9:04 pm
planning a land grab ring a bell. a similar warning came in the spring when russian troops gathered for snap training exercises. 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 a recklessly moving their military forces and infrastructure to the russian borders
9:05 pm
. so what is washes red line, us spy pained jetting towards russia's borders. passenger jets with hundreds of civilians on board, diverted because the nato re complain was too close and wouldn't respond to ground control. the actions by the u. s. air force created a 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. warship has now entered the block see when we can see it through binoculars or the crosshairs of a defense system system. a better one or multiple missile systems just across the it would it be possible to look at when they chose military infrastructure is located in just a short distance from other orders. in romania holland bush plants and we saw nathan systems had already been deployed and they can easily be converted into offensive missile systems and targets was it only takes

a matter of minutes to change the software distribution. now, instinct tells me that i per russian destroy, was spotted steaming and to new york 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, nato 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
9:07 pm
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, 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 rumor this earn a one will enrich current that you didn't call which go one aspect from the road to doing it. in the meantime, the us unfazed by it's 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 lincoln, has said it is unlikely gas will ever flow through it, repeating the claim of moscow's aggression against ukraine. daniel shaw,
9:08 pm
a professor at the city university of new york questions whether other countries would be allowed to behave like america does. this is part of the ramping up of economic, military and diplomatic pressure on russia, its nato in the us. they continue to encroach upon rushes borders. the absolute hypocrisy that's on display here with blinking 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 u. s. 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

9:10 pm
a suicide risk. and that all of these assurances are meaningless and vague as they 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 got ready to use to pointing to one of those reports in the year that the cia had prompted to kidnap during the saw and put it to kill him. speaking outside the high court here this morning, we've heard from stella morris the partner who is 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 have this decision on this day to have one of the foremost the foremost publisher journalist of the past, 50 years in a u. k. prison,
9:11 pm
accused of publishing the truth about or crimes about cia kill teams. 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 without doing 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?
9:12 pm
in the case of june, assange obviously listed on the full grounds of the royal court of justice, that they call it the royal court of injustice. a diplomatic a are in this po i just as i said, it was being announced a 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's how it got to this point in 2019 joint sans was forcefully removed by british police from ecuador embassy in london. after the country terminated to his 7 year asylum there, he had sought refuge after sexual assault allegations of sweden, which were later dropped. the british authorities arrested him on
9:13 pm
a separate charge of jumping bail. america wants the wiki league founder extradited on claims of conspiring to heck government computers and publishing classified material. meanwhile, sanchez fiance claimed he suffered a stroke during a hearing in october wiki leaks, editor in chief christian referencing, talked to us the following friday. rolling was actually in believable and so i run a good decision should be handed on the united nations human rights. the united states had all oppertunity in the medicine court to make those so called, oh, sure. and it's not. it's simply for the food that was in the medical court in january, the united states had given assurances that they would to treat the julian fairly. and he would get that treatment and be housed in an adequate jail. and could even sort of the sentence if he gets one in australia,
9:14 pm
all of these so called assurance and have been and been investigated by human rights organizations such as amnesty international and found that the, those us you are. and so some of the work, the 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 assaults. this is not a case that is being fought on the basis of the law. this is an absolutely tried to steal any legal process. this is a political case, and the julian arrest us we have said for many, many years is a political persecution. devastating storms have ripped through central and southern parts of the u. s. in what joe biden has described as possibly the worst tornado outbreak in the country. history of the state of kentucky has suffered the worst damage with the governor saying the death toll is currently at
9:15 pm
80 people and he is fearful. it could exceed $100.00 in the city of mayfield. more than 100 people were trapped inside a collapsed 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 a state of emergency ah thing. worst most devastating, most deadly tornado event. and kentucky's history. there's our hometown and it's just devastating. everybody's off their walls. we're shaking house collapsing, i guess you can see where the whole house is buckled all back sighted as houses all total devastation for all town. most of our historic buildings are now
9:16 pm
golf. with this is likely one of the largest tornado breaks in our history. entire towns were destroyed as some 30 powerful tornadoes, ravaged across thick us states. the worst affected can saki, and needs help support and relief 8. and so it turns to the governments, i'm 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
9:17 pm
hit in 2017, the 17 senators who voted against a bill to provide billions of dollars in relief. we're all republicans among them. kentucky's senator rand, pull once again thousands of suffering, but there's no time like the present for political punches. we should do what we can to help our kentucky neighbors. good be wisdom. they're 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 deserve the relief regardless of the furnished leadership. much of the dance don't use this against him and his party 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, deny isn't. see what happens. tornadoes in december read, but weather climate change was a factor is not clear at this point. still is the country reels and shock and
9:18 pm
concerns over climate change peak. it could also play into the democrats hands as a 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 the warming of the 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. american journalists are being threatened with massive fines if they work for what are perceived to be the wrong publications to contributors to a site called the strategic a culture foundation have received a certain warnings from the us treasury of this letter was sent to daniela's ar and michael virchow, who are both new york based to journalists, it says the s c, f is on a list of banned organizations accused of election meddling, and that us citizens who engage in transactions with the foundation are liable to
9:19 pm
fines of at least $300000.00. daniel was our shared, his experience with us it was a warning i regarding future articles. so essentially, if i write for s e f, i find gates and any kind of transaction, which i assume means a, an exchange of money i could be had with massive fines that were completely destroy my finances. so i was taken aback. i was, you know, concerned certainly, but actually had stopped writing for the yes. since the previous, you know, 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 enormous. and that of a, of an individual freelance journalist is always microscopic. that some of them are
9:20 pm
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 threats and make a 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 us electro process or so bertie as democracy. this is the start of a new us campaign against russian line behavior. the u. s. government claims the strategic culture foundation is in fact controlled by rushes for an intelligence agency vs v r. and that it is also linked to the russian foreign ministry. the foundation denies this and calls itself a research platform about your asian global affairs. but daniel lazar says 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,
9:21 pm
i 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 kind of stuff. and, and yet the, the u. s. government is trying to close down and therefore trying to stop information, which is usually at variance with 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, i can write that with the most outrageous things about george w bush or joe biden and not have to worry for a moment about a the search secret police crashing through my door. but now. 2 things may be
9:22 pm
changing slightly, and it doesn't the order. well. there was a shock in the russian capital on tuesday when a man opened a fire during a dispute over wearing masks, killing 2 employees in a public services office. here's how the deadly incident unfold. the the the solution. i knew alexei ross left, we worked together for about 4 months. why was the cloakroom attendant? he was a security. he was a kind hard working man,
9:23 pm
a good man would never any problems in him. and he always told you funny stories and found out earlier today that ambulance isn't police. that we thought it was a bomb threat with there have been a fire. we 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 the he pointed the gun at me, but apparently something jumped. he banded against his leg and the shot to the floor. i walked to when so the girl lined by reception and shouting, help me please. what's wrong with my legs? the news of which i was at my workplace and heard of far alarm as well as the sound similar to gunshots. then i saw a man running towards the exit of the building. at that moment i made
9:24 pm
a decision to detain him and i ran off to him. he resisted arrest. i saw that he was carrying a knife and a firearm. when i was detaining him, i made sure he couldn't use these weapons and neutralized him. are you in new poll shows a noticeable change in the political choices of hispanic voters in the u. s. and cause for concern for the democratic party, which has traditionally had overwhelming support from that ethnic ethnic group or just kill them 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 polls. latino, the more and more becoming swing votes. is there a swing vote that we're going to have to fight full? you see in this whole that there's a group of hispanic men who will, without a doubt, entice by trump and have become more republican, a yet this,
9:25 pm
i was there all the same once they get their position. and they forget about everybody, especially us, the immigrants, they ignore us in some aspects there, fulfilling their promises, but in others they've forgotten about us, 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 kit, the republican compare that to just a year previously. when over 60 percent of latinos voted for by it appears. the issue at hand is joe 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 the fund, and the police of destroy the oil and gas industry. and the chaos that our border is disastrous. for those of us who leave 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
9:26 pm
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 bite, and he's completely destroying the economy right 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 demographic are impressed with. so that's why i don't, i don't like, i don't, i don't think we could 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 quotes her answer someone know
9:27 pm
language with something that naturally, it's like how does it come with in reading let and that was like okay, pretty cool. i'm pretty sure i'm in that group. and then after, wow, like why do we make my oh, why, why, why are we adding extra words? i mean, i'm still part of it, but i'm still latino. a. i'm still considered 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. that's your weekly for this hour. i will be back in about 32 minutes with another look. see with us our traditional blue
