What Would the Late Judge Robert Bork Think of Justice John Roberts?
"Your father's reaction with John Roberts is? A little bit of an anomaly on the court to be honest. I think it's a horrible job being chief. You know, you are in the middle. And you're trying to guide things. And I think John Roberts was a big fan of my dad's at his memorial service he gave most beautiful toast. About my father. So I don't want to be critical of him. I understand. And I can't be critical of somebody who's in that job trying to hold a bunch of radical leftists and a bunch of conservatives together and thinking, look, and he's thinking about not just the law, but the larger society. The body politic. So, but I think my dad probably would have had different view of his chief judge, chief justice ship, as it were, then some people would, I think you would have wanted him to have a little more stiffness of spine.
Who Would Make a Great Supreme Court Advocate?
"Just because you've watched so many Supreme Court arguments, you know, so many of the justices, you know, so many of the legal people. If you had to recommend a Supreme Court advocate today, someone called you up and their company is on the line, they have to argue before the Supreme Court, who would it be? I guess it would probably be Paul Clement. You and I said the same thing. I got asked that question a couple of years ago. And I've never met Paul Clement or spoken to him, but I hit Paul Clement. Tell people why. Well, because he's just if he weren't such a nice and intelligent and good guy, I would say that he was an idiot savant of an advocate. I mean by that, I don't mean that he's an idiot. I mean that even when he was a baby advocate, he came to the Justice Department with John ashcroft for whom he had worked on the Senate Judiciary Committee, I think. And he was in his young 30s and Ted Olson was the solicitor general and had just won Bush versus gore for president Bush by then president Bush and ashcroft, I think, actually wanted Paul to be solicitor general and the compromise was that he would be deputy, which he was for four years, and then he became solicitor general on his own. But as Ted also would say, Paul is just an amazing advocate. And he is not a, you know, when he worked for the government, he represented the government. When he worked for the Catholic Church, he represents the Catholic Church. Do I think that is closer to an approximation of his views? Yes, I do. But he was a just a bang up advocate for the government. And so was Ted Olson. They both represented they both defended the McCain feingold law. And one in the Supreme Court, and it fell apart years later, and they represent different interests now that they're in private practice, but that didn't stop them from being the best advocates possible for their client at the time and their client at the time was the United States government. You just named two of the four of the greatest Supreme Court advocates of my generation, the other two being the now chief justice John Roberts, and the fourth being an it'll come to me. I just forgot his name. And there are four. And they were always, I get calls, and when the chief justice was in private practice at Hogan, I would say go get him. And now when I get calls, I say go get Paul Clement because Ken Starr judge Starr is no longer practicing. They work great Supreme Court advocates because they just are at ease and I bring that up because of your Walter dellinger story on page one 30 and God bless the late Walter dellinger, who is a great man in the law, with whom I disagreed often. But he mixed up the names of justices, O'Connor and Ginsburg in his first argument. That's over practicing. Nina, that's don't you think that's what it was. He was overprepared he had thought about it so much. I'm not going to mix them up. I'm not going to mix them up. I'm not going to mix them up, and he mixed them up, and they were not happy. I don't even know if it was that. First his first argument, it just was maybe the first time he faced the two of them on the court. You're right. You're right. And he said, I mean, I've done this. I've said North Carolina when my script says South Carolina, I don't know what happens. In a less than ladylike expression, it's a brain fart. Yeah. Happens to me like on a daily basis. Nina totenberg. I mean, on a daily basis, three hours of radio you're going to do it, your buddy Steve never makes a mistake inscape. And I really hate that. But I make mistakes every day. Let me go on now to what the essence of dinners with Ruth is. And I remind you of the Frank luntz role, we've got to say the title of dinners with rouge 7 times for people to remember dinners with Ruth and order dinners with Ruth. And I want to tell my Friends on the center right in the right, this book will charm you and inform you and you'll be better for having read it. I said that most recently about Evan Thomas's one, Evan is a friend, one is about justice O'Connor and as dinners with Ruth does for justice Ginsburg one did for justice O'Connor and together they do what is only very infrequently done they give you a glimpse of the real world of the Supreme Court. And you know what? So much better than I do. I know some of the justices, but not as friends. I mean, colleague, John Roberts, an old colleague, chief just a justice Thomas and Stephen Breyer sat for interviews. And justice Gorsuch had been spent time with, but I don't know them like you know them. And you are a great storyteller. And you humanize them, but especially judge justice Ginsburg. Did you intend that when you began?
Remembering Kenneth Starr on 'Life, Liberty & Levin'
"Here he was on life liberty and Levine just a few months ago cut 23 go Welcome back America our first guest really needs no introduction but I'll give him one anyway as judge Ken Starr he was a judge from the D.C. Court of Appeals He was solicitor general of the United States independent counsel one of the great legal minds in the country judge star I have a question here Have you ever seen anything like this in your life with a leak first draft with a political party encouraging protests at the homes of justices with at least early on the Department of Justice taking literally no steps to protect these justices What do you make of this No it's been one outrageous thing after another The leak itself was as chief justice Roberts said in his written statement an egregious breach we all know that And I have frankly been very disappointed that there hasn't been anonymity in the condemnation of the leak as opposed to simply ignoring it And then yes the protests outside the different homes but especially justice Alito's home is really another outrage and one that just cries out for the government to use for the federal government to use its enforcement power You identified the law It's a criminal law It's been on the books for a long time and it should be enforced It should be faithfully enforced
Thomas Friedman: Nancy Pelosi Should Stay Home, Not Go to Taiwan
"Thomas Friedman is in my view a show for the communist Chinese and why not He's a wealthy man through marriage who lives in Maryland Maryland wants to be very much like the communist Chinese government But there you have it And free men and just so you know the Roberts who is the chief justice may have heard it the couples are very very close Tommy and Johnny And their wives are very very tight I thought you would want to know that In so Freeman is asked you know this Pelosi going to Taiwan and all What do you think about that Cut 14 go So what do you tell Nancy Pelosi then A lot of folks that apparently according to The New York Times our paper saying that inside The White House are very concerned about her going over there Just stay home This whole trip is completely out of context Eyes on the prize The prize is Ukraine defeating Russia China is helping us do that right now Did you know China is helping us defeat Russia right now Just staying home Nancy capitulate
Same-Sex Marriage Bill Advances in Congress
"The defense of marriage act repeal is coming before the Senate soon, and it's past the house, some of my very best friends in the Christian legal movement, for example, the lines depending freedom, oppose Republicans signing on to this. I support them doing so. The complicated part is the politics, according to The Washington Post, actually it's not. It's the theology, like other mainline Catholics and Christians, I believe that human intimacy is reserved for a man and a woman inside the bounds of marriage. But the United States supermajority of people don't, obergefell leapfrogged the constitutional process and slammed down obergefell in a 5 four decision. I would have joined the chief justices descent at the time the decision, but since that time unlike after roe, there has been acquiescence of the states, no efforts to overturn a burger fell, and unlike roe, enormous reliance. I believe it's a half million Americans are in the same sex marriage. And that number will grow every year. So the idea that obergefell is going to be challenging the states is absurd, the idea that the Supreme Court would ever retreat on that is absurd, but people who oppose same sex marriage should realize that we want the precedence of uncontested decisions like those involving the for exercise clause over the last ten years to stick. And in the long term, when the left rises up, we want them to have to run into a decisive and reliance interest, and by codifying obergefell, they might want to add an amendment to codify Trinity Lutheran and the hobby lobby decisions, et cetera. But they should vote for it.
Jenna Ellis: SCOTUS Should Recognize States' Control Over Elections
"And then another point on this the legislatures there's a Supreme Court case coming up I think in the next term I'm just kind of going off the fly here Forgive me It wasn't part of my show prep today but I believe it's out of North Carolina Is the Supreme Court finally going to get involved in this over who's writing these darn election rules Jenna I mean we had the disaster in Pennsylvania in the 2020 election where they unquestionably the courts just unilaterally rewrote laws about what date you could accept the ballot by We've got to have national rules for national elections This can't continue to go on like this Well we have to have the Supreme Court involved to recognize that state legislatures are the constitutionally appointed authority that establish how the elections are administered in their state And when we're talking about the presidential election it's the state legislatures that choose the manner by which the electors are sent to Congress and ultimately vote This isn't a complicated issue but every single court in the post November contest did not want to deal with it because they thought it was too political And the chief justice back in Wisconsin in 2020 she wrote this quote elections have consequences One candidate Wednesday that loses but in every case it is critical that the public perceived that the election was fairly conducted In the case now before us and this was Trump versus Biden She said and a significant portion of the public does not believe the November 3rd 2020 presidential election was fairly conducted Once again four justices on this court can not be bothered with addressing what the statutes are required and ensure that absentee ballots are lawfully capped And that's exactly what it's about The courts have to step in and make sure and hold the executive administration and the administers of the election accountable to state law And that is not important comment
Jackson sworn in, becomes 1st Black woman on Supreme Court
"Katangi Brown Jackson has shattered a glass ceiling at the Supreme Court Are you prepared to take the oath I am There were two oaths one administered by chief justice John Roberts Brown Jackson do solemnly swear The other by Stephen Breyer minutes after his retirement That I will administer justice That I will administer justice Jackson is now the first black woman to sit on the high court which for the first time now has four female justices She will not change the court's 6 three conservative tilt one that ended this term with several contentious rulings on abortion and guns last week and today on climate change limiting the EPA's ability to curb power plant emissions Sagar Meghani Washington
The Chief Stands Alone: Roberts, Roe and a Divided Supreme Court
"The Supreme Court came out on Friday with the expected but nevertheless bombshell decision overturning roe versus wade. I mean, that was the real meaning of the decision, the immediate focus was on the Mississippi law, which essentially outlawed abortion after 15 weeks. And there was one justice as it turns out the chief justice, Roberts, who wanted to sustain role, but in a sense limited. He wanted to uphold the Mississippi law and say in effect that, yeah, you do have an abortion right. States, in other words, can't regulate abortion for the first 15 weeks, but after that, they can. And what's really interesting is that this was a kind of middle position that Robert was hoping to sell, you may say, vote to the left and to the right. Oddly enough, I both sides gone along with it. You would have had a different outcome. But neither side was interested in it. In fact, I remember when Elizabeth Prada, the solicitor general, was arguing the case. She said there's an old middle ground. She goes, look, either you uphold row and the Casey decision, Planned Parenthood versus Casey. Or the whole thing falls. And I guess the court decided let it fall. So the only guy who's trying to sustain this middle ground was, in fact, was in fact
SCOTUS Rejects Maine's Ban on Tuition Aid to Religious Schools
"Let me begin with the rundown. The Supreme Court yesterday, again, again, for maybe the third time in four years. Told every single government entity in the United States, it may not discriminate against religious individuals, institutions, or programs, in particular we have repeatedly held that a state violates the free exercise clause of the constitution, when it excludes religious observers from otherwise available public benefits. That's the chief justice Roberts, writing for a 6 to three Supreme Court ordering the state of Maine that their scholarship student scholarship program for students who must lead the county. Because there is no secondary school. In far away, north Maine, way up in the Woods. There are many counties that do not allow do not have secondary schools. There aren't enough students to justify the cost of the expense, and so they just give a voucher to every high school student, the state of Maine gives every high school student in the north of Maine that the west of Maine, the tree of Maine, this one giant forest, with some people living it, they each get a voucher and they go off to prep school and go to any school they want. Except Maine said you can't go to a religious school, and the Supreme Court said, that's unconstitutional, and I've been predicting that's unconstitutional for an entire year because I teach con law. I teach at First Amendment seminar.
Kathryn Kolbert: Roberts Would Not Divert Others From Overturning Roe
"So the argument is going to be Roberts does tend to like a middle ground. And the chief justice has indicated in the past that the pivotal issue for abortion rights may be whether a pregnant person has a pregnant person, says Politico ever the woke ever the woke publication, whether a pregnant person has sufficient I can't believe I'm reading that. Has sufficient opportunity to get an abortion, not the age of the fetus. Roberts has said, there is a point at which they've had the fair choice opportunity to choice. Why would 15 weeks be an inappropriate line? So in other words, Politico is reporting, and I think it's probably just a theoretical argument. But he only needs one other conservative and attorney Catherine Colbert who argued at the high court for the abortion rights side in case C three decades ago predicted on a recent podcast that she sees no way justice Roberts diverts his colleagues from their increasingly intense desire to overturn roe. Not a chance in hell. She said bluntly. Well, we'll see. I'll believe it when I see it.
Politico: What a Roberts Compromise on Abortion Could Look Like
"Be prepared because as I have told you, I don't trust Roberts and here's the headline that I dreaded from Politico what a Roberts compromise on abortion could look like. When the two sides in the abortion debate squared off at the Supreme Court last fall, they agreed on one thing. There was no middle ground. Now any hope abortion rights supporters have of avoiding a historic loss before the court lies with chief justice John Roberts crafting an unlikely compromise rights Politico. Can Robert thread that needle, how would he do it? A deep dive into Robert's public speeches and commentary at court arguments may offer somewhat of a road map to what a Roberts compromise might be on row if he's able to find one at the 11th hour.

The Misinterpretation of Romans 13 With Rick Boyer
"What else do you say in the book, Rick? Talking let me give you just one example of how this improper misinterpretation of Romans 13 affects us. Back in 2013 or 2014, just before the Supreme Court's obergefell decision that purported to mandate gay marriage all across the country. You had a rogue federal judge in Alabama who ordered Alabama judges to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. While chief justice Roy Moore, at the time, was chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. And he said, no, he said the Alabama constitution defines marriage as one man and one woman. This is God's standard. This is the Alabama constitution standard. There's nothing in the federal constitution that would overturn this, and this rogue federal judge has no authority. You must issue marriage licenses only to heterosexual couples. Well, Russell Moore, no relation, who at the time was the head of the ethics and religious liberty commission for the Southern Baptist convention. He wrote a terrible piece demanding that if Christian leaders, Christian politicians, Christian judges can not enforce whatever they're told to enforce because of their convictions that they must resign and protest and just protest quietly as a citizen. Well, he'd forgot to tell Daniel this. When king Darius said, you can not pray to any God or man, but me for 30 days, Daniel didn't resign his position as the chief man in the kingdom, the number one of the three presidents underneath of Darius, in order to in order to retire to his closet or his church and keep his faith to himself while 6 days a week. He opened his window towards Jerusalem the same place he always did where he knew the people who were trying to trap him would see him do it. This was civil disobedience. It was protest. It was, again, a declaration that God is God and Caesar is number two. You look at Daniel's three Friends. Everybody else is bowing on the plane of dura to the statue to the golden statue. Daniel's three Friends didn't resign their positions. They didn't have some peaceful protests in their home or their church. They stood there on the plane of dura in front of the king in front of all the kings leaders in front of the whole nation, civilly disobeying and saying, we will not bow.

David Gergen on Running the Nixon Speech Writing Team
"You know, when you came back, when you came back in the speech writing process when I was a young lawyer, it was staffed around. I remember the chief justice of the United States at that time in associate council, arguing with Peggy noonan. That was a murderous row of speechwriters over which we had Bill sapphire and Ray Price and Pat Buchanan. And Nixon. Yeah, and then John McLaughlin came in for a lead in the game with Nixon, but he was around for a while. Ben Stein. It was a terrific group. It was about 50 people. If you look at speechwriting and their sports staff and then the research staff and then we also headed the letters and so correspondent section. So it was about 50 people there. And I ran that for a while.
Joe Biden's Silence on THIS Is Dangerous
"Let's turn to our top story. The Biden administration's total utter failure to recognize the danger of protesters gathering outside our chief justice's homes. Despite a weekend of pro choice activists, harassing Supreme Court Justices at their homes, The White House has stood by and really not done anything. They didn't say anything. Until Tuesday, days later, and that's when their press person, Jen Psaki, finally came out and tweeted at potus strongly believes in constitutional right the constitutional right to protest, but that should never include violence threats or vandalism. Yeah, you think? Judges perform an incredibly important function in our society and they must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety. I just want to know where's the president himself on this? Why hasn't he come out? And said that, why didn't he tweet that? You know, one has to wonder at what point will our country blame President Biden if these protests get out of hand? Because you see by staying silent, isn't he effectively egging on his supporters? Oh, I can think of someone that they would have said that about. Right? Yeah, look, it's wrong. It's just wrong. Any way you slice it, he needs to get out in front of this. He needs to set some kind of standard as the president. But you understand, of course, he can't, he can't, because this is politics at its worst. You see the Democrats now know that they have totally failed to control inflation. They know that we lost too many people in that quick exit out of Afghanistan. They know that the border situation is out of control and they know Americans are struggling as they watch this tragedy unfold in Ukraine. So sadly, it all means they got nothing to run on except for, oh, the Supreme Court issue.
"chief justice" Discussed on WTOP
"Signals for the legitimacy of the nation's high court It's interesting that leaked draft that we saw doesn't appear to include John Roberts in the majority It appears to be 5 of the conservative justices without John Roberts for exactly the reason you just laid out chief justice Roberts is very much following in the steps of his mentor then chief justice William rehnquist who also felt that his job as the chief justice was not just to be another vote but to protect the public esteem for the court the legitimacy of the court and we may recall justice rehnquist did all sorts of things as chief justice he might not have done as a junior justice because he was deeply worried about that and chief justice John Roberts seems to be saying by declining to sign on to this draft by Sam Alito he cares too much about public opinion about the legitimacy of the court in the eyes of the public to sign off on something that would Willy nilly overturn 50 years of precedent So are you saying the courts should be swayed by public polling or public outcry I'm saying both I'm saying in some sense the framers created life tenure They have an institution that answers to nobody because the court's not meant to be swayed by public opinion But I'm also saying that the justices themselves from the time of the great chief justice John Marshall till today have always been mindful of not overturning cases of not taking zigzags just based on the composition of the court In fact the rules and the discussion around precedent and overturning precedent are really bound up in not shocking the public in not jolting the public by simply changing lanes because the court has different membership And so I think what I'm saying is the court has massive power to do just that And the justices have historically conducted themselves in ways that protect the public from those kinds of shocks and that John Roberts is essentially saying everything we know about precedent about stare decisis tells us we don't simply change directions because we have new justices and we can change directions We have to be really mindful of public opinion and public support and the legitimacy of the court requires that just because one member of the court dies and is replaced by another doesn't mean we get to do what we want to do now If a decision comes down some people will be pleased and some unhappy that's in the draft justice Alito really seems to leave the door open to other cases that are not rooted in the constitution like contraception like same sex marriage and even interracial marriage If you take justice Alito at face value marriage equality is back on the table contraception is back on the table even the case that said that anti miscegenation rules the rules that said you couldn't have interracial marriage all of that is in the same bucket.

Senate. Mr Schumer tells us the trial of the president of the United States on one charge of incitement to insurrection will begin on February 9th. Everything else is in move and motions. So I welcome my colleagues. That is McCotter. American Greatness. Andrew McCarthy national villain line to preview What Could be ahead of us. Not the same as we saw last January, February in the impeachment trial of President Trump, this will be an impeachment trial of former President Trump and there in lies the twist upon twist upon twist And let's get to the big twist. Chief Justice Roberts will not be present. Why not? Good evening to you, Andy. Good evening, John and Fatty is well, he won't be present because the Constitution says that The chief justice of the United States must preside over an impeachment trial of the president of the United States. President Trump is no longer the president of the United States. He's the former president. So under the Constitution, there's no requirement that Chief Justice Roberts preside. I don't know, John. Well, we don't have the full story yet. I don't know if there were any feelers put out to the Supreme Court to see to take justice Chief Justice Roberts temperature on whether he wanted to do this or not, or whether they just simply realized that this wasn't the presidential Impeachment. There was no point asking him but one way or the other. The trial gets presided over by the presiding officer of the Senate, who was either the vice president of the United States where the president pro TEM Of the Senate. Now that the Democrats have taken over the president Pro TEM is Patrick Leahy of Vermont, who was a very sharp elbowed partisan Democrat and the word we got today that's leaking after the Senate is that lady? Will preside over the impeachment trial. That is Andy. What do we know about who will be putting on the president's defense? And what does that tell us about what they'll be arguing? Uh, there's a South Carolina lawyer that he is that he's hired named Butch Bowers. Former rug JAG who's well thought of in When I say Jack of Judge Advocate general, the lawyer judge in the military, he's well thought of in Republican circles, particularly in South Carolina. He's got former Or prior impeachment experience because he represented Mark Sanford, who was governor of South Carolina, who is almost impeached. Uh, in that capacity. And his main line of expertise. As I understand it is election law, which certainly suggests that the Trump defense is at least contemplating, in part. Relitigating at the or using the impeachment as a forum to broadcast some of the claims that he was making in the last two months after the election. The puzzle is what we look like. We can presume that the Senate floor will be used at some point, Andy, but with Pat Leahy, judging supervising in some fashion They're got. There's going to be the concern that it does not look like a show trial that it does not look like the Red Queen is in charge and the verdict come first and then the sentence as sentence comes first and then the verdict. So how do you imagine they will stage this? Will they use the Senate? Yeah, I think John the the issue that you raises a very important optic and it's a big political problem for the Democrats. It's not obviously a constitutional problem. You could have a full Uh, Senate floor trial with, you know, just Pat Leahy rather than John Roberts sitting in the chair, but it would look like a political show trial, so I think they'll have a powerful incentive to Exploit rule 11 of the Senate rules of impeachment, which apply basically toe all impeachments, but they're not intended for impeachment of the incumbent president of the United States and what usually happens So as not to chew up all of the Senate's time on this stuff is the matter gets referred to an ad hoc committee for impeachment trial purposes, and they conduct the trial in the committee. Aziz what happened in the full Senate in a big presidential impeachment? They do all the same things they You know, hear presentations from both sides. They take whatever testimony they think they need. Then they certify the record and distributed to the full Senate. So eventually you would have a proceeding. Much briefer one before the full Senate on the full Senate would maintain the discretion to supplement the record if it thought it needed to hear from anyone else. We're here for many other witnesses, but they would otherwise just vote on the record that's developed in the committee. And not be present. They would not. They would not listen to the witnesses in person. Is that what you're imagining? Yes, The what'll happen. John is that the transcripts of any witness testimony given to the committee would be distributed to the full Senate. The full Senate if they voted to do this. Would have the discretion to bring in any of those witnesses for purposes of hearing. More testimony is a full Senate or they could call other witnesses. Or they could supplement the record anyway. They want But I think given that Leahy would be closely coordinating, undoubtedly with the Biden White House and with Senator Schumer, who's the mind majority leader now? In the Senate. It's highly unlikely that the full Senate would second guess whatever committee Leahy either presides over or or parcels. This out to Andre will be a very short proceeding in front of the full Senate, where they would just vote and they you know they would have to vote. On conviction. That would be the first vote and if there were two thirds vote in favor of conviction, then they would move on to the question of disqualification, which based on prior Senate president in some impeachment cases is a simple majority vote, not a two thirds vote. That is Well, Andy, Let's say that things go as expected, and this fails ultimately fails. What then will happen Will it be censure? What will what will what will happen next? But I don't think the Democrats are done making Trump a central issue to unify their party. You see studies. You are much more astute on how the politics of this works than I do. But my assessment of it. I'd be interested to know what yours is, but I think that they're the incentive of Republicans to do. A censure is much higher.

"In the dreamers case included the four liberal justices and Chief Justice John Roberts who seems to have taken over the edge of the camp of the role of the the tipping point the balance point and the four conservative justices on the court were in the opposition the adjusters to Clarence Thomas said the decision must be recognized for what it is an effort to avoid a politically controversial but legally correct decision the majority is not even attempt to explain why a court has the authority to scrutinize an agency's policy reasons for rescinding an unlawful program of the arbitrary and capricious microscope the decision to counter manned and unlawful agency action is clearly reasonable so long as the agency determination of illegality is sound and I review should then be at an end so up again from the practical standpoint probably this is certainly of the end of the issue if if Joe Biden wins the election if the president trump wins reelection then you'll see this certainly come up again in his second term maxima calls in from Great Falls Montana to speak with our guest Josh Smith of the center for growth and opportunity good evening maxima if I said that correctly Hey buddy and good afternoon good afternoon RT at two things that I like to say if it's supposed to be everything was done legally to this country I see I have lived there think of all countries that I never went to illegally and to come to this country he spent time and money to get my V. said I don't have to be illegal in one place and break the law on the other hand when you go to the American embassy in different unpaid Adam according to a two gift aid form to come here but I'll give you twelve years my brother applied them eighteen years ago two more years passed away from his frame to come here and I have a friend that lives in years to come here he looked at legally and that's to match it and I don't see they shouldn't be that way no I agree with you aged injured by that we've discussed this on this program before by the way and what the maxima outlines in fact happens and it is absolutely pointless there is no conceivable reason on the planet it doesn't take seventeen years to get a top secret security clearance for Pete's sake and the Josh Smith there is absolutely no excuse for dragging something like this out it a yes or a no could certainly be handled in a matter of weeks much less months much less years so certainly that is a part of our system that that needs to I know some of this may come about because of nine eleven but even that is not a reason to drag something like this out either a yes or a no your thoughts Josh I agree I think that there's a lot of simplification that can be made in Maximo thank you so much for calling in it's not uncommon to hear stories like this and sometimes it's even larger I I know for some B. two categories the wheat for them with with a graduate degree or some kind of specialized training can be as much as a hundred and fifty years and that's two years seriously fifty years since more than a lifetime right in the matter of fact it that much more you're you are essentially daring people here we're going to throw every bureaucratic red tape road blocking your path the weekend we dare you to come in illegally I mean this is virtually begs people to break the law and it's inexcusable I totally agree it's just like the water brings life to the orchard and the same thing happens water flows downhill and it takes the easiest path that it can so when people see it I do not have a way to come legally it makes sense for them to say well maybe it's worth the risk and I think that we should be concerned about that from a perspective of the rule of law but we should also mention the story is not uncommon a hundred and fifty year wait is unfortunate and there are ways that we can fix this that I think everyone can get behind absolutely as I said a yes or no does not take anywhere near that long no where if you were to examine every instant of a person's life it doesn't take that long to gill who this is to us in Manila the Philippines hello Gil hello Jean I'm very much in agreement for nearly people who break the law to come into the United States should not be given any kind of special treatment I think would be a last call was referring to please see our family unification program because those wait times vary from country to country here in the Philippines is about eighteen years for someone who's applied to go to the United States as a relative of someone who's already there was petitioned up to mock salon and making your way that's that the government has nonsense that it does take eighteen years to make a decision I mean it is that is nothing more than bureaucrats playing games with people's lives it does not take it month much less years to reach a reasonable decision yes you may no you may not and it should it should not happen in the in the Philippines should not happen here in my opinion I agree with your essential premise about a country having the right to decide but in the case of of interminable delays that's that's ridiculous well it it it happens to be that's how the law is now every country is granted a certain number of family unification visas based on its population so many come to the Philippines and there are so many people in the Philippines for Christian angel have their relatives there right that's why the line is so long well Indianapolis by basing such decisions on on on national origin any rational immigration a policy you know what our guests to respond any rational immigration policy should not be based on your nation of origin should be based on one of the best interests of the host country Josh I think there's a lot to be said for providing routes for highly skilled people to let people who speak to you after the meeting for open promising opportunity that they don't have any in their home countries that's the story of so many immigrants someone like Andrew Carnegie came across to the poor Scott he had no special training still and he became a steel tycoon and even in my small town it we have two of the Carnegie libraries in can impact that even low skilled immigrants can bring to the country so many casualties but again with back when and Carnegie came to this country we barely had a hundred million people of that body today we have three hundred twenty nine million and I will repeat a lie that I've said before which some may consider harsh but it's a fact we are up to our **** in huddled masses it is no longer enough that you want to or that you simply feel there's an economic opportunity I dare say of the seven point eight billion people on the planet a good five billion easily could say I would be better off economically so what would have to be I'm sorry my response that should not be the determining factor it should be what is in the best interests of this country and yes that means regrettably the inscription on the statue of liberty is just a tad outdated I guess is Josh Smith he's research manager for the center for growth and opportunity at Utah State University and we'll continue on that the Jimbo had a show with more in just a moment attention men struggling with erectile dysfunction there's finally a treatment that doesn't require pills injections or surgery

Bolton then his national security adviser to help with this pressure campaign to extract damaging information on Democrats you craning officials according to an unpublished manuscript by Mister Bolton Mr trump gave the instruction Mister Bolton wrote during an oval office conversation in early may that included the acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and the White House counsel Patsy baloney who is now leading the president's impeachment defense now you'll see in a few moments and you'll recall Mister simple loaning suggesting that the house managers were concealing fax from this body he said all the facts should come out well there's a new fact which indicates that Mr so Bologna was among those who are in the low yet another reason why we ought to hear from witnesses just as we predicted and it didn't require any great active clairvoyance the facts will come out they will continue to come out and the question before you today is whether they will come out in time for you to make a complete an informed judgment as to the guilt or innocence of the president now the times article goes on to say that Mr trump told Mister Bolton to call Vladimir is a Lynskey would recently won election as president of Ukraine to ensure misters Lynskey would meet with Mr Giuliani who is planning a trip to Ukraine to discuss the investigations of the president sought in Mr bones account Mister Bolton never made the call he wrote never made the call Mister Bolton understood that this was wrong he understood that this was not policy understood that this was a domestic political errand and refused to make the call the canister bones mennesker portrays the most senior White House advisers as early witnesses in the effort that they have sought to distance the president from including the White House counsel over several pages according to the times Mister Bolton laid out Mr trump's fixation on Ukraine and the presence believe based on a mix of scattershot events assertions and I'll write conspiracy theories and Ukraine try to undermine his chances of winning the presidency in twenty sixteen as he began to realize the extent and aims of the pressure campaign Mister Bolton began to object he wrote in the book affirming the testimony of a former National Security Council aide Fiona hill who had said that Mister Bolton warned that Mr Giuliani was a hand grenade who's going to blow everybody up now as you might imagine the president denies this president said today I never instructed John Bolton to set up a meeting for Rudy guiliani one of America's one of the greatest corruption fighters in America so here you have the president saying John Bolton is not telling the truth let's find out let's put John Bolton under oath let's find out who's telling the truth trial is supposed to be a quest for the truth let's not fear what we will learn as Mr siblani said let's make sure that all the facts come out that is congressman Adam Schiff lead to house impeachment manager describing the new revelations that are happening even today about what went on at the White House involving possible only White House counsel senators this is now Val Deming's another house impeachment manager last Tuesday at the onset of this trial we billed for a leader McConnell's resolution to be amended to subpoena documents and witnesses from the onset from the outset this body decided to hold the question over you have now heard opening arguments from both sides you have seen the evidence that the house was able to collect you have heard about the documents and witnesses president trump blocked from the houses impeachment inquiry we have vigorously questioned both sides the president's counsel has urge you to decide this case and render your verdict upon the record assembled by the house the evidence in the record is sufficient it is sufficient to convict the president on both articles of impeachment more than sufficient but that's simply not how trials work as any prosecutor or defense lawyer would tell you when the case goes to trial both sides call witnesses and subpoena documents to bring before the jury that happens every day in court rooms all across America there is no reason why this impeachment trial should be in a different the common sense practices is born out of president there has never been never before been a full Senate impeachment trial without a single witness in fact you can see in the slide and every one of the fifteen prior impeachment trials the Senate has called multiple witnesses today we ask you to follow this body's uniform precedence and your common sense we urge you to vote in favor of subpoenaing witnesses and documents now I'd like to address one question at the office that there has been much back and forth about whether if the house believe it in its it has sufficient evidence to convict which we do why do we need more witnesses and documents so I'd like to be clear the evidence presented over the past week and I have strongly supports a vote to convict the president the evidence is overwhelming we have a mountain of evidence it's direct is corroborated by multiple sources and it proves that the president committed grave impeachable offenses to cheat in the next election the evidence confirms that if left in office president trump we'll continue to harm our America's national security he will continue to seek to corrupt the upcoming election and he will undermine he will undermine our democracy all to further his own personal gain but this is a fundamental question that must be a dress is this a fair trial is this a fair trial is this a fair trial without the ability to call witnesses and produce documents the answer is clearly and unequivocally no it was the president's decision to contest the fax and that is this right but because he has chosen to confess the fat a contest the facts he shall not be heard to complain he should not be heard to complain that the house which is the brother prove his guilt to answer the questions he would raise he complains that few witnesses spoke directly to the president about his misconduct beyond his damn in conversations with online and mobile banking okay let's hear from others then the witnesses the house which is the call directly to the president all the words his own admissions of guilt his own confessions of responsibility if they did not all the president's men would be on their witness list not ours these witnesses and the documents their their agencies produce tell the full story and I believe that we are interested in hearing the full story you should want to hear it more than that the American people we know they want to hear it the house Republicans all an expert witness in the house professor Turley said if you could prove the president use our military aid to pressure you grain to investigate a political rival it interfere and our elections it would be and then each a bowl abuse of power and senator Gramm to recognize that if such evidence existed it could potentially change is mine on impeachment well we now have another witness a fact witness who would reportedly say exactly that ambassador Bolton's new manuscript which we will discuss in more detail in a moment reportedly confirms that the president told him in no uncertain terms we're talking about the former national security adviser saying the president told him in no uncertain terms no aid until investigations including the bidens for a week and I have the president has said no such evidence exists they are wrong but if you have any doubt about the evidence if you have any doubt about the evidence the evidence is at your fingertips the question is will you let all of us including the American people here simply here the evidence and make up their own minds and you can make up your own minds but will we let the American people here all of the evidence you recall that ambassador bolt on the president's former national security adviser is one of the witnesses we ask or last Tuesday we did not know at the time what he'd say we didn't know what kind of witness that he would be but ambassador Bolton made clear that he was willing to testify and that he had relevant first hand knowledge that did hadn't yet been heard we urge we argue that we all deserve to hear that evidence but the president opposed him now we know why because John Bolton could corroborate the rest of our ever dance and confirm the president's guilt so today today senators we come before you and we urge we argue again that you let this witness and the other key witnesses we have identified come forward so you have all of the information available to you when you make this consequential decision if witnesses are not called here these proceedings will be a trial in name only and the American people clearly know a fair trial when they see one large majorities of the American people want to hear from witnesses in this trial and they have a right to hear from witnesses in this trial let's hear from them let's look them in the eyes gauge their credibility and hear what they have to say about the president's actions for the same reasons this body should grant our request to subpoena documents the documents that the president also blocked the house from obtaining documents from the White House the state department D. O. D. N. O. M. B. that will complete the story and provide the whole truth whatever they may be we ask that you subpoenaed these documents so that you can decide for yourself if you have any doubt as to what occurred let's look at this additional evidence to be clear we're not asking you to track down every single document or to call every possible witness we have carefully identified only four key witnesses with direct knowledge who can speak to the specific issues that the president has disputed and we target the key documents which we understand have already been collected for example at the state department they've already been collected there this will not call a substantial delay as I made clear last night these matters can be addressed in a single week as we made clear last night these matters can be addressed in a single week we know that from president Clinton's case there the Senate voted to approve a motion for witnesses on January twenty seven the next day it is Abbas procedures for those depositions and adjourned as a court of impeachment until February fourth in that brief period the parties to three depositions the Senate then resumed his proceedings by voting to accept the deposition testimony into the record in this trial to let's do the same we should take a brief one week break for witness testimony and document collection during which time the Senate can be returned to its normal business the trial should not be allowed to be different from each from every other impeachment trial or any other kind of trial simply because the president doesn't want us to know the truth the American people the American people that we all represent the American people that we all love and care about deserve to know the truth and a fair trial we choirs that this is too important of the decision to be made without all of the relevant evidence before turning to the specific needs for these witnesses and documents I want to make clear we are not asking you again to break new ground Raskin quite the opposite we are asking you to simply follow the Senate's unbroken residence and to do so in a manner that allows you to continue the Senate's ordinary business the Senate sitting as a court of impeachment has heard witness testimony and every other as we said earlier in every other fifteen impeachment trials in the history of the.

States should be removed from office and the twenty sixteen election reversed and whether the Republican Party can even nominee Donald Trump to be its nominee for a second term and senator Paul courageously and you know I criticize him strongly by courageously the only one who sends a specific question to be asked of Adam Schiff regarding turn around and his staff for miss go relating to how this all started and the Chief Justice rules that it's not appropriate question he's not going to ask this is outrageous more I think about this why is it that Chief Justice why doesn't allow the question because the Washington post's hasn't used the guy's name why is that it's not his job to censor it's not his job to tow the line the United States senator asked a question follow the rules of the Senate there's nothing in those roles and say this is off limits the initial main celebrated accuser of the president of the United States that the Democrats used to trigger the some tire share Hey senator had some legitimate questions and the Chief Justice Chief Justice refuses to read the question the presiding officer declines to read the question as submitted the presiding officer should read the question is submitted in my view he abused his office and he abused his power by refusing to allow that question to be asked and I don't care if the Democrats like it or not I don't care if Collins and Ronnie recounts the like it or not I don't care if the New York Times or The Washington Post or cable TV likes it or not that doesn't matter and the Chief Justice of the United States should not the accused in the accused council have a right to know who the accuser is and where the accuser was working what the lead house manager to create this entire disgusting scenario and instead what's happening tonight is rand Paul's being attacked what a joke of a process honest to god what a joke of the process as this is being treated and John Roberts blow it big time big time and even there the Democrats and going back and forth depending on what strategy they think all work Adam Schiff said although we're going to have a public hearing with this this whistleblower my god he's going to blow trump right out of the water then his lawyers get nervous and then ship is exposed as a big mouthful liar for lying to the American people Anne we don't know this is you know I staff and I we never spoke to but his staff did speak to chief is lying now tell me he doesn't know who it is ladies and gentleman it was in real clear politics Paul Sperry wrote a long piece about I. ready to go on the air and others have to how could you miss it what do you mean you don't know who it is you're not even allowed to call this Eric charm LA you're not allowed to ask them you're not allowed to put him under oath is what I want John ball we want what we want Eric turno naked he's irrelevant he's what do you mean is irrelevant no one saw blauer he filed a complaint he accused the president of the United States I would have paid apparently according to the Democrats well we got all the information we need the Democrats say who cares what they say the defense or a senator doesn't have to go by what man I've learned ships say this guy started the whole thing you're not allowed the name of on the Senate floor the Chief Justice obstructs a question from rand Paul circuses this we have to have witnesses we at their witness just not back when it just not hunter Biden it's just not this one it just and they go on this is unfair I heard this idiot Angus king named after a cow parents must I hated him he's an independent don't you know you know he said we don't have any witnesses the president has not been exonerated so even when the Senate trial present is not exonerated if he wins twenty twenty the election is fixed ladies and gentleman we better get more people to the polls and ran this down their throats because someone Tyson if they win the next election it's not only do for the country doing for your children and grandchildren they will become even more to radical more fascistic and so will the media when I say that a let's go to Jim Las Vegas Nevada Sirius satellite go great when you're right I got a quick comment yeah yes president trump when president trump wins reelection maybe Robert can retire with give birth yeah that's not gonna happen I know I just I mean retirement wishful thinking but my question is so the president has the power to do executive order yes and well it depends what it is all what I was my question so what do you have the executive order and Obama did look the what let me just tell you how works at the White House having been there an executive order what do they look at it depends on the facts of this in the circumstances you don't use executive orders in lieu of lawmaking so the president looks of the president the use of executive orders in the past which really were heavily used quite frankly in the past were really starting with Franklin Roosevelt who is a many ways fascistic many ways choose the IRS is use the FBI his abuse of the Supreme Court I could go on and on and on and of course the left loves why because he started this whole process of democratic socialism really Woodrow Wilson did but obviously FDR use the occasion of the depression to advance beyond beyond anybody's imagination now that said so executive orders were initially intended to direct the executive branch to implement a regulation that affects a rule rather that affects the executive branch or statue that affects the executive branch is an executive order in terms of that more of administrative application when a girl from there there are gaps in the law so president began using executive orders to fill the gaps or their contradictions the law one law contradicts another so president might issue an executive order for that there may be budgetary allowances like the present United States has moved some funds from X. tell why which have been permitted in the past and I'll do that what's different with Obama with docket is he issued an executive order in lieu of a congressional statute that apply to a legal alien if they're not really children anyone under the age of thirty something or not and defied Congress in bypass Congress and the Democrats were thrilled with it they thought it was great well they run around attacking trump claiming old Curtis he could be a monarch let me ask you a question my friend is a monarch allow a special counsel to investigate him there are absolutely no is a monarch allow a so called Congress to investigate him there's a monarch allow people who are around him who stabbed him in the back to roam free Lee I mean he hasn't done anything like a monarchy isn't violated the constitution any federal law any court order so they come up this is why they come up with these cockamamie or abuse of power and he obstructed us we have to remove him because he obstructed us my friend excellent call we'll be right back then it's time to check the roads from the try to afternoon this look at traffic sponsored by staples some slow go fifteen heading north to

"A greater responsibility on the presiding justice on Chief Justice Robert as you pointed out in the last impeachment trial with president Clinton and it was Rehnquist Rehnquist what was the famous quote the reason he was so effective was because he did so little that's what he said and justice Roberts the Chief Justice Roberts is almost bought but when he doesn't have to do so little potentially and that's what some Republicans are saying that perhaps considering that there are people who are not taking their seriously perhaps they should give a greater role to the Chief Justice in making certain decisions and not allowing them to be over ruled by the Senate Majority because that's the way it was and that's the way it probably will be but they're talking about we have to see what happens now we just giving you our two top we got to take a break Pat what is the third on your list I don't I don't like I said I didn't really put them into order but them I will tell you one of the ones that I have on my list is the growing anti semitic violent and that I kind of am lumping into the violence in the country because it's interesting that murder rates have actually gone down violence in the country believe it or not has gone down but mass shootings and mass killings have gone up and anti semitic attacks have gone up and so I think that this is a very this portends something incredibly dangerous for this country and I think that we have an obligation to try to get to the root of what is actually going on here these something has to be done about these mass killings mass shootings not all of the mass killings were done by gun fire most of them were of course and not all of the mass shootings resulted in mass death but there were four hundred nine incidents of mass shootings in the country last year and the numbers of mass killings last year reached this year twenty nineteen reached a record high let's talk about that and the rise in shoe hatred we'll talk about that I'm John Rothman and she's Patterson and we are right here on KGO they're.
