2:00 pm
to protect ourselves, noon ah, and a historic 1st and coordination with allies. the u. s. is releasing strategic all reserves to bring down federal prices of to failed, attempts to convince opec to boost production what i will never accept idiots who under the guise of we are dissatisfied and he's pure violence against people, but don't cry minutes to lack his hour to protest as of the nights of rioting against tough new coban restrictions, as cases surge unlocked down to re imposed across europe. and the lead to new york police survey shows the ball that half of the cities offices of which they had never joined the force. we hear about the growing crashes. we have elected officials who campaign on promises. we're going to actively prosecute cops, or what else could you possibly expect to happen? so they're going to take a step back in. this isn't going to make any ones they would say,
2:01 pm
ah hello, good to happy with his life for moscow, this is asking internationals, well, these are 10 with me calling bright 1st for you this hour in an unprecedented move . president biden has opened america's strategic petroleum reserve making available some 50000000 barrels through the coming months. with the details his callum open, the decision was made in coordination with other major energy consumers such as india, japan, and south korea in response to the fact that oil exporting countries have not made the decision to ramp up the oil supply as the biden administration has repeatedly request it now many have looked on and seen this is potentially a p r, move on the part of the biden administration to show that they are concerned about the economy and the rising oil prices. but as you can see on social media, it's kind of have the opposite effect. we see many voices speaking up and calling
2:02 pm
the move out and rages bite and releasing 3 days worth of oil. that taxpayers already paid for joe biden would rather dip into a strategic oil reserves and puts americans to work in the energy industry bite and gave away our biggest bargaining chip when he shut down domestic oil production. what incentive would opec caps negotiate when they know we have no or else to go? the price gouging is just beginning. this comes as 70 percent of the us public says they think the economy is moving in a bad direction. the approval ratings of the biden administration are not good. why didn't ministration has attributed the, the rise in gas prices and to the global oil supply, essentially not keeping pace with the world economy that is now recovering from the pandemic. now they've blamed other countries for holding back oil supplies, as well as energy companies for not passing along the decreases to the consumer. the by did ministration, has repeatedly called on the opec plus countries,
2:03 pm
led by saudi arabia and russia, and said that they should pump more oil in the hopes of getting the price down. opec countries that represent roughly 77 percent of the world's crude oil reserves . they have declined to do that essentially, and they're sticking to their plan for only modest increases. you know, you have to remember oil consumption in the states is roughly 18 to 19000000 barrels per day. so biden is essentially releasing about 3 days worth of oil. very gradually, over the course of the next 3 months. so at this point that we're failing to see any real impact on the oil prices are about the flagship fine. i'm sure the kaiser report says biden's move won't solve the underlying issues. it's never going to go down. we're only going to see oil prices rise now for the foreseeable futures, for years and years because of the mass of money printing that's gone on. remember,
2:04 pm
oil is priced in dollars in the us is printing trillions and trillions of dollars. they're basing their currency saudi arabia, their gal, our oil sale, the large, the world is actually running low on there. we're heading into peak oil. there's something we're talking about more 10 years ago before the fracking boom hit. but the fact is that the cost of getting this oil out and gas is nowhere near where it has been in the past. you know, america is, has policies of masking their problems by pointing fingers and creating diversions and releasing strategic oil reserves and to drop in the barrel. it will have no impact whatsoever. they're not addressing the true problem. europe's in the grip of another wave of covered with cases rising in germany in the netherlands in the 10s of thousands. it is tuesday, the w h. o said it's the continent number one cause of death. so thou, tough restrictions of being re imposed in several countries, sparking
2:05 pm
a public outcry in the netherlands at least a $130.00 people were detained as anti locked down. protests turned violent with the prime minister that calling those responsible idiots and external to me as a prime minister. as a liberal, i will always defend demonstrations in this country as part of our democracy, of our rule of law. what i will never accept is idiots who under the guise, if we are dissatisfied, he's pure violence against people who are working every day to keep it come to say a neighboring germany daily knew. corona virus cases of more than doubled over the last 2 weeks with health care workers warning that they are being pushed to the limit. nothing even needs. houston have been working here for 5 years, and the situation has never been as bad as it is now. we are completely overwhelmed with an incredible number of patients. we no longer have an intensive care unit. all this patients are waiting until best become available. eventually, patients that need to go and ventilators will be in the emergency department, rather than in the intensive care unit. there should actually be 7 nurses on duty,
2:06 pm
but we only have 4 and sometimes 3. it is not clear how we can take care of patients adequately instruct you and more now on the situation in germany, his, you're a correspondent. what is the serious debate zones away in germany right now? well, the, whether the country should follow australia is lead and making vaccines. mandatory austria will make that move from the 1st of february of next year. the debate in germany is really over whether it would be legal or not under the current constitution. there are other measures being taken though, in some regions in germany or imposing nighttime curfews saying you can't go out of your home after 10 pm. while this, if you've stood guard, becomes the latest region, the latest area to cancel christmas markets for the festive period. following on from the state of bavaria, the state of soc city and a number of other cities across the country. angular merkel has described this 4th
2:07 pm
wave of covert 19 as the worst thing the country has faced. while health minister n spawn has painted a bleak picture of the way he sees the current state of affairs, the shine issued and has been to us probably by the end of this winter as some time cynically said, pretty much everyone in germany will be vaccinated, recovered or dead. but it's true with the highly contagious delta. very. this is very, very likely. well in australia they are into the 2nd day of the latest national coven locked down. it will last for at least 10 days. could go on until the 13th of december. people there though, and people here in germany as well, have been expressing their concerns that the actions taken by the government haven't been the right one job with all the i don't believe it. all the locked down will be over after 3 weeks. not even for us vaccinations, but it is what it is for face too late. too late. especially the mandatory
2:08 pm
vaccination which should have been implemented earlier. not in february. we thought what did the last few months bring vaccinations were done? tests were done. distance was kept masked. floor and yet still the numbers rise high. i think its not nice because at 1st they said that it would open up, but then they built everything and then we are told that it must be close and cannot open in slovakia and the czech republic, covert cases are all so soaring. in fact, in those 2 countries from monday, extra restrictions have come into place barring the on vaccinated from hotels, bars, hair, dresses, and almost all public events. as the fear is that intensive care beds will be well, they'll run out of intensive care beds due to the sheer number of people the contracted coven. 19 a lawyer heights maya says the issue of mandatory inoculation is legally complicated. yeah, i lose duration for fast. some silly reason,
2:09 pm
all austrian lawyers specializing in constitutional law unanimously hold the opinion that's common. mandatory vaccination is permissible when the situation requires it. it means that mandatory vaccination is a suitable means to prevent serious threats to human health. looking at the current situation and what viral did you say about it? this is exactly the case. therefore, here, only when mandatory vaccination is formulated at the level of law. can we say whether or not is possible, but in general, it is permissible. on the other side of the world, there have been opposing rallies in australia that as people there turn out to support as well as protests covered restrictions. the authorities are trying to expand their pandemic powers, where the new bill to allow them to reinforce locked downs and vaccine mandates. once the state of emergency ends next month on the head of one region says that anybody opposing the mandates is an anti vac, sir. you are out there in any way, shape or form campaigning against this main that you are absolutely any tax your
2:10 pm
personal taxation status is only irrelevant. and the accusations continued to fly around. i discussed with a panel of guests whether governments are failing in their fight against cove it of course i can see why the people actress, drama protesting the feel. look at the background. brianna great will take a moment, crisis since 2008. that even deeper, 2020 in that, in that crisis that was brought forward measures against corona with which are not consistent in favor of the people. but for example, in favor of big companies. and then there is a kind of a lock down, which again is more hitting the small companies, the restaurants, the small casual industry. some of the protests that we've seen over the past week, they've been a little bit agitated, but i think by far the most ferocious has been in the netherlands with the police opening fire there. is that an appropriate response? i think it really depends on the circumstances that that police officer found
2:11 pm
themselves in if offices really genuinely did feel that i liked was threatened. and again, i wasn't there and we didn't see exactly what the situation was that i'd be fine. i could be justified. it does raise questions as to why offices didn't have less lethal means to combat people that are the media. and they have deemed riotous, you know, far more about this disease than we did 2 years ago for the alternative to lock downs and restrictions. so while the antibody levels go down, within 3 months, doesn't mean that the personal immunity is lost, but in fact, that the rate of transmission is not altered. so then the conceptually, the idea that you quarantine or restrict in some way, those who haven't been vaccinated, most of those who have doesn't have any actually impact on the spread. we've been told that her, the protest is our idiots there by the dutch prime minister, and that they are the 8 agents of violence. i do think a criticism of the demonstrators is misplaced, given,
2:12 pm
is really very draconian restrictions which are at any rate illogical. governments are facing recalled levels of mistrust, resort a survey how this would since he so dr. a. doctors and nurses well trusted, but it politicians were less trusted than any other member of society, record levels of rocks. and we've seen a very large factor and people not trusting the message of the government and actually not wanted to take up medical advice from it. so also has confirmed that britain will be sending troops to the poland, belarus border to help with the migrant crisis. there, but the u. k. government accused of failing to cope with an even bigger immigration problem at home, where the numbers of those try to cross the english channel traveling since last year, reporting from westminster here. shoddy. edwards dashti. well pretty patel. the home secretary is being accused of totally losing control of the migrant crisis on the english channel class. she's being accused of double standards when it comes to
2:13 pm
how the united kingdom protects borders. you remember 3 years ago, pretty protell said that she would make crossings on the english channel, an infrequent phenomenon. then later on more recently, she said she would shut off the route entirely, making it on viable. but what we see in this year is up to 25000 people have cross english channel headed to the british shoals. in the last few weeks, numerous occasions over a 1000 people have made that perilous journey. and very sadly, in recent weeks, around 10 people have lost their lives, making that journey too well. both sides of the english channel is simply blaming each other. what we're seeing is a slight tit for tat, coming from the british and the french basically a wall of words. but the united kingdom, as says at the french refusing to keep its word on a joint patrol mission, even though the u. k. has forked out around 54000000 pounds to try and help with this operation. but the french simply say, this is a british problem. and now the home secretary is almost back tracking on what she
2:14 pm
said, that this isn't a quick fix solution. this problem will take time to fix and that there is no silver bullet. the only solution is whole scale reform of our asylum system. so that the home secretary is saying that this isn't something that can be dealt with overnight. in comparison though, to the migrant crisis on the polish band of roost border, while the united kingdom got involved in that almost immediately as the crisis i was developing some weeks ago, the united kingdom deployed a small team to assist in the operations on the polish side what we're seeing more recently as an additional 100 troops will now help to reinforce the frontend and adding to one of this the u. k. as now signed an agreement with tone and missing even help build a wall to stop migrants from getting in. now this moral is expected to cost $1.00, billions, lockdown us around $300000000.00 pounds. it will be equipped with electronic
2:15 pm
surveillance equipment and topped with barbed wire to not that will be erected in mid 2022. now, the polish administration of thanking and welcoming the british forces to help tighten insecure its border. a border is and will be tight. we will insure poland security with the support of british troops. a company of british soldiers will be deployed to serve alongside polish soldiers as soon as possible, hopefully later this month. well, both campaign is on the left and right of politics here in the united kingdom are far from happy in slamming this move on the right. they say that the british government is essentially showing a double standards because it's not really dealing with the crisis on the english channel, but almost immediately it's trying to alleviate the crisis on the polish border, plus campaigners on the left will they to are condemning the government they say the british government shouldn't be sending troops to deal with a humanitarian crisis. it's not a military one. so why send the troops and particularly pay attention to the fact
2:16 pm
that these people are helpless. refugees fleeing west in it generated conflicts? so 2 issues here, very different issues regarding asylum seekers at the united kingdom is broiled in one here at home and one abroad, one though, we're seeing more rhetoric rather than action to try and deal with it. but then if we look over to the polish border, very, very different tactics being used by the united kingdom. some say though, a slippery slope that those tactics could then be deploy tear in the united kingdom to crushes, being placed on new york's police are so great. the half wish they'd never joined according to a linked internal survey ahead of the cities produced a lease, shooting and claims that new laws. tedious policies are punishing good cult new york city police offices a well past breaking point, a made de blasio and the outgoing city council as still piling on with policies that punish cops and
2:17 pm
a road public safety. the intolerable environment and our sub standard pay has every cop looking to get out as soon as they can. or his fears are shared by 56 percent of the cities offices. in a recent survey, the majority said they wish they'd chosen a different career, citing public distrust and disrespect and a lot even said that they're afraid to pursue criminals for fear of being sued themselves. the she has seen sweeping police forms in the city, curtailing the rights of the authorities to use force in order to restrain suspects . but even before those new policies came in, officers were already concerned by high levels of crime. and they believed that those levels of crime won't be coming down any time. soon. fact, almost 8 percent of respondents to this survey said there wouldn't be any improvement in the city safety, at least in the next 2 years. and look at the figures, crimes already of 15 percent since august and respond to the m y. p d says that it is taking the poll results into account as it tries to make the department more effective. when i spoke with one officer that he says the cops like
2:18 pm
him have become increasingly stigmatized. every cops i speak to in the y p v just feels that everyone is against them from the public to the elected officials, to the mayor, to even the higher ups be, in my opinion, just feel like there's no right they can ever do valuable crime. fighting tools like stop question frisk were taken away. you know, legal options for people who want to su, police were expanded, you know, every, every elected official now has a platform. they want to go directly after police. this isn't gonna make anyone safe, was going to make cops apprehensive and empower, embolden criminals. as we've seen, the, the poll didn't surprise me or didn't surprise while long foresman, experts at all. you know, like i said, we want to have programs like defun, the police, which are directly going after cops. you have elected officials standing up and they should more empathy towards hard and criminals then towards the police that actually would incorporate criminals. you know,
2:19 pm
we have elected officials who campaign promises. we are going to act that we prosecute cops or what else could you possibly expect to happen? cuts on going to want to go out there risk their future, their, their family, their, their financial will be. so they're going to take a step back and this isn't going to make anyone's, they would safer with our fee for moscow still ahead, francis having a run in with the a, you know, after i met with a live youth group will tell you why among all stories after the break ah ah ah
2:20 pm
ah ah ah with oh well it shows the wrong one 03. just don't hold any new world yet to see proud disdain, to come to the african and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah, hello again, there's
2:21 pm
a simmering route between paris and the e. u right now was outraged. french politicians criticized a meeting between the e u. equality commissioner on a group, the france brands islamist, they met brussels as part of an anti discrimination campaign, but paris calls the talks abnormal moral not next, from charlotte to belsky. well, the european commission has found itself in the dog house with france, with french ministers blowing up over a meeting that was held last week between the commission and a muslim youth organization. several high profile ministers here in france really blasting the fact that that meeting took place saying that the commission, which met with this group called famous so was meeting with an islamist association that has been attacking france level this he did were referring to the matter to the commission in order to find against this islamist associations that are attacking france and are infiltrating, are very institutions. it is absurd. indeed. we are now approaching the european
2:22 pm
commission. don't let anything go. why is this great cause such as well? it's done so on several levels. it's been around for about 25 years. and in the last decade or so, it's apparent you received 3 lots of funding directly from the european commission frenchman this is also say has links with the muslim brotherhood. this is a group that is being designated as a terror organization by several are countries and has been banned in those countries. france says one by meeting with families. so it's given the commission is given, it's a platform that it shouldn't have. and to why financing it, it's financing womic extremism. but feminist has also caused some other upsets here in france, just in the last few weeks on its website. it said it was part of an anti discrimination campaign that was financed by the council of europe. now that
2:23 pm
campaign focused on women wearing he jobs were being discriminated against, which is a very sensitive topic here in france that cause such a theory. the french government actually protested against campaign on the plug was pulled on it. now at the time feminist. so was furious, the thought that happened and said, but france was the country that was exporting the moose racism. you're seeing that the french state is really behind this smear campaign, the censoring of the human rights campaign. and we are seeing that family. paris is currently the capital of western prejudice. now the commission has denied that fantasy has received any money, but all she has seen a written statement from 2015 shows that at least in 2012, the group received funding just over 70000 euros famous. so for it's part didn't know i use it, it has any links to the muslim brotherhood,
2:24 pm
and it says it's appointed the french minutes. this taking the time to essentially de, legitimize the work that a dove. but it does appear that frances north, back to back down on this particular topic. in fact, there is a suggestion that very soon feminist could find itself on the list of banned organizations. hearing from the criminal defense chiefs warned of a massive increase in u. s. strategic bomber activity around russia's borders, including particularly disturbing drills, testing nuclear weapons, use sort of a sugar made the revelation and talks with his chinese counterpart across the story . for us is ortiz donald quarter. it looks like both russia and china are ready for deeper cooperation when it comes to mutual defense. and that's because the united states, as posturing itself as a military full of both powers. i mean, it's no secret that china isn't happy about american naval operations in the south china sea, or washington's claim that taiwan is separate from the mainland. as for russia,
2:25 pm
it looks like the u. s. is taking a more nuclear approach. let's take a listen to what the russian ministry of defense had to say. whether this is, were due this month during the us global thunder. strategic forces exercises tend u. s. f or strategic bombers practice options of nuclear weapons use against russia almost simultaneously from western and eastern directions. based on what was spoken about at this meeting, it looks like the u. s. military aggression is actually bringing us is actually bringing russia and china closer together. the chinese defense minister at the meeting said that the u. s. is using the same aggressive military actions against his country as it is against his russian counterpart. we did hear from the russian defense minister again, who outlined what some of those actions entailed admissions issue. then lucia records a significant increase in the activity of us strategic bombing ation. in the past month, around 30 flights to the borders of the russian federation have been made,
2:26 pm
which is 2 and half times more than in the same period last year. that's likely adjoining of these 2 eastern powers wasn't exactly what washington expected to result from its increased nuclear posturing. either one of them is a serious a is a forced to be reckoned with for washington. but both of them together that could be a major obstacle for u. s. foreign policy. unless you live now to form a pentagon security analysts, michael maloof, welcome back to i'd say, how do you think washington's going to be viewing this growing military closeness between moscow and beijing? well, they shouldn't be surprised at all. when you consider that, since the disasters pull out of afghanistan, the united states as once again, been trying to agitate on the, on the western front with, with nato and in the black sea area. and now in the, in the pacific, somehow to try and rectify it's abysmal failure in after 20 years,
2:27 pm
an afghan to stand. and i'm afraid that the united states is beginning to overreact and, and you cannot blame russia and china now, which is actually had some closeness, military closer requite some time to decide to band together and deal with this constant. irritant. this is a, this is a political issue for the united states to continue agitating where, where it's not necessary. and i think that it's going to begin to have some, a negative repercussions on us policy. us policy was such a failure in afghanistan. how do we expect us policy to succeed in this type of agitation in the black sea and in the, in the pacific? after all it was, it was the united states that, that, that created the problem in the ukraine. and where is that gotten this? and so, and then, and then the united states complaints this concern about russia and build up on its
2:28 pm
own soil when it comes halfway around the world with its own armed forces just on the border it's, it's literally, it's lunacy. is there a chance that there could be some sort of policy switch at the white house to stop what your critic is saying is provocative behavior against russia and china is a policy of runaway train. now, i think it's, it biden hasn't as, as bob gates once said in a book, biden hasn't been right on one foreign policy issued 40 years. this is no exception . and i think we can expect the same. again, i point to the disaster in afghanistan that sets the tone for the direction of u. s. policy. and, and there is nothing that is going to a try and that will reverse that, that, that concern. and already we're seeing that flounder lay don't know what to do with the, with the black in the black sea or in china except,
2:29 pm
except military confrontation. this is all that the united states as calm to be known for. and this is got to change, but unfortunately you have a meal conservative in this administration and also within the republican administrations that continued to agitate for a military solution to impose its own version of democracy throughout the world. and that's what we're seeing once again. okay, good, happy thoughts on this, michael, and thanks for joining us again from a pentagon security analyst, michael miller. thank you calling. can you join scott? he now he is naughty america, same for 30 minutes to dissect the days news agenda off to which i'll be here to update you on all these ad line stories. ah ah. ah.
2:30 pm
back either financials a while ago. no, they say my, there's a girl i wanted to do think central pack support dot com is going to call them right now. and they stop the madness. ah, bradford, he has drunk in wisconsin at a christmas break, or a man with a long criminal rap sheet. was out on bond, decided to probably dest tv directly, and to martyr will bring you the latest is sally. the death hole continues to rise, and we try and learn more about what actually motivated the driver. and we do know the motivation. however, behind a high end crime spree in san francisco, making the chief of police a question. there are no prosecution for minor theft policy and some storage.
