using ai and using other advanced technologies, there has been on the defensive site with his our t breaking news, his, our a whistleblower report. serious flaws in pfizer coping vaccine testing procedures and says u s. officials refused to listen the latest from our correspondence in one minute. and also ahead, despite joe biden branding us democracy, the envy of the world, the world increasingly disagrees. as a poll shows a sharp dive at global perceptions of american democracy as well as its health care system. we discussed the findings with a former us congressman for the food in pledges. russia will be carbon neutral, no later than 2060 and a message to delegates of the u. n's climate summit in scotland and the west pushes for action. cop 26. we look at how they're ambitious plans might hurt nations
4:01 pm
dependent on popular ah, although this is alt internationals world views at 11 live from moscow on colin bry, welcome to the program. first, the breaking news than than a whistleblower is claiming that there are serious flaws in phases cobit vaccine trials. last year, she says she was fired the same day that she reported her findings and the u. s. authorities refusing to investigate. i crossed his forces, correspondence e gosh darn of either he got what exactly are the allegations then? we'll call in 1st thing to understand is that everything that we know so far about the story we know from the mouth of the person who well is the whistle blow was. so it is very much one sided right now. it's all reports and we, we can't really be independently verified, although we have requested pfizer the company in question, the sub contractor and the da for home and, but it's a very fresh, it's
4:02 pm
a breaking news story. so there is still to get back to us. so here's the thing in the course of this pandemic, all of us have become pretty much familiarized with the process of approval of a vaccine. something many of us do not expect to happen in the lifetime, but well, it did. so here's the thing. during the 3rd and the most pivotal phase of trials of the 5, the vaccine, we all know the company, pfizer, it hired several subcontractors, several contract to firms to do the testing for them to well to out soon the testing its a normal practice in total they tested the contractors tested the vaccine on some $40000.00 people. and the thing in question, the company in question was responsible for testing on about 1000 people. so just one company called it ven tavia, oftentimes we'll have to, i'll have to get back to you on how to correctly pronounce the name of the company . so and this person, the whistleblower, she used to work for that. and during,
4:03 pm
during her course, during her term at the company, she alleges that she observed and she witnessed some gross negligence, and some gross swell incompetence when it came to, when it came to, well, how the testing was conducted. for example, she said that the vaccines that were used on people that were not stored at proper temperatures, and it is crucial because it's, it's the thing, the 5, the vaccine is very temperature sensitive. so it has to be stored at a very certain and you know, very low temperature. so if it doesn't it well, it can do things can go terribly of ry. also, for example, those patients that who later showed some severe symptoms, some severe well side effects from the vaccine, some symptoms that could be side effects from the, from the job that those, that those patients, they will not looked after properly. that the company this than tavia that it didn't look into into these cases as it should have also protocol. the ations were
4:04 pm
not reported. or also there was a lack of follow up of timely follow up on patients in total, not just those who are showed any adverse events. this is what they were saying. and well, the final point that she was making that the company went after those people who well tried to point at these and all these facts at all, these events had all these circumstances. so, and she claimed that she herself was victim of this. and that she was fired because she tried to blow the whistle on this. so here's the result that she got when she reported all of this to the of the 8 a u. s. agency. that is tasked with well approving, giving the approval for the for a vaccine have a lesson within hours, jackson received an email from the if da, thanking her for her concerns, and notifying her that the f. d. a could not comment on any investigation that might result. a few days later, jackson received a call from an f da inspector to discuss her report,
4:05 pm
but was told that no further information could be provided. she heard nothing further in relation to her report. she says that the da got back to her, right, that right that day. and that was probably optimistic. she probably had an optimistic outlook on this. so the da now knows this. it is where so it will pay close attention to it. but here's the thing. she made the complaint in september of last year, the f. d. a gave the approval to the 5 vaccine only in december. it did not mention anything about this subcontract about this than tavia. it did not mention anything . it seemed, it was like the da da not didn't even know anything about the, about what jackson this woman reported to them. on top of that later, the f d a, they kind of, they, the while they looked into the, they looked into the, how the testing was done. they investigated that. and none of the,
4:06 pm
none of these sites where i've been, tavia, this company performed the phase 3 testing. none of those sites were inspected later by the da. so right now, again, we have request the comment from all sides, 5 of in tavia and the da, as soon as they get back to us, we will, will, will, will provide their opinion and their points of view on this. but right now we have some serious allegations from this whistleblower that as of now and answered ok, big questions for those companies and agencies involved but still also very important to point out but take a doctor's advice when asking about vaccinations and relations about what you get offered if it's been approved by the w h o, you're probably good to go. okay. or on a thanks for that. next, america's reputation on a global scale, it's suffering with widespread negative views of its democratic processes, as well as his health care system. not according to a recent survey conducted in 17 countries, and despite joe biden,
4:07 pm
describing us democracy as the envy of the world. democracy sometimes matching. it sometimes requires a little patience as well, but that patience has been rewarded now for more than 240 years. with a system of government governance spent the envy of the world. earlier and i'll take, i talked about the survey results with long time us congressman ron pole. he describes us democracy as a reflection because it's the money that's really in charge. we have now, as a corporate state, corporations are very, very powerful, they influence it. so it's not the people really voting. it's really the corporations that run things. so the corporations run medicine. they run the military industrial complex, they run all our schools now. so we're a long way off from what people think is democracy. know we're a long way off from freedom. we have now a reflection of democracy because the people with a lot of money and control the monetary system, the republicans are very much involved in this problem. i describe that if you get
4:08 pm
51 percent voting then you can turn it into a welfare state and then you can turn it into a corporate state and protect the big corporation. so the republicans endorsed that same principle, but when boston got in and what they're doing now, it's much worse because they continue it all the policies essentially were essentially wrong on this lockdown business and spending all this money and interfering with the practice of medicine, punishing people who wanted to have a debate on the care like we have for ever. so it's that that has made it much, much worse. and it's going to get much worse to if we don't release the freedom that the doctors need you in climate summit has got down to business in scotland with president putin endorsing russians, commitment to becoming a carbon neutral economy. no later than 2060 in support of global conservation efforts. as this is alicia, having set the task of building
4:09 pm
a carbon neutral economy, no later than 2060 russia is also relying on the unique resources of our forest ecosystems. enough, there significant potential for absorbing carbon dioxide and producing oxygen. what we'll do indeed, our country has about 20 percent of all the world's forest areas. nash's or india, which is one of the world's biggest polluters, has also set a target for becoming carbon neutral. the gear, though 2070, missing the summit goal by 2 decades. the indian prime ministers also asked for more money to be dulled out to developing countries for their transition to cleaner energy. saskia tailored next looks at how complying with emission goals may not be that simple for nations heavily dependent on fossil fuels. hope $26.00 is hair and it's going to save us from doomsday. i've a 100 wild need, is a setting out that goals for the future and that big ones, stop deforestation switched to renewables. 0 emissions and ohio electric. he
4:10 pm
nasty thing nature. like if i lived, we are digging our own grapes. humanity has long since run down the clock on climate change. it's one minute to midnight on that doomsday, and we need to act now. client change is already ravaged oral. we only have a brief window left for us to raise your visions to arrange, to meet the task. sounds great. the question is, who pay the biggest price for all these politicians patches? it's easy for both chad and co promised to turn off the light when they leave a room. but for others half way around the world, saying no to fossil fuels is a luxury. they just can't afford. if there is co will live. if there isn't any co, wouldn't not live one person in eastern india setup, but over 4000000 others all over the country would likely agree. because that's how
4:11 pm
many people rely on coal to keep a roof over their heads and food on that pace. the issue goes well beyond india, though the developing, learn a little industrialization stage, then you know what? we've gone one space or time. we don't that they will not be able to lift their societies out of poverty, coal consumption and coal as a basis for the livelihood will remain a fact. or sometime. in fact, tens of developing countries have come together terrified of what the grand goals of 0 emissions made up by rich nations will mean for them. this new goal, which has been advanced, runs counter to the parish agreement, and is until i equity and against climate, just this demands for net 0 emissions, for all countries by 2050, will exacerbate further the existing inequities between developed and developing countries. it's not just that developing nations struggle as it is with fossil
4:12 pm
fuels. it's not just that millions of jobs will be lost so that millions will be punched into poverty. now it's also that these nations are asking, why are we paying for greedy gonzalez? far away? the top 10 percent of countries consumed 20 times more energy than the bottom 10 percent. and 1100000000 sub saharan african share the same amounts of power generation capacity. as germany's 83000000 people, video gamers and california consume more electricity than entire nations. you won't hear anything about that, a call 20 sex. and remember when times were tough, winter was coming, a gas was running low in europe. funny how no one was shouting about being a doughty source of energy when they begged for the taps to be turned back on. but you will hear them say they won't finance fossil fuel projects in developing countries. why? because it's far away and won't affect whether that warm on a chilly december night. though if the budget can stretch, they might lend
4:13 pm
a helping hand to ease the pay. we want to do more to help countries around the world, especially developing countries, accelerate their clean energy transition, address pollution, and ensure the world we all must share. a cleaner, safer health is planet. we have an obligation to help make no mistake. this is not a judgment on green energy. the goals of those gathered in glasgow are undoubtedly noble. but do the politicians so desperate to be seen as the leaders who saved the planet, realize what that p off from the slogans actually mean for millions of people far away. and even if they did what they do, anything differently. there's some countries that actually have small populations, but consuming a lot of energy and everything. a lot of capital carbon people can see all around in most of the rich countries. it's not clear that they are really going to be themselves of it from coal. and i don't think that maybe realistic target will not
4:14 pm
much the 2015 batteries accord targets yet. so i think there's a lot of bluffing going on here. and i don't believe a lot of the, you know, the commitments are the pledges being made by rich countries with over 100 world leaders in attendance. the event has also attracted droves of activists on the line . and the urgency for global conservation efforts produced premier boris johnson echoed that sentiment warning of a possible doomsday scenario. well, americans, joe biden admitted it was, i running the despite at about a mental agenda. he'd recently called for the oil producing cartel opec to increase production on the surface. it seems like an irony, but the truth of the matter is you've all known. everyone knows that the idea we're going to be able to move to renewable energy overnight and not have and from this moment, not use oil or not use gas or not use hydrogen, is just not rational. it is hypocritical, of course, of many of those who are supporting the agenda to has
4:15 pm
a net 0 policy to then say that we need to have the fossil fuel industry is just that politicians are not being honest with the people in the next 2 weeks as the negotiators remain in glasgow, they will come out with a communique that suggests that something positive has been achieved. but my biggest fear is that there won't be a massive move from the paris accord as most people have wanted. and i think this will be a time when politicians have failed to achieve those big goals. group representing britain, state run hospitals and trusts is calling on the government to delay its mandatory cove vaccine policy for healthcare. stuff until next year. the head of n h. s. providers says that'll help the medical service get through the difficult winter period, otherwise the u. k. risks and accidents of unvaccinated workers and a deepening staff shortage. we've got a very,
4:16 pm
very difficult winter coming up and we know the n h s is going to be a full stretch, so it makes sense to set that deadline. once that period has passed, if we lose very large numbers of m vaccinated staff, particularly over the winter period, then that also constitutes a risk. the patient safety and quality of care. i comes as u k. paramedics raised fears of an unprecedented crisis facing the ambulance service with one local department last week, even pleading with the public to think twice before calling as that simply aren't enough people to cover the workload. the government also put troops on stand by to have the n h s. cope over the winter, and that could see them driving ambulances assisting with vaccines and also providing other hospital support. meanwhile, the british al secretary stressed the safety and effectiveness of inoculation, urging any one eligible to get their boost to jab before the winter. one doctor told us, though, that the vaccine issue is just one and a chair, staffing problem. there are reasons why people may choose not to get to vaccine,
4:17 pm
not necessarily because they don't believe in the vaccine book that may do the personal religious reasons or maybe other and personal health reasons. now we should allow individuals to have the flexibility to exercise their rights. it's a tricky one, isn't because as a healthcare professional, i want everybody to have the vaccine. but i understand this decision is personally working in the just the moment. ease and exhausting. you get up early in the morning and you stay late until evening and you're not quite sure whether or not you're going to manage to work and continue to be safe. certainly by the middle of the day you're exhausted. so fatigued is difficult to make decisions and you worry that by the afternoon patients will not get high quality care. we simply don't have the workforce anymore to provide a safe service. and we have had a huge number of people who dna just especially of the last year. i have thought about the unit test. i think anybody tells you that went to the unit, testing. 100 percent is probably lighting research by the health care workers
4:18 pm
foundation has shown that almost 75 percent of an h. s staff of considered leaving within the past 12 months with nearly every 3rd health work is saying there was a strong likelihood that they would quit in the next year. book that i get says that they get a chest needs the government to take real action as never before. at least give them things they're doing and also help the n h s. i believe the government think it just is blanket that we take too much funding that we complain too much that we could probably give them all that was absolutely categorically wrong. then a chess is crumbling around us. we are all broken, we're all tired and we need the government to do all over the last 10 years. if we had made a decent sustained. and the key point carry, sustained investment in this could have been averted, but it's difficult to actually invest in p p when you're not sure if the money is going to come the following year and year after,
4:19 pm
you can only buy short packets or can show to if you're not sure that the money is going to come in the future, so the real problem that we have lack of sustained promised investment, the pentagon prevailed, it's temporarily removed more than a 100000 photos and videos from its website in a bit to protect afghans who helped it in the 20 year war, spoke to person john kirby added that the removal process is still ongoing. and as the effort to get allied locals out of the country to avoid potential reprisals from the taliban. frankly, this is not the kind of thing that i wanted to be able or have to talk about, because we're still trying to get many of these, these afghans out of the country. so we, we did it out of an abundance of caution, out of respect for the obligation that we have, that these individuals into their families. the defense department admits 28000 eligible citizens haven't received visas to get out of the country yet. and less than $9000.00 of them have been evacuated. the pentagon added that there are also
4:20 pm
more than $400.00 u. s. citizens still stuck in afghanistan, a significantly higher number than previously officially stated. as go live now to retired, u. s. navy intelligence officer, steven rogers, welcome back to our t. oh, what do you think about the thoughts of those critics who are questioning why the removal of sensitive footage any began 2 months ago and white still not complete, especially given how much potential danger those allied afghans are in? well look to pentagon just gave us another excuse towards their catastrophic withdrawal from afghanistan. look, if they were really concerned about the people that work with the united states and the people left behind, they would have had a plan in, in that plan would have been to remove everything, all the data, all the photos, every possible lead to these people. months before the withdrawal, they found up they messed up. and here we go again. you know, there's a saying back here in the states will to middle to late while to little too late.
4:21 pm
this again is a catastrophe on top of a catastrophe, mal not stable because it's also been reported a 2 months ago, us day to an afghan allies had fallen into the hands of the taliban. so even if the pentagon clears up it's i website, or those afghans still in danger. well, think about this, so we have totally underestimated the ability of the taliban to a fight, a war if you will. there's no doubt in my mind that months ago, perhaps even a year ago or ongoing since the war started, they were collecting intelligence and information on not only the americans that were there, but a lot of the afghans that were there aiding the americans. so to try to lead the american people to believe that the taliban did already have all this information is ludicrous. i think it's a good thing with the pentagon did. but like i said to little too late, the 1000 to help the pentagon is still stuck in afghanistan, will tell you about the pace of the evacuation. it does feel like it's far too slow . it sure is a look. we still got americans there. we used to have this
4:22 pm
a free being proud to say no merican left behind, but i've got to tell you it was the bite administration really mess this thing up. is created a problem with our allies. a problem with people that may not necessarily be el eyes of the united states, but at the same time they usually respect us. we lost a lot as a result of joe biden, but i have confidence that at one point, we'll get it back. it's going to take time, but we got to get back the trust of the american people. ready for the u. s. government before anything else at the us, keep changing its official data on this, this time it's about the number of citizens still stuck in afghanistan. figure does this raise questions more of either the efficiency of the evacuation or the transparency about the evacuation operation, while both the efficiency and the transparency and, and keep in mind when you're telling the truth and when you're transparent, you don't have to change a story of every time you bring up a good point, there seems to be a different reason, a different excuse at, at a white house every week. but when you're trying to cover up a cover up a cover up,
4:23 pm
well, you're going to have a different story every week. so it's a fouled up mess up situation that they're in. they're trying to justify what they're doing now with the american people. and i'm sure our allies are not buying it. and thanks for sharing your thoughts on this former us of intelligence officer, steven rogers in new jersey. thank you. always a pleasure vacuum. next, the french presidents has delayed retaliatory measures against the u. k. though for the latest escalation in a long standing row on fishing rights, it's become a major post, breaks it stumbling point with britain now warning that it's ready to take legal action. if france doesn't stick to the trade agreements that were reached last year, were on that next from artie. charlotte to bend ski. i'm not sure that a solution is inside, but what we've seen for the moment is that the sanctions that have been threatened now by french for weeks have at least been put on ice, is more talks will take place at later this week. but i want to talk about the sanctions that have been threatened by france. they've talked about increasing the
4:24 pm
checks on vans and laurie's coming in to france. so customers checks. it talked about banning british boats from offloading their catch here and from fishing in french waters. this even being talk about either increasing the price of electricity to the channel islands ought to be cutting that electricity supply off altogether. so these are very serious threats as both sides are accusing each other of being in the wrong here. but the u. k. foreign secretary list trust, these accusations, these threats have to stop, stop threatening a u. k. a fishing vessels stop threatening the channel ports and accept the we are entirely within our rights to allocate the fishing licenses in line with the trade agreement as we have done. now, there has already been one person who has fallen foul of this fuel a casualty. that was a british trula that was detained by the french authorities last week. the french
4:25 pm
accusing the skipper of that trula of not having the right licenses to fish in french water for scallops. now, as a result, the boat was detained and we understand that the skipper whose facing those charges will appear in court next year if found guilty, could face a fine of up to $75000.00 euro. so you know that new small beer when you're looking at what the results could be of this escalation of any tensions between the french and the brit over fishing licenses. now, france wants more license is, it says that the u. k. must provide these licenses under the withdrawal agreement for the briggs. it chord, the u. k says look, we're abiding by everything that we committed to. so neither side wanting to particularly stand down in this situation. those talks ongoing. but for fishermen who rely on being able to go to british waters to land, they catch that's french fitch men here they are just fed up with all of these
4:26 pm
delays. and only we have been in limbo regarding the issue of access to british waters near jersey in guernsey for 11 months now. i know very well the tactical maneuvers by both sides. everyone immediately beginning to flex their muscles. fishermen, however, do not want to live on benefits. they want to earn their own money, less crew. this is hard for us. the fishermen did not ask for briggs. it before it happened. they had the right to fish everywhere, and then they were suddenly told, no, you cannot enter the area on the british side. this leads to a decrease in turnover and makes both less profitable. now, here in berlin soon there, which is francis largest fishing port. fishing is a huge industry, it's not just about the fishermen who go out and want to fish in those british waters is also about the vendors and the knock on effect that that has on the economy of a port town like this. and we've been speaking to locals here, you say that the not only fully support the idea of sanctions,
4:27 pm
but they ready to blockade the port and of us because she that we should use it. i think it's very go to france, impose sanctions and forbid the english to come here, because we have no rights and we don't even have anything to sell. i think our boats are ready to blog to port. it's necessary that the british give licenses to the french. i know they protect their own interests, but they need to stick to their commitments as fish mongers were unhappy because the british fish is what we sell the most. it's around 80 percent overall. there's also an accusation from the british that this is a bit more than just about the fishing licenses, that this is about politics, particularly as ad there is a presidential election here in france in the next 6 months. although at present, my con hasn't officially declared yet, it is expected that he will be seeking re election. and this is seen by many in the u. k as being his way of shoring up some support ahead of those it difficult election months. and that this is an issue that's been used as a way to political reasons. we know that as young cast x,
4:28 pm
the french prime minister, he had written to the european union, calling for the union to act more strongly against the british. and also suggesting that this was a way of perhaps showing that there would be briggs, etc, a type countries in the u, if they're thinking of doing the same that leaving the block is incredibly difficult. the talks though, on these fishing licenses, due to take place later this week, we'll wait for the results of that. but i would just say, given what we've heard over the last few months, neither is going to be likely to let the other off the hook very easily. ok, finishing up with a very unusual sight here in moscow and a definite sign that alternates well and truly here. overnight through this morning, a thick blanket of folk descended on the capital enough for me to register to declare a yellow emergency because of the reduced visibility and a major warning for motorists to be a bit more attentive to. haunting hays is also seen plenty of evocative photos appear online as well as a gesture. look some of them up. well,
4:29 pm
there is the kind of ground fault that's commonly seen in cities around the world. it is definitely a rare occurrence here in moscow. that's for the moscow news room for this, our very clear picture and view up ahead with maxim stacy, your latest kaiser report only on our t. ah, patty, this is max kaiser. this is the casa report. wow. you know, things are, of course, playing out as we've been protecting. they would, we've got the very central banks putting on their kabuki costumes and getting ready
4:30 pm
to go out on stage and perform their ritualistic nod to the need to raise rates, followed by their ritualistic denial that they are able to raise rates, followed by massive quantitative easing money printing an hyperinflation. once again. oh boy, it gets so entertaining. yes, ma'am. that sounds very spooky. and it's probably because everybody spooks, perhaps, because of halloween, perhaps because of the data coming out that even that, that, that data, the signal campy, hidden suddenly hawkish, bank of canada and q e moves rate hikes forward one year in 2 year yields spike spooked by inflation not being temporary, also spoofed, is that the fed because g d p growth is only up 2 percent and the 3rd quarter, not the 7 percent that it was expected by goldman sachs. right? yeah. okay. so the rate raises that they should have done 10 years ago, 987 years ago, 654 years ago, 3 to one year ago that never.
