7:00 pm
i hey, at long i thin and twitter faces a barrage of accusations that it's doing the us government's bidding. it's after the social media giant worked with a washington think tank in suspending. more than 3000 accounts from 6 countries for alleged state bank and propaganda. you case royal college of midwives apologizes for a new supposedly inclusive guidelines describing mothers as post natal people a former and h s. and nurse believes an influential lobby group is fearing the conversation is easy. yeah. to know, for example, of stem role going in with diversity offices and telling people how to reset their thinking of them based. and a landmark ruling, a woman born with
7:01 pm
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. our guests debate, the verdict because what i do now is medicine now. but in 20 years time, we may judge my actions, don't guys come to the wrong, but there is something rather bizarre about somebody saying, i mean this is a sensitive like, i wish you'd never been born. ah . oh, broadcasting live dirt from a studio in moscow. this is our to international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us. now, concerns are being raised over twitters, possible ties to the u. s. government. it's after the social media behemoth suspended more than 3000 accounts from 6 countries, including china and russia, over alleged state sponsored information operations. and twitter admits decisions
7:02 pm
on which accounts to suspend were made with the guidance of the australian strategic policy institute. a think tank sponsored by us government agencies, including the department of defense artes, dan hawkins, has been delving deeper into the institutes, activities. it's common knowledge that trusts in conventional media is falling. you know, when you ask someone where they get their news and they reply, audit, watch tv, i'll 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 draw through to help provide independent analysis to stop social media manipulation, well, anyone would have a few questions. it's not like the australian strategic policy institute hide the fact they're sponsored by the u. s. government or some of the biggest names in the
7:03 pm
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 and social media. many funded by the u. s. department of state and defense. their definition of independence, maybe malleable to say the least, an a s p, i are good at what they do,
7:04 pm
at least for their defense, industry, sponsors. the numbers say it all since the think tank was founded 20 years ago. weapons manufacturers have collected tens of billions of dollars in government contracts. prior to the coven 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 for it improves transparency register. many was so pleased with the thing. thanks. work. there 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. militarize themselves pharmacy, posing china's authoritarian control in on kong, threatening taiwan and japan on
7:05 pm
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 it really serve britton's royal college of midwives that has said, sorry for its latest supposedly inclusive guidelines which make no reference to women or mothers but only to post natal people responding to complaints the college called it in oversight the organization had taken advice from the controversial pro diversity group, stonewall a former and h s. nurse. we spoke to says the lobby group or the r 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.
7:06 pm
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. and the instructions for an h r staff on how to put newborns to bed safely. women weren't mentioned at all, referring rather to parents or cares. the guidance was supposed to be l g b t inclusive. but the response was overwhelming. overwhelmingly negative. how can you possibly rise about pregnancy and bus without mentioning women?
7:07 pm
that's deliberate, not an oversight. apparently the royal college, a midwife sized 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 so 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, 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
7:08 pm
a match for them to answer. but my point here is that the general public decimals who base midwives do not. oh, tate are actually not written sir john stanley community. it is one organization that is pushing it to 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 mothers 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 a surgeon lawlessness in the u. s. on the pandemic press, secretary gen saki, when questioned about recent mass looting said cove. it was a key factor when a huge group of criminals organizes themselves and they want to go, lou, they store a cbs nordstrom, a home depot,
7:09 pm
until the shelves are quaint. you the guy because of the hand i, i think a root cause and a lot of communities is the pandemic. yes. gen sock his remarks come amid a spike in looting in a number of states over the past month. something that others are blaming on the rise of the d fund of the police movement. ah, retired police officer, dominic is o told us why he thinks the crime search and the pandemic aren't linked just embarrassing that they're not admitting what it is. it has nothing to do with co, but it has everything to do with bell reform, and then releasing criminals right back on the street, not prosecuting properly has nothing to do. a coven defined the police movement is an emotional response for any time that the public doesn't understand when use of
7:10 pm
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 in the civil rights activists come in and claim police misconduct. so we already have a situation where emotions are high to 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 a 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, i don't have to obey the law. i can break the law because there's already this massive movement to define 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 going to act like criminals because nothing's gonna happen to us as well. as facing a crime wave us is also suffering from soaring inflation. many americans are
7:11 pm
blaming the, by the administration for that with a 5th. the respondents in a recent nationwide poll saying poor leadership is the country's top problem. that includes democrats with some quitting the party and even switching sides, breaking it all down for us with commentary as our team come up. 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 d. c. mayor. have decided to switch over to the republicans hispanic and also black eyes. i should be democratic by fault, 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. 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
7:12 pm
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 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 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 the last 63 seats?
7:13 pm
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, 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 have given this president, and is congress a chance to govern and the results so far have just not been adequate enough. we
7:14 pm
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 if things don't turn around. and i need very, very quickly where people can start to see a trajectory of going upwards in their favor. they're going to respond with their boats and the democrats could be wiped out. feel the come in the program in britain, a woman with a spinal condition winds the court case against the doctor for giving her mother poor pre pregnancy advice. 20 years ago, our guests debate, the ruling and its ramifications stay with us is our international ah, this in their interest for some financial pundents to see the value of the currency
7:15 pm
lose value. because they can gain tracks on social media saying it's somehow a good thing, but not everybody is an undertaker. not everyone is a grave robber. you know, some people are actually out there trying to be productive and productive lives. and of course, that philosophy of, oh, the currency has gone to 0 less than 0, and that's a good thing is a, is the, is the mad oh, i'm said, did i have to say lengthiest in the criteria or in germany for many years? his main compatibility was public opinion. those politicians paused as competent. we act in line with what people expect from them, but and public opinion is produced or shaped by mass media. those are shaped by journalists. most german journalists are sympathizes of the social democrats of the green. therefore, as long as it, cuz you green and social democratic policy projects, you pass is
7:16 pm
a competent leader. ah, welcome back. this is our to international. now and investigation has been launched by us central command into a recent drone attack and syria, which may have resulted in civilian casualties. the strike was said to have been targeting a senior al qaeda leader and planner. we uphold the loss of innocent life and 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 us defense secretary also launched a new probe into an air strike and syria back in 2019, which killed dozens of women and children. meanwhile,
7:17 pm
21 humanitarian organizations have published an open letter calling for an urgent rethink of pentagon policy. we at g t. r. basil can fall and reckon with the civilian hum of the last 20 years and commit to finally implementing structural changes to prioritize 7 and protection and accountability for civilian hom. alright, in september a decade, long cost of war, project by brown university released its findings with part of the study focusing on the death toll in serious since 2014, it claims the u. s. military was responsible for more than 95000 civilian deaths with 75 journalists and more than 200 humanitarian workers also killed. peace activist can stone believes 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 battle so far has been not 95000,
7:18 pm
but closer 260-0000. basically, us drone 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 . s. media as quote presidential. so in other words, when you as president are acting in a heavy handed manner against p, mainly people of color in foreign countries, they look good in the media. the u. s. attacks, countries that can't fight back small in the countries. let's take a swing around the globe to look at some other stories making headline, some harrowing video. at least one person has been killed and dozens injured. after a volcano erupted on the indonesian island of java on saturday, media report to say villages in the vicinity of the blast became covered in debris
7:19 pm
and thick smoke obscured the sun, leaving them in the darkness. several 100 people have reportedly been moved to shelters as well. thousands of protesters in paris demonstrated against code restrictions on saturday, riot gear, cloud, police tailed in march and mass with anti government sentiment rising. amid the introduction of health passes and mandatory masks in all indoor settings, and the only total solar eclipse of 2021, turned to day to night for 2 minutes in antarctica of all places on saturday. this is the 1st time the rare phenomenon has only been visible in antarctica and is the 1st total solar eclipse to occur there since 2003. a young woman with a spinal defect has successfully sued her mother's doctor for giving the parent bad
7:20 pm
advice. 20 years ago before her pregnancy and a landmark ruling, the u. k. high court agreed that the medics failure to tell her to take supplements amounted to negligence. evie tombs overcame her condition to become a para show jumping star, though she has to spend days at a 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 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. of doctrine question denies the allegation, saying that he provided all necessary instructions. we discussed what precedent the ruling sets with our guests. john gaunt, radio host and columnist and doctor dean agate, the gp. this changes we're talking about was 20 years ago and the 2001 i think it
7:21 pm
was. and around that sort of time we too would probably have been giving advice off . well, if your diet is rich and go to cast it, keep 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. can you really bring fun? you can because it's hot, 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 that you're going to take a long time in the future to very clearly document advice we give. and more importantly, actually, the advice that we don't get is going to put a significant down to put on time. one of the other big challenges that often documentation is about how you're judged. because of course, what i do now is medicine. now in 20 years time, we may judge my actions and the doctor has completely wrong because as time progresses and we learn more, our practices progress. one of my worries will be for doctors that they would on
7:22 pm
the side of caution now and perhaps 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, same details of medicine, that's our job to teach them to bring them on that journey to get them on boats. and we can make decisions to get to treat the problem. 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 they're responsible for prescribing, but also responsible for telling you how to live healthily and if you don't have healthy, that's the doctors all. and that's an impossible situation to doctors to work it. we do need perhaps now in the light this case, we need to put some safety guidelines in there goes to the patient and for the
7:23 pm
doctor. i mean, i do find it incredible that 20 years after this, the doctor is in this position with his whole life ruined by 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. david at the moment. for example, if i was to give 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 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 asked you to or you didn't do the things that i asked you to. nonetheless, i will have to go through the process of coal. i just thing 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 you would never been born well,
7:24 pm
it's that time of year. many people i know are spending the day decorating and get ready for guests. but the festive season has not gotten off to the greatest of starts in the british capital. that's because it's showcase christmas tree inter fougere square isn't quite up to its usual standard. every year. it's gifted to the city of norway weaving some to ponder whether london's done something to upset the nordic nation. ah. but trafalgar square, christmas tree got a trim from boris johnson's baba. all we had to go with no, we know the trafalgar square. christmas tree has arrived
7:25 pm
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 distancing. remember to stay safe this christmas and wear a face covering on public transport and while inside shops there have it. that's news for me. i'll be back in about 34 and a half minutes with another full and fresh look to news. stay with us, like international ah
7:26 pm
ah. is it on you being a yes or no? no, no, but they didn't. didn't valuable. mm hm . that's been happening by high middle now i own my head up my lap and i had a knuckle. but my love bob again thought no along after a bit a well, i mean a relation story bit. i mean, tonia locked in it and i
7:27 pm
ah hello, i max kaiser. this is the kaiser report. let's get right into it. great. well max, you know what jamie diamond has no intrinsic value? well, that's a response to his tweet tier jamie diamond bitcoin has no intrinsic value. bitcoin says, cry harder jamie diamond. but of course max, there is no such thing as intrinsic value. all value is subjective and derived from human consciousness would say col, manga right, right. the fact that the coin has no intrinsic value or utility value is one of his greatest attributes. one of his greatest features. why is that? because any time like a commodity would have some intrinsic value, let's say with silver or some of the electronics applications used for gold. that
7:28 pm
means that part of the community brings in what they believe to be its value industrial value. and that would have an impact on the overall price discovery. and that would mean that it's not perfect money because some of those participating in that market have different expectations about its use case. then those who are looking at it for the purpose of storing wealth with bitcoin because it has no utility value and no intrinsic value. it's perfect money. it's only uses as a monitoring a premium is 100 percent versus gold, which is maybe 8085 percent solver, maybe 45 percent calories shells close to 0. new us $1.00. they have the u. s. dollars, no monetary premium whatsoever. it's literally worthless. so this is jamie diamond is a guy who's a bureaucrat, he's a, he's a button pusher, she's
7:29 pm
a bean counter. he's from the back office of the making. industry has no creativity . he's never sold anything in his life. he is a complete idiot. well, of course the u. s. dollar, as paul craig, mom pointed out his back. my men with guns and violence does have some power in which is value. so it's certainly they do have a monopoly on force around the world that they can apply almost anywhere on earth without any sort of consequence. so there is that, but in terms of what jamie diamond said here was an interest, a response from gobber go back suits with a van act that e t fund. he said the monetary value though, looks over a trillion dollars exactly what you're saying. so, okay, there's no intrinsic value, but there is monetary value, which is the trillion dollars market kat, right? the because it's perfect money in that it has no utility value to order intrinsic value to interfere with price discovery. it's d monetizing gold, silver and the dollar. that's why gold is people are selling their gold to buy
7:30 pm
bitcoin because gold is a less perfect in terms of being a perfect store value them bitcoin. and so it's being ah, that a d monetized. and that's what we're seeing happening and the numbers speak for themselves. so in terms of having no intrinsic value, let's look at the definition of spoof i. k. s spoof can be either a noun or a verb. i'll read both them in this context to what we're going to talk about. it's actually we're using as a verb, but i'll read you what google throws up in terms of define spoof noun, a humorous imitation of something. typically a film or a particular genre, film in which its characteristics features are exaggerated for comic effect to a trick played on someone as a joke. so harry turned to the verb one, imitate something while exaggerating its characteristic features for comic effect. 2 hopes or trick. so pokes trick, imitate it's a trick or an imitation
7:31 pm
a hoax. so jamie diamond, he says.
