    I hope that is what Moore means, I just don't want to give his detractors an opening to claim I am saying he is for one thing and they can "prove" he is for the other with his quote.

    I am simply being cautious since he is quoted as saying he wants to INCREASE defense spending.

    Even if he is wrong on defense spending he is far and away better than any Senator but Rand and certainly than his Demoncrat opponent.

    I never said he was perfect, maybe Rand can get him to see we need to withdraw the empire and use part of the savings for any necessary spending changes.

    It demonstrates his strict interpretation of the Constitution and a strict interpretation of the Constitution will yield correct votes on things like SS, minimum wage, defense, health care, etc.

    The U.S. Administration is getting ready to announce as early as this week a plan to expand oil and gas drilling in U.S. offshore waters, including in the Atlantic, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the plan. In April this year, President Donald Trump issued an executive order directing the Department of the Interior to revise the schedule of proposed oil and gas lease sales, to include, but not limited to, the Western Gulf of Mexico, Central Gulf of Mexico, Chukchi Sea, Beaufort Sea, Cook Inlet, Mid-Atlantic, and South Atlantic. The East Coast is a territory that President Barack Obama had ruled out as an area for drilling. According to Bloomberg’s sources, the new plan responds to the oil industry’s drive to have more areas to drill. The new offshore oil drilling plan would be for the five years from 2019 to 2024 and would replace the Obama drilling plan that ends in 2022.

    His judicial history, besides the well known incidents we have this: Maybe it wasn’t meant that way. From the Times’ piece’s title, “In Sex Crimes and Other Cases, Roy Moore Often Sided With Defendants,” readers may assume the implication is that Judge Moore exhibited the common human tendency to go soft on that of which one is himself guilty. (As with seemingly everyone now, Moore currently faces sexual-misconduct allegations.) Instead, however, the Times paints a picture of a moral, principled judge who often sided with the little guy against the powers that be. What may surprise many, however, is that judge Moore’s principles, as true principles will, extended to areas that his passions didn’t. As the Times reports, “‘He consistently was more interested in the arguments of the criminal defendants than many of his colleagues,’ said Matt Lembke, an appellate lawyer in Birmingham who has argued several cases in front of Mr. Moore. ‘And I think that stemmed from a distrust of government power reflected in his judicial philosophy.’” As for Moore’s empathy, the Times provides some striking examples: When a man on death row missed a filing deadline with a lower court, and when most of the Alabama Supreme Court opted not to review his case, Mr. Moore was one of two justices who voted the other way and said some of the evidence used to convict him seemed deficient. In another instance, Mr. Moore wrote that a man’s “sentence of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole for a nonviolent, drug-related crime reveals grave flaws in our statutory sentencing scheme.” And in another case, Mr. Moore dissented and said a man’s unpaid meal at a Waffle House should have led to a theft conviction, not a 35-year sentence for robbery. He called the case, which the majority voted not to review, “a serious miscarriage of justice.” Two lawyers who worked with Moore told the Times that the judge sought to protect those wronged by the system. “‘He had no love for criminals, but he believed that every defendant was entitled to due process of law,’ one of the lawyers, Matthew Clark, said in an e-mail. ‘He saw many cases where the defendants, especially young black men, would be convicted solely on very weak circumstantial evidence.’”

    China has started construction on a network of refugee camps along its 880-mile border with North Korea, quietly preparing for the mass exodus of refugees that the collapse of Kim Jong Unís regime could potentially cause. Detailed plans for the camps, intended to house thousands of migrants who might flee a crisis on the Korean Peninsula, emerged after internal documents from a state-run telecom giant went viral on the Chinese social media site Weibo on Thursday and were reported by The Financial Times on Sunday. The telecom company appeared to be tasked with providing the camps with internet services, and the document stated that camps were planned in three villages in Changbai County and two cities in the northeastern province of Jilin, on the border, on state-owned land.
