Trump Endorses Roy Moore

December 4, 2017

Trump Endorses Roy Moore

While his daughter Ivanka endorsed “a special place in Hell” for alleged Alabama child molester Roy Moore, her father, connoisseur of first-rate pussy and  Molester-In-Chief Donald Trump, has now openly endorsed defrocked judge Moore for the U.S. Senate.

Mr. Trump called the candidate from Air Force One and told him “I Like a fighter … go get ’em, Roy!” Presumably that referred to his Democratic opponent and not teenage girls at the shopping mall.

Update:

Ray Moore: ‘Good Morning Little Schoolgirl!’

November 17, 2017

In 1977, Gena Richardson was a high school senior working in the men’s department of Sears at the Gadsden Mall when Roy Moore introduce himself:

“Moore, she says, asked where she went to school before asking for her phone number. Richardson declined to give it to him, telling Moore that her dad was a Southern Baptist preacher, and wouldn’t allow them to date. Moore was a 30-year-old lawyer working in his hometown of Gadsden at the time. A few days after their first encounter, Moore called Richardson’s school to try and ask her out again. From the [WashingtonPost:

‘A few days later, she says, she was in trigonometry class at Gadsden High when she was summoned to the principal’s office over the intercom in her classroom. She had a phone call. “I said ‘Hello?’ Richardson recalls. “And the male on the other line said, ‘Gena, this is Roy Moore.’ I was like, ‘What?!’ He said, ‘What are you doing?’ I said, ‘I’m in trig class.’ ”

Richardson says Moore asked her out again on the call. A few days later, after he asked her out at Sears, she relented and agreed, feeling both nervous and flattered. They met that night at a movie theater in the mall after she got off work, a date that ended with Moore driving her to her car in a dark parking lot behind Sears and giving her what she called an unwanted, “forceful” kiss that left her scared.’

Moore’s pursuit of Richardson at the Gadsden mall wasn’t unique, according to the Post’s reporting. Eventually, Richardson would hide when Moore came into the store, and the manager at the store would tell new hires to “watch out for” Moore. Kayla McLaughlin, a classmate and co-worker of Richardson’s, corroborated her story to the Post.”

Roy Moore, Shopping Mall Romeo

November 16, 2017

Roy Moore, Shopping Mall Romeo

Roy Moore, defrocked judge and gun-slingingtheocraticracist homophobe, is currently the Republican candidate for Jeff Sessions’ old U.S. Senate seat. He’s also been accused of sexually molesting teenage girls when he was a 32 year old assistant district attorney. Five women have come forward so far. He was a persistent creep, hitting on teenybopper shoppers, waitresses and clerks, and was finally banned from the Gadsden Mall. As Jennifer Rubin points out, if Roy Moore can be banned from a shopping mall, he can be kept out of the U.S. Senate. Most Americans, the RNC, and Republican leaders agree, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is preparing for that possibility.

The Alabama Special Election is on December 12th.

The Underage Loves of Roy Moore

November 14, 2017

The Underage Loves of Roy Moore
If you don’t know yet, Twice-defrocked Alabama judge and gun-slinging theocratic racist homophobe Roy Moore, currently Alabama’s Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, has been accused of sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl. He was 32 years old at the time and an assistant district attorney. Three other women have claimed he tried to make it with them when they were teens, too, and he plied one with wine when she was underage. There have been rumors of Mr. Moore’s “woman issues” for years, and a former colleague says it was common knowledge he dated high school girls.

Roy Moore has said he “didn’t generally” date teenage girls when he was in this thirties, attacked and threatened to sue the Washington Post for running the story (reported by three women), and started raising money behind the scandal (the GOP has cut off his funding). Yesterday another woman came forward and described in detail how Mr. Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16 and threatened her to keep her quiet. He can’t say he didn’t know her then since he signed her high school yearbook. Said Mitch McConnell: “I believe the women, yes.” That’s when Republican officeholders stopped hedging and called for the candidate to withdraw. He isn’t going to quit the race, though, and might even win it, since his evangelical Alabama base would rather vote for a child molester than a Democrat. If Roy Moore is elected, there’s a good chance the senate would expel him.

The Alabama Special Election is on December 12th.

Roy Moore, Christian Warrior

November 10, 2017

Roy Moore, Christian Warrior

Twice-defrocked Alabama judge, evolution-denying theocratic birther neo-confederate racist homophobe and all-around Christian Culture Warrior Roy Moore, now Alabama’s Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, has been accused of taking sexual liberties with a 14-year-old girl. He was 32-years old at the time and an assistant district attorney. Three other women have claimed he tried to make it with them when they were teens, too, and he plied one with wine when she was underage. No young boys have come forward (so far).

In response to these charges, Judge Moore blames the messenger, the Washington Post (Attention Jeff Bezos: this guy carries a gun),

“If these allegations are true, he must step aside,” said Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on behalf of all Republican senators. GOP senators saying “Amen” include Jeff Flake and John McCain of Arizona, David Perdue of Georgia, John Thune of South Dakota, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Richard C. Shelby of Alabama and Patrick J. Toomey of Pennsylvania. Mr. Moore is running to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions,  and refuses to debate his Democratic opponent, former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones.

Since his removal from the bench, Roy Moore has been handsomely (if surreptitiously) compensated though a nonprofit outfit he founded, now run by his wife, called  the “Foundation for Moral Law.” His daughter is on the board of directors, and his son, well-known to Alabama’s police, was an employee. Roy Moore believes in family values.

In Spring, a Panda's Thoughts Turn To ....

The Smithsonian National Zoo reports that panda daddy Tian Tian is “in full rut,” scent-marking, rolling around, and bleating at panda momma Mei Xiang, who is restlessness but not really into it: “She often responds to Tian Tian’s calls with a moan vocalization that indicates she is not interested in him just yet.”

The female panda only goes into heat for at most 3 days a year, leaving 362 when she’s JUST NOT IN THE MOOD thankyouverymuch. Pass the bamboo, please.

Carlos Danger Rides Again — Into Bachelorhood

August 30, 2016

Carlos Danger Rides Again -- Into Bachelorhood
Disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner (aka Carlos Danger) was caught with his pants down again, outed by the New York Post for sending sexty photos to strange women. His wife, foreign relations pro and Hillary campaign advisor Huma Abedin, invoked the 3-strikes-you’re-out rule and announced the couple’s separation.

Since quitting Congress and losing a local election in New York City, Anthony Weiner has been a commentator for Time-Warner cable news outlet NY 1 and a columnist for the New York Daily News. The TV outfit has put him on “indefinite leave,” and the Daily News cut him loose.

Serial adulterer and Anthony Weiner campaign contributor Donald Trump expressed sympathy for Ms. Abedin and smeared her boss Hillary Clinton in a single tweet. Anthony Weiner should remind his pal Mr. Trump how dangerous Twitter can be.

“Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin says she’s separating with Anthony Weiner amid third sexting scandal,” Jeff Stein, Vox

“Trump sees personal tragedy and embarrassment as just political fodder,” Ruth Marcus, Washington Post

“Don’t Expect Donald Trump to Stop Lying About Huma Abedin,” Robert Mackey, The Intercept

Pentagon Won’t Punish ‘Pillow-Talk’ Petraeus

Pentagon Won’t Punish 'Pillow-Talk' Petraeus
David Petraeus, who resigned as CIA director after revelations he’d shared classified information with his mistress and biographer, Paula Broadwell, won’t be punished any further by the Pentagon, reported the Washington Post. General Petraeus pleaded guilty to a single count of unauthorized use of classified material last year in a …, um, “sweetheart deal.” Now he won’t even be demoted and will continue to receive a four-star general’s retirement benefits, including a pension of nearly $220,000 a year.

Petraeus Pillow Talk Plea

David Petraeus, who resigned as CIA director after 2012 revelations that he’d shared classified information with Paula Broadwell, his mistress and biographer, will plead guilty to a single count of unauthorized use of classified material, and faces up to a year in jail. Perhaps General P. can continue to advise the White House on Middle East policy from prison, since that’s a pretty secure location.

Eliot Spitzer and Girlfriend Shock Jamaica

According to the New York Post, the Big Apple’s tabloid rag of record, amorous antics in a hot tub by former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer and gal pal Lis Smith shocked fellow guests at a hotel in Jamaica’s Montego Bay.  At another hostelry, the Mayflower Hotel here in DC, Mr. Spitzer is better known as “Client Number 9.”

Lis Smith, former spokesperson for NYC’s new Mayor Bill DeBlasio, has recently been the constant companion of Mr. Spitzer who, for now, is wed to another. Ms. Smith worked on Mr. Spitzer’s failed campaign for New York City Comptroller.
