On April 9, 2021, President Biden issued Executive Order 14023 forming the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States. The Commission is comprised of a bipartisan group of experts on the Court—from former federal judges and practitioners, to legal scholars and historians—who have been tasked with analyzing arguments and the merits and legality of proposals in the current public debate for and against Supreme Court reform. Last week, after months of research and expert testimony, the Commission released discussion materials in the form of five separate reports. It then held a public hearing to discuss the various topics and reform ideas presented, including whether to enact Supreme Court term limits, increase the number of justices on the Court, or reexamine the Court's practices and procedures. Its final report is expected on November 14. Two of the scholars who testified before the Commission—Jamal Greene of Columbia Law School and Michael McConnell of Stanford Law School—join host Jeffrey Rosen on this week's episode to discuss the Commission, which reforms they are evaluating have bipartisan support and might be achievable—and whether they should and can be enacted. The work of the National Constitution Center's Constitution Drafting Project—which both Greene and McConnell participated in as well—was also cited in both the Commission materials and in expert testimony.

Last week, as the deadline for the debt ceiling approached, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made a deal with Democrats and delivered 11 Senate Republican votes to pass a short-term debt limit extension. Many are looking to this new December deadline for raising the debt limit as a major obstacle the government will soon face in the future, as Senator McConnell and the Republicans have vowed not to help raise the debt limit again. Republican Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) joins to discuss what he calls the brinkmanship of the Democratic party and his assertion that the GOP is trying to hold the Democrats accountable for deficit spending. Later he addresses the uncertainty of a bipartisan infrastructure bill and the bipartisan consensus among lawmakers in Washington that Facebook has problems that must be addressed.   Have you ever wondered where the origin of some of our present-day laws came from? Co-host of Outnumbered on the FOX News Channel and FOX Nation host Emily Compagno is back with season two of her FOX Nation series Crimes That Changed America. This season she investigates infamous cases in American history that shaped the legislation that we now have in our country today.

It's Casual Friday! Sam hosts Heather Digby Parton, contributing writer at Salon and proprietor of the Hullaballoo blog, to wrap up the week in news. Sam and Digby jump right into the completely meaningless victory of the debt ceiling raise that Schumer and Dem leaders are pushing in the hopes to overshadow the complete stall out of Biden's Build Back Better agenda, with the only real political result being another one of countless Republican hissy fits over how Democrats treat them. However, they also cover what we learned from the debt ceiling “fight,” including Biden finally admitting the filibuster is dead weight while Manchin is willing to completely bullshit to protect it, and take a step back to discuss the complete ineptitude of Schumer and Democratic leadership in failing to find a single way to sway Manchin or Sinema to the point that “fringe” politician Bernie Sanders has had to step in. They also touch on the generally undemocratic nature of the Senate and how that emphasizes the dire and impending need for Democrats to do literally anything for Americans in need with an impending midterm. Next, they jump to the unabashed good that is bullying Senators who put their feelings ahead of their constituents, before they take on the recent leak regarding Donald Trump's attempted coup through the DOJ, as well as the Republican Party's unsurprising brush off of the reveal of this murder-suicide pact. Sam also dives in with the MR team on the Democratic Leaderships' self-congratulations for this punt of a vote, as well as touching on vaccination and vaccine approval updates. In the second half: Sam is joined by Judy Gold, host of the Kill Me Now podcast! Sam and Judy touch on all of Today's most central political issues, such as the quality of a Peloton membership, and Judy talks about the return of the comedy world under COVID (both in-person and via zoom). And in the Fun Half: The MR Team also discusses the continued judicial corruption in Steven Donziger's case against Chevron, Sam gives a lesson on the debt ceiling, and they chat about the Right's response to the DOJ probe into threats against school board members enforcing mask use, including Fox & Friends' call for the ever easy financial decision to switch to private schooling.

With yet another disappointing, yet unsurprising betrayal from our "Republican" "Leaders" in Washington DC, Chuck Schumer delivers a massive win to Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and the entire regime with a two month lifeline on debt ceiling negotiations. Charlie walks through the battle of political will being waged every day in Washington and begs the question: why does our side continue to lose every single time? He goes through and names names and calls for all 11 GOP Senators who sided with Schumer to be held accountable by We The People.

It was another week of deadlines and deal making on Capitol Hill, culminating in a Senate Vote on Thursday to raise the country's debt limit by $480 billion, thereby pushing the prospects of a default to December. Eleven Republicans, led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, voted with the Democrats to overcome a filibuster - a move that prompted criticism of McConnell from some of his fellow Republicans but also kept the country solvent, at least for a few more weeks. In Virginia, polls are tightening in the gubernatorial race between Democratic former Governor Terry McAuliffe and Republican newcomer Glenn Youngkin. The race is considered a test case for the 2022 midterms and beyond. What issues are resonating with voters, and will Virginia continue to trend blue? And a look at the latest polls. There is not great news for President Biden this week as his approval numbers continue to slide, and – perhaps not surprising but still noteworthy - new polling from the University of Virginia reveals just how many Americans are ready for a national divorce over politics.

A procedural vote on legislation that would suspend the debt limit for two years was abruptly delayed, and the Senate recessed so lawmakers could discuss next steps. “This will moot Democrats' excuses about the time crunch they created and give the unified Democratic government more than enough time to pass standalone debt limit legislation through reconciliation,” McConnell said.

Donald Trump and Sen. Elizabeth Warren actually agree on something: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell backed down Wednesday when he offered Democrats an extension of the debt ceiling until December. (As of early this morning, the two sides hadn't finalized the deal.) “McConnell caved,” said Warren. “Looks like Mitch McConnell is folding to the Democrats, again,” said Trump. Was it the filibuster? McConnell backed down after Democratic threats of nuking the filibuster for the debt ceiling started to become more real. At their Tuesday lunch, Democratic senators discussed how McConnell's blockade on the debt ceiling was boosting the case of filibuster reformers. Later that day, Biden, generally a skeptic of filibuster reform, said such a change for the debt ceiling was now a “real possibility.” Take the POLITICO Podcast Listener Survey Raghu Manavalan is the host of POLITICO's Playbook.

2690 - The New SCOTUS Term: What's On The Docket, Shadow Or Otherwise

Sam and Emma host Mark Joseph Stern, staff writer at Slate, to discuss the new Supreme Court term, and what it holds for the justices and the country at large. Dialing in on three upcoming cases, Mark, Emma, and Sam explore how the upcoming term could see a complete deconstruction of reproductive rights, the administrative state, and any attempt at gun control legislation, now that the swing vote lies in Justice Kavanaugh's lap. Starting with Roe v. Wade, they dive into Mississippi's challenge to the viability rule, and why, despite MS's attempt to prohibit abortions past 15 weeks, the Court calling their legitimacy into question no matter what likely will encourage them to dismantle Roe in general, rather than slowly dicing it up. Next, they move on to AHA v. Becerra which puts the Chevron Doctrine and Administrative State on the chopping block. First, Mark takes the time to explain what this doctrine actually is, allowing Congress to delegate the specific regulatory numbers to the relevant agencies, whether it be the EPA determining the PPM limit on Mercury in the Air, OSHA writing health regulations in the workplace, DHHS working to set drug prices, or literally any other element of the executive branch's ability to administrate. The last case they cover is New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen, which seeks to expand the 2008 ruling of DC v. Heller that redefined the Second Amendment to apply to individuals, rather than militias, working to move the right to concealed carry into the spotlight. Mark, Emma, and Sam also dive into how Trump's and McConnell's focus on the district and circuit courts, not to mention SCOTUS, has given the Republican agenda a perfect route to judicial implementation, before wrapping up the interview with a discussion on the few options for Democrats to prevent the judicial branch's infringement on democracy. Sam and Emma also touch on the developing Kelloggs strike, as well as Biden's sudden turn on the filibuster now that keeping the legitimacy of the debt ceiling has come into the fold. And in the Fun Half: The MR crew reflects a bit on the absurdity of the coercion of abortion patients by the state, including translating electrical frequencies to audio and forcing the patient to listen, and Jeremiah from Tennessee discusses the role of adoption in the abortion debate, before Ronald Raygun and Sam get into a debate over the reproductive capabilities of… apples. Sam, Emma, Matt, and Bradley then admire the production that is the Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising's new commercial that takes on the redistribution of oppression from actual oppressed people (Black and Brown folk, Trans folk, etc, etc) onto the TRUE oppressed class (embryos). They also touch on the self-destructive capacity of the Democratic party, and discuss the importance of anti-trust law and valuing Elizabeth Warren in this fight. Sam from Indiana wraps up the show with a weird debate on individual rights, bodily autonomy, and gun ownership, plus, your calls and IMs!

But the Senate veteran in the White House knows the game the minority leader is playing. We discuss that and more with Yamiche Alcindor, Robert Costa, Dr. Nahid Bhadelia, David Plouffe, and Stuart Stevens.

Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with America just 13 days away from defaulting on our nation's debt. Meanwhile, Republicans seem to have no regard for the fact that a failure to raise the debt limit could plunge the U.S. into a deep recession. Sen. Tina Smith joins The ReidOut to discuss. Plus, Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen spelled out her allegations about the dangerous effects of the social media giant she called "morally bankrupt" in congressional testimony on Tuesday. The former product manager told senators that Facebook prioritizes profit over public safety in steering users toward toxic content detrimental to the mental health of young users and undermining our democracy. Joy Reid and her panel discuss. Next, attorney Benjamin Crump, lawyer for the family of Henrietta Lacks, and her grandson Ron Lacks, discuss the lawsuit filed by her family over a pharmaceutical company's use of her cells. Finally, in "The Absolute Worst," Joy Reid critiques the members of the Republican party who have proliferated harassment and violence, some of whom are now apparently calling for decency. All this and much more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

We're in the middle of Hispanic Heritage Month, yet another 30 days of identity-focused celebration, following on the heels of Black History Month in February or Gay Pride Month in June.But while the ubiquity of the terms "Hispanic” and "Latino” might make it seem that they've always been there, Heritage Foundation senior fellow Mike Gonzalez contends that those terms were invented by Marxist activists attempting to persuade so-called Hispanics that they were oppressed."I'm very proud of [my heritage], but this amalgamation, this artificial label that is created, the officiality of it is what I'm opposed to, because I know that it is done on purpose and with malice and forethought towards the country of the United States," Gonzalez says.He joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss the Marxist history of terms like "Hispanic” and "Latino,” and to detail the radical left's plans to use identity politics to seize power.We also cover these stories:President Joe Biden announces his frustration with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., over the ongoing fight to raise the debt ceiling.McConnell tells Biden he should ask Democrats, not Republicans, to vote to raise the debt limit.Sen.
