    The Alabama Supreme Court has upheld the dismissal of a 2012 lawsuit which wanted Alabama's Secretary of State to certify the birth certificate of each presidential candidate before allowing their names to appear on the general election ballot. The court ruled 7-2 on the issue, with Chief Justice Roy Moore one of two justices who dissented from the majority's decision, arguing the lower court should have directed the secretary of state to check candidate birth certificates. The justices who agreed that the lawsuit should be dismissed were Michael F. Bolin, Tommy Bryan, James Allen Main, Glenn Murdock, Greg Shaw, Lyn...

    Christian Post ^ | 02/08/2014 | BY KATHERINE WEBER
    Alabama's chief justice has jumped into the debate on same-sex marriage by encouraging all 50 U.S. governors to push for an amendment to the U.S. constitution that would define marriage as being solely between a man and woman. Roy Moore, chief justice of the state's Supreme Court, sent a letter to all 50 governors on Wednesday, encouraging their legislatures to approve of a convention that would address a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman, both on a state and federal level. In the letter, Moore cited the U.S. Constitution's Article V, which forces Congress to...

    What’s been the biggest challenge in challenging Obama’s eligibility in court? It’s been finding a judge who isn’t afraid to allow the merits of the case against Obama to be argued in court. The Alabama Supreme Court might just be different. In an earlier case before the Alabama Supremes, Associate Judge, Tom Parker, stated “McInnish has attached certain documentation (Joe Arpaio’s investigation) to his mandamus petition, which, if presented to the appropriate forum as part of a proper evidentiary presentation, would raise serious questions about the authenticity of both the ‘short form’ and ‘long form’ birth certificates of President Barack...

    The Alabama Democrat Party just submitted a completely different birth certificate than the one that was posted at the White House website in 2011. Larry Klayman, the plaintiff’s counsel submitted the forgery of Barack Hussein Obama’s birth certificate that was posted to whitehouse.gov on 4-27-2001 (seen below). Fogbow/Jack Ryan obot group produced another bogus one. Still a third birth certificate has been submitted by Alabama Democrats to the Supreme Court. Remember, this court is being presided over by Chief Justice Roy Moore, who supported Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, when he believed Obama to be a usurper and denied following orders...
  • Alabama Democratic Party Submits Different Obama Birth Certificate In Ballot Challenge Appeal

    In a unusual rare move, the Alabama Democratic Party has submitted a amicus brief in the McInnish Goode v Chapman Appeal case. The reason being is most likely because the Alabama Supreme Court has Chief Justice Roy Moore presiding over it. He supported Lt. Col. Terry Lakin during his court martial. Another worry for them is another justice named Tom Parker. He once opined in a prior McInnish case: "McInnish has attached certain documentation to his mandamus petition, which, if presented to the appropriate forum as part of a proper evidentiary presentation, would raise serious questions about the authenticity of...

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Roy Moore, forever known as Alabama’s Ten Commandments judge, has been re-elected chief justice in a triumphant political resurrection after being ousted from that office nearly a decade ago. Republican Moore defeated Jefferson County Circuit Judge Bob Vance, a Democrat, to win back his former office. “It’s clear the people have voted to return me to the office of chief justice,” Moore said. “I have no doubt this is a vindication. I look forward to being the next chief justice,” Moore told a crowd of sign-waving supporters. Moore thanked supporters at his party for sticking with him...

    Roy Moore is known nationally as the Alabama Supreme Court chief justice who was kicked off the court for refusing a federal court order to move a Ten Commandments monument from the courthouse. Moore ran for the office again and won in the primary in spite of being outspent. "We opposed about $3 million with about $600,000 and won by over 80,000 votes in the general," he details. "That was a pretty good win." Judge Moore says a slate of Republicans was seated on the court by voters, and he believes they will strive together to uphold the U.S. and...

    Now that’s a comeback. Roy Moore, the nationally known “Ten Commandments Judge” and former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, on Tuesday won the Republican nomination in his state to regain his old seat after being ousted from it in 2003. “The people have spoken,” Moore said, according to the Montgomery Advertister. Moore was forced out of his job about a decade ago after refusing to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments — at the order of a federal judge — that he placed in the state’s judicial building while serving as chief justice.

    Judge Roy Moore, who has been fighting the "tyranny" of the federal government for nearly a decade, confirmed today that he is considering a bid to challenge Barack Obama for the presidency in 2012. Although he's not yet taken the steps of setting up an exploratory committee, Moore told WND today that the nation needs to change its course, and he's been in touch with members of the tea party, largely credited for the overwhelming sweep of conservatives during the 2010 election.

    Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore says he's very likely to run for governor again next year. Moore told the Associated Press that he plans to announce his decision June 1. That's when he could start raising money for the Republican primary in June 2010. "Right now I'm very inclined to enter. I feel there is a need, and I feel I'm well qualified for the position," he said. Moore, 62, garnered just 33 percent of the GOP primary vote when he ran against Gov. Bob Riley in 2006. But Riley can't run again in 2010. In that...

    This is a WorldNetDaily printer-friendly version of the article which follows. In 1774, a young James Madison, while traveling through Culpeper County in Virginia – well before he became our fourth president – passed by a jail where a number of Baptist preachers had been incarcerated for nothing more than preaching without an official government license. One of these "criminals" preached from a window of the jail to any who would listen. Madison would never forget the dedication of those brave preachers – nor the audacity of the officials who had jailed them.

Just the level. That's because here, and across the country, he's known not just as Roy Moore, but as "Roy Moore, Ten Commandments Judge"--the Southern Baptist-cum-chief justice of Alabama who defied a federal court order to remove his 2 1/2-ton monument to the Commandments from the state courthouse, and lost his job as a result. It's a moniker that wins him automatic support in some quarters, and deafens ears before he even...

    A little-known state senator from Slocomb is moving toward a race for the 2006 Republican nomination for governor, entering a field that includes Gov. Bob Riley and Roy Moore. Though she has said only that she is considering running, Harri Anne Smith, 43, has created a campaign committee and cashed the check on a major donation from Mignon C. Smith, 74-year-old Avondale Mills heiress and longtime Republican Party promoter. Wallace Malone, the longtime CEO of SouthTrust, has a long-standing relationship with Sen. Smith. John Grenier, another prominent Republican, has sent out letters advising donors that she would be calling. And...

    Just because there is no 2008 presidential candidate you're excited about, doesn't mean you can't be involved in politics. Just because there is no congressional candidate you can support in 2006, doesn't mean you can't be involved in politics. Just because there are so few righteous men and women running for office in America today, doesn't mean you are supposed to sit at home and drop out. In fact, it's more important than ever that Americans who revere the Constitution and who understand the moral crisis we face get involved in politics. Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?

    Gov. Bob Riley, who on Saturday announced his bid for a second term, holds a 19-point lead over ousted Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore among likely voters in the 2006 Republican gubernatorial primary, the results of a new statewide survey suggest. The Mobile Register-University of South Alabama poll showed Riley with 44 percent and Moore with 25 percent. The remainder were undecided. The results mark a dramatic turnaround from January, when a similar Register-USA poll found Moore leading the governor 43-35 in a hypothetical GOP contest. The findings also defy what was once the prevailing political wisdom in Alabama:...

    BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (Reuters) - Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who was fired in 2003 for disobeying a federal order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from a courthouse, said on Monday he would be a candidate for governor of Alabama in 2006.

"It is a crucial time to run for office when rights and liberties are being eroded, taxes climb, the education of our children declines and morality...

Riley is having a 61st birthday party Saturday in Birmingham, where many of his supporters expect him to kick off a re-election campaign. For months, Moore has been saying that he was praying about whether to run...
