In a statement issued Friday, the campaign for former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore called on The Washington Post to retract a report claiming charity that he headed did not report to the IRS that in 2011 “it guaranteed him $498,000 in back pay.” According to the Post’s Robert O’Harrow Jr. and Shawn Boburg, that guarantee by the Foundation for Moral Law should have been reported as compensation, and “would have triggered a federal tax bill of more than $100,000.” “The Washington Post recently published a number of hit pieces on Judge Moore and how he was compensated by the Foundation for Moral Law for work performed on their behalf,” a statement attributed to Moore campaign chairman Bill Armistead said. “The stories have contained misrepresentations and inconsistencies designed, not to tell the truth, but to hurt Judge Moore politically.” Armistead argued the Post “contradicted itself” because an October 11 story it published claimed Moore earned more than $1 million. The statement also disputed the Post’s claim Moore owed the IRS money, given Moore had not yet received the money that was guaranteed. “In today’s story, the Post alleges that Judge Moore failed to pay taxes on a promissory note

FBN’s Dobbs: Uranium One ‘May Well Turn Out To Be the Biggest Scandal in American Political History’


While speaking with Peter Schweizer, the author of “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” and Breitbart News senior editor-at-large on Friday, Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs argued that the Uranium One deal could end up being the biggest scandal in the history of American politics. Dobbs said, “There is no clear statement as to why we would give up, for any reason, any price, 20% of our uranium in this country. And that is a question that is left open still unanswered. and secondly, have you ever heard of anyone putting $145 million, at one moment, into the hands of the Clinton foundation? And the answer is, of course not. These questions, most basic and fundamental, were armed by the very committee made up of the very agencies, departments, and individuals responsible for national security. this, this is the biggest Obama scandal. I think it may well turn out to be the biggest scandal in American political history.” Follow Breitbart.tv on Twitter @BreitbartVideo

Ken Burns: Many Confederate Monuments Are ‘All About the Reimposition of White Supremacy’


Friday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” filmmaker Ken Burns said many Confederate monuments were “all about the reimposition of white supremacy” after the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision causing the desegregation of public schools. Burns said, “There is a professor — Barbara Fields — from Columbia University, and she says the civil war is still going on. Not only still going on, but it can also still be lost. Regrettably, it can still be lost … We haven’t resolved this the question of race.” He continued, “So the monuments is a big deal and we have to understand it. First thing is, just check the date that monument went up. If it’s the 1880s and ’90s, take it down. It’s all about the reimposition of white supremacy. When we say the south and my heritage, remember in a 1861, 9 million people in the south. Four million are slaves. They are not interested in monuments to the Confederacy, a disloyal thing. Remember, the Confederacy is responsible for more loyal American deaths than Hitler or Tojo. We’re celebrating who our government considered traitors, who were never recognized, the Confederate States of America. The official name of the United  States

Mark Cuban Hints at 2020 Presidential Run


Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban sat down with TMZ’s Harvey Levin for an interview that will air Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “OBJECTified” and hinted at a presidential bid in 2020. “I think we’re going into a time where you need somebody who can connect to people and relate to people, and I think I qualify on each of those,” Cuban told Levin. “Now, whether or not I’ll do it, it’s a big decision.” “You sound like a candidate,” Levin told Cuban. Cuban replied, “I’m a concerned American citizen.” “Well, so am I, but I’m not a candidate,” Levin responded. “I wouldn’t run unless I have solutions,” Cuban stated. “If I have solutions, then I have something to offer. If I don’t, you won’t see me anywhere near being a politician.” After the interview, Levin said he felt there is an “extremely good chance” Cuban will run for president.

Doug Jones: With Exception of College Football, There’s Hesitancy to Say ‘I’m From Alabama’


Earlier this week, Alabama Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Doug Jones addressed a crowd gathered at the Macedonia Baptist Church in Daphne, AL to make a pitch for his candidacy. During his speech, which was captured on video and posted to YouTube, Jones stressed the importance of his successful prosecution of those behind the 1963 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham in the late 1990s as a U.S. attorney during the Clinton administration. While explaining the importance of that outcome, Jones said there had been times when he was hesitant to say he was from the state of Alabama when asked where he was from. “In doing that case – in doing that and seeing the reaction when I speak all over the country where I talk about what it meant to the city of Birmingham and what it meant to the state – that has been as almost important to me on a personal level because I was finally able to get around, and you guys are going to know what I’m talking about. When you go outside Alabama, and you travel around the country – people say, ‘Where are you from?’ Let’s be honest – unless you’re talking about college
