FACT CHECK: Mainstream Media Falsely Calls Trenton Garmon “Roy Moore’s lawyer”

FACT CHECK: The mainstream media is lying about Judge Moore again.

Published

on

AL.com, an Alabama online news site, falsely reported yesterday the false claim that Trenton Garmon, who was arrested Wednesday this week, is Judge “Roy Moore’s lawyer.”

The false claim that Garmon is “Judge Moore’s lawyer” was subsequently reported by many other news outlets, including The Daily Caller, The Hill, a Chelsea Clinton associated online blog known as The Daily Beast, and a widely discredited online gutter known as Democratic Underground.

Donald Trump Jr. even repeated the lie, which was giddily reported by failing, formerly out-of-print web site known as “NewsWeek.”

The famed Alabama “Ten Commandments Judge” took to twitter to disputes media claims of current association.

The “Ten Commandments judge” called the reports on the arrest of his former attorney “fake news” in a Thursday afternoon tweet.

“Mr. Garmon has not represented me or our family for quite some time. As a friend, I will pray for him through his personal difficulties,” Moore subsequently said in a statement.

Garmon very briefly worked for Moore during his  bid for the U.S. senate last year, is being held in county jail on bail totaling $3,000.

The Foundation for Moral Law retained Trent Garmon in November 2017 to fight the smears and now discredited charges against the Alabama statesman. Moore was focused on his December 12 election was not an intimate connection of Trent’s, nor a close personal friend.

Garmon has sent a “cease and desist” letter to Alabama Media Group demanding they retract their false reporting about Moore.

Garmon’s “cease and desist” letter allegedly contained grammatical incongruencies and what some in the media jumped the gun to call “incoherence,” though many reasons for typographical or grammatical errors can be given, and a typo is not material evidence of drug abuse. But others in the mainstream media began reporting on his incoherence.

Then, the thoroughly discredited Washington Post — certainly on anything pertaining to Moore — began skewering Garmon’s less-than-smooth interviews, which it called “bizzare.” Before long, Garmon’s alleged personal challenges were absorbed into the left-media echo chamber, and Garmon’s supposed substance abuse became “common knowledge.”

Garmon also filed suit against against the Highway 31 super PAC, which was the very last document on file that Mr. Garmon has filed in favor of representing Judge Moore, according to sources.

It was shortly after Garmon filed the aforementioned complaint that Moore and his campaign team released him from all cases.

In Gadsden, Ala. Garmon had his license suspended. Garmon sued the Alabama Department of Public Safety in retaliation, and in his affidavit, he calls himself a “safe and competent driver,” but then proceeds to volunteer information on another occasion wherein he was arrested, this time in Florida, for driving under the influence. The attorney suggests he was “literally taking a nap on the side of the road.”

“I will try that DUI if it is not lowered to reckless driving and I would only be pleading to reckless driving to make it go away given arriving safely to take a nap less than 200 yards from our home indicates that I was not reckless and was in fact taking a nap before meeting with company who was at our home,” Garmon said in the affidavit.

“Trenton Roger Garmon, 39, was booked into the Etowah County Jail around 8 p.m., according to jail records. He was arrested by Gadsden police and charged with driving under the influence of controlled substances, second-degree possession of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia,” reported AL.com.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?

Published

on

Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?

Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.

Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”

However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.

The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.

In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.

One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.

The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”

The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”

Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”

Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.

His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”

Sanders responded, “Yes.”

Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.

All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.

Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
