"Now, using a new APP for covert 19 contact, tracing President Trump held a campaign rally in Pittsburgh. Most of the crowd without masks and recapping our top story, the Nation Canal pay its tribute and its respects to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Gator Bater Ginsberg. She lies in repose of the U. S. Supreme Court. All that's ahead in the next 15 minutes. Good morning. I'm Brandon Brooks fill cases at the editor's desk. More on our top story now. Ruth Bader Ginsburg lying in repose of the Supreme Court. CBS NEWS White House correspondent Stephen Portnoy joined us live this morning to talk about the details of this week's tributes to the late Justice Stephen Good Morning. So what's the What's the scene in Washington this morning? What's it look like? There's black bunting. On the frame of the door that leads into the Supreme Court chamber. And as per tradition dating back to the late 18 hundreds, there is black bunting on the chair next to the chief justice, where Justice Ginsburg sat that bunting will stay there for some time, even though the court well, the court will actually holds its first session less than two weeks. First Monday in October, the Justice League justice will, of course, as you probably have heard lie in state at the Capitol on Friday, and what's interesting is and it's hard to believe this, but Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be the first woman to lie in state at the Capitol. Not the first woman to lie in honor at the capital. You may be wondering what's the distinction. Rosa Parks lay in honor at the capital. After she passed the differences, government officials lie in state When their bodies are placed in a place of honor in the capital, and that's the difference. Rosa Parks was not a government official. Rithmetic Ginsberg Wass Stephen, Let's head onto the campaign trail for a moment. The president campaigning in Pittsburgh last night. What you have to say I was with the president last night in Pittsburgh is rally there before hundreds of people at the airport in Pittsburgh, one of several stops the president is making this week vastly out, travelling his rival Joe Biden. And the president made light of Biden's wearing of a mask, he joked. He said, I wonder if next week's debate will Biden be wearing a mask, and he talked about how the maths sometimes falls off Biden's ear. He made a crack about how Biden has had plastic surgery, which we don't know to be true, and why would you wear a mask to cover it up? After spending all that money? The president said. The crowd laughed and aided up nearly entirely massless crowd. Say for the people who are positioned behind the president on the risers so that they could be seen on television wearing Maga masks, But on the whole, I'd say upwards and upwards of 95% of the people in the crowd. We're not wearing masks, and the president says he'll announce his choice to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the high court Saturday at 5 P.m..

"supreme court chamber" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell

"Of Ruth Bader Ginsburg I would assume that as president of planned parenthood, you might have been in the room in the Supreme Court chamber sometime seeing Justice Ginsburg inaction. Absolutely, Lawrence and advice I. Remember I had really just started a planned parenthood when there was a major abortion rights case before the court and. At the time dark justice is was the only woman on the court. So you can imagine this barely hundred pound five foot woman sitting there with all these men representing an entire gender basically carrying us all on her shoulders and she was more than up to the task, but it was really extraordinary to hear men talking about the most intimate personal details of women's private medical decisions and Justice Ginsburg, of course, we lost that decision and she wrote a scathing dissent at she was amazing and of course, it was great to go back and see her on the court with a certain sort of your and Elena Kagan three about were a fierce beers trio and they they. They made all the difference. CECILE, I've spent every year on this program trying to get people to concentrate on the supreme court as a reason to be voting for president. This is a tragic way to get that focus, but it seems the focus has finally arrived. Especially on the democratic side we have new polling showing that a more Democrats now than four years ago believed that it's very important a very important issue. It's up to sixty, six percent of Democrats and. Fewer Republicans. It has dropped as an important issue for Republicans. It's gone from seventy down to sixty one. So the sense of urgency on this issue seems to be on the Democratic side this year possibly for the first time. I Agree Lawrence and of course, at Super Majority, we've been totally focused on women voters and it's it's hard to imagine women were already on fire about the total failure of this administration to deal with a pandemic about the fact that they can't send their kids back to school. They've been on the front lines of providing care as healthcare workers but now the loss of Justice Ginsburg and actually the treatment that Mitch McConnell. Didn't even miss a beat by immediately moving. To talk about her replacement, the disrespected shown by this by the United States. Senate. Leadership Women are so on fire it's amazing and of course, we're already seeing polling that live in suburban women are against Donald Trump by more than thirty points and they understand what's at stake in the Supreme Court not only of course, the right to safe and legal abortion, which would seventeen cases coming after this court but a week after the election five days after the election, this court will be hearing the the the case that would essentially overturn the affordable care act and. Potentially twenty million people in this country losing your health insurance women understand that and they're organizing and they are voting and they're going to be the dominant voters this November, the I believe that one of the reasons Mitch McConnell rushed his statement about this was because he was worried that he didn't have the votes and he had to alert his Republican members. Were make that declaration we're going to be voting on this. That's right now and look he doesn't have the votes yet so. Acknowledge that a couple of the women in the United. States. Senate on the Republican side have. Has. said that they won't vote for a replacement that it should be for the next president. But this is extraordinary to see when the Senate that has dealt with any of the problems that people care about now. With record unemployment and lack of healthcare access this pandemic, and yet they can rush back just to fill a supreme court vacancy the. Rank and women see it. Sue Richards. Thank you very much for joining us again tonight. Good to see you lawrence make you. Well Lindsey Graham says, we should hold his words against him and who better to do that than Democratic nominee for Senate in South Carolina who's running against Lindsey Graham Jamie Harrison joins US next. Hi Everyone. It's joy Reid.

"With even cleaner planes. Jeff Brady. NPR NEWS This is NPR. The U. S House is preparing to vote on a plan to remove statues from the capital of historical figures linked to slavery and the Confederacy. NPR's Joe Snyder reports on the vote scheduled for this afternoon. The bill the house is set to vote on would remove nearly a dozen statues of people who voluntarily served the Confederacy. It would also remove a bust of Roger B. Taani from the old Supreme Court chamber. Taani was the chief justice who wrote the majority opinion in the 18 57 Dread Scout decision. Bill calls for his bus to be replaced with a bust of Thurgood Marshall, the first African American to serve as a Supreme Court justice. NPR's journal Snyder reporting. The State Department's internal watchdog, has been asked to review and alleged request made by President Trump to his top diplomat in London. U. S. Ambassador Woody Johnson reportedly told colleagues of President Trump asked him to check with the UK to see if they could help move the lucrative British Open tournament to Trump's Turnberry Golf resort in Scotland. NPR's Frank Langfitt has the latest from London. When Johnson told colleagues about Trump's request, they advised against it because of the ethical problems of advancing the president's business interests. But Johnson went ahead and raised Turnberry hosting the open with David Mandel, then the secretary of state for Scotland, according to a source with knowledge of the meeting. Mandel declined to discuss the meeting and referred The New York Times, which broke the story to a statement from the British government. The Johnson quote made no request of Mr Mandel regarding the British Open or any other sporting event. Claims have been forwarded to the State Department's inspector general. The State Department said it stands by Johnson and that he has led the embassy honorably. Frank Langfitt. NPR NEWS, London This is NPR. Support for NPR comes from NPR stations.

"So. We told you earlier about this big case. The Supreme Court decided to add to the docket later this year. A case that could conceivably invalidate the entire affordable. Care Act rallied. Yesterday there was a different healthcare case in front of the court about abortion and this was really an even more pressing matter in the sense that this will be decided in just a matter of months. Abc senior Washington reporter Devon Dwyer was there at the court has justices heard these arguments and I remember when this case was brought people said on one hand. Is this huge? Because it's got big implications for abortion rights on the other hand the court already ruled Unin identical case right. So why was this being argued at all ever just four years ago? The Supreme Court struck down a Texas admitting privileges law requiring doctors who perform abortions to be able to get their patients in the hospitals within thirty miles of the clinics means every time. I WANNA walk into an abortion selling our nation. She's going to have to wonder. Will I be coming out alive? The implications of stretch far beyond Texas about two dozen states have similar laws alone behold the at the time passed a nearly identical law. Law was upheld and so the justice at the Supreme Court took it up taking a second look at a nearly identical issues of the question is what chain in a five three decision. Justice Kennedy. The swing vote joined the courts for liberals to rule that the restrictions went too far justice. Anthony Kennedy the famous swing vote. Who decided that case is no longer there. And so this is the first test on abortion For the two conservative justices appointed by president trump. And this new conservative majority. Oh so this. Is this conceivably if there was a conservative majority? That was going to overturn precedent from just a couple of years ago. This would be the court to do it. What what was the sense you got from these justices? As they heard the arguments I was in the courtroom yesterday Brad and right out of the gate the abortion rights group. That was challenging. This Louisiana Law went straight to precedent for years ago. After the we the Anna Today. Very little baffled. The guy in the Middle Brad is chief justice John Roberts. We know that he is supportive. Of the idea of precedent. We also know that he can be something of a broker now on this new corps and he was openly grappling yesterday with this question of how far these admitting privileges laws and the courts Texas decision of just four years ago should apply. We didn't keep this this litigation because we wanted to divide president kept it going because everything about our cases. Different is any hospital. Admitting privileges law for abortion unconstitutional. Do they all create undue burdens? Or is there a chance that the facts in each case state by State Merit special consideration? So one thing we could see the court do is Send this back to a lower court to perhaps review the Louisiana Law in light of Sort of a more modest ruling a middle ground if you will signalling to all these states that we've seen line up over the past year with new regulations that they need to tailor them in a certain way to pass muster at the court and despite the complications doesn't sound that complicated to the ears of Democrats had Chuck Schumer essentially saying this is just this. Just them trying to essentially try a new case with better judges. Yeah anytime abortion comes at the Supreme Court. It is explosive. My name is renee bracy sharpen. We saw that yesterday at times in the Supreme Court Chamber which was packed members of Congress at the Front row representatives from planned parenthood representatives from right to life movements. All packing this room ask. The argument was going on Brad. The top Democrat in the US Senate Chuck Schumer of New York was out on the front steps of the Supreme Court calling out the conservative justices by name. I want to tell you I wanna tell you Kevin off. You have released the long wind and you will pay the price in those comments Brad. In extraordinary public direct response from the chief justice himself just hours after the argument concluded he put on paper statement. Rebuking Schumer for those comments calling them. A direct attack on Sydney members of the core. Schumer's office tells. Abc News that he was simply referring to Republicans their Senate Republicans. They're the ones that will pay the price in November. And you'll never be able to do what you're trying to do now ever ever again here that over there on the far right you're gone in November as you will but it is unmistakable. His words used the word you quite a few times and talking about those two members of the court and of course president trump himself has also criticised justices also by name. But he's also been swatted at not quite as directly by Chief Justice John Roberts before. But it's John Roberts. China play referee in all of this desert wire. Thanks so much. They spread and one last thing you know. Instagram Kinda pulled a snapchat when it introduced stories. Well then it's parent facebook instagram. I guess as did what's APP and Youtube. Even dating APPs tried something like this will now. Twitter is trying to pull up all of them. That's right. Twitter is testing out stories feature little snapshots of your day. That will go away within twenty four hours. They're called fleets get it. They're like tweets but more anyway the idea is you'll have your twitter feed but then at the top you'd see little circles that look just like instagram stories of those your fleets which weird here is all those other services. I mentioned pictures and videos thing right. Well here it's mainly just quick messages. And what world do you WanNa see an even more temporary version of someone's twitter post? I'm glad you asked because critics of said look at the problem with twitter right now. It's not that it's too temporary is that it's too easy to get harassed by strangers will here. You'd have a new way to potentially make quick thoughts accessible to a smaller universe of people your actual friends although there's another thing at work here too because in a culture where more people are deleting their tweets wary of getting canceled. Will now this new service being tested in Brazil it? I will do that for you. Here's my issue like. I follow friends on Instagram and facebook. I WanNa see their stories.

"From NPR news this is All Things Considered I am Elsa Chang and a merry that was Kelly as the Senate impeachment trial nears a final vote the man at the center who continues to make news probably despite his best intentions is the Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts and her legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg joins me now I need to you you had predicted he would keep a very low profile he has kept a low profile but you know the Chief Justice makes almost a fetish of being well prepared he never makes a public appearance here he has not prepared some kind of delightful historical story this exactly on point and even in the Supreme Court chamber he tries to keep borders so that to make sure that the lawyers get a chance to answer one justice the question before another one pile sign and watching him during the impeachment trial it seems he's not seeking the limelight but he's not afraid of it either so last week at roughly one in the morning of a very late night when he had two major adversaries from the trial before him spitting nastiness he intervened and here's what he said in the nineteen oh five swing trial of senator objected when one of the managers use the word petty fogging and the presiding officer said the word ought not to have been used I don't think we need to see a spire to that higher standard but I do think those addressing the Senate should remember where they are I remember me and I was hosting live coverage at that moment and you could hear the room falls silent and Broadway well what what is pretty **** making false claims yes this got harder from there yeah things got hotter when senator rand Paul this week trying to get and I'm proving conspiracy into the record sent up a question to the desk for the Chief Justice to read naming a person who Paul said could be the whistle blower and here's what happened the presiding officer declines to read the question as submitted what was your take on that moment in a do you think John Roberts was surprised by us attempt no I think he'd undoubtedly thought of somebody's and try to do this he relies enormously on the parliamentarian they were ready for this the identity of the whistle blower is protected by the whistle power protection act as you well know Mary Louise and if that individual is a member of the intelligence community there other laws that make it illegal to reveal his identity said they were ready which does not mean that senator Paul was happy now how this played out he was very unhappy agitated stormed out of the Senate chamber abandoning his post as a juror to hold a press conference in which he said that Roberts made an incorrect ruling he said the question had nothing to do with the whistle blower and then proceeded to read aloud the name of an individual so a couple of the more dramatic moments were recite John Roberts step in here but we reported his objective in overseeing this trial was I need to protect Supreme Court that's exactly right but he also is the face of the judiciary the third branch of government and he's a graceful wearer of that crown so while I think he likely thought the question that I'm about to play for you was an attempt at intimidation he had a total poker face when he read it question from senator Warren is for the house managers at a time when large majorities of Americans have lost faith in government does the fact that the Chief Justice is presiding over impeachment trial in which Republican senators have thus far refused to allow witnesses or evidence contribute to the loss of legitimacy of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and the constitution and way way smarter than warrants question is the answer that came immediately from Adam Schiff the lead house manager Sarah I would not say that it contributes to loss of confidence in the Chief Justice I think the chief justice's presided admirably in other words don't ask such a foolish question so headline do you think he will come out of this reputation unscathed yeah I think so I was in pure legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg thank you need thank you nurses in Hong Kong are threatening to go on strike if the city doesn't shut its border with mainland China some nurses have already engaged in an authorized sick outs to protest what they say is a lack of action by Hong Kong officials to address the new coronavirus outbreak as NPR's Jason Beaubien reports in Hong Kong hospitals in the city are scrambling to set UP isolation wards and are already overwhelmed the Truman public hospital in the north west of Hong Kong currently isn't treating any confirmed cases of the new coronavirus several cases have been diagnosed here but they've all since been transferred to the hospital authorities infectious disease center at prince Margaret hospital despite this Albert Huang a physician at two in morn says the outbreak is forcing people to work overtime and causing staff incredible levels of stress there are dozens of suspected cases here right now we don't know which of them will be the next confirmed case and that is part of the issue and secondly there are new cases almost every day

U.S. justices watch their language as they consider profane trademarks

"Chain at the supreme court today. The issue was bad language, specifically can the government refused to grant trademark protection for brand names that include profanity the immediate problem for the court was how to discuss the issue without using the actual words how to discuss the F word, for instance, without actually saying the F word, which is a challenge that NPR Legal Affairs correspondent Nina totenberg faces in this report at the center of the case is a casual clothing line marketed under the name FU CT view can pronounce it yourself the line designed by Erik Brunetti is mainly hoodies loose pants shorts and tee shirt all with those letters prominently displayed Brunetti opened his line in nineteen ninety aimed at twenty somethings. He's been trying since then to get his brand. Trademark so that he can go after copycats go to EBay and you'll see lots of counterfeits to Amazon you'll see a lot lots of counterfeits in short. He says the knockoffs are costing him money. If I win I will pursue the counterfeiters to stop them for making my product the US government patent and trademark office. However has consistently turned him down contending that those letters violate the federal statute the bars trademark protection for immoral shocking. Offensive and scandalous word Brunetti case got a boost two years ago when the supreme court ruled that an Asian American band calling itself the slant could not be denied trademark protection. Because it used a disparaging term dealing with the brand name F C CT proved a bit more daunting in the supreme court chamber today deputy solicitor general Malcolm Stewart referred to it as quote, a profane past participle form of a well-known word of profanity and perha-. The Pera dig Matic word of profanity in our language the government. He maintained can deny trademark protection for that word. The justices pointed to a chart showing which terms if it granted trademarks by the government, and which head not most are not suitable for a general audience suffice to say that while few CT did not win trademark approval. FC UK did. And so did the well known Brin foo bar the word crap was registered trademark name seventy times. But the S word was consistently denied so Justice Ginsburg asked how does the trademark office define what is scandalous shocking or offensive do twenty year olds generally find f you see t to be shocking or scandalous, probably not see the government Stewart. But he said the term would still be shocking or offensive to a substantial segment of the population. Justice scores such pointed to the chart declaring that it was hard. To see why certain trademarks with dirty words were approved and others were denied Justice Alito asked what would happen? When really dirty words were at issue and how about racial slurs. S Justice prior those are more like swearwords their insults that sting remembered by those who are targeted Stewart replied that. Because of course decision in the slants case most racial slurs are now approved, but as for the most offensive slur the N word for now, it's still out representing F U C T designer Brunetti lawyer John summer didn't have an easy time. Either Justice briar, why isn't the government have the right to say you can use this language in your brand name. But the government doesn't want to be associated with it. By granting trademark protection. What I'm worried about? He said is that if a racial slur is trademarked, it will appear as a product name on every bus where it's advertised it'll be on newsstands where children and others will see it. That's not the audience. Mr. Brunetti is appealing to replied lawyer summer chief Justice Roberts. But that may not be the only audience he reaches lawyer summer return to the language of the statute arguing that if offensiveness is the standard for turning down a trademark steak and shake can't be registered either. Because quote, a substantial portion of Americans believe that eating beef is immoral decision. And the case is expected by

His appeal reaches back into painful American history is lawyers say he should never have been tried in Oklahoma state courts because he is creek Indian on historic creek land, which the United States granted native nations in the eighteen hundreds creeks agree, saying that only creek courts federal courts can rule their lawyers before the court raised a sweeping question of who can enforce the law or make law or even collect taxes for many people across half of an American state. Let's start with NPR's Nina totenberg in the supreme court chamber, lawyers representing the state said that when Oklahoma became a state that automatically stripped the tribe of its land rights lawyers for the. Tribe said that the supreme court has long recognized reservation boundaries unless they're explicitly revoked by congress something that congress decided not to do when it lasts considered Oklahoma's Indian territory in one thousand nine hundred six the court seem caught between its own prior rulings and the practicalities of the matter Justice Alito, how can it be that? None of this was recognized by anybody or asserted by the creek nations for one hundred years Justice briar. There are one point eight million people living in this area. They've built their lives on municipal regulations property law dog related law. If we say this land belongs to the tribe. What happens to all those people all those laws that's NPR's, Nina totenberg, and by the way, the area being discussed here. Includes large city, Tulsa, Oklahoma, the principal chief of the Muskogee creek nation was in the courtroom and James Floyd is with us now in our studios. Good morning. Good morning.
