The former Chief Justice said that, “In November 2016, when Donald Trump was elected, people signaled they wanted a change. Part of that was a change in immigration policy. I support that. One of the first things he did was issue an Executive Order for a travel ban. That ban was stopped by Judge (James Louis) Robart in Seattle. One Judge stopped the whole thing, thwarting the will of the President and the American people, exceeding his authority,” Judge Moore said.

Government by default

June 12, 2017

By Bill Britt
Alabama Political Reporter

Currently, our State’s Governor, Chief Justice, and Attorney General were not elected to the positions they now hold.

These individuals obtained their current high status because of either scandal or corruption. Their ascendency by default is not meant to disparage these people in any way, but to highlight this unprecedented situation (As is the State’s junior U.S. Senator and an associate supreme court justice).

By Bill Britt
Alabama Political Reporter

Over the past 18 months, political upheaval in Alabama has ruined lives, shattered faith in our institutions and still the stench of corruption hangs around the neck of the body politic like a rotting corpse.

Russell Kirk, one of the founders of the traditional conservative movement in America in the late 20th Century believed, “A society in which men and women are governed by belief in an enduring moral order, by a strong sense of right and wrong, by personal convictions about justice and honor, will be a good society whatever political machinery it may utilize.” He also rightly surmised, “[A] society in which men and women are morally adrift, ignorant of norms, and intent chiefly upon gratification of appetites, will be a bad society.”
