6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

Civil rights movement happened in the 1950s. Segregation was still as thing until then because it wasn't enforced. The 50s most people were middle class as the economy improved. They tried to desegregate schools and help fix the civil rights issues. But others tried to uphold the Plessy ruling which was against fixing civil rights.The bus boycotts happened during this period. So did the MLK march. Lots of things tried to fix the issues but they weren't fixed until later.

Civil Liberties & Bill of Rights - YouTube

Civil Liberties & Bill of Rights
6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

Civil liberties are the personal rights and freedoms the government cannot interfere with by law, the constitution or judicial procedure. These can all be found in the bill of rights. States had civil liberty clauses in their constitutions. Includes first 10 amendments. Wow this video was so quirky.

Thomas Confirmation Hearings Had Ripple Effect

Today's Supreme Court confirmation process was shaped by what happened at the hearings for Clarence Thomas 20 years ago. The hearings also changed America's political, judicial and cultural landscape.
6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

Some characteristics about Thomas are for one he is black. This is very different among the conservative side. Most are viewed as old white men. Secondly he is very strict within his constitution views. He believes the youth has no voice and he votes against civil claims. Third, he had a big scandal. This just added on to his setup for being a possible judge. Interest groups lobby him about old traditional ways. Also a lot of women disliked him for his scandal and were totally against him.

Supreme Court

Supreme Court | 6 Carpenter Ryan | Scoop.it

Click here to edit the title

6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

This website is the home base of everything to deal with the supreme court. This website has the history of all cases. It has the rules and guidelines one must follow within the court. This site has a plethora of knowledge. One of the recent cases was TORREY DALE GRADY v. NORTH CAROLINA. This case involved a man who was charged with sexual assaulting a child. Once he was released from jail they said he had to have a gps put on his car. He took this to the court saying this violated his 4th amendment right. The court said no it doesn't because he already tried to get this amended but it failed then and it failed again.

Supreme%20Court%20Procedure%20_%20Cases.pdf

6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

The jurisdiction of the supreme court includes all of the following, constitutions questions/ merits, treaties, ambassadors; controversies between states, citizens, states and citizens, federal government, states and or citizens. All of those possible cases fall under appellate jurisdiction or the ability to review, revise and overturn. 

 

The supreme court chooses cases by many different attributes. Two ways, Appeal or "appellate jurisdiction." Appeal is the largest amount of cases that are seen by the court. For a case to go to the court it must have Merit of case, which is constitutional questions and or disagreement between state and federal courts. Next it must have paperwork or "writ of certiorar" which is to be more formal. The justices will then vote on those "writs" and decide. These are held in a conference. Conferences are held to decided the cases that come in. 

 

When a court decides to hear a case they both side for briefs or a summary of the arguments. The amicus briefs are friends of the court. Once they get into court the lawyers argue their cases and such. Once the time is up the justices decided the fate. They can issues the majority opinion and the minority.  The minority is important because that shoes who voted againist the case and lost.

6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

The presidents job is stressful. Running around delegating all those task to different organizations after you sign them into a law. Its hard work man. Once you go to war its even harder because you have to do even more stuff. That game is difficult to keep everyone happy plus push your main issue.

The president is mostly traveling on Thursday. He is going to Kentucky then to Utah. Probably to talk about the new anti-service bill that is sweeping around the nation. He is being the bully pullpit by having the media follow him around where ever he goes. He is just holding press conferences in these two states.

Presidential job approval ratings from Ike to Obama

Presidential job approval ratings from Ike to Obama | 6 Carpenter Ryan | Scoop.it
Perhaps no measure better captures the public’s sentiment toward the president than job approval. It dates back to the earliest days of public opinion polling, when George Gallup asked about Franklin D. Roosevelt starting in the 1930s.
6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

The losing party in the presidential elections seem to becoming increasingly more bitter. While Obama has a 81% approval for democrats the republic hate this mans guts. I think the political efficacy just keeps dropping making everything worse for these candidates.  After the Clinton scandal the efficacy dropped a lot more causing the other party to hate them more.

Earmarks are talleys used to help monitor the amount of money each group gives to candidates. Jack kingston received $8,967,000 for voting for a military training bill from a corporation sponsoring it. That's a lot of money just for saying yes a to a bill.

Establishment clause deals with religion and they cannot force it onto anyone. Wall between church and state.Free exercise clause is freedom to express your religion . Church is meth is not okay and something about mustard. Congress shall make no law abridging freedom of speech. Freedom of press protects the press freedom. Right to peacefully assemble.

How the Supreme Court Responds to Public Opinion

How the Supreme Court Responds to Public Opinion | 6 Carpenter Ryan | Scoop.it
It has been rather challenging for legal scholars to portray the Supreme Court opinions of the past few days as somehow following logically from precedent or even from the past…
6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

The court is protected from public opinion in many different ways. They have life terms so they aren't caught up within the basic day to day drama. They are also appointed no elected like other officials.  Justices do not need the approval of citizens to do their jobs. The way they are kept closer to the people and do not go crazy is they require some citizen appointed offices to enforce their laws. They are also people themselves so they understand the citizens struggle and look at it through their eyes sometimes.

The Supreme Court made it easier Wednesday for women to sue their employers for failing to accommodate a pregnancy.

6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

I'm glad this was able to pass and benefit pregnant women. I think UPS was crazy to discriminate against a pregnant women. I mean aren't they already crazy enough? The idea that some people with other health issues get light duty but a women carrying a child does not is insane. If she wants to come in and work during her pregnancy allow her. as long as she does not slow down work production she will be fine. I am also glad UPS manned up to their mistake and honored that times change and so should policy/

6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

I learned a lot from this history lesson. The court building is only 75 years old. The building was super expensive because of how nice it looks. The furniture has been unchanged for many many years. The justices are very camera shy to help avoid public pressure. They had to beg congress for the ability to build a building just for the judicial branch and it hasnt changed since.

President Obama’s told-you-so moment

President Obama’s told-you-so moment | 6 Carpenter Ryan | Scoop.it
President Barack Obama didn’t leave much wiggle room — not for himself, and not for his critics. Getting a deal on Iran’s nuclear program is more than a win for 2015, or a legacy achievement for the fourth quarter of his presidency. It’s a validation of Obama’s whole foreign policy philosophy — a theory of the world...
6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

Obama is finally slightly getting what he wanted all a long. I don't think plan will go over well. The whole world won't come together and give sanctions for Iran. Obama wants this so bad and has wanted it since he was a senator but it doubt it will happen. If it does it would be the most successful thing he has done in a while.

I choose to analyze Franklin Roosevelt. I think his stats are fairly balanced although he should be higher. His new deal was very economical and should be pushed higher. George Washington may of done a lot as a founding father, but it was a group of him and his friends. I think Roosevelt's accomplishments are underrated.

At least a dozen Republicans and a handful of Democrats have expressed an interest in running for their party’s 2016 presidential nomination.
6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

I learned a lot about the possibility of the future election. I never realized how many potential candidates from the republican side plan to rerun again in 2016. I also see that Mitt Romney isn't going to be running this year. I think Hillary should just go ahead and admit she's running because we all know it. The republicans will have a harder time because of all their people that want to run.

6 Carpenter Ryan's insight:

a Filibuster is when one party does not want a bill passed so they start a filibuster to delay the time to debate the bill and just talk forever. a Cloture notion closed the debate on a bill and makes filibustering no more. This is how bills get passed within the senate. the minority always does the filibustering since they cannot get their own bills passed.
