european parliament passes a non binding resolution seeking to been police use of facial recognition software and public places. emmy peas have failed it as a major victory august's debate. the issue is good news for you in criminals. and services will be abused like crazy. there's a great saying and law enforcement, and when you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail. ah, oh, thanks for joining us. this is anti international. we begin in afghanistan, where dozens of people have reportedly died in an explosion that a sheer mosque in the country's northern city of couldn't us. you may find these images disturbing. the last happened during friday prayers with the pats congregation in size. dozens of people are reported to have died. many more have
4:02 pm
been injured. the suicide bomber was sent to be behind the attack. the taliban is blame. the ice is cato risk group. it's the same group that carried out the cobble airport blast in august, which resulted in schools of death. this latest incident follows a deadly explosion on sunday. at another mosque in the country's capital. and it all comes 2 months after the taliban swept back to power, filling the void, left by the us, led withdraw. local journalist visited the site of the blast and sent this report. today at 1 pm this afternoon during prayers here and i. e, she, i mosque, and couldn't duz at bomb exploded, and i witness to say least 100 people were killed. the explosion was so powerful, according to some officials, the new taliban government had warned attacks like this one were possible. earlier taliban security personnel visited this place and they gave the opinion that it might be a suicide blast. after examining some evidence, we've seen such a blast in the past hitting mosques and killing worshippers. some states were
4:03 pm
targeting chia and the era. there were targeting chia in syria, they were targeting chia everywhere in the middle east. so i wouldn't be surprised that this. this is, as i said, you know, this is actually the work of that them b because the consider shia. is there any, is there another good believer over slam? so this is, this is the execute. but i mean, the major aim is to these that belies afghanistan, to actually be stabilized by taliban rule in afghanistan. so this is, this is the beginning, and i wouldn't be surprised actually, more of the big li at that slide. this will take place. and a few weeks a month, sir, ahead tivicay and cindy was congress saw going all out with calls for a crank down on facebook following claims of a company whistleblower. but in downtown san francisco, get as close ties to the party,
4:04 pm
something she didn't mention while demanding action against the now former employer . facebook's products harm children, stoked division and week in our democracy. the companies leadership knows how to make facebook and instagram saver a won't make the necessary changes because they have put their astronomical prophets afore people. congressional action is needed. well, that's on untangling francis hug, and he's being represented by a co founder whistle blow a john tie. he served in the obama ministration. the other co founder of the organization which helps whistle blows with the lowest phase is mcg said he was a legal rep for alexander vin men. a white house staffer who testified in donald trump's 1st impeachment, charl like blumenthal and into chief of the grays on highlighted other alleged links and says political affiliation shouldn't come as a shock. her testimony dovetails very closely with the democrat censorship agenda. their plan or their desire to heavily sensor social media francis,
4:05 pm
how again was pushing that agenda. it's true that bryson jill at the strategic communications firm that is reportedly advising francis halligan, where, and which was founded by former obama aid bill burton does it enjoy this relationship with her? then we also have to consider her relationship, a possible relationship with abide and white house. let me, whose press secretary, gen saki, i actually used to be employed as a senior advisor by bryce and july wanting. what's clear here is that democratic operatives, we're not picking out if these reports are true, are providing that p r advice and promotion to francis how going a previously unknown figure, who was instantly verified by twitter, the day of her carefully coordinated and crafted testimony. so she's not as a, an actual whistleblower. she is a political operative advancing
4:06 pm
a cohesive agenda. was more is the most. francis argon is a regular donor to democrat affiliated organizations, which help party candidates get elected. legal media analysts lie. nolan, max blumenthal again, gave us then take on the facebook allegations and also the dangers of censorship. she just wants more government intervention. so i think the impact we're going to see going forward is more censorship, more intervention from the intelligence services. and the reorientation of these social media sites to target official u. s. enemies per her recommendation. i think of, you know, it could, it can benefit multiple causes, you could see it benefiting the religious. right. that doesn't like the kind of semi pornographic content on instagram and the way it degrades women of feminist could get behind it. but behind it all as a much more insidious agenda that how gin outlines she has explicitly called for
4:07 pm
bass, beefing up facebook counter espionage team to take on official enemies. she named me and mar ethiopia, which is a new target of u. s. empire as well as iran and china. she did not refer to facebook working with any u. s. allies to carry out malicious activities. this is an extension of the narrative we've been hearing since the russia gate saga began. the real issue, the gravamen, the, the $64000.00 question is one of our people in coating. a former president of the united states who are excluded. an expert gated bowdlerized from any kind of public conversation. because of who he is. that's the issue. i may ask you some, one of you were on your phone on your mo bile and you said something politically piquant and all the sudden your phone went dead because your carrier says car, we don't like that. that's a hate speech. and you say you're the phone company,
4:08 pm
you don't, you don't monitor what i say. well that's what we have to look at these companies as utilities, they will shut you down merely because you're oh pining and expressing in a an opinion. that's what they never talked about. that's the reason that's what i wanted to hear. that was never addressed in this big whistle blowing, expose a cash, blah blah blah, blah blah. as gretta would say, calls are growing in america to slant new sanctions on russia over the nord stream to pipeline in lights of europe's energy. crisis comes days after vladimir putin pledge to ramp up. natural gas applies to europe as prices had hit record highs. artist on caught, it took union o'neill through the details. they're basically being accused of trying to artificially keep the price of natural gas as high as possible. but that
4:09 pm
actually announcement by the russian president vladimir putin to boost to europe's natural gas supplies, caused a price decrease of 20 percent right after that, amid this energy crisis. and just 2 days after that, we heard from us congressman michael mccall, who said that the u. s. should resume sanctions against russia in connection to the north stream to pipeline. and why? he says that russia's somehow weapon ising, it president biden, and chancellor merkel committed to taking action. should russia attempt to use energy as a weapon? yet both of tend to blind eye to the putin regimes, deliberate efforts to pressure europe into accelerating the russian nodes stream to pipeline certification process by manipulating europe's gas markets and leveraging a severe energy crisis on the continent. i'm a call says anglo merkel is turning a blind eye to some apparent malign, influenced by russia, but angle a merkel herself has said that russia fulfills all of its obligations in these contracts that are voluntarily made between russia and the european union. the fog,
4:10 pm
it is a gift. this, if you ask me whether there have been orders that russia has taken and then fail to fulfill as it stands now, that is not the case. that is, there are no orders that frush has said, no, we will not deliver those to you and we're not pumping gas through the ukrainian pipeline. rather russia can only fulfill orders that have been contract it out. so the question is really, isn't being ordered. the international gas union also praised russia as the power that can bring energy security to europe, and that the north stream to pipeline would actually play a crucial role in that. so it doesn't exactly seem like the reasoning behind mccall statements to resume sanctions against russia has a leg to stand on. and yet the allegations from the u. s. keep coming. how is moscow responded? we heard from russia's foreign minister survey leverage. he said, basically the u. s is trying to pit russia's european partner is against moscow. let's take a listen to what he said said your list of 30 for them will go to. the us openly say that cooperation with russia is contrary to europe's energy security interests
4:11 pm
that want to directly embroil is in this area and reduce our independence. now it's also important to note that russian president vladimir putin even urged to russia state gas company gas prompt to continue pumping fuel through crane even once north stream 2 is fully operational. and that move would show europe that russia wants to act in good faith that they're ready to fulfill their contractual obligations. even though if they made this move entirely to pumping gas to the north stream to pipeline, this would save the company, billions of dollars market which occur girl, emily sanctions against no stream to isn't top of europe's list of priorities. the pipeline has been completed and it's, it's to the situation now is about approval on the a you is in a difficult situation when the pressure is going to be maybe not immediately, but the pressure is going to be substantially get this over the line. if with 2 months from now, when we're in the midst of a cold winter,
4:12 pm
then pressure is going to ramp up. and i don't think sanctions is going to ultimately get in the way that the end of the day. your p is always going to choose to keep the lights on over. 2 2 over move in search of an ideal for the storage levels are much lower than they typically are this time of year and they don't have the capacity to may corp last grounds. we know we've obviously had a cold winter last year, which is why these levels are low. we know that if we have another cold winter this year, that these levels are going to be far lower once more. and we're also at a point when demand is higher because of the reopening that we have seen around the world. so i think europe has a massive problem and they are in a position now where they are heavily reliant on any extra supplies that can come from russia. it'd be lawmakers are pushing for a ban on facial recognition systems used by police. you parliament passed
4:13 pm
a non binding resolution against biometric surveillance and a piece of compared it to cold war snooping. that's an important step in fighting against mass surveillance. the central and eastern europeans used to live under the eye of the big brother. and we don't want to come back there as alicia calls for ban on funding or deploying programs that could result in indiscriminate, massive valence. the document also emphasizes the importance of human supervision in any final decision making and urges authorities to be more transparent by using open source software. so the 1st name against excessive surveillance in 2019 san francisco was the 1st city in america to enact a complete ban on biometric surveillance, other merican cities and followed suit. we discuss the pros and cons of the facial recognition system with terrorism expert david low. and for me use police officer. dominic is a there's a great saying and law enforcement that when you're a hammer,
4:14 pm
everything looks like a nail. and all this does, it may have the great grand scheme idea of you're going after some very serious offences like child sex trafficking are missing persons or terrorist activity. but i don't care who says what it will always be used down to your lowest common denominator, which is your citizen, and it will be abused like crazy. you're then actively putting a tool in the police is hands to look for crimes proactively in the wrong way. i think this is just, this is a door that's going to be open for some very abuse of authority. i don't think it's a good idea. and if you could put police in this mindset of that everybody is a criminal. good news you are being criminals. and terrorists, a terrorist threat both in europe. i know north america since we'll have enough dummy. so if you did look, i mean i'm talking about dealing with serious organized crime tomorrow, trafficking, i'm not so much of dealing with cs trafficking, those type of fences in terrorism. and i think the point that was made,
4:15 pm
but you know, it's only allowing like counterterrorism in one, you know, the agency, those things you wouldn't giving to have any police force. it was like when we were in the european union, michigan information system, which was a database that wasn't available to serve the police force in the u. k. there was only to certain options and the pounds i just happens and all of them in the united states were we abuse, we just abuse. so if it was, if it was utilized and executed for what it was written up for a 100 percent of the oversight was proper on it. and i think it would be a great tool. i think it, but we just, we always take something that's, that's meant to be some weight and, and we just, we water it down and we abuse that it's about giving who has access or was the day to store and also destroying data. hancock gladly the crash intelligence on it's on, it's making sure those safeguards in place and that's why i said, you need judicial scrutiny. what's to make it to say that it doesn't go all the way down to again, the lowest common denominator, which is the citizen and a detective,
4:16 pm
or a st. cops shriek up as a bad day and he wants to go through all the backlog of your activity for last 6 months and charge you for a crime that you committed 34 months ago. pulling on a collision course with brussels after walsall, stop court will some e u. laws clash with the country's constitution. and the timing makes the issue more acute as poland is seeking billions of euros in e, you recovery funds to oliver reports. there are shots fired in that confrontation between warsaw and brussels and the constitutional tribunal. poland talk court is basically said that the polish constitution has precedence over you law in the country. the primacy of constitutional law over other sources of law, results directly from the constitution of the republic of poland. this has been clearly confirmed by the constitutional tribunal. it's very important to point out
4:17 pm
the polish prime minister, materially more of italy says this isn't a sign that poland is about to try and leave the european union. in fact, he says his country has no intention of doing just that, but we are hearing again things that sound like breaks at room briggs at a cost to do. it hasn't gone anywhere yet. well, now we're hearing about politics. it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but it is what it is. in fact, here in germany, the press is full. this morning of talk about this being a legal polk said that poland has essentially, by making this ruling the tried to pull itself out of the legal frameworks of the european union and france deeply unhappy as well. we've heard air condemnation from paris. the european commission has said that they have serious concerns about this ruling from the courts, while other e. u officials are clearly far from happy at this move. the verdict in poland cannot remain without consequences. the primacy of you law must be undisputed violating it means challenging. one of the founding principles of our union,
4:18 pm
you states must not stand by idly. when the rule of law continues to be dismantled by the polish government. neither can the european commission or money can't finance governments which mock and the gates are jointly agreed rules or this. it could be a go a different way though, cuz this because these rulings from the court only become law when they're published by the polish government. now, what could happen is the could take this ruling from the constitutional tribunal and go, we'll pop that in a drawer for now, and maybe we'll look at it a little later because what you have at the moment is a situation whereby poland isn't getting tens of billions from the european union in covey recovery money. poland can look at other member states. you've already received their cash. you're already spending their cash. and wondering well what, how we going to make sure we get ours? so we may well see this ruling from the court used as some type of bargaining chip to try and find a rapprochement between warsaw and brussels. but it certainly doesn't look good at
4:19 pm
the moment in some of the concern that's been shown from the european side. certainly justified, as poland says, essentially the rules in its country supercede, those of the european union followed the hamburg institute of events, 30 pallor. bernardine believes at brussels from warsaw. don't start talking. poland could follow the u. k. out of the e u constitutional. not a single state is always super, sees that the, you appear laws because europe was un, unable to give or to solve the constitution over 50 years. we owe and the mass respect to the state constitution and also the european union should find their way . but i would say, 1st of all, on the illegal term by dialogue, by setting up an committees of legal experts on the error kiosks. if dears does not happen, i will say, i'm afraid we shall to think about a polish for
4:20 pm
a friend among the same way. and that the friend the was that was the done in the britain in january of this year. because otherwise, we're all just in a deadlock, we are, we are just unable to move for wars. and the cries is so will, to my understanding the only increase over the next month, because we have seen so many quizes now. but many, the and so many intentions between the european union and the poland over the last year. turkey has joined algeria in lashing out to the french president after ammonia microns suggested there was no algerian nation before french colonial rule anchor branded microns words. a populace may have had of next year's election in france. turkey, algeria are now part of an expanding list of nations. kimberly, at loggerheads with paris, charlotte dubin scape reports, france isn't having the easiest of times. it seems to be battling on multiple
4:21 pm
fronts internationally and was that it's waging offers some foibles. take how g, re a frances form, a colony, it's resisting president microns attempts to draw the line, and it has an ax to grind. that didn't go down well and then to add insult to injury my home blamed hatred towards france. young algerians hole in the political military system, which had really written history based on lies when questioned. what is algeria was there in algeria nation before french colonization? that's the question. i'll jury a post 1900. $62.00 is built on a memorial rent that declares france is the whole problem, q a recall done bassinger,
4:22 pm
while algeria also plays it as space to see the french military notes. colonial presses are not to welcome the country, essentially set this leisure which pushes the process official relations with some of our countries into unfortunate crisis situation should result through unconditional mutual respect. that's not the only trouble facing france in africa. marley has a summons. the french ambassador for split nations. it's furious that has crawled, seeks to withdraw its troops. he can still think that he can hold the fort by sabre rattling, but if you're near the left hand to button, the situation arising from the end of operation back on puts molly in a fait accompli bundling those mid flight to assist. thank and it forces us to install alternatives and means the best to ensure
4:23 pm
a security on the mostly or with other partners. and then there is this whole my t castro fee. there was no why that we could have taken this decision without it having and causing deep disappointment and hood to to france this this there's no way we could have avoided that if it wasn't bad enough that a straight country which ranks a few more than several runs below france and military strength shocked it all for a rendezvous with the u. s. it also invited the briggs it fuckin is long for the jolly, the french what dears and found themselves crying out. which brings us to the u. k.
4:24 pm
my horn has often been compared to napoleon the will he get caught in the next of is very own waterloo. fancy. so incense over the u. k. 's refusal to let it fishermen tool they catch in british waters. it's even threatening to cut the countries electricity supply. surely it would make more sense to just pass on the increasing costs of energy to the bricks, making them pay double, but no mcenroe government is forcing a battle of wills who will blink 1st. all of this comes as a friendship president is set to face his stay 1st competition to date. as the presidential election hurtles closer, many at suggesting the only person who blow a hole in makins hopes is well himself trans has lost its position for some time already. i would say since the end of a show to go as president transit is lost,
4:25 pm
its position on the little stage of france has decided to follow the steps to the united states and nato. and we've seen the catastrophe of that in afghanistan and iraq in extreme savio. we seen that france is totally lost. it macro is just living on the orals at france just to have. and i was just finding out that this power that france started had. he just doesn't have it, he's not the only one. he's just the one which is a he is the president wishes exposing this to the, to the, to the public that france is no longer the power. it used to think it was on the busiest threads in britain was brought to a grinding halt. hit again today in the latest protest by climate activist group insulate britain. it states a number of similar stunts in recent weeks. in the bid to force the government to think more green, disclosing many motors to see red is shandey. edward dusty explains jackie behind me in the late britain. as you can see,
4:26 pm
they are located in the road here in central london that project, their aim, their mission is environmental action. they want the government to heed that open message that cause as much disruption as possible, trying to back up the roads of central london. what they want is the government to pledge to retrofit and insulate homes properly, and to make them more energy efficient by 2030, something they're asking, the government to advertise immediately is led to the home to the u. k. is, is walk along the route really to the government is one of the 1st and easy things to be doing. so we're in a serious, desperate, desperate situation. so the good we need to act and now we go very high fuel prices . so maybe we're going to have more than $3400000.00, which households and fuel probably within a couple of months, i do have more than a and a half 1000 pension is going in our country this winter. i don't know, i totally understand people's anger. bar i can sit by while pension is
4:27 pm
a dime that i have enough money. so nathan, all the other methods petitions, march is appealing letters to m. p a. all of these things, nothing, no action and we are given today. nobody wants to picking the district. good people getting on there a way nobody wants to do that with doing it with tense touch to do some tickets. total con it already, and they very just been here for a few minutes a comes despite the government taking a fresh injunction just last week. banning into late members from obstructing the roads, obstructing the traffic, particularly on the no 2 ways and a road in and around london as well. and people in and around this round about are incredibly angry. you're not letting bosses cause is one thing. bus cities only function with public transport. you 4 block probably crowd. i meant to take my keys on dick
4:28 pm
with no right to be in. i understand what he's doing. it is causing a delay. jones out as a bubble, angry. i'm just gonna deal with. well, it seems as though insulate personally, don't have the public on site. they also don't have the politicians on site either, or is johnson just a few days ago, labeled these protest as, as irresponsible and impossible cross these are the tensions right here are quite high indeed. as a huge please your presence i haven't yet arrested anybody, but that's only a matter of time until they change their minds. ah, with we've been here for around an hour or so and has been at least a dozen arrests, but they're still around a 1000 protesters that have literally glued themselves to the rose. i've spoken to
4:29 pm
a few people that have now been arrested one woman who was arrested 9 times, so she's prepared to go to prison for this cause. and so she's doing this simply for a better world in the future. i've already been arrested for and i'll keep doing it . i that the government start taking notice and insulated. how is this a very simple, a stop day just to use the money just got into a think houses walker carrying on with that coming the economy. a part time they started being long. so under these new measures these protesters could be child up to 6 months and receive a hefty fines as well. which campaign is there's a complete denial of their rights to peacefully protest. and as annoying as this group may be, what anybody, he told me about them if they went so disruptive, this group at least say,
4:30 pm
is that the government and the government did stop this whole in a moment. and of course, may conceive to that mas okay, up to they. don't forget lawson one use available on a website, can squeeze all the stories in just here in the half an hour. check them out at auntie dot com. ah, ah ah hello and welcome to crossing were all things considered? i'm peter lavelle. the bible ministrations decision to leave afghanistan was correct and long overdue. however, the way americans longest war ended is a different question. it was a botched affair. the generals will most likely never be held to account, put alone marine, lieutenant colonel does face court mar.
