5:00 pm
this was cause a report, ah, ah ah, what do we do? go to war with the nato block. as some one thought about this, asked president potent talking about, he trades, potential nato membership, something russia strongly opposed. elsewhere, denied britons, prime minister toughened his rhetoric against russia. and threatened sanctioned grave consequences and a response from the army, but not britons, ukraine's up and no jobs. no job with no way. canadian truck has continued take a stand against poet. mandate. the scaling words of the prime minister. he slowly raised his extremities. what have i done to deserve bab
5:01 pm
with hello, this is our international welcome. so we'll do that one. i am for moscow live with me, kevin, how? in the 1st russian president putin's delivered a stinging rebuked against nato's military backing of ukraine. warning of the dire consequences from such a strategy association. his cause you, when you might listen carefully to what i say in ukraine's own doctrinal documents, it is written that they plan to return crimea, including by military means that is not what they say publicly imagined. for yourself that ukraine and they to member filled with weaponry and begins and operation in crimea. not to mention dumbass that his sovereign russian territory. for us in this sense, the question is closed. what do we do? go to war with the nato block? has someone thought about this is, seems not. while vladimir putin definitely had some strong words for the west of that press conference, he flat out accused washington and nato of deceiving russia with their refusal to
5:02 pm
stop the military alliance from further eastward expansion into countries. specifically, ukraine and georgia. this is something that nato actually promised to the soviet union, back in 1990. they promised that the, that the military alliance would not move an inch eastward of the older river in europe actually, and put, and specifically pointed out that there is nothing actually in nato's charter that concerns a sort of open door policy that a lot of western officials have been pointing to with relation to potential nato expansion, put and said that it's the charter only says that the alliance can accept new countries. maybe if all of the actual member countries agreed of this. now, according to prudent, this behavior also shows that washington is not actually interested in the defense of ukraine, or it's security. they're actually interested more so in putting a lid on russia's growth. so it just, it seems to me the united states is not so much concerned about the security of
5:03 pm
ukraine as about holding back the development of russia. ukraine itself is simply a tool to achieve this goal. now at another point in that press conference put in extrapolated on what he said there, he said basically that can be achieved to one and 2 ways. dragging russia into an armed conflict or driving a wedge between itself and its european allies. and then there's another big conversation to mr blinking to mr. leverett earlier on saying basically the same thing on the phone. yeah, that's true. this all comes really shortly after they had this conversation over the phone where they were discussing washington's rejection of moscow's proposals for security guarantees. following that phone call, lab rob immediately sent letters to all of the foreign ministries of the member states of the organization for security and cooperation in europe, basically called out the united states for its selective interpretation of specifically the estate ball and astonished declarations of that organization. that i just mentioned, they are, these declarations basically defined the boundaries within which sovereign nations
5:04 pm
can choose what military alliance they want to be. a part of these documents clearly state that any sovereign nation can, of course join a military alliance that it wants to join. and of course, us loves this flaws, but what the russian foreign minister is pointing to in this letter is that washington is deciding not to look at another no less important clause in these documents. and that is that a country cannot join the military alliance if it impedes with the national security of another sovereign nation. so let's take a listen to what love rob said. it should take you to look at the principle of indivisibility, is not something we will give up on. we insist on an honest conversation, and on an honest explanation of why the west does not want to fulfill its obligations, wants to fulfill them. we selectively in its favor, when you begin less, you. now that comes just about a week after washington officially sent its response to moscow's proposals for
5:05 pm
security guarantees rejecting them the security guarantees moscow proposed back in mid december. so it was a while after they proposed that they received this response and it's the 2 key proposals that were that are that were concerned with here are like i said, the, the eastward expansion of nato. and to specifically ukraine in georgia. but also the deployment of offensive weapons into europe that could possibly strike russia. and this is all, you know, this is relevant because it's all after months of nato officials, western officials, the media saying that russia is planning some sort of a vague invasion of ukraine. that their military exercises on their own territory is somehow threatening to ukraine. and moscow is time and time again said there's nothing threatening going on here and we're not planning an invasion of ukraine. so you know, we have to see diplomacy develops here. but so far, what we have heard is that a foreign policy chief has already discussed russia's letter with represented in washington and nato. so we'll see how it developed was course lifestyle. mcadams,
5:06 pm
executive director at ron paul institute for peace and prosperity. hey, there. thanks for time. so let me put inside this really harsh words flying around nato's con. he says russia by promising not to advance eastwood but still doing so in the early ninety's. it said it wouldn't do it then. it's not that others fallen on deaf ears more and more for need to in the us. it was a gentlemen's agreement, but then, but it seems that the gentleman abiding by these days twisting their way out of it . yeah, that's the case. you know, i think russia's been pretty legalistic about his whole dispute with us and maybe perhaps not understanding that this us team is making it up as they go. they don't feel constrained by any sort of legalistic terms. they've made a decision that decision is primarily driven, i would say, by domestic concerns in the us and to a degree in the u. k. we have a president in the u. s. is deeply, deeply unpopular. he's desperate to do something to rally americans behind him. and
5:07 pm
this is viewed by the u. s. foreign policy establishment as a sort of a risk free way of boosting his numbers, which is the rest of us who are saying believes it's a very dangerous game to play who to know. so said officially, ukrainian government documents show they want to use military force to seize crimea, while ukraine has been asking for so much military assistance from the west. indeed, very forefront, a potent minded, but worries of the danger, the big danger that could spark off. well, go for it, you know, i mean, that's not going to happen. ukraine is not going to take crimea back, you know, the u. s. government loves to talk about self determination. there was a vote. busy in crimea, they voted to rejoin a russia that had it had been part of for hundreds of years. russian troops were already there. the americans love to say that russia invaded crimea. russia was already there. it had a lease up until i don't know the end of next century. so no, this is a good argument to not let him in. but you know,
5:08 pm
the u. s. is not interested in a good arguments. the u. s. is interested in the political when the bite administration, i should say. yeah, but again, bacteria won't put into the sailor earlier on. he said dire consequences, even war could happen. if ne, to accept she cried into the lodge, you can see the ways thinking can you? well, of course, i mean is obviously a threat. it's a threat that we're sending that the us government, not us, are sending hundreds of millions of dollars in weapons. we have troops on the ground training ukrainians. how to kill russians, how to kill ethnic russians in don bass, the whole, the whole thing is absolutely insane. who we've got nato edging russia to ensure that the minsk agreements are fulfilled on one end. but then the on the other, we've got ukraine still not doing so big contradiction. why isn't ukraine made to do so? hell they have big backers. but i think us is worried that the lensky is going
5:09 pm
a little squishy. and certainly over the past couple of days, you know, it to the point where he actually reno rebuked president. biden's thing hate show out. this is the thing is not imminent. the us has gone from the invasion is imminent. take cover a get under your desks too. well, why don't you pull your troops back if you're really not on wednesday? you know, that's a huge chasm between those 2 positions. standing back from this as we are tonight with everything that's been said over the last weeks and everything that's been said particularly today, where are we? what is america want to happen here? what does it think is going to happen in america, renee to? well, i would say by did ministration, not america, but binding ministration, wants ukraine to do something stupid. we know i because they're looking for a cheap domestic wind boost for biden's numbers. if the war at the cost of a localized war, they hope but listen, these are the people who've been wrong on foreign policy for decades. these are the people who thought invading iraq be a super swell idea that staying in gaining stanford 20 years is
5:10 pm
a great idea. that it's a great idea to arm al qaeda in syria. you know, these are the people who are running things. it's you know, that they hope in ukraine if they're smart, they'll go back in the history books and look up hungary in 1956 when they were also goaded on by the usa, polk, russia, polk, the soviet union. and i think that's what they're hoping for, and they believe they can contain it. this time they will be wrong again, like they were always wrong. insane or voices are not allowed to be heard right now in the us, but the cause could be so severe if they have got it wrong. and that happens what you think is going to happen at the 11th hour. while the u. s. is not going to go in and attack russia and ukraine, that's not going to happen. and neither is nato. there is a serious division within nato. correlations already said no go. well gary has said no go back to or bun from hungry is in moscow right now. i. he may not be as enthusiastic as croatia to stay up and he's certainly not about to kick coaching in the face the day after they met the germany is not thrilled about it. the band
5:11 pm
weapons overflights in their territory, france is maintaining diplomacy over this. so you have a very divided european union and nato that are not enthusiastic about washington and london swore right now done mcadams directive director, the room full institute for peace and prosperity. thanks kevin, on the program, give show views. thanks for having me. well, i said there's a lot to play with a lot of her tough talking further to put him pointing out that the west doesn't care about ukraine over care of at the same time. yesterday britton's pm was hinting russian invasion will be 40, said to the last ukrainian well, barnes johnson certainly ramping up the rhetoric today as saying that basically any escalation from russia would be a political, humanitarian and minute trim mistake and disaster threatening russia with strong military might boots on the ground, only not british troops on the ground because apparently no western government
5:12 pm
really wants to get that involved to bring the cross is too close to home. but speaking, kevin, a joint conference with the president of ukraine bars. johnson was also threatening russia saying that a packet of sanctions was right there at the ready should any russian military personnel step even a toe cap into foreign territory. there would be ready to lump russia with these sanctions, but also in terms of this military might think very specific about the ukranian army, but also appealing to the russian public to the single most useful thing we can do is get over to the russian public. the ukrainian army will find a route to other thousands of many women on rome's in ukraine. they would put up a very, very fierce, bloody resistance. like i think that parents, mothers in russia should reflect on her. well,
5:13 pm
what we've learned from birth strengthens trip to care. this is almost running away from issues right here in the heart of a, westminster, up home falling all of these party gates scandals, offer scandals that have erupt it in westminster, but quite embarrassingly full of the prime minister bar. as johnson, the very 1st question addressed to him in kiev was all about the party gates scandal engulfing westminster. which surprised surprise he somewhat ignored. instead, he tried to focus on d escalating tensions on the eastern border, although some would argue he's not doing a very good job of that either because he's still yet to have a conversation with improved. and even though he was supposed to have it much earlier on in the week, it's still been postpone, it still hasn't happened. and the fact that both children haven't even picked up the phone is being branded as a joke. embarrassing and pathetic by m. p. 's here in westminster, who thinks he's putting issues at home above a serious crisis. amid
5:14 pm
a dangerous crisis threatening peace in europe, a vital diplomatic opportunity has been missed. his boris johnson scrambles to hold on to his job. these are the real world consequences of a distracted prime minister, unfit for office, running a government in disarray. boris johnson says he's helping with the diplomatic situation in russia and ukraine. he has no credibility. no one trusts him. the best thing he could do to help would be to resign while it comes as the latest pulse suggests that 9 and 10 people here in the u. k. i don't think bars, johnson is fit to run the country. it also comes as his approval ratings are really, really low at the moment, just 22 percent. so it seems like you want to move on from the sou gray report and all of its findings on the backlash to it as quick as possible. so he's a new crane, but he is without the foreign secretary liz trust. she's actually tested positive even though she was supposed to be assisting him on his travels. however, before she tested positive, she took to the house of commons, upping the ante as well. with that robust rhetoric and threatening russia with the
5:15 pm
sanctions. however, unfortunately for her, she was met with cheers and laughter from across the house. as it seems, many m p 's can't really take the government seriously. those in and around the kremlin will have no where to hide. we will make sure that those who share responsibility for the kremlin aggressive the stabilizing action will share in bearing a have a cost well, big to katherine barnes jones in the prime minister describing potential aggression of vladimir putin. but all of this tough talk many m p 's here in the ok. so they say it's a quite a distraction and deflection from what exactly is happening in westminster and what exactly the government has been up to during the pandemic. and it's not just m p, 's know the public to have that opinion. but indeed, british media and journalism in general is coming out with some pretty tough headlines against the prime minister. burns johnson saying it's only
5:16 pm
a matter of time till he is out that his roman empire is fooling. and even indeed that his government is the worst in history. what i will say to the president innocence, i've said, is that i think we really want to step back from the britain. and i think a russian, someone they bring the end of the party british from is the birth johnson on the brink of exit chorus. on the brink, labor store, my head in latest pulls off the party shock. a good to party, gave incredibly stupid scandal make up for his job. the job through grace is downing street behavior is difficult to justify florence johnson to weaken blood part to get time bob to influence ukraine crisis. defense chief wants peers, mind your own, bring primary learners follow chipping in to telling a sanctions he thinks we're both far on the u. k. and johnson,
5:17 pm
just at the moment trying to detract from his big problems. back home. on 26 years old, i grew up in a world where we were dominated by the cold war. we were told all the time by our politicians. we run, distract from what was said in the soviet union. today it's russia. and then also the cold war ended, we are all the documents released. i, we haven't been under threat and graduate america was the big aggressor. i don't believe a word that the british government, or the american government is saying about the intentions of putin. if you know that the lead of ukraine is telling the west to sort of wind all this down, i don't feel under threats at all. if we get into sanctions with russia, we will be in a position where it damages many of our businesses, many, perhaps tens of thousands of people lose their job here in this country. and the simple fact is that he's all i think, being ran tough by our prime minister boris johnson to distract attention from the
5:18 pm
scandal he's involved in that he held always illegal parties at 10 downing street while the rest of us were really not them. now this is we boy breaking news earlier on on it to school shootings are the same, dave said, shock waves, throat american communities, one of the private liberal law school of virginia, the other academy in minnesota. let's go speed keller bo pins in new york city. heather caleb, so it's more about what's going on here than sure. well we have one student shot dead in richfield, minnesota. another student injured and in critical condition, this shooting took place outside of the south educational center. now at this point, the shooter is still at large, has not been apprehended. this school was placed on locked down. police did a thorough sweep of the school. i didn't find anything. so at this point, police are looking for the suspect, one student, his dad, one student is injured now, bridgewater college, far away in virginia,
5:19 pm
also had an active shooter situation today. now there were no injuries in this active shooter situation. the governor of virginia has tweeted out that the school shooter was apprehended. the federal and local officials were on the scene at the university which was placed on lockdown. in this instance, there were no injuries of the shooter was apprehended, and the school was placed on lockdown in response to it. so 2 incidents here in the united states, one that involved a fatality and another that apparently did not. is sad to hear. it's scary thanks to bring this up to speed there caleb truck in this next. what's happened in canada now? canadian police preparing to despise that truck, located on the us border and the province of alberta. we followed across the weekend part of mass protest the course against cobra. the vaccination mandates. police say they're not ready to make arrests and tow away the vehicles, the prime minister reported the fled also at the weekend as thousands of this protest is descended on. the city is apparently the pulled fuel of
5:20 pm
a fire by branding them a mob of racists. he said, who steal food from the homeless? i want to be very clear. we are not intimidated by those who hurl insults and abuse at small business workers and steal food from the homeless. we won't give in to those who fly racist flags. we won't cave to those who engage in vandalism or dishonor the memory of our veterans, the prime minister dressed up in racist costumes. so many times he can't remember them all. doesn't mean every single liberal is a racist. i do respect that member. i just wish his government would respect the thousands of people who are fighting for their livelihoods right now here who are trying to do the best to get this country back on track. like for instance,
5:21 pm
canadian truck is steven whitman, who says the government in his view is dividing the nation to serve its own goals. he's calling me a racist, his extremist. what have i done to deserve that? my government is supposed to have my back. when you're in trouble and you need help, your government is supposed to be there for you. they're not supposed to drag you down. and what i've seen over the past 2 years, it's been devastating as breaks. it breaks my heart because my government supposed to have my back. i work hard and one day, you know, i was hero and now i'm, i'm a racist in an extremist and it hurts. it hurts so much that i can't even put it into words. it makes me not want to be a canadian anymore. it further puts strain on, on the system of almost $16000.00 more drivers, which is going to drive the prices up. and it's infuriating that he is dividing
5:22 pm
a nation. he's it dividing his voters so that he can push an initiative to be popular on the world stage. the movement right now, it is bo my mind. it as a truck driver. i've been following it almost every hour. watching that the numbers roll and the support grow and it is so heart warming. it's so emotional to see the support from around the world. and it's growing. i mean it's growing and it's growing so fast, it's taken a life of its own. and it's so wonderful to watch what truck has set up, what boards up located as they demand. the vaccine mandates be canceled. summer saying they determined to stay la despite the threat to being arrested. another rally took place in the capital altura monday i spoke to a resident, tracy roseborough. she was among the crowd. yeah. yeah. we have the prime minister who is not being extremely myself. or thanks. matt,
5:23 pm
thank people are now producing very like i guess people who are very late this go back firing on divided by longer just the fact that the fact we want to read all of this and the saudi led coalition targeted civilian buildings in the middle of residential neighborhoods in the empty capital in the late hours of monday night, according to local media, becomes, is called the nation grows against a saudi led air raid on a yeah, many prison that cause the highest civilian casualties in years correspondence. daniel hawkins has the latest. it's one of the deadliest single airstrikes in yemen . civil war,
5:24 pm
starting out even among dozens of such incidents with the red cross condemning it as the worst incident of civilian casualties in 3 years. and i learned a lot about her since we didn't have any information that there would be an attack, we only heard the sound of the strike. i heard it when i was at home. i went out and entered the jail. i saw a body parts everywhere. oh what a lot of us i heard groans and screams. some prisoners were clinging to the walls. i shined the flashlight and saw a huge number of people. the bodies of some of them were torn apart. others crawled on their stomach. some tried to get up and walk. others were locked inside the building when there were 3 strikes. the 1st blast hit the building on the east side from the side of my house, than to strike came on the western side that lives in casualty estimates in the heathy run detention facility very from 80 to over a 100, with hundreds more injured prisons had been here before an air raid in 2019 killed dozens as of wedding parties,
5:25 pm
hospitals and schools. officials from the saudi led coalition denied at responsibility for this strike, then pledged to investigate amnesty international reports on the incident as well as witness accounts on the ground. point to an all too familiar picture. a u. s. manufactured and supplied bomb, launched by coalition aircraft. go aquila, you assign us forces attack to back a prison and city of saudi using smart bombs sense that these bombs are used against ground targets and heavily fortified objects again at the span. bombs have been used earlier. why these are american bombs, as they are used by the u. s. navy and air force, as well as the saudi arabian air force. images of the shocking aftermath of hundreds of strikes had been tragically consistent throughout more than 7 years of bloody conflict. and, and jose have repeatedly called out a weapon sales to the region as a key factor in the worse and crisis. forsake images that have trickles out of yemen, or jarring reminder of who is paying the terrible price for western states,
5:26 pm
lucrative sales to saudi arabia and its coalition allies. the one thing as consistent as the stream of appalling images from yemen has been us policy on arm sale to saudi arabia and its allies. 3 administrations, both democrat and republican, have completed billions in weapons deals while the war and yemen has raged. and while trumps enthusiasm for alms deals with saudi princes was well known, there was hope the bottom administration would be different given but now prisoners criticism of saudi arabia on the campaign trail and pledges to tone down support. this war has to end. and to underscore our commitment, we are ending all american support for offensive operations in the war in yemen, including relevant arms sales. there is a very important distinction between our commitment to not engage and not support
5:27 pm
offensive activities and operations in yemen, including to the provision of offensive weapons. and the legitimate needs of the king of saudi arabia, in terms of its own defense of the united states, will continue its diplomatic outreach and engage with various stakeholders. reality has been different the spot, the efforts of some sentences, the blog sales weaponry has poured into saudi arabia and billions of dollars into the accounts of us. all the manufacturers, mounting civilian casualties have been no obstacle deciding new deals the latest just months ago. and as n g o z and groups of certain senators and congressmen call for a change in policy, even decrying the sale of the violation of us laws. it seems for now business will take precedent regardless of any assurances of change and the stream of distressing
5:28 pm
images from yemen. well, the weapons which are being used in the middle east have been a very long time given by the american. so nothing new. because the biggest weapons manufacturer, right now in the world, in the united states of america, they will continue to do this. they will need to sell because the foreign policy of the states just dictated by the military industrial complex or the money that noise in the but i am real live right now, but will it be is once again, a huge, really beneficial and profitable business. why really exclude this is the sales that have taken place between saudi arabia and america and america. oliver, that's all that saw. well, these one i am from moscow results international with me, kevin. oh and thanks for watching this addition. there are good morning to you.
5:29 pm
a ah bring you the very latest every out the day this is out. he's now snow from everyone. here with good
5:30 pm
i'm nice guys are this is the kaiser report. imagine 10 years ago and big corners, a dollar. and we told you that it would become a world reserve currency and trade in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. and you did nothing. ha, ha, stacy. right, well you know what, max, we are here in el salvador at the airport, in fact, waiting for simon dixon to arrive. but in the meantime, we have this tweet that el salvador model is spreading. people like it when i discussed my own tweets. and this is referring to story out of arizona breaking a bill was introduced in arizona to make bitcoin legal tender and the state. so the model is spreading. so in the united states, they have states rights, and this is different than what you find in europe. and it's different than what you'd find almost any other country in the world. so if the federal lawmakers are not open to making big coin legal center than the states are free to do so we're seeing so now.
