Antonin Scalia

The mystery surrounding Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's death deepens with the news that he was found with a pillow over his face.

According to published news reports Scalia, who was a robust 79, died of a heart attack in the "el presidente" suite at a Texas hunting ranch.

A pillow was found over his face and the bed sheets were unwrinkled, according to the reports.

Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara signed off on the cause of death. Despite the strange circumstances there will be no autopsy, as is often the case when someone dies of natural causes.

Judge Guevara was apparently persuaded that Scalia died of a myocardial infraction even though she never examined the body. The judge spoke with Scalia's doctor whom he visited with a week before he died, complaining of shoulder pain.

Shoulder pain is one of the early symptoms of a heart attack.

Judge Guevara defended her decision this way:

“When [the physician] explained [Scalia] had just visited on Wednesday and Thursday and [the doctor] had done an MRI, then I felt comfortable what I knew was going on with him physically,” Guevara said.

But questions still linger.

Many point out the fact tha -- just last week -- presidential candidate Hillary Clinton suggested she would appoint President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court if she were elected president.

But a sitting Supreme Court justice would have to die first for that to happen.

What a coincidence…

Scalia's death opens up a whole new can of worms. Specifically Obama rushing to nominate a liberal lawyer to fill the conservative Scalia's vacant seat.

But the Republican heavy Senate has already vowed to shoot down any and all of Obama's choices, meaning there will be only 8 justices on the Supreme Court until after Obama leaves office.

Filling Scalia's empty seat is important to the Democrats because it means the incoming president (Donald Trump) can't overturn Obama's liberal policies, such as the woefully inefficient Obamacare. At least not right away.

    It doesn't matter how he died. I said to @Yoni and nem Saturday, it's a gatdamn shame how it's like 1 pm Justice Scalia is dead. AND 1:15... A Press RELEASE on how they fighting over his seat. I'm ashamed of both. Republicans AND the fuggin Democrats. Damn classless vultures. Sure as hell said that chit.

  • rayne215

    this reminds me of that Will Smith movie, Enemy of the State...

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    The fight over that seat started immediately. Pres. Obama even mentioned it in his speech about Scalia's service. It is not going to be pretty.

  • rayne215

    Why is Obama being brought up?

  • MyThoughts

    In short, President Obama will decide who to nominate to replace Scalia.

  • Saharabutnotdry

    It's always the black guy's fault .

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    I didn't care either, but Sandra's post now makes me wonder why they made a point of announcing that there would be "no autopsy"??????

  • Jusstlookn
  • Let Your Soul Glow

    You better save your baby some food!

  • surprise2012

    Um. I've never even heard of him until they announced he died. SMH.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    Unfortunately, the Republicans feel a replacement should not be chosen by the current president, but by whomever takes his place next year. After watching snippets of the SC debate (I believe it was) I think if any of the Republican candidates are elected it wont matter one way or the other because we are doomed. All their azzes are crazy. IMO

  • Genia W-m

    I hardly think Obama wants to be a SCJ. He's ready to leave office and go back into his private life after serving such an ungrateful nation. Many racist white folks and many Blacks who expected him to be their savior despite the fact his title is "President of the US!"

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Lmaooooo ?

    This made me chuckle

  • MyThoughts

    You are absolutely correct, the Republican-led Senate do not want President Obama's pick and feel the next president should select who takes the seat. Mitch McConnell has already suggested the Republicans will not allow a vote on whoever President Obama nominates. Things are about to get really messy.

    Not sure how true this is but from what I've read.

  • Zizzle

    Here we go citing breitbart . com again. ???

  • Zizzle

    Because breitbart.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    Things have been messy for almost eight years and we all know why. I'm hoping President Obama has something up his sleeve to get it done despite the opposition.

  • MyThoughts

    Well, that's true, but It's going to get messier I should say.........

  • Paige

    He's also looking at being nominated for UN Secretary General. Scalias death is no surprise here. I agree with you Auntie. Something's rotten!!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    In other words, he has no intention of leaving the White House and sitting down somewhere.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You're welcome hun.

  • Savoy7

    Good

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That's typical in cases where the death is ruled natural causes. There is no autopsy unless the family requests one.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    In short, Obama's nominee will not be confirmed by the Senate.

  • Maya

    #Scandal

  • LeBrick James

    not cool.

  • LeBrick James

    Just google it . There's lots of reputable sites talking about the pillow .

  • LeBrick James

    That's gonna help the Democrats though, so they probably want Obama to force the Republicans' hand on this issue.
    This is gonna be some political drama like we havent seen for a long time.

  • whitty hutton

    His wife didn't want an autopsy is what was reported on MSNBC.

  • scentsychick30

    Wait is that a photoshopped pillow??Aww man ??

  • LeBrick James

    What makes him a horrible human being?

    He was a conservative judge, but not everybody who's a conservative is a horrible human being.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Didn't mean to laugh but I kinda did

  • whitty hutton

    Me either. #manufacturedscandal

  • Paige

    Pillow over his face? God bless his soul. If I were Catholic I would do some Hail Mary's but since I am not, I will pray for his family. This is fishy fishy fishy. I would demand an autopsy if I were his family. It's hard to believe out of 9 children no one wants to know the cause of his death. They are probably having one done but keeping it on the low.

  • That’s Interesting

    From what I've seen after his death, he looks like a racist, bigot Italian. I don't trust anyone who is completely black or white about everything. I'm sure Mr. Conservative had some skeletons in his closet too.

  • 1/8

    I can definitely picture Hillary smothering Scalia with a pillow, while screaming, "Die b!tch! Die!" ?

  • scentsychick30

    Ha me neither,but man when I saw that pillow?

  • Varnell Hill

    I believe there was foul play involved.

  • Di Ana

    When i was reading up on him he advocated for minorities particularly black students to go to different schools because he claimed they learned slower. Someone with that mindset there's no telling what under handed things he has done.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I mean he died and Obama in the write up more than the judge

  • Li

    The theory is that he committed suicide (or he was killed, not likely) because a pillow was over his head. He had heart problems, maybe he was really ill and just didn't want to go on with life again. A man of his standing, normally there's an autopsy....but .... if he committed suicide it would be reported as such and the family wouldn't collect insurance.
    The rich do stuff like that.

  • Li

    Probably because he "may" have committed suicide and if so, then there's no insurance money.

  • Fendi

    The Clintons have a long history of disposing of people who obstruct their path. I am here for this theory.

  • Fendi

    There are insurance policies that pay on suicide deaths. You may have to wait 2-3 years for beneficiaries to collect, but they exist.

  • Fendi

    Is it the ad with the softcore porn actress as one of the stars, or did they pull that ad? Lol

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lol

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    They must've pulled that one. I haven't seen it.

  • LordeAmbler

    I studied insurance. They pay out after 2-3 years especially if the policy was an older one. New policies they will just refund the premium payments. Insurance is a much slept on financial gain better than putting your money in the bank.

  • Fendi

    I saw it on Inside Edition. I love it when these guys get their crap back. Lol

  • Fendi

    Agreed. Thank you. I always see comments about people claiming insurance policies don't pay when a holder commits suicide. Not true.

  • LordeAmbler

    Yeah cause it was always a way to deter people from getting policies and then killing themselves but the insurance company will basically hold that policy put it in a high yielding account collect interest which will take about 2-4 years than disperse. That way they still make money. But the family still gets paid eventually. And rightfully so.

  • LordeAmbler

    She probably killed him.

  • Zizzle

    Resulting in another win for the Democrats in November.

  • Zizzle

    A recess appointment is an option.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Keep dreaming hun.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I knew it was fishy not to order a second, true autopsy.

  • Zizzle

    No need to dream. Republicans always lose in the end. Especially when they go up against President Obama.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Second autopsy?

    The family declined an autopsy.

    I have no idea where you get your facts.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    He smothered Scalia in TX while he was golfing in Virginia.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yeah as as a retired POTUS he will receive $400K/year for the rest of his life.

    I believe the salary for an Associate Justice is less than $200K.

    Add in all of the speaking fees and money Obama will get for his books it would be stupid financially for him to even consider a nomination to the High Court.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    An official cause of death rather. Is that better? LOL, bye.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Hillary killing him now makes no sense other than a lunatic like you.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    He had just returned from an Asian book tour.

    It could have been a pulmonary embolism if not a heart attack.

    You may want to google some pics of Scalia.

    He was a fatty and a few weeks short of his 80th birthday.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Blame the family and Texas.

    Some woman pronounced him dead over the phone from hundreds of miles away.

  • Zizzle

    MARFA, Texas — The death certificate for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia will list myocardial infarction — a heart attack — as the official cause of death, Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara told WFAA on Sunday. - USA Today NOT breitbart . com

    I came up with the NY Post and this site, neither of which are reputable.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If Clinton were going to off someone it would have been Bernie, but you don't seem to be that bright.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Which will be another nail in the coffin of the Republican party.

    They have made no bones about why they won't even vote for anyone whom Obama nominates.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    A recess appointment is certainly an option, but because he used it before the Republicans will be expecting it and be prepared to stop it. Also, I believe he only has a week before they come back, so I'm thinking he has a different plan and is setting it up as we speak.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yeah but only for the Republicans.

    Did you see that clusterf*ck of a debate among the Republicans Saturday night?

    Whew

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    A lot of blacks especially from inner cities have been poised with lead.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Like McConnell telling Obama not to even think about nominating anyone even before Scalia's death had been officially announced?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    ...the woefully inefficient Obamacare... This is so true, as Trump would say, "It's a disaster". We will feel the negative financial impact to our economy of Obamacare soon and it won't be pretty. Our government loves that many Americans are glued to these reality shows, instagram, twitter, taking selfies, iphones instead of taking time to become really informed and understand what is going on with our economy and these policies Obama rammed through by Executive Orders and the negative impact they will have on us, it's very scary.

    If you haven't heard, it sounds like foul play. According to this article that above cause of death was not determined due to autopsy, rather an assumption as Scalia had visited his doctors prior to death.

    "But the Republican heavy Senate has already vowed to shoot down any and

    Supreme Court until after Obama leaves office." - SR shouldn't attempt to do political reporting. Everything depends on the nominee and the election. If Dems get a majority in the senate in Nov Obama "could" get someone on the bench before his term ends.
