7:04 am
don't think it's safe they have been several suspicious cases in sicily and for that reason i preferred not to risk my health from what i've heard so far i do not trust it i heard about the thrombosis cases the percentage is minimal but given a choice i would feel more protected with a vaccine with fewer side effects the result was the possibility of an error but a virus is more dangerous than the vaccine i would prefer to get vaccinated. there have been many deaths we don't know this is related to the vaccine or not we're all free at the moment i don't want to take the astra zeneca shot i'll probably wait for the. meanwhile vaccine to resume his on the rise the middle faltering road and distrust in certain jobs we follow one frenchman travel all the way to moscow here to get inoculated with sputnik they will have a look at his story in a few minutes. that washington has secured agreements with mexico

honduras and guatemala to boost its troop presence at their borders in a bid to slow migration to the united states the move comes amid reports that the biden ministration is also considering handing cash to central american states to stop the flow critics to say the president should direct that money to help america's own in need this kind of mafia explains. with 170000 people picked up along the u.s. border just last month the migrant crisis is rapidly spinning out of control and the biden administration is scrambling to deal with it. 8 8 8 at the end of the. earth. and the current plan dollars and lots of them in the form of foreign aid president
7:06 am
biden wants to try and buy a way out of his border crisis with taxpayer money the administration is spending $60000000.00 a week and now wants to launch a cash transfer program in central america this insults millions of americans who are out of what can a country the plan is for billions of dollars to go to guatemala honduras and el salvador now it's not exactly clear how this is going to work but the white house insists it won't be just direct cash payments to potential migrants is one thing i can promise you is the u.s. government isn't going to be handing out money checks to people let's not forget that back in 2009 the usa worked to topple the government of honduras ushering in a decade of instability and chaos let's also remember that white amala has had various u.s. backed military regimes so what exactly led to this stampede toward the u.s. border the trail goes straight back to the white house the united states says moral
7:07 am
leadership on refugee issues was a poor in a bipartisan consensus for so many decades when i 1st got here we shine a light into lamp a lot of liberty an oppressed people were offered safe havens for those slain violence or persecution and our example pushed other nations to open wide their doors as well it's not. clear what the end goal is and there's not really a record of success here foreign aid to us aligned regimes in central america that have free market economies is certainly not a new concept in fact the u.s. state department has been showering the region with money for decades $750000000.00 was provided to central american countries between 20142017 now the stated goals of all that foreign aid was roughly the same as what biden is proposing and people remained poor desperate and they continued fleeing 2019 donald trump took the dramatic move of halting us aid so can we continue to just throw money at
7:08 am
a problem and expect it to eventually be solved by will soon be celebrating his 100th day in office and he's got a major crisis on his hands with no end in sight they look up and are to see new york. like i will stay with america because the 2nd day of race riots in the u.s. things that minnesota has seen this is your broken center flooded with national guard troops but a state of emergency will say to cleanse the rest follows the fatal shooting of a black man by a police officer. pulled them over who could or problem or opinion from the war or. my brother in law who lied because they were. known to the right.
7:09 am
rocks other objects thrown at the police department there were reports of shots fired in the area of the police department for. a little over watch all of the all of the above the moment we will have all of all about and i want to know more. will pay for it also took to the streets of new york and washington d.c. on monday the man justice who can tell you right they marched chanting his name and some had been is that read driving while black should not pay
7:10 am
a death sentence former officer so many guys i tell this instant to show there are serious problems that the police force. this is either bad training or this is a scared police officer and a story the problem i'm going to have for me personally as you're going to see a lot of supporters who are going to be jumping to the aid of this police officer saying that it's a high stress circumstance we don't know what she was thinking we'll you can you cue can mistake this was this was this was a bore if this was absurd to go to a pistol have it in your hands you had she obviously had tunnel vision on the suspects how you can mistaken mistakenly grab your pistol instead of your taser after you have had training that makes no sense to me whatsoever you use your hands usually at that taser has been proven over and over and over again to be not a complete tool and otality is going to wind up helping the scene out and it is
7:11 am
just done this is put more cops under the false a false security that a tool is going to replace words and physicality and this is a problem. now in other news that the soft in in moscow has crashed activities latest sanctions on iran saying the decision to impose them is worse than a crime. use of your to so use or if he you lacks coordination and if the left hand has no idea what the right hand is doing that's unfortunate but if the decision was reached consciously commit the only going to go sheesh ans in vienna to save the joint comprehensive plan of action then this is a mistake that is worse than the crime. donald trump who once did everything to room the landmark iran's nuclear deal or the joint comprehensive plan of action is gone america's back with its diplomacy as they're putting it and the negotiators are back in vienna to try and correct the mistakes of the past few years so it
7:12 am
looks like all the ingredients are there to fix the egremont but then all of a sudden comes extra trouble from the european union for the 1st time since 2013 the block decides to sanction a group of senior iranian officials for their role and a crackdown on the protests that happened 2 years ago in iran immediately fights back by cutting all talks with the european union on human rights and also by halting cooperation in dealing with such issues as terrorism drugs and refugees and all that is happening despite some initial positive signals from the capital of austria that is the state department coming back to the go sheeting table in the 1st place and also hinting at the possibility of easing some of the sanctions or the iranian president promising to restore full compliance if the sanctions are
7:13 am
lifted the iranian top diplomat jawad zarif during talks whether it's colleagues in iran blame the european union for dancing to washington's tune and also said that there is no way that the iran could be forced into compliance through means of pressure such as unilateral. restrictions. the americans have to realize that if they carry on with their policies the result will be the same they have to get rid of this mindset they have to wake up to the fact that sanctions don't work and that they won't force us into negotiations with supporting terrorist regimes if they change the way they think and live sanctions then we will again comply with their obligations under the nuclear deal so tensions are indeed running high and the process is in jeopardy but that's not the only thing that could worsen the situation because only a couple of days ago there was a very serious incident at one of iran's nuclear facilities there was a major explosion that led to
7:14 am
a power card iran has already called that an act of terrorism and blamed it on israel so like i said it seemed that the road to saving the rare nuclear deal was clear but something always seems to go wrong and this brings me to the question whether actually there are still more enemies of the joint comprehensive in the west rather than people who want to store it anyway the talks in vienna are resuming on wednesday. trying to reporting men now a group of activists in the us are entering their 3rd week of hunger strike over the saudi blockade of yemen the american based yemeni liberation movement is a bitin ministration to make good on its promise to end support to the saudi campaign where yemen is now in the grip of a full blown famine after a 6 year military onslaught by saudi arabia those operations are aimed at propping
7:15 am
up here saudi government again she. claims terrorists the war has directly or indirectly claimed almost a quarter of a 1000000 lives according to the u.n. the crisis to appears to be getting even worse with the saudi blockade preventing vital supplies from entering yemeni ports. well according to the united nations 2000000 children under the age of 5 will
7:16 am
suffer acute malnutrition in yemen this year if the blockade continues and that could result in 400000 deaths we heard from one of the leading activists involved in the hunger strike she thinks that a global response is needed to end the war. we're not talking about just the united states who is involved although they are a vital supporter and a key supporter in this and this role i mean you know you have to involve the united nations france spain and in so many other countries who are also involved in in supplying arms to the saudi coalition but absolutely you know there should be a huge uproar i mean we are literally day by day watching the worst humanitarian crisis in the world you know these are people that struggle to find water and and struggle to be able to afford food and just imagine that this is a constant daily life and why are we not hearing from these world leaders why are
7:17 am
we not hearing from from the from other nations who should be extremely outraged that this could be this could happen to any other country and we should all equally be as enraged and absolutely that the world needs to talk more about what's going on in yemen. several nights of subzero temperatures and fronts of decimate the country's great crop spending disaster for many of the countries winemakers and pharmacists who are having to get creative in a desperate bid to salvage what they can.
7:18 am
france has lost a significant amount of its harvest it's estimated that we have possibly lost around 30 percent nationwide we're talking about 12 to 15000000 hector liters at least that's roughly equivalent to what france exports almost every year but there are also people who have lost 90 or even 100 percent of certain types of vines some of my friends are living in a real nightmare others like me a modern lucky and weren't affected so badly when you look at the situation on the whole it's a really big problem at the same time there's also been other problems especially covert and the shut down of our main markets especially for winemakers small winemakers work a lot with restaurants the sector is closed restaurants are closed and it's not clear when they'll reopen you're watching i think still ahead this hour
7:19 am
a german based vaccine manufacturers says the u.s. export restrictions are putting vaccine production at risk but have a look at the details on this story for starters take just awful. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic development the only move really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very. time to sit down and talk. let me explain the truth of what's happening in america so you've got these tens of trillions of dollars worth of debt. 50 trillion dollars worth of debt which is just
7:20 am
another way to say u.s. government treasury bond. which are currently 30 years are roughly 2 percent now out of the coupon or the interest on those 30 year paid they're paid from taxes collected from taxpayers and the taxpayers pay those taxes to the federal government who in turn pay off the bom holders who own those bonds just 110th of one percent so while transfer mechanism so it's not inflation deflation feudalism. again now anybody can get on says from the white house that off to an online impostor did manage to listen to putting questions to joe biden spokesperson. splines what happened. have you ever wondered who gets to ask the questions at the
7:21 am
white house well for channels like r t or independent journalists it's practically impossible instantly you get accusations of being propaganda fake news and so on make news that's being spread by russia or to you which is a hulu supported. funded by the russian or the russian government fake means has dominated the true had lines fake news spread by russia fake news fake news kremlin spread misleading or otherwise fake news of course they explain it as holding up journalistic standards or something like that well ok so just how high are these standards well just for yourself an online game or manage to get in for questions to jen psaki biden's press secretary by just pretending to be a white house reporter a few fake twitter handles that's all it took the gamer who was real identity is still unknown created a profile as casey leggo montagu who pretended to be
7:22 am
a reporter for a non-existing news agency called white house news several white house officials even followed her on twitter montagu then asked credentialed reporters in the white house press room so a pass on her questions because she couldn't make it due to the regulations and stuff like that and they did no credentials no background check nothing and this laziness or incompetence or whatever you want to call it on the part of the white house press team is exactly what led montague to do all this in the 1st place i love journalism and i think the press corps is doing a pretty bad job at the moment so i decided i wouldn't show us some transparency and ask some questions me and some friends wanted the answer to and she's not the only one fed up with real journalists ever since biden circa office the pres briefings in the white house have turned into a game of softball a police compared to the way the media behaved during the trial. but ministration
7:23 am
back then everyone suddenly had a sense of journalistic duty to ask the hard questions and grill the administration over everything and anything this present like good you think candidates are going to question bill president like can you give us or closer to your doubting us can you give us a question don't be ridiculous or why should you not get to give you can use can you speak out or you are fake but you know if i mean one of the course of this president for me are you worried i should know that sort of president i think that's an ask one of the other folks that stood up for you that's enough put down the mike was president are you worried about indictments coming down in the supposed. but with biden's team it's a snooze fest screened questions scripted answers no accountability and a lot of circling back we will circle back with you if there's more to update you on that we'll have to take that question to you and circle back with you circle back on that one that's an excellent question i don't have any information in front of me both are excellent questions and the 1st one i should have information on but
7:24 am
i'll have to follow up with you on both of them i don't fool leave we have outlined that yet let me we can follow up with you if there's a specific timeline that we're putting up publicly at this point. so it's no surprise that even regular people are getting tired of this all and even going as far as getting their own questions into the white house because hey if you have the proper twitter handle that's apparently all it takes to become a white house approved journalist these days. in germany based pharmaceutical company kill vacs says it's having trouble producing its new vaccine because of u.s. export restrictions both the u.k. and the you have preordered almost half a 1000000000 kewl says but the firm warns that those orders are risk. global supply chains are disrupted be it chemical sequent meant filters or hoses u.s. manufacturers are obliged 1st to meet american demand and that means we are slipping down the list where the concern that has come after the biden ministration invoked
7:25 am
the so-called defense production act this was introduced during the cold war and it grants washington emergency powers to secure vital resources by prioritizing its own orders the moon has let us supply struggling to fill contracts outside the country professor of medicine dr rudolf l.n. to explain the possible ramifications. we know who sure used so many old school where we are trans materials that we need to research in for producing great scenes of course supplied except rose and many of them of course look you didn't see all night it states. they were going to. treat many important items in tea for him to eat there there will be a list which will sum this up low for the materials will cause chemicals and
7:26 am
many other. that are necessary to good use that work seems these would be a good talk however. i have to see you stare into color closely. many people here sir learn things you mean time also a lot just remember if you would be talking when you call we would be short on who think masks seen people masks their time go lucky leave while the last 2 people at least came from china and i think we just have to think it all to the alternative suppliers bt located of course in other parts of the world chose to consider trying not but also a shop so i think they will be able to look into it the trees to secure. these necessary well storing vaccination programs and that still about some of the japs
7:27 am
on offer have led to a rise in so-called vaccine tourism among your a pain spend some traveling as far afield as russia to be inoculated. micha do flow is a lawyer from leon and he has his own opinion about the vaccine situation holes will mean there are currently enough vaccines in france and not everyone can get vaccinated where they want to without waiting 1st of all i don't trust the vaccines offered to us whether it's the american vaccine or britain's astra zeneca they don't fill me with confidence so why i chose the russian sport like the jab which i think is much safer and more effective. the russian vaccine has not yet been approved by the european medicines agency so it's not in france and that's something to flo is not too happy about stores or good could be i regret that my country france is denying its citizens access to the sport make vaccine for reasons unrelated to health or medicine so if support nic doesn't fly to me i'll fly to get
7:28 am
it out of access while on a business trip to moscow to flow decided to get inoculated against corona virus he didn't seem nervous before getting his long awaited job. no i'm not concerned i might have been more worried if it was a different vaccine i won't name it but in france it's being heavily criticized now in this case i might have been more afraid however maître do flow things it's still a long way to travel for an injection but on them can force despite the fact that there is a vaccine shortage in france they have to decide who should get vaccinated 1st which also shows that we don't have enough doses even though there is a vaccine available it's their choice and i think that this is a criminal choice. despite his technology and experience france has not developed its own vaccine should never be i really regret that we're in this situation i think it's because france no longer has the scientific potential to develop such
7:29 am
things with a country of the scientists past a calm a and go on who really changed the health situation in the world for the better and today we're lagging behind france is the only member of the un security council that has not developed its own vaccine. do flu will get the 2nd sputnik 3 job in 3 weeks during his next trip then he can go home with one less thing to worry about. washington national that's how the news is looking so far the softening just coming up to hamas to moscow more from us at the top of the. show seems wrong. just don't call. me. yet to shape out just being educated and in detroit equal to
7:30 am
trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground. hi i'm max ties or this is the kaiser report let's see what's happening shall we let's talk to stacey max apparently discs order will as confucius warrant well this is an entertaining title i like it and it's from egon von grier it's he says that one bubbles burst we will discover how very.
