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. 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.
The animosity between Justice Scalia and the Obama White House was well known. Scalia considered the Obama administration to be a scourge upon the Constitutional-based tenets of the American form of government. The Obama White House in turn privately viewed Scalia as a legal “dinosaur” who was horribly out of place amidst the ongoing “fundamental transformation” the Obama regime was pushing for the country.
Scalia famously blasted the administration for such critical acts as Obamacare, illegal immigration, states rights, and executive authority.
Now Mr. Obama and his team of trusted advisers, led personally by Valerie Jarrett, are preparing to proceed with their choice to be Justice Scalia’s replacement and intend to bludgeon Republicans should the Republican-controlled Senate refuse to give that appointment the legislative light of day.
Media contacts have been employed, and soon a roll-out campaign will be forthcoming.
It is the very thing Mr. Obama excels most at – highly divisive politics and near-constant self-promotion. He intends to see the balance of power shifted on the Court to more fully express his will and view of what the United States should, and should not be.
War is once again brewing in D.C., and Barack Obama is reportedly thrilled over it.
