"Is WTO P news. Now to the war between Ukraine and Russia, Russia will formally add X four regions of Ukraine that its troops occupy at a grand ceremony in Moscow plan for today this Friday. But Ukraine and the international community overall are not accepting the results here. This morning WTO national security correspondent JJ green with more on Russia's claims and its missteps here. The Russian government is moving ahead with this ceremony and claims that it will use nuclear weapons to protect its so called ownership of these territories, both the threats from Russian officials have not deterred a sweeping Ukrainian counteroffensive that's continuing to push back Russian troops in the east and its edging ever closer in the Donetsk region to the city of Lyman. That's Moscow's central force or central base where forces, they've been battering it for a while trying to fully capture that area. Ukraine can not and will not tolerate any attempts by Russia to seize any part of our land. That's a statement from Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky. The four territories cursed on Zappa region in the south Donetsk and Hans in the east. They create a crucial land corridor between Russia and the Crimean Peninsula. So this is crucial for Russia. It's even more crucial for Ukraine and Ukraine at this point says they will not stop fighting to take that territory back. And JJ, we're learning that there are more leaks to the Nord stream pipeline popping up and of course that is one of the major natural gas pipelines in Europe, sabotage is believed to be behind it and we see some mounting evidence that maybe Russia is behind all this. What have you learned? Earlier this month, a commercial popped up on pro Kremlin, social media sites. This was around the fourth of the 5th of September. Song lyrics in this commercial said winter will be big only twilight and snow. In this commercial, a man wearing the uniform of Gazprom, which is Russia's national gas company, shut off the gas supply. And the pressure gauge is seen falling to zero. The footage also includes scenes showing the Nord stream to pipeline. Talking with a couple of sources from Eastern Europe and certainly some research individuals who have involved in research from that region, they believe this was connected to the Russian government and it was a part of a propaganda operation. The fourth Nord stream pipeline league popped up there has been sightings of Russian vessels in the areas near these pipelines for several weeks now. So the evidence is growing at least the belief is growing that Russia planned this, that they are actually carrying out these attacks on these pipelines and the whole objective is to try to make the rest of Europe suffer during the course of the winter.

"Bill browder. He is the founder of hermitage capital management. He's also the head of the global magnitsky justice campaign which seeks out justice and seeks to root out corruption against regimes like Russia that seem to operate with impunity both within and without their borders. So you had previously discussed how effectively the Russian government had Sergei beaten to death in their custody at this point you decide you want yuan payback. You want to make the people who did this pay tell us how the idea of the magnitsky act came about and what was it like shepherding that through Congress? After Sergei was killed, I said to myself, well, how do we get justice? And Sergey had done something unique. When he was in jail, every time they did something bad to him, he wrote a criminal complaint about who did it, what they did, where they did it, what law was violated when they did it. And that was his way of dealing with the adversity of being in jail. And so over the course of 358 days in detention, he had written 450 complaints documenting business treatment. And once a month or so, he write these complaints out once a month or so, he would hand them to his lawyer his lawyer would then file them. And we would get copies. And although none of these complaints were ever acted on because we had copies, we had the most dot well documented granular detailed firsthand account of human rights abuse that's ever come out of the Russian system. And because these were so articulately written, they made a horrifying case for the Russians like nobody could imagine that this was Russia of the years of 2009 that thought this was like 1938 during Stalin when they read these letters and complaints instead of prosecuting anybody Putin got personally involved, he may public statements that nobody had done anything wrong. The exonerated every single individual, some of the most complicit people even received state honors and promotions. And in the most unbelievable miscarriage of justice, three years after they murdered Sergei magnitsky, they put him on trial in the first ever trial against a dead man in the history of Russia. They put me on trial as his co defendant. We were both found guilty. They couldn't do anything more to surrogate than they had already done of killing him. It sends me the 9 years and then Switzerland. It became obvious that we weren't going to succeed in getting justice in Russia. So we said, well, how do we get justice outside of Russia? And this is when I came up with an idea, which is that the people who killed Sergei didn't kill him for ideological and religious reasons. They killed him for money. And the people who stole that $230 million don't keep that money in Russia because as easily as they stole it, it could be stolen from them and keep that money in America in the UK. And so it would be very difficult to prosecute somebody for torture and murder in the west for a crime that was committed in Russia, but we certainly don't have to let them travel to the west or that we can certainly don't have to let them use our banks in the west. We can freeze their assets in the west. And so that's when I came up this idea of freezing their assets and banning their visas. And so I took this idea to Washington. And I met two senators in the senator Benjamin cardin who was a Democrat from Maryland and senator John McCain, a Republican from Arizona. And I said, can we freeze their assets and ban their visas? And these two senators were so moved by the story. They said, yes, we can. And they made something called the magnitsky act. And that's when they put this idea of the magnitsky act on the books. And it was originally just to go after the people who killed Sergei magnitsky. But as soon as other people victims have heard of this story, the phones in these two senators offices started lighting up with calls from Moscow and other parts of Russia saying you found the Achilles heel of the Putin regime. This is what they do. They commit terrible crimes in Russia and they keep their money in the west. Can you possibly sanction the people who killed my husband, my brother, my sister, my aunt, and after about a dozen of these calls, these two senators realized they are, they were under something much bigger than just one case. And so they added 65 words to the law to include all human rights abusers in Russia, not just the people who killed magnitsky. And all of a sudden, all sorts of victims fanned out across Capitol Hill, telling their stories and in November of 2012 it went for a vote in the Senate and it passed 92 to four, the magnitsky act passed 92 to four and asked of representatives have passed with 89% and on December 14th, 2012, president Obama signed the magnitsky act into the federal law. And Vladimir Putin went out of his mind. He got so angry that in retaliation, he banned the adoption of Russian orphans by American families, and that may sound bad. There's actually much worse than it sounds because the orphans that the Russians put up for adoption were the unhealthy ones. And Americans would come with open hearts and open arms and take these children back to America and nurse them to help. And in Russia, the orphanages didn't have the resources and these kids would die. And so basically Putin was sentencing his own orphans to death. He then made it a single largest foreign policy priority to try to repeal the Megan's gas. And he even went so far as ascending his own representative, a female lawyer named the Natalia vessel that's Gaia to Trump Tower after Trump was nominated but before he was elected president with a specific request that if he becomes president Asia repeal the maintenance gas. Now I'm happy to say that it didn't work, but no magnitsky act has ever been repealed. In fact, not repealed, but it was broadened the magnitsky act in 2016 became the global magnitsky act, which doesn't just go after the people who do terrible things in Russia, but China and Iran and Venezuela and all other countries. And magnitsky act now exists not just in the United States. There are now 34 countries that have magnitsky acts around the world. And this is actually the tool, the template, which is being used to go after all the bad guys in Putin's regime that are involved in the war in Ukraine. Let's talk a little bit about this invasion of Ukraine, which you've described as really a wig, the dog, you know, sort of situation, Putin is trying to distract the Russian populace from the state of their economy and all the corruption that's taking place. Tell us your thoughts about what's going on now. Putin has to divert the anger that Russian people have for that you can't get a doctor to prescribe medicine. Your children aren't being educated or potholes in the roads and being filled. It has to distract from that anger. He can put ten people in jail. He could put a hundred people in jail, he could put a thousand people in jail, but if a million people marched on red square, he's finished. And he's so scared of that. And he's traded such a pressure cooker type of situation by stealing all this money over such a long period of time that he knows that that's going to that kind of thing is going to come for him at some point. And that's why he started this war. Everybody is desperate for this thing to end. And a lot of people, a lot of very learned people in Washington and another Berlin in London are all looking at this thing and saying, well, if we give him this or we give him that, then maybe he'll stop. And first of all, appeasement never works, but beyond that, that shows that a fundamental misunderstanding

For the Great Reset to Take Hold, the Parent-Child Bond Must Weaken

"We've been talking about this theme for a couple of weeks that in order for the great reset to occur for a globalist vision of humanity to set in, the parental child bond must weaken. That the bond that children have with their parents is all that ties a society together. The Bible has told us this time and time again, the Bible has in the ten commandments. The only commandment that comes to the promise and involves your nation on your mother and father. So I mean, you might live long in the land of which you are in. A parental child bond actually keeps us free. Free from government intervention involvement in authoritarianism. There is no example of communism coming into place where strong families persisted. It does not exist. The phrase mother Russia, for example, came forward because they raised young children to believe their true mother was the Russian government. And Mao Zedong's China may have the Mao's red guard actually incentivizing children to turn their parents in. If they were not properly loyal to Mao's government, in Cuba, children were indoctrinated to believe that their maternal parents were not actually as important as the government body. I could go example after example and Mugabe's Rhodesia, which became Zimbabwe. That in order for these totalitarian experiments to be successful, the family is in the way. This is one of the reasons why we have seen a resurgence and a revival. And an unexpected strengthening of the parents party.

Phelim McAleer Tells Us About His Revealing New Film 'My Son Hunter'

"Show as promised from the emerald isle, our friend mcaleer. You really are in Ireland at present, are you not? Top of the morning to you. I am indeed to be sure. And so you're in Ireland, but the reason we're having you on today is because you and your lovely wife have been involved in creating so many things, but the most recent is called my son hunter, which is a film about Hunter Biden. And of course, the news has come out recently telling us what we already knew that the Hunter Biden laptop was obviously preposterously obviously authentic, so where do things stand now with the film and tell us more about, let's get more into the conversation. Yeah, well, the film is basically the Hunter Biden story. Actually, it's the Biden family story. It's the story of the Biden family corruption. And we shot the film in CeraVe best heavily on the laptop materials. And Hunter Biden's involvement in a country that you probably haven't heard of called Ukraine. Hunter Biden's involvement in Ukraine. But what, you know, what bearing could that have on the world situation, the sun of the vice president, the son of the president, having nefarious corrupt dealings with Ukraine? What trouble could possibly come of such a thing? Well, exactly. And also, we have the then vice president openly posting to the council for foreign relations that he got a prosecutor investing corruption fired in the Ukraine. You know, so this is a family that have their tentacles deep in the political and economic structures of Ukraine. And Hunter Biden's honor Biden was involved at the time when there was a pro Russian government in Ukraine when there was a pro Russian president. He was involved in burisma, which had many of its assets in the east of the country in the Russian part of the country, so this so I don't know what their hideout translates today. But surely journalists out there isn't this worth investigating, isn't this worth

What Is the Ultimate Virtue According to Aristotle?

"Virtue that is seemingly absent? That is so hard to find. In today's time so if you list the virtues, according to Aristotle, they have a hierarchy. If you list the virtues, they, in some ways, are separate, but others touch each other. So Aristotle would say the virtues would be that of benevolence. Spiritedness, friendliness, wittiness, truthfulness. Being generous, temperate, but the virtue that Aristotle said is the ultimate virtue because it touches all the others. It's the first virtue. Is courage. So what is courage? What courage is doing the right thing, knowing your ends, knowing what you want, even though you do not know how it is going to work out. Courage is the right disposition towards pain. Courage as George S. Patton would say multiple times is the most necessary, yet absent characteristic in men. Now, in order to be courageous, you must have a good end in mind. If you don't have a good end, then your actions are actually not courageous. They're foolish. So for example, the warriors fighting for Vladimir Putin, they might exhibit something that would be categorized by the Russian government as courageous, but we would say it's foolish. You're fighting for a foolish cause you're invading a sovereign country for land and for treasure. That's not courage. In order to have something be courageous, it's not just having the right disposition towards pain, it's not just doing the thing that needs to be done when you don't know how it's going to work out, but you must have the proper end in mind. You must be fighting for the good. It

John Solomon Updates Us on John Durham's Latest Filing

"John, what are you working on for your TV show? What's the latest at stories you're going to break? Yeah, we're going to talk a little bit about John Durham in the filing over the weekend. And you know who you are, Ted. Thank you for sending me the filing as soon as it dropped. I've got somebody who just boop sends me the documents. I asked, hey, Dave on Gina, have you got it? No, send it to me. So give us a little update on what's happening with Donald Trump. Listen, he basically, for the first time, accused Hillary Clinton's lawyer, Michael sussman, of political deceit of dropping a false allegation on the FBI and then lying about who he was doing in on behalf of and what assessment had argued is please, he asked the judge, please dismiss these charges because lying to the FBI should be protected by the First Amendment. It's one of his arguments. And the second argument, can you stop there a lawyer, a lawyer actually said that lying to a federal agent is part of the constitution? Basically said that this would have a chilling effect on free speech if he was allowed to be prosecuted for lying to the FBI. I'm not making it up. You can read it just the news. It's crazy. So there's that argument. And then the other argument is that what he told the FBI wasn't material. It didn't have an effect, and therefore it can't be prosecuted as a felony. Well, John Durham had a very different filing. And he said, it was material. In fact, Michael sussman had told the truth and said he was bringing this to the FBI on behalf of the Clinton campaign in a tech aligned with the campaign. The FBI might not have even opened this part of the Russian government. Well, again, I don't know who his lawyers are, but they seem to be rather cretinous because it's because of this meeting that the FBI opening investigation. So how can you say it's immaterial to a government? Yeah, yeah, listen, I think that's exactly what John Durham said, which is I don't get this argument at all, but just in case you do here, let me give you our side of it. It was a very powerful filing, and it also reminds you how much history could have been changed, had the Clinton people just told

"It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Steven skeep And I'm Leila faldon overnight Ukraine's president volodymyr zelensky condemned a Russian strike on a maternity and children's hospital in the southern support city of Mario bowl Another war crime He called it a war crime and attempted genocide video of that hospital shows a burned out courtyard and what appears to be a massive bomb crater burned out windows line the walls of the yellow buildings and images from inside show only wreckage For the record a Russian government spokesperson says the whole incident is fake We're going to NPR's Eric westerville He's here in western Ukraine with me And a warning what you're about to hear is disturbing Good morning Eric Morning Leila Eric these images out of Mario pool are just devastating What's the latest on the Russian attack on this maternity and children's hospital Well you're right They're truly some brutal and frankly difficult to watch videos and photos coming out of this Pregnant women being wounded and being carried by stretchers across really this devastated landscape There are several enormous bomb craters some look to be two stories deep their fears You know people could be buried in the dirt and rubble including some children the surrounding buildings are burning and partially crumbling There are sort of matchstick like stocks where trees once stood It's just devastating And inside the hospital or really what's left of it I should say you can see in the videos and photos you know bloody mattresses blood on the floors on changing tables It's just awful awful to see in all the Ukrainian government says at least three people including a child were killed at least 17 others Were wounded including some pregnant women Ukrainian president of the Bloomberg zelensky spoke about it overnight He switched to Russian importantly and he seemed to be speaking directly to the Russian people What kind of country is this How can the Russian Federation be afraid of a children's hospital Of a building of mothers and then destroys that The president also urged the west to impose even tougher economic sanctions and he again asked for a no fly zone but that idea has been soundly rejected by NATO which says that could easily widen this war So despite what you described despite these images Russia again denied targeting civilians and civilian infrastructure the Kremlin called the hospital attack report fake news and said the area had long ago been taken over by Ukrainian military troops Right the Ukrainian government says look the idea that this was a fighting position and a military post is simply absurd You know in recent days a blood collection center and a large regular hospital there were also hit By the Russians and big civilian targets have been regularly hit and shelled and in many other cities in the east Eric we're two weeks into Russia's invasion and Mario pool is one of several cities under an intense siege citizens for days have been trying to evacuate out What more do we know about the situation today Well we've talked to some local residents there I mean they continue to paint an increasingly dire picture no water electricity or fuel food running low some people are melting snow for drinking water And this morning there are also some gasoline images of residents on the outskirts of Mario pole wrapping dead bodies in these plastic bags They look sort of like big black contractor bags They're also wrapping dead bodies in carpets and dumping them into newly dug trenches These are effectively mass graves It's just not safe for people to do any kind of proper burial So locals are seen wearing gloves and mass and crouching as they do this because of the risk of Russian fire And the government says about 1200 civilians have died in this ten day seeds there And people want to get out And again today Ukraine will try to open humanitarian quarter corridors to allow civilians to flee as we've seen though those corridors end up getting shelled what's the latest on those Yeah briefly most days these quarters have failed They're going to try again today Some citizens have gotten out including in the city of sumi in the northeast And we'll see how it goes today The NPR's Eric westerville in western Ukraine thank you for your time You're welcome How much of a toll are political attacks taking on the people who make sure our elections are free and fair Attacks on democracy and on the voting system in the United States have become more common since the 2020 election and a news survey asks what the professionals think People who are responsible for voting in America And pierce miles parks is with us high miles Hey good morning Good morning So what is this new data So this is really one of the first attempts at quantifying the experience of the people sort of on the front line of democracy the county election officials who actually make voting happen The Brennan center for justice commissioned a poll of about 600 of these officials from across the country and the biggest takeaway here is that the 2020 election has taken a real toll on these people to the point that one in 5 say it's unlikely that they'll even be in their job come to 2024 presidential race I talked to Larry Norton who's the senior director of elections and government at the Brennan center There's a crisis in election administration and I think the poll shows me that election officials see it too They're concerned and they're not getting the support that they need This is something we have heard over and over again anecdotally over the last year and a half but this is some of the first data we have to actually back it up Former president Trump and many high profile Republicans have continued making false claims about the 2020 election Is that pushing these people out It seems to be playing a big role You know the poll found that of the people who say they're planning to leave the profession in the next couple of years the two biggest reasons were number one politicians lying about the security of America's voting system and then number two that the job is way too stressful which probably ties back a little bit to point number one We also know that the increased polarization which has been furthered a lot by the rhetoric from former president Trump and others that that's led to a big increase in threats of violence against local election officials I talked to Natalie adona who helps run elections in Nevada county California She told me she's constantly worried about her colleagues That's somebody's going to get hurt one day I had to shut down our office lobby to.

real estate is an application are they trying to develop other applications as well Yeah so one of the interesting things about the matter port story and we launched coverage of matterport last week publishing a primer on the terminal And we think there's a great opportunity for them to expand into new verticals So like I said about two thirds of their revenue comes from the real estate market about half residential and the remainder commercial real estate But they have the opportunity to grow into new markets like construction for document documentation of the construction process It could be used in insurance and repair for claims It can be used in architecture where 3D models can be scanned into the architect's design software So there's a lot of potential uses for this Deandre estate

Why Would Russia Attack Ukraine's Largest Nuclear Power Plant?

Why Would Russia Attack Ukraine's Largest Nuclear Power Plant?

"So the Ukrainian Russian situation is ongoing. It's very murky. It's increasingly cloudy. As far as the situation on the ground. Late last night, there was a story that came out. That alleged that Russia attacked a nuclear power plant in Ukraine, the largest in Europe is the way the media covered it. Ukraine nuclear authority accused Russia of shelling the Ukrainian power plant, saying that a fire was broke out at Zappos zora zaya, nuclear power plant Z NPP, but the Ukrainian state emergency service units put the fire out at 6 20 p.m.. The state regulatory inspector reported, quote znp power units remain intact, unit one reactor compartment auxiliary buildings have been damaged, which does not affect the safety of the unit. So immediately, Ukraine comes out and they say, hey, this is an attack from the Russian government. It's an attack on all of Europe. We need to respond in kind, but it just happened to not be true. Yes, there was an electrical fire. There was something that triggered it, but it was not an intentional shelling of a nuclear power plant. Here's how I know why. Immediately, my friend in Chicago and I were texting back and forth and he made a very astute point. He said, wait a second. Why would Russia bomb a nuclear power plant? If the, let's say, radioactive exhaust could blow east, into Russia. Why would they do such a thing as that? Why would they bomb a nuclear power plant that could actually harm the people of Russia if the winds were to carry the radioactive overflow exhaust for everyone to call it? They wouldn't. It wouldn't make any sense. It would be completely and totally

I actually encourage the fascination of anyone international leaders. I don't know what Lindsay was thinking. But what is the off ramp as they say for Putin? Is there one? Yeah, that's a great question. Well, I think we're heading into the second act of a Greek tragedy and this is maybe where we can look for an out rampage. You're going to see fighting in cities. You're going to see tremendous casualties in civilian populations. At 3 million population of the city, you're going to try to see an attempt to decapitation of a government where that means basically changing the government out. And when that happens, I think the world is going to wake up and go, oh, this is really bad. We need to maybe say some type of measures to protect at least the western part of Ukraine.

"Make things easier for them and makes it making it easier to believe this narrative is the fact that the Russians have been the Russian government has been clamping down on foreign media and foreign sources of information So they have just shut down BBC Russian service The Deutsche oil and some other some other foreign media which basically leaves many Russians with just internal sources of information internal narrative that presents this as some kind of a war of liberation against Nazis and you know I'm afraid to say and I'm deeply saddened to say that as a Russian that so many people in Russia actually believe the nonsense and buy into it and now I don't say that everybody does and they would say the liberal until again see a so called liberal intelligence in Moscow and St. Petersburg are by and large a poor there are gassed There are horrified by what's going on But you know now that the Russian government has unleashed a repressions and are promising long prison terms for speaking up against this war I wonder how many of those of my liberal Friends in Moscow and St. Petersburg will quite will say to themselves you know maybe it's time to be quiet I don't know It's a scary situation for many of them The Russian defense ministry made its first acknowledgment of Russian troops that have been killed in Ukraine It said almost 500 Ukraine claims there have been over 5000 So big discrepancy there Does the fact that Russians are dying in Ukraine Does that change public opinion In Russia and then does that have an effect on Putin It's hard to say what has an effect on Putin at this stage Putin is sitting in his bunker surrounded by very few trusted lieutenants who he may not necessarily listen to and put in somebody who just listens to himself and he's clearly not an economist because the consequences of this misadventure in Ukraine have been absolutely dire for the Russian economy Russian economy has been thrown back years and perhaps decades with the sanctions that are not likely to go away Now there is a body count There is as you say a major discrepancy as always in terms of war different size present different numbers We have not yet seen we have not yet seen this translate into some sort of popular movement to gain Putin and in general I would say that the Russians they are kind of passive when it comes to these things Just in a couple seconds a lot of Russia watchers have been saying Putin is unhinged He's different now Do you agree with that Or is this the same Putin You know in a sense it is the same Putin and I think he's still irrational actor we just need to understand his calculation of causing benefits We saw appreciate your time Sergey rodchenko is a professor teaching Russian history.

Charlie May Not Love the Olympics, But He Does Love Justice

"They're occurring? I really haven't watched much of the Olympics, but I do love justice. I have to say. And I don't like delighting in people's failure, but I don't like cheaters at all. You should not like cheaters and I do not like people who try to game the system for their own personal gain while other people are not given that same sort of advantage. So you've probably heard the story it was covered extensively of this woman, young girl actually, 15 year old camellia vala Ava. She fell twice during her free skate. Now she's a cheater, probably because the adults around her quite honestly. I feel sorry for her. She's been used to use by the Russian government as some sort of propaganda tool for skating. And the adults around here should know better and they shouldn't have been giving her these substances so she tested, let's say positive for a banned substance. So, oh, I see. Okay, the drugs allowed her to have more oxygen into her heart. That's really not necessary, I guess it is without the drug she falls down, I guess. I don't understand why you would be doping a 15 year old. And she's 15 years old and she's been used as a prop of the Russian government to try to propagandize the world towards what I don't know that the Russians are the best. No one actually believes that and obviously. I would expect this out of the Chinese Communist Party and I guess we should also expect it out of the Russian equivalent of that. And so she was allowed to compete because the Olympic Committee was saying that if she didn't compete that she wouldn't be too traumatizing for her to pull out from the Olympics, but that if she won the gold that there wouldn't be a there wouldn't be an Olympic ceremony and all this, but she just collapsed. She did terrible for her own standards. And I got to give NBC credit. I don't give NBC credit for a lot. There are Chinese owned and operated. They do deserve credit for how they handled it. I have to say they were they were good. And Johnny weir, who's tough to listen to at times overly dramatic and a lot of these things. I haven't listened to that in years. Nothing against him personally. He said something. They said, nope, that's not going to get it. They'll be gold silver and bronze in the women's event in Beijing and so that means that he left the Johnny weir system thank God. And

John Zmirak Has Some Thoughts on Ukraine and Vladimir Putin

"In ladies and gentlemen. I have good news and bad news. The good news. I'm talking to John's mirac. The bad news, everything he says. Okay, John. Let's talk about the Ukraine. The other day I had the privilege of sitting with Sebastian gorka. I want to get him on this program because he was making the case of why we would why we should defend Ukraine. And others, I was trying to understand in my mind once the Soviet Union fell NATO is over. You don't need NATO. I never really understood why we preserve this fiction of we still have the Cold War going even though it's over. The same reason for the same reason we still have Amtrak. And that's it. It's institutional bureaucracy and admission bloat, I'll say this. Vladimir Putin is right. Everything Vladimir Putin has asked for from the United States is legitimate. Like if we go to wait, I want to just maybe if we go to war with Russia over this. We will be wrong and we will deserve to lose. This is worse than the Iraq War because there was a legitimate pretext for the Iraq War, even though it was stupid. This is worse than the war in Afghanistan. This will be more like the Spanish-American War or the Mexican-American War when where we were basically in the wrong. We, the U.S. are CIA overthrew the legitimate popularly elected government of Ukraine in a coup d'etat that was eerily similar to what happened to our election in 2020. The same CIA deep state types who overthrew the government in Ukraine because it was too pro Russian. We have audiotape of the U.S. ambassador talking to one of her aides. This is about ten years ago. This is when Yanukovych was overthrown. Right. We have audio of the U.S. ambassador chatting with her staff about who should be the next president. Because she was the one picking him. Imagine if the Russia overthrew the government in Mexico because it was too pro American, put in a pro Russian government, created a military alliance with Russia, like NATO is with the U.S. and then tried to take pieces of Texas.

"The U.S. government is saying that it has learned and it has information significant information The Russian government was planning this false flag operation and basically it's one where they fabricated an attack by Ukrainian military or intelligence forces against Russian territory or against Russian speaking people to justify military action against Ukraine And they say there's this video that they've created that will depict graphic scenes of a staged false explosion with corpses actors depicting mourners images of destroyed locations and military equipment and they say they believe that this video will involve military equipment that's fabricated to look like Ukrainian or allied nations video The thing that's important about this is this is not the first time something like this has happened Back in 2014 there was a video that was circulated in Louisiana about an explosion at a gas plant and oil plant that appeared to be the work of ISIS Well when we found out later on what was going on it was a video that was staged by Russian intelligence the troll factory in St. Petersburg that did this kind of work and pushed out to the world and made us believe something that wasn't true And that's essentially what the U.S. is uncovered here So that's one part of the plan What else have you learned about this and tell us how all of this was revealed Well this senior administration official said they essentially came into this information because they keep a close eye on what's been going on with Russian intelligence and Russian military and they say they believe as well that this is one of a number of options that Russia has been developing and in part they've learned about it because they have sources they have intelligence stuff that they share with the Ukrainians and Ukrainian share with the U.S. and others but they say they also believe and this is a part of I'm sure how they found out about this because they keep a close eye on them but they believe that some of the people who are being recruited for this attack have already essentially been signed up for this and that Russian intelligence is intimately involved.

"The message now that previously they felt they might be beyond the target set of these hacker groups. And they'll now have to think again. Yeah. I mean, you know, certainly, this is, uh Not becoming less of a thing, is it? Colonial pipeline Now JBs, which I think most of us have learned over the past day or so. Provides about a quarter of all of the beef in this country and is one of the largest in the world. Joining us to talk about what's going on here is cyber security expert Nick Powers of uncommon and It connected the first question. I have it pertains to the country of origin. So obviously we're talking about us operations being impacted here. Does it matter that JBs is actually a Brazilian based company? You know, Brian, That's a great question, actually, and something I've been thinking a lot about this morning. You know, um, these conglomerates in that's that's what J Bs is a conglomeration of a lot of different companies throughout the world. By companies. In fact, they bought Pilgrim's pride here in United States, which makes them the number two poultry producer as well. So they're number two and beef, pork and poultry United States. And they do have different, you know, potentially regulations and laws, but typically as a zoo. They do operations of North American, especially the United States. They still are at the you know. They have to still comply with our cyber security rules are regulations they still over are incentivized to do a good job in cybersecurity. So I don't think at the end of the day that being a Brazilian own company really matters. So Russia has put us on notice. In fact, just a couple of days ago you had Vladimir Putin say that leading up to a summit a meeting where President minus indicated he's going to put pressure on Putin over human rights. Issues, Putin said that the United States is going to be made to be uncomfortable. This would seem to be, you know, cause and effect and I think some people provided maybe room of doubt that the first hack of the colonial pipeline was at the behest of the Russian government. Do you believe that this likely is linked? The Russian government. You know, right now, Early indicators say it is linked to Russia. I have yet to see an official official. You know, FBI saying it was Russia, Um, you know, I think this needs to go back a little bit further past colonial. We look back to last year when cozy bear attacked, you know, multiple companies, multiple systems organizations. Governments across the world with the solar wind, Zach basically, what you have now is a treasure trove of information, access security. And, yes, companies have been, you know, working to get back from that? But, you know, typically there's you're never gonna fix everything unless you wipe everything clean and start over again. And so, you know, that was a Russian state sponsored group that did that hack You know, they could put a ton of pressure on us for many years, many years to come, and I think that's really where you see the origin of of, you know, potentially some pressure coming from them to us. Nick. It's easier for all of us to, you know, sit where we said and go. Why is it after what just happened with Colonial? You could have another major conglomerate, you know, potentially go down that the same way. Is this a case where in your experience, most to even large companies just don't take it seriously until it happens to him. Well, you know, based on everything we've seen so far coming out of J B s, um, to say they weren't taking it seriously. It's probably not exactly correct. Um, what we're seeing right now today is there already indicating that only the nine beef plants in the United States were really material in materially impacted. Um, which is awesome. Because you know when you look at the 80, plus plants they have in the United States, Um this could have been a major major issue. Um, And so what they're saying today is that they have their their backup systems worked. Were able to restore from backups are able to get things back off the ground. In fact, In some cases, they were still able to continue to ship product. They aren't able to actually process product and track it more not but still able to ship and and make sure that they got their shipments out the door. So I feel like you know, if you're going to get hit by a cyber attack, you know, being able to get back up and running within a couple of days. That's that's monumental, especially when you think about the size of J B s so I would say based on you know what we're seeing from them today and you know, it's it's all here saying so. At the end of the day they come out with the official reports. They've got a pretty good job of preparing for something like this. What we're going to continue to see those soft targets, especially in the manufacturing. And you know, for instance, the industrial base of pledging base of our food systems. I think those are gonna be targets Those air those areas that have not really had a lot of focus in the past. There's been a lot of consolidation there. And so I think there's it's ripe for a lot of the tax. Elect, you go back to Al Qaeda. And no. Some have been long stated goal. He realized that they weren't going to be able to take the United States on militarily in come out with a victory. But if they could cripple our economy, then they could end up. You know, potentially bringing us to our knees, hints some of the Targets and the methods by which they went about terrorism. Now to that end, a lot of people have taken on the vulnerability of the power granting on. Oh, my gosh. What happens if we have an empty somewhere along the way? Could we actually be seen a different version of terrorism playing out? On and right now we're seeing the extent of vulnerability. Yeah. Yes, I agree with that, Brian. To a certain extent. I.

"Marco Woman you with the world on a Monday Across Russia for a second weekend in a row. Protesters flooded the streets and support of detained opposition politician Alexei Navalny chat there in Russian, all for one and one for all. Over the past six months, Navalny has been poisoned, flown to Berlin for treatment recovered. Returned to Russia and immediately put behind bars where his symbolism is a victim of government oppression. Seems on Lee to have grown. Reporter Charles Maynes was in the streets of Moscow yesterday during the protests. What did you see Charles? One of the protests look like and feel like The first thing that we noticed, of course, was that the entire center of Moscow was in lockdown. I mean, it was really remarkable. You talk to people they'd say they'd never seen this. All the Metro's were closed businesses, closed police vans and troops preventing anyone and I mean anyone I'm getting into a spot outside the old KGB headquarters were in Navalny supporters said they would gather at noon on this snowy Sunday morning. So what happened next? Well in the Balinese team improvised. They decided that they couldn't hold this rally because no one could get there. And they start issuing instructions on social media is telling people we're together in other parts of the city. We had protesters trudging through snow looking at their phones, trying to find other demonstrators. And, of course, riot police were quickly dispersed to stop them and certainly was also notable for more aggressive policing than we saw, even just in the previous rally that was just a week ago. There is a disturbing use of Tasers, electrical shocks, rendering demonstrators unconscious and several cases. Protesters were beaten with batons and taken away in some situations by masked men without insignia. So it was really a massive show of force. I mean, there's several 1000 arrests in Moscow, but 5600 arrests nationally, and that's another really important factor here. This isn't just happening in the capital. There were rallies held in over 100 cities across This massive territory called the Russian Federation. So Navalny is in jail. But there are other protest leaders. What's happened to them? Well, you know, Navalny has built up this national infrastructure with his anti corruption foundation. He has little affiliates and towns all across the country, and we saw many of his associates rounded up before Sunday. There were many put under house arrest until late March that includes his brother, Oleg Navalny and other key allies from his Moscow affiliate. This includes the lawyer loop of Sobel. And they're all being charged with violating math gathering restrictions during the Corona virus, which is a little bit strange, given that Moscow just pulled restrictions on nightclubs and bars here, and that's a saw pro democracy activists being plucked off the streets and given short sentences for antisocial behavior, an effort to keep them out of the protests on Sunday. And then also efforts to intimidate through other means, warning that this protest was unsanctioned illegal and would be dealt with accordingly. This one student I spoke with on Sunday we're from a local university here in Moscow. Her name's Katarina. She's 18 and let's listen to what she has to say, Mr Gently, er, shit. Democracy Montgomery, the store yesterday movement in which are dramatic meeting, she says, Look, we're students. She's there with a friend and they were threatened by the school administration. They were told that if they took partners protests, they wouldn't be able to find good paying jobs that have problems with their studies. But they said, We're not scared or frightened. We want to come out in the streets. But the fact is, authorities promised it would be rough, and it was What else did you hear from protesters yesterday, Charles. One common thread seemed to be least among the people that I spoke with was that this isn't just about electing a balmy he's become something of a conduit for anger with the Russian government, often on generational lines of the fact is, I've only supporters skew younger. I want to bring in a voice of Andre. He's a 35 year old medical worker. So yeah, I will buy. You know your heart just goes to show us the Vargas could cut off the street. And so Andre says that in general, Yeah, he supports Navalny. But it's not just about him. He cites, for example, that he's angry that there's been no change at the top in Russian government in Russian politics for over 20 years, of course, with Vladimir Putin at the top. And he also looked at the economy and says that people are really struggling and another view I heard from people was that this was just obviously unconstitutional that the way the laws were being bent to keep Navalny in prison was just unfair. And this idea that if it could happen to Navalny, this famous guy could happen to anyone. This is Ana, another university student. Yes, those stories did you don't distribute lever would carry. It'll settle. So she says she thinks that Navalny's been unjustly imprisoned. And that's why she came out to protest but not because she necessarily wants to see him as the future president. And, she added, Know that justice is on our side. The Constitution gives her the right to assemble peacefully. It's that the authorities aren't obeying the law. So Charles, what will all of these protests amount to when Alexei Navalny's case appears before the court? I mean, is this of any benefit to him? Well, it's been the strategy of Navalny's allies essentially to show the government that navalny behind bars is more of a headache than navalny operating out in the open. But there's a sense that this time may be different poisoning attack that navalny and independent media investigation say was carried out by the Russian security services and that certainly raised about his profile at home and abroad. He's also released this new video investigation into the Russian president, which alleges that Vladimir Putin secretly owns this opulent palace in the Black Sea. So it's essentially attacked Putin's reputation and that video now has a whopping 100 million views on YouTube. This has all gotten really, really personal and kind of reduced Russian politics to these two men, Putin and Navalny and some observers say, instead of ignoring a volunteer, pretending he doesn't matter, which was the old kind of Kremlin line on him. This time they want him gone. Here's a clip from a recent conversation I had with Andre Kalashnikov of the Moscow Carnegie Center, the already to be cruel, his end of the day they wanted to kill him. Poison him And here is no problem to Lou Imprison him, Charles. It's not at all encouraging what happens next?.
