"Joining us tonight. Please have a great weekend coming up. Some conservative supreme court justices are complaining that they are viewed as political hacks and so we will have a refresher on the origin story of several of our recent additions to the supreme court. Melissa marie and brian fallon will join us next. This is rick. Rojo's i'm a national correspondent for the new york times i cover the american south being on the ground to cover story is part of the value of the new york times that it's also just part of the joy of this job as someone who grew up on the gulf coast. This often means going back to places that i grew up in. I went through with my family. I've fished in some of these places. I get to see them now as a journalist. And that's kind of a great privilege. I have people that i can check in with even when there's not breaking news it's not. Just here's the news. It's this is what a place fuels like. This is the music listening to and the food. They're eating. This is what it's like to be in a place. All of this is possible because of new york times subscribers they invest in our ability to do this kind of quality storytelling. If you aren't a subscriber yet and you'd like to join us you can become one. Ny times dot com slash subscribe. Okay i said. I just got. The national editor is actually calling me. One second tomorrow marks one year since the passing of supreme court justice bitter ginsburg within hours of her passing and with only six weeks until the twenty twenty election. Then senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell said this in a statement president trump's nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the united states senate. That move was quite right with topography. Because you'll recall back in two thousand sixteen. Senator mcconnell blocked the consideration of merrick garland who was nominated with eight whole months remaining in president obama's second term. You block the nomination. Because he said it was too close to a presidential election after trump was elected the supreme court seat was filled by conservative. Neil gorsuch and the conservative line was well. It was appropriate for conservative antony seat to be filled with conservative and when liberal with ritter ginsberg died literally weeks before the election. None of that reasoning applied. I know you're shocked president trump. Who promised you name supreme court justices. Who would oppose abortion rights. He literally said that on the campaign trail. He nominated amy coney barrett who was confirmed just one week before the twenty twenty election again remind you that donald trump loss this is. It was introduced at an event. Last week by senator mcconnell the very politician who rammed her nomination through the senate before a presidential election. She said this my goal today is to convince you that this court is not composed of a bunch of partisan hacks well justice. We're not convinced you need more people. Just at one signed a letter calling for the end of the barbaric roe v wade and one year after the death of rpg. The supreme court with six justices nominated by republican presidents. just straight up refused to block a texas law prohibiting almost all abortions in that state and joining us now is brian fallon founder and executive director of demand. Justice also with us is melissa. Marie law professor at nyu ended msnbc contributor. And i'm just really excited panel. Because i love you both so Brian i'm going to start with you. Supreme court justice clarence. Thomas also spoke out this week to say that the court isn't political. Don't mean to laugh. But he said the justices are not rolling based on personal preferences and suggested that the nation's leaders should not allow others to manipulate our institutions when we don't like the outcome that we don't get the outcome that we lake ryan. Are they protesting just a little too much. here. I mean we weren't born yesterday. I think they're trolling us or lena. I think justice is like lido. In clarence thomas now just disparity to know full. Well the havoc politically that they would be region by allowing this statute anti-abortion statute at texas to stay on and now they're going on a goodwill tour attempting to put the genie back in the bottle claiming that the court is not political while the public is starting to call bs on this in. It's it's far overdue. And i'd i'd this doesn't pass. The left has for these conservative justices to be out there literally justice barrett gave this speech. That you're referencing at an institute in kentucky named for mitch. mcconnell mitch. mcconnell literally introduced her so she is standing alongside the man who has threatened to blockade any future biden picks and then claiming that justices are not political actors. I mean come on the only thing that surprising to me is that a lot of mainstream media outlets continued gullible report. These claims by these justices at face value. We have liberal. Justices like justice. Briar mouthing the same talking points on his bookstore. He's got a whole book out right now. Claiming it the court needs to still be viewed as a political institution assertions otherwise just off base and i think those claims by justice briar while while intentioned are just belied by rolling like the one in texas and i i think that the public increasingly sides with the view of people justice sotomayor leaner descent said that this ruling showed a fundamental disregard for the rule of law. That's what's going on here The curtain is being pulled back and the conservative justices are going to get there..

"amy coney barrett" Discussed on Trumpcast
"And as you noted democrats chose to make it all about the affordable care act and say well if this individual is confirmed she could take away healthcare from tens of millions of people including all of these wonderful children and individuals who are so deserving of healthcare and. I'm curious looking back now. What what do you make of that. Strategy of that introduction of amy coney barrett to the world by democrats. yeah. I've been really thinking about that mark and i think in some sense. It goes to that predictive foresight and hindsight in other words. The democrats made a choice. They didn't quite know how to attack judge barrett. They knew we should note that from her confirmation hearings for her job at the seventh circuit. The federal appeals court where she had sat for three years. They couldn't touch a lot of the issues that were at the heart of what they were really worried about right. Which is her religious views and what she's written about the right to abortion generally but also just things that surfaced during the confirmation hearings about how early and often she was saying things like life begins at conception and how really involved she was both in a judicial project to say. That story decisive or president just doesn't matter so there's that she just doesn't have a lot of qualms about reversing cases. They weren't willing to talk about how she thought about precedent also she. She wouldn't answer. They weren't really willing to say. How does your view about reproductive freedom of and reproductive rights braid into the way you think about your job as a jurist. She had explicitly written about that right. We know that she has put that into evidence. Before dem's didn't wanna touch that either and that combined with the fact that she's simply wouldn't answer questions mean questions like very fundamental questions about. Can the president stop the election fundamental questions about things that totally orthogonal to her own job as a justice. And so i think all of that men that dem's were sort of boxed in that they chose to make this about the affordable care act because they wanted it to be kitchen table objection to bear it that everybody could understand. It's not complicated. I don't have to explain. Section two of the voting rights act. I can just say she's taking your healthcare away. But in the end the fact that that didn't materialize the fact that she happily signed on with the seven to two majority. That kicked away the affordable. Care act case. I think made the dem's look a little dumb you..

Who Will Win The Latino Vote
"The thick. This is a podcast about politics race and culture in the elections and all that kind of stuff from. Perspective I might Hosa. Joining us from Park City Utah. Nice does a first time. We've ever had somebody from Park City. UTAH. Is Mi Mike Madrid. He's CO founder of a little organization called. Thank. The Lincoln Project and he's a part, the public relations firm grassroots lab. Hey, Mike. Welcome to the show. So glad to finally be with you guys have been fan for a long time to be with you. Awesome. great-great-great joining us from New York City Lee healed by the she ceo and Co founder of the big data analytics firm seen plus and culture. Intel. Welcome. Really thank you so much. Super excited to be here with your friend Yes okay. So believe it or not It's only one week. Oh. My God one week to the election according to analysis by the more than fifty eight million people have already cast their ballots surpassing all male in early votes cast in the twenty sixteen election. A number of states Georgia and Texas have seen historic early voting turnout. I mean Georgia and Texas, and the both of you Mike in Lilly you've been following the data and the trends when it comes to support for either candidate so we're going to dig into yes the Latino and Latina vote and we've talked about how well they're thirty two million projected eligible Latino voters in this cycle. So that is the second largest voting. Indian tire United States it's likely that this election is going to come down to a handful of key states including Florida surprise and we know right I mean what happens with Florida is going to be determined by Latino and Latina voters correct three point one million eligible voters according to Pew. Research Center there are a number of motivators this time around from the coronavirus pandemic which has really taken a toll on dinos and Latina's to yes the Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett and as a disclaimer. So we are recording on Monday afternoon and the final confirmation vote of Barrett is expected to take place on Monday night just saying democracy question Mark Mike, what are you seeing about this Latino vote? And give us your sense like we're all on pins and needles. What's your top line? Is it going to be able to swing these key swing voter states towards Biden Or, will it be towards trump So let's talk about three states specifically and I'll give you kind of what we're looking out where we're trying to move numbers, and maybe some of the irony of the whole situation. There are, of course, a lot of voters now in states like Pennsylvania North Carolina but just mathematically where the communities really going to be determinative, it's going to be flooded out like you mentioned taxes in Arizona. Let me start with Florida because it is such Florida. Florida right Kinda got a look. We all know what that means and what it doesn't mean. Yeah. So trump's spat very early on Miami Dade was one of the counties that he spent most heavily in through the summer. He was up really big columbine the socialist trying to consolidate the Cuban vote multi generational, right? We all know that are older Cuban brothers and sisters have this real anticommunist sentiment anti-castro but the younger you get your that tends to Wayne and future generations and. Most of that was splitting off most Cubans under forty are actually Democrats as a plurality. So the Republican source kind of weight off, but the socialism stuff was working right can't wasn't working overwhelmingly, but it was working enough. Yes. Mike is that because maybe it was been his winnings, there are some of that's what I'm saying. Yeah absolutely. There's this kind of socialist is like the Big Buzzword big it's a big thing with these voter segments but. We gotTA KEEP IT in perspective. It's not like he was overwhelming. It was over performing with where you know trump wasn't twenty-six. They were moving votes early we all know Latinos. Late deciders we're hearing some of this stuff going y'all kit account makes sense. Yeah but look, this is largely corrected already we went in his Lincoln Project I'm not saying we went in alone we went in with a number of Latino organizations we went with North repack Chuck Rochelle Rip Bernie's group. We did you know me me Neither do I ask when it is a coalition and said, Hey, look you guys take the portrait. Daniels. You guys take the Central Americans the few Donald's out of there in Florida we're going to go in after the Cuba to the Venezuelan. We'll go hardcore after after the right you're going after the mother lode, you're like we're taking the colonial. Exactly, right you're doing Lincoln project style. We went with some really hard hitting ads gonNA peel off this vote. So you have seen the numbers come back to Earth a little bit I'm not going to suggest that there isn't a little bit more trump genus than we would like we get to kind of wise that's happening but one of the really Florida things about Florida this year is that trump the republican is over performing with Latinos. Enough to put this in title contention that we would like right and ironically, Biden is picking up more of a Republican sixty five and. Older senior citizen vote, which is a Republican base vote than his historical. So they're each eating into each other's constituencies and the question I think yeah. For flooded is going to be who holds onto each other's constituency the longest to push him over the line.
Why a New Abortion Ban in Poland is Causing a Furor
"Today in Poland where for five straight days. Now, streets across the country have been filled with protesters as we mark the swearing in of new Supreme Court, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, and wonder how the court will now see Roe v Wade Poland is an interesting case protesters. There are angry precisely because of a high court ruling on. Abortion last week, Poland's constitutional tribunal outlawed the practice in all but the most exceptional of circumstances as the world's Europe correspondent Orla Barry reports. The latest legal decision is now being widely condemned by women's rights, groups, Justin of it. The refs as a founding member of the abortion dream, team they're a well-known group of activists who says out in two thousand sixteen to de stigmatize abortion in Poland the dress had an abortion in. Two thousand six and even though she worked with an abortion support group called almost no one about your own experience for more than twelve years up to two thousand, eighteen I was talking about this as anonymous person. I was not showing my face I was afraid about my community for threats says, she worried what our neighbors would thank her. There's nothing unusual about women keeping their abortion secret in Poland more than one thousand. Legal abortions for carried out in the country last year but women's groups reckon that the number of illegal abortions or those performed abroad is closer to two hundred thousand. No one knows the exact figure the court ruling last Thursday. Permits Abortion only in cases of rape incest and the mother's life is at risk activists say that just adds to the stigma and it helps explain why women have been out protesting every day since. In more. So last night protesters poured red paint across the city's main bridge holding up signs that read you have blood on your hands, and this is war in the western city of Poznan demonstrators interrupted Sunday church services. Video posted online. A couple of dozen protesters are seen approaching the altar chanting we've had enough, but the refs ca says young people using such fury at the church is something new for Poland. There are very young women who are protesting chorus creaming on the on the priests in small towns. And like really today jurors, it is something which hasn't been seen on the streets before this is something new. What we see ninety percent of Poles identifies Catholic, and since coming to power in two thousand fifteen, the ruling law and Justice Party has promoted what it calls traditional Catholic values but recent surveys show the majority of Poles did not support more restrictive abortion laws. Activists say the new measures are a threat to women's rights in Poland Hillary Margolis is a senior. Researcher. With human rights, Watch under the Lawn Justice Party, we've seen repeated attempts to completely ban abortion also to obstruct sexuality education schools to really smear and undermine women's rights, groups and activists including those who work on violence against women and Margolis says, it's not just women's rights conservative politicians have in their sides the way they've used the concept of the so called traditional family to undermine women's rights but also lgbt rapes is very worry but in some ways has seen. Some success you they've managed to get people afraid and that is I think part of how they have kept power. But protesters say they will not be deterred several university faculties canceling classes tomorrow and some companies have announced a day off. So workers can protest Anthony in eleven. Scott is a sexual and reproductive health and rights activists based on more. So she says is not just young women who are taking to the streets taxi drivers joined yesterday form as join and. Some smaller towns and of the groups that has already joined the protest were actually the police officers that goes ing one of the provinces they just took their helmets off and they entered the crowd in order to participate. But not all police officers support the demonstrators that have been street clashes in Warsaw and Levin of SCO worries things might get more violent yesterday. The prime minister gave permission for the Military Police to join the police in the streets and they only do. You really believe that there is a huge risk of riots and the public turning islands. The Polish government has been accused of appointing judges loyal to the ruling party activists are hopeful that an international body like the European. Court of Human Rights could challenge the recent decision on abortion on that basis. In the meantime campaigners say they're worried about their future in Poland I asked just thrift Ska from the abortion dream, team if she's concerned about being targeted by authorities of cars every. Day that we are expecting them. So if there will be some kind of idea to close us, we will move abroad and we'll be still working will not stop for the rest says no matter what the government does women will continue to have abortions in Poland, and groups like hers will keep fighting for the right to do. So for the world I'm Morna Barry.

What role does is Supreme Court play having three vacancies open up on the supreme. Court. And filling them in the way that he did will be his legacy and the courts and general. He is confirmed an incredible amount of people to the courts and these three people to the Supreme Card, and even if in the weeks ahead when we find out what happens with the elections whether Democrats take the White House or the Senate or any sort of power will be a lot of changes and potentially things that we've seen on done over the past several years. But the Supreme Court is not one of them and this is him really preserving a conservative majority on the Supreme Court as his final big move. Alina TRINA CO author of the sneak peak newsletter.

"amy coney barrett" Discussed on Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates
"Now onto the topic at hand the Supreme Court and the nomination of Justice Amy Coney Barrett our debates going to center on three questions and I'm going to put them to each of our debaters in turn. This is part of our new agree to disagree podcast series I. Sat down with Cypress Cash and Irwin Marinsky for this one side is a law professor at the University of Virginia he actually testified in Judge Barrett's half in the Senate confirmation hearings. Irwin is a Dean at Berkeley Law School both are celebrated law scholars, and they agreed to debate this incredibly important topic with us. So let's hear it. So the topic I want to go to now is on the question timing the fact that this nomination is coming rather late in the fourth year of a president's term has made it controversial in fact, timing of just. Nominees to nominations to the supreme. Court has been controversial now for four or five years for a variety of reasons. So that's the first question. I would like each of you to tell me your position on on the question. Should the Senate be voting on a nomination to the Supreme Court right now sire you yes or no on that? I. Mean Yes. John All right cy you are yes. On the same question Irwin should the Senate be voting on a Justice of the supreme? Court now yes or no no amy honeybear bear should not be confirmed at this time. All right. Thank you I. Want to go first use for your reasons. Why are you a? Yes on the on the question of the timing of the nomination right now well, on the question of timing I think the Senate has the authority to consent the president is nominated someone. I don't see any reason why the Senate Caq Senate is doing other things it's it's considering thrown a virus relief. Of course, it can legislate until the members leave. and. So nothing nothing prevents the president from nominating someone nothing prevents Senate from acting upon that nomination and I think there three positions John. I think one position is you must vote on the nomination I. think that was Erwin's position for years ago. A second position is you can vote on the nomination, but you shouldn't that might ear ones position today and I the the middle position, which is you can vote on the nomination and you should. Thank your ticket back to you. So what I hear size saying is the Senate has every legal and constitutional right to be doing this now. They, certainly have the legal and constitutional right to do it, but they shouldn't do it. This is stunning hypocrisy by the Republicans for years ago Senator Mitch McConnell said, the American people should have a voice in the selection and the next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancies should not be filled into we have a new president. Antonin Scalia died in February two, thousand sixteen. President Obama named Mira Garland for that seat in March of two thousand sixteen. There was eight months before the election was to be held in the Republicans wouldn't hold hearings or wouldn't hold about Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September eighteenth of twenty twenty, and already the Republicans are looking to fill that seat. There is historical precedent. On October twelfth eighteen sixty four chief justice Roger Tawny died the president Abraham Lincoln didn't try to fill the vacancy in the month before the election or nineteen fifty-six Justice Sherman Minton resigned from the court but President Eisenhower didn't try to pick the successor instead an October fifteenth. He made a recess appointment of a Democrat William Brennan. So whoever won the election would pick the successor? Alright let. Let me jump in because I I WANNA give cya chance to respond to some of what you're saying. So so I think we heard from Irwin saying that. eight months. was enough of a lead time and they were talking about the case of Merrick Garland back in two thousand sixteen. But that one month one and a half months is too short and he sites precedent of other examples where presidents had more of that timeframe. So what's your response to that? I think are ones making a slightly different point I think if. They. Can See had risen eight months ago I think are only making the same exact point, which is what's good for the goose is good for the Gander. So it's not really a question of timing. There's plenty of time as Irwin and other people now there there's GonNa be a vote in the Senate. The point is about equity I. Think the point is about precedent in Irwin has some precedents would, of course, you can go back to previous administrations in sight other presidents. John Marshall was appointed days before John Adams left the Presidency Steven Briar was nominated and appointed to the circuit court after Jimmy Carter lost. So there, there are precedents obviously for acting after the election. Let alone before I understand there's some raw feelings about what happened four years ago and I understand that people have flipped Irwin. Himself is flipped a apparently senator McConnell may have slipped as well. I think. It's unfortunate. This game of delaying nominations has gone on for quite a long. I have a colleague who waited two years before she withdrew for circuit court position because it wouldn't allow vote. That's just sort of power politics on both sides our could bring it back to Irwin Irwin did you are you basically saying In a sense I think Sia- saying that your basic argument is that it should be payback time that if Obama didn't get to nominate Garland that trump shouldn't get to nominate Barrett or is there a principle involved having to do? With the proximity to election day. It's not simply payback. What it is is that we shouldn't have Republican court packing the Republicans were wrong in keeping Merrick garland confirmed the Supreme Court. But if the Republicans going to follow a principle that a president in an election year shouldn't feel they can see. The people to do. So then we should follow that principle. Now, it shouldn't be that the Republicans in two thousand sixteen will block a confirmation in two thousand, twenty Russia confirmation. That's what I'm objecting to. So so it is size point that you're saying that it's the perception of hypocrisy or inconsistency as opposed to the basic principle that you're not seeing that it should never be the case that in the last couple of months of a president's term, he should not name a nominee to the supreme court if Mirror, girl and be confirmed in two thousand, sixteen, I would not be making this argument today but to have Mitch McConnell Block Mirror Garland and rush. Amy. Barrett is the height a stunning hypocrisy? Think the problem is that both sides are are hypocritical on this point, right? Because everybody who said, there was a duty for years ago is no longer saying that I guess if everybody stay true to their position would be, it'd be an interesting vote I just I. Suppose this wouldn't be brought, but other people would be demanding that was brought forward. This is this is the simple point. John There's been politics in the judicial confirmation process for quite a long time. There have been delays, inordinate delays many people waited two years for a hearing and that was basically politics was nothing else? Irwin is it ever the case from your point of view that it that it becomes? Not, logistically too late but too late in principle for an outgoing president. To to to have this opportunity to nominate another another candidate to the Supreme Court site given, what would earn is saying the fact that this thing has become so political does the process itself including the issue of timing. Throw into. Question. The legitimacy of the court is there a sense that it's become? So hyper political that we're looking at a situation where the two parties are are are picking their judicial results or at least trying to in in choosing somebody to the supreme. Court. Why think it's it's been the case for a while John that the parties are selecting now nominees that they believe will advance. A vision of the constitution that more closely aligns with their party platform. So I don't think that's changed I. Think if we're talking about the legitimacy of the court that kind of segues into the third segment but but I guess what I'll say is obviously a where we'd be in a better place if people weren't didn't have hard feelings about what's going on now A. Part of that I think is you know a Part of it, it's what Mitch McConnell and the president are doing part of it also is internal right I don't think that.
"amy coney barrett" Discussed on Opening Arguments
"There's nothing stopped me from just changing the law to be whatever the Hell I want it to be. That's why president is important. As people start to realize this. They have started to shift to well, you know we we still do have some fixed points so Where the fixed points come from for I the term itself comes from. ICON, a classic conservative judicial theorist, and later Judge Richard Posner we've talked about him on the show he wrote a law review article in Nineteen, seventy six with a with another guy professor Landes. In which they were trying to measure concretely how precedential opinion was right I in order to calibrate like okay. How strong is this case in terms of constraining future supreme court's from changing the rules and One of the things they considered and rejected was the idea that you could just count. The number of times a case get site. Right and I think they rightfully said that's not the best measure because some things do get cited again and again and again and again and again written. For example as a as a civil practitioner in in two thousand five, the Supreme Court changed the rules on how you plead your civil lawsuits. Those two cases were called Ball Iq Cuba L. and Twelve Bleed T. w. o. m. b. l. e. y., and my guess is those cases have probably been sighted tens of thousands of times. Actually. I didn't think about this. It's like an academic journal. You can go by what has the most citations it gets like a score yere. How important something is okay. That's exactly right and so you don't even have to say, I, I filed a motion to dismiss a reply brief supporting it earlier this week and Dick ball wildly right like everybody that it's a thing that you do so. So yes, like number of citations is important but then those British comedy duo I didn't know that. I. Love It. But then Posner hypothesize is this. He says, I want you to imagine a case. So powerful a super precedent let's call it that that it would be quote. So effective in defining the requirements of the law that prevents legal disputes from arising in the first place or if they do arise, induces them to be settled without litigation. In, the limit such a super precedent might never be cited an appellate opinion and yet have greater precedential significance than the most frequently cited cases. And let me tell you I. Love this description because I have made this argument in a brief before right I've had a couple of cases in which the opposing side has said something. So preposterous. that. I've gone to look for a case that says you know you can't to do X.. I can't talk about a real case that I have right now I know Morgan is is cackling right now with Glee because she knows what I'm thinking about. But you know you might have a case in which the other side says think about the air bud rule right like. It's funny. I was GONNA make the same joke. Yeah. if if they were to say, well, there's there's no case that says the dog can't play basketball like and I've had to say while opposing counsel is corrected there's no case that says a dog can't play basketball. There are thirteen movies that prove. Thirteen thousand seven hundred and forty two cases that say humans play basketball and know it stands to reason that this proposition is so basic that courts need not even adjudicating, right? And that's what post is sort of pudding to to the to the test that right like and I agree with him on that. THEIR USE OF SUPER PRECEDENT IS NOT What Samuel Alito Coney Barrett mean by super precedent there use. Comes from? Ted Cruises favor it former judge judge Michael Ludik the person that for whom Ted Cruz clerked former fourth circuit judge and and the person that the Ted. Cruz. Routinely sites as his fixed star for judicial philosophy. And there was a case called Richmond Medical Center versus Gilmore Nineteen F- third three, seventy, six from two thousand. So this is the first time that this concept enters the conservative legal lexicon and in that judge Ludik on the Fourth Circuit says quote I, understand the Supreme Court to have intended it's decision in Planned Parenthood v Casey to be a decision of superstar decisiveness with respect to a women's fundamental right to choose whether or not to proceed with the pregnancy. So, this was the first time that a conservative activist judge said Yeah Yeah I get but like. I can overturn Casey, right like if the Supreme Court and implicit here is the supreme. Court wants to overturn Casey like against the CAN But to me, this is not just you know binding pass this is superstar decisiveness. And that got a lot of attention and that that's how very conservative activists like. Alito and Barrett have sort of moved the noodle to say okay well, you know now the question is is an opinion super precedent and therefore it's bound by superstar decisiveness and we can't touch it. Even if we unless I less, we really really hate it and then you know it's probably still up for grabs. So. So, incidentally, not an improper question as a follow up I i. know a lot of people are sort of inferring from Judge Barrett's remarks I think properly that she does not consider Casey to be super precedent I would have read that statement from Gilmore and asked Okay you've said Super Precedent. Judge Ludwig I'm sure you know well, very conservative jurist. Fourth Circuit case. Richmond Medical Center versus Gilmore I understand Supreme Court intended Casey to be decision of superstar devices. Do you agree that the Supreme Court? So intended Casey? And that is a question she should but would not answer. So so that's super precedent for you. Okay. Every bit as down I thought it would be. final question that a lot of people are wondering about for I. Know There's a lot we could talk about but for today's episode talk about the case it's getting shared as kind of mean for him to did amy conybeare it really rule that boss using the N. word in a workplace was not discriminatory or not like workplace harassment. Yes. She did the criticism here is one hundred percent fair and this is how we make the case against conservative judges right because because because look this isn't an indefensible opinion if you want to reach the pro employer outcome, right in other words, this is not a dv Heller situation where they're just making up the rules right? This is about how you construe. The District Court ruling on certain kinds of evidence and I think in a way it helps in. Even. More. So than sort of pointing out outcomes to talk about procedurally, this is how judge Barrett approaches these kinds of cases so. Like a cruel and unusual types of. You know because that's a because that's a matter of first interpretation of a constitutional provision. This is about upholding a district court's evidentiary rulings and how the case Scott categorized in light of those rulings so. This case is called Smith Versus Illinois Department of Transportation. Link in the show notes. I want to tell you. We did back to back episodes on Amy Coney Barrett's most significant cases. We did not discuss this case because she did not identify this as one of our ten most significant. Cases. Even though that list included descents and she then had to add in additional cases that she authored and she authored this opinion, she did not listed on that list nor did she listed on her list of additional cases that she authored that have constitutional implications? Wow. So You. Think she was trying to keep this under the radar. I would. She like not to talk about this case I think the answer to that is yes So this is a case brought under title seven of the Civil Rights Act of nineteen, sixty, four, forty to USC section two, thousand, e Dash To. and. We've talked about that in the context of the the bizarre versus altitude express cases right the this is the same provision that says it is unlawful for an employer to adversely affect your employment because of race..

"Other outlet that didn't know until yesterday that the phrase sexual preference was offensive was the advocate. I, believe it is the largest and most widely distributed gay magazine and active gay website on culture politics, etc. for the lgbt community, the advocate last month published an article by a guy who's talking about this or that, and using the phrase gay man using the phrase sexual preference to describe his being gay. So. Apparently. Everybody knew about it except the gay magazine Merriam Webster's Joe Biden Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Maisy. Hirono till very recently all of these people apparently didn't know. And now they're trying to go after Amy Coney Barrett as in claiming that she did it that she used the phrase on purpose to be offensive I've Senator Ron Johnson on the program we're GonNa talk about Hunter Biden and the fact that we're not apparently going to get any charges coming out of any of these investigations related to the the Russia collusion corruption, etc but I I I do want to just you know the hearings are. Let's just say if someone digs this stuff up one, hundred years from now, history is not going to be kind of the United States. Well shows you the stark difference between Republicans and Conservatives and Democrats and Liberal Progressives. We actually we actually do Ribeira Constitution, we recognize speak third branch of government. The article three branch is the judiciary and it's not supposed to you political branches about legislating from the bench it's about applying the law. And Mike lead it a great job of just started a constitutional a seminar there as s as any coney Barrett when they described the fact that you know the judiciary is backward-looking it's looking at cases plying launch dispute. It's not about looking forward and going. Let's be here. What how do we shape America? How should we craft placing to impose that American? I mean. What could be greater. then. I guess one dictator in be dictated from the majority of nine justice are or if Joe Biden. A win thirteen or maybe fifteen, four more you know. If they're going to pack the court I believe still really back they're not gonNA. They're not gonNa go a one vote margin those. Three, eighty, five, it'll it'll go to level of certainty. So they have finally completely politicized the Supreme Court the the one branch government that was not supposed to be political supposed to be a political it's about applying. Lana. Alternate baking. If you see the headlines and I don't know if you've had a chance to cruise through various headlines, I, don't know if I don't care if it's Fox News MSNBC ABC. You know left wing sites, politico, whatever the headline is. It evasive or it dodges questions about obamacare questions about abortion. You know these are the kinds of words that are being used to describe her assertion that it is absolutely. Inappropriate to try to prejudge a case you haven't heard. It was brilliant when Lena Kagan that those things yes. Really being stabby told. You still smarter she's so qualified no. Vicki I. Think what? What? What I hated the most about these hearings and they are detestable are the Democrats. But when I heard any coney Barrett's say. Because I don't think any. Democrat. From the day diet yet but in the media. Questioned, the fact that she adopted. Two children that needed a home.

"Text, the text of the constitution can or the text of the document controls on, and again that's one of those theories that like sounds deceptively simple but in practices can be very difficult to implement. originalism again is the idea that. When you're turning the constitution, the constitution has affixed meaning and judges rebound by it. So originalism and tax journalism are at the very least close cousins. And where it is amy, Coney Barrett fallen to these three waves of originalism I interpret the Constitution as a law that I interpret its text is text and I understand it to have the meaning that it had at the time people ratified it. That meaning doesn't change over time and it's not up to meet updated or infuse my own policy views into it. Barrett has written about originalism at a very high level of generality One thing that I find very frustrating about her scholarship is with a few exceptions mean again, she's been very clear that she opposes abortion. She's been very clear that she thinks that the obamacare case wrongly decided, but she doesn't really get into the weeds about what sort of changes she would make under her originalist philosophy. You know we don't know if she agrees with Justice Thomas that federal child labor laws should be struck down. For example, but you she grew up in the Arrow where third wave originalism was ascendant amongst conservatives. She uses very similar rhetoric to what I hear from other third wave originalist at. So I think it's a safe bet that she join the supreme. Court you know there might be some nuances of just as Justice Thomas and justice gorsuch don't agree on everything. It's likely that Barrett won't agree with those two men on everything as well. But I think that she's going to take a very similar approach and we're going to see her like Thomas and gorsuch trying to sweep away much of the government's ability to function. ooh. And her confirmation Surpreme Court has albuque- sure. Do we know when it's going to happen? Yeah. I mean barring a miracle or like you know maybe six Republican senators will be lost at sea. She's getting confirmed says probably not about persuading each other unless something really dramatic happens. All Republicans will vote. All Democrats will vote. No. and. That will be the way the breakout of the vote the Senate is operating under a very rushed schedule together confirmed I mean I think Lindsey Graham has announced the first Markelle. On the Barrett confirmation in the committee will take place on Thursday I think she's likely to be confirmed by the end of this month just in time to weigh in on an election of which she won't commit to a peaceful transfer of power. Yeah that's right. Everything is awesome right now. Heiser.

"Illegal to intimidate voters. Shower I can't characterize the facts in a hypothetical situation and I can't apply the law to a hypothetical set of facts I can only. Work very hard not to answer questions that being said, this is a nominee with a pretty clear record. She is a so called originalist, which at least in its modern form is a fury that is used to implement very aggressive conservative jurisprudence on. Very outspoken in her opposition to Roe v Wade, she's criticized both of the Supreme Court pass decisions largely upholding the affordable care act. So we know that this is a very conservative nominee and we have a pretty good idea of what at least a few things are that she's likely to do right away. Well, I want to get to the originalism bullets start with the evasive nature of these hearings. Is this really something exceptional that we haven't seen before with Cavanaugh or Gorsuch or Keagan or Sotomayor? So I mean I think that Barrett is has been unusually evasive but. Supreme Court nomination hearings have been moving this direction of sucking all the information out of the room for very long time. It really goes back to the Robert bork hearing in the nineteen eighties. For, was Reagan nominated the Supreme Court today announced my intention to nominate United States court. Of Appeals Judge Robert H Bork to an associate justice of the Supreme Court. To his credit he was very honest about his. When I was when I do unfortunately I suppose. Is Take. Supreme Court. Opinions. Seemed to me unsatisfactory as matters of constitutional reasoning and criticizing it was very open about the fact that he believed that it was wrong. Not just for the supreme. Court to protect abortion. But to protect the right to contraception I, think the law was utterly silly law. You know he was very honest about the fact that he wanted to sweep away a bunch of voting rights victories including the one person one vote doctrine would says that you can't have one congressional district with five people in one with a million people and he did not get confirmed after being so honest and what I think every nominee since then has learned is that being honest is not a good way to get the job. roll-call number three, hundred, forty, eight, the nomination of Robert. H bork. The as our forty-two, the nays are fifty eight, the nomination is not confirm. Right but we do know a bit about her from her. Past as a judge last time we spoke to you we talked about abortion, the affordable care act and the election, which as I understand are still three issues that at least Democrats are trying to get some clarification from amy conybeare at on has has that worked at all thus far? So I. Mean there's a weird bit of Kabuki theatre to these nomination fights where especially when there's a Republican nominee, the democratic senators will try to trick the nominee into saying I will overrule Roe v Wade and the nominee is never tricked into saying that they will overrule Roe v Wade but like we know that she's going to overrule Roe v Wade, she has signed a bunch of petitions and sign on letters where she pledged to oppose abortion on. There was one she referred to Roe v Wade as an infamous decision. So there isn't a mystery here that needs to be solved. She just isn't saying it during her hearing. and. What will that actually mean for people? If Roe v Wade is overturned, there's a question about how the Supreme Court will go after row. They may not actually write the words Roe v Wade is overruled the court may just allow laws that make it functionally impossible to get an abortion thought ever saying that rose gone There's also a question if Roe v Wade is struck down the next possible horizon for antiabortion advocates is something called fetal person, hood and Fetal Person Hood would essentially be the opposite of V wait. So Ravi Wade says that the constitution protects the right to an abortion fetal pro person hood is the idea that. There is a constitutional right I guess of the fetus to not be aboard it and so if this theory were to take hold, it would mean that abortion would become illegal throughout all fifty states. We should note that in a lot of states, it's already pretty darn hard to get an abortion. Yeah. Yeah I mean the Supreme Court Wall it hasn't had five until very recently to outright overrule Roe v Wade. The court has been very aggressive in allowing laws that make it hard to get an abortion to stat. They can force abortion providers to read an antiabortion script. They can put certain regulations clinics. We'll likely see much more of this. So like the last big fight over abortion rights was whether states can enact laws that make it so expensive to. Operate an abortion clinic that it's functionally impossible to do. So and so that's one way that the Supreme Court could get rid of the abortion right without overruling Roe v Wade they could say Roe v Wade is nominally in place but if a state wants to pass a law saying that all abortion clinics have to be built out of solid gold, they can do that. Do you know how many Americans have a pained insurance to the affordable care act? I do not. Let's talk about the affordable care act for a second. I saw part of the hearing on Tuesday where senator he was climbing Amy Barrett into how many people could stand to lose health care if the affordable care act is struck down is more than twenty million. And you know how many children under the age of Twenty Six. Stay on their parent's insurance because of the affordable care act. I do not an Emmy conybeare it seemed to not know how many people had their healthcare on the line. Did we learn anything about her feelings on the ACA so bear, it hasn't been particularly forthcoming in this hearing about her views on Obamacare, but she wrote a book review in two thousand seventeen where she said that NF I be the first decision that largely upheld the affordable care act and king the Burwell. The second decision which preserved the affordable care act after a partisan attack rested on a you know what she thought was a very stretched and like difficult to defend reading of the law. So she's been fairly clear that she thinks that the past court decisions allowing Obamacare to continue to thrive were wrongly decided that said, there is a case in front of the Supreme Court right now, which rest on unusually weak legal argument that seeks to strike down the affordable care act, and in the short term I, don't know if Barrett or anyone else is going to sign onto the argument in this case because it is just so bad. But the fact that the court might not strike down obamacare this time around does it mean that they can't take another case and use that as a vehicle to strike the law down And the election. Yeah. Oh Man. So the one question that kept coming up about the election is, of course, Donald Trump hasn't committed to a peaceful transfer of power at. So some senators asked, do you believe that every president should make a commitment unequivocally and resolutely? To the peaceful transfer of power and she wouldn't say, yes she didn't say no but you know she wouldn't answer even that question well senator. That seems to me to be pulling in a little bit in this question of whether the president has said that he would not peacefully leave office and so to the extent that this is a political controversy right now. As a judge I want to stay out of it and I don't want to express a view I. think There's one plausible reason she's not answering it is that. Donald Trump is vindictive and he you know he reacted in anger when Jeff sessions's previous attorney general recused from the Russia investigation. So he has a tendency to lash out at people add. So maybe Barrett did it answer the question because she fears that if she commits to a peaceful transfer of power Donald Trump, will with withdrawal her nomination I. Don't know why she wouldn't answer the question but I mean the most basic question you can possibly ask about voting rights you know if the voters elect Joe Biden President, can we have him become.
"amy coney barrett" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch
"The opinion pages of the Wall Street. Journal, this is Potomac Watch a couple more broad observations. That I've noticed from the hearing so far one is that as bill mentioned a judge Barrett clerked for Justice Antonin Scalia. There's been some attempts to try to make her answer for everyone of scallions, opinion and her reply to that I thought was pretty good. She said if I were confirmed, you'd be getting Justice Barrett not. Justice Scalia. and it seems that she's also adhering pretty closely to what's been called the Ginsburg rule from Ruth Bader GINSBURG. GINSBURG's confirmation hearings Kim, offering no hints no forecasts no previews of how she would rule. For example, on Roe v Wade Tuesday morning, Dianne Feinstein tried to pin judge down with very specific questions. Like was Roe v Wade wrongly decided, but she did not get very far there. And the GINSBURG role. Let's point out has been role sense GINSBURG. So Amy Coney Barrett in refusing to highlight or give any explanation about how she might rule pending cases that has generally been or has been absolutely the attitude of pretty much every supreme court nominee that has come up in front of the Senate ever since Ruth? Bader GINSBURG was confirmed. And it's it's also. A completely reasonable view because you know having a discussion about sweeping areas of. Prudence is one thing. But as we all know these cases that come up often turn on incredibly technical details, they're often centered on one small piece of Law and you can never imagine this scenario. WHO's the plaintiff do they have? and so it simply not appropriate to just make sweeping kind of generalizations about things. It's also not appropriate to foreshadow how you're going to rule before you've heard arguments or before you've had a chance to speak with your. Fellow judges who get a chance to make their arguments for different readings of law, etc. so that's completely within the norm You know I think what will be interesting to watch in coming days will be the many and varied ways at Democrats still try to get the answers that they want. Feinstein gave a good preview of that but expect Democrats in coming days to go about this and all different manners and fashions. Saying you know, can you think of other judges who are textualist whoever ruled on a case that helped you know the cause of gay marriage or something like this, and they're gonNA try to corner her in some way but I would also point out amy conybeare has been through this before she sat through a pretty grueling appeals court nomination hearing only a couple of years ago and you can bet she's been. Practicing for those kinds of questions this time to. One thing to me at least is notable absence. In the run-up to the hearings there was a lot of reporting in the press on Judge Barrett's Catholic religious faith and this charismatic group people of Praise. That she was reportedly a member of. Ability nobody knows none of the senator at least that I've seen have raised that yet and do you think they anybody will this week? No I think they've been shamed into it. look I think two things the judge bear benefits from his set. Brad Kavanagh really bore the brunt of just disgusting attacks. Out of whole cloth that he was a gang rapist and so forth. So I don't think they can go to that kind of place that kind of scandal and especially against the woman right and then also because judge Barrett went through some of this about her faith when she was before the Senate Judiciary Committee for Appeals Court Job.

"Fast forward button. The choice is yours enjoy the show they didn't always have hearings and I think it's very reasonable at this point, and even though Republicans are having hearings and Democrats didn't have hearings I think it's very reasonable to say, well, you know what we had hearings until you tried it out people who were knowingly false ponds accusing a man of gang rape and this is no longer productive that changes the decor. Here, we go with another change my mind this time, the topic that's on everyone's mind. Should pick the president. A president should fix. The justice. Jan this nomination through the Senate is just an exercise in wrong and political power leader. McConnell, and the Republican Senate majority have no right to fill.

No. I'm not gonNA play. His game. Even non. Answer Joe Biden gave. People deserve. A straight answer mentioned the possibility that you in this house could move to impeach. We have our options we have arrows in our quiver. He's a mandate and is not democracy. It's king travesty. Trump must be heated, must be destroyed, and then he and his enablers and his supporters the Amy Coney Barrett's must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our societies. Honestly you have to get rid of the electoral college six.

"Well it's hard to think of anything that could be more consequential than that. But what else is on the docket for the Supreme Court in this fall term? So the second case that I'm keeping a very close eye on is this case called Fulton. Fulton. Involves this issue that keeps coming up about whether or not people with religious objections to lgbt people are allowed to discriminate against them when the law says that. They aren't Didn't they just here case like this in the last term in twenty seventeen, they heard a case called masterpiece cake shop that involved a baker who didn't want to provide a wedding cake to a same sex couple. There are other cakes you don't create on religious grounds such as I don't create cakes for Halloween wouldn't create a cake that would be anti American or disparaging against anybody free reason. Even cakes. It would just disparage people who identify as Hell Gt. Cakes have a message and This is one that I can't create but that case kind of was resolved without much of an answer. You know they the Baker one but on extraordinarily narrow grounds and the broader question of whether people have faith can ignore civil rights laws is still open. And last term, there was a case called Baas talk the Supreme Court ruled the nineteen sixty four federal civil rights. Act protects employees from being fired for being gay or transgender Baas talk didn't deal with the religion issue at all Baas talk dealt with whether or not a current wall banning employment discrimination specifically bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity the Supreme Court said, yes, it does. So in theory it's illegal. To, fire someone because they're gay they're by or they're trans in practice. However, if the Supreme Court says that religion is a license to disobey an Antidiscrimination Law Bostock might not wind up meaning very much in the long run. Okay. And how might the precedent set by those two cases play into this third one? So this third case Fulton is unusual actually a bit surprised at the Supreme Court took this case and the reason why? Is All of these past cases like masterpiece cake shop dealt with a private business owner and the private business owner wanted to be able to discriminate within the sphere of his own property. Within this this fear of his own Business Fulton involves a government contractor, the city of Philadelphia contracts out certain services dealing with foster children to private entities including in this case, Catholic Social Services and Catholic social services says that it wants to be. Able to discriminate against same sex couples when it's providing these foster services for the government, it would be really extraordinary if the Supreme Court were to say that the government is not allowed to say that it won't discriminate and it's not allowed to order its employees and its contractors not to discriminate you might remember the Kim Davis case a while back where there was a local clerk who refuse to provide marriage licenses to same sex couples. Name for title one, a certificate that that authorizes married that conflicts with God's definition of marriage as a union between one man and one woman violates my deeply held religious convictions and conscience, and so if Fulton says that government contractors have a religious right to discriminate, the next step would be they could say that government employees have religious right to discriminate dude really just extraordinary. You know again it's one thing to say that private business owners can operate their own business according to their religious beliefs. It's another thing altogether to say that a religious organization can effectively force the government to operate according to the religious beliefs of that private organization. Okay. So Fulton obamacare huge cases coming up on this fall docket, and then of course, there's the election which you alluded to how might. The confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett. Have an effect on this election. So the short answer is we don't know you know the the question is whether we're going to be in a Bush v Gore situation where you have five justices who just think they would rather have the Republican in the White House or whether she's capable of saying look if we do this like there could be civil on rast and it could lead to an illegitimacy crisis or worse we do not want that And I'm sure the Supreme Court is hoping to not have to decide this election and I'm. Also. Sure much of the country would prefer the Supreme Court not decide this election but. Barring that I, mean what does amy conybeare its potential confirmations of Supreme Court mean for the for the next generation of this bench barring court packing in less Democrats, win such an enormous victory in November that they have the votes to add additional seats to the Supreme Court and fill them with Democrats. Emmy conybeare it's going to I mean she's forty eight years old. So she's GonNa be with us for thirty forty you know many many years to come. This is the culmination of a project that has gone on probably for the last several decades. Entrench minority rule in this country and Here's what I mean. By this Donald Trump lost the popular vote by nearly three million votes. Republicans control the majority in the Senate, but the Republican majority actually represents fifteen million fewer people than the democratic. Minority, it's only because the Senate is so Mala portion. That Republicans control majority the first Supreme, court justice in American history to be nominated by President, who lost the popular vote at confirmed by a block of senators that represent less than half the country was trump's first appointee neal gorsuch. The second was the second appointee, Brad Kavanagh and the third is likely to be Amy Coney Barrett. I fully understand that this is a momentous decision for president. And if the Senate does me the honor of confirming me I pledge to discharge the responsibilities of this job to the very best of my ability. So this has never happened before Donald. Trump were now likely to have a third of the Supreme Court controlled by justices who have no democratic legitimacy and that's I think very frightening. You know most Americans think that they live in democracy but because of the pathology, how we pick our presidents, how we pick our senators and ultimately how we pick our judges it means that a body that lacks democratic legitimacy is going to be striking down laws potentially.

That's the number four S., A. F. E. C. B. D. DOT org. I love the United, states an I love the United States Constitution. I am truly. I'm truly humbled by the prospect of serving on the Supreme Court. In how soon could amy conybeare be on the Supreme Court Republicans be talking as soon as October twenty nine for a confirmation and what's important about that Oct twenty nine date is that would be a few days before the election. This will end up in the Supreme Court and I think it's very important that we have nine justices. Several Republicans including trump have been very clear that they want Barrett on the court in time for any election related disputes which I think is raised. Very real fears that they want her on the poor because they think that if there's a contested election, she will throw the election to trump but just in case it would be. More, political than it should be I think it's very important to have a ninth just. And when does the Supreme Court start hearing cases again? So the new term begins October fifth on the first Monday of October surreally really soon really soon. Yeah. The court's GonNa be back very soon. Well, before we go to the election, let's talk about the cases justice. Amy conybeare would here in her first term on the court. So there's two cases I think are worth highlighting I'm one is the latest attack on Obamacare. The US Supreme Court will take up a legal challenge the affordable care act the issue at hand is regarding the constitutionality of laws individual mandate. This is the third time that Republican lawyers have been in the Supreme Court trying to get the Supreme Court to demolish the affordable care act at is the stupidest legal argument. I have ever seen I I. It's awful. Essentially, they argue that when Congress reduced the penalty for not having health insurance to zero dollars, they effectively eliminated the individual mandate that what Congress secretly dead when it repealed just the individual mandate is that actually repealed the entire affordable care act, and so now the Supreme Court has to go in and like realized this secret thing has happened at dismantle the whole law I mean I could go into more detail. But if I spent an hour explaining their legal theory, you knew it just sounds stupider I it's really dog. And so the hope is that even someone like Amy Coney Barrett who's very very conservative with look at this and say Oh hell no, that's to dom but. Three Republican judges have already largely exciting onto this legal theory. In order for Obamacare. Survive. Democrats have to pick up not just chief justice Roberts was likely to do so but one other. Republican. And I think there's a real question as to whether there is a second Republican vote who will say you know this is too partisan. This is too silly. This legal argument is too stupid. You know I think that there is going to be a temptation here to put their politics before the law. So on obamacare third go in front of the Supreme Court it could potentially Yes, and that would be. That would I mean the number that gets thrown around a lot is twenty million people with lose their health care. But that twenty million figures from before the pandemic and before millions of people lost their jobs at with it, their employer provided insurance. So I don't know what the number is now, but it could be you know twenty five or thirty million when you account for all of these people who are now depending on obamacare because they no longer have a job.

"Welcome to five to four where we dissect and analyze the supreme court cases that have. Rain Down Hellfire upon us like God onto Sodom. Nothing but ashes where our hopes wants were. You listening amy. I am Peter. I'm here with her Yanan A. and Michael. Everybody and today we are doing a special episode on trump's shiny nominee to the Supreme Court Amy Coney Barrett It's probably a good time to mention. We had some regular case is scheduled for October and September But we're going to abandon that and sort of just doing election based Supreme Court Extravaganza so. Buckle up. We're doing amy today we're GONNA do some gerrymandering campaign finance. Yeah. You know stuff like that electoral college and really explain to you why this is all happening so you can really fully comprehend it right before it happens in your life ends on November third. Stay tuned. You're welcome I do want to say to our listeners. Don't hurt yourself. Yeah To be bleak and it's like more bleak than ever but dislike, Llano, the fight goes on. Yeah and the podcast gets better. The worst things go it's they built deprive yourself of fucking bulled try for that. That's coming. Right. That's right. So trump over the weekend officially nominated Amy Conybeare it to the Supreme Court and that left everyone asking the same question, which is like what's this fucking ladies deal? Yeah. What's going on with her? So, we're here to talk a little bit about her past about her politics and religion about her jurisprudence and what to expect in the fight for her confirmation. Let's do it just a little thirty, thousand foot overview of amy conybeare currently a judge on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, which is the Federal Appeals Circuit that covers Illinois. Wisconsin and Indiana. She's only been there since trump appointed her there in two thousand seventeen she is almost without question one of the more conservative members of the federal. Judiciary. Yeah. So let's walk it back a little bit talk about how she got here. And you know I just want to highlight something that Peter already has said and I think we need to keep in mind when we're learning anything about conybeare it, she has been on the federal bench as a judge since twenty seventeen matt is if you're not a lawyer and can do math three years you guys. Are progenitor podcast. It's about as long as we have been. Correct. Okay. So conybeare, it was born in nineteen seventy two a little bit more math required here. But that's pretty recent. Her Dad was an attorney for Shell oil. Okay. Well there's been some reporting on her parents confirmed that as a child, she would often appear behind them in bathroom mirrors. Only, disappear when they turned around. So he graduated Rub Rhodes College in Nineteen Ninety four and she went straight to notre. Dame for law school where she graduated first in her class Amy Conybeare it. Can breed him She works for Judge Laurence Silberman on the prestigious DC circuit for a couple of years and Silberman himself is a bit of a right wing freak part of the Nixon administration and Reagan's campaign in nineteen eighty. Yeah and you may remember him from just a few months ago when he wrote a barely coherent typo ridden email all court staff in which he called the removal of confederate monuments the quote desecration of confederate graves and said quote my great great grandfather never owned slaves as best I can tell. Good, email. That's how I end all my emails and. Moving on Amy Conybeare then clerked after she clerked for Silberman for Justice Scalia himself on Everett that's right on the supreme court she clerked for him for a year from Nineteen Ninety, eight to ninety nine, and then she went into private practice for a little bit but pretty quickly thereafter, she doesn't spend a Lotta time in private practice she entered academia she was a law professor at George Washington for a Couple of years before returning to her law school Olma. Mater Notre Dame where she taught until trump put her on the federal bench like we said in twenty seventeen in real quick note does few years was in private practice that was like ninety, nine, two, thousand that year that sounds familiar. That is the year of Bush v Gore which in private practice she worked on I. Believe for Jeb Bush. Well. But defending in court. Suggest you know? A little historical color. Coney Barrett's well I'm sure that doesn't forboding anything. Over there, it's not relevant Michael. So. We reviewed some of the scholarship she published while she was a professor and to me there's one clear take away and it's that. Amy conybeare thinks about the law we do. That the law is about power and ideology. It's just that her ideology is far right religious zealotry. So in two thousand, thirteen, she published a law review article titled Precedent and Jurisprudential Disagreement where the thesis is essentially that the idea that the court should be bound by its prior precedent is incorrect. This is something we've talked about the idea that precedent is essentially an artificial constraint on the court that is not particularly useful or consistently applied. So in this broad conceptual way we agree with her but what she really means when she says this is like she does not feel the court should be bound by the liberal winds of the fifties and sixties and early seventies. In the article she specifically uses Roe v Wade as an example of why relying on precedent too heavily can be a mistake. She essentially says that the public reaction to row was so strong that it shows a public rejection of the idea that the court should be forced to adhere to precedent in the future and in case that's all like a bit abstract for you the same year she described row as quote creating through judicial Fiat, a framework for abortions on demand. So Amy. What she's on record saying that one, we do not need to respect the president of Roe v Wade and to she personally strongly disagrees with the decision. Yeah. Yeah I think you can see where this is going. And you know there's this longstanding tradition with conservative Supreme Court nominees where they're asked about whether they agree with Roe v Wade and they do like this little dance where they imply that like while they don't really agree with it they're going to respect the precedent. So for example, in two thousand, sixteen during the cavenaugh confirmation hearings, Brett Cavanaugh said quote as a general proposition I understand the importance. Of the precedent set forth in Roe v Wade but this is also a guy you know in his jurisprudence, right before his confirmation hearings, he was using that same abortions on demand language to talk about you know cases upholding Roe v Wade and protecting the abortion rate. So this is saying abortions on demand by.

"The name. Amy Coney Barrett for a couple of years. Now ever since this story came out that president trump was saving Barrett to someday day replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg like over the last three years pretty much any time I tweet anything about Justice Ginsburg trolls will respond something along the lines of she will die and we will replace her with Amy Coney Barrett's like it's been a constant drumbeat for three years now. As soon as the news broke, of Justice, GINSBURG staff, the the name on everyone's lips was amy conybeare I honestly feel like Republicans just placed her outside the cemetery gates and they were like as soon as Justice Ginsburg takes her last breath we will install you and I just feel like I have been trolled in. You know many legal analysts have been trolled about this for a very long time. It's like the maximal troll it is the final stage of the trump trawl like this is bad. It just doesn't get neutral earlier. I, mean you held out the possibility that Amy Kuney Barrett. Down the nomination why well Because, if you listen to her friends and her supporters like they all say, she's really smart which I believe she's really nice in person I believe. And Be a thoughtful analytical judge and I guess like. It seemed to me that if she were really is nice and empathetic, and as thoughtful as they claimed this, she would at a minimum not agreed to be trotted out at. A Rose Garden ceremony intentionally designed to look exactly like RPG's before our BG is literally in the ground like it just seems so ghoulish and she even mentioned at the ceremony like the flags are still at half staff.

Mark says one way to understand how many Barrett might rule as a Supreme Court justice is to look at the groups that are endorsing her right now like the Susan B, Anthony List, which seeks to advance leaders who are opposed to abortion, and now she said to give are pro life country court deserves. After. All this waiting. Tell the Senate tell everyone confirm amy conybeare it. There's also the federalist. Society Barrett was speaking at their events just last month. She is a longtime member of the Federalist Society. She has taken money from the federal society to travel around the country and give speeches. She is very much an entrenched part of the Federalist Society Culture and You know when we're talking about the federalist society, we're talking about this conservative network of attorneys. Begins in law school, but they're really everywhere and they sort of lift each other up into positions of power right and this was all created by a guy named Leonard Leo who was for a very long time the head of the federalist? Society he hand. The five conservatives who are on the court today and even though he has theoretically left, the group everyone seems to agree every rational person seems to agree that he's still playing a role during this confirmation battle. I think the president and Amy Coney Barrett herself have done a really good job of introducing who this potential justice is. The introduced her as a mom and a religious woman with seven kids real soft focus, Ghazi lighting kind of introduction. But I'm hoping you can introduce Amy Coney Barrett as a jurist. She's a pretty new federal judge, and so we don't have a ton of opinions to lean on here I mean what we do know is that she clerked for Justice Scalia he was her mentor and she went on to teach at Notre Dame and she was very beloved professor there. But she also while she was at Notre Dame, she made it very clear her conservative bent. I believe that she was on a faculty group. That was that said it was pro-life and I think that she also. took. A stance on the ACA. So.

"This is a Bloomberg radio special selecting the next Supreme Court justice I'm David Westin well president trump has made it official nominating easy Coney Vera to replace the late justice. Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the High Court, she is a woman of unparalleled achievement. Towering intellect sterling credentials and unyielding loyalty to the Constitution Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Pick that has the potential to shift the balance of the Supreme Court for decades to come over the next hour, we'll look at the implications, discuss the politics around the pick and examined Judge Barrett's record from her start as a clerk, for Justice Antonin, Scalia to our time on the bench of the Seventh Circuit, court, of appeals. But first, let's start with some initial reaction from. Our Bloomberg News and Bloomberg Law. Supreme Court reporters Greg Stohr and Kimberly strateg- Robinson. So Greg I'll start with you.

He was very seriously considering and it somebody who he interviewed before he selected Brad Kavanagh for the last opening. Saints. I'm Kimberly. It's important these days to know something about your nominee and likely to rule this nominee is an academic. She's written a fair amount. She said sort of how she approaches. So these Kinda no, her approach. Don't they. They do you when she was a professor at Notre Dame. She was there for a number of years. She really focused on originalism and statutory construction and really in the mold of her former boss Justice Scalia and on the seventh circuit while she hasn't been there that long just since October of two thousand. Seventeen that has been her record on the court following those judicial ideologies. When you hear things like originalism, which certainly something to Justice Scalia, a spouse you automatically almost think about Roe against Wade and abortion don't you, greg because that's something that the conservatives been saying for some time I don't see the the right to have an abortion in the constitution. You certainly do really hard to square. Roe. v Wade with the way that conservatives apply originalism and so yes, that that is almost an implicit criticism of the way that decision was made in any..
