In Senate Race, Alabama Judge Moore Takes on D.C. Establishment
Despite a fierce assault by the establishment and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the latest polls show former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore with a significant lead in the high-profile race to become Alabama's next U.S. senator. As the establishment attacks escalate, a coalition of conservative heavyweights across Alabama and America are throwing their weight behind Moore, who became a hero to many Christians and constitutionalists over his years in public service. In an interview, the judge explained why the D.C. establishment wants to stop him â€” and why the people of Alabama support him. Moore also outlined his views on the U.S. Constitution, and how Congress can force the federal courts to obey it using powerful constitutional tools.
Judge Moore is best known nationally for his defense of marriage, the U.S. Constitution, and his insistence on keeping the Ten Commandments...
Asked about specific examples of constitutional abuses, he pointed to the erroneous belief that the U.S. Supreme Court's rulings constitute the â€śsupreme Law of the Land.â€ť In reality, Judge Moore said, â€śa court opinion can never be law, it's just the law applied to a case, to a specific set of circumstances.â€ť When the Supreme Court invented a â€śrightâ€ť to a â€śhomosexual marriageâ€ť in Obergefell v. Hodges â€śand automatically people said it was the supreme law of the land, they neglect what the definition of the supreme Law of the Land is,â€ť Moore continued. Specifically, he recited from memory Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution, which states in part: â€śThis Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land.â€ť
Judges who do not understand that â€śdon't understand their own job,â€ť Moore said
His popularity in large part due to Moore's firm adherence to the Constitution and moral principles. â€śI know a little bit about the Constitution, and I know that the federal government is not following the Constitution,â€ť said the judge, a devoted Christian who graduated from the prestigious West Point Military Academy
This article makes me smile. Every time the syncretic Baal worshippers of the Republican establishment try to weaken Roy Moore, ol' Roy gets stronger. One day, I hope that Mr. Moore becomes a Supreme Court Justice.
