Why Robert Aderholt is unfit for Congress.

Robert Aderholt shows he is unworthy of a seat in Congress.

This man has vowed to destroy America. Would you want his endorsement as a candidate for Congress?

Is Kim Jung Un endorsing Alabama Congressman Robert Aderholt in the upcoming election? No. lt is someone who is even more of a threat to America. Donald J. Trump is endorsing him.

Who is Robert Aderholt and why do we care?

Aderholt has been in Congress from Alabama’s 4th Congressional district for over 24 years. Even so, you probably need to be reminded of his name.

Recognize him? He is the congressman from Alabama’s 4th Congressional District.

(Fayette, Haleyville, Cullman and Gadsden are in his district)

Aderholt is practically invisible except when he is standing for re-election. Even then, you would have a much better chance of seeing him among donors than with those he represents.

Some say Aderholt has practically abandoned his Alabama home for the politically charged and lobbyist infested swamp in Washington. In all fairness it is not too hard to imagine that life in Washington D.C. is more interesting and full of excitement than Haleyville.

There is only one problem with that.

Every two years Aderholt does a fair amount of selective begging for votes. He doesn’t solicit votes cast by people in the Beltway where he spends so much time, but votes from people in Haleyville, Fayette, Jasper, Gadsden and other, 4th District, Alabama towns.

What kind of person wants an endorsement from someone who disrespected our election process?

Now, in the run up to the 2022 mid-term elections Robert Aderholt has received the endorsement of Donald Trump.

A “rule-of-law” advocate would look at the long list of un-American behavior perpetrated by Trump and decline his endorsement. Not Aderholt. Aderholt’s campaign website posted this: Congressman Aderholt issued this statement in response to Trump’s endorsement: “I am honored to have the endorsement of President Trump….”

This man, as President of the United States of America, called fallen American heroes “losers” and “suckers”.

Would you want his endorsement? Aderholt did.

Should we be surprised that Aderholt would crow about an endorsement made from someone who:

  • Lied about an affair with a stripper and lied about trying to pay her to keep the affair out of the press
  • Defended Vladimir Putin against all American intelligence agencies with regard to the Russian interference in the 2016 election
  • Called Americans (notably Republicans) who did not support him “Human Scum
  • Was offered the opportunity to assassinate an Al-Quaeda official second only to Osama Bin Laden. Trump wasn’t interested because he was too ignorant to recognize his name. (Remember that Osama Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri were responsible for the attack on Sept. 11,2001.) Trump didn’t recognize al-Zawahiri’s name so he passed on killing him.
  • Withheld defense assistance to Ukraine while trying to get Ukraine to manufacture dirt on his political opponents.
  • Began to plant the seeds of election fraud even before election day and then refused to concede an election that even his top advisors told him he lost.
  • Oh yea and then Trump tried to overthrow the government of the United States of America and its Constitution. He did not want to allow for the legitimate transfer of power. No other defeated President in American history has ever attempted such a subversive act.

BUT Robert Aderholt, after all of the above and a WHOLE LOT MORE said, via his website, “I am honored to have the endorsement of President Trump….”

Did a President of the United States of America just call law abiding Americans “Human Scum”? Yes, he did!

Who is “Human Scum”? Americans who did not support Donald Trump? Trump has tried to unravel what American patriots have fought and died to protect for over 250 years. Now Aderholt fawns over Trump. Human Scum? You decide.

Before the election in 2018 many women alleged sexual misconduct against Senate candidate Roy Moore. One woman alleged that Roy Moore had initiated a sexual encounter with her in 1979, when she was 14 year old. Moore was 32 years old, After those allegations Robert Aderholt said he was sticking with his support for Roy Moore.

All the more damning for Aderholt, prominent Republicans Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney and John McCain called for Roy Moore to drop out of the race.

Recently Robert Aderholt voted against the “Respect for Marriage Act“.  How could one vote against respect for marriage??  No brainer, right? That would be true but people like Aderholt cast a vote to make it harder for same sex couples to have the same rights, under the law, as other couples.

Why does it matter? Same sex couples can enter into a “Civil Union”. Try explaining that to a hospital employee who refuses to allow a partner in a “Civil Union” to make medical decisions. Try explaining why a same sex couple must propose “Civil Union” rather than “Marriage”. There is no good reason except disrespect for a portion of our society that deserves the same privileges and legal protections that everyone else enjoys.

Oh, your religion doesn’t condone same sex marriage?? Well government is not about what your religion condones. it is supposed to be secular and separated from religion. If it wasn’t, any one of a number of religious notions would be affecting the laws of the land.

The point is: ask Robert Aderholt if he as ANY MORAL PROBLEM with a man and woman living together without the benefit of marriage.  I predict he would not. BUT, he can go on record with a vote to show disrespect to a gay couple who desire the protection of a legal marriage.

Robert Aderholt is good at staying under the radar. When he does stick his head out of his hiding place, he carefully makes comments designed to press the hot buttons of those who let the “shiny objects” get their attention. You know it’s like life insurance for $9.95 a month, no matter how old you are. But nothing is said how much insurance you receive for that Premium. If you are 80, the $9.95 policy may only be for $20 of life insurance. Often the sound bites and hot buttons mislead those who take the bait with disastrous consequences.

Would you brag about an endorsement from Kim Jung Un or Jeffery Epstein or Vladimir Putin? If you were a decent person who loved America, the rule of law and the sanctity of our Constitution YOU WOULD NOT. NOR WOULD YOU BRAG ABOUT AN ENDORSEMENT FROM AN IMBECILE WHO STAINED THE PRESIDENCY.

I can hear it now, “Well Trump might not have been perfect but he did what he said he would do and I liked his policies.” Which one of his policies was worth permanently destroying our Country and its institutions? NONE.

In fact, the man from whom Robert Aderholt is so happy to receive an endorsement is well on his way to being indicted and going to jail. He is in that trouble not because his political opponents are telling lies about him but because officials in his own inner circle  have felt compelled to tell the truth about him in order to prevent him from doing further damage to America.

So Mr. Aderholt, are you happy to have an endorsement from Donald J Trump? How would you feel about an endorsement from Jeffery Dahmer, Sidney Powell and other disgraced convicts in Trump’s circle?

Trump appointed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs identified the danger Trump posed to America.

Robert Aderholt praises Trump.

Lastly, you, Mr. Aderholt, swoon over the endorsement of a man who is described this way by his own Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, in part:

“… it is my deeply held belief that you’re ruining the international order, and causing significant damage to our country overseas, that was fought for so hard by the Greatest Generation that they instituted in 1945.

Between 1914 and 1945, 150 million people were slaughtered in the conduct of war. They were slaughtered because of tyrannies and dictatorships.

That generation, like every generation, has fought against that, has fought against fascism, has fought against Nazism, has fought against extremism.

It’s now obvious to me that you don’t understand that world order. You don’t understand what the war was all about. In fact, you subscribe to many of the principles that we fought against. And I cannot be a party to that. It is with deep regret that I hereby submit my letter of resignation.”

…Mark Milley, Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff

General Milley did not send that letter but every American should read the entire resignation letter of which the above is only a part.

Mr. Aderholt you do not show the judgment or integrity to hold any office. To presume that you have the moral fabric to hold an office of trust is a bridge too far. Members of Congress are required to swear an oath to the Constitution. Where is your allegiance to that document when you praise Donald Trump? You may praise Trump but it clearly shows that you are unfit for office

  1. I am opposing our current representative, the one that does not represent the people of the 4th Congressional of Alabama. I am not running against Aderholt because he does not live in Alabama. Neither am I running against Aderholt because he lacks integrity, does not honor his word, and works hard to be hidden until election time. I am running because the people that work to make the products we use and consume, merit an opportunity to earn, as FDR said, a decent wage, not just the bare minimum to barely get by. Our communities are the foundation of American. Within our communities we learn the values that separate America from the rest of the world. Those values are liberty, equality, and self-government. I join your efforts to restore these values in the communities of Fayette County.

  2. Aderholt has never served the people of 4th congressional district. His only accomplishment over his long tenure has been serving himself and those who can serve his needs. He doesn’t care for our state or the needs of it’s citizens. It’s election time and his war chest is full. Yet he doesn’t have to spend a penny and you would be far pressed to even see a campaign sign. One could blame the brain washed voter who just votes for the candidate with next to his name but let’s not leave the blame there solely. We the educated voter are to blame. A disorganized state Demoratic party is the blame. Yes even
    we the members of the Fayette County Democratic Party are to blame. It’s time for Action not lamenting. It’s time to speak out and actually do the work instead of hoping someone else will. I’m sure I will get a lot people upset by my statements here but at this point hurt feelings are less important than saving the future of this state. While saying the FCDC is part of the problem it’s also a key part of fixing the problem. I urge you to join us August 18 2022 for our next meeting. Democrats, Independents, Right or Left you are welcome. If you pray for a better future for our state county and Republic. Join us to make it happen.

  3. It is enough for me. Many times I have written or emailed about environmental and social concerns. Each letter or email is answered and the answer is always a brush-off. He didn’t care. He clearly does not represent me, nor does he care to do so. He is not elected to represent Donald Trump. We have made a mistake in electing him for so long so that he could do so little.
