Could Trump Be Worse the Second Time Around?
"It's not, it's a little more nuanced than that, but I do think you don't credit evangelicals generally with being smart about their vote. My whole view of the evangelical affair with Trump is that the relentless ascendancy of secularism drove evangelicals into his arm and that that election was really about the Supreme Court. And that evangelicals were quite smart to go with Trump after he published his list, and they ended up with justice, Gorsuch justice, Kavanaugh, and justice Amy Coney Barrett, and that was a good deal for evangelicals concerned about freedom of worship. Response I understand all that, I, you know, my perspective was at the time and remains that he was that Trump was pretty clear about his disregard for the constitution for history for sort of the architecture of our democracy. He made that pretty clear in his comments in different ways. And I think he proved that his words meant something when it came to January 6th. So I think, you know, sure, you got a Supreme Court that you like, and we came to a constitutional crisis where we came closer than I and many others would have liked to. Okay, tangent. Tangent, John. If Mike Pence had done the wrong thing and put aside the ballots, what do you think would have happened? It wasn't a constitutional crisis. It was a riot, and it was dangerous, and I hope they're all prosecuted who broke in, but I've had this argument with Liz Cheney. What do you think would happen if Mike Pence had bought it? Well, we don't know what would have happened. I think there's another scenario where they delay it where lawmakers are killed, where they can't get enough lawmakers to actually certify the election. And I think there was talk, I think, by general milley, of concerns about Trump, you know, declaring martial law or some excuse to take military control of the country. We don't have evidence that I think John Roberts would have gotten the court together and they would have declared count the votes in about 24 hours. Maybe not that long. And they would add a Nixon versus the United States 9 zero vote and we weren't close to a constitutional crisis. In fact, my biggest argument with you about your book is you don't actually have a lot of faith that evangelicals believe in the constitution and that there are concerns about the secularization of the society are overstated when in fact I spend a lot of time talking to the alliance defending freedom, they're out there every day combating anti Christian bigotry. I mean, it's real. I've been reporting on this since 1992. It's a constant, secularization, advance that has triggered a lot of the response that you deal with, although covenant life church is different. That's why I'm trying to, that's a very different part of the general evangelical world, isn't it? You know, in some respects, coming to life was not very political. It wasn't involved with things like alliance defending freedom. And you know, I have no problem with people doing those things in through the system that we have. But I think going back to the point about January 6th, were we at the point of a coup, we don't know the point my point is we were way too close for my comfort level and we're now at a point where the same guy is potentially going to be the Republican nominee again. And if he brought us that close last time, my concern is where do we go from here if he's president again?

How Democrats and the Left Use Race and COVID
"You got a fast forward to 2018. Who was there really weird hero that they poured money into? Stacey Abrams. Why? All she talked about was voting rights. That was her, that was her obsession. And this is why James work with critical race theory. It all intersects, and that's a very important word on the left, right? How were they able to get this done? Two things. Race and COVID. So race will black people need to be able to have a 30 day window to vote. So you got to send them all ballots at Stacey Abrams suit. Stacey Abrams suit, who is a representative of those lawsuits, Mark alliance. From Perkins cooey, who's Mark Elias, the original architect of the Russian dossier. He's now the number one most funded person on the left. But remember, this is all because Donald Trump snuck up on them in 16. They thought their preexisting infrastructure was impenetrable and this guy shocked the world. And basically they said to themselves, never again. We don't care the cost. We don't care the unethical nature we're never going to let this happen again because he really threw a boomerang into all I mean from Amy Coney Barrett to Kavanaugh to Gorsuch to embassy to Jerusalem to southern border. It's just a lot of stuff that they're still working to basically move back. I can't state that enough. So anyway, without going too deep into this, but I think it's interesting they changed their whole game where they realized candidate quality doesn't matter, okay? It doesn't matter if it's kind of some bumbling idiot. John fetterman, Katie Hobbs, Joe Biden as an example, right? We're going to perfect the game.

The Left Is Very Bitter About the SCOTUS Dobbs Decision...
"The left is very bitter about the Supreme Court's Dobbs decision overruling roe versus wade. And they're trying to do whatever they can in a desperate, angry way to strike out, to lash out in every direction. Now, the Biden DoJ is arresting pro lifers, accusing them of violating the so called face act, the face act basically by obstructing or by blocking access to abortion clinics. Again, the left does this all the time. They do this on campus. They do it elsewhere. They are either not arrested or they are arrested and released immediately, but these pro lifers are facing long prison terms. So this is the deep inequity of injustice, the deep inequity of our society, and here we see the left in a different way trying to go after justices. Now, we've seen how they have protested at their homes. They've chased them out of restaurants, but now they're trying to get their books canceled. Wow, this shows the extent of it. So Amy Coney Barrett has a book contract with penguin random. This is Random House merger with penguin books. And it's apparently $2 million book advance for Amy Coney Barrett to tell her story and to lay out her judicial philosophy. And but there is a revolt in the publishing world. Several hundred, it turns out the number originally was a couple of hundred now it's over 600 publishing industry staffers. By the way, not just from Penguin Random House, but from all kinds of other publishers, Simon and Schuster, and Harper Collins, McMillan, they've all written a joint letter. Basically asking the publishing house not to publish Amy Coney Barrett's book to cancel the book.

Staffers Call for Cancellation of Amy Coney Barrett's Book Deal
"Petition emerges to cancel Amy Coney Barrett's book deal. This is from daily mail, more than 470 members of the writing publishing and literary community have signed a petition opposing Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett's upcoming book. A Supreme Court Justice should not be published. Get it? The better educated you are, the more likely you are to suppress freedom. To loathe everything good that this country stands for. To be so arrogant is to think that what you believe in is the only thing that can be stated. This thing gets worse. I want you to hear the convoluted way in which they think that they're for free speech, but they want Amy Coney Brian's by Barrett. Sorry, Amy Coney Barrett's book suppressed. The damning petition was signed by various members of the literary community, I love it. Community whenever I see that word, I have a feeling to something totalitarian is taking place.

He answered all their questions. They just all knew his lie about him. But and I'd like to see more of from Amy Coney Barrett. I think Kavanaugh is perhaps a little more moderate, but give him time.

Florida Governor Sends Migrants to Martha's Vineyard
"It started out a few weeks, a few months ago. As governor Abbott says, I'm going to take some busloads of migrants and send them to muriel Bowser's front doorstep there in D.C. to Eric Adams in New York that went well. And then to Lori Lightfoot's neighborhood in Chicago, where she promptly schlepped them over into conservative suburbs with Republican mayors. Cry more, cry more. And then Ron DeSantis, I guess day before yesterday, came up with the idea in Florida that says, let's have areas right there on screen and Salem news channel. Watch the entire proceeding zero in the Salem news channel. Let's take some migrants and let's send them to Martha's Vineyard. And then I can imagine governor Abbott there, the governor's mansion in Austin saying, hold my beer, I am now going to send a couple of bus loads to observatory circle in Washington, two Kamala Harris house. Now, this is an important distinction.

And whether it's a national issue or a local issue, I am the guy who's always said in terms of protest, stay away from people's homes. Go to their offices, their workplaces, stay away from people's private homes. Ha ha. They're in lies the meaningful adjective because observatory circle is not a private home. That's

We Must Acknowledge Trump's Role in the Overturning of Roe v. Wade

And I know everyone has different opinions of this individual, but this is a fact, and you don't have to like one about to say. You don't have to like it, but if you like babies and you like the unborn, the misses a fact. How do I put this? Someone who lived a colorful life from New York City, who was once pro choice himself who once supported Planned Parenthood, God had a call on his life. Or maybe just one or two or three reasons. But to go down a golden escalator and win an election, he was not supposed to win. And again, you don't have to like the guy. I'm not saying you have to like it. It's a fact of life that God can use anybody for any reason. And he did a highly suspicious thing. He actually did what he said he was going to do. I know we're not used to that. Makes us all very freaked out, right? And we got Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. And I want to say, Kavanaugh's ruling on immigration was somewhat disappointing, but if you survive an assassination attempt on your family and you still rule correctly on roe V wade, that's worthy of appreciation and applause. It really is. That's courage. So it's a big moment for the church. We must now step into this and help the people that need our help and see this as a great

Article III Project's Mike Davis on the Transformation of SCOTUS
"With us right now is Mike Davis formerly chief counsel for nominations for the U.S. Senate committee on the judiciary and a law clerk formerly and also helped justice Gorsuch, get on the U.S. Supreme Court, Mike, welcome back to the program. Thank you for having me, Charlie. I always love when you do our interviews, you have that beautiful picture behind you. It's just, it's incredible. So Washington crossing the Delaware if I'm not mistaken. It is, yeah, and I've big, big, big admirer of that painting and what it actually means. So Mike ten years ago, I got my start in politics and I was pro life then as I am now, but I was told by people that roe versus wade would never be overturned. Ten years ago, justice Scalia was lamenting that the court had gone off the rails. What happened in a decade, where we went from a court that was insane and dominated by Sotomayor and Kagan and upheld ObamaCare is merely a tax, even though we know simply that that was an insane decision. We're ten years later, we now have restored constitutional sanity. What do you attribute the success to? I attributed this success to president Donald J Trump and Senate Republicans. President Trump in 2016 won an upset victory against Hillary Clinton in big part because he promised he would appoint constitutionalist Supreme Court Justices and federal judges who would follow the law instead of rewrite the law and what we saw with this Dobbs decision coming out was the culmination of that. It was because president Trump transformed the 5 to four John Roberts court to the 5 to four clarence Thomas court with the appointments of justices, Gorsuch, my former boss, justice Kavanaugh, who I helped lead through the Senate confirmation and then justice Amy Coney Barrett. So it is a fundamental transformation of the federal judiciary back to its constitutionalist origins, what is supposed to be before the liberals hijack the Supreme Court nearly 90 years

Pro-Choice Protesters Descend on Justice Coney Barrett's Home
"I want to continue to talk about this a portion thing and I'm not going to stay on it long, but they're showing up to Amy Coni Barrett's house to protest her about abortions. And this is my problem with that. I believe that you should not be able to protest in front of a Supreme Court Justice's house. You could protest on a public thoroughfare somewhere else. But when you go to someone's house, you have now made it personal. You are now in threatening intimidating them to make decisions. They should be able to live and exist in their own home peacefully. You can protest them when they Capitol Hill. You can protest them when they're at work and official capacity in their business. You should not be able to go to the homes of Supreme Court Justices. You should not be able to do that.

House Dems Delay Voting for Increased Security for SCOTUS Justices

There are statutes on the books that protect federal judges from that kind of coercion and intimidation and threats. The very presence. How'd you like to have 200 lunatics on your lawn, screaming at you with a bullhorn? Brett Kavanaugh's got young children, Amy Coney Barrett has young children. The left wants this.

Radical Left Organizations Encourage the Targeting of SCOTUS Homes
"Yesterday we talked about the group rise up for abortion, which is really just a front for a shadowy revolutionary Communist Party group. A Maoist organization founded in the 60s by bob, avakian. Now, interestingly enough, some on the left don't like that group because they call it a cult. Which seems very apropos. Now, another group that's actually getting probably more attention because they were the ones that actually doxxed the 5 out of the 6 conservative justices, Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, is a group called Ruth sent us. Ruth sent us is asking activists to target Supreme Court Justices who may overturn roe V roe V wade with demonstrations at their private homes. Now, can we just state it? As a simple, clean fact here that you should not protest at private homes. You should not confront or get in their faces as Maxine water says, when people are out in public with their families, this is not appropriate. If you don't like somebody, you vote them out of office. If you don't like somebody, you can go on Twitter and say something mean and nasty to them. That's fine. And there might actually be free speech on Twitter moving forward with Elon Musk taking down. You do not, and I repeat, again, do not protest at private homes. I think it's just important to say that it's idiotic. It's stupid. If you're a conservative and you're considering protesting in front of, I don't know, justice Kagan's house because you think it's respect that she or one of her clerks were the leaker. Don't do it. Stop. It looks bad.

Matt Whitaker Discusses the SCOTUS Roe v Wade Debate
"We spent 50 years with a court that has now been just bombarded with an issue that they take up. Maybe in the last 50 years, I took up three to four times. That's it. Yeah, and you're so right. Supreme Court politics have always fascinated me because when a justice is nominated, you immediately go to what have they said on life. What have they written on life? All those types of questions. And it really, to your point, ignores a lot of the other qualifications that you would look for to Supreme Court Justice. I think this is one of Trump's greatest legacies that he was able because in his unique way you know him, I know him. And his unique way, he was able to vet out, you know, people that were really conservatives. And, you know, I've had my complaints about Kavanaugh and Gorsuch, especially. I think Amy Coney Barrett is probably the ideal Supreme Court Justice out of those three that Trump appointed. But, you know, I mean, obviously, I was around in the Bush administration as well. And I was promised that John Roberts was a conservative. And you know, I mean, I still kind of scratch my head on that whole deal because I knew that a guy with his kind of pedigree and experience, you know, sort of inside the beltway, you know, institutionalist. It was going to be very dangerous. And it's proving exactly that. I mean, if you look, if you believe the leaked document, when I know we're going to talk about leakers and liars, but if you believe this leaked draft opinion, you know, Roberts is not in the majority. And that should tell, you know, I mean, I look at life as a litmus test for conservatism, you know? Somebody once told me on the campaign trail when I was a young candidate for state treasure in Iowa that, you know, I know that if they're right on life, they're going to be right on the economic issues as well.

Unpacking 'The Supreme Leak' and the End of Roe
"Reported that the Supreme Court was poised to decide that roe versus wade was going to be overturned. Now this is an unprecedented development because Politico received a leak. Now we're used to leaks in Washington, D.C., leaks happen all the time in leakers are rarely ever held accountable unless the leakers of course are leaking on Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. And so what appears to be a Supreme Court Justice clerk will get into that later in this program of who we think it is. They leaked a draft of the decision composed and written by Samuel Alito by justice Alito. Now the significance of this is, is that the decision is not done yet, is that the justices meet right after they hear oral arguments, they start to draft opinions, and the final decision, the final vote will be done based on how the opinion is written. And so based on the draft that looks like Amy Coney Barrett, clarence Thomas, justice Gorsuch, justice Alito, and justice Kavanaugh, 5 of them are going to vote against the four would be briar Sotomayor Kagan and Roberts saying that roe versus wade will be overturned. Now mind you. We'll get into the technical aspect of this. Does not mean that abortion will be outlawed as much as I'd like to see that happen.

I went a i went for like 'cause we lived very close to there when i was in the house in brooklyn in red hook so i went when i was on the show on the real world and then i went with a boyfriend and every time it felt like i was in the movie. Big or something. I felt like i was in sometimes. Because there were actual cameras following me right like acting the whole time like in a little sundress and like taking pictures and like fun. House mir like yeah. Yeah that was like. I liked the be roll that they showed the the p what a great place for people watching. It appears like it checks all types of people and even the workers you know they're just characters and yes and then you have the people that have lived there for like seventy years and they hang out on the benches and it just seems really interesting but years you get different kinds of crowds which is fun. Hey stumbled child. Which is the tourists and the people who are there who are like the teenagers who are after school. Like when it's november in your there right just like cold and coney. Island is kind of spooky. Yeah and more like a ghost town. Yes the guys that. They focused on for the documentaries of father and son and i think they were like the fifth generation or something crazy and Really it was a story about that relationship between the father inside and like sort of working for your parents and how that can be weird. Because they're your boss and your parent and it was very catching the cradle. Because apparently the dad was like always away at coney island or one of their other places. You know not a good dad. You could see like it's like maybe having affairs kind of dad. Oh yeah they talk about it. Oh i guess that that's crazy because the the dad's away a lot annie's at this job where he's like the man of i could see paints an image and just the vibe. I feel like. I can pick that up from coney island seems a little illinois easy sleazy and it wouldn't surprise me that that energy is around all people involved in that..

"So it's not clear to me if her concurrence really mattered or whether she was kind of playing everybody and manage to help craft narrative in classic john roberts style to make her conservatism. Seemed like centrism. Part of my ongoing beef with supreme court coverage is it is so personality driven the personalities of the justices and whether that was the cultivar. Bg raid the tote bag indication of how we think about feminism and progressive activism or the attempt on the right to co-opt the cult of rv g. for justice barrett. I think part of the retired justice briar thing again puts way too much importance on individuals as opposed to systemic change. Right like things that you can do. That are probably in the long term if this is indeed a long game decades long game as you point out much more effective than harassing individual jurists off the court but i think part of the problem also is that it allied is really complicated questions like voting and so maybe let's end on voting only because all the focus on Barrett and cavanaugh. Are these centrists after all. I think distract so profoundly from what just happened to voting rates. And just to teed it up i will say this is another thing that was happening and the shadow docket long before we got to burn vich. We were seeing a orders that were changing really really changing doctrinal positions. They didn't necessarily command five oats and change the outcome of the twenty twenty election but we were seeing faints at fundamentally. Changing how states can oversee their own elections happening on the shadow docket and then the term ends with i think to incredibly consequential decisions both six three by the way that really in a systems way that cannot be lashed to anyone justice or their personality or their face on a t. Shirt really really. I think imperils the project of democracy right absolutely. You've got all six justices in berna vich. Dnc the big case of the term. Really gutting the voting rights act and sort of neutering this decades old law that prohibits any voting restriction that results in disproportionate disenfranchisement of racial minorities. So the six conservative justices take this revolutionary law. That was supposed to stamp out. The last vestiges of jim crow and prevent states from passing any kind of voter suppression measure that has a disparate impact on racial minorities and turns it into nothing. Right flattens this. Law and demure symbolism creates this multi factor test that has no relationship to the text of the law and just manipulates it to ensure that lower courts will uphold essentially all restrictions on the franchise under what remains of the voting rights act and barrett joined that opinion in full and kavanagh joined that opinion in full. They didn't write anything else. They didn't have any concerns or qualifications and yet despite casting the fifth and sixth votes they got almost no attention right. That was not. Oh look at these. Two justices dragging the court far to the right. It was an aberration in an otherwise agreeable term which strikes me as a fundamentally wrong way to think about a decision that constitutes an attack on the one right that is preservative of all other rights. Yeah and i think. I think that very last thing you said is the thing that i would ask listeners. To take away from this conversation..

"A few months ago. I was talking to mary. Ziglar about amy. Coney barrett's mary's fantastic professor of law at florida state university. She covers abortion law and abortion history and she told me that she thinks amy coney barrett wants to be perceived as a serious intellectual that amy conybeare doesn't want to be perceived as sort of instrumental transactional votes dot republicans sort of crammed onto the court at the last minute to further their agenda that she is a really brilliant person who wants to be perceived as an independent neutral thoughtful 'institutionalised and for that reason she wasn't going to be in a rush to affect her own agenda which would include probably ending the right to an abortion. Now mary send out to me just a few weeks before. The supreme court took up a case that is a direct challenge to roe versus wade which the court will hear next term and may well use to end the constitutional right to abortion with a makoni. Barrett's vote as potentially decisive one. But i still think that. Mary was onto something there. And this is really informed my own view. I do think that barrick cares about how she perceived unlike somebody like. Sam alito neal gorsuch. Who truly do not care how the press and the public think about them. I do think that barrett wants to be seen as kind of professorial thoughtful. Maybe under but quietly brilliant jurist. I don't know though if that's the person we've seen in action over the last nine months on the bench. And i'm very curious what you think i do. Think that what was seen as resounding statesmanship and centrism was barrett's decision to write a concurrence in what ended up being a nine zero decision. That looked as though. Hey the courts not making any definitive claims about this balancing of religious liberty on the one hand civil rights on the other. It looked like that was happening. And what barrett got feted for was the centrist moderate concurrence. She wrote saying. I'm not going to overturn a decades old president. That's what she did. She got feted as you've been saying throughout for not doing the thing that people thought she was going to do and then instead of saying well. Okay as you're saying why was that strategic and be. Did she effectively do that. In the shadow docket anyway in the cova places. We're just sitting here saying man. She's no different from our bg. And i think that is a function of as we've said from the beginning you know the way we do confirmation hearings unfortunately on both sides is a lot of sort of sky is falling projections about what's going to happen. And when that doesn't materialize it's like. Hey maybe she really is for the adoptive same sex parents in this case which is like absolutely materially not true but i think that there is a very very cartoonish sense still going into next term when abortion as you say is on the chopping blog that if amy conybeare it doesn't right. The sentence roe v wade is overturned. She will have been a moderate. And that's just the way we construct the narrative around the court..

"What the rule was. We just saw the rule change as you said Now any state or municipality that puts into an effect a lockdown order in an existential global pandemic if they make an exemption for nail salons or bike shops the exemption goes to churches to and that is profoundly without getting into the weeds of employment division and religious liberty cases but i think it is a profound up ending of how religious liberty has been analyzed at the court and it happened with nobody noticing and a lot of what happened in the shadows. This year was so so so consequential in profound and because it just slipped out in late night orders. The press didn't necessarily give it the attention it needed and the court kind of ignored it when the court analyzed fulton. They act as though they hadn't already fundamentally altered the rules of religious liberty and radically altering those rules in shadow docket. Five to four decision is not something a moderate would do right so that alone. That data point alone should be proof enough to put to bed. The canard that amy conybeare it is a moderate. No no moderate no judge with a genuine moderate bent would ever manipulate a courts rules. Philly break a courts rules to affect such a radical shift and yet that's what barrett did and we know she was the fifth vote here because even chief justice roberts who's genuinely good friend to religious freedom and even religious exemptions. He dissented from from tannin from the decision. We're talking about And i noticed in so many of these end of the term up pieces when journalists were giving their breakdown of how divided the court was and how unanimous the court was excluded shadow docket decisions so they say oh there were so few five to four decisions but that's only in the normal cases. These shadow daca cases were quite frequently five to four. But because they aren't being factored into the stats. Nobody notices them and the end of term rapa pieces create the false impression the false narrative that the court is more unanimous and more in agreement on major major issues than it actually is. So we're going to take a break here but if you like what you're hearing and you wanna hear more from dalia and myself on another topic checkout our sleep.

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

It notoriously replaced ruth bader ginsburg on the court solidifying a six to three conservative majority. And today we'll be talking about what impacts her votes had on the cases that the court decided and also the case is that the court chose not to decide. You know. I'm sitting with two things and and it's sort of interesting to me. One last october november. You and i were running around houses on fire houses on fire. She's going to do all these dreadful things and to now. We're sitting in the midst of a raft of mainstream media views that barrett turned out to really moderate intemperate and centrists and maybe not all that different from our bg. After all so maybe just in terms of table setting where we wrong then or are we wrong now. I don't think we're wrong at all. Let's recall at justice barrett. Then judge barrett's confirmation hearings. The senate democrats chose to make it about the affordable care act and so what we saw right was days and days and days of senate democrats holding up. You know huge posters of children who were going to be thrown off their health insurance because of justice barrett and that didn't materialize for reasons. We're gonna talk about in a minute. The affordable care act was not struck down. But i do think there is this problem with hindsight and foresight in other words. The choice to say. We're going to litigate amy.

Here it will stay dc but it will be douglas commonwealth instead of the district of columbia as proud washingtonian. I feel it's important to both sort of flaunt my support for statehood. But also normalize the idea of statehood because a lot of republicans. I think exploits the fact that we're also used to a fifty star flag by the way there's a fifty one star flag flying outside my house right now they say oh how could it possibly be a state it sounds so weird douglas commonwealth who couldn't even pronounce that well i can and i'm proud to show it off on my dog walks around the neighborhood and i got this shirt from a company called dc statehood gifts in apparel. The name is what it is. They've got a ton of stuff online. That's all in keeping with the statehoods theme. And i definitely encourage everyone to go normalize douglas commonwealth which will be our fifty. I mark if there's a through line here it has to be me walking around in my gerrymander. Sucks by resistance by design and you walking around in your in your dc statehood t shirt. I think maybe the through line here is friends. Purchase apparel that makes people ask hard questions. About what the hell you're.

"Bb king and more join them and relive joyous celebration of black and latte next culture now playing in theaters and on hulu so dolly. Let's talk about that confirmation. Hearing back in october a somewhat traumatic time justice. Ginsburg just died. The election was right around the corner. And as you noted democrats chose to make it all about the affordable care act and say well if this individual is confirmed she could take away healthcare from tens of millions of people including all of these wonderful children and individuals who are so deserving of healthcare and. I'm curious looking back now. What what do you make of that. Strategy of that introduction of amy conybeare it to the world by democrats yeah. I've been really thinking about that mark. And i think in some sense. It goes to that predictive foresight and hindsight in other words. The democrats made a choice. They didn't quite know how to attack judge barrett. They knew we should note that from her confirmation hearings for her job at the seventh circuit. The federal appeals court where she had sat for three years. They couldn't touch a lot of the issues that were at the heart of what they were really worried about right. Which is her religious views and what she's written about the right to abortion generally but also just things that surfaced during the confirmation hearings about how early and often She was saying things like life begins at conception and how really involved she was both in a judicial project to say. That story decisive or president just doesn't matter so there's that that she just doesn't have a lot of qualms about reversing cases so they weren't willing to talk about how she thought about precedent also she. She wouldn't answer. They weren't really willing to say. How does your view about reproductive freedom of and reproductive rights braid into the way you think about your job as a jurist. She had explicitly written about that right. We know that she has put that into evidence. Before dem's didn't wanna touch that either and that combined with the fact that she simply wouldn't answer questions questions like very fundamental questions about. Can the president stop the election fundamental questions about things that totally orthogonal all to her own job as a justice. And so i think all of that men that dem's were sort of boxed in that they chose to make this about the affordable care act because they wanted it to be a kitchen table objection to bear it that everybody could understand. It's not complicated. I don't have to explain. Section two of the voting rights act. I can just say she's taking your healthcare away. But in the end the fact that that didn't materialize the fact that she happily signed on with the seven to two majority. That kicked away the affordable. Care act case. I think made the dams look a little dumb you. I think it's worth noting that dem's did touch the religion issue during barrett's confirmation hearing to the seventh circuit to the lower court and it was like an electric fence and they got electrified. Dianne feinstein said the dogma lives loudly within you and Celebrity of the right was born. There were mugs and shirts and headbands. You could buy that said. The dog lives within you. She became a makoni. Barrett became a kind of hero to the right because she was supposedly persecuted for her religious beliefs. For belonging to a religious organization called people of praise. Some commentators ask questions about and immediately the white house and its allies framed. all of that as anti-catholic animus right until a few years later by the time she was there for a job interview for the supreme court. Democrats had been so scarred by that. I think that they really would not touch it with a ten foot pole as you noted and that did leave them boxed in and i guess they made the choice. Let's talk about healthcare because like you said it's not complicated and also it doesn't raise these fraud issues. The way that abortion reproductive freedom does we don't have to get into the whole question of anti-catholic annemasse and no one will be able to accuse us of hating her because she's catholic. Of course conservatives did still accuse democrats of hating her because she's cop but that's just completely unavoidable. Let's put a name on that. That was josh. Holly setting up the confirmation hearings to say democrats are going to ask about griswold versus connecticut. And that's a dog whistle about how much they hate. Religious people right that was explicitly shot across the bow. And what holly did. I think was scummy but i think it was also relatively canny because it worked and scared democrats away from asking hard questions so all they asked about with healthcare and i guess we should get into the case this term essentially this was a i think a really frivolous ridiculous case where the state of texas joined by a bunch of other conservative states argued that the entire affordable care act became unconstitutional after congress zeroed out the penalty for people who don't purchase health insurance. We don't need to get into the details. Because i think just. A brief description illustrates why. It's such a nutty theory. And i will say at the time. I was harshly critical of democrats for seizing on this case. Because i said look this is a ridiculous case. And the mere fact that total partisan hacks in the lower courts have embraced texas. Theory does not mean that this is going to get five votes on the supreme court and my fear was she would say okay. This is too nutty for me. I'm just gonna kick this case to the road. And then republicans would jump up dance around and say hey democrats you accuse this woman as being out to kill the affordable care act but guess what she had the opportunity and she didn't so she must be moderates and that just framing feels totally wrong to me. But it's the inevitable result of democrats using the case as the litmus test for any coney barrett's radical nece this term..

"Welcome to the waves slates podcast about gender feminism and the supreme court every episode. You get a new era feminists to talk about the thing. We can't get off our minds and today you've got me. Marc joseph stern a staff writer for sleep covering courts in the law and me die elliptic. I am senior editor at slate. And i cover the courts today. We're talking about amy. Coney barrett's first term which just wrapped up this month just as bear. It notoriously replaced ruth bader ginsburg on the court solidifying a six to three conservative majority. And today we'll be talking about what impacts her votes had on the cases that the court decided and also the case is that the court chose not to decide. You know. I'm sitting with two things and and it's sort of interesting to me. One last october november. You and i were running around houses on fire houses on fire. She's going to do all these dreadful things and to now. We're sitting in the midst of a raft of mainstream media views that barrett turned out to really moderate intemperate and centrists and maybe not all that different from our bg. After all so maybe just in terms of table setting where we wrong then or are we wrong now. I don't think we're wrong at all. Let's recall at justice barrett than judge. barrett's confirmation hearings. The senate democrats chose to make it about the affordable care act and so what we saw right was days and days and days of senate democrats holding up. You know huge posters of children who were going to be thrown off their health insurance because of justice barrett and that didn't materialize for reasons. We're gonna talk about in a minute. The affordable care act was not struck down. But i do think there is this problem with hindsight and foresight in other words. The choice to say. We're going to litigate amy. Coney barrett's possible impact on the court before she's on the court really does think a clued. What the real conversation was and two. We spend a lot of time talking about roe and it didn't materialize because there was no abortion giving on the took it because i just think the point. Let's make this as a sort of leaping off point a lot of the things that are allowing people to say right now. Look how shockingly temperate and moderate and centrist justice barrett is our because either the kinds of things. We've been worried about all along barrett on guns barrett on abortion barrett on dismantling. The administrative state didn't really happen this year. Oh by the way they might happen next year and to because some of the things that we used as templates amy coney barrett is gunning for health. Insurance actually didn't happen. Is that fair. I think so absolutely. I think it's important to step back and say that. She has been on the bench for about nine months right. She may well be at the supreme court for the next thirty years and so the fact that we are all racing to take in a few data bytes and conclude that she is one way or another. That is our problem. That is our desire to craft a narrative right out of the gate. She has decades to build her legacy and to await the big cases to come before her. She doesn't need to reach out and grab every single one and so the fact that she had a somewhat limited buffet of options. This term does not mean that in the future she will not swing far to the right and drag the court with her so. I'm very glad that you teed that up for us. And i really am looking forward to getting into it but before we do. We have a brief word from our sponsors..

"High school so i was a match for every five. I had to go against at lincoln because they didn't know how defend that at the time Meanwhile like you're playing with staffs and steph was the guy that year he became the like. Everyone knew news new staff book. What was your relationship like while you were getting better and become an your own right. And he was on this kind of superstardom path. Oh but i mean steph was like in high school. I was saying highschool one hundred percent supportive. Like you know especially like my first year when i was coming on my show so I was playing with a new team. Called the broncos. The new york city broncos. So that's like the b or c division of a youth programs. And you know in new york. So i had a couple of tournaments our in Ohio and i had a tournament out in virginia. And that was the first time i saw a and i was like this did so i. I had good towards out there. So we're was getting back at you. Know the yoda's kid like djamil. Your cousin is killing. So when steph heard that like him in my coach got together and they said no. You're not playing with the broncos mall you come with us to the bills so ever since then. I started playing with the galileo with steph. Like he was like you know he was bringing me along with him so every big time tournament that he played in in new york go to hoops or whatever i was right with them five star. You know what. I'm saying right there with him right there with them like you know he was he was. He was really supportive at that time. You know for my development lookout Who's on the couch is senior year. Shammgod guard talking clock Eric harris steph She move evans gary saunders. Oh larry larry. Abney larry adnia. He's with a. He's assistant coach with the clippers. Now I think my blunt played played a few games with us like we had a squad. We haven't lose to malone go alone. Didn't you guys lose. Till i. I must say like the dallas team or something in vegas. I just remember that there. There was like no way anyone who's going to beat you and you guys played like an early morning game against the dallas got. Beat yes yes. And that was makes you a bassin's team right. Yes yes we call them plastic man. That was team meal. I'll give you the other side to it right. Here's an everyday said about new about about like takao jets. Don't play them at night. If you can play them in the morning you play the night. Got no shot. Yeah we were. Yeah you well. Doug i'm five on the only person that got some rest was probably steph. Here's here's the only professional that was on the team value. Why did you choose providence. After that game against when we played against dallas. Yeah that's when Bobby gonzalez recruited me. That's when he was like that's when they gave me the offer. Because sometimes like like i can hang out late in do whatever at night and i can wake up because my body was kind of accustomed to it right so that game i just i was. I was doing the same thing. Like like rebound bringing the ball court and making certain passes in certain sites. Like i've played a totally different way with the gauchos. Then that lincoln. I'll play more like a small forward power forward with the gauchos and lincoln. I would just stuck to the five. 'cause i was the biggest guy there and yeah but The reason why i chose providence is because you know every school in a country that was including steph to get staff there was gonna including the packers though i'm talking about syracuse georgia tech. Ucla every school. It was like well. We're him in there too. If you come you know basically yes. So that wasn't gonna work right Steph stuff pops was like no you need to get out of steph shadow and do your own thing and you know my parents the brahmins. Everybody felt the same way. So it boiled down to two schools right. I had you wanna recruit me. They wouldn't want to be Take monroe spot and then my coach like no. He's not a for five. He's just forced to play this position at lincoln. He's he's he's he's a legit small forward. So and i think that's when calipari was in Jim beano Jen i know what's name building. Oh yeah bill bain. Oh yeah yeah. So there were there so that didn't work out and then narrowed down to school was right so rutgers university in providence college so i went on my college visits so my first college visit was Add official college visit at rutgers university. And you know my parents you know. They were heavily involved Province heavily involved so my host was charles jones. So we you know we brooklyn guys. You know what we like to do. So he He was my host And i went talk couple. I went to a practice i went. I sorta facility. And then at night he said five. I got you then. He showed me around campus. And then i just had a ball for like that. I just i had a great khan. I thought i was in coney island with a bunch of intellectual people so And when i get home to my my parent's house the brabham is they said how visit. Oh my god it was great. I had the best time i like. I'm going to rutgers university. There's like oh okay all right. That's fun but we don't want to make a decision yet. Let's let's let's try providence. This picture officials they didn't know the official providence. It's free you've you're flying air so i was like all right. But i'm going to ruckus so adamant about that and I took my official visit at providence. College and jason murdoch with My host and he takes me to the whitest club in providence rhode island area. I was like jane. this is Like this now my cup of tea like you know what i'm saying like we gotta get out of here and You know i sort of practices and all that you know they give they show you your jersey your sneakers and all that they try to sell you with that and it was. Everything was closed at like like ten. Eleven o'clock out there out like now. I think for me the same for me. So i went back home to my parents and i told him about the province college experience. I was like now. This this thing for me. I providence is not a. I'm a rather ruckus. And then you know they had to talk with me. There was like well. You gotta look at rookus like is living in. Coney island all the distractions right. And then you gotta look at providence. Like not living over.
