"Rent is off. Food is up. Everything. No, it really has been really a tough job for laughing. Meanwhile, people are suffering literally and you're going to see you're going to see the crisis coming. You're going to start to hear in the media soon. The people are going and it's sad. It's really kids are going hungry. Now keep in mind, we just sent 33 more $1 billion of Ukraine. We have homeless vets on the streets, right? We have one in 5 kids that have food insecurity in this country. And yet, Nancy Pelosi is gloating about how much ice cream she's got her. And going back to the COVID, we talked about the 1% contraction. 1% contraction and every time the U.S. pulls GDP 1% GDP. 7 million people starve globally, right? So think about how we reacted to COVID, did nothing to stop it. Nothing. All kinds of economic damage, right? Somewhere, by the way, and continues to the left went so far radical, right? I know we're coming up against our we don't have a time allotment here, but usually try to keep it 45 to 45 minutes from now. I want to play an oldie but a goodie because somewhere along the line, these people went so far nuts. This is Joe Biden a long time ago. Now for those of you who have the chance to watch this online, you should do that. Even if you go, even if you move forward to this specific spot because you'll hear Joe Biden decades ago talking about how to treat criminals. There's a huge drug problem back then still is obviously gotten worse. It's gotten way worse underneath him, but he was going to be tough on crime, right? While the video part of this shows his son lighting up as he's giving this real strong hardcore message. If you start lighting up a crack, piece of crack cocaine, no bigger than this quarter that I'm holding in my hand. We passed a law through the leadership of senator thurmond and myself and others. A law that says, you're caught with that, you go to jail for 5 years. You get no probation. You get nothing other than 5 years in jail. Judge doesn't have a choice. Under our forfeiture statutes. He still like you, can the government can take everything you own?.

How that advice workout for the democrats and seventy two. We lost despite my best efforts because the white man of the south didn't turn out the vote for too long the southern people.

What can i do for you. James i take it. You've heard the news about andrew. Johnson's candidacy no doubt.

He's about to receive from your new treasury secretary. Close the door. My friends tell me. Mr bristow is preparing to launch of investigation into the treasury. Your friends have not deceived.

I am tired of picking up the newspaper everyday only to read of yet another scandal involving my so called friends the credit mobilier the customhouse. The indian enough is enough james.

Was that a necessary. Condition was agreed. I have never profited a penny from my position in congress tells a different story the democratic press. I find it ironic that the same organs at once propped up the administration of andrew. Johnson now suddenly preached the gospel of reform. You must see these accusations against me and the rest of the grant man for what they truly are politics. I have four years left in the white house james. My name is do as much. Good as i can for as long as i can. I'll leave the politics to you and my friends. All i ask you said you hold back mr bristol until after the midterms for the sake of the party. If my friends would only reform their ways. I have no doubt the american people would rally behind them at the polls at the risk of offending mr president. And if you're not careful it'll be the death of this party. If the republican party falls in eighteen seventy four won't be because of me. It'll be because my so called friends reviews to learn the era of their ways. Andrew johnson is making way for washington. Careful you don't put the wind at his back. Andrew johnson is the most corrupt president. This country's ever seen the american people will.

"Thank you for listening to the program this morning joined now by United States senator John Thune from the great state of South Dakota he is the GOP whip number two in the house in the Senate Republican caucus good morning senator thrown out everyone on the family side everyone healthy we are indeed thank you Hugh and hopefully yours as well yeah indeed and and I I I begin by asking you about the pandemic this to to think that I'm looking at show that of all the tens of thousands of death in America only fifteen hundred I know that's a large number but only fifteen hundred of the tens of thousands have been for people forty five and younger does our re opening plan after start taking account of this demographic reality senator I think it does I think that that's you know that need to be a factor and I think the phased approach that the white house's proposed in that many states are implementing and adopting will include those types of considerations I think that vulnerable people with pre existing conditions elderly nursing homes people in that age category just have to be more careful and I think that a lot of the as the opening occurs and it starts to ramp up I think that says something that does need to be a part and factor because as you point out that's where the the greatest risk is now yesterday or two days ago speaker Pelosi put out a silly absurd bill I called cash for cannabis because there's a provision in there that takes care of marijuana dispensaries it's just not as serious bill when are we going to get to what fed chairman Powell said is a very necessary phase four senators sent well I think we will soon enough you and again you could you please this is really true that the even the media has described the house approach is just a grab bag of democratic priorities messaging bail and destined to go nowhere in the Senate back even meeting resistance from some Democrats that's that's the way it's been characterized by the press but good clearly nobody is taking it seriously and it does include a whole bunch of just you know sort of over the top features of like you know the fact that it mentions cannabis more times than I mentioned jobs and there's a provision in there a Democrat priority repeal the SALT cap which is a huge tax cut for millionaires and actually fifty fifty six percent death benefit goes the top one percent of the people in this country in terms of income so there is a lot of really crazy stuff in there if it's not a Democrat wish list I don't know what he is what we're working on here in the Senate obviously you're trying to respond to the real health emergency an economic crisis needs of the American people and determining based on what work we've done so far what those needs are and we will react and respond in a timely way hopefully in a bipartisan way to address the ongoing economic hardship is being felt by businesses across this country workers across this country families across this country but not go down this crazy path chosen by the house Democrats which again is just nothing more nothing less and nothing else than a messaging exercised the old saying is true the hedgehog knows one thing the box does many things well done foxes are in the middle of the road I think that's what the house bill as it's in the middle of the road but they had charges the Republican caucus in the one thing Larry Kudlow on the show earlier this week leader McConnell I expect you will say the same thing that is the must tab is liability protection for all Americans from any allegation that they're responsible for the virus and I it without that the country will not recover it's got to be a blanket I think almost a non suit provision for anyone who wants to claim a tort injury in state or federal a law against anybody for the virus even I'm not even inclined now to allow reckless disregard claims because they will bankrupt people well it we do need a a federal shield and that is a priority for us these lawsuits represent a very real and present threat to any kind of economic recovery and Senate Republicans are going to stand firm and pursue liability protections for health care workers businesses others on the front line of the response and and the re opening phase and the Democrats that you force always paint this is this is just protecting big corporations not it's not true I mean this is doctors and hospitals people making extraordinary efforts to protect patients and healthcare workers but are you know living in fear of being sued if the patient were somehow exposed to the disease in the process of receiving care so you've got not profit you got hospital you got businesses you go right down the list cools you know there's just that we can't be going down this path of frivolous lawsuits driving up the cost of re opening our economy and and potentially prolonging a recession or driving is worsened due to pressure this is a we're in the middle of a pandemic what we don't need is an epidemic of of you know frivolous lawsuits to make it that much harder for us to recover there are there are two sectors that I repeatedly returned to sender then one is higher education colleges and universities are on the brink of their tuition dependent semiannual infusion of cash that they don't get it they collapse and the second a restaurant they both of those sectors absolutely need liability protection I mean absolute shield they need the Avengers to surround them otherwise their their margins aren't there SO a student becomes sick on campus ensues the private campus for the State University under some exceptions sovereign immunity they're done for in the restaurant which is barely going to reopen anyway with margins that are probably set back five years they can't afford even the threat of a I can't afford to respond to the lawyer's letter right I mean and the idea of having to hire lawyers to respond and and just the enormous just dealing with everything that comes with a lawsuit like that plus not to mention me in many cases probably as people are not going to be a customer this this adds that hangs IT in businesses where the margins are very sad I mean restaurants operate on thin margins are going to continue to have their restaurants for sometime well into the future probably half full the hopefully facing up to more to better than that but in the meantime they're going to be scraping to get by and they they one thing they can't deal with and colleges are good examples well I mean our state South Dakota I talked all our college presidents they're expecting a significant reduction next fall enrollment a significant increase in costs associated with having to hire more faculty for smaller classroom sizes all those sorts of things are are going to be make it really really tough for folks operating within margins to get by this would complicate exacerbate and make it that much harder for them to survive now a senator want to veer off into a couple of conversations with you I thank and then come back to the face for but I have to ask you about judge Sullivan's just outrageous decision to invite briefing on someone's that when the prosecution wants to dismiss the case he's leaving it open he's appointed a retired judge to come in it's it's extraordinary it is an assault on civil liberties the likes of which I haven't seen in a federal court in my thirty three years of practice can the Senate Judiciary Committee hold an emergency hearing on this because it is outrageous it is it is a gross miscarriage of justice and I'm hoping and I haven't talked to senator Graham who's you know chairs the Judiciary Committee but it certainly seems to be the substance of a of a hearing had to get out what this judge is done and if you are you know I mean you cannot now say that the previous administration wasn't doing everything they possibly could to screw it up for an incoming administration to the point of taking actions that are are you a boy our our illegal and and I think frankly need to be there seems to be fully investigated figure out how high up it goes in in the administration we were saying we're seeing some of that evidence coming out now I think they'll be more that will come out but this was a full scale appears to be conspiracy to undermine and try and and take down an incoming administration a new president M. one sided with judge Solomon the other is the unmasking and and a reporter asked the president to regard the other day what is Obama gate and he said everybody knows and he walked away I describe it this way it is the intentional interference with the peaceful seamless cooperative transition of power which is the glory of their American Republic and that clearly one on between the time of the surprise win of Donald Trump and his swearing in at least thirty nine requests for unmasking unprecedented now we got a lot of dirt being kicked out unmasking happen all the time I'll bet you there were very few unmasking of senior incoming Obama officials in between the election of president Obama lacked in his inauguration by George W. bush administration officials senator Thurmond I'm not afraid of that data set comparison at all I'm not either and I you know I can't imagine that the bush administration would go to these lengths even though they disagree profoundly with at that time the incoming president Obama and his agenda and but we've always allowed for and I think as you described it in and Wall Street journal editorial page describe it that you know peaceful transition of power is a hallmark of American democracy and you know that's the Indian clearly this was an attempt to try and undermine cripple the trump administration is they they came on the scene and that's why it's it is unprecedented I don't think we certainly wish for the end of it and this needs to be something that is carefully reviewed and investigated and let's find out how far up it goes so there's a lot of poison in the system so I come back to phase four we need I even admit that the state's need for example some backstop on unemployment claim money that they just don't have and that's related to the collapse of that sales tax revenue that a late payment on property taxes people fleeing the state's not staying at a hotel they have legitimate needs unrelated their pension fiasco that center with all the boys in the system is there anyone for you and senator McConnell the sit down with actually negotiate at three point seven five the emergency stop the liability shield and some state aid is there anybody over there that you can work with well he does I hate to tell you because you know you all want you everybody wanted wanted to hope and think the bast and anything that passes the Senate obviously has to be a courses you know bipartisan but it's really hard to get reasonable people to sit down because they're still held hostage to the house agenda I mean Schumer is looking over shoulder pelo see pulls you looking over her shoulder at A. O. C. and and Anna Sanders folks and it's just they're just being pulled so hard to the left that it's hard to find anything you know any any Democrat now that you would characterize as moderate or reasonable to negotiate with so my guess is what happens at least I hope what happens is that the White House works with Senate Republicans to put together an agenda that makes sense that addresses the economic and health emergency needs of the American people and that we can bring Democrats into negotiating to find some some common ground but it gets really hard when you go to that house because right now they're all running for reelection and their base of their party activists and donors everybody is you know part of that socialist wing of the Democratic Party is going to make it very very hard for us I think to get some of these things dont but we're driving we can't because we're here to respond to what the American people need and were focused we want to do it in a bipartisan way we hope there are Democrats were willing and and Democrats who can be reasonable about what needs to be done and get away from this sort of left wing agenda that is right now captivated all house Democrats last question senator you know in a in California's twenty fifth which had been won by the Democrats by seven point Mike Garcia crushed it the Republican won by a dozen points maybe more doesn't that send a message to that the Democrats that their but a loser a blue wave they they took the mask off in America does not want left wing AOC policies you would think so I hope that I hope that's the way it's received by the Democrats that is a very historic election out there of course we I had a a strong candidate but you know you think about flipping a blue seat for the first time in over twenty years it's a I did definitely I think should sound alarm there should be they should be hearing something on the Democrat side about the fact that the American people even in a state like California want policies that don't represent a far left agenda that moves us closer and closer to a you know western European style socialist and anti democracy our great service that always a pleasure thank you for joining me senator really enjoyed I appreciate the time time for me to remind you really factor dot com Tom tells going up after the break but I do take this opportunity to tell you first go get that angel tree banner if you hear a dot com and help those kids get some relief this summer then to get relief for yourself with relief factor dot com nineteen ninety five get that first bag on.

"We do have some real breaking news Mitch McConnell is addressing the U. S. Senate he is the Republican leader he's talking about the impeachment circus let's see with the Majority Leader has to say to us today about this after not try to stay awake I pay less than a week later for political purposes Senate Democrats said they were refused to secure funding for those very sign measure Washington Democrat had talked of a storm in recent days criticizing the administration's approach sure yeah and the Middle East now I'll keep talking one rule on this if you talk about impeachment that be great I I was I was led to believe this was a speech about impeachments arrayed yes Sir it's going on anyway welcome folks welcome to the program we call what's on your mind I find myself needing to have a couple of laughs hearing there to stay sane because I feel like any day now they're gonna come and take me away because I I'm I'm welcome to my life I am just just like I'm watching a bad movie play out in front of us this makes no sense none of this makes any sense at all I get it Democrats hate Donald Trump because he has in three years time transform the game of politics right I guess they don't like what he's done with the economy rebuilding our military giving our enemies across the board fear of Hey what what what what you gonna do next that's a good thing many many things but never get any attention one example is today that there being on a website from the White House called find treatment dot org I'm sorry dot gov find treatment dot gov and it's all about the opioid crisis it isn't just talk it isn't just the press coverage they get people rose that what can we do that will make this better on all kinds of things our farmers and ranchers are respected again I could talk the entire two hours of this program about what's better maybe we should do that one day but CNN says he's already so yeah and they say that your dog sniffs but still so don't was more Hale doors lots kilowatt Morty anyone so here's what I want you to know you're not crazy ninety five percent Republicans in this country support the president ninety five percent guess what I think I'd be hard pressed to find fifty percent of Republicans who are truly fighting for him in Congress two of ninety five percent Republicans out in the districts out in the hinterlands out and up you know fly over country real America say we support this guy the same amount of folks representing us be doing that in Washington DC Republicans half to come up with a better strategy now one in my mind this is all about reelection they're not going to succeed on impeachment no way no how this is ridiculous I got even more stupid yesterday if that's possible we can't see below sea proposing what you proposed we'll talk about that a little bit on the program today with an expert on packed that little bit is that what it what's going on here what what is what the founders give us you know in the way of a road map here what why are we doing this year before the election but I want to get into the actual you know that's the bolts of procedure and how this is mostly done but the point is they're not going to go there and you saw the letter from Lindsay Graham Mitch McConnell senator Thurmond senator Kramer and all but a handful of senators saying sorry you're not gonna do that and then expect come over here and get an impeachment it's not gonna happen so it's it's not gonna happen so what we need to worry about in my mind his fighting back against the effort to make the story a flawed crazy impeachment process we need to find a way to how do we do that I'd ask you are fine audience on the program how do you fight this what are you fighting Donald Trump junior has a new book out it's called triggered we'll have a monsoon to talk about it do you have a clip cabin of Donald Trump junior on fox and friends this morning when he was I thought very artfully explaining what we are up against so we need to realize what we're up against the way the opponents of Donald Trump view the world view of the country okay listen to this closely this is about his response the socialism and then doing business in internationally ideology that's now being pushed sure on Americans as a mainstream thought my grandparents were still in my grandmother was alive in tears wonderfully you can't let this happen to this country you can't let socialism and communism coming here it always sounds so good on paper and then it destroys everything and in your family built this empire there's a story when I was down in Washington this weekend that yeah the family is thinking about selling the lease to these people trump hotel down in Washington will listen we'll explore the reality is this everyone saying we're getting so rich off of the we can't sell or get a rent rooms to people who are in other governments right we voluntarily did that week we can maximize the assets that they have in their still writing about that we literally volunteered to not do any new international leaning toward doing it mostly what happens right the reality is that unlike hunter Biden who magically became an international businessman the second his father stepped on that world stage as VP we've been international business people for decades but we can't even do those kind of deals anymore we can't even continue and because we chose not to because we didn't think was appropriate so that's the double standard the media's all your enriching yourself with like but we literally stopped he literally started when he had the the first chance he got to take advantage of his father's office we did exactly the opposite but again when you look at the world through the mainstream media's lands they see but Daddy as an austere religious scholar but they see Nick's Sandman a fifteen year old high school kid in a mother had they see him as a home grown terrorist this is the sickness that were up against and it's pervasive and it's getting worse because trump derangement syndrome is real and the only cure is four more years there you go this is the sickness were up against and it's not just the mainstream media it is the left is a leftist it is the Democratic Party all right your hunter Biden magically became an international this is our motto is very good is very very good but knowing more up against that people would think this way you don't have to inform your actions going forward so Mike my question is what's the best way to do this Republicans have blown this workers have been worthless Republicans are part of the reason that the the the the president has had to fight as long as that a fight on this effort if not fought well.

Senate it was a common knowledge that the strong justice showed up and essentially read what he was told to read off of of five by eight cards that were passed to amend that affectively yeah the chief of staff for senator Thurmond was the acting senior senator from South Carolina for for a good many years but again in the case let's say of a of a became would periodic testing let's say past a certain age suffice. yeah. something like that the problem is mental illness you really don't know how old you really see it and so that's why I'm kind I don't I don't think age limits because they're right I mean we have we have a hundred year old lady in my job that what's around in her senses and there's everything is there she knows what's going on and everything which is a hundred god bless his heart. yeah it's just kind of scary because you know who who's really running the country then well yeah exactly and the judge she spent six years with having cancer and she's been in and out I'm not saying listen I'm not I'm not saying she shouldn't do it you're it what you want to work that one fifty. yeah well I mean I. well made with it's not a case of money most of them enjoy their work but I certainly see what you're saying Kelly I thank you for your special expertise for the question at hand here hours driving through Tennessee tonight and offers a box good evening al. I'm well thank you. see what directions well with like the Medicaid I'm a little nervous about being on the radio but the first one I would like to make is you know I don't believe that an age limit is necessarily. seven four one as we mature we get more intelligent it's just a of fresh we gather information as we go as we grow older. being up to a point yes go ahead. term limits is what I think should be in place there are people that have been in Congress for god knows how long and they just become richer and richer and richer Leslie the last thing I would like to point out is. I don't think we want to give Joe Barton on the stage with Donald Trump. if we do. there's a couple things Mike perhaps happen one journalist Nick torrents for gaps. we're going to keep happening they're gonna keep rolling off the total. and then you know Johnny very made his threat toward don't drop that he wanted to be. international that's right. well I I dare say that we probably don't have that particular spectacle to look forward to al both it. well as a bit of this way it would be interesting instead of a debate will have a steel cage match yes that's the. okay thanks I appreciate your call your Lister ship and the thank you very much one eight six six five oh Jimbo one eight six six five oh five four six two six I was a call from Tom in Sharon Pennsylvania hello Tom. you know first of all it seems to me that Ben Franklin was in his early eighties and still serving his country well Franklin Roosevelt in terms of health conditions quite frankly if people knew about days physical condition just story would have been elected president and now he Norwood John Kennedy well but I'm thinking Roosevelt in particular with the depression and World War two. yeah you know he he was the inspiration they got this country I think for both of us yeah Franklin for the record died at age eighty four in seventeen ninety so he was in his early eighties when the constitution was written so yes serving us as ambassador France I think in his eighties well the Hey it's time is a bad sort of France he was it was a bit younger than that but still vote no spring chicken and the guy was born in that seventeen oh six if not forget that this guy was twenty six years old when George Washington was born. yeah I think about that you know but but but here's the thing you know I I think in terms and and I don't know what kind of shape Jimmy Carter's in right now the last I heard he had defeated the bait brain cancer that he had done. well the point of getting as two things number one technically if you know he could run for president again because only served one term he could I don't think there's a ground swell but yet technically legally. but I will tell you what I used a comparison when people search only about trump you know what I he doesn't look presidential doesn't act presidential you know he's not mild mannered and so forth accounts ice night I stayed home well you know maybe one person Carter back and long lines in the gas range really even on days on the gas stations and the foreign forty four days of the hostages and the double digit inflation that misery index that was there probably not died died there saying that he and Carter at that time was what fifty three. and we have a problems with this Carter had had nothing to do with age no no but what I'm getting at is just that dead dead in terms of its not age its effectiveness and you can't judge affecting the effectiveness I don't think you know that at any age prior to the person getting in here because we don't have any test to give somebody to them to see if they're going to make a good president and by the way to school took on the US Supreme Court yeah I I think there should be limitations of their I I hesitate right now because I'd like I'd like to see that the conservatives have some consumers for either to bring this back from the edge for awhile but then once that happens I'd like to see term limits on on the US Supreme Court yeah I I think that in terms of term limits on the Supreme Court or even on Congress if we ever got an article five convention I think the only way you would ever get term limits through would be is if everyone currently in office were grandfathered in at all new members of the Congress all new the justices were limited by a certain term I think that's the only way that that would that would work we'll take a quick break and as we do so let's check in with our Friday night guest mighty John Marshall of money music dot com. hi this is Maggie John the record guy what rock album spent seven hundred forty one weeks on the chart walked away from fame and fortune living in the cellar his childhood home with no contact with the outside world. what's the album and how much is a copy work find out right after this. are you tired of the nightmare of trading in a market that feels rigged don't you just want to see your account balance grow and not feel so anxious about every single trade well it's time you.
"senator thurmond" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio
"But what would I say the politics? It's complicated. I did work for Senator Kennedy when stage Mike career, and we jointly confirmed people with Republicans we had a staff person Senator Thurmond did they always worked together that was a different time. But. I don't see in politics when you're in the Senate or on the staff, are you Republican democrat who's popular will this make my boss, more popular, less popular, where are the votes. See that in the in the supreme court, no zero. And you'll say what about Bush gore? I'll explain that to you. But I need an hour. I haven't even know that if I could bring you around, but I would do my best. I think no. But. You say, well, what about ideology? Are you Adam Smith free enterprise? Are you a Maoist troublemaker what? Well, I don't think that has a role, but that's hard to say though, if I find myself writing something or deciding something and thinking, but this is what he's good for the country in general, those idiological terms. I know I'm doing the wrong thing. And so does everybody else. But there's yet a still a different thing. And that is. I did I was raised in San Francisco. My father who's watch. I have here where for the school department. I grew up with the San Francisco public schools. I went to localize school. Went to Stanford. I've had to life. I've had and everyone in a profession after a certain time develops view now not specific us, necessarily, but general involve jurisprudential views. What's this document, the constitution really about what's the country life? What's law, really like? And even if you don't have specific answers, you could write down you do have attitudes. And not everyone is the same. Some like myself probably put more emphasis on purposes values consequence. Others like Nino school e-even we got on with very well. We got very well. But he'll put more weight on text, I'll pay attention to text, and he'll pay attention to consequences. But it's a question of degree. And so over time, I think but happens. I mean that was something I wondered. You know, what I came the December lived in Boston. I've seen a lot of disagreement. But nothing like when I came here. Why doesn't everybody agree with me so reasonable and then after time after time I thought, well, you know, president to appoint and think that person points always going to agree with them are for a big surprise. But at the level of general philosophy general outlook there more often. Not always I mean teddy Roosevelt appointed Oliver Wendell Holmes within three months on a big antitrust case Holmes was on the other side Roosevelt didn't like in Roosevelt's that I could appoint judge with more backbone out of a banana. But by and large, so I tended to move towards the conclusion, this is obvious a big country. People have all kinds of different views every race every religion. I mean, my mother used to say every point of view, so crazy there isn't somebody here who doesn't and she said they all live in Los Angeles. But nonetheless. Nonetheless, the miracle of this document and the miracle of the country, and it's only partly achieved. The we get these three hundred thirty million people live together without murdering each other and resolving their disputes even Biegman's underlaw instead of in the streets, and the more you're in my job, the more you sitting chair, you think that is a miracle. And it's one of the things we have to offer. It's one of the things we have to off. And of course, we have to work on. And that's what I say to the students. I hope you're gonna participate in politics. In the country. In the civic organizations exist document won't work unless you do. So you see it's complicated. But if as you read in the paper, the only thing that's written about a handful of cases that are the most controversial because they have a political social content, and when they say is they didn't use forty years ago. This judge appointed by this president that judge appointed by the other. I worry I worry that people will not understand that normally almost half are cases are unanimous that the five fours or usually about five ten maybe twenty percent, not always the same five not always the same bore. And it's that that I worry about most in terms of thinking the court is to political. And it's that which I'm talking to the students about and, but Sandra O'Connor did was go to work founding is civic. So they know something about how our government works. And that I think is the most important thing. Confirmation process. It is what it is. But. Teaching twelfth grade civics which Jerry Brown probably took. I'm sure and you probably did I did. And I did but not everybody does. Now their hair you went into the peace. Why doesn't everybody, and that's what I tell the students print court Justice Steven Brier last night with Bill press. I believe it strongly you and your fellow justices made some news today. Justice by accepting important cases, dealing with basic civil rights and whether those nineteen sixty four Civil Rights Act applies to people of sexual orientation, not just as sex sex discrimination protection protects gays and lesbians in the workplace. I want to ask you about. What that means about the process of the court. Secondly. But I do you have any general comment about those cases? No, okay. I just thought try. Okay. But so this does get to the question to ask about the little bit about the process the philosophy and the practice of the court in the time that we have in the process, how do you decide which cases to take? And how many cases do you take? Well, we only take federal vocations federal law. That's congress in this document constitution and most law, which she below no in the country's state law almost all of it. Criminal law, mostly state, family law almost all state education towards business. You name it. It's state Federal's little all right? But there's still a lot of cases by the time. They have their trials haven't settled the case they should settle. But if they can't settle them they go to trial and finally they may appeal, and they're probably a eighty or one hundred thousand cases with federal issues in the top pellet courts every year and of those eight thousand or so seven to eight thousand we'll ask us to hear it, and we'll hear about seventy eighty and so what really happens is that we have law clerks for five four us, and they pool most of them and so a seven five or seventy five hundred or so is about one hundred fifty a week divided by thirty is about five. So each of them works on five should I do it. You say, hey, I'd rather have a human being called a law Farkas very talented, by the way and goes through those. Scrawl petitions because at scrawl petition, maybe right? And sometimes it is than to have me pretend to do it. Because of that number. I'd be pretending. So I like that. So what you wanna know is when I read those memos to ten pages. How do I select the small stack which are the ones I'm going to suggest we discuss and the answer was given by president Taft when he became chief Justice. He said we are not there to correct mistakes of lower courts. There are too many or maybe media make the mistake. You know, what are you there for them? Well, he said the primary job almost exclusively. And it still is is to create a uniform federal law. That is when in fact, all the lower court judges who considered this federal question these words in the statute or the application of the statute of the constitution, come to the same conclusion. What need for us? They're good. Judges do. But if they're divided well, then the law isn't uniform. And so we'll probably take it not definitely the probably and that's easier to find, you know, and they're only a few now there are a few others. I mean, if some if a court holds the statute of congress unconstitutional, we'll take it almost certainly. And sometimes there's just some major case for the country needs an answer. We think we're going to provide a veteran, sir. We'd sometimes drew and sometimes not. But for the most part, you see what I'm doing that stack is divisions of opinion. And then anyone of us can have discussed on Friday any case. And we discuss out of those one hundred fifty maybe ten maybe twelve and we'll go around the table our conference room where we're alone will say few things not much and therefore votes, we take it. If not we don't fire or something want to discuss it further or write something to my colleagues all hold it over and eventually four votes or not. That's it's really mechanical much more than people think it's onto the next thing. And of course, you see that suppose we should've taken a case that we should should've taken it. But we didn't. What will happen? What will happen to the issue in that case? Yeah. It'll come back in another case. And by the way, if it never comes back. Hey, I guess the country didn't need as you said that if we take one, and we shouldn't have Caceres jurisdictional issue in it or some kind of an issue. Everybody starts not really the one. We wanted to hear that can cause a problem. So I look in this papers when they write about like what you said. But I'm not looking to see whether they think it was good battery different that they took the case. I'm looking to see if I say what case that would be bad. And I don't generally in deciding these cases the process goes along we in the media, I think put so much attention on the arguments trying to read you or Justice or the chief chief by questions, you might ask. Are we putting too much stock in the argument? Yes. Much much. I mean, once we granted case people start writing briefs, I don't know why they're called breathes. But regardless you have a petitioner it's blue and the respondents Radnor about sixty pages each and a yellow one of about thirty pages from the petitioner, and the government might follow gray, brief governments always gray. And then you can follow one curia light green for the petitioner dark green for the respondent. And usually they're about ten to twenty. There could be a hundred hundreds pretty tough. But I'll read all those briefs. Now, I grant you that if there are thirty or forty Mike is begin to see if it's repetitive, which it is and I'll look through, but I look irrelevant, and I give them to my law clerks h three sets, I do twelve cents an oral argument period is usually for twelve and. They'll write a memo and I'll read their memo, and we'll discuss it and all that happened before the orchids. So so the oral argument is really for us to ask questions, and it's very hard for the lawyers for the lawyers because you know, they aren't sure what it's going to be. And and one judge starts nod and the others frowning and my God. So it's very hard. Now. What is a really good question. A good question is I don't know the answer when I ask. But I think the lawyer can help me out, and I believe that it's relevant to the decision in the case. Now, usually that's what.

"senator thurmond" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"Hold on Facebook. I'm David Armstrong wants to know question was during my time in government service. What was the funniest thing? I ever saw. Without any reservation. It is this. I was testifying before the United States Senate. I don't even remember what committee. It was. Since Robert Byrd of West Virginia was on the committee. And there was a vote. The bell rang for a vote. Senator Byrd was just old enough and didn't care about whether he was on record voting for something or not. So while all the other senators scattered to go vote. He remained in the committee room. I don't remember who the I think the chair of the committee time may have been Joe Lieberman from Connecticut. And Senator Lieberman announced that they were gonna take a ten minute break while the senators went to cast their vote. So rather than getting up and leaving my staff, and I decided to just stay in the committee room. I continued to sit in the witness chair. And was just talking to my staff when we noticed a sinister bird had not left. Silverberg caught my eye. And he asked me if I was and I want to say it was Jim Ed Brown. He wanted to know if I was related to this old, West Virginia bluegrass singer. And I think his name was Jim Ed Brown. And I said, well Senator I I'm not that. I'm I'm somewhat familiar with with his music. And the Senator said, you know, he's one of my favorite artists. Whereupon Senator Byrd. The former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan began to seem to me. Jerry was sitting on the dice all by himself. There was a smattering of people in the audience. It was me and probably I don't know four or five staffers. And there was Senator Byrd. Singing some bluegrass song from Jim Ed Brown. I sat there. I didn't know what to do. So I just listen to him. When he finished I stood up and clapped and said Senator that was a mighty fine. Singing. I thought my staff we're gonna laugh the rest of the day after we left that committee hearing there was the grand wizard the KKK sing singing me a song. Those the funniest thing. So the second funniest thing was and this is actually kind of sad. After nine eleven we were in the above. The Senate chambers is a skiff a secure compartmentalized information facility. It's a top secret place where you can go. And you can't take your cell phones in soundproof and the Reuss the Reuss skis can't spy and listening to what's going on. And so me, the Attorney General John Ashcroft? George at the director of the CIA. And Condoleeza Rice at the time the national security advisor, the four of us were there to brief the Senate intelligence committee about what we were doing post nine eleven. This was like maybe two days. This is like maybe September thirteen or fourteen. And it was just supposed to be the Senate intelligence committee. But the room just kept filling up and we kept telling well hold on. We're going to delay the briefing. They kept delaying the briefing and pretty soon we realized that the room had filled up with all one hundred US senators. I was sitting. Right now. I don't know how this always happened. But for whatever reason Hilary Clinton, and I always ended up sitting together and these kinds of meetings, so Hillary Clinton, and I are sitting next to each other about two rows behind the third row from the front on the end right in front of us. There is an empty spot where chair would be. But instead it was for Senator Strom Thurmond for some for Senator Thurmond to be wheeled in in his wheelchair and Senator Thurmond at that point was way beyond having his faculties. It was rumored that is chief of staff who had wheeled him into the Senate chamber or the Senate room for that briefing had also been casting his votes on his behalf. John Ashcroft, then the attorney general starts the briefing and. Since and leans over to his chief of staff and in avoidance that he thinks is quiet says. I don't remember. The chiefs staffs name. Let's just say it's Charlie Charlie who's talking up there. And Charlie has to explain to the Senator that it's the attorney general of the United States of America. So sitting United States Senator doesn't have a clue. Who the attorney general of the United States is? Fun times. Absolutely. Some fun times. A strip club. You see? I just do that segue. That's that's that's a perfect segue. Right there. You got the grand wizard of the KKK, and he got Strom Thurman, and now we're gonna talk about strip clubs it all fits it. All fits perfectly a strip club in Dayton, Ohio has been off more than they can choose after they lost their liquor license following an investigation that proved it was allowing customers to use food stamps. To buy drugs and lap dances. Five-month investigation. I'm sorry. I just find it funny. Hey, baby. Can I get a lap dance? Sure. Do you take e-bt cards? Sure, let me get my phone out. Let me get my square reader plugged in. And you can swipe your card or you can just you know, I'll give you a really good lap dance. If you'll just give me your e BT card. During their five five-month investigational undercover agents. Use more than two thousand four hundred dollars in food stamps to buy dances along with a variety of drugs, including cocaine heroin. No. No, there's no problem. I I just think that we should we should look at this. As maybe that's where they get their nutrition. Maybe that's the kind of nutrition they need you.

"So once the secretary, Florida state needs to be needs to be reinstated. If this guy is going to get away with this. Yeah. Exactly. I would have the moon. And here's another one the moon bad. Presidential candidates attacked the call for his resignation. I mean, this is the first day of black history month, right? And and he would be replaced by a black guy. Eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two. What do you think what's going to happen to the governor of Virginia? He is. He is a democrat someone said that the last line of of his of his heartfelt apology. That's what they're going to call. It a heartfelt apology is should be. And I'm not going to resign. Thank god. I'm a democrat. You don't want to when a when a democrat does something like this, even if he's twenty six twenty seven years old. It's a youthful indiscretion. A Republican does it. Racist. That's the way it works. Paul. You're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead, Paul. Our? With Whoopie Goldberg after cheers. Black fits with her on stage. Yeah. That was way up to eighty four. So I mean, how come it's a problem? Well, he's a liberal again. It depends on your political perspective. Oh, so it's do no wrong. Democrats. Right. Well, look at it. I was thinking about during the break. Look at Trent Lott. Remember him? He was the he was the Senator from Mississippi and was the was the Senate majority leader and Strom Thurmond was celebrating his one hundred birthday. He was still the Senator from South Carolina. I think it was his hundredth birthday. And he ran for president is a Dixie crap that was the that was they broke off from the democrat party and forty eight. He was the governor of South Carolina at the time because the Democrats had integrated the armed forces. And so so Trent Lott said he was just making a joke and trying to make an old man feel good at his birthday party. And he said, you know, sometimes Senator Thurmond, I think it would have been better if you had been elected president in nineteen forty eight and they they ran Trent Lott out of his majority leadership position. They basically ran them out of the Senate for saying that just trying to be just trying to say, something, gracious and. Nice to an old guy who wasn't going to be around that much longer. And this guy this guy is going to get away with it though. And again, this is going to be if he gets away with it. If he gets away with a nut still say, he's a heavy favourite to survive. He he will he will prove the double standard once and for all, thanks. Thanks for the call Paul. What else is funny too? Is that if you're a democrat, you can't be judged on one indiscretion you made a million years ago. But if you're a Republican, you cannot only be judged on indiscretion, you can meet judge on hypothetical indiscretions that you made thirty years ago. No evidence, if they feel they have if they have an inkling that something happened. You can lose your job. Will remember Sheldon? Whitehouse was the guy who was really a grilling Brett Cavanaugh the Senator from Rhode Island. White House was grilling Cavanaugh about what he meant by pufus or whatever that word was in the in the yearbook, and I'm thinking to myself, wait, a second Sheldon Whitehouse, didn't your son get into some trouble for some underage drinking a few years back, you know, with with one of the Chafee kids, you know, the Yankees riding around Rhode Island. Drinking their brains out underage. But of course, nobody ever mentions that you don't because again, not because Sheldon Whitehouse Yankee, it's because he's a democrat. So he gets a pass his kid gets a pass. Everybody gets. You gotta be. It it's the democrat immunity from prosecution. So now now that he's confirmed that it's him in the picture. We've moved to the stage of the news cycle where all the reporters. Call every democratic presidential candidate every democrat elected official and ask them. Should he resign? Right. That's that's where this is headed, right? I know you're saying that cynically, but I think you have to ask that. Absolutely. You do you know, especially Cory Booker got all that free ink and airtime today because he announced I mean now now you gotta hit them with a real question. Right. You have to and Joe Joe Biden is taken all this crap for being called a racist. Earlier in the day ask Joe Biden is he still down here in Fort Lauderdale. I don't know. But he tracked down Joe Biden, by the way. How is it time for a national conversation about black face not by Megan Kelly? She's not getting into that one again tau if she were still say we could have a town hall with Megan Kelly and the secretary of state of Florida, and maybe be Trent Lott could come back from his lobbying job in DC. I'm sure there are other ones that I've forgotten about have gotten into GM's for stuff like this. If they asked Kamala Harris about it. I know at her answer would be let's move on. I remember what speaking of Kernersville, which figured it. Police blotter facts. I remember one time. I think I don't know if it was great Swisher is father was also in politics in Kernersville. I think it was the old man, whatever his name was the the older Swisher was at a city council meeting one time, and he spoke in black dialect, and even in even in like, the Sabbath these North Carolina that was a big deal. He took a he he didn't have to resign. But he took a lot of crap about this is this is really gonna be enlightening. How this how this plays out eight four four five hundred forty two forty two Tom you're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead. Tom. Say how you know if the Republicans were really serious about couldn't a night between this jokers shoulder blades. They would get Justice cabinet already issue. A public statement, of empathy and support for this guy. But you know, what Kavanagh did was was so inconsequential compared to this. And again, the age difference the difference between being I think I think Cavanaugh was seventeen wasn't. He wasn't. He a junior in high school when? Macho stuff appeared in the yearbook. So it's the difference with it's it's almost ten years difference in age, those are those are ten pretty important years. Aren't they? Especially when you figure again, north of north of didn't go to light Green Mountain college Hampshire college where everybody's smoking weed all day long. He went to he went to Virginia Military institute. VMI he he had he had a he was from a disciplined institution, and then he went to medical school, which again is is not not an easy thing any medical school. And yet he still behaving in this fashion. I'm just trying I'm trying to pretend that I'm that this these a Republican, right? And and I'm on MSNBC or CNN. So there's there's a CBS reporter how he was asked Governor Raimondo whether she thinks the governor north should resign. And apparently, the New Jersey governors is just directing all comments to the democratic governors association. Well, you know, the the governor of New Jersey's got a problem because he just they just broom the case one of the one of the campaign female campaign workers claims she was harassed by the head of his his Hispanic officer, some some PC affirmative action office, and they just broom that case, so I'm sure governor Murphy the last thing he wants to do is get mixed up in in another one of these cases like this and how you were asking about the difference in age. Well, actually, they really don't let you rent cars until you're over the age of twenty five because your brain isn't fully developed. So he was twenty six he can rent a car breath. Cavanaugh could not ever just doing comparisons. Here. John, you're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead. John. And I like to tell you you have a fantastic crew. Thank. The point that I would like to make his that. I put the governor of and. Of New York right up there with pedophile. That's all I have to say. They're exactly pedophile. It's you know, they're they're not they're not having sex with with children. They're just, you know, governor north rim. He I don't care. How you spin. What he said. He basically said they were just you keep the baby comfortable while you have a discussion with what you're gonna do. And one of the texter says are they keeping the Democrats keeping governor north room comfortable while they have discussion about what they're gonna do with him. You want some coffee governor house he air conditioning in here. Sometimes sometimes governor those of us in political life. Find ourselves in. Circumstances that the coin of phrase might be described as tragic and difficult and sometimes governor for the good of the mother's health candidate is comes is born with severe abnormalities. And you know, it's it's better for all concerned. If we just well, you know, governor you understand you were a pediatrician a pediatric neurologist you understand what it's like eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two. I'm gonna I this is going to be an this is going to be an interesting evening on on the on the moon channels. This is this is one of those things where you you really wanna see see how they're going to remember remember when I made the war woop in in Bangor, Maine. Thank you for that. How he region? Not one of those things that you tend to forget, Rachel Maddow made. It seem like I'd been doing the goosestep and the the the Heil Hitler salute on the show now. And I think history has proven the I was on the right side of history that night that day now who's gonna get who's going to get a tougher time on Rachel is is is the governor of Virginia gonna get a now, especially since you came out for infanticide earlier this week on WTO P radio in Washington is he going to get a tougher time or an easier time than Howie Carr Ola. Now that.
"senator thurmond" Discussed on The West Wing Weekly
"I have enough memory of what came before and lemon lime. And yes that is like dude you have you learned nothing and the answer is. No, that's right. I believe that he's learned nothing though. And so it's less about like a unbelievable moment in the plot. And more just like, look we've already watched this live. We already see what happens we've been there before rea- Donna says that gossip districts. How does she get this one of the dealer? I guess it's not the end of the world has weblogs. Say weblog, but he hasn't told anybody or I guess he told Kate, but he didn't tell C J or Toby both of them when they learn about it from the blog. They are understandably upset and think that he's being silly for not having revealed it earlier, so they could do some kind of damage control. Did you pause and read the blog, and I did not because maybe this is just this would actually be accurate, but there's a just a giant typo telling the story. It says the family was complete in shock. Are they trying to get like, hyper realistic, like this is the level of journalism, you find online or somebody just hitting the bike in before they wrote up what we're going to see on screen. The family was completed in shock. Yeah. Let me read you a little something from the internet about blogs. Sure. From Wikipedia an obscure source that I found online they haven't entry on blogs. And it says by two thousand four the role of blogs became increasingly mainstream. That's the year that we are in in this two thousand four as political consultants new services and candidates began using them as tools for outreach and opinion forming blogging was established by politicians and political candidates to express opinions on war and other issues and cemented blogs role as a new source even politicians not actively campaigning began to blog to bond with constituents. Israel was among the first national governments to set up an official blog, although in Israel. They're called gold's. They go, right. Or I guess their goal. You wouldn't put the S and the other right? Okay. Then I was looking for this section on political impact an early milestone in the rise in importance of blogs came in two thousand two when many bloggers focused on comments by US. Senate majority leader Trent Lott and Senator Lott at a party honoring Strom Thurmond praised Senator Thurmond by suggesting that the US would have been better off had Thurmond been elected president lots critics saw these comments as a tacit approval of racial segregation policy advocated by Thurmond's, nineteen forty eight presidential campaign. I remember this you remember this in two thousand two. Yeah. Indeed, I do. So this view was reinforced by documents and recorded interviews dug up by bloggers, for example, talking points memo parking coins memo now T PM is very much considered. Like, legit, political news source, you're but in two thousand two guess like district scene. Maybe it was seen more as like a fringe new source. Yeah. That's background the Russians were just starting all these box, right? Simply the lots comments were made at a public event attended by the media. No major media organizations reported on his controversial comments until after blogs broke the story. The blog is fear broke the story yet, they also broke. The Dan rather story where he said that President Bush's military service record was in conflict with accounts that were accepted turned out that the documents were forgeries, and you know, and that led to Dan rathers resignation. So Josh does not disclose this. Then they find out and then he decides to call up the blogger and yell at her and. Yeah. And then she starts just transcribing. What he's I mean. It's just so dumb. Josh is just so dumb in this episode. His. His dumb ass in this episode. Yeah. It did kind of amusement idea of saying this is off the record..
