Twitter Web App : Can states require travelers to self-quarantine when they enter? What about just keeping them out? I spoke with Wayne State University constitutional scholar Jon Weinberg about those questions, and our discussion is @ Patreon.com/talkingfeds,wh… we post exclusive materials for supporters.

Twitter Web App : OK sports fans, the Supreme Court played partisan politics in Wisconsin with its last minute decision altering the election process. It harks back to Bush v Gore and is a potential harbinger of what would be an apocalyptic disaster in November. latimes.com/opinion/story/…

Twitter Web App : would be dumbfounding and completely outrageous except we've already seen it prefigured. This is not just out of bounds for an AG but completely out of the stadium. Improper 6 ways from Sunday. twitter.com/renato_mariott…

Twitter Web App : You asked, so I will answer: His name was Barack Obama.

And more people have died from COVID-19 on your watch, in JUST FIVE WEEKS, than died in an entire year of H1N1. twitter.com/realDonaldTrum…

iPhone : Let's not pretend that Trump or most Republicans have some sort of informed view about the merits and demerits of vote by mail, about different kinds of absentee ballots, etc. They haven't given it a moment's thought. They're against too many of the "wrong" people voting. Period.

Twitter Web App : I think may still hold Ivy League assist record, since played as a freshman. Much more importantly, he is universally respected, & a if not the natural choice; and his removal, like that of Atkinson, has only one explanation, and it is villainous. twitter.com/BillKristol/st…

Twitter Web App : Unreal. this should be a code red alarm. Trump has summarily removed Glenn Fine, the universally well respected IG who was tabbed to oversee his administration's management of the $2 trillion stimulus package. Deep deep rot.

Twitter Web App : .Sam Vinograd and I discuss the Atkinson firing, and why it's basically loathsome, at patreon.com/posts/35726545 (Patreon is where we post exclusive material for supporters as thanks for helping us defray costs.)

iPhone : Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg re Court’s 5-4 vote forcing Wisconsin primary to proceed as planned Tom over governor’s wishes “the court’s order, I fear, will result in massive disenfranchisement.”

iPhone : Just how villainous was the Atkinson firing? Per Sam Vinograd, as bad as commentators are saying and then some. Our discussion about it is now published at Patreon.com/talkingfeds, where we post exclusive material for supporters to thank them for helping us fund the podcast.

iPhone : No one finer (pardon the pun) to follow the money. Glenn is smart, experienced, and tough. twitter.com/kyledcheney/st…

iPhone : Study the careers of Orbán, Erdogan & Putin to see just how far Trump will go if we let him. That’s why we have fought him every step of the way. We won’t let him. twitter.com/balazscseko/st…

iPhone : And they will say both were examples of the same phenomenon: his radical yet incompetent selfishness & dishonesty. History won’t forgive that, & neither will the voters. twitter.com/BillKristol/st…
