or die, so humans effectively or committing mass, suicide, or species, has become extinct. no longer a beacon of democracy and perhaps never was a major international poll reveals startling thoughts on america's image abroad, especially as most countries surveyed are about to take part in a democracy summit hosted by the u. s. u. s. treasury threatens american journalists with hefty fines. if they work for certain publications, one author daniela's air shares his story with us us treasury powers. it was enormous that that of a, of an individual freelance journalist is always microscopic. but some of them are so frightened or unwilling to even to give interviews like this one. and the number of countries registering the new omicron strain of covert more than doubles to 57 since last week. the w h o talks to,
3:01 am
i'll tell you about the threats it poses. i'm really hopeful that 1st of all, the act vaccines will work reasonably well. and secondly, that this doesn't prove to be a much nastier barris than the earliest strengths. ah, although with global use and international reaction, this is our t live from moscow on calling bright with this ours update. 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 bob, 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. may finally get the food, awkward out the u. s. claims to be a champion of democracy in human rights, but has hidden it's 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,
3:02 am
no matter how the us glosses over itself, it's true. face of seeking, had gemini, under the guise democracy, has long been exposed to the world. the so called summit for democracy. well, let me go down in history as a manipulator and saboteur of democracy. ahead of the gathering over 16000 people from around 16 advanced economies to party to 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 say it never has been for more about what else is apparently incompatible with democratic values. his ortiz kayden open. 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,
3:03 am
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's, 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 on 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
3:04 am
noses 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, vibrant, ma holdings, a company and 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 the 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 i'd point you to his representatives. joe biden just recently gave quite
3:05 am
a bit of good publicity to broader 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 him. prosser inc, his position to increase in lights for personal, unsubstantial involvement in an aggressive, wide ranging untie this public relation 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. us 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. huge support. yeah. well, they're all serving their own self interest. and then on the american interest,
3:06 am
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. if 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, so i'm really from a london base thing tank on international fed says the southern 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. 1 financial transactions, and this is the piece with this democracy summit,
3:07 am
the united states. a government is now under the control, joseph biden. and he's the department of justice is treasury department will take the the from the president and then other investigate from the by many will then they investigate the bike. all of this time. he's financial transaction and his son, extreme success as an office. i remember buying 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 to being threatened with massive fines if they work for the perceived as the wrong publications. to contributors to a side called the strategic culture foundation have received mornings from the us treasury. this letter was sent to daniel liz and michael of eco,
3:08 am
both new york based journalist. it says c. s. c, f is on a list of band organizations accused of election meddling, and the u. s. citizens who engage in transactions with the foundation a liable to find of at least $300000.00. now, daniel is as being sharing his personal experience with 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 had stopped writing for the yes since the previous, you know, of 4 or 5 months earlier. so i didn't feel personally threatened. but others who, who want to continue writing for s t f works dreamily frightened fair. they have all stopped writing for the site because really, there's just, it doesn't, you know, it's impossible to,
3:09 am
to battle the us treasury in this kind of case. the u. s. treasury's power is, is enormous. and that of a, of an individual freelance journalist is always microscopic. but 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 with threats may come 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 so bertie has democracy. this is the start of a new u. s. campaign against russian malign behavior. the u. s. government claims the strategic culture foundation is controlled by russians, foreign intelligence agency, the f, b r, and then it's also linked to the russian foreign ministry. the foundation denies this though, and calls itself a research platform on the ration global affairs. we've contacted the cf to get
3:10 am
a further response to these claims, and we're also waiting to hear back from the us treasury to we'll let you know if we get an answer. meantime, daniela's us as a dangerous precedent has already been set. i think that the that the at the s c f, the foundation hosts honest journalism even though out i don't, don't agree with much of it. this is, this is serious work by serious. ready journalists, and that is a supporter of a free speech and a free press. i believe that readers should have access to this kind of stuff. and, and yet if 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
3:11 am
a very good track record on when it comes to a free press. i mean, in america, we could say anything we want, you know, i can write the most outrageous things about george w bush or joe biden and not have to worry for a moment about a, the search secret police crashing through my door. but now things may be changing slightly, and it doesn't the order. well. the number of countries where the due coven variance, omicron is registered, has more than doubled in just over a week. the world health organization says the strains being found in $57.00 countries so far, and new policies are being introduced overseas, that the rate of hospitalizations could now rise. we are the w h o special envoy uncovered for his perspective on the varian. people do not understand enough about this paris. nobody knows for sure how nasty ami chrome is,
3:12 am
but there's information coming through that it's, it's not too awful. ready 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 cronies. some companies saying their back scenes 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 panics. since 2005, that's quite
3:13 am
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 got 70 percent vaccination coverage. and this high right of, of cases you being driven by the susceptible. secondly, there does seem to be
3:14 am
a capacity for the borrower to re impact 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 doing the spikes, even though it's high vaccination. here without saying for moscow still ahead for you this, our president biden's migration policies are in the spotlight after a slump. and people taishan and 3 introduction of the trump era policy that led to a search at the border in arizona. it's our next story after this. ah oh, driven by dream shaped bankers and those with
3:15 am
awe dares sinks. we dare to ask ah ah, ah
3:16 am
ah, hello again. the governor of the us state of arizona is calling out the biden administration over it's migration policies. he says, border patrols or overwhelmed national guards have been cold up because of what he calls biden's. piecemeal policies to bind in administrations 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 per cent during the biden presidency. according to a migration control thinktank. the center for immigration studies has been analyzing data from the federal agency that handles the legal entry known as ice a. notice that the deportation of criminals also fell. though the director of policy studies of the group behind the report explained to us what's happening with
3:17 am
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 i damaging communities that have to absorb criminals who otherwise would be sent home? oh, even so, the biden administration has been under pressure and reinstated a trump era program where migrants to return to mexico to await the recital.
3:18 am
decisions of the announcement of the re loans sent masses of desperate people to the u. s. border to try and get in before that we'll started working again and the scramble we heard about in arizona. jessica vaughn says more should be done to prevent illegal 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 a 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 a, to cross illegally on a desperate attempt to save itself from a p r disaster of a struggling economic policies. the biden administration has reportedly tried to
3:19 am
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 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. i was ballooning prices and supply chain problems had american consumers the bite and team has been slammed over many of its economic policies. but apparently, instead of fixing the economy, the white house is result. it's a mitigating the damage done by trying to influence reporting by 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. much of the public though, is finding that optimism a little suspicious. this sounds a lot like the start of est propaganda rollout, and the media is just browed lead meeting. they are part of it. cnn is actually
3:20 am
bragging about this, which means c, n, n, n y c m s, n, b, c, y, po, we're all in attendance ready to take orders. american journalist and commentator chadwick mole claims that cnn just pretends to give bite and a tough time. what does make it strange is that it is so proudly reported on this? i have written them trying to reaffirm their commitment to neutrality and to pretend like they'd been getting the decision to talk 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 email leaks that showed that the hillary clinton campaign was colluding with reporters and presenters on cnn about what questions to ask during
3:21 am
debates and how to frame certain things. and that could be what we're sitting here with the, by the administration. they show up to see an as offices and they explain, you know, they're unhappy with the bad reporting. the for boarding 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 boarding from the blocks foreign policy chief who says a significant gap already exists. we could have been union and a member to state. we need to do much more to that. and we need to do much more together. right now we cannot wait because they charge for a symbol. either we invest a lot in defense innovation or we will become defense irrelevant
3:22 am
recording to the european defense agency, which is the body responsible for military cooperation and development within the block. the e. you spend a record 198000000000 euros on defense last year. and 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 about amount, what's more, it's 7 times less than what america spent. among other proposals to strengthen the military. there's also a document known as a strategic compass which revives the idea of the creation of an independent european army that can be rapidly deployed to tackle any crisis of the paper also underlines the necessity of a common approach to mandatory issues and increase spending on it the german m p we spoke to says the supposed military threat is far from being the use main challenge right now. beginning of the developing of the european treaty,
3:23 am
there was always included the idea to have a own strong military arm that say are most of the european union now of the military thinking it's very much developing and the european union. and though they are pushing for have, having higher expenditure on military issues and to have more who are in military capacities 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 mid to 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. everything from workplace robots to spy gadgets sold, developed by young science enthusiasts and russia. the world and are things he goes
3:24 am
down off, have been getting a glimpse of the future. so we are at a young scientists, congress just essentially very upscale version of a science. we all know and some of us. and so we've come here to see what some of the young visionaries have brought to this show. ah, okay, so this start hair shows off all sorts of, exoskeletons from fallen, terminate to like, suits well for the lack of a better analogy to some of the move. well, rog, sac looking types there intended to be utilized in such fields as construction agriculture. basically with any type of a hard manual labor and well, i'm about to try one of these on. ah
3:25 am
okay, so i'm just, i guess some might be looking like a full but this is very tight. if you can feel that it is very good form. you know, if you need anything to keep your back straight, if you need, if you have any sort of back problems, this is already a solution. and well, let's see a firm. if it's going to be good enough for me. if i, if i find it easier, lifting any source weight. so these are about 5 kilos. and again, i've been told that it doesn't make it doesn't make stuff lighter for you, but rather it redistributes the weight that you're holding. so certain contraptions here they are. well, i'd say borderline spyware, this here is a fake base station. so what does it scans the area for the existing cellular towers? and then it imitates one of them, pretends to be one of them. so when say your mobile device connects to it, it thinks it is connecting to a legitimate, nothing out of the ordinary world base station, but instead and connects to this one. and apparently you can do and manipulate
3:26 am
a lot of things using this device ah. busy so this device here has been designed forbes scientist, essentially, whenever they inject a lab animal with anything with a survey, they're studying, it helps them show and helps them see where the substance that they're studying. the substance that they're injected. a mouse, in this case where it travels, if it accumulates in the right spot, like here. and if it accumulates in the right amount, the developers, he are telling you that it has great potential for medicine. while this conference it wraps up the official year of science here in russia, but the organizers say that, well, yes, they come and go, but their developments, they are here to stay hamburgers done of reporting from. so
3:27 am
t r t i older boom bust is on the way next after which i'll have your next global update from artie here in moscow for now though from a column bray, thanks for watching ah. with both. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy even foundation, let it be an arms race is often very dramatic, development only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time time to sit down and talk i have often said transparency for the powerful privacy for the bell. this case about
3:28 am
privacy. what people care about is power attorney and a son just become a symbol of the battle for privacy. information is power. that's what's going on in the world. a huge struggle with governments and corporations to want to keep information secret and others who think democratic rights should be pushed forward . and people have a right to know what their parents are doing. watch how assange helped shift the conversation around transparency. come see what that battle has done to him. i feel like julie's life might be coming to an end. we are in a conflict situation with the largest and most powerful employee in such a situation. it's remarkable to survive through
3:29 am
this is been bus one business. you can't afford to miss, i'm ready to love it and i'm ready to board washington. here we got coming up. the asia pacific are shifting power dynamics as china and australia type continue to break your head. we discussed the evolution of view politics in the region and what it means for the world to largest economy. and that group of fios crypto currency industry have gone before congress to discuss the future of regulation in this space. we're bringing the highlights from the hearing and what i mean. then we take a look at the fall out from an amazon web services outage that we felt across the internet, raising some serious questions about why it happened. and what this tells us about the state of monopolies on the internet, we have a pasture today. so let's get started with the program with the nations that will
3:30 am
be most influence in asia. the united states has unseated china as the most influential nation on the continent. according to the australia bass low, we institute the research group said, and it's 2021 asia power index that china's power had taken a step back in the 2nd year of the cobra. 1900 pandemic. as it begins to look inward to shore up some deficiency now, meanwhile, they say the united states has gained ground as the biden administration has tried to counter trying to influence through diplomatic efforts in the region. as far as the overall rankings of who wields the most. busy power in asia, the u. s. and china are followed by japan, india, russia, and australia. australia is important here as it has maintained its ranking, despite trade disputes with china, which the authors of the report say, have improved its resilience in 2021. let's go ahead and dig into what all this means. the professor richard wolf is the host of economic update and author of the sick. this is the system. when capitalism fail to save us from pandemic or itself,
