The History Behind the Supreme Court Showdown Over Tribal Land Is Bloody and Violent. For …“The Supreme Court case no one is talking about” began with a murder. It could end with 43 percent of Oklahoma’s land being returned to tribal governments. In a way Carpenter v. Murphy encapsulates the larger history of Native dispossession—a story of bloody violence dissolving into lawsuits and hearings. The great accomplishment of This Land, the podcast about the case hosted by charismatic Cherokee journalist Rebecca Nagle, is that it never loses sight of the human lives at stake in the dry legalese of today’s tribal relations.  In 1999, Muscogee Creek citizen Patrick Murphy killed his girlfriend’s ex-husband and cut off his genitals. He was sentenced to death by the state of Oklahoma. His lawyers argued that the state didn’t have jurisdiction to prosecute the crime, because it took place on his tribe’s reservation. But does…

Scott Walker admits it: Former Wisconsin governor argues votes in metropolitan areas shoul…Melissa Joskow / Media Matters In the wake of a Supreme Court decision that ruled partisan gerrymandering of voting districts is not in the high court’s purview, expect to hear more shameless and outlandish pro-gerrymandering commentary from antidemocratic conservative pundits.  On June 27, the Supreme Court issued a 5-4 decision in Rucho v.

In its majority opinion, the conservative wing of the bench said the court had no jurisdiction to review the constitutionality of partisan gerrymandering — when the majority party in a state legislature redraws voting districts to its own numerical advantage — because the issue is a political question.   Hours after the decision was released, former Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker attempted to tout the supposed fairness of Wisconsin’s 2018 State Assembly elections in which Democrats captured just 36 of…

Trump Is Betting on Race in 2020. He May Not Have a Choice.

Trump Is Betting on Race in 2020. He May Not Have a Choice.Buried beneath the blustery bravado of Donald Trump’s openly racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color were clear signs of electoral anxiety.Trump insists he is producing great results for the country, especially on the economy. And yet, at the price of provoking great backlash, he moved in an unprecedented manner this week to portray four non-white Democratic representatives as fundamentally un-American, not only ideologically but also racially and ethnically.In so doing, Trump has telegraphed that, ahead of 2020, he hopes to focus at least as much on the jagged divide of “Who is a real American?” as on the traditional question incumbent presidents seeking reelection highlight during generally good economic times: “Are you better off than you were four years ago?”That choice may reflect the convergence of inclination and calculation. Trump’s instinct is to center his politics…
