‘A dramatic change is coming’: CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin explains how a conservative Supreme Court will impact America

Published

on

On Friday, CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin laid out how Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court will shift America.

During a panel discussion hosted by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Toobin warned that “there is a dramatic change coming.”

“I don’t think same-sex marriage is in jeopardy but think about the bakery case where a baker didn’t want to make a wedding cake [for a gay couple.]” he said. “Wait until they start getting cases from hotel owners who say I don’t want to use my creativity for gay customers, and restaurant owners who don’t want to serve gay customers.”

“I mean this is a dramatic change coming, and the conservatives are in charge. There is a reason why the Evangelicals and the base of the Republican Party have stood with Donald Trump all this time. It’s not because they admire Donald Trump’s personal life, but because he has delivered on what is most important to them,” he said.

I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland. He never called me 'boy,' he always called me 'son.' Well guess what? At least there was some civility. We got things done. We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done. We got it finished. But today, you look at the other side and you're the enemy. Not the opposition, the enemy. We don't talk to each other anymore.

Net-zero: climate-saving target or delay tactic?

Published

on

With Britain set to become the first major economy to commit in law to reaching a target of net-zero emissions by 2050, what is carbon neutrality, and how will nations reach it?

- Why net-zero? -

Nations are gathered this week in the German city of Bonn to discuss implementing the Paris climate deal -- a landmark accord that in 2015 committed countries to work to limit global temperature rises.

Paris aims to cap warming at two degrees celsius (3.6 Farenheit) and requires nations to submit individually defined plans to slash the greenhouse gas emissions that are driving the mercury up.

The ground shifted under Democrats during the 2016 election, but many refuse to acknowledge just how, or in what direction. Some are still content to lose close elections gracefully, even when the stakes for American democracy are the highest they have ever been. Others are so bent on proving that their electoral strategy is sound that they refuse to acknowledge Mark Zuckerberg has broken the traditional models of voter persuasion.
