Coisas que se ouvem num programa de televisão que já teve outro nome: A Justiça não é morosa, isso é mito. Os anões também têm direito à arena. Os franceses entalaram Macron entre Le Pen e Mélenchon. Depois do 31 de Julho entra Agosto (isto por acaso já tinha sido afirmado na lírica popular). Cada português fará um esforço para não estar doente.

EPISODE 61 | The Great Replacement - The White Wing Goes Mainstream The world keeps changing and some people have had just about enough. So they revert to tried and true paradigms that worked for them in the past, but with a new twist. Like the Great Replacement - the idea that white people are being systematically replaced by non-white people with an eye to eliminating whites altogether. They say the puppet masters are probably Jews, though maybe Muslims, liberals or women. It may seem like a new idea, but it's really just pseudoscientific lipstick on a racist pig. Like what we do?

A cura di Ferruccio Bovio I risultati delle elezioni politiche francesi smentiscono le aspettative di Macron, il quale aveva sperato che, a favore di “Ensemble” (la coalizione che a lui fa riferimento), giocasse un effetto trascinamento derivante dalle recentissime Presidenziali. Effetto che è, invece, sicuramente mancato, avendo il raggruppamento macroniano perso quasi 100 seggi – scendendo dai 341 eletti nel 2017 ai 245 di domenica scorsa – ed essendosi collocato, comunque, ben al di sotto della quota 289 necessaria per avere la maggioranza assoluta dell'Assemblea Nazionale. Certo, Ensemble rimane ancora il primo schieramento parlamentare, ma ciò nonostante non c'è dubbio sul fatto che Emmanuel Macron esca da questa tornata elettorale decisamente ridimensionato. D'altra parte, i dati emersi dalle urne hanno certificato che, se in Francia esiste un candidato Macron che è in grado di conquistare praticamente da solo l'Eliso, è tuttavia anche del tutto assente un partito che ne rifletta efficacemente la credibilità politica sul territorio. È mancata infatti, al presidente appena rieletto, una presenza ben radicata nei collegi elettorali dove, ai ballottaggi, esponenti di altri partiti dai volti ben più noti ai votanti hanno finito per prevalere sui meno conosciuti candidati macroniani. Viene, quindi, da pensare che, nei cinque anni precedenti in cui aveva potuto governare incontrastato il Paese, Emmanuel Macron abbia sottovalutato l'esigenza di dotarsi anch'egli di una struttura organizzativa analoga a quelle dei suoi avversari politici, facendo forse eccessivo affidamento sul suo carisma e sulla forza delle sue idee. Ma all'origine di questo sostanziale insuccesso elettorale c'è stato, probabilmente, anche un altro errore che può aver regalato molti seggi, soprattutto alla destra di Marine Le Pen che, non a caso, conosce un exploit sensazionale passando da 8 ad 89 deputati eletti. Subito dopo la rielezione alla presidenza della repubblica, Macron ha, infatti, voltato le spalle, deludendolo, a quell'elettorato moderato – rappresentato dai Républicains neo gaullisti che lo avevano preferito alla sua avversaria Le Pen – per chiamare, invece, alla guida dell'esecutivo l'ex socialista Elisabeth Borne. Forse si è trattato di un tentativo di intercettare voti di sinistra in vista delle legislative, ma il risultato concreto è stato, quasi certamente, quello di regalare, nei ballottaggi, i consensi repubblicani ad altri partiti. A questo punto, Macron, se vuole che il nuovo governo di Parigi si regga su una maggioranza assoluta, dovrà per forza scendere a patti con i 79 parlamentari eletti dalla destra moderata, dando vita, pertanto, ad un esecutivo di centro-destra: cosa che, se avesse avuto un po' più di lungimiranza, avrebbe già dovuto fare all'indomani della sua rielezione.

The House Jan. 6 committee is set to hear from local officials who fended off Donald Trump's pressure to overturn the 2020 presidential election. The panel investigating the U.S. Capitol attack resumes Tuesday with testimony from Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger about Trump's call asking him to “find 11,780” votes to prevent Joe Biden's election victory. His deputy Gabe Sterling and Arizona's Republican state leader Rusty Bowers are also key witnesses. The panel will focus on how Trump pressured battleground state officials with schemes to reject state tallies and electors, all fueled by his false claims of election fraud. Documents examined by the Austin American-Statesman and KVUE-TV show armed police officers stood in a Uvalde elementary school hallway with at least one ballistic shield within 19 minutes of a gunman arriving at the school, where he killed 21 people, 19 of them children. The outlets' report, which did not indicate the source of the documents, nevertheless intensifies the anguish and questions over why police didn't act sooner to stop the May 24 slaughter in the Robb Elementary School classroom. The outlets reported that gunfire could be heard as much as 29 minutes before officers entered the classroom and killed the gunman. President Joe Biden has signed off on giving federal wildland firefighters a hefty raise for the next two fiscal years. The move announced Tuesday affects more than 16,000 firefighters and comes as much of the West braces for a difficult wildfire season. Pay raises for the federal firefighters had been included in last year's $1 trillion infrastructure bill, but they had been held up as administration officials studied recruitment and retention data to decide where to deliver them. Agencies are authorized to increase the base salary of federal wildland firefighters by $20,000 per year or 50% of their current base salary, whichever is lower. A giant stingray caught in the Mekong River last week is more than a giant — it is the biggest of them all. Scientists say the stingray that measured 13 feet from snout to tail is the world's largest recorded freshwater fish. It was documented by Wonders of the Mekong, a joint Cambodian-U.S. research project. The Mekong runs through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. It is home to several species of giant freshwater fish, but environmental pressures are threatening their survival. Researchers say the fish's size is important because fish take time to mature. The stingray was implanted with a tracking tag before it was released back into the river. At the Stanley Cup Finals, The Lightning come back swinging, Red Sox rookie pitcher Josh Winckowski earns his way into the rotation, Atlanta breaks a tie with a ninth inning single, and the Brewers dominate in Milwaukee.  The nation's youngest children are getting their chance at vaccines for COVID-19. Shots began Monday at a few locations, though they were expected to ramp up after the Juneteenth federal holiday. The Food and Drug Administration cleared vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer last week and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave the final signoff over the weekend. Roughly 18 million youngsters under 5 are eligible. For the little kids, Pfizer's vaccine is three shots and Moderna's is two shots. Getting some parents on board may be a challenge given disappointing vaccination rates in school-age kids. President Joe Biden says he's considering a holiday on the federal gasoline tax. That could possibly save U.S. consumers as much as 18.4 cents a gallon. Biden indicated to reporters Monday that his decision could come by the end of the week. The administration is increasingly looking for ways to spare the public from higher prices at the pump, which began to climb last year and surged after Russia invaded Ukraine in February. Gas prices nationwide are averaging just under $5 a gallon, according to AAA. Taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel help pay for highways.  A college basketball player was killed and eight other people were wounded Monday in an early-morning shooting at a gathering in Harlem, New York City police said. Officers responded around 12:40 a.m. to reports of a shooting on a footpath along FDR Drive and found several people wounded. Other victims went to hospitals on their own. Twenty-one-year-old Houston Baptist University senior Darius Lee was killed, the Texas university said. The wounded included six males and two females. The shooting comes amid national concern over gun violence and as the U.S. Supreme Court is considering whether to strike down a law making it difficult to legally carry handguns in New York. A legislative committee investigating the deadly shooting at a Texas elementary school last month is set to hear more testimony from law enforcement officers. State Rep. Dustin Burrows, who is chairing the committee investigating the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, says they will hear more witness testimony from the Uvalde Police Department, and will speak with another officer from the school district police and a member of the Department of Public Safety. After Burrows' opening statements Monday, the committee went into executive session, blocking the public from hearing witness testimony. WNBA co-owner Ginny Gilder says fighting for equal treatment as a rower at Yale 46 years ago radicalized her. Gilder says what she has learned from that experience of being discriminated against for the first time in her life has helped her succeed in the business world. As Title IX marks its 50th anniversary this year, Gilder is one of countless women who benefited from the enactment and execution of the law, translating those opportunities into becoming leaders in their professional careers. Any success the WNBA has had Gilder says is because of the law, pointing out that “we wouldn't exist as a league without Title IX." France has awakened to an ecstatic Marine Le Pen after her party's far-right candidates for parliament sent shockwaves through the political establishment. They helped deny President Emmanuel Macron's centrist alliance an absolute majority. Le Pen's National Rally party didn't win the two rounds of voting in the parliamentary election that ended Sunday. But it secured more than 10 times the seats it won five years ago. It was only a couple of months ago that Le Pen lost the presidential election to Macron. But now it was her turn to gloat on Monday since she knows she can use the seats in the National Assembly to thwart Macron's domestic agenda. Britain is facing its biggest rail strikes in decades after last-minute talks between a union and train companies failed to reach a settlement over pay and job security. Up to 40,000 cleaners, signalers, maintenance workers and station staff are due to walk out for three days this week, on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The strike is expected to shut down the rail network across the country. Millions of people in Britain are seeing their cost of living soar, and unions say a new wave of strikes is likely if they don't get pay increases. The Conservative government says large raises will spark a wage-price spiral driving inflation even higher. —The Associated Press See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

2864 - Juneteenth & The Limits Of Celebrating The End Of Slavery w/ Robin D.G. Kelley

Sam and Emma host Robin D.G. Kelley, professor of American History at UCLA, to discuss Juneteenth, observed today. First, however, Sam and Emma dive into Gustavo Petro's victory in Colombia's presidential election over a mayoral tycoon, Melanchon's coalition topping Macron's (and both being beaten out by LePen's), Iowa's Supreme Court overturning the state constitution's protection of abortion rights, and the outright refusal of liberals to hold any ranking Republican accountable for the stochastic terrorism that led to 1/6. Then, they're joined by Professor Kelley as he first tackles the classic story behind the holiday, celebrating the arrival of Union forces in Galveston Texas to deliver the good news of emancipation, supposedly marking the official end of slavery in the US, and contrasts this with the way Black folks in Texas celebrated this moment, referring to it as a “jubilee” and a recognition of their divine sovereignty over their own life and land, as they look forwards to right to vote and the promise of reconstruction. Continuing off this, Kelley, Sam, and Emma discuss the actual history of the emancipation proclamation as leaving out some 450k enslaved people, the actual freedom of these people coming through their own agency and fight as they flocked to help union forces, and the role Texas played as a haven for slave owners escaping this “tyranny.” After touching on the continuation of this fight, with the right's bulwark against history and the liberals' own erasure in favor of uplifting a fallacy of unity, Professor Kelley dives into celebrating Juneteenth in a way that genuinely raises these issues and views this date as the start of a new war for reconstruction, working towards the reparations and decolonization that were seen in the promise of reconstruction, and expanding it to fights for indigenous people from Palestine to the US. Then they expand the discussion to the relationship between racism and capitalism (or just racial capitalism), how the birth of this economic system occurred in a European society that centered on racial and gendered differences for social delineations, and thus had access to a mode of thinking that legitimized the exploitation of “lesser” people. Next, they look to the development of capitalism in the United States, and how it built up white patrimony to deceive the majority of white Americans, and patriotism and nationalism for the rest, indoctrinating them into a world where racial and ethnic hierarchy are standards, before they wrap up the interview by emphasizing that class struggle is not colorblind, anti-racism is not anti-class, and that to truly fight these powers and live up to the promise of Juneteenth's jubilee, we have to simultaneously take on these overlapping systems. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma cover Trump speaking out against the accusations of him calling Mike Pence a wimP**** when really, he just meant Pence lacked courage, Brendan from PA calls in to discuss the upcoming Pennsylvania races and why the GOP is going unopposed in 3 of the 17 house races, and discuss the Democrats' desire to not politicize the 1/6 coup attempt. Adam Schiff discusses Clarence Thomas' conflicts of interest before Sonya Sotomayor comes to Thomas' rescue, because how could you ever force a man to resign when he knows his colleagues' names. Krystal Ball embarrasses Bill Maher by having a reasonable recollection of the last two years, Denis Prager calls out the left for refusing to debate him, and ignores the calls for debate, and a Missouri Senate Candidate, accused of all sorts of violence against women and children, launches his RINO Hunting campaign.

French President Macron's party lost its national assembly majority. The party will still be the largest, so cohabitation (president and prime minister of different parties) seems unlikely. A better analogy would be to the US situation, with the president needing to build a shifting coalition of support to get legislation passed. The far right party of former presidential candidate Le Pen increased support. Periods of economic structural change tend to lead to people looking for economic scapegoats, encouraging prejudice politics.

C'est du jamais vu, s'exclame Le Monde : « une majorité absolue envolée, deux partis contestataires consacrés comme premiers groupes d'oppositions, un président de l'Assemblée nationale défait… Au soir du second tour des élections législatives, la logique du scrutin majoritaire a craqué de toute part sous la pression de l'abstention et d'une campagne erratique entre coup d'éclat et invectives. Chose inédite sous la Ve République et encore davantage depuis 2002 et la réforme du calendrier électoral, l'Hémicycle va incarner la complexité d'un paysage politique fragmenté. » Terra incognita pour Macron En fait, analyse Libération, « c'est l'essence même du macronisme et la prétention d'aspirer la droite et la gauche qui se retrouve à terre : la nature politique ayant horreur du vide, cette stratégie aura finalement contribué à nourrir des oppositions radicales ou extrêmes sans proposer en face une offre politique capable d'être majoritaire. Le quinquennat qui s'ouvre ressemble à une terra incognita pour Emmanuel Macron. Qui forcera celui-ci à composer, discuter, négocier. Et c'est peu de dire que le président de la République n'a pas excellé dans cet exercice depuis cinq ans, que ce soit avec les élus ou avec les corps intermédiaires. Une faute sanctionnée aussi lors de ce scrutin législatif. Le chef de l'État n'a désormais pas le choix. Y est-il prêt ? » Ingouvernable ? Le Figaro renchérit : « comment gouverner l'ingouvernable ?

Encore faudrait-il que les macronistes l'assument, et que la droite l'accepte ! Sans attendre, ses principaux responsables l'ont à juste titre fait savoir : pas question de jouer, pour un plat de lentilles, les supplétifs du président. Dégager au cas par cas des majorités à géométrie variable ? Emmanuel Macron peut-il encore convaincre ? » s'interroge encore Le Figaro. « Alors que sa succession est déjà dans les esprits, le risque n'a jamais été si grand pour lui de rester dans l'histoire comme le spectateur impuissant d'un quinquennat mort avant d'avoir commencé. » Non, estime pour sa part Ouest France, « le pays n'est pas "ingouvernable" après ces résultats, mais le pouvoir va devoir faire l'objet d'un nouveau partage. C'est le choix des électeurs, qui imposent, par les urnes, une sévère cure d'humilité au maître des horloges. Il va être contraint de recomposer et compléter le gouvernement en tenant compte des nouveaux équilibres à l'Assemblée. Sa majorité n'aura pas d'autre choix que de s'appuyer sur les oppositions pour l'élaboration des lois. La République en marche ne peut plus rien imposer seule. Soit en bâtissant une nouvelle alliance avec Les Républicains. Soit en négociant chaque texte, demain, au coup par coup. Elle va devoir apprendre à faire des compromis. » Immenses défis… D'autant, prévient La Croix, que « la France ne peut se payer le luxe de l'instabilité dans la période périlleuse que nous traversons. Il serait inconscient de faire comme si nous venions de vivre une année électorale comme les autres. Comme si la guerre ne sévissait pas au cœur de l'Europe. Comme si la défense du climat n'appelait pas la mobilisation de tous. Comme si les taux d'intérêt n'allaient pas bientôt repartir à la hausse, et avec eux la pression sur notre dette publique. Comme si l'indifférence de la jeunesse – 75 % d'abstention chez les 18-24 ans au premier tour ! – n'était qu'un problème passager. Notre démocratie anémiée aura besoin du plus grand nombre, pour relever ces défis immenses. À commencer par un président qui tient son rôle de garant des institutions, sans plus pouvoir prétendre à lui seul porter tout le poids de l'édifice républicain. » L'intelligence ou le néant… Alors, Les Dernières Nouvelles d'Alsace lancent un appel à l'intelligence de nos élus : « s'ils veulent se rendre utiles à la collectivité, nos élus devront apprendre à s'écouter, mettre un mouchoir sur leurs égos, remiser au placard quelques vieilles lunes idéologiques. Le Bundestag allemand ou le Parlement européen ont démontré que cela était possible. À écouter hier soir Mélenchon, Le Pen ou certains membres du gouvernement présents sur les plateaux télévisés, le chemin est encore long. Mais puisqu'il s'agit de choisir entre l'intelligence ou le néant, l'espoir d'une prise de conscience est autorisé. »

Gavin Grey: Macron alliance projected to lose parliamentary majority

French President Emmanuel Macron's centrist alliance was projected to lose its majority despite getting the most seats in the final round of parliamentary elections Sunday, while the far-right National Rally appeared to have made big gains.The projections, which are based on partial results, say Macron's candidates would win between 230 and 250 seats — much less than the 289 required to have a straight majority at the National Assembly, France's most powerful house of parliament.The situation, which is highly unusual in France, is expected to make Macron's political maneuvering difficult if the projections are borne out.A new coalition — made up of the hard left, the Socialists and the Greens — is expected to become the main opposition force with about 140 to 160 seats.The National Rally is projected to register a huge surge with potentially more than 80 seats, up from eight before. Polling was held nationwide to select the 577 members of the National Assembly.The strong performance of both the National Rally and the leftist coalition called Nupes, led by hard-left leader Jean-Luc Melenchon, is expected to make it harder for Macron to implement the agenda he was reelected on in May, including tax cuts and raising France's retirement age from 62 to 65.Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne said the “unprecedented” situation “is a risk to our country faced with challenges at the national level as well as at the international scale.”“As the central force in that new Assembly ... we will work, as of tomorrow, to build an action-oriented majority," she said.“There's no alternative but gathering to guarantee our country some stability and lead the necessary reforms,” she added.Borne, who herself won a seat in western France, suggested Macron's centrist alliance will seek to get support from lawmakers from diverse political forces to find “good compromises.”The National Rally's leader, Marine Le Pen, who lost to Macron in the presidential election, was reelected as MP in her stronghold of Hénin-Beaumont, in northern France.“The Macron adventure has reached its end,” Le Pen said. The group of National Rally lawmakers “will be by far the biggest of the history of our political family.”Acting National Rally president Jordan Bardella compared his party's showing to a “tsunami.” “Tonight's message is that the French people made from Emmanuel Macron a minority president,” he said on TF1 television.“It's the electoral failure of the ‘Macronie',” Mélenchon said, criticizing "a moral failure of those people who lectured everyone non-stop and said they would block the far-right, and the main result is that they reinforced it.Macron's government will still have the ability to rule, but only by bargaining with legislators. The centrists could try to negotiate on a case by case basis with lawmakers from the center-left and from the conservative party — with the goal of preventing opposition lawmakers from being numerous enough to reject the proposed measures.The government could also occasionally use a special measure provided by the French Constitution to adopt a law without a vote.Government spokesperson Olivia Grégoire said on France 2 television that “we've known better evenings.”“This is a disappointing top position, but still a top position," she said.“We are holding out a helping hand to all those who are OK to make that country move forward,” she said, notably referring to The Republicans party, which is expected to have less seats than the far-right.A similar situation happened in 1988 under Socialist President Francois Mitterrand, who then had to seek support from the Communists or the centrists to pass laws.These parliamentary elections have once again largely been defined by voter apathy — with over half the electorate staying home.Audrey Paillet, 19, who cast her ballot in Boussy-Saint-Antoine in southeastern Paris, was saddened that so few people turned out.“Some people have fought to vote.

« Quels sont les objectifs dans la guerre entre l'Ukraine et la Russie ? La question est en train de couper l'Europe en deux », constate Le Monde. « Tandis que le conflit dure depuis plus de cent jours, la récente petite phrase d'Emmanuel Macron sur son souci de 'ne pas humilier la Russie' dans l'optique de négociations encore improbables, cette petite phrase est venue creuser le fossé entre les deux camps en présence. D'un côté, constate Le Monde, les pays baltes, la Pologne, sans oublier le Royaume-Uni, partisans d'une poursuite de la guerre dans la perspective, même lointaine, d'une défaite russe. De l'autre, la France, l'Allemagne et l'Italie, tenantes d'une ligne plus modérée, soucieuses à la fois d'aider l'Ukraine et de négocier avec Moscou afin de faciliter un cessez-le-feu. » Le blé comme arme… Et en attendant, la Russie poursuit ses offensives militaires pour asseoir sa domination, notamment dans la province du Donbass… La Russie qui continue aussi de manier « l'arme du blé » : c'est l'expression utilisée par La Croix. La Croix qui constate que « la guerre en Ukraine n'est pas qu'une affaire européenne. Même si elle se déroule sur notre continent, elle a des répercussions dans le monde entier. Elle perturbe de nombreux marchés, notamment dans les secteurs de l'énergie et de l'agroalimentaire. Le commerce du blé, dont la Russie et l'Ukraine sont les premier et quatrième exportateurs, est fortement affecté. De nombreux pays du bassin méditerranéen et d'Afrique en dépendent, mais aussi les agences de l'ONU chargées de prévenir les famines. L'échec de la rencontre d'hier entre les ministres des Affaires étrangères russe et turc est donc une mauvaise nouvelle, relève La Croix. (…) La Russie, de toute évidence, n'entend pas desserrer son étau, quitte à provoquer une hausse des cours du blé qui aggrave la situation dans les pays pauvres. Elle utilise ses propres exportations comme une arme diplomatique pour convaincre de nombreux pays du Sud de ne pas soutenir le front des pays occidentaux. » « Où est passée la droite ? » A la Une également, en France, quel avenir pour Les Républicains ? A trois jours du premier tour des législatives, « les Républicains jouent leur survie », pointe Le Figaro. « Les projections ne sont guère réjouissantes avec un groupe attendu d'une cinquantaine de députés quand le parti en espère plus de 80, contre près de 100 dans l'Assemblée sortante. » « Mais où est passée la droite ? », s'exclame Le Figaro. « Après la déroute, la débandade ? », se désole le journal. « Non contente de s'effondrer au premier tour de l'élection présidentielle, la droite classique, le temps de la campagne législative, a choisi, tel un bernard-l'hermite, de rentrer dans sa coquille, déplore Le Figaro. Après la déferlante Macron, la vague Le Pen, l'écume Zemmour, elle attend que se retire la marée Mélenchon. Le temps joue pour elle, disent ses 'stratèges', sans voir que les électeurs vont finir par s'habituer à cette absence. » Le centre de gravité de l'Assemblée ? « Dans quel état la droite va-t-elle ressortir de ces élections législatives ? », s'interroge en écho Le Courrier Picard. « Les sondages pronostiquent l'élection d'une cinquantaine de députés le 19 juin : un chiffre qui ne reflète cependant pas le poids politique que pourrait représenter ce petit groupe d'élus dans la future assemblée. » En effet, estime Le Courrier Picard, « si Emmanuel Macron n'obtient pas la majorité absolue, il devra composer avec cette droite, aussi affaiblie qu'elle puisse être, pour faire passer ses lois. Même en perdant les deux tiers de ses députés, la droite deviendrait alors le centre de gravité de l'Assemblée nationale. » Et on revient au Figaro qui confirme : « en cas de majorité absolue impossible à l'Assemblée, la droite se verrait bien en groupe charnière avec lequel le pouvoir devrait compter pour réformer. (…) Les LR excluent tout 'contrat de gouvernement' mais plutôt des positions ponctuelles, au fil des textes à voter. Devenir le groupe charnière serait une occasion pour LR de devenir un acteur central des réformes. » Trafic d'antiquités au Louvre Abou Dhabi Enfin cette enquête de Libération sur le trafic d'antiquités au Louvre Abou Dhabi : Libération qui « a consulté des mails et des rapports de police qui pointent les manquements de l'AFM, l'Agence France Museum, créée par la France pour conseiller le musée émirati, notamment lors de l'acquisition d'une stèle et d'un sarcophage à la provenance illicite. » Pour Libération, l'AFM est donc directement liée à ce trafic : « certaines pièces égyptiennes ayant été acquises avec de faux documents. »

Hace un mes Macron revalidaba quinquenio, estará hasta 2027 en el Elíseo pero necesita una mayoría parlamentaria para articular sus políticas.

Douglas Murray On Defending The West

Douglas Murray is a British writer and commentator, primarily for The Spectator, and his latest book is The War on the West. It’s a powerful narrative of the past couple of decades, in which a small minority waged ideological war on the underpinnings of Western civilization: reason, toleration, free speech, color-blind racial politics. You can listen to the episode right away in the audio player embedded above, or right below it you can click “Listen in podcast app,” which will connect you to the Dishcast feed. For two clips of our conversation — on the seductive power of ressentiment and the case for gratitude, and on many Americans’ ignorance of history outside the US — head over to our YouTube page.My convo with Murray complements the one I had with Roosevelt Montás, the great defender of the humanities at Columbia University and beyond — his episode is now available as a full transcript.As far as last week’s episode with Bari Weiss, an addendum: she used our conversation for her own podcast, “Honestly,” and her version includes at least a half hour of conversation you won’t find in the Dishcast version — namely on the early marriage movement and my role in it. Here’s a snippet from that section:This listener liked the episode:You and Bari addressed the (increasingly popular) argument that if the illiberal left has taken the gloves off, then its opponents should do the same. I thought your response was commendable, and it reminded me of something Hitch said during a debate on free speech many years ago. He referred to the scene from A Man for All Seasons in which Sir Thomas More argues with Roper over whether a man should be arrested for breaking God’s law. It’s a marvellous exchange that I have often reflected upon in recent years:Roper: So now you'd give the Devil benefit of law!More: Yes. What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?Roper: I'd cut down every law in England to do that!More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country's planted thick with laws from coast to coast — man's laws, not God's — and if you cut them down — and you're just the man to do it — do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law for my own safety's sake.Someone at Reason — Peter Suderman, I think — observed last year that politics is becoming outcomes-based rather than process-based, which expresses much the same point, I think. All of which is a long-winded way of saying that I’m glad you and Bari are willing to stand up for liberalism when so many of your peers have come to view it with disdain.I love that section from A Man For All Seasons. It’s why I chose Thomas More as my confirmation saint. But it’s difficult to know the best way to stand up for liberalism when it comes to gender ideology in schools, as Bari and I discuss in this clip:Another fan of the Bari episode gets more personal:I am the mother of a trans-identifying child — now 23 years old. (I can’t give my name for fear of alienating her.) You captured the rollercoaster of emotions many parents going through this feel — the fear that she has adopted this ideology as a coping mechanism to deal with underlying mental health issues and that she will do irreparable harm to her body. And that we are politically homeless. I can’t vote for anyone who would support Trump. But Biden and his team have it wrong when they quote the lie of “better a trans son than dead daughter.” I agree with DeSantis on many aspects of the so-called “don’t say gay” bill. I don’t think it’s appropriate to discuss sexual orientation and gender ideology with young children. I also don’t think it’s appropriate to review the periodic table with them. That doesn’t mean I'm anti-chemistry. What I wish for my daughter is that she not be beholden to gender stereotypes, that she be comfortable in her own body and that she avoid a lifetime of medical intervention with life-long negative consequences (including infertility) which cannot ultimately transform her into a man. If she were anorexic, we’d have support and options to return her to health. Because her coping mechanism is trans ideology, we get no support from medical or psychiatric professionals, from schools or from most liberals.You captured all that in the podcast. Thanks for getting the word out.Another listener points to another trans story:I saw this interview with an ex-transgender woman and thought you might find it interesting:I found particularly interesting the parts where he indicates that he found a group of “activists” that encouraged him to transition when what he really needed was therapy and sobriety. It’s also interesting that young men/woman fleeing the labels and baggage of “gay” or “lesbian“ may pursue gender reassignment, rather than unwrapping their trauma and accepting themselves for who they are.I just wish all the nuances of this were better aired. Another fan of the Dish anticipated our coverage this week with a “pre-emptive email”:I wonder whether the Supreme Court leak has caused you to reconsider your stance on the culture wars and whether it was the woke who are really the big enemy here. After all, while certain elements on the far left do much damage to themselves and to their own cause, their biggest achievements seem to be about gender-neutral toilets and pronouns, while it is the reactionary right that actively tries to curtail hard-won rights such as the right to vote, or the right to legal and safe abortion. Is it only a culture war when the left does it? Even when you have admitted that both sides are guilty, there seems to be a grudging reluctance to accept that one side is significantly more dangerous than the other, or to pretend as if it was the left’s fault all along and the right was merely reacting to it. Following on from January 6th and the wave of right-wingers across the globe currently dominating our news agenda (Putin, Trump, Bolsonaro, Orban, Le Pen, et al), it seems evident that there is a radical asymmetry in the scale of the threat that each side poses. Yes, there is much on the left that deserves to be called out, but it is nothing like as dangerous or as damaging as the very real risk that our liberal democratic norms are overturned by reactionaries in the name of a kind of Theocratic Nationalism. An approach that says “A plague on both your houses” seems to me the height of fatuity. Who is the bigger threat here, Donald Trump, or Bernie Sanders? There seems to be a skewed kind of moral equivalency going on. It reminds me of those US conservatives who used to say “Yes the Tea Party is terrible and there is real racism, but Obama is just as guilty for stirring them up.” This simply will not do. From the Tories and Brexit, to Putin and Ukraine, Republicans and abortion, is it not clear that everywhere you look at the moment, it is the right — the conservative, reactionary, radical right — that poses a greater and more urgent threat to our democratic way of life? There’s a balance to be struck here — and I’m not saying it’s easy. But the way in which the far left empowers the far right and vice-versa is an important part of the toxic dynamic. I’ll just note that, when push came to shove, I voted for Biden. There is no conceivable scenario in which I would vote for a deranged wannabe-tyrant like Trump. Next up, “a looong-time reader who discovered you in the early aughts”:After a discussion this evening with my housemate I was inspired to look for your It's So Personal threads.  I don't seem to see them in the Substack, and it looks like your dish.andrewsullivan.com site is no longer active. Can you make this thread available to revisit? The whole thread is compiled here. How I framed it at the time:Perhaps the best posts of 2009 were penned by readers, and the most illuminating, gripping and emotional posts were related to late-term abortion, in the wake of the assassination of the abortion doctor George Tiller. I’ve never seen the power of this blog medium so clearly and up-close: one personal account caused a stream of others. How could old-school reporting have found all these women? How could any third-person account compete with the rawness and honesty and pain of these testimonials? It was a revelation to me about what this medium could do.Another listener looks ahead:David French just wrote the op-ed, “A conservative Christian quietly battles against right-wing hysteria,” and he would be an excellent podcast guest.”David is actually scheduled to record a Dishcast later this month, so stay tuned. Another suggestion:Hope you are weathering Covid ok and are feeling better. Suggestion: check out the staggeringly brilliant new essay by N.S. Lyons, “The World Order Reset: China’s Ukraine Catastrophe, the Rise of Trans-Atlantis, and a New Age of Power.” You’ve linked to one of his essays previously, saying it depressed you for a week. You should try to interview this mystery person. Everybody is wondering who Lyons really is. It would be a real coup for your podcast/Substack.Thanks for the suggestion. We’ve actually been in touch.

Suzi talks to Alan Minsky and Harvey Kaye about the 21st Century Economic Bill of Rights, which they see as both a campaign platform and governing program to rescue and renew American democracy. This is more than a to-do or must-do list for progressives, but in their words, a compelling and transformative unifying project, a manifesto to advance democracy. We ask whether they think this program is feasible and realizable given the configuration of our political winner take all system?We then turn to the recent election in France, where incumbent Emmanuel Macron won with a 17% margin over Marine Le Pen. The period leading up to this election was far more uncertain. The contest had been narrowed from 12 parties in the first round, held April 10th, to the top two vote-getters, the centrist neoliberal Macron, and the far rightist Le Pen. Le Pen edged out the leftist Jean-Luc Mélenchon by a very narrow margin. The day before the election, we spoke with Sebastian Budgen, author of a recent article in the New Left Review blog, about the big question leading up to the election: Where would Mélenchon's votes go in the second round? Though a decisive number seemed to have held their noses to vote for Macron, 26% of the electorate stayed home—in effect abstaining. An insignificant 2% of voters either nullified or turned in a blank ballot. Budgen gives an analysis of the state of the French electorate that holds lessons and warnings for the future.

… and more on today’s CrossPolitic Daily News Brief. This is Toby Sumpter. Today is Tuesday, April 26, 2022. French President Emmanuel Macron won re-election to a second term on Sunday, beating far-right challenger Marine Le Pen. https://twitter.com/SBSNews/status/1518436382946914304?s=20&t=JmyST1xPkVhXKkXGViCwCA Play: 0:00-0:26 The election runoff was a rematch of their 2017 race, when the center-right Macron ran as a fresh face and trounced Le Pen 66.1 percent to 33.9 percent. Sunday's vote was closer but still decisive, with Macron, now running with a clear record, winning 58.5 percent to 41.5 percent. Biden said he felt good about the election, and was looking forward to talking to Macron Monday. https://twitter.com/therecount/status/1518611872139857921?s=20&t=9oZvYhXWZjIpSuf9IksCvw Play Audio Macron said his re-election was a win for "a more independent France and a stronger Europe," although he called it his duty to "respond effectively" to "the anger that has been expressed" in the campaign. Le Pen conceded defeat but said French voters showed they wanted a "strong counter power" to Macron. Is DeSantis Really Fighting or Just Shadow Boxing? Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill last Friday that revokes a special tax district which essentially gave Disney governing powers on its theme park land at Orlando. The new law was apparently an act of retribution for Disney's belated opposition to the controversial "Don't Say Gay" law approved just a few weeks earlier by the state's GOP-led legislature. "You're a corporation based in Burbank, California, and you're gonna marshal your economic might to attack the parents of my state," DeSantis said before signing the anti-Disney law. "We view that as a provocation, and we're going to fight back against that." The question is whether this commitment to "fighting back" probably means hurting Florida taxpayers. It's a complicated story, but the gist appears to be that revoking Disney's tax district essentially puts area residents on the hook for more than $1 billion in bonds the company used to pay for things like water service and new roads on its land. Local homeowners could see their taxes jump by 20 percent as a result – to the tune of 163 million per year. Orange County Tax Collector Scott Randolph, a Democrat and the former ranking member of the Florida House finance and tax committee, claims that if Reedy Creek ceases to exist, the residents of his county and neighboring Osceola will have to take on its tens of millions in bond payments and operational expenses currently paid by Disney, but will be left without the ability to collect revenue because the taxing authority will no longer exist. Randolph told FOX Business that could mean an increase in property taxes of 25% if Orange County has to absorb all of it. Florida state Rep. Randy Fine, the Republican who sponsored the legislation, told FOX Business that that argument is "just a scare tactic used by woke politicians." Fine acknowledges that the local entities where Reedy Creek lies will pick up the Reedy Creek's debt once the district is dissolved, but says those local governments can create Municipal Service Taxing Units (MSTU) that would also "pick up the revenue that would be going to pay for the debt." He insists that "There's no impact to taxpayers." Randolph argues that according to Florida statute, the local governments cannot impose MSTUs on Reedy Creek because it is an independent tax district. Therefore, he says, when that incorporated municipality dissolves, Disneywould have no obligation to pay the $163 million each year. Fine says that's why the service taxing units are municipal, and therefore not something handled by the state. "Scott Randolph's job is to open envelopes and to take out checks," the lawmaker told FOX Business. "He probably should stick to that. He doesn't set tax policy." In reply, Randolph said, "Randy Fine doesn't understand basic math." Raldolph says the bill against Disney was rushed through in 48 hours without legislators working out the details, but acknowledges that there is over a year for local municipalities to work out how they will manage the transition. After signing the legislation into law, DeSantis' office issued a statement clarifying that "it is not the understanding or expectation for SB 4-C, abolishing independent special districts, to cause any tax increases for the residents of any area of Florida." The new law undoing Disney's tax district doesn't actually take effect until June 2023, and observers think the company and the state might work out some kind of accommodation by then. The whole incident might end up as little more than a showy, performative in-kind contribution from the Florida Legislature to DeSantis' incipient 2024 presidential campaign. So the question is what is actually going on here? If DeSantis revoking some privileges from Disney, that seems reasonable, since Disney has publicly signaled that they are planning to do more grooming of Florida’s kids. At the same time, dropping a huge tax bill on that region could be detrimental, although maybe not as detrimental as Disney continuing to brainwash the children and families of Florida. At the same time, some transparency on taxes and funding would be nice. And the people of Florida who care about real freedom and virtue should want to see those numbers include indications of putting money and therefore freedom back in the pockets of the people of Florida, not government programs or temporary dispensations from the government.

In a press release issued Thursday, the zoo said it has received COVID-19 vaccines for animals developed and donated by Zoetis. According to the zoo, it has received 320 doses of the vaccine. Each animal will need two doses, administered two-to-three weeks apart. The zoo said it has 120 animals that have already or will soon receive a vaccine, “based on the COVID-19 sensitivity list that has been developed through on-going research and reports of positive cases in other zoos.” The release said zoos in the U.S. have been vaccinating their animals since 2021, adding that “to date there have been no significant adverse effects reported.” According to Dolf DeJong, CEO, Toronto Zoo, the zoo has not seen any positive cases of the virus within it’s animals during the pandemic. “Being able to add this extra layer of protection allows us to continue doing everything we can to provide them with the highest level of protection and medical care,” DeJong said. According to the zoo, animals are given the choice if they want a vaccine or not. Wait. What?! The zoo said animals undergo “positive reinforcement training” adding that many animals “willingly present an area of the body (such as an arm or tail) as part of their training exercises with their trusted keepers, with desirable treats often used as a reward for their participation.” The zoo said the training sessions are voluntary. The zoo said the training allows the animals to participate in other things like X-rays, blood draws, hoof trimming, which “allow the keepers and veterinary team to monitor their health regularly” without “causing the animals any undue stress.” You know this is hilarious. But it’s also full of propaganda. To call what these folks are doing to zoo animals “voluntary” and a “choice” is wicked. Now I don’t think animals need to be given any choices. They need to be cared for as creatures made by God, but man is responsible to take dominion over the creatures, to rule over them in wisdom. But in an evolutionary worldview, human beings are just animals, and so we can be locked in our homes, or in cages, and what is forced upon us can be called voluntary and our free choices, with just enough positive reinforcement training.

The theme of this year’s conference is Lies, Propaganda, Storytelling and the Serrated Edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government who has rejected God. We have especially been lied to these last two years, and the COVIDpanic has been one of the central mechanisms that our government has used to lie to us and to grab more power. Because Christians have not been reading their bibles, we are susceptible to lies and weak in our ability to fight these lies. God has given us His word to fight Satan and his lies, and we need to recover all of God’s word, its serrated edge and all.

While “exceptional” candidates may be considered for an assistant professor position, the advertisement makes it clear that you cannot be one of these candidates if you are a male. “This call is open only to qualified individuals who self-identify as women, transgender, non-binary, or two-spirit.” The term “two-spirit” referring to an Indigenous person who identifies as more than one gender. The university did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Daily Wire. Applicants are required to “self identify” through a university survey, which first asks applicants to select whether they identify as a woman, a man, transgender, “gender-fluid and/or non-binary,” two-spirit, or “prefer not to answer.” The applicant is then asked to select the option they identify with: asexual, bisexual, gay, lesbian, pansexual, straight or heterosexual, other, or “prefer not to answer.” “Select all that apply,” the survey notes. The University of Waterloo emphasizes that it seeks to attract “outstanding and diverse faculty members with the goal of being recognized as one of the top innovative universities in the world,” noting that “embedding equity, diversity and inclusivity across the research enterprise enhances research excellence.” “As such, we encourage applications from candidates who have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including applicants who identify as Indigenous peoples (e.g., First Nations, Métis, Inuit/Inuk), Black, racialized, people with disabilities, women and/or 2SLGBTQ+,” the advertisement says. In the university’s advertisement it notes that the candidate “will propose an innovative program of high-quality research that will attract external funding and excellent, well qualified and diverse graduate students.” “Evidence of an active research program with emphasis on climate and/or climate change science, water science and sustainability, or future cities and a successful record of Tri-Agency research funding, or equivalent, is required,” the advertisement says. “Ability and desire to partner with faculty in closely related fields is required.” Psalm of the Day: Psalm 148 https://www.christkirk.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/18-Psalm-148-From-Heavn-O-Praise.mp3 Play: 0:00-0:41 Amen.

Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine has transformed Europe within a matter of weeks. A continent once fractured by the refugee crisis is now taking in millions of refugees. Countries such as Germany have made considerable pledges to increase military spending. The European Union said it would cut off Russian oil and gas “well before 2030” — a once unthinkable prospect. The European project seems more confident in itself than at any other time in recent history.But some European countries are also seeing trends in the opposite direction. This month in Hungary, Prime Minister Viktor Orban's nationalist government won re-election easily. The far-right leader Marine Le Pen lost this past weekend's French presidential election to the incumbent, Emmanuel Macron, but secured a significant 41.5 percent of the vote, up from 33.9 percent in 2017. And nationalist movements — Brexit in Britain, the Five Star Movement in Italy and others — have become potent political forces in recent years.So what's next for Europe? Will Putin's invasion reinvigorate the collective European project? Or will the continent revert to its preinvasion path of fracture, division and nationalism?Ivan Krastev is the chairman of the Center for Liberal Strategies in Sofia, Bulgaria and the author of numerous books, including “After Europe” and, with Stephen Holmes, “The Light That Failed: Why the West Is Losing the Fight for Democracy.” He's also one of my favorite people to talk to on the subject of Europe, liberalism, democracy and the tensions therein.We discuss how European identity went from revolving around war to being centered on economic trade, why Europe has treated the Ukrainian refugee crisis so differently from previous refugee crises, how the West's overly economic understanding of human motivation blinded it to Putin's plans, what the relative success of politicians like Le Pen and Orban means for the future of Europe, how fears of demographic change can help explain phenomena as different as Putin's invasion and Donald Trump's election, whether Putin's invasion can reawaken an exhausted European liberalism and much more.Mentioned:“The End of History?” by Francis FukuyamaThe End of History and the Last Man by Francis Fukuyama“We Are All Living in Vladimir Putin's World Now” by Ivan Krastev“The Crisis of American Power: How Europeans See Biden's America” by Ivan Krastev“The Power of the Past: How Nostalgia Shapes European Public Opinion” by Catherine E. de Vries and Isabell Hoffmann from Bertelsmann StiftungBook Recommendations:Free by Lea YpiThe Age of Unpeace by Mark LeonardTime Shelter by Georgi GospodinovThoughts?
