12/2/19 Mark Perry on The Real Reason The Navy Stood Up To Trump

Mark Perry discusses what he calls “the biggest breakdown in civil-military relations since Vietnam”: the controversy over the war crimes trial of Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher. By refusing to allow the Navy to discipline Gallagher in the way they intended, Trump has essentially intervened in the military justice process as, Perry thinks, a move to curry favor with his base. Perry is adamant that we really do have a problem with special forces that run around the world without accountability, pretending to fight terrorism but really just terrorizing civilian populations and committing war crimes. Perry wonders whether this will finally force some of Trump’s base in the military to abandon him in the upcoming election.

11/29/19 Jeb Sprague on the Latest Latin American Deep State Coup

Scott interviews Jeb Sprague about his work studying U.S.-backed coups in Latin America, particularly the current one in Bolivia. Support for democracy and the rule of law is one thing, say Scott and Sprague, but it is quite another to demand that the military rush in to upend the normal political process, which is essentially what is happening now. Sprague advocates letting countries sort out their own political affairs, even when it leads to results that aren’t precisely what the political elite in the U.S. would have chosen.

Discussed on the show:

Jeb Sprague is a Research Associate at the University of California, Riverside and previously taught at UVA and UCSB.

11/22/19 Aaron Maté on the Dangerous Precedent of ‘Russiagate’

Scott talks to Aaron Maté about the role John Brennan and the CIA might have played in the investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 election. Although Maté is a progressive, he understands how dangerous it is to have intelligence agencies with the power to overturn the results of a democratic election. In fact, this is no different than what our CIA has done in lots of other countries when America supports a regime change in favor of democracy, but then the people of that country elect someone our government doesn’t like. Maté recognizes what a dangerous precedent this sets for everyone involved.

11/22/19 Doug Bandow on Making Peace with the Rest of the World

Doug Bandow explains why the pathological need for neocons and neoliberals in Washington to antagonize other powerful countries is so dangerous for America. Russia and China, he says, can both be our allies. It makes no sense for the U.S. military to be involved in every conflict everywhere in the world, and pretending to be the world empire will only endanger American interests by making future conflicts more likely.

11/22/19 Michael Boldin on the PATRIOT Act

Michael Boldin describes the appalling state of an American government that has strayed so far from its founding principles as codified by the constitution. Today the federal government wields so much power over every aspect of our lives that the only rational choice is to seize as much control as possible while your party is winning, and then hope that your opponents don’t abuse that same power too much while they are. Tom Woods calls this a perpetual low-grade civil war. The alternative, which our founders envisioned and which Boldin still feels is possible, is leaving as much as we can up to states and cities, so that the people of California and Idaho and Virginia can mostly live their own way without caring if people across the country want to live differently. His organization is advocating this type of local resistance to federal laws on drugs, police and surveillance powers, national guard conscription, and many others.

Discussed on the show:

Michael Boldin is the founder and executive director of the Tenth Amendment Center, which advocates state nullification as a means of local resistance to unjust federal laws. Follow him on Twitter @michaelboldin.

11/22/19 Michael Heise on Reclaiming the Libertarian Party

Michael Heise of the Libertarian Party Mises Caucus tells Scott about his work in his hometown to decriminalize marijuana. He describes the struggles trying to appeal to an overwhelmingly liberal populace and city council, but also the ways he’s been able to make the libertarian message appeal to them on grounds of social justice and personal freedoms. Heise says that on the national scene libertarians can’t be content to just be the vaguely centrist, moderate “third option”; the party needs to try to wake people up to the radical message of liberty the way Ron Paul did during his presidential campaigns.
