Trump To Select Amy Coney Barrett as Supreme Court Nominee

Judge Barrett sits on the seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Ah, in in Chicago, although she's in Indiana and served his clerk to just Saturnian, Scalia. She, of course, would fill the vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose life and career were honored at the court in the capital this week, and you will be buried next week at Arlington National Cemetery. Let's now welcome Michael McConnell of Stanford University law professor and former federal appeals court judge. Thanks very much for being with us, sir. It's a pleasure. I gather, you know, Amy Cockney Barrett. What's your estimation on her apparent nomination? What kind of justice you might be? Well, I do. Ah. She was a professor at Notre Dame Law School for about 15 years and then Now that capacity I knew her fairly well, she is. We're not personal friends, but I'm in admirers of both her academic work and her performance on the On the seventh circuit. Uh, she's I think a completely unsurprising nominee. Even her opponents recognized that she's extremely qualified, highly and intelligent, hardworking. What are personal Friends knows what in it. Fantastically warm, kind, considerate human being she is and she's I think she'll be an inspiration, especially toe working mothers like like my two daughters, because, and it's just seven Children, including Two adopted Children from Haiti. One right in the wake of the terrible earthquake and on almost everybody who knows of Amy has a story about just how and how she She is so kind and does just considerate things in ways that no one whatever I know about not publicly, but just on a cz, a wonderful warm human being. Let me ask you about some of the public stuff, though, because you're a former U. S appeals court judge and, um I wonder if you've taken note of any particular rulings that she's had the chance to make in her time on the bench. And not quite three years as an appellate judge. He's written 100 opinions, which Dad and itself is pretty impressive. That's Andi. They are. You know, I've not read all of them, but I've read quite a few of them and they're consistently Love of a kind of restrained, very lawyerly of fashion sheep. She clerked for Justice Scalia, who was a brilliant writer, she doesn't write like Scalia. I'm You know, for better or worse. Her opinions are not very rhetorical. There. Ah, rigorous. They are much more low key. Er than that on DH. You know her, and they're just they're consistently conservative, but mainstream conservative. I don't think There's not an extremist bone in her body does does she have opinions? That might surprise some of her supporters every now and then? Ah, every now and then. Ah! Of course, no one really knows where any judge is going to come out on every and maybe we should remind ourselves calling someone a conservative jurist doesn't mean they will always vote a certain way, right? That's right. And the modern legal conservative movement is little different from conservative politics because the conservative legal movement is really mostly about having a more restrained Roll for judges that they ought to read the Constitution modestly with humility, not reading their own preferences into it, And that generally means leaving legislatures and the Congress to make most Democratic choices rather than having the court be like a super Legislature. Stanford law Professor Michael McConnell. Thanks so much for being with us, sir. Thank you.

notable names that are that are in there but part of the issue that you to shine a light on was the fact that tours etc just kind of blow right by that why do you think that is why are people just like why why are the historians in Tour Guides Etcetera talking about the significance of section twenty seven get his mind now I don't know what those guys are gang or or or the reasoning for not talking about it and I wish they would talk about it but until they do I hope that this story and this half warm air to educate more people about the importance second twenty seven and hopefully spark conversations yeah yeah well tell me dive into the project itself so this wasn't it wasn't like a day you just decided to go out there and take some pictures this happened over a period of time take me take me through the project with and how you came up with the idea and what was the cause you know as as a photojournalist photographer you get an idea and you have to do it so from that wait all the way through to you ready to show people what was that process well I would go to the cemetery several times a year our oh on Veterans Day Memorial Day and Christmas so for Veterans Day Memorial Day soldiers lay flags on all of the the graves and for Christmas they laid wreaths and One thing I noticed no one really knew about twenty seven elect you have young soldiers that were assigned to guard which is the army unit that maintains the cemetery and I will have black soldiers and they would not now that the session that they were standing in is you know was the burial ground for black soldiers pave the way for soldiers like myself than in oc and it was last year president trump decided to go to the Cemetery Memorial Day and I notice the mass of the people one over two cents you Scott the section where the to`must but they went over no no soldier and sex twenty seven I think I may have encountered like six people at Entire Day met a couple from North Carolina. about twenty seven but then there were say four staff members of the cemetery three security guards that were for the cemetery like maybe one or two military police officers and they were all people colored so that day the only people that I saw on Saturday cemetery of black people and they were working take it was it was like a big history lesson because the security guards new was a regarding but the young african-american active duty soldier he didn't know but once I told them it was it was a maze and I could see like the honor and dignity that he had he knew what he was guarding right there so you know I wonder if you haven't hit on something that's that is is a longer project and maybe just section any seven because you and I both know that the White House itself was built by slaves right and the Washington Monument and a lot of the bedroom the Capitol Yeah the allowed bedrock that is Washington yeah the world and so maybe that's a bigger story you know have you considered expanding out and telling that story as well about you know black people and their contribution to starting with the nation's capital okay stores but without funding it makes those projects here possible you want to tell you passionate work but you also have a habit of eating right cup of coffee every now world in a city like DC which has its share of drama being the nation's capital or not it has its share of drama of violence and you know you got your politics you got violence and this is just me on the on the west coast looking in I can't imagine what it's like being on the inside of they may show those kinds of shots but normally you're like the only person of color male dominance aided industry you you may find some his day I mean everyone knows who I am we speak but there's only maybe

I think we're as say what we're seeing for the last forty years, which is a revolutionary theological movement, hijack the powers of nation state. That means on any level to you. That war is inevitable or is never inevitable wars, always the product of human choices. That was Senator Tom cotton of Arkansas in interview I it took me by surprise. I'm going to get into this issue of the US winning a war against the ran into strikes. For those of you that don't know Senator cotton is a combat tour vet and served as a platoon leader for the army's third infantry regiment, at Arlington, actually, it was a new book out that pays homage to these soldiers who have gone before all of us, and did what they did and and serve their country. Many of them losing their lives in the course of that duty and honor in service for other people and anyway, it's called a soldier soldiers toward Arlington National Cemetery. Pretty inspiring portrait of Arlington. The haven't been. There you need to go and Arlington cemeteries old guard, but also chronicling his personal journey and time as a platoon leader in the unit Senator. How are you going to the program? Hey, Sean, it's great to be on the program, and thank you very much for your interest in sacred duty. So great honor to be able serve at the old guard in two thousand seven and two thousand three overseas tours and it was great honor to spend the last year back in Metairie with the soldiers of the our old guard into tell their story and set for duty. Well, this is important important part of your history is that for over sixteen months, and, oh, seven and eight you know, between combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan you served as the platoon leader of this old guard. The army's third infantry regiment at Arlington. The soldiers have been embodied. They, they embody the ideals of honor and sacrifice so between that time. What did you actually do their Sean? I was a platoon later with the old guard. Whose primary mission is military honor funerals in Arlington National Cemetery. We'd perform twenty to thirty in roles today for better ends of World War, Two and Korea Vietnam, and unfortunately, active duty aerials for those who had just been killed a few days earlier in Iraq, and Afghanistan, you know, we can do up to one hundred funerals and a week, probably did four to five hundred funerals at Arlington, but the distinguishing hallmark unveiled guard is their pursuit of perfection and everything they do their ethos of excellence because even though we might have performed twenty to thirty today we knew for, for that, fallen hero. And for that family, at the gravesite that was the only thing they were ever going to say that was a once in a lifetime moment, and it was a lifetime in making and we it to our comrades in arms to pay tribute to them. We also knew that it helps create the next generation of guardians for this nation whenever young men and women see the way our nation honors. Wore fallen know that they will be treated in the exact same way. If having provided they joined the military when they grow up, and they have to go down range to fight, and they lose their lives. I think it's a really important message that we send in the next generation of American that we that we started the very beginning of this country back in the revolutionary war and cherry today that there's no one, we honor more than warriors, and especially those who have laid their life in our nation. What is the reaction? Is it every time the same when taps or played or twenty one gun salute? I don't know if that's included in every funeral. But I know my father's buried in a military gravesite as well fought more to tap taps is play every military honor funerals. The big guns are fired at certain funerals for senior officers for senior civilians inside the department of defense, but, you know, I it's a mournful tune and many families lose their. Poser obviously, the, the raw the raw are and newer that the death was the harder it is on the family. But of course, that kind of thing sticks with you. It stays on your mind after the femoral if you've seen a young widow received the flag from you solving the loss of her husband and what it means to raise the two small children next to her without their death dad for the rest of their lives. Did you speak? Those words on behalf of a grateful nation to do that. We did. It's called condolence this, Sean. And it's part of the test that all officers NCO's have to undergo before they can be certified to perform a funeral in the cemetery. It's something that you don't forget, when you've been on a and you put it in tell tell us. Tell everybody, the whole process, if you don't mind walking through, because this is after they fold the flag that was draped over the casket, and it's folded with the honor that it deserves. And then take it from there. Yeah. So, so once the family is next to the grape side, once everything is in position by officer in charge at the head of the gray step away, the chaplain, which stepping on the chaplain was the mainly to the family. The chaplain would know about the soldier, whom we were honoring whether just passed away in Iraq and the conditions of his down range, or if he was order to veteran, the chaplain for short service and then step out at which point, I would step back into the head of the casket. That was the cue for the casket team, which had been holding taught to begin to the flag that is precise maneuver. They have exactly one minute fifty five seconds to fold it into a Chris triangle and present it to me, while the US army band plays usually either American the beautiful army blue. And then presenting the casket team marches off, and I turned and walked to the next of kin, a and I present the flag to the next CNN that I recite the condolences on behalf of the president and army and a grateful nation. And then I stand and I salute and then I returned to the head of the casket, these say the whole thing that you say to the taking the you present the flag. White gloves on, I remember that part. And what are the exact word you say? Yeah. So you go over you have your dress uniform on, and the white gloves on you take that me and you present the flag. And then you recite the condolences now the condolences have changed just a little bit since the time I was there what? And that was done to harmonize them across all four services. And today, the condolences are on behalf of the president of the United States, the United States army and a grateful. Nation. Please accept this lags a symbol of our pre for your loved ones. Honorable and faithful service and win the next of kin take supply, you stand and you salute one final salute to the flag, that had adorned their loved ones remains unbelievable. You know, we don't honor those brave men. We don't think I mean, we don't wake up every morning and say, I'm so free, you know, and you take we take it for granted. I mean, like a lot of blessings life. And then you think of all the people that have died in all the wars, this country has had to endure and America's I often say is the country. There's never been a country that has accumulated more power, abused it less and not a perfect country. But also used it to advance the human condition more than the United States of America, just the fact but let me ask you this question. Go ahead say that's an absolute fact. Sean, young men and women, whether that are there. At Arlington National Cemetery, or with fame divisions, one hundred first airborne division rice, are that have done that good on behalf of our nation and to say, probably most of us in civilian life? Probably don't think enough each day about those Americans who lay down their life. The fact checker pices their family made, but as I write sacred duty. That's part of the reason why we have unit like the old guard of Arlington to every single day in the cemetery. Whether it's a military honour enroll or guarding the tomb of the unknown soldier for the eighty second consecutive year to express our gratitude. I reverence and even our love as a nation for those heroes in their families. So we don't have the freedoms without these guys. We don't have this country without them. And again, you don't wake up every morning, wouldn't you think of how profound, it is, you know, no greater love, love, have man for another then the lay down their life and all these people have. It's it strikes. You and you realize that the lives, we enjoy our because of so many sacrificing, but. Let me ask you. I have you on the phone. I wanna by the way. It's a great book. It's coming out may fourteenth sacred duty soldiers tore, it Arlington National Cemetery. You. I have studied this radiant situation a lot over the years. You know, I can remember when the Shah was removed and out of France comes the Ayatollah, and that the Crecy emerges, and I was very angry when Obama dropped off hundred fifty billion dollars in cash and other currency on the tarmac in Iran for the mullah's that chant death to America and death to Israel cetera. They've been the last week or so, you an interview was on PBS said that you believe the US could win the war against the ran into strikes. And I want to ask you about it, because I think we're all pretty confident that they is evil as they are they have intelligently, moved a lot of their nuclear sites all around the country, deeply embedded into. The ground and which would make taking those sites out a loan, a monumental military task Sean exact what I said, on PBS that we would resolve dispute in one strike, because I said that, if there were a military conflict with Iran. They would only be two strikes. First strike in the last strike. What I mean by that is that we don't seek run. We're not taking military action just for the hell of it. But if a Ron were to attack us attack, one of our ships in the person Gulf attack our troops in Iraq, or tack, the personnel, the thousands and thousands of citizens addition to diplomats living in the reason in the region by taking the first strike against us. They would be guaranteeing that we take the last strike against them. They might start a battle. We would be the ones ending the battle. And we see time in a manner that are choosing. All right, quick break. We'll come back more with Senator Tom cotton of Arkansas on the other side. Side.
