"Truman himself later wrote. It was not intended to be cloak and dagger outfit. It was intended merely as a center for keeping the president informed on what was going on in the world. Now it's debatable as to whether or not harry truman's being honest here right like did is. Was that really your intention or did you just see what happened in wanted to distance yourself from it. That can be argued. But if truman's goal from the beginning was for it to be very different than what it became. He didn't really fight hard to stop it from a changing six months after the cia creation communists in czechoslovakia carried out what is often referred to as a constitutional coup now. The history here is complex but in brief at the end of world war. Two the czech communist party was super-popular due to the fact that they fought against the nazis and the fact that the ussr had liberated czechoslovakia from the nazis. Communism was pretty popular at the end of the war The party grew from about fifty thousand members in nineteen forty-five to well over a million by nineteen forty eight. It swept the nineteen forty six elections winning thirty eight percent of the vote which is still the best ever performance of a european communist party in a free election. Now since czechoslovakia was a parliamentary democracy. The communist didn't take complete power because they'd one they just were like the dominant bloc and government you know that's how parliament's work but they quickly alienated voters and fractured the broad left wing alliance. They'd been a part of you know understandable reasons once you take power. You're never as popular as you are when you're trying to get it. It became clear that the next set of elections were going to go worse for the communists and so they used their control of the police in a network of trade union militias to seize total power. This set off alarm bells across the west and lead to a sort of paranoia that other european communist parties were just biding their time until they could carry out the same kind of so. The cia used this as an excuse to start pouring money into operations aimed at countering other european communist parties namely in italy and france in italy. They funded a christian nationalist party that was seen as pro. Us and the recruited catholic officials to preach against communism. They drowned the nation in a wave of propaganda. Allen does was not yet a regular employee of the cia but he took a leave of absence from his lawyering to kind of pro bono. Help or ca efforts in italy because again. He missed the fun of being a spy. Now the fact that allen dulles traveled to italy to help the cia did not go unnoticed again. He's a bad spy. The boston globe ran an article with the headline dulles masterminds new cold war plan under secret agents so really bad it being a secret agent. I just. I can't emphasize this enough kind. Of the way that james bond catch his catchphrases him telling people his name. Yeah if you're if you're famous spy that's bad yet. He was a famous spy. Yeah he was a famous spy which you shouldn't be so at this stage of things. The cia as aid in italy will aid is a weird that what this you know the the shit the as doing it. Italy was entirely focused around propaganda and providing funds to sympathetic. Politicians are mostly focused but even at this early stage allen and his colleagues were discussing the possibility of organizing mass violence as a way to achieve their ends..

"And Brett. Kevin was ugly beer. Yeah so in my mind the the part of that that sticks out to me that is in my the the least controversial part as far as when when I say that I mean the part about which I see people having no leg or excuse to stand on is when after that he walked into that committee hearing and flipped out out on the Senate floor. I was done. Yes it to me. It wouldn't matter what he was accused of if that response yeah I don't see you as a jurist surest OUT THE DEMOCRATS ARE I. Don't Hodler's on it was a political haired revenge for ideal. I I work with children. Cavanaugh should not have behaved the way that children that I work with do on a daily basis is what happens when you live such privilege life that you have never heard the word no and it meant you know that actually meant you that anything to you've never been accountable for any of your actions in the entire life and then all of a sudden you know spotlight's on you and you're actually maybe be held accountable got flips out. Yeah well it's that and I just I am just done with it because it wasn't just like the joke on. SNL was I've written this. And I've run it by no one and we'll just see that's not what happened and right like VAT as a strategy was discussed and implemented. Because they knew that it would work and it did because outrage culture has now gone both ways and I don't think that it's a good way to change people's minds minds. I certainly understand people being outraged at outrageous things. I certainly feel outrage and I don't blame anyone I just I'm I'm very much. I'm very much done with people not having values which is basically what everyone else has said. He does go both ways. Because you remember how upset everyone thought about the the Gillette ad. Oh my God. Yeah the the Gillette Alette ad where they were basically saying like. Hey Baby. Don't be Dick's but it was sort of. You know we've always said like Oh boys will be boys and it's like a line nine of supposed- father's doing around two kids are fighting. It's like let's be better. What does being a man really mean you know? Don't do that I haven't really watched the commercial in ages but In like basically the message is hey. Don't use the fact that your guy to be your excuse. Serbian shitty person was that and maybe raise your sons differently. Yeah maybe raise your son to be good people. Yeah and I mean the the objection wasn't don't tell me how to raise my kid which would have been a much more sympathetic objection was done Zik. Masculinity doesn't exist it's like it's not toxic. That's what the man is out and I'm like no. We've we've officially veered whale of course. Hey we're we're talking about things that are not whatever raining you guys in myself so I am older check. Djeddai is a religion more Derek Exactly it's inbalance not in balance. You just said it was you misspoke therefore I win the argument so I was GONNA say no see. It's perfect. That's not a word. Yeah yeah cool so now. We've gone culture where we couldn't rain you in so we went off the tracks so that you would rain us. Ed Okay. Shall I read another story. Yes plus Save Kevin Pastor Robert Jeffress. Oh our favorite yes. Says Trump is Christian Warrior and Democrats Worship Pagan God Moloch who allowed for child sacrifice undone. What's the glad we save? Christianity is based on human sacrifice. who literally you eat his body? You have to know guys unless unless you wait until they're thirty then human sacrifices okay. They're also God. History has to Robert. Jeffers has warned that Christian in the US would be under under siege if the Democrats got into power and twenty twenty projection Jefferson heads the thirteen hundred member. Yes first. Baptist Dallas Church there's a vehement loyalist of president. Donald Trump. He told the conservative radio program. The Todd starnes show that trump has shown that he was a defender of Christians interests through his opposition to abortion and support of Israel so that standard Republican can stuff though yeah okay. That's a requirement you know last month. He was saying that Democrats were godless. Yeah there's a part of me that wants to say stop. Stop saying it's a Republican thing. Say It's a Christian nationals thing but because right now the Republican Party is having an identity crisis and and while I am not a member of what at least at one point in time was the Conservative Party of the United States. I would like it to be the Conservative Party of the United States. As opposed opposed to the Christian Nationalist Party Old School Paleo conservatism. When they were actually saying day Christians support the president does not because they are religious hypocrites or because they think he is perfect? They know he's not perfect. Just like none of us is perfect but they appreciate the strong religious stints he takes. Here's without doubt the most pro-life pro religious liberty pro Israel president we have ever had and they don't want to see his. This warrior removed from misplace of leadership in our country. There is a fear that if he that if the left ever regains control again. This country is finished. ashed he added pray. Jeffers said that Democrats were trying to impeach trump because they couldn't beat him at the ballot box. He also MONTROSS NACHO secretary. Nancy Pelosi for her call on Saturday for a peripheral approach to the process. He was little at the ballot currency. Run Yeah Eight Electoral College. I miss her call for prayer. Whatever she did? No I heard the sanctimonious Nancy Pelosi Choline for prayer for our country country. That reminds me of an arsonist pyromaniac with the mansion his hand about to set a building on fire saying pre- with me that the destruction I'm about to 'cause isn't too severe if Nancy Pelosi is severe about bringing this nation together. She will drop this impeachment effort. Let the American people decide from now. Oh at the From now at the ballot box this is just a continuation of you have no value. It's weight is Congress's job to do the impeachment proceeding. The American people don't vote at the ballot box about impeachment. Not that's not how this works. You know when we get past trump crisis cried his. This guy's going to end up as a guest host. Jim Bakker show. Oh yeah so I was gonNA say so never selling tribute tribulation sludge. I was GonNa say we meals. We shouldn't be mistaken into thinking that this is a problem that ends with the end of trump's presidency when a year not like there senator. There's a senator I forget his name but I'm looking for immediate gratification. At this point because four years I'm exhausted. It's for me it's not about gratification. is about a stemming the damage he's still has the legal authority of the president and his point which unbelie I mean everything everything but you have people like this that are piggy piggy backing off that power and explain. Oh the majority of I think it's a majority of his cabinet are openly evangelical Christian. Talk about the exact exactly not only talking about it but looking forward to it and doing whatever they can to expedite it that includes the support of Israel saying yeah they they believe the Messiah Prophecy. Yeah Yeah Tr- temple or end of the war. There's certain prophecies that need to be met that deal with with Israel before the coming of Christ. And that's that's pretty scary shit. Yeah you little asshole. The Israelis ended up getting slaughtered when that happens opens. which is it makes it kind of weird relationship that the Christian right has with you know supporting Israel? Did you know that when I was a kid we believe that the rapture would occur. Before all that and that at Armageddon we would be writing Jesus on white horses and swords and bullshit like that would you can believe it. That's my question is but did you get horseriding lessons. Nothing would be more embarrassing than writing. Jesus I just know the question. The question is would my horse have wings. My question would be doing at a saddle because I can't write can't write their bag. A high robe too because I think you have a white robe. What is it with the robes? I I don't WANNA come back. I would have yet to come has already have the armor of faith faith in your savior. Yeah that's called the force now. Okay let me.

"Communications. When confronted with the question of whether he has a problem with female voters. The president is fond of saying that he won women voters in two thousand sixteen the exit polls, however show that Trump lost women by thirteen points. He carried a narrow majority of white women, but the more we dig into those 2016 numbers and the results of twenty eighteen the less stable this support even from white women looks here to help us understand exactly what we mean. When we talk about the white women within Trump's base is Robert p Jones, he's the CEO of the public religion research institute, and the author of the book the end of white Christian America, the real break is between white evangelical Protestant women and kind of all other women. I mean that really is the big break there. It's quite remarkable. Actually. So for thinking about all the edges in here. Wait, non college women, and then the the divide within that is even not even jealous. And if we look at that. Break those non even Jellicoe women in that category. And they make about ten percent of voters nationally. So they'll be bigger in states that have a higher population. If we look at things, for example, in the midterm vote that group voted nearly six and ten for Democrats and the midterm vote. If you compare that to their white evangelical counterparts here seventy five percent voted for Republicans and talk about white women who have a college degree, but also identify as even Jellicoe, which is the bigger driver for them, -education or religion is a great question. And we actually have pretty good data that even Jellicoe identity tends to Trump gender and education. Yeah. So inside the evangelical world what has happened as this group again has shrunk right from being nearly quarter of the population just a decade ago down to only fifteen percent of the population. They've lost the pieces of that group that gave them more internal diversity of younger people. They've lost more liberal or moderate people. Democrats. So it's become a more homogeneous group. And so what that means is that all kinds of differences start falling out. The diploma divide inside of white. Evangelical Protestants is almost nowhere. Like in Mississippi, the midterm vote there, you could find no difference between whites with college education without it was really just race race and even Jellicoe identity all the way down the line generational divide. Start flattening out and our pre election survey for the midterm elections. For example, we've found no differences seventy two percent of older even Jellicoe seventy two percent of younger evangelical so they were going for the Republican candidate going into the the midterm election. So I think the difference is inside of that white evangelical community as become more homogeneous has really flattened down the other kinds of differences that we would typically see I think something that many. Folks struggled understand is how someone with a background and personality of Donald Trump can have as. The core of his base. The strongest most consistent group of support from evangelical Christians who at one point we called them values voters, the moral majority. Can you help us understand how those voter square that circle? Well, what happened? I think is described this as something of a shotgun marriage between Donald Trump and white evangelical Protestants, and he was not sort of the intended planned candidate for anyone writing moves a surprise even to Donald Trump. I think when he wanted Super Tuesday. I mean that was the real turning point. Because there you have the heavy raft of southern states and everything. Okay. We'll Ted Cruz going to this moment right to kind of come back. Get the momentum in the race. And Donald Trump kinda mop the floor with him from Michigan to Mississippi. And I think everyone was like, oh, actually there's something different going on here. And I think the real difference was that in many ways, Ted Cruz is campaign was promising some things around the edges. Rember lidge liberty and those kinds of things, but he really wasn't. I think challenging the entire shift of the country and Donald Trump came in and said, no, I'm going to give you back your country lives the way he talked that was much more powerful appeal than Ted Cruz who was really one of them the whole make America great last word, again, write that piece. And so I've just started dubbing them nostalgia voters right for values voters to nostalgia voters. And it was that promise not to just kind of work around the edges and concede the cultural changes, but the stand up and say, no, we're going to stop it. We're going to build a wall. We're going to restore power to the Christian churches. He said this over and over and even Jellicoe settings at the back end of the campaign. And I think it was that appeal to turn back the clock back to a time when white evangelical Protestants in particular had more cultural power more political power, you know, and and I think many progressives have underestimated the role that the obergefell decision legalizing marriage equality played. As a moment of panic really among Christian conservatives in the country that they had lost the country. So as a core if this is the president's core group of supporters, and he can get these folks motivated and turn them out are there another of them in twenty twenty. And then help us think about this to twenty twenty four and twenty twenty eight isn't enough to just be able to turn those voters out if you're not to use religious phrase converting people who may be aren't as supportive of the president to come out and vote for you. Well, it here I think it's really worth remembering how close this last election was people forget, you know, that it really came down to three states, and like eighty something thousand votes and three states. So that's important. And so, and I just think we are at a tipping point in the country. Right. So with a rainstorm could make a difference in election like that. What what we're seeing again is that white even Jellicoe Protestants have been able to maintain their presence. About a quarter of the voting population. Even as their population has begun to slide. If you're thinking about, you know, the an analysis of the American electorate in population in terms of kind of white evangelical Christians, or even all white Christians are best estimates are it'll be twenty twenty four before we actually reached the tipping point at the ballot box that we've already reached base a decade earlier, if we're talking about a tipping point now with the Republican party and women a realignment period on education religion race, which one of those things becomes the most salient going into this next election. I think when's the last time we saw a lot of elected officials in the middle of their terms. Switching party or or a election point switching party. And it was really in the wake of you know, what we haven't talked about as the great white switch, you know, of whites particularly in the south moving from being solid Democrats to being solid Republicans in really that was in the wake of a big. Cultural shift after the civil rights movement, and it was really all about whites being disgruntled as the Democratic Party became identified as the party of rights. And I think it's not an exaggeration as they were seeing something of that kind of seachange and the composition of the parties are sorting themselves, not only idiological ways, but they're sorting themselves in terms of race and religion as well. Right. So the Republican party ten years ago was eighty percent white and Christian today self identify Republicans seventy percent, white and Christians. So even with the demographic shift they still are seventy percent white and Christian the Democratic Party a decade ago was fifty percent white and Christian to the it's thirty percent white and Christmas. Now, we have the Republican party is more than twice as likely to be white and Christian than the Democratic Party. And I it falls along the lines of gender as well. It's kinda worldview shift here, the Democratic Party is coalescing around women's rights, LGBT, writes, racial, inequality and discrimination. Black lives matter movement, the metoo movement. I mean, all these things are happen. Being largely on the democratic side of politics. And we're getting these kind of partisan polarized reactions to that and the Republicans are digging in the problem is that those all things appeal highly to younger Americans, right? So it puts the Republican party. I think in in a tough place and the younger generations and the most diverse generation that we have. And so, you know, if these trends continue, we really are. I think in danger of having essentially a white Christian nationalist party and the party of everybody else. Forever. Jones. Thank you so much for coming in and talking to me, but beer.
