Hanukkah (mostly not) on the Hill: Over 400 people gather virtually for Parliament's first national candle-lighting ceremony

For years, "Hanukkah on the Hill" has been an annual in person event for Jewish Members of Parliament and politicians from all stripes, including the prime minister and leaders of the opposition. Hanukkiahs are lit, prayers are said, politics get set aside. But things looked a little different this year. While some politicians got together in-person, including the organizers, Liberal MPs Anthony Housefather and Ya'ara Saks, most others joined in virtually—including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Conservative leader Erin O'Toole, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, senators, judges, rabbis, Dr. Isaac Bogoch, Irwin Cotler and well over 400 guests who lit their own hanukkiahs from the privacy of their homes. If you missed it, you can hear highlights from the event on today's episode, including concerns over the growing threat of antisemitism nationwide and what Ottawa pledges to do about it in 2022. What we talked about: Read about the "driftwood menorah" built on Bowen Island at bowenislandundercurrent.com Credits The CJN Daily is written and hosted by Ellin Bessner (@ebessner on Twitter).

Fan of the show? https://www.patreon.com/newleftradio (Support us on Patreon)! It's time to reimagine what our government does on behalf of Canadians, how it does it, and who it serves. It's time to rekindle democratic socialism for a new path forward for Canada. Andrew Jackson joins to discuss his new book which lays out the arguments for a future that turns away from capitalism and towards replacement with something altogether different. About The Fire and the Ashes: Rekindling Democratic Socialism In The Fire and the Ashes, long-time union economist and policy analyst Andrew Jackson looks back on a fascinating career in the labour movement, the NDP, and left politics, combining keen historical analysis with a political manifesto for today. As one of the few trade union economists in Canada, Jackson brings a unique insider perspective and decades of experience to bear on his critical reflections on the history and changing fortunes of the NDP, the failures of neoliberalism, and the waning and recent renewal of the democratic socialist tradition. What plays out is a battle of ideas fought by Jackson and the wider left—one meant to rekindle both political veterans and a new generation of activists who believe that a true democracy cannot exist with great inequalities of wealth and political power, and that social ownership and public investment must be brought squarely into the mainstream. https://btlbooks.com/book/the-fire-and-the-ashes (Buy the book here) About Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson is the Broadbent Institute's Senior Policy Advisor. In September, 2012 he retired from a long career as Chief Economist and Director of Social and Economic Policy with the Canadian Labour Congress. In 2011, he was awarded the Sefton Prize by the University of Toronto for his lifetime contributions to industrial relations. Educated at the University of British Columbia and the London School of Economics and Political Science, where he earned a B. Sc. and an M.Sc. in Economics, Andrew is the author of numerous articles and five books, including Work and Labour in Canada: Critical Issues, which is now in its second edition with Canadian Scholars Press.

ch. 1: In a Canadian television exclusive, The New Reality gets behind-the-scenes access to Opener – an innovative aviation and aerospace company developing a flying car. What sets this company apart is not only the technology and engineering but how fundamentally Canadian it is. For example, the CEO is Canadian, the Director of Operations, Test and Propulsion is Canadian and even the lead pilot is Canadian. The company, which is based in Palo Alto, California, is opening their doors to TNR and showing us how it flies. Guest: Krysia Collyer, Producer of the New Reality ch. 2: What is it about POP that we love so much? We know it's unhealthy, we know there is way too much sugar, and we know it can be addictive, but why do so many people still choose that as their drink of choice. We all know that one person who always seems to be sipping on a bottle of coke, pepsi, sprite, etc. Guest: Ashley Gearhardt, Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan and the Food and Addiction Science & Treatment Lab ch. 3: British Columbia's hospitality sector is expressing cautious optimism in the wake of Tuesday's announcement that capacity limits for indoor events will be lifted next week for large parts of the province. But while the move is good news to the struggling sector, many operators say they still have questions about how things will play out. Guest: Ingrid Jarrett, President, and CEO of BC Hotel Association ch. 4: Vancouver Whitecaps FC have won their first two of five matches over 17 days and are set to take on San Jose Earthquakes this Saturday, October 23 at PayPal Park in San Jose, California. Wednesday's historic come-from-behind 3-2 win over Cascadia rivals Portland Timbers has vaulted the 'Caps into a playoff spot and seventh place in the Western Conference with 43 points. The 'Caps are one point behind sixth place Minnesota United FC, two points behind fifth place Los Angeles Galaxy and three points behind fourth place Portland. Guest: Vanni Sartini, Acting head coach of the Vancouver Whitecaps ch. 5: All week long the NDP government has been facing criticism over proposed changes to the Freedom of Information Laws in this province. We've heard the phrase “a modest fee” more times than I care to count. But is $25 to even FILE  request a modest fee? When only one province - Alberta - does the same? The rest charge either $5 or no fee at all.  Guest: Lisa Beare, BC Minister of Citizens' Services ch. 6: As the overdose crisis continues in BC, one BC MLA is sharing his story of addiction. BC Green MLA Adam Olsen, battled a cocaine addiction when he was in his 20's, and now he wants to open up about his journey. Guest: Adam Olsen, BC  Green MLA for Saanich North and the Islands ch. 7: British Columbia's forests minister has introduced a bill to amend the Forest and Range Practices Act in what she says will “reshape” forest management in the province. Katrine Conroy told the legislature the proposed changes align forestry legislation with the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act passed in late 2019 and introduce “new tools to establish resilient forests.” She says the changes would include improved processes for reforestation after wildfires and more collaborative planning between Indigenous nations, government, the forest industry and other stakeholders.

The federal NDP say they plan to press the federal Liberals for a "tax on the ultra-rich". The 1% tax on wealth over $10 million could bring in billions, but critics warn it could also lead to an exodus of capital. Tracy Johnson looks to Europe, where several countries imposed a wealth tax in the 90's, but most have since abandoned the idea. Why? Also on the show, during the pandemic Canadians turned to credit and debit cards in even greater numbers. Convenient? Sure! But small businesses say they're paying for our obsession with plastic.

Now that Rosie and Elamin have mostly — mostly — caught up on sleep after Monday's big night, they're ready to look ahead at what happens next. Sure, this new Parliament may look pretty similar to the last, but each federal party now has plenty of questions to grapple with: how do the Liberals move forward with their agenda in another minority? Will the Conservative Party have to re-identify who they are? Will the NDP devise a list of demands they expect the Liberals to fulfill in order to secure their support? And what happens next with the Green Party, and the People's Party of Canada? As Rosie points out, there's an endless stream of stories to follow once an election wraps up — and a new Parliament could very well bring significant change to this country.

So what was the point of all that?  The Liberals are back with another minority almost the mirror image of the one that wasn't good enough for them just six weeks ago.  The Conservatives get more votes, the Liberals get more seats. The NDP makes no breakthroughs and still sits in fourth place behind the Bloc. Deja vu all over again.

Sam and Emma host Samuel Moyn, Professor of History at Yale University, to discuss his recent book Humane: How the United States Abandoned Peace and Reinvented War, on how the evolving face of the American Empire has changed the way we perceive war, and what we can do to get the conversation back on track. Starting all the way back in the mid-19th Century, Professor Moyn dives into the first Geneva Convention and the attempt by the Swiss to make war more humane, as well as the response by some like Leo Tolstoy who worried that it might, in fact, further legitimize war. He, Sam, and Emma then situate the role of America in all of this, jumping off of the massacres of the Vietnam War and the changes both in Geneva law – focused around civilians and collateral damage – and in the perspective of the US military, that it inspired, before moving back to how the two World Wars and transatlantic combat put the US at the warfront of the western empires, locking them into brutal wars to “keep the peace” ever since. Next, they look into why the backlash to the brutalities of Vietnam was so much more severe than that of the war on terror, situating the former within a pre-existing anti-war movement, and then jump into the role of Barack Obama in really cementing the ideology of the “humane” war through public declarations of both the need for constant warfare, and the need for humane warfare. They wrap up the interview with a conversation on the role of technology in bolstering the Rumsfeldian light warfare, and summarize the evolution of, and what we could see next from, the American empire. Emma and Sam also touch on Manchin's mumbling maneuvers to avoid getting too into the numbers of the Infrastructure Package, despite his recent complaints about the numbers. And in the Fun Half: Gabe from Ontario calls in to get out the vote for the NDP in the upcoming Canadian election, Sandy from Ontario boosts that message before getting a warm thank you for her incredible gift to the MR studio, and Nicholas from St. Louis converses with Sam and Emma on the differences in pushing for individual lifestyle changes (veganism) and pushing for actual policy change. The MR crew also explores the social (rather than immune) boost Joe Rogan got from ivermectin, discusses the recent and growing legitimization of George W. Bush and his administration's war crimes, and reflects on the disasters of Rudy Giuliani past, present, and future. They wrap up the fun half with Tucker Carlson finally speaking on a topic he has expertise in (lying and using your power to protect the powerful) and the progression of recent anti-Mask Mandates, plus, your calls and IMs!

2662 - A Begrudging Nod to Biden's Firm Stance On The Afghanistan Withdrawal w/ Alex Pareene

The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Play Episode Listen Later Aug 27, 2021 97:09


It's Casual Friday! Emma hosts Alex Pareene, contributing editor at The New Republic and author of The AP newsletter on Substack, to wrap up the events of the week. Emma starts off with some righteous indignation towards former Trump National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster saying to resident CNN Pentagon stenographer Jim Sciutto that the ISIS-K attacks in Kabul may have been a setup by the Taliban to make the Americans look bad. Anything to beat that war drum! Then, Emma and Alex get into how the media framing of the withdrawal most likely has a significant hand in Biden's approval ratings dipping, while buttressing a narrative that the "way" that this withdrawal is transpiring could look any less chaotic and fraught. They both acknowledge the reality that the mainstream press is unwilling to and, surprisingly, that Biden and his national security team is: War is tragic and chaotic, losing a war is the same, and that's what happened: the U.S. lost this war and needs to evacuate, the cost notwithstanding. They both reflect on their relief and general surprise that Biden has not bent to the narratives being constructed by the media and politicians on both sides of the aisle for the sake of maintaining the position of withdrawal at basically all costs. Alex partially attributes this to Biden's stubbornness borne fully out of his "Senate brain". They also remark on hypothetically what Trump would've done while he was president if push came to shove, and how it definitely doesn't square with his public remarks. They then touch upon the Supreme Court striking down the CDC's eviction moratorium, how to combat what's essentially an unaccountable judicial legislature, and the right's bizarre turn towards hawking ivermectin to their constituents as a COVID treatment. Pretty suspect that they're casting aspersions on a free vaccine but are cool with recommending to their voters they pay for a Merck-produced horse dewormer! Emma ends the first half by watching Biden hang his head at his press conference, fully perturbed by Peter Doocy's excessive nattering. Even Doocy can't make Biden change his mind on the withdrawal! And in the second half, Emma is joined by Lance of The Serfs TV to discuss the snap elections going on in Canada on September 20th. Lance provides a primer on Canada's parliamentary electoral system, as well as what's at stake for Trudeau, Trudeau's party the Liberals, the Conservatives, and the more progressive NDP. He continues to explain Trudeau's bristling at working with other parties, his desire to get back into a Liberal majority as a result, and how he has a strong tendency to maintain appearances and optics on thorny issues like public assistance and First Nations relations, while actively combatting them in less visible ways. Lance then continues to break down the election projections coming out of Canada's own 538, 338, why to trust the seat projections by party over total vote projections, the more peripheral parties and their outlooks heading into September, Lance's own work in assisting indigenous NDP candidates get elected to Parliament, and what is most likely in store for Canada as September 20th gets closer and closer. And in the Fun Half, Emma, Matt and Bradley discuss what's going on with the Line 3 pipeline protests in St. Paul, Minnesota, Jenna Ellis accusing Biden of treason for something her former boss Trump literally did (negotiate with the Taliban), Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger going on CNN's airwaves to lay blame at the feet of both Trump and Biden for the failures of the withdrawal (think you're missing a few presidents there Adam buddy!), and Trump himself calling into Hannity last night to rant about how stupid the people he literally hired, namely McMaster and John Bolton, are for how they handled Afghanistan while again, it can't be stated clearly enough, they literally worked for him, when he was the literal President of the United States.

The biggest loser in this battle is Liberals who increasingly become the party of the elite and out of touch. It's a smart strategy. Political battles are won and lost on the terrain of culture, and O'Toole is expertly appealing to the cultural and class divides in Canada, foraging a new working-class conservatism which appreciates the quickness to demand and end to flags at half staff in recognition of the residential ‘school' atrocities, while also speaking to the economic concerns of Canadian workers.
