i mean with artificial intelligence, real, someone in the demon a robot must protect its own existence with a russia a diplomatic mission. my attention. now is this the result of a diplomatic retaliation? a confirmation of the decreased power? the organization is holding. we'll read a story as well as our expert will weigh in about what this could mean for the nato alliance moving forward. and the chinese continue their quest all to dominate in multiple international arena. the latest film looks to break the box office records at home and abroad, however, is, is more about the quality of the film. but the economic state of the discretionary spending of those outside of china. we're going to discuss and gang members in
princeton kidnapped 17 north american missionaries and their families. we're going to bring you the latest developments and why haiti has one of the highest rates of kidnapping in the world. and back at home democrats in congress are actually looking to blue, one of their own and support for their social spending bill all by giving in and budgeting money for coal and gas plants. but is this the right move? well, we're going to give you the $360.00 view plus we know what caused the southern california coastline to be covered with crude. and we're going to tell you what has been done to prevent it from happening again. i'm kind of use and we're going to give you the 360 view of these stories right here are to america. today's me, you to you. ah, thanks for joining us. your brushes, the spinning it, the permanent mission to nato, as is all a response to the alliance,
kicking out several russian diplomats allegedly for spying ortiz, roman cusser off, has the story. russian foreign minister made the announcement on monday saying that says, starting on november 1st. moscow will completely suspend the operations of its mission to nato, and from now on any emergency communications between the u. s. lead block and russia will be done through the russian embassy in belgium, while an ambassador, alpha, nate, a member states in moscow, chosen by the allies, can perform similar functions here in russia. so this cons, just 2 weeks after nato announced that it would expel a russian diplomats for a legit undisclosed espionage at its brussels headquarters. and that should be in effect on the 1st of november as well. well, according to the russian foreign ministry, it became yet another move on nato's behalf to use the so called russian threats as
a unifying factor for the alliance. and another reason to remain in international demand is here from the russian foreign minister. 0 explanation was given for the expulsions and a few days before the announcement we met with mister stilton burke in new york. he stressed that nato had a sincere interest in normalizing relations with russia, so as to deescalate tensions on the european continent. but we weren't particularly surprised by the decision. it all confirmed that nature was uninterested in equal dialogue or join work. sir dale, i rove, added that the nato information bureau and moscow will also be shut down as a result. why? meanwhile, the nato international secretary and has already been notified and the russian foreign ministry statement added that it is not expecting any shift in relationship with nato in the near future. by me now to discuss is that daniel mcadams,
executive director at the ron paul, if you're daniel. thank you so much for joining me. thanks for me. scottie. okay, so after everything that the countries have all gone through the alliance of russia, what role did nato actually serve for russia? well, you know, the nato russia relation a sort of microcosm of russia, us relations now, and nato has been increasingly irrelevant. we've seen, you know, stuart and burn, desperate for attention desperate to be noticed, the by did ministration, has really not treated nato any more relevantly than the trump administration did. so i think what you're seeing really is a desperate for attention on one hand, and some be a little deeper on the other hand that we can get into. well, you're right. i think it's like, look, look, we're doing something, even though if it might be counterproductive to what the overall goal would be. but daniel, you know, do you think, you know, our package stated this was an, obviously because of the response to expulsion of russian diplomats. but i had to think back and you know, there's a pass between the 2 countries. do you think these years and i almost decades of
accusations by nato countries which continue to be proven wrong and wrong time time again, without any apologies or reconciliation actually played a factor that this just might have been just the final match that struck? well, that's a great point, scotty. and if we remember during the trump administration, trump was saying one thing about relations with russia and nato was saying something completely different, something very hostile, something very aggressive, and really undermining the position of the us administration. they seem to be speaking and completely different terms, and i think what we're seeing now is russia making the point, and of course, the explosion of these 18 was sort of precipitating factor making the point to nato, you know, hey, what can brother, you're pretty irrelevant. go take a hike and i think that's what the effect of this as well, but the one thing that does have me concern, do you think this could actually be used as sort of a motivator could possibly have an effect on nato expansion. we have other countries that like ukraine,
that's been wanting to get in. do you think nato could respond and say ok, fine. you went act like this? obviously, a little brother, the little brother's going to act up and bring in some other people that you might actually find to be in conflict with. that is a good point and it's not an accident. i don't believe understanding how russian diplomacy works, that it was literally on the day that the us defense secretary, secretary austin, who was turned out to be quite a cypher, quite completely incompetent in his job. he was meeting with the georgian defense minister, talking about increasing cooperation with georgia. he's now going to go off to meet with ukraine. and on top of that, the u. s. and ukraine assigned, i think, what, 10 different agreements since august, talking about closer, closer cooperation with the u. s. and i think the criminal spokesman to meet your paragraph said, i believe it was today or yesterday that this is a red line for russia. and meeting ukraine into natal is a red line for russia,
and russia would take it extremely seriously. and as people who follow. busy russian politics understand, this is not bluster, this is just a simple statement of russia's interests and daniel africa with every fear. right now we look at what all of the red flags are grandfather on. the biggest concern that most countries that we've seen the past few weeks has been towards china. so do you think that in this case, this is a smart action on behalf of global peace? to have this now public battle between russia and nato, a lot at nato allies actually happening when everybody up until now for the last few weeks have been saying, we need to be very concerned about what's going on with china. whether you're talking about taiwan or you're talking about australia, well, you know, there is a kind of sclerosis and u. s. foreign policy, and i think we're seeing some of that as well. and this is, this is not something this driven by nato. i mean, this is driven in washington d. c. there's an inability to pivot. there's an inability to change. we're still talking about territorial warfare. so talking about russia taking over something or
trying to thinking over something, you know, there is no new thinking. washington. the thinking is driven by the military industrial complex, so it shouldn't be surprised that we see yet again, this and antagonism between the 2 countries re emerging and they are, i've asked this question for, i'm going to actually ask our audience to respond back on twitter right now, what good has nato actually done in the past decade for the world? which was the whole reason, i think why they were a savage. thanks for joining us on this. 17 american and canadian missionaries have been kidnapped by gang members and havi. they are among the latest victims in a country which is plagued by the rise of abductions for money or to correspondent molly borrows has the latest the $16.00 americans in one canadian or with christian aid ministries. the ohio based organization released a statement saying they've been kidnapped saturday on their way home from building an orphanage outside. porter prince. the abducted group includes 5 children,
including a toddler. police say the missionaries are being held by the notorious haitian gang known as the 400 meloza. the same group that kidnapped 5 catholic priests and 2 nuns earlier this year near the same place, but were later released. haiti has seen a huge surgeon violence and kidnapping since the reason assassination of their president followed by a deadly earthquake. they claimed one and 2000 lives. haitians say they're tired of the violence and instability. oh, when we hear there is a kid. now think the effect of the kidnapping, me know there's not going to be good for drivers, motorcycle drive. people do not go out in the street. we cannot find people to transport. we have a wife and 4 children, one and a family children look at because we have the responsibilities at home and stuff. no, well why? authority said a 400 moussa has all that taken over parts of haiti, while the government struggled to regain control. the gang is known for kidnapping large groups and typically demand ransoms of around $20000.00 in
u. s. dollars. u. s. officials say the f b i and state department officials are working to secure the release of the americans. but so far, don't know where the kid nat missionaries are for needs use use i, molly barrows? major development in the oil field that occurred on the coast of southern california, the orange county district attorney is calling it a criminal investigation. and so there's a culpability between the energy company at fault and their relationship with federal investigators are to correspond. and tosh suite has more on what is actually raising the red flags. new allegations from the district attorney of orange county says there is great cause for concern regarding this location, amplify energy. the company under scrutiny for the oil spell is housed in the same building as federal regulators, as more than 25000 gallons of crude oil spilled into the water off the coast of huntington beach. more than 2 weeks ago, investigator, se there's still piecing together exactly what happened right now. they're looking
at a $1200.00 foot cargo ship that may have dragged its inker or through an underwater oil pipeline, pulling it across the sea floor. but as more information is coming forward, todd spitzer, the orange county district attorney, says it's unlawful for the company under investigation. epa fi energy to be housed with federal regulators in long beach who are responsible for this investigation. spitzer has come out saying amplify energy light about the spills timeline. according to preliminary findings and alarm went off in the control room at 2 30 am saturday. that pressure had dropped in the pipeline indicating a possible league. amplify reportedly waited until 6 o 1 am to shut down the pipeline. but according to the ceo of amplify, the company wasn't aware of the spill until it saw a sheen on the water at 8 o 9 a. m. we're, we're not aware of any spell until 8 and i am on side one. i promise you, if we were aware of something on friday night, we, i promise you, we would have immediately stopped all operations and move forward. while the spill is not as large as initially thought, coastal residents are outraged. it's
a catastrophe. i mean, it happens all the time again, you know, over and over again, and there's a lot to be should do about it. and i don't understand why nobody came. so 10, so with those pipeline saw that they didn't even know whose pipeline to begin with . well, this bill has killed a good amount of wildlife. dozens of birds and other creatures were rescued. at least 2 birds had been released back into their original habitat. the district attorney maintains that amplified failed to act and is now calling for them to move out of this building, reporting for new to choose and conscious sweets. r t. most senators have a red line, but center joe mansion actually has a multiple before he will agree to the democrat spending bill from the environment to children. a jo once at all, but we'll get his wish history says no, we're going to give you the 360 view right after the break.
join me every thursday on the alex simon show, i'll be speaking to guess on the world of politics. sport, business. i'm show business, i'll see you then gives rise to the i question about these crises and who's behind them? we had the sub prime crisis that resulted in many printing that made the top get richer. we have the color crisis, which has resulted in the top getting richer because of all the money printer. and we had a war in afghanistan go on for decades, which resulted in money printing in the top get richer, you know, and, and, and then you can get into the other, you know, into some other areas as well, really making some hard,
making hard questions. ah, there is other voices to play with. mostly ruth, of seeing the daniels purely with the rest of the basilica or the other ones because melissa was assumable. it was just food safety. and then you would, you that is images levels up was good for supposedly good. have my did some i would say with music is images like a mom. my phone with your phone was out of see to get the one with all of your group plan a dumb way up with the to the shelter worship. ah
ah, bitter joe mansion, democrat from west virginia, continues to be the stumbling block for his party and the goal of pasadena, mass social spending bill, which as of now stands around $3.00 trillion dollars. now the latest demands include a child, a tax credit, which must include a farm work requirement and a family income gap around $60000.00. and it's a dramatically weekend one of president biden signature programs. and other issues of contention include the decision to link b at one point to a trillion dollar infrastructure bill, which center cursed and cinema a democrat from arizona says she will not look at the social spending plan until the infrastructure bill is actually passed by the house neither senators have endorsed biting social spending compromise either. as their mansion continues to
say, the democrats planned to achieve their plan to achieve 0 car electricity or what was called the president clean electricity performance program is the nonstarter. but well, democrats alternately cave and approved funds designated for the environment to go to coal and gas plants. well, it's got the 360 view from robber patello talk radio host and civil rights tourney, and ed martin and the publisher of a pro america report dot com. thanks for joining me. and. and robert things got to be with you robert. this is your party. so we're going to let you cry if you want to tell me how crucial is mentioned in cinema support to either bill i think was crucial for me because we've seen that there are 0 republicans who are willing to cross 40 lines to vote and favorite things like clean energy and so to the pre k education, a free 2 years of college, adding a visual vision and dental care to medicare, of those sorts of things. republicans in opposition to and therefore we have to go groveling to jo mansion in christian cinema. and let joe mansion who understands
the democrats pick up one senate seat in 2022. he becomes completely irrelevant till he's playing every car that he has right now to keep himself in the limelight and try to do the facto prime minister of the united states of america. but what we know is that the democratic base is not going to compromise everything that they ran on 2022 apiece, jo, mansion and i think i'm checking to see how does that are, because for one for republicans aren't crossing over. i don't think that's really ever happened even when republicans are in power. so when you're looking at what's going right on right now, and as, as robert just said, yeah, democrats are having to appeal to they're probably the most conservative their party. what does it say about right now, the democrats like in comments that they can actually achieve some of their goals without republicans, have they ever had to do that before in history? well, i'm not sure about history. i know the wheels are coming off. i mean, if you look right now they're, they're in danger of passing almost nothing. in fact, chuck schumer is so desperate to try to keep his left flank covered because he got
a reelection in a year and a half or less than a year and a half. he's what bring up the america votes act or whatever that was. it's going to fail miserably in a disaster, but look, every now and then there's a moment where the party in power with the president and the senate and the house tries to do something that would be terrible for the country. a few years ago was the republicans who were about to pass an amnesty bill and a republican jeff sessions stood up and said, no, we're not going to do that. he was able to block the republicans with a president with a house. i'm doing something dumb in this case, mansion and cinema are doing the right thing. no one that's honest, thinks that that $3.00 true is really about a small things. it's about huge things. it's transforming the economy and the country. so look closely and schumer can't get anything done at this point, and biden is often the white house. where's biden? if he supposed to be a great deal maker, he's the guy that should be making a deal. there's no deal be in mate. we're in the 3rd week of nothing happening. it's all going down in flames. thank goodness. but the question will be yes. today
to more about a house democrat house members quit. they're not going to run for reelection. he's a 3rd one in a week because they know the democrats are about to lose at the polling box in 2022 . well then again, we're talking about electrons. we're not talking about policy. and i know that frustrates all 3 of us because we, that we'd rather things actually been decided on based on the policies that were best not, was going to get these guys re elected to do what they're not doing or what they're doing on the health. but robert, do you really think both centers would be fighting as hard against their own parties if they were not from what is considered to be very purple, state and mansions expectations. this is why it keeps getting reelected in west virginia, which probably would go red if it was anybody else. i think democrats have to stop running scared with mentally those understand jo mansion from west virginia who is the primary industry of coal mining. so the idea of the be coal mining senator is going to vote for in favor of electric energy, electric cars, and environmental perception. i think it's, it's laughable at best. so what different quotes going to have to do is figure out
either a how do you peel offer a republican or how do you create an agenda that as it can get democrats relisted in 2022 and try to pick up a seat somewhere. so you can come back and i have to grovel the jo mansion. but i think the idea that you have millions and millions, 80000000 people vote for the agenda. and it gives held up by one of the smallest 4 states in the country. joe mansion because one senators against it, i think, is antithetical here than we believe were represented democracy. this will hold to represent both interesting 80000000 people and i know that they might have for job i am, but they actually vote for every talking point. this was a big part of it, but i don't know if you once again 80808020 rule is kind of we go for. but another point that's being mentioned a part of jo matches this expanded child tax credit. and ed id really believe that it would reduce child poverty by 40 percent, as democrats are projecting. that seems that magical, i don't think anybody b would be against child poverty and reducing it by 40 percent. but is this the solution that they've come up with?
well no, it's even more important to us, scotty, and it's really, i'm glad we're talking about it because most people aren't. the child tax credit is a direct payment. it's not, it's not tied to anything that's just a straight payment to families. this is an inside the same massive bill, 3.5 trillion. they would get rid of finally and permanently the, the welfare to work requirement, the requirement that something to get money is tied to some kind of behavior. bill clinton caved in to the right of his party and to the republicans and sign welfare to work. the left hated it because they want more direct payments. by the way, they're direct payments that came out of the coven relief bill. don't seem to have persuaded the voters that it's a good idea, but what mansion is actually fighting for and fighting against actually, i'm on, pardon me, smith, stating to block this idea and americans hate it. if you pull this, they hate freebies with no expectation that you're going to work. we go all the way back to reagan where he talked about welfare queens and he was referring to that and it was a huge success for him to be the leader on that issue in the mid seventies. so i look, if the democrats pass this thing,
it will be the worst thing for the country. but even worse for the democrats, the democrats have to hope it all dies. and as roberts said, they can run on something else like, i don't know, i'm not trump, but i wanna tweet me real quick robert. i want to give you the last question on this one. you know, do you think progress is that you mentioned how concerned with mansion and cinema that was holding the party basically. but you know, having to extreme left of the party. this progressive has also made a mess of this reconciliation bill that within the party, if they would have tried something without the extremes, that it could have actually gotten passed. because as of right now, there's no signs of this deal being made. or remember, this is a watered down version of the deal. the original proposal is 6 trillion dollars in double the size of it. and it's point, i don't think you're going to find any families have been giving the enhanced tax credit $300.00 week for child since the middle, the summer will be a better thing problem than most americans believe that. oh, bridging things, economic gaps, getting people off of that, we've streets, people out of starvation, bringing down child poverty are good things is why republicans are fighting tooth
and nail against it because of just what they never having problem corporate welfare. queens, they don't have a problem even most getting to 3 trillion dollars from nasa or just be those getting to $10000000000.00 from the federal government along those welfare. queens are right around their spaceship. that's fine. but god forbid a little child get the sandwiches going to destroy work from to will they should. well, i think it comes down to the fact that i, i have a problem. i have a problem with a corporate welfare. i'll join you on that one. i agree with you, i would love to run a running tab of all the donations that go to jeff bases and eli mosque. i would love to see both parties because both of them i think, should be held accountable. unfortunately, we, the people are the ones that don't like it, but i do like the both of you and i really am very, to join me today for this conversation. now, chinese hill about the 1900. these korean war is leading the box office globally beating out the latest james bond film in no time to die and marvels. shane is she? the legend of the 10 rings. and just 2 weeks since the battle of lake changing was
released, it is brought in over $633000000.00 and earnings. however, the content of the film which has been described outsiders as a chinese propaganda film centered on a story of chinese soldiers defeating american troops. actually raising the question as the chinese now have crafted this formula of making propaganda really appealing to their masses. to discuss you bring in a writer in filmmaker shawn down, sean, i figured you'd be a perfect person for this topic. you understand how propaganda works and multiple different types of pop culture. and i want to didn't, you know, start by saying, you know, politics influencing pop culture. nothing new. you pointed out all the time. however, how powerful do you think a movie can be as propaganda? for a country, because it's being sold as entertainment. not necessarily a documentary. well, certainly. i mean, who are we to cry fall here and to he was a chinese propaganda. hollywood does better than anyone. we did a documentary for i t a few years ago. hollywood dc showing the relationship of
politics and also f, b i n c i a and pentagon, paying for, for films, budgets 0 dark 30 being a great example of l made with a complicity of not written langley. ringback so when it comes to the nature of storytelling, you go argue that going back to the origin of film for $1.00 and $1.00 or 2 films. so many of those will be our again, this stick, but the same time. what is it is it isn't meant with to in the sense to rally the people to, to feel like it into the i think about their country. and that's what this is melting. be because it's reminding the chinese of their victory in the korean war against the american in the un troops, which is true in hundreds of thousands of chinese did for across the line into north korea. they did defend the north korean country government that exists this day as a result of chinese intervention. so it is an historically accurate rendition now
how it historically accurate. that's ultimately like every film, right? it's up to, you know, interpretation of the actual events. and i'm sure this is done with grandiosity and it's obviously meant to entertain. but you know, it's interesting in historical perspectives that we, as hollywood in america, we have been the main storytellers for so long in the world. now you're actually together, perspective, right? america was fighting against china and north in the korean war. we may have forgotten that, but now china has the money and the wherewithal to tell their own version of events . and yeah, it's, it's kind of like it's all coming. it all comes full circle now. imitation is the best form of flattery, i guess not necessarily in this case if it's pointing the truth, but you know, i have to ask you, sean, looking at the world events that we're dealing with right now. the timing of this. the fact this has anything to do with the growing tension between the united states and china was certainly it would be you would have to wonder when the film was made . it would have been made right around that time period when trump was pushing for
trader traded re months. and there was a lot of tension. if you recall, like he was really being tough on china in a way that may be the, the current administration has not been nearly so. ok. so i think there may be, out of that time period and the overall growth of the chinese economy through the 2010, i mean, becoming the 2nd biggest economy in the world of nationalism has been spiking patriotism. all these factors certainly would have played into the making of the spell. well, and i am sure that is something that i feel like every once again, who knows what, how it will be putting out the same time. john, always great to talk with you. we got okay, that is offered a shout in the meantime, i want you answer my question. i start off the show with what has nato di, the past decade, that has been good for global piece and their initial theme. and the initial reason for starting follow me on twitter at fatty and he's leave your answer. use the hash

aboriginal people here, i'm lawyer, pre di. we're out wanted system. now with the police were out with 2 states, i'm scared that more children are going to grow up in the country that think says no racism, but they're more likely to end up in the criminal justice system. then there are other fellow friends in daycare. it's been decade since the fall of spain's fascist regime, but old wounds still haven't tailed your and you can go into government that only shortened us because on the phone with me, freedom of good. when we said, oh, said, calling me on the bus at the station, you know that i'm interested, i think with thousands of newborn babies. what toned from their mothers and given away and forced adoption. they don't really bottom on are you just young ford fiesta that are my own grow up orders? i feel a little means it to this day mothers still search for grown children while adults
