mbshell election news. Religious right US Senate candidate, Roy Moore, of Alabama, allegedly sexually harassed and/or assaulted four young girls, age 14 to 18, when he was in his 30s, according to a breaking story from the Washington Post.

The special election in Alabama is next month, in early December. Moore is running against Democrat Doug Jones. You’ll recall that Moore is the guy who wants to recriminalize homosexuality.

The worst story of all — Moore allegedly picked up a 14 year old girl, when he was 32, took her back to his home in the woods, removed his clothes, removed her clothes, then touched her breasts, her crotch, and put her hand on his crotch. The girl told friends at the time that she was dating an older man, and even named Moore to one of the friends. If, as Moore now claims, these are political lies, why would a 14 y.o. girl make up these lies 40 years ago about the then- relatively unknown Roy Moore?

Doug Jones already had an interesting shot at winning this race, even before this past Tuesday’s election blowout, but now with Moore facing multiple accusations of sexual improprieties with teenage girls, in the of a nationwide scandal over sexual assault, Jones has a real chance of winning this. Donate to Jones’ campaign here.

George Papadopoulos has a story to tell -- my latest on the Manafort indictment and Trump-Russia. Snippet:

An even more nefarious possibility is that the Russians offered the Trump campaign the stolen emails, and the Trump campaign was interested. That perhaps this was the hot anti-Hillary information that the Russians dangled before Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort in their meeting with Putin’s agents at Trump Tower in June of 2016. And, it’s possible that Donald Trump Sr. knew that this was what the Russians were offering, when Trump wrote Don Jr’s statement lying about what transpired at the meeting. And it’s possible that these were the emails Trump Sr had on his mind when he publicly called on Russia to find and release Hillary’s emails. (Though, in fact, these were different emails, Trump Sr isn’t know for nuance — he could have easily confused the two.) If all of that is true, then the Trump Campaign was intimately involved in the hack against Democrats during the 2016 election, and that’s something worth hiding (if you’re a criminal).

Papadopoulos felt it necessary to lie to the FBI last January, and Trump felt it necessary to lie about Papadopoulos today. That’s more than enough to suggest that we have yet to hear the full truth.

wo members of the Trump campaign, Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, have been indicted by FBI special counsel Mueller; and a third member of the Trump campaign, George Papadopoulos, has reached a deal where he is cooperating with prosecutors.

And Papadopoulos, who many had never heard of, is the real bombshell here. Papadopoulos ties Team Trump to Russia and Hillary Clinton’s stolen emails. It’s a huge story, and Cliff Schecter and I break it down for you. I think this is our best, and most important, podcast yet. You can listen via the box below, just click the orange arrow.

In national security circles, a “useful idiot” is an American citizen who unwittingly works for a foreign intelligence agency, and is so dumb that he doesn’t even realize that he’s selling out his own country.

In Sean Hannity’s case, the term useful idiot might be too generous. Hannity, and Fox News overall, have found Julian-Assange-Jesus, and are doing all they can to get Assange a presidential pardon, and to exonerate Russia in the ongoing investigation of Putin’s interference in the 2018 election.

In our latest podcast, Cliff Schecter and I talking about Hannity insanity and much more.

It is too dangerous for Donald Trump to remain in office. The time has come to publicly call for his removal, be it via impeachment or the 25th Amendment.

“Ted Cruz & masturbation are not things you can take lightly”

Family-values conservative Ted Cruz is embroiled in a Twitter sex scandal, while the nation reels from the after-effects of the second major hurricane to hit the US in the past month.

In today’s podcast, Cliff Schecter and John Aravosis discuss the Cruz scandal (2:30), Seb Gorka’s oddly-timed visit to Israel (8:19), Breitbart’s fury over Trump refusing to say “radical Islamic terrorism” (12:00), Steve Bannon’s “60 Minutes” attack on Hillary Clinton (16:46), Ted Cruz’s “safe word” (23:04), the recent spate of Republican retirements and whether they’ll help Democrats take back the Congress in 2018 (23:32), and climate change’s role in Hurricanes Irma and Harvey (49:16).

Rush Limbaugh is a hurricane truther. He thinks all the hysteria over Hurricane Irma is a conspiracy cooked up by “Big Water” and, for lack of a better phrase, Big Climate.

Limbaugh spent most of today’s screed going after Big Climate. You see, according to Limbaugh, a lot of meteorologists believe in climate change, so they’re trying to create hurricane-panic to convince people that climate change is real.

Limbaugh says, of course, that the media is part of the conspiracy. They all went down to Texas with the intent of making you think Hurricane Harvey was worse than it really was.

Absolutism on the left is no path to victory.

In our latest podcast, Cliff Schecter and I talk about the importance of holding Democrats accountable while still understanding that our greater fight is with Donald Trump.

We also discuss the latest on Trump-Russia and how the Mueller investigation, with the help of the IRS and NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, is closing in on Trump and his henchmen, including former campaign chair Paul Manafort.

Trump, who just last week embraced actual Nazis, used his first presidential pardon moments ago on Sherrif Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of refusing to comply with a court order to stop violating the Civil Rights Act by racially profiling Latinos.
