Foreign Policy: Crash Course Government and Politics #50
Today Craig finishes up our series on U.S. Government and Politics by talking about both the least and most important aspect of government: foreign policy. Foreign policy is important because it has the potential to affect the largest number of people, but at the same time, it tends to play a minimal role in our perception of the government (unless we’re at war). Foreign policy addresses diplomacy, security, human rights, economics, and the environment at a global scale, and we’re going to talk about how our government has approached each of these policies in the past and which it tends to hold most important. As with all things political, the decisions made in fulfilling these policies can be pretty controversial, especially when considering that the President often has the last word in these issues. We hope this series has helped you better understand the way the U.S. government works and hopefully encouraged you to participate in the political process - here or wherever you may live. Thank you so much for watching!

How Donald Trump thinks about foreign policy
Trump actually has a philosophy on foreign policy, and its terrifying. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Donald Trump’s coziness with Vladimir Putin, casual talk of taking Iraq’s oil and abandoning NATO, and muddled messaging on whether he'd deploy American troops to battle ISIS makes it easy to assume that the GOP nominee's foreign policy is a jumbled mishmash of ideas lacking any coherent philosophy. That couldn't be more wrong. In fact, a close look at Trump’s public comments leads to a very different conclusion: Trump has a distinct worldview that knits together many of his specific proposals.

5 Facts You Must Accept to Write About Foreign Policy in 2014
Bi-partisan war hawk Robert Kagan has written a truly ridiculous article in the Wall Street Journal, comparing the world scene today to the 1930s. In response we have decided to lay out some new ground rules for those who hope to be taken seriously while commenting on foreign policy. Kagan Article: http://online.wsj.com/articles/robert-kagan-why-the-u-s-wants-to-avoid-conflict-1409942201 Videos on NATO's creation of the crisis in Ukraine... http://youtu.be/HiBWmhTSrkU?list=UU49HGm2XU_KFINcAoLu1OjA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9z9jRybHGw&index=31&list=UU49HGm2XU_KFINcAoLu1OjA The Eurosceptic parties certainly performed impressively in May's European elections. But it was not quite the victory that has been portrayed. If you examine the five disastrous years since the 2009 elections, it becomes clear that the populist parties actually did quite poorly.

A Century of Ideas: One Hundred Years of Democracy and Foreign Policy
The United States was founded on the principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and for decades, support for democracy around the world has been a central tenet of American foreign policy.

Hoover Institution Senior Fellows Condoleezza Rice, Niall Ferguson, and Stephen Krasner discuss the changing role of democracy building in America’s foreign policy over the past century. This discussion is the first of speaker series "A Century of Ideas for a Free Society." For more information on the series and related upcoming events, visit: https://hvr.co/2HK3C6W

US foreign policy under the next presidency
Come November 2016, the United States will elect its 45th President. However, despite the authority that comes with leading the world’s most powerful nation, the next President will not only inherit an array of complex challenges to national security, but also the raft of often underestimated domestic constraints on the making of American foreign policy. In this public seminar recorded at ANU on Monday the 8th of August 2016, Richard Fontaine provides his views on how either a Democratic or Republican administration will tackle the foreign policy challenges of the post-Obama United States. Drawing not only on his over a decade’s experience in US national security and foreign policy making, Mr Fontaine also considers the work of his own organisation, the Center for a New American Security. Richard Fontaine is the President of the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) and the inaugural Alliance 21 Fellow at the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney. He served as a Senior Advisor and Senior Fellow at CNAS from 2009 until 2012 and previously as foreign policy advisor to Senator John McCain for more than five years. Mr Fontaine has also worked at the State Department, the National Security Council and on the staff of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. A native of New Orleans, Mr Fontaine graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in International Relations from Tulane University. He also holds a M.A. in International Affairs from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, and he attended Oxford University. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and has been an adjunct professor in the Security Studies Program at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. He also served as the chairman of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on the United States.

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard ─ Build, Don't Bomb: A New American Foreign Policy
As a veteran, Congresswoman Gabbard’s experience has profoundly shaped her as a person and her approach to American foreign policy. She will discuss the need for a military that is ready and capable of protecting our nation’s security, but should not be supporting counterproductive, interventionist wars that cost countless lives and trillions of American taxpayer dollars. Congresswoman Gabbard will discuss how these savings can be used to reinvest in our country’s future. Congresswoman Gabbard will be joined by Watson Senior Fellow Stephen Kinzer for further discussion. A Q&A session will follow. Tulsi Gabbard was elected to the Hawaii State Legislature in 2002 when she was just 21 years old, becoming the youngest person ever elected in the state. A year later, she joined the Hawai‘i Army National Guard. Tulsi served two tours of duty in the Middle East, and she continues her service as a Major in the Army National Guard. Tulsi’s 2005 deployment was a 12-month tour at Logistical Support Area Anaconda in Iraq, where she served in a field medical unit as a specialist with a 29th Support Battalion medical company. She was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal at the end of this tour. In between her two tours, Tulsi served in the U.S. Senate as a legislative aide to Senator Daniel Akaka (D-HI), and graduated from the Accelerated Officer Candidate School at the Alabama Military Academy, where she was the first woman to finish as the distinguished honor graduate in the Academy's 50-year history. Tulsi was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant and continued to work for Senator Akaka until 2009, when she again voluntarily deployed with her unit to the Middle East. In 2010, Tulsi was elected to the Honolulu City Council. Tulsi was elected in 2012 to the United States House of Representatives, serving Hawaii’s 2nd District. She is one of the first two female combat veterans to ever serve in the U.S. Congress, and also its first Hindu member. Now in her fourth term in Congress, Tulsi serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the House Financial Services Committee.

US foreign policy in the 2020 presidential race, and where to after Trump?
As rising powers, non-state actors and new technologies create uncertainty and increased competition in international affairs, America is heading towards a pivotal presidential election. President Donald Trump leads an administration that many see as questioning orthodoxies including America’s approach to alliances and diplomacy, at the same time as it pursues intensified competition with China, and renews its focus on the Indo-Pacific. In this public lecture, former Hillary Clinton foreign policy adviser Ms Laura Rosenberger will consider the role that foreign policy and national security is likely to play in the upcoming 2020 presidential race, examine key issues likely to inform aspiring candidates’ platforms and emerging trend-lines that will shape US foreign policy into the next decade.

Stephen Kinzer: US Foreign Policy and Interventionism
Dr. Stephen Kinzer discusses U.S. foreign policy and interventionism and whether it is the most destabilizing force in the world today. He discusses which US election candidate would be worst in terms of increasing war tensions and also covers the legacy of Muhammad Ali's anti-war posture and "American exceptionalism" which is a key factor in support of US interventionism. *Support/Donate to Geopolitics & Empire: Patreon https://www.patreon.com/empiregeopolitics PayPal https://www.paypal.me/GeopoliticsAndEmpire Bitcoin http://geopoliticsandempire.com/bitcoin-donate Stephen Kinzer Websites http://stephenkinzer.com https://twitter.com/stephenkinzer http://watson.brown.edu/people/visiting/kinzer http://www.amazon.com/Stephen-Kinzer/e/B001IGOJOS/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1465396272&sr=8-1 About Stephen Kinzer Stephen Kinzer is an award-winning foreign correspondent who has covered more than 50 countries on five continents. His articles and books have led the Washington Post to place him “among the best in popular foreign policy storytelling.” Kinzer’s most recent book is “The Brothers: John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles, and Their Secret World War.” The novelist John le Carré called it “a secret history, enriched and calmly retold; a shocking account of the misuse of American corporate, political and media power; a shaming reflection on the moral manners of post imperial Europe; and an essential allegory for our own times.” Kinzer’s previous book was “Reset: Iran, Turkey, and America’s Future.” “Stephen Kinzer is a journalist of a certain cheeky fearlessness and exquisite timing,” The Huffington Post said in its review. “This book is a bold exercise in reimagining the United States’ big links in the Middle East.” In 2006 Kinzer published “Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq.” It recounts the 14 times the United States has overthrown foreign governments. Kinzer seeks to explain why these interventions were carried out and what their long-term effects have been. He is also the author of “All the Shah’s Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror.” It tells how the CIA overthrew Iran’s nationalist government in 1953. Kinzer spent more than 20 years working for the New York Times, most of it as a foreign correspondent. His foreign postings placed him at the center of historic events and, at times, in the line of fire. While covering world events, he has been shot at, jailed, beaten by police, tear-gassed and bombed from the air. Before joining the New York Times, Kinzer was Latin America correspondent for the Boston Globe. He is now a visiting fellow at the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University, where he teaches international relations. He contributes to The Guardian and the New York Review of Books, and writes a world affairs column for The Boston Globe.

American Foreign Policy in the Age of Donald Trump: Multipolarism and "America First"
The first full lecture video in my American Foreign Policy series focuses on Donald Trump's "America First" policy, which was first introduced at his Inauguration Day speech in 2017, and expanded in a Wall Street Journal article that May by H.R. McMaster and Gary D. Cohn. I look at the criticism and apprehension many American foreign policy analysts see as Trump's departure from a number of long-standing international commitments and alliances the US has been in for decades. I also examine how a more self-interested approach to foreign policy risks undermining America's image and reputation by its international partners. But I also note that "America First" is happening in an age of American international decline to a point where the world seems to be definitively moving towards a multipolar system whereby the United States is one of a number of world powers, but has to share the stage with countries like China, Russia, Iran., Germany, and India. Is "America First" a strategic new way of thinking in a world where other powers are putting their self-interest first as well? Or is it the last gasp of America's global superpower status that, instead of repairing relations and strengthening America's image, only works to further undermine it?

In a recent interview, journalist Robert Young Pelton discussed how the media focus is on Trump while government actions are being carried out. Pelton in agreement with Noam Chomsky about this. Pelton explains that keeping eyes on Trump is an intentional strategy. Well, I’ll say that the United States foreign policy would still be of meddling in the Middle East but there is influence by some lobbying our government which can make those policies even worse for everyone except those unconcerned about human rights violations and whose priorities are things like corporate profits.

History of China’s Foreign Relations with John Garver
When the People’s Republic of China was established in 1949, China was in a state of disarray. Decades of occupation and civil war had left the country fractured, famished, and impoverished. The new nation embarked on an ambitious effort to overhaul its economic and political systems. While its domestic agenda was the priority for the Communist Party of China, China had, of course, to develop a foreign policy, particularly to deal with the world’s capitalist countries in the midst of the Cold War. With memories of the “century of humiliation” fresh in Chinese people’s minds, countering inroads of Western bourgeois liberalism was at the top of the international agenda during the early years of the PRC. As the Cold War evolved, however, so, too, did China’s foreign policy concerns. Following Stalin’s death, China’s leadership grew increasingly skeptical of the Soviet Union, its erstwhile “big brother” and ally, and the intentions of its new Premier, Nikita Khrushchev. The Sino-Soviet split exposed what author and scholar John W. Garver considers the real force shaping the PRC’s foreign policy: regime survival. While many political scientists have analyzed China’s approach to the split through a realist lens, focusing on national interest, Dr. Garver argues that de-Stalinization in the Soviet Union threatened the ideological foundation of the Chinese communist regime. A leading scholar of Chinese foreign policy, John Garver has written an authoritative study of the PRC’s foreign relations in China’s Quest: History of the Foreign Relations of the People’s Republic of China. He argues that domestic politics and regime survival have consistently served as the drivers of China’s foreign policy. Dr. Garver navigated this dynamic history, and analyzed China’s current foreign policy initiatives, with the National Committee on April 14, 2016 in New York City. John W. Garver is emeritus professor of political science in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He served for many years on the editorial boards of China Quarterly, the Journal of Contemporary China, Issues and Studies, and Asian Security. His research focuses primarily on China’s foreign relations, a topic on which he has published eleven books and over a hundred journal articles and book chapters. He has concentrated on China and the Middle East, China and India, and China and Taiwan, among other parts of the world. His books include: China and Iran: Ancient Partners in a Post-Imperial World (2006); The Protracted Contest: China-Indian Rivalry in the Twentieth Century (2001); Face Off: China, the United States, and Taiwan’s Democratization (1997); The Sino-American Alliance: Nationalist China and US Cold War Strategy in Asia (1997), The Foreign Relations of the People’s Republic of China (1993), and China’s Decision for Rapprochement with the United States (1982). Dr. Garver received his doctorate in political science from the University of Colorado, and bachelor’s degrees in political science and psychology from Oklahoma State University. He is a member of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations.

Free is nice, but if you can afford to pay a little every month, it really helps us to continue producing this content. In which John Green teaches you about the United States as it was in the 1990s. You'll remember from last week that the old-school Republican George H.W. Bush had lost the 1992 presidential election to a young upstart Democrat from Arkansas named Bill Clinton. Clinton was a bit of a dark horse candidate, having survived a sex scandal during the election, but a third party run by Ross Perot split the vote, and Clinton was inaugurated in 1993. John will teach you about Clinton's foreign policy agenda, which included NATO action in the Balkans and the Oslo Accords between Israel and the PLO. He'll also cover some of the domestic successes and failures of the Clinton years, including the failed attempt at healthcare reform, the pretty terrible record on GLBTQ issues, Welfare reform, which got mixed reviews, and the happier issues like the huge improvements in the economy. Also computers. Cheap, effective, readily available computers came along in the 1990s and they kind of changed the world, culminating in this video, which is the end of the internet. Until next week.

The Israel Lobby in the US - VPRO documentary - 2007
For many years now the American foreign policy has been characterised by the strong tie between the United States and Israel. Does the United States in fact keep Israel on its feet? And how long will it continue to do so? In 2006 the American political scientists John Mearsheimer and Steve Walt published the controversial article 'The Israel Lobby and US foreign policy'. In it they state that it is not, or no longer, expedient for the US to support and protect present-day Israel. The documentary sheds light on both parties involved in the discussion: those who wish to maintain the strong tie between the US and Israel, and those who were critical of it and not infrequently became 'victims' of the lobby. The question arises to what extend the pro-Israel lobby ultimately determines the military and political importance of Israel itself. With political scientist John Mearsheimer, neocon Richard Perle, lobby organization AIPAC, televangelist John Hagee, historian Tony Judt, Human Rights Watch director Kenneth Roth, colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, Democrat Earl Hilliard, Israeli peace negotiator Daniel Levy and investigative journalist Michael Massing.

In 2015, the far-right Law and Justice party, or PiS, won both the presidential election and a slim parliamentary majority. Since then, they’ve been working to cement their power by firing judges, purging the military and civil service, and cracking down on protesters and the media. All of this has put the country on a collision course with the European Union that could threaten Europe’s hard-won peace and prosperity following centuries of conflict. To truly understand the international conflicts and trends shaping our world you need a big-picture view. Video journalists Sam Ellis and Liz Scheltens use maps to tell the story and chart their effects on foreign policy.

Presidential Power: Crash Course Government and Politics #11
This week Craig looks at the expressed powers of the President of the United States - that is the ones you can find in the Constitution. From appointing judges and granting pardons, to vetoing laws and acting as the nation’s chief diplomat on foreign policy, the Commander in Chief is a pretty powerful person, but actually not as powerful as you might think. The Constitution also limits presidential powers to maintain balance among the three branches of government. Next week we'll talk about the president's powers NOT mentioned in the Constitution - implied powers.
