and you would be in parliament passes a non binding resolution seeking to ban police use of facial recognition software in public places and me pings a hailing it as a major victory. i'll guess debated the issue. this is good news. european 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. ah, very good evening to you. thanks for joining me on our team international. what we begin in afghanistan, where dozens of people have reportedly died in an explosion. it is she a mosque, this is in the countries neldon city of condos. you may find these images coming up now of the aftermath of distressing the blast occurred during friday. pres, would they packed congregation inside?
2:02 pm
dozens of people are reported to have been killed, and any more injured a suicide bomber was said to be behind the attack. the taliban is blame the isis cateris group, which carried out the campbell airport brass in august. that's off scores of people killed. this latest incident follows a deadly explosion on sunday. at another mosque in the country's capital. and it all comes just 2 months since the taliban swept back to power, filling the void left by the u. s. lead withdraw. local journalist visited the site of this latest blast and sent this report today at 1 pm this afternoon during prayers here at i. e, she, i'm mosque and couldn't, does a bomb exploded and i witness to say at 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
2:03 pm
a blast in the past, hitting mosques and killing worshippers as them with faith, we're targeting she on the era. there were targeting chia in syria. they were targeting here 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 that them, it's b because they're concerned that she are, 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 that belies afghanistan to actually these to believe that taliban rule and of denison. so this is busy the beginning and i wouldn't be surprised actually more of the big lee at that slide miss will take place and our fuel. we sent them among sir, ahead. democrats said america ah, going all out with their calls for a crackdown on facebook following the claims of a company whistleblower. although now turns out frances,
2:04 pm
how good as close ties to the party since she fell to mention while demanding action against her. now, former employer, facebook's products, harm children, stroke decision and weaken 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. so let's try to entangle this francis how gin is being represented by a co found of whistle blower. 8 john tie, he served in the a bomb administration, feel the co founder of the organization which helps whistleblowers pay the lowest phases. mog said he was a legal rep for alexander of inman white house staffer who testified in donald trump's 1st impeachment trial. max blumenthal editor in chief of the gray, so highlighted other alleged links and says, political affiliation doesn't come as any shook her testimony dovetails very closely with the democrat censorship agenda. their plan or their desire
2:05 pm
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 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, jenn, saki, i actually used to be employed as a senior advisor by bryson juliette. what's clear here is that democratic operatives were not, if these reports are true, are providing 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
2:06 pm
crafted testimony. so she's not as a, an actual whistleblower. she is a political operative advancing a cohesive agenda once more it's most trans. his how can he's a regular donor to democrat affiliated organizations, which help party candidates get elected legally made analysts, lionel and max blumenthal again, gave us that take on the facebook allegations and also 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 of. 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 semi pornographic content on instagram and the way it degrades women of feminist
2:07 pm
could get behind it. but behind it all as 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 some, one of the were on your phone on your mo bile and you said something politically piquant and all the sudden your phone went dead because your carrier says car,
2:08 pm
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 cash, blah blah blah, blah blah. as gretta would say, calls are growing in the u. s. to slam new sanctions on russia over the nord stream to pipeline that says in light of year of energy crisis that comes on the days after vladimir putin and pledge to ramp up natural gas applies to europe as prices as hit record highs. marty's donald quarter took on colleague in, in o'neill through the details. they're basically being accused of trying to
2:09 pm
artificially keep the price 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. and 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 putin 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,
2:10 pm
influenced by russia, but angle a merkel herself has said that russia fulfills all of its obligations in these contracts that are voluntarily made between russia and the european union. d 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 leg 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.
2:11 pm
let's take a listen to what he said. said your list of 30 pm ago. still, the us openly say that cooperation with russia is contrary to europe's energy security interests. they want to directly embroiled 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 prom, 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. marcus, which a curriculum believes that sanctions against an old stream to the top of europe, this the priorities the pipeline has been completed and it's, it's 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,
2:12 pm
but the pressure is going to be substantially get this over the line if with 2 months from now on, 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 the end of the day. your p is always going to choose to keep the lights on over. 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 may caught last grounds. we know we've obviously had a cold windsor 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. european lawmakers are pushing for
2:13 pm
a ban on facial recognition systems being used by police. the parliament passed a non binding resolution against the biometric surveillance, which sir made any 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 resolution calls for a ban on funding or deploying programs that could result in the indiscriminate mass surveillance. the document also emphasizes the importance of human supervision in any final decision making. and urge is authorities to be more transparent by using open source software. this not the 1st move against excessive surveillance in 2019 san francisco became the 1st city in america to enact a complete ban on police, biometric surveillance of the u. s. cities then followed that lead. we discussed
2:14 pm
the pros and cons of facial recognition with terrorism and security expert david low and former u. s. 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 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 abuse of authority. i don't think it's a good idea and it should have put police in this mindset of that everybody's a criminal is good news in criminals and terrorists, a terrorist threat both in europe. i know north america since we'll have enough dummy. so if you did look out,
2:15 pm
i mean i'm talking about dealing with serious organized trauma, trafficking, lots of dealing system trafficking, those truck offensive 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 you wouldn'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 available. so the police force in the u. k. there was only to certain 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 that i think 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
2:16 pm
a day to store and also destroying dates. it with hollins on it's 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 a citizen and a detective or a st. cops shriek up as a bad day and he wants to go through all the backlog of your activity for the last 6 months and charge you for a crime that you committed 34 months ago. the 1st time since the very creation of the nato alliance, 2 of its members of sun, their own defense backed the greek parliament today ratified. to deal with france for the 1st time in explicit and unequivocal military assistance calls is provided in the case of a 3rd party attack on one of the 2 states. we all know who's threatening whom were the cause for war in the eastern mediterranean the existing nato
2:17 pm
obligations of greece and france already make them military allies in the event of an attack originating from outside the block. but with greece and turkey currently loggerheads over territory in the eastern mediterranean, athens is put in a new level of support. but speaking earlier this week, night as chief it outlined is opposition to any such deals. what i don't believe in is efforts to try to do something outside the native framework or compete with or duplicate nato, because nato remains the corner started the bedrock for european security and also actually for north american security. while the new patches, the 1st between them estates is not the only defense, still involving nato man. this signed of late just a few weeks ago. the u. k. in u. s. hopped into bed with australia and the deal little c nuclear powered submarines controlling the indo pacific region for the spring. and notice maria's now he's a former m e p and a professor of a u institutions at the university of crete. very good. even see notice m s a,
2:18 pm
but this is, is a unusual scenario. you've got, you've got less is called this a club nato. you've got this military club and it seems that 2 members don't trust the other members to come to their rescue when required. and so they've made their own private deal. is that what it is our misjudging is it that they just don't trust the others to come to help them if needed? well, actually, 505. the nato subsitute does not cover any new threats among the alliance members. and you know that we have because they the lab why dorky against greece and natal does not cover all of these issues and the credits from 30, so research won't be dr. lead to sign an agreement with for, and say, you know, to have actually an assistant close in case the
2:19 pm
rates if. busy not the by 30, so i've got a big to opt out of the defense back sign between greece and france. if any of these items up against the delivery, then the other party is going to assist the end. it can use also armed forces. so this is something that the greece wanted for a long time. actually i had the chance to propose this. busy and the european parliament, when mister micron visited us, it was on the 17th of april of 2018. and i asked that mr. marker on whether it was good to sign an agreement with recent that we actually give health and military has to release and gaze not the good news was
2:20 pm
and that i missed the micro and i have been the positive then we had all the discussions between the great government and the, and the promise, and now we have a great out the creation of this agreement between the recent process. i think it's a step forward as an important step for the security issues in the, in the bed in the area at this percent me the got the unit pieces. busy of raise and i think that becky now will think twice whether it will be new or not that it's cost to do that against you know that we can we why you lation or space break asked space by military blame. we have who, why are lation of while? right, so raised by 30 and now i think 30 is going to think about it because it has to
2:21 pm
take it out. but now we have actually the military close, which is written in up to of the defense back to sign with, with friends. well, you say took, he's going to have to think about it now, but does this not start the ball rolling? won't it have other countries within nato thinking? well, if they go to pair up, maybe we should do the same. will still stop turkey looking for someone to partner with the create an even greater military force. well, lead groups because no, any after years have gone through, which is interesting for its own defense and defense on that. so i don't think that there were allies, we've been made that said the signed an agreement which you will be up against. the agree, if it's a defense agreement,
2:22 pm
then there's no problem because actually does not have any views and actions against me. but i think that by thinking this should be a reason from so send a message at 230 that showed that by there, by the national low, you know, you can to members of an alliance. the recent and a member of the alliance of the allies which can be clem. it got was reggie in case the risk expense its own that he thought, what that is to well, we're not that lives at risk as this right. that would be to the international law or the to the united nations that on the, on the see. and you can not cover as so called the knowledge the light did say that bliss can not go on with its own right. sort of national
2:23 pm
lo notice in stoughton burke said that there's no need for any inter organization deals. he said that the, the original nato packed that is the gold standards. he's not going to be happy that this has happened when the christopher, but the john said to give her a solution for. busy you because he knows it and actually go to inform him many times says that. busy he has the lab there has been against grace. it is not biding by the much low in the sense that the greek islands do not belong to the something that was the last few days. go by becky. so the 2nd thing that i love made to hit the johnson is to put that in its own place. and then we had to abide by international law. but not the bank has not done
2:24 pm
anything. in this case. he tried to play it as a neutral player and so research at the no other than to ask another may to. busy member which is for answer it to support the case of the security issues in the, in the but we had especially in the genario. so now it for 30 that's a very good that it's already written. then sure of the browser will come and sit in this article, stipulate that the part of is that can be used also on force if in fact is taking place against that, that it go to a private. so everything is very clear. and i think that this agreement was also taking place because of the case of our course because of france.
2:25 pm
now it is more let's say active in that. busy in every out of the united states is welcoming its own. let's say, what are you already in the west creek in, in the, in the pacific area. there, so grips now our enter and france gets its answer to saying this agreement. and the other issue is also that mrs. mckayla is not there anymore in power because last year last september, missus, american block, the potential be learn that was going to be science between grew sir and fram, sir. as against this sir. busy busy what's your last answer back? now dis, thank you so much for your time. my guess is our not this maria's from an e p and a current professor for you institutions at university. great, thanks so much. thank you for having me. none of these pollings on
2:26 pm
a collision course with brussels. it's after war, sauce top court ruled that some european union laws clash with the country's constitution. the timing makes issue even more acute, as parents currently seeking billions of heroes in e recovery funds, me to oliver explains 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 ah, hath precedent over you law in the country. the primacy of constitutional law over other sources of law, 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 material 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?
2:27 pm
it caused to do it hasn't gone anywhere yet. well, now we're hearing about polk sits. 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 tried 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 commissioners said that they have serious concerns about this ruling from the courts. while other 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
2:28 pm
gates are jointly agreed rules or this. it could be a go a different way though, cuz this 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 coves recovery money. poland can look at other member states. we've already received their cash. you're already spending their cash and wondering well what, how we going to make sure we get ours? 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. if in
2:29 pm
history professor palmer bernardine believes, if brussels are more soft and start talking, poland could follow the u. k. out of the exit door. ah, there is law undocumented officially stating that the constitutions should be superseded by laws enacted by the european you saw that that was a major failure not to lighter a cost or not what to the constitution for the european union, but this would be like, would have been a super constitution also by the anger 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. ok, so when we owe the mass respect to the state constitution, sir, and also the european union should find their way. but i would say, 1st of all, on the illegal term by dialogue by setting up an committees of legal experts on the
2:30 pm
iraqi or source. if it is a does not happen, i will say, i'm afraid we should to think about of a polish for, for, and among the same way. and that the, the for, and the was that was the done in the britain in january of this year. because otherwise, we're all just in a deadlock, we are, we are just unable to move for wars. and the cries is so will, to my understanding only increase over the next mouse because we have seen so many quizes now been named as so many intentions between the european union and the a poll. and over the last year k, that brings up today. don't forget you can check out more news on our website. had to r t dot com. mm.
