And then there’s the Roy Moore thing…

December 13th, 2017
And then there’s the Roy Moore thing…

Uh oh. Now what’ll they do?  It seems the hubris of the national CP executive committee alleging that they ARE the Constitution Party—has not worked out so well.  It’s sort of a King Louie XIV (L’Etat, c’est moi) mentality.  The CP executive pretends it can endorse and fundraise for washed up Republicans like Roy Moore of Alabama with impunity.   We suggest otherwise.

Questions aside regarding the national CP admitting it formed a campaign finance committee for Mr. Moore.  (We have little doubt they will “honestly” disclose that construction in their pending FEC Form 3x).

CP-Idaho cannot help but note that the erstwhile “National CP Director of Communications,” Mr. Gary Welch (aka “Lucy”), recently spent a gigabyte or two of digital ink “splain’in” the junta’s despotic (delusional) acts. A groundswell of opposition by CP voters and supporters has befuddled the CP party elite.  They’re beside themselves.

At issue was the CP national executive junta’s decision to declare that the “entire” Constitution Party endorsed Roy Moore and that it would raise monies in his support…Moore being a Republican notwithstanding, and notwithstanding conflicts of interest (such as long term personal friendships between certain principals involved).

Actually, the junta’s declaration is a usurpation of legitimate authority. Any such consensus, for it to be voiced on behalf of the entire party and its sovereign state affiliates, requires actually asking for consent…i.e. from the National Committee which is comprised of the state affiliates.

That never happened.  But rules are meant to be bent by those at the top, right?

The insular CP elitists in this top-down national party violated their own bylaws with this sort of encompassing declaration.  The executive clique exceeded its proper role as the SUBORDINATE of the state affiliates.  Perhaps that is why “Lucy” Welch goes on and on in that War & Peace length ‘splain’in.

We’ll cut to the chase.  Bottom line:  CP rank and file are simply supposed to obey the elite, their masters.  No questions.

Hope springs eternal.  Maybe this master-slave relation is changing under the pressure of a near revolt.  Protest by the rank and file (to channel Dr. King: “Finally! Finally, at last!”)–has apparently forced the national CP clique at least to try to defend their indefensible actions–via “Lucy Welch’s” lengthy ‘slain’in, none of which is cogent.

Before this insurrection, the CP junta arrogantly presumed it held entitlement; it need explain nothing, being self righteous and all.  Do tell.  Here’s just a SMALL sampling from the national CP facebook page of protests on the CP junta’s despotic back-room Roy Moore “decision”:

By Steve Mcclure; Nov. 21 @ 2:13 p.m. (with 42 likes): “Honest & integrity? I read your defense and found it sorely lacking in both. Abstaining from the appearance of evil should apply to parties as well as candidates and individuals. I thought you were the party closest to my beliefs…I guess I’ll have to keep looking.”

By Andy Stevenson; Nov. 21 @ 2:09 p.m. (with 28 likes): “Welp, so much for my brief, fleeting illusion that the Constitution Party provided a decent alternative for those left behind by the GOP.”

By John Holland; Nov 21 @ 5:46 p.m. (with 8 likes): “Wow, in one move, you have both discredited any “integrity” on the part of the Constitution Party, as well as portrayed us as a bunch of hypocrites who condone Moore’s pedophilia, abuse of power, and outright insane statements.”

By Marv Hall; Nov 21 @ 2:33 p.m. (with 15 likes): “What y’all have done is proven you are NO better than the fake conservatives in the Republican party.”

By Dave Bishop; Nov 21 @ 2:15 p.m. (with 13 likes): “This party may have just signed its own death certificate…This is a terrible decision.”

By Martha Hennemann; Nov 21 @ 4:05 p.m.: “I’m gone now! Want no part of that arrogance!!”

By Floyd Looney; Nov 23 @ 4:25 p.m.: “You can believe Moore is 100% innocent and still think the CP has done the wrong thing here.”

By Bill Carson; Nov 21 @ 4:05 p.m. (with 5 likes): “Too bad.  I thought you all had better sense than that. I thought you had high standards for public office. I voted for Castle because I don’t believe in this “race to the bottom” through supposedly binary choices. Guess I didn’t do my research, my bad.”

By Ken Thompson; Nov 23 @ 3:51 p.m. (with 5 likes): “This is not a party. This is a group of people who want to say they are not Republicans. This is the Republican support party.  You cannot build an effective opposition party by consistently supporting the party you oppose. If you folks continue to support the GOP, you are not a separate party. You are more like a PAC.”

And so it goes.  We’d be bold enough to say that that’s hardly the good press the delusional CP executive hoped would result from its callous overreach.  Each and every one of these complaints (and there are many more) is attributable to an out-of-control and unaccountable national CP executive, one that has been too hubris to bother with ‘splain’in anything…at least until Gary “Lucy” Welch’s recent Tolstoy-length communique.

Still, CP-Idaho dares question: If the autocratic principals in “control” of the national CP today cannot be trusted to follow their own bylaws, and if they are utterly indifferent to legitimate procedure, then why should the public trust them to follow the Constitution, or the law, should the CP ever get flushed into actual political power?

CP-Idaho again states our cause plainly.  The secretive, exclusionary and elitist clique in control of the national CP executive is strangling the life air out of this party.  They are becoming increasingly unhinged.  And yet they marvel and are angered that the body they strangle reflexively kicks in protest and tries to break free?

This “do as I say” top-down control (or sadism) cannot be ‘splained away, despite Welch’s poor effort to honey it.  There’s not enough bees in North America to sweeten or to disguise the reality.  The so-called leadership of the national CP remains rogue.  It’s bad.  No good.  Malevolent.  It is born on an evil root which will always produce bitter poisonous fruit…which is to say hatred.

Censure is the least that should be imposed on this junta.  Removal under sanction ought to be done, assuming justice exists (beyond Moore losing in Alabama, of course).  But these self righteous are a stiff-necked lot; we’ll give ’em that much.  We don’t expect them to change.  They will go down to perdition clutching at the throat of the very Lady Liberty they swear they love so passionately, and yet so often brutally abuse; all the while shouting the excuse that they are holier than thou.  That ain’t love.  And that ain’t righteousness.  That much is plain.

As Lisa Kimberly Knapp, Nov 21 @ 9:14 a.m. (with 8 likes) put it: “This is incredibly sad….I’ll miss who and what I thought this party was.”

    Regarding Roy Moore–a P.T. Barnum quote comes to mind. “Never give a sucker an even break.”

    Moore’s continued solicitation for campaign monies to “find fraud” (meaning he seeks to overturn the election by hook or crook) evokes a folk wisdom: “A fool and his money are soon parted.”

    Those who heed the panhandling of that suburban cowboy “me too” Cliven Bundy imitation are being used to be sure; and that elicits another quote. From Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone”:

    “You never understood that it ain’t no good
    You shouldn’t let other people get your kicks for you”…

    “Ain’t it hard when you discovered that
    He really wasn’t where it’s at
    After he took from you everything he could steal?

    How does it feel, how does it feel?”

    Tomorrow, the Alabama Secretary of State will certify the special election. Numbers I have at this point are:

    A total of 22,819 write-in votes. [Given the margin of victory was approximately 20,700, that means the write in ballots actually determined the race. Moore’s “fraud” fund is misdirected at the Democrat winner, Senator Doug Jones. The election actually turned upon the write in ballots.]

    Of the 22,819 write in ballots…

    Luther Strange — 5,822
    Lee Busby –~3,600
    Jeff Sessions — 267
    Nick Saban — 264
    Phil Roberston — unknown [10 counties had ballots with his name written in]
    Mickey Mouse, etc. — unknown.

    Moore has alleged that “military ballots” and absentee ballots would win him the election. Not so.

    Last week (December 20th) the UOCAVA ballots (Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act) were counted; they totaled 366 and not all of these went for Moore. [These will be reported in the certified totals tomorrow].

    As for provisional ballots, of the 4,967 total, Alabama has verified 2,888; these too will be reported. In any case, Roy Moore clearly lost the election. Whether or not Moore concedes tomorrow is also unknown. I don’t expect he will for two reasons.

    (1) His history in the June 2006 gubernatorial primary; Moore never did call Bob Riley to concede, even though Riley took two-thirds of the vote, a super majority; that shows the kind of guy Moore is.
    (2) Moore is making money on his ironically named “fraud fund”…and as for fraud, Moore has yet to explain certain salary “discrepancies” in the amount of a cool $1 million from another so-called “charity” in which he was the principal.

    The delusional Moore has now filed a lawsuit to block certification altogether. As if.

    Moore’s main complaint seems to be based on a “higher than expected turnout in the race”. Rather than question his own “great expectations” (which is to say he counted on the Alabama electorate to be asleep while he was prowling about), Moore’s twisted logic now seems to be that too many voters were actually awake. What he implies is insulting…and alarming.

    In any case, the only thing that happened in Alabama is that a majority (or correctly, a plurality) of the State electorate recognized candidate Moore as a clear and present danger and voted accordingly.

    Of course Moore’s wolf-in-a-sheepskin campaign (along with the national CP finance committee working for him) won’t accept that. Fundamentalist Pharisees, you see, cannot possibly be in error.

    The longer the Moore campaign carries this thing out, the more transparent he and his zealot pack of supporters become. And it ain’t a pretty sight. It’s now turned into a spectacle of biblical proportions. It’s akin to Legion writhing under the heel of Jesus, foaming and pleading and trying every phony device to fool.

    The truth is this. A predator was cornered in the pasture by Alabama voters, who did their duty to shepherd the State’s interests. They recognized canine teeth under Moore’s fleece masquerade. For his part, Moore’s taken hold of Br’er Rabbit’s tar baby and can’t get loose. That stuff is devilish in wool coats.

    If it takes the IRS to come along and issue the coup d’ grace, so be it.

  4. Floyd Whitley Says:

    It is entirely appropriate–indeed symbolic–that Moore’s pack of ravenous Pharisees would come out in the middle of the night. These are of the same type who came in the deep of night to Gethsemane to slay Christ.

    Moore’s lawyers filed his complaint last night at 10:33 p.m.,and waited to announce it to the press for some two hours so that the dateline would read December 28th.

    Despite pretenses as to the pedigree of their spirits, these neo Pharisees are in fact born of the dark. Their actions have proved as much. They dwell in the dark. Operate in it. And do their dirty deeds in it. They connive in it; they lay in wait as highwaymen to spill blood, and yet all the while masquerade as children of the light (or “patriots” as they proselytize themselves to be.)

    Personally, I take great comfort in knowing that Scriptures identified these so-called men 2,000 years ago….2 Corinthians 11:13-15.

    “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their actions.”

    Their end has already been foretold.

  5. cpvicechair Says:

    Alabama Montgomery Circuit Judge Johnny Hardwick on Thursday denied Moore’s attempt to delay.

    Innuendo, hearsay, tenuous circumstantially based conclusions, stretched statistical constructions…apparently are no more acceptable in the Alabama State Courts than they are in any other state’s judicial system.

  6. cpvicechair Says:

    After the provisional and the UOCAVA ballots are included, the state certified results show that Doug Jones slightly increased his margin over the petty Roy Moore.

    Final plurality is…Jones by 21,924 votes (+1.63%).

    Voter fraud allegations by sore loser (but loser nevertheless) Moore are absurd. Alabama has a voter ID law. So does Idaho. Because of that, we accept the state certified results despite Moore’s apparent inability to reconcile having his pretend cowboy hat handed to him.
