Donald Trump’s Deliberate Courting of Extremist Voters October 16, 2020
1 hr 11 min

The foiled plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer may be just the tip of the iceberg. Under the Trump presidency, right wing extremist groups have multiplied significantly and pose a grave domestic terror threat to the United States. In addition, through his own divisive rhetoric and coded language, the President has tolerated and encouraged the rise of violent, Pro Trump vigilante groups. Are these armed, right wing radicals, the foot soldiers for Trump’s new Maga Army? Plus, a conversation with Lincoln Project’s Jeff Timmer. The former Michigan GOP honcho and veteran campaign operative provides insight into how the kidnap plot is playing at a local level and discusses Trump’s party takeover and how the Republican Party might repair and redeem itself.

How the Recent Supreme Court 5-4 Decision in the NY/Religion Case Proves the Need to Add Justices
The recent *Supreme Court* decision, in which the court struck down New York's attempt to limit the size of *religious gatherings* *for public safety reasons*, provides a clear and compelling example of why we must increase the number of Supreme Court justices. We should not be locked in the perpetual battle of decisions that are decided by one justice. When we do that, we are letting one non-elected individual appointed by a partisan president set constitutional policy for 330,000,000 Americans. That is as dangerous as it is foolish. There is *NOTHING i*n the Constitution requiring nine Supreme Court justice. *During our nation's history we have had as few as five and as many as ten justices on the Supreme Court.* The time has come when we should no longer let just one swing justice - not Amy Coney Barrett, not the late Ruth Bader Ginsberg, not any other justice - decide what the Constitution means for 330,000,000 Americans. Here is what should be done to fix a problem we're been enduring for far too long.      *Please consider becoming a #TeamJustice patron at:  https://www.patreon.com/glennkirschner * *My podcast, "Justice Matters with Glenn Kirschner" can be downloaded where you get your podcasts*.

The Safest Ways to Celebrate Thanksgiving, According to Science
How are your Thanksgiving plans different this year? You may have heeded the urgent advice to put travel plans on ice, but you’re still trying your best to feel the holiday spirit, somehow? As the latest coronavirus surge continues unabated, and as various kinds of restrictions swing into effect across the country, the Mother Jones Podcast team is bringing you two chats with top infectious-disease experts on how to stop the spread and keep you and your family safe during a holiday season unlike any other. Science communication expert Jessica Malaty Rivera, a microbiologist, has a few tips for you, and a couple for the incoming president, too. Rivera spoke to our senior editor Kiera Butler about Thanksgiving strategies—"a negative COVID-19 test is not an immunity passport," she warns—as well as her work to document up-to-the-minute coronavirus data and trends at the COVID Tracking Project. "Nobody here is saying we should cancel Thanksgiving," Rivera says. "What we’re saying is it needs to look very different from years past." Some top-line tips: Stay at home, and if you are hosting a gatherings, keep it small, outdoors, and masked. Read more from Mother Jones' interview with Rivera, and how the Biden administration must beat viral misinformation influencers at their own game to combat the coronavirus, here. Also on the show, host Jamilah King spoke to Dr. Peter Hotez, a vaccine scientist, pediatrician, and dean for the National School of Tropical Medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, about the state of vaccine development right now, including which segments of the population are expected to get it first, and when. He gives his Thanksgiving tips, too: "We are in a public health crisis," he says. "Don’t do reckless, irresponsible things. Let’s just hang on a few more months and everyone can get vaccinated and live."

Ep. 141: Make America California Again! (w/ Rep. Ro Khanna)
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. GEORGIA Special Election Is On January 5th!
