Merrick Garland Confirmation Hearing For AG
"But today is all about Merrick Garland. He'll appear before the Senate to take questions from lawmakers for the position of attorney general. Most people know Merrick Garland's name because of something that didn't happen. Garland never got a hearing after President Obama nominated him to serve on the Supreme Court five years ago. Here's NPR justice correspondent Carrie Johnson. Merrick Garland has devoted nearly 45 years to the law. But he didn't start out that way is, he told Professor Martha Minnow at Harvard Law School in 2016. Why don't you go to law school in the first place? Chemistry, well chemistry and math. Garland had planned to become a doctor. He wanted to help people one on one, but his collision with the hard sciences spun him toward the law, where he's looked for that sort of direct connection ever since. In the mid 19 eighties. At his law firm in Washington, Garland became a rising star. He made time for a young college graduate who worked in the copy center to Randy Thompson says Garland reviewed one of his papers, photocopied it and rearrange the paragraphs. That was the beginning of In essence and becoming a riding coach. For me, it was just extraordinary experience and became my coach. Eventually, my mentor and 30 something years later, a friend. Eventually Garland Road, MMA reference for law school and has kept in touch ever since, Thompson says garlands Still a little old school still humble, still looking to help. The only thing that really has changed about him, And I guess me as well is the color of hair. I don't know, well respected judge as attorney general. Help get the department under the quagmire of partisan politics that many people think it devolved to under President Trump and Attorney General Bar That's Georgetown law professor Paul Butler. He says the DOJ has been reeling from political scandals and racing to confront the threat from homegrown extremists. Merrick Garland has faced both before. After clerking on the Supreme Court. Garland took a job as an advisor in President Jimmy Carter's Justice Department. In those years after Watergate, DOJ struggled to separate partisan influence from law enforcement and establish new boundaries for the FBI. Garland also played a bit part in some of the biggest investigations of that era from political corruption to national security that Garland says later turned into hit movies. American Hustle about the Abscam case. Argo about the ex filtration of hostages in Iran and the most important the miracle on ice. Which was about the Lake Placid Olympics, where I did work on the security for the Olympics By the 19 nineties, Garland was prosecuting a violent gang that terrorized people in a public housing project. And helping build a case against DC's mayor Marion Barry. On drug charges Back inside Justice Department headquarters, Garland became the man to see for the hardest problems. The car bomb exploded outside of a large federal building in downtown Oklahoma City, Garland would soon travel to the site of the most deadly domestic terror plot in American history. 168 people died in that bombing in Oklahoma. Former deputy Attorney General Jamie Go Relic remembers watching that day with Garland by her side, he basically said while watching Children being pulled out of the wreckage. That he had to go. He really wanted to go. We both had young Children at the time and What we saw on those screens was so affecting. Garland oversaw the search warrants protected the chain of evidence and insisted that reporters have access to court proceedings. We wanted somebody Who could make sure that the investigation was done by the book. And that any indictment was bulletproof. Prosecutors later convicted Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols for their role in that bombing. Former prosecutor Beth Wilkinson says Garland played an important role in other confrontations with extremists in those years, including a standoff with the heavily armed Montana free Men. One of the examples I can think of is sometimes and there were these stand downs where there would be, you know, arrest warrants for someone, or there would be some kind of controversy between people who were challenging the federal government. America's first instinct wasn't to go in and arrest everyone. It was to try and along with the FBI to see if there's a dispute could be resolved. Wilkinson says. The FBI went on to arrest those men later. She credited garlands, quick thinking and cool head that may have prevented a tragic outcome. Just about the only criticism Garland's nomination has drawn is in the area of civil rights. Garland is a moderate, so I don't see him as the bold and visionary leader or racial justice that some people were hoping for again. Georgetown law professor Paul Butler that he's not an ideologue is both discerning for people who want an attorney general. To meet this moment of national reckoning inspired by the movement for Black lives and the killing of George Floyd Butler says he thinks girls just from the White House long time civil rights advocate Wade Henderson says Garland is up to the task. But Henderson says it's a big one. The next attorney general, for example, has to do everything In his or her power to fight for voting rights. Police reform Criminal justice reform and LGBT Q equality. For the past 23 years, Garland has been a federal appeals court judge in that role, he doesn't have much of a chance to share his personal views. Carolyn Lerner, the chief mediator at the courthouse, says Garland took an early, an important lead to update policies that protect workers from sexual harassment and other misconduct. I think it's very clear that Judge Garland cares a lot about these issues, and he really wants employees to be happy and comfortable in the workplace, and when he was chief judge, he took his responsibility. To these employees very seriously, she says. Garland wants to continue another of his projects at the Justice Department tutoring sessions with a young public school student. This year. The judge is working with an 11 year old boy and his twin sister. Your mom is Andrea Tucker. He makes this so interactive for them and so much fun and they can't get enough of it. It's the kind of public service that Garland has always wanted to

I'm just saying Very excited about it. Back in 2005. Back in 2005. It was a commission on federal election reform that was set up. And it was set up. My former President George W. Bush. The two men who led the commission. Where former President Jimmy Carter and former Sector, state sector treasure, blah blah, James Baker. And the media barely talk about this report. You're about to find out why the media barely talk about this report because many of the major reforms that air in this report Exactly. What the state Legislatures, Democrats, the state judges, Democrats and not just Democrats, but mostly and, of course, Pelosi and the Democrats demand This has been a disastrous Election from alone order perspective from a security Perspective. And you notice the Democrats are perfectly happy with they don't say a word. Not a thing. Post office Perfect. No foreign country interfered not on another job buying won fair and square. Few weeks back, the Heritage Foundation put out a piece. Called seven ways. The 2005 Carter Baker report could have averted problems with the 2020 election. I have to keep something in mind. The Democrats want problems they want Kass they want anarchy. That's what they want. Don't want to smooth running election. He didn't want one in 2000, and they don't want one this time, smooth running election. Donald Trump wins like he did in 2016, so they had to create problems. They had a change rules. Hook and by crook. So is the Heritage Foundation. Fred Lucas says. Let's take a look at the 2005 panels recommendations relevant to this year's election. Number one. Ever. Carter signed off on this. Voter ID's wow. So Carter is a white supremacist. The vast expansion of mail in voting voter I d requirements were less likely. Get it. In fact, almost all requirements are less likely, especially if you live in these battleground states. Today. States have a Patrick of voter I d laws with 36 States, either, requiring a requesting voters to present idea at the polls. Going to the National Conference of State Legislatures. They say Only six states have strict photo I d requirements Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Tennessee and Wisconsin. So none of the Democrats states. Carter Baker Commission called for voter ID standards nationwide, and it's 2005 report. And I quote who ensure that person's presenting themselves at the polling place are the ones on the registration list. I mean, there's all common sense. The commission recommends states require voters to use the real I D card. Which was mandated in a law signed by the president made 2005. The card includes of persons full legal name. Date of birth, a signature. A photograph in the person's social security number. This card should be modestly adapted for voting purposes to indicate on the front or back, whether the individuals a US citizen. Well, we know that shows the voter suppression. Particularly in the inner city in the minority communities because the Democrats have Pulis's over and over again. Number two Mail in absentee voting risks. In a brief filed supporting the Trump campaign's Pennsylvania litigation over mail in ballots. A group of Republican State Attorney general Reference the Carter Baker Commission report. It comes to mail in voting and ballot harvesting. And the 2020 election trends seemed to shift dramatically. His mail in votes were counted for their many questions have emerged about the point of origin for ballots now. These questions haven't emerged among never Trumpers. Some of the elected Republicans in Congress like this Adam King's that guy. What National REVIEW It's time to move on, you know. Trump's disgraceful because he's challenging these things. Specifically their part called on states that prohibit third parties or political operatives from collecting ballots. Practice commonly known as ballot harvesting. Here's what the report said. Absentee ballots remained the largest source of potential voter fraud. State of local jurisdictions should prohibit a person from handling absentee ballots other than the voter. And acknowledge family member, the U. S Postal Service. Other legitimate shippers or election officials. The practice in some states of allowing candidates your party workers to pick up and deliver absentee ballots should be eliminated. Wow, that's gonna eliminate a lot of voting in the inner cities. But this year is mail in voting veered into becoming a partisan issue. The Carter Center issued a statement promoting support from Ellen voting. Maintaining the safeguard should be in pick place and he was against for the harvesting. Number three, avoiding duplicate registration across state lines. Imagine that And by the way, we're finding more and more that the voting system in Georgia is a complete cess pool. Potentially solve More on that later. Nevada, the Trump campaign has searched. There were potentially thousands of that estate votes cast in one of the most costly excuse me closely contested states. Now, the Carter Baker report states in valid voter files, which contained an eligible duplicate fictional or deceased voters are an invitation of fraud. In order to assure the list take account of citizens moving from one state to the other voter databases should be made. Anto interoperable between states. Report calls for states to maintain an update their voter registration lists. They don't So when you have a state that just males out universally mail in ballots, not even the people who asked for them. You're asking for trouble. And that's exactly why Democrat elected judges, Democrat elected governors, Democrat elected legislatures, Democrat elected secretaries of state support Election observers for integrity. This is in the 2005 report. In Pennsylvania, Michigan in Nevada. Republicans have complained that qualified election observers Have been prohibited. From watching the count and by the way The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania underscored that The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. Knocked down an appellate court decision that said lucky the observers need to be able actually observe, so they need to be at least 6 ft. Away from where the ballots are being counted on, the Supreme Court said Not another law doesn't say that they just had to be in the same building..
Radio France Internationale publishes obituaries of people still alive
"Radio france international accidentally published the obituaries of bunch of famous. And still very much alive people including the queen of england. The radio station has since apologized for what it said was a technical problem that occurred when they were moving their website over to a new content management system the bbc notes that media outlets will often pre right the obituaries of high profile individuals in order to have them on hand to publish quickly in the wake of someone's passing at whatever that the broadcaster accidentally published a hundred draft stories quote. Not just to its own site but to partner sites including google and yahoo end quote is fairly mortifying almost literally i suppose i mean while it may be a common occurrence to pre right these obituaries.

Valid really was officially deceased for two years. During which time he was unable to find employment since all of his paperwork was invalid before the country finally overturned his death certificate in two thousand eighteen.

Are we better off than we were four years ago?
"Presidential campaign, Ronald Reagan struck the killing blow to President Jimmy Carter's chances for re election by asking one simple question. Are you better off than you were four years ago? A recent Gallup poll asked voters the same question. I'm Jeff Charles, socio political correspondent with liberty nation dot com, according to the poll, 56% of voters said they were better off than they were before President Trump took office. This percentage is higher than when the same poll was conducted during President George W. Bush and Barack Obama's administrations. When Reagan asked this question, the answer was a resounding no, as evidenced by his solid victory over Jimmy Carter. In 2020. The answer seems to be yes. But what does this predict about the 2020 election If American voters believe that Trump contributed to their improve circumstances, and it could mean that they will support the president, regardless of the Poles. Either way, it is clear that Reagan's question is every bit as relevant today as it was in 1980

You know, it's interesting because Bill Clinton is somebody who used to speak for 40 50 minutes at a time at these conventions, and he's getting less than five minutes, maybe a little bit of a testament to some of the baggage he carries with the new light cast on you.

Mr. Lewis fell to the ground with a fractured skull and five months later, president Lyndon B, Johnson signed the voting rights act of nineteen, sixty five until now. On the other side of that bridge Mr Lewis marched on into a life in career of activism and public service. He lost his first attempt at running for Congress in nineteen seventy seven was appointed the same year by President Jimmy Carter to the Director of action a Federal Agency for volunteerism. He then won a seat on the Atlantic City Council in nineteen eighty one and five years later ran for Congress in one. So much of the conversation about congressman, John.

Since his passing the bill was renamed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act which was adopted by unanimous consent. Before being admitted to the hospital, MR? Lewis stood in the heart of Black Lives Matter Plaza. He took his last breath on July seventeenth twenty twenty. But his legacy lives on in all of us. We begin this John Lewis. Tribu. where he also began with civil rights joining me for this very important conversation are Vanita Gupta President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on civil and Human Rights Derek Johnson, president and CEO of the of Lacey Pe-. Reverend, Michael Pfleger the senior pastor of the faith community of Saint. SAVINA. Reverend Dr William J Barbour, the second president of repairs of the breach and Co Chair of the poor people's campaign. An latasha Brown, Co founder and chief doer of black voters matter. A thank you all so much for making time to talk with me today about on. John Lewis. So I want to start with I'm. VANITA. Because of your work at the Department of Justice of course. I believe the year before you got to DOJ. The the case, the decision that gutted the voting rights act shelby versus holder, and so I wanna hear from you on some of the things that you experienced working with Mr Lewis on the other side of that because we know that right after that, all of the advocacy picked up to reinstate section five to get the voting rights on provision where they needed to be in Congress. And so just talk a little bit about some of your work with Mr Lewis on those issues. Shore. Is Truly an honor to be here with my. Warrior colleagues and friends and loved ones in the movement. Especially on today Angela. I think probably all of us were in tears watching Mr Lewis Funeral you know twenty thirteen is you mentioned that United States Supreme Court gutted the heart of the voting rights act in a devastating decision the shelby county versus holder decision. That really took away the longstanding tool of one of the most effective pieces of federal legislation in our nation's history in the voting rights act. That quired states with long histories of racial discrimination in voting to pre clear with the United States Justice Department changes made at the local level for election practices that had racially discriminatory impact. And the removal of that tool within hours of that decision coming down for the United. States. Court states like, North Carolina Texas enacted, Monster? Voter. Laws doing everything from. Putting forth restrictive voting laws cutting back early voting same day registration. And it took years to litigate and to hamlet the Justice Department did working with advocates and activists in all states. Where so years for federal courts in a place like North Carolina finally say that the State legislators North Carolina had enacted there. Monster Voter Suppression Law would such surgical precision to disenfranchise African Americans and meanwhile countless elections had taken place but Mr Lewis of legacy was that in the face of this overwhelmingly bad decision for voting rights he immediately. Went to action, which is always his way was never in a would not allow despair to hold him back inside we need to do everything we can restore it in went to work with legislative partners in the Congressional Black Caucus to put forth a bill immediately to restore it on every prior reauthorization of the voting. Rights. Act angelides always been done under. The Watch of Republican president and at least one house of Congress being Republican the unfortunate thing is after this decision, the really has not been bipartisan support and but Mr Lewis Year after year would stand at the podium introduced the law in say or in it for the long haul I've been there before I almost lost my life fighting for this law. In one, thousand, nine, sixty five, and we will persevere to us and we've got to keep our eye on the prize and we're not gonNA. Let go until the day that the bill becomes law. So in this moment. On where we're seeing a lot of performance morning by Senate Republicans who obstructed day after day everything that he has stood for and fought for with his life. It is time not only for us to restore the voting rights act passed the voting rights advancement act but to do everything else that we can to ensure open voting and go beyond it as President Obama said today won't be enough to rest and return to the status quo. It is time for this country to unregarded into make our democracy work for all of us in Gulf Far Beyon- restoration of the voting rights act in this moment.

"By politics for love God or not for the love of God for the love of politics. Any? Yeah. If his purpose is to become president. Yeah. He's been driven by that. For sure. Look some folks care more about policy, and our drew my policy that is based on their track record at cetera. But let's all they're all politicians, including the progressives that they if you're running for president kind of care about politics, and I hope you're using politics to to your policy goals. That's your end not just power for its own sake. Those are descriptions that are really just like blanket and blase that are like this guy can raise a lot of money from the people you needs to raise money from and other for I'm going to say he's got is driven by faith. And what purpose fading turps has raised a lot of money a lot of money. Yes. That's true too. Well, last one guys, so then they can compare them to president Jimmy Carter. And I was like, oh because the mainstream media almost never talks, positively about Jimmy Carter in the context of his presidency outside of his presidency. They give him credit as they should for the wonderful work. He's done in charity and carrying disease cetera. But when it comes to the president's they're like, oh pro Jimmy or the Malays that the country was in. We can ineffectual. It's like, oh my God. Are they gonna say Cory booker's, like president Carter that would normally in the mainstream media? That's terrible insolent. I don't agree that president Carter was fantastic. In a lot of ways including getting us peace in the Middle East. So anyways, no, this is one time that they've praised Carter's presidency when they're comparing him to Booker, and they said Booker reminds them of president Carter and Carter slogan about the presidency is as government needs to be quote as good and honest, and decent and compassionate and filled. With love as are the American people. So they like they had to get that quote, and it somehow tied to Cory Booker because it's like the greatest quote about you know, government and being filled with love it cetera. And they're like Booker, obviously, revises Carter who wants this. And God that is a maze. I'm because like I like love. Don't love love love. But I like love you know, I would vote for love. But so I don't know if I should endorse Booker because I I'm very torn is what that is. And the electorates will also be if the question is love or no love. That's right. And that's why CNN is such a good job of being balanced in there. Because people don't know are they roll over it, you love the only thing I would say based on the different things that you said is we have to hold off. I think on the criticisms of Bernie so far in this Goering because he hasn't announced yet once he announces, and they ignore him or denigrating then we can start, but that's going happen. No, by the way. So to these about that real quick number one has any other candidate received dozens of. Critical articles about him before they're now, they're like, oh, hey, Cory booker's got really problematic history with Wall Street cetera. Was there big exposes about that? Remember any? I hear though that he is a gifted order and a powerful political talent contender it's now. But you're right. But let's hey, let's give the mainstream media chance. And this is why we talk about things in advance on the Turks. Maybe we'll be proven wrong because we can sense the skepticism that we have that. Maybe when Bernie Sanders announces and the we all are guessing, the whole planet is guessing that he will announce and when he does maybe the New York Times CNN etcetera, we'll be like. How thing progressive champion of the people. Great candidate. Let's see. Hey, everything he's ever said you have to correctly identify. He's going to be a powerful contender. This go around you. You are just milling yourself. If you don't say that in any event..

And they're like Booker, obviously reminds us of Carter who once said this God that is amazing because like I like love. Don't love love love. But I like love you know, I would vote for love. But so I don't know if I should endorse Booker because I like I'm very torn is what I'm saying. That is the electorate will also be if the question is love or no love this right mess.

He's going to be a powerful contender. This go around you. You are just fooling yourself. If you don't say that in any event. A little bit to is policies. I wanna give you guys a heads up a bit of a warning based on some of the political history of Cory Booker. What might be coming to a news cycle sometime in the near future understand that he is a big one for sort of political performances in the real world, which none of these are bad necessarily? But just this is the thing he does. So he went on a ten day hunger strike during his mayoral run to bring attention to housing issues. He went on food stamps to show how difficult it is during one big storm. He shoveled a constituents driveway and turned his Twitter account into a thing to coordinate shoveling..

"Now, you have to remember Jeremy that what a lot of this is about and the recent times is really a tug of war partisan. War. We're seeing that play out right now, of course, and congress and the president's were often very much the same after the new deal in congress was virtually always democratic but under a democratic president Jimmy Carter, and a Democratic Congress Carter's attorney general stumbled across an old law from the nineteenth century that said, no you actually have to shut down the government. If there's not an appropriation. And there was a one day shutdown one day because in fact, they were from the same party. Congress and the president, but a one day shutdown and the Federal Trade Commission had start packing up their files that canceled their court hearings and congress appropriated the money and the next day they were back at work. But you're saying this is all because of an old law from the nineteenth century. It's an interpretation Benjamin Civiletti Carter's attorney general looked at this law, and he said, no, wait a second. You know, we actually have to find the head of an agency if they operate once the appropriation has expired, and that that got their attention. So what about when we get closer to the present nineteen ninety-five? This is the shutdown that everybody talks about this was the longest one Newt Gingrich leading congress and Bill Clinton in the White House a tussle between the president and the house played out through the longest government shutdown ever. That's right note. We now have the first Republican congress in decades headed by. A guy who is pretty determined to shake things up in the congress, Newt Gingrich. He was also determined to slash government spending. And he said we're going to close this deficit. We're going to slash programs like, Medicaid and Medicare and Bill Clinton said, no, you're not and they duked it out for three weeks. And that was the first time that the government was shut down for a prolonged basis, and that people's pay was delayed eight hundred thousand workers similar to the number of workers out right now where a -ffected by this. But the thing is and this gets to the point of do we ever learn from history. Newt Gingrich looks back on that and says that was a huge political mistake. It did not work for him and get you again. What what why nobody learned that lesson? Well, you know, Jeremy, you always feel it's the other guy who's going to get it in the neck, right? I mean, actually Bill. Clinton came out of that smelling like roses now, JoAnne when you look around the world, do other countries, do this do they have government shutdown when they can't reach a deal on funding. Oh, I don't know if this will or won't surprise you Jeremy, but the short answer to that question is no other countries don't do it in quite the same way that we do. I mean, they certainly have standoffs and strikes, but as far as a a shutdown where in entire institutions of government are shut down and employees. Don't get paid. That's really more of an American tradition has short lived as it might be in other countries when you have that kind of a financial disagreement in a budget or some kind of a financial arrangement is voted down. That's often taken as a vote of no confidence..
