Judge Roy Moore Trounces GOP Establishment In Alabama Senate Race

The entire GOP establishment, including Donald Trump, just got blown the f*** out.

Roy Moore defeated Luther Strange handily in the Republican Senate runoff on Tuesday night, winning 55% to 45% with 95% of the vote reporting in.

Loser Strange was given $30 million from the GOP establishment to run attack ads against Moore 24/7. President Donald Trump foolishly endorsed Strange and held a rally for Strange just days ago. Moore had the backing of Stephen Bannon and the grassroots who are sick and tired of being ass-blasted by the GOP establishment.

Bannon opened his short victory speech saying it was a victory for Donald Trump. That fell on deaf ears.

He drew big cheers when he bashed the establishment:
"You are going to see in state after state after state, people that follow the model of Judge Moore, that do not have to raise money form the elites, the crony capitalists, from the fat cats in Washington DC, New York City and Silicon Valley."
I like how he threw Silicon Valley into the mix. They need to be just as hated as Congress.

According to Politico, none other than Jared Kushner advised Trump to back Strange (as Breitbart highlighted): "Trump was encouraged to pick Strange before the August primary by son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner as well as other aides, White House officials said. He was never going to endorse Alabama Republican Rep. Mo Brooks, who has at times opposed Trump’s agenda, and knew little about Moore, officials said."

As Breitbart noted last week:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his gang of establishment Republicans implored President Donald Trump to campaign for establishment Republican Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) against conservative frontrunner Roy Moore, the former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice, because they reportedly are terrified that more grassroots candidates across the country will challenge establishment Republicans if Moore defeats Strange on Tuesday.

Moore has led in every poll leading up to Tuesday’s runoff in what has been described as the “first proxy battle” between Trump and his former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, who has vowed to support the economic nationalist agenda that got Trump elected in the first place.

According to the Washington Post, Trump’s advisers “were deeply divided on whether” Trump “should risk jetting to Alabama to prop up” Strange. But GOP establishment forces reportedly waged “an intense behind-the-scenes campaign to convince Trump that he could carry Strange across the finish line with an appearance in Alabama.”

Though White House Chief of Staff John Kelly was reportedly hesitant about sending Trump to Alabama to potentially waste his political capital, establishment Senate Republicans were “unwilling to let the president turn his attention elsewhere” because they worried that a Strange defeat “could prompt some GOP senators to retire to avoid facing the wrath of anti-establishment voters and the likes of Bannon’s Breitbart News,” according to the Post’s Bob Costa.

He points out that Strange’s establishment consultant Jeff Roe “fed regular updates to Jared Kushner” while establishment consultant Ward Baker, who advises a pro-McConnell super PAC that has reportedly “poured more than $8 million into Alabama to support Strange,” updated Trump and Pence. Pence loyalist Kellyanne Conway reportedly “impressed upon Trump how much power his visit could have in Alabama and reminded him that all five of the candidates he backed in special elections this year won.” And establishment Republican Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), who just recently openly questioned Trump’s fitness to be president that in turn got him plenty of plaudits from the legacy press and vicious Never Trumpers, also begged Trump to campaign for Strange.

“You’ve got to go,” Corker reportedly told Trump, according to the Post. “We need you there.”
Ann Coulter retweeted Mickey Kaus mocking Kushner's terrible advice:

This couldn't have worked out better for us as Trump will hopefully now get the message that his support base is not bamboozled by his cult of personality but only voted for him because of Bannon's policies which he ran on and promised he would implement.

Moore seems like a genuine, all-around awesome guy. His speech where he pulled a gun was awesome and made for great memes.

The media clipped that part to try and make it seem like he was crazy. In point of fact, his epic gunslinging got the biggest cheers of his entire speech.

This is more evidence this is a legit populist revolution we've got on our hands.
