The West seems to have reached an agreement over tank provisions to Ukraine, and the New York Times dreams of German military power.
Scholar, educator and journalist focusing on the Asia-Pacific KJ Noh joins Misfits hosts Michelle Witte and John Kiriakou to discuss the possible Russian response to the provision of tanks to Ukraine, the degradation of diplomatic ties between the West and Russia as nuclear negotiations stall, crackdowns on progressive and trade union organizers in South Korea, what to make of the Japanese prime minister warning Japan is on the brink of ‘social dysfunction’, and the resignation of the Vietnamese president.
Editor of Kawsachun News and PressTV Latin America correspondent Camila Escalante discusses the ongoing response to the attempted right-wing coup in Brazil, investigations into former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro for his role in that attempted coup and possible genocide of an indigenous people, discussions between Argentina and Brazil on a joint currency, and the record number of killings of Colombian activists.
Editor, author and senior columnist at Black Agenda Report Margaret Kimberley discusses the US’ culture of violence, the conviction of Oath Keepers and what it means for right-wing groups that mobilized on January 6, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s attempt to declare “Antifa” a terrorist organization, Gov. Ron DeSantis’ attack on Black history curricula, the arrest of an FBI agent over his connections to Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska, and the media’s reliance on sponsored content.
The Misfits also discuss the discovery of classified documents at former Vice President Mike Pence’s home, the DOJ joining several states in suing Google over its alleged advertising monopoly, and a GOP fight in rural Pennsylvania.
