9:00 am
people's lives being lost, ah ah, the headlines this are america's big budget priorities. putting the pentagon before the pandemic, as president biden signs off on a massive $700000000000.00 defense plan. our washington's global vaccination campaign keeps running active funds. auto. the sour german politicians call to plan the popular messaging app telegram over hosting hate speech and code the conspiracy theories. however, pasco says now double standards after the german media wrangler, russia for trying thing the same a few years ago. and a mary leader slammed australia's policy of deporting convicts to new zealand saying it's causing a surgeon, gang related crimes and demands that australia stops treats in his country like a dumping ground. it is not good enough and it's becoming a penal colony for australia and,
9:01 am
and just supporting your problem. why does not solve the problem of gangs and very close drive in new zealand with hello, good afternoon, just come 5 o'clock here in moscow. you're watching marty international. now, while the global caving pandemic does continue, america has a different priority. joe biden, assigning a massive $700000000000.00 military budget for the upcoming year, even by america's own estimates. that's a 100 times more than the cost of vaccinating the entire planet is more against yet expect it's bigger than it's better than ever before. america's new military budget, $777700000000.00. so vast board doesn't monstrous. and it's still more enough to say the people who passed it are nations facing many threats right now to sri the paper every day china russia ran and yet
9:02 am
that budget was actually provided by the white house was a cut, pretty dramatic code. if you look at it, as in john adjusted for inflation, it is remarkable. these lawmakers they'll, they'll sit there and argue for weeks, months about maternity leave. will building roads or bridges will 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
9:03 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 with ally cycle of the nest and 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 argued. it needed more money. in your sunday,
9:04 am
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 corporation 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 a 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 unless
9:05 am
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 massive 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 as
9:06 am
a i d ever does. to provide health care for people overseas and not using that might hurt people the way the military does. now the popular messaging app telegram might seem be restricted in germany, either claims it's not doing enough to combat extreme is content and k with conspiracy theories. but it wasn't all that long ago when jim and media was criticizing russia to trying to impose similar restrictions as moscow has been quick to point tact. when in 2018 russian court imposed restrictions on the telegram app and prevent attended messages, almost savagery, media outlets reported about that so called violation of the freedom of speech in russia that now that political campaign is heating up in germany. guess what they're 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,
9:07 am
a telegram being one of the least regulated and apps for messaging. there's also another side for this medal it has harboured 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 are, well they kind of get all the information or 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 or that telegram basically allows them, allows them to exist there and to coordinate their black protests actions, demonstrations and so on and so forth. and basically, dragons involve more people into the circle of covered their 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 are accusing telegram of hate speech or they are looking for will legal ways to somehow will
9:08 am
influence the company and to have the company or if they can't influence it, than to take it down altogether. and of course, the german government here, we can all understand it because while 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 there were terrorists and extremists plotting and you know, coordinating their actions there. nobody wanted to listen to russian. they weren't having any of that. germany was outraged, all of europe was outraged. this was their rhetoric, the blocking of telegram as 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 a legal option for switching telegram. so has to be much reaction them from the
9:09 am
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 also. it's all sorts of that was yazzy over hatred for example. right now those politicians, those german politicians were calling for a blockage of tele ground for to band the up. they are getting a bit of their own medicine. so now the public and their world policy of 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, but 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,
9:10 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 in 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, but germany is not as dedicated to the freedom of speech principal as it may be wants to appear while also spoke with motto, tony, he's a commentator, tech travel gates and he things, blocking one platform won't stop the spread the extremist content of his a telegram, the users who and telegram at the moment 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
9:11 am
services. and let's not forget that 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 it, but then you fight against it when it doesn't. ah, an indigenous leader. he new zealand says a stray lawyer is 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. it is not good enough that new zealand is
9:12 am
becoming a penal colony for australia and just reporting your problem. why does not solve the problem of gangs in both australia and new zealand. it is not good enough just to say we're going to stick a whole lot of people and applying on a government child applying and seen them back to new zealand. that is not the spirit of friendship and that you would expect between 2 neighbors. what a strategy is migration act to say, convict should be deported to their countries of birth even if they've lived in this trailer for their entire lives. and that applies to those sentenced to at least a year in prison. last couple of years have seen hundreds of people sent back to new zealand. he zealanders do make up one of the largest migrant groups entering astray leah and many to arrive at a young age to grow up there. however, the strategy is immigration minister says the government routinely has to remove 4 nationals from a range of countries to, to serious offenses. matthew to khaki again says though it needs to work with new
9:13 am
zealand to find a much better solution. now i also did that australian citizen, you know, it's easy just to deport 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 gonzalez. so asked traits one possible solution is a joint task force to address a couple of different things. and even though police forces by do share information, data and intelligence at the moment, that would be good to see if we could just increase and including and based in joint resources. that means also having a look at information and intelligence to find out we these drug supply networks establishing themselves across south east asia, even into the pacific and being let's do that job together as austria and you feel it. and that ends ex thorough you're watching are. so you still have you over the
9:14 am
next few minutes. parents shouldn't get to decide what their kids in school, according to the author of a controversial us and to slavery project debate the issue yourself. ah oh, is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? isolation for community. are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? direct. what is true was is great. in the world
9:15 am
corrupted, you need to descend. ah, so join us in the depths will remain in the shallows 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 ah, hello again, i should parents have more say what that children are taught in school? well, according to nicole, hannah jones, they shouldn't. she's the founder of the controversial $1619.00 project which aims to refrain u. s. history in terms of price and have these are divisive. i don't really
9:16 am
understand this idea that parents should decide what's being taught. i'm not 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 in 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 to she or anyone else to say, parents don't get a say in our children's education position is faulty and should 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. and james launched the 6900 project with the new york times 2 years ago. its goal is to highlight the legacy of slavery and the contributions of black americans throughout the us. history and content from the project has been included to in school curricula in at least 5 us states.
9:17 am
we discuss the issue with legal on this jennifer braden de master and also with political activist anthony rogers rust. 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 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 in a cauldron of white supremacy. slavery indigenous genocide and lance matching is
9:18 am
not alive at the end of the day. this is a fear of the right from hearing and having to embrace the truth. it's funny that the people on the side, the i are also talking about are also talking about not the germany, because not the journey with a, with also the government and the order that the leadership there that started to import this propaganda into that 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 high ground. it claims to be the beacon of truth, but all it's doing is dividing. people confuse the 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. truth is truth. if truth is going to hurt people that's on, on the people, and what you just heard in this very myopic and silly
9:19 am
a soliloquy is that it's some sort of political motivation. truth just 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, but you know, when it comes to truth migrant, we are so far from when that used to mean it's not a relative term. the civilians killed and homes destroyed the people impacted by the us led war in afghanistan or more than just numbers throughout the year. he's online project unheard, voices has been sharing some of their life changing experiences. what will leave you this hour with one of those stories,
9:20 am
a man who spend 3 years in notorious american run prisons abroad? i had to stop telling myself that i'm a father that i am a son. i'm a husband that i'm a human being. i saw that to call myself or what i had been told that i was and that was my number 558. that was my number in guantanamo 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're with us or you're with the enemy. there is no in between and that doctors still stay us.
9:21 am
i think it's quite clear to me if the united states response to the terrible deckles 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 pakistan is and to be overwrite. and i'm my parents from pakistan on a deal national. they handed me over to the americans without any legal possible. 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,
9:22 am
the get mean 30 and master in order to take them on. we'll use all tools at our disposal to do the boys a few bad apples and isolated incidents one by one. the terrorists are learning the meaning of american justice. for me, this place the pit demise. what united states was doing. i've done 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 did. by the time i got to guantanamo, i was begging to go to turn on because what i've seen and witnessed in belgrade was so destructive to this day. i haven't, i can't sleep. ah,
9:23 am
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 was spat upon. we were humiliated photographs. this was taken during this period of time, they had a, the sounds of a woman in the next room that led me to believe was my wife being tortured. they waived the picture of my children in front of me and asked me where do you think they are now, what do you think happened to them 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. ah, ah i
9:24 am
oh, so this is kinda 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 turn 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 the count down the days my children were 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
9:25 am
a code. so it was that kind of nonsensical reduction disconnecting from the idea of being a father. ironically and sadly, but also my own personal faith, my belief in god my reading, the koran. and again, an 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,
9:26 am
i've spoken to have told me that they cannot sleep at night. so i am in no doubt about the, the effects of this war, not just on the individuals, but on the nation as a whole of whom the soldiers representative me has gone to 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 crimes. recently, i gave evidence the international criminal court for their investigations of abuses by americans. enough. they would investigate to the united states, the national army and the taliban. the only ones who responded by threatening the international criminal court will be united states of america. they said that we will sanction all members of the national committee court. we will arrest any
9:27 am
members of the icpc who come to the usa 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 to russia to its china, to it's the wrong to it's pakistan with indonesia, with the united 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 not 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,
9:28 am
well, happy new year. special kaiser report with the one and only gerald salenti, originator of the trends, forecast man. no stuff ah ah ah
9:29 am
i'm after continue watching, going underground team and i will be back for brand new season on wednesday, the 12th of january. but until then we'll be showing you some of your favorite shows from this season. that got 26 continues in glasgow and join now by the president of the country with one of the world's largest reserves of lithium, louise asa, who's addressed the conference earlier in the week. mister president, thanks so much for letting us into your embassy. we wouldn't be able to pay the cameras here without the lithium the powers, the batteries. um, congratulations on the restoration of democracy. what did you make of prime minister bars? johnson hosting cop 26, claiming that capitalism is the key to we're solving this climate emergency. well, thank you. thank you for your time. i will actually, what we have seen in india meeting was that everybody,
9:30 am
all the rich countries are trying to, you know, wing some time and only renew the capital limbs. and the green capital is what we call it. because all the instruments that they are trying to put in place in order to solve the problem of the climate crisis i call it is under the market conditions market instrument. so that's why we decided to, you know, to propose another, a tentative mechanism instrument in noted, you're not all the developing countries insane. the bro languages, which are new market instruments for those $100000000.00 and a $1000000000.00 that they provide. they compromise in their, in parties agreement, but we haven't seen anything yet. yeah. they, they promised it. and so when you talked of your proposals.
