I dunno...Rehnquist was certainly conservative enough, but then again old-fashioned conservative. I'm not certain he could have ever been coerced to embrace the liberal social agenda of the NWO, like abortion, gay issues, population control.
Hard to say. Bush is already firmly in control of a majority on the Supreme Court. Could have been natural causes. The guy was eighty.
Then again, Rehnquist might have been a thorn in the side of any martial law grab for power...he was unpredictable on those sorts of constitutional issues.
Think he already did, remember this...



Bush v. Gore, 531 U.S. 98 (2000), was a controversial U.S. Supreme Court case heard on December 11, 2000. The decision directly affected the result of the 2000 presidential election because it stopped the statewide recount that was occurring in Florida and allowed Florida to certify George W. Bush the winner for the State of Florida. With Florida's 25 electoral votes, Bush had enough electoral votes to win the Presidency.

In three separate opinions, seven justices found that a ballot recount then being conducted in certain counties in Florida was to be stopped due to lacking a consistent standard, while two disagreed. A 5-4 majority further declared, a per curiam opinion, that there was insufficient time to establish standards for a new recount that would meet Florida's deadline for certifying electors.
