I just now looked at YouTube, and can no longer find it. However, you may wish to go there, and then go to "Roy Moore recount." It contains an article by Lisa Michaels, entitled, "The Alabama Military to the Rescue of Roy Moore."

Here is that link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZ-EUp8v5dw

I didn't find it either but I did find this:

Here is the vote count per the Alabama Secretary of State's office:

Jones: 671,151 votes (49.92%) ||||| Moore: 650,436 votes (48.38%)

What Moore is banking on is that there are 20,716 votes for him and 0 for Jones in the military and provisional ballots. That would give Moore a one-vote victory. And, it is about as likely as the Cleveland Browns winning the Super Bowl next year. Actually, it's less likely than that. The Browns currently have an 0-13 record.

She sounds like a total shill and phony, sorry. And I did go to her blog and read her article on the subject.

Conservative Lisa: Recount is a Must in Fraud Filled Alabama Senate Race

At one point, she claimed that the Roy Moore pulled ahead after the media called it for Doug Jones, and uses this screenshot as evidence.



This screenshot was taken at 9:56PM, but AP, who I believe was the first to call a winner, didn't do so until almost a half hour later.

Quote:
BREAKING: Democrat Doug Jones wins election as U.S. senator from Alabama. @AP race call at 10:23 p.m. EST. #AlabamaElection #APracecall

https://twitter.com/AP/status/940784..._election.html
Later in the video, she also claims that a federal judge ordered a recount of the senate race and that military ballots put Moore up into recount territory, all sourced by the Moore campaign according to americanrevolution.co and reaganwasright.com.

Dunno about the first one, but reaganwasright is a satire page.

About – Reagan Was Right

Snopes has an article about another one of their bogus stories, and americanrevolution.co, just like with this one, posted it as fact.

https://www.snopes.com/did-alabama-s...-poll-workers/

So yeah, probably fake news.

Evidently, anyone who is a self-described conservative is--in your mind, anyway--"a total shill and phony"...

You have to change the point to "anyone" to argue it. This is a strawman.

That "nonsense" is found in your own words (which I quoted)...

Nope. The part where you said I claimed anyone who self-identifies as a conservative is a shill and a phony, you made that up. You quoted a few words then created a meaning for them that wasnt there.

Please tell me, then, just what real conservative--and not just a "conservative" approved by the left--you really like.
