Alabama Media Still Propping Up Doug Jones, Spreading Disinformation About Judge Moore

Jones has been taking swipes at Moore with the help of the Alabama media.

Monday, the media in Alabama continued its mission to prop up Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) and spread disinformation about Judge Roy S. Moore, who is considering another Senate run in 2020.

Yellow Hammer, a popular political news outlet in Alabama, ran a story with a thumbnail photo suggesting that Moore was thrown out of the Gadsden Mall for improper behavior around young women. That was a campaign lie told in 2017 which has been debunked by the mall owner himself. Still, Yellow Hammer drudged up the old chestnut while propping up the Democrat Senator.

“Oh, what I think is really – it’s really truly almost comical to watch,” Jones said in an ABC interview which Yellow Hammer quoted in its piece. “Because I have always believed that Moore is doing this more to raise money. That’s been his M.O. for years. I don’t know if he’ll run or not, but I think this is a fundraising tool for him.”

“What’s been comical is to watch all the other Republicans, who supported him lock-step, you know, put their party over their country two years ago, are now wringing their hands going, ‘Oh my God, what are we going to do?’ Because there’s this anybody but Roy Moore thing out there. So, it’s interesting for me to watch. But I only watch it, and I don’t care,” he continued.

Jones has spent a good deal of time bashing the Judge recently, despite no official announcement from Moore that he is running for office.

“It doesn’t matter to me who the opponent is,” Jones said. “I’ll be back here for another term.”

All his Doug Jones’s about Judge Moore tells a different story.

While Jones’ approval rating has tanked since his election, he has learned the art of identity politics, likely from his Democratic Party colleagues. He has claimed that Republicans don’t want black people to vote, and that whoever he runs against “will run a campaign on division.”

Yellow Hammer did not immediately respond to a comment request.

Arizona’s Paul Gosar Proposes Amending Coronavirus Package to Replace Pork with $10,000 Stimulus Checks

Gosar wants direct aid to the American people.

Published

on

Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona has proposed that the federal government pay stimulus checks of $10,000 to Americans beleaguered by the coronavirus pandemic, adopting an approach that would prioritize direct payments to individuals over payments to state and local governments. Gosar’s Amendment, offered on Friday night, would also replace payments to extend federal unemployment benefits.

As the American Rescue Plan currently stands, $1,400 stimulus checks to American taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in income in 2018 make up $422 billion- a mere 22% of the total spending in the relief package. Gosar’s proposal would replace much of the questionable spending with direct relief.

If the federal government intends to go ‘all-in’ on deficit spending in response to the coronavirus recession, Gosar’s proposal would ensure that the money is spent directly on the livelihood of American taxpayers. Less than half of the spending of Biden’s stimulus is directly targeted towards taxpayers, with education, energy, transport and state governments receiving almost as much money as the American people under Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan.

Biden’s pork proposal can easily be retooled to prioritize direct spending to Americans, be it in the shape of stimulus checks or buffed unemployment benefits to Americans who have lost their jobs in the recession. Instead, the establishment Democrat has opted to prioritize payments to powerful lobby groups and corporate institutions.

The American Rescue Plan passed the House in a Friday night vote. Should the massive spending package fail to pass the Senate in budget reconciliation, congressional leaders may be left with no choice but to consider proposals such as Gosar that replace federal spending with direct relief to the American people.
