8:00 am
in the headlines and t america's big budget priorities. the pentagon, before the pandemic is present vital signs, often a massive $700000000000.00 defense plan. while washington's global vaccination campaign came running active fund, also this our german politicians call to ban the popular messaging app l. a. graham posting hate speech and conspiracy theory. however, moscow says that double standards, africa, german media, rounded on russia, are trying to sign a few years ago. and mary lee to describe these policy reporting, convicts, news even saying it's causing a surgeon, gang related crimes and demand. the destroyer stops treated as country like a dumping ground. it is not good enough. you deal and is becoming a penal colony for australia and just deporting your problem. why does not solve
8:01 am
the problem of gangs invite australia and new zealand? the news? hello, welcome. you watching it in to national this wednesday afternoon. it's just gone for o'clock came in the russian capital, while the gable k, we'd pandemic to continue. america has a different priority with joe biden. nice signing a massive $700000000000.00 military budget for the upcoming year, even by america's own estimates, a 100 times more than the cost of vaccinating the entire planet is murdered. can 5th explain it's bigger than it's bader than ever before. america's new military budget, $777700000000.00. so vos, that board doesn't monstrous. and it's still not enough. say the people who passed it are nations facing many threats right now. just read the paper every day. china,
8:02 am
russia ran in yet that budget was actually pro a provided by the white house. was a cut, pretty dramatic card if you look at it as and john adjusted for inflation. it is remarkable. these lawmakers they'll, they'll sit there and argue for weeks, months about maternity leave, or building roads or bridges or, or walls. but the better part of a trillion dollars on a war machine back $88.00 for 11 against passed. and the next day that will come to work and to congress and, and they'll wonder where the heck all their money went. i also find it amusing that senator mansion indicates his worry about the deficit after voting justice week for a military budget of $778000000000.04 times greater than build back better over 10 years and $25000000000.00 more than the president requested $778000000000.00. i mean $700000000.00 is
8:03 am
a decimal here. a decimal. where rounding up and down by, by hundreds of millions, 16 times greater than russia's military budget, greater than the next 11 highest military budgets put together. a sudden that the human mind can barely comprehend. somewhat of the extra billions going towards the secretary shall take appropriate action to increase the use of low emission initial free and net 0 initial energy technologies in the operations programs, projects and activities of the department provided these is cost effective on the life cycle of the next spend, there's also a new ranko position in the u. s. military, according to the n d, a draft bill. and that is gender advisor. so troops can get help if they feel like changing genders. we can only guess how many millions that's going to cost. and of course, none of this would be possible without china and russia because of whom the pentagon
8:04 am
argued it needed more money. ginger sandy, we firmly opposed the u. s. slipping negative content concerning china or making an issue out of china for political manipulation is not implement negative content and articles in the act that target china and dummy's. chinese interests or hurts overall bilateral ties and cooperation and important areas. while the l g b t, q plus community may let out a sigh of relief, people that have been incarcerated. guantanamo bay innocence included without trial or justice for decades, will just have to wait a little longer. now one thing they didn't find any money for is, is a few dozen plane tickets to send guantanamo inmates home or to court. unfortunately, he section 1032 of the act continues to borrow the use of funds to transfer guantanamo bay detainees to the custody or effective control of certain foreign countries. and section 1033 of the act bars, the use of funds to transfer guantanamo bay. detainees into the united states,
8:05 am
unless certain conditions are met. it would cost an estimated $7000000000.00 to vaccinate billions. those who still can't get the vaccine. one percent of america's military budget, just one percent, to potentially hold the development of new strains and variance of coven. but no gender advise us in the electric cars for the pentagon. that's the priority. the more the pentagon spends on insanity, the more military contractors make money, isn't we're not at war with anybody. and why we need a military budget the, his bigger than the next over 10 nations combined. i mean that's, that's nonsense. now if you just ended that military industrial compet use ended this mass of military state and let people spend their own money as they see fit. you'd see people spending their money to help people far more effectively than you
8:06 am
as a i d ever does. to provide health care for people overseas and not using that money to hurt people the way the military does. ah, now the popular messaging at telegram night cindy, restricted in germany, i have a claims. it's not doing enough to combat extremist content and co conspiracy theories, but it wasn't all that long ago when german media was criticizing russia. the trying to impose similar restrictions as moscow has been quick to point act. when in 2018 russian court imposed restrictions on the telegram and prevented sending messages, almost every german media out was reported about that so called violation of the freedom of speech in the russia. but now this political campaign is hidden up in germany. guess what? they are targeted with restrictions. telegram, well, it is all rather simple and se telegram in a way it revolutionized messaging and it brought a lot of good to the word to the world and it has changed to things. and it has changed the ways we will text each other, i should say. but of course,
8:07 am
a telegram being one of the least regulated apps for messaging. there's also another side for this metal. it has harbor and has become a haven for all sorts of fringe groups. and while some of those groups might be rather innocent, others are not others or rather harmful. there are all sorts of extremists who are well organizing their there are all sorts of anti vax or movements which, well they kind of get all the information, all the misinformation i should say from this messenger. they feed each other with this misinformation and they kind of exist in this little bubble of delusion. that telegram basically allows them, allows them to exist there and to coordinate their protests, actions, demonstrations and so on and so forth. and basically, dragons involve more people into the glove cove. it misinformation. and this is exactly the problem that germany has with telegram that it allows this sort of people to just exist and well to festa there. and so right now they accusing
8:08 am
telegram of hate speech. they are looking for will legal ways to somehow well influence the company and to have the company or if the content fluency then to take it down altogether. and of course, the german government here, we can all understand it because pro harmful societies, they should not be allowed to just really exist on any platform. but basically this is where the hypocrisy bit comes in, because when russia back in 2018, try to do the exactly same thing. the exact same thing to block telegram because they were terrorists and extremists plotting and you know, coordinating their actions there. nobody wanted to listen to rush and they weren't having any of that. germany was outraged. all of europe was outraged. this was the rhetoric. the blocking of telegram is yet another sound development concerning freedom of speech pluralism and the right to privacy in russia. this is the sort of will rhetoric we had back in 2018. well, compared to what germany is saying right now, we must quickly create
8:09 am
a legal option for switching telegram. so has to be much reaction them from the german public over this you can see one of the headlines, for example, that there are, there are very, very heated debates over well targeting, telegram all sorts, all sorts of that was yazzy over hatred, for example, right now those politicians, those german politicians who are calling for a blockage of telegram for to band the app, they are getting a bit of their own medicine. so now the public and their world policy, a political rivals, they kind of fire back and they accuse them of violating free speech. it does not fit in with a free constitutional state to simply switch off digital platforms. this proposal fits into totalitarian regimes but not into our constitutional order. switching off an entire app is a form of state media censorship that we do not want in germany. so there you have it, and it's not the 1st case recently of germany being accused of, well, you know, not being that dedicated to the freedom of speech. principal r t,
8:10 am
's sister channel in german deutsch. it has been banned in germany, even though it had every legal right to exist than to well to appear on the airwaves. germany justified the decision by saying that the channel should have, should have received a german broadcasting license. even though there are no legal grounds to do that, we're being told by experts it received a broadcasting license and serbia, which is good enough for the entirety of the you. but germany wasn't having that. and so there have been some accusations of well that germany is not as dedicated to the freedom of speech principal as it may be, wants to appear on the line. well, i also spoke with massey, i don't a commentator at tech travel gigs and he thinks blocking one platform won't stop the spread of extremist contact. obviously, telegram the users who and telegram at the moment a shouldn't have too much of an issue. moving to whatsapp. apples i message platform, google's messaging chat platform. there are loads of different messaging apps and
8:11 am
services. and let's not forget, they're also dedicated social media platforms which make it even easier to distribute this type of information or to congregate and discuss these topics. it's also very, very contradictory. we're sometime about 10 years ago in the, in the arab spring, we were celebrating these platforms for enabling uprisings across the mcgray. but in the middle east, it's one of those things that i think is very contradictory. it's fine when it suits you, but then you fight against it when it doesn't have an indigenous leader in new zealand says, australia he's using his country as a dumping ground for convicts causing a surge of gang related crimes in oakland. national mary authority, chairman matthew to khaki, is adamant. the policy is damaging the spirit of friendship between the 2 nations.
8:12 am
and it is not good enough. now that new zealand is becoming a penal colony for australia, and in just deporting your problem away, does not solve the problem of gangs and both australia and new zealand. it is not good enough just to say we're gonna stick a whole lot of people on a plane, on a government charter plane and seen them back to new zealand. that is not the spirit of friendship that you would expect between 2 neighbors. what a strange migration act as a convict should be deported to the countries of birth even if they've lived in australia for their entire lives. and that applies to those sentenced to at least a year in prison. the last couple of years have seen hundreds of people sent back 10 years eland or a lenders make up one of the largest migrant groups entering astray earlier. many arrive at a young age in grow up there. however, a strategy is immigration minister says that government routinely has removed foreign nationals from a range of countries due to serious offenses due to khaki. again though,
8:13 am
says it needs to work with new zealand to find a much better selection. now i also did battle stray and citizens, you know, it's easy just to de pulled the problem away and australians want exactly what we want. we want safe communities. we do not want to say drugs being sold to our children. we are sick and tired of saying gun violence on our streets. one possible solution is a joint task force to address a couple of different things. and even though our police forces by dosier information, dr. unintelligence, at the moment that would be good to see if we could just increase and including and beastie and joint resources. that means also having a look at information and intelligence to find out we are. these drug supplies networks establishing themselves across south east asia, even into the pacific being let's do that job together as australia and new zealand . and that ends explorer you watching are a lead for you this. our parents shouldn't get to the side walk back kids in school,
8:14 am
that's according to the author, the controversial us, and can say re project will debate the issue just after the oh, i use join me every thursday on the alex sermon show. and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport, business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. me. oh, driven by tremendous shaped bankers and those with
8:15 am
airs, sinks. we dare to ask at the end of every year across stock, answer some of your many questions. not surprisingly, many of your questions, concerns politics, the current international situation, and whether we should trust legacy media will do our best to answer as many questions as we welcome back with our team now, should parents have more say, what that children are taught in schools? well, according to nicole, hannah jones, they shouldn't. she is the found with the controversial $1619.00 project, which aims to refrain u. s. history in terms of race and her views are divisive. i don't really understand this idea that parents should decide what's being taught. i'm not
8:16 am
a professional educator, i don't have a degree in social studies or science. we send our children to school because we want them to be taught by people who have an expertise at the subject area. and that is not my job. as a parents, i have every right to ensure my child isn't being taught lies despite what nicole 100 jones says, how can this be promoted? could share any one else to say parents don't get a say in our children's education. her position is faulty and shouldn't be listened to and must have a platform removed. sorry, but parents must be involved. come on, you pesky parents, just let her indoctrinate your kids in peace. well, hannah jones launch the 1619 project with the new york times 2 years ago. and his goal is to highlight the legacy of slavery and the contributions of black americans throughout us. history and cont, content from the project has been included 2 in school curricular and at least 5 us stay swell. we discuss the issue with legal on this jennifer braden de master and
8:17 am
also with the political activist anthony roaches. right. fortunately in america right now, the political faction is kind of taking over everything else including education. i think that's some of the concern here because really what you're trying to do is refrain retrain, children's mind. and that's, that could lead and, and, and we're seeing this now the rise and anxiety and political issues in children getting younger and younger every year. and i think parents have a right to be concerned about that. the major issue here is that a professor hannah jones is actually talking about the truth and, and that's what's lacking so much in this nation right now. and it's really, really sad that even the most far right wing people in germany can accept the fact that there were nazis that carried out atrocities the fact that this nation was forge and a cauldron of white supremacy. slavery indigenous genocide and lance matching is not alive at the end of the day. this is
8:18 am
a fear of the right from hearing and having to embrace the truth. it's funny that the people understand the i are also talking about all the talking about not the germany because not the journey with also the government and the order that the leadership there. that it started to import this propaganda into the population to say if you agree or you don't, that is what my colleague is saying here. that's what some of these new educational politicians are trying to are trying to impose on children on young children. and all that's going to do is continue dividing the population because one thing has happened from this they, they claim to be the moral hybrid. it claims to be the beacon of truth, but all it's doing is dividing people confusing children and wanting children to turn against each other. i don't even know what just happened. that was a very interesting soliloquy. again, we're not trying to tear people apart from each other. a truth is truth. if truth is going to hurt people that's on, on, on the people. and what you just heard, in this very myopic and silly a soliloquy,
8:19 am
is that it's some sort of political motivation. truth just is, is, is truth. you cannot deny what has happened in this country. what is happening in this country. and you cannot deny that this country was founded in the image and the lens of benefiting white people at the expense of other people. and that's just a fact. you can absolutely talk and teach about history and about what's happened in this country. them the heretic, things of laboring without having to completely de do is completely unravel the fabric and the foundations of this country's history. but when it comes to truth, migrant, if we are so far from one that used to mean it's not a relative term, i, civilians killed and homes destroyed. the people impacted by the us led war in afghanistan are more than just numbers. and throughout the year parties, online project unheard voices has been sharing some of their life changing experiences. but we're leaving this hour with one of those stories,
8:20 am
a man who spent 3 years in notorious american run prisons abroad. i had to stop telling myself that i'm the father, that i am a son. i'm a husband that i'm a human being. i started to call myself. i'm what i had been told that i was and that was my number 558. that was my number and gone tommy room in may. 2002. i was interrogated by the cia and the f. b. i and they threatened if i did not cooperate to send me either to egypt or to syria, to be further tortured. either you with us or you were the enemy.
8:21 am
i think it's quite clear to me at the united states response to the terrible depths of, of 911 was vengeance. the war on terror is not a police operation. it's a military operation. why they picked on me. it wasn't just me. they picked on every one. you know, who knows? if anybody's prepared to hand you over to a country to talk to you. and you know, i live is a pakistani, ended me override. and i'm my parents from pakistan. i'm a deal national. they handed me over to the americans without any legal process. ah, i was held there for a year in 2002 to 2003, and i saw 2 individuals beaten to death by american soldiers is east her is play by a whole set of different rules. kids kind of force us than your words, the get me dirty and master in order to take them on part will use all tools at our
8:22 am
disposal to do so. always a few bad apples. isolated incidents i one by one. the terrorists are learning the meaning of american justice. for me, this place, i pity my what the united states was doing a gun. it's done. they were bringing people to this torture site afghans ordering a gun and abusing them outside of the rule of law. and then allowing some of them to go back home and they would go home and tell people what the americans didn't. by the time i got to guantanamo, i was begging to go to the tunnel. and because what i've seen and witnessed in the background was so destructive to this day, i haven't, i can't sleep. ah,
8:23 am
ah, several of us since one cannibal, including several taliban members who now heads of various departments in the act and government were tortured. we were stripped, we were beaten and were spat upon. we were humiliated photographs unless was taken during this period of time they had a that sounds a woman in the next room that led me to believe with my wife being tortured. they waved with the picture of my children in front of me and asked me where do you think they are now, what do you think happened in the night and took your way? and of course, what they wanted me to do was cosign a confession that i was a member of al qaeda, which i was not. and this was, i'd say, stand it, i got it. i think i got it better than a lot of the other prisoners i i
8:24 am
so this is the handmade calendar that i made when i was in guantanamo. i thought that perhaps if i counted the days that it will be easier. but when the days past 2 weeks and months and then 2 years, i realized that it was just futile. when i received such letters from my children who are very young at the time, it's actually made it worse to look at the calendar and start to count down the days my children growing up without me. and every day, without them, with a stab in the heart. and they would come sporadically, they had to be vetted uncensored by the u. s. censorship. my daughter who was 6 at the time, wrote a poem, 12345. once i caught the fish alive, and they redacted that because they said that has numbers in a numbers could mean some sort of a code. so it was that kind of nonsensical reduction disconnecting from the idea of
8:25 am
being a father. ironically and sadly, but also my own personal faith, my belief in god my reading, the koran and again and expectedly becoming friends with several of the american soldiers who would bring me little snippets of inclination sometime next week in a chocolate. sometime next week and a dvd player and show me a film, lexus, humanity that i have never forgotten to this day. and i think i left guantanamo not hating america because of those soldiers, me messages directly from some american soldiers who say that this has been a, a war that has destroyed us as individuals. soldiers, i've spoken to have told me that they cannot sleep at night. so i am in no doubt
8:26 am
about the, the effects of this war, not just on the individual, but on the nation as a whole of whom the soldiers, representative me has gone to the shop and unity types were destroyed. the united states produced a senate report on torture, but not a single person was ever bought for charges for these kind. recently, i gave evidence the international criminal court for their investigations of abuses by americans, enough gunnison. they were investigating the united states, the national army, and the taliban. the only ones who responded by threatening the international court was the united states of america. they said that we will sanction all members of the international court. we will arrest any members of the icpc who come to the usa
8:27 am
or elsewhere that want to investigate us. i think the united states of america needs to step back if it wants to help any of any assistance to the people who understand it's got in the position to negotiate those conditions. it has, it has been an aggressor. the taliban already made gestures towards russia to it's china, to it's the wrong to it's pakistan to with indonesia would be like states and britain in particular. i think that feeling very upset because this is a defeat. it's a military defeat. however, you want to look at it and that imperial hubris, as it were, will not allow them to say that we need to move forward and continue within negotiations that we began in doha, that they cannot be any more saber rattling. it's no good for the african people. it's no good. i've got in touch with a britain or america. you've really got to find a way for ah
8:28 am
ah ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah
8:29 am
ah, a ah ah, one of the worst ever mass shootings in america was in las vegas in 2017. the tragedy explodes the little of the real las vegas. where many say elected officials are controlled by casino, knows the vegas shooting. revealed what the l v n p d really is. and now it's part of the stand machine. most of the american public barely remembers that it happens. that just shows you the power of money in las vegas. the powerful showed that true colors when the pandemic head, the most contagious contagion that we've seen in decades. and then you have
8:30 am
a mayor who doesn't care. so here's carolyn goodman, offering the lives of the vegas, resonates to be the control group. to the shiny facades conceal a deep indifference to the people. i could have been saved if they were to take an action. absolutely, keep the registering and keep the slot machines doing business as a money machine is a huge cash register that is ran by people who don't care about people's lives being lost. 2000 . well, this is the one business show you can't afford to miss. i'm been swan filling them .
