During his first month in Congress, Republican Representative George Santos from New York has been a giant distraction for the new House leadership. He was caught lying about parts of his job experience, education and even his heritage. He's now facing multiple state and federal investigations into his personal and campaign finances. Members from both parties and the majority of his constituents want him to resign. And he announced this week he's temporarily declining his committee assignments. Santos said it was voluntary, and he was stepping down to clear his name and focus on serving his constituents. But what does all the attention on one member tell us about the direction of the new Congress? The House also voted to remove Representative Ilhan Omar from the foreign relations committee. However, a small group of Republicans want to end the partisan war over committee assignments. Do they want to focus on real business? Host David Greene discusses with Mo Elleithee, executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, and Sarah Isgur, senior editor at The Dispatch. Plus, the Republican field for the presidential nomination in 2024 has been relatively quiet. Former President Donald Trump is trying to regain momentum. And there has long been speculation that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former Vice President Mike Pence will run as well. But now, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley says she'll announce her candidacy this month. Will this turn out to be a contest of personalities? And how do these people represent different visions for GOP leadership? And the pandemic permanently altered the American workplace. How can downtowns and office managers adjust to a new reality? And what would incentivize people to come back?

Monterey Park, Half Moon Bay, and Oakland, California are all reeling from mass shootings in their communities this past week that left at least 19 people dead. In Monterey Park, a city east of downtown Los Angeles, the shooter opened fire in a dance hall during Lunar New Year celebrations. The next day's festival, which was set to draw thousands of people, was canceled. Special guest Elise Hu, journalist and host for NPR, was supposed to take her three young daughters to perform at the next day's Lunar New Year festival. She shares her experience trying to make sense of the violence and looking for hope amid tragedy. And with more mass shootings comes the wave of politicians and policymakers demanding gun reform. President Biden is renewing his call for an assault weapons ban, though House Speaker Kevin McCarthy of Bakersfield says he won't commit to considering any new legislation. Would stricter gun laws make a difference? And is there a compromise both sides could be content with? Host David Greene discusses with Mo Elleithee, executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, and Sarah Isgur, senior editor at The Dispatch. Plus, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is standing by his state's decision to reject an Advanced Placement course in African American studies last week. He said the course lacks educational value and is too political due to its discussion of queer studies, reparations, and abolishing prisons. This is the first time a state has rejected an AP course, which is a class that allows high school students to potentially gain college credit. What's behind this decision and how can policymakers move forward? And special guest Sergio Peçanha, columnist at the Washington Post, discusses his recent article, “Hug an election denier,” and how we can embrace those we love despite disagreeing with them.
The California Southern Baptist Convention (CSBC) is asking fellow Southern Baptists to join them in Anaheim and consider taking the next step. A May 6 gas explosion devastated the historic Saratoga Hotel in Old Havana, Cuba, and also rained destruction on nearby Calvary Baptist Church. Remember the words of Isaiah 55:9: God's ways and thoughts are higher than ours.
January 20th was the official halfway mark of the Biden Administration's first term. That might seem like a an odd time to discuss Presidential transitions, but with the justice department still prosecuting participants in the January 6th insurrection it's never too soon to ask ourselves what lay ahead for 2024. Our guest in this episode, David Marchick is Dean of the Kogod School of Business at American University, but until recently he was director of the Partnership for Public Service's Center for Presidential Transition and the host of its Transition Lab podcast. He is also the co-author of a fascinating new book The Peaceful Transfer of Power: An Oral History of America's Presidential Transitions (UVA Press, 2022). Whether it was the worst transition in our nation's history—Buchanan to Abraham Lincoln or arguably the smoothest—The Bush 43 to Obama administrations—Marchick breaks down the good, the bad, and the ugly of Presidential transitions. This episode was edited by Gary Fletcher.
Both federal and civil organizations are challenged with coming up with creative ways to keep and attract a modern workforce. During this discussion, federal leaders share innovations on retaining their workforce and replacing retiring employees. Paul Pietsch, Partnership for Public Service brings up some shocking statistics. In one agency, the Gen-Z makes up only 1.6% of the workforce and, in the next two years, 33% of the federal workforce in that agency will hit retirement age. This second figure is sometimes referred to as the retirement tsunami. The experts on the panel all admit that they are presented with a challenge of retaining the younger workforce, and, at the same time, reaching out to new candidates. The only way to reach this goal is with forward thinking approaches. When it comes to keeping Gen X and Gen Z on board, the federal leaders discussed topics like rotating assignments, appealing to public service, assisting with student loans, including retention bonuses, flexible scheduling, and mentoring. Post COVID, all agencies understand the attraction of remote working and having a flexible schedule. One creative idea that is used at the Department of Education is rotating assignments. A manager can offer an inducement for a person to stay with the agency by offering them the ability to learn new skill sets in other areas. Another innovation suggested by Jacqueline Clay, Department of Education, is to form cohorts of people when they get hired. You can select them for specialized training. Because they will get to know one another, they can share knowledge in an informal manner. Mentorship programs have been started in some agencies, normally they last one year. In a twist, some are experimenting with reverse mentorship: where a younger person can share knowledge of topics like Slack with professionals who may have expertise in other areas. Some agencies offer financial incentives to keep team members and will compensate for a referral that results in a hire. Today's young people can have college debt, some studies show the average student debt is $18K. Some agencies are offering up to $60K in student loan forgiveness. If your target employees are participating in social media, then a wise leader should know how to communicate in that media. Joseph Abbott, from the USDA, remarked they created a new vocabulary where agency concepts could be understood in a world of emojis and memes.

The Biden administration and House Republicans are already in a potentially months-long standoff over raising the national debt ceiling. The Treasury Department started to enact “extraordinary measures” this week in order to keep paying the federal government's bills after hitting the debt ceiling, or the borrowing cap set by law, at $31.4 trillion. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen must now suspend some investments and exchange other types of debt to keep the cash flowing, but she predicts that can only last until June. Congress must now raise or suspend the debt ceiling so the government can keep the cash flowing. Failing to act could push the country into default could destabilize financial markets and push the world into economic chaos. Historically, raising the debt ceiling has been an easy vote for legislators. But it's become a political game of chicken in recent years. Republicans want to slash spending for entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare, but the Biden administration has made clear it wants the limit to be raised without conditions. What's really behind the hard stances from both parties? And given the clear divisions in the Republican party, are negotiations a good strategy? Host David Greene discusses with Mo Elleithee, executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, and Sarah Isgur, senior editor at The Dispatch. Plus, Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar were once again granted seats on House committees after being kicked off in 2021 by a Democratic-led Congress. They will both join the House Oversight and Accountability Committee and have already announced their intention to investigate President Biden over a number of issues. What does this tell us about how the GOP plans to use its slim House majority? And what will this mean for Democrats? And Israel is moving toward a dangerous path away from democracy with Benjamin Netanyahu's reinstatement as prime minister. While Democratic lawmakers are criticizing Israel, President Biden is now weighing how to respond. What could the Biden administration do, as it navigates debates in their own party? And is now the time for Biden to take a stance?

Brazil experienced what looked eerily similar to the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Rioters protested outside Brazil's congress and stormed government buildings, bolstered by the false claim their recent election was stolen. The rally was organized online by far-right groups who supported former President Jair Bolsonaro. Similar to January 6, the disinformation campaign was brewing for months, but security still wasn't able to prevent the surge. However, there were key differences to what happened in the U.S. Unlike former President Trump, Bolsonaro allowed for a peaceful transfer of power. Are far-right attacks on the government becoming more frequent? What does this tell us about the global state of politics? Host David Greene discusses with Mo Elleithee, executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, on the left; and Sarah Isgur, staff writer at The Dispatch, on the right. Plus, President Biden made his first visit to the southern border in El Paso. This came as his administration announced plans to crack down on asylum seekers from Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Haiti, which politicians on both sides of the aisle have criticized. Special guest Lauren Villagran, reporter from The El Paso Times, weighs in on the mood near the border as the number of migrants and asylum seekers continues to rise. Is there hope that compromise around immigration policy is coming? And Biden's aides found multiple sets of classified documents stored in his former offices from when he was vice president under former President Obama. But Republicans have been quick to accuse Democrats of hypocrisy for their criticism of Trump holding onto private government documents at Mar-A-Lago. Could Biden be in legal trouble? And how will the Justice Department handle each of these investigations?

In this inaugural 2023 episode, Loren and Robert talked about what the last Congress accomplished and what to expect in the next couple of years ahead.
Despite our fascination with presidents and their administrations, historically little attention was paid to the transition process -- what happens between election night and Inauguration Day. The delays witnessed after the 2020 election brought to light the need for an effective, streamlined, and productive presidential transition process. But just what does that entail?Join me this week as I chat with David Marchick about his book, The Peaceful Transfer of Power: An Oral History of America's Presidential Transitions. We not only discuss book, but also the important work that happens behind the scenes to prepare a president for day one, and why smooth presidential transitions are so critical. David is the host of the podcast Transition Lab and former Director of the Partnership for Public Service's Center for Presidential Transition. He currently serves as the Dean of American University's Kogood School of Business. Support the show

It's a new year but the incoming Congress has not been able to start work yet. With a slim House majority, California Republican Kevin McCarthy has faced failed vote after failed vote to try and become speaker of the House without success. This is the first time a bid for speaker has failed multiple times in more than a century. How high are the stakes to elect a speaker? McCarthy is facing a rebellion from around 20 Republicans, many of whom are backed by former President Trump including Florida Representative Matt Gaetz and Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert. Is McCarthy conceding too much power to try and win over those 20 members? And how long will this dysfunction roadblock the Republican-controlled House? Meanwhile, President Biden and Senator Mitch McConnell came together to celebrate the building of a bridge between Kentucky and Ohio as part of last year's bipartisan infrastructure bill. Is this more political theater or are these longtime politicians trying to show younger colleagues how to work across the aisle? Host David Greene discusses with Mo Elleithee, executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, on the left; and Sarah Isgur, staff writer at The Dispatch, on the right. Plus, this week marked the two-year anniversary of the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol. What has changed (or not) since then? And sports fans and non sports fans alike were moved by Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamiln's near death experience during an NFL football game. Why was his injury so significant?

The history of patriarchal society on which much of American culture is built relies on a set of characteristics that bring masculinity and leadership together. To gain access to these higher rungs of hierarchy, women have to navigate, adjust and break the constraints of these concepts. As gender equality becomes more a priority for society, understanding and deconstructing these connections becomes is paramount In a series of papers, the nonprofit Partnership for Public Service has conducted research on women leadership in government. Emily Kalnicky is the Director of Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning at the Partnership for Public Service and has been working on this research. She joined the podcast to discuss women and leadership in public service roles. *** Partnership for Public Servic'e LeadHERShip series: https://ourpublicservice.org/read-watch-listen/reports/leadhership-in-the-federal-government/ *** Follow GovExec on Twitter! https://twitter.com/govexec

In a special show to end the year, Left, Right & Center recaps some of the most important political moments of 2022, and what it all means as we head into the new year. The midterm elections revealed the declining support for former President Donald Trump amid losses for many of the candidates he backed. Is there a growing part of the electorate that's craving less chaos? How are both parties responding to lessons learned? And the Democratic party found some success by donating money to Republican candidates they believed they could beat in the midterms. Is that a blueprint they'll turn to again? Or is that bad for democracy? Plus, it's been more than 300 days since Russia officially invaded Ukraine. How consequential is this war on Ukraine? What's at stake globally? And could the Ukrainians grab the upper hand next year? Host David Greene discusses with Mo Elleithee, executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, on the left; and Sarah Isgur, staff writer at The Dispatch, on the right. Plus, the panelists share their New Year's resolutions.

In 2010 he learned from a home-buying program in Highland Park that HP needs much more love. Since a deal in bad faith to buy a home, Khursheed has been driven to provide justice to HP residents that have been wronged. Today he is a city council elect candidate and is fighting more valiantly for citizens. This is an informative and spirited discussion about rights, wrongs, and the will of the people.

The controversial policy to turn away asylum seekers from crossing the country's southern border, Title 42, is getting another life. At least for now. First invoked during the Trump administration in March 2020, Title 42 is a portion of the U.S. Public Health code that allows immigration officials to stop asylum seekers from entering America in the name of public health. The policy was set to end on Wednesday after a federal judge said in November the rule was unlawful. But Republican attorneys general from 19 states argued the Center for Disease Control didn't follow the proper procedure to end the policy last April. The Biden administration continued to use the policy with some changes, though the president has tried to end the policy this year. U.S. Customs and Border Protection estimates Title 42 allowed officials to turn away more than 2.4 million migrants, many of whom would have had the right to apply for asylum under normal circumstances. Now, the Biden administration is furiously trying to finalize its plan for when the policy is likely struck down as tens of thousands of migrants have arrived near the southern border. How can Biden reform the troubled immigration system? And what kind of system reimagining could both parties get behind? Host David Greene discusses with Mo Elleithee, executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, on the left; and Sarah Isgur, staff writer at The Dispatch, on the right. Plus, special guest Evelyn Farkas, executive director at the McCain Institute and former deputy assistant secretary of defense, weighs in on Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky's powerful speech to Congress this week. Is support for Ukraine in its war against Russia investing in a better world for all? And will America's financial support be enough for Ukraine to get the upper hand? Plus, Elon Musk is back in the news for suspending more than half a dozen journalists' Twitter accounts, bringing into question his support of free speech. How do you balance free speech with public safety?

Zanda Kalnina-Lukasevica is the Latvian Parliament's Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. But long before Zanda started her career in public service, she grew up in Latvia during a transitional period in the country's history. Latvia was evolving – moving away from Soviet rule and toward self-governance. After finishing college preparatory courses, she studied social work at university and then started a career in public service. At first, she worked at the local level, serving on the city council of her hometown. But after realizing she could help more people at the national level, Zanda applied for a federal position and was appointed to the Strategic Analysis Commission of the Chancery of the President of Latvia. While moving up in her career, she prioritized furthering her education and earned her Ph.D. in Management Science in 2013. Despite having a small population of less than two million, Latvia has strong cultural traditions that its citizens share with the world – music, and singing being chief among them. Latvia is working toward equal gender representation in its institutions, like academia. Zanda shares that around 50% of Latvian college graduates are women, but the ratio of male to female university professors is not equal. Zanda understands firsthand the value of having women in the room when decisions are made. She represents Latvia on the EU Council, which comprises 27 countries. When impactful policy and peace negotiations are on the agenda, the participation of female politicians adds balance and fosters new perspectives. Zanda Kalnina-Lukasevica is motivated by improving herself and helping others. Her career and educational achievements demonstrate tenacity and service. So, what is Zanda's advice to women who want to further their careers and maximize their impact? Focus on education, be courageous in pursuing new opportunities, and build your network from the people around you.

In yet another alteration to the new balance of power in the Senate, Arizona's Krysten Sinema announced she is leaving the Democratic Party and is now an Independent. Sinema claims this move will help her represent her constituents. But her approval ratings among Democrats in Arizona have been dropping for months because many voters feel she betrayed them for her own interests. She's vulnerable to a primary challenge in two years if she runs. Was going Independent her only option? This change is unlikely to affect the Democrats' control of the chamber. But this forces the party to decide if they will back Sinema's reelection campaign in 2024 or if they'll throw their support behind a real Democrat. Would the party risk splitting votes? How could Republicans use this to their advantage? Sinema's announcement also demonstrates how much easier it is now for individual politicians to go against their party or their agenda. What does the democratization of politics mean for the future of both parties? Are the Democrats and Republicans getting weaker? Plus, German intelligence intercepted a scheme by an extreme right wing group to overthrow the government. The plot had ties to conspiracy theories and right wing doctrine that is proliferating in the U.S. What did this plot have in common with the January 6th insurrection in the U.S.? What's the connection between ultra-right-wing politicians and political violence? And what does “far right” or “far left” even mean? Host David Greene discusses with Mo Elleithee, executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, on the left; and Sarah Isgur, staff writer at The Dispatch, on the right. They weigh in on how social media and recent media layoffs are making news less reliable and misinformation more prominent.

After the recent win by Raphael Warnock in Georgia, Democrats will hang onto control of the Senate by a slightly larger margin. Warnock beat Republican Hershel Walker in Georgia's runoff with a 51% to 49% lead…giving Democrats a 51-49 edge in the Senate. Though Democrats had already secured the Senate majority, this race may have bolstered the narrative that former President Donald Trump is losing influence on the right. Walker was yet another one of Trump's hand-picked candidates to be defeated. But what actually decided the race? Was it candidate quality? And will Trump really be stripped of his sway in the Republican party? Plus, a significant percentage of Georgia voters split their ticket by voting for Republican Brian Kemp for governor but Warnock for Senate. Is Georgia truly turning purple, or was this race too close to make that assumption? Host David Greene discusses with Mo Elleithee, executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, on the left; and Sarah Isgur, staff writer at The Dispatch, on the right. And, special guest Stephen Fowler, political reporter for Georgia Public Broadcast, weighs in on how the messaging from each side played with Georgian voters. Meanwhile, both Republicans and Democrats are doing some soul searching with the midterms officially over. What lessons are both sides taking away from this runoff? And how are they preparing for 2024? Also, the Democratic National Convention (DNC) is trying to change which states cast their ballots first in a presidential primary election. Iowa is out, and the DNC is looking to move South Carolina to the first slot. Will this actually prioritize Black voters, as committee member Donna Brazile proclaimed. Or does this calendar give President Joe Biden and Democrats an advantage? And Brittney Griner is free. The WBNA star was convicted for carrying cannabis cartridges in her luggage and held in a Russian penal colony for most of the year. Now, she will return home in exchange for the U.S. releasing convicted Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, nicknamed the Merchant of Death. Was this prisoner swap worth the risk for the Biden administration? And what can Americans read into this?
