A Supreme Court justice is found dead with a pillow over his face, in unwrinkled pajamas, after his security detail is told to stand down, coincidentally in a county where the cause of death can be legally pronounced on the scene, and no autopsy is then required, and the judge pronounced him dead of natural causes OVER THE PHONE.
If you want to fuel conspiracy theories, this is the way to do it. Even though this is all conveniently legal because of Texas law, this is the first time I can remember the federal government NOT pushing to investigate to the max extent possible the death of one of their own.
Republicans in control of the House and the Senate, two crappy candidates for the democrats, Obama’s “fundamental transformation” stalled, and the only way to advance it being through the courts… Yes, there’s a possibility that someone connected to Obama had Scalia killed, and the circumstances surrounding his death just open the door to these theories.
Have someone independently do one or more autopsies, just like they did for a simple street thug like Mike Brown. They brought in coroners from the local, state, federal, and military sources to do autopsies on Brown to quell a LOCAL disturbance. The death of Scalia has NATIONAL implications. Shouldn’t we have the same due diligence in investigating the death of a pivotal Supreme Court justice?
Oh, by the way, the senate doesn’t owe Obama a vote or confirmation of his nominees to the court. The same democrats who are whining most loudly about this are the same ones who obstructed EVERY Republican sponsored bill (Harry Reid), and also refused to bring up any George W. Bush nominee in the last year of HIS presidency (Chuck Schumer). So, if they don’t like it, tough. It’s time the Republicans start fighting as hard to protect our Constitution and nation as the democrats fight to destroy them.
Listen to Chuck Schumer decrying “judicial activism” in his own words. He doesn’t mind it when it’s a LIBERAL judge legislating from the bench.
New York Sen. Charles E. Schumer, a powerful member of the Democratic leadership, said Friday the Senate should not confirm another U.S. Supreme Court nominee under President Bush “except in extraordinary circumstances.”
Update: More info
“For the rest of this president’s term and if there is another Republican elected with the same selection criteria let me say this: We should reverse the presumption of confirmation. The Supreme Court is dangerously out of balance. We cannot afford to see Justice Stevens replaced by another Roberts, or Justice Ginsburg by another Alito. Given the track record of this president and the experience of obfuscation at the hearings—with respect to the Supreme Court, at least—I will recommend to my colleagues that we should not confirm a Supreme Court nominee except in extraordinary circumstances.”
