    Trump Lashes Out At Staff After He Struggled To Read The US Constitution

    More and more revelations keep coming out from the forthcoming book, a very stable genius by Washington post reporters, Phil Rucker and Carol Lennox, and according to the latest revelation that has come out of this book, Donald Trump is incapable of reading the U S constitution out loud. Here’s the story that they detailed in their book. HBO was doing a documentary and they wanted current president, Donald Trump, former presidents, former vice presidents, former members of Congress, current and former judges. All they wanted them to do was each read portions of the us constitution out loud on camera. That was it. They didn’t have to interpret it.…

    Marek Edelman – Signing of the letter regarding the Constitution (44/145)

    [L] The second half of the Seventies, the beginnings of KOR, you sign a letter regarding the Constitution. A letter regarding the Constitution. Well, how could you not sign it? [L] Many people didn’t. But if a little boy came to you, tiny, frozen saying, ‘Please, sir, I’ve got a letter here, could you sign it, please?’ Would you have thrown him out into the freezing cold? How can you refuse a little girl who’s blue from the frost and cold, and hungry? [L] Yes, but later this had consequences and you got involved with working with KOR. Well yes, working with KOR is nothing new, working with KOR is…

    Is Originalism Too Hard An Enterprise? [No. 86]

    One frequent complaint about originalism is that it’s quite a hard enterprise – it’s hard to do, it’s not going to succeed, it requires a lot of skills judges don’t have, it requires a lot of investigation into history, there are these hard questions about what kind of originalism to undertake. So the question is not is originalism too hard now. That’s certainly not the only question. The question is, what can one think of a world where originalism would become much easier? And originalism has already, in my view, becoming much easier for judges, it’s becoming much more refined because of the work that’s being done. Originalism depends on…

    Putin: Constitutional Changes Will Ban Russians With Dual Citizenship & Foreign Residence From Power

    We can move towards this goal only with the active participation of society, our citizens and, of course, intense and productive work of all branches and levels of government, the potential of which should be expanded. In this regard, I would like to spend a moment discussing state structure and domestic policy, which are defined by the Fundamental Law of our country – the Constitution of the Russian Federation. I keep getting these questions all the time, including at the most recent annual news conference. Clearly, we cannot but agree with those who say that the Constitution was adopted over 25 years ago amidst a severe internal political crisis and…

    POLS 15 The Constitutional Convention (Congress)

    [music] In this lecture, we’ll focus on the Constitutional Convention. It was held in what’s now known as Independence Hall in Philadelphia from May 25th to September 17th, 1787. There were several things that all the men in attendance agreed upon. First, they all agreed that the federal government should be stronger than it was under the Articles of Confederation, but that it shouldn’t be too strong. They also agreed that the federal government should have separation of powers, that it should consist of three branches: the legislative, the executive, and the judicial. But there were plenty of disagreements as well. The most significant of these disagreements had to do…

    With Virginia ratification, where does the Equal Rights Amendment go from here?

    JUDY WOODRUFF: This year marks the 100th anniversary of women winning the right to vote in this country. People may not know it, but the fight to instill equal rights regardless of sex in our U.S. Constitution is nearly as old. That fight became a big part of the national conversation in the 1970s. Yesterday, all these years later, Virginia’s legislature voted to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, making it the 38th state to do so. That means three-quarters of all states have ratified, as the Constitution requires. But there are legal challenges still ahead, including the question of whether states had to ratify the amendment by a 1982 deadline.…
