"And so I'd like to get a wide range of questions on different topics and address them. And the good thing is I'll be able to address them in a little more depth because I'll be doing kind of a single segment just on one on one question. So again, that email is questioned in as a Gmail dot com, just turn on your phone, record the question as an audio or video and just email it in. It's really easy. All right. 30 seconds or less W reminds me for the question. To give me a little more time for the answer. All right, I'm going to talk today about the left's really pathetic attempt to smear clarence Thomas based upon emails sent by his wife, Ginny Thomas. They want him to recuse himself. We'll talk about that. I'll review a telling case involving Brown Jackson that the Biden administration sought to hide from the Senate. Debbie's going to join me when I talk about California's slide toward Venezuela, which Debbie calls sweller. I'll contemplate the strange implications of living in a metaverse along with Mark Zuckerberg as your neighbor. Wow. And I'll begin with Dante climb up the purgatorial mountain, but I'm going to start by asking a simple question, which is why purgatory. This is the dimash just a podcast. America needs this voice. The times are crazy, and a time of confusion, division, and lies. We need a brave voice of recent understanding and truth. This is the dinesh d'souza podcast. Debbie just reminded me this is the 300th episode of the podcast. Wow, so we've created really starting, I guess January 11th was last year, 300 hours, roughly of content. And I hope you've enjoyed it. It's been a great journey and so, you know, there's no time to celebrate on we go to 400 and onward. I want to talk here about the left really pathetic attempt to get Thomas justice Thomas to recuse himself. Maybe even stepped down. He should resign. And why should he resign? Not because of anything he's done evidently, but because of some emails and some political activism on the part of his wife. This is Ginny Thomas. By the way, a friend of mine, I've known both Thomas is now for several years. In fact, I was kind of buddies with clarence Thomas back in his old days at the equal employment opportunity commission. We had lunch a few times. I just love to hear his booming laugh. And I just enjoyed his perspective on issues. Now, this is a guy who is really not just a great justice, but he's been a great human being. And somebody who has withstood unbelievable attacks from the left. And they've never let up. Of all the justices, this is the guy that they can stand. And by the way, this really dismantled all their rhetoric of race, you know, we got to have the first black woman in the Supreme Court. Well, you had a black justice on the Supreme Court and how have you treated him over the past? Decades. So the latest ruse or pretext to go after him is Jenny Thomas. And what did Jenny Thomas is great offense? Well, apparently she was part of the group that believed. It didn't believe the results of the election. She was apparently sending texts to Mark Meadows, The White House chief of staff, saying that there are different ways in which Trump could challenge the results. Anyway, the putting all that to the side, who cares. This is there's a big difference between what Jenny Thomas is doing. Now if clarence Thomas was doing all that, you could say, well, wait a minute, are you supposed to be on the court? These are cases that could come before the court. He has somehow taken a political position or compromised his objectivity as a judge, but none of that is even at issue. The issue is should Thomas recuse himself from cases or should he step down because of his wife's email activism. Now, by the way, Jenny Thomas didn't organize the events of January 6th or anything like that. So any suggestion to the contrary, it has no support at all. But the point is this that jud there's a kind of well established standard for when judges have to recuse themselves from cases. And the standard is this. They have to do it when they have a financial conflict of interest. So a judge has a lot of his investments in company a, company a is suing company B, the coming before the court. Yeah, that's the case where the judge has a clear interest of financial interest and or when the judge has some obvious reason to question the judge's impartiality. An example is actually come up in connection with catan G Jackson, but this thing, for example, about a judge that says served on the Harvard board of trustees and has been in a sense, very active in the administration of Harvard University now there's a lawsuit over Harvard's affirmative action program, the judge would obviously, in a sense, tend to side with Harvard because they've got he or she has got a long-standing relationship with the university, so there's a question of impartiality. So those are cases where judges recuse themselves. But let's remember that most judges, the supplies to appellate court judges and district court judges, Supreme Court judges. They're married to influential people. And these influential people do all kinds of things. And in some cases, these influential people are in the law. They're in the legal field. They file legal briefs. And they file legal reason in some cases that are cited in Supreme Court, rulings. But in all these cases, we find case after case where judges are not. Do not step down and not require a step down and ethics reviews of their conduct show that they did not have to step down. Here's an example. 9th circuit court judge judge Stephen Reinhardt of the 9th circuit. This, by the way, is a kind of a liberal icon. And a case by making its way up to his court and his wife was the head of an ACLU chapter had commented on the lower court opinion and the ACLU submitted a brief to the court, so you would think that judge reinhard would be like, well, maybe I should step down my wife is involved, the ACLU is involved. But Reinhardt goes quote that his wife's a quote her is not mine, and I do not in any way condition my opinions on the position she takes regarding any issues. So basically what reinhard is saying is on my own man and the fact that my wife is a public figure and the fact that she has opinions doesn't make the my opinion. So, you know, there appears to be here on the part of the left to kind of resurrection of the old standard that wives sort of don't have positions of their own, their positions are kind of annexed or extension extension of their husbands and therefore Jenny Thomas activism is now sort of automatically attributed to clarence Thomas. Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Her husband Marty Ginsburg was prominent figure in a law firm. That law firm represented parties before the Supreme Court, in no case to justice Ginsburg recuse herself..

"The chairman dick urban trying to introduce Maisie hirono the Democrat from Hawaii to ask her questions but Ted Cruz is hopping in here and trying to make a point earlier this afternoon Durbin and Cruz got into it when Durbin gaveled a cruise down saying he had far exceeded his time Cruz continued to try to ask questions Let me go through this again I have a letter that I want to enter into The rules that signed by ten senators on this committee are you not even going to allow a letter from ten senators on this committee Any letter you can do it This letter that is signed by ten senators on the committee addressed to you Makes the point that The White House gave you probation information for Democrats that was not provided to the minority on this committee and just now judge Jackson told senator Holly you can not understand these cases without reading the probation reports ten senators on this committee are asking the chairman Mister chairman provide those reports so we can do what judge Jackson just chairman which is the report I know this is not like Patrick Leahy chiming into this debate now as well Most of us have been here a long time trying to follow the rules And he could very easily hand you a letter in the record He says he's doing this help Senator senator Holly could put it in He didn't And let's get back to record Senator Holly didn't write the letter mister It'd be admitted to the record Senator Ronald Thank you Are you denying consent Thank you mister chairman Aloha judge Jackson This is Macy hirano a Democrat from Hawaii continuing questions for judge kanji Brown Jackson I'm taking a lead from my friend senator sitting to my left Well at least you and I are very color coordinated today So since 2018 I have been asking every nominee that comes before the committees on which I said the two questions that I asked you at the start of my time namely whether or not they have a history of sexual assault or harassment This is something I started in 2018 to make sure that harassment and abuse that women mainly have put up with since as far as I'm concerned time immemorial didn't continue to get swept under the rug I found these questions to be important for nominees to the judiciary As chief justice Roberts stated in his 2017 year end report on the federal judiciary events and recent months have illuminated the depth of the problem of sexual harassment in the workplace and events in the past few weeks have made clear that the judicial branch is not immune Here are just a few examples of abusive practices by federal judges in December 2017 6 former law clerks and staffers accused 9th circuit judge Alex Kaczynski of subjecting them to a range of inappropriate sexual conduct and comets In September 2019 the tenth circuit judicial council issued an order finding that district court judge Carlos apologized if I mispronounce his last name I had Harris multiple employees over a period of years including by subjecting them to sexually suggestive comments Inappropriate text messages and excessive non work related conduct In February 2020 former law clerk to the late 9th circuit judge Stephen Reinhardt accused the judge of a month's long harassment campaign and these are a few of the cases that we know about There are undoubtedly many more We don't know about both because of the power imbalance between federal judges and their clerks and employees who often rely on connections and recommendations to advance in their careers And because of the lack of legal recourse available to the judicial employees many may not realize this but federal judicial branch employees are not protected by the foundational federal statutes such as title 7 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that prohibit discrimination and retaliation And that's why I introduced along with chair Durbin and senators White House and Murray the judicial accountability act which would ensure the more than 30,000 employees of the federal judiciary have strong statutory rights and protections against discrimination sexual harassment retaliation and other forms of workplace conduct I know you can't comment on legislation so I won't ask you whether you support the judicial accountability act Instead I'd like to hear what you do to make sure your chambers is a safe inclusive place to work Thank you senator I as you know have been a judge now for almost a decade And I take my responsibilities not only to hear and decide cases seriously but also my responsibility as an employer That I bring law clerks into my chambers I was a law clerk to three wonderful federal judges who were role models for me and I tried to act as a role model to my law clerks I try to bring in people who Have the respect of others people who come with strong recommendations people who I think will get along with one another And certainly people who I think will get along with me and we create a little group a working group and I think that it's worked out well And I would think that you would make sure that there are no instances of inappropriate behavior sexual harassment from any of your clerks or employees That's absolutely correct During our courtesy meeting I enjoyed learning more about your background and family And of the 9 sitting justices of the Supreme Court only three justices Alito briar and Kagan were educated in our public school system And you would as far as I'm concerned make a welcome addition to the court from that standpoint as a public school graduate myself So public high school is educate people from all backgrounds and most people go to public schools Most people don't go and get to go to private schools So your classmates probably came from different racial and ethnic backgrounds income social statuses academic abilities athletic abilities among others how if at all has your public school experience shaped the person you are and your approach to the law Thank you senator I was very fortunate to go to public school in Miami Florida I had a wide range of classmates and it was a wonderful opportunity to get to know people who were different than me And to learn at the end of the day that they were not so different That I am Even if they came from different backgrounds and I've talked a lot about my debate team that was one of the activities that I engaged in and spent a lot of time with my colleagues on the debate team and with my wonderful coach And you learn how to support each other how to speak across different how to how to communicate with different kinds of people And it was a wonderful experience and as I've mentioned in many ways different than the generation before who in Florida were segregated by law So I take it that not only did you have I would say a broad experience of encountering people from all different walks of life and backgrounds But there was still commonality that you had Very much so And that is very much exemplified in your approach to your work I also talk with you about the importance of the creative part of our lives Because I think lawyers tend to be very left brain and I know that you are a very well rounded person And so I asked you what do you do to pay attention to the creative side of your life Thank you for the question I took up not too long ago but took up the fiber arts as they say My mother is an expert crochet artist She makes beautiful pieces of all kinds and I always wanted to do that I always wanted to and she tried to teach me when I was younger and it didn't quite turn out But as I have gone along in my career and wanting to have some sort of a creative outlet and especially in times of high stress.

"Let me continue With the federalist piece the relevant law requires a judge to recuse from a case If it's impartiality might reasonably be questioned in 28 USC four 55 a another provision requires a recusal if the judge knows a family member has an interest they could be substantially affected by the outcome of the proceeding So forth same section based on the law standards and past presidents Jenny Thomas political and public policy activities have never in a single instance required justice Thomas to recuse himself from a case Well but Steven Geller says the shut up Well established that a spouse's separate political views or activities are no basis for such a recusal In 2011 judge Stephen Reinhardt boy a left wing icon not of the 9th circuit Court of Appeals properly refused to recuse from a challenge to the constitutionality of proposition 8 regarding same sex marriage even though his wife was the executive director of the American criminal liberties union for Southern California What do you say about that Jane Jane Jane mister producer weren't her parents in a remin Which had filed a brief at the district court level in this case and despite his wife publicly expressing her views on the issue now let me just recap So his wife head of the ACLU and south and Southern California Files a brief in the case that works its way up through the court at the district court level Publicly expressed his reviews And that's not a conflict of interest My wife and I share many fundamental interests by virtue of our marriage he said but have used regarding issues of public significance or our own It can not be imputed to me no matter how prominently expresses them It is her view and I agree that she is the right to perform her professional duties without regard to whatever my views may be and that I should do the same without regards to her But of course he's right It's Perry versus Schwarzenegger 2011 In 2011 but this case with the thomases is even more preposterous Because they do share the views In other words one has had a life of her own The others had a life of their own They come together in marriage They have fundamental agreement on the fundamental issues It's that simple Judge Reinhardt also properly rejected the claim that his wife had an interest under section four 5 5 B even though the organization had filed an amicus brief in the district court for the case now an appeal before him Before him at the time So judge Reinhart demolished every argument from Jane Mayer if that is her name And her so called judicial ethics expert that Jenny Thomas activities are views required justice Thomas to recuse How come this woman is not banned altogether How many chances do you get to be honest In fact Stephen Geller's whom Irish cites as the gold standard for judicial ethics experts and who rips Jenny Thomas for behaving horribly into hurting the Supreme Court in the administration of justice Actually actually that would have been Ruth Bader Ginsburg but what do I know Filed a brief vigorously defending reinhard for not recuse You got that So this guy giller the gold standard They go plated standard if you ask me he filed a brief and defense of Reinhardt You know what he wrote We are long past the day when a wife's opinions are assumed to be the same as her husband His ribs and opinions didn't even share the last name Viewers and public pronouncements as support for the district court decision below do not trigger any reasonable basis to question judge Reinhardt's ability to honor his oath of office A contrary outcome would deem a judge's spouse unable to hold any position of advocacy creating what amounts to a marriage penalty And Mayor is all for it And so she argues literally the client's Thomas should recuse himself in every such case or just leave the court What kind of a numbskull is she Killer's unprincipled and hypocritical attack on Jenny Thomas is permissible conduct and speech is despicable By the way gellers that is his name It must be his name Who the hell wants a name like that Let me tell you something pal You want to come on this show and debate this Let's do it Let's do it What the hell Did Ryan hart also said it's important that judges not recuse themselves unless required to do so Or it would be too easy for those who seek judges favorable to their case to disqualify those they perceived to be unsympathetic Miller by questioning their impartiality So to succumb to mayor's argument would be to institutionalize judge shopping As the late justice Antonin Scalia observed over broad recusal standards would also encourage so called investigative journalists to suggest improprieties and a man recusals for other inappropriate increasingly silly reasons Some mayors smear pieces the embodiment of those concerns And this piece goes on It'll be on our website I want to encourage you to read it He is a partner Mark pauletta at schaefer jaffee He was a lawyer and Bush 41 White House counsel's office He worked on the confirmation of clarence Thomas He also served in the Trump White House as the general counsel The Office of management and budget So he's a smart dude Am I allowed to say dude these days mister producer.
