[ Editor’s note: Those who don’t understand what the death of this man means need to wake up. Scalia took the judiciary from constitutional oversight to a new height of interventionism and corruption. Scalia’s real clients, other than his Koch masters, were the Belgian pedophile rings that infiltrated Washington and the Pentagon during the 1980s — a series of Satanic cults and the international drug cartels.
