ah ah, no longer of beacon of democracy and perhaps never was a major international poll reveals startling thoughts on america's image abroad, especially if most countries surveyed are about to take part in a democracy summit posted by the us. the us treasury threatens american journalists with heavy fines if they work for certain publications. one author daniela's a shares, his story with us us treasury his powers. this is a north of that of an individual freelance journalist. it was microscopic that some of them are so frightened, they are unwilling even to give interviews like this one. and the number of countries registering the new oma kron strain of coverage more than doubles to 57 since last week. the w h. i talked to
r t about the threats it poses i'm really hopeful that 1st of all, the acts vaccines will work reasonably well. and secondly, that this doesn't prove to be a much nasty virus than the earliest trained. ah, hello there with global news and international analysis, this is our t live from moscow bomb calling break. with this i was updated to happy with this. first, then over a 100 nations are going to take part in a democracy summit over the next 2 days, hosted by us president joe biden. and america is setting the bar, dividing the world into who it thinks of the good and the bad. something that china says it's got no moral right to do napalioni the theodore gotcha. the u. s. claims to be a champion of democracy and human rights, but has hidden its dark past and hypocrisy to day. the u. s. has no moral authority
to judge whether the rest of the world is democratic or not, no matter how the u. s. glosses over itself, it's true, face of seeking her gemini, under the guise democracy has long been exposed to the world. the so called summit for democracy will only go down in history as a manipulator and saboteur of democracy with a head of the gathering over 16000 people from around 16 advanced economies to power in major research on america's image abroad. and the results don't make good reading for washington. more than half of respondents don't think the united states is a good example to follow with almost a quarter saying it never has been of a more about what else is apparently incompatible with democratic values. his art is kennimore, ben. the u. s. government sponsored summit for democracy has already begun. joe biden is presenting it as his glorious call to spread freedom and human rights around the world. in the lead up to it, a national anti corruption program was announced. our real estate markets are at
risk of becoming a safe haven for criminals, clipped to crafts and others, seeking to pock corrupt profits by the planners say that money laundering the the sale of paintings is very hard to regulate. this is something the white house may be very familiar with. joe biden, son, hunter biden, has just discovered some artistic talent. his paintings have sold for half a $1000000.00, not bad for someone who just started painting, although not everyone is impressed. the 3rd painting you may recognize this name is a 100 biden. now you may think that such an exclusive, i'm that, that 100 binders and such exclusive company that he would have a background, you know, artistic training for example. but you would be wrong if you thought that. and you might think that he had some sort of apprenticeship with a world renowned artist, but you would be wrong again if you thought that, or perhaps that he has been selling his works for years. and again, unfortunately you would be wrong, this is not just $100.00 buying story. it is
a bite and family story and it's corrupt. and they're basically thumbing their noses at at, at everybody because nobody seems to want to hold them into account. hunter biden is a jack of all trades. it would seem. he got paid $50000.00 a month by bruce ma holdings, a company in ukraine, even though he had never worked before in the gas and oil sector. and some people looked into this and thought maybe his father got him the gig, and that does not exactly re give squeaky clean politics. however, papa biden has always denied any foul play. we have great confidence in our son. i am not concerned about any accusations been made against him. it's used to get to me. under biden, also owns 10 percent of the chinese investment company, known as b h r. though he now announces he intends to sell his stake. when asked to clarify the relationship gen saki, the white house spokesperson didn't have much to say. the president, son is not an employee at the federal government. so at pointing to his
representatives, joe biden just recently gave quite a bit of good publicity to protera electric bus company. now it just so happens that jennifer granholm, who he appointed as secretary of energy, is a major shareholder. given that status the up to $5000000.00 in value of investment, the secretary grunt home continues to hold and prosper. ink is position to increase in lights for personal on substantial involvement in an aggressive, wide ranging on tireless public relations campaign. to promote electric vehicles, batteries on charging infrastructure with jo biden's, democracy extravaganza kicking off. it's worth noting that recent polling data shows very few things. you asked democracy sets a good example. we decided to ask americans how they view their national leaders. do you think the american political lead is corrupt? sometimes not always. it depends on who the candidate is in which party you support
. yeah. well, they're all serving their own self interest. and then on the american interest, the american people's interest at heart. do you believe the corruption allegations against hunter biden? yes. if you read the news and you listened to see in an you'll see how biden just did everything to cover up for a son. and they were more open about it and actually investigating it and found that there was nothing, then i'd okay, i'd be fine with that. but the fact that they're hiding everything makes me more suspicious. lots of big talk from the biden administration about fighting corruption around the world. but perhaps they should take a look a little closer to home caleb bobbin r t new york. george sallie from a london based thing tank on an international the says says the sudden buzz around corruption is just another tool to control other countries. this sudden preoccupation with corruption is a way for. busy the united states to control other countries in particular control . busy that financial transactions,
and this is the piece with this democracy summit, the united states. a government is now under the control of joseph biden. and he's the department of justice. is treasury department all take the the from the president, and then i'm going to investigate from the by many will then they investigate the bike. all of this time is financial transaction and his son extreme success as an office. i remember by the announced what was the sometime in the fall . busy of 2020. i think that well, he's been told that he's under investigation by the federal government. well, time is the last and this investigation is obviously going nowhere. american journalists are being threatened with massive fines if they work for what a perceived as the wrong publications to contribute to a site called the strategic culture foundation have received stern warnings from
the us treasury. this letter was sent to daniel as our own, to michael echo both new york based journalist. it says the s c f is on a list of band organizations accused of election meddling, and that us citizens who engage in transactions with the foundation liable to find that at least $300000.00. but then you know that it's check his personal experience with us. it was a warning regarding future articles. so essentially, if i write for sci fi and gauge and any kind of transaction, which i assume means any, an exchange of money i could be had with massive fines that were completely destroy my finances. so i was taken aback. i was, you know, concerned certainly, but actually i stopped writing for s c f since the previous, you know, 4 or 5 months earlier. so i didn't feel personally threatened. but others who, who want to continue writing for the f works dreamily frightened fair. they have all stopped writing from the site because really there's just, it's, you know,
it's impossible to, to battle the us treasury in this kind of case. the us treasury is power is, is, is enormous. and that of a, of an individual freelance journalist is, you know, microscopic that some of them are so frightened, they're unwilling even to give interviews like this one. so you know, so this is what it's showing effect means they're, they're unwilling to write and they're unwilling even to talk about why they, why they're too afraid to write the threats makeup. part of a targeted sanctions campaign announced by the treasury secretary in april. treasury will target russian leaders, officials intelligence services and their proxies that attempt to interfere in the us electro process or subvert. he has democracy. this is the start of a new us campaign against russian line behavior. the u. s. government claims the strategic culture foundation is controlled by russians, a foreign intelligence agency, the s t v r, and that it's also linked to the russian foreign ministry. the foundation denies
this and calls itself a research platform on your ration global affairs where we've contacted the see to get a further response to the claims. we also waiting to hear back from the us treasury to, well let you know if we get an answer daniela's that says that a dangerous precedent has already been set. i think that the, that the at the s e s. the foundation hosts honest journalism. even though out i don't, i don't agree with much of it. this is, this is serious work by serious journalists. and that as a supporter of a free speech in a free press, i believe that readers should have access to this. ready kind of stuff and, and yet the, the u. s. government is trying to close it down. and therefore trying to stop information, which is usually at variance with official us policy. from reaching from reaching audiences, including audiences in the us, to stop journalists from writing for these kinds of websites as a new step. and i think that,
and i was surprised because because the united states, in fact has a very good track record on when it comes to a free press. i mean, in america we can say anything we want, you know, i can write that with the most outrageous things about george w bush or joe biden, and not have to worry for a moment about the search secret police crashing through my door. but now. 2 things may be changing slightly, and it doesn't the order. well. the number of countries where the due covey, the variance omicron is registered, has more than doubled in just over a week. the world health organization says the strain has been found in 57 countries so far and new policies are being introduced. the thing is that the rate of hospitalizations could now rise. we also w h o special ed boy on cobra for his perspective on the very end. people do not understand enough about this paris. nobody knows for sure how nasty
omicron is, but there's information coming through that it's, it's not too awful and this is good. but it takes time to sort these things out and we're in a kind of odds on stage at the moment where we're breaking for the results of the research. what i want to say is everybody keep doing the stuff that you know what to do, even if you're bored a bit. and sooner or later we'll find out how bad only kron is. some companies saying they're vaccines will work other saying they can a need a booster for them to be effective. all this will come clear, it usually takes about 4 weeks and i anticipate that will happen, but privately inside my. so just because you asked me, i'm really hopeful that 1st of all, the acts vaccines will work reasonably well. and secondly, that this doesn't prove to be a much nasty virus than the earliest trains. i've been involved in controlling disease outbreaks and pandemic since 2005. that's quite
a few years. the one thing i've learned try never to force people to do things through various incentives like fines or even nastier things. mandates are a last resort and the use of vaccines in children is because that is thought that vaccination will help to reduce circulation of the barrison children. but right now, the world health organization sticks with its recommendation that vaccines should be used for people who are at risk of severe illness and death. there are still an awful lot of susceptible people around even when you've got 70 st vaccination coverage than this. hi, right of, of cases is being driven by the susceptible. secondly, there does seem to be
a capacity for the borrowers to re infect people, especially if it is some months since they either had their previous infection or had their immunization. the protection doesn't last for life, it wears off, so that's i think, the reason why we're staying the spikes, even though it's high vaccination. mounting outrage in the u. k. over a supposed downing street party last christmas during tightened. pandemic restrictions has claimed its 1st scalp. the prime minister, former press secretaries resigned after a video, emerged showing her joking about the event suggesting that it did happen a burst. johnson has ordered an inquiry and was grilled in parliament on wednesday . they knew there was a party. they knew it was against the rules. they knew they couldn't admit it and they thought it was funny. prime minister has been caught right handed. why definitely an investigation right now. but just admitting it. i been repeatedly
assured, oh, i probably can big news. bad news. but there is a risk of doing a great, a grave injustice to people who, frankly, obeying the rules with the prime minister. the government spent the week telling the british public there was no party. all guidance was followed completely. millions of people now think the prime minister was taking them for fools. well, many say this could be the final nail in the coffin for forest johnson as he's now being accused of lying or even trying to cover up an alleged christmas party that happened last year. ever meant the kobe to restrictions. now if you had that from the kiss tom, at the leader of the opposition, he says the tory party have been caught red handed as multiple sources. confirm that this party did indeed happen, boris johnson. he insist that he's been assured that it didn't take place,
but if you look into the wedding of forest johnson, he didn't flat out, deny it either. now all of this comes off to number 10. officials were court joking about this, so called potty or as they phrased it, this wine and cheese business meeting has the i t v exclusive video and she recognizes i'm at home is fictional policy was a business meeting. i mean, it was not so she just now if a party did happen, well, certainly the kind of it rules were broken because at that time london was in tier 3 of the private restrictions, meaning no indoor mixing. of other households was allowed at the time. not to mention the day off to this party, christmas was cancelled, and types of restrictions were then announced. now things have really escalated throughout the day to day. in fact, the police are even considering launching an investigation into this matter,
boris johnson says he will assist with any probe that might potentially happen. but of course, this isn't the 1st time the tory party have been embroiled in such rule breaking soccer. if we look back to the heights of the pandemic dominant cummings, the prime minister's former chief 8. well, he travelled 270 miles from london to durham to visit bernard castle. then of course, mad hancock, the former, how secretary he was seen, intimately embracing a colleague, both of which have been rule breaking. and that's really the problem. that's why, as so many people are angry that those people that are making the rules think it's ok to simply break them. while the political opposition, the house of commons, they say they simply can't go on. and the prime minister's time is up downing street willfully broke the rules at the moment. the sacrifices we have all made, the prime minister has our duty, the all my right and moral choice left to him and his for his resignation.
countless children now growing up without parents while parties were held at number 10. it is an insult for everyone. he wasn't allowed to say that final. good bye. my question is very simple. ah, how does the prime minister sleep at night? well, the reality, as many people were in absolutely heart wrenching position last year, people that couldn't go and visit their dying parents simply because they wanted to stick to the rules. in the meantime, the tories were allegedly out partying of former british home office minister norman baker says the scandal will spur further distrust in the government. it was, it was a party by definition, the rules were broken. so i think he's lost all credibility. i think frankly has become a liability not just to this country but to the conservative party as well. but i
think his own party after defending him, being given aligned to parents to the media o defined they've been live the gotten passed by the prime minister. so the primary doesn't happen over over bogging uncomfortable troops. he wants to be loved. he wants to be like to provo, promises, and delivers. and there is a smell of arrogance about this government. they can do what they want to abandon the laws of the people. i think we ought to have a plan b company over this winter, and that's like increasingly likely, even today, then people are around the country going to say, why should i bother her full in the roles with the private doesn't? so the consequences for public health are potentially serious as well. without he for moscow still ahead for you this, our president biden's migration policies in the spotlight after a slumping deportations and the re introduction of a trump air of policy that led to a surge of the border in arizona. it's our next story after the break.
ah ah, is your media a reflection of reality? ah, in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? high selection for community. are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? direct? what is true? what is faith? in the world corrupted, you need to descend ah, to join us in the depths will remain in the shallows.
join me every thursday on the alex salmon show. when i was speaking the yes of the world politics, sport, business and show business. i'll see you then. i see the governor of the u. s. state of arizona's calling out the biden administration over its migration policies. he says, border patrols are overwhelmed. national guards have been called up because of what he calls biden's piecemeal policies. the biden administration's miss direction is encouraging migrant families to take a long and dangerous journey as thousands arrive at the border. local law enforcement is overwhelmed with processing. this search creates a safety and humanitarian crisis for both arizonans and migrants. deportations have
dropped by around 80 percent during the biden presidency. according to a migration control thinktank. the center for immigration studies has been analyzing data from the federal agency that handle the legal entry known as ice. a notice that the deportation of criminals also fell. a lead director of policy studies at the group behind the report explain to us what's happening with us migration were at a time of historically high, illegal immigration, and historically low enforcement when ice agents are not allowed to make arrests, as they were in the past, under the new policies that means that the serious criminals that are typically the priority for enforcement are allowed to stay in american communities instead of being sent back to their homes. and when criminals are allowed to stay here, typically they re offend and create new victims and continue to cause problems in
this country. so this is an unnecessary public safety risk and is odd damaging communities that have to absorb criminals who otherwise would be sent home. that said, the biden administration has bent on the pressure and reinstated a trumpet program where migrants to return to mexico to await their asylum decisions are the announcements of the re loans sent masses of desperate people to the us border to try and get in before it started working again and the scramble we just heard about in arizona or jessica vaughn says, more to be done to prevent an eagle crossings. this is a matter of policy. it's not a matter of resources or immigration system is badly in need of reform. we need to have measures in place that result in more enforcement, more tools for immigration enforcement, more on programs that allow state and local law enforcement agencies to help ice do
its job. and i think we need more money for enforcement directly at the border as well. more barriers to prevent people to keep, to cross illegally on a desperate attempt to save itself from a p r disaster over struggling economic policies. the biden administration has reported, they tried to reshape its media coverage. a senior c n n correspondent dropped a bombshell report claiming that senior white house officials a been briefing major american newsrooms on how they should cover the economy. the white house, not happy with the news media's coverage of the supply chain and economy has been working behind the scenes trying to reshape coverage in its favor. senior white house and admin officials have been briefing major newsrooms over the past week. as ballooning prices and supply chain problems had american consumers, the biden seems been slammed for its economic policies. and apparently, instead of fixing the economy,
the white house is resulted to mitigating the damage by trying to influence reporting. cnn itself rolled at a few optimistic headlines, openly praising the president's agenda. so i'm going as far as stating that inflation can actually be good for every day americans onto the public though it's finding that optimism a little suspicious. this sounds a lot like the start of a state propaganda rollout and the media is just browed lead meeting. they are part of it. cnn is actually bragging about this, which means c, n, n, n y, c m s, and b, c, y po will, all in attendance, ready to take orders. american journalist and commentator chadwick mole claims and see and then just pretend to give bite in a tough time. what does make it strange that it is so proudly reporting on this? it brings them trying to reaffirm their commitment to neutrality and to pretend like they've been getting the destruction that time when it's nothing compared to what they did. the last president,
cnn was one of the very powerful forces out of many that worked tirelessly to get this president elected and to trash and slander the former president into oblivion or so they caught me. don't forget that. during the 2016 election, we had all those e mail leaks that showed that the hillary clinton campaign was colluding with reporters and presenters on cnn data about what questions asked during debates and how to frame certain things. and that could be what we're sitting here with the bite administration. they show up to see and as offices, and they explain, you know, they're unhappy with the bad reporting. the for boarding president isn't that bad? i think the real situation is probably much worse. the real economic situation in this country than even seeing that is reporting you should invest more in its military development to avoid the risk of lagging behind other major powers. thus, the voting from the blocks from policy chief who says a significant gap already exists. we could have been union and
a member of state. we need to do much more to that. and we need to do much more together. right now. we cannot wait because the choice for as is simple. either we invest a lot on defense innovation, or we will become defense irrelevant. according to the european defense agency, the body responsible for military cooperation and development within the block. the a you spent a record 198000000000 euros on defense last year. even despite pandemic, hardship. however, only one percent of that was allocated to the research and development of new technologies when the goal was to spend double that amount. what's more, it 7 times less than what america spent. now, among other proposals to strengthen the ego military, there's also a document known as strategic compass, which revives the idea of
a creation of an independent european army that could be rapidly deployed to tackle any crisis on the paper. also on the lines, the necessity for a common approach to military issues and increase spending on it. now a german and pay the we spoke to says the supposed military threat is far from being the use main challenge right now from the beginning of the developing of the european treaty, there was always included the idea to have a own strong military arm that they are most of the european union now of the military thinking very much developing and the european union though they are pushing for have, having higher expenditure on military issues and to have more who are in military you spell that for a policy. the question is protected against tool. i don't think that the european union is at the moment under current stretch from,
from military terms from anybody we. ready have problems with it, but i don't see that anybody is now trying to attack the military european union. those are the main stories were across here at r t. you can get more on our website is what is more video and award winning shows on our youtube channel for now though, from calling bro moscow. thanks for watching. ah ah. back geysers financial survival, guy, housing, bravo. oh, you mean as a downside, artificial mortgage?
ruth, dr. carried away was calling to report ah well come to the alec salmon. sure. where we examine the consequences of cop 26 in glasgow. was that much too late and much, harold did summit, a success or failure and as our planet saved or to undo these times of crisis, as stimulates great art, we talked to 2 young are to be a cut and stared class whose work has been inspired by the climate emerging on the 8th of the glasgow summit, we asked you at hazel dean, professor carbon capture on storage at the university of edinburgh for his hopes
