Amarica’s Constitution-10/24/23-Speakerless

Still no speaker. Is it really the case that the House can’t do anything? How might it work? What about Section 3 of the 14th Amendment - does it play any role in the Speaker selection process? Meanwhile, we turn towards the other Jordan and see the dangers of insecure borders that are inherently hard to defend. Professor Amar explains how this simple fact led him to insights that resulted in a constitutional narrative quite different from those you may have been taught, and which makes certain predictions and conclusions. Does it stand up? We begin a process, which we will return to, of seeing where it leads us. A sweeping episode - eligible for CLE credit by visiting after listening.
