It has been a great ride with President Donald Trump for the first six months of his presidency, as he accomplishes more good than Obama did in eight years. But there is unfinished business and the U.S. Senate is standing in the way.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has received every special favor from President Trump imaginable. Trump appointed McConnell’s wife to the Cabinet, and placed McConnell’s buddy Amul Thapar on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
But McConnell remains more interested in preserving his own power than in making America great again, and still wants business-as-usual in the U.S. Senate. Recently McConnell even mocked Trump’s slogan that he rode into the White House.
We need a senator who will drain the swamp of the U.S. Senate, a Trump-like figure who will lead an ouster of McConnell as conservatives did on the House side to Speaker John Boehner.
Judge Roy Moore is that man, and he is up to the task. He is best known for courageously standing up against federal judicial supremacy, and he paid the heavy price of having his elected position wrongly taken away from him twice.
Roy Moore is running well in the polls for the upcoming August 15th primary in Alabama to nominate the Republican candidate to fill the seat previously held by now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Whoever wins the Republican primary, after a runoff if necessary, will win the general election because Alabama is so reliably Republican.
Donald Trump himself won Alabama by nearly 30 points last November, proving that Alabama voters want real conservative change in D.C. But no conservative legislation has yet passed in Congress, not even a repeal of Obamacare.
A few days ago Senate Majority Leader McConnell announced that he wants to work with Democrats to salvage parts of Obamacare that are collapsing. McConnell seems more concerned about profits at the big health insurance companies, which made a mint off mandatory insurance under Obamacare, than about patients and the urgent need to restore free enterprise to health care.
McConnell has his puppet in the race, Luther Strange, and the mega-donors who keep McConnell in office are opening their checkbooks to try to elect Mr. Strange. He was appointed to his temporary role in the Senate seat by the disgraced Alabama governor, Robert Bentley, who has since resigned due to a sex scandal with aide.
Supporting Roy Moore means supporting an end to the business-as-usual climate of the Senate, and an end to the albatross of Obamacare. “I will oppose any bill that does not fully repeal Obamacare. We knew from day one that the concept of Obamacare was doomed to fail just as socialized medicine has failed in every country where it has been implemented,” Moore has pledged.
Judge Moore predicted last month that “Majority Leader McConnell and the Senate Republicans [will] hoodwink the American people into thinking that Obamacare has been repealed by doing it in name only.” That is precisely what McConnell is attempting to do now, while Trump and the White House are dismayed by McConnell’s recent statements.
Judge Moore has observed that God put Trump in the White House, and Trump needs a man of integrity and courage like Roy Moore to be in the U.S. Senate for him and for us. Phyllis Schlafly was an enormous supporter of Roy Moore and twice had him deliver keynote speeches at her annual national conferences. In early 2015 Phyllis Schlafly also arranged to file a “friend of the court” amicus brief in support of the valiant position of Judge Moore against federal judicial supremacy. I have also personally met with and endorsed Judge Moore.
It would be a godsend to have Judge Moore in the U.S. Senate to put pressure on McConnell to repeal Obamacare as the American people expect. “Private sector competition improves consumer choice, quality of service, and innovation in every part of our economy,” Moore observed. “There is never a time to reject the time-tested power of freedom to improve life for everyone,” and now is time to support a candidate with the mettle to stand for this: Roy Moore.
