Birther judge elected Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court

Roy Moore, flag backgroundMost noted for his Ten Commandments Monument and his ouster as Chief Justice of Alabama after disobeying a federal court order to remove same, and less known as a columnist for WorldNetDaily, Roy Moore has once again been elected Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, reports the Washington Post..

Moore was a critic of Terry Lakin’s conviction for disobeying military orders in an attempt to force the issue of Barack Obama’s eligibility. In a 2010 interview with WorldNetDaily (a web site he also wrote for):

Lakin “not only has a right to follow his personal convictions under the Constitution, he has a duty,” Moore said. “And if the authority running the efforts of the war is not a citizen in violation of the Constitution, the order is unlawful.”

WND also reported:

Moore said he’s seen no convincing evidence that Obama is a “natural born citizen” and a lot of evidence that suggests he is not.

Judge Moore is the founder of the Foundation for Moral Law, an organization that supports official acknowledgement of religion.

    And if he wants to keep his job, he will abide by the letter of the law, meaning he will be of no help to her.

    I don’t see how he can help her. He probably won’t take office until next year. Even if he took office today, the election is over, so ballot challeges are meaningless. Obama didn’t win Alabama, so he couldn’t block vote certification.

    Imagine being a birfer judge and having no opportunity to birf.

    Moore says that obama is not only not a NBC, but not even a citizen? Escalation!

    There are numerous small towns in Okieland shuffling around numerous Ten Commandments monuments. They tend to find homes on church grounds.

    ________

    It’s been a somewhat subdued couple of days in Okieland. Certain persons are kinda depressed. They’ll get over it.

    Oh no! How can an Apuzzo-ite hold a job, much less a a judgeship. Sure, it is in Alabama, but still. I cruised past Mario’s latest epic landfill of a post. I could not bring myself to actually read it, but when I scanned over it (ugh!) I think I saw a claim that Obama was not a citizen.

    Surely, this is ruse….

    More proof that judges shouldn’t be elected.

    This guy also thought Keith Ellison should be barred from his Congressional seat because in Moore’s opinion a Muslim can not actually take the oath of office.

    Code of Alabama Section 36-3-2 – Terms of judicial officers generally.

    The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and associate justices of said court, the judges of the Court of Civil Appeals and the Court of Criminal Appeals, circuit judges, judges of probate courts and clerks of the circuit court and judges of inferior courts, when not otherwise provided for by law, shall hold their respective offices for the term of six years from the first Monday after the second Tuesday in January next after their election and until their successors are elected and qualified.

    That would be January 14, and after the Congress has certified the election.

    He’s a STATE judge. All he has jurisdiction over is certifying the electoral votes of Alabama. Obama LOST Alabama so there are NO Alabama Obama votes to certify.

    Obama, Alabama-poetic, isn’t it?

    I disagree. It might be a lot of things, but “prudent” isn’t one of them.

    prudent/ˈpro͞odnt/
    Adjective:
    Acting with or showing care and thought for the future.
    Synonyms:
    cautious – discreet – wary – careful – circumspect

    It certainly was prudent to raise a challenge in Mississippi, where the best result was excluding Pres. Obama from a ballot in a state the President could not win. And then drawing an African-American judge and continuing the case in the absolutely insane belief that he would not see the Birthers for the racists (yes, John, that’s you) that thery are. That was prudent, too.

    ATTENTION BIRTHERS!!!!
    I encourage you to contact Mike Zullo and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Ask Mike Zullo if Senator Tom Coburn will hear Arpaio out now that Obama has been reelected. I think Coburn was ignoring the issue because he was betting that Obama was NOT going to be re-elected. But now that he has, Coburn may be more willing to talk. Tell Mike Zullo, that he can actually get a Congressional Hearing on-demand regarding Sheriff Joe’s investigation with Coburn’s help. Coburn only has to file a written objection with the Joint Session of Congress regarding Arpaio’s investigation and the whole election process will stop dead. Congress will be REQUIRED to DEBATE the ISSUE and Congress CANNOT IGNORE the issue.

    John, John, John, – wow, you just keep on goin’. First of all, it is not just one Senator objecting in the Joint Session, but rather it requires one Senator and one Member of the House to file a written objection. Secondly, it is not a “Congressional Hearing,” – but rather upon objection the chambers withdraw from the joint session for two-hour debate in each chamber, and after the objection is voted on, they come back together and finish the electoral vote count and certification. (See CRS Report on counting electoral votes at: http://crs.wikileaks-press.org/RL32717.pdf).

    Thirdly, and most importantly, Congress has not “ignored” the issue. Numerous Members of Congress have looked at the issue, looked at the legal precedents and the available documentations, and not ONE Member of Congress has ever agreed with you or reached your bizzare conclusions.

    Oh yeah, any …. day …. now.

    John, its time to pack it in. You’ve lost. This leaves you with two options.

    1.) Waste another four years of your life, unsuccessfully trying to undo the will of the people, essentially robbing yourself of those four years.

    2.) Grow up, accept that you are wrong, and move on with your life.

    Just wanted to comment that, in spite of all the times you hear people say “our state should secede” or “we should let their state secede,” there is in fact no state in the nation where the number of residents who want that state to secede is more than a fringe.

    John, John, John — ever the impetuous one willing to dive deep into the latest birtherdom tank without pausing to see how shallow the water is. Didn’t think to check the calendar to see if Chief Justice Moore might take office before Congress certifies the election. Didn’t think to check with actual legal authorities — rather than the self-appointed crackpots inhabiting birtherdom — to see if it’s even possible that a state supreme court could in any conceivable fashion undo the will of the people.

    Didn’t recall, apparently, that the Congressional Research Service has already weighed in on the matter of who quallifies for natural born citizenship, and concluded exactly opposite of what the birthers fervently assert. Plus none of that “evidence” from the Arpaio et al “experts” has been given any credence by any court or elections panel, so why would Congress?

    Another epic fail in the offing.

    Oh, please, oh please. PLEASE call for a Congressional hearing on Obama’s citizenship, Republicans. Double down on the crazy. It only cost you the election this time. Please keep it up – it keeps your credibility down.

    Obama, Alabama-poetic, isn’t it?

    Well, the fact that Moore is only a future judge should not bother the people who REALLY verify the election.One House Democrat and one Senate Democrat should object to the verification of the electoral votes from Alabama. On the grounds that at least one future judge of Alabama has vowed he is going to rule the election illegal.

    Net result: nine fewer votes in the electoral college for Romney.

    Alternatively, the electoral votes could be objected to on the grounds of the general insanity of the local population (shown quite clearly in their re-election of Moore), Shirley, there must be some teeny weeny little Reconstruction act that Rutherford Hayes just accidentally forgot to abrogate?

    Hm, we need a real Konstitoosional Loreyer to look that up. Orly should b put on the job.

    If Usurper Obama’s re-election finally proves that the USA has become the Soviet Union, as Orly believes, why Is Alabama still Alabama, and why has it not been renamed Allahobama?
    Kansas, of course, should now be Dunham, with Connecticut’s new name now “042-68-XXXX”. Or just plain 42, as 42 is the answer to everything.
