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.

Pelosi May Try to Impeach President Trump AGAIN For Nominating a SCOTUS Judge Before Election
Turning impeachment into a partisan joke.
Nancy Pelosi refused to rule out trying to impeach President Donald Trump AGAIN if he nominates a Supreme Court justice to replace the recently deceased Ruth Bader Ginsberg before the November election.
Pelosi was speaking to corporate news operative George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

“Well, we have our options… We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now.” Pelosi was speaking about the possibility of impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr as well as Trump, who has increasingly become a source of extreme frustration for D.C. liberals who desire a Justice Department beholden to their policy priorities.
President Trump has confirmed that he plans on nominating a Justice to fill the vacancy, revealing he’s planning on selecting a woman for the court seat at a North Carolina rally over the weekend.
If Trump nominates a justice who is confirmed and goes on to secure a second term in the November presidential election, a hypothetical second impeachment proceeding could set up a truly hilarious scenario. Democrats would be trying to impeach a President who just secured victory in a democratic election, truly going above and beyond in trying to override the decision of the people.
Perhaps the impeachment powers of the House of Representatives are destined to become merely another partisan, political trick utilized by the Democratic Party against any Republican President. This could basically turn the American political system into a de facto parliamentary system in which the opposition party seeks to impeach the head of state on a routine, political basis.
