ah ah, these dogs and patterns are deployed against anti locked down demonstrators in amsterdam with maggie, the order to break up the 1000 strong, legal rally. covey cases steadily surging. we look at how big pharma managed to benefit from the pandemic for 2020 walk from a power supply front records, migrant influx, the soaring inflation, and also on the high homicide rates. we looked at what made last year it difficult long for the united states. and also on the way, 19 years, 10 months at $25.00 days on these americans,
2:01 am
legacy party looked back at one of the defining moments of last year that disastrous us withdraw from afghanistan is brought the country to the brink of collapse with other great. now the weather is what 10 am here now in the russian capital. this is anti international cove cases are soaring across european nations. daily new infection rates are breaking old time records with france, leading the way it reported more than 200000 cases for a 4th day in a row. in the meantime, governments are again imposing harsh restrictions, especially on those who haven't been vaccinated yet. and it sparked a lot of anger and amsterdam, people went on to the streets to protest against locked down the clash with the police, seize dogs and battens to break up the illegal protest. ah
2:02 am
ah ah thousands of people, as you saw their rallying in the dutch capital on sunday, defying upon amidst the corona virus lockdown measures that have been in place in the netherlands for the last few weeks. now the right places you saw there with their battens and their shields were trying to break up, the crowds who had gathered in amsterdam to show their continued anger against the restrictions that are in place and also against vaccines. the local government, which had allured this particular gathering, had also issued an emergency ordinance which gave the police the right to head into
2:03 am
the central museum square. and to clear those protest is from that. but to despite that protest is turned out regardless. now the netherlands has been doing this extended lockdown our since december 19th. and as a result of that, restaurants a shot and all known a central shops are also shut. and that's going to take place and continue going on until at least the middle of the month of january, public gatherings. as part of these restrictions means that no more than 2 individuals can gather at the same time together. so this protest was clearly outside of the, the block. it's absolutely against those cart measures. but despite that, we saw this chaotic scenes in amsterdam as the police and those protest as were clashing something we have seen elsewhere to know across europe. there is, is concerned that yes, we're heading into 2022. it's yes. many people only think this is the time for
2:04 am
fresh opportunities of fresh chance. but there are many people who really fear that the fresh restrictions that are coming in to force mean this will be essentially another groundhog here, as the authorities continue to try and grapple with the virus. just to give you an example here in france, there are new restrictions coming into force. it includes a panel eating and drinking on long distance trains and also a requirement now for children as young as 6 to wear a mosque. meanwhile, those who remain unvaccinated, there is some really bad news. the national assembly is going to continue debating this week a new law that would essentially curb the liberties of those who remain and vaccinated further antigen or p c r. you will not be allowed into bars, restaurants, et cetera. and you can imagine that that is going to cause a lot of consternation here in france,
2:05 am
where around 10 percent of the population remains unvaccinated. there is anger here to resort. ringback with the new year's eve where there should have been celebrations, there were abandoned fireworks on the shells. alisa and cools the muted festivities . but in, despite that they were crowds. the buddhist on to the shoals, elisa, causing problems for the police there and across the country. we saw a much lamented new year's tradition making a big come back. this is the burning and torching of cause. almost $900.00 vehicles were burned on new year's eve is part of that. now there was also anger that's been felt in germany to with violent riots in some cities, including a in one where they were clashes between the police and protest. is there something we seem to be seen quite a lot of in europe at the moment. the protesters setting up barricades, but then even set those a light. now all of this comes amidst another grim milestone. the pandemic shows
2:06 am
that there have been over a 100000000 cases of covert a positive cases that have been quoted across the european region. however, did give you some light to this. this does come at a time when study says, suggesting that only cron is less likely to damage to lungs than previous variance, such as the delta variant or even the alpha beat of variance. and that it also provokes a less severe adamant type disease. so good news, but at the same time, with all the restrictions in place in the continuum, fear that we are seeing from authorities. many people will be questioning if this ongoing tightening of restrictions is in fact the right path to trade me while across the atlantic. the number of cobra cases there has served in the united states, the weekly average now surpassing 360000. throughout the ponder make,
2:07 am
the world health organization has reiterated the most effective way. i say to combat the viruses through vaccination. but while americans have been suffering, there is one sector that's en route health. that's big pharma, which reportedly as breaking in more than $90000000.00 each day. saskia taylor reports 2021 beer we discovered that ready no cure for greed. just off, big pharma, pfizer is forecasting $15000000000.00 in revenue from its covert vaccine this year, and it is our 1st profitable quarter hitting that $1900000000.00 mark a majority of which is their cobra. 1900 vaccine of course, $1000.00 every 2nd, pfizer buy on tech and modo now made $1000.00 every 2nd. but it turns out that drug companies like to pop to pills at once, money and power. and we're better to wield one's power than in washington. d. c. introducing congress says biggest lobbyist, big pharma, which last year dropped
2:08 am
a cool $266000000.00 to sway america. lawmakers though, given how the holy trinity of fires and madonna biotech was averaging over 900000000 a day last yet it's really just loose change less than 3 days. walk in fact for the rest of us. so it's an awful lot, you know what, there's also an awful lot of in the u. s. capital big pharma lope. yes. in fact, so many, but they are number congressmen. 3 to one. so what does all that cash exposure get them? well, pretty much anything that they want. this is a very powerful industry with significant lobbying clout, is very good at knowing exactly how many votes they need to kill pieces of legislation and figuring out a way to get those votes. it's funny though, because you'd think that with a democrat run house and senate pharmaceutical giant would have had a tough year after all thing years the party's been promising to fight the greed.
2:09 am
first, we'll take on the drug and insurance companies and hold them accountable for the prices they charge and the harm they cause about bringing the cost of prescription drugs down that pharmaceutical companies have been jacking up prices hand over fist for years. and then we'll tell the pharmaceutical companies, thanks, but no thanks for overpriced drugs pay the highest prescription drug prices of any developed nation in the world. it's called valiant pharmaceuticals. i'm going after them. we are going to stop this. this is predatory pricing, but enough is enough. the greed of the pharmaceutical industry is killing americans and making many of them much sicker than they otherwise would have been. it has got to stop. so we need congress to finish the job to come together and make a difference in people's lives. turns out though, making money is so much more fun than making a difference in people's lives. in fact, 60 percent of big farmers, you know, be money goes to democrats. so when in april upon was proposed to knock down drunk
2:10 am
prices surprise it got voted down one of the people against it, new jersey, senator bald mendez. you know how much menendez is pocketed from the drug, sloppy this year? $80000.00. then along came the build back bat act, which among other things, wanted to make medication actually affordable a ridiculous idea. so what did big pharma do? it splash some serious cash to block the bell. the farmer will spend due and say whatever it takes to defeat any legislation that will curb its unilateral power to dictate prices of prescription drugs. apparently the big farmer roles that live on left $1.00 and $4.00 americans unable to afford their regular medication is necessary because, well, research, we have an obligation to ensure that the sale of our medicines provides us with the resources necessary to invest and future research and development and while the
2:11 am
lobby of $1000000.00 ad failed, build back patches on the rocks anyway. so thank us crossed, we know what came as a real shock. other than politicians, putting money for people and pharmaceutical giants. not caring about public health . the fact that big pharma pays diety 1st drug companies have raised prices with abandon, especially when they succeed in delaying or blocking competition. in some cases, tied to higher pay for executives. second, companies have manipulated the patent system and marketing exclusive. it is to extend their monopolies. 3rd, all the companies, the commission investigated, have employed anticompetitive strategies to suppress generic competition. really, there's no one i'd rather have control of light saving medication. oh, all so it wouldn't be mad at the panic lasted just a little while longer. they got on a pair of it and they want to keep this path there. and these other therapeutics aren't really going to make them a lot of money. politicians and big pharma,
2:12 am
hard at work in dc, saving lives, serving the people, and showing each and every day that there's no drug, more addictive than money, power and everything in between. now it wasn't just coded, forgiving the u. s. a headache in 2021. the migrant crisis along the southern border record homicide rates. the major cities added to the was, for instance 2021. we chicago's deadly. see if a 25 years coming as it did the mid the d fund, the police movement was he's kelly moore. ben takes us through the major challenges that america face last year. 2021 is going to be a hard year to forget. americans have been through a lot in the last 12 months. the year began with a tough challenge for green energy, low temperature is hit. the united states by surprise, texas was the worst hit because 25 percent of its electricity comes from wind
2:13 am
turbines. they stop spinning and froze. the texas governor blamed joe biden and his new environmental regulation was a disaster that ensued texas is going to protect the oil and gas industry from any type of hostile attack launched from washington d. c. president obama, post wind turbines. pretty hard. and despite last, winter's disaster biden is still giving them the roll. key plank of our build back better recovery plan is building a modern, resilient climate infrastructure and clean energy future that will create millions of good pain, union jobs. all that go friendly energy was not prepared for some cold weather. energy providers could not manage utility bills were through the roof. i'm pretty much paid $9.00. a kilowatt like tricity, but i was very conservative with my electricity, so i have no idea exactly why this bill is so much but steadily going up. i
2:14 am
absolutely cannot afford it. i'm not exactly sure. you know, who can it's gotten to the point where some people have totally turned off their power because they can't afford methods enough. they, they just can't afford it. it's a basic necessity for living. basic utilities should not cost $1000.00 and then there was cove it the total death toll in america rose to about $800000.00 . jo, biden's, coven mandate, requiring people to get the job in order to keep their jobs resulted in employee shortages protests and even rioting. many different reasons were cited my people for reposing it no more. oh, i important public services like firefighters, police and even airlines were
2:15 am
a hard hit. despite government attempts to convince people that vaccination against cove it is vital, a lot of people fear. and i think rightly so that they could end up on the street with no paycheck in the united states. we're already under a very st. i would call a severe shortage of qualified individuals to be mechanics, to be fine at tennis, to be pilots, specifically, half of the industry could potentially be gone to lunch. is coven, it's killing people. st. crime is getting worse. many cities had the highest crime rates they've ever had since the ninety's i did i did last year, the rallying cry was defined the police,
2:16 am
but many are starting to back track on that, saying they don't feel safe and they need protection on the police just as a regular rule has been colossal failure. he plays in, tried to implement de, from the police crime has gone up. when has been york chicago in the, in l. a. it's, it's been a colossal failure because what stops crying? what brings crime down, especially violent crime or more police on the streets? you have to have police on the street in order for your street be safe. now things have also been heating up on the border. 2000000 migrants had been arrested illegally crossing the border. that's the highest rate in 20 years. now many thought that joe biden's election on a promise of softer immigration policies was a signal that opened up the floodgates. but in reality, vital did not end up changing many of trumps immigration policies. asylum seekers still have to wait in mexico and the detention facilities along the us. mexico
2:17 am
border are still just as ugly. how many children have been in the biden cages and calendar year 20? $21.00. senator. i respectfully disagree with your use of the term cages. by the way, here's a photograph of the biden cages that as a center that is precisely why articulated children getting on floors crashed in upon each other. when i took this photograph, the cobra rate of cobra positivity was over 10 percent. all of this while prices are rising, inflation is the name of the game. the usa is facing the highest rate of inflation in 40 years with more than half of americans saying they think the biden administration is only making things worse. it's been a terrible year for inflation. it's up around 8 percent or higher. this is the levels that we haven't seen since back in the jimmy carter years in the seventy's when the government just prints money out of thin air and spends it on things and
2:18 am
gives it to people. it causes the value of your money to go down. that's what's happening in america. the government is printing money, spending more than it brings in, and actually the proposals to deal with it mostly are going to make things worse. the u. s. a leaving afghanistan after 20 years of military presence forced washington to answer some questions about whether hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars were basically left to waste. not forgetting the countless lives lost on both the american and afghan side ah. in the
2:19 am
extraordinary success of this mission was due to the incredible skill, bravely and sulphur scourge united states military and our diplomat and intelligence professionals. it was designed to save american lives. this left the majority of americans blaming joe biden, for the afghan. pull out with politicians from all across the political spectrum, joining the chorus, the most illegal migrant crossings in 20 years. the highest crime rates in 30 years and a 40 year high and inflation as well as the end of a to decade, military operation. after a year of bad records. many americans are hoping that 2022 will bring respite. caleb bobbin our to new york. ah
2:20 am
canister is on the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe. millions of people are facing starvation, cold weather battery. the population of the country's economy was on his knees. it shrunk by nearly half in the month since the devastating us withdraw the hasty american exit. so tragic scenes unfold, ah, thousands of afghans tried to flee the country during and after the american evacuation it led to catholic scenes to at campbell airport as well as panic across the capitol. multi senior correspondent reg as the f was in cobble force at the time in 2001. it began with with righteousness and pomp. invade of got to start to fight for freedom to fight terrorism and make the world a better place. 19 years,
2:21 am
10 months and $25.00 days on. this is america's legacy. destroyed and sabotaged equipment. a country bought a ruin and still in control of the talbot. that is the ultimate tragedy of the afghan war at was entirely and violently pointless. years and years of an obliging little questioning media. fooled billions into believing that there was progress that america could win total victory over the taliban to taliban flat, the end of the taliban. taliban leadership on the run. and now the question is, how do you handle that? success ah, it, it wasn't supposed to be this way. the taliban wasn't supposed to sweep the country in mere weeks. the pentagon spent a decade preparing to leave of gaston,
2:22 am
and even they weren't ready for this. together with our eyes, we will complete our mission bear. by the end of this year, i announced a timeline for drawing down our forces. we are working to finally and america's longest war. his time ended for evermore merrick. his proudest movement of the afghan war wasn't supposed to be a humiliating evacuation under the guns of the taliban. but it was, there is absolutely nothing else to celebrate. the united states ended 20 years of war in afghanistan, the longest war in american history. we completed one of the biggest air lives in history, with more than 120000 people evacuated to safety. no nation, no nation has ever done anything like it in all history. the only the united states had the capacity in the will and billing to do it. and we did it today. where was
2:23 am
the afghan army? where was the western backed government? where did all the money go? the united states sunk more than a $100000000000.00 in the rebuilding of data stock for reference adjusted for inflation. that is more than the united states spent on the marshal plot to rebuild europe after world war 2. and the tragedy of it is that for a civilian the side from all the american weapons and the taliban hads berries almost no evidence that any of that money ever passed through here from broken roads that lead to nowhere to abandoned hospitals from twisted contracts isn't corrupt, leaders of janice, dawn can arguably be called the largest money laundering operation in human history . the united states is also committed to playing a leading role in the reconstruction of afghanistan.
2:24 am
ah ah ah. the taliban now has more black hawk helicopters than 85 percent of countries in the world. ah, al qaeda and isis k still exist in our growing and afghanistan, and eventually they acquire these weapons. ah, we now have americans stuck in afghanistan to tell van in charge
2:25 am
the smoke more weaponry they've ever had in the past of order that is, of the taliban now controls more of the country than it did before. the us invaded its new government this field with what dynamo, bay inmates, and terrorist mac dean who even have american bounties on their heads. what washington achieved was the absolute opposite of what had intended. the bombing at campbell airport during the evacuation epitomized the afghan war, a senseless act, devoid of reason, which needless, he cut short. so men, we will not forget. we will hunt you down to make you pay. we've heard the same promise before. 20 years ago when america was united and when it thought that it could change the world when it thought it was invincible. and
2:26 am
when the people believed a president's promise more, i guess if archie couple of galveston will buy before the taliban had retaken control the u. s tried to support the african army with his strong programs. this part of our unheard voice is project we spoke with a afghan format, predator drone operator, who told us that he believes the strikes. he was asked conduct led to the loss of innocent life. after my 1st shot, i took into 3 innocent men killed that i believe in this, and i called my mother afterwards and cried. and she told me that it was good that i felt bad about it. because if i felt good about it, i was, i would just be another psychopath. ah
2:27 am
. anyway, i was going to get in the military showed up one day and i will pay for your education if you, sir, for a minimum of 4 years. and how can anyone turn, ah, surgeon, comes down and turns around. now go to the military trader, asking since your job is to kill people and break things. so you've got all these young enlisted and girls, 1000 guys who are out of high school, grab no experience in anything who are now basically video game snipers for months of training. made that put in the position to make these decisions. the are i
2:28 am
the 1st 3 months i was inactive missions. i watched enemy forces die or friendly forces die and the forces die and then anything innocent people die. and so i got to see like the impact on everybody. ah ah, degredation with the proper term, every shot that we took, like they're cheering their congratulating each other. they're high fiving each other, people are getting promoted because of this stuff. that's like a withering away of who you are. me
2:29 am
when you were hunting, a man named lucky he was a mom from pm and, ah, i was told one day going in that president obama himself was up and give the order himself to me. and i got this euphoric feeling. the death of a lock is a major blow to all kind of most active operational affiliate. and then his 16 year old son was killed 2 weeks later in a joint. right. when i asked some of the people that i knew why they struck abdul romanella lucky, they said that because we didn't want them to come. the 1st thing that trump did in office was kill and we're lucky 8 year old daughter. well, we see that the only thing is with the terrorist. you have to take out their
2:30 am
families, maybe to them, it seems practical, but to me it seems even, ah, there was an incident involved killing of civilians. they might have been to new zealand white civilians in afghanistan. president obama got on television himself and was saying it was not the fault of intelligence or the military leadership is defaulted, the drone operators that cause this. and that really upset me because we get no intel, i felt like he was blaming me. commander in chief of the united states military was pointing a little me and saying, oh, all those things that were other people's fault. it's actually your, ah, i didn't.
