I just happened to be surfing the net when I came upon A short Bio of Clif Moore. It states that he received his MA and PhD from Kennedy Western University. Well, curiosity got the best of me and I Googled Kennedy-Western University. Some of you just might be shocked to see this is not an accredited school. It is now out of business because even after changing names it still could not get accredited. All this college ever was is a diploma mill. Kennedy-Western University, which describes itself like so:
Since 1984 Kennedy-Western University (KWU) has provided distance and online degree programs to over 30,000 students. KWU is one of the largest non-accredited online universities in the United States....
Ah, the magic word: "non-accredited". Translation: "Bogus".
But hey, being non-accredited can't be all bad, right? After all, KWU seems to be proud of the fact that it isn't accredited.
Read on:
Three of four of its faculty of 140 credentialed professors - who are simultaneously employed by major traditional universities throughout the country - hold Ph.D. degrees from accredited universities.
Oops, they're undermining their own statement. Isn't it kind of suspicious that they are bragging that their faculty is so good, they got their degrees from real universities (unlike this one)?
Check out this link. This is very interesting. I think the good doctor should provide the county with a transcript from Kennedy-Western University.

Moore's Ph.D. from the unaccredited school is as bogus as he is. What a big liar and fake he has always been and continues to be. When will everyone finally see Moore for what he is?

No. KWU was an unaccredited paper mill school that handed out unaccredited Ph.Ds to almost anyone who was willing to pay and write a thesis. It was a joke in the education world.

I did not mention the BA because that school is not in question. We all know that is an accredited college. If you had read the link I left you would have seen that This is nothing but a diploma mill. Anyone could pay a one time fee and get a piece of paper stating they have a MA or PhD. Here is another link that you can go to. If you can read you will be able to comprehend what is being said here. There is not a campus to satellite off from. Like I said, send and get a certified copy of his grade transcript and prove me wrong. I'll admit I am wrong if Clif Moore can produce a certified transcript and take it unsealed to the county clerks office for validation. If he can do that I will easily admit I am wrong. http://www.ripoffreport.com/Kennedy-Western-U...

This is just so funny. I have gone through and read these links, plus some I found on my own, and I have laughed so hard. No where but McDowell County could you get a mail order delegate. Mr. Moore's first official act was to call my husband up and tell him that he was taking all the cell phones in the county, with the exception of 2 or 3. His lie to him was he had a fear with coal businesses dropping the coal severance paid to the county would decrease and they needed to cut expenses. Well naturally, that was a lie too. They only disconnected Sid and Gary Day's phones, plus a few that had belonged to former employees. The only problem with them cutting off Sid's phone is I really do not know how they are ever going to contact Sid outside the office. I guess there will only be a prosecutor from 9a to 5p. I am not going to take county calls on the phone at home. I have to have that phone clear at all times because I have family that might need to contact me. I guess after 5p they will have to call Judy, Ray or Clif. I am not giving out our cell phone numbers either. Oh and for all of you who were at meetings where Ray and Judy turned in their cell phones because they did not want the county to pay for theirs. Well, a few days later they went and asked for their phones back. That looked real good in public. I have just really been sickened by all these juvenile actions by the county commission. I have just totally lost all respect for all the people involved in this mess. We live in a country where we are supposed to be able to vote and have freedom of speech, without having to fear any retaliation. Well, all this sure smacks in the face all that our men and woman have fraught and died for. I have always thought very highly of Mike and I had always considered France to be my friend, but boy was I wrong. I have told Sid to just ignore them and never stoop to the level some of these people have to get back at someone over politics. He is just bidding his time until this term is over and then we can leave this whole mess behind us and be able to be near our families. One thing that I will say though, is I know they will never find anyone to take his place and to serve the people of this county any better than Sid has done....

....He has taken calls while we have been on vacation and he works everyday. I get mad sometimes because he will not take time off. All the prosecutors he worked under did not do this. They basically did administrative duties and seldom went to court. Sid really cares what happens in the cases he handles. He feels like he owes it to the people of this county to do the best that he can do and I know he always prays before a trial and asks God to guide what happens in that courtroom, because God is the only one who really knows what happened. He is now being hindered in trying to do his job. I guess some people do not care about crime and corruption. Sid and I have always loved this county and the people in it, and there are still a lot of good people left here, but there is just nothing left here for us. A job is not worth having if you have to come to work everyday to fight. The next thing they will do is to take the vehicle from him and I cannot wait. I have told him repeatedly to take that piece of crap vehicle and drive it up someone’s behind. I would have done it a long time ago if it had been left up to me. I know there will be all their little cronies jumping on here and making all their little smart remarks, but nothing they could say would ever bother me. I am also not afraid to sign my name to my post. I am not a coward. I do not hide behind a computer or the skirt tail of someone. I know what kind of life we live and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt; Sid Bell is one of the finest people this world has to offer. Like I have said before, he is a ten times better person than me. He would never talk down to and try to humiliate people like some people do. Neither would he ever try to bully someone. So now, Mr. Moore appears to be as bogus as the lie he told when he called to tell Sid about the phone. Oh, and he also told Sid that he would see about keeping his on. He would talk to Judy and Ray. Again, that was a lie. He knew they were only disconnecting Sid and Gary Day's phone. So what purpose did it serve for him to tell Sid he would see about keeping it on? You know why? He is a fake. If you are going to do something at least have the balls to stand up and admit it. Just say it is for political retaliation and get it over with. I really am glad that some people are not afraid to bring things to light. I could care less about his degrees, but I have always lived my life by what goes around, comes around. So I guess we will all just sit back and see. I will keep all of this in my prayers. God Bless to all the good people of this county.

But ther point is he graduated from WVSC, which is an accredited school... Which in turn had classes from KWU offered at that time...
But still as you say them degrees wouldn't matter much where KWU is non-exist and non-accredited school...
So WVSC is out of the question.
But KWU is questionable???

I agree. Sid Bell is a good, honest official. That's why Nozzle Nose Judy Courtalesi and Lying Ray hate him. He's got their number and the 2 dirty commissioners hate him for it. Hang in there, Dreama and family.

Exactly, you do get it. I owe you an apology. I have read a lot of your posts and I have seen in some o them what you were saying it is just that you go the long way around a question with your answer. Does that make sense? Any way I do understand what you are saying and you are right.

Thanks so much. Sid is a very good and honest, God fearing man. He lives his religion, he does not have to go around telling everyone that he is a God fearing person. Even the DOC has commented on how he does not care who is around he will still take time out to pray and ask God's direction in what he does. We are going to hang in there for a few more years. We have to, because we have Casey to raise. It is not just me and him to think about. We have this little nine year old here who thinks her Pa walks on water and she will tell you that when she was born Pa prayed her all better (just forget that I was the one staying at the hospital with her). Every decision we make effects her so that is why we have to stay a few more years. Of course, I will probably be in the unemployment line behind Jennifer and Cathy. That will be ok too. God will take care of us some how.

I like Cliff Moore, but since you brought to light His Phd being from a nonaccredited school,It really questions me to call him Dr. Cliff Moore anymore. I still support him for the meantime,though and will still call him that out of habit, but that was some good investigation, I always wondered where Kennedy-Western was located. I think I'm going to have to watch his actions much more now.

Well, we can stop calling him Dr Moore??? I guess, but does he have any honorary Doctorates???
Anyhow we can call him Specialist Moore, Assocaiate Moore, or Bacholer Moore??? Anyway you look at it he's the fallguy for McDowell county and Southern WV...
But I still do have the up most respect for him, but his degrees not be ligit should be addressed by him and the schools that he attended namely WVSC now WVSU!!!
