Jeffrey Toobin's take on today's U.S. Supreme Court arguments about the AFA:
'There were two lessons from Tuesday's argument in the Hobby Lobby case in the Supreme Court. First, it's very important that there are now three women Justices. Second, it's even more important that it takes five votes to win.' Jeffrey Toobin, The New Yorker
Big voting changes coming to the South in 2014 Legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin blogged in The New Yorker recently that voting rights cases will be one of the top seven legal stories of 2014. "After the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act in the Shelby County case, several Republican-dominated states immediately tightened their laws to make it harder to voter," he wrote. While legal decisions on voting rights are pending right now in Northern states including Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, many of the big stories will come from the South. With new election rules in place, next year will prove pivotal for observing how these changes might disrupt voting practices, especially for the upcoming mid-term elections. Here is a round-up of Southern states where voters face major shakeups: North Carolina The section of North Carolina's far-reaching new elections law that has gotten the most attention is the requirement for certain forms of photo identification to vote, but that provision won’t kick in until 2016 ...
(NEWSER) – In the 17 days between the time a federal judge gave the green light to *** marriage in Utah and the Supreme Court put the practice on hold, about 1,300 same-sex couples got hitched. Or did they? The state today announced that it won't recognize the marriages as valid as the matter unwinds in the courts, reports the Salt Lake Tribune. Until then, they're in marital limbo. "Please understand this position is not intended to comment on the legal status of those same-sex marriages," says a letter from the office of Gov. Gary Herbert. "That is for the courts to decide." The decision by the Supreme Court to stay the lower court's ruling means that Utah's original ban on *** marriage is now once again the law of the land, says the governor. The marriages would be valid again if same-sex supporters ultimately triumph in court, and such a victory could help those beyond Utah, says Jeffrey Toobin at CNN. That's because this could well end up being decided by the Supreme Court, and unlike earlier, narr ...

Manifesto part 2 Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” is the greatest piece of music ever, period. Hanz Zimmer, William Bell, Eric Clapton, BB King, Bob Marley, Sam Cooke, Metallica, Rob Zombie, Nora Jones, Marvin Gaye, Jay-Z, and the King (Louis Armstrong) are musical prodigies. Jeffrey Toobin and David Gergen, you are political geniuses and modern scholars. Hopefully Toobin is nominated for the Supreme Court and implements some *** common sense and reasoning instead of partisan bickering. But in true Toobin fashion, we all know he would not accept the nomination. John and Ken from KFI, never mute your facts and personal opinions. You are one of the few media personalities who speak the truth, even when the truth is not popular. I will miss listening to your discussions. Bill Handel, your effin awesome.

John and I never get out to the State Fair, instead our fall tradition is the Texas Book Festival at the Texas State Capitol. This was my first year to attend without a grandchild so I enjoyed some outstanding adult programs. First, in the House Chamber, I heard Jeffrey Toobin speak about the tension between the White House and the Supreme Court. Later in the Senate Chamber William Chafe discussed his book, BILL AND HILLARY: THE POLITICS OF THE PERSONAL. That book sparked the most spirited questions I've ever witnessed at the the Book Festival.

The lack of bipartisanship is not because we have leaders of ill will, but because the gap in ideas and vision has become so wide. This is reflected in our elections, in Congress and in the Supreme Court. Barack Obama and John Roberts personify the apex of that divide. Jeffrey Toobin expalins it to me:
Back from a Barnes & Noble event down by Union Square. CNN news correspondent Anderson Cooper moderated a lively discussion and Q&A with CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, whose latest book, The Oath, concerns the Obama White House and the Supreme Court. For Supreme Court junkies, like myself, I am always interested in the expert's insights. With the conservative Justices now holding a bare majority on many important issues, it is critical that Romney NOT be given the opportunity to appoint any new members to the Court. That said, I can hardly wait to actually read Toobin's book.
Jeffrey Toobin, in his new book about the Supreme Court, argues that the most important political story of the modern era, is the changing Republican Party. If that's true, and there is reason to believe it is, than Strom Thurmond may be perhaps the most responsilbe for reshapping the party. My conversation about Thurmond with Jospeh Crespino.
I had a fun lunch — the only kind we know! — with former News-Leader colleagues Claudette Riley, Everett Kennell and Sony Bartocci Hocklander. What wonderful, supportive friends. Love them. Then I checked out 4 books at the library. What a collection: "The Nine" by Jeffrey Toobin (about the Supreme Court); The Lincolns (inside their marriage); and Steven Tyler and James Garner biographies. Kinda weird choices, huh? Which to crack open first?
If something dont happen soon we will all be saying "" Hail the repubs"" On Friday's show we talked about something that doesn't always get a lot of attention on cable news -- the future of the Supreme Court. Author and legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin joined us to talk about some of the cases headed to the Supreme Court in the near future, and how Chief Justice Roberts seems more than willing to end the Voting Rights Act that has protected voting rights in this country for decades. With Supreme Court vacancies likely in the next four years, it's one of the many reasons why who you choose for president is extremely important. Spread the word.
Anyone interested in the Jeffrey Toobin lecture Sun. at the New Yorker Festival? Topic is 'Supreme Court in the Age of Obama.' Extra ticket.
In yesterday’s Senate debate in Massachusetts, supposedly “moderate” Republican Sen. Scott Brown said his model Supreme Court justice is Antonin Scalia! Elizabeth Warren said hers was Elena Kagan. This is what Supreme Court expert Jeffrey Toobin had to say on those choices: “There is a huge difference between those justices ... that is the difference between Roe v. Wade being overturned or being upheld; it is the difference between Citizens United being upheld or being struck down.” Remember that when you go to the polls and pick your choices for Congress.

Time for a break..after walking through Skylab & seeing the Hubble telescope we went back to the book fair and listened to talks by Jeffrey Toobin, CNN, on the Supreme Court and my most favorite fiction writer, Michael Connelly! Can't wait for his latest book Black Box later this year and the continued adventures of Hieronymous Bosch! Now to the top of the Willard Hotel for a glass of wine & view of the White House!
In his latest book about the Supreme Court, Jeffrey Toobin, a rare authority who knows how to write, frames President Obama and Chief Justice John Roberts as engaged in a kind slow-motion showdown, like two men standing on a frontier main street, which ought to get our attention.

Excuse me, but on last night's Colbert Report, did Jeffrey Toobin really say that the Supreme Court may take Citizens United even FURTHER by eliminating the need for a Super PAC and allowing contributions to go straight to the campaigns? I mean seriously, what the *** is going on with this country???
Jeffrey Toobin, author of "The Oath," joins Jennifer Granholm in "The War Room" to talk about what's at the intersection of presidential politics and the Supreme Court.
Jeffrey Toobin's new book The Oath describes how Obama and Chief Justice Roberts are at odds over constitutional law. He tells Fresh Air that while Obama likes precedent when it comes to the Supreme Court, Roberts "wants to move the court in a dramatically new direction."
Just watched an interesting interview with Jeffrey Toobin on CNN where he talks about his new book : The Oath in which he interviewed former now retired US Supreme Court Jistices Sandra Day O'Conner, David Souter and John Paul Stevens, all Republican Appointees too the Supreme Court,all 3 Justices reiterate there view that the current Iltra Conservative Republican Party is destroying the country, that the Republican Party of even 20-30 years ago is completly different then today and is destroying the country. I don't need too voice my opinion just too say I am getting this book :)
On the Supreme Court ruling: "Despite all the partisan passion, this should have been an easy case said Jeffrey Toobin in The New Yorker. Conservatives actually came up with the idea of the health-care mandate in the 1990's to avoid "free riders" on the system, and Gov. Mitt Romney successfully pioneered the mandate in Massachusetts. For two decades, no Republican suggested there was a constitutional problem with the idea because there wasn't one. Since 1937, the Supreme Court has repeatedly recognized that the Commerce Clause gives Congress a free hand to address national economic problems. It was only the Right's loathing of Obama that landed the case in the Supreme Court. In diffusing a bitter political confrontation, said Paul Jacobson in AmericanThinker.com, Roberts actually rendered a very conservative opinion. He clearly had no love for the bill himself, but as as he put it in his opinion, it is not the Supreme Court's job to "protect the people from the consequences of their political decisions." ...
CNN's Jeffrey Toobin and David Gergen break down today's Supreme Court decision on health care.
Although no one knows how the Supreme Court will rule, Thursday, on ObamaCare, journalists over the past few months have dismissed and derided the concept that the President's signature legislation could be declared unconstitutional. CNN's Jeffrey Toobin predicted an eight-to-one vote upholding the law. Former New York Times Court reporter Linda Greenhouse said that Americans who think the law is unconstitutional are "wrong." Appearing on the March 23 Situation Room, Toobin hyped, "I actually think that Chief Justice Roberts and perhaps even Justice Scalia and Justice Alito might join Justice Kennedy in upholding the law." He added, "In striking this law down, it would really be a big change in constitutional law, and I'm not sure this court is ready to do it."
On Thursday, July 19th, at 12:15pm, please join The Common Good for a lunch Discussion with Jeffrey Toobin, legal analyst for CNN and The New Yorker, and Betsey McCaughey, former Lieutenant Governor of New York. They will be discussing the implications of the upcoming Supreme Court decision regarding Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
