"And, you know, I hope those guys aren't discovered and have their have their careers ended its courageous what they're doing. I mean, we've already seen one guy. And the Marines have his career ended because he went on the record under his own name. I think this this guy what was named Stuart Sheller, you know, do it Salary? Yeah, He's a very, very plainly and anybody knows anything about the military knows this right? Little mistakes down the ranks can be very, very harshly punished. We just had the United States military leave behind. The top rashly behind $85 billion in equipment and suffered a humiliating defeat. And there's no accountability at the top. None at all from anybody. It's stunning. Talking to Michael Anton, author of one of My Favorite books, the Stakes America at the Point of No Return, by the Way, folks. Michael was also a Trump administration officials familiar with the national security infrastructure. Michael question. I get a lot on email, social media and elsewhere, and it's a hard one to answer because it's it's you know, I don't have it easy. If I did, I'd give it to them. But we spoke to President Trump yesterday. Is there any way To destroy large swaths of this equipment we left behind or is this just at this point gone? I mean, they hide in civilian areas. I mean, a lot of it was small arms that are going to disappear. I mean, it said that they're probably not keeping weapons caches anywhere at this point. I mean, is this just give us a bad news? I mean, is this just gone? I suppose if we could track some of the larger pieces, they could be hit with drones, Hellfire missiles, you know, for the big helicopters and things like that. Um, I don't know how how well, our ability is to track this stuff. But here's the question if we knew we were getting Out in advance. Why didn't we quietly start to bring all of this stuff home as much as possible, taking inventory and say, Okay, this stuff we can get out this stuff we can't and then destroy the stuff that we couldn't Take out ourselves before the evacuation started. I mean, everything about this operation was a complete botch from the beginning, you know, Closing Bagram Airbase first, Mark Milley is on the record saying, Oh, it's not important. It doesn't matter that turns out to have been a catastrophic miscalculation. If it was a miscalculation, I mean, I don't have any special insight. But when somebody makes a mistake this dumb that you know, a third grader, my, you know, my kids could say in advance. Oh, yeah. You know, you don't do it that way. You have to wonder if it was deliberate. Yeah. I mean, Michael, you know, I love my wife. But she, you know, she's a Web designer. She's not a military strategist. She looks at me on the couch when I will watching Fox, and we're listening to all this stupidity about the equipment. She's like, Why not just, you know, throw sand in the gas tank of some of these guys mean seriously, like at least make it hard to drive. Not that you can't fix it, but it's an obstacle to at least driving them in a parade the next day. I mean, they're already exactly said Children could have made this decision example the bin Laden raid which was May of 2011, if I recall correctly, they went in with these two stealth Black Hawk helicopters that have never been used before. This is all in the public record. One of them crashed as they were trying to land and this is guys. In the middle of a stealth operation that the host country government doesn't know about managed to destroy the crashed helicopters before they all got onto the second one and got out. Right. That's right, right? They managed to do it now. Granted, that was only one helicopter. But again, it's at night Secret Mission, the most sensitive mission the U. S military has mounted in in decades without the host governments knowledge and they still managed to do it. We couldn't do any of this in advance with complete for knowledge and total control of the theater before we abandoned it to enemies. It's mind boggling. It's mind boggling. Michael, We're talking to Michael Anton, author of The States America at the point of No Return a fantastic book. I got a minute left and I want to get your answer. I'm not sure if I read it in some of you. I read your work all the time. It's really terrific. It may have been You who wrote somewhere that you know the way to win this battle against the left is to start imposing real material costs. I'm not sure if it was you or someone else, but it sounds like something you would write anyway, cause they learn to do that to us. It was you Okay? Do you send some kind of American Renaissance coming? I hope not being a you know, an unnecessary optimist here, but I really do. I sense like people have seen it. They felt real material losses imposed upon them by Democrats. And they've had about enough of this crap and I sent a renaissance. Come, I could be wrong. I mean, your your final thoughts on that. I hope so. I sense a couple things one of the sense of stiffer spine in red states among governors and state legislators that are willing to say you know what? Supreme Court You know what federal government we're going to pass. This law will go to court. We will fight this. We're not just going to knuckle under right. That's not a good time. The other thing, too, is the amount of stunning incompetence on display I think has caused the skills to fall from a lot of eyes. People go. Oh, wait this This really is not the country I grew up in anymore. It can't do simple things anymore. It never tells the truth. No one's held accountable. This system isn't working. This can't go on and you know that's that's a negative thought. But it's a negative thought that leads to a positive thought, which is there has to be changed. Yeah, I agree. We don't deify institutions anymore. I think conservatives you and I and people who write and do content production for a living are like even default positions who may have had in the past with institutions once revered were like you know what? We're going to give that a second look, And I think that's a good thing for public accountability. Michael Anton always a great guest. Thanks for joining the show for the 85th time. We appreciate it will always have your back. Thanks. Thank you. Right. You got it, folks. Michael. Anton. There you go. Telling you very few people have their eyeballs on the left like he does very few. And don't forget the Smails excitation get nothing and you'll like it. Therefore, we have to take it. I'm Dan Bongino. We'll be right back, You know?.
Michael Anton Suggests U.S. Could Have Destroyed or Removed Equipment Left to Taliban

"Putrid swamp. You're listening to the Dan Bongino Show. Here he is Dan Bongino. Got to tell you watching this. I don't know if you heard yesterday's show watching this leftist lunatic Mardini Johnny Meltdown on Twitter. Over the last few days has been oddly rewarded. I believe or what I'll get to boy that later. It's really funny. I'm telling you Wait till I read the tweet. She can't help it. She cannot control herself. That's what happens. A cat ladies got about 72 cats. That's what happens. The cats don't stop her. Alright? Definitely not a cat lady here, but a guy who I hear cooks really Well, Michael Anton. Welcome back to the show for like the 75th time or whatever. I watched the video of you preparing a I don't know. I'm not a cook, but like a reduction or something like that, man. You're pretty talented. Yeah, I went. I went to school for that on at night just for fun. And and our friend Dave re boy. Was the one who's always been telling me to make a video. People would love that people would love it, and I just happened to mention two minute text that morning. Well, this is what I'm making today. And he said tape it. I'll edit it and add a soundtrack and put it up. So I did that. And they was right that people it was pretty popular. Dave is always a source of good advice. We love Dave. He also benches like 4 50 for fun for a warm up, So yeah, like him, you're multifaceted Michael, National Security expert author of the book. The stakes America at the point of No return a spectacular book to say that's been sadly present. I wish the book was wrong. I really did, you know, but sad. I think it is. It ruined my reputation. You know, it's right, right? Right. Sky got everything wrong. I'd be thinking this is perfect because you love the country and that's why you're such a harsh critic of the left. So, Michael, I was thinking to you with this Texas heartbeat bill, not a particularly radical bill. If an infant has a heartbeat, you know, let the infant live. I mean, there's really nothing radical about it left. This, of course hate that. It's a death cult, a culture of death, and they've lost their minds. And it reminded me of your piece in the American mind. And one of the things you had in there was The smells exhortation. You'll get nothing and you'll like it how the Democrats claim to be all in it for democracy. And yet when we vote for things like saving human lives like No, no Democracy is no good. Get rid of that democracy crab just for listeners who don't remember. So there's a famous movie in 1980 called Caddyshack one of the great comedies of all time, and There's a character named Judge Smails. He's sort of the villain played by Ted Knight. You know, from the Mary Tyler Moore Show that sort of distinguished, white haired comic actor and as they're walking, you know, I'd like the ninth hole. To get a sandwich on the golf course. His obnoxious nephew Spalding starts listing all the things he wants. Its male smacks him on the back of the head and says, You'll get nothing and like it right. It's one of the great lines of the movie. Now, the I I use that because that seems to be the attitude of the ruling class toward Deplorables, right. We're going to make sure that you get nothing If you vote on something will overturn it. You know, Whatever policy we put in place is going to benefit the coast and screw the middle and and here's the thing. You can't complain about it. If you complain about it will just treat You needed more harshly. You have to love the fact that you're ruled by people who hate you and never listen to you and never give you anything. You gotta not just not just accept your inferiority. You've got to be enthused about it. That's their attitude toward us. Er and Michael, you know really this I could talk to you forever because I have a set of questions. I want to ask, but I never actually get to them because you say something. A piece by interested leads me to another question. So you just said it. So yesterday I got into this online spat with this leftist goofball Nandhini. Johnny or something, Whatever sick, some kind of fact checking and she sits at home with her cats all day, and all she does is try to get websites, uh, to pull ads down or people to pull ads down from websites. So this Texas abortion thing, this heartbeat bill passes and Ben Shapiro at the Daily Weapons a conservative, obviously Ben Ben and his website with a great We're saving human lives like that's a good thing. So this woman loses her mind, and she goes after the ad company pull the ads from the daily wire site of media. You can't support life and reminds me what you just said that it's it's. It's not good enough that the left gets to whack infants in the room. If the right there is to fight it and doesn't celebrate whacking if into the room, you must be taking out and bankrupted immediately. Well. Part of this stems from the fact that you know the American public's opinion about an abortion since Roe has been pretty ambivalent. That is to say there's a sort of a fringe on either side that wants totally totally legal or totally illegal, and most people are somewhere in the middle, but they trend Toward slightly pro life That is to say, Well, I wouldn't Wow, this exception. I would allow that exception. But when you come up with these extreme practices, remember the partial birth fight in the nineties? Like you know, the this turns out to be like 80% of American public say yes. Partial birth abortion should be banned right? The left thinks that any little crack in the wall means that the eventual total loss for them and this is why they defend every single position to the end because they know at heart. Public opinion is not with them. And that this chip away strategy that the right has been pursuing could someday bear some real fruit. That's why they freak out over stuff that seems to almost everybody else, like only common sense. You're such a good analyst of the of the left. You're right. That's what it is. They feel like if there's a crack in the dike that the whole, you know damn is gonna blow and that the water is going to overwhelm the village. So they fight these wars as if everything's this Manukyan event, you know, like it's the end of times, and that's hard to fight when the right doesn't fight back the same way, and I think that's why it's a symmetric in some ways. But let me move on to something else. Because again, your your analysis of them is always spot on. You know the euphemisms game with the left. This is one of the things that drives me crazy. You know, they're not illegal immigrants or undocumented. They've got a name for everything. Their new name game now is with hostages. So we left people behind in Afghanistan. National Security is one of your many areas of expertise. But we left people behind. There's no doubt about that. There were American citizens left behind behind terrorist Taliban lines in Afghanistan. Okay by any common sense definition of the word. The Taliban is not letting them leave, meaning their hostages. And now you see this guy Newsweek? Naveed Jamali. I think that's his name. He's like, No, no, no, They're not preventing the people from leaving Michael. It's just the planes as if they were going to, like, Do a Superman and fly out of Afghanistan themselves or swim out of a landlocked country. The euphemisms game. Drives me nuts with them. They can never be honest. It's so hard to disentangle the truth about what's going on there, too, because there are reports that our own government the State Department has prevented people from this refused to clear planes. And then when that was brought up, you know, people say, Well, why is the state Department blocking Americans from exiting? Well, some of the people defending the regime said No, No, no. The State Department didn't block any of these people. They just blocked the plane. Well, as you said, I can't fly out by themselves. The only way they can get out as it is, if the planes are cleared to fly, and you can't get a straight answer. Of anyone, whether it's you know somebody like Jen Psaki or the other officials at the Pentagon or at the State Department. I mean, all the spokespeople are just useless at best, and when you can get a Cabinet secretary in front of a podium and asked him straight questions, you never get a straight answer, So it's very hard to know what's going on. Except, you know, you get tidbits of information from mid level military officers who are either were there or have been there. And you know, at some risk to their career. They try to tell you, you know snippets of the truth, And it's not flattering to the administration..
Michael Anton Says Liberal Attitude Is 'You'll Get Nothing and Like It'

"Dan bongino welcome to the bongino brief. I'm dan bongino all right. So a buddy. Michael anton hits it again nails again about what went wrong and afghanistan. Mike alonzo very gifted writer. He's been a member of the national security community for a long time but unlike many members of the national security community he calls out the swamp. The swampy knows he was in and says. Here's the problems would afghanistan. He nails it in two specific ways and then dominant place emma audio of donald trump and omitted as well and trump basically says the same thing. And it's kind of hilarious. How the left is always calling out trump. but he always seems to get it when they don't all of these disasters that have happened happened. The minute trump left office right all of them election debacles inflation open borders. I mean the left. There's this is supposed to be the smart correct. I'm not crazy right. The media's told us the left they're the benighted class they're the smart ones. You know tolerance coexist bumper stickers. This is all we've heard about these geniuses in academia hollywood elitist. There's so much smarter than us. The little people the smelly walmart crowd. You know the smellie's that's what we've heard yet. How is it that every time. They're in charge and they're leftist ideas are implemented right. When you get a jimmy carter. When you get a michael dukakis whether it's in massachusetts or elsewhere how is it every time you implement these joe biden or barack obama things collapse. How is that. Anton nails in this piece afghanistan doomed from the start american mind. Michael anton michael anton again has been a member of the national security apparatus. Whatever you wanna call these fancy words for a long time and he makes he makes a lot of points of this piece. But in the interest of time and have to distill it down to two hard takeaways part number one he talks about how these liberal americans and even in centrists now everybody. Oh you're going to celebrate diversity. All right well. What about when diversity means that. Some people don't look at democracy the same way we do. No don't say that that's racist here. Quote michael anton. Modern americans are endlessly. Told quote celebrate diversity but are also hector to treat other people as if they're interchangeable and all behave in the same ways and want the same things this bedrock assumption of woke america is the ultimate shoal on which the afghan war foundered a man. He goes on to express any doubt. That a fundamentally premodern people talking about afghanistan with entirely different experiences and expectations from state department bureaucrat or ngo do-gooder especially to suggest that democracy might not be an easy sell in the hindu kush was instantly to expose oneself to the charge of racism or islamaphobia. The few who dared quickly learn not to.
Michael Anton Says U.S. Should Have Made Afghaninstan War 'Short and Big'
"This is a good one. Michael Anton is terrific, right? We've had him as a guest on the show. Now, I think twice spent on my Fox news show as well. The pieces in the American minds called Afghanistan doing from the start now, Michael Anton Calls out the swamp but admits Hey, listen, I was in there he was in the national security infrastructure team. The Bush administration and also the Trump administration. But he's been in my opinion, a truth teller on these issues. And let's bring up the idea of revenge first, and we'll go into another point. He makes about how the left and the the the world utopians always like to celebrate diversity. And yet when you bring up the idea of diversity, and that cultures may view democracy differently. Representative democracy then it's considered racist. You can't say that Well, we'll say what we want, because it's not racist. It's factually accurate, but getting back to the whole idea of revenge is, Congressman Crenshaw said this morning, not being a strategy. It absolutely is. Anton says this These are quoting Machiavelli. He says. The Romans Machiavelli says made their wars short and big. Americans have taken to making our wars small and long. We inflict pinprick strikes over decades rather than getting the whole thing over within a matter of days or weeks. A better strategy right after 9 11 would have been to do what we did, but finish the job at Tora Bora and then leave immediately with a note on the fridge, saying, if you do anything like that again, We'll be back quickly. With overwhelming force. And we'll leave just as quickly. We will do that as many times as you
Does 'Revenge' Work as a War Strategy?
"Is a strategy and maybe after 9 11 When we went into Afghanistan, our focus should have been revenge. And maybe we should really have that national conversation. Air quotes Everybody always talks about on every other issue. Maybe our idea should have been to go in there and inflict punishing generational damage on our enemies so that they never think about attacking us again. It's a point I'm gonna get you brought up by Michael Anton in an excellent piece. Maybe we should have won him with his big strike. With a massive strike. We should have finished the job and leveled that place. I know that. Listen, it's not me like it. Trying to, you know, chess part for speaking faux bravado. You can understand what we say. Well, Dan, it wasn't you going in there? It wasn't I was a secret service agent at the time. I wasn't in the military, and that's a fair criticism. Fair. I'm not immune to criticism. I'm gonna region a second, a guy and, uh, send me a message on my Facebook page during the break of disagrees You know you're owed the other side as well. But please Revenge is a strategy. You may not like it, but it is most certainly a strategy here. I got this from Philip during the break. He says, Dan I like what you do, but I disagree with your take that revenge is a strategy. He agrees with Congressman Crenshaw, who had said that this morning on Fox News that revenge is in a strategy, he says it's not a strategy. It can be a motivator, but it doesn't lay out a plan to achieve an objective. Act only out of revenge is a reflex and his irresponsible Philip II deeply appreciate your perspective. I mean that I don't only take feedback on the show or read it. That's positive. That would be disingenuous. The country of 330 million people, which that with divergent views, But I think you're making my point candidly, not yours. Yes, it is a motivator, but it's also a de motivator. An act of violence motivated out of revenge as a war strategy is a very real motivation to not do what
We Have to Accept That the Afghan Military Lost
"Bring up the idea of the song cost and how that's the one commonality every time we see a loss, material loss financial loss. Economic loss because it applies here, too. It had been 20 years. Clearly the Afghan population, not stereotyping. Everyone there. I don't do that. It's unfair to them. But the Afghan population writ large was not embracing democracy. They just weren't The way we needed them to the Afghan army, although many fought valiantly, largely largely did not. When the time came right for them to defend the country. They didn't That's not to knock him. Many fought and died. They had a lot of casualties and a lot of deaths. But the sad reality is the Army lost. Are we not going to accept that? Are we going to gloss past that? We're just gonna pretend it didn't happen so we can give the American people a a A pseudo rosy assessment of what's really going on. No, No, they fought Bray. Okay, point taken, they lost. That's a fact. That's a sunk cost. They lost surrendered equipment surrendered weapons surrendered Blackhawks the Taliban as an air force. How competent is we'll only find out in the coming weeks Sadly. They lost. I'm not questioning anybody's brave. I don't know. Well, every single Afghan military officer to be able to gauge your individual bravery. I'm telling you the truth because you deserve it. They lost This was the son cost. How long are we going to be there? Bring this up because Donald Trump had an interesting interview last night with Sean Hannity. Where he brought up. The very idea of retribution and revenge is the strategy the same concept Michael Anton brings up in this piece, and I think it's time we re evaluate that a concept completely

Michael Anton Explains Democrats' Form of Gaslighting as 'Celebration Parallax'
"Of calling people names and stigmatizing them with unfair labels and using useful idiot organizations. It's also part of the gas lighting strategy and the lie.

"The people in the North. In parts are saying, Why don't we just get out of the city of Atlanta and become our own incorporated city that we can have our own police force and we can hire people who are going to enforce the law and let them know that we back then? You know, Michael, this makes me think of the it's really used in for religious institutions. More We talk about the term but the term subsidiarity, which is really the best level of administration, the most effective level of administration is going to be local. You know, In other words, you're H o A is going to be more receptive to what you need, because it's probably only what 102 100 homes and Eurasia way vote means a whole lot. It's one of 200 then the president to you, because he really doesn't care. I mean, you know, hundreds of millions of people vote for the president, of course of election cycles. Your vote. You know it matters, but you know, mathematically. It obviously doesn't matter as much. And I think this is one of those ideas that listen. If New York State is so big, it's not going to listen to him Onondaga County or whatever it may be. You know that Maybe these counties could join us, And I think having come from Maryland having lived there for a long time, Western Maryland Michael is always like my gosh. Why can't Can we get out of here? Can we go to West? Virginia? Yeah, Western Western, You know, I I know very little about the area, but I've been through it a couple of times. And once you get to Frederick and beyond the whole character of the state is utterly utterly different than what you see in Baltimore or around the chest speak. It's just it has way more in common with West Virginia or rural Pennsylvania, then And or, you know, or even parts of Virginia that don't have anything anymore, really in common with Northern Virginia, and yet because of the way because there's the dominance of urban and suburban areas in terms of population, you can vote to your heart's content in Western Maryland, and it doesn't matter. You're just going to lose every time the same way somebody in upstate New York will always get out.

Michael Anton Explains the Celebration Parallax
"So again, Michael, Welcome to the show. I've interviewed you before you were terrific. We were talking before the election. Um and you had folks. Michael had written an article literally quoting the left about really violent things, they said, including threats towards him, and they managed to turn it around and make the article about me and Michael creating like this Violent uh, you know, political echoes. System. That was just hilarious. Because we were I mean, literally, Michael. You and I quoted the left. You remember that piece? Yeah. Yeah. You quote them. You quote them back to themselves, and they get very angry. They they're allowed. This is a term I coined. It's a geeky term. But it's kind of beginning to catch on called the Celebration parallax Right? Because the Parallax is a thing that depending on which angle you look at it, It looks different, even though it's the same thing. So if you know, if they say, Hey, we need that we might need to use the military to drag Trump out of the White House. Right. It's fine, because they they mean it in a good way because they hate Trump. And if we say holy cow they're talking about using the military to drag trump out of the White House. They go crazy conspiracy fears. You guys are inciting violence. You know you're not allowed to say that. But you just said it. Right, but we're not all upset.
Disinformation is Solvable
"We have this ideal of free speech, which is that there's a marketplace of ideas out there that more speeches always better because the good ideas will win out in the end. It's a kind of fundamentally optimistic idea. It comes originally from the political philosopher, John Stewart Mills and his book on Liberty in the nineteenth century, and then it Kinda comes into Supreme Court land in the twentieth century but it often turns out not to be true there various eras in history where propaganda and false ideas have actually won the day in politics you can think about the Nazis you can think about times of Soviet, union communism other nine, thousand, nine, hundred examples of. Fascism and more recent governments in places like Brazil and India, where disinformation has really one out and so I think that we are flirting with that possibility in a scary way in the United States right now the fact is marketplace of ideas was always a pretty shaky concept and so free speech is really important to our democracy but we need I think to reconceptualise how we think about it and how we protect it in a way that really protects the speech that supports democracy instead of threatening it too. So we get our terms clear sale little about how disinformation with a D. differs from misinformation with an m yeah I mean these are sort of. Terms that are only I think the definitions are becoming clearer kind of as we speak but misinformation usually refers to fax that turn out to be wrong and disinformation refers to wrong facts that are being deliberately pedaled for political end. So it's the more sinister version. Disinformation intentional deception often fueled by. Actors of different kinds is sort of crowding out the good information, economics called Gresham's law where you know the bad money the money that's fake gold kind of is circulating everywhere in the real money disappears from the marketplace in a way that something like that happening with information right with is just all of this swirling nonsense depending on where you get your information from and you can't tell what's the good information or if there's any good information in that context way. So one way to think about this is that it used to be hard. To speak, we had gatekeepers, we had these traditional media companies that had a real hold and sort of control over speech. Now, it's really easy to speak, but it's very hard to be heard, and some of what we see in disinformation campaigns is a deliberate effort to drown out true speech or to smear the reputations of people especially online so that they'll effectively be silenced they'll leave the space they won't keep trying to talk, and so it's the use of speech to suppress speech, and that is very challenging for our American First Amendment to deal with. Having you had a really good example in your your piece, which was a me my I hadn't come across that the Democrats were threatening to secede from the country. The election. Just tell that story in brief because it was such a tidy example of sort of you know in the famous like mark. Twain like a lie that God halfway around the world before the truth guidance boots on him and it's just a piece of nonsense spread like wildfire, right? Yeah. So over the summer, a group of academics and former. Administration officials, former campaign staffers, pollsters they got together to game out the twenty twenty election and they played out various scenarios in which one or the other candidate won. It was close there was litigation. There wasn't there basically testing the system of American democracy and Rosa Brooks who was one of the CO organizers of this project wrote an essay in the Washington Post in which you mentioned that in one of the several hypothetical Scenarios Biden won the popular vote Belossi the Electoral College and fictional team Biden talked about trying to ask California and the Pacific northwest threatened to secede as a way of pressuring Republicans to add more succeeds to the Senate there's just a sentence about this in Rosa Brooks's essay Out of that sentence comes an article by Michael Anton- a former trump official and a conservative publication. Arguing that a coup is coming and from that article comes and appearance by another trump official Tucker Carlson show talking about this fictional threat of a democratic coup, very popular right-wing podcast named Dan Bongino. He shows up making videos about this that are getting millions and millions of views on social media president trump tweets in praise of publication called Revolver News, a right-wing website, which is also spreading this false story and what you see here, all the parts of the right wing media ecosystem coming together to really give a big platform to this made up idea that the Democrats are planning a coup.
Free speech and the struggle against misinformation ahead of 2020 election
"Last week, The New York Post published a potentially damaging story about Hunter Biden, son of the Democratic presidential nominee. Based on emails, The Post said, were provided by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and originally harvested from a laptop computer left in a Delaware repair shop. There were enough questions about the authenticity of the emails that most mainstream media declined to publish the story, but it's the kind of content that Khun spread like wildfire on Social media. In a remarkable move Twitter on Wednesday Band users from sharing links to the story because it said the emails may have been hacked and contained private information. It reversed course two days later after Republicans accused Twitter of censorship. But the episode illustrates a question our guest, Emily Bazelon, has been thinking about in an age when questionable, Perhaps even fabricated content can sweep through the digital world unchecked. Does our traditional commitment to unfettered free speech still serve democracy. And the cover story for this week's New York Times Magazine, Basil on surveys the impact that lies and conspiracy theories sometimes promoted by foreign actors can have on our political discourse. And she explores how other countries think differently about free speech and its relationship to a healthy democracy. Emily Bazelon is a graduate of the Yale Law School and a journalist. She's a staff writer for the New York Times Magazine and the Truman Capote fellow for Creative Writing at Yale Law School. She's also the author of two books. She joins us from her home in New Haven, Connecticut. Emily Bazelon welcome back to fresh air. Thanks so much for having me you open your piece with a story that began making the rounds some months back, among right wing voices on the Internet that there was a plan by the forces of Joe Biden to stage a coup to take over the government in connection with the November election. First of all, what was the basis of this claim? Great. So this is ahh concocted claim and the sort of colonel at the center of it was a project called the Transition Integrity Project, a group of about 100 academics and journalists and pollsters and former government officials and former campaign the staff staffers. They started meeting over the summer to kind of game out various scenarios for the November election, and so they were basically testing American democracy in the event that President Trump wins in the event that vice President Biden winds To see in various scenario is what could happen. And in the event, there's a contestant result in a long, nasty count. Yes, exactly especially in the event if there's a contestant result in litigation and other possibilities, and so in one of their several scenarios, Biden wins the popular vote but loses the Electoral College. And so in that hypothetical case they imagined the Democrats would get desperate. And they might consider encouraging California and the Pacific Northwest to threaten to secede in exchange for pressuring Republicans to expand the size of the Senate. So Rosa Brooks, who was one of the organizers of this project, She's a law professor at Georgetown. She published an essay where she mentioned this threat to succeed in one sentence in an essay in The Washington Post. On the next day, you see someone named Michael Anton's, a former national security adviser to President Trump. He has an article called The Coming CU Question. Mark and based on Rosa Brooks is characterization of what the transition integrity project was doing. He starts saying that Democrats are laying the groundwork for a revolution and then you see that article take off in extremist online communities. There is AH podcast maker named Dan Bongino, who's a big trump supporter. He makes videos about it. One of them has the tag. They are telling you what they are going to do exclamation point his videos pull in millions of views. Then you see the story. My great toe, a right wing website called Revolver News Revolver. News starts to spin up the idea that Norm Eisen, who participated in the transition Integrity project and is a longtime Democratic lawyer in Washington. That he's at the center of this supposed coup. And from there, Tucker Carlson feature someone talking about this concocted made up story on his show. And then you see it just go viral on social media and get picked up by lots of groups, including, like a county Republican organization in Oregon, So it is Perfect kind of story because it pulls in both traditional media in the form of Fox and also social media. And then you see President Trump get involved. He tweets in praise of Revolver news, and then he tweets quote the November 3rd election result may never be accurately determined, which is what some want. And that's a kind of typical dark, slightly vague, foreboding kind of warning from President Trump that further perpetuates this coup narrative. And then Trump later retreat. Someone talking about a coup with regard to Nancy Pelosi. So you see from this hypothetical project that was really meant to be a kind of academic exercise about the election. This whole sat of conspiracy theories on the right that get a lot of play in the media on social media, and then from the president

Parallax Little fancy term Parallax is something that it's the same fact pattern. You look at it from this angle. It looks like one thing. You'll get it from that angle. It looks like something else. So when they say we're going to use the military to drag trump out ofthis everybody says Bravo, You're protecting our democracy. When you were I say, Holy cow, They're going to use the military to Dr Trump out of office. They say you guys are crazy conspiracy theorists from the fever swamps, making things up. Same fact pattern. I'm quoting their words back to them when I said I'm a lunatic, and it isn't happening when they say it's a glorious defense of American democracy. I I see your story here. A za media story as well. And what? What I mean by that is you and I both know we've been around this game for a long time. That if this was a story where Barack Obama was running for reelection and a bunch of Republican luminaries, whoever they may be, call Rove, a bunch of formal Reagan advisers Ed Rollins and others. We're around war gaming in a project funded by the Koch brothers and one of the conclusions they came to was secession and the 82nd airborne. We'd be activating the guillotine. Tomorrow There'd be calls for treason charges the media would be openly humiliating them Call Roven. Others will be kicked off off TV. Of course, none of them have anything to do with any of this, But these guys you're talking about in this transition Integrity project, And if you could describe in your answer a little bit of who they are, and who's funding them as well. These air, not small timers talking about that. They're not in the media stories about how we're crazy for covering thes Democrat luminaries discussing this crap these air, very famous senior people like I said John Podesta was was one of the ones. There are a lot of these. You know these former Republicans who are there, so who's funding them? It's kind of murky. I got attacked for pointing out that George Soros is one of the funders. Nobody said you're wrong. In fact, one of the people attacking me said Well, yeah, actually, you're right. He is one of the funders, but it's just not right. You can't talk about George Soros. Again. The celebration Parallax If you're on the left, and you say George Soros is a champion of democracy and liberalism, because of all the money he gives. That's great. Somebody on the rights is why store stores giving money district Attorney's around the country who let rioters go without bail.

But he says he thinks that he's got support among the you know, enlisted soldiers and more junior people. There's no real way to know, right. I mean, I've seen these Poles.

I mean, I don't know what I don't know if I believe that I just well, despite it kind of hard to believe, and also, I'm not sure how much of liberal polling I trust. Well, the truth. Of course, Michael Anton is it's horrifying that we're even discussing what's gonna happen with the military Come around the election. So what can be done to prevent this chaos? We have very few days left. But what can we do in that time? I think we're going to get chaos. Unfortunately, because of this disastrous mail in voting scheme that's been foisted on the country that the attorney general talk about at length last Friday. I mean, look, keeping the pressure on and raising awareness is useful. So, for instance, because of this speculation, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs felt compelled to go out and say that the military will quote play no role. In the upcoming election. That's good. I hope that's a sign to all other members of the military that they should play no role in the upcoming election, and they should resist calls from anybody to get involved in a purely political process. More of that would help. If you know more direct signaling on, I would. I would also urge any current sitting or former officers who know people. Are at non officers to enlisted men two who know people in the military who are currently serving, you know, just quietly work your own networks and say, Listen, our institution the credibility of our institution, which we've all served in all of is really on the line here.

"Planet for you. Former Trump Advisor Michael Anton will join us and coming up to talk about the importance of this election. He, of course, is famous as the author of the Flight 93 election essay in 2016. I had some pretty significant with significant differences with that essay in 2016. I think it bears a lot more scrutiny actually. In 2020. However, we begin at this hour with the fact that the Poles it seems to be tightening in the states and widening nationally, which it shouldn't be a giant shock, actually, considering that in California and New York, everybody hates Trump. I mean, California and New York, the population centers of the United States in the big Cities. People despise Trump, but Their variety of polls there now showing Biden pretty significantly. Nationally. Now, the last Emerson Cole had biting up only to national. It seemed like the spread was coming down for President Trump. Now they're a couple of new polls. They're out showing Trump variously down like nine or 11 points. However, in the states, it seems like things are beginning to Titan and tighten fairly significantly. So if you look at the battleground states right now, what you see is that Trump is back up in Georgia. You see that Trump Is now up in one new poll in Ohio by something like five points in Minnesota, things remain fairly close. In fact, the latest poll from Minnesota had trump running neck and neck in Minnesota Resource is beginning to be poured into Minnesota. If you look at the polls in Pennsylvania, there's a poll today that is out that shows a Biden of just three points in Pennsylvania. Which has got to be disquieting. That pole was taken ending August 31st Okay, is currently September 2nd. So that is still not taking into account everything Kenosha related. That takes into account the conventions, but not everything Kenosha related. I would imagine. That as the as the days go on, and Joe Biden continues to make overtures to some of the most radical people in American life that is not going to redound to his benefit, which is why the campaign is in panic. And you wonder why exactly Joe Biden once Pennsylvania That's a that's a state. He should be winning pretty pretty easily Remember, Pennsylvania is originally his home state before he moved to Delaware and Pennsylvania is the state that he is constantly sighting is his blue collar background. That should be a state that he wins. The fact that he had a visit Pennsylvania is demonstrative of something not very good for Biden's campaign. Also Wisconsin has never I think right now, I would think that Wisconsin has to be trending pretty strongly read the latest poll from Wisconsin that I have seen there. Two Poles. One was from CNBC and a Democratic polling from called Change Research on buying up five in in Wisconsin. But There's another traffic our group pole from the same period when Trump up one. Right now. In the average, Biden was up 3.5. We don't have any holes in the last two weeks from Wisconsin. So right now, you got to be worried. If you're like, Look, you got the advantage still in all the polling data, but Shouldn't rest easy, considering that Hillary was winning all the States two and then proceeded to lose. So when Trump visited Kenosha that's made the Democrats very nervous. He visited the sites of various sites of destruction in Kenosha. This is something that Republicans and Democrats have done in office right? Whenever there's a disaster site. Republicans tend to the president of the United States, regardless of party will walk through the rubble to visit the site. We have this with with Barack Obama during Hurricane Sandy, We had this with George W. Bush during 9 11. The only one I remember that I thought was actually good was was Bush during 9 11, but From visits Kenosha to point out that there are left wingers burning cities to the ground, and local leaders praised Trump. I know this is not the stuff covered by the media. The media prefer to cover the fact that Trump said silly things about soup cans or something. But here are local leaders praising from for arriving on the scene..

And they'd be able among other things to talk on college. Campuses without being protested. Which is definitely an idea that would makes these people's lives better. Like, it's a real thing. I want I want to be precise in my phrasing. It's not that. They don't have ideas. It's that they don't have ideas about how to make the typical person's life better in concrete material way. Okay. That's more possessions. And in crucially, though, it's not that they don't have ideas that have concrete material implications repo appoint that. I always try to make this podcast is that there is nothing more powerful. There's no more powerful force in American politics than the absolute sincerity of Republican party politicians views on economic policy, and like that to me is the issue here. Like, they are all as elected officials. Right. They are relentlessly committed to a vision in which what you have to do is take the richest people in the country and make them richer, and that everything else has to bend behind that fixed point of analysis. Right. Because a lot of what happens in politics. Whether we want to say politics is downstream of culture or not like Paul. Ticks is downstream of tax policy, and like they have this tax policy, and it's not good for most people, but they don't want to change it. So they got to do something else. And to me, that's like the fulcrum on which all this turns like scrolling through the collected works have been Shapiro. And it just like, I don't know. I I wanna use a nice word for it. He's not talking about issues that have concrete material implications for the majority of people, right? And there's a reason for that. Right. There's like this kind of wurley gig that quality to it all that that to me is a sort of a scam. You know, it's like why can't you win in California? Look, why don't you try to like come up with something? Like, what is all this whining about it just seems like? I don't know genuinely baffling an income Hensel to me like in a way that like like, why would you write a book called brainwashed, Colin how universities indoctrinate America's youth published by world net daily books in may of two thousand four. But what is that? Like what what was it Michael Anton fight ninety three election about like did we crash the plane as America save now? Like does he do essays? Now that are like because we killed the hijackers like, it's okay. But they don't seem to think that Trump being an office has made it. Okay. And why isn't it? I think we're we're talking about a lot of different things here.
