The announcement of the sudden mysterious death of Justice Scalia of the US Supreme Court monopolized the media this weekend. This is only the 2nd time in the past 60 years that an active justice has died. With only 8 members on the Court now, the Constitutional dialogue may grind to a halt for quite some time.

How the death of Justice Scalia affects us

No matter where you stand on the political scale (even if you stand off it entirely), there are some pretty major ramifications when an acting Supreme Court Justice passes away. Not all of these things are guaranteed to happen, but all are within the realm of possibility and important to note to those who were dancing on the grave of Scalia before his body was even cold.

Mac Slavo of SHTFplan wrote a fine article about the derailment of the court that you’ve got to read. These are a few of the important cases pending that will be disrupted due to the death of Justice Scalia:

  • labor unions
  • contraceptives
  • religious liberty
  • Obamacare
  • redistricting, affecting red state/blue state fights for dominance
  • immigration

Equally worrisome to the Court grinding to a halt completely is the possibility that Obama will manage to get a replacement in there that will act to support his unconstitutional executive actions on topics such as freedom of speech, gun control, and privacy.

While I consider myself neither a Republican nor a Democrat (I refuse to endorse the rigged, partisan system) it’s obvious that the balance of power in our country hangs by a thread, and the sudden death of a Supreme Court Justice who is currently on the bench could effectively lock up the government until a replacement is sworn in. And that replacement will set the tone for the country for a very long time. Right now, the remaining Justices are evenly split based on who nominated them: 4 were nominated by Republican presidents and 4 by Democrat presidents. The Justice who is chosen to replace Scalia could change everything.

The Justice who is chosen to replace Scalia could change everything. President Obama has about 340 days remaining in office, and it’s very likely that the Republican-majority Congress will do everything possible to fight his nominations in the hopes that a Republican president is elected. The longest vacancy in the past 100 years was during Richard Nixon’s presidency and lasted 391 days.

And there are a lot of questions about Justice Scalia’s death

The Sudden Death of Justice Scalia and What It Means for America

Let me preface this by pointing out some facts:

Now, obviously none of these facts preclude the possibility that he was murdered, but they do show that it isn’t an outrageous to believe he died of a heart attack. If you apply the theory of Occam’s Razor (“when you have two competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better”), natural causes are indeed the most likely scenario.

But then, you have to add up this ever-growing pile of exceptionally weird inconsistencies.

Pronounced dead over the phone? No autopsy? Already embalmed? WHAT? Things that make you go, hmmmm….right?

Let me say it again…get prepared

At the risk of preaching to the choir, beating a dead horse, and about a dozen other cliches about repeating myself, please let me encourage you to take stock of your preparations and fill in the gaps. This is the kind of thing that could tip over a huge chain of events that will affect us all.

If you’ve been thinking of getting your prepper homestead started, now is the time to focus with single-minded determination on becoming more self-reliant. If you wait until the government is cracking down or the situation is desperate, you may be in for some unpleasant surprises.

I keep ringing this warning bell not just to hear myself talk, but because I really, truly belive that freedom comes with self reliance. Each thing you are able to provide for yourself buys you just a little bit more freedom than the neighbors who are waiting for the government to save them. We’re entering the edge of a perfect storm right now, with the volatile economy, enemies abroad, and now, a government that may be unable to fully function. We are in a situation unlike any we’ve seen before, and no one can predict how things will go down. Hopefully, nothing terrible will happen, but if it does, do you want to look back and think about how you ignored the urging to ramp up your preparations? We could easily end up in a situation like that of Venezuela, where the economy has collapsed and the country is out of food.

What do you think happened in the death of Supreme Court Justice Scalia?

This is could be a turning point for our country, and not one that turns us in the direction of freedom.

Do you have any theories about this sudden (and convenient for President Obama) death? Do you feel that he died of natural causes or something more suspicious?  How long do you expect it to take for a successor to be named and confirmed? How do you foresee this affecting the average person?

  • Pillow over his face? A judge named CINDERELLA? Can’t make up this stupid stuff. Where the hell do you get a MEXICAN named Cinderella?

    BUT WAIT maybe the other side will do the same thing in revenge. Then they all do the same over and over until the only ones left standing is ? Maybe bennie-the-RAT? You can be CERTAIN that the Isralies will be here in the USA doing their work on OUR GENERAL ELECTION.

    Perhaps the super delegates will start passing away? Follow the MONEY!

    Presidio County Judge Cinderella Guevara said she decided not to order an autopsy after Sheriff Danny Dominguez concluded there were no signs of foul play, reported WFAA News in Dallas. The Scalia family concurred.


  • Glad he’s dead, just too late to have avoided Bush v. Gore and Citizens United. He’s at home sucking off Hitler in Hell.

  • This raises many questions…

    Justice Scalia was found dead “with a pillow over his head”, but no autopsy is ordered. The body is sent to funeral home to begin embalming. Death was determined by “natural causes” over the phone, without even seeing the body.

  • All TOP Government officials who die in such a manner SHOULD be subjected to AN AUTOMATIC AUTOPSY. No questions, No objections, No issues.
    Regardless of what the Family’s wishes are.
    Top SCOTUS Official ?
    ANd people do not consider foul play ?

    Are Americans really that Destructively Naive ?
    Or have you all become so compliant and empty headed that your facts are the opinion’s of others ?

  • Miss Daisy,

    Kudos on a most excellent article! That said, please allow me to bring to your attention, another article you might find interesting, per an analysis of a SHTF world and its resultant legacy.

    Yes, I’ve drifted off topic as usual(apologies to you!)…but in a round-about way, the likely murder of A.S., per furthering an agenda by the wicked (via his elimination), eventually dovetails w/ the results envisioned by a friend…

    The author is former SF & a distinguished historian. I know him & would bet my life on his analysis / leadership.
    Yes, his opinions are ‘stark & foreboding’, but then again he’s been deployed to more shitholes on this planet than most folks can begin to understand…

    Enjoy ma’am, ..and may GOD Bless you / R…

  • The story is changing almost by the minute now, just like with 9/11, Sandy Hoax, San Bernardino, Santa Barbara, etc. At first it was said that he was discovered to be dead at 3:30 AM, with a pillow over his head. Then it morphed into he was discovered to be dead when he didn’t come out of his room for lunch the next day and the pillow was above his head, between him and the head board. Until people are brought in for questioning, and rigorous questioning at that, we will never get to the bottom of all this. WHY didn’t he have a U.S. Marshal security detail with him on this trip, like he normally does? Who else was registered there? Are there any security cameras there to show who comes and goes? Do people go there who do not work there and do not stay overnight? Who are those people and what is it that they do there? Just wondering is all.


  • If you are one that believes the Supreme Court is the final arbiter of what is lawful and constitutional, then you have believed a lie and a myth that Jefferson warned about. The States still retain their rights to this day to defy the federal judiciary, which has become an oligarchy. We just need strong statesmen as governors and legislatures to make that stand! The people will get behind those that will take the stand, but we must first seek out those willing to put all they are on the line for the sake of freedom, not necessarily a political future.

    “Perhaps even more disturbing is that the voters who feel strongest about overriding the federal courts – Republicans and conservatives – are those who traditionally have been the most supportive of the Constitution and separation of powers,” reports Rasmussen. “During the Obama years, however, these voters have become increasingly suspicious and even hostile toward the federal government.”

    In writing to William Jarvis, Jefferson said, “You seem . . . to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.”
    The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped.”
