and nearby parliament passes in a binding resolution seeking to ban police use of facial recognition software and public places that me piece hailing it. a major victory. i'll guess debate the issue is good news, reordering 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 nail ah evening. welcome to auntie international, where we start this hour in afghanistan because dozens of people who reportedly died in an explosion at a sheer mosque in the countries milton city of condos. you may find these images coming up, the aftermath disturbing the last half enjoying friday. prayers with a pat congregation, dozens of people were reported to have been killed,
3:02 pm
and many more injured. a suicide bomber was said to be behind the attack. the taliban is blamed the isis k terrorist group which carried out the cobble airport blast in august that saw scores of people die. this latest incident follows a deadly explosion on sunday. at another mosque in the country's capital. it all comes just 2 months after the taliban swept back to power, filling the void, left by the us, led withdraw. local journalists visited the site of the blast and sent this report . today at 1 pm this afternoon during prayers here at i. e. she eyed mosque and couldn't duz. at bomb exploded and i witnessed the said least 100 people were killed. the explosion was so powerful, according to some officials, the new taliban government had warned a tax 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 a blast in the past hitting mosques and killing worshippers with faith. we're
3:03 pm
targeting here and there are, there were targeting chia in syria. they were targeting chia everywhere in the middle east. so that i wouldn't be surprised that this is, as i said, you know, this is actually the work of them expired because nichols said that she are, is there any, is there another would believe are over now? so this is, this is the execute. but i mean, the major aim is to these that belies afghanistan tool. actually these to believe that taliban rule and i've been, is that so this is the beginning and i wouldn't be surprised actually more of the big li at that slide miss will take place. and a few weeks a month. so ahead. democrats in the u. s. congress saw going all out with calls for a track down on facebook fellows, the claims of a company whistle blower. but it now turns out francis how good hands close ties to
3:04 pm
the party. something she did mention while demanding action against her. now, former employer case looks products, harm children, stoke decision and week in our democracy. the companies 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. ok strand untangle is francis hogan is being represented by a co founder of whistleblower aid, john ty, who served in the obama administration there the co founder of the organization, which helps whistleblowers pay their lowest fees. is mark zaid. he was a legal rep for alexander vin. men a white house staffer who testified in donald trump's 1st impeachment trial. mike's blumenthal editor in chief of the grey zone, highlighted souther alleged links and says, political affiliation shouldn't come as a shock. her testimony dovetails very closely with the democrat censorship agenda.
3:05 pm
their plan or their desire to heavily sensor social media. frances, how gin was pushing that agenda. if it's true that bryson gillette, the strategic communications firm that is reportedly advising francis how going 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. let me, whose press secretary, gen saki i actually used to be employed as a senior advisor by bryson july 1. what's clear here is that democratic operatives were not picking up if these reports are true, are providing that p r advice and promotion to francis how going a previously unknown figure, who is instantly verified by twitter, the day of her carefully coordinated and crafted testimony. so she's not as a,
3:06 pm
an actual whistleblower. she is a political operative advancing a cohesive agenda. once more, it's immersed the francis house as a regular donut democrats affiliated organizations, which help party candidates get elected, legal and media unless lionel plus 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, 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
3:07 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 you 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,
3:08 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, pools are growing in the u. s. to slap new sanctions on russia over the node stream to pipeline, the lights of europe's energy crisis becomes days after vladimir putin pledge to ramp up natural gas supply syrup as prices and hit record highs. auntie is donald quarter, took my colleague in and o'neill through the details. they're basically being accused of trying to artificially keep the price of natural gas as high as possible
3:09 pm
. 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, influenced by russia, but angle a merkel herself has said that russia fulfills all of its obligations in these
3:10 pm
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 russia 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, european partner is against moscow. let's take a listen to what he said said your list of 30 pm will go to still. the us openly
3:11 pm
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. so 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 nord stream to pipeline, this would save the company billions of dollars. mark is what chicago and billy sanctions against military. and to unk stealth of europe, 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, but the pressure is going to be substantially get this over the line if with 2
3:12 pm
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 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. european lawmakers are pushing for a ban on facial recognition systems is by police. the parliament has passed
3:13 pm
a non binding resolution against biometric surveillance, which some and the piece compare 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 ban on funding or deploying programs that could result in indiscriminate, massive valence. 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. so the 1st move against success is surveillance in 2019 san francisco was the 1st city in america to enact complete ban on police, biometric surveillance. other us cities followed. we discussed the pros and cons of the system with terrorism expert david low and former u. s. police officer. dominic is i, there's a great saying in law enforcement that when you're a hammer, everything looks like
3:14 pm
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. i'm missing persons or i terrorist activity, but i don't care who says what, it'll always be used down your lowest common denominator, which is your citizen. and it will be abused like crazy your than actively putting a tool in the police, his 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, 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 county. so if you did look out, i mean, i'm talking about dealing with serious organized trauma, trafficking, lots of dealing with trafficking, those truck defense in terrorism. and i think the point that was made,
3:15 pm
but you know, it's only allowing, like counter terrorism agencies, policing agencies in the u. k will be like the national con, one, you know, the agency, those things he wasn't giving to every police force. it was like when we were in the european union, michigan information system, which was a database that wasn't available. so every 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 worry, abuse we just to be with. 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 as a data store and also destroying data with collins and 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
3:16 pm
down to again, the lowest common denominator, which is the citizen and a detective, or a st. kept 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. it's after walsall talk, court rule, some european union laws clash with the country's constitution, and the timing makes issue even more acute with poland. currently seeking billions of euros in you recovery funds into oliver holes. there are shots fired in that confrontation between warsaw and brussels and the constitutional tribunal. poland top 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, results directly from the constitution of the republic of poland. this has been
3:17 pm
clearly confirmed by the constitutional tribunal. it's very important to point out the polish prime minister material more of it. he 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 that room breaks at a cost to do it. hasn't gone anywhere yet. well, now we're hearing about politics. it 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 tried to pull itself out of the legal frameworks of the european union and france deeply unhappy as well. we've heard our condemnation from paris. the european commission has 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
3:18 pm
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 mock and the 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 covey recovery money, poland can look at other member states, have already received their cash. you're already spending their cash and wondering 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
3:19 pm
to try and find a rapprochement between warsaw and brussels. but it certainly doesn't look good at the moment. and 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, european history professor, palo bernardine, believes at brussels in warsaw. don't start talking. poland could follow the u. k. out of the eas exit doors constitutional not a single state is always super, sees that the you appear laws because europe was unable to give or to solve the constitution over 50 years. we owe the mass respect to the state constitution. and also the european union should find their way, but i would say, 1st of all, on the illegal tower by dialogue, by setting up committees of legal experts on the iraqi or source. if it is a does not happen, i will say, i'm afraid we should to think about
3:20 pm
a polish for a friend of mine the same way. and that the for, and the was that was done in the britain enjoy of this year. because otherwise we are just in a deadlock, we are, we are just unable to move for wars. and the cries is still will to my understanding the only increase over the next month, because we have seen so many crisis now, but many with and so many intentions between the european union and a poland. over the last year, turkey has joined algeria in lashing out at the french president after emanuel microns suggest that there was no algerian nation before french colonial rule, and cra branded matrons words. a populace move ahead of next year's presidential election and france. turkey in algeria are now part of an expanding list of nations, currently loggerheads with paris salad. davinsky explains france isn't having the
3:21 pm
easiest of times it seems to be handling on multiple fronts internationally. and was that it's waging offer some foibles take. i'll g re a frances form, a colony, it's resisting president mccord's attempt to draw the line, and it has an ax to grind that didn't go down well and then to add insult to injury. my home blamed hatred towards france. young algerians hole in the political military system, which should re written history based on lies when questioned what is held uria was there in algeria nation before french colonization. that's the question. i'll jury a post 1900. 62 is built on
3:22 pm
a memorial. rent that declares france is the whole problem. hugh, a recall done baset debt, while algeria also plays it as space, see the french military notes? colonial presses are not to welcome the country. essentially said, this amnesia which pushes process official relations with some of our countries into unfortunate crisis situation should be resolved through unconditional mutual respect. that's not the only trouble for a sing. franks in africa. marley has a summons. the french ambassador for split nations furious that crawled, seeks to withdraw its troops. he can still think that he can hold the fort by sabre rattling it. if you are near the left hand to button, the situation arising from the end of operation back on puts molly in a fe accompli bundling nose mid flight to assist. thank and it forces us to explore
3:23 pm
alternatives and means to better insure a security ominously or with other partners. and then there is this, oh my te castro fee. there was no way that we could have taken this decision without it having and causing deep disappointment. and hood to, to france this, this, there's no way we could have avoided that if it wasn't bad enough, that a strange country which ranks a few more than several runs below france and military strength shocked it all for a rendezvous with the u. s. it also invited the briggs buck and he is alone for the jolly, the french what serious and found themselves crying out. which brings us to the u. k.
3:24 pm
my horn has often been compared to napoleon the will he get caught in the nets. of is very own waterloo, francis, so incense over the u. k. 's refusal to let explanation troll they catch in british waters. it's even threatening to cut the country's electricity supply. surely it would make more sense to just pass on the increasing costs of energy to the bricks, making them pay double. but no mcenroe government is forcing a battle of wills who will blink 1st. all of this comes as a friendship president is set to face his stay 1st competition to date. as the presidential election hurtles closer, many at suggesting the only person who blow a hole in makins hopes is well himself trans has lost its position for some
3:25 pm
time already. i would say, since the end of, as president transit is lost, its position on the global stage of france has decided to follow the steps to the united states and nato. and we've seen the catastrophe of that in afghanistan and iraq in extreme savio. we've seen that france is totally lost. it macro is just living on the orals at france just to have and i was just finding out that this power that france started had, he just doesn't have it. he's not the only one. he's just the one which is a he is the president wishes exposing this to the public that france is no longer the power. it used to think it was one of the busiest rows in britain was brought to a grinding halt. here again today in the latest predators spike climate activist group insulate britain estate. the number of similar stuns over the last couple of weeks and it's been to force the government to think more green, but it's causing many motorist. is that to see red shadow edges?
3:26 pm
dashti explains jackie behind me is in see late britain, as you can see, they are located in the road here in central london that project their aim, their mission is environmental action. they want the government to heed that open message that cause he as much disruption as possible trying to back up the roads of central london. what they want is the government connections to retrofit and insulate all kinds properly and to make them more energy efficient by 2030, something they're asking, the government to advertise immediately is led to the whole into the u. k. is, is what the law in your fruit really to the government. it's one of the 1st and easy things to be doing. so we're in a serious, desperate, desperate situation. so the government needs to act and now we go very high fuel prices decide. maybe we're going to have more than $2400000.00 households and fewer probably. within a couple of months, i do have more than a half 1000 pension is going in our country this winter. i don't know. i totally
3:27 pm
understand people's anger. i can't sit by while pension is a dying, that i have enough money to tell me. all the other methods petitions, march is appealing letters to n p. i. bill, all of these things, nothing, no action and we are 2 different today. nobody wants to picking the vote district. good people getting on there a way nobody wants to do that. we're doing it with content to actually do something . it's total con it already, and they very just been here for a few minutes. it comes despite the government taking a fresh injunction just last week. banning, insulate members from obstructing the roads, obstructing the traffic, particularly on the no to a is an a road in and around london as well. and people in and around this round about are incredibly angry. you're not letting bosses cause is wanting bus it. cities only function with public transport. you call block populate crowd. because
3:28 pm
i'm a, i understand what he's doing. he's going to be late as a bomb, angry. i'm just going to deal with, well, it seems as though insulate personally don't have the public on site. they also don't have the politicians on site either, or is johnson just a few days ago, labeled these protesters as irresponsible and impossible across these are the tensions right here are quite high indeed as a huge please your presence. they haven't yet arrested anybody, but that's only a matter of time until they change their minds. ah, with
3:29 pm
we've been here for around an hour or so, and there's been at least a dozen arrests, but they're still around a dozen protesters that have literally themselves out to the rose. i've spoken to a few people that have now being arrested one woman who was arrested 9. 2 times so she's prepared to go to prison for this course. and so she's doing this simply for a better world in the future. i've already been arrested for and i'll keep doing it . i that the government start taking notice. insulated houses as it should be very, very simple as a start date, just to use the money to go into aging houses. walker carrying on with building or build re accommodate that killing the economy. i mean, it's about time, they started being long. so under these and you measures these protesters could be child up to 6 months and receive hefty fines as well. which campaign is a complete denial of their right to peacefully protest?
3:30 pm
and as annoying as this group may be, would anybody be talking about them if they weren't so destructive? this group at least say it was the government and the government had to stop this all in a moment. it of course, may conceive too bad demands since your company are up to date more in half an hour . no, welcome to sophie co visionaries, me so if it shower at night, say where our guest today is an extraordinary man in our senses. and i don't know if you recognized him. he is a graphic novelist. he's the wizard of arts. literally. she says on his books he says, writer and performer have i forgot.
