Since Thurgood Marshall is trending, I’ll say he must surely be applauding from the heavens tonight over the addition of Justice Ketanji Brown to the Supreme Court. She is a justice truly worthy of his legacy. The road will be rocky, but she’s ready. ❤️

Delete those period tracking apps if you’re a woman of childbearing age in a red state. Solid advice to prevent your Republican state government, prosecutors or litigious neighbors from using the data against you one day should you have an unwanted or life-threatening pregnancy.

Senator, why did you contact Georgia officials to try and push them to throw out valid votes and hand the state to Trump after the 2020 election? Also, bragging about how long it took Leonard Leo and the rest of you to strip half the population of their rights seems odd, no? twitter.com/lindseygrahams…

Great. Just dandy. And I’ll have to nick that monicker: “happy history bills.” twitter.com/senpolehanki/s…

It was so great speaking with Deborah Watts, a cousin of Emmett Till, whose lynching still haunts this country and it’s justice system. And it still haunts me how much that sweet-faced boy physically resembled a later child who was senselessly killed: Tamir Rice. #thereidout twitter.com/isabelwilkerso…

Thanks to @Sen_JoeManchin and @SenatorSinema who value the filibuster over women's rights. And over voting rights. And over breathable air. And over Native American rights. And over our right not be massacred by an assault rifle. twitter.com/JoyAnnReid/sta…

@JoyAnnReid @SenWhitehouse Hold the House. Add just 2 more Democratic Senators. Eliminate the filibuster and pass a bill codifying Roe into law. That's our job in November and it's doable. If you voted in 2020 and vote again in 2022, we will win. --Brian Tyler Cohen

“NOPE.” @SenWhitehouse’s short, blunt answer when I asked him if Democrats have 50 votes to relax the filibuster to pass a bill codifying Roe. He reiterated that they need 52-54 Dem Senators in the next Senate term. #TheReidOut

Emmett Till's family wants the White woman who accused the 14-year-old Till of making improper advances arrested now that an unserved warrant has been unearthed 67 years later. Deborah Watts, cousin of Emmett Till, joins @JoyAnnReid TONIGHT at 7 pm ET on @MSNBC #reiders.

Our opening convo on @thereidout tonight will be on the perfectly alignment of the goals of the SCOTUS majority, white evangelicals and the Republican Party. Those six justices are partisan, religious activists, and not even faking “balls & strikes” guests: @irin & @SenWhitehouse twitter.com/kylegriffin1/s…

What we do know is that the zealous minority forces who crave a stylistic if not total return to America’s cruel original state of nature have had a plan brewing not just for 50 years; but really since the day the civil war ended. And they are relentlessly implementing that plan.
20h
A large majority of Americans categorically do not want to live in an 18th century-style autocracy. They wouldn’t want to be 1780s Virginians or South Carolinians or even New Yorkers of that time. But it’s not clear that the majority is equipped with a plan to prevent it.
20h
plus a presidency that swings wildly from inertia to autocracy, depending on whether it is held by the party that believes in a “one nation” Lincolnesque philosophy, or in the wildcat chaos, mass human exploitation and unfettered greed of the founding era.
20h
That is where we currently stand. With a fractured, barely holding collection of 50 little nations and the territories that are the remaining evidence of our empire, each making their own citizenship standards plus a federal legislature that is weaker and more stagnant by the day
20h
Legislating a return to this fundamental state of play and societal order, has taken the brand name “originalism.” It is currently the political, religious and social philosophy of the minority Republican Party and their six judges who apparently currently rule us.
20h
Unfettered wealth creation, white male dominion, a dearth of taxation, a particular brand of hyper conservative Christian* religion as the foundation of the social structure with no deviation from gender roles or hierarchies, and enforced cultural conservatism were the norm then.
20h
Wealthy white Christian* male landowners enjoyed extraordinary control over all of these groups of people, and used it, plus guns and religion to wipe out most indigenous people (who were considered “savages” entitled to neither land nor rights) and to amass extravagant fortunes.
20h
In the 18th century, Africans were enslaved/forced laborers with neither civil nor citizenship rights, i.e voting. Women were little better than property. Their lives and bodies were fully controlled by their fathers, husbands or male relatives. Most whites were desperately poor.
20h
Shorter SCOTUS majority: -Women: state property -Climate: can’t regulate polluters -Pandemics: can’t mandate safety -Native tribes: no sovereignty -Miranda: you’re out of luck -AA voters: taxation w/o representation -Right wing Christianity: supreme above the constitution and law
22h
Clean air. They ruled against clean air. This means more respiratory illness. More cancer. More climate-fueled disasters. All because 6 people are owned by polluters. This Court is not legitimate and we don't have to pretend there is no recourse.

Next term, SCOTUS will rule on whether coup d’etats are okay. They probably already have four votes for “yes.” twitter.com/mikesacksesq/s…

As close as you’re gonna get to a judicial philosophy of this court majority. twitter.com/truwordsrspoke…

Where the battle lines will be drawn. Unfortunately, the right to privacy is the very thing the “originalists” on the SCOTUS don’t view as valid since such a thing wasn’t recognized in 1787 and neither Republicans nor white evangelicals want it. twitter.com/shevrinjones/s…

In 2022—four Justices appointed by a POTUS who lost the popular vote have gutted •EPA •Miranda rights •Abortion access •State gun safety laws •Religion state separation •4th Amdmnt protections from BP •Bills to stop racial gerrymandering And Dems refuse to expand SCOTUS🤦🏽‍♂️

President Biden says he favors doing away with the filibuster to codify privacy rights. Not just Roe's protections for abortion, but the full range of privacy rights including contraception & same sex marriage. Now he needs majorities in Congress to get it done. Let's go!

Kind of... the ruling sends the case back to an extremely hostile lower court. We'll likely be right back here again. The only thing Roberts and Kavanaugh did here was try to at least appear consistent with their prior ruling against Trump re ending DACA. Not much of a "win." twitter.com/nycsouthpaw/st…
This wonderful thing happened today. We can certainly pause to celebrate. It's a moment that was 232 years in the making and the result of 80 mil voters who chose Joe Biden as president over Donald Trump. So we now have Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson on the nation's highest court. twitter.com/Forbes/status/…
Narrator: he's going to do it regardless, if Republicans win back the Senate majority... msn.com/en-us/news/pol… twitter.com/StevenTDennis/…

Trump allies have been trying to frame Cassidy Hutchinson's role in the White House as "low level." But two former Trump White House aides tell me that senior White House aides were bumped off Air Force One so that Hutchinson could have a seat. Meadows required she be on board.
