    Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of apparent natural causes Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.
    Scalia, 79, was a guest at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, a resort in the Big Bend region south of Marfa.
    According to a report, Scalia arrived at the ranch on Friday and attended a private party with about 40 people. When he did not appear for breakfast, a person associated with the ranch went to his room and found a body.
    Chief U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia, of the Western Judicial District of Texas, was notified about the death from the U.S. Marshals Service.  
    U.S. District Judge Fred Biery said he was among those notified about Scalia's death.

    "I was told it was this morning," Biery said of Scalia's death. "It happened on a ranch out near Marfa. As far as the details, I think it's pretty vague right now as to how," he said. "My reaction is it's very unfortunate. It's unfortunate with any death, and politically in the presidential cycle we're in, my educated guess is nothing will happen before the next president is elected."
    The U.S. Marshal Service, the Presidio County sheriff and the FBI were involved in the investigation.
    Officials with the law enforcement agencies declined to comment.
    A federal official who asked not to be named said there was no evidence of foul play and it appeared that Scalia died of natural causes.

    A gray Cadillac hearse pulled into the ranch last Saturday afternoon. The hearse came from Alpine Memorial Funeral Home.
    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott released a statement Saturday afternoon, calling Scalia a man of God, a patriot and an "unwavering defender of the written Constitution."
    "He was the solid rock who turned away so many attempts to depart from and distort the Constitution," Abbott said. "We mourn his passing, and we pray that his successor on the Supreme Court will take his place as a champion for the written Constitution and the Rule of Law. Cecilia and I extend our deepest condolences to his family, and we will keep them in our thoughts and prayers."
    Scalia was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan.
    Staff writers Vianna Davila, Tyler White and Richard A. Marini, John MacCormack and Guillermo Contreras contributed to this report.

    Man, it's only been an hour since the news broke! Calm down!

    Antonin Scalia was a portly 79 year old man who worked in law - a profession that far more people are leaving than entering because of how stressful it is. It was only a matter of time before he passed on.

  • This has a good summary of the events: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-supreme-court-scalia-dead-20160214-story.html

    The Justice of the Peace seemed very quick to declare (without even seeing his body) that his death was from "natural causes;" another Justice of the Peace said she would've ordered an autopsy. The county judge said his death certificate would say "myocardial infarction" (heart attack), and she pronounced him dead over the phone! The family hasn't requested an autopsy (yet), probably because if it did find foul play, they would be at risk. The host of the hunting trip declined to say who the other 35 guests were. Then Obama said he, and not the next U.S. President, will appoint Scalia's successor. This is all quite suspicious. Scalia is the 2nd Supreme Court justice to die before resigning in 60 years.

    Requiescat in pace.

    (Also, Scalia's son is a priest.)

  • John Poindexter, the ranch owner and host of Scalia's hunting trip, said: "There is no political angle here. It was strictly a group of friends sympathetic to the justice's views." Yet:
    Quote
    He appears to be a modest political donor, with contributions to the Democratic Party, a Democratic political action committee and several Texas Democratic candidates for Senate and Congress, according to Federal Election Commission records. (source)
    Poindexter was also convicted of multiple felonies during the Iran-Contra affair. Reagan fired him from his position of National Security Adviser (source).

    Poindexter also refused to say who the 35 guests were, exactly. He just said they were businessmen, but not into politics.

    This article also mentioned a local priest gave him last rites, Deo gratias (although it might've been too late).

  • I think it is odd that he went on hunting trip by himself instead of going with family or hunting buddies.

  • Leave the Scalia Chair Vacant by Patrick J. Buchanan




    Tuesday - February 16, 2016

     It is a measure of the stature and the significance of Justice Antonin Scalia that, upon the news of his death at a hunting lodge in Texas, Washington was instantly caught up in an unseemly quarrel over who would succeed him.

     But no one can replace Justice Scalia.

     He was a giant among jurists. For a third of a century, he led the conservative wing of the high court, creating a new school of judicial thought called "originalism."

     But originalism is not conservatism, which, in the judicial era that preceded Scalia, often meant court decisions that "conserved" the radical social revolution Earl Warren's court had imposed upon us.

     Scalia believed in going back to the founding documents of the republic and discerning from them the original meaning and intent of the framers.

     He would look at the purpose of the authors of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and post-Civil War amendments, and conclude that it was an absurdity to discover there, or read into them, a constitutional right to have an abortion or to marry someone of the same sex.

     The words Scalia used to ridicule such nonsense did as much to discredit majority opinions as did his dissenting votes.

     I remember being called into the office of White House Chief of Staff Don Regan, 30 years ago, to be informed that the judge whom Ronald Reagan would name to replace William Rehnquist, who had been named Chief Justice, would be U.S. Appellate Court Judge Antonin Scalia.

     Regan was grinning at me as he made the announcement, and I let out of a whoop of victory. Since Nixon days, some of us had argued for naming an Italian Catholic to the high court. Yet, all six of Nixon's nominees, and the only nominee of Gerald Ford, were WASPs.

     Scalia's death removes the court's most brilliant mind and most colorful member. Personable, witty, acerbic, a fine writer, he used his opinions, mostly dissents, not only to make his case but to skewer the majority opinion.

     And while Sen. Mitch McConnell may be faulted for not waiting a decent interval after Scalia's death to declare that the Senate will not confirm any Obama nominee to succeed Scalia, the majority leader's position is exactly the right one for the party.

     Some of us in the Nixon campaign of 1968 still recall how Chief Justice Earl Warren, fearing his old antagonist Richard Nixon might be elected, offered his resignation to LBJ in June of 1968, but contingent on Senate confirmation of a successor.

     The fix was in.

     Johnson nominated Justice Abe Fortas, a crony, to succeed Warren and Judge Homer Thornberry of Texas, another crony, to fill the Fortas seat. Nixon, urged by his old friend William Rogers, Ike's attorney general, stayed out of the battle. Some of us did not.

     Senate Republicans, led by Bob Griffin of Michigan and including John Tower, Howard Baker and Strom Thurmond, held up the vote on Fortas, until they had enough support to sustain a filibuster and run out the clock. In October, Fortas threw in the towel.

     The following spring, President Nixon named U.S. Appellate Court Judge Warren Burger to succeed Earl Warren as chief justice.

     The GOP Senate majority should follow the example of that gutsy Senate Republican minority of half a century ago. The window for any Supreme Court nominees should be slammed shut — until 2017.

     Republicans should tell our "transformative" president that his days of transforming America are over, that he will not be remaking the court into a bastion of the left after his departure, and that, while he has the right to nominate whom he wishes, the U.S. Senate will exercise its right to reject any nominee he sends up. If the court will then face many 4-4 decisions for the next year, so be it.

     Given the divisions on the court and balance of power, and the disposition of liberal justices to impose upon the nation an ideology that would never be embraced democratically, the Republican Party is almost duty-bound to oppose any Obama nominee.

     What kind of Supreme Court do the American people wish to have? That is a question to be decided in 2016 — not by a lame-duck president, but by the American electorate in November.

     Does the nation want an activist judiciary to remake America into a more liberal society, as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor would like to see it remade?

     Or do the American people want a more constitutional court that returns power to the people and their elected representatives?

     Let's have it out.

     Republicans should tell the American people that when they vote in November they will be deciding not only the next president, not only which party shall control Congress, they will be deciding what kind of Supreme Court their country should have. Which is as it should be.

     If the GOP can't win this argument, they have lost the country.

  • Poll: 79% Suspect "Foul Play" in the Death of Antonin Scalia:

    Poll: 79% Suspect “Foul Play” in Death of Antonin Scalia



     

    Facebook VK blogger LiveJournal Twitter Google+ Email Print Share




    A poll conducted by the Conservative Outfitters website finds that 79% of its readers suspect “foul play” was involved in the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

    Over 40,000 people voted in the poll, with nearly eight out of ten thinking there may be a cover-up.

    Questions continue to swirl over the confusing circumstances surrounding Scalia’s death after his body was quickly embalmed following the decision not to conduct an autopsy.

    Although the leftist media has attempted to portray any examination of the narrative about Scalia’s death as crass and insensitive, the same standards seemingly don’t apply when it comes to leftists themselves celebrating the death of the Supreme Court Justice.

    Some of the unanswered questions surrounding Scalia’s death are explored in the video below. They include;

    Why did law enforcement personnel tell Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara that there was no evidence of foul play when Scalia was found alone in his room with a pillow over his head?

    Was the immediate clampdown on any suggestion of foul play an attempt to prevent an autopsy from taking place?

    Why did Guevara initially tell the media Scalia had died of a heart attack before hastily changing her mind and saying he died of natural causes?

    Why did Guevara pronounce that Scalia had died of natural causes without having actually seen the body?

    Why is no autopsy taking place despite Guevara’s confusion as to how Scalia died – a decision disputed by other officials?

    Why was it necessary for no less than 20 police officers to escort Scalia’s dead body to the Sunset Funeral Home in El Paso?

    Why was Scalia’s body quickly embalmed, a process that would destroy toxicology evidence?

  • Scalia attended a conservative parish where a Latin Novus Ordo was said.
    He also said that St. Thomas Aquinas was wrong on some points of law.
    His dissenting opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges didn't even mention natural law, which would've been a much, much stronger argument than what he gave.

    At least Cdl. Burke gets it right when he said in Remaining in the Truth of Christ:
    Quote
    Regarding law, in general, there has developed the notion that the law has no relation to objective truth but is constituted by whatever man, usually the judge, decides.²⁸ Such a theory was proposed in my homeland, the United States of America, already in 1897 by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.²⁹
    Footnote 29 cites the article:
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., The Path of Law.

    Let us pray hard for him, because he was in a difficult position as Supreme Court justice. He also took a (false?) oath to uphold the atheist, Masonic U.S. Constitution, which doesn't even mention God, let alone His Catholic Church.

  • It's a common misconception among Catholics that Scalia was the Supreme Court justice who represents Catholic teaching. From "Why Justice Scalia Disagrees with St. Thomas:"

    "Aquinas also states several times that when equity demands it, judges should depart from the text to vindicate the natural law."

    "In no circumstance is a judge to depart from the text in order to perfect the law, according to Justice Scalia."

    This is Phariseeism!
