With billions of dollars allocated to broadband funding in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the future of the FCC's Universal Service Fund (USF) is a hotly debated topic. Now, with multiple lawsuits challenging the very legality of the USF contribution system, as well as new guidance from the Supreme Court on the limits of […]
There is a heaviness in the air - Betsey and Ken have personal connections to Highland Park, Illinois. The review events of July 4th and the horrific shooting by yet another 18-year-old with powerful weapons, legally obtained. America's obsession with guns is nothing new. The dark web is a place that glamorizes and glorifies violence. Ken talks about two California friends who visited Top's Market in Buffalo, New York, and met with a victim's family. Anger can be channeled into purposeful change. The January 6 hearings have filled in the detail with powerful witnesses who have exposed the planning which led to the insurrection. While conservatives (Fox News) complain about the disruption of Justice Kavanaugh's dinner by protesters, at the same time they downplay the assault on the US Capitol. All of this hard news seems to be prompting a positive response - we've got work to do as the mid-terms approach.Become a Patron: www.patreon.com/beachedwhitemaleSlayer Pete on Fox News SundaySupport the show

Being an ally is more than just recognizing the humanity of our neighbors, it's recognizing that arguments to the contrary make you part of the problem.11:39This caller got to learn about the evils of LGBTQ and poly folks from a religious friend. He also got recommended church instead of actual therapy. We all have a little laugh, but Robert hits the nail on the head when he says, “Make sure you can tell the difference between a doctor and a pastor.”20:25Xeno calls in to make yet another ontological argument for God, and Robert meets his claims with exactly the right reaction: uproarious laughter. Meanwhile, Vi points out the exact reason that Xeno's argument doesn't work using set theory, and Xeno suddenly needs to go… 35:10Uncle Beck wants to shout out just how important it is to have allies that are willing to go to bat. You can find Uncle Beck's channel here: https://www.youtube.com/c/BeNoJustBe 38:26If we need to pick one, should we pick skepticism or critical thinking? This caller thinks that addressing spiritual abuse is an easier pill to swallow if it doesn't include any extra baggage. Our hosts counter that just like leaving any other abusive relationship, recognizing the signs of abuse can prevent those who have suffered abuse from falling into it again in the future.1:00:15Does it really matter if bad reasoning is used to de-radicalize people? Vi shoots back that the problem isn't deradicalization, it's perpetuating bad thinking! If the louder person seems to “win” the debate, it's only a matter of time before listeners are convinced bv a louder person. The better tactic is to place less value on the “debate bro” culture in the first place.For more information about the Federalist Society, check out this article by the Harvard Gazette: https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/stor... 1:16:50Nick has been placed in a church mediation program to determine if he is allowed to communicate with his siblings.

Norm opens the show discussing the function of the Supreme Court of the United States—to say what the law is—by examining the history of the Court under Chief Justice Earl Warren, who served on the Court from 1953 to 1969. The Constitution certainly is not written in granite, but certainly the outrage we are seeing—"the crisis in the air"—illustrates the true cultural polarity in the modern American scene. Norm also discusses the next major inflection point in American politics: the administrative state. That is, the Court's opinion in the EPA case reflects what many Americans have been saying for the last several years; that we are not a nation governed by experts. Why, then, is the Court's direction to Congress to step in and provide guidance to the EPA so important right now? Norm then points out to the listener a fascinating book written in 1971, "Critical Elections and the Mainsprings of American Politics" by Walter Dean Burnham. Burnham asked what it was that defines how our political parties attach themselves to our cultural issues. Norm has had an ambivalent relationship with the Federalist Society for as long as it has existed. Why? And what is the future of the Federalist Society? In the second hour, Norm focuses on the Randy Cox case making headlines. He is then joined by LAL regular, Kevin Alan, who is running for Lt. Governor of Connecticut on the Libertarian ticket. And Norm is also joined by the Libertarian candidate for Governor, Aaron Lewis. Why would a Connecticut resident give a Libertarian candidate his or her vote? Like, share, and subscribe!

Emma hosts Matt Huber, professor of Geography at Syracuse University, to discuss his recent book Climate Change As Class War: Building Socialism On A Warming Planet. Fun Half Link: https://youtu.be/7VBSIZSyn7o First, Emma walks through updates on Boris Johnson's official resignation, the police's response to their role in the Highland Park shooter acquiring his gun, Biden's anti-abortion judicial nom having been delayed due to… the overturn of Roe v. Wade, and another Robb Elementary teachers speaking out on the Texas police response (or lack thereof). Then, Matt Huber joins as he and Emma dive right into this conflict between systemic critiques and critiques on individual consumption, looking at the former as a straightforward critique that looks to those in control of production, rather than one that dances around capitalism's inherent issues by deputizing the professional-managerial class to police the carbon footprints of themselves and others. After expanding on the role of free-market ideology in promoting the idea that we, the consumers, shape production – rather than the people that control production – Emma and Matt dive deeper into the climate activism found in the PMC and how this hyper-educated class attempts to marshall their credentials for advantages in the labor market, calling out the right's roles in the “lies” and “denial” in popular discourse, rather than how they (and the Democrats) sanction fossil fuel extraction for profit (and thus avoiding the easy solution of nationalizing the energy industries). Next, Huber walks through the different archetypes of PMC climate activists, and their individualist, self-centered tactics, before they wrap up the interview by tackling the importance of deindustrialization that is led by industrial workers, and discussing the pros and cons of a degrowth mindset. And in the Fun Half: Emma is joined by Matt and Brandon as Chris from the Bay Area inquires about the lack of a left version of the Federalist Society, Boris Johnson resigns, and Ryan from Tennessee gives a rather disturbing update on the state of his local police department. The crew also dives into updates on Brittney Griner's detainment in Russia, Majorie Taylor Greene can't believe July 4th parades were shot up when Pride JUST happened. The Dark Horse podcast gives their pair (note: NOT peer) review about an article on vaccines, and Margaret from PA uplifts Emma's talents before getting into her state's governor race.

After a break, Betsey Newenhuyse is back for Beach Talk. Ken reviews his experience on the Civil Rights Tour of the South. The Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the Capitol called a special meeting, introducing Cassidy Hutchinson, top aid to Mark Meadows, White House Chief of Staff to the former President. Her testimony takes us into the White House as the violent attack on the Capitol as Congress convened to affirm the state-certified electors of the Electoral College. Ken and Betsey sort through the evidence. It's reminiscent of the Watergate Hearings and the breakout testimony of White House Counsel, John Dean. They also review the decision of the Supreme Court to reverse Roe V. Wade, exposing the court's conservative majority as a political friend of the "Pro-Life" political faction. It's the Federalist Society's dream come true - and more is to come. The celebration and claims that the Pro-Life movement will suddenly provide care for needy women sound hollow and disingenuous.

As soon as Thursday, the Supreme Court could rule on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. A leaked draft opinion in that case showed a majority of justices agreeing to overturn Roe v. Wade, which would end the constitutional right to an abortion. However the court rules, this moment is the culmination of a decades-long effort by conservative activists around the country. One man in particular has played an outsized role in that effort: Leonard Leo, Co-Chairman of the Federalist Society. He's devoted his career to getting conservatives appointed to the country's most powerful courts.We look at how he came to have so much sway.In this episode, you'll hear excerpts from the interview NPR's Deirdre Walsh conducted with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Emma hosts Devon Carbado, professor at the UCLA School of Law, to discuss his recent book Unreasonable: Black Lives, Police Power, and the Fourth Amendment. First, Emma runs through recent news from Ginni Thomas' communications with John Eastman about overturning the election, to the Fed raising interest and likely triggering a recession just to undermine worker power and the effect of gas price gouging on inflation. Then she's joined by Professor Devon Carbado as they dive right into the relationship between the Fourth Amendment and the police state, as this constitutional statute from 1791 has provided access to and control over Black people and their bodies, first looking at the qualification of “search and seizure” as the only police actions that are protected, to the insanely low standards of what it means for police accostings to be “reasonable,” such as confronting someone in a high crime area. They then dive into the 1968 decision in Terry v. Ohio that affirmed the police's right to stop and frisk without probable cause, provided that they meet the even lower standard of “reasonable suspicion,” setting the stage for one of the least effective and most violating “investigatory” tools, which still maintains its legality even after the NYPD failed to claim reasonable suspicion in Floyd, et al. v City of New York. Next, Professor Carbado walks through the stages of Black oppression in the US and the refusal by the right the understand and acknowledge the history throughout these developments, before he takes on the various levels of policing in this country that put Black people and people of color in more direct confrontation with the police, including the fact that repeated exposure increases the probability of being harmed, the culture of police and their unions, qualified immunity, and the impossibility of holding them to account. Emma and the Professor then look to Whren v United States and the Supreme Court's (including RBG) affirmation of racial profiling, discussing how this decision as well aided the beaurocratization of racism and classism that we saw so clearly in Ferguson, with police fines making up over a quarter of the city's budget. They wrap up the interview by diving deeper into the judicial system's role, how the right's specificity in targeting precedent and setting up legal apparatus like the Federalist Society allows them to stack the courts for their agenda, and what the Left can learn from that. And in the Fun Half: Emma is joined by Matt and Brandon as they take on the complex anti-hero that is Anna Sorokin, as she begins to dip her feet into NFTs, Noah from Tampa debates Emma on why her college athletic takes are exactly right, Bro Flamingo calls in to discuss the downplaying of the 1/6 coup attempt on both the right and left, and they all dive into the idea of Republicans actually being held accountable. Candace Owens comes after parental rights, Eric Adams “reallocates” funding from education to the NYPD, and AOC responds to the fact that she was called out by name by 1/6 rioters.

On May 5, Politico published a leaked draft of the majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health, written by Justice Samuel Alito, that would overturn Roe v. Wade. How did we get here? In the first of three episodes dedicated to answering that question, Matt and Sam talk to Peter, Rhiannon, and Michael of the 5-4 Podcast about the conservative legal movement's role and the right's use of the courts in achieving their aims. What were the main arguments in the leaded Dobbs decision, and where did these ideas come from? How important was opposition to abortion rights to the development of originalism and organizations like the Federalist Society? What function has the Federalist Society served in the conservative takeover of the Supreme Court? Also discussed in this episode: the relationship between radical, violent anti-abortion groups and the broader anti-abortion legal movement, the narrower victories the right won against abortion rights along the way, and what might come next from an emboldened conservative movement with the Supreme Court on their side.Sources:Josh Gerstein and Alexander Ward, "Supreme Court Has Voted to Overturn Abortion Rights, Draft Opinion Shows," Politico, May 5, 20225-4 Podcast, "Dobbs v.

Join America's Roundtable co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy with Professor John Yoo, Emanuel Heller Professor of Law at the University of California at Berkeley, Nonresident Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University and Former Deputy Assistant Attorney General at the U.S. Department of Justice. The enlightening conversation focuses on the vital issues impacting our nation including the inexorable growth of an unaccountable administrative state, the significance of "natural rights" and the future of the courts, the First and Second Amendments and on recent developments in China and the Indo-Pacific region. From CSPAN: “What happened at the Court is tremendously bad,” remarked Justice Clarence Thomas about the recently-leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion that would strike down Roe v. Wade. Justice Thomas elaborated, saying that the leak does damage to the rule of law and institutions in general. “You can't have a civil society--a free society--without a stable legal system,” he added. His remarks came during an interview at the Old Parkland Conference in Dallas. He also discussed other issues including free speech at colleges and universities, the influence that his mentor Thomas Sowell had on him, his disagreement on always abiding by legal precedent, and his disapproval of protests that happen near public officials' homes.

By forbidding Congress to delegate its legislative authority elsewhere, this rule ensures that only elected legislators will make the laws that bind Americans or limit their liberties." —The Supreme Court's Chance to Restore Political Accountability (https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-supreme-court-restore-political-accountability-epa-west-virginia-carbon-dioxide-legislation-policy-11646002070), The Wall Street Journal commentary by Peter J.

Should Supreme Court Justices Believe in Natural Rights? — Newsweek (https://www.aei.org/op-eds/should-supreme-court-justices-believe-in-natural-rights/) By John Yoo Brief excerpt: "In her answer, Judge Jackson accurately identifies the Declaration of Independence as one of the leading explications of natural rights in American history. But if she has no position on natural rights, as she wrote in response to Senator Cruz, then she has no position on the Declaration of Independence. Her answers did not come under the pressured circumstances of live hearings, but instead came as written answers to written questions after the end of her Judiciary Committee hearings. We should view them not as a mistake, but as her carefully considered views on the matter. Again, she puts herself in opposition to the Great Emancipator, who once said “I never had a feeling politically that did not spring from the sentiments embodied in the Declaration of Independence.” In an 1859 letter, Lincoln memorably wrote on the occasion of Thomas Jefferson's birthday: All honor to Jefferson—to the man who, in the concrete pressure of a struggle for national independence by a single people, had the coolness, forecast, and capacity to introduce into a merely revolutionary document, an abstract truth, applicable to all men and all times, and so to embalm it there, that to-day, and in all coming days, it shall be a rebuke and a stumbling-block to the very harbingers of re-appearing tyranny and oppression."

Today's show focuses primarily on how Democrats used Abortion as a fundraising ploy but never cared to pass a law protecting it. Plus Ukraine, and the recent attack on Dave Chapelle. The Democrats had decades to pass a law making abortion legal. They didn't. Now Nancy Pelosi says she wants to pass that law, but at the same time supports anti abortion Democrats like Congressman Henry Cuellar. New evidence has emerged showing Joe Biden could have done more to stop Putin's invasion of Ukraine. Dave Chapelle was attacked by a homeless lunatic. Why was Chapelle's security team allowed to break the guy's arm and then stomp him in the face? Topics: Dave Chappelle physically attacked on stage; Federal Reserve raises interest rates; Stock Market tanks; Progressive Champion Nina Turner loses big in Ohio primary; Does Putin have cancer?; Is America helping Ukraine kill all those Russian generals?; Nancy Pelosi says she wants legislation that enshrines a woman's right to choose, so why is she endorsing Pro Life Congressman Henry Cuellar instead of Jessica Cisneros?
