"Qualified to lead us in this type of position. Absolutely. So even before judge Jackson was named as the nominee, people were wasting no time lobbying these completely ridiculous, unfair sexist attacks on her, just we don't even know who she is. She was just a hypothetical person. Senator John Kennedy, he told Politico, I want a nominee who knows a law book from a J crew catalog. I want a nominee who is not going to try to rewrite the constitution every other Thursday to advance a woke agenda. And he was saying this, we didn't even know who this person was yet, and they were already lobbying these racist sexist attacks. Like, why do you assume that she's not going to know what a legal brief from a j.crew catalog? Reading between the lines that is obviously meant to be a sexist swipe because Biden had already expressed his intentions to nominate a black woman. Why do you assume this person is going to be pushing a woke agenda and what does that even mean? I think when you really pull apart some of these dog whistles that are used, it just reveals itself as unfair attacks rooted in identity or just complete hypocrisy. Like just like what you were saying, were you referencing Lindsey Graham who was I think it was literal. So I've been up working on this since like all day, right? So I watched the announcement come in. I watched all the responses. Lindsey Graham tweeted literally minutes after she was announced saying, quote, the radical left had won over Biden. Yet Graham also voted to confirm judge Jackson to the D.C. federal appeals court, which is the second most important court in the country, just 8 months ago, this past summer. So which is it? Is this a win for the woke left? And what was different? 8 months earlier when you voted to confirm her. So it was just very interesting. At this point, I wouldn't even like the hypocrisy is so clear that it's almost sort of like not worth pointing out. It's like, of course, you are only interested in a bad faith assessment, you know, you don't even expect people to look back at your own voting record to see where you actually stand on this issue. You're just counting on people not actually spending a little bit of time thinking about what you're saying. Right. Yeah. We're both shaking our head with frowns. It's true though. It's so frustrating because it's like, every time I point out something that's hypocritical, it doesn't matter anymore. They're like, yeah, it is. I mean, essentially, it's kind of what we were talking about when Amy Barrett Cohen was confirmed as well as Kavanaugh about the ridiculous hypocrisy that happened between Obama and administration and the Trump administration. And now we're back again. Now we're here again to the same conversation. And literally half of the Republican candidates or the conservative politicians will agree. Yeah, this is hypocritical. This is what we do. And they kind of just leave it at that. And assume that nobody will notice and typically people who are already dug their hills in, don't notice. Won't notice, because they want what they want, and whatever agenda it is, they have planted themselves firmly in. But yeah, let's talk about the fact this is a whole different conversation. But that we have different types of terms and words like woke that have been used as a positive, has now flipped so hard to a negative that everyone is automatically like, oh, he said it, he's right, it's bad. Oh my gosh, I could talk all day, I'll just say, so I have two things to say about this. One is that you are so right. There are so many words that have just become meaningless, right? So if you're talking about a hypothetical Supreme Court nominee, and you're like, oh, we don't want somebody who's awoke. You don't know anything. This person is a hypothetical person, so you're not, you don't know anything about their record. You don't know anything about where they stand on the issues. So saying woke, it almost just the only thing we know about this person is that she's going to be a black woman. You're saying you don't want someone who is woke. Reading between the lines, you're using that as a stand in for the word black, right? And so I think that we see that time and time again where these words become stand ins for identity and they also kind of become meaningless, right? Like cancel culture is another one. I remember reading, this is sort of silly, but there was this story a while ago where this guy who had been running a race horse in The Kentucky Derby, his racehorse had been, I don't know, I'm sure there's more details to it, but essentially his racehorse had been drug tested and he had been found to have drugs and a system so he was disqualified. And then an interview he was like, oh, this is cancel culture strikes again. And I was like, what are you even talking about? How are these cancel culture? In what way you got caught? Yeah, you got caught. Dope in your horse and your horse was disqualified. That's not cancel culture. Even I just have a lot of questions about the way that these words are being used. But I think and that's kind of the second point that I want to make about this is that one of the reasons why I am so adamant about things like this information misinformation and just having a healthier, more honest conversation and immediate landscape the facilitates those kinds of conversations is that we are no longer able to have substantive thoughtful conversations about the issue when our ecosystem is flooded with bad faith clearly hypocritical rhetoric and discourse. And so, you know, even if you're someone, let's say that you're listening and you are very conservative, you probably have hated this conversation that we've been having. But even if you're someone who is very conservative, you deserve to be able to, you know, talk about your issues, have a substantive conversation and a substantive debate about where you stand on the issues. And so I believe that when the discourse and the space is just flooded with charged rhetoric, where we're talking about race or identity, but using different words, everybody loses because you're not able to have a substantive conversation about where you might agree or disagree with the Supreme Court nominee, right? And so I think that that's my biggest issue is that we have a media ecosystem that really amplifies the most extreme, the most over the top statements, or the most nonsense statements. And so everybody loses Democrat Republican conservative, lefty, whoever, everybody loses when we have an ecosystem that amplifies the least substantive takes because that takes away from the ability to have an actual substantive thoughtful debate or conversation about the actual issues. And so I don't want to create the conditions for judge Jackson to only be judged by racist sexist tropes or caricatures or unfair attacks because I want to talk about her actual credentials. I want to talk about her actual record. I want to talk about her actual character, but disinformation and misinformation does not allow for the actual issues to take the center stage that they should. Right. You just kind of explain my whole conversation with my parents over the holidays. But we won't get into that right now. Just go and put that there. It was interesting. But you know, and I'm thinking about this because when we talk about these terms and automatically just becoming used by media as an ecosystem to bring in the shock value, it makes me also realize that in terms of what they're talking about in woke, it is a black term that was created by the black community to kind of gift non black people with, hey, you woke up. Congratulations. You're finally seeing what we have been going through all of our generations. Welcome, you have woke. That's kind of that term. And I hate that it has been weaponized to this point of being used against people. And when they're using it, when Kennedy used this, he was weaponizing this term to a woman to an official to a judge to a professional who didn't need to be woke. She was already there. This was her life and not only that, if we do look at her backgrounds and credentials, she has been doing this work. There's no conversation I've heard being woke. She just is. So with that because I'm angry about this. Can.

We have not done amy barrett because we are waiting for her to get a couple more decisions under her belt so we can actually look at her pattern of decisions like we do with the other justices that we've done and since she doesn't have a judicial like a traditional judicial career even pre becoming a supreme court justice. It's not like we can look at her many past opinions pre bench. You know what. I mean right right so we're just giving. It's not that we're not doing her. We are absolutely going to do her. Were just giving her more time but lead time to grow likely to grow the meantime we thought we would start looking at you. Know key famous infamous. Justices of history's passed and no better place to start then. Sandra day o'connor herself. Sandra o'connor the first woman elected to the supreme court. Yeah let your rally. First woman to the supreme court really interesting life really interesting voting patterns. We're going to look at some of the cases that she wrote the opinion on. And yeah i like i think she was a different kind of conservative. Like this is that. I got yes. Sandra the sandra conservative not does not exist on our current bench. I think the closest thing maybe. And it's a big. Maybe is john. Roberts but even think is quite a sandra day o'connor concerned about it so interesting okay cool but yeah so before we jump in the sources today are coming from obviously heavily from our favorite place on earth. Oh yeah oh yeah oh yea yea agree to subsites ever to exist. I love as we say this every time and best. It's literally like coming home every time we get to talk about.

You know yeah not that. They probably couldn't if they had wanted to you. But it's just it's interesting. I think it's interesting so continuing on her education. This fact is insane. At age sixteen.

"6 80 wcbm. Get ready for the real deal. Baltimore time Now for the Tom Moore Show more show again clear for big topics this week. First of all, the what happened yesterday happened today. This deathless supposedly demonstration at the Capitol supporting the January 6th rioters. I mean, the Capitol police were there. The National Guard was on standby. The Who knows always there. As you looked at, you saw pictures of it. It looked like prisons in this in this country probably didn't have as much security around them as the capital did, And you're like, you know, it looked like like 100. People maybe showed up there talking about thousands or tens of thousands 100 people I think showed up 150. Maybe I don't know some small number like that. They were far far more security people than they were supporters. Does this mean that Trump support is waning? Or is this just just a one off? Second thing that did you guys see this morning? BOSTON Baltimore Sun? There's a great op ED COLUMN. Amy Barrett remember her Supreme Court justice, who was pushed through by by McDonald McDonald just at the end of the Trump administration, she's writes. It gives a speech at McConnell's Conference center, and he says, she says, I am concerned that people think the Supreme Court is biased. The Supreme Court is partisan. Gee, what a surprise. Let's see. They killed the moratorium on rent rent, uh, saving on rent. They would not stand up to the to the Texas Legislature when they basically banned abortions in In Texas. I don't know, man. It's a surprise. She's basically and the Supreme Court. Quite frankly, is basically the Mitch McConnell court. They're basically doing whatever he wants. Now the third big thing that's been in the news. A lot is the fact that General Milley terror German of the chief joints, uh, call his counterpart, his Chinese counterpart and basically said, Hey, look at we're not going to attack you with what? Don't worry about because apparently there was some some Intel that said that Chinese were kind of gearing up a little bit in case the United States where to attack them or do something, so He basically called him said, Look, We're not doing anything I get. All of this was because of concern. About what he called the competence of trump after the election, which which, by the way 78% of Republicans still believe that trump one man, I tell you, I'm not sure planet they're living on. And then we've got to talk about the last four big issue is is the thousands of people supposedly from Haiti, Haiti island. How do they get to the border? But let's say thousands, they said 15,000 or some number like that. Of Haitians are now this southern border and under some bridge, and the question is immigration. Whatever we want to talk about this, the first thing you want to go to is the big splash down of the The civilian space program from uh, with Mark so mark, let's go to mark and talk about space program market. Welcome to the show. I guess. A good evening so good to bench of what did to my main point about the space shuttle?

People had that copy The constant state of Karl Marx, the Communist manifesto in this country. I'll just leave it at that. Okay, That's fine, okay? Your reaction to the space that the civilians in space? What's your? What's your reaction? Well, first of all, I was very happy for the first time in American history that I know of. We set up four. None because anal astronaut one is a geophysicist. I believe three. I'm not sure what the rankings for what they do.

"Dealt with these arguments already, and it's it's It's horrific and it's and it's bad for me because I again I have to be the bearer of bad news. Yeah, and that's what makes it difficult for me. And and then and then people get upset at me, and then I will do something Do you want me to do? I got to work within the realms of the law, and I hear the argument of what people volunteered to join the military. Well, you know, no one put a gun to my hand to join the border Patrol. Yeah, You know, that's there's there's now the difference is, if the if the military Refuses to get course they get court martialed. Yeah, you know. Agents get fired, and what we're looking so far is they would have you know if if you don't have a religious exemption, and you don't have a medical exemption You will be terminated based on failure to meet the condition of your employment. Now, the argument that I've gotten With the condition of the employment. The the employee, uh, description or the job description has changed. From when I joined the patrol, Really? What, but it's they can change that, based on Changes within the law or changes within this being, You know the pandemic and all that issues so they can change it, and now they're giving you the opportunity. To either stay or leave. Hey, we're changing this Now You have to get this vaccine. If you still don't want it. You don't have to get it. But you can't stay here. They're not. I mean and so Again, people and listeners, especially agents that listen to the show. You guys need to hear what I'm telling you guys, I do not agree with it. The National Border Patrol Council. The individuals have spoken to don't agree with it. But is it lawful? Is it within the law? Are they allowed to do it by ball? And the answer is yes, we've seen We've seen the same thing with Tucson fire that has also not been very happy with this mandate as well. And they've been challenging it as well. And it doesn't Doesn't look like it's been that good. A push for them. No, it's not. And because that that's the way it unfortunately it is. And you have to realize when you know the law is the law. Now people have come up and I'm just throwing up all the all the back and forth that I've had to deal with His. What challenge the law. Okay? So This has been pushed. To the Supreme Court. Uh, Supreme Court Judge Amy Barrett, I believe is the one that looked at it. She didn't even bother to hear the case. It was last in the court of Appeals, and she didn't even hear the case. So now That Provides the case Law. Now, speaking to very good attorneys, right, not, you know, just Run of the mill. You know, attorneys got their degree off of Facebook. But speaking with actual good attorneys, and that as I spoke earlier, you know, we've spoken to the NGPC trainees, F G attorneys and several outside Uh, Offerman's that are Top of the line. They have said. There is no case that you can file And if you file I mean, if they say we tell them well filed it anyway. It's called, You know pretty much I call it a feel good filing, right. Makes you feel good. File it anyway. It's cars there. Go filed it. Well, but It's not called a feel good file. It's called the frivolous case. There you go. And if On attorney does a frivolous case knowing it's a frivolous case, and there's no lawful win out of it. Now they can face sanctions. Through the bar. Because they're filing stuff that they know is frivolous. They could be holding this up, right? Yeah, they could be in trouble. Yep. Top attorneys were not going to allow themselves to get in trouble with frivolous cases. Now. The question has been active. Asked every question you can think of, and you have grasped that every straw that I could think of grasping it and and try to answer all the questions that I've had two agents can get it. Now I've said Can we find just a regular attorney to file And they said You could probably fine. Some back alley attorney that will probably charge you know. 30 to $50,000 to file the case. And knowing that it's frivolous in you, it's not going to go anywhere. But where do you find the judge? That's willing to hear it exactly. So that's your second obstacle. Now somebody will get the money. They'll write it up and say I got it just no one can know wants to listen to it. It's kind of like the I think there's one another show that came out out of talking about border issues is or at least they're trying to somewhere in California and I mean, yeah, It's great that they have another show going, but, uh, no one's listening to you. So You can't do nothing with it with the dagger. You can't do it. You can't do anything with it. It was listening to, you know, wants to hear what you got to say. And that's how this it's. It's. It's so frustrating, though, and I have had to field so many phone calls and the phone calls that I have filled it. I've been on the phone for close to an hour with each individual. They're this really makes people angry, and I know there's there's a side that says I don't get it. Just get the shot. But then this is what you're putting in your body, and if they don't want to do it, this is going to anger them even more. It is. I spoke to one um, young lady. That is an agent. And she said Look, art, I would probably get the shot. Yeah, I just I just don't think that now. I don't want to because they're telling me I have to. Yeah. And in. That's what I think. Frustrating. I mean, that's that's what's frustrating. It's It's just.

If you have money you will get your counselor in the next few weeks. But if you don't have money you're going on a long regionalist would've been writing saying that. The need of counseling is changed. Even after the court case because the outcome that puts you in a whole different mindset. I need to start again and maybe walk through.

We spoke you kinda said look you know dead got punished and and that's fine but you were left pretty much. Defend yourself i was. I suppose like. I had said before that the support that we gosh in the court and even the whole reporting to the guards everything was just really good but unfortunately not every victims experiences as good as as ours was and then after the court case i just felt like why can't the care. Just continue on after. It's like you're just dropped. I felt dropped. I felt like okay. You have to find my own way now. Find my own counseling. It just and then as well after the court case you're left with eating whatever has come back up to surface fire you and that's stressful enough in itself. Besides having to go and find a counselor for yourself at a low cost as well because not everyone can afford that fifty to seventy euros per session and the thing is like you said and you've said it before you get great support you at least got great support jury the court case for which you will forever be grateful but then it's over and you've got to deal with the aftermath and there's nothing there you gotta find.

"Of hospitals. The american people. Though i think have had enough if one paul is to be believed right now most americans even think joe biden resign. Michael michael knowles show back to the show. My favorite coming yesterday from jacqueline word. Who said classrooms shouldn't be like teachers where they can hang whatever ridiculous stuff. I'll clean it up. Whatever ridiculous stuff. They feel like whatever happened to the times tables and the alphabet. Thank you yes. These teachers who were hanging the pride progress flag or the anti flag even. They seem to think that the classroom is just their fiefdom in which they can do whatever they want. And in part this is because of a misguided understanding of what is called academic freedom that now even the right defends the left kind of pushed it. But even the right defends it and it's just completely preposterous. The third reich. Classroom is not a free marketplace of ideas and never has been and it should not be and it never will be if it's a place to teach kids basic so i absolutely agree with your point. I wish not only the left but conservatives would wake up wish they could hear the truth and if you wanna hear the truth if you want to hear. Just good music. I'd recommend checking out your cons. I love ray cons. They are a better product than some of the other brands on the market. All right i'm gonna. I'm gonna try to be nice about it but you know.

Four because of course chief justice john roberts sided with the libs and the decision was not over the constitutionality of the law. The decision was whether or not to grant abortionists in texas a special emergency Halting of of the new pro-life law so thankfully the five at least sort of conservative justices. Thomas thomas certainly conservative alito certainly conservative. Gorsuch a little squishy or cavanaugh. Little a lot swisher and amy barrett a lot squish year but all five of them to their great credit voted in favor of allowing the texas law. Go into effect. This is a very very important decision. Then you had the three lives really the four libs. Because chief justice john roberts was there and he. He voted to to stop the law. One small point. On john roberts before we get into what this like. She does john. Roberts is whole purpose. I believe is that he wants to maintain the institutional credibility of the court is. He's the chief justice so he has a responsibility not just to the decisions but also to the institution itself and so. I think what john roberts is trying to do here is saying that. He's above politics because he will often vote with the liberals. Ironically what what. The effect of his neck nations had been is to make the court seem much much more party political to make the court carts seem much less principled. He has ironically destroyed the institutional credibility of the court because he's very clearly just picking his side based on the poll numbers based on the politics based on. What he thinks will be able to placate the people rather than upholding kind of constitutional principle but the principle upheld at least in this decision the texas law which was passed in may bands all abortions in the state after around six weeks of pregnancy. The law is not based on some arbitrary timetable. You know six weeks in one day and it's a human being but six weeks minus one day five weeks and six days and it's actually not a human being. The law is based on when you can detect a heartbeat and you can detect a heartbeat very early because these are human beings so because a lot of women don't even know they're pregnant six weeks. The law effectively makes abortion illegal. Now how does this law operate. There have been plenty of heartbeat bills and they'd been struck down by various courts. So what makes this this law little different. The law allows private citizens to sue abortionists. And anyone else who helps a woman to obtain an abortion including some sicko dude who gives the woman a ride to the clinic or provides financial assistance for the abortion. The citizens can bring these suits even if they don't have any connection to the people that they are suing beyond their relationship as citizens if they win in the lawsuits one titles them to a minimum of ten.

"And we're back and so good news. The fda approved the pfizer vaccine. Which i didn't know we were waiting for. But apparently that makes it possible for companies and institutions to start mandating the vaccine the pentagon has moved to immediately make the vaccine requirement for all one point four million active duty servicemembers which i have to have to imagine. That's going to be a big. You know a big shift. United airlines Will make it a requirement for employees show proof vaccination within five weeks I can't i. I think this is the only way that we start making progress right because i mean you know it's it's it's something it just feels like. It just feels everything. Feels like a drop in the bucket. 'cause like my first thought would have been like wait. We don't have our servicemen and our airline people vaccinated already like that. Of course. i thought we did that. I thought that was step one. It was just like you know. And then you realize like i mean we've got so many people to go but it just feels like drop in the bucket. What about all the millions of people who are either you know not able to get like easy access to the vaccine or the people who are just like you know. They've been red builds by you know idiots online and just refuse to get it so i i don't know i think it's a good first step like it makes it harder to like for someone to then be able to like you know reject it and keep their job. Because we saw you know amy barrett like ruled with the side of indiana university to be like now they can mandate a vaccine for students. Like that's were. I have we not prolong. Yeah i'm not. I'm not getting involved with that and yeah in this. I'm sure just gives people especially you know employers more cover and i think on some level hopefully right. There's a psychological effect people will begin to embrace it because like you're saying earlier the whole like well good luck taking an experimental vaccine not even proved those are now. Those talking points are now moot because when you look at it like the vaccine has been approved. They didn't change anything there. Like in the state that they've been giving it to people we approve. It's not like they're hitting us with pfizer two point. No the fucking that's been approved but yeah it is a curious thing because you'd hope that for people that were saying are so adamant about like well. I'm just worried about. It's not fda approved. I can understand if you have year around it. I can respect that but then pivot to some other shit and you start bringing up. George soros cover this whole time because really this is a philosophical thing that you're engaged in not anything to do with like what the actual scientific knowledge is. There's this thread from a doctor who just like kind of described how he deals with people who are vaccine and it was just. It's kind of a link off to the footnotes but it's it just would felt like something to aspire to because my experience with people who are vaccine hesitant. I have not been patient hard. It's been very counterproductive. Low.

"Happening of news all week long. So what's coming up at seven o'clock aaron while the. Us supreme court told eight indiana university students. No so they had. There was a big debate over school vaccine. Mandates and the supreme court supreme court now weighing in on the fight refusing to block indiana university's requirement. That students must be vaccinated to attend classes. This fault amy barrett yesterday denied their challenge. And that's that so. Does that mean it wasn't even heard right because it would have gone on for a long time. They denied it well. It means that you've got to be vaccinated to go to i. You know what i mean. The court case like it didn't even get to be heard really. Yeah on grounds. So that's kind of interesting and then you've got of course here in broward county school district.

She has her show on fire island in new york. So you're in the neighborhood. Go check that out. You know there is a headline in here. That i'm probably not gonna go into depth on too much. But trump has appealed the house oversight committee ruling for years now. We had two things trying to get his taxes right. We had the ms ours. I should say the maziarz documents we had the house. Oversight committee subpoenaed them and then we had the house ways and means committee that subpoenaed them the house ways and means committee is the one where the law says that the irs shall furnish. That's just for the house ways and means committee that is not the law for the oversight committee and so the judge. Recently as we know yesterday decided they could have trump's maziarz documents related to his dc downtown hotel and potential emoluments but only while he was in office and as we expected. Trump has appealed that ruling so that will probably go up to the next level. We will see although amy barrett today decided that the supreme court was not going to hear the indiana university vaccine case brought by that guy who brought citizens united member. How we were worried about that. So you know. I guess a we shred of understanding the actual law presented by. Amy conybeare it today. So indiana university will be allowed to mandate vaccines. That's a big decision going forward in. I as i'm sure we would have seen and we'll see probably future cases but now we have a little bit of precedent on that. Although it doesn't really set precedent to not hear a case you know you know what. I'm saying you know what i mean anyway. We have a lot.

"amy barrett" Discussed on Slate's Double X Gabfest
"Take action. Today a few months ago. I was talking to mary. Ziglar about amy barrett's. Mary's fantastic professor of law at florida state university. She covers abortion law and abortion history and she told me that she thinks amy barrett wants to be perceived as a serious intellectual. That emmy conybeare doesn't want to be perceived as a sort of instrumental transactional votes dot republicans sort of crammed onto the court at the last minute to further their agenda that she is a really brilliant person who wants to be perceived as an independent neutral thoughtful 'institutionalised and for that reason she wasn't going to be in a rush to affect her own agenda which would include probably ending the right to an abortion. Now mary send out to me just a few weeks before. The supreme court took up a case that is a direct challenge to roe versus wade which the court will hear next term and may well use to end the constitutional right to abortion with a makoni. Barrett's vote as potentially decisive one. But i still think that. Mary was onto something there. And this is really informed my own view. I do think that barrick cares about how she perceived unlike somebody like. Sam leader neil gorsuch. Who truly do not care how the press and the public think about them. I do think that bear wants to be seen as kind of professorial thoughtful. Maybe understated but quietly brilliant jurist. I don't know though if that's the person we've seen in action over the last nine months on the bench. And i'm very curious what you think i do. Think that what was seen as resounding statesmanship and centrism was barrett's decision to write a concurrence in what ended up being a nine zero decision. That looked as though. Hey the courts not making any definitive claims about this balancing of religious liberty on the one hand civil rights on the other. It looked like that was happening. And what barrett gut feted for was the centrist moderate concurrence. She wrote saying. I'm not going to overturn a decades old president. That's what she did. She got feted as you've been saying throughout for not doing the thing that people thought she was going to do and then instead of saying well. Okay a is. You're saying why was that strategic and be. Did she effectively do that. In the shadow docket anyway in the cova places. We're just sitting here saying man. She's no different from our bg. And i think that is a function of as we've said from the beginning you know the way we do confirmation hearings unfortunately on both sides is a lot of sort of sky is falling projections about what's going to happen. And when that doesn't materialize it's like. Hey maybe she really is for the adoptive same sex parents in this case which is like absolutely materially not true but i think that there is a very very cartoonish sense still going into next term when abortion as you say is on the chopping blog that if amy conybeare it doesn't right. The sentence roe v wade is overturned. She will have been a moderate. And that's just the way we construct the narrative around the court. And i think you. And i have said and i started by saying this. This is a person who doesn't believe in precedent doesn't believe that roe was correctly decided has said this much has said this should go to the states to decide doesn't isn't willing to say griswold versus connecticut is super precedent and binding. She doesn't have to write. The sentence are roe v. Wade is unconstitutional and here and overturned in order for abortion to be fundamentally inaccessible in the many many states where there is only one clinic and so i think that we've just yet again set this up as a game that she can only win and then when she does the tiniest faints to. Hey today in fulton. I'm not overturning. A nineteen ninety case that we say like man she loves. Those adoptive same sex parents philadelphia. Yes so okay. So let's flush out the case. So this makes more sense right. So fulton versus philadelphia's a case about a catholic social services agency that participates in philadelphia's foster care system and specifically here works to screen and certify prospective foster parents to tell the city. Hey these folks will be good parents. They check all these boxes. They should be able to foster and this agency refuses to work with same sex couples. They don't like them. They don't believe in their marriage and so on. They say we will not screen are certify. Same sex couples. The city of philadelphia says okay. Well the problem here is that by turning away. Prospective foster parents you would be shrinking. The pool of loving homes in which children can be placed. So we're going to let your contract expire and not give you more taxpayer dollars to discriminate against same sex couples and in fact it's our policy. It's a rule. It's our law that all of our contractors have to treat. Lgbtq people equally the supreme court comes in and says actually no philadelphia violated the free exercise clause when it ended this contract but did so on a really bizarre kind of flimsy narrow basis at the supreme court by six to three vote said that in fact the city had a lot of discretion to waive nondiscrimination policies. Even if it didn't exercise that discretion and so this nondiscrimination rule wasn't really generally applicable and so in short the city didn't have a truly compelling interest in enforcing it. That was a dodge as everyone recognized. And i do think you know the barrett concurrence in this case may be the most important opinion of them all right. Because they're joined by cavanaugh. And in part by steven briar. Right separately. To say yeah. I'm going along with majority. I don't love this precedent. That's not so protective of religious liberty decision called employment division versus smith from nineteen ninety. You know. I'm not in love with that decision. I don't know that it's right. But i'm not willing to overturn it yet. I'm not sure what to replace it with. And because of that. Brief decision. Which i did think was somewhat scholarly incited to various various scholarly articles and certainly sounded like something a professor would say that drew a lot of attention to her and like you said dalia made a lot of people applaud on the left and say hey. It's not the apocalypse yet. But she's got at least like thirty more years to either change her mind or take a different route to get to where conservatives want to go and in fact she may have already begun to do that using the shadow daca cases. So it's not clear to me if her concurrence really mattered or whether she was kind of playing. Everybody and manage to help craft a narrative in classic john. Roberts style to make her conservatism. Seemed like centrism. Part of my ongoing beef with supreme court coverage is it as so personality driven the personalities of the justices and whether that was the cultivar. Bg raid the tote bag of vacation of how we think about feminism and progressive activism or the attempt on the right to co-opt the cult of rv g. for justice barrett. I think part of the retired justice briar thing again puts way too much importance on individuals as opposed to systemic change. Right like things that you can do. That are probably in the long term if this is indeed a long game a decades long game as you point out much more effective than harassing individual jurists off the court but i think part of the problem also is that it allied is really complicated questions like voting and so maybe let's end on voting only because all the focus on Barrett and cavanaugh. Are these centrists after all. I think distract so profoundly from what just happened to voting rates. And just to tee it up i will say this is another thing that was happening on the shadow docket long before we got to burn vich we were seeing a orders that were changing. Really really changing doctrinal positions. They didn't necessarily command five oats and change the outcome of the twenty twenty election but we were seeing faints at fundamentally. Changing how states can oversee their own elections happening on the shadow docket and then the term ends with i think to incredibly consequential decisions both six three by the way that really in a systems way that cannot be lashed to anyone justice or their personality or their face on a t. Shirt really really. I think imperils the project of democracy right absolutely. You've got all six justices in berna vich. Dnc the big case of the term. Really gutting the voting rights act and neutering this decades..
"amy barrett" Discussed on What Next | Daily News and Analysis
"Say is kind of like the definition of selfishness. You've alluded to what next term looks like the fact that there's an abortion case. There's a gun rights case and you've publicly worried that even though the justices seem to be taking this brick by brick approach of plucking away rights as they go and sir kicking legs outta tables and watching them fall that they could come in next session and say screw it. Let's be legend. Yes which i loved when you said that But you really think that's going to happen given what you saw this term like that. I knew that there are people who are more moderate than you who were like mark you know this is not going to be that bad but is is the real fear screw it. Let's be legends. Or is it that they just take another brick or two away and we realized in ten years. What legends they were. well why not both There are a lot of rights out there that are very vulnerable at the supreme court. And something. I've tried to stress today. Is this matter of priorities. Of what is at the very top of the list for the conservative justices. And what can wait for a few terms or a few more years. And i think that by taking up this pair of cases the the challenge to roe v wade and the challenge to limits on concealed carry. The conservative justices have revealed to priorities. They really want to overturn roe. And they really want to establish a constitutional right to concealed. Carry and expand the scope of the second amendment. I don't see any other explanation for those moves because remember this time. Last year the supreme court had just turned away a bunch of very similar cases. The gordon turned away. Abortion cases at a turned away gun cases. It had said we're not dealing with these. It's not our priority. And there was great reporting by joan biskupic that revealed the reason why it was because the chief justice more or less said i will not go with you like i will not walk with you down this road to the rest of the conservatives. He said i am not ready for this. This is not what i want yet. Yes this is. Not what i want yet. But now the chief justice has been sidelined and it only takes four votes for the supreme court to hear a case just four and so last year cavanagh gorsuch alito. Thomas did not all vote to take up all those big cases because they knew robert's would not go with them would not walk with them down that road to be the fifth. Vote to actually do what they wanted. Case came to them exactly and this year. Something changed what changed. Rpg was replaced with amy barrett. And so those four votes. That weren't there last year because they were afraid of john. Roberts they suddenly materialized. Because there's no longer a reason to fear. John roberts because barrett is here and there are five ultra conservative votes for these priorities. Well there's another way to see that. Which is that. There are four votes to take the case. There may not be five votes. To rule the way the ultra conservatives want to rule that is a plausible theory but it rests on the four ultra conservatives. Being really naive or ignorant or tactless because again this time last year they said that fifth though isn't here so we're not gonna take up these cases and now they've decided the fifth is here. Do we think that they mis-read someone. Do we think that they're calling it wrong. I don't know i don't know the answer. Maybe yes maybe. We'll be pleasantly surprised next year but it seems to me that if there were four votes to take up these hugely contentious cases then there had to have been some summit behind the scenes there had to have been some conversation where five justices all agreed that they would go the same way on these cases that they would not take this risk without making sure that there was a solid majority to do the work here and to issue that conservative decision that republicans have been dreaming up for decades.

"Looks unconstitutional to anybody. With even a layman's knowledge of past supreme court precedents on abortion is a sign that you know she. She provided the boat. That made it possible to grant sir to take that decision and the others are these cases where religious liberties are at stake on like in the kobe cases where the states were in governors and local officials were imposing restrictions across the board. As kobe cases. We're going up in their areas and she went ruth. Bader ginsburg wins there. The court was voting for five to four to uphold the state deference to the states and localities to make their own decisions about public health. Once amy barrett was from the very first month she was on the court. She flipped those five four decisions because to her with the other conservative the other conservatives religious liberties of churches to be open or do what they want for the most part are more important than deferring to a local and state officials on public health matters. Well jackie let me follow up on the abortion case because this is the case coming out of mississippi that would ban abortion after fifteen weeks very controversial. Obviously as you suggest a lot of people who are pro choice are worried that this is going to be a vehicle to overturn roe. But you were talking. Before about chief justice roberts is jurisprudence and wanting to say it'll be 'incrementalist they close to public opinion. You're suggesting that cavanaugh may share that that view and that style of judging. So what's your best. Guess at this point or informed gas based on your reporting and your analysis of what the court will do. And whether just chief justice roberts will be will want to cobble together a majority to perhaps rollback rogue but but not overturn it. I think that's what they want to do. Which is not. Have a flat-out overturning. Roe or the casey case in nineteen ninety three. I think it was but by these cases like in the mississippi case since it question in in the upcoming term that starts october fifteen week banning abortions. After fifteen weeks. The this gets to the basic question that road dealt with about viability that a woman had a constitutional right to decide. She wanted an abortion up to the point that a fetus was viable and for all the advances in medicine. It's nowhere near fifteen weeks. And so if the court then decides that states can pass those sorts of laws. You'll you know this is the the net result is you're just going to continue to have the court green lighting these laws and restrictions that make abortion all but unavailable to most of the country. And we'll be right back where we were pre roll where women like in my hometown of toledo ohio blue or drove overnight to new york city to get their abortions. And so that's what i think will end up with a no vittoria will wanna get to voting rights so we can argue about it but before we do before we do. We were talking before about surprises. So i want to sort of propose. What for me was my biggest surprise. And that was clarence thomas and marijuana suggesting that it is now time for the federal government to reassess whether it's still makes any sense to ban the use of marijuana when i forget how many states but it's a pretty substantial number at this point including the largest in california have all legalized it. Although i rarely agree with him. That makes clarence thomas. My personal hero for this term. Can't what clarence. Thomas did might be surprising. But the fact that you're bringing up my god bringing up. His case is not at all surprising. Well i jess what should we make of thomas's what was in a concurrence. He wrote that. Yes it was. You know the thing that was that Clarence thomas Has as had you for a long time. In two thousand five. There was a case called race versus gonzalez which dealt with whether the federal controlled substances act would supersede california's than early step toward legalization where the compassionate use act that allowed medical use of marijuana and you and he descended from the court's decision which upheld the federal privacy over the state law for similar reasons. He did not accept the argument that personal growing a few plants for your personal use. If you're sick and california triggered federal authority through the commerce clause so it's not completely new for for clarence thomas. this was in medical. He went beyond that in in what he wrote this time. That's right that's right. He did and You know and yeah. I mean i. I'm i'm not. I'm not shocked by it You know it's it's really consistent. With what he said. Before ee someone who rarely changes his views on things so they're not to be huge surprises. But if you wanna go a little more broadly Mike you know he. He aligned with the liberals more often than one would expect in this in this term. He did for example in a case involving class action case involving whether consumers could a credit rating company that falsely labelled them as terrorists. Now he you know so there were some some moments where clarence thomas did not stick purely to the conservative script. But there were plenty more where he was exactly where he's always been the other most interesting clarence thomas development over the course of the last year and a half is. The supreme moved to remote oral arguments. We heard more from clarence thomas in the last year and a half then. We've heard from him during the his entire time on the bench because all of a sudden the chief justice was calling on every other justice to ask a question and silent clarence. Thomas suddenly became a very f- from my perspective. Very good questioner on the bench. There he often asked very insightful. Interesting questions That really kind of pushed the lawyers appearing before them is it time to reevaluate clarence thomas or is it just sort of this rare kind of thing that happened with cova. Well i think that You know justice. Thomas got a bad rap because he was almost always silent during oral arguments which is the only time the public really see the supreme court in action but anyone who's who's talked to him You know which a few times and Or seen him. Speak at an occasional public appearances. Knows that this guy. He knows law. He's very smart. He has very strong views on it. And they're certainly not used that everyone agrees with but when it comes to knowing the material on having incisive questions and thinking about it he does that. I mean this guy. I think was there are many reasons. One criticized him or any other supreme court justice but the idea that Some suggested that he's not asking questions you can't think of any or something like that is totally unfounded. And unfair to him. The question i guess now is if the court goes back in the courtroom and goes back to. Its normal way of argument. Which is a sort of free-for-all among the justices will clarence thomas continued to be involved or is it just the format where each justice ask questions in sequence in a teleconference that he found more comfortable or more useful to him and he'll go back is his prior a custom of of of.
"amy barrett" Discussed on The Guardian UK: Politics Weekly
"People like every other private person. Let's stupid they go through the laws and that's what it is. He passed a tax bill because he's really erratic during that debate he's deteriorating. The night goes on even fox news and sort of more republican leaning sites. Were questioning what was up with him and that he seemed really off at night and just had a poor performance. The president has been exposed to close aide. Hope hicks quoting hall. Picks and then thursday we find out that his one of his closest senior advisors hope picks A sick with covert and that was a infection that the white house wanted to try to conceal from the public but it was reported and then there are questions swirling about the president because they had been in close proximity all week. So the reason. I take you through. All those events is because i think they're important in. We'll we'll never really know where the president got sick. But there are a number of instances leading up to his infection where he could have contracted or been spreading it to other people. This point i mean the the. It was really in a grave place in america at that time absolutely so the doctors had been warning for months and months and months about this devastating fall surge and in the first week of october. You saw the crest of the third wave beginning so you had tens of thousands of new infections a day the death rate was climbing up alarmingly fast and by the time the president contracts colonel virus two hundred thousand americans have already died of it so the country is in an absolutely devastating place. At this point. The white house is trying to move on and focus on the election but the virus just won't let them because at this point this is when things are really starting to take yet another turn for the worst and it ends up being the most deadly wave of the pandemic so you mentioned that in that period events like the celebration of the nomination of amy barrett supreme court and other events with gold star families and this mask looseness that comes as you said from the top. Donald trump doesn't want people around in wearing masks. He set the tone and yet we also know from everything that was written about donald trump. even before he got to the white house the he was a notorious and is a notorious germaphobe. I'm also very much of a germaphobe by the way he's tremendously worried about his own healthy really doesn't want to get sick and this is something i've never myself understood. I cannot get the contradiction between on the one hand. this germaphobe is always hand sanitizing etc and doesn't really want to meet too many people and shake hands. And yet the recklessness in the face of cova you've really looked at this with your co author. Tell me how you square that circle so you're absolutely right. The former president was is a notorious germaphobe. Even had a favourite brand of antibiotic hand wipes that he used to hand to people who came in the white house but for whatever reason he saw masks as a sign of weakness wearing a face mask as agreed presidents. Prime ministers dictators. Kings queens utter around. Somehow i don't see it for myself..
Trump's tax returns and related records turned over to New York district attorney
"I want to move on and talk a little bit about the tax issue and the tax returns. The court ruling could be handed over to the state of New York and and Cyrus Vance, the A G o. It was the prosecutor in this case. Looking into the President. Trump has taxes, his finances, etcetera, etcetera. You're working on that case. Look, I don't know anything about it. I've never seen his tax returns. But from knowing how businesses are run, I doubt there would ever be a billionaire, or frankly, any wealthy person whose taxes would look good. Unless there's a W two and unless somebody's an employee, and unless there are no no deductions available, I would imagine it would be more complicated than the average person's tax returns. Number one and number two. I would imagine that the president Then private citizen, Donald Trump probably hired the best accountants and lawyers available and they were the ones that filled out the taxes and not him. Well, I could tell you this I mean, 45th president. United States did not go down to meet with the local enough No disrespect, Agent or block. Actually, they do a lot of work, but he didn't go down to the local agent are blocking. Sit down and say here, my W two than he lets on my tax return. You're actually corrected. Tax returns are from a business and from his personal Work, which includes media real estate. Real estate tax returns are complicated by nature. He had expert CPS. He had expert tax counsel that prepared the returns. I'm not concerned about the returns we fought, we fought it. During while he was president. We did not think it was appropriate. To be able to seek those records. At least not unless they could show a special height. Need to justice is actually four justices would have agreed with us on height need. I suspected we had Amy Barrett. Now she probably would have to. I don't know that But it wouldn't matter because now the 45th president is the former president. But Come out strategy standpoint, I'm not gonna discuss trial strategy, and I don't think these are going to trial but from a litigation strategy or case strategy when you defend tax cases used the tax returns to defend your case. So this is not complicated. The tax returns may be complicated, but this is not a complicated defense. You know, the president does make a point. I mean, I'm not sure if you followed Merrick Garland's hearing yesterday, but he e mean seemed like he didn't know never picked up a newspaper to may and didn't knows much about anything and wasn't even willing to commit to keep in the dorm. Investigation. Ongoing. We now have a smoking gun email appear. James committed Jim Clapper and in that, he acknowledged, And this was the day that he signed the sex and second Fiza application. Is the first renewal application subsequently signed a third application three of the four and admitted that he was not able to verify The veracity and truthfulness of what we now know is the bunk, which is Hillary's bought and paid for dirty. Russian disinformation dossier, which raises the question of fraud before a FISA court in my mind that seems like a slam dunk. Am I wrong? No, I think I think you're right. I think Merrick Garland has a as a judge. It's a good reputation and former Justice Department official as well. I'm sure he's going to get confirmed. Hopefully, he will apply the law to the fax is that sky is that kind of reputation? He's not an Eric holder in my view at all and again, I think that this is Look, when you have an election go the way it went, however, it went there. The fact is they get to pick their nominees. And while there's already been some objections on others, I don't expect to be much objection. There will be a party line. Objection, but I don't think will be overwhelming. Yeah. You know all these legal issues that the president has dealt with the weed? You know, the president uses the term witch hunt in so many different ways. Look at what this country was dragged through. For three years. You were you were part of following this entire Russian witch hunt. You were involved in everything involving you. You lived for three years. You You lived the first impeachment trial. You know when a quid pro quo when it was only one fact witness Only one it was all based on not even a real whistle blower. But I hear, say, whistle blower, non whistle blower, and, you know everyone that testified was either an opinion witness. Or hearsay witness and nobody had any facts and the only real the only true witness said No, he didn't want to quit port pro or quo. Um at all. He said he wants nothing. He wants to make sure they're not gonna be corrupt and take that to the next level is thin. You got Joe bragging on tape that he leveraged a billion taxpayer dollars so they'd fire a prosecutor. That was investigating his son being paid millions with no experience. Yeah, well, look, I think the fact is that we beat back Bob Mueller. We beat back the first impeachment. We had good success and a lot of the Supreme Court cases. And the second impeachment, which we did not participate. And although we filed a brief with the Senate on the legality issue of whether you can teach the president no longer in office, which we took the position you cannot The president won these battles I He will win these other battles that he's as right now. But look they're trying to. I think it's pretty clear that the moves here are to try to disable him, so to speak. From being able to run again,

Amy Coney Barret Tilts The Balance in Divisive Ruling
"A lot for being with us on this day after Thanksgiving. It was right before Thanksgiving late Wednesday. When the U. S Supreme Court The majority said, even in a pandemic You can't put away the Constitution. Now. In New York governor Cuomo says that he issued these restrictions on places of worship. Based on science. And safety. And so this is a fascinating ruling. In many regards number one. It's a big plus for religious freedom. Number two. It was just this past summer. That the Supreme Court ruled basically the opposite. In a case and there's some other cases that are being considered. I believe some cases California, New Jersey, Louisiana, So this is all about the Supreme Court blocking New York's governor from enforcing 10 and 25 person occupancy limits On religious institutions. Courts, the restrictions would violate religious freedom. And are not neutral because they single out houses of worship or especially harsh treatment. Or said there's no evidence that the organizations that brought the lawsuit have contributed to the spread of cove in 19. And this was one of those 54 decisions. With Chief Justice John Roberts. Going along with Justices Stephen Bryer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. And in their descent. Chief justice. Roberts said he saw no need to take this action because New York had revised the designations of the affected areas. Governor Cuomo essentially Said the same thing. Nevertheless, the Supreme Court did rule on it and also in the sending opinion. Justice Sonia Sotomayor said this unlike religious services, Bike repair shops and liquor stores generally don't feature customers gathering inside to sing and speak together for an hour or more. She went on to say justices of this court play a deadly game in second guessing the expert judgment of health officials. About the environments in which a contagious virus now infecting a million Americans each week. Spreads most easily. Those are the words and the dissenting opinion from Justice. Sonia Sotomayor, your Down the majority, and this may be the new power five and this is one of the key developments out of this ruling. A new power five on the Supreme Court. Barrett Gorsuch. Thomas Alito. And Cavanaugh. Three of whom, of course, were Appointed By President Donald Trump in the Majority opinion. Justice, Gorsuch said this, he noted that Governor Cuomo had designated among others, the hardware stores acupuncturists. Liquor stores and bicycle repair shops as essential businesses. That were not subject to the most strict limits. Like these places of worship work. Gorsuch said. We may not shelter in place when the Constitution is under attack. Things never go well. When we do So it Zbig deal for the Supreme Court. It's a big deal for I mean, let's face it all those evangelicals that voted for President Trump. They've got to be doing a victory lap today, right? Maybe you are a swell 51283605 90. If you'd like to be a part of the program here, you give us a call or send us a text on K. O. B. J. It is because Amy Barrett just got on the court. Right, So it's really The first significant indication Of a rightward tilt to the court. And I mentioned this and may and July Supreme Court rejected challenges. Virus related restrictions on churches in California and Nevada. At that time, the Chief Justice John Roberts, Joined the courts Democratic appointees, which of course, then included Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And those rulings they stress that state and local governments required flexibility to deal with a dangerous and evolving pandemic. So The New York Times, Right said. This is just One example of how profoundly President Trump Has transformed the Supreme Court. This New York Times P, says Justice Bharat Help the chief justice of body blow. Casting the decisive vote in a 5 to 4 ruling. On religious services in New York. And New York Times says this is most certainly a taste. Of things to come. About this 51283605 90 here on Caleb E. J. It is an interesting question, right? In the summer time. Even the Supreme Court said, Look You may not like it when these local officials are trying to close the church. But You're dealing with health and safety issue. And there are rights. Given to local officials in the event. Of health and safety issues. Well, not in this case, the governor there in New York, Andrew Cuomo. He criticized the Supreme Court. Or overturning their restrictions. He said It was Morrell Astrit Ivo of the Supreme Court than anything else. He called the ruling irrelevant. Said it would have any practical impact because restrictions Are not in place and had been dialed back well. You know, it's interesting that even in the Opinion. That was written by Sonia Sotomayor, right? When she was talking about The court plays a deadly game and second guessing the expert judgment of health official. Let's stop right there.
Supreme Court rejects COVID limits on New York houses of worship
"The. Us supreme court ruled five to four wednesday evening to struck down an order by new york governor. Andrew cuomo that placed restrictions on the number of people at religious gatherings justice. Amy barrett on the bench for a month. Was the key swing vote. In this case barrett sided with four other conservatives. The majority wrote in part quote even in a pandemic.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett notes when she adopted daughter, says George Floyd video was personal for family
"Money. Barry talking about her adoption of two Children from Haiti. When Jesse and I were engaged. We met another couple who had adopted in this instance It was a couple of it adopted a child with special needs, And then we also met. Another couple had adopted a few Children internationally, and we decided at that point, while we were engaged that at some point in the future. We wanted to do that ourselves on guess we had imagined initially that we would have whatever biological kids that we had decided. TTO have and then adopt at the end, But after we had our first daughter, Emma We thought. Well, why wait? Okay, well, that does not seem like an unsympathetic, terrible person to me, which is what Democrats would prefer to paint her as they're also prefer to paint her as a racist. It makes it kind of difficult and she's obviously not a racist. So here is a CB talking about the George Floyd video and watching it with her two black Children. I was there on my 17 year old daughter, Vivian, who's adopted from Haiti. All of this was erupting. It was very difficult for her way wept together. In my room, and then it was also difficult for my daughter, Juliet, whose 10 I had to try to explain some of this to them. I mean, my Children to this point in their lives had had the benefit of growing up in a cocoon where they have not yet experienced. Hatred or violence on DH for Vivian. You know, I understand that there would be a risk to her brother or the son. She might have one day of that kind of brutality. Has been an ongoing conversation. It's a difficult one for us like it is for Americans all over the country, and the other problem for them is it turns out that Amy Barrett does represent a lot of viewpoints from the middle of the country. She lives a lifestyle that many in the middle of the country can identify. The people on the coast sometimes have trouble identifying
Biden Has 11-Point Lead Over Trump
"Joe Biden hold an eleven percentage point lead over president trump nationally according to a new Wall Street Journal NBC News Poll. He has a fifty three percent to forty two percent edge. The poll was taken after the president's in one thousand, nine hospitalization the televised debate, as well as judge Amy Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court for a closer look at the numbers and the remaining days of the campaign were joined by national politics reporter Elisa Collins Hi, Elisa Hi there. So let's first talk about the poll itself. A double digit lead for Biden is it to be taken at face value what what does this lead show? Well, this lead shows that Biden is ahead by Donald trump by a lot. And he has been for a long time. The cause for concern for the president here is that in the last poll we took, which was immediately after the debate Biden's lead actually expanded to fourteen percentage point, which was the weakest showing the president had had yet. The president has gained back a bit. Now he is eleven points behind Biden, but that is still larger than he was in September. So following tumultuous few weeks for the President, he got krona virus, he was hospitalized. He had a debate performance that was criticized by Democrats and Republicans he's had a hard time coming back to even where he was in September even if he's showed a little bit of improvement over immediately following the debate.
"Amy Coney Barrett is is talking to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. She's not saying much One thing that's clear from her hearing is that Amy Perez, shifty Amy Kuney Barrett is smart amy. Barrett is smarter than Brett, Kavanagh like of the. Smarter. Than Bread Kavanagh her confirmation hearing significantly less irritating on its face is it's got less screaming in it but do you think that her being? More, pleasant. Than other. Nominee his I'm specifically talking about Brad. Kavanagh, has lulled into a false sense of complacency. No, I don't think. So I really don't I think that we all probably learn a little bit more because we listen because we're not being shouted out about shouted out about making beer and squeeze in some calendars. You know I, think that we in some ways. I can't tell you a ton. From my memory of like policy questions that Brett Cavanaugh answered right like we were really put off by his temperament and everything sort of fell from there. But with her I think that senators have asked very good questions of her I think she hasn't answered most of them I, that that tells us a lot you know. I. Think especially because she is you know for someone who says that? It's my job to not forecast or say how I would vote if I were on the Supreme Court but you know she tells us that she has told us a lot. She's a very Christian she's pro-life and she brings her kids everywhere and I say this because she's a woman but I don't understand why people bring their small children to confirmation hearings it no sense. Have you seen? Pictures from Antonin Scalia is confirmation hearing He brought his entire big family. There's something to me read like sort of hat tip to her mentor Antonin Scalia who she clerked for Oh interests during okay I. did not know that during his hearing. He had like I. Think he has nine kids or something like that, and they all were sitting there in the chambers and he was. Confirmed during a time where things were a lot less contentious I mean bork already happened but he was things were a lot less contentious when he was confirmed and so there was a lot of like it. It's super weird to revisit that now because there was a lot of like people on the committee complimenting his big family and it was it was very, very strange but I think one thing that you know her family life is pretty irrelevant to. Her capacity as as a judge and her being a nice lady doesn't really have anything to do with her capacity as a judge what I was disturbed by that like. These hearings always to me seem just like an exercise and gas lighting. We know what she thinks about Roe v Wade we know what she thinks about it it is. We know and so she spends. Days pretending that we don't know and that her views are somehow something that she's going to rule on without input from her like she signed onto a letter that was written on behalf of a group that believes in vitro fertilization is manslaughter. Anyone asked her about that I didn't not yet. Did they somebody did on Tuesday they asked her if she felt like that and she said that she just signed the letter her way out of church or something I. Did hear that part that's fucking nuts i. just I hate how were being gasoline here I I it here's my question for you. Do you think because you know there are a lot of people who think that Democrats should have boycotted the hearing to show what a sham it was. I don't know how I feel about that. What do you think? I don't know I feel like the the right thing to do is. I think the platonic ideal of a member of the Senate Judiciary for this has been amy, Klobuchar Amy Klobuchar who the good aiming the good amy as you know as as she was running for president, she wasn't somebody that I whose candidacy I was enthusiastic about She's somebody who falls to the right of me on many issues. But as a member of this committee, she's done a really good job of asking pointed questions that seemed to have simple answers but that Amy Coney Barrett the bad, amy. Has Been Dodging.
What will the Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation mean for the 2020 election?
"We can talk about murder boards. Because Amy Cockney Barrett has just being doing them. I've never heard of murder balls before One of our guests was saying it's the American phrase for a Nintendo practice interrogations where you get people to take you through what you're about to go through. If you're about to go through, for example, the confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court because she is President Trump's pick to fill the vacancy of Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Her appointment would cement Conservative majority on the Supreme Court with enormous political implications. Eyes like nothing seen in U. S history, so close to a presidential election, his Barbara Plata Amy Cockney. Barrett is a dream nominee for those on the right, but it is my honor to nominate One of our nation's most brilliant And gifted legal minds to the Supreme Court Appeals court judge is a formidable intellect, a devout Catholic, a supermom with seven Children. While I am a judge, I'm better known back home as a room, parent, carpool driver and staunchly conservative, although at this White House ceremony, she distanced herself from partisan divides. If confirmed, I would not assume that role for the sake of those in my own circle. And certainly not for my own sake. I would assume this role to serve you. It's just weeks from the election, but nothing is getting in the way of the rush to confirm the new Supreme Court Justice, the third nominated by President Trump, the stakes are just too high. Processes nomination consistent with rules. And I look forward to coming days will be a lot of fun. It will be fun for them. See Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and other Republicans because it's an unprecedented chance to secure a conservative majority on the court for a generation. And also to recharge the election campaign by energizing the base help Amy Barrett and President Trump Fight back stand up for conservative values Republicans But also Democrats have adjusted their campaign adverts to address the unexpected vacancy on the Supreme Court is rushing through a Supreme Court nominee to do just that step away care from millions of Americans and pre existing condition protections for Democrats. This is a nightmare, a job for life. A court that sets the nation's social and cultural direction on issues like gay rights, gun control, abortion and Obama care. Judge Barrett is very fair, but fans of Judge Conti Barrett are convinced she's the best candidate for the job. She's a popular law professor and Laura Walk was one of her students. Judge Barrett is not swayed by any type of personal preferences or things like that again. Witness that in the classroom no one ever knew what Judge Barrett thought about an issue. She never let her students he never Pressured them to think a certain way. Everything was hyper focused on the law. Democrats don't have the votes to stop this, and they're furious about the politics. Today I am nominating Chief Judge Merrick Brian Garland to join the Supreme Court. In 2016, Republicans blocked President Obama from filling a Supreme Court seat because it was an election year. But now that they're in power, they've changed their tune. And the conservative media is almost giddy with excitement. This is going to have a massive impact on the American judiciary, thus gonna have a massive impact. On American culture and society. If Donald Trump secures the Supreme Court seat, even if he doesn't win the election, his presidency will be deemed a success by the ideological right and by evangelical Christians. That's why they voted for him, and it will be remembered as a turning point for the nation on some of the issues that matter the most to Americans.
Trailing in the Polls and Time Running Out, Trump Looks for One More Comeback
"From his first day in office Donald Trump has been the shock-and-awe president, but it's possible with three weeks until election day that Mr trump has lost his ability to shock and awe us and with his poll numbers slipping what we've seen in the past week has been especially Trumpian. Even for president trump he told Americans not to let the coronavirus dominate their lives after he received access to treatments most Americans still can't get claim. There's now a cure for cova lengthy appearance on rush limbaugh's radio show appeared on another show for a so called virtual medical exam with a friendly Fox doctor in another city urged his attorney general to indict Joe Biden and President Obama successfully pressured secretary of State. Mike. POMPEO to agree to release Hillary. Clinton. Emails pulled out of covid relief talks then pulled back in and pulled out of the next debate then begged back in then it was canceled. Are we shocked are we odd or we shrugging our shoulders and shaking our heads? The flurry of activity is help to put the president in political peril in five battleground states two fivethirtyeight pulling average Joe Biden at fifty percent or higher. That includes Wisconsin Michigan and Pennsylvania. The three states that put Mr Trump over the top in two, thousand sixteen, and when you look at the other swing states, Biden is leading and everyone but Texas, and it's remarkable that we're even talking about Texas meaning that in one thousand, nine, hundred, Reagan landslide is not totally out of the question. Even now with the president cleared by his doctor to return to campaigning his sinking poll numbers have made fellow Republicans nervous about their own prospects in. November. I'm feeling great I don't know about your president trump trailing in the polls and increasingly erratic spoke to hundreds at the White House on Saturday his first public event. Since being hospitalized, we're starting very, very big with rallies still reeling from his faltering debate performance isolated in the White House. The president spent the week minimizing the virus. Don't let it dominate. You don't be afraid of it I think this was a blessing from God that I caught it. I'm telling you we have a cure more than just a therapeutic. We have a cure, any thirty, six, our conservative media blitz Mr Trump spent two hours on the phone with rush limbaugh? Tear. Me When I was coming down the the escalated, a beautiful golden escalators and take what was billed as an on camera medical examination with a Fox News contributor I've been retested and I know I'm at either the bottom of the scale free on Friday the president's top infectious disease expert. Lame. The Rose Garden ceremony two weeks ago for the White House outbreak, we had a super spreader. Event in the White House and it was in a situation. Where people were crowded together. We're not wearing masks at what point do you think you contracted it looking back? I don't know the they had some big events at the White House and Perhaps there. But this week, the president appeared to blame his infection on gold star military family they come within an inch, my face sometimes they wanna hug me and they wanna kiss me. Than they do and frankly. I'm not telling them. Back up as poll numbers drop, the president is searching for a political weapon publicly pressuring the Justice Department to Prosecute Democrats unless bill bar dates these people for crimes that the greatest political crime in the history of our country. Then we're going get little satisfaction unless I win and lashing out at Senator Comma Heron. Let's just monster that was on stage with Mike Pence Senate Republicans hoping to change the subject see Supreme Court nomination hearings this week as their only possible lifeline I'm going to lead the charge to confirm Judge Amy Barrett the court but Republicans. Worry. The Senate majority is at risk Senator John Cornyn told the Houston Chronicle this week that trump let his guard down and got out over his skis by playing down the virus threat

How Sick Is Donald Trump?
"How sick is donald trump in a video he posted this weekend from hospital. He said he faced a test and his expression was certainly that of a man who is less than healthy but coupled with conflicting reports on the president's health with one doctor saying he was better but another confirming the use of a drug usually reserved for the gravest of ill patients, the communication seem in disarray, and then suddenly the president emerged in his car to greet well-wishers gathered outside the Walter Reed. Hospital. Monaco's US election correspondent has more. Well on Sunday, we did get fatty remarkable sight of a convoy of cars traveling around the complex the Medical Center where Donald Trump is receiving treatment He was in the back seat of one of the vehicles wearing a mosque waving the people who have traveled in some cases huge distances right across the country to be at the medical complex and to wish the president. Well, it followed a weekend of fairly a fairly confusing picture of. The timeline of when the president tested positive when he and his White House staff knew of the diagnosis but also of his The state of his health as well. We have been told that over the weekend, he was given a supplemental oxygen treatment twice at two points during the weekend and he was also given steroids neither medical commentary that's come out around that over the weekend suggests that the infection could have been fairly severe that for other cases for other patients being treated for the Corona Virus that steroids example only used if the infection is fairly severe. Doctors have said that they may well discharge the president some point. Either on Monday today or this coming week Joe Biden Donald. Trump's rival for the White House. He announced again that on Sunday he had been tested once more on the test had. Proven negative. There is a suggestion that because it's a little unclear exactly when the president was infectious and potentially contagious with corona virus that whether diagnosis for Joe Biden himself which show up yet it does take around five days. So medical commentators in the United States are saying sometimes much longer that Joe Biden has said he will travel to Florida this week for a campaign event. He is stating that he is getting tested regularly. There is some commentary exactly around the nature of those tests are an elsewhere in the President Circle William Bar the attorney general on Sunday was that he is now self isolating as well. He was at that event at the White House on the Saturday at the unveiling of Amy Barrett as the nominee for the supreme court to replace. Wreath Ginsburg it does appear that many of the positive infections that have now come and being reported for many of Donald Trump's closest allies now does seem to be circling in on that event on that Saturday particularly on the indoor reception that took place within the White House on that day. So it's still an unpredictable picture and an unprecedented one as we am to these final weeks of the election campaign
What to expect from the first Biden-Trump debate
"President trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will debate for the first time tonight. This is the first of three presidential debates. This one comes right after the New York Times, came out with its big investigation of trump's taxes. He reportedly paid very little federal personal income tax for years. As he claimed massive business losses, we should say NPR has not independently examined the tax records that the times has but these revelations do set the stage for tonight's debate in Cleveland, and that is where we find NPR political correspondent. asked me. Good Morning Good Morning David so how do we think these these taxes in the new? York Times reporting will factor in tonight. We'll do they should point out that we have not yet heard anything from Joe Biden in regards to the story. So tonight is really our first chance to hear his response and I anticipate. He will find a way to bring it up if the moderator doesn't bring it up I and I say that because you know his campaign has been trying to capitalize on this they. Instantly within hours had you know we're selling merchandise t shirts buttons in regards to this. It also fits into a broader narrative that the Biden campaign has been trying to talk about, which is scranton versus Park Avenue. This idea that Joe Biden's for the common man and and Donald, trump is for the ultra rich but I will say no matter how this story comes up tonight we can also anticipate president trump defending himself either by saying the story is fake news or that he is smart and entitled to tax credits like other people I mean just think about this year and wouldn't our country and what the world has been through. There is so much to bring up in in a moment and evening like this. Surely, the pandemic is something that that will be discussed at length. What else do we expect? Yeah. We'll definitely the penick other topics include the economy election integrity race and violence trump's in Biden's records, and of course, the Supreme Court weekend president trump announced his nominee to the Supreme Court judge. Amy Barrett and it appears he has the Republican votes to confirm her. So we'll be interested to see is how Biden confronts this issue you know he has been trying to tie this to healthcare since Judge Barrett has criticized past rulings upholding the affordable care act? And I such interesting timing here an estimated million voters have already cast votes. This election season I mean, does that change the meaning of tonight of the stakes in some way I think it's such an interesting question David right I mean polls have shown president trump trailing so I will say that even though many people have voted there are still many many more people who will likely vote and so we will expect to see president trump kind of seek out opportunities to alter the trajectory of the race He has shown in two thousand sixteen that he is an unpredictable and forceful debater and Joe. Biden said that really tonight to be successful he just needs to tell the truth but president trump is a TV entertainer who has kind of a loose definition of the truth and I am curious how that might change the parameters of the debate. I will say we have an extremely polarized electorate. There are not that many undecided voters sue how people respond to this debate. And I will also say how if at all they respond to the New York Times reporting on President Trump's tax returns are too big new wildcards in this race I know it's going to be a long night. Thanks to you US Monday the whole political team for all the work. Tonight. Thanks for having me
US Supreme Court: The possible nominees to fill vacancy
"Of you paid attention to who the possible nominees are. People are talking about Amy Kuney Barrett and Barbara Lago do you know but these judges and can you tell us anything about them? Sure I mean there. It's almost certain to be Amy Coney Barrett. Just because trump has generally deferred to actually others throughout his four years especially when it comes to the higher court, the Circuit Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court, and there's really a pretty big consensus around amy. Barrett, there some talk that like trump would be helped in Florida if he went the other way. But I'll be I'll be very shocked if it's not her now she is you know a a more or less. Predictable right wing jurist. I think her her confirmation. We'll have enormous effects just because I think it's clear. She's a reliable vote to overturn Roe v Wade where. Probably, in her absence, they would just continue cutting the meaning of that precedent down. You know because even as of today it's it's been made so hard to get an abortion in the south that weather would wanNA speak of. A meaningful federal right to abortion is already open to question in in many other areas. She'll just confirm that drift to the supreme, court in this liberal direction, which actually some of the Democrats on on the panel have have kind of colluded and in taking it toward in recent decades. So the addition of one person is rarely like catalytic or transformative. Maybe on this one issue of abortion, it would actually lead five of the justices without chief justice, Roberts to overturn Roe v Wade, which might not happen otherwise and I'm not suggesting that's not a big deal. It is, but probably in most other areas of law, it would just be like the same more of the same except more. So so so what are the different ways that you see this playing out Let's say this happened than Biden is elected He then gets to replace I assume the next soon to retire Justice Briar I believe, right? I mean. We. Assume that Clarence Thomas would try to outlast Joe Biden in the same way that Ruth Ginsburg tried to outlast Donald. Anything could happen right and you happen and of course, we should probably talk about interesting relationship between Biden and Clarence Thomas. How much of a? Let's go there. How much did Biden in neighb- ball Clarence Thomas is Supreme Court. Or empower him as a sitting Supreme Court justice while he was instrumental as as the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, I mean you know we can get personal. But in we've all seen, you know whatever the you know the Netflix's reenactment of this level. But you know the truth is that Biden you know maybe like all of us only more so again has been a prisoner of his time all the way along and at that moment The He he responded you know as part of the like con, the comedy of the Senate required. You know he hung out with these other white men and they decided that this wasn't a big enough deal and there was deference even in a democratically controlled Senate to the you know right of the president to nominate a supreme. Court justice when a seat is vacant we've totally given up those those norm sense really as a country, but you know within the Senate to. You know I definitely think he sh- his treatment of Anita Hill is part of the record that we ought to think seriously about it's mainly testament to changing norms in the country about gender and about sexual violence and so I but I. so but I would kind of broaden out to less about his own limitations which may be substantial and more about you know. Where we've come why really starting with Robert bork before through the Clarence Thomas Nomination, and through our time we've we've really converted national politics into like these psycho dramas around filling supreme court seats, and again, the reason is not having to do with any of these individuals Biden Thomas. it's more with what's at stake, which is policy making authority over all Americans and it it is. It's. It's hard to argue that this particular institution auto habit
