"To that? It was antifa and Black Lives Matter. All I want to say is remember in the lead up to January 6th, there was like a whole bunch of talk about antifa, Black Lives Matter do not be out. Do not go out there. I am so glad they listened to and heated that message. Because if they would have been there, Trump would have declared the insurrection act and imagine what would have gone down. Yeah. Yeah. Okay, by the way, Tristan's now also says, again, stop saying the documents were seized. That implies they belong to Trump. They were recovered. They were and are the property of the United States of America. When are we? They belong to the office, not to the man. Right. When are we expecting some. I can't believe this is before clarence Thomas, who's in charge of the 11th circuit. So when is the time frame on this? There is no time frame as of right now. Yeah, Tristan said breaking Trump appeals 11th court decision on Mar-a-Lago docs to the Supreme Court. The justice covering the 11th is clarence Thomas. So Thomas will hear a case that potentially implicates the January 6th insurrection plot that his wife may have participated in. Yes. I'm telling you, isn't that it for justice in America, the rule of law if this just says, oh yeah, you can have your documents back and okay.

"You retweeted Ginny Thomas read an opening statement to the committee according to a source. I can guarantee that my husband has never spoken with me about pending cases at the court. It's an ironclad rule here in our home. She said clarence Thomas is uninterested in politics, and you just said that did the committee just start laughing hysterically. But, I mean, here we have a sitting Supreme Court Justice's wife saying yes, the election was stolen. And no, I've never talked to my husband about anything. And you know what, every single biography of every single Supreme Court Justice talks about how they discussed cases with their families. Yeah. I mean, you know, we know that was it Lewis Powell, who wrote roe V wade. We know he discussed it with his family. What he was going to do in that decision. We just know this. And it's just like, it's sitting there going, wow, you must have a really crappy marriage. If you can't talk about work at all with each other, I mean, I hope the sex is good.

It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve inskeep in Washington. Enemy Martinez and Culver City, California. Former president Donald Trump is asking the Supreme Court to intervene in the review of documents the FBI sees from Mar-a-Lago. Trump's attorneys filed their appeal late yesterday, asking the court to review one part of the lower court rulings over the papers recovered from Trump's home. Trump you will recall appointed the district judge in the case also appointed two of three judges that partly overruled her and also appointed three justices on the high court that he would like to overrule them. NPR justice correspondent Ryan Lucas here Ryan. It sounds like a very narrow appeal. So what exactly are Trump's attorneys asking for? Yeah, it is a pretty limited ass. They want the Supreme Court to vacate the 11th circuit's stay limiting the scope of the special master's review. So in other words, they want the special master's review to include the roughly 100 classified documents that the FBI collected in August for Mar-a-Lago. They are not asking the Supreme Court to stop the Justice Department from using those classified documents in their investigation. But it was critical Trump's attorney said that these classified documents be reviewed by the special master for purposes of transparency and public confidence, they said. This has been an ongoing legal saga, Ryan, how do we get here? There has been a lot of back and forth since the FBI took these documents from Mar-a-Lago back in early August. You may recall that in early September, a judge in Florida who has Steve noted was appointed by Trump, granted a request by Trump to appoint a special master to review all of these documents he's from Mar-a-Lago. The Justice Department appealed part of that ruling. It wanted two things in that appeal. And one of the FBI to be allowed to use these hundred classified documents or so in their investigation and the Justice Department didn't want to have to hand over the classified documents to the special master. A three judge panel on the 11th circuit Court of Appeals unanimously agreed with the Justice Department. It temporarily blocked the lower court's order and cleared the way for the FBI to use the classified documents in its investigation again. And it also said the Justice Department did not have to provide those classified materials to the special master. So what does Trump's appeal now mean for the Justice Department's investigation? It's not entirely clear, as I said earlier, Trump's attorneys aren't asking the Supreme Court to stop federal investigators from using these classified materials in their investigation. And remember that investigation is looking into possible mishandling of national defense information or the concealing or destruction of government records. Meanwhile, the Justice Department is still appealing the appointment of the special master last week the department said in court papers that the special master's review is delaying their investigation and had asked the 11th circuit to fast track that appeal. And that of course is something that Trump is opposing. We've mentioned the makeup of the court, dominated by 6 conservative justices, three of them nominated by Trump. And Jenny Thomas justice clarence Thomas wife is under scrutiny for her ties to Trump's efforts to overturn the election, what role do all these dynamics play in this case? Well look, Trump has in the past gone at the Supreme Court to try to shield his business and his presidential records from investigators. I mean, he hasn't always fared well. In January, remember the court rejected his request to block the release of White House records that the house January 6th committee was seeking for its investigation. So we'll see what happens with this new effort. In this case, Trump's attorney test submitted this emergency application to justice clarence Thomas, who oversees the 11th circuit. He has given the Justice Department until Tuesday to respond. Thomas can act on his own or the usual thing to do in something like this, a high profile matter like this would be to refer to the full court. NPR's Ryan Lucas, Ryan, thanks. Thank you. The government requires airlines to give their pilots at least ten hours of rest between work shifts. Starting next year, flight attendants will have to get the same downtime. Here's NPR's David schaeffer. It is well documented that fatigue can negatively impact job performance. So airline pilots have long been required to have at least ten hours of rest time before fly. The FAA is acting administrator Billy Nolan says flight attendants need just as much rest. I'm a pilot. And as any pilot

The justice who will immediately look at this emergency request is clarence Thomas.

The Vilification of Successful Black Men With Dr. Ben Carson

"Of speaking with justice clarence Thomas at some point earlier this year and it's just an amazing thing to hear how he bought in to the angry black man ideology until he woke up to the truth and we just see the astonishing accomplishments that he has made just a hero and yet he like you is mostly vilified in the mainstream media and by the Democratic Party as somehow getting it wrong. I mean, it's just fascinating to me that you could be one of the greatest surgeons in the world. You could be in the cabinet of the president of the United States. You could be a Supreme Court Justice. It's just amazing that the two of you, for example, who have been such a so dramatically successful, would be vilified. What do you think is behind that? Who is behind that? Well, you know, I grew up in Detroit, a very liberal place. And Boston a very liberal place. Went to New Haven, a very little place, and then Ann Arbor, very liberal place, and in Baltimore, very little place. So I was a very liberal individual. Until I did something that the liberal has never supposed to do. I listened to a conservative, I listened to Ronald Reagan. And I said, this guy sounds just like my mother. He's saying exactly the same stuff the same philosophy. And I started really examining my belief system. I was noticing that so many of the patients that I was seeing at each Baltimore. Were dependent on the government. They were perfectly able bodied people. I said, this is wrong. And there is a system that is absolutely deleterious to the aspirations of these people. And that's really when I started making a significant change. Once the media for whom I was a darling discovered that I had made that change and now I was a conservative has evil. He's an evil person. He's a terrible, terrible person. Because they don't want the narrative of self reliance out there.

"Met clarence Thomas one of these fortunate episodes in 1983. I was a senior in college, I was interning in D.C. and vice president Bush was going up to campaign of all things for my uncle, who was the Republican mayor of Bridgeport, Connecticut. He was a conservative. It was 5 to one Democrat registration and Bridgeport, the Democrats kept running the loser in the primary as the independent in any event. George wishes going up there, I was invited to fly up in the air force two. To go to the event. And up in Bridgeport was clarence Thomas, who was at another event, he was the eeoc chairman at the time. And my mentor was a gentleman by the name of Tom lady who became the ambassador to the Vatican under Bush 41. But he was hosting clarence Thomas. And after those two events, we met at a hotel lobby with Vassar maladie and wanted justice Thomas clarence Thomas's aides and talked for about an hour. And he was electrifying, right? He was just full of energy, full of ideas, the nicest guy, just you know him, did he just, yeah, so he made an impact on me. And that was the only time I met him at that time, but it made an impact. Flash forward to 1989. I'm in the Bush 41 White House. I'm working on judicial selection. And being young, I think it was 26, a volunteering when we were looking at clarence Thomas for the D.C. circuit. And so I offered to reach out to him and other people had talked to him informally, but this was kind of the first time the judicial selection committee and I think February of 89 met to decide, okay, what are we doing about the D.C. circuit? I reached out to justice Thomas, young aide in The White House. He's a German the EOC couldn't have been nicer. We ended up talking for an hour. I told him I wanted to get him to send me all of his speeches, articles, all that kind of stuff so we could do that due diligence, right? Long before the Internet, right? Get stuff in paper. So he sent over everything. I still have the letter. It's dated March of 89 somewhere in there. And that became or began our friendship. Where I loved reading his stuff, right? So when you talk about did I recognize yes. This guy was principal, a fighter at that time he was calling out Congress for their hypocrisy and their craziness or he had been a chairman of the EEOC. They had had something like 60 oversight hearings, right? And then you had the black leadership continually pounding clearance Thomas. And you see him standing up and not bending,

Lauren Chen on the GOP Abandoning the Idea of Traditional Marriage

"With us as Lauren Chen, who is now a 20 point USA contributor. Congratulations. Welcome aboard. Thank you. I'm so happy to be part of the team and also here at SAS. This is amazing. Thank you. It's conservatives, all these media outlets covering. You guys are doing an amazing job so happy to be part of the team. We're honored. You're a great talent. And the first time we met, I think, was that our young women's leadership summit. And I told Andrew. She's super smart. Let's do something together. So a lot of things we can get into. I do want to kind of piggyback on this conversation that we were having at Lauren boebert about 47 Republicans that voted for this bill and excusable voted for this bill. You haven't unique kind of take or twist on it. What is that? So here's the thing. Ever since roe was overturned, we automatically started hearing all these left to say, oh, they're coming for gay marriage, not only that, but they're also coming for interracial marriage, which is pretty crazy, especially since the boogeyman they're trying to conjure is clarence Thomas, who is in fact married to a woman. Married. Exactly. And that's really frustrating to me because, I mean, not only if you're a libertarian, you should agree that marriage should be left up to the states, right? Even if you're not socially conservative, but what they're trying to do with equating gay marriage to interracial marriage, I think, is honestly a mockery and an insult to anyone who's in an interracial relationship who comes from an interracial relationship. You know, my parents, one is white, one is Asian. My husband, he's part native and part white. So I would say I'm in an interracial relationship as well, trying to compare what I have to same sex marriage. That is not the same thing. You know, traditionally historically there's nothing about interracial marriages that has gone against the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman and so I feel like trying to throw interracial marriages into the mix. It's just a way to scare people to try to make the GOP see more extreme. And it really doesn't make any sense if you stop to just think about it for two seconds, but we know that the media, they're helping to gin up the hysteria.

Doug Deep Dives Into Recent Supreme Court Decisions

"When you look at the courts decisions over the years, you either have a group that is called more of the originalist or constitutionalist that believe that the founding document, the constitution, is the banner by which everything else is measured. It's the measuring stick. And if it's in the founding fathers, enumerated rights, they said, this is what the federal government is going to do. And then they have riots at plenty of rights that are interpreted or founded in the constitution that may not be a numerator, but through tradition and through others is Alito and others have said in the abortion decision recently and we've seen it in the writings of Neil Gorsuch, clarence Thomas and others. That are just they're there and they're protected as we go for. Now, they may be brought out of amendments, but they may be in the constitution actual wording yourself. And then you have rises the Tenth Amendment of the constitution says that any rise that are not given to the federal government or named in the constitution are then given to the states or the people. This is where we're seeing the interesting mix right now because you have it now a majority of the court that is constitutionalist or originalist in their intent. They frame everything about what the constitution said or did not say. And then you have the grouping on the court and the political opinion that says, no, the constitution is evolving, that you're supposed to use it as a measuring stick, but the measuring shit can be altered based on cases now and decisions of what's going on as we currently have it. This is what is formed the problem if you would are the crisis of many. And when you get decisions that have been handed out over the last few weeks, such as the Second Amendment decision out of New York, in which clarence Thomas actually declared that, you know, the Second Amendment could not be treated as a lesser right. What happened in the state of New York was is they had a may issue condition on a carry permit or an owner's permit for a gun in New York State. What the reality was that you had to show just calls. Well, the just calls as clarence Thomas and others agreed on the court was the just cause was you have the Second Amendment. The just call says that you can own a firearm for your protection as you can keep that farm and it's not up to the state to keep you from it for arbitrary reasons such as a just calls provision saying, well, do you really need it or not?

R. Kelly Sentenced to 30 Years in Prison

"Oh man, my R. Kelly kales, kales, 30 years. In federal penitentiary, now do we deserve it? I didn't watch the trial, but I heard some rumors about R. Kelly and it sound like he deserved it. But people that make it a comparison between Yelena Maxwell and R. Kelly. And if you don't know R. Kelly is, he was one of the most prolific R&B singers of all time. I think he's one of the greatest artists to ever live. One of them, the dude was a songwriter producer. I mean, R. Kelly music steel fire. I'm just gonna keep it real with y'all. R. Kelly still has some of the best music that has ever been put out there. However, you can't be messing with underage girls and doing all this so crazy stuff. You will go to prison.

Accountability Is Missing From the Abortion Debate

"I think it makes me more and more upset with what these people are saying. Like, I'm starting to be angry at people or the actions of people who are trying to force abortion down the throats of young women. And also society. Cut it out already. Women have plenty of choices. An abortion should not be one of them. And what happened to accountability? I think the left's entire argument and premise is on no accountability no accountability whatsoever. The white man put the drugs in the community. That's why black people are a drug addict and selling drugs all day. No. I never picked up drugs and sold it to my brothers or sisters. I had a choice. You don't have to sell drugs just 'cause you live in a place where there's drugs available. I own tons of guns. They don't mean I have to go and shoot people with them. There's a thing called accountability.

West Hollywood Votes to Reduce Funding for Law Enforcement

"A story coming out of West Hollywood, California. Where Hollywood votes to cut, Los Angeles County sheriff funding amid crime wave. The trendy Los Angeles County community has voted to reduce law enforcement funding despite escalating crime that was up a 137% earlier this year and public backlash. The budget from the next two for the next two fiscal years will leave West Hollywood with up to 5 fewer Los Angeles County sheriff deputies on patrol. At the same time, the council approved increased funding for cultural arts festivals. The budget was approved by a narrow three to two vote with mayor Lauren Meister and dissenting dissenting as well as councilman John Erickson.

Bringing the Truth to the Black Community

"I really wish that the message would be explained. You know, Larry, do you think you think that we're improving here? As far as our country and the rhetoric getting to the inner city communities, because I'm often questioning, is it getting through the minds of young people? Because when we talk, they come and criticize us in a painters. It's Uncle Tom's. And it's hard to get the message out. Well, it's all about telling the truth. And now it's about 20% of black men voted for Donald Trump in 2016. The highest ever and you're finding a declining numbers regarding Joe Biden because of crime because of inflation because of the price of gas. So I think there is a there's some signs of hope that maybe just maybe some people need to rethink their assumptions. So I'm hopeful. We just got to keep telling the truth, Brandon. I was giving a speech one time. And as you know, frequently, I'm invited by Republican clubs and almost invariably just a handful of blacks are there. So I'm giving a talk and there's a black guy standing in the back. Big guy, his arms are folded and he's taking his head left to right when I'm making a point. I think this guy's going to kill me. So the speech is over. The guy comes up and he said, I am mad. Not it's you. I made it myself. I thought I was on top of things. I had no idea that there was a 50% interest in the dropout rate. And I had no idea that regarding interracial black white violent crime, not homicide, 85% black and white victim, only 15% the other way around. I had no idea that 70% of black kids into the world without a father married to the mother up from 25% in 1965. Thank you so much for enlightening me. I need to do better job of educating myself.

Why the Left Sees Clarence Thomas as a Threat

"So there's a few subjects that I want to talk about. You know, I was going to start out with O. J. Simpson, but I think that's too hot for the audience now. We'll get to OJ, but I want to hear from you, Larry. About your always nice to hear what kind of comments O. J. Simpson has. What if Jonathan Smollett think? Exactly. Probably the two least people with credibility on Planet Earth. But I wanted to talk to someone a little more serious because I wanted to bring you on a talk about what's happening to clarence Thomas, because I think the all out racist attack on clarence Thomas is despicable. And I wanted to hear your thoughts Larry on what they're doing to such an honorable intelligent, great, respected man, now that roe V wade has been overturned. Well, it isn't just roe V wade, although that's the latest reason that they're jumping up and down about clarence Thomas. But they've always hated clarence Thomas. He refused the narrative. So do you so do I? These are proud black men who do not believe that America is systemically racist. I do not believe it's a major problem facing America anymore and refutes the whole left wing narrative. The whole left wing narrative is that America is full of racism. We need to have things like critical race theory and all sorts of special handouts and privileges for black people because they won't be able to navigate through America because America has so many white races in it. So somebody like Claire and Thomas is a direct threat. And so after this case comes down, by the way, he's not even the one that wrote the majority of the decision. It was a who wrote it. But he's the one getting all the flag.

"KA. I want everybody to see the movie, Michael. I want everybody to read the bookmark. But share if you will a little of the klans Thomas that we don't know. The prior to the hearing, the amazing story of how he grew up, his family, the less than conservative clarence Thomas in college, share a little bit of a history of that the pre famous clans Thomas. Well, as you know, he was born in pinpoint Georgia in 1948. And it's a gullah speaking area. So his English was not his first language. His father left before he could remember, so he was raised by his mother, who then took clarence Thomas and his brother to Savannah, where he suffered dire poverty, hungry, all the time, called in the winter, brought to school, and then left and then he'd walk out and wander the streets of Savannah until his mother brought him to her father, his grandfather to raise, and that justice Thomas life round. And hard work, his grandfather said, the damn vacation is over. Two boys thought, what vacation? And it was work all the time. They went to school. They went home and they worked on the Catholic school, right? That's right. He was Catholic or very unusual thing for black men in those days, and he sent them to a parochial school. Remember, it's the segregated south. It was all black, but run by these Irish nuns that continue to give them discipline hard work, a rigorous curriculum. And he thrived, and wanted to be a priest, which a lot of people do not know. And enrolled in the seminary. Only one of two or the only black seminaries. Right. He was integrating what were formerly all white seminaries. And he would have been one of the first black priests in Savannah. But it was the late 60s, and he experienced racism there. And as you reached a peak, perhaps when he was watching Martin Luther when Martin Luther King Jr. was shot and one of the seminary and says, I hope that SOB dies. And then something snapped. Something snapped, and he became a black radical, as you say, less than less than a conservative. He said, the more radical the better, describes themselves as an angry black man. And he went to holy cross where he got a full scholarship. His grandfather kicked him out of the house when he lost his vocation. And he went through this radical period. And we tell that story. And then the story of him coming back to his faith and coming back to what he thinks of as the principles of his grandfather and the nuns that raised him. That are the principles of the declaration and the constitution. And then which is why we call it created equal. And that's a very torturous and difficult journey. It's a beautiful story though. His return is a beautiful story and that the refining of his faith. It is a beautiful story. It began when he went to an anti war riot in Cambridge or anti war rally that became a ride. And he got caught up in the rye out in the madness of the crowd and he saw what he was becoming, and he did not like it. And although he had lost his faith, drifted away from the camera. When he went back to holy cross that day, it was early morning. Wee hours of the morning, the chapel was closed, but he knelt in front of the chapel, and prayed that if God would take angry at his heart, he would never hate again. And as he says in both the book and the film, that was the beginning of his slow journey back to his faith, and to his conservative ideas. And it is a great story. And it's because he's gone he's rejected those ideas that come back to them that he holds them in a deep way. I mean, that's one of the reasons why he's unshakable. Has the courage. Because he has the roots. Yes, he has the roots, and he knows what it's like when you're on the other side..

"And even John turley because I don't feel they have a raised enough the issue of the opposition and questioning other witnesses, but I have to say today they did a pretty good job, actually. So I give them credit where credit is due. All right, back. There's a very good summary of this by Charles cook at national review. In New York rifle versus brewing, the court affirmed the gun rights or do the same protection as all other constitutional rights. Stanley, the most important Second Amendment ruling. In recent times it is potentially the most important second ruling in American history. And one of the reasons for that is it's author, clarence Thomas. For all the bru ha ha, the question at hand was rather straightforward from the state of New York required that applicants for gun carry permits. Demonstrate a special need for self protection distinguishable from that at the general community. Where's New York obliged by the constitutional offer a shall issue regime of the sort that 43 of the other 49 states have adopted? So the left is trying to suggest this is some kind of a radical decision because they're nuts. That's what they are. They don't believe in individual liberty, except when it comes to their ideology. By a 63 vote the justices decided that the latter approaches required. In the United States, clarence Thomas maturity opinion concluded authorities must issue concealed carry licenses. Whenever applicants satisfy certain threshold requirements. Without granting licensing officials discretion to deny licenses based on a perceived lack of need or so, but suitability. So those of us who have carry permits, you have to meet the requirements for carry permit. A bureaucrat or a judge is not free to sit there and say, you know, you don't really need this gun. You don't really need this gun. And while there is nothing illegal about America's existing state level permitting systems, in other words, they can permit them. They can play some requirements on them. Those systems may not be mere smoke screens for outright prohibition. Are unequal Or unacceptable delay. We do not rule out Thomas had in a footnote any constitutional challenges to shall he regimes where, for example, long wait times and processing license applications are exorbitant fees and I ordinary citizens, the right to public carried. So states are free within a range to make decisions about having weapons, but they can't have the ability and delegate it to a bureaucrat or a judge or so forth to say, well look, you don't really need it. That's not good enough. It's just a solido was keen to note the holding decides nothing about who may lawfully possess a firearm. At the requirements that must be met to buy a gun, nor does it decide anything about the kinds of weapons that people may possess. So the bottom line writes cook New York is allowed to exclude carry permit applications when a categorical basis. For example, the applicant has a felony conviction. But not on a subjective one. For example, the applicant doesn't need a gun in the view of the determining officer. That's all I did. That's all it is a very modest opinion. Very reasoned opinion, built on the prior Supreme Court cases and so forth. But on the other hand, you can't allow states, particularly blue states that just Willy nilly denied people the right. To have these weapons, we'll be right kind of. Now

"The law. An incredibly persuasive writer. Michael, in closing here, I have to ask you, what does he say in the book in the movie? I've not seen the movie. I've been meaning to. And I encourage our audience to check it out, created equal. About him not asking questions very often. What is the reason for that? We talked to him about this in the movie. Any more extensively in the book. And it's not too late to see the film, as I said. It's still screaming. You know, Amazon and many other places, if you go to our website, manifold productions dot com. You could find out how to stream it. And it's not an either or I recommend people watch the movie, and read the book, which is also available at Amazon and Barnes and nobles, and wherever else folks are sold. But he does talk about that at length. He really feels that each advocate during oral argument gets 30 minutes. And he thinks it's their time. And anything that any justice question or argument between the justice takes away from their time. And he wants to give him a chance to make their case. But maybe more importantly, as Mark was saying earlier, he talks about the process in the court and we are very focused on oral argument, but this is an appeals court, and that's not the heart of what they do. What they mainly do is write opinions, circulate them, discuss them. We're just as Thomas takes a leadership role as Mark said he wrote more opinions than any other justice. He defends them. He talks about them. He has a major leadership role. Many people now call this the Thomas court, whereas it's really the Roberts court, but in some ways he's the intellectual leader. And he just has a different view of oral argument. I do think it's notable that now that during COVID, when it was all virtual and more orderly, just as Thomas asked more questions. It's very good created equal. Everyone check it out. It's terrific. Justice Thomas in his own words. I want to just say this in closing. Every parent out there, you need to make sure your child is aware and is educated on who clarence Thomas is. It's one of the most amazing stories. It really is. Growing up in poverty and becoming a Supreme Court Justice, it's extraordinary. Thank you both. Created equal. Everyone check out a copy. Thank you very much. Thanks, Charlie.

"So, Mark, what is one of the takeaways from the book that you think that kind of one of our average listeners or average viewers will take away from reading this book? What do you think will be one of their things that they'll learn that they'll take away that they might not have otherwise known about clarence Thomas? His amazing life, number one, from pinpoint George up to the Supreme Court. But as you were talking about before in terms of the left requiring the think a certain way, justice Thomas really sort of in a much more detail than he does in the movie or even in his memoirs, really takes on the left and the destructiveness of their policies and why it was so selfish by the left to insist on policies that don't work that they don't care about people. You know, we talked about the black leadership and requiring justice Thomas to think a certain way. The black leadership is actually out of sync. With black Americans rank in file, poll after poll on issue after issue from school choice to abortion affirmative action to defund the police. And so it's this crazy thing Charlie where clarence Thomas is a threat to them because they have power and they get a lot of money, right? And if you go back to the confirmation, the NAACP did bizarrely oppose clarence Thomas, but it was at the insistence of the AFL CIO, a labor union, right? That funds the NAACP. And it provided the basis for both them and the women's groups of the pro abortion women's groups to attack justice Thomas and oppose him. But you really, you know, the movie is beautiful and powerful and it's visual, but the book is going to bring you much more inside the mind of justice Thomas and how he's talking about issues. Contemporary issues, policy issues that are out there, but on his life most especially in the lessons he's learned from these years, he's been both on the Supreme Court and in the Reagan administration. The justice Thomas memoirs went up to, they were published in 2007. There was a wonderful book, but it only goes up to the time he went on the Supreme Court. So this book talks to the justice about his judicial philosophy about some of the cases about his relationships with the justices like justice Scalia. So it's a real insight into how the court works, how cases are decided. And some of these important cases that Michael spent a lot of time talking to justice Thomas about, like grutter V bollinger, which is a race case, affirmative action case with Michigan. But you really get to see the justice taken on his critics and talking about his life. I just think that's so important. America is a freer country thanks to the leadership of clarence Thomas. There is no doubt. And I don't think he gets the credit he deserves, and he doesn't even want it. That's the amazing thing. You know, he writes more opinions per year than any justice on the Supreme Court three times as many as some of his colleagues. So in terms of that influence and not seeking the limelight, he is out there laying down his vision of the lock originalism that is leaving the court and we're going to see hopefully in Dobbs is coming around time and time again to justice Thomas's views on.

So Michael, tell us first about the movie or actually first tell us about the book that then inspired the movie and tell us what you have learned from the exceptional clarence Thomas. Well, so the way the movie came about, it's been about two years since it was released. It is that a bunch of people who were friends of justice Thomas a new me were concerned about how people who hated him in the left were telling a story. So I had not known that much about clarence Thomas at the time, but after meeting him, you quickly realized that what you said in your intro, trolley, that he's a great American with a great story. And I really wanted to tell it. So after working on the film for a while, I came to the conclusion he should tell the story himself in his own words that he and Jenny should be the only interviews. And I interviewed them for over 30 hours over multiple months. You know, more a longer interview more access than any Supreme Court Justice has ever given anyone in the history of the Supreme Court. And we worked on the film, and it was a two hour film. It was released for us to movie theaters till COVID knocked it out, and then it was nationally broadcast on PBS. Now has been streaming. And it's still streaming for those who want to see it or missed it. It's on Amazon, but it's on Salem and Fox nation and newsmax. And you could go to our website, manifold productions.

"To you by wondery and there will be wild podcast. On January 6th, thousands stormed the U.S. capitol on Trump's urging. Yeah, Ginny Thomas was possibly one of them. He had tweeted, be there, will be wild. From the critically acclaimed podcast studios pineapple street and wondery comes a new documentary series called will be wild. We'll be wild, shines a light on the human stories left out of the January 6th headlines and goes deep into the lives of people who took part in the day. The people who saw it coming and the people who fear that the insurrection was just the beginning. You'll hear from former U.S. intelligence members who warned about the incredible rise of violent extremists in America, a former soldier charged with seditious conspiracy and a son who turned his father into the FBI that story is, wow, it's nuts. It's so cool. You should listen to the show. It's really good. We'll be wild is a close up look at the four year effort to bring autocracy to America and what the insurrection could mean for the future of our democracy follow will be wild wherever you get your podcasts. You can listen early on Amazon music or early and ad free by subscribing to wondery plus in the Apple podcasts or the wondery app. Canon three a judge should perform the duties of the office fairly impartially and diligently. The duties of the judicial office, take precedent over all other activities. The judge should perform those duties with respect for others, should not engage in behavior that is harassing abusive prejudiced or bias, and should adhere to the following standards I thought this subsection a 6 kind of hit me. A judge shook not make public comment on the merits of a matter pending or impending in any court. A judge should require similar restraint by court personnel subject to the judge's discretion and control. The prohibition on public content on the merits does not extend to public statements made in the course of the judge's official duties to explanations of court procedures or to scholarly presentations made for purposes of legal education, and it is that last kind of loophole that clarence Thomas drives a truck through. The way a normal person would read that description is, yeah, you don't talk about outcomes of upcoming cases. However, if you're in front of a legal conference of practitioners, you could use a pending case, right? As a description of a certain aspects of legal procedure, so long as you're not intending to violate this rule. But what you shouldn't be doing is going to the federalist society and saying, you know, I feel real good about the fact that in our next term, we're probably going to overturn the right to abortion and clarence Thomas does that sort of stuff all the time. They're literally too many instances to list. Subsection C on disqualification, I think this is the knock down argument. A judge shall disqualify himself for herself in a proceeding, which the judges impartiality might reasonably be questioned. That's the standard from which you need to recuse yourself. Could a reasonable person looking at the situation saying, I'm not sure you're all the way impartial here. And if the answer to that question is yes, your job is to recuse yourself. And other justices take that seriously. Elena Kagan was solicitor general, and everything that comes close to a case that passed her desk when she was arguing before the Supreme Court. She recuses herself on. Even in cases, now it's just, okay, well, that makes the 6 to two instead of 6 to three. But even in the 2013 to 2019 period where she had the potential to be a deciding vote, you recuse yourself because, yeah, you don't want a reasonable person to think you're impartiality might be questioned. And just to be clear, it goes on to state. This is in the text not the commentary, including but not limited to instances in which a, the judge has a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party or personal knowledge of disputed evidentiary facts concerning the proceeding. There's a financial or fiduciary interest. That's not important. Or the judge or the judge's spouse or a person related to either is known by the judge to have an interest that could be substantially affected by the outcome of the proceeding. Um. Tick that check box. Yeah, exactly right. And so I could continue to go on. I think I'm just going to end with, I'm going to skip over canon four, canon 5 says a judge should refrain from political activity. General prohibitions, a judge should not one act as a leader or hold any office in a political organization to make speeches for a political organization or candidate or publicly endorse or oppose a candidate for public office. Solicit funds pay an assessment to make a contribution to a political organization or candidate or a tender purchase a ticket for dinner at other events sponsored by political organization or candidate and a judge. And then, okay, you might be like, all right, I've navigated all of that. I've never paid to go to a Trump event and then you get C, all other political activity, a judge should not engage in any other political activity. It just couldn't be more clear. And the term in the commentary, the term political organization refers to a political party, a group affiliated with a political party or candidate for public office or an entity whose principal purpose is to advocate for or against political candidates or parties it connection with elections for public office. Okay, I think I have demonstrated to sufficient degree that clarence Thomas has violated the canons of ethics. Now, is that a high crime or misdemeanor? And the answer is it doesn't have to be. And here's why. Article three section one says the judicial power of the United States of the constitution says the judicial power of the United States shall be vested in one Supreme Court and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts shall hold their offices during good behavior and shall at stated times receive for their services a compensation which shall not be diminished during their continuance in office. That's the end of what the constitution says about judges, but it says they hold their office during good behavior. You combine that with article two section four, which says that the president, vice president, and all civil officers of the United States shall be removed from office on impeachment. Now, that continues to say for and conviction of treason bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors, but you have to put that together and say, okay, judges serve during good behavior. Judges are civil officers of the United States. Therefore, judges can be removed via impeachment for failure to demonstrate good behavior. And I want to tell you that if you're asking is this deeply steeped in our nation's history and traditions, the answer to that is, yes. Yeah. Well, I remember when we were talking about impeachment of Trump, there was often a judge that came up as the example of impeachment, right? Yeah, the very first judge to be impeached was John Pickering of the United States District Court of the district of New Hampshire, in 1803, and he was impeached for being drunk on the bench. And not only was he impeached, he was convicted by the Senate. He was removed from office on March 12th, 1804. But Andrew is being drunk a high crime. It might get you, now I'd say I felt like I don't think it even counts as being high. It's not a crime. He was not guilty of public intoxication in a criminal sense. He was a drunk. And they added the charges of mental instability to that, by the way. Not exactly the most enlightened language from 1803, but yeah, the idea was, this guy's drunk and does dumb stuff on the bench and therefore we want him out. And I want to tell you 15 times the Congress has impeached sitting article three judges, including one Supreme Court Justice, and only four were acquitted. 8 were convicted three more resigned because they were about to be convicted. That's pretty great ratio. Of success. And again, it is littered throughout the sum of these folks committed crimes, but some of them judge delahaye in 1873 also removed for being drunk. Now, you know, judge west Hughes humphreys of Tennessee was impeached in 1862 for insurrection. So the charges were refusing to hold court and waging war against the United States government..

"And honorable judiciary is indispensable to justice in our society. A judge should maintain and enforce high standards of conduct and should personally observe those standards so that the integrity and independence of the judiciary may be preserved the provisions of this code should be construed and applied to further that objective. That's the end of it, but like many of these ethics codes, it has a commentary section that's like, okay, man, that's a great high sounding highfalutin principle. What does that mean? And the commentary says, the canons are rules of reason. They should be applied consistently with constitutional requirements, statutes, other court rules, decisional law and in the context of all relevant circumstances. The code is to be construed so it does not impinge on the essential independence of judges in making judicial decisions. Not every violation of the code should lead to disciplinary action, whether it is appropriate and the degree of discipline should be determined through a reasonable application and should depend on such factors as the seriousness of the improper activity, the intent of the judge, whether there is a pattern of improper activity and the effect of that improper activity on others or on the judicial system. Okay, so that's kind of the general principle and it says, let's read it broadly. Let's think about how often these conflicts come up. Let's think about the intent of the judge in doing so and the effect that it has. I would argue clarence Thomas is not doing the farewell by those metrics. But let's look at the specifics. So canon two says a judge should avoid impropriety and the appearance of impropriety in all activities. Then there are sub canons here. A respect for law, a judge should respect and comply with the law and should act at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary. And B, outside influence, a judge should not allow family, social, political, financial, or other relationships to influence judicial conduct or judgment, a judge should neither lend the prestige of the judicial office to advance the private interests of the judge or others, nor convey or permit others to convey the impression that they are in a special position to influence the judge. Yeah. Okay, that sounds bad. But maybe the commentary will exclude. No, no, no, but it's totally fine to have if you really have strong political beliefs. No, it's actually way worse than that. The commentary says, an appearance of impropriety occurs when reasonable minds with knowledge of all the relevant circumstances disclosed by a reasonable inquiry would conclude that the judge's honesty integrity impartiality temperament or fitness to serve as a judge is impaired. This prohibition applies to both professional and personal conduct, a judge must expect to be the subject of constant public scrutiny and accept and willingly restrictions I know that grammar messed up, but except freely and willingly restrictions that might be viewed as burdensome by the ordinary citizen. So instantly. What does that mean? That means you get to be on the Supreme Court. That's super cool. You know what that means? It means you can't show up, do whatever you want. I know that if I got to be on the Supreme Court, it means I wouldn't be able to do the show anymore. It means I probably wouldn't be able to speak at the American atheist convention anymore. And you know what? That's okay. That's what comes along with being on the Supreme Court. I'm sorry, Thomas. Don't worry about it. But at least I'll be able to exert influence on your decisions on the court. There's no chance I'm going to be on the Supreme Court. But if I did, you know that that's not what that attitude. Yeah. Yeah. Because it is not practicable to list all prohibited acts, the prohibition is necessarily cast in general terms that extend a conduct by judges that is harmful enough, although not specifically mentioned in the code. And then more on to be a judgment avoid lending the prestige of his office to advance the private interests of the judge or others. For example, a judge should not use the judge's judicial position or title to gain advantage in litigation involving a friend or member of the judge's family in contracts for publication of a judge's writings a judge should retain control over the advertising to avoid exploitation of the judge's office. And here's where I think that the giving over your list of clerks all of a sudden a message from your wife, you know, the wife of your judge comes through. That seems to me like using the prestige of your office to advance Jenny Thomas ability to offer an apology. So I took that as like she's just trying to make nice with people she would be friends with or associated with through clarence Thomas. Does that gain her some sort of something? I don't know. Yeah, I think saying, hey, I feel comfortable taking this back channel communication that is buying between Thomas clerk's and justice Thomas and turning it over as an outlet for my wife to issue a statement. Again, you get the sense. If you want to say that one feels like maybe that's a push. I can accept that argument. I want us to push back. I want it to be clear that the way in which as you read these canons of judicial ethics, so much of the conduct is so far over the line that you want to quibble with that one. Let's take that one off the table then. This is also the section that prohibits judges from belonging to racially restrictive country clubs and the like. So there's an entire canon C two C on membership in organizations that have discriminatory policies. And it led to this note, which I thought was interesting, which is, although canon two C relates only to membership and organizations that invidiously discriminate on the basis of race sex religion or national origin. And again, it means those country clubs. A judge's membership in an organization that engages in any invidiously discriminatory membership practice prohibited by applicable law. Violates the larger cannons, two and two a and gives the appearance of impropriety. And so again, that means the more you're pussyfooting around with these white supremacist groups like the Proud Boys, these groups that have the potential to appear on like a southern poverty law center 8 group. Doesn't necessarily, but if they have practices that and again, I know it seems weird when we're talking about an African American justice on the Supreme Court. We should add that Virginia Thomas's white. I don't know that that matters. What matters is that both she and her husband give aid and comfort to white supremacist groups. How does clarence Thomas square that circle? I could begin to speculate, but I don't know that that's important to me. Those groups, I think you hear the broadness of the language that if you belong to an organization that officially has discriminatory policy, that violates the specific canon two C as far as we know clarence Thomas does not, because that would be weird. But the larger principle, if you're part of any group that engages in discriminatory behavior, that per se gives the appearance of impropriety. Of course it does, right? And you should be staying away from groups that are 1° of separation away from Stephen Miller. A judge should use better discretion than that. This shows brought to you by zip recruiter. Hey, certain people just make life so much easier. I don't know what I do without them, and this is giving me a chance to sing Andrew's praises. It gives me in the examples your co host here, and that is so true. Andrew is the most reliable person week in week out so much insight on the show. It's amazing.

"Story that broke was that Ginny Thomas was there on the day of the one 6 insurrection that started being picked up in the press. And she gave the Bill Clinton list of answers, which was, you know, I went to the watch 6 rally, but I didn't inhale any insurrection. I didn't like it, and I left, and literally she was like, well, I was cold, and I left. This insurrection left me cold. This would be worse. My biggest problem with the insurrection was an ambient temperature. You know, the restaurants and the outdoor seating, they got those gas powered heaters. Why didn't they have those at the insurrection weird? So that got out, and that led Ginnie Thomas to send an email to all of clarence Thomas's past clerks. And so again, this is an internal email list to clarence Thomas's former clerks. They get to get out of an email list or it was reported as an email list in Politico, which is to say it could be a Discord server. It could be, it could be any number of things, but it's a way of reaching out to a curated list from which derives from a direct relationship to clarence Thomas, that is, his former clerks. And she writes, I owe you all an apology. I have likely imposed on you my lifetime passions. My passions and beliefs are likely shared with the bulk of you, but certainly not all, and sometimes the smallest matters can divide loved ones for too long. Let's pledge not to not let politics divide this family and learn to speak more gently and knowingly across the divide. So that was the apology that she sent out to former clearance Thomas clerks when it got kind of bubbled back to her of like, hey, not a fantastic look that you're at the insurrection. And she wrote back and was like, yeah, okay. Sure, that was my bad. I'm so sorry about that insurrection between friends. Between friends, that's exactly right. And again, the important thing here is using a judicial resource for cleaning up that mess. And then the third category of stuff that, again, I've relegated this to an afterthought because there's sort of almost too much of this to mention. Jenny Thomas is on the board of a group called the council for national policy. The council for national policy has been advocating conservative stuff for two decades, but they went a 100% full on QAnon in this past election cycle and were behind a deliberate but non public effort to reach out and ask their members to contact if they knew certain legislators in various states to contact to support the fraudulent appointment of additional alternative slates of electors after Trump lost the 2020 election. So I would say partners in insurrection. Center for national policy, Jenny Thomas serves on that board, clarence Thomas goes and speaks before them all the time. He's been a keynote speaker. He endorses what they do. And we have, again, a list that is just too long to mention on this front. And I wanted to parse it. The reason I want to talk about groups like the council for national policy and the truly extreme groups are because I sense that there is maybe some discomfort for just being a federalist society hack. But I would tell you as we get into the specific standards. I think showing up and giving rah rah speeches for the federalist society is also a violation of the judicial canon of ethics that we're going to get to. In fact, the very next segment. But so these are the three things that I think and I'm going to persuade you by giving you the evidence in the next segment. Thomas has done that violate the judicial canons of ethics. They are one. The failure to recuse himself in obvious conflicts of interest situation where his wife is an activist on the other side. Number two, giving his wife, who was a political activist, access to court resources, and number three, giving fawning keynote speeches to those same activist groups where his wife works, who are engaged in partisan politics on one side of an issue and in an extreme way. So what about the ethics rules? And we've alluded to this before, the ethics rules exist. They apply to all federal judges. That includes the Supreme Court. The problem is, is that there's no one to enforce against the Supreme Court. But it defines what constitutes ethical or unethical conduct by a federal judge, including a Supreme Court Justice. You don't have to take my word for it at the end. Go to U.S. courts dot gov, I'll link it in the show notes. At the end of the code of conduct of United States judges, it says compliance with the code of conduct. Anyone who was an officer of the federal judicial system authorized to perform judicial functions is a judge for the purpose of this code subject to and the exceptions are things like part time judges and retired judges who are specially assigned and so forth. So that includes Supreme Court Justices, Supreme Court Justices are officers of the federal judicial system who perform judicial functions. They perform the highest judicial functions. Thomas conduct, word performed by any sitting federal judge not on the Supreme Court, would be enough to get that judge sanctioned. Absolutely a 100%. I can prove it to you. We're going to go through those cannons right now. We begin and there's only 5, right? And Thomas is violated at least three of them. There's a catch all canon one, a judge should uphold the integrity and independence of the judiciary. Here's how that reads..

"Passing a modest infrastructure Bill. That is sure how Joe Biden has ruined America, standing up for Ukraine and passing a modest infrastructure Bill. It was definitely disturbing, is low of an opinion as I had of clarence Thomas. It is disturbing to learn that he's married to a chain email from the 2000s come to life. You know, just the worst conservative family member that you don't even talk to is Facebook feed. You know, that level of that's surprised. That was surprising even to me. I did not know the extent of her activism until this. So I'm with you. So I'm going to share three text messages until I was doing a lot of work there. That's true. Conspiracy tinfoil hat in this, you know, just it's a crazy. And this is the evolution. So tinfoil hat here, this is now November 24th. So week after that 5 days later, I can't see Americans swallowing the obvious fraud. Just going with one more thing with no freaking consequences. Yes, we got it. We're evangelical Christians. We can't say the F word. The whole coup, the whole coupe. That's what it says. The whole coup and now this, we just cave to people wanting Biden to be anointed, many of us can't continue the GOP charade. That's what's amazing, too, is the way that they're talking to each other. Like when I talk to you, Andrew, like we're on the same page, but I don't just text you occupy Democrats talking points, Andrew, the radical right, like what a weird way to interact. Like this is just this person's brain is just rotten with these conspiracies and stuff. So the point where this is how they're talking. This is how they talk to people. Yeah, this is not public facing. This is like not meant to be. This is a text message. This was sent on January 10th. And this is, well, this was sent on January 10th. Quote, we are living through what feels like the end of America. Now, mind you. This is four days after the insurrection after the riot at the capitol after the well of the Senate was breached with a guy in goat horns and an army of Red Hat mega idiots looking to hang Mike Pence, kill Nancy Pelosi and stop the certification and peaceful transfer of power. What bothers Virginia Thomas is. We're living through what feels like the end of America. Most of us are disgusted with the VP. That is. Are upset at Mike Pence for not stealing an election and are in a listening mode to see where to fight with our teams. Now, wow. Those who attacked the capitol are not representative of our great teams of patriots for DJT exclamation point exclamation point, amazing times. End of liberty. I can't even handle this. I can't handle it. Not handling it is an appropriate response. But Andrew, someone might say, okay, this is a Supreme Court Justice with a highly disturbed wife who has gone down the rabbit hole of a God knows what. We can't punish somebody for being married to somebody like that. Like that doesn't strike me as grounds for impeachment. That's plausible on the surface level. But I think there are two answers to that. The first is a case called Trump versus Thompson. That's Benny Thompson. This was Donald Trump's declaratory judgment lawsuit seeking to block among others the national archives from turning over records that had been declared by the Trump administration to be executive privilege, but declared by the next administration to not be executive privileged and rather trying to hide facts from the one 6 commission. Donald Trump sued to block the transmission of those records we covered it on the show. That went all the way up to the Supreme Court on the shadow docket because again, this is a request for emergency relief. And the Supreme Court 8 to one in an opinion in a not a per curium opinion, an opinion author authored and signed by Brett Kavanaugh to emphasize this. As Trump justice, as you can find, the Supreme Court said, yeah, that's an insane position that you have taken Donald Trump. Executive privilege belongs to the office and the fact that you labeled all the crimes. Oh, and also this is crimes our lawyers talked about. So don't turn them over. The fact that you labeled those executive privilege is not determinative. What is determinative is the executive branch. Because that's how this thing works. And the loan dissenting justice, clarence Thomas. The audacity. The audacity of clarence Thomas. To be the lone dissenting justice in this case, I mean, even getting into the mind of this person. Like, you're not gonna win. It's 8 to one. The only thing you are doing is signaling loud and clear, I don't want my wife's text to get out or whatever. Just go with the majority of be like, yeah, no, definitely. It doesn't do anything. This is crazy. This is signing your name on your crime, essentially. It seems to me. The reason that outrages me so much, Andrew. Is because it shows how little regard these justices can have for public opinion for anything. And it's directly related to the ability to lie, flat out lie and gaslight about roe V wade and about the history and about the law there. It's exactly related to that. The fact that clarence Thomas can sit there and be the lone descent on an obvious knock down case that even the other trumpers on the court are like, yeah, no, this is obvious. But because he's so obviously ruling to try to protect his wife in a corrupt way. The fact that he could do that and not expect to face any consequences for that is the same reason why Alito can write all that bullshit and we just have no choice. We just have to, okay, cool. You took away roe V wade on completely bullshit grounds. There's nothing we could do about it. It's the same thing. I think that's really insightful. I agree with that. So where I was going to go next is in addition to dissenting to intervene and what looks like a doomed effort to protect his wife's texts and related conspiracy theory texts from getting out to the one 6th committee. There is also clarence Thomas, handing over judicial resources to his wife, Jenny Thomas..

"Tell you, this might have been a good one to bring back the fantastic, just because I'm not, it's not fantastic news, but I'm so glad we are finally doing this episode. This is one that it hasn't been on the whiteboard nearly as long as eminent domain was. Nothing will ever break that record. That is the Wayne Gretzky's points record of records. Cal Ripken's consecutive streak. Yes. But this is one that's in the short ish time that it's been on the whiteboard. I have wanted it more than anything, which is, as you've seen in the episode title, listeners impeach clarence Thomas. This is, wow, this is an OA that I've been waiting for, so I am fantastic that we're finally getting to it even though this is the worst and he's the worst and Ginny is the worst, but I'm glad we're finally getting this OA deep dive. Yeah, me too. Impeaching clarence Thomas, OA deep dive, here we go. Yeah, so let me stake my position up front. I'm not going to hide the ball here. I believe that the house should convene a subcommittee of the judiciary committee. Dedicated to investigating and the impeaching clarence Thomas. And I want to answer the two objections that you might have that anybody listening to that might have. And in my view, those two objections would be number one, has clarence Thomas committed crimes. Are they high crimes and misdemeanors? Does it meet the legal standard for impeaching a defense again? And number two, does it matter? Who cares right all of that? And so let's let me hit the defeatism one first, right? Here's why you should care. If you have a House committee to investigate and undertake if the evidence supports it, which I believe the publicly available evidence already supports it, the impeachment of clarence Thomas, that committee can do everything the one 6 committee is doing. It can subpoena witnesses. It can subpoena documents. We can find out all of the stuff that we do not presently know because my guess is if we know what we know, there's probably way more that we don't know. So benefit number one is obtaining additional information about what the most corrupt member of the Supreme Court is doing. Benefit number two is I would argue not just as kind of staking a legal principle, not just standing up for right and wrong. But I would argue that the two impeachments of Donald Trump did practical good. They didn't do enough good because we impeached Trump, but we didn't convict him. He's a blot on American history. The first impeachment persuaded Justin amash, right? Absolutely. Is he no longer in Congress? He's no longer in Congress. The second impeachment, 100% persuaded Adam kitzinger and Liz Cheney. And that's having a real effect right now. You can not say, oh, Liz Cheney isn't a real Republican. I mean, like, you can try and say that. They have tried to say that. That's a joke. Well, Republicans aren't real Republicans anymore. They are culture warriors for Trump. And so by that logic, she really isn't. But I see your point. Yeah, she thought I member of the Trump acolytes that all gathered together at the temple of doom. That's true. And I totally agree. I wanted to jump on in agreement with this. We talked about this with the Trump impeachments, as you brought up, get caught trying for one, don't do the work for them. That was another big argument that I made in the Trump impeachments. Don't do the work of, well, he's gonna get away with this, so let's preemptively not do the part where we try to make him not get away with it. That doesn't make sense. That's not how anything works. You know, like then you're complicit. Like if you're constantly anticipating what the other side is going to do that's basically criminal and then cowing to that, then you are part of it. And also, think historically, take some of the history's worst, you know, most egregious things are present, you know? Like, if you read that there was an impeachment drawn up because of, let's say, for example, this is definitely not true, but just for example, if you had read that like when we did the internment camps in World War II, if there had been like an impeachment committee of that, even though it failed, completely failed, they didn't get a conviction. What would you think historically would you be like, oh, well, you know, you'd be like, wow, those people took a stand. And history showed that they were right to be against this, and they did what they could, but they didn't have the support they needed. There were too many people who let this happen. You know, like, take a historical view, get caught trying, do what is morally right, and if it doesn't work out because our system sucks and we're hostage to this partisan thing where we need 66 centers or whatever it is 67, we're never going to get it. That's we can't control that. What you can with what you can control. I agree with that a 100%. I don't think could be better stated. So I won't state anything more on it. Now I'm curious, why haven't they done this? The house is pretty progressive, right? I mean, I'm surprised this hasn't already been drawn up. I think that's right, so when I talked about this subject to other progressives, I did get a kind of a pushback of okay, but really, is there and I can't high crimes and misdemeanors can mean anything and but is there really is this the kind of thing that you ought to impeach a Supreme Court Justice for? And that's what I want to devote the rest of the show the rest of this segment at least to. And that is, yes. So let's talk about the three kind of areas of conduct. Why they are attributable to clarence Thomas in sort of precisely what way. And then how that fits into the overarching legal regime. So first, what are we mad at? Now, there's a lot of times. It's a big list, but let me make sure that I'm hitting on all the things that we should be mad at because maybe I've even forgotten stuff. But I think I've got it. I think the turning point was, of course, the discovery of text messages released by the one 6th committee during that brief interval in which Trump's former chief of staff Mark Meadows was cooperating with the one 6th committee. And turned over 2600 text messages. And some of them were from Ginny Thomas. And all of the ones from Ginny Thomas were super disturbing. Yeah, so let's describe a few of those on November 19th. So two weeks after the election, Thomas wrote to Meadows, quote, sounds like Sydney and her team that's Sydney Powell. This is the wife of a sitting Supreme Court Justice who can not first name basis with Sidney Powell. And can I recognize that Cynthia Powell is a liar and lunatic. So sounds like Sydney and her team are getting inundated with evidence of fraught with evidence of fraud. Make a plan release the kraken and save us from the left taking America down. Jeez. That speaks for itself. That is, I am buying into the claim that the election was stolen. I want America's dumbest lawyer, well, I want somebody who is in the running in the Venn diagram intersection of America's dumbest lawyer and America's least ethical lawyer to get released to file all these lawsuits and the reason I want to do that is because the left is going to take America down if we don't..

"Ever do it to Clarence Thomas? Boy. Did they ever smack down a black man? What he called a hi tech lynching. You know? I was contemplating. I was contemplating playing some of the audio Of The hearing's today. Ramon pulled it always got it all. Edited up real nice and ready to plug in place so I could use it as needed. But you know what? I'm goingto audible. Ha! Oh, my hobby. Homa Bay. Audible. Man. Instead. In the next segment. I'm going to play Clarence Thomas's response. So what Joe Biden did to him. I'm going to taste them. If there is one thing and one thing, there are lots of reasons Joe Biden should be president. When you're nominated by the president. To serve on the Supreme Court. It's a great honor. It's a mark of distinction. A great opportunity to serve your country. You should not be dragged into a court into a hearing into the chambers. And be maligned. Insulted. And tourney part for partisan favor. Joe Biden did that to Clarence Thomas in a way that it has never been done since. They're going to try to do that to Amy Cockney Barrett. In fact, I'd be shocked. If a single Catholic votes for Joe Biden he could say I'm Catholic. I'm Kathleen. Your party is destroying this woman and calling her radical. For being Catholic. Then again, I'm surprised a single Jew could vote for them. I'm surprised a single black person could vote for them. I'm surprised.

"Leads quote unquote know which forced to use Thomas Claims Margaret Bush Wilson Chair of the NWPP National Board of directors pillar of the black community in Saint Louis and attorney. Who helped get Supreme Court to Strike Down Restrictive Covenant once told him because leads have the skills and cultural capital to represent the race to put African Americans in the best possible light to white people, they see themselves as the public face in natural leaders of the black community, and what's funny, but that is the one thing we always say about we them blue check black people now because. Blue check black people, but on this podcast we always say a lot of black people. I'm ready they. They think. They're additioning for white people to be the managers of black people. And then I read this day I'm only should exacting Sam this podcast do I. Think Clarence Thomas. and there was more stuff. entitled back to W. E B The wind and W E B The world says something similar this approval of w. e B Dubois, which is. This leaves the massive, trained, uncultured, colorful, and even trained, but ill manner people in groups, impoverished workers of whom this upper-class of cutting Americans are ashamed. They are shamed both indirectly and directly just as any richer or better sustained group in a nation's ashamed of those less fortunate, and withdraw skirts from touching them, but more than that. Because the UPPERCUT, a group is desperately afraid of being represented before American rights by lower group or being mistaken for them or being treated as though they were part of it. They are appreciative stream of effort to avoid. Contact with the poorest classes of Negro, so it's kind of like Clarence. Thomas is kind of in the middle of a lot of popular blackout. Whether's from W, e B. Dubois or things that people like me. In other black people talk about on twitter today. So, you know it's interesting I hadn't heard this phrase blue check black pumps. Are It just it's really funny. Yeah, what's funny is not now for the most funny is I, think it started in the black community at least online and now I see why people using white people are complaining about Blue White People. Too But so you know. This is also kind of an interesting experience. I've had in this book. Is that I had a lot of African? American readers have said kind of what you've said a couple times you know it's like wow, I kind of agree with Qantas Thomas or boy, he sounds so much like my father. My grandfather and I think it's you know it's one of these..

I figured murder, Jones or nation. It wasn't the nation but but you're right. It was kind of more liberal publication I. I can't remember myself. Maybe. It doesn't even exist yes, anymore, actually but but no I mean. Yeah, the had. None Is GonNa, say it just went over. Really badly, and I feel like a lot of times. liberals kind of think there immune to our own racism or yeah, being called. Yeah, no and I it goes far beyond all this Oh you know one of the things I'm struck by particularly in the last. You know I don't know how period you know. A lot of liberals say we have to hear black voices, black voices, and nobody is very interested in hearing from Clarence. Thomas now I will say you know just because you want to hear from black voices. It doesn't mean you have to hear every black voice, but he does happen to be the most power full black person in the United States today. And so I've oftentimes gotten the question. Why would you read a book that Clarence? Thomas what? What significance is he? It's an odd question to me because nobody would ever say. Why would you write a book about Neal Gorsuch or why would you write a book about John Roberts or some other Supreme Court justice? They only say about Clarence Thomas. And a great point. Yeah, it's it's striking to me. When when would it ever be? When would you ever questioned the need for a biography legal analysis of a Supreme Court justice who I might add rights more opinions than any other justice in any given year number one has now written over seven hundred opinions number two number three has been consistently one of the pacesetters of throwing down doctrines that initially people bridal at and then come to accept as true, so he was the very first person just to give an example to suggest in supreme. Court opinion that the Second Amendment, the right. Right to bear arms was a personal individual right prior to that, everybody said it was kind of something for state militias, and he was the first and now that's settled you know a barack. Obama. said the right to bear arms is a personal right will that was Clarence Thomas who I said that on the core of the modern court due that I noticed right? Is You say reputation that he has with you? Take him seriously, but if you look on twitter, his his you know by back, the legal nurse policy. Wonk people will quote or talk about I sometimes even. Liberals were like praise in one of the sense like how great or interesting or engaging his opinion opinion was even if they disagree with, it tends to be the most talked about opinion or dissent, but. How many times his opinions of being the most talked about one, it never last as far as staying in people's mind that maybe we should change our assessment of him as it becomes an exception each time how engaging or a noteworthy or quotable his opinion. Was Yeah in fact I mean. I've been dealing with this for for many years. And one thing I noticed I mentioned to you before, but he was discussing the black codes and reconstruction, and it was a case that think about. Whether or not use of debt in in punishment or something like that. I can't remember the specifics of the case, so he wrote this opinion and Ruth Bader Ginsburg ulcer road opinion where she talked about the black codes and everybody's like Oh the group Baiter Ginsburg you know she talks about the reconstruction. Whatever now to be honest with you..

The history of slavery is very important, and the battle over slavery is really really important. Thomas and informs a lot of his jurisprudence. Even on things the seem to have nothing to do with it, so his campaign finance jurisprudence will make mention of the fact and talk about the fact that kind.

But I was reading quite a bit of the afro-pessimists, letter, literature when I was writing this and I had originally intended to engage more with that in just decided not to and and but I found an awful lot of stuff in in Wilkerson.
