"Now in D.C. 50 and gathersburg and 55 in manassas All right thanks Samara 6 41 History was made last week with the confirmation of judge ketanji Brown Jackson for the U.S. Supreme Court White House and political analyst for U.S. news and World Report Ken Walsh joined WTO Shana schulen to break down what we learned from Jackson's confirmation hearing I think it's very clear that that hyper partisanship which we've talked about on Sunday mornings many times is still very pervasive and it's really just as corrosive as it has been Just as they let Jackson I think handled it rather well not getting upset trying not to respond in time when he was charged with various things such as disappointing pedophiles and so on But that's what our hearing is if the Supreme Court have become The last several have been very divisive very polarizing The opponents take every opportunity to cut down the nominees And I think that's a reflective of the larger political environment we're in where this hyper partisanship will continue And I think that's sort of the downside of these hearings that as you say it's happening more and more each time we get an opening on the Supreme Court On the bright side I think that this is a historic moment and I think that justice to be Jackson as the first black woman on the Supreme Court I think it was quite inspirational in her comments after the Senate voted to confirm her And I think a lot of African American women and girls would be very inspired by this frankly And so I think there's a sort of a positive and negative side but I think as a predictor of our politics I think the signs are pretty bad on how divided we are and how politicians increasingly will really pull out all the stops to undermine the opposition and that's not good for our country and for civility in the country at large This has been campaign promised by the president now fulfilled as you said it's a big moment for the African American community and really for the country The president is struggling with voters though including in the African American community is this going to help him going forward Yeah that's a very good question I think that it might particularly among African American women I think though that he does have some serious problems as a perception that he has not been keeping his campaign promises I think he has in some major cases such as the infrastructure law and working on the coronavirus And also promising to name a black woman to Supreme Court So he has had some positive steps in that way But it's not really sinking in and this is a common problem with President Biden A lot of his programs and the ideas he has tends to be popular but he doesn't get credit for them And I think that's the problem Again that's U.S. news and world reports Ken Walsh coming up on WTO The Nats pick up a win The wizards are wrapping their season and the final day of the masters just ahead in sports 6 43 University of Maryland global campus was established to bring a respected state university education to working adults at home in abroad 70 years ago we sent professors overseas to educate service members and their families on military installations.

"Made as the Senate voted to confirm judge ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court this week She's the first black woman to ever serve on the high court There were tense moments along the way to getting her confirmed as many Senate Republicans including Ted Cruz of Texas accused Jackson of being an activist judge I believe she will prove to be the furthest left of any justice to have ever served on the Supreme Court Vanessa Gilmore is a woman of color and a former federal judge as well She gave her reaction to WTO's Dmitri sodas Having set through the hearings and listened to judge Jackson's full answers not the sound bites that we hear on television I think that she is more a centrist And I think that she is somebody that is going to respect the law respect the constitution look at the facts and make and informed judicial decision based on the law and the facts before her I would not have been able to lean that much about her in terms of the way that I anticipate she will work on her cases if I had not set there and listen carefully to her answers And I think that people are going to be surprised to find somebody who is reasonable who is informed who is a good study and who is ready to make a decision that is in conformity with the laws and the constitution of the United States of America People of color and their accomplishments in our country and I've heard this from so many people colleagues and others that you have to be perfect every day or there's a feeling that you have to be perfect every day and I'm just wondering what your thoughts are about that just our condition right now and our continued racial reckoning Having said as the United States district judge for 28 years here in Houston one of the things that is noticeable is the extent to which people in the community will push back against the decisions of the black federal judges How often we are asked to recuse ourselves from cases How often we are accused of not being able to be fair and impartial particularly where there are black persons involved in the litigation that if there's this automatic assumption that we're going to be unable or unwilling to be fair because of our race When frankly in discussions with my other black colleagues nothing could be further from the truth We take the same oath as anybody else We are bound by the same constitution and laws of the United States as anybody else And to be honest with you it's really insulting when people make the assumption that we are automatically going to be biased for or against somebody because of our race and people constantly seeking to have us recused or taken off cases for that reason Frankly it's exhausting sometimes But it's something that you get used to as a judge and you get used to as an African American jurist and you just understand that it's part of what goes with the job and that you are going to have to push back against assumptions being made.

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson Confirmed to Serve on Supreme Court

"The biggest news by far for Americans, and it will continue to be news for as long as she serves on the nation's highest court is the confirmation yesterday of judge Brown Jackson to become justice Brown Jackson when Stephen Breyer retires in early July. She has not been appointed to the court yet she's just been confirmed to the court for the vacancy that Stephen Breyer announced will occur in the summer. Congratulations to judge Brown Jackson. It will be a 6 three court on many, many occasions, occasionally 5, four, occasionally the liberals will win because there are some conservatives on the court who believe, for example, in defense rights in the rights of the accused, quite significantly, and therefore, it's a wait and see. But I think she will reliably vote with justice at MIU or more than 95% of their

"We're here to make you smarter, and the news less overwhelming. I'm Alex Carr. Let's skim this. Let's start with some headlines from the week's news, and give you some context on why they matter. First up, on this vote, the a's are 53. The nays are 47. And this nomination is confirmed. It wasn't just an ordinary day on Capitol Hill. Today, the Senate voted to confirm a new Supreme Court Justice. Judge ketanji Brown Jackson will officially be the first black woman to sit on the bench. All 50 Senate Democrats and three of their Republican colleagues voted to confirm Jackson, who will be sworn in after justice Breyer retires at some point this summer. Jackson's confirmation fulfills a major campaign promise from president Joe Biden and also marks a historic moment in the country's history. Okay, next headline. The Oklahoma House voted overwhelmingly to approve legislation making performing an abortion illegal. Here's the context. Oklahoma lawmakers have approved a bill that would make almost all abortions illegal. The legislation outlaws abortions for every reason, except if there's a life threatening medical emergency. Anyone who breaks the law, whether it's someone seeking an abortion or an abortion provider could face felony charges, punishable by up to ten years in prison and a $100,000 fine. It's important to point out that ever since Texas passed a similarly restrictive abortion law last year, people seeking abortions in the lone star state actually went to Oklahoma for those services. So this latest bill will not only affect people in Oklahoma, but also people in other states looking for abortion care. And on a national level, this bill is one of many restrictive abortion laws being debated by lawmakers across the country. And it could take effect soon after the Supreme Court rules on their biggest abortion case in decades early this summer. Okay, next headline, the Biden administration will extend the pandemic era freeze on those loan payments through August. If you're getting deja vu, you're not alone. This will be the 7th delay of payments since early in the pandemic. And it comes just a few weeks before the last extension was sent to expire. The new date to add to your calendar is August 31st. But some Democrats want Biden to push out the date even further. Arguing that a lot of Americans aren't prepared to resume payments amid rising inflation and borrowing costs. While others in his party are urging Biden to go a step further and cancel some of the $1.7 trillion Americans owe in federal loans. Whether that happens is still TBD. But for now, it looks like The White House is taking a page out of the old college playbook, asking for an extension on the assignment. Okay, let's get to our final headline. According to a new study, Instagram is failing to stop abusive messages on its platform. The center for countering digital hate did a study with 5 well-known women, where they went through thousands of their DMs, and the center found that Instagram failed to act on 90% of abuse sent in those messages. Despite that abuse being reported to the platform. What kind of messages? We're talking about harassment, violent threats, and disturbing images. And while this report only looked at 5 women's accounts, most of us know, this problem is bigger than that. And a lot of women feel unsafe on social media. Stepping back, the past few months have been pretty eye opening. As we've learned more about how safe we actually are as we scroll on these apps. Instagram and its parent company meta have faced allegations that their platforms prioritize profit over safety. And advocates have urged them to do more to protect users. Whether execs in Silicon Valley are actually listening, remains to be seen. But one thing's for sure. Another day,.

"Professor Murray, we've got less than two minutes left, but I'm not letting you get away with trying to get you to be personal for a moment. When justice Breyer announced his retirement, lots of names of black women were offered as people who would be great on the Supreme Court. Your name was among them. And those of us who also work at MSNBC were incredibly proud to know that someone we work with was being talked about, her name was mentioned as being on the roster of people who could be on the Supreme Court. Just talk, please, personally, what that meant to you just to have your name out there? Well, I mean, again, I had no illusions about my prospects, certainly against a field of black women who are so exceptionally qualified. I counted myself fortunate to be included in their company. And I just love the idea that a law professor and not a sitting judge might be on this list because again, I think the court could be diversified in a lot of ways and professional experience is one of them, and we've had law professors on the court before. I hope we will have law professors in the future. But again, I had no illusions about my chances. I have written about a number of controversial topics while I would love to discuss it with the Senate Judiciary Committee. It would be fodder, I think, that would make it very hard for the administration to get someone like me through. But I was just really excited to see this reservoir of black women lawyers being lifted up and having the whole country see that this wasn't a question of affirmative action. There were so many people who were supremely qualified to take on this position they had amazing credentials superlative experience. This wasn't about the president making some kind of concession to identity politics. There were amazing candidates here that he should have been considered that should have been considered long before and finally were getting their due. And I was just glad to be included among that exceptional group. See, everyone has seen over the last 30 minutes while you were one of my favorite people to talk to. Melissa Murray, Professor of law at New York University. Thank you very much for coming to capehart on Washington Post live. Thank you for having me. Thanks for listening to capehart.

"And it was, I think, the resignation of Abe Fortis that offered Richard Nixon quite a number of opportunities to really change the composition of the court. So it was a consequential resignation on a number of fronts that set in motion the conservative direction that I think we are seeing in full flower today. The earlier question of impeachment came up in the wake of the Civil War with salmon chase, who was a justice of the court. Again, not impeach, but investigated and or it wasn't removed from his office. He wasn't PhD. But the investigation, I think, did lead him to sort of pull back some of his more partisan dealings in that way. So there's the question of, is he likely to be impeached? I don't know. I think there will surely be an investigation at some point. And maybe that will prompt justice Thomas to think about what the optics of all of this looks like and maybe perhaps to recuse himself in particular cases or perhaps to limit or put more of a wall between his dealings and what his wife is doing separately. Well, we will, we will see about that. Let's talk about judge katangi Brown Jackson. You were just talking about there is a super majority conservative majority on the court 6 three. Upon confirmation, that judge Jackson, that dynamic will not change. So what impact will a justice Jackson have on the Supreme Court? So leaving aside the practical consequences which I think, as you say, are going to be negligible. She's not going to disrupt this conservative supermajority. Although she may have a very important voice, certainly in the criminal justice arena in dissenting, I think that may come across. And there are also maybe opportunities to forge some coalitions with some unlikely bedfellows on Neil Gorsuch as a sort of noted libertarian. That can often prove to be a fruitful line for coalition building with liberals on criminal justice issues. So maybe that is a place where she will make her mark. But I think at least initially her real power is going to be symbolic. Like what it means to actually have another black voice on the court and to have that voice be the voice of a black woman I think is absolutely important. It sends a message to black women lawyers. It sends a message to little girls across the country about what is possible. And I think in the interpersonal dynamics of the court, it is going to be hugely consequential to have another black voice that will make clear that justice Thomas voice does not necessarily speak for the entirety of the black experience. And I think that will be especially important next term on the court takes up a very consequential challenge to affirmative action. Judge Jackson was asked about affirmative action and she said that she would recuse herself from this case..

"The integrity and the public perception of the court eroded, let's say, since the 2000 presidential election, but has it started galloping since the Trump years? So again, the court has ebbs and flows. It does depend on the public for its legitimacy, the public has to view what the court is doing as legitimate. And that's why they obey, there's nothing to make them obey. But I think the court has had a really difficult run. Certainly in the last year. There was, of course, in September, the challenge, an SBA, the Texas abortion statute that prohibits abortion at just 6 weeks, where the court recognizing and in some cases conceding by some members that the law was patently unconstitutional given the court's prior precedents allowed that law to remain in place in Texas because of a procedural quirk that made it difficult to challenge it. And I think many people thought that that was an outcome that would not have been possible a year or two years ago when the court was differently composed. But the fact that the court is now a 6 to three conservative super majority suggests that maybe suddenly lots of things are open where they weren't before. And I think that lends a sense of illegitimacy. The idea that nothing has changed about the court except its personnel now suddenly we're seeing the court being incredibly aggressive about assaults on established rights, rolling back protections for the administrative state. I think all of that lends the impression that the court perhaps is more politicized than it has been. And we've seen the justices take to the huskings to disclaim these charges of over politicization. So we saw justice Amy Coney Barrett advise individuals that this was not a group of partisan hacks. Regrettably, she made that claim while she was on stage at the McConnell center, the university of Louisville with Mitch McConnell looking on. Unfortunate optics. We also saw justice Thomas make a similar claim that they were not partisan. They were not political. They were doing loss. So we've had a number of justices, probably more that I can think of at any time sort of go on a world tour to make clear to the public that they're not partisan hacks. That can only happen because they understand that the public is questioning the court's legitimacy and indeed. In recent Gallup polling, the court had its lowest Gallup rating. It has ever had in the history of the Gallup poll asking about the Supreme Court. And so you talked about a few of the justices who have gone out on the hustings to talk up the legitimacy of the Supreme Court. One person you didn't mention is the chief justice. Who, from everything that I've read, truly holds the integrity of the Supreme Court and its role in our system of government very, very dear, from your vantage point, how's he doing in that endeavor? Especially now with a 6 three conservative super.

I wouldn't be surprised if a couple more Republican senators, if the hearings and if her testimony, the committee here and say, to mark a well. I expect actually more than a few.

"But yeah. Oh my gosh, I mean, I could talk all day. The way that we have harmed everyone, like a deep, deep societal harm is our legacy of not respecting jobs that we code as feminine, the traditionally feminine. So care work, social work, education, all of these things that we have coded as feminine, the de prioritization, and just outright degradation and disrespect of those. I think that the ramifications, we will never fully be able to contend with as a society how much that is.

"Qualified to lead us in this type of position. Absolutely. So even before judge Jackson was named as the nominee, people were wasting no time lobbying these completely ridiculous, unfair sexist attacks on her, just we don't even know who she is. She was just a hypothetical person. Senator John Kennedy, he told Politico, I want a nominee who knows a law book from a J crew catalog. I want a nominee who is not going to try to rewrite the constitution every other Thursday to advance a woke agenda. And he was saying this, we didn't even know who this person was yet, and they were already lobbying these racist sexist attacks. Like, why do you assume that she's not going to know what a legal brief from a j.crew catalog? Reading between the lines that is obviously meant to be a sexist swipe because Biden had already expressed his intentions to nominate a black woman. Why do you assume this person is going to be pushing a woke agenda and what does that even mean? I think when you really pull apart some of these dog whistles that are used, it just reveals itself as unfair attacks rooted in identity or just complete hypocrisy. Like just like what you were saying, were you referencing Lindsey Graham who was I think it was literal. So I've been up working on this since like all day, right? So I watched the announcement come in. I watched all the responses. Lindsey Graham tweeted literally minutes after she was announced saying, quote, the radical left had won over Biden. Yet Graham also voted to confirm judge Jackson to the D.C. federal appeals court, which is the second most important court in the country, just 8 months ago, this past summer. So which is it? Is this a win for the woke left? And what was different? 8 months earlier when you voted to confirm her. So it was just very interesting. At this point, I wouldn't even like the hypocrisy is so clear that it's almost sort of like not worth pointing out. It's like, of course, you are only interested in a bad faith assessment, you know, you don't even expect people to look back at your own voting record to see where you actually stand on this issue. You're just counting on people not actually spending a little bit of time thinking about what you're saying. Right. Yeah. We're both shaking our head with frowns. It's true though. It's so frustrating because it's like, every time I point out something that's hypocritical, it doesn't matter anymore. They're like, yeah, it is. I mean, essentially, it's kind of what we were talking about when Amy Barrett Cohen was confirmed as well as Kavanaugh about the ridiculous hypocrisy that happened between Obama and administration and the Trump administration. And now we're back again. Now we're here again to the same conversation. And literally half of the Republican candidates or the conservative politicians will agree. Yeah, this is hypocritical. This is what we do. And they kind of just leave it at that. And assume that nobody will notice and typically people who are already dug their hills in, don't notice. Won't notice, because they want what they want, and whatever agenda it is, they have planted themselves firmly in. But yeah, let's talk about the fact this is a whole different conversation. But that we have different types of terms and words like woke that have been used as a positive, has now flipped so hard to a negative that everyone is automatically like, oh, he said it, he's right, it's bad. Oh my gosh, I could talk all day, I'll just say, so I have two things to say about this. One is that you are so right. There are so many words that have just become meaningless, right? So if you're talking about a hypothetical Supreme Court nominee, and you're like, oh, we don't want somebody who's awoke. You don't know anything. This person is a hypothetical person, so you're not, you don't know anything about their record. You don't know anything about where they stand on the issues. So saying woke, it almost just the only thing we know about this person is that she's going to be a black woman. You're saying you don't want someone who is woke. Reading between the lines, you're using that as a stand in for the word black, right? And so I think that we see that time and time again where these words become stand ins for identity and they also kind of become meaningless, right? Like cancel culture is another one. I remember reading, this is sort of silly, but there was this story a while ago where this guy who had been running a race horse in The Kentucky Derby, his racehorse had been, I don't know, I'm sure there's more details to it, but essentially his racehorse had been drug tested and he had been found to have drugs and a system so he was disqualified. And then an interview he was like, oh, this is cancel culture strikes again. And I was like, what are you even talking about? How are these cancel culture? In what way you got caught? Yeah, you got caught. Dope in your horse and your horse was disqualified. That's not cancel culture. Even I just have a lot of questions about the way that these words are being used. But I think and that's kind of the second point that I want to make about this is that one of the reasons why I am so adamant about things like this information misinformation and just having a healthier, more honest conversation and immediate landscape the facilitates those kinds of conversations is that we are no longer able to have substantive thoughtful conversations about the issue when our ecosystem is flooded with bad faith clearly hypocritical rhetoric and discourse. And so, you know, even if you're someone, let's say that you're listening and you are very conservative, you probably have hated this conversation that we've been having. But even if you're someone who is very conservative, you deserve to be able to, you know, talk about your issues, have a substantive conversation and a substantive debate about where you stand on the issues. And so I believe that when the discourse and the space is just flooded with charged rhetoric, where we're talking about race or identity, but using different words, everybody loses because you're not able to have a substantive conversation about where you might agree or disagree with the Supreme Court nominee, right? And so I think that that's my biggest issue is that we have a media ecosystem that really amplifies the most extreme, the most over the top statements, or the most nonsense statements. And so everybody loses Democrat Republican conservative, lefty, whoever, everybody loses when we have an ecosystem that amplifies the least substantive takes because that takes away from the ability to have an actual substantive thoughtful debate or conversation about the actual issues. And so I don't want to create the conditions for judge Jackson to only be judged by racist sexist tropes or caricatures or unfair attacks because I want to talk about her actual credentials. I want to talk about her actual record. I want to talk about her actual character, but disinformation and misinformation does not allow for the actual issues to take the center stage that they should. Right. You just kind of explain my whole conversation with my parents over the holidays. But we won't get into that right now. Just go and put that there. It was interesting. But you know, and I'm thinking about this because when we talk about these terms and automatically just becoming used by media as an ecosystem to bring in the shock value, it makes me also realize that in terms of what they're talking about in woke, it is a black term that was created by the black community to kind of gift non black people with, hey, you woke up. Congratulations. You're finally seeing what we have been going through all of our generations. Welcome, you have woke. That's kind of that term. And I hate that it has been weaponized to this point of being used against people. And when they're using it, when Kennedy used this, he was weaponizing this term to a woman to an official to a judge to a professional who didn't need to be woke. She was already there. This was her life and not only that, if we do look at her backgrounds and credentials, she has been doing this work. There's no conversation I've heard being woke. She just is. So with that because I'm angry about this. Can.
