Some Things Are More Important Than Winning

An Alabama woman has alleged that Roy Moore assaulted her when she was 16, grabbing her and trying to force her to perform oral sex on him. Beverly Young Nelson spoke to reporters in New York on Monday, saying that Moore had told her “no one will believe you” if she talked about the attack with anyone else.

Moore responded by saying that he doesn’t even know Nelson; as evidence, she had presented an old high school yearbook with what appears to be a note from him with a signature.

Four women told the Washington Post that Moore pursued relationships with them when he was in his 30s and they were teenagers; the most disturbing account came from a woman who said she was only 14 when Moore attempted to seduce her.

Moore faces Alabama voters on Dec. 12 in a special election to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ former Senate seat. On today’s show, Glenn called the Alabama election a “microcosm” of what the rest of the country is going through as countless people step forward with accounts of being sexually harassed and assaulted by powerful men.

GLENN: All right. It's not looking good for Roy Moore again today. Senate Republicans really don't want to get him elected, and neither do at least five women now.

Yesterday, Beverly Young Nelson announced at a news conference that Moore attacked her in his car when she was 16 and he was 30.

Nelson said Moore offered to drive her home one night after she was waitressing on her shift and it was over. Her boyfriend didn't show up. So he said, I'll take you home.

She said, they got into the car. And he drove her to the back of the restaurant, where he locked the doors. And then he groped her. He tried to take her skirt off, grabbed her neck, and tried to force her head towards his crotch.

She said, I thought he was going to rape me. After she struggled against his advances, she said that he dumped her out of the car in the parking lot and sped away.

She also said that Moore told her that he was the district attorney, and she was just a child and no one will ever believe you if she tried to report the incident.

Moore says this is all a witch hunt. But even if one of the allegations against him is even partially true, everybody in Washington is saying he should drop out of the race and check into therapy.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell believes the woman and now wants Moore to drop out. Now Republicans are brainstorming ways to kick Moore out, even if he wins, in Alabama's special Senate election on December 12th. One option would be for Republicans to allow him to be seated in the US, the Senate. And then expel him.

Some are even considering a write-in candidate. That seems unrealistic this close to the election. But then again, no Democrat has ever won a Senate seat from Alabama in 25 years. So it may not be so farfetched.

This Alabama Senate election is a microcosm of America's current social and political quagmire. The flood of sexual assault and harassment accusations against powerful men and the willingness of voters on the right and the left to overlook serious character problems in candidates in order to win.

Some things are more important than winning. Will America rediscover them?

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Parler exec speaks out against ‘unfair’ Big Tech throttle

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.

Here's how the left used COVID-19 to DESTROY us & our kids

COVID 19 was used to not only destroy businesses, morale, and education but to destroy us and our kids, too. The left is in control of nearly everything now, and they've used that power to make us feel alone. Glenn says he believes a miracle could happen to turn this great nation back towards the principles on which it was founded — BUT, we must turn back towards God first. Life DOES have meaning and tomorrow WILL be better.
