It's scary because a lot of the way he is Is, you know, you act like Hitler was? Ah, really badly. And at first he wasn't He didn't kill people until the day he started the whole cause. I mean, you can kill people with the very beginning. Because you know he worked his way up through government. And in the end, you know it was it was a nightmare and and the way Trump was going, that's that's the way I mean, this one. You ripped that, Bailey. I'm serious because it's interesting.

No, no, no, I I don't have any evidence stuff, which is a little on where I mean, Barack Obama nominated two judges Bill Clinton had to You know, it kind of works out that way. The judges get older and retired. I mean, I think Richard Nixon had four. But that is in recent time. So what else has he done? That makes you think he's Hitler? Me? Because You know he's not the way he conducts his the way he conducted his rallies. Okay, His rallies of dying anyway, so that night, they don't have anywhere near the people they used to have.

Judge dreadthe fight for Ruth Bader Ginsburgs seat

"On Friday US Supreme Court. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died of cancer at the age of eighty seven. A candlelit vigil was held the following day outside the Supreme Court. Justice. GINSBURG was only the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court after being nominated by Bill Clinton in one thousand, nine hundred. I. In. Solemnly swear he was a champion of women's rights, and later in life she achieved restore status especially among young women. Now her death has set the stage for a divisive battle to replace her on the court. She was born in Brooklyn to an immigrant Father Dad was from Odessa in in Russia and to a first generation mother she was Jewish John. Fascination is the economist Washington correspondent and she was a trailblazer throughout her life. She was one of only nine women among five hundred men at Harvard law school, and when she arrived. Erwin griswold, who was then the Dean asked women in the class to stand up and justify taking a spot that could have gone to a man. She said the reason she took the spot is it was important that she understood her husband's work that would've made her husband Marty last Mardi was tax attorney well known in his own right he predeceased her but they had a famously loving and productive and equal partnership. She had a relentless work ethic in. Twenty five years in the Supreme Court she never missed today she's arrived four bouts of cancer before this fifth one killed her it was only after she got sick that she called by phone to oral arguments. I. Think People often have this idea that Supreme Court justices are sort of Stentorian wizards ready to shout down lawyer who they disagree with justice. GINSBURG was not like that she spoke very slowly very deliberately, which mirrors I think how she wrote and how she argued and how she thought she was meticulous. She was precise she she was not a showy justice. She came onto the court actually considered a moderate. There are a lot of people on the left who were upset when she was appointed because she was considered sort of two centrist. But as the court steadily moved rightward during her tenure, she has found herself the de facto leader of the courts liberal wing. Junk she spent a long time on the court. What did she achieve? Well, she was on the Supreme Court for Twenty seven years, and before that was on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, which is widely considered the second most important court in America for for thirteen. So she was a judge for forty years I was age sixty when I was nominated in some people thought I was. Too Old for the job. Now I'm into my twenty-seventh starting my twenty-seventh year on the courts on one of the longest tenured. Justices. So if you worried about my age. It was unnecessary. Before that, she argued six cases before the Supreme Court and she was involved with thirty more as the first director of the US women's rights project. The first of those report court cases was in Reid versus Reid for which she wrote a brief arguing against the law in Ohio that preferred men to women in naming executive estates. She won that case in her first oral argument before the Supreme Court. She argued against the military policy that denied many husbands, officers, the same housing and medical benefits that automatically provided officers. Wise. The thinking was that women are somehow inherently more dependent on their husbands and husbands on their wise. Now, in that case, remember she effectively represented the husband she represented family but she represented the shoes argue in favor of the husband's benefits and she austin said that she was not arguing for women's rights she was arguing for the constitutional equality of men and women. Her death is come at a critical time in American politics. It's just six weeks away from the election. So what impact does that have? Well I think it's a little too early to say that definitively. It looks as though both sides are gearing up for battle, but they seem to be quietly circling each other in two thousand sixteen. The Supreme Court is central to Donald Trump's success I think because. There is an open seat in two thousand, Sixteen Justice Antonin Scalia died, and Mitch McConnell who is then the Senate minority leader rather than hold a hearing on Barack Obama's chosen replacement for Justice Scalia whose Merrick Garland he came up with a rationale disguises the principle which was that the causing election was coming up the speech beheld open. So the voters could decide now that had never been done before it was clearly a power play. It was a live sort of issue for Republicans impelled I think a lot of them who otherwise would have held donald trump at arm's length to decide that just had to vote for him this time I. Think Donald Trump is hoping for a similar effect this time, but he also wants to get the filled as quickly as possible. For Democrats donations had started pouring in, they have been pouring all weekend. Democrats seem riled up by this. I think in their view if Donald Trump managed to get a successor onto the court, this'll be the seconds effectively stolen seat right? The I was Neil Gorsuch. who was given the seat that was held open by Mitch McConnell, and the second would be whoever donald trump nominees to replace justice GINSBURG who gets the seat because Mitch McConnell did not follow the principle he set up in two thousand sixteen. John Do you think Senate. Republicans have the numbers to they have the votes to get in trump's nominee through before the election. Well this is the question on everyone's mind. Right so far Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski Republican senators from from Maine Alaska, had said that they will not vote for replacement before November third they have said that the president who wins on November third you choose the replacement now that only gets Democrats to forty nine and they need fifty one because in the case of a tie Mike. Pence cast the tiebreaking vote Lindsey Graham had previously said he would abide by Mitch McConnell's rule from twenty sixteen. He has now gone back on that apparently because he's angry Democrats didn't roll over for Brad Cavanaugh Chuck. Grassley, who's a senator from Iowa has also previously spoken in favor of McConnell's precedent. I, have a very hard time imagining that when push comes to shove, he'll stand by his. Word and so there really is nothing Democrats can do unless they can persuade two other Republicans to come join them, and if they can't persuade those Republicans and tip the balance what happens. Then what are the consequences for the years ahead on American politics? It's clear that what McConnell did in two thousand sixteen was a tremendous violation of norms I think it's not a good principal to. Uphold I think arguing that this is now how Supreme Court seats should be awarded that in an election year, you effectively have to hold the seat open until the end of the election is a bad precedent but I think there's a difference between saying Republicans should be consistent for the sake of consistency and Republicans should follow this principle because that's how court seat should be given out now. From the Democratic Base, there's been a tremendous push to threaten Republicans with repercussions if. Retake. The Senate and the president in that includes making Puerto Rico in Washington DC states, which would effectively at least in the near in medium-term Give Democrats four senators people have also been talking about expanding the court. So the reason they are Nice Ring Court justices is not constitutional legal. It's just a statute. So if they were minded and had a majority had a president who would sign it into law, they put eleven or thirteen justices on the supreme court. The problem with that for Democrats I think is that it sort of shifts the terms. Of the debate that they are now winning I think the way Joe, Biden has pitched. This campaign is on the one hand. You have the sort of chaotic destructive Donald Trump on the other. You have Joe Biden Palm known figure who will get us back to normal. If, he comes out and endorses expanding the court or State of DC in Puerto Rico, which to be clear he has not done. He is actually a opposed expanded from court but if he comes out if Democrats threaten this, then the debate becomes a lot murkier. Then it becomes the radical change that Joe Biden wants to do right take fifty, two states and putting thirteen on Supreme Court against Donald Trump will keep things as are I think that debate does not play out very well for Democrats. John Thank you very much time.

I show sure hope that, um that it's not going to go the wrong way because our country is going to go go down if it does so. At least that's my opinion, so I don't know. Well, Louise give. Why do you keep us waiting So long for you to call back? Call me more often. We miss you. Well, because well, I moved to the one place now I gotta just there now.

Ah and Pam is nine for one. Paige's ended 89417247. Joe PAGs dot com. But let me get that Biden story before we hit the break. When you get a few comments on this on, we'll take a couple of comments on the parody as well. If you want to comment, you're hearing it for the first time. Go to Twitter At Joe Talk Show at J O E T A L K A H. W let me know what you think about it. Carrie. If you don't mind, give me what would by now to say from Fox News. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Monday refused to say whether he supports growing calls from his party to add more members to the Supreme Court. If Republicans fill a vacancy before the November 3rd election. It's a legitimate question, but let me tell you why I'm not going to answer that question because it will shift all the focus. That's what he wants by untold W. B A. Y. A local TV station in Green Bay, Wisconsin, referring to President Trump. He never wants to talk about the Issue at hand. He always tries to change the subject. The former vice president has long opposed. The issue of court. Packing about Ruth Bader Ginsburg is death on Friday has revived the concept of expanding the number of Supreme Court justices in order to shift its ideological balance. A Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, has pledged to move forward on Trump's nominee to fill the court's vacancy. It's unclear whether the vote could come before the November presidential election or in the lame duck session that takes place after the election. But before the new Congress starts into the 16 McConnell refused to hold the Senate vote on Merrick Garland, who is nominated to the court by former President Barack Obama after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. McConnell held the seat open until after the election inauguration of Trump in 2017 and Justice Neil Gorsuch was nominated and later confirmed in April 2017 There you go. He won't say if he'll stack the court. Keep in mind. This president's gonna nominate. Somebody will probably get the nominee approved before the election. If not, it would be after the election. There's going to be in in the Senate. There's going to be in the presidency. So by this saying if he wins the election in November But he won't say if he'll stack the court like well, how could he stop the court of you've got nine and Trump gets a third pick, which he's going to. How could he stacked the court? Well, they could make it 11. And that he can add too liberal judges on top of the judges that are there now. Those still too liberal judges would then give the swing vote back to the other side. Bingo 13 judges in the Supreme Court. Now that would take some doing to change the Constitution and change what could be on the Supreme Court That probably won't get done and also getting rid of the electoral college. Not so easy either. Eventually the push by the left they want to change the Constitution. They want to change the foundation. And our value system in this country. That's really what's at stake here. Okay. They don't do it. Fair and square. Okay. Fair and square. The guy has nine or the guy has three picks. We've got 99 judges 5 to 46 to three. We don't like that. We're gonna add two or four new justices. But that's just dirty. That's dirty pool. That's that's you know, Dirty baseball. That's how you play the game played by the rules make it very simple.

"Good to be with you earlier. So we're so excited to have you on. The nineteenth for people who don't know so happy that it exists in the world of media in the United States the nineteenth is a news organization. It just launched over the summer, which was, of course when we were celebrating the hundredth year anniversary of the ratification of the nineteenth amendment, and the nineteenth really focuses on empowering women by reporting on issues that affect women from politics to healthcare to the everything. Bright as we're. If I did buy hello the air we breathe you know everything So we want to get to these issues especially because my God, the election is just over a month away. mopus Oh my God no my God I'm not counting. So we have to take a moment to grapple. With this loss. I mean. We know that on Friday Supreme Court Justice Ruth Baiter Ginsberg died as she stayed with us until she was eighty seven she had been battling pancreatic cancer for years. Really a feminist icon served for twenty seven years on the Supreme Court leading advocate for women's rights since one thousand, nine, hundred, ninety s very much an American woman in all of herself. This is Ruth Bader GINSBURG during her confirmation hearing in Nineteen ninety-three. In my lifetime. Expect to see three four perhaps even more women on the High Court bench women not shape from the same mold. But different complexions. I surely would not be in this room today. Without the determined efforts. Of Men and women. Who Kept Dreams of equal? Citizenship Alive. I have had the great good fortune to share life. With a partner. Truly extraordinary for his generation. A man who believed at age eighteen. When we met. that a woman's were. At home or on the job. Is as important. As a man's. So because her death happened so close to the election. What a surprise we're. We're now seeing this ugly battle beginning to form between the two parties on went to vote for her replacement. So here's the latest on Monday president trump said, he would announce a pick by the end of the week. And on Friday Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the Senate would vote on trump's nominee. No matter. Of course, we have to remember what happened in two, thousand, sixteen when Justice Antonin. Scalia died nine months before that election that year McConnell said, well, this is his moment. He has every right to nominate someone. Even if doing so will inevitably plunge our nation into another bitter and avoidable struggle. That certainly is his right. Even. If he never expect that nominee to be actually confirmed but rather two-wheeled. Election. CUDGEL. He, certainly has the right to do that. But he also has the right to make a different choice. He could let the people decide and make this an actual legacy building moment rather than just another campaign roadshow. Whatever he decides. His own vice president and others remind us of in central point. Presidents have a right to nominate just at the Senate has its constitutional, right? To provide or withhold consent. In. This case, the Senate will withhold. and. So the Senate blocked President Obama's pick at the time Merrick Garland, and then only when trump was nominated, did the get replaced by the conservative Neil Gorsuch you know and of course, what surprise that wow, even in her death Ruth Bader Ginsburg is being blamed right? It's like. Well, why didn't you retire? You know well, why didn't you do which often I don't know it kind of happens all the time to women. Yeah. Let's talk though about the significance. Of this loss in how you who report on this every day in day out talk me down because honestly I had to meditate for frigging hour this morning I'm serious I barely slept. You know on Friday night she died literally like five minutes after I hid come off of MSNBC. Yeah it was crazy. So let's start with you Erin yeah I mean well, Listen Maria I'm not GonNa lie to you. I was just about to crack open a bottle of wine. Sad news about Justice Ginsburg came through. But of course, you know everybody in our newsroom spring into action because. Of the just the life and the legacy justice GINSBURG had know regardless of your politics, this is somebody who commanded respect for the decades of service that she has given this country to try to make this nation more fair and more free for so many Americans. So we wanted to have a chance to reflect on that even before we got into the politics of what her passing was going to mean something that. She certainly understood You know in the statement that she gave her granddaughter kind of expressing her final wishes that she wanted. You know the next president you know to be the one who nominated her replacement but we didn't really have very long You know unfortunately and I take your point Maria there are so many Americans you saw how many people flocked to the steps of the Supreme.

"I mean, come on already. What was your proudest moment as press secretary and communications director under President Trump? That you know, I've been out for 2.5 year, almost three years and no one's asked me I was a great personal moments where I got to bring my family to the White House and share the experience. Awesome. But But I will tell you the one who did the two things that I thought were great process when we got Neil Gorsuch over the finish line and the way that we got tax reform, moving the Gorsuch thing I loved just because it was like having a front row seat to history in a way that very thing people do. Just there's not that Trump's gonna have three picks already. But most presidents don't have that many. Most people don't have a role to play. That was pretty cool. The second was I was at the infancy of getting everything ready for tax reform December of that year, and it happened input, But the thing that was fascinating I'd work on the hill. I worked the RNC. I'd worked in the Bush White House. I knew kind of how to pull everyone together in terms of night watch we had done not well in health care. And then to watch that happen, and people kept saying it's not going to get done. There's no way you could do that. Not short of a time span and watch it happen and think, Okay, I wasn't there for them for the end of it, But I was there beginning it was a really cool thing. Well, you know, I remember Nancy Pelosi saying was peanuts wouldn't peanuts to may. When peanuts to the people I know from peanuts to working, it accelerated the economy's growth. In an explosive manner, and it's it is, it is truly historic. It wasn't covered that way, but is truly historic. What happened in December of that year, which I know you've been working on the whole year? Yeah, I mean, look, I again it keeps going back to this point, but I think we're dancing on the head of the same pin here that people have to look at where the economy was what the direction the country was, and you have to admit to yourself, regardless of your political positions. That this president actually got things done, and the country was moving in the right direction. You may not like a lot of the policies, but you can't be the thing that was so beautiful about Trump, too, was I remember During my tenure, French people would say, you know, he's moving the embassy to Jerusalem. He's getting out of there ran agreement, and I'm like, so you guys are basically flabbergasted that someone came to Washington and kept their word, right? Yeah, nothing more.

While the previous three lists included just one elected politician and no administration officials, this one includes three U. S. Senators all fire breathing conservative Republicans, Arkansas's Tom Cotton. Ted Cruz of Texas and Missouri's Josh Holly. All three have directly or indirectly criticized Chief Justice John Roberts for not being conservative enough, and all three have presidential ambitions. Indeed, Holly tweeted that he's not really interested in a seat on the court. Also on the list are a top White House lawyer and to top officials from the Trump Justice Department, including former solicitor General Noel Francisco who've carried Trump's legal banner in the courts. Perhaps the most interesting name on the list is Paul Clement, who served as solicitor general in the George W. Bush administration and is considered perhaps the best legal advocate among the very able lawyers who practice regularly before the Supreme Court. Clement has an added value. He's represented a variety of conservative interests before the court from gun rights advocates to religious groups to groups opposed to Obama care. As for federal judges on the list, they're all trump appointees with records hostel through abortion, voting rights legislation, LGBT rights and regulation of business and the environment. According to sources involved in compiling the list. The White House counsel, as is usual, presided over the process. But White House chief of staff Mark Meadows was aggressively involved and even the president's son in law. Jared Kushner, got into the act, as did some conservative senators like Holly, who pushed back against including Federal appeals court judge Naomi Row because of some of her writings prior to becoming a judge, But as a judge, she's written some of the lower court decisions most supportive of Trump. With the latest list of 20 new names now added to the 45 names on his previous lists. Trump on Wednesday blasted Democrat Joe Biden for failing to release a comparable list and the president issued a dark warning about the future. If Biden is elected and has an opportunity to pick one or more justices, radical justices will erase the Second Amendment. Silence political speech and require taxpayers to fund extremely term abortion. In fact, the courts five conservative justices are all in good health and two of them. Trump appointees Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh are the youngest members of the court at 53 55, respectively. The only ailing justices 87 year old Ruth Bader Ginsburg, leader of the court's liberal wing, who's being treated for 1/5 bout with cancer, her second cancer in less than two years. Should she leave the court. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell has said that the GOP would fill the sea even though McConnell four years ago refused for nearly a year. To allow hearings on President Obama's nominee to fill the seat of Justice Antonin Scalia, who died unexpectedly in February of 2016. McConnell's justification for blocking the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland was that the voters have a right to make their views known in the presidential election. A rationale that GOP leader is not embracing this year. Nina Totenberg NPR NEWS Washington

Fresh update on "neil gorsuch" discussed on Jeff Katz

"Early voting is underway. Now, technically speaking, It's in person absentee. Voting, but it's early voting. You and I both know what it really is. And I've been poking a little bit of fun. At my buddy John Reed. Because Jon is all about getting in line. He did it yesterday. He said, if you if you didn't hear him talking about it this morning, my God, Shame on you. You ought to be here each and every day six AM, but he was talking about how he got in and out pretty fast over the Henrico County registrar. Here's my concern, and I voiced this before. I don't know that I want my ballot held by anyone for 45 days. Now I happen to trust the people here in Hanover County. But I remember the election two years ago in Chesterfield County were Dave Brat lost and there were all sorts of questions, all sorts of allegations of shenanigans. Involving the polling places and poll workers. And what have you same thing in Henrico County? I just well, I'm concerned. It seems to me that if you allow these folks To handle your ballot for any period of time Maura than the the initial mandatory essential Couple of minutes here or there, too. Voted on tabulate those votes rather on election day. I just think we're opening it up to Mawr. Possibilities of abuse. Now. John did send me a text, saying he's not crazy. About the 45 days of voting, but he wanted to make sure And this is another good point that something didn't happen on November. The third A couple of people have raised this and now I'm beginning to. I don't want to say that. I'm reevaluating my position, but I am certainly reconsidering it. They are saying. They believe that Ralph Northam, who let's not kid ourselves is ah. Well, he's a partisan, I guess is the that's the nicest way to say it right? He's a He's a partisan. Democrat Hack just doesn't have the same ring to it. I guess we'll go with partisan. What could he would he do something? With this corona virus stuff on. I don't know. November the 1st November the second saying, Oh, well, you know what? Everybody has to stay at home for the next week. Nothing's going to be open on November the third, you remember his first Royal proclamation or executive order and what the terminology is, But you remember that And it was clearly designed to impact the primary election. And the convention and all the rest of it. For Republicans. I mean, it was as clear as day. And because Ralph Northam has absolutely no shame whatsoever. Well, he just pushed that through and and Republicans were left standing on the sidelines going, man. I can't believe that happened And I think we've got to stop saying I can't believe that happened. We've gotta look and say, Damn, that is happening now. How do we combat it? And I don't know the answer to that. I wish I could give you an easy answer. I wish I could tell you. We pick one from from Section one and three from Section two, and then we add them together, and that's how we do that. I don't know. But as I hear the stories of long lines and Fairfax Well, those are federal government employees. And not every federal government employee is ah, Tony fam or or a Tom home. A lot of those folks in Fairfax. Quite frankly, are the swamp. And do you think they're gonna vote to support someone? Who for all of his foibles? All of his errors? All of his? I don't know, interesting, questionable tweets and comments. Still has a CZ his mission. Fighting on behalf of the American people to drain the swamp. Do you think anybody up there is going to vote for him? I just don't think so. I just don't think so. And what happens of President Trump wins Now they're two different parts of this part number one is the immediate fight that you and I are in And that is to make sure that President from gets a third appointment to the Supreme Court, this would be a phenomenal in my opinion. Now we know that some of the names that are being floated the first one in the one that quite frankly, has been around the longest and was mentioned even as Neil Gorsuch and Brett Capital got the call. Amy Cockney barrettes name has been out there and was mentioned during each of those process sees We hear stories of the folks at Notre Notre Dame. That one. They were grooming her through law school they saw in her someone who could someday sit on the Supreme Court there. Very few folks. They're going through law school. Who could generate that sort of enthusiasm and interest on the part of the professor's Right. Those professors have seen thousands of people come through. Their law schools. And perhaps they look at them ago. Yep, that guy's hanging out a shingle as soon as he graduates saying, if you slipped and fell, you call me and the other one's going. Yeah, he's going to give Saul Goodman a run for his money. How many times do they look a student? Go Wow. This young lady, this young man they could be on the Supreme Court someday. Well, all of these professor seem to get that sense seem to get that feeling. From Amy Cockney balance. And so they took great steps according to these stories to groom her train her prepare her Saito or you know what? You've got a brilliant legal mind. You could do this. Now are the Democrats going to be able to accuse her of rape? Remember? That's what they said about bread capital. I mean, they they absolutely went. Bat crap. Crazy trying to stop Brett Kavanaugh. What are they going to say about Amy Cockney Barrett? The woman has seven Children. Including two who were adopted. They happen to be visible minorities, By the way. Oh, my gosh. Right. So I guess now here's what I'm thinking and one of the Children is disabled. The one of these Children has special needs. So I'm thinking their usual garbage. That's what it is. They reach into the garbage can and they pull out crap, and then they throw it and they throw it and they throw it. Well. Judge Amy Burke or Amy Colin Barrett and her husband have adopted two Children. Who happened to be black. Ha. Well, I guess they can't play the race card. And one of their Children is disabled has special needs. I guess you can't can't play the card that says all you hate anybody with a disability. But believe me, I've heard all this nonsense over the years. What other card? Can they play? Well, of course. They're going to be very, very upset because they are sure that ah Judge barrettes..

The 'Keep Nine' Amendment

The 'Keep Nine' Amendment

"A little idea of exactly what your organization keep. Nine. Is it? Nine is a bipartisan organization that is working to persuade Congress to propose what would be the 28th amendment to the United States Constitution That would say the Supreme Court of the United States is nine justices. Be the shortest amendment in the Constitution, and it would prevent the idea that some people are talking about which is to APAC. The Supreme Court the Supreme Court, is it our most important institution? The United States Constitution is an amazing document, and it creates a balance between the executive legislative and judicial branches. And the Supreme Court is the branch that has been called on time and again to resolve disputes between the executive branch and the legislative branch and to resolve issues that otherwise might Tear the country apart. So it's a critical institution for the survival of American democracy. And the most important element of the Supreme Court is that it is independent. It can't be controlled by the president. It can't be controlled by Congress. And throughout our history. There have been people in the presidency and in Congress that I wanted to destroy the independence of the court. And it may be the most important issue of this election. Whether or not this election results in the election of folks Who want to preserve the independence of the Supreme Court for the election of the folks who want to destroy it. Now the president Any president has no control over the Supreme Court, but it can have a lot of influence because let's face it. President Trump has two picks to the Supreme Court already and Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. There's still two picks from President Obama's era. There's two from the George W. Bush era on there, There's two from the Clinton era on there and one remaining one from the George H. W. Bush era. So let's just Those ugh that if President Trump is reelected, he could get possibly two, maybe three more Supreme Court justice opportunities coming up here, with Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Clarence Thomas, both rumored to be considering retirement. I think Stephen Breyer as well somewhere down the line, but in the next few years, so that proves the importance of the Supreme Court and how much influence we could have for 50 years going forward from the Trump Eric. Correct, Absolutely. But there's an even more fundamental issue more than 100 years, the Supreme Court In an independent institution. Congress has not changed its size. But if after this election we end up with Ah, somebody that wants to pack the Supreme Court. We could end up with not just the names of people on the Supreme Court changing but the nature of the Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court became a political football between the two parties, with one party packing it when they were in charge and another party packing and when they were in charge, we would lose one of the most important institutions in the country. And that independence is mohr important, then who is appointed and we're very fortunate right now, in that both candidates appear to say that they don't want a packed court. Trump is attack court packing. And Biden said, I don't want a packed court either. But the problem is that there's some people on the Biden a team, including Kamala Harris, who said in the past that they like the idea of court packing and the Democratic Party platform. Includes language that says they favor court restructuring. And Senator Chuck Schumer has said that he might restructure the court if the court doesn't rule in ways that he likes. So there's a threat out there. And our appeal is two candidates in both parties who say that they don't want to pack the court to endorse the Keep Nine Amendment so that we are permanently protected against efforts to pack the court. And we think that's a critical issue that voters ought to care about because it will show what kind of governance we're gonna have over the next four years. If we have people who support to keep nine Amendment, we can rest assured that the court is not going to be packed. But if we have people who won't support to keep nine Amendment, we've gotta worry and so candidates for Congress candidates for the president. We think we ought to be asked. Do you support to keep nine Amendment because if they would pack it like you mentioned that would lead to political chaos The Supreme Court is always seen is at the institution that is more rational and steady and less fashionable, right and throughout our history, the biggest beneficiary of an independent Supreme Court are minorities because it's the Supreme Court that protects the unpopular rights of minorities. Every once in a while, you get a wave in Congress, so we got to do something. People say Well, it could affect minorities and sometimes in Congress. They don't care and the classic example of the Supreme Court standing up for minorities was almost 200 years ago, when Andrew Jackson decided that he was going to see the land of the Cherokee Indians and deport them all. The Oklahoma and the Supreme Court stood up and said, it's wrong. Unfortunately, at that time, Andrew Jackson said, Well, how many regiments does the Supreme Court have and ignored their ruling? Now? That wouldn't happen today, The Supreme Court has enough power to resist that kind of defiance. But if a president could say, Well, I don't like your decision. I'm going to pack the Supreme Court put my own people on the rights of minorities would be AH, gravely at risk. There were other presidents in the past have threatened to stack the Supreme Court as well. Back in the early 19 hundreds correct right. The most recent memory was Franklin Roosevelt in 1937. He had just won an overwhelming victory in 1936. Hey, had overwhelming majorities in both houses of Congress. And so he decided that he was going to use that opportunity to put some of his allies on the Supreme Court because at the time they were ruling against some of the legislative proposals that he had made and what he didn't expect was a outpouring of public opposition in both parties. And it basically destroyed his ruling coalition in his second term, and our message to both parties is don't go too far proposed your policies past them in Congress, but preserve the independence of the Supreme Court. Because if you try to upset that you're risking all the other items in your agenda. How did they come to nine as the final number in the Supreme Court? Well, it's very interesting history for the first almost 90 years of American history. The Supreme Court was, in fact, a political football and the Republican majority after the civil War was stuck with a Supreme Court that had been appointed by pro slavery president prior to the civil war, And so they basically was a naked power grab. They expanded the size of the court put their own people on. And you can argue that that may have been the right strategy after after a civil war, but very soon thereafter, the tradition grew At the Supreme Court ought to be independent was a tradition honored by both parties after 18 69 and people thought, you know people would honor tradition and in 1937. When FDR said, I'm going to pack the court, it was a great shock to people Now. It's interesting that FDR also broke another long standing tradition in American politics. He ran for a third term, and there had been a tradition ever since the founding of the republic that presidents only ran for two terms. And what happened in that case was, there was a public outcry and the 22nd amendment to the Constitution, which limits presidents to two terms was a response to Roosevelt's running for a third term. And our view is that just as the 22nd amendment put into the Constitution, a longstanding tradition, a new 28th amendment that says the Supreme Court of United States should be nine justices is the right way together. NT the independence of the Supreme Court for the future and is keep nine dot org website the best place for people to go to either support your idea for an amendment or just get more information. Absolutely. And if you go to that website, you'll see an E mail address where you can email us with specific questions or if you want to get involved in this effort. We're hoping that in the next two months, an army of citizens will AH demand that candidate for Congress for Senate and for the White House will answer the very simple question. Do you support to keep Nine Amendment? To keep the Supreme Court at nine justices and by the way, our hero on this issue was Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has said she opposes court packing and she thinks nine is a good number for the Supreme Court.

Year or so everybody went in thinking that the liberals would get just pommelled and that America's social progress would get set back fifty years, and in some ways you not. Everything has been a win for sure I. Don't WanNa pretend that everything has been a win. There have been some surprising wins like last week on the day. That show came out the supreme. Supreme Court ruled that the trump's attempt to extinguish. DACA was unconstitutional. He didn't do it the right way so Daca.

What do you think is going to happen with the case? It might come down tomorrow. It might come down next week because the supreme, court loves to wait and save the big cases for the end.
