    Amicus: SCOTUS Doesn’t Have To Be This Way

    Amicus: SCOTUS Doesn’t Have To Be This Way

    So President Biden finally signaled an openness to maybe possibly thinking about Supreme Court reform. Too little, too late, perhaps - but also, desperately needed, certainly. The US Supreme Court views itself as separate and apart from all other courts - including international counterparts. What could Americans learn from other courts? One of the world’s most respected jurists, retired Canadian Supreme Court Justice Rosalie Silberman Abella, joins Dahlia Lithwick on this week’s Amicus for a very special conversation about the role of constitutional courts in democracy, and where SCOTUS may be veering off track.

Blue star mother, 20 year DOD & VA nurse practitioner

Just heard your guest expressing his view about being thanked for his service- he is entitled to his view, but I can tell you his opinion is not the only one, although others do share it. Many, many vets are gratified by the affection. & gratitude of others. I practiced psychiatry for decades, as well as being mother of a combat vet. There are times when all the positivity in a vets life comes from
Strangers. That can be a lifesaver, believe me.

Trump’s Race Card Episode

Best episode of all time! Broadcast, repeat, and play again, and again. “Since 1973, it’s who the man is.., Biden slurs his words because of his stutter, has neuropathy in one leg, Biden’s policies are good for the country, Biden is respected in the world or Trump a failed business man who got his name by putting it on other people’s businesses, a racist, a rapist, a convicted felon, a conman who tripled the deficit, and
failed his first term as President and lastly, Trump embraces dictators and their policies, whose MAGA party 2025 playbook will create an imperial democracy in the USA, where he is king… the question is who do you actually want as President”. VOTE
