ah ah, twitter faces a barrage of accusations that it's doing the us government's bidding. it's after the social media giant work with a washington think tank in suspending. more than 3000 accounts from 6 countries for a lead state by propaganda. also coming off on the program, the u. k. royal college of midwives apologizes for news supposedly inclusive guidelines describing mothers of postnatal people. a former n h s nurse believes an influential lobby group is steering that conversation is easy yet to now the example of stonewall going in with diversity offices and telling people how to reset or thinking of that member. and in

a landmark ruling, a woman born with a spinal defect wins her case against the doctor who 20 years ago is said to have failed to advise her mother properly about having children or guests that faith the verdict. because what i do now is medicine now in 20 years time, we may judge my actions and the doctor has completely wrong. but there is something rather bizarre about somebody saying, i mean this is a sensitive like, i wish i would never been born ah, oh, from moscow to the world. this is our t international. my name's eden o'neill. let's get into our top story. concerns are being raised or where twitter is possible ties to the u. s. government. it's after the social media behemoth suspended more than $3000.00. that comes from 6 countries,
5:02 pm
including russia, china, over a ledge, state sponsored information operations. twitter admits decisions on which accounts to suspend were made with the guidance of the australian strategic policy institute . that's a think tank sponsored by u. s. government agencies, including the department of defense ortiz, daniel hawkins, has been delving deeper into the institutes, activities. it's common knowledge. the trust in conventional media is falling. you know, when you ask someone where they get their news on late reply, i don't watch tv. do my own research or get money's off social media. that's fair enough. at least with normal news, you tend to know who's sponsoring it, be it's a government or corporation. and you can make your own conclusions. but when you see who's behind an organization claiming to be independent and non partisan draft are in to help provide independent analysis to stop social media manipulation. world, anyone would have
5:03 pm
a few questions. it's not like the australian strategic policy institute hide the fact there, sponsored by the u. s. government or some of the biggest names in the military. industrial complex. the long list is there for all to see is just when so much funding comes from the sources. one does wonder just how independent and balanced they can be. even former australian officials have concerns about the things thanks output echoed by some current lawmakers. surely it's fair to subject aspect funding arrangements to scrutiny espy receives core funding of $4000000000.00 from the department of defense. again, the thing thank makes no secret of its anti china stance and the list of works on their website. in fact, china is a key target of the organizations works from human rights in she began to chinese tech systems influence projects or this information in social media. many funded by the u. s. department of state and defense. their definition of independence may be
5:04 pm
malleable to say the least. an a s p. i are good at what they do, at least for their defense, industry, sponsors. the numbers say it all since the thing thank was founded 20 years ago. weapons manufacturers have collected tens of billions of dollars in government contracts prior to the cobit pandemic. the organization hosted dozens of events, some bringing together key players in defense and politics. providing the opportunity for closed door discussions with government departments and agencies. the s p i is so heavily involved with foreign governments and political organizations. it's even registered with the australian governments. forward importance. transparency register. many were so pleased with the think tanks work. their funding to the organization has grown significantly year on year, as have their funds from sponsorship and commercial revenue under the direction of executive director, peter jennings, who is himself clear where the blame for increasing tensions lies. militarized
5:05 pm
themselves. pharmacy posed in china's authoritarian control in hong kong, threatening taiwan and japan on a daily basis. china is the strategic problem in the region and back to the point. the thing thank is now partnered with the social media joint, helping to decide and coordinate what information users have access to on what is sensitive so much for independent analysis and serving the public conversation. is little wonder that some question whose interests does this really serve? britton's royal college of midwives has said, sorry for its latest supposedly inclusive guidelines which make no reference to women or mothers, but only to postnatal people responding to complaints the college called it an oversight. the organization has taken advice from the controversial pro diversity group, stonewall a for
5:06 pm
n h s. nurse we spoke. do says the lobby group or they are c, m itself has no right to tell midwives what to think. well, it's perfectly obvious why they apologize because of the instantaneous backlash. health services sat her to be a safe environment for this normal process is natural processes to happen. it is not to her college. if midwives role to tell them, make wives how to think. and i'm afraid that this is yet another example of stonewall going in with diversity offices and telling people how to reset the thinking of that members. the royal college of midwives withdrew the gender neutral guidance after an online backlash in the instructions for an ha stuff and how to put newborns to bed safely. women weren't mentioned at all, referring rather to parents and curs. the guidance was supposed to be l g
5:07 pm
b to inclusive, but the response was overwhelmingly negative. how can you possibly rise about pregnancy and bus without mentioning women? that's deliberate, not an oversight. apparently the royal college and midwife says midwives need to call mothers postnatal people, not mothers, all women. so to all you ladies out there, you're a postnatal person, not a mother. i. right. how did the royal college of midwives forget about women? they had the sole reason you even exist. nurse, rebecca butler again says that neither the general public or transgender people support the idea. people don't want to replace the word series, a very, very vocal minority, and a very effective act to this group in stone. whoa. who want to rewrite the rules by which we live? i don't know who they think they're appealing to,
5:08 pm
because the person in front of the midwife is a biological woman. why the world college of midwives has chosen to adopt policies advocated by stonewall, is a match for them to answer. but my point here is that the general public decimals based midwives do not hold kate are actually neither does the transgender community . it is one organization that is pushing it, see gender so hard, and he's getting it very, very badly. a mother is a mother and the role of the midwife is to ensure the mother's safety and the baby safety. and that is the end of that role. they should not be involving themselves in this. so to ridiculous political posturing. the white house is blaming us surge in lawlessness in the u. s. on the pandemic press. secretary gen saki when question about recent math. saluting said cove. it was
5:09 pm
a key factor when a huge group of criminals organized themselves and they want to go, lou, they store a cbs nordstrom, a home depot, until the shelves are quaint. you think because of the hand i, i think a root cause and a lot of community is, is the pandemic. yes. gen sanchez remarks come amid a spike in lute saying, in a number of states over the past month, something that others are blaming on the rise of the de fun, the police movement ah a retired police officer. dominic is o told us why he thinks the crime serge on the pandemic,
5:10 pm
aren't linked just embarrassing that they're not admitting what it is. it has nothing to do a co, but it hasn't been do with bell reform. and them releasing criminals right back on the street, not prosecuting properly has nothing to do, come to defend the police movement is an emotional response for any time that that the public doesn't understand when use of force is needed, right? you have unarmed either black americans or whatever the case is shot by police in and before an investigation is done. the civil rights activists come in and claim police misconduct. so we already have a situation where emotions are high. the voter thinks the emotional voter thinks is that who this is defining the police, which means we're going to get rid of the cops on our streets. and then let's replace them with the social workers or other people who are better trained and equipped to deal with emotional issues on the street. when you start to have that mindset, well then you're, you're looking at police negatively. so already the immoral, the criminal who are out there, feel that they've got the backing of the public. well,
5:11 pm
i don't have to obey the law. i can break the law because there's already this massive movement to defend the police, which means they're going to side with me. it's a mindset of it's okay for us to do this. and we're gonna act like criminals because nothing's gonna happen to us as well as facing a crime wave. the u. s. is also suffering from soaring inflation. many americans are blaming the biden administration for us with a fist of respondents in a recent nationwide, pulsing per leadership is the country's top problem. bob includes democrats with some quitting the party and even switching sides, breaking it all done for us, ortiz kill, and apparently it's not only working families throughout america who are disappointed by the biden administration's handling of several crises. it's also members of biden's own democratic party, some like the former spokesperson for the washington dc mayor have decided to switch over to the republicans in hispanic and also black eyes. i should be
5:12 pm
democrat by default, but i'm going against their narrative and i feel like right now, everything is crumbling for the democrats biden is completely destroying the economy right now and people can feel it in. so that's what's happening in washington dc. now washington, d. c is a city that is pretty solidly in the democratic camp. democrats sometimes even get 90 percent of the vote in elections. no wonder democrats as far away as texas are switching sides. friends, something it's happening in south texas, and many of us are waking up to the fact that the values of those in washington d. c. on not our values, not the values of most texans, the ideology of to funding the police of destroying the oil and gas industry, and the chaos. our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in south texas. in addition to the recent shifts, 19 democrats are set to leave the house of representatives in 2022. that includes 3
5:13 pm
committee chair. some are retiring or seeking another office. republicans only need to gain 5 more seeds in the upcoming mid term vote in order to re take control of the house of representatives. and many observers say their chances of doing so are pretty good. some are comparing it to the republican sweep 10 years ago. how's democrats have more retirements than they did in 2010 when they lost 63 seats? it's not only the party that's losing people. kamala harris, the vice president of joe biden, is watching her team implode as well. her spokesperson and her communications director have both decided to quit with reports indicating that there are 2 more aids who have one foot out. the door reports are leaking out about strife between her office and the biden team, and the backdrop to all of this is the joe biden's approval ratings. keep going down. the mid terms are less than a year away and the democratic party seems to be crashing and burning. it appears that some in light of the circumstances have decided to jump out of a sinking ship,
5:14 pm
which might be causing the democrats even more trouble. the democrats are not delivery and clean and simple, and they're specifically not delivering to the people who are responsible for putting them in power, namely indigenous black, brown, asian, and poor white people. they had given his president and his congress a chance to govern, and the results so far have just not been adequate enough. we have not seen a protection of voting rights. we have not seen police reform. we have not seen action on climate change. i think that people are rightfully letting this administration know based on the approval ratings that more needs to be done and very, very quickly. or there will be electoral consequences. any other things? i turn around and i did very, very quickly where people can start to see the trajectory of it going upwards in their favor. they're going to respond with their boats and the democrats could be wiped out ahead on the program. in britain, a woman with
5:15 pm
a spinal condition wins a court case against the doctor for giving her mother per or pre pregnancy advice 20 years ago or a guests that bait the ruling and it's ramifications. ah, oh is your media a reflection of reality? in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? hi, selection whole community. are you going the right way or are you being led to somewhere direct? what is true? what is great in the world corrupted. you need to descend
5:16 pm
ah, join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. ah ah. so what we got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is on offense. very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very political time. time to sit down and talk ah, hello again. an investigation has been launched by us central command into a recent drone attack in syria, which may have resulted in civilian casualties. the strike was said to have been targeting a senior al qaeda leader unplugged her. we uphold the loss of innocent life and
5:17 pm
take all possible measures to prevent them. the possibility of a civilian casualty was immediately self reported to us central command. we are initiating a full investigation of the allegations and will release the results when appropriate . in a separate development, the u. s. defense secretary also launched the new probe into an earth strike in syria back in 2019, which killed dozens of women and children. meanwhile, 21 humanitarian organizations have published an open letter calling for an urgent re think of pentagon policy. we add you to robustly account for and reckon with the civilian hum of the last 20 years and commit to finally implementing structural changes to prioritize civil and protection and accountability for civilian hom. it should also be noted in september a decade long course of war. a project by brown university released its fundings with part of this study focusing on the death toll in syria. since 2014,
5:18 pm
it claims the u. s. military was responsible for more than 95000 civilian debts with 75 journalists on more than 200 humanitarian workers also killed. peace activists. kennestone believes the actual number of civilian lives lost is even higher. the u. s. does not care about civilian deaths. they are merely collateral damage in its foreign policy, aims to achieve hedge ammonia in the middle east, and in fact, the entire world death toll so far has been not 95000, but closer 260-0000. basically, u. s. jerome strikes and foreign countries are flagrantly illegal. they, they are at extra legal assassinations that take place in countries where the government does not approve of the u. s. operating their u. s. president's loud your own strikes. it makes them appear in the words of the u
5:19 pm
. s, media as quote presidential. so in other words, when you as presidents are acting in a heavy handed manner against p, mainly people of color in foreign countries, they look good in the media. the us attacks countries that can't fight back small in the countries. a young woman with a spinal defect has successfully sued her mother's doctor for giving the parent bob advice 20 years ago before her pregnancy. in a lunmark ruling, la you, case, high court agreed that the medics failure to tell her to take supplements amounted to negligence. evie tunes overcame her condition to become a parra show, jumping star, though she has to spend days of the time connected to tubes. the judge said that could have been avoided if her mother had been recommended to take folic acid, both before and during her pregnancy. in accordance with official guidance provided
5:20 pm
with the correct recommended advice she would have delayed attempts to conceive in the circumstances there would have been a later conception which would have resulted in a normal healthy child. the doctor in question denies. he allocation, seeing, he provided all necessary instructions. we discussed what precedent the ruling sets with our guest john goetz, l radio host and columnist in the u. k. on dr. dean agates at gp. this taste we're talking about was 20 years ago and the 2001 i think it was and around so to time we 2 would probably have been giving advice of well if your diet is rich and thought of kathy, keep that up, keep doing it. don't necessarily mean to supplement. so again, it's really hard to judge what happened back in 2001 based on the standards we have today, come you really bring what you can because it's up. but can you bring the case 20 years after? so the poor afford, i mean this isn't for linda mind where somebody was given, you know, a tablet, it isn't that kind of situation. this scenario shows actually going to take
5:21 pm
a long time in the future to very clearly document. the advice we give, and more importantly, actually the advice that we don't get. so it's kind of a significant plan to put on time one of the, the big challenges that often documentation. it's about how you're judged because of course, what i do now is medicine. now in 20 years time, we may judge my actions as a doctor has completely wrong because as time progresses and we learn more, our practice is progress. one of my worries would be for doctors that they would on the side of caution now and perhaps stop recommending for other both difficulties. maybe abortion i'm thinking particularly of down's syndrome babies when we do know that they, these people can go on to lead. very successful lives as well, so have to be aligned somewhere, doesn't matter because of course we recognize that and patients name certain details of medicine. it's our job to teach them. busy to bring them on that journey to get them on board so that we can make decisions to get that to treat the problem
5:22 pm
. but if we're saying and all that common sense stuff to falls into the lap of the doctor to have to deal with and say, well, come on, the doctors responsibility to tell you how to live your life. what to do. not only are they responsible for prescribing, but also responsible for telling you how to live healthily and if you don't have healthy doctors all. and that's an impossible situation to doctors to work it. we do need perhaps now in the light of this we need to put some safety guidelines in that goes to the patient and for the doctor, i mean, i do find it incredible that 20 years after this, the doctor is in this position with his whole life ruined, and i still of immense sympathy, obviously for a lady involved as well. you know what, we're already in that position of jeopardy because that's exactly the situation we dr. moment. for example, if i was to get the patients and advice today. and the patient doesn't necessarily follow that advice, doesn't necessarily come back to see me again, like i asked him to do. and then sadly they developed
5:23 pm
a severe illness and they come back and see me and say, well, the doctor found it. my argument back would be, well, you didn't come back to me like ask you to or you didn't do the things that i asked you to. nonetheless, i will have to go through the process of call. i just think this is a really tragic case. and i wish you had never come to court. i wish the evie had got the help and the assistance she needs. but there is something rather bizarre about somebody saying, and i mean this in a sensitive way. i wish i had never been born. okay, wrapping up this se news r and r t. the festive season hasn't gotten off to the greatest of starts in the british capital. that's because it's showcase christmas tree. and trafalgar square isn't quite up to its usual standard every year. it's gifted to the city by norway, leaving some to ponder whether london's done something to upset the nordic nation. ah
5:24 pm
ah, ah, but trafalgar square, christmas tree, got a trim from forest johnson's baba. are we at all with? no, we know. the trafalgar square, christmas tree has arrived with the following media includes potentially sensitive content. sometimes i wonder if no way is trolling us a bit when they choose which tree to give us full trafalgar square. i would like everyone to know that half of my branches are not missing their social
5:25 pm
distancing. remember to stay safe this christmas and where a face covering on public transport and while inside shops. ah, that is how the news is shipping up on this the 1st weekend of december. stay close though, as more great programs get going and moments i'm, you know, in a little bye for now. back. kaiser's financial survival guide. housing, bravo. oh, you mean the downside? artificially little mortgage. i don't get carried away. watch guys to report join me every thursday on the alex salmon. sure. but i'll be speaking to guess what? the world politics sport business. i'm show business. i'll see you then.
5:26 pm
ah, i mean, ah, [000:00:00;00] with lam option retention you're watching going on the ground amid global fee is over. a new coven variant on the current coming up in the show and advise it to the best government that reported on the corner of the world health organization. and whether the next variant will not to be reported for fear of nato nation sanction. and at the end of day's coming, we investigate why today 35000 people on average will have converted to
5:27 pm
a form of christianity that has turned the globe into a spiritual battlefield and empowered the rise of world leaders from trump to both scenarios. all of them were coming up in today's going underground as fast as the u . k. government introduces a fresh wave of coven measures just ahead of christmas. after a new variant concern on chrome was detected in south africa. let's go straight to jana's, work to speak to professor berry shoe lee, chair of south africa's ministerial advisory committee, on covey. 19 vaccines. thank you so much. a professorship for coming on. we're hearing here of scottish cases that preceded the announcement from south africa. let alone cases without any have known travel in london. we don't want to be speculating on where the cobra is going to follow the usual virus path of that more transmission the less and less illness. but what is the situation there? is that basically it high transmission less mo, mild disease? yeah, i think i have to push everything rio grande. so is that, is there any days? you know, you're busy studying this. first of all, this is
5:28 pm
a brand new bars. now said brand new, it's unrelated to any of the previous. so variances are completely different evolutionary tree. it's not a, an offshoot to one of the pre is the ruins this wanting know thing has got a large number of mutants reasons that we've and so in that we've never seen before . so even in the critical spike protein, that's the protein that the virus needs to establish in fiction, there over 30 mutations and some brand new. we never, never seen for some of these mutations do govern things like choice visibility. i was infectiousness, as well as vaccine landscape. in other words, that the individuals who vaccinate may still get the infection that's at the molecular level in terms of the clinical level, in terms of evasion of the school is early times. we're getting some kind of in clean, but i must place this an inkling rather than data driven, that it is more transmissible because it's displayed very rapidly. 3 high
5:29 pm
reproductive number about 2.32.5. and also reaching a large number of cases can't give you a quantitative thing because it is developing the old time of individuals that are the 40 vaccinated that are picked up the infection. but for she, these have been mild cases in terms of our hospital, he's a mile mile cases and i want to get a vaccination in a 2nd. why we, we heard from good tang province from the national institute of communicable diseases. the hospitalisation had gone up hundreds of percent, 330 percent in the days after. i'm not sure you know that's changing all the time, but we say mild and yet hospitalisation as increase and of course w h o is warned against the use of the word mild. yeah, now i'm let me qualify mild of those that have had a breakthrough that have been vaccinated and it has been about a year at about a doubling of hospital admissions in the counting province. not nationally been there will be on j,
5:30 pm
as in the starting province. but still pretty kind of low we're, i think with the mind about 700 admissions as a guys, well when we in that weighs about 7000 or more. so it's really, sheila and the great majority of those have been unvaccinated or any partially vaccinated. so our relation, we do know that correlation, amaya, iraq, the vaccine predicts against severe disease, morgan, and fiction. but how the army crohn's guy knew, express itself. i think we still need to wait to store too early. you know, we only had this of ours. what about a recruiting, dodge ciriani, accumulating data? now let's just talk about incentives. since we can't really took a day to get there just isn't we going to wait another week? maybe for the lab results. can all developing nations do you think now expect to be hit by de facto travel? boycott economic warfare, if they identify
