1:02 pm
washington blacklisted russian companies expelled diplomats barred u.s. banks from buying russian debt moscow in return kicked out 10 u.s. diplomats and a number of officials from entering russia shortly after announcing the new sanctions u.s. president joe biden said he wanted to deescalate tensions with more on the mixed messages coming from washington there she quickly dela big politics is all about big p.r. political marketing of trump america transitioned from saucy nicknames for his opponents into the biden age which spearheads now shameless self promotion america is back america is back diplomacy is back biden diplomacy sounds like a classic personal brand of so what is it well for russia it apparently means
1:03 pm
a sanctions sledgehammer through several steps including the expulsion of several russian officials as a consequence of their actions i've also signed an executive order authorizing new measures including sanctions to address specific harmful actions that russia has taken against u.s. interests well the man seems to be abundantly clear at least for ones right well he would have been had he not led into these sanctions announcement with this. united states is not looking to kick off a cycle of skule should be in conflict with russian we want a stable predictable relationship these signals are not just mixed in terms of consistency they're on par with noises from space joe biden was able joe biden said he's interested in normalization of russian u.s. relations but the actions of his administration show us the opposite the u.s. is not ready to deal with the reality of the multipolar world which shut out the
1:04 pm
possibility of american has humani instead they can sanctions and interference in our internal affairs just this week biden and putin talked over the phone to join the conversation the us president and a new batch of sanctions in putin's face only to express hope later for a stable and predictable way forward and the white house sees no problem here no discrepancy forget proof for good reason forget who's president even biden strategy is to bully a country out of geopolitical relevance and it seems that's the only predictable thing about america left after all trumps anti russia sanctions galore that appears to his whole term didn't save the ex-president from being shamed for being soft on russia so maybe biden is resorting to nuclear options right away desperately trying
1:05 pm
to keep one foot in the door though the door leading to that positive trajectory while on veiling the latest raft of sanctions the u.s. also cited claims made last year of russia offering bounties to the taliban to kill american troops in afghanistan the white house admits it has very little to back up those claims but is never the less demanding l. cers from the kremlin. we felt the reports were enough of a cause of concern they assessed with low to moderate confidence as you alluded to that russian intelligence officers sought to encourage taliban attacks against u.s. and coalition personnel in afghanistan so while there's a lot of moderate assessment of these reports we felt it was important for our intelligence committee to look into it this information really puts the burden on russia and the russian government to explain their engagement here last june it was reported that russian intelligence offered linked militants money to kill american soldiers and $20.00 dean the allegations were never proven the pentagon itself said
1:06 pm
it could not corroborate the reports but that didn't stop the media from jumping on the un verified story vladimir putin is offering for the scalps of american soldiers in afghanistan now the european intelligence official called this callous shocking and reprehensible overnight president trump dismissed the intelligence denied being briefed on it as new reports emerged saying those payments did in fact lead to the death of americans russia has rejected the allegations with the foreign ministry branding that the speculations and phobias of the u.s. intelligence community we got the tick all former u.s. marine corps intelligence officer scott ritter. the mere fact that you have politicians action on intelligence that has appeared on the front pages of the new york times bill is you right off the bat and it's not intelligence it's been it's clear sized information as opposed to hard intelligence the united states and
1:07 pm
russia are adults they they they they sit at the big table they were big boys pants and their intelligence services do things you can see one another because that information normally we understand this is the reality of the world but the united states right now is very defensive it's dealing with the changing world changing reality and the fact that russia refuses to play the game of being subservient to you know a dominant america and so this is a domestic political problem where intelligence is 0 and political objective as opposed to doing what it's supposed to do providing insight american decision makers about what ground truth in russia is. the russian foreign ministry has summoned the czech and passenger for talks and in a diplomatic standoff between the 2 countries it is in response to prague expelling 18 russian diplomats while accusing law school of being behind
1:08 pm
a huge explosion and an i'm going to go back in 2014 russia firmly rejects the allegations the accusations are absurd especially as earlier the czech government laid the blame for the explosions at the door of the companies that. this hostile step is a continuation of a series of anti russian actions conducted over the last several years by the czech republic one cannot also fail to notice the american influence by trying to win washington's favor as the u.s. imposes sanctions against russia the czech authorities have even outdone their american musters. joins me now in the studio to talk more in this furley recta words there really aren't there from from tickets through this new diplomatic crisis if you will while you know and so many diplomats were forced to pack their suitcases and their lot in the last few days because of these expulsions one after the other america ordered 10 russian diplomats to head back to russia
1:09 pm
then russia responded adventurously poland announced similar measures but they were only targeting 3 russian 3 members of the russian embassy in warsaw but then eventually we heard from czech officials who announced that fragged prague decided to expel 80 people members of the russian embassy there that is even more than the u.s. and this is a very significant share of the embassy staff so you probably think there must be a very serious reason for it now prague has accused this group of being of working as intelligence operatives in the czech republic and also blamed russia for being behind a major explosion at a military i mean mission warehouse that happened 7 years ago the cause of the
1:10 pm
explosion was never confirmed one of the versions suggested that it could have been due to workers negligence but now all of a sudden prague is blaming moscow and this almost coincides with the decisions on expulsions by warsaw and washington on the exclusion parts of things private i believe is looking for some suspects in particular well this is the interesting part because the 2 suspects that the czech police are now looking for the faces of these 2 people. you might find them familiar because the pair was already accused of trying to poison the script balls back in 28 being in the u.k. back then london revealed their identities their names were alexander petrol and. bashir if so right now with this news with these announcements coming from the
1:11 pm
czech authorities the czech authorities said that the 2 men were linked to these explosions and immediately their photos and names were back in international headlines but the russian foreign ministry though is saying that by trying to spin this story and by making their announcements and the decisions that prague is making right now. the russian foreign ministry believes that this is only an attempt to distract attention from another big news story that is now important here in eastern europe it looks like an attack she supported by facts that the west needed to cover up the importance of the information published by both russia and belarus about not just a conspiracy but an actual plan for a constitutional. a quite extraordinary story so a coup was being allegedly planned for bella roosts in the midst of all this yes
1:12 pm
this is a different story but again a very important part very very important story for this region the russian federal security service has recently announced that they detained 2 men one of the russian citizenship the other one has dual citizenship and the u.s. and they're believed to have been plotting a coup in bella ruse by allegedly attempting to assassinate the president or even members of his family during victory day and alexander lukashenko the bell russian leader he immediately blamed washington for orchestrating that attempt washington though is denying any involvement now in this case you may ask what does this story have to do with the situation in the czech republic because they are happening simul take simultaneously and the russian officials have often blamed
1:13 pm
washington for using some of the eastern european countries asked puppets in particular the czech republic is a close ally of the u.s. it's a member of nato clearly not with a central role but the assumption by the russian officials and the foreign ministry in particular is that washington could be telling some of the governments in these countries what to do when it comes to their attempts to demonize russia internationally and make these political decisions and steps against russia on an international level extraordinary last few days earlier thanks for taking us through the main points of all of it. and indeed some of the points earlier was just bringing up there let's put them to independent journalist look revealed live on the program. thanks for taking time on a sunday to speak to us russia's claiming the czech republic is just using this
1:14 pm
story to bury revelations about a coup attempt in belarus how do you see it. well. how could i say this story in the czech republic is ludicrous i mean 767 years ago russian agents and by the way they must be james bonds because russian shame sponsors because there were you know in solve spring 2018 they were in prague in 2014022 so to score then you know make an explosion that this completely cross frankly this critical case you might think that there is something better because it's fun as counterespionage you know all the asians are both astonished by the brits so it's a story of spots but not to to put them in prague as well and expel 800 diplomats but i mean come on this is really close i have reservations that's personal i have
1:15 pm
reservations about belarus i'm not sure because mr lucas shango might do the same in the sense that he doesn't have much support i think not multi even in moscow and don't it was good for him to say i'm also under attack so at some it's possible it's possible that there is a constituent who because since joe biden isn't applied clearly deep the demonization of russia is based on today by the way there has been a press release by by the european high commissioner said but i'll just say that we are wanted in europe but a phony south you know today today it's one more problem i expect maybe ukraine zelinsky to say something to mind in military government t.v. you know this sounds like demonizing russia you know as much as they can now. as requested by biden's white house that has expelled 10 russian diplomats well i was
1:16 pm
going to say it's hard not to look at the timing some summary on what is happening here you've got the czech republic making its move just days after the u.s. imposed those sweeping new sanctions on last go leading to the question coincidence or no. clearly i don't believe that now but you know i've been a journalist for many many years i don't believe in coincidence now anymore i mean this is this is clearly an orchestrated action by the west they call too much within nato but the has been meeting with the minister of foreign affairs of ukraine coming with the american medicine coming on a lot of talk you know off. recovering to us in kiev we've seen mr selenski who's a nice guy even was very diplomatic to begin with and now suddenly he does like put
1:17 pm
a shunt going towards a military garb on and he's in the transient trenches with the soldiers next to hunts and doing it's coming home at the same time you have this declaration about in a valley at the same time you have explosions of diplomats in in a place like prague i mean and this story about the ammunition depo of the czech army which is not the 1st in nato it's a small army and it's not new clear or dead poles new you know it it's just your mission then is how it is 7 years ago reportedly it's exactly exactly it's ludicrous frankly so for the location code thing i'm not so sure because it's a good way of course for president shanker do to come back in the game and to say oh as being under attack it's possible it's possible but i have still serious doubts about it we'll see what comes up from the from the inquiry and what moscow
1:18 pm
will have to say about the 2 guys who were arrested so that's possible but i have liked us but for the rest clady the worst now is trying to demonize russia over the last 23 weeks or what one of your larger points there it is interesting it isn't that we showed on your screen those those 2 russians that czech police say they're they're looking for and the time of the depo explosion they happened to be same power the u.k. blames for the script nava chalk poisoning the twist the upcoming. you know it will be a very soon. i hope. as always thank you very much for your thoughts and your take always good to hear it independent journalist look of a life from brussels. so i have this hour the founder of an investigative journalism group is blocked on twitter after the team's latest exposé saw a c.n.n.
1:19 pm
director caught on camera admitting his channel spread propaganda about story and more for you to the right. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race in this on off and spearing dramatic development only mostly i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. i strongly believe that. information. will. be. nobody.
1:20 pm
either. show. warships will drown but. i agree let's start with no there will be will be escalation of this. 20 minutes past 8 pm here in moscow welcome back there has been a full week of angry unrest in the u.s. state of minnesota it follows last sunday's fatal shooting by police of dante right right officers have been resorting to tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse protesters. i. i. i i i i.
1:21 pm
i i. i i i. proclaimed center police claimed don't say right died as a result of an accidental discharge after an officer mistook her for a taser and mr wright have attempted to leave this car after being stopped for a traffic violation subsequent protests and descended into looting and violent clashes with police protester also seen in other cities including chicago dallas portland where they police union building all set on fire the scenes are reminiscent of those in the wake of george floyd's death last year who died during
1:22 pm
a rest when an officer knelt on his neck for several minutes radio host wayne dupree has served as a board member of the national diversity coalition for donald trump says it's vital to rebuild trust between police and minority community. tensions are so diode to the left and right the people that are getting hurt or in the middle what's happening right now it's not going to stop is going to get worse because the lead leadership around many places is weak there is a lack of trust on both sides of the aisle. and when i mean both sides and there's a lack of trust with within the police community about what's going on within the minority community and then there's a lack of trust within the minority community about what the police are do. and because of what they see projected on our media every knee there has to be
1:23 pm
a concerted effort from both sides of leadership leadership of people there everybody can try to sit down and work out proven solutions and and take it all types of suggestions and try to work on something and bring the trust back between law enforcement and the communities. into the story we are following twitter this week they founder of investigative journalism grip project at birth else for alleged violations of its policies it came right after the group published another undercover sting video involving a c.n.n. director. a strain of disease eternally featured eat like a people are getting attacked or is it just a picture that you need to try to protect patients. and someone. who was trying to like help like a b.l. every like day like this i mean it's individuals it's not
1:24 pm
a you know. that's like they're the optics of that and i'll get it back we can speak to the fact that this technical director charlie chester he was certainly part of the culture he was speaking as if they were an advocacy group and this is a network that uses the tagline the most trusted name in news does the most trusted name in news you know colluded directly or indirectly with black lives matter that's a question for the american public to ask it seems that the rules that as a society that we all thought were in place are no longer in place there is no more roebuck it is the 3rd undercover scoop published by project for its house this week with more on the other revelations here's artie's done a quarter. the most trusted name in news it's a title c.n.n. has long prided itself on maybe you buy it maybe you don't but what would you think if the network admin did to deliberately spreading propaganda well apparently they did i do. believe that it was.
1:25 pm
but again you are creating a story here we didn't know anything about. that's b.s. i think that he is the worst president we have ever seen but what president trump just said was undemocratic and false the president seems to think that dominating black people dominating peaceful protesters is law and order it's not he calls them thugs who's the thug here this guy is should not be president cnn's charlie chester's spilled the beans over a tender date he was enticed into by an undercover project veritas journalist he claimed the channel long had a pre-determined agenda to get trump out of office one that flows from the top down from none other than c.n.n. president jeff zucker himself naturally trying to make joe biden out to be a spring chicken was the other side of the anti trump propaganda calling yeah i
1:26 pm
mean really we did it right from the start as. i got a noise here shaking or whatever and we brought in like so many medical people so like all tell a story like this is all speculation you know you're shocked to hear john. mccain. you know why. he made you savior she. hated him as a. young. tree. that sounds a lot like election meddling something c.n.n. has pointed the finger at russia for time and time again leaning on unverifiable claims from u.s. intelligence and its reputation as evidence the. in last year's elections the network claimed that moscow was trying to hurt joe biden's chances by spreading conspiracy theories about the now u.s. president i'm talking about russia attacking our election russia once again interfered in the race for the white house russia is indeed interfering in the 2020
1:27 pm
election with that kind of a double standard it should come as no surprise that people's trust for c.n.n. is on the decline but we don't think that this is all the personal attacks just. makes this worse when you're caught red handed hiding the way you do business from your viewers that's one thing but accusing someone else for breaking the very rules you yourself were caught breaking well that's another it's a rinky dink toopid organization what do you want it c.n.n. that scared defense immunized from any responsibility because nobody takes them seriously and as far as project very callous and james o'keefe god bless him but how many exposé these must be produced before something's done things done and nothing jeff zucker still there everybody still there but let me explain simple their ratings are plummeting those who want to watch c.n.n.
1:28 pm
if there's no trunk what do you do talk about what a great job items don't read what a great job camelot harris story i don't think so now me we can't believe what we're seeing and our country is in complete collapse with our borders being destroyed and being invaded daily with a sense of believe a bill distrust with with vaccine an advocacy vaccine malpractise with this anyway and years nothing for them to build up done the years just how intertwined were washington's political elite and hollywood studio bosses are documentary starting in moments shed some light on that aspect of the dream factory to stay close. psychiatric drugs are essential for millions of patients or rather they want that
1:29 pm
pill that they hope will take care of their problem their only and rapidly in the short term they really work the problem is in the long term and mostly disastrous suddenly stopping a drug can cause withdrawal symptoms more serious than the condition it was meant to treat instead of the beneficial effects of these different medicines elling up to something wonderful and very often there are 4 fix it up to something terrible can bill solve all ills or are we trying to medicate life itself i just think i was and like i was just scared i was a scared little girl i was 24 and like. i didn't have to be so complicated. the little thing that hollywood is a very. little is literally defiant well they live in
1:30 pm
the other so it isn't a. new route out of the border. you know mary and. hollywood is the place and an idea so you've got the movie studios television you've got the music industry sometimes as we know it's also a place where there's a lot of propaganda. or whatever part of the the u.s. government is committed you can be sure that hollywood will be following here within 12 months. how would i define harlem which is a caught between a manufacturer which are things true.
