Charles Kesler discusses “Which Republican Party Is Donald Trump’s” on the Seth and Chris Show - 5/1/17
Claremont Institute Senior Fellow Dr. Charles Kesler joined the Seth and Chris Show on May 1st to discuss his latest New York Times opinion piece, Donald Trump Is a Real Republican, and That’s a Good Thing.
In this episode Dr. John C. Eastman, Founding Director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, and his guest Joseph Tartakovsky, Nevada Deputy Solicitor General and the Claremont Institute's James Wilson Fellow in Constitutional Law, discuss religious discrimination issues within Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer.
This case was argued before the Supreme Court of the United States on April 19th. The issue before the Court involves the Missouri Department of Natural Resources denial of a state grant to resurface a playground at a child-learning center in Missouri solely because a church operates the center. The church argued that its exclusion from a state run program, whose purpose is to assist non-profit organizations with obtaining rubber playground surfaces, is a violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause by discriminating against religious institutions. Meanwhile, the state argued that there is no constitutional violation because the church can still run its learning center, and the state constitution forbids government aid to educational institutions that have a religious affiliation.
Additionally, Dr. Eastman was joined by Professor Anthony T. Caso to take a look at what Justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court may mean for our efforts to roll back the administrative state and restore the constitution’s limitations on executive power. Professor Caso is the Director of our Constitutional Jurisprudence Clinic at Chapman University’s Fowler School of Law.
On April 7th, Claremont Review of Books Senior Editor William Voegeli joined Deutsche Welle's Ben Bathke to discuss his latest CRB piece, entitled "The Democratic Party’s Identity Crisis."
After Democrats successfully blocked Judge Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court nomination from advancing in the Senate, Dr. John C. Eastman, Founding Director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, joined "McIntyre in the Morning" to discuss the Republicans' vow to use the nuclear option.
During the Obama administration we watched the government's willingness to enforce its preferences in the lives of citizens increase exponentially in almost every arena. In this podcast Dr. John C. Eastman, Founding Director of the Claremont Institute's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, and his guests will take up two cases arguing against this unconstitutional interference: Murr v. Wisconsin, a property rights case; and Gloucester County School Board v. G.G., a transgender bathroom case.
John Groen, lead counsel for the Murr family in Murr v. Wisconsin, and General Counsel and Senior Attorney for the Pacific Legal Foundation joins us in this town hall. The Murrs challenge a legal precedent instituted in Penn Central Transportation Co. v. City of New York (1978), which made it nearly impossible for property owners to win compensation when state regulations take their property. The Center filed a brief supporting the Murrs' argument that regulations that effectively hold private property hostage require just compensation under the Constitution.
On March 6 the Supreme Court vacated and remanded our second case back to the 4th Circuit after President Trump rescinded the guidance that added protections for transgender students to Title IX. Dr. Eastman is joined by Stephanie Taub, Counsel with First Liberty Institute, to discuss Gloucester County School Board v. G.G., and its return to the 4th Circuit. In 2015 a transgender student in Virginia sued the school district for access to the men's bathroom. The 4th Circuit affirmed the lower court's decision granting access, and the School Board appealed to the Supreme Court, asking whether the federal statute's reinterpretation by a low-level bureaucrat was entitled to deference, and whether the Department's reinterpretation of Title IX should be given effect. The Center filed a brief on behalf of the National Organization of Marriage in support of the school board.
Dr. John Eastman discusses “President Trump’s Travel Ban: Are Court Challenges Politically Motivated?” on Gurvey’s Law - 3/20/17
Claremont Institute Senior Fellow Dr. John Eastman joined Gurvey's Law to discuss court challenges to President Trump's recent executive order on immigration, and whether or not they are politically-motivated.
Dr. John Eastman joined the Mark Levin show on March 2, 2017 to discuss his latest piece from The Claremont Review of Books, entitled "President Trump, Meet the Real President Jackson."
President Trump's address before Congress conveyed a very different tone than his inaugural or campaign speeches.
Instead of focusing on what he sees as the country's disastrous condition, he touted improvements he says are coming. Now the question is whether Congress will agree with his plans. Right now, both sides are meeting on healthcare reform.
