Who was the biggest 2nd amendment gun advocate on the Supreme Court. Scalia! Who was the loosest of cannons on the Supreme Court (a court in Wash. D.C. beholden to no country and only Congress, who oversees Wash. D.C. (a private corporation), who selects the President, in a separate City-State out of control of the people, citizens, residents, etc. of the United States of America. (does anyone even know how Wash. D.C. got its name (here)?
Questions as to how he was found dead.
MARFA — 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 were reporting Sunday was a heart attack.
We discovered the judge in bed, a pillow over his head. His bed clothes were unwrinkled,” said Poindexter.
“He was lying very restfully. It looked like he had not quite awakened from a nap,” he said.
Scalia,79, did not have a pulse and his body was cold, and after consulting with a doctor at a hospital in Alpine, Poindexter concluded resuscitation would have been futile, He then contacted federal authorities, at first encountering a series of answering services because he was calling on a weekend.
“Ultimately they became available and handled it t superbly. They flew in by helicopter. They told me to secure the ranch, which I did until this morning,” he said. (source)
And just last month Hilary Clinton opined in public:
Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has said it would be “a great idea” to nominate President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court after he leaves office. With the death Saturday of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, will that support turn into a possibility?
Asked at a campaign event in Iowa last month about a post-presidency post for her former boss, Clinton said: “Nobody has ever suggested that to me. Wow. I love that. … He may have a few other things to do, but I tell you, that’s a great idea.” She added: “we need new justices who actually understand the challenges we face,” reported The New York Times. Clinton speculated about whether “some justices made decisions based on ‘naïveté.’ ”
Clinton was herself the subject of Supreme Court speculation eight years ago. Former adviser David Axelrod confirmed in his memoir that President Obama considered appointing Clinton to the nation’s highest court after beating her in the 2008 primary.
Would Obama nominate her during the 2016 campaign and give her a graceful exit from presidential politics? And is there any chance Senate Republicans would confirm her — if only to get her out of the race?
