Jennifer Medina Can't Live With Rep. Mayra Flores' Truthful Responses
"In an interview in her still barren office writes this so called reporter Jennifer Medina the day after her swearing in ceremony miss Flores was asked whether she considered mister Biden the legitimately elected president No notice they never asked Democrats if they considered Trump the legitimately elected president in 2016 Or bush in 2000 Now what about Stacey Abrams She's not pressed about the legitimately elected governor of Georgia Kemp He's the worst president of the United States She said when asked three more times whether mister Biden had been legitimately elected she repeated the same non answer Biden there was fraud There's no question That there was fraud There's been fraud in every presidential election But in many respects this was worse From a constitutional perspective as I said over and over and over again Because article two was violated Republican state legislatures were overruled and election laws were changed by elected supreme courts Other state judges Democrat governors Democrat attorneys general democratic secretaries of state and so forth
What the Reactions to Clarence Thomas Post-Roe Reveal About White Libs
"What the reactions to clarence Thomas post roe reveal about white liberals I said wait a minute where did this come from Columbia University Sociology department Which is like the sociology department you know the university of Beijing or the university of Moscow And they say here soon after the court handed down its decision in row that is the Dobbs case Some pro choice advocates began hurling outrageous and overtly racist remarks of the justice By Musa our carbide and Paul F Lars fell There were 6 Supreme Court Justices who voted to overturn roe versus wade they said The majority opinion was authored by justice Sam Alito But in the aftermath of the ruling there has been an intense and particular focus on a different justice Clarence Thomas soon after the court handed down its decision some pro choice advocates began hurling outrageous and overtly racist remarks In Thomas's direction including liberal evocations of the N word on Twitter Often to the acclaim of some other left aligned whites

Kim Kardashian: 'Fourth of July Has Been Cancelled'
"So Kim Kardashian right You also have someone like her she shared a post on her Instagram story That read this it said 4th of July has been canceled due to the shortage of independence sincerely women Obviously a response to the Supreme Court's ruling of overturning roe versus wade But I was thinking this about that shouldn't a woman who became a billionaire because of a sex tape be a little bit more grateful Like how many countries can you do that And also isn't that sort of an indictment on our society that someone like her could become a billionaire Because of a sex tape This says a lot about our country right there But what we're saying is this cultural reinforcement of hatred for America Not patriotism for America Hatred for America We saw it when the city of Orlando tweeted this out they said a lot of people probably don't want to celebrate our nation right now We can't blame them When there is so much division hate and unrest why on earth would you have a party celebrating it It went on to say yes America is in stray right now but you know what We already bought the fireworks So why the heck not more or less It's about the fireworks not about what a country stands for

When Egregious Injustice Occurs, You Can't Just 'Move On'
"In the last segment, I talked about how the Supreme Court might be taking the view that one can't do very much about the past election, but the court might take steps to tighten up the process, bring it more in line with the constitution for the 2024 election. But I think that we shouldn't take the view that 2020 is in the rearview mirror and that somehow this is something that we need to quote move on from. Yes, in the end, we do have to move on, but I think we don't want to move on without some reckoning of what happened in 2020. And I came to this view really not initially, but after I did all the work I did both to do the movie 2000 meals and the accompanying book, which by the way comes out at the end of August, you can pre order it now on Amazon, it's called well. You guessed it. 2000 meals, but there's a little tag that says the full story why because there's going to be more in the book than there was in the movie. Now, initially when I began work, went through the vote, Debbie and I did. I took the view that look, we want to make a movie that's going to tell the truth, about 2020, and we want to try to fix things in the future, but it never crossed my mind that we want to do anything about 2020 itself. And yet, the more I dug into it, the more I realized, well, if a grievous injustice has been done, then you can't simply quote move on. Think about I mentioned this example other times the Tour de France. If Lance Armstrong cheated 7 or 8 times to win, she did during the Olympics. Well, I mean, don't you take away the guy's medals? You just say, let's fix the Tour de France for the next round, so it doesn't happen again, let line scores have his glory. No, we want to deprive him of the fruit of the cheating.
Could the Supreme Court Radically Reshape Elections?
"People sometimes ask me, what is the impact? Of a documentary like 2000 meals going to be. What can you reasonably expect from a film that is, after all, a film? Well, as it turns out, with something like this, particularly when a film breaks out when it begins to be seen by a lot of people, when it begins to become an understood term in and of itself. You don't have to explain what 2000 meals is. You just invoke it and people kind of know what you're referring to. Is it has a reach, kind of like dropping a stone into a pond, the ripple is actually flow pretty far out. And sometimes in ways difficult to anticipate. So here we go, the Supreme Court, just announced on Thursday. This was before signing out and taking off. The Supreme Court said, we're going to take a case in the next session. Now this is a session that we'll have a little bit of a different court, right? Breyer will be off. Jackson will be on. And but this is a case involving elections. And the case of the Supreme Court is going to decide is who makes the rules governing elections. Now, let's turn to the constitution. The constitution says that the time and the place and the manner of election shall be quote prescribed in each state by the legislature thereof. And the constitution says, almost exactly the same thing with regard to presidential electors. So the constitution is in a sense very clear. There's only one group that decides elections and that is in each of the individual 50 states. It's the legislature of those states. So you might think, well, isn't that the way it is now? And the answer is no. We have a kind of complex process in many states. In which a mixture of legislators, yes, but election administrators state judges are calling the shots and this was particularly true in the 2020 election. You had all kinds of people making decisions about voter ID laws, about absentee ballots, about drop boxes, about signature matching, about deadlines for receiving absentee and mail in ballots, for where drop boxes should go. In many cases, these issues would decided without lawmakers having any say at
The Supreme Court's EPA Ruling Was the Beginning of Something Bigger
"In the Supreme Court's recent EPA decision, this was a West Virginia versus EPA, the issue front and center was the ability of the EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency to use the broad rubric of the clean air act. Cleaning up the air. To somehow wipe out the coal industry impose prohibitive regulations that would cause essentially called companies to go completely out of business. And proceed from there on the basis that this was a crusade that the EPA would lead to take on climate change. And the Supreme Court basically said, no, that's not something the EPA has any congressional authority to do. The actual clean air act was passed on the Nixon 1971, I believe. No one was even talking about climate change. That wasn't the delegation of authority. And so if Congress wants to make new laws that deal with climate change, that's a separate issue. They can. But the EPA can't just take it upon itself to launch this kind of a
What Ever Happened to the Abortion Leaker?
"After issuing a series of landmark rulings on a whole bunch of issues from guns to abortion, religious freedom, the Supreme Court is now in recess until October. And so they have decamped. I won't say they're all out of town, but they're, in a sense, not working. And it got me thinking, what about that abortion leak? What happened to the leaker? How come we don't know the identity of the leaker? Well, as it turns out, it doesn't look like we may ever know. And this is really strange. I mean, first of all, is it that hard to find the leaker? Were they able to find the leaker, but are now concealing the identity of the leaker for some reason? And then in some ways, the intriguing question that the leak come from the left or from the right.
An Update on What's Happening in the Wake of Roe v. Wade
"What's happening in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to overrule roe versus wade? Well, the first thing to notice is that no cataclysm has occurred. And for people who warned that this decision would produce a kind of social catastrophe that people would be going nuts, our social fabric itself would be rendered. And to be honest, I myself expected a more stormy reaction when the group called James revenge said, you know, that's going to be a night of rage. I thought, well, that could be, you know, a week of rage. Two weeks of rage, as it turns out there was nothing. Well, I mean, they were a few protests. And there are some protests, even now the left is trying to intimidate these justices. Let's go protest right outside their homes. By the way, I'm happy to say Congress has passed a law Biden signed it to increase security for the Supreme Court Justices and so there are some obviously First Amendment rights about being able to protest, but it's a different matter when you are protesting in a manner that intimidates these justices at their residences itself.
Dinesh Reflects on a July 4 'Anti-Party' Organized by the Left
"The philosopher Edmund Burke once said the love of our country our country should be lovely. Now, I think what work is getting at is he was making the point that while we love our country in part because it is ours. I mean, we love our country sort of for the same reason we love our kids. They are ours. But at the same time, our kids can be sometimes unlovable. And the same can be true of one's country. And I was thinking about all this in the wake of the July 4th holiday. The Democrats were promoting an event in Arizona, which was literally called F the fourth F the fourth. And the event was evidently put on by some women's group that Tucson women's march, but it was being promoted by the pima county Democratic Party. And then when Republicans got a hold of it and said, basically, look how anti American these people are. They won't even celebrate a national holiday. In fact, they want to they're using all these obscenities and connection with it. The pima county people deleted the tweet, but they said, listen, we're deleting the tweet because we think that being the name of the event is in poor taste. From the meme is in poor taste, but we support the event. And interestingly, in the event, the women's March people said, in effect, bring your shoes, water, lawn chairs, posters, and your anger and your anger. So this appears to be in part over the Supreme Court overturning the road decision. And in a strange way, it's also a grudging acknowledgment that the Supreme Court in doing this was affirming the principles of the founding because why else would you say F before you say after fourth because you think the founding principles themselves are bad? After all, if you thought that the court was usurping, it's authority. And if you thought that the court was misreading the constitution and misreading the Declaration of Independence and then you would, you would affirm the fourth. And accused the Supreme Court of betraying the true principles of the founding, but no, I think the left realizes they don't like those
What Decade Is America Living In?
"We keep talking about what year we're back in. The Texas Supreme Court late Friday night allowed a 1925 law banning abortion to take effect overturning a lower court ruling that a temporarily blocked it in Texas. That meant a 1925 law written before roe, which had banned abortions and punished those who performed them with possible imprisonment, automatically came into effect. We keep saying, you know, we're in 1950. No, welcome to 1925. If you live in Texas, not Wisconsin. For 20s. Wisconsin is trying to enact a law that was passed in the 1800s. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, why these things were still on the books. I have no

MSNBC Promotes Civil War Over Recent SCOTUS Rulings
"Here is some bizarre audio This is out of MSNBC This is a historian Michael Beck loth Talking about this is the kind of stuff I'm telling you This is where the air If you were a Republican say oh my Fox show talking about or even hinting at a coming like Civil War that because Republicans are going to lose their minds and start attacking people They'd be like what are you doing You would be on the crazy media matters lunatics would be like screaming and peeing themselves Here's a guy in MSNBC saying as Supreme Court man you know Civil War it's a possibility Yeah check this out This country further in the direction of some kind of new Civil War I mean that's obviously something pretty alarming They're tell us what you mean by that while you think that I'm not saying that lightly Savannah I think you know why don't usually overstate things Here's a case where the Supreme Court is doing a decision that is going to fly in the face of at least what polls tell us is a majority of Americans maybe 60 to 70% And if you look at human history and American history that tends to push a society and the Civil War or at least towards Civil War if it's something that's as basic as this Now I get it because again I'm not a crazy leftist who's going to mischaracterize a man's words He says historian and he's going to say well I'm just looking at the data points throughout history and when polling is really bad on an issue like this You know you get societal strife and Civil War Okay you know what Fair enough But again this is the kind of thing whereas I'm a fair host I am I'm a conservative I'm an opinion guy I have conservative opinions But I do believe in fairness I promise you if Donald Trump would have mentioned that word Right now he would get no such deference None As a matter of fact when Donald Trump says something like go march peacefully and patriotically He accused of inciting a violent insurrection
In light of EPA court ruling, new focus on states' power
"The Supreme Court may have limited the power of the federal government to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants but its ruling did not touch the power of the states While democratic states have taken the lead on the most aggressive climate policy in recent years some Republican led states are also helping shift the U.S. power grid toward cleaner sources of energy a group of 24 states has formed the U.S. climate alliance most of those commonwealths are led by Democrats but a few including Vermont Massachusetts and Maryland have Republican governors together the state's account for 42% of the nation's greenhouse gas emissions and 18 of those states have set 100% clean energy goals I'm Shelly Adler
Howard Stern Is All Doom and Gloom About MCU Debut
"Busy. Howard Stern is, well, look, he's let it slip recently that he could be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a doctor doom movie. I don't care about these movies. I don't watch marvel stuff. So I don't really know who doctor doom is in the context of the comics. But during the commercials on his show the other day, how it left his microphone on so they say, while he talked to his producer, Gary Della bate, about possible guests to book for the show. And it's kind of difficulty here because the ads are playing over the conversation. But Howard tells Gary Della boate that he won't be able to talk much in the next few months and then his co host Robin Quivers wants to inquire about, well, what's going on with you over the summer? Why can't you talk much? And he says, well, I'm going to do doctor doom. Then he said, but believe me, I'm F and miserable about it. How is miss Mitchell about anything? And then he continued to share that he reached out to the marvel comic universe people. He reached out to the marvel vet, Iron Man himself, Robert Downey, junior for acting tips. And he asked Gary if he could get the number to the director, John favreau and get his contact information. Now maybe hours less than enthused about the mystery project because he's more focused on what he also said he's going to do. And that is to run for president in 2024. Because after the Supreme Court overturned roe V wade, Howard said on Monday last week that he wants to run for president to overturn all this bullshit. I know Howard. I've been in that studio over a hundred times when the show is off and running commercials. That's when Howard is really Howard. The guy you hear on the radio during the show and the old days, especially, really wasn't Howard. That was a character.
Post-Roe, Women Discover How Their Employer Influences Abortion Access
"Abortion providers and patients across the country have been struggling to navigate the evolving legal landscape around abortion laws and access I'm Ben Thomas with the latest Texas clinics have been turning away patients rescheduling them and now face canceling appointments again after the Texas Supreme Court blocked a lower court order late Friday that had given some confidence to resume abortions The state had left an abortion ban on the books for the past 50 years walrus was in place but a Houston judge on Tuesday reassured some clinics they could temporarily resume abortions up to 6 weeks into pregnancy Texas attorney general Ken Paxton quickly asked the state Supreme Court stocked with 9 Republican justices to temporarily put that order on hold which it did Friday night In Florida a law banning abortions after 15 weeks went into effect Friday
Sean Davis: If a Baby Is Not Human, What Species Is It?
"We're not psychiatrists shown, but I have to ask you to react to what we've seen over the weekend again and again and again. Not only was there pregnant woman outside the Supreme Court with a massive belly which had written on her belly, not a human yet. I mean, just mind numbing indoctrination. There are so many reports as even video Shaun of pro abortion protesters there with their little children wearing political t-shirts and what have you. What does that tell us about the place that this party has sunken to? Well, first off, I hope the baby inside that woman is not human. Exactly what species was she fornicating with. Good question. Good question. It's always amused me. If the baby is not human, what species is she, and if she's not alive, why do you need to kill it? Right. We all know that's absurd, even that person knows that absurd. What they're actually saying is that I don't believe that this person inside me is entitled to the same rights. I have because if that were the case, it would be inconvenient for me. And when you take that into account, it makes clear that while we think this is a political battle, it's actually not. It's a spiritual battle. There's clearly an otherworldly element here. And what I saw over the weekend in the reactions from the left was just was purely demonic.
"us supreme court" Discussed on THE NEWS with Anthony Davis
"U.S. Supreme Court halts lifeline for those wrongfully convicted. Russian soldier gets life sentence in first war crimes trial. And Biden in indo Pacific talks with India, Japan and Australia. It's Tuesday, May 24. I'm Anthony Davis. The Supreme Court on Monday gutted constitutional protections that for years have provided a federal lifeline to innocent prisoners facing prolonged incarceration, or even execution following wrongful convictions, stemming from poor legal counsel given to them by the state. In a 6 to three ruling, the newly dominant right-wing majority of the nation's highest court barred federal courts from hearing new evidence that was not previously presented in a state court as a result of the defendants ineffective legal representation. The decision means that prisoners will no longer have recourse to federal judges, even when they claim they were wrongfully convicted because their lawyers failed to conduct their cases properly. The decision eviscerated the Supreme Court's own precedent in a move that the three liberal justices called illogical and perverse. In a dissenting opinion, justice Sonia Sotomayor slammed the decision, warning it would leave many people to face incarceration or even execution without any meaningful chance to vindicate their right to counsel. The ruling in shin versus Ramirez was written by clarence Thomas, the increasingly right-wing justice, who has come to the fore as a result of the court sharp shift to the right, following Donald Trump's three appointments. He was supported by all 5 other conservative justices, including the chief justice John Roberts. In his opinion, Thomas presented the case as one of the state's rights. He said that federal courts should not be allowed to override the state's core power to enforce criminal law. A captured Russian soldier who pleaded guilty to killing a civilian was sentenced by a Ukrainian court on Monday to life in prison, the maximum, amid signs the Kremlin may in turn put on trials of some of the fighters who surrendered at Mary pole steelworks. Meanwhile, in a rare public expression of opposition to the war from the ranks of the Russian elite, a veteran Kremlin diplomat resigned and sent a scathing letter to foreign colleagues in which he said of the invasion, never have I been so ashamed of my country as on February 24. Also, Ukrainian president Vladimir zelensky called for maximum sanctions against Russia in a video address to world leaders and executives at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. He also revealed one of the deadliest single strikes of the war, a missile attack on a village near Kyiv that killed almost 90 people. And on the battlefield heavy fighting raged in the Donbass in the east, where Moscow's forces have stepped up their bombardment. Cities not under Russian control were constantly shelled, and one Ukrainian official said Russian forces targeted civilians trying to flee. Nearly 50 defense leaders from around the world met on Monday and agreed to send more advanced weapons to Ukraine, including a harpoon launcher and missiles to protect its coast, defense secretary Lloyd Austin told reporters. And general Mark milley chairman of the joint chiefs of staff said that low level discussion is underway on how the U.S. may need to adjust its training of Ukrainian forces and on whether some U.S. troops should be based in Ukraine. Meanwhile, the U.S. embassy in Kyiv has partially reopened and is staffing up again and there have been questions about whether the U.S. will send a marine security force back in to help protect the embassy or if other options should be considered. President Joe Biden is winding up his visit to Asia today by holding talks with the Quartet of indo Pacific leaders that includes Australia's new prime minister and India's Narendra Modi with whom differences persist over how to respond to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Biden will meet separately with newly sworn in Anthony albanese of Australia and with Modi after a four way gathering of the security group known as the quad. The partnership which includes the U.S., Australia, India, and Japan has become increasingly relevant as Biden has moved to adjust U.S. foreign policy to put greater focus on the region and to counter China's rise as an economic and security power, looming over the quad leaders talks will be Biden's blunt statement on Monday that the U.S. would intervene militarily if China were to invade Taiwan, saying the burden to protect Taiwan is even stronger after Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The White House insists that Biden's unusually forceful comments about Taiwan did not amount to a shift in U.S. policy toward the self ruled island that China claims as its own..
"us supreme court" Discussed on Native America Calling
"Efforts to adopt these two children. And Sarah hill, what do you think it says to the Supreme Court that Cherokee nation is supporting the defense of ICWA? I mean, the Cherokee nation has definitely been here before. Defending both Indian children, the parents of Indian children and the act. This is something that the nation has put a significant amount of time and energy into making sure that, I mean, it is a an existential issue. It will always is for tribes. We don't we will not continue to exist if we are not able to protect our children and keep them in our tribes. So I mean, this is something that to us seems like it has something that must be defended. It isn't an option for us to stand back and say, well, we'll let these equal issues. This is a really very important case for Indian country and for the Cherokee nation. Okay. Let's go back to Sarah Castelli and Sarah. I'm curious, who are these forces actively working against ICWA? I know fingers have been pointed at some private adoption agencies. Yeah, I mean, there are a number of folks here. We see a confluence of political agendas we would say. So, you know, the state of Texas who brought the suit the handful of non native foster parents involved Goldwater institute, a conservative think tank in Arizona has also been involved in more than a dozen cases related to aqueous state and federal cases either as a party or filing amicus briefs. So there really are a number of players coming together here in the well orchestrated well funded attack on ICWA and as Sarah hill was saying, ick was the face of this movement right now, this anti sovereignty movement, but we know that there are really other motives here. So we see motives to overturn tribal rights for profit to access tribal lands, natural resources, really ultimately to dismantle the future existence of tribal nations by removing protections for their youngest generations now. So there really is a much larger picture here and ICWA is the face of it now, but we know that that's just this moment in time that there's really a much more substantial agenda here. Okay. And Sarah, you know, ICWA going back almost 45 years now and this goal of giving priority and adoptions of Native American children to native families. And I read statistics that even when they go in place, native children are still disproportionately taken from families. According to data. So why is that? Why is ICWA just not working as well as it should be? Yeah, you know, you point to the statistics here, Sean, and that's an important thing to take a look at. We know that native families are four times more likely to have their children removed and placed in foster care than their white counterparts. And so this really is a very critical issue at this moment in time. This is affecting thousands of native children and their families. And we know there is bias in the system. There is evidence to support that. And we know that in many places, states and tribes are still trying to work together to better implement the federal law and it really is staggering that although the law has been around for almost 45 years that there are still plenty of states child welfare workers, judges who are still learning about ICWA for the first time. So because in many places, there aren't a substantial number of cases involving native children child welfare workers may not be familiar with the requirements of the law, you know, I've had a judge called Nick before and put us on speakerphone and open court and asked the question, what is this ICWA anyway and what does it mean we have to do so unfortunately, although it's been around for a long time, there's still a whole lot of education that we need to do about proper implementation of the law. So I think those are a few things at play here. We're talking native legal issues today in the child welfare act, gaming, jurisdiction of tribal courts. There's another pressing argument facing the current session of the Supreme Court. As always, we welcome questions and comments from all points of view on native America calling. So what are you waiting for? Give us a holler. The number one 809 9 6.
"us supreme court" Discussed on Rage for Justice Report
"That simple. I got some questions when I put out an email about this. What's so important about people with HIV getting access? Okay, they should be entitled to, but just pragmatically. Well, HIV is very different than many other illnesses because why it's uncured. It's an autoimmune disease that is uncured. And as a result, the body is constantly adapting to medications given to treat it. And because of that, you need a quick response from new medication and require the interactions of pharmacists and the consultations. And access locally quickly to pharmacies. And of course, with the mail order program, which may work if you're just taking a. Drug for your stomach ulcer, for example, does not work for the specialty medications for folks that need quick access to medications, and need access to pharmacists. Is there a privacy limit to? There's a big privacy element. Yeah, I mean, obviously, folks that have HIV because of the stigma unfortunately still attached to the illness, don't often disclose their illness to their roommates or workmates, and what happens when you get these mail order deliveries, all of a sudden, there's a large package that is clearly medication and you look at this person. I didn't even know you were sick, what's going on here? So it does raise all these issues about how folks with HIV may be outed and there's a lot of studies that show that that fear of their privacy violations leads to problems with adhering to medications. Great result, great work. We're really proud of this. Thank you so much for joining us. And thank you so much for fighting this Goliath and winning. Yeah, my pleasure.

"Thanks for joining us this week on the rage for justice report. Consumer watched up. I'm your host Jamie court president of consumer watchdog. Today we're joined by Jerry flanagan litigation director, who is also someone who just won a victory at the Supreme Court, the United States Supreme Court. Thanks for joining us, Jerry. Happy to be here. Now this was an interesting victory. It was a surprise victory. So why don't you tell folks about it? Right. So this is a case that we won at the 9th circuit unanimously. So great news only to be rewarded by a petition from CBS, which is the company on the other side. The pharmacy pharmacy chain that owns also. Well, the largest corporations in the world, right? They own Aetna. It's a pharmacy benefit manager. It has a annual revenue of $247 billion. And they bragged that most of it's from the federal government. So we got this great victory the 9th circuit only did be rewarded by a petition from CVS to the U.S. Supreme Court looking for review. And we thought, oh, geez. Well, luckily, those don't get granted very often, about 4% of the time. Well, on July 2nd, we get news at the U.S. Supreme Court had accepted the petition. It was one of the 4% of cases of the United States Supreme Court decided to hear. So at that point, we had a really gear up and get ready to write a big brief and prepare for oral argument the U.S. Supreme Court. And long story short, we wrote that brief, it's an outstanding brief. I was in the process of getting ready to do oral argument on December 7th, the 70th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, only to get out of the blue last week, a notice that says that CDS has decided to fall on its own sword and give up its appeal to the United States Supreme Court. So we win, meaning the 9th circuit decision wins. Now the downside of that is that I have to cancel my airfare and hotel in D.C. because I won't be arguing from the U.S. Supreme Court, but a very, very good outcome from our client for our clients. And that is a win in my book. Yeah. Wins a win. And this was a case that was about people with HIV who were not able to go in as we all are otherwise to a pharmacy and get their special HIV medications from a pharmacist. And you argued in the initial case that that was basically a disability discrimination because people with HIV should have the same rights as everyone else. So what happened? They got CVS spooked at the level of the Supreme Court. I mean, imagine your brief was very good..

Ramirez as you pointed out involves the evaluation at definition of concrete and particularized injury under article three and whether or not a plaintiff has standing to pursue a claim it did involve an f. cra claim claim under the Reporting act but i think the impact of it is going to be much broader than that. But let me tell you about. The claim was so ramirez alleged that his name was wrongly added to opec list of terrorists drug traffickers and serious criminals and he claims that he was denied a car purchase as a result of that reporting When ramirez asked trans union for copy of his report after the denial of that sale they sent him that report without mentioning the. Oh fackler the next day trenching and send him a letter advising that his name was considered a potential match to the fat list but didn't include a copy of the summary of rights that was required to be included by statute so ramirez brought a class action alleging that Engine violated the fair credit reporting act by failing to follow reasonable procedures to ensure the accuracy.

Notwithstanding that distinction the district court found that all eight thousand people had standing and the jury awarded each class.

"In either case, a simple majority of the Senate must approve the appointment member. So the Supreme Court appointed for life terms. Wow, terminal wife. Anyway. Though they may be expelled if they are impeached by the House of Representatives and convicted in the Senate. Now only one justice has been impeached that was Samuel Chase who was acquitted in eighteen o five in nineteen, sixty, nine Abe Fortas resigned under threat of impeachment for alleged financial improprieties unrelated to his duties on the court. So these guys have to be pretty straight shooters today. The Supreme Court self regulates the number of cases at handles the Supreme Court, which now enjoys almost exclusive discretion in determining. Its caseload hears about one hundred cases per term, which began on the first Monday in October and typically ends in late June. So the supreme core doesn't necessarily work year round on cases each year, the court receive some seven thousand case requests. The number of these requests increase some fivefold since World War Two, a reflection of the country's population growth progressively more litigious legal culture you know so. That's why they're getting more and more cases a surge in the demands placed by citizens on the government. The number of cases decided by the Supreme Court has declined since nineteen fifties and sixties when civil rights cases dominated the dock at US justices have opted to hear fewer cases. So you can see how zigzag back and forth or maybe roller coaster back and forth, but this begs the question. How does the court to sign which cases to review I in a vote that is usually kept secret the justices decide on the merits of a case. Then they issue the official written decision of the court. The first judgment determines who will write the official decision by tradition at the chief justice is in the majority in his opinions he selects which justice including himself will author the court's verdict. If he is in the minority. The longest serving member of the majority makes the decision writing in an appointment SESA era of John Marshall Chief Justice from eighteen o one, eighteen, thirty five has been common practice for the court to issue formal opinions to justify decisions to defy. Though the Constitution does not require it to do. So drafts of all opinions circulating among the justices and all justices may concur with or dissent from any decision in full or in part the final decision effectively represents the supreme law of the land. Still. How does the Supreme Court justice rule fairly on an issue that he is biased or she is bias on when the founding fathers wrote the US Constitution they intentionally made do judicial branch of the government to be the least powerful that includes Supreme Court justices and all federal judges judges were supposed to be politically neutral and rule on a constitutional and legally pass laws and not on political bias. But judges are still human is subject to their own beliefs and understandings. So the constitution loss, therefore, it is impossible for any judge to be totally unbiased. So when the president nominates any person to serve as a Supreme Court justice for Federal, Judge for that matter, they tend to share the judges tend to share some of the political ideologies of the nominating president. So with that kind of biased with. That kind of partisan appeal. How can affair decision be made? So if you go back to my original question and that was it, how can the Supreme Court fair and biased decisions when they are so partisan divide divided the answer is they can't the partisan nature of the US Supreme Court was produced here night owl sound studio.

"The fact that China has concentration camps. The estimated one million inmates in the west of the country are weaker, a mostly Muslim minority president trump signed a law yesterday authorizing sanctions on Chinese officials involved with US camps, but on the same day allegations surfaced that president trump told. Told China last year. He was fine with the camps. Those details came from a leaked excerpt of a book by former National Security Adviser John Bolton and have not been verified. Bonnie Glaser is director of the China Power Project. The Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington well. We don't know whether or not president trump actually did support or imply that he supported the policy in China of imprisoning weaker. But I believe that it makes sense because president trump has really not paid much attention to right or the weaker issue in particular president, trump has been focused primarily on trade and the bilateral trade deficit that the states has with China. The administration as you know, is defending itself from Bolton's allegation by highlighting the weaker human rights law that the president signed yesterday. What does it actually do well the law itself simply requires president trump and his administration to submit a report to Congress Define Chinese officials and other individuals who are responsible for the detention of leakers without charges and trial. And degrading inhumane treatment of these groups. But apart from that report, it is uncertain whether or not the administration would apply sanctions to individual. Also the legislation gives the administration the right to impose sanctions in this could include asset blocking visa rope revocations, even in eligibility for people to enter the United States, but the legislation really gives the White House room to opt against imposing sanctions. If they choose so so there's no authenticity so there seems to be a glaring contradiction between the new law. Sentiments alleged in John Bolton's book. How are we supposed to square that circle can can both be true? Well the president. In the period of trade negotiations with China I think just did not want to take on any other issues that might disrupt those negotiations in preventing an agreement, the United States in China of course signed a face on trade agreement in January and now the president's priorities appear to have changed. He is now focused on winning reelection and public opinion. Polls show that Americans have a high degree of unfavorability toward China that they see threats emanating from China so I believe that president trump is trying to use this issue to win votes and chief his reelection, so his whole goals have changed. China publicly denies the mass incarceration of the weaker people, but we also know of cases of workers who have been affiliated with Al Qaeda, and Isis so has there ever been to suggestion of China? Justifying the mass incarceration of Leaguers on national security grounds? Yes, the Chinese have explicitly said that there are weaker 's who have been involved in terrorist actions, and there have been a handful of terrorist actions in China over the last ten years, but they're his not a great deal of evidence that upwards of two to three million people are connected to some terrorism Bonnie glaser will leave it there.

Law enacted so for cod now that it's been signed by president trump how you feeling this really exciting. kind up became relief for all of us will have been drinking all we can do while risking our family. Members were still living inside China so it is really a huge step into victory I will say. It comes at the same time, as John Bolton's excerpt from his upcoming book, in which she alleges trump okayed detainment camps, concentration camps in China for weavers and other Muslim minorities. Does that change at all how you feel about the legislation passing? I got feelings at some point that kind of feel as an American, and especially working for the US government as a software engineer, but kind of felt betrayal, because it's really personal to me at my own president will kate that the Chinese government was camps which locked up my mom for more than fifty months, but by saying that a signed a bill, and then made it to into low. It was kind of leaving so just hope is bill. You'll be the first major step interviewer history, so we can put more sanctions and immoral limitations to the Chinese government or the officials, and then put an end to the camps as though forced labor. This is personal for you for caught. Your family is still in western China when we spoke last year, you described how your mother has been affected by this. Are you able now to be in touch with her?

In those calls there is there is no freedom at all everything recap to talk. Is We all know that's listened? By the Chinese police? At some point, you must be wondering whether she is self censoring or whether there was a kind of brainwashing going on. Do you think about that just couple days ago?

By the Chinese government, though local government officials, and then just praising how she has been taken care of. Has All of this affected your relationship with your mother?

I don't know why I'm wondering about this out loud. Anyway, come see us. Thank you add on with the show. Hey there, folks. Welcome to another episode of the cracks podcast podcast all about why being alive is more interesting than people think it is. My name is Alex Schmidt. And I'm the head of podcasting here at cracks. I'm also known as many the clam also known as Schmidt e the champ. And I am also also a fan of history. You may know that if you see me on YouTube or jeopardy or something else where I am either wearing hats are talking about it. But as we put this podcast episode together. And by the way, it is about the US supreme court as we put it together. My mind kept going to medieval European kings and queens absolute ruler individual right to to run a whole country. And whenever you read histories of people like that, you see the big design advantage in that kind of monarchy because it's also the massive design flaw, which is that whenever a ruler has a problem their whole country kinda suddenly has that problem too. Right. If a king does not understand an intellectual concept, or if a king is bad with money, or if a king is like str-. Doubling with gout or or some other disease of the past. Usually suddenly the whole country struggles to then it doesn't understand that concept or spend money. Well, or I mean, the gout things more interact, but you know, what I mean? And that is no way to live. Right. You wanna live in a democracy where you can vote out a Turkey leg, waving bad king of person. I always think of him on a throne with a Turkey leg. And I love Turkey legs. Don't get me wrong. Great food, but that idea of a bad king like that. Oh, what a terrible situation. But here's a question. What if the United States across almost all of its history has tended to have a passive and nine person a quivalent of that figurative Turkey like waiver, sometimes great sometimes not so great. But either way invested with that kind of power over the country. And if that is true, isn't it weird that nobody talks about it? Well, here's our topic this week. Why a terrible US supreme court is the historical norm. One more time. That is why a terrible US supreme court. Is the historical norm. And my guest today is why I have really any sense of that at all, Ian Millhauser is the Justice editor at think progress, he's also a lawyer legal analyst, and he's the author of the book injustices, the supreme court's history of comforting the comfortable and afflicting be afflicted one more time because as a great title injustices, the supreme court's history of comforting the comfortable and afflicting the afflicted that subtitle says it all across his book, he gets into the ways that the supreme court has not been all that consistent. You'd almost want them to just go one way that that's at least predictable. But here's a key quote from ins book describing them, quote, the justices have routinely committed to complementary sins against the constitution. They've embraced extra constitutional limits on the government's ability to protect the most vulnerable Americans while simultaneously, refusing to enforce rights that are explicitly enshrined in the constitutions. Text. And quote, and I had really a great time digging into this with him because as we'll talk about the supreme court has a pretty low reputation right now, I think there is something exciting about knowing that it has often deserved a low reputation because then also you notice the times when it really really worked and really really helped people out in particular. The Earl Warren court will talk about Earl Warren was chief Justice of the court and from the late fifties. Too early seventies. They had a really great run including decisions like Brown v board and other decisions holding that up. You may have heard of Brown v board in history class that's one where they pushed for desegregation of America's schools, and they are desegregated today, isn't that nice? But I think in history class we tend to hear about those super positive decisions. And then maybe some of the pre-civil war cases that were particularly bad toward toward people of various races and other than that. We don't. Really hear about how the supreme court has impacted business and health and our personal liberties as people, and we're gonna get into all of that today. So you can see how it has worked over time and have more perspective on what's going on today. This episode will be very foot Newt's heavy because I think it's an easy episode understand. It's it's not like going to be difficult to hear anything is just that we want you to have a lot of links to a lot of these cases. There's also a few fascinating ones that we will not get too. And you'll see them in the footnotes as something that the supreme court really did like buck v. Bell steel yourself before you look at the case, buck, the bell just warning you. But those things really happened, and they're really fascinating to see because it gives you insight into how that part of the government works. You know, the top of one third of the government the supreme court pretty important. And I think it's worth talking about today. I also want to give you one heads up because I am thrilled that we got into this topic. The supreme court. The supreme court is very timely. It's news that is happening as you'll probably hear in the show there even some announcements in terms of which cases, the court will or will not take on that are a few hours away from only tape this. We did it as late in the week as possible to keep it as timely as possible. But there could be some breaking news. And so we will discuss what could happen with those couple of things. And then in the text of the footnotes of this episode. We'll let you know what did happen. If there is a news to announce report. And so on you, you deserve a podcast that is fully accurate about news. If it means to be about news. And so that's what we're going to try to do with this particular show about something. That's happening. All the time. You know, those justices may look slow, but they can move. They make moves and we're going to move with them as absolute best. We can I hope you don't mind me text version of some of that as we need it. Also, I should say that's going to be a very very small percentage of the episode related to those super timely things. So the vast majority of. That is history and his things that you don't even need to check the footnotes for in terms of what's going on enough set up from me. This is just a really really fascinating look at how a key part of our government has pretty much always worked. And it's amazing to me that with all these supreme court justices. They are people that you did not directly vote for unless you are a United States Senator 'cause they they confirm them do any senators listen to the show, I would love to know it, please. If you if you were fully in the US Senate, let's let's get to talk, and maybe bring young could be fun either way. Please sit back or ask your congressional aide. Mr. Senator if you voted to confirm that Cavanaugh fella. And if so why the why the heck you did that not great either way. Here's this Goethe's riffing episode of the cracked podcast with Ian Millhauser. I'll be back after we wrap up talk to you. Then. With
