somebody finally stated it in print, the murder of Scalia,



Death of Scalia, Degeneration of America: Start Your Planning Now

Jeff Berwick



escape.jpg

This is a story about gun control in the US. More importantly it is a story about lies, deceit and the very public disintegration of the corpse of the Republic. That rotting corpse has further degenerated with the seeming murder of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Scalia’s death was first announced as a heart attack and then from natural causes. After that, those who discovered the body said it had a pillow over the head. And then later, in a clarification, it was claimed the pillow rested against the headboard of the bed as well as the head of the dead man.

And now no one is commenting at all.

But President Barack Obummer has just announced plans to name a Supreme Court candidate to fill the sudden vacancy.

And while the Senate leadership has indicated it won’t ratify the appointment, the Senate goes home before Obama leaves office. Thus, Obama can make a “recess” appointment.

The big impact will be on gun control. Until Scalia’s death, it looked as if an advance of gun control under the Obama administration was dead. Now the possibility is alive again.

But the American people don’t want gun control. In fact, some years ago, Democrats stopped trying to make gun control an issue. It was clear even during the Bush years that the nation was not pro gun-control and that as an election issue, it was poison.

As a result, a silence settled over the issue. The silence was broken to a degree by His Barackness, especially in his second term. But it was clear no gun control advances of any substance would be made.

Late in Obama’s second term the nation began to be afflicted by horrendous shootings, especially of children. There were horrible cinema killings in Oregon and the reported massacre of youngsters in a Connecticut school. Many in the alternative media attributed the shootings to the Obama administration. People are willing to believe anything of the US political system now, even that operatives would kill American citizens to surreptitiously advance an agenda of control and intimidation.

But accept that there are forces within the nation’s ruling facility that are in fact willing to do anything to impose gun control. These forces must have been inflamed by the alternative media’s exposure of the shootings as false flag events.

As a result of all this push-back, the backers of gun control were no better off than they had been before the shootings. If one uses this line of reasoning, we soon arrive at Antonin Scalia and his suspicious death.

Perhaps those in the US who want gun control were reluctant to murder Scalia but finally saw no choice. Or perhaps just as feasibly, those who want gun control in the US decided that the overt murder of Scalia was the best way to make clear to opponents that gun control was going to take place no matter what.

And it seems to have worked. As of this writing, GOP unity has begun to waver regarding the idea of blocking any Supreme Court nominee without a hearing.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is making undecided noises. “I would wait until the nominee is made before I would make any decision,” Mr. Grassley was quoted as saying on Tuesday. “In other words, take it a step at a time.”

And he added, “I think I have a responsibility to perform, and I can’t worry about the election. I’ve got to do my job as a senator, whatever it is. And there will be a lot of tough votes between now and the next election.”

The White House said Obama will nominate a Supreme Court candidate once the Senate returns from its recess next week. Speculation is that Obama will select a “consensus candidate” that will not seem to be tilting either left or right. But why would Obama select a Supreme Court Justice that would be anti gun control when his allies have gone out of the way – or so it seems – to remove the man that stood in the way of expansive gun legislation?

One potential nominee is Attorney General Loretta Lynch, 56. Ms. Lynch is currently first black woman filling the nation’s top law enforcement post. She likely would be a rabid pro-gun control justice.

Really it doesn’t matter who is nominated. If the nominee becomes a Supreme Court Justice, sooner or later US citizens will not be able to own guns excerpt under very restrictive circumstances.

When a nation confiscates guns, this is the first step historically to expanded totalitarian control. In the US, it could be the beginning of a kind of civil war.

We have apparently entered the defining moments of the death of the republic.

As of this writing, TDV staff and Anarchapulco attendees are meeting in Acapulco to discuss the challenges created by the death of Justice Scalia and what it means to citizens of the US and freedom-lovers everywhere. Scalia’s death has broad ramifications in security, political and investment areas. The clouds of true authoritarianism are gathering and will soon roll across the US.

The so-called patriot movement is in the cross-hairs of the administration and its backers. Millions of patriots are no doubt on government lists.

Anarcho-Capitalist. Libertarian. Freedom fighter against mankind’s two biggest enemies, the State and the Central Banks. Jeff Berwick is the founder of The Dollar Vigilante, CEO of TDV Media & Services and host of the popular video podcast, Anarchast. Jeff is a prominent speaker at many of the world’s freedom, investment and gold conferences including his own, Anarchapulco, as well as regularly in the media including CNBC, Bloomberg and Fox Business.


Jeff’s background in the financial markets dates back to his founding of Canada’s largest financial website, Stockhouse.com, in 1994. In the late ‘90s the company expanded worldwide into 8 different countries and had 250 employees and a market capitalization of $240 million USD at the peak of the “tech bubble”. To this day more than a million investors use Stockhouse.com for investment information every month.


Jeff was the CEO from 1994 until 2002 when he sold the company. Afterwards, Berwick went forth to live on and travel the world by sailboat but sank his boat in a storm off the coast of El Salvador. After being saved clinging to his surfboard with nothing but a pair of surfing shorts left of all his material possessions he decided to “live nowhere” and travel the world as spontaneously as possible with one overarching goal: See and understand the world with his own eyes, not through the lens of the media.


He went on to visit nearly 100 countries over five years and did and saw things that no education could ever teach. He met and spoke with a plethora of amazing people, from self-made billionaires to some of the brightest minds in finance – as well as entrepreneurs from a broad range of backgrounds and locations from tech companies in southern China to resource developers in Thailand, Russia and Chile. He also read everything he could find on how the world really works… politically and financially. A pursuit he continues to this day.


That education led him to become one of the biggest proponents of the Permanent Traveler/Prior Taxpayer (PT) Theory. He has since started numerous businesses including TDV Offshore and TDV Wealth Management to help others internationalize their assets. He also founded TDV Passports in 2009, although he turned over control to his partner in 2013, to help people get foreign residencies and citizenships.


He expatriated, long ago from his country of birth, Canada, and considers himself a citizen of the world. He has lived in numerous locales since including Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Acapulco, Mexico.

The decision to not perform an autopsy bugs me but I'm not jumping on the conspiracy bandwagon either.

Justice Scalia was a smoker, had heart disease, was overweight and diabetic among other risk factors. The surprise is that he made it 79 years.

He was a brilliant jurist with firm devotion to the Constitution.

I mourn his loss.

Oddly, on TV even the dog catcher or hobo gets an autopsy. One of the most important individuals in the FedGov dies and it's not worth the bother. Did they toss his corpse into the sea according to Christian traditions? Haha.

When they kick in that first door to take them it will start an upheaval all across the land they will not live to regret.

Is a recess appointment to the Court an option? (UPDATED)
UPDATED Sunday 8:48 a.m. The Senate is currently in recess until February 22. The recess began on Friday. Whether this opens an opportunity for a recess appointment depends upon how Senate leaders interpret an adjournment resolution approved last Friday. That will determine whether it will meet for brief activity during the recess, which could close that opportunity.

Analysis

The Constitution not only assigns to the president the task of making nominations to the Supreme Court, setting off Senate review that may or may not result in approval, but it also gives the Chief Executive the opportunity to fill a vacancy on the Court temporarily, bypassing the Senate initially, if a nominee languishes in the Senate without final action.

Within a few hours after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, it became abundantly clear that, first, President Obama will choose a possible successor and try to get the Senate to go along, and, second, the GOP leadership of the Senate say they will try to block any such nominee from final approval.

If that does result in an impasse, President Obama may ponder the possibility of putting on the Court a new Justice of his choosing, to serve temporarily. The problem, though, is that less than two years ago, the Supreme Court severely narrowed the flexibility of such temporary appointment power, and strengthened the Senate’s capacity to frustrate such a presidential maneuver.

It is true that one of the Justices regarded as a giant on the Court’s history, William J. Brennan, Jr., actually began his lengthy career with just such a short-term appointment. The chances of that happening again today seem to have diminished markedly.

The presidential authority at issue in this possible scenario exists, according to Article II, when the Senate has gone into recess and the vacancy a president seeks to fill remains. Such an appointment requires no action at all by the Senate, but the appointee can only serve until the end of the following Senate session. The president (if still in office) can then try again during a new Senate session, by making a new nomination, and that must be reviewed by the Senate.

The Supreme Court had never clarified that power until its decision in June 2014 in National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning.

The decision was something of a compromise. The Court expanded the concept of when the Senate would be in recess so that the president could make a temporary appointment, but it also gave the Senate more control over when it does recess and how long the recesses last. The gesture toward the Senate’s choices was probably the more important result.

Here, specifically, is what the Court decided:

First, on the president’s side, the Court ruled that the recess appointment power applies when the Senate leaves town for a break in the middle of an annual sitting, or a break at the end of each annual session.

Second, also on the president’s side, the decision declared that the president during a recess can fill a vacancy even if the opening occurred well before the recess began.

Third, on the Senate’s side, the ruling made clear that it has to last more than three days, without saying how much more time must pass without the Senate out of town and doing nothing.

Fourth, strongly on the Senate’s side, the decision left it largely up to the Senate to decide when it does take a recess, allowing it to avoid the formality of a recess by taking some legislative action, however minor or inconsequential and however few senators actually take part in some action.

Suppose President Obama goes ahead with a nomination to the open seat on the Court, and suppose that the Republican-controlled Senate chooses not to allow that nominee. The GOP has enough seats in the Senate to control that scenario.

Suppose, then, that the Senate goes into recess to allow its members who are running for reelection to spend some more time campaigning back home.

Could President Obama make a nominee during that recess? Only if the Senate is taking a recess lasting longer than three days, and does not come in from time to time during that recess to take some minimal legislative action. Both of those circumstances would be entirely within the Senate’s authority.

In that circumstance, a recess appointment to the Court would not be within the terms of the Constitution, as spelled out in Article II.

The same situation would likely apply when this year’s Senate session comes to an end, and the senators take a recess before the next Congress assembles.

The bottom line is that, if President Obama is to successfully name a new Supreme Court Justice, he will have to run the gauntlet of the Republican-controlled Senate, and prevail there. The only real chance of that: if he picks a nominee so universally admired that it would be too embarrassing for the Senate not to respond.

I question everything my government tells me. I don't trust those lying bastards one bit. If that makes me a conspiracy nut, so be it

He was a pretty sick puppy, very strange with all his kids and allies to not have someone with him on that trip.....Plus he was ailing due to a cuff rotator issue so they probably put him on percocet or other narcotic, a deadly cocktail--poisoned by the AMA!!!

I am against the unlimited donations to the politicians (Citizens United) and a bunch of his cronyism decisions. John Jay and the early jurists would be utterly disgusted with the current state of our legal system. And back then did they even have jails? Not so much, they put people in the stocks, and held them in ward for a speedy trial.

The story is that his son was supposed to attend but cancelled at the last minute.

I heard that too but surely there were substitutes who would have been willing to go?

My wife had a friend who recently died while on a trip by herself. She had been diagnosed with terminal cancer, heart disease and other issues, and I could not help but think that she was ready to go while on the trip.

I don't know what was going on in the head of A. Scalia, but his actions suggest that he wanted to be unescorted for his hunting trip, and given his obvious brilliance, he must have known his own state of physical well-being/malaise.

Maybe if the immoral degenerates in DC had not started fighting over a replacement 2 hr's after the story hit the news wire, the body was still warm , done a autopsy by a trusted source & o asshat had attended the funeral, it might be believable that he dies in his sleep. This simply looks like a created opportunity to advance the liberal muzzies NWO agenda and create a legacy where none exists.

Scalia may have been brilliant in the law but was probably a dunce when it came to health maintenance, ignored all alternative, traditional health ideas which will become mainstream eventually. And probably the wife and the friends around him were also hostile to natural alternative treatments which would have allowed him to have a much higher quality of life living 10 years more, etc..

What I noticed in colleges and with most students is the unwillingness to permit their studies to influence their lifestyle, or "real" life; because most students just want to be A students, have a great paying job, the trophy wife/husband, and be the American success story. They don't want to be fully human and creative because to operate out of the herd is deadly to "success" for the most part. "Ours is not to reason why, ours is but to do or die". And Scalia was that typical Roman Catholic corporate eunuch cog.

Nominate radical black woman.

Hmm, oppose this and your stores will be firebombed and looted. The race cards will look like a game of 52 card pickup.
