12:00 am
i blue headlining right now, the u. s. host to say summit for democracy, dividing nations into those that maintain criteria and so called non democracy's us treasury threatens american journalists to with hefty fines if they worked a certain publication. one awful daniel is that she has history with us. treasury powers is not gonna have an individual free last journalist. i was microscopic, but some of them are so frightened, they're unwilling even to give interviews like this. and the number of countries registering the new. i'm a chrome strain of covert mold and doubles to 57 since last week. the w h o talked to r t about the threats it poses. i'm really hopeful that 1st of all, the act vaccines will work reasonably well. and secondly, that this doesn't prove to be
12:01 am
a much nasty virus than the earliest strength. ah, oh, it's good to have you with his live for moscow. this is nancy international. i'm calling bray with the headline stories that we're tracking for you. this, our 1st over a 100 nations are going to take part in a democracy summit over the next 2 days, hosted by us president joe biden. and america, it's setting the bar, dividing the world into it thinks of the good, the bad something that china says it's got no moral right to do. may finally go to the food. oh good. yeah. the u. s. claims to be a champion of democracy in human rights, but has hidden it's done past and hypocrisy. today, the u. s. has no moral authority to judge whether the rest of the world is democratic or not. no matter how the u. s. glosses over itself, it's true, face of seeking, had gemini, under the guise democracy, has long been exposed to the world. the so called summit for democracy. well,
12:02 am
let me go down in history as a manipulator and sabotage of democracy with a poll show that the image of american democracy abroad in the heart more than half of respondents don't think that united states is a good example to follow almost a quarter saying it never has been, he's out, he's kind of open. the u. s. government sponsored summit for democracy has already begun. joe biden is presenting it as his glorious call to spread freedom and human rights around the world. in the lead up to it, a national anti corruption program was announced. our real estate markets are at risk of becoming a safe haven for criminals. clipped to crafts and others, seeking to pock corrupt profits by the planners say that money laundering the of the sale of paintings is very hard to regulate. this is something the white house may be very familiar with. joe biden's, son hunter biden, has just discovered some artistic talent. his paintings have sold for half a $1000000.00, not bad for someone who just started painting,
12:03 am
although not everyone is impressed. the 3rd painting you may recognize this name is a 100 biden. now you may think that such an exclusive on that, that 100 binders in such exclusive company, that he would have a background, new artist training for example. but you would be wrong if you thought that. and you might think that he had some sort of apprenticeship with a world renowned artist, but you would be wrong again if you thought that or perhaps that he has been selling his works for years. and again, unfortunately, you would be wrong. this is not just a 100 bind story, it is a bite and family story and it's corrupt, and they're basically thumbing their noses at at everybody because nobody seems to want to hold them into account. hunter biden is a jack of all trades. it would seem, he got paid $50000.00 a month by bruce ma holdings, a company in ukraine, even though he had never worked before in the gas and oil sector. and some people looked into this and thought maybe his father got him the gig,
12:04 am
and that does not exactly re give squeaky clean politics. however, papa biden has always denied any foul play. we have great confidence in our son. i'm not concerned about any accusations been made against him. it's used to get to me under biden, also on is 10 percent of the chinese investment company known as the h r. though he now announces he intends to sell his stake. when asked to clarify the relationship gen saki, the white house spokesperson didn't have much to say. the president, son is not an employee at the federal government. so at pointing to his representatives, joe biden just recently gave quite a bit of good publicity to broader electric bus company. now it just so happens that jennifer granholm, who he appointed as secretary of energy, is a major shareholder. given that status the up to $5000000.00 in value of investment, the secretary run home continues to hold him prosser inc. his position to increase
12:05 am
in lights for personal, unsubstantial involvement in an aggressive, wide ranging untie this public relation campaign to promote electric vehicles. batteries on charging infrastructure with jo biden's, democracy extravaganza kicking off. it's worth noting that recent polling data shows very few think us democracy sets a good example. we decided to ask americans how they view their national leaders. do you think the american political lead is corrupt? sometimes not always, it depends on who the candidate is in which party. huge support. yeah. well, they're all serving their own self interests and then on the american interest, american people's interests at heart. do you believe the corruption allegations against hunter biden? yes. if you read the news and you listened to see in an, you'll see how biden just did everything to cover up for a son. if they were more open about it and actually investigating it and found that there was nothing, then i'd okay. i'd be fine with that,
12:06 am
but the fact that they're hiding everything makes me more suspicious. lots of big talk from the biden administration about fighting corruption around the world. but perhaps they should take a look a little closer to home caleb bobbin r t new york. some thoughts on this george sallie from a london based thing tank on international the fed says the sudden buzz around corruption is just another tool to control other countries. this sudden preoccupation with corruption is a way for. busy the united states to control other countries in particular control . busy that financial transactions, and this is the piece with this democracy summit, the united states. a government is now under the control of joseph biden. and he's the department of justice is treasury department all take the the from the president, and then i'm going to investigate on the bite and then he will then they
12:07 am
investigate the bike all of this time, his financial transaction and his son, extreme success as an office i remember by the announced what was the sometime in the fall. busy of 2020. i think that well, he's been told that he's under investigation by the federal government. well, time is the last and this investigation is obviously going nowhere. american journalists being threatened with massive fines if they work for what a perceived is the wrong publications to contributed to a site called the strategic culture foundation. i've received stuff mornings from the us treasury. this letter was sent to daniela's and michael of echo both new york based journalist. it says the s c f is on the list of banned organizations accused of election, madeline and the u. s. citizens who engage in transactions with the foundation liable to fines of at least $300000.00. daniela's, i shed his personal experience with this. it was
12:08 am
a warning regarding future articles. so essentially, if i write for the, for i find gate and any kind of transaction, which i assume means any, an exchange of money i could be hit with massive fines that were completely destroy my finances. so i was taken aback. i was, you know, concerned certainly, but actually i stopped writing for se yes, since the previous, you know, of 4 or 5 months earlier. so i didn't feel personally threatened. but others who, who want to continue writing for the f works dreamily frightened fair. they have all stopped writing from the site because really there's just, it's, you know, it's impossible to, to battle the us treasury in this kind of case. the us treasury is power is, is, is enormous. and that of a, of an individual freelance journalist is microscopic. but some of them are so frightened, they're unwilling even to give interviews like this one. so you know, so this is what it's showing effect means they're,
12:09 am
they're unwilling to write and they're unwilling even to talk about why they, why they're too afraid to write a threat to make up a part of a targeted sanctions campaign announced by the treasury secretary in april treasury will target russian leaders, officials intelligence services and their proxies that attempt to interfere in the us electro process or so bertie has democracy. this is the start of a new us campaign against russian line behavior. the u. s. government claims that the strategic culture foundation is controlled by russians. foreign intelligence agency, the s b r, and that is also linked to the russian foreign ministry. the foundation denies this and called itself a research platform on your asian global affairs that we contacted the see to get a further response to the claims were also waiting to hear back from the us treasury to we'll let you know if we get an answer. daniela's other says a dangerous precedence already been said. i think that the, that the at the s c f, the foundation hosts honest journalism. even though out i don't,
12:10 am
don't agree with much of it. this is, this is serious work by serious journalists. and that is a supporter of a free speech and a free press. i believe that readers should have access to this. ready kind of stuff and, and yet the, the u. s. government is trying to close it down. and therefore trying to stop information, which is usually at variance with official us policy. from reaching from reaching audiences, including audiences in the us, to stop journalists from writing for these kinds of websites as a new step. and i think that, and i was surprised because because the united states, in fact has a very good track record on when it comes to a free press. i mean, in america, we could say anything we want, you know, i can write the most outrageous things about george w bush or joe biden and not have to worry for a moment about a, the search secret police crashing through my door. but now things may be changing
12:11 am
slightly, and it doesn't or go well. the number of countries where the new covariance or armor kron is registered and more than doubled in just over a week. the world health organization says the strains now been found in $57.00 countries. so far, a new policies are being introduced over 1st that the rate of hospitalizations could now rise. i, one of the latest countries to introduce restrictions is denmark. well, my 600 cases have been registered. it's introduce its version of lockdown and light version, limiting the opening hours of bars and restaurants and closing schools. early for the christmas break, we asked the w h. o special envoy, on coven, for his perspective on the very it people do not understand enough about this paris. nobody knows for sure how nasty ami kron is, but there's information coming through that it's, it's not too awful. ready and this is good,
12:12 am
but it takes time to sort these things out and we're in a kind of odds on stage at the moment where we're waiting for the results of the research. what i want to say is everybody keep doing the stuff that you know what to do, even if you're bored a bit. and sooner or later, we'll find out how bad only cronies, some companies saying they're vaccines will work other saying they can a need, a booster for them to be effective. all this will come clear, it usually takes about 4 weeks. and i anticipate that will happen, but privately inside my so just goes, you ask me, i'm really hopeful that 1st of all, the acts vaccines will work reasonably well. and secondly, that this doesn't prove to be a much nastier barris than the earliest drains. i've been involved in controlling disease outbreaks and pandemic since 2005. that's quite a few years. the one thing i've learned try never to force people to do
12:13 am
things through various incentives like fines or even nastier things. mandates are a last resort. the use of vaccines in children is because there is thought that vaccination will help to reduce circulation of the barrison children. but right now the world health organization sticks with its recommendation that vaccines should be used for people who were at risk of severe illness and death. there are still an awful lot of susceptible people around even when you've got 70 percent vaccination coverage than this high right of, of cases is being driven by the susceptible. secondly, there does seem to be a capacity for the virus to re infect people, especially if it is some months since they either had their previous infection or
12:14 am
had their immunization, the protection doesn't last for life. it wears off. so that's, i think, the reason why we're staying the spikes, even though it's high vaccination. mounting outrage in the u. k. over a supposed downing street party last christmas during tightened. pandemic restrictions has claimed its 1st scalp. the prime minister, former press secretary resigned after a video, emerged showing her joking about the event suggesting that it did happen. forest johnson ordered an inquiry that was grilled in parliament on wednesday. they knew the was a party, they knew it was against the rules. they knew they couldn't admit it, and they thought it was funny. a prime minister has been called right. time to why definitely envy investigation right now. but just admitting it. i been repeatedly assured, oh, i understand. i probably think big news, the news, but there is a risk of doing a great a grave injustice to people who frankly,
12:15 am
obeying the rules with the prime minister. the government spent the week telling the british public. there was no party. all guidance was followed completely. millions of people now think the prime minister was taking them for fools. well, many say this could be the final nail in the coffin for bars. johnson, as he's now being accused of lying, or even trying to cover up an alleged christmas party that happened. nasty, ever met the kobe to restrictions. now, after you had that from sickest alma, the leader of the opposition, he says the tory party have been caught red handed as multiple sources confirm that this party did indeed happen boris johnson. he insist that he's been assured that it didn't take place, but if you look into the wording of forest johnson, he didn't flat out, deny it either. now all of this comes off to number 10. officials were caught
12:16 am
joking about this, so called potty or as they phrased it, this wine and cheese business meeting has the i t v exclusive video and she recognizes i'm at home is fictional policy was a business means it was not associated. now if a party did happen while certainly covet rules were broken because at that time, london was in tier 3 of the private restrictions, meaning no indoor mixing. of other households was allowed at the time. not to mention the day off to this party, christmas was cancelled, and tighter restrictions were then announced. now things have really escalated throughout the day to day. in fact, the police are even considering launching an investigation into this matter. boris johnson says he will assist with any probe that might potentially happen. but of course, this isn't the 1st time the tory party have been embroiled in such rule breaking
12:17 am
sagas. if we look back to the heights of the pandemic, dominic cummings, the prime minister's, former chief, 8. well, he travelled 270 miles from london to durham to visit barnard castle. then of course, mat hancock, the former, how secretary he was seen, intimately embracing a colleague, both of which have been rule breaking. and that's really the problem. that's why, as so many people are angry that those people that are making the rules think it's okay to simply break them. while the political opposition, the house of commons, they say they simply can't go on. and the prime minister's time is up downing street willfully broke the rules and the more the sacrifices we have all made, the prime minister has our duty, the all my right and moral choice left to him. it is for his resignation. countless children now growing up without parents while parties were held
12:18 am
at number 10. it is an insult for everyone. he wasn't allowed to say that final. good bye. my question is very simple. how does the prime minister sleep at night? well, the reality has many people were an absolutely heart wrenching position last year. people that couldn't go and visit their dying parents simply because they wanted to stick to the rules. in the meantime, the tories were allegedly out partying. a former british home of his minister, norma baker says the scandal will further spur distrust in the government. there was a party that british the rules were broken. so i think he's lost all credibility. i think frankly has become a liability not to this country but to the conservative party as well. i think his own party depending on him being given the line to paris, to the media, or defined the level,
12:19 am
the garden by the prime minister. so the premise doesn't happen over all the bogging comfortable truths. he wants to be loved. he wants to be like to prove a premises down the delivers. and there is a smell of arrogance about this government. so they can do what they want to hand down the load to other people. and if we are going to apply and be coming forward, but this winter, and that's look increasingly likely, even today, the people around the country going to say, why should i bother following the rules with a private doesn't? so the consequences for public health, potentially serious as well. the governor of the us state of arizona is calling out the biden administration over its migration policies. he says, border patrol or overwhelmed national guards have been cold up because of what he calls biden's piecemeal policies. and people taishan to drop by around 80 percent during the biden presidency, according to a migration control think tank, the center for immigration studies, analyze data from the federal immigration and customs enforcement agency. also
12:20 am
noticing that along with the general numbers that people taishan of criminals fell, the director of policy study that the group behind the report explain to us what's happening with us migration. were at a time of historically high, illegal immigration, and historically low enforcement. when ice agents are not allowed to make arrests, as they were in the past, under the new policies, that means that the serious criminals that are typically the priority for enforcement are allowed to stay in american communities instead of being sent back to their homes. and when criminals are allowed to stay here, typically they re offend and create new victims and continue to cause problems in this country. so this is an unnecessary public safety risk and is odd damaging communities that have to absorb criminals who otherwise would be sent
12:21 am
home. the by no ministration though, has spent under pressure and reinstated a trump a reprogram. when migrants returned to mexico to await their reciting decisions, the announcement of the re loan sent masses of desperate people to the u. s. bold as a try to get in before it started working again. and the scramble we had about there in arizona or jessica vaughn says, more should be done to prevent the legal crossings. this is a matter of policy, it's not a matter of resources or immigration system is badly in need of reform. we need to have measures in place that result in more enforcement, more tools for immigration enforcement. more a programs that allow state and local law enforcement agencies to help ice do its job. and i think we need more money for enforcement directly at the border as well . more barriers to prevent people to keep a, to cross illegally the,
12:22 am
you should invest more in its military development to avoid the risk the lagging behind other major powers. that's the warning from the blocks foreign policy chief, joseph harold, who also says that a significant gap already exists. we could have been union and a member to state would need to do much more together. and we need to to do much more together. right now. we cannot wait because the choice for as a symbol, either way, invest a lot on defense innovation or we will become defense irrelevant. according to the european defense agency, the body that's responsible for military cooperation and development within the block. the e. u spent a record 198000000000 euros on defense last year. even despite pandemic, hardship. however, only one percent of that was allocated to the research and development of new
12:23 am
technologies. when the goal was to spend double that amount, what's more? that number is 7 times less than america spent. the latest data suggests that in 2020, the european union member states spent roughly 2500000000 euros on research and technology. and one percent. 1.2 percent of the total defense expenditure. it's important to look that on innovation that the e u spent slightly more than one percent of total defense from the beginning of the developing of the europe and treaty that will always included the idea to have her own strong military arm that say are most of the european union, now the military thinking very much developing and the european union now they are pushing for have,
12:24 am
having higher expenditure on military issues and to have more who are in military capacities as well for a policy. the question is protected against tool. i don't think that the european union is at the moment under current stretch from, from senator is from anybody we. ready have problem with the cove it but i don't see that anybody is now trying to attack military the union. i turning dislike into dollars a budding entrepreneur in the us state of massachusetts has opened a store selling some unique anti biden merchandise. while many business owners have been angered by the president's policies, this particular outlet voted success to mm. mm. mm mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm. mm.
