December 7 being the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor tragedy in 1941, we’re going to spend most of our time on something that’s not discussed enough in constitutional circles – war powers and the constitution. We’ll be joined for nearly 40 minutes by someone who is probably the nation’s leading expert on war powers, Dr. Louis Fisher – who spent four decades working at the Library of Congress as Senior Specialist in Separation of Powers, and is currently Scholar in Residence at the Constitution Project.
Dr. Fisher has been invited to testify before Congress about 50 times on such issues as war powers, state secrets privilege, NSA surveillance, CIA whistleblowing, covert spending, presidential impoundment powers, and plenty more. When it comes to an understanding from the perspective of the founders – he’s got few equals.
Also joining the show to cover this topic further will be TAC National Communications Director, Mike Maharrey, who’s recent article, “I Love George Washington. Except for his Foreign Policy,” was featured here.
Christopher Lasch, of the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law, will stop in for an important segment on states’ rights vis a vis immigration policy.
