a 31 year record. citizens respond. we have to buy food and do things like different ways. i don't think you're saving money. i definitely feel ian facial more on food. i think a lot of people were out of work or spending their savings just to stay alive. and the regional government in australia is on course to get sweeping new powers in a pandemic bill despite last ditch amendments from the public outcry. ah, that very well welcome to you. you're watching auntie international with me, nicky aaron has help story this. our poland has find water cannon until gas as it attempts to cold back a search of migrants trying to make it across the border from beller. bruce also says it's expecting a situation to continue for potentially months. let's look at what's been playing
8:02 pm
out on the frontier over the past few hours. ah. with basically what the migrants are doing, they are throwing whatever rubbish they can find as well as logs at the police look over there, they are throwing rocks and they're trying to dismantle that part of the bob. while again, you can see them using purpose grades, military grade, so okay, we have to move out when he back up and go back to safety. so we will keep the broadcast. we'll keep showing in. maybe we'll move behind the 1st fence that they have,
8:03 pm
that they have already dismantled and you can see people quickly to retreat from over there. now they have brought a water cannon. i think they, they're bringing to water can. okay, we have to move out. this is the sound and you can see more tear gas more tear gas canisters being used against the migrants here. and now we can hear the approach of a military helicopter. it is a polish military helicopter. this has been used a as surveillance on behalf of the polish side. so you know, getting a birds eye view on the, you know, on the location of all the migrants and also it, it is used as a scare tactics. it looks like part of a fence, a part of offense is almost down so. so the polish, the polish border patrol, the polish military police, they have been they have been manning that section of the fence more extensively than others. and there's also another water cannon. now helping out from over there, you can see it, you know, arching a spray of tear gas from a boarded check point. and we are right now as close as we can get to the board. a
8:04 pm
check point where the, the image surety of the action is going on right now. you can see a group of most active people pelting, pelting the, pelting them with the military police, the polish military police, with rocks. now, this koya it's, it's quite interesting where they getting the rocks from now, because for example, if you look over there, there's a group of migrants. they are getting the rocks and providing their compatriots and providing other riots, migrants riding migrants with ammunition. this is what they're doing, and we've just been purpose grade. i'm afraid this is what happens when this is what happens when you, when you hook this close to the action. it is, it is getting in the eyes that is getting everywhere to fly videos like this, a un spokesperson was unable to confirm where the water cannon had been used at the border. he stressed though that no force that should be used against my glance. meanwhile, russia has criticized poland for its violent actions,
8:05 pm
polish actions that absolutely unacceptable to tear gas water cannon shots fired over the heads of migrants towards ballers. this reflects a desire to hide their actions. they cannot understand that they are violating every conceivable norm of international humanitarian law. was 3000000. but ever salia warned that sanctions meant it with little inclined to stop people trying to cross the border. martin told sir who represents germany's left party in the hamburg parliament save blaming minsk for the crisis isn't going to solve it. first, we have to say that poland causes abusing and contradicting international law is no more conventional to protect refugees, synthesis and the effect you want to have a solution. you have to think that you have to stop the aggression against the software and the to your people in the middle east and in north africa. and with
8:06 pm
that and give those people the possibility to have countries to stabilize step by step, full refugees, crisis multi things and build on the incentive field of laid that locally cost. so it will be good to have negotiations in between b, p in union and bella was the book before to be european union except the seller and the to your countries doesn't matter. it spells venezuela are they always counting the election results? this is not only all we can establish international relations which are fruitful, so that has to be changed as night draws in, in deliveries. some migraine has had been relocated to shelter near the frontier. the re purpose warehouse is currently housing around a 1000 people, including women and children, not is english donna reports from the scene. so following today's failed attempt to
8:07 pm
stormed the polish border to take it by force. well, dozens of migrants have expressed willingness to believe all of that behind to leave all these camps behind life in the wilderness behind and to go to a special center that has been set up by the villa. russian authorities the, by the russian government for them with the warehouse is located 500 meters from the border. it was decided to quickly clear some space there, so that people won't have to sleep rough for a 2nd night. in the space of 2 hours, goods were moved to one end of the warehouse, this liberator about 40 percent of the space. additionally, medical teams are on their way to the site. they will check temperatures and move those with a high temperature to a separate area. this what you're seeing all around me is a logistics center next to the border. it normally normal life, it, it was used before. the border checkpoint was closed due to the migrant crisis. it was used to sort out cargo goods, you know,
8:08 pm
that sort of stuff. now the bill of russian government has organized, you know, there are sleeping math here that have been provided by the are but a russian side or are, you know, they have a roof over their heads. there's no wind, it is much warmer here inside. in fact, for the 1st time here, i can actually see what these people are wearing under their overcoats because previously, every single day they would put as much things as much clothes on, on them as possible, as many, well, you know, overcoat and such. so you can see this is, well, this is, it can be compared to the conditions that i had to survive. and i just, yesterday his a new batch of bi grants that you can see arriving to the center. and there's a lot of them i think the initially about 40 to 60 people expressed the desire to come here. but well, now i think this number is reaching a 100. i maybe goes even exceeds this figure. so basically, the main purpose of this place is to provide
8:09 pm
a proper shelter to the most vulnerable, you know, so that the polls do not shine blinding spotlights in your, in your face as you're trying to go to sleep and so on. you know, no wind, you know, if it rains these people are now safety up. and so what will happen next to the authorities? the bell, russian authorities will go on and try to establish the identity of every single person here. because some of them don't even have their documents on them and well then they will be flown. hopefully they will be able to fly back home back to we're back to where ever they came from because this is their main purpose. they came forward and said, we want to go home. we don't wanna, you know, cross into europe anymore. we've given up on this idea. we want to go home. and so people, they will be trying to, you know, the authorities, they will be identifying these people and, well, hopefully facilitating the return. the west accuses deliveries have deliberately funnelling migrants from the middle east into the area,
8:10 pm
the claim. minsk denies both the u. s. and e, you are preparing new sanctions. another country that's dealing with a new influx of migrants is iran. people have been fleeing there from neighboring afghanistan since the taliban to control of the country. but international aid organizations have actually cut refugee aid to to run something. the un has condemned non profit organization, the norwegian refugee council. phase 4 to 5000 people have been crossing from afghanistan into iran daily. since the taliban take over, it states that amounts to 300000 refugees on top of the large number of displaced people that were already in the country. the group recently visited migrant camps that to monitor the conditions people are living in layla. matar was among the delegation, she says a rounds in urgent need of international aid. while i was there, we spoke to several families who have been on the ground for a very long time in iran. and they all say that every family member,
8:11 pm
they speak with back in afghanistan in cobble and elsewhere in the country. all tell them the same thing that they're on the way to the border. they're trying to find a way out there trying to get into iran because it's become absolutely hopeless to live in afghanistan and much due to the economic collapse in the country. and those families, me spoke to say that, you know, they have so little already to share among so many. and they worry that unless the international community 1000 give more support to neighboring countries of, of gas down there will simply not be enough just court. everyone with their basic needs. this is in a context where iran itself has economic challenges as a result of sanctions and coven. 19 general there has not been adequate attention to the situation in the neighboring countries of us. gone is that it is always the neighboring countries that shoulder, that major responsibility when there's a massive refugee flown. it's remarkable that iran is able to absorb 40025000 refugees coming from august on every day. and yet,
8:12 pm
europe is not able to deal with the 4000 or a few 1000 refugees at the polish quarter. but it's also equally unfortunate and outrageous that the beller as authorities are using refugees as a tactic to win an international geopolitical game. a war of words has broken out between russia and the u. s. i've a military activity in space that comes off the washington accused. moscow of putting the international space station endangered by conducting an anti satellite weapons test. russia hit back pointing out that washington has carried out similar tests. nasa chief bill nelson spoke to the head of rushes space agency roles cosmo . to express his concerns about the threats day we from the satellite posed to those on board the i assess what was caused most had to meet you or goes in said that both agencies were working closely to ensure the safety of their crews, according to a russian ministry of defense simulation the day we did not endanger the space
8:13 pm
station that did not stop the u. s. state department from condemning the test. rushes dangerous and irresponsible behavior jeopardizes the long term sustainability of our outer space and clearly demonstrates that russia's claims of opposing the weapons and weapon ization of space are disingenuous and hypocritical . according to the state department of russia, weapons test created more than 1500 pieces of space junk debris created by the missile, which now threatens the crew, aboard the international space station, forcing them to seek shelter in their docked capsules, disrupting their work. this is something that before the test, we had raised repeatedly with senior officials in moscow to underscore the irresponsibility that such a maneuver would entail for the international community. meantime, russia has stated the u. s. has had its own types of weapon tests in outer space. in ton the pentagon post before these official steps and even more so after is actively developing and testing the latest strike combat weapons of various types
8:14 pm
in orbit without any notification. now the u. s. space command says that it's tracking a field of orbiting to bring the apparent result of a satellite break up, but at this time the i assess, appears to be functioning normally. and all 7 crew members on board are safe. meantime, the russian space agency has acknowledged that something has happened, but not specifically what, but had told me that ensuring crew safety has always been and remains its top priority and continues to monitor the situation to prevent and counter all possible threats to the safety of the international space station and its crew mark is soaring, inflation is expected to spike further on the back of a 2 trillion dollars spending plan approved by president biden. price is arising at the highest rate in 31 years and is hitting people hard in that pockets. not everyone is worried though much of the u. s. media thinks everything's under control. i recently deleted tweet from m s m b c. even claim storing price is all not such
8:15 pm
a bad thing that prompted people to take to social media and off of their response to that suggestion. people not been able to afford groceries is a good saying, or antics. all of you more, more on selling us more money coming out of our pocket is a good thing. no reason will ever make a reasonable personal, say, inflation is a good thing. amazon dessy believes inflation is a good thing that i will wallace and purses disagree. and miss nbc followed up with another tweet saying they deleted one miss represented the article, it was linking say that the idea of a soaring costs are an overall good thing under president python. at least his gains traction in the media. caleb, more pin asked new york as if they agree whether it's mel for gasoline, the prices of every day commodities are rising. american families are being squeezed now more. busy than ever, some voices in mainstream media. so the solution is pretty simple. stop complaining and deal with it. and the dirty little secret here, willi,
8:16 pm
while nobody likes to pay more, on average, we have the money to do so. household savings had a record high over the pandemic. we didn't really have anywhere to go out and spend according to m as in b. c house, stephanie rule, household savings hit a record high. during the pandemic, we didn't have anywhere to go out and spend. we decided to put that theory to the test. people savers have gone. i'm now now i don't think so because things are more expensive. we have to buy food and do things like different ways. i don't think you save money, especially way, transportation and everything. i definitely feel ian facia and have more on food. you notice the difference like in proteins and just in general? softly worrying. i don't know too much. not a great financial guy, but extern says the economy is a little bit. we're an semi us, i think a lot of people are out of work and others spending their savings just to stay alive honestly. yeah. what about all the people lost her job? well, a lot of those people are definitely spending their savings, myself included. what rules theory ignores, is that sense? the pandemic? many americans have lost their jobs or seen
8:17 pm
a significant decrease in their incomes. the federal reserve is warning that inflation won't be stopping any time soon. and that we should be expecting rising prices for at least the next few months. food banks across the country have never been busier. hit with demand from desperate americans who are hit by the double whammy of rising prices. amid a supply chain crisis. i would say that in our county specifically, we've seen a dramatic increase in food insecurity. we've had to make a lot of really tough choices. and so one of the things that we're always trying to reiterates is that we're still in the midst of a disaster. meanwhile, the specter of rising taxes hangs over many americans biden promises that he will only raise taxes on the altar while say, however, the tax policy center says that many middle class households could be effective. republicans say that biden's build back better plan for increasing spending will make things worse, joe biden, and commonly harris and the rest of the administration. they don't care,
8:18 pm
they want you not to be able to fulfill up gas in your car. they want your electricity bill to be higher, they want your heating bill to be higher. of course it doesn't impact them. according to a recent poll, 70 percent of americans are dismayed by the current economic situation, while 50 percent blame biden for soaring inflation. not surprisingly, biden's, popularity has taken a knock. now 51 percent of voters say they favor the g o. p. giving republicans the highest lead facing the mid term in decades. biden promised to rescue the country from a crisis that he blamed on donald trump. however, over the past few months, things don't really seem to have improved with the country financially squeezed. this could mean a big turnaround when it comes to the mid terms. caleb martin r t new york authorities in the australian state of victoria are expected to get sweeping new powers under
8:19 pm
a fiercely contested pandemic built despite last minute changes on public fury. a oh, monday night. thousands of protest is camp outside the state parliament in melbourne, venting the anger over the draft legislation and response the government more to dig down. essentially in a bid to get the bill through the upper house, the key concessions are that finds the cove. it will break as have been lowered. the threshold for declaring a pandemic has been raised and the right to protest is protected. that old follows weeks of public unrest. the victoria premier has defended the bill saying gets about quote, keeping people safe, and they have to include safeguards to prevent abuse pala meanwhile, a top health official and another australian state. queensland has issued a warning to people who receives cove, its shots. he said, vaccine hesitant citizens could effectively be banished from society. crizotti impacts that lawful the miserable without being fact cited. it's going to be very
8:20 pm
hard to maintain your employment if you're not vaccinated, or you won't be able to go any way free entertainment. australia has an 83 percent covered vaccination rate. well as well, queens lindsey's also high, it's 70 percent. but despite reaching international herd, immunity targets australia seeking to ratchet up the pressure on the unvaccinated. earlier we asked professor of epidemiology, katherine bennett, who's in the victoria state capital, have melbourne is the new bill that is the right response to the disease. part of the reason they argued that i'm having a pandemic bill was going to be important, was that it would allow some of the decision making processes to become more transparent actually. but there was concern that when it came back that it didn't actually have some of the oversight automatically written in that would ensure that this was going to happen in that way. so it's really important the changes we've seen in the last 24 hours. i think a key changes to help achieve what they plan to achieve,
8:21 pm
but without risking giving so much authority to someone who, who also is the person who, coals whether or not they need to consult with people. so what we're saying is they're trying to make the point that you need to get vaccinated, said just drawing a very hard line and trying to encourage people to vaccinate. but i think this, they recent, the epidemiological argument to support keeping unvaccinated paper locked out for the long term. it just doesn't make sense because the risk differential is, is, is very small. if you have such a small proportion of the adult population who are unvaccinated, the pentagon is at war with oklahoma national guard a, the compulsory vaccines is threatening disciplinary action if guardsmen skip that jobs, after their commander openly flouted the order. it is a lawful order for national guardsmen to receive the coven vaccine. it is a lawful order refusing to do that. absent of an approved exemption,
8:22 pm
puts them in the same potential as active duty members who refused the vaccine. in mid september, u. s. defense secretary lloyd austin, announced all uniformed personnel would have to get vaccinated. however, the newly appointed commander of oklahoma's national guard said hit turn a blind eye to noncompliance among his troops. by here, by order that no oklahoma guardsmen be required to take the cove at 19 vaccine, notwithstanding any other federal requirement. additionally, no negative administration or legal action will be taken against guardsman, who refused the vaccine. and libertarian vice presidential candidate for 2020 spike po, unsafe the measures only exacerbate the rift between state and federal government. i think we're seeing the beginnings of an increasing standoff between the biden administration and state governments. whether you're talking about the governments themselves or the state national guards, or even some of the city government, not just on this, but on quite
8:23 pm
a few things. we're seeing an increasing fighting between different levels of government, between the bio and ministration. largely on political lines between republicans and democrats, but also on disagreements over how to move forward. when it comes to coven, it's likely to spread to other states, especially now with the us, with the federal courts. holding up, one of the vaccine mandates and many state governments already suing the by the ministration that we're seeing in some police departments. as many as 40 percent of police and other 1st responder are refusing to take the vaccine, i suspect the numbers are lower among the troops, but it's probably not that much lower. and these are the kinds of things you know that the, by the ministration needs to think about when they're deciding to try to shove the vaccines down the road to people who don't want them. americans trust in the mass media has slumped to its lowest level since 2016 is taking a toll on mainstream tv networks with cnn, seeing gets prime time view,
8:24 pm
and numbers plummets by almost 50 percent. over the past year ortiz dunney armstrong picks up the story. trust they say it takes years earn and only seconds to break and for ever to repair. for u. s. means she media. those seconds have turned into months of nose diving, viewing figures amid a crisis of confidence on saturday, eights hop, c n. n report to ridicule reports of supply chain disruptions by taking a pop at average joe, the supply chain, she exclaims, looking for milk for 2 year old look at this amazing overflowing abundance. he responds such contempt from u. s. media for the current difficulties faced by so many has led to wide spread condemnation. with many americans bemoaning and out of touch media that is alienating its own audience. i don't see a thing, therefore this thing must not exist. this person calls himself a journalist. can't wait to hear
8:25 pm
a 3rd person commentary on gas prices. everything's fine in my bubble of reality. his milk is 300 percent the price. it was 2 years ago, but wages have only gone to 3 percent, and inflation is outpacing growth. abundance doesn't help or so please rename your show to literally anything that doesn't have the word reliable in it. it's false advertising. so the chasm in communication between the public and the press is widening major channels like m s, n, b, c, and c, n n. have seen their respective prime time spot nosedive by just under half of their total viewership. but it's not just the democrat liberal media that's losing touch with its base. fox news viewership is down a 3rd from the same period just a year earlier. now back then, the media consistently found ratings. thanks largely to donald trump, but in a biden era that's all changed. not so long ago, buzzfeed learned the hard way about dwindling audiences when the company laid off
8:26 pm
a 3rd of its staff. but not only both feed old u. s. traditional media have faced the year on year decline. just let the 10s of thousands of media jobs being white out. the media. so to announce the highest job cuts on record in 2020 this industry, which includes television and movie production, news and advertising, and as $30711.00 cuts. this is 201 percent higher than the 10201 cuts announcing the sector in 2019. and while traditional media continues to report an agenda, rather than covering issues at the heart of society, that trust whereas ever thinner and ratings plunge ever further, perhaps by raining in their reporting by is just a little mainstream. media won't just be doing their view as a favor, but also themselves as well. we spoke to journalists chadwick more. he thinks there's a growing rift between what americans want to see on their t v screens and what they're being shown. i don't think that this trust can be
8:27 pm
gained. i think that so many people feel so burned and deceived and misled by media . how do you forgive that? when you see just how corrupt they are and how much they think their heels in and continue to dig their heels in to their biases and their spin and their hatred of conservative republicans of average americans. just these are problems that don't interest them. they're interested in climate change, they're interested in race conspiracy theories. and they can help themselves report on that. i think that's also responsible for the, the tank and ratings in the, in the ever increasing divide between the people who deliver the news and the people i hope consume it. and the average people who. ready are just tuning out and they're not interested in what these people have to say. they don't speak to them. and that's the i rate on the investigative journalism. great contact very task has been slammed by right scripts, the case relates to the alleged theft of a diary belonging to president joe bindings. daughter ashley project veritas has engaged in disgraceful deceptions and reasonable observers might not consider their
8:28 pm
activities to be journalism atoll. unless the government had good reason to believe that project veritax employees were directly involved in the criminal theft. the diary should not have subjected them to invasive searches and seizures. project veritas, as it was given the diary by 2 individuals, it never published it and handed it over to the police. and during the raid the f. b, i seized the phone a founder, james, i keith i, they confiscated my phone, they rated my apartment on my phone, where many my reporters notes. a lot of my sources on related to this story and a lot of confidential donor information to our news organization. the f b, i would only say its agents had performed laur inforcement activity. the homes of 2 of o'keefe associates were also searched, pulitzer prize winning journalist and chris hedges. believes it's all part of the by an administration, sped to pressure. the opposition. this is part of
8:29 pm
a broader pattern by dividing ministration to really run roughshod over legal norms against anybody they consider to be part of the opposition project. very to us, of course, targeting liberal left when groups and this gets into the whole subpoena power in the committee that is within the congress that's been set up by the democratic party leadership to investigate the mob assault on january 6th. so unfortunately, it's not an isolated in st incident and it's one that's extremely disturbing should be disturbing, but with a partisan divide here, any kind of assault, including censoring the contents of hunter biden's laptop, remember they locked the new york post, which broke that story out of its own twitter account called it disinformation, although it turns out that everything on that laptop was not this information,
8:30 pm
even the biden's didn't and neither was real. so this is just one more example of the polarization that exists within the country and how the democratic party is quite willing to use questionable tactics in order to silence trump supporters and, and people they consider part of the opposition. thanks for joining us on our t international. well, the back in 30 minutes with the latest ah, [000:00:00;00] with we're empowering ourselves to be more efficient quicker with our transactions. but with that comes a trade off. every device is
