"Business. Let's get on with it and meet Dr Johnson's Johnny's been. Hello, John. Hello, records. So nice to be on your program. Well, thank you for being on. It's a great honor. I need to tell the I don't know how long we've known each other, but it's got to be at least 30 or 40 years, isn't it? Doctor? It's me, e. I think we were both five years old. When we first met, Then I think we were five. I think exactly correct. Um, we both go back to if I recall your dad or your uncle or somebody was one of my campaign committee. When I first ran for Congress many many years ago. That was my dad. That's correct, He woz, and that's how I got introduced You and then for years that we belong to the same organizations and And in fact, you instructed one of my kids in school. As I recall, I did. And if I recall, he did well and I went on and is becoming a very successful attorney himself. He would like to feel that I'm sure but anyway, uh, John and will may in a way of introduction. I know that you were struggling, putting the midnight Oh, filing a brief before the Supreme Court earlier in the week. And I'm assuming you've got that done, right? Well, we wait. We got that one was in in another case, but our most recent briefing the Supreme Court, we also burn the midnight oil but very important brief and the Hawaii versus Trump case dealing with executive orders on immigration. Well, I think that would be a great place for us to start. I'm sure a lot of our listeners don't have the understanding of exactly what happens and how the court works. And why. Professor Ph. D. J. D professor in Orange, California is doing things that Supreme Court with respect to something that's happening in Hawaii. So I thought, maybe if you could give us a little bit of background, maybe even talk a little bit about your Early years when you were clerking for Justin's Thomas, that might be a good introduction, and then we can lead into what these challenges are that you're experiencing sure and and I'll do it by way of a since we're in the week after Mother's Day of telling a story from my mother, who passed away a few years ago now When I when I graduate from college and then went on to graduate school and got just not just a master's degree but a PhD and graduated from that she sent me a set of coffee mug that says, I have a B, A and an M. A. And a PhD Now All I need is a J. O B s. I went off the law school to get a lot of Greek is my wife and I both determined that the prospects of A long and solid career in the academy. For somebody of my political views was not very strong, and she also was a PhD and the chance that we would get it the same. University or not, even in the same city was you know to to remote So I went and got it. There's a law degree and shot right out of law school. I got a law clerkship, First of the Court of Appeals and then at the Supreme Court in United States, um There are only four law clerks per justice every year. That's 36 people out of all of the law students in the country that graduate every year. It's fairly prestigious and fairly select group of people. So I wrote my mom a note. I said, I got that job, and she said, Ah, Lot clerkship. Is that like an internship when you're going to get a real job, so mothers have a wonderful way of keeping you humble. But what the law clerk to do is help of the justice. Each justice's chambers in the Supreme Court. United States is like a many law firm. Um, the senior partner, the managing partner, and, uh, you know, the name partner all rolled up in one is the justice but the four associates That helped him do the work of the court or her do the work of the court. Those air the law clerks and Ondas Justice Thomas reminded me when I came in. It's an intense year for the law clerk because, as he said, you're the sprinter. I'm on the marathon runner. I'm gonna be here for 25 years. So you've got to give me every ounce of effort you have the year you're here and so that I can keep doing this year in and year out. And that's what we did. We helped we did the research we way helped the drug justice with drafting of opinions, Of course, the final work product and the ideas and the positions are always his. But the law clerks Have a tremendous opportunity to help in that process, which is very significant and also the one aspect of our government that most people don't see much about. It's not on These bandits not and press conferences like the executive or C Span with legislative hearings and what have you what the justices do is behind closed doors until they issue their opinions. Well, we have one justice issues their opinions on TV now. Well that together and some of them, you know, and sometimes they'll be cantankerous disputes and so justices will read their opinions from the bench. Um, particularly if it's a dissenting opinion, and they're really upset with the direction the majority went. Doesn't happen often, but it does on occasion, and it always gets the Supreme Court bar Watchers, you know, kind of gets their attention. Well, did you get paid for this? Yes, there was a full paid government attorney salaried position on dirt, and like I said, it's it's only for one year. Which is phenomenal year, But it's also such an intense years. Probably not something you could keep up at that pace for for much longer than that. So here's the key was mother happy? Mother was happy. That's right. Mother was happy, and she realized my brother actually came and visited one time and got some wonderful pictures with the justice. My wife and kids were came visited the justice chambers. We have a wonderful picture of My son sitting on the justices me reaching for the candy jar on the coffee table in front of that double. Definitely be an heirloom. Well, John, we're coming up with a break. I know you're very familiar with the radio world. Having spent many times in radio and in TV is a guest. And an expert witnesses, so to speak, But I'd like to pick up when we come back. Maybe you could talk about some of those cases and it always like if you can help us to figure out how are we? The listeners can.

"I said that you said that you said you wouldn't make announced your decision on recusal. And you wouldn't commit to recusing. But again, I think the public has a right to know that now. Three of these justices have worked on the Republican side on a major major issue related to a presidential election. One thing I wanted to revisit quickly. Smiley V home. The reason I asked about that is that this would be unprecedented. When we right now we're not unprecedented time where we have a president who refuses to commit to a peaceful transfer of power. Working to undermine the integrity of this election. And yesterday you wouldn't commit to recuse yourself from the case we just talked about, But now we're considering your confirmation to the highest court in the land in the midst of this election, and in Smiley V home, where the Supreme Court held that a governor is part of the legislative process. And therefore a Legislature cannot unilaterally change election rules. That could be very important because we have a number of swing states. We have Legislature of one party governor of the other. And we have this precedent that has been on the books for nearly 90 years. Do you think that that is established Supreme Court precedent? It said that a governor is part of the legislative process. I actually I'm not familiar with that case, but it is President. Obviously, it's a president of the court, okay? I wanted to turn to one last issue and that his first Amendment and freedom of the press near and dear to my heart. My dad was a journalist Hugo everywhere for a good story and carried a lot about freedom of the press. And regrettably, our right to a free and independent preps is under assault. We have witnessed unprecedented attacks on journalists and journalism in the past several years. Our president frequently uses his Twitter account to attack news organizations. He has accused the media being fake news and called them the enemy of the people. Obviously, we also have journalists overseas that are under attack by dictators. I want to pay special tribute to those brave journalists, his dog in pursuit of the truth, Never waivered despite threats of imprisonment, violence and even death journalists. Like Journalists like Jamal Shoji and the men and women of the Capital Gazette. Their legacy is proof that fear will not silence. Fax. The founders recognize that a free press is vital to a vibrant and strong democracy, and that's why we need Supreme Court justices who understand the importance of protecting the right Of journalists. First time V. Sullivan. You know that's the landmark ruling and the support of the First Amendment protections for the press and protecting journalists unless they say something untrue with actual malice. Justice. Thomas has expressed skepticism with that case, writing in his concurrence, and McGee v. Cosby that if the Constitution does not require public figures to satisfy an actual malice standard in state law, defamation suits that neither should we. Do you agree with Justice Thomas that the court should we consider the actual malice standard because it is inconsistent. With the original meaning of the Constitution. Well, Senator Klobuchar can't really expressive you on either New York Times be Solomon or Justice Thomas's critique of it without violating the principle that I have repeatedly stated. It all nominees follow that. You know, I can't comment on matters of litigation or grade precedents that the court has already decided. I also want to ask you about how journalists have been deterred from doing their jobs under the threat of jail time after the Supreme Court's 1972 decision in Branzburg v. Hayes, many federal courts of appeals have recognized What's called the reporter's privilege, which protects a reporter's first Amendment right to protect his or her sources from disclosure in certain circumstances. The seventh Circuit by the way, in which you serve Has rejected a constitutional basis for a reporter's privilege under its original public meaning does the first Amendment protects a reporter's decision to protect a confidential source. Again. That would be eliciting a legal conclusion from me, which I can't answer in a hypothetical form in the hearing. It's also a question as you point out, that's that's closely related the ones that are being litigated. One last try. Do you agree that if reporters cannot protect their sources, they're less likely to be able to find confidential witnesses willing to share information. Confidential informers willing to share information about issues of public importance. Well, Senator that would both be a policy question, a matter of public policy, which I can't expressive you on and you know, presumably also one that might factor into the question. Of what the First Amendment protects. So again. That's not something that I can give an opinion on in this context. Okay? I guess my last thing I'll just say is, I hope people watching out there are going to follow the tracks of this record. And I'm going to vote. Thank you. Thank you, Senator. Sasse, chairman. Welcome back. Senator Van Sassen, Nebraska, a Republican. Start with how judges should look back on their career at the end of it, So if you are confirmed 30 or 40 years from now, when you hang up your robe and sit on the front porch in South Bend, or wherever, probably with a gaggle of grandkids around you. How will you judge whether or not you had a successful career as a judge in justice? I would judge whether I had a successful career by whether I had always acted with integrity. Whether I always followed the rule of law and resisted the temptation to twist the law in the direction that I wanted it to go. Whether I had treated my colleagues finally and with collegiate ality, whether I had mentored and mental health and had good relationships with my clerks..

Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

Supreme Court upholds exemptions to Obamacare contraceptive mandate
"And now as promised, we're going to talk about these two Supreme court decisions that were rendered Earlier this morning and a 7 to 2 vote. The Supreme Court ruled this morning in favor of two California churches, arguing they should not have to face employment discrimination lawsuits brought by former teachers. The ruling makes it so that religious schools are exempt from most employment discrimination claims, expanding religious freedom, and the Supreme Court today also cleared the way for the Trump administration to expand exemptions for employers who have religious or moral objections to Complying with Obama's care, Obamacare's contraceptive mandate and we're going to talk with David Levin, Professor. You see Hastings College of the law about these rulings and other Supreme Court decision is expected to come. Welcome David Levin. Always good to have you with us. Good morning. Good morning to you and well, we got a couple of examples here. The court, citing with religious groups and religious liberty, don't wait. We sure do. I think this is gonna end up being a trilogy with one from a couple weeks ago involving those private schools in Montana, where the Supreme Court said that Montana and many other states could not limit public school funds. That school's off school funds to go to religious schools and in these two as you, said, the one involving two schools down in Southern California, where 11 plaintiff alleged that she was the victim of a discrimination. The other plaintiff alleges that she was Victim of disability discrimination because she had told the school that she had breast cancer in both cases is to teachers were not given new contracts well, the Supreme Court said that under was called the Ministerial Exception. The's teachers who are primarily secular teachers. They teach things like English math spelling to fifth and sixth graders, but they also letter daily prayer. They also at least from a workbook did some religious instruction that that was enough for them to come within the ministerial exception. And basically, it's for this for the institution. In this case, the Catholic schools to say who it is, who is responsible for inculcating students with faith, etcetera, and that the government shouldn't second guess that opinion by seven to to the Supreme Court agreed with that idea, so it blows a huge hole. Ian Discrimination Law your number earlier in the term. That was the case about protection of lesbian and gays in transgender under title seven well in the religious school contacts that's gone this morning. And then if you want to go into the second, we're going to the 2nd 1 I want to. I want to break them down with you. But okay, we'll come back. Alright. The other one's called litter Sisters of the poor, and this has to do with the contraception mandate in the affordable care act and this causes. The statute requires contraception to be included among the health. The kind of Procedures that are available under the affordable health care under Obamacare, and that's caused some consternation. We've had other cases the famous hobby lobby case, saying that well if a privately held corporation and religious scruples they didn't have to offer contraception and then the Supreme Court in the year that Justice Scalia died. I asked the parties, the Obama administration and the parties, including the Little Sisters of the Poor, the lead plaintiff here to try and come up with some accommodation because the little sisters even objected to the idea that they would have to tell their health insurers that they didn't want to give the contraception. Coverage. And so instead, the by this point in the Trump administration was involved because of the change of administration in the Trump administration, came up with a very broad exemption was for religious and moral reasons that you could just as an employer. You could just say we don't want to provide contraceptive. Coverage. And while there's some nuance to it, basically as you stand by 70 to Justice Thomas for the majority said that was okay that we could have this big big exception. In the affordable care act both for religion and for moral

"Did the justice Thomas offer any thoughts about his future as we noted he is seventy one it is far as I know IT help healthy and of course the Supreme Court justices go that's so hard the more the middle aged doesn't ever indicate anything at all about retiring or if you plan to stay on for the long term but he said says only that it's called a job for life and that's the way he thinks that down I hope he said a long time personally I think this is going to be his great moment I mean he's spent many years writing lots of dissent now he is a senior member of the court there recorded for the moving in a conservative direction many of them look to him for leadership a lot of the ideas that he wrote about in the sense in in a mine are in the minority such is thinking about the minister of state are really that their time is calm so I think this will be his mom and and I think far from retiring I think he will actually have greater prominence in the in the in the near future did he indicate that that sense of becoming an attorney and prominent and and conservative have his views at all evolved over that period of time become a concert of well yeah I mean one of the amazing things about justice Thomas with Mary surprised people are may not as he's always reading committee recently Norma some out and on all sorts of things you know when I first met justice Thomas I think he was reading about the crusades any I just read a lot how dozens of books about the crusades and have lots to say about it it wasn't relevant to what we're talking about that he was reading and he wanted to talk about it so he he is the only is reading and thinking so I'm sure you could say that his his thinking has involved but not sure that it that I will could point to anything in particular is that with that relates to his church for this but I know if he's always learning new things I mean I I do think that his willingness to speak to may suggest I hope I desire to tell the story in in in that a kind of an evolution to I mean I hope that part of the reason was that I think it's an important story for people to hear and especially young people beyond its use in theaters and any other place we really hope to get it into high schools this is February black history month an error we February every black history month there are many stories about that are told in schools and and black lives matter now the new sixteen nineteen project of the New York times you know filled the curriculum with stories of slavery in victimhood and at amylose have a place I hope that we can all get justice thomas' film into schools and I hope that he's come through but I've I've I believe that having to tell the story is a is a is a is an awareness that his story has a greater importance than just the truth about him and his life and that I hope that we can do that I mean that's a long process it's it's tough to get into schools it's very political but we're very committed to doing that absolutely well if you have any future contact with them to ask you become all this program we'd love to have that I've got about thirty seconds tell me about any reactions from his wife Virginia during the documentary what is the only one that we interviewed and she had a hard time being interviewed and perhaps even harder than justice Thomas he cried several times during the interview she's in the some justice Thomas has not seen it yet she cried when she watched it she told me so I think she is I know that she's happy with the film but I think it was it it's just hard to under estimate how hard it was for them to relive these things there say that would be the case we must pause briefly stay on the line will speak off there Michael pack and we'll be back of the beheaded show from Westwood One right it's Jamie progresses number.

"In Wilmington Delaware good evening yes Mister and Mister pack I read about your doctor in our teacher websites are and I'm finally glad to someone is coming out to tell justice Thomas's compelling American story as a black conservative came up for almost nothing and what we had and overcame always optional on the Supreme Court and up I just want to say on a personal note you I wanna thank you again for this documentary I'm ashamed of my senator Biden and what he did it justice Thomas and what justice Thomas so so currently called on national TV live electronic lynching of himself your comments are well I completely agree and I appreciate the your listeners compliments help yeah she gets a chance to see the film it is true that that is the senator Biden does not come off well in the documentary and it you know just how tough about what it was like to be questioned by him and in the first part of the hearing he that question justice Thomas about natural law and he knew the intricacies of apple jurisprudence to try to get justice Thomas to talk about abortion and rode the way that he did not succeed in doing it but you can see in the film that he had he tried and he has apologized senator Biden has led me to hell for his treatment of her and he doesn't look too good in that part of my documentary either but he has not apologized to justice Thomas I think it would be nice if the apologize to both of them so I agree with your listeners very good day thank you doc procedure call he's been around a while I had the really realize how long I just to look at him the justices the history of the US Supreme Court by time served there have been in the entire history of the country there have been one hundred fourteen Supreme Court justices and Clarence Thomas is the senior justice on the court to today nineteenth all time which I find a rather remarkable it did seem like he'd been on there of that logs of al well there are old enough to remember the nineteen ninety one hearings it seems like yesterday but it wasn't yesterday but in in a way because the cabin I hearing was such a replay of the Thomas hearing it all makes it feel closer in time but it's authentic interesting to recall that the you know the those that aren't enough for member may think that they need a hello Kitty is justice Thomas physical all which she did not she accused him of a using inappropriate language at the workplace such as talking about pornographic movies and everyone agrees that that sexual harassment but it's not of the physical assault hi Andy she claimed it happened and he claimed it didn't but those kind of things kind of get lost in a get caught up in the in the current is that you know the current me too movement and and we forget but it but you're right it's been a long time he's been on the court awhile and he could be on the court another long while and he's only he's seventy one I believe I tried yeah that's right so yeah he can be on there for another fifteen years plus and I and I hope he is he's been very influential member of the court something that everybody knows because he doesn't speak in oral argument but he's very active in every other way on the court he writes a lot of opinions he's written over six hundred opinions thirty percent more than any other sitting Supreme Court justice like justice Ginsburg or any of the others any every year he had a right way more opinions than anybody else that is very productive because very active in the behind the scenes talk and negotiate and the circulating of opinions and every other justice would agree that whatever their politics out he and his wife could be more influential going forward I must say that that every time I've ever heard him speak it and has been that much fact that that trailer we just heard was a substantial portion of the total time that I've heard of speak other than the fact that I was at this that work with the the hearings for his confirmation that took place in remember of vividly his his response to the questioning is talk of of a high tech lynching and so on and so forth he seems very well spoken I mean there are some people who are smart but they don't speak very well and he seems to be smart and speak very well deserved curious did you in your documentary come up with the explanation not the he owes us what about discourage did he explain why he doesn't tend to ask a lot of questions he did it I'm in a he goes into more detail on the documentary but that the essences they eat in a war first of all we the public only hear oral argument but it's a small percentage of of the entire consideration of the case which in its appeals process obviously on the Supreme Court and most of its conducted in writing and he feels that the oral argument part of it he it is it should be given to the advocates there to advocates one on each side and each given thirty minutes in oral argument to make their case I need to question I just met yeah takes time away from the advocate it's not in addition to the thirty minute sitcoms rather than thirty minutes and he feels like they need their time to make their case and as he pointed out in the history of the Supreme Court it's been if it's a it's been mostly for most of its history there haven't been very many questions oral argument it's only and the argument has been taped and the the mat and the public at here at that it's become more of an occasion furtive justices to talk and use the time maybe to communicate to the public as well as other justices justice Thomas does not think that's the right way to use oral argument there enough of more to come one.

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

Former Prosecutor Linda Fairstein Says 'When They See Us' 'Is Full Of Distortions'
"This Netflix series that has come out called when they see us. And it's about the central park joggers, the central park jogger and the central park, five. So this is long been a hot point of contention in New York City tunnel from famously called for the death penalty to be applied to the central park five. There's a group of five lack men, who were basically, accused of rape of a jogger. And then later there was DNA evidence, a person came forward and made an admission that he was the person who committed the rape only his DNA was found on the woman, the way that this has been taken by the press is that none of these other five people were involved in anything bad, and all of this was basically black men being railroad in New York City for no reason. Well, now Linda fairstein, who's a prosecutor in the case has a piece in the Wall Street Journal that is. It's pretty devastating to this narrative here's what she talked about. She says at about nine pm, April nineteenth nineteen thousand nine a large group of young men gathered on the corner of one hundred and ten th street and Fifth Avenue for the purpose of robbing and beating innocent people in central park. There are more than thirty riders the women in the win the woman known as the central park jogger Tricia, mainly was not the only victim, eight others were attacked, including two men were beaten so savagely that required hospitalization for head injuries, reporters and filmmakers have explored this story countless times from numerous perspectives. Almost always focusing on five attackers one female jogger but each has missed the larger picture of what happened that terrible night, a write in the dark that resulted in the apprehension of more than fifteen teenagers who set upon multiple victims that associate path Natasha's race confessed in two thousand two to the rape of malay-, and that the district attorney consequently, vacated the charges against the five after they had served their sentences had led some of these reporters and filmmakers to assume the prosecution had no basis upon which to charge the five suspects in nineteen eighty nine. So it is with filmmaker Annan's Guarany in the net flicks mini series, when they see us a series so full of destroy. Falsehoods is to be an outright fabrication. It shouldn't have been hard for Mr. Verney to discover the truth. The facts of the original case are documented in one hundred seventeen page decision by New York state supreme court Justice Thomas Galligan in sworn testimony, given in two trials and affirmed by two appellate courts, and in sworn depositions more than ninety five witnesses, including the five themselves. Instead, she has written and utterly false narrative involving an evil mastermind me falsely accused the five I was one of the supervisors who oversaw the team that prosecuted, the teenagers apprehended after that horrific night of violence, Mr.

"The applicants can demonstrate good cause and Justice Thomas joined by Justice course, dissented from the court's refusal to hear the case noting that some lower courts, including some nineteenth century state court decisions from Georgia struck down bans on open carry but upheld bans on concealed carry. So tell us about this debate. And whether you think that the California law was rightly upheld or not and how the cabinet court might deal with the question. Well, I think that Clark is absolutely right. That these permissive concealed carry policies that we haven't places like California on our perhaps most likely to be overturned by the supreme court of the gun laws that we have because the court does apparently think that the right to bear arms does extend out into the street. Presumably even extends out into the street extends probably in a more limited way than you would have it in the home any of our rights enjoy with greater scope, and in the context of the home rather than in public because of the public dangers of exercising. Something like a gun rights out on the streets. But I do think that these discretionary policies are likely to run afoul of a majority of the Roberts court in due time. So far, the court has avoided taking one of these cases on the discretionary permanent policies of places like California. But there. No split in the circuits. The lower courts had at least at the circuit level had upheld these discretionary permanent policies consistently subsequent to the supreme court's decision. Not to hear the peruta case raising this issue out of the ninth circuit. We did have a ruling out of the DC circuit that struck down the permissive carry policies. Sorry, the the the discretionary carry policy in Washington DC until we now have a split of the in the circuits about this issue. And so I do think that the next opportunity the court gets it will feel compelled to take a concealed carry case. And I think discretionary permanent is problematic. If the court sees the right as extending outside of the home, and I think the court will thanks for flagging that important issue. Another opportunity for the court to weigh in manse and Whitaker where the fifth circuit upheld a federal law. Predating the hell are. Which prohibits licensed dealers from selling handguns across state lines. The court will soon decide whether to hear that case in some hope that that will provide a a meaningful framework for elevating second amendment rights Clark. Tell us about the Mets and Whitaker case. Do you think the court will take it, and how might the court decided, well, you know, nobody ever got rich betting on the supreme court to to to grant certain in any given case unless it was a case in which the federal government lost. And then it's virtual lock. So I think it's I think it's, you know, just like any other case it's still more likely than not that they'll give it a pass. But a couple aspects of this case, I would say make it at least a potential candidate. And so for a little bit more context on this case involves a federal requirement that is somewhat unusual in the sense that it singles out a particular kind of weapon, namely handgun and treats it significantly different than other types of firearms. And while you can buy a shotgun or rifle across state lines with a handgun, you're not permitted to do. That if you wanted to purchase a handgun from another state you'd have to have the seller in that state, send a handgun to a federally licensed firearms dealer in your state residents who then fill out some transfer paperwork, and you'd have to pay a fee for that really is a pretty significant imposition, particularly for people who maybe aren't as well off..

"Former attorney general Eric Holder reacted on Twitter to the confirmation of judge Brett Cavanaugh to this prem- court by questioning the court's legitimacy and also saying that the court needs to regain the nation's trust. Kerry, Severino is what the judicial confirmation network, and she told Fox News. This is exactly what the Democrats have been trying to do too Cavanaugh all along that's been their strategy all along I think they wanted to delay the controversy to deny him confirmation. If he could delay it if they couldn't and then de-legitimize it think they're they're just. Hoping to find some way to. Push back against what what is. Now, a constitutionalists majority said they're not gonna give them every every decision they want. So they're going to try to undercut legit. Village intimacy at the court big it's ironic when you hear a lot of people complaining that oh, this is gonna diligent as the court. They're doing that by their own rhetoric. They know that this is a fair and legitimate compensation process as fair as it could be under the circumstances. What the Democrats visually, and they were very unfair. But I saw from my own thoughts. I worked for Justice Thomas. She had obviously approving compensation process as well. But he has served twenty seven years now at distinction seventy people recognized him as one of the most principled members of the court. He gets along great with his colleagues. So they're they're wishful thinking that somehow Justice Cavanaugh, we'll have an asterisk I think is just
Senator Chris Coons to question Kavanaugh
"Story the confirmation now in question of President Trump's supreme court pick Senator Chris coons, a democrat from Delaware is a member of the judiciary committee and is set to question judge Brett cavenaugh and his accuser Christine Blasi Ford. This Thursday Senator what do you expect to happen on Thursday? Well, what I hope happens. Judy is that the Senate Judiciary committee will show that we've learned some lessons sense. The hearing with professor Anita hill and Justice Thomas twenty seven years ago, I hope that there will be respectful and open and appropriate questions asked if Dr Ford and of judge cavenaugh, and that we will conduct this not as a trial. But as a job interview where we're trying to get to the truth of the allegations brought forward by Dr for Senator as you know, the Republicans are saying they brought in going to bring in an outside counsel lawyer who who's experienced in prosecuting sex crimes to do the questioning what are Democrats going to do? Judy. I expected all the Senate Democratic judiciary committee members. We'll do our job that we will question a judge cavenaugh, and Dr Ford and try and provide the sort of open and level or fair environment. That will help us get to the truth. I'm concerned by press reports that Republicans are higher. During a prosecutor specialized in prosecuting sex crimes and instead of doing their job in questioning the witnesses will hide behind this prosecutor that also implies that they may be going for a tone that is more prosecutorial, Dr Ford, which I think will simply discourage other victims of sexual abuse from coming forward with their allegations in other contexts,

"He's John rash. From the editorial board of the Star Tribune joining us here on Fridays with what we call. The rash report. John good morning. Good morning gave how are you? Well, just a great. And I'm glad to have you with us. There's so many things going on. I guess the cavenaugh situation is is kind of a fluid situation keeps changing, and it looks like more changes possibly again. Now this morning. Indeed. It does appear that she is willing to testify next week without the prerequisite of an FBI investigation. But her attorney indicated to the Senate Judiciary panel that Monday may not work perhaps a little bit later on the week. And it'll be quite striking regardless of wind. It happens. Now, it appears that I Judge Kevin on may himself come before the committee on Monday. And then there might be a couple day delay before she testifies, but these will probably be widely watched hearings, and those are the certain age will certainly remember how the nation was riveted in. How all the networks. Carry coverage live of need a hill testimony before. The same panel generation or so ago when allegations came up against jets Clarence Clarence Thomas, of course, is now a supreme court Justice. So different dynamics. Of course, in terms of the specific case rate stakes are quite high as they were then interest is quite high as Welby, I think when Anita hill was involved with that. I think the first interview she did or one of the first is right here at W C show when she came up to visit and speak with Fritz Mondale, so never forget. But my question to you, John is how will her testimony be will people be able to hear it? Great question uncertain at this point. Now, of course, you know, a lot of that will be in the negotiations between her attorney and the representatives of the judicial panel with the United States Senate. They have said publicly that they are willing to go out to California to talk to her there to have it as a private meeting or do you have it public from that perspective? Now when we think back to those in need a hill hearings. One of the dynamics there, of course, beyond Justice Thomas, eventually being confirmed by the United States Senate was the anger and the irony of so many people in terms of how they thought that Anita hill was treated by the panel of an all male senators who were questioning her at that point, and certainly many of the people involved. Now remember that and don't want to repeat that dynamic as they go through these types of hearings. But you know, I think that at least a portion of it. I would consider would be likely that it will be public because she's probably especially if just judge cavenaugh goes before the panel earlier going to want to be able to be heard publicly in terms of what she has to say about this issue. Any reaction to what came out of the Wetering files. And was it necessary to have those opened up? John wanna hear your thoughts? You know, I think that it was unpopular with some of the public win news organizations start to being included push to get them released. And I think that yesterday confirmed the value of their release in terms of what exactly did and didn't happen during the investigation, and the fact that it's still so contentious among some in the law enforcement community has we saw during that extraordinary press conference hurt NWC radio as well. You know yesterday reports that shows that it's good to have, you know, the public get a sense of what really did happen and to be able to learn from it. And I think that, you know, always in the journalism business, and in American civic society sunshine, is is the best disinfectant it it it cleans things up. It gets people a sense of what really happened in so doing do you think that there was news value involved in that? And I think as people comb through the thousands of pages that were released hear more about the investigation as well. John your guy. That has watch globally with journalists have to go through. It's not easy in many countries. Is there anybody that's like this country's as journalism? Anybody's similar or is every country got some limitations because you're you do a nice job in highlighting some of the dangers of journalists face in other countries. Well, thank you for that. In generally, western Europe, has press systems that are relatively similar, and I think that the challenge for the United States. And I think the challenge that all Americans to take up is that the United States, according to reporters without borders is ranked in the forties that have, you know, one hundred ninety countries rank in terms of world press freedom, and well ahead of us are generally almost every western European nations. And so, you know, while we have and she'd be a beacon of press freedom around the world, we have slipped some and some of that is reflective of the rhetoric coming from President Trump. We in fact, never pull today on a paper that we get along with NPR in terms of what Minnesotans think of President Trump's. Comments that the press is the enemy of the people in some ways, it's encouraging this -nificant majority of Minnesotans reject that characterization. But in other ways when about twenty nine percent people accept the characterization as twenty nine percentage points too high. And so I think that you know, part of all the way back to the constitution and the founding of this country importance and imperative aspect of the press needs to be protected in needs to be projected around the world. Let me digression go to something quite light. Literally something like, and that is the Cleveland Browns winning last night because Bud Light did something unusual in the marketing world, and they gave out free beer to the people of Cleveland when they would end their winless drought. It happened last night. They got coolers apparently all over town. Very good marketing move by Bud Light and congrats to the Browns, and that's kind of a fun aspect of it. And you know, I think that that shows that you know, marketing and advertising is done in many different ways. Dave, and I think that. Television advertising and radio advertising. Newspapers a big proponent of that. But also just making people happy onsite get people to talk about it. I also know that it's nineteen seventy I think was the first Monday night football telecast, and it was between the Browns and the jets just like last night's game in the Browns beat the jets. And yeah. A little book and their teeth. Jackson was at I play by play guy. Remember on Monday night football and Howard Cosell kind of change things. Absolutely. Not just for Monday night football. But for sports so sports journalism overall. And then finally, it's a so this this this beer thing was so popular. And so alone in Cleveland that Baker Mayfield who came in and won the game for Cleveland and his post game press conference said did they open the Bud Light things? The players get a win to this as well. It's remarkable John never enough time. Appreciate that. Are you writing in tomorrow's paper? Indeed. I'm writing about two documentaries. Both political one more uplifting. The other one that's a little bit more of a dour look at democracy of courses. My Moore's latest Fahrenheit eleven nine nine eleven but eleven nine in that I do November ninth today. But the world knew that Donald Trump had been elected president, and it's a documentary about are political times. And then really compelling one called ready for Ilhan. And it's a documentary about Ilan Homa is poised to potentially win the fifth district congressional race. You're so two good documentaries about politics debut. John. Thank you. And I'm told it, and I have not seen it. I need to that. Mister Rogers documentary is outstanding. Everybody tells you tastic. Yeah. That's that's the Musi. Good family movie for everyone to get a sense of its wealth. Great. Okay. John. I'll look forward to reading in the paper tomorrow morning. Thank you. As always. Thank you from the Royal.

"Well, I think you know the the revocation upon divorce statute that case that that we mentioned, as I think Rianne, said, Justice. Thomas did not see at the same way as Justice score sich and you know, looking at at the same history of the of the contracts clause, there was also another case that I, that I thought was interesting. This term, the oil states decision, which is a patent case in has to do with in administrative review process where private parties can challenge previously issued patents in Justice. Thomas wrote the majority opinion upholding this process against a challenge saying the spy lighted on article three of the constitution and Gorsuch wrote a dissent saying that history requires that the the judiciary, a resolve these types of disputes rather than administrative body. So I think. It will be interesting to see. As he as he gets more time on this under his belt, how he end Thomas will continue to interplay. And, and you know if they'll hold together for many cases or have different approaches to the law. On the constitution count. Ability center is a wonderful organization that takes text and history seriously argues that sometimes leads to liberal rather than conservative results as a liberal originalist. How would you distinguish between Justice courses regionalism and that of the other originalist justices. But I think a lot remains to be seen as it was mentioned. We obviously saw, you know, number of cases this year in which Justice Gorsuch and Justice. Thomas weren't together. Even though we're many, many cases in which they were carpenter. You know, another fourth amendment case, there's another example in which Justice Thomas and Justice course itch while those into sent stakeout very different positions. You know, obviously, you mentioned the constitutional ability censure believe very strongly and the text in history and values of the constitution and the entire constitution. So both the original text and the amendments that have reshaped, redefined it over the course of our country's history. You know, we think that just as Gorsuch you know this year often reach results that were at odds with that text history, values of the entire constitution, but we will, you know, look forward to the years ahead and continuing to see how he defines himself on the court. Sets. Thanks for that Elizabeth. Any final thoughts on Justice Gorsuch have we missed any cases and what do you want our listeners to know about the differences among originalist and the degree to which originalism can can predict justices approach in particular cases. Yeah, I think we've hit all of the high points of Justice. Gorsuch is I first year on on the bench. You know, I think on the supreme court bench. I think one thing I would point out is that you know it didn't take him any time to to warm up to the role. And I think part of that is a reflection of the fact that he had spent a decade on on the tenth circuit as an appeals court judge. So he he already had developed his judicial philosophy and he was ready to go. And as we turn towards our discussion of of judge Brad Cavanaugh, I think similarly, will you know he's another judge who has a, you know, a pretty clear picture of what it means to be a judge and a attend twelve years of experience on the bench. Elizabeth final thoughts about Justice course and his first term. Sort sort of. Well, ask it again. Thanks so much for that. Brian. Final thoughts about just scores his term. Well, we know that doesn't Gorsuch is not shy and has strongly held views. He's willing to a spouse. I think it'll be really interesting going forward. Obviously, there's about to be, you know, potentially a real shift on the court with the vacancy created by Justice, Kennedy's retirement. And so it'll be really interesting to see how the court looks and what role Justice Gorsuch plays on the new post kind of court in the years to come. Indeed. And that leads us to the second of are extremely important topics today, and that is the judicial philosophy of judge. Brett cavenaugh when President Trump nominated him, Judge Kevin declared my judicial philosophy, straightforward, a judge must interpret statutes ridden and a judge must interpret the constitution as written informed by history and tradition and precedent. It's striking that Judge Kevin did not call himself in originalist and his opinions on the appellate court suggest less use of originalist analysis than Justice, Thomas or Justice Gorsuch.

"Going to interpret the constitution without a political filter as did scoglio as does justice thomas as does neil gorsuch this is what they cannot understand in truth they should be wildly grateful for the fact that kavanagh's politics are not going to be a factor here but they can't imagine anyone doing that since they never would they would never put their politics aside in fact when it comes to politics the left has litmus tests and if they're nominees do not pass these litmus test there's no way they're going to get any court appointment u s district court judge appellate court judge supreme court justice not going to happen unless they check off the right political boxes i'm dead serious they've got nothing to fear from brett kavanagh's politics because that's not what he does cavanaugh is a strict they called the word is construction its meaning he believes in the original intent and the way the constitution was constructed and written all the talk about his politics especially this guy this is what makes him a great judge all the talk about his politics is moot in all of the left's objections are going to be with the constitution previous rulings black letter of the law not with his politics which will not even enter into it that's what they should go into and if they looked at his jurisprudence there's no way to disqualify the guy if you look at this man as a judge of the law purely as a judge of the law a man able to see the law rather than others no reason to disqualify the left is not going to look at it that way the left is going to attempt to destroy him on the basis of his politics which you're not even a factor here but they utilize projection so since they have politicized everything they assume we do too but we have not corrupted the courts well you know i can't say we haven't i mean lifetime of history we've had some bad actors no question but as a matter of principle we're not about corrupting the courts the left is about corrupting pretty much everything they can that has to do with the constitution which is why i made the point of telling vice president pence little less than an hour ago that the left is really not protesting or upset with cavanaugh they're upset with the constitution here their beef is with the constitution cavanaugh as a strict interpreter of it poses a great threat to them because liberalism requires the constitution be bendable shape able flake able to accommodate whatever policy positions they have of the moment now the left is also scared to death of the next potential nomination and let's just say this they're scared to death of the future of ruth buzzy ginsburg justice ginsburg has been in poor health justice ginsburg is over eighty and you don't need my word to tell you to convince you that they're scared to death you know they all realize let's talk about obama and hillary how brilliant they are really this is how bright they are this is how strategically bright and formidable they are if they had known what they were doing they would have cajoled ruth ghazi bins berg into retiring while obama was president so that he could name her appointment and have that seat guaranteed for the democrats in the next forty years what they calculated that there was no way hillary could lose it didn't even occur to them donald trump would win it never occurred to them that a republican might have a chance to appoint the next couple of justices or three they assumed that that would be their exclusive right and so they didn't make any suggestion ruth buzzy ginsburg that should retire now where are they now a situation in all of their brilliance in all of their strategic tactician brilliance they never conceived of this so i do think we need to redefine smart because these people ain't it they are said to be the best and brightest and so smart we can't even keep up with them but it's the other way around there so arrogant and self focused that that they have no room for intelligence and certainly not any intellectual growth because they already know everything so now the left realizes this gigantic tactical error and i have a story this is just this made me laugh and there is a a swirling controversy over this the story is in politico now let me let me just make sure political magazine and here's the.

"With client conservative win streak after supreme court we had the the fake cake baker case which was a win for religious liberty expression of course and now we have the upholding of the president's terrorist travel ban and that of course five four decision other five four ruling yesterday struck down a california law mandating that pro life pregnancy centers advertise where clients may get an abortion again the this is i think in the majority opinion justice thomas wrote the state law code unduly burdens protected speech justice kennedy said the government can't compel citizens to promote a message they do not agree with was in california but it has local ramifications because the center for pregnancy concerns carol clues who is joined us every year to talk about a big golf tournament for the cpc's going to join us next month as well the baltimore had a similar ruling and the fourth circuit earlier this year ruled three dozen that the centers right to religious freedom had been violated well they didn't necessarily address that particular case but certainly it's going to have ramifications and consequences on that one as well in the travel ban decision that was made by the supreme court we talked about this off the air during the break justice thomas made what i would call on a dent into the decision and he spoke loud and clear as to what's going on in this country and he was basically very very critical of the fact that you can go judge shopping here in this country and have one district federal district court judge make a ruling like say when the travel ban saying it's unconstitutional and until the supreme court gets a hold of it that ruling applies to the entire country we talked about this and it shouldn't be that way and has got to be rectified because you can just as long as you have looted nutty ninth circuit court of appeals and other district courts out there on the west coast ruling and a very far left fashion we're going to have these problems we had that judge in hawaii and initially ruled against the travel ban and that god it's a found his way to the he had this timothy was wrong wong here in greenbelt that eventually made its way to the maryland to the fourth circuit and obviously no supreme corporate right about that and i think what this was this was justice thomas sending a warning shot to congress get your act together you need judicial reform we're talking about this with dan horowitz later on this morning let's get some phone calls want to talk about the primary and other important topics and he's on a cell phone and a good morning good morning hey guys doing we're fine sir thank you maybe the third or fourth time ecology the call this morning i think that the it looks like the radicalization of the democrat party by the extreme left is finally come to maryland full circle now now i agree i mean you know not only is ben jealous carpetbagger and in my opinion completely unqualified but if god forbid he gets elected he's gonna make martin o'malley look like a conservative so amen amen to that now hold on a second i wanna see if you agree with my take on this what we saw yesterday was the traditional maryland establishment especially on the democrats front losing out to a candidate who may very well unite the the unions the bernie sanders type of democrats no way to the left and african americans so i said earlier that i candidate for governor in this state could win prince george's county montgomery county and baltimore city and go on to victory all they have to do is win those three subdivisions well if if ben jealous is is going to be able to lay claim to prince george's saudi in baltimore city and and pockets of montgomery county and baltimore county then governor hogan may have a more difficult time than we thought and if that's the case it would not surprise me if you see from here on out governor hogan shifting a little bit more to the right and maybe even embracing president donald trump would you agree with that i i probably think he's going to continue to move the center i mean some of the things he's done i why would you move to the center when you you got this extreme leftists because you if you're if you're in the center you you appear to be the one with.
