Sam and Bevins discuss US involvement in suppressing the Indonesian left, including bombings and training Indonesian military commanders at Ft. Leavenworth, culminating in the US-backed Suharto's takeover of the Indonesian government, which killed 1 million innocent people. Bevins explains how the Jakarta method helped lay the groundwork for Operation Condor and the state terror that took place in Central and South America in the 70s and 80s.

Brooklyn College professor Alex Vitale (@avitale) joins Sam to discuss law enforcement reform, police abolition, and his book The End of Policing(Free ebook version available now from Verso books!)

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.

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.

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.

Michael Brooks hosts Professor Daniel Bessner (@dbessner) to discuss what's happening in Minnesota as protestors square off with authorities in the wake of George Floyd's killing. Also: the growing gig economy in academia.

On today's show: Side by side comparison of George Floyd protests & Michigan stay-at-home protest. Woman throws tear gas canister back at the cops.

Professor Daniel Bessner (@dbessner) joins Michael to discuss what's happening in Minnesota as protestors square off with authorities in the wake of George Floyd's killing. Why don't we see more of these kinds of insurrections in America? The Gilded Age and the history of political violence. Tucker Carlson says Minneapolis protests (he calls it rioting) are unacceptable, not about what happened to George Floyd. The monopoly on "legitimate" use of violence as defining characteristic of the state. The history of policing in the US and how early police forces brought colonial tactics home. Also: How the gig economy is impacting higher education.

On the fun half: Unemployment hits 40 million. Edward Luce piece in FT shows how Trump's Covid negligence was an effort not to spook the markets. PA State Rep. Brian Sims curses out GOP PA House members who did not disclose Covid diagnoses. Trump takes steps to sell more weapons to Saudi Arabia. Judge Napolitano asks "why have [these cops] not been charged?" on Fox News. Joe Scarborough dedicates a cover of a Paul McCartney song to show support for frontline workers. Laura Ingraham says free market will lead us down the right path out of Covid, left wants to keep you contained forever.
