I want to welcome you back to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I know this return trip. It's been a long time and planning on you're here. Finally, this will be the Judiciary Committee's first hearing of the 117th Congress. Before I turned to my opening remarks. I'd like to just take a few minutes to make some Acknowledgments. I want to welcome my friend, Senator Chuck Grassley as the committee's ranking member. When I first came on the Senate Judiciary Committee 24 years ago, I was the ranking member on subcommittee with you, and we dealt with the issue of bankruptcy. Now Illinois and Iowa sit next to each other. And so did Urban Grassley. We have our differences. But Senator Grassley and I have worked together on important legislation over the years, most recently on criminal justice and sensing reform. I look forward to continuing that work in this Congress. I want to recognize the outgoing chair and ranking member Senator Lindsey Graham, who will join us remotely this morning, and Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Graham, as is true of Senator Grassley. Well, we don't always agree, has always been a welcome partner on many issues. Including one of the most challenging issues, immigration, Senator Feinstein. I want to come in for leading the committee Democrats with Grace and resolved over the past four years. I know she will continue to be an important voice on this committee on a host of issues, including in her new capacity as the chair of the Human Rights and Laws subcommittee, which I was proud to charity and past Congresses. I also want to welcome our new committee members who either be here in person. I see one in person and one probably remote senators Padilla And also on the Democratic side, Senator Cotton on the Republican side. I look forward to working with each of you. There's some historic first in the Judiciary Committee this year, Senator Padilla, our new senator from California, will be chairing the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship. Border safety. I'm honored that he's the first Latino senator to chair that subcommittee, and we look forward to his leadership. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey will chair the subcommittee on criminal justice and counter terrorism. He's the first Black senator to chair a judiciary subcommittee. And we could not imagine a better choice at the helm of this particular subcommittee to all of our other members who are returning to serve on the committee. Welcome back. I want to thank all the committee members for agreeing to hold this committee hearing and vote on Judge Garland's nomination. It is a great honor to serve on this committee. The Senate established the Judiciary Committee by resolution on December 10th 18 16, making it among the very first standing committees of the Senate. This committee has seen many consequential debates and approved many important nominations and landmark legislation in the committee's history. There has only been one prior Illinois senator to serve his chair Judge Garland Lyman. Trumbull, who led the committee from 18 61 to 18 72, and during his term of service was a Democrat, a Republican, a radical Republican and a Democrat. Again. He was the most bipartisan senator, you could imagine His tenure was also distinguished by passage. Of historic legislation, the 13th 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The Freedman's bureau acts of 18 65 and 18 66 Civil Rights Act of 18 66. The last of these was introduced by Trumbull ultimately became the nation's first civil rights law. As chair, Trumbull saw a nation torn apart by original sin slavery and widespread violence and injustice that continued even after the 13th amendments. Passage is African Americans throughout the nation face race. System. Our nation is still dealing with the consequences of these injustices. People of color face systemic racism, and we're still working to rid this nation of the horrific legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. This committee could make a difference. We have the jurisdiction and the opportunity to do it through legislation, oversight and nominations, including this nomination of Merrick Garland to service our nation's next attorney general. There have been few moments in history where the role of attorney general and the occupant of That post It mattered more Judge Garland should you be confirmed, and I have every confidence you will be. You'll oversee a Justice Department at an existential moment. After four tumultuous years of intrigue, controversy and brute political force, the future of the department is clearly in the hands of the next attorney general Under attorney general Sessions and successor Bill Bar. The Justice Department literally became an arm of the White House committed to advancing the interest. The President Trump his family and his political allies. It came as little surprise then that the U. S Department of Justice became the Trump Department of Justice General Bar stated clearly that he believed the attorney general was the president's lawyer, not the nations. And what were the results too many in the department's senior roles cast aside the rules law trump appointees in the apartment sidelined career public servants from Lyon attorneys, two FBI agents Limited their roles disregarded their nonpartisan input override, overriding their professional judgment and falsely accusing them of being members of the

She just announced to the age of 87 the other day that she's going to run for another six year term as Senator, But she's not up this year or next year. She's up in 2024 for reelection. And then when she takes office next time it was sworn in next time if she wants, and she will shall be 90 and you know, that's okay. God bless you. God bless her heart, as they say.

Former President William McKinley, James Garfield, James Monroe, Herbert Hoover Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere author Robert Louis Stevenson. These will all be eliminated, says the San Francisco Chronicle, because they are flipping insane because they're mentally broken because they may have been abused as Children are, so I don't know what it is with the left, but they are. They're they're really brain damaged. And so you think I'm making this up even in elementary school, named for a current U. S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat will be changed over allegations that she replaced a damage Confederate flag outside of City Hall when she was the city's mayor in 1986. According to courthouse news. She didn't replace the flag after was pulled down a second time. But that doesn't matter because she committed a faux pas many decades ago. And with that faux pas she will be she will be crushed. Might it eliminated from history? If there were statues of her, they'd have to tear them down. This is this is today's Democratic Party. And it's San Francisco is going national and with in terms of the mentality of the left on the Democrat Party and Sun, But Joe Biden, who is he's here to help, you know. He's he just fixed racism yesterday, because you know no. Because, well, you know, the racial jungle. You know, If there was school named for Joe Biden, you'd have to tear it down there a school name? I bet they're probably I think of the University of Delaware. He's funneled some money. Federal tax dollars there and his wife went to school there. There must be something named after him there. It should be eliminated. It should be. I think destroyed it should be probably turned down on the earth salted because lunch bucket. Joe is such a such an obvious racist. Now, let's let's go because they're going to fix it. They announced yesterday they're going to fix racism. And just the guy to do it is that is the racist. Joe Biden Now I mean, again, the 1993 crime bill. He was the author of that Credibility, bragged about it and asked years later whether he was proud of that crime bill. He The other is that Joseph R. Biden Jr School of Public Policy and Administration. That's gotta go his. He's much worse than find studies much worse than Garfield. And they just elected him and he's the guy with the crime bill that put black people in jail for doing the same drug that white people walked free for. That was him. That was Joe Biden. Well, one was rock and one was powdered one was Almost worse, and one was better. And he was asked. Are you proud of that? Proud of that crime bill thing? And he said, Oh, yeah, sure. I'm real. I'm the author of that bill. I'm real. I'm real proud of that. That's great stuff. So And what else? He was just a horrible, terrible racist racial jungle wouldn't send his kids to those schools. Black people go there. You're kidding me. That's Joe Biden, Uh and he's the president and he's going to fix race. For the last 50 years. He hasn't eight years his vice president with eight years as were the Black president didn't but yesterday fix it. You know how with the stroke of a pen, that's how let's go to Joseph Robinette Biden junior From yesterday in the Oval Office at the White House with big signing ceremony and the whole thing was was quite quite embarrassing. Um And when he wrapped it up, there was there was a moment when the press the White House press Corps, the esteemed in August, White House press corps had an opportunity to shout questions at him. You may recall how ran did they were with President Trump at every opportunity. At every turn and yesterday. No, no such thing. None of that. I can tell you. They just they, Peter Doocy asked one question about his phone call with Putin. And he didn't answer. He gave a wiseguy answer. And the rest of the press giggled and didn't ask any questions because they're not really legitimate press. It's like the third world. It's like the Soviet Union there, the left. They're not the news business. They're not journalists. All right. So here's Joseph Robinette Biden junior the racist yesterday. Was going to solve the race problem in America because you know President Trump. They had sensitivity training imposed at the Pentagon and other federal agencies and the military and in federal agencies during Obama, where everybody had to go in, instead of getting I e d training and go in and get racial sensitivity, training and transgenders, sensitivity, training and stuff. Mm hmm. And President Trump said this is ridiculous Waste of time and crazy left wing agenda stuff, so we're going to get rid of that. Well, Joe Biden announced yesterday that that's coming back with a vengeance. Look in the weeks ahead. I'll be reaffirming the federal government's commitment to diversity, Equity and inclusion.

First of all that this is what they call an unseemly Hypocritical process based on the Republicans, actions dating back to merit Garland But Senator Dianne Feinstein she like so many of our colleagues framed this entire process as being about life or death for the affordable care act, really an attempt to fear monger as we are just now 22 days. Before the election. You can call it fearmongering talk about a reasonable warning but saying that's what this is all about. Cut six and filling. Judge Ginsberg See, the stakes are extraordinarily high for the American people, both in the short term and for decades to come. Most importantly, healthcare coverage for millions of Americans is at stake with this nomination. So over the course of these hearings, my colleagues and I will focus on that subject. And boy, did they ever let me give you one more example. This is Senator Sheldon Whitehouse cut 10, this Supreme Court nominee has signaled in the judicial equivalent of all caps. She believes the affordable care act must go and What the president President Protecting the doesn't matter. Senator Whitehouse in others making the case that because this this case is coming up, literally a week after the election Is when the Supreme started take it up that that will be the end of the now There's a lot of legal experts that don't think that's the case that it's not a foregone conclusion because the question at hand is we know that the legislative branch killed the individual mandate. The question before the Koreas with that very critical part of the statute dead. Does that mean that the entire statute is dead or can it move on, albeit in a crippled form? That's what the Supreme Court in general is going to be decided one week after the election, and they believe that a judge any Cockney Barrett is Justice Amy Cockney Barrett. It will put that into jeopardy. Jonathan Turley, the Layla, your law professor was on Fox, and he said something very interesting. If you look at recent decisions about what they call severability Both Justice Cavanaugh and Justice, Roberts have said. In those instances, you have to separate those issues that a part of the law that dies does not mean the whole law dyes. And so he was saying that it's by no means that the Democrats are overstating The vulnerability of the affordable care act. I'm wondering if you process it that way, especially if you have pre existing conditions And we know the president has not yet articulated and doesn't apparently intend to what the replacement to Obamacare will be. Let's get back to our calls Robert in Sterling Heights as we look at this very unusual process. Hello, Robert. Oh, Hello, guy do what would I want to do if I'm gonna bring it casing from the court? I care about what the law is not who the judge is okay, and we had a lot of judges, especially here in Michigan, Cynthia Stevens, who overturned election law. With election not far off. That's not what I want. And another thing is, I think with Democrats have done, they kind of poll tested and focus grouped not to attack around a religion, even though they have in the past. Which he is. She's honestly looks like she's just a good judge well qualified as a matter of fact, in Republicans and many Republicans vote for Kagan and Sotomayor. They didn't make it political, and that was very recently. What they're doing is Cavanaugh courses. They're going along party lines. They know she's qualified. And the Constitution doesn't say President shall nominate. Replacement. It doesn't say he could. Doesn't say he should doesn't say he might want to see shall do it. Yeah, it's not may not in January. 20th 2021, You're correct when you said if the roles were reversed, the absolutely would push somebody through and Joe Biden did not tell us who is justices would be. He's given us the same port. He's saying elect me Then you'll find out my judge. Nominations will be just like Obama care. We have to pass the law, so we find out what's in it. Would you buy a car that way? Would you say I'll give you that? You know 30 $40,000 per car, even though I don't know what it is. Well, and he also won't tell us if he's going to pack the written that such a key constitutional argument in just moments ago when asked about it yet again, he got chip either way, we know joke and get And said, ah, that voters don't have a right to know. When? When asked Don't voters have a right to know? He said. No, they don't well on something so fundamental. I would tell you the focus groups that I've seen coming out of these debates. The one thing they seem to agree on. Is that they want the Democratic ticket to answer that question. As always, Thanks for your call Robert Bob is in Roseville. Oh, excuse me. I didn't see that. Bob has already dropped. Let's go Larry in Rochester Hills with some thoughts on this. Hi, Larry. Yeah, I think what they're going to well let for the Supreme Court justice, whether I like it, Alright, Don't it's constitutional. What I want to know is work over this court.

"Not for the judicial branch and for that name medium and we may need an amendment but the judicial branch this is possible. You know, we had a justice of the Supreme Court who served for several years after being diagnosed with permanent lunacy. He was a lunatic, a diagnosis lunatics. Totally and confident and continue to serve on the Supreme Court. And, of course, nobody took seriously his votes and back in the day, most votes of the Supreme Court were unanimous. There were very few dissenting opinions. Through most of the 19th century and the Senate opinions became prominent, really in the 20 0 as we take a call BLEEP. Please tell us the name of the lunatic. I remember looking long ago that it doesn't long ago that it doesn't matter. 18 32 parents That probably was in the headlines recently. Okay, Here's a call from Gil who listens to us online in Manila, the Philippines. Hello, Gil. They're so good evening, General Professor Dershowitz. I just I just want to say that every time I talk to you on Jim show, I feel like I just passed a key and I did really good. We'll give you an honorary degree if you keep listening to this wonderful show. You get the honorary degree you could open then you're a graduate of the Jim Bohannon School. Exactly. And at least three credit hours guilt. So there you go. Good. Okay, well, but the comments that I had is this With Trump nominating a woman. The dynamic of the Been Judiciary Committee are going to change. Uh, there was a family name that became a verb and that was more. Yeah, uh, Some years ago, and that process was done just recently, the Mr Cavanaugh, But I don't believe they're going to be able to do that to a woman. Interesting thought for those just adjusted to clarify for everybody has not paid attention recently, Of course, Robert Bork was a presidential nominee for the Supreme Court, who had a long paper trail and it was used to slap him across the face severely in his case being Bork worked, and he was denied a seat. But go ahead, Alan. But, you know, actually, Judge Barrett was. Barry did not fork but ferreted by Senator Dianne Feinstein, who are generally like, but she went over the line. When she is, um Barretts of faith as dogma on DH. She made some nasty comments about essentially per Catholicism's and That was wrong. The Constitution says no religious special ever be required for any office under the United States, and you just can't refused to vote for somebody because you don't like their religion. You can vote against somebody because you believe that they will use their religion the way John Kennedy said he would not in the way evidence. Julia said he would not If you believe that their religion will dominate their traditional thinking. That's a relevant issue, but what they do on Sunday how they practice their faith, how they bring up their Children. How many Children they have the fact that you wouldn't have an abortion when her fetus was diagnosed with down syndrome. Those are not things that you're allowed a raise in a confirmation hearing or even think about we can't stop justices. On senators from thinking about things, but I was very, very disappointed with the hand Feinstein for raising that issue. Of course, they make T shirts out of it and There. It was very proud of her face and she should be. And so I think we're going to see some questions raised with her about her. Her religion and the church he belongs to. I hope not. I hope that we get only into the judicial philosophy and keep it keep it at a very high level.

"Remember that that was Senator Dianne Feinstein with Amy Cockney Barrett during her confirmation as a judge on the U. S Circuit Court of the US Court of Appeals for the seventh Circuit 2017. You had her Catholic faith being questioned, which In which the author claimed that a group that Amy couldn't bear and her husband belong to was the inspiration for the Handmaid's tale. Was founded in South Bend, Indiana. In 1971 teaches that men have authority over their wives insert gasp ear members were a lifelong oath of loyalty to one another and are expected to donate at least 5% of their earnings to the group. Newsweek has since changed the headline to quote how charismatic Catholic groups like Amy Cockney barrettes. People of Praise inspired the Handmaid's tale. Now the reason they did. That is because Atwood never specified which group was the inspiration for her book. Or maybe there was no group that was the inspiration for her book. Maybe just came from her imagination. You know, writers are often want to do when they write stories, write fiction stories, especially it's from their imagination. Among somebody of faith. So the smear against Amy Kuney. Barrett has already begun and Catholicism's general, which has been going on for I thought, we I thought we got over that. We saw the whole Catholicism's problem with, you know, a Democrat who ran for president and one and is revered by everyone. John Kennedy Jr. I thought we ended with that, but apparently not its back. But you know, 162 Democrats voted against including anti Semitism in the equality and I think in integrity of act that Large large Jewish population in that area as well. So you would think that Chuck Schumer would be tuned into both of those groups because he represents both of those groups. Here's Chuck Schumer talking about Amy Cockney Baron. Someone of that philosophy does not belong in the court. Now you could. You could say that what he's saying there is like, well, you know, because she's against abortion and because she holds more conservative views that she's out of the mainstream. You know on this is again. This is about abortion, though You heard it a couple times her views on abortion or not out of the mainstream at all. What Yeah, I like Megan McCain. I think she's added something to the view. By the way, she added viewers to the view, 30% increase in ratings after she showed up. That's the reason that's the reason they put up with her because she's bringing in the cash because, she says, things that viewers agree with. This is definitely one of those things. The reason by the way that she has a bias for Joe Biden is for personal relationship with Joe Biden did transcends politics. It's Biden and her father were very close. So therefore she likes Biden doesn't like Trump, because guess who Trump attacked her dad kind of makes sense. But And I also think its not just Christians and Catholics who will respond to this. I think that there are people who believe that you have. I may disagree with your religion. But I believe you have the right to practice your religion, right? I'm not Jewish. But I absolutely believe that you should have the right to worship freely. I am not Muslim, but I believe that they should have the right to worship freely as well.

House, Senate pass bills to study the number of cancers striking military pilots
"PASSES BILLS TO STUDY MILITARY PILOT CANCERS FROM mcclatchy Washington bureau little bit late on that. I did I was GONNA say anything but okay. The Department of Defense would be required to identify how many of the current or former aviators have been diagnosed with cancer in in bills passed by the House and Senate this week a study long sought by military pilots who have questioned why there are so many serious illnesses in their community. The legislation was included in both chambers versions of the seven hundred and forty billion fiscal year twenty, twenty, one national defense authorization. Act following a series of stories by mcclatchy on the alarming clusters of cancer among current or former military aviators. I'm one of those including four commanding officers at a Premier Navy weapons testing base in California who have died of cancer since two thousand fifteen. Oh let me clarify I'm not one of those that has been diagnosed with cancer but I am a former military aviator. Two versions of the twenty one, twenty, one spending bill will now go to house and Senate negotiators to iron out differences before being sent to President Donald Trump to be signed into law. Betty semen the wife of one of the four commanding officers at Naval Air Weapons Station China. Lake. died of cancer. Welcome to the important milestone. She says since loving since losing I'm sure she loved him too since losing my husband I have met too many other families on the same unwanted journey. We all share a universal prayer that no other family will have to go through a similar loss today brings us one step closer to that realization Miss Seaman said in an e mail to mcclatchy but that's a great name. Her husband's name was a commander Semen S. e. a. m. a. n., and he is a naval officer. Wow that was he was in the if he was in Canada heath now be a sailor. So his last name. Is they're getting rid, of semen. Because of the obvious connotations. Changing the position to say okay. Let's see. Senator Dianne Feinstein from California introduced the military aviators. Cancer Incidence Study Act after mcclatchy reported that military aviators may be at a higher risk of developing certain cancers. Let's see. There was a little bit of information here. The database would include every service member since nineteen sixty one who served in an aviator role. The legislation defines aviators, members of the aircrew such as pilots and Napa who they included navigators in their two. Members of the grand create usually asleep on me. I did that on purpose because we have several navigators listen to the show. Let's see. WHO SHOULD WE? I'm offended at airline pilot guy dot com has the email address. And members of the ground crew who worked on the aircraft pilots who have been lobbying for the legislation wanted to ensure that ground crew such as enlisted personnel who worked to launch jets aircraft carriers were included. Because, they were exposed to many of the same radar emissions or fuels. The bill requires a database to be completed within a year. So I guess they're assuming that. The radar emissions and fuel and the jets have something to do with this. With these cancers. Anyway. So that's good. That they're doing this and I guess that. I will be contacted at some point. To probably. Yeah to fill out some kind of survey regarding my health,

Why unlocking the Pensacola shooter's iPhones would unleash a privacy nightmare for iPhone owners
"An interesting story that started at the beginning of the week the fight for privacy is under way again between apple and the FBI after December six shooting at a naval base in Pensacola Florida was deemed an act of terrorism Attorney General bill Barr said that apple wasn't doing enough to help unlock the shooters two phones apple maintains that breaking encryption on one phone could endanger the privacy of all iPhone users so they refused to help although they did release a lot of other data to the FBI for more on this story we spoke to Rosie perper global reporter for business insider so the case from San Bernardino at that happened in twenty fifteen so essentially what happened was apple created an update to its iOS software and basically there were certain data on the phone that was no longer able to be accessed by law enforcement and so you need a passcode in order to get certain things like text messages and photos that's obviously of importance to law enforcement when they're dealing with a shooting case or a terrorism case and so after St Bernard you know they were able to get a hold of the shooters iPhone but unfortunately they couldn't access the data that they were looking for because it was under passcode encryption so at first they tried to crack it themselves but the NSA wasn't able to and so they went directly to apple ask them for help but apple said that creating any sort of hacking software would essentially put the privacy and security of all of its customers at risk because once you have that software available what is that software is used for in the future could potentially put more of their customers at risk an apple really valued his privacy and user privacy of its customers so it kind of refused to do that for the FBI which kind of set this whole feud between the FBI and apple in motion yeah and at the time the FBI sued apple but while all that was happening the FBI was able to contract with a third party to unlock the iPhone there I think it later on senator Dianne Feinstein from California said that the government paid nine hundred thousand dollars to this third party to be able to unlock that phone and then they ended up dropping the lawsuit against apple so it's kind of like a stalemate the FBI got what they wanted so they don't have to proceed with this lawsuit so now we're kind of added again the Attorney General William Barr accuse apple of not really doing enough to help and there's two phones in question here now that they are trying to open up and again the same argument for apple they said we can't do this because if we create a back door this leaves it open to any bad actor to do this to other iPhones obviously in the years since December Dino shooting apple's been able to progress IT security software even further so apple basically said that it's providing the FBI with as much information as they can but there's just still certain information that says if it provides to the FBI that would set a precedent and I think apple standing really firm on this issue I think whether there's some earnestly behind it or whether or not it's apple trying to save face they're really standing firm about not compromising the security of its users so what's gonna happen is unclear at this point apple is in a really complicated spot right now because it's not just apple fighting against the department of justice over something like this they have to contend with a bunch of foreign governments I think Australia passed a law saying they can compel tech companies to undermine their data security India has something the U. K. has something so if apple does this for the department of justice for the FBI then they have to kind of do it for all these other countries or what's worse for a big company like apple that I don't think they want they would have to stop operating in these countries so it's just a really complicated spot and as you mentioned the privacy of their customers is really high on their list it just seems like they can't do this that's kind of the argument that a lot of these rights groups have mentioned in and now with the Pensacola shooting case the American civil liberties union they defended apple and they basically said that if apple was to create this sort of back door software other governments other authoritarian governments might be able to access similar software and what they would use that software for that would be of concern in the future so that's something that they're really defending is this idea that if this software is created at all who gets a hold it and what it's used for in the future it's just basically a slippery slope in apple hasn't closed off the F. B. I. completely they say they won't create this back door for the access to the I. phones but they are giving them a bunch of other stuff I you know I cloud data and some other stuff too right there is certain data that is if you've got your I. cloud set up to your iPhone it can get automatically updated and I can get a stored in the iCloud but that information according to the FBI just isn't enough and what they have there certain gaps of information that they don't have and so they really want to see who the Pensacola shooter was working with and whether he had ties to any sort of major terrorist groups that sort of information is hard to discern from just the information that they have but at the same time apple is cooperating an apple things that it's doing its part so we're back at clash between apple and the FBI in terms of getting access to the data that the FBI thinks it needs and there's a couple of other little complications I think in this case in the Pensacola case the shooter either shot one of the phones or try to damage the phones so there's a question of like you know why can't the FBI just go through another third party and they can create something to get into the phone but a lot of people suspect maybe there was too much physical damage on the phones and maybe that's why they need apples help on this so there's still a lot of questions in play and there's no actual lawsuit or anything happening this time just yet right no not at the moment the FBI is preparing for what it's going to do in the future but at this point they're looking at the same kind of scenario that they were put in back in twenty fifteen to twenty sixteen so it's unclear exactly what's gonna happen in the future no trumps last at apple recently and what's going to happen next I guess we'll kind of mirror what happened in December nineteen okay yes so we'll see Rosie perper global reporter business insider thank you very much for joining us thanks so much for having

What do you buy the whole coffers of of Rome almost busted by naturally? I'm so the next emperor that got up there. He built the Coliseum on top of Niro's little PlayStation.

The L ING stole all their. Well, you know, what both natural, and, you know, financial. And so it it also they talked about the Republic. As Roma's Republic for a while it only lasted around three hundred years. Right. So the interesting series. There's like eight different. What do you call things they go from like, Julius Caesar? Hannibal the Punic wars. Okay. You reporting out. I don't wanna go down the list of all the wars Rome's been through those no history. But what do you think of the idea that? Yeah, you were saying something about right Rome lasted like some three hundred sixty years. It took about what eighty six years for it to die toward the end. What do you think about the age of us two hundred and forty two years? It doesn't mean that we're gonna last that long. Does it? No. But but you there were some parallels. Well, I get you have to read between the lines about very Erie about how some of the politics in the scheming and stuff like that happen with the Senate with their, you know, their Caesar's since etc. It was just like, wait. I've seen this before. I mean, that's why I think we're not really Nazi Germany. No. Like, you're right. It's wrong. You know? And and just the whole thing of the Genesis of how each one of these emperors towards the last functioning resistant, it ended with constant team, and you know, the eastern part, but there were some interesting parallels. Not all but you have to watch the whole series. You know, it sounds like it'd be interesting. If you I want to get a crash course again in history and talk about the fall of the Roman empire and the Ottoman empire, and all these other empires at the time that we're fighting for that that that piece of glory. But here we are now, you know, we were we are still holding onto the idea that we are the the nation. In the I guess you'd say philosophy that needs to spread throughout the world. But yet the philosophies are divided. And as I said before there are a lot of people in America right now, variable syphilis that are saying things that you know, it's obvious that they just hate America. They hate it. It's not that you know. And then they take that hate, and they say, well, I just hate Donald Trump. Well, no, they hate America. They just hate it. They hate they've hated it for a long time.

And when I get from that is she wants to propose reproductive laws. China. Right. It's what it sounds like. We can take it to the extreme and say that what she's doing. She's talking the way the old eugenicist talk through the jenex backers talked. Not having children because scientific consensus says certain people shouldn't breed. Hitler proposed. And of course, the United States adopted it early, you know, we we basically had early eugenics programs. Hitler said. Wow. We liked eugenics programs.

This is I mean turbulent time of the year is upon us. Now, I mean, what February we rip the calendar off March happens we go about fifteen days and right smack dab in the middle of the ides of March. The ides of March. Right. I talked about the ides of March window all the time. The other night. I mentioned something about the ides of March and how the window between March fifteenth. And may I as often minute window of tumultuous change and bloodshed and it it's easy to make predictions. We're going to see a bit of turbulence in this window because it seems those who wish to stabilize the time to they're plotting and scheming. This happens during the winter months they plot they scheme, they make plans, and then say, okay, the due date will be this date this date and this date. We'll give them a big surprise in October. Because that'll give him time. We have we have the first month's to the spring. And we have the first months in the fall would they do this stuff? Like clockwork, we have some really bad things go down and the first few months of spring starting on the fifteenth just before around the fifteenth thirteenth fifteenth and then through that time and. You know, the first of may. A lot of things are planned during that time a lot of war campaigns happened during that time a lot of terrorist acts happened during that time a lot of shootings. I mean, we've heard that Alexi rightly where the ides of March something that's delivered to Caesar don't go. Don't go Caesar because you're gonna end up dying. And he did he died in the Senate.

And it's the hostess Englishwoman, and he goes around the whole Benda trade-in about know battles as you know, happenings in roles. One of the things I found intriguing after Nero was disposed of he like, what do you like sacked a whole coffers of Rome almost busted by I'm so the next emperor that got up there. He built the Coliseum on top of Niro's little PlayStation. What's was it really was a big huge palace and every but it was financed by the sacking of Jerusalem, ABC seventy and well did this many times other countries? He just went in there and the L ING stole all their. Well, you know, what both natural, and, you know, financial. And so it it also they talked about the Republic as a Roman Republic for a while it only lasted around three hundred years, right? So it's interesting series. There's like eight different. What do you call things they go from like, Julius Caesar? Hannibal the Punic wars. So okay, you were pointing out. You know, I don't want to go down the list of all the wars Rome's been through. We know those no history. But what do you think it'd be idea that? Yeah, you were saying something about right Rome lasted like some three hundred sixty years. It took about what eighty six years for it to die at toward the end. What do you think about the the the age of us two hundred and forty two years? It doesn't mean that we're gonna last that long does it. But but you'll there were parallels. Well, I guess you have to read between the lines about. I mean, it was very Erie about how some of the the politics and the scheming and stuff like that happen with the Senate with their, you know, their Caesar's since etc. It was just like, wait.

And and just the whole thing of the Genesis of how each one of these emperors towards the last you were functioning. And they're resistant it ended with Constantine, and you know, the eastern part, but there were some interesting parallels, not all of it. But there was you have to watch the whole series. You know, it sounds like it'd be interesting. If you know if I want to get a crash course, again the history and talk about the fall of the Roman empire, and that you know, the the Ottoman empire. And all these other buyers at the time that we're fighting for that that that piece of glory. But here we are. Now, we were and we are still holding onto the idea that we are the the nation in the in the I guess you say philosophy that needs to spread throughout the world.

"I think everyone expected you to retire soon. I mean, you're eighty. Yeah, you're right. I was going to retire Clinton was gonna win. I was going straight to the Dominican Republic. Even the last time. I was there. They thought I was Zeke of mosquito little fun with RV G. And that was Kate. Mckinnon SNL a couple of years ago. I guess my reason for bringing us up as we we have a rather peculiar fascination almost a cult like celebrity appreciation of supreme court justices. I don't think that's healthy. Now, I get why people pay attention supreme court. Those reasons are important. Traditional values case law. Precedents all the things that swirl around the supreme court really taking at the highest level. The big decisions of our of our country. And that final review and really setting the law. So that we can move forward. Unfortunately, never moved forward. Right. We're always going backwards at least most people, whether it's abortion, civil rights issues. They tend to Stu and one I think one way to look at the supreme court from from a political perspective is is our chance are being whatever party you identify yourself as as influencing the future. I'm not going to deny what happens liberal presidents. They import liberal judges, generally. Although there are surprises. Sometimes judges don't work out. I'm John Roberts. For example. Don't always work out the way, you think especially talking about specific cases. But for RPG with better Ginsburg. This is a a story that is just beyond. A cult or appreciation. If you're a fan of hers for what she's done is a supreme court Justice. And I've said this before. For women's rights as a conservative. I still give her kudos for the work. She she's done pretty impressive resume. But now this woman is in this position with Bater Ginsburg. Having to survive. In in the liberals audience's mind so that president Donald J Trump won't appoint another conservative Justice. So it's almost taken on epic proportions of interest that really I don't wanna see my judges have that wrapped around and I point to the cabinet case. That entire process. Didn't help anything in this country. Didn't help our environment of our culture of discourse was horrendous was a display of the worst of our society on both sides. You know, I'm still waiting for Senator Dianne Feinstein who outed the woman who came forward, and basically said that judge cabinet had assaulted her many many years ago. Christine Blasi Ford. She outed her. She asked for confidentiality her office or someone interoffice out at her. Where's that investigation? Where does that stand? Crickets, nothing. And of course, the the hearing itself. And God forbid something happens to Ruth, Bader Ginsburg, just a general human being perspective. Not a political perspective. What do you think that next confirmation process is going to be like anybody thinks it's going to be better calmer? More rational. Probably not likely. So as we see this go forward. Let's tamp the brakes on some of the the cult like status of this. And maybe we don't need our supreme court justices to be superheroes. Maybe we just need them to be rational thoughtful smart professional scholarly, people the chips fall where they may just my thoughts on RV g and the the cut like celebrity obsession with what she stands for more of the show next radio.

It is seven thirty seven. We'll have more from Randi in the in the weeks ahead. He always has some relevant topics. And we appreciate him giving us some of his time to give us a heads up. And apparently, this is one he in some of the people with have already gotten in the mail and he suspects if he's getting it than most likely folks out in radio land, probably gotten quite a bit of it as well coming up in a few moments. We're we're going to have a chat with Donald Mozelle. And we're gonna talk about William Barr who is up for attorney general. He's been in the hearings this week. And we've got some we've got some of William bar in his own words right now. A matter of fact, he's facing facing some questioning. From the Senate Judiciary committee on Tuesday. Democrats are steering questioning toward bars opinions on the authority of special counsel, Robert Muller, and the presidential authority which could possibly relate to the Russian investigation Senator Dianne Feinstein questioned bar about how he plans to maintain the oxymoron integrity of the Muller investigation. The scope of the special counsel's investigation is set by his his charter and by the regulations, and I will ensure that those are maintained will you commit to providing this molar with resources funds and time needed to complete his investigation. Yes, will you commit to ensuring special counsel Muller is not terminated without good cause consistent with department regulations absolutely bar had previously worked with Robert Muller when he served as a Torney general in the George H W Bush administration if confirmed bar would oversee the Muller investigation, we've got more from William bar in. In his own words as well. In this continues with his discussion with California Democrat Dianne Feinstein special counsel Muller makes any request. For instance, instance, about the scope of his investigation or resources for his investigation will you commit to notifying congress. If you deny that request. I think the regulations require notification of congress if there's a disagreement William bar, of course, going through the Senate Judiciary committee, he has more with Feinstein. I am going to make as much information available as I can consistent with the rules and regulations that are part of the special counsel regulations. Will you commit to making any report on the obstruction of Justice public? That's the same answer. And then the questions turned to journalism and and Amy klobuchar of Minnesota as bar if Justice. Department will jail journalists for doing their jobs that seems like a dumb loaded question. But here he gave it a shot. I can conceive of of situations where? As a as a last resort. And and where a news organization has run through a red flag or something like that knows that they're putting out stuff that will hurt the country. There might be there could be a situation where where someone would be held in contempt. Now, if he's confirmed this would be bars second stint as attorney general he served in that role ninety one to ninety three under president, George H W Bush and remember we had Senator Lamar Alexander on yesterday who served around the same time as far as well and spoke very highly of him. But if this is a guy that will allow Muller to do his thing does that sound like a president who would put up a man who would agree to do that. Does that sound like a man that's hiding something? I don't think so doesn't doesn't sound. It doesn't that doesn't pass the sniff test to me. Let's talk about Russia and China in regards to William bar. He is he was asked by Republican Senator Ben Sasse if he thought Russian President, Vladimir Putin was a friend or a foe. And what did he think Putin's objectives were toward the US bar reply that he thought China was a bigger rival to the US then Russia, I think the primary rival of the United States is China. I think you know, Russia is half the size. It was when we were facing them at the peak of the Cold War economy is long term prognosis is nowhere near China's. I also feel that. Part of what Russia's up to is trying to hold onto Ukraine in Russia in their orbit. But I'm I'm concerned that the fixation on Russia, not obscure the danger from China. Coming up. We'll talk with political analyst Donald Mozelle about William bar, his take.

For instance, here's Senator Dianne Feinstein from California. She was against the harsh restrictions of property seven. But at the same time she wanted to crack down on a legal immigration and she called for it on the Senate floor. You're simply no time to lose too. Many people are still able to illegally cross our borders and too few states most notably California carry the burden of having to support educate and often incarcerate the hundreds of thousands who entered this country illegally each year.
