    We've got a brand-new coup plot and a brand-new plague variant – and a brand-new Gaslit Nation to examine the nexus of the crisis and the origin of the storm! We start by discussing the coup that the Kremlin is allegedly preparing against Ukraine and review Paul Manafort's career of evil. Manafort, best known for plotting coups with Kremlin-affiliated actors, has been MIA since being pardoned by Trump in December 2020, and our guess is that he is…plotting a coup with Kremlin-affiliated actors.

Like the January 6 Capitol attackers lured into action with promises of protection, Rittenhouse is a pawn in a broader authoritarian play.

    This week's episode is devoted to the Texas state attack on reproductive rights and civil rights and its ramifications – not just for Texans, but for all Americans. This authoritarian attack codifies violent vigilantism, will inspire baseless reporting of citizens for political reasons, cultivates an atmosphere of vengeance and paranoia, and is backed by a Supreme Court packed with multiple corrupt justices installed by a career criminal Kremlin asset president. The Texas attack on reproductive rights is where theocrats, kleptocrats, authoritarians, white supremacists, misogynists, and secessionists all meet – much like they have in the Trump administration and its GOP backers. Texas is a hostage state, and we encourage you to support the Texans fighting back against their oppressive legislature. We are all Americans and we must support vulnerable Americans threatened by this abuse of power and corruption of law.
