McConnell, Most Senate Republicans Sided with Democrats, WaPo Against Judge Roy Moore

Published

on

Within minutes of the now widely discredited Washington Post article which lobbed entirely unsubstantiated claims at Judge Roy Moore, a whole host of Republican U.S. Senators, including Mitch McConnell, called on Judge Moore to step aside if the allegations were true, as noted in the tweet below.

Many observers of the Alabama special election, including Jesse Lee Peterson, immediately saw through the ruse, and, citing the questionable timing of the Washington Post hit piece, put forth the common sense response that anyone accused of such serious crimes — especially someone like Judge Roy Moore, who’d lived his entire life under the microscope of hostile political opponents — should be given the benefit of the doubt and innocence should be presumed.

Astute observers also sniffed out Republican involvement in the smear campaign.

Naturally, Chamber of Commerce-aligned Fox News rushed to carry water for the establishment Republicans and amplified the Majority Leader’s call for Moore to step aside. Fox News had also rushed to report the liberal Bezos owned Washington Post’s report earlier that day.
After pushing their narrative all weekend, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sought out TV cameras to tell the nation he thought Roy Moore should step down, logically making way for pro-abortion Democrat Doug Jones.
Republican scribe George F. Will even endorsed pro-abortion, open-border Democrat Doug Jones.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

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.
