8:00 pm
ah ah ah, a useful meeting with a candid exchange of opinions at a critical moment that is how the russian and u. s. foreign policy chiefs described their talks in geneva, which come amid rising tensions over ukraine and nato expansion. we recently notified congress of our intent to deliver and 17 helicopters, white house announces it's sending military helicopters to ukraine just hours after de escalation talked with russia. other nato members are also ramping up weapon supplies. yes. let's look. we'll use those is enough to scroll through a couple of random pages to be sure, none of the provisions stand up to any critical analysis. in many cases,
8:01 pm
it is simply aligned at the news conference after the talk survey, lab rav lashes out at u. s. officials and mainstream media pushing fresh on proven claims against moscow. we will examine those claims. this out with kathy live direct from our studios and monica, this is art international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to happy with us. now the top diplomats of russia and united states have finished their security talks in switzerland as tensions over ukraine remain. i. washington is expected to provide moscow with a written response to the kremlin concerns next week or cheese peter oliver reports not from geneva. so wrapped up here in geneva, and we've now got a much clearer picture of exactly how both the us and russian side see these talk. having gone, we heard from said again for all the russian foreign minister who described them as useful and constructive. we heard from anthony blink in the us secretary of state,
8:02 pm
who said that they were frank on substances. we'll start with the russian foreign minister. so de la ro flow. he was 1st to give his press conference. after the meeting wrapped up, he said that washington had promised to provide an answer in writing to security concerns that had been presented by moscow to the us part. and now you said that these weren't just security concerns focusing on ukraine. they were for the why the european area. he said that the future of these talks would depend on the response from the united states there. but he said that the diplomatic doors pretty much remained open. it's worth pointing out. there was no major movement on any of the, the big sticking points during the talk. certainly what the, the representative, the foreign minister in the secretary state, how to say that was major tectonic shifts in where the risk respective countries
8:03 pm
stand. what we did here though, from the russian foreign minister, is the address questions from the u. s. media with him say that there was no intention from moscow for them to invade ukraine at any time. why is russia doing this now? why do you feel that you need to make these troop deployments now, when really the security posture of the u. s. a. nato really hasn't changed over the past couple of years, much to see money. because i think the u. s. department should analyze the methods of c n n in regard to accuracy. you say we're going to attack ukraine despite multiple explanations that we won't be saying this will happen. you then ask why now, when do we not attack? it's a strange question because we've caused repeated all fundamental point that never ending native expansion to the east should be stopped. and nibbling, can repeated his position on the right to choose alliances. asked him how the u. s . plans to follow its obligation not to strengthen someone security at the expense of the security of others. he promised to explain the u. s. position on that 3rd
8:04 pm
gala rose press conference with follow up with one from us secretary of state anthony blinkin b. u. s. chief diplomat saying that the diplomatic route remained open to finding a solution to the tension between russia and the west. right now. he said that he received assurances from said gay love for all the router has no intention of invading ukraine at this moment. he said he'd receive those assurances in the past as well, but that if the actions of russia didn't match up to that, then there would be a response from the united states and its allies and not response would be swift, severe, and united. he said that there will be a response from washington to those concerns that were voiced by moscow, and that response will be coming in the next week. he also said that there's ways and means available to take the heat out of the current situation. transparency, confidence, building measures, military exercises,
8:05 pm
arms control agreements. these are all things that we've actually done in the past . and that if address seriously can, i believe reduce tensions and address some of the some of the concerns of the us secretary of state also sketched out a potential timeline of where we could be going next. he said that once they've responded to moscow, he would expect that they would be further meetings at the foreign ministerial level, perhaps here in geneva. and if those meetings went well, that that could be another meeting between president putin and president buyers and perhaps face to face perhaps here in geneva, repeat of what we saw last year, which took place in this with safety. what we have seen though is a continuation, a willingness to continue the dialogue over these ongoing tensions between russia and the west. and the u. s. will now provide, am i 17 military helicopters to give? the announcement came just hours after top level security talks with russia,
8:06 pm
where the u. s. secretary state claimed that he wanted to de escalate tensions over ukraine. i would note that the united states is delivered more security assistance to ukraine in the last year than any point in history. and these deliveries are ongoing, including today there's more deliveries coming. we recently notified congress of our intent to deliver and 17 helicopters, just hours after this high level meeting. and already we have the united states increasing military aid to ukraine. and let's remember that if this meeting, we heard russia basically be urged by the states to withdraw troops from its own soil. quite a situation. now the helicopters that the u. s. a is providing these helicopters are actually already in ukraine for maintenance. they're from the now defunct afghan army, and apparently the united states is going ahead and providing these military helicopters to ukraine. now it's also important to be aware of the fact that 3
8:07 pm
baltic states is donia, latvia and lithuania. have announced that they will be supplying lethal weapons to ukraine. this includes javelin anti tank guided missiles. they're going to be providing those to the ukraine. they'll be providing them with us support us approval. sonya nazi and the few ania and the allies working together expeditiously to handle the security assistance to ukraine. this aid will further enhance ukraine's capability to defend its territory and population in case of possible russian aggression. but there is quite a rare among the united states and its allies. here we have germany, a long time important nato ally of the united states saying that they will not be allowing permits for the transport of weapons. there are estonian weapons based in germany, and they won't allow them to be transported to ukraine. and we actually have the chancellor of germany speaking up and saying germany does not approve of the
8:08 pm
sending of lethal weapons to ukraine. the federal government has had a clear stance regarding arms exports in recent years. we have not supported the export of lethal weapons from germany. now moscow still expects that the security concerns that they raised with washington should be addressed. but these current moves from the united states, increasing military escalation, are certainly not using tensions. if former us marine corps intelligence officer says the white house is bowing to domestic politicking by wrapping up russia tensions if you don't steadily, the weapons in the united states. that opens up joe biden to criticism from congress at a time when he needs congressional support for domestic programs. so what we're seeing here is the consequences of allowing your foreign policy, your national security policy to be hijacked, by domestic with the fact that tony blinking his meeting with the lab,
8:09 pm
rob to discuss the diplomatic off ramp for the current crisis. at the same time, the united states is green lighting of the delivery of weapons for the sole purpose of killing russians, because you don't have deterrence unless you have a real capability, it's totally counterproductive and it undermines the american position when they say, you know, we won't allow nato to join for years. you don't need to worry about it. what's the difference between ukraine, this a member of nato, receiving western military aid and ukraine, who's not a member of nato receiving western military from the russia perspective. there's no difference ahead of the talks, the state department outlined what it cited as examples of russian disinformation and they report that it presents its opinions as solid facts. it was published just a couple of hours before the talks. russia's foreign minister was critical of both the content and its timing it tomorrow. you've got loaded rosenberger, lease documents, which the u. s. state department has of course prepared deliberately for today's
8:10 pm
meeting. a simply impossible to read. it's enough to scroll through a couple of random pages to be sure, none of the provision stand up to any critical analysis. in many cases, it is simply a lie among the dubious claims in the report is that nato is not in circling russia with its military basis. it argued that the real problem is that russia, while such a big country with more on the story here is ortiz broadcast. if well, over the past 24 hours, washington has launch something of a of a p r offensive, or they, they've come out. and they've said that virtually all the security concerns that russia has talked and talked about for 10 years for even longer than a decade. that all of that ease ease fiction, they've come up with, with a list of various things that russia has said that russia feels uncomfortable about all concerned about and explain why those points shouldn't be taken seriously. fiction rushes, deployment of combat forces is
8:11 pm
a me reposition of troops on its own. territory fact deployed more than a $100000.00 russian troops, including battle hard uncovered forces and offensive weaponry. with no plausible innocuous explanation to the borders of a country that russia has previously invaded and still occupies in places, is no mere troop rotation. it is a clear, renewed russia threats to ukraine sovereignty in territorial integrity. there is, of course, no mention of the fact that the russ and true buildup happened concurrently with the ukrainian to build up with the vase convoys of tags of artillery thesis, making their way towards the russian border towards eastern ukraine and the conflict lines. the conflict lines there, and the gist of that statement, for example, is that the united states is concerned with the russian troops moving inside russia . whereas, russia's concern with troop from florida from march,
8:12 pm
canada being sent half the world away, and stationed near russia, says who you can understand where rushes coming from here. but there's a, there's a whole lot more where that came from. there are passages full of inhuman falls hit and stupidity. for example, they call fake mosque a statement that the re positioning of russian troops in russian territory means repositioning of russian troops on russian territory. brilliant. what is there more hair lies or illiteracy? i did not even want to deal with it. i know one thing for sure. this could only be published by the ministry of truth. a similar situation would be russia coming out and hysterically condemning a united states to build up in texas for example. there was, there were many other points such as another one of fiction or russian fiction is that nato is surrounding washer. and here they argue that that new it isn't. rush was a huge country with, with $1414.00 neighbors that a chairs, landlord,
8:13 pm
the women, and only 5 of those a native states. well, if we look back 20 years, there was only one. then there were 3, then there were 5. and now with the essential potential ascension of, of george and ukraine in the future. right, about half of russia's, lambert, neighbors would be nato member states. so how can, how can you argue that nato isn't surrounding russia when, when you have the numbers right there, there was also another, another russian fiction. the new wouldn't promised russia that nato wouldn't expand it eastwards. this is, this is an outright lie. this is an in c, i and state department in european archives that yes they did. it's, it's in writing and a cia archives for example. then director of the cia director robert gates said the gorbachev's had been promised, had been led to believe that they wouldn't expect this with you had the james bake
8:14 pm
of the state department, the head of the state department, secretary of state back then a 3 times telling gorbachev's that they wouldn't move one inch eastward you had, then the, the then west german foreign minister asked either ginger, saying that nato shouldn't expand east that given assurances to russia. then the u . s. a saw that the, in the event of germany re unifying that native wouldn't movies. you have this in writing in rising liza archived memos, cables. nevertheless, there's, there's, as i say, much more in that list of russian fictions which are a lot of questions about. and so it seems that we here at our tea, ourselves have even become a target of washington's accusations with the us state department alleging that the channel and fellow news outlets. sputnik use this information to advance the cremeans foreign policy. we got reaction from r t host and former british m p. george galloway. the timing on the launch of
8:15 pm
this report is naked lay sign that it's part of our new propaganda offensive. but i have had the unpleasant task of reading all 33 pages of it, of the people that have lied to us over and over again. i'm now lying to us about ukraine and russia. there's market for it. there is an audience for it, but fewer and fewer people are believing these lies than ever before. thanks to the existence of r d. the existence of social media. people can find out the truth just with letting their fingers do the walking. more and more of them are americans are bristling over and eagerly awaited interview with the committee investigating the january 6 capitol hill riot. on friday,
8:16 pm
the committee was said to hear testimony from re epps, an american, at the center of a much discuss conspiracy theory. it's about suppose it f, b i involvement in the last years protest, however, a promise to transcript has still not been really on like, hey, where's the re hearing that's supposed to happens today. isn't right yet testifying in front of the sham committee to day affects the tv and can't find it. let me guess another hidden deposition that will be selectively leaks if you wanted to put re ups. rumors and conspiracy theories to bed wouldn't a live broadcast of today's testimony. been a step in the right direction. just to remind you about the controversial case re ups was caught on camera before and on the day of the protest, inciting people to go quote, go into the capital and was put on the f. b i most wanted list. however, his name was then dropped from that list, sparking conspiracy theories that he was working with the f
8:17 pm
b. i now claim apps has repeatedly denied. meanwhile, the federal agency has remained tight lipped on the matter. under intense questioning, the bureau briefly acknowledged they were aware of him but declined to comment any further. 2 who is re epps? i'm aware of the individuals or i don't have the specific background to him. on the night of january 5th, 2021 eps wandered around the crowd that had gathered. and there's video out there in canning tomorrow. we need to get into the capital in the capital. this was strange behavior so strange that the crowd began chanting bed bed bed bed bed bed. miss sanborn was right out of that. sir, i cannot answer that question. we spoke to bruce marx, who was a republican member of the pennsylvania state senate, who thinks it's too early to dismiss the fed man, conspiracy f b. i could have determined that he wasn't involved to do that he did nothing wrong
8:18 pm
. the 2nd answer is that he did something wrong, but he's cooperate and therefore they don't need him to be on the list. and then the 3rd answer is of course that he could have been an f, b i, informant. and that whoever put him on the list didn't realize it at the time. and then once they realized that he was an f b i, informant, they removed him from the list right now that, that's just speculation. but it's possible the f b, i has used infiltrators in the past that joined organizations and, and encouraged to illegal activity. and i think it's a matter of concern. that's why it's really important for the f b i and the department of justice to explain to the public whether mister epps was acting on behalf of the government, or that it wasn't us house speaker nancy pelosi has been accused of a cynical you turn after she back to a ban on stock market trading by lawmakers despite her family topping the list of
8:19 pm
democrats. profiting from the much criticized practice. but critics note, she's hoping to divert growing anger at officials, profiting from inside information by demanding that supreme court members are also banned from trading stocks. to give a blanket attitude, if we can't do this and we can't do that because we can't be trusted. i just don't buy into that, but if members want to do that, i'm ok with that. if we're saying everybody should be living by the same standard, then let so be it. that's okay with me. but i don't think that the court should be let off the hook. so i say when we go forward with anything, let's take the supreme court with us to have disclosure. plus her husband made more than $5000000.00 from a timely bed on google's parent company. just before house legislation seen as soft on big tech was passed, nancy pelosi spokesperson insisted. she had no knowledge of the transactions, but her husband's investment judgment has proven so uncanny over the years that many traders simply copy his picks to maximize profits. but now to senate democrats
8:20 pm
have proposed a bill to ban sitting members of congress from stock trading. the auditorium director of the reactionary times new site says policy by publicly back to the ban, but politicians like her will never pass the legislation. i'm a fan of this proposed legislation. nancy pelosi herself is kind of flip flopped and been on both sides of this. i think it's because, you know, she's a politician and people are right now in favor of this unusual legislation. all these politicians can beat their chests and say that this is a good idea was it comes down to the floor. they're never going to vote for it's completely unethical for members of congress to use the inside baseball that they have as it would be ignoring, you know, and foolish to not believe that they're not using the inside information that they already have to go ahead and profit on the dark, more members of congress have a direct effect on regulations and which all companies get to skirt certain
8:21 pm
regulations, which industry kind of get a push, you know, from the government in a little government subsidy asian. so you can kind of play the crystal ball in terms of the stock market. congress members have joined the public to blast the u. s. internal revenue services, new demand to use a 3rd party facial recognition app for tax returns with one congressman warning the, this is america, not china. the iris insists the i d dot me app is secure and won't be required for all services, but taxpayers point out clear potential for abuse and unsanctioned sharing with other government agencies breaking the i r s are now trying to require facial recognition to view your tax returns this is america, not china. do you mean there is a problem with id theft for tax returns, but not for voting ballots?
8:22 pm
thank you senator. especially given what we know about the i r. s ability to share data with other federal agencies. i see the f, b i, d, e, a, etc. this is essentially creating mandated us government facial recognition database that will inevitably be abused by facial recognition. the host of the politics, politics, politics, podcast, told us the iris has a worrying record when it comes to data protection. the iris has had a problem and it's been a very, very serious problem in terms of data that and it was way too easy to access somebody's back faxes that essentially gives away the golden goose in terms of somebody being able to impersonate you on line. so the federal government has already done an extraordinarily poor job of securing our data, whether id me remains a top to your vendor for which maintains their relationships with both states and
8:23 pm
federal government. that is something that, again, we do need to make sure that we keep a vigilant eye on. but as for assurances, look, this is the internet. it is a dirty place and people can get pretty much whatever they want. if you are insecure and many of us are usa, vh regulators have been forced to rush through new airport landing technology after top airlines warned of a catastrophe from interference by new 5 g mobile networks. after airline bosses said, 5 g networks could ground planes. the federal aviation administration approved new alternators that allow landings in low visibility conditions. major flag carriers from british airways til of tanza had already changed or canceled flights over this issue. because the proposed 5 g deployment involves a new combination of power levels, frequencies proximity to flight operations, and other factors. the f a will need to impose restrictions on flight operations
8:24 pm
using certain types of radar altimeter equipment close to antennas. in 5 g networks . us pilot jason clinician says the asian community is concerned about the issue. the aviation community thinks this is a huge problem, basically because there is a potential degradation of safety if we're not confident that we can fly at a safe environment we want. and so it's going to lead to more cancellations than we've already seen. 5 g is, is in a lot of different countries around the world has already been implemented in and around airports. the difference that we're seeing in the international fight is that the 5 g antennas are at different angles and using different power levels and they do in the united states. and so when they're being turned on in the united states they're, that's was causing this interference. in a report has claimed that former pope benedict, the 16th failed to take action in 4 cases of alleged sexual abuse. while he was
8:25 pm
serving as archbishop of the german cities of munich and placing the study by a german law firm, looked into cases of abuse between 945 and 2019. and how church officials handled them. according to the report, over 2 thirds of people investigated turned out to be priests. the report also said that the former pope supported this latest inquiry but denied any wrong doing. we spoke with wilfred feldman, who says he was a victim of sex abuse by the clergy during this period and he told us what he has been through. so it happened in the summer of $979.00. i was 11 years old back gun pastor act served as st. andrews church and when he left us and groups of people started attacking me, they knew i was one of the reasons he left. we moved to another district of the town and in 1999. i began to be affected by my experiences. i could not work when i had dizziness. i could not drive or simply go out of the house if my whole family
8:26 pm
was suffering because of that, i started visiting doctors to find out what the problem was. and finally i got to see a psychotherapist. i told him the whole story and he said i had been through a really traumatic experience that triggered memories of all the abuse. i had experience. when i saw the pastor munich, he was standing among other pastor, smiling. i told myself, listen paraphilias disease. so he'll most likely keep going. he did. it is not the 1st time the senior catholic clergyman have been under fire over alleged sexual abuse. numerous other cases have been reported in other german cities and also ireland and france. wilfred feldman again says that after his letter, pope benedict changed punishment guidelines for clergy guilty effects offences. but since it is taken too long to happen, when i'm feeble on flight in 2006 in 2008, i sent an automated emails to the munich diocese. i wrote about my experiences with pastor acts when he was in s and they ignored my letter in 2006. so i try it again
8:27 pm
in 2008 when abuse victims were demanded compensation for the 1st time. they then describe my letter as criminal blackmail, but it's clear that i hadn't been blackmailing the church. those officials who came to me real life, i was a victim right away. they also realized they themselves had been used by the church . they were simply fooled by it. i was 1st of all concerned about justice because the pastor just went to another place when i was writing the letter. it was important to me to protect others and may 2010. i wrote to pope benedict. i told him my whole story on may 21st. i got a response saying the pope would take care of it and he really did. but as we have seen, it took 2530 years for a victim to open up and start talking about it. is that is it for me this hour? i will be back in the say $32.00 and a half minutes with another full and freshly janice says our international students with the move oh, you move in simplest possible form and i was and got started and all the needed to
8:28 pm
be honest with it before actually, and then this stuff expanding so where doors, creations come from and hopefully the switch is not the kind aggression the science can so called enhanced interrogation techniques used by the u. s. officials were basically designed as techniques to break down the human mind. if you force a human being to stay in a certain position doesn't take very long to the pain involved to become absolutely excruciating, but nobody's lane finger on you. you are doing it to yourself. and we started adopting those techniques when i was station in mosul. among them were stress, position, sleep deprivation,
8:29 pm
and usually hypothermia. there's already beginning to be evidence that these old techniques are now being used on immigrant children. whatever you do or war comes home, nobody has been held accountable for the torture that happened in the past. the moral authority, the made america awarded or sacrifice. but the shimmer of effective interrogation long mo, when i was sure seemed wrong when i was just a to shape out of the african and engagement, it was the trail. when so many find themselves will depart, we choose to look for common ground.
8:30 pm
with their 3rd boom box one bed the show you care to boredom, it's tom brenner bored and i'm ready to run in washington coming up with market taking a meeting this week where our investors turning for ahead. go ahead. we'll take a look at the performance of global stock thing on the toll of inflation plus the federal reserve is making moves to expand its presence in the digital currency space later on. and we'll dig into the central banks efforts and how it could impact major crypto currencies and heard the gaming secor soon be dominated by crypto currency. we discussed the future of the industry and how pay to earn a games code cement themselves in the community.
