broadcasting live direct from our studio. most of this is our to international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us. no tensions over ukraine ran high this week with russia criticizing the west for fueling, the escalation and voice and concern at nato's actions in the region. moscow saying it could potentially lead to a large scale conflict. escalation happened after a ship blind to the ukrainian navy approach to russian waters without authorization . on thursday evening. they move that russia regarded as a threat to the navigational safety of other vessels in the area. you can denied all allegations and insisted the ship was an unarmed search and rescue vessels that never entered restricted waters or post any threat, and it did eventually change course. ukraine was the main topic of conversation between flattery, puttin and joe biden. on tuesday, the us president pointed out what he called the threatening nature of russian troop
8:02 pm
movements near the ukrainian border and said severe sanctions were being drawn up. moscow insists it can move its troops wherever it wants on its own territory. while saying it is nato that is making the dangerous move, cremeans spokesperson talk to r t about how nato's actions are being regarded in russia. which is rhetoric is coming from the u. s. and e leaders sounds pretty aggressive. we see plenty of fake news about russia allegedly planning an aggressive invasion at the same time, no one talks to kia, non warns kiev again, even thinking of a military intervention in the guns conflict with him on that issue. and you must always need need. so you're taking unexpectedly aggressive condition, they all say they don't accept any red line photo. second, they say that nato would do what everyone wants, that it will do it on whatever territory wong again in florida that all of this is a to, to russia. we do not like dining, we will do everything to insure our own interest. while ukraine and the west
8:03 pm
accused russia of arming the self proclaimed republics in eastern ukraine, the u. s. is openly sending arms to give. washington revealed the 30 javelin anti tank missile systems were delivered to ukraine in october, as part of a $60000000.00 military aid package and a further $200000000.00 are on the table as well. and with the ongoing military build up on russia's borders, the g 7 group of advanced economies has threatened russia with a severe response if it attacks ukraine. moscow, though, denies any plans of invasion and interests. it is nato that poses a threat to russia by expanding further east, closer to its borders. but the white house believes that only it has the right to draw the line. oh, of course, the diplomacy is out and read lines of that to be crossed when the big bad wolf is planning a land grab a snap training exercises,
8:04 pm
and again when military drills were conducted in crimea. and only recently, moscow was supposedly the mastermind of a qu, in key of remember the currency of no mean either because it didn't happen. in fact, none of the predictions came true, but this time apparently it's different. this time it's the real deal. and to feed the fair, they're even drawing up the kremlin battle plans the new year offensive. and for the umpteenth time this year, russia is forced to defend the presence of its own troops on its own land. russia is not a threat to any country. the deployment of russian troops on the national territory is our sovereign roy, and no one's business. it is nato, on its members, states recklessly moving their military forces and infrastructure to the russian borders. so what is washes red line, us spy pained jetting towards russia's borders. passenger jets with hundreds of
8:05 pm
civilians on board, diverted because the nato re complain was to close and wouldn't respond to ground control. the actions by the u. s. air force created the threat to civilization and the fact that the catastrophe was averted over the backseat doesn't mean that the u . s. and nato can go on the risk in people's lives with impunity. the latest american war ship sailing into waters bordering russia. what the shows was nature, you know, a u. s. warships has now entered this luxury and when we can see it through binoculars, will the crosshairs of ancestors excused him? a better one or multiple missile systems just across the fence. it looked at it with him, look at when they chose military infrastructure is located city, just a short distance from our borders. in romania, holland, bush planting, massage, defense systems have already been deployed and they can easily be converted into offensive missile systems. it targets us, it only takes a matter of minutes to change the software distribution. now, instinct tells me that upper russian destroy was spotted steaming and to new york
8:06 pm
harbor. it would be a flaming red line for washington. but believe it or not for us all, this is a pink line at best. the real issue is nato, or rather, nato's expansion and expanded it has from this humble state in 1990 to this empire in 2020. now back in the day, russia was promised, nater would grow not one inch eastward of berlin. well, that's berlin. so no, it's not an inch. it's over a 1000 kilometers. and now it's knocking out rushes door. ukraine joining nato and we've been talking about it for a long time is a red line for us. the continual drawing of keys into the military or bit of the alliance, the de facto start of natives, assimilation of the military infrastructure of this country. and the desire to turn it into a foothold for confrontation with russia could all cause severe negative consequences and destabilize the military and political situation in europe. but lucky for nato,
8:07 pm
it's got a gas out of jail free card because in politics, well promises are made to be broken. where is that? where is that written down? where is that from? was written down and under the from religious friends among the rush, good natured, think what you want us to acknowledge it. in the meantime, the us on phased by its terrible track record of predicting russian behavior is covering its bases and drawing up some economic sanctions. you know, just in case and now the ongoing frictions have placed, the recently completed north stream to pipeline under threat. it runs from russia to germany under the baltic sea and is awaiting its official launch. however, the u. s. top diplomat, anthony, blinking has said it is unlikely gas will ever flow through it, repeating the claim of moscow's aggression against ukraine. daniel shaw and professor at the city university of new york questions whether other countries would be allowed to behave like america us. this is part of the ramping up of
8:08 pm
economic, military and diplomatic pressure on russia. its nato, in the us to continue to encroach upon rushes borders. the absolute hypocrisy that's on display here with blinking and biden's threats to try to cripple the rushing economy. imagine if it was russia surrounding the united states, the way the nato in the us continually encroaches into the black sea into estonia into ukraine. so ukraine is the latest justification to continue this new cold war . this new global class struggle was really behind. this is fear in us ruling circles of a sovereign strong russia. a dark day for journalism is how jolena sanchez supporters reacted to the british high court ruling on friday that the wiki leeks founder can be extradited to the united states. washington one,
8:09 pm
it's appealed against a previous decision blocking a font from being sent to america to face trial on espionage charges. campaigners slammed the latest move which was handed down on what was the un human rights de we condemn today's u. k. high court decision to allow the expedition of julian songs to the u. s. which will prove historic for all the wrong reasons. we fully believe that julian assault just been targeted for his contributions to journalism. back in october, those a to day, harry, i was the united states try to appeal over numerous grounds, including the fact that it offered an unprecedented package of assurances, as i saw, would not be held under the maximum security the strictest, maximum security conditions in prison over there and that he isn't on well, is being, he's made out. well, judas sanchez have continued to say that he is indeed a suicide risk. and that all of these assurances are meaningless and vague as they
8:10 pm
put it. they said that the united states can reverse any decision at any point. class is also concerned about the trustworthiness of america's guarantees to pointing to one of those reports in the year that the cia i had talked to kidnap doing this on to kill him speaking outside the high court here this morning. we've heard from stella morris to partner who's incredibly disappointed and she's saying why and how is this happening for? how long can this go on today is international human rights day? what a shame, how cynical to, how this decision on this day to have one of the foremost the foremost publisher journalists of the past, 50 years in a u. k. prison, accused of publishing the truth about or crimes about cia killed teams.
8:11 pm
many people have been supporting her outside here. many, many protests is that also are similar questions there who is a glimmer of hope that you know, the british justice system might actually prevail for once. the british judiciary. this is on every level the u. s. campaign to get a is 10 years 10 years in the streets of london, public opinion and business side, a sound. but obviously the judge's decision is not on the side of public opinion. it's absolutely devastating. so she, this time of year to another christmas about, do you know that is children without their dad stay on to fight to free judy massage. that's what i say. we will prevail, eventually many people outside as a high court to say, where is the human rights? in the case of june, assange, obviously listed on the foreground of the royal court of justice,
8:12 pm
that they call it the royal court of injustice. a diplomatic now, on a, just as i did was being announced, i protest even through eggs at this side, directly behind me, which just goes to show the sentiment and feeling here on the streets of london. briefly here is how it got to this point. in 2019 julianna's aunt was forcefully removed by british police from ecuador embassy in london. after the country terminated his 7 year highlander, he had sought refuge after sexual assault allegations in sweden, which were later dropped. the british authorities arrested him on a separate charge of jumping bail. america wants the wiki leaks at founder,
8:13 pm
extradited on claims of conspiring to hack a government computers and publishing classified material. meanwhile, sanchez fiance claims he suffered a stroke during a hearing in october wiki, leach, editor in chief christian preference and talked to us following fridays really was actually on believable. and so i run a good decision should be a 100 on the united nations human rights. the united states had all opportunity in the madison court to make those so called assurances. it's not, it's simply pretty simple was lost in the madison court. in january, the united states had given assurances that the they would to treat the julian fairly and he would get that treatment and be housed in an adequate to jail and could even server the new sentence if he gets one in australia. all of these so called assurance and have been and been investigated by human rights organizations such as amnesty international and found that the us you are. and so some of the
8:14 pm
work that paper they're written on. they are simply not reliable. we are dealing here with a nation where individuals on the top level in langley, they're junior, the top level of the cia and in the white house contemplated, kidnapping were killing julian sons. this is not a case that is being fought on the basis of the more this is an absolutely try to steal any legal process. this is a political case and the julian arrest, as we have said, for many, many years is a political persecution. devastating storms have ripped through central and southern parts of the west in what joe biden has described as possibly the worst tornado outbreak in the country history. the state of kentucky has suffered the worse damage with the governor saying the death toll is currently at 80 people and he is fearful. it could be exceed 100 in the city of mayfield,
8:15 pm
more than 100 people were trapped inside a collapse factory building while emergency workers have managed to rescue about 40 of them. shelters have been set up with the help of the red cross and the governor has declared the state of emergency ah mm hm. worst most devastating, most badly tornado event in kentucky, history or home town and it's just devastating. everybody's off, their walls were shaking. house collapsing against the do you see where the whole house is buckled? the little back side of this house is all total devastation for all town. most of our historic buildings are now. gough,
8:16 pm
[000:00:00;00] with the largest tornado, operates in our history and higher towns were destroyed as some 30 powerful tornadoes, ravaged across thick us states the worst effected can. saki needs help support and relief aid. and so it turns to the government and fellow americans. but politics is politics, and it seems not even a monumental disaster, like this one can bridge america's political divide. and some believe it's a perfect opportunity to show that you reap what you sow. when hurricane harvey's hit in 2017, the 17th senators, who voted against
8:17 pm
a bill to provide billions of dollars in relief. well, all republicans among them, kentucky's sen, round pole. once again, thousands are suffering, but there is no time like the present for political punches. we should do all we can to help our kentucky neighbors. god be with them for hurting, but do not for one second. forget that rand pole has voted against helping most americans most times bear in need. we know, rand paul is a heartless hypocrite. the people in kentucky deserved a relief regardless of their buffoon, his leadership, much of the dams dont use this against him and his part in the future. it is a missed opportunity for some it's not even off limits to suggest that if you vote read, then you had it coming vote for climate change deniers and see what happens. tornadoes in december are red, but weather climate change was a factor is not clear at this point. still as the country reels in shock and concerns over climate change peak,
8:18 pm
it could also play into the democrats hands as they bid to push a $1.00 trillion dollar climate package through the senate. all i know is that the intensity of the weather across the board has some impacts as a consequence of a warming to a planet and the climate change. and so it seems something as devastating as this can only wet the appetite for those looking to score political points. feel to come in the program. and the weekly us government is threatening to impose hefty fines on journalists to write for a blacklisted publication. one of them chairs his story with us. join me every thursday on the alex simon show when i was speaking to guess in the world of politics, sport, business,
8:19 pm
i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm. oh is your media a reflection of reality? in a world transformed what will make you feel safer, high selection, whole community. are you going the right way or are you being led to somewhere? which direct? what is true was, is great. in the world corrupted, you need to descend, have join us in the depths or remain in the shallows.
8:20 pm
oh, well, come back. this is the weekly on our international. now a new poll shows a noticeable change in the political choices of hispanic voters in the west. a cause for concern for the democratic party, which has traditionally had overwhelming support from that ethnic group or cheese kellum up and comments. growing number of americans who identify themselves as hispanic, are being drawn to the republican party. this long time, democratic party block has been softening. according to the poles, latinos more and more becoming swing voters. they are a swing vote that we're going to have to fight full. you see in this whole, that was a group of hispanic men who will, without a doubt, entice by trump and have become will republican. yet i desire, while they're all the same, once they get their position them on the forget about everybody, especially us, the immigrants, they ignore us on the, in some aspects they're fulfilling their promises. but in others, they've forgotten about us,
8:21 pm
such as education or the pandemic. in the recent virginia governor's race, more than half of latino voters gave their vote to glen young. can the republican compare that to just a year previously? when over 60 percent of latinos voted for biden, it appears the issue at hand. is jo biden's performance more than 54 percent? don't approve of the job that he's doing. more and more are switching parties saying the democratic party no longer reflects their values. the ideology of defendant, the police of destroy the oil and gas industry and the chaos that our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in south texas after much consideration and prayer with my family, i feel that my fiscally conservative pro business and pro life values are no longer in step with a democratic party, up to date being hispanic, and also black eyes. i should be democrat, i'm going against their narrative, and i feel like right now, and everything is crumbling for the democrats biden is completely destroying the economy, right?
8:22 pm
now and people can feel it in their pockets. now there's plenty to be upset about across the united states these days, and latinos are certainly among those affected 12 major cities in the united states have record homicide rates this year. and the price of food and gasoline just keeps staying high. apparently the democratic party is now reaching out to latino voters calling them latin x, a gender neutral term. but apparently not all of this particular demographics are impressed. defense and offense links itself. that's why i don't, i don't like i don't, i don't think we should be changing words because like a new generation, whatever, you know, i feel like it's a bunch of white liberals that are just trying to coach or, or someone else language. but you know, something that's natural, it's like kind of like someone reading 1st for a lot and i was like okay, this is pretty cool. i'm pretty sure i'm in that group. and then after, wow,
8:23 pm
like why do we make money? why, why, why are we adding extra words? i mean, i'm so part of it. cool. but i'm still latino, right? i'm so consider latino, latino, it's a sharp wake up call for the democratic party who presumptuous. we assumed that latinos would vote for them as usual. and the democrats are now having to earn their votes. now, the problem is, with all these negatives around the democrats and their performance. some think these efforts may come to little to late. caleb martin, r t new york. american journalists are being threatened with massive fines if they work for what are perceived to be the wrong publications to contractors, contributors rather to a side called the strategic culture foundation have received stern warnings from the us treasury. this letter was sent to daniela's arm and michael virchow, who are both new york based journalists. it says the s c f is on
8:24 pm
a list of banned organizations accused of election meddling, and that us citizens who engage in transactions with the foundation are liable to fines of at least $300000.00. daniel lazar shared his experience with us. it was a warning i regarding future articles. so essentially, if i write for sci fi and gauge and any kind of transaction, which i assume means any, an exchange of money, i could be hit with massive fines that were completely destroy my finances. so i was taken aback, i was, you know, concerned certainly, but actually i stopped writing for se yes, since the previous, you know, of 4 or 5 months earlier. so i didn't feel personally threatened. but others who, who want to continue writing for the f works dreamily frightened fair. they have all stopped writing for the site because really there's just, it's, you know, it's impossible to, to battle the us treasury in this kind of case. the us treasury is power is, is,
8:25 pm
is enormous. and that of a, of an individual freelance journalist is microscopic. but some of them are so frightened, they're unwilling even to give interviews like this one. so you know, so this is what it's showing effect means they're, they're unwilling to write and they're unwilling even to talk about why they, why they're too afraid to write the threat makes up part of a targeted sanctions campaign announced by the treasury secretary back in april treasury will target russian leaders, officials intelligence services and their proxies that attempt to interfere in the west electro process or so bertie has democracy. this is the start of a new u. s. campaign against russia malign behavior. the u. s. government claims the strategic culture foundation is in fact, controlled by russia's foreign intelligence agency, the s t v r, and that it is also linked to the russian foreign ministry foundation denies this and calls itself a research platform about your asian global affairs. but daniel, as are says,
8:26 pm
a dangerous precedent has already been set. i think of the that the at the s c f, the foundation hosts honest journalism. even though out i don't, don't agree with much of it. this is, this is serious work by serious journalists and that as a supporter of a free speech in a free press, i believe that readers should have access to this. ready kind of stuff and, and yet the, the u. s. government is trying to close it down. and therefore, trying to stop information, which is usually at variance with the official us policy from reaching from reaching audiences, including audiences in the us, to stop journalists from writing for these kinds of websites as a new step. and i think that and i was surprised because because the united states, in fact has a very good track record on when it comes to a free press. i mean, in america, we can say anything we want. yeah,
8:27 pm
i can write the most outrageous things about george w bush or joe biden and not have to worry for a moment about the search secret police crashing through my door. but now. 2 things may be changing slightly, and it doesn't or go well. some other headlines making news this our multiple people are confirmed, killed and numerous. others are still missing after a massive gas explosion on the italian island. officially, the blast completely destroyed. buildings including homes, emergency services have already pulled out survivors from the rebel and are continuing rescue operations. thousands of australians have rallied in sydney and melbourne against the vaccine mandates and new pandemic laws, including those, introduced by victoria state premier. daniel andrew, demonstrators want anders to withdraw in order that requires residence to have had to cobra jobs, to enter, workplaces,
8:28 pm
and other venues. and almost all your note in new york's huge santa con event has returned for the 1st time since the pandemic with center class party goers enjoying top d j's and even an egg, not waterfall drinking content. the tradition is essentially an all day bar crawl with worse for wear crowns known to get a little chaotic and variety of times. they haven't, that's our news and the weekly right here on our international be back was another look in about 31 and a half minutes. stay with us. ah, look forward to talking to you all. that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given by human beings, except where such order is a conflict with the 1st law show your identification. we should be very careful about our personal intelligence at that point, obviously is to great trust,
8:29 pm
rather than fear a very job with artificial intelligence. real, somebody with a robot must protect its own existence with what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on offense. very dramatic development. only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time time to sit down and talk ah, many was full, the delta would be the sort of p i did i cool, you know,
8:30 pm
going to get a show any more transmissible than delta. and what's happened, you got something which is popped up with more than 30 changes in that spike protein that we're all interested. it's accumulated, all the mutations we've seen in different varies all in one bar. and that raises some very interesting issues about where did it come from in the 1st place. is it possible to get even more mutations? what's gonna happen in terms of disease severity and vaccine protection? so it is suggesting the know the virus is still got some way to go for the most. ah ah, wish judge has blocked the extradition of wicking leaks, founder julian assigned to the united states and before the judge ruled out against
