2676 - Colin Kaepernick And The Beginning Of A Massive Social Justice Movement in Sports w/ Dave Zirin
<p>Emma hosts <a href= "https://twitter.com/EdgeofSports?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/EdgeofSports?ref_src%3Dtwsrc%255Egoogle%257Ctwcamp%255Eserp%257Ctwgr%255Eauthor&source=gmail&ust=1631820150390000&usg=AFQjCNEwn6isIGbDrB9kIuWsMFzybTtayw">Dave Zirin</a>, sports editor at The Nation, to discuss his recent book <a href="https://thenewpress.com/books/kaepernick-effect" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://thenewpress.com/books/kaepernick-effect&source=gmail&ust=1631820150390000&usg=AFQjCNF8-fYvHvYR8fF-FR0gJudINGuidQ">The Kaepernick Effect: Taking A Knee, Changing the World.</a> Emma starts off by weighing in on former Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney's excoriating testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday, where she specifically implicated the FBI and Congressionally established committees in enabling Larry Nassar's vicious abuse of young women and girls on the Olympic team and at Michigan State University.</p> <p>Then Emma and Dave dive into discussing Colin Kaepernick's seismic effect on social justice demonstrations, a ripple effect from kneeling on the sideline during the national anthem at NFL games all the way to the massive protest movements last summer in the wake of George Floyd's death at the hands of Derek Chauvin. Dave sets the scene by prefacing how Kaepernick came about the act of kneeling, by interfacing with NFL player and veteran Nate Boyer on how to convey the solemnity of the occasion while respectfully dissenting, and how that didn't matter to the people hell bent on vilifying him no matter the context. They then dive into the real juxtaposition of Kaepernick's taking a knee in the name of racial justice in America, contrasted with Officer Derek Chauvin's knee on the neck of George Floyd, and how that symbolism really animated the demonstrations of last summer in Dave's experience. Dave then tackles the civic religion of football and team sports, and how those connections, in the place of other public squares and communal connections, partially due to the atomization of labor, leave sports teams and stadiums as some of the last vestiges of the public square for many communities. Dave specifically notes this in the context of the NFL, especially in terms of the Super Bowl, one of the last events, he believes, that represents any sort of monoculture in the United States in the present day, despite maybe presidential elections. Emma and Dave then unpack some of the demonstrations, from the professional, college, and high school level, that emerged from Kaepernick kneeling, the repercussions it had for the demonstrators, the coaches, and the schools, and what impact he believed that extension of the protests had, both positive and negative. They close out the conversation by discussing some of the watered down efforts the NFL and other leagues have taken to address "inequality" and how those have essentially supplanted supporting legitimate forms of protest, all at the expense of front-liners like Kaepernick, safety Eric Reid, and wide receiver Kenny Stills, who to this day are still unemployed by an NFL team as a result of their sacrifice to the cause, while also outlining the progress that players have made by speaking the only language owners understand: that the NFL is a labor force they need to pacify to some extent, because if they don't the money can run out. This, as Dave ends on, really only lays bare the fallacy of attempting to divorce politics from sports: with these types of labor and social dynamics at play, it simply isn't possible.</p> <p>In the second half, Emma is joined by <a href= "https://twitter.com/MattBinder?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor"> Matt</a> and <a href= "https://twitter.com/prettybadlefty">Brandon</a>, and they dive into Joe Biden completely forgetting the Australian Prime Minister's name (it's Scott Morrison, not the "fella from down under") Grant Stinchfield losing his shit on NewsMax when a veteran guest dares to critique Trump, the Daily Wire bros dishing their takes on how Barack Obama ruined rock n' roll music (???), a blast from the past news report the Daily Show dug up about some Michiganders' opposition to a seatbelt ordinance in 1984, and Dave Rubin trying his best to flaunt his comedic chops by pretending to be downing shots of tequila "off-air" to assuage his misery that Larry Elder lost the recall.

2675 - The Secret History of the War on Terror w/ Craig Whitlock

Sam and Emma first touch upon the resounding victory for Gavin Newsom in the California recall election from last night, and discuss Newsom's nationalizing of the recall/pinning the results to the "shadow president" for the Republicans (Trump) as a telegraph of the political strategy going forward into 2022.</p> <p>Then Emma and Sam are joined by Craig, who starts out by discussing how him and the Washington Post obtained the Afghanistan Papers, the trove of documents the Post obtained via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that serve as the basis for the book, and how the book timed up perfectly with Biden's announcement of the withdrawal of troops in August, as well as the context behind the "Lessons Learned" project run through a little known federal agency called the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) that was the source of the lion's share of the notes and transcripts that comprised the papers. Craig goes deeper into describing the testimony from the interview transcripts of "Lessons Learned", citing how many past, present, and current military officials considered the war in Afghanistan "much worse than you think", and that "we didn't know what we were doing" in terms of strategic goals in Afghanistan. Craig goes so far as to report that former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld had no appreciable strategy for the war in Afghanistan beyond "chasing terrorists". Sam and Emma dive deeper into the idea that these transcripts and notes were intentionally hidden by the Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations, noting that the SIGAR reports that were publicly disclosed were significantly edited and sanitized. Craig then goes back to the early 2000's, stating that there was a pretty clear game plan for the first 60 days of the war, but that there was no recognizable strategy or timetable for what the United States was doing occupying Afghanistan, especially when George W. Bush made it clear that this was not a "nation-building" project to begin with. The emphasis was also very clearly on Iraq over Afghanistan, to the point where Rumsfeld asked Bush to meet with the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan as well as the commander in Iraq. Bush only wanted to meet with the Iraq commander, and didn't even know who the Afghanistan commander was, and didn't want to meet with him anyways. Craig then pivots to the Obama years, where the Administration very clearly wanted to continue the war without calling it a war, so as to not step on the toes of their allies whose presence in Afghanistan would violate some of their own war-making laws and practices if it was called a war by their allies. Not wanting to call it a war, but not being accurate enough to call it a "peacekeeping mission", the Obama administration landed on the clunky "non-conventional war effort" to split the difference. Afterwards, Craig discloses the combustible report that the Bush Administration furiously attempted to cover up, that former Vice President Dick Cheney was almost killed in a suicide bombing at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, and how this pattern of attempting to spin every negative outcome into a positive one throughout the war persisted across every presidential administration in the 21st century. They end on the warped and strange arc of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's career, how he was a widely respected military official until his full throated embrace of Trump and QAnon stifled that perception, as well as Craig hoping that previous, current, and future administrations will learn from the mistakes of the past 20 years, but doesn't have too much hope because, well, Bush and Rumsfeld didn't learn from the mistakes of Vietnam outlined in, you guessed it, another trove of documents that made clear how badly we were losing a protracted war: The Pentagon Papers.</p> <p>In the Fun Half, Sam gives a brief primer on the fight over taxation between the House and the Senate Dems in the reconciliation mockups going around the Hill, the crew checks in on the House and Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearings where in the House Ilhan Omar grills Secretary of State Blinken over the drone strike that may have killed a foreign aid worker instead of an ISIS-K operative, and in the Senate Idaho Senator Jim Risch gets to more pressing matters, namely: who the heck is pressing the button that controls when Biden talks? Then the crew check in on Ben Shapiro melting down over Cara Delevingne's "Peg the Patriarchy" look at the Met Gala, to which Ben feels the great need to describe what pegging means to him. And FINALLY the crew has the honor of dissecting Tucker Carlson's fascination with Nicki Minaj's cousin's friend's balls after his COVID vaccination (Tucker corrected the record to reflect it was Nicki's cousin's friend, not cousin), Tucker's quest to get him on the show, and we get a real time dispatch from the Trinidad and Tobago Health Minister over whether this dude's balls actually swelled post-vax.

Professor Tooze first reflects on the collective difficulty in processing those twelve months, and how he came to write this book, before he, Emma, and Sam jump all the way back to the start of last year and dive into the mistakes in the original response from the Chinese government, and the massive impact their eventual tactics had on their economy. Next, they reflect on the US’s and much of Europe’s near-immediate botching of their response, completely overshadowing any initial failures of Xi Jinping’s regime and clearly expressing lacking elements of cultural consciousness in the US when it came to masks and social responsibility. Sam jumps on this element, exploring the relationship between cultural consciousness and experience when it comes to responding to pandemics, before they move on to discuss the role of minority media circles, driven by conspiracy, and Emma dives into the role of individualism and atomization in driving the individual skepticism that helps this catch fire. They wrap up the interview by looking back to parallels with the recovery from the 2008 financial crisis, looking at how the 2010 election saw an attempt to push the US back to normalcy and away from the redistribution and social welfare they had set up over the crisis, as well as the important reminder that aid to big businesses had not and would not stop over that time. Prof. Tooze uses this to emphasize the importance of investment in technology as a key was to move US culture forwards, looping in both climate and pandemic policy, before Sam and Emma conclude the free half with a CA recall discussion.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Nomiki joins Sam and Emma as they dive into the discourse on AOC’s Met Gala appearance, following a brief but very necessary explanation of what it even is for Sam, taking on the elements of performativity, and where they stand, particularly when the performance, debatably, fell short. Next, they get a free Masterpiece lesson on journalism from karaoke journalist Michael Tracey (both in that he performs mostly for crowd engagement and that he uses a karaoke machine) on Covid regulations at Connecticut College, before Terrell from Conn College, calls in to give his own perspective. They also chat CA recall and what rhetoric Dems should push moving into the midterms, plus, your IMs!</p> </div> <div> <p>Become a member at <a href= "http://www.jointhemajorityreport.com/">JoinTheMajorityReport.com</a></p> <p>Subscribe to the AMQuickie newsletter <a href= "https://madmimi.com/signups/170390/join">here.</a></p> <p>Join the Majority Report Discord!<br /> <a href= "http://majoritydiscord.com/">http://majoritydiscord.com/</a></p> <p>Get all your MR merch at our store <a href= "https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/</a></p> <p>(Merch issues and concerns can be addressed here: <a href= "mailto:majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com</a>)</p> <p>You can now watch the livestream on <a href= "https://www.twitch.tv/themajorityreport" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Twitch</a></p> <p>Check out today’s sponsors:</p> <p><strong>ZipRecruiter:</strong> Some things in life we like to pick out for ourselves - so we know we've got the one that's best for us - like cuts of steak or mattresses.

2673 - How American Efforts to Humanize War Dehumanize It Even Further w/ Samuel Moyn
<p>Sam and Emma host <a href= "https://twitter.com/samuelmoyn?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/samuelmoyn?ref_src%3Dtwsrc%255Egoogle%257Ctwcamp%255Eserp%257Ctwgr%255Eauthor&source=gmail&ust=1631386028951000&usg=AFQjCNEJPKHmOjsLZPVgZjhfZCwFphacQg">Samuel Moyn</a>, Professor of History at Yale University, to discuss his recent book <a href= "https://us.macmillan.com/books/9780374173708" target="_blank" rel= "noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://us.macmillan.com/books/9780374173708&source=gmail&ust=1631386028951000&usg=AFQjCNFtEjHTYsxgiSAGE_w_jsqfK1GNYA">Humane: How the United States Abandoned Peace and Reinvented War</a>, on how the evolving face of the American Empire has changed the way we perceive war, and what we can do to get the conversation back on track. Starting all the way back in the mid-19th Century, Professor Moyn dives into the first Geneva Convention and the attempt by the Swiss to make war more humane, as well as the response by some like Leo Tolstoy who worried that it might, in fact, further legitimize war. He, Sam, and Emma then situate the role of America in all of this, jumping off of the massacres of the Vietnam War and the changes both in Geneva law – focused around civilians and collateral damage – and in the perspective of the US military, that it inspired, before moving back to how the two World Wars and transatlantic combat put the US at the warfront of the western empires, locking them into brutal wars to “keep the peace” ever since. Next, they look into why the backlash to the brutalities of Vietnam was so much more severe than that of the war on terror, situating the former within a pre-existing anti-war movement, and then jump into the role of Barack Obama in really cementing the ideology of the “humane” war through public declarations of both the need for constant warfare, and the need for humane warfare. They wrap up the interview with a conversation on the role of technology in bolstering the Rumsfeldian light warfare, and summarize the evolution of, and what we could see next from, the American empire. Emma and Sam also touch on Manchin’s mumbling maneuvers to avoid getting too into the numbers of the Infrastructure Package, despite his recent complaints about the numbers.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Gabe from Ontario calls in to get out the vote for the NDP in the upcoming Canadian election, Sandy from Ontario boosts that message before getting a warm thank you for her incredible gift to the MR studio, and Nicholas from St. Louis converses with Sam and Emma on the differences in pushing for individual lifestyle changes (veganism) and pushing for actual policy change. The MR crew also explores the social (rather than immune) boost Joe Rogan got from ivermectin, discusses the recent and growing legitimization of George W. Bush and his administration’s war crimes, and reflects on the disasters of Rudy Giuliani past, present, and future. They wrap up the fun half with Tucker Carlson finally speaking on a topic he has expertise in (lying and using your power to protect the powerful) and the progression of recent anti-Mask Mandates, plus, your calls and IMs!</p> <p>Become a member at <a href= "http://www.jointhemajorityreport.com/">JoinTheMajorityReport.com</a></p> <p>Subscribe to the AMQuickie newsletter <a href= "https://madmimi.com/signups/170390/join">here.</a></p> <p>Join the Majority Report Discord!<br /> <a href= "http://majoritydiscord.com/">http://majoritydiscord.com/</a></p> <p>Get all your MR merch at our store <a href= "https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/</a></p> <p>(Merch issues and concerns can be addressed here: <a href= "mailto:majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com</a>)</p> <p>You can now watch the livestream on <a href= "https://www.twitch.tv/themajorityreport" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Twitch</a></p> <p>Check out today’s sponsors:</p> <p><strong>LiquidIV: </strong>The hot summer months are here and we need to be proactive to keep our body fueled up & hydrated. Liquid I.V. contains 5 essential vitamins—more Vitamin C than an orange and as much potassium as a banana.

2672 - The Politics Behind Biden's Sweeping Vaccine Mandates w/ Ryan Grim
<p>It's Casual Friday! Sam hosts <a href= "https://twitter.com/ryangrim?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/ryangrim?ref_src%3Dtwsrc%255Egoogle%257Ctwcamp%255Eserp%257Ctwgr%255Eauthor&source=gmail&ust=1631367286849000&usg=AFQjCNGtrGxBiYvTbKD2A6m5uMCC6bG1-g">Ryan Grim</a>, D.C. Bureau Chief at The Intercept, to discuss his recent bombshell scoop <a href= "https://theintercept.com/2021/09/07/joe-manchin-epipen-price-heather-bresch/" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://theintercept.com/2021/09/07/joe-manchin-epipen-price-heather-bresch/&source=gmail&ust=1631367286849000&usg=AFQjCNHRMYIWCOexPIlbVbyoE6VjW8-LjQ">Heather Bresch, Joe Manchin's Daughter, Played Direct Part In EpiPen Price Inflation Scandal</a> and round out the week in news. Ryan and Sam jump into a quick discussion of Biden’s recent vaccine mandate announcement, and speculate on the role it can play in bolstering Biden and Democrats' support going into the midterms with a large majority of Americans both already vaccinated and supportive of a mandate. They dive particularly into the culture war narrative currently driving politics and how that could both help and hurt Democratic midterm success, before touching on what is to be expected with COVID rates. Grim then dives into his scoop on the Manchin family, starting with Joe Manchin’s recent attempt to cut down the infrastructure budget and discussing what the budget actually means when it comes to spending, before moving onto the scandal breaking around Manchin’s daughter, Heather Bresch, and wife, Gayle. Ryan sets up the corruption starting with Heather’s faked diplomas from West Virginia University that helped her reach the office of COO, then President and CEO of Mylan Pharmaceuticals and her mother’s role as a lobbyist for the association of school boards, before he and Sam dive into Bresch’s makeshift monopoly, of both supplier and distributor, of EpiPens alongside Pfizer, resulting in over a 500% increase in price, and a Mylan scheme to force their consumers to choose between literal death or spending mass amounts of money on multi-EpiPen packages, all while Gayle Manchin helped secure requirements for schools to purchase their own supplies of EpiPens. They round out the interview by exploring how Dem leadership can turn these metaphorical scandal lemons into an infrastructure lemonade, and Sam dives a little deeper into Biden’s new vaccine mandate.</p> <div>And in the second half of the show, <a href= "https://twitter.com/langdonboom?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor"> Matthew Film Guy</a> joins Sam as they reminisce on culture and comedy in the wake of 9/11, before they move onto the effect of 9/11 on general American culture, discussing the shift to the Right in mainstream media and pop culture in the early aughts and what direction today’s artists might shift mainstream political culture, and Matt gives his suggestions. Sam also touches on the deplorable laughter at a boy discussing the death of his grandmother in a Tennessee school board meeting, Rep. Katie Porter’s callout of Joe Manchin and centrist Dems, and Ben Shapiro’s commitment to replacement theory, even when it comes to statues. They also cover Crowder’s return to being a horrible person on YouTube, plus, your IMs!</div> <p>Become a member at <a href= "http://www.jointhemajorityreport.com/">JoinTheMajorityReport.com</a></p> <p>Subscribe to the AMQuickie newsletter <a href= "https://madmimi.com/signups/170390/join">here.</a></p> <p>Join the Majority Report Discord!<br /> <a href= "http://majoritydiscord.com/">http://majoritydiscord.com/</a></p> <p>Get all your MR merch at our store <a href= "https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/</a></p> <p>(Merch issues and concerns can be addressed here: <a href= "mailto:majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com</a>)</p> <p>You can now watch the livestream on <a href= "https://www.twitch.tv/themajorityreport" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Twitch</a></p> <p>Check out today’s sponsors:</p> <p><strong>sunsetlakecbd</strong> is a majority employee owned farm in Vermont, producing 100% pesticide free CBD products.

2671 - How 9/11 Permanently Changed American National Security w/ Russ Feingold
<p>Sam hosts <a href= "https://twitter.com/russfeingold?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor">Russ Feingold,</a> President of the American Constitution Society and former United States Senator from Wisconsin, to discuss the legacy 9/11 has had on the American national security state, and what to expect going forward, to discuss the legacy 9/11 has had on the American national security state, and what to expect going forward. Senator Feingold starts off by jumping back to the first reports of the attacks trickling in nearly twenty years ago, and what his experiences on Capitol Hill were like as flight 93 approached DC. Then, he and Sam get into the political response in each branch of the US government, starting with George W. Bush’s response, developing from what Senator Feingold saw as one of the greatest presidential speeches, immediately following 9/11, to, within days, capitalizing on the horror to progress the conservative agenda around both the Iraq War and with the Patriot Act with his “axis of evil” speech. Sam and Russ explore how the Patriot Act was brought to the floor, recalling why Senator Feingold was the only Senator at that time to vote against the bill, including the elements in the bill that clearly had nothing to do with terrorism alongside the conservative exploitation of the moment to bolster their run to take back the house in 2002. Next, the jump into the similar role played by Democrats in approving the Iraq War – outside of those like Feingold and Wellstone – and what it took for them to come around on it, including how resistance to the war bolstered Obama’s 2008 run. They then jump into the years under Obama, and how his deference to the FBI and military allowed the progression of the Military State to continue to infringe on the liberties of citizens and non-citizens alike, before they wrap up the interview with a conversation on the developments of that we have seen in the role of SCOTUS over the last two decades, moving from the failures of Bush v. Gore in 2000 to the obstructionism of McConnell and the build of the current Court.

2670 - The Struggle To Define Citizens' Role In American Government w/ Paul Sabin
<p>Sam hosts <a href="https://twitter.com/paulesabin?lang=en" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/paulesabin?lang%3Den&source=gmail&ust=1630780871631000&usg=AFQjCNF2ayOgNGZCwKjlvKJwTKc1_BIyiQ">Paul Sabin</a>, professor of history at Yale University and director of the Yale Environmental Humanities Program, to discuss his recent book <a href= "https://history.yale.edu/publications/public-citizens-attack-big-government-and-remaking-american-liberalism" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://history.yale.edu/publications/public-citizens-attack-big-government-and-remaking-american-liberalism&source=gmail&ust=1630780871631000&usg=AFQjCNFTQ0O6tZd3YTQ6SI8t0twul8IAXQ">Public Citizens: The Attack On Big Government and the Remaking of American Liberalism</a>, on how the US went from eras defined by government action under FDR through LBJ, to Reagan and Clinton coming together across the aisle to end the “era of big government.” Professor Sabin starts us off in the Fifties and early Sixties with the government's managerial role in brokering between businesses and the labor industries, and the rise of liberals speaking out against the unaccounted power in politics; they walk through the roles of folks like Ralph Nader, Jane Jacobs, and Rachel Carson and how they turned on government planning, taking on their efficiency particularly when it comes to their relationships with sectors such as the auto industry. After a little background on Nader’s libertarian, albeit, progressive, roots, and how they gave birth to all sorts of NGOs, such as the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), which attempted to keep public interest behind the wheel of government. Next, they look into the jumpstart on the turn against government with the Nixon administration and how it was bolstered by liberal attempts to get the government to buckle down, with procedural interventions such as FOIA, unfortunately, undermining the trust in government, particularly as Nader and co. pushed back against the supposedly successful liberal regime under Carter. Lastly, Paul and Sam turn towards the Reagan and Clinton years, and they debate the role of Clinton in marking the end of big government, as he promised the end of said era, before they wrap up the interview by discussing the rhetorical failures by liberals in attempting to have the government-run “efficiently” rather than run with “good platforms.” Sam concludes the fun half with some updates on Texas’ take on Roe v. Wade, alongside Greg Abbott’s new and improved plan to eliminate rapists.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Sam discusses his internal issues and the problematic nature of procedural hindrances to digestion (he got food poisoning), the MR crew discusses NYC education COVID policy, as well as the fight AND flight conflict of COVID deniers. They also discuss Fox’s Brian Kilmeade objections to giving a horse drug a bad name, Lauren Windsor’s continued brilliance in duping Republican officials into spilling party tea, and expand both on Gov. Abbott’s turn against sexual assault, and Elon Musk’s response to his proclaimed support for Texan social policy. They wrap up the fun half with a conversation on how culture war dominates discourse over material benefit, particularly in the context of discussing Texan abortion law, plus, your IMs!</p> <p>Become a member at <a href= "http://www.jointhemajorityreport.com/">JoinTheMajorityReport.com</a></p> <p>Subscribe to the AMQuickie newsletter <a href= "https://madmimi.com/signups/170390/join">here.</a></p> <p>Join the Majority Report Discord!<br /> <a href= "http://majoritydiscord.com/">http://majoritydiscord.com/</a></p> <p>Get all your MR merch at our store <a href= "https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/</a></p> <p>(Merch issues and concerns can be addressed here: <a href= "mailto:majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com</a>)</p> <p>You can now watch the livestream on <a href= "https://www.twitch.tv/themajorityreport" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Twitch</a></p> <p>Check out today’s sponsors:</p> <p><strong>quip</strong>: quip mouthwash kills bad breath germs, helps prevent cavities, and leaves you feeling fresh thanks to a formula that gives your mouth everything it needs.

2667 - SCOTUS Enables Vigilante Laws Through The Shadow Docket As Workers Fall Off The Unemployment Cliff w/ Heather Digby Parton
<p>It's Casual Friday! Sam and Emma host <a href= "https://twitter.com/digby56?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/digby56?ref_src%3Dtwsrc%255Egoogle%257Ctwcamp%255Eserp%257Ctwgr%255Eauthor&source=gmail&ust=1630694033783000&usg=AFQjCNGmLx7hm7sc8aWlNmqfhYlDe6cWEQ">Heather Digby Parton</a>, contributing writer at Salon.com, to wrap up the week in news, from the Texas abortion law's overturning of Roe v. Wade and its civil-bounty policy, to the upcoming cut off of federal unemployment benefits. Heather, Sam, and Emma start off by looking at the developments of the Supreme Court as an institution, paying particular attention to the increased use of shadow dockets since the start of the Trump Presidency, and continuing into Biden’s, before generally walking through the anti-democratic and unilateral nature of the Court, and how the Democrats have refused to take on their excesses of power. Next, they explore potential paths to take in restoring and protecting Roe v. Wade, including how SCOTUS could fight back against legislative codification or capitalizing on the foolishness and destructive capacity of the “bounty” civil suits to get the Texas law overturned, before turning to how Democrats have to try to bolster their support going into the 2022 elections. They also discuss the importance of the Trump Presidency in today’s courts, the role of the Manchins and Sinemas moving forwards, as now Roe v. Wade hangs in the balance alongside the infrastructure package, and the incoming unemployment drop-off that will put millions of Americans on the financial brink as the pandemic still rages. They wrap up the interview with some previews for the 2022 election cycle, and Sam and Emma cover their fundraising effort for Afghan refugees, the destruction of Hurricane Ida, and the absurdity of SCOTUS’ procedural argument.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Sam, Emma, and the MR crew celebrate the end of summer with a Sun’s out Guns out fundraiser for Afghan refugees, featuring Sam’s lovely graphic tank from Ronald Raygun and a multitude of double-barreled performances from our host. Ronald Raygun calls in to talk about the classification of Afghan refugees as “parolees,” and how we can still push the government to accept more and more of them. Mike from Winnipeg talks plant-based eating, Josh from KC explores corruption and charter schools, we get a colorful conversation with Hunter Biden, and look at the crashing of the Texas abortionsnitch site, plus, your calls and IMs!</p> <p>Become a member at <a href= "http://www.jointhemajorityreport.com/">JoinTheMajorityReport.com</a></p> <p>Subscribe to the AMQuickie newsletter <a href= "https://madmimi.com/signups/170390/join">here.</a></p> <p>Join the Majority Report Discord!<br /> <a href= "http://majoritydiscord.com/">http://majoritydiscord.com/</a></p> <p>Get all your MR merch at our store <a href= "https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/</a></p> <p>(Merch issues and concerns can be addressed here: <a href= "mailto:majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com</a>)</p> <p>You can now watch the livestream on <a href= "https://www.twitch.tv/themajorityreport" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Twitch</a></p> <p>Check out today’s sponsors:</p> <p><strong>sunsetlakecbd</strong> is a majority employee owned farm in Vermont, producing 100% pesticide free CBD products.

<p>Emma hosts <a href= "https://theintercept.com/staff/jimrisen/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://theintercept.com/staff/jimrisen/&source=gmail&ust=1630608230258000&usg=AFQjCNF94rlaVTLD__6UdTz5NYZVuOvZoQ">James Risen,</a> Senior National Security Correspondent at the Intercept, to discuss his recent piece <a href= "https://theintercept.com/2021/08/26/afghanistan-america-failures/" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://theintercept.com/2021/08/26/afghanistan-america-failures/&source=gmail&ust=1630608230258000&usg=AFQjCNFqDax-b4h-kNq5Lm4ts7Zo4k_bow">"A War's Epitaph: For Two Decades, Americans Were Told One Lie After Another About What They Were Doing In Afghanistan"</a>, on how bad the “good war” has been since it began. James and Emma walk through the US’s failed twenty-year involvement in what was essentially another country’s civil war, how it began, and the countless mistakes made along the way which were inevitably covered up. They begin with the first involvement in the region with the Bush Administration’s invasion and propping up of the Karzai Presidency, which almost immediately fell to rampant corruption as US funding flowed through a Karzai-backed heroin trade, emphasizing the shell of a government that we had set up. Risen also touches on how the lack of genuine investment from either the local government or their US backing set the stage for the almost immediate collapse following the military exit, before moving onto the Obama years, and what his commitment to his “good war,” through mass investment in the preexisting corruption and the development of his collateral damage drone program, really meant. James and Emma conclude the interview by looking at how the major players in Afghanistan have developed to where they’re at now, before Emma wraps up the first half with a discussion on the countless horrors stemming from last night’s Supreme Court decision, as well as the lacking response from the Biden Administration, and Gov. Kathy Hochul's wonder at the “once in a thousand years” natural disaster that we’ve somehow been seeing with increasing frequency.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Emma, Brandon, and Matt discuss the horrors of Hurricane Ida, Matt’s flooding, and Sam from NoLa gives a bit of the southern perspective after the storm left, and extreme heat came in. They also discuss supposed-naturalist Joe Rogan’s pharmaceutical-heavy solution to catching COVID, Mike from PA’s guest suggestion, and debate the filmmaking legacy of M. Night Shyamalan, before discussing Candace Owens’ COVID skepticism coming back to bite her, and Tucker and Dave Rubin's projection of personal shortcomings onto AOC, plus, your calls and IMs!</p> <p>Become a member at <a href= "http://www.jointhemajorityreport.com/">JoinTheMajorityReport.com</a></p> <p>Subscribe to the AMQuickie newsletter <a href= "https://madmimi.com/signups/170390/join">here.</a></p> <p>Join the Majority Report Discord!<br /> <a href= "http://majoritydiscord.com/">http://majoritydiscord.com/</a></p> <p>Get all your MR merch at our store <a href= "https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/</a></p> <p>(Merch issues and concerns can be addressed here: <a href= "mailto:majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com</a>)</p> <p>You can now watch the livestream on <a href= "https://www.twitch.tv/themajorityreport" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Twitch</a></p> <p>Check out today’s sponsor:</p> <p><strong>BetterHelp</strong> gives you access to your own fully licensed and accredited therapist via phone, chat, or video. A lot of therapists elsewhere have long waitlists and it can take weeks or months before they can see you… But when you sign up with BetterHelp, they match you with a therapist based on your specific needs, and you’ll be communicating with them in less than 24 hours.

2665 - Elon Musk: Tesla's, And His Own Worst Enemy w/ Tim Higgins
<p>Sam and Emma hosts <a href= "https://twitter.com/timkhiggins?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/timkhiggins?ref_src%3Dtwsrc%255Egoogle%257Ctwcamp%255Eserp%257Ctwgr%255Eauthor&source=gmail&ust=1630521932954000&usg=AFQjCNEGxM_eBT3cJjfuzSu0Kzz33Q3W6Q">Tim Higgins,</a> Wall Street Journal reporter and CNBC contributor, to discuss his recent book <a href= "https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/611077/power-play-by-tim-higgins/" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/611077/power-play-by-tim-higgins/&source=gmail&ust=1630521932954000&usg=AFQjCNGlnyny1cATEExSa3PAQRfjAsve-w">Power Play: Tesla, Elon Musk, and the Bet of the Century</a>, on how Elon Musk sells the future, and how much of that vision can actually be guaranteed. They jump off from JB Straubel’s invention that helped Elon popularize high-end electric vehicles (EVs), reflecting on the 20th-century EV attempts by GM and Toyota, and why they fell apart, before touching on why Tesla’s focus on the high-end price points was central to their success. Next, they dive into where Tesla’s production has been lacking, particularly with Elon’s self-driving cars and other fantastical promises, and Tim looks into the validity of Theranos comparisons. He, Sam, and Emma also touch on the biggest threats to Tesla in the EV market, at what age a startup truly matures into a real company, and what it means that such a long-shot investment has a massive financial backing in the industry, before Sam explores what shorting the stock would take, and the crew talks the dangers of letting a single man shape the future of an entire industry. Sam and Emma also touch on SCOTUS letting Roe v. Wade slip through the cracks in Texas with SB-8, setting the road for a massive fight for reproductive rights ahead, as well as the (hopefully) official end of fighting in Afghanistan, and the importance of the Courts moving forwards.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: The MR Crew walks through Dave Rubin’s legal expertise (mostly based on big-word usage), D from NYC calls in to defend Elon Musks’ many classic talents, including engineering and following through on his own previous claims, and DJ Cold Case gets Sam into the social security zone on the recent fear-mongering on the well running dry. They also touch on the ever-increasing role the Supreme Court has begun to play in making drastically consequential political decisions. They round it out with some classic Fox out-foxing of other journalists as Jeanine Pirro employs the classic “ignore and walk away” tactic, and they discuss the incredibly racist scandal around a Texas school board, CRT, and a Black principal, plus, your calls and IMs!</p> <p>Become a member at <a href= "http://www.jointhemajorityreport.com/">JoinTheMajorityReport.com</a></p> <p>Subscribe to the AMQuickie newsletter <a href= "https://madmimi.com/signups/170390/join">here.</a></p> <p>Join the Majority Report Discord!<br /> <a href= "http://majoritydiscord.com/">http://majoritydiscord.com/</a></p> <p>Get all your MR merch at our store <a href= "https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/</a></p> <p>(Merch issues and concerns can be addressed here: <a href= "mailto:majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com</a>)</p> <p>You can now watch the livestream on <a href= "https://www.twitch.tv/themajorityreport" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Twitch</a></p> <p>Check out today’s sponsors:</p> <p><strong>Harry’s</strong>: With Harry’s, you don’t have to choose between a great shave and a fair price. Harry’s delivers a close, comfortable shave at a fair price – still as low as two dollars per refill! Harry’s is giving their best offer to Majority Report listeners.

2664 - What Demographics and the New Census Data Mean For America's Future w/ Richard Alba
<p>Sam and Emma host <a href= "https://www.gc.cuny.edu/Page-Elements/Academics-Research-Centers-Initiatives/Doctoral-Programs/Sociology/Faculty-Bios/Richard-Alba" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.gc.cuny.edu/Page-Elements/Academics-Research-Centers-Initiatives/Doctoral-Programs/Sociology/Faculty-Bios/Richard-Alba&source=gmail&ust=1630435689936000&usg=AFQjCNFLVCOccioaCZnI09g3S5kGciNKyA">Richard Alba</a>, Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the Graduate Center at the City University of New York (CUNY), to discuss his recent book <a href= "https://press.princeton.edu/books/hardcover/9780691201634/the-great-demographic-illusion" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://press.princeton.edu/books/hardcover/9780691201634/the-great-demographic-illusion&source=gmail&ust=1630435689936000&usg=AFQjCNG4vBZ6PLAhS832CVNZjFvyVptDEg">The Great Demographic Illusion: Majority, Minority, and the Expanding American Mainstream</a>, on the failure of the Majority/Minority model, and the demographics are destiny approach. They start off by reflecting on how recent the belief in the power of majorities has been emphasized in social science, before Prof. Alba walks through the history of this discourse, looking back to the mid-20th-century expansion of mainstream whiteness to include Irish, Italian, and Jewish people, as well as the importance of ethno-racial mixing in blurring these boundaries. Next, he, Sam, and Emma explore how the fixed nature of demographic boundaries fails to reflect the fluidity of both identity and definition among people, as well as the influence of maintaining the racialized underclass of white supremacy has on the shifting boundaries. They also touch on the polarizing nature of Majority/Minority discourse, and its contribution to racial anxiety among white people, as well as the variety of variables that influence the influx of mixed folks in the recent census including reconfiguring the ethno-racial definition process. They wrap up the interview by touching on social policies that can help encourage assimilation towards equality, particularly focusing on economic and social inequality, and how Professor Alba would respond to those on the right that consistently push white replacement theory. Sam and Emma also touch on recent and impending SCOTUS decisions, resulting in a potential 750k household evictions over the next six months, and potentially seeing Texas overturn Roe v. Wade.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Sam finds solace and solidarity in a school board pranking, Steven Crowder has trouble connecting with a guest’s story on racism, for some reason, and Carrie Prejean Boller continues her entrance onto the political stage through Fox and the far-right after her “canceling” for homophobic Miss California comments. The MR crew also discusses mask mandate prohibitions and the DOE’s Civil Rights Division’s plan to take them on, the Right’s politicization of sports with vaccination requirements, Critical Race Theory and Tax Codes, Tucker Carlson's mommy issues, and screen time policy on both the household, and federal levels, plus, your IMs!</p> <p>Become a member at <a href= "http://www.jointhemajorityreport.com/">JoinTheMajorityReport.com</a></p> <p>Subscribe to the AMQuickie newsletter <a href= "https://madmimi.com/signups/170390/join">here.</a></p> <p>Join the Majority Report Discord!<br /> <a href= "http://majoritydiscord.com/">http://majoritydiscord.com/</a></p> <p>Get all your MR merch at our store <a href= "https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/</a></p> <p>(Merch issues and concerns can be addressed here: <a href= "mailto:majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com</a>)</p> <p>You can now watch the livestream on <a href= "https://www.twitch.tv/themajorityreport" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Twitch</a></p> <p>Check out today’s sponsors:</p> <p><strong>Joybird</strong> offers modern, customizable furniture for every space, available in a variety of vibrant, durable fabric options It’s finally here!

2663 - Hurricane Ida and The Delta Variant Batter Louisiana w/ Dr. MarkAlain Dery
<p>Sam's back this week as him and Emma host infectious disease specialist  <a href= "https://accesshealthla.org/service/infectious-disease/">Dr. MarkAlain Dery</a>, infectious disease physician and epidemiologist at Access Health Louisiana and host of the daily <a href= "https://www.noisefiltershow.com/">NoiseFilter Podcast</a>, to discuss the fallout from Hurricane Ida making landfall in Louisiana, the evacuation efforts, and what it means for hospitals battling COVID-19 at the same time. Calling in from New Orleans City Hall, Dr. Dery describes the development of this perfect storm; following a massive uptick in Delta cases throughout the south and with hospitalizations still on the rise, despite already being at capacity, Hurricane Ida hit Louisiana immediately knocking out power and causing medical emergencies throughout New Orleans. He also dives into the lessons that the city had learned from Katrina, with improved infrastructure around levies and roofing, and looks into the evacuation attempt in the city. He, Sam, and Emma also look forward to how the viral pandemic will continue to develop after ravaging the south, with Dr. Dery looking at unvaccinated pockets throughout the country and the political games being played by Republican governors as the largest threats, as well as the likely developments of more and more strains as global vaccine rates remain low. They wrap up the interview with a discussion on the importance of responsible public health communication from both representatives and the mainstream media. Sam and Emma also look into the developments in the Afghanistan Evacuation, the U.S.’s resumption of killing civilians in the region, and the failure of the U.S. infrastructure to prepare hospitals for the pandemic and Hurricane Ida (if only there was an infrastructure package that was properly supported).</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Sam gives an update on approving his Suns out Guns out license, the MR crew discusses the stirrings of the covid horrors as schools begin to reopen as well as the incredible culpability of the legitimate media that is “just asking questions” around vaccine skepticism. They also touch on some stories of regret on this coverage, including from a chiropractor in North Dakota, and Emma takes on the sapping of collective consciousness from public health issues in our “me” society.

2662 - A Begrudging Nod to Biden's Firm Stance On The Afghanistan Withdrawal w/ Alex Pareene
<p>It's Casual Friday! Emma hosts <a href= "https://twitter.com/pareene?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/pareene?ref_src%3Dtwsrc%255Egoogle%257Ctwcamp%255Eserp%257Ctwgr%255Eauthor&source=gmail&ust=1630153699444000&usg=AFQjCNGZtxT0HrxiXX6YrE8PZHL_pxWpgA">Alex Pareene,</a> contributing editor at The New Republic and author of <a href="https://theap.substack.com/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://theap.substack.com/&source=gmail&ust=1630153699444000&usg=AFQjCNGoBEc8o7c7-fnPZ03aEZHPAJ3Eqw">The AP</a> newsletter on Substack, to wrap up the events of the week. Emma starts off with some righteous indignation towards former Trump National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster saying to resident CNN Pentagon stenographer Jim Sciutto that the ISIS-K attacks in Kabul may have been a setup by the Taliban to make the Americans look bad. Anything to beat that war drum! Then, Emma and Alex get into how the media framing of the withdrawal most likely has a significant hand in Biden's approval ratings dipping, while buttressing a narrative that the "way" that this withdrawal is transpiring could look any less chaotic and fraught. They both acknowledge the reality that the mainstream press is unwilling to and, surprisingly, that Biden and his national security team is: War is tragic and chaotic, losing a war is the same, and that's what happened: the U.S. lost this war and needs to evacuate, the cost notwithstanding. They both reflect on their relief and general surprise that Biden has not bent to the narratives being constructed by the media and politicians on both sides of the aisle for the sake of maintaining the position of withdrawal at basically all costs. Alex partially attributes this to Biden's stubbornness borne fully out of his "Senate brain". They also remark on hypothetically what Trump would've done while he was president if push came to shove, and how it definitely doesn't square with his public remarks. They then touch upon the Supreme Court striking down the CDC's eviction moratorium, how to combat what's essentially an unaccountable judicial legislature, and the right's bizarre turn towards hawking ivermectin to their constituents as a COVID treatment. Pretty suspect that they're casting aspersions on a free vaccine but are cool with recommending to their voters they pay for a Merck-produced horse dewormer! Emma ends the first half by watching Biden hang his head at his press conference, fully perturbed by Peter Doocy's excessive nattering. Even Doocy can't make Biden change his mind on the withdrawal!</p> <p>And in the second half, Emma is joined by Lance of <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/theserfstv" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.youtube.com/theserfstv&source=gmail&ust=1630153699444000&usg=AFQjCNEFMXhfeU5MX9ebWTbRr85Ky2xMKg">The Serfs TV</a> to discuss the snap elections going on in Canada on September 20th. Lance provides a primer on Canada's parliamentary electoral system, as well as what's at stake for Trudeau, Trudeau's party the Liberals, the Conservatives, and the more progressive NDP. He continues to explain Trudeau's bristling at working with other parties, his desire to get back into a Liberal majority as a result, and how he has a strong tendency to maintain appearances and optics on thorny issues like public assistance and First Nations relations, while actively combatting them in less visible ways. Lance then continues to break down the election projections coming out of Canada's own 538, <a href= "https://338canada.com/">338,</a> why to trust the seat projections by party over total vote projections, the more peripheral parties and their outlooks heading into September, Lance's own work in assisting indigenous NDP candidates get elected to Parliament, and what is most likely in store for Canada as September 20th gets closer and closer.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half, Emma, Matt and Bradley discuss what's going on with the Line 3 pipeline protests in St. Paul, Minnesota, Jenna Ellis accusing Biden of treason for something her former boss Trump literally did (negotiate with the Taliban), Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger going on CNN's airwaves to lay blame at the feet of both Trump and Biden for the failures of the withdrawal (think you're missing a few presidents there Adam buddy!), and Trump himself calling into Hannity last night to rant about how stupid the people he literally hired, namely McMaster and John Bolton, are for how they handled Afghanistan while again, it can't be stated clearly enough, they literally worked for him, when he was the literal President of the United States.

Professor Burton and Derfner start us off by bringing us back to the first full century of this countries history, looking at how the Supreme Court of the 19th Century worked alongside the settler-colonial regime as they approved the removal of Native folks from their own land, and upheld rulings on slavery, all stemming from concepts of “ownership” that bolstered our systems of white supremacy, discussing on the Dred Scott and Lone Wolf decisions alongside treaties and cases on disenfranchisement as key examples. Emma, Armand, and Orville use this first century of SCOTUS cases to show the clear politicized role of the Court, dating back to their inception, even resulting in seemingly ahistorical decisions that sided with public opinion over critical thinking. Next, they jump up to the more recent courts, post-1970, as they supported the US’ slide into neoliberalism after forty years of progressive decisions, looking into the slow deconstruction of the Voting Rights Act, looking into how the courts of recent years both align with the original courts, in their ahistorical accounts and differ from them, particularly with the growing divide with public opinion. Lastly, they work through the middle period, from the 1930s to the 70s, and how the courts of these decades, particularly under Chief Justices Hughes and Warren, saw important decisions, even under conservative justices, emphasizing states’ responsibilities alongside their rights. Emma rounds out the free half with disturbing videos from another anti-mask PTC to James Carville making a relatively reasonable point.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Brandon, Emma, and Matt explore the problematic nature of deference to a system that has had more ex confederates than Black jurists (SCOTUS), Amber from Northern Virginia expands on the local organizing of the Right, looking into trans inclusivity policy in her state, and famously anti-war and anti-monarchy Tucker Carlson hosts the prince of war crimes Erik Prince to improv some Afghanistan tactics, using the classic journalist tactic of “yes, and-ing” your guest. Spocko from San Fran chats repercussions for falsified COVID documents, and Brandon and Dave from Jamaica emphasize how this cannot focus on punitive measures of imprisonment. They also chat Mike McKevinMcCarthy and positive coercion, plus, your calls and IMs!</p> <p>Become a member at <a href= "http://www.jointhemajorityreport.com/">JoinTheMajorityReport.com</a></p> <p>Subscribe to the AMQuickie newsletter <a href= "https://madmimi.com/signups/170390/join">here.</a></p> <p>Join the Majority Report Discord!<br /> <a href= "http://majoritydiscord.com/">http://majoritydiscord.com/</a></p> <p>Get all your MR merch at our store <a href= "https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/</a></p> <p>(Merch issues and concerns can be addressed here: <a href= "mailto:majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com</a>)</p> <p>You can now watch the livestream on <a href= "https://www.twitch.tv/themajorityreport" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Twitch</a>.</p> <p>Support the St. Vincent Nurses today as they continue to strike for a fair contract! <a href= "https://action.massnurses.org/we-stand-with-st-vincents-nurses/">https://action.massnurses.org/we-stand-with-st-vincents-nurses/</a></p> <p>Subscribe to Discourse Blog, a newsletter and website for progressive essays and related fun partly run by AM Quickie writer Jack Crosbie. <a href="https://discourseblog.com/" target= "_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://discourseblog.com/</a></p> <p>Subscribe to AM Quickie writer Corey Pein’s podcast News from Nowhere, at <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/newsfromnowhere" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://www.patreon.com/newsfromnowhere</a></p> <p>Check out The Letterhack’s upcoming Kickstarter project for his new graphic novel! <a href= "https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/milagrocomic/milagro-heroe-de-las-calles">https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/milagrocomic/milagro-heroe-de-las-calles</a></p> <p>Check out Matt Binder’s <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/mattbinder">YouTube</a> channel!</p> <p>Check out The Nomiki Show live at 3 pm ET on <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/user/KonstNomiki" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">YouTube</a> at <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/thenomikishow" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">patreon.com/thenomikishow</a></p> <p>Check out Matt’s podcast, Literary Hangover, at <a href= "https://patreon.com/LiteraryHangover" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Patreon.com/LiteraryHangover</a>, or on <a href= "https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/literary-hangover/id1392851101" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">iTunes</a>.</p> <p>Check out Jamie’s podcast, The Antifada, at <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/theantifada" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">patreon.com/theantifada</a>, on <a href= "https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-antifada/id1372879721" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">iTunes</a>, or at <a href="http://twitch.tv/theantifada" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">twitch.tv/theantifada</a> (streaming every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 7pm ET!)</p> <p>Follow the Majority Report crew on Twitter:</p> <p>@SamSeder</p> <p>@EmmaVigeland</p> <p>@MattBinder</p> <p>@MattLech</p> <p>@BF1nn</p> <p>@BradKAlsop</p>

2660 - The Reckoning Over Confederate Monuments w/ Karen L. Cox
<p>Emma hosts <a href= "https://twitter.com/drkarenlcox?lang=en" target="_blank" rel= "noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/drkarenlcox?lang%3Den&source=gmail&ust=1629916681575000&usg=AFQjCNEwUkaLbtw9yRp1DtMVOvvlJdGIgw">Karen L. Cox</a>, Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, to discuss her recent book <a href= "https://uncpress.org/book/9781469662671/no-common-ground/" target= "_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://uncpress.org/book/9781469662671/no-common-ground/&source=gmail&ust=1629916681575000&usg=AFQjCNEbQBVa_SifI_EIl6ziJFr9QU5tqA">No Common Ground: Confederate Monuments and the Ongoing Fight for Racial Justice</a>, on the history and reckoning over confederate monuments in the US. Professor Cox brings us back to the 1890s as the end of reconstruction and the southern occupation are marked by a massive uptick in the construction of these symbols of white supremacy alongside increased racial violence, lynchings, and attempts to legalize segregation and disenfranchisement. She and Emma then dive into the “lost cause” ideology that drove this re-development, looking at how journalists like Edward Pollard and groups such as the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the KKK established a massively ahistorical disinformation campaign throughout the south, with confederate monuments playing a central role in a literal sense, as they became the focal point of community social life, being erected in town squares and at courthouses. Karen and Emma then progress into the 20th century, looking at how the 1915 Birth of a Nation continued this reignition of racial violence and the role class played in the issue, before they dive into the next wave of monument erections in the 50s and 60s, discussing the murder of Sammy Younge in Tuskegee, Alabama and the changes in white supremacist rhetoric. They round out the interview with the final wave of monuments in the 2000s following a decade of legalized disenfranchisement with gerrymandering, looking at how the symbols of the “lost cause” have slowly been disconnected from actual southern heritage as well as how and why the recent reckoning over the issue has become central to American racial discourse. Emma wraps it up with the infrastructure developments and is reminded by Lindsey Graham and Kayleigh McEnany how calm cool and collected Trump’s four years were in comparison to Biden’s first.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Dennis Prager reminds us that we can’t trust our doctors, since it was really our hearts and souls that went through four years of medical school, and Dimmy Jore gives us the ivermectin pitch straight from the horses’ ass as he incorporates it into his M4A blame game, and the MR crew, alongside Danny from ATL, discuss what to do with the US military complex, and why anti-war stances are continuously demeaned by the mainstream media.

2659 - Reframing The "School Choice" Debate w/ Jon N. Hale
<p>Emma hosts <a href= "https://twitter.com/ed_organizer?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/ed_organizer?ref_src%3Dtwsrc%255Egoogle%257Ctwcamp%255Eserp%257Ctwgr%255Eauthor&source=gmail&ust=1629830540591000&usg=AFQjCNH4Lasf4ZR9M6oUXWUtI2scc5xv4A">Jon N. Hale</a>, Associate Professor of Education Policy, Organization, and Leadership at the University of Illinois, to discuss his recent book <a href= "https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/659452/the-choice-we-face-by-jon-hale/" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/659452/the-choice-we-face-by-jon-hale/&source=gmail&ust=1629830540592000&usg=AFQjCNEval5Q-0PS5PSybzGPtuzvljuFsQ">The Choice We Face: How Segregation, Race, and Power Have Shaped America's Most Controversial Education Reform Movement</a>, on the misrepresentation of the “school choice” debate at the behest of the profit motive. Professor Hale gives Emma the run down, stemming all the way back to the responses to Brown v. Board, of how the concept of “school choice” was birthed from the liberal desire to have segregation, without appearing as a segregationist, building up to the Zelman v. Harris case that approved public funding for vouchers in 2004. Next, he and Emma dive into how terms like “taxpayer” and “bussing” allowed for liberals to simply object to the interference in the “educational marketplace,” looking at how this neoliberal theory hooked into the Republican Party of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, providing the privilege to design how our school system should look to the white and wealthy when Brown v. Board was supposed to make it more equitable, before the Clintons and moderate Dems of the 90s cemented it as the system of American education. With the Gatesian influence on education in the 2000s, Emma and Jon look into how the profit motive and the drive of “efficiency” have seen a complete deflation of the American public school system over the last century, resulting in Eric Adams’ recent pitch for a 300:1 student to teacher ratio, before they touch on the inflammatory effects of the pandemic on the institution. They round out the interview by touching a little more on recent organizing for charter schools, both from white communities and communities of color, what a world that commits entirely to either public schooling OR school choice would look like, and how teachers unions have consistently been construed as the villain of the story. Emma wraps up the first half by touching on the “mod squad’s” obstructionism on behalf of their wealthy suburban constituents.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Nomiki joins as the MR crew discusses the necessary emphasis on self-determination in addressing the future of foreign policy in Afghanistan, requiring a turn away from neoliberal foreign relations and an over-reliance on elite NGOs. Teacher Lauren calls in to discuss her experiences with charter schooling and what documentaries she feels appropriately get at the issues, JD Vance pulls some Islamophobic fear-mongering right out of his ass live on Tucker Carlson, Donna Shalala calls out centrist Dems obstructionism, and Pradeep calls in from up north to remind any Canadian listeners to register to vote.

Dr. Usher and Emma use the recent media coverage on the Afghanistan withdrawal as a jumping-off point on how the media isn’t like the other girls (or the rest of us), and, frankly, loves the divide, before they into the importance of looking at the supply side of new media, as its much easier to control what your newsroom and news output look like than it is to control how it's received. Nikki and Emma look into how the current state of news media has bolstered the biggest institutions, thus limiting the geographical and financial access to the industry (largely to upper-class folks in DC and NYC), and what younger generations are doing to push back against this continued homogenization of newsrooms. Next, Dr. Usher moves into the importance of drawing from local pools of experience, not just major cities media operatives, and how that differs from engaging with the current liberal romanticization of local news outlets, and then she and Emma round out the interview with a discussion on the developments in media over the last few years, particularly in the context of their coverage of BLM and last summer’s protests, and where it still fails, particularly in its complete commitment to upholding the opinions and reporting of the US Police State, from the Pentagon’s pushback on the Afghanistan withdrawal to trusting Police Depts. to report on their own controversies. Emma wraps up the first half with updates on vaccination approval (the ever-important stamps from the FDA and DJT) and the Nabisco strike.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Emma, Matt, and Bradley chat about how entertainment’s reflections on real-life events, even when altered, can inspire important discussions, Cameron from MS asks the crew for their least favorite alt-right talking point, and they also look into the attempt by conservatives to balance wanting to BE the Taliban with their fear of Islam.

2657 - The Frayed Progress of the Biden Withdrawal, And National Security Reporters Unwillingness To Acknowledge It w/ Benjamin P. Dixon
<p>It's Casual Friday! Emma is joined by <a href= "https://twitter.com/BenjaminPDixon?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/BenjaminPDixon?ref_src%3Dtwsrc%255Egoogle%257Ctwcamp%255Eserp%257Ctwgr%255Eauthor&source=gmail&ust=1629485132743000&usg=AFQjCNGGH_Lt5zIwtKi_JOkQw0IcN1cdGQ">Benjamin P.

Emma and Ben dive into the investments that have driven the National Security journalism over the past week, and why, although Biden is anything but an antimilitarist, we should stand behind his ability to push back against military contractors and stand strong in his stance on Afghanistan withdrawal, before juxtaposing that with the added pressure we must apply to get his administration to cancel student loan debt, now that we know he’s got the legal ability to do so. Reflecting on the reactionary nature (in a good way when it comes to getting him to do what we want) of Biden and his administration, Emma and Ben move onto discussing developing booster shots amidst severe global vaccine apartheid and mask mandates as republican dig into PTA grassroots organizing, before moving onto what Haiti’s rebuild could look like following the recent disaster.

Dan “Sacrifice Your Grandma” Patrick’s Fox drop-in to blame vaccination rates on Black folks.</p> <p>In the second half of the show, Emma is joined by <a href= "https://twitter.com/danfromtheweb?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor"> Dan from the Internet</a>, host of the <a href= "https://powerreport.simplecast.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://powerreport.simplecast.com/&source=gmail&ust=1629485132743000&usg=AFQjCNG0BysHfH0lPeziPjPMaqQkl3hg-Q">Power Report</a> and <a href= "https://audioface.simplecast.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://audioface.simplecast.com/&source=gmail&ust=1629485132743000&usg=AFQjCNF5DKGM25UkMJfz_Xk-C0VD0D6VYQ">Audioface</a> podcasts, to discuss the California recall effort, and why, despite Gov Newsom's utterly problematic policy record, the effort would only work to boost Republican ability to undo any progress in CA.

Emma and her jump into the importance of self-determination, walking through her first-hand experiences in fights against SB1070, Prop 206, and even a fight for higher minimum wages in Arizona, and looking at the importance of having short terms goals in building towards a larger-scale project. They wrap up the interview reflecting on why recent movement campaigns have failed to capitalize on lingering inspiration, and explore the case study of the activism that got us prohibition.

They look into how the war on terror turned the enemies into those escaping the conditions we created, diving particularly into the parallels between the anti-sharia law policy passed in thirty different states and the current debates on Critical Race Theory in kindergarten, helping to create this apparatus of suspicion treating immigration as the vector of a national security threat. Next, Ackerman walks through the mutation of the political tool of the war on terror through the Bush years, bringing in a torture regime and normalizing violent nativism in policy, and ultimately being reaffirmed and reinforced by Obama’s attempts at “humanizing” it through drone strikes, before working through how Trump was able to capitalize on the tool. They wrap up the interview by looking into the importance of public pressure on the security apparatus, pushing Biden to end the license for US presidents to use this tool. Sam and Emma also cover general updates on the situation in Kabul as the US evacuates Afghanistan, and the state of the Delta variant as Texas Gov. Abbott has a breakthrough case get through three vaccinations.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Twigs from New Mexico calls in to discuss the importance of MR and TMBS in converting him from libertarianism, Josh from Chicago ponders where US imperialism will go next, and the WH press corps takes on the true populist stance of maintaining our military presence in Tajikistan.

2654 - The Fall of Kabul And Biden's Response: What's Next?
<p>Sam and Emma tackle a major week in news, starting with the fall of Kabul to the Taliban and the Biden administration's lackluster, finger-pointing response. They start by taking a bird's eye view of the fall of Kabul by going back to the beginning, when Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) was the sole person to vote against the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) in Afghanistan, and how far, or how little, we've come since then. Afterwards, they turn to Biden's remarks he delivered yesterday regarding what's ensued in Afghanistan in the last few weeks, noting that Biden struck the right tone, but some of the substance, namely in terms of Biden's continued adherence to American empire, was lacking. They continue combing through some of Biden's remarks, where he states firmly that the objective was not to nation build in Afghanistan, but to prevent a terrorist attack like that of 9/11 from happening again and to locate and kill Osama Bin Laden, a contention that does seem to be maximize the supposed successes of the invasion while notably minimizing the severe civilian casualties and atrocities that befell the Afghan people as a result, as well as the notable incursion into the Afghan people's everyday life for over 20 years. Biden then went onto say that he had to adhere in part to the deal that the Trump Administration struck to draw down troops by May 1st 2021 at the earliest, or risk further escalation of the conflict, as well as conceding that, in an effort to supply candor to the American people, Biden and the Administration were startled by how quickly Kabul fell. Sam and Emma, while giving some credit to Biden for his delivery and his marginally less hawkish approach to the war than Obama while he was serving as Vice President, don't buy this excuse from Biden, given that there's seemingly no universe where he didn't know that this was coming, and to completely shift blame onto Prime Minister Ashraf Ghani, who fled the country as a result of the invasion, and the Afghan military, completely excludes the role of the American military in this debacle. They end on observing how some of the members of the media responded to the remarks, with Nicolle Wallace making a shockingly cogent point regarding how people and the members of the press might have disproportionate responses to the remarks, while Tucker Carlson pivots to his favorite thing: blaming the P.C. mob for literally any world event.</p> <p>And in the fun half, the gang is joined as always on Tuesday afternoons by <a href= "https://twitter.com/NomikiKonst?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor"> Nomiki Konst</a>. The whole MR crew discuss at length the tragic story of <a href= "https://news.sky.com/story/covid-19-devastated-familys-plea-after-death-of-lawyer-who-refused-to-get-coronavirus-vaccine-12377315"> Leslie Laurenson</a>, a 58-year old British man who died of COVID very recently, and who, due to numerous influences online, notably the commentary of Bret Weinstein, refused to get the vaccine and was actively skeptical of them as a result. Sam, Matt, Nomi, and Emma dissect the fraudulence and cowardice of Weinstein's positions, where him and his cohort essentially propagate lies and misinformation but, when push comes to shove in terms of real and tangible outcomes as a result of their rhetoric, they shy away from any semblance of accountability and crow that people should know better than to take them *that* seriously. And finally, the gang would be remiss if they didn't cover Chris Cuomo's return from vacation and his hasty inability to truly own up to his complicity in advising his disgraced brother Andrew while actively covering his tenure as Governor when ostensibly fawning praise was in order, but never when Governor Cuomo actually had to face the music. The gang discuss how CNN botched the handling of this and how they could've initiated a real recusal for Chris with some teeth, as well as Chris's dissembling on air basically amounting to "I NEVER advised my brother, but when I DID advise him, I was SORRY about it. He's my BROTHER after all." They end on the curious phenomenon of the younger Cuomo brother searching his name to lambast other reporters that say mean things about him, as he did to <a href= "https://twitter.com/Tori_Bedford/status/1427637064011591702">Tori Bedford</a> of GBH in 2018 and to Nomi herself a while back as well.

<p>Sam and Emma host <a href= "https://twitter.com/etshermer?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/etshermer?ref_src%3Dtwsrc%255Egoogle%257Ctwcamp%255Eserp%257Ctwgr%255Eauthor&source=gmail&ust=1628967927252000&usg=AFQjCNFcyM_DlCPxw5HCerT9lpt2AhvSYQ">Elizabeth Tandy Shermer</a>, Associate Professor of History at Loyola Chicago University, to discuss her new book <a href= "https://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674251489" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn%3D9780674251489&source=gmail&ust=1628967927252000&usg=AFQjCNFhf6JYvMs-6UkU8KgaTni4W1GjSA">Indentured Students: How Government-Guaranteed Loans Left Generations Drowning In College Debt</a>, which tackles the exploitative nature of US student loan programs dating back to their origin, setting up the generational wealth and debt divides we see today. After situating the crisis within the contexts of tuitions in the 60s, 80s, and today, Sam, Emma, and Elizabeth jump off of the first work-study programs introduced in the 60s, and how their nature was tied deeply to the Civil Rights Act. They dive into higher education as a battleground for a desegregated society, particularly following the success of Soviet science, with the Higher Education Act following the CRA in an effort to promote the enrollment of women and people of color, especially after the addition of Title IX in ’72. Next, they look at how the US student loan program found its structure in New Deal housing programs, which, while appearing progressive, ultimately put a product that cannot be repossessed, with the only guarantee going to bankers, into a “social welfare” program, bolstering the preexisting generational wealth and debt stratification. They conclude the interview by looking at the role of college, both in terms of their exploitation of students and how the US State has slowly shifted more and more responsibility their way, even as they become central in the progression of US medical technology, before they move onto what Biden could do in the latter stage of his presidency, including looking into both the preexisting policy initiatives in the Infrastructure package, and the potential of a College for All bill presenting a public competitor. Sam and Emma round out the free half by reflecting on the US failure that was the Afghanistan war, and the attempt of the US media and politicians to present this as anything but another “Saigon Moment.”</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: The MR crew discusses the behind the scenes stupidity and exploitation of Venture Capitalism, the fear-based relationship between the Biden Administration and the concept of immigration – even when it comes to Afghani refugees – and reflect on the roles of Trump and Pompeo in the Afghanistan pull out. John from AZ calls in to explore the relationship between inflation and wages, and Bill from MI jumps delves into the effect of wage stagnation on teachers, especially as the Republican war on Critical Race Theory picks up, before the staff admires the beauty of Timba.On.Toast’s dive into the deep end of Tim Pool’s inner functioning. They also touch on Dennis Prager’s takes on child abuse, Dave from Jamaica talks imperialism and Afghanistan, and Ian from FL calls in from Matt Gaetz’s district to chat about the impossibility of changing Pensacola politics, plus, your calls and IMs!</p> <p>Become a member at <a href= "http://www.jointhemajorityreport.com/">JoinTheMajorityReport.com</a></p> <p>Subscribe to the AMQuickie newsletter <a href= "https://madmimi.com/signups/170390/join">here.</a></p> <p>Join the Majority Report Discord!<br /> <a href= "http://majoritydiscord.com/">http://majoritydiscord.com/</a></p> <p>Get all your MR merch at our store <a href= "https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/</a></p> <p>(Merch issues and concerns can be addressed here: <a href= "mailto:majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com</a>)</p> <p>You can now watch the livestream on <a href= "https://www.twitch.tv/themajorityreport" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Twitch</a></p> <p>Check out today’s sponsors:</p> <p><strong>Stitcher Premium-Hell of Presidents</strong>: From Washington to Biden, Hell of Presidents is telling the history of the United States through the office of the presidency, all in the irreverent Chapo Trap House style. Hell of Presidents is available exclusively on Stitcher Premium.

2652 - The Inevitable Fall of Afghanistan And The Politics Of Coercion In The Vaccine Culture War w/ Ben Burgis
<p>It's Casual Friday! Sam and Emma host <a href= "https://twitter.com/BenBurgis?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://twitter.com/BenBurgis?ref_src%3Dtwsrc%255Egoogle%257Ctwcamp%255Eserp%257Ctwgr%255Eauthor&source=gmail&ust=1628943232431000&usg=AFQjCNEJgBco11-uQK36CSL7YmK3QJXDlw">Ben Burgis</a>, columnist at Jacobin, host of <a href= "https://www.youtube.com/BenBurgisGTAA" target="_blank" rel= "noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.youtube.com/BenBurgisGTAA&source=gmail&ust=1628943232431000&usg=AFQjCNEbWeT2C_Vc4RfLe7vbbJBnJlhuSg">Give Them An Argument With Ben Burgis</a>, and author of <a href= "https://www.johnhuntpublishing.com/zer0-books/our-books/canceling-comedians-while-world-burns">Canceling Comedians While the World Burns: A Critique of the Contemporary Left,</a> to cover the top stories of the week. Ben, Sam, and Emma start off with a discussion on the developments in Afghanistan as the Taliban sweeps through, taking up control as the US evacuates, before they jump back to the decisions that led us there. They walk through the original choice to invade Afghanistan, rather than work with a Taliban surrender and find ways to diplomatically get their hands on Osama Bin Laden, only to pull resources out and move towards Iraq within a year and a half, keeping Afghanistan on the border of disarray for well over a decade until we let it fall back into Taliban hands. Sam and Ben look into the unlikelihood of US leaders learning from the failures of military intervention, before they move onto discussions of what Republicans have constituted as “authoritarian” and how that has changed over the last two decades, largely as a function of what party is implementing the policies. Starting with the post-9/11 Bush-era policy, and working through reactions to Obama’s handling of Ebola, Sam, Ben, and Emma explore how Republicans have sponsored countless invasive policies only to draw the line at one life-or-death vaccine. After discussing the importance of both recognizing and implementing legitimate coercion in the face of the pandemic, they wrap up the interview by touching on the developments on the infrastructure and reconciliation bills, and the state of progressive leverage heading into the final votes. Sam and Emma round out the first half with updates on the Delta variant, as Fl, OR, AR, MS, and LA all reach record hospitalizations, while MTG and Republicans continue to tout misinformation and Americans are forced out of hospitals.</p> <p>And in the Fun Half: Sam drums up some beef with old colleagues Tom Scharpling and Jon Benjamin, Louie Gohmert pours one out for the birds (but the “one” is “fossil fuels” and “for the birds” is “on the birds”), and Emma trashes on radio as Sam defends the medium made for his face. Next, the crew admires Bar Rescue’s Jon Taffer’s willingness to focus on Bars, and let other people worry about his employees well being, as he and Laura Ingraham promote treating our workforce like dogs while the pandemic ramps up. The show gets two Joshes (from MD and PA, respectively) to give updates on the state of their states, and the latter inquires about the potential of fiction authors coming onto the show. They also discuss factors that promote new variants and get some high-level important ideas, plus, your calls and IMs!</p> <p>Become a member at <a href= "http://www.jointhemajorityreport.com/">JoinTheMajorityReport.com</a></p> <p>Subscribe to the AMQuickie newsletter <a href= "https://madmimi.com/signups/170390/join">here.</a></p> <p>Join the Majority Report Discord!<br /> <a href= "http://majoritydiscord.com/">http://majoritydiscord.com/</a></p> <p>Get all your MR merch at our store <a href= "https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">https://shop.majorityreportradio.com/</a></p> <p>(Merch issues and concerns can be addressed here: <a href= "mailto:majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">majorityreportstore@mirrorimage.com</a>)</p> <p>You can now watch the livestream on <a href= "https://www.twitch.tv/themajorityreport" target="_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Twitch</a></p> <p>Check out today’s sponsor:</p> <p><strong>sunsetlakecbd</strong> is a majority employee owned farm in Vermont, producing 100% pesticide free CBD products.
