EPISODE 9: Katie Kahn joins me to critique Alex Lee Moyer's new documentary on Alex Jones, Alex's War. She attempts to convince me that it doesn't go deep enough and largely succeeds. We also chat about dissident culture, inevitably gossiping about Red Scare, which is like the Godwin's Law of 2022.Topics include:Katie's personal knowledge of Bohemian Grove.Alex Jones' strange cast of supporting characters including protege Owen Shroyer and chief bullhorn operator Ali Alexander. The stories the documentary omits, like Alex's supplement shilling, alcoholism, new wife, recent divorce, and legal framing as a “performance artist.” Comparisons to Netflix's Get Me Roger Stone, which explored Stone's penchant for orgies.NYC and San Francisco reuniting after decades of cultural separation. Osama bin Laden and why we had foreknowledge about 9/11 before it happened (Also mis-stating that Dar Es Salaam is in Sudan; it's in Tanzania.)Werner Herzog's ability to reveal complex characters by letting the camera linger, and why Alex's War doesn't do that. Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza's ridiculous intellectual justifications: “efilism” and “eulavism” as discussed by Default Friend.Sam Hyde's recent massive trolling of YouTube dork iDubbbz.Peter Thiel peoples' transformation from the khaki-wearing uncool kids of San Francisco to the edgy culture warriors of NYC.Follow Katie Kahn on Twitter or Substack.

Ali Alexander 36 year old, half Black, half Arab Republican political consultant for the past 15 years.Co-founded the Tea Party Movement in 2009; founded the Stop the Steal protest movementHelped organize peaceful, permitted events with Trump on January 6thNow the target of the Biden administration and Pelosi's Jan 6 Select CommitteeLost all of his social media channels, payment processors, been subpoenaed 3 times by Democrats, over $100,000 in legal debtLegal Defense Fundhttps://givesendgo.com/alialexander January 6th lawfareMultimillion civil lawsuit brought by several US Capitol Officers with Marxist lawyers under the KKK Act (ironic). Trump, Ali, Roger Stone and other co-defendants. Trump v. Smith Subpoenaed twice by the Jan 6 Select Committee for documents and testimony. One of the longest depositions with 8 hours under oath in December.Ali is suing Pelosi and the Committee for overly broad subpoenas. Alexander v. PelosiBiden's DOJ subpoenaed Ali in April to testify before a Federal Grand Jury probing the GOP alternate electors and financing for Jan 5 and 6th permitted events.
THE THESIS: The corruption that allowed Jan 6 to become a full-blown riot is the same corruption that allowed Black Lives Matter, Inc. and Antifa to run wild. It is the same corruption that pimped the Russia hoax, the Ukraine bribe hoax, it is the same corruption that allows the so called Attorney General to announce he will not respect the Supreme Court's ruling on Roe Vs. Wade. Which is worse, Jan 6 or Joe Biden's corruption? They are one and the same. THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES: Psalm 46:10 10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Luke 8:16-18 - A Lamp on a Stand 16 “No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. 17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. 18 Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them.” THE NEWS & COMMENT: Frightened people make terrible decisions and, on every front, The Party is purposefully terrifying people into taking insane actions. How Trauma Became a Political Tool [AUDIO - Cassidy Hutchinson testifies that she was told that as then-President Donald Trump was being driven back to the White House after the Jan. 6 rally that he demanded to be taken to the Capitol and tried to grab the steering wheel from a Secret Service agent. Multiple Reporters: Secret Service to Dispute J6 Committee Star Witness; Maybe you shouldn't rely on hearsay. [AUDIO] - Plenty of videos of Alex Jones and Ali Alexander urging the crowd *away* from the Capitol Building. They had a permit for speeches in front of the Supreme Court. Pay attention to who leaves this all out Now, we need retired FBI to do the same! Ray Epps was apparently talking about a “plan” and was worried that the crowd would “screw it up.” But, good ole Ray is not in jail and not being prosecuted. Gee . . . I wonder why that is? EXCLUSIVE: Ray Epps Was Worried Fast-Moving January 6 Crowd Might Interfere With ‘The Plan,' Kentucky Man Claims [AUDIO] - Michael Stenger testified that there [MAY HAVE BEEN] paid professional agitators on January 6th. Now he's dead… Julie Kelly on how the FBI went after John Eastman's phone: “American Gestapo.” [AUDIO] - Voicemail from Joe Biden to Hunter saying he wants to discuss their China business deals. CONTEXT: NEW: In 2018, Joe Biden left a voicemail for Hunter saying he wanted to talk to him about a New York Times report on Hunter's business deals in China. Biden repeatedly said he “never discussed” business with Hunter. [AUDIO] - Hunter pleading with a Russian escort after paying her with $10,000 that appears to have come from Joe Biden The two men who were arrested with 150,000 fentanyl pills in Tulare, CA on Friday have been released from custody on their own recognizance as a result of a court order from a judge following a "risk assessment". The Sheriff "strongly disagrees" with their release. - Bill Melugin, FOX News, LA It's not “just” CRT and the false idea of “transgenderism” that is being used to destroy the military, it's the prepping of the environment for rule by “medical” technocrats. 14,000 Army Guard Troops Could Be Axed Thursday for Refusing COVID Vax Retirees from the CDC and the FDA have got to speak truth: Pfizer, the FDA, the CDC and their supplicants in the Mockingbird Media lied about the mRNA staying in the injection site (why ANYONE believed that is beyond me). Pfizer documents: A Tissue Distribution Study of a [3H]-Labelled Lipid Nanoparticle-mRNA (LNP) Formulation Following Intramuscular Administration in Wistar Han Rats; dramatic increases in ovaries; Table 1, page 23 shows Total Lipid Concentration at 48 hours; very ELEVATED LNP concentrations in adrenals, injection site, liver, ovaries, bone marrow; ovaries dramatic increases 0.25 min to 48 hours The injections are leading to more Covid and more deaths. Yes, this is from Canada, but American's biology is not different from that of Canadians: Uh-Oh, what is happening in Canada? Access to information (FOI) request Shows the More Covid Injections, then the More Hospitalizations and the More Deaths; supports Trudeau's 4 shots yet infection; Canadian data clearly show that the Covid-19 gene injections have a dose-response: the more doses = the more infections = the more cases = the more hospitalizations = the more deaths. And, the people in the food supply chain had better start speaking up. They are planning a man-made food crisis so Bill Gates and Monsanto can leap in to “help.” Northern Ireland's new climate act will require removal of 500K cows, 700K sheep and 5M chickens to meet net-zero for methane, CH4. But this food is grown on rough grassland where farm crops can't be grown. Looks like they will have to remove people too! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Felon Ali Aziz Akbar (nom de plume Ali Alexander) was popular with Jack Posobiec, Mike Cernovich, and other MAGA era influencers. Did money ever exchange hands in return for favorable coverage of Aziz Akbar, and his fundraising activities? Was there some kind of pay for play scheme at work here in the weeks leading up to January 6th? This is what investigators need to ask as they review the relevant data. Ali Aziz Akbar photographed with several influencers and friends in an undated photo. The Washington Post and others are reporting that Aziz Akbar, who reportedly created Stop the Steal LLC, is now being scrutinized by investigators. Hopefully we learn more in the days and weeks ahead.

Part 2 of Bob's conversation with author Anne Nelson about the Council for National Policy, which has spent decades exploiting bugs in the system to gain minority control of our politics — and our future.* TRANSCRIPT *TEDDY ROOSEVELT: Surely, there never was a fight better worth making than the one in which we are in.GARFIELD: Welcome to Bully Pulpit. That was Teddy Roosevelt, I'm Bob Garfield. With Episode 21, “The 60 Year Coup: Part Two.” DONALD TRUMP: Together, we're committed to protecting the American people, preserving American values, defending America's heritage, and keeping America safe, strong, prosperous, and free.GARFIELD: That was Donald Trump, hat in tiny hand, singing for his supper before the Council for Domestic Policy, the umbrella group of evangelical Christians and big energy interests, that for decades has been the patient and ruthless architect of the great right wing conspiracy. In last week's episode I spoke to Anne Nelson, research scholar at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University, and author of Shadow Network: Media Money and the Secret Hub of the Radical Right. In part two of our conversation, we'll consider the powerful synergy of CNP and a pathological demagog and the destruction that that synergy wrought. Anne, welcome back.NELSON: Thank you.GARFIELD: All right. Let's now turn to the more-or-less present: the rise of Trump and the now violent assault on democracy. How was CNP involved in Trump's ascent?NELSON: The CNP was involved with Trump, initially, very reluctantly. He wasn't one of them, he had no particular religious background, he was multiply divorced, and he really didn't reflect their values in many ways. Their favored candidate was Ted Cruz, but they had a problem - which was that Cruz had a tremendous charisma deficit, and as he lost the primaries, they realized that either they supported Trump, the primary victor, or they lived with Hillary Clinton's presidency, which was unacceptable to them.GARFIELD: Oh, I - I'm sorry, I just - I just have to interrupt to remind you what then Senator Al Franken (laughs) said about Cruz.AL FRANKEN: I probably like him more than most of my other colleagues like Ted, and I hate him (laughs).NELSON: That is the case. Cruz is a formidable intelligence and strategist. He was not a winning candidate outside Texas. So the fundamentalists convened something, like, a thousand leaders and representatives in New York City in June of 2016 at the Times Square Marriott. They brought Trump out to parade him before them, and they had a number of leaders from the Council for National Policy there on the program. And publicly, what that event was about was to sell Trump to this thousand fundamentalist leaders, many of whom had been Never Trumpers, and they were like, “This is going to be your guy. You need to go home and tell your flocks that this is the plan.” But the second part of that agenda involved meetings where they cut a deal with Trump. They said, “You don't have a war chest, you don't have ground troops for the election canvassing, you don't have a strategy. And all indications are you're going to get creamed.” So we have all three of those that we can put into your service. But in return -GARFIELD: We have a shopping list. NELSON: We have a shopping list, and it's basically got three items. The first one was enact some of our policies by executive orders. So when suddenly the Republican platform has this new anti-trans, anti LGBT language that was literally written by the president of the Council for National Policy, Tony Perkins, Trump enacted the anti-trans policy for the Pentagon against the Pentagon's wishes, which, you know, the Pentagon said, “This is disruptive of our operations and trans people are not a problem,” but Trump had to deliver on his deal. The second part was to create an evangelical advisory council. Obama had a religious advisory council, but it included Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Muslims. This one was 100% Protestant, and none of these other religions needed to apply. The leadership of this council were in and out of the White House on policy discussions and photo ops on a weekly basis. The third was by far the most important, far reaching, and devastating to our democracy. And that was when they got Trump to agree that any federal judges he nominated would be approved from a list that was submitted by three organizations run by members of the Council for National Policy. These were the Federalist Society, the Heritage Foundation, and the National Rifle Association. Now, what business the NRA has in recommending federal judge nominations? I do not know, but that's how it played out, and after his first confirmation, he invited the representatives of these groups, most of them from the Council for National Policy, for a little victory luncheon at the White House.GARFIELD: So that was the origin story of Trump's deal with the devil, a man with not only no religion, but no ideology to speak of creating himself in the image of his political and financial sponsors. Over the ensuing - well, so then he was elected, more or less - and then over the ensuing four years, many of Trump's 30,000 lies, big and small, find their provenance, what do you know, in the CNP. So, can we just tick a few of these off beginning with the COVID hoax, and the savior drug hydroxychloroquine?NELSON: So if you get to the beginning of 2020, the Trump campaign is in trouble and the Council for National Policy recognizes it. They had hoped that the 2020 elections would be won with a popular vote, that was cast into doubt. COVID set in a couple of months later, and the whole strategy of the Trump campaign had been built around mass rallies and data harvesting from attendees of the rallies and building on that to secure a victory. Well, mass rallies became impossible because of COVID restrictions, so there was a critical phone call that involved the president of the Council for National Policy and members of the Trump campaign staff, where they said, “We need to open up society, get the economy roaring again, and people are afraid of COVID, but they trust doctors. We have a group of doctors who will say that COVID is a hoax, will argue for the reopening of society and the mass rallies.” So that summer, these doctors were convened by Jenny Beth Martin in Washington. Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots and a leading figure in the Council for National Policy. At that point, the point person - when Dr. Simone Gold announced that hydroxychloroquine was a cure for COVID - she was put on partner media platforms of the CNP, including the Charlie Kirk Show and the Christian Broadcasting Network, spreading this disinformation SIMONE GOLD: With the tyranny of medical apartheid nipping at our heels, rise up. Rise up. Rise up.NELSON: And that has now expanded into a small army of unethical physicians who are continuing the hydroxychloroquine hoax. They've added ivermectin as a cure and, in fact, they have online prescription services charging money to people who are ordering ivermectin as a COVID cure.JAKE TAPPER: Poison control centers are reporting that their calls are spiking in places like Mississippi and Oklahoma because some Americans are trying to use an anti parasite horse drug called ivermectin to treat coronavirus, to prevent contracting coronavirus. What would you tell someone who is considering taking that drug?FAUCI: Don't do it.NELSON: There's no evidence that it helps against COVID and, in fact, there are several cases of deaths. Not just from COVID and the failed approach of ivermectin, but people taking overdoses of ivermectin. At the same time, they're discouraging vaccination, and the purpose that lies behind this is, I believe, to discredit any federal agency, to discredit the CDC and the NIH, and to have their followers distrust any kind of fact based authority. Whether it's science, whether it's professional journalism, whether it's federal agencies, and work them into this stoked anger and frustration that is then politically mobilized, and so is chaos.GARFIELD: And not just because they're elites and look down at the silent majority, as Nixon called Middle America, but because there is a vast conspiracy to make money for Bill Gates or to turn children against their country, or to put right wing political dissidents into concentration camps or, you know, whatever the crazy talk is. It wasn't enough just to make people suspicious of - of expertise and authority, but to brainwash them that they were actually active enemies of the people.NELSON: I would say that the strength of the Council for National Policy is to figure out what I call the raw nerves of our culture and to further inflame them. So right now, parents - with kids in public schools - are stressed on so many levels. Are the schools open or are they not open? Are there mandates? Are there not mandates? Can working mothers go to work if their kids aren't in school? Right? These are real, real issues. And then you put on top of that our very difficult conversation nationally about race. When the Black Lives Matter protests happened, the way that the CNP's media and other media systems played it was, “these are violent riots,” and they cherry picked photos of buildings and flame and violence in the streets and amplified it and exaggerated it. These were not invented or doctored photos, these things happened, it's just that they happened as very, very few cases and very small percentage of the peaceful protests. But that's not what their audience saw.TUCKER CARLSON: This may be a lot of things this moment we're living through, but it is definitely not about black lives. And remember that when they come for you, and at this rate, they will.NELSON: Their audience saw these violent images repeated across multiple media platforms. Then they saw it repeated on Fox News and Sinclair stations. They heard it referred to on the fundamentalist radio stations. That makes all of these appeals for advancing racial justice sound to them like condoning violence.MAN: The black thugs are burning our cities down.NELSON: So we have a real problem in this country with these parallel media systems that don't reflect the same reality. And I really do fault a lot of the more prestigious media organizations and companies and corporations that have allowed the local news media in the middle of the country to die off. And all too often, the answer is, “Oh well, The New York Times and The Washington Post are national news organizations and they've increased their circulations.” That does not fulfill the need for the trust and the hometown newspaper that reflects the local interests and values. And that's something that urgently needs to be addressed.GARFIELD: All right. Indulge me once again, please, in a brief pause to remind you what's happening here. Bully pulpit and the other Booksmart studio shows are here for you, specifically for an audience of listeners who value curiosity, skepticism, dimension, rigor, scope, and an honest argument about things that matter.

We were ticking off the list of CNC successes: abortion rights and marriage equality. Tell me what they accomplished there.NELSON: Well, abortion has been a particular interest of theirs. And ironically, as of the 1970s, southern Protestants were not that far away from everyone else in terms of opinions on abortion policy. And I would say that there's been consistently general agreement that abortion in the first trimester for various reasons is regrettable, but acceptable. Abortion in the third trimester should be only under the most extreme circumstances. That reflects the reality. But what happened in the years following Roe vs. Wade, people connected to the Leadership Institute and other Council for National Policy partners realized that there was a way to play this and again to mobilize these Protestants in a new way. They found a term, partial birth abortion, which does not exist in medicine. You know, it's an invented term, but it is a term that evokes a very visceral response. And they found that if they told their audiences that Democrats supported partial birth abortion, they could use this as a wedge issue. Then they built on that, and this is all about emotion. This is not about medicine. This is not about scientific fact. They created these videos, which I've seen, which show animated drawings of so-called abortions. And of course, they had to use animated drawings because they were not based in reality, of the abortionist reaching into the womb and tearing the fetus apart limb by limb. And they showed these in church sanctuaries as part of their organizing activities.GARFIELD: And who is the “they” in this “they”?NELSON: So the Council for National Policy works with various groups connected to religious organizations. One of them is the Family Research Council. The Family Research Council has what they call a ministry of pastors that is a national organization that claims tens of thousands of pastors across the country. And this group is called Watchman on the Wall. They have an entire film and video production enterprise, as well as voter guides that are placed in the church bulletins. These churches, these Protestant churches, they may be fundamentalist, they may be Pentecostal, et cetera, have been an untapped voting block. And this is how they've tried to mobilize them, and they've done so with a great deal of success. They've accessed church directories through this organization, compared it to voting rosters, organized Get Out the Vote drives in these churches and even driven the Republican voters to the polls from the church. And the most recent development of this has been the language, “birth day abortion on demand.” And they claim that Democrats approve the execution of newborn healthy babies.JACKIE WALORSKI: That's why we need to be able to vote on H.R. 962, the Born Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act. I've long fought to defend the unborn. I'm shocked that we are now defending the right to life of newborn infants, and it's something that we have to stand together. This is extreme.GARFIELD: That was Republican Indiana Congresswoman Jackie Walorski.NELSON: So the idea of birth day abortion is that a woman has her full term child healthy nine month pregnancy, and she changes her mind and can go into an abortion clinic and say, “Terminate it now.” And that's just not - that doesn't exist. But, “birth day abortion on demand” is the slogan they're selling and people buy it.GARFIELD: And the president of the Family Research Council?NELSON: Tony Perkins, and by the way, “birth day abortion” is a phrase that's been used not only by Ted Cruz, but by Donald Trump as well.GARFIELD: Well, you can knock me over with a feather. NELSON: And by the way, as part of my research I get mailings from the Family Research Council that shows the rosy cheeked little newborn baby saying,”Democrats want to kill this baby.”GARFIELD: And as Roe v. Wade stands very much in jeopardy before the court, Trump appointees Barrett, and Kavanaugh, and Gorsuch are certainly not expected to be abortion rights warriors in the judicial debate.NELSON: Well, let's remember that all three of the Trump appointed judges were chosen from the list provided by Council for National Policy Affiliates. So there was definitely a litmus test involved there. The challenge to the Texas law is whether individual citizens can serve as vigilantes in enforcing the law. And so, it's not clear how abortion rights will be determined on a legal basis moving forward, but I would say that they are certainly more under threat than they've been since Roe vs. Wade.GARFIELD: All right, let's get now to the apotheosis of right wing conspiracy, and that is Stop the Steal and the insurrection that flowed from it. It all began with attempts by the council to suppress minority votes leading up to the 2020 presidential election, and eventually mutated into creating suspicion and rage over a supposedly rigged election. As I understand it, there is smoking gun evidence that this pivot to questioning the election results was planned at the CNP before the election ever took place.NELSON: The way I describe it is that a year in advance of the elections, when the CNP realized that Trump's reelection was not a done deal, they over time develop Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, Plan D, Plan E. Plan A was he wins the popular vote in the Electoral College. Great. Plan B was he loses the popular vote, as he did in 2016, but he wins the Electoral College. And his majority in the Electoral College was a matter of some seventy seven thousand votes in three states, the equivalent of a not very big town, (laughs) right? He won by a narrow margin, in terms of the Electoral College, against losing three million votes in the popular vote. Plan B was a repeat of 2016, but then the Electoral College started to come into question and they were losing certain critical states. So they said, “Well, how do we keep him in power if he loses the popular vote and the Electoral College?” That's when they began to explore ways that they could challenge fraud in the election, get Republican legislatures to substitute their own electors, as opposed to those that resulted from the state election -GARFIELD: To literally subvert the election process.NELSON: Well, it would counteract the electoral process, but it turns out that in our constitution, our elderly constitution, there is a clause that involves the independent state legislature doctrine, where the founders said, “maybe you can't trust the voters and the state legislature needs to step in when there are charges of fraud.” So there were these moments of tension after the election and pressures on state officials, including Republican state officials, but they just were not able to implement it soon enough. Then the next step in our electoral process was the certification of the Electoral College votes, January 6th. In the weeks leading up to this date, Ali Alexander was starting the Stop the Steal movement; he had been on the roster of the Council for National Policy. Ginni Thomas, who is in a leadership position, wife of Clarence Thomas, tweeted her support for the January 6th protest. Charlie Kirk tweeted that his organization would be sending protesters to Washington on January 6th. I believe that the House Investigatory Committee will be coming out with a lot more details on this, but what is obvious is that the CNP was actively supporting the events of January 6th. We don't know how many of them, and how far they were going, but I will say that Jenny Beth Martin, the Tea Party Patriots co-founder and a - and a very active leader in the CNP, was on the program for January 6th. And Simone Gold, the doctor leading the hydroxychloroquine hoax, made the incursion into the Capitol, and she has recently been named a member of the CNP and has been leading anti-vaccination rallies in critical states. So they're all over the event.GARFIELD: And then there was Cleta Mitchell, who was a former Oklahoma politician, who was in the thick of Trump's attempts to get state officials, notably in Georgia, to audit their elections and dig up the votes that would be required to overturn the Biden victory.NELSON: Yeah. Dig up or create, (laughs) or -GARFIELD: Here Mitchell is infamously on the phone with Trump and Georgia state officials. TRUMP: You have all these different people that - that voted, but they don't live in Georgia anymore. Uh, that was that number, Cleta, it was a pretty good number too. MITCHELL: Well, the - the number that - the number who had registered out of state after they moved from Georgia. Um, and so they - they had a date when they moved from Georgia. They registered to vote out of state, and then they - it's like forty five hundred. I don't have that right in front of me, but it's something like that - TRUMP: And then they came back in and they voted!GARFIELD: And Mitchell has CNP ties, no?NELSON: Oh yes, she's a longtime member and she's an astute lawyer who knows a lot about election law, which makes her especially adept at subverting it. She's been a specialist in terms of their strategy, and she's still going strong.GARFIELD: All right, so here we are. At this critical juncture for the future of American democracy. And, you know, we can draw a straight line back to the late 70s, early 80s and the convergence of fossil fuel interests like the Koch brothers, and the then nascent religious right. Does that alliance still represent the core of CNP?NELSON: The religious right and the fossil fuel interests are very, very powerful in the CNP, and I think that what's really happened is that they have converted the religious right into basically a political organization. The longer they go, there's less recognizable religion, and some of the trappings of some sects of Christianity are used as recruitment measures. But (laughs), I would say it's far more political than spiritual in nature, and in some ways it's ferociously intolerant.GARFIELD: It is now increasingly understood that Christian nationalists are way more nationalists than they are Christian, that they're - they're nativists and they're often explicitly white supremacist, and that the Christian part is just sort of a - a way to get their foot in the door for really ugly nationalism.NELSON: I have esteemed colleagues who use the term Christian nationalist. I don't favor it because ultimately a lot of the people we're talking about are voters, and there are a lot of people who are being misled and lied to and don't have a clear ideology. They might be working class people, they might be rural people, and farmers who are in information starved environments. So assuming they are operating from an ideology when they're actually acting from a deeply flawed information environment, it may mean that you - you lose the chance to connect with them and to engage and talk to them.GARFIELD: Well, I hear you, and certainly the news desert that has formed in many communities that hitherto were well-served by local newspapers and other outlets has contributed to the dominance of right wing media and social media in feeding misinformation and disinformation to the - the civically and politically undereducated, right? On the other hand, you know, cops, bunco squad cops, people who investigate frauds on individuals. Historically, they don't show a whole lot of sympathy for the people who get conned because they think that they were predisposed to try to get something for nothing.EDDIE JONES: Grifters got an irresistible urge to be the guy who's wise. There's nothing to whippin a fool. Hell, fools are made to be whipped.GARFIELD: Don't you think that these fascist emotions reside deep in the nerve roots of the society, and some people are just predisposed to be propagandized to and to be demagogued?NELSON: Hmm, interesting question. I think every society has aberrations in many of its pockets. And if somebody is a true psychopath, you don't want to put them in a position of power (laughs), you know? And when you have violent dictatorships, that's often what happens - is psychopaths and their allies achieve positions of power and have their way with the population. But otherwise, I do believe in the incredible power of propaganda, and one thing that breaks my heart is that these people are preyed upon from their better instincts. They want those little babies - those little newborn babies to live. That's a kindness. And if they're being told, I mean, if I were told that Democrats wanted to execute all the newborn babies, I would abhor that as well. It's just not true.GARFIELD: No, they only want to execute a relatively small percentage of the newborn babies.NELSON: (laughs) But when they're being blanketed by their media systems with this and surrounded by people who are repeating these things, you know, it's all confirmation bias, right? GARFIELD: Yes. NELSON: Then they don't have much of a shot at the correction. And as you said, the news deserts are a huge part of this.JOHN OLIVER: The newspaper industry today is in big trouble. Papers have been closing and downsizing for years, and that affects all of us. Even if you only get your news from Facebook, Google, Twitter or Arianna Huffington's block quote junction and book excerpt clearinghouse, those places are often just repackaging the work of newspapers. And it is not just websites.NELSON: When I was growing up in Oklahoma, our newspaper had, in our small town, had a substantial circulation percentage wise, and the front pages carried stories from The Associated Press, and the New York Times Syndicate, and people were more or less working from the same page of facts and reporting. Now that newspaper is struggling to survive and many of the other newspapers in the state have gone under. And what has rushed in to fill that breach are these right wing radio talk shows, Sinclair, Fox, all of these organizations that are not working according to basic journalistic principles. I see it as a huge part of the problem.GARFIELD: I think it's fair to say the various tentacles of the Council for National Policy, arm in arm with Trump, have entirely taken over the Republican Party, or nearly entirely. There are a few so-called moderates remaining. I don't know how moderate they are, but I guess they're not Trumpistas. Now, with the understanding that you can't fight napalm with rhetoric, I ask you this very basic question: Where the f**k have the Democrats been for four decades while this has been going on? Why haven't they built machines to fight, you know, Koch brothers dark money to win in legislatures, to play the long game the way these right wingers have? Why aren't they using software so cleverly? Why aren't they finding new ways to educate and inspire voters? Where the hell have they been?NELSON: I think following the triumphs of the Democrats, you know, with the New Deal, they thought they'd identified their MO's and they were relying on trade unions, and they were relying on the major media to tell their story correctly. And they also became complacent regarding demographics. They could point to the numbers and say it's clear that the United States is becoming younger, more diverse, both racially and religiously, and all of that works in our favor. That was true. It left them playing defense, and on the other side, they said, “All right, so in order to snatch victory away from the demographics, we have to work twice as hard, be twice as smart, and have a plan that truly understands the actual mechanics of our government, not the aspirational ones.” A lot of people in the United States still think that we've got a democracy that rests on the popular vote. That is simply not the case. Our system is a patchwork. Much of it's obsolete. The role of the state legislatures and the differentials in the election law from state to state, oh my goodness, it takes years of study to even understand how it works, and it doesn't work the way you were told it worked in your civics class. It's much more complex and manipulable than certainly I thought in the past. So I see signs that Democrats are starting to take data more seriously. The Koch brothers funded this massive data operation called i360 that's been a major help to the Republicans, and the Democrats are just now coming up to speed on the use of data. The other thing is that the Democrats have donors and strategists, they certainly do. They don't have the same kind of nonpolitical party ground troops, and their dependency on the trade unions has been a problem because trade union membership in this country has plummeted over the last few decades, including in industrial states, which is why Democrats start having trouble in places like Michigan and Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.GARFIELD: And the political sympathies of the rank and file, the working class rank and file, have also drifted towards Republicans.NELSON: Well, there are a lot of reasons for that. They see Democratic policies, trade policies and others, even environmental policies, right, as taking something away from them. For example, in my home state of Oklahoma something like a quarter to a third of people are employed in various capacities at the oil industry. And if you say, all right, we're doing away with fossil fuels now for the sake of the environment, they say, well, what will happen to us? And I don't hear a lot of answers to that question and that questions legitimate. I mean, I'm all in favor of great policies on climate change, but you need to talk to the affected population and show them that they are in the picture, that they're looking out for them, they're going to have a life in the future, or they're not going to vote for you. I also feel that a lot of the conversation about white nationalism sounds alienating to many voters who don't consider themselves racist.MAN: I don't have a racist tone in my body, I never have.MAN: You know, giving me a fair shake, I'm not a racist. You know, I don't have a racist bone in my body. I never have.WOMAN: President Trump today declared, “I don't have a racist bone in my body.” NELSON: They think they're not racist, but they're told that they're racist, whether they think they are or not. And then they feel that there's this adversarial dynamic going on and then, “vote for us, even though we've just been calling you a racist.” And - and that formula doesn't doesn't work very well.GARFIELD: (laughs)NELSON: Engagement and inclusive language may take longer to accomplish in reforms, but they may be more effective in the long run.GARFIELD: All right, so there's this question I sometimes ask at the end of conversations like this. I ask it for two reasons: One, I just have no other way to conclude because I'm not that good at my job. NELSON: (Laughs) GARFIELD: But the other is that I believe I know the answer and I despair of it. And the question is: Anne, what's going to happen?NELSON: Well, over the next 11 months, I believe this country is going to have the greatest moment of truth it's had, certainly, in my lifetime. I think of it as a battle royale. The radical right realizes that this is perhaps their last chance to seize power and, if they succeed, they will change enough more laws in terms of gerrymandering and voter suppression that they will consolidate their hold on power for the foreseeable future. They'll have more time to prepare the way to substitute electors in 2024 if they need to. And at that point, if they can secure Congress, the executive branch, and the judiciary, they can institute the equivalent of a one party state. Will that happen? It depends on what everybody else does in the meantime. If everybody else goes into a non-strategic approach to the elections, where they think that acting out anger on the streets in protest is going to win votes in swing states, then it's playing into their hands. If people who want to defend democracy look at the electoral map and figure out what needs to be done, in which districts, with which parts of the electorate then there is a chance of a reprieve, which would be long enough to enact some of the reforms that would need to happen in order to forestall a virtual dictatorship in the future.GARFIELD: There were two rulings early in the Roberts court which seem to have gotten the GOP about 80 percent towards their goal. One was to regard political money as political speech and, therefore, pretty much out of the purview of Congress to limit it, which was a big, fat gift on a platinum platter to the Koch brothers and others of their ilk. And the other was to say the federal government no longer was needed to police voting rights in certain southern states, which after the Voting Rights Act of, I believe, 1960 were required to pass federal scrutiny so as not to systematically keep mostly black people from the polls. Those are now the law of the land. Is there any way to recover from such fundamental aberrations in the administration of government?NELSON: Not without winning some elections and making some compromises in states that we're not used to talking to. There's a project called Issue One that I recommend, and it's made up of many former congressmen, Democrats and Republicans, who are concerned with saving democracy. And I think that it is very important to frame it like that, and not devolve into this animosity and labeling and name calling, but saying, you know, what is democracy? What is the biggest tent we can manage where we don't have to agree on specific policies, we never have in our history. But we have to agree on the process of negotiation. That is our political system. And if we lose that and have religious dominionists who want to exert dominion over the rest of the population without that kind of process, then we've - we've lost a lot. So I think it's important for people to really rethink how they approach our national conversation and reach across state lines or political lines and engage and listen to each other. If that can happen, there might be some hope.GARFIELD: (Sighs) From your lips to God's ears. And thank you so much.NELSON: Hope he's listening! GARFIELD: I hope she is. NELSON: (laughs) GARFIELD: Anne Nelson is a research scholar at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University and author of the newly updated, and couldn't be more zeitgeist book, Shadow Network: Media, Money, and the Secret Hub of the Radical Right.

This is the first ever episode of the Isolated Incidents podcast. A monthly dive into the stories that journalists have put out covering the world of far-right and the grifters that inhabit it. When I first came up with the idea it was before the pandemic so I didn't think to necessarily cover the anti-vax devotees but as the worlds of right-wing grifters, politicians and radio hosts expands we'll cover those too. First a little bit about me. I'm Zach D Roberts an investigative journalist and photographer who has been covering the far right for over a decade. I followed Trump and his MAGA caravan on the 2016 campaign trail which then slid into the far-right rallies like the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, my photos helped get some of the violent white supremacists thrown in jail, and since then I've been going to MAGA rallies, fascist marches, and white supremacist clusterfucks. Now as the movements have evolved and after January 6th they've somewhat gone into hiding its anti-mandate' anti-vaxx and mask rallies that I cover - which are really just the new MAGA rally… with a lot of new faces. As this is the first episode of Isolated Incidents we're focusing on the OG conspiracy broadcaster - Alex Jones. Well, actually that would probably be either Art Bell or Bill Cooper or even some John Birch Society connected loon … I'm sure we'll talk about them in the future. Last month I spoke to journalist Brooke Binkowski who has been tracking Jones for a while now, delving into his coverage of the Sandy Hook mass killing in 2012 for the Texas defamation lawsuit brought by family of the murdered children. His refusal to provide the requested information to the multiple lawsuits against him by the parents of the murdered Sandy Hook children saw default judgments in Texas and Connecticut. He's currently attempting to raise $2 million to save his disinformation empire, he's even talking about selling his tank. Right-wing broadcaster Alex Jones is once again, in legal trouble. Last week, the January 6th Commission has subpoenaed him. A letter from the Commission, signed by Congressman Bennie Thompson has called on Jones to provide documents pertaining to his part in the organization of the rally and the subsequent march that he participated in to the Capitol. The Commission cites his “facilitating a donation to provide what he described as “eighty percent” of the funding.” Jones used his megaphone and live broadcast to call on people during the allegedly impromptu Jan 6th march to head in the direction of InfoWars guest, Ali Alexander's permitted rally location on the East side of the Capitol. The Commission does not seem to be claiming that he was part of a planned attack on the Capitol but was part of the larger move on the day to march to the building. On January 6th, the broadcaster repeatedly told his listeners that Trump personally ordered him to lead such a march. The subpoena sites multiple instances on his broadcasts in the leadup to January 6th that the rally was going to be something bigger than a goodbye to the one-term President. The rallying cry of 1776 Former President Trump tweeted out “Big Protest on January 6th, Be there will be wild!” - in response, the loudest cheerleader for MAGA responded: But finally Trump has done the right thing. .. . He is now calling on We the People to take action and to show our numbers. . . . This is the most important call to action on domestic soil since Paul Revere and his ride in 1776. The time for games is over. The time for action is now. Where were you when history called? Where were you when you and your children's destiny and future was [sic] on the line? I've been on the air 27 years, and I've never reported on anything that comes as close to being this huge. This is seismic. • • • And if you allow this multinational consortium to steal our election, you have committed not just us, but yourselves, to a living hell. . . . Trump is trying to do a lot of good things. And he is our President and he was reelected. Roger Stone, the originator of the phrase “Stop the Steal” and mentor to already subpoenaed Ali Alexander has also himself been today subpoenaed. With the previous subpoena of Ali Alexander and Nathan Martin much of the Stop the Steal leadership has now been called. Stone and Jones have a record of not complying with subpoenas and Alexander has claimed on his private Telegram channel that he will not participate with the Commission. Brooke Binkowski is the editor of TruthofFiction.com a fact checking news site and is the former managing editor of Snopes.com. You can find all the legal documents here: https://infowarslawsuit.com/ I recommend listening to the Knowledge Fight podcast if you want to learn more about the world of Alex Jones but also laugh about it. http://knowledgefight.libsyn.com/

If you appreciate Parallax Views and the work of J.G. Michael please consider supporting the show through Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/parallaxviews On this edition of Parallax Views, photojournalist Zach D. Roberts of the Palast Investigative Fund joins us to discuss the investigative journalism he and Greg Palast undertook in the aftermath of the January 6th Capitol riots. What Roberts and Palast found was the high-profile members of the GOP, including from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and Georgia Republican Party, had coordinated with Ali Alexander, an alt-right activist associated with Roger Stone and other far-right figures that played a role in organizing the "Stop the Steal" movement that stormed the Capitol on January 6th, 2021. We discuss this in detail as well as going over Zach and Greg's work on voter suppression, voter purges in the Georgia election, and much, much more.
In this episode, Matthew and Anna discuss Rep. Andy Biggs' attempts to distract everyone from his possible connection to Ali Alexander and the Capitol Insurrection while simultaneously scaring people into (probably) giving him money for his inevitable 2022 Campaign. Our hosts break down the ways Biggs misses the mark while discussing the 2nd Amendment, Borders, Immigration, and Human Trafficking.

Greg Palast, BBC investigative journalist and election theft specialist returns to update us on the goings-on in Georgia, round out the story of Brad Raffenspurger, and reveal how he has outed "Ali Alexander" for his role in the Jan 6th putsch
Welcome to Majority.FM's AM QUICKIE! Brought to you by justcoffee.coop TODAY'S HEADLINES: Donald Trump yesterday became the first United States president to be impeached twice. Congratulations, sir! Meanwhile, new details continue to surface about cooperation between last week’s Capitol mob and elected Republican officials. Not to mention the corporate money that backs them. And lastly, the United States government has announced a trade ban on certain products from China made with forced labor. A fifth of the global cotton supply is at stake, and major clothing brands are implicated. THESE ARE THE STORIES YOU NEED TO KNOW: It’s done. History has been made. Again. And hopefully not for a third time, because one insurrection was exciting enough. The House voted yesterday to impeach Donald Trump on a charge of inciting violence against the US government. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell left open the possibility of voting to convict at a trial, which would occur after Trump leaves office next week, the Washington Post reports. The Senate could vote on barring Trump from future elective office if he is convicted. The final vote in the House yesterday was two hundred and thirty-two to one hundred and ninety-seven, with ten Republicans voting with Democrats for impeachment. It was reportedly the most bipartisan impeachment ever. During debate on the House floor, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Trump bears responsibility for last week’s violent takeover of the Capitol but proposed he be censured rather than impeached. Holding Trump accountable, McCarthy said, would only fan the flames of partisan division. Congressman Jaime Raskin of Maryland, the lead impeachment manager, had a concise response to that argument. He said QUOTE It’s a bit much to be hearing that these people would not be trying to destroy our government and kill us if we just weren’t so mean to them ENDQUOTE. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Trump must go, calling him a clear and present danger. Representative Hakeem Jeffires of New York went farther, calling Trump QUOTE a living, breathing impeachable offense ENDQUOTE. Trump released a video statement disavowing political violence. He reportedly spent the day furious, watching television. Republicans Ignore Capitol Security The number of National Guard troops deployed to Washington, DC ahead of Joe Biden’s inauguration has reportedly swelled to twenty thousand, double what was initially pledged. News photos showed service members resting on the floors of the Capitol. Not everyone is happy about the increased security. A dozen or more Republicans in the House, including gun-toting Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert, have refused to comply with newly installed metal detectors outside the chamber. Some are concerned that these Republicans may be showing future armed insurrectionists how to circumvent security. And there is new information about how GOP elected officials may have coordinated with the mob that took the Capitol last week. The Washington Post reports that weeks before the siege, right-wing activist Ali Alexander told his followers he was planning something big for January 6th. Alexander, who organized the Stop the Steal movement, said he hatched the plan alongside three GOP lawmakers: Representatives Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar of Arizona, and Mo Brooks of Alabama. All are hard-line Trump supporters. And Politico reports that Democratic Representative Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey witnessed colleagues escorting people through the Capitol on January 5th for what she described as reconnaissance ahead of the next day’s violent insurrection. Sherrill did not identify the lawmakers, but has referred her information to authorities. Democrats are also investigating. Finally, two Capitol Police officers told BuzzFeed News they wouldn’t be surprised if lawmakers helped plan the attack. Beyond Washington, Politico reports that the Capitol riot was fueled by a deep network of GOP statehouse support. Lawmakers from more than a dozen states attended the January 6th rally, while scores more cheered on the mob from afar. Meanwhile, corporations and industry groups have donated at least $170 million in recent years to Congressional Republicans who rejected Joe Biden’s victory over Trump, according to Public Citizen, an advocacy group. So the insurrectionists have money, they have numbers, and they have outrage. But pretty soon, at least, they won’t have Congress – or the White House. US Bans Chinese Cotton This news of global trade and diplomacy comes via the Associated Press. The US government announced yesterday that it will halt imports of cotton and tomatoes from the Uighur region of China. The AP is calling it the most sweeping action yet to pressure the Communist Party over its campaign against ethnic minorities. Officials said Customs and Border Protection will use its authority to block products suspected of being produced with forced labor to keep out cotton, tomatoes and related products from the Xinjiang region of northwest China. The region is a major global supplier of cotton, so the order could have significant effects on international commerce. According to the AP, the order will put economic pressure not just on China but major global retailers who import goods produced by people under conditions that are akin to modern-day slavery. Scott Nova, executive director of the Worker Rights Consortium, said QUOTE Any global apparel brand that is not either out of Xinjiang already, or plotting a very swift exit, is courting legal and reputational disaster. The days when any major apparel brand can safely profit from Xinjiang cotton are over ENDQUOTE. The consortium estimates the US ban affects about twenty percent of the global cotton supply. China has imprisoned more than one million people, including Uighurs and other mostly Muslim ethnic groups, in a vast network of concentration camps, the AP reports. People have been subjected to torture, sterilization and political indoctrination in addition to forced labor as part of an assimilation campaign. China denies allegations of rights abuses and forced labor, saying it aims only to promote economic and social development in the region and stamp out radicalism. It also rejects criticism of what it considers its internal affairs. Well, we’ll stop criticizing when they stop abusing people. AND NOW FOR SOME QUICKER QUICKIES: The US recorded an all-time, one-day high of four thousand, three hundred and twenty-seven Covid-19 deaths on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. The nation’s overall death toll from the pandemic has topped three hundred and eighty thousand, closing in fast on the number of Americans killed in World War II. I think we’ve set enough records here, please, that’s enough. Wildfire smoke now accounts for up to half of all fine-particle pollution in the Western US, according to the Los Angeles Times. A new study by researchers at Stanford University and UC San Diego blames climate change for worsening air quality and health risks in both urban and rural communities in recent years. Excuse me, I’m choking up a bit at this news. Italy opened a huge trial yesterday of three hundred and twenty-five defendants linked to a powerful mafia syndicate in the southern region of Calabria. According to the New York Times, the charges include murder, extortion, usury, money laundering, drug trafficking, corruption, and more. Prosecutors hope to prove collusion among mobsters and public officials, politicians, businessmen and members of secret lodges, and we can’t wait for the movie. Joe Biden yesterday named Samantha Power, the former US Ambassador to the United Nations, as his choice to lead the US Agency for International Development. It’s another Biden appointment that will thrill the center and annoy the left, as he is wont to do.

President Donald Trump’s campaign to subvert the will of voters and reverse his reelection loss to Democrat Joe Biden is taking hold among state and local Republicans even as it marches toward imminent failure — a demonstration of Trump’s power to bend the GOP to his will even as he leaves office.Dozens of state lawmakers, elected officials and party leaders in recent weeks have endorsed and advanced Trump’s false claims, and in some cases called for undemocratic actions to reverse results. None of the moves have had an impact on the election results — and even Republican governors have certified Biden’s win. Still, activists say they see the so-called “stop the steal” campaign as the animating force behind the next wave of Trump-era conservative politics.“I definitely see a brand new movement taking shape,” said Monica Boyer, a former lobbyist in Indiana and early national voice of the tea party movement. “Was this election stolen? I don’t know. But people have the right to know.”Signs of the power of that burgeoning political force have been building: In Pennsylvania, 64 Republican lawmakers — including leadership — have signed a statement urging members of Congress to block the state's electoral votes from being cast for Biden. In Texas, the state's Republican attorney general has filed a lawsuit to the U.S. Supreme Court demanding that other states' Electoral College votes be invalidated.Even in liberal Massachusetts, five GOP candidates who lost their races filed a federal lawsuit Monday trying to decertify the state’s election results, recycling claims about irregularities and voting machines.Meanwhile, lawmakers in Michigan, Arizona and Georgia all hosted meetings with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani where they allowed hourslong airing of grievances over the election as the states certified results for Biden.To be sure, such efforts have done more to build political support than overturn results. Trump and his allies have lost more than 40 times in federal and state courts. Tuesday is “Safe Harbor Day,” the federal deadline for Congress to accept the electoral votes that will be cast next week and sent to the Capitol for counting on Jan. 6. Biden has already secured the 270 electors needed to win.Meanwhile, Trump's attempts to personally persuade GOP lawmakers, governors and state election officials to intervene have failed.The president reached out twice last week to Pennsylvania House Speaker Bryan Cutler, a Republican, to press the state’s legislature to replace the electors for Biden with those loyal to Trump. Cutler told him state law prevented such a move, according to a spokesman.Still, Trump has succeeded in using his unfounded grievances to build political power. The president has already raised more than $170 million since losing to Biden, requesting donations for an “election defense fund.” Most of that will become seed money for his post-presidency political career, going to a Trump-founded political action committee called Save America.The president has shown he's willing to attack state Republicans who don't back his cause. Trump tweeted Monday that Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, who had worried publicly about the spread of election misinformation, was “too dumb or corrupt to recognize massive evidence of fraud" and said he should be replaced.Duncan replied Tuesday: “Thank you for 4 years of conservative leadership,” adding that Trump had proven that a “business minded outsider can be effective in DC.”Some Republican groups, including state GOP committees, have grabbed hold of the Trump team's claims with both hands.The Arizona Republican Party late Monday appeared to ask supporters to consider dying to keep Trump in office. The state party's official Twitter account retweeted conservative activist Ali Alexander's pledge that he was “willing to give my life for this fight."“He is. Are you?” the Arizona GOP added.Some Republicans have spoken out against Trump's fight to subvert the results...
