    The Constitution gives absolutely no authority, none, to the federal government to dictate marriage policy to the states. *** *** When the Obergefell case was decided by the Supreme Court, its ruling legally applied only to the plaintiffs before it, as is true in any case before any court. The concept of ďjudicial reviewĒ - in which the Court, and not Congress, gets to decide what the law is - is not found in the Constitution anywhere. It was invented out of the ether by Chief Justice John Marshall in 1803 as a way for the Court to grant dictatorial...

Pryor's comments to Moore during his trial focused more on Moore's refusal to stop acknowledging God as chief justice. "[Y]our understanding is that the federal court ordered that you could not acknowledge God; isn't that right?" Pryor asked. "And if you resume your duties as chief justice after this proceeding, you will continue to acknowledge God as you have testified that you would today?" "That's right," Moore replied.

Robert Bentley saying that he intends to continue to recognize the state's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage and urging the governor to do so. Moore's office released the three-page letter that was delivered to the governor this morning in response to a federal judge's ruling Friday striking down the ban. "As Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, I will continue to recognize the Alabama Constitution and the will of the people overwhelmingly expressed in the Sanctity of Marriage Amendment," Moore wrote.

    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...

    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...

    Whatís been the biggest challenge in challenging Obamaís eligibility in court? Itís been finding a judge who isnít 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 ďMcInnish has attached certain documentation (Joe Arpaioís 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 Ďshort formí and Ďlong formí 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 plaintiffís counsel submitted the forgery of Barack Hussein Obamaís 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...

Now, 2012 Constitution Party presidential nominee Virgil Goode and Alabama Republican Party leader Hugh McInnish are asking the stateís highest court to force Secretary of State Beth Chapman...

    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...
