We Need to Get Serious About Sanctions... and So Does Europe
"Know, if you go back to the war between France and Spain and the UK, in 1701, guess what? They were still importing Bordeaux wine into the UK, even though the UK was at war. With France and they were doing this by just sending it to Spain and slapping stickers on the bottles, right? And then shipping them in Spanish casks and pretending that the bourdeaux wine came from Spain. I mean, this is what happens. In Venezuela today, I have sources that tell me the ships are going to the Caribbean. They change the paperwork and the flags, in the Caribbean, and then they send the ships on to Singapore where the paperwork gets changed again. The flags get changed again and then eventually it makes its way to China. In other words, there's all these workarounds. And there's a whole bunch of middlemen in the process, and so that's the problem. If we're going to get serious about sanctions, we need to put them all in there and then we need to actually enforce them and we need to do that in conjunction by the way with the EU, which is still getting its natural gas from Europe, like that makes sense. You know, look, I get it. It's going to be painful. And we all need to recognize that. I mean, it's going to be very painful for Europe, which in turn is painful for us because they are a major trading partner with us. And they're going to have to face the fact that they relied on Russia stupidly, frankly, that was completely naive for their natural gas 45% of their supply. That's going to change. What does it do? It shoots natural gas prices higher. And they rely on natural gas. And it shoots energy prices across the board higher, which means more and more inflation in Europe, more and more inflation back here at home, less trade, et cetera. You understand, like this is a domino effect, and it's really just so darn unfortunate because we knew what Putin was capable of. We knew it from Aleppo. In Syria, we knew it from Chechnya, and somehow people are just waking up to how bad he really is and what's really happening.

Gen. Kellogg: The World Isn't Talking to Biden Like They Did to Trump
"So I had general Kellogg on the program on Sunday I do notice mister producer when I have guests boy they are cherry picked by other hosts like within minutes I had general Kellogg on a few months back I wanted to hear fresh voice as somebody recently in an administration The Trump administration advising a president of vice president national security and so forth With a fresh look at this And we had a little chat about it And in part here's what happened Cut 21 go You know Mark here's the one thing that concerns me right now because there's always a diplomatic off ramp to any conflict You'll notice that everybody is talking to president mccrone of France or all I've showed some Germany or they're talking to others around the world They're not talking to the United States Why are they not talking to the United States We're sitting on the back And they're looking on the back bench sitting watching what's happening because they don't have any trust and belief that this president President Biden can pull it off I guarantee you they'd be talking to the president Trump I guarantee president Trump would have been front and center It's also interesting to note that in the last four presidents just not the last two But when you take when you take Biden and when you take Trump and when you take Obama and when you take a bush before him the only country that Putin did not the only president that Putin did not take land when he was in office was Trump When you look at Bush he went into Chechnya when he had Obama and Biden as his vice president They went to Ukraine now with Biden's gone into crime And then we got into Ukraine now under Biden never happened under
Germany Does 180 on Defense Spending
"Now, I am not a psychiatrist psychologist and I don't project my impressions of leaders onto the media. Because I'm not in a position to judge Putin's state of mind. I just know what he's doing and what he's doing is reverting to Chechnya and Syrian tactics. In terms of what you've seen, I can judge the state of the mind of the German public because all of a sudden nearly 90% of them support massive hikes and defense spending as a former NATO allied supreme commander. That's got a surprise you and encourage you. It's been quite amazing to watch something I've been personally lobbying for and advocating for, along with the entire U.S. government for three decades. And in my case, four years is supreme allied commander literally buttonhole in Chancellor Merkel and then minister of defense, Ursula von der leyen, who's now the head of the European Union, personally button holing them and begging them to increase defense spending and all of a sudden in 48 hours Vladimir Putin has shown he's a much better persuader than admiral Jim staff read us. So I'm highly encouraged by this. I think it's been a wake-up call for Europe. And by the way, watch Sweden and Finland. If you woke up and Stockholm and Helsinki and you're outside the NATO alliance, I think this is the week when you start demanding a NATO membership card out of your government and boy, that's got to be part of Vladimir Putin's worst nightmare.

At the time those characters were then republished by Shali Abdul to coincide with the trial of the accomplices in that two thousand, fifteen attack. This is in fact, the second terror related incident since that trial began because last month a man armed with meat cleaver tried to storm. What he thought was still Shalhoub does headquarters in Paris and two injured two people in what was a botched attack.

However, it should be pointed out that Patty told pupils who might be offended by the caricatures that he was about to should them to them and he said they could leave the room if they wanted to. But nevertheless, all of this prompted complaints from some of the parents of Muslim children in that class and as the issue drew more and more attention, the schools thought had receiving threatening phone calls and the father of one particular schoolgirl is reported to launched an appeal on line calling for action to be taken against similar petty. We'll all the while these school offered its full support, the teacher and tried to engage in dialogue with the parents who complained. And then on Friday this eighteen year old attack came to the school asking the people to point out the teacher in question which they did, and he then killed him. So. Does been shocking sequence of events has been disbelief at the barbarism of this crime, and the fact that someone should have been beheaded for raising the issue of freedom of expression, which is such a core tenet of what it means to be.

What is Russia really doing in Libya?
"During the twenty years that Vladimir Putin has presided over Russia it is fair to say that the acquisition of a Nobel prize for peace has seemed low on his list of priorities on Putin's watch. Russia has attacked Chechnya invaded Georgia Georgia and Ukraine and intervene in Syria to say nothing of lower level semi deniable operations. Where in Libya would have had reason to regard? Russia's offered to serve as a mediator in its ongoing civil war with an amount of suspicion and Libya might also have recognized however that the Western world has long preferred to regard the Libyan conflict from the other end of a barge pole and that as such they were somewhat stock options accordingly earlier this week the two sides in Libya's war. The government of National Accord led by Prime Minister Mystifies Al Sarraj and recognized by the United Nations and the so-called Libyan national army commanded by renegade general Khalifa after met in Moscow. Go at which a footnote. It's not entirely clear whether or not al Sarraj and actually shook hands at this encounter. These discussions Russians were what is known as proximity talks a common enough diplomatic set piece in which the parties to a dispute agreed together more or less in the same place at the same time and relaying messages to each other via intermediaries in this instance. Those intermediaries were Russia.

Russia has waged two wars air to put down separatist movements right now, a Kremlin-backed governor rules Chechnya and with an iron fist. We're talking about it today because a court there has sentenced Chechen human rights activists or you have to four years. In a penal colony for possessing get this a bag of weed. Rachel Denver is based in Moscow with Human Rights Watch. She's deputy director of the European central Asia division. Let's start with a man who is he. And why does he matter are you has been working on human rights since two thousand and one and he's been trying to get to the bottom of things like forced to appear Ince's torture secret. Attention secret executions against people by local authorities, and he was kind of like less, man. Stan. Right. And have does is work in Chechnya. What does the political backdrop in Chechnya for the work? He's been up to for the past ten years. The governor of Chechnya Rams on Qadeer has had pretty much free. Rein to silence dissent. Any kind of non-conformism to silence any kind of criticism of his rule and the deeper backdrop is that he became governor. After two brutal wars that took place in Chechnya in the ninety s so too has been sentenced to four years. In a penal colony for possession of marijuana you're in Chechnya for the closing arguments of his trial. What was the evidence against him the evidence against him included some tainted very tainted evidence bag of marijuana. The police very clearly obviously planted in his car. That they had done that because the evidence was tampered quiz. It was clear that the bag had been tampered with between the time. It was magically founded his car and the time that it arrives for forensic analysis one of the bags. It was in with missing scotch tape magically appeared on it and magically had his hair underneath that. It's obvious. Also because all the cameras the security cameras at on the territory of the Senate. Of the police station were magically disabled between nine AM and one PM on the day that he was arrested, and that's actually a Kitaen because of the defense theory of the case, which would have been supported if there had been thrillers tapes, magically, they all went missing in terms of judicial process there were some questionable things in the trial. Yes, I think the most questionable thing of the trial was the judge dismissed just about every single defense motion that questioned the validity of the state's evidence against him and dismissed every defense almost every defense notion that would have shown why is innocent did to have a lawyer who was genuinely able to represent him the team of lawyers to t- of had in court was a terrific team of lawyers. The problem is that the seven hours after his arrest. He had no access to a lawyer because he was being kept at the police station secretly the police denied that. He was at the police station. We want a lawyer showed up to defend him. The police told him to go away. Are you tear was not there? Rachel a lot of western governments. Have been watching the case why is it so important to to use cases extremely important because this is someone who's been doing human rights work for seventeen years. It's also very important because memorial the organisation, he works for that was the last organization that could still operate inside Chechnya, and to tear was the last person who could within Chechnya still work on these sensitive cases involving say secret detention, torture and things like that. Where is to t- of serve out his sentence. And is there any chance he'll be released before his four year sentence has been served to cheer for serve his sentence. And something that's called a penal settlement colony which is something lighter than a minimum security facilities there, no prison cells. You're not behind bars, you're confined within a certain territory, and he can go home two days per month. So it's a fairly mild custodial situation, he will be eligible for parole in about a month because it can start requesting parole after one third of your term is already, sir. He was sentenced to four years, but he's been behind bars already for fourteen months in pre-trial custody. Rachel Denver in Moscow with Human Rights Watch. Thank you very much for your time.

It's just a story that we need to know about. Okay. I'm sure people have heard that Chechnya is kind of a mess, especially for the LGBT community at the moment. There. Dictator control-freak asshole running the country who apparently was like putting powered by Putin. Yeah. And really legitimately was given one hundred percent control over Chechnya. They are cracking down even harder on the community and ratcheting up the. What do you call it? Assault on the gay community. They are calling for actually they're ordering families to kill their LGBT family members. Well, that just that just cuts down on the backlog of his people if the families do the dirty work than his people don't have to go out and round them up. So that's I mean, that's just good economics efficient, I suppose. But also strangely. The police are also demanding that families pay ransom to get their LGBT people family members out of jail, so they can kill. They can kill them. I if he's promised to kill them. Can you get them back for free? I don't think. So I think they want your money, and then you have to do the dirty work and while anyway, I mean, how many people are actually going out and killing their LGBT Q family members. I don't know hopefully a lot because if nothing else if you are gay in Chechnya. You know that this is a possibility you're not gonna tell your family. I mean at this point. I would say that's probably true for people who are coming to terms with their own sexuality. I in a moment of non. Death just for being gay. They people may have been the cats ready out of the back for a lot of these a lot of these people. That's true. So. Let's see where was I going? Oh, Chechnen Chechen leaders and Chechen authorities. I guess are denying but this is happening. They're saying that these are complete lies, and they don't have an ounce of truth in them, even though international watchdog in a system and LGBT gays system. LGBT assistance groups are. Are receiving tons of reports, of course about this. Of course, they do the these guys have been doing this for a minute now. So this is the Chechen minister of national policy Zomba lot Merav. He says he referred to the present detention, torture and death allegations as quote fantasy and nonsense whom added considering the fact that gay people have sick imagination to start from. But they can write some nonsense like that. You know, those disgusting perverts we would never do anything to harm them. But there's so so gross hideous. Who that that? Of course, they would come up with something was this. But here's here's what Chechnya's doing the. I never understand.

And they're just people in desperate desperate need living in places where their own communities sort of don't care either way, I have turned on them for fear of them also being tortured. Absolutely, correct. And what this is also very much. This is not just a gay man's issue. Or a by man's issue. Are trans persons issue. They are especially targeting lesbians. Specifically, they are really going after queer women in this crackdown. The torture that they are being put through is not even something I wanna talk about its horrific. It's electric shock. It's all sorts of crazy insertion, it's animal behavior. It's animal behavior. They are pudding before they kill them and to humiliate them. They are shaving men's heads and making them wear dresses. It's it's really just horrifying. And it's happening. It's on the rise to around ups literally when you hear the word round up. You know, something bad is happening. What is the U N doing about it? I don't think much right now. I don't think much. They're still investigating it for a long time. It was like is this really happening or is this just one person you better fucking be on it. But the torture air is getting more and more violence, and it's getting more and more cruel. A and they don't want survivor told pink news. They don't feed us who escaped they didn't feed us. They gave us some water, which was usually the dirty water left after mopping. Yeah.

Roms on Katter off who is the leader of Chechnya that the Kremlin approved of completely denies this out. And also, though has denied that there any LGBT people living in Chechnya remember that. Yeah. So this is really horrible. And I don't know. I guess the reason I'm bringing them both up is because. It is one thing to outright torture people, and it is humiliating and disgusting and devastating. What also leads to bad behavior and cruel behavior is your president. And your supreme court saying, you should be banned from something that you are less than fit to serve for something. It is a slippery slope. Yeah. I have a question, and I hate to put this all on Tim cook. But who is the CEO of apple and is gay. Is there a role was a company like that who is LGBTQ run or friendly or whatever? Right. A major corporation who can pull out like you would think. So you know, what I mean like if they're doing if they have human rights abuses, like then there has to be some sort of like moral judgment when it comes to doing business with them as far as the business community's concern. I don't know what I actually don't know what apple presence is or any of these tech companies presences in Russia, right? Or in for them at our in Chechnya soon assume apple is involved in Russia. You haven't imagine. Yeah. This is how I feel about every fucking billionaire in this country. Why is there a homeless problem? Why is there a hunger? Problem you have to solve it. Like now, do it use your money for something. Good. And by the way, if you don't wanna get taxed if that's your whole fucking thing that you'll go through every fucking loophole.

So Imke made this story made news because Imke was asked a question by sports reporter about if she might wear a siren on her head. So the players could hear her coming and put on pants before she entered the locker room who has this a reporter. And then she said, and by the way, pr- preference here.

I mean, this is the they were all saying, oh, it's a foundational part of my belief system that gay gay marriage is wrong a few years ago. And as soon as the polls crossed the right way. And now it's favored by the American people there, everyone who doesn't believe as they do is immoral and homophobic, like none of these positions are actually their positions. They're just saying whatever benefits them at the moment. So I listened to Andrew Heaton on Friday and his podcast with this guy. This author scientists that did a study on how we are not more polarized as a nation. We think we are. But we're actually not more polarized. He said, we're just better sorted. And that's why you see the independence growing. They're more independence, and there are Democrats or Republicans. So it's just that. We're more sorted and most people. They are not all one hundred and they're just not ideologues. That are like I believe in everything that that democrat says I believe in everything that Republican says they they're not like that. And what happens is when we get to the election. We're forced into one of these two things, you know, it's either a or b eight or be choose or I blow your head off. And so Americans have to go that way. But what's happened? Is it started in congress to wear congress became because of this the districts, they became so radicalized? And then the party said you have to believe this or you're out. And so it's really not changed. What's changed is? We're better sorted. Now.
