4:35 am
he had a unanimous -- big. yet he unanimous decision. most of the justices said, the discrimination begins with the woman as wager, she pays the same social security tax that men pay but that men do not could this -- family does not get the same benefit. some thought it was discrimination against the mail and parent because he would not have the choice of personally caring for the child. became a one who later chief justice, justice rehnquist , he said this is arbitrary from the point of view for the baby. question the baby have the opportunity for the care of the sole surviving parent if the parent is female but not make the parent mail? le?t was -- ma
4:36 am
that was an indication of gender lines in the law. >> wanted to talk a little bit about your career as a litigator. are starting to think about your legal career, it is an extraordinary example of how a lawyer you transformed the law. it is both a great model and inspiring. i wanted to begin with that and then open it up to questions from her audience. -- our audience. you'll have to volunteer. people have questions? i would like for you to stand up and say her name. was wondering if you could are the what you see major challenges to gender equality today?
4:37 am
justice ginsburg: in the decade of the 70's, almost all of the explicit gender lines in the law were gone. combinations of legislative changes, court cases, loss of the kind that described, benefits for men and not a woman or suppose it favors for a woman like not having to serve on , all ofrby -- a jury those categories were gone. congress passed the civil rights included --4 and 1964 and included sex as a category. discrimination was prohibited on the basis of that category.
4:38 am
discrimination did not end with the explicit lines of the laws. some of it went underground. a lot of it was not even conscious. it's what determined as unconscious bias. one of the best examples i have is a case that was brought as a title vii case in the late 1970's. it was against at&t. the fair to promote women to middle-management jobs. they shrunk disproportionately
4:39 am
at the last step. the last up was what the company called a total person test. sitting down with the candidate for promotion and having a conversation. women dropped out disproportionately. why? wasuse the interviewer overwhelmingly a white man sitting across the table from a white man and found a level of comfort. the other siden of the table was a member of a minority group or woman, the interviewer felt a little uncomfortable. know quite how to relate to someone who is different.
4:40 am
conscious. how do you get rid of that? i've told many stories about how the symphony orchestra got rid of it. someone had the brilliant idea, let's drop a curtain between the people auditioning and the testers. until well into the 70's, you never saw women in symphony orchestras. player.s perhaps a harp when the drop curtain was used, there was almost an overnight change. people who thought they could tell the difference between a woman playing and a man, whether it was the violin or anything else, turned out they were all wrong.
4:41 am
we can't do that in every sphere of human activity. facether bear that women -- barrier that women face is how do you arrange your life when you have children in the family? it is still true that women bear the burden of raising children. the joys and the trials of raising children. disproportionately, as i see more and more men are how sad it would be if they wake up and their children are grown and they have no part in raising them. a few weeks ago in santa fe, i spoke to a united way program
4:42 am
for children. of some reason, the number father's day holding the baby in their arms. society can do a lot to help in that respect. the united states is behind many amount of in the preschool care that it provides. i would say those are the major hurdles. the unconscious bias and how do a work-home balance in your life. >> x on question. -- excellent question. fourth row. state your name and ask the question. >> my name is sarah. i was wondering if you thought there were any valid constitutional arguments that
4:43 am
would prevent president obama from philly justice scalia seat on the supreme court -- filling justice scalia's seat on the supreme court. ? justice ginsburg: the president so withto dio the advice and consent of the senate. the current senate is not acting. what can be done about it? could conceive of a lawsuit, what would the response be? if you want us to vote, we will vote no. i do think that cooler heads
4:44 am
will prevail. the president is elected for four years, not three years. may be members of the senate will wake up and appreciate that that is how it should be. in the back, the two together. i have one major question. mostdo you find to be the trendy part of being the chief justice -- a being that -- most challenging part to be the justice of the supreme court? justice ginsburg: stamina.
4:45 am
[laughter] the hardest job i've ever had. the supreme court is very much what lawyers call a hot bench. the justices are really prepared for the oral argument. they have in a great amount of reading before they came on the bench. ability to stick with it. to read a lot. to be able to function alone while going to the thinking and reading process. it is a little bit like law teaching. the transition to me from being
4:46 am
a law teacher to being an appellate judge. classroom, go to the and have exercises like oral argument and go back to their office. something else that is different -- you can give it to your colleagues and ask them for help. in the end, he decide. if you are a member of the collegial court, you are powerless to do anything alone. circuit,ys on the d.c. unlike the district judge who i waslone on the court
4:47 am
powerless as a court of appeals unless one other mind agreed the magic number is five. instrument is important in the way we work. -- it is tremendously important in the way we work. when we write an opinion for the court, we are not writing it for , we have to accommodate the views of the people who are on the same side. the defense is something else.
4:48 am
it is tremendously important, collegiality. tort -- court is most collegial. we have some customs that help us. before we go on the bench, and before we can for, we go around shakesm and each justice hands with every other look our colleague in the eye as if to -- we sent out, a burning dissent opinion. as coolio says in such times, get over it. -- scalia says in such times,
4:49 am
get over it. we also celebrate birthdays. justice scalia was the only one who could truly carry a tune. we had music hours at the court. before the state of the union, we have dinner together. the justices spouses meet quarterly. it was called the lady's dining room. that was a bit of a problem when two of the spouses were meant -- men. [laughter]
4:50 am
they came up with a fine idea. the supreme court is somewhat d.adition bound a we want to call this the special dining room. -- natalie cornell dining room. she died 10 years before. no more ladies dining room, but we do have the natalie cornell dining room. that is wonderful. one roll up. >> hello. in working on gender equality, have you ever felt that progress was not enough, was not fast enough or had stalled out? what has kept you motivated to work on these issues? justice ginsburg: do i think congress is not quick enough? i am amazed at how quick the
4:51 am
progress has been. looking back to the days when i studentsf nine women and entering class of over 500. never had a woman teaching in the classroom. when i graduated, there was not a single woman on the federal appellate bench. there had been only one in the history of the united states. today, about half of law students are women. i think about 30% of the federal judges are women. it is still not enough. change hisection of right. when you think you will have enough women on the u.s. supreme court? when we are nine?
4:52 am
. [laughter] ever since the court has had nine numbers, it has all been men. mexico and i met with the new mexico supreme court, a five-member court. three are women. i met with the federal district judges. three are women including the chief judge. half the magistrate judges are women. fast.hange to me has been i sometimes worry that today's young women think there is no more discrimination, they will be disabused when they get their and they have
4:53 am
children. thought dealing with discrimination, the wrong thing back in ire.mack if you want to persuade someone, you have to do it in a way that will be acceptable to the audience. i would give the young women to women todvice to young keep pushing. but not in a way that will stop education. educate people who have not thought about what we are losing in society if we don't take full advice of the talent of our people. i think we have time for one
4:54 am
more question. 53% of the entering class are women. it's a big change from nine out of 500. all the way in the back. green shirt. >> hello. thank you for being here tonight. ones wondering if you had case that came up in the supreme court that you really wish went the other way, that you are in could be likend your biggest regret that you are helping with prevail --hoping would prevail? >> one case that you wish had come out the other way? dissent --sburg: my read my dissents. [laughter] just as john paul stevens wrote
4:55 am
a very fine dissent in citizens united. that would be on my list. shelby county. a decision that took the heart of the voting rights act. that would be another one. sometimes have happy endings. it wrong.ues got and congress has corrected the error. the lilly ledbetter fair pay act. we do have the last say in a constitutional ruling. in amendment to overturn the supreme court decision which is the rarest thing in our system. we have a constitution as powerfully hard to amend.
4:56 am
the others for the court to overrule. we just has done sometimes. the great justice that said the supreme court's is not final because it is infallible, but it is infallible only because it is i know. the history we have in this country of dissenting opinions goes back to the very worst decision the court ever made in the dread caught -- dred scott case. .hey dissented justice curtis wrote a fine dissent. think of the era of separate first equal, plessy versus equal -- ferguson. collins -- think of the descriptive of each cases that
4:57 am
came to the time of world war i when justice brandeis and justice holmes wrote in dissent. both dissents are today the law of the land. as you can see from a dissent you will see what i will disagree with. i also might mention an impressive dissent written by justice breyer a couple years ago. that was why the death penalty is cruel and unusual punishment. >> does have been so inspired to all of us. them aseer on the court
4:58 am
an advocate and scholar, so profoundly changed not only the nation, but the world. here starting a legal career, the opportunity to spend an hour listening to you about your career and what the law can do, i can't think of a better way to start law school. please join me in a round of applause for justice ginsburg. [applause] >> today -- the obama administration foreign ministry. james clapper on how the presidential candidates are briefed by intelligence agencies at today's washington journal is dedicated to education policy and later, live coverage of the u.s. house.
4:59 am
the sunday night on q&a, author and -- discusses his book on the making of donald trump which take his -- which takes a look on the republican nominee. >> he is speaking bottom. barnum. pt because he was the dominant force, i started to ask him about his competitors, and people who worked for him, and some big gamblers. donald does not know anything about the casino business. >> on c-span's command a. --c-span's q and a. >> the c-span radio app mexican easy to continue the election wherever you are. it is easy to download or google play. get audio coverage for c-span radio and c-span television,
5:00 am
plus podcasts for popular all the affairs -- popular public affairs. the app means you always have c-span on the go. c-span, created by america's television companies and brought to you as a public service by your satellite provider. >> former chair of the intelligence committee spoke about the threat posed by jihadist terrorism. he criticizes how the obama administration has acted in libya. this part of the act for america conference is one hour.
5:01 am
with yougreat to be and have the opportunity. i wanted to come to the conference because i wondered why they speeded up the videos of her. i found out, she always talks that fast. think about this. english is her second language. think about how fast she talks in arabic. it is great to be here. it is great that i have had a withdship, a colleagueship her for years. i work for the investigative project on terrorism. i think many of you know that steve emerson is a great friend and true hero or what he has
5:02 am
done and identifying the threat from radical jihadist him. highlighting this in the 1990's. the investigative project on werorism, what we do is debuted deep into the threat from radical jihadist him. the largest database anywhere in the world on the threat from radical jihadists. it poses that threat against the united states. for years, steve and the investigative roger has been a tool utilized by various law enforcement agents these, including the fbi, department of justice, and these agencies to gather information as they were looking at understanding the threat from radical jihad. they were looking at cases they would potentially prosecute.
5:03 am
we spent a lot of time on the -- but not the dark side the dark area of gathering intelligence. because we be here, believe there is a tremendous opportunity to take the capabilities and the database we have at the investigative project on terrorism and it to the capabilities. they have built up a huge organization, as they describe it the nra of national security, and bring closer cooperation and the sharing of information, which we think will equip the american people and others to be more informed and better equipped to fight this threat and win this war that we face from radical jihadism. that is a discussion that we
5:04 am
have going on between the two organizations on working more effectively to equip you. it is an honor to be here. bridgette has been a hero taking the risks and demonstrating a willingness to confront the threat from radical jihadism, and at the same time building an organization of 300,000 people, 1000 chapters, not only in the u.s. but around the world. to work with her, to have an opportunity to spend time with her is a great honor. our background is similar, although i did not spend seven years in a bunker. i am an immigrant. thearents, after suffering occupation of the nazis for five years -- i am a native-born
5:05 am
dutch guy. the northern part of the netherlands faced the longest occupation of any part of europe during world war ii here at my parents suffered under the of the nazisence for over five years. until they were liberated by american and canadian soldiers. forgot that. in 1956, at that point most believed, you look back and you think 11 years after the war europe is well on the road back to recovery. in reality, it wasn't. to people in europe were still suffering significantly from the effects of world war ii. there was no recovery. of three kids.
5:06 am
they had the opportunity to move to a country. we had a president that described it as the shining city on the hill. the united states of america welcomed my parents and their three kids into the united states to participate and join in the american dream. we have lived the american dream. in 1956, when my parents came, and this is a sidestep, you had to actually have a sponsor family that would help your family integrate. they would find you a place to live. they would find you a job. they would integrate you into the community. they recognized how important assimilation was. i was only 3. my brother and sister were a little older. they went to school the first day they came here.
5:07 am
they knew no english. the systemdemning for english as a second language in the classroom, but i brother and sister went to school and were taught in english. they had to figure it out. guess what, they learned bush very quickly. we had a sponsor family. we were originally supposed to go to ohio. shortly before we came to america, our sponsor family and out backs out -- backed with dad to find another sponsor family. , theys how i ended up were risk takers. they were going to cleveland. they said he went from the netherlands to holland, michigan. were originally going to cleveland. the sponsor family backed out and we ended up going to
5:08 am
holland, michigan. wolveriney i became a and not a buckeye. for those of you not from the midwest, you might not understand that, but for those who understand the rivalry between michigan and ohio state, you can understand how fortuitous it was for my family to end up in michigan and not ohio. dream.d the american mattered.hat america just think, what would europe have looked like if it had not been for america taking the lead in world war ii. what would the world look like if the united states had not taken the lead?
5:09 am
what would we look like today if america had not taken the lead? america matters. much of the world thinks they have forgotten, but they have not forgotten. in the southern part of the netherlands there is a place that is a small town in the southern part of the netherlands where over 9600 graves have been whoted by dutch families are caretakers for each one of those graves of an american serviceman or service woman who died during world war ii in that part of your. .he -- in that part of europe the dutch have not forgotten. [applause] and much of the world
5:10 am
remembers and knows that america matters. what i want to talk to you about, not only does america matter, but america is worth fighting for. america is worth fighting for. some may ask, why would you bring that up? why would you say america is worth fighting for? because of the values and what america stands for. vil that threatens us today. our family and many others, that is why you are here, we believe america is worth fighting for, because everything that america has given us. america needs us. america needs us today more than ever. it is time to fight for america, because the threat is real. what we need to do is look at
5:11 am
the threat. i got on the intelligence committee on january of 2001 by accident. i look at it as a god thing. i wanted to spend time looking on education, education choice, years on the education committee in congress. elections iran to become chairman of the education committee and lost. i was like, that is not supposed to happen. i have been working for eight years to get to that position. the speaker said, what else would you like? i said, i'm fine. he said, no, you ran a good race. i wanted to make sure you are not disappointed. you win some, you lose some. they asked a couple more times, thei said i will on
5:12 am
intelligence committee. i went to the speaker and said i would like to get on intel. i got on the intelligence committee. spendthe opportunity to -- i was learning about the intelligence business and then nine months later we had 9/11. on that day, my life changed. next 9.5 years i spent all my time focused on intelligence to learn as much as i could on how america could defend itself and eliminate the evil we face. i i -- i became very familiar with the threat. some call it radical jihadist, others call it radical islam, jihadism -- i endorse all those. i will not nitpick on what to call it.
5:13 am
others call it man-made disasters. some call it workplace violence. i do not endorse those. we are in the process of finishing a second look at the investigative project on terrorism. as we did the research for the book, there is debate about islam. we put in place a title that we are calling, a working title called, the jihad on the potomac. we thought we wanted to introduce a new term. toe importantly, we wanted identify, by using the term calaveras we could identify with the individuals and groups want. what they want is very simple. they want to establish a
5:14 am
caliphate. they want to take over a geographic portion of land. caliph,t it rolled by a someone whom they see as a successor as mohammed, and they want it to be ruled under sharia law. it is not that complicated. all you have to do is listen to what they tell us. this is not us interpreting and saying this is where we are. this is what they say. we have heard this constant message. a lot of what i tell you will not be that different than some of the things you have heard from the other speakers. we've all become very familiar with this. you hear this from a different type of perspective. rabbis, defense experts, politicians, to more effectively deal with the ways
5:15 am
that people are going to throw objections at you and those things. what about the caliphate? a democracy.in they believe in strict sharia law, islam by means submission. they believe women are second-class citizens. this is part of the garb they are starting to see through the middle east. that's right. not a very pretty picture. believe in a closed society and only tolerate the views of the caliphate belief. they believe other interpretations of islam are inferior. they believe in exploiting the tools,mmunity as
5:16 am
frequently sentencing them to death. they stand for tyranny, absolutism, censorship. simply stated, they believe in values that are the antipathy of the american experience. everything that my parents expected and aspired to when they came to the united states. we know how they work. they are very patient. they do not need immediate gratification. they are willing to wait decades to achieve their goals of death and destruction. they use island and -- they use violent and stealth jihad. the stealth part is what i am afraid of the most. of time how they penetrate into american society, invisibly. being the cancer that eats away at our values and will to fight. they will lie to deceive their enemies.
5:17 am
they have a word for it. it is ok in their religion if they can help promote the objectives. feel free to life. -- feel free to lie. what we need to do today, and what pastors and others have asked you to do, is that we have to recognize. we have to recognize there is only one place where this can happen. we need to strongly and clearly state that america will not turn its back on those that are affected by this evil. what are the threats? the number one threat is america needs to stand up and declare we will not turn our back on israel. [applause]
5:18 am
the leader of that hezbollah has stated that there is no solution to the arab-israeli conflict except with the disappearance of israel. if they all gather in israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide. if america does not stand with israel, who will? we need to strongly and clearly state that america will not turn its back on persecuted christians and religious minorities -- people that are drowned in acid, beheaded, and crucified. i will show a short video. we moved it closer to pg-13, but if i would have seen the earlier documentary i would've moved it restriction. r
5:19 am
americans, and so much of the world, have closed their eyes and are unwilling to recognize the horror of these people. ♪ these are their videos. i said to my kids, they are in their 20's and 30's, to get their reaction, one said why are they putting the ropes around these people's head? are these people actors? i said no, they are all videos
5:20 am
of isis. i said, that is not a rope. that is plastic explosives. america cannot turn its back on people being tortured, killed, crucified, drowned in acid. we cannot turn our act. if we turn our back there will be no one left to stand between that horror taking over the rest of the world. that is only the beginning of describing their hostility and brutality. , forhing that we know she has talked a little bit about that today, for those of us who are willing to identify this threat for what it is -- be prepared. we will be called the gets -- we racist,called bigots,
5:21 am
phobes. focus -- islama that is only the beginning. what they want to do is to destroy america and destroy the values that we hold dear. the values are straightforward. we know what we stand for and what we are fighting for. we do not have the slides in the right order. we believe in religious liberty. women's rights. minority rights, representative government, and freedom of speech. some would say that we have been fighting this war. say since the beginning of the founding of the muslim brotherhood in 1928. some would say with the iranian revolution of 1979.
5:22 am
my involvement full-time since 2001 would say for the past 15 years. pure and we know that the statistics since 2001 to where we are now are not encouraging. think about this. the day of the 9/11 attack, almost 3000 people were killed. on average from 2001-2007, 2500 people were losing their lives per year as a result of the threat from radical islam. 2008-2009, that number had gone .p to 3300 2012-2013, it tripled to 9000. in the past two years, we are losing almost 30,000 people per
5:23 am
year as a result of radical jihadist attacks and violence. that does not look like winning to me. 2001 weres in disbursed and isolated. they were not related. what do we have today? they are concentrated in iraq and syria, but we see them in africa, the middle east, the violence in europe, and the threat growing in the united states. when you're talking with your legislators over the next couple of days, think about a couple of things. 2007-2008, why the total deterioration in the situation? what happened? it was alluded to by some of the earlier speakers. in 2010-2011,1 --
5:24 am
remember, our president made it very clear in 2007-2008 when he thatampaigning for office he would fundamentally change our approach to the middle east. the middle east would see america differently. he said that on a pbs radio station. he was right. that is outocument there that is highly classified called "presidential study of elective psd 11." there has been enough written that we know exactly what it said. we are asking for it to be declassified. , the president , isded to this frequently that the problems in the middle east are a result of what? they are a result of america's
5:25 am
policies in the middle east. we are the problem. study,, after they did after they issued this report, in 2011 fundamentally under psd 11, america flipped sides. we decided we would engage with the muslim brotherhood and bring about change in the middle east. if we engage the bad guys, engage with the muslim brotherhood, treat them with respect, embrace their phony arab spring, that they would behave differently. what we have experienced is everything but. when they saw america's weakness , they took advantage and exploited it. we almost lost egypt. what you need to understand is what we are seeing is not a result of them being better. is because we fundamentally
5:26 am
flipped sides. we enabled them rather than confronting them and decided we were going to defeat them. libya. a book on why, because i met with gadhafi on three occasions. i was on the floor of the house with the pastor, i do not know what is in the supreme court, but in the house of representatives the speaker looks at moses and stands under the sign in god we trust, and we begin every day with prayer. floor. the house a colleague says "hey, pete. i would like you to go with me to visit gadhafi." i said, no. he said no, gadhafi says he is going to flip sides and partner
5:27 am
with the united states. i said i would go. i met with gadhafi three different times in libya. success story.an for 40 years he has been ostracized. america says we will not engage with the muslim brotherhood. we finally had a win. gadhafi gave reparations to the families of the victims of his terrorist attacks. he got rid of his nuclear weapons. he stood side-by-side with us fighting radical jihadists. he understood the threat. it was a win. americanwin of solid bipartisan foreign-policy. it would not have happened if republicans and democrats had not focused. obama switched it by aligning with the muslim brotherhood in egypt. . met with mubara
5:28 am
they said, maybe not such a great idea going into iraq and getting rid of saddam hussein. you may not understand the forces you will and leash. an that partleash of the world. when we left, they said regardless of what you decide to you and do stand by everything that you need us to do for you to be successful. what did we do? we threw him under the bus. dhy do you think that assa is fighting so hard? he is looking at gadhafi. you do everything that they want you to do, then they outline
5:29 am
with a radical jihadists who overthrew gaddafi, and libya became a failed state. libya is now a country that exports weapons, fighters, throughoutigrants northern africa, the middle east , and into europe. . americans died the question you should also ask that was not asked by the folks on the benghazi committee, which i wish they would have asked this series of questions, who did we train,h e uned states,er. how are those people that it -- those people vetted?
5:30 am
in the book we outline these are radical jihadists. everyone knew that. the obama administration said we know they are radical jihadists and we will equip them anyway, or they didn't which means they did not read their own intelligence. who did we train, equip, arm, to overthrow gadhafi? , whoask the next question attacked the consulate and other facility in benghazi? evidenceager that the clearly will show the people who attacked and killed 4 brave americans in benghazi with the same people in the same groups
5:31 am
that we trained and equipped to get rid of gadhafi. [applause] ugly truth. a truth that i believe that ouwf information request asking those same questions, because -- [applause] >> the american people deserve that it was a conscious decision by this administration to engage with jihadists. second, that the people we engaged with ended up killing americans. if tharing that information with us will provide no problem.
