2:10 pm
clemson says he's amazed the stories only now gaining traction at the scope of these private spy companies was exposed to a decade ago. we did to point out the seriousness of this business to 10 years almost. ready december, 1st, 2011. we can publish internal documents exposing the incredible scope for these privatized spike companies. and they were offering to this particular gm's and targeting activities and political opponents. and i'm generally in 2011 when the duty i'm asylum was a long, seamless publication. another press conference at city university in that story got very little fraction that to me. and i was very surprised at the time because it was such a strong revelation, strong story,
2:11 pm
but it has taken 10 years now to maybe reach pollution. maybe people are now ready to upset the fact that the us by tools can be carrying. but it is the commercial surprise to to us we can live well with inflation in america hitting a 13 year high. people are rapidly feeling it in their pockets. and you poll, says 88 percent of americans are worried about the disproportionate increase in living costs. president biden bow claims that hasn't come as any surprise to him, and it's certainly having little impact on his spending plans. our experts believe in the data shows that most of the price increases we seen are, were expected, and expected to be temporary. nobody suggestion is unchecked inflation on the way. no, serious times. let's check that no one checked inflation claim. now if you have
2:12 pm
a car, it costs you twice as much to run it as it did last year. your prices have double your daily breakfast now comes with an 8 percent price. as the cost to milk bacon and fruit have gone up. on top of that, you've got consumer prices that have hit their highest amount since 2008. now, despite the presence assurances, america's working families already being a hard hit by the pandemic are starting to feel the pinch. the groceries are definitely. and also the runs are also going up and just household items, making serious progress to ensure that it works the way it's supposed to work for the good of the american people for construction material is out of this world. somebody's making some good money. and i think it's because joe biden, we could help families in small business, is whether the ups and downs or as the economy recovers. i don't buy anything when asked me what the, wherever me give it says nowadays i, i truly, truly don't look, we brought this economy back from the brink. now biden refuses to hear those voices
2:13 pm
. perhaps you listen to those within his own party labor market tightness, behavior of housing, markets, and asset prices all rising in a more concerning way than i worried a few months ago. this raises my degree of concern overheating scenario. there are huge uncertainties, but the focus of concern now should be on overheating. and if that's not enough to change the president mind on the economy, perhaps this comparison is the wake up call. he needs the u. s. as in the very bad position from a long term point of view, i don't see how these can and well, when we're running now, budget deficits, something like 15 percent of g d p. this is beginning to look a little bit like a latin american con. printing and spending money like there is no tomorrow, as pretty clearly got people concerned. biden gave the excuse to spend is necessary to tamp down inflation, which is ridiculous out of nothing in common. you can't stop the consequences of
2:14 pm
monetary printing by doing even more monetary printing, which is what it means to spend this level of money. and the fact is that biden, and all of his advisors and the political party that he represents, are big spenders, and they want to spend more money. they think that the u. s. government can go into infinite amounts of that. there's no limits whatsoever. they really believe this by mature is us. the problems are just temporary, but perhaps it's a bit like the pandemic and the economic aftermath. it's a bigger problem than was 1st thought. but it seems to be a problem that biden's apparently incapable of recognizing. caleb mob been r t new york or so it had few here on the program on t. william shakespeare is being dumped by one english universities literature department over his supposedly to come lonia liz and bar on that off to the break. the
2:15 pm
ah, is your media a reflection of reality? in a world transformed what will make you feel safe relation or community? ah, you're going the right way or are you being that somewhere? which direction? what is truth? what is in the world corrupted. you need to defend the join us in the depths. will remain in the shallows, use. join me every 1st day. alex simon show. and i'll be speaking to guess from the world, the politics sport. business. i'm show business. i'll see you then.
2:16 pm
me the the, me ah, it is good to have with us for the program tonight. well, there is a fury across from the switch on wednesday introduced vaccine passports for certain public places of protest are still happening nationwide. and powers to host the largest rally. people are also unhappy about mandatory inoculations for jobs and sectors from health to hospitality. let's cross live now to the french capital, or sean at 215 are joining us here in the program. charlotte, you may have been talking for the past few days now. i protest in demonstrations and 130 french towns and cities, and yet people are still really angry. thoughts,
2:17 pm
right. how i would describe the moods of many of the people that i've spoken to in paris. as you can see behind me, this is the end of the process to the deputies in cross the sales of a new hello floor. and it is one of many protests that been taking place in the country today. but just want to talk a little bit about the health cops, which you mentioned that anger is about in the health path. it's currently being debated when we expect to become new by the end of the week is mandatory inoculation for health work as people who work in of a particular cap degrees of job. and also this idea of how fast, which means starting from today already in some places you can go in and you can prove your why the fully vaccinated, like a curve is 19 or you have a negative certificate that includes doffing. so when say, museums,
2:18 pm
swimming pools, gym, navy, and this is an issue, people say not happy about it means that there are more than 50 individuals in those places. you can't go in and actually witness somebody being turned away from swimming pool earlier today he was 9. he said, i've got that gets if certificate, but i don't have it with me. and they said, sorry, you can't come in. these are the new rules and the rule of guns about them being debated will be extended to the cafe direct or the people who take long distance travel on buses and trains, all of which will mean the people in front no trucks and they can continuously know prove that the curve is negative. we'll see massive restrictions on what they're able to do and chatting to the people here today. they say that this is a deliberate slave. is it help take your shit really belong if we're no longer free to cheat or med since we take,
2:19 pm
we have every right to ask what kind of regime this is. and it looks like this is a regime that's become authoritarian and dominated by big pharma over the authorities, obligating peoples without consent or explanation. yeah, that's tyranny. clearly cool. pull over here to the found freedoms. every one has the right to decide for himself. get vaccine if you want, don't. if you don't, every person is free to decide. we've also been hearing from health work as also from the unions representing firefighters across the country, saying that they again again, this idea of a mandatory vaccination within my president mac on just a few weeks ago. and from mid september, anybody in certain categories, including those who are nurses or working in residential care homes, will have to show that they are fully vaccinated. so that means 2 weeks off to having that 2nd job. if it's a to job vaccine or a month after the one job vaccine,
2:20 pm
if they don't show that they won't be able to work. and there's also concern that removed that they be paid either. so there is real consternation over some of the issues here. but just to give you a sense of what the situation is with coven 19 problem. we heard from the health minister in the last few hours that they were 21000 new positive cases identified in the law say there were 18000 the day before that. and we are seeing an increasing crew cases here in front. once again, though not as yet an increase in hospital admissions, and we've heard from the government that we know what's coming into both ways. we all and that is why they believe the vaccination is so important. but many of those are spoken to here today. say they want to describe themselves as anti vaccine in general. they just keep this faxing back to them right now. there is no scientific consensus. on the one hand, we are told this is
2:21 pm
a solution on the other that there are lots of secondary complications and no decline in cases. the benefits in the benefits are different for every age group. for example, young people might not be that badly affected by the virus. so the vaccine is not necessarily for them. i would be ready for reducing liberties. if i could understand the cause, reason, but i really don't trust the reason they are setting up so there's this protest in parts, but also protests across the country. in fact, for your own, one of the sun is shown great, which is in the east. the from nearly on the projects is actually stormed the town hall managed to take down the poor trade of president macro. and we know the vaccine center has been attacked, including one that was done just a few days ago, dots not being treated as an all in attack. and we also know that several deputies
2:22 pm
have been threatened with their life as a result of supporting health bill. and there's also being a lot of, i'm go over one posted, emerged an investigation now into that, which showed president mccord akin to add or left. on top of that there was hunger over the fact that yellow stones have been used in the protest. you may know that yellow stalls are used to identify jews in north, in germany. and this idea the unseen vaccination group trying to make themselves akin to holocaust survivors has really, really good. so many people from so many quoted mean one of course we know that the deputies are trying to paint at the moment this. no, it seems that it's certain that it's going to pass by friday of this week. and not because the government believe that this is the only way forward, including the need for mandatory vaccinations, and this is our combination of guy rocketing particularly amongst younger
2:23 pm
individuals. the health minutes. the thing that 9 out of 10 new cove it infections is in somebody who is not box and they did that twice. they say they are pushing through. now as a result of that, we know that there's also be a huge increase in searching for a faith certificate. and there is a problem with that problem. we have seen some of the rings being investigated by police with individuals being apprehended. so fall arrested. some people paying around $300.00 euros to pretend that they've been fully vaccinated against 19. and that is a real concern. and we understand that an amendment in not no, that's going to deal with this. so the idea is that if you take a fake certificate or you or somebody who provides one, you could see yourself with a fine of 75. and i was in jurors and a 5 year jail to this is being treated as
2:24 pm
a very serious. while there are still many citizens who are concerned that they push towards what they call a health dictatorship, is depriving them of the liberty to choose whether or not they want to be vaccinated. no, i live in paris. thank you. well, there's been a new victim of council culture, the one and only william shakespeare are now in creative writing course in the u. k . is to be be colonized which includes dropping the work to be english. play right at the move was immediately ridiculed with many branding it as an anti academic. now it comes off to some students at the university of east anglia complain the course was dominated by privileged white male experience. so now a new module will focus on a, quote, the emotions of modern english from a multi lingual global i should say medieval society and it's colonial expansion. see more than twice that's
2:25 pm
a mouthful. essentially means the bars been booted. an author is born in africa, asia and south america were now top the reading list. well, we did ask people for their thoughts today, everybody must bring their own set. thanks to chase. this is imposing one to speak with you on it and basically fanning it. it's censorship because if you think some of the attitudes that correspond to your own absolutely short term isn't completely misguided obviously that at each other. because my find it offensive. well, that needs to be addressed to, you know, so i've only told that it would be a big mistake. the fact is that the place written when they were in the time that they were. and i think that people, i think people are big enough to better understand what kind of time and why it wouldn't be. it wouldn't right like that today. but then i think for the dumbing
2:26 pm
down, but nobody, nobody able to process the information themselves. i don't think that's progress. the university has defended the move saying the changes make the course more diverse and inclusive adding the students when i study literature from all around the world. busy including publications, from its own award winning graduates. a talk radio host, john gone. he's not having it sees anglia, similar talk, reflected in the world, did that creative writing course. so the actually attaching their own it's just seems to me to be deaf. of course, let's make sure the syllabus has writers from other ethnic backgrounds. let's make sure we show it's in its whole clarity. but the idea is the you stop by counseling . shakespeare no, or that you counsel white male writers. how does that help any one? you can't just cancel it and pretend shakespeare didn't exist. i mean,
2:27 pm
they would never do this in some way, like prompts with molly. this is council culture out. it's was, is woke agenda and the students need to basically get their life. you can learn from the classics, wolf's and all. no one asked necessarily by studying the merchant of venice. for example, think that everything in there is acceptable, cuz you don't, you look at it in the whole and that's what needs to happen. we want our kids to get education. not indoctrination, don't we? all right, honey. our attention to russia now we're more than one and a half 1000000 hectares of forests have been consumed by raging wildfires and rushes. ne, cootie, a region. some 50 towns and villages have all been blanketed with choking smoke, emergency services, volunteers, and locals are all battling to bring the flames under control. we understand around
2:28 pm
2000 people and 300 vehicles of all being deployed. arthur correspondent, and what i'd guess via has been looking at a scale of this tragedy. wild fobs then just one russian region have consumed an area that is larger than jamaica for more than that group. and full cost aren't good. it's hot, it's dry. and it's burning, ah, [000:00:00;00] the to put it far out, you have to, you have to get to it, which is a problem. given the vastness of rushes force firefighters, are literally parachuting into the fall zone to join the efforts. the government is
2:29 pm
sending more and more resources and manpower and vehicles and fire fighting across to combat the inferno. but local activists said, still not enough that reaching out internationally for help. they've even us leonardo dicaprio for assistance. okay. i've heard you. i and my management will look into it, then we would talk with your therapy in charge to see how we can be of help. siberia is dying now. also be area. hopefully a help. can you post on your official page about 5 in siberia, please. ok, i'll fix a meeting with my management. thank you very much. leo. siberia loves you. the activists to publish the exchange later. the need has it, but so far as these will ready have the response. if we receive an official offer of help, then of course we would be happy if he came over and provided some assistance. but to be honest,
2:30 pm
i find it hard to imagine what he can do to extinguish the awkward fires. sit in hollywood. publicity is always good. the more noise that people raise, the more attention that these fires will get. this is a perfect for storm historic heat level, lack of rain, dry forests, all came together in these fires that have burned down thousands of square kilometers of ancient woodland. and killed countless wild life. this is a taste of what's to come as the climate changes. because the overwhelming prognosis is that these 5 will rage worse and worse every saba, all over the world. yeah, more on those are wildfires all across parts of russia and r t dot com right now. some amazing video and photos waiting for you there. for the meantime. more of your wednesday worldwide news headlines returning at the top of the hour
