Breaking: U.S. Supreme Court Justice Scalia Dead

Antonin_Scalia_official_SCOTUS_portraitI’ve just learned that one of our best U.S. Supreme Court Justices, Antonin Scalia, was found dead of natural causes today.

From MySanAntonio:

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.

It cannot be overstated how bad this news is. I feel bad for Scalia’s family for certain. But I feel bad for the country even more, because it falls within the purview of the anti-American Marxist in the White House to nominate a replacement for him..and it was already a mostly 6-3 anti-American court as it was.

I kid you not: the Senate should absolutely refuse to confirm ANY Supreme Court nominee offered by Barack Obama for the next 11 months. He can make a recess appointment when congress goes into recess, but recess appointments must be approved by the Senate by the end of the next session of Congress, or the position becomes vacant again.

If the Senate has the (insert strength-signifying anatomy here) to do this, we will have an anti-American in Scalia’s position for a few months, but a Republican president (Ted Cruz, God help us?) could appoint a constitutional justice next year. America is already reeling; we cannot afford any more assaults on the Constitution and the rule of law like we’ve seen in the past few years.

If Barack Obama is allowed to install another Constitution-hating, liberty-loathing Leftist on the Supreme Court, the American way will be in jeopardy for years, and a good SCOTUS seat will be filled with evil for years if not decades to come.

This is one to go to the mat for, folks, and I’m not kidding. The future of our republic now hangs in the balance. No exaggeration, no hyperbole, and no kidding.

UPDATE: “Justice Scalia was an American hero. We owe it to him, & the Nation, for the Senate to ensure that the next President names his replacement.” – Ted Cruz

And even the feckless turtle…

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Saturday that the Senate should wait until a new president is elected to confirm a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia. – RedState

    The press was awfully quick to declare “natural causes” without ANY evidence. What we don’t yet know is the cause of death, but like most things these days, the eneMedia declares the “facts” before all the evidence is even in.

    I’m highly suspicious, as Scalia was in decent to excellent health and, to anyone’s knowledge, he had no compromising health conditions, at least none that would prevent him from taking this outing.

    Regardless, it was an UNATTENDED DEATH, and the media is derelict in coming to ANY conclusions regarding the cause this quickly.
