Roy Moore Drowns in Far Right Conservatism. (Alabama Exit Polls)...

.....and under the weight of abhorrence from the young voters in Alabama enough white women voters to make a difference and formidable black votes at 98% women for Doug Jones while black men voted 93% for Jones.  

Of course, there were other factors which stand as allegations and growing disenchantment with a president who seems far out of his zone of effectiveness (his family and his businesses).  Lest we forget another area of possible (maybe probable) comfort and acuity Interaction with Russian money brokers.

Trump first.

45 in Pensacola on behalf of Roy Moore.

A Moore talking head also finds himself stuck with a major case of mental constipation when faced with facts.

Watch as Trump's number two presstitute and number one Presser disses a question from a long term and very credible White House Press Corp reporter. While not related to Moore, the act of dissing the reporter speaks volumes about Trump and his cabal
Long Version

WH says Trump doesn't owe Sen. Gillibrand an apology and that Trump's tweet only suggestive 'if your mind is in the gutter'
Before we move to NBC's Alabama Exit Polling, take a look and listen to a clear example of GOP bigotry and racism mixed with overdoses of white privilege.
Well, the election is over and the high road prevailed. It was too close for comfort but as Trump indicated (with a small degree of snark) "a win is a win."

Let's take a look at exit polling from last nights earth shaking defeat (or win if you prefer) in Alabama.

Black Votes Matter!

Of course, it took more than the black vote to secure the Doug Jones win. The young voter stepped-up, and enough non-black women stepped-up to carry the election.  

As you view the follow very short video, think about how effective Moore might have been if he had arrived and departed the polling place via a Roy Moore jet vs the prop horse.

Trump's Swamp: Part Three - Tom Price, Lock Her UP, And S.O.B.s

The Swamp 
No automatic alt text available.

Black Meat To His Base

During last nights Trump rally in the GREAT State of Alabama, the bloviating reality TV figure fed red meat (or should I say black meat) to his deep southern audience. I should add his audience seemed 99.99 percent white. Well, why not feed his base with a black man metaphor regarding protest against police abuse of black men? Hey, it sells!

All things said and considered, his remarks embodied the essence of submerging his audience and factions of the GOP neck deep in "the swamp."

Russian And Trump Wins in 2016

America's reality show entertainer president also visited the "Russian Issue." 

The Russia hoax continues, now it's ads on Facebook. What about the totally biased and dishonest Media coverage in favor of Crooked Hillary? 3:44 AM - 22 Sep 2017
You had to know at 3:45 AM the day of the southern rally, Trump was formulating his attacks on Clinton while working to deflect and defray from the Russian election.

Here's how Trump inserted his early morning sleepless Twitter remarks into his audience feed.

Lock Her Up

We won't expend copious verbiage or page space ob the Russian election influence issue as it is clearly obvious behind all of the smoke there is Russian Internet operative support for Trump. Additionally, one would have to be a complete nincompoop to ignore Trumps post-Comey firing comments (to Russian officials) in the Oval Office.  If anyone ignores the reality of Trump's son's meeting with a number of Russians in a meeting advertised as potentially offering smut against Clinton (and his email reaction) well the person is literally a Trump suppository with diminished open-mindedness while also afflicted with their role as a conduit for Trumpism.

Wouldn't you know how Trump's crowd responded?  

During a time when the majority of Trump's cabal is under suspicion or investigation for possible collusion with Russian election fixers (including through a remote Putin), with certain members of his extended cabal named as having worked as facilitators for foreign interests and during a time of a campaign manager with deep ties to Russian oligarchs, the "lock her up" chants appear as an audience entertainment vehicle for the feeble minded.

The rally speech was an hour long entertainment spectacle which over the long run will further solidify his legacy as that of a delusional reality show entertainer who continues to work to grasp a degree of legitimacy while entertaining his base. 

Before ending this piece, let's take a peep at the most obvious example of Trump fueling "the swamp" instead of draining it as he promised with false rhetoric during the 2016 campaign. 

HHS Sec. Tom Price uses private jets for US trips from CNBC.

The swamp is not only not draining, Trump and cabal are feeding the swamp.

Trump's Stadium Fest, White Nationalism And A Look Back At Caesar

Ego maniacs have similar ways of subjugating their minions, supporters and worshipers. Caesar arrives!

The American conservative "king" arrives.
And, the minions (supporter and worshipers) waited hours. The crowd fell well shy of Trumps boasts, but offer ample zeal and camera opportunities.    

Last night Rachel Maddow reported as the Trump oozfest moved to its end.
Bernie Sanders still winning the size contest Donald Trump was able to book a very large venue and draw a decent-sized crowd to his Alabama rally, but he didn't attract a larger gathering than Bernie Sanders did twice on his recent visit to the West Coast.More on why Trump went to Alabama: Rachel Maddow Show airs weeknights at 9pm ETPosted by The Rachel Maddow Show on Saturday, August 22, 2015
We are not certain teh following was part of the Alabama ozzfest, but we are sure of what we hear and it was recorded at a Trump event.

The New York Times reported on the event with comment related to the crowd size falling well shy of forecast (or, should I say Trump carnival barking claim), but high on zeal.

....Still, others said they had plenty of advice for the man they regularly identified in conversation as “Mr. Trump.”
“Hopefully, he’s going to sit there and say, ‘When I become elected president, what we’re going to do is we’re going to make the border a vacation spot, it’s going to cost you $25 for a permit, and then you get $50 for every confirmed kill,’ ” said Jim Sherota, 53, who works for a landscaping company. “That’d be one nice thing.”
It seems some on the Right see Trump as a White Horse Crusader who will accommodate conservative racism, bigotry while providing a guide post for white nationalism (and murder?). One has to wonder if the "zeal filled' reveler from the Times article would place a $35 bounty on 'killed' young immigrants. Or, would the guy pay a full $50 for young dead young immigrant. 

The event met expectations on the Left while offering Trump a foot in the US South (the GOP apple field).  The venue was a sure fired way of garnering a large crowd if a candidate bases his campaign on (first) race and white nationalism. I should add white nationalism with a flair for anxiety to take humans out at the border.

Caesar must remember, there are those in his party will turn against him once he fails to fade away. The GOP is not about support for mavericks their uber wealthy oligarchs cannot control. Trump would have little to no need for political contribution, thus he would exist the anti-archetypal GOP candidates. And, yes some on the Right do not forget his past affinity for the Democrat Donkey.

Et Tu Bruti!

Update: It seems after a bit of digging the voice among Donald Trump's southern stratrgy swing actually was an Alabama "rebel yell" from the less than half filled Mobile Stadium.

Contemptor ran is running a piece (white supremacy rally?)that has tied the knot for my inquisitiveness and uncertainty of teh "White Power" Yell last night or at a previous event.  The real question is will anyone in media question Trump about his thoughts on attracting such a guttural element of US society.

Red State Hospitals "Diss" Pregnant Women Who Need Help!

Re-Blog from ACLU Dot Org.

What a sad state of America when it comes to this?  Just think, what happens if these people takeover the US Senate. Our world be doomed. ~ The Pardu

Alabama Hospitals To Pregnant Women – "Sorry, honey, we won’t help you here."

By Jenny Lee, Staff Attorney, American Civil Liberties Union at 1:13pm
It's what every pregnant woman fears. There she is excited to be pregnant for the first time. She is finally getting over the morning sickness, and she and her husband have just shared the happy news with their friends and family. Then, one night the unimaginable happens. She is lying in bed and she begins to feel immense pain and cramping. She knows something isn't right. She goes to the bathroom and she sees blood. Quickly, she wakes up her husband and the two of them rush to the emergency room. 

All miscarriages can be devastating. But, for women in Alabama, this nightmare could soon get a lot worse. This week, the Alabama Senate is set to consider a cruel bill (HB 31) that would permit the hospital staff, including any doctor, nurse, counselor, or lab technician, to refuse to participate in any phase of patient medical care related to ending a pregnancy, even if that is what a patient like this woman needs to protect her own health and future fertility. 

Yes, you heard that right. Under this law, if you or a loved one is pregnant and go to an emergency room in Alabama because of serious complications, every medical professional in that emergency room could refuse to help you if the care you needed to protect you from serious harm to your health required ending the pregnancy. 

"That can't be true," you say. "How could a doctor at my local hospital turn me away and refuse to treat me? Isn't that malpractice?" 

The Alabama legislature is one step ahead of you. The bill would also protect health care professionals from liability for refusing to provide necessary medical care. What's more, the bill would exempt the hospital from liability under Alabama law. This means that even if the hospitals know that the on-duty doctor won't provide appropriate medical care, Alabama law says that in most cases they have no obligation to find someone who will. In effect, the Alabama legislature is saying to a pregnant woman in distress, "Good luck. You are on your own." 

Fortunately, there is something you can do. We may not all agree about abortion, but we can all agree that people in Alabama deserve the peace of mind of knowing that when they or a loved one go to a hospital seeking emergency care, they will get the medical care they need. Please help get the word out about this dangerous bill. 

Share this blog on Facebook and Twitter, and let politicians know where you stand by signing our pledge to fight back against attacks on women's health. But please act quickly. The House has already passed this dangerous bill and the Senate could take it up any day.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Lindsey Graham Validates Racist Xenophoibc Core


And gets a perfunctory correction from a documented racist Senator from Alabama with a racist past.
