Why are McCain & McConnell Silent on Elder Bush Groping Allegations
The allegations levied by the Washington Post against Judge Roy Moore disturbing and downright perverse. If true, he should remove himself from the Alabama Senate race.
Judge Moore says he has evidence of collusion. If true, he should produce the evidence – without delay.
A growing list of Republicans is calling for Moore to step down – including Sen. John McCain and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Their outrage and indignation is understandable – but it is also rather selection.
A woman tells TIME Magazine she was groped by former President George H.W. Bush when she was 16 years old.
“My initial reaction was absolute horror. I was really, really confused,” the alleged victim told TIME. “The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything. What does a teenager say to the ex-president of the United States? Like, ‘Hey dude, you shouldn’t have touched me like that?’”
Will McCain and McConnell condemn the former president’s alleged behavior?
If Establishment Republicans are going to condemn Judge Moore -- based solely on a newspaper article -- they must do the same to President H.W. Bush. – lest they be viewed as hypocrites.
To remain silent would suggest their actions have more to do with politics than setting the record straight.

2:30pm- Not Okay To Be White? A professor wondered Saturday whether his young children would be able to be friends with white people, in light of events like the Trump presidency and the Charlottesville riots. Ekow N. Yankah, a professor at Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, argued that he will have to raise his children to have serious “doubts” about whether they can have true, meaningful friendships with white people, in a New York Times op-ed. “Donald Trump’s election has made it clear that I will teach my boys the lesson generations old, one that I for the most part nearly escaped,” Yankah wrote. “I will teach them to be cautious, I will teach them suspicion, and I will teach them distrust. Much sooner than I thought I would, I will have to discuss with my boys whether they can truly be friends with white people.” Yankah said he would be raising his sons to be wary of friendships with white people because not only has history given minorities few reasons to be able to trust white people, but also due to the tendency from Trump supporters to turn a blind-eye to President Donald Trump’s “malice” towards people of color, citing past comments from Trump.

1:05pm- Citizen of The Year? GQ Magazine named its "men of the year" this morning, with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick receiving the honor of Citizen of the Year. The magazine released the cover featuring the four "new American heroes," including Kaepernick, late night host Stephen Colbert, NBA star Kevin Durant and actress Gal Gadot. The accompanying piece from GQ is titled, "Colin Kaepernick Will Not Be Silenced." Describing Kaepernick, the editors wrote: He's been vilified by millions and locked out of the NFL—all because he took a knee to protest police brutality. But Colin Kaepernick's determined stand puts him in rare company in sports history: Muhammad Ali, Jackie Robinson—athletes who risked everything to make a difference. Kaepernick filed a grievance against the NFL last month, accusing the owners of colluding to keep him out of the league following his controversial decision to kneel during the national anthem last season. Plus: As Americans reflected on Veterans Day weekend and some called for a boycott of the National Football League in response to player protests during the national anthem, few players were seen taking a knee on Sunday.
1:30pm- Let Kid’s Cross Dress! From tiaras to tutus, firemen’s helmet and superhero cloaks, boys and girls should wear what they want without conforming to gender stereotypes, the Church of England said on Monday, in a bid to combat homophobic bullying in schools. The Church said schools should be a safe haven for play and exploration, and children’s behavior should not be labeled “problematic just because it does not conform to gender stereotypes”. “Children should be at liberty to explore the possibilities of who they might be without judgment or derision,” the Church said in a report sent its 4,700 faith schools outlining ways to tackle lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) bullying. “For example, a child may choose the tutu, princess’s tiara and heels and/or the fireman’s helmet, tool belt and superhero cloak without expectation or comment,” it added. Although Britain is one of a handful of countries where LGBT people have equal constitutional rights, activists say abuse and discrimination remain rife. Todd shakes his head!

12:05pm- Collusion? Republican Roy Moore trails his Democratic opponent for the first time in polling for the Alabama Senate race, days after accusations surfaced that he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl almost four decades ago. Moore faces Democrat Doug Jones, 63, a former U.S. attorney, in a special election on Dec. 12 to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, now the U.S. attorney general. Alabama is typically considered a safe Republican seat. The former judge has denied the allegations about the girl and about having pursued dates with three other teenagers when he was in his 30s. The incidents were first reported by the Washington Post. On Saturday, Moore, 70, said his opponents -- Democrats and the Republican establishment -- were “desperate” and wouldn’t end his campaign.
12:20pm- Hypocrites! While Alabama Republicans, by and large, defended Mr. Moore against what many of them described as a partisan plot, national officials have reacted with shock and disgust. And the shift away from him has been particularly pronounced in the chamber he hopes to join. The National Republican Senate Committee is no longer raising money for Mr. Moore, and most Republican senators say he should end his campaign if the allegations — reported by The Washington Post on Thursday and based on more than 30 sources, including four accusers quoted by name — are true.Question: Should Roy Moore step down? 888-788-9910
