Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Has Died at Age 79

Well, another bureaucrat bites the dust. And yes, U.S. Supreme Court “Justice” (sic) Antonin Scalia was just another bureaucrat. He claimed to be an “originalist,” basing his opinions on the “original intent” of the writers of the U.S. Constitution. Apparently that does not include the writers of the Bill of Rights (which he seemed to have long forgotten was also a part of the Constitution).

For instance, Scalia agreed that if police smell marijuana from outside your door, they may then violently break into your home, without a search warrant. Oooh, “marijuana,” Justice (sic) Scalia! Look out! There’s someone who has marijuana in his home! Time to act like a neanderthal and criminally break in and arrest those druggies!

So no, Scalia did NOT take the Framers’ passion for liberty and private property rights seriously. Thomas Jefferson would NOT agree with such police state tactics. Especially when the purpose of such State criminality is because someone has some damn DRUGS! Jefferson, Patrick Henry, et al. would even oppose your police state laws prohibiting drugs in the first place if they were around today.

No, Scalia was not an “originalist.”

And here is the late Supreme Bureaucrat slicing and dicing the Second Amendment and the right to “keep and bear arms.”

Of course the Founders would include the right of the people to have cannons, and to shoot down planes* (if they knew about planes then). Their main purpose of protecting the people’s right to keep and bear arms was to do with the people’s right to resist tyranny. Which is why they, or most of them anyway, opposed the government’s having a standing army. If they were to return to life today, the Founders would agree with me that to preserve the people’s liberty it would be preferable that the people possess the armaments, not the agents of the government. Resisting tyranny is what many Jews attempted to do during Nazi Germany, but many were not able to do because of their rulers’ restrictions on them.

*Note: By “the right to shoot down planes,” I am referring to the right of the people to shoot down their tyrannical government’s planes that may be attacking the people, in their own country. I am also referring to ANY planes operated by any people that may be attacking or bombing innocent people, anywhere.

Regarding the Founders’ belief in the people’s right to keep and bear arms as a means of protecting themselves from their own government’s tyranny: In Federalist No. 46, James Madison wrote, “Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”

Did Scalia agree with that way of thinking? No, of course he didn’t. He was like the typical government bureaucrat: preserve the power of the government, restrict the people’s liberty. (We’re all going to be taken to the FEMA camps anyway, as Scalia believed. Oh, well.)

Now, the Republicans are saying that Obama shouldn’t appoint a replacement “Justice,” but the Democrats want a replacement. Does it really matter? Nope. We saw from the Kelo decision and Chief Bureaucrat John Roberts’s just making stuff up to defend ObamaCare, that that’s what they will do to preserve the power of the Regime in Washington at the expense of our liberty: make stuff up.

Scalia was supposedly good on freedom of speech and the First Amendment, but in some cases not so much. Will the replacement Supreme Bureaucrat be worse on freedom of speech, especially where it pertains to this faux “War on Terrorism”? Probably, regardless of whether it is an Obama appointee or a Trump or Bush appointee.

Question: Did Obama have Scalia “taken out” so that Obama can better ram his climate agenda through? The main purpose of the climate agenda is to raise taxes or impose new ones and steal even more from the workers and producers. Given what we saw with Andrew Breitbart and Michael Hastings, and Obama’s war on journalists, whistleblowers and drugs, his drone murder spree and Obama’s belief in assassination of those whose views he dislikes, I would not be shocked by it. (However, I am not accusing him or anyone of foul play, I’m merely asking the question.)

Prediction: Obama will pick Cass Sunstein as the next Supreme Bureaucrat.
