7:00 am
ah ah, the headlines here were naughty international twitter faces of biology of accusations that are doing the u. s. government bidding. it's off to the social media giant work with a washington think tank in suspending, more than 3000 accountants from 6 countries for alleged state back to propaganda. the u. k. is a royal college of midwives, apologizes for new inclusive guidelines describing mothers as quote, post natal people, a one former and a chest nurse tells us a vocal minority has hijacked this conversation. is he yet to now, for example of stem role going in with diversity offices and telling people how to reset their thinking fan base. and then the landmark ruling, a woman born with a spinal defect, wins her case against
7:01 am
a doctor who 20 years ago failed to advise her mother properly about having children. so in the program, august debate the case because what i do now with medicine now in 20 years time, we may judge my actions, the doctor has company wrong. but there is something rather bizarre about somebody, shane, and i mean this is a sensitive like i wish i would never been born ah, your saturday afternoon headlines live from moscow. this is auntie international. welcome to your program. concerns are being raised over social network, twitters possible ties to the u. s. government. that's off to the tech giant suspended more than 3000 accounts from 6 countries, including china and russia, over alleged state sponsored information operations. now twitter,
7:02 am
its decisions on which accounts to suspend were made with the guidance of the australian strategic policy institute. it's a think tank that sponsored by u. s. government agencies including the department of defense. so a correspondent, daniel hawkins. now delves deeper into the institutes, activities. it's common knowledge that trusts in conventional media is falling. you know, when you ask someone where they get their news on late reply, i don't watch tv. i'll do my own research or get my news off social media. that's fair enough. that least with normal news, you tend to know who's sponsoring it, be it's a government or corporation. and you can make your own conclusions. but when you see who's behind an organization claiming to be independent and non partisan draw through to help provide independent analysis to stop social media manipulation, world, anyone would have a few questions. it's not like the australian strategic policy institute hide the fact they're sponsored by the u. s. government or some of the biggest names in the military. industrial complex. the long list is there for all to see is just when so
7:03 am
much funding comes from the sources. one does wonder just how independent and balanced they can be. even former australian officials have concerns about the things thanks output echoed by some current lawmakers. surely it's fair to subject aspect funding arrangements to scrutiny. se receives core funding a $4000000000.00 from the department of defense. again, the thing thank makes no secret of its anti china stance and the list of works on their website. in fact, china is a key target of the organizations works from human rights in shin gan to chinese tech systems influence projects or this information in social media. many funded by the u. s. department of state and defense. their definition of independence may be malleable to say the least. an a s p, i are good at what they do, at least for their defense, industry,
7:04 am
sponsors. the numbers say it all since the think tank was founded 20 years ago. weapons manufacturers have collected tens of billions of dollars in government contracts prior to the cobit pandemic. the organization hosted dozens of events, some bringing it together. key players in defense and politics, providing the opportunity for closed door discussions with government departments and agencies. the s p i is so heavily involved with foreign governments and political organizations. it's even registered with the australian governments. forward inputs transparency register. many were so pleased with the think tanks work. their funding to the organization has grown significantly year on year as have their funds from sponsorship and commercial revenue under the direction of executive director peter jennings. who is himself clear where the blame for increasing tensions lies. militarize in the south shawnasee, posing china's authoritarian control in hong kong, threatening taiwan and japan on
7:05 am
a daily basis. china is the strategic problem in the region and back to the point. the thing thank is now partnered with the social media joint, helping to decide and coordinate what information users have access to and what is sensitive so much for an opponent, analysis and serving the public conversation is little wonder that some question whose interests does this really serve but a twitter stretches that its goal is to ensure the integrity of public conversation . alessandra bruno and independent political analysts says there's much more to it than that. there is a climate of tension of geopolitical tension already surrounding that. so it's not surprising that twitter is very happy to comply to the you the, let's put at the u. s. mainstream or the deep state view. i'm not surprised at all that they cooperating with an institute such as the australian,
7:06 am
and that's not the only one there. cooperating with the perhaps they chose australia to appear independent, but they don't expect independent advice. they're looking for the kind of view that reflects we ultimately be american view. how different is the trillion view from the american right now? considering that they have just joined our course, that institute is much more closely aligned to langley in virginia, where i'm located, that it is to twitter users wanting independent information in the u. k. the royal college of midwives has said, sorry for its latest supposedly inclusive guidelines which make no reference to women or mothers, but only to post natal people responding to complaints the college called it an oversight in one form. and i just know we spoke to. so there's not the unions role to tell midwives what the think it's profit guilty is why they apologize because of
7:07 am
the instantaneous backlash. health services set up to be a safe environment for this normal process is natural process to happen. it is not the moral college of midwives role to tell them, make wise how to think and, and i'm afraid that this is yet another example of stonewall going in with diversity offices and telling people how to reset the thinking of their members. the midwives union withdrew their gender neutral guidance after an online backlash . the instructions for and as staff on how to put newborns to bed safely, they did not mention women at all referring rather to parents and carers. the guidance was supposed to be l g b t inclusive, but it didn't go down to well with every one. how can you possibly rise about pregnancy and birth without mentioning women? that's deliberate, not an oversight. apparently the royal college,
7:08 am
a midwife says midwives need to call mothers postnatal people, not mothers or women. so to all you ladies out there, you are a postnatal person, not a mother. i. right. how did the royal colleges meet wives? forget about women? they are the sole reason you even exist. a former and a chest nurse, rebecca butler says that neither the general public nor transgender people even support this idea. people don't want to replace the word series, a very, very vocal minority. and a very effective act to this group in stonewall who want to rewrite the rules by which we live. i don't know who they think they're appealing to, because the person in front of the midwife is a biological woman. why the world college has midwives, has chosen to adopt policies advocated by stonewall, is
7:09 am
a market for them to answer. but my point is that the general public does not support base midwives do not support it. actually, neither does the transgender community. it is one organization that is pushing it to gender so hard. i mean, getting it very, very badly. a mother is a mother and the role of the midwife is to ensure the mother's safety and the baby safety. and that is the end of their role. they should not be involving themselves in this sort of ridiculous political posturing. a young woman where the spinal defect has successfully sued her mother's doctor for giving her bad advice 20 years ago before her pregnancy. in a rather landmark ruling, the you guys high court agreed that his failure to tell her to take supplements amounted to negligence. ab toombs overcame her condition to become a para show jumping star. though she has to spend days at
7:10 am
a time connected to tubes. and the judge said that this could have been avoided if her mother had been told to take folic acid, both before and during her pregnancy. in accordance with official guidance provided with the correct recommended advice she would have delayed attempts to conceive in the circumstances there would have been a later conception which would have resulted in a normal healthy child. the doctor in question denies the allegation, saying he provided all the necessary instructions 2 decades ago and we discussed what precedent the ruling sets with august. so john gone to radio host and columnist and dr. dean e, get a gp this taste we're talking about was 20 years ago in year 2001 i think it was. and around that sort of time we too would probably have been giving advice off. well, if your diet is rich and go to cast it, keep i don't keep doing it don't necessarily mean to supplement. so again, it's really hard to judge what happened back in 2001, based on the standard that we have today. can you really bring fun? you can, because it's up, but can you bring the case 20 years after so many poor afford?
7:11 am
i mean, this isn't for linda mind where somebody was given, you know, a tablet. it isn't that kind of situation. this scenario shows that you're going to have to take a long time in the future to very clearly document the advice we give and more importantly, actually the advice that we don't give. so it's kind of a significant plan to put on time. one of the other big challenges that often documentation, it's about how you are judged because of course, what i do now is medicine. now in 20 years time, we may judge my actions as a doctor as completely wrong because as time progresses and we learn more, our practices progress. one of my worries would be for doctors that they would on the side of caution. now i'm back start recommending for other both difficulties may be abortion. i'm thinking particularly of down's syndrome babies when we do know that they, these people can go on to lead very successful lives as well as the have to be aligned somewhere,
7:12 am
doesn't matter because of course we recognize that and patients name, same details of medicine. it's our job to teach them. busy to bring them on that journey to get them on boats and we can make decisions to get that to treat the problem. but if we're saying and all that common sense stuff to falls into the lap of the doctor to have to deal with and say, well, come on, doctors responsibility to tell you how to live your life. what to do. not only they are responsible for prescribing, but also responsible for telling you how to live healthily and if you don't have healthy that doctors all. and that's an impossible situation to doctors to work it . we do need perhaps now in the light of this we need to put some safety guidelines in there goes to the patient and for the doctor. i mean, i do find it incredible that 20 years after this, the doctor is in this position with his whole life ruined by still of immense sympathy, obviously for a lady involved as well. you know what, we're already in that position of jeopardy because that's exactly the situation we,
7:13 am
dr. david moment. for example, if i was to give patients and advice today and the patient doesn't necessarily follow that advice, doesn't necessarily come back to see me again, like i asked them to do. and then sadly they developed a severe illness and they come back and see me and say, well, the doctor found it. my argument back would be, well, you didn't come back to me like ask you to or you didn't do the things that i asked you to. nonetheless, i will have to go through the process of call. i just think this is a really tragic case. and i wish you had never come to court a wish the evie had got the help and the assistance she needs. but there is something rather bizarre about somebody saying, and i mean, this is a sensitive why. i wish i would never been born. plenty more still to come here on saturday program, england is facing what one top surgery describes as the country's biggest ever cancer catastrophe. well, that story and many more way back in about one minute's time. ah
7:14 am
ah ah mm. it's in their interest for some financial pond is to say the value of the currency lose value because they can gain traction on social media saying it's somehow a good thing, but not everybody is an undertaker. not every one is a grave robber. you know,
7:15 am
some people are actually out there trying to be productive and productive lives. and of course, that philosophy of, oh, the currency has gone to 0 and less than 0. and that's a good thing is this is the, is a mat lewis. oh i caught a box down here at moscow. a violent attack by militants in west africa. marley has now left 31. people confront dead. a local authority, save many more. i'm missing. armed men, apparently open fire on a bus, taking people to the mock. it becomes a day after a un peacekeeping convoy was attacked, killing one civilian worker and wounding another of the un mission in the country says that most terror attacks. and molly, are perpetrated by local affiliates of i solon al qaeda, a hero. nazi what bring you more updates on the latest attack as they do coming to us here at moscow. for now, more than 700000 potential cancer cases had been missed in england during covert.
7:16 am
that's according to a government watchdog report. a leading surgeon says to finding reflects the country's biggest ever cancer catastrophe. well, the report also found that one in full cancer patients have been on waiting lists for months and up to 60000 missed their 1st treatment due to a lockdown. and the threat of covered the report recognizes that the government's releasing extra funds to fight the problem, but medic sworn, that's nowhere near enough. the national audit office report shows who are in the middle of the biggest cancer catastrophe ever hit dna chess. there is a deadly cocktail of delays across the board, a regional lottery of cancer inequality and to growing cancer backlog. and it feels like the government and in a chest lead us have their heads and descend. we've contacted a n h as england for comment. those folks posted british to us, released a stipend, i should say just a bit earlier, admitting that the extra demands of treating corona virus victims of affected their
7:17 am
ability to provide routine and non urgent care will simon clock. a microbiologist says it all point to some difficult months ahead for hospitals. yeah, the number is far too high. it is surprising, but it's not surprising. we should have a backlog all throughout the cave in saga, which is lasted well for, for well, every year. and he was unable to deal with his normal case load. and arguably could have been even worse without the law downs. so those cases are just going to mount top. it's still going to be a critical issue. the winter is always pi times dna testing. and i can see us having, if not disastrous time, this week, probably won't be exhausted, will be tight because he is and we've got these cap this backlog. some cancer centers did manage, it was difficult. it was not easy. and of course said there are questions about
7:18 am
infrastructure. so regional kansas center for example, may have better infrastructure and better ability to type a more local center. so it's not always straightforward, but it can be done. the new all microns strain of code does not be detected in 38 countries. that's according to the world health organization. no deaths have yet been reported due to this latest mutation. however, the latest data suggests the virus is spreading twice as fast as the previous delta, very and meanwhile, south africa, which was among the 1st to report a new strain as seeing new daily cove infections at the low vaccination rate in the country has started picking up and recent days, injections are widely available, but less than half of the adult population has been. jobs, of course, will pull asleep. i spoke to vaccine experts in the south african capital. people don't know what this i'm a crime is, especially because sciences haven't confirmed conclusively. what the side effects
7:19 am
all, so we are getting a lot of people coming through out of fear, especially in our older population. you know, people who regent, 7 seas and a receive them quite anxious to get a booster. and so they, as i would say, traffic, jude, sophia, of the unknown, the is a concern that the vaccines aren't working, but i always say to them, remember, last year, how many patients we had in hospital in icu use hospitals almost sets of converts every ward and so many i see you including the e r's compared to now people are still getting contracted with covered but it's manageable. so we are seeing numbers going up. but in terms of how severe the reaction is to the virus, it's a lot listened. this is a private explanation santa, which means it is well we thought and full of information, a far cry from many of the destination fainted in the poorer locations here in south africa, where there's a lack of resources and people don't have the kind of information that they have
7:20 am
here, hadn't been here 6 months ago. it would have been a very different story. but in the last 6 months, you've had in july and race across the country. and in november you had municipal elections. following those 2 mess events, you now have a situation in south africa where almost everybody knows somebody who has contracted coverage. you need to realize that everything that we do will be a precautionary measure, so that we can control and help save a good, a good number of them. i tried to, i've said the needs also taken actual parts that we won't find turing solutions immediately. i just kind of funny here what's going on in the world. you realize that if you don't put on the effort, someone else might have to die for you. so i just decided i'm going to protect people and come and get my vaccination. then we need to get that immunity going and, and, yeah, the boosters and the vaccines worth the science as shown less with in south africa, specifically, we've known that vaccinated people are not in hospitals,
7:21 am
on ventilators, it's mostly unvaccinated. you know, they'll do more videos. you're still going, i am still going to be the last one becoming so. so east, unfortunately, i'm also, you know, pacific teaching physically, i'm jimmy doodle. so i'll be, you know, you know, thronging my body. this is help africa 2nd christmas and a locked down. december is also the main holiday season, which is why many here are concerned that with the ongoing international travel band, just what the impact on the economy will be. and whether or not they'll ever get to spend a christmas with a loved ones. policy a r t, johannesburg, south africa. the white house is blaming a surgeon. lawlessness in america. on the pandemic. press. secretary gen saki, when questioned about recent mass looting, blame to cove. it when a huge group of criminals organized themselves and they want to go lu, pay store at cbs and nordstrom,
7:22 am
a home depot until the shelves are clean. you think that because of the hand i, i think a root cause and a lot of community is, is the pandemic. yes. jackie's remarks come at a spike and looting in a number of states over the last month. something that summer blaming on the rise of the defend the police movement. here's a quick look back at some of that recent looting who we spoke with overtime police officer, dominic is oh, who explained to us why he thinks the crime search has nothing to do with the pandemic. just embarrassing that they're not admitting what it is. it has nothing to recall, but it has nothing to do with bell reform and then releasing criminals right back on the street, not prosecuting properly has nothing to do. a coven defined the police movement is
7:23 am
an emotional response for any time that the public doesn't understand. when use of force is needed, right? you have unarmed either black americans or whatever the case is shot by police and before an investigation is done, the civil rights activists come in and claim police misconduct. so we already have a situation where emotions are high to the voter, thinks the emotional voter thinks is that who this is defining the police, which means we're going to get rid of the cops on our streets. and then let's replace them with the social workers or other people who are better trained and equipped to deal with emotional issues on the street. when you start to have that mindset, well then you're, you're looking at police negative. so already the immoral, the criminal who are out there, feel that they've got the backing of the public. well, i don't have to obey the law. i can break the law because there's already this massive movement to define the police, which means they're going to side with me. it's a mindset of it's okay for us to do this. and we're going to act like criminals
7:24 am
because nothing's gonna happen to us as well. as fighting a crime wave, the u. s. is also suffering from soaring inflation, and many americans are blaming the biden administration for that with 20 percent, saying poor leadership is the country's top problem. are democrats are also among them with some quitting the party, some even switching sides? so breaking old old down for us right now as i corresponded in new york. caleb martin. apparently it's not only working families throughout america who are disappointed by the biden administration's handling of several crises. it's also members of biden's own democratic party, some like the former spokesperson for the washington dc mayor have decided to switch over to the republicans hispanic and also black eyes. i should be democrat by default, but i'm going against their narrative. and i feel like right now, everything is crumbling for the democrats biden is completely destroying the economy right now and people can feel it. so that's what's happening in washington dc. now washington, d. c, is
7:25 am
a city that is pretty solidly in the democratic camp. democrats sometimes even get 90 percent of the vote in elections. no wonder democrats as far away as texas are switching sides. friends something it's happening in south texas and many of us are waking up to the fact that the values of those in washington d. c. on not our values, not the values of most texans, the ideology of to funding the police of destroying the oil and gas industry, and the chaos. our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in south texas. in addition to the recent shifts, 19 democrats are set to leave the house of representatives in 2022. that includes 3 committee chair. some are retiring or seeking another office. republicans only need to gain 5 more seeds in the upcoming mid term vote in order to re take control of the house of representatives. and many observers say their chances of doing so are pretty good. some are comparing it to the republican sweep 10 years ago. how's
7:26 am
democrats have more retirements than they did in 2010 when they lost 63 seats? it's not only the party that's losing people. kamala harris, the vice president of joe biden, is watching her team implode as well. her spokesperson and her communications director have both decided to quit with reports indicating that there are 2 more aids who have one foot out. the door reports are leaking out about strife between her office and the biden team, and the backdrop to all of this is the joe biden's approval ratings keep going down the mid term or less than a year away. and the democratic party seems to be crashing and burning. it appears that some in light of the circumstances have decided to jump out of a sinking ship, which might be causing the democrats even more trouble. the democrats are not delivery on clean and simple, and they're specifically not delivering to the people who are responsible for putting them in power, namely indigenous black, brown, asian, and poor white people. they have given the president and is congress
7:27 am
a chance to govern and the results so far have just not been adequate enough. we have not seen a protection of voting rights. we have not seen police reform. we have not seen action on climate change. i think that people are rightfully letting this administration know based on the approval ratings that more needs to be done and very, very quickly. or there will be electoral consequences if things don't turn around. and i did very, very quickly where people can start to see a trajectory of it going upwards in their favor. they're going to respond with their boats and the democrats could be wiped out. or that's wrapped up a news cost for this. how it had life from moscow on auto international. thank. keep spending time with us today. we're back at the top of the hour with more of your worldwide headlines. hope you can join us with
7:28 am
ah ah ah, it's up it on you being a young old dominion, but they did in a valuable mm hm. mapping my middle now i own my head up my laptop that has a little up and the knuckle. i'm
7:29 am
bob, begin thought, no, well, i'm going up there to be a well, i'm really happy correlations. forbid i tonia headlong. i didn't get that. and i ah hello i max kaiser. this is the kaiser report. let's get right into it. great. well max, you know what jamie diamond has no intrinsic value? well, that's a response to his tweet tier jamie diamond bitcoin has no intrinsic value. bitcoin says, cry harder jamie diamond. but of course max, there is no such thing as intrinsic value. all value is subjective and derived from human consciousness would say col, manga right,
7:30 am
right. the fact that big coin has no intrinsic value or utility value is one of its greatest attributes. one of his greatest features. why is that? because any time like a commodity would have some intrinsic value, let's say with silver or some of the electronics applications used for gold. that means that part of the community brings in what they believe to be its value industrial value. and that would have an impact on the overall price discovery. and that would mean that it's not perfect money because some of those participating in that market have different expectations about its use case than those who are looking at it for the purpose of storing wealth with bitcoin because it has no utility value and no intrinsic value it's perfect money, it's only uses as a monitoring a premium is 100 percent versus goal, which is maybe 80.
