RUSH: Paula in Hartland, Wisconsin, I'm glad you waited. Welcome to the Rush Limbaugh program. CALLER: Rush, so cool to talk to you. Anyway, I'm gonna get right to my point like I was instructed. Rush, I had a thought doing some reading this morning. I understand that Harry Reid and some Democratic senators are gonna try to push through some changes in the filibuster rules. And as I got thinking about it, I said, ‘Man, I hope I can get Rush today because I need his input on this,' and I'm thinking, ‘Well, the House is now Republican so it's really not gonna matter as far as legislation goes,' but I'm thinking, ‘The Senate does all the judicial and federal nominations, approves them,' and I'm thinking that since Obama's agenda is really going nowhere legislatively, that the Democrats are looking at this as a way to load the courts with as radical judges as they can to try to keep their agenda moving forward. RUSH: Well, now — CALLER: What do you think? RUSH: — you know, you are incredibly shrewd, and I mean this. You are incredibly shrewd. I just want to bring one small correction. Their desire to get rid of the filibuster in the Senate goes beyond judicial nominations. They really want to get rid of it. They've lost and the filibuster is now an obstacle. So of course, ‘It's outdated, it's outmoded, it's a fetish, and we have to get rid of it. We've gotta get rid of this requirement that says we have to have 60 votes to get anything done. That's just antiquated.' It held them back. So they're serious about it in terms of legislation. But the way this breaks down legally is quite fascinating, and a lot of people are calling Republicans hypocrites for opposing the change in filibuster rule, and the reason… https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2011/01/05/senate_dems_target_filibuster_rule/ Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

2675 - The Secret History of the War on Terror w/ Craig Whitlock

The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Sam and Emma host Craig Whitlock, investigative reporter at the Washington Post, to discuss his recent book The Afghanistan Papers: A Secret History of the War. Sam and Emma first touch upon the resounding victory for Gavin Newsom in the California recall election from last night, and discuss Newsom's nationalizing of the recall/pinning the results to the "shadow president" for the Republicans (Trump) as a telegraph of the political strategy going forward into 2022. Then Emma and Sam are joined by Craig, who starts out by discussing how him and the Washington Post obtained the Afghanistan Papers, the trove of documents the Post obtained via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that serve as the basis for the book, and how the book timed up perfectly with Biden's announcement of the withdrawal of troops in August, as well as the context behind the "Lessons Learned" project run through a little known federal agency called the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) that was the source of the lion's share of the notes and transcripts that comprised the papers. Craig goes deeper into describing the testimony from the interview transcripts of "Lessons Learned", citing how many past, present, and current military officials considered the war in Afghanistan "much worse than you think", and that "we didn't know what we were doing" in terms of strategic goals in Afghanistan. Craig goes so far as to report that former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld had no appreciable strategy for the war in Afghanistan beyond "chasing terrorists". Sam and Emma dive deeper into the idea that these transcripts and notes were intentionally hidden by the Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations, noting that the SIGAR reports that were publicly disclosed were significantly edited and sanitized. Craig then goes back to the early 2000's, stating that there was a pretty clear game plan for the first 60 days of the war, but that there was no recognizable strategy or timetable for what the United States was doing occupying Afghanistan, especially when George W. Bush made it clear that this was not a "nation-building" project to begin with. The emphasis was also very clearly on Iraq over Afghanistan, to the point where Rumsfeld asked Bush to meet with the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan as well as the commander in Iraq. Bush only wanted to meet with the Iraq commander, and didn't even know who the Afghanistan commander was, and didn't want to meet with him anyways. Craig then pivots to the Obama years, where the Administration very clearly wanted to continue the war without calling it a war, so as to not step on the toes of their allies whose presence in Afghanistan would violate some of their own war-making laws and practices if it was called a war by their allies. Not wanting to call it a war, but not being accurate enough to call it a "peacekeeping mission", the Obama administration landed on the clunky "non-conventional war effort" to split the difference. Afterwards, Craig discloses the combustible report that the Bush Administration furiously attempted to cover up, that former Vice President Dick Cheney was almost killed in a suicide bombing at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, and how this pattern of attempting to spin every negative outcome into a positive one throughout the war persisted across every presidential administration in the 21st century. They end on the warped and strange arc of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's career, how he was a widely respected military official until his full throated embrace of Trump and QAnon stifled that perception, as well as Craig hoping that previous, current, and future administrations will learn from the mistakes of the past 20 years, but doesn't have too much hope because, well, Bush and Rumsfeld didn't learn from the mistakes of Vietnam outlined in, you guessed it, another trove of documents that made clear how badly we were losing a protracted war: The Pentagon Papers. In the Fun Half, Sam gives a brief primer on the fight over taxation between the House and the Senate Dems in the reconciliation mockups going around the Hill, the crew checks in on the House and Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearings where in the House Ilhan Omar grills Secretary of State Blinken over the drone strike that may have killed a foreign aid worker instead of an ISIS-K operative, and in the Senate Idaho Senator Jim Risch gets to more pressing matters, namely: who the heck is pressing the button that controls when Biden talks? Then the crew check in on Ben Shapiro melting down over Cara Delevingne's "Peg the Patriarchy" look at the Met Gala, to which Ben feels the great need to describe what pegging means to him. And FINALLY the crew has the honor of dissecting Tucker Carlson's fascination with Nicki Minaj's cousin's friend's balls after his COVID vaccination (Tucker corrected the record to reflect it was Nicki's cousin's friend, not cousin), Tucker's quest to get him on the show, and we get a real time dispatch from the Trinidad and Tobago Health Minister over whether this dude's balls actually swelled post-vax.

Last podcast, we discussed expanding and improving Medicare, and since then there are a couple of major updates on the budget moving through Congress, with implications for the M4A movement! We also discuss the history of expanding and improving Medicare (or degrading, in the case of privatization). Show Notes Last podcast, we discussed expanding and improving Medicare - way back 2 weeks ago - it was really an uphill fight, with the Biden administration focused only on expanded subsidies for the ACA. Thanks to a lot of grassroots pressure, it's a whole new world now since even just two weeks ago. Ben and Stephanie update us on how the ground has really shifted, and share a couple of MAJOR updates on the budget moving through Congress, with implications for the M4A movement.  Another thing we started thinking about since the last podcast is - when WAS the last major expansion of Medicare? How would these reforms fit in the history of expanding Medicare since it was passed in 1965? We did a little research on that, learned a lot of interesting things, and so we'll also quickly take a tour of Medicare through the years and try to figure out where this moment is in all that historical context.   The first major development is on the House side: the House Appropriations Committee for the first time in 45 years passed a budget WITHOUT the Hyde Amendment included. It's unlikely to make it through the Senate, but we are getting closer and closer to eliminating the ban on public funding of abortion services. https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2021/7/16/2040229/-House-Democrats-advance-spending-bill-to-overturn-the-Hyde-Amendment The second major development is on the Senate side: Senate Dems & Biden have agreed to a $3.5 trillion number for the budget, not as much as Senator Sanders had wanted. But Chuck Schumer publicly announced that he will push to include dental, vision, and hearing in traditional Medicare - he's crediting Bernie Sanders and the M4A movement with the proposal. This wasn't even on the table a couple of weeks ago. https://www.commondreams.org/news/2021/06/21/schumer-backs-sanders-proposal-include-dental-hearing-and-vision-care-medicare We don't know the details of how extensive the dental, hearing and vision benefits will be, so we need to keep pushing to make sure the benefits are generous enough to undercut the privatized Medicare Advantage plans. The better the benefits, the fewer reasons there are to buy a private plan, putting more folks in the public pool, increasing efficiencies and lowering costs for patients. The other thing very likely to be included in the budget is SOME FORM of Medicare negotiation of prescription drugs, but there is a fight shaping up within the Democratic caucus in the Senate about whether Medicare will be given real power to negotiate drug prices. HOW MANY drugs will Medicare be allowed to negotiate prices for? How will Medicare set prices for those drugs - particularly whether Medicare can use what's called “international reference pricing”? The political barriers to Medicare drug negotiations are actually NOT primarily the centrist Democrats who you've been hearing so much about during this budget process - Joe Manchin (WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ). The real dangers are the Senators who we in the M4A movement call the "Pharma darlings": primarily Bob Menendez (NJ), but we're also worried about Tom Carper (DE), and Catherine Cortez Masto (NV). We really need activists in those three states to step up their pressure. (Sidenote to some M4A activists: instead of blasting champions like Rep. Cori Bush and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive women of color, could you focus on the Pharma darlings instead?) The third proposal we've been advocating for is lowering the eligibility age for Medicare to 60, which we thought would be the hardest provision to win. But there is still a real chance to win within this budget,
