American Midnight: The Great War, a Violent Peace, and Democracy's Forgotten Crisis is the title of a new book by legendary historian, Adam Hochschild. It covers 1917 to 1921. Years which saw America enter World War I, suppress dissent of any kind, ignore white riots killing black people, encourage rampant anti-Semitism, and the crippling assault on a political party that had garnered 6% of the vote in the previous national election. All overseen by President Woodrow Wilson. He was certainly a progressive in some of his policies, but when the crisis of the war came, he became a would-be autocrat. The history of this period, has resonance to what we've been through during the Trump administration. And the danger that Trump or someone like him could use a crisis to once again strip Americans of their fundamental rights.Today's Bill Press Pod is supported by the United Food and Commercial Workers Union.

Miller is an MSNBC analyst, writer-at-large for The Bulwark, and host of “Not My Party” on Snapchat.

He has since left the GOP.Today Bill shines a light on Congressman Tim Ryan who is running to flip a Senate seat in increasingly Red Ohio. While the GOP donors have recently poured in $30,000.000 to rescue JD Vance, the Democratic establishment has been stingy with support for Tim. This race is very winnable and at the moment, Ryan is slightly ahead of Vance in the polls. But he needs cash to finish strong.

When Bill talked to Jacqueline Ayers, the Senior Vice president at Planned Parenthood for Policy, Campaigns and Advocacy, the word “rage” came up six times. Rage against this latest Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe V Wade. Rage against the state legislatures and governors who are instituting draconian abortion bans. Rage against the burdens put on health care providers who have to consult with lawyers, or look over their shoulder at prosecutors, when trying merely to save a woman's life. Plus they talk about how you can take action to mitigate this human rights disaster. Today Bill highlights the work of Planned Parenthood which is not only providing reproductive care to millions of women, but also working hard to help us fight back against the narrowing of women's rights. Check out their action-oriented website, BansOff.org. This is full of information on how you can get involved in your state to protect a woman's right to choose.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

As Bill used to say on his radio show, you don't need to watch Fox News or listen to Rush Limbaugh, because Media Matters for America was doing it for you. They're still doing it and they've added other right-wing outlets like One America News Network or OAN. In today's podcast, Media Matters writer Bobby Lewis takes us down the dark rabbit hole that is OAN. It's not only dark, it's dangerous.

Mark Leibovich is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller This Town. His new book, Thank You for Your Servitude, DONALD TRUMP'S WASHINGTON AND THE PRICE OF SUBMISSION is the eyewitness account of how the GOP collaborated with Donald Trump to transform Washington's “swamp” into a gold-plated hot tub—and a onetime party of rugged individualists into a sycophantic personality cult. A long time New York Times writer, he is now at the Atlantic, in part, he says, because he can use profanity there. You can purchase Mark's great book here, or at your favorite local bookstore.
