Justice on Trial
The Kavanaugh Confirmation & the Supreme Court

Posted: Wed. August 28, 2019, 4:00pm PT

On June 27, 2018, Justice Anthony Kennedy slipped out of the Supreme Court building and traveled to the White House to inform President Donald Trump that he was retiring. The news touched off a media maelstrom, triggering a confirmation process that his successor, Brett Kavanaugh, would denounce three months later as a “national disgrace” and a “circus.”

At this special event and based on her #1 bestselling book (with co-author Carrie Lynn Severino), Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court, investigative journalist Mollie Ziegler Hemingway reveals the true story of what really happened during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation, based on exclusive interviews of more than 100 people—including the President of the U.S., several Supreme Court justices, high-ranking White House and Department of Justice officials, and dozens of senators.

Nasty politics and unverified accusations of sexual assault became weapons in a ruthless campaign of personal destruction. The Supreme Court has become the arbiter of America’s most vexing and divisive disputes. With the stakes of each vacancy incalculably high, has the incentive to destroy a nominee become irresistible? Will the next time a nominee promises to change the balance of the Court be even uglier and how will this affect the future of America?

Global Warming: Fact or Fiction?
Featuring Physicists Willie Soon and Elliott Bloom

Posted: Mon. August 19, 2019, 11:50pm PT

Is global warming real? Have any such predictions been established scientifically? Would massive “carbon” taxes and other controls put America and the world—especially the poor—at great risk?

At this special event, geoscientist and astrophysicist Willie Soon separates fact from fiction in the global warming debate. He explains why the forecasts from CO2 climate models have been so wrong—and why solar influences on clouds, oceans, and wind drive climate change, not CO2 emissions. Stanford University physicist Elliott Bloom then comments.
