On Wednesday Turkish President Erdogan traveled to Sochi, Russia, where he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin for nearly three hours. While there was no official readout from either side detailing what was discussed, reports indicate that a number of key issues were on the table, including tensions in Syria, energy, and weapons deals. The meeting came after Erdogan's visit to New York for the UN General Assembly summit, where he did not conceal his dissatisfaction with President Biden or the state of US-Turkish relations, even suggesting that Turkey would buy more Russian S-400s. Nicholas Danforth joins our host Thanos Davelis to analyze the latest summit between Erdogan and Putin, and look at the balancing act Turkey is trying to play between the US and Russia. Nicholas Danforth is a Non-Resident Senior Research Fellow at the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy, ELIAMEP, and the author of the newly published “The Remaking of Republican Turkey: Memory and Modernity.”You can read the articles we discuss on our podcast here: Amid Tensions With U.S., Erdogan Praises Ties With RussiaErdogan says Turkey is looking at further defence steps with RussiaSyria to be key topic in Erdogan-Putin summitErdogan-Putin summit highlights Turkey's fragile balancing actMDCA negotiations are nearing endUS renews partial waiver on arms embargoHALC tweet on US renewal of partial waiver of Cyprus arms embargo by the US

On Conflicts of Interest #169, Kyle Anzalone breaks down recent statements from former Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. Despite previous rhetoric against “regime change wars,” Tulsi has called for an expansion of the War on Terror and continues to speak of the need to target “Islamists.” Tulsi lumps multiple diverse Muslim countries together and suggests their religion poses a unique danger to Americans that must be countered with drone warfare, which she presents as the humane option compared to regime change.  Kyle talks about the smear campaign targeting Rep. Thomas Massie after his heroic vote against funding Israel's military. Massie is one of only nine members of Congress – and the sole Republican – to vote “no.” The bill, which still has to pass the Senate, will hand Israel $1 billion in US taxdollars to resupply its Iron Dome interceptors, an essential tool for maintaining the Israeli apartheid regime. However, the Israel lobby is targeting Massie with false antisemitism claims.  Kyle discusses Biden's speech before the UN General Assembly in New York. The president told several lies, but among the biggest whoppers were claims that he does not seek a Cold War with China, and that the US is not at war for the first time in 20 years. In reality, US forces have bombed Syria in the past week, continue to occupy Iraq, and are waging drone wars from Niger to Pakistan. While Biden maintained he doesn't want a Cold War with China, his Air Force Secretary Frank Kendell has nonetheless pushed to weaponize space to counter China, while other military leaders speak obsessively about the need to confront Beijing.

In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by Dr. Jack Rasmus, economist, radio show host, & author of 'The Scourge of Neoliberalism' to discuss the politics and corporate agenda surrounding the debate around the reconciliation bill, the reality and context behind the debt ceiling debate, and how society can be reorganized to meet the needs of working and poor people rather than corporations. In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Milton Allimadi, Chief Editor of Black Star News, producer/host of the Black Star News Show on WBAI in NY and author of “Manufacturing Hate: How Africa was Demonized in Western Media” to discuss the quest for justice after a massacre in Guinea, how the recent coup has disrupted that process, and how corporate media coverage of the African continent contributes to neocolonialism and racist caricatures of Africans as irrational and tribal.In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by technologist Chris Garaffa, the editor of TechforthePeople.org to discuss the CIA targeting Julian Assange with kidnapping or assassination, the “predictive policing” and surveillance threats posed by social media data mining technology used by police, and Amazon's absurdly sensitive surviellance of drivers.Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Rania Khalek, journalist with Breakthrough News and co-host of the Unauthorized Disclosure podcast to discuss Congress' approval of funding for the Iron Dome missile system and how Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's “present” vote encapsulates progressive frustrations with her, the economic situation in Lebanon and Iran and Hezbollah's efforts to provide relief, and the US's waning power as demonstrated at the UN General Assembly.

Topping today's episode- South Korea's military says North Korea fired at least one missile in the waters off Japan today. Japan's defense ministry says it appeared to be a ballistic missile. The launch came just before North Korea's ambassador to the UN Kim Song, speaking before the UN General Assembly, said no one can deny his country's right to “self-defense” and to test weapons and urged the US to end its “hostile policy” towards Pyongyang.

In a recent New Yorker ‘Letter from Biden's Washington,' Susan Glasser delivers a stark indictment: Trumpists and Republican leadership are consciously keeping enough people resisting the Biden administration's efforts to control the virus “to keep the disease wreaking havoc.” Why that conclusion now? “It is no accident” that 1 in 500 Americans have died, now totaling over 687,000. It's becoming obvious that President Biden cannot inoculate Americans against Fox News. In the meantime, the Biden administration, “on both foreign and domestic fronts, remains a jumble of aspirations and retains a haze of uncertainty about how to achieve them.” That directly shapes its international approach to Covid-19, including the recent Global Covid-19 Summit organized by President Biden on the margins of the UN General Assembly. It is “a statement of the obvious” that nearly half of the country is dedicated to the failure of the Biden administration. When a “flaming dumpster fire” pandemic continues in the United States -- the fourth wave fueled by vaccine refusals – the resulting domestic crisis gravely limits the ability of the United States to be a world leader on Covid-19. On the pandemic as well as Afghanistan and other foreign policy priorities, the administration is taking an approach that is far less multilateral, alliance-focused, and consultative than expected. Why? The answer is not yet clear: if the administration is simply overwhelmed by demands, or if this approach is a conscious internal “predilection.” Does she agree we are drifting inexorably towards a US-China cold war bifurcation of the world? “Yes, I do.” Do we urgently need a national commission on the pandemic? “Absolutely.” “You cannot escape history.” Please listen to know more.

The 76th United Nations General Assembly began on Tuesday, September 21 and controversy has already begun as world leaders addressed the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, the strain placed upon the global economy, Afghanistan falling to the Taliban, and tensions between the U.S. and China. President Biden spoke at the UNGA and did not call out China, instead calling for international unity and cooperation to overcome the pandemic and climate crisis. Fox News Senior Correspondent Eric Shawn joins us from the U.N. to discuss the criticism of President Biden's speech, the Taliban's push for UN recognition of their Afghanistan leadership amid human rights abuses and how the U.S. is mending a rift with France after a controversial sale of submarines to Australia. Eric Shawn also details how Iran pushed to restart nuclear talks, the UNGA's central theme of climate change, and the COVID-19 issues that arose from a lack of vaccination requirements.   Facebook is under fire after a recent Wall Street Journal investigation revealed that the company has been shielding high-profile users from content moderation guidelines most users must abide by. Reportedly, regulations that would ban content for the average user have been essentially ignored for celebrities, politicians, and other elites on the platform due to Facebook's “cross check” system. On top of the revelations from the recent Facebook Files, shareholders have now filed lawsuits alleging Facebook and the government engaged in a “quid pro quo”  The lawsuits accuse Facebook of overpaying $5 billion dollars on a fine from the FTC in an attempt to protect CEO Mark Zuckerberg from personal liability from the infamous Cambridge Analytica leak. Fox Business Network Financial Correspondent Jackie DeAngelis joins to break down how Facebook's cross check system works and the ways that the company has adjusted its social media regulations and practices throughout the pandemic. She also takes a look back at the Cambridge Analytica scandal of 2015 and how the lawsuit alleging quid pro quo may play out.   Plus, commentary from Pastor Robert Jeffress of the Dallas First Baptist Church.

The Boys have never believed the hyperbole, but maybe we are actually losing our country. Military members are facing vaccine mandates, and may face a dishonorable discharge for disobeying. Senator Ron Johnson was asking what would be simple questions for any Secretary of Homeland Security, but genius Alejandro Mayorkas can't answer how many migrants have been dispersed into the country. Portland city officials had a lot of criticism for Texas due to their anti-abortion law, but they were rather quick to walk back their comments. The Taliban is feeling left out after not being invited to the UN General Assembly, despite the fact that there is no definitive leader of Afghanistan. Bill Gates was squirming during his interview with PBS when asked about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, and cited his death as the reason for not addressing the issue. Dr. Anthony Fauci has destroyed his own credibility with his persistent lies, and he is way off when it comes to the statistics on influenza deaths among children.

Also in the programme: we look at Pakistan's relationship with the Taliban and its role in Afghanistan, and ask whether the British government's public identification of a third Russian man involved in the notorious 2018 Salisbury poisonings will make any difference to Russian undercover operations.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for September 21st, 2021.It is now official, at least according to the numbers from Johns Hopkins, COVID-19 has now killed as many Americans as the 1918-19 Spanish flu. 675,000 Americans died during the 1918 pandemic, in waves that played out over about two years. But back then there were no vaccines. It wasn't until the 30s researchers even understood influenza was caused by a virus and not a bacterium.Finally, some much needed good news for travel and tourism. The U.S. said it will allow foreigners to fly into the country this fall if they have vaccination proof and a negative COVID-19 test. That replaces a hodgepodge of rules that kept out non-citizens from countries that frankly, are doing better than the U.S. in containing outbreaks.The school mask fight may soon switch to a vaccine for kids fight. Pfizer said its vaccine works for children 5 to 11 and it will seek U.S. authorization for this age group soon. For elementary school-aged kids, Pfizer tested a much lower dose — a third of the amount that's in each shot given now. But after the second dose, the kids developed coronavirus-fighting antibody levels equal to that of teens and young adults getting regular-strength shots. Pfizer says the kid dosage also proved safe.Someone just got COVID in American Samoa. That's newsworthy because, it was their very first case. And even then it was a traveler from Hawaii. Believe it or not there are still countries and territories, mostly islands, that have yet to experience one case of COVID, including the Cook Islands, Saint Helena, the Federated States of Micronesia, Tonga, Tuvalu, and the Pitcairn Islands. Mostly the kinds of places where Survivor is filmed. No special treatment for the president of Brazil. He's against vaccinations and would not get vaccinated before attending this week's UN General Assembly in New York. Therefore, he was not allowed inside a New York City restaurant and was told he'd have to eat his pizza slice outside. Which he did. In the United States cases were down 8%, deaths are up 29%, and hospitalizations are down 8% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,748,413 active cases in the United States.With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the greatest daily number of deaths per capita are Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Idaho, and West Virginia. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Knox, KY. Russell, KY. Scott, TN. Andrews, TX. Rockcastle, KY. Lewis, WV. Powell, KY. Perry, KY. Whitley, KY. And Lincoln, MT. There have been at least 676,059 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related.The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont at 68.9%, Connecticut at 67.7%, and Maine at 67.5%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are West Virginia at 40.1%, Wyoming at 40.6%, and Idaho at 40.8%.
