Born This Way Is Old Science

"The confirmation hearings for Judge Amy, CONYBEARE IT Senator Maisy. Hirano of Hawaii expressed outrage and shock that the nominee would use the term sexual preference instead of sexual orientation sexual preference announced senator. TORONTO. Is An offensive and outdated term used by anti lgbtq activists to suggest that sexual orientation is a choice. It is not after the Exchange Merriam Webster which apparently like most Americans had not gotten that Nemo with these new linguistic absolutes quickly changed the definition of sexual preference in its online dictionary. To, indicate that this wording is now offensive who knew we'll beyond the orwellianism of the literally changing the dictionary to support a political climb. It seems that Senator Hirano is the one who's actually behind the Times on this whole sexual orientation versus Sexual Preference Issue According to Dr Glenn Stanton, and then outstanding new article at public discourse. Judge Barrett's terminology is actually more in line with the latest thinking of leading gender scholars for example, Professor Sorry Van Anders at candidates Queens University has stated that. Quote sexual orientation as a term is increasingly seen as regressive because it belongs to the bio centralist project translating to English. What she saying is that the word orientation suggests that sexuality is hard wired and according to Professor Anders that's just not the consensus anymore among her peers though the whole born this way claim was once a very useful slogan to advance gay rights it no longer serves the goals of the LGBTQ. Movement years ago for instance, two scholars at Ucla question the concept of. Sexual. Orientation especially for women to instead that women's sexuality and Orientation Fluid Changeable over time and variable across social context other social scientists that Glenn Stanton quotes in his public discourse Article Call For a paradigm shift in how female sexuality is studied and described, and there've been plenty of surveys indicate that most self identified lesbians will have relationships with men. At some point. There's also a more obvious problem with the idea of a fixed orientation that's found in the very initials of the acronym especially the. Be The queue of lgbtq as political commentator Douglas Murray who identifies as gay by the way rights bisexuals continued to be viewed as some kind of betrayal from within the gay community gay men tend to believe that men who claim to be by are in fact, gays in some form of denial yet according to a pew research report from last summer bisexuals account for almost half of all LGBTQ adult in the US in fact, the authors of a new book published by Harvard University Press. Think. That male bisexuals are those who call themselves mostly straight vastly outnumber exclusively gay men. Thus they conclude the old system of gay straight or BI has as stanton puts, it outgrown its usefulness and even bigger challenge in the B. to the born. This way dogma is the T- gay rights and gay marriage were sold to us. The premise that homosexuality is hard wired maybe even genetic like race but anyone claiming transgender as an identity does. So in spite of physical and genetic realities not because. Of them and the CUE which usually stands for questioning well, that continues to evolve in both meaning and practice to include more and more sexual preferences as an identity. Well, one wonders whether Senator Horon would feel compelled to lecture the various social scientists that Glenn Stanton sites. In this article my suspicion is she wouldn't in fact, my suspicion is that Senate Arana was fed this talking point by an aide who's checking twitter and saw it as an opportunity to tar and feather judge Barrett as. A big what's ultimately revealed by her political posturing awoke language policing however is crucially important for all of us to now that phrases such a sexual orientation or sexual preference or whatever. The latest nomenclature are terms made up not to describe reality but to advance the idea that has revolutionized. So much of our culture on politics that sexual attraction and urge define and determine who we are. That's the idea we can never embrace even if we're facing outrage from a senator

"Trump's rallies are back, for example. He miraculously beat Cove in 19 and record time. Judge Barrett proved stellar. Most voters are polling. They are better off than they were four years ago. This is a stunning result to mate because we've had the pandemic. And including the pandemic. People say they're economically better off today than they were four years ago under Barack Obama and Biden, including with the pandemic. They think Trump is going to win. If most voters are saying these things It's going to be increasingly difficult to believe. The disconnect that they're intent on voting against somebody who will win and who will continue to make things better for him. It just doesn't make sense is going to vote against the guy that they think is gonna win that they Understand has made things better off for them than they were four years ago. It doesn't make sense that voters would vote against this guy again. That's what the media is asking us to believe.

Recap: Trump's NBC Town Hall And Biden's ABC Town Hall

"Town halls. Last night, ABC News George Stephanopoulos posting Joe Biden, the former vice president of the United States, now the Democrat nominee for president, Donald Trump. Meanwhile, the president of the United States was on NBC with Savannah Guthrie. Yes, There was no debate last night. Yes, it was cancelled by the debate commission. Yes, Steve Scully, the guy who was supposed to moderate the debate. It turns out, he lied about being hacked on his Twitter account. So his life isn't going too well right now, but we still got a debate. Savannah, Guthrie and President Trump were debating one another for almost the entire town hall. They were just cats and dogs all over each other the entire time. Very little time for voters toe get a chance to question the president of the United States. Although there was a funny moment. 27 listen to this woman. She's a Biden lead leaning Supporter, writes that she's leaning towards Joe Biden. Her name is Paulette Dale. And here's what she had to say the moment she had a chance to question the president of the United States question. Evening, Mr President, I have to say you have a great smile. The guy's hands. You're so handsome when you smile. Thanks. Mom was totally fan Girling. She was She was like Backstreet Boys, just like boy banding all over again, you know I don't think she's voting for Biden. I just have this hunch again. There's another producer who I think lost a jobless. There's a lot of unemployment to based on the town hall last night. It's still funny. And by the way she was being attacked, of course, like because everything is the next potential crisis. Everything's all out war. You're never allowed. Teo. You know, you give comfort to the enemy. So just You have a great smile. You should smile more. I love your smile and being destroyed for that. Well, that's a big thing on the left. You don't tell her where I'm tired of being constantly told that I should smile more because you never tell menace smile more that That's a thing for the For the women on the left. Yeah, well, maybe she was two birds. One stone She got in there last night, and it made it Was added a couple of men to the smile equation, adding President Trump to it. Oh, and last night. Also Joe Biden remember facing off against Stephanopoulos. This was a tough one cut 40. You know? Finally, Finally we get to the issue of Hunter Biden in a national setting. Here's that moment last night. That's right now it didn't come up at all. We've sighted and Garfunkel were there. How did I miss this? Nobody. Simon Garfunkel in the entire 90 minutes. 30 different question. Town Hall. Joe Biden doesn't get a single one about the newly emerging evidence that he appears tohave corrupted American foreign policy to the benefit of his family's financial interests. Not a single question about this last night, not a surprise. But ABC. Throws in with on overwhelming effort by the media and the big tech companies to suppress an important story that the New York Post has been breaking every single day for the last couple days. No, it was. It was just so amazing. And I'm glad that I watched them separately. Just because for me, I don't have the ability to just pay attention. Both. I'm afraid, miss something. So, Watson separately, I will say, though. A job in town hall. I just started playing a game on my phone because they would ask a question. And Joe Biden would start answering the question. And then he would meander through a whole bunch of different topics. Everything that was going on in his head. He would meander all over the place. I was waiting for the big giant, you know, Biden Gaff which wasn't there didn't happen. I'm just gonna float this and I could be 100% wrong. So this is just a thought that has gone through my head last night. He He was just talking so much. I thought somebody put him on Ritalin. He was just just going and go. He was taking like Barack Obama length to answer a question. Yeah, they say that he stayed for 30 minutes after the town hall and kept answering questions. He kept talking forever. ABC never heard that footage released it by the way they should. If he have cameras and a microphone on him. We should see the footage of his Q and a with the voters after that thing was done last night released Joe Biden. I do want to get to this. This. He was asked about court packing last night. Cut 45 with George Stephanopoulos. Here is here is his new answer on court packing. How about that question of expanding the court hears what you said exactly one year ago tonight at a Democratic debate, he said, I would not get into court packing. I would not packed the court. That's not what you're saying Now is the nomination of Judge Barrett Reason enough to rethink your position. What is the nomination and what I wanted to do? George? You know if I had answered the question directly, then all the focus is beyond what's Biden going to do? If he wins instead of on? Is it appropriate? What is going on now? And it should stay. This is the thing that the president loves to do always take our eye off the ball. What's his state? One of these, Peter suggested is and there's a number of constitutional scholars have suggested as well that there are at least 45 options that are available to determine whether or not you could change the way in which the court lifetime appointment takes place. Consistent, arguably. With the Constitution. I have not been a fan of court packing because I think it just generates what will happen every whoever wins. It just keeps moving in a way that is inconsistent with what is going to be manageable. So you're still not a fan, but I'm not a fan of Don't say it depends on how this turns out. Howie wins but how it's handled how it's handled. There's a hostage crisis. You don't play by my rules on packing the court how it's handled. What does that mean? We know how it's going to be handled. There's a vote on the 22nd. She's going to get confirmed me how it's going to be handled. He? That is about the clearest indication he's given yet that he intends to pack the court. Yeah, he said last night he is open to packing the United States Supreme Court. And it depends on how it's handled. He's got the gun to our heads, he says. Go ahead. You want me to pack the court approve any Cockney? Barrett put her on the Supreme Court. I'll do it. That's the answer he gave in his own marble mouth, Joe Biden Way.

Does the president have an absolute right to pardon himself? So far as I know that question has never been litigated. That question has never risen.

"Jamie Floyd on W and my C switching topics, Senator Harris asked Judge Barrett about her views on the Supreme Court decision that struck down the heart of the Voting Rights Act. In 2013 in the case, known as Shelby County versus Holder than Attorney General Eric Holder, Shelby County is Alabama, right, Jamie Drive the right state. Correct and under the act. Voting. My attacked some state and local governments with a history of voter suppression. Had to get pre clearance from the U. S Justice Department before they could change their voting laws, but no longer after that case senator head including Brian in New York, some counties in New York That's right, Senator Harris asked Judge Barrett about that, and Judge Barrett questioned the premise. Pre clearance requirement. As I understand Shelby County remains in place and what the Supreme Court held unconstitutional was the coverage formula. So some states which in 1965 had a history of discrimination, had to get pre clearance whenever they changed anything having to do with their voting procedures and other states didn't And I think Shelby County said that Congress can still pass a new coverage formula. Now, um, articulating the criteria for jurisdictions that are discriminating and requiring week pre clearance. Where The question, however, is do you agree with Chief Justice Roberts, who said voting discrimination still exist? No one doubts that. Do you agree with that statement? Senator Harris. I will not comment on what any justice said an opinion whether an opinion is right or wrong or endorse. So, Jimmy. What? Jamie, what happened there in constitutional or RIA world? I was much more taken with the real world. You know, it's first of all going back to Shelby. It was an extraordinary case. I mean, I remember how devastated John Lewis Wass in the run up to the case. Because he could see the writing on the wall. And then the case came down the descent as we've talked about Brian then and even yesterday, then to now and even yesterday, the descent from Ruth Bader Ginsburg powerful but just a descent. And the rial just it's a It's a legal opinion, but rooted in a really world dichotomy between judges who just stand in different places in America. The judges who are women, or or brown skinned, understood the world one way or even Justice briar to be fair. And then the conservative white judges. And then Justice Thomas on That side saw the world a different way. And it was really just not a meeting of the minds and the and the dissents red from the bench, which they do when they feel them passionately. Begged the conservative majority to see the world the way it still is. And you could hear Kamala Harris asking this this potential justice to see the world the way it still is. Voting discrimination still happens. Voting Ah, disenfranchisement still happens. Racial discrimination still happens. And this is a woman. Of course. Who has black Children s. Oh, that This is not to assume that she is not a good person. But this is the the economy we have in our country, Brian. It's not to assume that we are not all wanting to get to that more perfect union, But we are standing in different places on the earth. We don't experience the world in the same way. And so when you asked me, did I hear a legal conversation? Or did I hear? Ah Rhea World Political one, I saw two women. Really living in different countries and experiencing this country in very different ways, And it makes me very sad on it Troubles me deeply, both as a lawyer and as a woman and, of course as a multiracial black person. We have a call coming in from Colin, who says he's a third year law student at Stanford, and I think he's calling from Stanford, California Colin, You're on. W M I C Hi, there. Hi. Yes, fellow alone. Basically, I just wanted Teo away. You've got to tell me one thing first. Are you going in person Is Stanford law having in person classes this fall? So classes are almost all remote except the small section one out little seminar things. Basically, this Atlantic article came out by this Harvard law professor Aging for mule earlier this year called Beyond Originalism where he basically Admit that original Listen, you have been a cover for conservative outcomes, and he basically says You know, literally The dominant conservative philosophy for interpretation has served its purpose and scholars thought to develop a more moral framework that originalism has been a useful expedient. And so, you know, separate from the question of whether originalism is inherently conservative, it's mostly been used as a cover, basically for conservative outcomes. And you, I take it agree, Colin. With. Yeah, Yeah, his thesis that we need to move beyond original originalism. Well, The thing is sorry, Adrian Mule. As you know, conservative, he's saying he's a federal Yes, that's that guy. Um You know, we can even contemplate abandoning originalism because now our ideas are conservative ideas are becoming more mainstream. And I guess Jamie and Colin thank you. So much for timing in with that really interesting. We could probably say a similar thing about both quote sides on the Supreme Court. But tell me how much do you agree? So when they say no, we don't have an opinion. From the bench on any policy issues. We just have an approach to the law. It just so happens that the originalist approach that Republican presidents tend to draw from people who hold winds up being bad for the affordable care act Bad for voting rights, bad for environmental law. Bad for abortion rights and the ones who believe in the living constitution get appointed by Democratic presidents, and they turn out good for all those policy choices. You know, Colin's point is well taken as his yours, Brian, this notion that ah first, But we have to go back and note that this Federalist Society and federalism obviously goes back to our founding, but the Federalist Society and the very well organized Ah, focus on seeding the bench an and organizing our thought around judicial nominations and judicial philosophies. Is a relatively new thing. When I was in law school, the Federalist Society was really just getting started and just getting organized. But I think Colin is right that we need to respond to articles like this one and thinking like this one. I don't think we're quite at a place Brian, where we can say originalism. Has originalists thinking has completely overtaken our judiciary and our Supreme Court and all of the court's below, despite the work of Mitch McConnell and President Trump Ah, And I think there's always been this tension in our courts between those who would look at the text and those who would seek to live within the original front structures and framework of our founders who were, of course, white men with a particular interests in mind to protect And those who believe in the living breathing constitution, which you cite Brian, and that's the tension of our democracy on DH. I hope it ever will be. So I I don't I don't concede to this Atlantic article or to the federalists or to or to the thesis. Of Adrian Ver mule. I think Colin are our law student is more more on target. Said, like a Stanford alum, supporting the next generation coming up Brian Lehrer and Jamie Floyd on WNBC, breaking down the Amy Cockney battered confirmation hearings and just before we bring on Ruth Marcus from the Washington Post. Who's been watching very closely and is going to join us with some observations we played earlier. Some settled law hierarchies, quote unquote that I thought were interesting today. And here's how Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana kind of turned those on their head in his opening line of questioning right after Senator Harris was done with hers today. Are you a racist? I am not a racist Senator Kennedy. You sure? I'm positive. Do you support in all cases, corporations over working people. I do not. And I think if you look at my record, you will see cases in which I have decided in favor of plaintiffs, not corporations. Are you a ganged Clean air. Bright water..

One issue that came up multiple times is an anti abortion rights newspaper ad. The judge Barrett signed in 2006. I'm a public official. And so while I was free to express my private views at that time, I don't feel like it is appropriate for me anymore because of the canons of conduct to express an affirmative you at this point and I. Meanwhile, Wisconsin senior senator singing Cockney barrettes praises the attitude of a judge someone who apply the law. As it is written, and she won't alter it. She's not going to be an activist judge to be justice and that that's on welcome, Senator Ron Johnson says he will vote to confirm Barrett if and win her nomination comes to a vote. Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin, though, says the entire process is still unjust. I believe the next president and the next Senate that's needed in January. Teo do that nomination and do that confirmation, respectively. Baldwin and Johnson joining W T M. J. Steve's graffiti during W. T M. J

"Made during this pandemic and many, many other things that it was a very, very good bill. It was what we could agree upon. But I would note that Senate Democrats did. Block those provisions that would have gone to help families like Veronica and others in Iowa that are suffering from the pandemic and are, of course our greatest sympathies to those that have been impacted all across the United States. Eso, Mr Chairman. I would like to enter into the record. There's three letters here for the committee committee and an op ed a letter support from 40 Christian women's scholars. The second is a letter from a group of governors all across the country, including our own. Iowa's governor, Kim Reynolds, strongly supporting the nomination of Judge Barrett. The third Issa record letter for from Tracy Lovett, who was with judge barrel while they both served on this goat's Clark class of 1998. And then there's also an editorial by Derek Mueller, a professor of law at the University of Iowa College of Law. That appeared in that does that of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and this professor had Judge Barrett as his evidence professor at Notre Dame Law school, and he does say she treated all lost students from all backgrounds with dignity and respect. If I could have this entered into the record with that Thank you and Judge Barrett. I am pro life. I am pro life, and I see that judge by your faith and as has been aptly pointed out many times over by our colleagues across the aisle that That you are pro life. But once again, can we reiterate your stance as a judge? So as a judge, my personal moral beliefs which I have not I can think of. I'm not expressing them publicly right now, because now that I am a judge, I can't sign statements like that one that I did 15 years ago. But my policy views my moral convictions. My religious beliefs do not bear on how I decide cases, nor should they would be, and it would be in conflict with my judicial. And I know that you consider yourself to be an originalist as you discussed earlier with Senator Sass, and it seems that adhering to the originals originalist view would naturally laid a judge to carry out her constitutional duty of impartiality when applying the law and adhering to this philosophy as a judge takes real courage. And the courage you have displayed thus far as a federal judge prompted a coalition of groups to send me a letter supporting your nomination citizen Be Anthony list led this coalition letter that I would like to submit to the committee for the record. And I know this is going to make a number of members on the committee just very squeamish because they are a pro life organisation. But with this in mind, I want to take a moment to read part of this letter. Quote Judge Barrett has proven herself to handle disputes impartially approaching cases as a textual list and originalist who loves the Constitution. She has a jurist who rightly leaves politics to politicians and legislating toe legislators and I'll quote further. Quite apart from whatever policy views she may have on the matter. Judge Barrett reasons to a proper result in each case before her as a federal appellate judge appropriately following controlling precedent. In February, 2019. She joined a panel decision upholding a law creating a buffer zone around abortion facilities. This buffer or bubbles own case being referred. Teo is Price versus city of Chicago. Judge Barrett. Could you please give us an overview of the city ordinance that was challenged here and explain how precedent established by the Supreme Court? Hill decision influenced your reasoning of the case. Yes, I was on a panel. There is a challenge Teo, a Bubble zone ordinance, which essentially means It it wass To describe it. It limited where abortion protesters could go to do sidewalk counseling or leafleting with the things that they identified as the activities they desired to undertake in the expression of speech. Outside of the abortion clinic on the Supreme Court has a case called Hill versus Colorado. And that case said that such bubbles owns especially because this one in Chicago was nearly identical. As I recall with the one that was, it's taken Hill. Said that they did not violate the first Amendment. And so our panel you know we're bound by that President. Our panel applied that President and so as you say That was a case involving abortion. But my duty as a judge is to follow the governing law and that governing law in that case was killed. Absolutely. And thank you for that clarification, And I think it was important to point that out because in that case using precedent it did favor That abortion clinic. Is that correct? That is correct. Thank you very much. Esso. I would like to submit this for the record. Thank you. Now turning Tio topic of agency rulemaking, really sexy topic something that we have not something that we have talked about As of yet. But as I mentioned yesterday, when Congress makes laws that overstep the Constitution, it can be felt all across the state of Iowa, whether it's in the streets of Council Bluffs, Iowa or in the farm fields over in Clinton County. But Congress isn't the only body capable of overstep executive agencies can be just as guilty as the of this as we've seen in Iowa. In 2018 as a judge on the seventh Circuit, You help decide a Clean Water Act case, specifically Orchard Hill Building Company versus Army Corps of Engineers. The decision found that the federal government did not provide enough evidence to justify its decision to deem 13 acres of Illinois wetlands as a water of the U. S. I'm very supportive of a less expansive definition of Wotus and encouraged by how you approach this decision. Farmers in Iowa are also encouraged by this development. I believed then, as I do now that the Obama administration's clean water rule or the Wotus rule was unconstitutional, But I also want to talk to you about Agency rulemaking that I believe was constitutional, which is illustrated in a case that the 10th Circuit Court has recently ruled on specifically Renewable Fuels Association versus EPA. At issue in this case were three exemptions the granted to oil companies allowing them to avoid their obligations to blend renewable fuel under the Clean Air Act CE renewable fuels standard. These oil refinery exemptions, which were not disclosed to the public, were challenged by renewable fuel producers. Who said that they on Lee found out about the waivers because of investigative news reports. The 10th circuit concluded in this case that the renewable fuels producers were injured. By the way, is exemptions and thus had standing to sue..

"But I want to talk now about Her personal views on abortion rights, because that part of this is knowable, and I want to turn to Sarah McCammon for that NPR national correspondent Barrett was directly asked by Democrat Dianne Feinstein today about whether Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided. Let's listen to that exchange right now. Do you agree with Justice Scalia's view that row was wrongly decided. So, Senator, I do want to be forthright and answer every question so far as I can. I think on that question, you know, I'm gonna invoke Justice Kagan's description, which I think is perfectly put when she was in her confirmation hearing. She said that she was not going to grade precedent or give it a thumbs up or thumbs down. And I think in an area where President continues to be pressed and litigated, as is true of Casey, it would be particularly actually be wrong in violation of the cannons for me to do that as a sitting judge. Sama came in. I mean, we routinely see judicial nominees at their confirmation hearings steer clear of stating any conclusions of any kind of how they would rule on any controversial issues, especially those involving Precedent. We just heard, Barrett invoked the name of Justice Kagan. She also invoked the name of Justice Ginsburg a few times referring to what's known as the Ginsburg rule. What is that rule? Well. This is a comment that Justice Bater Ginsberg had made, saying that a judge sworn to decide impartially impartially can offer no forecast no hints because, she said that would show disregard for the specifics of the particular case. And that has been appointed to buy advocates of Judge Barrett in this hearing or leading up to this hearing as a reason that she should steer clear of these hot button issues like abortion, But as our colleague Nina Totenberg has reported a couple of years ago Ginsberg really did actually get quite specific in her confirmation hearings about some of these issues specifically about abortion and reproductive rights. And, you know, she said that the right to marry the right to procreate or not. The right to raise Children that the state has a very high bar for interfering with those decisions s O. That's some important context for that rule. Nonetheless, this is a common strategy as Nina was saying Justice Cavanagh, Justice Gorsuch and others in their confirmation hearings have all taken pretty similar strategies to point to precedent and to decline to say how they would rule specifically on an issue like abortion, Right. It's almost become a ritual now. Well, why don't we know already about Barrett's personal feelings about abortion rights? You can just lay out what we can glean based on her rulings for speeches prior testimony, her scholarship also, there was a 2006 Add that she signed onto several years ago. Go and give us an idea. Yeah, And you know, I am every other reporter who covers this. We've been poring over these comments and statements and some of them It's hard to kind of read the tea leaves and no, you know what what to make of them, because, well, she's been asked about this issue before. Sometimes she's writing speculatively about the way potential legal arguments could play out. And that doesn't necessarily tell you how she would rule but a few things we know, we know she's a conservative Catholic. Of course, that's come up. And the both. She and her defenders have defended her against criticism on those grounds. We didn't see her get attacked by Democrats for her faith in this hearing. I think Democrats are being very careful about that. But aside from her faith, Vera and her husband have been criticised for signing off on an ad in 2006 for an anti abortion rights group in Indiana, where she's been a professor at Notre Dame Law School. That called for quote, putting an end to the barbaric legacy of Roe v. Wade. We heard her address that today and she's reiterated repeatedly that her, she says her personal views on the matter will not dictate how she rules. We heard Democratic senators pushback against that idea that and note that of course, people's views do tend to inform how they look at these issues. But That's been barrettes line on that her record as an appeals court judge is limited. There were a couple of cases where effectively she sided with e anti abortion. Position on some cases challenging Indiana abortion restrictions, although without getting too far into the legal details. That was an in bank review, and you know it, basically she, she said. Let's take some more time and consider some arguments for these laws. And who knows how they that would have played out because she was in the descent. They're in another case, though, involving buffer zones around abortion clinics. To protect patients from protesters. She voted to uphold precedent that allowed for those buffers owns to remain in place, so you might call it a somewhat mixed record their ride by standing on the side there said she said in that opinion Or she signed on to this opinion by Judge Sykes, who said they were bound to To uphold these restrictions because the Supreme Court had upheld almost identical restrictions, but that they thought the court should reconsider the issue. I think the most important the most important thing to think about when you're thinking about barrettes record on abortion is really what President Trump and vice president Pence have said, which is They would only choose justices that would oppose abortion rights that would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. Now, she said, she made no such commitment to the president or anyone else. But that was That was what President Trump campaigned on. And he has no consistent record of appointing conservative justices throughout the judicial system, and Nina or Amy on that larger question of Can president make deals with Supreme Court nominees like promises extract promises from them on how they would rule on particular issues before nominating them. First of all, what is the protocol around that? And are those deals ever enforced anyway? They can't be enforced. They have lifetime came once they're confirmed there there. I know of no case of a deal. Oven, explicit deal aiming off some way before we were alive covering the Supreme Court. But I know of no such Deal. But what has been true it used to be. You know that you that the people who were appointed to the Supreme Court, we're not necessarily judges before they were often political figures. They were often Cabinet members and other members of an administration who are widely respected for their legal knowledge. They were solicitors general argued, argued for an administration. Like Elena Kagan. But that really has not been the case since Ronald Reagan became president. And he brother uniformly. Wanted to pick judges so that he could see what they're judicial philosophy. Wass and other presidents have followed that philosophy. In addition to the fact that it looks great when you're appointing somebody with some judicial experience. And if we could just hold on one second, we're going to take a quick break for stations..

"She's humble from New Orleans and now the Midwest. I would be the only sitting justice who didn't attend school at Harvard or Yale. But I am confident that Notre Dame could hold its own and maybe I could even teach them a thing or two about football. I would have said, and maybe I could teach him a thing or two about the law. You know, football. It's a fun little thing. Harvard and Yale You know, they don't really have Ivy League football that they they throw it around and stuff but its not Notre Dame football and so she did it, But I think she should have also said it may be a thing or two about the law just to be A little little bit sassy. And then she gave to conservative Democrats Don't hear this big. Well, first of all, they don't believe anybody because when you yourself lie all the time, and you expect your political leaders on your and Democrats toe lie all the time. You assume that everybody else is lying to you know that Joe Biden is lying about everything. Candle house was lying about everything. But it is horrible and finish. Kamala is is the Finnish word for horrible, So keep that in mind. But Judge Barrett kind of laid out I, I suppose in short a bit of a judicial philosophy. In a nutshell. Courts have a vital responsibility to the rule of law, which is critical to a free society. The courts are not designed to solve every problem are right every wrong in our public life, the policy decisions and value judgments of government. Must be made by the political branches elected by an accountable to the people. The public should not expect courts to do so. And courts should not try. That is the approach that I have strived to follow as a judge on the seventh Circuit. Well, how about that? What a great idea. That's like being a judge, Jeff, we're gonna take a pass. We're gonna move that other thing and we've got to take a break here and go ahead. But there's Judge Barrett laying out with the role of a judge's..

"Children of all ages come to kind of service Shames T. Harris Senate hearings to nominate a Cockney Baird are going on right now, and the Democrats are trying to behave themselves were slipping up a little bit here and there, but we suspect it's going to get hot and heavier. A little further into the process, and a lot of things are being said about Amy Cockney Barrett and that of negative things. Let's talk to somebody who actually knows the justice. Ah, Laura woke is an attorney in Washington, D. C. She is the first blind woman to clerk for the Supreme Court. She served as a clerk for U. S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas during the 2019 term. And Laura is a former student of Judge Barrett at Notre Dame. Welcome to the center ring of the conservative circus. Laura. Let's get right to the point is Judge Barret now Or has she ever been part of a secret handmaiden coat? You know, I have to tell you I've been listening to the hearing this morning. And of course I was glued all day yesterday. And I'm very happy to report that. No senators have remotely gone close to that line of questioning. Actually, Senator find sign that chief Chief proponent of that line of questioning is wrapping up her questions to the judge right now didn't go there, and I think it's a great sign because it shows me that thie senators may have learned their lesson from They're how inappropriate those blinds and questions last time and how badly it was received. Well, yeah, well, you had Senator Feinstein is saying, you know, the dog might depict people like whoa. And I think you may be right. I think that the senator's humor has reigned in the craziness because they do realize how damaging that landed. Question was for for chemically, Barrett and also for Cavanaugh, You've called Judge Barrett in answer to your prayers. Can you tell us Yes. So I and completely blind and I, When I got the Notre Dame I was experiencing a huge technological meltdown on guy rely on technology to do basically everything. So I was really in a tough spot. Judge Barrett. All the qualities that everyone else is getting to see now were things that stood out to me immediately that she could help me so I went to her, and she just came in like a I don't know, like a world a positive whirlwind and took my problem and solve my problem and got me the technology. I needed very quickly. I really think that that experience because it allowed me to actually focus on my schoolwork and excel. I truly think that if it hadn't been for her, I might not have ever been able to even applied to click on the Supreme Court because you know you don't start out well in law school. Who's to say how the rest of your career will play out. We're talking to Laura Volker is she Is she worked on the Supreme Court clerks on the Supreme Court has a relationship with a judge Barrett. You know, you recently rolled the warmth and compassion that Judge Baird has shown me on so many occasions flow from the same wellspring of faith for which and, you know we're concerned that she's going to get excoriated over so far. She she hasn't but tell us more about the warm. Think of passionate you've seen Yeah, I'd love to. So Judge Barrett is just a deeply deeply carrying person when she is when you're talking to her 100% of her attention is focused on you. She is a woman who has really characterized by service and love of neighbor. There's a wonderful anecdote of another co clerk of hers when when Judge Barrett was working on the Supreme Court Where Judge Barrett took a Saturday and went down to serve at an AIDS hospice that was run by an order of Catholic sisters. So these are the things that are emblematic of her faith. They call her out of herself to be a person of service and a person of love to everyone that she interacts with. Andi. I just think it it shows how her face is such a positive. It's one of the things that make her such an amazingly wonderful human being as a person. You know you You clerked for the Supreme Court. I imagine that you worked with Ah Ah Justice Thomas Clarence Thomas, who was also described as a very wonderful kind person is amazing that that is what is under attack by No, I completely agree. I think that Really? Yes, I would say Joy is a common adjective that describes both Justice Thomas and and Judge Barrett joy and warmth and I'm so privileged that I've gotten to experience experience of both and how the face animates that and allows them to be such giving giving people I want to thank you for sharing that story, especially with the Justice Thomas because I mean you won't talk about somebody who was like reviled and we don't even have an opportunity when he does put out information or like A short movie about him. It doesn't get talked about because it seems like the opposition has to demonize these people because they're afraid that somehow their faith is going to influence their decisions. And I think there is something to that. But also the two justices were talking about our very originalist in interpreting the Constitution. Yeah, well, and actually, I'm glad you mentioned the documentary You know, there's a documentary called Created Equal That really works Box through Justice Thomas's life. And I highly recommend it does a great job of telling a story. And as you're saying, showing how he's safe, you know, informed his life and and showed and gave him the strength to overcome obstacles. I think we're seeing that same fate that play in Judge Barrett's life right now. She is in her remarks this morning, talked about how grateful she is that she knows so many people are praying for her. And she she has just been able to conduct yourself with so much grace and poise, Just like the justice did in his confirmation hearings, and I really again I just I think that that really speaks volumes to.

Amy Coney Barrett set for Day 2 of confirmation hearing

"The Senate Judiciary Committee returns this morning for day two of Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. On the first day. Yesterday, we heard opening statements from members of the committee. Republicans made the case for Barrett's confirmation. Here's Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham. There's nothing unconstitutional about this process. This is a vacancy that's occurred there tragic loss of a great woman. And we're going to feel that they could see with another great woman. Democrats, meanwhile, said they're Republican colleagues are rushing this effort, and they tried to paint Barrett as a threat to the affordable care act. Now today, members will get their chance to ask her questions directly. We've got NPR Congressional reporter client great solace with us this morning. Hi, Claudia. Hi, Rachel. So what did each party the members of the committee Democrats and Republicans? What did they try to accomplish in the first day hearings yesterday? This was an opportunity for senators to frame her nomination. They did most of the talking. After all, Republicans painted bared as a worthy successor to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but in the mold of barrettes mentor and that's the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Democrats underscored the rush to confirm Barrett in the midst of a pandemic. Remember Two of the GOP members tested positive for the illness this month, and one Mike Lee of Utah, showed up yesterday, less than two weeks after his diagnosis. He also showcased what at what's at stake. Senator Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, who also sits on the committee dialed in to participate. Let's take a listen By replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with someone who will undo her legacy. President Trump is attempting to roll that Americans rides the decades to come. So Democrats highlighted concerns that barrettes nomination is being rushed so she could be seated in time if there's a dispute tied to the presidential election and to rule on an affordable care act case that will come before the court next month. So they shared worries that she could limit the A or abortion rights tied to the landmark case. Roe v. Wade. Republicans, meanwhile, tried to portray Democrats is anti Catholic, even though not one raised the religious belief issue right so yesterday was all about opening statements, and Barrett herself gave her statement what we learned for that. She said. Although she was nominated to succeed Ginsberg, no one could ever take her place. She said she closely followed Scalia's judicial philosophy. She clerked for him. Let's take a listen. His judicial philosophy was straightforward. A judge must apply the law as it is written. Not as she wishes it worked. Sometimes that approach met reaching results that he did not like. But as he put it in one of his best known opinions, that is what it means to say that we have a government of laws and not of men. She also noted that the courts have a vital responsibility to enforce the rule of law, but that policy decisions are better left to the legislative branch. So today, the official questioning begins, right and presumably, we're going to hear a lot of what we heard yesterday on the affordable care act, but in the form of questions to Judge Barrett, yes, members will question Barrett on our position on a lot of these key issues such as health care, an abortion rights. Each senator will get 30 minutes to question Barrett. So with 22 members, this could prove to be a much longer day. Republicans will use this to highlight her conservative judicial record. While Democrats will grill Barrett on conflicts of interest and how she'd rule on future cases will press her again recused herself in some of these instances, such as the day or if there's a dispute with the election, But as she's done during private calls with Democrats, you'll likely declined to make such commitments or share how she might rule on these issues

"President Trump's nominee to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg went through today day one of confirmation hearings. News nation Washington correspondent Ashley Kits, supporters and opponents of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett demonstrated outside while inside the Supreme Court nominee appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Democrats like Senator Cory Booker painted a dim picture of how barrettes confirmation could impact the nation. States may write laws. They could subject women who have miscarriages. Two investigations to ensure they didn't have abortions. California Senator Dianne Feinstein focused on Barrett's potential role in striking down the affordable care Act. The case that's before the Supreme Court next month, Judge Barat You've been critical of Chief Justice Roberts for his 54 opinion. Upholding the law. Although Democrats say the Supreme Court seat should not be filled this close to an election, Republican Chairman Lindsey Graham says there's no reason to delay She's been a circuit court judge at the seventh Circuit. Since 2017. She was confirmed to that position. To buy parts with about partisan vote. She has heard hundreds of cases in that capacity. For her part, Judge Barrett promises to be impartial. I believe Americans of all backgrounds deserve an independent Supreme Court. That interprets our constitution and laws as they're written. I believe I conserve my country By playing that role.

What will the Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation mean for the 2020 election?

"We can talk about murder boards. Because Amy Cockney Barrett has just being doing them. I've never heard of murder balls before One of our guests was saying it's the American phrase for a Nintendo practice interrogations where you get people to take you through what you're about to go through. If you're about to go through, for example, the confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court because she is President Trump's pick to fill the vacancy of Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Her appointment would cement Conservative majority on the Supreme Court with enormous political implications. Eyes like nothing seen in U. S history, so close to a presidential election, his Barbara Plata Amy Cockney. Barrett is a dream nominee for those on the right, but it is my honor to nominate One of our nation's most brilliant And gifted legal minds to the Supreme Court Appeals court judge is a formidable intellect, a devout Catholic, a supermom with seven Children. While I am a judge, I'm better known back home as a room, parent, carpool driver and staunchly conservative, although at this White House ceremony, she distanced herself from partisan divides. If confirmed, I would not assume that role for the sake of those in my own circle. And certainly not for my own sake. I would assume this role to serve you. It's just weeks from the election, but nothing is getting in the way of the rush to confirm the new Supreme Court Justice, the third nominated by President Trump, the stakes are just too high. Processes nomination consistent with rules. And I look forward to coming days will be a lot of fun. It will be fun for them. See Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and other Republicans because it's an unprecedented chance to secure a conservative majority on the court for a generation. And also to recharge the election campaign by energizing the base help Amy Barrett and President Trump Fight back stand up for conservative values Republicans But also Democrats have adjusted their campaign adverts to address the unexpected vacancy on the Supreme Court is rushing through a Supreme Court nominee to do just that step away care from millions of Americans and pre existing condition protections for Democrats. This is a nightmare, a job for life. A court that sets the nation's social and cultural direction on issues like gay rights, gun control, abortion and Obama care. Judge Barrett is very fair, but fans of Judge Conti Barrett are convinced she's the best candidate for the job. She's a popular law professor and Laura Walk was one of her students. Judge Barrett is not swayed by any type of personal preferences or things like that again. Witness that in the classroom no one ever knew what Judge Barrett thought about an issue. She never let her students he never Pressured them to think a certain way. Everything was hyper focused on the law. Democrats don't have the votes to stop this, and they're furious about the politics. Today I am nominating Chief Judge Merrick Brian Garland to join the Supreme Court. In 2016, Republicans blocked President Obama from filling a Supreme Court seat because it was an election year. But now that they're in power, they've changed their tune. And the conservative media is almost giddy with excitement. This is going to have a massive impact on the American judiciary, thus gonna have a massive impact. On American culture and society. If Donald Trump secures the Supreme Court seat, even if he doesn't win the election, his presidency will be deemed a success by the ideological right and by evangelical Christians. That's why they voted for him, and it will be remembered as a turning point for the nation on some of the issues that matter the most to Americans.

"I've ever dipped below 90. We don't have any recordings here that that's right. Yeah, about here at the White House or hear anything below 90 just to fall upon her question. No is below 94% was it wasn't done in the low eighties or anything. So he said. It was below 94. It wasn't down into the low eighties or anything that leaves a wide range of readings. That would be troubling. What if it was Mid eighties. Whatever was high eighties. Those air troubling, too. It sure does. And in fact, he is speaking so carefully there and the same thing he did on Saturday, where he was dodging the idea of whether the president received something election. It also really fixating on the day or the location rather than wanted to give it just a simple yes or no. A blanket statement Answer. That clip clip you just played raises all sorts of questions. His auction level had dropped to the low nineties or certainly into the eighties in upper middle at Millie's. That's a real concern. And it goes to show the credibility issues that this that this White House and now this medical team face on Saturday, right after the doctors gave Rosie a section of the president's condition staff, Mark Meadows pulled some reporters aside myself included. And gave it a much more dire assessment. More somber assessment, saying that things were the president was a tougher shape that the doctors had said. What did you do that? Why would Mark Meadows who's also in the business of being a publicist for the president? Contradict the doctors and give the public the more realistic but less rosy assessment. Why would he do that? He hasn't explained his motivations that the Meadows is a fascinating case study. I mean that the two theories are are simply that the first is that he felt the doctors were not presenting an accurate picture, and he was trying to therefore be helpful to reporters. Maybe it was even well intentioned like, Hey, you know, this is this is really what's going on here that you know that because we know At the public. The news conference as much of that was meant to give the public in the world and of the present condition. It was also ended audience of one the president himself who wants to hear that he's doing well, who wants to hear that? He's in good spirits, in part, doctor say, to reassure him, but also because he wants to project that idea. To the country s o. I think that that Meadows, though perhaps thought the doctors went too far and wanted to give Ah more clear eyed picture of that. Also, perhaps more cynical cake would be if he says the president at that moment is tougher. Help that if you know that a few days later and the president is able to leave the hospital, let's say You know he would save the healthy beat back the virus. What a great comeback story and sort of Part of the whole theme that the White House is trying to present, frankly, since March. But Meadows was then, uh, let's just say, gotten in trouble with the president for doing so on. Then he has taken a very different tone. Since that moment, he has been sent on several interviews in which he has said the president is doing great and the president has is beating back the virus and they're feel very good about his condition, And in fact, this morning, he suggested the president I could even leave Walter Reed Medical Center and return to the last today, he said. It was not your thing. But he said he was quote, optimistic that the president could be discharged today, which would be a much more accelerated timetable that we were really led to believe. Man with a P. White House correspondent. Jonathan ll Amir. Anna Karina in downtown Manhattan. You're on W m. I say thank you for calling. Hi. Oh, hi. Hi. There. You're on the air. Oh, hi. Uh, good morning. Notice it, And I find Amy bred to be absolutely irresponsible to bring seven Children into the White House in front of all these people. Without wearing masks in middle of a pandemic. Also, I think I did that because she just wanted to please trump and the party and I don't think a person like that should be representing the American people because we are not Republican and we're old. We Well, Dinna believe and Trump. So I find her to be very, very much irresponsible. Ask Kelly and come way the same way. It's okay. They got their virus that was a choice. Bring it to her door. Claudia, that story, irresponsible as well. Anna Karina. Thank you so much for your call. So let's talk about Amy Cockney Barrett. I read that she herself tested negative in recent days, but she had Cove it in the summer. Was that on Ly newly revealed after the president got it. It was indeed the justice Barritt. Judge Barrett on her husband. Both contracted were diagnosed with Kobe over the summer. She was asymptomatic. He had very mild symptoms. And they have both tested negative since that event last Saturday at the White House s O. What we don't know precisely. We don't have estates on their Children, so we won't speculate there. But you're right. But certainly the caller was corrected, and none of them will worry masks. They were very, very few. In attendance at that have been on Saturday, which may indeed have been the Super shredder event. Ah, warm asked everyone seen images Now they were tightly packed in there on the one and they were in close quarters for the inside portions of this event as well in the White House diplomatic room, which is a very small space. Reception there for for Judge Barrett. And it should be noted that this outbreak, which perhaps was stemmed from that event has jeopardized maybe her confirmation as three Republican senators, including two who sit on the Judiciary Committee have contracted covert 19. Senate Majority. McConnell has suspended activity or to the Senate for the next week or two. But yet it is still going for this hearing. They're the exception as he says that this can still be done and he says safely. Democrats, Of course you're objecting to this. They believed that if it's too dangerous Hold the whole Senate there that they shouldn't be going forward. These hearings It raises questions. That's exactly how this will come about how they will be conducted with Parsons. Forces of this be perhaps be remote, but certainly, at least for now that rules the Senate are the votes have to be done in person. And we'll talk more about that, with justice Senator Jamie Floyd covers the Supreme Court coming up right after Jonathan but on the timeline They say she had it in the summer. While the summer just ended on September 22nd on ly four days before her unveiling event, So is it known when, in the summer she had it or if Judge Barrett herself could have been patient zero? Belief was that it was in August. I think it was when she had it. There is not a suggestion that she was patient zero. This was this was a colleague of hers in Indiana and Illinois had suggested this was something that happened earlier and I don't have the exact time frame in front of me. But at least I know I don't think there is a fence that she is the patient zero A friend of mine said to me about Judge Barrett. If she's so pro life, why would she allow a dense mask list political event? To take place on her behalf. Has anyone asked her anything like that? She hasn't done any interviews since that moment, but that's certainly a reasonable question. Ah, political strategist to me over the weekend noted that Justice Skins, Berg's final wish her dying wish, perhaps or one of her last wishes was that her successor not be named until after the election, and the strategist grimly joked. Well, that's what you get. Crossing Justice Ginsberg. He may have a Supercenter event at the back, and I know you're a White House correspondent..

"That leftism is a jealous God, It's a jealous religion. It's very funny, but many of the people on the left, sir just jealous in general, and there's a lot of jealousy. Other people's stuff. That is, that is that that might be the defining characteristic is a matter of fact. You know, there are people now saying that Judge Barrett because she believes in God and praise that's like the worst vice they can say about her is that she praised too much, but she's got these kind of kooky views. Meanwhile, these are the same people who say, for instance, that a man can magically become a woman and we should inject Children full of hormones. Because of this and a few. You disagree. You're a bigot. You know that that view that's considered not to be a religious view. That's supposed to be sacrosanct. But the idea that perhaps you know we have natural rights endowed by our creator that is kind of kooky and religious and and should not be permitted anywhere near the court. I wonder if some religious illiteracy is playing playing some role in this, you know, and that's that's why they don't see that what they're talking about, might amount To an unconstitutional religious test. I want to get back to the constitutionalism of this for a second, because, as you say, we've been disappointed by so many judges, and we thought we had some real winners and then actually on this question of gender ideology, Judge Gorsuch just just disappointed a lot of conservatives within the past couple of months. Amy Barrett has not been on the bench very long. Should that lack of a track record worry conservatives or should we be all in on her nomination? Normally you would be a little worried if all a judge had was just Two or three years of a track record on the appeals courts because judges in that period of time, especially when you're just on the court, they'll write that many opinions.

"Back America. Here is the conclusion of my interview with Senator Ben Sasse of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Let me close with some practical things. Senator Lindsey Graham is your chairman. He's a fine man. He's always welcome here. I hope he wins reelection easily. I think he's made a mistake and scheduling hearings to begin on the 13th rather than the sixth because I do believe the Democrats will put a torpedo in the water. Did you disagree with Senator Graham on his timing, or do you agree with him? By and large. I agree. There are many different components to this in ways Democrats are goingto tryto skunk it all up, But I want the FBI to be able to their full background investigation update That probably takes two full weeks. So basically, I think when he made the right call, But I hear you're dissenting point. And do you believe there will be a vote before out of the committee in time for the Senate to move? With all of the expected delaying measures to a final vote on confirmation before the election. But what's the field lines? All senators are equal in summer way, way more equal than others. That's that's a Mitch. Call on the timing. My guess is it's before Election Day, but I don't think the majority leader has Finally decided or announced, and I think part of that is because he's got to figure out how to navigate all these delaying tactics. But my my gut is the Judiciary Committee votes about two weeks after the hearing starts and the Senate convert right after that. You know, I believe that Senate Republicans who are up for re election, we'll get badly hurt may be wiped out. If this is not done by the election day because of the late start do share if it had been an ambush. That would be one thing like Cavanaugh. But if we stop if we start late And end up not voting. Because of this. I think the Reprisal against Republicans at the ballot box will be extraordinary, Senator. Yeah, I you know, as one of eight in the 100 has never run for anything before. I do not in any way believe I'm great at political calculus. I think my my focus in this moment is on the opportunity for us to teach some civics about what a judge's job is, and I'm ecstatic that Judge Barrett has been picked. I think she's gonna perform incredibly well before the committee and my guess is we're going to get there to the vote in time that you don't have to have that worry, but I'm not great at the political calculus. Let me follow a CZ. Well, will the Senate Judiciary Committee be able to take up a nominee to replace Judge then Justice Barritt such as Kate Todd, who I believe was put on the short list in order to float her name because she's from Indiana, and we'll make a great seventh Circuit Judge. I also have high views of her. I don't know You're the legal expert. As you know, I followed that Chuck Grassley tradition of being and not lawyer on this committee. I don't know the technical rule on if the vacancy has to be truly in place, as opposed to only anticipated before the White House in transmit nomination documents. So it wouldn't I might guess is Judge Bear. It would have to resign from the seventh Circuit before there's a vacancy or that not so, you know, that is so although they could do the FBI background they could prepare the committee and I don't expect the vote to occur until the lame duck on Kate Todd. I'm just saying, if you would be open to Cape Cod as the successor to Judge Barrett She's an impressive individual. I mean, obviously, when I nominate advise the president on his nomination, I tend to push first from Nebraska District Court issues, eight Circuit Court issues and scotus issues. So seven circuits stuff is a place where I don't have a ton of juice, but I'm also a fan of verse. Well, the Judiciary Committee always has a tendency of Senator Ben Sasse good luck in the weeks ahead, keeping calm and keep reminding people About how faith is a plus not a negative and how your colleagues can't break it up, Please. Thank you, senator. And and then and good luck to you every day except October 24 friends. Oh, well, you know, that's not really I don't need your luck on that. I just hope that bleeding into bed for big red. Thank you. Senator Senator is referring to the fact that the Ohio State University gets to grind up Nebraska on October 24th into small little bits of grain to be reseeded is the seed corn in Nebraska. Yeah, There was a very funny video released at the beginning of the college season when it was all up in there and recast and led me into a little rabbit hole, and it showed the additional games that drew out for various teams, and I believe it was The folks from Georgia. We're hoping to draw Vanderbilt and somebody else and they got L s U Alabama is there two additional games? Well, they reconfigured the big 10 schedule and poor Nebraska drew the Ohio State University. And I think they had a year off of getting crushed by the Buckeyes, But I'm not sure I'm not sure. Baby. How are you baby in Kentucky? Hey, baby, you're on. Okay. All right. Honey, you think the Republicans would go to Yes, things get stalled out. Are we going to turn it over to jokingly called the criminal Tommy Karan. Well, then the other. They're not Khamis, but know what we're going to get it done. I think I think I think it's just going to be a question of. I wish they would get it done faster. Thank you. B B 10 in Tampa, you got to be quick him. Number. I am a Catholic. I'm a 20 year veteran from U. S military and on my master Mason. What kind of special hell do you think they have in mind for me? You know, my grandfather was a mason. I don't know what Master Mason means. What is that? Oh, you're that you've been a member of my son a glass for many years and moved up in the ranks. But it's a secret society. Yeah, I've heard. It's a secret society. But over across the river in old town, Alexandria, there's a Masonic temple that you can see for, like 100 Miles away were a biggest statue of George. Why? It's like the least secret society I've ever heard out. Thank you, Tim. I'm coming back..

"The ongoing system on and we'll have that happen well, but if they throw out the law, it doesn't it doesn't matter. You have to pass a new and very quickly. You guys are rushing to confirm a Supreme Court justice. Where's the urgency on virus relief? Well, let me say on if they what if they throw out the law November hearing doesn't throw out the law. They won't do that until sometime in the late late spring or early summer before we even know what their ruling is, and we'll have time to deal with this. On on the virus relief. I think we're doing some really innovative things. They're going to be, as many tests produced in October as people have taken up until now, about a million And a half to 150 million tests produced in October more testing vaccines that work, But no virus really flew forward with backstage, but no relief from Congress on Corbett. I think I think that is a huge mistake, Chuck. I think to get back to school to get backto work to get back to better health. We need a bill workload. We're in very near agreement on all the Kobe things that matter. We're not an agreement on is about a trillion dollars worth of other things. Senator Roy Blunt Republican from Missouri. I appreciate you coming on and sharing your perspective with us, sir. Thank you. Great to be with you. Thank you. Let me bring in Democratic Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey. He is a member of the Judiciary Committee, Senator Booker welcome back to meet the press. Thank you. I want to start obviously, with the nomination of Judge Barrett and I guess the question is What is it? There's a question I've been getting. Is Howard Democrats going to confront this nominee? Are you going to confront on the issues that are at stake or you're going to go after the process? There's been some talk, for instance of boycotting. The confirmation hearings where the Democrats going here, sir. Well, I think the Democrats and two Republicans are with the American people. First of all, the process is not legitimate. As Susan Collins herself said, fair is fair, They articulated a process. In for President Obama, and now they're doing the exact opposite under President Trump. It's not fair. It's wrong and D legitimizes the court. In addition to that, it's actually during an election. We have people starting to vote already. And the majority of American people are with the Democrats and two Republicans who all believe this should be waiting until after the election. Ah, and then finally you. You said it, not only the process is legitimate and should be called into question. But unfortunately, what's at stake here is stunning. I am surprised. Frankly, that you could keep a straight face. You know that This is about the affordable care act. You know that this court and what Amy Combing the President Trump's Nominee has put up is That she will tear down the affordable care act that she's written about that This is part of his litmus test, and unfortunately Americans are about to see A Supreme Court that's going to turn against a law that has provided really basic, perfect protections that the majority of Americans really want. So this is about high stakes. What What's at stake right to control your own body? Organizing the right to organize into a union and it's also about a process that undermines the legitimacy of the very court. Ah, that is critical, especially right now during a pandemic and during It seems like a crisis that this president's going to precipitate after this election. Let me ask about process here for a minute in 2016. You had said this. The Senate is no excuse to ignore blockade or stonewall consideration of this nominee. The Senate must do its job to provide advice and consent and swiftly schedule hearings debate. And an up or down vote. Here's the question I have. Which precedent should be which which should be the president, the ones that Republicans invented in 16 or the ones they're inventing that Well, I guess you were asked the same question I asked to Lindsey Graham and two Republicans is which president? Do you really believe it? Because you can't say one thing and then do another, Barack Obama was putting up a nominee 269 days. A foreign election 269 days on. Now we see Donald Trump doing it. While people are voting in the midst of an election we clearly see the Republicans have shown the height of hypocrisy. And what they're doing. As I said, even two of their members have said This is not fair. This is wrong, and we should not do it. This is what you are What you believe in history. Forget what? What do you believe should be the president? I think that if if, if whether it was a Republican president or democratic president, when 269 days before election, you should most certainly be enough time for a hearing in Congress. Enough time to get this done. Well, is there a lot Is there a line you would draw? Is there a line you would draw to say? You know what? Well after wind, I mean, you know, this does seem here fairly clearly. I don't think it's objective. All I think it voting has started, and if you're just a matter of weeks, I think that that's too soon Lincoln had a similar circumstance where it was days before an election he did not put A nominee up. This is too short. You see a majority of American people over 70% just like wait a minute. Just wait. Timeout. Wait until we've had a chance to vote on our health care. Wait until the chance. We've had a vote on keeping Roe v. Wade. Wait until the chance. We've had a vote on or union rights, right? These are the kind of things that I think common sense. You really see the more Georgie in American people coming down on common sense. And this is the thing that frustrates me now. In the midst of a pandemic is a lot of people are afraid now about what Donald Trump is doing. He's injecting fear into this about people losing their health care, which is a clear and present danger during a pandemic. A Z move somebody who's written about this and talked about this, and then there's another clear and present danger. I think a lot of us feel fear. Which is a guy that says the president has said that he's not going to honor the peaceful transition of power. That is a stunning statement. It's a betrayal of your oath to defend the Constitution and the And the United States of America. It's It's an anti Democratic thing to say, Senator Do you plan to meet with Judge Barrett? It's my intention to do so. I think you know my spirit, which is to sit down and meet with people into onto them, and I'm going to make it very clear. One of the things I want to ask her is will she recused herself? Because if she does not in terms of any election issues that come before us, because if she does not recuse herself, I fear that the court will be further delegitimized. In other words, President Trump I said, I will not accept the results of the election. Unless I win. I'm going to push it to the Supreme Court and oh, by the way during the election, I'm going to put somebody on the court as well. So I hope to have a conversation with her and I I'm blessed to be on the Judiciary Committee and I'll have that as well. Hopefully have a good informed dialogue back and forth..

ABC is Karen Travers reports from Washington. President Trump had a message for the Senate who will begin the confirmation process something that is gonna happen on a very quick timeline, with hearings, likely starting within about two weeks and a vote potentially before Election Day, provide Judge Barrett with a respectful and dignified hearing that she deserves. And frankly, that our country deserves Amy Cockney. Barrett acknowledged the woman she will be potentially replacing on the Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an icon to liberals who died just eight days ago. I'm Jeff Pooja learn. ABC News has now confirmed that it will be a me Cockney barrettes, a conservative jurist that President Trump intends to nominate to the United States Supreme Court. Joining us now is Andrew single. He's the associate dean of the law school at Seattle University. And the first thing that everyone's talking about is this is going to mark a sharp shift to the right for the high court, but What does Judge Baird herself bring to the bench? Judge Barrett isthe really accomplished. The quite young was a legal academic beforehand. He has the highest level legal skills. No one is building that. She also has a very strong record before she was on the bench, and Walsh is on the bench of being down the line conservative on most the hot button issues like abortion and gun. To motivate American voters and his she ruled on any of these hot button issues since he's been on the bench. He's only been there for three years since the president nominated her to the appellate court. Yeah, she's not. She's not duck heart issues, and she has proven to be as conservative as people expected when she was nominated. She has in two separate cases involving three separate abortion restrictions in Indiana, Casper Muslim dissenting, um, suggesting that pretty significant abortion restrictions Our constitutional. She is also significant out on an important about the constitutionality of a lot of pro legislation. So yeah, she is making a mark on the right in just three years old. But adding to that is that Judge Barrett doesn't seem to subscribe to the issue of starry decisis, which is that The courts tend to respect president by sticking with previous rulings. She's suggesting that the previous ruling are probably when the stakes are high enough in the constitution is clearing up and left. In the court. The court has given it previously. Um it's an out wire positions is not the only one that takes that position. But, yeah, I think that I think that she like Justice Thomas, who's already on the court. Is going to be someone who was going to be prepared to get a fresh look at a lot of president disagrees aside, Roe vs Wade what other hot button issues are likely to come before the court In the next couple of years. We're already alluded to very major to very major areas, abortion rights. And gun legislation were undoubtedly there What's percolating in the lower court and we're going. We're going to be hearing a lot soon. Um, you can ask that there is there is great debate right now about the scope of religious exemptions from various civil rights, Watch all rights protection. And they push from the right from much greater exemptions from those laws, and we think that Judge Barrett would be would be sympathetic. We have waiting a very complicated statutory challenge to the continuation of the affordable care act, which is due to be argued in. You know about two months before the course, and Barrett may be on the court by then, and maybe a potentially the decisive both there. Add to that, Of course, the fact we're dealing on at least a week with basis right now. It's probably soon to be in a daily basis, with challenges to various election procedures related and various issues relating to the coming elected and like any person that night. It's hard to imagine the board political ward charge. I'm friendly justice during the court. Is she do you think going to be a reliable ally to President Trump? Once she gets on the bench? I think that All indications are that the sense that you consider kind of President Trump Card of the conservative judicial agenda and return is embraced that Judge Barrett is No lock step with them on those issues.

"That there would be a vacancy created by Justice Ginsburg. That's right when the vacancy came up just a few years ago, when Justice Kennedy retired That is when Judge Barrett came in the orbit of the White House, and the president was contemplating a naming her to fill that seat. She made it to the finalists for that vacancy, but ultimately as we know the president chose as his nominee. Red Cavanaugh, who has now taken his place on the U. S Supreme Court, and indeed now with the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, a little over a week ago, it is Judge parent who has been nominated to fill that vacancy. She made reference to her as we just heard during her speech after the president introduced her, and she certainly will come up during the course of these confirmation hearings, which were expected to last three days. All right, John Decker again with us at the Ah, the White House there at the Rose Garden ceremony. Bring back as well. Josh Cross our our Fox news radio political analyst. So so, Josh We've now heard from Judge Barrett. Is this nomination moves forward. Do you expect to hear much else from Judge Barrett before? Ah, hearing day? Well, hearing day is coming up in a couple weeks. So that's a yes, but you know, I don't want to continue on to the importance of the timing not just before the election. But you talked about the Obama care hearing scheduled for November 10th that that's going to be of the possibly the first piece of jurisprudence that that parent has an impact on Judge John Roberts that the chief justice was the key fifth vote to preserve Obamacare not long ago that that is going to be AH, major major case. I'm already Joe Biden is making healthcare the central criticism of Justice Bharat and reference the fact that she she opposed the Roberts's decision, along with the other four liberal justices. When Obamacare was last up before the Supreme Court. I'd also say elect election law is going to be a possible hot potato for the Supreme Court if we have Closely contested presidential election and having having her seated before Election Day, mate Mate may be beneficial to Republicans given the contentious nature of of those types of cases, as we saw in 2000, not that long ago in the Bush v. Gore case, So that's that's something that the president himself has alluded to in his public comments before choosing Justice Barritt The point is well about these hearings that are going to come on. In short order is one of the Democratic senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Josh, if you know is a Senator Kamala Harris. The vice presidential running mate to Joe Biden. Harris certainly made a name for herself. In the earlier hearings for both Cavanaugh and Gorsuch, a very aggressive questionnaire a prosecutorial style of questioning of these nominees and really earned some bona fide there from from particularly the progressive in Democratic base. What's the strategy? If you are, you know on a national campaign on now, goingto have, if not a starring role, at least a supporting role in what will be the biggest story. In Washington for at least a couple of days. In theory, this is why you want the Senator Harris on the Judiciary Committee as your running mate. If you're Joe Biden to be that litigator toe have that moment in the spotlight. Making the Democratic case in the case they want to make is that health care is at risk with a 63 conservative majority. On the Supreme Court may be a five for potential majority to overturn Obamacare. They want to make that the main issue in the hearings. That's what Joe Biden said in his statement today. So ultimately, you want Harris to drive that point home as Joe Biden's running mate and is a critical member on that Senate Judiciary Committee. She was on the committee, and she certainly got some attention for her questioning of now, just this Kavanaugh, but she's going to be under an even hotter spotlight and Her ability to score some political points in her questioning is going to be very important and significant for Democrats. A CZ we look at this committee. This will not be the first time that Judge Barrett is the Senate Judiciary Committee. As we said she was confirmed to the seventh Circuit in 2017. Early in President Trump's first term she was viewed then is a fairly controversial nominee. She faced questions about her Catholic faith and how that relates to her view on the law. Here's a little bit of that hearing back in 2017 with the top Senate Democrat. On the Judiciary Committee. California Democrat Dianne Feinstein in your case, professor Would.
