Jason Stanley, Jacob Urowsky Professor of Philosophy at Yale University and author of How Fascism Works, joins us.

On today's show: Mazie Hirono grills Kavanaugh about his clerkship with personal mentor Judge Alex Kozinski and how it's possible he never heard the open secret of his abusive behavior.

Jason Stanley (@jasonintrator), Professor of Philosophy at Yale, joins us to discuss his new book, 'How Fascism Works.' In this book, Stanley examines fascism from a philosophical perspective to catalog the various elements of fascist tactics, ideology and propaganda, including: law and order policy, attacking unions, destruction of norms, the one party state, looking back to a mythic past, and playing on people's anxiety during a crisis. Also on the menu: a zero sum mentality, anti-intellectualism, sexual angst, social conservatism, and social Darwinist ideas that naturalize hierarchy.

On the fun half: Stormy Daniels describes Trump's unusual, mushroom-like penis. Ken Starr says on CSPAN that he's "reaffirmed in my firm belief" in Kavanaugh because of all the women supporting him...by which we guess he means the 5 of 65 who stand by their support. Erick Erickson blows lid off Ford's eviction revenge plot; Kav's creepy friend Mark Judge flip-flops on what he remembers. Ted Cruz wishes Dems wouldn't be so quick to blame cops when they kill people; Beto O'Rourke speaks to Dallas church about Botham Jean's unjustifiable murder. Joe Rogan parrots conspiracy theories about land reform in South Africa. Trump's complacency may hurt GOP in midterms. McDonald's workers strike for $15/hour and against sexual harassment, with the support of Fight for 15. Disabled rights under attack in CA. Mark Judge's weird YouTube page. Caller Mariana reminds us how slippery and adaptable fascist messaging and tactics can be.

Journalist Beth Macy, joins us to discuss her new book, DOPESICK: Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company that Addicted America.

On today's show: Debra Katz, lawyer for Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford, says Ford considers it an attempted rape and is willing to testify.

Author Beth Macy (@papergirlmacy) joins us to discuss her new book, "DOPESICK: Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company that Addicted America." For this book, Macy investigated the long term impacts the over-prescription of opiates has had on US communities. How unemployment drove a secondary market for opiates. Purdue Pharmaceutical's 1990s marketing of Oxycontin in places where workplace injuries were highest and the money they funneled into convincing people it was safe. The large budget Purdue devoted to wooing doctors and nurses. The type of harm reduction measures that work and where they've been implemented. Does anyone responsible for this epidemic feel any remorse?

On the fun half: It's time for Democrats to let go of their fealty to norms that no longer exist. Susan Collins says she will reserve judgment on the Kavanaugh accusation. Erick Erickson defends Brett Kavanaugh; Trump Jr. mocks the accusation on Instagram. A caller shares his experience in recovery, recommends kratom as an alternative to maintenance drugs like methadone. A Marxist perspective on the Cardi B/Nicki Minaj feud. Australian school girl Harper Nielsen takes a knee during national anthem in solidarity with indigenous people. A caller recalls how he first got hooked on opiates through his student health center.

Cynthia Nixon comes up short in her challenge of Andrew Cuomo, but progressives gain across New York State.

The Host of the Benjamin Dixon, Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon ) joins us and explains the breaking news of the Paul Manafort plea deal. Manafort will plead guilty to defrauding the United States. Serious allegations of sexual assault by SCOTUS nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. Was California Senator, Diane Feinstein, hiding the Kavanaugh allegations? Diane Feinstein proves she is politically and morally failing. Why republicans almost certainly knew about the allegations against Kavanaugh. Diene Feinstein pulls a Joe Biden. The IDC loses big in New York and why there is progressive momentum in New York politics and what it teaches us about the "dum dum left". The Jimmy Dore business model and the left version of Alex Jones. Why the dum dums are stupid about Obama and insane on Tucker Carelson and the Police and PR teams are smearing Botham Jean, after he was murdered in his apartment by an off duty police department.

Legendary comedian and Majority Report amigo Andy Kindler (@AndyKindler), defends his honor after a brutal review of his comedy in the UK. Andy still hates Ricky Gervais. Was there a mob mentality at the Kindler show. Bill O'Reilly happy that Michelle Wolf lost her show on Netflix, still seems unhappy and Dennis Miller getting even less funny?? And what does Andy Kindler do during the day?

On The Fun Half: Diane Feinstein needs to go. The Republican money advantage and how to understand ideology. Republicans in Texas remove Beto signs from someones sign. Tucker Carelson and Michael Avenatti, have a stupid fight and its kind of funny. Lou Dobbs and Ed Rollins are lying and disgusting about Trump's lies on Puerto Rico. How DuPont poisoned America and the lawsuits that took them down. Jerry Brown attacks Trump on Climate. Random Rush and your calls and IMs.

Dave Weigel (@daveweigel ) of the Washington Post (and his new newsletter, The Trailer) joins MR to talk about the end of the 2018 primary season. Weigel breaks down yesterday's Rhode Island primary which saw a centrist Democratic governor, Gina Raimondo, defend her ticket against Matt Brown, a Sanders-styled progressive. Weigel and Sam then break down the last series of primaries in New York, including Cuomo v. Nixon and Zephyr Teachout's chance to win the democratic ticket for Attorneys General. Cuomo has continued to tack left in the face of Nixon's challenge.  Weigel then breaks down the AG race in NY that is a 3-way race with Maloney, James, and Teachout all within a chance to win. Teachout has struck fear in Cuomo, Weigel floats the idea that there are New York voters who will vote for Teachout with the hope that she will impeach Cuomo. As for Maloney, his position as a swing district representative is problematic. If Maloney were to win the AG primary, the Democratic party would need to fill his spot on the NY-18 ballot.

Weigel then breaks down the 2018 midterm democratic messaging, "Republicans will take your healthcare away." Republicans are floundering with how many candidates in midterms are tied up in ACA repeal lawsuits across the country. But what's more surprising is that GOP leadership is planning to repeal the ACA but magically keep all the parts constituents enjoy in the ACA, including coverage for preexisting conditions. And in the Senate, Wiegel says McConnell is signaling to donors that they need more funds, as the most recent round of polling has shown GOP candidates are not pulling away in races they thought they would.

And in the Fun Half: Dave Rubin slams Sam in a Playboy feature, Kavanaugh and the pro-life vote, progressives getting shutdown in Maryland, Rick Santorum calls out "the country of Puerto Rico" for its lackluster response in dealing with its own crisis, Raygun calls in with flawless logic about why Puerto Rico is an island, why is America warehousing migrant children, our addiction to military industrial jobs, Dana Rohrbacher is standing up to Chinese people who eat dogs, Kevin McCarthy is out to get Big Tech...for silencing Republicans, will Obama endorse Gillum in Florida, why doesn't MR enter the armed-insurrection discourse, how the unions are reacting to the fissuring of New York political structures on the left,

Investigative journalist and friend of the show David Dayen (@ddayen) joins us to discuss his latest piece for The New Republic, "He Was The Resistance Inside The Obama Administration."

On today's show: Trump claims his administration's actions in Puerto Rico were an "unsung success."

David Dayen (@ddayen) joins us to discuss how Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner undermined President Obama's efforts to restructure the big banks following the financial crisis of 2008. In 2009, Obama ordered his Treasury Department to finalize a "resolution" for Citi Group that would help stabilize the economy. While Obama himself wasn't necessarily in favor of nationalization, the order left the team the leeway to take that option, and at least one of them (Larry Summers) was interested in it. Dayen reports on how Geithner essentially refused Obama's order and the negative impact his bank-friendly approach could have. Also: Chuck Schumer's non-existent strategy for blocking Trump's judicial nominees and The New York Times' uneven candidate endorsements.

On the fun half: Dana Loesch argues that Dallas murder victim story "could have been very different" if the victim "was a law abiding gun owner." Brit Hume defends Tucker Carlson's "diversity" comments. Carlson apes talking points from white nationalist Youtubers. John from San Antonio on the September 13 primaries. Rachel Maddow shares news that DHS moved $10M from FEMA to ICE. More on Obama's political failings. Should the Democrats spend more time debunking trickle down economics? A caller explains why the left is at a disadvantage when it comes to grassroots action around the judiciary. Kathy Hochul's willful ignorance of how class intersects with gender. Stefan Molyneux tells fans to get rid of their Nikes and join his cult. Steve Scalise claims tax cuts always help the economy, leaves out what happened under Bush II.

Sam speaks with author and activist Darnell Moore (@Moore_Darnell) about his new book, 'No Ashes in the Fire: Coming of Age Black and Free in America.'

On today's show: Trump is pumped for 9/11 memorial, praises the endless war on terror in Shanksville, PA.

Sam speaks with Darnell Moore about his book, 'No Ashes in the Fire: Coming of Age Black and Free in America.' In this memoir, Moore details the abuse he suffered growing up black, gay and poor in Camden, NJ and how he learned to love himself. With an intersectional critique of white supremacy and heterosexism, Moore examines the complex ways toxic masculinity weaves itself into the lives of people in marginalized communities and society at large. Moore also discusses coming to terms with the actions of his abusive father, who was just 15 when Moore was born, and how his family and community impacted his development. Lastly, he discusses his involvement in the Movement for Black Lives and the importance of coalition building to all liberation movements.

On the fun half: Trump stars in his own version of "GoldenEye." How will automation affect the future of the labor movement? Trump makes light of terrorists who killed US soldiers in Omarosa tape. Miss Michigan introduces herself by blasting Flint's water problems. NM Congressional candidate Janice Arnold Jones slams Native American opponent Deb Haaland, says she didn't grow up on a reservation. Trump's jubilant 9/11 photo. Ezra Klein sucks off Silicon Valley. The MR crew remembers the 1973 coup in Chile, when socialist president Salvador Allende was overthrown by US-backed fascist Augusto Pinochet. Nicki Minaj vs. Cardi B: whose side are you on? Jamie ruins the fun half. Beto O'Rourke's great campaign ad. An update on Lula. A caller breaks down Dinesh D'Souza's new movie, plugs Punks for Progress and anarchist thinker Errico Malatesta. Michael's take on the #resistance response to Nike x Kaepernick.

What's the humanitarian answer to the crisis in Venezuela? Michael parallels the coup in Venezuela with Lula's situation in Brazil. Obama says Trump is the symptom, not the cause.

Will Trump pivot to economic nationalism? Jamie recalls sad Bernie bros at a DNC marijuana party. Cynthia Nixon responds to Rosh Hashanah NYS Dem Committee mailer.

Digby (Heather Parton) (@digby56) and Judy Gold (@JewdyGold) join us.

On today's show: Brett Kavanaugh may have perjured himself four times in 2008 confirmation hearings. Trump tries and fails twice to say the word "anonymous."

Judy Gold (@JewdyGold) joins us for her semi-regular rage fest. Judy gives props to Obama, negative shout outs to Lindsey Graham. But Obama framed m4a as a "new idea," isn't that kind of wack? Judy on having shows canceled over her politics and certain jokes she makes. Is Trump a regular Republican? A new Jimmy Reefercake song is played.

On the fun half: Alex Jones and Laura Loomer accost Jack Dorsey over Twitter "censorship" after tech hearing.

Kamala Harris grills Kavanaugh on his discussion of the Mueller probe with Kasowitz, the law firm founded by Trump's personal lawyer. Cory Booker threatens to release Kavanaugh's racial profiling email as act of civil disobedience. Kavanaugh doesn't believe Roe v. Wade is settled precedent; Harris asks Kavanaugh about laws governing the male body. Richard Blumenthal presses Brett Kavanaugh to recuse himself on Trump's criminal and civil matters; he refuses.
