3:00 am
ah, ah ah, hidden treasures, the secret financial dealings of hundreds of the world's richest and most powerful people are revealed in the biggest ever league of offshore data by the united states itself has emerged as a leading tax haven. also this our with an energy crisis leading over europe and skyrocketing gas prices, the member states point the finger of blame, brussels green politics and also russia and fury in austria, half, or an afghan refugee there. he rate a 7 year old girl is sensitive to just 10 months behind bars and given parapet. ah,
3:01 am
hello there you watch night international this monday morning where she's gone 10 o'clock here in the russian capital. now opening a pandora's box and you expose a han tax havens has shown how some of the world's richest to try to hide their wealth, the leak of financial data. his one of the biggest in history and even reveals high world leaders stash their cash in secretive offshore companies. gone quarter, gave more details to call him bright. people definitely were anticipating something as big as what happened to 2016 when the pat, when the panama papers were released. but actually this one hasn't made as much noise. the guardian sure had a click bady, a picture of vladimir putin's face right at the front of its article, even though in the pandora papers vladimir putin was not even named as. so that's a bit a bit interesting. but the investigation primarily deals with more or less obscure people. i mean,
3:02 am
we have some examples being the king of jordan. so offshore properties, personal properties, the purchase of several theatres, by the general director of russia's channel one he was said to have been a silent partner in this operation. but he's already commented publicly that he hasn't concealed anything about his business dealings in connection to this. one higher profile mentioned though, the ukranian president vladimir zalinski in 2019 he was elected and most in large part on his platform of promising to rid the country of corruption. and ukraine is notoriously, hasn't a problem with corruption. and according to this investigation, he actually transferred 25 percent of his stake in a foreign at an offshore company to his personal friend who is now the top presidential advisor. so, so far he hasn't commented on that seems a little bit shady, but no confirmations. usually when we think of tax havens right, i mean, you think of maybe a financial center like hong kong or some sort of obscure caribbean island. but the pandora papers actually paint a very different picture. they're showing that they,
3:03 am
they actually revealed that south dakota has become the new hotspot for tens of millions of dollars that used to be in offshore accounts in the caribbean and europe. and this is despite of jo biden's promise to no combat corruption. earlier this year to day i'm issued a national security study memorandum of the fight against corruption to establish competent corruption as a core us national security interest. the united states will lead by example. and in partnership with allies, civil society ended the prior sex as to far this courage of corruption good effect, delaware, wherein mister biden hales from i've got some pretty good, the tax breaks for companies, them they. so if his big platform is to deal with tax evasion, as many leaders do, what are the americans on this list? well, it's a good question. they're basically not there. i mean, we hear report after report, obviously about like a lot of american businessman and big corporate corporate owners evade avoiding taxes. and yet this report for some reason only mentions
3:04 am
a couple of very obscure american billionaires that i personally never heard of. and so, yeah, the, the big question is, you know, where are all the big american names? i mean, what about the richest man in the world? jeff bezos, his company, amazon paid 0 dollars and 0 cents and federal income tax. not just in 2020, but also in 20182017. you must paid also 0 dollars and 0 cents and federal income tax in 2018 donald trump paid $750.00 back in 2017. so it seems a bit fishy, that there, there might be nothing important or of value to mention about these offshore assets . now we also did hear from whistle blower, edward snowden. he let out a tweet about the report on this leak. so let's take alice, the humorous side of this very serious story is that even after 2 apocalyptic offshore finance law firm leaks, those industries are still compiling vast databases of ruin and still secure them with a posted note mark, do not leak hats off to the source this is just the beginning of these sir reports,
3:05 am
and these leaks about these pandora papers. more of them are promised for the coming weeks, so we're gonna have to keep an eye out for them. let us be ahead there. the usa to south dakota has emerged a new destination for wealthy paypal to avoid tax lo, experts we spoke z say that they are not surprised. the very thing that the united states criticized switzerland in the past for it is now doing the famous numbered accounts. look, the real lesson here is, if you will allow the distribution of wealth and income to be as only equal as it now is in the world to day. you create the incentive and the means for those that the top to continue to accumulate from one generation to another. there's an amazing tax evasion taking place around the world. and there's also a lot of unaccounted, unaccountable capital sloshing around the world. you know,
3:06 am
using various off shore havens and, and governments tolerate this and, and banks make a lot of money off this. and the us, by the way, it is itself a major tax haven. it's a incorporation laws are among the easiest in the world. so the u. s. is actually our crime participant and this kind of a really crazy, monstrous no tax avoidance. now, europe is on the brink of an energy crisis. is prices continue to hit record highs . that one, gym and electricity producer even shut down its power plant simply because there is no more coal. and with winter looming, the ross, i sure to tease to of natural gas across the you with more now i'm had the block is managing the situation. his shot at kapinsky. there is
3:07 am
a lot of finger pointing going on as the block faces this unprecedented energy crisis. that winter crunch is looming and according to some, this is a problem that has been years in the making. let's have a look at some of the main issues across europe at the moment. and we'll start here in france, where there has been a price increase this month of 12.6 percent in gas tariffs that follows several months of other rises. the prime minister shall cast excess, they will not be a freeze and they will not be any more increases. but of course, that doesn't mitigate the months of increases that people have already seen on their household bills. then in spain, where the price is, they have tripled in the last year. i mean, we know that the spanish government is made emergency measures to try and mitigate the worst impact on the pool. but small business unions are just saying, this is an impossible situation. coming after the cobit crisis. businesses just
3:08 am
cannot take any more. and then in italy, prices a sector. so by 40 percent, the italian government is announced to package over 3000000000 euros to try and aid that. and then in germany, we also heard last week that one, the power plant had to completely shut up shop. and it's not the 1st time at all to do the same a number of times in september. why? well, because it couldn't get enough coal. this crisis when it comes to natural gas, has pushed more people towards buying coal, depleting those stocks as well. so it seems like this is a double whammy. so what's behind this looming catastrophe? well that you cannot agree on that, but some member states see that this is a problem that he was cause itself because it's pushed too fast too quickly to move to greener energy and at the same time as moved away from fossil fuels. and
3:09 am
essentially what it done is, is left the entire book exposed in the g price is currently soaring across the u, and putting unprecedented pressure on both energy companies and all our citizens. when designing energy and climate policies, we have to ensure their social acceptability. otherwise we risk their failure. well the e u flatly denies their sit with checks and it says actually this crisis shows that the problem is there is too much dependence in the you all know fossil fuels. and the reality is that the only way to mitigate crises like this in the future is to move harder and faster towards green energy instead of being paralyzed. those slowing things down because of the price hike though in the energy sector, we should speed things up in the transition to renewable energy. so the affordable renewable energy becomes available for everyone. when i say e, u is scratching its head over what to do. it's also looking potentially for a scapegoat, and some have suggested that russia is to blame for this crisis, saying that it is holding back on natural gas reserves. russia says that's not the
3:10 am
case. in fact, russia says it's willing to step up to the hour of need of it to you, repeat neighbors and increase the supplies of gas to meet those needs. those demands. but what needs to happen for that to take place is the certification of the nord stream to pipe. this is a pipe that was completed last month and would see natural gas be able to be delivered directly to germany. but before that can happen, that certification needs to take place. that is something that you find out. some illnesses are likely to discuss this week as they meet to discuss this entire crisis. but the idea that you finance ministers are discussing bread and butter subjects like energy bills and how people are going to pay them really gives you a sense of how this crisis is. and as they scratching their heads, looking for a solution, there are tens of millions of households who are concerned about this winter is
3:11 am
going to bring the difficult choices that they will have to make in order to either heat their homes or feed their families. all the while it is wondering how it will keep the light so on that is i re church half what he seen as a lenient sentence for an afghan teen who sexually abused the 7 year old austrian girl. he'll spend just 10 months behind bars and receive therapy after enticing the child into the basement of an apartment block and assaulting her. ah ah
3:12 am
well, another horrifying incident happened in austria backing. ching, when 3 afghans raped and killed a 13 year old girl, despite their immediate arrest, one of the suspect killers did manage to sneak into the k, under a fake name in a beta refugees unclaimed asylum. now is another way of fleeing. afghans arrives in austria, chance the sebastian curse is taking a tough stand. some crimes committed by migrants along with a resistance to accept any more asylum seekers or shrine. authorities have also said that they will forcibly to port afghans since request for asylum failed. according to you and data, the 2020 austria has more than 40000 afghan refugees. the 2nd biggest number off the gym and they haven't, i mean, discussed the she with violence by refugees and time justice is handed down the panel guests. most people saying it's far too lenient because the guy, even if you spend 10 months in behind bars, he's
3:13 am
a huge danger for the public. he has a lot of problems and they canceled comp you sold to was in 10 months behind the bar. they said, and he will get psychological treatment after that. he will get it, but he will be at lodge when he's all told to prison. and i don't sing, he will just be cured because he has a few hours, was a psychotherapist, sexual assault and abuse. are not excusable, there has to be better prevention. there have to be no steps of education in school, but off grown ups. asthma, i think punishment is wrong way, but punishment alone doesn't test. so we have to have a more holistic attempt and we really have to prevent that these cases happen again. this is of course, political, correct argumentation, but it has nothing to do with facts and reality because it's not a general problem problem. it's specially
3:14 am
a byron problem. it's also the sort of people that come, it's not the poor starving rural people coming, but it's people with some cache from the cities. they're mostly comedies, asylum seekers here. and they often are involved in crimes and petty crimes and own countries. if you look at the case of migration, 1st of all, if we don't ask the natal states, for example, we don't conduct and was like in africa or like in syria, people wouldn't have to leave their countries if people come and live in our countries. of course they have to have a good education if we take them and then we have to give them the possibility to work. and of course we have as well if people can traumatize from wall of countries where there was a political oppression, we have to give them some kind of therapy as well. it's not enough just to give them some money. is integration program. nice to come?
3:15 am
well come, they should really be brought into the middle of society, and that's a long way to go. you see these people, they are 5 to 10 times as many crimes, specially crime is related to women as the average australian citizen. so the problem is not so easy to handle. it's not like we shouldn't instrumental life the case to say it's just the afghan people, all the migrants. i think we should go deeper. me, mom, the prices in afghan is standing by and they bought the rockies, calling a looming social and economic crisis in the country. that is a deadly explosion in cabal killed several people in the funeral. what have the latest from the capital at just off the bright blue? ah,
3:16 am
ah ah, ah. herman by dreamer shaped by concur center, those with
3:17 am
dares sinks. we dare to ask oh, hello again. i was the night several people were killed in a plastic cuckoo, 2nd biggest mosque. taliban says it has to tie in 3 people allegedly responsible. meanwhile, half east foreign policy chief does insist. the block needs a presence in afghanistan to prevent what a it phase is. a looming social collapse. afghanistan is experiencing a serious humanitarian crisis. and a socio economic collapse is looming, which would be dangerous for afghans to region and international security. so the question is on, if we should have a minimal e u presence on which all member states agree, but when and how we're working on possible options,
3:18 am
taking into account the security situation. just to bring home, how dire the situation here in afghanistan, east millions of people here, especially in kabul, heat their homes in the harsh winter months with, with plastic. the entire city stinks of burn plastic in the winter months because wood is precious. oil is expensive. people here have no money to pay for food for food, never mind. health care, all of materials to burn, to heat their homes with. and the situation is that at wall a, the east coming in international a much of it, many countries and anyway, aid organizations are making it conditional. so they're saying either you meet these obligations, you meet these criteria. you have women in government, we won't give you 8 and given how desperate the humanitarian situation here is that millions on the verge of hunger and of, of the cold,
3:19 am
of freezing at the taliban has said that essentially these conditional aid office attack about do a black men and that they won't be pressure you out. my advice to the world neighbors, muslims, and particularly afghans is to leave of janice done to afghans the world cannot build of dentist on no way. we have reached our goal brothers, but it requires its protection. it is not the end. the world is still plotting against us. the world still tries to impose governments on us under this or that name. they wish for destruction, paralysis and damage of the slammer. cameras of, of galveston. ball aid has been coming into afghanistan. these the bare minimum needed to stave off calamity for another few weeks, perhaps another few months because the war here east continuing united states and its allies may have withdrawn it. me no longer be them fighting the taliban. but the taliban is at war with isis. it is a war that is intensifying all over the country. we see evidence of that every day
3:20 am
. the explosion on sunday it's cobbled 2nd biggest mosque is just the latest estimate that even the most secure sites are a vulnerable we saw in the aftermath of that res. overnight rates carried out by the taliban all over the capital capital where they were hunting down. i says, sells isis cake. operative in other areas of the country we have seen dr. pas, we have seen bobbins attacks carried out by isis against the taliban. and the, the thing here is us, aside from causing all the, the suffering amongst the civilian population. there is also the foreign policy consideration for, for western nations. the taliban, as the devil they know the devil that they can work with. if reluctantly, i sis may use the humanitarian crisis here in afghanistan. if the taliban is unable to deliver, to recruit more desperate people. and that is what perhaps europe and the united
3:21 am
states are essentially trying to avoid. one of the grimmest episodes of that messy evacuation was when a young football player fell from a plane while trying to flee the country. ah and worry was one of many acting. he's trying to flee the country as the plane gained altitude, he fell to his death. ah, by the zaki, was more than a brother to me retrained together for the last 4 years. god bless him. no one can feel his place in the team. and in our house, hey law, this kid i'm wearing belonged to zaki, but it's mine. now. he was a better footballer than me. we even called him messy. the entire afghan nation
3:22 am
loved him. he was our hero. ah . that guy visited with zacky was one of our best players, a wonderful buddy and a strong forward on his team. today they're playing with outside and we can feel the difference in young my son's like he was a national player, very talented boy. but i never came here before this my 1st time and he is not with us today. i miss him so much. authorities in berlin, struggling to curt the cost of rents which have been growing faster. the last couple of years housing and the quality in the capital is now seen is one of the major problems facing residents. debbie novel, long since about 2010 rents have been rising constantly. and this, despite the fact that barely and authorities were not indifferent,
3:23 am
but tried to take all possible measures to control their growth. however, the proposed net rent without heating in other additional costs ranges from $14.00 to $19.00 euros for berlin as more than half of whom are eligible for social housing of oliver. this cost becomes prohibitively high in these grades great difficulties for monday. they want to change their place of residence and find a new apartment. verbena were in a non binding referendum, more than half the public support. the expropriation of apartments from large companies, according to organizers putting the housing stock in public hands, would help stop the growth of rents there. some german liter state companies, however, stand against that move saying it would be almost impossible to implement a top candidate for berlin mare has also spoken out against the plan. for me, the shoe of expropriation is already a red line. i do not want to live in a city that sends the signal, this is where expropriation is taking place. the expropriation debate alone is
3:24 am
damaging berlin as a location. we need investment in infrastructure, but we also need effective tenant protection in my opinion. expropriation is, are not part of the toolkit. the referendum is just the latest attempt to rein in the cities housing market. he came after the overturning of berlin's rent cap that was supposed to freeze prices for nearly all apartments. for 5 years. the measure was ruled unconstitutional, which led to thousands marching against high rent prices. berlin tenants representative thinks though, the rejection of the results could well lead to a loss of trust and galena. he had stephanie's will fight against the commune. elation law would definitely face lawsuits. but if the berlin senate, the new berlin government did not take into account the real a referendum in which more, the 60 percent of berlin has voted in favor of making such a decision. then i think the government would lose the trust. the vote is,
3:25 am
i think that the berlin senate will not dare to ignore the results of the popular vote. and that brings you up to date with all the news this monday morning. you watching our table have more stories and just i have a half and i think to get plenty of storage too at our website party dot com. mm hm. ah if both of them are supposed to go crazy with doug, believe go, he did. who bought? i bought a dialed from all a couple of these on your voice, but i know from politicians to athletes and movies don't to musicals, does it seems every big name in the world has been here last year, copa bazooka corpus christi school. ah. wish him wasn't when you get the go, but i need to national booklet does not give me a globe new school. but niece, she said basil makes dreams come true,
3:26 am
but every one who falls in love with it, close to one is the was the vitamin yet sub war both look like. mm. join me every thursday on the alex silent. sure. and i'll be speaking to guess what the world politics spoke. business i'm show business. i'll see you then o is your media reflection of reality. in a world transformed what will make you feel safe? isolation for community. are you going the right way or are you being
3:27 am
that somewhere? direct? what is true? what is great? in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. financial to lima, i did a little about money laundering. first aid to because it is cash to 3 different. oh good. this is a good start. well, we have our 3 banks all set up here. maybe something in europe, something in america, something overseas, in the cayman islands, you never know all these banks are complicit in their club piper. so we just have to give them a call and say, hey, i'm ready to do some serious my laundry. ok, let's see how we did. well, we've got a nice luxury watch for max and for stacy. oh, beautiful jewelry. and how about ha ha. luxury automobile again for mag?
3:28 am
you know, it, money laundering is highly regal. copier watch. ah, ah. hello and welcome to cross stock where all things are considered. i'm peter lavelle . one would think the humiliating withdrawal from afghanistan would be the start of a washington wine down of the forever wars. is this really the case? also, you tubes war on creators, and it's not only about so called cobit misinformation. ah,
3:29 am
discuss these issues and more. i'm joined by my guess. i drink huntington in plymouth. he's the editor and boundary 21st century wire dot com and in budapest, george. anyway, he is a podcast or at the goggle, which can be found on youtube and locals. are a gentleman, cross stock rules in effect, that means you can jump in anytime you want. and i always appreciate it. okay, let's start off with patrick. one of the interesting things is the dust settles with the a humiliating evacuation of the couple. our airport by us forces after 20 years. there, there's been assessment. i mean is the beginning of something. is this an operation? is it some kind of hiatus? because it's very unclear even to some there are those that are saying that the u. s. 8 could possibly even have a deal already with the taliban. hence leaving all about equipment behind. i'm not gonna make any judgment at this point whatsoever, but it's very interesting to me. is this a one off thing or is that something a part of a trend? what are your thoughts?
3:30 am
go ahead patrick. i think this is, this is just the beginning. this is the beginning, but in reality, the started all this trajectory is or of eventual waning us influence in the middle east and central asia. i think this trajectory began a long time ago because america's greatest advantage throughout history is also its greatest liability. it's shown more than any other world power that it's willing to sacrifice blood and treasure for its national interest or what is perceived to be national interests. but that is also become its biggest liability. and i think the clock started running a really with the bombing of afghanistan, it post $911.00, the iraq war. the clock began running then, but the clock was really running from the vietnam war. so there's a limited amount of patients that the american people appetite for war. so.
