No War Is the Best Trump Can Do
On The Gist, the NBA draft lottery. In the interview, Richard Clarke doesnâ€™t have security clearance anymore, so on his podcast he talks to a lot of people who still do. His 10 years as a White House official gave him the bug for asking questions to sharp experts on matters of life or deathâ€”otherwise known as national security. Clarke joins us to talk about the need to make a â€œfrenemyâ€ out of China, the vulnerability of Americaâ€™s power grid, and how president Trump could yet leave the title of â€œworst president everâ€ to George W. Bush. Clarke is the host of Future State and the author of the forthcoming The Fifth Domain: Defending Our Country, Our Companies, and Ourselves in the Age of Cyber Threats. In the Spiel, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Palestine and the Holocaust.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Democrats and Israel
In the weeks since theyâ€™ve taken office, two freshman Democrats â€” Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib â€” have been engulfed in controversy over their criticisms of Israel. We look at how, after decades of unwavering commitment to Israel, the Democratic Party is now dealing with charges of anti-Semitism. Guests: Sheryl Gay Stolberg, who covers Congress for The New York Times, and Jonathan Weisman, the deputy Washington editor of The Times.

We continue examining the diastrous fallout of the government shutdown and the toll itâ€™s taken on unpaid federal workers, national parks, and public safety. We debunk the myth that Trump did not understand what the shutdown would entail and argue that this is exactly what he and his camp have wanted: controlled chaos that allows him and other operatives to more easily strip the country down and sell it for parts. With Trump raising the prospect of a â€œnational emergency," we stand on the precipice of something weâ€™ve dreaded for a long time, and that in other settings has been how dictators consolidate power â€“ by fabricating a massive crisis and exploiting it with a show of force. We discuss how the urgent threats of climate change and technological surveillance culture make the rising authoritarianism of the present distinct from that of decades before. Gaslit Nation also endorses Rep Rashida Tlaibâ€™s move to â€œimpeach the motherfuckerâ€ and we lay out the reasons why: emoluments, obstruction of justice, and high crimes and misdemeanors among them. (And now, the House does not need to wait for Mueller to start the hearings.) We discuss how our generation of women is finally in Congress and how the wealthy white male media canâ€™t handle their truth. Finally we conclude with the latest on Ukraine-Russia tension and the historic significance for believers and nonbelievers alike of Constantinople granting the Ukrainian Orthodox Church independence from Moscow.
