ah, ah, to night america's budget priorities put the pentagon before the pandemic, as president biden signs offered a massive $700000000000.00 defense plan. while washington's global vaccination campaign keeps running out of money. german politicians called by the popular messaging of telegram over hosting hate speech and coven conspiracy. theories of moscow says that double standards of the german media criticized russia for trying to do exactly the same thing just a few years ago. and a mari leda slams australia's policy of automatically deporting new zealanders, convicted of crimes, even if they spent their entire lives in australia. it is not good enough that museum and is becoming a penal colony for australia and, and just reporting your problem. why does not solve the problem of gangs in both
3:01 pm
australia and new zealand? hello, there life mart international welcome to our world news at 11 p. m. with me, kevin, our 1st. and while the global coverage pandemic continues, america has a different priority tonight with joe by now, signing 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. as ward gasdio explains. it's bigger than it's bad 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 paper every day china russia ran and yet that budget was actually provided by the
3:02 pm
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, 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 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
3:03 pm
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 sum that the human mind can barely comprehend. somewhat of the extra billions going towards the secretary shall take appropriate action, see increased ease of low emission initial free and net 0 initial energy technologies in the operations programs project and activities of the department provided these is cost effective on the life 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. ginger sandy,
3:04 pm
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 damaged chinese interests or hurt 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 field doesn't plane tickets to send guantanamo inmate's 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 custody 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
3:05 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 you as a i d ever does. to provide health care for people overseas and not use that might
3:06 pm
hurt people the way the military does. ah, next slide, the popular messaging up telegraph might soon be restricted, and germany over claims is not doing enough to combat extreme is contented, covey, 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 pretty quick to point out tonight. when in 2018 russian court imposed restrictions on the telecom 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 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 apps for messaging. there's also
3:07 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 like, 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 fester there. and so right now, they 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
3:08 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 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 heard 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 and from the
3:09 pm
german public over this you can see one of the headlines, for example that there are, there are very, very heated debates over world tower targeting. telegram all sorts or all sorts of that. boucher as he of hatred for example. right now those politicians, those german politicians who are calling for a blockage of telegraph or to band the up. they are getting a bit of their own medicine. so now the public and their world politics, 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, are not being that dedicated to the freedom of speech. principal artes persisted channel in german, artie deutsch. it has been banned in germany,
3:10 pm
even though it had every legal right to exist there and to well, to appear on the air waves. 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 e u, 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. we spoke to, to mateo dani, a commentator at tech travel gigs, who thinks that block had just one platform under the de won't stop. the spread 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 that also dedicated social media platforms which
3:11 pm
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, more. the cobra headache, frances registered europe's highest, ever daily spike in covey cases with 200000. in the past 24 hours. the furnace is described as a tidal wave of policy is called the latest e laces 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,
3:12 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 day time and night time, the actual figures, 208000. now the french minister made that announcement while he was motivating to turn the mandatory health passed into a vaccination pass. in other words, people will have to show proof of vaccination if they're to enter any kind of public spaces, bars, restaurants, and cultural venues. at the same time, the health minister spoke about galloping circulation and said these kind of figures make you dizzy, agreeable to do them in music about the owner con, very him. but it's not just to waive anymore. given the numbers we are recording, it's a tidal wave. tonight's figures showed 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,
3:13 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, whatever comes and here, turning a health pass 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 is 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 delta strain. and they are increasing concerns that although the army con, so far, seems more debt. that certainly we are going to witness fine says health services been pushed to the limit and was trying to pipeline linking russia to germany is
3:14 pm
now been filled with natural gas. big mover that is ready to start, work soon, but it's a big but so on. whether it's will or not. it now just needs the green light from europe, and that is a big just to start supplying millions of households, nikiya and reports on the latest tonight. the $11000000000.00 project node stream 2 is now fully completed. the 2nd line is finished unfilled. it's been filled with gas and it's ready to deliver gas to it's grateful, european consumers, all it lacks is that one piece of paper, the final legal permission from german regulators. so it can finally get to work. did you build a connection to the now everything depends on our partners in europe. as soon as they decide to start work at 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 requested gas will immediately feel the difference. a pipeline, it will carry gas from western side barrier and double the existing capacity of the
3:15 pm
node stream one pipeline, delivering some 55000000000 cubic meters of gas to europe. and some at $26000000.00 german homes will be kept warm as a very affordable price. and for germany, which has seen gas prices skyrocketing amid rising demand and lack of supplies, the project really is the answer to that. pres, however, since the project was 1st announced in 95, it has been drawn over the way to put it simply, germany is just one of the countries which bodily needs this pipeline, but german allies and not so keen on the idea whatsoever. the concerns are by handing russia such potential leverage over european energy security at witi would enable it to use gas as a geopolitical weapon. not to put it simply. if mister putin should get annoyed by something he could just stump his boots on it, the wind pipe of europe, of course, this is something russia denies it denies harboring such plans whatsoever. but like
3:16 pm
i said, it's been drama all the way and the latest coming up just a few days ago after moscow was accused of limiting the current gas applies to europe in a bid to put pressure on the continent. but this is something that's been rubbish by, 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 as allows it to meet europe, ian 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 thoughts from russia is it fully expects that this plan the project to go ahead . there's no plan b and expect it to be in full working order by the middle of 2022. so our next button, indigenous leader in new zealand who says
3:17 pm
a straightly is using his country as a dumping ground. the national mary authority chairman, was calmer than to scrap its policy to pull to new zealand is when the convicted of crimes. it is not good enough that new zealand is 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 that you would expect between 2 neighbors. under a stroll in law, if foreign nationals a census to more than one year in prison, automatically lose the right then to stay in the country that applies even if they've lived in australia their entire life. the last couple of years have seen hundreds of people sent back a deed to new zealand studies, immigration, but it says defense of policy saying the government will continue to to expel foreign nationals who commit serious offenses, matthew,
3:18 pm
to khaki. those says it needs to work with new zealand to find a better solution than that. now, i also did that australian citizens, you know, it's easy just to deport the problem. a 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 data or an intelligence 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 where these drug supplies networks are establishing themselves across se asia, even into the pacific. been let's do that job together as australia and new zealand, and that an expert still come this. our hope you like how you look,
3:19 pm
by the way in out. he's world news at 11 with me. kevin, our parents shouldn't get to decide what they kids learn at school. but to think about that. so i thought, according to the author of a controversial us anti slavery project, it is the way things should be. we thrash that out in a bit with our invited guests after the break. ah, kaiser's financial survival guy. i don't buy, hey, i guy only features of the friday at the last time i buy it from a teacher. so crocker watch kaiser reporting who are all driven by dreamer shaped bankers and those with
3:20 pm
there's things 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 i gave you live without international kevin, i went ahead and here's what the ponder of your parent should you have a say what your children are taught at school. according to the coal 100 jones,
3:21 pm
you should not. she is the fund or the controversial 1619 project james to reframe us history in terms of race, of use and data 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 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 to the sheer, 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. halogens launched the 1619 project with new york times to years ago. it goes to highlight the legacy of slavery and
3:22 pm
contributions of black americans throw u. s. history. the date content from the project has been included in school curriculum in at least 5. you estates. we discussed it with the legal unless jennifer braden to master and also with political activist, antony rogers, 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 in 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 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 a carried out atrocities the fact that this nation was forge and
3:23 pm
a cauldron of white supremacy. slavery indigenous genocide and last 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 people on this 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 it started to import the 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
3:24 pm
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's happened in this country. them the heretic, things of laboring without having to completely de, do as completely unravel the fabric and the foundations of this country's history. but, but you know, when it comes to truth migrant and we are so far from when that used to mean it's not a relative term. a russian blogger accused defending terrorist ideologies been released from custody in st. petersburg. he's now subject
3:25 pm
to a night time home detention order. we'll try continues. the cases received huge publicity . russia, reaper tanker explains well, every time russian law enforcement is after bloggers, singers rappers with a multi 1000000 audience. it's always a big deal in this country. indeed, unity, human ski was a very popular blogger, and so the army of fans and followers the liberal media, they always follow every twist and turn of the case. so this decision to peddle back on the detention of blogger human ski, just before perhaps the number one holiday on the calendar here in russia. the new year's eve was a massive surprise for everyone here. indeed, now he will be allowed to go home, but there are still a number of restrictions in particular, kalonski 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. he was in detention
3:26 pm
since june this year after supposedly singing about a brutal terrorist act that happened almost 20 years in the russian capital that took the lives of $130.00 people. again. supposedly he used a swear word, which is synonymous to awesome about this act of terrorism. however, this is by far not the last chapter in his story. the trial continues, and the next decision by the court will be made right after the holidays on january the 8th, and have on sky could be back in detention. watch this space warning for russia snyder, new russian passenger planes ready to take to the skies the m as 21300. that had been beset by production, delays because of us sanctions on some key components. meaning russia had to then produce them domestically. but the trade minister says that actually worked out in the end, in russia's favor this was did work with. we lost almost 2 years. but now we've
3:27 pm
got our own composites our own way. so who lost out in the end, foreign companies missed out on $2000000.00 for each win set. so this is an investment in the development of russia economy, national aviation and technology. so we need to continue the process of finishing all certification procedures, and we'll do that. whatever circumstances arise. will m s 21 free 100 as capacity for 211 passengers. the certification process is nearly complete and deliveries the jew very soon to start in early 2022, in the production stages before the wings had been made by us and japanese firms. but as i mentioned after the u. s. sanctions in 2019 russia then had to spend more than $60000000.00 developing its own parts. and the asian expert romika serv spoke to us about it. he thinks those sanctions, and he would just an attempt to stifle competition. fancy the john the sanctioning a russian company is an example of unfair competition. and i don't pose any
3:28 pm
strategic or military threats to our foreign colleagues, or 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 the air bus 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 competitors. and the americans wanted to stop in emerging rival. there is also a that starts, he's well, these are the 11 from moscow with me, kevin, i will stand by the cross talk, stick around if you can, after the break. ah, [000:00:00;00]
3:29 pm
with oh, when i was sure seemed wrong when all 3, just a sheep out disdain becomes the advocate and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground.
3:30 pm
ah ah. with hello and welcome to cross stock where all things are considered. i am peter lavelle at the end of every year across soc 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. we will do our best to answer as many questions as we can ah
