o join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. a blessing with reason says russia won't still pumping gas to europe, sir. ukraine asked the used decision to ditch long term contracts was a costly mistake. while within the e u itself, all kinds of merge at some member states only increasingly seen, read over the eas determination to go green. also the south u. s. parents speaking out against things like critical race, very and mosque wearing, could now be investigated by the end beyond dasanya, the national schools association claims the threats it seemed to mug to the last

big tara i finally thing descend a marine faces potential trial for daring to criticize president biden's up in pull out this fight, another officer being hailed as a hero. 2 years ago for tongue lashing trump. ah wife, her most cruel train on see international with me. you lasher. paolo, thanks for joining us. prison, payton says the e, you made a costly mistake one and decided to ditch long term gas contract. also stressing the brussels as preferred method of gas trading, overlooked some of its critical characteristic characteristics, so that, that is, it can be easily stored like other commodities. other interesting points also came out of a cabinet meeting present. payton held earlier today, aussies eager,
8:02 pm
donna joining my colleague new harvey in the studio to discuss development. well, i guess the whole point of this cabinet meeting, at least to a large extent, was to outline russia's stance in this crisis. letterman couldn't talk to russia's energy minister and basically gave very clear instruction as to the country's actions and how russia will navigate this well this market crisis, because as of now, you've seen the gas prices on the market and well as of now again, it looks like the winter is going to be very, very costly to the end of the line, european consumer. so the russian president, what he did, he called on the minister to seed through that russia remains a loyal partner and doesn't make things any more difficult and pod than they already are. and that the gas prom rushes will national gas export in company that gas from remains a faithful partner as well and follows the contractual obligations strictly
8:03 pm
prevalent, desperately. as she says she, yes, prom believes that it would be more profitable for it to pay a fine to ukraine and increase the gas volume pumping through the new systems. but there's no need for that. there's more pressure in the pipe, less c o 2 emissions into the atmosphere. everything turns out cheaper and at $3000000000.00 a year, it is necessary to fully comply with the contractual obligations for the transit of gas through ukraine. although it is more profitable to sell it on the exchange, but there is no need to buy anyone in a difficult position, including ukraine despite the difficulties in relations. second, there's no need to undermine gas prompts confidence is an absolute reliable partner in all respects. so i think maybe understandably, with gas prices rocketing up, some people in the west, the pointing fingers at russia and, and basically suggestion is that they're exploiting as it's getting colder. and that price gouging that, that they're trying to just milk as for will they can get what to put enough to say rather, well, he didn't say anything about that per se. but he,
8:04 pm
but the fact that he has presented the show that according to the russian officials, according to the russian, didn't realize he could not have been further from well, from the this, the if from this that the truth is very, very different. according to the russian president are well gas from has not only just stuck to its contractual obligations, but in fact it has increased the volume of gas. it is right now pumping to europe through ukraine, and it did not have to do it. there's no obligation on the russian gasser exporting giant gas from to do so. so, so far rush, i'd say has been very understanding and very client oriented. if i may say so. but again, vladimir putin has stress that the aren't running a charity here. close to was be to be to sell off speculative demand and excitement in europe. you propose stock trading. it can be done, but of course this can and should be done. not in a spot in europe, but on an exchange in st. petersburg. but in general, exchange trading is not very effective because it carries a lot of risks. is not
8:05 pm
a watch shorts and ties or a car, or even oil that can be produced and stored anywhere. gas is not sold like that on the market problem being, it seems that they're just on in of contract. people haven't contracted into long term gas supplies. so obviously brush is not going to want to be made out to the bud guy here. what can you do with regards the pricing? well, man, you're absolutely right. and the thing is i, the european lawmakers might have shot themselves in the foot here. and well, of conceptually nukes the wallets of the end of the line consumers of ordinary europeans. so here's, here's the thing about natural gas. it's not oil. you can just, you know, get it one time stored in a barrel until you need it, and then you will access it. no, it doesn't work like that. you can't store natural gas. so what the european lawmakers came up with, they decided that they would switch from contractual from contractual trade when
8:06 pm
they receive a gas steadily throughout the year. at the current market price, they decided that they be buying the gas of the market and they would be doing so in the summer when the demand is very low. so it's essentially dirt cheap, but they would only ask for the, for gas in physical, you're physically receive it in the winter when the well, obviously need this gas. but what the didn't well add into this equation is the fact that the simple pipeline infrastructure is simply not robust enough. it is too old and dated in ukraine. so gas from, even if it wanted it simply can't squeeze this much natural gas in such a short period of time. so lawmakers, they were hoping that russia would be able to pack all this gas that, you know, a year long supply of gas into, you know, the winter months. and it simply doesn't work this way. and of course, the nodes for him to project would have held because the infrastructure is much newer and they can put more pressure into the, into the pipes. but well,
8:07 pm
nordstrom to has been long opposed for political reasons, including by ukraine and poland. well, with a quote with ukraine, the irony is, well, is beyond comprehension here. so, so far, again, russia has been making these steps, increasing the volume. and, you know, vladimir putin has been very understanding and he's been saying that, well, we will do everything in our power, but it has to be beneficial to both the buy and the seller. and to so it's really unclear as to how many more steps and reciprocated russia will take and is ready to take legend. payton also said, ella, today that europe's carbon neutrality could come at russia's expense, but also we are a loony, friendless. can you fight for carbon neutrality if the energy balance in europe, in this case, in germany, in terms of coal generation, is twice as large as in russia? turns out you can at someone else's expense, in this case, they're trying to do it at our expense at the expense of russia. but i hope we will
8:08 pm
build a dialogue taken into account the interests of all parties. it is right in the number and i, i'm french and i know that the germans, i missing a lot of c with 2. and so, yes, and the thing that we need to do is close those coal fired power in germany. and either go into gas or going to nuclear, which determined i do not want. so i mean, the energy transition is a step by step process. and if we do not do it step by step process, if we go back to dogma, then we end up in a property and in a climate disaster. if we want to go through energy transition, the price of energy will be higher and there is no way out of this. and so therefore, we really need to be transparent. these are be our population of people that are citizen at that if we want to fight climate change, we need to put more money in this. and this is something that perhaps russia had
8:09 pm
forgotten or perhaps new, but didn't want to share with the people. and this is where we are here right now. so the natural gas price in europe has caught an all time record is now nearly $6.00 times as high as it was in the spring. as for the continent, on course, for major energy crunch and laid bare internal divisions within the block, as a brussel says green policies as unsafe, peter oliver explains while prices are as high as they are on the commodities market. this isn't so much going to trickle down to consumers as perhaps these prices are gonna fall upon homeowners from a more domestic home uses. form a great height. what we've heard from the european commission president ursula found a lion is that she recognizes that there are major problems that we're facing right now. and problems that are coming down the pipe further along. but says that in the long term, it's renewable energy that are going to keep energy prices low across europe. i
8:10 pm
think we have to be very clear that the gas prices are skyrocketing and her, but the renewables, the prices have decreased over the last years. and are stable so fast is very clear that with energy in the long term, and it is important to invest in renewables. that gives us stable prices and more independence because gas is important. 90 percent of the gas is important to the european union. the renewables we are the master without plans being dismissed out of hand by hunger as prime minister, victor or bon, his country just assigned a new deal with russia to import gas into hungry for the next 15 years. victor or bonds blamed these problems on the european commission saying they have far too many restrictions in place. far too much regulation. and that is what's causing the issues when it comes to buying gas. you must change is policy because partly at least partly the reason why the prices are up is the 4th of the of the commission.
8:11 pm
we have to choose some regulations. otherwise, everybody do suffer the problem for hungary, for the new regulation, rob greenfield, which is an invite expectation or owner owners and part owner or the e. u energy commissioner has warned that prices will most likely continue to rise throughout the winter. won't see any respite until the spring of 2022, just how high prices rise may well come down to something as fickle as the weather . if it's a particularly cold winter, we could well see prices soaring, higher and higher. and what we've also seen though is a number of european countries coming together and saying things half the change, france paying grease, the czech republic and romania, all of their finance ministers signed a joint statement saying that there needs to be a complete overhaul of the way energy is purchased in europe. that isn't going to be a short term solution though. perhaps in the long term it may change something. it's
8:12 pm
not gonna change energy bills this coming winter. what we're also seeing is the european union is saying that they're going to investigate claims that russia is behind attempts to manipulate the gas price that they've been trying to drive up prices. this is something that's been fundamentally denied by the kremlin, the spokesperson for the russian government saying that russian suppliers are living up to the very letter of contracts that have been signed. we insist that russia is playing no role in what is happening on the european gas market that could not happen. russia has fulfilled and will continue to fulfill to the letter all of its obligations on existing contracts. there is one way to get more gas into europe, and that's through the nod stream to gas pipeline, not huge infrastructure projects. construction was completed this summer. however, it's still awaiting the green light in terms of all of the certification and approvals from various agencies before it can stop providing energy. once that does
8:13 pm
get the approval that it's needed, while it could provide as much as 55000000000 cubic meters of russian gas to europe every single year, that's around enough to power $27000000.00 european homes. and it was found in chang and economist and published like a hama about erupt energy crisis. politically, it is would be perfect for. busy the german and energy policy to change to a green policy, but it wouldn't suit all the other european partners because they have a completely different thoughts on germany and their energy supply. for example, the french and they, especially the polish, want to keep the like mailing position for germany. they don't want germany to be energy sufficient or energy independent with russian gas. they would like
8:14 pm
to be to keep a hand on the energy supply for germany. so with an austria to pipeline, the energy supply would be a would be secured and that's why these european partners don't want criminalizing pairing tang, that's the claim being made against a bite and a demonstration in the last and the department of justice concerned criticism of school boys will now be taken final seriously. now for the schools board essay station claimed thrashing received our tantamount to domestic tara. something that provoked outrage among parents for you to dare to tries to smear parents as domestics. harris just reflects just how tone deaf school boards and school administrators have become about the please of parents on behalf of their children. the u. s. attain china wrote
8:15 pm
a letter to the f. b. i and criminal attorneys announcing plans for measures to combat what he called a rise and criminal conduct towards his school pass. now it follows a letter from the national school board association which told of an immediate threat while dealing with issues surrounding a critical race theory and mask mandates. citing several examples, however, critics believe the moves simply designed to suppress opposition voices coupled with attacks against school board members and educators for approving policies for masks to protect the health and safety of students in school employees. many public school officials are also facing physical threats because of propaganda purporting the false inclusion of critical race theory within classroom instruction and curricula. these acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials have increased. the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes. any legitimate violence is
8:16 pm
sufficiently addressed by your local police. the fed was the political police f b. i are the politics police. president biden's latest decision is part of a disturbing trend in the democrat party to silence parents. we should encourage family participation in our schools, not baseless lee attack opposing views because left as groups one control over curriculums, and also contributor lauren chance things that many old accusations on the balls letter have been blown out of proportion. the board's letter does site some specific incidents, but if you actually look at the video footage from those incidents, most of the quote violence that they site is actually things like parents refusing to wear masks at these meetings. a lot of what they side as actually being domestic terrorism or violence actually is just tantamount to some harsh words being said in terms of actual violence. though i believe there's only one or 2 specific incidents that were actually led to an arrest that were mentioned in that letter. i think
8:17 pm
trying to get the f b i involved at all, frankly, just reeks of political activism. instead of actually trying to put students 1st and i think parents are completely justified in seeing this as an attack on their rights as parents, the parents aren't shutting up for now though father saying the attorney general has got a conflict of interest in this case. what do they mean by that? the reason why the age is taking this letter from the school board association. so seriously is specifically because his daughter through marriage has ties to a firm that actually specializes in critical race theory, training or something akin to that. his family potentially might benefit financially from c r t actually being implemented in more and more schools throughout the country. how politicized a school life become these days seems like it's increasingly political. and there have been viral videos that have been leaked of students. sh filming their teacher is going on tirades against tromp systemic racism, america in general. we've even had teachers themselves posing to their social media accounts. i think a lot of parents have started to wake up that no,
8:18 pm
you cannot simply take for granted that in education, the public school system is the same as what was happening when we were younger. u . s. her publicans have a case the military of double standards over m marine facing potential challenges for criticizing the bonding and ministration was planned for off. janice don, it's in stark contrast to another office that it was l. a hailed as a hero for standing up to the trunk administration office. caleb lopez takes a closer look at the 2 cases. $2000000.00 from over $27000.00 different donors. that's how strongly people are feeling. the case of lieutenant colonel sheller. he's facing potential criminal charges over criticizing commanders over the withdrawal from afghanistan. now, his hearing has been delayed until next week, but his family is not very optimistic or we have been told to prepare that it could be a long prison term. sheller was an active duty u. s. marine,
8:19 pm
whose frustration over the bungled retreat from cobble lead to making videos, bashing biden. and the pentagon brass that quickly went viral. people are upset because their senior leaders let them down and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability are saying we mess this up. i'm not saying we've got to be in the in afghanistan forever, but i am saying, did any of you throw your rank on the table? it's a hate. it's a bad idea to evacuate bob graham airfield, the strategic air berries before we evacuate. everyone, i am submitting charges against general mckenzie for his bad assumptions. not because i've been did, but because the senior leaders need to be held accountable to the same standard as us. he's now accused of breaking for laws, though there are not formal charges yet. now sheller is not the 1st military man to raise a voice about issues. lieutenant colonel alexander vin daemon was on active duty when he 1st spoke up against the pentagon. brass,
8:20 pm
he testified at trumps impeachment proceedings as a pentagon whistleblower, he claim the donald trump had made a quid pro quo with the president of ukraine. he was anointed by mainstream media and the democrats as a st. this guy's a hero. this guy is the patriot. one of these 2 men, the president and lieutenant colonel whitman devoted his life to duty and honor. right matters what an extraordinary statement from an immigrant who served this country proudly his entire. now the answers from the white house quickly turned evasive when they faced some tough questions about parallels person vancover tenant colonel alexander vin minute hero, for speaking out against his commander, she even has decided capitol hill in uniform. so how is this different, especially since you just said the president welcomed the candor and the advice of his military adviser. does the president also feel with sheller as a hero?
8:21 pm
i don't have all the details on these circumstances. i understand that can be frustrating to you, um, but we will work to get you an answer on it. republicans are speaking up saying that they see a double standard. if you speak out against the democratic president who get thrown in the brig. but if you're doing something against the republican president, your lord of the hero, this is double standard. lieutenant colonel vinland was celebrated by media while of tenant girls sheller is in prison for demanding accountability on the disastrous withdrawal. both challenged leadership, one was treated as a hero and the other punished. i remember when military leadership wasn't an oxymoron, it's no wonder they can't see the obvious coming anymore. the best bureau cuts on the absolute worst wolf, i says, of the ones that get promoted and make the decisions. military leaders who criticize donald trump got talk, show appearances and book deals treated almost like heroes. while one who just criticized biden is facing a hearing and
8:22 pm
a potentially long term spell behind bars. the going to stay in that we c p, an exercise here today. it's a very dangerous precedent escort or gets the standard by democrats, 1st of all it, but also manifested tremendously by the mass media tends to be predominantly, less leaning in you know, very much and cocker b. o, the democratic party, anything that was an antique trump was hailed and so it's not surprising that anything republican, this is the case with minimum, was, was treated with kid gloves now. and as a consequence, or he gets off scott free having late classified information. the political landscape has certainly evolved from what it was a year ago. democrats are no longer celebrating those with the courage to speak up against those in power. being a hero isn't so much about what you do,
8:23 pm
but who you do it against? kayla mopping artsy, new york in the wake of the pandora paper revelations, us lawmakers are ramping up efforts to crank down on corruption new legislation. jobs they enablers, act is expected to be revealed on friday, is designed to make it harder for american gatekeepers. a gatekeeper state health, corrupt for an officials to hide that inclusion gains on us soil. so pandora pay phase and reveal, well, the international consoles, him of independent journalists, cole and precedents. amount of information on owners then says registered in tax havens. they include over 300 politicians and public officials, as well as over 130 firms, billionaires from 9 to countries. but despite identifying over $1000000000.00 in your space, trust not a single american politician is named in the documents. so the papers did however,
8:24 pm
reveal the presence of tax havens in the us, including south dakota, which is the largest and a handful of other u. s. states such as florida, texas, and delaware, the leak also highlight is the world british overseas territories such as the british virgin islands as tax havens. so the white house reiterated and 2nd amendment to tackling corruption during a press conference back in june. the u. s. government sat, it would place anti corruption and the center, its foreign policy with the intelligence community playing a key role. the work on that front in part remains to be seen, but they are included the director of national intelligence and central intelligence agency. the u. s. government has its own internal methods, but largely the way that corruption is exposed is through the work of investigative journalists and investigative. and jose, there are lines of assistance that have jump started investigatory journalism organizations. what comes to my mind most immediately as o, c, c r p, as well as foreign assistance that goes to and jose, ultimately,
8:25 pm
that do investigative work on anti corruption as well. it's not the 1st time these high profile of releases have contained possible irregularities. the organized crime and corruption reporting project is a consortium investigative centers media and journal is it's one of the i, c, i, and trays. main partners in 2019 that exposed the troika, laundromat, which russian politicians, oligarchs, and criminals allegedly used to funnel billions of dollars. the o c c r p named numerous western banks that allegedly held longer that money, but the hsbc was not initially mentioned in their report, although troika openly named the bank as a partner. investigative journalist, kate's clarion bug shared his views with us. nice question to ask is, well, why here? why, why has the i c i, j a c r p, been released this data, which he had doesn't include any of that on his because this is what people in
8:26 pm
power in washington and maybe other centers of power with the wider us hedge monique system, one a new one in the public domain, and if you look at the, of the role of people and in your individuals and organizations as a pool, does a legit, investigative media outlets. then why on earth would they twine rugby applicant? why would they bite the hand that feeds or c, c o p alone? yeah. did they have the ford foundation? you the rocket foot rockefeller brothers foundation, the u. k. foreign office, your cia friends, national imbalance? democracy in the u. s. a. id, i mean, why on earth would they publish anything in the 1st place that was of discomfort or inconvenient for the governments and, you know, cause i governmental organizations that fund them? the answer is, is they wouldn't, they will absolutely absolutely know what they're not meant not meant to publish what they have just how to set on both organizations have a consistent history of doing new york joint commission on
8:27 pm
public ethics has said it will launch an internal inquiry into its approval of disgraced ex governor andrew cohen was brookdale last year. it was $5000000.00. the commission has voted to approve the retention of independent counsel to conduct inquiry into the legal and procedural operations of the commission. i received a scathing criticism was february when it transpired that the new york authorities had massively under reported the number of her read related deaths in the states nursing homes. it also turned down that over 9000 patients work for prematurely sent months to have facilities leading to accusations that the authorities, accelerators, the spread of the virus coma has continued to deny anyone during assistant director, for voices for seniors. tracy albino told us that the in bottles, governors, initial response to the printer was promising when it 1st started and he
8:28 pm
was giving these reports and he was using the powerpoint slides. i was like, wow, he's actually doing a really good job of handling this. but now, given what we now know, i look and i say, you know what? in the beginning when coven emerged in new york, she was telling us to go out, you know, don't panic, panic is worse than the virus. and then at the last minute he panicked and he made really, really poor decisions. so i think that if he acted sooner, i'm going to go out on a limb here and say not only would we have a lot more people alive, but maybe we could have contained it in new york and it wouldn't have spread to the rest of the united states, i think that he should apologize 1st of all and admit what he's done wrong. you know, it's bad enough that he sexually harassed these women. and that's what he went down for ultimately. but at least these women are alive. are family members a for us,
8:29 pm
grieving, nursing home families, their, their dad, they're not coming back. so number one, he should apologize. number 2 is you give every said that he made up his book to his many, many victims. and number 3, what i hope and he won't voluntarily he do this, but i hope he ends up in prison. what he's done. and he is my law. american crisis . leadership lessons from the covey. 19th and demick. como shy has what he calls his hon. one lessons in leadership, the book deal which allowed como to profit from its sale was allegedly never put to vote. and the public ethics commission that's reportedly according to several board members and other prob, looking into whether the ex governor use state funds to produce the book is ongoing . and he is tracy alvina. again, this whole entire investigation feels like one big show to me. no, yes, it's commission already allowed homo to keep the $51000000.00 he made off of his
8:30 pm
blood money. but the lies. so frankly, i don't see the point in having the at the commission investigating cells. no, i want to try to be optimistic. and on its face, it's a small victory, and it's a step that browser earlier, but i'm a realist in a month encouraged by this move foremost book. once again, it is a blood money book of lies, and it was written on the graves of over $16000.00 innocent senior citizens. and it's not only reason to write a book on how you convert a pandemic in the middle of a pandemic. but it's still rate evil. actively omit jess from public health record to make money off of a book deal to my father's death may have been an inconvenient number that he left on the report to get a 5000000 dollar book deal. but to me, my father was my whole world air up to date and join us for more news and about 30
