Imminent Lawless Action
In 1919, The US Supreme Court in Schenck v. United States established the rule that if words create a "clear and present danger" to incite criminal activity or violence, the government has the right to prevent and punish that speech. For nearly fifty years, through wars and the Red Scare, that rule was applied largely without question. Then, in the 1969 case of Brandenburg v. Ohio, a white supremacist in Ohio, convicted for an inflammatory speech at a Klan rally, challenged his conviction saying it violated his First Amendment rights...and the Court agreed. A new test was born which has lasted for now more than 50 years. But, having been formulated in an era of much more limited media, does it still hold up today? In this episode of Make No Law: The First Amendment Podcast from Popehat.com, host Ken White explores how the First Amendment has handled inflammatory speech, from Schenck to the current Brandenburg standard and all the way up to today. With the help of Professors David Cunningham and Richard Wilson, Ken digs into what makes the “imminent lawless action” test of Brandenburg such an important turning point in First Amendment law but also investigates whether the proliferation of online communication necessitates a renewed look at the standards set out in a “simpler” time. Professor David Cunningham is professor and Chair of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis. Professor Richard Wilson is the Gladstein Distinguished Chair of Human Rights and Professor of Law and Anthropology at UConn School of Law.

President Trump impeached again. What happens next?
The majority of the U.S. House voted Wednesday to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time — making him the first U.S. president to be impeached twice. The vote was affirmed by every Democratic member and 10 Republicans. There were 197 Republicans who voted against impeachment, including all four of Minnesota’s GOP members. This unprecedented vote came exactly one week after lawmakers were forced to evacuate their proceedings to affirm the votes of the November election when a throng of armed pro-Trump rioters descended on the Capitol. Five people died as a result of the attack. Thousands of troops have already arrived in Washington and the National Guard says they’ll have 20,000 troops in D.C. for President-elect Biden’s inauguration. Outgoing Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has hinted that he might vote in favor of impeaching the President, but has said that a trial in the Senate won’t start until after inauguration. Thursday, a historian and a politician spoke with MPR News host Kerri Miller about the events leading up to this moment and what is likely to happen next. Guests: * Jeffrey Engel is founding director of the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University and co-author of “Impeachment: An American History.” He also co-hosts a podcast called “The Past, The Promise, The Presidency.” * Khalilah Brown-Dean is associate professor of political science at Quinnipiac University and host of Disrupted on Connecticut Public Radio.
