GOP hoping 2020 election will be decided in the courts
44 min

You may have stumbled on the promising Supreme Court rulings allowing longer deadlines for absentee ballots in PA, NC. But these are also 'wait and see' rulings. The Supreme Court is reserving the right to decide the election at a later date, if it's close. Joy says, “We may be on the cusp of the Supreme Court, and not the people, deciding the election for the second time in 20 years.”

"The Dead Are Arising"
Malcolm X is a towering cultural figure. Movies have been made about him, books have been written, and he’s been mythologized since his assassination in 1965. But an encounter at a cocktail party in Detroit led journalist Les Payne to realize how much more there was to understand about the man.   Les Payne spent the last three decades of his life learning everything he could about Malcolm X. The result is The Dead Are Arising: The Life of Malcolm X, a new book that sheds light on the people, places, and experiences that shaped Malcolm X into the man he’d become. Late last month, The Dead Are Arising won a 2020 National Book Award for nonfiction.   It’s praise that Les Payne would not live to hear. Payne died in 2018 while still working to put the final touches on his book. So his daughter, Tamara Payne, who had been a researcher with him from the start of the project, finished the work.   On this episode of Into America, Trymaine Lee sits down with Tamara and her mother, Violet Payne, to talk about Les Payne, their family’s love for Malcolm X, and the legacies of these two men.

How the Recent Supreme Court 5-4 Decision in the NY/Religion Case Proves the Need to Add Justices
The recent *Supreme Court* decision, in which the court struck down New York's attempt to limit the size of *religious gatherings* *for public safety reasons*, provides a clear and compelling example of why we must increase the number of Supreme Court justices. We should not be locked in the perpetual battle of decisions that are decided by one justice. When we do that, we are letting one non-elected individual appointed by a partisan president set constitutional policy for 330,000,000 Americans. That is as dangerous as it is foolish. There is *NOTHING i*n the Constitution requiring nine Supreme Court justice. *During our nation's history we have had as few as five and as many as ten justices on the Supreme Court.* The time has come when we should no longer let just one swing justice - not Amy Coney Barrett, not the late Ruth Bader Ginsberg, not any other justice - decide what the Constitution means for 330,000,000 Americans. Here is what should be done to fix a problem we're been enduring for far too long.      *Please consider becoming a #TeamJustice patron at:  https://www.patreon.com/glennkirschner * *My podcast, "Justice Matters with Glenn Kirschner" can be downloaded where you get your podcasts*.
