We don't rehearse any of this. I don't tell you what I'm going to ask you. This is the question. I don't think I've ever asked you. And I think it's the most important one. Nobody is doing what you're doing. I mean, you know, Jesse ward is what his world is fun. It's amusing, but your videos are shocking. Why are you doing what you're doing? What's the genesis of it or we share that story? Yeah, sure. You know, so my background was as an investment banker. That's what I did for most of my career. And one day the Saturday night and I was watching the Michael Moore film going for Columbine. And I started drifting off thinking about the United Nations and how horrific they are and damaging they are. And why isn't anybody up in arms about it? And I looked over at the screen at the Michael Moore documentary. I thought, what did engaging interesting. Way to convey an idea, this idea of a smart, dark documentary. Now, he may be totally wrong, he's a big fat pig. But hey, you know what? Still, it's a really interesting way of conveying a perspective. So I thought, you know what? I'm going to do that. I literally quit my job. I was sorry, I quit my job on Monday. Start raising money, made a movie called you and me, which was thank God successful enough where a kind of open live doors for me. I decided I didn't want to do any more. I didn't want to spend another 7 years on one topic and spend millions of dollars on it. So I said, you know, this social media was really taken off that point. And you can kind of create your own platform. And that's what I did. I just started doing these one off videos. And they just kind of became super successful and they kind of blew up to the point where now we're across all platforms are probably four and a half million views per video. As soon as the show, right? Then you're going to have your own show called triggered. Yeah, yeah. We are in the process of that as well. Really excited about them. I'm sure.

Jon Gruden Resigns as Raiders Coach Over Decade-Old Offensive Emails
"John Gruden has always been kind of a wild child in the NFL always been a little bit of a loose cannon, if you will. And I believe he was also he was also the coach of the Oakland Raiders in like the 90s. And then he went to the Buccaneers and led them to the Super Bowl very complicated. But then he rejoined the Raiders in 2018 after he was an analyst on Monday Night Football. Do you remember those things he used to sit down with the quarterbacks? And it was like Gruden's corner. I've never been a big fan of Jon Gruden. I'll be very honest. One in 2002, that's right, my memory's not too bad. I'm not going to be an apologist for Jon Gruden. Okay? I'm sure he lives a complicated life like most people in the NFL. But this recent saga involving in his resignation slash termination is disgusting. And the national Football Association is in many different ways. In enterprise that is built on a House of Cards. The entire structure of how many of the teams are filed as nonprofits on how almost every stadium is built thanks to taxpayer dollars. There's a lot of corruption that exists in the national football, the National Football League. And so it came out a couple days ago that John Gruden is going to be fired, or it has to speak out for his racist and homophobic emails over ten years ago. And I shrugged my shoulders and I actually didn't know where this one was going to go. Because John Gruden signed a ten year 100 million dollar deal with the Oakland Raiders. And now so he technically resigned whatever he says, I have resigned as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. I love the Raiders and do not want to be distraction. Thank you to all the players coaches and staff and fan fans of raider nation. I'm sorry I never meant to hurt anyone, John Gruden. And so it was revealed in some of these emails. And based from what I've said, seen should have said something's probably not no, was he joking around in private in a context that none of us can understand? Yes. He incited Joe Biden, insulted Joe Biden I can't even say what he called Joe Biden on air. It's kind of hilarious. Called Roger Goodell, a certain name. I'm no fan of Roger Goodell. So if this whole thing is like a Roger Goodell, apology tour, but here's what really matters. Here's the question. In the National Football League, do they ever allow people to do bad things and continue to participate? Like murder. How about rate Ray Lewis and his legacy of the unsolved double murder? Or how about you remember this one? You remember ray rice, who literally punched his fiance in an elevator? It was an elevator, right? Which gained total notoriety following the indictment he was released by the ravens and suspended, and now rice would be reinstated after he successfully appealed the league's decision. And this whole thing with John Gruden is this question of should you be judged by things you have said in private ten years ago to destroy your current

Is there some a gay relationship the town didn't like him and he was found out when the mayor was turned out to be gay. He was demoted. Yes. He poisoned the water to make people angry so that he could sell them as liquor which makes them happier and he invented this character to walk around town and bullying people who bullied him for being gays that it might get in all this right. I honestly detective Riley. I think you nailed it with that summer. I feel like not only of the people of this town learned a valuable lesson about acceptance and tolerance but I feel like I've learned a lesson about intolerance. And by the way as my first edict wage other than tearing down the wall we're going to do Shakespeare in the park every Saturday and we're gonna have only qualified women do rules that God would you play but the rest of the roles are going to go merit-based if a man is the best person to play a woman than a man's going to get the part if a woman is the best person to play a Man Loves a Woman is going to get the part if a child should play a dog if a dog should play a man.

He's he's right the talents a bunch of bigots. They don't know whether love that song man has for the stage and other men don't you guys think that maybe if you would just focus on this amazing love between the former mayor?

He presses the two together in our blood brothers oath. See we all bleed the same way. Sorry detective Riley to illustrate that point so gross. Well, we're Blood Brothers. Now, you're goddamn, right?

We didn't have any problems frankly you guys until well until the Matrix came out and once the majors came out you guys were all fighting over the 1,000 HD DVD copy that we had in the general store and I feel like maybe it wasn't the water that's been affecting us this whole time. Maybe it's just been Resentment and intolerance and hate the townspeople Grumble at each other. Well son, that's a nice Theory but this town owes me off and that's why I've been pumping them full of liquor the Commissioners booze and I've made a tidy profit and good for me.

All right, another name it after the tone found out. I was demoted to water commissioner, you know humiliating that is for a former mayor former Sheriff he's wrong. There was never the same after that. All right. So the Matrix had something to do with it. Sure, but also I poured my bits of hate for this town into the water supply.

I was treated detector Potter looks at the bottle that led the bureau boys to this dispatch still every text Riley the name of this moonshine is hate juice detective Riley.

"Even Beyond detecting Riley. What did you do to him have stolen his memories what happened your memories my thoughts in his head. I remember being raised by wolves and then my mom taught me some sort of martial arts or something and then I started studying the Stars wage. That's about right and hm I was seventeen years ago when the walls came when everyone was shouting screaming and when we had to defend for ourselves, it was them that we formed the Council of the weekend the weekend Warriors detective Riley. I think you've got onto something. Don't say I correct the case because I definitely haven't yet. No, no, no. No, we're well on the way though. Hey Theodore, you know, if you want me to show you how to make this that alcohol that I talked about before if you could run into the forest or or the the field whereas the corn for corn flakes is what they call them right at the corn Forest over there. We when we came in here knocked down a lot of ears of corn if you could gather up. I don't know two hundred to a thousand years of corns. I'd be happy to show you how to make that alcohol. Yes. Hi. I think I'd like that actually so Theodore scampers off into the corn leaving the gate wide open for the bureau boys to approach the second. Probably we're in we're in, New Jersey. Close listen, it seems that there are some there are some formation of some gangs hear things got a little out of control and everyone changed their names after after the wall came up with now did you say that there was another cult involved a weekend warrior called it was some kind of some kind of counsel. I came I I think they might be the ones in charge. Okay, no Colts here. Okay, not that we know of yet. Okay. All right. The Barrow boy is look around the small town of only owe 750 years old people. They see a general store. They say a record store. They see a copy of the Matrix for this town has been frozen seven fifteen years, and I've passed from 3 years ago. Wait what three years ago and from Seventeen years prior to that the town has been frozen, you know because of the Matrix reference. Wow, you could still have a matrix DVD and a store window three years after the Matrix came out and technically I would say it's four years after the Matrix came out if we're going to start to split hairs narrator, but it was it was that reloaded or revolutions. That's my question. I don't know I gave up after the first one. All right fair enough Seventeen years ago. The Matrix was left there and that store window. I'm just saying this town is Frozen in Time Seventeen years ago with some old-timey references thrown in that like a general star. There's a barrel outside with a bunch of apples in it and a little street urchin pushing a hoop down the street with a stick and they're dead. Pain in the road is is another stick and a ball. No one's playing stickball anymore. There's active Riley. This is like a almost like a ghost town here. Yeah, like an old Wild Wild West slash 1930s New York slash two thousand three, Iowa Ghost Town. Yes detective you think that ghosts in this town. Yeah. I know. I got a very strong feeling that there's ghosts there's goes underneath us. There's goes to the left and right might even be goes above. I'm not sure if they can float that high attack type of pot are pulls out an EKG meter which appears to be made of an old Zune MP3 player. He pointed at various objects detective Rell am not getting any thoughts on this thing. I don't think there's any paranormal activity in this town at all. Well, we're out in the open we're going to have to wait till we're in some kind of bar room or back room or billiard-room. You mean like that Old Tavern. Decapod our gestures toward an Old Tavern with batwing doors. Now, we gotta be careful. These locals don't know us and as we know they're very irritable as we saw from Theodore. I'm sure we gotta tread lightly the boys enter the tavern or something or bar as they as they enter there. They see Jeffrey old fellows bellied up to the bar chatting up the old wench serving them fire water and the corner there's a piano player not playing the piano plays on its own and just a bit clearer the winch seems like a delightful woman. We're just using by wench and the colloquial term. Yeah, the piano music stops as everyone turns to face the bureau boys howdy who? The hell are you guys, who are you? We haven't had any any visitors to this Saloon slash and slash. But since I don't know hey, hey Frank, when's the last time we had a visitor? There wasn't one of us my stubborn. I am eighteen years ago the Barrow boys. Look at Frank. He appears to have a peg leg and an eye patch over his eye. I it's been many moons home since a coupler strange city Folk stumbled into this bar room. Yeah Frank, I'd say it's been since since you've been Shipwrecked in a little town. I it was then that I crashed into this land love and corn growing slop schmuck and shut off. Iven, okay. Okay, Frankie don't need to get all your edible about it. We're all on edge here. We actually wanted to talk to you guys about that. Everyone seems to be so on edge in downtown and we know that well, there must have been some type of event that precipitated this I'm sure none of you are happy happy. I haven't been happy since I was on the high seas sailing with my room mate and me white. I haven't been happy since the Great Depression. I saw dust at the time and everyone needed dust death of a young salesman. Okay. Well were the bureau boys. I know. I'm sorry. What are you detective try? I'm down in sidebar with you right now.

I'm trying to drive. Can you I'm trying to drive that's very distracting. You know, the corn is whipping by and both sides of the car. It's very distracting when you whistle when I yeah, I know I was going to ask why are we driving through the cornfield? There was a road back there that we could have been on but this the the corn is just whipping past. I can't even keep these windows. Oh, well the GPS said turn right and so I turned right detective Riley. And if you see straight out of us, you can see the Dome shape of the city village town. Yeah, the Dome Rising above the corn stalks. I can just barely make out. I'm glad we're that's a good Landmark. I suppose we're headed in the right direction. That's just not being in the corn just takes me back to the old days. Whistling Dixie and it got a little carried away but you know what, you know, what detective Potter what I'm not going to apologize for whistling. That's my God, right? Okay fine and you know that fine and you know that we have a case to take care of detective Riley. Yes, it's the case of the Mondays. Yes informant Brokers sent this in to us off ages ago when we're finally getting around to it cuz we've I mean we've had our hands full detective Riley. I'm stressed the hell out. Okay. Hey your veins are bulging keep your eyes on the road, There is no Road gave her eyes a fixed on the corn. All right, we gotta keep in the state. If we don't if we Veer off into another row of corn. Jeez, we might end up on the wrong Farms. You know what I mean? I sort of get it. Okay, detective I owe you know that the people here have been been basically held captive because every every after every weekend the people in this town, if you remember to really get super irritable and super angry with each other there's been incidents of of mild violence. There's been people quitting jobs people firing people wage. No dogs getting spanked on their little dog butts. Yes. Yes and to make matters worse. It seems there's a complete shortage of coffee. No one can get their their caffeine fix. So that's just exacerbate exacerbate at the problems. Yes and specifically because this city has been walled off. This town's been walled off all the other towns around this town because they didn't want these ears kind of jerks coming into their towns. They wall them off. So these these people from our understanding are trapped in their own town by the surrounding towns. I'm not really sure who's the bad guy? Here is that the irritable ones trapped inside this walled City or is it the or is it the surrounding people who Wold them in is it the creators of find coffee around the the Columbia whoever refused to deliver coffee? I think I think because they were being harassed at the gates. I mean how would they even be able to get it in other than through the gates detective who was even in charge of the gates speaking of gates by Bureau boys have rolled up to what a large Iron Gate beneath this large domed city. Okay. It looks like there's this far as this old dusty Studebaker. It's going to take us a tiny little hatch slides opening in the giant iron door and a little box and poked his head out and you do down there. Hey, hey detective Potter. There's a there man speaking to us. Hey, yeah up here up here. Just have to really quit looking at the door where it's cracked up to be what is wrong with you? Yeah. Just trying to get an understanding. I know just the anatomy of this tiny human like figure is no it's not mad. I am what's the password? Did you I didn't see it protected but I didn't see a password in the case File. There was no password Frank like why do we run into so many places that need password not get into I don't understand these Gatekeepers these days think there are a bunch of trolls. They are trolls. That's the problem with Gatekeepers these days. They just actually where you calling a troll. All right little guy the the package it is how do you know a little just because I'm sticking my head out here and this high-pitched voice doesn't mean that I'm a little man. I'm six-foot-four prove it. Okay, so the little dog And head disappears from behind the hinge he slides the hinge shot and the huge iron door starts to Creak open the second while I can't believe that worked that wage. Really. Yeah. I know we're going to get in so easily what an idiot that little man emerges from behind the door, but the bureau boys are surprised to see that he is not a little man. He is in a approximately 6.4 according to the thing, you know, like they have it a 711 where you can measure a crook when it runs out the door. They have that those markings and back doors. It can be like, oh he was about five eleven. Well this one he stands next to his exactly six foot fall. I didn't expect you to Thursday actually be the correct size.

"Around. You need to get your designated amount of iron or steel. So people would be tossing in their pots and pans. There there anything in their house that they could because there weren't mines in all these places. Yeah they were just expected to go out to the soil and know how to extract iron. They weren't even an necessarily educate them how to do that. Plus that would take so much work to get such small amount that most of the pig iron that was produced during this time period in China was completely worthless so but they had a ton of it makes medals. It was garbage. A were tempered metals that they just melted together. Yeah just a bunch of Shit. That's garbage Oh my God and then they did open up a bunch of minds which killed more people. Because I can't mind on an empty stomach you know Oh God. It's a great time to be alive here. In China you're nineteen fifties too early sixties China. So then then I kinda went into. I want to talk about the illusion of superabundance. Nowadays in capitalist societies we have the the allusion of scarcity like diamonds are are believed to be the super rare material. But there's tons of have showtime have so many cheapen affordable a lot of it is the whole idea of supply and demand if if diamonds weren't so rare than they would all just be a dollar each no they're just a hot ticket item and they have a ton of 'em trickle amount. Yes trickle amount so that your dumb ass goes and buys on no-fence oh I didn't buy one. Oh you didn't know I would. I like to imagine that you got a blood diamond. I'm sure I did my parents. Okay and what the so I'm sure. Oh yeah that's right. I forgot I forgot about that. Yeah so yeah. They had the the illusion. Well mouth specifically had the illusion of superabundance. They believed that they were producing a huge amount. And as everybody you know lied them are light to them to make. It seem like that so then I would say let's sell off a bunch of this rain. Oh God no you say you have this much ship it all to us and then there. Oh Shit we only have half that much luck. Follow Star killing really though and it was a huge issue but it was also kind of A. There's kind of a catch twenty two with it because at the same time Mao also was known to have known about some of the cannibalism. That we're going to start talking about here soon. Ooh I like it. Yeah Monday munchies. Au- They so i. It seems like he acted as if like put on the the play. You know to the rest of the world saying Oh we have tons of superabundance and we can produce all this knowing that he's killing off a bunch of peasants who he didn't want the Chinese Communist Party anyway so I I actually have a quote when there is not enough to eat. People Starve to death. It is better to let half of the people die so that the other half can eat their fill and this is pertaining to taking all of the grain and distributing it not on geography or need but a mouse own choices of who gets to eat list pretty much so they. They had horrible distribution networks. They weren't laid out very well at all. A lot of them would break down. But a lot of the starvation could in theory have been negated if they were able to distribute it. They there's also a win was hitting hard. They are towards the beginning. The Chinese Communist Party put out a statement. Saying if you're a worker in a farm you have two meals a day. One of them. Soft and liquid water water with with dirt in a little bit of rain a little bit of flour on with dysentery in it uncooked flour. Yes uncooked flour. So the distribution was based on cultural ethnic and political details. So if you were a high ranking Communist Party member you get the good grain whole is if you were a peasant farmer. You would get no grain if you were living in big cities with because they wanted to industrialize. You'd get some grain if you were three grain. Anything other than pure bred Chinese you would get no grain murdered lynched horrible lay and distributed even if you WanNa go the the completely impossible just equally distribution a lot. Less people would have starved. Almost none of the people who starved and especially if they didn't sell off tons and tons and tons of it you know they were they wouldn't they would have had they actually would have had a bit of an excess. She's compared to sell at all so obviously tons of widespread horrible Cannibalism is actually known as the era of cannibalism the great era sorry rates era of cannibalism. God the So Mao it's suspected Mau knew about the cannibalism because he specifically tried to cover it up. I was GonNa say if he did like he would have either one ignore it or to cover it up. Yeah a lot of the documentation that does exist about. It would is locked in an archive and it won't come out unless the CC falls like Soviet Union falls like the Soviet Union but some of it did get out. Some people were able to get a lot of that information out. A lot of this information I get from Puts a link. It's on a an interview from somebody who was in one of the commune's Jesus and he was. He was he or she. I'm not sure we're talking about it. The documentation when there was a investigation into an unlawful unlawful death. And it was known as a special case you basically knew it was cannibalism. They were considered special cases at this time period. But you just like starvation you can put cannibalism on their natural causes. Yes exactly. It's natural to starve to death and let somebody else eat you. Naturally we ate him so there. There's a couple a couple of reports on this In this interview but I only had one really quick one that I wanted to share specifically and it was a starving man whose wife passed away. He buried her. Oh two days later. Ater Oh God. There was a bearing her. He was just helping her cook. Yeah WHY CAESAR YOU PICK? Yeah you just put a bunch of hot coals in there. He just didn't tell anybody about it. Perfect pulled pork. Long pig pulled long pig. Answer name to compete. Oh No that's gonNA come back and that's GonNa come back to me. That's fine fuck it and other. I'm not gonNA survive another two we. Yeah exactly we're going to die anyway. So whatever so Sumi so zoom another interesting thing. This person mentioned was they denied engage in cannibalism. I would to whether or not I did pussy. So I'm not saying you know at this point six years later with a wife and kids you know your grandmother. Oh we hung out with your grandma a lot. She was delicious. She delight who was delayed. There were actually people indies camps in these communists who were given extra grain under the like under the radar to harvest parts of the bodies. Oh I thought you were gonNA say Fatima panels like that so they they would drive trucks and part of what they would do is transplant. Some of the bodies out but they would basically just make a stop somewhere and these people were so thin they were full. Earn a date adults who are eighty pounds? This was concentration camp level skinny. You can't there's nothing to there so they were actually paid grain to crack open their sternum and take out the heart the lungs and liver and ditch the GI tract. And then give that meet to. It's it's not entirely document where that food was going. But it suspected went to the Commun- members it went to the leaders. Anybody who had the power but also starving not enough power to get out of there. Yeah would pay these people to hearst that organs cheese deceased people so this guy specifically mentions that he met one of these people and saw some of the corpses of the skin was flayed off the chest. It was just open and the organs missing with Lord would make A. Here's my question. I don't know much about like how health parts of the human body to eat but wouldn't like cooking skin. Be An option. No no that's just like imagine have you? Have you ever cooked with pork belly with skin? Still on yeah where. It's really I mean I was off. Yeah IT'S COOKING FOOTBALL. That's fair and eating that like there's there's not really a lot of nutrients at this point if you're kind of fatty than you can cook the fat in the. Skin and God better. That's me and now I'm looking at your shirt which you were on an episode. A couple of weeks ago. That says I'm into fitness fitness TACO. In my mouth year baby on me you looked like a TACO got bill cannibalism people circumcised. Taco over here to better than a sausage casing. Yeah genital mutilation taken on that controversy. That's the pressure point for today. I like that. It's called that and we never do anything like that. You just mentioned eating skin. Oh yeah that's I guess that's a pressure point in today's society don't on second about circumcision. Oh Scott with with your teeth fry pride up. Not You just use your teeth. That's how they used to circumcise him. Have you seen those videos? No good I. Don't want videos of rabbis biting forest. I've heard about but I haven't watched all right. Let's get to so this isn't going to Google is not GonNa let this one post run into it again. And now where am I alright? So read the interview with a link and another interesting thing is. Apparently they're cookbooks. That exists from this era on how to cook. Did they have my My Finger Salad Is your salad swamp wives all thought it was? I knew the I knew you would fact check me and did you find that all original content. Now that's definitely original content. You did you get to read any of the recipes. Please tight human bone. I wasn't able to find the books under a very quick. I was also at work when I was writing notes so I can look into it a lot so previous. Aj why are you reading about harvesting human organ? It was already bad because I kept asking people how to spell cannibalism because they just I didn't realize until like an hour later why they were giving me weird looks next time to do justice to the New People. Oh definitely just ask new piece like hey how despu cannibalism. And then just like. Hey have you ever heard of like a Chinese cookbook? That might or might not involve recipes not elving humans. Nah Nah I'll say thank you so much for your help your delicious delightful and.

"Sort of one sided, and that's something in this environment. That courts d to be careful that I was just going to say that it seemed at least two sample SHA. Game seemed to be the difference between the two constitutional provision. One of them is. It's nature. Not. Specific in a way that is going to appear in the Alagic on the other one is just a right or not a right about guns. So we have a right about setting off spaghetti that. There is right about goods the risen to write about guns. And whatever it is. It's about goods, it's not about the world large. Certainly. Right. So I think again as Patrice sometimes can be unavoidable in the constitution is not neutral and all questions. But I think the second amendment there's not much to do. But it might be a reason to for the court to to be particularly careful about how it crafts structure to tackle about changing, the, you know, reaching this decision that hadn't been reached in YouTube years, you know, by looking at like, it's a way that judges can sort of test their inclinations by saying like, do I really wanna do this? You know, what is the fact this is going to have the world it's really going to benefit people on on my side. Maybe I should be a little bit more hesitant. I. Yeah. I think that's right. I think they certainly should be cognizant of the environment that they're operated, and again, you know, I'm envisioning this as a kind of ethic, I'm sort of I think of it kind of like th area in judicial restraint. Right. The idea of judicial restraint is you should only override democratic choices. If the constitution is clear, but right, whether it's clear might have given case might depend on your primary. Operative commitments right by the same token at something judges with different primary commitments might equally cooperate. And I think this is that has the same kind of character. Right. You could be originalist or living constitutionalist that might mean that certain questions come out one way or another as matter first principles, and you can't reach symmetry. But by the same token at something judges all different sorts of outlooks could could incorporate you know, I know you don't wanna personalized this to me, maybe another differences Justice Scalia versus chief Justice Roberts. I don't know how you feel about that. But it's how you write the opinion. I think you're talking about to some degree, and how you reason the opinion constitutionally and not so much what resulted you reach and one method is more divisive. If you will than the other that that's true. I do think Roberts has this kind of inclination and in some cases. NFL be might be an example where he tries to kind of. Balance. Upholding the law but also for Care Act, but also reaching the commerce clause question as a kind of conservative result. Also, reaching the the. Medicaid expansion. Another good. I mean, the essay as you mentioned talks about the masterpiece cake shop case, which I think is a good example of where sometimes it's might help with the sort of choice of rationale. So, you know, masterpiece kicked off, of course, the case with the Christian Baker who. Refuses on religious grounds to make a custom cake for a same sex marriage and get sanctioned by state authorities from court holds that the penalty violent is free exercise rights, and I think in that case the court had a choice between kind of free exercise rationale and a free speech rationale, and whatever one thinks matter of first principles zero turn weather arguments to consider, but I think one advantage of the free speech rationale would have been precisely that it invokes this principle of symmetry. Right. You could if the court recognizes. Liberty of expressive freedom not to engage in expressive commercial services that that convey messages, the person strongly disagrees with I mean, that's the principle that in this case is is protecting kind of conservative result. But across the universe of cases might be more balanced overall. And so for that reason might be west west visit particularly the court highlights that Zach is this is this like a new version, you know, is this neutral principles for the twenty th century. Basically, this is an idea that's been floating around. Yeah. No, it certainly closely related with the neutral principles. I g I guess Herbert Wechsler listeners weren't familiar and then picked up again by Bork. And so it's an idea that is controversial, right? Because Wexler uses it to criticize Brown for support of education. But it's still an idea that the idea that there should be neutral principles, resolving constitutional cases. I think still has purchase. Even if that

"Right. And maybe there's are bigger cases. Some of them are big cases. And some of them are very big cases. Some of them are smaller. But what to me? What's interesting is? I think when he is you know, you sort of wonder with the Justice they got the assignment after they voted. So they've formed their views at least preliminarily before they get assigned the opinion. But his opinions turn out to be remarkably on the on the side of the defendant. Maybe not in a big way he is a moderate. So he's often splitting the baby between two extreme positions. But he'll he'll be with people who you might call the liberal side of the bench more often than he is with the conservative side the badge when he's dissenting actually his defense. I think tend to run in far more conservative direction when he's descending dissenting from what? What I would call a pro defendant or liberal view. Some people say there was an essay when he retired. He's he never left the Republican party. I think that's true of other Republican party might be different today than it was when he was first appointed. I'm not sure that's about criminal cases. I think it's more bad business cases and economic cases than it is about criminal cases. So far. I haven't found anybody who writes about his criminal decisions when they're a couple of books about Justice Kennedy, and they have to do with his vision of liberty or dignity, but they they all talk about first amendment or abortion or or same sex cases. Nobody even mentions criminal cases, unless they happen to leak into Lawrence versus Texas a criminal case. But it's not it's not a value added for its criminal law content. When he never got on board with Booker and Blakely and he's. He's anti formalist where he really doesn't. He doesn't like the sort of, hyper formalist, Caprio revolution cases. You know? He also, you know, I might put a finer point in it. I sort of look at his very similar to what you're saying. But like for such a libertarian Justice where is the liberty in some of these criminal cases, and certainly in the fourth mimic aces. That's on my line because I'm teaching criminal investigations for the first time the semester, but he I just don't see the concern for the threat posed by the state in in those, you know, sometimes he you know, his fourth amendment moderate. I'm not saying he's an extreme in one direction on fourth cases. But he just seems less concerned about it. Have less fourth amendment chemicals than even Justice clean. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Don't even his his his concern with liberty and dignity is not he doesn't write these products bands of opinions on the criminal side talks about this just for the dignity because he's got the mimic mimics in the area the death penalty or the eighth amendment life without parole kisses that's an area where it's very interesting because he is obviously very concerned and quite expansive in his treatment of those cases. But the other distinction that I would make is when he's doing habeas cases his much less likely to rule in favor of defendant than than when he's not. And he actually a case called Weaver from just a couple of terms ago. He actually says very clearly says there's a really difficult balance when we're talking about rights of the individual versus finality and in the habeas context. I think finality Trump's with him most. Of the time. It's interesting. I think think of some cases where he sort of willing to let people get by things like procedural default because he again, he's he's he such an anti formalist. He's sort of wants to get at the substance. That's what I think, you know, you, you know, the the cases he cares about substantive cases, like Lawrence take certain things off the table as a matter of subsequent law take certain punishments off the table as a matter of the amendment things like that. And so sometimes he's willing to say, look, let's let's let this person on death row. Make this argument, even if it's technically procedurally defaulted, but that's I hadn't looked at this whole run of AB cases. That's really interesting. And and you know, you Zach you mention Blakely, and and that I happen to believe he was right in those cases. And it's always surprised me because they're of course, is no spoken like a good federal former federal prosecutor over federal. But also, there's no textual in the majority view on that the idea that the text somehow requires that. Sentencing factors be proven beyond reasonable doubt, is is a very different view. And so I actually think Justice Kennedy. It wasn't so much matter formalism versus non formalism. I think he was offended by the lack of textual support and the real actual, I I would say lack of historical support Justice Scalia would disagree. How do you apprentice, you know, he was always with the majority in printing? But then he gets off the train very shortly thereafter in the subsequent cases. He's a dissenter and most of the subsequent pretty cases. And he's end up the Booker Meteo majority. His with O'Connor in all. I remember chess O'Connor coming to a ninth circuit conference the year that print he was just ciders and saying, you know, nobody's going to even have heard of this case, and it's gonna be it's gonna be the most important and most disruptive they decided this pasture and talking about a print and how much disagreed with it. But also, what are you judge impact was him? She was Royd probably probably the most consequential criminal decision of the last in terms of disrupted the sensing law dates and the whole federal system. Yeah. You know? I mean, well the federal system though was. Debate where? I bet. Surprise dryer had Justice Ginsburg who silently switch sides halfway through the case. No. So did you come away from this evaluation with any kind of normative spin? Or is it just sort of? You're just trying to sort of figure out, you know. How would you characterize him as a crime pro Justice? Yeah. Normative I'm not sure I'm not sure what that actually means. I think Justice Kennedy had strong normative affinity actually with law enforcement and the need for order, which which outweighed sometimes at least this individual liberty idea. Where that same idea of individual liberty could overwhelm other interests in a number of context.

"Com slash first. Mondays okay. Then a couple pending petitions you flagged one you wanted to talk about Steve tell us about that. Yeah. So this is a universal Reseau. It is a case I've been following for a little while, and I should say I've been, you know, everything I say about it is purely in my individual capacity, it deals with an issue that is relevant to the pelt rules on when can aid and you are on that committee, right? Yeah. For sure, but just for listeners hornet familiar, your member of the advisory committee that helps come up with provision to those rules, right? Yes. And the case involves when the pellet judge can participate in a decision after they have left the bench. And in this case judge Reinhardt. My instinct would never that. That would be at least when you phrase the question that way when can a judge who's not a judge do something. So so so here, we have judge Reinhardt who had passed away eleven days before the release of his own on Bonk opinion. In a case when the vote was believe six five a one vote majority. So had his vote not been counted. The case would have come out the other way and the question at least in part of the the main question petition is an equal pay act question in which the parties argue about whether there's really circuits but on but the second QB is made to cease judges continue to participate in determination of cases after their deaths. You know, I was always I if you were told the same thing law school that you should always write a question present. It's the answer. Sounds like the answer is. Yes. But here I think there's a pretty strong intuition that the answer is no that there there's to be no from beyond the grave judging, but the one of the arguments of the parties make back and forth is when exactly. Does an appellate judges vote vest? Does it take place at conference? It does it play take place. Only. Once the opinion comes out, if an opinion has already been delivered to the clerk's office for publication, and it's just sort of the morning that it's going to go out and everything's already done. It's already set in stone. And the judge often did those those sort of like razor's edge Hypo, actually come up in practice, so not often, but not never. So I think earlier this year, there might have been third circuit case there certainly have been cases that the that the party site back and forth in the past. There was a case in nineteen sixty American foreign steamship corporation, where a judge a retired in the date of the retirement within between sort of the on Bank participation the and the the the opinions on. So there's the you do sometimes have these strange fact situations crop up and you need to. Okay. Exactly at one point. Is it done? You know, when is the judge done with the case? And when does their votes don't need to be counted? Now, it does it seems to me, you know, I know of a rule on point. But it seems to me that the supreme court follows the contrary rule right for sure because you know, just thinking recently Justice Scalia staff, he left the court due to death midstream, you know, the court had a bunch of cases pending number of which he almost certainly voted on. And some of those cases ended up being divided for four. And so the supreme court seems to not think that you get to still vote in a case after your death. Right. That would be the impression that even though, you know, they're already been voted conference presumably some of those, and I don't know. But presumably some of those that had joined Momo's, go out and circulate. And yet the sense was that it doesn't it doesn't go out till it goes out. I mean, I don't know. I don't know what the procedure is for the court. To put its last stamp on the opinion. My impression was that. They actually waited for a conference before the opinion went out to finally approve everything. And so maybe ideas any any Justice who can't participate at that point wouldn't be. That's right. Because I think that list memory from clerking was dependence were still getting revised until the morning of or at least the day before. Yeah. I remember like do you? Remember when we were clerking, you get those emails attached. Please find the seventh and hopefully final Justice Scalia's opinion in this case, and those were not coming in like a week before my Mary those were coming in, you know. Mere days before certainly not a whole conference before. I'm not I'm not sure if there was something sort of the Friday before a Monday or something I certainly don't remember anything the morning of. But maybe not the morning because they're printing the by them, but I didn't think it was a week before. And usually the conferences would have been several days before. But maybe somebody else can remember better than I can. I don't think this is particularly secret confidential information, unfortunately, we don't get to see the file name that actually goes to the printer.

"Now good makes sense to me. I was always a little puzzled by why this case had been granted a lot of people were puzzled Liederman was puzzled and sort of hoped we could resolve his confusion. But we if anything just deepened it. For this reason because it was very expected that this was going to happen that the district court was always going to release an opinion. But maybe that was the point the point was just to do this and encourage this report not to rely on this extra record stuff, which is kind of an arguably inappropriate use of granting cert-. That's a really weird use of granting one of the limited spots on the court's docket to encourage district court to. Didn't actually maybe didn't actually burn a spot on the docket. If. Doc, it's yeah. So little puzzling. I would expect the emotion. Be granted. Right. So, but who knows the thing? And again that mere act of granting RA suggests something is a little off or wrong here because this wasn't expected result. So I just don't know what to expect the cordo. I agree with you that the more motions should be granted. Okay. So we'll see what happens with that. We did get a couple more pinions depends are are starting to to you know, I don't know if we'd call this a trickle or a flow, but we had two more. And you know, we're gonna keep getting more as the painting goes on one of them is a opinion by Justice score such in a case called new prime Inc. Versus olivera. And this is a case about the scope of the federal arbitration act, which for the most part is a statute that like subsumes everything in its path. Yes. In the court is is finally going to say, well, there's some things that the the sort of scope of this act doesn't actually encompass because he does it turns out have some exceptions that I was not that familiar with. So specifically the statute creates an exception for contracts of employment involving a workers engaged in for an interstate commerce in particular as well as things like semen, it seems to involve people involved in the transportation industry. I don't totally know why that is historically. But those folks are not within the scope of the other ones very very broad rule. The FAA that says that a courts have to defer to arbitration agreements and here the the question is does it encompass this relationship that this trucking company has with a truck? Who has been classified at least in their view as an independent contractor in not an employee, and so therefore is this a actually contract of employment? What does the courthouse says no ads is not this doesn't fall within this federal arbitration act and independent contractors are exempt from the act under the provisions that you just read. Spending by Justice Gorsuch, something on Twitter asked me. Can you? Explain this decision because Gorsuch is trying to show that he's pro trucker after the frozen trucker case, which if people may or minute remember is a decision he wrote when he was on the tenth circuit that was heavily criticised while he was in his confirmation hearings where he ruled against a trucker out say, that's that's probably a little bit too simplistic, given that this was this was a unanimous decision. The court does not seem to find this a particularly hard case unanimous, except for Cavanaugh wasn't on the court when it was argued. Okay. So what's what do you think? What do you think of the the reasoning here? The cord is just gonna sort of interpret the language of the statute and say, you know, you know, the way it's phrased it was Minton, compass all kinds of sort of employment like relationships, not just the traditional employer employee distinction as oppose. To independent contractors? Yes. So I think that this result is was very predictable after argument when it seemed like the justices were inclined to rule this way again based on just the text of the statute because this is a statutory case. And we mentioned the sticks the justices have, you know, this particular opinion, definitely has the Justice Gorsuch flair and take on legislative statutory cases. So for example, he has some lines about often by design. It is quote, hard-fought compromise, not cold logic. That supplies the solvent needed for a Bill to subscribe the legislative process. If courts free to pave over bumpy statutory text in the name of more expeditiously advancing policy goal, we would risk failing to take account of legislative compromises and a few other excerpts like that. Where he gets to kind of do a few rifts on the it's called legislation mine that he that is his that he's got this idea. And that's he's gonna push. He's gonna push it for the rest of his career. I think. Until you know, ten fifteen years from now he has a revelation and becomes a sort of living constitutionalist lib right living statutory living stature. Yeah. No. That's not gonna happen. And that's fine. But he did once we get to the second opinion in stoke Ling versus the United States or we'll get their second though. But I just wanted to quickly fly. Ju Justice Ginsberg's concurring opinions. So she's still she's still publishing opinions despite her health problems, she has short concurring opinion, where she actually sorted seems to. I it's pretty sure perceive seems to suggest a living taxed approach to interpretation where she's like. Yeah. The court here is looking at the you know, sort of original understanding of the statutory language when the statue was passed, and that's fine. But sometimes statutes might kind of contain words that are meant to evolve a little bit. So let me just keep that open as a possibility. What do you think? So I guess I would push back on your notion that that necessarily embodies a living statutory construction projects interpretation because I could could be what the original congress intended. Yeah. Right. Exactly. And not just what they intended. But like the specific word that they use. So for example, congress can sometimes use common law terms. When they use common law, terms and statutes, those terms might be understood to evolve ethic underlying common law itself involves and so there are instances where you have broad words or particular terms of art in statutes that are understood to embody some potential expansion or contraction just based on the Evelyn of the underlying body of law. I think that's right. And I think that is something that. I tried to make clear to my students. I teach a seminar that sort of touches on a lot of constitutional theory questions is that you could have constitutional revision like the amendment, right that forbids, cruel and unusual punishment. And you could you could think it is possible to think that entitles judges to figure out sort of what society currently thinks is cruel and unusual in that isn't necessarily anti originalist. If you could make a case that was what you know the statute the revision originally envisioned now, it may not they may not be true. But

"You've failed to make payments or some or on your mortgage or you violated a covenant on your mortgage. And so the lender and the lender to be clear going to operate through an agent like their offer is going to foreclose. That's when they get to sell your house to satisfy the debt, and they have that right to sell because they have a security interest, many states require you to go to court before you can initiate that sale seems kind of reasonable rice like well, sometimes the underlying contract, though has a right to sail upon default in it. So it's you could go to court or if you have this language in the contract. You know, when you sign up for the mortgage, you agree that the lender does not have to go to court, and that they can in Colorado, you go through public trustee in that trustee can sell the property without supervision of of a judge. But. That's not to say that they can just go sell it in. There's not like any sort of process in there. A Colorado law has built in certain safeguards that are certain notices that lenders have to send to get the sale process going. They required things to be published in newspapers. And the question here is whether since they're since a court is not involved. There is no chance for deficiency. Judgment. What that means is that if the home is at the sale is worth less than the outstanding amount of money owed on the mortgage. There would be some segment of money. That's not going to be satisfied some segment of debt that's not going to be satisfied. And if you go through nonjudicial foreclosure in Colorado, you don't get to pursue that judicial that deficiency judgment. And so the claim here is that when they sell the house what they are merely doing is liquid. Dating the security interest. They're not collecting a debt from the borrower in this this matters because the fair debt collection Practices Act, poses all these restrictions on collecting debts. But not on other things is that is that right? That's right. So the fair debt collection Practices Act has its own specific procedures for debt collection. Those procedures are not always consistent with state law procedures and the claim here is that the notice that's required under state law. Would've tripped a different kind of procedure under the F D C P A, if the FTC PA applied in this case, and this is a case of just kind of a crummy statute because there is historically this distinction between the in rim, right that you have under a security interest in the in persona, right? That you have under debt, and it looks because it looks like. The congress is respecting that distinction because part of the statute talks about just collecting a debt, directly or indirectly. And then in further down there's a sentence that says that talks about liquidating security interests. But it's not clear if those people liquidating security interests are captured under that collecting debt indirectly, or if they are somehow separate in such that the. Security interest provision are the only regulations imposed on people who are doing things like nonjudicial foreclosures. And the this case it certainly in the briefing talked about various federalism issues that would that would arise if congress were going to start telling states the steps that they were going to have to take to retitled property. None of those issues really came up at argument, and they Justice is really just went around in a circle with both parties about what this ill written statue could possibly mean. And in the end, it's sort of looked like that the petitioner was had the harder argument. He didn't even have Justice briar onboard with federalism, concerns. And he kept coming back to this Van Dyke Graham that he was trying to drop the actually go to the consumer. And they say, you know, what I'm gonna give you three hours to pay the debt. Repo men like that in part one he is. And so that's exactly then who is in part to but not in part one that people in part to our event diagram. There are some people who collect debts without enforcing security interests. There's some people who for security interests without collecting debts. The repo man doing the exact that's our point. What makes this heart is that even the justices who are sympathetic to his policy arguments that that you do definitely want to protect borrowers in nonjudicial foreclosures are not really able to get past the statute here in the brief doesn't didn't necessarily help it even just the soda your who seems to be of the justices most familiar with these consumer issues is in here saying that she doesn't understand what this guy is arguing in his brief don't mean to help you. But I'm reading. And it seems clearly the support your position. It's basically saying these are two additional bad ways that they can violate being a deck actor it's not limiting it to those two ways. Your I don't even know what the report was about in your break. This case, I think is confusing for a few different reasons. One is kind of what you alluded to with respect to the policy arguments, which is putting aside the text of the statute, it seems a little bit counterintuitive there would be more protections afforded by federal law to declaration that occurs pursuant to judicial process than that collect or not collection, but foreclosure that occurs pursuant to non judicial process because we usually think judicial processes as the mechanism to ensure adequate due process, and so that is is I think something that is happening in the register of these policy argument. But then I think with respect to the pure statutory interpretation part of what is confusing about this is the term. That we use have some application in a way that isn't. Maybe they're correct legal meaning and also the mechanics of how mortgages work don't necessarily coincide with like how we think about security Andrews because mortgages are actually to kind of documents and agreements, there's the no and gauge, and if you separate them than one looks more like a security interest in property, the other looks more like debt collection. I think that that is part of what is driving this because you know, if the mortgage is just someone's interest in property, then that kind of looks like the repo man where you just have someone kind of repossessing a car or physical object, and I don't think people think of that as debt collection, even if they think of mortgages is debt collection because they're often tied to a debt. You know that you. Is that fair that's close? I mean, economically mortgage foreclosing on a mortgage and repossessing car. The same thing has been some violation of of a separate debt agreement. So in the repo context, there is a contract for payments on debt somewhere that's been breached, and you know, the difference here is maybe that the repo man is a different kind of independent contractor. And that's that exactly the nature of that relationship was getting teased out a little bit

"I don't forty four states here in this case pointing out that this is a problem and of concern, and there's actually a fair number of these kind of interstate tax controversy where you're suing, you know, in in the state court in another state court against a state on tax issues. And so I had not known that. This was a problem. Maybe it's a bigger problem than than I realized there would be another opportunity for the court to reconsider this. And and another capacity. I don't know. So love to keep talking about this. When this is when I think we're gonna need to take a deeper dive into later just to profess knitting, but that might be all the time we have this week in our continuing quest to keep these episodes short of which we always fail out and cannon Shamma GAM was giving us a hard time about that fairly fairly. On Twitter the other day as people someone asked him for his favorite podcasts. Well, first Mondays, but they're way too long. So I don't know to even or even ready to make a prediction or do. We wanna just cop out on that. Because it's you know, it's early January, and we wanted just wait and see all the argument goes, what do you think? I mean, I'll make a prediction at you. Well, I'm saying I'm copping out. So. You make the prediction. I will. Okay. You'll see. Okay. And then I will give you a hard time. If that is wrong, and I will forget about it. If it is right. The opposite of that. It's up to you. You're welcome to make I I was leaning petitioner. But I'm still I'm still in the dig camp potentially. That's otherwise lean petitioner interesting. The dig do you think that there's something about this case that they didn't realize because that's the thing is like I feel like some of these issues. They know the case came up before like, what do you what do you think is going to make some change change their mind? I think a lot of the case argument is strong. I get that it's discretionary I think there is a little mess from how they would have to clean up what they said before and deal with it. I think the the you know, what will vote and Steve sax raised on on just whether the court even has article three jurisdiction is really fascinating. And I think it's something that they would have to address and it hasn't been briefed. And so maybe they don't wanna wait into that. And that is something new and that that that may be something to hang their hat on. So so all of those things together. And I would think if they were the court was really concerned about the jurisdictional issue though. They would have appointed him argument. Right. Shame the same way they asked each to come in in democracy. I think it was just last term or blade Arabia. Atra parties to address arguments. Steve sax amicus brief in that maritime Atlanta. Rian? Yeah. Which I was counsel. So yet. Yes. So they could have done that they didn't do that. I don't know. Whether that means they don't find persuasive over, you know, who knows?

And you know, hopefully, we'll have a chance to discuss this with will or Steve or both of them later on in the spring. But I think that's about all we can do for this week.

"And and they say that's now law of the case. And shouldn't be revisited. What do you think of that? Well, I'll just I found the law. The case argument quite persuasive. However. I found the the reply brief where they point out that they sh- that that argument should have been raised in the briefing -sition to be to be right law. The cases also not something that is Ituri stick or in any way limits the power of the court, so it's discretionary, and if the court wants to enforce law the case, then it can. And if it doesn't it doesn't have to in. I think certainly in this posture given that it was not raised in the briefing opposition, you know, I it may be too little too late on that point. Maybe wonder like what's the right strategic call? If you're reading the brief there. I think you you kind of have to lead with it. Because if you put it second in your briefing, you're kind of conceding that, you know, they're not really going to do it. But on the other hand, if you put it first, and they're probably not gonna wanna go for it. Anyways, they've already decided to grant sort in this question. Are you wasting your fire purse? I felt like that would have been a really hard strategic call. I can imagine the team of lawyers sitting around and really kind of debating that about how to know where to put your. Emphasis in the brief. Yeah. Right. It's I mean, I have to say it's a strong argument on its face. I found it. I found it pretty compelling. There was a clear decision and sort of high at two in the second iteration that said or a line that says, you know, we affirm on the basis of an equally divided court, and that would ordinarily have low of the case affect so it'll be very interesting to see, you know, at argument, whether whether the court gives any sort of attention to that or whether you know, just treats it as having been wave given that it wasn't raised in the bio. Yeah. And you know, I just wanna make sure I understand which is a little confusing. So, you know, because it was just a sub issue in the case there were the court was evenly divided on that issue. But then they went on, and they weren't divided on some of the other questions and issued a whole opinion. So if the entire case before had been about that they would have just issued a judgment saying judgment is affirmed by included guided court, right, right? And then that wouldn't necessarily have any law. The case, I don't know. What have the case impact? But this is this is a little different where they noted in the opinion, and they move on. And resolve the the merits of the case, right? But I think they did say correct me if I'm wrong Lear or or Dan the that that at least on that issue. They they affirmed by an equally divided court, which is a is also sort of. I'm not sure that is even the right way to even frame it. If that is an affirmative on an issue or what that has in the in in in terms of the procedure. Okay. And then, you know, and then, you know, they stress that, you know, put a lot of weight on on not, you know, overturning the case as a of the early ruling administrators ISIS, and also, you know, defend the the rule on the merits. But I wanna talk a bit just a little bit about this fascinating. Because pref- by two friends the show and also occasional hosts will bode and Steve sax. And and they do this thing that that that the two of them do particularly, well, they say, let's bring this all the way back to first principles and show, you how we've gotten confused about various things and their position, which I'm probably gonna kinda butchering probably have to have them on the show at some point to talk a little bit more because it's super interesting is basically that the custody. She does not say anything about the sovereign immunity of. States and other states courts. It's sort of a what Steve stacks would call sort of the backdrop the constitution..

"Insurers to sell policies and not discriminate to individuals with pre existing health conditions. I've supreme court hooks to this one of the you're saying on Twitter that you wanna talk about this. And I think one of the I was sort of giving you about that on Twitter, and you said, well, the hook is that this involves the meaning of a supreme court decision. If I remember what you said, which I love because it basically creates first Mondays hook for every league business because basically every legal issue involved level. Fashion. But like it's not just the meaning of a supreme court decision. It's what your decision upholding this particular same. This is like you this is you being like the supreme court justices who are unwilling to apply rules of ethics to themselves. You're unwilling to limit your own jurisdiction. No terrorist action. Just there. If if a case involves the very same provisions that the supreme court had upheld and district court says, Nah, I disagree. I'm going to reach the exact opposite outcome on the same constitutional challenge. I get to talk about it on this show. That's you're you're talking about it. And so without we're not getting to deepen the merits. I mean, it's it's a lot of people who are even sort of a lot of legal conservatives have taken the position that this is actually clearly a wrong decision. John Adler for the show who I saw here. In New Orleans. Just just yesterday has very vocally said, basically, this is a frivolous decision. And he says, you know, he expects the fifth circuit to clean up. This will never even get to this ring court, obviously, if the fifth circuit ends up affirming here and saying before characters unconstitutional, this will have to get back to the court. Yeah. I mean, honestly this decision is so dumb. I don't even wanna get into the merits on their show because it will make everyone stupider like that's well, we do have another first Mondays related hook, which is one of the architects of this challenge is a friend of the show, multiple time guest outgoing solicitor general Wisconsin, be sure Salen. So next time he shows on you, can you can tell them that face. I'll happily do that sounds like a a multi part show. Yeah. We'll so I thought the other hook that you were going to allude to Dan was the fact that so in this case the department of. Has actually adopted the position partially of the district court, namely that the provisions of the Affordable Care Act of which there's now no penalty if it's too it's unconstitutional. And that the provision is not several from the guarantee issue and community rating provisions at DOJ is arguing that those provisions of the Affordable Care Act should fall and in part because of that some the now democratic majority of the house of representatives has moved to intervene in the lawsuit to defend the Affordable Care Act, and they are represented by drum roll, please the lawyer for the Affordable Care Act, Don really and also Doug letter and the constitutional accounts accountability center. Don, really previously was solicitor general United States working for the government. Now, he's in private practice and Doug letter used to be someone in civil Pellett. And now he is the general counsel was just named like three or four days ago general counsel for the house of representatives, and that was a widely praised higher by the incoming democratic house majority. Z someone who really is a very very talented and respected lawyer. Yes. And he's also one of the individuals who left the department of Justice, a very high ranking career officer in the department of Justice, I think people kind of inferred partially because of DOJ's change in behavior cincy election, and in this particular case, you know, another career lawyer had not only withdrawn from the case after DOJ announced it was going to no longer defend the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, but also resigned and protests because again the administration's position was just so out. Landis. Yeah. So this'll be interesting one to watch. I think a lot of people are just hoping the fifth circuit fixes this. And it doesn't become a big thing that creates a lot of uncertainty for a lot of people with health health insurance. But things don't always work out quite simply so keep our eyes open. All right..

"Holiday on Monday. And there are two days where the court is only hearing one case, but those cases are pretty significant in big ones. One of them is the census case, and the other is the cross big establishment clause case that the court is hearing at the end of the city until today. I would have said those were sort of two of the biggest cases we were going to have right. This this sitting until today's grants, but but but they'll still be exciting. Anyway. Yes, also on that hearing list is another case to your attornal. Shame Dan that you mistakenly accused canon of ghost writing the bio is. Accusations were made. Right. Maybe not you maybe not by you. But this case is a pretty significant six amendment case about whether the six amendment prohibits judge from sentencing or sending a defendant back to present based on the judicial findings of violations of supervised release. So a follow on to the courts significant six cases like apprentice. So also case that I'm watching obviously, not as closely the ACA case, but still significant so not not a blockbuster sitting. But some things that will be interesting to talk about we always find something of interest to talk about. And certainly we'll be talking about American Legion of versus American humane association, the big cross case. Yes. So one other piece of not one other a pretty significant additional piece of news was that we received a release from the public information office of the court announcing that Justice Ginsburg under. Went surgery to remove cancerous Nigel's from her lungs and those novels were discovered after she fractured her ribs and was treated for that. So it was she was in office. This is this is at least her third time. Having cancer is third or fourth. I can't Murph. It's because she's had she had pancreatic cancer that is cancer that is very often fatal. But in her case happen to be discovered quite early in. She had one other about of cancer at least before that. She's had a very difficult healthier. She had the the fall that you mentioned with the broken ribs..

"Walk in the first Mondays I'm Dan ups. And I'm we eleven and I'm merit McAllister. Welcome to I. Yes. So Meriden I are recording this from the Loews hotel in New Orleans where we are both for the sociation American law schools annual meeting, which Leah you should be at was your here. But you were in sunny, California. I have a lot of foam. Oh, but I have a pretty good reason for not being there. I think do you wanna share resist it? I have a new puppy. You could bring you could bring the puppy some people bring their kids you could bring bring the dog. There's no way this puppy is ten weeks. All she is not yet ready to take a flight to Louisiana and beach killing at a hotel room for significant periods of the day, kind of puppy. She is a mini golden doodle. That's precious. My eleven year old had to stay behind at home. So I. But eleven is she's a little more able to be on her own. Right. Well, you've got lots of dog training to be doing. So let's go ahead and do the episode now, I think we were all hoping that we wouldn't have to do this episode because I sort of thought that the federal government shutdown meant that first Mondays got shut down as well. But then Lee. Check in the mail. I'm sure eventually once the shutdowns over, but we did get a question about this from friend of the show Columbia's Ronald man who was asking what was going to happen. If the government was still shut down on generous seventh because arguments are happening next week. And it seems like ever meant is definitely still going to be shut down on Monday. And I don't really know the answer to that. Do you have any idea? I don't know Ronald had some anecdotes from his time in the solicitor general's office. And he said, you know, when there was a shutdown during his tenure their assistance and the deputies were out of the office. So I don't exactly know what is going to happen given that the shutdown is still going to be in effect as of Monday. I mean, I I know arguments are still going to go on. But I wonder whether these aren't getting paid or what? So we will have to see what happens. Maybe find out from someone with some insider knowledge may be sure that with us or so what else do we have some grants, and this time the grants actually came out before we started recording, which is nice. Thank you supreme court. They you know, that's might be the only thing they get right this year. But this is pretty good. So some exciting things they're at least depending on the biggest case of the term thus far by several orders of magnitude has been granted. That might actually be true. But I think it's not the case that you are actually about to be talking about. So why don't you tell us the one that you're talking about? So I'm talking about Davis. The case about the constitutionality of another provision of the armed career criminal act nine twenty four c and whether the provisions unconstitutionally bag several courts of appeals have held that it was in light of the supreme court's decisions in Johnson versus United States AK..
