"And so i guess you know aside from just yes please. For the love of god past the voting rights protections. Act the other point. I want to make in regards to what you said. Is that chris murphy. The senator from connecticut Agrees with you because you are correct in that. If we're going to examine the war in afghanistan you need to look at all twenty years of it. You need to look at twenty years of corruption. Twenty years of lies twenty years of false promises. Twenty years of mistakes murphy. Says and i'm quoting him here. We should be doing a comprehensive review of how we got to this moment. You cannot tell the story of what happened around. The airport in kabul without reviewing the decisions made over the last twenty years and so i think that this is absolutely right and i think nine eleven and its immediate aftermath in the decisions made their awesome needs to be called into questions. As we've pointed out before there were people who saw this coming. You know there are people like barbara lee who is treated as a pariah in the aftermath of nine eleven because she warned of the loss of our civil liberties and she warned of forever. She warned that we would be in this conflict and other conflicts longtime. She is absolutely right. So yes we need a really comprehensive review and i think they need to extend that to an overview of financial crime of the merging between white collar crime and organized crime they need to look at treason and foreign influence operations that have affected our sovereignty and our national security over again the last twenty years and more really the last thirty years since the collapse of the ussr in regard to russia and further back in regard to other countries. And it's this refusal to do this. The refusal to be honest transparent and extremely thorough that has led to so many bad and hasty decisions being made today and so much confusing rhetoric. Everyone would rather have a horse race. Everyone would rather just purely live in the now. Stripped of historical context. Everyone wants to choose a side. They want to choose democrat or republican. We're in reality. It is both of that yankees. Yes they they're all to blame all presidents in administrations. Who were involved in this war were to blame are some to blame more than others. I mean yes obviously. The bush administration is foremost blame because they got us into this situation. And you know biden was left with responsibility of taking us out of the situation and did not do a good job although as i said at least They're improving but you know this. I don't know this sort of like. I said it's like voluntary selective amnesia. It's a curse of our time and it's not a new thing. It's fascinating to me when i read journalism By kind of muckraking reporters of the eighties and nineties. Who are just amazed at the utter refusal people to confront say the long tentacles of iran contra Of you know nine eleven in the lead up to it and how that went by so many intelligence agencies without being prevented things along that line and they just. They don't wanna do it. They don't wanna dig that deep because again it shows complicity it shows corruption it shows weakness it shows frailty at everyone wants to be exceptional. Everybody wants to have american exceptionalism. But american exceptionalism is what literally digs our grave. You know there's no shame in having humility and in looking at your mistakes and examining how they happened in saying. We need to never do that again. Like all those illusions. I was taught as he kid. Listening to boomer pundits prattle on about how we've learned from vietnam and we've learned from watergate. We need to actually make that true. Because all we've seen is this. You know celebrity apprentice of rotating felons being put into one administration after another making the same mistakes over and over again to the detriment of everyone to the detriment of americans to the detriment of afghans to the detriment of ordinary russians who live under putin ordinary people in any country that is struggling with corruption and repression which at this point is nearly every country in the world. I guess you know new zealand gets a pass or something like we are all in that sinking ship together. As i said in the way out i think is through an honest entrance parent not narrative because that sounds so contrived presentation of evidence about how he got to this place so that we could never make the stakes again. All right on that note. You should tell everyone the good news that you have told me that you discovered which i do not know so in suspense here that congress did something good so i wanna say. I've been wanting to work in roman history and is episode. And you gave me the opportunity when it comes to american exceptionalism. That's what rome suffered with. Roman exceptionalism back in zero eight ad. The romans killed their generals. Delib show because of a series of campaigns. That didn't go so well even though he was a very strong general. That always a really good job before things were getting very tough. The heat was rising and he had a couple of bad runs nothing. They couldn't have reverse with time but they just had this overreaction to that and had him him his son murdered and then what happened just a few short years later. Rome was sacked because there was no general stilleto to protect them. That's what historians argue that. The sacking of rome was haste. Unlikely because of the stupid murder that was committed largely based on pride and so. I think it's a good thing for people to recognize that when you have empires that are so clearly struggling on the global stage. Not to let your pride get in the way is just self-defeating and it leads to reactionaries rising up and just making the situation far worse and we are seeing that with people having overreactions to afghanistan. Yes it's going to be a humanitarian crisis there on the ground for some time to common. It's going to be gut wrenching and what we can. All do is listened to afghan voices that you can find on the ground lift up aids groups groups that are giving refuge to The immigrants that are coming over and doing what they can on the ground there and one thing to keep in mind. The taliban is in trouble. I mean you have a country that is collapsing. You have banks that are literally going to run out of money. You can say yeah. The talibans is supported by the opium trade. They've got russia. China china and russia. Do not want afghanistan which is right in their neighborhood which is very close by to them to become a terrorist hotbed..

"We're recapping all of that yet again since people need to stay grounded in the big picture especially over the coming days as a media breathlessly follows the countdown to the end of august. All that comes after what's done is done any investigations. The republicans went into afghanistan must include. What trump did to set us up for all of this. Like trump was the best ally the taliban could hope for could the biden administration have waited a year to have stronger footing in terms of streamlining the visa program. I before pulling out of afghanistan spending time getting people out before drawing troops in providing air coverage. Yes would've would've come of course at the sacrifice of us soldiers especially since there is credible reporting that said. The taliban was creating casualties. Because russia put bounties on the heads of us soldiers for the taliban to kill it worked there casualties created because of that. It's a mess. Afghanistan was always going to be a mess. Please have empathy for reporters on the ground. Who are showing their humanity covering humanitarian crisis. The criticism i've seen richard angle of nbc news. Labeling him antibiotics or whatever for his criticism what was objectively speaking rushed withdrawal. Even cable by several people at the state department made that claim to the top brass at st richard angle reminds me of ukrainian journalists. String start of russia's invasion. Who are being snickered at by perl. Clutching american and british journalists stuck to their desks and western capitals far removed from the lived experience of senior hometown fall under occupation to a cruel sadistic terrorist regime let humans be humans especially in times of tragedy were not sports fans rooting for our favorite teams. What so many journalists on the ground go through leads to ptsd and since they are journalists who like to think of themselves as above the story not part of the story it can be hard for them to seek treatment or consider themselves quote unquote worthy of treatment given all the suffering. They've witnessed so let people have human reactions to human tragedy and try to put yourself in their shoes when they're literally in the middle of a humanitarian crisis. Hold space for them and don't let their point of view be a threat to your own security. Richard angles reporting from afghanistan. Isn't going to lose the twenty twenty. Two midterms for the democrats. Not passing voting rights legislation. The for the people act. And the john lewis voting rights act will lose the midterms for the democrats. That's what we all need to be focused on right now. In the end biden will be seen likely as having done the right thing of finally removing the us math ghanistan and he will also retain fair criticism for the withdrawal looking back on a show from earlier this year. I was right. When i said biden's born policy would be different. From obama's obama did the surge sending more and more troops fight and got us the hell out obama would trash talk putin and rain in germany and the rest of the eu to pass a meaningful sanctions against putin biden has shown putin the respect he so desperately craves and has let germany and the eu move forward with nordstrom to an economic weapon. That's happening as we speak. It's already been been used as a weapon now. The gives russia leverage over the eu. I always knew biden's foreign policy would be different from obama's but not in this way. He was always talking tough to ukraine about cleaning up its corruption and ukraine has been moving on that front in recent months. So that's good. There's hope that ukraine can be a model for the post-soviet block which is what russia's afraid of of course but it would be nice to see joe biden's foreign policy team stand up to the axes of autocrats and they can do that by pushing for much. Needed domestic reforms like breaking up big attack. Curbing disinformation on social media. Radio cable news bypassing a new twenty-first-century version of fairness doctrine to meet our needs today for real fair and balanced information coverage and get dark money especially foreign money out of our politics and for the love of god protect voting rights so biden and his teams both foreign and domestic can step up from this challenging time by leaving monumental legislation that secures our democracy. Our democracy will have a fighting chance without these sorely needed reforms. It's pre surrender. I do have faith. They're going to fight it out. Biden appointed some strong anti monopoly progressives to take on big tech no matter what one thinks. Abidance biden's afghanistan decision. One can argue that. It was a bold move biden. Has it in him to do. What's hard and make tough decisions. And for that. I give him the benefit of the doubt if he squanders the time he has left. He's leaving his grandchildren. And the rest of us trapped with dystopia in future. I mean the main point that. I wanna make yours. I know you're optimistic. A you're gonna talk about some of the You know initiatives being put forth in congress but all of that potential progress means nothing unless voting rights are assured and assured for twenty twenty two. Not just twenty twenty four ensured for the upcoming election which may cede control of the house to the republicans. And i agree with you. That i don't think at this point that afghanistan will be the defining issue other. God only knows because this could go in a number of very bad directions especially because they have not Fully evacuated americans from afghanistan. And i could easily see disastrous looming. I'm not even gonna get into that. Just something actually happens but this could have been you know a a spotless wonderful mission instead of the you know really catastrophic move. It was initially. They've obviously improved throughout the week. credit to them for that but even if it had been that if we lose voting rights if we lose the most basic and fundamental way to bring representatives in to bring policies that protect us. Then that's it and this is saw on. Voting rights is not new at all You know we've done many episodes on it. Many interviews with experts like ari berman and adam gentle sin about the filibuster. Like this has been a problem. They have known as coming for a long time. They still have not made progress on it. They still have not passed the most basic laws to protect bring back the rights. That were eliminated with the partial of repeal of the vr. A by the supreme court in two thousand thirteen are. They're so obsessed with afghanistan that people they've forgotten that such little progress has been made. And there's all this talk right now about you know the loss of american honor the loss of american pride in regard to us losing the war in afghanistan. And you know. Honestly i fi- i find this kind of talk bizarre. Because i'm just like well. Where was this honor. When were these winning words. Like what american is alive today to remember us winning big war like the only one in my lifetime was the brief gulf war of nineteen ninety nineteen ninety one which was accompanied by all these kind of lectures from boomers about how they learned lessons from the quagmire of vietnam and we would never experience another vietnam style war just as they learn the lessons of watergate and we would never experienced that level of explicit government corruption. That needs you to impeach the president. The president would obviously not commit such acts and would honorably remove those south. It's very funny to me when i think about this now. 'cause hearing all this bullshit when i was like you know twelve thirteen years. Old at the fucking. Anybody is talking about i knew about around contract. Knew that reagan's administration was corrupt. I didn't know the depth of anti got an older because the media behaves in the same way it does. Now it's all this kind of ask kissing and bullshitting covering their backs and not getting into the depths of the crisis..

"That's friends without the are best all right so this is being reported today by cnbc. I was just talking about. Russia is already using gas as a weapon to pressure the european union. It's already happening. This is from cnbc. Russia is pumping a lot less natural gas to europe. All of a sudden and is not clear. Why actually it's perfectly clear. Why the key points from the article state european piped natural gas supply from russia has slowed in recent weeks raising concerns about the potential causes behind the drop and its implications for global gas markets. It comes shortly after german. Chancellor angela merkel sought to ease long-running concerns about the nearly completed nord stream. Two pipeline saying further sanctions may be imposed if moscow used gas quote as a weapon. What is russia dune response to this. It uses gas as a weapon by slowing down a supply to europe which will drive up the price for consumers so literally ukrainians are screaming about saying you need to block this nordstrom to project and even european officials have pointed out that go. This whole project goes against the climate crisis. Goals of the european union and yet merckel has allowed it to move forward anyway. Biden's white house did slap on the sanctions but didn't really put teeth into its efforts to stop this and what everyone has been fearing would happen is happening right now. Because past behavior determines future behavior. Russia has a history of leveraging. Its gas turning off the tap to ukraine in the data winter to try to pressure. Ukraine hurt ukraine. Now it's doing it to the european union. It's not funny. I'm just laughing because this is also predictable and just blood money man. We need more public servants in power across the european union and across the united states in order to stand up to this because how much money is worth destroying your future on this planet. Your children's future. How much money is worth spreading dystopia around the world. I don't think any amount of money is worth that but unfortunately too many people in positions of power in the european union and north america do and. That's the key issue here. He yes agree. I me that. I don't even know what to say at this point. It's one of these situations where you wish people could see the forest for the trees be also wish that people could see like the forest is on fire. You can't even you know we had the chance. We had a chance to turn this around. There are multiple opportunities to educate the public about all these interconnected dangers there. Multiple opportunities to change our policies into something meaningful both in terms of enforcing accountability for crime and illicit activity but also moving us forward moving us towards a green economy. Moving us towards the kind of i mean they're not even solutions. They're mostly just mitigations in a ongoing climate catastrophe to try to make our future a little better a little safer to make our children and our grandchildren's future possible and that's one of these things that i'm watching and i'm seeing all these kind of interconnected layers in terms of attitudes You know from this administration certainly also from the gop more so from the gop toward the safety of children toward the safety of the vulnerable and basically toward the future. You know how you treat your countries children or how you treat children you know in other countries as well as sign of your investment in the future and what kind of life you're envisioning and what kind of value you place on that life and you know. Obviously there's a great day to record an episode because you know my children are back in public school. My youngest child is too young shoe. Get the vaccine and like every parent. I know you know and i yet immunity but you feel good about the situation and it doesn't matter how they feel about vaccines or masks or whatever it's like. Everyone loves their children. Everyone is very worried about the pandemic. Everyone is looking for consistent in cohen advice. And you know those of us who do want to get vaccines for our kids or looking for that date you know. When is it going to be available. And it's not just that there are things that we don't know. The virus mutates it forms variants. The situation does change. It's the utter of interest in providing the most rudimentary information to parents or even considering this group this group of under twelve year old children as part of american life. You know they'll talk about their pandemic of the unvaccinated. They'll raise actually. I'm going to interrupt you right there. Because i have a two year old and i'm desperate to get her vaccinated tub and following this closely and i've listened to dr foggy is interview last night. Npr and i'm following this. I'm i'm counting down. I'm talking to other parents. They see in the neighborhood The research is in progress. I think it's going to be the next couple months when we might see an emergency approval this fall for children Eleven to five. Possibly but when it when it's my turn on it's might kids turned up my hopefully com a couple months later so i i don't feel that way at all. I actually feel the information. I've been getting as is clear is going to take the time it needs to take. In the meantime we have to take precautions in order to avoid the worst and just social distance. And just be careful. Yes i agree with you. Certainly on the precautions the information. We have been getting some of it. Is we get it from the school system. Because they're trying to figure everything out it's just been All over the map. But it's more just like the the lack of kind of outreach or empathy you know. A lot of people thought that in biden bassist trump in terms of just the expression of basic human empathy because obviously as trump is the bars very very low here like we had a sociopath narcissist sadist in the white house so anything obviously is going to be better than that biden is certainly much better than that. But there're just a lot of you know naturally fear ridden parents in which includes me out there wondering about things getting conflicting information. And i don't mean the kind of information like let's inject ourselves with horse treatments or whatever the hell are doing with the vaccines i mean. Things like Ken now that the fda has approved the vaccine an older child get it from their pediatrician off. Brown like there are all these basic kind of scientific medical questions. And there's this sort of tennessee were all expected to be like amateur epidemiologist which is not a good thing to be you know. I think we've seen the result of everybody trying to be amateur epidemiologists in this country and in other countries and it has not gone well and it's just You know it's the flavor of our time we literally have In terms of you know other failures in the government like the fbi's failure to bring accountability for the capital attacks. For example. there's a group called sedition hunters says managed identify purely through you know publicly distributed information because of course those attacks were live streamed and spelled out on social media and shown on television. They were able to identify the perpetrators and notify the fbi and be like. Hey man you know you might wanna like arrest this dude. Who was you know threatening to assassinate a bunch of people and bolted into the capital. And of course the fbi is like what are you talking about. We can't find any coordination we'll get into that later but it's just It's the abdication of not just responsibility. But the obligation to say like if they feel like they're in over their head if they feel like they don't have clear answers it's the advocation of transparency to the general public. That i think is In some senses artifact of inheriting the trump crisis like they inherited an absolute shit storm that showed how frail and corrupt and broken our institutions are and the biden administration is full of institutionalists. They're not to want to admit this even if they weren't the ones who broke it. And i think they might have put some chips in it during the obama era. But you know. Trump's people came in with a sledgehammer in decimated. Everything they're still not going to want to admit how bad off we are like that is the tenor of the biden. Administration is basically. everything's cool. Take off your mask. 'cause we got it under control and sometimes they do have under control or at least they're capable of learning from their mistakes so equivalency between them and and trump but my god i would rather just have the straightforward bad news..

"navalny" Discussed on Gaslit Nation with Andrea Chalupa and Sarah Kendzior

"Weapons as a matter of national security. Now is the time to get. Tough on the kremlin ukraine style. Or going to be stuck under republican. One party rule and putin will be gleeful. Yeah absolutely i. It's interesting that we're now at the thirty year. Mark of the collapse of the soviet union and the the independence of not just ukraine But a number of states That were part of the soviet union. And its you know. Received is kind of little fanfare in a very different from the twenty fifth anniversary of the twentieth anniversary. And i think obviously it's because we're dealing with a global plague with unparalleled rise in this century of autocracy with the basically the reversion of a lot of these newly independent states or satellite states From the worst pact countries like hungary and poland into more repressive forms of government Both depressing to look at and it's also being subsumed by all these greater global crises but it is I think essential to look at it. It's essential to revisit the question of who won the cold war. Because you've answered that question with what you were just saying. Corruption won the cold war. Mafia states won the cold war both in the former. Ussr and in the west. You know what we've seen over the last thirty years. Is that this division. That i think people like to make between oligarchs and plutocrats between You know the business world. The lissette or legal business world and the illicit world of the mafia and the underground that boundary was blurred long ago. And i think digital media and companies like facebook Or data mining companies like cambridge analytica and its successors brought that home. Even more and of course culminated in the twenty sixteen elections Both here with trump but also in the uk with brexit and. It's amazing to me that we are now five years after that point that point which we knew in real time you know marked the end unless there is going to be transparency unless there is going to be accountability and unless there is going to be an accurate historical narrative of how we got to this point to begin with and they're kind of was initially in two thousand sixteen there were things like the panama. There were emphasizing global corruption. offshore accounts. how that collides. With dictatorship how that collides with the loss of you know freedom of speech freedom of expression in all of these other basic rights. That had been suppressed in that people were so thrilled. Had finally come to the former soviet union and come to eastern europe and therefore eliminating the need for You know some east dot outlets but it's really grim. And i think everything that you just described with merckel and putin and nord stream two highlights that you know. They've decided to treat off all of our freedoms all of our progress all of our rights. We are increasingly all in the same sinking boat. And it's the literal sinking boat in the era of climate change climate catastrophe in the era of unparalleled fires and floods. And so you know this is the kind of stuff we talk about on a regular basis on gasoline nation. Severa if you're new to the show welcome. Welcome to the glitz I laid out in my book hiding in plain sight but it's distressing to see kind of the refusal to look at the big picture here. Because trump coming into power led to for example hollow the kovic pandemic was handled. It leads you how the twenty twenty election was handled in the very predictable. Very disastrous attempted coup the aftermath of that has led to other lack of accountability for the organizers of that attempted coup who were the same people who were involved in illicit activity during the two thousand sixteen election. People like roger stone or michael. Flynn or steve bannon. We're living in an era of utter lack of accountability and feel t to hostile. Foreign that is less accurately defined as a matter of you know state versus state than as a collaboration between the worst most corrupt and most hostile operators within those states. And again this is not a buried history. This is something we observed. In real time we documented it in real time and yet we are constantly confronted with the congress fainting selective amnesia over and over again feigning shock to avoid accountability because that allows them to make these kind of dirty deals Like they're doing with nord stream two like they're doing with basically overlooking extreme human rights violations. Not just from putin's russia but from saudi arabia from israel from other countries. You know that are involved in what we've described as a transnational criminal network very elite one a very high brow one when that wraps stealth in respectability politics but nonetheless is transnational organized crime. It is bizarre to me. That we had a kremlin acid inhabiting the white house for four years. And we all know this. This may sound like the controversial and contentious claim. It probably didn't sound like once a year ago or two years ago or three years ago or whenever you still had your last flickering faith in robert muller our institutions and institutionalists failed us. They helped the enemy. They helped suppress information. They helped make people not recognize what was immediately in front of that trump placating a foreign power prostrating himself to a foreign leader asking foreign leaders like putin for you know for example hillary clinton's emails at a press conference in two thousand sixteen having decade long histories with the russian mafia with russian oligarchs in his campaign. Stop of course did as well and ended up being indicted like this is not a mysterious crime in that sense What's mysterious about. It is the refusal to confront it or just kind of consider what are the ramifications of this for our national security now what are the ramifications for our foreign policy. It's just weird. It's not in the self interest of america were of the biden administration to look the other way. It never has been you know. The president of the united states with a foreign asset and the next administration came in and shrugged it off. They were putting a nail in a coffin with a vampire still breathing in grinning inside. That's the juncture that we're at right now and i know that there are all these other horrific crises that kind of you know. Prompt people that this desire to put this all in the past. But you can't because the crises that were experiencing now whether the pandemic or climate catastrophes or global corruption or the rise of autocracy are all linked to that election result in the administration that followed and the deals that were made under the auspices of that administration. So we need accurate history. We need to be looking back. And if you know the thirty year anniversary of the fall of the soviet union Somewhat illusory fall certainly in terms of surveillance mafia state corruption if that prompt some reflection then good but i fear it will. This episode of gasoline nation is sponsored by best fiends. A puzzle game. You can play on your phone. We're way past due for less.

"Someone impersonating a spokesman for imprisoned russian opposition figure alexander navalny conducted zoom meetings with european parliament members. The sessions featured.

The incident is of course troubling for coming at a time when navalny is imprisoned and on a life threatening hunger strike and it's worth noting that relatively senior political officials were taken in by the scam but to place it in perspective.

They chanted freedom to novella and let the doctors in the increasing repression of those protesters and the threat of rebranding of the opposition as extremists come. As president vladimir putin's approval numbers continued to sink. The world wondered last week what he would do with. The hundred thousand troops massed at the border with ukraine. In the end they were pulled back. that's rattling and the poll. Numbers are all intimately connected to the threat. Now post to the group led by mr putin's most effective critic alexei navalny. He's decided to end his son destroyed because he felt the russian authorities have sufficiently satisfied. His demand demand was to be allowed access to independent medical. Care arkady ostrovsky bizarre russia editor. What they have done is they took him into a civilian hospital. He was examined by non prison doctors. There's non prison. Doctors then passed on all the results of his tests to navarre on his own physicians. His own doctors told him that if he didn't stop his hunger strike now they would soon have nobody to treat a all and in his instagram post which he pass through his lawyers he also said he was very moved by all those people who declared hunger strike in solidarity with him.

Donald Trump Didn't Have to Be Irrelevant

"Trump is irrelevant. He gives interviews that. Don't make headlines. He sends out statements that become the butt of jokes. sure he's got the era of congressional republicans but no member of the gop has the influence or the audience to be trump's messenger. Which makes him irrelevant. But this segment isn't meant to mock him. It's meant to mourn what actually could have been because donald trump didn't have to be irrelevant. Seventy four million americans voted for him in two thousand twenty like him or not. His voice matters to some people he could've spoke out in real honest ways on important issues without fear of polls and push back that guided so much of his value system in the white house. It is ironic that on the one year anniversary of trump wondering whether people could inject bleach into themselves to kill the corona virus. He told the new york post quote. I'm all in favor of the vaccine strongly. Strongly recommend it. Because it's a real life saver quote. Now he says this where was he. Months ago when the vaccine i came out while he was still president and his words could have mattered. It was even clear by his refusal to help distribute the vaccines. He wanted credit for pushing companies to develop vaccines but he didn't seem to care if they ever got into people's arms and new york and dc centric republicans. The main new york post audience. Really the people who need to hear this message. Could this be a stunt to make himself look better or any positive side effect that is just that of side effect trump could have pushed americans to get vaccinated sooner. Could've told americans that vaccines are safe. But he's so preoccupied with attacking. Lebron james and mitch mcconnell that he missed his moment to save lives now should know. Trump's message is a good one the vaccine is a lifesaver and maybe skeptics will take his advice. Which would be great for all of us. But it's likely too little too late because he's irrelevant and let's not just limit. The vaccine. trump could be relevant if he spoke to other issues affecting his base for structure. Biden's two point. Two trillion dollar infrastructure plan would benefit large swaths of trump's base. It would provide jobs to rural and suburban communities. It would repair critical infrastructure. It would expand broadband access and trump has good reason to support the biden plan because he actually pitched a two trillion dollar infrastructure plan just last year but that's just not trump. of course he's not advocating for anything that might give joe biden a win even if it helps his base because it doesn't help him so he condemns the plan and that's been trump's problem since he came down that infamous escalator at trump tower to declare his candidacy for president. Trump doesn't want to help others if it doesn't help him he doesn't push vaccines because many in his base are against them. He doesn't push it infrastructure plan because it's a democratic plant and he's still out going on fox to claim that he won the election and putin who's currently killing alexei navalny in prison is an okay guy so perhaps he should be irrelevant but has claimed political power is the paralysis that elected republicans have in breaking away from him against what the trump base is against. Even if it's not rooted in fact you can't be for policies that a democrat would support. You have to be cool with anti-democratic impulses like voter suppression. That's where the republican party is. Right now cova conspiracies. Defending the capital riot has overblown or committed by antifa. Blm thinking republican election officials in states that correctly. Certified the vote for joe. Biden are traders and frantically pushing legislation to make sure that never happens again but when this is what the party is about. How else could they possibly win

It showcased Vladimir Putin's $1.3 Billion Palace complex in southern Russia. Navalny accuses Putin's forces of poisoning him with the nerve agent Nova Chalk. In August, He was taken to Germany, where doctors are credited with saving his life. We speak with international journalist Dana Lewis tonight he's host of the podcast backstory with Dana Lewis. He served his Moscow correspondent for NBC News and Moscow bureau chief of Fox News. First question. Are these protest? In Russia different than the previous ones. Dimitri I don't think we've ever seen anything like that. Certainly not the breads of them in 11 time zones in every single city. You can imagine. It's very cold. I mean, minus 60 Celsius, and I think that what has changed and I thought a lot about this because I've been covering Russia for a long time. These protests are really against President Putin and up until now, there's been, You know, a lot of dissatisfaction in Russia about the economy and About pension payments and about different issues. But these are targeting the president himself. And after 20 years, you know, Putin in general has always deferred. A lot of this in blamed other people. But in the case of this corruption, video and Alexei Navalny and he owns it, and people are blaming him directly. Most of these protests have been pretty peaceful to begin with. And then after the sentencing of Alexei Navalny this week, I mean, I would say that the tactics of the police were suffocating the numbers of police on the street. I mean, I've never seen that many people in Moscow that many police Oman as they're called on the streets. Chasing down anybody that they saw. That may have been a protester. How much of a threat are these protests to Vladimir Putin? You say they're all about him this time. I mean, he is, I think plunging and popularity now. There have been some polls, especially with youth. And Putin is not the 80% man that he was years ago. You know, he may be down in 20% and 30% with some of the people. There is a growing anger, and I think that this trial was extremely important. I mean, this was a kangaroo court. But it was a show trial when the Valley was put on trial this week, and he called Putin out. I mean, it's never happened before. This is how it worked. They send one to J. Failed to intimidate million's, he said. On the Nova char chemical attack, he said, using the FSB, the federal security Service, Putin attempted to commit murder. I'm not the only one Many know this already and many others will, and this is what is driving the thieving little man in the bunker. Crazy that's unprecedented in Russia for that to be directed towards President Putin. It's incredible, brave thing for Navalny to say. Unfortunately, I don't think he's ever going to get out of prison for a very, very long time, because now they're bringing more fraud charges against him. So in addition to the 2.5 years, this preposterous, you know, charged that they've given him for violating his probation when he was in a coma in Germany.

"This is problems learn. Maurizi three down, Eh? I It's 6 35. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noel King. And I'm Steve Inskeep. It is abruptly a dramatic moment for democracy. Somewhere other than the United States as we are reporting elsewhere, Myanmar's military staged a military coup using election fraud is their pretext and in Russia. Many people spent the weekend demanding the release of opposition leader Alexei Navalny. Human rights activists say more than 5000 people were arrested nationwide. Molly. You'll recall was arrested in January after returning from Germany, where he had been recovering from a poison attack that he blames on the Kremlin. NPR's Lucian Kim is in Moscow and was at the protest in the Russian capital. Hey there, Lucy in Morning, Steve. What did you see? Well yesterday, the police didn't take any chances, and they simply sealed off the entire downtown area. They closed metro stations blocked off sidewalks to pedestrians, and they flooded the streets with riot police and police trucks. So the protesters responded to that and change their tactics and just walked around the city center in large groups of people. Hardly anybody I met wanted to admit that they were protesting since the penalties for unauthorized rallies are really severe. I spoke to one protester, he said his name was Andrej Cat Cough. He's a 27 year old manager in a trading company. I'm just walking. No, it's my city and the I just want to have some time outside. That's my right, he said. For him, this was not only a conflict between President Vladimir Putin and Alexei Navalny, he said. It was much bigger, he said. It's about a clash of generations between people who grew up in the Soviet Union and young people like him with open minds. We are now living in another country. We have another mentality, no sort of mentality more. You represents a growing number of Russians who don't have any memory of politics in the pre Putin era, and right now they're feeling very frustrated and boxed in. I'm kind of enjoying the idea of a protester just saying I just happened to be out for a walk, Mr Kim, along with thousands of other people, but it's clear from what you said that there was a big police presence. Does the Kremlin genuinely feel threatened here? Well, first of all, we should emphasize that these protests took place in many towns and cities across Russia, which is hugely significant because in the past, they've mostly been concentrated in large urban areas. This protest is truly national, and there are arrests in dozens of cities, including in the conservative Russian Heartland that has traditionally been very loyal to Putin. The Kremlin is extremely sensitive about this, and that's why we saw so many arrests. They're really just trying to scare people off the streets. But to its own constituents, the Kremlin is trying to project confidence state television eyes downplaying the size of the protests and trying To portray them as isolated actions, and the Russian Foreign Ministry is actually accusing the United States of interfering in Russian politics. It's really angry that the State Department has expressed its support for Russians right to demonstrate peacefully and these kind of statements, of course, give the Russian authorities a good opportunity to blame outsiders for stirring up. These protests were very briefly who's in the opposition and what comes next for them? Well, The Russian opposition is very defused. And these protests represent more than just support from Navalny as we heard from that young man. Kremlin's cracking down on Navalny's allies inside the country. Navalny's team outside the country is still in charge of these protests. Navalny has a court date tomorrow and Navalny's team using social media. Eyes calling on people to show up at the court tomorrow Morning, Lucy and thanks for the update, really appreciate it. Thanks, Steve. That's NPR's Lucian Kim in Moscow. Americans in general are becoming more willing to get the cove in 19 vaccine. That's according to a new poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation. But Brenda Leone, a reporter with Connecticut Public Radio, found that Latinos are often more skeptical than the general population. Here's why The stress of the medical system for they sing. Garcia goes back to when she arrived from Mexico 15 years ago as an undocumented teenager. She and her family came to pick tobacco on a ranch about half an hour's drive north of Hartford. Because you know you almost. Maybe when I started working in the tobacco field, we hardly ever went to the doctor. I don't believe anyone spoke about health insurance, either, she says. After she got permanent status, she trained to become a community health worker and now helps new mothers learn about the benefits of breastfeeding. Even though Garcia recently had covert 19. She's not convinced. Getting vaccinated is a good idea, man. I mean, okay, Okay. Think of not Axl. I'm afraid I'll have a negative reaction to the vaccine, she says. And she's not alone in being hesitant. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation survey. More than half of Latino adults are in no rush to get vaccinated. Leonie Arroyo is the director of Hartford's local health department. She says many Latino residents have historical reasons to be skeptical. She recalls the Tuskegee experiments in the mid 20th century when black men were deliberately not treated for syphilis, so researchers could study them. But there are awful things that happened in the Latino community that we don't necessarily always talk about, Like the experiments in the 19 forties, where the U. S Public Health service used sex workers to expose prisoners in Guatemala in jails With sexually transmitted diseases or in the 19 fifties, where Puerto Rican woman from low income communities were given experimental birth control pills without being told they were part of a clinical trial. Arroyo says her department is aware that some people don't want their personal information shared with the federal government. And so for us if someone is undocumented, and does not feel comfortable having all of the information in this database, then we're gonna work with them to put on Lee the information that's absolutely necessary. Connecticut has made covert vaccines free and anyone can receive them regardless of immigration status, or whether they have insurance coverage. You could Yes, said it's very real. Money that the spanner in Espanol Pakistan. That's Dr Jorge Merino, an internist and an assistant professor at the Yale School of Medicine. He made this YouTube video describing his experience getting the covert 19 vaccine because, he says members of the Latino community want to hear from a trusted source. There was very little information available in Spanish, and there was little information available from Hispanic providers that could speak the language that could relate give their experience about the vaccine. Back in her home, Garcia is still recovering from covert 19 supporting breastfeeding moms remotely Some have acts for her thoughts about the vaccine, Larry about one more minute. I want to know the truth is when I'm asked about the vaccine, I share information, but not my own views. Her own view is in line with the 9% of Latinos in America, who say they would only get the vaccine if their job required it for NPR News, Amber and alone in Hartford..

"This weekend. Well. Mr Navalny, who survived the Kremlin assassination attempt last year, is an added corruption hero. His views, like those of many of his supporters are complex. They push for government transparency. They also hold some anti immigrant in ethno nationalist views joined now by Julia Davis, a Russian media and disinformation expert at the Atlantic Council. And columnist at the Daily Beast. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you so much for having me again. We have become familiar with the image of election navalny in recent days, Charismatic. Brave. But tell us where he has come from politically because there's a time he was very popular with Russia's ethno nationalists. He still has Ah, nationalist leanings, and no one could say that he is a perfect alignment with all of the Western values, But there again, that's not What he aims to represent. What he mainly represents, is the possibility that the Russians might be the ones to decide who gets to lead Russia. We'll tell us a little bit more about his track record, and if he's revised it in recent years things, he said about Chechnya and Crimea, for example. He supported the annexation of Crimea, Unfortunately, and he also does have some nationalist leanings. He is evolving in in many respects and One of things that so unique about him is that he refuses to fear. Putin. However, it's over the supporters in what's become a pro Navalny coalition. Home comfortable, are they with some of what Alexei Navalny represents in his nationalist views. I have seen some of them have a problem with it. Unfortunately, nationalist and racist rhetoric is very commonplace in Russia, so that hasn't been something that really stood in his way, and it's not dissimilar from A lot of issues that we're seeing was Trump supporters in the United States, the fear of immigrants and the fear of other people that are coming and supposedly taking. Our jobs, So it's similar in that way. When did he begin? Tonto become part of what we would now call the opposition. It went on for years, and he has been in opposition leader than Putin arrested him for alleged corruption, which is really a classic game off. What about his actions instead of addressing Putin's own corruption, and therefore putting was able to prevent Navalny from running for president, which has been his Long term ambition just by filing bogus criminal charges against him. Inputting is now in a no win situation if he kills navalny in the Prison. Then he becomes a martyr, and it would be impossible to deny who's responsible for that, And if Navalny's allowed to continue to function, he will continue to be a thorn and put inside what is election of only stand for, in addition to not being Vladimir Putin He positioned himself as first and foremost anti corruption activist who's determined to change the The system in Russia, where, unlike Putin system, where his cronies and fellow oligarchs are rubbing Russia blind to where it would have a government that is accountable to the people and the corruption and out of control, stealing would be stopped. How is Russian state media and the Kremlin presenting the protests or are they? They're really cracking down hard on them, and they're actually going so far as to charge the parents off the miners that participated in demonstrations charging their parents criminally. They're really going above and beyond, Because in this protest, there was something that was very uncharacteristic for Protest in Russia, You could see real defines. So they're desperately trying to portray the demonstrations as being very small, which, in fact there were Very large and the went across Russia, so they're just trying to portray the demonstrators as a small group of people that have been misled by Navalny and trying to quiet everything down that way. Julia Davis is a Russian media expert. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you so much. God, it's my pleasure. Millions of students haven't been in real classroom surrounded by friends and chit chat for nearly a year. It may not only miss out on friends and teachers, but some of the essential services schools provide, including free and reduced lunch, an extra support for students with learning disabilities. And for many remote learning has been Very remote. Indeed, in our series we call learning curve. We've been trying to check in with parents, educators and students to try to understand how they're handling schooling during the pandemic. Bobbie Gary Jewish Children, is a bilingual school counselor at Frank, Quarter Gram Elementary School in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. She joins us now, thanks so much for being with us. Thank you for having me. I understand that you check in with students is a regular part of your efforts in in a classroom or one on one remotely. And you visited with some fifth graders this week. So what did they tell you? What do you notice? The kids are definitely missing school. They miss their friends. They missed the interactions that there were used to having. You know, on a daily basis, there's some students, of course that are living their best life. They're adjusting well, most, but most are terribly missing their friends and the structures of their day and Life as they knew it. And help us understand that from the students point of view, because, of course school is not just about Learning things in a classroom but learning things from each other. A lot of kids are, you know, starting to feel a sense of isolation, and that's saying a sense of hopelessness feeling like they don't have anything to look forward to. Like You said. You know, this is the age in elementary school where they get to really practice those human skills. Talking and listening and empathizing on observing even body language in other students, and not having that opportunity to do that definitely comes at a cost for them. I'm sure you're in excellent school counselor. But let me ask you this directly. Can you really have a good conversation with the student on zoom? Oh, my goodness. You know, I started the year trying to adapt to this virtual environment and oh, my goodness. It is so difficult because You can be engaging with a student and trying to connect at an intimate level, and then all of a sudden, you know, there's a lack of privacy. There's noise in the background. There's challenges with the connection itself. And then because they're so young, sometimes you know, I would set up a time with them to connect. And they just didn't show up because they forget or their parents lost the link. So as the months went by, what I started doing was actually you know, seeing the most urgent students outdoors and you? Of course, with all the precautions, I would go on hikes or Take walks in the park with them or sit away from each other at the park so that I can give them that opportunity to connect. But my own Children who are older and that up working in pretty high risk environments for Covitz, so I no longer felt confident. On being able to see kids in person and exposing them some now back to virtual, and it is hard. Well, and I'm going to guess. Tell me if I'm wrong that for a student who really fields isolated and that they're in trouble. Uh, it's gotta be hard to say over a zoom link. It is really hard to offer them help. And US a counselor. We walk into our practice with a high level of empathy. In order for us to really be able to assemble that net off support that the student needs on. So when you're behind that screen, and you're not able to really provide the supports that the student needs because off covert and because of that physical distance It's devastating, you know for a counselor because there are way too many variables that are beyond your control, so it is truly heartbreaking. What can parents who may be listening to to help their Children? Another Children? I think starting to have those conversations, you know, off course we have parents that have noticed that their kid's mental health is suffering and they're already reaching out to us. I would say, Do not delay if that's the case with your child..

Dr. Elena Benjamin is a senior lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University. It is complicated.

It's become a very sort of stagnant situation both politically but also economically, so I think people are fed up and I think the protests but also the way that people feel about politics or just the situation in Russia is less to do with novel being himself and what he stands for.
