The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Sam hosts writer and political analyst Jared Yates Sexton to discuss his new book, American Rule: How a Nation Conquered the World But Failed Its People, and why the foundational myths of American Exceptionalism have such a hold on the populace. Sam and Jared explore the stories Americans told themselves throughout the country's history, from how the process behind writing the Constitution to how the "Mound Builders" stories helped justify indigenous Americans' slaughter. The two consider how these stories have shaped the populace's thinking and why it's essential to reject politics as a spectacle. 

And in the Fun Half: will Biden appointments carry on the Obama legacy, Ron DeSantis sends authorities to take laptops and phones of a former Florida DOH official and whistleblower, armed protestors outside the Michigan Secretary of State's house, Matt Walsh is tired of real history and says it's racist, trying to understand the mRNA SARs-CoV2 vaccine, Sam explains why you should've had your OMB picks slated in September, plus your IMs!

And then Rachel Cohen (@rmc031) and Marcia Brown (@Marcia_Brown9) from the American Prospect & the Intercept join to discuss their piece "How to Counteract the Court," on how Congress can counteract the courts through statuary interpretation.

Then Marcia Brown and Rachel Cohen of the American Prospect and the Intercept explain why the progressive left should organize around statutory rulings which are distinct from a constitutional ruling and would allow a workaround the 6-3 conservative Supreme Court.

And in the Fun Half: messaging climate change to the uninformed, what a Neera Tanden appointment means, Lou Dobbs and Hannity want a taste of the Trump PAC money, Hannity wants pardons for everyone, Sidney Powell: child prodigy lawyer, Dominion is a HAL 9000 scenario, Rudy gets pranked, and your calls and IMs.

Sam and Emma explain why it's important to not travel this Thanksgiving and why our hospitals are on the brink.

Sam hosts Will Bunch (@Will_Bunch), columnist at the Philadelphia Inquirer, to discuss his recent piece "How Trump became all of America’s Frank Rizzo," and the potential of a perpetual Trump candidacy. As Philly residents know, Frank Rizzo was a notoriously racist and authoritarian police commissioner who served two terms as mayor in the 1970s and became a permanent avatar of white aggrievement politics. Bunch explains how Trump and Rizzo are similar and looks to the past for a blueprint of where Trump may go from here.

On the fun half: Michigan House speaker explains why he met with Trump and what might happen to election certification. Public Citizen president explains how much public funding helped create the Moderna & Pfizer corona virus vaccines. Texas governor says it's un-American for Oregon to "legalize" heroin and cocaine but not have turkey on Thanksgiving. Dave Rubin comes out as no longer liberal, has no problem with conservative label, calls himself a "new conservative." Dave Rubin says if Powell and Giuliani are making this up they're insane, but he doesn't think that's the case.

On today's show: GOP State Rep J. Todd Smith confuses epidemiologist with epistemologist.

Sam hosts author Scott Anderson to talk about his new book, "The Quiet Americans: Four CIA Spies at the Dawn of the Cold War — A Tragedy In Three Acts." In this book, Anderson chronicles the exploits of the CIA’s four original spies: Michael Burke, Frank Wisner, Peter Sichel and Edward Lansdale, from their glamorous double lives to their operations to contain the spread of communism. In many cases, he believes, the CIA went too far in tampering with other countries' governments and permanently damaged America's moral standing.

On today's show: Trump says vaccine will be available to all Americans in spring, besides NY because Cuomo is a bad politician.

Sam hosts Daniel Nichanian (@Taniel) of "The Appeal: Political Report" to discuss how Democrats fared in under-reported local races. Sheriff's elections where immigrant justice was on the ballot and the successes of anti-ICE Dems. Successful ballot measures to decriminalize marijuana, and even possession of other drugs.

On the fun half: Paul Reickhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) joins Sam to debate how the Democrats should address their 2020 electoral failures in the coming election cycle. Should the Democrats let progressives like AOC run on popular programs and lead the party, or woo "moderates" like himself with a program of fiscal discipline?

Trump campaign lawyer says it's incredible how much information she has to prove election was rigged, she just can't share any of it on TV. Plus, your calls and IMs!

Sam breaks down election week with Ben Dixon of the Benjamin Dixon Show and looks forward to what's next for Trump, Biden, and the Democrats. Sam and Ben discuss the new vote count in Georgia as Biden surpassed Trump overnight and each Senate race in the peach state moved to a runoff. Ben and Sam assess how Georgia turned blue for the first time since Clinton and how on the ground organizing drove massive turnout for Democrats. The two also look to Abigail Spanberger's comments about progressive Democrats and why institutional Democrats scapegoat progressives whenever things don't go according to plan. Ben also points out the GOP's new coalition of non-white voters as the product of celebrity endorsements and micro-targeted ad campaigns.

Sam and the crew break down last night's returns and the battleground states still tabulating.

When will the Democratic Party learn that it's bad politics to compromise with the Republican death cult? Potential 2022 Senate pick-ups for progressives. Drug decriminalization, campaign finance reform, $15 min wage in Florida, and other good ballot measures that succeeded. Are the Dems afraid of being in power? Jamie defines "depoliticization" and makes the case for its explanatory power.

Wisconsin State Legislature will impact voting leading up to next Tuesday and the election counting after that.

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.

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!

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.

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!

Sam hosts Shahid Buttar (@ShahidForChange), candidate for CA-12 challenging Nancy Pelosi, to discuss his campaign, Pelosi's leadership failures, California's wildfires, and the week's most important headlines.

On today's show: Tucker Carlson says it's Lindsey Graham's fault that Trump talked to Bob Woodward.

Shahid Buttar (@ShahidForChange) joins Sam to discuss his campaign and break down the news. Shahid addresses the allegations against him. APRIL 26: Pelosi tells those critical of lack of state/local funds in CARES ACT "calm down." AUGUST: Nancy Pelosi says she's praying new stimulus negotiations will resume soon. How Pelosi's leadership failures are connected to her corporate donors. How the Democrats' malfeasance fuels right-wing populism. Chris Coons' connection to the nursing home industry.

On the fun half: At rally, Trump says Biden will destroy social security and protections for pre-existing conditions. Ben Shapiro says Trump wasn't downplaying Covid anymore than Cuomo, "everyone was figuring this out at same time." Bret Baier shuts down Trump campaign spokesperson’s lies about Woodward tapes. Tucker says America is not white supremacist country because if it was liberals would not encourage immigration, since that would essentially be premeditated murder. Tucker's ahistorical lessons: says 1908 is like 2020, says Springfield race riot is like 2020. TV broadcast seems to show chiefs fans booing players' sign of unity before game.

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. Fauci says it's more realistic to expect a vaccine by end of 2020 but not by November. Mark Zuckerberg explains that Facebook is not dominated by right-wing media, says it's a space where people can "use their voice." Facebook's top 10 performing posts past 24 hours: Trump, Hannity, etc. Kevin Roose tweet about top performing post on FB, a Qanon story about "save the children" child trafficking conspiracy.

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,

Trump's request that people vote twice: what will that mean for the results? Will there be another Brooks Brothers riot, alt-right edition?

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.

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.

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.

Sam and crew break down the biggest stories of the week, including GOP COVID relief failures,  Joe Biden's veepstakes, and what to expect at the upcoming conventions. Sam and crew look into the GOP's strategy to blame Pelosi and the Democrats for the failure to pass relief measures for working Americans. Meanwhile, in New York, Andrew Cuomo gets epistemological when asked if he would be open to an independent investigation into the huge number of nursing home deaths during the COVID outbreak. Sam takes some phone calls before the Fun Half, including John from San Antonio's VP prediction.

And in the Fun Half: Ben Shapiro reads Cardi B lyrics and shares about his unfulfilling sex life, Donald Trump explains how Joe Biden can hurt God, callers share their struggles to access relief aid from states across the country, David Packman is up to something with his YouTube subscribers, and Sam and Matt explain Bret Weinstein's failures in reason--plus your calls and IMs!

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. 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!
