The Majority Report with Sam Seder (general)

Sam hosts MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff (@jacobsoboroff) to discuss his new book Separated: Inside an American Tragedy, which details the reporter's first hand account of the migrant family separation crisis at the US southern border.

On today's show: Asked if he thinks he's the underdog, Trump says he's not, he's got boaters and bikers all over America.

MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff (@jacobsoboroff) joins Sam to discuss his new book Separated: Inside an American Tragedy, which details the reporter's first hand account of the migrant family separation crisis at the US southern border. How family separation worked during the Obama administration and how it intensified under Trump. The El Paso pilot program. The idea of using family separation as a "deterrent" (punishment) for undocumented immigrants pioneered by Stephen Miller and his ilk. The constitutional safeguards that officials like Kirstjen Nielsen were made aware of, but ultimately pushed past.

On the fun half: Mike Pence says White House doesn't want CDC guidelines to prevent schools from reopening. Asked about LA schools, Trump says get new officials & it's a balancing act, it's also politics. Asked about testing delays, Trump says testing is working too much. Rush Limbaugh suggests Americans adapt to Covid like the Donner party adapted to cannibalism. Real America Fox News talks about NYT, Franken, Hollywood and Bari Weiss. Fox & Friends teases new Fox Nation moms episode about SOCIALISM! 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.

For members,  the 11/13/12 inteview with Michael Hastings on The Real David Petraeus Scandals.

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.

Michael Pettis (@michaelxpettis), professor of finance at Peking University’s Guanghua School of Management and senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, joins Sam to discuss his new book, Trade Wars Are Class Wars:
How Rising Inequality Distorts the Global Economy and Threatens International Peace. While "trade wars" are often thought of as countries competing against one another to protect their workers' interests, they are largely conducted on behalf of elites. In this book, Pettis examines how globalization impacts inequality and spurs international conflict, as well as what we can do about it.
