for different stories behind the bullets. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race group is on often very dramatic development. only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful. it's very difficult time time to sit down and talk ah, what i was looking at was supposed to go, but i still believe we did. who bought a border with dial tomorrow. a couple of these on your report, but i know from qualifications to athletes and movies don't to musicals, does it seems every big name in the world has been here? that's your proof of ms. euclid corpus goes to school. ah, what to wish them wasn't when you get the call,

but i need to national nuclear does not give me a global new school but needs to you? said basil makes dreams come true. but every one who pulls in love with people. luke, with my gas prices skyrocket to record highs, as the demand continues to grow plants that is this facebook whistleblower. really trying to do the right thing or pay the way for even more censorship. and what may have caused that massive oil fil off the coast of southern california. all that and more right here are news hughes on our t america. ah,
7:32 am
oh, good evening and thanks for joining us. i'm natasha suite in for scotty now hughes . we have some developing news coming out of texas an 18 year old, open fire inside a dallas area high school, leaving 4 people injure the shooting happened at timber view, high school in arlington. authorities said the shooting occurred after a fight broke out at the school. according to report, the all clear has been given at the school and the shooter is now in police custody . he has been identified as 18 year old timothy george simpkins. 3 of the 4 victims were taken to the hospital. the other refused treatments. the natural gas price in europe has sword to in all time record $6.00 times higher than it was in the spring . it's put the continent on a course for a major energy crunch, revealing internal divisions within the block over brussels as green policies are teased. peter oliver reports from berlin, while prices are as high as they are on the commodities markets. this isn't so much
7:33 am
going to trickle down to consumers as perhaps the price is gonna fall upon homeowner's promo, board domestic home uses form a great height to what we've heard from the european commission president. ursula for the line is that she recognizes that there are major problems that we're facing right now on 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 the but the renewables, the prices have decreased over the last 2 years and a stable. so for us is very clear that with energy in the long term, it is important to invest in renewables. that gives us stable prices and more independence because gas is imported, 90 percent of the gas is important to the european union,
7:34 am
the renewal. thus we are the masters without plans being dismissed out of hand by hunger, his 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 benz blamed these problems on the european commission saying they have far too many restrictions in place, far too much regulation. and that is what's causing the issues when it comes to buying gas. you must change policy because partly partly the reason why the prices are up is the 4th of the, of the commission. so we have to see some regulations. otherwise, everybody who suffer. the problem for hunger is under the new regulation of greenville, which is a direct taxation for flat owners. owners caught on or the e. u energy commissioner has warned that prices will most likely continue to rise throughout the winter. won't see any respite until the spring of 2022, just how high prices rise may well come down to something as fickle as the weather . if it's a particularly cold winter, we could well see prices soaring,
7:35 am
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, spain, greece, the czech republic and romania, all their finance ministers signed a joint statement saying that there needs to be a complete overhaul of the way energy is purchased in europe, that isn't going to be a short term solution though, perhaps in the long term it may change something. it's not gonna change energy builds 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 russia
7:36 am
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 not through the node stream to gas pipeline, that huge infrastructure projects construction was completed. the summer, however, it's still awaiting the green lights in terms of all of these, the dictation and approvals from various agencies before it can stop providing energy. once that does get the approval that needed, well, it could provide as much as 55000000 cubic meters of russian death to europe every single year that surrounded of 2 pallet 27000000 european homes. or back here at home, u. s. federal investigators say a ship's anchor. it may be to blame for a massive oil spill in california. are teas, john? heidi has more on the possible cause. the oil slick remains visible from the air, land, and sea off the coast of huntington beach,
7:37 am
california. as the clean up continues, now u. s. federal transportation investigators looking into the cause of the spill, say that ships anchor may have hot dragged, and tor, and underwater pipeline spewing tens of thousands of crude oil into the pacific ocean. further officials say the pipeline zoner amplify energy core of houston, texas did not shut down operations fast enough when emergency alarms began to learning cruise around 2 30 am saturday, october 2nd, about a possible rupture waiting until around 6 am saturday. the company then reportedly waited another 3 hours to notify the u. s. coast guards, national center for oil spills. there'd even been reports of an oil slick and strong petroleum smell. coming in to the coast guard as early as friday evening. the ceo of amplifying the decor maintains, they were unaware of the spill until around 8 am. saturday. it happened about 5 miles off the coast of huntington beach, california, which is south of los angeles. the ocean there is line with oil rigs and huge
7:38 am
tanker ships that often anchor off shore, while awaiting docking orders and coordinates from the port of long beach u. s. coast guard officials say divers determined that about 4000 feet of the pipeline about 100 feet down was quote, latterly displaced by about 105 feet that is ripped up and dragged along the ocean floor. so far as much as 126 to 144000 gallons of oil has reportedly leaked into the pacific waters. while officials say at this point, the still hasn't had any major impacts on ocean life in the area. it is still too early to tell for sure. so for now, as the clean up continues, questions also remain about how and why the incident happened and how to prevent it from ever happening again. for news use hughes, john hoodie. on tuesday we heard testimony from francis hogan, a former data scientist for facebook. you may recall her capitol hill presence was
7:39 am
less than 48 hours after a period on 60 minutes. sunday night hogan shared company documents. she said she copied before her departure. the paper, the papers revealed that facebook may have chosen profits and user interactions over the well being of people. according to the research, a facebook utilizes engagement based rankin, which prioritize is content that elicits in extreme reaction, i saw facebook repeatedly encounter conflicts between its own profit and our safety . facebook consistently resolve these conflicts in favor of its own profits. the result has been more division, more harm, more lies, more threats, and more combat. in some cases, this does, this dangerous online talk has led to actual violence that harms and even kills people. hogan was rather chummy with lawmakers at the hearing. when asked by senator richard blumenthal, if the buck stops with facebook, theo marcus for burg, this is, was huggins response. mark holds
7:40 am
a very unique role in the tech industry in that he holds over 55 percent of all the voting shares for facebook. there are no similarly powerful companies there, as he unilaterally controlled and in the end, the buck stops with mark there is no one heard currently holding market council by himself. and for more on the possible motives behind the facebook with the blower we turned to ad martin, president of phyllis shaft li eagles, and the publisher of pro american report dot com. thanks for joining us today. ed. great to be with you. natasha. thank you. now there are some theories circulating out there that francis hogan isn't exactly the angel that she's claiming to be. again, these are just claims be made at this point. but what are your thoughts about her working with a p r firm that has ties to the democratic party? well, it's not so much try. so the democratic party ties to obama until the obama insider team. you know, bill burton is the guy who we're talking about. he's one of the insider obama,
7:41 am
you know, hacks that does this stuff for a living. but look, i don't care about people's intentions are what's in their hearts your minds. i care about describing what happened. we had the wall street journal and 60 minutes make this woman into a st. and by the time 2 days later, she's in front of the senate. you have the senate going through a kabuki theater, where they're talking as if they're really fighting and really doing something. and then all the solutions offered are the ones that the big tech giants want. most they can control more speech and make more money. there's no breaking up iowa, one quick solution. facebook lied to the public about instagram and facebook. that's what it sounds like. break them up. instagram should be spun off. facebook should go the other way. let's do something and actually changes the power dynamic . so the whole thing was theater. it was done not just by bill burton and the obama people, the biting people needed to change the conversation into something that they think is better for the public. so it's the worst of the swamp, and i think the american people need to see through it, but i fear they won't because they won't be able to see it on regular media. and as
7:42 am
it is, many conservatives complain about being censored and some are speculating, oversight will only tighten what people can see on the platform, meaning less conservative content. do you think that that's a possibility? it has to be true. the only the only liberals that are that are remotely a censured by facebook are ones that don't want the vaccine. they happen to be african american, n b a players, they get otherwise, it's all conservative. so yeah, look when, well, what, what big tech is most afraid of is being broken up. and so they'll go to bed with that with the re government with big government, the senators, because they know how to buy them and control them. what they and they don't mind if they say, if it blumenthal it says, hey, you gotta stop. remember this whistleblower said what got her to the point of whistle blowing was one of her friends got show in to facebook. he became a right winger might have been a trump. that's the whole reason to be here. so what's the senate is going to say is we'll tell you what free speech is and then facebook will say, oh good,
7:43 am
that's what will enforce that no problem. and it won't be conservatives. libertarians outside the box thinkers, it will be all what the narrative machine, what big government, big tech, and be big media, want to feed us and want us to hear. it's very scary. and if facebook is regulated, how do we know it? won't be the same thing, like with the tobacco companies in big pharma where the law is written, actually protect their interests. well, we don't accept that. what we can predict is what this whistleblower said. she thought was smart, which is redo $230.00 so that facebook would have to regulate speech according to what, what blumenthal and the woman even admitted. she said, i would like to leave harvard business school work for a few years at a tech giant. and then go into this new regulatory agency. it's like elizabeth warren's dream scenario with all the invite economic stuff. so what we know is it will be protecting facebook. why? because the same idiots that are sitting across the senator saying, all this admit there's more lobbyist for facebook and google than anybody else up
7:44 am
there on capitol hill and money talks and senators walk. and so again, we should be able to predict that and the public has to demand something different than this kabuki theater that we saw. and we know that facebook is a private company that can it truly be a free speech platform if the so called misinformation police, which is what hug in essentially was at facebook, are deciding what's true and not true. shouldn't we be concerned if anything, conservative says, is defined as hate speech when it's just the opposite of their narrative? yeah, this is the exciting thing about natasha living at this time is all the models have gone out the window, right? the libertarians want to say, oh, it's a private business, leave it alone. it's too much power. facebook and google and youtube are dominating our lives, our families, our kids. we have to do something different than the old model. remember, anti trust law was created at the time of the trust, the energy trust the oil trust, because they had no theory before that to think about how to do it. so free speech has to trump zocker bergs bucks and we have to be willing to think creatively about
7:45 am
what that means. and so you're exactly right. you know, the fear should be that anyone controls our speech. but what right now, what the reality is, is that you have a big government that is dictating and being dictated to their in bed together by big tech. and so by the way, yesterday or 2 days ago, when mary garland says, parents may get out of hand at school boards or better said the school board administration says, tell us to stop them. and he puts the f, b i on the case. that's the beginning, i guarantee a facebook is looking and saying, well, people that say bad things about school board meetings, we better throttle them back because that's what big government wants. it's really totalitarianism and it's happening in front of our eyes. and martin, we always appreciate your insight. thank you so much for your time. thank you to tasha. well, could there be a new conflict of interest in the classroom? we'll discuss with our $360.00 panel right after the break. ah
7:46 am
. oh. join me every 1st on the alex silent. sure. but i'll be speaking to guess when the world politics small business, i'm sure business. i'll see you then a
7:47 am
trained general merrick garland and hot water for a conflict of interest. according to media reports merits donna rebecca is married to the co founder of an education resource company, and is pushing critical race theory. as some parents are protesting the material garland went as far as getting the f b i to work with local leaders to address what he called a disturbing spike and harassment, intimidation, and threats of violence against teachers and school board members. is there more to the story to discuss? let's bring in our political panel leak abdul conservative commentator and robert patillo talk radio host and civil rights attorney. thanks for joining me gentlemen . thanks to tasha. thanks rap. now 1st i want to get both of your reactions to this information and folding with the attorney general. robert, you're an attorney. do you see a possible conflict of interest here? no, this is one of the silliest stories of the week. so let's understand, the attorney general's daughter's husband works for a company that tries to get children to learn more about history. and conservatives
7:48 am
are trying to turn that into a scandal. when the previous president's daughter and her husband worked in the, in the white house, while still having business ties across the country and also internationally where yvonne control was still selling her bootleg handbags made them china. while in the white house, i think this is a completely non story and lives understand to right now. the senate is debating and $3.00 trillion dollar bill. they'll address things like early childhood education, free 2 years of junior college, for anybody in the country. and instead of conservatives actually introducing their own policy or talking about what they want to do, an education they post use canards out to try to distract people will do silly stories. i think the american people don't believe in, and that was the entire reason they were booted out of office in 2020. and that is what democrats are depending on what he's trying to fight through the democratic war to get me and these initiative passed. all of that kinda spinning in just a 2nd. but only do you think this are for a q four's critical race theory in schools? again, some parents wishes is being driven by the attorney general. no,
7:49 am
i actually don't think that at all. and for the most part, most of us realize that it's critical, right? theory really isn't being taught in schools at all and being k through 12 level. it really is a college level of discipline. and the problem is, is that even liberals in their response to it, they respond to the notion of teaching critical race theory by how dare the united states not teach us about our, you know, i can't story. and that's not really where we are at all in the discussion of critical race theory because it doesn't have a whole lot to do with that. but to roberts, to point the back into that happens in every administration where you just mention that whether it's on the left or the right, you try to apply situations where there seems to be conflict of interest. there were liberal that the same time that robert is talking about that would go back a tropic that were happening with our dealings with her and bank overseas. there were a lot of other things that democrats could have been focusing on in congress,
7:50 am
but they were because they were focusing on those type of these type of entanglements where we try to say that this person is, you know, doing this type of thing or the other way really happens on both sides all the time . i don't think that this is really a big issue with what's happening with mary darling daughter spoken or anything like that. and i don't think that there is a receipt from the attorney general's office, but there is a real problem out there with the f b i decided to actually get involved in what's happening around the country and to protest against the idea of critical race theory that really is and now we know the democrats are hoping to extend the u. s. government borrowing authority to avoid a major default. let's take a listen to what any minority leader, mitch mcconnell, on where he says the republican stands. i said in july and september, there's a clear path to achieve raising the debt ceiling, which must happen,
7:51 am
america must not ever evolve and doing it with democrat only and the link are you disappointed with mcconnell here? not opting for a plan for the country to cut spending versus raising the debt ceiling no matter what. it comes to the debt filling discussion and i can't be more disappointed in mitch mcconnell now, the democrats or any other because it really happens every cycle when we have this discussion about raising the debt feeling also, lee, it always happens. so how many republicans you actually get to afford it, or if the case when donald trump was in office, how many democrats you get to afford it bits really is part of that political tit for tat. that happens in every administration. we've had shut down during the trumpet administration because democrats weren't willing to work with the republican president to actually whether it was raised the death billing or,
7:52 am
you know, we end up with these continuing, continuing resolutions or to see ours as we call them. so no, i'm not disappointed when too much on the end of the day, what i realize is that the debt ceiling will be re, as it is every single time and every administration. robert house majority web jane's cliburn says that the debt ceiling is archaic and we should get rid of it. do you agree and do you think this is something that party will get behind? i think he turned is turned into a formality just as malika said, that at the end of the day, no politician and no congress are going to allow america default on their dance and turned into a, a nation in receivership. so when you have a threat, was no longer has in chief to it. will this become a formality of something silly due to skipped around as a political football for a few weeks until ultimately getting resolved? now do i think when she does have unlimited spending in america, where there is absolutely no checks and balances? no, i do not. and then as we bipartisan understanding,
7:53 am
the one from head to 1.5 trojan our task that he didn't pay for that should have been something that we talked about as a nation of you're going to have 3 point $5000000.00 and spending. there is something that we should talk about in a nation and so i don't get behind the idea of will eliminate the debt syllabi, duke, no one should get back to, as molly said, having reg, regular budgeting and the station having the actual budget instead of continuing resolutions instead of cram everything to reconciliation, but our parties have become so tribal, tribal listed there was nearly impossible. decompose the most perfunctory thing across the line. oh, when it comes to the national interest was not within your own parties basis. um, we are influenced now and the white house is keeping a close eye and ain't gubernatorial race happening in virginia next month. only if president biden was doing such a great job leading the country, do you think this race would even matter as much? no, no, actually i don't, but it also it whether or not you actually went or not. i think it's actually will be a lasting for democrats that running against trump for the next 4 years. that may not
7:54 am
actually work because the democrats and terry mcauliffe, they definitely try to tie glen junk into donald trump in ways that were successful in 2020. i'm not sure that this is going to be as successful in 2022, and definitely 2024. so, democrats, again, whether he were the ones or not democrats should actually look at their strategy because just attacking attaching anyone or donald trump, to amy republican that runs. dat simply will not be enough to get you over the finish line. they need to be very careful with is my guess is they want and they'll continue to talk any republican to donald trump, whether or not they fully supported pm or not. robert, how do you see things playing out? and for ginia, why i did thing, the democrats ultimately carry the day by to agree with believe that it belongs democrats continued to have trumpet mean the ghost of the darkness that it is
7:55 am
sinners. american politics around trump, entropy of them as opposed to moving forward. electrons are based on the future, not the past. nobody's asking about, hey, what are the old or what is? oh, william howard half. think about this issue because there's something in the past, is that something to putting towards a future? i think democrats of startling what their viewers of the people of the future pushing that out there. not simmering all the races around the who's the most antitrust candidate. and the most away forward. so i think the fed this raises closer shown the john joe biden had a terrible no good there event summer. and he asked to work on that democrats at some, some points on the board. all right, thank you so much gentlemen. robert patello malik until we always appreciate your insight. new information comes to training, coven, 19, and bio pharmaceutical company. merck has reportedly developed the 1st pill to treat croner virus. according to the company, it could cut hospitalizations and deaths by half. the pill would be the 1st of its kind and may be available within months. but the price could be out of reach for
7:56 am
many patients. turn it chavez has more on the new pill. a coven treatment and pill form, the 1st of its kind. merck out with new data that shows its antiviral drug manu, purity are taking twice a day for 5 days when symptoms begin, cuts the risk of hospitalization and death. in half the news of the efficacy of this particular antiviral is obviously very good news for the company. when they briefed us last night, had mentioned that they will be submitting their data to the f. da, imminently of the data are impressive. you were there was a 50 percent diminution of importance is that in the placebo group there were. ready a guess and in the treatment group there were no depths. that's also very important. and very good news. a company says it will soon ask health officials in the us and around the world to authorize the drugs use. and if cleared the drug would be the 1st pills shown to treat coven 19 something dr. say would be
7:57 am
a major step forward in the global efforts to control the pandemic. having pills available that can prevent the evolution into serious disease would change the way we can treat. at the moment, people who are newly affected have to come to special treatment centers to receive their intravenous infusions. we could give them now or in the future, a prescription. they can go to their pharmacy and take their medications the way they do other medicines. this would allow us to treat many more people much more quickly and we trust much less expensively. but while the new medication is being here, a huge advance and the treatment of coven 19 experts at the harvard school of public health and kings college hospital in london. say the company is charging the u. s. a. 40 times more than what the drug actually costs to make. according to the report, the researchers estimate the pill only cost about $17.00 to make. however, merck is charging $712.00 for the same amount of medicine. 40 times the price. now
7:58 am
i've reached out to merck asking about the drastic price increase, but have not yet heard back. meantime, it's important to note that the data has not been peer reviewed just yet, but a group of medical experts monitoring the trial recommended, stopping it early. because the intern results were so encouraging. reporting for news use, use trinity sharp as r t new york. and that's all the time we have for today. thanks so much for watching and have a great ah, a new way of life and reindeer herders leading a traditionally nomadic lifestyle in the tundra is similar to a parallel reality. i with women carry the weight of the household work on their shoulders,
7:59 am
and some of them was full spread sheet in there. this really close, nice thinking. however, in the vast expanse of russia, there is a spot where a housewife could secure regular employment started. it's in the font or soon escalate to, to let them with oh, when i was sure seemed wrong when old rules just don't hold any new world yet to shape out. disdain becomes the advocate and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground.
