Brian Becker and Dr. Gerald Horne discuss the one-year anniversary of the January 6th assault on the U.S. Capitol, encouraged and organized by Donald Trump. It was the first time since 1812 that the U.S. government was under attack on its home soil, yet the leaders of the attack have still not been prosecuted – just the soldiers. What's happened in the year since the assault? What does it tell us about what's coming? And how can we fight back? Brian is joined by Dr. Gerald Horne. He holds the Moores Professorship of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston and is the author of many books, including “The Color of Fascism: Lawrence Dennis, Racial Passing, and the Rise of Right-Wing Extremism in the United States,” and “The Counter-Revolution of 1776: Slave Resistance and the Origins of the United States of America.” Watch the NEW video edition of “The Real Story” on BreakThrough News!

Also, US and Russian officials are preparing their respective teams and issues for critical meetings in Geneva and Brussels.Professor Nicolai Petro, professor of political science at the University of Rhode Island specializing in Ukraine and Russia, joins us to discuss Ukraine's crackdown on opposition media. Ukrainian president Vlodomor Zelensky has again moved to close the opposition media. Three companies related to the main opposition party have also been heavily sanctioned. The Biden administration's lack of response is viewed as tacit support for the acts of blatant censorship. Also, far-right neo-Nazis are again marching to support World War 2 Nazi collaborators.Laith Marouf, broadcaster and journalist based in Beirut, joins us to discuss the Middle East. Israel has attacked civilian targets in Gaza once again claiming that their actions are in response to rocket attacks. Also, US bases in Iraq are facing drone attacks and some suspect that the new year will bring increased activities of this nature.Gerald Horne, professor of history at the University of Houston, author, historian, and researcher, joins us to discuss Africa.

Also, the US empire has transformed Djibouti into a tool of international military aggression.Nick Davies, peace activist and author of "Blood on Our Hands: The American Invasion of Iraq," joins us to discuss the Pentagon budget. The Pentagon is projected to hand over almost a half-trillion dollars to military contractors in 2022. Also, the $778 billion military budget in the face of massive debt and public strife may be the final nail in the coffin of the US empire.Peter James Hudson, associate professor of African American Studies and History at the University of California, Los Angeles and author of the book Bankers and Empire: How Wall Street Colonized the Caribbean, joins us to discuss Haiti.

After thousands there, including most world leaders, there is little left to show in the outcome thus far, except for a watered-down mention of coal and fossil fuels. Even though it's watered-down, the United States has refused to sign on to it. This, as the Biden administration bends to the coal and oil lobby, and is opening up more access to oil and gas drilling. "So much for US leadership," complain other countries. China and the US did announce what is seen as a breakthrough. They announced a non-binding agreement, that some see at least as a step in the right direction. The United States and other countries that are mostly responsible for the climate crisis are refusing to pay the funds needed by small islands and other developing countries of the Global South, who are the first to feel the brunt of climate change. They need these funds to stop and reverse the damage to their nations. Meanwhile, back in the United States, two trials highlighting racial tensions are taking place, and comparisons are being made to the history of vigilantism in the country. This, as attacks on teaching the true history of the United States is increasingly under attack, including voters in Virginia electing a Republican candidate saying they are concerned about what they call the teaching of critical race theory in schools. This, they say, is why they opposed the Democratic candidate. Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison's books have been attacked, with some suggesting that they be burned, including "Beloved" and "The Bluest Eye." What does all of this mean as the nation still refuses to grapple with its history and its present-day legacy. On the international front, we get an update from South of the Border, and we look at what is happening with the migrant crisis in Europe, including what is happening at the Poland-Belarus border. Meanwhile in China, President Xi moves to extend his presidency and to solidify his role in China's history.

Earlier this month, the online left had a spirited debate about whether it should embrace "patriotism." Is pride in country inextricable from a noxious nationalism? Or can patriotism be redefined as something less jingoistic but equally appealing to the working classes? Should the Right have the exclusive ability to weaponize the stars and stripes to advance their faux populist agenda? Or should the left learn to love America, too? Is political scientist and cultural critic Micheal Parenti correct when he says there is no true patriotism without a love a justice? Or is that just wishful thinking? This week, Brie invited African American History Professor & prolific author Gerald Horne on to discuss whether the white supremacist roots of American History foreclose the possibility that patriotism can work for the left.
