Alabama’s interim Senator Doug Jones has been officially condemned by the Alabama State Senate because of his support for late-term abortion. The resolution condemning him comes in response to Jones voting against the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which would have prohibited abortion after the 20th week of a pregnancy.
Republican State Sen. Bill Hightower,who sponsored the measure, explained the reasoning in a public statement:
“Senator Jones owes the people of Alabama an explanation for turning his back on a campaign promise he made just a few short months ago,” Hightower’s statement read. “More importantly, Senator Jones needs to explain why he would turn his back on the basic humanity of an individual’s right to life. At 20 weeks in the womb, it is not about a choice, it is about an innocent little baby’s right to live.”
Hightower went on to explain that the science is clear, “at 20 weeks of pregnancy, a child has a heartbeat, a child feels pain.”
During his campaign for U.S. Senate, Jones had stated he was mostly opposed to late term abortion, stating “the law for decades has been that late-term procedures are generally restricted except in the case of medical necessity. That’s what I support.”
His vote in opposition to a ban on late term abortion in the U.S. Senate clearly shows he has fallen back on his word. That was one of the main points made in the condemnation resolution.
Doug Jones was elected as the interim Senator for Alabama to fill the vacancy left by Jeff Sessions when he joined the Trump Administration as Attorney General. Jones was considered a long-shot candidate prior to the Republican candidate, Judge Roy Moore being smacked with accusations of child sexual assault. Jones had virtually zero chance at winning before the accusations were dropped on Moore.
Judge Moore has strongly denied those claims made against him, and has recently filed a lawsuit against his accusers in order to clear his name.
RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel Privately Doubts Voter Fraud Claims But Wants to Appear Like She’s “Fighting” for the President
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is continuing to differentiate her private and public stances vis-à-vis the contested presidential election and ongoing voter fraud claims.
In a Politico article titled “The Inside Story of Michigan’s Fake Voter Fraud Scandal,” Tim Albert reported that McDaniel has privately expressed her doubts about any “scalable” voter fraud in Michigan, but that she still needs to “demonstrate a willingness to fight” for the president.
McDaniel had previously received the president’s endorsement to remain RNC chair, and as of now she has no serious challengers. But it is possible that a challenger will arise, such as Cory Gardner, a Republican senator from Colorado defeated on November 3 by Democrat John Hickenlooper. He is seen as part of the GOP establishment and, if he were to run, could force McDaniel to fully embrace her pre-Trump “establishment” image once again.
Big League Politics wrote earlier this month about McDaniel’s quiet withdrawal from President Trump and his America First agenda, referencing this New York Times article that describes the fight between Trump and the RNC over voter data.
“Right now, the RNC and the president are in a tug of war over the immense treasure trove of voter data that was collected during the 2020 presidential campaign. Many RNC insiders want to horde the intelligence, which can be used to anoint an establishment-friendly heir apparent to replace Trump, such as former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley or Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas,” Big League Politics’ Shane Trejo wrote.
McDaniel is putting herself in a tough spot. The left sees her as a spreader of “lies” about voter fraud that, in her mind, she knows to be “lies,” while those on the right see her as privately abandoning the president and maintaining a façade.
Either way, RNC leadership is looking very weak both now and for the foreseeable future.
