Their comments come as many Americans, particularly Trump supporters, continue to deny the dark reality of the Capitol insurrection

Some of America’s most prominent historians gave an urgent warning about the state of American democracy as they gathered on Capitol Hill on Thursday to commemorate the 6 January insurrection.

Doris Kearns Goodwin and Jon Meacham condemned the attack on the Capitol, which was carried out by a group of former president Donald Trump’s supporters to disrupt the certification of Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election.

High-profile Russian Senator Konstantin Kosachev, chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, says protesters in Kazakhstan included militants in armed gangs operating in "Middle East, primarily in Afghanistan."

In a speech at the U.S. Capitol marking one year since the violent insurrection, President Biden stressed that "the way forward is to recognize the truth": that former President Trump has "created and spread a web of lies about the 2020 election." He called for a defense of voting rights and for Americans to unite. Vice President Kamala Harris also spoke about the defense of democracy. Tony Dokoupil anchors CBS News Special Report coverage from Capitol Hill with chief White House correspondent Nancy Cordes, congressional correspondent Scott MacFarlane, and chief national affairs and justice correspondent Jeff Pegues.

Rep. Liz Cheney @RepLizCheney
The @January6thCmte has first-hand testimony that former President Trump sat and watched the assault on the Capitol on live TV, rather than taking immediate action to tell his supporters to stand down and leave the Capitol.

January 6th Committee @January6thCmte
It took Trump 187 minutes to make a statement calling off the mob that attacked our Capitol.

The former President's dereliction of duty is cause for serious concern. @BennieGThompson

U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy @RepStephMurphy
It's hard to believe that tomorrow will be a year since I took these photos after the attack on our Capitol.

We cannot forget how close we came that day to losing our democracy. Our #Jan6Committee is making swift progress and we will not back down until we find the truth.


January 6th Committee @January6thCmte
🧵 On January 6th, 2021, our democracy was on the brink of catastrophe. The American people witnessed a violent attempt to overturn an election that came perilously close to succeeding.

Today, we highlight some of the events that threatened the peaceful transfer of power.
Bennie G. Thompson @BennieGThompson
Today marks a year since the tragedy of Jan. 6. We have been working diligently to bring justice to this matter.


Adam Kinzinger @RepKinzinger
We cannot move on from January 6th without taking action to make sure it never happens again. And that starts by admitting the facts, calling out the lies, & addressing the toxic tribalism plaguing this nation.

            Staunton, Nov. 14 – Despite continuing repression, Vladimir Putin in recent weeks has devoted ever more attention to ideology as he seeks to complete “the final transition from an amorphous post-communist authoritarianism” to “a reactionary-restorationist post-modern totalitarianism,” Vladimir Pastukhov argues.

            The chief weapon in this campaign designed to impose on Russians a different vision of their society has become “the imposition of myths, the massive production and distribution of which has become one of the most important functions of the regime,” the London-based Russian analyst says (novayagazeta.ru/articles/2021/11/13/poveliteli-mifov-i-puzyrei).

            The ease with which the Kremlin leader has achieved this reflects the fact that the Kremlin is participating in what is taking place in the world as a whole. “The regime understood and has ridden the wave which came to Russia from the West and now is rapturously sending back” for its own purposes.

            According to Pastukhov, “Russia always has been part of worldwide trends, if they are negative.” And so it should not come as any surprise that it is moving in a direction similar to that abroad toward some “’new Medieval period,” rejecting positivism and relying on myths as the guiding principle.

            “Myths are returning, but not in the form of an old one handed down from generation to generation but as a completely new and virginal myth, literally fabricated out of deception and woven together via billions of unseen network links,” one of the ways that new technologies have assisted this development.

            The London-based analyst notes that “present-day technologies allow the ordinary user of the Internet to personally take part in the mass production of myths without leaving his couch. This, in fact, changes a lot.” And the Internet has become “a powerful trigger and catalyzer of the return to a new Middle Ages, but it is in no way its cause.”

            That cause, Pastukhov continues, lies in “the fear of enormous changes which are touching the delay lives of ordinary people throughout the world.”  They feel that forces are at work which they do not understand and can’t control and thus seek stories which give them reassurance even if those stories lead to a new authoritarianism.

            “Today, Russia is ahead of the entire planet in the production of cultural consumer bubbles” that provide people with reassurance, he argues. “In Russia, contemporary technologies of myth-making are supported by the preservation of archaic mythological consciousness which has remained practically untouched from neolithic times.”

            And this combination of factors has given the Putin regime a comparative advantage. “It appeared at the right time in the right place. In another time and another place, it would not have been nearly as effective.” But even more, “in Russia, myth is the affair of the state,” and by controlling the state, Putin has been able to control this process.

            “In the course of the ideological modernization being carried out by the Kremlin, traditional Soviet technologies of propaganda and counter-propaganda were integrated with the latest methods of promoting content on the Internet.” The Kremlin’s successful use of the Internet is why Moscow has not moved to shut off Russians from it.

            In sum, Pastukhov says, “the enormous success of the Russian propaganda machine is based in the final analysis in that by acting locally, it has fallen in the global demand for myths.” Indeed, it has seen this opportunity more clearly than others and exploited it in Moscow’s interests.

            The global shift from rationalism to mythological consciousness “inevitably leads to a crisis in democracy and the growth of authoritarianism throughout the world,” but it is also the case that this is “a disease of growth,” one that reflects a transition from the order of the last half century into some unknown future. It therefore won’t last forever.

            When the real world catches up with the virtual world, the virtual world will recede in importance both as a political tool and as the definer of life in various countries including Russia. But this transition is going to be difficult and will likely last many decades so it is far too early to dismiss those who see an opportunity here and are using it.

            Historically, Russia has often jumped on trends and then gone further than others in trying to exploit them. Sometimes that has worked, but often the Russian attempts have shown the underlying contradictions of any trend Moscow tries to follow. There are thus good reasons to think that this may be true once again.

The draft for the Group Portrait with the focus on Vladislav Klyushin: They sent him to Amertica to chirp (but not to tweet any more) and sing. Does this mean, that someone in the Kremlin needed to do that? Why, and what for? What is their plan and strategy?

Российский бизнесмен Владислав Клюшин, который ранее был экстрадирован из Швейцарии в США, имел доступ к данным о секретных зарубежных операциях Главного разведывательного управления (ГРУ) Генштаба РФ. Об этом стало известно Bloomberg от источников, близких к Кремлю и российской разведке.

“You may be seeing the signs that they are continuing to pursue this case, with real big implications for exposing in even greater detail what the Russians did to influence the outcome of our election,” said Michael McFaul, former U.S. ambassador to Russia in the Obama administration.

According to the insider trading indictment, Klyushin’s IT company, M-13, worked for the Russian presidency and governmental agencies. Also named in the indictment was Ivan Yermakov, a former military intelligence official who was indicted in 2018 as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in 2016.

But the intriguing part of Klyushin’s capture in Switzerland may be that he traveled there at all.

Bloomberg reports that Klyushin was “approached by U.S. and U.K. spy agencies in the two years before his exit from Russia and received heightened levels of security in Switzerland.” He also curiously failed to make a final appeal challenging his extradition to the U.S. after both U.S. and Russian officials had been competing to win his extradition from Switzerland following his arrest there.

“It underscores the risk that anybody, billionaires or others close to the Russian state, face when they break American laws if they travel abroad,” McFaul noted.
