2:03 pm
think. this is really understood. we're not going to. think of my god i don't get me. i. i. i. it looks like it's happening again the killing of dante wright was shot by a police officer has sparked a new wave of protests anger is boiling over. stores are being looted but this time
2:04 pm
some store owners are saying they're not ready to just be victims their arms to the teeth again peaceful protesting expressing yourself we fully support that. but the ravaging our businesses the looting of our stores. the destruction to our pharmacies we cannot tolerate that just like last summer calls to defund the police or getting support from politicians an accidental discharge that kills someone has another name manslaughter we don't need police with lethal weapons carrying out routine traffic stops re allocate police funding to traffic forces to remove even the possibility of state sanctioned manslaughter it wasn't an accident policing in our country is inherently and intentionally racist done to right was met with aggression and violence i'm done with those who condone government funded murder. no more policing incarceration and military zation it can't be reformed the police
2:05 pm
are once again the target of concentrated rage from black lives matter and its allies people are misperceiving this as an organic uprising against a legitimate anger against the police when what it is is i think organisations such as b.l.m. and. exploiting the situations that arise slapping their narrative on it and then attacking the police for it they don't want to try to make some concessions and say ok we can use some reform or we're going basically what it is is if people want the police to get you know better training and to you know what you know and that that sort of thing that makes sense to me but to just come up with a false narrative that's not backed by any evidence at all and then to say oh they need to reform that just goes a step too far if they can show the evidence that we need to reform not anecdotal situations that they were manipulating into something the police did wrong then you
2:06 pm
know we're up for it but to try to just come with these false narrative and try to exploit them to you know is a choir's i federalize the local police departments or to you know put us at a disadvantage in facing criminals you know we're just not going to go for that the reputation of law enforcement is once again in the spotlight with the unrest now growing many wonder how much of the community will get destroyed in the coming outrage and analysts wave of protests and looting sparked by the very same people expected to defend u.s. citizens caleb r.t. new york. well ahead of another day of protests businesses have been hastily boarded up in minneapolis previous night saw numerous shopping malls looted damaged radio show host when to pre he told the program the scenes are going to get worse. if authorities and communities fail to find common ground. i would say
2:07 pm
honestly from a logic own commonsense point of view i would say that the leaders of the communities should get together with the leaders of the state and local government and sit down in trial in discuss solutions there's a lack of trust with within the police community about what's going on within the minority community in then there's a lack of trust within the minority community about what the police are doing because of what they see projected on our media every day what's happening right now is not going to stop it's going to get worse because the leadership around many places is weak this is something that the democrats have said that they can handle and i don't think they can handle it because. they have allowed things to go on like this in minnesota before in portland. in atlanta they were allowed this to happen claiming we're iranis or for some emirate.
2:08 pm
it's another headline stories today muslims in france are accusing the government of trying to control every aspect of their lives from what they wear to how they school their children what's the allegation it's caused by a bill recently adopted in the 1st reading in the senate the stated aim of the draft law is to bolster republican principles on to combat so when separatist tendencies are to charlotte it can pick up the story for us. ford says plans to defeat separatism have already caused alarm bells to ring particularly amongst the muslim community they've said that the north seeks to divide and could provoke hatred of muslims now the country senators voted to make an already controversial bill well explosive in a bid to fight against extremism senators adopted measures including
2:09 pm
a ban on parents wearing visible religious symbols if their company children old school trips essentially a ban on he jabs turbans or skull caps the book he would be banned public swimming pools prayers would be banned on university premises so too would any display of a foreign flag at a wedding are listed up was the reaction is what's next and we can no longer speak of a functioning democracy in france given all these measure as specifically targeting a minority but more generally once these laws are passed they apply to everyone so yes there is a state of excitement for the left and the human rights and the centrist. government that you have with him only we must hold all that in all of the good stuff held against human rights and civil liberties in france who look at the situation and say france is not what was going by the british this is definitely
2:10 pm
a political. war against the text also mentions a ban on young girls wearing a hijab in public places that sparked a flurry of anger on social media sparking the hash tag hands off my job france will host the generation of quality forum later this year but at the same time it's legislators continue to entrench the rights of muslim women stop treating women as a 2nd ignorant class women can dress the way they want. the hitch a ban is not on the offensive to muslim women it's offensive to all women what is the difference between those who impose. as the city government and women like the ground's have gotten and the people who want to impose that up with women what they can wear i cannot wear i see also to know the difference so in the case of muslim women there are seen either as victims or that the white men should and if she says
2:11 pm
but go this is my body and i should decide when i want to wear and what not to wear she is treated as a prince and as a nun i of the most obscurities or the most for the moment that is forces and there was also a last minute amendment that was our did by the interior minister i requested by president macro that will allow authorities to stop foreign organizations from setting up private schools in france what's happening today is a we see everything they look at the game any type of freedom but if it's muslim we should then change the rules of the games in order for muslims to be the cause of losers in order for them to not profit off nor did their duty equality and brotherhood the proposed nor has also been condemned by human rights groups such as amnesty international this proposed law would be a serious attack on rights and freedoms in france he would allow public authorities
2:12 pm
to fund only organizations which sign a contract of republican commitment a vaguely defined concept which is wide open to abuse and threatens the very freedoms of expression and association the french authorities claim to stand for the bill isn't yet certain to pass in its current form there are still discussions to be had which could see that some of these controversial amendments would be dropped in the future but it comes at a time when muslims say that they already feel stigmatized and there is real concern that the secular. bush could be weaponized by extremist groups. it is the news network whose slogan makes the ball claimed it's the most trusted media but after a c.n.n. director was caught out in a sting operation questions have been raised there really the case one quarter picks up the story. the most trusted name in news it's a title c.n.n. has long prided itself on maybe you buy it maybe you don't but what would you think
2:13 pm
if a network admin did to deliberately spreading propaganda well apparently they did i do you. believe that it was serious. but again you are reading stories that we didn't know anything about. that's b.s. i think that he is the worst president we have ever seen but what president trump just said was undemocratic and false the president seems to think that dominating black people dominating peaceful protesters is law and order it's not he calls them thugs who's the thug here this guy is should not be president cnn's charlie chester's spilled the beans over a tender date he was enticed into by an undercover project veritas journalist and he claimed the channel long had a pre-determined agenda to get trump out of office one that flows from the top down
2:14 pm
from none other than c.n.n. president jeff zucker himself naturally trying to make joe biden out to be a spring chicken was the other side of the anti trump propaganda coing yeah i mean like we didn't like what was. i don't know he's shaking or whatever and he brought in like so many medical people so like all tell a story like this is all speculation you know you're shocked to hear john. mccain. you know buy. him a new aviator she. hated me as a. young. guy sounds a lot like election meddling something c.n.n. has pointed the finger at russia for time and time again blaming on unverifiable claims from u.s. intelligence and its reputation as evidence the. in last year's elections the network claimed that moscow was trying to hurt joe biden's chances by spreading conspiracy theories about the now u.s.
2:15 pm
president i'm talking about russia tacking more election russia once again interfered in the race for the white house russia is indeed interfering in the 2020 election with that kind of a double standard it should come as no surprise that people's trust for c.n.n. is on the decline but we don't think that this is all the personal effects just. makes this worse when you're caught red handed hiding the way you do business from your viewers that's one thing but accusing someone else for breaking the very rules you yourself were caught breaking well that's another it's a rinky dink 2 bit organization what do you want it c.n.n. that scare defends immunised from any responsibility because nobody takes them seriously and as far as project very close and james o'keefe god bless him but how many exposé these must be produced before something's done things done
2:16 pm
nothing jeff zucker still there everybody still there but let me explain something their ratings are plummeting who wants to watch c.n.n. if there's no trunk what do you do talk about what a great job biden is knowing what a great job camelot harris story i don't think so now me we can't believe what we're seeing and our country is in complete collapse with our borders being destroyed and being invaded daily with crime around with a sense of believe a bull distrust with with vaccine an efficacy vaccine malpractise with this anyway and years nothing for them to build up what are they going to do hey joe biden is doing a great job nobody thinks that where is by if you know we're. so. james o'keefe and project very may get their wish by virtue of the implosion that i
2:17 pm
believe c.n.n. is involved in as we speak or we have contacted c.n.n. for comment on the story and we'll bring you any response. to it on the program to italian version. members. who have acquired. great job amid wider shortages in the block or nuts.
2:18 pm
it. seems wrong. to me. to shape out. educate and engage. trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart. to look for common ground. the biden administration has announced plans to befall the u.s. military deployment in germany with hundreds more troops washington claims the move
2:19 pm
will boost deterrence and defense in europe but they i'm happy to announce that we will be be increasing the u.s. force presence in germany. in keeping with my pledge to consult with allies and partners today i briefed the minister on our intention to permanently stationed approximately 500 additional u.s. personnel in the weeds but mariya as early as this fall. it is of course wonderful news that not only has the withdrawal of american troops from germany been abandoned as president biden announced in his speech at the munich security conference but that on the contrary these troops here in germany will be reinforced that is a very strong sign of solidarity. was the german defense minister just mentioned the decision marks a break from donald trump's plans to scale back the number of u.s.
2:20 pm
troops stationed in germany by quite a bit as well 12000 troops and comes amid escalating tension in eastern ukraine with washington pledging to buck the ukrainian government political analyst be john tells us only from germany told us that germans themselves don't get a say in this the plan. i think this is just another stack in the encirclement of the russian federation by u.s. troops and they want to use germany as a base to prepare for another war against russia and most important thing yes that the german government was not honest when miss austin came to germany he himself said he briefed the german government that he was going to increase the troop contingency in germany he did ask them do you want troops now we just told them we're going to entry increase troops well officially where a sovereign nation but when will this foreign occupation process finally go home we
2:21 pm
over on lummi we want the american troops out of germany and want germany to be a nuclear free country. pharma giant pfizer. hike the price for a future orders of its coded $19.00 vaccine about this according to bulgaria as prime minister just going through the figures that we believe it may be the cost could be more than 60 percent higher to run $23.00 u.s. dollars per dose the european union is now seeking a new vaccine supply contract with pfizer from next year so a lot of profits at stake here and march company heads did indicate a possible price hike post demick. well let's get the thoughts on this with dr john breaux ski. meant physician always good to have you on the program john.
2:22 pm
just the optics are all of this drug essentially developed to respond to a global crisis not being sold for a hefty your profit what's your thoughts on just the headline of this. well it's really bad optics i will certainly give you that but well the other side is is that it did take billions of dollars whether it's government or private industry to come up with this vaccine product so rapidly and under a sense a year which is never been done before so obviously governments or patients will need to pay for that again it's bad optics with respect to you know in a midst of a pandemic where you're charging me more but again this is the cost of business and but perhaps there are other companies that might want to come out there to say you know what this is capitalism we can come up with a similar product that's maybe less expensive and then it might drive down the price is it because they know that countries in this case consonants.
2:23 pm
the block within the european continent are really stuck at the moment astra zeneca is being stoled to not just there but across the world for certain age groups on now they're ready to take advantage of that pfizer i mean. well perhaps that is right you know so obviously there's are supply and demand there's you know the state the demand is the same the supply is less and costs would go up but maybe this gives us a chance to take a pause with respect to really what we're doing with the vaccination product you know do you know look at the risk factors does everyone need a vaccine does everyone need this i'm not really sure since the survivability is 99.999 percent so again you know it's an opportunity for the government ministries of health to kind of look at this do we really want to do we need to spend this money for citizenry to be healthy. just in terms of what pfizer have said let's be fair because they previously indicated that the price hike would be possible post
2:24 pm
pandemic when it's not a global challenge anymore at least we hope it won't be a global challenge at that stage is it is done except all will be more easily digestible do you think without in mind when this does go further than just bulgaria's president out and other world leaders are taking this into account. well i think you have an excellent point there i think you know right now in the midst of a crisis raising our products certainly looks very cold and heartless i will certainly give you that but again on the other side i still believe that you know the products have to be made there's always a profit margin always that's why there's a reason to bake it because we're going to make money now how much money is a what is a willing what is a reasonable profit that is for someone else to determine the marketplace but as i said perhaps you know some other company maybe a sputnik 5 vaccine would get involved to say we could do it for cheaper less and that would drive the cost down have you been keeping an eye on the story just the sputnik v. itself john. it's been on the market for quite
2:25 pm
a long time now it's been picked up by countries you know within europe but not the e.u. block itself found it seems to be pushed back further and further what do you make of all of that when people obviously are waiting for a job just to get their lives back to normal but still it just seems that be you know politics more than perhaps you know health at stake here. exactly let the science you know prove the way forward the obvious sputnik 5 vaccine is i think a little bit less expensive and certainly the the way to control it in terms of vaccine in terms of the you know the pfizer and the journal the j.j. were had very very cold settings which the 3rd wolves really could not afford and that's why the sputnik 5 be vaccine did quite well because of those elements that they really were part of the 1st world to have something as such a very cold temperatures so you could actually provide this level care for your
2:26 pm
citizens so here's an opportunity for russia to say look at our data and then have other countries inside the e.u. outside the e.u. what's going to be best for our citizens you know i do know it's a multifaceted issue out there but sometimes there are easy he solutions are quick to some problems and thank you very much as always pain management physician dr john dombrowski. it's a watch. the mercy of to tell intolerance have chosen an unusual way to tackle a shortage of covert they have written to the neighboring republic of sunbury no asking it to provide their residence with russia's sputnik the job now the microstate which is not an even member and doesn't need the european medical agency's approval has been using the job since late february san marino officials hope to reach herd immunity by the end of may with the vaccine the murders of. told us they can't afford to wait for you approval our need to do what's best for their people. you know somebody or son leo and son marino brother
2:27 pm
towns that have been friends for more than a 1000 years we wrote this letter because many italian citizens work in the republic of san marino and we requested to use the sputnik vaccine to protect our citizens who work in san marino it is obvious that our citizens in fact do live together and for many hours a day it was natural for me to ask my friends in san marino to use the sputnik vaccine which had been available for many weeks in san marino and the results were excellent i'm sure some reno politicians are considering the possibility of quickly accepting arrow request especially considering the news that the johnson and johnson vaccine rollout is now blocked by the united states and 200000 doses arriving in italy are held up at customs. in this difficult here we have realized that the only response to the pandemic worldwide is a vaccine ordinary citizens do not care where italy gets the vaccines from they
2:28 pm
interested in the fact that there is a solution from a practical point of view in terms of saving human lives thus the sooner we have vaccinate all our citizens the sooner we can get back on track including from an economic point of view europe has decided to develop a common strategy and that is why we're lagging behind where very. late and that is why it is my duty as mayor to give concrete on says on solutions to the citizens i usually say that i'm a rural mayor who needs short answers to questions of all the world economy i have many appointments after the news spread that san marino was able to give the vaccine even to 16 year olds my phone started ringing with calls also being me to do something for my citizens and this is what i'm doing. while this horror stories are shipping off for i will keep the updates coming at the top of the art do hope you'll join me think this is already international or great programs right
2:29 pm
ahead. the world is driven by shaped. thinks. we fear to ask.
2:30 pm
i'm actually trying to do what you can of a lockdown edition of going on the ground after repeated attacks by israel and by britain the united states and the european union's nations against middle east targets from the suburbs of damascus to the persian gulf to the iranian province of it as economic and military violence rages during a global pandemic from latin america to africa to northern ireland to ukraine let's go straight to rome to speak to the former m i 6 agent and the founder and director of conflicts for him to crook thanks so much for coming on you wouldn't think it's a here in britain where obviously people are grieving over the juke of edinburgh but just take us through some of the latest events i mean there's an attack on the nuclear plant an attack on the iranian side of his vessel in the red sea and yet lloyd austin bidens pentagon boss he's been in israel declaring. his.
