Scalia: Silence of the lambs

Scalia: Silence of the lambs

Outrageous days of federal infamy

“Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was the senior member of the U. S. Supreme Court and one of the 10 most important public servants in the country. For better or worse over the course of his 29 years on the Court, he was arguably the most influential person in America.” — Eric Mink, Huffington Post, 2/17.

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

We start here—from the NY Post, “Scalia could have been poisoned: forensic pathologist”:

“Lethal poisoning could have left Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s body in virtually the same condition in which it was found, a top forensic pathologist told The Post on Wednesday.

“’It would look like he’s asleep. It [poisoning] doesn’t show anything on the body,’ said Dr. Michael Baden, who spent 25 years in the city’s chief Medical Examiner’s Office.

“Still, Baden stressed that natural causes was a plausible explanation.”

However, the official pronouncement of natural causes carries a burden with it. The burden of some semblance of proof. In this case, there was none.

And if you think “none” should be SOP in the case of a US Supreme Court Justice, you need to think again.

Judge Cinderela Guevara, miles away from Scalia’s body, sitting on the phone, rendered the judgment of natural causes after talking with marshals, none of whom had forensic training; and after talking with Scalia’s doctor, who was a few thousand miles from the Texas ranch where Scalia died.

Apparently, Scalia’s doctor told Judge Guevara that Scalia had a heart condition. Yes? And? This is proof a US Supreme Court Justice died of a heart attack?

Guevara, like a true bumbling amateur (or was something more ominous going on here?), decided no autopsy of the body was necessary. She decided she was too busy (doing what?) to climb in her car and drive to the ranch, to oversee the situation and talk to people at the scene.

So she said, on the phone, “Natural causes. No autopsy.”

For a US Supreme Court Justice. In the biggest moment of her professional life.

And the Department of Justice, the FBI, the President, and all the members of US Congress immediately bought it.

No objections. No questions. No outrage.

Just the silence of the lambs.

In a city where blabbermouths never stop talking, suddenly—silence.

Paralysis.

And thereafter: no chain of custody for bodily evidence.

The body of a US Supreme Court Justice wasn’t put on a plane, from the mile-long airstrip at Cibolo Ranch, under supervision, and flown back immediately to Washington DC for analysis. No.

Instead, it was driven to the Sunset Funeral Home in El Paso, 230 miles from the Ranch. It could have been driven 65 miles to the Alpine Memorial Funeral Home in Alpine, but it wasn’t.

At the Sunset Funeral Home in El Paso, it was promptly embalmed—ruling out the possibility of a conventional autopsy. Even then, forensic pathologist Michael Baden states, toxicology tests could be done by sophisticated analysis. According to Wayne Madsen, reporting for Infowars, no bodily fluids were collected at the funeral home for later analysis.

Roughly 10 hours after the embalming, Scalia’s body was loaded on a plane and flown to Virginia, where Scalia’s family lives.

But “most people think Scalia died of natural causes.” That argument, for impaired minds, carries the day. Nothing more to see, nothing more to know.

“Old man, in ill-health, heart condition. He dies. What else could it possibly be? Natural causes.”

As reported by Eric Mink at the Huffington Post (2/17), in an excellent piece titled “17 Questions About Scalia’s Death,” there were 35-40 guests at the Cibolo Ranch on the weekend Scalia died. Who were they? Was this merely a quail-hunting outing? Or was it another kind of get-together?

No word. Silence. Why haven’t any of those guests spoken to the press? Do they know something that would shed a different light on the official story? Are they afraid? Did someone at the federal level throw a blanket over them?

Judge Cinderela Guevara spoke to a lawyer representing the Scalia family. He said the family didn’t want an autopsy. Who is he? Why hasn’t his name surfaced? Since when is a client’s lawyer’s name a secret?

Scalia traveled to the ranch with a friend. No one is saying who the friend is. That’s also a state secret?

Does the Cibolo Ranch have medical personnel on staff? If so, were any of them called when Scalia was discovered dead in his room?

The official narrative is: old man, long-time public servant, dies peacefully in his sleep of natural causes. This is the thin gloss that prevents any Washington politician with clout from demanding an investigation? This quiets and paralyzes the entire federal establishment, including eight Justices of the Supreme Court?

Cowards and lambs.

Not an ounce of conscience among them.

Neutered.


power outside the matrix


In the wake of this titanic silence, the narrative is quickly and expertly shifted to the question of who will replace Scalia on the bench. That’s the certified subject of chatter. Should Obama appoint a nominee, or should nomination wait for the next President? What is the rule? The Republicans cross swords with the Democrats. Precedents are cited. The man isn’t in his grave, and the hangars-on and petty power players are arguing over his successor. It’s a B movie. Pundits prepare talking points, clean their suits, see their hair stylists, and sidle into their minutes of face time on news shows. The shows deliver filler between commercials.

This is the wet concrete that sets over the death of a US Supreme Court Justice.

The man who could have swept aside all objections, and ordered an investigation, visits the flag-covered casket in the Great Hall of the Supreme Court, stands before it for 30 seconds, moves to a painted portrait of the deceased Justice, lingers there for one minute, and then goes home to vet nominees, a herculean task that will unfortunately prevent him from attending the funeral.

Omerta.

    Jon your writings are incredible. Never have I read like this. Regards Tom

  2. middleway says:

    Omerta indeed.

  3. From Québec says:

    I have no doubt in my mind that they killed him.

  4. jetsam2flotsam says:

    As always, the real key question to answer isn’t WHAT HAPPENED to WHO, but WHY?
    Especially when it is someone “on the inside”……

  5. NWO Reporter says:

    Murder, covered up, ruled to be a natural death (or a suicide, or an accident, take your pick)–nothing new under the sun there. The shadow government has a business to run, after all.

    But no need to shed any tears for Scalia. He played with the devil, and Scalia would have agreed that if he was properly sentenced to execution under the devil’s rules, his death would be a fair one. After all, it was he who infamously wrote in his concurring opinion in Herrera v. Collins that actual innocence is no defense to execution after a procedurally sound conviction.

  6. Nikki J says:

    Our world is spinning out of control. We have the daily steady diet of the elections, a killing of a man in Oregon trying to speak for Ranchers and government over-reach, a swat team in Huston Texas arresting a man for default on a student loan, with warrants for 1500 more arrests, groups of people gathering to protest. The president and congress have made things much worse than I have seen in my lifetime. Government agencies going nuts, gathering ammunition and guns to use against citizens. When will all this madness end? Seems the one constant we could count on to follow the Constitution, Justice Scalia has left us in turmoil. Sad. RIP judge Scalia.

  7. From Québec says:

    Obama Cracks Scalia Death Joke

  8. vicki says:

    And people wonder why I don’t trust the law in Presidio County. Too many common sense questions won’t even be answered. Scary and sad.

  9. 'murican says:

    As long as I can still get GMO Cheetos and watch Dancing With The Stars, I don’t care.

  10. anonymous says:

    first, I don’t consider Adm. Brian P. Monahan to be Scalia’s physician. he’s “official” establishment.
    second, “probably” is good enough for Scalia?

    23 Feb – Chicago Tribune – Scalia’s death probably linked to many health problems, doctor says
    The AP filed a records request with the judge last week, but she did not provide the letter or respond to a reporter’s phone message Tuesday. The Texas Department of State Health Services has declined to release a copy of the death certificate….
    Associated Press listed at bottom of the article.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-antonin-scalia-health-20160223-story.html

    following headline is actually the same article as above, minus the two sentences excerpted above(?) but this one has an even more disgusting headline, given no death certificate has yet been seen, etc:

    23 Feb – Dallas Morning News – Official cause of death for Antonin Scalia released
    by David Warren Associated Press
    Antonin Scalia suffered from coronary artery disease, obesity and diabetes, among other ailments that probably contributed to the justice’s sudden death, according to a letter from the Supreme Court’s doctor.
    Presidio County District Attorney Rod Ponton cited the letter Tuesday when he told The Associated Press there was nothing suspicious about the Feb. 13 death of the 79-year-old jurist. He said the long list of health problems made an autopsy unnecessary.
    Ponton had a copy of a letter from Rear Adm. Brian P. Monahan, the attending physician for members of Congress and the Supreme Court. The letter was to county Judge Cinderela Guevara, who conducted a death inquiry by phone and certified Scalia’s death.
    The letter dated Feb. 16 said Scalia’s many “significant medical conditions led to his death,” Ponton said…..
    Ponton declined to provide a copy of the letter, saying an open-records request must be made to Guevara…..

    compare with Baltimore Sun this week –

    $10,000 reward offered for information about 13 dead bald eagles on Eastern Shore
    Federal agents were heading to the scene Monday to investigate further, Hibbard said. The bodies of the birds were to be sent to a forensic lab in Oregon for analysis.

  11. Jeffrey says:

    Brilliant work, again, Jon. The Faux News media prostitutes will never write such a clear-minded piece. Your piece is so clear that anyone with a modicum of healthy brain function would immediately understand…that it’s the same old story. Unfortunately, those who most need to develop their mental capacities are not the type who are known for reading anything worthwhile.

    something to work on…..

    Washington Post 24 Feb –

    Justice Scalia spent his last hours with members of this secretive society of elite hunters
    Cibolo Creek Ranch owner John Poindexter and C. Allen Foster, a prominent Washington lawyer who traveled to the ranch with Scalia by private plane, hold leadership positions within the Order. It is unclear what, if any, official association Scalia had with the group…..
    For the hunting weekend earlier this month, Poindexter told The Washington Post that Scalia traveled to Houston with his friend and U.S. marshals, who provide security for Supreme Court justices. The Post obtained a Presidio County Sheriff’s Office report that named Foster as Scalia’s close friend on the trip.
    Sheriff Danny Dominguez confirmed that a photograph of Washington lawyer C. Allen Foster is the same man he interviewed at the ranch the day of Scalia’s death.
    From Houston, Scalia and Foster chartered a plane without the marshals to the Cibolo Creek Ranch airstrip….
    Planes owned by Wallace “Happy” Rogers III and the company of A.J. Lewis III left from San Antonio and arrived at the ranch just after noon Feb. 12. The planes departed the ranch about 30 minutes apart Feb. 14, according to flight records provided to The Post by FlightAware.
    Rogers owns the Buckhorn Saloon and Museum in San Antonio. He has donated $65,000 to Republican candidates since 2008. Lewis is the owner of a restaurant supplier company, also based in San Antonio. He has given $3,500 to GOP candidates since 2007…..
    The (law enforcement) officials said the FBI had declined to investigate Scalia’s death when they were told by the marshals that he died from natural causes.

      Anonymous,

      Ha! You beat me to it! I was just about to post a comment to Jon about the “hunting group” Scalia, Poindexter and others who were at the ranch belonged to.

      Jon, if you’re reading this, perhaps Scalia was involved in after hours entertainment that wasn’t so “conservative.” The same Texas ranch has been frequented by Mick Jagger and Charlie Sheen, from what I dug up. And they were not there to hunt quail. Poindexter bothered me from the second I saw his face. He looks….well….like a lizard. When you see that, you follow the breadcrumbs until you find the real reason Scalia was hanging out in Texas. Then it makes sense why the judge refused to order an autopsy. It also makes sense why his wife agreed. If she knew of his secret life, she also knew it couldn’t get out. So the cover up began.

      Was he sacrificed or was he taking part in something that went a little too far and the cover stories had to be created in that two hour window between when they claim they knocked on his door and actually entered??

    kind of a companion piece to the Post’s “Justice Scalia spent his last hours with members of this secretive society of elite hunters” by Amy Brittain and Sari Horwitz.

    24 Feb – Washington Post – Jerry Markon: Scalia’s traveling companion in Texas was a prominent Washington lawyer
    Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s traveling companion at the Texas ranch where he died is a longtime Washington lawyer who has represented the Republican Party and shared a love of food, wine and hunting with the late conservative justice…..
    Despite having a famous friend, Foster has mostly stayed out of the news. Over the years, his eclectic group of clients has included the Republican Party, the libertarian Cato Institute, plaintiffs enslaved by Japanese corporations during World War II, and the former Blackwater Security Consulting, which was involved in a series of questionable incidents, including a 2007 shootout in Iraq that killed 17 Iraqis.
