United States Senator from California
Ralph is joined by author and human rights activist Miko Peled. They discuss the excuses that Israel uses to defend the atrocities they commit against Palestinians, and the truth behind all the propaganda. Miko Peled is an author, writer, speaker, and human rights activist living in the United States. He is considered by many to be one of the clearest voices calling for justice in Palestine, support of the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) and the creation of a single democracy with equal rights in all of historic Palestine. Mr. Peled was born and raised in Jerusalem. His grandfather was a signer of the Israeli Declaration of Independence and his father was a general in the 1967 war. Anybody who is not courageous enough to stand up and speak the truth and stand up for what is right, because they might be called this name or that name—it's cowardice, it's hypocrisy. Being called antisemitic is a small price to pay when you talk about standing for the rights of millions of people who have been living under such terror for so many decades.Miko Peled This is pure revenge. What we're seeing is vengeance of a military force and a state that have been humiliated. And just like any bully, any gangster who's been humiliated, they take it out on the weakest people they can find, people who cannot defend themselves… It's revenge for the sake of revenge. It's savagery for the sake of savagery. It's brutality in its purest form. There's no other reason than the brutality itself. Miko Peled Palestinians deserve nothing less than the lifting of the siege, release of all prisoners, and the dismantling of the apartheid state. Nothing less than that should be demanded. And all we're seeing people talk about is ceasefires, as though a ceasefire is some great accomplishment. Ceasefire does not provide the possibility of a future where this is not repeated. What needs to be demanded now is a political solution that will ensure the safety and security of Palestinians—and that is never part of the conversation. A ceasefire does not secure the lives or the security of Palestinians, because we know Israel will violate it a week later. Miko Peled It's not going to collapse because Israelis agree. It's not going to collapse because Israelis wake up one morning in a good mood. Israel is going to have to be forced on its knees. Just like in South Africa, whites in South Africa were on their knees. We're talking about severe sanctions. We're talking about closing down all diplomatic missions. We're talking about not allowing Israelis to participate in sporting events, cultural events, any events, academic arenas. They need to be shunned. Israeli society and the apartheid state that they created need to be brought on their knees.Miko Peled In Case You Haven't Heard with Francesco DeSantis1. The Intercept's Prem Thakker reports 43 members of Congress now support a ceasefire. Some notable additions in recent days include Reps. Becca Balint, Sara Jacobs and Jamie Raskin, the first Jewish members to call for a ceasefire, and Jeff Merkley, the second Senator to call for a ceasefire. Pressure continues to mount on Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, but they still do not support a ceasefire. And the LA Times editorial board has become the first in the nation to call for a ceasefire.2. According to Time, Reporters Without Borders has filed a complaint with the International Criminal Court for war crimes committed against Palestinian journalists in Gaza. The complaint cites the "deliberate, total or partial, destruction of the premises of more than 50 media outlets in Gaza." This crisis will likely prove decisive for the legitimacy of the ICC, as several countries including South Africa, have alleged that the court is biased in favor of western-aligned governments.3. Haaretz reports former Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy, who crafted the “Leahy Law” which prohibits U.S. military assistance to foreign security forces that violate human rights, has gone on record saying that the U.S. routinely ignores Israeli human rights abuses. Leahy said “it appears to me that shooting civilians and targeting civilian infrastructure, when you can't prove it is being used by Hamas, would be a violation of human rights…What is being done to apply the Leahy law now? I don't know. I know past administrations have been too concerned to do it. It should apply to the Israeli Defense Forces, unless the administration, as many have, has waived it."4. While not calling for a ceasefire, both Bernie Sanders and President Biden have announced plans to reshape military aid to Israel. Senator Sanders has put forth a plan to condition military aid upon multiple criteria including “the right of displaced Gazans to return to their homes” and “an end to settler violence in the West Bank.” Barak Ravid reports President Biden is considering imposing sanctions on Israeli settlers – who have long operated with legal impunity – threatening to ban visas for violent Israeli extremists in the West Bank. Ravid adds this would be the “1st time the U.S. [has] publicly consider[ed] individual sanctions against settlers.”5. KCRA reports The California Democratic convention was interrupted at multiple points by demonstrators demanding the candidates to fill Dianne Feinstein's Senate seat call for a ceasefire. Rep. Barbara Lee has done so, but not Reps. Katie Porter or Adam Schiff. Barbara Lee won the most votes at the convention, but fell short of the 60% threshold required to get the formal endorsement of the state party.6. A stunning ceasefire protest in the Bay Area saw activists park their cars on the bay bridge, then throw their keys into the water below – making it impossible for them or the police to move the vehicles, per FOX 8. Another protest at the DNC resulted in a police crackdown leaving 90 protesters injured, per the Guardian. Yet another protest at DC's Union Station resulted in 3 arrests on vandalism charges for protesters leaving bloody handprints on the inside of the station, per WTOP. Expect these disruption tactics to escalate as political leaders continue to ignore demands for a ceasefire.7. While many colleges are clamping down on pro-Palestine protests, Ryan Grim reports Occidental has set the model for engagement with student activists. The college announced that, following a student occupation of the administration office, they would pursue a dialogue with the student activists. Both the students and the administration stressed that Barack Obama got his start in activism at Occidental, pressuring the administration to divest from apartheid South Africa.8. In other news, Bloomberg reports the Public Prosecutor's office in Guatemala has conducted raids and arrests of Semilla party members. Semilla candidate Bernardo Arevalo was elected earlier this year, successfully, dealing a rare defeat to the openly corrupt political establishment in that country. The Public Prosecutor's office also announced that they will file charges against Arevalo, his vice-president elect, and several Semilla congressmen. The State Department has decried this move and is seeking to “Impose Additional Visa Restrictions in Response to Anti-Democratic Actions in Guatemala.” 9. Finally, More Perfect Union reports that “For the first time ever, U.S. auto workers have gotten a shuttered factory reopened. Workers at the massive Belvidere [Illinois] Jeep plant were laid off or told to relocate in March. Now the plant is not only reopening — @UAW won three times as many jobs and a $30/hour wage floor.” This stunning victory shows what is possible in terms of revitalizing domestic manufacturing with a renewed labor movement. And that is something we can all be thankful for.This has been Francesco DeSantis, with In Case You Haven't Heard. Get full access to Ralph Nader Radio Hour at www.ralphnaderradiohour.com/subscribe

The latest polls show a tightening race for the US. Senate seat previously held by Dianne Feinstein, with voters still not really focused on the campaign, and the field continues to grow. Appointed interim Senator Laphonza Butler has decided not to run for a full term, but a television news anchor from Los Angeles is now in the race. The polling shows Southern California Representatives Adam Schiff and Katie Porter still battling it out for first place, with Republican newcomer Steve Garvey, the former Los Angeles Dodger, jumping up into third place, and Oakland Congresswoman Barbara Lee behind him. The newest contender is winning just one percent right now, but she's only been in the race for a few weeks. That new Democratic candidate is Christina Pascucci, a 38-year-old journalist who's been a reporter and anchor on LA TV for more than a decade. KCBS Radio news anchor Patti Reising and KCBS political reporter Doug Sovern spoke with Christina Pascucci about her career, her campaign, and why she has decided to run for Senate as a political newcomer.
New polling data shows thirty percent of likely voters in the Bay Area aren't sure who they want to see fill Dianne Feinstein's seat in the Senate. For more, KCBS Radio's Margie Shafer and Eric Thomas spoke with KCBS Insider Phil Matier.

Welcome to The Georgia Politics Podcast! On today's show Craig and Professor Stone discuss the legacy of the late Senator Dianne Feinstein of California. Senator Feinstein, born on June 22, 1933, in San Francisco, California, enjoyed a distinguished career in American politics. After earning her degree in history from Stanford University in 1955, she delved into public service, first at the local level. Feinstein's career began in the early 1960s when she worked in local government, ultimately being appointed to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1970. Her advocacy for social justice and gun control quickly gained her recognition. Tragically, in 1978, she discovered the bodies of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk after their assassination, a traumatic event that reinforced her commitment to public service. In 1978, Feinstein became the first female mayor of San Francisco, focusing on housing, education, and economic development during her tenure. She was re-elected in 1983. Her ascent continued in 1992 when she was elected to the United States Senate, representing California. Feinstein has championed progressive causes, from gun control to healthcare reform and environmental protection, consistently aligning with the Democratic Party. She has served on influential committees, including the Senate Committee on Appropriations and the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. Throughout her career, Dianne Feinstein's dedication to public service and advocacy for a better society left an indelible mark on American politics.

Fortune's 2023 Most Powerful Women Summit took place on October 10th-12th in Laguna Niguel, CA. Over the three days, women across a wide variety of industries (healthcare, politics, entertainment, retail, and tech - just to name a few!) took the stage to share their perspectives on the state of their respective businesses, what it means to be a woman in leadership and how to address global tumult while also running a business. In today's episode of Leadership Next, you will hear excerpts from conversations with three women who especially embody many of the MPW values like leadership, tenacity, vision and creativity. Leadership Next Hosts Alan Murray and Michal Lev-Ram share their perspectives on the Summit throughout the episode. Up first, we hear from Senator Laphonza Butler who joined Fortune's Emma Hinchliffe onstage just one week after she was sworn in as a California senator, filling the seat vacated by Dianne Feinstein who passed away in September. Senator Butler discusses being an example of economic empowerment for women and girls and the power of coalition building across parties and the business sector to affect real change. In the second conversation of the episode, Lev-Ram sits down with #35 on the 2023 MPW list, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors of Starbucks and Ariel Investments co-CEO Mellody Hobson. Hobson shares how she initially became interested in strategic decision making and how to keep DEI a priority in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision on affirmative action. Hobson also dives deeper into the origin of the idea for Starbucks CEO Laxman Narasimhan to complete a six-month barista immersion. Finally, we hear excerpts from Lev-Ram's conversation with #53 on the 2023 MPW List, Netflix Chief Content Office Bela Bajaria. Bajaria discusses how the company chooses which content to produce and acquire, plus the importance of balancing the use of algorithms versus trusting her gut in that process. Leadership Next is powered by Deloitte.
Bill Carrick was the longtime chief media strategist for Senator Dianne Feinstein, as well as helping elect President Bill Clinton, multiple LA mayors, Congressman Jim Clyburn, and many more. In this conversation, Bill discusses his early political roots in South Carolina, his time working for Senator Ted Kennedy, his pivot to political media, and a deep dive on his time as chief strategist for Dianne Feinstein. We talk her early activist days in the 60s, the assassination that led to her becoming mayor of San Francisco, their first lunch meeting in 1989, how she leveraged a loss in the '90 Governor's race into 6 terms in the Senate, and her impact and legacy on priorities as varied as water policy, gun safety, choice, anti-torture policies, and more.

Then, they're joined by David Feldman of The David Feldman Show! First, Sam and Emma run through updates on the job market, Biden's concerning anti-immigration push, environmental collapse, the GOP Speakership race, Right-Wing legal woes, another killer cop not getting charged, and Cornel West's candidacy, before parsing a little deeper through Biden's attempt to shirk responsibility for his regressive immigration policy. Alex Pareene then joins, as they tackle the unsurprising – yet nonetheless disappointing – developments around Dianne Feinstein's seat, also diving into the absolute chaos within the GOP, from the Speakership battle and the government shutdown to its absolute absence of an agenda. After briefly expanding on a hilarious predicament the House GOP has put themselves in, Alex, Sam, and Emma wrap up with an analysis of various left-wing presidential candidacies. David Feldman then joins to educate Sam and Emma on film history, the Tiki Torch agenda, and the real takeaways from Shelby County vs. Holder. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma watch Hillary get right back into her prime (giving the right-wing ample propaganda), expand on the self-immolation of the House GOP (with help from Nancy Mace), and watch Greg Gutfeld rally against democracy.

It's Hump Day! Sam and Emma speak with Greg Iwinski member of the Writers Guild of America (WGA) negotiating committee, to discuss the agreement struck between the WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers to end their strike. Then, they're joined by Moe Tkacik, investigations editor at the The American Prospect, to discuss her recent piece on the complaint levied against Amazon by the Federal Trade Commission. First, Sam and Emma run through updates on labor action among healthcare workers and the UAW, Federal challenges to monopoly, Trump's gag order, and Septembers record heat numbers, before parsing through the ousting of Kevin McCarthy, and his total shock in reaping what he sowed during his confirmation. Greg Iwinski then joins, first reflecting on the massive progress made by the WGA since his last MR appearance, and the ongoing process of ratifying their deal with studios – before briefly stepping back to analyze the role of the growing national labor movement and mass contraction of the streaming model in creating this moment. After briefly touching on the future of the industry model, Iwinski walks Sam and Emma through the big wins from the WGA deal, including various pay protections, job protections, and a peek behind the curtain of streaming data. Next, Moe Tkacik tackles the FTC's ongoing anti-trust suit against Amazon, exploring the elements of monopoly that this case is targeting, and Amazon's massive ability to leverage third-party sellers and shippers into horrendous deals – with severe algorithmic consequences if they don't agree. After parsing through the details of the allegations (and what remains foggy), Tkacik, Sam, and Emma look to the growing anti-trust movement in both law and politics, and why anti-trust messaging is so necessary to combat the media manipulation of massive monopolies. They wrap up the interview with an analysis of the future of the anti-trust movement, and what it will take to fight against generations of brainwashing by the Chicago School of economics. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma dive into the beautiful culmination of the absolute sh*t show hosted by the House GOP, tackling responses from both the Gaetz and McCarthy coalitions, and exploring where the Right-Wing media falls along these lines. Hannity floats a Trump-Speakership and is shut down by hopeful Jim Jordan, and Grant Stinchfield shifts to another off-brand Fox station to rant about Dianne Feinstein's passing, plus, your IMs!

It's a government shutdown by another name! Accused sex trafficker, proud January 6 insurrectionist, and Kremlin shill Matt Gaetz makes Russian state TV gleeful by leading the Kremlin Kaos Kaucus (KKK) by blocking much-needed aid to Ukraine and overthrowing Kevin McCarthy as speaker for trying to do a Ukraine deal with the Democrats. You may remember McCarthy as that guy who admitted Putin pays Trump, yet went on to support him and his MAGA death cult, earning his place in history as the first speaker to be ousted. Gaetz's Kremlin disinformation antics are part of a larger operation serving the Republican Party's dark money backers that include dirty Russian-linked financing that helped elect George Santos, the Koch political network that wants to drop sanctions against Russia to protect their profits, and the PayPal mafia like Elon Musk and Peter Thiel that deliberately destroyed Twitter, an organizing space for activists and journalists, in a unified bid to weaken American democracy and usher in dictatorship. Yes, this is all happening, and none of it is normal. The KKK in Congress makes America look like an unreliable ally and demoralizes Ukrainians fighting and giving their lives to stop Russian imperial fascism. When they scream on the House floor about the national debt, what they really mean is protecting their corporate backers' record profits, historically and criminally low taxes, and wealth hoarding at the expense of the public good. This is Reagan's Revolution ideologically aligned with Putin's court of oligarchs: Greed is good and the firehose of corruption and scandal ensures they live above the law. As history shows, our courts are the anecdote when Congress is gridlocked. Unfortunately, Biden's judicial appointments were stalled this year as Senator Dianne Feinstein and her enablers refused to let her retire with dignity, tarnishing her legacy by slowing down Biden's appointments for months. If people weren't getting rich off of Washington being broken, it would have been fixed by now. The great Heather Cox Richardson, historian and author of the latest must-read book Democracy Awakening: Notes on the State of America, stops by Gaslit Nation to give us insight on how we got here and what to do about this dangerous crossroads in our nation's history. Needless to say Andrea and Heather geek out over Ulysses S. Grant! This week's bonus episode will include a livestream on Patreon and on Instagram (to help wean us off of Twitter – the largest Russian disinformation outlet in the world, according to the European Union). That will take place on Thursday at 4pm ET – Patreon subscribers should look out for a link posted shortly before we go live, or join for free on Instagram. The topic will be some disturbing tea spilled about Fox News and how the sausage gets made there, according to a former insider.

In today's episode, Andy & DJ discuss what Donald Trump's Civil Fraud Trial starting in New York means for the rest of Americans, the new photos of Rep. Jamaal Bowman pulling the fire alarm in the House building along with the excuse he's making, and Gavin Newsom's Senate replacement for the late Dianne Feinstein, Laphonza Butler.
California Democrats were already jockeying to run for Dianne Feinstein's Senate seat next year and Governor Gavin Newsom sidestepped the contenders by announcing he would appoint Laphonza Butler to the seat. While Newsom made good on his vow to appoint a Black woman to the Senate, does Butler's job offer come with a poison pill? Guest: Alex Sammon, Slate politics writer.

Jamaal Bowman is under fire for pulling a fire alarm at the Cannon House Office Building on Saturday afternoon in a suspected ploy to delay a continuing resolution vote to avert a government shutdown. An investigation into why it was pulled is under way, with Bowman's spokesperson saying, “Congressman Bowman did not realize he would trigger a building alarm as he was rushing to make an urgent vote.” The reaction to Bowman's alarm incident and subsequent excuse drew the ire of the internet, as no one is buying his story, with some saying Bowman may have committed crimes by pulling the fire alarm. Surely he will get the same treatment as the January 6 defendants and be left in solitary prison for a year awaiting trial. Just kidding, he'll receive absolutely no punishment for this, because our justice system is fundamentally broken. In fact, AOC is already jumping in to defend her fellow Squad member. If you watched any football the last few weeks, you may have noticed that Taylor Swift has taken over the NFL, to the dismay of actual football fans. Chad gives his take on the pop culture icon becoming the face of the NFL. Senator Dianne Feinstein passed away at 90 years old this weekend literally less than a day after voting in the Senate. Now that someone has literally died in Congress, can we start looking at term limits for our public servants? Elon Musk traveled to the border and was dismayed at what he saw. Musk indicated that “pretty extreme individuals” are stealing into the U.S. during his visit to Eagle Pass. The tech tycoon called the situation at the border “insane.” At the same time, New York Governor Kathy Hochul says the border is “too open” and wants to limit crossings. New York wanted to be a sanctuary state, and it's getting what it asked for.

Nicolle Wallace discusses the beginning of the ex-president's fraud trial in New York, the far-right's attempt to oust Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, California Governor Gavin Newsom's choice to fill late Senator Dianne Feinstein's seat, what Attorney General Merrick Garland is saying about political violence as prosecutors attempt to reign in the ex-president's threatening rhetoric, what to expect from the next term in the Supreme Court, and more.

Happy Monday! Sam and Emma speak with Ian Millhiser, senior correspondent at Vox, to discuss the upcoming Supreme Court term. Then, they're joined by litigator Mark Bankston who has a special announcement! First, Sam and Emma run through updates on our 45-day reprieve from a government shutdown, the ongoing chaos among the House GOP despite that, Gov. Newsome's disappointing unilateral action, Donald Trump's fraud case, and labor action nationwide, before parsing through commentary on the House GOP's absurd power struggle. Ian Millhiser then joins, diving right into this Supreme Court term's primary challenges to the administrative state – namely Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo – exploring the lasting governance of the Chevron Doctrine's deference to government agencies, and the sudden emergence of the anti-democratic “Major Questions Doctrine” that the Court has been using to undermine any “major” decisions by government agencies (including student debt reform). After parsing through the evolution of these two doctrines (and the jurisprudence backing them up) and how Loper might see SCOTUS move onto the “Micromanaging Questions Doctrine,” Millhiser walks Sam and Emma through the radicalization of the US' 5th Circuit over the Donald Trump administration, exploring how the GOP was able to blockade Obama's appointments and confirm Trump's en-masse. Wrapping up, Ian, Sam, and Emma tackle the far-right decisions coming out of the 5th Circuit, and what (if anything) the Supreme Court will do to keep their underlings in line. After Sam and Emma quickly parse through Jamaal Bowman's ongoing Congressional debacle, they're joined by Mark Bankston to discuss his representation of Ben Brody in a defamation case against Elon Musk, parsing through the issue at hand, what libel cases entail, and the vast damages that can come from the abuse of one's public station. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma tackle the madness surrounding the still-impending government shutdown, dive a little deeper into the unsurprisingly racist coverage of Jamaal Bowman… pulling a fire alarm, and assess Biden's recent statement on the Civil Rights Act. Next, they dive deep into Gavin Newsom's astounding decision to name Laphonza Butler – a fundraiser who's never held public office – to Dianne Feinstein's Senate Seat over the over-deserving Barbara Lee, before Owen from LA helps parse through Butler's past, Dan from CA provides some good ol' unproductive libertarian debate, and Hannah from San Diego dives into the absurdity of the rental market as a military-civilian.

BlazeTV contributor Eric July joins the show today to discuss the passing of Senator Dianne Feinstein and the impending government shutdown. California Senator Dianne Feinstein passed away at her Washington, D.C., home just hours after casting a vote on Thursday. Feinstein served for over 30 years in the Senate. Governor Gavin Newsom of California will be responsible for appointing her replacement, and he has already been clear about his intention to choose a black woman for the position. Elon Musk's visit to the Texas-Mexico border continues to draw attention to issues surrounding immigration and border security.
