"You know, how do we create that balance and really the founding of the country? The setup of the system of government itself is all about balance, right? On one hand, you have the judicial system whose balancing you know what the case before it in front of the Constitution. You have the three branches which in theory are designed to balance each other out right so that no one branch has too much power. Right importantly, is the phrase goes to check and balance each other right back in balance each other. So to give you an example Um, my sis, my branch the judiciary. All we can do is issue a judgment a piece of paper that says what we think the law is and you are ordered to do this or that. That's it. We don't have the power of the Chris. We don't have the power of the sword. We depend upon the Congress to fund the judiciary. We depend upon the executive To enforce our judgments. Simple is that take the Congress. It depends upon we can pass the laws, but they depend upon the executive to enforce those laws and they depend upon the judiciary to interpret those laws. They in turn funded. The second executive can't do anything that has Can't do anything for which funds have not been appropriated. Nothing. Well the judiciary is he envisioned that has blossomed into something much larger, much more influential. I think because of somebody disputes being brought to the courts, the courts they're asked to resolve any more legal questions. Then I think every could have been anticipated were much more which changes as the people I think they could to talk. She'll notice that even as early as 18 30 when he visited, he enjoyed the United States. So is grandiose is the legends They kind of judicial? He is compared to what it was at the time, I don't think is grown in in influence or importance beyond proportion more than proportionately to the other branches. The whole government is much greater that not just in size, but in in the terms of what it undertakes, then the framers ever could possibly have anticipated. Now the idea that there would be a National federal government with power any power at all? Not much. But any power at all over education, which is a state and local function would have been unimaginable when they framed the union and some of those encroachments are perfectly legitimate, and others are probably based on a A overly aggressive interpretation of the Constitution. But they're what we have. Yeah, well without it when I want to go to the next case that you wanted to highlight, which is a 1905 case, the state of South Carolina versus the United States. Why? Why is this important? Why should people know about this? Well, the simple point here is that nothing really changed from Marbury versus Madison decided in 18 03. The South Carolina case, two sides of 1905 and I think even into about 1935, but I say nothing changed. It was understood and agreed and enforced by the courts that the Constitution meant We always met. The meaning of the Constitution doesn't change the words don't change except my amendment. The words don't change the meaning doesn't change And we've lost that as a unifying principle, starting with some court decisions in the 19 thirties. That created a debate that's looms large right now, particularly in the courts and in the law schools. And that is how should the Constitution be interpreted, if not, according to how it was understood by the people who wrote it and then agreed to it and ratified it. Then what else? And the alternative? The so called living Constitution basically means whatever the judges think ought to be adjusted to meet with contemporary problems. But that's a complete. I mean, you know, the judiciary is a non democratic branch, right? We're not elected were appointed and our power is Griff circumscribed and should be E think rather tightly. But to say that the that the judges can update the constitution, according to what they were five out of nine Supreme Court justices think is required is to assume any role of policy making, though that belongs to the Congress. Nonetheless, it's happened. I think if you, uh, another rule that first take, we'll see how the debate is framed. Judge Douglas Ginsburg taking a look at the U.

My comment about this certain the Legislature in these states is the only authorized body that's allowed to make changes to the voting laws, Okay? That's protection for the people in the state that what's to prevent the government from waking up one day and gone? You know, I don't like the way this younger crowd's going. And I think I'm gonna change it so that you have to be at least 35 before you can vote and then try and push it through. It's not gonna be valid. Same thing was it was some of these these votes. Well, we're just going to send out a blanket here. We don't know if you're registered to vote. If you actually live there, or whatever. So do you think the Supreme Court will agree to hear this case? I actually think they will. It would not surprise me if they actually do invalidate the electors for those states based on that, just because it takes the pool so much. See, I I do not think they're going to agree to hear this case. That's just Ah, hunch that I have. I think Roberts and the others want no part of it if they have an argument They are obligated to issue a ruling and I know he doesn't want to do that. The wire you a justice, your soul. Being a justice is that you are to rule on constitutional matters. This is a constitutional matter being brought in front of you asking for you to make a rule on otherwise I don't understand why we have a Supreme Court if you're just not going to do your job. And Paxton says This should go directly to the Supreme Court because it is an argument involving state against states and the Constitution calls for those kinds of disagreements to be settled at the Supreme Court. That's what he's arguing that this is part of this is a clear violation of those states laws. Well, it certainly is.

And that's not what what is happening here? We're not telling the state of Pennsylvania how to make their laws. What we're saying is that the U. S Constitution said. If you change things in an election, every single state if you do decide to make changes in your state due to election, it has to go through your state legislation. And we're pointing out that that did not happen in Pennsylvania, in Michigan, in Wisconsin and in Georgia, and so therefore it violates the U. S constitution were not telling these states If they can't go through there a legislation and make those changes down the road. We're too saying they didn't do it for this election. Yes, and in Paxton, it is also arguing that therefore, based on what Melinda just said the electors Selected by those four states have been illegally selected, and that's why he's saying the remedy is let's state lawmakers in those four states pick a new group of electors to take part in the Electoral College. If illegally selected leche electors vote December 14th that nullifies or diminishes the electors from the other states that did it legally. Here is Ken Paxton. We don't know now.

The numbers for you to join us 51283605 90 bright Bart News is reporting the state of Texas viable lawsuit late last night. Against four states over their election rules in the presidential race. Texas has gone directly to the United States Supreme Court. In a lawsuit against Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia. And the heart of the Texas argument is each of those four states. Changed the election rules in a way that go against the U. S Constitution and their own state constitutions by not including the state legislation in making the new rules, so they want the U. S. Supreme Court. To rule that those were unconscious Tutu Schimmel moves and to give state lawmakers in each of those four states. The power to go ahead and appoint the members of their states body to the electoral college. So in Pennsylvania, For example, the Republicans control the Legislature in Texas wins this case, the Republican state lawmakers would pick the electors. Who would vote on December 14th. It would not be based on the vote that occurred that showed Biden in the lead in Pennsylvania. He This one's kind of murky in a sense that you want all of the state's toe have their election integrity there and for them to follow their own rules. I mean, why have the rules if you're gonna overlook them for the same time? But when you start this, and then if the Supreme Court does uphold it in, say, absolutely you have these people that are going to start picking again. You're looking at undermining the election process because then you're gonna have these individuals. Pick which maybe go against what the majority voters. Chose And so that will start people questioning what That's not how people are questioning. Why should I vote? We've got a big problem because we want people to vote. We want people to feel like their voices being heard. I would argue that the secretary of state of Pennsylvania undermines the confidence in the voting with her unilateral decision to change the rules. Without going through the Legislature. That's clearly in violation of the U. S. Constitution and the state Constitution. There's a lot of merit to this Texas case, but it was filed last night. Don't see the U. S. Supreme Court accepting this challenge by Texas and making a ruling at this point they have seven days before the Electric college. December 14th is the date the electoral college meets and votes. Yes, yes, so they would have to act really fast. That's usually not court's biggest biggest thing that they priority is as fastest now. This Texas lawsuit is separate from the one Pennsylvania has filed that Ted Cruz is going to argue. If it's taken up by the Supreme Court, So I know you need a scorecard to keep track of all of these things. But the Texas lawsuit is separate.

It makes us Constitution so different and why it was written just for a time like this. Is that it's very hard to revolutionize and dominate the United States of America. We're very difficult country to dominate because of our inherent De central Non Authoritarian Construct. It takes six years at minimum to take over every single portion of the American government.

I know you call me the doctor Phil of financial cause I was telling you about some of the things that that I go through, and then it is. I mean, basically, we're almost like referees between spouses sometimes or trying to make sure what we're like The trying to talk you out of things you shouldn't do. That would be bad for your money and fancy brochures. Get people into a lot of trouble. We see, especially I've seen this with the real estate investment trust a lot of times very fancy brochures. What money And you don't really understand what you have from the beginning Brochure look good, But I don't understand what you're buying. Then you get yourself into a non traded reet. Non traded means you can't get out once you get in. It has to be tradable. They traded it to you. They sold it, You know that was not traded, So just be very careful. We call that's one of the unidentified financial objects that UFO's that we see a lot of. And when I asked folks, that's why do you, you know, just curious. Why did you put so much money in here with The sales guy was nice, or he's a nice steak dinner. Find fancy brochure brochure. Look good. I said, Do you ever get a second opinion before you did it? No. But so now's the time to get it because maybe it could be savage. Well, maybe you could make some moves to get your money out of there again. But don't put your money in things. You don't understand other things. They're promissory notes. We see a lot of times. Like it's a nice paper. The bonded kind of paper USS Constitution was written on it right. The U.

And it says this is a promise to you to give you certain amount of interest based on the money you put in for whatever for next amount of months. Then it doesn't work like that. Sometimes to be careful for promissory notes. Right. All right. A lot of people get in trouble. Those. Well, I think it but but it is weak. We get drawn him by the by the hype. We get drawn in by the brochures we get drawn in because somebody has a great personality on the radio, Silver and gold. Two Silver gold is a big thing. People make mistakes. I mean, I've got two gold. I've got some silver, but I'm not putting on my retirement in there. Like people being coerced you, Steve, It doesn't make any interest. It just sits there. It could go up and down. It all depends on how much someone wants to pay you for your asset. Like silver Go with you Buy it. You're paying an ask prices call their asking price, and you pay that. But when it comes time to sell, they will only give you the bid Price, which is lower than the asked so you could lose money on that silver ago. Plus, it doesn't generate any interest or income. So first, nothing wrong with having that in your portfolio, But the very first thing we need to do if we're doing a true retirement plan for over 50, we need this 450. We could put together and having more, but we need lifetime income. We need a lifetime income plan that we know with certainty what it's going to be any here. We decide to retire because we don't know how I'm going to retire. Maybe 60 to 70 68. Whatever. But you know, there's a spreadsheet that show you If you retire this age, This is the income you'll get guaranteed for life. I like the sound of you a peace of mind. You can't buy peace of mind you can here, I guess right. So again, you've got the upside potential. When you put the money in there. You've got income flexibility. In other words, you decide when you wanna start taking the income and then you have guaranteed income for life when you activate it, folks have you haven't heard of this And you think you have a retirement plan? You might not. It's your own personal pension. Steve. That's it's up to us nowadays to have our own pension because Four with the four.

"Where heidi's favorite parts of the constitution. Join hands and take center. Stage the due process clause of the fourteenth amendment and unless magical and mysterious amendment of them all amendment nine amendment nine cents being numerous in the constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the Basically the talks about numerator rights just because a right isn't listed in the constitution. It doesn't mean you don't have that right. The fact is there was no way for the framers to put down every single right. We have. I mean that the rights of rusher teeth. Yes you've got it. But how long do we want this document to think about it for a moment. Our constitution doesn't tell you all the rights that you have. Because it doesn't know and i i love that amendment because it it does speak to the like a living breathing nature of document and also. It's a very weird mysterious thing like everything else is rather concrete. And it's very confusing. This amendment justice. William o douglas the great supreme court justice when he talked about amendment nine he used the word panera in griswold versus connecticut. I read about how that case was partially decided. With the help of the ninth amendment as was roe v. wade with this idea that like okay. We don't know given given the tools we have with this constitution. We don't know how to say exactly that. Like a person is entitled to use. Birth control or a person is entitled to have an abortion. So we're gonna located in this right to privacy which is not enumerated in the constitution. Exactly but we're going to say it's like a it's there. It lives there in the shadow of the constitution as a result of other rights that were numerous so it was like this is very murky reasoning. And this this is when william o. Douglas brought out his beautiful pin number. Metaphor this is when he said one thing. Our constitution surely guarantees is the right to privacy and this allows the woman to put an iud d as long as she's married another caveat anyway at this point in the play. Heidi pulls up a clip from the griswold case of the nine justices. All men attempting to discuss birth control probably only two was respected some jammed onto the feminine hygiene and others I i just don't know about but they are. They are all sold. Attic drugstores on one theory or another anything on the record to indicate your states that don't have shown laws it's like four hours of that. It was more like two hours. But still i really found it fascinating that that first of all the justices who at the time were nine men had to look to this amendment that nobody really understands and decide that they found you. Know the right to birth control or the right for a pregnant person to have tony over their own body that they found that in this in the shadows of the constitution like us in this like murky murky space a murky space that leaves so much room for interpretation which many argue is the very genius of our constitution. The intentional vagaries allow for flexibility. But this very nature of the document may at times protect its citizens but at other times it fails them leaving some of our basic rights hanging in the balance and with the recent election and the new makeup of the supreme court. That unknown feels all the more present ringing in our ears. We're all living in this murky space right. we're all. it's time when the future is very uncertain. It's a time when we are struggling with like who we are as a country who we are as people what our relationship is to one another what. Our responsibilities are to one another Everything feels very confusing right now and i do think that it does feel like we're living in a moment where where it's hard to see. Clearly people laughed at douglas for calling in this. But i like it. I think it's helpful way to think about the constitution and also maybe about our lives. I mean here. We are stuck between what we can see and what we can't. We are.

Thank you for inviting me polly. Let us begin with you recently. Wrote a great piece for the Atlantic National Constitution centers battled for the Constitution website. It's called a corona virus quarantine in America could be giant legal mess. And you tell us about the history and Law of federal and state efforts to impose quarantines. Let's begin the state picture you right as a legal matter the. Us Supreme Court recognized a seemingly unlimited local power to quarantine as early as eighteen. Twenty four in the case of gibbons and Ogden. Tell us about that famous constitutional law case what it held and what kind of quarantines state and local governments imposed at the time of the founding leading up to get US gibbons the arden is not really about quarantines. It's one of the few instances though early on where the Supreme Court has mentioned the police powers of the state as including Corentin and quarantine and isolate. Those are some of the oldest tools in the public health law. Public Health Book and it in terms of the colonies would practice isolation. The early states practiced isolation local governments. This was just a an assumed power that they have had an from our history going all the way back to even before givens versus Ogden. It's been recognized to be a local authority a local power after the revolution and under the new constitution. It's continued to be recognized as primarily state responsibility and estate power as you say not mainly about quarantines but it's it's well known to first year of constitutional law students in gibbons. The Supreme Court struck down in New York law that gave exclusive navigation rights to individuals for the waters of New York and in the course of the opinion the court rejected the state's argument that the federal government government's previous assistance in enforcing New York quarantine regulations signified a federal approval of those laws. Instead the court said Congress only directs officers of government to obey state quarantine laws but doesn't pretend or attempts to legalize them. Ed What can you tell us about the history of the founding era quarantines? What kind of Quarantines did states assert. And what is the givens case? Say about any limits that there may be to local and state power. Well I actually start much earlier than that. Blackstone recognizes the importance of quarantine. It was one of the major felonies. If you broke the corn teen punishment could be death. Our notion of of quarantine comes from. I believe the Italian or one of the Italian dialects for forty days when ships would come in and they thought there might be plague on board they would keep them out in the harbor for a prolonged period. This has been part of life since people started traveling and STA and lived in cities The colonies were heavily. Engaged in what we'd see US public health They didn't have police forces so police power meant public health. In those periods the colonies were also basically favor ridden swamps. The city's reports. They had malaria. They had yellow fever. The typhoid cholera The average life expectancy was probably twenty five years in the city's so these were places where they were very familiar with these powers. Philadelphia lost ten percent of its population one summer from yellow fever outbreak. There were later outbreaks in Philadelphia and the other cities. So we're thinking about the powers. I don't think the constant givens viag done in the early constitutional cases are really as good a reflection. Is this long sweep of history. These were very deeply inculturated into the society. There are not many Supreme Court cases directly on the point because the law was so ist well established that no one would have thought to challenge it. We often lose track with very well established law that you don't tend to see cases and then subsequent scholars will sometimes believe you don't have law until the court has created the law public health. We have this long sweep. We had a period where people died of communicable diseases. I think the key reference point for me is that jurists prudentially public health cases and national security cases. Were one in the same. During the founding period smallpox epidemics plagues were seen as dangerous as invasions. Let's as a test case talk about the yellow fever epidemics of a late nineteenth century and the history of Shotgun Quarantines Apollo. You've written an article on precisely that question epidemics outsiders and local protection federalism theater in the era of shotgun quarantines these epidemics which took place in the south starting around eighteen. Seventy five culminated in the Supreme Court. Case that maybe most on point. That's the one thousand nine hundred zero five Jacobsen case which upheld Massachusetts power to impose mandatory vaccination so tell us about the history of shotgun quarantines and the significance of the Jacobson case of holding those vaccinations throughout the late nineteenth century. The South was periodically visited with yellow fever. Usually coming in through ports starting in New Orleans Pensacola other southern ports and some of these were horrific in terms of the loss of life and they instilled a lot of fear in people. The these win the first report of yellow fever might or just a rumor might appear further. North many cities towns counties. Even states would throw up what quarantines they didn't call them shotgun quarantines the press at the time called them shotgun quarantines. They were to keep people out. They did not want the infection moving further north. Now keep in mind. They didn't know how it spread. Keep in mind. Also that at this point the federal government doesn't have complete control over port quarantines so the yellow fever episodes in the late nineteenth century the first time that Congress debated and it did so on. Several occasions debated weather. The federal authorities should have control over interstate quarantine. It was clear that as a national defense matter that at least keeping it outside of the country could be a federal responsibility was a federal responsibility but the question became what about in the interior. Can THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HELP? Could it could lift some of these quarantines and they ended up with a statute the eighteen ninety epidemic diseases act. As far as I can tell. It's the first time that it adds to the federal government's quarantine authority the ability to a win to enforce such regulations as are necessary to prevent the introduction transmission or spread of communicable disease from one state into any other. And that's not really been tested before but for more than one hundred years. The federal government has been given by Congress the Authority to help in terms of when there is a communicable disease that threatens to spread from one state into any other state. Thanks very much for that and for you really important. History of the yellow fever epidemic. At tell us about the Jacobson case and whether there are any limits on state power just to review the facts in a holding it was a seven to two majority from Nineteen Zero Five Cambridge Massachusetts was held to be able to find residents who refused to get smallpox injections. There'd been a smallpox epidemic in nineteen. A one hundred zero to pastor. Henning Jacobsen. Said he'd been injured by these previous vaccines. There were really dangerous and he refused to be vaccinated and paid a fine and the US Supreme Court in an opinion by justice. John Marshall Harlan rejected arguments holding that the good and welfare of the Commonwealth of which the legislature is primarily. The judge is the basis on which the police power rests in Massachusetts. This rests Harlan. Said on the principle of self defense of paramount necessity community has the right to protect itself against an epidemic of disease which threatens the safety of its members but Harlan did end by saying. We're not inclined to hold that the statute establishes an absolute rules in an adult must be back stated if it'd be a parent or can be shown with reasonable certainty. He was not at the time. A fit subject of vaccination vaccination by reason of his then condition would seriously impair his health or probably caused his death so with that statement of facts and holding. Are there any limits to what state can do in the wake of Jacobson and tell us more about the history leading up to it? Well I can certainly talk about Jacobsen. But there's actually an earlier directly on point Supreme Court case on State Corn Teens Cap'n gay Francois de navigation a VP. Or versus the Board of Health of State of Louisiana which is a nineteen ninety two Supreme Court case In that case the state quarantine power was directly at issue. Which is the this is the Louisiana and the Board of Health was establishing quarantines and court on Santa Tares and they were attacked or various grounds The State Supreme Court found they were constitutional and this went up to the US Supreme Court which then endorsed the state actions and in fact referred back to the Seventeen Ninety Nine Public Health Service Act which recognized the power of the state and the role of the federal government and supporting the states. The role of the Public Health Service hospitals as part of the quarantine for ships coming in so in this case we really see the Fed. The Supreme Court directly addressing the broad state police powers Jacobsen is the case where the Supreme Court really addresses the core issue in public health law. Which is the right of the state to endanger the individual For the benefit of society the Fundamental Difference Between Public Health Law and Personal Health Services Law. Medical Care Law is that medical care laws about the individual and we have informed consent and we worry about autonomy and most of the modern scholarship tends to come from that direction public health laws about the protection of the state..
