Dire Consequences for Blacks, Others Groups Expected with Supreme Court Pick

Of all of President Donald Trump’s demagoguery against free speech, the press, religious rights, due process, and women’s control over their bodies, no decision carries such far-reaching and lasting consequences for women, people of color, and other groups, over generations than his Supreme Court pick of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

“This Supreme Court nomination is the most consequential to be taken up in decades. Since Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s retirement from the court, Justice (Anthony) Kennedy has been a critical swing vote on some of the most important civil rights issues to come before the court. This nomination stands to change the balance on the court for generations to come,” said Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.

On a press conference call on Tuesday, Clarke said it was time for Senate Democrats to carry out their constitutional duty of fully and properly vetting Kavanaugh’s records. Trump, throughout his campaign for president, has publicly stated that he’d like to see Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that legalized abortions nationwide, overturned. Last October, during the last presidential debate, he was asked his opinion on the issue.

“Well, if we put another two or perhaps three justices on, that’s really what’s going to be—that will happen,” Trump said at the debate. “And that’ll happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court. I will say this: It will go back to the states, and the states will then make a determination.”


So far, the president has been able to get Neil Gorsuch, a conservative, on the Supreme Court bench. With Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, whose votes helped swing decisions to the left on issues like abortion, affirmative action, and gay rights, Trump now has a pathway to select a second conservative justice onto the Supreme Court. This means civil rights cases will be some of the most monumental cases that will be brought before the Supreme Court for years to come, Clarke said.

If there is any doubt about what kind of long-lasting damage Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court bench could do to black and brown people’s civil and human rights, one need not look past Gorsuch’s record since being on the bench for only 11 weeks. The court struck down a law that treated LGBTQ couples differently on their children’s birth certificates. The court refused a challenge to the Department of Veteran Affairs’ system for evaluating disability claims. A challenge to California’s law limiting who can carry a concealed firearm in public was declined by the court. All of which Gorsuch dissented on, according to USA Today.

Kavanaugh, 53, has a dangerous track record of protecting the privileges of the wealthy and powerful at the expense of working people, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said in a statement. When asked about what his personal opinion on abortion was during his 2006 confirmation hearing for the D.C. Circuit Court, Kavanaugh declined to answer, saying: “I don’t think it would be appropriate for me to give a personal view on that case.”

On Abortion Rights: While the Appeals court in Washington allowed a detained undocumented immigrant minor to seek an abortion last fall, Kavanaugh, who dissented said the majority who voted “yes” had “badly erred” and created a new right for undocumented immigrant minors in custody to “immediate abortion on demand” according to the Washington Post.

Religion: A part of the Obamacare Act required insurers to cover contraception, but some employers objected on religious grounds. To avoid paying a fine, “employers can bypass the requirement by submitting a form to their insurers, which then cover the workers’ contraception at no expense to the employers.” Forcing employers to submit the form violated their religious liberty, Kavanaugh wrote, siding with religious organizations who contended that “even submitting the form made them complicit in providing contraception.”

Consumer Rights: Consumer advocacy groups are worried about Brett Kavanaugh, especially because of the history that he has with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) arguing that the financial regulatory entity’s mere existence was unconstitutional. In 2014, CFPB alleged that mortgage company PHH Corp. had “harmed consumers through a mortgage insurance kickback scheme that started as early as 1995.” A year later, the company was ordered to pay $ 109 million in fines. PHH sued to have the fines vacated, and Kavanaugh was on a three-judge panel that ruled in favor of the company, taking issue with CFPB’s organizational set up.

Second Amendment/Gun Rights: In a 2011 case in which the DC Circuit court “upheld a ban that applied to semiautomatic rifles in the District of Columbia” Kavanaugh, who dissented from a majority opinion wrote that the Supreme Court had previously “held that handguns—the vast majority of which today are semi-automatic—are constitutionally protected because they have not traditionally been banned and are in common use by law-abiding citizens.”

Voting Rights: When South Carolina first tried to implement its now passed Voter ID law that required voters to present government-issued photo ID in order to cast a ballot in the 2012 elections, Kavanaugh was one of three panel judges who ruled to block its enforcement. The court, however, ruled that the state may put the law in effect in the future “to allow time to educate voters about the requirement.”

“At first blush, one might have thought South Carolina had enacted a very strict photo ID law,” wrote Kavanaugh. “Much of the initial rhetoric surrounding the law suggested as much. But that rhetoric was based on a misunderstanding of how the law would work.” The law, as construed by South Carolina officials, “does not have the effects that some expected and some feared,” the judge wrote.

Rev. Al Sharpton, who was on the press call on Tuesday said Kavanaugh’s confirmation process was moving too fast. Before Kavanaugh’s records are examined, Senate Democrats need to ensure that the “McConnell Rule” which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell put in place and used to derail former president Barack Obama’s pick to the court a couple of years ago be applied at this go, he said.

“Not only are we very much concerned that we may now have a right-wing jurist given his record. We’re also concerned that the process itself is going through and no one is raising the fact that when Barrack Obama as president had nominated Garland, McConnell went ahead and very directly and openly changed the rules and they are allowing them to change the rules back,” said Sharpton. “Democrats are to stall and really wait until after the election because this is a premise that was set by McConnell and others in the last election, nomination process with Judge Garland.”

“The McConnell Rule” states that Supreme Court Justices will not be considered in an election year with McConnell saying, “the American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”

“We are calling on every Democrat to not leap with Kavanaugh. We are calling on them to bring the argument to the American people before we get to his credentials or anything else. The process itself is being politicized, which is opposite of what the court is supposed to do,” Al Sharpton said.

Since the court was established in 1789, there have been 153 nominations to the US Supreme Court, 30 of which were unsuccessful in their first try, and Clarke said Senate Democrats need to ensure Trump’s pick wait till the November elections are over.

“The Senate should not rubber-stamp the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh. It’s time for them to carry out their constitutional duty of fully and properly vetting him (Judge Kavanaugh),” she said.

Democrats Want to Fight Trump’s Supreme Court Pick. They Just Have No Power to Do It.

REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Wednesday vowed to hold a vote on Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s successor this fall, setting up a contentious political battle ahead of the critical midterm elections.

But while Democrats insisted that Kennedy’s replacement should not be considered until after voters have their say in November, many members of the party acknowledged the ominous political reality they now confront. Democrats are powerless to stop President Donald Trump from getting his second justice on the nation’s highest court.

“They hold all the cards,” said Jim Manley, a top aide to former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). “There’s not really anything left to say.”

Oprah’s Latest Book Club Pick Is a Prison Memoir Written by a Wrongfully Convicted Man

(NEW YORK) — Anthony Ray Hinton, wrongly imprisoned for nearly 30 years, can hardly believe how his luck has changed.

Hinton’s memoir, “The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row,” is Oprah Winfrey’s latest book club pick, a dream for virtually any writer and beyond the imagination for a man who was once confined to a 5-by-7-foot cell. Tuesday’s announcement comes three years after Hinton’s release from Jefferson County Jail in Birmingham, Alabama. He had been convicted for two 1985 murders in Birmingham, where he still lives.

Hinton, during a recent telephone interview with The Associated Press, called Winfrey’s endorsement “the second biggest surprise” of his life.

“The biggest surprise was being charged with a crime I didn’t commit.”

Published in March, Hinton’s book tells of his conviction for killing two fast-food restaurant workers during separate robberies, and his decades spent on death row. His efforts to overturn the conviction reached the U.S. Supreme Court, which in 2014 unanimously ruled he had been denied a fair trial. Hinton was freed after new ballistics tests contradicted the only evidence — an analysis of crime-scene bullets — that connected Hinton to the slayings. When he finally got out, the words he spoke to loved ones greeting him — “The sun does shine” — became his memoir’s title.

Hinton, 61, likened himself to Job as a man who lost everything, but eventually saw his life restored. Speaking of his time in jail, he said, “Every day was hell, every night was hell, every waking moment was hell.” But upon leaving, “The sun was shining brighter than I could ever remember it shining.”

Hinton’s legal case was taken on by the Alabama-based Equal Justice Initiative and its director, Bryan Stevenson, whose 2014 book “Just Mercy” is considered essential reading about the criminal justice system. Stevenson provided the foreword to “The Sun Does Shine,” which Hinton wrote with Lara Love Hardin. Her other credits include co-writing “The Book of Forgiving” with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu.

In a promotional video released Tuesday, Winfrey noted that most of her picks over the past 20 years have been works of fiction. But she said “The Sun Does Shine” was a worthy exception.

“This story reads like an epic novel and it is all true,” Winfrey said. “You will, throughout the book, try to imagine yourself — falsely accused, and in a 5-by-7 cell for 30 years. He is a remarkable storyteller and when you read it you’ll be swept away.”

Winfrey’s interview with Hinton will air Sunday on her OWN network. Her “O” magazine will highlight “The Sun Does Shine” in its July issue. Winfrey has turned dozens of books into best-sellers, whether older works such as John Steinbeck’s “East of Eden” or contemporary novels such as Jane Hamilton’s “A Map of the World.”

In February, Winfrey chose a novel that also focuses on a man jailed for a crime he didn’t commit, Tayari Jones’ “An American Marriage.”

How to pick your next vacation spot

ADVERTISEMENT

So you have chosen to travel. You decided that you would rather invest in an experience than a material item, so you start to save for your next trip. But where in the world should you go? It’s a tough question with so many wonderful options. Of course, the amount of time you have, as well as your budget play large parts in your final choice.  Whatever your unique situation may be, here is how to pick your next vacation destination.

You will first need to ask yourself what kind of vacation you would like. Are you a city person, a beach bum or a countryside lover? Do you want somewhere with hot or cold weather? Are you seeking relaxation or adventure? Culture, adrenaline or shopping? Who are you traveling with? Are you splurging or budgeting? Would you rather go to the popular tourist spots or go off the beaten track?  Once you have a general direction of what type of holiday you have in mind, it makes it much easier to start to explore spots.

When searching for a vacation destination, it is important to be open minded. Just because you have never heard of a certain place or can’t say it’s name properly, if you find a cheap flight then why not go for it? Just make sure it is safe before, of course. Going out of your comfort zone can allow you to have the best possible trip ever.

It is also useful to be creative as much as you can. If the flights are super expensive to your dream destination, find an alternative spot. Perhaps do not fly direct and find a bus that goes there from a cheaper airport.  You should also take the underdog into consideration and look into a country’s second city, which is usually cheaper and makes a unique option.

Once you find a place that speaks to you, be decisive, but it is so easy to think about it for weeks on end contemplating if it the right move. By waiting around too long you can miss out on a great opportunity. So once you make a choice, book it right away.  If you are feeling unsure about your travel plans, ask yourself why you want to travel? Try to understand what you are seeking to gain, whether it be to have quality time with your friends, relax, reconnect, disconnect, learn, have an adventure or work on your tan.  By understanding why you are desiring a trip it can make it much easier to chose where you should go.

Always keep in mind that the only things you will regret and those that you did not do. Remember this when you are feeling like you are not adventurous enough and need that extra push.  However do not feel as though making a safe choice is a bad one. As much as being adventurous is exciting and often necessary, doing something you know is good and a safe choice has no shame. If you enjoy yourself, then that is what’s most important.

In addition, if you find a vacation destination you are dying to go to and cannot find a partner to go with you, do not let this hold you back. Go solo and do what is good for you.  And who said that traveling has to be far away? Sometimes going close to home can make for a wonderful option and you’ll be surprised and how many hidden treasures there are right nearby.

If budget is what is holding you back, do not let it stop you from getting away. Even expensive countries have options such as hostels, and free tours that allow for a cheaper trip. It requires being more creative but that’s what traveling is all about.

Jerry O’Connell on Why He Thinks His Twin Daughters Are Jedi: ‘It’s Funny When They Pick Up on Adult Mind Games’

 

Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell might have been Jedi Masters this whole time without even realizing it.

The hilarious actor sat down with PEOPLE to talk about parenting his 8-year-old twin daughters Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip, sharing that they might just be channeling the Force.

“I love it when they pick up on adult things that I’m trying to do that I don’t explain to them,” says O’Connell, 43. “For example, if I’m washing dishes and I accidentally break something, one of my daughters will go, ‘You gonna tell Mom about that?! You gonna tell Mom?!’ ”

“And they know I’m never gonna tell their mother. just let my wife find out,” he continues. “It’s funny when they pick up on adult mind games. My kids are Jedis.”

O’Connell says he and his wife are strict about certain things, like looking people in the eye when speaking to them and saying “Please” and “Thank you.” But Romijn, 44, is a stickler for one rule that the Finding Dory voice actor is a little more laid-back about — maybe even to a fault.

“My wife is super strict about bedtimes. It’s like a prison in that house. Lights out, 8, boom, warden’s set it. I mean, that’s it. Alcatraz. Bang,” he jokes. “I’m like, ‘Girls, we’ll go to bed when you wanna go to bed. I’m gonna watch TV all night. If you wanna sit here and watch TV with me, let’s have at it.’ ”

But Dolly and Charlie’s dad is into a show that might be a little above their age range — maybe that’s O’Connell’s strategy, though.

” ‘You guys wanna learn about history and watch Game of Thrones with me? Let’s go. This is what the world used to be like, dragons and stuff,’ ” he continues. “There used to be a wall, . Life used to be crazy. You should be thankful you live in today’s world.’ ”

Even though his girls aren’t taking in too much real history by watching Game of Thrones with their dad, they are learning the importance of a dollar with their chores routine.

“My wife keeps a list, and they get a dollar for washing dishes or they get 50 cents for making their bed,” O’Connell explains.

“And they keep a list. They are hardcore, they’re like accountants, it’s like H&R Block,” he says of his girls. “They’re like , ‘Dad, you owe me $ 47.95!’ ”

“The big one is dog poop in the backyard. I think that’s the big-money one,” the Love Locks star continues. “We’re getting into $ 2 to $ 3 fees there.”

The funny dad is super proud of his girls and just wants the best for them, but he can’t help keeping the laughs going when he thinks about his biggest hope for them.

“My greatest wish for my children? At times, they’d just zip it,” he says. “I’m kidding. (Mouthing: I’m not).”

“I hope they don’t talk about this interview in therapy someday,” he laughs, adding seriously, “I guess that they do well, you know? I mean, do well in school, have a good life. I hope they have fun.”
