The Future of the Supreme Court
(archived broadcast )
The election is just five days away. And the news is fast and furious:
Minneapolis local news has video showing explosives at Al Qaqaa AFTER our troops conquered the area. With no guidance from commanders, the doors were left open for Iraqis to come in and take what they pleased. We will play the video to give you THE INSIDE SCOOP.
Republican operatives, like the Ku Klux Klan of old, are pulling out all stops to prevent Blacks from voting in Ohio and Florida and across the nation. Jim Crow is alive and well in the Republican Party which cheerfully admits to doing what amounts to a shameful violation of the Voting Rights Act and a repudiation of civil rights.
At Bush rallies, anyone who criticizes the President is immediately jailed and often beaten and fired from their jobs.
Yassir Arafat may well be dying of natural causes, perhaps the most hopeful sign for peace in the Middle East in decades.
Bush spokesmen do not deny the report in the Wall Street Journal that Bush overruled generals who wanted to attack and kill Iraqi terrorist Zarqawi.
And Chief Justice Rehnquist announced he has thyroid cancer, leading to speculation that he may not be on the bench for long.
There are so many things to discuss today on THE INSIDE SCOOP. Your calls will determine which topics we focus on. But our guest, Peter Montgomery, from People for the American Way is an expert on the Supreme Court and can detail for us what difference a Kerry Court or a Bush Court would make in our lives.
I know one big difference: a Kerry Court would NEVER take the right to vote and choose the President away from We the People.
