In their new book "Peril," Bob Woodward and Robert Costa released a previously unpublished memo by a man named John Eastman, who served as an attorney advising President Trump during the 2020 election. That memo outlined an anti-democratic six-step plan for Vice President Pence to overturn the election results — stealing the election in favor of Trump — by refusing to tally votes from states with "multiple slates of electors," throwing the final decision to the House of Representatives. It was presented to Pence by Trump and Eastman in the Oval Office during the days leading up to January 6th, and offers a chilling look at the lengths to which Trump was prepared to go in order to maintain power.  It also offers a new opportunity to examine the activities of John Eastman, who entered the spotlight in 2020 when he published an op-ed in Newsweek making the false claim that Kamala Harris was ineligible for the Vice Presidency. Back then, Brooke spoke with Slate's Mark Joseph Stern, who described the origins of this birtherism falsehood and how Eastman and his organization, the Claremont Institute, used the media to spread it.

Birth, August 1965. Death, July 2021. So now what for multiracial democracy? Mark Joseph Stern, who covers the Supreme Court for Slate, explains how the Roberts Court has rewritten the Voting Rights Act to render it a dead letter law. We explore what, if anything, can be done to revive it. And Kai talks with Vann Newkirk II, a senior editor at The Atlantic, about a recent essay in which he tracks the legacy and impact of the Voting Rights Act alongside his family's history in Mississippi. Influenced by his mother's tenacity in exercising her right to vote, he reflects on her dedication to this civic duty and imagines how to preserve that access for the sake of a real democracy. Companion listening for this episode: A Zombie Political Party (Oct 19, 2020) The Republican Party seems more interested in protecting minority rule, than winning elections. Kai talks with Charlie Sykes, founder and editor of The Bulwark, about his own journey away from the GOP, and the party's journey away from democracy. They've Never Wanted You to Vote (Oct 26, 2020) From poll taxes to the canard of “voter fraud,” it's always been a struggle to cast a ballot in America. We review the record, and investigate the anti-democracy enablers of 2020.  “The United States of Anxiety” airs live on Sunday evenings at 6pm ET.

Sam and Emma host Slate's Justice and Courts writer Mark Joseph Stern to dive into last week's SCOTUS rulings on voting rights restrictions and then Brian Concannon from Project Bluelight, joins to discuss Haitian Prime Minister Jovenel Moïse's assassination. Emma, Sam, and Mark pick up their discussion from last week on the heels of two massive SCOTUS decisions centering on free and fair elections. They first touch on Justice Roberts's 40 year battle against Section 2 of the VRA, coming to a close in Brnovich v DNC where the Court ruled that disparate impact cannot apply to forms of voting (absentee and early) that were not present during the 1982 writing of the law. Next, they explore the Americans for Prosperity v Becerra ruling that takes on the only regulations left by Citizens United, overturning the disclosure requirement, before Stern looks forward from these decisions towards the conservative Court's target of campaign finance laws. Brian Concannon then joins to help us contextualize the assassination of Haitian President-turned-Dictator Moïse within both Haitian domestic politics and as a result of centuries-long destructive intervention and by the U.S. Emma and Sam round out the first half by previewing Sam's debate with Yaron Brook, and admiring JD Vance's ability to prove mainstream media wrong about “reasonable” conservatives once again. And in the Fun Half: Libertarian and Chairman of the Board at the Ayn Rand Institute Yaron Brook joins to debate Sam on the validity and possibility of free markets, where the internet came from (sorry Al Gore), why the correlation between the development of capitalism and the triangle slave trade actually DIDN'T build immense wealth for the Global North, because it also destroyed the South, and whether or not every-day citizens should be responsible for the knowledge of the experts they are advised by, and if society should mitigate mistakes that people make. Then, the crew reflects on the conversation, before pondering the deeper reasons that folks like Tucker Carlson's and Matt Walsh's desire to watch children, TX Gov challenger Allen West reminds us of the horrors of Marx's ultimate weapon of… progressive income tax, plus, your IMs!

Sam hosts Mark Joseph Stern, staff writer at Slate covering law and the courts, joins Sam to discuss the biggest cases of the recent Supreme Court term, and the implications of the rulings on cases like TransUnion v. Ramirez and Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassid. They start with a discussion on SCOTUS' ruling against Union Organizing on California Farms, deciding that businesses must be compensated for any union leader setting foot on their property, and how the laws struck down stem from Caesar Chaves' union organizing in the 60s and 70s attempting to give migrant workers the possibility of banding together. Mark and Sam look into how the current conservative court is taking on the responsibility of determining what is and isn't considered harm, and, unsurprisingly, seem to be much more concerned with what could be a burden on private property and enterprise than what could be considered harming individuals or workers. In particular, they explore how the Roberts court is tossing the concept of judicial restraint to the side in favor of allowing businesses the freedom to use our information as they please (as long as it doesn't go too wrong), and ensuring states have the right to kick people out of their houses. They also touch on how American political discourse ignores the responsibility of the court's decisions when it comes to their real-world repercussions, and look forwards to the last few impending cases of this term. Sam rounds out the first half by reflecting on the legacy of one Donald Rumsfeld and how hundreds of thousands of civilian lives could still be around had this moment come around a couple of decades earlier. And in the Fun Half: Matt, Matt, Brendan, and Brandon run the show, starting the testosterone-led half of the show off with some Hulk Hogan talk, and Dave from Scranton calls in to chat culture war on the online web of the Right. Then, Chris from MI centers the opioid epidemic in a discussion on the neoliberal culture in healthcare and the crew chats NYC mayoral mayhem before moving on to the behind the scenes debacles at “free speech” social media platforms Gab and Parler that caused their relationships to the Trumps to fall through. They field calls from Finn and Mark, covering some fun Crowder factoids and the best way to sell medicare for all to a conservative, and then Matt and Brandon deep dive into the continued chaos unfolding from the Jan 6th insurrection.

He is also the author of the book, American Justice 2019: The Roberts Court Arrives. Mark is a graduate of Georgetown University and the Georgetown University Law Center. His writing is available at slate.com and @mjs_DC on Twitter.
