‘Natural causes.’ Really?

I have become extremely sceptical of all that takes places in modern culture and am thus looking at the sudden death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia with more than a hint of suspicion. How convenient that one of the most conservative members of the Supreme Court, the one that’s been an open sore to the Obama administration throughout its tenure, just lies down and dies, thus creating a vacancy on the court that could have ramifications for America’s future too depressing to contemplate.

What’s more, the decision by Texas judge Cinderela Guevara that an independent autopsy was ‘unnecessary’ stinks to high heaven, given what’s at stake

It’s a scenario straight out of a John le Carré novel: A sitting president in his final days trying desperately to create a lasting legacy, one that fulfills his promise of the “fundamental transformation of America,” manages to keep that promise by filling the unexpected vacancy on the court by appointing a justice that forever changes the balance between conservative and liberal interpretations of American jurisprudence.

And true to form the Obamites jumped on this opportunity with both feet. The first words coming from the administration after the obligatory expressions of sadness was a declaration of a Democrat Senate Resolution to the contrary, Obama was preparing to name a new justice to the Court ‘in due course. At the top of his short list is the name Sri Srinivasan, a justice department functionary whose political views make Ruth Bader Ginsberg look like a right-wing kook.

 

One would think that any presidential administration would stay as far away as possible from anything that might remotely smell like skulduggery. But the Obama Administration, whose devotion to the Alinskyite concept that the end justifies the means, would have no such compunction. Additionally, the three main elements of murder i.e. means, motive and opportunity, are clearly in play.

Overthrow the Judicial Dictatorship

Accuracy in Media

Commentators have missed the real significance of Justice Antonin Scalia’s dissent in the gay marriage case. He calls the decision a judicial “Putsch,” an attempt to overthrow a form of government—ours. His dissent, joined by Justice Clarence Thomas, was written “to call attention to this Court’s threat to American democracy.”

His comment about the Court using the kind of reasoning we find in a fortune cookie is a funny line. But there is much of the Scalia dissent that is not funny and which serves as a warning to the American people about what the Court has done to us.

Scalia understands the power and meaning of words and he chose the word “putsch” for a specific purpose. One definition of the term means “a secretly plotted and suddenly executed attempt to overthrow a government…” Another definition is “a plotted revolt or attempt to overthrow a government, especially one that depends upon suddenness and speed.”

Hence, Scalia is saying this was not only a blatant power grab and the creation of a “right” that does not exist, but a decision that depends on public ignorance about what is really taking place. It is our system of checks and balances and self-rule that has been undermined, he says.

Justice Antonin Scalia Says World War II-Style Internment Camps Could Happen Again

GITMO

Didn’t Barry say he was going to close GITMO? Wonder which groups are targeted for internment, will the decision be made by a low level staffer?

Justice Antonin Scalia predicts that the Supreme Court will eventually authorize another a wartime abuse of civil rights such as the internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II. Sign Up for the Politics Today newsletter!

“You are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again,” Scalia told the University of Hawaii law school while discussing Korematsu v. United States, the ruling in which the court gave its imprimatur to the internment camps.

The local Associated Press report quotes Scalia as using a Latin phrase that means “in times of war, the laws fall silent,” to explain why the court erred in that decision and will do so again.

“That’s what was going on — the panic about the war and the invasion of the Pacific and whatnot,” Scalia said. “That’s what happens. It was wrong, but I would not be surprised to see it happen again, in time of war. It’s no justification but it is the reality.”
