US Senate Must Stand Firm Against A Forced Obama SCOTUS Nominee
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
The United States Senate must stand firm. They cannot approve any nominee by President Barack Obama to replace Justice Scalia. Justice Scalia was a strong voice on the U.S. Supreme Court for originalism, a strong voice for saying the Constitution means exactly what it says and the justices have no authority to go outside of the Constitution. If Obama nominates someone and the Senate approves that nomination, then the Supreme Court will ultimately tilt away from the Constitution for decades.
Mat Staver: Matt, this is a critical moment in history. I never would have thought that Scalia would predecease some of the other justices on the Supreme Court. We have Scalia at 79 years of age, other than being overweight, he seemed otherwise relatively healthy. He’s actually out on a hunting trip. He is someone who travels around the country and even around the world.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the other hand is 82 years of age and has not been, over the last several years, in good health. So she was the one that everyone, if you were going to think which one would predecease it would have been Ginsburg, not Scalia. so it’s a real shock that Scalia’s the one who predeceased. Ginsburg is 82, Kennedy is 79, about ready to turn 80 early this year, in 2016. And then Breyer is 78 years of age…
Matt Barber: Well, and what’s shocking, the reports are that the Feds, who are investigating this, have said that there will be no autopsy. And Justice Scalia was allegedly, he was apparently found in his bed with a pillow over his face. . .I’m not going to join along with the conspiracy buffs and say that somebody took him out. But there are certainly circumstances here that would warrant an autopsy.
