"Is there any doubt about that? I don't think there's any doubt about the fact I think I saw him do it in a couple of occasions where jealous around New York he was working with Chris Heinz, who was the Son of the deceased senator from Pennsylvania. And they had all these, uh, situations they were getting into it. You know, I met them around the time because I was coming out of office and looking for things to do myself. But the point But the point is, the real connection is to what extent Senator Joe Biden got into this and I think that he was cleared by his colleagues. That's pretty much it. Yeah. I mean, you can talk about this and you can try and really these offspring of elected officials. I guess you're in a tough situation because There. They've got that label on them, and they try to find these ways to make themselves relevant. And usually all it does is get their parents in trouble. They cover. Almost. We only have ah, less than a minute left. But it just seems to me that the Republicans were saying Wow! Biggest scandal since Watergate that the Obama was spying on the campaign with that story just fizzled this week and went away and all of a sudden magically in its place comes rooted to the rescue with his emails being sent to the post. It just seems suspicious to me. It's very suspicious and a Zay said it actually starts to make me think that they're more worried than I thought to go to this extreme. When I think that honestly, this is a still a very close race. And it's and it's winnable for either side and obviously, But Biden had a good month in October, but I wouldn't count the president out and that's why I don't think I if I were them. I wouldn't, um, opposite. Dated at all with all of these, you know, every day. It's a new thing Tomorrow will be you know, Biden is actually a friend of Putin. Not trump. You know that kind of thing. Governor Governor Paterson. Biden had a good month because he didn't expire. Alright. That's qualifies as a good mom from Joe Patton. Alright, well, that's true, but what the president said about people in the nursing home? He better hope that they expired, but I think they've changed their appealing from him from four years ago.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died

"Bader Ginsburg was a force to be reckoned with. All I asked about brethren. They said. They take their feet off our necks, barely 5 FT. Tall but a liberal giant, only the second female justice named on the Supreme Court serving there for more than a quarter century. Her path to the highest court in the land was not easy. As one of the few women at Harvard Law School she faced discrimination. After graduating from Colombia in the fifties, her tenaciousness in the classroom highlighted in the Oscar nominated documentary on Ginsberg titled RBG produced by journalists Julie Cohen and Betsy West. She was one of nine women in a class of 500. She was tied for first in her class. And the Big New York City law firms just weren't hiring women, not a law firm in the entire city of New York. Did for my employment charging forward, she became a beloved law professor rockers and worked as a lawyer for the O U, She mapped out a legal strategy to file lawsuits against gender bias in employment, housing and government benefits. Man and women are persons of equal dignity and they should count. Equally before the law, You won't settle for putting Susan B. Anthony on the new dollars When they would say things like this. Haven't you respond? Well, never in anger, Mother told that's that would have been self defeating. Always as an opportunity. Teach. I didn't see myself was kind of a kindergarten teacher in those days because the judges Didn't think so. Sex discrimination existed. One of the things that tried to plant in their minds was Think about how you would like the world to be for your daughters and granddaughters. She won five landmark cases, which she argued on behalf of women in front of an all male bench long before she sat on it. Ginsberg went on to serve as an appeals court judge in the nation's capital until that life changing nomination by President Bill Clinton in 1993. I am proud to nominate for associate justice of the Supreme Court. Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg. That announcement may never have happened had it not been for the intense lobbying effort by a staunch feminist, her husband, Marty Ginsburg, and at her confirmation hearing chaired by then Senator Joe Biden, the nominee did not shy away from her feminism spotlighting contentious topics like abortion rights. This is Something central to a woman's. Life to her dignity. It's a decision that she must make

"I agree with Bernie on the cause, but so even the way the problems. But driving the conversation is not the same as winning the argument back to hand-raising. There was another raise your hands question where all ten people on stage race their hands. Raise your hand gover-, if your government plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants. So this is one of those moments where you're like, wow. The Democratic Center of gravity has shifted a very long way in a not too long period of time, which last night, I think that was the key storyline. Right. I think tonight the politics of things, and how candidate interact with each other and frame, things was more of the top story, but over the course of the two nights. Yeah. Like that is the big theme. And I think that if you are with the Trump campaign, or with various super Pac spending a lot of money on this. You got a lot of Terio for ads that you're going to be airing eight or nine months from now over the last two nights, especially that image of everyone's hands raise seems like a great flyer to me if I'm trying to talk a lot about immigration, and big government and open borders. You know, the types of attacks that you've been hearing nonstop from the president. And the Trump message is, basically, like and has been all along. We need to focus on Americans look and he. Is going to be able to say look at those ten people on that stay to raise their hands. They want to help people who aren't American. Let's move onto the other big theme of this night, which was a battle of the generations, and it started with congressman Eric swallow, I was six years old when a presidential candidate came to the California, Democratic convention, and said, it's time to pass the torch to a new generation of Americans back candidate was then Senator Joe Biden, Joe Biden, was right, when he said it was time to pass torch to a new generation of Americans thirty two years ago still. I'm still hold on to that torch. I think there was actually one about investment. Yes. I do too. That was kind of a stunt. The generational theme was expressed in a couple of different ways. There was the swale well, kind of planned line to over and over and over and over again and the audience was laughing, then there was the Kamala Harris exchange which we've discussed a lot, but that was a generational challenge. Because in the Democratic Party part of the generational Gulf is about race in the Biden campaign's response to all of this, what you heard a bit from Biden, but more from when his people were at in here in force was all these candidates are talking about things they want to do. Joe Biden has done that in one way or another. But I think a lot of those candidates would say you did it ineffectively not as holy as we would like to see this actually went from this thing about the torch to like a full on everyone on stage being like I'm older, I'm younger, I'd like to tie to win Joel. Unions stage problem. We owe to consider you generate. Joe's generation. I'm all for a lot of jokes respond. The issue. Please. Hey guys, you know what America does not want to witness a food fight? They wanna know how we're going to put food on their table. Was also planned, but she delivered it at the right moment. She really came prepared. But, you know, I think that the generational problem for Biden is not going to be about what position he took on busing in the nineteen..

"Eight eight eight four eight four three three five zero one eight eight guide fifty call now time now for the Orion update message of the day, the debate soaring twenty democratic folks vying for the presidential nomination this week should be of interest to all voters at stake for the dams is whether the party will run to the far left or return to the somewhat moderate approach that was successful for Barack Obama, then Senator Obama was no radical bomb thrower back in two thousand seven when he burst onto the national political scene. No way you may remember he opposed gay marriage talk tough about stopping illegal immigration was against reparations for slavery. Mr Obama chose old hand Senator Joe Biden is running mate, when Biden had vocally called for seven hundred miles. The border fencing barriers that would stop anyone from crossing into the USA illegally. Now, Barack Obama's moderate approach worked, but he did govern as a social Justice warrior after he was elected. But Misra Bama, never espoused tearing down the entire American economic system today, the far left has seized control of the Democratic Party. No question about that using an intense internet smear machine and cheering media to promote socialism, open borders, free healthcare, not to mention late term abortion and payments to African Americans for the injustice of slavery. So we'll most of the democratic candidates, tell the nation that capitalism must go and society must be ruled by politically, correct dictums. It is a safe bet that Donald Trump hopes it happens. He believes, America will not vote for radical left change, even though. Oh, they voted for extreme change last time around by electing him. But not all change is the same. Donald Trump vowed to drain the swamp in Washington. Some of the democratic presidential contenders this time wanna create a new swap one that leans socialist with all of these candidates bloviating this week in Miami. It will be those who say the most extreme things that will get the most attention. Mr. Trump prove that when he went up against sixteen Republicans in the summer of two thousand fifteen and marginalize them with withering insults, and nicknames, like lion, Ted. And little Marco remember that will any of the Democrats used that playbook probably not, my guess, and it is that again, is that Senator Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden will make the most noise in the debate. Eight form miss Warren, in particular has to separate herself from the Bernie Sanders movement, her voters, and his voters are pretty much the same this Warren says she's a quote, democratic socialist sodas, Bernie Sanders, but Senator Warren will have to separate herself from Bernie Sanders, if she wants to win the democratic nomination with the others anything could happen. Joe Biden, we'll have to play defense. Everybody will be looking to take him down. So check in here later this week to see if I'm right? And that is the message for more, honest fact commentary, please go to Bill o'riley dot com. I believe you like it right back with something you might not know. I know you have heard of the AARP, you might even be a member, what you. Might not realize that AARP has shifted left and his AVI. Come a liberal lobbying group that spends your money lobbying against what you may believe in, thankfully, there is a conservative alternative organization that believes in the sanctity of our constitution and stands up for the values that make America great..

"Yes. One is for grownups the truth. We hold an American those who legally are crony. Logically. Exact which I which I include my, and then this one is superheroes are everywhere. They're actually I've read them both. And there's a lot of overlap both of them praise your mom a lot. Hey, your mom was born in India raised in India. And then she came here in one thousand nine hundred nineteen raised you and your sister is a single mother after the after you turn five or so and your parents split up you describe for the strongest person you've ever known you wrote very emotionally in one section of the grownup book about her being treated differently because she was an Indian American euro, quote, I have too many memories of my brilliant mother being treated as though she were dumb because of Iraq sent memories of her being followed around in department store with suspicion because surely Brown skinned woman, like her couldn't afford the dress or the blouse you had chosen your dad has also an immigrant from Jamaica. How does that affect how you how you govern? And especially when it comes to the immigration debate. But not exclusively. Well, I think all of us are any of us who have an immigrant background will tell you that there is so much more in common between our parents and our grandparents than what makes them different. My parents raised us with a commitment to making sure that we would be healthy that we would we help happy that we would be productive and that was their priority. And and they we I think we're very blessed frankly to have a childhood that was very nurturing and happy childhood. But when we talk about the immigration debate. I think there's no question that there are powerful forces, including this president that are attempting to vilify immigrants because they were born in another country, and suggests that they are there for any different in terms of their fundamental values or beliefs or priorities, and I think all of us as Americans should be insulted by that suggestion knowing that all of us. Are just a few generations if not one generation away from immigrants who arrived in this country with the same hopes and dreams that we each have for our children, you're in the second integrated class at Thousand Oaks elements school in Oakland, it happened because of busing you write about that Tang around that same time. Then Senator Joe Biden changed his position on bussing and became anti busing. He joined with Jesse Helms. I don't even know if you know this. And I'm just wondering as somebody who was in an integrated class because of busing was then Senator Biden wrong, as we know first of all that there was a need for Brown v board of education, thanks to Thurgood Marshall and Charles Hamilton, Houston and Constance Baker more among the hero among the heroes in my children's. But. There was a need for them to make clear that that anything that was about segregating children in in schools based on race was antithetical empathetical to our constitution, and the values and the priorities and the ideals of our country. So there's no question that blessing was the right thing to do as an attempt toward integrating the public schools of America. And I am sure that all good people support the idea that children should not be educated separately, and that we should have a society and leaders that want to integrate and bring all children together as equal two more questions. Okay. You're a leader of the metoo movement. You were the very vocal on the Senate Judiciary committee during cavenaugh. An unfortunate thing happened on your staff, which is that one of your top aides, you you had to resign if you weeks ago, Larry Wallis, and in fact, he's mentioned in the book at one point helping you run the attorney General Department or the department of Justice in cali-. And in fixing the problem of implicit bias as somebody who is a leader of the metoo movement. How did this happen, and you didn't know about it? And and what did you learn about it given that kind of struck close to home? Sure. First of all, it was a very painful experience to know that that something can happen in one's office of almost five thousand people granted. But that I didn't know about it that being said, I take full responsibility for anything that has happened in my office. I always do. And I was well the buck stops with me..

"Was calling other classmates saying she was not sure that I'd done this again. Again, just asking for fair process where I can be heard, and I can defend. Cavenaugh goes on the offense. You heard him there. And before that Senator Kirsten gillibrand from New York talking about believing the two women on their accusations about what Kavanagh did both at a high school party. And then when he was at Yale. So we continue down this path of the supreme court nomination. And how bumpy it's gotten the former congressman from Ohio Bob ney with talk media news joins us, Bob. I mean, there's now I think a third woman that supposedly is coming forward and cavenaugh today goes on FOX and says he never sexually assaulted anyone. And did a pretty lengthy interview. What do you make of that? Well, you know, Kate when you and I talked last week. I think we said that you know, he's going to be approved unless there's something we really don't know at the last minute. There is something we really don't know in the form of accusations. I think something that clouded this to be honest with you is is something that is a former member just really got to me. The fact is Senator Feinstein withheld this information for two months. Unlike Senator Joe Biden when he was vice president, of course, when he was head of the judiciary committee. They brought him information about Anita Hill's testimony. And then they said, well, it was to be anonymous and Biden's comment was something to the effect of I'm not gonna tie this committee hands. So know he set the stage early on which then gave some credibility to process. One thing that I think with some people as vice this is the fact that. Yeah. You know, at two months ago, Senator Feinstein should've turned this over to the chair judiciary committee Republican into the ranking member democrat said here this information is pretty sensitive serious lifetime appointment, and so I think a lot of people said, well, you know, it's last minute politics. So that bias is out there. But I think that has to be put aside of her error was she made. And then you have these two individuals out there at least these two right now. Maybe. Another one maybe another one and and laid out on the line. And then they're going to make a decision. The members of the Senate as to what is the truth or not. I have looking at this some doubts about the Ramirez case because she called around New York Times refused. The stories I understand this New Yorker took it and she was calling around. See I don't really remember him. Well, now six days later, she did I think that Ford testimony has a little bit more credibility because what Ramirez accuses Kevin love doing is. He did that in a public thing you and you were in that room in that venue and saw he would never forget that. I mean. Yeah, I think so yes point is is closed off. But the Ford story was very more private thing where it was he Mr. judge allegedly in her. So, you know, I think people will look more at what she says Thursay what he says this is so compete. I watched FOX interview I thought he looked believable. But then again, he had a mantra down which he kept. Going back to because you know, he is an attorney, and he had the same facts. He was pointing out as frankly, you know, a lawyer would in it. So I don't know this one's a real. This was a real barn burner. Yeah. I like, hey said that barn burner is a great description, and we really don't know which way it's going to go. I it seems as though he would, you know, they'll they'll take the votes, and he'll be approved. But what she says like you said, I think you're dead on right, Bob that the focus is absolutely more on her than him. And is she credible? And what specifically does she say that would get the Republicans who want to vote for him to say, you know, we got to back off this. And that's what is happening. Avenue not has a supposed third person coming and the the such a salacious about gang, rapes that he initiated the judge. I mean, it's just honestly if that happened to that level, I would just assumed him going to federal judgeship that would have been out there a long time ago. So I think the only the one case at least at this point in time. And I think a lot of people in DC are looking at the one case avenue. He doesn't have a lot of credibility. Stormy daniels. You know, the whole nine yards. But I think that the Ford how she handles herself and how he handles himself. And even if one would believe that that he's telling the truth, if Ford makes a credible presentation, there's this lingering doubt, and then people are going to have to vote and all it's going to take is you know, one or two Republicans to bald and this is done. Now, the White House would let that happen if they're gonna they're gonna pull the nomination. Then I assume probably like Amy Barrett would be a backup, and they would have to try that push that nomination fast. Yeah. Absolutely. And in fact, that was who you thought would be somebody that might be the one they would go to a you like that choice. But she was she was a choice actually the conservatives over Kavanagh's choice. I thought she was a good choice. Also, you know being female well seasoned hails yourself. Well, yeah. So I thought he would have done. Good done a pretty good job at the hearings. This other story rod Rosenstein, the whole thing with him and the twenty fifth amendment that he discussed that a last year. And it looked like he came to the White House on Monday, and he's going to get booted. What is going on there? Well, I know they canceled Kevin Spacey house of cards, but they've revived. Justice department, and Jeff Sessions and the president and rod Rosenstein, I mean this thing, you know, he's heading to the White House to resign. And or be fired. Right. And what's the end result of that whole deal? He's going to meet with the president on thirsty. I'm assuming that, you know, the president, and he are going to talk about the fact of you did he try to White House coup Anwar himself up pick cetera. You know, this whole Justice thing, we know that Jeff Sessions is going to be fired election night or the day after we know that the question is is rod Rosenstein going to be fired. And if he is the number one and the number two slots are going to be vacant which bleeds Kate to the question of who takes those two slots. The jackpot question the people that take those two slots because the new attorney general won't be recused those to control who the molar investigation. No, that's where everybody's minds going towards this. Trump wanna find out if roses seem did this or this Trump wants to see where Rosen seen stands in a sense of you know, is he a guy out to get the president or not especially if maybe he assumed a higher position or stay where he's at this whole thing today. White House just blew my mind. I was expecting like I said either the I quit or you're fired. And it didn't happen. Yeah. Crazy. All right. Bob, ney, always interesting. Thank you so much. Thank you. So that was interesting with Bob and Thursday is the day that the Cavanaugh Dr Ford showdown over what's going to happen with his future.

"I was a summer intern for Senator Joe Biden of all people during the board hearings talk about being a fly on the wall and at a very minor footnote role in helping do some research for the speech that Biden gave asserting the senate's right to consider the judicial philosophy of nominees, which until that point is use, Adam had been contested point and it was an important milestone. So Laurie, how important was that speech of of of Senator Biden and how transformative was the senate's decision to start considering judicial philosophy? Post Bork today. We often talked about the board hearing as if it was kind of the moment that changed everything, but it's not. Not really clear that that true of course, there there as we've talked about there were lots of rejected nominees before fork, and I think the he contested nece the hostility of the hearings and the process is really more cyclical than linear. There have always been hotly contested hearings. And there's always been periods when the the process has smooth has gone more smoothly. And I think what we see is that when you have a deeply divided partisan moment politically in the country as a whole, and or you have a seat bike Bork's sith which of course became the Kennedy seat which is now again, the seats open right now when when you have a seat that is going to change the the composition of the court in ways that people perceive as affecting outcomes, those hearings are going to be much more. More controversial. So it's more of an Ebina flow than a March toward hostility over time. That is a very provocative and interesting point. Adam Laurie suggests that Bork was not a transformation, but really had more to do with the consequences of the seat than anything that changed about the process. And indeed, judges Ginsburg Brier were confirmed with broad, bipartisan, majorities, and so forth. So do you agree or disagree with Laurie that it's more important which particular seat is being considered rather than a transformation in the post pork process yet? I think Laurie's right for both both reasons that she identified that so much turns both on the specific seat that's being filled and on the broader politics of the day. All these nominations happened in the context of their political moment. So when we think of Bork, people speak of Bork's nomination as being the start of something a modern era, maybe that's true only insofar as we're talking about a much more limited window of time over the ark of constitutional history has been. So many controversial nominees. Many of them rejected Bork isn't remarkable in that sense. But I do think that Bork's nomination was more hotly contested and contested in different terms than will definitely skill you before him even more so than than than than Rehnquist's before him. And that may have ushered in what we now think of as a as a modern moment. But Lori says it wasn't itself in the long run of things, a singular rejection. During trusting area of agreement. An interesting insight Laurie. Nevertheless, we seem now to be at a point where you can't get a nominee confirmed to the supreme court unless you hold both the White House and the Senate and dummies will not get any votes at all from the opposite party. For both the see the winter Justice Gorsuch and the cavenaugh seat as well or at least very, very few votes. Is that historically unprecedented or not? No, it's not historically unprecedented. It's it's we. We've had those periods of time in the past where non or presidents have held back nominations, they have moderated their nominations to accommodate a Senate held by the opposition party. So I think what we see is that there are the these, these confirmations are very embedded in their moments in time. And right now we're in a moment of in time where the court is seen as a prize to to be fought for and won. And that has in a moment of intense partisan disagreement in the country as a whole. That's led to a situation where senators are very presidents presidents don't have a lot of incentives to to nominate consent. Sus candidates right now because of the way that the greater political environment is functioning or dysfunctioning in the country. And I think this too will pass. While wonderful moment of optimism on this very optimistic podcast, Adam..

"Professor Epstein the year was nineteen ninety one. And then Senator Joe Biden was overseeing testimony of the appointed supreme court Justice that time Justice, Clarence Thomas and he held up probably I seem to your surprise your book takings private property and the power of eminent domain. And he Hector Justice top. Now Justice Thomas about that book and essentially said something to the effect of are you now or have you ever been a libertarian something to that extent during this back and forth? And I think this is an interesting episode. When you look at the history of these confirmation hearings, you had obviously the in my view and I assume your view as well shameful, Robert Bork, airings Justice, Thomas followed, and that's led to today were this is largely political theater looking back and reflecting. On this, especially given that Joe Biden himself, maybe a presidential candidate in twenty twenty. What do you make of what occurred there and what was so dangerous in that book that he held up? Well, first of all, I think one has to go back a little bit to the board curing because I got involved in that as well and Bork was quite different from Clarence Thomas in so far as every different point of his life. He always took somewhat of a different position, and there was a time when he was an antitrust efficiency expert. There was times when he had pronounced libertarian sentiment, and there were time when it became religious and social conservative. And so when he gets up to the supreme court, it's a real density crisis. Any has really heavy baggage on a couple of fronts. One was firing watchable Cox in nineteen seventy four with respect the Watergate where he was left holding the bag quite literally. And then there was his nineteen sixty three audible in August and the new Republic in which he attacked the public accommodation laws describing them as on surpassed ugliness. And I mean, those were very haunting for him to live down and to some extent I supported balk not wholeheartedly, but clearly against, I might add absolutely taunted objections from virtually everybody in the economy because I thought that he was a very smart guy and could be counting on to think his way through difficult problems. But he got slaughtered in the hearings to put it mildly. And I can still recall one time in Los Angeles when I tried to speak a word about Ren controllable subject and somebody in the audience looks up to me and says, professor Epstein you sound a bit like Robert book. Will you tell this group way you stand on Robin book? This was a consummate Ernie because balk with a pacifist on judicial intervention and I was in activist. But when you're talking about liberals to conservative, doesn't matter which particular side of the conservative distribution you're on, you're not us, and so therefore you're them and this and them is a blob innocent enemy and. So I tried to differentiate myself in game. We defend booked all to no avail. As you understand he was trounced. Thomas comes up different kind of case because he doesn't have much of a track record one way or another. I think he had just been appointed to the DC circuit, not mistaken, virtually no work there. He had taken some government positions and the initial situation was with respect to the debate over natural law. You might recall that Lawrence trimbe. No great. Constitutional scholar on these issues announce that Thomas was a natural law. Think in that was a perfect disqualification in my Ed that if you're going back to the history of natural, which is something I teach, it starts with Roman law works. Its way through media war essentially is the dominant mode of thought on virtually every issue through the time of the founding and only yields to some form of utilitarianism starting with David Hume in the amid part of the eighteenth century. So it's not as though it's shabby criteria. But since he had no idea. Idea of what it meant. It was to him just a code word for some insidious situation, and then the conversation got more concrete with Senator Biden. And what he did is he pointed to my takings book. Unfortunately, I might add the publisher did not have extra copies hand to sell after all this happened, although it did boosts things a little bit, and it was a kind of have you do ever believe of anything in this book and what Thomas answers on this question was, well, sir, you know that private property is actually shrine in the constitution and the fifth amendment..
