Today let’s start with the January 6th hearings. In terms of execution – the committee has presented a compelling narrative and evidence that seems very damning for Trump and many of those in his orbit. But has it moved the ball? Do most Americans and specifically Republicans, care?

Have the hearings, coupled with the Supreme Court decisions been enough to stem the expected wave of Republican gains in the midterms?

Looking to 2024 – do most Democrats even want Biden to run again?

Finally, we’ve talked about 2019 and the beginning of 2020 as being in the year(s) of the protest. But discontent around the word is rising again. So will 2022 be the year of the (larger) protest? 

Thanks for tuning in – we’ll see you next week.

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the best and most relevant podcast of recent weeks. Briefly, John seems to have a firm grasp of the seismometer measuring the impact of the January 6th investigation. Republican experts including Frank Luntz are watching the shockwaves even more closely and bemoaning the Trump effect. At the same time, Jeremy hit the proverbial nail on the proverbial head – Joe Biden moves from weakness to weakness. With the world transfixed by Biden’s fist-bump with MBS after the president promised a sober meeting with the Saudi royal and the devastating announcement from President Manchin that he will support neither funding for climate action nor tax increases for the wealthy, the president has finally been forced to pledge himself to “executive action.” And, Jeremy brought the chaos into focus with the observation that there is global unrest – a rising tide of tremors caused by the telluric forces hitting the tectonic plates of the information age and creating nightmares for the tacticians of the status quo. Great work in your new studio. Can’t wait til next Friday.
