While the Jan 6th committee will produce hundreds of hours of testimony important for the historical record, have they investigated the reasons why ten former secretaries of defense and the editorial board of the Financial Times thought a coup was in progress – on Jan 4th? What was the role of Christian Nationalism in the military? What is the threat of another coup attempt in the future? Gerald Horne joins Paul Jay on theAnalysis.news.
On January 10, 2021, four days following Trump’s attempted coup, Gerald Horne stated that “class-based reforms must be combined with a fierce crackdown on the violators of the law on January 6.” Horne discusses the historical background and the lead-up to this event with Paul Jay on theAnalysis.news.
Why did ten former secretaries of defence fear a coup coming from within the U.S. military, two days before the storming of Capitol Hill? Philip Gorski, author of The Flag and the Cross, joins Paul Jay to discuss the role of Christian extremists in the days leading up to Jan 6th and the growing strength of the movement.
The riot on the Hill was not an insurrection, but it was the final violent act of a failed coup. But why is the role of Mitch McConnell and the National Association of Manufacturers not being examined? Paul Jay joins the By George podcast Pt3/3.
The events of Jan 6th were the last gasp of a failed Trump coup, fuelled by the power of Christian extremists in the military and Congress.

With the left’s recent electoral successes in Peru and Bolivia, and previously in Mexico and Argentina, does this mean that there is a second so-called “Pink Tide” in Latin America? If so, how do we make sense of the first Pink Tide, its successes and failures, and what might Latin America’s left have learned from the first tide, as it gets ready to take power in several countries? René Rojas, professor at SUNY Binghamton, and Hilary Goodfriend, of Jacobin Magazine Latin America, argue that while the left needs a clearer economic plan, it is at an advantage at the moment because of the right’s disarray across the region.
YouTube has censored and suppressed my report on the events of January 6th. I’d like to know why, but Google doesn’t owe me an answer. They can promote or suppress whatever they please. Now a new book by Washington Post reporters confirms my report. This is my post from Feb. 20, 2021
