"Deliver the biggest below to working class living standards for generation. That's talk off eight percent being lost from gross domestic products. If Britain leaves the European Union with no deal, I know deal is currently agreed. I mean, so that could well happen. And now the good fight with Yasser monk. About a week ago. Only Applebaum road very compelling cover story for the Atlantic code the case form, peach mint in it. He makes three basic arguments for why we should impeach Donald Trump. The first is immoral case. I fully agree with that case. We don't need to go back to it. The second is beleaguered case Yoni, essentially argues that you don't have to have broken any obvious laws in order to be removed from office. It is enough that you have consistently attacked a liberal democracy in a way that is concerning. I can't evaluate legal argument. I'm not a lawyer. But it seemed quite persuasive to me as well. The third argument that union made was strategic. He said, but impeaching Trump would have all kinds of good consequences. It would make it harder for Trump to control the now, it would distract the White House so much that it would become much more difficult for him to actually change the country in ways he is trying to at the moment. And it might even turn public opinion against well. It's on this most important strategic ground that I disagree with union that is inspired me to write a response in my column here on slate called the case against impeaching Trump. Two particular strategic concerns. The drew me to that conclusion. The first is about twenty twenty elections. I don't think anybody can quite predict how impeachment would play out. I didn't think any of us exactly know, what it would look like, but very real risk that Trump was a master Trolla after all would come out strengthened. So is it in our interest to roll the dice that depends on your baseline since I think it's quite likely, but Democrats will be able to get Trump out of office in twenty twenty since Trump's approval ratings are very low and have consistently been low since Democrats have just won a big victory in mid-term since the have all kinds of candidates who might make for quite compelling competitive to him in between two twenty election. I think that rolling the dice on a move better. Completely up end. Vallejo of land is not in the interest of Trump's opponents at the moment..

"It is ironic that the same kinds of people who will often criticize the western academic curriculum as eurocentric or the narratives we tell ourselves as eurocentric often engage in profoundly eurocentric, America Centric, storytelling in terms of the great injustices of history. And now the good fight with Yasser monk. Welcome to the podcast that such ideas, policies and strategies that can beat a four-time populist like Donald Trump over the next few years and the next forty I try to avoid listening to Donald Trump when I can. But when Trump decided to address the whole nation about the shutdown and those fears that he might pronounce national emergency and claim extra powers. I Ford that I have to June. My impression from his speech was mixed. It's remarkable to see him in this controlled setting because he actually loses a lot of his charisma some of that freewheeling nature of the big rallies. He holds gives him an ability to connect with his audience, which are Ford was lacking. In this three video address. He also was fear mongering about immigrants in a way that was often very close to racism, and I still believe but most Americans do not embrace that. But at the same time, I was also struck by how powerful that co populist message is when it is Lee scripted when Trump actually follows the things that his advisors have written out for him. I don't think these twelve minutes ago to make a huge difference in his fate. On his dining proposed. But I did think that if benighted states had a populist leader who fearmongers while making a moral case for things like the wall who escaped those minorities, but without the most cut tunic -ly bigoted sentences and sentiments somebody who could consistently pretend to care about the fate of America and Americans rather than Donald Trump and the Trump family he would now be a good ten points more popular than Donald Trump. And a populist who was a good ten points more popular than Donald Trump would have a much bigger ability to actually subvert political system and undermine the rule of no. So on hold this speech left me disgusted with Benicio of Trump's political appeal. It left me happy about the fact that the kind of we got was Donald Trump, and and strategic in many ways self sabotaging for the Toledo rather than somebody as smart in this careful, essay Victorian. But it also made me quite worried about what would happen this country. If populism would ever be represented by a strategic charismatic careful figure..

And now the good fight with Yasser monk. Welcome to podcast that such as the ideas, policies and strategies that can be to four-time populace line tunnel. Trump of the next four years and an X forty. This is the last podcast of the year. And I want to look ahead for a moment to twenty nineteen. Best a lot of elections in which populists are likely to continue to rise. The one of the people have been talking about the most for good reason is elections for European parliament coming up in spring, but many of us in Argentina in Belgium infant, we might see populist parties coming to real strengths. But the other thing that's going on moment is that we see ING how difficult it is for any government in age of social media in the age of economic stagnation for ordinary citizens to keep the hold on power. We've seen that in the midterms in United States we've seen it a couple of days ago in India where the quite scary ruling party BJP of Narendra moody, suffered a string of big defeats in important states like Rajasthan. And so I think that a second story of two thousand nineteen will be to see well the populace manage to. Rick the game sufficiently to stay in power whether might lose power in India where there's an incredibly important election coming up this coming year in Indonesia, where populist government is being put to test in Poland where the position probably has the last big chance to win against blue and Justice Madonna's slightly different way in Greece was series as I are reelection. So as always I like to say, I'm not a pessimistic optimistic. The important thing is not to be defeatist in two thousand nineteen vogue, plenty of scary moments. But also be plenty of opportunities for citizens to come out fight without of liberal democracy in show that having experienced populace pool looks like they want them out of..

But unless you have some real border between United Kingdom and the rest of the European Union. It is hard to see how Britain could exit the single market. It is also really hard to see how Trump can keep getting away with it. How it is. That he pays porn stars. And apparently was trying to build a Trump Tower in Moscow will into his presidential run. And yet he doesn't seem to have to pay for price flood. Now, he is simple. Low of politics them suggesting when fundamentals or point in one direction, and yet we expected outcome doesn't happen.

I think at some point than them into will come perhaps after twenty twenty Papp's even before when the stuff, but didn't seem to matter Sunday will. So keep faith believe on the mental.

"The bill. Even for those Republicans for whom racism is not Donald Trump's appeal racism was not a breaking point either. It's not a disqualifier to support him. They think that it's perhaps a minor foible. That's not very important. Whereas to me, that's a dealbreaker. And now the good fight with Yasser monk. Welcome to the podcast that touches the ideas, policies and strategies, but can beat a photon populist like Donald Trump over the next few years and the next forty. A lot of the time. I know my little introductory spiel can be a little bit pessimistic or a little bit depressing pointing to important events in the world, like the election of post narrow in Brazil. Well, today, Finally, I have something upbeat and optimistic to say the midterm elections in the United States where huge success normally populist, governments do quite well reports for I five ten years but van office that was not true for Donald Trump in his Republican party in between eighteen midterms. They were soundly defeated in a referendum on Donald Trump, and there are seven really positive lessons that we can take from that. And I want to run through them very quickly right now. The first is simply to update our causing model of what is happening in the world for the last two years, we've seen polls show and Donald Trump to be very unpopular, but we couldn't quite trust them because in two thousand sixteen they had seemingly misled as well the mid Tom's millions of votes counted across the nation show us, the polls will ride overlong Donald Trump really is disliked by majority of Americans. And that surely is good news in itself. It also shows that he's not really the face of America. He won in two thousand sixteen in good part because he ran against another candidate who was very unpopular. But most Americans do not like Donald Trump do not like what he stands for. And that is very good piece of news about our country. The third point is perhaps the most controversial it's but the Senate elections way huge success. Yes. Yes. Republicans Edita though to to a column that is true. But it's only true because for Senate map hugely favored them with twenty six out of thirty free seats being ones for Democrats had to defend. In the popular vote. Democrats were up by seven percentage point invest Senate. It repeated the same performance they had on past Tuesday. They would clearly take the Senate in twenty twenty. Four. That can showed that the midwest not lost to the Democratic Party. In two thousand sixteen would have been reasonable to fear that states like Michigan Pap states like Pennsylvania would forever be lost to the Democratic Party. Just as in Europe, the vote of white working class kept trending towards power populace, more and more. But actually, the midterms brought huge successes to Democrats in states from Minnesota to Pennsylvania from Kansas to Wisconsin. And that means Democrats have two different ways of getting towards a majority in electoral college in twenty twenty I from the sunbelt states like our Zona off the midwestern states, like Pennsylvania or Michigan who of course, through combination of that is really reassuring..

"Bill. We have the fake in the whole island Acton toll sokoll tradition. We've made it the facts are just out there and that in a fair fight though win, but they're not out there. They have to be produced, and they have to be pushed into the fight if they're gonna have a chance. And now the good fight with Yasser monk. Welcome to the podcast that such as the ideas, policies and strategies, but can Beato photon populace like Donald Trump for the next four years and an X forty. About ten days ago. I'm gonna Merckel announced that she would step down as the leader of a question Democratic Union this coming December and not seek reelection. As Germany's Chancellor in twenty twenty one. This is a seminal moment in Germany's postwar history Levin exception of that brand of commodity Adna of hemmitt cool Merckel has shaped her country the most proposal period, and it is difficult. Not to have a lot of admirations. She made it to very top despite being triple outside a woman in a mostly Mayland of contrivance party Protestant in potty traditionally dominated by Catholics and somebody from countries east who had grown up on a communist rule until the age of thirty five. She also clearly has a steadfast commitment to some of the prince. Tipple's but have died at the Federal Republic since its founding should he believes in the rule of law and democracy and in European project, and yet I feel that I'm gonna Merckel will be remembered ravenous kindly by history than most now believe and the reason for that is that she is not visually leader, not somebody who's able to guide her country for rhetoric and as a result, she has failed to confront the free. Biggest crises, but Germany and European continent has faced in blast twelve years. I when you're a crisis ruptured it exposed to fundamental construction floor in the euro, you cannot have a currency union without a political union and some people wanted to move to want to put it I was Ford need to fro weak countries. Like Greaves out of the euro in order to make it manageable. Well, I'm gonna Merckel didn't do either one Lovie other. Instead, she was kept giving Greece and other some new ping countries just enough money to tide them over but not enough money to fry and not enough political reforms to actually fix the underlying problems as a result after ten years of significant suffering in Greece in some of us have in European countries. The fundamental laws remained the same ready to be exposed when a public government takes over in Italy. The next economic crisis hits Secondly, the refugee crisis its origins. I little bit was settlement people think in with some of twenty fifteen Merckel was frequently criticized for not responding quickly after phobic attack and condemning it for telling an asylum seeker teenager on life TV that she could not how. Stay in the country. So when lots of refugees were coming in and some of twenty fifteen and there's no clearly options for how to keep people who ready neural out of German soil Merckel, did she usually did which is to run after public opinion when it had seemed to swing and favor of refugees. As soon as she did vet opinion. Swung back and Merckel ebb. The pragmatist followed in its path she may deals with reason Turkey to make sure that refugees no longer could get to Johnny. But because she never publicly explained course of action because she never told Germans that some of twenty fifteen would not be repeated under her watch because she was unwilling to speak openly about some of the real challenges. But the influx of refugees had cost it made it easy for riot to claim that she wanted to replace the German population or that she was blind to some of the challenges, and as a result V if d has become the first power party since nineteen forty five to establish itself as a. Fixture of German political system. Third, and perhaps most importantly Merckel has done virtually nothing to deal with a rise of a four-time populism around the world, and especially in central Europe a few years ago, it might still have been possible to build a coalition to ensure that the us stop subsidising, Victoria ban with its funds as he turned his country into an autocracy. It may even have been possible to start proceedings to expel hungry from the opinion. Mocha didn't push for any of that..

And now the good fight with Yasser monk. Welcome to the podcast but touches v ideas, policies and strategies that can be devoted on populist, like Donald Trump over the next four years. And the next forty. Normally, I try to say something interesting and original in this little opening spiel, I know privilege of having so many of you into this and I try to do my best to add something to a day today. I'm not going to do that. I'm going to say something but is obvious to order few that best repeating none Velez, populist governments and parties and movements actually staying power. I don't time on average. They managed to undermine the most basic rules norms of liberal democracy to make the playing field on even to make it harder and harder for your position to succeed. And one of the best predictors of whether they are successful that is whether or not the opposition managed to retain throughout that tenure in power, some kind of counterbalance, whether they control if. Few institutions in the country that can stop over time populists from dismantling infections and other things. We haven't had that for the last two years, but we have the chance to reestablish that a few weeks from now. And that's why these midterm elections are so crucial. If Democrats managed to win back the house, it's not going to allow them to put through the favorite public policies. It's not even going to allow them to completely make a stop to, for example, Donald Trump's attacks on independent infotainment agencies that had will give him a veto power of the most dangerous forms of legislation. It will allow them to investigate misdoings by the Trump administration, especially if that you're no longer be possible in independent branches like special counsel, Robert Mueller's investigation. In short, it will make it much more likely, but Democrats can hold the line until American voters have chance to oust Donald Trump from this in twenty twenty. So take a little moment to make sure you though, to take a moment to tell your friends and family to vote, perhaps take a little moment to get behind a telephone and make Kohl's for some of those campaigns in swing district. Some of those swing Senate races and much the left but Iraq. And I do like him quite a bit. Don't do it in Texas. Everybody is pining divest ten race do it in some of those districts, some of Senate races which have been covered much less and whether marginal phone cool or even the marginal donation dollar can make a much bigger difference. And off PSA end of captain obvious back to a great exploratory in the conversation, the kind of thing that makes this podcast..

"What is unique about the United States as I had your Monica power is that we voluntarily limit our freedom of action in order to get others to voluntarily following a set of rules that we think are majorly beneficial. Now the good fight with Yasser monk. Welcome to the podcast, but such ideas, policies and strategies, but can be to four time populists like Donald Trump the next four years. And next forty. I am a skeptic about a lot of media criticism. If you think that the New York Times as voice of white supremacy, I don't know what you have left to describe Donald Trump Stephen Miller. So I don't like bashing for media. I'm very careful in choosing my words and yet to have to say that an article published recently in the times of London left me flabbergasted on Twitter at teased Trump Putin. Undetected are unpalatable demagogues in many ways, but at least they get things done right, clear fogies. And in fact, that really is what you argued filled with random broadside against Brock Obama. She says. People like Trump don't just mouth? Yes, we can. They prove it. We could do more of that ambition here. It is the old bromide that Mussolini and Hitler at least make the trains run on time. No little bit more intellectually sophisticated been bat and does once again drove home to me how deeply some of our elites, not just in politics, but also in the media also in business as still failing in understanding mistakes. Office situation, just no excuse for publishing this kind of dress shame on you times London. But now it's a real treat fed. Corey. Shocker is joining us on the podcast Corey, and this is a bit of a mouthful is currently the deputy director general of International Institute for strategic studies. She was at Stanford Hoover Institution before she was the deputy director of policy planning at the State Department in two thousand, and she is the co editor with one with would Jim Mattis of a book called warriors in citizens, American views of our military. So that could be few people better place in Corey, to make sense for us of the damage that Trump is doing to transatlantic relations and why it is that we should care about transatlantic relations in the first place. Why does that we should care about things like NATO, at all, we had a great wide ranging discussion trying to make sense of some of these things. And I hope you'll. Enjoy it. Well, the focus words is a great joy to be with you. My friend. We're recording this in the middle of NATO summit yet. So it was not gonna hassle few weeks. So by the time bed or if you give is everything may have changed and we're not going to go into liberal order, may have been collapsed. May have been. I mean, just this morning, Donald Trump was castigates jug ni over breakfast and immediately posted a video fit on Twitter, but I wanna get away from the details and pulled back a little bit in order to understand what the transatlantic lines has done. Walden in detective liberal democracies house left. It is. And what we can do to restore it, what occasions of the conferences are. So how would roller off that lock think it's easy to us to shocked flabbergasted by with Trump is doing, but if you don't actually think has to be enough about why is this is what road. So what does it translate relationship being? What is this day to accomplish? Wise ago we need. I love that framing of the conversation. Then one thing I will say in President Trump's defense is that his political genius is asking. I order questions that people like you and me heaven conveyed accessible enough answers to the broad general public often enough in recent years I am because the president's not wrong that it seems crazy that Germany's spans less than two percent of its gross domestic product to defend. And it's country and castigates us for our choices about defense spending versus social welfare spending and then expects us to protect them. What would it goes further? Having job.

"On host countries really undergone systemic major overhauls it's usually after war after revolution after a really major economic crisis web everybody is so impressed with failure the old system that they're willing to try something very different now the good fight with yasser monk welcome to the podcast that such as we ideas policies and strategies that can be to fourtime populist like donald trump over the next four years and the next forty i want to revisit the debate we had a couple of weeks ago when donald trump decided to bomb an outfield in syria you know there's something about the news biz for something about be up oped biz that makes for strong opinions you want to go to your readers with a clear point of view i myself find that when a ride my column i sometimes come off you know more clear headed to at least less honesty confused about the world as i perhaps amann real world but on a topic like what to do about syria i just don't understand how stark the opinions power on either side of a divide on one side you have people saying anything other than bombings syria trying to intervene that the wall and was nuclear path out of it when is not obvious hugh underground is a great liberal democratic force is an evil person and i just don't understand certainty and on the other side of the divide you have people saying you know we obviously shouldn't intervene anybody who wants to intervene is a warmonger a terrible imperialist and so we should just let people die modern force a key international norm on ensuring with children and cast as a result of war and i just don't understand that either it seems to me that it is incredibly complicated to know what to do any course of action is likely to have many victims answer my main impression of a conflict is that we should pay more heed to the mall ambivalence to the gray on ray from people in either side of the debate have been doing.
