In Alabama, we don't take kindly to outsiders trying to interfere in our politics. Yes we overwhelmingly supported President Trump during the election and most of us still do.

This is one of those times the President of the United States of America Donald J. Trump is very wrong though. You will all see Tuesday just how wrong he is on this. Maybe it will be a wakeup call to him to stop listening to McConnell.

However when it comes to the Special Election and his endorsement of Luther Strange, he's way off base.

Luther Strange is the swamp, you know, that thing President Trump said he wanted to drain? Well we're going to do him a favor and drain it for him. Luther Strange is a Mitch McConnell puppet.

He's not a winner, he has no sense of dignity, and the people of Alabama, we don't like him. Roy Moore or Mo Brooks will win this Special Election to replace now Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Let's talk about that for a second too, Jeff Sessions did nothing wrong. He's an honorable Christian who is doing is job and he is following the law and upholding it.

He had no choice but to recuse himself. Period. If you disagree with this you don't understand the law. He had met with Russian Officials (legally) during the campaign and the entire Justice Department would have been a mockery if he didn't.

It's not his fault President Trump is being smeared and attacked. Don't blame Sessions.

The only other argument anyone has against Jeff Sessions is his stance on Marijuana. Do I think Marijuana is a problem? No, most people do not. Is it degenerate? Yes. Do I use it? No. Do I care if you do? Nope.

However it's ILLEGAL. Do people not understand this? The President of the United States of America Donald J. Trump ran on being the “Law and Order” candidate. Jeff Sessions as Attorney General is going to uphold the law.

Leave him alone yankees, I'm warning you once, you're assaulting our guy. We love Jeff Sessions.

Now that we have that cleared up, we also love President Trump. In fact around two thirds of Alabama voters decided on Donald Trump.

However lately, President Trump clearly has the wrong men in his ear. He endorsed Luther Strange to replace Jeff Sessions.

<a href="http://www.thegoldwater.com/news/6206-GOP-Establishment-Pushes-Strange-in-Heated-Alabama-Senate-Race">What I wrote about Luther Strange just last week</a> though, is that he defines the swamp monsters that are plaguing this Administration.

<i>”The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s own PAC are both spending millions of dollars to make sure that their guy Luther Strange wins the primary battle, even though the people of Alabama overwhelmingly prefer one of the two other conservative candidates who will represent them with real change.”</i>

<i>”McConnell has been under major controversies himself as of late with many in the GOP and Trump supporters alike calling on him to resign from his Majority Leader position after multiple failures.”</i>

<i>”The super PAC which is controlled by McConnell is set to spend an estimated $8 million to help boost his favored candidate, the recently appointed Republican Sen. Luther Strange.”</i>

<i>”Mitch McConnell is using his DC swamp lobbyist donor network to finance this insurgency, and he's also attempted to sway White House for more resources.”</i>

<i>”Both the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the Senate GOP campaign arm McConnell controls, have warned their consultants they’ll be cut off from future work if they assist Strange’s opponents, which is a heavy handed threat to attempt to manipulate the Alabama results in favor of an establishment puppet.”</i>

<i>”Even one of McConnell’s top political lieutenants has infiltrated on behalf of establishment by quietly advising the upstart and enthusiastic Republican Primary Candidate Mo Brooks that the Swamp will finance opposition for his House seat if he tries to take AG Sessions former Senate role.”</i>

<i>”The move is intentionally designed to get inside of the Congressman’s head and persuade him from emptying his campaign war chest in the race for Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ old Senate seat, but Mo Brooks seems to be fighting back unafraid.”</i>

<i>”Earlier this week both Rep. Brooks and Judge Moore could be heard loud and clear attacking the establishment puppetmasters of the GOP for their joint efforts to smear them individually calling it an atrocity that the GOP is trying to meddle in Alabama politics.”</i>

<i>”During a public forum held by the Shelby County Republican Party, former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore and Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks both called out the outsider ads pouring into the race from the Senate Leadership Fund super PAC.”</i>

<i>”The Senate Leadership Fund, founded by infamous GOP operative Karl Rove and aligned with McConnell, has spent millions on ads supporting Sen. Luther Strange and opposing Brooks. The group released its first ad targeting Moore yesterday.”</i>

<i>”The GOP establishment seems prepared to put up more of a fight to stop conservatives than they are to stop Obamacare or the Democrat Party.”</i>

There are two brilliant candidates that will win here, and neither one will be Luther Strange. Mark my words.

In fact he doesn't even stand a chance here. This isn't nationwide politics and polls. I live here. I hear from people every day, “I'd rather drive my car into the bay than vote for Strange.”

Clearly Mitch McConnell, has has financed millions of dollars into Strange, essentially making Strange a puppet, is whispering in the President’s ear. Like always though, Mitch will fail as he does in everything.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">.<a href="https://twitter.com/RepMoBrooks">@RepMoBrooks</a>: &quot;If I were Mitch McConnell, I would resign and let somebody else see if they can provide the kind of leadership necessary.&quot; <a href="https://t.co/c0l9o2VpLm">pic.twitter.com/c0l9o2VpLm</a></p>&mdash; FOX Business (@FoxBusiness) <a href="https://twitter.com/FoxBusiness/status/891267085585719297">July 29, 2017</a></blockquote>

To be truthful <a href="http://www.thegoldwater.com/news/5827-GOP-Calls-On-Mitch-McConnell-To-Resign-To-DrainTheSwamp">Mitch McConnell needs to resign</a>, he's an absolute failure and a travesty to the GOP and the President’s agenda.

While we're at it, let's get rid of Paul Ryan too,and John McCain, oh and Lindsey Graham. If that happened we'd be as close to perfection as it gets. Drain the damn swamp.

Back in Alabama though, contrary to McConnell’s millions of establishment dollars flowing into the state to back Strange, he's getting his butt kicked in the polls.

The former Chief Justice of Alabama’s Supreme Court is in the lead ahead of Tuesday’s Republican primary election, a move toward filling Attorney General Jeff Sessions former seat in the Senate.

The poll showed Moore leading the field, with 35 percent support. That’s more than 10 percentage points ahead of Luther Strange, who garnered 23 percent in the poll.

Moore, is a bit controversial. I get that. It doesn't matter to us in the South though. We don't really care about your feelings. We are traditional and proud.

Moore was removed from the state Supreme Court twice for refusing to take down a 10 Commandments monument and ordering other judges to not issue same-sex marriage licenses in 2016. Yeah some of you up North might dislike this, but we praise it.

Contrary to the President’s endorsement, sitting only 3 points behind Strange is popular Representative Mo Brooks.

Brooks has garnered around 20 percent in the poll. Brooks launched his campaign in May, but announced last month he would withdraw from the race if Trump were to fire Sessions as Attorney General to make room for Sessions to run for his seat.

Something that didn't happen. However the President spent at least two weeks publicly attacking Sessions on Twitter and expressing frustration over the Attorney General's decision to recuse himself from the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Most of us down here in the South, yeah we really didn't like that. Anyone who knows Sessions doesn't appreciate that. I've went to a dozen Trump rallies myself, many of which Jeff Sessions was in attendance.

“Brooks had momentum and we believe short of Trump’s endorsement tweet, Brooks would have overtaken Strange for second place,” Trafalgar senior strategist Robert Cahaly said in a statement. “Of course last minute campaign activity and Presidential tweets could change this thing again.”

Some say President Trump only hurt Mo Brooks. Which is a shame if true, but everywhere I drive through the state all I see are Brooks and Moore signs. I don't think I've seen a single sign for Strange. Not even one.

Just over 8 percent of voters are undecided, according to the poll, and just over 6 percent are supporting state Senator Trip Pittman, who's basically a waste of space this go around.

The poll surveyed a total of 1,439 likely primary voters from August 8th to August 10th, but a I've talked to around 25 people today asking if they'd been polled, and all said no. It was a toss up between Brooks and Moore in their eyes.

The Republican Nominee will face one of the eight Democratic candidates vying for a Primary win: Michael Hansen, Doug Jones, Robert Kennedy Jr., Jason Fisher, Will Boyd, Vann Caldwell, Brian McGee or Nana Tchienkou.

Democrats really don't stand much of a chance here, unless we're really angry with the establishment, and the GOP is failing us all right now. That being said we have these two great men on the ticket in the GOP Special Election

Strange was appointed to fill the seat by former Gov. Robert Bentley, who resigned amid allegations of his use of state resources to hide an affair with a top aide. Lt. Gov. Kay Ivey took over, calling for a special election back in April.

So yes, there's been some controversy here, but Strange is an appointment, the swamp, he's not our guy. Period.

Ooooookay, so long as they help lower taxes on the working class im ok with your guy.

6521, no matter how many times they run the figures, the answer will remain the same. Giving tax cuts, etc to the wealthy and the big companies, ALWAYS results in increased taxs, etc to mid-wealth and the poor, as well as bigger taxes on small and midlevel business, it will also increase VAT, etc. It's not something that magically goes away, it has to come from somewhere otherwise the whole infrastructure collapses. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a liar. A simple way for you to look at it is this, whatever your wage is, unless you get a raise(that wil be taxed), your household bills have to be paid, how you allocate your cash is up to you, but you have to make it balance. In this case you have a relative(relative = wealthy tax break) who is staying with you and Trump's just walked in, grabbed a hunk of your cash, given it to that relative and told you to pay your bills with whatevers left, I'd make it clearer but I'm tired and heading off for some shuteye.
