    A Conversation with ABC's Jon Karl About His Book "Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show"

    29:54

    Jon Karl's first interview with Donald Trump was 27 years ago. Looking back, he is surprised by how little Trump has changed. It's a striking observation when seen in light of the chaos and controversy of the final year of the Trump presidency. Karl's new book on that final year sheds new, often shocking light, not just on how Team Trump oversaw the mishandling of the COVID epidemic and later the cultivation of the Big Lie and an attempted coup against the United States government. It also, underscores the risks that a second Trump term could have brought with it...and might still bring. We have an in-depth conversation with Karl about the book, its revelations and his sense of whether or not Trump will be a viable candidate in 2024. Don't miss it.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/deepstateradio.

    The Deepening Crisis Along the Russia-Ukraine Border

    26:31

    The massive Russian troop build up along the border of Ukraine might be just posturing on the part of Russia's President Vladimir Putin designed to build support for him at home. Or it might be the prelude to a dangerously destabilizing invasion. Increasingly, intelligence reports are suggesting the latter. The options for the US and the West to stop Russia or to penalize it should it act are limited and as a consequence many experts are beginning to fear the worst may come to pass. We discuss with former Obama Administration Russia and Ukraine expert Evelyn Farkas and with Kori Schake of the American Enterprise Institute, Rosa Brooks of Georgetown University Law School and Ed Luce of the Financial Times. Also discussed: the upcoming Democracy Summit. Don't miss it.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/deepstateradio.

    The Worst Public Health Crisis in US History May Be About to Get Worse

    36:38

    We may be at another dangerous inflection point in the nearly two year long COVID pandemic. The first Omicron variant cases are appearing in the US. This new mutant version of the virus has many disturbing differences with prior iterations of COVID. President Biden has launched new steps to help contain a resurgence of the disease...but are they enough? Do we have a strategy? How will the anti-science, anti-vax, anti-mask campaign of the GOP impact this? Are new economic, social and political shocks likely to follow? We discuss these critical issues with Pulitzer Prize-winning science journalist Laurie Garrett and former Obama health policy coordinator Dr. Kavita Patel. Don't miss it.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/deepstateradio.

    Master of the Game: A conversation with Martin Indyk

    26:22

    Martin Indyk, distinguished fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, former Ambassador of the United States to Israel, and former U.S. special envoy for the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations has written a new book entitled "Master of the Game: Henry Kissinger and the Art of Middle East Diplomacy." In the book, Ambassador Indyk examines how Henry Kissinger worked to ameliorate conflict in the Middle East rather than seek to impose peace. An approach which, Ambassador Indyk asserts, proved to be largely successful. David Rothkopf and Ambassador Indyk explore Kissinger's policy decisions, the impact he had on the Middle East, and grapple with his legacy in this can't miss conversation.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/deepstateradio.

    Trump's Disastrous Decision to Get Out of the Iran Deal Has Left Us with Only Bad Options

    23:24

    Once upon a time, the Israeli government urged the US to get out of the Iran deal. The American president at the time, Donald Trump, obliged. Now, Israeli officials are calling the decision the worst in the past decade of Iran policy and their intel community is whispering to the US that Iran may be getting very close to the ability to produce nuclear weapons grade uranium. Meanwhile, negotiations with Iran are being resumed in Europe with very low expectations of success. What is the Biden Administration to do? We discuss their options with David Sanger of the New York Times, Rosa Brooks of Georgetown Law Center and Kori Schake of the American Enterprise Institute. Don't miss this timely episode.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/deepstateradio.

    Bannon, Rittenhouse, and Arbery: What this week's cases tell us about justice in America today

    26:50

    Steve Bannon was indicted for contempt of Congress but currently remains free awaiting trial. Kyle Rittenhouse stood trial in front of a judge who is barely trying to conceal his pro-defendant bias and now we await the jury's decision. Also this week, alleged assailant Travis McMichael took the stand in an effort to defend his killing of Amaud Arbery. To understand this busy week, David Rothkopf and Kavita Patel do a deep dive with Harry Litman, former U.S. Attorney, Deputy Assistant Attorney General, and host of the Talking Feds podcast. Is Merrick Garland being methodical or slow? Will America's proliferation of guns lead to more claims of self-defense? Is the judicial branch able to deliver justice?

    Is Putin Making a Terrible Miscalculation?

    29:27

    Russian troops are building up along the Ukraine border. Russia's close ally Belarus has provoked a crisis on its European borders by directing refugee flows at its neighbors. Tensions are rising. Are the Russians counting on the US and our NATO allies to be reluctant to respond strongly? Do they not realize that the Biden team is much more inclined toward a tough stance toward Russia than the last two U.S. administrations? Will they go too far? We discuss with former US Ambassador to NATO and CEO of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs Ivo Daalder, Brookings Institution European scholar Constanze Stelzenmuller and Kori Schake of the American Enterprise Institute.

    Is America Too Dysfunctional to Remain a Superpower?

    27:10

    Gerald Seib wrote in a recent column in the Wall Street Journal that the greatest threat to American national security is our own divisions. However, that isn't the only existential threat that the United States faces. Russia and China are testing the United States's cyber defenses and Climate Changes continues to be a central focus as COP26 moves forward in Glasgow. Can America have a strong foreign policy if there are such drastic changes between administrations? How is the Biden administration pushing back against adversaries in cyberspace? Are statements coming out of COP26 just "blah blah blah"? David Rothkopf discusses these and other issues with Rosa Brooks of Georgetown University, David Sanger of the New York Times, and Kori Schake of the American Enterprise Institute.
