ah, ah, tonight, america's budget priorities for the pentagon before the pandemic, as president pardon signed off on a massive $700000000000.00 defense plan. while washington's global vaccination campaign keeps running out of money, german politicians call to buy the popular messaging app telegram over hosting hate speech and covey conspiracy theories. however, moscow says glass double standard after the german media criticized russia for trying to do the very same thing. just a few years ago. out of mary leader slammed australia's policy of automatically reporting new zealand is convicted of crimes. even if they spend their entire lives in australia, it is not good enough that new zealand is becoming a penal colony for australia and, and just to port your problem. why does not solve the problem of gangs and growth,
1:01 pm
austria and new zealand with hello their life. most international, moscow will welcome to a will do at 9 p. m. with me coming out 1st. and while the global covey pandemic continues, america has a different power at say, with that joe biden now signing a massive $700000000000.00 military budget for the upcoming year in by america's own estimates. that's a 100 times more than the cost of vaccinating the entire planet. as our cd correspondent explains, it's bigger than it's bad other than ever before. america's new military budget, $777700000000.00. so vast it board doesn't monstrous. and it's still not enough, say the people who passed it are nations facing many threats right now. sri the
1:02 pm
paper every day china russia ran and yet that budget was actually pro a provider by the white house. was a cut, pretty dramatic code. if you look at it, as 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 will or walls. but the better part of a trillion dollars on a war machine back 88 for 11 against past. and the next day they'll 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 a decimal here, a decimal well rounding up and down by,
1:03 pm
by hundreds of millions, 16 times greater than russia's military budget, greater than the next 11 highest military budgets put together a sum 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 fee 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 innocent, 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. we certainly opposed the u. s. slipping negative
1:04 pm
content concerning china or making an issue out of china for political manipulation issue not implements negative content and articles in the act that target china and damaged chinese interests or hurts overall bilateral ties and corporation and importance areas. while the l g b t q plus community, ne, 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 field doesn't plane tickets to send guantanamo inmates home or to court. unfortunately, he section 1032 of the act continues to bar the use of fonts to transfer a guantanamo bay. detainees to the cassidy or effect of 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
1:05 pm
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 usa or the ever does
1:06 pm
to provide health care for people overseas and not use that might hurt people the way the military does. ah, the popular messaging up telegraph might be restricted in germany over claims is not doing enough to combat extremist content and coven conspiracy theories. but it wasn't all that long ago when german media was criticizing russia for trying to impose similar restrictions as moscow's been quick to point. when in 2018 russian court imposed restrictions on the telegram app and prevent attended messages, almost every german media outlets reported about that so called violation of the freedom of speech in russia. but now that political campaign is heating 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, a telegram being one of the least regulated in apps for messaging. there's also
1:07 pm
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 to 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 drag and involve more people into the circle of covert dirt 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, be, are accusing telegram of hate speech or they are looking for will legal ways to somehow will influence the company and to have the company or if they can't
1:08 pm
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
1:09 pm
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 also said that bush as of a hatred, for example, right now, those politicians, those german politicians, were calling for a blockage of telegraph for to band the app. 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 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, 's sister channel in german deutsch. it has been banned in germany,
1:10 pm
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 on the line. we spoke as well to mateo, don't a commentator tech travel geeks, he thinks just blocking one platform won't stop this, but of extreme is content obvious 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 services. and let's not forget,
1:11 pm
there are 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! france has registered europe's highest ever daily spike in coven cases of tune 1000 in the past 24 hours. the health ministers describing it as a title wave of his policy has got the latest. e latest announcement is certain concerning, not only to france, but here across europe. as you correctly mentioned, the french health minister announcing that france has crossed the threshold of more than 200000 people,
1:12 pm
testing positive for covert in the last 24 hours. if you break that down, it's 2 french people testing positive every 2nd for 24 hours. including the daytime and nighttime, the actual figure was 208000. now, the french minister made that announcement while he was motivating to turn the mandatory health pass into a vaccination pass. in other words, people will have to show proof of vaccination if they are to enter any kind of public spaces, bars, restaurants, and cultural venues. at the same time, b health minister spoke about galloping circulation and said, these kind of figures make you dizzy little to do them. elizabeth was the armor con, very him, but it's not just to wave anymore. given the numbers we are recording, it's a tidal wave. tonight's figures show the continuous increase. it makes you dizzy. now 5000000 people in france have not as of yet received the vaccination. the health minister ascribing to primarily 2 reasons. he says,
1:13 pm
the one group is people who are far away from information and potentially far away from any kind of vaccination sites. and the number of people that fall into this category is hard to determine. but then there's another group of people who are against against the vaccine. what ever comes and here, turning a health past into a vaccination pass is not going to help them. these are people who believe that covered doesn't exist, that the vaccine can, can kill a person. and there's no way to try and convince these. anti faxes fonts now has the highest number of covert positive people per day in europe. it's hospitals are already struggling to deal with people who have been admitted with the previous del to strain and their increasing concerns that although the army con so far seems mulder. but certainly we all go into witness frances health services being pushed to the limit and all stream to pipe while linking russia to germany is now been
1:14 pm
filled with natural gas is ready to start. work at now just needs the green light them from europe, but that's the big thing. it's a start supply. millions a household that's going to speak to the latest art is nicky, arizona tonight? hey, nicky potentially a major reprieve. so you're done with this ongoing energy crisis, but with all that german red tape will, it won't, it will it, won't it? what is the latest? well, kevin, this $11000000000.00 project node stream to is ready to go. its final line is complete and that pipe is filled with gas ready to deliver gas to grateful gen and consume is because like that crucial piece of paper, that's final legal permission from german regulators. so it can start to work you paid attention to now everything depends on our partners in europe. as soon as they decide to start work, a huge additional amount of russian gas will immediately begin to flow to europe. this will affect the price on the market. and all the countries that request a gas will immediately feel the difference. the pipeline will carry gas from
1:15 pm
western fire barrier doubling the existing capacity of the node stream one pipeline, delivering from 55000000000 cubic meters of gas to some 26000000 german homes. and keep them warm at a very affordable pricing for germany, which has seen gas prices skyrocketing, skyrocketing i made rising demands, and lack of supplies. this really is the answer to that, pres, but it's been a drama all the way for node stream soon since it was 1st announced that back in 995. because the concerns are basically that by handing rush at such potential leverage over european energy security, then it gives it a tool to use of the geopolitical weapon. and this is something that russia has said, it does not have any plans to do so. so in a nutshell, germany badly, once this gas pipeline to go ahead, but german allies just not so keen on the idea,
1:16 pm
was to say, if, who soon becomes upset is not just going to stump his boots on that when pipe of europe. if he has that kind of control. so the latest twist coming just days ago. now that's off the moscow was accused of limiting gas supplies to europe in a, in a bit, to put pressure on the continent. and this is something that's already been denied by germany's energy ministry as well as the russian deputy prime minister. we are being accused of not supplying additional volumes of gas to europe, sign long term contracts, and we will be ready to supply more the resource base. that rush ass allows it to meet your pin consumers demand in any volume. but of course, this is not a quick process because the policy that has been pursued and the u has been aimed at reducing demand. now, the stance that russia is taking is there is no plan be for this. they, it fully expects the pipeline to go ahead for the german regulators to give it the old, clear. and it fully expects this to be working by the middle of 2022 nicki
1:17 pm
right. keep us posted. thanks for bring us of that. no big story tonight, europe needs that gas to cold winter. thanks for right next story about indigenous lead to a new zealand saying a straightly as using his country as a dumping ground. the national murray authority chairman, once camera, a scrap it's policy of deporting new zealanders when they've convicted of crimes. it is not good enough that new zealand is becoming a penal colony for australia and just deporting your problem. why does not solve the problem of gangs in both australia and new zealand? it is not good enough just to say, well, going to stick a whole lot of people on applying on a government chat, applying and seen them back to new zealand. that is not the spirit of friendship and that you would expect between 2 neighbors. unrestrained in law, if foreign nationals centers to more than one year in prison,
1:18 pm
the automatically lose the right to stay in the country that applies even if they've lived in destroyer their entire lives. the last couple of years have seen hundreds of people sent back to new zealand as a result of strategies. immigration ministers defended a policy saying that government will continue to to expel foreign nationals who commit serious offenses, matthew to khaki. those says it needs to work with new zealand, better to find a better solution. now, i also did that australian citizens, you know, it's easy just to deport the problem. white 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, they do share information, doctorate intelligence at the moment, it would be good to see if we could just increase their including beastie and joint
1:19 pm
resources. that means also having a look at information and intelligence to find out where these drug supplies networks are establishing themselves across southeast asia, even into the pacific. been let's do that job together as australia and new zealand . and that ends expert design, team personnel, his art international, and i will these at 9 with me, kevin, now in great, you're checking in, thank you for it. coming up, parents shouldn't get to decide what their kids learn at school. what to think about that. what, according to the author of a controversial us anti slavery project, we thrash out then with our invited guess, i'll bring him or 2 after the break. ah. join me every 1st day on the alex salmon show. i'll be speaking together for the world politics sport. business. i'm sure business. i'll see you then.
1:20 pm
mm. ah. ah, ah. ah, at the end of every year crosstalk answer some of your many questions. not surprisingly, many of your questions, concerns politics, the current international situation, and whether we should trust legacy median. we'll do our best to answer as many questions as again
1:21 pm
ah, again to parents, i will say, well, the children are taught at school while, according to nicole, hannah jones, they should not. she is the founder of the controversial $1619.00 project, which seems to reframe us 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 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 a 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 told lies despite what nicole hannah jones says, how can this be promoted? who has she or anyone else to say, parents don't get a say in our children's education. her position is faulty and should be listened to and must have a platform removed. sorry, but parents must be involved. come on,
1:22 pm
you pesky parents, just let her indoctrinate your kids in peace. while hannah jones launched the 69 team project the new york times 2 years ago, the goal is to highlight the legacy of slavery and contributions of black americans throughout us history. indeed, content from that project husband included in school curricular, and at least 5 us states. we discussed it with legal and list jennifer braden to master and also with political activist and c rogers, right. unfortunately in america right now, the political faction is kind of taking over everything else including education. and i think that's some of the concern here because really what you're trying to do is rephrase retrain children's minds. and that's, that could lead and, and then 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, the major issue here is that professor hannah jones is actually talking about the
1:23 pm
truth. 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 college of white supremacy. slavery indigenous genocide and lance matching is 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 one beside the i are also talking about are also talking about not the germany, because not the journey with a, with also the government and be ordered. but the leadership there that 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 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 with continue dividing the population. because one thing has happened from this, the claim to be the moral ironic claims to be the beacon
1:24 pm
a truth, but all it's doing is dividing people confusing children and wanting to get your turn against each other. i don't even know what just happened. that was a very interesting soliloquy. again, we're not trying to tra, tell people apart from each other. a 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 a soliloquy 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 an image and a 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 happened in this country. them the horrific, think that labor without having to completely de, completely unravel the fabric and the foundation of this country, the 3. but,
1:25 pm
but you know, when it comes to truth, my goodness, we are so far from when that you mean it's not a relative term. a russian blogger accused of defending terrorist ideology, has been released from custody and st. petersburg. he's no subject though to a night time home detention order while the troll continues. the cases received huge publicity or in russia, as if a trend cur, explains every prime that the russian law enforcement are after a blogger, or a singer, a wrapper in this country with the multi 1000000 audience. it's always a big deal. indeed, the blogger, you were, you have on sky was very popular online in russia, and of course, the army of followers and fans, the liberal media as well. they are following every twist and turn in this case. so this decision to peddle back on blogger hold on skis did tension just ahead of perhaps the number one holiday on the calendar. in russia, new year's eve was
1:26 pm
a massive surprise for everyone. indeed, he will be allowed to go home. however, there are still a number of restrictions. he won't be able to leave his place after 6 pm. he won't be able to use the internet or talk to any witnesses apart from his girlfriend. now i can tell you that he was in detention since june. this year, after supposedly seeing about a brutal act of terrorism in moscow that happened almost 20 years ago and took the lives of 130 people again. supposedly he used to swear word that is synonymous to awesome about that particular act of terrorism. but we do have to understand that the trial is not over no matter how popular the person is and no matter how big of a surprise this release is because the next decision by the court will come after
1:27 pm
the holidays on january the 8th. he might be back in detention again, again, like i said, the trial is far from being over and will be hearing news about eureka bonham, sky, many times in the near future. returning to the new russian passenger play, that's ready to take the skies next them as 21300 was beset by production delays because of the us sanctions on some of the key components for it, meaning russia to produce them domestically in the end. but the trade minister said that actually that worked in russia's favor in the end that we lost almost 2 years. but now we've got our own campus. it's our own way. so who lost out in the end, foreign companies missed out on $2000000.00 for each wednesday. so this is an investment in the development of russia economy, them national association and technology. so we need to continue the process of finishing all certification procedures, and we'll do that. whatever circumstances arise. so bit about the m. s. 21300. got
1:28 pm
a capacity for $211.00 passengers. the certification process is nearly complete, and deliveries are due to start in 2022. in the early production stages, the wings were made by us and japanese firms. but as mentioned just now, the us sanctions in 2019 russia had to spend more than $60000000.00 developing its own parts of the asian expert romika. sarah told us he thinks those sanctions with just an attempt to stifle competition. san c, v. john, the per sanctioning a russian company is an example of unfair competition. i don't pose any strategic or military threats to our foreign colleagues court. it's a civilian company with civilian oriented products. it is obvious that the sanctions were aimed at stopping the m. s 21 project going in their boss haven't created a new type of passenger plane in a while. they only modernize existing models. and the m. s. 21 has been made from scratch using modern technology. so it has some advantages over the competitive bill and the americans wanted to stop an emerging rival today is also part of our.
1:29 pm
1 south his world news at 9 from oscar with me. kevin, i want to stop by for our next programs in your part of the world about with more 30 minutes. hope you're having a great wednesday. ah . by the pandemic, no certainly no borders and just like to tease a new, fresh as a merge. we don't have a charity. we don't have a vaccine. whole world needs to take action and be ready. people are judgment, common crisis with we can do better. we should be doing better. every one is contributing each in our own way, but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is great,
1:30 pm
the response has been matched. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are in it together with oh, happy new year. special kaiser. it board with the one and only gerald salenti, originator of the trend forecast. man, you know stuff who's diagnosed with cancer in 2000 lives. when the doctors told me the cancer was incurable, i knew i had to make a change. so i decided to travel to one of the most toxic places in america. florida went to florida's biggest industries and best kept secrets.
