3368 – SCOTUS: The Decisions We Have, And What Comes Next w/ Peter Shamshiri

It’s News Day Tuesday! Sam and Emma break down the biggest headlines of the day. But first they speak with Peter Shamshiri, or Law Boy on Twitter, co-host of If Books Could Kill & the 5-4 Podcast, to discuss the recent decisions handed down by the Supreme Court, and what to expect with the decisions still yet to come. Sam and Emma run through updates on Julian Assange’s plea deal, today’s primaries, Israeli military violence, Biden’s Student Loan plan, Louisiana’s education reform, Texas’ abortion ban, Infowars, and the post-IRA US economy, also diving into George Latimer’s appearance on CNN to blame Jamaal Bowman for his wild ethnic insensitivities. Peter Shamshiri then joins, tackling what to expect from the last couple weeks of this SCOTUS term and touching on the ever-(Juris)prudent Alito-Thomas relationship. Next, Peter walks Sam and Emma through the various major decisions that have come out of the Court in recent weeks, first looking to Moore v. US’ narrow address of tax law, what it means for the future of a wealth tax, and what (if any) pathway exists to get around this conservative court’s absurd requirements for the federal government, also looking to US v. Rahimi role in cleaning up the mess the Court set for themselves two years prior with NY State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen’s requirement that gun regulations be consistent with the “nation’s historical tradition” of 2A regulations, and why this entire fiasco is a perfect representation of the problems with this SCOTUS’ reactionary tendencies and pseudo-originalism. After briefly assessing a final decision in State Dept. v. Muñoz, and how it may fit into a future attack on marriage equality, Shamshiri, Sam, and Emma wrap up the interview by pondering the future of this Court under a theoretical second Biden term.

And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma watch a former head of the Shin Bet unpack the root of Israeli insecurity in their occupation of Gaza, Van Jones compares anti-settlement protesters to pogroms and Keffiyehs to Confederate Flags, and the MR team touches on (totally unrelated) the rise of actual violence against Muslims in the US. John from San Antonio provides some primary previews, Real America’s Voice, CNN, and Fox preview the absurd narratives heading into Thursday’s presidential debate, and Scatt Walsh talks homosexuality. Elijah from Tennessee discusses the pervasion of Nazism in gaming, Neil from San Francisco on Big Tech and the wealthy’s eviction of the working class, and Kowalski gives a long-awaited Ag Report, plus, your calls and IMs!
