The utility of "skinny bills" in the face of GOP obstructionism. Biden's firings at the CFPB, NLRB and their significance.

Sam hosts Vanessa Williamson (@V_Williamson), a Brookings Institute fellow, to discuss her recent piece in Dissent Magazine, "The Austerity Politics of White Supremacy," on how the cult of the "taxpayer" functions as an effective veneer to push through racist attacks on democracy.

On today's show: Cori Bush says House should impeach Trump, a white supremacist president, GOP boos her. House GOP member says Trump and his supporters aren't racist.... they're just afraid of immigrants crossing the border and not being able to say offensive things!

Sam hosts Vanessa Williamson (@V_Williamson), a Brookings Institute fellow, to discuss her recent piece in Dissent Magazine, "The Austerity Politics of White Supremacy," on how the cult of the "taxpayer" functions as an effective veneer to push through racist attacks on democracy. In the days of Reconstruction, the Southern planter class found it difficult to get poor whites on their side without appealing to their material interests. By re-framing policy in terms of taxes, they got tax-burdened whites on board with a project of austerity which continues to this day.

On the fun half: Poll: QAnon favorability is highest among young people. Marjorie Taylor Greene unveils plan to impeach Joe Biden. QAnon Shaman describes how the cops let him leave the capitol. Trumpers yell at Rep Correa in airport. A plug for National Educators United (nationaleducatorsunited.org). Protestor before capitol building yelling "we were invited!"

On today's show: Democratic House member says GOP reps are telling him they fear for their lives if they vote to impeach Trump.

Sam hosts Adam Jentleson (@AJentleson), former advisor to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, to discuss his new book Kill Switch: The Rise of the Modern Senate and the Crippling of American Democracy on how the filibuster negatively impacts American democracy. How John C. Calhoun and other Southern Senators pioneered the filibuster to block civil rights legislation during Reconstruction. How it persisted through the Jim Crow era and became normalized. Reforms that could change the majority required to pass legislation in the Senate back to 50%.

Asked if he feels responsible for recent events, Home Depot CEO Ken Langone feels betrayed by last week's riots: "I didn't sign up for that!"

On the fun half: GOP House member says there's violence on both sides of the aisle. Asked about companies opposing Trump, Lauren Boebert says Democrats were the ones who normalized violence. NJ Congresswoman asserts that GOP Reps were taking civilians on recon tours through the House the day before riots took place.

Pompeo ignores questions from VOA reporter who was reassigned after challenging Pompeo w/ hard questions about his role in delegimitizing election results. Mike Pompeo says Al Qaeda's Abu Mohammed al-Masri was assassinated in Tehran in August and that shows Al Qaida "home base" is in Iran. Plus, your calls and IMs!

On today's show: In victory speech, Warnock pays tribute to mother and family who got him there. Jon Ossoff touts pandemic relief in his victory speech.

David Wallace-Wells (@dwallacewells) joins the program to discuss his recent New York Magazine piece, "America's Vaccine Rollout Is Already a Disaster." Why CA is the center of the fall/winter surge and the arrival of a new strain of Covid. Why are healthcare workers resisting the vaccine? Cuomo's patronage deal with private hospitals.

Gov Fetterman from Senate chamber. MAGA riots break out at capitol. Trump addresses crowd, says they’re going to take back the country. Trump supporters raise a cross outside capitol. Trump supporters tell police they don't support them anymore because police aren't defending the constitution. Trump supporters in Georgia explain how they vote, say they don't believe Trump lost election, anything can happen (maybe a civil war). Dave Rubin is skeptical of reports that California hospital ICUs are at capacity because he sees empty parking lots, "I don't know I'm just asking questions." Charlie Kirk says if you don't defy state public health orders you're part of the problem. Kansas City tenant organizers erect a human blockade outside Jackson County courthouse. Plus, your calls and IMs.

On today's best of: Sam hosts former Republican strategist and consultant Stuart Stevens (@stuartpstevens) to discuss his new book It Was All a Lie: How the Republican Party Became Donald Trump on how the GOP was always destined to become the party of Trump. While the Republican Party once stood for principles like “limited government” and “personal responsibility,” Stevens believes its worst tendencies have long since taken over and enabled the rise of Trump. Sam takes Stevens to task for some of these assumptions, prompting a lively exchange of ideas.
