"What is up my Friends? I hope you're doing great out there. Today, winter is in the air. It's getting chilly out here. We are sub freezing here in prescot Arizona at 5500 feet. And just loving it. It is that time of year when all the Christmas lights are going up, our Christmas tree is already up and Christmas carols. Pretty much 24/7. In our House in our office. So I'm feeling it. I'm feeling it. I'm really excited to bring you guys a four part series starting today. And the title of this is getting tactical, a transformation case study, and this is part one of four. And in this part one episode, we are featuring the transformation of one of our black belt coaches. His humble beginnings and how he was able to utilize some of the tactics and strategies and teachings inside the elite practice mastermind group to experience exponential growth. And when I say exponential growth, I'm talking 500 plus percent growth over three year period of time, just a miraculous transformation. So it's always fun to go back and talk about doctor X one of our TSI real life DSI black belt coaches. In this particular part one episode, we're going to be talking about how to gamify dental analytics and overhead and cash flow. How to turn non producers into producers, the best way for calculating cost per procedure. And fixed in variable expenses and how to control and differentiate them. So I hope you guys get a ton of value from this part one episode. Part one part two part three and part four all chock full of great tactical tips that you could immediately implement into your offices. So give it a listen. Let me know what you think and have a wonderful day. Take care of my friends. Bye bye. So silo number one, fixed and variable expenses. So we're going to be looking at profit and loss, balance sheets and our scorecard that we use inside DSI. The scorecard is nothing more than a gamified version of a P and L. It's a very user friendly P and L, easy to read, all the information that you need about a P and L is on one flat piece of paper. And we also superimpose the balance sheet over the top of that. So we're looking at spendable cash as you put your long-term debt superimposed over what the actual profit is in your dental practice. And I'll show you guys that in a second here. We're also looking at cost per procedure. I often joke that McDonald's knows how much a pickle wedge costs and how much a sesame seed cost. Yet you ask a dentist how much does it cost to produce your production? How much does it cost for you to produce that crown? Not just the lab V, not just the Latvia and the assistant, but how about everything else? How about all the disposables that went into that procedure? How about the rent? How much did it cost to heat and cool that room for the amount of time that you were in there? How about the support staff? How about the actual physical cost broken down for that space in comparison to the rest of the building during that 45 or an hour and a half period of time? You have to be able to calculate your cost per procedure and you have to intimately know what your cost per procedure is and how much it costs to produce your production. Very, very important. Silo number two, advanced tracking, advanced ab tracking and analytics and analysis. I'm sorry. And number three, departmental data, turning non producers into producers. Okay, so how do you turn a non producer into a producer? Well, we know that for associate doctors and our personal production, we know how to increase the production on that. We increase same day treatment. We increase our case presentation acceptance. We increase our clinical suite, the number of procedures that we keep in house, we increase the number of procedures that we can actually get done in a day. We increase the amount of money that we're charging for different procedures. There's lots of different ways for us as producers to increase our production. But how do we turn non producers into actual producers? How do you take a front office person and turn that person into a producer? How do you take a sterile tech or a back office person or a treatment coordinator or even an office manager and turn them into producers? We'll talk about that. Front office back office, hygiene, billing department, marketing department. Okay, so here's just a few. I mean, I just grabbed a few. There's some fixed and variable expenses and we'll go over every single one. On Monday. But here are just a few of the bigger fix and variable expenses that we like to track. The first is payroll. We like to see between 25 and 30%. If you're a phase one practice, and we'll go over the phases here in a second. If you're a phase one practice, we allow you to be at 30% of your total overall overhead can be allocated

"That then. So they could use the U.S. dollars to help fund this war in Ukraine by doing this. Sure, that's one of the things another thing they can do is they can be bribing people all over the world. I mean, they're trying to wreck other countries democracies. They could be there could be a lot of people in European governments and in the United States government, a lot of people could be secretly working for the Russians and they could be getting paid through that correspondent account. Wow. Okay, so there could be all sorts of other things going on. This is treason at the highest levels if that's going on here. Sure. And this is certain things are very easy to investigate, but nobody will. The fact that the ebd is investment in that bank is very easy to investigate. It's actually written into eurostat reports and eurostat is the official statistics source for the European Union. It's written into that. So the Latvian government won't talk about it. Actually, the Latvian government has gone one step worse. They've designated the secretly reversible privatizations as national secrets or state secrets. As if they were about national defense. So wait a minute. So that development bank small Latvian or that small bank is considered a state secret. So whatever John Kerry is doing in the country, that's considered state secrets. Yes, and if a journalist publishes it in Latvia, he can be a prosecuted and imprisoned, just like if he gave away where the military radars are or something, it's being now it's not really about the military. It's about Latvia trying to hide what it's real national debt is. That's part of it. And that's not supposed to be a state secret. I mean, if you're issuing bonds, you're supposed to say what your real national debt is. But Latvia is saying that it wants to issue bonds, but it doesn't want to tell anybody the truth about what the national debt is. And for some reason, these people carry and Collins and this institution, the EBR D are helping Latvia to falsify its national debt.

"From Belarus there are Russian armies descending in drones. Latvia's ambassador to Belarus. Do not says Putin's objectives go much further than just a couple of countries. We will face very long controversy between era Atlantic community and Russia. So a part of the reason why these countries are so focused on what Russia is doing in Ukraine is because they think that these may be trial runs or test balloons for things Russia might try to do to them later on. Reporting live, JJ green, WTO news. JJ, there is widespread doubt that Russia really is going to do anything nuclear, but if that is the case, why then are Western countries continually talking about Russia's nuclear threats? So remember when the war was about to start everything that Russia was about to do intelligence agencies were picking up their plans and putting it all out there in the media. And that was so that people would know about what Russia was doing. Russia was talking about Ukraine in the beginning was going to attack its own people in the north and maybe attack its own people in other locations across the south. But in reality, Russia was planning to do that itself. So what they were doing was trying to get people to think through its disinformation that Ukraine was going to do it. Then they were going to blame Ukraine for doing that essentially saying they were attacking Russian or at least people who were aligned with Russia and used that as a provocation to attack Ukraine. That's the same thing that's been going on with this nuclear threat and this threat to blow up this dam. The intelligence communities from the countries around the world have been putting this information out there so people know what Russia is up to, what they're trying to do so that they won't be fooled by anything Russia might try to do later on. Alrighty, thank you so much, JJ. You're welcome. National security correspondent JJ green.

"This is WTO news, 7 52. Now to the war in Ukraine, defense secretary Lloyd Austin has spoken by phone with his Russian counterpart for the first time since May. The Pentagon provided few details about the phone call. It was something that the secretary initiated, it was an opportunity to have a call with minister shoigu. We welcome maintaining an open line of communication, dialog is good here. Deputy Pentagon press secretary Sabrina Singh, the Russian defense ministry offered little more, saying issues of international security, including the situation in Ukraine, were discussed. That is CBS News correspondent cami McCormick. Well, it appears the mood toward the war in Ukraine has shifted. National security correspondent JJ green is in Latvia this weekend with a lot of global security leaders JJ tells us what he's learned from speaking with them. People here in this region are expecting this not to end soon. That doesn't mean Ukraine will lose this war, but what they're simply saying is they just might not win it either. It might just be a long, really difficult bloody war. They're also saying this in part because they still have doubts about whether the west is totally committed to a long-term war. Then there's this question about who is pulling the strings in Russia and what will happen if that leadership for some reason changes. Will it get better or would it be worse? WTO's national security correspondent JJ green in Riga Latvia. The Civil War and slavery can feel very far away, but it's not as distant as you may believe. One of the country's last living children of enslaved Americans has died in D.C. and he's leaving behind hope for the future despite the horrors of history. We survived the ships. Born in the 1930s, Daniel Smith was the son of a former slave owned by a white man in Virginia. Father said you could hear him screaming and crying. Thinking back to the lynchings and whipping posts, Daniel told CBS mornings, a life of bondage didn't hold his father back from wanting more for his children. Daniel became a civil rights activist. He was at the March on Washington. I have a dream. Well, I was saying, yes. He fought for voting rights and would eventually vote for Barack Obama. Couldn't believe I was doing this. Black man.

"Today and schedule your free in home estimate. It's 8 11 now, National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said yesterday Iran has sent a relatively small number of personnel to Crimea to help Russian troops use Iranian made drones against Ukraine. For the latest on the situation in Ukraine, now let's check live with WTO's national security correspondent JJ green, who joins us from Latvia this morning, JJ, you're at a big security conference there in Latvia in Eastern Europe. Here in the U.S., we see the war in broad terms, but you've learned some eye opening nuances about some of the complications of the war. Yeah, Bruce, some of the complications are basically the details that are basically buried in trying to bring this region together to help you claim. Ukraine and Georgia are not getting along right now. Georgia, whose faced similar kinds of activities from Russia, albeit not to this degree, have not been doing a lot to help Ukraine right now. Their borders are still open. And they haven't renounced Russia's actions, which most other states in this region have renounced his terrorists. Georgia has not gone along with it. And it's coming out in the open here at the security conference in Latvia. So we see this in broad terms and we see that seems like the world is rallying around Ukraine, but they have some very difficult issues to overcome right here in their own neighborhood. Ukrainian officials have been saying that they're concerned Russia may be planning to blow up a dam in the southern part of the country. What are you hearing about that and what would the significance of that be? Well, we're hearing a lot about that, Nick, and there are reports that Russian troops may try to blow up a key hydroelectric dam. And if they do that, it would unleash a devastating flood that would inundate homes, the landscape, critical infrastructure, and it could kill many many, many people and needless to say, obviously a lot of people would be displaced and homeless again. And so what we're hearing is that they actually planning a provocation using their disinformation network to try to blame Ukraine for it. And the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense spokesman said to me this morning, these are the actions of simply diabolical people because there's just no tactical military reason to do this. Just hatred of Ukrainians. Oh, boy. JJ, thank you. I appreciate it this morning. WTO's national security correspondent JJ green joining us live from Latvia.

"Be needed. Ukrainians are being asked to reduce their power usage, there could be rolling blackouts. Now there's growing concern about Ukraine's supply routes. An army general there is warning that Russian forces are likely to launch an attack from neighboring Belarus to cut off weapons and military equipment from the west. That was CBS correspondent Kimmy McCormick. Meantime, Russia's NATO neighbors are carefully watching to avoid being blindsided. Our national security correspondent JJ green reports from Latvia. There is a lot of hand wringing and nail biting across broader Eastern Europe because of what's perceived as Russia's desperation, attacking Ukraine with Iranian drones and missiles have made a bad situation worse. And here, next door in Latvia, which borders both an increasingly aggressive Russia and its silent partner Belarus, they're moving full speed ahead to secure their borders and working with NATO to make sure that if either tries anything, they'll be ready for it. But perhaps the most important thing they are doing is being that voice in western leaders ears, warning that Russia's after a lot more than just Ukraine. In Riga, Latvia, JJ green, WTO news.

"Here in London at 1223, I'm packing my musical bags because Fernando goes to Pacheco is here to take me on a global countdown trip. How are you Faye? I'm very good. Did you like my knowledge of Latvian Emma? I did. That's hello. You never fail to impress me and surprise me with what you can do and I can also say that you're looking resplendent in electric blue velvet. It's the perfect shirt for a global countdown, I would say. If ever there were a need to define a perfect shirt for a global countdown, then I think you've nailed that one. We're going to Latvia today, which is obviously wonderful, but it's quite politically complicated today. Isn't it? Because we have Latvia for those of us who need a bit of a pepper on our geography, Latvia's eastern border borders, Russia. Latvian southern border, borders, Belarus. So it's all a little bit interesting in terms of cultural identities and who we're cheering for and who we're allowing to talk about and who we become. Absolutely. And I think it's quite interesting because yes, as you said, we will be listening from some Russian artists, but not everyone is the same. There are, we are going to discuss this. Some artists are very much anti putting orders, decided to be silent. So I think every single there's something behind it, so I agree with you. It is kind of a very difficult times, but it's interesting to see what's reflected on the charts because we shouldn't forget before the war. Russian music, especially in those bordering countries, there used to be very popular. Not only Latvia, but Ukraine. And I was interested to see the reaction of some of those artists as well. But I bet you didn't think this when you launched the global countdown a couple of years ago. It is about geopolitics as well in some ways. But I think a number 5 will start very gently. Stay in Latvia. Yeah, let's think Latvia. Yeah. That must confess I've had to listen to all of the tracks today. I'm not entirely sure how many of them I'm going to rush out and buy at the end of it, but then again, that's not part of this, is this. Okay, number 5, let's go. Let's go.

The Significance of Giorgia Meloni’s Big Win in Italy

"Italy has had a free and fair election and the result is a big win for the right-wing or Conservative Party. And it's actually a coalition party. But the leading member of that coalition is a group called Friends of the fraternal order of Italy or Friends of Italy. And fraternal brothers of Italy and its leader is Georgia maloney, who will become the next Italian prime minister. Now, there might have been some leftists in this country. I mean, they were, they were warning against this result, and they might have been hoping that it just as here in 2020 you'd get like later results that would pivot away from maloney and give the election to the left. But unfortunately for these leftists here in America, Italy has voter ID. And also the only mules that you find in Italy are four legged ones. They eat grass. So this wasn't honest election. And now the left is dismayed at the outcome, and there's also a lot of screaming about the outcome at the EU. Why? Because at the European Union, they can see that this is a trend that is beginning to sweep across Europe. In the beginning, the trend was only in Eastern Europe and you may say at the periphery of Europe. So Hungary, for example, pivoted in a right wing direction Victor Orban, Latvia, Poland, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia. And so the EU said, well, the mainstream countries in Europe aren't going that way. France is okay. Even though we've got le pen, Germany is okay. England is okay. And Italy is okay in Spain is okay, but now Italy, one of one of the countries, in fact, sometimes described as the beating heart of Europe. Italy has decided to also pivot sharply to the right.

Who Was Mikhail Gorbachev?

"Yesterday, Mikhail Gorbachev passed away. Now for many young people out there, they have no idea who Gorbachev is. In fact, I was talking to some young people recently. I said, oh, you know, tell me about the Soviet Union never heard of the Soviet Union. In high school, never heard of the Soviet Union. They don't learn that stuff in school anymore. Now Gorbachev was a very special leader. Gorbachev by all estimates was ethical and full of integrity. In a country that was basically run by thugs and criminals and was nothing more than a massive cartel enterprise. Now Gorbachev was met with a fair amount of anti Soviet Union protests and he was one of the first people not to crack down on the anti communist anti totalitarian protest with force. Now, Gorbachev is not totally beloved in Eastern Europe. He's not. In fact, Vladimir Putin has said many times that one of the greatest mistakes that Russia ever made was the dissolution of the Soviet Union, brokered by Gorbachev. Gorbachev ended the Cold War. And yes, Gorbachev was outmaneuvered and out strategized by Reagan, but he was always inclined towards peace. Gorbachev was probably too good of a person to run the Soviet Union. And he did bring a lot of he brought a movement of sovereignty of in Estonia and Lithuania and Latvia in the Balkan Peninsula. The Soviet union was a far reaching totalitarian communist blanket over the eastern part of Europe and a lot of that has broken up and Russia is doing their best job to try to recreate that. Albeit very difficult and clumsily and at a very, very high cost.

What Is NATO?

"What is NATO? NATO is the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. NATO was formed post World War II, and it was formed with the idea of trying to hedge against the Soviet Union. Now there are some good reasons for that in the Soviet Union was an evil empire in more ways than one. Albeit, I don't think we're quite honest with some of our relationship with the Soviet Union. We did partner with the Soviet Union to defeat the Nazis. After that there was this mad dash of who will control Europe and NATO was formed. NATO has 30 member countries. These countries, Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia Lithuania, Luxembourg, Montenegro, the Netherlands, North Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, turkey, which I never quite understood. United Kingdom and the United States. These are 30 independent member countries. And there is what is called article 6.

They call it transition, as I told you yesterday, the R word is out, and this is the kind of rhetoric we got from our lawmakers, members of Congress on Capitol Hill, take a listen. Of course, during the crises that we had, we had to do certain things, you know, stimulus and other things to make sure that we kept our economy stable. Without doing those things, we would have been in trouble. So the things that we did, going through COVID, the stimulus, trying to make sure people kept their jobs or kept money coming in at the time was what we had to do, otherwise we would have been in worse shape or not have a strong economy because we have now compared to other countries. Is that not correct? Yes, I would say this way that our inflation is a consequence of very strong demand in part driven by supply by what Congress did to support activity in part driven, but also. But that helps stabilize our economy at that time, right? It did. And if we did not do those things, our economy may not be as strong as it is right now. That's right. That's correct. All right. So strong. You see, you see where this is going. He's going to get himself in trouble there, because the whole idea is we're going to lead you up to this. You have to say, not our fault, not our fault. And then Jerome Powell, our fed chairman, kind of goof, because he said yes, you know, I'd agree actually that part of the inflation we have now is because of what Congress

"Now Hey Maria Yes Jonathan And we're now joined by Latvia's defense minister Is who of course he's one of the most outspoken ministers I would say in the European Union when it comes to defense sir you were telling me off camera Europe really needs a reality check We need to be much more forceful on Russia When you say that what do you mean I would like to say that the job is half done Because yes we reacted in quite a unitary form as far as the sanctions towards Russia And also as far as the military and cumulative assistance to Ukraine but now we are only in the third force week of this aggression from Russian side And job is half done because there are still companies in Russia which are functioning for different types of reasons then a Spanish Europe itself I think we have to go complete with conclusion of this deep Putin of the societies where the corrupt oligarchic auto retiring Russian people have been really very deeply rooted now in these societies And this has to be done And as far as military and other support to Ukraine I would say that maybe it sounds it's the beginning very kind of even dangerous approach but I think we should consider to reverse this very early escape of number of our embassies from Kyiv because country needs to support Ukraine need to support And answer when you say deeper tonight I wonder what do you mean by that And if it means what I think it means many Europe say that's very provocative but you say Europe should not be scared of being provocative when it comes to Russia So how do you go about that Well first of all Kremlin thinking about provocation is very simple If there will be willing to do they will always find an excuse to tell that this was a provocation So that's not important I think we simply should listen to the eyes of Kremlin leaders and say now you committed the crime you committed aggression Now we will act And there is nothing provocative by simply telling look you have been by corruptive or other means buying these villas buying these properties and you are now waging an aggressive war just like Hitler's Germany against the neighboring country but at the same time you still want to enjoy a great life in the west which you despise This is not possible And of course I want to ask you one thing You say deeper than I say a lot of this is almost like Hitler after Nazi Germany Your country has a history with Russia of course is not a secret that you were a part of the Soviet Union I wonder when you look at what's happening is this Vladimir Putin being a madman or is this someone who has made very clear over 20 years My idea is to restore the USSR because it's great enough for Russia that I'm after In many ways we have been warning already for almost 20 years So he's not a madman This is a plank What is his state of mind personally At this moment it's difficult to say because we don't know the information from the first hand And of course he is kind of confused because he was obviously not thinking that this type of war will not succeed But at the same time we still have to act in a way that we force all the Russian society also to rethink its stance And I think it's included also very much of information sphere and all the possibility to break this bubble of information which Kremlin is using for their own population And Serge is two very brief questions There's a real debate about what to do with energy imports It is becoming clear that your sanctions and you said this is going to be the mother of all sanctions But they're not for Russia They continue to meet payments in dollars Is it time to step it up and target energy Well first of all we have to get out all the western companies from Russia It's a model duty to leave this country now As far as energy of course if the country have been on the gas or oil needle for 20 or 30 years it's difficult to do it in one day but imagine the situation what if the Ukraine invaded by Russia would be European Union invaded would be still going to the war and bypass So it's a mistake So when Germany says the reality is we can't unplug You're thinking as a Germany is wrong You can't do it Well it's probably very difficult to do it immediately but let's put it like this to be rational at the same time We probably have to be hyperactive and very fast to collect as fast as we can Really as fast as we can and not to think about returning to this anymore So you say after this is a point of no return essentially it's isolation for Russia but when it comes to Ukraine there's many out there who believe at this point this is a hell of awards 26 days It's been brutal on the Ukrainian population just negotiating a ceasefire and get on with it What's your take on that Ceasefire is not a very out as a way out is immediate withdrawal of all the Russian troops from Ukrainian territory There is no other way out And I would say that Ukrainians by their blood paid also for the membership in European Union So I understand you cry Ukraine can not become a member today tomorrow but there must be a certain fast track established along with the way how we will pay because we would have to pay for the reconstruction of this country So I believe that 5 years that would be the limit put also in our planning when we if everything goes occasion accept this country as a member country And over the weekend we saw the Russians say you have to surrender maruba We also saw them bringing out the big weapons of the hypersonic missiles When you look at the situation on the ground do you really believe seriously looking to your heart that Ukraine can win this war You can already won this war Yes there will be more sacrifices but even if Mario falls even if skill falls which I don't think will happen is a struggle to continue because these people have nowhere to retreat And in fact I must say also our particular Western European France and sisters and brothers Also we have nowhere to retreat This is a way where we have to stand and keep the line because we have been retreating on the front of this aggressor and dictator for too long And that was all huge mistake And just as a final question I know you have communications with the Ukrainian government When you hear from.

The Case Against a No Fly Zone in Ukraine

"Well, article 5 of NATO basically says an attack on one member is an attack on all. For instance, if Putin rolled into Estonia Lithuania or Latvia, that would be an article 5 violation United States would be at war pursuant to treaty. We don't have Ukraine as famously not a NATO nation. We don't have an article 5 issue there. But if we ran a no fly zone, there is a very real chance we would be engaged in combat against Russian forces. That is the conventional war that you and I early in our careers grew up to fight. That's very frightening to me. Is there a lot of pressure we've heard some people talk about? And I think loosely about a no fly zone. We only have about 15, 20 seconds left. Is there a push such that we're likely to see a no fly zone? Depending on circumstances right now, no, but you have to be ready.

"He is the founder of the president of one of the most influential and important organizations in America turning point USA taking back our nation one high school one college campus at a time. Charlie, welcome. Doctor gorka great to be here. Thank you. So we had a kind of two minute grad school session in the break about my take on what's happening in Ukraine. I'm going to take my life in my hands and get your opinion about what should happen. You asked me what we should do. I'm actually just curious. I'm not an expert in that part of my advice that I doubt the senile old man in The White House will take, but if 1776 in masses, guess what? Ukrainians are also made in the image of God and they should be fighting. We should support them in their fight for liberty, not deploy the 82nd airborne, not our job. But NATO should be providing lethal assistance, meaning weapons and ammunitions to Ukraine so they can fight for themselves instead of the Taliban. Second thing NATO could do because of the PLS intelligence capability we have is provide intelligence to Ukraine on how to hurt Russia the most. So the next country invaded is a Poland or the LAT or Latvia or Lithuania. That's my concrete certificate advice. So I'm so busy running all over this place and I'm not like caught up to date. So I saw the map you showed me. What is the latest? I think your listeners would be interested to hear this. It seems like a full fledged invasion. So most commentators were expecting a small incremental increase beyond donets in Luhansk in the east. That's not what happened. For some reason, this man has gone totally for a full bore invasion, strategic bombers, strike attack aircraft taking out Ukrainian runways, even this shows you that the dementia of the cycle that's running the Kremlin. He has taken Chernobyl, which I understand is a Soviet symbol, but it's also a radioactive hunk of concrete. So capturing Chernobyl is not exactly strategic. It's kind of mythical, but it's not strategic. So no, this is a full scale

It is the most, it is so cockamamie. And by the way, people like people who respect hold that view. You know, they're not defending they're not defending Putin. Latvia should be paranoid, Lithuania, Estonia. Hungary. Poland. And if you want me to go damage in Europe, believe me, I can. I traveled to so many times from north to south and south to north.

K. T. McFarland: Russia Has a Lot of Blackmail Power Over Europe

"Not unlike vindman, you've been in the room where it happens. You were there talking about policy and national security issues with the president. Give me your takeaway, your reaction to what you just heard. Well, there was a reason that vindman, I tried to get them and fired when he was on my staff on the NSC. But in any event, I think that we need to take a step back and figure out why was Putin enabled to do this. There were decisions made at the beginning of the Biden administration to shut down the American energy industry. Oil natural gas. It did a couple of things. Number one, it meant that the price of energy went way high. It doubled in price of oil doubles. That made Russia rich again. The other thing it did though was make it very clear to Europe, which depends on Russian energy oil and natural gas for 50% of its energy needs. Russia then got a lot of blackmail power over Europe. So where we are now is that Vladimir Putin is rich and he's got political leverage over Europe and that's what he's exploiting. Now I'm not going to get in the blame game of who says what who says it's less facts that matter. So Putin is facts that matter. He's got money. He's been able to rebuild his military. He's been able to use the political leverage he has over Germany and France and Italy. And all the countries which depend on Russian energy and that's why I'm worried that Putin's next move is going to be at NATO countries. Ukraine is not a member of NATO, but at NATO countries. And then they'll be the decision point. Countries be honoring their NATO commitment to Estonia Latvia and Lithuania, for example, the three politics case or will they be cow towering to Vladimir Putin's blackmail as energy blackmail. That's why it's so important for the United States to turn back on our energy and we supply the energy to Europe, not Russia. It's unreal

"For more from the Baltics I'm joined now from Riga by doctor artis public's the current minister of defense and deputy prime minister of Latvia. Doctor fabrick, let's start with the current position slash predicament. As you look towards Ukraine, are you worried that at some point Latvia might find itself in a similar position? Well, not in the similar position I hope not because as you mentioned, we are members of NATO and we are members of European Union and it looks different here than in Ukraine. But we have the same, I would say aggressive and I would call it a revolutionist neighbor already for a very long time. And we assume here that if Ukraine falls, then the pressure towards all borders towards our societies and towards our country slowly increase. And you know, we simply don't want to take chances and challenges, so this is why we are standing so firm by Ukrainians because even if they are not in our alliance, we consider them our allies in many ways they are doing our job. They are holding away as a pressure. How alert do you have to be though in Latvia for signs of Russian meddling within Latvia? Is there a large scale campaign by Russia to undermine Latvia? In many ways, being a border country, we are used to certain activities of Russians regarding of strategic communication, different types of fake news and lives. From time to time cyber attacks, from that perspective, we do not lose our guard and sense latest military exercises. It's our border in September. We have been on a kind of higher readiness level because those exercises in a time span, they overlapped also with hybrid migrant attacks, organized by Belarusian government. And here I should put a footnote if I may say so we consider that Belarus ceased to exist as an independent country, at least militarily, so most of the things we assume are still organized by Russia. So in general, since the changes in Belarus is the perspective of kind of unexpected attack on the Baltic region, simply increases because the operational time is going down now very much..

"Secretary 94. of State Anthony blinken is visiting Europe this week with the frantic effort. To deter a Russian invasion of Ukraine and we hope he succeeds. But the administration is also signaling that an invasion is likely and if so, it's worth explaining. Why deterrence will have failed. The fort lies mainly with Vladimir Putin on his desire to restore greater Russia. Yes, that's pretty important to understand. Putin would like to restore the Soviet Union. Or greater Russia depends on what term you use. That doesn't stop with Ukraine. While not invade Armenia, that was part of the Soviet Union. Latvia, Estonia Lithuania. I mean, they have a couple of 1 million 3 million people. In each country, or something to that effect, not 40.

You know, Anthony blinken comes in. I have very good friends with very good friends with Tony blanken and they love him. But I do think he's the smallest guy in every room. And I think that matters when you're talking about Putin and Putin is planning to invade the Ukraine. It's not like it's a secret. He got a 100,000 people there. If you wanted to turn, send some NATO trips to Ukraine. That's how you deter it. All right? So they're not doing that because they don't want to have a war with them. And if you don't have a war with them, you're not really deterring them. Unless you send Ukraine, every anti tank weapon there is, and every artillery piece and everything else that can be used to blow up Russian tanks. Because that's what's coming in. Not little green men but Russian tank. So this is not having meetings in Riga Latvia, do not do the trick. That's not going to do it. What's going to do it is serious

"I don't think they learn to thing. I don't think the Democrats learned one thing from the shellacking they suffered yesterday. Look at what has just been announced moments ago, breaking now on the Mike Gallagher show. President Biden's private sector COVID-19 vaccine mandate is going to take effect January 4th. If you work in a company with a hundred or more employees, you better be paying attention because the mandate starts January 4th, employers will need to adopt policies that either require all workers to get their final vaccine shot by January 4th or policies that allow unvaccinated workers to keep their jobs. If they submit to weekly testing and mask wearing, you imagine the government telling companies that they've got to do weekly testing or force mask wearing or force vaccines. They didn't learn a thing. Because frankly, the midterm elections and the red wave we saw, I really believe that much of the passion that came from the voters who dealt the Democrats, such as shocking devastating loss, I believe a lot of it is coming from these mandates. Don't you think a lot of people are voting against the government telling us how to live our lives and how to run our companies and what medicine to put in our body? I've been getting a lot of emails from people who have been following the Dan bongino saga over at cumulus radio. And chemos is a great company. Dan's a great broadcaster. He's a podcaster, he's a Fox News guy, former Secret Service agent. He's a firebrand, and he is in the thick of it because he is so opposed to his company's vaccine mandate. That he's not going on the air. He's willing to walk away from his radio show. And he's not doing it even for himself because he's vaccinated. He's doing it on behalf of his colleagues and the principal of standing up to a company that's making employees inject a medicine that they may not want to inject? And there's a big, you know, the mainstream media and some of the usual suspects have tried to turn this into a narrative or a story that isn't there. Radio host support Dan. There's one guy somewhere who has said one or two local hosts who, frankly, I think are trying to get some attention and criticizing Dan and claiming, you know, and people are allegedly leaking things about Dan's contract and all of that. Listen, this is kind of simple. And I admire people who have the moxie who have the guts to stand up for what they believe in at great expense to their own personal pocketbook. If Dan loses his radio show now, it's one part of what he does. And he'd land somewhere else, but that takes a lot of guts to stand up and say, you know what? I believe so strongly that a vaccine mandate is wrong. And again, he's obviously not anti vaccination. He's vaccinated. He didn't believe in the vaccine he wouldn't have gotten it. He's a cancer survivor. He's immunocompromised. He followed his doctor's advice evidently. I haven't talked to him about it. I don't know him very well. I've met him a couple of times. And I'm a fan. And if you're reading online that conservatives are turning on Dan or that's bull, nobody's turning on. Again, to quote one local guy somewhere who says Dan is trying to get out of his contract or whatever the excuse is that the local guy is using, you know, don't don't buy the narrative. It's not true. That the family. And we are sort of a fraternity. I don't know that we know, you know, it's weird.

"They would argue that graven images were also different from icons because they were not statues but rather paintings course already talked about that debate Between the east and west on they additionally pointing out that god sanctioned many icons testament such as the chair over the ark of the covenant Those that were on the tabernacle curtain the pomegranates woven on the high priest robes Shabby on the inner sanctuary of the temple card figures on the temple walls and doors the twelve braun oxen. Along with the oxen lines chairman in the symbol court and then of course the bronze serpent they also held that the ark of the covenant was a symbol of christ. I'm they further argue that they did not worship the icon gave honor to it. So the second council this council on this topic noted that That worship was to be given to christ latvia and veneration should be given to icon pro skinny who's And as we noted about those who argued that images didn't despite the whole christ those who were four icons argued that those who rejected pictures of christ. We're not taking seriously incarnation So the incarnation made a picture of god. Possible because God had become man christ was the icon Or the image in english of God and clauses one fifteen so they argued that if christ cannot be depicted he cannot have been a real man so Those were against icons undermined the true humanity of jesus and they would say that they helped you heresy of dosage which basically said exactly what it sounds like that jesus was divine but he was not truly human. You only seemed human. So they further argued that no picture could portray the nature of god as the nature of god invisible. That an image of christ is an image of the divine person. Who was in human form in the incarnation. Since jesus and his human form was god's human form the picture did not deny the divine nature of christ additionally those in favor of icons argued from the point of education and for the uneducated and they basically argue that. Since you can paint a picture with words in one's mind you can also paint icon on the wood for the same effect now. Since the reform tradition is the primary tradition against images of christ within the christian circles a brief discussion on the reformation seems appropriate. Now lutherans disagree with the reform tradition as well as the catholic tradition.

What is the Atvidaberg Sun Cannon?

"Some cannons have been around since the sixteen hundreds some of them were used on ships. The position of the sun triggered them to fire at almost exactly twelve. Pm so everyone on board would know what time it was in the seventeen hundreds. You might also have heard a son cannon in fancy park in england or france or even on a large estate where they were used to signal lunchtime in fact when son cannons were in style throughout the seventeen eighteen hundreds most of them were owned by european nobility and that how a son canon ended up in a small town in rural sweden the sun cannon in all to the body has its own tower. It's up on top of a hill and it looks like a fifteen foot tall version of a rook. That chess piece. that looks like a little castle. it's round made out of brick and there's a long narrow slot carved into the south facing side. It's been here since eighteen fifty three and it was built by the local barron and his family. The all those fats. These days it's cared for by a team of volunteers who call themselves the sun cannon club there a delightful gang of retired people who've taken responsibility for preserving the town's history but the whole organization is totally unpretentious and they're a little loosey-goosey when it comes to the foggy lor surrounding basan cannon but at least three different people including my grandmother told me this story back in the mid eighteen hundreds the barron and his wife took a trip to paris. Supposedly the baroness who was born. A commoner was terrified of boats so instead of making the relatively short trip across the baltic to mainland europe. They'd spent somewhere between two and three years. Travelling to france in a horse and carriage by finland latvia with wayne lia poland. You get the idea. I was able to verify almost none of the story. But i'm told somewhere between one and two kids were born on the way from sweden to france and when the family finally made it there and saw the sun cannon in a garden they thought would be kind of fun to have one of those to fire off parties back at home.

I do believe that. I could go back to my hometown. But only one condition that's democracy and freedom could be back to my hometown. So that's the faith that i also wanted to contain a home. Calmest teeny task for the world. I'm andrew connolly in london bellarusse to its east. The country borders russia to the west. It's poland latvia and lithuania and at those western. Borders troubles are brewing. All three of those nations are in the european union and our reporting massive increases in migrants trying to enter from belarus. The migrants come mostly from iraq and afghanistan by reports. They are not being welcomed into europe joining me to discuss this as caccia glad. She's an expert on eastern europe at the center for european policy analysis and joins us from london cut to explain the sharp increase in migrants leaving belarus. What's going on basically. We have seen this increase in migrants for the past two months on this is linked to the u. sanctions the european union imposed on their regime in belarus following the at mass protests to brutality with which this protest dispersed and also the ongoing political repression. The regime of alexander relic. Shankar is really trying to tell the you that either you stop the sanctions or we will try to create chaos on stabilized situation in your own countries so lukashenko's regime essentially bringing migrants to the border and saying to them. Go cross go to lafayette. Go to poland yes. It looks very likely that this is what the regime is doing. We don't have any official data to prove that. But they have been several investigations undertaken by journalists on. It seems to be a whole network has been set up. With involvement of the delta region state on travel agencies could have been a basically a we can save an actively recruiting people mainly from iraq so this travel agencies. They are posting ads. I guess in the iraqi media and then the belarusian embassy in iraq gives visas to these people and then these people come and they are they hosted in minsk hotels and then even they scored further to the lithuanian border announcer latvian and through the polish border. Since well look shank is trying to create these issues of contention. He hopes that's the you will either stop the sanctions against him on the regime in general. Or that's the you will stop hosting dinner delusion. Political activists cut ya. If lukashenka scheme here is to force the end of sanctions on him and his regime. Do you think this way of doing it will work no. I don't think he will. Action managed to persuade the you buy this tactic to withdraw the sanctions. And that we have seen very fan response particularly from lithuania saying that it will demand that you increase the sanctions on nought revoked. The sanctions obviously the regime in men's Hope that kind of hybrid warfare tactic might help but it certainly not helping so far. During the two months we have seen nothing that That indicates that they would be joined the science and they think of your own on the on the contrary it will increase them. We know most of these migrants from iraq from afghanistan. what does this whole. Experience with belarus and being kind of taken to the border told across and not being able to cross. What does this burden them with. After what must be a really long. Arduous journey to belarus in belarus. Hasn't been obviously nice. We hero many reports by independent journalists. About how these people are treated and they're not treated nicely particularly by delaration border patrol. The we saw many of them being trapped to into this neutral zone between the two countries being on the rain and on the other unpleasant weather conditions enduring these conditions we have seen also some not very pleasant foods about some people being a allegedly bitten off shored but we also think that these might be some fake reports that again. The regime in belarus husband trying to use this migrants to present the situation as louisiana is not treating the migrants nice. But we do know that as many of them are going back. It's obviously was not a good experience Trying to use this route of common into the youth rebel reuss. So where do you think this goes from here. Well i think that's the problem will be solved one way or another. They'll probably take some time. It won't be solved overnight. I think with the u. Transferring the more resources human and financial out to the neighboring countries will see some somma event shola resolution to the crisis is also the us together with the. Us is trying to put more pressure on the iraqi and this is where the refugees mostly comment from. I think it will be sold. Meets him in the short term. I think we'll see the regime still trying to use this as a weapon with more refugees coming from afghanistan but the thing that you will mount a comprehensive response financially and resource wise that would help to solve. The problem eventually cut eastern europe expert at the center for european policy analysis. She's based in london cardiac. Thank you very much for your time. Really appreciate it.
