8:02 pm
this barrier has been built to hide one of the cities, ugliest problems. crack addiction for months, drug use is turned hawk. it will in the 19th decent of paris and the surrounding streets into a living nightmare for locals. now they have be moved to around this location. meaning the problem haven't been tackled. it's just bought a new set of glucose to deal with what it really feels like a zombie apocalypse movie. since last week we have faced assault after assault theft after 1st, my neighbor is still in hospital at the trying to catch a drug addict who robbed him. he was beaten up. noel says this neighborhood has long suffered problems, but this addition of more than a 100 drug addicts on the doorstep only creates greater insecurity. that's been done. yeah, we are almost a breaking point. there's a feeling of nervousness,
8:03 pm
violence. we think about it everyday or even up to all myself with protective equipment such a tig, gus, a taser or a but why? because just last weekend, there were 5 fights that happened on friday, then saturday and sunday they just didn't stop. we have drug addicts who come here every day because they need crack. this war was hastily built with the authority saying that it was necessary to protect glucose from the drug uses. but it happened to walking around in that neighborhood. we have seen everything from spilling over into commercial areas and drug deals, taking place openly in the metro is mounting here, locals, all protesting against the fact that they have essentially been on the doorstep just left. i'm angry because these people are being treated like animals. we countries, people like that, we can just move them to please further away from fairies. well known color,
8:04 pm
why are we angry today? because of everything that's happened, we always been attacked. it's getting worse and worse, women are being assaulted, threatened. we must find a solution to the problem and we find that scandalous. there you go. we have to do something. so did you want to, instead of relocating people to good neighborhood where moving them to areas that already have difficulties? they just shifted the problem a few blocks away, instead of building the infrastructure to accommodate the people. it's an acceptable collect. we are angry because instead of taking care of the deprived migrant population, we put them to one side like animals. it's a long western tradition to segregate new comment, to put problems, to one side instead of solving them. it's nothing new to fascist. were very good at it. said the medical supervision have been approved by the government, but every time a location that you suggested that reasonable physician from people who are buying
8:05 pm
some lightening the plan is putting rock and they know the menu schools and endangering children. cool is some things that are dresses like a logical and also the psychiatric needs. there are about a 130 and a 150 men and some women living in a kind of shanty town on the outskirts of paris in totally unsanitary conditions. they need social and health care, not this type of security response. they had already been about. this is the major player insecurity. what's really good success really? i think one of the house, okay. solid. even sometimes the new canadian army report has revealed the military bosses saw the pandemic as a quote unique opportunity to test propaganda on the population plans weren't
8:06 pm
implemented. but disturbingly army chief thought they didn't need approval from higher authorities. several officials at military headquarters warned if it's such policies are not usually deployed against citizens domestically and have the potential to be abused by targeting government critics. the campaign called for shaping and exploiting information. c, j o c claim. the information operation scheme with needed the head of civil disobedience by canadians during the karone of ours pandemic, and to bolster government messages about the pandemic. this project which attempted to shape and exploit information was launched in april of 2020 without the request or even permission of cabinet. and even though then, chief of the defense staff, general john vance, gave verbal orders to shut down the initiative that very same month report show that these influence activities as the military likes to call them, continued for 6 more months until events finally submitted
8:07 pm
a written edict in november and now you might be wondering how such authoritarian and frankly even mackey value and projects could be allowed to take place in a supposedly liberal country like canada, is specially since canadian law states that the military is specifically forbidden from using psychological operations or a cy, ups within canada, unless given explicit permission from the federal government? well, it turns out that the answer there is essentially creative semantics. you see, according to the department of national defense, cy ops are only used abroad and they are, of course, completely and totally different from what it is. instead choosing to refer to as information, operation, campaigns. sure. and as terrible as all this sounds. the sad truth is that this isn't even the 1st time that the canadian military has set its sites upon fellow law abiding canadians. another initiative, this one spearheaded by intelligence officers focused on gathering data from the
8:08 pm
social media profiles of canadians, is included collecting data on b, l. m. leaders and collecting posts that discussed public opinion of ontario premier doug ford. all of this is specially when combined with the increasingly strict code protocols put in place by the federal and provincial gover. mintz paint's a grim picture for canada's future. it seems increasingly like canadians are finding themselves in a position where their own government and yes, even their own military views them as the enemy and a group to be controlled. us senators have grilled facebook's head of safety over the effect of the company's services have on young people's mental health has come to after leaked internal research suggested it's photo sharing platform. instagram harms, children's well being. as archie's kill him up and comments facebook once again in the hot seat of the us senate this time because a report showing that
8:09 pm
a facebook apparently worked to conceal information about the harmful effects on the mental well being of teenagers caused by instagram. it has weaponized childhood vulnerability against children themselves is chosen growth over children's mental l, and well being, greed over preventing the suffering of children. this seems to be a recurring theme with this company. do everything and anything to mold the world into your own image. for your own profit, without any regard for any harm that is going to be done because your focus is on your pocket book. this book is just like big tobacco pushing a product that they know is harmful to the health of young people, pushing it to them early. also, facebook can make money. i g stands for instagram,
8:10 pm
but it also stands by insta, greed. facebook had to postpone the rolling out of their new app, directed a children under the age of $1313.00 and younger because of a wide spread outrage and the barrage of criticism that facebook was facing after the wall street journal revealed that facebook was well aware of the harmful effects caused by instagram. we make body image issues worse for one in 3 teen girls, teens blame instagram for increases in rate of inside ski and depression. according to what is being reported among teenagers who are suicidal and contemplating killing themselves. 13 percent in britain and 6 percent in the united states actually listed instagram as having been a factor in their desire to commit suicide. now the tech giant has, you know,
8:11 pm
a basically accused of these reports of, quote, cherry picking facts on the eve of today's hearing. they did release 2 of their own internal reports, but many are looking on with disappointment because this is certainly not the 1st time that facebook has been caught suppressing data and channeling information in their own way. the research that we've seen is that using social apps to connect with other people can have positive mental health benefits. many people across the political spectrum in the united states, democrats, republicans, it seems like a consensus in the united states that there should be some better regulation of big tack and social media on that. the harmful effects of social media should be controlled. but despite there being such widespread feeling and they're being ongoing hearings on capital hill, there doesn't seem to be a real legislative agenda being rolled out there don't seem to be real legislation being put into the work to limit the power of big tack and the social media
8:12 pm
monopolies despite some colorful hearings, like we just heard a bit of a power struggle between congress and facebook and even these major power players reading congress them so much money, they're able to move robin money behind the scenes rather than being traced back to facebook springs and there are things you really think that the, the senate congress is going to intervene and put in place and the back of mental empowerment of major corporations through government corporate policy in the 1st place, intellectual property, regulations, taxes are all these things that make it difficult to compete, rand french, these major corporate monopolies and bring it back to the parent commission will help list when they're up against base because they're up against the government. that's backing them up. at the same time,

in mysterious blaze has broken out and stood guard in south west germany, in which 10 buses park at a depot caught fire. emergency helicopters more than 30 fire fighting vehicles, and 150 personell were deployed to the scene. there were also explosions, as well as tires blow up, as they burned. it's still not known what caused the fire, but the situation is now under control and there have been no reports of any injuries. on r t on the way europe is, have been feeling the heat as it struggled to stick to its green goals as nations rely on fossil fuel to keep home warm this winter. and for years to come, we'll talk to you through that. after short breaks there with the news, frances mccomb recently said, quote, the europeans must stop being when we are under pressure from powers which at times
8:14 pm
harden their stands. we need to react and show we have the power and capacity to defend ourselves vold words. but does europe have the political will to actually defend itself? ah, if you are expecting be of non governmental be in the image or i'm sorry, this is a wrong expert vision. you will have to t nissan. you want me to go to the peculiarities you can't impose the democratic system on sunday he was and the political order, ah the ah
8:15 pm
ah welcome back. this is our to international natural gas prices have hit a new high in europe. now, reaching $1150.00 per 1000 cubic meters, prices have been skyrocketing since the beginning of september. and it's not only gas which europe desperately needs. the continent has also been struggling to reduce its consumption of coal in line with policies aimed at limiting greenhouse gases. but as our chief to meet republic comments, those green energy ambitions might have to take a step back for just a bit. environmentalism is all the rage right now, but mother nature doesn't always play ball. winter comes whether there's wind enough or not to power the turbines and where it's freezing cold. no one actually cares if gas and coal are green. energy prices are skyrocketing in europe and environmental initiatives seem to only be making things worse. the fact that wind
8:16 pm
farms are useless when there's no wind is a big problem for the likes of the u. k. for example, where they're supposed to produce around 20 percent of the country's energy supply . so it's back to dirtier forms of power. less than that we need to learn that fossil fuels are still needed in the energy mix in order to back up renewable energy. because if we continue to remove all the bases capacity that is coming from sources like the gas called a nuclear, without having something that is like come backups the intermittency of wind and solar. then we will be having tight situations of the one that we're experiencing at the moment. take the current unreliability of wind and solar, add the increased demand and low supply of coal and natural gas throughout the continent, plus all the carbon permit fees for coal producers. and you've got a perfect recipe for energy crisis, but somehow no one saw it coming. not
8:17 pm
a good start for what the likes of ursula underlines they will be defining era for environmentalism. it's a pleasure to welcome you to this conference on the make break decades for climate action. the next 10 vs might be a turning point. first and foremost for global c o 2 emissions. good luck with that 3 months after she said that and you lawmakers are already extending subsidies for fossil fuel gas until 2027. all the while the u energy commission insists that it had nothing to do with the crisis. the current increase in energy prices has little to do with our climate policies, and much ought to do without dependence on volatile foreign fossil fuels. right. and the price of coal permits which have more than doubled over the past 2 years. probably also had nothing to do with the current situation, but higher coal prices and a shortage of supply isn't justifacts in europe right now. china is also having a hard time with the whole environmentally friendly approach to energy. large
8:18 pm
sectors of the countries industry have been crippled by energy shortages and regions are being forced to ration power with chinese government calling for an increase in coal imports. and we're not even into winter yet. going green is trendy and it sounds nice, but in reality we're a long way off before it's actually practical until then it seems non green energy sources are here to stay, trying to limit them without thinking of the consequences is simply a recipe for disaster. at the moment we have to state that physically, it's impossible to get rid of all the fossil fuel sources for energy production. if we did not get now nuclear power production and a little later on energy production from coal, we could maybe use less natural gas. but natural
8:19 pm
gas seems to be the major back bone. so usually for promot, providing a stable energy production at with natural gas. you can quickly lift up energy production level when the wind stops blowing when it start. whitehouse has admitted its teaming up with the you to stop china from getting access to high tech know how the u. s. commerce chief made the revelation at a top trans atlantic tech trade summit. we have to work with our european allies to deny china the most advanced technology so that they can't catch up in critical areas. now i have to talk to gina ryan mando, branded brussels in dispensable partner. the meeting also focused on artificial intelligence, climate solutions, and development of 6 g networks. but it has not gone as smoothly as those
8:20 pm
u. s. comments suggest with france among others, opposing a statement about for some of the goals. paris is still bristling over the new august pact which is between the u. s. u. k. and australia, which saw camber, a scrap, a $40000000000.00 submarine deal with france, called august a stab in the back raising fears about the future of the western alliance. political go expert in china told us that europe simply can't trust washington. you're looking really at being cheated by the us many times. if you're looking countries like you for lady, then the you come in stock is that you cannot love your end of the yellow estate also different degrees. i believe that you look half being the american lives in the us, owing to maintain independence, political, economic,
8:21 pm
and even military actually be companies in europe can not fully call pretty to china. the world largest condenser, much, or if you can have a lot if they don't fail to china, those companies. if you look at the trade data, if you will know that using the pen, that peers trying to train, we are you looking countries who in rapidly and they have increased by 20 percent and even the 30 percent. so yield nice china market and trying to protect more than 130 judges in the u. s. are being criticized for taking part in cases in which they or their families stood to financially gain. the wall street journal reports that 131 judges failed to recuse
8:22 pm
themselves from 685 cases since 2010 involving firms in which they or their families held shares. and 2 thirds of the cases ended up being ruled in their favor . the judges or relatives held stocks worth more than $15000.00 in companies involved in $173.00 cases and more than $50000.00 worth in $21.00 cases. the report also found that in $61.00 instances, the stocks were traded during court proceedings. us courts administrative office says that it is looking into these allegations. the wall 3 journals report on instances where conflicts inadvertently were not identified before. keith was, results, or transfer. dest, troubling, and the administrative office is carefully reviewing the matter. i can say, with absolute certainty, that i never made any decision in favor of a company, because i own stock, and was invested in that company. i dropped the ball. thank you for helping me stay on my toes the way i'm supposed to. i just blew it. i regret any question that i've
8:23 pm
created the appearance of impropriety or conflict of interest. the newspaper highlights a new york judge who handed a pollution claim against oil giant exxon mobil while owning ex on stock. and a colorado judge who oversaw case against nbc universal owner, comcast, in which they to own shares. just failure to step aside when there is a financial conflict of interest violates federal law, and this has sparked a furious public reaction. will they go to jail or be impeached? if not, then it's just another story of entitlement with no repercussions and prosecutions . we expect judges to be fair and impartial. you now see why americans didn't trust the resulting corruption in every level with no consequences. tell me how is that, okay? and nothing will happen. that's the whole problem. look at the senators who benefit from star traits, nothing out to them. different rules, different people,
8:24 pm
lawyer and new york politician marnie hall asa says that the situation under lines the reality of america's supposedly eagle impartiality. if it would have been one chase, that would have been fine, but instead it was a 131 judges and nearly 700 cases. so this really proves to be, you know, a pervasive and systemic disregard for the choose a law. and it really illustrates how the judges, the federal bench, the whole system as an institution, you know, is, is impartial and biased. i think this is just the tip of the iceberg. i think all these judges have been exploring this for choose all law for a long, long time when the public gets a win that the system is corrupt and you know, did the judiciary is not fair and impartial? i think that that really pushes the public to put pressure on our elected officials
8:25 pm
to come up with structures that demand impartiality either just for me this, i will be back and let's say 35 minutes with another full infrastructure news. stay with us, our traditional the imagine picking up a future textbook on the early years of the 21st century. what other chapters called gun violence school shootings, homelessness. first, it was my job and then it was my settled. then it was my savings. i have nothing, i have nothing and it's not like i don't try. i look for resources, i look for jobs, i look for everything i can to make this pass. and all i end up doing is testing the road to the american dream, paved with dead refugees at this very idealized image of the older america, native americans look past the death that happened every single day. this is

a modern history of the usa, my america on our t, jamie diamond was going to call back claim starting when it was a $200.00 point. it's now around 45000 coin, adding a point 10 x from here. so he's looking for up to $455.00 and about a coin. the length of universal healthcare makes america the country of every man for himself. we have a retirement crisis in this country and we have a health care crisis for seniors in this country as well. so private business has come up with special mechanism for that. it's called the live settlement market. we are a life settlement provider, which means that we buy life insurance policies from primarily seniors throughout the united states who no longer want or can afford their life insurance policies.
8:27 pm
if you are sick and for want to live a few more years, you can sell your life insurance. that way you get more money right away and the company collects your insurance. pay off to your desk. there's a group of people out there, i guess, hoping that people die soon. what kind of motivation is i give them when i start crying about them dying? that's usually what it's about. it's just the sheer unfairness of it all the time now where we receive so many inputs on a daily basis that are completely related to reality. so think about how and social media filters and they basically were present themselves in a very unrealistic way. and so we come at a fomo, there is any, be involved more than that. it's about being sort of envious or something that may not exist. and it's also really tied to the fact that as humans,
