5:02 am
might say to ourselves that we could have done better that we made mistakes all this is true we all need to make an additional effort over the coming months this is what i ask of us collectively tonight new lockdown measures will be extended from 19 areas to all of mainland france from saturday this means a nationwide curfew beginning at 7 pm will be imposed and travel between regions will be banned the french president's also said schools will be closed for at least 3 weeks and announced additional policing to ensure no more than 6 people can gather at once the measures introduced by the president come as a complete u. turn to his previous decision not to lock down in january despite repeated calls from experts is now receiving mounting criticism from scientists and hospital chiefs. i say to the government do it now do it now or do it for a shorter time but do it to concede their right not to implement
5:03 am
a lockdown in france at the end of january because we didn't have the explosion of cases that every model predicted france's president is without doubt an educated man emmanuel macro and through through the country's top institutions before making a mark in both the private or public sector he then repaying france's youngest ever president i mean it's a pretty impressive resume and people traded in selfless and learned he knew when to take advice it is important at this time by following the advice of scientists as we've just done to ensure the continuity of democratic life and our institutions but now it seems being top dog isn't quite enough not grown his throwing himself into an entirely new discipline the president has acquired real expertise in health issues it is not an inaccessible subject for an intelligent person like him considering the important time he has dedicated to it for several months not cause

aids if he wouldn't be declared that he has become an epidemiologist despite not having a scientific background in these claims over. seas on health issues have also rubbed the wrong way. mr president of the republic and in the framework of the pandemic just like all heads of states he has become interested in epidemiological data yes to put his nose to the grindstone he's obliged to take notice of trends but that doesn't make him an epidemiologist of course for all those that talk about epidemiology and among them we can find heads of states like president mccrone who talks about epidemiology just like we talk about politics when we talk about sculpture or about music but they're not necessarily sculpture artists. for musicians. in britain there are fears of a nursing exodus for a survey revealed n.h.s. staff are now more likely to quit their jobs citing exhaustion from the pandemic
5:05 am
according to the poll one in 4 n.h.s. workers are more inclined to leave than they were last year well most 30 percent of them and nurses and midwives to occupations that are facing major shortages 70 percent said the pay rise is the deciding factor while those working for free namely student nurses are struggling just to make ends meet one of them gave us her reaction to the survey findings it doesn't surprise me it's what we've had to use it needs increased workload. not the cost of living has gone up the wages have increased but it's so much stress on the nurses that midwives everyone involved in that question and i think to be honest with the kind of a pandemic i think everyone has now had enough and they need help and i feel the government need to help and increase the wages to get a good environment for everyone the british health authorities in turn have promised to provide the n.h.s. with an extra $29000000000.00 pounds the nurse we spoke to though says that money
5:06 am
isn't making any real difference when it comes to student medics. we get the 5000 pounds and some people get a 2000 pound grant depending if it were children or what feels like i'm in shape but in reality is it's all in the i should if they increase in childcare costs you know the increasing council tax increase in fuel into placement in my 1st year i visit state of freight back twice. and that should aid the nest states that were actually retired nurses at the bank they could have been laid to say should i go into this position because i have a rabbi they are 2 children and that's why my wife required what was quite a full time childcare and the other one it just started sco the funds come for you all to have already signed up for the course of a for you potential if she leaves the coals and it does add to the mental so that the sorry sorry. meanwhile the u.k. sports minister is being lampooned on line after he suggested people should avoid

hugging to save lives people took issue with the way he described hugs as off behavior. despite the temptation please help. by actually hunting. the disease to see somebody. and maybe call him. where can i report you because if you think you're promoting normal behavior you need to check out from the neck up what script are you reading from no same individuals would put this out there as normal. behaving in a way choice of words to describe family members hoping one another. in other

words if you see someone behaving like a human being then call them out. and he called his many colleagues who have been found guilty of various actions ready ready. along the way to report on the origins of covert 19 his facial criticism worldwide with some countries saying the investigation wasn't extensive enough as many questions still remain unanswered the director general himself called for further studies after the report was published we got a firsthand account of the w.h.o. mission from a russian member of the team. this will cause our
5:09 am
mission started off under phase one why was it called that it was clear from the beginning nobody expected us to find answers to all the questions right away in fact it was prepared to rework aimed at analyzing the data we had accumulated and establishing hypotheses in general it's hard to predict how long this investigation will take and how it will end but it should be done that's for sure it. will go as we say or we've managed to find out that the virus supposedly emerged in the period between the middle of november and the beginning of december however we don't know the exact location of the outbreak in my view it was in china but it's not clear yet it's unlikely though that the outbreak occurred in a wet market most probably it was some market visitor who had already been infected and spread the virus this suggestion derives from the fact that there were quite a large number of patients who had nothing to do with the markets we don't know who the 1st patient was neither do we know the natural origin of covert 19 based on our
5:10 am
common knowledge of various coronaviruses we suggest it's a but might have been a source of. the issue is very much politicized everyone is trying to find someone to blame i've never considered the oblique hypothesis a theory there's so much talk about this in the media though but people don't really have an idea there is no scientific evidence or facts proving a leak as of today based on what we saw i can say that the suspect in a laboratory is run properly by well trained staff there is total compliance with all the rules regarding work with viruses of this has a class or even the class above the laboratory is regularly audited and is in the constant scrutiny of competence international organizations building from that we def or can't say that a lab leak might have been the cause. we didn't feel any pressure coming from our chinese colleagues actually it wouldn't
5:11 am
even be the case i can't think of how they could have put pressure on us we are in no way affiliated with china people from various countries were part of our team who went to carry out this investigation on behalf of the w.h.o. and what would have been the point of pressurising us we hardly liaise with officials we were largely in touch with scientists. a cold reception georgian hospitality was not extended to a famous russian t.v. host on wednesday he was basically forced out of the country following violent protests upon his arrival let him hit pause there had gone to georgia to celebrate his 87th birthday. thanks. eggs were thrown and whistles were blown as protesters gathered outside posner's hotel they were taking exception to previous comments made about georgia and the cars here which have been engaged in a long running dispute clashes with police ensued when protesters tried to enter
5:12 am
the hotel building they claim the russian host wasn't welcome as he didn't respect georgia's territorial integrity and says there was no political motivation behind his birthday trip. those who think that politics and sports shouldn't mix have been taken aback by the u.s. olympic and paralympic committee's latest decision it's ok to certain racial and social justice demonstrations that trials and racial and social justice demonstration is specifically aimed at promoting the human dignity of individuals or groups that have historically been under represented minority ties to all marginalized in their respective societal context. well under the new guidelines certain gestures and types of clothing are permitted athletes can now for example wear hats with phrases like black lives matter and equality but also avoid sanctions if they speak up for the rights of minorities neal during the national

anthem or hold up their fist on the podium the making of political statements in sports long been a controversial matter for instance in 2016 the english national football team was slapped with a $35000.00 pound fine by fee for wearing remembrance day poppies in a world cup qualifier the rise of the black lives not a movement to see many athletes taking up the cause with footballers and tennis players among those showing solidarity at manches we've got reaction on the matter from sports columnist alan moore. i was he told me this has been very well thought through and i spoke with us i did hear confuse and discussed a couple sports where i was a very sad stop and those people who were very very forcefully enough use of color say although there are people who are early for this and you're not i won't name names there so who are benefiting from this by rage. or being very clear today are you know just kind of skewed or getting around to date are all this

current he should be losing out for example. instead of being rehabilitated and given a voice so that i just sort of the odds of this. who's joined in are to. come play a vaccine passport some ask monday tell the latest bugs of contention between democrats and republicans in america bring that story in full after the break. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race is on offense very dramatic developments only closely and going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very

welcome back the pandemic has laid bare a whole host of political divisions in the u.s. especially over how to respond to the crisis now democrats and republicans a slugging it out over mask mandates and vaccine passports morgan takes a look at the latest clashes. joe biden says america is going to start getting back to normal in the coming summer months but what is that going to look like will normal only be for vaccinated folks while everyone else stays home such talk is being met with fury from republicans who are set against it especially when it comes from democrats who oppose id checks considering that democrats want to require vaccine i.d.'s for people to conduct their basic daily activities they now have 0 grounds to objects to voter id laws he funded democrat logic you should need a $92.00 and even a grocery stool surely there wouldn't be an objection to showing an id to legally
5:17 am
vote vaccine credentials would be a complete government over step individuals in america have a personal responsibility for their health the governor of florida is now promising a state wide ban it's completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply be able to participate in normal society you want the fox to guard the hen house i mean give me a break i think this is something that has huge privacy implications it is not necessary to do democrats are standing their ground now the 1st leader to propose the idea of vaccine passports was andrew cuomo the governor of new york state back at the beginning of the pandemic he was a glowing hero in mainstream media but sense that his image has significantly faded but his idea of vaccine passports with q.r. codes that will be scanned by businesses for admission is catching on madison
5:18 am
square gardens is already saying it will be a requirement and republicans now face mainstream media ridicule for their opposition to the proposal and irresponsibly they're being stupid right which is very rich coming from the party that wants 9 forms of identification before you can vote the right would have you believe that a vaccine paul spoke is a fact. really big brother coming for you and your family now the white house has confirmed it is working with the private sector to develop vaccine passports however they insist they are not keeping a database of who is and who is not vaccinated at the federal level so let the political games begin it's just like the mask man day now at this point 16 states have either lifted their mass mandate or never had one to begin with and now joe biden is urging them to reinstate it as there's a surge of cases i'm reiterating my call for every governor mare and local leader to maintain and really stay to match meant. at least this is not politics
5:19 am
republican governors do not seem to appreciate joe biden's plea in fact the governor of arkansas has moved up the lifting of the mast mandate by an entire day he says the case numbers are showing a downward trend and now we have the mainstream media pressing the white house about whether or not joe biden is just being ignored for the. norm you oh i don't think we see it that way jeff but i would say that one of the ways we can impact people across the country is bag knowledge ng this is hard the shenanigans are starting to sound a little bit less like they're motivated by concerns about public health and more like some classic american political squabbling the kind that's been around long before covert 19 and i'm going to reflect on the train feeling i have and. we have so much to look forward to so much promise and potential of where we are and so much reason for hope all right now i'm scared the war continue vaccine passports
5:20 am
mask mandates every new proposed measure seems to present a new opportunity for us decided to further polarize ideally i mean would be great if politicians focused on something other than creating political division and advancing special interests and the like but they don't and. coronavirus overseeing is that politicians are using the panic to funnel money to their corporate allies you see this through the plans to create required vaccinations which of course by necessity bring a huge amount of money to the pharmaceutical companies that are producing those vaccinations and so we're seeing a lot of things that look a lot more like corruption and a lot less like trying to actually provide guides for the american people as far as i know there is no meaningful plan in place to go back to complete normalcy to you know pretty coronavirus type behavior i don't see there is bet that a vaccine passport to go to normal places could possibly be seen as something
5:21 am
constitutional the united states presidency has lost the trust of the people and they did they didn't do this all at once that didn't happen because a crowd of ours they've just been lying to the american people about a lot. joe biden may have claimed diplomacy is back on taking office but it seems a number of us organizations disagree 27 in fact have signed a joint letter to the president urging him to step back from his tough talk on russia is what the statement says we deeply alone by the recent negative exchanges between leaders of the 2 countries with more than 90 percent of the world's nuclear warheads in there as americans we urge the biden administration to stop participating in such reckless rhetorical exchanges and to instead vigorously pursue nuclear arms negotiations with the russian government a call follows a number of recent heated exchanges between the russian and u.s. presidents they included biden recently agreeing in an interview that putin was

quote a killer since entering office in january the new u.s. president's repeatedly said he would be taking a firmer line with moscow than his predecessor who discussed the issue with danielle o'brien who signed the statement. you know the old old game driven by the military industrial complex which is about making profit for more and the heads of those company weapon making companies and you know weapons of war making companies have control 'd of a lot of the people in our our congress in both parties and they have enormous power i think people need to talk about peace and they need to talk about. the end of war no matter who is against we live in peace in this world because we have a lot of things we have to do to address other issues that you know are more more. important than war and you know and threatening people and

not not being good neighbors. or masks and single he says gloves have arguably been saving lives during the pandemic environmentalist are worried that they may be doing irrevocable harm to animals around the world after being discarded a study in the journal biology cites examples of fish trapped in latex gloves birds entangled in masks and a whole host of animals from monkeys in malaysia to penguins in south america with rubber gloves in the stomachs researchers have been gathering data from veterinarians wild luck groups and trash collectors around the globe we spoke with the authors of the report about the findings. all started with the find of a fish up works and trapped in a lab explodes here in the lone canals and every sunday we go out with a team of volunteers to collect a litter to do a cleanup and it's only a volunteer it turns to us and said well i found a glove but there is
5:24 am
a fish inside and it was certainly a strange moment to see this serve little fish and slept in the glove and then you realize like this is very set. very sept ready but how often does this actually happen and we have no clue so then we started to search for other examples of the impact of our you litter on the animal life and actually the rest quite a lot find. now according to that study we just talked about humanity uses 129000000000 facemask 65000000000 gloves each month for example in the u.k. medical p.-p. items were found nearly a 3rd of all monitored beaches just 3 months that is after face coverings became obligatory that one of the researchers behind the report says it's time the government stepped in we really think the government should step up and really encourage you know using were usable items because it's not taking into account when producing these single use products it's also affecting wildlife that is being

model of the black hole. show it's seemed wrong. but old old just don't call. me old but yet to shape out does they become agitated and engage with equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy going for him to let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic development only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical
5:28 am
time to sit down and talk. i am max keiser this is the kaiser report you know i see you that's right bob i see you standing in the hotel room right now eating a croissant drinking orange juice. well holy kidding i don't actually see you but soon that will be the case since max you and i have been talking about something called the fisa duties trap which is as a rising power takes over the declining power over says us we see a process of digital ization happening and we're seeing that play out across their surveillance capitalism that panopticon built by private corporations for the most
5:29 am
part and now we're seeing it play out in a geo political level because all of our cars are spying us our refrigerators are spying on us our washing machines are spying on us our computers are spying on us all of the things smart phones everything around us is spying on us they're collecting data on us they say it's just for corporate reasons for profit they're selling ads they want to know their customers better but it turns out that there's actually a way to these companies are making a profit for their shareholders this is what the shareholders demand they've got that data why not make profit from it so what a lot of car companies are now doing is they're selling all the data they collect on you just to help you the customer they're selling it to private groups who then sell it to the government to you know target people around the world so 1st here's this headline this surveillance company claims a contract nearly any car in real time a defense contractor that claims to have access to motor vehicle location data on a global scale says it wants to use that data to help u.s.
5:30 am
federal agencies conduct more efficient spying and military operations the ulysses group which offers cutting edge operational and intelligence services support equipment to government clients says it can access over $15000000000.00 vehicle locations worldwide every month this data which can be viewed historically or in real time should be used operationally by u.s. agencies the company says so this is surveillance capitalism is done for profit so therefore can you complain about it because it's not done by the government but as done by a private company who profits by selling it to the guy. well we're heading to the singularity right and because the 3 major components of the surveillance state band aware and storage digital storage and digital processing those are the 3 components and they're all crashing in price to 0 they go down the simpatico curve to 07 actually will be storing transmitting and processing and for chile infinite amount of data in this will be processed for us by these huge tech companies and what will
