Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with developments on Capitol Hill as Democrats push to avoid a government shutdown and pass President Biden's economic agenda. Meanwhile, Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema are refusing to pass Biden's Build Back Better agenda. Rep. Ro Khanna of California, deputy whip for the Congressional Progressive Caucus, joins Joy to discuss. And tomorrow, three congresswomen will testify on their deeply personal stories of abortion at a House hearing on reproductive rights. In an exclusive aired first on The ReidOut, NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent Ali Vitali spoke with Rep. Barbara Lee, Rep. Cori Bush, and Rep. Pramila Jayapal about their experiences -- ranging from what abortion looked like before Roe v. Wade, to grappling with the aftermath of traumatic experiences at a young age. Finally, Joy Reid critiques the Republicans cozying up to right-wing militias and extremist groups, such as the Oath Keepers, Three Percenters, AFPAC and QAnon, in tonight's "The Absolute Worst." All this and much more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

It has now been 20 years since September 11th, 2001. So we're bringing you a Peabody Award-winning story from our archives about one sentence, written in the hours after the attacks, that has led to the longest war in U.S. history. We examine how just 60 words of legal language have blurred the line between war and peace. In the hours after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, a lawyer sat down in front of a computer and started writing a legal justification for taking action against those responsible. The language that he drafted and that President George W. Bush signed into law - called the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) -  has at its heart one single sentence, 60 words long. Over the last decade, those 60 words have become the legal foundation for the "war on terror." In this collaboration with BuzzFeed, reporter Gregory Johnsen tells us the story of how this has come to be one of the most important, confusing, troubling sentences of the last two decades. We go into the meetings that took place in the chaotic days just after 9/11, speak with Congresswoman Barbara Lee and former Congressman Ron Dellums about the vote on the AUMF. We hear from former White House and State Department lawyers John Bellinger & Harold Koh. We learn how this legal language unleashed Guantanamo, Navy Seal raids and drone strikes. And we speak with journalist Daniel Klaidman, legal expert Benjamin Wittes and Virginia Senator Tim Kaine about how these words came to be interpreted, and what they mean for the future of war and peace. Finally, we check back in with Congresswoman Lee, and talk to Yale law professor and national security expert Oona Hathaway, about how to move on from the original sixty words.

On COI #159, Kevin Gosztola joins Kyle Anzalone to discuss the people who were right about the Afghan War all along, among them Congresswoman Barbara Lee, who cast the sole ‘no' vote against the 2001 authorization to attack Afghanistan. Lee correctly predicted that the bill would be exploited to justify an endless war, and has continued to fight to repeal the 2001 AUMF.  Kevin recounts the story of Matthew Hoh. Working as a State Department official, Hoh realized Obama's Afghan surge would be a deadly failure. He, therefore, blew the whistle on the administration's propaganda campaign, which insisted the ‘surge' approach employed in Iraq could be exported to Afghanistan. While Hoh was largely ignored, he gained key backing for his claims, which have since been proven correct.  Like Hoh, Daniel L. Davis also blew the whistle over the disastrous Afghan surge. Years after Hoh, Davis reported to Congress – and the American people – that the country's leaders were lying about their non-existent successes in Afghanistan.  Kevin talks about the importance of journalist Micheal Hastings, who penned an explosive 2010 Rolling Stone profile that resulted in the firing of Stanley McChrystal, the “Runaway General.” Hastings also exposed the absurdity of the US counter-insurgency campaign pushed by the disgraced General David Petraeus.  The horrors and failures of the Afghan War were also published by Wikileaks, thanks to leaker Chelsea Manning and journalist Julian Assange. Kevin explains why Manning passed the Afghan War Logs to Wikileaks and updates Julians Assange's extradition appeal.  Daniel Hale is another persecuted whistleblower, who released important information showing the massive number of civilians murdered by the US drone program. Hale appeared in the documentary ‘National Bird,' but was not prosecuted for leaking the information until years later.  Kevin Gosztola is managing editor at Shadowproof, host of the "Dissenter Weekly," and co-host of the podcast "Unauthorized Disclosure."

Joanne Samuel Goldblum and Colleen Shaddox, the authors of Broke in America (Ben Bella Books, 2021), join Casey for a discussion on their work, the state of poverty in America and the fact that poverty is a policy choice. We get into such topics as privatization of basic human needs, school zoning and whether the Biden administration is doing anything notable to combat poverty on a national scale. Both authors share how they came to this work as well as the faith traditions (Jewish and Catholic) that brought them to care for the poor in a material way. We also discuss what it truly means to be on the side of the poor and marginalized (hint: it has much more to do with material restructuring than it does performative gesticulations or interpersonal anti-racist measures) and the fact that Barbara Lee is the real deal (for just one proof of this fact, watch this video right after 9/11, when she stands alone in the House of Representatives - not even Bernie got this one right - and defends her sole vote against Bush's AUMF)!

Sam and Emma host Alex Pareene, staff writer at the New Republic, to discuss the week's top stories including Biden's first foreign policy trip to the G7, Manchin's voting rights bill, and the endless revolving infrastructure negotiations.  Alex, Emma, and Sam start with the Manchin leak, in which he requests some quid pro quo help from his favorite billionaires, and look into Roy Blunt's response to the call out and McConnell's role in inspiring Manchin's bipartisan fetish, before they touch on Manchin finally acknowledging that the 60-vote filibuster threshold was, indeed, not ordained by God, and ponder the question of where the leak came from. They also touch on the ancient neoliberal contradiction of public-private partnerships, and the important role Bernie Sanders is taking on in the infrastructure negotiations. Sam and Emma round out the first half by discussing MSNBC's refusal to voluntarily recognize the recently announced union and contextualize it within a greater movement of media unions, and then take a look at Tucker Carlson's masterful attempt to both back away from and further circulate his claim regarding FBI informants on Jan 6th. Then Jason Myles and Pascal Robert of This is Revolution join to discuss the paradox of the new Juneteenth holiday, the limits of racial democracy in the face of wealth inequality, Biden's black trauma gravy train, the black voting bloc superstructure and patronage network, and more.

June 15, 2021: McConnell Promises to Keep Being Awful; Biden Wants to Kill 2002 AUMF; Texas Braces for Second Power Crisis

AM Quickie

Welcome to Majority.FM's AM QUICKIE! Brought to you by justcoffee.coop TODAY'S HEADLINES: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Monday that he wouldn't even consider letting Biden seat a new Supreme Court Justice if the GOP takes back the Senate in 2022. Meanwhile, the Biden Administration said that it supports a new resolution to end the 2002 Authorization of Use of Military force. And lastly, Texas may be headed for another major power crisis as the state's fragile power grid expects record use in June. THESE ARE THE STORIES YOU NEED TO KNOW: Mitch McConnell has thrown down the gauntlet, and the Democrats are, well, sort of just standing there looking at it. In an interview on conservative talk radio, McConnell said that if Republicans take back the Senate, he would block any prospective Supreme Court nominee that Biden sent him. This is not exactly a surprise. McConnell pretended that his resistance to a new nominee would be from his typical election year nonsense, saying that he'd block a nominee in 2024 just like he did in 2016 at the end of the Obama years. But we all know what the score is. McConnell's life's work is the judiciary and he's done a very good job of securing it for the business-friendly, person-hostile policies of conservatives for generations to come. But what it does indicate is just how futile any Democratic expectations of bipartisanship have become. It also means that the party has to be looking for 82-year-old Stephen Breyer to retire while there's still a chance of getting a liberal replacement confirmed. There's a permanent solution to all this, of course: packing the court. But McConnell knows that Democrats and liberal justices on the bench already don't really have the guts. He said this about Justice Breyer, quote: “I do want to give him a shout-out, though, because he joined what Justice Ginsburg said in 2019 that nine is the right number for the Supreme Court. And I admire him for that. I think even the liberal justices on the Supreme Court have made it clear that court packing is a terrible idea.” Glad everyone's on the same page! Biden Wants to Kill 2002 AUMF The Biden Administration made a huge announcement on Monday: it formally supports a push by Rep. Barbara Lee to end the 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force. The 2002 AUMF, as it's called, is the legal document we used to justify invading Iraq. In the years since, it's been trotted out as evidence that the U.S. can legally engage in all kinds of military activities in the country. It's a disgrace that it was ever passed, of course, but it's an even bigger disgrace that it hasn't been repealed yet, so the fact that it may finally get tossed is a good thing. However, it doesn't mean a whole lot as far as U.S. wars overseas go. The Biden Administration's statement itself notes that quote: “the United States has no ongoing military activities that rely solely on the 2002 AUMF as a domestic legal basis, and repeal of the 2002 AUMF would likely have minimal impact on current military operations.” In other words, all of our bombing and killing overseas is going to be just fine. That's because the 2002 order isn't the only AUMF -- there was another one in 2001 after 9/11 that's even more broad. And in recent years, presidents haven't even needed the AUMF's to do what they want -- they've been able to pursue narrower military actions at their own discretion thanks to the steady increase in executive power since Bush was elected. Biden's statement notes that the administration wants to work with Congress to replace these so-called outdated orders, but it's pretty clear that its ability to wage war isn't going to be affected all that much. Texas Braces for Second Power Crisis Another power crisis is shaping up in Texas, this time due to the massive summer heatwave rolling through the state. ERCOT, the state's energy grid operator, asked customers on Monday to conserve as much energy as possible through, as many of its generators were down for repairs. On top of that, ERCOT estimated that June could see record-breaking demand for power. This is a very similar situation to the disastrous, deadly outages in Texas this winter, when millions went without power during a brutal cold snap. Now, ERCOT's customers are once again facing the prospect of blackouts, this time as temperatures spike to over 90 degrees in much of the state. ERCOT is asking Texans to Set thermostats to 78 degrees or higher, turn off lights, and avoid using large appliances until the end of the week. Those steps might help, but it's not really the everyday consumer's job to fix Texas's hugely unstable energy grid. Austin's local NPR affiliate reports that experts have warned power problems like this will keep happening unless the state moves away from coal and gas generators and overhauls its wildly deregulated system. Until then, the government is basically forcing regular Texans to bear the heat. AND NOW FOR SOME QUICKER QUICKIES: Meanwhile, a driver plowed into protesters in Minneapolis late on Sunday night, killing one and injuring several others, in a similar attack to the ones that menaced protests last summer. The crowd was protesting the death of Winston Boogie Smith Jr., a 33-year-old Black man, who was killed by U.S. Marshalls on June 3. President Biden gave his first speech to NATO on Monday. The key issues looming over the Cold War era alliance are Ukraine's possible entry into the group, especially ahead of Biden's upcoming summit with Russia's Vladimir Putin. In his speech, Biden stressed that he wasn't looking for a confrontation with Putin. We'll see how that goes! Reality Winner is out of prison! The former intelligence contractor who was prosecuted for leaking state secrets to the Intercept was released to a halfway house on Monday, her lawyer announced. A Washington Post analysis found that coronavirus infections are dropping where most people have been vaccinated, and rising where they are not. That may seem obvious, but it underscores just how far some states and communities have to go to keep their constituents safe.

With more people understanding these delicious treats need to be enjoyed by everyone we will talk to Stroopwafel company Finger Licking Dutch Founders John Bronson, former NFL player for the Arizona Cardinals and his wife Femke Veelenturf with their company based in Philadelphia, PA. On one of their first dates, she gave John Bronson a traditional Dutch food package with stroopwafels in it, and the rest as you would say is history.

Sharon Shvarzman, the owner of an Israeli restaurant in Philly, keshetkitchen, and winner on Food Network's The Great Food Truck Race with Tyler Florence will be with us also.
