System of courts that interprets and applies the law
States have begun the process of drawing up new local and congressional districts. With almost a year until November 2022, parties in control have begun the process of redistricting, but critics say it's actually “gerrymandering” -- drawing districts that will put them in advantageous positions come election day next year. Managing Editor of Sabato's Crystal Ball at UVA Center for Politics, Kyle Kondik explains how parties have been redrawing districts maps to improve their position ahead of the midterms, the history behind districting rules, how partisan gerrymandering can be executed legally, and why Republicans seem likely to take control of the House in 2022 given their geographical and redistricting advantages.

FOX's Alex Hogan speaks to Dominik Stillhart, Director of Operations at the International Committee of the Red Cross, about his recent trip to Afghanistan and the current fears there.
The Supreme Court is set to consider a case today that could potentially undo Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion in the U.S. The High Court will hear a challenge to a 2018 Mississippi law that would ban most abortions at 15 weeks of pregnancy. Pro-choice advocates and lower courts say that the law violates women's rights. However, pro-life advocates say it is time to change the long-standing precedent regarding abortion. Constitution expert and FOX News Contributor Jonathan Turley previews what he calls "most consequential abortion case in decades," speculates how the more conservative Court could rule and what would happen if Roe v. Wade is actually overturned. Concern over the Omicron variant of COVID-19 has been making waves across the globe and in the U.S. stocks took a dive while health officials issued warnings. President Biden spoke out, telling Americans not to panic and assuring them shutdowns would not be used to combat the pandemic. Dr. Jerome Adams, 20th U.S. Surgeon General and Director of Health Equity Initiatives at Purdue University joins to discuss why we still need more information on the severity of the Omicron variant, why this variant's multiple mutations could be cause for concern, and the need for the federal government to create more sensible policies on COVID-19 while the states make their own choices.

The process of the U.S. evacuation from Afghanistan is under deeper scrutiny after a Congressional memo from Senate Republicans cited allegations that the Biden administration has only vetted a small portion of the 82,000 refugees brought into the U.S. Congressman Michael Waltz (R-FL), an Afghanistan War veteran, joins to break down why he believes a rushed evacuation has resulted in a weakened vetting process and to discuss the importance of slowing down the vetting to prevent compromising national security. He later discusses the threat ISIS-K and al-Qaeda pose to the U.S., how the loss of our intelligence operations in that region create vulnerabilities and why he believes Afghanistan is an issue that is here to s stay. Bail Reform is a growing movement especially with many on the left. Advocates argue many poor people cannot afford to pay bail after they are arrested and wind up serving days, weeks and sometimes even years for a crime they have yet to be convicted of. Critics, however, say bail reform and low bails are releasing dangerous criminals too soon and putting communities in danger. Jim Trusty, a former federal prosecutor, discusses the bail reform debate and how states and cities can address the problems of the bail system without releasing dangerous people. Plus, commentary from FOX News Contributor Liz Peek
The emergence of the coronavirus variant Omicron has the world worried. The United States and other nations were quick to halt travel from South Africa and other countries where it has been discovered. International markets also fell Friday, as fear spread. With Americans returning home from their long Thanksgiving weekends, there is concern America can see a significant surge this holiday season. Dr. Amesh Adalja, an infectious disease specialist at Johns Hopkins University, discusses what is known and not known about the Omicron strain, how viruses mutate, and what can be done worldwide to address new variants.

Maybe it's the sinking poll numbers or the rising prices, but the White House is already confronted with questions about the President's plans for 2024. And after just ten months in office, spokesman Jen Psaki has already tried to reassure the press, and his opponents that he does plan to run again.

Black Friday has been important for the retail industry for generations.

NASA has launched their DART (Double Asteroid Redirection Test) mission rocket in an attempt to test humankind's ability to alter the course of an asteroid that could cause devastation if it were to hit Earth. If a chunk of celestial debris just a few hundred meters wide were to hit the Earth, it could cause continent wide devastation. FOX's John Saucier speaks to FOX's Phil Keating about the launch and this test mission to prevent a future disaster.
This week, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed that President Biden intends to run for reelection in 2024. There's been speculation by many about whether he would seek a second term due to his age. The President would be 82 if reelected for a second term, plus his recent poll numbers have declined due to rising inflation in the U.S. Howard Kurtz, host of "MediaBUZZ" on the FOX News Channel and the Media BUZZMeter podcast weighs in on the possibility of President Biden running, how it would be different from his previous presidential election and the obstacles he will and is currently facing. With gas prices at their highest level since September of 2014, President Biden said that the Department of Energy would be releasing 50 million barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

FOX's Trey Yingst speaks to Todd Harrison, Director of the Aerospace Security Project and Defense Budget Analysis at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), about the international condemnation of the test and the history of the militarization of space.
Nearly 11 months ago, on his first day in office, President Joe Biden issued an executive order implementing a set of ethics rules for his administration. The administration has had fewer ethics problems than its predecessor, but the Executive Branch is not alone in the government; Congress and the Judiciary have ethics issues that need improvement. Project on Government Oversight Government Affairs Manager Dylan Hedtler-Gaudette and former OGE Director and POGO Senior Ethics Fellow Walter Shaub co-wrote an analysis of how Congress can address corruption headlined “American Voters Say Corruption is a Concern; Congress Should Heed the Message.” They joined the show to discuss how to address corruption across all three branches of government.
I'm Peter Serefine and this is your Liberty Minute for Tuesday, day 618 of 15 days to flatten the curve. President Joe Biden has picked Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell to serve a second four-year term. Bank stocks rose while the S&P 500 and NASDAQ hit record highs after the announcement. I'm really not sure if those are good signs or bad ones. The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Jerry Nadler is urging the Department of Justice to charge Kyle Rittenhouse after he was found not guilty by Wisconsin. Think about that statement. The chair of the JUDICIARY committee wants federal charges. Translation, the chair of the JUDICIARY committee cares more about political posturing than the justice system. A new CBS/YouGov poll showed that nearly two-thirds of Americans said the U.S. economy is in bad shape citing reasons like; inflation and rising costs, surging gas prices, a shortage of products and services, and businesses still not back to normal.

Unlike the previous infrastructure bill, the BBB has purely partisan support. FOX News Congressional Correspondent Chad Pergram explains what's next and what the Congressional Budget Office says about the plan. Russia launched anti-satellite missile tests this week, destroying a target and sending debris hurtling through space.

The United States saw its first confirmed case of COVID-19 as early as January 2020 and since then the virus has infected nearly 50 million Americans and caused more than 750,000 deaths. Many questions about the origins of the virus remain unanswered, however a group of bipartisan senators is now calling for a 9/11-style commission to investigate the COVID-19 outbreak and help improve the U.S. pandemic response.

We have heard the word "transitory" a lot this year, when explaining inflation, the rise in the prices of goods would be temporary as we transition out of the coronavirus pandemic. Yet as we approach the upcoming holiday season though, it seems inflation isn't leaving anytime soon.

Florida Republican Senator Rick Scott joins to talk about how inflation and big spending are going to help Republicans in the upcoming 2022 Midterms. COVID-19 cases are seeing a resurgence in pockets of the United States, causing concern that the Delta variant will persist as winter weather creates ideal conditions for viral transmission.

Dr. Marc Siegel, Professor of Medicine at NYU Langone Health and Fox News Medical Contributor joins to discuss why waning immunity from the vaccine should incentivize greater booster eligibility, how natural immunity factors into immunization, and how COVID-19 may impact the holidays and large gatherings. Plus, commentary by Jimmy Failla, host of "Fox Across America."
Why have conservatives decried 'activist judges'? And why have liberals - and America's powerful legal establishment - emphasized qualifications and experience over ideology? The Judicial Tug of War: How Lawyers, Politicians, and Ideological Incentives Shape the American Judiciary (Cambridge UP, 2020) tackles these questions with a new framework for thinking about the nation's courts, 'the judicial tug of war', which not only explains current political clashes over America's courts, but also powerfully predicts the composition of courts moving forward. As the text demonstrates through novel quantitative analyses, a greater ideological rift between politicians and legal elites leads politicians to adopt measures that put ideology and politics front and center - for example, judicial elections. On the other hand, ideological closeness between politicians and the legal establishment leads legal elites to have significant influence on the selection of judges. Ultimately, the judicial tug of war makes one point clear: for good or bad, politics are critical to how judges are selected and whose interests they ultimately represent. Adam Bonica is Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Stanford University. His research has been published in journals such as the American Journal of Political Science, Political Analysis, Journal of Economic Perspectives, Journal of Law, Economics, and Organization, and JAMA Internal Medicine. Maya Sen is Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Neighboring African countries of Ethiopia and Sudan are both embroiled in separate military conflicts that have a high probability of crossing over causing a greater conflict in the region. The United States has issued sanctions against the Eritrean military regarding the Ethiopian civil war but has held a more hands off approach to both conflicts. FOX's Trey Yingst speaks to Cameron Hudson, Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council's Africa Center, who says the Biden Administration could do more to prevent a disastrous outcome in the region.
Election polling has long been a polarizing fixture of political reporting, with many dissatisfied with the accuracy of the methodology. In the 2021 election, polling failed to predict the close race that unfolded for the New Jersey governor's seat, causing many within the polling profession to question the surveys' effectiveness. Director of the Fox News Decision Desk Arnon Mishkin joins to discuss why he believes polling in the U.S. is not broken, but we are not properly interpreting the story being told by the data. He explains the problems with horse race questions in polling surveys, how poll numbers can influence fundraising and turnout in an election, and he interprets what recent Fox polls tell us about public perception of the Biden administration ahead of 2022. On Wednesday FOX Nation will host its third annual Patriot Awards to honor America's true heroes, including military veterans, first responders and other inspirational and everyday American patriots. The event will take place at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood FL and viewers can stream it on Fox Nation.

Today's show rundown: The left says that America is back so much, that Americans are buying too much. But if you look at the sales figures, we have the same amount of consuming going on at this time last year. But the hallmarks of socialism is - a lack of goods and services, hyperinflation, and the loss of personal freedoms...sound anything like what we have going on here? All CNN can talk about is Trump, and how ineffective he was as a President, and STILL talking about the Insurrection. They aren't covering anything on what the Biden Administration I doing. Chuck talks a bit about how the Biden / Obama administration launched a non-military coup on President Trump. A man who came along, and was concerned about the American people. So what is it that the Left is all about, that they give each other awards every day...what do they actually are about. These people actually despise the American People. Kamala Harris is at a 20 percent approval rating / all time recorded record for being disliked. Her and Biden's approval ratings, in under a year are under 30 Percent. Why is this not being talked about? All we hear is "they aren't Trump". 9 out of 10 Scientists...funded by the government...agree with the government on climate change. Imagine that...people who benefit from agreeing with the government...agree with the government.
