    Josh Hammer on 'common good originalism,' judicial supremacy, and human rights across the globe

    Josh Hammer on 'common good originalism,' judicial supremacy, and human rights across the globe

    “I urge you, then—as Hamilton would have urged you—to keep in mind that the federal government is not bad but good," Antonin Scalia, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice, once said. "The trick is to use it wisely,” How can our politics and the broader public policy process be oriented to serve the common good and recapture Justice Scalia call to action? Josh Hammer, Opinion Editor at Newsweek, Of Counsel at First Liberty Institute, and syndicated columnist, joins us today to get us to the heart of that challenge. Tom Shakely and Noah Brandt speak with Josh on the role of the judiciary in our politics, how to preserve human rights across the globe, and how to strive for a society in which all feel a part.

    Terrisa Bukovinac, Herb Geraghty, and Krista Corbello on Rehumanize International, the consistent life ethic, and beauty

    Terrisa Bukovinac, Herb Geraghty, and Krista Corbello on Rehumanize International, the consistent life ethic, and beauty

    Americans agree overwhelmingly on any number of critical issues—until the pollsters get involved, phrasing their questions in ways they know will confuse, mislead, and divide, and lead the politicians looking to those polls to embrace positions that alienate rather than bring Americans together. It's an under-appreciated truth of our national life that Americans of all ages, backgrounds, and beliefs affirm the human right to life, for instance. Terrisa Bukovinak of Pro-Life San Francisco returns to Life, Liberty, and Law and is joined by Herb Geraghty and Krista Corbello of Rehumanize International, whose mission is to ensure that each and every human being's life is respected, valued, and protected. Rehumanize adheres to an ethos called the Consistent Life Ethic, which calls for an opposition to all forms of aggressive violence against human beings. Tom Shakely speaks with Terrisa, Herb, and Krista on these issues and more.

Each episode is informative and inspiring with incredible interviews. The July 13th episode, though, was exceptional. I was moved to tears several times throughout, and I am beyond grateful for the perspectives each participant of the podcast episode brought to the discussion. This podcast is an absolute gift.
