Earlier this month, E Jean Carroll won an unprecedented legal victory: in a civil suit, Donald Trump was found liable for sexual abuse against her in the mid-nineteen-nineties, and for defamation in later accusing her of a hoax. But no sooner was that decision announced than Trump reiterated his defamatory insults against her in a controversial CNN interview. Carroll has now filed an amended complaint, in a separate suit, based on Trump's continued barrage. But can anything make him stop? “The one thing he understands is money,” Carroll's lawyer, Roberta Kaplan, tells David Remnick. “At some point he'll understand that every time he does it, it's going to cost him a few million dollars. And that may make a difference.” Carroll acknowledges that Trump will keep attacking her to get a laugh—“a lot of people don't like women,” she says simply—but she is undaunted, telling Remnick, “I hate to be all positive about this, but I think we've made a difference, I really do.” Plus, the staff writer Dexter Filkins on Ron DeSantis, who finally announced his Presidential candidacy this week. In 2022, Filkins profiled the Florida governor as his national ambitions were becoming clear. “He's very good at staking out a position and pounding the table,” Filkins notes, “saying, ‘I'm not giving in to the liberals in the Northeast.' ”

The New Yorker: Politics and More
Donald Trump has always presented a problem for journalists. His years as a reality-television star taught him to outmaneuver facts and control narratives. Now as Trump's second Presidential run gets under way, these skills are proving useful yet again. At CNN's recent town hall, Trump answered questions in front of a live and sympathetic audience—a situation that played directly to his strengths as a performer. For Jelani Cobb and Steve Coll, New Yorker writers and Columbia Journalism School faculty members, the town hall raised some questions: Where is the line between coverage and promotion? And what is the role of news organizations in the age of political polarization? Cobb and Coll join Tyler Foggatt to discuss the dilemmas that journalists face when reporting on the former President and his 2024 campaign.

The Rich Zeoli Show- Hour 3: The Drive at 5: Appearing on Fox News with Trey Gowdy, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis vowed, if elected president, to fire Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Christopher Wray. Gov. DeSantis also confirmed that he would not support putting U.S. troops on the ground in Ukraine. While appearing on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Jamie Harrison was asked to comment on Ron DeSantis' presidential announcement. Harrison pivoted and said of the Republican presidential nominees, “they are all bad…they are all extreme.” Numerous news reports are suggesting that Amanda Gorman's inauguration poem was “banned” from Florida schools—but is moving the poem to a different section of one school's library synonymous with a ban? Speaking with Trey Gowdy on Fox News, Senator Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) accused the Biden Administration of being unprepared for the end of Title 42—and subsequent illegal border crossings.
BREAKING NEWS: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis formally announces his candidacy for U.S. President during a live-streamed interview on Twitter Spaces alongside billionaire Elon Musk and PayPal co-founder David Sacks. Unfortunately, the announcement was plagued with technical issues—taking nearly twenty-minutes to sort out the problems before DeSantis was able to speak. Will this less-than-ideal launch have a lasting impact on his campaign?

DeSantis is expected to formally announce his candidacy during a live-streamed interview on Twitter with billionaire Elon Musk. 3:15pm- According to polling organizations like CNN, Quinnipiac, and Harvard-Harris which have recently measured support among Republicans in the 2024 Presidential Primary, former President Donald Trump currently leads Florida Governor Ron DeSantis by 27% or more.

Ron DeSantis' presidential announcement taking place on Twitter, CNN analyst Sara Fischer warned that this is a “scary time” for Rupert Murdoch and Fox News. 3:50pm- Henry ruins The Rich Zeoli Show tribute to Tina Turner…PLUS will Ron DeSantis' presidential campaign announcement be boring? It could be more exciting than most people are expecting—because Elon Musk has proven repeatedly that he is capable of doing/saying anything. 4:05pm- Tobias Peter—Research Fellow & Assistant Director of the American Enterprise Institute's Housing Center—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss an editorial he co-authored with Edward Pinto, “Biden Courts Another Mortgage Crisis.” Peter and Pinto write: “The Biden administration is making moves that could imperil the safety of the housing finance system. Recent mortgage pricing changes, which have generally decreased fees for borrowers with lower credit scores and increased fees for those with higher scores, have rightly garnered public outcry, but they are the tip of the iceberg. The administration's other changes require just as much attention, particularly since the reigning mantra of the White House is to strengthen ‘racial equity and support for underserved communities'—regardless of who gets hurt or how much it costs. Missed in the debate about loan-level pricing changes is that the Federal Housing Finance Agency already distorts the riskiness of loans it originates, and ultimately taxpayers are on the hook for those loans.” You can read the full editorial here: https://www.wsj.com/articles/biden-courts-another-mortgage-crisis-federal-housing-finance-agency-mortgage-loans-risk-2008-homeownership-fe752269?mod=opinion_lead_pos7 4:25pm- On June 16th, the Los Angeles Dodgers will be hosting the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence—a far-left, self-described LGBTQ+ affiliated group that has gained notoriety by mocking Catholics. 4:45pm- Target has begun removing “LGBTQ+” related merchandise from its stores and websites.

Cori Bush (D-MO) outlandishly claimed that gas stoves were killing people—including many of her constituents. The progressive congresswoman seemingly called for a ban on gas stoves…while defiantly emphasizing “this is not a ban on gas stoves!” 5:30pm- According to a hidden camera interview with a Special Assistant for Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA), the senator would be “okay with…overturning the second amendment.” The interview was conducted by O'Keefe Media Group. 5:45pm- Last week, several Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) whistleblowers testified before a House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. The hearing addressed alleged abuses of power by leadership within the FBI. In his opening statement, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) warned the FBI whistleblowers that following their testimony before Congress they would likely be improperly targeted by elements of the federal government—citing Matt Taibbi as an example of what could happen. Four days after testifying before Congress, Internal Revenue Service officers alarmingly showed up to the home of independent journalist Matt Taibbi. 6pm: BREAKING NEWS: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis formally announces his candidacy for U.S. President during a live-streamed interview on Twitter Spaces alongside billionaire Elon Musk and PayPal co-founder David Sacks.

Earlier today, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott entered the race for President. That makes him the sixth Republican candidate to get into the race, in a crowded attempt to beat the current frontrunner, former President Donald Trump. So for today's episode, a rerun of my conversation with Tim Scott from last summer. As you'll hear, Scott's approach is fundamentally different from many of his fellow republicans in that he's the ultimate optimist. In part, that optimism comes from his own story. Scott's grandfather picked cotton in the segregated south. He never learned to read or write. Within two generations, without money or connections, his grandson became a U.S. senator, and today, throws his hat in to become President of the United States. Scott told me he is frustrated at all the pessimism, including from inside his own party — and he's frustrated at the notion that America is in decline. Though I hope Scott is right, you'll hear that I challenge him on that idea. I see very good reasons for Americans to be fed up with the state of the union and deeply worried about the future of the country. We also talked about Trump, the state of the GOP and what it's like to be the Senate's only black Republican. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Majority Report with Sam Seder
It's an EmMajority Report Thursday! Emma makes her triumphant return from the West Coast. She speaks with Henry Grabar, staff writer at Slate, to discuss his recent book Paved Paradise: How Parking Explains The World. Then, she is joined by Marilyn Thompson, reporter at ProPublica, to discuss her recent reporting in South Carolina on Rep. James Clyburn. First, Emma runs through updates on the continuing attacks on Mifepristone, Illinois' semi-auto ban, dwindling trust in the Supreme Court, DeSantis' pending entrance into the Presidential race, Montana's TikTok ban, and border patrol violence, also touching on the breaking news around Pelosi's role in delaying Dianne Feinstein's exit from the Senate, in the hopes of securing said seat for protégé Adam Schiff. Henry Grabar dives right into the absurdity of having a car-centric society, with land dominated by parking lots, where the constant question is “Why no parking?” He first tackles the base desire for free, convenient, and available parking, and the problems that each one of these elements creates, ultimately generating a lack of available parking in high-density areas and/or suburban sprawl, alongside the “if you build it [parking spots] they [more drivers needing to park] will come” nature of the issue. Next, Grabar walks Emma through the history of parking as a planning issue, beginning with the popularization of the Model-T at the start of the 20th Century, with the US ultimately settling on various requirements for the creation of parking alongside any new buildings, and how this, once again, created a misappropriation of land to parking, disincentivized the creation of myriad types of housing, from broader affordable housing to architectural models like rowhouses, and spurred NIMBYism. Wrapping up, they parse through the various environmental impacts of the parking issue, and how various levels of politics are tackling the issue. Marilyn Thompson then joins, as she explores her recent report on Rep. Clyburn's work with the South Carolina GOP on planning their severely gerrymandered congressional map, tailoring the Sixth Congressional District to his liking. After working through Clyburn's history with the district, Thompson establishes why this tactic is so backward and actively hurts Democratic and Black representation in South Carolina. And in the Fun Half: Emma is joined by Brandon Sutton and Matt Binder as they touch on autonomous Teslas' continued insistence on subtly breaking laws, talk with Ethan from Sports Twitter about Nancy Pelosi's role in keeping Dianne Feinstein in office and the absurdity of painting this as “feminist” when it's ultimately about keeping another woman out of office, and watch Ben Shapiro wax poetic about the bane of humanity (Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition). Marty from Houston discusses the financial impact of the culture war on Drag, RFK – the supposed progressive – claims that “it's the politicians, not the capitalists” that are the issue, and Dylan from New Mexico reflects on the cultivated inhumanity around the homeless people in our society. They wrap up by watching Machaela Cavanaugh and Jermaine Johnson speak out against fascism on their respective statehouse floors, plus, your calls and IMs!

The Future Is Beautiful with Amisha Ghadiali
How do we catalyse political and cultural shifts that can transform our world? In this episode Amisha talks to Christina Tobin, an activist and leader in the election reform and voters' rights movements. She is the founder and chair of the Free & Equal Elections Foundation, a non-profit leading national, state and local efforts to open the electoral process in the United States by hosting open all-inclusive gubernatorial, Presidential and senatorial debates. Free & Equal organises Electoral Reform Symposium and produces ‘United We Stand' tours uniting the younger generations with musicians, artists, and thought leaders to promote political and cultural change whilst supporting individuals running for office. The organisation is creating a blockchain election assistant app to promote transparency and empower voters with information about their candidate choices. Christina gives us insight into the US electoral system and the work Free & Equal are doing to catalyse its reform through a truly independent decentralised platform of cultural interventions, Presidential debate and blockchain & AI technology. She shares her personal journey into the political sphere and her sense of purpose that guides her to stand with her truths and brave ideas to bring alive a bigger vision for humanity. They speak about the power of communities; how building connection within kindles hope and forges change from the bottom up. Christina believes a solution focused approach and the power of collaboration mobilises our local communities igniting integrity, unity, love and peace; ultimately growing a movement that will see us fly high in revolutionary skies. We learn that persistently doing what we love, trusting that whatever we achieve in our lifetime continues to grow beyond, and being present with our loved ones and people surrounding us is part of the alchemy of astronomical levels of change.

Future Generations Podcast with Dr. Stanton Hom
Many concerns need to be tackled as we deal with the aftermath of the pandemic, including the state of our society and country. The Democratic Party has deviated from American values and has become the party of big pharma and censorship. In recent memory, America has never been more divided. Today, we are fortunate to have our special guest Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an American environmental lawyer, and 2024 Democratic Party Presidential Candidate. He uses his voice to inform the American people of the country's failings, and to reunite the nation back to its' foundational values. Please take a moment to listen to this episode as he discusses his plans as president, and the need to stop censorship and corruption in the government. Don't miss this episode! Quotes: “The government shouldn't practice censorship. It is a First Amendment violation. And I'll create an executive order that prohibits all government departments from influencing public opinion or suppressing the American people by sending a memo on the first day of my administration.” - Robert F. Kennedy Jr. “When Pfizer gives you a million dollars, they're not doing it out of philanthropic impulses. They're doing it because they expect to get something in return.” - Robert F. Kennedy Jr. “In a world where rewarding the rich and punishing the poor, this nation has evolved into a form of cushy socialism for wealthy people in this cruel, ruthless capitalism for the country's middle class and poor. And that needs to end.” - Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Key Takeaways: When government officials order private entities to silence dissenting voices, they are in violation of the First Amendment because the government is engaging in censorship. They're not allowed to do that, which shouldn't be tolerated in the government. Big companies give money to the government not because they have any altruistic motives but because they want to purchase access, and they want to purchase action from the government that is often detrimental to the public interest. That's why it's important to keep corporate money out of the government. Wealthier people have more societal comfort and privileges than the middle class and the poor. They become entitled, believing they are superior to everyone else. But it must stop now because everyone deserves to be treated well, including those who are middle-class and poor. Highlights/Timeline: [05:35] Background of Robert's inspiration and what catalyzed him into a presidential candidacy [11:31] How does Robert aim to tackle censorship? [16:13] How Robert reclaims the public's trust in the government [38:32] Bobby's story of how he became interested in the environment [49:05] Bobby's first public live event in San Diego [51:00] Making a healthy generation of American Children Conclusion: As a nation, we must ensure that these large aggregations of power are not damaging our nation, our democracy, and the free flow of information. Despite being the richest nation in the world, the United States also has many people suffering from chronic diseases. No country in the world spends more on healthcare than we do, and yet we have the second largest population with the lowest health outcomes. This is unacceptable - we need to do better. America has never been more divided. The fundamental issue is how polarized both sides have become. A divided society cannot fend off exploitation or totalitarian takeover. The traditional American can-do spirit wears down in these never-ending battles. So let's bridge the gap and unite American citizens. Future Generations is proud to host a historic event for the city of San Diego during Memorial Day Weekend. Be a part of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s first public event since announcing his candidacy for President of the United States. The event will take place on Monday, May 29 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM, at Humphrey's By The Bay on Shelter Island.

The New Yorker: Politics and More
This week, Representative George Santos, the New York Republican, was indicted on thirteen counts of alleged financial crimes, including wire fraud, money laundering, theft of public funds, and making materially false statements to the House of Representatives. The congressman then took a page out of former President Donald Trump's playbook by calling the prosecution a “witch hunt.” Trump himself was found liable this week for defamation and sexual abuse, in a Manhattan civil trial brought by the writer E. Jean Carroll; Trump was ordered to pay her five million dollars in damages. Amid those developments, the relationship between the billionaire Republican donor Harlan Crow and the Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas continues to spark ethics concerns, following revelations about financial and real-estate transactions involving the two men. Despite the scandals, Santos, Thomas, and Trump maintain their respective positions of power as lawmaker, Justice, and Republican front-runner in the 2024 Presidential race. The New Yorker staff writers Susan B. Glasser, Jane Mayer, and Evan Osnos look at changes in American political culture that allow leaders to survive scandals that would have ended earlier careers, and whether shamelessness is the dominant driving our politics.

Truth is overrated. Since people don't really care for truth, the media helpfully curates the news to only show us what we want to see. Illegal immigration is down 90%, President Biden is so focused on his job that he, unfortunately, can't participate in debates, and interviews with 2024 Presidential candidates are scrubbed to only show the good bits.
