Birmingham, ALABAMA — Speaking in an exclusive interview before election day, Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore slammed opponent Doug Jones as “extreme” on abortion and an “ultra-liberal” on policy issues.
Moore further accused Jones of being “owned” by both the Democrats and the Republican establishment. The latter, he charged, have been working to ensure a victory for Jones.
Moore was speaking in an interview that aired Sunday night on this reporter’s weekend talk radio show, Aaron Klein Investigative Radio, broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and NewsTalk 990 AM.

Regarding abortion, Moore said that “I think he does go to the extreme.”
“He goes further in my opinion then does the United States Supreme Court, which is very liberal,” Moore added.
“My wife on one interview called him an ultra-liberal which pretty upset him. But that is exactly what he is. He is ultra-liberal on abortion. He is ultra-liberal on immigration. He is ultra-liberal on many things. And we’ve got to either bring back conservativism or we will lose it all together.”
Moore said he thinks Jones is “owned by both the Democrats and the Republicans he’s going to try to help.”
He continued: “He’ll oppose the conservative movement, let me put it that way. The Republican establishment actually wants Jones in there because they think they can beat him in two years without a contest. And of course, the Democrats want Jones in there for their vote. So, you know, I am fighting both the Republican establishment out of Washington as well as the Democratic party. And that is a big problem money-wise for us.”
Jones’s extremist positions on abortion are well-known. In an MSNBC interview, he said he wouldn’t support a ban on abortion after the 20th week of gestation. He has since tried to temper his views, telling AL.com that “the law for decades has been that late-term procedures are generally restricted except in the case of medical necessity. That’s what I support. I don’t see any changes in that. It is a personal decision.”
The main page of Jones’s campaign website proudly proclaims: “I will defend a woman’s right to choose and stand with Planned Parenthood.”
Less well-known are the Alabama senatorial candidate’s deep ties to and activism on behalf of radical leftist groups financed by billionaire George Soros.
This reporter documented Jones has been deeply tied to radical groups financed by Soros and has led efforts on behalf of those groups seeking to enact far-left, transformational policies.
Jones’s personal website has urged supporters to get involved with Soros-financed far-left groups and he took leadership positions in numerous Soros-financed activist projects, including one seeking to fundamentally remake the U.S. criminal justice system into one that pushes progressive policies.
He also took a significant role in an effort by a far-left legal group massively funded by Soros to grant full voting rights nationwide to felons released from prison, including those convicted of murder, rape and other violent crimes.
And he is currently pushing a living wage scheme for the state and country that has a history of hurting small businesses, negatively impacting local economies and decreasing employment opportunities for low income workers.
The living wage plot was a pet project of the controversial former group known as ACORN, or the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which played a central role in enacting the scheme in several cities.
