Recent polling shows many Alabamians now believe former Chief Justice Roy Moore was the target of a last-minute D.C. and media driven smear campaign that included both an elaborate disinformation campaign and a closely coordinated volley of apparently baseless accusations of sexual assault.
As the 2020 elections draw closer, former Judge Roy Moore — a victim of outright defamatory lies and outright character assassination in the 2017 primaries — is gaining traction with a very important group of Alabama voters, according to reports.
The “Ten Commandments” judge now boasts significant support among white voters, who supported Moore by 68 percent in 2017 and believe he was subject to a smear campaign. A CBS News poll from December, 2017 found that 71 percent of Republican voters believed the allegations were false.
And now? 92 percent of Republicans who don’t believe the allegations against Moore said the Democrats are behind the charges, and 88 percent said newspapers and the media are behind them, CBS reports.
“A poll by Mason-Dixon Polling and Strategy published Tuesday found that 27 percent of Republicans polled would support Roy Moore’s candidacy in the 2020 election.
Alabama Reps. Mo Brooks, Bradley Byrne and Gary Palmer all fall far behind Moore, while Del Marsh and Tim James come in under ten percent in the new poll.
And, following the release of evidence proving that Democrats uses “Russiabots” to decieve the Alabama electorate, Moore also gained the lead with Republican likely women voters — 31 percent of whom said they would support the former judge.
Even Lisa Hagen has to admit the trend. She tweeted:
Unrelated Mueller news: Rep. Mo Brooks won't run for Alabama Senate seat again. 2020 GOP field is still shaking out, with Rep. Bradley Byrne in and former Judge Roy Moore "seriously considering" another run #ALSenhttps://t.co/uW3sfbidwL

The poll also found that over half of likely voters would vote to replace Democratic Sen. Doug Jones:
… 45 percent of Alabama voters believe Jones is doing a good job in the Senate, while 44 percent disapprove of his performance. Fifty percent of voters said that they would vote to replace him, as opposed to 40 percent who said they would vote to re-elect him. Alabama is a predominantly Republican state.
As we previously reported, Sen. Doug Jones benefited from the infamous “Project Birmingham” that Washington Post and New York Times exposed as an illegal “false flag” operation that boosted Democrat participation in the Alabama U.S. Senate race in 2017.
In its report titled, “Secret campaign to use Russian-inspired tactics in 2017 Ala. election stirs anxiety for Democrats,” on January 6, 2019, WaPo reported:
Project Birmingham got its funding from Internet billionaire Reid Hoffman, who emerged as a leading underwriter of Democratic causes after the 2016 election … Hoffman gave $750,000 to a progressive technology start-up called American Engagement Technologies — founded by Mikey Dickerson, a former Obama administration official … This person said Dickerson used $100,000 of that to hire New Knowledge, a Texas-based social media research firm, to work in Alabama in support of Jones during the special election in December 2017.
It gets worse. “I received the report in early 2018, which is when I first learned about the false flag and write-in tactics,” Dickerson said in his statement, his first public comment on the controversy.
What is known about Project Birmingham comes mainly from the 12-page document labeled “Project Birmingham Debrief,” which describes the criminal conspiracy as “a digital messaging operation to influence the outcome of the AL senate race” by targeting 650,000 likely voters with messages on social media platforms such as Facebook, while obscuring the fact that the messages were coming from pro-Jones sources.
The stated goal was to “radicalize Democrats, suppress unpersuadable Republicans (“hard Rs”) and faction moderate Republicans by advocating for write-in candidates.”
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
