is right we're only ways right because we're the last word and for nobody could ever reverse us but that doesn't mean they're right the law is what the supreme court says it is well that's what people have said over the years but the supreme court has changed its mind the supreme court validated slavery this very good validated segregation supreme court permitted the confinement of one hundred ten thousand japanese most of the american citizens in detention to. three sterilization of people they go were mentally unfit some of the worst decisions of the world the conference frequent many of them by liberal judges the japanese detention douglas lack the sterilization cases holmes brandeis also ordered that so you know we don't know what the issues are going to be thirty years from now when kavanagh is reaching perhaps it's retirement age so you don't anticipate how a justice will books you don't know what the issues are all this court did say that the putting those japanese into special places and was wrong they did and justice
8:01 am
goldberg said that when i was locklear fifty years ago but this was a holding by the court that said clearly categorically that they were versing that the situation then thank god for that that was one of the most ferenc decisions in all of american history franklin delano roosevelt's order forests of hugo black earl warren who are the liberals so when you have a war you just never know and it was some of the conservatives in america were opposed to it so you know you just never know the court this time of course think that everybody cavanagh is going to be a conservative but nobody doubt that but what kind of a conservative he is remains to be seen now and always great talking with you i love you to be well thanks to you time today and again the book is the case against impeaching trump in south right now and available everywhere including for download. stay right there is more politicking right after the break.

8:03 am
like a bull in a china shop donald trump style and negotiation skills were on full display at this year's annual nato gathering he was not shy about how he feels about the alliance now the trump putting some of his front and center book be a mere photo op or something more. they gave us national camera. roughly once they showed some of the you for them. uncool videos during the boom. and some of them with the broccoli staring at. going down more on string i don't rightly don't t.v. . back to politics nato terrorists and a closed door meeting between trump. puton lots to talk about with my next guests
8:04 am
expert g.h. chris lou joins us from washington he served as white house cabinet secretary and deputy secretary of labor during the obama administration he's now a senior fellow at the university of virginia miller center and david jolly former republican representative from florida who joins us from temple. this yesterday for play tonight so trump was in the middle of trump was in the middle of the visit to make two based on that cruise how's he doing so far well you've had a tumultuous start to the meeting and he has called the germans captive of the russians which i think is a statement that would be called into question by most foreign policy experts as well as most members of congress as well it is it is troubling that telling that he has set the nato alliance is the most successful military alliance in the history
8:05 am
of the world and this is a president who seems intent on disrupting that which has dangerous consequences not only for american national security but for the world order as well david your reaction. yeah look i would agree largely with chris this is a president who has taken a notably different posture towards nato compared to any of his predecessors regardless of party and it's left a lot of americans questioning why he would do this in terms of american history this is one of the richest alliances in defending freedom it is one that is most special to the united states the president seems intent on trying to extract concessions out of our allies and so the two questions for many americans in light of the visit with nato as well as the visit with putin it first is why the change in posture and second you can't escape the context in which this is occurring which is a domestic investigation into the president's campaign it is certainly different behavior
8:06 am
than we have seen before it leaves a lot of americans with some hard questions of the president crazies gozo kolo nato members to increase defense spending to four percent from the current two percent. the white house says that's the president's thoughts it's not to announce soon to what do you make of that group well look you know presidents of both parties have gone to nato to ask them to pick up a greater share of the defense so there's nothing unique about what he's trying to do what is unique it's the style in which he's doing it which is an incredibly in tag and stick style that you know perhaps plays well in the real state business it doesn't particularly play well on the world stage especially given the number of battles that we're having with or that this administration is having with our allies right now in particular on trade issues in the number of issues where we need their cooperation on as david said this is a key strategical alliance there are nato troops from the countries that the
8:07 am
presidents of packing in afghanistan fighting side by side with us right now so yes europe needs to do more to bear the costs of the defense but there are right ways to do that and there are wrong ways to do that which is what the president's doing today david is that. wrong support nato what do you make of this. you know this goes back to the campaign larry where whether or not he had a clear understanding of article five you know the notion that any nato country that comes under attack will be protected by the others there were questions whether you understood that there were questions about whether or not he would remain committed to it he had actually florida with the idea of abandoning that this is a president who is suspicious of any multilateral alliance this is part of the nationalism that he continues to push as his agenda and reflected largely in his advisor steve bannon and others we see it in meetings at the g. seven recently where he was antagonistic to our partners there where we are seeing it in nato at the end of the day it is not
8:08 am
a good strategy for the united states we are a more secure nation when we have strong nato alliances and yes every country can do more to commit to their own national security budgets but larry this is not an impending problem we face as a country if you draw the contrast between the nato meeting and the russia meeting the reality is wherever the facts lie we know that u.s. intelligence communities have suggested that russia was adversarial to our interests in the most recent election that is a greater threat a greater question to get to the bottom of than anything related to nato and the level of contributions of our allies in that regard chris what do you expect to happen when the president meets mr putin. you know i'm not sure honestly larry that anybody knows that when when the president met putin last year the conversation was all about whether the president would force fully confront putin about the meddling in our lection and while the president sort of got to it by the end and admitted
8:09 am
that he had raised it and he believed putin's denials about that you've seen this constant walking back of that over the past year now obviously some of the statements that are come out of the president recently about the aggressive foreign policy moves by russia suggests that this is a president who not just wants to have a good relationship with russia and we can agree that's probably a good thing but seems to be willing to accommodate some of russia's a worse instincts on the world stage right now this is also president as we saw in singapore who was very consumed with the optics with the appearances of these summits as he was with kim jong un so this may be more about. some nice photos of people shaking hands rather than anything real happening. here david in response to the trump policies china has now slimmed massive thirty four billion dollars worth of u.s. explored soon cleaving soybeans report says aren't jewish and whiskey where is all
8:10 am
is go in the. donald trump is launched a trade war and those terms are accurate in this case we are now and in the midst of retaliatory effort encounter retaliatory effort you know decisions of whether or not we have a free trade economy or a protectionist economy those debates are had throughout generations but they require a very skilled commitment to a long term macro economic shift when we saw nafta in the united states where we moved to more free trade economic environment we were willing to accept the pain upfront for the strategy of long term economic growth i think the questions of this president are whether or not he is acting rationally with some coherent long term macro economic strategy or if this just a matter of what he promised his base which is we're a nation that's being taken advantage of and i'm going to go fight our adversaries economically national security whatever it might be the deep concern though is
8:11 am
tariffs are taxes we will see inflation in the united states if there is no long term economic strategy for how it leads to greater economic growth this will be a net negative for the united states economy in the near term. church said he will oppose the nomination of byrd kavanaugh or with every ounce of strength he has that may not succeed where did you think of that appointment. well look i as a democrat i have serious concerns about judge kavanagh's record not only in terms of his. stance on abortion on the affordable care act but look we are early in this process right now judge kavanaugh has twelve years of judicial opinions on the d.c. circuit that need to be reviewed one hundred thousands of pages of records from his time in the white house counsel's office during the bush administration that need to be reviewed senators should walk into this with an open mind on both sides frankly. have
8:12 am
a chance to question him and look at his record that being said this is a president who made very clear that he had a litmus test for the judges that he was going to pick and so judge kavanaugh may say all the right things he may talk about the importance of precedent but make no mistake this is a president and frankly this is a vice president who yet yesterday said they were intent on overruling roe versus wade so i think it's a fair assumption that is what judge kavanagh's inclination would be david will be here the as judge moore what do you think should roll be worried. oh it's absolutely fair and i think you will see him hedge a little bit look the votes are likely there for republicans but democrats have an opportunity here to create a defining moment going into the midterms and we will be on the heels of the midterms when all of these hearings conclude and a vote actually happens i think what we could watch for though larry is this a lot of conservative jurists are even saying that kavanagh has has said he is not looking to overturn roe v wade that may be the case but what
8:13 am
a lot of conservatives are suggesting is they can change abortion rights in the united states even within the construct of roe v wade roe v wade had this underlying viability test the notion that in the third trimester that fetus is capable of of birth and of living and so there's a viability test i think what you'll see conservative jurist do is say working within the roe v wade construct recognizing that as precedent we can still restrict abortion rights that will be the heart of the debate and i think for democrats it's largely a good one in terms of defining the contrast between the parties going into november and let let in voters decide which party they choose to support in this in this case but the public supports role. well that's exactly right and there is a disconnect between the public sentiment about two thirds of american public support of roe v wade but it's also the lack of protections at the state level there are only a handful of states maybe two handfuls of states that actually protect. the rights
8:14 am
of choice at the state level right now and so if roe is overturned or sufficiently cut back it is fair to say that many many states will take action on that end and that will be an interesting battle that we will have that will really define the political landscape for the next five to ten years would be chaos david of california allows abortion in mississippi doesn't. it would be and this is exactly how this is going to proceed sort of chris's point larry it's not that the supreme court in the united states can just decide we're going to bring up roe v wade and take a vote on whether to overturn it what will happen when cavanagh gets confirmed is this the pro-life advocacy groups will identify they will target one or two states across the country where they believe they have the greatest success at the state level to restrict or prohibit abortion perhaps across the board or in very specific cases that will then become the test that gets litigated at the state and at the
8:15 am
federal level but beginning at the district level at the state moving its way all the way to the supreme court what will likely become before come before the court is whether or not a specific state who has restricted abortion is able to keep that law on the books that will be the vote that kavanagh should be asked about do you think that the democrats get control of the house they will bring up impeachment i think that really is the defining issue if they take back the house and i believe they will take back the house there will obviously be a strong sentiment which is within the liberal base to do that i'm not sure politically that makes a lot of sense especially if the senate remains in republican control you might have a you know. it might make people in the base feel good but if you can't fundamentally remove the president from office you may be helping out his political prospects moving into twenty twenty david. i think it requires a catalyst and that catalyst could be something in the report or if the president
8:16 am
is put under oath and perjure himself it would require something rising to that level the base will want the debate and i think what you may see shy of an actual impeachment hearing should democrats take over in january you may see the judiciary committee hold a hearing with presidential scholars and and jurist who can enlighten the congress on the issues of impeachment what rises to the level of pietschmann but without a catalyst a catalyst like the miller report where the president perjuring himself under oath i don't see it advancing past that chris david both thank you very much thank you thank you guys if you would thank and thank you the viewers for joining me on this edition of politicking remember you can join the conversation on my facebook page or tweet me at king's things and do not forget to use the politicking hash tag and that's all for this edition of politicking.

8:19 am
8:20 am
and sort of the. i. promise first official visit to the u.k. is met with massive protests in london he was president that was convinced of his popularity in britain. i believe that the people in the u.k. i think that those people. like me a lot i don't know anybody and i don't know anybody that wants to come here we don't want to. reaches its climax this coming weekend in russia with belgium taking on a england on saturday for third place of the tournament but of course a huge final on sunday between france and croatia. aggression chaos
8:21 am
a hearing into an f.b.i. agent trying to sentence him to insults and shall take the agent was once part of from russia collusion probe but there was also a familiar suspect in the frame to i strongly believe today's hearing is just another victory. and another milestone in our going to be campaign of terror america. other good morning telly i'm here in moscow this friday the thirteenth of july my name is kevin o. in this is r.t. international in the headlines this morning the first donald trump's on his first official visit to the u.k. it's been a little short of a warm welcome though for most people there with huge crowds gathering to protest against the u.s. president british prime minister to reason may played host to the lavish dinner for him at a stately home on thursday night and he's next you to meet a number of you care facials including the new foreign secretary jeremy hunt will
8:22 am
also be meeting the queen windsor castle thousands are expected to test his visit again and it's to see a chicken the reports the general mood here is that these people don't. and donald trump to be visiting the u.k. at all these people are forced just part of the pond protests that will be taking place in the u.k. for outside the next couple of days with massive protests expected to take place on friday and indeed this is donald trump official visit t.j. president. really has official working visit as opposed to the state to just take down the level of pomp that would otherwise be associated with a state leader coming to the u.k. and of course he was up well before he even arrived here the controversy surrounding his visit has been taking place with people protesting that he come here at all with even the amp he's discussing in parliament whether or not he should be allowed to do that following
8:23 am
a petition online of people saying they don't want him here but of course none of this seems to be donald trump who believes he's very much liked in this country protests there there might be protests but i believe that the people in the u.k. scotland ireland as you know i have property in ireland a property all over i think that those people they like me a lot and they agree with me on immigration well of course our we decided to ask this question to the protesters here and see how much they actually like donald trump i don't know anybody that likes and i don't know anybody that wants him to come here we don't want him. to think he's going to hear this message of people protesting that's not the point probably not. but we have to protest anyway we can't do nothing. about five people in a row in a tory government the rest of the country. signed up for. public rights is going to spank free. country don't like him that's why people come out
8:24 am
and i think donald trump said he thinks he's liked in the u.k. do you think that's true absolutely not. absolutely look at the people. seems like . this. is going to be. the central london. which is going to be. three days so. obviously against. continue in the next. church where they were ahead of the visit activists launched a crowd funding campaign for this giant balloon depicting the u.s. president as a crying toddler don't know what he privately thinks about that not happy i guess
8:25 am
not everyone supported the idea some said indeed it was disrespectful so in the interests of free speech they say activists are now raising funds for yet another balloon this time depicting the mayor of london in a similar vein as a toddler well they're angry at his decision to allow the trouble in the city in the first place we spoke to one of the campaign organizers. but it in response to the donald trump balloon been given permission by city i'm not massive. i think it's doing a good job and i respect him and i think he's definitely welcome to the u.k. and that's what most of the people in the u.k. think and you've seen through the the response of the crowd from the i you know sets up saying to you can't you don't get to represent the british people you don't talk you know elected talk on our behalf and it's not what we the majority of the british public feel is your personal vendetta with donald trump and it's using his position that it's abusing its position as man in fact to allow this to go ahead this wouldn't happen if it was a baby just wouldn't happen i think it's. just i don't like them i think
8:26 am
it's disrespect i think it's actually. quite rude and disrespectful to have to and i think we should have more dignity would you have endorsed an image of you depicting you for argument's sake as a pig which would be very offensive to muslims would you endorse but if it's peaceful and if it's safe yes really as offensive as root. he dead sea or life t.v. that he would be up for it so he can't really complain about it meantime donald trump is giving an interview to britain's daily newspaper the sun and in it he blamed me for wrecking the deal and suggested the former. would make a good prime minister. i was very saddened to see that he was leaving government and i hope he goes back at some point i think he's a great representative of your country well i'm not pitting one against the other i'm just saying i think he would make
8:27 am
a great prime minister i think he's got what it takes i actually told troops in my house to do it but she didn't agree she didn't listen to me if we do a deal like that we would be dealing with the european union instead of dealing with the u.k. so it will probably kill the deal what is more it goes to have next looks into what's called the special relationship between the two countries america and the u.k. have a special thing going a special relationship they called it language culture values defense then came trump but surely he can't ruin it right the special relationship between the u.k. and the us has been strong for many years and will have opportunity to talk about a possible thing to trading relationship re remember barack obama when he came around they couldn't get enough of him everyone wanted to shake his hand get a picture what
8:28 am
a swell guy. trump just doesn't have the charm it seems where bob was greeted with cheers and applause trump gets protests and outrage even a giant trump baby balloon and americans being told to avoid drawing attention to themselves. be aware of your surroundings and exercise caution if and expect to live in the vicinity of large gatherings keep a low profile. one would imagine a special relationship would be a little friendlier but what do we know who to say hip in this explosive and politically divided age of ours but why they hate ok trump did slap
8:29 am
britain and europe with painful tariffs and steal an island minium and mrs me certainly wasn't happy about it expressed deep disappointment at the unjustified decision of the united states to apply terrorists to steal and i'm moving in. it cannot be done by taking unilateral action against our partners then there was the whole iran mess so much effort years of work to get iran to verifiably stop pursuing nuclear weapons and then trump torpedoes it but come on you couldn't have been alone britain's always been there for the states donald trump. undermined progress towards normalization of relations ships with i have been very clear in a number of conversations with the president of the united states about the belief of the united kingdom the j c p
8:30 am
a way the nuclear deal with iran should stay then there's the. maze of government and strategy are in shambles she needs friends the back and who better than the us the people voted. to break it up so i would imagine that's what they'll do but maybe they're taking a little bit of a different route so i don't know that's what they voted for well that wasn't very helpful no trump did offer the u.k. a tariff free trade deal if it really did as the e.u. but goodness me there's very little that special in this relationship aside from how fast it's losing its specialness and on top of that trump being trump just had to rub salt in the wound i'm going to a few hot spots we have nato there we have the u.k. and then we.
