"Goya beans, Can I? They politicized Goya beans, They politicized straws they politicized. Absolutely everything. It turned on a baseball game, and everybody is kneeling to perform acts of political gratification upon the left whatever left wing cause it is today and and it's you and they use because these left wing causes they go toe the grocery store chains that the chieftains they go to the department store chains, and they say, Well, wouldn't you like to ask every customer if they'd like to give to abortion? And they say, Well, gosh, maybe I wouldn't really like, Well, you know, we had to have to organize an online boycott against your stores, which becomes gangsterism that becomes protectionism. Is the federal government used to go after the Mafia For this where you go into stores you say will be it'd be a shame if anything happened to your business. You know, it's the protections rackets, and that's what the left is doing. All right. They got quite literally is that the 21st century version of that? We will orchestrate a boycott against you. If you don't make sure that money funnels tow us through your organization, and they found a way to make it more painless there. But the company's then they shovel over truckloads of money to black lives matter and start big companies, all the big companies, they're given millions and millions of dollars to black lives matter. Which has no identifiable leadership. There is no person you can point to and say he's the CEO of the president of the founder. Anything else of black lives matter. These air, these nebulous radical left wing organizations that are engaging quite strictly and in protectionism, all right, that's what it is. And when they go to stores, and and I personally, I resent the fact that they've poisoned baseball. Poisoned basketball poisoned football. I see Colin Kaepernick is getting the and Anthony Fauci Getting the Robert F. Kennedy Civil Rights Award. Two of that, and I think they share when they each get one. They Anthony Fauci, who apparently learned to throw from Ruth Bader Ginsburg, did you see that the other night and it said it was somebody made a funny joke. He just wants to make sure nobody catches anything that Zoe threw the ball all the way over there. But honestly throws like Ruth Bader Ginsburg and then gave it to page excuse, which I had no use for, but what they're engaging in is nothing short of the old Mafia gangster Chicago, New York Protection, racketeering. You go to a company and say, Make people give us money every time that and shame them. And if you say no, I'm not going to do that. They said, Well, yeah, we'd have to organize the We'll hurt your business by orchestrating a boycott. And that is Gangsterism. That's that is third World Banana Republic gangsterism of the first order, and it's perfectly normal now the left and the media and honestly, the Justice Department should find a way to pursue this as just a scratch. And we're talking about this yesterday. Everywhere you've got to donate and it's you know, Otherwise, you're bad guy. They look a scant set you, the cashier says. Would you like to donate to killing babies and say No, I wouldn't. And and they look at a scant at you as though you have done something Euron generous or something on it's amazing, and it reminded me of the 1980 movie 1980. The movie is called Airplane Airplane. And Robert Stack is a rough and tumble old military guy who's a pilot and he's coming into the airport and 1980. Every time you walked into an airport, there were gangs of crazy people that gangs, individuals like the Krishnas and that, you know, death cult from California on and you know, Jonestown cult and then whatever coat they'd be standing inside the airport terminal. Waiting to hustle you and try to get you to join these groups and to donate money to them. And finally, we put an end to that. And yesterday when my best girl was describing this. I was reminded of this scene from the movie Airport, which Michael Piercy kindly provided. Excuse me. We'd like to have the power Excuse.
Amy Coney Barret Tilts The Balance in Divisive Ruling
"A lot for being with us on this day after Thanksgiving. It was right before Thanksgiving late Wednesday. When the U. S Supreme Court The majority said, even in a pandemic You can't put away the Constitution. Now. In New York governor Cuomo says that he issued these restrictions on places of worship. Based on science. And safety. And so this is a fascinating ruling. In many regards number one. It's a big plus for religious freedom. Number two. It was just this past summer. That the Supreme Court ruled basically the opposite. In a case and there's some other cases that are being considered. I believe some cases California, New Jersey, Louisiana, So this is all about the Supreme Court blocking New York's governor from enforcing 10 and 25 person occupancy limits On religious institutions. Courts, the restrictions would violate religious freedom. And are not neutral because they single out houses of worship or especially harsh treatment. Or said there's no evidence that the organizations that brought the lawsuit have contributed to the spread of cove in 19. And this was one of those 54 decisions. With Chief Justice John Roberts. Going along with Justices Stephen Bryer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. And in their descent. Chief justice. Roberts said he saw no need to take this action because New York had revised the designations of the affected areas. Governor Cuomo essentially Said the same thing. Nevertheless, the Supreme Court did rule on it and also in the sending opinion. Justice Sonia Sotomayor said this unlike religious services, Bike repair shops and liquor stores generally don't feature customers gathering inside to sing and speak together for an hour or more. She went on to say justices of this court play a deadly game in second guessing the expert judgment of health officials. About the environments in which a contagious virus now infecting a million Americans each week. Spreads most easily. Those are the words and the dissenting opinion from Justice. Sonia Sotomayor, your Down the majority, and this may be the new power five and this is one of the key developments out of this ruling. A new power five on the Supreme Court. Barrett Gorsuch. Thomas Alito. And Cavanaugh. Three of whom, of course, were Appointed By President Donald Trump in the Majority opinion. Justice, Gorsuch said this, he noted that Governor Cuomo had designated among others, the hardware stores acupuncturists. Liquor stores and bicycle repair shops as essential businesses. That were not subject to the most strict limits. Like these places of worship work. Gorsuch said. We may not shelter in place when the Constitution is under attack. Things never go well. When we do So it Zbig deal for the Supreme Court. It's a big deal for I mean, let's face it all those evangelicals that voted for President Trump. They've got to be doing a victory lap today, right? Maybe you are a swell 51283605 90. If you'd like to be a part of the program here, you give us a call or send us a text on K. O. B. J. It is because Amy Barrett just got on the court. Right, So it's really The first significant indication Of a rightward tilt to the court. And I mentioned this and may and July Supreme Court rejected challenges. Virus related restrictions on churches in California and Nevada. At that time, the Chief Justice John Roberts, Joined the courts Democratic appointees, which of course, then included Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And those rulings they stress that state and local governments required flexibility to deal with a dangerous and evolving pandemic. So The New York Times, Right said. This is just One example of how profoundly President Trump Has transformed the Supreme Court. This New York Times P, says Justice Bharat Help the chief justice of body blow. Casting the decisive vote in a 5 to 4 ruling. On religious services in New York. And New York Times says this is most certainly a taste. Of things to come. About this 51283605 90 here on Caleb E. J. It is an interesting question, right? In the summer time. Even the Supreme Court said, Look You may not like it when these local officials are trying to close the church. But You're dealing with health and safety issue. And there are rights. Given to local officials in the event. Of health and safety issues. Well, not in this case, the governor there in New York, Andrew Cuomo. He criticized the Supreme Court. Or overturning their restrictions. He said It was Morrell Astrit Ivo of the Supreme Court than anything else. He called the ruling irrelevant. Said it would have any practical impact because restrictions Are not in place and had been dialed back well. You know, it's interesting that even in the Opinion. That was written by Sonia Sotomayor, right? When she was talking about The court plays a deadly game and second guessing the expert judgment of health official. Let's stop right there.
Fresh update on "ginsburg" discussed on Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey
"Of christians around the world have only ever been able to be christians in secret for fear of persecution imprisonment torture martyrdom western and especially american history over the past. Couple of centuries has provided a small bit of relief for god's people to worship freely and that is that is that is a right that is a freedom that has also benefited people of other faiths as well. That is a gracious gift that we have been able to enjoy. That is not the norm for religious people especially christians throughout the world. We should be taking advantage of that religious liberty while we still have it. We don't know how much longer it's going to last. I mean there are. People obviously don't like religious liberty that resent religious liberty think. It's nothing more than than an excuse for harm. If those people get more and more power cultural power governmental power than we could be looking at the effective end of our religious liberty so right now wall we still have it in wall. We do still have a conservative supreme court before literally. God forbid joe biden and a democrat controlled. Congress tried to pack the courts. We should be taken advantage of this religious liberty as much as we possibly can. It doesn't seem like we should be using this time to sit on. Our hanson insists that loving our neighbor means shutting down schools and staying home indefinitely. John macarthur tweeted. This caused a little bit of controversy. It's divine providence. At work as the lord uses the death of ruth bader ginsburg the hubris of governor cuomo and the determination of donald trump and the convictions of justice barrett to protect the freedom of his church and of course anyone who believes in the sovereignty of god agrees with that statement. That doesn't mean that we are saying. Who ray ruth bader ginsburg died. And we're going to rub it in the face of people who are sad about her death that is not what we're saying but the sovereignty of god is in control of all things and he has used the series of events over the past year is terrible of some of them have have been to protect this very sacred right of religious liberty. Which like i said is a unique right that we should be thankful for and taking advantage of god is still in always has been never for one second stopped being completely in control of everything that is going on even and he in twenty twenty daniel twenty two twenty one says this he changes times and seasons here removes kings and sets up kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding psalm. One thirty five six says whatever the lord pleases he does in heaven and on earth in the seas and all deeps there's a lotta dad that's going on right now. There's a lot of confusion. There's a lot of reason to be worried to be scared but let's take a second to rejoice in a consequential decision protecting religious liberty. Praise the lord for his offer t in that. Remember as we've talked about before. When god is doing one thing he's doing a million things and they're not necessarily trending on twitter. The the vast majority of them are not. They're not always making headlines but he is on his throw no matter who is on the court no matter who is in the white house no matter who is in congress therefore piece does not waver in our responsibility to be good stewards to be righteous obedient ambassadors in the aroma of christ does not change just as there is not an asterisk by the first amendment or constitutional rights in the time of a pandemic so there is not a big asterisk by the commands that jesus gave us to go and make disciples to love our brothers and sisters in christ to be generous and hospitable again..

Supreme Court Rules New York Cannot Limit Attendance At Houses Of Worship Due To COVID-19
"The Supreme Court ruled late last night's to block New York from enforcing attendance limits on houses of worship. President Trump's new Appointee, Justice Amy Cockney, Barrett, was in the majority on the decision. It's a shift from two previous cases in Nevada and California this year, when Barrett's predecessor, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, was on the court. That's news nations. Geez Aggie reporting. The court's action won't have any immediate impact since the two groups that sued as a result of the restrictions.

Supreme Court Rules New York Cannot Limit Attendance At Houses Of Worship Due To COVID-19
"Some religious groups in new york are celebrating last night's rare late night. Supreme court decision blocking an executive order from new york governor andrew cuomo that restricted attendance at religious services in their neighborhoods because the pandemic ultra orthodox jewish organizations in brooklyn and queens and the roman catholic diocese of brooklyn claim. That cuomo single them out. The state pointed to the recent spike in covid nineteen cases. And then there was that alarming ultra orthodox wedding last week. The two hundreds not wearing masks. The court's decision was five. Four with its newest justice emmy coney barrett considered the fifth vote. Emily brazilan staff writer at new york times magazine and fellow at the yale law. School is here emily. Thank you for taking a break from your thanksgiving thanks. You are welcome. Glad to be here. And we should say the to litigants the ultra orthodox jewish groups and the catholic diocese were already not subject to these restrictions. Because they've been lifted there's a color system for restrictions in new york and Cova cases had obey abated in their area. But what was the argument from the court in blocking even targeted restrictions. Well the corpus arguing that new york hadn't shown that less strict measures would be enough to protect public health. Which is a pretty cursory kind of way of thinking about this. You can see the concur. Ince's by justice gorsuch as justice cavanaugh. That some of the conservative judges didn't like the idea that essential businesses which were permitted to open a new york included stores but did not include houses of worship. And i think the odd thing about the majority's analysis here is what it's comparing so the majority behaves as if people going to stores are the same as people congregating in a house of worship even though it's very unusual in store for lots of people to be sitting together or certainly singing or chanting together for a long time. That's all in a church or synagogue or a mosque and we know that that is a riskier activity. So there was no discussion of the science or scientific public health considerations in the majority's opinion. And what about chief. Justice john robertson. The three liberal justices dissenting. What did they say. Well chief justice. John roberts says there's no reason for us to decide this right now for the reason that you gave earlier new york had a lift these restrictions for now because the krona virus spread is not as bad in the city so these restrictions said that in the red zone the highest risk new york. You could have ten people in a house of worship in the orange zone. You could have twenty-five people but the catholic archdiocese in the docks synagogues that have sued. They no longer are subject to those restrictions and so she's jeff roberts was making a kind of traditional conservative judicial modesty Moved here in which he said. Look if they're subject to these restrictions again maybe they will be proved to be unduly harsh but at the moment. They're not so we don't need to step in here. And this is a classic example of a judge saying you know what. Let's leave this in the hands of public. Health officials not have judges step in to make these decisions. Unless it's absolutely necessary will be clear. What does it mean. I mean be clear. Only because i'm not able to figure this out. Temporary decision made on an emergency basis by the way when ruth bader ginsburg was on the court roberts sided with the liberals and the decision was in favor of restrictions that was when california had restrictions in place. So obviously there's been a tilt here but what does this mean for other states for new york when it comes to restrictions on houses of worship in the pandemic y- i'm kind of scratching my head about that too. I mean it looks like what the court is saying. Is that if you have businesses open you have to treat churches and other houses of worship just like those businesses but without paying attention to the greater risk that the church that you know religious service can entail and that's very strange to me because it seems so at odds with the science and what we know about the spread of coronavirus. And so you're right. This is a decision. That's a temporary restraining. Order against new york. The merits the kind of larger case is still to be thrashed out the lower courts and so one hopes going forward that there will be more attention to these apples to apples. Comparisons and figuring out what the state really needs to do to protect public health and mall many have seen the video from the acidic wedding in brooklyn this month. Hundreds packing a synagogue. No-one wearing masks mayor. Bill de blasio said or organizers will find fifteen thousand for violating restrictions. And so we're keeping an eye on that to see what happens. There might be any kind of consideration of
Supreme Court blocks strict COVID-19 restrictions on some New York houses of worship
"Virus cases surge across the nation. The U. S Supreme Court has signaled a major shift in its approach to pandemic restrictions, siding with individual and religious freedoms over public health, and it involved a legal battle in New York. Sharply divided court has temporarily blocked the state from reimposing capacity limits for houses of worship in covert hot spots. Correspondent Aaron Carter Ski reports. The Brooklyn diocese said its churches have not been the cause of any outbreaks and successfully argued capping attendance at 10 worshippers in neighborhoods with high infection rates violated the First Amendment. The bishop of Brooklyn, said he escalated the legal fight to the Supreme Court because, as he put it, what could be more essential than safely gathering and prayer in a time of pandemic. The court previously deferred to local leaders on Corona virus. These restrictions, but this time, the 5 to 4 conservative Majority said. Even in a pandemic, the constitution cannot be put away and for gotten All the Diocese of Brooklyn shears the decision, Governor Cuomo is downplaying to relevant from any practical impact. Because the zone That they were talking about has already been moved. It expired last week. So I think this was really just an opportunity for the court to express It's Philosophy and politics, and he has that the decision isn't final because the case is still under appeal. Similar challenges of pandemic capacity limits on houses of worship were narrowly rejected by the court over the summer. But that was before the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who's since been replaced by Amy Cockney, Barrett.

Senate on track to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to Supreme Court despite Democrats efforts to block
"Democrats argued the winner of the presidential election Should choose the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is replacement. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer blasted Republicans for rushing the process to confirm Barrett during an election year even though they wouldn't do the same. Four years ago, when the president Obama nominated Merrick Garland, confirming a lifetime appointment this late into a presidential election season is outrageous. It is even more galling, of course, because nearly every Republican in this chamber led by the majority leader four years ago refused.

Amy Coney Barrett & The State of SCOTUS
"So the topic I want to go to now is on the question timing the fact that this nomination is coming rather late in the fourth year of a president's term has made it controversial in fact, timing of just. Nominees to nominations to the supreme. Court has been controversial now for four or five years for a variety of reasons. So that's the first question. I would like each of you to tell me your position on on the question. Should the Senate be voting on a nomination to the Supreme Court right now sire you yes or no on that? I. Mean Yes. John All right cy you are yes. On the same question Irwin should the Senate be voting on a Justice of the supreme? Court now yes or no no amy honeybear bear should not be confirmed at this time. All right. Thank you I. Want to go first use for your reasons. Why are you a? Yes on the on the question of the timing of the nomination right now well, on the question of timing I think the Senate has the authority to consent the president is nominated someone. I don't see any reason why the Senate Caq Senate is doing other things it's it's considering thrown a virus relief. Of course, it can legislate until the members leave. and. So nothing nothing prevents the president from nominating someone nothing prevents Senate from acting upon that nomination and I think there three positions John. I think one position is you must vote on the nomination I. think that was Erwin's position for years ago. A second position is you can vote on the nomination, but you shouldn't that might ear ones position today and I the the middle position, which is you can vote on the nomination and you should. Thank your ticket back to you. So what I hear size saying is the Senate has every legal and constitutional right to be doing this now. They, certainly have the legal and constitutional right to do it, but they shouldn't do it. This is stunning hypocrisy by the Republicans for years ago Senator Mitch McConnell said, the American people should have a voice in the selection and the next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancies should not be filled into we have a new president. Antonin Scalia died in February two, thousand sixteen. President Obama named Mira Garland for that seat in March of two thousand sixteen. There was eight months before the election was to be held in the Republicans wouldn't hold hearings or wouldn't hold about Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September eighteenth of twenty twenty, and already the Republicans are looking to fill that seat. There is historical precedent. On October twelfth eighteen sixty four chief justice Roger Tawny died the president Abraham Lincoln didn't try to fill the vacancy in the month before the election or nineteen fifty-six Justice Sherman Minton resigned from the court but President Eisenhower didn't try to pick the successor instead an October fifteenth. He made a recess appointment of a Democrat William Brennan. So whoever won the election would pick the successor? Alright let. Let me jump in because I I WANNA give cya chance to respond to some of what you're saying. So so I think we heard from Irwin saying that. eight months. was enough of a lead time and they were talking about the case of Merrick Garland back in two thousand sixteen. But that one month one and a half months is too short and he sites precedent of other examples where presidents had more of that timeframe. So what's your response to that? I think are ones making a slightly different point I think if. They. Can See had risen eight months ago I think are only making the same exact point, which is what's good for the goose is good for the Gander. So it's not really a question of timing. There's plenty of time as Irwin and other people now there there's GonNa be a vote in the Senate. The point is about equity I. Think the point is about precedent in Irwin has some precedents would, of course, you can go back to previous administrations in sight other presidents. John Marshall was appointed days before John Adams left the Presidency Steven Briar was nominated and appointed to the circuit court after Jimmy Carter lost. So there, there are precedents obviously for acting after the election. Let alone before I understand there's some raw feelings about what happened four years ago and I understand that people have flipped Irwin. Himself is flipped a apparently senator McConnell may have slipped as well. I think. It's unfortunate. This game of delaying nominations has gone on for quite a long.

Samantha Schmidt, reporter with The Washington Post. Two covers Gender says the main focus of this year's march at the nation's Capitol was the ongoing Supreme Court nominations.

Schmidt says this year's March took on an angry or vibe than in past years, with intense confrontations between anti abortion counter protesters outside the Supreme Court.

"Lessons on Friday afternoons now and every week it's a mad scramble to wrap up my work, grab his racket bottle and sneakers and get both kids out the door. Then back home an hour later for Chabad, dinner. So tennis will be on our minds. My daughter Rose is itching to play with her brother and when she's old enough, we'll give tennis a try. In New Jersey, where we live Ruth Bader Ginsburg happened to play a small role in making sure rose can play tennis one of the many stories about our legacy. This week included one by New York Times sports writer Andrew Kay. He tracked down Abby. Selden of Cape Cod. Massachusetts. Who at the age of fifteen nineteen seventy-two sued officials with the State of New Jersey and her high school in Teaneck because there was no tennis for girls no girls team not co ED team. No tennis girls. When her family contacted the ACO, you the organization connected her with a young rutgers law professor and volunteer who had just co founded the ACLU's women's Rights Project Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She had a colleague represented the family in a lawsuit charging depth. The rules barring abby and other girls from competing alongside boys violated the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment. Over time the State of New Jersey agreed to allow girls to try out for boys, teams, and the lawsuit was dropped doors across the state swung open for young female athletes. But sadly, things didn't get easier for abby. She joined the team just as she had hoped to. But the boys were cruel and faced no consequences for that cruelty during a team workout. One of them caused her to tumble down a flight of stairs leaving her bruised and unwilling to go back. It didn't stop her from playing. She fought for and won a scholarship to Syracuse and became a certified tennis pro at age twenty, one as sixty, four with two titanium knees she still plays today. Now, what struck me about Abbie's recollection is that she's pretty sure she and RPG never met in person they shared four long phone conversations and even though she only remembers bits and pieces what she does remember is the encouragement and the reassurance from the kind soft spoken woman on the other end of the line who was fighting for her. Now Max's started first grade and his teacher sends several emails a day to communicate with the students and their parents. The tagline on those emails is the famous Maya Angelou.

"And a young law student started a tumbler entitled notorious rb G. and it just her persona just kind of took off the idea of this. Small Octogenarian Grandmother, who speaking truth to power I mean it's it's funny and it's inspiring at the same time and it just kind of grew from there. Yeah basically, every every time that justice Ginsburg would do something to put herself in the news. If any any legal opinion that she wrote at any dissent in particular, you know the Internet would just go wild. It's not what you think of when you think of social media. But like that's how you know instagram pictures of her, the Merch that people started Beijing's phenomenon of tattoos you know they're just. There was just something about the juxtaposition of a soft-spoken great legal mind and you know, and of course, with the great comparison being made to the notorious B I g a a joke that Justice Ginsburg, herself seems to enjoy an amplifies by making the point that the two have so much in common because they were both born and bred in Brooklyn. You know it's like cookie and it's funny. But there's like a carnal of real substance to it because people are seeing like this little fierce intellect is speaking up and there's no longer for that the the seat for it I think actually was planted in two thousand eight which she wrote a dissent and voiced it from the bench in a major sex discrimination case. That she lost five to four in the Supreme Court which case it was called it was brought by a woman named Lilly ledbetter was worked in a tire factory in Alabama and realized years after being there somebody sent her the statistics that she was being paid like more than half less than the men who were doing exactly the same thing and so she sued. and Won a judgment it by jury and the Supreme Court struck down because they said, she didn't sue quickly enough. She didn't end Ginsburg wrote the dissent saying you know a lot of times you don't even know you're being discriminated against. You don't have the data to prove it until when you and that's not what Congress intended when it enacted the civil rights law and. It was a fiery descent that ended by saying this is now the ball is now in Congress's Court to fix this with that was an election year and it became a big campaign issue Barack. Obama, used it crusaded on it and it was the first bill that he signed. When he was president was elected president was the Lilly ledbetter act. First of all, it is fitting. That the very first bill. That I signed. The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act..

"Exactly, right and I should also say that you know the very first sex discrimination case that she handled her husband actually brought to her attention. Gregory was a tax case involving a guy who couldn't deduct the care of his aging mother under the tax code. But if he'd been a woman, he could have and the two of them took that case together he did it from the tax perspective and she did it from the sex-discrimination perspective. You all touched on it in the film but during. The election season in the runup to November twenty sixteen. Ruth Bader Ginsburg made some uncharacteristically harsh comments about candidate then candidate Donald Trump. Says back in July of two thousand sixteen. She told The New York Times quote he is a faker. He has no consistency about him. He says, whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that. Job also said quote I can't imagine what this place would be. I can't imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as president she later had to apologize for those comments it was. Thought by many that she stepped out of bounds and as a supreme, court justice should not have said, those kind of things about someone that could be president. Nina. How much how out of line was it? I remember when it happened and I said this feels weird and if that were to do it, it was out of line and it wasn't and she did it more than once in the space of three days I think she did it three times. Why did you do it? I? Have No. Idea is inappropriate after the the first time she did it, it didn't seem to get much attention it but once it was on the front page of the New York Times, Cub whom and she knew she'd made a mistake she made an apology. But of course that prompted Donald trump than I guess it was candidate trump to call her a loser. WHO's lost it and all kinds of other things but it was it was a mistake and there's no way you can take back a mistake like that except to apologize does it tarnish her legacy? No I don't think. So if she had kept it up, it would have. I. Think. You know for Julian Betsy. How much did she talk about that moment and what did she say was her mental calculus going into it. Well she after she did apologize she basically said I think it would have been best. SAID NOTHING and so she wasn't really going to elaborate. We did ask her about The idea that that somehow disqualifies her from you know sitting on cases involving the current administration and she was very forceful in saying if anybody thinks that who I might have voted for as president is going to affect the way I, do my job in interpreting the laws they do not understand how the UT basically how I work and how the judicial system works. Yeah. Yeah. You know I wanNA talk about. The notorious are BG's place in the culture right now you guys hit on it towards the end of the film but. This woman who has for her entire life been intellectual and quiet and focused is now at eighty five, a bigger star than she's ever been. Why why now and why her it's she's in a very unique moment that seems. Surprising. Yeah we think that it began in two thousand thirteen with Shelby County case. That cases? Where the Supreme Court McCarthy ruled that certain oversight of voting in states which had a history of discrimination against African Americans could be loosened because our country has changed and she wrote a stinging dissent in which she said taking away these protections is like getting rid of your umbrella in a rainstorm just because you're not getting wet..

Nine of them in a do I developed bonds that are surprising but I think Scalia he just loved people and I think like you just said he and Justice Ginsburg were intellectual equals of their height.

Very, young lawyer we had Students at Yale Law School put together a women a lot of course it was one of the first women in the law courses and the constitutional part of that we've been in the course was really being framed by the ACL US women's rights project. In other words, we're learning about what Ruth Bader Ginsburg was doing to litigate to break down. People don't re recall in the seventies. The law embodied discrimination against women. There were rules that women could do X. or Y. Women couldn't. Serve on juries women women couldn't be executors of wheels. If there was a man was contesting in the law embodied discrimination against women in very fundamental and explicit ways, and she was sort of steadfastly knocking them down and they would be a women in the law conference where all of us twenty somethings would go and and she would be the keynote speaker. And I was. Blown away she's a very soft spoken speaker and but what what the message had clarity to it, which has never dimmed an clarity to the relationship between legal discrimination and societal discrimination concern about the way women were treated and all aspects of life. Sort of breaking down what the stereotypes where you know women as mother. As child rear and men not so much and she was radically in that vision I. Love to quote a something out of her first textbook where she. talked. About how a gender discrimination traps, not just women but men. In sex roles, you know provider on the one hand childcare person on the other. And as the mother of sons. I I am thrilled that can envision being caregivers.

You know she was a a private individual and an intensely public person especially in this moment. What is it like to grieve someone close to you with this private dimension, but also it all unfolding. So openly in public over the last few days. Well, it's something that I've been through before. Justice Scalia was a dear friend for. Over forty years and When when something happens publicly, there is a difficulty to keeping private what you're thinking and feeling, but it also goes with the territory knowing people who make a mark on the world make a mark on the country, make a mark on the law.

"That's right I think that Justice Marshall's strategy with NWC P. was such a precursor to a Ginsburg did at the ACLU and so my ears perked up when he asked a question in these oral arguments because he here's someone who definitely sees what's what's transpiring in the court, which is yet another person coming forward and really pushing the constitution to become more equal. And more representative in our country in his questioning, he often really pushed the lawyers to answer directly. So I can remember a couple instances in the six tapes where the lawyer wasn't answering his question and they were kind of going in a different direction. He would come back at them and say, no I'm asking you this particular thing and I really need you to answer it and those really sucked me as interesting lessons learned for all lawyers out there i. Would imagine another character justice William O Douglas he was appointed in nineteen thirty nine by Franklin Roosevelt. Douglas. Still holds the record for the longest tenure on the supreme. Court and he wrote the majority opinion in griswold. The Connecticut which defines the right of personal privacy and was the precursor to Roe v Wade Nineteen, seventy three. But Douglas also had a reputation for being very difficult on lawyers arguing before him even those with whom he read what was RPG's experience? With Mr Justice Douglas, I love this question. So Justice Douglas didn't something really interesting in one of these cases in Ginsburg's first case before the Supreme Court where she actually had an oral argument in Frontier Radio that case resulted in a plurality of four justices who wanted to extend strict scrutiny to laws that discriminate on the basis of sex, which was the entire mission of Ginsburg women's rights, projects goals, and so it really seemed like he was gonna be. A strong and dependent vote for her side and there's this really interesting case called converse, Shelvin, which was about a Florida law that said that female widows get a special property tax exemption that's not available to male widowers and he actually switched sides and joined people who weren't as ready to side with Ginsberg's alternate project in the case, and the speculation is that it's because of his mother. So William O. Douglas grew up 'em in a house where his father. Died, when he was quite young and Kina siblings had to work help the family and you re release saw his mother struggle and so I think that's one of the reasons that he ended up going and flipping in that case in saying that this property tax exemption was actually constitutional. Oh, that's interesting. I didn't know that background on him and I'm going to ask you about that case in a bit because I believe that was her loss, right? That's right. Okay we go through all of them that would take a few more episodes, but the last justice I really WanNa talk about is Harry Blackmun. Yeah. Now he was appointed by Richard Nixon in one, thousand, nine, hundred seventy and is a great. Of How some presidents are disappointed. Court picks justice blackmun eventually became known as one of the most liberal justices on the court and was the author of the majority opinion we know in Roe v Wade..
