ah, turning off the tops, barouche temporarily shots an oil pipeline which runs from russia to poland, adding to the e. u on scheduled maintenance is the 2nd reason for the hold put comes at a time of height and tensions between mintz and brussels. the sharp divide emerges over poland tactics with france, sliding plans for a massive wolfy built on the border. we'll look at the top line being taken against people coming from by the roofs while migrant both so clearly crossing mediterranean. when every minute matters in england, people's lives have been put in danger, amid delays and delivering emergency help. we hear from a man whose mother passed away after an ambulance fail to arrive on time. potentially, you know, this death could be you should be saved if the ambulance arrived sienna and dr.
2:01 pm
attended as soon as possible. ah! not from oscar. thanks for joining us. an international this evening on daniel hawkins. wherever you are. welcome to the program. the bedroom has shut down a key oil pipeline, which runs from russia to poland and on to other e. u. countries means sites on scheduled maintenance, adding that the stoppage would last 3 days. it's led to claims from europe. the move is no coincidence considering the situation that's current unfolding on the countries border. my colleague, you know, neil heard more from ortiz franco. this is actually the number one intrigue, whether there are any links between the closure of the operations in this throws more friendship pipeline. what i want to make clear though is that
2:02 pm
we're talking about an oil pipeline and also earlier warnings by the, by russian president, alexander lucas angle, about the potential shut down of a gas pipeline. well technically there aren't because mens could is saying that's the reason for this is just that something needs to be fixed and this is something that's only gonna laugh for 3 days. more importantly, we're talking about completely different transit routes, completely different pipelines and different kind of commodities being supplied all in the one hand and gas on the other. so on paper it looks like this doesn't have anything to do with politics, but again, we do remember how last week, alexander lucas shan't go. his rhetoric was very aggressive. he pretty much said that if the leaders don't behave themselves, he is ready to cut off gas supplies from the europe,
2:03 pm
the amal pipeline. and this is something very important because we do remember that we're hot on the heels of an energy crisis in europe. that mostly had to do with gas, skyrocketing and gas prices, as something that we were seeing throughout september and october. and this was very serious. and it could be that mister lucas ankle could be sending a signal to europe that i'm ready to pull the strings. maybe do something with his wall pipeline and let the e leaders think at what may happen next. so is this a signal or that is this not, not a signal. we don't know, but this could be the way he's thinking at this point. an important point though, we perhaps should touch on the energy, so flies, belarus, transits through its territory, don't belong to minsk, has russia responded to developments? well, 1st of all, if we're talking about the dubois oil pipeline, which is used for all deliveries from the oil fields and central russia to
2:04 pm
countries such as poland, hungary, the czech republic, germany, the russian side for now is rather call because they're saying that if it's only for 3 days, that is not going to affect the total quantity of supplies in a month. so with that there. okay. but actually vladimir potent who often supports alexander lucas sango. and we know that borrows from russia are close allies when mister putin heard about this threat from the ball, russian president of a potential closures of the gas pipeline. he was rather critical about it. here's what exactly you said. we'll move to ensure theoretically, alexander lucas shank o can shut down the gas pipeline, has the president of a transit country. he can probably give an order to cut off our supplies to europe . it, although this would be a violation of our transit contract. i hope it doesn't come to this. if it happens,
2:05 pm
it will cause great damage to the european energy sector, and the one contribute to the development of our relations with bella, ru cindy. and so mr. potent remarks were rather calm and very diplomatic. i should say. this though, isn't, does something that we're supposed to expect from europe, because they're very aggressive when it comes to alexander lucas angle. they're aggressively reacting to anything. he says they are blaming him for waging a hybrid war are against the european union. so just wait till the european leaders say something about this latest decision to temporarily closed rouge bar or friendship. the oil pop on that we've just been talking about. but a ruse has condemned poland border crackdown, calling it violence against people on other countries, territory. irish border guards offense off the frontier. foreign more to cannon and tear gas to prevent migrants from breaking through. ah,
2:06 pm
italian france. so both questioning poland severe strategy for dealing with migrants trying to enter the e. barbarous. paris is refusing to find a new wall. warsaw wants to build along the frontier though the european council chief has given it his blessing. it's legally possible based on the truant legal framework, threw up a level 2 fighters interest structure history. but not just you frontier martin. i am in favor over your of which protects his borders, but not a europe which bristles with barbed wire or covers itself with walls on this contract. antiquity or what is happening in several places on the borders of the
2:07 pm
union is disconcerting. the gap between the great principles proclaimed and the neglect of the hunger and coal to which human beings are exposed at the borders of the union is surprising. cheapie. the punish borders. one of several immigration or spots last week alone, more than 600 refugees or after 3 shores of traveling from north africa. and i thought he shot at the wind sky explained their getting treated very differently to those attempting to cross via barrows. what a difference a route makes. in the last few days, hundreds of migrants crossing the mediterranean sea flimsy fishing boats found themselves rescued and brought to you repeat land. since the start of this year, more than $50000.00 migrants have used that c route reach italy that's an 85 percent increase compared to the same period last year and almost 500 percent more compared to 2 years ago by landing on europe's mediterranean coast. my
2:08 pm
grants find themselves greeted by agencies there to lend a helping hand fly just under 2000 kilometers to another e u country. and the reception couldn't be more different around 3000 migrants, desperately trying to survive in no man's land as winter sets in n g o z. and agencies can't even get full access while the past to freedom is blocked by t cast by water cannons by barbed wire. in a bid to shore up the eastern european borders. poland is going to construct a war war that would be partly paid for by the european union, and is designed to stop people from crossing into the block where they can then make claims for asylum. but as this war has been given, the green light, the use top court has just issued this ruling. the courts of justice finds that
2:09 pm
hunger has failed to fulfill its obligations by allowing an application for international protection to be rejected as inadmissible. on the grounds of the applicant arrived on his territory by a state in which that person was not exposed to persecution or risk of serious harm, or in which sufficient degree of protection is guaranteed. that judgment laws hungry in the court ice has restricted the right of asylum seekers yet doesn't to war? finance by the eve do exactly that. european union is full of contradictions. so massive immigration is right. this is that the good allison brussels has been telling all the member states that they should greet all these are the immigrants coming from the, from all over the world. they set quotation. they went to some political wars with hungary, with serena with poland because they would refuse a quotas at the region. union wants this message integration to the know of a sudden in one specific country. it is okay to build
2:10 pm
a wall and that's polish only because we're speaking about belarus and which is an ally of russia. so this shows this bit that double standards that the european union is imposing. this shows that the european union couldn't care less about immigration and that it's using these tremendous, depending on the situation around a $115000.00 in legal border crossings. have been made this year at the e use external board is the majority of still coming from the main routes that have been established now over many years. yet while countries like italy and hungry, which have been at the coal face of this problem for so many years now, a lot she left to deal with it on their own. poland enjoyed the immediate backing of brussels, which is rally duran with both moral political and now financial support. and while it's easy to say that this is picking one mistake against another, this is much, much more than that bases double standards at the highest level,
2:11 pm
se sum. and that level goes all the way to brussels. charlotte, even ski r t, paris in the us, the jury in the high profile and personally divisive try and i've called which in house and does it secondary deliberations. last year, the then 17 year old faithfully shot 2 people during a protest against police brutality on the east and the state of wisconsin. while the prosecution insists he is guilty of homicide, which in house argues yet that in self defense with moral the story from outside the court in kenosha, he is se john haughty, very start right around 9 am local time here at the producer county court house in kenosha wisconsin in the homicide trial in the homicide case of a 2 year old kyle written house, who was 17 at the time when he opened fire, shooting and killing 2 men and badly wounding a 3rd. during riding a protest here in kenosha in august of 2020, and really the crux of the case, what the jury has to weigh is whether or not written house acted in self defense.
2:12 pm
when he opened fire at these 3 men who his defense team, his lawyer say were attacking rittenhouse. the prosecution however incense that rittenhouse acted recklessly that he should have never been here in kenosha at that time. it was already a volatile situation with riots and protesting, standing from the police, shooting of a black man, a black resin in here of can osha that rittenhouse was here with a rifle. he added to the overall volatility and ultimately 2 people lost their lives and a 3rd was maimed for light. so the jury is weighing 5 felony counts against rittenhouse and $23.00 homicide reckless homicide towns and also to reckless endangerment and possession of a dangerous weapon. so basically these counts would be murder charges, and other states. and if convicted, he states is anywhere from 25 years to life in prison. now this is a case that's really divided many americans, those who are in support. i've written how saying that he was a hero,
2:13 pm
that he was here defending the community where his father lived with house linda, south about 70 miles south in the state of illinois. a came here during his protest . i who says to defend some of the businesses that are being ransacked that were being loaded some burned down by the rioters and protesters and also also to offer medical aid to some of the people. here, prosecutors content, however, and those who are against him that he should have never been here, that he was acting recklessly that he was acting as a visual anti. so this case is really divided many americans, both for and again, britain house and here at the court house today outside as we've seen throughout the proceedings, there's basically i'll step out of the way real quick so you can get a better luck and we're not blocked by a car, but there's basically people are smattering protesters anywhere from 2 to 3. does an mostly against written house saying that he should be found guilty. others that like i said, are in support of kyle written house. we haven't seen any,
2:14 pm
any serious escalation of violence. there's been some arguments. but when there is police react pretty quick, they step in pretty quickly. honestly, there's really more media at this point than there are any demonstrators or protesters, but back said as i step back into the shop, there is concerned at it for when a verse of verdict is handed down by the jury. that could stem more unrest in the city. so in order prepare for that or basically on stop any violence. the governor of wisconsin, tony evers has paul to duty. $500.00 national guard troops to remain on standby to be activated in the event that unrest or violence arrived here in the city. but for now, the city of can osha and wisconsin remains calm as we await a verdict. in this case, the shooting called wooden house is on trial full to place during the black lives matter. unrest in the us. some media commentators or adamant royce is central to the case despite the fact the man is short by rittenhouse were also white. a man he
2:15 pm
wanted, he wanted to do it because he was cool. a black kid that killed 2 people and injured another person. how would america feel about that? i think it would be a completely different feeling if you want to know why critical race there exists, the actual loss will be re that emphasizes that supposedly colorblind laws in america often still have racially discriminatory outcomes. they look no further than the trial of cal rittenhouse. this is white privilege on steroids. as far as politics are concerned, what i'm focused on as a trial lawyer observing this is what the potential political orientation of each of the jurors is going to be. meanwhile, but and how's his mother is accused joe barton, of defaming her son, that's in response to a tweet from her for rossier containing his image in which the ban presidential nominee condemned white supremacists, you, she was raised at a recent white house briefing. why did president biden suggest that kyle written house on trial in kenosha is
2:16 pm
a waste of process. so peter, at what i am not going to speak to right now is anything about an ongoing trial. we're waiting a verdict beyond that, i'm not gonna speak to any individuals or this case. the president has spoken to it already and his mom now coverage. now, his mom came out saying that the president veined her son claims. she claimed that when the president suggested her son weiss the premises, he was doing that to when both that would happen. i just have nothing more to speak to an ongoing case where the closing arguments were just me. go ahead. we discussed the situation with alan doug, schmidt's emeritus professor of laura hall would law school. he says that widens interference in the case has influenced the media narrative. you can't just call somebody a white supremacist without any evidence. that is both a matter of opinion, but it's also based on facts and if there's nothing in his background to support that he's a white supremacist. that would be defamation. so i think god, joe biden,
2:17 pm
the candidate made a serious mistake by intruding into the case and letting his opinion be heard whether year later, it still has an influence. it's probably an indirect influence on establishing the media narrative. if the sure on the other foot, if this were a black lives matter protester who had shot electrically in self defense, then the hard left and the racial left would be very much in favor of the defending. but here the heart left is very much against the defendant. it's a difficult case because there are really 2 trials. the prosecutor put rittenhouse on trial for being there for having a gun for coming to arrive. the defense defended him only against the charge of shooting and the defense warrants the case to focus on 3 to 4 minutes. the prosecution was the case can focus on hold for hours and even a whole day. and the judge hasn't really told the jury how to decide that case. so
2:18 pm
whichever way the verdict comes out, there will be disagreement. and there may be protests parents being treated like terrorists last the fear of being raised by us. republicans on the news that the f, b i and cooperation with got a terror, especially since apparently tracking threats direct to the teachers. caleb opened referrals. it appears the f b, i has allegedly activated criminal and counterterrorism divisions in response to threats against school board members. we have an email that was provided to republican lawmakers from an f b i leaker. and this email that was leaked seems to reference us attorney general merrick garland activating counterterrorism measures. this is what was in the mail, the counter terrorism and criminal divisions, created a threat tag. edu officials to track instances of related threats. we ask that your offices apply the threat tag to investigations and assessments of threats,
2:19 pm
specifically directed against the school board administrators, board members, teachers, and staff. many republicans fear that this could be used to target parents who are concerned and going to school board meetings concerned about the curriculum their children are being taught. now this e mail that was leaked is dated october 20th, which is the day before the us attorney general testified before congress that he had done no such thing. that justice department supports and defends the 1st amendment right of parents to complain as boast differently as they wish. i can't imagine any circumstance in which the patriot act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children. nor can i imagine a circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorism. now, in his testimony, attorney general merrick garland defended the memo. he said that he had received from the national school board association,
2:20 pm
a call concerning the safety school board members in response to some of the threats that were leveled against the school boards around the country by parents. and in response to that, this memo was created that was necessary to step in and protect the safety of school board members. however, we have many republicans who are stepping up and questioning the priorities of the f, b i and asking if they should really be treating parents who complain about school curriculum and other issues like potential terrorists in an agree, just abuse of power with the potential to unfairly track americans activities present biden's, department of justice is using f b i criminal and counter terrorism resources to target parents. when multiple us jim nest were sexually assaulted by their team doctor the f. b. i ignored them. when too many concerned parents spoke at school board meetings, the f b, i launched its entire con to terrorist division against them, record spike in murder,
2:21 pm
overdose deaths and illegal immigration. the biden administration does nothing but parents protesting at school board meetings. mary girl incense in the f, b i's counter terrorism division. the api i has denied that it is targeting parents . however, many look at this situation where across the country we have many parents going to school board meetings and raising concerns about issues regarding whether it's, you know, coded restrictions or a critical race theory, or some of the books that are available in the school. we have parents stepping up and raising these concerns and many see this moved by the f b i. if they indeed did raise counter terrorism and activate counter terrorism mechanisms. they see this is a very unnecessary escalation that could essentially intimidate other parents from stepping up with their concerns. when she 1st took the role as vice president, just 10 months ago, much of the us media was a wash with praise for kamala harris. i'm betting her as a great role model for being
2:22 pm
a 1st woman of color in the post fall to the present. it's slightly different picture. west wing aids are exasperated by what they see as entrenched as function and a lack of focus by the vice president harris and her staff. tom of harris's awkward mistakes, including some cringing answers on israel and the border crisis. stafford for the vice president, lori she is being sidelined and constrained politically and white house staffers paint a picture of dysfunction in her office. in addition to a media backlash, the vice president face is growing hospitality from americans. a recent poll put a public support at just 28 percent, the lowest approval rating for vice president, since 2007 support for president biden, meanwhile, has also slumped on with surgeon inflation. job losses and the supply chain. crisis . viruses she so exposed and told sienna and the media is simply focused on gossip, are not the accomplishments of the vice president, the erosion, centers, rasmussen,
2:23 pm
believe the democrats. so i want to wear kamala, losing trust among the people, everything she's had her hands on, or nothing really isn't her. it has been no real positive. when i ran that are made, if i'm a year old challenge and maybe she doesn't have the court, but it's a performance. her performance is just not. there was some background on my mother from a senior leader. and that has basically both houses on the same party that's taking on critical issues, probably the power to be within the democratic party or, or pull back and realizing she could not want an alert. and so i think they're trying to manipulate, you're trying to step aside to find a maneuver and so they may be given signal to the man that that's ok. we're not really opposed. i think the senior senior people realized that they got an issue on their hands 2022, but for 2020, for the next presidential election. they've got
2:24 pm
a realistic cause. i do not think mr. biting going to be run. said lives are being put at risk in england over increasing, waiting times for evidence is also having a knock on effects on the national emergency phone line, which is being inundated with extra calls from people asking where the ambulances are before to leave the average wasting time for cool to be on said last month was 56 seconds. that's compared to just 7 seconds the same time. last year, ortiz shot it was actually has more. well, grinned statistics and shock reports aren't exactly something the united kingdom is particularly alien to when it comes to the chest. the pandemic, i'm the government's handling of it. but these findings are definitely alarming. as according to a report, people are now dying in the back of ambulances of stock outside of hospital simply because they can't get in and up to a 160000 patients every single year. or coming to severe hom as
2:25 pm
a result of these delays. plus nearly $300000.00 more emergency calls a month the normal because of the ambulance shortages. we think that about 3 quarters of the extra phone calls that are coming in on 999. i'll repeat dialers trying to find out what's happened to the ambulance. they are having to wait for too long for so this is essentially a cycle of crisis because ultimately patients can't get admitted into hospital. they're waiting outside or even being treated in ambulances. but that means those ambulances can't get back on to the roads, to respond to further emergency service calls. in fact, many people are now waiting, including the most serious of categories, like suspected heart attacks or even strokes. and some of these categories are even waiting up to an hour or for an ambulance to arrive. and of course is, is having a detrimental impact on patient safety. the ambulance service is simply not providing the levels of service they should. patients are waiting too long and that
2:26 pm
is proven that much risk. well, this report doesn't exactly go into the amount of people that are dying, but does confirm that have been deaths in ambulance is waiting outside emergency departments or shortly after being admitted, following a long way to also consider is that other people as still in their homes are not able to be saved because paramedics, a stock, or the a, any un unable to answer these calls. now, all of this, all of the findings in this report is particularly reminiscent to just this time last year at the height of the pandemic. where people, again were being treated outside hospitals as the hospitals was simply running out of beds due to the demands of the cave at 19 pandemic. now back then and h, as bosses described at the services as being on its knees. and now that describing it as simply at breaking point, as the demand is increasing, as also as the cobra cases are back to skyrocket levels. and all of this really
2:27 pm
basically says, if you're sick in the united kingdom, it's a very bad time to be one tragic case that illustrates the situation is that of being a patel, the 6 year old mother of 2 died off to waiting nearly an hour and half an hour on the front ambulance. her son called for 17 times as a condition deteriorated. she died from suspected cardio correct. her son actually patel says you guys, health secretary must do everything possible to prevent similar situations in the future. i feel angry that, that he come on time and you know, i need to do something about law and grief that i've lost my mother. you know, my father passed away 3 years ago. so i own really had my mother left and the last 27 years. i've lived with my mother and knowing that potentially, you know, this debt, could it be, you know, she could being saved if the ambulance arrived sooner. dr. attended as soon as
2:28 pm
possible. the health secretary of the u. k. should, should reach out to me and, and see what he's going to do to, to prevent this happening in future, not for my sake before the people say, because the last thing i want to do here. so what else is passed away due to an ambulance arrive and in time we do have a system failure. you know, the ambulance service all the n h s as a whole, you know, he's failing not just me. it's fair to lot of people. there's a lot of current news affairs on this on the ambulance delays and you know, something needs to be done. there's a headlines this hour coming up next. it's going on the ground for you, you as a who can learn how to say safe online with all to document trees program. i'm hacked that you want us to get off an hour with
2:29 pm
when there are problems like the energy crisis. europe's illegal immigration on poland border or even when the wrong political party or politician winds there is a culprit, always waiting in the wings. and that's russia. scapegoating. russia is the excuse used by failing western leads with i'm as soon as any watching going underground. coming over the show,
