11:02 am
kaiser permanente hospital for my religious beliefs because i don't want to get a job. they deemed that my religious beliefs were not sincere. and i was upset about that because i haven't really sincere religious beliefs and convictions. and i wanted to get answers from the hospital as to some random h r person deciding that my livelihood was now going in jeopardy because they didn't believe that i really have sincere belief in my christian faith is kind of surreal, honestly, because i love my job and i has been a coven nurse for since the beginning with joe biden's, controversial workplace vaccine mandate. busy has now expanded to small businesses requiring all workers to get a vaccine or at least one p c. r. test weekly, panel. things for employers start at $14000.00 per violation and could rise to
11:03 am
$100000.00 need several state, several really opposed to measure unfair lawsuits against the biden administration . the requirements don't cover every one though. let's take a look at some exemptions to it. those include certain medical conditions, pregnancy, or religious beliefs. the last one, particularly challenging as the belief must be deemed sincere enough to justify the exemption. that means it will be up to employers in the u. s. to decide whether employees have a legitimate right not to get a job, the company that owns the hospital has suspended more than 2000 workers for refusing vaccination. it said they will be able to return to work as soon as they get a job. however, victoria un sensate, she's done everything necessary to keep stuff on patients safe, but her religious views were disregarded. i made a choice for myself and i think everyone is should have the freedom to make their
11:04 am
personal choice. i know a lot of people who did not want to get this vaccine but did it because they didn't feel they were pressured so much. they didn't feel like they could, could move for and they just went ahead and took it. and i respect their decision to their medical freedom. i respect people who don't agree with me. this is america . and it's a beautiful thing when you can disagree with each other, that's what freedom is. we don't have freedom if we don't have people that disagree . we should say that the u. n. and the w h o continue to stress the. the pandemic can only be solved through mass and occupation of germany has registered its highest ever a daily spike and cove. infections raising the prospect of tough new restrictions. more than 35000 cases have been reported in the past 24 hours. that is the world's 4th highest rate. the latest wave is taking a toll on hospitals. the number of patients in intensive care house search by 25

11:06 am
and the health services will be under extreme pressure again. around 67 percent of the german population is fully vaccinated, but the numbers coming forward has plateaued in recent months. fronting politicians to fear that a new type of pandemic could be upon us. we are currently experiencing a pandemic of the unvaccinated, which is massive. there would be few karone of ours patients on intensive care units. if more people would let themselves be vaccinated. the big worry now is that those people who haven't gone for a vaccination have no intention of doing so. and that may well lead to more restrictions on what people who haven't been jobs can do. if the pandemic situation in hospitals worsens than further restrictions for unvaccinated people are possible . some of germany, 16 states aunt waiting for a federal decision to be made and have already put in place new measures in the
11:07 am
very a mosque wearing will be mandated in schools. in the state of hassan, there's going to be a new testing system put in place for those going to visit hospitals, old care homes, and in the state of bottom votin book, where you're going to need to show a p c r test. if your room vaccinated and wants to go to a bar, a restaurant, or theater, german business leaders want the government to give them the rights to impose the so called 3 g system. that means that anybody who is in vaccinated recovered or tested could be bod, from employment. some of germany's biggest companies of already brought in controversial canteen segregation. employees who, being double jobs, can sit together and eats as normal. those who have knots or choose not to reveal their vaccine status must remain in a cordoned off area where masks have to be worn when not eating. chemical giant via told r t. they may even take this further. depending on specific facility needs,

11:09 am
months, peter, all of a hearty berlin pellets tick our attention to the u. s. where recent local elections, delta series of shock defeats for the biden administration, in new jersey, a self funded truck driver ice, the democrat as president of the state senate on there are increasing signs of a backlash again. so named woke policies. dmitri polk takes up the story while it's looking like a case of you reap what you sow, turns out, forcing progressive policies on people who don't want them, can lead to surprising results at the polls. case in point, the latest elections in the us, one of the biggest upsets, came from the state of virginia, where g o p. candidates, unexpectedly swept to victory and even established the 1st republican governor of virginia in over a decade. so let's climb that hill together. let's reinvigorate our future. let's
11:10 am
reiterate this amazing commonwealth of virginia. god bless you all, god bless to come. meanwhile, in other states, what was supposed to be a walk in the park for the democrats turned into a grueling battle with new jersey governor barely coming out on top to retain his seat. but if that wasn't already enough of a wake up call for democrats. what happened next in new jersey amounted to political earthquake, edward d'oeuvre, a truck driver who raised $10000.00, but apparently spent only a $153.31 on coffee and flyers managed to defeat the states. long time senate leader, democrat, steve sweeney, who had held his seat for over a decade and was considered the 2nd most powerful person in the state. it's like a movie script come to life. but how could something like this actually happen? well, the answer seems to be left. he policies. steve sweeney, has spent the last decade leading the effort to make new jersey the most tech state
11:11 am
in the nation. his defeat displays how garden state voters have rejected the socialist policies coming out of democrat controlled trenton and they're hungry for fiscal sanity once again. so it turns out that raising taxes the funding, the police and ramming critical race theory down school children's throats is not quite as popular as the left and biden's administration would have you believe what went wrong is just stupid woke this. i mean this, steve and the police lunacy this take abraham lincoln's name of schools. i mean that people see that it's, this really has a suppressive effect all across the country. and the democrats, some of these people need to go to a woke detox and throw something they're expressing a language that people just don't use and as backlash in of frustration of that. but while woke policies might seem like the likely explanation for why democrats lost so many seats, there are those who actually see the whole thing as a resurgence of white supremacy. even if the people elected are, you know, black,
11:12 am
it's not the messaging folks. this country simply loves white supremacy. white women are thrilled to have a cause in our lane that we can throw ourselves behind critical race theory, panic in which we can wring their hands about white children and obfuscate our white supremacy. this is what white women have done best since the fifties and will continue to do. dear media. republican voters are not excited by the issue of education. republican voters are excited by the issue of white supremacy. while identity politics doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, in the u. s. political landscape, it's safe to say that elections like the ones in virginia, new jersey, highlight the average americans feelings towards the left and biden's policies in particular. and it seems they want a long overdue change of tune. the domestic side is not good. i mean, i do not think the world politics is a direction to go. and we've even got disagreements within the democratic party
11:13 am
when it's almost like 2 different parties. you've got the progress, those. instead of pushing for one side, you've got modern on another side. and she's most qualified. i mean, they lost their unifying figure, the unifying figure with president trump and, and now they're still trying to run against president trumpet, who's not there. if things continue the way they are, i think you're going to see a huge, huge red wave. come come at the mid terms and you'll see both the senate and house flip. the bottom line is they need to listen to the people and what the people want . don't shut things down the people's throat that they're not interested in. and then they knew not believe, a court in france, sentence, the money will microns disgraced former body guard. and he's accused among other things of excessive force against the protester. and an incident captured on film that went viral back in 2018 on which was a serious embarrassment for the french president. let's get into the case on the
11:14 am
1st act with our corresponded in port charlotte duban, sky. hi charlotte. what else is he accused of? what did the court decide? well this is alexandra bonilla who as you mentioned was the deputy chief former chief of staff for president michael. this is the man who was chiefly organizing the protection of president mark on mainly during his presidential campaign, back in 2017 and then not 1st year and over, but he was in office. this is a man who is incredibly close to not just a manual, michael, but also to his wife, the cool to find him guilty of several offences including fruit to use of paper matic, passport. and as you mentioned, that assaulting to protest is during a made a protest. so this is something that, and back on the 1st of may, back in 2018 where bonilla had asked to go as an observer to watch what the
11:15 am
police do during a protest. these are protested, often turn quite violent at the fringes. and he said he wanted to see how the police carry out their jobs, but instead of just observing what happened, he got involved and then assaulted some of the protesters that was captured in the video. as you can now see, ah will be elise a was accused at the time of a cover up because it didn't report this incident to the police and been alice state in his job. in fact, this incident, oh, we came to light about 2 months later when that video and then video similar to that from different angles, were reported to revealed in the french press causing a political earthquake here in france. present mack on, in the end,
11:16 am
did or for this half hearted apology, which is 50. i'm proud of having hired alexander panella can see that he made a mistake, a real one, a serious one that felt like a betrayal. i told him so everybody makes mistakes. so the response must be in proportion with gov. this was a huge embarrassing for president mccord i just after a year after he had been elected given that during his campaign for that election, he had vowed to restore the public trust in public authority. here in france and there we had been all a gate which shattered all of that image during the campaign. now in another blow for president mack on another head of security was also convicted today of all so assaulting and roughing up protests. steering that same, make a protest, he's now received a 2 year sentence as well. and this is not just
11:17 am
a political earthquake that's been going on for the last 3 years. this is something that could now impact president macro. she possibly seek reelection in the next 6 months. those electrons moving very, very quickly. and this is coming totally the worst time for him because it will remind voters of an incident that almost brought my call and his government down the most embarrassing incident. perhaps of his presidency so far. it might indeed be very impactful. thank you very much for being this. throughout our t correspondents, charlotte to ben sky. this is our teeth still to come turned on its head. the dutch supreme court reverses a ruling which had ordered russia to pay $57000000000.00 to former shareholders have been not defunct oil change. if you can find out why, after the short, ah,
11:18 am
ah, ah, ah, ah, virginia has roared and democrats are really republican glen, young kens gubernatorial. when is nothing less than stunning? he is a political novice and not been trump, sarah. good. this bow other election will. how far reaching implications, and he couldn't signal the end of the biden presidency.
11:19 am
ah, ah, sir. oh, you're back with the news hour on rti, a 2014 ruling which ordered russia to pay billions of dollars compensation to shareholders of a now defunct oil giant has been overturned by the supreme court. the case centers around you, cars, which was previously owned by mikayla court cowski, once russia's richest. nun ortiz, murat darcy of explained. russia has welcome the dutch supreme court decision to uphold its appeal against the 2014, you cause ruling. this is, by the way, the biggest ever arbitration case a 100000000000 you cost shareholders wanted,
11:20 am
when they sued russia in 2005, they were awarded more than 50000000000 in 2014. but there have been plenty of twists and turns ever since russia has argued for many years that you cause shareholders have committed fraud. this is something that previously in its previous decision in 2014 court of arbitration. this is a matters refused to acknowledge the dutch supreme court. has thou said that it was wrong to refuse to look at this issue and that perhaps it is worth investigating? undoubtedly, there will be more twists and turns you call shareholders again demanding at tens of billions and compensation for what they say is russia unfairly dismantling you cost then a huge oil giant and seizing its assets. russia arguing that for many years you cause had evaded taxes that its leaders had committed multiple tax offenses,
11:21 am
another criminal act, and that russia acted by the law. the governor of florida has become the latest us politician to embrace the popular. let's go, brandon chant, the coated, dig up, president biden was then taken up by the crowd out irrelevant. when you look at the bite in the brand in administration, in terms of, oh, the, let's go. brandon job started entering in b. c reporter, apparently misheard nascar race funds chanting a vulgar insult, a job iden, a quickly went viral, 1st of sporting events, then an anti government protest, and i, politicians are getting in on the i o less galbraith, then they will you, he'll put america back where you found it,
11:22 am
leave it the hell alone. let's go. brandon. how you'll back? good. let's go. brandon. from the record levels of inflation to the crisis at our southern border. americans are fed up with biden's dangerous liberal policies. it really has taken on the life of its own on political commented or nicko house thinks about beyond the brandon jokes. there's a deep sense of disappointment with the biden administration among people who voted for while they play civility. civility politics, you have real people who are suffering from real problems, nbc put out a poll that show joe biden has about a 46 percent approval rating, which would be significantly less than what he's had throughout his presidency. once again, it has only been a year or less than a year, really. and so the fact that this chair becomes, as popularized as it has a and the fact that that coincides with his taking
11:23 am
a poll numbers. i think it's fair to say that people do really feel like that. i mean, you're, you from, from our perspective, there's not a single promise that joe biden has put out there that he is kept. i mean from whether, whether you wanna talk about before the campaign even finish, or in a week to week basis every he throws carrots and never actually does what he says he's going to do. and at that point, a lot of people just feel like, you know, you know, let's go brandon, the mainstream media, lisa, neo liberal, mainstream media's fault. this became a thing. and i feel like it's very representative of emblematic and emblematic of what we saw during the election every time joe biden would do something bad. they would try to whitewash whatever he dade, and pretend like it never happened. in fact, sometimes where to like it was a good day. a museum in the u. k has removed a picture of a war hero over his ties to slavery. lieutenant general sir thomas picton was the most senior british officer to die in the battle of waterloo in 1815. his portrait was on the slate national museum, wales and carter from worth on
11:24 am
a century well being regarded as a public hero. he was also known for his harsh treatment of slaves. now the museum commissioned a year long project, probing the legacy of thomas picked and on no plans to re display an reinterpret the portrait in a wrangling of the way he's presented for not, however, pickens portrait will be replaced. that decision many have reacted to negatively saying the past isn't black and white and we shouldn't try to hide what is inconvenient to explain. as a journalist, i feel uneasy about this element of censoring history should not picked and remain on display as a reminder to wales of an aspect of its past. no matter how disgraceful is that general sir thomas picked and killed in action at the battle of waterloo. in 1815 history is not yours, discard. history is there to learn from so the same thing never happens again. the museum should be ashamed of itself. sir thomas picton was the most senior british officer to day at waterloo, facing napoleon,
11:25 am
his teacher has just been removed from welsh, national museum. no time for heroes. one day all humans will be canceled. because once upon a time they were owning cars. on the museums collections director, thanks. the pictures, removal is an important step and re examining national collections. it's not the 1st time either pickens at related or it has been removed earlier this year, a cart of city council decided to put away her marble statue of him at city hall journalists, marcus stead. thanks. removing art is counterproductive. i am reluctant to judge people from the past by the standards we live by to day. i mean times have changed massively. even in the last 3040 years, the painting should be available in cardiff museum for the public to say visitors to safe a school expeditions for children to see. but there should be a plaque underneath it, explaining that this man's legacy is hugely mixed. he had an appalling track record in terms of his role as governor of trinidad, particularly in the treatment of the 14 year old girl. but also she showed
11:26 am
incredible bravery at the battle of waterloo when taking on the evils of napoleon and these things need to be put into a fuller context, the proper context. but at the same time, censoring people is not the solution. and censoring works of art is not the solution. the past doesn't disappear, just because you're taking down paintings or tearing literature or tearing down statues. you've got to confront these things, head on and put it into a proper context. and that's how you build bridges. and that's how you, you build a coherent society the british armed forces are wasting billions of pounds a year on procurement contracts. so sees a parliamentary spending watchdog. it comes up to the ministry of defense, received a substantial boost to its budget. the department system for delivering major equipment capabilities is broken and it's repeatedly wasting taxpayer money. we are deeply concerned about departmental witnesses, inability,
11:27 am
or unwillingness to answer basic questions and give a frank assessment of the state of its major programs. the department continually fails to learn from its mistakes the prob, single dollars a project to develop ajax armored vehicles describing it as a catastrophe. none of them are ready despite 4000000000 pounds of spending over the past decade. out of the 20 programs examined by the house of commons, committee. 13 are behind schedule. the ministry of defense has just defined the delay. sing. procurement is a complex challenge. but former military intelligence officer for the main gram, thinks the ministry needs to be more open about where all the money's going. the minister the fence has never been the best to trying to explain the money that is allocating in particular to its equipment program. but as, as some massive disasters and your historically the, the upgrade to the nimrod program. and more recently, as quoted in the guardian newspaper, the armies ajax, a recognizance vehicle,
11:28 am
and only 14 vehicles have been delivered and they are not fit for purpose, very, very large sums of money are split up into it being spent into a number of different financial years and if it isn't spent in that financial year or too much as needed one financial year, it causes the whole accounting system to become unbalanced. and then when programs run very over, cost or problems evolve in the programs like is happening with the armies ajax, that, that just adds another layer of complexity to it. the biggest changes that are needed in the system are you to take a business minded approach and bring proper business people in to negotiate contracts about professional individuals who understand complex project management them from a commercial procurement perspective. not nessie, just a defense perspective and can negotiate the contracts properly so that whenever the written, the liability lies with the supplier, not with a mr. offense, there for the taxpayer, them that something has to come in here before we go to break
