Roy Moore won’t concede; says will wait on God to speak. God wasn’t registered to vote in AL but the ppl who voted did speak and it wasn’t close enough for recount. In elections everyone does NOT get a trophy. I know first hand but it’s best to exit with class.



Roy Moore showed his classlessness over the last 3 days by not conceding to an embarrassing lost but attempting to drag the state AG into the narrative by suggesting an automatic recount. When classless, always classless.

Yes! and Trump would of won the popular vote except for those 3 million fraud votes for Hillary!

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/roy-moore-tells-supporters-battle-is-not-over-in-alabamas-senate-race/

Alabama Republican Roy Moore on Friday told supporters that the "battle is not over" in Alabama's Senate race even though President Donald Trump and others have called on him to concede.

Moore sent a fundraising email to supporters asking for contributions to his "election integrity fund' so he could investigate reports of voter fraud.

"I also wanted to let you know that this battle is NOT OVER!" he wrote.

Democrat Doug Jones on Tuesday defeated Moore by about 20,000 votes, or 1.5 percent, according to unofficial returns. Jones was able to energize a traditionally weak Democratic network, CBS News' Manuel Bojorquez reported. He was buoyed largely by millions in outside money and outspent Moore 10 to 1. His campaign says supporters knocked on 300,000 doors and made more than one million calls.

But Moore, who has been accused of sexual misconduct with teenage girls when he was in his 30s, has not yet conceded the heated Alabama race to fill the seat that previously belonged to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Moore told supporters that the race was "close" and some military and provisional ballots had yet to be counted. Those are expected to be counted next week.

Moore said his campaign is collecting "numerous reported cases of voter fraud" to send to the secretary of state's office.

Secretary of State John Merrill has said it is unlikely that the last-minute ballots will change the outcome of the election or even trigger a recount.

Merrill said his office has investigated reports of voting irregularities, but "we have not discovered any that have been proven factual in nature."

Mr. Trump, who had endorsed Moore, called Jones to congratulate him on his win. On Friday, as he briefly spoke with reporters, Mr. Trump said he believed Moore should concede the race.

The results of Alabama's Senate race will be certified between Dec. 26 and Jan. 3 after counties report their official totals.

What Happens if Roy Moore Never Concedes Defeat to Doug Jones?
Newsweek Summer Meza,Newsweek 16 hours ago

Roy Moore is refusing to accept that he was defeated by Doug Jones in Tuesday’s Senate race in Alabama, but some lawmakers feel his denial is likely a publicity stunt that won't affect the outcome of the election.

Merrill, who is in charge of the certification, pointed out that any candidate can request a recount, so long as they are willing to pay for it. Moore hasn’t said anything about funding a recount.

A viral rumor went around social media claiming that black voters were caught trying to vote with fake IDs. The theory was debunked by Snopes, as was a rumor that vans of illegal voters were in Alabama voting for Jones. Merrill said that there were no actual reports that indicated any voter fraud.

According to MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, it’s their job to control “exactly what people think.”
https://silenceisconsent.net/msnbc-host-mika-brzezinski-job-control-exactly-people-think/

The MSNBC host recently lamented the influence President Trump has in influencing the American agenda: Mika Brzezinski: “…so much that he could control exactly what people think…and that is our job.”

I think that was obviously taken out of context. Unfortunately Fox tries to do that every day.

Undoubtedly, and without a sense of irony, to boot.

Fair and balanced.

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/...ts_our_job.html

He is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts," she said about Trump. "And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think."

"And that, that is our job," she noted, referring to the media.

She tweeted later that she "said the media's job was to keep President Trump from making up his own facts, NOT that it's our job to control what people think."

5 Myths About Tax Reform, and Why They’re Wrong
Myth 1: This is just a tax cut for the rich, and it will actually raise taxes for everyone else.
The truth is in fact the opposite.

The Cato Institute’s Chris Edwards notes that the Senate tax bill cuts income taxes for people making $40,000 to $75,000 a year by about 37 percent. People making over $1 million see a cut of only 6 percent.
In two recent Daily Signal pieces, we calculated how 12 different taxpayers would fare under each of the tax plans. The results show that almost everyone will see a tax cut, and only the wealthiest families are at risk of their taxes going up.
Under the current tax code, the top 10 percent of income earners earn about 45 percent of all income and pay 70 percent of all federal income taxes. The U.S. tax code is already highly progressive, and these tax reforms will only increase the trend of the wealthy paying more than their share of income earned.
Myth 2: Repealing the individual mandate will raise taxes on the poor, raise insurance premiums, and kill 10,000 people a year.
Myth 3: Corporations and their rich owners will receive a huge windfall.

Myth 4: Tax reform will be bad for seniors.

Myth 5: Tax reform won’t grow the economy, it will only add to the debt.

Absolutely, Putin have those that opposes him, mysteriously put to death, adversely Trump attempts to destroy their names and reputations, fires people that opposes his agenda, those that faces his wrath are fired or disgraced. He doesn't work with the people or Congress but expects Congress to work for him, criticizes and threatened to dismantle the very agency that polices this country...shall be say more?

First of all, you've misrepresented Edward's comments. Secondly, most of his assessments ignore key points that completely change the figures that you selectively posted. And thirdly, personal tax breaks are temporary. Those for corporations and the wealthy are PERMANENT.

Kinda shoots your narrative all to hell, doesn't it?

Heritage Tries Its Hand At News, But Forgets The Facts
June 3, 2014


David Cay Johnston
June 3, 2014 7:05 pm / 15 Comments / Memo Pad, Politics

The Daily Signal, The Heritage Foundation’s online “news” website, debuted Tuesday, offering up vagaries and unverifiable assertions aplenty, but too few empirical facts and little in the way of attribution. Its first video was a publicist’s dream, a puff piece that no serious news organization would air.

What appears in The Daily Signal matters because it is assured a large audience eager for reinforcement of deeply embedded views, but no real evidence that would challenge or even bring into question the factual basis of those views.

Reader comments on the Signal’s first investigative piece – the only solid piece of fact-based journalism it published Tuesday – showed just how eager Signal readers are to read confirmation of their biases into pieces and to ignore inconvenient facts, especially subtly presented truths that run contrary to the Heritage Foundation’s well-established perspectives.

It's rather perverted and dysfunctional that little "Donnie" gets poor grades and fails to get along with other (sounds like a primary school setting) and guess what the parents retort? "you're picking on him" You teachers have something against little Donnie" and best one, he's the smartest kid in the class and the rest need to catch up to him" My wife being a teacher says that his profile, behavior and personality is that of a 8 year old and without intervention, he will more likely become a juvenile delinquent, well he's now 71 yrs old with no proper parental guidance, we now know the rest of the story.

He's constantly breaking his own record regard to lies



Trump falsely claims he broke a legislative record
By NOLAN D. MCCASKILL 12/27/2017 07:19 PM EST
Share on Facebook Share on Twitter
President Donald Trump falsely claimed on Wednesday that he had signed more legislation than any of his predecessors at this point in their terms.

“You know, one of the things that people don’t understand — we have signed more legislation than anybody,” the president said in remarks to roughly four dozen first responders at a firehouse in West Palm Beach, Florida. “We broke the record of Harry Truman.”

It is true that Trump had signed more bills in his first 100 days than any president since Truman, but as Trump nears the anniversary of his Jan. 20 inauguration, he is far removed from his 100th day. And he has now signed the fewest number of bills into law of any first-year president dating back to Dwight Eisenhower, according to a recent report from the website GovTrack.


The report was published last Thursday, a day before the president signed a $1.5 trillion tax-cut bill and headed to his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach for the holidays.

Trump called the tax bill, which includes provisions mandating the federal government to hold oil-lease sales in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and repealing Obamacare’s unpopular individual mandate, “the legislation of all legislation” and “the biggest there is.”

Trump repeated his claim to first responders that his administration had passed a lot of legislation, though last week’s tax bill was the first and only major legislative achievement of his presidency thus far. And, according to GovTrack, Trump has signed fewer bills at this point in his presidency than George W. Bush had — and less than half as many bills as Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush had at this point.

“I believe we have — and you’ll have to ask those folks, but I think they know the real answer,” Trump said, apparently referring to the media. “We have more legislation passed, including — the record was Harry Truman. That’s a long time ago. And we broke that record. So we have a lot done.”



“I just want to thank everybody for the fantastic job you’ve done and are doing,” he said. “What you do, in terms of paramedics and fire and all of the other things you do that people don’t appreciate like they should. But we appreciate it.”



Trump had tweeted Monday night that he hopes “everyone is having a great Christmas,” adding that “tomorrow it’s back to work in order to Make America Great Again (which is happening faster than anyone anticipated)!”

So, while the Left whines, Americans are getting relief. The economic growth this quarter is at solid four percent. Consumer confidence is at a 17-year high. Unemployment is at a near two-decade low. Every indicator also shows that the biggest bonus this country received this year was Hillary Clinton not being elected president.

Any news which professes to be news deserves to be fact checked. Almost all news is more opinion than fact.

Of course I question articles from obviously biased links but Google has become one of those biased links. I never noticed it until I checked it out. I use Norton Safe Search.

A search on Google to any conservative web site will note in the sidebar that it is a conservative web site and who founded it. But they do not do the same for Liberal web sites.

Sometimes they note that malware exists on the site when it does not. They claim a statement made is a lie when the snippet isn’t even in the article.

According to numerous readers of the award-winning conservative Internet news and commentary web site, NewsWithViews.com, readers are being lied to: a popular web browser, Google Chrome, falsely tells NWV readers that "malware" exists on the web site. When you Google our previous news article "Giuliani supporting Trump in NY primary despite GOP attempts to derail campaign" then click on the link, the following warning pops up "Warning — visiting this web site may harm your computer!" You may want to consider using an alternate search engine for the time being such as 'StartPage.com, Yahoo.com, and there are plenty others, Etc.

This is allegedly seen with news stories that address political and social issues from a conservative or libertarian perspective especially positive stories and comments that are favorable to GOP front-runner Donald Trump , according to several writers and the editor at NWV, Paul Walter.

The Daily Caller also even makes the claim that one of the stories that Google says is “three Pinocchios,” the Daily Caller says the sentence Google “randomly” chose to evaluate isn’t even in the article.

In the snippet that Google chose for The Daily Caller’s (DC) article, they make it appear that DC is claiming that all of the people hired to investigate the Trump administration and Russia is entirely composed of Clinton donors, when really the story simply states that Robert Mueller hired a Clinton donor to aid the investigation.

Not only is this brief and confusing way of fact-checking an article wrong, but Google has this feature almost exclusively for only Conservative news sites.

Google also shows that major news corporations like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times all seem to be too high and might to deserve a “reviewed claims” section and instead not only have a “writes about” section but also showcases all the awards they’ve won. Apparently the bigger news (and mostly left) news publications are just too good to have ever possibly made a false claim.

Not so strangely YouTube has been deleting conservative videos because Google owns it. Founded in 2005, YouTube was bought by Google for $1.65 billion the following year.

The YouTube channel of influential conservative politics and law website Legal Insurrection has been removed by the video sharing service, citing copyright infringement claims.

“This account has been terminated because we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted,” explains YouTube, in a notice posted to channel’s page.

Legal Insurrection founder and publisher and Cornell University Law Professor William Jacobson voiced his anger and astonishment at the channel’s removal. “It’s very frustrating, it’s very scary, to have 8 years of content removed without a chance to defend yourself,” he told FoxNews.com.

In an email, Jacobson said that he never received notice of the claims prior to the channel's removal on Thursday. On Friday the publisher received notification from YouTube that the copyright claims were filed by the Modern Languages Association (MLA) based on audio posted of a recent MLA vote on a resolution to boycott Israeli universities. The boycott resolution at the MLA Delegate Assembly failed.

"Clearly this was a politically motivated move," he told FoxNews.com. "I never received any request or complaint from MLA. These were perfectly legitimate fair use excerpts with great news value."

Google Targets Conservative News Sites Calling Them Liars, Liberal Sites Are OK

The mega monster search engine that everyone uses, Google, has now decided to become a partisan fact-checking site that only tells viewers how factually wrong conservative sites are while not even touching the liberal news sites, reports The Daily Caller.

In a new feature, Google has employed on their search engine page, whenever you search a news outlet a sidebar will pop up that shows “Topics they write about,” and if you go to a conservative site then they also have a “reviewed claims” section.

In the “reviewed claims” section, Google decided to take semi-random and out of context snippets from the articles and pretty much consistently say that the claim is either “false,” “unsupported,” “Incorrect,” or in like with the Washington Post’s grading system “three Pinocchios.”

DC also says that the fact-checking sites that Google is using are far from bi-partisan and have been known to make mistakes themselves. Snopes is one of the sites and has deliberately omitted key details in order to protect John Kerry’s State Department before.

The fact-checking feature does not, however, show up on left-wing liberal news sites that sorely need to be checked themselves. If you Google sites like Salon, Crooks and Liars, Bustle, Think Progress, Huffington Post, Alternet, Jezebel, or Infowars, the fact-checking feature does not pop up and you are not told how much of liars they actually are.

I almost spit my coffee out over your narrative of "Fake" news. Maybe the next time you use the fake news nomenclature, please supply mainstream citation versus "underground" link to support your opinion.
Now back to fact, we have two Republican gents having plead guilty to crimes, unless you can supply underground citation disputing those cases. Did you know that being a farmer qualifies you as somewhat an expert in that field and Google will accept your expertise in the matter as submission that can be added to the search engine but the downside to this particular situation, review your past postings and ponder how many like yourself are readily adding to the search engine, thus the reason that contractors as myself contain their knowledge to the learned trade that were proven adverse to self proclaimed experts. I think that you're getting the trend here, a bunch of self made "expert" coming here and getting upset when their so called expertise is called into question......while attempting to forget one basic FACT that 2 plus 2 equals 4, a tried a and true answer. Hey, take a little time to respond with an alternative answer if it isn't 4.
