  1. Yep ... and Clinton made sure everyone understands that she didn't agree with Scalia on anything. In spite of this, millions of idiots are lining up to vote for Clinton.

  2. "he wanted to go back to when homosexuals were in the closet and discrimination was widespread"
    That was Ducky's genius assessment of Scalia at Silverfiddle's blog today....THIS is the kind of thinking that's SO stupid and SO UNthinking and SO leftwing that we can think there is NO HOPE....
    Carson was right "We will get what we deserve."....
    To malign a man like Scalia....wow.
    Bye bye, Miss AMerican Pie....

  3. Z, Yes, libtards cannot think beyond their contact lenses.

    Comrade Brezmenev(sic) tells us "When they see what Equality means in Marxist Leninist America really means, they will revolt" Here it comes.

    1. Z, PS, and to focus on some small group or people like homosexuals, or some abstract like 'discrimination' screams of someone's complete lack of insight and intelligence. Things like this can take care of themselves. We're talking about putting major sections of the Constitution through the shredder. It won't matter whether jimmy can kiss tommy at that point and at that point it will become obvious. There is a point in our near future where dipsticks like duckfat will realize and say to themselves "Good God what have we done." Heh. Well, they will be the least prepared for it. We will be the most prepared for it. That's something anyway.

  4. Antonin Scalia’s Death Could Mark End of Constitution

    by BEN SHAPIRO

    February 13, 2016

    The death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia doesn’t merely mark a tragedy for Constitutional philosophy – it may mark the death of American Constitutionalism as a whole.

    Scalia’s philosophy of jurisprudence is well-known and shaped two generations of conservative thinkers: the Constitution ought to be interpreted according to its original meaning. This shouldn’t have been a groundbreaking notion given that most legislation is interpreted according to those rules, but because leftist jurists have spent a century chiseling away at the meaning of the Constitution based on their personal political beliefs, Scalia’s reinvigoration of traditional interpretive methodologies made him a historic figure.

    Scalia’s brilliant, passionate writing style made him author of some of the most famous dissents in Supreme Court history, and channeled the modern conservative frustration with the continuing abandonment of the Constitution.

    Scalia’s jurisprudence also reminded conservatives that there is no substitute for proven Constitutional originalism. Most conservatives ignored that when they greenlit the appointment of cipher John Roberts for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, a point I made when he was appointed. But Scalia provided a consistent reminder that Constitutional philosophy matters.

    It isn’t just a game of doing whatever you want politically. Constitutional jurisprudence is about recognizing the limits of the federal government – and recognizing the limits of the politicization of the Court itself.

    In the end, Scalia’s death could mark the end of the Constitution itself. That’s because the current Supreme Court rested, until Scalia’s death, on the vague, confused, indeterminate philosophy of Justice Anthony Kennedy, who apparently decides cases on the basis of whether he has a solid bowel movement that morning. That means that half the time, the Constitution has a shot, as in Citizens United; the other half of the time, the Constitution drains away into the mists of Kennedy’s magical social justice thinking, as in Obergefell.

    Unlike Kennedy, Scalia represented a consistent vote for a Constitution beyond modern progressive power politics. But with his death, President Obama now has the power to appoint a fifth justice to join hard-left social engineers Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    If the Republican Senate allows President Obama to select Scalia’s successor, the left will have a complete monopoly on the Supreme Court. Within the next few years, Citizens United will be overturned, restoring limits on free speech; the Supreme Court will render the Second Amendment meaningless by reinterpreting the right to bear arms as a non-personal right; freedom of religion will be made subservient to same-sex marriage and abortion priorities; the death penalty will be ruled unconstitutional; unions will be allowed to continue confiscating the dollars of people who disagree with them politically; redistricting along leftist lines will return. Scalia ensured that the Supreme Court wasn’t a transformative institution; now it will become the chief tool in the left’s arsenal.

    It’s a sad commentary on the state of conservative politics that the only thing standing between the United States and the death of its founding document was a brilliant 79-year-old jurist. But unless Republicans stand up on their hind legs now, that will certainly be the case.

    1. FT, Yep, We'll see. Not only whether the repubblekins can block another obama nominee but whether the now current 4 solid libs to 3.5 conservatives will judge constitutionally between now and then..

  5. It may never be proven, but I am morally certain Justice Scalia was ASSASSINATED.

    His body was embalmed immediately, and NO AUTOPSY was PERFORMED, despite the requirement that an autopsy be made by Texas Law.

    It has been reported that he was found with a PILLOW over his face.

    He had NOT been ill, and unless evidence appears to the contrary from a credible source, he was NOT suffering from any chronic, potentially fatal diseases.

    The TIMING of this tragic event DOES NOT PASS the SMELL TEST. Anyone who blandly accepts "official reports" at face value is hopelessly naive.

  6. Ever since I read of Justice Scalia's passing, I've been in turmoil over the very things that FreeThinke has so eloquently posited. I can understand his family's reservations, but Justice Scalia's position is much more important than that. A proper inquiry into the cause of death must be performed. I don't think the family would prefer having to disinter his remains at a later date to quell the conspiracy rumors.

    1. Cube, well, one thing - if you wanted to kill a 79 year old man, I believe it could be done without leaving traces. Also, if the dems/commies were going to hit one of them, he would be the primary target. And we can be quite sure that democrats do kill people for political advantage. No question about it. But we will never know.
