Red states turn their assaults on minorities up to 11

Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show with a look at an effort by Idaho Republicans to take over a local Democratic Party and destroy it from within. 
 
Then we're joined by University of Maryland political scientist Brian Grodsky to talk about the potential pitfalls inherent in the most punishing sanctions regime the world has ever pursued in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. 
 
And then we welcome Jessica Mason Pieklo, executive editor of the Rewire Newsgroup and co-host of Boom, Lawyered!to take a bird's eye view of an alarming trend of red state lawmakers, emboldened by a judiciary captured by right-wing ideologues, pursuing an increasingly fascistic legislative agenda.
