Trump, QAnon, and Ron

Happy 4th of July! Donald Trump spent Independence Day posting QAnon memes and amplifying extremist groups on his social media platform. Meanwhile, the Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) set to merge with Donald Trump’s social media company just reached a settlement agreement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as a Justice Department investigation into the deal remains ongoing. Cold water is thrown on Ron DeSantis’ campaign as betting markets give California Governor Gavin Newsom, who isn’t even running, better odds at winning the 2024 election. How did DeSantis go from the right’s ‘normal’ alternative to Trump to an even more fringe candidate? We’ll discuss. Finally, we’ll recap the Supreme Court decisions from late last week and try to make sense of how a hypothetical case surrounding a fake gay couple led to a ruling with massive implications.

Democrats notched some critical victories in last night’s elections, while Desantis had a very bad night. We’ll dive into the returns.

How did a purple state yield a Republican supermajority – and what will this all mean for the women of North Carolina? We’ll then turn to the debt limit fight. Biden and members of congress are set to meet today. How close are they to compromise? And if they can’t, can Biden just ignore the debt ceiling? Some legal scholars say yes. Then: As we predicated, CNN totally screwed up their Trump town hall. We’ll size up the arguments for and against their decision to “platform” Trump — and give you our take.

Trump’s Waco Speech and a Tragedy in Nashville

Yet another school shooting has led Biden to once again call for gun safety measures. Meanwhile, the GOP leaders offer thoughts, prayers, and conspiracies. Trump went down to Waco to attack Alvin Bragg and conjure images of cult leader (and alleged pedophile) David Koresh. Is this the desperate last act of a cornered rat or should we be worried? Then, we turn to a new study that shows Americans are abandoning our defining values. What will that mean for our country, and our lives? And finally, we’ll check in with the folks over at Fox News to get the latest on how the Dominion lawsuit is sowing chaos in America’s favorite right-wing cable network.  Thanks to our sponsor Dave!

Tucker Goes Full Putin

Tucker Carlson goes full Putin. Never go full Putin. The Georgia state legislature is trying to pass legislation undermining District Attorney Fani Willis. Will they succeed in undermining the looming Trump indictment? Tennessee lawmakers ban drag shows. What can we do to fight back against such blatant bullying? Then, GOP states are pulling out of a critical interstate voting consortium. That may seem boring, but this could have massive implications for future elections. Finally, we’ll talk about a few lowlights from the CPAC conference, including a DailyWire host who called for transgenderism to be eradicated.

The GOP’s New Benghazi

The FBI and Department of Energy now believe COVID was the result of a lab leak in China. Republicans are now running with this, claiming a liberal media conspiracy and cover-up. Are they right? We’ll talk about what we know, who screwed up, and point out a few inconvenient facts for the GOP. Biden’s student loan relief has landed in front of the Supreme Court. What can we glean from oral arguments? Is the relief program in trouble? Oh, and of course we have some GOP on GOP infighting, once again checking in with the ongoing imbroglio between DeSantis and Trump.

Trump’s Looming Indictments

A seismic indictment in Georgia? The special grand jury foreperson is sharing snippets of information that make Trump and everyone in his orbit nervous. Then, internal Fox messages released in the $1.6 billion Dominion defamation case show the network’s hosts internally knew trump was lying despite continuing to spread those lies. Will Fox’s viewers finally realize the contempt the network has for them? Finally, President Joe Biden visited Ukrainian President Zelenskyy in Ukraine. It should be a reason for all Americans to come together and applaud the president — but of course the right couldn’t even do that.

Introducing Wonder Media Network's latest audio documentary, Teaching Texas. In 1961, Norma and Mel Gabler were a quiet couple living in Longview, Texas.

What We Can Do About Hate Crime

In 2014, there was a shooting outside the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas - a suburb of Kansas City. The gunman was a white supremacist and the former grand dragon of the Ku Klux Klan. He picked this location because he was sure he would find Jewish children preparing for a talent show. The gunman killed three people, none of whom were actually Jewish. Of the three people killed, two of them were related to Mindy Corporon. One was her 14 year-old son, Reit. The other was her father, a practicing physician, who took his grandson to the audition. Mindy was supposed to meet them there. When she arrived at the scene, her life changed forever. Since then, Mindy has been working to spread a message of peace and kindness that spans every religious background, but she’s also become more familiar with the rise of white supremacists. She’s trying to understand why people are doing this and to prevent others from following in their footsteps. For the season finale of Majority 54, here is my conversation with Mindy Corporon about turning the tide of White Nationalism.

What is the Role of Business in Social Progress?

One of the best parts of doing this podcast is getting to highlight friends of mine who are doing big things or have big ideas or both. Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick has a history of public service, and now he’s continuing it from the private sector. He’s a deeply thoughtful guy and he’s really made me think differently about what expectations we should put on the business community in America. I mean, yes, as progressives we think big business should pay its fair share of taxes and should treat workers fairly, but Deval doesn’t stop there - he’s saying there’s no reason companies can’t also seek to make the world a better place too. This is something I’ve been talking about a lot in here in Kansas City, because I want to make sure the progress in KC is felt by everyone - residents and employers alike. Here is my conversation with my friend Deval Patrick about reinvesting in America.

Behind The Scenes Of The Travel Ban: What Is Our Responsibility Now?

This episode is for everyone who has listened to this show, thought about the change they’d like to make in the world, and hesitated to take action because they either weren’t an expert or weren’t directly affected by the thing they wanted to change. We’ve been debating the Muslim ban since the 2016 campaign, and we’ve even done an episode of this show on Islamophobia, but today we wanted to tell you about the woman behind the legal fight for refugees. She’s not a long-time human rights attorney or a former refugee herself. In fact, when Becca Heller started the International Refugee Assistance Project, she wasn’t even a lawyer yet. Now that organization is helping people in over 70 countries. Becca is also one of the people who organized volunteer attorneys to assist refugees at airports when the Muslim ban first came down. The Muslim ban may not lead the news everyday, but the damage its doing continues, and here is my conversation with Becca about what can be done.

Why Redistricting is the Key to Saving our Democracy

Gerrymandering is the process of redrawing the districts and reviewing the power structure of voting in America, but often for less than bi-partisan means. Every ten years, the party in power works with recent census data to determine the "best" way for voters to be represented. The process is becoming a bitter power play, and the people who are fighting against it are finding incredible backing from other voters who are tired of watching their voice in our government get muted more with each passing election. Katie Fahey refused to accept this status quo, and so with a single Facebook post she wound up launching one of the biggest social forces fighting gerrymander-- all from her home in Michigan.

Engaging The Other Side on LGBTQ Rights

This is a show all about reaching across the aisle and engaging with people that you might think could never change their mind. So, it's a real pleasure to talk to someone who has flipped a seemingly impossible stance in a public figure. I absolutely want to ask them about how they pulled it off, and what we can learn from that and/or emulate in our own battles. Remember a few years ago when the owner of Chick-fil-A made some anti-gay remarks and it lead to a national boycott of the fast food chain? Well, did you ever wonder why you stopped hearing about that guy? CEO Dan Cathy experienced a personal shift in beliefs, and it wasn’t just about losing money. It was about a friendship he made with LGBTQ activist Shane Windmeyer. Here is my conversation with Shane Windmeyer about changing a mind by making a friend.

Why We Have To Raise The Minimum Wage​

Our guest today had never been a political person, mostly because he simply did not have time to. He works​ three jobs trying to support a family. And that ​is the issue: based on the minimum wage in America, he ​is ​still struggling to provide for his family.

Connecting Through Comedy / The Liberal Redneck

His name is Trae Crowder but you might know him under a different name: The Liberal Redneck. From his porch, Trae films videos on his phone where he goes on rants about social issues. You instantly feel he’s about to venture into very upsetting territory, and some of that comes from his mix of anger and a heavy southern accent. And then, when he hits his stride, The Liberal Redneck shifts into a position of openness, and general woke-ness, that turns your expectations on their head. Now, him and his co-comedians WellRED Comedy are touring the country, engaging with audiences of all types, and headed for an inevitable network TV show of their own. Here is my conversation with Trae Crowder about how we can use a few good jokes to offset the darkness.

How Do We Solve The Opioid Epidemic?

Phil Spagnuolo is a state representative in New Hampshire, and someone who has personally struggled with opioid addiction. Last year, he flipped the seat from red to blue for the very first time in the history of that state. During the campaign for the 2016 election, Trump came to New Hampshire and made a lot of claims about the opioid epidemic and his plans to solve it. As you might have guessed, there’s been no progress on this issue from the Trump administration. But there has been progress from Phil Spagnuolo. He’s a certified substance misuse recovery coach who founded his own clinic. Phil says he’s here today, alive on this earth, because of Medicaid. And now he’s in a position to defend Medicaid from the inside, so that it can help other people stay alive. Here is my conversation with State Representative Phil Spagnuolo about his own battle with addiction, what he’s learned, and what he’s trying to teach his colleagues.

Hacktivism

Today, we’re talking to one of the biggest names in the tech entrepreneur world. He experienced a total political shift the night of the 2016 election, while he watched in horror, as most of us did. Unlike most of us, he set about creating a means for change to prevent this from ever happening again. Eric Ries inadvertently became very influential in the Resistance against Donald Trump’s policies (and many of you probably have used a tool he invented without even knowing it).  We’re going to discuss how the online landscape has changed the political and the person forever, and what we can do in the face of it.

Welcome to Majority 54. We’re talking to the 54% of American​s​ who did not vote for Donald Trump about where we go from here. Senator Yvanna Cancela is a millennial union leader who thought she was headed for a much different destination. She listened to her calling and became the political director of Culinary Local 226, Nevada’s largest union. Now, Cancela has led protests, lobbied state lawmakers and played a pivotal role in turning Nevada blue last November when most of the nation wound up red.  We’re going to discuss how unions are perceived in America, both positively and negatively, and what the future of organized labor looks like.

He's a proponent of criminal justice reform. He's a self-proclaimed "Mexican biker lawyer covered in tattoos." He's a Dallas Cowboys fan. He's never prosecuted a single case. He's Mark Gonzalez, and he's our guest today.

If you’re new to Majority 54, I’m Jason Kander, the president of Let America Vote: an organization dedicated to making sure that every American gets to vote by creating political consequences for anyone who wants to diminish the most basic American right. And we're talking to the 54% of Americans who did not vote for Donald Trump about where we go from here. In the first episode of this second season, we talk to someone who has an incredible platform about how he uses it to do good. That man is someone that a couple of you may know: Mr. Lin-Manuel Miranda. The creator of In The Heights and Hamilton discusses making politics entertaining and engaging, as well as how to choose fundraising campaigns to maximum effect. Then, we ask when he's going to run for Secretary of Treasury, since he has more experience than the current Secretary of Treasury. This is just a killer interview and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it. There are only a few days left to support the campaign Lin-Manuel is running, which benefits Let America Vote among other worthwhile organizations.

Season One Finale: Taxes and Healthcare

Today we’re talking health care, taxes, and activism with Ady Barkan.  Like me, you probably first became aware of Ady when a video of him confronting Jeff Flake went viral.  But that wasn’t Ady’s first stab at activism – far from it in fact. A graduate of Columbia and of Yale Law, he could have done anything he wanted. He could have made a whole bunch of money right out of school, but instead, he started representing low-wage workers in New York City in pursuit of everything from paid sick days to the unionization of the car wash industry.  Today, Ady is a Director at the Center for Popular Democracy, where he runs Local Progress and the Fed Up campaign.  Eighteen months ago, at the age of 33, Ady and his wife Rachel welcomed a son, Carl, and shortly thereafter, Ady was diagnosed with ALS – a terminal illness that paralyzes its victims over time. In a very short period of time, he’s gone from being an active runner and hiker to being in a wheelchair, unable to pick up his son. It’s a cruel and inexplicably random affliction, and after talking to Ady, I found myself in awe of his resilience and thankful for the way he’s continued to dedicate his life to fighting for what’s right.  Important Links: @AdyBarkan http://populardemocracy.org/ @Majority54 @JasonKander hellomajority54@gmail.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Voting Rights

Today we’re talking Voting Rights. In my mind, there is no issue of greater importance in the country right now – and that’s because it affects every other issue. As you may know, I’ve put a good chunk of time into this cause. I spent four years fighting voter suppression as Secretary of State in Missouri and I’ve spent the last year fighting it as the President of Let America Vote, an organization I founded. It’s a broad issue because there are a lot of different pieces to it, so in the second segment of today’s show I’ll go a little deeper than usual. I’ll get into the recent history of voter suppression, the tactics of vote suppressors, and how we fight back – as well as doing what we usually do in segment two: I’ll tell you how to talk about it with friends who don’t yet agree with you. So segment 2 will tackle the issue as a whole, but for today’s conversation with a guest, I wanted to zero in on an aspect of voter suppression I don’t think gets enough attention: disenfranchisement of formerly incarcerated individuals. Desmond Meade is the Founder and President of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, but he’s also impacted directly by this issue, because he in years past he was addicted to drugs and spent some time in prison. He is one of the well over one million U.S. citizens living in Florida with very little hope of ever having their civil rights – including their voting rights – restored. He has a law degree, but he can’t sit for the bar. He’s active in his community and his wife ran for the state legislature, but he can’t vote. But Desmond isn’t discouraged. He’s fighting back and he’s inspiring a lot of people, including me.   Important Links: @DesmondMeade @FLRightsRestore FloridaRRC.org @LetAmericaVote LetAmericaVote.org LetAmericaVote.org/intern @JasonKander @Majority54 Learn more about your ad choices.

College Affordability

Remember two years ago when we still talked about the college debt crisis? Remember when what to do about it was one of the defining topics of the Democratic primary for president? I’m nostalgic for those days, and I lament the fact that it barely qualifies as one of the most divisive issues anymore – solely because the people in power refuse to care about it.  I’m interested in reviving the conversation. After today’s interview, I’ll address the talking points you hear from the other side about this: this is about the extravagant lifestyles of studentsthis generation is too lazy and entitledpeople shouldn’t take out debt if they can’t afford to pay it back But before we do, I want to make sure we have a conversation to make the issue real. Curry Oglesby and I sat down in a Maryland diner to talk about the gauntlet she’s traveled thanks to college loans.  She entered Howard University on a full scholarship and – when it comes to setting herself up for a growing field – she chose one of the savviest majors she could.  A bad piece of advice from a student advisor and a snowstorm later, she was nearly underwater in debt.  Important Links: @Majority54 @JasonKander hellomajority54@gmail.com Learn more about your ad choices.

Gun Sense in America

I have an F rating from the NRA. They’ve spent millions against me. The leaders of the NRA hate me, but they loathe Shannon Watts. And I have a feeling you’re gonna love her.  We closed 2017 by talking to a life-long activist and imploring you to deepen your involvement, so it makes sense to open 2018 talking to someone who grabbed an oar a few years ago and hasn’t stopped rowing since. Shannon founded Moms Demand Action, one of the most effective groups working to reduce gun violence, the day after the tragedy at Sandy Hook. Today, Moms Demand Action has a chapter in every state and is effecting change at the local, state and national level. As you’ll learn, the work they do is inspiring, and so is a conversation with Shannon.

Special Episode: Grab an Oar: A conversation about activism with Cecile Richards

This is a special episode of Majority 54.  Usually this show focuses on a single divisive issue by talking to a single individual experiencing it in their everyday life.  But from the beginning, I wanted to conclude this year with a different kind of conversation – one specifically about activism. 2017 has been a year of progressive activism. It’s drawn people out of their homes in so many inspiring ways, and from the women’s march to the #MeToo movement, the resistance has been especially fueled by women, so it’s appropriate that this special episode is a conversation with my friend Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood. Cecile has been an activist her entire life – from protesting the Vietnam War as a seventh grader to organizing union workers across several states in her twenties to running one of the most important healthcare organizations in the country today.  We actually sat down to talk about the subject of women’s equality a couple months ago – before the #MeToo movement had even begun. The conversation about women’s equality really became – because I find Cecile so inspiring – one about a life of activism and what she sees for the future.  Listen to this episode to cap off 2017 and go inspired into 2018. At the end of the conversation, I'll share my thoughts about the state of the progressive movement in America and what your role and my role should be in 2018.

The Border Wall

It’s hard to think of a more polarizing issue than the wall Trump wants to build on our southern border. The conversation you’re about to hear was recorded in a wooden barn, on Tony Sedgwick’s ranch in Nogales, Arizona. Tony’s a Republican who didn’t vote for Donald Trump. In fact, Trump drove Tony all the way out of the party. He’s a small-town lawyer turned full-time Arizona rancher working the land that’s been in his family for generations. If President Trump is going to build his wall, he’ll have to build part of it on Tony’s ranch, which won’t be the first time the federal government has been in a fight with Tony Sedgwick. But as you’ll hear, Tony’s objection isn’t just about keeping the government off his property. As an independent-minded conservative westerner, he fundamentally disagrees with the President’s wall and calls it a bunch of hooey. I drove down to Tony’s 3,600 acre ranch where his nearest neighbors live in Mexico to record what turned out to be an incredible conversation with an absolutely brilliant guy.   Important Links: @Majority54 @JasonKander hellomajority54@gmail.com Learn more about your ad choices.
