More on Moore, Yearbooks and Diving Off the Clinton Ship

By Al Perrotta Published on November 15, 2017

Let me start off with a question: Is it too much to ask for a candidate who keeps his hands off our money AND our daughters? 

Moving on. 

Roy Moore Latest

When it was announced Wednesday afternoon that Roy Moore’s lawyer and campaign manager would be holding a presser, I thought, “The way this story is going he’s probably had a heart attack.” It’d be the greatest “dive” outside the World Cup or a Don King boxing match. But no, they came up with something better.

Remember the yearbook Moore’s latest accuser showed the world? The one signed “Roy Moore, D.A.”? Moore’s attorney Phillip L. Jauregui insisted Moore doesn’t think he ever signed anything with a “D.A.” He wasn’t even a district attorney at the time. However, says Jauregui, there was a time when the initials D.A. would appear next to Moore’s name: when he was a circuit judge in Etowah County and his assistant would add her initials near his signature on filings. 

Why’s that matter? Remember Moore’s accuser saying she hadn’t had contact with Moore since his alleged assault? Well, they did have contact. In fact, Roy Moore was the judge assigned to her divorce case. She would have been in that court and copies of filings in the case would bear that same Roy Moore D.A. signature that shows up in the yearbook. 

Moore’s team wants the yearbook handed over to a “neutral custodian” so “we can determine is it genuine or is it a fraud.” 

Yup. I have to say I didn’t see that twist coming.

Perhaps I should have. With Gloria Allred involved I should have.

I was still in California for the 2010 governor’s race between Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican businesswoman Meg Whitman. Meg was running strong. Jerry couldn’t even articulate why he wanted the job. Whitman was hustling throughout the state making inroads with the Hispanic community.

But then Gloria Allred entered the picture. She dragged before the cameras Whitman’s former maid Nicky Diaz. Diaz, with the tears flowing, and Allred’s hand on her shoulder in that now familiar staging, wept about how Whitman had cruelly fired her. (Whitman had discovered she was an illegal immigrant who had given her husband false papers.) All you heard for days on end was how horribly Whitman treated Diaz, what a hater of Hispanics she was. And Diaz? She was “the courageous Rosa Parks” of the Latino community.

Even by Hollywood standards, Allred chews the scenery. 

However, the story stopped Whitman’s momentum and may well have cost her the election. L.A. Times columnist Gregory Rodriguez admitted “It was really the business with the housekeeper that hurt her.”

Point One: Allred is experienced at the cruel slurring of political foes via showy press conferences. 

Point Two:  Allred exposed Diaz as an illegal immigrant. Diaz could have been deported. She could have easily been charged with identity fraud. Gloria Allred used a woman as a weapon in a Senate campaign and didn’t care if the woman got hurt in the process. The days to come will show if she did so again.

Meanwhile, Allred responded to the request for the yearbook. She says she’ll only turn over the yearbook if the Senate agrees to hold hearings on Moore. Is that an answer that brings light to the situation or brings about more bright lights for Allred and overwhelming pressure on her client? Let’s just say the accuser would have been better off picking a lawyers name out of a phone book.

From the judge who allegedly chased teens to the President who rode the Lolita Express

Liberals Turning on Bill Clinton?

In the past 48 hours, several liberal writers and publications have all mysteriously and suddenly decided that Bill Clinton is, after all, a sexual predator. Just hear the headlines: The Atlantic “Reckoning with Bill Clinton’s Sex Crimes”; Vox “Bill Clinton Should Have Resigned”; and miracle of miracles from the New York Times, “I Believe Juanita.” 

Juanita Broaddrick — who said Clinton raped her when he was Arkansas Attorney General and was mocked and ignored for decades — put it well:

Hell did freeze over. But why? Only because the Clintons are over. As the Stream’s Liberty McArtor points out in her new article, if Hillary had won, these outlets wouldn’t be calling Bill a predator. In fact, writes Liberty:

Imagine if Hillary had won. The Weinsteins, Spaceys, Halperins and Louis C.K.s would not have quit their nasty habits. They’d still be celebrities at Democratic fund-raisers, posing for pictures with the new feminist president herself.

Further, not only did Hillary lose, but criminal investigations into the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton’s Uranium One paydays — or pay-to-play days — are in the wind.

Their usefulness has been expended. Their fearsome control is waning. Donna Brazile need not worry about snipers. (Just the sniping of Clinton holdouts.)

Still, there are some who haven’t gotten the message. All over Twitter today you will see tweets and articles from news organizations saying things like “Fox News Anchor Destroys Conspiracy Theory About Hillary Clinton and Uranium One.” They’re talking about a segment by Fox News anchor Shepherd Smith. Smith’s challenges the story, but his account left more holes than a drunk accupuncturist. An earlier Stream story provides some idea why.

    It is rather amazing the way this is playing out, and in a positive way for a change. Along the lines of media persons becoming open to the Bill Clinton accusers, a CNN anchor actually said maybe we were too hard on them or unfair. Wow. They were all dismissed out of hand – period – at the time and up until now. Juanita Broderick is so well spoken, all of them able to tell their stories coherently. It’s not greedy revenge harboring, but such a need for justice to come forth, and those who have thus far set the example of getting away with so much and being above the law. This is actually a positive development, this new openness to accusers with popular public figures, who have essentially played a double and triple+ game for so long.

      Please don’t be duped, if it were the D facing the allegations there wouldn’t be this media intensity. Any supposed remorse over Clinton will be short lived and are crocodile tears. The media has a long way to go to become credible that their intensity isn’t politically motivated. When the name Bill Clinton is on par with Harvey Weinstein in the media then we’re getting somewhere.

      • Chip Crawford

        Well, good brother, I’d humbly caution you the same. I am wise to the hit squad and their m.o. Unfortunately, those on the ground in Moore’s home turf know his pattern all too well. We need to discern each case lest we indeed be duped by a person living a double life, as Moore appears to do. When the person is your own, you have a way of looking to his better self and working with that, as they do down there. Please note that all of the ones being exposed right now in all areas are real cases. There’s a shaking going on of what can be shaken, so that what remains will be more stable. I really think so.

        • Paul

          I think you’re misinterpreting my comments here a bit. As I said in a seperate comment, I have no idea if he did or did not do what is being alleged at this point. If he did I think his detractors have been sitting on this for such a time as this, to maximize their own gain in bringing him down. The women are just pawns in a political game to get a senate seat. In other words this isn’t about sexual misconduct, it is politics.

          Now we have a sitting Senator Al Franken finally admitting he did wrong to a lady and there’s even picts to support his bad conduct. I hope to be proven wrong but I fully expect nothing will happen to him of consequence.

          • Chip Crawford

            Michael Brown has a new article about features of all of this. I understand the cynicism, things going that way so long. But sometimes mercy has run its string, and judgment comes. We can hope that it may be that season now and that all this hidden evil be rightly purged from our nation, including the church, where applicable.

          • Paul

            I’m all for purging evil across the board, but I’m already hearing the media hedging about Al Franken, as if his admission and apology resolves the issue. The double standard is alive and well until such time as we hear all the Ds and talking heads demanding Franken resign, and he complies.

          • tz1

            Doug Jones is a rabid pro-Abort, so I don’t see how this very visible evil that no one will talk about – the Abortion Holocaust – will be purged when we insist on letting demonic Democrats win if there are even accusations that Republicans might be less than perfect.
            Roy Moore has accusations from 4 decades ago which are hard to verify, but we are all concerned.
            Doug Jones could have raped a half dozen women and filmed it and it could come out tomorrow and these same people wouldn’t care.
            The Senate Ethics Committee is a judicial body and can then ask all these
            accusers under oath questions – Moore too – and do forensic examination – and we can see if there is actual evidence of guilt. Moore can be expelled if so and someone else appointed for the remainder of the term.
            Unless you would rather have a pro-Abort, pro-LGBTQ Senator for 6 years.

          • Paul

            My cynicism is currently proving right in regards to Moore vs Franken. Moore is still regularly reported on but Franken is old news, and still in office. We’ll see now what happens with Conyers, I expect a wrist slap at best. But of course Moore is the only one who is suposed to drop out giving the D a free pass to the Senate. The agenda is alive and well.

  • Patmos

    The strategy to take down Moore is not one that needs to be proven in any court of law, just the court of opinion. They know that voters don’t read much past maybe a headline or two, and if they do, they have operatives in the media to sway things their way. Then on top of all that they stagger the release of the allegations so that there is no let up of headlines, and then of course they come out with all this right before election day so that all the public digests is this bombardment designed strictly and solely to gain votes.

    Again, all they have to do is persuade just enough to convince a voter to vote against Moore, they do not need to present evidence that would convict in a court of law.

    • Chip Crawford

      The Gadsden Mall banned Moore for picking up young girls there … public record.

      • Patmos

        Just tellin’ it like it is, and how this stuff works. They take anything they can, toss truth out the window because truth is not the aim here, and blow it up into something it’s not. It’s essentially the antithesis of damage control, but it’s from the same school of thought and subtle mind manipulation brought to the forefront of politics and advertising during last century by Edward Bernays and the like.

        • Chip Crawford

          I agree that fabrications happen, but not this time. The people in the area know Judge Moore’s pattern of this behavior – an “open secret” there. The Mall would not ban a public figure on the basis of rumors, but the problem his behavior created for them. He is appreciated for many things, but known for liking young girls. Likely not everyone knows the extent of his behavior. I am very sorry about it because I appreciated his stands, but it’s a case of a double life, and it does not deserve promotion.

  • Tom Rath

    Now learning that Moore was not the judge actually working the divorce case, and that after delays, Moore merely signed the final order and that there’s no evidence there was ever an actual hearing with Moore present with the parties.

    Oh and now this…

    30-year-old Moore, after being rebuffed by the high school girl he’s been stalking at her mall job, CALLS HER SCHOOL and gets her out of trig class to try again?

    Yeah, nothing wrong with that. #eyeroll

  • Howard Rosenbaum

    I’m waiting for some accusations on Allred to surface. This shyster , this malevolent mouth piece for the malignant . She who sold out her own progeny to popular opinion to proffer her own political posturing. Maybe we need to hold a hearing on the propensity for prior Allred patronizing pawns disappearing from the” scene of the crime” so to speak when their polluted proclamations of prejudice don’t prevail ..?! ( alright too much fun w/alliteration )
    The sudden contrition by the MSM over their negligence to pursue these types of allegations or worse substantiated accusations when it was a William Jefferson Clinton matter is laughable. Though only for the moment. This as Mr Perrotta suggests is the next trend. No problem exploiting the sexual misdeeds of the paternal patron of this”washed up” criminal enterprise. Especially when it lends the appearance of “fair play’ to their aggression against a conservative Christian & “anti LBGTQ” target as is the likes of the Judge.
    Sure, theres a whole lot at stake here. Should Judge Moore manage to pull off a victory , which it looks like he will in spite of all this effort to smear him, then the real battle , both for the liberals & the establishment elites begins. That is a battle that both of these sides must prevent . At any cost. As for the questionable particulars of the younger ass’t attorney Moore ? Well theres likely some correlation w/real events here. Remember , theres no truth like a half truth . No truth – where theres a half truth …& ain’t that just like the devil ….?!

    This is such a good article. It is well written and gently points out that forgeries and fake news can seriously damage people’s lies. The forgery of Bush 43’s military record nearly cost him an election. But the anger that media ran with it may have been a blessing in disguise.
    Can We the People be surprised at media overkill, forgery, haranguing the good guy?
    No. Especially Christians know that they must put on the whole armor of God and stand in his might for the devil will do anything to destroy good and to elevate bad.
    The fact that Allred et al refuse to release the yearbook says she is frightened of charges involving conspiring to support a forgery that might cost her law degree [such as it is.]
    Christian voters in Alabama need to stand for the good guy, feel at least contempt for all who attacked their Senator simply for the purpose of swaying their opinion in an election, and go to the polls to vote for Moore.
