    Did Justice Scalia Name His Own Successor a Week Before He Died?

    According to Law Professor Bryan Garner he did. On February 10,2017 Professor Garner revealed to his Advanced Legal Writing Class at Southern Methodist University that a week before his death Justice Scalia claimed that Judge Gorsuch was the best legal writer at the Appellate Court. In fact, Justice Scalia turned down the opportunity to write another book with Garner, because he believed Gorsuch would be a younger, qualified replacement.

    Though Justice Scalia may not have personally anointed Gorsuch, he surely recognized his caliber, capabilities and competence. For anyone who hoped to see a man of Scalia’s stature and beliefs take his place, it seems even Justice Scalia himself could not have picked a better choice than Judge Gorsuch.

    NCPA Statement on Expected Confirmation of Mike Pompeo for CIA Director

    Representative Mike Pompeo, President-elect Trump's nominee to lead the CIA will have a tough task ahead in rebuilding the credibility of one of the most revered institution in the American government. The Obama administration's fecklessness and short-term thinking has so undermined the integrity of the intelligence community that Pompeo will likely spend an inordinate amount of time having to rebuild trust and relationships, both stateside and abroad, rather than immediately improving operational readiness.
