Zelensky’s Lukewarm Reception In Washington, China Accuses NSA of Hacking Huawei, NFL Accuses Running Backs of Lying About Injuries
In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by journalist and author Dan Lazare to discuss Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky’s visit to Washington, DC as he continues to pursue more military aid for the conflict in Ukraine, how the differences between Zelensky’s reception now and his reception in his previous trip to Washington may speak to attitudes toward continued US support for military aid to Ukraine, how this reflects past instances of US support for conflicts in other countries and how that may provide insight into the future of the conflict in Ukraine, and how this could affect the upcoming 2024 presidential election.
In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by KJ Noh, a scholar, educator and journalist focusing on the political economy and geopolitics of the Asia-Pacific to discuss China's Ministry of State Security claiming that the NSA has hacked Huawei since 2009, how this fits into the US tech war on China, why the US is interested in targeting Huawei in particular after its attempted prosecution of Huawei Meng Wanzhou, and how this fits into the broader cold war against China.
In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Miguel Garcia of the ANTICONQUISTA Collective, also the host and creator of the Sports as a Weapon podcast to discuss allegations of hazing among the swim team at Boston College and the culture of hazing in college sports, a bill in the House Oversight Committee which would allow for the Commanders to move to the RFK Stadium site in Washington DC and the debate over the use of public funds for a potential new stadium, and the NFL accusing the NFLPA of telling running backs to lie or exaggerate about injuries.
Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Netfa Freeman, Coordinating Committee member with the Black Alliance for Peace, organizer with Pan-African Community Action, and host of Voices with Vision on WPFW 89.3 FM to discuss the ongoing and escalating strike by United Auto Workers at the big three automakers as the US experiences a surge of labor activism, a report detailing the extent of food insecurity in the Washington, DC area and how it is related to the class struggle present in ongoing labor struggles, and how the upcoming anniversary of the launching of AFRICOM is connected to ongoing struggles involving African and African diasporic people.
