Is America in a cold civil war? The Claremont Institute and Heritage Foundation team up to discuss the deep divide our country now finds itself in.
Claremont Institute board member Dr. Robert Curry is joined by historian Victor Davis Hanson for a discussion of Dr. Curry's new book, "Common Sense Nation: Unlocking the Power of the American Idea."
Dr. John Eastman, Founding Director of Claremont's Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence, joins Bill Frezza on the RealClear Radio Hour to examine the legacy of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
Judges must navigate between interpreting the Constitution and statutes, working within existing precedents and applying both bodies of law to particular cases. Striking this balance has policy consequences that render the Supreme Court a political branch in the public's mind. As the heated debate of Justice Antonin Scalia's replacement demonstrates, the Court is no longer seen as the "least dangerous branch." How should justices address this tension in their decisions and opinions? Can the Court return to a narrower vision of its judicial duty? If not, what judicial philosophy best fits the reality of the Court's role in a self-governing republic? Claremont's John Eastman joins an expert panel at the American Enterprise Institute to answer these questions and more. (Dr. Eastman's presentation begins at 65:09.)
Charles Kesler interviews John Eastman on the disappearing Constitution; natural law and the conservatives on the court; church, state, and religion as a public good; and the Constitution under attack.
