The Trump Administration Bans The CDC from Using 7 Specific Words, Including "Transgender", "Diversity" And “Science-Based”

The Trump administration has, in what can only be described as an Orwellian nightmare, banned the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from using seven specific words.

The seven taboo terms now banned from use in official documents from the institute, which issues reports on health promotion and disease prevention in the United States, in no particular order are...

Fetus,” “Transgender,” “Diversity”, “Science-Based” “Evidence-Based,” “Entitlement,” and “Vulnerable"

Reportedly CDC policy analysts were informed of the forbidden words in a 90-minute meeting in Atlanta on Thursday with senior CDC officials.

The meeting was led by a senior member of the CDC’s Office of Financial Services who according to sources didn’t know why the words were forbidden and said she was merely relaying information.

A source inside the meeting said they were suggested words and phrases to use in place of  “science-based” or “evidence-based,” such as...

CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” 

This left many worried that those as the CDC working on the Zika virus's effect on developing fetuses may be at a loss for appropriate/acceptable words.

Those at the CDC were reportedly shocked and concerned by the edict and were unsure what the rationale was aside from trying to erase certain types of people from their reports.

The now-taboo terms will not be used in official documents from the Atlanta institute, which issues reports on health promotion and disease prevention in the United States.

This new rule will undoubtably make the work of several CDC departments more difficult based on the populations they serve such as The National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention and researching the Zika virus.

Sources also believe that other employees of the Health and Human Services department are likely subjected to the same rule.

Donald Trump’s Support Among The Fox News Faithful Plunges 32 Points!

According to a new poll Donald Trump’s support among Fox News viewers plunges 32 points in stunning new poll.

The poll from Suffolk University shows that, since beginning his term, Trump’s numbers have plummeted among loyal Fox viewers.

In January, people who rated Fox as their most trusted network held a 90 percent favorable view of Trump.

That figure now stands at 58 percent revealing a staggering 32-point drop.

The drop is not due to a lack of effort from the network to shield Trump from any and all allegations of incompetency or wrongdoing.

In addition to covering for Trump at all turns Fox has also viciously attacked all those that speak out against the dear leader even going as far as to impugn the motives and impartiality of the FBI and the special counsel that is looking into Trump-Russia wrongdoing.

At this point Trump only appears on the network and when he does he is greeted with softball interview questions and sycophant-like praise.

But despite their best efforts Trump has is being dragged down by the indictments and guilty pleas of former campaign and administration officials and a laundry list of unkept legislative promises.

This combined with the #MeToo movement's continuing exposing of sexual predation by prominent men in entertainment, business, media, and politics, which has brought the seventeen plus women who have accused Trump of harrassment or sexual assault back into the national spotlight.

Add lest we forget Trump's appalling endorsement of an accused serial child molester in Roy Moore and you have a situation not even the equivalent of state run television can help you with!

Suffolk’s findings match with other recent polls showing Trump, and the entire GOP, are becoming completely radioactive with voters.

Under Trump The Number Of Homeless Veterans Rises For The First Time In Seven Years

For the first time in seven years the number of homeless veterans is up.

From January 2016 to January 2017, the number of homeless vets increased 1.5 percent, according to a new report from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

On the night of a homeless census in January 2017, 40,056 veterans were unsheltered.

This horrific news is was met by the Trump administration's announcement that later in the year they will be seeking to cut funding to a program designed to aid homeless vets.

On December 1st, Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin released a statement that he was gutting a $460-million program dedicated to veteran homelessness. The move came after Shulkin had told Military Times that he didn't believe it was practical to aim for zero veteran homelessness.

"There is going to be a functional zero, essentially somewhere around 12,000 to 15,000 that despite being offered options for housing and getting them off the street, there are a number of reasons why people may not choose to do that,"

In light of the homeless spike the news of the cut was met a vicious backlash from veteran advocates and members of Congress so intense that Shulkin reversed course late Wednesday promising in a news release...

"absolutely no change in the funding to support our homeless programs,"

In a statement released Thursday, the the National Coalition of Homeless Veterans told Shulkin that  the VA needed to "clarify," his pledge to dedicate time on "how best to target our funding to the geographical areas that need it most,".

After President Barack Obama pledged to "end veterans’ homelessness," in 2010 the number of homeless veterans in the U.S. has, until now, declined by 46 percent.

But the increase in veteran homeless since Trump took office has matched the rise in the overall homeless population which is up .7 percent overall from 2016.

The 40,056 veterans account for roughly nine percent of all homeless people.

Trump Hosts NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre At The White House On The Anniversary Of The Sandy Hook Shooting

Thursday marked the 5 year anniversary of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut that claimed the lives of 26, 20 of whom were small children.

On the somber date Donald Trump failed to mention let alone release any statement or messages of condolences for the families who lost loved ones on that horrific day.

Most repugnant of Trump's actions on that day was the fact that he hosted NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre at a White House Christmas party as families and friends of the elementary school gun massacre were remembering the victims of the horrific shooting spree.

This after LaPierre and the NRA spread lies about the emergency response to the attack, lashed out at critics, urged that every school in America have armed guards and fought to obstruct President Barack Obama’s bipartisan effort to pass a background check bill in the wake of the attack.

Here is a picture of LaPierre at the event via Shannon Watts of "Mom's Demand Action"...

Watts pointed out that over the last 4 years since the tragedy President Obama had invited only gun violence prevention activists, gun violence survivors, Sandy Hook families and supportive lawmakers to the White House's Christmas party out of respect to those who lost their lives on that day.

FCC YOU! Trump Administration Repeals Net Neutrality

The Trump Administration gave a huge gift to internet service providers like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon and a big screw you to all of us when the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted on Thursday to repeal net neutrality rules.

FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai, who was appointed by Donald Trump, repealed the protective measure despite public outcry as well as a request from 18 state attorneys general to delay the vote over concerns that the public comment process had been corrupted by fraudulent messages.

The repeal, ironically named the "FCC Acts To Restore Internet Freedom", passed 3-2 on party lines with all three Republicans voting in favor.

The repeal scraps a 2015 Obama-era regulation that classified the internet as a public utility which among other things required internet service providers (ISPs) to treat all of the data traveling on their networks equally.

Without these protections those ISPs can now legally begin treating data from some websites differently than others.

Freed from the regulation provider's of internet content could charge customers for certain services while blocking access to other websites entirely. Some companies could decide customers won’t be charged when they view data they own the rights to but would be charged for rival companies data thus driving viewers to their site.

Also it is now legal for ISPs to discriminate against internet traffic and create fast lanes and slow lanes for content.

This is just one more instance that the Trump administration is more interested in doing what big companies want them to do as opposed to everyday Americans.

The Internet's content is all fair game now and so are you thanks to Trump's hard on for repealing anything President Obama put in place.

The fight for Internet equality is not dead yet as not only has New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman pledged to sue to halt the FCC’s actions but in addition Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) joined with 15 other senators to contest the FCC decision via a Congressional Review Act resolution.

On a side note, if you thought this move wasn't hugely unpopular, the hearing was temporarily delayed by a bomb threat before the final vote was taken. Only after police and dogs searched the cleared out chamber did the committee proceed with their vote to repeal the regulations.

YOU'RE FIRED! Omarosa Fired, Gets Dragged Kicking And Screaming From The White House Christmas Party!

You're fired... Again.

Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former “Apprentice” contestant who works as "an adviser" for Donald Trump, has reportedly been unceremoniously removed from her position... Whatever that was.

Newman, who prefers to go by Omarosa only, was fired or resigned on Tuesday night.

Just about everyone, including those in the administration, have no idea what Newman did in her $180,000 a year position but the title she amassed for it was...

"Director Of Communications For The White House Office of Public Liaison.

It appears that the trouble with Newman began at a White House Christmas party when she threw a tantrum and demanded she be allowed to speak with Donald Trump.

According to those in attendance General Kelly would not allow her to speak to him whereupon she began to curse and threaten him.

A source with knowledge of the Tuesday night to-do said Newman...

acted very vulgar and cursed a lot and said she helped elect President Trump" and then said, "I brought the black vote" to which General Kelly said, "no, you did not. It's not there,"

After the dustup with Kelly Newman then apparently tried to run into Trump's private residence within the White House setting alarms that triggered the Secret Service into action!


After the resignation/firing the White House released a statement to the press saying that Newman had...

resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities,

After that Trump took to Twitter to wish her well/twist the knife...

But it didn't end there as more news of the drama leaked out.

Urban Radio Networks Washington bureau chief April Ryan claimed she had inside information that Omarosa got into some kind of a scuffle with White House officials and had to be physically escorted from the building....

Ryan went on to report that her sources within the White House texted her after Newman's removal saying “Mission accomplished!” as she was deeply... DEEPLY!... unpopular among her colleagues.

Newman first became associated with Donald Trump when she was a contestant on his reality TV series “The Apprentice” in 2004 and then again on “Celebrity Apprentice” and “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice”.

She lost all three times.

That makes this the FOURTH time Newman has been fired by Donald Trump.

Buh bye!

...AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON! New York Newspapers Nail Roy Moore... And His Horse!

At 11:30 am today Republican candidate Roy Moore arrived at his polling place in Gallant, Alabama on a horse named "Sassy".

Moore said he specifically rides "Sassy" (No, not kidding!) to the polls in every election to “have good favor,”.

It did not work this time around and the newspapers of New York let him know about it.

The Daily News went with this version with the expletive front and center...

The New York Post went with the PG 13 version...

NO MOORE! Democrat Doug Jones Wins Alabama Senate Seat In Stunning Rebuke To Trump

Tonight voters in Alabama elected Doug Jones over Republican Roy Moore, making him the first Democrat to win a U.S. Senate seat in the state in 25 years in that state.

Jones' win, albeit by only 2 percent, is a shocking upset in Alabama given that it is one of the reddest states in the nation.

To give you an idea of what a turnaround this Democratic victory is the last time this seat was in play the Dems didn't even field a candidate when then-Sen. Jeff Sessions ran for re-election just three years ago.

In his victory speech tonight Jones said...

We have shown the country the way that we can be unified,

For his part Roy Moore refused to concede telling supporters he would...

"wait on God and let this process play out,"

This was a brutal defeat not only for Roy Moore but for Steve Bannon and Donald Trump who threw all their political weight behind Roy Moore.

Remember Donald Trump, who backed Luther Strange in the primary, backed not one but two losing candidates in Alabama in this senate race.

Republicans now hold a razor thin 51-49 majority in the Senate after this Democratic win.

54 Democratic Congresswomen Demand Probe Into Allegations Of Sexual Misconduct Against Donald Trump

A group of Democratic congresswomen have called on the House Oversight Committee to investigate allegations of sexual misconduct against Donald Trump.

The letter, spearheaded by the head of the Democratic Women's Working Group, Rep. Lois Frankel of Florida, adds to a growing number of voices drawing renewed attention to the accusations leveled against Trump by at least 17 women during his 2016 campaign.

The 17 women have come forward with a wide range of accusations against Donald Trump, ranging from lewd behavior to sexual harassment and sexual assault.

In the letter to the panel's chairman, GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy, and the committee's top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings and the 54 female House lawmakers write that...

"The American people deserve a full inquiry in to the truth of these allegations. In the time of 'Me Too,' women across the country are coming forward with their own harrowing stories of sexual harassment and assault. Members of Congress have also come under scrutiny and investigation, with some resigning, for improper sexual conduct. We cannot ignore the multitude of women who have come forward with accusations against Mr. Trump."

When asked on Monday about the letter White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders repeated to reporters on Monday that Trump denies all allegations of misconduct...

"The President has denied any of these allegations," Sanders said. "The American people knew this and voted for the President and we feel like we're ready to move forward in this process.

Trump responded to the call for an investigation Tuesday morning, calling it "fake news".

This demand comes on the same day four of Donald Trump's accusers demanded that Congress investigate their claims of sexual misconduct against Trump at a news conference in New York City.

4 Women Who Have Accused Donald Trump Of Sexual Misconduct Demand Congress Open An Investigation

Four women who have accused Donald Trump of sexual harassment and assault are demanding that Congress investigate their claims.

Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey, Rachel Crooks and Lisa Boyne, who joined by phone, held news conference during which they urged Congress to open an investigation into the sexual harassment and assault allegations against the Trump.

Sixteen women have accused Donald Trump of sexual misconduct ranging from unwanted sexual advances, to groping, to full blown sexual assault.

The four women's demand were delivered as the accusations about Trump have come under increased scrutiny over the past few months as several prominent politicians and members of the media have been brought down after their sexual misconduct had been brought to light. Not helping is the fact that Trump has thrown his support behind Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who faces allegations of sexual misconduct and child molestation.

A White House spokesperson responded to the women’s accusations in a statement...

These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts, were addressed at length during last year’s campaign, and the American people voiced their judgement by delivering a decisive victory. The timing and absurdity of these false claims speaks volumes and the publicity tour that has begun only further confirms the political motives behind them.” 

The group of accusers call the statement "laughable".

The Monday news conference was hosted by Brave New Films, a documentary production company that in November released a three-minute video called “16 Women and Donald Trump”.

The video, which the four women appear in, shares the stories of the women who have come forward with their experiences of Trump allegedly assaulting or harassing them can be seen here...

Roy Moore's Wife Deflects Accusations Of His Anti-Semiteism By Claiming "One Of Our Attorneys Is A Jew" (VIDEO)

Kayla Moore, wife of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, introducing him at Monday's rally 

At a campaign rally on Monday, one night before the Alabama special election, Roy Moore's wife attempted to refute allegations that her hubby harbored anti-Semitic beliefs.

It happened when Kayla Moore was introducing her husband in Midland City, Alabama, and decided to address last week's criticism of Roy Moore after he excoriated the Jewish Hungarian-born billionaire and philanthropist George Soros for his Jewish faith... Twice.

The incident happened on conservative Christian radio host Bryan Fischer’s show when Moore said of Soros...

"His agenda is sexual in nature, his agenda is liberal, and not what Americans need. It’s not our American culture. Soros comes from another world that I don’t identify with. I wish I could face him directly, and I’d tell him the same thing.
No matter how much money he’s got, he’s still going to the same place that people who don’t recognize God and morality and accept His salvation are going. And that’s not a good place,

Attempting to curtail the backlash Kayla Moore those in attendance at the rally that both she and her elderly husband couldn't possibly be bigoted towards those of the Jewish faith because...

Fake news would tell you that we don’t care for Jews. I tell you all this because I’ve seen it also; I just want to set the record straight while they’re here. One of our attorneys is a Jew."

There are no words.

Watch it here...

Just to check all "I'm not a racist" boxes Kayla Moore also argued that reports suggesting her husband “doesn’t support the black community” were “fake news” as well citing that they also have...

many friends that are black,

Roy Moore has been accused of molesting two women when they were minors and he was an attorney in his 30s, as well as pursuing and dating other minors including a 14 year old.

BREAKING NEWS: Bomber Detonates Explosive In Failed Terrorist Attack In New York's Port Authority

At approximately 7:15 am a man detonated an "IED" inside New York's Port Authority in what police are calling a “terror-related incident”.

The device, strapped to the bomber’s chest, apparently exploded prematurely, hurting a total of four people including the bomber, in the transit system near Times Square during Monday’s morning rush hour.

Reports say the explosive, described as a “low-tech device”, went off prematurely.

A photo of bomber after his IED prematurely detonated

The bomber, who suffered severe injuries after the failed attack, has been identified as 27 year old Akayed Ullah.

Ullah was taken into custody and rushed to Bellevue Hospital with burns and other injuries.

It was reported at a press conference that Ullah entered the U.S. in 2011 from Bangladesh and is a lawful permanent resident.

The Fire Department said a total of three people were being treated for “non-life-threatening” injuries.

The Port Authority bus terminal was evacuated and has been temporarily shut down.

The area where the explosion occurred is one of New York City’s busiest tourist and commuter zones.

This is the third terrorist attack on New York in the last 15 months.

It Turns Out That Trump Did Not Invite Any Democrats To His White House Hanukkah Party

The divider-in-chief stayed true to his moniker as it has been reported that Trump did not invite any Democrats from Congress to the White House Hanukkah party on Thursday evening.

This of course means that the overwhelming majority of Jewish lawmakers were not present.

Rep. Nita M. Lowey, D-New York, said in a statement...

"It's deeply unfortunate that the White House Hanukkah Party — a bipartisan event bringing together Jewish and non-Jewish leaders alike to celebrate the Festival of Lights since 2001 — has turned into a partisan affair under this administration,"

While the only two Jewish Republicans in Congress, Reps. David Kustoff, R-Tennessee, and Lee Zeldin, R-New York attended the party as the 20 Jewish Democrats in Congress were persona non grata.

Just in case Trump hadn't made his point clearly enough he also didn't invite leaders of the Reform Jewish movement or officials from J Street, the pro-Israel lobbying group that supports a two-state solution.

This all comes just days after Trump's disastrous decision to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital setting off condemnation from multiple world leaders and widespread violent anti-US protests that rage as you are reading this post.

In all fairness Trump said he'd bring back Christmas but he never said anything about Hanukkah.

Trump Disinvited From Mississippi’s Civil Rights Museum Opening After Honorees Announce Boycott

The new Civil Rights Museum in Jackson, Mississippi will be celebrating it opening day this Saturday.

Donald Trump was scheduled to appear at the event... Until he wasn't.

It has been announced that Trump will now instead participate in a separate private event at the Museum on Saturday morning rather than the public ceremony later in the day.

The decision came after word of Trump's plan to attend the opening erupted into controversy when a series of noteworthy civil rights leaders and speakers decided to boycott the event and local groups planned to protest.

Fearing the ensuing pandemonium the Mississippi Department of Archives and History and the White House agreed to have a separate event when Trump will be able to tour the museum and speak at a private program in the morning.

Multiple people close to the situation have said staff at the museum scrambled to address the problem after speakers dropped out of the event.

The problem was that no one at the museum knew that Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, an avowed Trump supporter, had extended an invite to Trump.

It was after Trump announce his plans to attend the opening that a number of speakers, noteworthy Mississippians and civil rights heroes who were to be honored decided to boycott the event citing Trump's racially divisive behavior that stands in direct opposition to the symbolism of the event.

Noted Civil rights leaders who have announced that they will be boycotting Trump's unwanted presence at the ceremony are congressmen John Lewis, D-Ga., and Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., former Secretary of the Navy and Mississippi Gov. Ray Maybus, Jackson Miss, Mayor Chokwe Lumumba and Charles McLaurin, a ledgendary leader in the civil rights movement.

The NAACP also called on Trump not to attend and said his presence would be an “affront” to civil rights heroes.

Trump is of course famous for his racist proclivities which include attacking the first black president of United States with birtherism conspiracies, his various disparaging remarks about Mexicans, his attempt to implement a Muslim ban and vilifying the group “Black Lives Matter”... just for starters.

WATCH: Accused Sexual Assaulter Donald Trump Stumps For Accused Child Molester Roy Moore (VIDEO)

On Friday night Donald Trump campaigned for Roy Moore at a rally in Pensacola, Florida, just days ahead of the Alabama special election to fill the state’s open Senate seat.

The whole gang even managed to work up a "Lock Her Up!" chant going!


The a campaign-style rally was held about 20 miles from the Florida-Alabama border. This way Trump retains plausible deniability when says he never held a campaign rally for Moore... in case he loses.

Accused Child Molester And Senate Candidate Roy Moore Says The Last Time America Was "Great" Was During Slavery

It seems that a months old quote from Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has come back to haunt him.

It was some of that home spun gold we've all come to expect from child molesting, racist, dominionist, Senate candidates that never fails to impress.

Apparently waaaaaay back in September good ol' Roy stunned some attendees at his rally in Florence, Alabama when he opined that America had been “great” during the era of slavery.

Moore broke off that bit o' wisdom when one of the few African-Americans in the crowd asked the him when he thought was the “last time” America was great.

Moore answered the man thusly...

I think it was great at the time when families were united. Even though we had slavery, they cared for one another. ... Our families were strong, our country had a direction,

Unfortunately for Moore his Moore’s comments resurfaced Thursday in a tweet by Eric Columbus, who served in the departments of Justice and Homeland Security during the Obama administration. Columbus linked to the LA Times story...

Unsurprisingly it was at the same rally where Moore also referred to Native Americans and Asians as “reds and yellows,”.

At this point one could only hypothesize that this unabashed racism heaped on top of the allegations of pedophillia would only boost Moore's poll numbers in his Alabama Senate race.

Once again... Just as a helpful reminder... Donald Trump has thrown his full support behind Roy Moore.

#DentureDonald! A Slurring Mush-Mouthed Donald Trump Causes Concerns And Speculation (UPDATED)

Those who watched Donald Trump's speech recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and plans to move the U.S. Embassy located there noticed that he began slurring his words during the address, particularly at the very end.

If you have a minute thirty and a strong stomach you can watch it here...

Trump's slurring and general difficulty speaking throughout the speech caused health concerns with speculations ranging from drug intoxication all the way to mini-stroke.

Trump's reported steady intake of MacDonalds and KFC compounded with his stated aversion to exercise it is understandable why some might worry about the 71 year old's health.

The final conclusion was that Trump’s dentures were slipping out of his mouth thus causing the change in speech pattern.

Many amateur dentists around the interwebs hypothesized that slippage appeared to indicate a sliding lower plate, which led many to wonder why he chose to wear dentures instead of opting for more permanent and convenient dental implants.

Some speculated that Trump had lost his teeth due to his repeated replacement of his dental veneers with he reportedly did every few month which will destroy your natural teeth over a short period of time.

The matter went mostly unnoticed until Trevor Noah, of "The Daily Show", chided Trump over his denture mishap during the Jerusalem address...

Think about it; fake teeth, fake hair, fake tan, like there’s no part of his body that’s real!

Noah then implored his audience not to start tweeting "#DentureDonald” saying...

Don’t do it, guys. He’s very shenshitive.

#DentureDonald of course trended on Twitter later that night.

The day after the incident Press secretary Sarah Sanders addressed the matter at the end of her daily briefing following a host of stories about Trump’s garbled pronunciations on Wednesday as he read a statement off a teleprompter...

Pretty ridiculous questions. The president’s throat was dry, nothing more than that.

Ridiculous or not the White House announced on Thursday Donald Trump will get a physical exam at Walter Reed Army Hospital.

The karma is especially strong here as Trump regularly ridiculed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over health concerns during the 2016 campaign, repeatedly questioning her stamina and strength... But never her teeth.

Trump's Recognition Of Jerusalem As Israeli Capital Provokes Worldwide Condemnation And Massive Protests

On Wednesday Donald Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and directed the State Department to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel there from Tel Aviv despite the longstanding U.S. policy that Israelis and Palestinians should negotiate the city’s status among themselves.

The decision marked a controversial shift in U.S. policy that threatens to further inflame Israeli-Palestinian tensions as both Israelis and Palestinians claim rightful ownership of Jerusalem, despite the fact that Israel has controlled the city since 1967.

In his address Trump criticized former U.S. presidents for declining to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital all the while failing to recognize that the status of Jerusalem has long been a key issue in the peace process which he now has put in jepardy.

Though Palestinian officials warned that any change to the city’s status would be destructive Trump disregarded the dangers and claimed that the move is meant to signal...

the beginning of a new approach to conflict between Israel and the Palestinians,

The reaction from world leaders was swift and wide reaching starting in Trump's own administration

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis cautioned that...

"the move could endanger American diplomats and troops stationed in the Middle East and Muslim nations."

Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian President, condemned the move and said that the United States is withdrawing from its role as mediator in the peace process...

The decision by President Trump will not change the reality of the city of Jerusalem and will not give any legitimacy to the Israelis on this issue,

Nabil Shaath, a senior Palestinian official, said...

So Mr. Trump came up with the slogan of the ‘deal of the century,’ or ‘the mother of all transactions’, as Saddam Hussein would say. But the mother of all the deals dies here on the rocks in Jerusalem if he says tomorrow that he recognizes a united Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. It removes any chance he will play a role in an agreement. There is no deal that begins with the destruction of the two-state solution.” 

Tayyip Erdogan, President of Turkey, said...

Mr. Trump, Jerusalem is the red line of Muslims,

Binali Yildirim, the Prime Minister of Turkey, said America had dropped a grenade in the Middle East...

"The United States has pulled the pin on a bomb ready to blow in the region,"

Saad Hariri, Lebanese Prime Minister, expressed his nation’s disappointment in a tweet...

Hanan Ashrawi, a Palestinian legislator and activist, said...

"This is one of the most reckless, irresponsible moves in recent history. While he's talking about peace, he is destroying the chances of peace,"

Jordan’s King Abdullah II warned the Trump administration that an embassy move could derail Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts...

"Taking that step now could prompt terrorists to whip up anger, frustration and desperation in order to spread their ideologies"

Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit to the Arab League also opposed the move saying it was a...

dangerous measure that would have repercussions.

Saudi Arabia, a regional powerhouse that could help the White House push through a Middle East settlement, has voiced strong opposition to Mr. Trump's move, saying it would...

"provoke sentiments of Muslims throughout the world."   

Pope Francis even spoke out against Trump's plans for Jerusalem’s status hoping needless conflict would be avoided...

I cannot remain silent about my deep concern for the situation that has developed in recent days. And at the same time, I wish to make a heartfelt appeal to ensure that everyone is committed to respecting the status quo of the city, in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the United Nations. Jerusalem is a unique city sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims, where the Holy Places for the respective religions are venerated, and it has a special vocation to peace.

And Eight countries, Bolivia, Egypt, France, Italy, Senegal, Sweden, United Kingdom and Uruguay, all opposed to Mr. Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital have asked for an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council this week.

In addition to the warnings and reprimands massive demonstrations and protests have broken out all across the middle east as a result of Trump's reckless move as Muslim leaders call for an "intifada," against the U.S....

• Palestinian political factions called for "Three Days Of Rage" including demonstrations against the move and urged widespread protests in city centers and at Israeli embassies as Palestinians took to the streets of Gaza City and Rafah, chanting “Death to America,” “Death to Israel” and “Down with Trump. 

• The Iraqi militia group Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba, said Trump’s “stupid decision” could become a "legitimate reason" to attack U.S. forces in Iraq. 

• Leaders of the Iran-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad group, Nafeth Azzam and Ahmed al-Batsh have called for an armed struggle demanding the Palestinian Authority to stop all security coordination with Israel, to withdraw its recognition of Israel and to declare an end to the Oslo agreements, which are the basis of peace negotiations. 

• The U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem tweeted on Tuesday that U.S. citizens should avoid areas where crowds have gathered to demonstrate. 

• In Gaza, hundreds of Palestinian protesters burned American and Israeli flags. They also waved Palestinian flags and banners proclaiming Jerusalem as their "
eternal capital," 

• In Beirut, a few hundred Palestinian refugees staged a protest in the narrow streets of the Bourj al-Barajneh camp, some of them chanting "
Trump, you are mad." 

• Hundreds of people in Turkey staged demonstrations near U.S. diplomatic missions in Ankara and Istanbul. 

• In the Baqaa refugee camp on Amman's outskirts, hundreds of Palestinians roamed the streets overnight, denouncing Trump and urging Jordan to scrap its 1994 peace treaty with Israel chanting "Down with America ... America is the mother of terror,"
American flags were burned at protests outside the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul and in Cairo and Gaza City

Meanwhile there is no immediate timeline for when the State Department plans to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

At this point one can only wonder if Trump's intentions were to outrage the worldwide Muslim community in hopes that they would act out with violence giving him some much needed cover from the scandals that presently engulf his administration at home.

House Republicans Pass Bill Loosening Gun Restrictions Across State Lines

On Wednesday House Republicans passed legislation that would force states to honor concealed carry permits that we're issued in other states regardless of that states gun laws.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act would allow anyone who is permitted to carry a hidden firearm in one state to legally carry the weapon across state lines. This would have a particularly dramatic impact in states that have tough concealed carry restrictions by making them honor the permits from other states with more lax gun laws.

The 231-198 vote, which was passed largely on party lines, is a GOP wet kiss to the National Rifle Association which has labeled the issue a high priority.

The vote illustrates congressional Republicans priorities as it comes one month after a shooter killed 26 people in a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas and roughly two months after 58 people were shot to death at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas.

Luckily the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is considered dead in the Senate as Republicans would need support from Democrats, who are less encumbered by gun lobby money and insane gun culture leanings, to overcome a filibuster there.

Pathetically, Wednesday's vote marked the first time since the Newtown Elementary School massacre, that took the lives of 20 children, that the House took up any significant gun legislation.

The House Of Representatives Voted On The Impeachment Of Donald Trump

Today fifty-eight House Democrats voted to advance the impeachment of Donald Trump.

The fifty-eight did this in direct defiance of the pleas of House Democratic leaders earlier in the day.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) issued a joint statement stating that...

Now is not the time,

The dissenting Democrats believed that the impeachment vote would be used by Republicans as a distraction from efforts to kill the wildly unpopular Republican tax bill, which is swiftly making its way through Congress.

Nevertheless the most progressive wing of the Democratic caucus, bolstered by a large number of Congressional Black Caucus members, including the No. 3 Democrat, Assistant Democratic Leader Jim Clyburn (S.C.), ignored Pelosi and Hoyer advice and voted for impeachment.

Eventually a vote to table the impeachment resolution was agreed to 368-58, with four Democrats voting just “present” and 126 other Democrats voting with Republicans to kill the resolution.

No Republican voted to advance impeachment.

The resolution to impeach Trump was introduced by CBC member Al Green (D-Texas) who said before the vote...

May everyone vote their conscience knowing that history will judge us all,

Green’s impeachment resolution does not mention the issue of Trump's alleged collusion with Russia but instead nails him for race-baiting, bigotry, anti-Semitism, and a number of racially incendiary comments rather than attacking Trump over issues like Russia stating...

In doing this, hatred disguised as acceptable political correctness has festered in our body politic and polluted our discourse to our detriment. It divides and damages the social fabric of our country in ways that obstruction of justice cannot. It causes unparalleled destruction to our society in the long- and short-term that will not easily heal,

Hear! Hear!

Special Counsel Mueller Issues Subpoena For Information On Trump Family Bank Accounts

On Tuesday it was revealed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had issued a subpoena to Deutsche Bank asking the financial institution to share data on accounts held by Donald Trump and his family.

Mueller issued the subpoena as part of his investigation into Russia’s alleged attempts to influence the 2016 election.

The bank, despite being repeatedly stiffed and sued by Donald Trump, has continued to loan the Trump Organization money to the tune of $340 million over the years. This makes it by far the biggest lender to the organization by a mile.

Germany’s largest bank reportedly received the subpoena from Mueller several weeks ago in an effort to ascertain information on certain monies and credit transactions according to a report by German daily newspaper Handelsblatt.

In July, when asked in a New York Times interview if Mueller's looking into his and his families finances unrelated to Russia would be a "red line" Trump implied that he would consider firing Mueller saying...

"I think that's a violation"

Trump has remained mum on whether he considers Mueller's latest move out of bounds.

Despite Trump's silence his personal attorney, Jay Sekulow, released an oddly worded statement addressing the reported Deutsche Bank subpoena which read...

We have confirmed that the news reports that the Special Counsel had subpoenaed financial records relating to the President are false. No subpoena has been issued or received. We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources.

I hope he got triple for that doublespeak.

Despite the denial all parties are sticking to their reporting that the special counsel had issued a subpoena to Deutsche Bank.

The company, for it's part, released a statement saying...

Deutsche Bank takes its legal obligations seriously and remains committed to cooperating with authorized investigations into this matter,

For the record, not only has Deutsche Bank financed Donald Trump but his wife Melania, daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner are all clients of Deutsche Bank’s wealth management arm.

The noose tightens.

The Trump-Russia Investigation Has Only Cost $3.2 Million So Far And Has Racked Up Two Indictments And Two Guilty Pleas!

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has released a statement of the costs of the investigating Trump-Russian investigation covering the period between May 17 until the end of September as part of a commitment to release cost analysis every six months.

The report found that the special counsel's office spent just $3,213,695.

Mueller’s special counsel spending totals include $1.7 million for salaries and benefits $500,696 for new hires $733,969 to acquire office equipment for the investigation, $223,643 for travel, almost entirely for staffers who have temporarily relocated to the investigation’s headquarters in Washington $157,339 in receipts for a variety of contractual services, including  information technology, transcription and building services.

The pro-trump media, however, have been throwing around a claim that the Justice Department spent $6.7 million on its probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election in the four-and-a-half months after special counsel Robert Mueller's appointment.

There's just one little problem with that assessment.

Of the total, only $3.2 million was spent directly by Mueller whereas the other $3.5 million that was spent on DOJ operations would have been spent on its own pre-existing Russia investigations if Mueller hadn't been tapped to take over in mid-May.

That's what we call "fake news".

For the cost incurred so far the special counsel's office has indicted Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, former national security adviser Michael Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump, George Papadopoulos, has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

Pretty good bang for the buck.

For comparison sake there were six separate investigations during the Clinton administration that ran up costs of more than $140 million and the Reagan administration faced eight different probes, including Iran-Contra, for a total of more than $84 million,

Mueller’s next public report will be released at some point after his receipts through March 31, 2018... If it lasts that long.

POLL: Less Than One-Third Of Americans (29%) Approve Of The Trump Tax Plan

According to a new Quinnipiac poll, conducted between Nov. 29th and Dec. 4th, less than one-third of Americans (29%) approve of the Trump-Republican tax plan the House and Senate are presently ramming though congress.

In the poll 64 percent of the people surveyed said the bill would benefit the wealthy while a mere 24 percent said they believe the middle class would benefit the most.

Additionally, 41% believed the plan would raise their taxes.

In a separate question 47 percent that the Democratic Party can do a superior job handling taxes while 39 percent believe the GOP would be better equipped.

Here are a few other choice tidbits gleaned from the poll that should prove troubling for Trump and his Republican party come the 2018 elections...

• Donald Trump's approval rating languishes at 35 percent.

• 56 percent believe that Trump is not fit to be president (tying his all-time low score).

• 59 percent think that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election.

• 50 percent that people polled said the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 presidential elections.

• 56 percent say that Democrats can do a better job "fighting for the working class" opposed to 34 percent for Republicans.

•  51 percent that Democrats can do a better job "representing your values" compared to 37 percent.

• 50 percent would like the Democrats to win control of the House of Representatives in the 2018 elections while only 36 percent would like the GOP to maintain control.

• 51 say that they would like Democrats to win control of the U.S. Senate in 2018 opposed to 37 percent who would like Republicans to remain in power.

These numbers are stunning considering the fact that the unemployment rate hovers around the 4 percent mark and the stock market is at an all time high at 24,180. Imagine if these positive numbers weren't a factor in the minds of the people Quinnipiac polled.

Supreme Court Allows Trump’s Latest Muslim Ban To Go Fully Into Effect As Legal Challenges Continue

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday allowed Donald Trump's Muslim ban, targeting people from six Muslim-majority countries, to go into full effect even as legal challenges continue in lower courts.

The court, in a 7-2 ruling, granted the administration’s request to lift two injunctions imposed by lower courts that had partially blocked what is Trump's third version of his highly contentious ban.

The court’s action means the ban will effect for people seeking to enter the United States from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Chad.

Lower courts had previously limited the scope of the ban to people without certain family or other connections to the United States.

But the Supreme Court said in two similar one-page orders that the lower court rulings that had partly blocked the latest ban should be put on hold while appeals courts in San Francisco and Richmond, Virginia weigh the cases.

Both courts are due to hear arguments in those cases this week.

Two of court’s liberal justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, were the lone dissenting voices.

Trump’s ban also covers people from North Korea and certain government officials from Venezuela, but lower courts had already allowed those provisions to go into effect.

Trump Guts Two Protected National Monuments In Give Away To Oil And Gas Companies

Trump signs proclamations shrinking Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments

In Salt Lake City, Utah, Donald Trump on Monday signed a pair of proclamations to dismantle the Bears Ears National Monument and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, two of the state’s national treasures.

Trump's actions reverse President Obama's orders to designate both Utah national monuments as protected lands.

Make no mistake about the move. It was made solely to open the door for oil, gas and other development on public land that has been protected before Trump's move.

The Bears Ears National Monument, a 1.35 million-acre home to thousands of Native American archeological and cultural sites, will shrink by about 85 percent.

The 1.87 million-acre Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, the largest land national monument in the country, will be cut in half.

The action by Trump is the largest reduction of national monuments in US history.

Trump will now face legal challenges over the new proclamations, most notably from the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition, the group of five Native American tribes that petitioned for Bears Ears to be given monument status.

Ethel Branch, the attorney general for the Navajo Nation, told reporters in a call ahead of Trump’s trip to Utah that the looming announcement was “absolutely shocking” and totally “disrespectful” of the decades of work that went into establishing Bears Ears...

There was absolutely no consultation with our nation in advance of this decision. We were greatly upset by that. And ultimately, the president doesn’t have authority to take the steps he seeks to take on Monday. We plan to challenge that in court.

While previous administrations have reduced the size of monuments before there is however no legal precedent that establishes Trump’s authority to abolish, shrink or otherwise weaken national monuments as only Congress has the legal power to rescind or weaken protections for monuments designated under the Antiquities Act.

Trump has threatened the future of 25 other national monuments as he has already signed executive orders in April ordering Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to review multiple sites for measures such as Monday's actions in Utah.

OOPS! Idiot Trump Mistakenly Tweets The Truth That He Knew Flynn Had Lied To The FBI When He Fired Him!

On Friday it was reported that Trump's former national security aide Michael Flynn was working with prosecutors on the Russia investigation.

On Saturday Trump tweeted that he fired Flynn because he lied to both the Vice President and the FBI, a statement that some observers claim shows that Trump tried to obstruct justice...

In any event this moronic tweet from Trump has some critics pointing out that the post implies he knew Flynn had lied to the FBI when he fired him — and before he reportedly asked former FBI Director James Comey to go easy on Flynn!!!

This leads to a few questions.

If true why did Trump so long to fire Flynn?

Why did Trump fail to fire Flynn until his lies were publicly exposed?

Why did Trump pressure Director Comey to let the Flynn prosecution go if he knew about Flynn's lies?

Jim Dowd take the hit like a good soldier

In a panic, after realizing he had mistakenly told the truth, Trump decided to throw one of his personal lawyers, Jim Dowd, under the bus. He proceeded to make Dowd take responsibility for "crafting" the offending tweet and then apologize to White House officials saying...

"he should have been more careful with his language"

Trump took to Twitter again late Saturday to throw some much needed misdirection to his supporters to latch onto blaming none other than Hillary Clinton for her alleged misdeeds....

Donald then added...

Nice try but Donny but you can't untweet that first one... and it was a doozy!

SHAME: Trump Excludes The LGBTQ Community In His Official Statement Recognizing "World AIDS Day"

In a stunning show of disrespect Donald Trump failed to mention the LGBTQ community in his official statement recognizing World AIDS Day...

On World AIDS Day, we honor those who have lost their lives to AIDS, we celebrate the remarkable progress we have made in combatting this disease, and we reaffirm our ongoing commitment to end AIDS as a public health threat,” 

This is mind boggling since, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), gay and bisexual men account for an estimated 70 percent of new HIV infections in the U.S..

FACT CHECK: About 1.1 million people in the U.S. are estimated to be living with HIV/AIDS, according to the CDC, with another 36 million worldwide.

Former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton both mentioned the disease’s disproportionate impact on the LGBTQ community. Unsurprisingly, like Trump, George W. Bush also failed to note the relationship between gay people and HIV/AIDS in his past statements on the day.

Scott Schoettes, the HIV Project director at Lambda Legal, slammed Trump's failure to mention the LGBTQ community and other vulnerable populations saying the Trump administration “simply doesn’t care” about the disease.

Schoettes was one of six members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS to resign from the council in June in protest of this administrations treatment of the LGBTQ community and the council.

The ONE campaign, an international nonprofit that targets preventable diseases, also released a report slamming the Trump administration's approach to HIV/AIDS saying...

For the first time in 15 years, the U.S. government is showing signs of retreat from this fight. The Trump administration appears ready to unilaterally trade the iconic red ribbon for a white flag of surrender in the global fight against AIDS.

This accusation is borne out of Donald Trump's proposal to cut $800 million from the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), which supports treatment, testing and counseling around the world, particularly in Africa.

In another slap in the face to those that suffer from HIV/AIDS the website for the White House’s Office of National AIDS Policy has been inaccessible since Trump’s inauguration day and there appear to be no clear plans regarding when or if Trump plans to reopen the site or the office.

Since 1988, World AIDS Day has been observed every year on Dec. 1 to raise awareness of the disease and commemorate those who have died from it.

IT'S OBAMA'S FAULT! Trump's White House Bizarrely Claims That Their Gen. Flynn Problem Is All President Obama's Fault!

"HALP! I have no idea who this man is!?!?!"

In recent weeks we have seen how Donald Trump's White House tries to diminish the roles of past employees who have run afoul of Special Prosecutor Mueller's investigation.

In the three cases (so far) of George Papadopoulos, Paul Manafort and Rick Gates word is immediately disseminated that either the guilty parties didn't work for the campaign long or that their importance was tantamount to that of a coffee boy.

Well the Trumpers are doing it again.

After Michael Flynn pled guilty on Friday morning by Friday night the White House had spun and downplayed Michael Flynn's role as Donald Trump's campaign advisor and then national security advisor by saying he wasn’t on the job for very long and that he was actually an “Obama administration official”!

Trump lawyer Ty Cobb said of the Gen. Flynn's guilty plea...

"Today, Michael Flynn, a former National Security Advisor at the White House for 25 days during the Trump Administration, and a former Obama administration official, entered a guilty plea to a single count of making a false statement to the FBI,"

FACT CHECK: Ty Cobb released the previous statement in the typeface “Comic Sans,”.

After that bizarro world take on the situation the White House decided to go full nutter and claimed that despite Flynn's guilty plea for false statements to the FBI about his secret meeting with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak it was all above board because those meetings were...

 “authorized by the Obama administration

Wait, whaaa...

That bit of lunacy was quickly debunked after the media contacted former Obama officials.

This pathetic spin that Flynn was an employee of the Obama administration or was instructed by President Obama to meet with the Russian Ambassador flies in the face of reason. Not only did Obama fire Gen. Flynn from his job as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency but he also told Donald Trump two days after the 2016 election not to hire Flynn in the first damn place!

LOCK HIM UP! Trump's Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn Pleads Guilty In Russia Investigation

Former Trump adviser Michael Flynn arriving for a plea hearing to chants of "Lock him up!"

In a bombshell turn of events Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian government in his meetings with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

On Friday morning it was reported that Michael Flynn was charged with one count of making a false statement to FBI agents and appeared in federal court in D.C.

In a criminal information filing from Mueller’s team, the government alleges that Flynn, in an interview with FBI agents on Jan. 24...

willfully and knowingly made materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements,”

It alleges he falsely told the FBI that he did not ask the Russian ambassador to refrain from retaliating to sanctions the Obama administration imposed on Russia in late December. Flynn also allegedly lied about asking the Russian ambassador on Dec. 22 to delay or defeat a pending United Nations Security Council resolution.

This plea deal is incredibly lenient considering all of the very serious charges Flynn could have faced in connection with his shady overseas dealings. The fact that Flynn faces only a single charge and that his son Michael T. Flynn faces no charges, is an clear indication that there is significant cooperation and information being exchanged with Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation.

The Associated Press and Washington Post have both reported that Flynn admitted in his plea that he spoke to the Russians at the direction of Trump transition team officials.

After the news of the plea Flynn's released this statement...

In response to Flynn's plea of guilty, Trump lawyer John Dowd told Wall Street Journal...

"I have no reaction. I don’t know enough. I’m not worried about it.

White House lawyer Ty Cobb had this to say about the development...

Nothing about the guilty plea or the charge implicates anyone other than Mr. Flynn. The conclusion of this phase of the Special Counsel’s work demonstrates again that the Special Counsel is moving with all deliberate speed and clears the way for a prompt and reasonable conclusion.

The plea deal comes after the late November report that Flynn’s lawyer, Robert Kelner, was no longer sharing information with Trump’s legal team.

Flynn became a focal point of Mueller's investigation due to his history of suspicious business dealings and financial ties to Russia, as well as his concealing that he worked as a foreign lobbyist for the Turkish government while advising Trump’s campaign.

This latest guilty plea follows Mueller’s team charging Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his former aide Rick Gates with 12 counts and a plea agreement with former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos.

Trump Chickens Out Of UK Visit Amid International Outrage Over His Anti-Muslim Tweets

Reports have surfaced claiming that Trump's White House has called off Donald Trump's "working visit" to the UK after thousands of Brits called on Prime Minister Theresa May to rescind his formal state visit after Trump retweeted three anti-Islaophobic videos posted by a British far-right hate group.

Trump had been scheduled to travel to London in January for the inauguration of a new American embassy but those plans have apparently been dropped as of Thursday when a senior U.S. diplomat told reporters...

"The idea of a visit has obviously been floated, but not December and not January. I would not expect a Trump visit in January."

The report of the cancelation broke only 48 hours after Britain's Prime Minister, Theresa May, released a statement rebuking Trump saying it was "wrong" to retweet the trio of Islamophobic videos.

The January trip was supposed to be a low-key affair allowing Trump to visit the UK without triggering massive protests but since a visit to the UK without protests is all but an impossibility at this point the visit has apparently been scrapped sparing the thin-skinned Trump the indignity of viewing such hostilities overseas.

The White House has not commented on this report at the time of this post.

Accused Pedophile Roy Moore Says "Liberals, Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Socialists" Are To Blame For His Troubles

Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore appeared to blame members of the LGBT community, liberals and socialists for the sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him.

While speaking at Magnolia Springs Baptist Church in Alabama, Moore called the allegations against him "false and malicious," and accused "Democrats pushing a liberal agenda" of trying to destroy his campaign.

Moore went on to name the various people who were to blame in this unhinged screed...

"They’re liberals. They don’t hold conservative values. They are the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender who want to change our culture. They are socialists who want to change our way of life and put man above God and the government is our God,"

Mighty highfalutin' for an accused pedophile don't you think?

In the past month alone five women have accused Moore of behavior ranging from pursuing relationships with them when they were teenagers to straight up sexual assault.

The accusers even include a woman that claimed Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her in 1979, when she was 14 and he was 32.

Moore has in the past sparked controversy with his comments that "homosexual conduct" should be illegal and that Muslims should not be able to serve in the US Congress. He was also removed from the bench as Alabama Chief Justice once for refusing to remove a statue of the ten commandments from his courthouse steps and a second time for refusing to enforce the Supreme Court's 2015 ruling in support of same-sex marriage.

Last week Donald Trump officially threw his support behind Moore.
