Good morning, joining Michael Brooks on today's Majority Report is Professor Mohamad Junaid to discuss the on-going situation in Kashmir. Brooks and Junaid begin their conversation with an overview of Kashmiri history, including its constitutional autonomy and the recent decisions by Modi's government to revoke the region's relative independence. Junaid explains that the Modi regime wants demographic transformation in Kashmir, moving Hindu Indians into the territory as a means to make way for industrialists to exploit natural resources and development opportunities in the region. Brooks and Junaid describe the Kashmiri history behind self-determination, and why the historiography of "India v. Pakistan" is not only misleading but erases the Kashmiri people and feeds into Indian and Pakistani nationalism. Broadening the conversation, Junaid explains the extent to which China has been a player in the Kashmir conflict over the past half-century. China has not been a stabilizing diplomatic force in the region despite its vast economic and trade interests in South Asia. Considering the nuclear threat and potential for "hot war" in Kashmir, how should the global community respond? Junaid argues that the rise of right-wing populism does not help the situation in Kashmir. He posits that our democratic institutions need to be more representative of our societies as a whole. A holistic approach centered on economic rights and human rights is the best antidote to the rash of right-wing populism taking hold of governments across the globe.

And in the Fun Half: Ronald Raygun on Bernie Sanders' immigration plan, Bernie's workers Bill of Rights, Glenn Greenwald is assaulted by a Bolsonaro press apparatchik,  Dan Crenshaw values Israeli alliance over the 1st Amendment, Trump tells his supporters "we are the elite," Hillary and Chelsea are yucking it up with Trevor Noah about Jeffrey Epstein, Jesse Watters' mom is ashamed of her son, Laura Ingraham playing her old "demographic changes" white supremacy, Julian Castro roasts Mayo Pete on the Daily Show, plus your calls and IMs!

Author Aaron Glantz (@Aaron_Glantz) joins us to discuss his new book, 'Homewreckers: How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins, Suckered Millions Out of Their Homes and Demolished the American Dream.'

On today's show: Leon Cooperman is upset that Warren is going after billionaires.

Author Aaron Glantz (@Aaron_Glantz) joins us to discuss his new book, 'Homewreckers: How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins, Suckered Millions Out of Their Homes and Demolished the American Dream.' The 2008 financial crisis saw countless Americans lose their homes while the banks that caused it suffered zero repercussions. Glantz outlines how crooks like Steve Mnuchin and Wilbur Ross caused the crash by preying upon the average American via poorly regulated financial products, and how the government then let them shift 100% of the blowback onto regular people. The alternate model set forth by FDR in which homes were saved. The story of Sandra Jolley, a consumer advocate who secured an $89 million whistleblower settlement on a reverse-mortgage foreclosure scheme by Mnuchin's bank.

On the fun half: John from San Antonio discusses activating non-voters, Matt Lieberman's GA Senate run. James O'Keefe leaks Amy Robach audio of ABC quashing Jeffrey Epstein investigation. Rally for Matt Bevin re-election in KY: Trump brags about Lou Dobbs calling him best president ever. Lou Dobbs calls Trump "president of 'we.'" Ilhan Omar: "Here in Minnesota we don't just welcome refugees, we send them to Congress." Ilhan says she endorses Sanders and his vision to end Western imperialism. Do former Trump voters deserve forgiveness (and universal programs)? CNBC report: Is the US still a "safe" country for refugees to apply for asylum in Canada from? Fox News guest, dog handler, ends interview with PSA about Jeffrey Epstein.

Author Corey Robin (@CoreyRobin) joins us to discuss his new book, The Enigma of Clarence Thomas.

On today's show: Kevin McCarthy indignant about impeachment, Steny Hoyer says GOP is just getting mad now.

Corey Robin (@CoreyRobin), professor of political science at Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, joins us to discuss his new book, The Enigma of Clarence Thomas. While Clarence Thomas is currently the longest serving justice on the SCOTUS, he is not widely studied or understood. In this book, Robin explores the experiences that shaped his views and decisions, tying together strands including black nationalism, Afro-pessimism, patriarchy, and a belief in unfettered capitalism and state authority. At base, Robin argues, Thomas' belief in racism as an individualized, transhistorical, and impossible-to-vanquish force is similar to what liberals believe, yet also a primary driver of his conservative ideology.

On the fun half: How will impeachment affect 2020 turnout? Ben Shapiro on Sept 24: "No quid pro quo, no impeachment...no moving goal posts." Shapiro moving the goal post Nov 1: "There was a quid pro quo...the question is whether it was corrupt." Bernie says he wants to pay for m4a in a progressive way, but doesn't want to explain that now. Bernie explains costs difference for private insurance vs. m4a health coverage. Yang on m4a: "I'm adopting the label but not the bill." Buttigieg says Democrats need "humility" in new healthcare policies. Pelosi aide Wendell Primus' anti-m4a talking points. Pelosi does not support m4a in 2020 election. Graph: US life expectancy vs. that of other developed nations. Pelosi pledges commitment to pay-go and infrastructure week. MTA turnstile protest.

On today's program, we planned to discuss, The Fallacy of Dynamic Scoring in Social Security and why we should use the first scenario in the Social Security trustee report, with Dr. Leonard Fleishman. Unfortunately, Brendan chewed through critical ethernet cables. The interview was lost, the show halted, and the MR team pivoted to its backup programming, Stoughton, Massachusetts' own Ken, Ken & Ken show. 

On the Ken, Ken, & Ken show, Ryan Grim joins the Deuce to discuss the vicious Squad and why ISIS and ICE are the same--unbelievable. The boys then explain the cruelty of the ABA in the face of Lawrence VanDyke's confirmation hearing to be a federal judge. Plus, the latest hot single from Lil Trump, "Impeach Deez Nutz." The gang also gets to your calls and IMs about all the lib losers who run our culture and the deep state.
