"I still think there are some voters who need to go to the polls they may not be changing their mind but he needs to get his constituents at vote and you have you think of donald trump. He knows how to play those crowds. He knows what to say to his audience. You know they had them paying yesterday for found. Gt psyched in his like wh- weights like get back in into the white house. That was something all. Look out when i get back in the white house. He he's crowd love him and you do have to say we have to remember. He was super sick just a few weeks ago and he has got some kind of inner strength is extraordinary and when he was biden near biden is a decent man who makes good speeches. But when you see even him next to a bomber he he just doesn't quite have that rhetoric and he's he's stymied by the that he's wearing a face mask all times. It's it's a little bit kind of lacking energy. And i'm not saying that's down to to the man or his age but you you you do see why trump managed to excite his core audience in the past and why potential again this time. I don't know if it will upset the applecart. We're still seeing most posters. Saying that if you look at the the the national polls biden certainly roughly about fifty two percent on an average of all the polls and seems set for victory despite all the nuances of the electoral college. Well well done for for trump if for connecting with his audience. He knows how to do that. While the us election at home is being described as the most consequential in recent memory governments around the world will be watching the results tomorrow night too closely to. I spoke recently to raise the afshar. He is the executive director of the independent diplomat advisory group based in new york city and he told us on the telephone from new york. The effect the lack of a clear and consistent us foreign policy has had on the us's international partners over the past few years the consequence of that at the moment is that is that other countries Stinky rely on the us. Anymore as kinetic holiday you see this in the european union that relying much more on themselves than not relying on the us normally really even sitting around waiting to see if there's a change of administration in the us that they could. They could work with any more effective way. They simply can't rely on us And i think that is the case across the board. There isn't really any way should rely on the us to help deliver an effective diplomatic strategy. If anyone thinks that just because joe biden get selected that suddenly going to reverse the damage being done over the four years. I think that's that mistaken. It's going to take aggressive. Absolute razor sharp there speaking to me last week from new york city. Fernando you've been taking a look at the us's international relationships particularly with your home country. Brazil is the brazilian and the press. More broadly across latin america viewing tomorrow's vote in the united states. Well of course they are. They are looking to see what you know. A trump law swimming to brazil. And i think you mean a lot because you know both nardo. he's very close to donald trump. in fact i mean as a joke. I mean it's true. Allegedly said i love you too when they met to the un assembly and trump replied. Nice to see her again. I think you got a little bit confused with his english but both really does love trump And i think he's already quite as relating himself in the world stage a bit. You know without you know his main partner. Donald trump huby even more elated especially in latin america. Where you see. Recent victories from the left in bolivia and argentina and even the centre-right governments of chilean uruguay. You know agree with some of both sonars economic policies. But they don't like to you know to be too close for him because of the the way of the fist behavior Which is more similar to donald trump in a way so yeah it is warring diplomatically. I mean to brazil And there's another thing thomas as well You know joe biden. He said in a recent debate that you know. We've brazil doesn't protect the amazon which so freakonomics consequences. i mean. he didn't explain further. What does that mean. But that doesn't play very well resilience as well. So i mean we have to wait and see. Perhaps joe biden's elected you know we might give more strength to the centrist and center-left parties in brazil as well But yeah i think both scenario you know i. I'm sure he'll give trump and say i love you again. Andrew final thought you to go back to some of what razor shah said that remote to go in your mind. How easy do you think it might be to repair some of the damages. He puts it. That's been done to idea of. Us soft power over the past couple of years not everyone of course as perhaps we'll see it as damage done but how does the idea of. Us soft power change now. G think could no matter who wins tomorrow night. Well i think when you have a partner who suddenly turns against you is difficult to deal with. goes a little bit mad. You begin to think. Maybe i can make it on my own. I you know we don't need each other. But here with america i think if they came back with a bit more of an embrace but more engagement the the worries of now would disappear and dissipate because in the end you're would like to have a strong alliance with the us many countries in asia. Word so some of the pressures on europe have been good. You know that we weren't spending the right amount of money on for nato for example and maybe trump was right there. So you need to engage in this organization if you really if you really want to work for this is also an unusual period for pags many of the other things that kind of your get out of jail cards with soft power you sending your culture overseas well you hollywood was suspended Bringing people into your diplomatic missions and embassies well embassies being closed around the world suddenly not many embassy parties pressing ahead Welcoming students from around the world come to universities well. Visas were suspended travel tourism. All these things have been suspended by covert so is left. America probably not isolated but less influential less connected on the soft power front than it has been for very long time but if covert turns finally in a in a better direction if biden and his team won't re-engage with europe and asia. I think they'll find willing partners while we will have special coverage on election day tonight tomorrow in the united states here monocle twenty four. That begins tomorrow evening next year on the late. Addition the british foreign correspondent robert fisk whose coverage of conflicts in the middle east in the one thousand nine hundred eighty s on words made him one of the most recognizable names in foreign reporters has died at his home in the republic of ireland at the age of seventy four.

"But this is you know, what bothers me about people who say that is okay. Then be the same guy or the same gal on all criminal Justice issues because. You can't just say I don't like the criminal Justice system when it's investigating me. Because this is exactly what they do across the board. They don't miraculously change when they are investigating the president. They don't miraculously change and that goes for whether it's Ken Starr, whether it's Robert Muller, whether it's Robert Fisk who's before Ken Starr, it's the same playbook. It's they come. They investigate. They try and get you know, they've got was laughing this last trial. I did the DA actually went on the record. Let's say DA case, which means it was in state court at a very serious case. And wanted the judge on the record to admonish the jury that if they listen to reasonable doubt. Now, he he preface this. This is within the last ninety six hours he prefaced with. I don't listen to reasonable. Okay. I love it. When they always say, I I don't listen to reasonable doubt. However, I'm told it's a very popular show in amongst prosecutors. So like that very popular show among prosecutors. And I'm told even though he didn't mention the names he talked about he meaning me, and they didn't say that. I'm popular they said Adams popular because they would never give me. I understand I understand. And one of the jury admonished, if they listen to Corollas show, the specifically reasonable doubt that I talked about the case, and I was lambasting the don't even remember talking about it. But. And do that. And I threw a little bit of a fit in the judge didn't do it. But I thought you would like to know that your fellow brethren all your current prosecutors. Your alumni, dude, listen to you. They're big fans. Well, thank you. And thank you for listening. As you listen to this. I love. There's so much going on in the world. There's so much going on with the courts and the cases in the news, and I find myself sitting there and watching both sides and just thinking I can't wait to get to Mark to hear the truth because it can be spun in any direction, and the problem is is as a lay person, you'll never know. What's going on turn on you won't Rachel Maddow show? Go what do you mean? There's nothing going on with the Mueller thirty six conviction thirty six or something whatever it is thought some number like that can't be nothing. But. You think? All right. Well, there's all those prosecutions or convictions, or whatever it is. It sounds like something then you switch it over to FOX. And they're explaining it zero that they're just taking old man and put them in jail and threatening them for no reason. And then I mean, the whole thing just cracks me up, but I'm gonna it'll lead me into something else that I wanted to talk about after I talk about theraworx T H E R A W O, R X leg or foot cramps.

"And if we always synthesize it through this other Muslim, you know, what I mean, like the cultural war that they've created the east versus west and the anti Muslim stuff that goes around here. It's absolutely insane. Because whatever, but it's how would so underreported and yet it's so the pictures used you posted the white phosphorus that's being used up so in so it was April this year that all the west and all the newspapers and all the civil humanitarian organizations in western leadership, and is rarely leadership blamed Syria blame the prisoners Syria blame the Syrian army offer having allegedly used to come go up in into now. I know that's not true and any independent journalists. That's goes, it's gone. There knows that's not true and Robert Fisk who has a hate on the Syrian government knows. That's not true. And he went there, and he talked with the Syrian medical staff there. He concluded himself. There was no attack and the OB CW went there the organization for the prohibited. From addition of weapons went there and did not find the alleged nurture nerve agent Seren that was alleged to have been used there. But in any case at that time, Israel is rarely leadership. I forget which leader it's probably Netanyahu was pointing their finger at Syria, and you know, on crocodile cheering about chemical weapons have been used when I lived in Gaza was living there during the war on Gaza in December two thousand eight January two thousand nine Israel used white phosphorus, and it wasn't used as a smokescreen. It was fired deliberately at civilian homes in residential areas. It's a school that was housing internally displaced Palestinians in in the main hospital shield Haas. Spital unmet family half the family. I later learned was killed by white phosphorous shell the other half were grotesquely mutilated by this. This this chemical that burns till bone. It's not even supposed to be used isn't like against the Geneva accord to youth that. Understanding is that it's permitted to use in non civilian areas as a smokescreen, but as you know, Gauzes a tiny place now to people living there, it's like forty kilometers watt long and at its wife's point a twelve plumbers lied, and there's hardly a place that you could imagine would be acceptable to use white Kloss for since it's so densely inhabited. And I mean in the destruction. I just I mean. What it does to people is? So there's really no words for it. Because the pictures you showed were about big drives and even seen some of those before about, you know, infants and and you just don't hear about it. I mean the last couple of in the last month. We've all it sucks. The Kosovo g the journalists who wouldn't happen to him. I mean, that's that's messed up, man. But I mean, the list I mean, what twenty there's so many different journalists who've been killed not just in Palestine, not just in Syria, but Turkey, and the list is absolutely insane. And we don't hear anything about it. All we get is the complete opposite of you know, it's crazy. The again, the version of reality just really freaks me out because the media there's so culpable in this in the power of the median controlling in controlling the narrative, which in turn controls people's perception of events is so powerful, I mean chair saying right now this is so opposite of what we hear complete opposite. They're creating the narrative, they're controlling an creating the inventing things. That never happened. I mean, another thing I've been doing on my recent trips to Syria is to really try to collect as many testimonies as I can about the early days in Syria..

"As a reminder to our guests in the galleries expressions of approval or disapproval are not permitted in the Senate calories. The center for Maine. Mr President, Mr president the five previous times said I've come to the floor till explain my vote on the nomination of Justice to the United States Supreme court. I have begun by floor remarks explaining by decision with the recognition of the solemn bake shirt and the importance of the occasion. But today, we have come to the conclusion confirmation process that has become so dysfunctional, it looks more like a caricature of a gutter level political campaign. Then a solemn occasion, the president nominated Brad Kavanagh. On July nine within moments of that announcement special interest groups to race to be the first to postseason, including one organization that didn't even bother to fill in the judge's name on its pre written press release. They simply, bro. That they opposed Donald Trump's nomination of X adds to the supreme court of the United States a number of senators joined the race to announce their opposition. But they were beaten to the punch. By one of our colleagues to actually announced opposition before the nominees identify team was even know. Sad time. We have seen special interest groups whipped their followers into a frenzy. By spreading misrepresentations and outright falsehoods about judge Cabanillas judicial record over the top rhetoric and distortions of his record and testimony at his first hearing produced short-lived headline switch, although two hours later continued to live on and be spread through social media interest groups have balls so spent an unprecedented amount of dark money opposing this nomination. Our supreme court confirmation process has been in steady decline for more than thirty years. One can only hope that the cabin. Nomination is where the process has finally head rock bottom against this backdrop to it's up to each individual's. Senator to decide what the constitution said. Vice and consent duty means. Informed by Alexander, Hamilton, federalists seventy six I have interpreted this to mean that the president has broad discretion to consider considerate nominees philosophy. Whereas my duty as Senator is to focus on the nominees qualifications. As long as that nominees philosophy is within the mainstream of judicial. I have always supposed litmus test for judicial nominees with respect to their personal views are politics, but I fully expect them to be able to put aside any and all personal preferences in deciding the cases that come before them. I've never considered the president's sedan ity or party when valuating supreme court nominations as a result. I voted in favor of justices Roberts and Alito. Hoover nominated by President Bush, justices, soda and cake. Nominated by President Obama and Justice scores such who was nominated by President Trump. So I began my valuation of judge Kavanagh's nomination by reviewing his twelve year record on the DC circuit court of appeals, including his more than three hundred opinions and his many speeches and law review articles nineteen attorneys, including lawyers from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service freaks me many times each week and cystic me in the valuating the judges extensive record I met with judge cavenaugh for more than two hours in my office. I listen carefully to the testimony at the committee hearing, I spoke with people who knew him personally, such as Condoleeza Rice and many others. And I touched when judge Cavin a- as second time. By phone for another hour to ask him, very specific additional questions. I also have met without some of my constituents spoke the advocates and many opponents regarding judge cabin on one concern that I frequently hurt was set for judge would be likely to eliminate the Affordable Care ACT's vital protections for people with preexisting conditions. I disagreed with this contention in sent in seven sky, the holder judge Cavin rejected a challenge to the ACA on narrow procedural grounds per serving the LA in many experts have said that his informed Justice Roberts opinion, upholding the at the supreme court. Furthermore, judge Kavanagh's approach toward the dock. Doctrine of separate -bility is narrow when a card of a statute is challenged on constitutional grounds. He has argued for severing the invalid clause as surgically as possible while allowing the overall to remain intact. This was his approach in his descendant. A case set involves a challenge to the structure of the consumer financial protection bureau in his dissent. Judge cabinet argued for quote severing any trap Matic portions well, leaving the remainder intact and given the current challenges to the ACA proponents, including myself protections for people with preexisting conditions should want to Justice who would take just this kind of froze. Another assertion that. I heard up and is that judge cabinet cannot be trusted if case involving alleged wrongdoing by the president were to come before the court. Basis for this argument seems to be two fold. I judge cavenaugh has written that he believes that congress should enact legislation to protect presidents from criminal prosecution or civil liability while in office. Mr president. I believe opponents miss the Mark on this issue. The fact that judge cabin offered. This legislative proposal suggests that he believes that the president does not have such protection current light. Second fares. Some who argue that given the Kerr's special counsel investigation. President Trump should not even be allowed to nominate a Justice that argument ignores our recent history, President Clinton in nineteen Ninety-three nominated Justice Ginsburg after the whitewater investigation was already underway. And she was confirmed ninety six three the next year just three months after independent counsel. Robert Fisk was named to lead the whitewater investigation, President Clinton nominated Justice briar, he was confirmed for stations along the Sean Hannity show network. We are going to stay with this through our first break and continue. Our coverage supreme court justices have not. Hesitated to rule against the president nominated them perhaps most notably in the United States versus Nixon three Nixon appointees who heard the case. Join the opinion against him. Judge cabinet has been unequivocal in his Felipe that no president is above the law. He is stated that Marbury versus Madison Youngstown sale versus Sawyer and the United States versus Nixon are three of the four greatest supreme court cases. And because straight why do they happen? And each of them is a case where congress served as a check on presidential power. And I would note that the fourth case the judge Cavin has pointed to as some the greatest in history was Brown versus the board of education. One Cavanaugh dissension ills traits the point about a check on president chimpanzees directly. He wrote the opinion in Hamdan versus the United States said case that challenged the Bush administration's military commission prosecution up an associate of Osama bin Laden fiscal conviction. What's very important to the Bush administration. But judge Cavin quit been appointed to the DC circuit by President Bush and had worked in President Bush's White House ruled that the conviction was unlawful as playing during the hearing, quote, we don't make decisions based on who people are or their policy preferences, or at the moment we base decisions. On the law and quote. Others. I've met with have expressed concerns said Justice Kennedy's retirement threatens the right of same sex couples to marry yet judge Cabanera described the burqa Pels decision, which legalize same gender marriages as an important landmark precedent. He also cited Justice Kennedy's recent masterpiece cage cake shop opinion for the courts majorities, stating that, quote, the days of trading gay and lesbian Americans are game lesbian couples as second class citizens who are in carrier in dignity and worth are over in the supreme court and. Others have suggested that the judge hold six. Streams abused some birth control. In one case judge cabinet, incurred disfavor. Both sides of the political spectrum are seeking to ensure the availability of contraceptive services for women while minimizing the involvement of employers with religious objections, although his critics frequently overlooked, this point judge Cabanillas dissent rejected arguments set the government did not have a compelling interest in facilitating access to contraception. In fact, he wrote that the supreme court precedent strongly suggested that there was a compelling interest IMP Acilitator access tip birth control. There is also been considerable focus on the future of abortion rights based on the concern that judge a- would seek to overturn Roe v. Wade protecting this right is important to me. To my knowledge. Judge Cavanaugh is the first supreme court nominee to express the view that precedent is not merely a practice and tradition but rooted in article three of our constitution itself. He believes set precedent is not just a judicial policy. It is constitutionally dictated to pay attention and pay he to rules of precedent. In other words, president isn't a goal or aspiration. It is a constitutional tenant that has to be followed except in the most extraordinarily circumstances. The judge further splaying that precedent provides stability, predictability, reliance and fairness. There are course, rare and extraordinary times where the supreme court put right-wing overturn a precedent. The most famous example was when the supreme court in Brown versus the board of education overruled Plessey versus Ferguson correcting a grevious sleeve wrong decision to use the judge's term allowing racial inequality. Someone who believes that the importance of Cranston has been rooted in the constitution would follow long established precedent, except in those rare circumstances where a decision is gravy Asli wrong or deeply inconsistent with the law. Those are judge Kavanagh's praise as the judge should serve to me alarming established precedent. It's not something to be trimmed narrowed discarded or over its roots in the constitution gives the concept of starry, decisive greater weight such that the president can't be trimmed or narrowed simply because the judge might want to on a whim insured, his views on honoring precedent would Chris clued attempts to do by. Stealth that which one has committed not to do over. Noting that Roe v. Wade was decided forty years forty five years to go and reaffirmed nineteen years later in Planned Parenthood versus Casey, I asked judge Cavin a- whether the passage of time is relevant to following precedent. He said decisions become part of our legal framework with the passage of time, and then honoring precedent is essential to maintaining public confidence. Our discussion Ben turn to the right of privacy on which the supreme court relied in Griswold versus Connecticut. A case that struck down the law banning the use since sale of contraception. Griswold established the legal foundation that led to row eight years later. In describing Chris falls as settled law. Judge Cavin observe that. It was the correct application of two famous cases from the nineteen twenties Meyer and peers better not seriously challenged by anyone today finally in his testimony. He noted repeatedly that Rowe had been upheld by Planned Parenthood versus Casey, just grabbing it as precedent on precedent. When I asked him what it piece sufficient to overturn of long established precedent it five. Current justices believed that it was wrongly decided he emphatically said, no. Opponents frequently then candidate Donald Trump's campaign pledge to nominate only judges who would overturn roam the Republican platform for all presidential campaign for we're going to continue our coverage of Senator Susan Collins on the Senate floor. She is about to announce her decision. This could be the determining vote as relates to judge Cavanaugh. We will be allowing our stations across the Sean Hannity show network to make their own decisions on whether to break away.

These are the very three Justice since Republican president appointed Justice who. Who are Thursday Casey decision, which reaffirmed Roe. Furthermore, pro choice groups vigorously oppose each of these justices nominations incredibly they even circulated buttons with the slogan. Stop suitor or women will. Just two years later, just as suitor Kowa Casey opinion, reaffirming a woman's right to choose. Suffice. It to say prominent advocacy organizations have been wrong. Same interest groups have speculated that judge Cavanaugh selected to do the bidding of conservative ideologues despite his record of judicial independence. I as the judge point blame whether he had made any commitments or pledges to anyone at the White House to the federalist society to any outside group on how he would decide cases he unequivocally assured me that he had not Judge Kevin has received rave reviews for his twelve year track record as the judge, including per his judicial temperament the American bars sociation gave him its highest possible rating. It's standing committee on the federal. Traditionally conducted an extraordinarily thorough assessment. Some listening input from almost five hundred people including his judicial colleagues the APA concluded that his integrity judicial temperament and professional competence, met the highest standards. Lisa flat who has argued more cases before the supreme court than any other woman in history testified quote by any objective measure judge Cavanaugh is clearly qualify to serve on the supreme court. His subpoenas are in very fleet thoughtful and fair Miss Black who clerked for an ardent admire of Justice Ginsburg. And who is in her own words and unapologetic defender of a woman's right to choose. Sets that judge Cavin fits within the mainstream of legal. She also observe that. Judge cabinet is remarkably committed to promoting women in the legal profession. That judge Cavin is more of a centrist than somebody is critics maintain is reflected in the fact that he and chief judge, Merrick garland voted the same way in ninety three percent of the cases that they heard together indeed chief judge garland joined in more than ninety six per cent of the majority opinions authored by judge cabin a- dissenting. Only one. Despite all this sceptre weeks.

Some argue that because this is a lifetime appointment to our highest courts court the public interest requires that Dow's fee resolved against the nominee others see the public interest as symbolically dinars long established tradition of a fording to those accused of misconduct. A presumption of innocence in cases in which the facts are unclear. They would argue that the question should be resolved in favor of the nominee. Mr president. I understand both viewpoints. This debate is complicated. Further by the fact, that the Senate confirmation process is not a trial, but certain fundamental legal principles about do press says the presumption of innocence and fairness do bear on my thinking, and I cannot abandon them. In valuating any given claim but bis contact we will be ill served in the long run. If we banned the presumption of innocence and fairness tempting though, it may be we must always remember that it is when passions are most inflamed. That fairness is most in jeopardy. The presumption of innocence. It's relevant to the advice and consent function. Accusation departs from an nominees otherwise. Exemplary record I worrying that departing from. This presumption could lead to a lack of public faith in the judiciary. And would be hugely damaging tiddly Karam permission process moving forward. Some of the allegations levied against judge cabin illustrate why the presumption of innocence is so important. I am thinking impact not at the allegations raised by her pests four, but of the allegation that when he was a teenager judge cabinet drugged, multiple girls and use their weakened state to basilica gang rate. This land dish allegation was put forth without any credible supporting evidence and simply parroted public statements about others. That's such an allegation can find his way into the supreme court confirmation process is a stark reminder about why the presumption of innocence is so ingrained in our American consciousness. Mr president. I listened carefully. To Christine blah's seaports testimony before the judiciary committee..
