I was stunned, completely immobile, when I head the announcement of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s death, yesterday evening. As I laid down the book I was reading, certain words being spoken were setting off alarms in my ever-so-inquisitive mind.

A secluded ranch … found alone in his room … not feeling well after dinner … his untimely death … died of natural causes.

With every word, it was beginning to sound more and more like a political thriller written by Frederick Forsyth or Jeffrey Archer. But, this wasn’t a chapter out of a bestselling novel; this was real life … and death.

Certainly, the location and circumstances could bring speculation to most right-brains like me … but it was the word … untimely … that had me thinking that … perhaps … this really is about time. Not untimely … but timing.

Justice Scalia was a textualist and an originalist, when it came to our U.S. Constitution. His individual decisions in landmark cases were based on the written word of the Constitution … and … the social temperament of the people, at the time it was written, not the social temperament of today. He was indeed, the most Conservative Supreme Court Justice sitting on the bench. At an age of only 79 years (not old by Supreme Court Justice standards) he had many more years ahead of him to make a difference in the outcome of landmark decisions. He would have been sitting on the bench as a new Republican President and administration, in theory, came into power.

And then … suddenly … Supreme Court Justice Scalia is found dead, in his room … at a secluded ranch. The last I heard is that his death was not caused by a heart attack … but that he died of natural causes. And so, speculation still builds. Just what is the “natural causes” from which he died?

I cannot speak for his family, but, I hope that there will be an autopsy. In fact, I believe that any high official of his stature, with similar circumstances … should be autopsied. It should be a requirement.

I can hear the “gasps” and people calling me Conspiracy Theorist. But, perhaps it’s time we woke up and realized that we live in a much darker world than we perceive. In fact, autopsies in cases like Supreme Court Justice Scalia would put conspiracy theories to rest.

And, now the “timing” thing. As I mentioned earlier … Justice Scalia was the most conservative of the nine sitting Justices. There is a very good possibility that a Republican will be elected in November. And, with this new President, will come a Republican administration … that is hell-bent on annihilating everything thing in sight that has Obama’s hand-prints on it.

While, the very real probability of a Republican President being elected in November doesn’t change. The social temperament of America now has a huge opportunity to slide, even more so, into a deep dark abyss of Liberalism.

If Obama appoints a new Supreme Court Justice and the Senate confirms that nomination, then the hope of putting America back on the Conservative, God Loving, flag waving … road to recovery … will be made extremely difficult. There is no doubt that Obama will appoint someone who will not only continue to carry the torch of “American desecration”, that person will have a life-time in which to carry that torch and to sway every landmark decision that comes into the Supreme Court to a Liberal decision.

How convenient for Obama, to … within just 11 months left … be given the opportunity to put this very real scenario in motion.

It was a secluded ranch, he was found dead, alone, in his room. He had retired early because he mentioned that he “wasn’t feeling well” … just … after … dinner.

Just what were the “natural causes”? I would hope that this was a death caused by natural causes and not by some kind of premeditated poisoning for, for murky political reasons. Hopefully this government and those “in the shadows” have not sunk so low.

There is no doubt, however, that … with the death of the most conservative Supreme Court Justice in American history … if Obama gets the opportunity … our U.S. Constitution will be poisoned beyond recognition, and will die a very slow death.

  1. Just after hearing about justice scalia’s death, I got to thinking about the last few cases that obama lost. I am sure he was upset. It seems like the perfect solution for obama administration. If he can nominate someone, very liberal, communist perhaps in scalia’s place, he can have all of the rest of his agenda, (he can have the 1st, 2nd amendment struck out of the constitution. Have guns banned. Flood the nation with illegal immigrants, which that case is coming up in the court). I do not put anything past this administration. With this appointment he could have a socialist/communist
    government in place and have a 3rd term before ever having an election. We have got the most corrupt congress,he should have been impeached yrs. ago.

  2. We’ve lost a strong, conservative voice that worked to stem the growth of the demo-socialist-commie rule. Although I hadn’t put on my tin foil hat, as yet, there may be reason for concern. I, too, wonder if an autopsy will be performed. Given the present circumstances, anyone have any trust that the public would be told the truth, regardless of the findings?

    The news chatter from Republicans in power want us to believe that they will not approve an Obama appointment to replace Scalia in the next 11 months. We can hope, but the action, or rather inaction, of the GOP leaves me to believe otherwise…lots of promises that never come to fruition. With liberals promoting the idea of Obama as the next member of the SCOTUS, we should be praying like never before!

    • Thank you for your response, Debbie. Yes, we should be praying unlike ever before … and those Republicans in power need to fight harder than they have ever fought before. Although, I wonder if that requires raising the bar by very much.
