President Barack Obama was reportedly informed about the death of Antonin Scalia hours before it was publicly announced that the Supreme Court Justice had been found dead at a West Texas ranch.
The website DC Whispers, which routinely publishes controversial reports based on inside sources, asserts that Obama knew about Scalia’s death well before it became public knowledge.
“Word reached the White House hours before formal media announcements were made regarding longtime Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia having been found dead while vacationing at a Texas resort. First the speechwriters were summoned to provide the appropriate tone for Barack Obama’s remarks,” states the report.
“During that same time, Obama and Valerie Jarrett were already initiating a long-standing plan for what they viewed as a prime opportunity to make Mr. Obama relevant once again and an opportunity that the President was said to be thrilled to have before him.”
If accurate, the report will feed suspicions that foul play may have been involved in Scalia’s death.
Scalia died while staying at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, a 30,000 acre luxury resort owned by Texas businessman and Democratic Party donor John Poindexter.
Confusion and contradiction surrounds the circumstances behind Scalia’s death, with Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara pronouncing the Supreme Court Justice dead of natural causes having not seen the body.
When Guevara talked to law enforcement officers on the scene, she was told “there were no signs of foul play,” but it subsequently emerged that Scalia was found with a pillow over his head.
Other officials questioned why there were no plans for an autopsy to be performed and why Scalia’s body had been quickly embalmed, a process that would destroy toxicology evidence, after being escorted to Sunset Funeral Home in El Paso by a procession of 20 police officers.
“If it had been me, I would want to know,” Juanita Bishop, a justice of the peace in Presidio, Tex., told the Washington Post.
Guevara also reversed a statement she initially made to the media claiming that Scalia had died of a heart attack, insisting that he had in fact died of “natural causes”.
In a related development, William Gheen, president of the Americans for Legal Immigration political action committee, is calling for an immediate and comprehensive investigation into Scalia’s death to determine if foul play was involved.
“Anytime a head of state, member of Congress, or the most conservative member of the U.S. Supreme Court is found dead, an extensive autopsy and toxicology examination should be both immediate and mandatory,” said Gheen. “The horrid reaction and comments about his death expressed by many liberals online illustrate that Scalia was hated by many people. His death hands the power of the Supreme Court to the modern left for the first time in American history.”
“The court can now vote, even without a replacement of Scalia, to radically change the United States of America. Scalia’s death means the Supreme Court is now very likely to rubber stamp Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty orders, tear down Republican drawn districts in many states including North Carolina, and take deep left turns on abortion, gun rights, or anything the liberals have ever dreamed of. Scalia was a solid vote against Obama’s immigration orders to be decided by April of this year. We do not contend there is a conspiracy, we contend that there should be no doubts, and the way authorities and the media are rushing conclusions will leave major doubts and legitimate concerns about a death that could lead to a radical political transformation of America to the left.”
