3:01 pm
revenue, or catching the news hour from today. hello and welcome. i'm union o'neill, and this is our team international. vladimir putin on ju biden, have concluded what was a 2 hour video called the white house has revealed some of the key talking points saying that the u. s. president threatened decisive economic measures if there's any military escalation in ukraine on the kremlin, just released it. summary of the talks seeing the russian president highlighted keith's destructive actions about risk destroying long running peace talks for eastern ukraine. vladimir putin also proposed lifting all u. s. russia restrictions on the work of embassies, unconscious pets are t. saskia. tiller earlier reported on the talks. now so far, the only official reaction we've had is from the white house and as expected. no
3:02 pm
major breakthroughs, no groundbreaking revelations, probably as anticipated. not a surprise given how causes dominated headlines over the last couple of weeks. ukraine is front on santa, in the white house statement with president biden reiterating his commitment to crane sovereignty and to returning to de escalation and diplomacy. uncles, this all follows claims by washington, the russia party invasion of some kind to the media only adding to their hysteria by constantly speculating about why russia is amassing troops at the border with ukraine. donald, despite moscow only a couple of hours ago, coming out and saying, we have seen no intention, a hostile intentions for our neighbors. and quite frankly, what we do with our own troops on our own land is our own. our business, washington's also commented that bulletin made clear that that would be decisive action that has no specific details what that would potentially potentially entail
3:03 pm
if any incursion were to happen. though i given that in recent days, both he and his secretary state antony blink and i have spoken wide you about economic sanctions. that's probably what they have in mind than you can option on the table that most recently read it's had was kicking russia out of the swift international payment system used by banks all over the world aside from ukraine, those strategic stability, cyber wolf, and regional issues such as rod were a partner or so touched upon, that's what the official word so far as we will of course, be waiting to hear what the kremlin post and compare those 2 interpretations of how the meeting went. as the international reaction. so far we've heard from the austrian foreign ministry, they praised the 2 for coming together in this difficult time. also heard from the french president and manju out mike crow, who i, i did that he hoped that to tuesday school would somehow so, and the tensions between russia and the west, specifically russia and nato,
3:04 pm
which we know has, or is moscow's quote red line specifically it's expansion and ukraine becoming a member state in terms of different reaction out there. just looking at some of the headlines it looks like as a bit of disappointment in joe biden, they were expecting him to be tough on vladimir putin instead die in those 1st meetings. i 1st minutes of the meetings and said they saw a friendly smile, a wave, and pretty will, was just greetings, mr. president. hello. unfortunately, i saw myself. we didn't get to see one of the g 20 o next time we may redo it in person. so for a few harsh critics out that, that was really all tantamount to treachery, certainly wasn't bite and living up to his promise to put all that pressure on vladimir putin. i asked for what the cool look like because really that's all we can talk about the moment until we got word from the russian side. we've been told that it was strictly one on one that even interpreters were indifferent. a separate
3:05 pm
rooms, but then we got to got a photograph of the white house situational situation, room in which we can clearly see the fight and was flanked by 4 officials, including the sect of state, or antony blinker. by contrast, the image of vladimir putin doesn't indeed seem to st just that he was by himself. and you might have caught in that video that he had a button on his table. probably not his only form of communication with the outside world, though were allegedly he did not make use of it at all in those 2 hours. so those are the things that have come out so far. like i said, nothing major, it seems to be a commitment to engage again and continue in gauging at the highest levels. also seems to be a commitment to dial down at the temperature moving forward to use diplomacy. run of course, a sort of a promise by the world's nucular, a superpowers to kind of keep tensions as minimal as possible. it might not sound like a lot, but you know, what, given how us russia tensions have in recent months, hit historic close. i think that most people would agree that that is the success.
3:06 pm
yes, actually speaking just before russia had released its summary, one of those lines by the way of putting asked is us counterparts biden for reliable and firm legal guarantees that nature will not expand further east. you can read more about on our website. the front page will be going through that would guess at perhaps later this are on throughout the night. here from moscow they staying in the russian capital. there has been a deadly shooting in the south east of the city. a gunman kill 2 people and injured for others, including a young child inside a public services center earlier and choose the nikki are and can tell us more. one has been seems of absolute chaos and panic on this relatively quiet street to the southeast of moscow. this afternoon, after a 45 year old man opened fire in the city service center right behind me, as you said, killing 2 people and injuring for others. now we believe that one of those killed
3:07 pm
today was an employee at the service center and it has been confirmed that one of those injured was a 10 year old girl. now the conditions of those 4 people who were injured today is said to be very serious. it's unclear at this point. what exactly led this man to open fire on these people here today. although it's been reported that there was perhaps an altercation or an arguments over the wearing of protective face mosques, after which he opened fire and then tried to flee the sea. now pituitary, there was an off duty police officer, am in the service center at the time he managed to chase off to him and restrain him until the police arrived and arrested the man and, and took him in for questioning. jamara boucher miss, i was at my workplace and had a far alarm as well as the sound similar to gunshots than i saw, a man running towards the exit of the building. at that moment, i made a decision to detain him and i ran off to him. he resisted arrest. i saw that he was carrying a knife and a farm. when i was detaining him,
3:08 pm
i made sure he couldn't use these weapons and neutralized him. then it was found that this man actually had not the knife, a gun, but also a knife on his person. and that man that off duty police officer could be in line for an award for that tremendous active bravery today. now the moscow mer answer gets beyond and he has of course, expect expressed his condolences to the families of the victims. they lost their lives day to day and also express the hope for a speedy recovery. for those 4 who were injured in this sad, this tragic turn of events that day we also spoke to a man who knew one of the people killed in the shooting solution. what if i knew, relax a wrestler? we worked together for about 4 months. i was a cloak room attendant, he was a security guard and he was a kind hard working man, a good man. there were never any problems with him. and he always told me funny stories. and i found out earlier today that there were ambulances and police had,
3:09 pm
we thought it was a bomb threat. well, there have been a fire, but you found out that there have been a shooting with dead and wounded. and among the dead, i saw the name of that man. i worked with court. i said, we'll continue to monitor the story and will bring you the significant updates as they come in. i'm not sure. i hope frances has warned the e u that it's in danger. of bringing about its own downfall if it doesn't tone, donna's desire to impose one way of thinking and even compared its methods to quote the nazi dictatorship. the head of the catholic church was referring to a european commission drug to make official communications more the word again, inclusive, including a suggestion that staff say holiday period instead of christmas. here's our tea. charlotte dubin ski hope frances essentially condemning the european commission in likening it to the nazi regime. he also offered
3:10 pm
a warning saying that brussels shouldn't be moving on a path towards this type of woke language. this is what the pontiff had to say in history. many, many dictatorships have tried to do this kind of thing. think of napoleon, think of the nazi dictatorship, the communist one. it is a fashion of aborted down secularism, distilled water. it is something that throughout history hasn't worked well that document was cancelled last week after a fire storm of criticism with politicians across the block describing it is lacking common sense. now they also said that the commission was trying to cancel christmas. why? well, one of the guidelines within that document said that people shouldn't say christmas can be stressful. and there was the idea of saying you shouldn't ask people for their christian name. now this idea of inclusive language is something that the commission president herself on de leon has in the past,
3:11 pm
backed and said she wants to move towards. but this document which contained many other examples like not greeting people as ladies and gentlemen, because that wasn't inclusive enough and saying you couldn't describe something as being man made because that would be sexist, was just as step too far. and as a result, the commission has had to make an embarrassing you tune and delete this document. now, poked francis also talked about the idea of a document like this essentially weakening democracy. he said when national values are being sacrificed and they see something that was meant to unify europe as instead what it's done is so even deeper divisions. and the pope himself warned that something like this could cause the fall of you itself. brussels must be careful not to take the path of ideological clone utilization, which could end up dividing countries and causing the european union to fail. well,
3:12 pm
although that document was canceled last week, what it does is it raises questions about the political set up of the commission itself. and i say that because the commission is supposed to dot the eyes cross the t's, make sure that any document that is published is exactly what it wants to be. so the doesn't to track the sort of criticism we've seen over this document. and as it would have verified that before publication, it really begs the question, is this the direction that the commission wants to move in a direction where we have a world without christmas? logical analysts, nicola markovich thinks the pope's intervention shows how far the e u elite has drifted from the views of citizens for many people to what kind of building you up after world war. they never thought of this. this is the europe. unfortunately, brussels, the super elite in europe today who are copying was coming out of the american
3:13 pm
campuses. this is relayed by mainstream media by major corporations, and they're trying to re engineer the society. this has nothing to do with tackling the sanitary situation with fighting against poverty, with helping countries integrate. this has nothing to do. this is social re engineering. this is quite scary. and this is coming from a top bottom, a momentum with again, the super elite, which is wanting to dictate to people how they're supposed to think what they are not to say again to just think about the document. the essence of the document. this is, this is frightening. this is the essence of the authoritarian is, and this is a serious of totalitarianism. tell people what they're supposed to think and say cilla had this, our a suspected member of a saudi hit squad, dumped, murdered. a dissident journalist has been arrested not story and more shortly.
3:14 pm
ah ah ah, that money printing is driving up the energy costs and is gonna force russia into the you. and for that to happen, nato and american military has gotta exit germany. i call it air 1st. you say,
3:15 pm
i'm crazy, but that's what i'm calling with . ah, quarter of an hour into the program. you're very welcome back. thousands of people desperate to flee the taliban in afghanistan. many of whom work for the british armed forces were left behind without any help from london. that's the claim from a former staffer up. the foreign office is blowing the whistle in a damning report. it's left officials scrambling to defend their a legit actions. it would just seem axiomatic to me that if the foreign secretary is going to be away, the permanent under secretary isn't going to be away. i shouldn't be more visible to all people who are working crushes at risk when people don't have reflected on
3:16 pm
this. if i have my time again, i would have come, come back, i've gotten it, you don't need to repeat it. i'm going to say it again. you know, i have reflect was 30 keslie and if i had my tone again, it would come but it sounds less credible every time you repeat, it sounds, prosecutors, while uncomfortable watching, but certainly uncomfortable for those top civil servants here in westman, the south. best facing an absolute grilling at the foreign affairs select committee this afternoon, of course follows his testimony from a now whistle blow in the foreign office. raphael marshall who was working on the desks during those incredibly dark times as cobble was falling to the taliban. now he said, up to a 120000 people were frantically emailing the foreign office here at westminster, begging and pleading for their assistance. and you've got to help us. you've got to save us from the taliban. now he's blaming it on a lack of stalls. work from home culture here in the united kingdom at the moment,
3:17 pm
but also he's blaming on the very fact that members of software away on holiday, the foreign office, most senior civil servant didn't return to the united kingdom some 11 days later. the problem with all of that though is that these senior civil servants were leaving junior members of staff to deal with this crisis dealing with issues that way about the skill set and also the amount of emails coming through just left many of those emails on red in the inbox i estimate between 75150000 people applied for evacuation. many of these emails were not read that we usually over 5000 unread emails in the inbox at any given moment, including many unread emails dating from early in august. these emails were desperate an urgent while another controversy show matter as the fact that cats and dogs were given priority over human beings indeed is allegedly at a highest level as well. the prime minister apparently used considerable capacity.
3:18 pm
i tried to wangle the situation to get pen fall things animal char, to the animals that he was looking off to back here to the united kingdom and arguably ahead of prioritizing a desperate people that were trying to flee the taliban. now course johnson has since denied all of that this afternoon, but the grilling isn't just at boris johnson. it's also out dominic rob then foreign secretary, her electrically took hours to respond to even the most simplest of questions. apparently, he didn't fully understand the situation in the regional tool, and according to this whistle blow up, it was the entire team that was woefully had a woeful lack of knowledge when it came to the situation of afghanistan. now despite all of these, damming allegations, morris johnson is still buying the same drum singing, the same mantra that the u. k. did an excellent evacuation job, the operation pitching 2 and a 15000 people out
3:19 pm
a couple in the way that we did over the summer was one of your outstanding military achievements. i think that the loan for foreign offers the roman free born from everybody involved in it. more fish officials. but they didn't. i'm actually on started for what we've really seen her to day a some pretty damning allegations. not just against dominic rob, not just against morris johnson, but now the government as a whole. this is a whopping 40 page document. this testimony that really goes into all sorts of allegations against the government. basically saying that the united kingdom let people down, but not only that, not only letting people down, but it cost people's lives. we have contacted the british foreign office about the whistleblowers claims and will bring you any response. french police have arrested a saudi nationals suspected of involvement in the murder of jamal cas shoji. the journalist was killed on dismembered inside the sodium embassy. and this done both
3:20 pm
3 years ago. r t scale up not been picks up the story. well, from what we understand, one of the suspected killers of jamal to shoji the saudi journalist has been arrested at an airport near paris france. now the individual is reported to have been a member of the royal guards of saudi arabia, and he is reported to have been directly involved in the killing of jamal, cuz shoji. now it's important to note this comes just days after the french president visited saudi arabia. met with ben solomon and they had conversations. so interesting development. now from what you will recall, it was back in 2018, 3 years ago jamal shoji went to the saudi consulate in istanbul, reportedly to pick up papers for his planned marriage. from there, he was killed at reportedly dismembered. at this point his remains have never been
3:21 pm
found. now initially, it was saudi arabia denied any involvement in his killing from there. we saw saudi arabia go as far as blaming it on a rogue elements within their security services. there were 8 people who were sentenced up to 20 years in jail for being involved in the killing. however, there have been a number of reports that indicate that the saudi crown prince and de facto ruler mohammed than solomon was involved. now, despite international condemnation of the killing, at this point there hasn't been any us response. there has been no penalty, really imposed on saudi arabia by the united states. so we'll wait to see what happens with this latest development with one of the suspected killers of august shoji being arrested in france. another story to bring a corolla reaction to this as well. china has slammed a u. s. diplomatic boycotts off. it's winter olympics next year, the full statement here at calling it an attempt to provoke and manipulate. they
3:22 pm
wouldn't go. us politicians keep hyping up a diplomatic boycott without even being invited to the games. this wishful thinking and pure grandstanding is aimed at political manipulation. it is a grave travesty of the spirit of the olympic charter, a blatant political provocation, and a serious affront to the 1400000000 chinese people don't to talk. the stand off comes amid tense relations with washington and beijing's political and economic competition affecting as we can see, ever more spears, us athletes will still compete. however, there won't be any american officials, the i o c say that respects biden's decision on stress. the importance of leaving up leaps out of politics. the white house for its part sides concerns about a legit human rights violations in china. as the by name ministration will not send
3:23 pm
any diplomatic or official representation to the beijing 2022 winter olympics and paralympic games given the peer scenes, ongoing, genocide and crimes against a humanity engine. john and other human rights abuses. the athletes and team usa have our full support will be behind them 100 percent, as we cheered them on from home, who will not be contributing to the fanfare of the games. or we got reaction from a pair of guests on the story. they both think that by the administration is trying to politicize the winter olympics. it's an unnecessary slide against paging it, it looks like a reactionary attempt by a week president. well, you know, it does signal that the, by the ministration wants to politicize the olympic, somewhat similar to what we saw between the us and the ussr during the cold war. now this will indicate the many by does not subscribe the life experience a peaceful, athletic competition. we should keep in mind, however, that it's not a total boycott as your lead and noted. american athletes can feel compete.
3:24 pm
furthermore, it's not as provocative as what we see from the u. s. with respect to ukraine against russia, or taiwan against mainland china, or how the u. s. stand or the proliferation of nuclear weapon to australia. the bigger question now is whether other countries will follow washington lead and in post, similar boycotts, and how china will respond. it's always unfortunate when you know the olympics is politicized. but i do think that the trend in american and china relations, despite the brief moment of, of call that seem to be expressed in the, in the video conference between general secretary, she and president biden, that that seems to have passed. and we're back to a more overtly hostile attitude. it's interesting, of course, that american athletes will still be competing. american corporations that sponsor the olympics and broadcast out on television,
3:25 pm
of course don't want to lose out on their revenues. so i think that there's a very interesting dichotomy here between this attitude on the part of the government and the broader position of the olympics. love is, are lot for this our, but our programs, they're just beginning. find out what's showing right off to the shortest, the brakes. mm. ah, ah. oh the wrong one. 0, just don't hold any world. yes, to shave out. disdain becomes the attitude and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground.
3:26 pm
ah, it's update on you being are you oh no, no, no. what they did in a valuable mm hm. mapping my middle, now i own my heat up my lap and i had a knuckle. my love bob again thought now, well, i'm up at a bit a well, i mean a relationship with sonia. it's not in that and is your media a reflection of reality in
3:27 pm
a world transformed what will make you feel safer? isolation for community. are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true was is great. in the world corrupted, you need to descend a join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. ah ah ah.
3:28 pm
hi max kaiser, this is the cash report. last a talk about stacy max. one thing you can learn from history is that the elite, when everything starts to go wrong, but they always do is blame the people. right? says 2016 we've seen. of course, the people be deemed deplorable. they are deplorable people who deserve all the stuff coming to them because of the co locked downs. for example. well, as kaiser report has been warning, inflation as roaring is no longer transitory. it's almost permanent right? well, us treasury secretary, yellen, consumer spending in the united states has been concentrated on goods, which has exacerbated supply chain issues significantly. so it's the
3:29 pm
consumers, the citizens, the residents of this country who are to blame for the inflation because they keep on buying things with all of their biden bucks and all of their asset price gains. because remember, house prices are up 20 percent year on year 2. years in a row, everybody's failing rich, and they're spending. right, well, we've been talking about this inflation story now for several years because it's a disaster waiting to happen. as, as early as i was recently, 67 months ago, the official policy from john allen and others was that the economy was suffering from deflation. and we said that was actually a very so fast way to look at it. that was a manipulation of words. the problem was insidious and incipient and growing inflationary pressures, as evidenced by the blows in an asset price. as we said, this was all basically lying on behalf of the federal government. then we entered
3:30 pm
into the transitory inflation phase that we're, we're exiting now, but this was very predictably coming after the lies about inflation, didn't work anymore. and the real inflation hit. now, or at another juncture, where they're saying that it's really now entering a secular inflationary period. a semi permanent and inflationary period, exactly. as we predicted for a very simple reason. when you print 40 or 50 percent of the nation's, my supply within the preceding 12 months, you get inflation. and i mean it's like 2 plus 2 equals 4. john, y'all and blaming consumers for buying stuff is the kind of a height of hypocrisy. and it's the height of cognitive dissonance and is the height of the american empire to be quite frank. i mean this is the n folks. john ellen is.
