US Senate candidate from Alabama Judge Roy Moore received a standing ovation from supporters at a public library following the Washington Post hit piece earlier this week.
This was the first public event Moore has spoke at since the smear piece came out, and already this has his base energized as the CIA-tied WaPo story and credibility are starting to come unraveled.
Moore gave a rousing speech just outside Birmingham on Saturday morning to supporters and veterans in honor of Veterans Day, in which he took about 30 minutes to stand for the principles of Constitutional government.
His comments came near the end of his address.
“Now I want to address something that some people have come here to hear about,” Moore said to supporters.
He then turned his attention to a crowd of reporters who made their way to the event to hear what he had to say, and he gave it to them.
“Shortly after becoming the Republican nominee for the United States Senate, the Washington Post began an attack on the Foundation for Moral Law, on my wife, and on me,” Moore said. “For weeks, we read about my salary which they distorted, about taxes where they said we were paid money we never got. But we endured that.”
“Later, they came out and endorsed my opponent in this race,” he added. “Just two days ago, the Washington Post published yet another attack on my character and reputation in a desperate attempt to stop my political campaign for the United States Senate. These attacks about a minor are completely false and untrue about something that happened nearly 40 years ago. But more than being completely false and untrue, they are very hurtful to me personally.”
“I’ve been married to my wife Kayla for nearly 33 years,” Moore continued. “We have four children. I have one daughter, and I have five granddaughters. I have the highest regard for the protection of young children. When I returned to Gadsen 40 years ago after military service, I went to work for the office of the District Attorney. As a student of the law, I have served in public office off and on for the last 40 years. To be attacked for allegations of sexual misconduct contradicts my entire career in law.”
He then denied all of the allegations against him clearly and pointedly.
“I wanted to make it clear to the media present and the people present, I have not provided alcoholic beverages—beer or anything else—to a minor,” he said. “I have not been guilty of sexual misconduct with anyone. These allegations came only four and a half weeks before the general election on Dec. 12. Why now?”
“For forty years I have been closely scrutinized in the press and the public media,” Moore concluded. “I have had investigations by the attorney general, I’ve had investigations by the judicial inquiry commission on more than one occasion, I’ve had investigations by the court of the judiciary, I’ve been in five statewide campaigns in which they do opposition research—they do investigations, as you can see in every one I’ve ever run—and three county elections and two major controversies over religious liberty and the Ten Commandments and same-sex marriage. I’ve been investigated more than any other person in this country. That grown women would wait forty years to come right before an election to bring charges is absolutely unbelievable.”
At this point, Moore garnered a standing ovation.
I agree with his statements. Of course, the usual suspects have been after him, including a man that everyone wishes would just go away, two time loser and liberal governor of Massachusetts that redefined marriage to include sodomites, Mitt Romney.
In a tweet on Friday, Romney wrote, “Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections. I believe Leigh Corfman. Her account is too serious to ignore. Moore is unfit for office and should step aside.”

Romney, who had plenty of both true and false accusations thrown at him wouldn’t step aside, but he simply bent over and took it as Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah ate his lunch. Romney is a coward, plain and simple.
As I pointed out earlier, the establishment Republicans have also shown their true colors once again, men like Senators Mitch McConnell, John McCain and Lindsey Graham. These people need to be removed from the Republican Party and clearly align themselves with who they really represent the Democrats and Communists or Islamists.
Speaking of Democrats, Moore decided to address them following the ovation.
“The Democrats, and the Republican establishment, know the importance of this election,” said Moore. “In fact, most people in America know the importance of this election. They view it as a prelude to the elections coming in 2018. It may very well determine the future of our country.”
“My opponent is 11 points behind—that came out just days before this article,” he added. “They’re desperate. This article is a prime example of fake news, an attempt to divert attention from the true issues that face our country like healthcare, military readiness, tax reform, immigration, and the national debt. We do not intend to let the Democrats or the establishment Republicans or anybody else behind this story stop this campaign. There are investigations going on. In the next few days, there will be revelations about the motivations and the content of this article. They will be brought to the public. We fully expect the people of Alabama to see through this charade and to vote in the [election] coming up.”
“As Mr. Armistead said, we do not engage in negative campaigning,” Moore concluded. “We haven’t, and I’ve been blistered with articles and attacks the last two to three months and on television. I do not expect the Washington Post to stop. I think they have a political agenda. And I think they are running that agenda, and everybody in this room and every person watching on these cameras should ask themselves that isn’t it strange that after 40 years of constant investigation these people have waited until four weeks prior to the general election to bring their complaints? It’s not a coincidence. It’s an intentional act to stop my campaign. May God bless you, the state of Alabama, and the United States of America.”
Again, there was another standing ovation at his comments.
