you shouldn't be seeing your family for the holiday season. i worry so much about people who still to this point, refused to get vaccinated. the virus is going to find you, please get vaccinated. all these people who have not been vaccinated, you have an obligation to yourself, to your family, and quite frankly, i know you criticize this to your country. get faxes it now it's free. it's convenient. i promise you it saves the lives. i'm honest to god, leave it your patriotic duty. really big long lines. your anger is rising, frustration is rising. people are angry at the mayor. people are angry at the governor and the new york state government, but people are also angry at the white house. taylor mop and archie, new york and chaos accused. haven't just been seen at coven testing stations. so at airports across the world with millions of people currently facing christmas travel disruption because of mass flight cancellations,

temper planned flight and b, lufthansa chief is angry at the european union. he says that the company would have to carry out a 2000 in t flights to follow e rule and not to move landing slots at various airports. while climate friendly exemptions were found in almost all other parts of the world. during the time of the pandemic, the e u does not allow this in the same way that harms the climate and is exactly the opposite of what the commission wants to achieve. meanwhile, these bobby is keen for those who are planning the holidays across the atlantic. the 2 biggest american airlines, delta and united, have cancelled around $200.00 flights according to the carriers. the reason is a spike in on the con cases. and to quote, an exhaustion of options and resources. this follows a call to the us authorities by the delta
t o who off to cut quarantine for fully vaccinated people to 5 days from the current. tim, these developments come several months after the fi. oh, of another american eylandt. southwest ordered his employees to be fully vaccinated against by the same. let's take a look at how this happened. several months ago. me in the news
. i've never been in favor of corporations imposing that kind of a mandate executive order from president biden mandates. it all federal employees and then all federal contractors have to have a mandate info vaccine in place by december, the 8th. so we're working through that. ah, ah, in one of the world's richest men has lashed out its cnn in an interview. tesla, basil and musk jokes that he is not perverted enough to appear on the news network . what was it you said the? the requirement for being a cnn georgiana is? are you, are you a pervert? voted or no?
will banquet followed a series of controversies of cnn anchor chris cuomo was recently fired for lying about helping out his brother than governor of new york. both siblings have been accused of sexual misconduct. another see, and i'm presented. don't lemon has been sued for sexually assaulting, abandoned a ball that's a claim that he denies most recently produces john griffin was charged with sex crimes involving children or we spoke with legal and me, the analyst line, or who said that a long must quit, was actually genuine condemnation of the houston. no, it's not a joke and bad taste. it's the truth about a network in bad taste. let's go back to what chris cuomo did. not only was he providing strategy to his brother, but he was working with his governor staff, one in particular. and he was talking about basically how they could, celine besmirch in, impede the reputation of those women who might be making these allegations of the
1st place. so now this transcends strategy sessions from going and deliberately targeting and the conspiracy to impugn the integrity of women who dared complain about untoward behavior. this is not at all consistent. so one thing i wanna just explain though, think of 2022 brings something to bear along with the death and the destruction and the, the, the internment of, of, of, or in terms of i should say of cnn is the fact that what is really news today is not what people think. sometimes a satirical is more, is more on point now as far as see and n, he's absolutely correct. so prediction here to be to be waxing vatike in python and it's going to be over for that wretched news organization before you know it because everything that mr. musk said is true.
today mark's 30 years since the symbolic end of the ussr, the kremlin soviet flag was lowered on, replaced by the colors of the russian federation. with president mikhail gorbachev . announcing his resignation. the assault united by the communist ideology, existed for almost 70 years. however, relations between his republics have become rocky, the liberalizing policy of perestroika doing little to stabilize things. the union was replaced by 50 newly formed states among them, russia. some of these states now form the commonwealth of independent states. yes, people in moscow, how they felt about the collapse of the soviet union. melissa, the downside is that the last territory, we could not restrain the urge of certain nations to gain independence. it was inevitable. it was going to happen anyway. but little soon period when an empire is collapsing, it's always bad because something big and united fragments into a lot of smaller pieces and always ends up in war because everyone starts to have
own ambitions. there's a lot of war and anger as well lived together. we could travel to all our republics now at silver. you cannot go so easily with flu on a financial level in terms of our basics. wife has improved. as for everything else on an idea, logical level, things are not as good. the youth of today are lacking in ideas. there is no shared sense of purpose within the country. and accordingly also get the collective opinion from grandparents and parents. is that it was better with the ussr. education was better, perhaps everyone's mood was good. but i think there is more freedom now there's little trouble. that was just a pretty long as it has definitely become better now. we are not as isolated as we were before. so there is more opportunity for a self fulfillment inside the country. so wasn't just one the following day, the us a saw was formerly dissolved. there was rejoicing in the united states that the demise of its main geopolitical rival, though the mood was very different. and socialist countries like china,
we discussed with a panel of guests the reasons for an impact of the dissolution. the, the collapse of the subject is don't political leadership. and that is good. may god just is the main person who bears responsibility. one of the reasons why he was so unsuccessful was he attended economic, economic, and political reform at the same time. and the other thing was that he had an enemy bodies unison and they fell out. they hated one another. now, how gilson and gilbert of work together shall be general, probably been with us today. that's all being had to reform. that those reforms are absolutely necessary. the gorbachev is working on 2 funds, one to reform the soviet union inside, and also to reform its relations with the capitalist world. and he tried his efforts there failed because of the inability of the united states and in russia. soviet union then russia to, to come to terms we all think the see in the post soviet space,
a number of conflicts. whether that's going to come back with, from touch cheapest on to, for example, kicks on this back. histone to do you think that we would have seen those kinds of disputes if the u. s. a saw, had remained a whole the biggest last i think of all in terms of. busy relations human relations. ready was the breakdown of been rather narrowed and tell you waited the but the feeling of community community odyssey that existed within the soviet union, that local level that is lost. and i think everybody knows that the disintegration at the beginning of the soviet union, there was a real hope for a confederate world consideration. and that failed immediately after that initial period after gorbachev for stale and yeltsin to try to engage with the
united states. and europe in that field is will, hey, give the world a vision of a fair society, a just society. and on paper, it was the fairest and the best society you can imagine. but it was a you tube, it proved to be a utopia. it's not just a matter of what was done for, for people in the countries of the soviet unit itself. it was also the way in which the soviet union was able to interact with the rest of the world. and overall, it's present was, i would say very positive. and since then, the lack of having the soviet union that has made the world a much more dangerous place to come for you while some dream of
so what we've 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. the only personally i'm getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time time to sit down and talk with welcome back to serbian filmmaker america started. so i was told r t, freedom of the press no longer exists. he was reacting to the decision by german regulators to take our sis, the channel r t d off at the station of our today's headquarters in moscow. it has a serbian license for cable and satellite transformation, which under european law is enough to allow it to broadcasting germany. berlin know
thinks otherwise. and earlier ortiz, you tube channels also slapped with a back. this is reaching be should be august. so what it means, because at the moment when the technology goes all the way around there, you don't have the, any one of the stations that the love to see because of its documentary programs because of a lovely and correctly reporting from different parts of the world. and i'm going to treat germany cannot stand it. and i'm just afraid that this is not just the autonomous, a german decision. i think this is much higher scale of or that just started 2 years ago. for breast does not exist anymore. everything is transferred to ideology, you suffer because you don't polish reality. they want the thought to be ally,
ally to be a true. this is why semester and the problem for them is that you are opening the windows to which we can see what is the real life of the people. what is the real? they show the people against elite. it's a fight, but you have to go forward. you have to find the ways to, to, to, to go forward because as much as they press you, you will have more and more audio. now ma'am, no, celebrating christmas today is the white guy that obviously they're under a festive chill, little different to that some others of us. he's a quick tongue in cheek of us will need guide. ah christmas. the traditional yuletide holiday this year making this traditional with a special christmas guide me christmas tolerance diversity guide. busy we all know that christmas is a family holiday. that makes oral your parents are properly number
i this year. follow the agenda and make us know woman hands. denise. no man. or even better at this new person designed for themselves. oh, no gift. no, don't. so teddy, best prepare your children for the brave new world to remember . diversity is not at i o is no longer an appropriate cost. you this is appropriation 0, a logical appropriation offensive to the dear community. mm hm. and obviously sandra has to be cancelled. i
because he is a why says gender male who amuses mrs. close, discriminate against children based on behavior, whereas red, which is a communist color, makes children sit on his lap, makes people destroy trees and exploit sales. so sorry kids sandler is not coming to town anymore. i follow these instructions. stick to the spirit of christmas. you decide. oh. well back to more traditional ideas a christmas is often it seems. santa claus comes from the north po, bought different countries. they give him different origins. he to oliver reports from lapland. he's probably the busiest man on the planet right now. but where santa claus lives generally depends on where in the world you are. where does santa
claus live in? at the north boy. i every one knows in africa. yeah. yeah. yeah. right. yeah. so you get to to look to, oh, so left to right and yes so, so are on there i have no idea but i guess somewhere in finland main present day. i think santa claus are probably living somewhere where there's a nice b and night little light factor that he has for all the toys actually sackcloth or in norway in new york, new york. yep. now some people say he lives in finland. what do you think of that? i don't agree with that. new york, the north wall. new york city north paul. okay. now some people think he lives in finland. do you buy that? maybe. have you ever heard of lapland? no. in north america, the answer is usually that he lives in the north pole. but there's a few problems with that. firstly, there's no buildings there for sumter in his elves to live in,
and it's far too cold. secondly, there's no christmas trees at the north pole, in fact, they've no trees at all. and you don't usually see some to slay being pulled by these guys. of course pulling sun to slay is the elite team over reindeer and looking after those reindeer is johan, who has the wonderful title of rain? dia whisper. johan, a thanks very much for talking to us. we're looking at where son to lives. now. there was some room as he lives in the north pole, but reindeer can't live in the north po can like. no, i'm ah, sans ice originally from my mount ear, quarter of the room dory. but he was here in the of a name it because it's easier for people to reach to him then i'm the radius are here in north. well, there's nothing to leave round. you look after the reindeer, how he whispered to a reindeer, what makes hello heard his name? what makes a good reindeer for santa? ah, the reindeer needs to be patient. it needs to be curious. it needs to be strong enough
and bold enough if they are too shy, they are afraid to fly over the skies. now what does the rain d a do for relaxation when it's not flying? they are just, you know, killing, laying down, eating, chatting with the friends, you know, but that leaves us with quite the problem. what about all of the letters to santa that are addressed to him at the north pole? i'm here in the bustling epicenter of santa's post office, enjoined by a very busy postal elf cold. here he's taking some time out of a dead to talked with it. he thanks very much. welcome welcome to santa claus main, post office. thank you very much for having me. now. the question i have is, what do you do here with all of those letters that arise from the girls and boys all over the world? well, 1st of all, this very, very many letters that arrive every year. this always are over half a 1000000 letters that sent to get and the 1st we thought him out by the country.
and so that's what i'm doing here right now. santa has received a letter sir, around $200.00 countries so far. so what happens to those letters that are addressed to the north pole? please tell me they come here. they come here, let me see if i do have here some. ah example, for example over here. so this is the place where they all end up anyway. so they come to the right may even though you put the wrong address in it. well, that's good to know that everybody watching make sure that their letters always arrive with santa claus. well, it's good to know that santa is receiving his mail here in lapland, but this wasn't always his address. most theologians will agree that saint nicholas was born in nor around the mediterranean coastal town of mirror. now damira in turkey in around $288.00 d. however, there's not many images of santa in his home town on christmas cards. well, there is one way to settle this argument good and proper to speak to the man
himself, santa claus. hello. thank you very much for joining us here on our tea. sunset. we've been searching for you around the world. old. tell us in your own words, where are you from? oh scuffle. i am from here. you got lost the sucker. yeah, i've been here for really long time actually hear the arctic circle. i talking more than way over 30 years in my house. yeah, i see her. i have my office now here. i'm here every day of the year. so children all over the world can come meet me, but you're able to travel extreme distances and all over the world to make sure that you deliver toys to the boys and girls. how does that happen? whooping all. that is actually quite easy. oh, well you know my ranges, they fly not going to phyllis and on the tricks, no exclusive here. first of all, remember, the world is divided into the time so,
okay. so when you travel you all the time, the same time from times on the danza like that's how you do it. well, well the other way, sir. the santa tell you the thought of home christmas eve. how tiring? nice. going very slowly while you're waiting on. well, that's my other secret. the world is turning around that day, a little bit slow and thank you very much. santa claus. a merry christmas. you all are married, a and a very merry christmas for me as well. peter, all of her for r. t in santa's village in the arctic circle. lapland. and i wraps it up from the ot team for this news out the back with that day since it is hope. see that ah
ah, oil and gas manufacturing, electricity, telecom, you guys, quotation, all of them now have i o t type of infrastructure connected to the internet. well, clearly realizing there's disruptive potential so that those countries can't ignore it because it threatens national security issue. but if we take the nato and you countries, virtually all of them subscribe to certain doctrines and maintains selling but tell us forces. they are a cyber army on behalf of a country. that's their job. to join me every thursday on the alex simon, sure. i'll be speaking to guess on the world of politics. sport business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm.
ah, i am max taiser, welcome to a very kaiser christmas now santa claus and rudolph were scheduled to deliver a bounty of toys today. but due to supply chain constraints and the cost of feeding the reindeer, skyrocketing down through the chimney, into the living room, pop stand, collins, to explain all this to us. dan, welcome to our kaiser, christmas show. merry christmas everybody. of course, you also normally would bring a lump of coal, but there's also a shortage of supply of coal. so we'll just have to accept your words, your pearls of wisdom, let's say here. so you know, we look back at.
