Senate to confirm Trump's Supreme Court nominee a week ahead of Election Day
"Later today if you Senate majority leader Mitch, McConnell's predictions proved accurate the US Senate will vote to confirm amy coming Barrett to the US Supreme Court Bar will be the judge that the Republican Party has been able to put on the bench during President Donald Trump's term, and while she may not be the controversial of these herself her. Confirmation is the Republicans have breezily disregarded the convention which they invoked for years go to keep a barrack Obama nominee from even having confirmation hearings on joined with more on this by Christian mcnichols news editor and Claude Harrington associate professor of American politics at Montfort University. Claude first of all is this now actually a done deal is they the remotest chance at all Barrett doesn't get put on the bench? I think it's. All bots jail she seems to be there I. IT's. It's quite staggering to see how fast. The process can move when people actually wanted to unlike 'em time round as you mentioned just a moment ago. So yeah, I would say unnecess- some unanticipated and catastrophe she's had. Chris, the Republicans hypocrisy here is mildly staggering MRIs, of course, the same Republican Party that four years ago clutched polls and affected vipers at the very idea of even holding confirmation hearings for Merrick. Garland who Barack Obama wished to put on the court in the last year of his presidency they going to do this about a week out from a presidential election. But this isn't what justifies the trump thing in the as far as the Republican establishment is concerned absolutely I mean I think the issue is if you look at this from a purely political perspective taking out the the hypocrisy argument if you will Mitch McConnell and the Republicans in the Senate have achieved. What they wanted to achieve and they have, they have given people who voted for Donald Trump essentially what they wanted I think you can divide those who voted for Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen obviously into many different camps. But there were there were those who voted for trump himself. But then there were many who simply voted for a Republican with this in mind with the idea in minded, they would be able. Influence. The Supreme Court for decades to come remember as you said at the beginning Obama was denied I'm nominee that meant that there was a vacant spot open right when Donald trump was elected president, which was then filled and that in itself would have been a dramatic swing in the other direction. So we shouldn't forget that it was a very conservative Justice Antonin Scalia who had passed away or shortly before the two thousand sixteen. Election. So we have seen a dramatic shift in the court compared to what would have happened if Hillary Clinton had been elected president and so in that sense. Yes. From a purely political perspective, the Senate Mitch McConnell who is a traditional Republican was You could argue very much power political individual who was willing to stomach donald trump and some of his politics because he knew that this is what he would be able to achieve. At once amy conybeare. At ease confirmed, that will give the Supreme Court, a six three conservative majority. Now, that's not absolutely set in stone Supreme Court justices have been known to have minds of their own from time to time, but is it possible from distance to assess what difference that could make to American politics for as Chris quite rightly points out potentially decades ahead of us. Yes I think that that's absolutely not an overstatement to to to to say how significant this is. You know what they did. There would be an ideological. Conservative majority from this point on and. There's a couple of things I suppose one is. What it might mean in terms of what's coming before the court you know in the short to medium term I mean there are. Big issues coming down the road to do you know things on climate change on immigration and other major. Political stumbling blocks the one that's coming soon as I really am the one that's going to get the most attention for the moment is a vote on the for care act and that is coming before the courtroom, November and it's about rather than the the. Statute in its entirety is to be deemed unconstitutional or can can parts of it be on picked now? Komi Bats. Take on. This is going to be enormously important because if there is a possibility that's M obamacare in its entirety could be undermined and that's that's a fairly enormous moment. I think for the country not least when it's in the the grip ave, a public health crisis. Chris at the top of the show, we did play a quote by senator. McConnell which struck me as slightly all I don't know whether he misspoke or just found himself saying the quiet out loud. But he said a lot of what we've done over the last four years. We'll be undone sooner or later by the next election is that Mitch McConnell assuming or perhaps even hoping that trump gets beaten next Tuesday It wasn't interesting remark wasn't it? It's it's hard to say I think there might be a little bit of that in in his remarks you can read into it I do think more importantly though his comment related to what I was saying earlier I would argue that he is making this case almost a gloating case to say you can undo whenever you win whether it is in November as the polls suggest. Currently or not you can. You can undo much of what we did in the four years in electoral terms in legislative terms I should say, but you cannot undo what we've done on the court that will remain that will remain something that stays for a long period of time. The one thing I just wanted to say on that as well. I think it will be interesting with this conservative majority To really see how aggressively they go after that to to Mitch McConnell's point if you will things like the affordable care act they were passed by Congress if there is a Democratic president with Joe Joe Biden becoming president, they will have an opportunity to pass laws to to to change laws as well. Of course. So the question really will be to what extent this cord goes after laws declaring things. Versus giving Congress an opportunity to sort of legislate when it comes to things like healthcare as well. There were some interesting remarks I just add for Amy Coney Barrett on this in the past, he's talked about the idea of precedent the idea of who legislates when when you overturn precedent and she did have a little bit of a line to say she will own the overturn precedence. If there is still controversy in a certain issue. So if it is something that is divisive and it has not been decided if there is an overwhelming public support for something, she also believes that it's not the courts job to overturn it, and so that I think will be a key thing to watch going forward if we have say a democratic President Democratic majority but a conservative court. Claude if next Tuesday is a big win for the democratic. Party. As Senator Mitch McConnell appears to think it's going to be the not completely without options are there is the possibility as has been floated off expanding the Supreme Court but do you think a democratic administration would be willing to spend political capital doing that? Yes. It's interesting to see how the the the kind of the tightrope that Biden has been walking in his language on this topic and you know any mention of packing the court does. Bays alarm bells, I think in causes some concern people start talking about FDR on his efforts back in the day. I would say, maybe there might be an possibly needs to be a conversation about reforming court gets in its current. Is. Having become such a punishment killed body and it's certainly not what the framers set out to be, and the does probably you know some serious conversations that need to be had I suppose as one other point as well. Maybe just more. And immediately, is that the last male liberal on the court Stephen Prayer is the HVAC too. So. I. Mean He seems in relatively good shape put. It's quite likely that whoever is President the next four years, we'll have the opportunity to put. A new justice on the court. So that's just something to think about in terms of the balance clothes. Harrington Christian. Thank you both for joining
Amy Coney Barrett & The State of SCOTUS
"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
"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.
Barrett faces questions on Day 2 of Senate hearings
"Day two of the confirmation hearings for Amy Cockney Barrett with the 10 o'clock report. I'm Sarah Elise Breaking. Now It's the second day in the confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Cockney bear it to the Supreme Court. But the first day of direct questioning Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, starting the questioning, asking if there it could clarify her beliefs. As an originalist. I interpret the Constitution as a law that I interpret it's Texas text, and I understand it tohave the meaning that it had. At the time People ratified it. That meaning doesn't change over time, and it's not up to me to update it or infused my own policy views into it. While Barry says she's an admirer of her mentor, Justice Antonin Scalia, If I'm confirmed, you would not be getting justice Scalia You would be getting justice Barritt. Pointing out that even originalist can disagree in their interpretation of the Constitution and of law. It's looking to be a long day in the committee room. Each of the 22 senators on the committee will get a half a hour of questioning time. Dave
Amy Coney Barrett set for Day 2 of confirmation hearing
"The Senate Judiciary Committee returns this morning for day two of Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. On the first day. Yesterday, we heard opening statements from members of the committee. Republicans made the case for Barrett's confirmation. Here's Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham. There's nothing unconstitutional about this process. This is a vacancy that's occurred there tragic loss of a great woman. And we're going to feel that they could see with another great woman. Democrats, meanwhile, said they're Republican colleagues are rushing this effort, and they tried to paint Barrett as a threat to the affordable care act. Now today, members will get their chance to ask her questions directly. We've got NPR Congressional reporter client great solace with us this morning. Hi, Claudia. Hi, Rachel. So what did each party the members of the committee Democrats and Republicans? What did they try to accomplish in the first day hearings yesterday? This was an opportunity for senators to frame her nomination. They did most of the talking. After all, Republicans painted bared as a worthy successor to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but in the mold of barrettes mentor and that's the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Democrats underscored the rush to confirm Barrett in the midst of a pandemic. Remember Two of the GOP members tested positive for the illness this month, and one Mike Lee of Utah, showed up yesterday, less than two weeks after his diagnosis. He also showcased what at what's at stake. Senator Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, who also sits on the committee dialed in to participate. Let's take a listen By replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with someone who will undo her legacy. President Trump is attempting to roll that Americans rides the decades to come. So Democrats highlighted concerns that barrettes nomination is being rushed so she could be seated in time if there's a dispute tied to the presidential election and to rule on an affordable care act case that will come before the court next month. So they shared worries that she could limit the A or abortion rights tied to the landmark case. Roe v. Wade. Republicans, meanwhile, tried to portray Democrats is anti Catholic, even though not one raised the religious belief issue right so yesterday was all about opening statements, and Barrett herself gave her statement what we learned for that. She said. Although she was nominated to succeed Ginsberg, no one could ever take her place. She said she closely followed Scalia's judicial philosophy. She clerked for him. Let's take a listen. His judicial philosophy was straightforward. A judge must apply the law as it is written. Not as she wishes it worked. Sometimes that approach met reaching results that he did not like. But as he put it in one of his best known opinions, that is what it means to say that we have a government of laws and not of men. She also noted that the courts have a vital responsibility to enforce the rule of law, but that policy decisions are better left to the legislative branch. So today, the official questioning begins, right and presumably, we're going to hear a lot of what we heard yesterday on the affordable care act, but in the form of questions to Judge Barrett, yes, members will question Barrett on our position on a lot of these key issues such as health care, an abortion rights. Each senator will get 30 minutes to question Barrett. So with 22 members, this could prove to be a much longer day. Republicans will use this to highlight her conservative judicial record. While Democrats will grill Barrett on conflicts of interest and how she'd rule on future cases will press her again recused herself in some of these instances, such as the day or if there's a dispute with the election, But as she's done during private calls with Democrats, you'll likely declined to make such commitments or share how she might rule on these issues
Amy Coney Barrett vows to interpret laws as they are written
"I'm Anthony Davis. Supreme Court nominee Amy Kuney Barrett's declared on Monday that Americans deserve an independent Supreme Court that interprets constitution and laws as they were written encapsulating her.

Barrett spoke about her judicial philosophy, her experience and to launch family at the end of the first day of her fast tracked confirmation hearings that Senate Democrats are using to try and brand her a threat to Americans healthcare during the coronavirus pandemic.

"She was a woman of enormous talents and consequence, and her life of public service serves as an example to us all. Particularly pregnant to me, was her long and deep friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia, my own mentor. Justices Scalia and Ginsburg disagreed. Fiercely and print Without rancor in person. Their ability to maintain a warm and rich friendship, despite their differences, even inspired an opera. These two great Americans demonstrated that arguments even about matters of great consequence need not destroy affection. And both my personal and professional relationships. I strive to meet that standard. I was lucky enough to clerk for Justice Scalia and given his incalculable influence on my life. I am very moved to have members of the Scalia family here today, including his dear wife, Maureen. I clerked for Justice Scalia more than 20 years ago, but the lessons I learned still resonate. His judicial philosophy is mine, too. A judge must apply the law as written. Judges are not policy makers, and they must be resolute and setting aside any policy views they might hold. The president has asked me to become the ninth Justice. And as it happens, I'm used to being in a group of nine. My family. Our family includes me, My husband, Jesse. Emma Vivian test John Peter. Liam Juliet and Benjamin Vivian and John Peter, as the president said, We're born in Haiti, and they came to us five years apart when they were very young. And the most revealing fact about Benjamin. Our youngest is that his brothers and sisters unreservedly identify him as their favorite sibling. Our Children obviously make our life very full. While I am a judge, I'm better known back home as a room parents, carpool driver and birthday party planner when schools went remote last spring, I tried on another hat. Jesse and I became co principles of the Bharat Be Learning Academy. And yes, the list of enrolled students was a very long one. Our Children are my greatest joy, even though they deprive me of any reasonable amount of sleep. I couldn't manage this very full life without the unwavering support of my husband, Jesse. At the start of our marriage. I imagine that we would run our household is partners. As it has turned out, Jesse does far more than his share of the work. To my chagrin. I learned to dinner recently that my Children consider him to be the better cook. For 21 years, Jessie has asked me every single morning what he can do for me that day. And though I almost always say nothing, he still finds ways to take things off my plate. And that's not because he has a lot of free time. He has a busy law practice. It's because he has a superb and generous husband and I am very fortunate. Jesse.

But we already know these choose Who's he choosing Amy Cockney Barrett Worst kept secret. Lot of people. I think the moderates And people who wanted to see it be a little bit less contentious, were hoping that it was going to be barbell AGOA, who was Ah 52. She's from Florida. She was just confirmed about nine months ago and confirmed it away. In today's age. That was pretty bipartisan. I think she had 89 or 83 votes. But Amy Cockney Barrett is the exact opposite of that she is well, she's everything that the left and the Democrats hate. Pro Life Pro gun. She is the second coming of Antonin Scalia and she's young. She's generational. She'll be on this court for 30, plus years a devout Catholic seven Children. Very much pro life. And in fact, Barbara, you know, I mean, Dianne Feinstein came out and basically attacked her religion, You know, kind of saying, like, you know, the dogma of your religion and you know this. Ah, this really runs deep, just really condescending, like she wouldn't do that to somebody who is Muslim or Jewish. But for whatever reason she came after why? Because she's pro life. This is the world we live in. I don't know why Republicans and Democrats have to hate each other, and I'm not even talking about in Congress. I'm talking about like those two say on Facebook. Well, because there's no accountability. I just don't get it. I like somebody's different from you. So you're going to hate that person. And I'm talking about hate. Yeah, okay, because because what you see out there And I gotta tell you, I think Trump is is a big part of this. I really do because long before that, I know, but he loves to hate the other side, and he loves to stir his his base and stir the pot to also hate the other side. And there's no reason. So what if the other side feels differently than you do? I mean, why are we calling each other names? Why did you do that? They hated W right. The left the right hated Obama, which was stupid. I mean, I continue to say this. First of all, I had no problems with Obama thought he did some good things. Thought he did some bad things. I thought he got us into many wars. I'm just going to say one was too many, but dropping 20,000 bombs. It was not a good thing at the end of the day, though. I didn't have a problem the way that other people did. He's going to and you know for Sharia law and he's going to take your guns and stuff. Both sides. I think the problem is is The bass takes it very serious. They're fighting with each other. You can have a disdain for Nancy Pelosi because she has a disdain for for the other side. But the difference is is we have transferred that, too. We have a disdain for each other. I saw great quote today that says I don't care who you voted for or against. All I care about is how do you treat the person that voted differently than you? That's absolutely true. That's it right. We don't do that. No, there's a civil war going on and its people and its voters. The people who vote Republican versus people who vote Democrat and both sides now actually just hate each other. The funny thing is the civil War from owt. For most people, it's It's It's It's online. It has to be an app. I'm telling you like, what's going to happen this weekend. Portland is very small.

The relationship between Justice Scalia and RBG
"Lies in state in the Capitol today, the first woman ever given that honor in the first Supreme Court justice since William Howard Taft and he'd also been the president. Justice. Ginsburg's casket was at the court for two days for people to pay their respects, including President Trump, and the first lady booed when they got there. The president has had nice things to say about Justice Ginsburg since her death, you may agree. You may not disagree with her, but he was an inspiration to a tremendous number of people. I say all Americans, and now, he says, it's his job to fill that seat on the court. I think it's very important that we have nine justices. And I think the system is going to go very quickly. The president plans to announce his nominee tomorrow. Joe Biden, and a lot of other Democrats say he should fill that seat if he wins the election in light of Republicans blocking President Obama from filling a seat in an election year, the seat President Obama would have filled incident. Scalia's went to Neil Gorsuch instead of Merrick Garland. For all the fighting. There's been over Justices Scalia and Ginsburg in life. They were very good friends. People always find it surprising that they were such good friends, Christopher Scully's the Eighth of Incident. Scalia's nine Children. There's a new collection published of his father's writing called The Essential Scalia. Their friendship went back. Really to the early eighties, when they were judges together on the D C circuit Court of Appeals, which is kind of like the second most important court in the country, and they they had a good working relationship that which really started back then they would help each other revised their drafts and their opinions. Apparently, the other judges on that court really didn't like getting advice about their writing and how to improve the clarity of what they're writing in the force of their arguments. But Justice Ginsburg liked getting and receiving that kind of advice, and so did my dad, and they formed what he called a mutual improvement society during their time on the court there. And And they had other things in common. They were they had similar backgrounds and that they were both New Yorkers grew up in New York around the same time, different boroughs but around the same time and shared a love of opera. Good wine eating good food. Both of their thousands were excellent cooks. Marty Ginsburg, in particular, is kind of a legendary cook, who would put together wonderful meals every New Year's Eve and they would celebrate New Year's Every every year is well. So you know, despite all their differences, and all the many things they disagreed about, including a number of opinions in this collection. They had a wonderful friendship were able to kind of focus on the things they had in common. Your dad in Justice Ginsburg, I don't know the statistics on how often they concurred or dissented on cases. But I imagine that they disagreed. Maybe as much as any two Recent justices have my right. Yeah, I think that that sounds right. I don't know the statistics, either. I think people would be surprised by how often they agreed with each other. But on the real hot button cultural cases, they often disagreed one of her most important, most famous opinions. Was Virginia Military Institute case from the mid nineties. And my My father wrote a dissent to that case, which is in this collection, the essentials, Scalia and it was hey actually gave her the draft of that descent a little bit earlier than one usually does just so that she would have more time to kind of Deal with it and grapple grapple with his arguments. And and, yeah, some of his most staying the sense we're in response to opinions. She didn't necessarily right but but joined, And I think that's probably true. Vice versa. Tell us very about the big bouquet of roses she got from him. My dad would get her roses for her birthday and I guess the Ah, I think the last time he did that. So the year before he died, one of the editors of the Essential Scalia Judge Jeffrey Sutton was visiting my father in chambers on on Justice Ginsburg's birthday. And he saw that my dad had two dozen roses for Justice Ginsburg and Judge Sutton started teasing Dad saying, You know, I haven't even gotten my wife two dozen roses over the course of our entire marriage. Why would you do this? And besides, When was the last time she cited with you on a really important 54 decision? You know, he's poking fun, You know, not not really being serious, but My dad gave a serious answer, which was some things are more important than votes. As I think I just kind of a great encapsulation of their of their relationship of their friendship they had they had Very different opinions of politics and of their jobs as a zoo judges and of what laws, men and with the Constitution, man. But, uh, how they voted wasn't the biggest factor in their relationship. It wasn't that those opinions didn't matter. And it wasn't that they compromised their beliefs for each other. But they didn't let those very strongly held beliefs undermine their very deep friendship collection of Supreme Court. Justice Antonin Scalia is writing sort of like a greatest hits album. It's opinions and other writing about the law and the Constitution again called the Essential Scalia. This is really just a collection of his greatest Legal writings, opinions, speeches, essays and they collected together give a really good sense of white. Exactly. He was such a significant Supreme Court justice on it. They're having in one collection really makes it tangible for anybody understand that we'll just as a legal reference work. You've got to think it's going to end up being bought by or four A lot of lawyers and judges know absolutely in law students. I hope you know that he he wrote. Clearly, he wrote, Hey, had so many memorable phrases and his opinions. His logic was so strong and convincing that people just kind of they often went to his opinions first. And so it's good for people to kind of have that as a resource to keep going to those opinions. Even you know, even after His passing is also besides the legal community. It's also like you said. It's very readable, even for non lawyers for just a general interest audience who might, but he was just simply a very, very good writer. Yeah, it's exactly right. He hey, wrote. For? I guess we would now call it out of transparency. You know, Even when he was writing Supreme court opinions, he understood that they should be understood themselves by everyday citizens, not just legal eagles and people with legal degrees. He kind of a recurring theme of his opinions. Is that people should know what the court courts are doing and people that the court should not usurp power that properly belongs to the people. And I think that kind of reverence for the Democratic order is is kind of manifest in his in the clarity of his writing a lot of times if he had a vote, a personal vote on how a case would turn out it may or may not a lot of times did a line with how he ruled, But sometimes it probably wouldn't have right. Yeah, I think that's true. And that's especially true in one example is when he sided with the majority in a flag burning case. The majority ruled that, um, it was constitutional sorry from burning the flag was constitutionally protected speech under the First Amendment so prohibiting that in the state law was unconstitutional. My father often explained that he did not like Three idea of flag burning. If he were a king, he would ban it. But clearly to him falls under the protection of the protection of the First Amendment, and a lot of conservatives to this day do not like that opinion. My father thought the Constitution was clear about that. There are many examples in this collection, the essential Scalia of instances in which he stands up for the rights of the accused defendant's rights. There's a famous case in here where search and seizure cases as well there a couple of those in here where he just thought, you know the police do not have authority, for example, to use Scans of houses, Tio identify Marilou who was growing marijuana without that was an illegal search examples like that s so if he could just pass a law That was one thing, but actually sorry, there couldn't be even be lost for that because they so clearly violated the Constitution, even though obviously he wouldn't have approved of those particular actions. Sure. Hey, was also notice the talker during oral arguments. He has asked a lot of questions and clearly sometimes, though, they weren't really questions. They were just arguments he was making to his fellow justices. Do you think he went into most cases with his mind made up based on the briefs, and the president is a bad thing, but not usually the case. I think that the justices, you know, I can't say for certain, but my hunch is that they often have to go in with a pretty good idea, but I think for the most part, they do ask questions, not just Not just to be heard or not just to make arguments, but because they want to really engage with the arguments that the lawyers are making in the forward to this collection, Justice Kegan first of all, very happy that she agreed to write this beautiful forward, But she she says that she says just that, you know, Dad would ask these questions because he loved argument and kind of loved mixing it up. It wasn't just kind of wasn't just for show though he did. I think you're right. He was very kind of an engaging speaker and There was some study years ago that that found he was. He was the funniest justice by the standards of he drew the most laughter from the courtroom during oral arguments, which obviously isn't the most important thing to do, but just shows how much he he enjoyed that process that love for debate. Did it? Was it a two way street was? Was he persuadable? Absolutely. That's something justice Kagan mentions in her forward. She doesn't say when she ever changed his mind, but says They change each other's minds at times. Well, Christopher Scalia, It was great to talk, Teo, The book is called The Essential Scalia on the Constitution, the courts and the rule of law. Chris Scalia. Really good to talk to you. Thanks so much, Thanks so much appreciate your time.

Judge dreadthe fight for Ruth Bader Ginsburgs seat
"On Friday US Supreme Court. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died of cancer at the age of eighty seven. A candlelit vigil was held the following day outside the Supreme Court. Justice. GINSBURG was only the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court after being nominated by Bill Clinton in one thousand, nine hundred. I. In. Solemnly swear he was a champion of women's rights, and later in life she achieved restore status especially among young women. Now her death has set the stage for a divisive battle to replace her on the court. She was born in Brooklyn to an immigrant Father Dad was from Odessa in in Russia and to a first generation mother she was Jewish John. Fascination is the economist Washington correspondent and she was a trailblazer throughout her life. She was one of only nine women among five hundred men at Harvard law school, and when she arrived. Erwin griswold, who was then the Dean asked women in the class to stand up and justify taking a spot that could have gone to a man. She said the reason she took the spot is it was important that she understood her husband's work that would've made her husband Marty last Mardi was tax attorney well known in his own right he predeceased her but they had a famously loving and productive and equal partnership. She had a relentless work ethic in. Twenty five years in the Supreme Court she never missed today she's arrived four bouts of cancer before this fifth one killed her it was only after she got sick that she called by phone to oral arguments. I. Think People often have this idea that Supreme Court justices are sort of Stentorian wizards ready to shout down lawyer who they disagree with justice. GINSBURG was not like that she spoke very slowly very deliberately, which mirrors I think how she wrote and how she argued and how she thought she was meticulous. She was precise she she was not a showy justice. She came onto the court actually considered a moderate. There are a lot of people on the left who were upset when she was appointed because she was considered sort of two centrist. But as the court steadily moved rightward during her tenure, she has found herself the de facto leader of the courts liberal wing. Junk she spent a long time on the court. What did she achieve? Well, she was on the Supreme Court for Twenty seven years, and before that was on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, which is widely considered the second most important court in America for for thirteen. So she was a judge for forty years I was age sixty when I was nominated in some people thought I was. Too Old for the job. Now I'm into my twenty-seventh starting my twenty-seventh year on the courts on one of the longest tenured. Justices. So if you worried about my age. It was unnecessary. Before that, she argued six cases before the Supreme Court and she was involved with thirty more as the first director of the US women's rights project. The first of those report court cases was in Reid versus Reid for which she wrote a brief arguing against the law in Ohio that preferred men to women in naming executive estates. She won that case in her first oral argument before the Supreme Court. She argued against the military policy that denied many husbands, officers, the same housing and medical benefits that automatically provided officers. Wise. The thinking was that women are somehow inherently more dependent on their husbands and husbands on their wise. Now, in that case, remember she effectively represented the husband she represented family but she represented the shoes argue in favor of the husband's benefits and she austin said that she was not arguing for women's rights she was arguing for the constitutional equality of men and women. Her death is come at a critical time in American politics. It's just six weeks away from the election. So what impact does that have? Well I think it's a little too early to say that definitively. It looks as though both sides are gearing up for battle, but they seem to be quietly circling each other in two thousand sixteen. The Supreme Court is central to Donald Trump's success I think because. There is an open seat in two thousand, Sixteen Justice Antonin Scalia died, and Mitch McConnell who is then the Senate minority leader rather than hold a hearing on Barack Obama's chosen replacement for Justice Scalia whose Merrick Garland he came up with a rationale disguises the principle which was that the causing election was coming up the speech beheld open. So the voters could decide now that had never been done before it was clearly a power play. It was a live sort of issue for Republicans impelled I think a lot of them who otherwise would have held donald trump at arm's length to decide that just had to vote for him this time I. Think Donald Trump is hoping for a similar effect this time, but he also wants to get the filled as quickly as possible. For Democrats donations had started pouring in, they have been pouring all weekend. Democrats seem riled up by this. I think in their view if Donald Trump managed to get a successor onto the court, this'll be the seconds effectively stolen seat right? The I was Neil Gorsuch. who was given the seat that was held open by Mitch McConnell, and the second would be whoever donald trump nominees to replace justice GINSBURG who gets the seat because Mitch McConnell did not follow the principle he set up in two thousand sixteen. John Do you think Senate. Republicans have the numbers to they have the votes to get in trump's nominee through before the election. Well this is the question on everyone's mind. Right so far Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski Republican senators from from Maine Alaska, had said that they will not vote for replacement before November third they have said that the president who wins on November third you choose the replacement now that only gets Democrats to forty nine and they need fifty one because in the case of a tie Mike. Pence cast the tiebreaking vote Lindsey Graham had previously said he would abide by Mitch McConnell's rule from twenty sixteen. He has now gone back on that apparently because he's angry Democrats didn't roll over for Brad Cavanaugh Chuck. Grassley, who's a senator from Iowa has also previously spoken in favor of McConnell's precedent. I, have a very hard time imagining that when push comes to shove, he'll stand by his. Word and so there really is nothing Democrats can do unless they can persuade two other Republicans to come join them, and if they can't persuade those Republicans and tip the balance what happens. Then what are the consequences for the years ahead on American politics? It's clear that what McConnell did in two thousand sixteen was a tremendous violation of norms I think it's not a good principal to. Uphold I think arguing that this is now how Supreme Court seats should be awarded that in an election year, you effectively have to hold the seat open until the end of the election is a bad precedent but I think there's a difference between saying Republicans should be consistent for the sake of consistency and Republicans should follow this principle because that's how court seat should be given out now. From the Democratic Base, there's been a tremendous push to threaten Republicans with repercussions if. Retake. The Senate and the president in that includes making Puerto Rico in Washington DC states, which would effectively at least in the near in medium-term Give Democrats four senators people have also been talking about expanding the court. So the reason they are Nice Ring Court justices is not constitutional legal. It's just a statute. So if they were minded and had a majority had a president who would sign it into law, they put eleven or thirteen justices on the supreme court. The problem with that for Democrats I think is that it sort of shifts the terms. Of the debate that they are now winning I think the way Joe, Biden has pitched. This campaign is on the one hand. You have the sort of chaotic destructive Donald Trump on the other. You have Joe Biden Palm known figure who will get us back to normal. If, he comes out and endorses expanding the court or State of DC in Puerto Rico, which to be clear he has not done. He is actually a opposed expanded from court but if he comes out if Democrats threaten this, then the debate becomes a lot murkier. Then it becomes the radical change that Joe Biden wants to do right take fifty, two states and putting thirteen on Supreme Court against Donald Trump will keep things as are I think that debate does not play out very well for Democrats. John Thank you very much time.

And Ron Levin is William r orthwein distinguished professor of law at Washington University in Saint Louis school of law where he specializes in administrative law and has published widely in that field. He is a senior fellow in the administrative conference of the United States and the co author of several casebooks on ministry of law, including administrative law and process in a nutshell, Ron. Amicus brief and Kaiser on behalf of the respondent, Robert Wilkie, the secretary of veterans affairs. Ron it's great to have you at us. Thanks very much for inviting me rum. Let's begin with you could you tell us briefly what the facts of the Kaiser case are and tell us about our deference, and what's at stake there. Kaiser was a veteran who suffered an injury during the Vietnam war and he filed for disability benefits in nineteen eighty two. And he was turned down. He said that he had been he had suffering from a PTSD. But that the the the the Veterans Administration didn't believe as evidence was sufficient on that he later came back in two thousand six and reapplied and this time he was up held. But so as benefits with with begin as of that time, but there was a question of whether he would get back benefits. For the earlier period. And that dependent on a regulation of of the veteran's administration veteran's administration says you can get retroactive benefits if you supply relevant service records that were not considered the first time, and he says, I did that because I hear your some records that show that I was part of the battle that I that I claim gave me PTSD the government says, well, the the problem with that is it was assumed all wrong, but you had been in that battle the records. Don't add anything new. So that's not what relevant records within the meaning of the regulation are about. That's a dispute the board of veterans appeals rejected Mr. hours claim at then went to the court of veterans claims which also rejected and then he went to the federal circuit US court of appeals court of appeal says while we aren't sure how to interpret this, but we will defer. For the agency on the basis of what is known as our deference. Which is also known as seminal rock deference because you have to cases that have articulated the same test to the same tests. They fit fade is that a reviewing court should give an eight mystery of agencies interpretation of its own regulation controlling weight unless it is plainly aronie ass- or inconsistent with the regulation and here the federal circuit was thought well near those conditions satisfied. So we will follow the regulation. The quest. The supreme court has now granted sir to decide whether to overrule our deference, and as Jeff mentioned, I found a brief along with some other professors arguing that it should be retained just briefly why our deference seems to us a good idea. Sometimes the agency will actually written the regulation recently. So they know firsthand what it means or how it was tended to operate..

"Also, you'll be supporting the journalism that we do here at slate. And now back to the show joining us now is Richard Hassen. He teaches law and political science at UC Irvine school of law. He is also the go-to guy at the. Election law, blog and hosts that blogs election love love-love podcast. We had him on the show this last summer to discuss his most recent book, the Justice of contradictions Antonin Scalia and the politics of disruption, but in this run up to the midterms. We wanted to have him on to ask about the fallout from supreme court cases, like Shelby county and the voting rights cases from this past term. And how if at all those cases are going to affect to the November elections and how they inform what feels like the freakout. We're seeing this week around whether we will ever have free and fair elections again. Welcome to the podcast. Right. So glad to be back with you. And I guess that's my first question is it are we just doing the same old freakout dance about, you know, vote suppression and gerrymandering and machina regularities at all the stuff that happens every single election in every single year. You say maybe we should. About this and not wait till the week before elections. Or is this a different flavor of freak out in your view, while I think it's kind of a complex picture of what's going on right now. And as I wrote in slate recently, it's really that we have to America's and it's not red state American blue state America, quite that in lots of states, including in a number of red states. It's become considerably easier to register to vote. And although there are some problems people are doing the best they can to ensure that all eligible voters can easily register in Kosovo that can count. So for example, online voter registration. It's a big deal and lots of states, not just in blue states, even automatic voter registrations coming to some red and purple states. And so in lots of the country things are getting better. They may not be good enough. But they're getting better. But then there are other parts of the country, and these all tend to be red state. But again, it's not all red states where new more restrictive registration and voting rules have come into place where the way that elections are being conducted raises at least the potential that things are being done to disenfranchise minority voters voters were likely to vote for Democrats and thanks to a couple of supreme court decisions. And thanks to the fact that the constitution gives considerable authority to state local governments to run even federal elections. There's a lot of room for maneuvering that could affect whether or not someone's going to be able to cast a ballot and without the parts of the Voting Rights Act that the supreme court killed in the Shelby cana- case in two thousand thirteen there is a requirement of trench warfare. That is every single election. Change has to be fought in the courts, and is draining the resources the voting rights organizations. And it is impossible to go after every single case. And in a place like Georgia, which has been I think the headline this election there. I think there were last count five lawsuits over voting rules and just there's just so much going on. It's hard to keep track of it. But it does seem like to me that in those places that have decided to make it harder to register and vote they have freer rein than before. So freak out is in order at this point. So so just to be super clear your carbon dating this to Shelby county and the evisceration of key components of the Voting Rights Act. You're not carbon dating it to this past June right to the gerrymandering the voter purges, the the stuff that we saw at the very end of the term that I think we most of us missed you didn't. But in the drama around just as Kennedy's retirement, we missed that. There was a pretty serious supreme court decision to get out of the we're gonna we're gonna watch. This carefully business. It's that's not what we're seeing playing out. Now. Right..

"We're is the conciliation one side says, we shouldn't kill unborn babies. The other side says, we should kill unborn babies up until right before birth. Abortion on demand paid for by taxpayers. Where's the conciliation? That is actually the perfect. Example of trying to split the baby. You can't split the baby. Why would you the right is in the right on this there in the right of morally, but they're in the right politically to pro-life causes gained a lot of traction since Roe versus Wade. It's at historical high levels of support. Why would you give up on that? Unequated like the redefinition of marriage. We, we're the supreme court. Anthony Kennedy yanked said issue out of the public sphere and says, you can't debate this anymore because I Anthony Kennedy will wax poetic about the the constitutional right to intimacy or whatever they made up their which Antonin Scalia made fun of in his descent. Where's the conciliation? Do we say, okay, we'll the supreme court can redefine certain essential human institutions, but not others. Oh, well, maybe. Okay here. So radical leftists wanna redefine marriage to include, you know, polygamous who knows what unions and normal people say that marriage has a meaning and sexual difference in, here's in the definition of marriage. So k maybe it'll be three people of areas. No, there's no conciliation were talking about the meaning of words where's? Where's the conciliation on any other policy on foreign policy on domestic affairs on deregulation? One side says, we want the government to have less control of your life. We want them to have more accountability. The other side says, we wanna give more and more power more and more of your money more and more control of your life to the federal government. There's no conciliation there. And also why would have you noticed that the left only calls for conciliation when they're losing when we are advancing, we're advance. Right now we are winning. I mean, this has been building for for a long time. This has been building since two thousand ten after the Obama election in two thousand eight, twenty ten. We win the house. After that we win the Senate, we win the state houses. We win the governorships. This is capped off by the election of Trump in two thousand sixteen. We take the White House. We've got everything. Anthony Kennedy leaves the supreme court. We gonna more originalist judge which changes the balance of the court. We are winning and all of a sudden the left says, oh, no, no. Now we need to get along. Where were you? Six years ago pals. Where were you when Barack Obama was painting the White House in rainbow colors? Were you saying we need to be nice to one another and meet in the middle then? I don't think so. It's so cynical at such a cynical and such a transparent strategy look at what they're doing on the cold civil war. Look at what some hysterical millennial is doing to Pablo Escobar himself, cocaine, Mitch, just trying to have dinner with his wife and a restaurant..
"antonin scalia" Discussed on Two Broads Talking Politics
"And protect public health and safety at the same time because my view was at one of the fundamental roles of government is to protect public health and safety. I mean, the talks about that in the constitution talks about the preamble to the declaration, all those things general welfare and health and well. Be life and happiness. And I think there are some places where commonsense will work. I think background checks, universal background checks, make sense. You know, for example, I think twenty two percent or somewhere in that city of guns are purchased without background checks. You know, twenty two percent of people could drive a car without saying, you drivers getting a driver's license. There'd be carnage on the highways and nobody would accept that. So I think it's reasonable for us for us to expect to do the to do that with with firearms age-limit as well. You know, when we bought our children, their first rifles, you know, they didn't go out at fourteen or eleven, or twelve and buy them themselves. Mom and dad did it for them. We made sure that they were locked up safely. We make sure that they were responsible and took, you know, hunter, safety, and I think there should be limits on what age people can can buy firearms and kind of training that you should have. So it's just sort of common sense stuff that we do here, Wyoming, and that I think people around the country can. In sort of maybe take some hints from. But by the same token, you know, it's pretty clear that you're not allowed to own a nuclear weapon or shoulder-fired stinger missile. There are limits on the second amendment. You know, Antonin Scalia in his decision in the case, Hella versity see where they were. Basically, he wrote for the first time ever in the history of our country that there was an explicit individual right to bear arms. He wrote about the fact that there were limitations on on the second amendment just like there are all the other Bill of rights amendment and that certain weapons were probably not appropriate certain military weapons. And you know what? He's a pretty conservative guy, but I don't disagree with in there. So I think we can do about Celinda issues that you know also on your website is about the internet in net neutrality, and I believe I read that you had at one point been the CFO of an internet service provider. And so I, I wonder if you could sort of talk us through a little bit about. This issue of net neutrality and its importance, and you know what you bring coming from the background in that industry to, you know, thinking about those issues. Yep. I was the photo of an co-founder of an internet service provider back in the in the early days kind of dial up and DSL and when a lot of things we're changing and you know, the internet is really important to us here in Wyoming because when geographically challenged and I mean that in the sense that we have a lot of rural communities that are far away from from anywhere else. So you know, Intel is not gonna come into buffalo Wyoming or Sheridan Wyoming and build a us manufacturing plant for computer chips. For example, if we don't have the infrastructure, we don't have the employment base. It's just not gonna happen. But if you do go to buffalo Wyoming, I visited not that long ago, a company, a mom and pop, you know, a couple that had started an organic baby clothing company, and they sourced organic cotton and organic fibers. And they had the materials made into baby clothes, and then they ship them. And they took orders and they did it all over the internet. And I think in Wyoming, especially but across the country, the ability to do an incredible amount of things from a business perspective or what you guys are doing with podcast or you name it is critically important is when forward into the future, it's important to our, it's important our our ability to talk with each other. And so your BIC witness broadband I think is is an assessing. And I think that it's gotten to the point where it's much like landlines in terms of the utility that they bring and the way they should probably, frankly, be regulated in the sense that what we don't want I think is we don't want incredibly large corporations like that..

"Rick just for some commemorative. This is a family is a family, don't do it. So I wanted to ask you a ridiculously fanciful question that occurred to me while I was reading, you're really, really marvelous book. And if it's too fanciful, just say, you can say the f. word Dalia, but what do you think Antonin Scalia would think of President Donald Trump. So we do have a little bit of information about that because there's another book that came out recently by Brian garner who's a language guru and friend of Scalia co, author of a book called reading law, which is kind of like a recipe book for stetch to interpretation. And he said that Scalia was intrigued by Trump, and we know that. Scully as widow had Trump signs out on her lawn. So you know, I think there'd be some things that Trump has done, which would be abhorrent to Scalia, but they were many ways in which he really fulfils a kind of populist nationalist vision that Scully offered. So could you separate Trumpism from Trump, he'd probably fairly happy with a lot of Trumpism. Maybe not so happy with Trump the person and the, you know, if you think about one of his last dissents in a case involving Arizona's immigration law. The quotes from that about hordes of immigrants coming over the border in taking Americans jobs and threatening violence. It really could have come out of Trump's mouth and said, there were a lot of things that they had in common. School was very strong for the death penalty believed that enemy combatants who are not American citizens were really not entitled to very much protection under the constitution. He was against expansion of rights for people. In many ways, his program was Trumpian program, even if he might have found Donald Trump to be repulsive. In certain ways, rate Cassen is Fisher of law and political science at the university of California Irvine school of law. His book is the Justice of contradictions Antonin Scalia and the politics of disruption and his election law blog is a must read all the time, Rick. Thank you. It's always have you on the show to explain the oppression in gerrymandering. It is nice to have you here to explain the inscrutable Justice Antonin Scalia thank you for joining us for.
