7:12 pm
ukraine's president blamed the self proclaimed republics. is sure. yesterday they showed some shells on temporarily occupied territories that allegedly came from outside. and then some shells have been shown even on rust off regions territory because those are all provocation with those allies. nobody died that no one is injured. that's just cynicism. but it's such a high level shilling themselves. they themselves shooting at the territory. they control the news, the statements, they're the ones shooting in relation to the people of don bass could only be made by a solar cynic given how many people in the don? yes can. lu ganske republics have died over the years. the special o s. c e monitoring mission is registering shelling that comes considerably more from ts forces. perhaps that is why washington withdrew us observers from the mission so that there would be no american witnesses. after all, they could accuse the government of lying it top level diplomatic incident is also
7:13 pm
mounting around german chancellor, all of sholtes. following his meeting with president putin schultz, branded ridiculous. the fact that putin described the situation in dunbar as a genocide, russia's foreign ministry called the chancellors response, unacceptable. adding the kremlin, we'll send a dispatch to berlin with information about mass graves in eastern ukraine, german regional n p. martin dolts are and told us that schultz should have been more careful over such as sensitive issue. this is absolutely not the way to handle the company. contact the ukrainian army. grasping the dongle of the people at the experience of 2014, we have to see a genocide to something very seriously threatening the genocide to something systematically causing suffering and causing walk, rising and destroying people's life. and if now there is a potential situation like we have in the border region where there have been

7:16 pm
when we strengthen the spiritual core and bring that into all of our life with ah, welcome back, this is our to international. now in canada, police in riot gear have swept through the streets of ottawa arresting 47 protesters and towing away trucks as they tried to bring a close to the protest against covey restrictions that has gone on for almost a month. now, the, the arrests come on top of a $100.00 on friday. as officials slowly re took control of the streets in front of

the countries parliament buildings. please say that they were forced to use a chemical irritant to combat assault of behavior. after don and helmets and using the toms to control routing protesters. authorities have said that some protesters were in body armor, while others carried smoke grenades and fireworks for leaders were among those arrested. and many of those who gathered on the streets of ottawa have accused authorities of a heavy handed approach. distressing video being shared online shows mounted police forcing their way through the demonstrators ah, like a blue
7:18 pm
eye. oh boy. 7 those resisting arrest were forcefully taken away by officers with several pins to the ground before being hentoff. among them, movement organizes from ottawa, it please to have confirmed the dozens of rests were made during the clear up. 6 we began making arrests of key individuals who were responsible for organizing these unlawful activities this morning, public order units, and a significant number of officers were deployed to support our operations. as of 3 pm today, we've arrested 70 people. they have been charged with a multi with multiple various offenses, including mischief work is underway by the city of ottawa to remediate and clean up the area that we've gained back today. freedom convoy organizer rick wall believes the government's actions violate canadas democratic values. it's very
7:19 pm
disturbing to see where federal government has big enough and you know, and both in the emergency for simply having hundreds of thousands of people peacefully protesting in this country is the exact opposite of what a democracy should look like. with our movers are showing a prime example of how a free democracy should work and to be able to practice the right, the peaceful protests when it comes to not being democratically correct. i think that our, our, our federal government and is showing a prime example of that there, that they've denied so many of the last couple years. and now that the people have taken action and thing enough enough because because our provincial and federal leaders, you know, they wouldn't stand with the people over the past couple years. now, you know, we're practicing our, our race a piece of protest. that's the one last freedom that we feel we have left in this
7:20 pm
country and now even not to be stripped away from us. so it's very concerning. and in a very disturbing rallies, we're not just taking place in canada. capital u. s. truckers joined their canadian counterparts to again block the border between the countries. online fundraisers for the protests were blocked and the accounts of people linked to the demonstrations frozen weaving. some protesters in financial limbo journalist and blogger, lauren southern, who joined my colleague, kevin owen from the border says freezing bank accounts will backfire on the government. i'd say 90 percent of the trucks year have already left their headed down to multiple locations. i'm in july, british columbia right now. half of them are going to be headed down to a road near the border that we have actually shut down a bit. checkpoints the garage to ensure that no convoy. so just to go there to shut it down between and washington and how many people are going to that use
7:21 pm
organization because those hundreds, well, which way they, when there's like about a 1000 people here, like i said, 90 percent of what you still. 2 got, you know, dozens of people. i was all over the place. it's shocking. this is the opposite side of canada, right? this is the opposite side of rainy day. you still thousands of people coming out to protest the media and the government over this mandate issue. these have been known valid demonstrates is the bank account for the emergency that's just been used as that goes down. yeah, so i was speaking some people on the ground here. they travelled from hours out. say i was everything i've donated, i've taken part in the tom boy protest. 2 and now i'm not even gonna have a bank account anymore. so what do i have to lose about a mortgage is the rent food? that's an excellent question and i think that's why you're going to keep seeing the approach as well. because people are terrified they have nothing can use that
7:22 pm
report. and this is going to be interesting to note the play because he may squash the protested auto watch. but you can have a crazy walk them all across the country of other protective showing up and coming out saying fine, we want to take everything from us. we want to take our bank accounts, our jobs were going to have nothing better to do that. camp out in whether it be still as toronto, ottawa across the country that are not going to shop another scandal surrounding the black lives matter movement in the u. s. as an affiliated group in kentucky, reportedly paid $100000.00 bond to free an activist charged with the attempted murder of a jewish mayoral candidate. the group has openly defended the 21 year old suspect, saying he suffers from mental health issues. he is said to have walked into may oral hopeful greg greenberg's office last week and opened fire. no one was injured, but the group's decision to back the alleged shooter has sparked
7:23 pm
a wave of criticism. i do believe the black lives matter with the black lives matter organisation has a serious anti semitism problem and it's supporting and bailing out terrorists when a black person tries to shoot a politician, you all scream mental health. when a white person shoots up a school and cries, mental health, you all say, throw them in jail. it's not your pock chrissy. it's not irony. it's what happens when society starts to unravel. the bad guys treated like heroes and the heroes treated like foes. meanwhile, e commerce giant amazon has removed the b l m global network foundation from its charity platform. amazon smile, meaning the movement will no longer receive donations from amazon purchases. the decision was made after the b l. m. group failed to explain where $60000000.00 of their donations went. it's really a sad situation. it would be laughable if it worked such
7:24 pm
a situation. this young man, i think was what 4 years ago, 3 or 4 years ago period with joy read on m. s. a, b, c and talking about, you know, as part of the black lives matter. and one of those you talk about later on in an article that he wrote was talk about how republicans don't care about gun control and things of that. like, you know, and here it is, the 1st for 2 years later and here he walks a murder, a democratic candidate. it seems to be pretty much in keeping with that sort of radical, leftist kind of mindset. but what did black lives matter? do they build them out of jail? he tried to murder someone and they billed them out of jail. how was it ever the right thing to do? this has been the demo for this organization. there are fraud, the always have been or that there's a for me this hour. i will be back in the let's say 35 minutes with another full in fresh look new stay with us or change national.
7:25 pm
ah, ah, more than 20 years have passed since one of the world's deadliest terrorist attacks that took thousands of lives. people started to scream. there was a wave that came over us. that was like opening up an oven door, but not all wounds of heel. the survivors and responders have increased rates of cancer and other health issues due to the dust and chemicals they inhaled. come in to get my blood cleaned out by the metals. a lot of them would come in with in terms of 1st responder with well, over a 100001st responders. and there was some estimates that tend to 20 percent still have to do some never achieve full recovery. well,
7:26 pm
let sure sure that i have with friends. i thought i was humbled before this really home as you depreciate wife with these people learn from their own experience, how vulnerable of business is to the bank. so he pushes my business over, the age, pushes me right to the edge, bankruptcy. now i realize we were good. this isn't just the back that may be involved in this is the concept. see, firms is, is the lawyers, these people have got you want other stories? ottawa kind of whistle blower. tell people's marriages have broken up, lost their family homes. it is spectacularly devastating for people's lives. they have committed suicide, but left behind norwich. they explicitly state that it was the constant intimidation and billing by buying coff resource that late them to i talked to spy
7:27 pm
. it's obscene. these people up north salt. ah i'm nice guys, are this is the kaiser report and the we have got a lot to cover today. stay see, hey max. in the 2nd half we speak to the vice president of el salvador. and soon after we wrapped our interview with him, the news broke from the committee on foreign relations in the u. s. senate. this is remarkable. here is the headline british menendez cassidy, introduce legislation to mitigate risks of al salvatore's adoption of bitcoin. us senators, jim, rich of idaho bob menendez, of new jersey, ranking member and chairman of the senate,
7:28 pm
foreign relations committee and bill cassidy of louisiana. today introduce the account ability for crypto currency in el salvador. the ace's act legislation requiring a state department report on our salvatore's adoption of bitcoin, a crypto currency as legal tender and a plan to mitigate potential risks to the u. s. financial system. i'm going to read the next quote from one of the senators, just so you see the, the scale of the threat that between poses to the united states dollar. because here el salvador is like a $2530000000000.00 economy. and they're saying this about bitcoin as legal tender here, el salvador, adoption of bitcoin as legal tender raises significant concerns about the economic stability and financial integrity of a vulnerable u. s. trading partner in central america said rish this new policy has the potential to weaken us sanctions,
7:29 pm
policy and powering malign actors like china and organized criminal organizations. our bipartisan legislation seeks greater clarity on el salvadoran policy and requires the administration to mitigate potential risk to the u. s financial system and they go on to actually say it undermines the role of the u. s. dollar as reserve currency. right. i was pretty shocked by this. really. i mean, i knew the dollar was vulnerable and i knew the dollar was in trouble, but i didn't know the us dollar was in this much trouble. that country like salvatore. as you point out, it's a $3540000000000.00 economy by then making bitcoin legal tender. what the senators are suggesting is that a threatens the entire u. s. world reserve currency, the dollar, the us dollar had gemini, and that can only be true if the united states dollar and it satellite client states around the world are engaged in the massive pansies game like burning off.
7:30 pm
so i, i can't understand why anyone reading that. i wouldn't want to just go all in on big coin because as the dollars now they've shown their hand, it will with that question now collapse. and big coin is paul tutor, jones is said, is the fastest source in the race. i can't imagine anyone holding dollars at this point, it's absolutely untenable. you must be insane. the whole dollars, you know, in terms of the us dollar reserve. here's the quote about that. and then i'm going to say a few thoughts about this el salvador. recognizing between his official currency opens the door for money laundering cartels. they always say that an undermines us interest, said doctor cassie, if the united states wishes to combat money laundering and preserve the role of the dollar as a reserve currency in the world. we must tackle this issue head on. so they are being very blunt about what they see in terms of understanding.
