3328 – Trump Immunity, Abortion Rights Assault, NLRB Attack

It’s News Day Tuesday! Sam and Emma speak with Peter Shamshiri, or Law Boy on Twitter, co-host of If Books Could Kill & the 5-4 Podcast, to discuss the recent oral argumentsat the Supreme Court. First, Sam and Emma run through updates on Israel’s pre-October 7th war crimes, student anti-war encampments on campuses across the US, Trump’s legal woes and presidential hopes, gender-affirming care in Virginia, RFK’s ballot access, and New York’s Congressional special election, before parsing deeper into Israel’s continuing ethnic cleansing of Gaza, with an invasion of Rafah imminent amid falling bombs, and look into the lies behind Israel’s supposed hostage “negotiations.” Peter Shamshiri then joins, first looking to Grants Pass v. Johnson, the SCOTUS case tackling an Oregon municipality’s criminalization of sleeping outdoors in an attempt to initiate police crackdowns on homelessness, discussing the precedent of Martin v. Boise – requiring adequate shelter beds for the unhoused population before the criminalization of “camping” – that this case is attempting to overturn, and framing it within the context of the 8th Amendment’s prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment. After further contextualizing this case within the West Coast’s ongoing crusade against the houseless, and tackling how a Court desperate to undermine the 8th Amendment is likely to handle it, Shamshiri turns to Idaho and Moyle v. United States, and the Supreme Court’s impending decision on whether the US Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act requiring necessary care in life-threatening situations should override Idaho’s stringent abortion ban (it should). Next, Peter, Sam, and Emma parse through Starbucks v. McKinney, Starbucks’ challenge to the NLRB’s lower standards for court injunctions, allowing them to rush to prevent potential unfair labor practices while they assess the situation, and what the Supreme Court’s likely anti-labor decision will mean for the future of the NLRB, before wrapping up with a conversation on the “novel” case around Donald Trump’s presidential immunity, and what dwindling faith in the Supreme Court means for the American legal profession.

And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma discuss the unsurprising trend in violent crime along the border and the absurd refusal of the media to acknowledge its sensationalist presentation of the crime and border crisis, January 6th developments, and watch an Israeli Spokesperson fight for his life when confronted with Israel’s own bogus claims. Nancy Pelosi joins Joe Biden in doing everything she can do to get Trump reelected, Henry from Cincinnati explores the recent anti-war protests at OSU and the harrowingly regular presence of snipers on campus. A caller walks through the situation of his friend stuck in Gaza, what’s being done to organize his escape and how you can help, Josh from Chicago discusses the anti-Semitic assumption of dual loyalty (to Tottenham), the MR Crew tackles the lies about the supposed consensus around Zionism in Jewish communities, and Jerry Seinfeld finally locks in on a reactionary pivot after two decades of career decline, plus, your calls and IMs!
