Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman
Kagro in the Morning - February 17, 2016

OK, all you David Waldman and KITM fans reading this right now, those about to tap the link above to become better informed and entertained 2 hours a day, 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year: Get up off your wallets and put some money down. It’s time. Pay for what you are consuming. It is the honor system, but you know it’s the right thing to do.

Is this country about to elect someone who is not into anal? (His wife doesn’t even poop.) Donald Trump opens up about his life in the trenches.  

Jeb! Gun! America!

David discusses the second amendment, and how the death of Justice Scalia not only puts the Supreme Court’s stance on guns into question, but shows that who is “right” or “wrong” on the constitution in the US depends on 5 votes.

Armando discusses irksome textualists and originalists, especially Scalia, and specifically "District of Columbia v. Heller”.

Would Antonin Scalia be here today if he hadn’t fallen asleep in a gun-free zone? There are just so many things we do not know.

Joan McCarter looks into the Scalia mystery, following the clues right to the top. Maybe Scalia’s replacement could be the first non-Abrahamic Supreme? Republican judicial obstruction isn’t new, but it could be broken for the Supreme Court. Chuck Schumer may go nuclear to get the process moving. Chuck Grassley thinks that maybe Obama just might have a constitutional point there.

The FBI would like Apple products easier to hack.
