    Laith Marouf, broadcaster and journalist based in Beirut, Lebanon, joins us to discuss the Middle East. Supporters of the Palestinians are enraged as a civil leader is arrested and dies in the custody of the Palestinian National Authority. Also, international security analysts are asserting that the Afghan government will likely fall within six months after the US reduces its troop levels. 

    Jack Rasmus, professor in economics and politics at St. Mary's College in California, joins us to discuss economics. Dr. Jack asserts that the illusion of partisan haggling over the details of the infrastructure bill was kabuki theatre, and the final arrangements were worked out weeks ago. Also, he breaks down the plan and explains that it is just another corporate giveaway.

    Linwood Tauheed, associate professor of economics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, joins us to talk about the Global South. President Biden continues the oppression of Venezuela, as he refuses to relieve the devastating sanctions on the anti-imperialist nation. Also, 184 nations voted to relieve the US blockade on Cuba, with only Israel and the US voting to maintain the brutal sanctions.
