"Robert Bork (Mitt Romney's top judicial adviser for Supreme Court nominees) has very, very extreme positions against a right to privacy, against a woman's right to choose, against the constitutional basis for contraception. (He) has defended poll taxes and literacy tests, and has criticized civil rights legislation in very stark terms."

– Interview with Marge Baker, vice president for policy and program planning with People for the American Way.

Interview with Marge Baker, executive vice president for policy and program planning with People for the American Way, conducted by Scott Harris

As Americans focus on their choices in this November’s presidential election, the nation’s weak economy and continuing high unemployment will be among the most important issues voters will consider. But a critical issue that doesn’t often make headlines in the election campaign relates to how the outcome of the presidential election could affect the future ideological composition of the U.S. Supreme Court. The presidency, with its power to nominate new justices to the high court gives the occupant of the White House decisive influence on shaping the makeup of the court and its future decisions.  Story continues

The three companies, Phillips Electronics, BBH New York and the YWCA, withdrew their sponsorship in response to a campaign by supporters of libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, who was excluded from the debate, and other groups critical of the Commission on Presidential Debates, a private corporation established by the Democratic and Republican parties.  Story continues

Last week, a group of local Texas environmental activists and their supporters from around the country began a nonviolent direct action protest to stop construction of the 435-mile southern leg of the Keystone XL Pipeline, which is scheduled to be built between Cushing, Okla. and Port Arthur, Texas. The pipeline is being built to bring tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada to refineries on the Gulf Coast. Some protesters have been arrested, while others are maintaining a tree-sit on the property where TransCanada is starting construction.  Story continues
