The Majority Report with Sam Seder (general)

Sam hosts Stephen Wertheim, the Deputy Director of Research at the Quincy Institute, to discuss his new book, Tomorrow the World: The Birth of U.S. Global Supremacy and the political and intellectual history behind U.S. global hegemony post-WWII. Wertheim and Sam begin their interview by discussing the Monroe Doctrine's implications and its role in defining the role of America's assumption of global hegemony. Wertheim explains how the Council of Foreign Relations forecasted how to best distribute world power after WWII and how the American people would prosper under a "quartered" world. However, the CFR determined a quartered-ruled world was not a politically viable option. Wertheim teases out his thesis that interventionists and internationalists together realized that global dominion and a U.S. "world order" were essential to American exceptionalism and maintaining modern humanity. Sam and Wertheim also discuss post-War State Department planners arrived at founding the United Nations. Sam and Wertheim conclude their conversation with an assessment of what's to come as American hegemony sundowns. 

And in the Fun Half: what's Trump's angle on the Hunter Biden laptop, Trump's socialism attacks don't stick with Biden, Trump says he wants to give Americans more money than Pelosi, Trump's got too much cake for the NBC stools, why Trump will attack Kristin Welker at Thursday's debate, Charlie Kirk and the Biden Ideological Gulags, plus your IMs!

Sam hosts courts and law writer at Slate Mark Joseph Stern to discuss the Amy Coney Barrett hearings and what has transpired so far on the first day of questioning. Stern and Sam begin their conversation assessing the Democratic party's strategy leading up to the Barrett hearings and why showing up to a hearing you consider a sham completely undercuts your argument. Sam and Stern also go deep on the implications of gay marriage rights, chevron doctrine, and the nondelegation doctrine. Stern lays out how a 6-3 conservative court through things like the nondelegation doctrine can lead the winddown of American self-governance.

And in the Fun Half: WHO says herd immunity is not a prescription for a pandemic, the problem with Tim Pool, Chomsky addresses political correctness and cancel culture, breaking down the argument of the left withholding votes for Biden, getting a progressive seat at the Biden table, plus your calls and IMs!

Sam hosts economist Richard Wolff to discuss his new book The Sickness is the System: When Capitalism Fails to Save Us from Pandemics or Itself. Sam and Professor Wolff begin their conversation assessing American capitalism's failure to prepare for the Covid pandemic and why the private profit system doesn't work to mitigate against a pandemic. Wolff lays out the shortcomings of the US public health system while Trump continues to fund the military and the arms industry. Wolff compares the US response to Covid to European countries and how their effective social safety net helped keep businesses open and unemployment low. Wolff and Sam then open up the discussion more broadly, asking why Americans tolerate such ineffective ideological policy solutions to bail out corporations and the largest private companies in America. 

And in the Fun Half: The Joint Chiefs of Staff are now in quarantine, Tucker Carlson says Trump is healthy again and covid isn't serious, Nomiki hits up a Qanon rally in Scottsdale, Steve Doocy has cognitive dissonance on Fox and Friends, John from San Antonio's latest election odds, Rudy Giuliani: epistemologist, Fox Doctor says it's lurid that Americans want to know Trump's health, Biden compares Bernie to Putin and Castro, plus your calls and IMs!

On today's show: Brian Kilmeade says Trump missed huge layup when he did not unequivocally renounce white supremacy. Fox and Friends guests can't say why Trump didn't condemn white supremacy.

Sam hosts Pulitzer Prize-winning Yale Historian David Blight to discuss his recent biography of Frederick Douglass, Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom, and how the Reconstruction era lives on in our contemporary politics. Sam and Blight take a deep dive into Frederick Douglass the orator and the ways his politics and activism altered between radical and pragmatism. Then Sam and Blight place Douglass in the larger historical context of reconstruction and post-reconstruction and how we are still living in the political reality forged after the Civil War.

And in the Fun Half: A new animation from 1BoredEditor, a preview of tonight's Presidential Debate, the GOP accuses Biden of doing ADD drugs, Tucker Carlson's faux populism excuses Trump's tax avoidance, leveraging the ACA in the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation and a handful close Senate races, plus your calls and IMs!

Sam hosts Aaron Kleinman, director of research at the Future Now Fund and Give Smart, to discuss this year's most important down-ballot Democratic candidates and how they'll impact policy on the state and local level. Sam and Aaron discuss the importance of resource allocation to down-ballot candidates to newly-in-play races in places like Montana, Kansas, and South Carolina as well as what fills in for traditional outreach tactics like doorknocking versus new ones like digital ads and text banking. The two then discuss the possibilities of democrats flipping statehouse majorities in Florida and Pennsylvania and how that could impact the chosen electors in a close presidential elections. Kleinman then explains the possible outcomes for Biden and Trump on election day, including what to expect if voters in democratic trending suburbs break for Biden, or if Biden fails to turn out rural voters. Sam and Aaron conclude their discussion considering what it means if the election comes down to healthcare and the possibility of the Supreme Court rolling back the ACA.

And in the Fun Half: leveraging the ACA in the face of a conservative Supreme Court, Trump's tax returns and Biden's debate strategy, Fox News spews more lies about armed Antifa while Proud Boys are themselves in Portland, and according to one pastor cops are doing god's work.

The technically legal methods Trump and the GOP will use to steal the election. The Democratic Party's uneasy relationship with its base.

On today's show: The Majority Report continues its memorial to Michael Brooks with his 2016 interview of Jacobin's Peter Frase (@pefrase) on his book Four Futures: Life After Capitalism, wherein Brooks and Frase consider the possibility of various post-capitalist futures where full automation has been achieved and the climate crisis either has or has not been solved. Using combinations of abundance/scarcity and equality/hierarchy, Frase lays out four wildly divergent paths, from the eternal peace of communism (abundance and equality), to the horrors of exterminism (scarcity and hierarchy).

Trump refuses to agree to a peaceful transition of power, complains about mail-in ballots. Nancy Pelosi clapback: "He’s trying to have the constitution of the United States swallow Clorox." Lindsey Graham says there will be a peaceful transition after we seat 9th justice.

On the fun half: Fauci is fed up with Rand Paul, who continues to insist NY did an exceptionally bad job and only has a low infection rate now because of herd immunity (neither claim is true). Dave Rubin fails to convince Bob Saget that 18% flat tax is good idea. Charlie Kirk waves poetic about how funny Trump is. Biden 2020 BLM "anarchy" graffiti. Footage of protestors pulling signs from U-Haul in Louisville; Laura Ingraham wants to know who paid for that U-Haul. Rep. Kevin McCarthy says protests against police brutality are organized on Fox and Friends. Plus, your calls and IMs!

Sam hosts Cornell Professor of American Institutions Suzanne Mettler to discuss her latest book, Four Threats: The Recurring Crises of American Democracy and what we can learn from history to understand American democracy's vulnerabilities. Mettler and Sam explore the moments in American history when the citizenry was worried about "democratic deterioration" and democratic backsliding and what caused those concerns. Mettler explains how her book explores the ostensibly settled elements of democracy, like voting rights. Mettler and Sam also recount the Wilmington, North Carolina insurrection story in 1898 when white citizens massacred black citizens and formed a constitutional convention to institute poll taxes and anti-democratic systems. 

And in the Fun Half: Trump downplays covid in Ohio while supporters boo pleads to wear masks, the right prepares for Amy Coney Barrett, why voting in 2020 matters, 1996 Sam Seder calls in to ask about 2020, Kelly Loeffler is Atilla the Hun, Dave Rubin the non-partisan lefty conservative, plus your calls and IMs!

Sam hosts USC Law Professor Jody Armour (@niggatheory) to discuss his new book N*gga Theory: Race, Language, Unequal Justice, and the Law and the importance of eradicating anti-black bias in America.

On today's show: 2016: Lindsay Graham "use my words against me" says he wouldn't appoint a nominee so close to a general election. 2018: Graham reconfirms his statement that he won't confirm a new SCOTUS nominee in an election year. Tweet: Graham says he changed his mind because Dems tried to block Kavanaugh.

Sam hosts USC Law Professor Jody Armour (@niggatheory) to discuss his new book N*gga Theory: Race, Language, Unequal Justice, and the Law and the importance of eradicating anti-black bias in America. The class distinction masquerading as a moral distinction in black respectability politics. The destructive impact of these ideas on the fight for racial justice, particularly with regard to police and prisons. How Obama represents the limits of respectability politics. The need for our criminal justice system to move away from retribution and towards restoration and rehabilitation, even in cases of interpersonal violence.

On the fun half: Nancy Pelosi offers very little other than "go vote" to save RBG seat from GOP Senate. Pelosi says Dems have arrows in their quiver to protect democracy... asked if she will use them Pelosi says "good morning" and that she's not considering packing the court, wants Trump to "see the light." Saturday: Biden appeal to GOP senators after RBG death: "please follow your conscience." Stephanie Ruhle miffed that Biden is making his campaign "Scranton v. Park Ave." Jimmy Dore says Dems are posturing over RBG death because they have approved other Trump judges. 2016 Jimmy and Sam on "the moon in Lake Michigan," Sam points out the case of RBG. AOC says go vote and not here to cast moral judgement, voting for Biden is about democracy surviving. Jon Ossoff campaign supercut of 2016 David Purdue destroying 2020 David Purdue's stance on confirming SCOTUS judges. Trump jokes about Bemidji Minnesota having a large refugee population.

The Majority Report's retrospective of Michael Brooks' career continues with a 2018 interview with Zero Books' Douglas Lain (@DougLain). In the wake of Bari Weiss' breathless NYT profile, Michael and Doug tackle the much discussed and hotly debated “Intellectual Dark Web,” the internet’s latest cast of “renegades” shaking things up in the American sociopolitical discourse. While they claim to promote open debate and discourse, it turns out the IDW is open to any idea besides the idea that they might be racist or sexist.

Vietnam War leaker Daniel Ellsberg warns against extraditing Julian Assange.

On the fun half: Trump-appointed FBI director Christopher Wray testifies that "Antifa" is not a real group, the most dangerous terrorists are white nationalists, and Russia is trying to undermine the election. Military considered using "heat ray" on DC protesters. Charlie Kirk freaks out about what the left will do to the right if Trump loses. A breakdown of the insufficient reforms offered up by the Louisville PD as part of the $12 million Breonna Taylor settlement. US Rep. Jodey Arrington (R-TX) rails against a bill condemning anti-Asian rhetoric around Covid-19: "This is dividing our country!" Plus, your calls and IMs.

Donald Trump's private thoughts on Covid from April 13 are a bit of a contrast from his public statment on April 17.

Then Sam is joined by historian Thomas Frank to discuss his new book, "The People, No: A Brief History of Anti-Populism." What is the American history of populism? Is it an attitude, a policy set, a campaign style?

And on the fun half:

Trump, Roger Stone, and Mark Levin really flexing election-stealing muscles. Steve Doocy valiantly defends press freedom. Trump thinks the forest fires may start cooling. Joe Biden calls Trump a climate arsonist, and Jared Kushner has purged the admin of "confident idiots."

Sam is joined by Martha S. Jones (@marthasjones_), Professor of History at Johns Hopkins University, to discuss her new book, 'Vanguard: How Black Women Broke Barriers, Won the Vote, and Insisted on Equality for All.'

On today's show: Brian Kilmeade and Tom Cotton defend Trump's handling of Covid: "What do you expect the president, who's spent 50 years in business, to know about this pandemic that's the first thing like it we've seen since 1918?”

Sam is joined by Martha S. Jones (@marthasjones_), Professor of History at Johns Hopkins University, to discuss her new book, 'Vanguard: How Black Women Broke Barriers, Won the Vote, and Insisted on Equality for All.' While most people think that all women got the right to vote with the passage of the 19th amendment in 1920, this is not true; most black women were effectively barred from voting until many decades later. In this book, Jones traces the work of activists including Sojourner Truth, Jarena Lee, Fannie Lou Hamer, and more, to show how black women fought both racism and sexism to advocate for their rights at the ballot box and beyond.

On the fun half: Trump with Judge Jeanine on Saturday, on federal forces' killing of a purported antifa sympathizer who allegedly killed someone in Portland: "This guy was a violent criminal...there has to be retribution." Trump further expounds on the killing at rally: "We sent in the US marshals, it was taken care of in 15 minutes." Trump speculates re: Biden’s use of performances-enhancing drugs. Jake Tapper and Peter Navarro, White House Trade Advisor, argue about Trump’s public/private statements about Covid in February. Bernstein scolds Sam for criticizing Woodward at staged reading of "All the President’s Men." Minot, ND Councilwoman Carrie Evans goes off on a homophobe at council meeting over displaying the rainbow flag. Joe Rogan whines about Nomiki saying Dave Rubin’s clip about human cloning is dumb, should be de-platformed. On Fox and Friends, TX Governor Abbott tells Steve Doocy how the state can fight local police defunding efforts. FBI Portland denies rumors that extremists are starting the fires. Jimmy Dore claims people who believe in Russiagate are as gullible and stupid as the Qanon people. Plus, your calls and IMs!

Sheriff of Spokane, WA whines about media's pro-Antifa bias, Spongebob memes in 45 minute press conference.

Sam and the MR Crew break down the week's biggest headlines including November's general election, the next stage of COVID, and Trump's personal DOJ.

On today's show: Big boats sink small boats in Texas Trump boat parade. Trump says he will return "patriotic education" to nation's schools, says they'll take away your great heroes. Thom Tillis issues apology statement after a staffer is caught on tape saying what Republicans actually believe on healthcare. Study: increased 2018 Dem turnout due to hatred of Trump, concern over healthcare. March 19: Trump says he's downplaying Covid because he doesn't want to create a "panic" (in the markets). Michael Cohen says he thinks if Trump loses, he will resign and have Pence pardon him.

On the fun half: Fox and Friends concern troll about voting twice in Georgia and the "red mirage" (where one candidate appears to win on Election Day, but another wins after all votes are tallied). Fox and Friends celebrate Norwegian right wing nationalist nominating Trump to be considered for Noble Peace Prize (again). DoJ replaces Trump’s personal legal team to defend against defamation suit from woman who says he raped her at Macy’s. Sean Hannity and Dave Rubin can't get on the same page about their bit about keyboard warriors in their moms' basements. Trump says he's the greatest environmentalist president since TR, and if he does another bill he'll be better than TR.

Sam hosts author, radio host, and Spy Magazine founder Kurt Andersen to discuss his latest book Evil Geniuses: The Unmaking of America: A Recent History and how the last 50 years have turned the clock back on economic equality and progress in America.

Andersen and Sam begin their conversation discussing the power of nostalgia and how it took such a hold in American culture after the 60s counterrevolution and civil rights movement. The two continue their conversation discussing the Lewis Powell memo and how corporate leaders wanted to change public sentiment towards corporate capitalism. Sam also explains his appreciation of Andersen's novel Turn of the Century and Andersen shares how his political attitudes changed during that period at the beginning of the 21st century. Andersen and Sam conclude the conversation as to what lies ahead for younger generations of Americans and how does Joe Biden help usher in change, maybe.

And in the Fun Half: Trump is mad at John McCain and the military-industrial complex he empowers, Louis DeJoy is in hot water over campaign finance laws, updates from a teacher at the frontlines of the new Covid frontlines,

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.

On today's show: Ed Markey talks justice in victory speech. Kennedy v. Markey: What's the thing your wife likes least about you? Kennedy dithers about his feet, Markey talks about sports in Massachusetts.

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.

On the fun half: Greg Gutfeld doesn't see why we need thousands of teachers teaching the same lessons to kids, suggests Peloton for education. Asked to explain thug plane plot, Trump says he'll put reporter in touch with guy who told him the story...turns out it came from the Facebook page of Russ Thor Wade of Patriot Prayer. Asked about the importance of 2020 turnout and winning popular vote, Trump says he won popular vote in 2016. Trump wants a performance enhancing drug test for him and Biden before debate. Kilmeade says there are protestors with earpieces and weapons all over the country, says it's organized. Steve Doocy is just asking the questions if BLM is organized and being funded by dark money. Kilmeade asks why government can't break Antifa like al Qaeda or Hezbollah. Plus, your calls and IMs!

Sam hosts author and historian Rick Perlstein to discuss his latest book, Reaganland: America's Right Turn 1976-1980, the dramatic conclusion of how conservatism took control of American political power. Sam and Rick begin their conversation discussing the role of Pat Caddell and how the Democratic party moved right starting during the Carter administration. Perlstein lays out the role power of the new evangelist political movement that at first helped Jimmy Carter but because the Democratic president did not embrace a fundamentalist policy program, turned to the open embrace of Reagan and the conservative movement. Shifting gears, Perlstein explains how California proposition 13, which decreased property taxes by assessing values at their 1976 value and restricted annual increases of assessed value to an inflation factor, helped destroy state tax bases and funding to public school systems, but helped usher in tax-cutting and "small government" as the primary policy set of Reagan conservatives. Sam and Rick conclude their conversation considering how democratic politicians failed to offer an alternative to small government conservatism leading to the Reagan era. 

And in the Fun Half: Trump telegraphs his racist suburban voter appeals with Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson hosts Kyle Rittenhouse's lawyer, conservative media continues to throw things against Biden's campaign, why defeating Trump is the best way to bring back libertarian callers, the efficacy of taking on the IDW grifters, the potential teacher strikes, plus your calls and IMs!

Sam and the MR crew break down the top stories of the past week including protests in Kenosha and Portland as well as the RNC as we hurdle into the homestretch of the 2020 presidential election.

On today's show: Mark Meadows says Trump's America is peaceful. New Biden ad shows empty stadiums: "Trump put America on the sidelines...let's get back in the game."

On the fun half: Pelosi says releasing Trump's tax return will be a 2021 priority and Richard Neal is the man to do it. Scalise explains why he posted edited Ady Barkan video, says passively it shouldn't have been edited but Biden wants to divert money from police anyway. Ron Johnson refuses to condemn Rittenhouse shooting during Kenosha protests. NYT media reporter Kevin Roose says Facebook is like a parallel news universe. Ben Shapiro says Democratic mayors let people burn their cities, without calling in National Guard vigilantes defending property take hold. Charlie Kirk says decent people rise up when protestors take over, says he's not advocating for vigilantism, but simply asking how do you get to vigilantism. A plug for The Valley Labor Report (@LaborReporters), a pro-labor radio show out of Huntsville, AL. Plus, your calls and IMs!

On today's show: In response to the reality there is no widespread voter fraud, Mark Meadows says there's no proof that there isn't widespread voter fraud.

Sam hosts journalist Jean Guerrero to discuss her new book Hatemonger: Stephen Miller, Donald Trump, and the White Nationalist Agenda on how Stephen Miller thrived in the Trump administration and successfully implemented a campaign of terror against immigrants in America. Stephen Miller is one of the most influential advisors in the Trump White House, crafting Trump's cruelest immigration policies and managing to stay in his position where many of his colleagues have not. Geurrero traces Miller's development, from his discovery of white nationalism as a lonely teen, to his mentorship by figures like Larry Elder and David Horowitz, to his ongoing efforts to broaden and intensify the persecution of immigrants.

Lincoln Project posts cute tweet about privatizing the USPS. Lincoln Project ad featuring David Cross standup bit about voting for Trump.

On the fun half: Mark Meadows says sorting machines will not be taken down, blames Obama for USPS losses. Asked about Covid relief negotiations, Trump says he won't meet Pelosi and Schumer: "The country is doing very well right now." Trump on his reelection chances, says boaters and silent majority will lift him to victory. NYPD union gives first presidential endorsement to Donald Trump.

David Dayen (@ddayen), Executive Editor of The American Prospect, joins Sam to discuss last week's Big Tech antitrust hearings in the House and what a real investigation could do.

Sam hosts historian Gerald Horne to discuss his new book The Dawning of the Apocalypse: The Roots of Slavery, White Supremacy, Settler Colonialism, and Capitalism in the Long Sixteenth Century. 

Sam and Professor Horne begin their conversation exploring Horne's historiographic path, specifically how he has worked his way backward through American history to understand its racism and quest for power. Horne explains the relation between religious authority and how struggles between sects of Christianity forged a shared pan-European identity in hopes of dominating the New World and defeating Spanish catholic rule. Professor Horne examines the roots of the capitalist system in the New World, including the slave labor used to produce commodities like sugar plantations in the Caribbean. Sam and Professor Horne conclude their conversation examining how European leaders improvised a vision of pan-Europeanism and racial superiority and how it relates to today's white supremacist groups and antiracist efforts from the grassroots. 

And in the Fun Half: Cole James Cash remembers Michael Brooks and describes what it's like to work in a Covid isolation hotel, Donald Trump wants a taste of the TikTok sale, Trump says mail in voting is ok now, the right fails to malign John Lewis, Ben Shapiro sings Les Mis, plus your calls and IMs!

Sam hosts journalist and Type Media fellow Sarah Posner to discuss her new book Unholy: Why White Evangelicals Worship at the Altar of Donald Trump. Posner and Sam dive deep into the network and culture of Evangelical Christians that extends way beyond the pulpit in 2020, including its robust media ecosystem, conferences, newsletters, and art. From an outsider's perspective, it seems that Donald Trump is our least religious president ever. However, Posner describes the story of Trump's relationship to televangelists, notably Paula White, whose prosperity gospel preaching style resonated with Trump. But how did the majority of evangelical churches and leaders come to endorse and embrace the Trump campaign? Posner says the evangelical grassroots loved Trump and mobilized behind his campaign, after which the church leadership fell in line. Sam and Posner breakdown why the evangelical base loved Trump so much so early on. The base saw Trump as a wrecking ball that could demolish the liberal state they believed to be a threat to their religious liberty. Sam and Posner conclude their conversation considering the religious right's role in the judiciary and the religious leaders in Trump's cabinet, including Mike Pence, Mike Pompeo, and Bill Barr. 

And in the Fun Half: how the progressive left will challenge the center, Trump's behind in polls but he has the beautiful boaters, a heartbreaking story from Dallas family that denied covid's existence, Dave Rubin continues to sink, plus your calls and IMs!

The Majority Report returns this week as Sam hosts journalist and author Colin Woodard (@woodardcolin) to discuss his new book, Union: The Struggle to Forge the Story of United States Nationhoodon how 19th-century intellectuals forged the myth of national unity.

On today's show: Steve Mnuchin says WH won't use taxpayer money to let people stay home. Mnuchin says it wouldn't be fair to pay people to stay home while others have to work.

Journalist and author Colin Woodard (@woodardcolin) joins Sam to discuss his new book, Union: The Struggle to Forge the Story of United States Nationhoodon how 19th-century intellectuals forged the myth of national unity. What "the United States" means to its citizens has never been a given, inspiring various actors to try to impose their version of a unifying national myth onto this vast and diverse nation-state. Woodard tracks these competing visions, including that favored by 19th century historian George Bancroft, which posited the US as a project blessed by God to spread "freedom" across the continent, as well as the explicitly ethno-nationalist vision favored by people like Woodrow Wilson in the KKK era.

On the fun half: Ted Cruz says Democrats only want to extend unemployment benefits to beat Trump in November. Jake Tapper asks why Trump hasn't used Defense Production Act to improve testing turnaround, Giroir says "it's not magic.” Jesse Watters has nice things to say about Qanon during interview about tech censorship with Eric Trump. Ben Shapiro says empathy is bad for politics.

Sam hosts David Dayen (@ddayen), Executive Editor at the American Prospect, to discuss his new book Monopolized: Life in the Age of Corporate Power, which details how a small collection of corporations have come to dominate every aspect of our lives.

On today's show: Asked about "cancel culture," NDAA and confederate named bases, Trump explains he won't budge on base names.

David Dayen (@ddayen), Executive Editor at the American Prospect, joins Sam to discuss his new book Monopolized: Life in the Age of Corporate Power. From the airlines we fly on, to the internet companies we use, to the banks that control our money, much of American life is now dominated by a handful of large corporations. Dayen examines how things progressed to this point, and makes an argument for the resurrection of antitrust legislation as an effective way of dealing with corporate monopolies.

On the fun half: Trump says Biden/Sanders want to defund the police, Wallace in studio after interview says Biden wants to increase police funding. New Fox News poll: Trump says he's not losing, polls are fake, says he's winning in swing states, says Biden can't put 2 sentences together. Ben Shapiro says Trump's Covid policy has been good, media to blame for its focus on his rhetoric. Surgeon General on Fox & Friends imploring Americans to wear a mask, won't call for a federal mandate. MS Governor struggles to defend lack of statewide mask mandate: ‘it’s complicated.’ Harpers letter drafter says signers voted against Glenn Greenwald signing the Harpers letter. Plus, your calls and IMs.

Sam hosts Princeton historian Julian Zelizer to discuss his new book, Burning Down the House: Newt Gingrich, the Fall of a Speaker, and the Rise of the New Republican Party. 

Zelizer and Sam begin their conversation with Newt's unconventional upbringing, including his marriage to his high school math teacher. Plus, his early entry into elected office and his pragmatic politics morphed into a career centered on partisan power. Zelizer explains how Gingrich set out to reshape and take back the House through anti-establishment rhetoric against the Democrats in the House for the first time in 42 years. Sam and Zelizer consider the effectiveness of running against "corruption" in Washington and the example of Speaker of the House Jim Wright. The two compare and contrast the GOP's unity and the Democratic party's disconnect and how it impacts each party's ability to legislate. And finally, Zelizer and Sam conclude their conversation investigating whether or not the parties have moved on from the Gingrich era of political power. 

And in the Fun Half: Trump demands schools reopen, Stephen J Gould recommended reading, Brian Kilmeade doesn't understand how Fox has abetted the COVID crisis, Tucker Carlson says masks don't prevent the virus's spread in July 2020, Tucker Carlson's white supremacist head writer, runoffs in Texas, why Elizabeth Warren won't deliver the youth vote for Biden, Trump saved the US oil industry, plus your calls and IMs!

Stephanie Kelton (@StephanieKelton) joins Sam to discuss her new book, "The Deficit Myth: Modern Monetary Theory and the Birth of the People's Economy." To those who favor a robust welfare state bolstered by generous federal spending, "how are you going to pay for it?" is an all-too-familiar rejoinder. But what if that question were irrelevant? In her latest work on modern monetary theory, or MMT, Kelton lays out the case for a new understanding of money and taxes that could free up the federal government to disregard the deficit in service of the public good.

Frank Smyth joins Sam to discuss his new book, "The NRA: The Unauthorized History." The NRA is one of the three most powerful lobbying groups in Washington, DC, consistently opposing restrictions on gun ownership and enjoying a mutually beneficial relationship with Trump and the GOP. But it has not always been this way. In this book, Smyth traces the history of the organization, from its surprising roots in post-Civil War New York City, to the "Cincinnati Revolt” of 1977 that changed its political direction, to the rabidly reactionary force it is today.

Greg Mitchell joins Sam to discuss his new book, The Beginning or the End: How Hollywood―and America―Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. In 1945, multiple Hollywood studios set out to make films about the advent of the atomic bomb — including one written by Ayn Rand. In this book, Mitchell tells the story of how President Truman and the military successfully pressured Hollywood to drain these films of all critique, revealing how the government molded culture into propaganda in postwar America.

And for members: Sam talks with late journalist Michael Hastings on Stanley McCrystal.

How Rising Inequality Distorts the Global Economy and Threatens International Peace.

Sam hosts historian Federico Finchelstein (@FinchelsteinF) to discuss his new book, A Brief History of Fascist Lies, why fascists regard obvious and often hateful lies as truth, and why so many of their followers have believed the falsehoods.

On today's show: Laura Ingraham says Biden will raise statues of Colin Kaepernick and Stacey Abrams.

Sam hosts historian Federico Finchelstein (@FinchelsteinF) to discuss his new book, A Brief History of Fascist Lies, why fascists regard obvious and often hateful lies as truth, and why so many of their followers have believed the falsehoods. The differences between fascists' lies and lies told by normal politicians. What is "populism" and do left- and right-wing populism have anything in common? Is Bernie Sanders actually a left-wing populist? The substitution of a charismatic leader for "the people," and who "the people" are to figures like Trump and Bolsonaro. The connections between fascism and capitalism.

On the fun half: Chris James pranks conservative radio show as "Steve," an angry cop from Idaho. TUESDAY: Fauci opening statement, fears sharp rise in Covid infections. Texas Lt. Gov Dan Patrick says he won't listen to Fauci and his science, doesn't need him anymore. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says he's not slowing state's reopening, says it's not the reopening that's causing the surge, it's all the activities people have done. Tucker says GOP is the only institution "open to the rest of us" who want to live peacefully. Tucker says our current elected officials abandoned the middle class, your children's generation is worse off than you. Brian Kilmeade says withdrawing from Afghanistan would not be an "apt reward" for 19 years of war. Mitch McConnell warns Democrats about changing legislative fillibuster rule. Brian Kilmeade says NYers "gonna get a taste" with a (not really all that) reduced police force. Who will be Biden’s VP pick?

Sam hosts Elie Mystal, justice correspondent at the Nation magazine, to discuss this week's SCOTUS rulings on abortion TRAP laws, executive authority over the CFPB, USAID funding, and the First Amendment, and religious schools receiving taxpayer dollars.

Mystal says the goal of Roberts is to bend the law as much as possible to the GOP's agenda. The two conclude their conversation assessing the possibility of court-packing under a Democratic White House and conservatives justices' efforts to deescalate calls for court-packing.

And in the Fun Half: Rand Paul wants Fauci to be more optimistic about COVID response, Cuomo's Mt.

In this book, Goodman tracks the history of anti-immigrant politics and deportations in the US, from the anti-Chinese laws of the 1920s, to the treatment of Mexican migrants as guest-workers to be exploited but never accepted, to the rise of exclusionary policies targeting Mexicans via a system of formal deportations, “voluntary” departures, and self-deportations. The goal: to blame "the other" for economic problems and exert discipline over migrant labor.

Sam hosts Garrett Felber, professor of history at the University of Mississippi, to discuss his new book, Those Who Know Don't Say: The Nation of Islam, the Black Freedom Movement, and the Carceral State. Sam and Felber discuss the organizing tactics used by black nationalists from within the carceral state and the Nation of Islam. Felber's book spotlights the local organizers on the ground and how such efforts differed from the national politics of black civil rights. Sam and Felber compare and contrast the 1960s civil rights movement to contemporary BLM actions, the multiracial composition of today's protests, and self-reporting and recording of police behavior. The two conclude their conversation assessing the long fight against "police reform."

On today's show: AOC's closing campaign ad pitch for reelection: "A better world is possible."

NY-14 congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) joins Sam to discuss her June 23rd primary and what to expect from the progressive caucus before the next round of Covid-19 relief. Why the finance industry is donating to AOC's opponent, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, the former CNBC anchor who lived in Trump tower before she carpet-bagged her way to Queens. The balance between local and national politics and the importance of mutual aid. The reasoning behind AOC's votes on the CARES and HEROES acts. Why the progressive caucus isn't always so progressive.

Historian Gerald Horne joins Sam to discuss the history of Juneteenth in the age of Trump. The various steps that led to Texas finally abolishing slavery on June 19, 1865. The messy process of actually getting rid of unpaid labor. How revisionists have changed this history to fit a liberal narrative. How Juneteenth could be adopted as a national holiday and what it might look like.

Josh from Chicago plugs the DSA slate running in NYC; check out socialists.nyc to learn about the candidates. Trump scrolls through phone during small-business roundtable. Donald Trump Jr. tries to get father's approval in special Father's Day interview. Don Jr. begs for father's approval of his quarantine beard, Trump says he doesn't like it. Dinesh D'Souza says Antifa is the product of leftist academics, says the left hates Lincoln because he unmasked Democrats during Civil War era (taxes = slavery). Tucker says Democrats are using BLM protests to replace current system w/ new system that ends "equality" (suggesting that white people will be punished for being white). MAY 2020: Dave Rubin says leftist minds go into "protection mode" when their friends leave the left. Daily Wire hosts say it's time for Cold War round two, need to stop the growing leftist movement in USA.

Sam hosts environmental lawyer Barbara Freese to discuss her new book, Industrial-Strength Denial:
Eight Stories of Corporations Defending the Indefensible, from the Slave Trade to Climate Change. Sam and Freese discuss how the psychology of corporate denial has remained the same over centuries. Freese contends that when confronted with the harm they cause—whether to individuals or to the environment—corporations deny the evidence, blame their victims, complain of witch-hunts, attack their critics, and rationalize their destructive behavior. Sam and Freese also delve into how society fights back against corporate lies using tools of democracy like boycotts, government intervention, and media scrutiny.

And in the Fun Half: when the White House lies about "flattening the curve," Larry Kudlow says get used to Covid, the importance of the NY16 and Kentucky senate primary, Greg Gutfeld's Steven Crowder DMs, plus your phone calls and IMs!

How Latino support for Reagan fit in with the larger trend of the "Reagan Democrat." How growing nativism in the Republican Party caused Hispanic Republicans to dig in and defend the party. How Hispanic Republicans went from supporting the candidate in spite of the party, to supporting the party in spite of the candidate.

On today's show: Brian Kilmeade cannot believe we're talking about defunding the cops. Ainsley fearmongers about crime rising if people can no longer call 911 in NYC.

Brooklyn College professor Alex Vitale (@avitale) joins Sam to discuss law enforcement reform, police abolition, and his book The End of PolicingThe history of policing as social control tied to capitalist exploitation. How the recent expansion of the police in the US was tied to austerity and the resulting social problems. Homelessness, youth gangs, mental health, and other issues the police should not be used to manage. Abolition as a political framework and how shrinking police budgets and reinvesting the funds fits into it. The Minneapolis PD as perfect disproving ground for Obama's reform platform. Vitale's take on the reform package proposed by House Democrats.

On the fun half:  Eliot Engel on AOC endorsing Jamal Bowman: she shouldn't anoint whomever she wants. Video of Engel trying to speak at rally. Asked if he would defund the police, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey says no, faces brutal walk of shame. Bill Barr hedges against police reform, says DOJ only investigates police depts after states, says officials need to look at all evidence. Bill Barr relitigates what happened with peaceful protest in Lafayette Sq. on Monday. Buffalo PD applaud their colleagues leaving the courthouse after they're charged with felony assault of 75 year old man. Larry Kudlow is getting people excited about the American comeback. Plus, your calls and IMs!

Sam hosts Shahid Buttar (@shahidforchange), the democratic socialist candidate challenging Nancy Pelosi in CA-12 this fall.

On today's show: Trump talks about how everyone should get “fair treatment” from law enforcement, brags about how he saved the economy.

Shahid Buttar (@shahidforchange) joins us to discuss his Congressional run and help break down the news. Why Shahid is running against Nancy Pelosi and how she is complicit in the ongoing crimes of the Trump administration. The ripple effect it could have if Shahid wins. Buffalo PD shove 75 year old man, knock him unconscious, he starts bleeding from his ears. How the current uprising is a synthesis of prior movements like Occupy and BLM. How the CIA has driven the militarization of the police.

THURSDAY: Cuomo says he doesn't know of any baton incident with peaceful protesters. Split screen comparison between Cuomo baton response and NYPD brutality. Cops tackle a man being interviewed by the media. Bill Barr says Antifa is behind violence at otherwise peaceful rallies. Ben Shapiro says institutional racism is a conspiracy theory. Former CIA official says vigilante justice will take over because Antifa backed by DSA & Bernie bros are leading protests.

Sam reviews Trump's call state governors in the show's free half, where the president demanded they "dominate" protestors and jail those who organized the protests. He also investigates Trump's bible photo-op outside St. Johns Church and Trump's use of the military to disperse peaceful protestors. The free half wraps up with clips from yesterday's protests in Seattle and what happened with the All Lives Matter bowhunter in Salt Lake City.

And in the Fun Half: Tucker Carlson says the Jews (Jared Kushner) are screwing up Trump's response, Brian Kilmeade says CIA needs to commence domestic interference to stop protestors, Sam and Nomiki speculate on how this situation could escalate, Trump has steeped America in his ideology, cops are resigning from the force, other cops look like they're planting bricks, and some are getting cursed out, today's primary contests, police brutalization against Native Americans, the failure of democratic leadership, plus your calls and IMs!

Sam hosts Howard Bryant (@hbryant42), ESPN writer and author of Full Dissidence: Notes from an Uneven Playing Field, and the New Republic's Alex Pareene (@pareene) to discuss the week's top stories and the on-going protests and unrest in Minneapolis.

On today's show: Hennepin County DA says there's evidence that prevents DA from charging cops.

Howard Bryant (@hbryant42), ESPN writer and author of Full Dissidence: Notes from an Uneven Playing Field, joins Sam to discuss the protests in Minneapolis and elsewhere, police violence, and the unequal protection provided by police to black and white citizens.

Alex Pareene (@pareene) of the New Republic joins Sam to discuss the punitive policies that led to widespread police violence. Negative shout out to Amy Klobuchar, who declined to prosecute the cop who killed George Floyd for previous offenses. CNN reporter and crew arrested in Minneapolis. Footage from Autozone in Minneapolis arouses suspicion that the man who set the fire was an agent provocateur. Tucker strawmans protest: if racism is a national emergency, what's not acceptable? Says racism in policing is not real because cops kill more white people.

On the fun half: Sean Hannity says actions in Minneapolis are disrespectful to George Floyd's family, says protests fuel more hate. Rush Limbaugh says Trump's conspiracy theories are "clever...people don't get the subtlety of Trump." Trump says vote by mail is ripe for fraud, kids running around raiding mailboxes, harvesting ballots. A DSA member reports on the nurses' rally in Tampa, FL; call HCA Healthcare at 615 344 9551 to demand PPE for nurses. Plus, your calls!
