Let's not forget, this is the guy the Republican Party needed in the Senate to pass their agenda. It was absolutely imperative to them that he win that election. And, his strong Christian values!

What a freakshow. And i doubt his post-loss antics have turned off any of his supporters.

Well, in their minds, the election was stolen via lies, outsider interference, and voter fraud. So his antics are playing into their worldview.

Saber rattling.
A spokeswoman for Roy Moore, the loser in Alabama’s Senate special election earlier this month, warned state officials they might face consequences if they certify Democrat Doug Jones as the winner.

Speaking with CNN's Dana Bash on Thursday, Moore campaign spokeswoman Janet Porter issued the warning to Gov. Kay Ivey (R) and Secretary of State John Merrill, who are set to meet this afternoon to certify Jones.

Jones won the special election by 1.5 percentage points, a margin too wide to trigger a recount, but Moore and his campaign are arguing Jones won thanks to voter fraud.

“Here's the thing that Gov. Ivey needs to know: She's up for reelection too and there are 650,000 people who are watching this very closely, what they do right now,” Porter said.

“If they certify what has been proven by three independent experts that say this is fraudulent enough to overturn this entire election, they are going to be accountable at the voting booth.”

That is an important detail. Still, one wonders if Moore and his fellow Alabamans grasp the symbolism in complaining about black people on buses.

How come it's never God's will when they lose? Isn't that God's will? :lol:

Janet Porter is nuts, here's her interview with Dana Bash today on CNN.





Here's some background on Janet, she fits right in with Trenton and the other miscreants:
Roy Moore’s Bonkers Spokeswoman Has Long History of Far-Right Extremism
The Senate candidate’s new flack Janet Porter has long dabbled in right-wing conspiracy theories, anti-abortion extremism, and was fired for openly advocating for a theocracy.
Kelly Weill 12.05.17 12:14 PM ET

Before she went on TV to rep Roy Moore and tell a pregnant CNN anchor that a Democrat wants to terminate her unborn child, Janet Folger Porter was a far-right commentator who lost her radio show over her support for a fringe, fundamentalist Christian movement.
***
Porter is no stranger to controversy after a long career of vociferous opposition to gay marriage, spouting of conspiracy theories, and support for an extreme ideology advocating theocratic governance. In 1998, Porter found herself the subject of a New York Times article: “The Architect of the ‘Gay Conversion’ Campaign.”

Porter (then going by her maiden name Folger) had just raised more than $400,000 to take out full-page ads in newspapers to endorse “conversion therapy,” a debunked and sometimes torturous method of forcing gay people to quash their sexuality.

Porter was no stranger to attention-grabbing techniques. Previously, as an anti-choice activist in Ohio, she lobbied legislators, using gory pictures of aborted fetuses, to outlaw some abortion procedures.

So let’s assume for a minute the women never went out with Roy (I think they did, but play along)

Then Roy got Swiftboated. Something the GOP likes when we’re talking John Kerry.

And Roy got hit by an opposition SuperPac (his claim). Thank Citizens United, something else the GOP loves.

So... Roy got beat by things the GOP likes.

What’s his problem?

Janet went for Round Two on CNN. It's even crazier than with Dana Bash. :boxing:

Mason Walsh
Published on Dec 28, 2017

A few hours after going toe-to-toe with CNN’s Dana Bash and making the stupendous claim that there was only a one in 15 billion chance that election fraud didn’t happen in the Alabama Senate election, Roy Moore spokesperson Janet Porter appeared for Round two — this time with CNN anchor John Berman.

Porter, who has quickly made a name for herself due to her bizarre and contentious interviews, made sure that Thursday night’s segment would rank among her most memorable by immediately mixing it up with Berman. After the CNN anchor noted that the Alabama Secretary of State certified the election results and that a judge tossed out the Moore campaign’s lawsuit, Berman wanted to know what due process has Moore been denied. When Porter pointed to the campaign’s 84-page complaint, this opened the door to an absolutely insane exchange.

Berman wanted to get Porter to explain why one of the election experts the campaign cited in its argument is a conspiracist who has previously said the Holocaust didn’t happen. A manic Porter, however, wasn’t hearing any of that at first. She claimed that it wasn’t true the expert, James Condit, was ever a Holocaust denier. The Roy Moore surrogate then inexplicably stated that she wanted to refer Berman to an “internet blog — Abraham Lincoln’s blog.”

Berman tried to keep things on track by getting Porter to answer for Condit’s comments by reading them off to her, causing an agitated Porter to sarcastically ask the CNN host: “Are you having fun?”

She would go on to chastise Berman for not letting her talk before defending Condit’s record, leading Berman to continuously point out the remarks he had made in the past and asking whether it concerned her that they relied on a man “who said there’s an evil shadow government.” For the next few minutes, Porter refused to believe Condit said any of that, even though Berman said he’d point her to a video.





Dammit Janet, stay way out front next year during the mid terms!


Condit's tweet is still up. :twisted:

Here's a real shock: :evil:
Janet Porter, Unrepentant Obama-Hater
THE BLOG 06/26/2010 05:12 am ET Updated May 25, 2011
By Terry Krepel


WorldNetDaily is Obama Hate Central, and WND columnist Janet (Folger) Porter, leader of the upcoming “May Day 2010: A Cry to God For A Nation in Distress“ rally at the Lincoln Memorial, is the perfect embodiment of that hate. Porter’s anti-Obama scare tactics prior to the 2008 election — she penned a “news report“ from just after Barack Obama’s inauguration in which “Obama campaign supporters from al-Qaida to Hamas to Hezbollah, to Islamic Jihad and the Muslim Brotherhood, continue to dance in the streets,” that “President Obama thanked campaign contributor William Ayers by appointing him as director of Homeland Security,” that “The only thing left of the abortion agenda not yet accomplished is the forced abortion policy of China” — didn’t work. After Barack Obama decisively won the election, Porter immediately embraced discredited conspiracy theories about Obama’s birth, and she increasingly began to use her group, Faith2Action, for anti-Obama purposes.

Since then, Porter has continued to use Faith2Action for anti-Obama political activism without an explanation as to how that jibes with its declared mission to “win the cultural war together for life, liberty, and the family” and despite continuing to declare at the bottom of her column that her identification as president of Faith2Action is “for identification purposes only.” In practice, there is no difference between Janet Porter the Obama-hater and Janet Porter the head of Faith2Action. As 2009 wore on, Porter used her WND column to hurl falsehood after falsehood at Obama, his administration, and his policies:
***
Porter also popped up in WND’s birther video, “A Question of Eligibility,” peddling the false suggestion that Obama could not have visited Pakistan in 1981 on an American passport. In fact, Americans could have easily visited Pakistan on a U.S. passport at that time.

WND and Porter’s Faith2Action teamed up for various anti-Obama promotions. One effort charged people $10.95 to send letters to all 100 senators opposing the hate-crime bill, calling it “The Pedophile Protection Act.” One can presume that activism based on an easily disprovable lie would be utterly ineffective, thus wasting the money of those being fleeced for the privilege.

Dave Weigel called Janet (Folger) Porter out as a birfer in 2011 :blackeye:

By David Weigel

There's more! After the 2008 election, Janet Porter used her column and radio show to spread conspiracy theories about Barack Obama's citizenship.
There are many reasons to doubt whether Barack Obama meets the requirements for the office of president. First, there's that pesky tape from Sarah Obama, Barack's grandmother, where she says, "I was in the delivery room in (Mombosa) Kenya when he was born Aug. 4, 1961." Secondly, there's the matter of U.S. law. If only one parent was an American citizen, as in Obama's case, the law at the time of Obama's birth required one parent to have been an American citizen for at least 10 years – five of which had to have happened after the age of 14. Since Obama's mother was only 18 at the time of Obama's birth, he would not qualify as an American citizen if his grandmother is right about him being born abroad.

Thirdly, there's no original birth certificate – just a "certification of live birth" posted on a website experts say is forged and altered. Fourthly, there's the issue of Indonesian citizenship, which is a prerequisite to attending school there. Add to that the fact that Obama's stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, is listed as his father on his Indonesian school records. If he had U.S. citizenship, according to Indonesian law, he would have lost it when he attended school there or if he was adopted by his stepfather as his records indicate
.

Totally makes sense she birfed just like Roy Moore did. Janet should be a candidate for Realist's coveted "assclown" moniker.
