DOA: Scalia conspiracy theories

Antonin Scalia’s death isn’t much of a puzzle. He was 79 years old and had heart disease. It’s no stretch to conclude he died in his sleep. But some people like to play detective

ZZZzzzzzzz

    Yes, some people like to “play detective.”

    And some people like to compare apples to meteorites.

    Typical Main Stream Media associating some wild ridiculous conspiracy “theory” with the same sort of thinking as occurrs for those who question the official BS story.We see this “association” being made in the media with other ridiculous “theories like Sandy Hook was a hoax, Boston was a hoax, and all sorts of stuff about the same actors playing in different hoaxes. The attempts to link whacko with credible questions and research has been ongoing. Inquiring minds can’t help but wonder where the whacko “theories originate and if the are indeed a part of the “cognitive infiltration” that Cass Sunstein advocated. Lumping every manor ridiculousness into the same category as questioning the official JFK story is an attempt to shape public opinion. It’s a continuation of the lies, a continuation of the cover up. Now as then the Main Stream Media plays a major roll.

      No, the problem was, and is, despite the proliferation of internet access, information deficit.
      Incurious people overreact on the basis of too little information. They put too much faith in the
      presentations of other incurious people (aka book authors) overreacting on the basis of too little information and a priority of selling their books.

      I try to take advantage of every opportunity to present well supported examples of this “group think.”
      It is woefully misguided but does support an assumption that the great majority are usually wrong.
      This is not Cass Sunstein’s or the CIA’s fault.

      Mock Attack On Pearl Harbor Set A Pattern For Japanese .

      Google News – Dec 6, 1971
      …..On their 1932 “attack” the Navy flyers had “hit” only the vessels lined up in Battleship Row. And this is exactly what the Japanese did in 1941; only our ships were the targets of their bombs. The installations were not hit…..
      …..During one of my broadcasts on sometime later, an admiral who had been a captain on flagship at the time of the mock attack said that if the Japanese had bombed our repair facilities and fuel supplies at Pearl Harbor, another three years would have been added to the length of World War II….

        You may be right. The speed at which some of these “theories develope is mind boggling. I’ve seen falsified photos on social media within hours after an event which tells me that some people are waiting to take advantage of events that happen.

        I couldn’t agree more, especially on the “priority of selling their books” part. There are some terrible books out there (both sides).

  3. A friend of mine sent me a link to an Alex Jones video on Jones’ take on the death of Scalia. It was the same hysterical tripe that Jones is infamous for. Personally I find his delivery so obnoxious, I cannot listen to the man for more than a few minutes without looking for an exit.

    One might get the impression that Jones is out to give “conspiracy theory” a bad name.

    Anyway, there seemed nothing persuasive in the story. Not a hint of what a motive might have been for anyone concerned.

    I didn’t think Scalia had a sound grasp of the Constitution, like the vast majority of people in the so-called “Justice Department” in the modern era, the interpretation was skewed towards what is termed; “practical politics” not the proper construction of constitutional text.
    Both the so-called “Right” and “Left” are guilty of the same push into ultra vires.

    The “Union” was saved by the Civil War, but the “Republic” was lost.

      • Yes I know Tom,

        Jefferson was opposed to the Supreme Court (Marshal) from the beginning, as well as to the Central Bank (Hamilton).

        So the “original construction” does lend to the modern era errors. Within the acorn is the mighty oak.

        It is those who interpret the laws, not those who write the laws that hold the power. This is the reason that it will always be “government by men” and not “government by laws”.

        I think you already know my view: Government is a Racket.

    Underscoring the breadth of research discoveries in recent years, I sometimes wonder where the course of the case would’ve gone if, in 1964, the WC had been a true investigation and things like this showed up in the media alongside Oswald and the rifle on the cover of Life:

    o a press release calling for a Congressional investigation of the alleged assassin – three months before Dallas by an anti-Castro Cuban student group that was formed, funded and guided by the CIA https://jfkfacts.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Bringueir-PR-082163.jpg

    o a memo from top CIA officials to the Mexico City station that Russia had a “maturing effect” on Oswald, never mentioning his adventures in NO and resulting in his removal from the FBI security watch list http://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=1565&relPageId=3

    o tapes of phone taps into the Russian embassy in Mexico City showing someone impersonating Oswald and confirming a meeting with a KGB head of wet operations for the hemisphere http://www.history-matters.com/archive/jfk/lbjlib/phone_calls/Nov_1963/html/LBJ-Nov-1963_0029a.htm

    o the removal of a top CIA officer who had been tasked with investigating the agency who had believed the agents and anti-Castro Cubans connected to the JM/WAVE station in Miami demanded further inquiry. He also believed Angleton, the third in command of the agency, had close ties to the mob: http://www.history-matters.com/archive/jfk/hsca/secclass/Scelso_5-16-78/html/Scelso_0001a.htm

    o the CIA had been trying to whack Castro using Johnny Roselli, best buddies with Bill Harvey, head of the agency’s executive assassination program

    As Lynyrd Skynyrd sang, “Ooo, that smell.”
