50 moments from 1969 that shaped entertainment and pop culture

It was the last year of the ’60s, and the last year for Boris Karloff, Judy Garland and the Beatles, too. But it was also the first year for Led Zeppelin, Jennifer Aniston, “Easy Rider” and Jay-Z, too. John Lennon and Yoko Ono spent part of it in bed in public. The Doors’ Jim Morrison spent part of it in jail. Moviegoers spent time watching “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” while at home they watched a brand-new show called “The Brady Bunch” about a brand-new kind of blended family, the youn...

Empirical SCOTUS: If Ginsburg leaves, it could be the liberals’ biggest loss yet – A look back at previous justices replaced with more conservative successors

The saga over Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health seems to ebb and flow from the headlines almost daily. Part of the mystery relates to the amount of information shared with the public. We know that, while treating Ginsburg for rib fractures, doctors found malignant lesions in her lungs that were promptly removed, and that subsequent tests have shown no evidence of any other cancer. Ginsburg has since missed oral arguments and is reportedly recovering at home while keeping current with the cour...

Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. I’m today, so I’m going to be more summary than usual. The April calendar already appears to have a full complement of 12 cases, but the court in theory could add to it with this Friday’s grants. Admittedly, if it does so, petitioners won’t have the full 30 days to file reply briefs before oral argument. After this Friday, the court’s next scheduled conference isn’t until February 15 – almost a month from now. And any cases granted at that conference will ...

David Byrne Channels the Weird and the Ordinary in 'True Stories'

None As the frontman for , David Byrne certainly earned a reputation as a critic of culture. Songs like "Once in a Lifetime" and "Burning Down the House" ask existential questions that poke at the dull monotony of the everyday. On the surface, Byrne's only feature-length film, True Stories (1986), seems to follow suit. The characters are based on people featured in tabloid news stories that Byrne collected, later deciding to construct a narrative around their idiosyncrasies. The overlapping...

Kennedy: Barr’s ‘Uncertainty’ About Public Release Of Mueller Report ‘Disturbing’

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) said he thought attorney general nominee William Barr performed well during his hearings on Tuesday, but the senator did voice some discomfort with Barr’s uncertainty on whether or not he would release Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report to the public. “The most interesting part of it, maybe the most disturbing part of it—it’s not Mr. Barr’s fault—and I have been afraid of this, is whether the report will be made public is very uncertain. I have been worried about...

Several GOP Senators Urge Release Of Mueller Findings At Barr Hearing

One notable thread ran through Tuesday’s confirmation hearings for attorney general nominee Bill Barr: requests, from Senate Republicans, that the findings of Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s interference see the light of day. The proceedings saw repeated, rare Republican calls for transparency about a probe that President Trump and his supporters have dismissed as a witch hunt launched solely to undermine his administration. Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) urged Ba...

GOP Senators Seize On NYT Report To Grill Barr On Anti-Trump Bias At FBI

During Bill Barr’s Tuesday confirmation hearings, several Republican senators seized on reports that the FBI opened a counterintelligence probe into President Trump last year to grill the attorney general nominee on anti-Trump bias at the bureau. Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) were among the committee members who asked Barr about the New York Times’ weekend report revealing the existence of the Trump probe, pushing questio...

Justice Kavanaugh joins Chief and more liberal Justices in GVR of Kentucky capital case

This morning's Supreme Court order list is fairly short and is mostly denials of certiorari. But the last page of the order list should intrigue capital sentencing fans, and it contains an order in White v. Kentucky, No. 17-9467, in which the Court vacated the decision below "and the case is remanded to the Supreme Court of Kentucky for further consideration in light of Moore v. Texas, 581 U. S. ___ (2017)." This GVR is made extra interesting because Justice Alito issued this short dissent, whic...

Woodland Hills street becomes chanting ground for LA teachers strike supporters

Dozens of students, parents and teachers took to the streets in Woodland Hills Friday to show their support for Los Angeles teachers who are expected to go on strike Monday. Daneh Gallo, a fifth-grade teacher from Welby Way Elementary School, in West Hills, said she was not concerned about a pay raise but rather about her class size. “I had kids who were on a suicide watch and kids who were depressed,” she said, adding that with social media “the essence of our jobs has changed, but the district...

Experts Predict New SCOTUS Majority Will Take On Extreme Gerrymandering

The Supreme Court is slated to hear two blockbuster cases involving extreme partisan gerrymandering this spring—the last best chance for the nation’s highest court to take action on this pivotal issue before the 2020 census and once-a-decade redistricting process the following year. With swing vote Anthony Kennedy retired from the bench and Justice Brett Kavanaugh cementing the court’s 5-4 conservative majority, there’s a legitimate fear that their ruling may not institute a fairer system.

GOP Sen. Kennedy: Pelosi ‘Allowing Her Distaste’ For Trump To Get In Way Of A Deal

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) said Thursday that if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) put her personal feelings toward President Trump aside, it’d be a lot easier to strike a deal to end the weeks-long government shutdown. “I would just point out hate is a very underestimated emotion,” Kennedy said on CNN. “I don’t know who said that, but someone did. And I think Mrs. Pelosi is allowing her distaste for the President to interfere with resolving this shutdown.” Sen. John Kennedy: Pelosi allowing h...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Tax Proposal Isn't As "Radical" As Some Say

In an interview with Anderson Cooper on Sunday's 60 Minutes, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proposed a higher tax on the super-wealthy as part of a plan to finance the Green New Deal program.Both the tax policy (what we know of it, at least) and the GND are ambitious. The GND, is actually one of the boldest climate-change and economic policies to be discussed in Congress — ever. It aims to cut carbon emissions to keep climate change from plunging the world into a complete Doomsday scenario, whi...

Some GOP Sens Hope Trump Declares Border Emergency So They Can End Shutdown

Some Republican senators declared support of President Trump’s threat to declare a state of emergency on the southern border in order to end the ongoing government shutdown — even as they hinted it might not actually give Trump the money for his border wall. A number of GOP lawmakers said Tuesday evening that they’re open to Trump declaring a state of emergency, a move of questionable legal standing that would undoubtedly face legal challenges. Many said they weren’t sure if the declaration an...

What the Fu** — Supreme Court agrees to hear Brunetti Trademark Dispute

by Dennis Crouch Erik Brunetti’s “FUCT” line of apparel doesn’t have much appeal to my sense of style, but the clothing certainly seem to make a statement.  The USPTO refused to grant Brunetti’s application to register the mark — finding that the mark “comprises immoral * * * or scandalous matter” and thus cannot be registered under Section 2(a) of the Lanham Act. On appeal, the Federal Circuit sided with Brunetti — holding the statute unconstitutional as contrary to the Free Speech provision ...
