Ep. 141: Make America California Again! (w/ Rep. Ro Khanna)
Play • 1 hr 25 min

If Democrats are able to win the two Senate races in Georgia on January 5th, they will have control over the Presidency, the House and the Senate after Joe Biden is sworn in on January 20th. What can America accomplish with unified Democratic control of the Executive and Legislative branches in Washington? To get a picture of what that can look like, America can look to California for inspiration.

California congressman Ro Khanna joins Michael to first explain what progressive, positive change has become reality in California due to Democrats controlling all levers of power in the state for the past several years. Then, they discuss what Democrats can get done in Washington if Democrats are able to take control of the Senate after the special elections in Georgia.

BONUS: Universal Enemy — Scholar Daryl Li on the Relationship Between Transnational Jihadists and U.S. Empire
In this special bonus episode of Intercepted, we take an in-depth look at one of the most consequential eras of modern history, the late 1980s and early 1990s. The Berlin Wall fell in 1989, as the Soviet Union crumbled. The Russian occupation of Afghanistan came to an end, thanks in no small part to the covert and overt involvement of the United States. Bill Clinton brought an end to 12 years of Republican rule, defeating the former CIA director George HW Bush. And with Clinton’s two terms in office came a new spin on US militarism across the world, the notion of liberal so-called humanitarian intervention. The propaganda pitch was that the United States would use its military force as a sort of global police officer whose violent actions were wrapped in the justification that US missiles and bombs and troop deployments were serving a greater good. Nowhere was this more boldly asserted than in the wars in Yugoslavia, which stretched from the early 1990s all the way through 2008 when the US officially recognized the independence of the Serbian province of Kosovo. The years that ushered in the declaration of the end of the Cold War would have a significant impact on global relations and warmaking to this day. University of Chicago scholar Daryl Li has written a meticulously documented book that seeks to understand the trends that emerged from this era, with a focus on putting into context the movement of foreign fighters from country to country. The book is called “The Universal Enemy: Jihad, Empire, and the Challenge of Solidarity.” Li highlights the parallels between transnational jihadists, UN peacekeeping missions and socialist non-alignment and he examines the relationship between jihad and US empire.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
