Supreme Court throws out Louisiana abortion restrictions
"Been talking to Stephen Black professor at the University of Texas Law School about the decision today We're a divided Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that opponents said would have left the state with only one abortion clinic. Chief Justice John Roberts provided the crucial vote during the court's liberal justices in a 5 to 4 majority. So Justice Stephen Breyer, who also wrote the majority opinion in the Texas Case, wrote the majority opinion here did he reiterated his reasoning in the Texas case, or did he just follow precedent? No American. I think a lot of the plurality of him by the prior was very much not just reiterating what he wrote for the majority four years ago in the home of health case, but also do not carefully trying to explain why that decision for your so should control the case. Why the Louisiana line is not in any material way. Actually, or legally different fromthe law that the court threw out in Texas four years ago. If I can, you know for Brier, the queue is to show why these cases are not the similar And you know, I don't get you. Justice. Roberts actually agreed with that. I think you just agreed with the endorsement of the analysis from the earlier decision on hold and help if that's why he felt obliged and compelled to write separately. What was the thread running through the dissenting opinions? What's interesting about this case is, you know if you read the sentinel opinions that actually very little tune about roar, Casey and a whole lot about standing, you know, I think for the defenders, the ground they were hoping in this case would be resolved on Was that the abortion providers June Medical Services, etcetera weren't proper parties. The challenge Louisiana long the first place that would have allowed the court sidestep a major ruling on the stuff into scope of the right to pursue a pre viability abortion. But of course, there were consequences all his own indignant much harder for a court to hear these kinds of pieces going forward, so No, I think for the dissenters for justice Promise Justice Alito. The quarters from Kavanaugh know there at least stated opposition here with principally to the court allow in this case to reach America at all. I suspect June that that no one will be surprised if no. Were those marriage to be properly before them. They just hostile to them that know the descent maybe focus on stand them, but I think it's not hard to imagine that there are objections on the merits behind them as well. So during his confirmation hearings, Justice Cavanaugh was questioned again and again on Roe v. Wade, and he said he would follow precedent. Did he veer from that in this decision? I don't think so. I mean, just, Kavanaugh wrote only a very short to page dissent, although he joined a large chunk of just much longer defense. You know, I think Kavanaugh is a little bit cagey and careful on exactly that point. Doesn't say a lot about roar. Casey. He really put it on the procedural question of whether these planets had standin on why he thinks that matter should have been read ended the trial court traditional back finding on that question. But, you know, I think folks are not gonna have trouble reason. If you imagine this is You know, suitable and without necessarily saying that he's probably a reliable vote for the conservatives in a case where the merits of an abortion restriction really aren't properly before the court. You know, I don't think it's directly inconsistent with anything, he said during the confirmation process, But Matt it certainly doesn't come running like wall. We've heard a lot about Justice Roberts Justice Gorsuch Has Cavanaugh been a reliable conservative vote during his first term here, I think, for the most part, I mean, I think there's one or two paces June where You know he's been on the other side. We're siding with the progressive on Ly one that comes to mind when you was the deciding vote on. It wasn't an especially major contention case that without an antitrust case You know, I think he's probably been in some respects more reliable in a smaller data set as a conservative vote than justice. Gorsuch has been, obviously, of course, it's you know, it's fresh off of the Majority opinion he wrote in the LGBT discrimination case, You know, so I think I think it's pretty clear that injustice. Cavanaugh, the conservative, got what they were hoping for. Um Whether that hold across the larger data set, we'll see. But you know, I also think it's also a sign of the times. June. You know, we had a 30 year period We had a Supreme Court with No. Two very obvious swing. That justice is Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, where you could see these pretty profound shift in majorities from one case to the next. That's not where we are. Now we have a solid conservative majority and results, like the abortion case, don't change that. I think they just show that there are at least some elements that even the solid conservative majority won't transgress. This was the third time in two weeks that Chief Justice John Roberts disappointed conservatives in a blockbuster opinion. Is he now the next Justice Kennedy Oh, I think it's been clear June since Justice Cabin always confirmed to the Supreme Court that in most, not all but most of the high profile, divisive partisan No social and contentious cases before the Supreme Court. The departure of death of Kennedy puts to Justice Robert from the middle, and I think, you know we're seeing that this term in spades. It's not just his decisive vote today in the Louisiana abortion paid not just his majority opinion in the doc a case you know that he also joined Justice Gorsuch. In the LGBT discrimination case, So you know they're going to be out liars where it's not the chief Cruz the swing vote, But I think you know in the high profile cases more often than not, yes, where there's a 5 to 4 majority, and it's No for the conservatives who sent him the the one who will have been personally to switch sides with the chief justice John, I don't think that's because anything about the chief has changed. I think that because No. The court itself has changed. And because the kind of dispute the court is taken are increasingly grounds new towards ones where any of those five justices were going. Be disinclined Tio. Ride with the quote unquote conservative position. It's going to be John Roberts. Using this opinion and looking forward at some of the other opinions that are coming out, especially the decision on the subpoenas for Trump's financial records. Does this tell us anything about how justice Roberts may vote on that? I really don't think so. You know, I don't think that this is any kind of broader shift or pattern in how the chief justice instead of his job, you know, I think he's he's able to take that from cases differently. I mean, you know, right after we got the abortion opinion this morning, we got the chief justice's majority opinion. And that's the Buchanans, which was a very classically conservative separation of powers. Hold them from him. So I don't think we should read anything broader into his vote in these cases, other than the reality that he is now the Longboat And, you know, do not could show up again as early as you know the cases where they were coming down on Tuesday or the rest of this week or next week. You know, I don't think this is the last time this term that the chief going to be the swing vote, But I also don't think that you know the fact that he's this one wrote in some cases allows us to predict in which cases It most likely
The Supreme Court case that could transform abortion
"Just this week on the first major abortion case of the trump error the justices are considering a Louisiana law right now requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital the case could reveal how willing the more conservative court is to roll back abortion rights a decision is expected by late June according this morning to Supreme Court reporter for The Washington Post Robert Barnes this case comes from Louisiana which is a state that passes a lot of abortion restrictions more than any other state in the country it's almost identical to a case that this court struck down in twenty sixteen but the court had a different membership then in that case justice Anthony Kennedy joining the liberals to strike that wall down of course Kennedy is now retired he's been joined by two of president trump's nominees Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh how does the questioning by the justices go to this particular case rubble justices made clear that their minds have not been changed by anything that this kind of law is unconstitutional so the two people who seem most now I wouldn't say inclined to join them but the two possibilities to join them would be Chief Justice Roberts and maybe just says Kavanagh both of them ask questions about the twenty sixteen president which indicated that they felt that that the president was still in force and that they had to abide with it but they wondered should you look at this state by state so if this admitting privileges requirement was a problem in Texas does that also mean that had to be considered a problem in Louisiana or do you go state by state as you might imagine the lawyers had different opinions on that and Chief Justice Roberts nor justice Cavanaugh gave their own opinions on what they thought the right answer was yes the justices uphold the Louisiana law what might that mean for other abortion cases down the road well I think it would be a real signal that the court is re re examining its abortion jurisprudence as I say this case was just decided four years ago for the court to come back now and do something different I think would show that the court was very open to restrictions passed by the state's on abortion and that they would receive a much friendlier reception at the
Supreme Court begins election year term full of big cases
"I we've reached the first Monday in October and that among other things means that the United States Supreme Court formally opens a new term it is a very different place since twenty eighteen with conservatives now holding a firm majority on the court and your legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg reports the upcoming Supreme Court term will likely be a March to the right on almost every issue that's a flash point in American society abortion guns to gay rights the separation of church and state immigration and presidential power and that's just the beginning headed to the court are cases testing power of Congress to get information from the executive branch that's relevant to congressional oversight and potentially to impeachment clearly president trump had something like that in mind when he had this to say about impeachment late in September it shouldn't be allowed they should be a way of stopping it may be legally through the courts with the newly energized conservative majority in place Chief Justice John Roberts occasionally splits from fellow conservatives as he did in upholding obamacare in twenty twelve and then repudiating the citizenship question on the census seven years later but usually on the big issues as Supreme Court advocate Tom Goldstine puts it the Chief Justice does seem to be a solid conservative vote the disagreement among the right in the Supreme Court has been about how fast do you move the first place that disagreement could become a parent is on abortion and a case that asks the court to essentially riverside twenty sixteen decision that struck down a Texas law that threatened the very existence of most clinics that perform abortions Goldstine whose publisher of the leading Supreme Court blog expects the court to eventually reverse roe versus Wade out right or Hollywood out over time it's coming but when nobody quite knows whether it's in one year five years or maybe ten also before the court is a gun case the first major test of gun regulations in the ten years since the justices ruled that there's a constitutional right to own a gun for self defense in one's home court observers have long attributed the ten year hiatus on gun cases to a closely divided court on which neither the four conservatives nor the for liberals we're sure how justice Kennedy would cast his deciding vote but now Kennedy is retired replaced by justice Cavanaugh who on the lower court was a critic of most gun regulations and a strong supporter of expensive gun rights also before the court this term are major questions involving the separation of church and state for generations the court sought to erect a relatively high wall of separation but that's began to change and religious rights advocates are poised to pounce mark Rienzi is president of the Becket fund for religious liberty I actually can't recall time in the last twenty years that there were this many key issues that seem ready for decision and prime for decision in particular Rienzi and others have set their sights on invalidating or undermining provisions in most state constitutions that barred direct or indirect aid to religious schools former Solicitor General Paul Clement the mood music of the court is that they would probably say that that's discrimination on the basis of religion and that's for bitten by the federal constitution moving on to another hot button issue the court will hear a case that tests whether employers are free to fire gay employees because of their sexual orientation or transgendered employees because of their gender identity the nineteen sixty four Civil Rights Act bars discrimination in employment quote because of sex the fired employees contend that language protects them from such discharges the employers argue that the law was never meant to cover gay or transgender employees then too there are a variety of immigration cases the biggest being the trump administration's attempt to rollback the Obama administration program that currently protects from deportation some seven hundred to eight hundred thousand so called dreamers brought to the U. S. by their parents when they were children without legal authorization in short the cases before the court are a legal Rorschach test if ever there was one Nina Totenberg NPR news
Supreme Court eyes abortion challenges ahead of 2020
"Summer is definitely over the Supreme Court justices returned to work on Monday as the October twenty nineteen term officially begins and waiting for the justices will be several abortion cases that are getting harder for them to avoid joining me is Bloomberg Supreme Court reporter Greg store Greg cases involving challenges to laws in Louisiana and Indiana will be before the justices in Tuesday's private conference but neither of the cases directly challenges roe V. Wade or Planned Parenthood V. Casey so what's the concern the concern for abortion rights advocates is that the court could use these cases to start chipping away at at the the the core abortion right even if it doesn't directly consider whether to overturn rowing Casey both these two cases do raise questions about that big ruling from a few years ago where the Supreme Court said struck down texas' Lule requiring doctors to have hospital admitting privileges that was seen at the time as the biggest abortion rights ruling victory in a generation since then of course the course composition has changed and there's at least the potential that the court will start pushing back on that this term. so let's talk about that Louisiana case which seems to replicate the Texas case yeah it's very very similar in terms of what it does it requires doctors at the gonna perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby and abortion rights advocates say it's really hard to keep those privileges and the the effect of that would be that it closes a number of clinics around the state leaves a stay with only one open clinic Louisiana disputes that in a federal appeals court said essentially we agree with Louisiana about the impact of this law it's not nearly as great as what happened in that Texas case in there for we can distinguish it from what the Supreme Court said in Texas and up hold the law. the Supreme Court has has previously stop this law from going into effect chief justice John Roberts joined with the court's five liberals to do that back in February now the court's going to say whether it's going to take up the the appeal on the merits if they do really all bets are off in terms of which way the court I go what what position does that put the chief in a difficult position this is not you know he even when there are there are precedents he clearly does not like his preference is to move slowly it's pretty clear that on the abortion issue that in the last term the court did not have a whole lot of appetite for getting involved in and no doubt he played a big role in that it's going to be hard for him because he was at the center in that ruling from twenty sixteen that the taxes ruling he didn't agree with it then probably doesn't agree with it now but he understands the perception of win the court overturns a precedent it is it's very striking and as he put it as confirmation hearings that that decade they have a goal go with a jolt to the system and the perception would be that the court is rolling back abortion rights not because they the earlier decision was necessarily wrong but because they're different members on the Supreme Court we now have to trump appointees and those trump appointees almost certainly would make the difference if that's the direction the court went tell us about the Indiana case which raises similar issues yeah this is a law that says after away for one wants to have an abortion she has to wait for eighteen hours after she has an ultrasound now the state already had an ultrasound requirements it all already have an eighteen hour waiting period for other types of so called informed consent requirements but then the state decided to combine those things. if the you have to wait for eighteen hours after the ultrasound and the problem from the abortion rights standpoint is for a lot of one women that means they have to drive hundreds of miles to a clinic a long way away and make two trips there or stay over night they are so it does make it significantly harder for some women to actually get an abortion and they say that makes all the difference in this case is that a federal appeals court struck down the law so if the court's going to take this one up the evidence is going to come from the other side it's going to be the conservative justices who say Hey we disagree with that lower court opinion we want to take it off the court right now has both these two cases the Louisiana hospital privileges case in the in Indiana weeding carry case before it and they're gonna have to decide are we taking just one of these cases we taking both of these cases or for our somehow we can avoid taking either of these cases and we we talk about the cheese being sort of the pivotal vote now but as far as taking the case they only need four votes so is it justice Cavanaugh who's the pivotal vote that's a good point he he may well be with especially when we're talking about that Indiana case where the lower court struck down the requirements and so yes it could be that the four conservative justices with justice Cavanaugh would vote to take up the case even though the chief doesn't Chief Justice doesn't want to take it up now that being said if you're the conservative looking at it realistically you you might only want to do that if you're pretty confident you're going you're going to get the chief justice's vote alternately when the court rules because then you're going to need that fifth vote but yes it is possible that that the four conservatives could agree to take it out without him necessarily without Roberts necessarily being part of that decision to justice Clarence Thomas has written about moving the abortion issue forward are the other. conservative justices as anxious to move it forward rapidly or are they in the mode of let's do it gradually. it's a bit of a continuing here justice Gorsuch is it seems to be largely with justice Thomas and having it you know a real desire to move quickly on this issue justice Cavanaugh in the last term there was one opinion he wrote when the court decided to to block that Louisiana hospital privileges law from taking effect he said he disagreed with that decision but then wrote a separate opinion saying why that step wasn't really that significant why will what he wanted the court to do by letting the if it had the court let the law take effect it would really have that big of an impact point being he's trying to say I'm not moving dramatically too I try to roll back abortion rights that sort of consistent with what we've seen from him in other areas of the law he may be like Roberts a bit of an incremental less when it comes to abortion right. one thing they can't avoid is that if they take these cases the decisions will come down in June most likely in the heat of the presidential campaign that's certainly not something that Roberts would once no and you know this is it this is a term that could be a very significant one they they have a couple other very high profile cases already they have the president trump's bid to eliminate the dock at the for deportation program they have cases involving whether federal job discrimination law covers sexual orientation and gender identity they're probably going to have a gun case that they that they act on and all these things could all happen at once and could very much but the Supreme Court front and center in the election campaign thanks so much Gregg as

Alabama Governor signs bill making abortion criminal
"Alabama's governor signed into law, the most restrictive abortion Bill in the country, and your total ban on all abortions in the state under the new law. Doctors who perform abortions could face up to ninety nine years in prison. The reaction from democratic presidential candidates has been swift and fierce one of the laws, most vocal opponents is New York, Senator and twenty twenty presidential candidate Kirsten gillibrand. The tweeted that the abortion bands recently passed an Alabama and Georgia represent. And I'm quoting the greatest threat. Reproductive freedom in our lifetimes. Senator gillibrand is heading to Georgia tomorrow. But I you joins us here on three. Sixty Senator thanks for being with us. You wanna fight this. But what exactly can you do on the congressional level? I mean, this is solely decision for the courts at this point, isn't it? I think I can lead a movement, and a fight across this nation for women's reproductive freedom. This is an all out assault state after state over thirty. Nine efforts in this country to undermine women's reproductive freedoms, President Trump intends on overturning Roe v. Wade, he's made it clear, not only in his campaign, but as president, and that's what these Republican legislatures are doing across this country. This is something. We're gonna have to fight back on. And I will lead that fight Justice Cavanaugh during his confirmation hearing, he said that he would respect the quote important precedent of Roe v. Wade do you believe he'll do that? If and when this case and cases from other states make their way to the supreme court because that a lot of times, people who are waiting to get confirmed. Give a statement that kind of oblique it could be read in different ways. I think his statement was dishonest and disingenuous. But the American people are watching, and if he lied under oath in those hearings that's gonna be problematic. So I hope the American people and American women everywhere will hold this president accountable, and we'll protest these extreme. Decisions by legislatures and governors being signed into law there. Criminalizing a woman's right to make a decision about her body her. Reproductive freedom. How many children, she'll have when she will have children, and it is literally turning back the clock on settled law. This is not something, the American people support over seventy percent of American American people support, reproductive freedom and support the precedent of Roe v. Wade, the fact of the matter, as you said, is that this is not any surprise. President Trump made it very clear as a candidate. He wanted to overturn this. He won the presidency in part because his supporters wanted him to appoint conservative justices to the supreme court, potentially peeling Roe v. Wade if it came down to it. So I mean couldn't win argue that this is the will of the people at least to a certain degree. Well, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by three million votes. So I wouldn't say that. And if you ask. Ericans today. Do you believe in the precedent of Roe v? Wade and giving women basic human rights and civil rights to make decisions about their health their wellbeing their bodies and life or death medical decisions. They believe women should have that right? So we know where the American people stand on this, and that's why we have to lift up the voices of people in Georgia people in Alabama, women who will suffer under these new laws and make sure that their voices are heard, and I will lead this fight across the country. If I'm president, I will make sure that there is not a judge or Justice, who was appointed by me, a who will not Opole the precedent of Roby row. We've Robie Wade, and the truth is, I will guarantee that no matter where you live in this country in all fifty states, that a woman will have access to safe legal abortions and other reproductive care services. That Republican legislators are so intent on denying one litmus test for supreme court justices and Roe v. Wade would be one of those limits does I do. And I do because President Trump and Senator McConnell, have changed all the rules when it comes to appointing justices, when Mitch McConnell decided that President Obama was not entitled to his supreme court Justice, where America Arlen was denied a hearing vote. They changed the rules. President Trump has made clear. He's had a litmus test, and frankly, I believe in precedent settled law.
"justice cavanaugh" Discussed on KNSS
"Every day just to try to stay alive and president by by the way, if there's anybody that would know this issue because we know the energy production in Texas over the years, and it's been a boom and bust over the years. It's been hard to good times and bad times. But the good times a really good times. Well, what we've seen in in in Texas. And you know, I tell people I said, listen, we're not perfect. But I think from the standpoint of of developing and all of the above energy strategy, Texas and pretty good example, you'll recall while I was governor. We developed more wins vanity than any other state in the nation's a matter of fact, we produce more win and Texas and all but five countries, and we were complimenting our diversity of of energy resources. We were developing the oil and gas this. We will build in pipelines. And that is is is a good segue into the president's executive order that he signed about ten days ago to go really make infamous. Structure at the heart, and these are real projects, and you think about if the previous administration had actually gone out, and and spent dollars where you were creating real infrastructure. It's a matter of fact, what this president knows you don't have to spend taxpayer dollars to do this. You just need to get the federal government out of the way get the permeating process expedited. So that when somebody knows that there's going to be a permit here the rules, and if you make these rules, here's the permit that's called permitting by rule. That's where President Trump is taking this country. It's the reason you've seen this explosion. Well, let me ask you a question. I I don't have the numbers off the top of my head. I'm usually pretty good with remembering. But now they include Anwar and our natural gas potential reserves. I mean, they're massive I've read hundreds of years. Worth a natural gas, which is the lifeblood of our economy though, in the new green deal wants to get rid of natural gas and oil in ten years, the lifeblood of the world's economy the dumbest idea of ever heard. But if we really if we really began tap these resources, how vast are they compared to say Russia and the Middle East. Well, and our reserves are growing every day. I mean, that's a good point interesting thing where the oil we the number one oil and gas producing country in the world, you know, we're the third largest oil and gas field in the world is it's the Permian basin in west Texas is the I mean right behind Saudi Arabia Russia, and then there is the Permian basin. When you add all these other basins, the Marcellus Utica up in Pennsylvania that a population region, by the way that does really mean like upstate New York. But you can't. But you can't use it because you've got such small minded people and all so dumb prayed to Pennsylvania. This thick in the you know, you know, they do the horizontal drilling, etc. I mean, they just did is literally stealing it, right? Under New York as we speak. I'm kidding. I'm kidding. Oh. By the way, this just broke. If I could do a little break in New York Times came out with a piece just now Joe Biden reached out to Anita hill, but she wants real accountability. And she said in an interview she left the conversation feeling deeply unsatisfied declined to characterize his words to her as an apology. She said she is not convinced by truly accepts the harm that he caused her and other women have suffered sexual harassment and gender violence era. Go the more, you know, it's fascinating. Because Democrats, you know, they care about believing, you know, a high school. Fairy tale about Justice Cavanaugh. I believe we have a Lieutenant governor in Virginia veered democrat. They don't care about accusations of rape and violence sexual assault. They don't know believers there. But anyway, so that's an interesting article that just came out I'm sorry to break in. But so what is the what would this mean, I say that the energy industry is going to produce high paying career jobs for every American because where we've had energy, and we have a lot of it. We haven't even tamped. We now truck drivers getting trained and being a base salary of eighty grand and all the overtime. They can handle Sean, this is a generational opportunity. That's I I look at this, and I share with people, and I've seen it happen in my home state young people who had maybe two three four generations of not even being able to get out of high school. They thought they just had to get out. And get a job and get to work. And and not only is this allowing people the opportunity to get out start a a family to be able to buy a home, which is by the way. That's the the biggest source of net worth that. Most people are ever going to have is to buy that first home, and and these energy related jobs, and I might add the the concentric circle of influence. It comes out for just about jobs in the energy industry. It's it's the manufacturing jobs that come because of the energy prices that will be able to have and and and Bill is still low manufacturing. So this is truly about generational changes. I mean, I think most Americans understand this is like, you know, thank you, President Trump for giving us the opportunity to take care of our families to have a better future too. To create this. Well, I mean, the the I'll give you a great example this blew me away when I saw it and this is a barber out in in far west Texas out in that Permian basin region. He put an airstream trailer on the back of this pickup truck went out to some of these men camps. That were the the labor is making over a hundred thousand dollars cutting hair. I mean, that's a yeah, I know that Tannock total. But it's it. It's happening all over and part of the of the industry, whether you're up in the Bach in North Dakota, or whether you're in the Marcellus you down in the Hanes Ville and Louisiana all across this country. Sean when we start building more pipelines to be able to move this product from where it's developed to to the markets wherever they those market western Europe to Senator heartsick maybe out as we don't have to. They don't have to count on Putin. All couldn't can you stay another segment. I gotta take a break. Here. We got gotta pay bills like everyone else. Oh, by the way, you I would give it to you. But I'll be breaking some law, but I can just suggest to you. And I've been friends with the former governor the secretary of energy for a long time black rifle coffee, the differences startling you'll feel like you've never had real coffee before. It's so good. All right. It's black rifle coffee dot com slash, Sean. More with former governor of Texas secretary energy. Rick Perry's with us..
US census: conservative justices seem ready to approve citizenship question
"According to the drive by media, the five conservative justices on its to premium court are about to do the unthinkable. They are about to uphold Trump's plan to add a citizenship question to the twenty twenty cents. It's now drive by court watchers said during arguments on Tuesday, the justices were split along ideological lines. The four liberal sided with blue cities who hate the citizenship question. Justice Sonia, SoHo my are the wise Latina said that fewer people will respond if the question is included leading to an undercount, but Justice, Gorsuch, Justice, Cavanaugh pointed out that the citizenship question was part of the census for most of our history and many nations. Ask residents about citizenship. Chief Justice Roberts Justice Samuel Alito of the Trump administration's decision to ask the question seem reasonable to them. Now, the liberals depend on the illegal. Oil immigrant population to help them demand more tax dollars and to inflate the numbers of congressional seats. They hold they are terrified of losing both money and power if the court rules in the correct way, which is in favor of the constitution. And that's why they're in panic mode. I mean, how ridiculous is this to ask a question? If you're a citizen is considered to be
John Roberts may be the new swing vote on the US Supreme Court
"You know, we were talking about John Roberts in how he doesn't seem to be turning out. His chief Justice of the United States Supreme court John Roberts. Yeah. That guy. He's lurched left hasn't. He has. And you don't want to be able to identify your supreme court justices that way. No, I think I think I know what's at work here though. Shannon bream on FOX did a report on this yesterday. And I'm listening to the report, and I'm thinking to myself, I have a little theory on this. I'll share the theory as soon as we hear this report on a range of hot button issues. John Roberts in recent weeks decided with his four more liberal colleagues, including a February vote to block enforcement of a restrictive Louisiana law on abortion clinic access just last week. He ruled four a death row inmate over his right leading colleagues objections. It's the latest sign. The sixty four year old Roberts is hitting the pause button on the expected conservative full court press ushered in by President Trump. After nominating justices. Neal Gorsuch, and Brad Kavanagh. This is an incremental est minimalist strategy, whatever you're hoping for or fearing, and whatever your your preferred area of law might be this court is not gonna move with giant steps. Since November the chiefs vote in separate pending appeals prove decisive a half dozen times on issues like immigration asylum and transgenders in the military while these votes do not yet go to the merits of the larger issues. They signal Roberts shaky place in the courts middle as the so-called swing Justice. And unofficial title. He inherited for now when Anthony Kennedy retired. See I think that's what he's doing is. I think he wants to be a first of all I think he's an anti Trumper never-trumper. So I think with Justice Kennedy stepping down. I think he sees himself is the rational reasonable person in the middle who can become that person that kind of holds that court from going way too conservative. I think that's where he's at mentally. And I think it has everything to do with President Trump. And his feelings about person and Trump and the two appointments to the person it's made to the supreme court. Well with Justice Ginsburg. In ill health for the most part and aging. There's also this. I mean, the fact of the left going crazy, maybe it's more of a stability thing. So we don't have to go through another dog and pony show. Like, we did with Justice Cavanaugh. I don't know. I just think that for whatever reason he's calmed down the Uber. Uber's now maybe on the left is a, hey, look just chill. I'm here. Okay.

Here's what to take from Kavanaugh's first abortion case
"It was a surprise to many conservatives. The supreme court blocked a controversial abortion law and Louisiana hours before it was supposed to go into effect. This could be the first test of abortion rights in the supreme court with new conservative justices. It involves a two thousand fourteen Louisiana law. That required abortion clinic doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals now in two thousand sixteen the supreme court struck down a nearly identical off from Texas on a five to three vote but last night conservative chief Justice John Roberts sided with the liberals in this case to stop the law from taking effect while the court considers whether it's going to take up this case the courts four conservative justices, including new Justice Brad Kavanagh dissented Justice Cavanaugh separately to say he would allow the law to take effect for now. But he could be willing to rethink it. If it showed that it had that undue burden on a woman's right to get an abortion. Now this like you said is just. Temporary. It may not tell us much of anything about how the court's gonna approach abortion rights. The justices still have to decide whether they're going to hear this case they could do. So

"The show. We were talking about the president calling off his scheduled visit to Baltimore tomorrow. Sometime next year, we are being told. All right. Well, remember the battle that it took to get Justice. Brad Kavanagh on the supreme court, and it was a Donnybrook as they save wasn't for Senator Lindsey Graham sing along with Mitch. On the president remaining loyal to his nominee. Justice Cavanaugh would not be seated today. And he's taking pretty much a low profile in the early early goings of the of the supreme court. But now he's begun to emerge and the first well, I think noticeable ruling or lack thereof. Is a disappointment. It is strike one for Justice cavenaugh he joined the other disappointment. Chief Justice John Roberts and the courts progressive wing yesterday declining. The review three cases centered on Republican efforts to defend Planned Parenthood at the state level. You remember it was the pro-life advocacy group. I think Senator for medical concerns of anonymous taken and David the Leiden had presented evidence that Planned Parenthood was indeed harvesting and selling fetal materials, meaning baby parts. Okay. Let's call it. What it is. And of course, after that was revealed many states, including Louisiana, Arkansas. And one other escapes me at the moment, they had decided to deny Medicaid tax dollars to these abortion mills based on the what they believed to be illegal harvesting of baby parts, Planned Parenthood than suit on behalf of several clients, the fifth circuit ruled that the Medicaid recipients can challenge the disqualification of a provider under the Medicaid law. And so that's how I ended up before the supreme court now it takes four votes. Four votes on the on the balance on the court in order to take up a case. Unfortunately, there were only three Justice Thomas. Justice, Gorsuch and Justice Alito. The the swing vote. Now. The new swing vote will be John Roberts that is disturbing. It all different kinds of levels. And this is I said strike one for Justice cavenaugh in dissent. Justice Thomas accused the majority of abdicating its duty for political reasons quote. So what explains the court's refusal to do its job here. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named Planned Parenthood. Thomas asserted, a tenuous connection to a politically fraught issue does not justify abdicating. Our judicial duty if anything neutrally applying the law is all the more important when political issues are in the background. Indeed. So again, and it look one of the main reasons the Justice Cavanaugh was either falsely accused or targeted by the left is because of the potential for the Roe v. Wade which is the abortion issue. So here we have a case where the court has an opportunity to take up the defunding of Medicaid tax dollars. This wasn't about abortion rights. This was not a overturn of Roe v. Wade or any of the other abortion related supreme all this was was to deny tax dollars for Medicaid to these Planned Parenthood clinics in these states and Justice cavenaugh joins with Roberts and the far left wing to refuse to even hear it. So you have voted to take up the case, then you could have looked at all the arguments all the merits demerits, whatever the case may be the pros and cons. And then, you know, come in and and written your. Your ruling or one of the kids that they didn't decide to do that they punted on it. Is there something as important as this particular issue, Planned Parenthood? And of course. Using harvested baby parts, and what have you and selling them? Is a critical issue. And he and I agree with Justice Thomas. I'm paraphrasing his words, basically, you know, we're advocating our responsibility by by not at least hearing it, right? As opposed to just kicking the can down the road. So now the circuit rolling stands. So they are allowed to continue to have Medicaid tax dollars. Go to these abortion mills in those respective states. Now, I will say the one silver lining in the cloud is the Trump administration is currently formulating a new federal regulation called the project life rule. And what would that that would do? What would it would forbid public funding of Planned Parenthood under title ten? So that is something that is in the works as they say. All right. Let's go to the phones. Christie's in Baltimore. Chris. Good morning. And like you when I first because I I was one hundred percent with Kevin. And I still have a lot of hope for him in court with with the four gentlemen Roberts, kind of being in the middle of or what I I read the headlines and. Along like like, you were expressing. But I think the point you just made. And this is what kind of calm me down that this wasn't about abortion rights. It really was about the funding of terrible infancy in my humble opinion. But one into the funding and what they're doing with the just what they do. I would have rather him vote to take up the chase, regardless of which direction this case would've gone. But because this was a specifically about abortion rights, calm down as. To myself that. The core. Eric. Until and they wanna have to fight on a real abortion rights chase that just funding. That that could very well be. I the only thing that concerns me really about this is that there will be more cases that will come up, and as I said, the Trump administration is working on the project life rule, but the other thing that bothers me about this Chris is that again if this were any any other entity besides Planned Parenthood. I think they would've voted to take up the case. I think right now you had Roberts and cavenaugh kind of sidestepping around this issue because it was Planned Parenthood. And it was such a high profile name everybody else. I think they take the case. But I think you're showing right now, they don't want. They don't want. They won't. They don't want this fight right yet. As of yet. I agree. I think that's that. That might be behind the whole, reasoning know, especially judge capital coming in having to face something like this so quickly in his tenure. Yeah. Chris thanks so much for the call.

"The voice of Boston W R K O, Mike Segal for Jeff cleaner today. Jeff back tomorrow. We now have a poll we have polls on everything I guess these days. Fifty six percent of likely voters. And that's an important point. Fifty six percent of likely voters oppose any impeachment effort against supreme court Justice. Brad kavanagh. Now, Rasmussen reports just released this poll today. Only thirty percent of voters think that the House Democrats should attempt to impeach Justice Cavanaugh. So if you think about that fifty six percent favor. Keeping Justice cabinet, right. Where he is only thirty percent. Want to see him impeached, which leaves fourteen percent? I guess undecided. That poll comes after a report came out in the federalist. In which House Judiciary committee ranking member Jerrold Nadler, actually revealed plans for House Democrats to investigate and impeach cavenaugh for alleged perjury. They just don't stop anywhere. Where was where was Nadler when Hillary Clinton was lying through her teeth about everything she couldn't remember anything woman has a mind. That is a ironclad. It captures everything. She knows full. Well, everything that she's done yet. She says she doesn't remember. Where was the Jerrold Nadler when Bill Clinton? Was lying and committing perjury. He wasn't supporting the impeachment of Bill Clinton where where where was Jerrold Nadler any of those times, it's all political. Nadler, then tried to back away, and he said on CNN. He said, I'm not gonna comment on a private conversation with a friend. I guess what? This leads to first of all the American people understand. That. Dr Ford was either confused. Or manipulated? Or delusional? About judge Cavanaugh. He had the record of that summer the calendar that he brought to the hearing. The other two backed away. In fact, there are possible prosecution charges coming forward for sweat, Nick. Who said there were these weekly sex orgies for about ten weeks? Where women were abused. And she she thought Cavanaugh was one of them. And he was standing by the punch that was allegedly drugged. And then he wasn't there. And then she didn't remember, and she has her own background of a troubled circumstances in her life that they looked into and now false prosecution. Malicious prosecution is certainly actionable. And so the, but the Democrats jumped all over it all my God. Let's get this woman up here to testify. We've got another case against judge cabinet or they're building one after the other that one went away. The one in Rhode Island went away on the boat. The person retracted. So they made a mistake. Nobody on the Democrats had the decency to say baby judge Cavanaugh was mistreated here. I thought one of the most eloquent speeches ever given on the floor of the Senate was by Susan Collins of all things Senator Collins was impeccable and the way she went point by point. Like peeling an onion layer by layer. About judge cavenaugh, and why all of these charges should be refuted negated discounted and eliminated. And that she was going to vote for him. It was a brilliant speech. And it made the point very clearly. I said a raises a bigger question and the bigger question. It raises is are the Democrats going to go down the path of finding everything they can to either indite. Behavior of administration officials say indict Rome in legally, I mean, make them culpable. Are they going to try to impeach the president? Are they going to keep having a hearing after hearing after hearing? You know, if Mullah wraps up by the end of the year before the Democrats take power, and he says nothing happened. With regard to the president. Because most of the charges that have come forward have been from crimes of a card as much as ten years prior. To the president even thinking about running for president. And anybody thinks that the fact that he? Paid a woman to keep quiet if he did pay the woman number one. And if it was to keep quiet number two, meaning stormy Daniels. My answer is so what? Again, that was in two thousand six if it even happened. He denies it happened, but it was two thousand six. And why would anybody? Find culpability in that act happens all the time. So I find that whole thing troubling side by I guess, the the real point will be. Are the Democrats going to over reach and just go after the Trump administration and Donald Trump personally? Getting tax records getting personal business records all the rest of that. And then he's gonna fight back. And then where are we in terms of the issues that we care about? We do need changing the healthcare legislation in this country. The Republicans are just as culpable as the Democrats for doing nothing about that we need immigration reform, we need infrastructure done. We have criminal sentencing.

The supreme court split four two four earlier this year on whether to allow the execution to proceed meaning Justice Cavanaugh will likely cast the deciding vote in the case, and in Wisconsin, where Republican governor Scott Walker was defeated on Tuesday in his bid for a third term an office. The high tech manufacturer Foxconn says seeking to bring in workers from China to help run the factory under construction near the city of Racine. Governor Walker back to plan with the support of house speaker Paul Ryan and President Trump to.

Governor Scott Walker which known for aggressively busting unions, and for his close ties to right wing dark money groups, and those are some of the headlines, this is democracy. Now democracy now dot org. The warrant piece report, I'm Amy Goodman, Juan Gonzalez, welcome to all of our viewers and listeners across the country and around the world. Democrats have seized control of the house of representatives flipping more than two dozen seats. This gives Democrats subpoena power for the first time since President Trump was elected two years ago, while the Democrats will control the House Republicans picked up two more seats in the Senate on the state level. Democrats picked up seven governorships huge turnout numbers were reported across the country. President Trump responded to the election results by tweeting, quote, if the Democrats think they're going to waste taxpayer money investigating us at the house level. Then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of classified information and much else at the Senate level to complete that game. The terms were a groundbreaking election for women for the first time in US history. At least one hundred women will serve in the US house of representatives, including the first two native American women and the first two Muslim women later in the program. We'll hear from. Democratic socialist Alexandra Cossio Cortes who became the youngest woman ever elected to congress. But we begin today's show with two guests here in New York, Katrina, vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of the nation. America's oldest weekly magazine. She's also a columnist for the Washington Post dot com, and we're joined by Rashad Robinson, executive director of color of change. We welcome you both to democracy. Now, let's begin with Katrina vanden who've oh your thoughts on what has taken place the house now in the hands of Democrats Republicans have expanded control of the Senate. I think taking back the house is critical is a check on President Trump. But also, I think it's important people know that a majority of the committees and subcommittees will be controlled by progressives. The progressive caucus will have about ninety members some of the women you mentioned will join and it will have thirteen committees. And I think thirty subcommittees that's important. And I think the ability to not only hold the president in the. Administration accountable on corruption on self interest on self-dealing, but the ability to lay out bold initiatives, bold, legislation may not pass with a Senate as we've seen it. But it's critical. I think that the progressive Democrats lay out in this war of ideas, that progressives have been winning to a certain extent fifteen minimum wage jobs program infrastructure, free higher. Ed. The governor's race is one spoke of critical critical both as a blue wall against the redistricting scams that we've seen from the Republicans critical also to rest back the rust belt from Trump who really did. Well, and key parts, Wisconsin. How sweet it is Scott Walker going down. I mean, my colleague John Nichols has written so much copy about this man who busted public workers assault on education has demeaned and degraded the Wisconsin idea, so I think that's critical amendment for renewed Robinson. And I were. Talking about it. One thing we've seen in this election. Amien won the barriers to democratic participation the will funded targeting voting suppression. So men men for restoring rights to ex-felons to vote one point four million Floridians will be able to vote I think is a vital step on the road to a true democracy. Statehouses? We haven't seen the numbers yet. But those will be hopeful as well flipping. I think Minnesota and a few others. So I think it was you know, it was a bittersweet night because we've seen the incendiary toxic. Nationalism xenophobia, any immigrant actions talk of this president and his enabler in the Republican party. You know, they they secured some wins. However, those who say was kinda split, let's all recall that the Senate map is the most horrific for Democrats. I mean, it's just, you know, the one third up we're really states in which the Republicans and Trump of played well, you mentioned the rust belt, and it to know that there were three states that really delivered for Trump, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania and of the and they're those three in those three states. The statewide all Ron's either for governor or for Senate for the US Senate of the Democrats won six out of seven. So you've seen a situation now where those key states now are really not as reliable Republican as they appear to be in two thousand. One. I mean, many of those voters went for Obama in two thousand and eight and two thousand and twelve so it was that flip in two thousand sixteen that has to be looked at. And I think last night was in good insight into what is possible in twenty twenty in effect. We can talk about a twenty twenty began last night, but that's a different discussion. But I think you see it with taking back those those state houses there were some good minimum wage initiatives in states very troubling that good initiative in Washington state, the kind of carbon tax the green new deal went down. You still see the power of corporate money in our system and at the state level. There were six states that moved into total democratic contrived and the one of the New York state where the New York state Senate, which was had been very evenly divided. The Republicans control now is overwhelmingly democratic twenty three. I think is now the number in the New York state Senate win that means in terms of what can be accomplished. By progressives. Progressives won a supermajority in the Vermont house neutralizing, the newly reelected governor fill Scott's veto threat knows this. I mean, it's critical on so many levels. But historically, as you will know we've lost over a thousand state legislative seats in the last few years. So this is coming back and saying Democrats progressives are going to play at all levels, New York state. You studied you've written one? It's a major win us. See what governor Cuomo does with it because he's hid behind the inability to do much with the independent democratic conference now defeated one last race, which I think is very important one. And I were talking about is Antonio Delgado in the nineteenth congressional district that race was supercharged with toxic racist rhetoric. John Foucault has held out against good people except for teach out, but he's gone. So I think you know, it's a bittersweet, but I think real gains were made. And I think it would be wrong to. Downplay those one of the nation's most closely watched races of the year remains too close to call Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp, holding a slim lead over democratic challenger Stacey Abrams who is vying to be the first African American woman governor in US history, but Abrams is refusing to concede because thousands of absentee ballots have not yet been counted campus currently at fifty point five percent if he dips below fifty the race goes to a runoff. The Georgia race was marred by widespread allegations of voter suppression carried out by Brian camp. Again, who is as Georgia secretary of state is in control of the elections, despite the fact many demanded that he recused himself. Meanwhile, in Florida Democrat Andrew gillum conceded to Republican Ron to Santa's after a tight race Gillam attempting to become Florida's first African American government, but faced a string of racist attacks from outside groups into Santa's who told Floridians knocked. Monkey this up and in Maryland, Republican governor Larry HOGAN was re elected defeating democrat, Ben jealous. The former head of the N double ACP or shod Robinson. You're the executive director of color of change. Yeah. I think I think these. You know, what happened last night with particularly with Andrew in Stacy's race. I think represents the way that the south is changing.

Just like cinema is a phony in Arizona. Dean Heller is done a great job for the people in Nevada. Jon tester Chuck Schumer liberal in Montana. Rosendahl can beat him. We could win Indiana. Who knows what's going to happen in West Virginia? I'm not counting on it. But anything can happen. If the people decide that they want to keep this positive agenda for the future of the country alive and moving on. Do you want the resistance the anger the tax increases the open borders, ObamaCare one or two good grief dot help us three possible outcomes tomorrow and spite there's some idiots made a prediction if Trump loses the house and wins the Senate total loss for him. Go look at what happened the Clinton a ninety four go, look what happened to Obama in two thousand ten and guess what they both get reelected two years later. So it is not indicative of what's going to happen in twenty twenty. I can tell you that right now history has proven that in our lifetime. Numerous times, the bottom line is just for one reason alone. Imagine just imagine tomorrow night. You tune in to fake news. And they're giddy. They start out today. Happy expectations rising. They're feeling hoping. They're praying gone all into defeat Trump. Well, the Republicans will hold the Senate and pick up seats in the United States Senate imagine their faces. Oh, looks like the Republicans will hold the house of representatives magin the collective meltdown. It's worth the price of admission.

"Right. And so anything Gonzales, what are we seeing in terms of if Janet's, right? And I, and I definitely think she is that we had that surge of Republican interest following the confirmation hearings of Justice Cavanaugh. But if that motivation is starting to you know, wane a little bit what's taking its place. I mean, they're the GOP's winning lots of ads on immigration. And jobs. For example. I think Republicans are struggling with what they are against the cycle mean in the past to midterm elections. Republicans have been they were rallying behind being against President Obama and ObamaCare the Affordable Care Act, and that was a that was a two critical things that helped to boost their enthusiasm, and they don't have that really anymore. I mean, they're maybe trying to use it a little bit. But they're going to Nancy Pelosi or they're going to how j- just as Cavanaugh was treated in the confirmation hearings or they're talking about the caravan. Oh, talking about how individual democratic candidates are too too liberal for these districts in these racists. But I think Republicans are struggling just being having something to rally against is more powerful than having something to rally four in. That's where Democrats have the advantage because they have President Trump. I mean, he is unifying energizing the Democratic Party better than any democrat actually ever could. And so Republicans are still searching for. I don't know that they found the one issue that's going to get you know, the typical base out to vote Janet would you agree with that? I think we're beginning to see what the Republicans closing argument might be in the new ad out from the Trump campaign, which is kind of a combination of what they're four and what they're against. I call it kind of morning in America with a dark cloud its vision of voters talking about how good things are right now. But if Democrats take control it'll all go away. So it's kind of upbeat and cheerful and and ominous and notably President Trump himself doesn't appear in the ad which is probably a good call. Right. Well, so let's talk a little bit more specifically about the Senate here for a second Janet because as Nathan said earlier, he sees the possibility of the GOP picking up seats in the Senate, in fact, so I want to hear a little bit of tape of what's happening on the campaign trail in Florida right where there is the race between incumbent democratic. Senator Bill Nelson and Florida's current Republican governor Rick Scott who is running for Senate as well. So first of all let's hear from Senator Bill Nelson sharply responding to Rick Scott's assertion that Bill Nelson supports higher taxes. And this happened at a debate earlier this month, the governor keeps coming out with one Walker after another apparently, you never got your mouth washed out, which slope after tell them live. So that's Senator Bill Nelson. They're really pushing back on Florida. Governor Rick Scott in an interview with Fox News on Wednesday. Rick Scott explained what he sees as the difference between him and Senator Nelson in my case. I'm a worker in center Nelson's case, he doesn't do anything. He's never done anything. He's been around for forty two years..

"This office was nineteen sixty six that was before I was born. It's been a very long time and Republicans have feel like they've got a great shot. But our poll showed one thing that that might give thousands some hope that there was plenty of undecideds one in five Democrats listed themselves as undecided in that race. So for for them. This might have been a wakeup call that this is not a drill, and they're really going to have to make a choice and Keith Ellison has been this week try to make that case bringing up things about his opponent, Doug wardlow, and how conservative he is telling people you might not like me, but look at him. You know, I was going to ask you about the the undecideds but in relation to the the run for governor. But real quickly how much of the cavenaugh hearings? How much did that play into the the poll plummet for Keith Ellison? Well, a lot of people use that to make the case that if you're going to hold him Justice now Justice Cavanaugh to a high standard, Democrats, you better hold Keith Ellison new high standard, and if you turn on the TV there's a lot of ads for other races for congress for you know, the these competitive races where Keith Ellison is picture right next to the democratic opponent. So he he's a fixture in more than his own race real quickly in the in the governor's race will those that large percentage of of independence now the the governor's races and is an open race because the incumbent governor Mark Dayton is not running for reelection. So you've got congressman Tim, walls and Republican Hennepin county Commissioner Jeff Johnson. In the in the past you get from the past election results. Do you get a sense of where this big chunk of undecided? Voters might go. I think it stands at twelve percent. At least in one of the polls. You know, it's a great question. And I wish I knew, but, but he, you know, this is a case where there's a democrat running to succeed a two-term democrat. That's never happened in Minnesota where that democrat has won the Democrats usually see quite a bit of a drop off in Minnesota in these midterm elections. This time they nominated Tim walls, who's a congressman from southern Minnesota and his had somewhat of a moderate record. So they're they're really hoping that he can kind of carry some of those centrist voters who might lean a little bit, right? Jeff Johnson has run a pretty standard Republican campaigns echoing the president on some of these immigration topics and cut government cut taxes, and Tim walls is has not really had to go negative on his opponent yet. So he feels like he's in a good spot. Okay. And and and and Helen you and I were talking about Montana moment ago. But you've done a lot of reporting in from Idaho where Medicaid expansion is on the ballot. It's a ballot initiative, Idaho is a ruby red state. But what are the chances of the ballot initiative passing really high? And it's kind of unbelievable. You know, I grew up in Idaho. And I watched it turned from purple state into a bright red state and part of that Brighton. Readiness has come from people moving in from California and other states with more far right tendencies are more ideologies who am through election to the state legislature. I've really ensured that there was no way that Medicaid expansion was going to happen. Same for the governor. But, you know, the this campaign, it's a grassroots campaign is headed by childhood friends from Sandpoint, Idaho, a tiny town up north and they decided, okay. Work to get it on the ballot. We're just gonna go door to door get support not through a huge massively paid campaign, but trying to talk to people about what they call the gap. So people who make too much money, but not enough money right to get this sort of. Healthcare that makes living a sustainable life in Idaho possible. And the polling on it similar to the polling on Medicaid expansion in Utah is pretty strong, and it seems very likely that it'll pass and both candidates for governor both the Republican who will almost certainly win. And the democrat have said that they would not fight that if the measure passed so it looks like it will become a reality after this election. So are the Republic so are Republicans running ads in Idaho, saying we support this in the way that we're seeing in races around the country where Republicans are actively campaigning on say on healthcare. And in particular. I'm thinking of you know, we will protect preexisting conditions. Well, you have some of the more moderate Republicans who have come out in support, but very few. I think that most people don't want to be an. Pegged in future elections as someone who had gone on the record as supporting what is generally referred to still as Macaire and a lot of the anti proposition two messaging has been this is ObamaCare you are bringing socialism Taito. You know, I think like the messaging in Texas in Florida has been like you're going to turn the state into another Venezuela. And people are the message in Idaho is another Venezuela. Yeah. Well and Helen Peterson Jessica Shubert Brian backs. Thank you very much for being on America on the line. We have to take a break.

"Proudly swore in the newest member of the United States Supreme court Justice Cavanaugh. They treated him badly. They treated him badly. What the radical Democrats did to Justice Gavin at is wonderful family. Is a national disgrace. And don't forget it on November sixth. Don't forget gotta keep everybody side. Got to keep them rallied. Gotta keep them ready. Gotta keep pushing it a gotta keep doing these kind of things because if you are the president you're looking at what potentially this could mean to you. If you lose the house now, you're probably not going to lose the Senate. In fact, I dare I say I think you're going to pick up some seats in the Senate a very good chance. There's too many seats for the Democrats that they had to defend at some of them in very read parts of the country, and they aren't going to to to defend that many. They they they know that they may they may pick up one here, but they're gonna lose Heitkamp's already done. So you understand that you're probably going to be sitting in a position. That's as as as what it is in the Senate now if not a little bit better, but the house looks like to be a foregone conclusion that you were gonna lose it. Then you got this push. And now you're getting excited and the possibility because a cabin on all these things, and then you step back, and you say to yourself if I lose this thing. This is where it all originates. You're gonna get investigation after investigation after investigation after investigation. On me. From Russia to my taxes to anything else. So I better start pushing all the things that we done. And if you guys want to change those things back, well, then handed over to the DEM. If Nancy Pelosi..

"Share with everybody. And it's a lesson about why some people are so indignant about fake news. And that's not to say that I'm not indignant about them and dignity about this. It's just that we've had bias in the media. For a long long time. But sometimes it's particularly egregious. And I'll give you an example. I had watched the news coverage early this morning. About the ceremony last night, which I had not seen live and the ceremony last night was in the White House with. President Trump welcoming the whole cavenaugh family the two daughters who were so proud of their dad and his wife, Ashley. Judge Kavanagh's wife, Ashley. And justice. Kennedy was there. All the judges justices of the supreme court were there. And what I heard about this event was oh, it's too bad. It was supposed to be such a nicer then. But Trump ruined it as he often does because what he said was so outrageous, and he was so off the rails. And he ruined this event never before. And he's spoiled that n-, it's disgusting and horrible. And when you watch it that is simply not true. And let me tell you one area where I honestly, I think most of the coverage that I saw on NBC and very much on CNN wishes deliberately misleading. They made it sound. As if. Justice Cavanaugh spoke and spoke with dignity, and then Trump spoke afterward, and then ruined everything that Justice. But it wasn't like that. Because President Trump spoke I and he welcome people introduced every all walked in together. And then the president said, thank you very much. Thank you members of congress. Members of the cabinet honored guests and fellow Americans. It's my privilege to address you tonight from the East Room of the White House. And then after welcoming everybody he said joining us for tonight ceremony is every sitting supreme court Justice chief Justice Roberts. Thank you Justice Thomas. Thank you, Justice Ginsburg. Thank you Justice briar. Thank you Justice Alito. Thank you Justice Sotomayor. Thank you Justice Kagan. Thank you. And just as score such. Now, why in that order that's the order at which they were appointed to the court. And. Then he said this in setting up how his particular performance of his duty in helping to watch the swearing in of the Justice. He had appointed how this was going to be different. I would like to begin tonight's preceding differently than perhaps any other event of such magnitude on behalf of our nation. I want to apologize. To bread and the entire Cavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering. You have been forced to endure. Those who stepped forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception. What happened to the Cavanaugh family, violates every notion of fairness? Decency and due process our country. A man or a woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. Okay. And then he goes on to make the most controversial declaration. He made in the statement. He goes on to say that that Justice Cavanaugh was proven innocent now. Okay. He's not proven innocent. But he was certainly judged innocent by anybody who's reasonable enough to look at this. And to look at the preponderance of evidence of evidence was that anybody who was there at the time any of the name witnesses. Agreed with him. Not in saying that I know this didn't happen. But in saying, no, I I don't remember this at all. And I don't remember it at all like the way that Christina Ford described it, here's what President Trump said that you, sir. Under historic scrutiny were proven innocent. Thank you. Margaret analyzer fathers. Great, man. He's a man of decency. Character kindness and courage who has devoted his life to serving his fellow citizens. And now from the bench of our nation's highest court, your father will defend the eternal rights and freedoms of all Americans. You know that? Okay. This is just fine. And it's touching because you can look at the way the cavenaugh family his daughters. Margaret in LIZA, we're looking up at him and his wife. Ashley when when President Trump was saying these words, and what he says saying, he's a man of decency character, kindness and courage. There's no one who has stood up. To say anything different. No one. And you know, that if there were someone who said, oh, yeah. Ten years ago. He cheated me or ten years ago. I saw him beating up somebody areas drunk or they would have come forward. They would be publicized a great deal the best. They could do. Was to get three different women. None of whom had any corroborating evidence. Who are charging them with being a jerk freshman year of college or in high school? And sorry that doesn't take away the idea that he has lived a lifetime showing himself to be a man of decency character kindness. Encourage President Trump concluded. Margaret elisas presence tonight reminds us what his historic event all about your father is all about. It's about what kind of a nation. We're going to be and what kind of a country our children will inherit it is up to each of us into all Americans watching tonight to answer that question. Is up to us to. Reclaim our heritage of equal and impartial. Justice. It is up to us to rededicate ourselves to be traditions and wisdom of our founders, and it is up to us to renew the bonds of love loyalty and affection that link us all together as one great American.

"O R Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the morning on seven ten w o r. Good morning, everybody on a Wednesday morning. It is over the ten thousand and eighteen of girl doing well. Michael Riedel, Joe barley, you guys. Good. You have nothing to crow about today. No great excitement in the Trump administration. Listen to Justice Cavanaugh. Right place or yes. Unlike Clarence Thomas, actually asked questions a lot of them yesterday is first day on the job. I found it interesting. He wasn't shy. He jumped right into the cases and challenged the lawyers. That's because he's a very fine. Judge should be on the supreme court. Even though the the store the the cases he's dealing with sound incredibly boring. A lot of them are can you tell what those three cases are about. No. Is Justice Roberts given the controversy surrounding the cabin. Yes. Yes. It is. He going to bring cases that are really going to be incendiary now, or is the supreme court gonna have the year of just kind of granular sorts. They'll do either. I think the case studies at Robertson drift towards the middle and become the swing visa swing vote. Yeah. He is is is going to be about drifting. But he's the swing vote right upheld. He upheld on Bombardier did. But I'll be does not become like a suit or somebody like that. Who you know, you thought you got a Republican or a conservative in there? And then he drifts too far to the left. Sandra day. It's not gonna happen to cavenaugh. Hey, our big three every one of these items. You could say I didn't see that one coming. Here comes hurricane. Michael major cat for barreling toward the Florida handle of Florida, panhandle. Also in the big three, Nikki Haley ups and quits. Yeah. That was a common. She literally quit about two minutes. After we went off the air. Her didn't show to do here. Natalie didn't get in touch with her to say come on we needed a segment at nine fifty. And now really it did happen as soon as we went off they're shocked. I was what what what what what did. I miss. It didn't happen until eleven it was announced earlier rumor came out the tweet came out. I thought that was going to be like hashtag metoo movement. You know, she was like a New Jersey schoolteacher now started rounding out the peak. Was there was some ethics questions about her? There were airplanes planes came out from some liberal democratic rag, of course, which what kind of the New York Times. I forget someone came up with the story some came up with the story this us using some private airplanes and rounding out our big three. They came close, but the ninth inning comeback fell short. So the Red Sox? Eliminate the Yankees in the Bronx three games to one four to three was the final score. So, you know, this more questions and answers about Nikki Haley, and and the guy's got all the answers for us this morning. Connor Finnegan ABC news correspondent he's over at the State Department. Good morning to you, Connor. Good morning guys. So we didn't see this coming. Did you know and the short answer for me here? See department is that very few people in this building. If anyone really saw this coming either I actually talked to one source who said that the bureau within the department that sort of is the ways on between the State Department in the US mission at the United Nations still hadn't gone in official resignation confirmation from her team as about noon yesterday, really something that was non expected. I think many people sort of thought that she would go out on her own terms possibly go out after two years. But but that announcement yesterday morning was clearly not expected by many people, but we have not Connor seen the last of Nikki Haley, Lenin, and I were discussing this morning that she could well become the first woman elected to the White House. I mean, she's got popularity charisma intelligence her career is by no means over. No, no by by any such a nation. And I think for her you know, that sort of why she's leaving now she leaves on good terms with Trump with the Trump administration with Trump's supporters. She can go on to be successful make some money in the private sector, which is what she she did before she ever entered politics. And she's also got that strong solid trajectory. She was a state Representative on the local level, a very popular governor in South Carolina through some emotional and difficult times. And now on the world stage at the United Nations just got really strong foreign policy credentials, which is sometimes difficult for a lot of governors to do before they jump to the White House. You know, and as I said, she's also got the support of many Democrats. It was interesting to think Bob Menendez of all people the top democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations committee actually praised her in his press statement yesterday calling her, you know, a strong voice for human rights in the world. Stage with Connor Finnegan ABC news correspondent the State Department. I I haven't heard anything negative about her at all. But you know, the the story did drift out yesterday that there was some question about our use of private planes. Is that is that a big issue or is that just a noise? I think it's a little bit of noise. I think it was office of government ethics filing report, very standard for any government official to have to reveal some of their finances any gifts that they've received and she had gotten these flights. But she has listed all them she'd done everything sort of by the book pile all the proper paperwork. What was more interesting to need in those reports with the amount of credit card debt, the mortgages that she has the fact if she's actually kind of strapped for cash, which can give you an idea of why someone would wanna leave government service after about a decade of it to make some more money selling books or speaking on the on the speaker, circuit is she also has two younger kids. I think they're both in their teens or so she's gotta make some money putting through college and everything like that. Can you give us some insight into her relationship with Trump because you know, Trump has had some rather complex relationships with other people around him, and they have not turned out so well, but she's going out in a classy way, and he really seems to respect her. How does she handle this guy that most people have no idea how to handle? Yeah. You know, it's a great question. And I think more than any other cabinet official. She's done it. So definitely she has managed to separate herself from him on certain issues right at the nation's she's talking very tough on Russia in a way that the president is reluctant to do to put it nicely. She's also gone out of her way to speak up for human rights and something that the president is also pretty quiet on in general, but there's never been that gap. If you remember the former secretary of State Rex Tillerson, whenever he would say anything it seemed like Trump would contradict him on North Korea on on climate change. And that's why Trump at the end of the day fire games because there was very public goals between the two of them that'd be very minute. Very apparent to to foreign dignitaries around the world who would meet with Tillerson that he didn't speak for the president. Nikki Haley, though, I think because as you said, she has that charm. She's she's a politician. And at the end of the day. I think the president knew that she didn't need in. She didn't need this job. But she was so affected for him. Because she was that strong boys because you know, she she was a woman in the cabinet where there were very few women. And and she could then be given that leeway to June thinks she wanted. I think it also helps her frankly that she was in New York and Washington DC. Caught up in all the chaos of the the day to day down here at the White House. All right who replaces Nikki Haley, she's going to sustain a job enough. A couple of months, then who do you think Trump picks? Classic Trump fashion. He said last night that he has a short list of five people that he will not tell us who the people are except for one person. And I think that's important the leading candidate. I would say at this point is Dina Powell who now works in New York at Goldman Sachs. She spent about a year in the Trump administration as the deputy national security adviser. So she's got, you know, the relationships with some of the Trump Stanley Ivanka and Jared in particular, she's also close with Nikki Haley, interestingly she Nikki Haley, posted a photo of the two of them over the weekend at South Carolina with their husbands on a boat sort of you know, reading the tea leaves over Twitter feed yesterday, it seemed like that was a tacit endorsement of Powell as her successor. And the president has said Nikki Haley will be involved in that process. The only thing that's going against how to say number one. Does she want the job, you know, she left after a year? Mainly because she was sort of burned out by out chaotic the White House had been the second question is, you know, there's the more nationalist Steve Bannon wing of the White House allow her to get the job it's rumored that John Bolton is not so much of a fan. Staff. John Kelly may not be much of an but at the end of the day. She's the US ambassador to the nation. So she's in New York, and she's not directly working with those people in the same way that a secretary of state were for example. All right. Connor finnegan? Thanks to the insight. Some good stuff. ABC news correspondent the State Department. Thanks, connor. Thank you. All right. How about a vodka the people that.

Perfectly clermont's president if Democrats retake congress, quote progressives, expect them to use their full power to get cavenaugh off the bench both parties are season. On the cavenaugh confirmation as their midterm rallying cry. Liberals are furious about how the process was run. Conservatives are furious would liberals over there demonstrations and over how the confirmation hearings themselves were run to that point leader McConnell says the left has been trying to bully the American people. But fortunately, the American people know that they've fact free politics of hate fear and intimidation or not how we actually govern in our Democratic Republic, Democrats and many of their liberal allies refute those allegations, and the demonstrators many of whom are women have held several protests that have seized on the growing anti Cavanaugh outrage, which they see as an extension of the metoo movement, the two issues collided when more than one woman alleged Cavanaugh committed sexual assault when he was in high school and college cavenaugh consistently denied all of those allegations, Democrats and Republicans alike, say the cavenaugh nomination and subsequent confirmation as energize their base.

"Time. The Democrats try to rally support to take down President Trump. They end up looking like comic foils. And now, I can't stop laughing at them. It's the same for example. Cory Booker Senator Cory Booker from New Jersey who like Kamala Harris, and a bunch of others are rumored to to be seeking the presidency. Which is kind of. I don't know. Who knows if they can it's going to be an interesting primary put it that way. I'm looking forward to it. I'm looking forward to the primary and and the midterms anyway. Senator Booker is one of many people that have been questioning Cavanaugh who was the latest pick Justice Cavanaugh the latest pick for the supreme court by President Trump and he on numerous occasions. You know, how he I just hit my glasses on the Mike. I'm okay on numerous occasions. Senator Booker has grandstanded. Now, if you're familiar with Senator Booker, if you're from New Jersey, if you're from Philly Penske that neck of the woods, you know, just like everybody has a grandstand. Senator dick Durbin is another one. They're just wow there. They just love it. They love it. And at one point Senator Grassley who's heading the committee's chairman. He said the Senator Booker this morning. Yes. Yes. I know how many times are you gonna keep saying that over and over? And that's why it becomes funny because it starts out. Do you get the impression, and I do when I when you look at some of the great thinkers of the democrat party, like Stephen Colbert, and Chelsea handler enjoy some of these legendary minds, don't you get the impression they take themselves a little too seriously, and why they are protesting and falling down and throwing bricks through Starbucks and writing F Trump on the side of the bus that President Trump and the rest of America, we're getting things done. Don't you get that impression? For example. We're working on another tax cut right now. Trump's working on round two of the tax cuts to make them permanent. That's what they're doing today. That's what they're doing this afternoon. President Trump is an out by the pool crying having ice cream with wolf Blitzer commiserating with van Jones know, he's working. He's getting it done every single day. President Trump delivers something. Do you know that when the woman in entrepreneurship act was signed? I think it was a month ago. The coverage was next to nothing the women in entrepreneurship act signed by Donald Trump. Unemployment rate at a seventeen year low manufacturing jobs at a twenty four year high. Crickets, it's a shame. It's a shame. But as rich said earlier our guy that used to be with the national security. That's one of the most amazing things about President Trump. Imagine if President Donald Trump had the love and support and admiration and. What's the word? I'm looking for. Well, it was it was fan worship that Obama had think about the way the news media. Treated Obama covered. Obama no matter what. Now, it's almost the polar. Opposite would president Donald J Trump? In other words, I it it almost appears whether it's the New York Times or USA today or the Washington Post or any other newspaper that's slowly going out of business. It seems like they have these meetings in the morning, and it's they almost throw it around the room. All right. What are we got to take Trump? What do you got? Well, we got cavenaugh thing. We're going to dig up some racial, profiling booker's going to ramble on about that a lot of people won't read the memos. They won't be the wiser. Okay. We got that. What else we got who had any any porn stars hanging around or anything anything from his childhood? We can bring up now. Okay. What about this? What about Woodward's book we have Woodward on, and we could have Woodward start to cry. Yeah. That's it. We'll have Woodward cry say Trump is so bad. But this is what I this is the impression it's not only my impression, it's not just talk radio people and hardcore Trump people, and I'm a hardcore Trump supporter, I'm not gonna lie because ninety nine percent of the time. When people say something about Trump, I say, so. So he's sporadic. He changes his mind. He's occasionally reckless. So so what is there a politician that isn't? And here's the other thing if one more person says to me, Trump needs to be more like a politician. That's the problem. He's not a politician. Do you know what people think about politicians? They hate him. They can't stand. What how do you insult somebody you? Call him a politician. I don't know about that guy. If we should hire him for the job. He's a real politician. He's he's really political. I don't know if he's the right guy for the job. He's a he's a politician, and you want Trump to be a politician. You cannot win with a very small group of people. They're always gonna wind. Okay. And you can never win with the Democrats trying to appease them. So don't don't try to appease them. Let's go to Karl in Charleston, South Carolina, one of the most beautiful historic cities on the planet. Welcome Charles to the Rush Limbaugh show Carl but tomato tomato did I what did I call? You. Did I call you? Well, I could've called you Mace. I'm actually envious. Go with that moniker until you got Mace out of the other guy. Now, I'm on. I don't have a good. It's a nickname Thursday. You know, what I have a feeling the Limbaugh crews already all over that? I'll be I'll be fifty nine and four days. So well, happy birthday. Right. Well, thank you so much. You know, they say wisdom is what you get five seconds. After you need it. Here's what I'm thinking. Old tricks are the best tricks and Woodward and Bernstein got a D through through New York Times and brought down Nixon. And now all of a sudden, we've got this obscure memo. Right under Woodward gets a new book that everybody's going. It's not that book. I postulate did it is remotely possible. And certainly were asking. Yeah. Maybe Mr. Woodward or those around him have decided to create a new deep throat for us. 'cause as you may recall. They tore up the news media that was twenty four hour news cycle this mysterious deep throat, and we didn't get an answer for forty years. Right. Sit there for a while. Right. If it worked against Nixon, and perhaps just speculating that, you know, old tricks work. We haven't tried this winter in a long time. Let's pull the trigger on a whole new deep throat. And you know, the thing that's makes it even more frustrating though. There's really no there there with Trump. That's the other part of the equation other words, there was a problem. There were issues with Nixon. There was a gallery. People went to jail. He did resign. It was not pretty it was bad for the country and the GOP that's not the case with Trump. You just have a bunch of disgruntled babies. Just maybe like, I said, maybe the agent perspective, maybe have a different view on this. But it wouldn't surprise me at all if they're pulling the trigger on her new Detroit. But anyway, thank you for your doing. Thank you Carl. I appreciate it and happy birthday. Eight hundred two eight to twenty eight eighty two. It's the Rush Limbaugh show. My name's Ken Matthews still to come. We are going to talk to Selena Zito very important stuff coming up in the two o'clock hour, and there's a Twitter attack going on. And there's some real ridiculousness going on with that. And the most frustrating thing, and we've had this discussion before if the national news media would spend the time that they spend chasing the Trump ghost and the anonymous memos in essays, and the the things that are written on the first lady's coat when she goes someplace if they would take that effort and do investigative journalism. Think of what we might learn we we might learn what really happened with the Clinton foundation and Haiti or we might learn what? It really happened with fast and furious or how much money did Hillary pay Michael Steele and her campaign or how much Russian investment came back to people connected to the Hillary campaign that would be such an exciting. Actually, that's a free idea. That's a lead. If you're sitting around the New York Times office right now, and and you're about to go over to the port authority bus station and have someone write another memo that would be a great lead for you. The whole campaign finance thing. Which for some reason, the news media seems to ignore when they like the president. I'm Ken Matthews on the Rush Limbaugh show. We'll.
