WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Without question, President Trump has assembled an excellent list of potential Supreme Court nominees but William Pryor stands out, according to the Judicial Selection Strike Force Coalition's (JSSFC) who gives him its highest rating.
Among other attributes and accomplishments, the coalition said Pryor has correctly identified Roe v. Wade as the raw act of judicial tyranny that it is and properly described the decision as an "abomination." Ironically, this also squares with the assessment of liberal constitutional law professor Alan Dershowitz.
Pryor currently sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and is an exceptional candidate for proponents of a restrained judiciary, which enforces the rule of law rather than legislatives it from the bench. He's a committed member of the Federalist Society, and, in the mold of the late Justice Antonin Scalia, believes that the Constitution should be interpreted based on its original meaning not the meaning created in the mind of judges and in the illegitimate "penumbras and emanations" of the Constitution.
"I am a conservative, and I believe in the strict separation of governmental powers," Pryor wrote in 1997 when he was attorney general of Alabama. "Courts should not resolve political problems" and the JSSFC "wholeheartedly agrees."
"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican controlled U.S. Senate should not hesitate to use the "nuclear option," if necessary, to confirm Pryor or any nominee, because a restrained and law abiding judiciary is an essential component of self-government and to the liberty of the American people.
"Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has vowed to block any Trump appointment, and thus its time to play hardball," said Larry Klayman, the founder of both Judicial Watch and now Freedom Watch and the chairman of this Judicial Selection Strike Force Coalition.
"William Pryor would be an extraordinary nominee and JSSFC gives him our highest rating and recommendation," said Klayman.
