Roy Moore’s Hate Group Has The Trans Military Sadz: Appalling Ruling Is The Height Of Judicial Arrogance

Via press release:

The Foundation for Moral Law, a Montgomery-based nonprofit corporation dedicated to the acknowledgement of God and the strict interpretation of the Constitution as understood by its Framers, strongly criticized today’s decision by Federal District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly that invalidated President Trump’s ban on transgender persons serving in the United States armed forces.

Responding to a lawsuit brought by so-called transgender military personnel and persons in training programs to enter the military, Judge Kollar-Kotelly granted a preliminary injunction on the ground that the plaintiffs had shown a substantial likelihood that the ban violated their right to equal protection of the laws. The effect of the preliminary injunction is that the military may not discharge or deny entrance to transgender persons. The order stopped short of requiring the military to provide transgender surgery. The Trump administration is studying Judge Kollar-Kotelly’s order to determine its next move.

Foundation President Kayla Moore noted that the Foundation had previously praised the President for rescinding the Obama administration’s plans to allow transgender persons in the military. She denounced the federal court order: “As the wife of a West Point graduate and Vietnam Veteran, I am appalled that Judge Kollar-Kotelly would use her office to force transgenderism upon the United States armed forces. The military is not a place for social experimentation; it is to be a fit fighting force that wins our nation’s wars. This is one more Obama policy that the voters repudiated last November, but now a federal judge won’t let President Trump change it.”

Foundation Senior Counsel John Eidsmoe, a retired Air Force Judge Advocate, added: “It is the height of judicial arrogance and activism for an unelected federal judge with no military experience to substitute her judgment for that of the President and his military advisors on a novel and controversial issue that is not even mentioned in the United States Constitution. The Foundation hopes the Trump Administration will appeal this decision and will support the appeal in any way we can.”

The Foundation For Moral Law openly advocates for replacing the federal government with a Christian theocracy based on “biblical law.”

        He’s insane and the GOP house and senate are OK with this.

        • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

          Do we have quantifiable proof that they aren’t also insane?

          • kcken

            Well, they did vote about 90 times to repeal obamacare (in the house). Didn’t Einstein say that doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results was the definition of Insanity?

          • clay

            What leads you to believe they did NOT get the result they wanted? How many of them lost their job for those votes?

          • This quote is generally attributed to Einstein in most online quote collections, however there seems to be significant debate about the authenticity of this attribution. Others like Mark Twain, an old Chinese proverb and Benjamin Franklin have also been suggested as the originators, but general consensus concludes that they have a significantly lesser claim than Einstein.

            The earliest claim is that Einstein used and published the quote in his “Letters to Solovine 1951” however no specific reference has yet been supplied from that source. There is apparently an attribution to Einstein using this quote in a transactions of the North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference, Volume 71, p. 54, Wildlife Management Institute, published in 1975 although according to Bill Hood’s answer, this volume was actually published in 2006.

            Other verifiable evidence of the quote’s original authorship come from:

            Rita Mae Brown’s 1983 novel, Sudden Death, published by Bantam Books, New York p.68 (attributed to Jane Fulton)
            Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) pamphlet – Step 2: A promise of Hope, p10, James G. Jenson, 1980.
            Narcotics Anonymous – The Basic Text of Narcotics Anonymous which was copyrighted in 1981. It is found on page 11 of the final “Review Form” which was distributed to the fellowship in November of 1981. The quote in that text is “Insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results”. The quote appears on page 25 of this pdf – http://www.amonymifoundation.org
            My read of it all is that Einstein was too smart to define the broad scope of insanity in such narrow terms. However, the quote has been used effectively by Alcoholics Anonymous for many decades to drive home a simple point in a specified context and so I think it most probably originated from someone in that organisation like Dr. Silkwood or Bill Wilson, possibly as far back as the 1930’s.

    “and his military advisors”

    See, that’s where your argument falls apart, Kayla; you should have just left that out. The judge was presented with absolutely no evidence that supported that, and it’s doubtful the administration even claimed it. What is it? Has the lying become just too easy?

    Roy honey, if you want to enforce biblical law, ya’ might lose a tax deduction:

    Deuteronomy 21:18-21
    “If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and, though they discipline him, will not listen to them, then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city at the gate of the place where he lives, and they shall say to the elders of his city, ‘This our son is stubborn and rebellious; he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard.’ Then all the men of the city shall stone him to death with stones. So you shall purge the evil from your midst, and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

    Judicial arrogance is the multiple arrests and lawlessness of Roy boys’s son and the fact that he isn’t in jail for life. That judge is lawless.

  • The_Wretched

    Moore really hates the equal protection of the laws and substantive due process. Those 2 ideas are the core of the 14th Amendment. Amendments 13, 14 and 15 were the result of the Civil War and the reordering of the US Constitution (i.e. LAW) to account for the end of slavery.

  • If they want to talk about arrogance, let’s talk about arrogance. Moore was kicked off the Court twice because he “knew better” than the federal courts. That is the near definition of arrogance.

  • Paula

    That picture of him has always made me wonder about something. His Wikipedia entry shows that he was an officer in the Military Police in the Army. I don’t know if anyone else here has been an Army officer. It was general knowledge that the officers assigned to MPs were below average. Not only that, he graduated from West Point and was made an MP officer. That is really a bad thing. Essentially he was a loser and they had to put him somewhere.
    If anyone was an MP officer, sorry to offend you.

    • jmax

      My father says that when he was stationed in Panama, they had everyone sign paperwork when they got off the troop ship. Those who couldn’t sign their names were made MPs.
      Edited to add: My grandfather was an MP and I can testify the man could barely scratch his name in the dirt with a stick.

      My uncle was an Army Intelligence Officer in charge of base security who retired at Colonel. Two weeks before he was to ship out from his second tour of Vietnam, he was sent on a field reconnaissance mission on which he developed PTSD that he was diagnosed as having a 70% disability because of it. How many officers above lieutenant are sent on field reconnaissance missions if they’re not also Special Forces?

      • Paula

        They may have really been trying to do some real intelligence work on that mission.🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️
        That’s why a Lt. was sent instead of a Captain or Major. There’s real shootin’ out there!

    Bullshit, asshole. It was the shitgibbon’s position and the position of bigots like you. It was not the position of the heads of the branches. Here’s what they have to stay.

    MARINE POSITION ON TRANSGENDERED SERVICE.
    “No otherwise qualified Marine may be separated, discharged, or denied re-enlistment or continuation solely on the basis of their gender identity,” wrote Lt. Gen Mark Brilakis, the Deputy Commandant for Manpower and Reserve Affairs wrote in Marine Corps Bulletin 1121. 

    “All Marines will continue to treat each other with dignity and respect. There is zero tolerance for harassing, hazing, or bullying in any form.”

    NAVY POSITION ON TRANSGENDER SERVICE
    Navy Secretary Richard Spencer breaks with President over the President’s intention to ban transgender individuals from serving in the US military.
    Asked about Trump’s transgender ban, Spencer said Thursday he would carry out any order given — but added that he believed “any patriot” who wanted to serve in the military should be able to do so.

    AIR FIRCE POSITION ON TRANSGENDER SERVICE
    The Air Force publicly released its guidance for how the service will incorporate transgender airmen into its ranks.

    “Transgender airmen serve alongside us with integrity, service and excellence,” Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James said in a news release announcing the guidance. “This is another step in allowing transgender airmen to serve openly, receive medical care relating to gender transition and allow transgender individuals to join the Air Force. Our strengths as a military are the quality and character of our people, and those things that make us unique are the same things that make us strong.”

    COAST GUARD POSITION ON TRANSGENDER SERVICE
    Coast Guard officials reached out personally to their transgender service members to express support after President Trump’s announcement of a new policy barring transgender people in the military, according to Commandant Adm. Paul Zukunft.
    “The first thing we did is we reached out to all 13 members of the Coast Guard who have come out” as transgender, Zukunft told attendees at a Center for Strategic and International Studies event in Washington.
    Zukunft said he contacted Lt. Taylor Miller, the Coast Guard’s first openly transitioning officer who was featured in a Washington Post article last week.
    “If you read that story, Taylor’s family has disowned her. … And I told Taylor, I will not turn my back. We have made an investment in you and you have made an investment in the Coast Guard and I will not break faith,” Zukunft said.

    “And so that was the commitment to our people right now. Very small numbers, but all of them are doing meaningful Coast Guard work today.”

  • Terry

    “The goal of the military is to win wars” Is the same tagline they used to stop gays from serving openly…it’s the same old arguments over and over again.

    We have trans people willing to serve and a person in the highest office who dodged telling other people they shouldn’t be able to serve

    Let that sink in
