Description

Sarah Kendzior and Andrea Chalupa are experts on authoritarian states who warned America about election hacking years before 2016. Here, they take a deep dive on the news, skipping outrage to deliver analysis, history, context, and sharp insight on global affairs.

We start off by looking at The Week The Mueller Probe Died in light of new information that’s been revealed since March. We go on to discuss the 2020 race, threats to election integrity, and the novelty of Elizabeth Warren.
Constitutional law and voting rights attorney John Bonifaz answers our questions about one of the most contentious topics today – whether, when, and how to impeach Donald Trump. Bonifaz is the president and co-founder of Free Speech for People, a non-partisan advocacy group for a new constitutional amendment to limit campaign spending and repeal Citizens United, and the author of Warrior-King: The Case for Impeaching George W. Bush. He is also the co-author of the January 2019 op-ed “Time to Impeach Donald Trump” with Representative Rashida Tlaib.
This episode picks up where we left off last week in our breakdown of the Mueller Report, in particular the role of Paul Manafort who flagrantly announced his crimes and no one did anything to stop him; the constant underestimation of this transnational crime syndicate masquerading as a government that spurred both the press and the Mueller probe to give them a pass; and the revelation that all fifty states were targeted and potentially compromised by Russia in 2016, despite earlier denials.
At long last, the Mueller Report is here, and we are…underwhelmed. In the first episode of a two-part Mueller Report Special, we do an overview of the bizarre sequence of events that led to the Barr Report and the Mueller Report, which have been eclipsed by propaganda and atrocious media coverage. We examine the contents of the report itself, and ask questions like: why did Mueller fail to indict? Why did it take two years for Mueller to release a report on crimes that were documented in the public domain? Since when is obstructing justice openly no longer obstructing justice at all?
Impeach the Nazi-in-Chief

Impeach the Nazi-in-Chief

2019-04-1001:04:595

We lay out, yet again, the urgent arguments for impeachment, and fact-check those we often hear against it. We also interview Alexandra Flores-Quilty (@AFQ_92) of the grassroots group By the People (@by_the_ppl) that works with Rep. Rashida Tlaib and other Congressional leaders to call for impeachment hearings. The worsening crisis at the U.S. border; the continued purge of our government leaving crucial key positions unfilled, threatening our national security and public safety; politically motivated attacks on investigators and other law enforcement; just this week alone strengthen the case.

We discuss the Barr memo fallout, the insipid media coverage, the unchecked assassins of Russia and Saudi Arabia, Ukraine's election, FBI purges, and more.
The Barr Report

The Barr Report

2019-03-2701:27:0411

As we’ve said repeatedly at Gaslit Nation, the crisis in the US was never about Trump vs Mueller, but about corruption and exploitation – about massive institutional failure that worsened over multiple decades, culminating in a kleptocracy backed by a transnational crime syndicate. We discuss what’s next for the US and the world as the Trump team ramps up its autocratic goals.  
March 2019 marks the five-year anniversary of Russia’s annexation of Crimea. We explain why the fake referendum in Crimea is called a "referendum by gun point" and provide background on Russia's annexation which had been in the works since the mid-2000s. The story of human rights abuses that continue to this day in Russian-occupied Crimea are told through the political prisoner Oleg Sentsov, a filmmaker kidnapped from Crimea and held in a Siberian penal colony on trumped up charges. Despite the harsh conditions, Sentsov defies the odds by continuing to produce art, including a feature film. His story is an urgent reminder to choose hope over despair. 
Impeach Normalization

Impeach Normalization

2019-03-1401:35:406

Impeachment sends a message about who we are as a country and what we will accept and abide. The rule of law demands action. Refusing to take action is normalizing atrocity. Lawlessness must be confronted regardless of the outcome, as a matter of principle and conscience. Fighting only the battles that you know you will win is a sure way of ensuring you lose; preemptive surrender, in a rapidly consolidating autocracy, is permanent surrender. The American people have suffered enough under Trump; they should not have to suffer due to Pelosi’s capitulation as well. We all deserve better than this.  
Rotting Monuments

Rotting Monuments

2019-03-0601:05:026

Like Trump Tower Moscow, which was supposed to be the tallest building in Europe with a penthouse for mass-murderer Putin and an Ivanka Trump branded spa, the White House was another monument for Trump, in a long list of monuments he's built for himself over the years, and one that would help him and his family continue to live above the law.

Too many people treat politics like sports. We shouldn't arbitrarily choose our team and stay loyal just because they are our team.

episode 30: in listing trump's monuments to himself, you neglected the biggest, maybe too obvious one of all: his southern border wall, paid for in just the way he likes best- the taxpayers.

and to your point I think in a lot of ways Trump is acting out what this government shutdown is, another way to look at it, he's trying to get out - he's waiting for the American public to fire him waiting for impeachment because he doesn't have a way out... because he can't quit on Putin but if the American public impeaches him he can say, well you know I couldn't do anything about that Vlad old buddy. I think he would be happy to be out I think he is in fact more afraid of the Russians who have a very long reach then he is of anything that the American public can do to him

what bothers me is that the American public isn't calling for impeachment that there are so much on social media that appears to be a moderate voice going oh well we don't need to go that far and the fact that they don't understand what impeachment is there confusing it with being indicted for crimes and not impeachable offenses

This podcast has inspired me in the midst of darkness and despair. You've reminded me that not only can we choose faith over despair, now is a time when making that conscious act to CHOOSE faith over despair becomes an act of empowered rebellion and radical loyalty to that which we love. Of course, in order to truly choose for what we love, we must KNOW what we love, as Sydette Harry described so well with "does baby have hat". Thank you!

Investigating and reporting on important issues affecting the nation. They were right before the election and they’re still right now. Listen up.

I really want to like this. But they both sound bored, flat and tired. I can be that by myself.

I think what you're doing is superb journalism. This kind of reporting and in-depth analysis about the Trump-Russia skullduggery is critical and needed more than ever during these critical times. Thank you so much! I'll be listening!

Not worth your time. Over-sensationalist and void of objectivity.

Hunter Cawood I've only listened to three minutes of one episode so far, so I haven't formulated any opinions yet. Just out of curiosity though, how much of the podcast did you listen to before making your conclusion? Have you listened to an entire episode to completion? Who knows, maybe I'll ultimately agree with you. But if I do, it will only be after listening to at least two or three episodes to completion.
