A first-time guest to the Cibolo Creek Creek Ranch, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was animated and engaged during dinner Friday night, as one of three dozen invitees to an event that had nothing to do with law or politics, according to the ranch owner.
Just hours later, he would be found dead of apparent natural causes, which media outlets reported on Sunday was a heart attack.
“He was seated near me and I had a chance to observe him. He was very entertaining. But about 9 p.m. he said, ‘it’s been a long day and a long week, I want to get some sleep,” recalled Houston businessman John Poindexter, who owns the 30,000-acre luxury ranch.
When Poindexter tried to awaken Scalia about 8:30 the next morning, the judge’s door was locked and he did not answer. Three hours later, Poindexter returned after an outing, with a friend of Scalia who had come from Washington with him.
“We discovered the judge in bed, a pillow over his head. His bed clothes were unwrinkled,” said Poindexter.
The most conservative, Constitutionally-adherent Supreme Court Justice has passed away, in his sleep, after a night of celebratory festivities, during a hunting trip in West Texas.
Let’s be purely objective: at 79-years-old, he was the longest-serving Justice. He was overweight. It is being reported that he died of natural causes. Fair enough.
Let’s also not be complacently naive: Scalia was the Supreme Court’s staunchest opponent to the progressive agenda. He demolished last summer’s gay marriage ruling in a scathing 9-page dissent, admonishing the court for trampling individual states’ rights and its non-representative make-up, stating –
“Take, for example, this Court, which consists of only nine men and women, all of them successful lawyers who studied at Harvard or Yale Law School. Four of the nine are natives of New York City. Eight of them grew up in east-and west-coast States. Only one hails from the vast expanse in-between.”
One need only examine how the ultra-liberal Los Angeles Times derisively covered Scalia’s passing to understand the enmity with which anti-constitutional progressives viewed him.
“…inside the court, his rigid style of conservatism and derisive jabs directed at his colleagues limited his effectiveness. Scalia himself seemed to relish the role of the angry dissenter.
As a justice, he was the leading advocate for interpreting the Constitution by its original words and meaning, and not in line with contemporary thinking. He said he liked a ‘dead Constitution,’ not a ‘living’ one that evolves with the times.”
And please set aside the time to ingest initial reactions from the most rabid communist animals on the planet, as chronicled at Breitbart News.
It should not be overlooked that Barack Obama’s climate change agenda, in direct collusion with the United Nations’ recent COP 21 agreements in Paris, was blocked in a 5-4 vote by the Supreme Court – just a few days ago.
The Hill previously reported on the Supremes’ decision in succinct terms that clearly define its importance to the Obama cabal, United Nations, and two biggest ‘global warming’ liars in the presidential race.
“The court granted the request in a 5-4 vote on Tuesday night, saying the rule was on hold until the circuit court reviews it and Supreme Court appeals are exhausted. The court’s four liberal justices dissented from the decision.
The rule — the Clean Power Plan — is the main plank of Obama’s climate change agenda. It’s designed to cut carbon pollution from the electricity sector by 32 percent over 2005 levels by 2030 by assigning states individual reduction targets based on their energy mix.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement that the administration disagrees with the order, but ‘we remain confident that we will prevail’ when the rule is argued on its merits.
A senior administration official downplayed the decision, calling it ‘a temporary procedural determination that does nothing to affect first our confidence in the legal soundness of this rule.’ Another official said the White House is ‘very surprised’ by the decision, but has ‘complete confidence that the rule is lawful.’
The stay means Obama will likely leave office with the fate of his premier climate policy undecided.
The circuit court plans to hear arguments on the rule in June, meaning the Supreme Court probably won’t get a chance to hear or rule on the regulation until after Obama’s term ends in January.
It also elevates the Clean Power Plan’s status as a major issue in the presidential election.
Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have pledged to protect the rule — and expand on Obama’s climate work — if elected in November, while Republican candidates have been openly hostile to both the power plant rule and federal climate regulations in general.
Obama, bullish on the rule’s legality in the face of certain lawsuits, took the plan with him to Paris last year for a major climate conference focused on carbon reduction. The Clean Power Plan is the centerpiece of the American commitment to the agreement reached there.”
It has become flagrantly apparent that the Obama administration is a coterie of gangsters and criminals of the highest, most sophisticated degree. We should not blindly accept such a tragic, radical alteration of the protection of our Constitutionally-guaranteed rights to the State without a healthy dose of forthright, critical thought.
We’ve all looked to Obama’s ‘final’ year in the White House with trepidation, wondering what extreme stunts he would pull – why should we rule anything out? Let’s not be complacent at this pivotal moment in our nation’s future. Hitler’s ‘Night of the Long Knives’ just happened to be a more ‘public’ and comprehensive elimination of dissent.
May the Honorable Justice Antonin Scalia rest in peace, with prayers and healing be with his family at this time.
