"And there's really not a lot of understanding about why Russia cares so much about Ukraine. Why Ukraine really occupies why Ukraine is as the kids say living rent free and Vladimir Putin's head. But the reason is because Ukraine is the wellspring from which the Russian imperial impulse sprang. Without Ukraine, without Kievan Rus', there's no Russian Empire. So you can not be a new Russian Empire without subjugating Ukraine

Listen to senator hawley confronting this mealy mouth wishy washy, non committal energy secretary because after all, one would think that when people are looking at maybe $6 a gallon for gas, they got to deflect blame. And the record high gas prices have to be anybody's fault, but theirs listen to this exchange. And I'm sure you've seen the reporting this morning that now triple-A is projecting that gas prices will hit a national average average of $6 a gallon by the month of August, is this acceptable to you? No, it is not. And you can thank the activity of Vladimir Putin for invading Ukraine and pulling a oh, nonsense. With all due respect, madam secretary, that's utter nonsense. In January of 2021, the average gas price in my state was $2 and 7 cents. 8 months later, 8 months later, long before Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, that price was up over 30%, and it has been going up consistently since. What are you doing to reverse this administration's policies that are drawing down our own supply of energy in this country that are throttling oil and gas production in the United States of America? What are you doing about it? Sir, it is not administration policies that have affected supply and demand. How can you say

You're doing one. Well, no, but listen, there's a levels to this game. And interviewing somebody like Vladimir Putin also language barrier, sit across from the man, tried to keep an open mind, tried to also ask challenging questions, but not challenging with an agenda, but seeking to understand. And I understand deeply. How do you do that? Seeking the truth. It's very simple, seeking the truth, being a questioner like you are, you want to know what is really going on. I could not get anywhere with Biden or bush or for that matter Obama. They'd be opaque with me. There's no interview possible with the president of the United States because he's got to stand for all the stuff that they stand for, which is imperialism, which is control of the world. How can you defend that? No one's going to come out and say that. They're always going to blame the enemy. They're going to blame Iran. They're going to blame China. So some people may not be possible to break through the opaque. I mean, have you ever seen an interview with the president? Besides being personable, where he actually discussed American policy? Yeah, I mean, not really, but maybe after their president, I could see Obama being able to do such an interview..

So the imperialist imperative is coming more from the west imperialist. It's the imperialist agenda going back to I'm sorry where we left our discussion off. I mean, I was going to go on with America not only being closed down now, closed down and you say, it's not fear. Well, it is fear. I am scared. Because if you get your Facebook page to spend it or YouTube, Twitter account thrown off. A lot of good people are getting there. Thrown off. You can't say you can't speak out. It affects your business. It goes back to the 1950s when my father's world, when you could not express any sympathy for a Soviet Union without endangering your job without basically being not trusted. You had to be part of the program to get along to go along. Same thing when the United Kingdom for all their talk, this Boris Johnson is an idiot. But all their talk about do you remember their policies with the IRA in Ireland when Ireland was threatening them? They cut off the IRA completely. Jerry Adams, who was a wonderful guy, I met him, was not allowed to even be heard in Britain during certain years. In France, all constantly through the Algerian war, the algerians were not allowed to be heard. The Algerian war for independence divided France greatly, you could not even show paths of glory. World War I film in France for, I don't know, 20 years after it came out. Censorship is a way of life when democracies also feel threatened. They are much more fragile than they pretend to be. A healthy democracy would take all the criticism in the world and shrug it off and say, okay, that's what's good about our country. Well, I'd like to see that in America. It used there are times that it's been like that, but it's so scary now. So it is scary. That's what I was trying to say. It's not un scary to me. In China, I would say to you, yes, it's much scarier to me because there is the Internet wall that they cut off and I got in a problems in China too because I said something in years ago about you have to discover your own history. You have to be honest about Mao. You have to be. You have to go back and let's make a movie about Mao. That upset them. And show his negatives. So China has been much more sensitive than Russia about criticism, much more. And it is a source of problems, but on the other hand, China has a lot of grievances. A lot of going back to the 19th century and the British imperialism of that era and the American imperialism. If you could talk to Vladimir Putin once again. Now, what kind of what kind of things would you talk about here? What kind of questions would you ask?.

"It was no long a president and Vladimir Putin became president. You did a series of interviews with Vladimir Putin, as you mentioned, over a period of two years from 2015 to 2017. Let me ask the high level question. What was your goal with that conversation? Came out in 2017, I guess I started them in 2014. At that point, there's no nefarious happened. I was working on a movie on Snowden. That happened in 13. Ukraine happened in 14. And one thing after another, by 14, Pope Putin was enemy number again becoming a wanted man on the American list. He was certainly in the top 5, but the animosity towards Putin had been growing since 2007 at Munich. I remember that speech when he made it, it's in my documentary that's a four hour documentary, four different conversations. I mean, we talked to over two years, two and a half years. But I remember that image of him at Munich, making a very important speech about world harmony about the balance necessary in the world. And I remember the sneer, the sneer on John McCain's face, he was in Munich, obviously eyeballing Putin and hating him. And it was so evident that McCain had no belief whatsoever that this he was almost treating him like these are the communists are back. And we know that Putin was not a communist. We know the Putin is very much a market man. And he made it very clear and tried to keep an open climate. A new relationship with Europe, but the United States always certain people in the United States always sell that as a threat, like Putin is trying to take Europe away from us as if we own it. As if we have the right to own it. But Putin was making the point. It's very important about sovereignty. Sovereignty for a country is crucial for this new world to have balance. That's sovereignty for China, sovereignty for Russia, sovereignty for Iran, sovereignty for Venezuela, sovereignty for Cuba. This is an idea that's crucial to the new world, and I think the United States has never accepted that. Sovereignty is not an idea that they can allow. You have.

"KT and I talk every Friday we talk national security. We talk Trump. We talk scotch. One thing we haven't talked about. I'm looking at a post of yours online. It's as Biden once regime change. U.S. Intel brags about targeting Russian generals for Ukraine kills. Lindsey Graham and sis on Putin's unconditional surrender. They may be right, but they are unintentionally goading Putin into expanding the war, question mark. Let's talk about that for a second. Putin doesn't look stable. These things may be the kind of finger in the chest things that set them off. What do you think, KT? Yeah. It's not what's right or what's just. It's what's likely to happen. Should Ukraine win? Yes. Should Russia lose shift? Should Putin be kicked out of absolutely. But what's likely to happen? Lindsey Graham says, well, there's no negotiated solution that we want. It's either unconditional surrender. But how does Putin read this? He reads it a couple of ways. One, he's been in power so long that he identifies himself as Russia. So when somebody says regime change and when it looks like they're helping target Russian generals, he looks at that as an assault against the Russian homeland. And for that, the Russian vaccine says you can use whatever weapons you want. Weapons of asset strikes and nuclear weapons is if somebody is coming after the Russian homeland. And number two, who knows how stable he is. He's been, he's made miscalculations throughout. This is a different Vladimir Putin. So 20 years, he's really had a very bad hand at poker, but he's played it really well. This is the first time that he's miscalculated on his army on Ukrainian resistance. What would happen with NATO? And so he's now facing a very sort of back up against the wall position.

Nina Jankowicz' Analysis of 'Colour Revolution'

"Cut 5 go First of all color revolutions have nothing to do with race The term was coined in the early 2000s when countries like the republic of Georgia and Ukraine had spontaneous peaceful democratic revolutions that had colorful nicknames In 2003 the Georgian opposition protested the opening of a new session of parliament based on fraudulent election results They did it while carrying roses hence the rose revolution In 2004 and 2005 Ukrainians protested their own rigged election Candidate Victor Yushchenko's campaign branding was orange hence the orange revolution You get the idea Color revolutions have earned bad rap though mostly thanks to Vladimir Putin because they brought in democratically minded governments that threatened Russian influence in the region Putin likes to suggest they are CIA organized That is not true Believe it or not sometimes people get fed up with having their voices silenced for decades Putin's narratives intentionally rob protesters of agency They discount the grievances that brought them to the streets risking their lives and ultimately they undermine the resulting governments and now we're seeing the same narrative cropping up here in the United States Here's why it doesn't fit First of all in case we've forgotten protest is a democratic right you are entitled to it Second of all color revolutions happen in autocracies When people are fed up with the indignities of an entrenched regime while we have witnessed some democratic backsliding here in the United States we are not an autocracy We still have checks and balances We still enjoy democratic rights Certainly we are not Georgia in 2003 Ukraine in 2004 or Belarus today

"vladimir putin" Discussed on Today, Explained

"Do not want to be hooked into the Russian Empire. It might have seemed to the western world as a great and marvelous thing. That the Ukrainian people were standing up and asserting their right to democracy. To Putin that was a direct threat. And since that time, he has been waiting for his moment. And that moment appeared to come on February 24th of this year. The Russian president Vladimir Putin is calling this a, quote, special military operation to protect on bass. It is clearly bigger than that. Now he made a surprise. We are now in a new phase, not just in world history, but starting in a more micro sense where in a new phase, in Russian history, we can not continue to superimpose western ideas, western logic, western history, on Russia. Russia is a special place with a special history, and it feels it has every right to live that history. The problem here is that that history impinges directly on other countries, which have an equal right to their own legacy, and their own history, and their own future. At the ring collision, is there a possibility that it will expand? I certainly pray that that is not the case. Why? Because that might then involve the use of nuclear weapons. We have been so fortunate since Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 that these weapons have not been used again. Once the weapon is used, if it be a small size, it doesn't matter. The impact is huge. It opens the door to the use of the big nuclear weapons. How do you stop that? We're at a pivotal moment now. Where the west has to be careful how it uses and deals with Putin and Putin has to be very careful in the way he deals with the west. In 2016, a remarkable thing happened. The United States elected as president Donald Trump. And now we had a situation in which an American president appeared to both like end admire and possibly even respect Vladimir Putin. What did that do for Putin in his mind to have the respect of an American president? I got him. I got him. Yeah. I think the first thing that must have run through Putin's mind is I can't be this lucky. Really, I can't be this lucky. In the 2016 election, everybody, including Trump, believed that Clinton was going to win. And in Putin's mind, that had brought back to Clinton when she was Secretary of State. And the conflict that she always had with Lavrov, and with him. He believed that Clinton was a total cockeyed view, but he believed that Clinton was the person who instigated the Russian people to have their anti Putin demonstrations in 2011. What she said and I think is accurate, the United States was in support of people who wanted their freedom. Good. We might have been a bit too careless in the way in which we were using words and the way in which we took certain actions because Putin regarded the words and the actions, as mortal threats, to him, and to Russia. In that order, and he then felt he had an enemy that he had to defeat. Is there someone in particular waiting behind a curtain so to speak for Putin to either be overthrown or to be killed? Is there one person one friend in particular who you think might take over? No, I do not have a name. There is a group. And that group is small. And you're talking about a handful of people. From that group, some one will emerge. Likely to emerge and replace Putin. But when that is, is that near, if I had to roll the dice right now, I would say we are nearer. To a change in the Russian leadership than we have been in the last 22 years. But are we talking about another year? Another two years? I think not more than that. Not more than that. Russia has a way.

"Back with Marvin kalb journalist author Russia hand for almost 70 years in 2009, the Obama administration announced what it called a reset between the U.S. and Russia. Then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov in Geneva. The cameras were flashing Clinton handed him a red button with a word on it. I wanted to present you with a little gift, which represents what president Obama and vice President Biden and I have been saying. And that word in Russian was supposed to say reset, but it was actually the wrong translation and the word that appeared on the button was overcharged. You get the drunk. I got it wrong. It should be better. Let's talk about that moment. Vladimir Putin was not president, a man named Dmitri Medvedev was, at the time, what was the U.S. trying to reset from? There had been a very long time in the recent historical relationship between Russia and the United States when we were in constant state of anxiety of tension of confrontation and that was all called the Cold War. By the time Clinton came around with Lavrov and the reset idea, what they were trying to do was simply say enough of that confrontation. Let's try to get along because there's a whole rest of the world. That the U.S. has to deal with, and for Medvedev, who was then technically the leader of Russia, with Putin very much in the background, but very much in control. The idea was simply to romance Russia into an association with the west, and they wanted to reset it. It was an easy, very American way of doing things, but not a Russian way of doing things. From the beginning in 2009 and 2010, were there any gains made toward normalizing a relationship between the United States and Russia. Did anything go right? Absolutely. There were a number of agreements that were reached. There were long-term negotiations on arms control. There were trade agreements that were reached, there was more than anything in attitude of openness on that spot. That had never been apparent with Putin. In 2007, Putin delivered to speech in Munich. He simply attacked the west. He made it very clear that he was unhappy with the state as quote. We then came in with this reset, but at that time, Putin felt that the progress that had been made under Medvedev. Was not healthy for Russia. In the years after 2012, what would you say were the pivotal moments where it became clear to you and other observers O Vladimir Putin doesn't want to reset? Vladimir Putin wants to do what Vladimir Putin wants to do and the U.S. be damned. The most important thing that happened were the mass demonstrations inside.

"Putin's own advisers are misleading him about the war, they're telling him what he wants to hear. So what's going through this secretive solitary dictator's mind? We found one man who thinks he knows the answer. It's today explained I'm Noel king for almost 70 years Marvin kalb has loved Russia. In the early 1950s, he studied Russian history as a PhD candidate at Harvard. In 1960, he moved to Moscow as a reporter for CBS News. He's interviewed lots of powerful Russians, but he's never talked to Vladimir Putin. Kelp says, to get insight into Putin, it's better to read about him than to interview him. I have found over the years that if you read intensely, what it is that a leader says or writes or thinks about himself, you're going to get a pretty good idea of what he actually is. Sometimes in an interview you get only what a major political figure wishes to convey. And he does that very well, Putin is an astoundingly good interview. And reporters who get in the views with him, do very well because he can play to the personality. He knows how to deal with people. That's terribly important to him. Based on your many years of reading and observing and knowing that you have a keen sense into who people are. Who is Vladimir Putin? Vladimir Putin at the moment is a very lonely figure. He is finally a dictator. He used to be an authoritarian figure. He used to have the kind of power that a Tsar had. He is now an absolute dictator, and for him, that's a bad thing. What it means is on the one hand he has absolute power to do whatever he wants in Russia, but the people around him are now terrified of him. And that means that they will tell him what they think he wants to hear. That is very bad for any leader of any country. Putin now is in desperate need of solid 100% verified information, and he is not getting it. That is the belief of the U.S. government of western nations, and I think logically given the history of dictatorship. But when you get to an absolute top point of power, you begin to lose it, and put you now is in the process of losing the power that for most of his life he sought to accumulate. He is a former KGB official. One of the young men in the dying days of the Soviet Union, who would try to live in the artificial world, created by the KGB. He would imagine what the western world was like. He would try very hard to understand it. He would pick up a language, the government gave him every opportunity to learn as much about the enemy as he could, and he did, and he thought he would be able to figure out how to manipulate the enemy so that he could destroy it. That was the whole point of the KGB operation. It was an intelligence unit, but it was also a unit that operated to achieve certain ends, and for the KGB the end as always been. The dissolution of the western threat. We know that U.S. intelligence has tried to assess whether the pandemic changed Vladimir Putin's mental state, whether isolation from the pandemic changed him. Was he a solitary person before the pandemic? Was he a lonely figure prior to this virus? Every leader is to some degree a lonely figure, but Putin was not. Putin enjoyed being with people, but at the same time he was always very suspicious of everybody. And so there was always a distance between him, and any one he was negotiating with, and certainly between him, and a person he would regard as an enemy. And so yes, distance existed. He was surrounded always by his own intelligence, his own ambition, his drive for power, and when he achieved that, and he was very good at persuading the man above him. The president of Russia, mister yeltsin, in the 1990s, guilds him brought him down from St. Petersburg to Moscow, yeltsin appointed Putin the head of the KGB or the new version of it. And a couple of years later appointed him prime minister, and then when yeltsin wanted to resign, he looked around and the only person he felt he could trust was potent, and so Putin became his successor, and almost immediately established a new kind of governance in Russia. He had his KGB folks ready to roll into power. Not only in Moscow and Petersburg, but all over the country. It is a vast country. It extends over many time zones. It is difficult to run a country that large. And Putin had his people in position to run it, he had control over the entire operation. He became the boss. And so who surrounds Putin now? Who are his advisers? Who are his friends? The people who are around him now are the same people, more or less, who have been around him for the past 22 years. Wow. They are the people from the KGB, he allowed those people to take over control over large economic assets in the country, oil, gas, timber, were invested in the hands of a very small group. And this small group proved to be effective enough for Putin to become the boss and run this very complex society. What does it tell you that Vladimir Putin has not made new friends over the last 22 years that the same people who surrounded him when he was a KGB agent surround him as he is president of a world power? And that is an extremely important observation, because what we learned from it is that we are dealing with a man who had a certain vision of the world, 2030 years ago, and retains it only in sharper form today. Please remember, Putin is first and foremost, a Russian nationalist. The question that comes into mind is he an ultra nationalist by which I mean, does he see everything? From a Russian point of view and the answer, unfortunately, is yes. And because he sees everything from a Russian point of view, he looks at a country, for.

"Big part of why you're seeing this sort of spirit from the Ukrainian population that you are. So when you step back now, TJ and you look at the full story here that you've reported. The life story of Vladimir Putin to all of these massive global events to the athletes who are clearly on the ground, a part of the biggest news story on earth. What comes to mind? That sports are not incidental to this fight. They are another front in this fight. I mean, this is a war being fought in the streets with guns, but it's also a cyber battle. It is also a battle of information and misinformation and propaganda plays a part like really no other war in recent memory and sports are part of that sports are politics, sports are essential to Russian culture and identity and to Vladimir Putin's identity. And so when the world steps, steps up and says, we are going to eliminate Russia from the global sports community. That's not just propaganda. That is not just a cosmetic step. That is something that absolutely hits at the core of who Russia is of who Vladimir Putin is and how he maintains his support. DJ Quinn, thanks for doing this, man. Thanks, man. I'm Pablo Torre.

"He was a scrapper, Street Fighter. We shot images of the apartment building where he grew up in St. Petersburg. He has one generation removed from maybe the most brutal chapter in Russian history, which was the siege of Leningrad. Once St. Petersburg, Leningrad under communist Soviet rule, and then back to St. Petersburg again. I was born in Leningrad. And as you know, during World War II, Leon grad went through 900 days of blockade. Every day. This is where a million people died during the Nazi siege where people were cannibalizing bodies that were dead in the street where everybody lost family members. And he was born in this rough part of town, he lives in this apartment building where by his description and by others there were this courtyard with drunks and thugs and he's always getting into fights. And he gets into judo and gets good at it. And that became absolutely essential to his personal identity. And all this is happening as he comes of age and then goes to work for the KGB during the Cold War. So now you've got this idea. He is a street scrapper who is now working for the most notorious spy agency in the world. Putin as we know, he joins the KGB, the Russian spy agency, and he gets staffed in Dresden in East Germany during the 70s and 80s. This is the height of the Cold War. Just remind us what the role of sports was during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. Sports were the battlefield. That is where the Cold War was really fought, where there was any actual engagement between the two sides. What it meant, every time these teams faced was which system was superior, capitalism or communism, democracy, or authoritarianism. And in 1972, when the Soviets beat the Americans in basketball was one of the greatest moments in the history of Soviet Russia. Now the clock shows three seconds. There is time for the Russians to go to their big man Alexander bell out. They're going to try. Alexander Bella. Between two American defenders. And this time it is over. Other than, you know, conquering all the nations that they invaded. This was the biggest political victory. And same thing in 1980, for those of us who are old enough to remember, it's funny to think of the American superpower as this plucky little kid on the world stage, but in the hockey world, that's what we were. They were pros. We were amateurs. And then all of a sudden, how many people, even if they weren't alive and can still do Al Michaels, do you believe in miracles? Yes. Unbelievable. It felt like a miracle. That was a political victory for this country. And so these are the formative years for Vladimir Putin TJ is what you're saying. And it takes us to 1991 because this is the collapse now of the Soviet Union, and with it a lot of Russia's sporting empire. Vladimir Putin is returning home from East Germany. He's working his way back up through the political ranks in Russia. He eventually becomes prime minister under the then ailing president Boris Yeltsin. And when yeltsin resigns on the last day of the 20th century, December 31st, 1999, Putin takes over and how does he begin to use sports once he's in office? Well, he recognized a couple of things. One was that having events like the Olympics, like the World Cup, that means you're a world power. That means that you are right up there with everyone else. And I'm choosing this word specifically. When the Soviet Union collapsed and then as yeltsin's presidency collapsed in the late 1990s, it was emasculating for a lot of people in Russia. They had convinced themselves that they were this major world power into the Soviet Union and now they were a joke. The president of the country is this man whose lampooned is a drunk who almost collapses during public events and Putin recognizes that sports are one of the vehicles that can get them back into maybe not actual world power, but at least the appearance of it. And when you run a country like that, appearance counts for an awful lot. I don't know if there's a moment that did more to create that appearance than the one that we got in 2007 TJ when Russia was selected to host the 2014 Winter Olympics. The 22nd Olympic winter games in 2014 are awarded to the city of Sochi. Putin himself was everywhere at the Sochi games. I mean, he was arguably the whole thing's biggest star. Well, they're called the Olympic Games, but they may as well call them the Putin games. Never before have a game has been this closely identified with one personality. And one of the people you talk to for this story, TJ, before he passed away, was senator John McCain, what did he have to say about Putin and staging those Olympics in Sochi? That was really something. That was a month before McCain was diagnosed with the cancer that eventually killed him. We were lucky to get that time. And he immediately drew a contrast with Adolf Hitler in the 1936 Olympics. Having the Olympics and being clearly responsible for it was another step in that deification of Vladimir Putin with the Russian people. Dominating the world's sports was not only his ambition, but by the way, it was another guy, too, and his name was Adolf Hitler. You know, we also interviewed for this piece, Gary Kasparov, one of the, if not the greatest chess player in history, one of the two greatest in a former hero of the Soviet empire. And both of them said that the apt comparison is those 36 Olympics. And both of them pointed out, look, we're looking from the 21st century as Hitler in full of the man who murdered 6 million Jews, tried to take over Europe. But in 1936, he had only been in office a few years and was trying to show the world that Nazi Germany was a force to be reckoned with. I mean, this was a propaganda event. And that's what Kasparov told us when we pressed him about it. We're not talking about Hitler from the history book. We're talking from Hitler of 1936. Where Hitler could enjoy tremendous popularity around the world because he was at a limelight in the center of world attention. That's where you can make the case. It's a valid comparison. A rising authoritarian figure with bigger ambitions than just his own country. Frankly, that holds with Putin. Yeah, TJ look, anytime there's a Hitler reference, right? This is the Godwin's law thing. It sort of is like, wait a minute. Are we sure we want to talk about it in this way? But there do seem to be parallels here that you have come to report out and understand. There is great validity in this because what you're talking about is an authoritarian figure with two audiences. One is domestic, showing look what I can do for us on the world stage. Look at the glory that I'm bringing us. The world is coming here. I'm the leader who did this for us. And at the same time, it's a message to the rest of the world that we are a country to be taken seriously. That is very much what the 36 Olympics were for Hitler. And.

"Else are Russians pushing against Russia vacation? This movement has become more prominent since 2014 when Russia first invaded parts of eastern Ukraine. That already was a big deal, right? That already sort of brought a surge of Ukrainian nationalism. And the best manifestation of that, of course, has been the increase in learning Ukrainian. The move to take out street names with Lenin or other Soviet figures are moving statues, et cetera. I mean, there has been a real push towards that, right? And of course, also, again, just to sort of use Ukrainian and magazines, et cetera. I mean, in some cities, I guess, you would see the situation where if you spoke Russian, you would actually be somewhat frowned upon, you know, within certain circles. Of course, it should be said here. I mean, a lot of people still speak Russian, and there are still ethnic Russians here, and they get no harassment at all. But things have a sort of become difference since 2014 just in terms of being sure to maintain a strong sense of ukrainianness, if you will. Ukraine isn't the only former Soviet republic pushing back against Russian influence these days. There's been protests in Georgia, Belarus, and most recently in Kazakhstan against rulers too close to Putin and all that discontent angers him and his stated intent to create a so called spear of influence with those former Soviet republics. Why is it so important to him? Well, I mean, it's all part of this whole return to the Soviet Union. I mean, people have said this quite often now, but Putin really did consider the record of this review as one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century. And also more to the point, it doesn't matter security. I mean, these countries are within the periphery of Russia. I mean, at some level, it's not surprising that he did this. There's also a lot of anger against the west. Nabi, president Joe Biden has already said that Americans won't fight and die for Ukrainians. So what options does that leave to deter Putin from pushing further into Ukraine? It's not as if Putin is going to be able to have such an easy time of it. This is the second largest country in Europe. It has about 41.3 million people, I believe, or at this point probably even more. And a lot of them are very much anti Russian at this point. And this will only push them to be so even further. And so there will be some kind of popular resistance, right? And of course, it should be mentioned that in recent weeks there have been these territorial defense forces, right, which are essentially people training to just know how to shoot a gun, et cetera know how to organize themselves quickly. And that perhaps is where you have the most hope, right? The people here really do have the ability to organize quickly. And that's going to be a big deal moving forward. Now, of course, the other question is, is Putin going to be taking just only parts of eastern Ukraine. Is he going to only stop at the durance and Lohan's people's republic's borders quote unquote? What is he going to do there? These are the questions that we still do not know. It's actually quite fluid at the moment. Finally, nabi looking beyond Ukraine already Republicans in the U.S. are accusing Biden of being soft. The U.S. is still smarting from 20 years of wars in Afghanistan and the Middle East. It's international reputation as seen better days. How much of Putin's push into Ukraine is really a game of chicken to see how much further the U.S. can be embarrassed on the world stage. I mean, it's hard to say if it's a game of chicken because, you know, the rage he displayed. It just shows that there's these deep sea to grievances at this point. I mean, this is a situation where now we see Russia just really coming into its own as a power yet again, or at least trying to project that image in any case. And basically saying that at this point, the west has ignored us for too long, and they won't ignore us anymore..

"What would happen to Europe if Russia by far its largest supply act cuts off the flow of natural gas that goes westward Javier thank you for joining us this morning There is something of a conventional wisdom that if Russia invades Ukraine the Europeans NATO and the U.S. imposed what they're describing a significant major sanctions on Russia then the option for Vladimir Putin would simply be to cut us all off from the gas that we are so dependent on You say it's not quite as clear cut as that Yes indeed The important point is Europe impossible 40% of the guys that we consumed from Russia So Russia has quite a lot of leverage over the European economy with the gas weapon But I believe that Russia is interested in keeping the dependence of Europe on Russian gas And therefore president Vladimir Putin is only 15 and the use of the guys weapon is reducing shipments into Europe But it's a stop in short of the big cutoff either cutting the supply via Ukraine or a continent why shut down And I think that that's because guys here plays a similar role to nuclear weapons in conventional warfare is a move to our Asher and this proxy or mad And that means that if one step was to use that gas weapon certainly it will impose huge economic damage into the European Union into the European continent But at the same time we will guarantee for sure that Europe will move having a higher in the next few years to never again rely on Russian gas And therefore Vladimir Putin will use the weapon only one but going forward that weapon will be off because it will not be able to use it in the future So I think that it is only worse if he never really uses it Yeah interesting Although I suppose it depends how you see Vladimir Putin and his assessment of things you know whether Russia as a sort of Sparta prepared to take the dire consequences for further military gain On the other hand will see immediate threat What happens if despite Moscow's denials that this will happen Russia actually does invade Ukraine further Well then we will have an impact on cash But potentially we can lose the Russian gas that flows into Europe Ukraine because the pipelines are going to be border able to military intervention It's not just only if Vladimir Putin you shut down the pipelines but those pipelines if there is a military conflict we can almost be certain that they may suffer damage It's just not something that goes well Natural gas pipelines and bombs use clothing around them But there perhaps the European Union is in a better position that the conventional wisdom say that a lot of the views of the European gas is based on what happened ten 15 years ago with Ukraine when they were supply problems And there was an interruption of surprising to Europe but since then the flow of Russian guys into the rest of the European Union had Beverly significantly their new pipelines And Ukraine is not any longer.

It nowhere joe biden also ended a news conference cut four where he said. Look i need some time. In regards to trump era trade sex sanctions cut four. When you're having these conversations with european how is. We're very concerned about these. How do you justify that. And what are your plans to twenty days. Gimme a break the time. Remember when he said. I'm going to build back better. We're going to hit the ground running by the way. He said that was really bizarre but he just like kind of and by the way he's been president for one hundred forty eight days. Okay those kinds of jack nicklaus thing by the way he went into the microphone talking about kind of like a shining type thing. We play that tape again. It's kind of like really weird. Play that again. When you're having these conversations with european allies who are very concerned about these sanctions. How do you justify that. And what are your plans to twenty days. Give me a break the time. Here's johnny like that's kind of what i feel like. When joe biden kind of was kind of a strange unpredictable. You never exactly know where he's going to go. Producer andrew says he sounds like bain from batman. No no. I'm going for the shining okay. Wendy home are enough of that. So then how did this one. We're the world leaders erupt in laughter as biden forgets that the united kingdom prime minister. Boris johnson already introduced the president of south africa during the me now in defensive joe biden. If joe biden was that president he would be probably assistant dogcatcher of some sort of kind of association of people in the villages or in boca raton. So forgetting that you introduce people. We should make fun of them. Of course back because joe biden is doing everything perfectly cut very unpleasant. I love this song. Our allies literally laughing at us in front of joe biden. But i don't think he even understands or has any sort then how about this one when a reporter asked some questions by way. We're doing just the kind of the quick recap of all of this and we're going to get back to this ladder putin thing because it's incredibly important vitamin putin thing kind of goes to show the absolute fraud of the outrage industry. That is the activists press and anytime they ever try to make us be angry or upset about something we say. Thanks thanks very much. We're not doing that. Thanks very little. We should say we had our entire national security conversation around ally that donald trump was compromised by the russian federation and then and then joe biden. Does the exact same thing that warranted outrage from john mccain where he said what john mccain say. I have the quote around here somewhere. Something foolish one of the most disgraceful performances by an american president in memory and again i'm not against de-escalation. I actually am in favor of speaking to vladimir putin. I hope our leaders tried to seek dialogue over tomahawk missiles. Lindsey graham by the way is losing his mind over this entire thing. Lindsey graham right now is is asking himself. Why didn't we send the aircraft. Carry over there and launch some. I don't understand. Why are we talking to the opposition. Okay i don't like that. I am for one thing that we should always try to have some form of a mission towards de-escalation especially when we have our true enemy the chinese communist party that is flying planes over taiwan. And if you if you if you actually go deep in a chinese news. I'm going to get into this in the next segment. I'm going to call it here. We'd only do these predictions every so often and they tend to sometimes unfortunately be true. There will be a conflict of china and taiwan in the next ninety days. There's something that's going to happen now. Taiwan its own sovereign nation. Its own island trying. It gets really upset about this. Because the chinese agent himself john cena dared even mentioned taiwan. That's where our focus should be in fact. I have a story here from one of the chinese Kind of dissident papers here missy with this one is here Trying to fly. Twenty eight military aircraft over taiwan airspace. This should be a fire alarm for any person that understands what this means. That's the true enemy by the way. Taiwan is not equipped to be able to protect themselves. That's going to be a test. Joe biden will joe biden mobilize united states aircraft carrier to defend taiwan against the aggression of the chinese communist party. I don't know but as we kind of do the joe biden g seven recap. What is the theme here. The theme that america's not leading. We know that america is obviously week. We know that joe biden is confused. Here's the real problem. Here's the real issue is that joe biden is compromised is that he's not making decisions. Based on what's best for the nation. He's making decisions based on what could possibly protect his family and his family interest from embarrassment or revelation. Look can i tell you something that really bothers me. When good people get scheduled for cancellation for no reason. That's what's happening to mike lindell. I was just with mike. Lindell with fifteen thousand. My closest friends in wisconsin and mike lindell was hosting an entire event and the media went after him. Like you wouldn't believe and they're trying to take my pillow out of every single store.

"At news, ninety three point one cave became an extraordinary scene, in Osaka, Japan today, between President Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin came during a photo op a reporter asking Trump, if he would warn Putin, who was sitting near him not to meddle in the twenty twenty US election, Trump said, yes. Turned Putin smiled and said, don't metal that was it. I talked with ABC news correspondent Andy Field. Andy. It seemed awfully light hearted, the didn't it? Was certainly considering the mullahs report. The fact that virtually every agency intelligence agency. The president has is taking election meddling very seriously, including both houses of congress, even people who are on his side in his party virtually none of them denied that Russia, tried to interfere in our last election and is actively trying to do it again in this next election. The president when asked what are you gonna talk about Putin? He goes, it's none of your business. And then when prompted by reporters of the twenty the president, jokingly said, okay, don't meddle in our election. And he wagged his finger. And then he looked at the Russian delegation, so don't meddle in our election.
