Say What is the segment of Liberty Nation Radio where we unveil some of the most wacky, astonishing and damnable things uttered by politicians and the chattering class. Here is the latest episode:
Tim Donner: While Republicans and Democrats agree that if the allegations against Alabama senate candidate, Roy Moore, published in the Washington Post are true, he must withdraw from the race. Moore himself has vehemently denied the allegations. The problem is how to verify that 38 years ago, Judge Moore did or did not have an inappropriate relationship with a 14 year old girl. How do you prove the negative, that you did not do that? Well, the left and the right, of course, come at it from opposite directions. Leftists, like Betsy Woodfuff of the Daily Beast, were all over CNN and, in this case, MSNBC asserting that conservatives saying they don’t know how to get to the truth in this matter, are morally bankrupt.
Betsy Woodruff: This phrase, “I don’t know how you find out the truth,” is sort of a profound philosophical moment in conservative media. The idea that there are certain things that are beyond knowing even when women go on the record. When all their friends and their family members go on the record, saying this type of sexual attack happens. And they still don’t think they can believe that. I mean, it’s extraordinary. It makes you wonder under what circumstances would pundits like this believe the truth about sexual misconduct is knowable.
Tim Donner: Well, perhaps if there was any proof. We don’t have proof, which is a reasonable thing to ask for when a man’s entire career is on the brink of being destroyed. Now, over on the right, the focus was on the timing of this allegation. Here is attorney David Wohl on Fox News.
David Wohl: The timing of these allegations, one month before the election, makes them highly suspect. I mean, let me get this straight. This acts allegedly took place in 1979 and her first disclosure is 38 years later. Not to law enforcement, but to a newspaper that has endorsed Roy Moore’s opponent and is hell-bent on taking him down. I’m sorry. The credibility is completely zero.
Tim Donner: Well, this will turn out to be either the biggest bombshell of the 2017 political cycle or the biggest phony hit-job perpetrated by the elite media since, well, since Trump. The voters of Alabama will decide the fate of Roy Moore in the special election on December 12th.
Meanwhile, while Washington is all hot and bothered about Roy Moore, they’re still buzzing about the explosive book just released by Donna Brazile, long time top Democrat strategist, who headed the Democrat National Committee after Debbie Wasserman Schultz was fired when it became obvious that she was favoring Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democrat Presidential Primary last year. In her book, ‘Hacks,’ Brazil describes how the Hillary Clinton campaign bailed the party out of debt and then basically took over the DNC. And on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Brazile responded to the Hillary acolytes who have attacked her from the moment exurbs from the book came out.
Donna Brazile: Do I regret taking on the job? The second time in my life as chair of the party, cleaning up everybody’s mess, taking all of the incoming, being unable to spend funds that I raised. Do I regret being on the road 100 percent of the time, being hacked by the Russians, being harassed, getting death threats. Do I regret any of that? George, this was worse than Hurricane Katrina in terms of the emotional toll. But do I regret standing up for what’s right? Do I regret any of that? No. I wish I could have done more. For those who are telling me to shut up, they told Hillary that a couple months ago. You know what I tell them? Go to Hell. I’m gonna tell my story.
Tim Donner: And tell she did. And it’s an ugly story of how the know-it-all’s in the Clinton campaign, headquartered in Brooklyn, just shoved her aside.
Donna Brazile: The High Command of Brooklyn, the people who were making the decisions, even for the DNC, they didn’t come and work with us. They told us to shut up and basically let them win the election. And when we tried to intervene, we had to spend money we raised to try to help them win. Imagine you the chair of the party. I am from the South and I cannot get one poster outside of Florida, Virginia or North Carolina. To go home to Louisiana or Mississippi, Alabama. I can’t send any resources to those states. I am the Chair of the party. And by the way, I didn’t ask to be Chair.
Tim Donner: But now that she’s unveiled yet more uncomfortable truth about the Hillary Clinton campaign, I kinda doubt she’ll be asked to be DNC Chair for a third time.
Well first, it was Robert E. Lee, then Thomas Jefferson, then George Washington, statues and plaques that have stood for generations of our Founding Generation are being targeted by the left. And now, now the head of the California NAACP is calling for removal of the National Anthem because the third verse has the words, “No refuge could save the hireling and slave from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.” And so Alice Huffman, head of the California NAACP says get rid of the Star Spangled Banner.
Alice Huffman: It’s racist. It doesn’t represent our community. It’s anti black people. This song is wrong. It should have never been there and just like we didn’t have it until 1931, it won’t kill us if it goes away. The real intention got overlooked and it’s become something that’s dividing us. And I’m looking for a way to bring us back together.
Tim Donner: OK, I see. The National Anthem we’ve had for almost 100 years, has divided us and the NAACP wants to get rid of it to bring us together. Can’t make this stuff up.
At the same time, there’s a growing move on Capitol Hill to get rid of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Here is Congressman Gary Gaetz of Florida.
Rep. Gary Gaetz: Mr. Speaker, we are at risk of a coup d etat in this country if we allow an unaccountable person, with no oversight, to undermine the duly elected President of the United States. And I would offer, that is precisely what is happening right now with the indisputable conflicts of interest that are present with Mr. Mueller and others at the Department of Justice. I join my colleague, the gentleman from Arizona, in calling for Mr. Mueller’s resignation or his firing. Moreover, we absolutely have to see the Department of Justice appoint a Special Counsel to look into the Clinton Foundation, the Uranium One Deal and the Fusion GPS Dossier.
Tim Donner: But it appears Congressman Gaetz’s colleagues are not interested in investigating the Clinton campaign and its undisputed purchase of the infamous and scurrilous Trump Dossier. But we conclude, ‘Say What,’ with a true “Say What!” Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi, former Speaker of the House, ridiculing Trump on his visit to China and then-
Nancy Pelosi: You can almost hear the leadership of the Chinese government laughing from China to America. Maybe you can feel it coming through the ground, because if you dig a hole here, you’ll reach China.
Tim Donner: Seriously? I mean, that’s what we use to say on the playground when I was like, eight years old. I’m gonna dig a hole all the way to China by the time recess is over. And now the House Minority Leader finally proves it apparently can be done.
