Glenn Kirschner Would Sign Executive Orders to Counter Trump's Evil
"I'm not here to beat up on the current administration. But if I were president, which would never happen because I can't run for office, I would sign executive orders with my right hand all day every day until it fell off and then I would sign executive orders with my left hand. Think about what Donald Trump did when he first came to office within I think a week of being sworn in, he was signing a Muslim ban that was banning human beings from our country. He was banning human beings. And what happened? It was struck down. So what did he do? Did he give up? No, he and his dirty, ugly, hateful group of lawyers, went back, retooled, signed another one, and that one was upheld. He banned human beings from our country. We should be the president should be signing executive orders, flooding the zone with good the way Donald Trump flooded the zone with bad. And then Steph, we go in the court, and we fight for those executive orders. And one of two things will happen. The courts will either uphold them all for the good because now we've won and we've protected people or the courts will strike them down, and then we go back, we retool, we do it again based on what we learned from the court opinion, we get it right and we do good for people. I don't understand why we're not going scorched earth flooding the zone with

Why Is the Media Ignoring the Attempted Assassination of Kavanaugh?
"This is Kevin from Rhode Island, Charlie. What do you make of the assassination attempt against Brett Kavanaugh? Why is the media ignoring this? Or they're ignoring it because that helpful. To mention it, the fact that there was a legit assassination attempt against Brett Kavanaugh and his family. Now we still don't know how the U.S. Marshals knew this person was going to drive up to Brett Kavanaugh's home. I would imagine through cell phone surveillance and all of that. That would be an interesting thing to find out and actually be the best case for the Patriot Act that I've heard in quite some time because I haven't heard a good one in a long time because the Patriot Act and all this stuff seems to just be abused and spying on moms and dads that show up at school board meetings. But this has been bubbling up for quite some time. Remember back in May, Jen Psaki said that protests have been peaceful today, and we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges homes, even though that is a federal crime to go try to influence a Supreme Court opinion outside of a Supreme Court Justice home. Do you think of a bunch of maga hat wearing Trump supporters showed up at katangi Brown Jackson's home? Do you think they would be arrested? Play cut 62. Know that there's an outrage right now, I guess, about protests that have been peaceful to date. And we certainly continue to encourage that outside of judges homes, and that's the president's position. They continue to encourage it outside of judges homes. And that is the president's position. Thankfully, the U.S. Marshals were there to intercept this soon to be lunatic. The soon to be murderer, he had rope, he had knives, he had a gun,

Sebastian Chats With Ken Klukowski About the Impending Roe Decision
"We have somebody who I trust for legal advice who's worked in the Trump administration at the DoJ practicing lawyer breitbart contributor, you've got to read his latest pieces at breitbart dot com. His can clockhouse can. Welcome back to America first. Great to be with you. Thanks for having me. All right, I'm going to just say what I think about the Supreme Court draft decision. Because I'm not a lawyer, but I read all 70 pages recently. And you know what shocked me and maybe I should read more of these documents, it was a fabulous historic tour de rizon. It was a treatise. It wasn't full of mumbo jumbo that a layman couldn't understand. First it was this amazing historic review of how the law treated abortion in western civilization going back to the 17th century in the UK, the concept of quickening. And then basically this conclusion that until roe V wade, it was illegal in America, and then it was a segment by segment dismantling of both roe and Casey saying it's just bad law and analyzing started decisis in other concepts. So Ken, give me your illegal professional opinion, is this an unusually good pre decisional draft, or is this because it's a Leto who's riding it? Well, first of all, justice alita was a brilliant justice. His opinions are uniformly wonderful. But what you just described in as I read it as well, it reminds me of the late justice Scalia's opinion in District of Columbia versus hello. Yeah. Which held that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is an individual right from 2008. That opinion was also almost exactly the same page length. That was a little over 60 pages. And what you saw there is what a well written Supreme Court opinion is supposed to look like. This is an original list decision. One that looks to the text, structure, and history of the constitution, and in this case, in terms of looking at the history of a purported right to abortion, showing why. This is in fact not a right found in the U.S.

Matt Whitaker: 'I Don't Have Anything Personally Against Roberts'
"I don't have anything personal against Roberts. In fact, he's been always very gracious and kind to me when we've interacted, which hasn't been often, but from time to time, I would run into him while I was in the administration at various official functions. You know, he's a product of Department of Justice. But, you know, I think back to the opinion on Dobbs. And this is where I think it gets really interesting based on this leaked opinion. Because if, you know, depending on who leaked it is sort of depends on their strategy, if obviously, Robert only needs one of those 5 that did sign on to this majority opinion to peel off into a concurrence with him to really actually write the opinion that is the law. And that's what's interesting to me. You know, I think Robert still has some power in shaping this, but as long as the 5 in the majority opinion stand firm, then roe V wade has been overturned. It's progeny. It's emanations in penumbras and all the kind of things Doug that you know was very frustrating as a law student to read and to say, you know, why is this entirely different than any other, you know, court opinion and analysis. And it's always been because it took a political issue that was reserved to the people into the states. And turn it into a legal question. And the science, you know, the left loves to point to the science. Well, the science has evolved and changed and viability and all those kind of issues are going to continue to change. And that's where, again, elected politicians that are responsible to the people can handle it much better and write these laws and adjust based on their constituents and their feedback from their constituents, then a court can, like you said, every decade or so when this issue is presented

But i make the right choice is the one of the alone forever if you were the fiance and you saw that on your iphone ipod on pat or concern with what just played. Well i mean look. Marriage is a big deal feel like perish. She should be short and our choices. I've been divorced already. It's easy to get engaged. You can get engaged as many times as you wish people do that i can. Let's get married like she should take time. I know she's older and wiser now so think she'll make the right choice but i'm rooting for her. And i think for a lot of women you reach a particular age and you start having this fear. Is that going to happen for m. i going to be alone forever. And that is a really. That's a real fear that a lot of women have so you have to make sure you're not letting fear rush you into the wrong decision. And furthermore i think there's something to be said about calling off an engagement and not getting married. That's very brain it is. Yeah and you shouldn't have to settle. Like i don't like when people i don't like the idea of oh i should just be with someone to be with someone because i don't wanna be alone if i'd rather be alone with someone i don't want to be with and i don't know i've seen some cousin paris's fiancee's ups air honeywood all that money that gave her that fourteen carat rock.

She's very savvy savvy businesswoman as. Well the money is like it's going to get rich man but she's not really rich and also let me tell you what's lonely. There's nothing lonelier them being in a marriage laying in bed next to your husband and feeling the most alone and lonely as the you ever fell my god. That is work sleep bigger house jingle lonely.

Why am i working seventeen hours a day. Not having the stuff that they're having they just married smart. I think sometimes people marry and it's a business thing but when you marry for money you earn every single since this right. It is not the way to do it. They don't call it a job for nothing extremes on peacock november all right. We're halfway through the beverly hills housewives reunion and the hits. Just keep on coming now. Erica's coming for everyone. Who turned her. Check out this preview of part three era tonight on bravo. Who is for you and who is against. You should ask them well but you said when this is all over. I'm going to remember who was for me and who against me. Yes i'm keeping score you're keeping score So what's the score so far. Keep that to myself. I think it's pretty can. Can i say something. Because i've been reading stories and the tabloids whatever online you upset with me and i just hope you know that we were in such a difficult position and you know there was many things i know that you couldn't say but then i thought well there's things that you could say. That would help us understand a little more. Which was very complicated. The thing that hurt me the most was to watch that dinner to watch the four of you. Mock my life and mock. My family really hurt me. Could you forgive somebody who wasn't on your side explicitly. I just feel like these ladies are in a very difficult position. Because at the end of the day at think for me when i and i love erica chain when i look at this whole thing unfold my mind keeps going back to the actual victims and i know i honestly believed that. She didn't really have anything to do with this. I i'm fine with that. But i think there's something to be said like. She can't be mad at her friends for not like being able to totally back her up when we don't really still have a lot of information she's not even able to disclose a lot of things that maybe could help her case a little bit. You're talking like you're a housewives. Expert have you been on a show like this before a little bit. It's i think a lotta times on these shows. There are two things that we have on you. A how is your friend gonna react right the way you react and be. How is the audience going to react. The we react right and a lot of times. I think the women do take our social media. Go exactly so how you exactly so maybe it real life. I might be like. Oh yeah my girlfriend do that. Oh yeah She didn't cheat on her husband. No no. I didn't see that right but if the audience sees you and they know that you know something and you're not saying they're going to call you out for being in authentic so that's the hard spot you got to be able to envision and to see clearly what people are going to say because it is a quarter public opinion. I'm sorry at the end of the day. Is the court public opinion. it is. i agree with you all..

That's potentially very damaging business to jeff's point into your concern.

"Although my China's introduction of a new national security law is transforming the city Critics say it's silencing the opposition. Have been more than 10,000 arrests since the start of the protest movement in 2019. Since the law was introduced a year ago, more than 100 arrests have been made under the national security law. In a tiny room on the Taliban side of Hong Kong. 23 year old alum, A former student activists looks down at photos of his friends. Some are in prison. And others have fled. But he remains. He fears the new law has ended activism in the city. Hi, Eva. How, he said the door again. Hold can you call most of our generation is going through this they are compelled to or are planning to leave their homes. Many of my friends in Hong Kong are either arrested or have been persecuted with political cases. Many others have left Hong Kong due to the national security and other reasons. For those left in Hong Kong. Many have decided to stay until the last resort, but some of them are struggling to decide whether to stay or to leave. Despite the risk of arrest. The child continues to speak out. Inside his clothing store stands a life size statue of Hong Kong protester In May, 80 police officers raided his shop. Said he was selling goods which violated the new law. After that 1.5 hour search. I felt The law that I knew was dead. And the National Security law was abused. And this is not the Hong Kong that I know. He believes the national security law is designed to silence critics of the government. In time for the 100 year anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party. They wanted to intimidate, because I think Eight. Kind of have the agenda. To try and silence outspoken people. Instead of trying to use the national security law as a law to protect The national security of China and Hong Kong. And if they decided to use it as a weapon to silence people. And they arrest you. What can I say? What can I do? I'm not going to change the way I live just because there's something so vague going around. In society. If anything, I'm duty bound to prove Citizens of Hong Kong should not live in fear. Winning. Is about continuing to live normal. To speak up. That's our winning. That report from Danny Vincent. A short time ago, I spoke to Emily Lau, a veteran pro democracy campaigner and former member of the Legislative Council. How would she characterized this transformative year? Well, some people would say that Hong Kong has been turned upside down. But of course there are those who welcome it. I'm sure you're aware Hong Kong is a city that has been split asunder by the protests we've seen in the last few years. And also chief executive Carrie Lam and the Executive council's inability to solve Hong Kong's problem, and some people even went to Beijing and asked them to send the People's Liberation Army. Coming to quell the unrest. And so Beijing responded by this national security law and also changing the electoral system. And now appointing police offices as top of government. But I must tell you we are not asking for independence. Most people accept. We are a special administrative region of the People's Republic of China, but we want to be able to continue to be free to be safe and to develop democracy. And that's what Beijing promise us and promised the British government when they signed the joint declaration in 1984 and said, We can have this free lifestyle for 50 years after 97 Now it's not even halfway And now we are seeing banishing banishing freedoms. You mentioned the United Kingdom and the treaty between China and the United Kingdom. I wonder how you reflect on the way the international community has responded, the US revoked Hong Kong's Special trade status. Um, many countries suspended their extradition treaties with Hong Kong. When you look at the relationship between Hong Kong and the rest of the world. How do you reflect on that? I wanted the international community. To care about what's happening here. In fact, I want them to come here to do business to live and work here. And of course, I want Hong Kong to have the environment which is inviting to foreigners as well as local people. We don't want to see the people who you know or rushing to the airport, trying to catch the plane to go to the UK. It is happening, though, isn't it? I mean that there is even just anecdotally that there are many, many people who are choosing to leave and and in many ways, it's been quite different, too. The post Tiananmen Square. Um, years when a post 1989 the kinds of people who are wanting to leave Hong Kong are middle class, not necessarily the elite and many people in their twenties as well, choosing to leave that that must feel That must feel quite different. Yes, And I think many leave because they have young Children and some don't have Children also leaving And of course, it's good that the British government finally Decided to have this policy of a path to citizenship. I think it's good that Hong Kong people have an option. Don't want to see people trapped here on this island. But I repeat. I hope that Beijing will keep the promises of the Sino British Joint Declaration and the Basic Law. It's interesting to hear you talk about the hope that Beijing will stick to that agreement, but it does feel that the national security law has been used. In all kinds of ways that that prevent a space for the freedoms that you're talking about. More than 100. People have been arrested, among them prominent political activists. What space is there now? In your view to oppose what's happening, I think is vanishing space disappearing space, but I refused to say the game is over. No, the struggle must go on in a peaceful and nonviolent way. That's the way I have behaved for decades. And we will continue you say, Are you foolish? Your your head needs examining thinking Beijing will change. Well, we just have to keep edit. All of what you're saying presumes that Beijing is actually listening and your acknowledgement that Hong Kong is a city of China. Must surely make you consider that Actually, Beijing is not interested in courting public opinion, well, interested or not? I think this is our way forward. We're not going to use force or violence, No revolution and we are not going to leave Hong Kong so we have to continue. And I think in many places countries, people do the struggle in a peaceful way. And, of course, many people made huge sacrifices. And there are people dodging bullets swimming in rivers of blood and they still fight. I think we are no lesser beings, although I don't support violence. And so, uh, we just have to carry on..

Common Home Conversations Beyond UN75
"court public opinion" Discussed on Common Home Conversations Beyond UN75
"Or the proposed global pact. I think there are a whole range of challenges. And maybe i'll just name a few because these processes are so so complicated and the backgrounds the backdrop you know the geopolitical backdrop for example can make a huge difference said anyone particular time you know to have such achievements breakthrough treaties breakthrough progress. The star sort of half to sign in terms of you know what administrations are in place in various major countries for example like the. Us that has traditionally been a real leadership country in a range of of areas so there are a whole lot of background factors that i think are really important for successful treaty negotiation successful adoption of new significant international norms however apart from those sorts of dynamics national governments politics i think legal experts international civil society can do a lot to develop release sound proposals. That have policy. Legal proposals of excellence center fought through that are developed as a result of consultation with a broad array of stakeholders include governmental actors civil society actors progressive business actors. So i think if proposals are very well developed to end the fought through they can have a natural of force are sort of like a gravitational pull because he international community and most civil servants from countries around the world. But i've worked with. They're looking for solutions to problems. So if really well-thought-through proposals can be put on the table. For policymakers a critical mass of states may get on board despite major countries have differing views. I on people. So i think that's a really powerful lever for change. Also of course is what we've touched upon a few times. This notion of transnational civil society and the power of a very well organized vibrant robust energetic international campaigns of civil society groups that are working in key issue areas. And as i mentioned it. It's really heartening to see. A number of those sorts of coalitions getting started and gathering momentum in the ecological climate governance area. So i think those sorts of well-designed campaigns which should be strategic which should have key messages. Also engage the public across the world and the public can be extremely influential in key states for example in the us for the nation of the international criminal court public opinion was very influential in also trying to raise awareness and legal norms about genocide. Us public opinion has been very very helpful. Push norms forward. So i think there's a lot that sort of civil society merged with expert platforms can push offer to the international community and the vast majority of states i think in civil servants working in international organizations really are looking for good sound solutions to help manage our global risks definitely and i think all these new programs and campaigns by civil society have definitely helped light a fire that we hadn't seen previously so it's really exciting to see and i know i always enjoy seeing the different discourse that results from these and they really can't help move the needle and i think that's so important to note. I sometimes think with the climate crisis. People feel like well. I'm just one person. what can i do. And it's so important to realize that your voice does count. It does matter and you do have the power to make a difference absolutely definitely so the common home of humanity has proposed recognizing the earth system as an intangible global common without borders. In your opinion. How would this help us better address. Existential threats such as the climate emergency. Yes thank you for raising this really important proposal and having this podcast series also dialoguing on these proposals which i think is really fascinating. I think the proposal recognize your system as an intangible global commons is paradigm shifting in even deeper way than the gold pack or other. Even though i of course think global pact is very worthwhile but this sort of new legal paradigm to have a global commons with the earth system at the center. I think should be really seriously considered and further developed in workshops. I think a key. Point that paolo mehanna s has raised. Is you know if you can't label or category is something like the system or the climate system. It's very difficult to manage. And i think that's a valid point and also as paolo has explained the condominium sort of approach to their system where there be a global commons would be the earth system in the safe operating space for humanity to keep the natural systems in balance so that we have a safe operating space for humanity to thrive having at his at common intangible global comments and then still having you know clearly this notion of sovereignty the nation state which is of course still a very very important administrative unit in the judicial system. I think it's really a brilliant and interesting suggestion. Also such an approach would allow the international community to really focus together on managing this common facility. That is so vital vital to our thriving vital to our survival interconnected with all sorts of other global risks and security threats. As you had mentioned. So i think geopolitically in terms of deterioration of the international community and the international system would be a really wonderful collective project for the international community to take on. Of course you know. Earth system science planetary sciences climate science and the proposal scientific proposals about the planetary boundaries etc. This is still a very involving complex. Area of science and that in itself is a challenge but in that area also. It's just extraordinary to see all the talented scientists working in this area. Trying to put the pieces together so that we can really think concretely about you know planetary boundaries or the system. We can think on a planetary level as we indeed absolutely need to do so as we've seen for example the work of ipc having this global scientific perspective is just absolutely vital for the trash community at this time. So that's another very exciting. Part of this work is connecting connecting to you know the most recent international planetary science which is so important absolutely and it's exciting to see more research come out of earth system science. I know i always enjoy reading new work from the common home of humanity and contributors such as well stephan. So it's definitely a great time for this. And i think it's such an important effort as we move forward to address. These interconnected threats we face now before we go. Do you have anything else. You'd.

She left in uber but she saw this kid with her phone because his kid was a young blackmail she automatically be the the culprit who still have a before you finish. That thought we. She was having her interview. Gale gale accident exact same question which she said was that she saw him exit the building and she thought that anybody china exit the building hacker but our attention was just on him exactly attention with him and i feel like even so. She was interviewed by by gail And gals talking to her and She's not getting attitude with with with gail and saying that What is wrong with her. A up attacking pretty much attack. And i saw this. I saw a whole lot of this is a whole lot of nexus. She's like no enough gale and asked his because she wanted to. She wanted to play the victim man and everything that gets gale was saying so is this sean is like like you are clearly at fault for for causing it's like you look at a kid who who was black and you automatically made him the culprit. You didn't see anybody else. And when the him the father telling you this is not your phone you proceeded to attack him and then you get upset inch and your defense you say well. The father pushed me off his kid. What what do you expect to happen. Young lady so that was a very delusional woman. I watched in that in that in that video with gail and i wanna know what is going to be the outcome of this situation like what. What are the consequences for that type of crime firstly. He assaulted crime. She also the minor and on top of assaulting him like so like. I don't even know if this could be like I don't even know defamation of character. The right the right law that i was saying like definitely. She accused him in public of doing something that he didn't do right so he has to be something associated with that and then I mean she calls a public disruption right so never that hotel was they own apology right because they should reprimanded her on the spot like it was no reason that the father had reprimanded her and there wasn't any type of security there ever made her in. How does she go like four or five days before they even the cops even went to pursue her right so to me. There are so many things that had this been a different situation. That had this been her. Instead of the young man you know media he would have been in jail that day. That's my first concern. My second concern is i felt like you know i really really dry would get because you know. I'm gonna always support in love like all my black women but that interview in the amount of patients and the amount of You know just just kindness. That i feel like she gave that girl and she didn't act no hard questions the way she acts to black people or about black people You know i just felt even when she was recounting the events with some our other colleagues you know her conversation was just like you know it just sat right you know. This is intolerable behavior like we need to have laws like hold them accountable the way you hold us accountable right. That's i had a concern with that girl blatantly disrespected you like on air in front of vary by all you can say. Oh that's my favorite part. Because obviously she felt like you. Black women didn't have a right to question her either. Like let's just be real clear about this. And i just felt like you know gail like you know. Sometimes in this is why. I'm so glad that we have the slack form that we can talk about our issues ourselves and we're not concerned a worried about who you know who you need to censor ourselves for affiliate. She's really censoring herself. And that's a child right so anyway you know how we saw this spec announce whatever so the first thing that would happened is she should correct Ended the interview right and she should have been reached out to whoever she couldn't make sure her ask is Law teacher asks of respect and so to me. I saw none of that. What i saw was a lot of restraint a lot of patients. And just you know you know. The argues needs to be trained. Better like that's fucking bullshit. She'd grown michigan. Oh over twenty one years old wanted to. Why would she entitled felton title. Her whole attitude was just to me like that's the confidence they can have right. Like black women have that confidence were angry. Black rate is now was calling her eighty black woman she was like i was attacked and people are like she was attacked. Some reading comments now. And i'm looking at people like well. She was attacked to by his father like they like what. It isn't the same to me how people can watch the same scenario happened and everybody has different viewpoints. And i'll just stop talking about the incident. That occurred on something about the interview. And i felt like gale coulda did so much better. You know i felt like you know it was the when when you realized that that girl was no longer capable of happened in adult conversation. Your questions should have been directed to her lawyer. You should've asked her lawyer. What is this kind of penalty. Her crucify her in the court. Like in fucking court public opinion because she needs to be crucified in. I did not appreciate that. Gail did not do that. Because i would acoustic by her my son. You don't even know like the you've incited a riot inside of me. Like i can even imagine mia so and i teach my son pushing is a woman still. Have you watch a hands on him. And she is like attacking him off in her. Money's you know my that young fourteen. You know what. I'm saying like he doesn't need the like you don't even like thought process right because it doesn't trigger for you immediately like the to should target round obviating. The all black people traumatized that we should just wanna we. Don't he wasn't trying to fight her back. that's his father had to even get involved. She crazy you think mysel- you so it was just like she's an adult an not-i'm anybody.
Fox News Rundown
The relationship between Justice Scalia and RBG
"Lies in state in the Capitol today, the first woman ever given that honor in the first Supreme Court justice since William Howard Taft and he'd also been the president. Justice. Ginsburg's casket was at the court for two days for people to pay their respects, including President Trump, and the first lady booed when they got there. The president has had nice things to say about Justice Ginsburg since her death, you may agree. You may not disagree with her, but he was an inspiration to a tremendous number of people. I say all Americans, and now, he says, it's his job to fill that seat on the court. I think it's very important that we have nine justices. And I think the system is going to go very quickly. The president plans to announce his nominee tomorrow. Joe Biden, and a lot of other Democrats say he should fill that seat if he wins the election in light of Republicans blocking President Obama from filling a seat in an election year, the seat President Obama would have filled incident. Scalia's went to Neil Gorsuch instead of Merrick Garland. For all the fighting. There's been over Justices Scalia and Ginsburg in life. They were very good friends. People always find it surprising that they were such good friends, Christopher Scully's the Eighth of Incident. Scalia's nine Children. There's a new collection published of his father's writing called The Essential Scalia. Their friendship went back. Really to the early eighties, when they were judges together on the D C circuit Court of Appeals, which is kind of like the second most important court in the country, and they they had a good working relationship that which really started back then they would help each other revised their drafts and their opinions. Apparently, the other judges on that court really didn't like getting advice about their writing and how to improve the clarity of what they're writing in the force of their arguments. But Justice Ginsburg liked getting and receiving that kind of advice, and so did my dad, and they formed what he called a mutual improvement society during their time on the court there. And And they had other things in common. They were they had similar backgrounds and that they were both New Yorkers grew up in New York around the same time, different boroughs but around the same time and shared a love of opera. Good wine eating good food. Both of their thousands were excellent cooks. Marty Ginsburg, in particular, is kind of a legendary cook, who would put together wonderful meals every New Year's Eve and they would celebrate New Year's Every every year is well. So you know, despite all their differences, and all the many things they disagreed about, including a number of opinions in this collection. They had a wonderful friendship were able to kind of focus on the things they had in common. Your dad in Justice Ginsburg, I don't know the statistics on how often they concurred or dissented on cases. But I imagine that they disagreed. Maybe as much as any two Recent justices have my right. Yeah, I think that that sounds right. I don't know the statistics, either. I think people would be surprised by how often they agreed with each other. But on the real hot button cultural cases, they often disagreed one of her most important, most famous opinions. Was Virginia Military Institute case from the mid nineties. And my My father wrote a dissent to that case, which is in this collection, the essentials, Scalia and it was hey actually gave her the draft of that descent a little bit earlier than one usually does just so that she would have more time to kind of Deal with it and grapple grapple with his arguments. And and, yeah, some of his most staying the sense we're in response to opinions. She didn't necessarily right but but joined, And I think that's probably true. Vice versa. Tell us very about the big bouquet of roses she got from him. My dad would get her roses for her birthday and I guess the Ah, I think the last time he did that. So the year before he died, one of the editors of the Essential Scalia Judge Jeffrey Sutton was visiting my father in chambers on on Justice Ginsburg's birthday. And he saw that my dad had two dozen roses for Justice Ginsburg and Judge Sutton started teasing Dad saying, You know, I haven't even gotten my wife two dozen roses over the course of our entire marriage. Why would you do this? And besides, When was the last time she cited with you on a really important 54 decision? You know, he's poking fun, You know, not not really being serious, but My dad gave a serious answer, which was some things are more important than votes. As I think I just kind of a great encapsulation of their of their relationship of their friendship they had they had Very different opinions of politics and of their jobs as a zoo judges and of what laws, men and with the Constitution, man. But, uh, how they voted wasn't the biggest factor in their relationship. It wasn't that those opinions didn't matter. And it wasn't that they compromised their beliefs for each other. But they didn't let those very strongly held beliefs undermine their very deep friendship collection of Supreme Court. Justice Antonin Scalia is writing sort of like a greatest hits album. It's opinions and other writing about the law and the Constitution again called the Essential Scalia. This is really just a collection of his greatest Legal writings, opinions, speeches, essays and they collected together give a really good sense of white. Exactly. He was such a significant Supreme Court justice on it. They're having in one collection really makes it tangible for anybody understand that we'll just as a legal reference work. You've got to think it's going to end up being bought by or four A lot of lawyers and judges know absolutely in law students. I hope you know that he he wrote. Clearly, he wrote, Hey, had so many memorable phrases and his opinions. His logic was so strong and convincing that people just kind of they often went to his opinions first. And so it's good for people to kind of have that as a resource to keep going to those opinions. Even you know, even after His passing is also besides the legal community. It's also like you said. It's very readable, even for non lawyers for just a general interest audience who might, but he was just simply a very, very good writer. Yeah, it's exactly right. He hey, wrote. For? I guess we would now call it out of transparency. You know, Even when he was writing Supreme court opinions, he understood that they should be understood themselves by everyday citizens, not just legal eagles and people with legal degrees. He kind of a recurring theme of his opinions. Is that people should know what the court courts are doing and people that the court should not usurp power that properly belongs to the people. And I think that kind of reverence for the Democratic order is is kind of manifest in his in the clarity of his writing a lot of times if he had a vote, a personal vote on how a case would turn out it may or may not a lot of times did a line with how he ruled, But sometimes it probably wouldn't have right. Yeah, I think that's true. And that's especially true in one example is when he sided with the majority in a flag burning case. The majority ruled that, um, it was constitutional sorry from burning the flag was constitutionally protected speech under the First Amendment so prohibiting that in the state law was unconstitutional. My father often explained that he did not like Three idea of flag burning. If he were a king, he would ban it. But clearly to him falls under the protection of the protection of the First Amendment, and a lot of conservatives to this day do not like that opinion. My father thought the Constitution was clear about that. There are many examples in this collection, the essential Scalia of instances in which he stands up for the rights of the accused defendant's rights. There's a famous case in here where search and seizure cases as well there a couple of those in here where he just thought, you know the police do not have authority, for example, to use Scans of houses, Tio identify Marilou who was growing marijuana without that was an illegal search examples like that s so if he could just pass a law That was one thing, but actually sorry, there couldn't be even be lost for that because they so clearly violated the Constitution, even though obviously he wouldn't have approved of those particular actions. Sure. Hey, was also notice the talker during oral arguments. He has asked a lot of questions and clearly sometimes, though, they weren't really questions. They were just arguments he was making to his fellow justices. Do you think he went into most cases with his mind made up based on the briefs, and the president is a bad thing, but not usually the case. I think that the justices, you know, I can't say for certain, but my hunch is that they often have to go in with a pretty good idea, but I think for the most part, they do ask questions, not just Not just to be heard or not just to make arguments, but because they want to really engage with the arguments that the lawyers are making in the forward to this collection, Justice Kegan first of all, very happy that she agreed to write this beautiful forward, But she she says that she says just that, you know, Dad would ask these questions because he loved argument and kind of loved mixing it up. It wasn't just kind of wasn't just for show though he did. I think you're right. He was very kind of an engaging speaker and There was some study years ago that that found he was. He was the funniest justice by the standards of he drew the most laughter from the courtroom during oral arguments, which obviously isn't the most important thing to do, but just shows how much he he enjoyed that process that love for debate. Did it? Was it a two way street was? Was he persuadable? Absolutely. That's something justice Kagan mentions in her forward. She doesn't say when she ever changed his mind, but says They change each other's minds at times. Well, Christopher Scalia, It was great to talk, Teo, The book is called The Essential Scalia on the Constitution, the courts and the rule of law. Chris Scalia. Really good to talk to you. Thanks so much, Thanks so much appreciate your time.

Supreme Court eyes abortion challenges ahead of 2020
"Summer is definitely over the Supreme Court justices returned to work on Monday as the October twenty nineteen term officially begins and waiting for the justices will be several abortion cases that are getting harder for them to avoid joining me is Bloomberg Supreme Court reporter Greg store Greg cases involving challenges to laws in Louisiana and Indiana will be before the justices in Tuesday's private conference but neither of the cases directly challenges roe V. Wade or Planned Parenthood V. Casey so what's the concern the concern for abortion rights advocates is that the court could use these cases to start chipping away at at the the the core abortion right even if it doesn't directly consider whether to overturn rowing Casey both these two cases do raise questions about that big ruling from a few years ago where the Supreme Court said struck down texas' Lule requiring doctors to have hospital admitting privileges that was seen at the time as the biggest abortion rights ruling victory in a generation since then of course the course composition has changed and there's at least the potential that the court will start pushing back on that this term. so let's talk about that Louisiana case which seems to replicate the Texas case yeah it's very very similar in terms of what it does it requires doctors at the gonna perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby and abortion rights advocates say it's really hard to keep those privileges and the the effect of that would be that it closes a number of clinics around the state leaves a stay with only one open clinic Louisiana disputes that in a federal appeals court said essentially we agree with Louisiana about the impact of this law it's not nearly as great as what happened in that Texas case in there for we can distinguish it from what the Supreme Court said in Texas and up hold the law. the Supreme Court has has previously stop this law from going into effect chief justice John Roberts joined with the court's five liberals to do that back in February now the court's going to say whether it's going to take up the the appeal on the merits if they do really all bets are off in terms of which way the court I go what what position does that put the chief in a difficult position this is not you know he even when there are there are precedents he clearly does not like his preference is to move slowly it's pretty clear that on the abortion issue that in the last term the court did not have a whole lot of appetite for getting involved in and no doubt he played a big role in that it's going to be hard for him because he was at the center in that ruling from twenty sixteen that the taxes ruling he didn't agree with it then probably doesn't agree with it now but he understands the perception of win the court overturns a precedent it is it's very striking and as he put it as confirmation hearings that that decade they have a goal go with a jolt to the system and the perception would be that the court is rolling back abortion rights not because they the earlier decision was necessarily wrong but because they're different members on the Supreme Court we now have to trump appointees and those trump appointees almost certainly would make the difference if that's the direction the court went tell us about the Indiana case which raises similar issues yeah this is a law that says after away for one wants to have an abortion she has to wait for eighteen hours after she has an ultrasound now the state already had an ultrasound requirements it all already have an eighteen hour waiting period for other types of so called informed consent requirements but then the state decided to combine those things. if the you have to wait for eighteen hours after the ultrasound and the problem from the abortion rights standpoint is for a lot of one women that means they have to drive hundreds of miles to a clinic a long way away and make two trips there or stay over night they are so it does make it significantly harder for some women to actually get an abortion and they say that makes all the difference in this case is that a federal appeals court struck down the law so if the court's going to take this one up the evidence is going to come from the other side it's going to be the conservative justices who say Hey we disagree with that lower court opinion we want to take it off the court right now has both these two cases the Louisiana hospital privileges case in the in Indiana weeding carry case before it and they're gonna have to decide are we taking just one of these cases we taking both of these cases or for our somehow we can avoid taking either of these cases and we we talk about the cheese being sort of the pivotal vote now but as far as taking the case they only need four votes so is it justice Cavanaugh who's the pivotal vote that's a good point he he may well be with especially when we're talking about that Indiana case where the lower court struck down the requirements and so yes it could be that the four conservative justices with justice Cavanaugh would vote to take up the case even though the chief doesn't Chief Justice doesn't want to take it up now that being said if you're the conservative looking at it realistically you you might only want to do that if you're pretty confident you're going you're going to get the chief justice's vote alternately when the court rules because then you're going to need that fifth vote but yes it is possible that that the four conservatives could agree to take it out without him necessarily without Roberts necessarily being part of that decision to justice Clarence Thomas has written about moving the abortion issue forward are the other. conservative justices as anxious to move it forward rapidly or are they in the mode of let's do it gradually. it's a bit of a continuing here justice Gorsuch is it seems to be largely with justice Thomas and having it you know a real desire to move quickly on this issue justice Cavanaugh in the last term there was one opinion he wrote when the court decided to to block that Louisiana hospital privileges law from taking effect he said he disagreed with that decision but then wrote a separate opinion saying why that step wasn't really that significant why will what he wanted the court to do by letting the if it had the court let the law take effect it would really have that big of an impact point being he's trying to say I'm
