Sarah Palin barnstorms Alabama: ‘Roy Moore was deplorable before it was cool to be deplorable’

Published

on

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin campaigned for former Judge Roy Moore at a wall-less barn in Alabama Thursday evening.

“Judge Roy Moore was deplorable before it was cool to be deplorable!” Palin said of the insurgent Republican who was twice suspended as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.

Moore is facing interim Sen. Luther Strange, who was appointed by Republican Governor Robert Bently to serve until September 26 special election for the US Senate seat vacated when Jeff Sessions was confirmed as Attorney General.

“I don’t think there’s a cooler nickname than ‘The 10 Commandments Judge,'” Palin noted, referencing the 2003 controversy that resulted in Moore being removed from office by the Alabama Court of the Judiciary. Moore was suspended as Chief Judge in 2016 and resigned in April while announcing he would be running in the special election.

President Donald Trump weighed heavily upon the rally, which occured immediately after Moore offered lots of red meat in a televised debate.

“We voted for a big beautiful wall and not more amnesty deals,” Palin said.

President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have campaigned heavily for interim Sen. Strange.

“A vote for Judge Moore isn’t a vote against the president,” Palin claimed. “It is a vote for the people’s agenda that elected the president.”

Tribe has argued 36 cases before the United States Supreme Court and taught at Harvard Law for 50 years. He co-authored the 2018 book To End a Presidency: The Power of Impeachment with Joshua Matz.

"Everyone was in the loop, it was no secret. That was the testimony from Ambassador Gordon Sondland yesterday as he implicated the president, Secretary of State, White House chief of staff, and former National Security Advisor John Bolton and other administration officials in the plot to bribe the president of Ukraine to publicly launch an investigation into Joe Biden in exchange for U.S. military aid to Ukraine that was authorized by Congress and that the president was withholding," O'Donnell reported.

Shep Smith blasts autocrats in first public remarks since leaving Fox News — and donates $500,000 to protect journalists

Published

on

On Thursday, for the first time since exiting Fox News, reporter Shepard Smith gave public comments at the International Press Freedom Awards — and used the occasion to blast autocratic leaders who use their power to suppress journalism.

"Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomenon. We don’t have to look far for evidence of that,” said Smith. "Our belief a decade ago that the online revolution would liberate us now seems a bit premature, doesn’t it? Autocrats have learned how to use those same online tools to shore up their power. They flood the world of information with garbage and lies, masquerading as news. There’s a phrase for that."
