Judge Roy Moore: Judiciary following "blindly" in birth cert case, forgetting the Constitution

Ex-chief justice of Alabama, Roy Moore, comments on the ruling by Army Col. Lind who refused to allow evidence to be obtained that would settle the birth records of President Obama because it may be "embarrassing."

FORT MEADE, Md. – The military judge who curiously noted without explanation that uncovering evidence about President Obama's birth records could prove "embarrassing" and denied an officer the right to obtain potentially exculpatory evidence in a court-martial simply has forgotten the Constitution, the supreme rule of the United States.

So says Judge Roy Moore, who battled the politically correct climate as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court a decade ago and ultimately was removed from office by a state panel that refused to review the constitutionality of a federal court order.

His comments came today in an interview with WND about who yesterday was denied permission by Army Col. Denise R. Lind to obtain evidence that could document Obama is not eligible to occupy the Oval Office.

Lakin refused to follow his latest deployment orders to go to Afghanistan, because he was unable through Army channels to document Obama's eligibility, and the president himself has declined opportunities to do so.

Judge Moore, who now operates through the has personal experience with challenging the powers that be to follow the Constitution. His dispute centered on a Ten Commandments display he put in a state building to recognize the God who inspired the Founders of America.

A federal judge opined that the monument shouldn't be there and ordered its removal. Moore refused and ultimately was removed from office by a state commission that he says "blindly" followed the order without evaluating its legitimacy.

With her decision, Lind mirrored a number of federal judges who have ruled on civil lawsuits over Obama's eligibility. They have without exception denied the plaintiffs' access to any requested documentation regarding the president's eligibility.

Lind ruled that it was "not relevant" for the military to be considering such claims, that the laws allegedly violated by Lakin were legitimate on their face and that the chain of command led up to the Pentagon, and that should have been sufficient for Lakin.

Moore said the ruling is a symptom of a judiciary across the nation that now believes in following "blindly."

Chart of Federal deficits with and without the Iraq war

I thought this comparison was very interesting. For all the griping about the cost of the war, it pales in comparison (when you factor in the timeline in which it was spent) to the stimulus numbers. And it's not just the amount of money that was spent, but what it was spent on that adds insult to injury.

From :

For years -years!- under George W. Bush, the Democrats and their Leftist allies cried rivers of crocodile tears over the money being spent to first liberate, then stabilize that land. They claimed so often and so loudly to be worried about the debts incurred and the deficits run, that they convinced the electorate that they would actually be better stewards of the public’s money, and partly for that were given control of Congress in 2006.

Well, have a look at this:

In less than two years, the Democrats have made spending on the war in Iraq look like :

As President Obama prepares to tie a bow on U.S. combat operations in Iraq, Congressional Budget Office numbers show that the total cost of the eight-year war was less than the stimulus bill passed by the Democratic-led Congress in 2009.

A Bad News Day for Democrats

This consolidated report from , a site that I just discovered through RWN.

A quick scan of the headlines this morning:

—– NYT:

—– Byron York:

—– Larry Sabato:

—– Fox News:

—– NYT :

—– And in a sign of ultimate frustration, the Obama administration is pulling the old Clinton triangulation move by on the issue of tax cuts for businesses … just two months before the Nov. election. You know this has to be particularly painful for both the President and his handlers who believe that the Socialistic policies they’ve forced on the American people over the last near-two years would bring over some converts to their way of thinking.

Runaway Slave [video]

"A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins."

"I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer."

Congressional Budget Office: "spending by the government has gotten worse... and has also not been successful"

Not directly related to the article, this video is still good and contrasts the policies of today with those of yon.

Congressman Paul Ryan (R, Wis) and former Congressional Budget Office Director Doug Holtz-Eakin came together early this week to lambaste Obama's failed economic policies.

In a conference call to supporters and the press, CBO Director Holtz-Eakin said that there is "no evidence" that "the stimulus has really worked" and that Obama's Keynesian fixes simply won't work.

There is nothing about Keynesian stimulus that is going to fix those problems. The spending by the government has gotten worse, has not solved the housing problem, and has also not been successful. Instead, the key to more rapid economic growth is going to have to be the business sector and international trade.

Representative Ryan echoed that assessment, saying:

Take a look at what our government has done in the last two years trying to get this economy out of the recession. The 1.1 trillion dollar stimulus, which is what it is when you add the interest spending, has not worked. It has exacerbated our debt problems. The Keynesian experiment, which was more spending, has failed to produce … jobs, it didn’t bring our unemployment down below 8% as it is promised. We’re still hovering close to ten percent. We’re not producing the private sector jobs that we need to be if we want to get back to our pre-recession unemployment rate. We’d have to create 250,000 jobs a month for five years running and we’re not anywhere close to that. So why is that happening?

Ryan proclaimed the Obama Administration and Congress have failed miserably to shore up confidence in the U.S. economy. ryan said that the current direction that government is headed is in "the exact opposite direction it ought to be going."

The predictions keep getting better: How Boise State adds up to No. 1 in the nation

"Boise State is No. 1 because it hammered and nailed until the bridge-to-somewhere was complete. The national christening came with its stunning 2007 Fiesta Bowl victory against Oklahoma."

So says Chris Dufresne at the LA Times.  Holy smokes, this is going to be an interesting season.  Polls, reviews, opionions ranking BSU anywhere from to, now, .  There is a lot of pressure to perform, and the first game this Monday will go a long way to confirm or deny the placement.

The school has worked for years to build its football program, now the preseason favorite. The formula includes mixing divergent, undervalued players into a winning team.

From Boise, Idaho

The cool-downs after Boise State practices this summer didn't require an ice tub. Defensive end Ryan Winterswyk and teammates simply ran out of Bronco Stadium and jumped in the Boise River.

Boise State is No.1?

Yeah, we know — go jump in a river.

Why the Broncos? And why now?

The time has come to say fair's fair.

This has actually been years the making — born of the brow sweat of thousands who dared to dream. "There are people who came long before I got here to set this up," Winterswyk said.

Reaching the prove-it pinnacle has been a junior college, Division II, I-AA and K2 climb, given that Boise State began in 1892 as an all-girls school (St. Margaret's Hall), was a junior college until 1965 and did not start playing major-division football until 1996.

The conspiracy that is college football would never allow this to happen — or so the politicians have argued.

GO BRONCOS!
