Roy Moore in anti-Semitism storm as he says Jewish billionaire George Soros will go to HELL

[bold]Accused pedophile Roy Moore in anti-Semitism storm as he says Jewish billionaire George Soros will go to HELL - then suggests all non-Christians will too[/bold]

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore was accused Tuesday of launching an anti-Semitic attack after he said Jewish financier George Soros was going to the place where people who don't accept God's 'salvation are going' – meaning hell.

The alleged pedophile got into the new row as accusations he sexually assaulted teenage girls and has lied about dating high school girls when in his thirties mounted.

In comments on Christian conservative host Bryan Fischer’s radio show, Moore described Soros, a billionaire who bankrolls liberal causes, as having an agenda that is 'not American culture.'

Soros was the subject of a breathless story in conservative Brietbart.com that accused his foundation of being 'in Alabama to Register Convicted Felons to Vote Against Roy Moore.'

'Soros is trying to alter the voting populous. That’s true. He’s pushing an agenda. And his agenda is sexual in nature,' said Moore.

'No matter how much money he’s got, he's still going to the same place that people who don't recognize God and morality and accept his salvation are going,' Senate Republican candidate Roy Moore said of billionaire George Soros, who is Jewish

The attack on George Soros was not addressed by the White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders when she was asked about it. President Trump's daughter, son-in-law and three of his grandchildren are Jewish

'His agenda is liberal and not what Americans need. It’s not American culture. Soros comes from another world that I don’t identify with. I wish I could fact him, face him directly,' Moore continued as he discussed Soros.

Then Moore had a message for Soros and others he said 'don't recognize God and morality.'

'And I’d tell him the same thing. No matter how much money he’s got, he's still going to the same place that people who don't recognize God and morality and accept his salvation are going. And that’s not a good place,' he said.

Fischer worked for the American Family Association until the group distanced itself from him, TalkingPointsMemo reported.

Moore's attack follows a Breitbart.com story that a Soros-funded 'army' was 'in Alabama to Register Convicted Felons to Vote Against Roy Moore.'

One anti-Moore conservative group, the Reagan battalion, called his attack on Soros 'straight up anti-semitism.'

And Rabbi Jack Moline, president of Interfaith Alliance, told AL.com: 'Roy Moore owes George Soros and the entire Jewish community an apology for comments he made that are clearly anti-Semitic.'

Moore's spokesman however said that the comments were 'anti-George Soros' and therefore no apology was needed.

Birmingham, ALABAMA — Court documents related to Tina Johnson, an Alabama woman who claims that Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore groped her in his office decades ago, may raise questions about Johnson’s motives in making the accusation.

The documents, reviewed by Breitbart News, show that Moore represented Johnson’s mother in a nasty custody case for Johnson’s then 12-year-old son, Daniel Sitz. In the case, Johnson was repeatedly painted by Moore’s client as an unfit, absent, and unstable mother and was accused of taking her son from his elementary school against his will. Johnson’s mother was ultimately awarded custody in the case.

One affidavit signed by Johnson’s mother while she was represented by Moore accused Johnson of having a “violent nature” and noted that she “has been treated by a psychiatrist when she was approximately 15 years of age.” Johnson was a teenage mother.

Separate criminal documents show that, as late as 2010, Johnson was arrested and pled guilty to felony fraud charges related to checks belonging to a family member. She also entered a court drug program.

Speaking to AL.com, Johnson first went public with the claim that Moore groped her when she was “on legal business with her mother” in 1991. The website noted that “Johnson reached out to AL.com” to discuss her alleged experience with Moore.

The website related that Johnson was “at the office to sign over custody of her 12-year-old son to her mother, with whom he’d been living.”

Johnson claimed that, after the two met with Moore, her mother walked out of the office door first and that, as Johnson was walking out, Moore grabbed her buttocks from behind. “He didn’t pinch it; he grabbed it,” she claims.

Johnson claims that she was so surprised by Moore’s alleged actions that she didn’t mention anything to her mother — even though Johnson described her mother as sitting next to her in Moore’s office just before the alleged incident.

Johnson’s mother, Mary Katherine Cofield, had hired Moore, then a private attorney, to represent her in the custody case for Johnson’s son, Daniel Sitz. The custody documents, filed by Moore, refer to Johnson by her married name at the time, Tina Sitz.

AL.com reported that it “located the court documents from 1991, detailing the custody transfer.”

Years ago a local mayor in my redstate hellhole was posting antisemitic memes on our newspaper forums. He still had tons of support until people started publicizing it online and it got some minor traction in the news, then he lost the next election, mostly because people wanted to be antisemitic but didn't want it made public.

Nowadays Republicans don't care that it's out in the open. This will probably win him votes.

by Anonymousreply 27Last Tuesday at 3:43 PM

The website did not report on the nastiness of the soap opera-like custody case or that Moore’s client filed numerous court documents with allegations against Johnson. In one affidavit, Cofield stated that Johnson “has a violent nature and has been treated by a psychiatrist when she was approximately 15 years of age.”

Another document, signed by Moore, stated that Cofield — and not Johnson — was the “most fit and proper person” to have custody of Daniel Sitz.

Johnson’s son had resided with his grandmother, Cofield, since he was nine months old. Cofield says that, during those years, she provided Daniel with food, clothing, and shelter “without any assistance” from Johnson. A judge officially granted Cofield full custody on September 23, 1991.

In the custody documents, Johnson is accused of taking her son against his will. A September 11, 1991, affidavit signed by Daniel says that two days earlier, Johnson took him from elementary school “against my will and made me go to her home.”

An affidavit signed by Johnson’s mother claimed that Johnson took Daniel from school “forcefully and without my permission.”

Immediately after the school incident, documented by Moore’s office, Cofield was granted temporary custody of Daniel until the September 23 hearing at which she received permanent custody.

Daniel stated that he wants to “live with my grandmother with whom I have lived as long as I can remember.”

The AL.com article, meanwhile, mentioned in one sentence in the 18th paragraph of its story that Johnson “has pled guilty to writing bad checks, and for third-degree theft of property, which she said stemmed from family disagreement over the care of her late stepfather.”

Criminal and court records reviewed by Breitbart News find that she was arrested on February 25, 2010, for the felony charge of criminal possession of a forged instrument and theft by deception. She spent one day in jail and was released on bond.

The case revolved around the charges of intent to “defraud, possess or utter” checks in the amounts of $288, $129.96, $259.92, $300, and $170 respectively. She was also charged with obtaining or exerting unauthorized control over five checks for $25 each with intent to “deprive the owner of said property.”

Those five checks were in the name of “W.G. Cofield,” ostensibly her late stepfather. Cofield personally appeared to file charges against Johnson, criminal records show.

Johnson claims that Moore groped her in 1991 at his private law practice on Third Street in Gadsden, Alabama.

Last week, Breitbart News interviewed Delbra Adams, Moore’s former longtime secretary and judicial assistant. Adams said that, in her 13 years of working for Moore, she never saw or experienced any inappropriate conduct toward women.

Adams worked for Moore in 1991 at the time of Johnson’s accusations. Adams’s desk was right outside his office door at the time. Adams’ name was signed as a notary on one of the custody documents filed in Johnson’s case on behalf of Johnson’s mother, Cofield.

Numerous attempts to reach Johnson for comment were unsuccessful.

Moore has strenuously denied the numerous accusations against him.

[quote]If the African-American population in Alabama actually showed at the voting precincts, Jones would win. There is not enough motivated white Democrats to do it alone.

I Googled this and now I'm not so sure that's true. Here's the first of two articles I'll link:

[quote][bold]Jones rallies black voters to turn out against Moore[/bold]

[quote]Jones is leaning on his own civil rights record as a federal prosecutor and emphasizing education to maximize support from black voters. But years of Democratic losses have weakened voter interest and atrophied the state party, which is also riven by conflict between the different factions that remain. That has forced Jones to build a coalition almost from scratch in the last few months, leading some to criticize Jones for starting black outreach too late.

[quote]“The challenge that Doug has — that most Democrats have — is that there is no party infrastructure ... to organize voter turnout other than local Democratic parties,” said Mark Kennedy, a former chairman of the Alabama Democratic Party. “So Doug, unfortunately, is probably on his own when it comes to Election Day.”

[quote]Jones’ outreach has only recently hit top gear, according to African-American leaders in the state. Jones’ campaign had to navigate rifts and competition between the Alabama Democratic Party and other Democratic groups — including the Alabama New South Coalition and the Alabama Democratic Conference — as it got organized this fall. The final-month allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore also lent new urgency to what had previously been seen as a very long-shot campaign for Jones.

[quote]“I was very concerned early on that too few efforts were being made to organize and mobilize the black vote,” said Alabama state Sen. Hank Sanders. “But there are certainly more efforts in the last week or so.”

[quote]Faya Rose Toure, the lead activist with the Alabama New South Coalition, said she’s directed her team’s efforts as part of its “Vote or Die” campaign to focus on Alabama’s “Black Belt” region in the final few weeks of the campaign. Alabama’s black vote is concentrated in its biggest cities, but there is also a sizable share in smaller counties like Selma’s, which is two-thirds African-American.

[quote]“At the last minute we had a situation where there were hardly no resources in the Black Belt for Doug Jones’ campaign and now two weeks before they put resources here,” Toure said, adding that now Democrats have finally come in to help. “They do have people on the ground here. But it’s just so limited.”

[quote]Jones has cleared one key hurdle with voters: Lavernia Willoughby, a parade-goer in Selma, said she believes the Democrat can defeat Moore. Jones’ stronger-than-usual polling numbers and Moore’s misconduct allegations have inspired hope in some black voters that they could help a candidate win statewide for the first time in years.

[quote]“All we gotta do is vote,” Willoughby said, adding that Jones “needs everybody to vote for him. He needs everybody to come out and vote for him.”

[quote]But not every black supporter on Saturday was as optimistic. Chevonne Norfleet said she plans to back Jones, but she paused and conceded worries about Jones’ chances as she stood outside a barbershop.

[quote]“Maybe in the black people’s eye,” Norfleet said. “It’s a Republican state.”

by Anonymousreply 72Last Wednesday at 3:47 AM

And excerpts from the other article:

[quote][bold]Don’t Blame Black Voters If Doug Jones Loses to Roy Moore[/bold]

[quote]The narrative that black voters can swing the seat for the Democrats has become a popular media meme, and, some fear, a ready-made excuse if the voters of Alabama send an accused serial child molester to Washington. Black Alabamians, who overwhelmingly support Moore’s opponent Doug Jones and whose political leaders are working toward a victory for him in the close-polling race, say “not so fast.”

[quote]“I’ve noticed there have been articles, in The Washington Post, on AL.com etc., about the black vote,” said Judge Steven L. Reed, a probate judge and the chief election official of Montgomery County, and the son of the longtime leader of the Alabama Democratic Conference, Joe Reed. “I don’t really think this election is a referendum on the black vote. The question has to be asked, what about the good white people?… The question is will the good white people do the right thing and vote for the person and not the party.”

[quote]“His message has been simply, ‘I prosecuted the men for the “four little girls” bombing’ and that’s it,” Guster said. “There’s no message about what he’s going to do for the black community, what else he has done besides the prosecution to enhance the black community, and what he has done to earn our vote.”

[quote]A text message targeting black voters and obtained by The Daily Beast reads: “Hi ___, this is Cara with Doug Jones for Senate. As U.S. Attorney he took on the Klan and convicted two Klansmen for the murder of four little girls. I’m supporting Doug because he’ll fight for us - can he count on your vote on Dec. 12th?”

[quote]Guster said the Klan prosecution has also been the singular message in Jones’ Facebook ads targeting black audiences, and he said that in some ways, the campaign has tried to have it both ways, even attempting to appeal to white Alabamians with a Facebook ad in which Jones praises the tactical skill of the Confederate army to explain that he would fight for bipartisanship in congress.

[quote]“It’s one of those situations where he feels that he’s just going to get the black vote,” Guster said. “It’s very similar to what Hillary did, where she did not reach the black community with a message of what she would do [for African Americans] if she wins. The message was: ‘Trump is bad, vote for me.’ Jones’ message is ‘Moore is bad, vote for me.’ There’s no concise message to earn our votes.”

[quote]“The black vote only makes up 25 percent of the electorate,” Reed said, noting that in addition to the allegations of preying on teenage girls when he was a prosecutor in his thirties, Moore, 70, opposed removing segregationist language from the state constitution, something neither man mentioned the Jones campaign has played up with black voters. “This is really about what the GOP voters of Alabama are going to do. This is another [George] Wallace-like moment that will determine how people view Alabama. Do they view Alabama in a segregation-era context or in a modern context.”

[…]

[quote]Still, for black Alabamans involved in politics, the Senate contest does represent a chance to register and energize black voters who have seen serial disappointments at the polls despite achieving record turnout for Obama in 2008 and 2012, and who have watched Trump try to dismantle Obama’s achievements one by one. And Reed, who was a Clinton delegate in 2016, said the party would be wise to take advantage of it.

[quote]“I think the attitude here is one of hopeful optimism that with each new election there comes an opportunity to put our agenda forward and show the electorate that we have better ideas than the Republican Party for the average Alabaman,” Reed said. “There’s also a pragmatism that’s attached to that, [but] we’re still going to work to get out the vote” on Dec. 12.

And one more thing

[quote][bold]Court records suggest Roy Moore dated wife while she was still married[/bold]

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore's account of when he began dating his wife Kayla would place the start of their courtship before her divorce from her first husband, according to court documents.

This comes as the Moore campaign's defense of the retired judge against multiple allegations of sexual misconduct hinges on disputing minute details of the accusers' versions of events.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Washington Examiner asked Moore's campaign to explain apparent contradictions between his account of his relationship with Kayla Kisor and information contained in public records.

“Regardless of when they met, Judge and Kayla did not date while she was still with her ex-husband or legally married,” campaign spokesman Brett Doster responded by email.

Moore claims in his 2005 book “So Help Me God” to have met Kayla at a church gathering the week before Christmas in 1984.

“I was determined to get to know her, but Kayla, divorced and with a beautiful little girl, Heather, who was nearly a year old, was not interested in a relationship with anyone,” he later wrote of the encounter.

Divorce records obtained by the Washington Examiner show that Kayla, however, had not yet even filed for divorce from her first husband, John Charles Heald, by the time she caught Moore’s attention at the Christmas gathering. In fact, Kayla and Heald had only just separated on Dec. 1, 1984, two weeks before her and Moore’s serendipitous introduction.

The same records show Kayla filed for divorce at a courthouse in Floyd County, Ga., on Dec. 28, 1984. The divorce was finalized nearly four months later on April 19, and a permanent custody judgment was issued on Jan. 9, 1989.

By Moore’s account, he and Kayla began dating “soon after” she visited the law office of his colleague “early in the new year” of 1985. They dated for “about a year,” he claimed, before becoming engaged and then married on Dec. 14, 1985.

That would lead readers to believe the pair began dating in late 1984 or early 1985, a period during which court records show his bride-to-be was still legally married to Heald and would be until the spring.

"That was always an assumption," a source with knowledge of Kayla's first marriage said when asked whether she dated Moore before finalizing her divorce. The same source said Moore gave Kayla's daughter a puppy for Valentine's Day in 1985, further suggesting that he and Kayla were seeing each other at that time.

The overall discrepancy is what prompted the Washington Examiner to contact Moore’s campaign, a request his spokesman characterized as “really scraping the bottom of the barrel.”

I have stopped having any hope that there are enough voters in Alabama evolved enough to deny Moore a place in the Senate. An intelligent, informed colleague of mine is from there. When she goes home the mean IQ goes up while she visits but drops below 70 when she leaves.
