10:00 am
culture transforming the regional mind. aah! in the story. first thing, coordination with allies and the u. s. the days we're leasing strategic oil reserves to bring down pet full prices of to failed attempts to convince opec to boost production. what i will never accept is idiots who under the guise we at the satisfied use pure violence against people. the dutch prime minister lashing out a protest as often nights of writing against tough, new covey prescriptions as cases surge and lock guns of re imposed across europe. and in new york, a survey shows that more than half of the cities police wish they had never joined the force. we hear from an officer about the growing pressures we have to wear to the officials who campaign on promises. we're going to be active, we prosecute cops, or what else could you possibly expect to happen?
10:01 am
so they're going to take a step back in. this isn't going to make any ones they wouldn't safer. ah. color their life not is we'll use age q most are this tuesday. we're welcome to the program, kevin o'neill, with the latest news addition. i needed an unprecedented move, as you heard that president biden's opened the nation strategic petroleum reserve there for making available some 15000000 barrels of oil through the coming months. let's get lights on this and the ramifications of it. caleb opens across the new york city a caleb, so the white house says they should sit theory, bring down all prices and pressure opec, but not everyone's convinced. tonight are they while this decision was made jointly with other oil consuming countries like india, japan and south korea, and the idea is to curb the rising energy prices. now,
10:02 am
at this point, it's considered to be somewhat of a p. r, move for the biden administration, but all ready, all across social media. we have people mocking it, saying it is a disaster is move that it looks very desperate and almost ridiculous on the part of the biden administration to be doing this to be tapping into the oil reserves. now, it's important to keep in mind at this point, 70 percent of the u. s. public says the economy is moving in a bad direction. biden is at this point less popular than trump ever was. yeah. is it going to make much difference? and we're talking about $50000000.00 barrels here. it sounds like a heck of a lot. but on the grand scale of things, it isn't. it's only the last couple of weeks in america. while the bottom administration basically blames the rising energy prices on the fact that the global oil supply is not keeping pace with demand, they have at this point, blamed other countries and companies for,
10:03 am
as well as energy companies for not passing, decreases and oil prices to consumers daily consumption at this point in united states as 182-1900 1000000 barrels. so this move by the buying and ministration is essentially releasing 3 days worth of oil. and that would be gradually over the next few months. so not making a huge amount of difference. now, biden and other administration officials have been pressuring the opec countries, led by saudi arabian russia to pump more oil in the hopes that it would lower the gas prices. opec member countries represent 70 percent 77 percent of all crude oil reserves down production has declined to ramp up. they, they simply haven't ramped up production. so at this point, it's failed to have any impact so far. energy prices continue to rise. alright california, so the update from new york city that us get more thought. so this co load to alexandra, captain economist and financial expert on the line. hey that. so what do you think about this? we're hearing what we'll talk about the impact. it's not hard,
10:04 am
but 1st of all is quite a big deal to open this strategic reserve for something that it's not really seen as being a huge emergency in your life. very unusual or culture like that, that the strong determination from the by the failure to try to be on prices and the pictorial progress on the domestic market to get mentioned, the figures are not very good because if you need them on consumption in the us, you know that the pricing of the company on the
10:05 am
margin. so what matters is the not good job of ours that comes up with jones on the market. so in this book, it has them on the market and they can put some bidding on the market. they think to what 1 may call by their foot biden, or in which the mistake and put that somewhere between $80.85 a lot more. i want to talk about it. we've got a bit of a bad line that is some cross to going on. it's not great. so we can talk to behind the scenes and get some more for you and then played. so a view is a bit later, but for now it's other concept blog with this economists and financial expert get more folks from you soon sort a bit later then, but next europe. so the grip of another wave cove it with cases rising in germany and the netherlands in the 10s of thousands as a response. tough restrictions of being re imposed across the continent. spoken public outcry. authorities in the netherlands detained at least $130.00 as anti
10:06 am
locked protest turned violent. the dutch pro minister calling that's responsible, it is. and so to me, as a prime minister, as a liberal, i will always defend demonstrations in this country as part of our democracy, of our rule of law. what i will never accept is idiots who under the guise, if we are dissatisfied use pure violence against people who are working every day to keep it come to say it kills me. while in germany, the number of new corona virus cases is more than doubled over the last 2 weeks of health care workers holding the big push to the limit. nothing even need to have been working here for 5 years. and the situation has never been as bad as it is. now. we are completely overwhelmed with an incredible number of patients. we no longer have an intensive care unit. all this patients are waiting until best become available. eventually, patients that need to go and ventilators will be in the emergency department, rather than in the intensive care unit. there should actually be 7 nurses on duty,
10:07 am
but we only have 4. and sometimes 3. it is not clear how we can take care of patients adequately. right, with a rough on the latest and germany has your correspondent and what is the serious debate sounds away in germany right now. well, the, whether the country should follow australia is lead and making vaccine. mandatory austria will make that move from the 1st of february of next year. the debate in germany is really over whether it would be legal or not under the current constitution. there are other measures being taken though, in some regions in germany or imposing nighttime curfews thing. you can go out of your home after 10 pm. while this, if you've stood god, becomes the latest region, the latest area to cancel christmas markets for the festive period. following on from the state of bavaria, the states of saxony and a number of other cities across the country angular merkel has described this 4th wave of covert 19 as the worst thing the country has faced. while health minister
10:08 am
n spon is painted a bleak picture of the way he sees the current state of affairs, the chinese and the thesis been to us probably by the end of this winter or this sometime cynically said, pretty much everyone in germany will be vaccinated, recovered or dead. but it's true with the highly contagious delta. very. this is very, very likely. well in australia they are into the 2nd day of the latest national coven locked down. it will last for at least 10 days. could go on until the 13th of december. people there though, and people here in germany as well, have been expressing their concerns that the actions taken by the government. haven't been the right one off because i don't believe it. all. the locked down will be over after 3 weeks. not even for us vaccinations, but it is what it is. too late too late. especially the mandatory vaccination which should have been implemented earlier. not in february. we thought what did
10:09 am
the last few months bring vaccinations were done? tests were done. distance was capital math floor and yet still the numbers rise. i i think it's not nice because it's 1st, they said that it would open up, then they built everything and then we are told that it must be closed and cannot open in slovakia and the czech republic, covert cases are also soaring. in fact, in those 2 countries from monday, extra restrictions have come into play. sparring beyond vaccinated from hotels falls head, dresses, and almost all public events as the fear is the intensive care beds will be well. they'll run out of intensive care beds due to the she and number of people, the contract coven, one team. meantime, the opposing rallies in australia is people. they take the st. supposed to support and protest against cobra, destruction authority see to expand the powers. during the pandemic with
10:10 am
a new bill to allow them to reinforce locked and vaccine mandates off the state of emergency. and next month, they had a one region saying that any body opposing the mandates in his view with an anti back you are out there in any way, shape or form campaigning against this main that you are absolutely any fax, your personal back session status is oddly relevant, and the accusations continue to fly around. we discussed with a panel a guess where the government's a failing in the fight against coven. of course i can see why the people of course draw a protesting feel. look at the background. briana, great world economic crisis since 2008 that even deeper, 2020 in that, in that crisis that was brought forward measures against corona with which are not consistent in favor of the people. but for example, in favor of big companies. and then there is a kind of a lock down, which again is more repeating the small companies, the restaurants,
10:11 am
the small cultural industry. some of the protests that we've seen over the past week, they've been a little bit agitated, but i think by far the most ferocious has been in the netherlands with the police opening fire there. is that an appropriate response? i think it really depends on the circumstances that that police officer found themselves in if offices really genuinely did feel that i liked was threatened. and again, i wasn't there and we didn't see exactly what the situation was. they don't defy, i could be justified. it does raise questions as to why offices didn't have less lethal means to combat people that are the media. and they have deemed riotous. we know far more about this disease than we did 2 years ago where they alternative to locked down some restrictions. so while the antibody levels go down within 3 months, doesn't mean that the personal immunity loss, but in fact, that the rate of transmission is not altered. so then the conceptually,
10:12 am
the idea that you quarantine or restrict in some way, those who haven't been vaccinated, most of those who have doesn't have any actually impact on the spread we've been told her, the protest is our idiots there by the dutch prime minister. and that they are the 8 agents of violence. i do think a criticism of the demonstrators is misplaced, given, is really very draconian restrictions which are at any rate illogical. government are facing recalled levels of mistrust resort. a survey published since he showed doctor the doctor. well trusted, but politicians were less trusted than any other member of the record level. the props and we've seen a very large and people not trusting the message of the government and actually not wanted to take up medically by both those confirmed britain will be sending troops to the polar battery border to help with the micro crisis there. but the u. k government's accused have failed to cope with an even bigger immigration problem
10:13 am
at home. the numbers of those tried to crossing this channel tripling since last year as get lakes on this. michelle did research, they bring us up to speed. well pretty patel. the home secretary is being accused of totally losing control of the current crisis on the english channel, plus she's being accused of double standards when it comes to how the united kingdom protects borders. you remember 3 years ago pre to patel said that she would make crossings on the english channel, an infrequent phenomenon. then later on more recently, she said she would shut off the written tale, making it on viable. but what we see in this year is up to 25000 people of cross english channel headed to the british shoals. in the last few weeks, numerous occasions over a 1000 people have made that perilous journey. and very sadly, in recent weeks, around 10 people have lost their lives making dot journey too. but both sides of the english channel, both the british and the french,
10:14 am
they simply are engaging in war of words, the tit for tat political stand off, basically blaming one another. what we're seeing now is at the french, apparently, according to the united kingdom, i'll flatter refusing to join in a joint mission to try and alleviate this crisis, not to mention that the united kingdom is forked out, nearly 50 full 1000000 pounds for this operation. so now they really want to see some results being delivered. the french simply say though, this is a british problem, but the home secretary is now suggesting that this isn't a quick, that quick fix solution. this problem will take time to fix and that there is no silver bullet. the only solution is whole scale reform of our silence system. so that the home secretary is saying that this isn't something that can be dealt with overnight. in comparison though, to the migrant crisis on the polish ballard route and border while the united kingdom got involved in that almost immediately as the crisis i was developing some
10:15 am
weeks ago, the united kingdom deployed a small, a team to assist in the operations on the polish side, what we're seeing more recently as an additional 100 troops will now help to reinforce the frontier and adding to all of this. the u. k. has now signed an agreement with potent promising to even help build a wall at a stop migrants from getting in. now this wall is expected to cost $1.00, billions locked out. that's around 300000000 pounds. it will be equipped with electronic surveillance equipment and topped with barbed wire to now that will be erected in mid 2022. now the punish administration are thanking and welcoming the british forces to help tighten insecurity. border a border is and will be tight. we will ensure poland security with the support of british troops. a company of british soldiers will be deployed to serve alongside polish soldiers as soon as possible, hopefully later this month. well,
10:16 am
both campaign is on the left and right of politics here in the united kingdom are far from happy in slamming this move on the right. they say that the british government is essentially showing a double standards because it's not really dealing with the crisis on the english channel, but almost immediately it's trying to alleviate the crisis on the polish border, plus campaigners on the left will they to are condemning the government they say the british government shouldn't be sending troops to deal with a humanitarian crisis. it's not a military one. so why send the troops and particularly pay attention to the fact that these people are helpless. refugees fleeing west in it generated conflicts? so 2 issues here, very different issues regarding asylum seekers at the united kingdom is broiled in one here at home. and one abroad one though, we're seeing more rhetoric rather than action to try and deal with it. but then if we look over to the polish border, very, very different tactics being used by the united kingdom. some say though
10:17 am
a slippery slope that those tactics could then be deployed here in the united kingdom to a go to show the dash 2. thank you very much, over one spot over immigration to a spot next over policing in new york city. pressures being placed on new york's police are so great that half wished they certainly never join the force modes. the warning from there to the city's largest police union and he claims new laws and tedious policies are punishing good cops. new york city police offices, a well past breaking point, a made diblasio and the outgoing city council as still piling on with policies that punish cops and a road public safety. the intolerable environment. and our sub standard pay has every cop looking to get out as soon as they can. his fears are shared them of 56 percent of the cities offices in a recent survey, the majority said they wish they chosen a different career, citing public distrust and disrespect and a lot these days even say they're afraid to pursue criminals for fear of being sued
10:18 am
. look at the stats this year has seen police, sir. introduce sweeping reforms in the city, curtailing the rights of authorities to use force to restrain suspects, but in wanting it back, even before the new policies officer said they were already concerned by high levels of crime. and they believe it's not gonna change any time soon. case in point against him starts to look up as you can see, almost 80 percent of respondents said that as far as they could see, there wouldn't be any improvement of the city safety at least the next 2 years. a look of has gone up even a 3 months 15 percent up since august. the crime levels will in response the m y p d said it is taking the poll results into account as it tries to make the department more effective. we spoke with one officer though, told us that cops like him have become increasingly stigmatized. every cops i speak to in the y p v just feels that everyone is against them from the public to the elected officials, to the mayor. even the higher ups b, y p, just feel like there's no right, they can ever do valuable crime,
10:19 am
fighting tools like spot question frisk were taken away. you know, legal options for people who want to sue police were expanded. you know, every, every elected official now has a platform. they want to go directly after police. this is going to be getting one safer, was going to make cops apprehensive and empower in bold in criminals. as we've seen, the poll didn't surprise me or didn't surprise while long foresman experts at all. you know, like i said, we want to have programs like defun, the police, which are directly going after cops. you have elected officials standing up and they show more empathy towards hard criminals than towards the police that actually when our in corporate criminals, you know, we have elected officials who campaign promises. we're going to actively prosecute cops, or what else could you possibly expect to happen? cuts on going to when i got the risk, their future, their, their family, their, their financial will be. so they're going to take
10:20 am
a step back and this isn't going to make anyone's, they would favor brand new in the place you on the criminal offense chief as warrant of a massive increase in u. s. strategic bomber activity around russia's borders, including particularly disturbing drills, testing nuclear weapons use survey should go making those revelations and talk to the chinese counterpart that's got a dental coat as a correspondence briefed on a there. so both paging and moscow increasingly worried about us saber rattling at all. that's right, kevin, it looks like both russia and china are ready for deeper cooperation when it comes to mutual defense. and that's because the united states, as posturing itself as a military full of both power. so, i mean, it's no secret that china isn't happy about american naval operations in the south china sea, or washington's claim that taiwan is separate from the mainland. as for russia, it looks like the u. s. is taking a more nuclear approach. let's take a listen to what the russian ministry of defense had to say. mrs. who do this month
10:21 am
during the u. s. global thunder. strategic forces exercises 10 u. s. air for strategic bombers practice options of nuclear weapons use against russia almost simultaneously from western and eastern directions. based on what was spoken about at this meeting, it looks like the u. s. military aggression is actually bringing us, is actually bringing russia and china closer together. the chinese defense minister at the meeting said that the u. s. is using the same aggressive military actions against his country as it is against his russian counterpart. we did hear from the russian defense minister again, who outlined what some of those actions entailed admissions issued lucia records a significant increase in the activity of us strategic bombing ation. in the past month, around 30 flights to the borders of the russian federation have been made, which is 2 and a half times more than in the same period last year. it's likely
10:22 am
a joining of these 2 eastern powers wasn't exactly what washington expected to result from its increased nuclear posturing. either one of them is a serious force to be reckoned with for washington, but both of them together that could be a major obstacle for u. s. foreign policy, or i don't, thanks. it brings up the spade omar. well, now for one, no worry to a developing row. this time between paris in the year was outraged. french politicians criticize a meeting between the e. u, a quality commission and a group that france brands islamist, same as the match in brussels as part of an anti discrimination campaign. but paris calls those talks abnormal artesia davinsky picks up the story. well, the european commission has found itself in the dog house with france, with french ministers blowing up over a meeting that was held last week between the commission and a muslim youth organization. several high profile ministers here in france really
10:23 am
blasting the fact that that meeting took place saying that the commission, which met with this group called famous so was meeting with an islamist association that has been attacking france 7 this he did were referring to the matter to the commission in order to find against this islamist associations that are attacking france and are infiltrating, are very institutions. it is absurd. indeed. we are now approaching the european commission. don't let anything go. why is this great cause such as well? it's done so on several levels. it's been around for about 25 years. and in the last decade or so, if the parent received 3 lots of funding directly from the european commission frenchman, this is also say has links with the muslim brotherhood. this is a group that is being designated as a terror organization by several are countries and has been banned in those countries. so france says one by meeting with families. so it's given the
10:24 am
commission is key for the to platform that it shouldn't have. and to, by financing it, it's financing womic extremism, but feminist has also caused some other upsets here in france, just in the last few weeks on its website. it said it was part of an anti discrimination campaign that was financed by the council of europe. that campaign focused on women wearing he jobs who were being discriminated against, which is a very sensitive topic here in france that cause such a theory. the french government actually protested against campaign on the plug was pulled on it now at the time feminist. so was furious that, that, that happened and said that france was the country that was exporting the moose racism. we are seeing that the french state is really behind this smear campaign, the censoring of the human rights campaign. and we are seeing that family paris is currently the capital of western prejudice. now the commission has denied that
10:25 am
fantasy has received any money, but all she has seen a written statement from 2015 shows that at least in 2012, the group received funding just over 70000 euros famous. so for it's part didn't realize that it has any links to the muslim brotherhood, and it says it's appointed the frenchman assist. i'm taking the time to essentially de, legitimize the work that he does. but it does appear that france is not about to back down on this particular topic. in fact, there is a suggestion that very soon found me, so could find itself on a list of banned organizations. here in france, pentagon is confirmed, it's bringing to an end, almost 2 decades of military presence in iraq. however, the statement leaves open the option of keeping so called consultants that an undefined roll the united states will uphold the
10:26 am
commitments it may during the july 2021 us iraq strategic dialogue, including that there will be no us forces with a calm by role by the end of the year, though, i toe so supply just to keep helping the iraqi army and government. however many fear pates of the recent afghan debacle when the u. s. abruptly abandoned the country while will not stay involved in afghanistan. militarily, our diplomatic in humanitarian work will continue. will continue to support the government of pakistan. we will keep providing assistance to the afghan national defences and security forces. ah. the u. s. invaded iraq in 2003, on the pretext of finding weapons of mass destruction. however, none of uh, being found 11 years later then president obama said more troops to fight. i still rode 2 and a half 1000 pentagon soldiers are still thought to be in the country. the pentagon's
10:27 am
withdrawing at a time particular term of for iraq mass protests of sweat, the capital baghdad this month. and the prime minister survived an assassination attempt. well, nicholas, jerry davis, author of renown book blood on our hands, which heavily criticizes us actions in iraq fears the worst now for the pentagon, pulls out the us forces. his presence in iraq is highly inflammatory. you know, after invading and conducting a brutal, murderous occupation of the country, not so long ago. and then, you know, bombing, most, joel and other cities virtually to the ground. if the u. s. does the same as what they did in afghanistan, which is to try to deal with jason by you know, the sort of post us occupation government. and if they freeze
10:28 am
$9000000000.00 of iraqi assets as they have done with the africans, foreign exchange for us, then then yes, i mean iraq face to simulation, humanitarian crisis that so we're talking about this our so much more anti though calmer and a social media we get involved in conversation to anytime i was good to hear from you today at half past the hour. my name's kevin, when you are moscow. thanks for watching today. wishing you a great rest of this tuesday, but don't go away because we go to state side next. the muse fuse hughes ah, a with and he really is no thing they cause to ride on police reports in all caps in
