According to the official Twitter page of Roy Moore for U.S. Senate, President Donald Trump called the senate hopeful earlier today and told Moore, "Go Get'em, Roy!"
"Just got off the phone with President Trump who offered his full support and said he needs a fighter to help him in the US Senate," Moore tweeted approximately 3 hours ago, as we go to press.
"I look forward to fighting alongside the President to #MAGA!," Moore concludes his tweet.
According to a new CBS poll, Moore is up 6 points in the race.
In addition, results of the poll indicate that a majority of Alabama voters are not convinced by unsubstantiated accusations of sexual misconduct by Roy Moore.
"A total of 54 percent -- a majority -- of likely voters in Alabama said that the allegations are either definitely false, probably false, or that they have 'haven’t heard enough yet to say' whether they believe the allegations against Moore," Breitbart reports.
"Let's see the evidence," I stated in an earlier column.
"To borrow from Christopher Hitchens, if we are expected to condemn Roy Moore apart from evidence, we can just as easily -- and more rationally (innocent until proven guilty) -- not condemn Roy Moore in the absence of evidence. Without evidence, a 'bombshell' becomes a dud. Sizzle becomes drizzle. Your parade is hereby rained upon," I wrote November 9.
Thus far, we have no evidence. Just accusations. Plus, there is no way these politically timed accusations against Roy Moore could ever be properly and fairly evaluated when thrown at him some 4 weeks before Election Day.
Of course the WPost knows this. Of course the D.C. Establishment knows this.
This is why I say what we are witnessing is structured as a con: It's a "structured con" -- made to look like a search for truth and justice with regard to the treatment of women when in fact the timing makes certain that no just or fair assessment is possible.
The real target: To strike a bull's-eye on behalf of the D.C. establishment's objective to destroy Roy Moore and keep him (and other Constitutionalists) out of the Senate.
Thus the con, thus the lie. Thus the voter wisdom of skepticism in the face of a con no matter how much hand-wringing and peer pressure that media mobs and other mobs try to exert.
These accusations smack of serious, underhanded politics.
They do not bespeak seriousness about the pursuit of fairness and justice -- either with regard to Roy Moore or with regard to a putative concern about the ill-treatment of women.
Elections are more important than this. And so is how we treat women in society.
Alabama voters go to the polls Tuesday, December 12.
Is Roy Moore Finished?
