awe thanks for joining us in the f. b. i combed through properties here andy, few new york on tuesday. they were all tied to a billionaire, russian, businessman, oleg, derick pasco. and while the f b i says there were searching it based on a court order, dera pasco isn't buying it, and he actually fired back with a harsh, feisty response. well, speaking of, i see we were interim fair and frank zack, who was at the right on tuesday, who shows us what the f. b. i actually walked away with once hailed as rushes. richest man, the aluminum tycoon, oleg dairy pasco, had some feisty words for the f. b. i. agents who rated his home in washington, d. c, as well as his town home in new york city, tuesday. dairy pasco, suggesting the raid was all centered around allegations that russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election to secure a win for donald trump. dairy pasco saying via his telegram,
watching everything that is happening in america, i cannot help but marvel at the utter stupidity of the american establishment who persist in spinning this story about the allegedly colossal roll of the russians. in the 2016 u. s. presidential election. jerry pasco was said to be tied to former campaign chairman, to trump paul man of fort who was convicted on fraud charges, but then pardoned by trump and his final month and office according to an f. b, i spokeswoman agents were conducting a quote, court authorized long foresman activity tuesday, but didn't provide any more details as to why the f b. i was there, jerry pasco, spokeswoman put out this statement during the raid the f. b. i is indeed currently conducting searches in the homes of oleg, jerry pasco, relatives. the searches are carried out on the basis of 2 court orders related to us sanctions. the houses in question are la,
located in new york and washington. oh, like jerry pasco, himself is not their owner. 53 year old jerry pasco was sanctioned back in 2018 by the trump administration. along with about 2 dozen other kremlin officials with close ties, the president vladimir putin following alleged russian meddling in that 2016 presidential election tuesdays rate is just another, sat back for dary pasco, who recently sued over those sanctions. a judge dismissed his lawsuit back in june, and a 2016 court filing dairy pasco said he had difficulty getting a visa to travel to the u. s, but was able to use his diplomatic passport to visit new york 10 different times since 2009 many m d c neighbourhood. however, se on some of those trips, he did visit the home and stay at the house. reviewing renovations. however, no word on the last time he visited the property, dairy pasco, again saying via his telegram, what mind blowing sums of putin's money? did you find yesterday in those abandoned houses?
did you grab and enjoy the jam that went bad in the pantry? or the vodka? i'm so sick of these jokers. f b i agent search the dc home for about 6 hours walking away with things of all sizes from small boxes, even all the way to towing his car. dary pasco continues to deny any wrong doing, saying the u. s. is trying to destroy his wealth reputation and his global assets. according to forbes, jerry pasco is currently worth $4900000000.00 for news years. hughes, i'm fair in france, act now over to the european union where germany place are warning that the country's border of poland is at risk of class. and this comes right, massive influx of migrants crossing over into the u, from navy belarus ortiz at pier oliver reports from berlin. the european union is placing mounting pressure on minsk over refugees looking to enter
the e. u via bella ruth. though the german foreign minister has been among a group of, of senior german politicians that have pulled absolutely no punches whatsoever and their comments. hi, co must. the foreign minister has accused alexander lucas shanker, our rights of running an illegal migrant transport network is in, on certain o'clock we in europe are being confronted with the fact that lucas suncoast using refugees is a tool to put pressure on the european nations of lucas suncoast nothing short of the head of a state wrong smuggling wrist armed with arthur shift in no bill in untrue belarus, state organized shortly. state supports in smuggling activities are taking place. the regime in belarus is now considerably expanded on the list of countries from where people come and shall without. as a result, that's a form of hybrid threats. when my grants are being used as a political weapon horse, they offer the interior minister of germany. here you just heard, there's also said that he wants to coordinate with his polish counterpart in order
to have joint border patrols a long, not polish belo, russia, board of the border, basically between deliveries and the european union. there has been a deal done between brussels and fox done in this particular, su is to make sure they know planes will be flying refugees from iraq into bella roofs to the roof. quite a few people had taken. now this band on flights is going to be in place at least until the end of the year. but while we're talking about deals, in particular, when it comes to refugee mines, go back to 20. 15 to the start of the migrant crisis, which saw over 1300000 people seek asylum inside the european union. a deal at that time withdrawn with turkey. turkey gold was the country that the vast majority of people who arrived inside the you traveled across the time. 1000000000 were
given toward the promised, at least, and certainly hundreds of millions given to turkey, trying to make sure that people either remain didn't. you're certainly didn't make or try to make that crossing. there's still a lot of reserve judgement when it comes to exactly how successful that deal was. and however, any sign of a deal being offered towards belo reese is non existent at the moment. in fact, the president, alexander lucas shanker, says that he's doing everything he can possibly fight illegal immigration, but says that only get in return from his european partners is political pressure and function. your stifling us information only. you were doing it methodically and collectively. you are trying to destroy our economy and expect us to spend hundreds of millions of dollars protecting your cheer, political interests, like before. you must be crazy to think we will support you if you want us to help . you have to take steps in that direction rather than try to stifle us. it's hopeless. well, despite it not being what anybody in brussels wants,
or certainly not what they want to talk about publicly, at least it does seem that one of the only real ways to get to the crux of this problem may be for the you to work directly with bell roofs. joining me out to discuss the refugee crisis in bel overs as well as around the world as professor danny shaw, senior research fellow, the council of hemispheric affairs. thank you so much for joining me, professor. thanks cody, it's refugee issue. it's nothing new, but it continues, especially in the modern day, and i have to ask, do you feel like countries these days are using refugees almost as political weapons? accusation coming from germany and poland against lucas shinkel in bella, rues bella. ruth has to contend with its own issues is sanctions from the u. k. in the u. s. against the bell russian, people that have been very cruel. and that was what we heard. lucretia goes,
said you want to stay for the sanction and walk us in wage hybrid wars. don't expect any type of cooperation on our behalf. well, and that's the thing, you know, there is more, i feel like sometimes there is more anger and i'm just talking about the present situation. obviously. what's going on, fella, ruth? but off what other countries, there's angers at countries who are trying to stop a legal poa and united states for from illegals, or those migrates from crossing to the borders. there's more than that than that. the anger at the cropped government causing people to actually want to leave. so why do you think that would be better for global pressure? we used to put that kind of pressure on croak leadership in government and caused those governments to change so that people might not want to leave their home countries and mass. yeah, i think there's a lot this friday, for example, today's the 10th anniversary of the murder of more market daffy and libya can they're in a anniversary of the overthrow of the area of leadership in the 1969 libyans
revolution. and what does that cause, that has caused millions and millions of people to slow through libya in search of a better life, where in europe, but what nato would the us do to libya, the richest country in africa before the nato bombing invasion and dismemberment. a day today, a country, lots in tribal, asian divided in concord. so at this catch word corruption, i think we have to redefine these hybrid wars, these ongoing wars against the iraqi, any palestinian venezuelan people in so many other examples. it's going to spark millions and millions of people to try to find a solution because they've been de feature right. then they're homeless. then you're looking and i have to group all of those countries together. i think each country deserves their own attention, is that each have their own problems. but sometimes those, what's happening, the refugees are coming from that country. they're trying to escape,
they're going to other countries. it's like a snowball, and there's not enough being done. i think actually is one thing just to put money into it or threatened, but those corrupt leaderships and it's not in every single situation you mentioned are still saying and power. so what is the best way to handle that so that people actually want to stay in the country? i doubt refugees want to leave their own home and if it was a good place for them to live in the 1st place, why are we not doing more to try to facilitate healthy countries? healthy environments rather than trying to motivate or giving motivation to politicians, to push people out. when you say we were talking about the us government, whether it's under the talking about all leaderships, i'm talking us government and talking about why it as we, as a global community not wanting to to foster good health relationship in these countries themselves. within that we, there's the 99.9 percent within that we, there's the 0.01 percent. and there are powerful stakeholders from the u. s. in
england and france and the neo colonizing countries who have a huge, huge interest in continuing to exploit plunder and re colonize africa, south america, the places where there's so much natural, well. so i think the people empowered despite their rhetoric really have no interest in solving this migration crisis, which is not a crisis of, of migrants or crisis of, quote unquote, illegals, i would never call any human being illegal. it's a crisis of neo colonialism in neoliberalism. a failed economic model that continues to be predatory versus the vast majority of humanity. and yet here in the united states for thing time and time again, that just continues to cause more problems and who's going to pay for it. and we're not the only country that is having to deal with that issue. thank you. once again for sharing your insight into in your right, this is probably a small amount that is causing harm for
a lot for the bigger picture. thanks for joining me, professor pastor shelves are continuing to decrease in product. the administration is saying it is because people have more money to purchase items under president biden's than economy. so does this make dollars and cents to you? well, we'll give you 3 things to view after the break. ah, that's been decades since the fall of spams fascist regime, but old wounds still have entailed with us because on the phone with nickel freedom, okay. give me a po, said calling me the parentheses. me notice that anxious, and they think often which with thousands of newborn babies were torn from their mothers and given away in fullest adoption. they don't really bother you just yet,
fiesta, bitter. my own robles, i feel even amended to this day. mothers still search for grown children, while adults look in hope for their birth parents. join me every thursday on the alex salmon. sure. and i'll be speaking the guess of the world of politics, sport, business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. ah, he died. i cried, and i just had a slot the whole time. i was there. no one really thought anything different. knew the salt. i just didn't feel good on the ways for the surgery. his lungs failed. 30 seconds when i killed him.
i had gotten stuck with so many needles that day in 2019 talk to started talking about a new wide spread disease that caused severe lung damage. there's a few points that were really to turn all of the patients were diagnosed with a lung injury associated with using electronic cigarettes or facing products. the he pulled this out. he really felt holy crap, his him die. oh no, he's to be better. it was, i wouldn't want my worst enemy to ever go through that smell of breath with
one week environment. pershing called for the port of los angeles to be a 247 operation. there is a record number of ships simply waiting off the ports of southern california arctic correspond natasha suite has more of the ongoing congestion. there is a huge backlog of shapes waiting off the coast of los angeles, and there is a record $100.00 ships waiting to unload. this is not grandfather's goods movement chain. it is however, many cases your grandfather's infrastructure that we're working with. there was a major congestion off the coast of southern california. officials say there are some 200000 ship containers floating on the water waiting. and now a senior official with a los angeles port says they're working to ramp up operations to move cargo. their facilities are witnessing record levels of container activity, amid plans for around the clock operations in the u. s. supply chain. today we have
some good news going to help speed up the delivery of goods all across america. last week, after meeting with top shipping and retail executives, president biden call for the port of los angeles to become a 24 hour 7 days a week operation. it's all part of an effort to relieve supply chain bottlenecks and moves. trying container ships that are driving price is higher for us consumers . the cost of shipping supplies, such as cardboard and plastic, have recently increased a whopping 300 percent. prices are jumping enlarge part because container ships are stranded up ports waiting to be unloaded. and then there's shortage of truck drivers that need to move those goods. plus gas prices are at a 7 you're high and still rising. all of this is understandably driving up inflation and other rising costs are affecting worker pay. and it's not helping biden's reputation among republicans who are slow to jump on his multi trillion dollar tax, economic climate and infrastructure agenda currently. and congress by administration has argued that higher inflation is only temporary if the supply chain issues have
persisted for months after the economy began to reopen and recover. i think we all understand that the whole se, supply chain in the united states, and in fact, globally, was creeping along before the pandemic. the pandemic laid bare with its, its increased volumes and with its different buying patterns. it laid bare system that really needs to be modified ports and los angeles and long lead california account for 40 percent of all shipping containers entering the you know, states with at least $45.00 more ships arriving on thursday. port traffic is only expected to get worse and worse, black friday. only 4 and a half weeks away. amazon isn't taking any chances. they've already had hundreds of ball containers delivered to the port of houston. and giant retailers like home depot and wal mart may seek out other port alternatives. reporting for news use use and sweets r t. joining now to discuss is my dynamic debo,
toby smith of transformative research and steve gail form official in the us trade representative office. thanks for joining me gentlemen. we've had this debate last week. we're going to continue it. and sadly, i think we're going to continue it even more because we, there's no end in sight toby it a week later. what is the main reason that is keeping the ships from getting into port unloaded and on the road to the stores? well, because i think you're missing the actual issue. the issue is, is that, but for the panoramic we have a 70 percent service economy. 30 percent product. when the pandemic hit that flipped all of a sudden no services, but everybody in my block i there fedex of amazon. everybody was getting delivered stuff and we're not set up for that. you can't push a button and get more shipped. they take about 3 years to build. you can't add more people because in parts of vietnam and china, the people who make the stuff were quarantine out. so all you have to really understand is this. the supply chain is only as strong as its weakest link. when we
took 3 or 4 legs out at the same time, we were done. okay, that makes it. but didn't saki had this to say, there are some realities about an economy turning back on and moving from a period where there was low demand, where there was not the production of goods. and even of um, a range of supplies, the american people are looking for that as it's turning back on and as demand has increased, as it did that there would be ups and downs. ok, that's sounds almost like what you said. but steve, do you buy that answer there? basically, you know, whatever big things is that the economy was booming, and people are just buying more today than they were during the pandemic. now, during the trump administration, the economy was booming. people were buying tons of stuff. we're getting back to where we were before the bind administration cripple the economy. so i do agree
with tobin the supply chains only as strong as its weakest late. unfortunately, the president and his secretary of transportation booted are the 2 biggest, weakest links that have destroyed a once thriving supply chain operation. and we're not dependent on getting our loaves of bread and milk from china. we have a lack of truckers because we're paying people to not work. we have a lack of food service people because we're paying people to work. we can fix those things and just opening to ports 247 isn't going to solve that. well, until then, you know, i obviously give it a little bit of politics involved in this, but you mentioned it yourself. could anything have been done to prevent or at least alleviate these effects that were saying, i mean, we knew there was going to be some sort of effect of a mandatory shut down for during the pandemic. what could we have done differently? prevent where we are today. well, you know, you guys live at the political level. i actually invest in stuff and when you invest some stuff, i don't care about the politics. the reality is that when we get off shored
products from the ninety's in the 2000 to china, and if we had havoc cetera, we came dependent on them. now, i could argue that that was the stupidest thing we ever did. and i could argue that this was the idea that we left them in the world trade council and allow them to sell, you know, pick their people who had worked for 5 dollars a day. but we did so you can't blame out on trump. you can't plan a lot on bite and that was back in the bush here is ok that many people are going to be political about it. but the 2nd part is, is that it's way too late. i mean, i don't care when we, when you switch from 70 percent services being bought to 40 percent products being bought in a 3 month period, you are dead. and god, it was never going to, no one could change that. anything binder trumpeted didn't better and prompt didn't do anything during the pandemic. so that's just a canard, a canard on that one. but that's the thing. i think people were still buying or just they had less options to buy from. it doesn't mean that they're buying with it
. why? unless they were buying the stuff well, how about my daughter? yeah, she said that i was buying more actually as is being delivered to my doorstep. i might not have been having to spend as much time looking for it, but the, there's another part of this is people are saying and it was an article in the washington post that actually said, this is actually purposely being done to lower the standards of living expectations for americans so that people can get used to kind of like what the mass people are not asking questions anymore as much about where in the mass. same eventually happened with the average person expectations for what they should and should not have here in the united states name to go around on, on what created a lot of this crisis and it goes back to previous administrations. but the last thing you want to do is have an administration like jen sack you in the president blaming the american people for expecting to see shells full at their grocery stores like they used to be expecting to see stuff they want to buy available like they used to be and having the,
the push the by the administration mark the american people by saying, look, you might not be able to get your jacket and 15 colors, but you'll be able to get the jacket maybe in time for crisis. yeah, so bottom line is blaming the american people is bad politics, it's bad economics and it's just bad. well, and that's one thing that i'm both of you don't do tell wednesday would love to talk, can do this conversation and has what we will at a later date. thanks for joining me. now. pay for going thank new name and a new brand as another accusation. of wrongdoing by the social media company has emerge this time having to do with exactly who they are hiring for the lesson on the details we invite on investigator us and has to bump. i've been swan boom. this is gonna been, this can be a quick, 2 minutes. so let's get to it. let's start with this plan to re brand. what does facebook look to do? yeah, so basically facebook is the damage brand. no surprise there. and so what they want to do is unveil probably within the next couple of days, in fact, unveil a brand new name. it's similar to what google did. you know, when they expanded vastly and bought up youtube and became
a maps into te android developer. all these different, you know, off shoots of their company, and so they re branded and became alphabet of the very top. and then google's just the search engine part of it. what they supposed to do was they were, were much more than a social media company. we also have whatsapp, we have instagram, we have oculus, we're going to get into, you know, working with ray ban. and so they want to create kind of a suite of different companies. and they wanna re brand at the top so that facebook just becomes a, one of the names, one of the brands that they hold. but i think there's a bigger reason for it's got in the reason for it is because facebook is such a damaged friend, horribly damaged and it's only getting worse. they continue to have scandal after scandal about the way that they treat other people about the way that they deal with their algorithms. the, the fact that they're right now there's a push to port government to take over the algorithms of facebook. so i think a lot of what they're doing is system minimize that brand and say we're much more than this one badly damaged company. where did this change their tax status and liability for all of their issues right now it won't change
a whole lot of that. because really it's just a name change that it will change it to some extent because it depends on where they place that that top company, right, where they essentially place it in terms of a tax haven. but i really think it has to do with money. it has much more to do with the fact that ultimately facebook is, is falling apart. i mean, right now you can look at it and say, it still has, you know, of a 1000000000 people who use a 2000000000 people who use. yeah, that's true. and in some parts of the world, facebook likes to say facebook is the internet think that's true as well. but if you look at the, the trends for it, the demographics for facebook is dying and it's dying of quick death, not a slow death. and i think in a very short amount of time it would become obsolete anyway. so why not move away from? i get it. as i said, a damaged brand. well, i know looking at what's happening in the past to places like my space, i think they're saying how do we keep from becoming that type of dead social media . but at the same time, face that's had to pay a fine over 14000000 to the u. s. government for who they were choosing to hire. what did they now? yeah, i mean,
essentially facebook has been hiring people and going through this process of not being transparent once again. i think it's a lack of transparency in every single thing that they do. and so they're facing fines again, but remember, fines are nothing new for facebook. and the reality is for a company like facebook, they are without question working very hard to establish within their bottom line. the cost of doing business is part of that is paying find, break, the rules, pay fines. don't do what you're supposed to do. pay a fine, get in trouble with the you pay a fine, get in trouble with the u. s. government pay a fine. it doesn't really matter because the fines don't do anything to deter behavior. the funds don't change the fact that facebook is doing what it's doing. instead, the fines are merely so the government feels like it's doing something and facebook is to continue on business as usual. and they are more from the profit than they do the problem. thank you so much. been for joining us on this and that is all for today show in the meantime found me on twitter at scottie and he's used cash i in
the age. and for this, i'm more delicate for that to the app for apple or android device. thanks for watching lou. with the choice of the point, but mostly with a fin. daniels trulia with the basilica soil with them up in a month or because more used to live streaming and just needed to ask you about it because i just food say the game and then you would you that is images moves up was good for supposedly good have my good some i would say again to spend visitors in which is pretty weak. i'm on my side with your hope was out of the to get the vote for idea of your own plan in some way up. all of the fellow with the to the show push up with
the poor in america have gone porn and they've been vastly more numerous. and the billing our class have gotten more 1000000000 area to a great extent. but the government reports any aggregates. so they always take a foreign billionaire and they put them together. they say to put those 2 together, we don't see any inflation. well, this worked for about 20 years and people were fooled by this, and anyone who complained was considered to be anti american. well, now, because of the mis allocation of breast for so long and the ricochet and the boomerang, a verse coming back into the system, we now have catastrophic system failure. when i see black america, i see part of my. so when i was growing, you know,
black america spoke to me with white australia did not have those who say black lash matter is a movement, we are importing from america. no, nothing of who we are. i lived in a world where white lives mattered. and i was not why like mission? and i wasn't known from black america. i learned how to speak back to why this, aboriginal people of iraq law every day. we are out loaded system. now with the police, were at war 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 they're all the fellow friends in day care.
he's in patience in england are reportedly having to wait up to 50 hours for a bed in accident and emergency wards. that's as the pandemic puts fresh pressure on hospitals every step, the way that mismanaged the crisis. aside from the vaccine roll, i read personally of any faith in the car in dublin, german police war, the country's labor border with poland is at risk of collapse amid rising flows of migrants crossing into the you from belarus. brussels is not moving to tackle the influx though, still relying on sanctions and refusing to even talk to minutes and facebook has to fork out millions of dollars in a discrimination case after giving preference to hiring foreigners over americans.
