Holding police accountable requires defending the First Amendment right to put them on camera. This is why Philip Turner, known on YouTube as The Battousai, fought to solidify that right in Turner v. Driver, a 2017 case decided by the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. However, a shocking video shows Texas police ignoring the law, detaining Turner, and confiscating his video equipment. What the officers didn't realize is that the case law resulting from the Turner v. Driver decision not only protects citizens' right to film the police, but was named after the very man whose rights they were violating!Help us continue producing radically independent news and in-depth analysis by following us and making a small donation: Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-ytSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/nl-ytLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews#firstamendment #policeaccountabilityreport #auditor

A warrant of arrest has been issued against a Deputy Commissioner of Nigerian Police Abba Kyari following his indictment in the ongoing trial of Nigerian fraudster Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, known as Hushpuppi, in the United States.The warrant was issued by Otis Wright, a judge in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, on July 26.The court instructed the Federal Bureau of Investigation to track down Kyari and produce him in the United States to face trial for his roles in the fraud.Kyari was said to have been bribed by Hushpuppi to have Chibuzo Vincent, one of his business partners, arrested in Nigeria following a dispute over a $1.1 million. The court ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation to track down Kyari and produce him in the United States to face trial for his roles in the fraud.Meanwhile, Kyari had denied the allegation in a statement on his Facebook page, but he admitted to have collected the sum of N300,000 transferred by the suspect for clothes and caps through the cloth seller's bank account. He also said Chibuzo Vincent was arrested at no cost.“Abbas who we later came to know as Hushpuppi called our office about 2 years ago that somebody in Nigeria seriously threatened to kill his Family here in Nigeria and he sent the person's Phone number and pleaded we take action before the Person attacks his family,” he said.“We traced and arrested the Suspect and after investigations we discovered there wasn't an actual threat to anyone's life. And they are long time friends who have money issues between them hence we released the Suspect on bail to go and he was not taken to any jail.

Join America's Roundtable co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy for a conversation with special guest John Yoo, Visiting Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Emanuel S. Heller Professor of Law, University of California–Berkeley School of Law, a Visiting Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, and Former Deputy Assistant Attorney General, US Department of Justice, where he worked on national security and terrorism issues after the September 11 attacks. The conversation elevates patriotic thoughts and highlights America's founding in 1776 and the advancement of the great cause of liberty. On America's Roundtable, John Yoo, Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy delve into the challenges we face in America, the push of socialism versus the American constitutional structure and how the founding generation emphasized decentralization and federalism while safeguarding checks and balances with an understanding that — "Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." The discussion also brings to the forefront the growing China threat, the communist regime's cyber-attacks, the rising military threat and the "debt-trap diplomacy" impacting nations in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region. John Yoo served as general counsel of the US Senate Judiciary Committee under its chairman, Orrin Hatch of Utah. And he has been a law clerk for Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas and US Court of Appeals judge Laurence Silberman. Socialism vs. The American Constitutional Structure: The Advantages Of Decentralization And Federalism | John Yoo Socialism is finally getting the American honeymoon it never got in the last century. But American federalism's division of power between a national government and fifty sovereign states makes difficult, if not impossible, the unified economic planning necessary to supplant capitalism. Decentralization of power, the Constitution's Framers hoped, would not just promote government effectiveness but would also protect individual liberty by encouraging Washington and the states to check each other. Our Constitution's fundamental decentralization of power does not prevent many Americans from wishing for socialism anyway. A 2019 Gallup poll found that 43 percent of adults believed socialism to be “a good thing” and 47 percent even reported that they could vote for a socialist candidate for president. While a bare majority still opposes socialism, that view loses popularity among younger Americans. Since 2010, their attitude toward capitalism has deteriorated to the point that millennials view both capitalism and socialism with equal favor at about 50 percent. That contrasts with baby boomers, who support capitalism over socialism by 68–32 percent, and Gen Xers, whose support is 61–39 percent. Source: https://www.hoover.org/research/socialism-vs-american-constitutional-structure-advantages-decentralization-and-federalism His tenth book, Defender-in-Chief: Trump's Fight for Presidential Power, was published last year by St. Martin's Press. Professor Yoo's other books include Striking Power: How Cyber, Robots, and Space Weapons Change the Rules for War (2017); Point of Attack (2014); Taming Globalization (2012); Crisis and Command (2010); War by Other Means (2016); and The Powers of War and Peace (2005).

Criminal law: Crimes against the public - Begging (aka panhandling)

Begging (also panhandling) is the practice of imploring others to grant a favor, often a gift of money, with little or no expectation of reciprocation. A person doing such is called a beggar or panhandler. Beggars may operate in public places such as transport routes, urban parks, and markets. Besides money, they may also ask for food, drink, cigarettes or other small items. Internet begging is the modern practice of asking people to give money to others via the Internet, rather than in person. Internet begging may encompass requests for help meeting basic needs such as medical care and shelter, as well as requests for people to pay for vacations, school trips, and other things that the beggar wants but cannot comfortably afford. Beggars differ from religious mendicants in that some mendicants do not ask for money. Their subsistence is reciprocated by providing society with various forms of religious service, moral education, and preservation of culture. Legal restrictions. Begging has been restricted or prohibited at various times and for various reasons, typically revolving around a desire to preserve public order or to induce people to work rather than to beg. Various European Poor Laws prohibited or regulated begging from the Renaissance to modern times, with varying levels of effectiveness and enforcement. Similar laws were adopted by many developing countries. "Aggressive panhandling" has been specifically prohibited by law in various jurisdictions in the United States and Canada, typically defined as persistent or intimidating begging. United States. In parts of San Francisco, California, aggressive panhandling is prohibited. In May 2010, police in the city of Boston started cracking down on panhandling in the streets downtown and were conducting an educational outreach to residents advising them not to give to panhandlers. The Boston police distinguished active solicitation, or aggressive panhandling, versus passive panhandling of which an example is opening doors at a store with a cup in hand but saying nothing. U. S. Courts have repeatedly ruled that begging is protected by the First Amendment's free speech provisions. On August 14, 2013, the U S Court of Appeals struck down a Grand Rapids, Michigan anti-begging law on free speech grounds. An Arcata, California law banning panhandling within twenty feet of stores was struck down on similar grounds in 2012. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/law-school/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/law-school/support

Louis Avallone and Stephen Parr strongly believe in the importance of top officials leading with conviction and sound leadership principles. However, they cannot define “leadership” as including any element of “fear”. Unfortunately, the new CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky, MD, MPH has already stated her “leadership” of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be heavily wrapped with her own personal fears, many of which are now clearly outdated fears. She believes it is her job to control the American People, and she plans to do it by scaring the daylights out of us. That is not good, and it is not leadership.The Democrats in Washington, DC are very worried about the pending doom on the horizon regarding COVID. Considering the success of the Nation starting to reach herd immunity with the vaccines, Louis Avallone is wondering if this is to try to force all the States to hold 100% mail-in ballot elections in 2022. Stephen Parr explains that the CDC (Center for Disease Control) is really shifting into being the CPC (Center for People Control).A recent news reports show the Seattle City Parks and areas surrounding school playgrounds are now unusable by the local residents. They have now been taken over by the homeless, with their tents set up in the baseball dugouts and around the monkey bars.

Our American Mamas, Teri Netterville and Denise Arthur, point out that essentially all of these cities are Democrat run. Even so, the Democrats are treating illegals better than they are their own homeless and definitely better than their working residents who are paying the taxes!Even though Biden made a big deal out of declaring Kamala as being in charge of the border, her press secretary has announced that Kamala Harris “is not doing the border.” At no point in her career has she ever indicated she cared about the problems at our Southern Border, and it seems nothing has changed.Texas Democrat Congressman Henry Cuellar represents a TX-28, which goes from McAllen northwest well past Larado along the Rio Grande River.

On September 18, 2020, Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away at age 87 after serving as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court for over 27 years. The U.S. Supreme Court’s second female judge, Justice Ginsburg—or the Notorious RBG, as she was fondly called—left her mark as a women’s rights activist and a legal icon, including a robust footprint in the intellectual property (IP) field. This two-part series, airing on March 30 and April 13, presents three distinguished guests who offer a rare “behind the scenes” look at Justice Ginsburg. In a wide-ranging and candid discussion, they shed light on the many ways Justice Ginsburg shaped U.S. IP law through her opinions and share anecdotes about the Justice’s life. Our guests are themselves IP trailblazers.  Professor Jane Ginsburg is a renowned authority on IP law, a staunch defender of authors’ rights, and Justice Ginsburg’s daughter. She is Professor of Literary and Artistic Property Law at Columbia Law School and directs Columbia’s Kernochan Center for Law, Media and the Arts.Our second guest, Professor Mary Hartnett has been at Georgetown University Law Center since 1998, first as executive director of the Woman's Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program and now as an adjunct professor of law. In 2016, Justice Ginsburg wrote the bestselling book “My Own Words” with Professor Harnett and Professor Wendy Williams.Our third guest is Judge Margaret McKeown of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, where she has authored essential IP decisions since her confirmation in 1998.  She has lectured throughout the world on IP, anti-trust, constitutional law, ethics, international law, human rights law, and litigation. Brand & New is a production of the International Trademark AssociationHosted by Audrey Dauvet - Contribution of Mathilde Halle & Sophie Lagedamond - Music by JD BeatsFOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT INTA.ORGTo go further:About Prof. Jane C.

While vacationing on Martha's Vineyard, 23-year-old Myra Mossman had a number of foreboding premonitions before she was violently attacked by a total stranger and left for dead. Within an hour of her death experience, Myra was given five divine directives: move to the other side of the continent; learn to meditate; become skilled at a martial art; study meaningful coincidence; and learn about metaphysics. The sixth divine directive came ten years later when she was called to become a lawyer. For the past forty years, Myra has spent her time mastering those directives. In June 2019, she published her memoir, My Random Death, which reveals what she never told law enforcement on that fateful day. The transformational event on this seemingly idyllic island has made Myra a strong survivor; she turned something that was merciless into good. The directives she received after her death experience took priority in her life. She pays attention to her intuition, which played a vital part in the development of her life path. Myra Mossman has law degrees from Canada and the United States. She is a federal criminal appeals attorney (on sabbatical while writing, publishing, and now marketing her book) who has handled complex cases before the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and appeared before the US Supreme Court. She is also an archival hand bookbinder and paper restorer, a martial artist, and a reader and teacher of the tarot and Kabbalah. Myra lives in Santa Barbara, California.

Now that ban at least blocking it entirely from the App Store and blocking the users was stayed by another appeals court judge or a district court judge in September 27th. However, absent some kind of result from this appeal the TikTok app will be blocked. President Trump empowered the Justice Department to enforce that order a couple of weeks ago and TikTok, which has over a hundred million US users could soon be blocked. They have yet to finalize and close a deal with Walmart and Oracle that are in talks with TikTok to shift the US assets into a new entity that is aimed at satisfying President Trump's divestiture order.

Dec 11, 2020: GOP Attacks Mail Voting

Welcome to Majority.FM's AM QUICKIE! Brought to you by justcoffee.coop TODAY'S HEADLINES: Republicans are trying to suppress the vote in future elections by attacking mail-in balloting at the state level. They blame it in part for Donald Trump’s loss in November, but they also think anything that makes it easier for people to vote is a threat to their power. Meanwhile, there is a growing fissure in the Black Lives Matter movement. At least ten local chapters have taken aim at national organizers over, among other things, money. And lastly, in a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court took the side of Muslims targeted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Three Muslim men were targeted with reprisals after refusing to work as informants, so they sued – and won. THESE ARE THE STORIES YOU NEED TO KNOW: Sore losers that they are, Republicans are attempting to undermine the future use of vote-by-mail, the New York Times reports. Absentee ballots constituted nearly half the votes cast in the 2020 election. Experts call the experiment in mass voting by mail a remarkable success. But that hasn’t stopped Republicans eager to appease Donald Trump, who falsely and cravenly equated mail-in ballots with voter fraud. This week in Georgia, the Times reports, Republican state senators pledged to eliminate no- excuse absentee voting, require a photo ID to obtain a ballot, and outlaw drop boxes. They also want to scrap a court agreement to quickly tell voters about signature problems on ballots so that they can be fixed. Separately, the GOP filed a lawsuit in Atlanta seeking to curtail the use of drop boxes in next month’s runoff elections for the United States Senate. The suit claimed it was illegal to let absentee voters deposit ballots after business hours, which has to be one of the stupidest legal arguments ever committed to paper. And Georgia has company, the Times reports. In Pennsylvania, Republicans are seeking co- sponsors for bills to stiffen identification requirements for mail ballots, tighten standards for signature matching and to repeal the law that allows anyone to vote absentee without an excuse. Michigan Republicans want to review a 2018 ballot initiative approved by two-thirds of voters that authorized no-excuse absentee balloting as well as same-day registration and straight-ticket voting. Texas Republicans have filed bills that would crimp officials’ ability to distribute absentee ballot applications and even make it a felony to offer to help a voter fill out a ballot. They really do hate democracy, don’t they? Internal Feud Threatens BLM Movement politics can get messy. Now Politico reports that the Black Lives Matter movement is buckling under the strain of its own success, with tensions rising between local chapters and national leaders over the group’s goals, direction – and money. After a summer of protests that made BLM a household name, those atop the movement are organizing a political action committee, forming corporate partnerships, adding a third organizing arm and demanding an audience with President-elect Joe Biden. The moves have triggered mutiny in the ranks, Politico reports. Ten local chapters are severing ties with the Black Lives Matter Global Network, as the national leadership is known. They are furious that Patrisse Cullors, its remaining co-founder, named herself executive director of the group and made these decisions without their input. Local BLM activists say national leaders cut them off from funding and decision-making, leaving them broke and taking the movement in a direction with which they fundamentally disagree. Sheri Dickerson, lead organizer of BLM Oklahoma City, told Politico QUOTE We're not a brand. We are a revolution ENDQUOTE. Ten chapters signed an open letter last week that laid out a half-dozen points of contention and long-standing grievances. They said there’s a lack of transparency over $13 million in donations the movement has raised and how chapters can access it. Local organizers said they saw little or no money and were forced to crowdfund to stay afloat. Some organizers say they were barely able to afford gas or housing. With so much money and energy going toward this movement in the past year, it seems wrong for local organizers to get left out in the cold. SCOTUS Ruling Favors Muslims It’s not every day that Christian activists rally for the civil liberties of Muslims targeted by the US government. But yesterday the Supreme Court – minus new Justice Amy Coney Barrett – ruled unanimously that three Muslim men may seek monetary damages from individual government agents, the Washington Post reports. The agents reportedly placed the men on a no-fly list because they refused to become FBI informants. In response, the men filed a lawsuit in 2013 under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which provides relief from government actions that substantially burden a person’s religious beliefs. Muhammad Tanvir and two other men alleged that they were asked to spy on their friends and fellow congregants at mosques in the New York area, the Post reports. They refused, and later discovered that they were placed on the no-fly list. As a result, Tanvir lost the ability to fly home after trips he made as a long-haul trucker. He also lost money on plane tickets he had purchased to see relatives in Pakistan. Throughout the years, he said, agents told him they could get him off the list if he became an informant. Tanvir and the others sued instead. As their lawsuit progressed toward a hearing, the men were told that they were no longer on the list, according to the Post. A federal judge said that made their case moot. But a panel of the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit disagreed, saying the men could bring their claims for damages. The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty filed an amicus brief in the case, and said the ruling was important because government officials often try to get rid of lawsuits by simply stopping the alleged illegal behavior. Senior counsel Lori Windham said QUOTE the government can’t expect to be let off the hook by simply changing its tune at the last second ENDQUOTE. It’s like many of us learned on the playground: No takebacks! AND NOW FOR SOME QUICKER QUICKIES: Joe Biden will nominate Denis McDonough, a former chief of staff to President Barack Obama, to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Washington Post reports. Biden has also picked Susan Rice, Obama’s former national security adviser, to run the White House Domestic Policy Council. The more things change, huh? British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said yesterday there was a strong possibility Britain and the European Union would fail to strike a new trade deal, Reuters reports. That would mean Britain would see trade barriers imposed with the EU, its main economic partner, in just three weeks. Another broken promise from the Brexit boosters – blimey! The Justice Department is investigating the finances of Biden’s son, Hunter, including scrutinizing some of his Chinese business dealings, the Associated Press reports. There is no indication that the investigation has anything to do with Joe, but whoever he appoints as Attorney General will take over the case, assuming it’s still going on then. The longest-serving nonviolent cannabis prisoner was released this week with help from activists, the AP reports. New Yorker Richard DeLisi, now seventy one, was sentenced to ninety years for marijuana trafficking in 1989 at the age of forty. Welcome back, dude!

Who is Judge Amy Coney Barrett and what’s next for her confirmation battle? Amy Howe answers these questions and more on this week’s episode of SCOTUStalk. Amy sits down with SCOTUSblog media editor Katie Barlow to discuss the significance of President Donald Trump’s third nomination to the court, what the truncated confirmation timeline will be like, and what hot-button issues she would face as the court’s newest justice. The full transcript is below. [00:00:00] Oyez! Oyez! Oyez! Amy Howe: [00:00:03] This is SCOTUStalk, a nonpartisan podcast about the Supreme Court for lawyers and non-lawyers alike, brought to you by SCOTUSblog.AH: [00:00:13] On Saturday, President Donald Trump announced that he was nominating Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy created by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. What does Barrett's nomination mean for the Supreme Court, which is scheduled to begin its new term on Monday, October 5th? Joining me to suss this out is Katie Barlow, SCOTUSblog's media editor. Katie, thanks for joining me. Let's go ahead and dive in.Katie Barlow: [00:00:37] Now that we know who President Trump's nominee is, then we can start to dig into her background and some of the opinions that she's written. It's easy to get into the weeds, but let's zoom out to ten thousand feet for a second and just talk about what is the significance of this nomination and what could it mean?AH: [00:00:58] So if Amy Coney Barrett turns out to be a justice in the mold of Justice Antonin Scalia, for whom she clerked and whose jurisprudence she says she emulates, it really could be a seismic shift on the court. Many of the Supreme Court's recent decisions on the sort of hot button social issues of the day have been five, four decisions. And many of the decisions in which the justices have reached what many would consider to be a liberal result have been because the either the chief justice or before him, Justice Anthony Kennedy, joined the court's four more liberal justices. And now that group of four more liberal justices is down would be down to three, because Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away last week, was one of the most reliably liberal justices on the court. And so, you'd have three liberal justices and a really solid majority of six conservative justices.[00:02:01] And so it wouldn't really so much matter anymore if one of the conservative justices peeled off to vote for with the liberal justices because there would still be a very solid majority of five conservative justices. And so this could affect all kinds of issues like abortion, affirmative action, gun rights, you name it.KB: [00:02:21] All right. So, having taken that wider lens view, now let's zoom back in. And who is Amy Coney Barrett? What do we know about her? Who is she?[00:02:32] So we know quite a lot. She is a forty-eight-year-old judge on the US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, which is based in Chicago. She grew up in Louisiana, went to law school at Notre Dame, where she was a top student before coming to Washington, first a clerk on the D.C. Circuit and then to clerk on the Supreme Court for Justice Scalia. She stayed in Washington for a couple of years to practice law, starting at a law firm called Miller Cassidy, which was a boutique law firm and really was one of the hardest jobs to get in Washington as a young law student at the time. So ,she stayed there for a couple of years and then she went back to Notre Dame to teach as a law professor there for 15 years before becoming a federal judge in 2017. While she was at Notre Dame, she won teaching awards. She had very broad support from the faculty and her students when she was nominated by President Trump to serve on the Court of Appeals in 2017.KB: [00:03:30] We heard at the nomination ceremony yesterday how excited the conservatives were.[00:03:35] I mean, there was an uproar of applause. Why are they so excited about her nomination?AH: [00:03:41] So she has said that she is in terms of her judicial philosophy and originalist and textualist. And so an originalist is someone who interprets the Constitution according to what the words meant to the people who drafted them when it was drafted back in the 1780s. And a textualist. When you're interpreting the law, you look at the words on the page. You don't go looking at what Congress might have intended to do when it passed the law. And really, almost anyone whom the president nominated probably would have said that. But, Amy Coney Barrett really became a heroine to social conservatives at her 2017 confirmation hearing. There were a lot of questions about the extent to which her Catholic faith might influence her judging. And there was a famous moment in which Senator Dianne Feinstein of California said to her, “The dogma lives loudly within you.” And it really sort of went viral, I think, among social conservatives. There were mugs and T-shirts printed with that. It probably had the opposite effect from what Feinstein had intended. And so I think that the social conservatives, conservatives believe that she's going to be like her old boss, Justice Scalia, on important social issues. She signed a statement of protest while she was at Notre Dame criticizing the accommodations that the Obama administration had created for religious employers, for example, who would have otherwise needed to comply with the Affordable Care Act's birth control mandate. Religious employers had argued that even the workaround that the Obama administration had created still violated their religious rights by making them complicit in providing birth control to their female employees. And the president had promised while he was running for president back in twenty sixteen that he was going to appoint judges who would vote to overturn Roe versus Wade. And they probably believe she's likely to vote to do that in her votes in a couple of cases on the bench while she's been on the 7th Circuit, or at least suggest they were.[00:05:46] There's a little bit of nuance in the sense that these were votes on whether or not the full 7th Circuit should rehear cases in which a three-judge panel had struck down Indiana laws regulating abortion. But those votes suggest that she supported those laws in Indiana regulating abortion.KB: [00:06:06] So you mentioned her abortion related decisions, not written opinions, but her votes in cases to rehear en banc. And it's interesting because she spent three years on the 7th Circuit before her nomination, whereas her fellow Trump appointee colleagues, if she gets confirmed, Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh spent nearly 10 years each in their respective federal judgeships on the 10th Circuit and the D.C. Circuit.[00:06:34] And in fact, hot button issues like abortion didn't come up for Justice Gorsuch, who was able to avoid those types of decisions in his nearly decade on the 10th Circuit. And she's going to have more than just abortion come up. She's written opinions already on things like gun rights and immigration and sexual assault on college campuses. So, what do you think is going to come up based on the opinions that you've looked at already? You've written about them. SCOTUSblog has started to delve into them. In fact, we have all nearly one hundred of her opinions on our website if anybody wants to look at them. But what do you think is going to be top priority out of her opinions in the Judiciary Committee hearing?AH: [00:07:16] So, yes, I think it's a great point about Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. We were left to sort of pass his book about euthanasia, which arose out of his Ph.D. dissertation to try and figure out what that might mean for his views on abortion, because I don't think it had come up at all while he was on the bench.[00:07:39] I think certainly the Affordable Care Act is something that is going to be top of mind for Democrats at the confirmation hearing. She was quite critical of the chief justice's vote, his decision to uphold the individual mandate.[00:07:54] She really was very skeptical about it. And the Affordable Care Act and the individual mandate are going to be back at the Supreme Court on November 10th. And I think we may talk a little bit more about the timeline, but it's certainly something that she could very well be on the bench to hear oral argument in. And so that is something I think that they're likely to address. I think abortion is certainly going to be something that they're going to address. Gun rights in 2019, she dissented from a ruling in which the majority on a three-judge panel rejected the argument that a federal law, state law that barred people who've been convicted of felonies from having guns violates the Second Amendment right to bear arms. She dissented. She said, you really have to look at this on a case-by-case basis. This guy had been convicted of mail fraud and at the time of the country's founding, legislatures looked at whether or not someone was likely to be dangerous before they took away his gun rights. And the implication was this guy is not dangerous. And she said the Second Amendment confers an individual right. I think everyone believes that if she were confirmed, which seems at this point likely that she's likely to take a broader reading of the Second Amendment. I think, as you mentioned, there's a case in which she wrote for a three-judge panel that reinstated a lawsuit brought against Purdue University by a student who had been found guilty of sexual assault through the university's student discipline program.[00:09:27] One expert on university compliance with the federal laws barring gender discrimination in education said that this opinion was a trendsetter. He called it that would make it easier for students to bring these kinds of lawsuits against universities to trial.KB: [00:09:43] All of those things are obviously reflective of what is concerning liberals at the moment. Democrats circulated a memo already outlining 19 potential delay tactics for this nomination. But is it more than just those opinions? What is so concerning to the left right now?AH: [00:10:03] I think there is I think there's a couple of things going on, I mean, I think there there is this sense that she will be like her old boss, Justice Scalia, and could well be once she's on the bench, kind of a thought leader, in the same way that Justice Scalia was. I mean, I think there's also the element, the liberals, both because of what's at stake generally and then because of the process, the idea that back in 2016 Republicans refused to fill the vacancy when President Obama was nearing the end of his second term, but are now filling a vacancy when President Trump's is up for reelection and election is looming so large, that this is just wrong. I think they certainly would have opposed whoever the president would have nominated. It's almost unimaginable that he would nominate someone who would be acceptable both to his base and to Democrats. I think Barack Obama tried that. It didn't go so well. And now she does have, unlike some of the other judges who were reportedly in the mix as potential nominees, this long paper trail on issues that they can point to.KB: [00:11:23] So we kind of got our first national public glimpse of her beyond her, her judiciary hearing for the 7th Circuit, which was interesting, but I'm not sure the entire nation was watching in the same way as they were watching the ceremony in the Rose Garden when President Trump nominated her, and she spoke after he gave his speech, officially nominating her. Talk a little bit about what she said when she spoke in the Rose Garden. What did she say to us and to the country?AH: [00:11:51] It was only eight minutes. We'll see a lot more of her. At the confirmation hearing. She said some of the things you'd expect. You know, that she was deeply honored. She was truly humbled. She paid tribute to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She observed that this was all happening very quickly, that the flags were still flying at half-staff. She talked about her family. She's the mother of seven children and her husband. And she really tried to address some of the divisions in the country, particularly when it came to her nomination. She talked about Justice Ginsburg as a pioneer, but she also talked about Justice Ginsburg's friendship with Justice Scalia. And she said they disagreed fiercely in print, but they always got along in person. And, you know, maybe she seemed to me to be alluding to the controversy over her Catholic faith and what role that might play in her judging. And she said the Supreme Court belongs to all of us and she pledged to be impartial.KB: [00:12:47] It's been a bit of a long road to get to her nomination. She had been circulating in conversations about potential nominees. She was in the conversation for when Justice Kavanaugh was nominated.[00:13:03] Can you talk a little bit about the road to this nomination, the short list, the multiple short lists, including one we got not so very long ago, and other finalists that were considered.AH: [00:13:15] So the president back in twenty sixteen when he was running for president, released a list of potential nominees. And he said, if I'm elected and there's a vacancy, I will draw from this list. The list was a big success, really, I think sort of upped his credibility with conservatives and particularly with religious conservatives who been somewhat skeptical about him, whether he was really one of them, so to speak. Remember, there are videos circulating like a clip of him on Meet the Press with the late Tim Russert saying, you know, “I'm very pro-choice.” And so I think this helped to reassure them before the election that if he were elected, he would pick a conservative, because at that point there was the opening created by the death of Justice Scalia. And then he added to the list. Again Justice Kavanaugh was added to the list later on so that he was on the list of potential nominees by the time Justice Anthony Kennedy retired in 2018. And then just recently, President Trump released a new list of potential nominees that was added to the old list. And among the people on that list was a judge in Florida named Barbara Lagoa, who's on the US Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit and a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, Alison Jones Rushing, who's quite young, she's only 38 years old and has been on the bench for about a year and a half. And Justice Ginsburg passed away on Friday, and the president made his announcement the following Saturday. But after Justice Kennedy's retirement, as you as you mentioned, Judge Barrett was by all accounts, on the short list for that vacancy. And there was reporting by Axios after the vacancy was filled by now Justice Brett Kavanaugh, that Trump had told his advisers that he was saving a Amy Coney Barrett in case Justice Ginsburg were to leave the court during his presidency.[00:15:18] And so it all moved very quickly after Justice Ginsburg passed away, eight days before the nomination was made. But you had the sense, I don't know that anyone knew inside the White House or even outside her close circle of friends sort of how she was doing. But there had been reports about her health problems. And I imagine that inside the White House, they were prepared to be ready, at least for a vacancy on the Supreme Court. There hasn't been any reporting yet, but it's not clear whether or not anyone else was ever seriously in the mix besides Amy Coney Barrett. Judge Lagoa, there was there was a lot of political upside to nominating her. She was the first Hispanic woman and the first Cuban-American woman on the Florida Supreme Court. Obviously, there's an upcoming election. Florida's got a lot of electoral votes and she's very well regarded in conservative circles but doesn't necessarily have the conservative track record that Amy Coney Barrett has yet. Jeremy Diamond of CNN reported that at a fundraiser in Florida just in the last couple of days, that the president told Florida leaders that if he's re-elected, and there's another vacancy, that judge Lagoa would definitely be in the mix. Alison Jones Rushing, as I mentioned, is only 38. She's only been on the court of appeals for about a year and a half. And so, although I don't think anyone would question her academic credentials to be on the court, she may just not be quite seasoned enough as a judge to be on the Supreme Court yet.KB: [00:17:00] So now that she has been thrown into the fire, so to speak, both she and the Senate Judiciary Committee have to work quickly.[00:17:10] We're expecting hearings to begin the week of October 12th, which is in two weeks. And typically, that process takes about six weeks from nomination to hearing.[00:17:19] So talk a little bit about what happens next, how quickly that's going to happen, what the timeline is going to look like. Clearly, multiple things are going to be happening at once.AH: [00:17:27] Sure. I mean, you know, there's no requirement, obviously, that they work quickly. Obviously, it sounds like the president wants to get her on the Supreme Court before the election for a variety of reasons. And having done that, then they would have to work quickly because there were 38 days from Saturday when the president made the nomination until Election Day. So the hearings are scheduled for October 12th. Senator Lindsey Graham has said that they would like to have Judge Barrett's nomination clear the committee, the Senate Judiciary Committee, by October 26th to set up a vote before the election. So it is certainly much faster than most Supreme Court nominations move. I've seen reporting that some Democratic senators have said that they don't intend to meet with Judge Barrett. Normally, a nominee will come to Washington if they're not already there and do a round of courtesy visits with different senators to sort of get to know them a little bit, talk a little bit about judging in advance of the Senate Judiciary Committee. So that will save Judge Barrett a little bit of time, I guess, if she's not meeting with all of the senators.KB: [00:18:36] Right. A lot of people got the short end of the stick here, but I mostly feel sorry for everyone in the Supreme Court press corps because they had last term go over and had to go into the summer. It's been an incredibly busy summer with election litigation and other things. And now not only is the term starting in a week with some major cases, but you guys will have a simultaneous coverage of a nomination confirmation, not just a normal one, one that's happening extremely quickly at the same time.AH: [00:19:05] I don't feel sorry for the people that feel sorry for the people in the Supreme Court's public information office. They are the ones working overtime.KB: [00:19:13] Right. I feel sorry for them, too. There's a lot ahead. What are your thoughts? Can she can she be confirmed before the election?AH: [00:19:20] I mean, it sounds like they intend to do it. It would be much faster than most confirmations. As I said, it was 38 days between Saturday when the president nominated Judge Barrett and Election Day. Justice Ginsburg's confirmation process was relatively quick. Hers was 50 days. Justice Gorsuch, nd this was a situation in which Justice Scalia's seat had been vacant for quite a while. So I think there was a little bit of a pressure to fill it. His was 66 days. The average has been around 70 days. I mean, there's nothing magic about the election, even if, as the president has suggested, he wants to have someone on the Supreme Court to deal with any election related litigation. That election related litigation is not going to magically arrive at the Supreme Court on November 4th. It would take a while to bubble up through the lower courts and arrive at the Supreme Court, but they've obviously made a decision that they would like to try and do it. And I think it's one of those things where you have to borrow an old cliché, if there's a will, there's a way. KB: And there's certainly there's certainly a will, so it seems. So you mentioned potential election litigation. But putting that aside, what are the cases coming up which her nomination and confirmation could make a difference? What's on the docket already, short term and longer term.AH: [00:20:44] So in the short term, this and this could be a reason why they want to have her on the bench, certainly, putting aside the election related litigation. On November 4th, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a case called Fulton vs. City of Philadelphia. And this is about the balance between religious beliefs and anti-discrimination laws and in particular, anti-discrimination laws that protect LGBTQ people. It's sort of a slightly different version of the Masterpiece Cake Shop case that the Supreme Court heard a couple of years ago. That was the case of the Colorado baker who did not want to make a cake for a same sex wedding celebration. This is a lawsuit brought against the City of Philadelphia by Catholic Social Services. Catholic Social Services has a policy of not working with foster care parents who are same sex couples because of the agency's religious beliefs. And as a result, the City of Philadelphia has a policy of not working with Catholic Social Services. And Catholic Social Services says that violates its religious beliefs. The Supreme Court had a hard time with the Masterpiece Cake Shop case back in 2018 while Justice Kennedy was still on the bench. They sort of dealt with it very narrowly. They ruled in favor of the baker, but on the ground that the Colorado administrative agency that had ruled against him had been unfair to him because of his religious beliefs. They didn't issue some sort of broader constitutional pronouncement. So it's not clear whether the Supreme Court will do that this time.[00:22:20] But there may be more likely to be five votes for some sort of broader constitutional rule with a Justice Barrett on the bench. And then the big one on November 10th is the battle over the Affordable Care Act. Whether or not the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate, the requirement that all Americans buy health insurance or pay a penalty is constitutional now that Congress has taken away, in essence, the penalty for failing to get health insurance. And so there's a couple of different questions in that case. Back in 2012, Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court's former liberal justices in saying that the mandate was constitutional because it's a tax. But even if there were no longer five votes for the proposition that it is still constitutional, there's a separate question. And then what happens? Is it just that the mandate is no longer a part of the Affordable Care Act? Or does some or all of the Affordable Care Act go with it? And then looking further down the road, it seems very likely that the Supreme Court is going to have to deal with issues relating to abortion. Affirmative action, acouple of weeks ago, the US Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit heard oral argument in the challenge to Harvard's admissions policies. The argument is that Harvard is discriminating against Asian-Americans in its admissions policies. Back in 2016, Justice Anthony Kennedy joined the court's three liberal justices because Justice Kagan was recused. So the vote was four to three to uphold the University of Texas’ admissions policy.[00:24:00] But that was then. This is now. There's been quite a change in the composition of the court. And then gun rights. In 2019, in December, the Supreme Court heard a challenge to a New York City rule that banned people who live in New York City and have a license to have a gun from taking their guns outside of New York City. But then they dismissed that case as moot. There is no longer a live controversy, just as Brett Kavanaugh suggested that perhaps the court should take up another case to say more about how broadly the Second Amendment applies, because the Supreme Court has said there is a Second Amendment right to have a gun in your home for self-defense, but really hasn't said much more than that in about 10 years. But the Supreme Court didn't do that. They had an opportunity to do that with a whole group of cases right after the New York case. And the conventional wisdom, for what it's worth, is that there would be four conservative votes on the Supreme Court to take up a Second Amendment case, but that they hadn't done so because they're not sure about what Chief Justice John Roberts would do in such a case. And so to sort of take this and project, if Justice Amy Coney Barrett were on the bench, there may well be five votes to take up a Second Amendment case and say more about what the Second Amendment protects.KB: [00:25:26] All right. Well, it sounds like there's a lot in the long-term future, but for now, we have the nomination and confirmation process to focus on.[00:25:34] And as always, Amy, thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.[00:25:38] We always learn something. We're grateful.AH: [00:25:40] Thank you. We'll be back to talk about it soon.

In this latest issue of my weekly podcast, we discuss the new Supreme Court vacancy. Trump wants to fill the position with a woman who has a pro-life background like federal appeals judge Amy Coney Barrett (circuit judge for US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit) or Barbara Lagoa (11th Circuit judge US Court of Appeals). Trump has no choice but to try and fill the position; it's a big motivator of evangelical support. And Democrats have no choice but to oppose adamantly. The open seat could significantly impact a close election and may help Trump in legal battles over a close election result.Economic indicators remained mixed. The Philadelphia Fed Manu Index dropped to 15 for September. That is its lowest reading since May. The Michigan Consumer Sentiment preliminary reading jumped to 78.9 for September. That is its highest reading since March. And the Chicago National Activity Index dropped to 0.79 for August. This reading is more in line with the index's average of around zero. Poland's ruling coalition collapses. The Law and Justice Party told its smaller party allies to "pack their bags." A few weeks back, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of Law and Justice, proposed an animal rights bill that was opposed by the other parties of his government. Kaczynski did not take the insubordination well and has announced Law and Justice will try to govern as a minority party. If this does not work, new elections will be triggered. Brexit heats up. Back in January, the UK and the EU agreed on the Northern Ireland Protocol. It would allow the soft border between Ireland and Northern Ireland to remain with no checkpoints. In return, Northern Ireland would have to follow EU custom laws and check any goods coming from the rest of the UK. But BoJo has now introduced a bill in parliament that would give him the authority to scrap the agreement altogether. Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi have both threatened that if a hard border is reinstated the US will not sign a trade deal with the UK. Protests expand in Thailand. On Saturday, 20k-50k people filled the streets of Bangkok to protest against the government and the King. This was the largest demonstration yet. Protestors have called for a countrywide strike on October 14 and an immediate boycott of the Siam Commercial Bank, in which the King holds a 24% stake.In the UK and the US, the number of older women without children will skyrocket in the next 20 years. Since adult children are the group most likely to provide informal care to adults age 80 and over, this sets the stage for a huge increase in demand for paid care that will be difficult to meet. **********The content featured here is a small part of Hedgeye’s Demography Unplugged, a game-changing market intelligence product brought to you by historian, demographer and best-selling author Neil Howe.

Georgia House of Representatives Earl L. “Buddy” Carter joins CEO of RxSafe Bill Holmes to summarize the The Supreme Court of The United States (SCOTUS) has rescheduled the Rutledge v. The Pharmaceutical Care Management Association (PCMA) hearing for October 6, 2020.1 The initial April hearing date had been postponed due to the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic (COVID-19) Rutledge v. PCMA revolves around whether states have the right to regulate pharmacy benefit managers (PBMS). Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has petitioned the court to overturn the US Court of Appeals for the Eight District’s earlier decision to maintain Arkansas’ statute regulating PBMs’ drug reimbursement rates. In a legal brief filed in February 2020, however, Rutledge argues the statute is preempted by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974.3 At least 4 pharmacy groups, The American Pharmacists Association, The Arkansas Pharmacist Association, The National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations, and the National Community Pharmacists Association have publicly expressed their support for states’ rights to regulate PBMs.3 According to an earlier report, these 4 groups have jointly argued that unregulated PBM business practices limits access to pharmacists care and prevents the optimal use of medications.3 In April 2020, the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) filed an amicus brief in support of the Eighth District’s decision.4 The brief argues that ruling in favor of Rutledge will drive up health care costs, and also will have a big effect on patients too by limiting their ability to access affordable medications, hindering health outcomes.4 The AMCP brief also argues that ruling in favor of Rutledge can lead to issues at the administrative level, and can lead to varying and possibly contradictory state laws as well.4 Supreme Court to hear Rutledge v.

While vacationing on Martha's Vineyard, 23-year-old Myra Mossman had a number of foreboding premonitions before she was violently attacked by a total stranger and left for dead. Within an hour of her death experience, Myra was given five divine directives: move to the other side of the continent; learn to meditate; become skilled at a martial art; study meaningful coincidence; and learn about metaphysics. The sixth divine directive came ten years later when she was called to become a lawyer. For the past forty years, Myra has spent her time mastering those directives. In June 2019, she published her memoir, My Random Death, which reveals what she never told law enforcement on that fateful day. The transformational event on this seemingly idyllic island has made Myra a strong survivor; she turned something that was merciless into good. The directives she received after her death experience took priority in her life. She pays attention to her intuition, which played a vital part in the development of her life path. Myra Mossman has law degrees from Canada and the United States. She is a federal criminal appeals attorney (on sabbatical while writing, publishing, and now marketing her book) who has handled complex cases before the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and appeared before the US Supreme Court. She is also an archival hand bookbinder and paper restorer, a martial artist, and a reader and teacher of the tarot and Kabbalah. Myra lives in Santa Barbara, California.
