1:01 pm
parliament passes a non binding resolution seeking to ban police use of facial recognition software and public places that me piece hailing it as a major victory. i guess debate the issue. this is good news. you're bringing criminals and services will be abused like crazy. there's a great saying and law enforcement that when you're a hammer, everything looks like a nailed pump. ah, good evening. thanks for joining me. this is our t international. we begin this hour in afghanistan, where dozens of people have reportedly been killed in an explosion of the sheer mosque in the countries know the city of couldn't us. you may find the upcoming images of the aftermath. distressing blast occurred during friday prayers. the pat congregation insides, there are conflicting reports on how many casualties there have been. but officials
1:02 pm
say there are least 50 people killed, and more than another, $100.00 injured the suicide bomber was said to be behind the attack. the taliban blind, the ice is cato risk group which carried out the cobble airport blast in august, which saw scores of people killed this latest incident fall as a deadly explosion on sunday. at another mosque in the country's capital. and it all comes as 2 months since the taliban swept back to power, filling the void left by the u. s. withdrawal. local journalist visited the site of the blast and sent this report today at 1 pm this afternoon during prayers here at i. e. she i'd mosque and couldn't dues had bomb exploded and eye witnesses said least 100 people were killed. the explosion was so powerful, according to some officials, the new taliban government had warned attacks like this one were possible. earlier taliban security personnel visited this place and they gave the opinion that it might be a suicide blast. after examining some evidence, we've seen such
1:03 pm
a blast in the past, hitting mosques and killing worshippers. assembly faith were targeting she on era. there were targeting chia in syria, they were targeting chia everywhere in the middle east. so that i wouldn't be surprised that this. this is, as i said, you know, this is actually the work of them expired because they're concerned that she or is there any, is there another good believe are over there. so this is, this is the execute. but i mean, the major aim is who these fabulous afghanistan tool actually needs to believe that taliban rule and update his sam. so this is mrs. the beginning and i wouldn't be surprised, actually more of the bitterly at that slide miss will take place in that fuel we, among sir, ahead democrats in the u. s. congress are going all out with calls for a crackdown on facebook following the claims of a company whistleblower. although it now turns out that frances,
1:04 pm
how going as close size to the party something she fell to mention while demanding action against her. now, former employer case books, products, harm, children, stroke decision and weak 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 for people. congressional action is needed. let's try and untangle this, sir. francis hogan is being represented by a co founder of whistle blower. 8 john tie. he served in the obama administration, the other co founder of the organization, which helps whistleblowers pay the lowest phases. mog zayed, he was a legal representative. alexander vin men, a wind house staffer, who testified in donald trump's 1st impeachment trial. next blumenthal editor in chief of the grayson highlighted other alleged links and says political affiliations shouldn't come as any shock. her testimony dovetails very closely with
1:05 pm
the democrat censorship agenda. their plan or their desire to heavily sensor social media. frances, how again was pushing that agenda if it's true that bryson gillette, the strategic communications firm that is reportedly advising francis halligan, and which was founded by former obama aid bill burton. does it enjoy this relationship with her? then we also have to consider her relationship, a possible relationship with abide and white house, who's press secretary jen, saki, i actually used to be employed as a senior advisor by bryce and juliet. what's clear here is that democratic operatives were not, if these reports are true, are providing that p r advice and promotion to francis how going a previously unknown figure, who was instantly verified by twitter the day of her carefully coordinated and
1:06 pm
crafted testimony. so she's not as a, an actual whistleblower. she is a political operative advancing a cohesive agenda. what's more, it emerged friends, his how going as a regular donor to democrat affiliated organizations which help party candidates get elected. legal and media analyst, lionel and max blumenthal again, gave us their take on the facebook allegations and the dangers of censorship. 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 u. s. enemies per her recommendation. i think her. 2 you know, it could, it can benefit multiple causes, you could see it benefiting the religious. right. that doesn't like the kind of
1:07 pm
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 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 working with any u. s. allies to carry out malicious activities. this is an extension of the narrative we've been hearing since the russia gate saga began. the real issue, the gravamen, the, the $64000.00 question is one of our people and coating a former president of the united states who are excluded. an expert gated bowdlerized from any kind of public conversation because of who he is. that's the issue. i may ask you sent me one of you were on your phone on your mo bile and you
1:08 pm
said something politically piquant and all the sudden your phone went dead because your carrier says car, we don't like that. that's a hate speech. and you say you're the phone company, you don't, you don't monitor what i say. well, that's what we have to look at these companies as utilities, they will shut you down merely because you're oh pining and expressing in a an opinion. that's what they never talked about. that's the reason that's what i wanted to hear, that was never addressed in this big whistle blowing, expose a fresh, blah, blah, blah, blah blah. as gretta would say, calls are growing in the united states to slat new sanctions on russia. over the node stream to pipeline in light of europe's energy, crisis becomes days after vladimir putin pledge to ramp up. natural gas applies to europe as prices hit record highs. not his little quarter took us through the details. they're basically being accused of trying to artificially keep the price
1:09 pm
of natural gas as high as possible. but that actually announcement by the russian president vladimir putin to boost to europe's natural gas supplies, caused a price decrease of 20 percent. right after that, amid this energy crisis in just 2 days after that, we heard from us congressman michael mccall, who said that the u. s. should resume sanctions against russia in connection to the north stream to pipeline. and why? he says that russia's somehow weapon ising. it president biden and chancellor merkel committed to taking action. should russia attempt to use energy as a weapon? yet both of tend to blind eye to the person regimes, deliberate efforts to pressure europe into accelerating the russian node stream to pipelines, certification process by manipulating europe's gas markets, and leveraging a severe energy crisis on the continent. i'm a call says anglo merkel is turning a blind eye to some apparent malign,
1:10 pm
influenced by russia, but anglo merkel herself has said that russia fulfills all of its obligations in these contracts that are voluntarily made between russia and the european union. the fog, it is a gift. this, 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. that is, there are no orders that frush has said, no, we will not deliver those to you and we're not pumping gas through the ukrainian pipeline. rather russia can only fulfill orders that have been contract it out. so the question is really, isn't being ordered. the international gas union also praised russia as the power that can bring energy security to europe, and that the north stream to pipeline would actually play a crucial role in that. so it doesn't exactly seem like the reasoning behind mccall statements to resume sanctions against russia has a late to stand on. and yet the allegations from the u. s. keep coming. how is moscow responded? we heard from russia's foreign minister survey leverage. he said, basically the u. s is trying to pit russia's european partner is against moscow.
1:11 pm
let's take a listen to what he said said your list of 30 for them will go to still. the u. s. openly say that cooperation with russia is contrary to europe's energy security interests that want to directly embroil is in this area and reduce our independence . now it's also important to note that russian president vladimir putin even urged to russia state gas company gas prompt to continue pumping fuel through crane even once north stream 2 is fully operational. and that move would show europe that russia wants to act in good faith that they're ready to fulfill their contractual obligations. even though if they made this move entirely to a pumping gas to the north stream to pipeline, this would save the company billions of dollars. market watch at craig l. emberly's sanctions against mill stream to isn't south of here. it's this the priorities the pipeline has been completed and it's, it's to the situation now is about approval on the a you is in a difficult situation when the pressure is going to be maybe not immediately,
1:12 pm
but the pressure is going to be substantially get this over the line if with 2 months from now, when we're in the midst of a cold winter, then pressure is going to ramp up. and i don't think sanctions is going to ultimately get in the way that the end of the day. your plan is always going to choose to keep the lights on over. 2 2 over move in search of an ideal for the storage levels are much lower than they typically are this time of year and they don't have the capacity to make up last grounds. we know we've obviously had a cold winter last year, which is why these levels are low. we know that if we have another cold winter this year, that these levels are going to be far lower once more. and we're also at a point when demand is higher because of the reopening that we have seen around the world. so i think europe has a massive problem and they are in a position now where they are heavily reliant on any extra supplies that can come from russia. you've been lawmakers are pushing for
1:13 pm
a ban on facial recognition systems is by police. the parliament is passed a non binding resolution against biometric surveillance, which some and me piece of compared to cold war snooping. that's an important step in fighting against mass surveillance. the central and eastern europeans used to live under the eye of the big brother. and we don't want to come back the resolution calls for a ban on funding or deploying programs that could result in indiscriminate mass surveillance. the document also emphasizes the importance of human supervision in any final decision making and urges authorities to be more transparent by using open source software. so the 1st move against accesses surveillance in 2019 san francisco became the 1st city in america to enact a complete ban on police, biometric surveillance, other us cities, and followed. we discussed the pros and cons of facial recognition with terrorism
1:14 pm
expert david low and former use police officer. dominic is a there's a great saying in law enforcement that when you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail. and all this does it, it may have the great grand scheme idea of you're going after some very serious offences like child sex trafficking are missing persons or terrorist activity. but i don't care who says what, it'll always be used down to your lowest common denominator, which is your citizen. and it will be abused like crazy. you're then actively putting a tool in the police's hands to look for crimes proactively in the wrong way. i think this is just, this is a door that's going to be open for some very abusive authority. i don't think it's a good idea. as you can put police in the mindset of that everybody's a criminal is good news for you in criminals and terrorists, a terrorist threat both in europe. i know north america since we'll have enough gummy. so if you did look out, i mean, i'm talking about dealing with serious organized trauma, trafficking,
1:15 pm
lots of dealing with trafficking, those truck defense in terrorism. and i think the point that was made, but you know, it's only allowing, like counter terrorism agencies, policing agencies in the u. k. will be like the national con, you know, a, we agency those things. he wasn't giving 70 police force. it was like when we were in the european union, michigan information system, which was a database that wasn't a balance of the police force in the u. k. it was only to send an offices and the pounds. i just happens and all of them in the united states were, were abuse. we just abuse. so if it was, if it was utilized and executed for what it was written up more than a 100 percent, if it oversight was proper on it. and i think it would be a great tool, i think that, but we just, we always take something that's, that's meant to be some way. and we just, we water it down and we abuse it. it's about giving who has access was a day to store and also destroying data with collins. and it's
1:16 pm
are making sure those safeguards in place. and that's why i said, you need judicial scrutiny. what's to make it say that it doesn't go all the way down to again, the lowest common denominator, which is the citizen and detective, or a st. cap, shriek up as a bad day, and he wants to go through all the backlog of your activity for last 6 months and charge you for a crime that you committed. 34 months ago. poland on a collision course with brussels at saft of also stop court rule. some european laws clash with the countries constitution. and the timing's making the issue even more acute as parents currently seeking billions of year as an e e. e recovery funds it oliver reports. there are shots fired in that confrontation between warsaw and brussels and the constitutional tribunal. poland talk court is basically said that the polish constitution has precedence over you law in the country. the primacy of constitutional law over other sources of law,
1:17 pm
results directly from the constitution of the republic of poland. this has been clearly confirmed by the constitutional tribunal. it's very important to point out the polish prime minister mathias more vertically says this isn't a sign that poland is about to try and leave the european union. in fact, he says his country has no intention of doing just that. but we are hearing again things that sound like breaks it. remember briggs? it caused to do, it hasn't gone anywhere yet. well, now we're hearing about polk that doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but it is what it is. in fact, here in germany, the press is full this morning of talk about this being a legal polk said that poland has essentially, by making this ruling the try to pull itself out of the legal frameworks of the european union and france deeply unhappy as well. we've heard air condemnation from paris or the european commission has said that they have serious concerns about this ruling from the courts, while other
1:18 pm
e. u officials are clearly far from happy at this move, the verdict in poland cannot remain without consequences. the primacy of you law must be undisputed violating it means challenging. one of the founding principles of our union ease states must not stand by idly. when the rule of law continues to be dismantled by the polish government. neither can the european commission or money can't finance governments which mark and the gates are jointly agreed rules or this. it could be a go a different way though, could be because these rulings from the courts only become law when they're published by the polish government. now, what could happen is the could take this ruling from the constitutional tribunal and go, we'll pop that in a drawer for now, and maybe we'll look at it a little later because what you have at the moment is a situation whereby poland isn't getting tens of billions from the european union in covey recovery money, poland can look at other member states, have already received their cash. you're already spending their cash and wondering
1:19 pm
well what, how we going to make sure we get out? so we may well see this ruling from the court used as some type of bargaining chip to try and find a rapprochement between warsaw and brussels. but it certainly doesn't look good at the moment in some of the concern that's been shown from the european side. certainly justified, as poland says, essentially the rules and its country supercede, those of the european union careless, bring in palo vanity. now he's a fellow, the hamburg institute of events steady validity, palo are correspond just he just said that paul and stop court ruling the local laws. and the more significant than european law is, is that a surprise to you while it does a supplier to me? first of all, because i think a constitution not a single state is always to blur, sees that the european laws, because europe was, are unable to give or to solve the constitution over 50 years. we don't have any
1:20 pm
written constitution on the european union and the, the, so i think the, according to the old principal sausage charity a constitution which is the supreme law of a county should always supersede. or there you will be an union knows this is a technical matter more than the political matter. obviously has been turning to a political matter are for a number of reasons. when, when are you able to pull on the receiver? got billions of you was for or under dominion. so the was for the coven recovery plan. i will measure every, every single state, if you will, please receiving european your money for recovering. so i think is a pretty technical affair that should be technically sold a more than politically, because a lot she always be considered for my legal technical point of view. otherwise, we have to pay balance of politics above the locals and not talking about mine or
1:21 pm
knowles. and we talked about the constitution, which are every single european state has a constitution. the only state that which didn't pay the constitution was the united kingdom, which is as you know, and we mentioned so many times is along a part of the european union was in the european union, every single state of the union as a constitution and the constitution must be respected, and hon or it, because is a return fundamental document for their well being that i would say for their very being all the state is on the whole point of being in the though that you sign up to its sets laws. it's standard this regulations, is this not going to be a threat to the in you and its powers? what probably yes is going to be attractive mother, wendy. you all fissions, they mention the referendum. i would like to remind them that there were full n when paul and they had been asked to have
1:22 pm
a friend to join the european union because in italy for you. so we did a nominal random to join the european union was just a political decision taken by the part of the government in 2003, while a lot of think change from 2003 actually almost done. 20 answer actually and many things change in paula is to that paul on got a lot of money from the european union says doesn't for until now. but he's also tune and poland must be respected in its own decisions. and never again, especially because we are talking about a supreme law of the county, which is the constitution. so clearly, i think should have been this issue shouldn't be dealt with a committee with talk with legal, legal experts more than on the political basis. because politics always involves a certain degree of brutality with respect to the laws. and so i don't think the
1:23 pm
european union likes to act brutally to words. one obvious member stays. so i might not a power surge interrupted my no like to be brutal, but he can't afford another nation to leave briggs. it was, it was a shambles. and, and it, and it kind of really damage the reputation of the u. s. a few other countries start saying, well, we're going to kind of, we're going to make our own laws and we'll pick and choose which ones we want. julie, that's a threat now to the yeah, yes, i a part of the i perfectly agree with you. but remember, i don't see a difference finance united kingdom and poland and having witnessed the situation of polo and the relations which are very tense. and they are getting more and more tense over the mumps between the war watson and war. so i will say, why don't we think about the for random also for poland? i mean, okay, you say you cannot afford, that's fine. but then why?
1:24 pm
why the british are better than the polish? i don't think so. and i afforded a dare to ask people if they wanted to be part of the union or not to my understanding as being a great move so far back sister. but has been decided by the british people in a very democratic way. so if the things get more and more times with poem, less give voice once again to the polish people. polish people are very responsible people. they know what they do. and they knew that in, in 2003 ah, french minister, a u ups minister ball just sad the while, 80 medium people. so in favor of the european union, there are not 80 medium p polls in the war. the polish people are little less than 40000000, and they were little less than 40000000 when they decided forever for and on to join the european union. with a good majority,
1:25 pm
the referral got the majority of 75 percent in 2003, which is definitely a good majority. but if things going are going like that, i will say latin. the polish people decide papa, you said that he said that this is likely to become a legal battle and the will need to pull it. it's a legal authority and thought, what we want to know is all this should be a legal. yeah, legal isa should be set up a committee with the members of all the european union states and to decide what is a yorkie of the sources of lot in a different way. so there is law and document officially stating that the costa dushan should be superseded by laws enacted by the european union. so that, that was a major fellow not too wide to cost or not to approve the constitution for the european union. but this would be like, would have been
1:26 pm
a super constitution also binding and also superior in terms of your, of your sources to the local constitutions. but i'm afraid the door is not such a european union constitution. and i think her, are we all a lot in europe to our constitution and which well, most of them are in germany where i am now in italy. they were written and approve after the devastating war the 2nd, as we know most of them. oh, after major that will show like a spanish constitution after the full factor. so when we oh, the mass respect to the state constitution and also the european union is sure to find the way. but i would say, 1st of all, on the illegal term by dialogue, by setting up committees of legal experts on
1:27 pm
a year or kill service. if it is the does not happen, i will say, i'm fain, we should think about of a polish referendum the same way. and that the, the refer and the was that was done in the britain in january of this year. and because otherwise we are just in the deadlock, we are, we are just unable to move for wars. and the cries is still will to my understanding only increase over the next mouse because we have seen so many crisis now been named as so many intentions between the european union and the poll and over the last year. ok palo rapidly there. appreciate your time, paula bennett. im i guess fill out the hamburg institute of advanced study. thank you. thank you so much and thank you on the wraps it up. indeed fall this news, our own fat with more than 30 minutes either
1:28 pm
good. is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? isolation, whole community? are you going the right way or are you being led to so 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.
1:29 pm
ah, with the by been ministrations decision to leave. afghanistan was correct and long overdue. however, the way america longest war ended is a different question. it was a botched affair. the generals will most likely never be held to account, put alone marine. we can, a colonel does face court martial. is this justice? 0 $1.00 lady reporting i just thought about around 4 year olds, finding a done and accidentally shooting into them. a gun violence is a uniquely american prob,
1:30 pm
good fire isn't uncommon around with the local skate grain. 19 year old man, shot gun violence takes the life of a young african american man. every 5 hours is driven and because of where he spent the of the young life chicken while handling the loaded guy here, he's rather accidentally shot here. we were playing with a gun with me. it is recovering after being shot. i called go dad ever shirley. she was virtually recognizable miraculously survived. but with life changing in my 2 intruders in his house by kwasic park, intertwined with devastating before as well through the individual, has to live with her and how it all unfold. it ah.
