Disinformation expert: We‘re witnessing a ‘global far-right power-grab‘

Believe it or not, Joshua Holland has yet more grievances with the mainstream media's coverage of the Afghanistan withdrawal, and he kicks off this week's show airing them.

Then we are joined by Imani Gandy, Rewire News Group's senior legal editor, to talk about how Texas Republicans are effectively banning abortion. No matter how extreme and ridiculous you thought this new law was, Imani will surprise you with some of the details. A really creative but of wingnuttery. 
 
Then we speak with TruthOrFiction.com Managing Editor Brooke Binkowski, who explains why you might notice the same belligerent right-wing activists shouting about masks and CRT at multiple school board meetings and then protesting against vaccines in a bunch of other locations--and why they represent one element in a much broader attempt to subvert pluralistic democracy.
