Exclusive: Joseph Farah advises Trump against nominating 'establishment hack'
Joseph Farrah of Worldnetdaily says, in part:
Let's hope the reports Donald Trump has his nominee to replace Justice Antonin Scalia down to two choices - Judge William H. Pryor of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit and Judge Diane Sykes of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals - represent nothing more than "fake news."
I don't know much about Sykes. Therefore, I have no reason to oppose her nomination, though I would much prefer someone whose record is clearly "Scalia-like." Sen. Mike Lee comes to mind.
But I can tell you without equivocation that Pryor is an establishment hack - more in the John Roberts mode than Scalia.
Let's go back to 2003 when, as Alabama state attorney general, he prosecuted the state's Supreme Court chief justice, Judge Roy Moore, for following the dictates of his conscience in upholding the inspiration of the Ten Commandments, the very foundation of our moral law, thus removing him from office.
The charge was violating judicial ethics, an accusation from a radical-left organization.
Moore had broken no laws in the state of Alabama or the United States of America. He had faithfully upheld his oath to the constitutions or Alabama and the U.S. Instead, he had defied an illegal injunction by a federal judge, Myron Thompson, to remove a Ten Commandments display.
Submitting to such a demand would not be following the rule of law; it would have been be succumbing to the rule of men..................
Does anyone, Donald Trump included, think Antonin Scalia would hold that Judge Roy Moore should have been removed from office for displaying the Ten Commandments?
If not, then we should agree that the man who prosecuted Roy Moore for defying that illegal federal court order as a judicial ethics violation is hardly worthy of replacing him on the high court.
