As Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore inches closer to an election victory, he’ll receive a boost from someone trying to overhaul establishment politicians, Steve Bannon.

The former White House strategist is set to campaign with Moore in Alabama on Monday night, the day before the election to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

He has previously taken the stage with Moore, and urged the people of Alabama to support the republican candidate, saying a vote for Moore is a vote for President Trump’s America first agenda.

“This election is going to boil down to something very simple,” said Bannon “Do you support the program of Donald J. Trump that Judge Moore supports? Or do the good folks in Alabama support the program of Hillary Clinton, already rejected on November 8th of 2016, that Doug Jones represents”

Bannon says he is honored to take the stage once again with Moore, and calls him a good man.

    Such a lying fake News Network. On the night of the election one America news spread fake news of Judge Roy Moore winning. This is disgusting. The child molester known as Roy Moore lost.

  • Don Alexander

    OAN said Moore was sweeping the election. How do you like living in an alternate reality? Now I’m going to get a barrage of Libtard..ect. Y’all are a special kind of stupid.

  • rnsr4u

    Twitter is banning those that tell truth about Islamic Muslim Terrorist!! They R interfering with American elections! Roy MOORE must win BIGLY! I have no doubt Twitter banned those effective in promoting Roy Moore so that during the days they cannot tweet to support Roy Moore! It is disgusting how much Twitter covers for the left!

    • DCBlueBlood

      I’m sorry a child molester that has twice been removed from the bench does not need to go to the US Senate – It would be shameful.

      Bannon endorsing this pedo really shows where the GOP has gone — Into the gutter!

  • DCBlueBlood

    No More Moore …

    Democrat Doug Jones leads GOP candidate Roy Moore by 10 points in the Alabama Senate race, according to a Fox News poll released Monday.

    Fifty percent of voters surveyed say they prefer Jones, compared to 40 percent for Moore, who has been plagued by accusations of sexual misconduct.

    I really hope the Pedophile Child Molestor gets his butt kicked!

  • JL Ziegler

    Thumbs up.

  • AshJonson

    I want to know why demotrash is not held accountable for sedition??? FFS!

  • Glenda Hammer

    Jones has spent 10 times the money Moore has spent, thanks to the Democrat party trying to buy the election.
    Jones will turn Alabama into a sanctuary State, and illegals will come first over legal Americans just like with other Democrat controlled states, NY and Calif.

  • Alwaysafan

    Good. Can’t let the lying Dems get away with these false accusations just to be able to get one of their own to win.

    If the Dems hate him AND the GOP hates him, that says a lot.. the GOP fears that he will be elected and NOT play the Good Old Boy routine.. they are afraid of another ‘rogue’ senator.

  • eladtoor

    The Trump/Bannon administration is about to suffer a severe shock this Monday, which will render the results of the Moore election irrelevant.
    Insiders report that Monday, all male members of the US Senate will be forced to resign, due to charges of having ‘Impure Thoughts’ about female Senators.
    This will leave the entire US Senate with only seventeen members, all women, led by Elizabeth Warren, the woman who made the ‘Impure Thought’ Charges. Of the seventeen Senators, twelve are Democrats, five GOPes.
    This , of course, changes the whole perspective of the future of the Trump/Bannon administration. There are rumors that the US Senate will reveal that the President wears Depends. That the US Senate will declare Huckabee Sanders an ‘Honorary Male.’ That the US Senate will not vote “No” on the new tax legislation, but “HELL NO”.
    Rumors that the President is planning to move the Oval Office to Jerusalem have not been confirmed.

          There’s no need to overcorrect. Democrats aren’t Nazis and neither are Republicans. We’re not going to get any closer to a functioning government if we keep calling the other side Nazis.

          Nazis aimed at the eradication of gays, Jews, Roma, the disabled and political dissidents through the use of large-scale murder, etc. Let’s save the label for those who actually fit the bill.

            N.A.Z.I. is a German acronym loosely translated as “National Socialist Workers Party”.
            Sound familiar yet?

            And, of course, the NAZIs didn’t start out by murdering people, but they eventually got around to it.
            So will the democrats if given enough power. They’re already talking about jailing people for not genuflecting to the Man Made Global Warming scam.

            Mobs of black clad thugs are bashing-in heads of those who they perceive as being an impediment to their political goals. This is clearly reminiscent of the NAZI thugs of 1930’s Germany

            Obama’s butt buddy, Bill Ayers, has offered that approximately 50 million Americans must die in order to bring about the “fundamental transformation” of America as he and his fellow travelers envision it.

            Obama, friend to Bill Ayers, stated his desire for a “civilian security force” armed with the same capability as the U.S. military. And, of course, there is the on-going attempt by the democrats to disarm the American people.

            Any truly objective person forced to choose as to which party is the closest to the NAZI party of the 30’s, they would have to choose the Democrat party….hands down.

          • McPhilmy

      Best way to judge a man in this climate is by who is against him. To hear the libs and RINOs squealing like stuck pigs, gives me a really good feeling about Moore.

        ME 2…will be stuck in front of the tube come daylight for me.

    • Letmesay

      This is the major reason he came out of the WHITE HOUSE. His hands were tied being in congress. Now he can go for the gusto and help take down those slimy liberal-Dems.

  • Disgusted Caucasian

    Love Steve Bannon….his presence in the oval office drove liberals near to suicide. I loved him next to Trump but I like him in his new role too.

    • McPhilmy

      If he was so vital, why was he driven out? Trump didn’t want him in there and sided with Luther Strange because he knew Moore had too much baggage.

      • TexasCoyote1

        Trump was encouraged by Mitch McConnell and probably promised a favorable vote in exchange. Trump is quoted as having said supporting Strange was a mistake. This statement was made before any of this smear campaign began, so I believe Trump realized after the fact he had been asked to back the wrong horse.

        • Letmesay

          WHAT!!!I read that on all the liberal media. Where did you read it..

      • UFGatorsForever

        Bannon’s was a leaker but that’s fine because now he is performing a better purpose.

        • All American

          How are the Gators doing this season vs FSU ?

      • Disgusted Caucasian

        Trump endorsed swamp rat Strange because he needed McConnell to pass tax reform. Trump knew that Strange didn’t have a snowball’s chance so it was safe to endorse Strange while getting RINO McConnell on board with tax reform. As soon as Luther Strange was a loser, Trump immediately abandoned him. What part don’t you get?

        • McPhilmy

          But why risk a close election with Moore. Isn’t it more important to have a sure thing Republican (in the general election) than having to risk it with Moore. If Bannon hadn’t endorsed Moore, we wouldn’t be in this mess where Alabama Republican voters are choosing between alleged Pedophilia and a Pro-Choice candidate.

          Regardless of your position on the Moore situation, it has caused a lot of uncomfort for voters.

          • Disgusted Caucasian

            Moore IS the sure thing Republican. What’s this ‘we’ crap? You are a demonrat or a demonrat sympathizer.

          • McPhilmy

            “We” as in an American. Democracy only works when both candidates are reasonable choices, and we haven’t had that for a very long time.

            Moore isn’t a sure thing to win. He will probably win, but this was a very close election no matter how you look at it considering this is Alabama we’re talking about.

          • kaiju

            Got a problem with Alabama?

          • McPhilmy

            Nah, I meant that as in Alabama should be a super safe state for the Republican nominee. I like the state, though haven’t been outside Huntsville and Auburn.

          • kaiju

            Nothing is safe when the RINOs are dumping tens of millions into defeating the Republican. That’s why I’ll be there early to vote for Moore.

          • Letmesay

            Exactly…and especially when a liberal is running against a conservative you have no clear feeling how people vote these days. Look what happened to this country we not only voted in a black man, but an African muslim who is more then likely not even a U.S.citizen. Blacks voted for him because was black and whites did too, just because he was black. Then the unbelievable happened he was voted in again. In eight years he never lifted a finger for all those oppressed blacks…just for the Muslims and homegrown terrorist in this country and furthered his NWO agenda. And almost crippled this country to the point of no return. But we survived. Donald Trump came along..

          • kaiju

            McPhilmy is probably one of those “concern trolls”. They pretend to be pro-Trump and then launch into “concern” and “doubt” attacks on conservatives. This site has several operating in it.

          • McPhilmy

            I don’t think there’s any need to label me. I’m just trying to be objective. I’m not a die hard Trump supporter by any means, I’ll be up front. But I’m no liberal, either and I hate the Eric Cantors of this world the most. I’m just interested in talking to people and hearing what they have to say. Not trying to argue or win anyone over, just discuss.

            As far as Moore goes, I think Trump looked pretty weak endorsing Strange then going all in on Moore. I wanted to know why so I asked. Disgusted Caucasian offered a pretty decent explanation that I think I buy: winning over McConnell on the tax plan. If he’s right, it definitely paid off.

          • The Arbitrageur

            HAHAHAHAHA I’m just loving your comment history – you should come over to PredictIt and use your prognostication skills over there.

          • Tim maher

            What makes you think it would have been any different no matter who won? False allegations can be leveled against anyone and it sounds these accusers were well paid by the newspaper.

          • McPhilmy

            I know there are a lot of people who claim this story is made up, and I know there are a lot of people who claim the allegations are credible. I am less certain in either direction but I don’t have to make up my mind because my opinion doesn’t matter, since I’m not in Alabama. All I know is that there are a lot of unsure voters in Alabama and Luther Strange had a less controversial record going into the Primaries.

          • kaiju

            If you don’t live in Alabama, it’s not your problem. We know who Roy Moore is and we know who Luther Strange is too. The allegations against Moore aside, to say that Strange was less controversial either labels you as a troll or someone who doesn’t know what your talking about.

          • McPhilmy

            Moore whipped a gun out at a rally (doesn’t bother me, but it’s definitely controversial). He got removed from the AL SC twice, flat out refusing several court orders (pretty unacceptable for a man who respects the laws of this country). At the very least, he implied that we would have fewer problems if women couldn’t vote and black people were still slaves (surely, he didn’t mean that but people in Congress, especially those as intelligent as Moore should be able to keep their foot out of their mouth).

            Luther Strange’s rise to power certainly raises some reddish/yellowish flags, I don’t deny that. I’m not sure anything beyond his ascension is all that controversial, but I’m always eager to learn.

            AL Rs weren’t given the best of options in the primaries. I still think they should vote for the guy who will vote in their interest (for most, that’ll be Moore). Nevertheless, this whole election was not ideal in terms of giving these citizens a voice.

          • Letmesay

            Being a liberal to me is just as controversial in the wrong direction. It will be too late once they get that yahoo in there. My vote is for Moore if I was voting.
            I have not heard anything credible from any if those women. The one that made me laugh was the women that said he bought her a drink when she was under age. If she drank it she broke the law, not him.
            The one with the yearbook just keeps growing and growing with her own handwriting. And the funniest part the old Hollywood lawyer, I can just imagine how many men would like to ring her neck.

          • McPhilmy

            If he bought her alcohol, he would break the law if she drank it. That’s no controversy or anything, but I just want to make sure others don’t walk away thinking that’s true. Furnishing Alcohol to Minors is the name of the offense. No one gives a hoot, but there it is.

      • Letmesay

        Geez, fellow…Bannon has been out of the white house long before Moore came into the public eye. He is vital! and he was not driven out of the white house he resigned to do more and better things for this country and our president. And to keep the left in congress from pointing fingers.
        You are making up stories, seems pretty clear how you roll.

    • The Arbitrageur

      We liberals like him in his new role too! Look at that Steve Bannon – bringing liberals and conservatives together!

      I’m also loving how this site hasn’t posted anything about Roy Moore since taking down the piece proclaiming him the winner of the election.

    We should all vote for the candidates Steve Bannon vets as supporting President Trump’s agenda. If Trump had a supportive Congress, he could really get things done to improve the quality of life for all Americans.

      The current establishment thinks the NWO is the quality of life Americans want.

      • TexasCoyote1

        Well, it’s certainly not what I consider quality of life. I want the freedom to make my own mistakes with my own money and start over again. I don’t want government bureaucrats telling me what I need and don’t need and forcing me to financially support something like Obamacare that I don’t need and don’t want just because 51% of the population likes it. That is not America.

        • Al Lejdly

          • TexasCoyote1

            The founding fathers told us we would have to be vigilant to protect the Constitutional Republican form of government they established. I think it’s fair to say we have ignored that vigilance over the past few decades. It’s time we made up for that and helped our president drain the swamp of those who would destroy our of the people, by the people and for the people form of government.

          • Al Lejdly

            Sadly it’s going to take that to defeat the globalists.

And we all know what’s next after that precious document is run through the shredder.

          • TexasCoyote1

            Well said. It’s a shame so many American citizens can’t see what you just described. Too many are looking for a utopia that does not exist. Life is a struggle–government can only give the illusion of trying to lessen that struggle.

          • Al Lejdly

          • TexasCoyote1

            The 51% statistic simply refers to the fact the United States is not a democracy–it is a Constitutional Republic. We are an organization of states in which only 8 distinct areas of governance were allocated to the umbrella governing body in Washington DC. This umbrella government has usurped from the states powers far beyond what the founding father’s intended.

            Obamacare is an example of legislation imposed on the people of all states which the United States does not have the power to impose.

      • TexasCoyote1

        Trump has already improved my quality of life just by being in the oval office instead of Hillary Clinton. I support Trump’s agenda 100% and I will support all the candidates Steve Bannon vets as also being supportive of that agenda. We must return this nation to its conservative Christian values.

        Gay marriage, state sponsored healthcare, tolerance of illegal immigration that depresses wages for native-born Americans and social programs that pit one group against another are not going to improve life in America.

        • McPhilmy

          Government-sponsored care can definitely and has improved the lives of millions in America. It’s called Medicare and millions of senior citizens rely on it.

          • skyhawk

            Err….actually, the government’s involvement in Medicare and Medicaid is the very thing that created the mess in health costs.

            Those programs only pay pennies on the dollar for services rendered. The care givers have to recover that money somewhere or fold up shop. Then where would we be?

            They recover that lost income from patients who are not on Medicare and Medicaid.
            That’s why your local hospital charges $25.00 for two aspirin.

            Were the government not involved at all in health care, the system wouldn’t be broken in the first place.

          • McPhilmy

            Gov’t’s involvement? It’s a government program. You can’t have Medicare without the government.

            All you problems with it are secondary to the fact that the program itself needs to be there. You have issues with it, but the abolishment of the program is not what you’re looking for.

            Further, the Gov’t is involved in every aspect of healthcare in ways that are extremely popular. Most obviously, employer sponsored health insurance is both tax exempt and excluded (employers don’t get taxes and employees don’t get taxed).

          • TexasCoyote1

            You need to crawl out of your “government is wonderful” cocoon. Government is incapable of sponsoring anything successfully. Have you ever looked at the intelligence of your average government bureaucrat? You want these people directing something as personal and potentially life-threatening as your health? Not me!!!

            Your comment about the deductibility of insurance premiums is ridiculous. If government were not involved in the first place, our medical insurance premiums would not have outpaced inflation as they have over the past few decades. Government is almost always the problem and never the solution.

          • McPhilmy

            If government weren’t involved in the first place, employer sponsored healthcare would be considered an employee benefit for tax purposes therefore getting taxed like income.

            Medicare is among the most popular programs in the country, as evidenced by our president’s continued promises to keep it intact. No private insurance company would insure the elderly. So without the government, thousands of elderly individuals would die.

          • TexasCoyote1

            If the government were not involved in healthcare to begin with our premiums would not have skyrocketed over the past few years. Getting a deduction for those premiums does not nearly cover the increase that government has created. In 1972 my Blue Cross Blue Shield premiums were $8.70/month. If I had insurance, which I do not, those premiums would have increased far more rapidly than inflation. The insurance system is broken because Americans don’t believe they should pay anything toward their medical services. When patients have no investment, they have no incentive to do all they can to reduce the increased costs.

            My comments regarding Medicare were meant to show that it is a highly flawed healthcare vehicle because in so many cases the doctors are not even reimburse for their out-of-pocket costs. While it may be the only insurance available to the elderly, it is still not a good system.

          • Deplorable Dirty Harry

            Thank democrat ted Kennedy-he did hmo’s

          • TexasCoyote1

            Yes, HMO’s were the beginning of the end for good healthcare insurance. They encouraged doctors to “not” care for their patients by giving incentives to those who did not refer patients to specialists and other denials of care that resulted in less cost to the insurance companies.

            Since most insurance commissions allow companies to be compensated a percentage of the amount they pay out, so now companies are trying to pay out as much as possible because 7% of $1,000 is a lot more than 7% of $100. This has led to the skyrocketing insurance premiums US citizens are now experiencing.

          • Twinkle Toes

            I understand your frustration with HMOs but I have to correct you. It’s not that doctors did not care, the fault lies with the insurance program requiring a primary care provider to approve of a patient going to a specialist. What a huge burden and error. That is a horrific nightmare and is costing people their lives. Literally.

          • Twinkle Toes

            McPhilmy is a troll.

            You can’t have a government without taxpayers. Maybe government meddling in health care is popular to you, but not everybody agrees with you.

          • McPhilmy

            There’s not a single person in Congress that wants government all the way out of healthcare. It’s unreal how radical of an idea that is.

          • kaiju

            Exactly why we need term limits and a good flush of our current congressmen.

          • McPhilmy

            People have come into Congress with those ideas but they always learn why that’s impossible or at least devastating to their constituents.

            Red States, in particular, would be screwed without federal medicare dollars. Take Florida for example. Consider all the people who retire to Florida from another state and how that would burden the state. Either people will stop moving to Florida because they won’t get healthcare there or people will go untreated, decreasing life expectancy.

          • Twinkle Toes

            Did your insurance premiums increase 300%?
            Were you unable to go to the doctor due to the deductible?
            Did your health deteriorate because you could not go to the doctor because of the first 2 questions?

            If you did not answer yes to all 3 questions, you have no clue to the damage O’care has done to American citizens. You and I have already had this discussion but you will not face the FACTS.

          • TexasCoyote1

            I hate to burst your bubble, but not all doctors accept Medicare patients. When my mother was diagnosed with COPD, the only doctors who would accept her Medicare were either inexperienced young doctors or foreigners. She never had a good experience with any doctor she saw as a Medicare patient.

            If you are happy seeing any old doctor, fine, but most of us do not just want to be put into the medical lottery to see who we draw.

            Just because there are problems with the system doesn’t mean the whole system should be eliminated or that it’s not an overall good.

            My point is that anytime government gets involved in an area that should be left in the private sector, they screw it up. I have relatives who lived well into their 100’s before Medicare. They were not wealthy or privileged, so there was life without Medicare. Like any other government program, getting rid of it is almost impossible because everybody always feels like someone will die if it no longer exists.

          • McPhilmy

            If one of your relatives got cancer without medicare/medicaid, they would not have been able to afford treatment unless they were very rich. Basically no one can afford cancer and private insurance companies were legally allowed to have annual and lifetime maximums before gov’t’s involvement.

            Health care is one of the most obvious places where consumers are powerless. If I have a ruptured intestine, I’m not going to shop around to find an affordable provider; I’m going to the nearest hospital.

          • TexasCoyote1

            In Texas we have a system of county hospitals which are free to those who cannot pay. All of us who own homes are charged for this each year as part of our property taxes. If one of my poor relatives were seriously ill, they went to one of these hospitals and received care.

            A few weeks ago my daughter-in-law needed blood work done for her doctor (she does not have health insurance). Initially, the business office at our local hospital said the tests would cost $1,250. We negotiated and got the cost down to $850. The Hospital then called the doctor to see if they could replace one of the tests with a less expensive one that would yield similar results. Our final cost was $638. Those who have health insurance don’t even bother to look at their bills much less negotiate for their services.

            There is no other service we don’t negotiate for. We negotiate for the cost of a car, and we should negotiate for the cost of medical services as well. In your example of a life-threatening situation, I agree these negotiations should be done by friends and family members, but as a percentage very few visits to the doctor are life-threatening, but if we all negotiated, we could significantly reduce the cost.

            Obama care should be repealed and not replaced. That is what we asked of President Donald J. Trump and that is what we expect.

          • McPhilmy

            We weren’t talking about the ACA.

          • Rufus Firefly

            Are you sure that would be mediCARE? Most docs around here accept it. medicAID is a different story.

          • TexasCoyote1

            Yes, I am quite sure it was Medicare. I am an only child, so I had to try to help her through this when she was quite ill. As a former CPA, I had several doctor clients tell me they couldn’t afford to take on very many Medicare patients because the reimbursements frequently did not even cover the costs of the drugs needed to give certain treatments especially to cancer patients.

          • Rufus Firefly

            I think there was some kind of Medicare kerfuffle a few years back when the automatic sequester kicked in and that unintentionally caused severe cuts in cancer treatment. There were some adjustments afterward.

          • TexasCoyote1

            I’ve been on Medicare for the past 5 years, but I have never used it, so I don’t have any first-hand experiences to add to your body of knowledge.

            My previous post has just about all i know or ever knew about the subject.

          • kaiju

            Have to correct you there, because your talking like a liberal. The Government doesn’t sponsor anything, because they don’t produce anything. The money going into Medicare and every other “government” program is “taxpayer” money. Taxpayers are pretty pissed at the moment so you need to watch what your promoting around here.

          • McPhilmy

            Yes, that’s right. I was using that term as a borrowed one from Health Law, it’s a fiction like you point out but it’s just shorthand. The same way that, for private/employer-sponsored Insurance Companies don’t pay for things, the insurance pool does.

          • Twinkle Toes

            McPhilmy is a liberal, a total troll.

          • Twinkle Toes

            NONE of my doctors want O’care, one doctor friend of mine said “Obama f____d up medical care for everyone.

            Yes, I am convinced now you are the troll you claim not to be.

        • Rufus Firefly

            I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree.

          • kaiju

            Add Tolerance of Trolls. That was pretty entertaining.

      • skyhawk

        Rufus….the only known and verified “conspiracy with a foreign power” was with the Clinton campaign.
        That is a fact!

        Oh…and as far as “quality of life”; along with the increase in employment, increase in wages (first time in over 20 years), the coming tax cut, etc…there is the ultimate life improvement for the American people—Hillary is never going to get her clutches on the reins of power!

        Enjoy the ride!

        • Rufus Firefly

          Your facts are…not. You should look at facts, not what Trump spews at rallies. He does not know what he’s talking about most of the time.

      • Michael Klevins

        Trump U? There are no guarantees in life. There are thousands of graduated students right now crying they were not educated at the universities they attended, sighting they can’t find jobs, can’t earn what they were promised, and refusing to pay back tuition costs. Tax payers will foot the bill for these lazy scam artists and most likely will not surrender their degrees. Trump is at least smart enough to collect the money up front from the few who want something for nothing. This is just another smear campaign making light of frivolous lawsuits! It’s only a civil case, not a criminal case like say, Bernie Madhoff (or potentially HIllary Clinton)? Apples and Oranges!

        Bankruptcy? Actually, if you know anything about the business world, Trump didn’t bankrupt…his corporations did. There’s a difference, and sometimes there’s more to bankruptcy than meets the eye. It was ok for other corporations to bankrupt when the economy crashed, why can’t his? Just looking for some consistency here. Also, out of the 4 times, 3 of which the business he bought was failing and filed because he needed that part of the deal to gain on other parts, which if you aren’t in business (lemonade stands don’t count) you would understand. You have to lose to gain sometimes…
        Trump had left Atlantic City and given up his control of his casinos long before Christie got there. Trump built his casinos in Atlantic City to build up AC, but because of the corrupt politicians in Atlantic City they did not take the money they received to finish building up the city. It was the corruptness, so Trump knew enough to get out before it was too late. It amazes me the lies and half truths about Trump that are being made up. They should all at least keep it honest!!

        • Rufus Firefly

          You really bought into Trump’s lies.Trump paid $25million to settle a fraud lawsuit. Whether it was civil or criminal – he is a fraud.

          The casino debacle was Trump’s ineptness. The banks bought him off to prevent further losses. He thinks nothing of leaving his customers, suppliers, and lenders high and dry while he profits. He has been a completely unethical businessman. Now, US banks will not lend him any money.

          Trump would have NEVER been hired by any reputable US company as CEO.
