8:04 pm
attempted assassination attack is actually a false flag by the prime minister to try and divert attention away from the way his government handled those protests. the prime minister has ordered a probe into the caches and at the same time, he has also to compensation to the victims. now we have started receiving international reaction to the attempt assassination this morning. we have heard from some kenny, who is the secretary of the red national security council, and he has condemned the attack saying that it can be traced back to foreign interference. he says that foreign is not to be blamed for insecurity discord and instability in the country. that has seen foreign news of support, both terrorist organizations and the occupation of iraq. at the same time the united states has weighed in, they condemned the incident. they also offered assistance in the investigation. the u. s. of course,
8:05 pm
is busy with doing it for me. and has the deadline by the end of this year by which to finish doing this, we are following the reported drone attack. these apparent act of terrorism, which were strongly condemn, was directed at the heart of the rock estate. our commitment to our iraqi partners is unshakable. the united states senate with the government and people of iraq. kristen colton, that he's come to rep, particularly now and lead the u. s. military withdrawal. and that is why washington is watching events so carefully. the united states was among the 1st countries to praise the results of last month election. so of course, they will be particularly concerned and how things are developing their jamal came as a professor of history and international relations at the lebanese university in beirut, he says, the assassination attempt could have been designed to send a message. this bomb being 1st could be false lagging on behalf of some group to be taken by the prime minister as
8:06 pm
a justification for the crack down on demonstrations. this could also be a message by some groups who lost the parliamentary elections to the prime minister, who is open to the supported by the united states who came to power. and so do usually the way it happened and, and these kind of what you meant by the united states to their troubles and iraq and the united states to make it like ever leading site for iran. and it's also it's black and ukraine to make ukraine a bleeding site for russia to be needing side for syria. so this is the global american. this was why the americans manipulated the election

shares and the german company and joint developer of the pfizer coven vaccine, bio and tech have plunged 20 percent and follow several setbacks, including a whistleblowers report in the british medical journal, pointing to serious flaws in last year's vaccine. trials are easily, per tranquil, can tell us more. how many people do you know, who are sick and tired of daily debates about vaccine safety? well, i know quite a few and you know, what really gets me fired up about these conversations. quite often, those who do most of the talking have next to 0 expertise in the relevant science concerning medical trials for example. but what about when those who really do know better south the alarm over possible issues? earlier this week, one respected medical journal published an investigation in which you could read things like this. one employee said she had worked on over 4 dozen clinical trials in her career, but it never experienced such
8:08 pm
a healthy skill to work environment. as we've been tabio on pfizer trial, i don't think it was good clean data. the employee said of the dates of ins. harvey generated for the pfizer trial. it's a crazy mess. those are some pretty serious concerns. but let me give you the full picture. these were comments that the journal received anonymously from former employees of one of the firms tasks with carrying out the pfizer vaccine trial vent avia. the authors got in touch with them while investigating the claims of a whistleblower, who worked for ven tabio for a couple of weeks before being fired, supposedly in connection with sounding the alarm over. quite a list of issues including things like this. the, the,
8:09 pm
the, the whistleblower provided the journal with internal company documents, photos, and audio recordings to back up her concerns. i do have to say though, we've not seen them in the article or received access some other way. and obviously it wasn't up to us to supervise an american contract or on a pivotal trial of one of the world's most widely known jobs. the question is, did the u. s. government agency in charge the food and drug administration know about any of that? we didn't know was jackson received an email from the f d a thanking her for her concerns and notifying her that the f d. a could not come in on any investigation that might result. a few days later, jackson received a call from an inspector to discuss her report, but was told that no further information could be provided. she had nothing further in relation to her report. the right people apparently did no, or at least were notified that that lead to any oversight of the company by the

regulator. the answer is no. on the contrary, the watchdog was instead quick to greenlight, pfizer for emergency use in america. in 5, this briefing document submitted to an f. d. a advisory committee meeting held on the 10th of december 2020. the company made no mention of problems defense obvious sites. the next day they issued the emergency use authorization of the vaccine. a few more details that like disconcert a summary of the a inspections of pfizer vaccine trial sites said that 9 of 153 had been inspected. but none of those had been operated by vent army. and no expection had been conducted at all in the 8 months between the emergency authority ation. and the full approval. pfizer has since hired been tabi, up as a research subcontractor to work on for other clinical trials,

the use of the coven vaccine, and children and young adults. a cobra, 1900 trial involving pregnant women, and a trial of cobit 19 booster doses. this is a global pandemic in a global pandemic. we have a duty. this is the important bed. we have a duty. we have an up must duty to look after other nations. it is a clear example of we look after ourselves in the 1st instance, and we are not very interested in the welfare, the well being. the recovery of other countries of cause profit is the biggest motive here. and it is an example of protecting their financial prospect in the future. ok, not an expert. and maybe the trials were actually properly conducted. maybe someone was just not a big fan of the u. s. pharmaceutical giant. but what i want to be confident about is that someone competent,
8:12 pm
whose job is to have these trials under control actually does his or her job to the fall. or at least mentions reports on possible red flags. we contacted pfizer, inventor via for comment on the claims as well as posing further questions to the us food and drug administration. but they have yet to respond to our inquiries. dr . randy brought a consultant, physician for britons. any chess things vaccine development has fallen victim to corporate greed by that has for me this by no means the 1st time that i've been found to be acting in a way in which you can really say that the commercial interest is compromising bay to nicole and research objectivity judgment, what this really shows that it's been developed above the acceptable speed of signs, of course that of applied and more people to the trolley kind of adequate stop to run the trial in appropriate way is a constant commercial pressure even with a sub contractor to make profit, so to have fewest off and generate results more quickly and cut corners. in this way, commercial interest is pressuring, you know,
8:13 pm
what would be the best way to treat the pandemic. and the best way to develop the drug such as in canada, have ruled that a comedian who joked about a disabled teenage singer did not breach the youngsters. right to dignity. comic mike ward hailed the decision by the supreme court as part of a growing backlash against cancel culture. i'm like, oh j. i one. this is a vest, i'm so happy. i think this is a good sign for comedy. i think this means the pendulum is about to swing the other way. comedians are going to be able to keep on doing jokes. i would want to tell him about how i felt when i 1st heard that think joke as a 13 years old to just think about gang because a 40 year old men say so that you should die. the now 24 year old singer jeremy gabriel was born with a birth defect that causes scull abnormalities. he found fame in 2006,
8:14 pm
and even performed for pope benedict. some years later mike ward began mentioning gabriel's disabilities in his performances and defended his act by saying that people shouldn't be afraid to joke about any subject. gabriel family filed the human rights complaint, but canada's highest court said that the singer was targeted not because of his disability, but because of his fame. and while mister ward support received support from the comedy world, others still believe such jokes must fakes face consequences. we had a lively discussion about it here on our team with the panel breasts. you know, i, i agree with the court's conclusion. i mean that they acknowledge said that this was a nasty thing that was said. but you know, it doesn't go as far as to, you know, have a legal financial consequences for this person. when mister work comes to your town, you have the option to not buy a ticket. you can ignore his podcast. you have the right to do all those things,
8:15 pm
but should he be prosecuted in a court of law that takes it a bridge way too far. in my opinion, we have to sink about. he was a child, he was 13 years old. and i truly believe we should safeguard our children more because especially in this case it was not only a child, but he was and he still is disable. so, you know, the must be a stall between hatred and comedy between violence, you know, and free speech got to charge and, and fired a guy, tens of thousands of dollars for a joke, comedy and joking. and freedom of speech is a human right. when did this change? this is nuts to me and, you know, i have to disagree with the, the woman who spoke before. but this, he was not making fun of his disability. he was primarily making fun of people who thought the kid was so weak that you couldn't comment and make fun of
8:16 pm
his singing is still alive. he the only thing that from with is it looks a little different. and he, you know, yes to where a hearing aid i, we shouldn't be treating people like so differently. i mean, have some respect for the guy. he's not some weakling that you need to defend like this. first of all, he was violence. verbal violence towards a child that was 13 years old and disabled child. i don't care if it was an address in his disability. he was suicidal after that. and you can be free to say whatever you want him be buying renting every way you want in that and you know in your job, i'm an interpreter. you might treat my disable, you know, employee like that. i would go to court to because that consequences for every one of us to what we do in our life. okay. natalie speech is an action. no one's saying there should be consequences. what the argument is, the consequence should not be you being by tens of thousands of dollars and not be centrally, not allowed to criticize someone. well, i just want to say this in response to that,
8:17 pm
a lot of comedians and i would like to think i'm one of them. it's possible for us to have 2 thoughts in our head at the same time. thought number one, that's a joke that a lot of us would never make. i personally would never make a joke like that. that's me. but another thought that i am also able to have in my head at the same time is i can see the dangerous slippery slope of having legal consequences for someone who chooses to make such a joke. even if i find it incredibly poor taste. and you know, free speech is just a virtue that i think it's very important and without it, i certainly wouldn't have a job. world leaders make big promises over climate change at cop 26. as protesters on the ground, including gret thornburg, say it's all hot air that story and mark after the short break. ah,
8:18 pm

8:19 pm
show business. i'll see you then. ah ah oh come back. now it may be an attempt to save the world from climate change, but the huge cop $26.00 summit in scotland is not impressing grad thornburg. the swedish activist lashed out at the event while addressing crowds at the fridays for future march and glasgow. it is not a secret that cup $26.00 is a failure. it should be obvious that we cannot sold a crisis with the same methods that goes into it in the 1st place. protest events have been held around the world to coincide with cop $26.00 with demonstrators
8:20 pm
echoing gretta thornburg's call. busy for those in power to take action. ah ah ah. the cop 26 conferences now into it's 2nd week kicking off the event, the british prime minister warned of a doomsday scenario while the american president vowed the u. s. would lead by example in the fight against climate change. one of the world's biggest polluters, india announced a net 0 target by 2070. although that's 2 decades later than many had been hoping
8:21 pm
for. while there were also many calls for more money to be handed to developing countries to help with their transition to other energy sources and on that issue are t. saskia taylor has been looking at how complying with emission goals may not be that simple for nations heavily dependent on fossil fuels. hope $26.00 his hair and it is going to save us from doomsday. i've a 100 wild need, is a setting out their goals for the future and that big ones. stop deforestation switched to renewables. 0 emissions and ohio electric nasty thing nature like a toilet we are digging our own grapes. humanity has long since run down the clock on climate change. it's one minute to midnight on that doomsday clock and we need to act. non client change has already ravaged oral. we only have a brief window up here for us to raise your,
8:22 pm
our vision to raised me to task. sounds great. the question is, who pay the biggest price for all these politicians patches? it's easy for both chad and co promised to turn off the light when they leave a room. but for others half way around the world, saying no to fossil fuels is a luxury. they just can't afford. if every car we leave is there reason any call? we don't leave one pass and an eastern india set up, but over 4000000 others all over the country would likely agree. because that's how many people rely on coal to keep a roof over their heads. and food on that pates the issue goes well beyond india, though, the developing ward a live industrialization stage, then you'd be what we call one space. our time. we don't that they will not be able to lift their societies out of poverty, coal consumption and coal as a basis for the livelihood will remain a fact for some time. in fact,
8:23 pm
tens of developing countries have come together terrified of what the grand goals of 0 emissions made up by rich nations will mean for them. this new goal, which has been advanced, runs counter to the parish agreement, and is until i equity and against climate justice demands for net 0 emissions. for all countries by 2050 will exacerbate further the existing inequities between developed and developing countries. it's not just the developing nations struggle as it is with fossil fuels. it's not just that millions of jobs will be lost so that millions will be punched into poverty. now it's also that these nations are asking, why are we paying for greedy gonzalez? far away? the top 10 percent of countries consume 20 times more energy than the bottom 10 percent, and 1100000000 sub saharan african share the same amount of power generation capacity. as germany's 83000000 people,
8:24 pm
video gamers and california consume more electricity than entire nations. you won't hear anything about that, a cop 20 sex. and remember, when times were tough, winter was coming. a gas was running low in europe. funny how no one was shouting about being a dirty source of energy when they begged for the tops to be turned back on. but you will hear them say they won't finance fossil fuel projects in developing countries. why? because it's far away and won't affect whether that warm on a chilly december night. though if the budget can stretch, they might lend a helping hand to ease the pay. we want to do more to help countries around the world, especially developing countries, accelerate their clean energy transition, address pollution in the sure the world. we all must share a cleaner shafer health plan and we have an obligation to help make no mistake. this is not a judgment on green energy. the goals of those gathered in glasgow are undoubtedly
8:25 pm
noble. that do the politicians. so desperate to be seen as the leaders who saved the pallet realize what that p are friendly slogans actually mean for millions of people. far away, and even if they did what they do, anything differently, there are some countries are to actually have a small population, but are consuming a lot of energy. an image, a lot of are capital carbon. people can see all around, most of the rich countries. it's not clear that they're really going to be themselves of it from coal, and i don't think that they are very realistic targets will not make the 2015 batteries accord targets yet. so i think there's a lot of bluffing going on here. and i don't mean a lot of the, you know, the commitments are the pledges being made by rich countries. penya has reopened a criminal probe into the heretic murder of a woman, allegedly by a british soldier. the single mother was beaten, stabbed and dumped into
