"OK Christine. Think she's so lobster we love it okay. So then on September twenty seven two thousand eighteen as we've spoken about cavenaugh in four testify during an all day hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee and as we famously remember. Republicans hire a special prosecutor to do the questioning. Dr Ford they were there was a lot of talk about trying to avoid. What p what. The Democrats are no. Yeah with the hill You know and specifically like somebody who gets still problems for it today as Joe Biden. Yeah for you know the questioning and and how awful they sounded so they're the Republicans this time we're like cool we won't we won't engage other and they put the special prosecutor in front. Who you know like the question to me I. I didn't see necessarily other than the Republicans not looking like assholes asking questions of Dr Ford. I didn't see really any sort of like big gotcha moment for using this special prosecutor. I was just like cool. She just asked like do questions and I felt like she was trying to be respectful. Yeah well and trying also trying to end the subtlest way. She could like try to undermine her which is her job they try to undermine. Christine. Lousy Ford Chrysler. Luanne Ford was so just like innocent sitting there like she was just like. I'm sorry I don't I don't understand. Can You repeat that? Like yeah she just anytime that were there possibly could have been a moment where the prosecutor was like. And you actually think this. Are you anytime? She could have possibly undermined your doctor. Ford was like I. I'm I'm really sorry I just I'm I'm trying to understand what your your question is like. She disarmed her with her. Nearly it was after after that testimony. I remember thinking like there's no way he gets through because it was so damning. Yeah it was and with that said. If you're cool with it I was going to read an excerpt of Dr Ford's opening statement Sure and so. This is what Dr Ford said happened that night. When I got to the small gathering peop- people were drinking beer and a small living room on the first floor of the house. I drink one beer that evening. Brett and mark were visibly drunk early. In the evening I went up to a I went up a narrow set of stairs leading from the living room to a second floor. Use the bathroom. When I got to the top of the stairs I was pushed from behind into a bedroom. I couldn't see who pushed me. Brett and mark came into the bedroom and locked the door behind them. There was music already playing in the bedroom. It was turned up louder by either Brett or mark. Once we were in the room I was pushed onto the bed and Brat got on top of me. He began running his hands over my body and grinding his hips into me. I yelled hoping someone downstairs might hear me and tried to get away from him but his weight was heavy. Brett groped and tried to take off my clothes. He had a hard time because he was so drunk. And because I was wearing a one piece bathing suit under my clothes I believe he was going to rape me. I tried to yell for help when I did. Brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from screaming. This was what terrified me the most and he had the most lasting and hat and has had the most lasting impact on my life. It was hard for me to breathe and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me both. Brett and mark were drunkenly laughing during the attack. They both seem to be having a good time. Mark was urging on. Although at times he told Bret to stop a couple of times I made eye contact with mark and thought he might try to help me but he did not like. There's a lot of detail. There's so many details a lot of like it's just it's so response to sexual assault. Culture is so angrily frustrating and like there's so many details in this unlike women get berated all the time because they can't remember specific details right and yet you have a woman here with specific details specific easily details. I remember I was walking home. I was walking to Penn station one night from a friend's house and I was going home on the train and I was talking to my mother and I was walking talking on this on my cell phone and I passed a guy who seems completely innocuous. I didn't really pay attention to them. And as I was passing he literally reached down and grabbed my button and I was like and I turned around and I was like what what what just happened and be I looked at the man and he seemed like I was going to pick a fight with him. He was taller than me like I looked mentally unstable enough. That are not going to pick a fight with his individual but like I can remember what part of the block I was on you. What felt like what time of day it was approximately but like I couldn't tell you what day it was and what I was wearing like. There are certain things that stick in your memory. Because that's the like you associate your emotions to those there are so many details in here. Yeah and she was fifteen like a teenager. Yeah and that's the other part of it. They like say something then right. She's a teenager she's a it's not like it's now no it is not like it is now. I mean I think people forget like very there are people who people are afraid to come forward now. Yeah there's it was very different. Yeah they're like no. I Con Snow for women to look to you to be like okay. Well you know. This person has to this per movements. There's no like there's nothing there's no training there's no info I mean there's there's no infrastructure yeah like there's view is not on. The area is not not in the sphere. Fictionally a realistically. There's nothing so I just want to read that because again. I still want to hug her. That whole watching the whole thing I was just like I I want to give you so many hugs. Yeah okay back to the time line So the you know is this of his confirmation. Yes we're still confirmation so on the twenty seventh when they gave both of them gave their testimony and on the twenty eighth Gop Senator Jeff Flake a member of the Judiciary Committee agrees to vote. Yes paving the way to a floor vote but he says the FBI should reopen its background investigation of Cavanaugh and spend a week long looking into the claims made by Cavanaugh user. See Remember he was the one who is Right right in an elevator right by sexual assault survivors trump later agrees to direct the FBI to reopen its check but the probe will be limited in scope and must be completed in one week right so then on October third two thousand eighteen the FBI completes its supplemental background check and sends the information to the Senate late that day so this is what five days later on October Fourth Wall Street. Journal publishes an op-ed by Cavanaugh in which he argues that he is independent impartial judge he expresses regret for a few statements during the September twenty seventh hearing explaining that he was frustrated and emotional. He pledges going forward that litigants. Acog colleagues will be treated with respect the same day retired justice. John Paul Stevens says that Kavanagh's comments during his confirmation hearing suggest bias yes and says. Cavanaugh should not serve on the Supreme. Gordo those the thing at the end of the day you can put a pin in Dr Bazi for like her his own.

US top court divided as it ponders LGBT rights

"The United States Supreme Court appeared it deeply divided yesterday according to a USA today on a major civil rights question whether gay and transgender people are covered by federal law barring employment discrimination on the basis of sex the court's ruling in three cases which are not expected until next year seem to hands on president Donald Trump two nominees associate justice Neil Gorsuch called the dispute over transgender rights close but more likely an issue for Congress to address associate justice Brett Kavanaugh directed his only question to a lawyer for to employers that fire gay workers leaving his position in doubt about Byron Henry is a constitutional legal expert he joins us now on news radio eight forty WHAS brought Byron thanks for coming on what do you make of this it seems as though gay and transgender people would be covered but I guess the question is who would this also it enter the arena of affecting religious rights where like say a church doesn't want to hire somebody who lives a life style that goes against the biblical beliefs what to bring their Leyland first of all when the statute was passed in nineteen sixty four most believe that the word sex because of sex gender meaning if you take action one into discrimination male or female that's right and Congress has actually gone back on multiple occasions and attempted to abandon the civil rights bill to include sexual orientation is a fail so there's a strong argument that Donald this because of gender not include sexual orientation but the Congress didn't intended to otherwise they would have tried to change the statute that being said we corkage pointed out justice Gorsuch pointed out that there are textual argument for including trans gendered sexual orientation under the term because of sex with respect your second question I would say that there's already exemption in the law for religious organizations such as churches that don't hire female pastors that technically discrimination based on sex the third step based on religious beliefs so I believe that this would not affect core religious organizations such as churches and church schools and what not we may have computer for litigation on what the religious organizations as we did in the hobby lobby based on religious freedom but it would not affect the ability of churches and church schools in real what we what I would consider a religious organization they continue to practice their faith based on the law that exists today yeah it seems pretty clear to me I mean as long as there's an exemption for churches and church organizations I II people that are in a position of upholding doctrine they need to be selective that's just that's just based on like you know from the state for the same reason you would need to hire a CEO who had an expertise that running businesses and and expertise in whatever it is that your company is selling yet to be selective of that because of the doctrine but outside of that like in the case of hobby lobby or some other company that's Christian own if you're if you're open for business you got a higher all employees treat all employs the same doesn't matter what their sexual orientation is or or what they identify as so it feels like this is kind of a cut and dry thing why would the Supreme Court be struggling with this decision as long as there's religious exemptions because it's a policy decision to what the court probably thinking is there's no way when Congress wrote this fall they intended to protect sexual orientation and bike but for a patient as a couple of pointed out what's considered a mental illness even even though that has progressed obviously that's not still the case it was considered a mental illness at the time that Congress what was that the F. M. bank so I think recorded voice one academic are just out there okay all of the I don't think it's not good policy they're just saying you're still Gorsuch yet we don't abandon update statute cargo hold Congress amends got you we just tell you what the statute says selling or other academic exercise right let me predict what happens here trump is a nominated to construction is judges who recognize the limits of the power of the Supreme Court they're gonna go Hey Congress you need to fix this and then the left is gonna go absolutely not saying look what trump did he hates gays that's what's gonna happen but that that's probably what's going to happen that would say that if if but justice Gorsuch does turn and go with the administer of girl get fit the distribution and and determine that this that they are protected the L. G. B. T. are protected as well as sexual orientation under this law then you might have another chance to to to like Robert or Kevin all come along board and be in the majority would say if they know that that would be the majority opinion and just come along with it and and basically make it not even close well that's a possibility but I think this is going to be a close call though because Gorsuch has been very staunch in his views it is forced him to vote it's an integration cases and some criminal cases with the liberals because he he basically take take very eccentric libertarian have very strict textual regional public meaning kite view and and I don't think he's likely to strike back all of right in but it but but the having that viewpoint in this case would have been voting against this and saying it goes back to the Congress right right you're exactly right and so what he is he may think it's good policy in the United States is ready for the right to protection it should already have it doesn't seem to be able to persuade Neil Gorsuch in the other cases we discussed when he had a few of the constitution it doesn't matter what he has to vote for or against the exponent of statutory construction the way you believe that you have read it Congress you get

"Can tell in that on the app on the narrow application of the anti injunction act in that same descent he is incredibly skeptical of the constitutionality of the individual mandate right and he says it all of the ghost a along thing that says you know this is an unprecedented and an incredible expansion of congressional powers and then and he concludes here's his concluding analysis he says here congress's being subject to a political check thus does not do much to mitigate the fact that the majority opinion has green lighted a significant expansion of congressional authority and thus also a potentially significant infringement of individual liberty and there's that ultra minimal state language again then after that he gives this this these two sentences and literally this is what got christopher jacobs all apoplectic having said all that we should be just as cautious about prematurely or unnecessarily rejecting the government's commerce clause argument the reason is plain and needs little elaboration striking down a federal law as beyond congress's commerce clause authority is a rare extraordinarily extraordinary and monumentous act for a federal court that again is a manifestly true statement of law but it has caused a couple of folks to say oh well maybe he believes in some measure of judicial restraint right he doesn't think we should be out willy nilly striking down commerce clause regulations and and by the way that is not only is that true it is part of what makes the king versus burwell decision that's the roberts opinion upholding the individual mandate on the taxation powers not under the commerce clause it's part of what makes that such a shocking opinion right because if you had asked me prior to that adjudication i would have said that yeah the if this were a thomas the bar exam question and it and it were you know in the question pre twenty fifteen was you know congress passes a law requiring individuals to purchase insurance and it's justified by a concern for the health and wellbeing of its citizens is that likely constitutional the correct you know which of these is the best reason for constitutionality see you know the commerce like that would have been the right answer and this is why i believe last week i said there's no point taking his bar exam because what what you answer the answer could be sorry you were right but then justice cavanaugh and gore such a lido and whoever else just decided you're wrong now so that's the answer so so seriously the argument is that he did not use his dissent in this case to prematurely strike down the individual mandate from obamacare's unconstitutional that's the the conservative case against cavan again this is like yeah one time this potential justice let his socialist club membership expire for ten days before he you know re upped it that's the that's where we should be on this in terms of yeah no that's i again that's exactly right so when you see that and if you see i i mean this is kind of wrapping this all up and and putting a bow on the case delving that i have done when on this crap sandwich if rags coming at us when when brett cavanaugh is nominated you will see defenses that say oh well look like this was not if he wanted to go right wing he would have gone with amy berry amy coney barrett and you know this is a much more moderate pick this is a much more defensible pick judge cavenaugh comes minus the inflammatory rhetoric of of judge barrett but this gets ninety nine percent of what you would get from from a practical perspective and and let me be honest the idea again judge bear would be a monstrous and terrible pick and i don't know to the extent that she has a judicial philosophy versus just has a political and social philosophy but but judge cavanaugh is there's zero chance of judge cavanaugh going david suitor right judge cavenaugh you know exactly the votes that he is going to cast for the next thirty years on the supreme court it it will be the samuel alito votes right that's that's where he is do not be fooled when this comes out as you know the more conciliatory pick trump brushes aside you know do not be fooled by any of that and do not think that if there is any arch conservative pushback that that is going to amount to anything it it will not this is this is a a safe and reliable pro federalist society pick this is the.

"Executive agencies authorities and and i will point out you asked about cavenaugh opinions he has never authored an opinion he has never concurred with he's he's written so he's never authored an opinion nor joined a concurrence of an opinion that i can find in which the dc circuit has ever upheld an executive agencies at determination of a of the construction of a statute under chevron deference and that and let me point out the dc circuit is where those cases go right like that's executive agencies that get sued that's why all these cases are like us telecom association versus fcc right like all of those cases get filed in the dc circuit because that's where the executive agencies are so he's heard tons he's are dozens of cases involving chevron deference and has never found a statute ambiguous for the purposes of deferring to the agency's interpretation so very very hostile slightly look again slightly more nuanced position than gorsuch slightly a again up until a couple of months ago and he gave that speech i don't i want to just note parenthetically because we talked about in one forty four that was the what i called the landmark on bonk decision of the circuit upholding the constitutionality of the consumer finance protection bureau and we went through all the issues there that was a ten three case and cavanaugh was part of the three and that again that uses his ultra minimal state language about individual liberty and he says you know that this is a case about executive power and individual liberty and says having a consumer financial protection bureau headed by one person who may not be fired by the president impermissible violates separation of powers so i think that gives you more that that gives you some additional insight here into kavanagh's view of shifting powers away the one and i could go on and on but but but the other dishes stuff that i could go on about right so the dc circuit for example heard the heller remand right in light of dc versus heller and on remand justice cavanaugh excuse me i'm assuming his assuming his nomination is a done deal judge cavanaugh said that in light of heller and mcdonald that leaves little doubt that courts are to assess gun bans and regulations based on the text history and tradition and not by a balancing test such a stricter intermediate scrutiny so in other words adopting these scalia originalist position of dc versus heller that again i leave that as a parenthetical because that shouldn't surprise us the the previous things i think are things that you would not necessarily expect even from a conservative nominee that that help indicate why he is in fact closer to gorsuch than to someone like roberts there is a weird counter narrative that is circulating right now and i want to mention it briefly because because it's weird okay and as far as i can tell it stems from a single dude at the federalist society okay now this is an alex jones because alex jones has said that that cavanaugh helped fake bill clinton's brother's death is this what you're going to be i'm getting no are you serious i saw that this morning i saw some random tweet so it's not that you're not talking about that very distinguished theory by by one alex jones i honestly i get the where we are that i could not tell if you were cracking thomas smith joke or waiting an actual alex smith oh no i not creative enough to fake alex jones conspiracy that's too difficult to do like if i do that i would i don't know i would be some creative writing no this stems from a single guy who's thirty he is not a lawyer he's a poly seig i who wrote an immensely stupid article for the federalist society in which he said brett kavanagh wrote the roadmap to saving obamacare it is so bad that as soon as it went up other federalist society articles went up rebutting it so i'm only both of them in the show notes but essentially like this is just a crazy like hair on fire piece that that miss analyzes kavanagh's descent in in a case called seven sky versus holder so it's a twenty eleven case and in dissent what cavanaugh said was that the essentially that the dc circuit shouldn't decide the merits of whether obamacare was constitutional because of an obscure legal provision called the anti injunction act his his his analysis here is correct right like it's it's p he's right as far as i.

"Twenty seventeen case so his backpedaling was was pretty swift let's again kind of set the stage chevron deference right is the issue when congress delegates authority to an executive branch branch agency and then the question is are they clear in their delegation or were they ambiguous in the delegation and if they were clear in the delegation then congress's intent controls but if and here's from the actual chevron decision here's what the supreme court says the court as well as the agency must give to the unambiguously expressed intent of congress if however the court determines that congress has not directly addressed the precise question at issue the court does not impose its own construction of the statute rather if the statute is silent or in big us with respect to the specific issue the question for the court is whether the agency's answer is based on a permissible construction of the statute so in other words if it's ambiguous or if it's silent than the courts instead of just interpreting the law the way they see it are supposed to defer to the agency's interpretation of the law and you can see why this is a key tool in the right wing judicial activist playbook and it is why push back on on twitter everywhere else people have said conservatives decry chevron deference that's not true the only people who are opposed to chevron deference are conservatives who want to great expand the power of the judiciary because that's what this does right this says the agency doesn't get to get to determine anymore overturned chevron deference the position justice gorsuch taken is no court should review that dinovite right that is as a matter of first impression on their own and it doesn't matter what the agency has has determined and as you and i have noticed as you and i have noted what that does is transfers power away from the executive and legislative branches and to the judicial branch which is about to be an i mean is substantially conservative but is about to become even more conservative for decades to come and so now judge kavanagh's position on chevron deference is set forth in a case again it descent us telecom not descent as but all of his high profile writings are that i've been able to find our are from these descents it's it's where you get the opportunity really to articulate your vision pretty clearly right like i mean that's that's where we got right and you know it was gorsuch descent in the gutierrez brazil decision that gave us the clue again it didn't require sherlock holmes here too when when gorsuch says boy if i'm ever on the supreme court i'm going to overturn chevron deference like that you know that wasn't a huge amount of slough thing that we did but but that's where these these do tend to where it's their manifesto it's like they start a new chant no that's exactly right and and well i don't let me stop myself from going down that rabbit trail this was the dc circuit upholding the fcc's application of the net neutrality rules and and cavenaugh descended from that and here's how he put it right in saying the fcc did not have the authority to reverse it self and adopt the net neutrality rules he said if an agency wants to exercise expansive authority expansive regulatory authority over some major social or economic activity regulating cigarettes banning physician assisted suicide eliminating telecommunications rate filing requirements or regulating greenhouse gas emissions for example and those are obviously all real cases and ambiguous grant of statutory authority is not enough congress must clearly authorize an agency to take such a major regulatory action so notice that what that does is that converts chevron deference into chevron deference unless it's a major action and then if it's a major action courts get to decide how clearly the statute sets forth the.

"And you know again it goes on if you want to go back to one oh one and one seventeen in which we discussed this case extensively that kind of rhetoric that kind of consider what the woman is going through here if used on the other side would be instantly pilloried and parodied by the right but when it is employed in an antiabortion case it is celebrate i i don't think there's there's much to add with respect to where judge cavenaugh comes down on the fundamental right to an abortion i think that he has been very very careful and in fact in this case right in garza versus haagen he brackets his comments with all parties to this case recognize roe v wade and planned parenthood versus casey as precedents we must follow and all parties have sumed for purposes of this case that jane doe has a right under supreme court precedent to obtain an abortion in the united states again that's not usually something you have to bracket when you write an opinion of lower case rightly the people before us agree that the law is the law while you know no no kidding i think that bracketing is there on purpose they've been playing these these a lot of people on this list have been playing the long game of you know looking respectable and like they value precedent and trying to try to do you think they've been essentially running for supreme court justice for quite a while yeah look i will make i've said this analogy on the air before but a friend of mine his uncle who was a congressman from pennsylvania told me you know very candidly over dinner he said yeah every single person in the house of representatives and the senate and every governor they all look in the mirror every day and think one day that that they that they could and will be president right that's that's how you get there and i think that analogy applies here when you are on the dc circuit court of appeals that has long been that's merrick garland is the chief judge of that court right like that is a feeder court to the supreme court and when you are nominated there at age forty i guess it was forty two sorry but like right when when you're nominated there at a time in which other forty year old lawyers are doing things like the opening arguments podcast you believe i'm not i'm not at all better you think you know that's like being one of the you know up and coming governors or being thirty six and given the keynote convention at the democratic national convention right like that that you believe you are going to be on the supreme court something yeah and and i think that's little make andrew a judge let's we can do it phil do the podcast right who cares yeah yeah anymore there's going to be ruled who's gonna stop you is there a law that says you can't do a podcast even so doesn't matter anymore i don't get does yeah there's no law that says it cannot play basketball exact that's this presidency so there's them than it's fun it yeah and again i want to just add parenthetically on this the reason i haven't said this explicitly so i i want to say this here judge cavanaugh is very very smart right he is a yale law school grad he is a supreme court clerk his writing is fairy very good it's better than gore such right it is he is an exceptionally talented jurist he is incredibly smart if your criteria for supreme court nominee is the gorsuch criteria right if it is is this guy smart enough to be on the supreme court the answer is fairy obviously yes my issue with brett cavanaugh is his judicial philosophy right yeah and again you know he falls very squarely into the textualist judicial activist from the right category and to illustrate that we're going to go back to my favorite cra criticism of the supreme court chevron deference right and it will not surprise you to learn that judge cavanaugh has written about chevron difference he is taken a slightly more nuanced position than judge gorsuch although it is one that he walks back in that speech that i talked about at the beginning of the segment right it is but the but the position that he is taken in a case right and again this is a.

"Way that is an incorrect belief but we don't even need to delve into that they say that the significant monetary penalty for failure to submit the form constitutes a substantial burden on the exercise of religion they contend moreover that the government has less restrictive ways of ensuring that the employees of religious organizations have access to contraception without making the organizations complicit in their scheme in this way and the dc circuit said get outta here with that but of course the supreme court reversed kavanagh's analysis here begins with noting that some people believe hobby lobby quote did not go far enough in the direction of religious freedom and of quote and then he says look so in order to balance out all the needs here we need to take a look at the interest protected by hobby lobby and he says under hobby lobby the regulations substantially burdened the religious organizations exercise of religion because they require the organization to take an action contrary to their sincere religious beliefs and he writes this parenthesis submitting the form and parenthesis or else pay significant monetary penalties again i just wanna point out how unprecedented the idea that complying with a neutral government form is of french mile my taxes it's against my religion there's a direct kate right as a jehovah's witness case from the nineteen seventies in which the jove is witnesses said that right we don't believe in paying taxes and supreme arguments media religion yeah whatever the fewest paperwork things let's start coming up with that and then and then he says and this is i think the most telling of kavanagh's analysis the panel opinion concludes however that there is no substantial burden on plaintiffs exercise of religion in particular the plan the panel opinion says the plaintiffs are wrong to think they would be complicit in moral wrongdoing if they submit this form as required by the government right that seems like the thing that courts do right here's cavenaugh says but to reiterate judicially second guessing the reasonableness or correctness as opposed to the sincerity of pulling tiffs religious beliefs is exactly what the supreme court in hobby lobby told us not to do so there you have it right judge kavanagh's position is if a religious institution says that something interferes with their sincerely held religious beliefs than it does then the court may not insult to their release to even have to explain themselves fill out a form do anything wrecked correct so it's it's why wanted to juxtapose that with your joking comment about the oh a religion obviously that we need to well this court will have no problems saying that the oas religion is going to be one of those wacky santa ria leg beliefs and so you know that doesn't have any kind of bearing they're going to put us squarely under employment division versus mma it's only if you fall under the you know registered right wing extreme fundamentalist conservative christian religions that you get this extreme deference to your sincerely held religious beliefs okay so that's the first position that i think next supreme court justice brad kavanagh is going to advance the accommodations view of separation of church and state and i think we are going to wind up with overruling either explicitly or implicitly the lemon test and i think we're going to be left with a position that says at the supreme court the government ken prefer religious exercises to non religious ones it must not be neutral as between religion and secularism now let's talk about roe v wade and i own assay on a bracket here this is a tiny bit of a rabbit trail it's gonna come up a couple of times and some of the other cases we talk about the other really clear i can't even call it a dog whistle right is the language that judge cavenaugh uses of liberty in adopting the extreme hard core right that says any kind of regulations interfere with individual liberty but you know not interfering with actual liberty that's that's not where we use that word and again that comes to mind because we're about to talk about abortion where actual liberty is at stake right like.

"The texas policy that basically permitted so long as it was identified as student led these overly sectarian prayers at texas football games and the cavenaugh amicus brief that was cited by the dissent in that case argued that allowing students to get up to give sectarian religious prayers before football games had quote plausible secular purposes including to solemnize the event to promote good sportsmanship and student safety and to establish the improperly environment for the competition where governmental body expresses a plausible secular purpose for an enactment courts should generally defer to that stated intent the cavenaugh brief here was overtly hostile to the lemon test and i'm going to talk about as a judge okay that's an advocacy piece i'm gonna talk about the most important descent that cavanaugh wrote while on the dc circuit very still is right now that in my view indicates that brett cavanaugh takes the position that i would call the accommodation est view of the separation of church and state and what that says is this is as articulated by various right wing scholars and adopted by scalia and it i think is very likely to be the future of the supreme court the idea is the separation of church and state should be construed narrowly the first amendment's prohibition on establishment of religion is meant to pro to prevent the united states from having an established church the church of england but it does not mean that the state must remain neutral as between religion and secularism it does not mean that the state may not prefer religious expressions to non religious ones it is in my view a radical reshaping of the first amendment and it is where i think we are headed and and and as evidence for that i would sight so i'm gonna talk about a couple of different cavanaugh cases all of these cases involve cavenaugh dissenting from on bonk decisions of the dc circuit that were overwhelmingly the other way right so remember the us court of appeals for the dc circuit hears cases in three judge panels and when a case is of particular importance or or is particularly potentially cert worthy one of the things that a petitioner can do is move to have the case reheard on bunk by the entire circuit and those cases have higher precedential value because the entire circuit is bound by an unbuttoned decision until the court sitting on bonk reverses itself right so it is these are the most significant cases that the dc circuit hears and cavenaugh has been in the minority on a bunch of them and has dissented very very strenuously the first for purposes of understanding this accommodation est issue is a case called priests for life versus department of health and human services it is a twenty fifteen on buck decision it was an eight three decision so cavanaugh was on the three and this case was extending hobby lobby to invalidate the obama administration's procedural opt out that allowed religious organizations to opt out of providing contraceptives under the affordable care act if they provided a notice to the insurers and to their employees that said hey look you're working for religious institution and we don't agree with contraceptives and so therefore you're gonna have to get coverage for contraceptives from some other source okay now again again you wanna talk overton window do we have to provide that kind of exception to the law after hobby lobby the argument was you you clearly do and and after this decision it was actually even worse at the supreme court because the supreme court ultimately struck down this accommodation and said that required too much of religious institution here's how cavenaugh described the quote pernicious effect of this exception in his dissent right so this is the language that is most favorable to his side he says many prominent religious organizations around the country including the plaintiffs in this case have bitterly objected to this scheme this optout scheme they complain that submitting the required form right so that's what they have to do they have to send a or the insurance company and they have to notify their employees contravenes their religious beliefs because in doing so in their view mix them complicit in providing coverage for contraceptives right so thick with that logic if we tell you your contraceptives are not covered and then you go out and get additional inter well that makes us complicit so if we just don't tell you and you don't know and don't have them than our consciences clean anyway i'll i'll just let that hang in the air including some that they believe operate as abortifacents and by the.

"justice brett kavanaugh" Discussed on Opening Arguments

"I have friends who are washington's right like there's nothing but but but this guy is a washington insider right he has had shady from a fourth tier law school from one of the very lowest rated law schools in the country widener in delaware but he is the guy who recommended neal gorsuch he is the guy who has been masterminding all of trump's federal judiciary picks and he implored the chair of the federalist society leonard leo to take a leave of absence a couple of days ago and they are holed up together and they are discussing how best to find the ideal right wing judicial activist candidate for the supreme court and mcgann publicly has said he is looking for a justice who is quote like gorsuch right so here's why i think brett cavanaugh is most like gorsuch and asier they're just as a refresher on some of the basics there's no like limit to who he could nominate like he could nominate literally anybody right it's like oh yes sort of degree or something you have to certification you have to have but it's just you think that you'll he'll tend to use somebody that will be easier to get through even though they control enough votes still you don't wanna take too many chances with chief justice ben shapiro or something like that but i do right by you wonder what in the seven people he met with he didn't throw in one curveball just for fun like steven seagal or something like well i think mike lee is a pretty big curve ball but i but yeah i i am shocked that that they didn't use that as a as a trigger the libs opportunity although i mean that's that's kind of where amy amy coney barrett comes from i mean there is in any same universe talking about somebody with several months of judicial experience as a supreme court nominee would be enough to get you laughed out of the rook it ought to be so yeah it let me go back to answering that question right we saw a couple of days ago a comment from susan collins that people are i think drastically over waiting right what what senator collins said was i will not support a justice who is shown outright hostility to roe v wade even even i non non lawyer smith's after that way i mean i believe that maybe in her heart she probably doesn't want to see rovigo like i think she would probably answer that on a lie detector tests and say like no i don't wanna see it overturn but it seemed to me you could tell me if i'm wrong it seemed to me that her answer just really left open a ton of options like a someone will just say oh no i respect precedent and then they'll also say and be they'll say well i'm not gonna comment on how i would decide a certain in case or whatever and then that gives her enough you know plausible deniability for the next supreme court justice core such to point out to eat very easily vote to overturn roe v wade yeah i think that's exactly right and let's let me bracket that by pointing out that she was asked the follow up question well you voted for neal gorsuch and said i don't believe justice gorsuch will vote to overturn roe v wade right and and the only way in which you can make that statement is if you were standard of belief is somebody has to say put me on the court so i can overturn roe v wait now look that's that that standard by the way exists qualifies william prior who was the third justice on my list right trick libs and it suggests to me that the trump white house is not going to take the most combative approach which in my view is why i think they are unlikely to go with larson or barrett as well and both of those have a barrett in particular has statements that i think would be very very difficult to put up a opposite susan collins cavanaugh on the other hand has no such statements we're gonna talk about where he's gonna come down on roe v wade obviously in this episode but but but but that goes back to the meat of your comments which is.

"Right so cabinet brett cava what are you got yeah so as you said in the intro this is my prediction for who i think donald trump will nominate to fill anthony kennedy supreme court seat that nomination is going to come on monday so as that comes out and win were correct you will be able to distribute this around as a resource and you will know before everything else comes out and let me explain right like why i'm picking all right so there couple of factors that that go into that in episode one eighty six i talked about who i thought were the three most likely candidates to be selected and the differing reasons why eat one might be selected so back in one eighty six i benefited who i thought the three most likely candidates for trump to nominate to the supreme court would be as of right now we know that donald trump has interviewed seven people or at least that appears to be the scuttle butt from reporting and two of the three people on my list breath cavanaugh and joan larsen are two of the seven people that trump has a reportedly interviewed the others are senator mike lee from utah i think that is not a plausible candidate do we have some andrus second chance supreme court justice in here andrews two seven zero no my science my second yeah i will give you my second chance pick actually i hadn't thought about that but that's a great we'll we'll play the game that way too no i'm i'm i'm excluding folks off of the the interview list right so on larson we're both on my list and we're both interviewed mike lee not a plausible candidate judge a mole th apar who is a judge of the sixth circuit he is forty nine he has a ten year history as a judge but only one year on the sixth circuit court of appeals and i think that is going to make him a more difficult candidate for the reasons that i'm about to describe the other i guess the the person i would describe as my second chance law firm candidate would be raymond catholic also of the sixth circuit he's fifty one catholic the reason he was almost my pick is that he went to the university of michigan to give a an address on just how bad chevron deference is he is he's very similar to cavanaugh the guy who i think is is going to be the pick he is also a former anthony kennedy clerk he's if i'm wrong i think i'm likely to be wrong in that direction so when you're listening to this in the future if it is supreme court justice raymond catholic that's my that's my second choice and then and the person who is getting all the buzz over the past couple of days seventh circuit judge amy coney barrett who is forty six years old and and let me just say very very briefly bear it is a less qualified joan larsen she is a she has been on the seventh circuit since november of twenty seventeen and has no judicial experience prior to that and i just think that despite the fact that she is the darling of conservative circles and she's forty six and she's a former president of the federalist society and she's a super conservative catholic like i just think that it's going to be a problem to have a nominee that independent agencies are not going to rate as well qualified and i base this off of off of a couple of different things right so the the first is i i wanna look to how the people who are making this pick through donald trump are making this pick right because i mean you know look let's be honest donald trump does not have judicial philosophy donald trump does not have fr i doubt he knows what the federalist society is right what he does have though is he has white house counsel don mcgann who was his campaign lawyer he is the definition of a republican insider right he is when you say drain the swamp this guy is an alligator in the swamp right like this is very definition of washington insider again look like i don't want to overly dump on those people you know.

"Hello and welcome to opening arguments this is episode one hundred eighty nine i'm heroes thomas smith that over there is andrew torres how you doing andrew i am fantastic thomas how're you i'm pretty good i'm curious why you're so good if we're covering the supreme court justice you know the the supreme court ruined or justice cavanaugh but okay i'm i'll go with your your optimistic attitude right now tell you what here's something that maybe we'll we'll cheer everybody up we had mentioned i believe in the qna episode we did and by the way thanks to everybody who came out for that that's always fun to to interact with you guys on the chat and everything we had mentioned we wanted to do some sort of donation from opening arguments and find a good charity so we're still working on that but we wanted to announce we were thinking of doing it in a sort of a matching donation format so we'll come up with with an amount weaken do and we'll match listener donations and that way we can do double the amount of good that we might have been able to do so that's kind of what we had in mind and hey maybe we'll take maybe we'll take some suggestions i know it's actually hard between andrew and i think like okay which we're gonna decision do we want to donate to because there's so many good ones but maybe we'll take some listener suggestions or maybe we can throw up a listener poll or something like that after we get a few that might be interesting what do you think yeah i think that's i think that's a great idea on both counts and you know we are continuing to look for ways to help and so i i love this idea yeah awesome maybe something focused around i dunno reproductive rights gay rights getting democrats into office any number of those things would be would be good for our show but works for that we're just going to figure out of course it takes patriot awhile to figure out the months revenue for for june so we're gonna get that all ironed out and we're going to come up with what we can do and make it happen try to do some do a little bit of good in the country what do you think andrew yeah absolutely and i want to add to that that you know we mentioned last week that you know we were going to talk about good news this week and and we are no good but it's but that's going to be pushed on it's going to be pushed off until tuesday because today we are going to do a detailed breakdown of the next supreme court justice brad kavanagh here's why i'm chuckling because we totally needed to move the good news episode because what we did last time with gorsuch was as listeners may well remember we moved the gorsuch episode where andrew perfectly predicted that the next supreme court justice was gonna be gorsuch we moved it to the tuesday episode and then the announcement came out monday and it made it look like andrew didn't predict it like he was reacting to it so not making the same as i can't wait for this prediction to now be incorrect that's going to be make it really doubly hilarious that's why we're not moving this one well at ad and we'll talk about that but but i just want to say that in the good news episode is also a a plan of action right one of the things that you know you and i have talked about off line and that i'm i'm really happy to share on the air is you know how to incorporate the information that we put out make sure that you know were understanding what's going on and and also that we're not just kind of like feeding the pit of despair of you know it's terrible and everything is going to be impossibly worse and it never ever gets better and and you know one of the things that is i my leading candidate to take the place of elections have consequences or at least two to go alongside elections have consequences is you know fighting holding actions sucks but the only thing that sucks worse than that is not fighting holding actions that quite as pithy i i need i need i need a speechwriter to barrack obama to polish that one up a little bit for me but but yeah you know we wanna we wanna continue to to sort of.
