I wonder if this 'Malta Taxidermy Federation' takes it's name from the Knights of Malta, of which Scalia was a member.

Knights of Malta???


Could be a general disclaimer to get away from any possibilities that they may have "taxidermy'd" Humans !!!

I remember some movie about hunting humans and they found heads in jars.

Getting away from the room, I found something (un?)related:


The St. Hubert’s Hunters (KSU) have terminated their affiliation with the hunting federation FKNK. In a brief statement issued on Thursday, FKNK chief executive Lino Farrugia said that KSU “did not see any benefit from the continuation” of their affiliation with the federation.

He added that the Executive Guns & Ammo Shooting Club and the Malta Taxidermy Federation have now become affiliate members of the FKNK.

KSU president Mark Mifsud Bonnici told MaltaToday that his organisation actually left the FKNK in September last year but originally felt no reason to publicise their decision. However, they will issue a statement later on today to explain the reasons behind the termination of their affiliation.

“It was a matter of choice,” Mifsud Bonnici said. “We have always been a small organisation that enjoyed a good reputation and will remain that way.”


St Hubert’s Hunters leave hunting federation

I don't know, maybe this is reaching too much?

But it was announced the day before Justice Scalia's death.


MALTA Taxidermy Association
Knights of Malta???


Yeah, now you know why my eyebrow raised...

A detail about the room:

On that Jay the lawyers blog (there is a link a few pages back I think) I read that when Poindexter and "the lawyer friend" couldn't get Scalia to answer his locked door....they entered his room through an outside sliding glass door.

Poindexter has spoken with great detail about EVERYTHING, yet he doesn't mention having to get a key to unlock said glass door. Nor does he say anything about breaking the door. That leads me to believe it was already unlocked.

Minor detail: there is no electricity in the lodge (or at least in the guest rooms). They use oil lamps and gas fireplaces.

I read on a Yelp review that the doors didn't have locks.

Now that you say this, I feel like I recall the same...Poindexter knocked and had to get a key or something...

I'll try to dig that up.

Poindexter is apparently unmarried, but he is photographed at many functions with a Houston socialite by the name of Claudia Craft...nee Claudia Craft Huthnance.

Who would want to date him? Yuck.






The man has major money. Women would be falling all over him.


Not this one. Nope....no way, no how. I would want someone of character. Someone who isn't too bad looking and has the guts to stand up for what's right no matter what. Good sense of humor would be a plus.

I know this is off topic, but I kind of think Alex Jones is cute.


I'm not talking about you or me, LOL! Some high-maintenance gold diggers, girl!

Anyway, was he ever married?

I do think we all wouldn't be as far down this rabbit hole if Poindexter hadn't worn that tie during the press conference. So...I'd like to say "Thank you, Mr. Poindexter!"


Who, Alex? From what I heard he is recently divorced.

As for Poindexter, all I can say is he is very.........disgust.....er, interesting!

From Yelp:

"Absolutely everything is spot on about this place. It's gorgeous, the service is flawless and the grounds are beautiful.

Get the meal plan. The food is incredible. They will accommodate just about any dietary needs.

There are activities like horseback riding, site seeing and paddle boating. And of course there is plenty of relaxation to be had.

Spend the money, it's well worth it. There is a very communal feeling here (group dining and no locks on the doors) which makes it even more relaxing."

See my last comment from Yelp. It sounds like there were no locks on the doors. I guess that should be clarified.

When Alex Jones' crew went there last week they said no locks were on the doors. Only a latch one could fasten once inside the room. In other words, let's say you leave the room to go hunting for a few hours. You would have no way to lock up.

How anyone could be safe under those circumstances, I don't know, except that you'd have to leave at least two people in a room at all times. Bring your own food. Water, Even soap.

Any place that would make me go through all that performance isn't worth staying at, no matter how nice the surroundings are.

I just had a thought. After mentioning the gas fireplace.....there is a possiblity that someone could have gased him.

Just a thought.

Being w/o locks on my doors would make me feel less than "relaxed." Just sayin.'

No way in hell would I stay any where without locks. Especially with a door leading directly outside. Nope.

Well, that is an interesting and diabolical thought. No locks...just walk right in and turn on the gas.

Unbelievable! I wonder if Scalia knew how unsecure this place would be. Here we have...a sitting Supreme Court Justice going to a remote place he had never visited before without the usual U.S. Marshalls accompanying him during a time when several highly controversial matters are pending before the SC. On top of that, there will be 30+ strangers there. Something is just so out of the ordinary that it defies understanding.

No locks would bother me, too. How are you going to get it on without wondering if someone could accidentally walk right in your room. Clearly I have nothing valuable, so that's what leapt to my mind.

Oh, and pooping & undressing! How are you going to feel comfortable pooping and undressing?

Here is a review I found on Trip Advisor. Most of the reviews were good, but I chose, for the heck of it, to peruse the bad ones. Here's one of them. Pay special attention to the last part that is highlighted:


“Not Perfect”
2 of 5 starsReviewed July 5, 2012

We were there a couple of months ago, and were very displeased with our experience. The mostly positive reviews puzzle me. First, I totally believe that the facility is beautiful and interesting. We rode horseback after a bit of a dispute, we hiked a bit, and we generally enjoyed the facility. But the food was certainly not the best.

We thought the rooms were pretty, but we were not happy with the staff. The lower level people were indeed very nice and tried to do anything we asked, which wasn't much. However, between meals, they seemed to be constantly moving for a smoke break right along the pathway to our room The office and management people seemed completely ambivalent about our presence, had to be reminded of arrangements we had made along with our reservation, and were the only hotel staff I have ever experienced that made us literaly feel unwelcome.

After raving about their beautiful dining room on the first night of our stay, the next night we were all relegated to the breakfast room because they had a movie-related group come in who they put alone in the dining room (it was not a space problem, and no famous movie stars to shield). After reminding them that we had arranged for a horseback ride, they dug around and found the "note", but then we had to explain again what we had requested. Then just before the ride, a staff member and the manager informed us, for the first time, that we had to wear a 2" heel or no ride. I have several pairs of western boots, but not a 2" heel in the bunch. After we were thoroughly irritated, they offered a compromise but not per our original arrangement.

On a couple of occasions during meals and social hours, the manager would lock in on some guests who were of interest to him for whatever reason and literally not acknowledge us standing or sitting near him. At any high-end property that I've visited, all guests feel as though they have the highest, and same, priority with hotel managment even if you don't. Normally, one wouldn't socialize with hotel managment at all, but here they seem to consider it part of the ambiance. Certainly in the context of the chain motels, this place does not deserve two stars, but in the context of high-end resorts, we thought that the staff attitude was shocking.

Oh, and don't forget that the first thing they greet you with when you arrive out in the middle of nowhere is a complete liability release, which of course they failed to mention before you arrived in the middle of nowhere. So, sign or have fun looking for a motel in Presidio or Marfa. And yes, we've been to lots of other outdoor, adventure locations without that treatment. They may bury it in their fine print, but it again shows a very different attitude.

Stayed April 2012, traveled as a couple
