Thanks Clyde... was not aware of that one. The more common one of his statements about that era was resulting from someone asking him re: "Make America Great Again" when he thought America was last "great":

“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.”

At the same event, Moore referred to Native Americans and Asian Americans as “reds and yellows.”

If the voters in Alabama choose, as is their right, to have Moore represent them. And admitting my ignorance if this is possible. One would hope the Republicans in the Senate would refuse to include him in their Caucus.

Repeating my opinion regarding Trump's support of Moore. I find it totally disgusting.

Re: Anyone supporting Moore for Political, not moral or ethical reasons

Roy Moore in 2011: Getting rid of amendments after 10th would 'eliminate many problems'

The host agreed with Moore, before turning his attention to the 14th Amendment, which was passed during the Reconstruction period following the Civil War and guaranteed citizenship and equal rights and protection to former slaves and has been used in landmark Supreme Court cases such as Brown v. Board of Education and Obergefell v. Hodges.

"People also don't understand, and being from the South I bet you get it, the 14th Amendment was only approved at the point of the gun," the host said.

Moore replied:

"Yeah, it had very serious problems with its approval by the states," Moore replied. "The danger in the 14th Amendment, which was to restrict, it has been a restriction on the states using the first Ten Amendments by and through the 14th Amendment. To restrict the states from doing something [Continuing Slavery] that the federal government was restricted from doing and allowing the federal government to do something which the first Ten Amendments prevented them from doing. If you understand the incorporation doctrine used by the courts and what it meant. You'd understand what I'm talking about."

Father of 6-year-old Sandy Hook victim hopes to bring unique lawsuit against AR-15 makers

He and family members of other victims have filed a unique lawsuit against the gun manufacturers of the AR-15, the powerful semi-automatic assault rifle that allowed Lanza to carry out his rampage so quickly and with such lethal capability. They claim the manufacturers, Remington Arms and Bushmaster Firearms, bear responsibility for the massacre.
...
Thanks to Congress, gun manufacturers have largely been absolved from any responsibility. After intense lobbying from the National Rifle Association, Congress passed the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act in 2005. Under the law, manufacturers cannot be held accountable when one of their weapons is used in a crime or mass shooting. However, the law allows for a sliver of wiggle room if the plaintiffs can prove “negligent entrustment.” In this case, the legal term means proving the manufacturers were reckless in that they knew they were selling deadly weapons and looking for violent young men as customers. The plaintiffs’ lawyer, Joshua Koskoff, believes they can prove this.

He said Remington and Bushmaster have described the gun as a modern sporting rifle. But in their marketing, they showcase it as a militarized weapon. The gun appears in violent first-person shooter video games and is advertised in a catalog as capable of making the “forces of opposition bow down,” according to Koskoff. The lawyer scoffed at the manufacturers’ classification of the weapon as a sporting rifle when it was meant for trained military personnel, not civilians. “This has military roots going back to Vietnam,” Koskoff said of the gun. “They were trying to design the perfect killing machine for the world’s greatest military. It checked all the boxes.” Moreover, Koskoff said, public filings by Remington show that it has been eager to tap into a younger demographic. The marketing, and the customer base it targets, lead to high-risk users like Lanza, Koskoff said.

Leaving aside the moral and ethical questions raised, which have no legal bearing in this lawsuit. These lawsuits have been unsuccessful since the 1980's.

And more importantly is the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, or PLCAA. In effect, the act shields gun manufacturers and sellers from civil claims brought by victims of gun violence.

Excepting those selling to individuals who are Impaired by Drugs or Alcohol. or haven't been properly vetted. The manufacturer's and seller's in the USA are held harmless.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protection_of_Lawful_Commerce_in_Arms_Act

Since SCOTUS recently affirmed that the Constitutional Right to Bear Arms is an Individual Right. The manufacturer's of this Right must also be included.

Edit: Until the Constitution of the United States is amended. These lawsuits will most likely fail.

Yes... For Good and Bad. The USA is different.

As long as there are mouths that demand food, the oil is coming out of the ground. If you don't want the oil coming out of the ground then you have to reduce world population.

Finally, at last Gary you have made a statement that I totally agree with. +1

Yes. Let's start to reduce the people in countries that crave the most of OUR planet resources!

That's what wars do. Not a politically correct statement to make but true none the less.

Since there are currently 7.5 Billion people and growing:

It would have to be a very large Thermonuclear War(s) to reduce our population to a sustainable level.

Unfortunately... 'The Cure' might cause more damage to our environment than 'The Disease'.

Trump will not have to fire Mueller...........his 'Air Biscuit' investigation will soon collapse under it's own dead weight of Clinton hacks.

Hill-Liary's place in the scheme of American politics is gone and her time is past. The good news for Conservatives is her acolytes and sycophants will keep whipping that dead horse even though it will cost them many more seats in Congress and every local Government(the real cradle of American leadership). Might as well scream at the sky(oh, wait, they did that).

A good time not to be supported by Dims.

My take...

It is not that Trump or Moore types are themselves popular with the majority of voters.

Just that the majority of American voters correctly hold the Democrat Party, Progressives, Never Trump News Media, Radical Left Wing Violent Anti-Free Speech Bigots, et al, in complete disgust.

Robert Mueller's 'pit bull' is coming under intense scrutiny over perceived anti-Trump bias

That investigator, Andrew Weissmann, one of the team's most prominent members, sent an email to former acting Attorney General Sally Yates praising her for not defending the Trump administration's travel ban.

He also reportedly attended 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's election-night party.

I have read and understood what posted.
The US has NO juridiction to decide what other countries capitals may be according to International Law.

Of course. US Federal Government Laws apply to the US Federal Government. Which is the only US Government that has International Authority. Not Foreign Governments, nor in many cases, not even US States.

Any International Treaty or Agreement, including UN Authority agreed to by one of our Governments (Federal Government), which impacts inside the US. Is unenforceable within our other Sovereign Governments (States). If the Treaty or Agreement is in violation of the Authority of the State, as written in the US Constitution.

When this happens. It is interesting that Foreign Governments again disclose their ignorant belief that the Federal Government (Washington) is 'The American Government' inside the USA. There is no American Government inside the United [sic] States of America in the European sense. Just an Association of 51 Governments.

JE... Is 100% correct that International Opinion(s) of the US or Trump, including Foreign Leaders opinion of the US or Trump, means nothing to mainstream Americans.

Trump is real loser..
Donald Trump, who had claimed to have taken a “pass” on an interview and “major photo shoot” for Time last month because he was only “probably” going to be named its person of the year.
Well that didn't happen.
Instead the anti-harassment movement was chosen by Time by naming ‘The Silence Breakers’ on its cover after millions shared stories of sexual assault.

Socially, ethically, etc. He is a loser.

Successful Politics and Power, when it comes to the Political Profession. Are the only things that have any real consequences.

Politically, Trump is getting most of what he campaigned for. Therefore, he is a very successful.

Your, or my personal thoughts regarding Trump as a person. Are irrelevant to Trump's continuing success.

The wishes of the majority, cannot destroy the Freedoms, as written into a Constitution (The Law) of the minority.

But at the moment, under the present day rules, i.e. Electoral College et al, are not the majority being ruled by the minority, i.e. popular vote. Which, I cannot imagine, would have been the the desires of those that framed the Constitution.

And therefore the Rights of the Majority have been destroyed.

Fact check.

The majority of voters did not vote for Hillary, Trump or any other candidate.

As with the Fake Never Trump News Media as just posted. Facts have no meaning for Never Trumper's.

Sorry, you cannot hide from your belief that the Rule of Law is inferior to Mob Rule.

The [Never Trump] media's Russia probe meltdown: 3 screw-ups in one week

1 - Flynn's testimony: Last Friday, ABC News reported that former national security advisor Michael Flynn was prepared to testify that President Trump, while still a candidate, directed him to contact Russian officials. But later in the day, the network issued a "clarification" that the direction came when Trump was president-elect. That changed the impact of the story entirely as it's a common occurrence for presidential transition teams to reach out to foreign governments.

2 - Deutsche Bank subpoena: Reuters and Bloomberg both reported on Tuesday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation had subpoenaed Deutsche Bank for information on accounts relating to President Trump and his family members — seemingly confirming that Mueller had expanded his probe to investigate the president's financial dealings. The WSJ defused that bombshell in a follow-up report stating that the subpoenas actually dealt with "people or entities close to Mr. Trump."

3 - WikiLeaks emails: CNN reported this morning that senior Trump campaign officials, including Trump himself, received an email from an unknown sender on September 4, 2016 that linked them to what could have been unreleased WikiLeaks documents. WaPo issued their own report later in the afternoon that the email was actually sent on September 14 — and linked to a trove of documents that WikiLeaks had publicly released a day earlier.

Absolutely incorrect. Elections are inferior to the Rule of Law.

Tell that to The Donald or Roy Moore.

No, tell that to the Never Trumper's.

Elections in a democracy is the foundation to the Rule of Law.

Negative.

A Nation under the Rule of Law. Does not allow 51% to destroy the Rights of the 49%.

Nations that truly believe in Freedom and Law. Understand that elections must have limited results. If not: The Mob controls.

Or to put it another way: The wishes of the majority, cannot destroy the Freedoms, as written into a Constitution (The Law) of the minority.

Any other belief, is an affirmation of what the KKK believes.
