This story illustrates how desperately the right wants to make fake news a reality...

A botched sting with a phony Roy Moore ‘accuser’ was supposed to discredit the media. Like similar schemes, it did the opposite.

Alabamans apparently don't believe the women coming forward or don't care.  New poll shows Moore up 5 points over Doug Jones.

And yet...he's still going to get some 40% of the vote in Alabama (at least) unless an even worse bombshell breaks before the election.

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/why-is-roy-moore-back-in-front-time-and-trump-are-probably-helping/

Basically, voters (in the polls taken, at least) got spooked for about 7-8 days and now either don't believe the allegations or don't care enough to vote for someone else.

^ Has anyone EVER provided VERIFIABLE evidence that George Soros has funded all of these things he has supposedly funded?  i.e. protesters, accusers, etc.?

Soros founded the Open Society Foundation, which provides funding to social justice groups that are involved in organizing (frequently violent) protests. He's not in a back room plotting the chaos (at least, there's no evidence of that yet) but his group and millions of his dollars find there way to protests. Here's a Snopes article on the Ferguson riots, for example:

https://www.snopes.com/politics/business/sorosferguson.asp

In all, Mr. Soros gave at least $33 million in one year to support already-established groups that emboldened the grass-roots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson, according to the most recent tax filings of his nonprofit Open Society Foundations.

The financial tether from Mr. Soros to the activist groups gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day national cause celebre.

Soros-sponsored organizations helped mobilize protests in Ferguson, building grass-roots coalitions on the ground backed by a nationwide online and social media campaign.

"WHAT'S TRUE
A grantmaking network founded by George Soros provided funding to some groups that engaged in Ferguson-related protest activities.

WHAT'S FALSE
George Soros gave money to various groups for the express purpose of promoting Ferguson-related protests and riots."

God forbid he gives money to activist groups.  He should ONLY give money to SuperPacs and lobbyists that funnel money to political campaigns so that the politicians will be beholden to him.

Roy Moore Just Blamed His Sexual Misconduct Allegations On Lesbians, Gays, And Socialists

Quote
During his sermon-like speech Wednesday night, Moore again dismissed the women's claims as "false and malicious," blaming the raft of stories about his alleged misconduct on a "conspiracy" cooked up by "Democrats pushing a liberal agenda" who have "tried unsuccessfully" to ruin his campaign.

"When I say they who are 'they?'" he told the clapping congregation. "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. They're the Washington establishment...who don't want to lose their power."

This guy is insane.  You get to own him, Republicans.

The Republican Party has majorities in the House and the Senate and there is a Republican administration in the White House.

If you think that that is the sum and total of "Washington," then perhaps you can say that the Republican Party has complete control of Washington.

Is that the sum and total of "Washington?"

(Even then, it's an open question of whether they have complete control of the Senate, given the party discipline issues that have prevented them from actually securing majority votes.)

Calling the outpouring of sexual misconduct allegations against power men a “watershed moment in this country,” Ryan said that Congress should “set high standards for ourselves so that we can be role models and set examples.”

He then spoke his decision to call on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to bow out of the race. Moore has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by multiple women, including some who said they were teenagers at the time.

“I believe those allegations are credible,” Ryan told NPR in an interview that aired Friday. But when asked whether that standard applied to President Donald Trump― who has been accused of sexual harassment by more than a dozen women and was infamously caught on tape bragging about groping― Ryan balked.

“I think the Roy Moore — I don’t know if — I’m focused on Congress,” Ryan said. “Roy Moore is trying to come to Congress. My job here as Speaker of the House is to help make sure that Congress is an institution that we’re proud of and that’s what I’m focused on. He’s running for Congress and I think the allegations against him were very very credible.”

Grow a spine, Paul Ryan.

What's really telling is that the Democratic party is such a disaster and has such a terrible image that despite the allegations against Moore, he's probably still going to beat his Democrat opponent. It says a lot about how most Americans perceive the DNC. This election might well be a very good example of just how badly the DNC will do in 2018. If Moore wins, it does not bode well for sitting Democratic Senators in red states. If he can pull off a victory despite the barrage of bad news about him, other Republican Senate candidates will be shoo-ins.
