Helping The President Campaign For Moore "We need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama,” Trump tweeted on Monday."Hi, this is Lara Trump, calling on behalf of my father-in-law, President Donald Trump," states the recording reported by AL.com on Saturday. "I'm incredibly excited to invite you to an event in your area. A special rally event featuring President Donald Trump will take place on Friday, December 8th at the Pensacola Bay Center.

Roy Stewart Moore (born February 11, 1947) is an American politician and jurist who served as the 27th and 31st Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama.

Erick Erickson: Roy Moore is going to win his Senate race, despite Democrats ' phony claim of moral superiority . Let's say Roy Moore is elected and is seated without an ethics investigation and then Franken turns around and says, 'Well listen, Moore is here.

And yes, Roy Moore is going to win, despite the accusations of sexual misconduct against him from decades ago.

Moore is going to win because of a modern American phenomenon. The news cycle speeds along so fast that the Roy Moore story seems like last year’s news.

Americans have moved on to fired “Today” co-host Matt Lauer; questions about what NBC News executives knew about Matt Lauer’s alleged sexual misconduct;  the resignation of Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich.,  after he was accused of sexual misconduct; and President Trump declaring Jerusalem to be Israel’s capital.

Everyone seems to have forgotten about the accusations of sexual misconduct against Roy Moore except the die-hard partisans.

Moore will also win because Democrats have done their best to make accusations of sexual misconduct a partisan issue. They stood by Conyers until it was politically convenient not to. They stood by Al Franken until it was politically convenient not to. Their walk-backs from Bill Clinton have been opportunistic.

New ad urges Alabama Republicans to write in Nick Saban

  New ad urges Alabama Republicans to write in Nick Saban A liberal group is telling Republican voters in Alabama to write in their choice in this week's special Senate election, using a new ad to explain how they can avoid voting for party nominee Roy Moore –– even if they don't support Democratic nominee Doug Jones. The 15-second digital ad, set to run on Facebook, shows how voters can write in their vote in Tuesday's election instead of selecting one of the listed candidates.

Moral philosophy includes moral ontology, which is the origin of morals ; and moral epistemology, which studies the knowledge of morals . Different systems of expressing morality have been proposed, including deontological ethical systems which adhere to a set of established rules, and normative

Of course, the idea that Democrats could have claimed moral superiority when it comes to the sexual Democrats never intended for Jones to win . After all, if they were serious about competing in Alabama, they They knew that Moore is the Democrats ' caricature of a Republican come to life.

And some of the loudest voices against Roy Moore are now accused of bad behavior themselves. Deeply cynical people in politics, combined with tribal American politics, have poisoned the conversation.

Moore will win his Senate race as well because Washington Republicans have declared him the enemy – and these days, the only thing the Republican base hates more than Democrats are the Washington Republicans who beg for their votes and then break their promises.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., engaging in a bit of cheap moral preening, sent Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, a check declaring it was for “country over party.”

Flake could have stayed out of it. His $100 will not buy Doug Jones even a mail piece. But he is signaling he would rather stand with a man who would gladly round up Alabama guns, fund abortion on demand, and let men into women’s bathrooms in Alabama than stand with a man accused of child molestation.

There is a third choice. Flake could have stayed out of it altogether. Instead, like so many smug, condescending Washington politicians, a man who has aided and abetted the financial and moral bankrupting of America is telling Alabama voters that a vote for a man who loathes their moral values is a vote for “country” – and vote for a man who champions their moral values is a vote for “party.”

Alabama race epitomizes the turbulence of the Trump era

  Alabama race epitomizes the turbulence of the Trump era Alabama's high-stakes Senate election Tuesday perfectly encapsulates how the age of Donald Trump has turned political logic on its head: Republicans may lose by winning and Democrats can win by losing. Republican Roy Moore denies accusations of child molestation, but he's riding the President's endorsement. He's trying to win a seat in a chamber where GOP leaders brand him unfit to serve and fear he could eviscerate their party's brand.

Roy Moore , the Republican running for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, speaks at a campaign And we should fundamentally be valuing women, and that 's where this debate has to go ." It was clear by late Wednesday that Democrats felt sacrificing Franken would allow them to claim moral superiority

Moral superiority is the belief or attitude that one's position and actions are justified by having higher moral values than others. It can refer to: Morality , when two systems of morality are compared. Self-righteousness, when proclamations of moral superiority become a negative personal trait.

The conclusion we should all draw from this is that maintaining moral integrity is a really big deal. But Democrats had very little moral high ground when they called out Roy Moore, because they defended President Clinton for so long for his sexual misconduct. Then it turned out that many of the Hollywood stars they have allied with for years were, for those same years, doing terrible things. So the calls to do something about Roy Moore fell on deaf ears.

Republicans should take note of this. They now have a president who spends his days mean-tweeting and who has his own massive moral failings. Republicans who ignore the Moore situation because of partisan grandstanding by the left will one day be frustrated when no one listens to them. Both sides have cried wolf and turned enough blind eyes that everyone seems to be willfully deaf and blind.

The Christian Church in America should be serving as a prophetic voice at this time. Unfortunately, much of the evangelical community has decided to serve as a wing of the Republican Party. Pastors are more interested in seats as the table of power than rooms in their Father’s house. And it is only going to get worse.

Democrats should be heartbroken that Roy Moore lost .
“Sen. Moore (R-Ala.)” would have been the gift that kept on giving.Poor Al Franken. The Minnesota Democrat was kicked to the curb by a party that, until a few months ago, not only turned a blind eye to sexual misconduct but also lionized serial predators such as Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy. So why was Franken a bridge too far for Democrats? Because he stood in the way of their effort to claim the "moral high ground" when Roy Moore was elected to the United States Senate.
