ah, ah, it's our america's budget priorities. put the pent again before the pandemic as president biden signs offer a massive $700000000000.00 defense plan. well, washington's global vaccination campaign keeps running out of money. german politicians call to ban the popular messaging telegram over hosting hate speech and kobe conspiracy theories. but moscow says last, double standards of the german media criticized russia in the past for 20 same thing just a few years ago. and a mary leader slams australia's policy of automatically deporting new zealanders convicted the crimes even if they spent their entire lives in australia. it is not good enough that new zealand is becoming a penal colony for australia and just reporting your problem. why does not solve
4:01 pm
the problem of gangs and both australia and new zealand with hello hello from of international moscow will welcome to our world news at midnight with me, kevin o in 1st. and while the global covey pandemic continues, america has a different priority. it seems with joe biden, our signing a massive $700000000000.00 military budget for the upcoming year in by america's own estimate. that's a 100 times more than the cost of vaccinating the entire planet is our senior correspondent. it's bigger than it's better 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 to sri the paper. every day china russia
4:02 pm
ran in yet that budget was actually pro 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 know make is 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
4:03 pm
a decimal here, a decimal. where rounding up and down by, by hundreds of millions, 16 times greater than rushes, 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 ease of low emission initial fee and net 0 initial energy technologies in the operations programs, project and activities, and the department provided. these is cost effective on the life cycle of the investment. 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,
4:04 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 dummy's, chinese interests or hurt overall bilateral ties and cooperation and important areas. while the l g b t, q plus community may, lays 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
4:05 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
4:06 pm
hurt people the way the military does. ah, the popular messaging on telegram had some be restricted in germany of the claims is not doing enough to come but extremist content and cove conspiracy theories. but when the clot back a bit, it wasn't that long ago when german media was criticizing russia for trying to impose similar restrictions as moscow was quick to point out. when in 2018 russian court imposed restrictions on the telecom ap and prevent attended messages, almost every german 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 targeting 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 and apps for messaging. there's also
4:07 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 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, 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 will 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
4:08 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 it has to be much reaction and from the
4:09 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 of 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,
4:10 pm
even though it had every legal right to exist there and to well, to appear on the air waves. germany justified their 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 that germany is not as dedicated to the freedom of speech principal as it may be wants to appear. we spoke at all as matter, dani, a commentator at tech, travel geeks who things blocking just one platform and the day isn't going to stop the spread of extremist content. obviously. telegram the users who and telegram at the moment, i 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, they're also dedicated social media platforms which make it even easier to
4:11 pm
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. ah, francis registered europe's highest ever daily spike in coven cases, with 200000 in the past 24 hours. the health wellness is describing as a tidal wave. and his policy is probably the latest. he 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,
4:12 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 daytime and nighttime, the actual figures, 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'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. if you're able to do that with music about the owner con, very him, but it's not just to waive any money. 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 the one group is people who are
4:13 pm
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 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 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 mauldin that certainly we are going to witness francais health services being pushed to the limit bigger than that, than old stream to pipe by linking russia to germany is now been filled with
4:14 pm
natural gas and is ready to start, work it now just a say just needs the green light from europe, and that's the big thing to start supplying, willing to household. what is the karen's got more on it? the $11000000000.00 project node stream 2 is now fully completed. the 2nd line is finished on fill, 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 that will carry gas from western side barrier and double the existing capacity of the node stream one pipeline,
4:15 pm
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, a mid rising demand and lack of supplies, the project really is the answer to that. pres, however, since the project was 1st announced in $95.00, it's just been drawn over the way to put it simply, germany is just one of the countries which badly 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. it witty, 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
4:16 pm
i said, it's been drama all the way and the latest coming up just a few days ago. often, 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 ass 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 starts from russia is it fully expects 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 2020 to the care. and the story next about indigenous leader in new zealand. the same strain is using is countries a dumping ground, the national murray authority chairman, once cumber,
4:17 pm
than to scrap his current policy of deporting new zealanders when the convicted of crimes. it is not good enough that new zealand is becoming a penal colony for australia and just supporting 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. let me tell him, or under a strange law, if foreign nationals a sentence to more than one year in prison, they automatically lose the right to stay in the country that applies even if they've lived in australia their entire lives. the last couple of years indeed have seen hundreds of people sent back to new zealand, australia immigration ministers, defended the policies, saying the government will continue to to expel foreign nationals who commit serious offenses. my few to khaki. those as it needs to work better with new
4:18 pm
zealand to find better solutions. now i also did that australian citizens, 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 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, and it would be good to see if we could just increase and including invest in 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. and then let's do that job together as australia and new sealants in that and say experience it's coming up to midnight 90 moscow tons his
4:19 pm
arts. he's world news at midnight with me. kevin o' in ahead. parents shouldn't get to decide what they kids learn at school. you apparently what you think about that, but it's according to the author of a controversial us anti slavery project. we thrash that in a bit with ara invited guests after the break. ah, i mean with
4:20 pm
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 will do our best to answer as many questions as i say i go good morning for me, kevin. out here most go now. should parents have more say, in what their children are taught at school? when, according to the coal, hannah jones, they should not. she is the founder, the controversial $1619.00 project, which seems to reframe
4:21 pm
u. s. history in terms of race. and her views are divisive to 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 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 should be listened to on. must have a platform or moved. sorry, but parents must be involved. come on, you pesky parents. just let her indoctrinate your kids in peace. but a back, sorry. hannah jones launched the 1619 project with new york times 2 years ago. its goal is to highlight the legacy of slavery, the contributions of black americans throughout u. s. history into content from the project has been included in school curriculum
4:22 pm
in at least 5. you estates, we discussed some more with legal analysts, jennifer braden de master and political activist, anthony 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 to 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 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 in a cauldron of white supremacy. slavery indigenous genocide and lance matching is
4:23 pm
not alive at the end of the day. this is a fear of the raid from hearing and having to embrace the truth. and 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 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 cheer people apart from each other. truth is truth. if truth is
4:24 pm
going to hurt people that's on, on the people, and what you just heard in is very myopic. and silly. 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 and we are so far from when that used to mean it's not a relative term. the russian blog accused of defending terrorist ideology has been released from custody in st. petersburg is no subject to a nighttime home detention order. well, the trial continues, the cases received huge publicity are in russia. and if a try and explains more,
4:25 pm
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 since june this year after supposedly singing about
4:26 pm
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 and 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 ski, could be back and detention. watch this space. watch in this space. monies for rush ready, russian passenger played is ready to take the skies. the m. s 21300. that was beset by production delays previously because a u. s. sanctions on some key components. meaning russia had to produce them domestically in the end, but they try. but as to says that, that actually worked in russia's favor, it was 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,
4:27 pm
foreign companies missed out on $2000000.00 for each wednesday. so this is an investment in the development of russia economy, national association and technology. so we need to continue the process of finishing all certification procedures. and we'll do that, whatever circumstances are the study 1300 as a capacity for 211 passengers. the certification process is nearly complete delivery to stop soon in 2022. due to start in the earlier production stages. as mentioned, the wings had been made by us and japanese firms, but also the us sanctions in 2019 russia had to spend more than $60000000.00 developing its own parts. education expert romika, sorrow thinks those sanctions to were just an attempt to stifle competition. a sunset dejani per sanctioning. a russian company is an example of unfair competition. they don't pose any strategic or military threats to our foreign colleagues, or it's a civilian company with civilian oriented products. it is obvious that the
4:28 pm
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 competitors. and the americans wanted to stop an emerging rival is also part of that thought his world is at midnight from moscow with me, kevin o' in standby for our next programs and your part of the will. and i thought was more about sitting ah well happy new year special kaiser report with the one and only gerald salenti, originator of the transport gas man you know, stuff with
4:29 pm
ah, ah, no one is starting at the age of 14 and battled for the next 5 years his addiction eventually became psychotic, using very high potency wax, and he jumped off a 6 story building. i guess that was the only way to do how to end. ah, today we're at the 2015 honda. we're here what all we've hottest
4:30 pm
or we've seen him with edible and some of the people in colorado. the early 2, thousands, colorado became kind of a test bed for medical, and then later recreational marijuana. you know, at the time i wasn't really concerned, i didn't have a strong opinion about it. either way. i didn't know that marijuana had changed so drastically from when we were younger. when johnny turned 18, he was able to very easily get a, a medical card and then he was able to legally purchase, possess, and consume very high th c products that led to the psychosis. you know, he ultimately died as a result of the psychosis brought on by.
