‘100% Guarantee’: Systematic Trade in Fake Asylum Stories Revealed in Sweden

No legal reason for staying in Sweden? No problem, as plenty of “asylum dealers” offering false online histories, fabricated refugee stories and counseling on how to trick the authorities has been revealed operating in the Nordic country — with tacit endorsement from the authorities.

A widespread network of “asylum dealers” providing fake asylum stories to people seeking residence permits in Sweden has been revealed by Swedish Radio.

“I had been rejected and was afraid that they would expel me back to Iran. Then I heard that there were people who could help one out with asylum,” a client of “asylum dealers” named “Hamid” (assumed name) told Swedish Radio. “I was able to buy a blog critical of the regime that had been active for several years. I took it over and then they helped me update it as if it had always been mine,” “Hamid” explained. With the help of this new false evidence, he was able to gain a residence permit in Sweden.

After hearing several similar stories and discovering a plethora of websites providing both false asylum stories and helping to obtain visas on dubious grounds, Swedish Radio staff contacted one of them under the pretense of smuggling an Iranian brother to Sweden, emphasizing that the man had no legal protection reasons.

The journalists were immediately offered a deal, in which the “brother” would be provided a networking history as a regime critic and receive counseling on how to present his legend in a more advantageous light. The “brother” would also receive an invitation from a company as a valid visa reason. Lastly, he would also receive background evidence on how to present his fictional asylum report to the Migration Board.

The price for the entire package, which allegedly came with a “100 percent guarantee,” was approximately SEK 60,000 ($7,100).

Swedish Radio reviewed three sites in Farsi selling fabricated asylum stories and tailored “asylum packages” for those willing to come to Sweden. Similar websites, however, exist in other languages.

Despite the fact that the counterfeit asylum stories business is illegal and the authorities have been aware of its prevalence for several years, no investigation has been made. Even if the Migration Board and the Police Office admitted that such rackets can undermine confidence in the asylum system, both authorities argue that their counterpart is more equipped to reveal asylum fraud.

“In Sweden, the punishment for this crime would be quite low. At the same time, it would require a lot of stress and internet research. So it would be economically unreasonable to earmark the resources that would be required to identify an offender,” says Patrik Engström, the head of the National Borders Police. “The police in Sweden are facing a situation in which we find it difficult to investigate high-priority crimes. Even though we would like to investigate these crimes, it’s not possible to prioritize them,” he explained.

“Sweden has been very attractive for asylum applicants. A lot of people have come here if compared with other European nations, which may mean that these packages are designed for Sweden specifically,” Petrén said.

EU Asylum Support Office president Anis Cassar argued that the asylum trade is likely to challenge the EU’s entire asylum system.

“Basically, this is about people selling illegal ways of getting to and staying in Europe. It can undermine the entire asylum system, and it’s also a security issue,” Anis Cassar told Swedish Radio.

Michelle Malkin: ‘How Many More People Have to Die’ Before Congress Ends ‘Visa Lottery?’


Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” conservative commentator Michelle Malkin slammed Republicans and Democrats in Congress for failing to end the so-called diversity visa lottery program, an immigration policy that’s been under fire for being exploited by foreign terror suspects. Malkin attacked the GOP-led Congress for not having already ended the visa lottery, where 50,000 visas are randomly given out to foreign nationals from a multitude of countries. Those countries include ones with known terrorist problems, such as Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Yemen, and Uzbekistan. Partial transcript as follows: There are millions of people around the world who are clamoring to get in here the right way and the fact that we still do it randomly tells you how much insanity — politically incorrect sanity — has set in. I mean, it was just seven weeks ago with the truck jihadist, who also got in here through the Diversity Visa Lottery and also benefitted from the chain migration insanity that we had people saying ‘Oh yeah, we’ve got to get rid of it!

Former Young Turks Reporter Sues HuffPost for $23.5 Million Over ‘False Sexual Assault Allegations’

Jordan Chariton, a former reporter for the Young Turks, has filed a lawsuit against the Huffington Post for $23.5 million over their publishing of what he says were false sexual assault allegations.

Chariton, 31, was the target of a piece published in November entitled, “Jordan Chariton Accused by Former Employees of Sexual Abuse, Harassment” by HuffPost Contributor Christian Chiakulas.

The Huffington Post removed the story one day after publication, but refused to issue a retraction.

“HuffPo not only allowed career crippling defamation against me but they actively promoted it and held it up as news,” Chariton told the Gateway Pundit.

The story focused on an incident in May, when Carly Hammond, who was married, was with Chariton and several other friends in a hotel room engaging in group sexual acts. The article stated in the affirmative that he had “raped” her.

“I have written statements from the other two people in the room confirming that they heard me ask the woman receiving oral sex if she was Ok and if I could approach her intimately- and most importantly, heard her consent. During the night we had a few beers, but no one was drunk,” Chariton wrote of the encounter. The two eventually paired off where intimate acts continued, but he maintains there was no sexual penetration.

Hammond later broke off her marriage and flew to New York to again be with Chariton.

“Despite Mr. Chariton’s warnings to Miss Hammond to not throw away her marriage by flying to New York to be with him. Miss Hammond decided to immediately break off her marriage and flew across the country to be with Mr. Chariton. Miss Hammond would later admit to having consensual sex repeatedly with Mr. Chariton over the course of a week in New York before having second thoughts about her marriage,” the complaint, obtained by the Gateway Pundit, states.

Chiakulas told ShadowProof in November that there were “six accusers,” but that he did not know their names or identities. In an interview in December with H.A. Goodman, he claimed that Hammond was the only accuser.

The complaint alleges that the Huffington Post article did not disclose that it was the product of a Facebook discussion group with multiple people that had been conspiring to get Chariton fired. Additionally, Chiakulas did not seek comment from the two witnesses who were in the room during the alleged assault — both of whom have corroborated the claim that he had not sexually assaulted anyone and that there was affirmative consent.

The Huffington Post piece also failed to mention that Hammond, along with Zee Cohen, were planning to launch an news outlet called Staunch that would be direct competition to Chariton’s website, Truth Against the Machine.

In text exchanges, Zee told Chariton that they “knew she made it up,” but continued to help spread the claims because “I was mad that u fired me”(sic).

“Mr. Chiakulas did not disclose that he was not a neutral reporter having coached one co-conspirator in the Facebook group who had a non-sexual harassment story to change her narrative ‘because, we don’t want this to be a ‘Jordan Chariton is terrible’ story, we want it to be a ‘Jordan Chariton is a sexual predator story,’” the complaint alleges.

The complaint, filed in the New York Supreme Court, is seeking damages for libel per se, general defamation, libel by implication, and negligent injury to reputation.

When asked by the Gateway Pundit if he believes that Chariton will win, his lawyer Bill Moran stated, “he’s innocent. He better.”

“One thing that was particularly obscene is that HuffPost ‘promoted’ it after an editor viewed it pushing it into the top of Google searches and making it even come up as news when the original piece smearing him clearly was not the product or a journalistic process,” Moran explained. “HuffPost took a hoax, ran it all over town, and dressed it up as though it is news.”

Chuck Todd to Megyn Kelly: Trump ‘Seems To Get More Enraged’ by Female Criticism

Chuck Todd Megyn Kelly
Wednesday on NBC’s “Megan Kelly Today,” the host of “Meet the Press” Chuck Todd said President Donald Trump “seems to get more enraged when a woman criticizes him than when a man.” While discussing Trump’s tweet saying Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) would “do anything” for campaign contributions Todd said, “You know, what’s interesting is about how he reacted to her? She’s actually the fourth Democratic senator, I believe, to call for his resignation over the accusations of sexual harassment. The first three were men, Bernie Sanders, Jeff Merkley and I think Cory Booker.” He added, “The first time he seems to notice this is when Kirsten Gillibrand does it. Coincidence? I’m not sure. But that is something — it only adds I think fuel to this rage that’s building among many women who look at this and think, he seems to be tougher on women, he seems to get more enraged when a woman criticizes him than when a man criticizes him.” (h/t The Hill) Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

National Review Declares Class War On Republican Base

If you have a strong stomach, check out David French’s latest article at National Review which portrays the victory of Doug Jones as a triumph of New South Republicans:

“I was born in Opelika, Ala., in 1969. My parents were students at Auburn University, and after they graduated I spent my entire childhood in the South, moving from Alabama to Louisiana to Tennessee to Kentucky. I had the privilege of growing up in a region that was in the midst of one of the most remarkable and positive social and and cultural transformations in American history. I grew up in the New South.

Consider, for a moment, the pace of change. Just a few years before I was born, white men and women rioted to keep black Americans out of schools and colleges. The stench of institutionalized racism pervaded the region, oppressing American citizens and leaving the South a region apart. It wasn’t the Confederacy, but it wasn’t like the rest of America. Nowhere was American sin more pervasive or obvious. …”

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to you.

National Review‘s official position is that White working class communities “deserve to die” because they are “morally indefensible” and “economically, they are negative assets.” They also believe that Confederate monuments should be torn down. David French has decried the rise of “the tough guy right” and is living vicariously like other conservatives through Doug Jones.

In their view, the South was a horribly racist place until heroic business leaders stood up to evil segregationists by courting their votes. Roy Moore was “the zombie manifestation of the Old South” and “his supporters and apologists were walking, talking caricatures of the region’s very worst.” Instead of being a major defeat in the culture war, it was “the gasps of a dying way of life that was seeking to resuscitate itself through the twisted fury of partisan politics.”

It doesn’t matter to these cucks that Doug Jones and the Democrats are willing to play identity politics with full-throated appeals to black and Hispanic voters. They make emotional appeals to suburban women as a voting bloc. In contrast, these cucks go out of their way to sabotage their own candidate in order to virtue signal to the media that there is “decency” in America. Whites who vote in their own self-interest are “evil” while blacks who do so are heroic fighters for civil rights.

I hope you are listening because something very important is being communicated here by the conservative brain trust to White working class voters: they don’t believe in the social issues, they look down on their own voters as a bunch of retrograde bigots and have been simply exploiting your resentments to advance their neoliberal economic agenda. For generations, conservatives have made bank on these social issues – they’ve controlled the Supreme Court for over 20 years – only to cynically turn around and do favors big business and large donors while in office.

Far from being a triumph for New South Republicans (their candidate Luther Strange went down in defeat), Roy Moore’s loss in the Alabama Senate race heralds the impending demise of their monopoly on Southern politics. Their rise to power has always been predicated on addressing the cultural resentments of White working class voters. Having secured unified Republican control over nearly every Southern state government, the cucks now want to ditch the social issues and run only on their wildly unpopular economic agenda. The bigots are just going to have to accept that.

What is the argument for Republican majorities? If they aren’t going to do anything about abortion, political correctness, gay marriage, immigration, Confederate monuments and all these social issues, why should Southerners who care about these issues vote for them? Once that agenda is taken off the table, the only thing left to debate is taxes, healthcare, student loans, entitlements, etc. If the choice is between the Democrat or the Ryan agenda, many people would prefer the Democrat.

Doug Jones might not even be so bad in the Senate. The Republicans never had any intention of building the wall anyway and he could end up blocking the Ryan agenda on healthcare and entitlements. Also, if Doug Jones wants to be reelected in 2020, he will need the support of the Roy Moore voters after the Strange voters go back to supporting the Republican establishment candidate.

Black Lives Matter Leader DeRay McKesson Sues Fox News Host Jeanine Pirro

One of the most well-known faces of the Black Lives Matter movement, DeRay McKesson, has filed a lawsuit against Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Tuesday, alleging that she defamed him when she stated that he had incited violence against police.

McKesson was arrested in Louisiana during BLM protests against 2016 shooting of Alton Sterling, but the charges were later dropped. He was one of 186 protesters who later settled a lawsuit against the police for $136,000.

One of the officers on duty that day filed a counter-suit claiming that protesters had been violent, including hitting him in the face with a rock, and that McKesson was the one who incited the violence against him. He had also named Black Lives Matter in the lawsuit.

In September, a federal judge dismissed the officer’s lawsuit claiming that BLM could not be sued as it is a “social movement” and that the officer couldn’t prove that McKesson incited the violence.

Discussing the case on Fox & Friends, the fiery host blasted the judge’s decision to toss the lawsuit.

“In this particular case, Deray Mckesson, the organizer, actually was directing people, was directing the violence,” Pirro said following the ruling. “You’ve got a police officer who was injured, he was injured at the direction of DeRay Mckesson, DeRay Mckesson walks away with a hundred thousand dollars, for an organization that is amorphous, we got a problem in this country.”

McKesson’s lawsuit claims that her commentary endangered his safety.

“Pirro made these false statements of fact on the highest viewed morning cable show in the country, ‘Fox & Friends,’ which reaches over 1.7 million viewers,” Mckesson’s suit reads. “These statements of fact are false, and were either known to be false by Defendant Pirro or were made with reckless disregard for whether they were true.”

The New York Post reported on Wednesday that Fox News will be fighting the lawsuit.

“We informed Mr. McKesson’s counsel that our commentary was fully protected under the First Amendment and the privilege for reports of judicial proceedings,” the network said.

The Network also told TMZ that they will be defending this case and their hosts First Amendment rights “vigorously.

GOP Reaches Tax Cut Deal

When the 2018 midterms come around, I will have voted for the GOP to “Make America Great Again” only to get this lousy corporate tax cut for the donor class:

Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, says it will create jobs though. This is the definitive proof that the Republican Party isn’t going to be reformed and only caters to wealthy interests. The Tea Party tried to reform it. Donald Trump tried to reform it. Steve Bannon tried to reform it. And yet, it has remained in essence a country club party that exploits White working class anger over the racial and cultural decline of our country to advance a disgusting neoliberal economic agenda.

Note: I suppose today is a good day to officially kick off OD’s coverage of the 2018 midterm elections. I’ve really been doing it for several weeks now though.

Top Nuclear Official Suggests Obama Admin Lied About Uranium One Deal — GOP Senator Says He Has Stone Cold Proof

Did the Obama administration lie about key aspects of the Uranium One deal approval process? In a letter to Congress, a leading nuclear official appears to suggest so. 

Daily Caller reports:

The current chair of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) said that one of her Obama-appointed predecessors’ responses to Congress on a key aspect of the Uranium One deal did not capture the intricacies of the matter.

“I would note that, as your letter makes clear, the responses you have received have not fully depicted the complexity of this issue,” NRC chairwoman Kristine Svinicki said in response to  a question from Wyoming Republican Sen. John Barrasso during a Wednesday Senate hearing. […]

Barrasso also said he had evidence the Energy Department misled him on their role in the approval of uranium exports. He asked both agencies for documents to find out if he was intentionally misled.

“Uranium One did not need a specific NRC license to export U.S. uranium,” Barrasso said. “Instead, Uranium One only needed to be, and later was, listed as a supplier on a transport company’s NRC export license.”

Last week, Barrasso expanded his investigation into the infamous Clinton-Uranium One deal.

On Monday, Barrasso sent the following letter to the Department of Energy:

On March 21, 2011, former NRC Chairman Greg Jaczko responded to my letter on behalf of then-President Obama stating: ‘At this time, neither Uranium One Inc. nor ARMZ holds a specific NRC export license. In order to export uranium from the United States, Uranium One, Inc. or ARMZ would need to apply for and obtain a specific NRC license authorizing the export of uranium for use in reactor fuel’ … Recent reporting by The Hill uncovered that Uranium One was able to export uranium without obtaining a specific export license. Beginning in 2012, Uranium One exported U.S. uranium by ‘piggy-backing’ as a supplier on an export license held by the shipping company, RSB Logistic Services Inc.

The Wyoming GOP lawmaker kicked off his probe into the Clinton-Uranium One deal in October.

The Hill‘s John Solomon reported last week that the Obama Justice Department failed to call on the deal’s secret informant, William D. Campbell, when it came time to charging former Russian uranium industry executive Vadim Mikerinn.

“While he was Maryland’s chief federal prosecutor, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s office failed to interview the undercover informant in the FBI’s Russian nuclear bribery case before it filed criminal charges in the case in 2014, officials told The Hill,” reports Solomon.

“I’ve never heard of such a case unless the victim is dead. I’ve never heard of prosecutors making a major case and not talking to the victim before you made it, especially when he was available to them through the FBI,” Alan Dershowitz told The Hill.

Why I Secretly Wanted Moore to Lose: Brooks 2020!

Rep. Mo Brooks was the true Trumpian candidate in Alabama, which is why I endorsed him in the primary (herehere and here). When the accusations against Roy Moore first arose, I proposed that the president make a deal to replace Moore with Brooks.

Obviously, the GOP would be in a much better position right now if only Republicans had learned to hang on my every word.

Instead, everyone did exactly the wrong thing, and they got the worst of all possible worlds.

Trump should have endorsed Brooks in the primary, but he endorsed Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s pro-amnesty candidate, Luther Strange, on the advice of his son-in-law. Because who knows Alabama politics better than Jared Kushner? (I guess we can scratch the expression, “As goes Kushner, so goes Alabama!”)

Now Trump has lost twice in a state that voted for him by a nearly 3-to-1 margin over Hillary just last year. Apparently, Trump’s voters won’t blindly follow him, whatever he does. I wonder if this is relevant information for the midterms …

McConnell spent millions upon millions of dollars in nasty ads to defeat Mo Brooks in the primary, because Brooks takes sensible positions on immigration.

Can’t have that! McConnell pulled out all the stops to block Brooks, so he could keep big donors rolling in cheap foreign workers. Soon they’ll have all the labor they need—and a federal government run by Hugo Chavez. The Chamber of Commerce is “diversifying” Republicans out of their jobs.

Thanks to McConnell’s brilliant strategy of opposing Brooks, now he’s stuck with another Democrat—and a razor-thin Senate majority. McConnell fully deserves to lose his majority, but the rest of us don’t deserve the horror of a Democratic Senate. Unfortunately, I can’t figure out a way to do one and avoid the other.

The most status-conscious Republicans were hysterical about Roy Moore’s holy roller Christianity. I hope their tax cut bill dies. Should’ve backed Mo Brooks!

The good news is, even with the media carrying on 24-7 about Moore being a “CHILD MOLESTER!” and “PEDOPHILE,” the election was still a nail-biter. I salute the good people of Alabama and admire their contempt for the media.

But, otherwise, Moore’s loss is good news for patriotic Americans. First of all, the media would have set up tents outside Moore’s Senate office around the clock, capturing his every utterance, so they could broadcast anything stupid he said and demand that all Republicans defend it or disavow it.

Most important, now Mo Brooks can run in 2020 and return the seat to a respectable Alabamian who is rock-solid on the most important issue.

Everyone who screwed the pooch on this one better realize fast: All that matters is immigration. It’s all that matters to the country, and it’s all that matters for winning elections.

“Anti-establishment” is not a winning issue. Without immigration as the GOP’s lodestar, every election will be a rerun of the Tea Party from 2010 to 2012, when Republicans lost Senate seat after Senate seat, entirely in unforced errors.

We’ll have to watch helplessly as “establishment Republicans” fight “anti-establishment Republicans” over the right to milk a he-goat. Both sides will lose, and Democrats will sweep Congress and destroy our country.

Immigration was never a top issue for Moore, though, when pressed, he gave the right answers. That’s not a good way to prioritize.

Republicans who treat immigration as a backburner issue should be required to run on the issues they consider more important—in California. See how your arguments fare in a state that’s already been transformed by immigration. That’s your new country.

How stupid do you have to be to carry on about taxes, defense spending, ISIS, abortion or the Ten Commandments while intentionally losing on the one issue that will determine the outcome of all these other issues? Too stupid to be of any real help.

That’s why McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan keep producing loss after loss for Trump. They’ve turned the Trump presidency into the Bush presidency—but, this time, with Jared Kushner! (Obviously, any Republican president would desperately seek Kushner’s counsel—but could Jeb! have gotten Ivanka, too?)

GOP candidates are not going to win on hating the Republican establishment any more than Republicans are going to win on Donald Trump’s personality. The Alabama election proved both sides of that equation.

For years, Sen. Jeff Sessions, whose seat was being replaced in Alabama, was the one stalwart on immigration in the Senate—and a thorn in Mitch McConnell’s side. Sessions won his last re-election with 97 percent of the vote. (And then he voted for all those tax cut and partial-birth abortion bills you idiot Republicans are so obsessed with—and which would never get a hearing in California.)

What was Trump’s winning issue, again? Three syllables … sounds like “BUILD THE WALL”? During the campaign, every time Trump came out with a new proposal on immigration, other Republicans would hysterically denounce him—and then he’d soar in the polls.

Now that he’s tried everything else, can’t Trump try the issue that won him the election? We want to get tired of winning.

Joe Biden: ‘Tone-Deaf’ Trump Is Dumbing-Down the Nature of the Conversation


Wednesday on ABC’s “The View,” former Vice President Joe Biden said President Donald Trump’s tweet saying Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) would “do anything” for campaign contributions was “tone-deaf.” Biden said “Let’s take him — which is hard to do— I’m not being facetious — at his word that he would say the same thing about men. The idea that the president is so tone deaf not to understand how that phrase relative to a woman with his record, it almost doesn’t matter. First of all, I think it’s disgusting.” He continued, “Our children are listening.” He added, “Look our leaders use the kinds of language that is used so often today, we not only dumb down the nature of the conversation, but we allow the seamy side of society to act as if it had a legitimate place. I just hope there’s some movement across the board here in raising the quality and tone of the discussion.” Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump.

Booker: ‘I Was In Pain’ Listening to Franken’s Resignation – ‘He Was Right When He Talked About the Irony’

Screenshot
On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), who has called on President Trump to resign, said he was “in pain” listening to Senator Al Franken’s (D-MN) resignation speech and Franken was correct to note the irony of him resigning while President Trump stays. Booker stated that Franken “did the right thing” by resigning. He later added, “[W]hen it comes to situations like the president of the United States, I mean, come on, there [is] clear and compelling evidence. There is the president himself speaking towards doing this behavior. There are numbers — over a dozen women that have come forward. And so, that’s why I have such — I was in pain the day — listening to Al Franken’s remarks. Because he was right when he talked about the irony of what he is, doing the right thing, and stepping down from his position voluntarily, and you have a president of the United States sitting there where there is a message being sent to Americans, to young men, to young women that the highest office in the land, a guy sitting there, can get away with doing this behavior. And I find that utterly unacceptable.” Follow

Cuckservatives Celebrate Doug Jones Victory

David French is ecstatic that Doug Jones won in Alabama:

“Let’s plainly state the reason why Roy Moore lost tonight. Alabama conservatives took a stand. By the tens of thousands they either stayed home, voted for other candidates, or — in some instances — voted for Doug Jones. To say that conservatives beat Roy Moore is not to take one thing away from Doug Jones. He ran a smart race, he mobilized Democrats, and his voters came to the polls in large numbers — large enough to win. But this is Alabama. He could have run the perfect race, and he still would have lost — if conservatives supported their party’s nominee.”

I fully agree.

Everyone in Alabama knows that is what happened last night. A drive through the Huntsville or Birmingham suburbs or the wealthier areas of the smaller towns was enough to reveal that the country club crowd wanted Doug Jones to win. They all had Doug Jones signs out in their front yard.

“Tonight, Alabama conservatives told Steve Bannon and, yes, Donald Trump that integrity matters. They told their party that some victories aren’t worth the cost. They declared that partisanship isn’t worth grotesque moral compromise. The deep South said no to Roy Moore’s bigotry. It said no to his ignorance and malice.”

I admired Roy Moore BECAUSE of his integrity. He was twice removed from the Alabama Supreme Court over his religious beliefs. A conservative would have simply folded, declared that gay marriage is “the law of the land” and accused anyone who opposed it of “bigotry.” But anyway, I grant the point that the college educated, suburban voters who voted for Luther Strange – who are a minority in Alabama – look down their noses at the rural, working class voters who have given them absolute power in this state. As I said last night, they don’t believe in the “social issues” and only give them lip service.

“To give you a sense of the magnitude of the conservative rebellion tonight, consider some numbers. Donald Trump won Alabama by 28 points. Jeff Sessions had such a hammerlock on this seat that he ran unopposed in 2014 — collecting more than 97 percent of the vote. The closest Senate election in a generation was a 19 point GOP victory in 2002. In other words, what happened tonight wasn’t the result of changed hearts and minds in a tiny few swing votes. It was a mass rebellion.”

What is the result of this mass rebellion going to be? The result will be the death of the Trump agenda in Congress. In other words, the GOP is going to pass the massive corporate tax cut for wealthy donors, but when the 2018 midterms get here there isn’t going to be a border wall. More importantly, the mass rebellion proved that the GOP doesn’t care about the social issues.

Every election cycle we are told that we have to vote for the GOP because of judges, immigration, gay marriage or some other polarizing cultural issue. In reality, the GOP just wants the tax cuts, deregulation, entitlement reform and others things like that and considers the rest of the agenda to be “bigotry” and laments having to be associated with it. The lesson was sent loud and clear to White working class voters that the social issues are a ruse and party unity is a one way street.

Where do we go from here? The answers are obvious. Nominate conservatives with integrity. Retake the seat. Reject the vicious, malicious politics of men like Steve Bannon. Center the political fight around ideas and values that men and women are proud to vote for. In the meantime, Alabama conservatives have sent their message. May the GOP hear it loud and clear.

Where do we go from here?

The 2018 midterm elections are coming up in Alabama. Mark my words, the sons of bitches who sat out the election last night are going come back next year and say, “you guys, we got to have party unity. We got to stop the Democrats.” We’ve got nearly a year to discourage White working class voters from voting for the party of management and Corporate America.

The same tactic that was used against Roy Moore last night can be used much more effectively against conservative politicians in the South. Just don’t vote for them. Let them go down in defeat. Understand that the “social issues” aren’t real and are just bait to get you to vote for the donor class agenda for they can do things like take away your healthcare and cut the corporate tax rate.

Schumer Target Of Forged Document Claiming Sexual Harassment

Ok, here’s the problem with this story. Why would someone put out something that was such an obvious fake that would 100% be found to be a fake? Answer: because something else is coming that this is meant to divert or cast doubt on. Via Daily Caller: Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer contacted Capitol Hill […]
