According to the official story, Judge Antonin Scalia was found dead in his bed this weekend while a guest at the Cibolo Creek Ranch in West Texas.
A first-time guest to the Cibolo Creek Creek Ranch, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was animated and engaged during dinner Friday night, as one of three dozen invitees to an event that had nothing to do with law or politics, according to the ranch owner.
Just hours later, he would be found dead of âapparent natural causes,â which media outlets were reporting Sunday was a heart attack.
âHe was seated near me and I had a chance to observe him. He was very entertaining. But about 9 p.m. he said, âitâs been a long day and a long week, I want to get some sleep,â recalled Houston businessman John Poindexter, who owns the 30,000-acre luxury ranch.
When Poindexter tried to awaken Scalia about 8:30 the next morning, the judgeâs door was locked and he did not answer. Three hours later, Poindexter returned after an outing, with a friend of Scalia who had come from Washington with him.
We discovered the judge in bed, a pillow over his head. His bed clothes were unwrinkled,â said Poindexter.
âHe was lying very restfully. It looked like he had not quite awakened from a nap,â he said.
Scalia, 79, did not have a pulse and his body was cold, and after consulting with a doctor at a hospital in Alpine, Poindexter concluded resuscitation would have been futile. He then contacted federal authorities, at first encountering a series of answering services because he was calling on a weekend.
The body of the Supreme Court justice was moved to an El Paso funeral home early Sunday. The body was driven from Marfa and arrived around 2:30 a.m. at Sunset Funeral Homes, according to spokesman Chris Lujan.
Lujan said the funeral home was chosen by family of the justice, and at the advice of a family friend.
Yet as details of Scaliaâs sudden death trickled in Sunday, it appeared that the hours afterward were anything but orderly. The man known for his elegant legal opinions and profound intellect was found dead in his room at a hunting resort by the resortâs owner, who grew worried when Scalia didnât appear at breakfast Saturday morning.
It then took hours for authorities in remote West Texas to find a justice of the peace, officials said Sunday. When they did, Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara pronounced Scalia dead of natural causes without seeing the body â which is permissible under Texas law â and without ordering an autopsy.
One of two other officials who were called but couldnât get to Scaliaâs body in time said that she would have made a different decision on the autopsy.
âIf it had been me .â.â. I would want to know,â Juanita Bishop, a justice of the peace in Presidio, Tex., said in an interview Sunday of the chaotic hours after Scaliaâs death.
Meanwhile, Guevara acknowledged that she pronounced Scalia dead by phone, without seeing his body. Instead, she spoke to law enforcement officials at the scene â who assured her âthere were no signs of foul playâ â and Scaliaâs physician in Washington, who said that the 79-year-old justice suffered from a host of chronic conditions.
Guevara also rebutted a report by a Dallas TV station that quoted her as saying that Scalia had died of âmyocardial infarction.â In an interview with The Washington Post, she said she meant only that his heart had stopped.
âIt wasnât a heart attack,â Guevara said. âHe died of natural causes.â
The circumstances surrounding Supreme Court Judge Antonin Scaliaâs death are growing more suspicious by the minute.
What was the cause of Scaliaâs death? Was it a heart attack or death by natural causes? No one seems to know. The story keeps changing.
Who dies with a pillow over their head?
Why wasnât an autopsy performed? With no autopsy performed, henceforth his body has been embalmed, basically erasing any chances for the coroner to conduct efficient toxicology tests.
Judge Scalia was a defender of freedom, a defender of the Second Amendment and the Constitution. Scalia and Obama and powerful liberals greatly disagreed on issues like gun control and immigration.
Scalia was the tie breaking judge, the man who could push back any liberal policies being shoved through the court. With Scaliaâs death, the Obama Administration or a future Hillary Clinton Administration has a green door to confiscate guns, flood the country with illegals and wreck the Constitution.
In the 1972 film the Godfather, Luca Brasi, Don Vito Corleoneâs henchman was murdered by rival mobsters. Brasiâs bulletproof vest was sent to the Corleone family with a dead fish wrapped inside, a signal Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes.
The pillow over Scaliaâs head wasnât put there by a Hispanic maid.
The pillow over the head is a warningâ¦
The same people who want you to believe Scalia died of a heart attack or natural causes are the same people who want you to believe that Hillary won the Iowa Caucuses with six coin tosses and the same people who want you to believe after fifty years that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin of President Kennedy.
Of course the MSM has reported on none of this. Even Fox News refuses to cover the strange occurrences in Texas. The Outnumbered girls this morning were more interested in the color of their pastel high heels, than the diabolical machinations of power in this country.
Joseph Goebbels once said that âIf you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.â
How many more lies can the American people accept as simple normality? It is high time for the slumbering American people to wake up and realize they are being lied to and used.
Clearly Judge Scalia died of natural causes just like John F. Kennedy did.
Nothing to see here folks, move onâ¦
Good article. Lots of questions....
He died of “natural causes”...He was “naturally” suffocated with a pillow.
He was a very important man who should have had someone with him at all times especially considering that he was a fat smoker with medical problems. The timing and the way this is being handled makes it makes it much more suspicious.
I think to continue this line is very disrespectful to his family and to the man himself.
Well ... when your heart stops beating, couldn’t you plausibly say you had naturally died?
This will go away just like the “death” of Osama Bin-Laden.
Transforming America, those who disregard conspiracies are not searching for the truth just accepting it as, one can only look at the despicable humans in the political field.
I would tend to agree with you, except this is the year 2016, not the year 1016. Saying "natural causes" is simply not good enough anymore. It just isn't.
Huh? What was behind it?
Goose down vs fiberfill?
Living close to the funeral home that Scalia was taken to really surprised me. It’s sort of an out of the way place here in El Paso. There were other facilities closer to the airport. Maybe its appeal was that it was so nondescript and out of the way.
It's an old piano, and they play it hot behind the green door.
“There were no questions. He was 79 with a lot of medical problems. “
and traveled from his home about 10 feet above sea level, to a ranch in the high desert about 4600 feet. He died the night after his arrival day. Oxygen is your friend.
It is suspicious. They had Scalia embalmed within 24 hours. The whole thing is stinky cheese.
It is just one more factor that makes this a suspicious event. How did the good judge happen to decide to stay in a remote “ranch” with no one accompanying him. You may know better than me but the owner, John Poindexter is Democrat with inside connections. Here is an article with pictures of him shaking Obama’s hand.
I’m curious why his son had to cancel the trip at the last minute. What or who causd that cancellation? Was this a ploy to have Judge Scalia alone?
It is certain that if a family member was with him, an autopsy would have been performed or, Judge Scalia would still be alive.
The circumstances surrounding Supreme Court Judge Antonin Scalias death are growing more suspicious by the minute.
What was the cause of Scalias death? Was it a heart attack or death by natural causes? No one seems to know. The story keeps changing.
Who dies with a pillow over their head?
Why wasnt an autopsy performed? With no autopsy performed, henceforth his body has been embalmed, basically erasing any chances for the coroner to conduct efficient toxicology tests.
Found dead with a pillow over his head, bed clothes unwrinkled, pronounced dead over the phone, no autopsy, prior medical ‘problems’ not enumerated.
“The same people who want you to believe Scalia died of a heart attack or natural causes are the same people who want you to believe that Hillary won the Iowa Caucuses with six coin tosses and the same people who want you to believe after fifty years that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin of President Kennedy.”
The same people want you to believe there is nothing on the moon but rocks ...
Like Ray says nothing to see, move along ... back to the Kardashians or the DJT circus.
