The President had recently endorsed Sen. Luther Strange for election to the U.S. Senate later this year. Strange had replaced Jeff Sessions when he was appointed by the President to be Attorney General.
But even though Luther Strange lost his Party’s nomination for Congress (now, the race is between (R) Roy Moore and (D) Doug Jones) and was endorsed by the President, this is not really a loss for the POTUS.
Luther Strange was the Establishment candidate for Congress between him and Moore. And Strange is the sitting senator, who will stay there until a new candidate is elected in December. So, for as long as Strange is there, Trump wants to be on his good side. For as long as Strange is in Congress, he will count as one vote to help Trump pass legislation. And Trump wants Congress to pass the Graham-Cassidy bill which will do a little bit to repeal and replace Obamacare (though not too much). That’s really the BIGGEST and likely ONLY reason he chose to endorse Strange as opposed to Moore.
And even though Moore is against the bill for not being conservative enough (and I agree), his primary election victory is actually very good for Trump. No, Trump didn’t endorse him, but he knows what Moore wants. And he, too, wants to Make America Great Again.
Moore was called the “more conservative” candidate and for good reason. According to the Washington Post, “In three books, Moore has described his legal opinion that the United States was founded a Christian nation that ultimately answered to the ‘laws of nature and nature’s God.’… As a judge, Moore refused to obey a federal court order to remove from his courthouse a monument to the Ten Commandments he had installed to underscore his belief. He was removed from his job as a result.”
So he agrees with us that this country was founded A CHRISTIAN NATION and that our laws are based off of God’s laws. And when he was removed from his job for defying the court order to remove the Ten Commandments, he followed one of God’s rules! Acts 5:29: “But Peter and the apostles answered: ‘we must obey God rather than men.’”
So he knows that God’s law is far more important to follow than any country’s law. Which brings us to another time that he was removed from his post. According to the Washington Post: “In a 2002 legal opinion, he described homosexual conduct as ‘an inherent evil’, and he has argued that the 2015 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage should not be considered the rule of law.” So he’s AGAINST the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize gay marriage and believes that homosexual conduct is inherently evil.
So, he’s very clearly a conservative and someone I can get behind. He’s very clearly a Christian and someone who wants our nation to go back to our Christian roots. In his victory speech after the primary election, he said: “We have to return the knowledge of God and the Constitution of the United States to the United States Congress. We have become a nation that has distanced ourselves from the very foundation.”
Do you know what that sounds like to me? He seems like he wants to Make America Great Again. And part of Making America Great Again includes Making America Christian Again. Making America God’s Again. So that we can truly say “God bless America”.
So then why would people think that Moore’s election victory is a loss to Trump? According to CNN, Trump was infuriated that he backed the loser of the election. “Returning from a high-dollar fundraiser in Manhattan on Tuesday evening, an infuriated President Donald Trump watched aboard Air Force One as Fox News called the Alabama Senate primary for Roy Moore against Trump’s favored candidate, Luther Strange.”
Really, “infuriated”? Then how do you explain that he said that he “might have made a mistake” at a STRANGE rally the Friday before the election? According to the Washington Post: “If Moore won the primary, Trump said to applause, ‘I’m going to be here campaigning like hell for him.’” That doesn’t sound like someone who would be too heartbroken about his endorsed candidate losing.
Trump knows that Moore is one of the good guys. He’s anti-establishment, Christian and very conservative. And he KNOWS that that’s the kind of person he wants in Congress. The Republican Establishment has been completely USELESS in passing any significant legislation in Trump’s first year as POTUS. He doesn’t want to deal with and appease Establishment candidates and Congressmen. He doesn’t want to deal with the Democrats either, as I’ve said in a previous article. He wants people who will be on his side on MANY issues.
Trump wants to repeal and replace Obamacare. Moore wants much of the same, so he will vote for a VERY conservative repeal bill. He won’t vote for a “let’s get rid of this one tiny thing so that the media isn’t too mad at us” bill. Moore is as close to Trump’s perfect candidate as you can get. He’s certainly as close to a grass-roots Christian conservative as you can get. And if the people of Alabama can get him into office (which I believe will happen), then I certainly think that we’ll be dealing a serious blow to the Establishment and will be getting closer to Making America Great Again.
Strange’s loss isn’t a loss for Trump. It’s a loss for the Establishment, and potentially a MASSIVE loss for the Democrats. Alabama is very conservative. Liberal policies and candidates are VERY difficult to sell there. But even more so if that liberal candidate is going up against a very CONSERVATIVE candidate.
I can’t wait for the December special election in Alabama. It will mark another step forward to Making America Great Again and Making America WE THE PEOPLE’S Again.
