The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Happy Monday! Sam and Emma speak with Meron Rapoport, editor of Local Call and writer at +972 Magazine, to discuss the recent passage of  Prime Minister Netanyahu's proposed judicial reforms through the Knesset, its challenges before the Supreme Court, and the unrest that's resulted. First, Sam and Emma run through updates on Republican primary polling, Donald Trump’s various indictments, Biden’s brand new student loan program, Florida’s Black history curriculum, extreme heat in Phoenix, and Twitter’s hate speech problem, before parsing a little more thoroughly through the prospects for the Presidential primary on the right. Meron Rapoport then joins, diving right into a recap of the major overhauls to the Israeli judiciary that recently took place, the role the Courts can play in reining it in, and where it will leave Israel’s supposed “democracy.” Expanding on this latter element, Rapoport walks through some of the major players involved in Netanyahu’s reforms, and the violent and genocidal stances towards Palestine and Democracy that they have maintained for decades, including Yariv Levin, Itamar Ben-Gvir, and Bezalel Smotrich. Wrapping up, Meron walks through the responses from the rest of Israel to the passing of Netanyahu’s overhaul, including how it interplays with growing anti-apartheid sentiment in recent years, and talks with Sam and Emma about the future of US-Israeli relations as the latter dives further into fascism.

And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma discuss the role of the US Supreme Court and watch Mark Joseph Stern perfectly encapsulate why Samuel Alito’s recent “leave the Court alone” rampage is absurd and obscene. They also discuss Donald Trump’s various indictments, watch Ben Shapiro explain “That’s just Don!” and Alfred and Matthew have some words to share, plus, your calls and IMs!
