4:00 pm
can dream paved with dead refugees? it's this very idealized image. all this older america makes americans look past the deaths that happen every single day. this is a modern history of the usa. my america monarchy. ah, the name of hootin says the russia won't stop pumping guns to europe through you crying, adding the ease decision to ditch long term contracts was a costly mistake with any you itself. all lines of urge or some member states are increasingly saying read over the eas determination to go green. harnessing descent. marine faces potential trial, the daring to criticize president biden's african pull out despite another officer being held a hero. 2 years ago for criticizing from pulling
4:01 pm
the plug france seconds to cut to power supplies to the k. and i made a post for exit route, about fishing rights. ah, it was granted to national, very good evening. president booth. it says that he, you made a costly mistake when it decided to ditch long term gas contracts. you also stressed that brussels preferred method of gas trading overlooks some of its crucial characteristics. that is, it cannot easily be stored like other commodities. other interesting points came out of a cabinet mazing puts in held earlier today and is, is done of joint be in the studio ality discussed developments. 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. lemme put and talk to russia's
4:02 pm
energy minister and basically gave very clear instruction as to the country's actions and how russia will navigate this well, this market price has 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 consume him. so the russian president, what he did, he called on the minister to see 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 from rushes will national gas, ex putting company that gas from remains a faithful partner as well and follows the contractual obligations strictly prevalent room as she does, she gets 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
4:03 pm
$3000000000.00 a year. it is necessary to 40 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, including ukraine, despite the difficulties in relations. second, as 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 the price gouging that, that the trying to just milk is for will they can get what to put enough to said other. well, he didn't say anything about that per se, but he but the fact that he has presented the show that according to the russian officials, according to the rush, president reality could not have been further from well, from the, from this that the truth is very, very different, according to the russian president,
4:04 pm
our 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 gas 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 they aren't running a charity here. close to was be to be 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 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 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
4:05 pm
term gas supplies. so obviously russia is not going to want to be made out of 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 nuclear, 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 needed, 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 they receive gas steadily throughout the year. at the current market price, they decided that 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,
4:06 pm
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 little or make as 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 north 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, north stream too 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,
4:07 pm
rush 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 the so it's really unclear as to how many more steps unreciprocated russia will take and is ready to take the natural gas price in europe as swords to an old time record is now nearly $6.00 times what it was in the spring. let's put the continent uncles for a major energy crunch and laid bare internal divisions within the block about brussels green policies. it 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 to 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
4:08 pm
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 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 i stayed old 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
4:09 pm
issues when it comes to buying gas. you must change it's policy because partly actually, partly the reason why the prices are off the 4th of the, of the commission. so we have to choose some regulations. otherwise, everybody we suffer. the problem for hunger is other, the new regulation of greenville, which is on he died, expectation or flat owners, owners and cartilage or the e. u energy commissioner has warned that prices will most likely continue to rise throughout the winter and 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
4:10 pm
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 not gonna change energy bills or 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,
4:11 pm
it's still awaiting the green light in terms of all of the certification and approvals from various agencies before it can start providing energy. once that does get the approval that it's needed, well, it could provide as much as 55000000 cubic meters of russian gas to europe every single year. that's around enough to power 27000000 european homes. lilian, i spoke with german economist and publish like a hammer about europe's 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 especially the polish want to keep the right mailing position for
4:12 pm
germany. they don't want germany to be energy sufficient or energy independent with russian gas. they would like to be to keep the hand on the energy supply for germany. so with the north stream to pipeline, the energy supply would be a would be secured, and that's why these european partners don't want use republicans of the case. the military double standards found a marine facing potential challenges for criticizing the by the ministrations pull out from afghanistan. but it's in stark contrast to another officer who was earlier hailed a hero, the standing up to the trump administration. caleb open take a closer look at both those 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
4:13 pm
the withdrawal from afghanistan. now his hearing has been delayed until them prepare that it could be a long prison term. sheller was an active duty us marine who's frustration over the bungled retreat from cobble led to making videos, bashing biden. and the pentagon brass that quickly went viral. people are upset because they're senior leaders, let them down, and none of them are raising their hands and accepting accountability are saying we messed 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 to say, hey, 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 leader 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
4:14 pm
raise a voice about issues. lieutenant colonel alexander vendor min was on active duty when he 1st spoke up against the pentagon. brass feat 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 0. this guy is a patriot. and 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 life. now the answers from the white house quickly turned evasive when they faced tough questions about parallels. present vancover 10, a courtesy, alexander vin minute hero. for speaking out against his commander, she even has for the capitol hill in uniform. so how is this different,
4:15 pm
especially since he just said the president welcomes the candor and the advice of his military advisors, does the president also see with sheller hero? i dont 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 republicans or 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 a republican president, you are lord of the hero. this is double standard. lieutenant colonel vinland was celebrated by media while of tenant girls sheller is imprisoned 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 see the obvious coming any more. the best bureau cuts on the absolute worst wolfowitz is of the ones that get promoted and make the decisions. military leaders who criticize donald trump got talk, show appearances,
4:16 pm
and look deals treated almost like heroes. while one who just criticized biden is facing a hearing and a potentially long term spell behind bars. the double scene that we see be an exercise here today. it's a very dangerous precedent escort or gets the doll standard by democrats. first of all that, but also manifested tremendously by the mass media tends to be predominantly, less leaning in very much and pocket a b o, the democratic card or anything that was an antique trump was hailed. and so it's not surprising anything republican, this is the chase minimum was, was treated with kid gloves now. and as a consequence, or he gets off scott frame, having no late classified information. the political landscape has certainly
4:17 pm
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, but who you do it against? kayla mopping, r t. new york. let's turn now to a developing story in the the state of texas, a suspect has been detained after high school shooting and arlington, which left full people injured. the suspect is an 18 year old. black man, shooting reportedly happened after a fight between students. one person received a minor injury and of the 3 required hospital treatment to lead france strengthens to cut power supplies to the k. m. a deposed briggs. it ro about fishing, writes that story more for you after the break. ah,
4:18 pm
join me every thursday on the alex salmon. sure. but i'll be speaking the guess will the world politics sport? business i'm show business. i'll see you then. oh, is your media reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? hi sir. lation for community. are you going the right way, or are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true? what is great? in the world corrupted, you need to descend her join us in the depths.
4:19 pm
will remain in the shallows. ah, ah, we'll get back criminalizing parenting that is the plane being made against the, by the ministration in the us, after the department of justice confirmed criticism of school boards will now be taken more seriously. this is after the school boards association claim that threats it's received, attempt amount of domestic terrorism. and that's something that is provoked outrage among parents for you to dare to tries to smear parents as domestics. harris just reflects just how tone death, school boards and school administrators have become about the please of parents on behalf of their children. the us attorney general wrote
4:20 pm
a letter to the f. b. i and criminal attorneys announcing plans for measures to come by what he called a rising criminal conduct towards school personnel. followed a letter from the national school board association which told of an immediate threat on dealing with issues surrounding critical race theory and mask mandates. citing several examples, but critics believe that the most simply designed to suppress opposition voices coupled with attacks against school board members and educators for approving policies for mosques 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 sufficiently addressed by your local police. the fed was the political police f
4:21 pm
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 based loosely attack opposing views because left as groups one control over curriculums. alex be live now to your to contribute to lauren chin. the toyota, get lauren m festival. the national school board association. i. when talking on this issue, it's site some incidents violent incidents when making his argument. why do you think parents then believe that you know that the, the board is out to get them and, and getting the f b i involved to get them? so to be clear, the boards 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 cite is actually things like parents refusing to wear masks at these meetings, which they believe constitutes violence. i guess in the age of corona virus. other
4:22 pm
also there was one other incident where there was some, some harsh words being exchanged in a parking lot outside of the school board meeting where shares were actually present in that particular situation. i don't think anyone was arrested and 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. a lot of what they said as actually being domestic terrorism or violence, actually just tantamount to a some harsh words being said in meetings that the school board administrators did not care for, or parents not wearing mass. it don't get me wrong if they're actually threats on record. they absolutely should be reported to police. but as your, your segment mentioned earlier, that's usually the job for local police. so 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 rights as parents is. so they extreme way of getting parents are still being critical that the parents aren't shutting up for now though for the same the
4:23 pm
attorney general is going to conflict of interest in this case. what do they mean by that? so reports have come out that actually attorney merit or attorney general mary garland, his sit, his daughter through marriage has ties to a firm that actually specializes in critical race theory, training or something akin to that that could be used by school boards as a resource for their teachers and their curriculum, so it has been put forward i. i think there's plenty of evidence for bias without this, but it has been put forward by some the reason why the age is taking this letter from the school board of association. so seriously is specifically because his family, through his daughter and her husband potentially might benefit financially from c r t actually being implemented in more and more schools throughout the country. i'm not saying that this is for certain, i don't know if there's evidence to say, conclusively, but i think this connection had it been something that occurred on the trumpet. ministration would absolutely be brought up and probably scrutinized. it describes
4:24 pm
the school author, the certainly buzz, no resemblance to what i experience with us for better or worse i'm. i'm not sure how politicized a school life become these days. well, it seems like it's increasingly political and at a very young age as well. since it's more students have smartphones at younger and younger ages, there have been viral videos that have been a leak 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, talking about how they often incorporate, you know, l g, b, t, a lesson plans, talking about b, l, m and things like that, george floyd. and they say these things openly and proudly because in their minds they are doing the right thing. i think a lot of parents have started to wake up over the course the pandemic with a distance learning becoming more popular. 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.
4:25 pm
could speak to lauren joining the ally from canada, ality contrib to lauren. jeff, thank you. france is certainly the cuts, cross channel electricity supplies for the u. k. this is over post for exit fishing dispute. so the duplicate reports from paris honor find that threatens to up and a series of crucial agreements between the european allies france could be about to slam the brakes on the relationship with the u. k. as this right over fishing rights is pretty much imploding. last week, the u. k refused the majority of licenses that came from french, smaller fishing vessels to fish in it's wooded, only approved 12 out of 47. and as a result of that, iris is furious. it's now saying the bilateral agreements that cover everything from security, border control to trade in energy are now under threat because paris says that london simply cannot keep its commitments under the brakes. it deal. bruton does
4:26 pm
not respect it some signature month after month the u. k. presents new conditions and delays given definite if licenses this cannot be tolerated. we know the u. k is facing this unprecedented energy crisis just like pretty much all of the countries across continental europe. and it could be a back to get even worse, because francis said that it could in the next few days decide to turn off electricity supplies to the u. k. well, how significant is that? pretty darn significant. according to you, k governments own papers in july of this year, france supplies almost half of the energy for electricity for the u. k. to this really could see the lights being turned out. well, you mean it, both the u. k. depends on our energy exports. they think they can live alone while also beating up on your own. and given that it doesn't work, engage an aggressive one. upmanship. we negotiate a commie nicely, you know,
4:27 pm
9 months in our dotson ult, littleton and add to this pretty much perfect storm. a threats that are coming directly from the french fishermen themselves. now we know that boss johnson has already wound the u. k. to put the supply issues in the lead up to christmas. that with energy, that's with petro, that's also with products in stores and now french fishermen, the st. you know what if you do not a roof or fishing licenses, we are going to block the ports. we'll make sure that there'll be no imports and no exports between europe and the u. k, which really could add to, boris johnson was and those are threats that the u. k. should also take pretty seriously, given that we know that the french one, they like to protest and 2, that have already been tense stand offs in the last year over this issue over fishing licenses. now the u. k for it's part says look, we've done nothing wrong. in fact we keeping to our commitments and we're keeping the agreement over fishing licenses. we have granted 98 percent of the license
4:28 pm
applications from the u boats to fish in our waters. so we do not accept the we are not a biden by traded cooperation agreement. we have been extremely generous and the french folks in, in, on a small category of boats and claim. and we have behaved, unreasonably, i think is not really a fair reflection of the efforts we have made. france as well as pulling out the big guns with those threats over energy. and bilateral trades has also asked for the european commission to take a much tougher stance when it comes to the u. k. over this and other issues that you commission, though, isn't sort of really wanting to get into the murky waters over at this particular spot. it's saying what it's going to do is to ask the u. k. can explain its methodology and it will sort of go from that or limp from that. the reality is though, in this prose baggers, it will as the issue surrounding that are beginning to bite. there is a real threat coming from france at the moment,
4:29 pm
and it does seem as if boris johnson has some really tough decisions to make. he is essentially caught between the devil and the deeply se. okay, so from out of get a check out more news on our website, artie duncan ah, i'm a new machine on the internet. the allows only been problems and much was about to invite everybody's lloyd. that wasn't a glitch. that was the feature that the people who designed the internet is all in as a feature a proposal most basic, but i still believe we did. we'll follow up with dial tomorrow, a couple of reviews on your report,
4:30 pm
but i know from politicians to athletes and movies does to musicals, does it seem to every big maybe the world has been here? let's see. okay. but as you can work out a difficult when you finish with what does not give me a global new sport, but she said basil makes dreams come true. that every one who falls in love with people look like a when i was wrong when i was just a shape proud disdain. because the advocate and engagement.
