‘Ten Commandments Judge’ Roy Moore Wins Alabama Primary Runoff for U.S. Senate

‘Ten Commandments Judge’ Roy Moore Wins Alabama Primary Runoff for U.S. Senate

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, also known as the “Ten Commandments Judge,” has won the state primary runoff for the U.S. Senate, significantly defeating his opponent Luther Strange despite President Trump’s endorsement of Strange.

As of press time, with 92 percent of precincts reporting, Moore had obtained 54 percent of the vote versus 45 percent for Strange.

Strange has conceded the race, remarking in a statement, “I congratulate Roy Moore on the result this evening. May God be with him and may God continue to bless Alabama and the United States of America.”

He also thanked President Trump and Vice President Pence for their support.

Trump himself congratulated Moore upon learning the results of the race, tweeting, “Congratulations to Roy Moore on his Republican Primary win in Alabama. Luther Strange started way back & ran a good race. Roy, WIN in Dec!”

Moore, while thanking his supporters Tuesday night, also gave thanks foremost to God, noting that he never prayed to God to win, but rather asked that the Lord’s will would be done. He said that it is not good for a man to think that he won on his own, and noted that losing is sometimes good for a person.

“[T]here’s nothing too great for God. For one day every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain or hill shall be made low. The crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain. And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it,” Moore said, quoting from the book of Isaiah.

“We’re put here on earth for a short time, and for that short time, our duty is to serve Almighty God and serve Him in all things,” he also declared. “[W]e have to return the knowledge of God and the Constitution of the United States to the United States Congress.”

Moore lamented the division that is sweeping America, but expressed optimism that God can restore the country to its former “greatness.”

“This is a time for victory. It’s a time to remember the struggles we’ve gone through. But it’s also a time to rededicate our lives to God, and to our Constitution and to our country, [and] to our families,” he said.

Moore generated widespread support from evangelicals both statewide and nationwide, including James Dobson of Focus on the Family and Franklin Graham of Samaritan’s Purse. Several former White House cabinet members also appeared at Moore’s rallies, including Sebastian Gorka, an intelligence analyst who served as an advisor to President Trump, and former Chief of Staff Steve Bannon.

As previously reported, Moore is known as the “Ten Commandments Judge” as he was ousted from the Alabama Supreme Court in 2003 following a battle over a Ten Commandments monument he had erected in the high court’s rotunda.

He was reelected by the people in 2012 as chief justice, but the Alabama Court of the Judiciary suspended him again last year following a trial over a memo he released in 2016, advising that his colleagues had not reversed a decision prohibiting probate judges from issuing marriage licenses to homosexuals as per the Alabama Constitution. After the suspension was upheld in April, Moore resigned and soon announced his run for U.S. Senate.

So even Trump’s endorsement (due to Trump’s apparent decision to go along with Mitch McConnell) of Strange couldn’t stop Moore. And thankfully so, since Moore is more in the stick-it-to-the-left spirit of Trump than Strange was, and despite the MSM trying to spin this as a defeat for Trump, it’s clear from the social media SJW freakout that Moore is more of a threat to them.

Culture War can be waged back!

Even in a disaster no one wants the vegan food

 
Well, who can blame them? 🙂

 

To give credit where due…

… good on Trump for two things recently: rolling back the scope of America’s actions in Syria (moving away from toppling the Assad regime as the supreme goal) and trolling the progs and neo-cucks with his Twitter-announced ban on transgendered serving in the military. It’s most revealing to once again see not only progs losing it over Trump’s tweet, but also the neo-cons, and crunchy con bearded Orthodox hipster Rod Dreher.

And we know that no other Republican would have dared gone there.

But Trump did.

Moar of this, please.

 

Romania Close to Ban on Same-Sex ‘Marriage’

Romania Close to Ban on Same-Sex ‘Marriage’

The Romanian Chamber of Deputies has voted in favor of a proposal to amend the Constitution to ensure that marriage is defined as the union of one man and one woman.

The proposal, led by a group called Coalition for Family, passed with 232 votes in favor, 22 against and 13 abstentions. The group had collected three million signatures in support of this initiative last year.

The Romanian Constitution defines the family as the “freely consented marriage between spouses.” It was written during an earlier period in its history when “spouses” always implied marital relationships as between one man and one woman.

Good on Romania!

 
 

A Happy and Blessed Easter, to all!

Hallelujah, for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth, Hallelujah! The Kingdom of this world is become the Kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign for ever and ever, Hallelujah! King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, and he shall reign for ever and ever, Hallelujah!

(Revelation 19:6; 11:15; 19:16)

Cadbury drops name ‘Easter’ from annual Egg Hunt in the U.K.; British P.M. criticizes them, and they partially relent, re-emphasizing Easter in marketing

Theresa May is making Britain Great again! 🙂

Theresa May has described the decision to drop the word Easter from the name of Cadbury and National Trust egg hunts as “absolutely ridiculous”.

Her comments come after the Archbishop of York said calling the event the Cadbury Egg Hunt was like “spitting on the grave” of the firm’s Christian founder, John Cadbury.

[…]

The annual egg hunts at National Trust properties around the country over the Easter weekend have been run in partnership with Cadbury for 10 years. About 300 will be taking place this year.

The event has previously been called an “Easter Egg Trail” but this year it has been promoted as “Cadbury’s Great British Egg Hunt”. Both organisations do refer to Easter within their promotional adverts.

Mrs May told ITV News: “I’m not just a vicar’s daughter – I’m a member of the National Trust as well.

“I think the stance they have taken is absolutely ridiculous. I don’t know what they are thinking about frankly. Easter’s very important… It’s a very important festival for the Christian faith for millions across the world.”


So, a small, partial victory in the culture war.

And hey, at least they didn’t try to call them spring / springtime {festivity} spheres

Tory leadership candidate invokes the ‘red pill’ metaphor; a few folks go apeshit; others laugh it off

Amusing:

Conservative leadership candidate Maxime Bernier defended himself against accusations of misogyny late Monday night after posting a sci-fi-themed meme on Twitter which asks,”Will you choose the red pill?”

The “red pill” meme — a reference to a scene in the film The Matrix in which the protagonist learns he’s living in a simulation — has been exploited by alt-right sites and so-called ‘men’s rights’ activists, many of whom express noxious views about women online. The documentary The Red Pill follows a filmmaker’s experiences discovering the “polarizing Men’s Rights Movement.”

Thanks for the attention, toots! (BTW, seeing as it’s #InternationalWomensDay, while you’re up, mind fixing me a sandwich? Attagirl! 😉 )

As you can see, Mad Max hasn’t deleted his tweet yet, despite criticism from other Tory leadership candidates, and a Liberal strategist. Respect!

Nice to see some other folks amused at progs getting bent out of shape over this, too.

We control the Narrative now, prog and neo-cuck bitches! 🙂
