hi leslie, on my bill again for mat, you know, it, money laundering is highly legal. dokie cookies watch has a report with miss alice help headlines here on our team and european households a hit by soaring bills that made rec hold. natural gas prices are rusher. is a key supplier, and president putin has vile to keep the gas flowing through ukraine while criticizing the e, you'd move to long term contract. try to smear parents as domestic carries just swiss francs. just how tone death, school boards, us parents speaking out against mosque wearing out into critical race theory could soon be investigated by the f. b i. after the national school boards claim,
2:01 am
the threat that sits received at the ton to mount domestic, tara, also an ethics commission to new york launch is a probe into its own decision to allow former governor andrew cuomo to re can $5000000.00 for his book about the pandemic on the program, we hear from the daughter of a care home resident who died in the states covered crisis. this whole entire investigation feels like one big show to meet our family members. a for us leaving nursing home families. there they're dead, they're not coming back. bus is exactly now 20 years since the u. s. coalition invaded afghanistan, swiftly removing the taliban, only to see them back in power after the war ended with the country now and an economic insecurity meltdown. families are resorting to drastic measures when your stomach is empty, you can't think about the dark side. so i'm forced to sell a few of my kids to feed others. there is no option left
2:02 am
with 9 am on october. the 7th period. moscow and already a big mix of your top headlines, who are naughty, international welcome to the program, i'm rural research. so europe is in the grip of a full blown energy crisis, with natural gas prices soaring to an all time record household's already feeling the impact right ahead of the winter season. ah,
2:03 am
now it is worth mentioning here that russia is europe's biggest gas supply up and president putin has said the current shortage is partially down to the ear uses mistakes. he accused brussels of short sightedness for insisting on a switch from long tom gas contracts to that of spot trading. what does that all mean or little hobby discussed all of it, with ortiz eco to stand off. 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,
2:04 am
it looks like the winter is going to be very, very costly to the end of the line. european consume him. 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, ex putting company that gas from remains a faithful partner as well and follows the contractual obligations strictly prevalent, desperately. as she does, she has 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 put anyone in a difficult position,
2:05 am
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 the trying to just milk, as for will they can get what to put enough to sever the thing is i, the european lawmakers might have shot themselves in the foot hair. and well, of conceptually nukes the wallets of the aligned consumers of ordinary europeans. so his is the thing about natural gas. it's not oil, you consciousness, 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 is to was be to speak to self 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 the spot in europe,
2:06 am
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 a watch shorts and ties or a car or even oil that can be produced in store anywhere. gas is not sold like that on the market. so what the european lawmakers came up with, they decided that they would switch from contractual from contractual trade when they receive a gas steadily throughout the year. at the current market price, they decided that they would be buying the gas of the market and they would be, 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 they, well, obviously need this gas, but what they didn't well add into this equation is the fact that the simple a pipeline infrastructure is simply not robust enough, it is too old and dated in ukraine. so gas from,
2:07 am
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 stream to project would have held because the infrastructure is much new and they can put more pressure into the, into the pipes. but well, 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 so it's really unclear as to how many more steps and reciprocated russia will take and is ready to
2:08 am
take. it could have been that prevent that, i think at, i think we understood that in may, june, july, that we, the economy is starting to recover. we've yeah, but if you did that then to live with it, we needed more than if the european commission came out to public a thing where we need more gas and we will if the fresh total percent or market dominance. i think a put, you know, and the gap from way to have a look at the price and i believe they would have pushed more gas in europe. and so therefore, we wouldn't be in such a dire situation today. the energy crunch is exposed divisions within the u over green policies. the hungarian prime minister has blamed soaring cost on an oval reliance on renewables. we spoke with job and economist and publisher. i
2:09 am
believe it is would be perfect for. busy the german and energy policy to change to a green policy, but it wouldn't suit all of the other european partners because they have completely different thoughts on germany and their energy supply. for example, the french and especially the polish want to keep the mailing position for germany. they don't want germany to be energy efficient, energy independent with russian gas. they would like to be to keep the hand on the energy supply for germany. so with in austria to pipeline the energy supply would be a, would be secured. and that's why these european partners don't want educational authorities in the united states are asking the government. so use
2:10 am
antique tara lows and involve the f, b i against parents who protest against the way that children are being taught. the national school boards association sent an open letter to the biden administration . 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 for you to dare to tries to sneer 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 with us, attorney general has stepped in writing to the f. b, i on criminal attorneys and announcing plans to combat what he called a disturbing spike and harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against school personnel. my colleague niel harvey i spoke
2:11 am
with ot contributor lauren chin who things, but many of the accusations have just 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. oh, keep a com no, no, no. do you need to pay for the boat critical race theory, which is pretty much will be teaching to how to hate each other? how do i, at these meetings, a lot of what they cite 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 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
2:12 am
rights as parents, as a result, shutting up for now though for the same the attorney general's got a conflict of interest in this case. what do they mean by the, 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, you cannot simply take for granted that in education the public school system is the same as what was happening when we were younger. recently, dozens of parents of lauren's campaigns against kobe restrictions and the teaching
2:13 am
of a subject called critical race theory is led to angry protest targeting school board officials, who they accused of violating their children's rights everything. we spoke with a pro chapman who is a mother to 4 children in the us state of georgia. she says, many parents have simply had enough in today's culture, it's the government think they, they, they believe what is proper and right. and what should your children should be taught? and so parents are experiencing a very difficult time trying to, in that change in their local communities as it relates to what's being caught in the government school. people are starting to wake up and they're starting to recognize that wait a minute. this is not the public education system that i am familiar with, or that i grew up in. and it's time for me to take my head of the fan and caught up, hey attention to what's going on because they don't like what's being propagated and pushed and down. frankly,
2:14 am
it's downright indoctrination to what their children are experiencing when they go to school and they're supposed to be will learning violence is never acceptable. so it, there are instances where parents are crossing the line and threats turn into physical violence. been absolutely, those incidences should be handled on the basis of their own individual merit, but that's not what we see happening here. they're taking one or 2 isolated in some instances and trying to make it seem as if parents who are be humanly opposed to what's being caught to their children in a government school. a former new york governor andrew cuomo was under yet another investigation. this time from the states public ethics commission over its own approval of his book on the pandemic. a cuomo who, who's missteps, i should say a blame for thousands of copa deaths in care homes is set to make $5000000.00 from the memoir. and the daughter of one of those k hm. victims gave us a response to the commissions announcement. the commission has voted to approve the
2:15 am
retention of independent counsel to conduct inquiry into the legal and procedural operations of the commission. this whole entire investigation feels like one big show to me. you know, the ethics commission already allowed homo to keep the $5100000.00 he made off of his blood money book of lies. so frankly, i don't see that point and having the ethics commission investigating cells, i want to try to be optimistic and on its face it's a small victory. and it's a step that browser that a lot earlier. but i'm a realist in a month encouraged by this move, our family members a for us leaving nursing home families, their, their dad, they're not coming back. so number one, he should apologize. number 2 is she give every said that he made all his book to his many, many victims, and number 3, what i hope and he won't voluntarily, he should do this, but i hope he ends up in prison. what he's done, cuomo is
2:16 am
a book the religious one of a series of scandals involving the former governor. he resigned in late august, often numerous allegations of sexual misconduct. how earlier in the pandemic, the governor was praised for his decisive action to prevent the spread of covert. but in february it, most of the new york authorities had massively under reported deaths in nursing homes. it turned out that over 9000 patients had been prematurely sent back to care facilities, leading to thousands of preventable infections. i, tracy albino again, things quo, most lucrative book deal just adds insult to injury. in the beginning, when cold it emerged in new york. she was telling us to go out, you know, don't panic, panic is worse than the virus. and then the last minute he panicked and he made really, really poor decisions. he hasn't been held accountable yet. his resignation as governor is not accountability. and as nursing on families, not only want answers,
2:17 am
but he needs to be held accountable. what he's done, he's destroyed our lives foremost book. once again, it is a blood money buck 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 conquered a pandemic in the middle of a pandemic. but it's still right 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 off the report to get a 5 $1000000.00 book deal. but to me, my father was my whole world today marked 20 years since the u. s. on his allies invaded afghanistan, toppling the taliban regime. and now in the wake of the western pullout, many questions are still being asked, not least, why the taliban to offer to hand over osama. bin laden was rejected by the bush administration. and that, of course, let her 2 decades of war lives lost,
2:18 am
and at the end of it all the militants back in charge ortiz at murdock. as dave now reports from kabul on the cost of this war, the afghan born and is just shy of it's it's 20th anniversary, the, the war, a vengeance that was launched by the united states. as revenge for 911 and quickly morphed into something else. one of the most protracted conflicts in modern history, an exercise in a nation building before losing all lame and tylenol towards the end. neither the united states nor any of its allies still knew what it is that they hoped to achieve. here, the end result at his ease that it was unanimously considered an abject failure. metallic banners is back in control. and more absolutely than it was before the united states invaded afghanistan. and the question that we're hearing now in the
2:19 am
holds of congress in parliament, in europe, and in the press and that in there on television, internationally is, is who the we blame. we need to consider some uncomfortable truth that we did not fully comprehend. the depth of corruption and poor leadership and nursing arrange that we do not grass a damaging effect of frequent and unexplained rotations by president ghani of his commanders. and that we fail to fully grasp why there was only so much for which and for home men of the afghan forces would fight. this has been a 10 year malt, i, administration, drawdown. not a 19 month or 19 day neo. these scandal is nowhere near over the americans, a calling it's been ghazi on steroids, the republicans as well as ordinary americans that she, the end of the war is humiliating for america. they want someone held responsible the bible and miss administration as well as the pentagon. so far they have done
2:20 am
their best to absolve themselves of all accountability for what many americans again see as a catastrophe. they argue that the fault is with many american administrations that, that preceded them. and that is ignoring the tremendous financial cost of the war. 7 some that could have made the lives of americans and many of their allies at the taxpayers so much better and so much easier. ah ah ah, ah ah.
2:21 am
you're the wealthiest country in the history of the world, and yet we have the highest child poverty rates of almost any country on earth from the perspective of a civilian. there is scott evidence here on the ground in afghanistan of any of that money, other making its way here. aside from half finished clinics, him and broken roots, testament to record breaking levels of corruption that, that so brilliant siphoned off into the bank accounts of corrupt officials into the pockets of private contractors. though the evidence of these billions being here is in the hands of the taliban, the guns that they wield, stamped with made in america, the vehicles military vehicles left behind it,
2:22 am
industrial quantities. the taliban are of course jubilant. they have dismantled everything that the united states built here with human rights, the tolerance, the democratic institutions, and the matter of weeks. and they are jubilant. they have off to 20 years of, and selection and rebellion, believe they won. mm . by virtually any measure, this war was a failure. in some respects, it even made things worse. from a humanitarian perspective or a 3rd of afghans near enough, are on the verge of starvation, with no hope inside the drugs manufactured and export to that of, of gustavo,
2:23 am
kill countless youth world wide. from a geopolitical perspective, the taliban considered an international pariah since its inception. is now having to be negotiated with it. i counted with even a, the un bob from a security perspective. yes, al qaeda either ghana stud may have been degraded but, but something worse has taken its place in that is isis which has bound to the challenge to afghanistan, dominance by the taliban. in the mean time, afghanistan's banks have almost run out of cash and people are running out of food less than 2 months after the taliban take over. and foreign aid is in short supply with western donors, reluctant to deal with a new government and various aid groups, a warning of a major humanitarian crisis. and i know this is not easy with a needs to be some solution to the financial flows into afghanistan to ensure that
2:24 am
at least salaries can be paid and that essential supplies, power, and water being 2 of them can be procured. the absence of that will seriously exacerbate vulnerability for ordinary outcomes or severe hardship. and afghanistan has prompted some people to take desperate measures. we spoke to one man who tried to sell his kids in order to feed his other kids. they go up to cambridge anxious to get, had a good business and a happy life and could do so. but then the war began, we migrated here, my savings were exhausted formula and some people got some aid here. i got it, but the others did not. my pockets are empty now and i have no option left but to sell some of my kids and to fight for the survival of my other kids with the money i get that way. we get him to make him a patient. when your stomach is empty, you can't think about the dark side sellers of energy. i'm forced to sell a few of my kids to feed others. there's no option left from the previous government did not help me,
2:25 am
but i hope this new one will support me. i'm not asking for support for myself alone, but for all these people living here like they are all from my tribe, my name is all of us refugees. here are one family. i asked for financial help for everyone who has yoko money for senior russian prison officials have been fired and a criminal probe has now been launched off the videos appeared on line, showing inmates apparently being raped and tortured. a short time ago. i discussed all this with ortiz, dmitri polk. well, the russian prison service has announced that it is fired for of its employees in the seraph region. after videos emerged on line, showing the elected torture and sexual abuse of inmates in one of the prisons in that region. now, earlier this week, a team of investigators was sent to the region. so 1st of all, confirmed the authenticity of these videos and 2nd of all, to open criminal cases against anybody who might have actually had a hands in these violations. the federal. busy penitentiary service has said it
2:26 am
will bring to justice. anybody who had anything to do with this abuse the videos themselves, however, were released by an organization called glock. that net as an organization dedicated to protecting the rights of inmates throughout russia's prison system. and apparently they have some 40 gigabytes of videos. busy and other materials, allegedly showing the arabian abuse of inmates throughout several russian prisons across several years. ortiz actually spoke with the head of the organization with him or a session. and here his comments on the ongoing investigation. well, we managed to identify almost all the perpetrators now lawyers and investigators will work with them. there will be more than 10 criminal cases based on those horrific scenes. among them was the head of security. the facility who gave the orders to filmed the torture and was told to have the footage over to the federal penitentiary service. in fact, that head of security, that session was talking about was one of those 4 people that were announced to have been fired in terms of victims. at this point, we know that there have been investigations opened in so that these 4 victims,
2:27 am
however, some 14 other current and former inmates have come out and said that they or were also the victims of all this abuse. now of course, this whole situation has received a lot of attention throughout the internet, and of course the kremlin has also responded a grand spokesperson to me the bas golf. as i said earlier this week, that these videos are serious allegations and demand a thorough investigation. and that if all these videos are indeed confirm to be authentic and true, that criminal cases would be opened up against anybody who had a hand in this of violence and abuse in abuse of power. you can click on the russia section of archie, dot com, to learn more about that story for dmitri power. of the meantime, though, we got lots of headlines still to come here when odyssey international. when we were ton at the top of me,
2:28 am
the policy makers, the veterans, are bank and joe biden. the present. thanks. america is so freaking stupid that they can make them believe that picking up a worthless shiny round object. and going hocus pocus over it magically turns it into a trillion dollars that that again, can deposit that the, at the federal reserve or that treasury to somehow mitigate that $300000000.00 debt crisis. imagine picking up a future textbook on the early years of the 21st century. what are the chapters cold gun violence, school shootings, homelessness 1st, it was my job and then it was my family didn't was my savings. i have nothing. i have nothing and it's not like i don't trust. i look for resources, i look for jobs,
2:29 am
i look for everything i can to make this pass. and i end up doing is passing the road to the american dream, paved with dead refugees at this very idealized image of our america, native americans look past the deaths that happen every single day. this is a modem. history of the usa by america. oh nati ah oh,
2:30 am
well come to the alec salmon. sure. will we examine the long term economic consequences of corporate watch. economic study has been focused on the dramatic acute impact of the pandemic. the collapse in world trade in g. d. p followed by a storm recovery in many economies and a continuing struggle of many administrations to balance health priorities with sustaining economic activity. given them mixed results much work to produce better policy outcomes remains to be done. however, to economists on either side of the planets have also been focusing on the longer term human economics of corporate. to day, we examine the work of new zealand economist, dr. richard, meet. i, professor, debit banged flora of dartmouth college in the united states. richard me as a research fellow in economics, awkward university of technology and principal economist of cognitive economic insight. he's brought forward a policy initiative of corporate family loans,
