8:01 pm
this whole story is connected with the escalation of sanctions prussia and it's exactly 20 years in the u. s. coalition invaded afghanistan and with the country now in mel down families are having to resort to unthinkable measures. when your stomach is empty, you can't think about the dark. sorry. i'm forced to sell a few of my kids to feed others. there's no option luncheon with whole life or moscow. you chewing on scene to national with me, you lash apollo. thanks for joining us. on facebook, whistleblower is the accused of bias us. it was discovered she has ties to the democrats. it comes just days off of she said the company was harming children and stoking divisions and impassioned plea to congress for
8:02 pm
a crackdown on the social media giant. but i'm here today because i believe facebook's products harm children, stoked division and week in our democracy. the company's leadership knows how to make facebook and instagram saver a won't make the necessary changes because they have put their astronomical prophets before people. congressional action is needed. they won't solve this crisis without your help. and frances, how get nase being represented by a co founder whistle blow aid john ty, who himself is a former official, and the obama administration. the are the co founder of the organization, which helps whistleblowers with legal aid is mark said he was a legal representative for alexander vin mind. the white house staffer who, spunk trans, fast impeachment, while small, it turns out, frances hogan has been regularly donating to democrat affiliated organizations or working to get more democratic candidate selected throughout the us. and now mox
8:03 pm
blumenthal editing chief of the grey zone, told us how can is looking for great and government regulation of social media. her testimony dovetails very closely with the democrat censorship agenda. their plan or their desire to heavily sensor social media and to take out their political adversaries, but also their advancement of the national security state's own censorship agenda to target the media of official enemies. to target any media that contravenes imperial us goals or advances, what's considered misinformation which can be advanced by any one. francis halligan was pushing that agenda, and yes, she is represented by bryson gillette. a public relations firm founded by a former obama aid. it's providing her with strategic communications advice,
8:04 pm
and that very same aid is a, an advisor to the center for humane technology, which she has worked at in which has been taking on facebook. so she's not as a, an actual whistleblower. she is a political operative advancing a cohesive agenda around by looks lanka. it's not just the democrats that have taken a stand against facebook at the own of congress. seems to have taken a unified stance not definite. his testimony benefit the republican caused a i think of, you know, it could, it could benefit multiple causes, you could see it benefiting the religious. right. that doesn't like the kind of semi pornographic content on instagram and the way it degrades women of feminist could get behind it. but behind it all is a much more insidious agenda that how going outlines she has explicitly called for bass, beefing up facebook counter espionage team to take on official enemies. she named
8:05 pm
me and mar ethiopia, which is a new target of u. s. empire as well as iran and china. she did not refer to facebook, king with any u. s. allies to carry out malicious activities. and that counter espionage unit is actually part of a facebook's threat intelligence division led by ben nimmo, who has been prolific in whipping up the threat of so called russian bots and russian meddling through facebook. so this is an extension of the narrative we've been hearing since the russia gate saga began. more impact, say a thing her testimony will have on social media regulation, if any. she just wants more government intervention. so i think the impact we're going to see going forward is more censorship, more intervention from the intelligence services, and the reorientation of these social media sites to target official

8:07 pm
united states nor any of its allies, still knew what it is that they hoped to achieve. here, the end result that is is that it was unanimously considered an abject failure. but taliban is, 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 halls of congress, in parliament, in europe, and in the press and 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 in her senior ranks. 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. many of the afghan forces would fight. this has been

8:11 pm
ah, i 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 galveston, 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, i'll card that you'd have gotten a stud, may have been degraded but, but something worse has taken its place and that is isis which has bound to the

8:16 pm
of the goals being pursued. it is possible that his whole story is connected with the escalation of sanctions prussia, uniglobe. ah, we wanted to do a joint investigation and what do you think the technical secretariat began to drag out the whole thing? one of the excuses was that there were no similar incidents from the u. k. all the u. s. were putting forward a counter request within the same framework and expect that from sweden and the technical secretariat will never less on the same questions that we asked earlier. we close this subject with a request from 45 countries and sent a counter request. the bowl is on their side. ah autos kristin, some nato countries of working with substances called navi chalk. i recall the statements of the check president who said in his country there were laboratories where work is carried out with the substance called a 23. 0, which can be attributed to navi chuck, the pretty sight admitted that in their potent down laboratory work was carried out

8:18 pm
a ah with move when i was showing the wrong one 03. just don't move. any world the easiest to shape out. disdain becomes the attitude and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves world warren, we choose to look for common ground. ah, welcome back. don't seem to national boiling gas prices have been reduced to more
8:19 pm
of a similar after intervention from vladimir putin who said russia will ramp up exposed to europe addressing the continents energy crisis. on wednesday, the president added that moscow would continue. it's commitment to ukraine in regards to gas transit. a solicitation as prom believes that it would be more profitable for it to pay a fine t a crate 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 under $3000000000.00 a year. it is necessary to 40 comply with the contractual obligations for the transitive 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, as no need to undermine gas prompts confidence is an absolute reliable partner. in
8:20 pm
all respects latina, payton's statements and their subsequent lots happened. the gas prices have been at some in mainstream. meet it, change that tone to will as they know stream to pipeline. and more generally, on russia's role as europe's kate energy supply concerns of moscow alleged tends to use i, o, and gas as leverage, have lessened significantly at russia, wants it to be approved. but i don't think much is really doing anything wrong here . you know, europe has a supply crunch. russia has the gas to supply it. russia does instantly benefit from care for the market. they want high stable prices and they want to be seen as the reliable partner, some words soothing words, i guess which we rarely get from mr. potent actually helped reverse that. 3540 percent jump over night in natural gas over in europe. desson element off of
8:21 pm
russia playing politics, but there's also an element of a lot of money having been invested in noise being to notice from the russian side from the european side as well and outgoing german chancellor angler michael has been vocal in support of russia to sublime wagner speaking at an e u. balkan summit in slovenia. rous transit most goes always to doctors contractual obligations. the following is our gift. if you ask me whether there have been orders that russia has taken and then fail to fulfill as it stands. now, that is not the case varies. there are no orders that russia has said no, we will not deliver those to you, and we are not pumping gas through their crenan pipeline. rather, russia can only fulfill orders that have been contract it out. so the questions really isn't of being ordered. the russian leader also put the current crisis in the european gas monkey down to the use rush to push for a green transition, coupled with brussels decision to switch from long term gas contracts to an immediate spoke trading the current. all a tendency con,
8:22 pm
betrays bank to april this year, but it all came to a head this week, leaving european citizens to delve yet deeper into already on the train pockets. ah. maintaining a trusted energy partnership between russia and europe is a key focus on international gas forum taking place in st. petersburg. now it's day
8:23 pm
3 of the gathering and our correspondent alia betron gary's back on the sidelines on leave. and he caught up with the c. o, o b, association of european businesses, tunzia shilling. in the end, a pragmatism prevailed. it also showed that the interests of different stakeholders need to be taken into account. there is no sense in insisting on a, on one perspective and denying the to the fact that others view a project differently you need to sit together. so we'd also showed the need for international cooperation the, the fact that now the stalemate has been overcome. and that we have avoided a complete blockage of the project is actually very good news. as europe, as a c, as a station of european businesses. we've also always been very clear that we are against
8:24 pm
the application of sanctions, especially in an extra territorial perspective that we think this is a purely commercial project. and we also think that the european energy security, something that should be decided in europe natural gas has an actually tremendous role to play as a transition shoe. we are here talking now about the traditional fuel makes that we need to move away from and move to greener, her energy sources. but there is also a way how we need to bridge this process between a status that is the current status and, and out of future desires status. in the wake of the gas price, sergio spain has said the european commission should negotiate gas contracts on behalf of o e u. member states that instead of the present system of individual nations, the green contract,
8:25 pm
the proposal government is making is that the you commission negotiates on behalf of all 27 members states. what we propose is a strength and co operation. however, not everyone's happy with the traits proposal with critic saying it encroaches on this sovereignty of national states. alternative for germany party emma p guna back belize. this scheme would run counter to the use own current roles. it clearly contravene article $194.00 of the eel treaties. there is a very bad habit on the part of the war. institutions themselves, as well as many benefit states to disregard its own goal. they think their national interest justifies a breach of the treaty. they don't hesitate to ask others, disregard the treaty. now as a purely hypothetical scenario,
8:26 pm
if the treaty didn't dis allied would i support this proposal? what it depends on the perspective isn't necessarily sensible for a country to shy its energy supplies with everyone else. this pretty little sort of data t on the power to bother you repeat countries with germany generally. so i'm not sure what the solution. on the other hand, what is the german government likely to because it ever has any regard fritz, a country's national interest. it's quite conceivable that the german government will choose to disregard the treaty and do what isn't in its own country's interest . why has had a delegation to nathan nearly hogged with the lines of paring vague and offering
8:27 pm
reasons why, you know, it's diplomats from bond from its principles. h. k. moscow says the move shows, nate has clearly not interested in improving relations on please don't call to has mom nato made that decision to expel those 8 russian diplomats on wednesday. and so why was this diplomatic mission cut in half? well, according to nato, no reason in particular, this decision is not linked to in the, a particular events of esau undeclared, russian intelligence officers, ah, on the, on the we have seen an increase in ocean malign activities. sky news said that these diplomats were suspected of espionage and even suspected of killing people. i mean is quite a 180 from nothing. in particular, right now the kremlin has responded. danny shock this moved by nature surprised us, but it was not an expected. we were shocked face impertinence because there were no official explanations of the reasons behind it. at the same time,
8:28 pm
the campaign started on social media, a smear campaign characterized by number fakes, and straight up disinformation, voice from the side of nita. now, russia's foreign minister as sir galen rob did have a talk with stolen berg about convening the nato. russia council for talks, but so far nothing's been agreed on. so we're gonna have to see how relations go from here. and that brings us up to date. her sour john, as for lauren hughes and setting it up next, it's been bused with these are the full people who pulled the trigger. i survived something on survival . one of the hardest things that i had to face was not having
8:29 pm
a face. i had a low expectation, a life i accepted death. i accept the fact that i made that work. we had no fears. dow change pre fashion, 4 shots, different stories behind the bullets. oh is your media a reflection of reality? ah, in a world transformed what will make you feel safer? isolation, whole community. are you going the right way? where are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true? what is great? in the world corrupted, you need to descend. ah. so join us in the depths.
8:30 pm
will remain in the shallows, imagined picking up a future textbook on the early years of the 21st century. what are the chapters cold? gun violence, school shootings, homelessness? first, it was much and it was myself. it was my savings. i have nothing. i have nothing. it is not like i don't trust, i look for resources, i look for jobs, 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. it's this very idealized image of older america makes americans look past the deaths that happen every single day . this is a modem. history of the usa. my america cannot see.
