6:01 pm
convicted of crimes, even if they spend their entire lives in australia. it is not good enough from new zealand, just coming a penal colony for australia and just reporting your problem and why does not solve the problem of gangs invite australia and new zealand. the broadcasting lab direct from the studios in market this is already international. i'm john thomas. certainly glad to have you with us. right now we start with breaking news. this our, the fate of just gives lane and maxwell, long time friend of late convicted sex offender, jeffrey epstein is finally known. the jurors have closely watched the trial and they've found her guilty of all charges, but one she was accused of grooming teenage girls for epstein. for more on this we can cross live to our teeth, been swan ben. this has been a trial, it is attacked and a lot of attention worldwide. can you tell us more about the guilty verdict and the
6:02 pm
case itself? yeah, absolutely sham. was you mention? certainly delay maxwell found guilty on 5 of the 6 counts against her. the jury took 5 days to come to this conclusion. the judge had actually ordered that they spent an extra hour each day deliberating because he said they needed to get to this before the end of the year. well they have so those are $56.00 counts essentially, she was found guilty on counts 1345, and $6.00. let me share with you what those counts include. found guilty of several things. number one of sex trafficking of a minor transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity. and 3 related counts of conspiracy. count 2 was the one count that she was not guilty on. that was the count of enticing a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts. now, as you probably know, not all counts are the same counts. one through 4 were the lowest number of maximum prison years in prison that you can get counts 5 in the 6. those are the heavy counts. let me share with you though. so count 5 is the count of sex trafficking.
6:03 pm
and conspiracy that carries a maximum of 5 years in prison with it. but the big count, the biggest of them, all, that is count 6, count 6 is sex trafficking of an individual under the age of 18. and shawn, that count carries a maximum of 40 years in prison. this trial have gone on for over a month with prosecutors calling more than 24 witnesses to the stand, bringing them forward. essentially to tell sort of tells. busy of life behind the kind of behind the curtain with jeffrey epstein and going maxwell maxwell more than just a frame and former girlfriend that i've seen. she was believe to be the fix or the one who would recruit a lot of these young girls and bring them to the properties in several different locations, including florida, new york and new mexico. now, going, maxwell's attorneys had argued that this entire trial wasn't about her, it was actually about delay maxwell, dean on trial for the crimes of jeffrey epstein. but clearly a jury felt very differently about it. but it's also interesting about this case is
6:04 pm
that there were only 4 ms who were the about the center of glen maxwell's prosecution for women who would accused her of recruiting them when they were under age. on behalf of jeffrey epstein and sharing him with powerful friends. we also heard a lot from pilots, 2 at one time worked for jeffrey epstein. and we also got a glimpse during this trial of that. so called little black book, the little black book being that list of famous people, powerful people and influential people with whom jeffrey epstein had a relationship and had shared a lot of these young girls. now going back to was not completely done at this point . she's still facing by the way to charges of perjury. and there is another trial going forward or another case going forward that takes her out of this still surrounds jeffrey of seeing. and that's the case of prince andrew course. virginia go free. the woman who was accused prince andrew of having to abuse her, she says that he did when she was under age. and again, that was all tied back to jeffrey epstein and going maxwell. so again, at a later time, there will be a sentencing hearing. going, maxwell, by the way,
6:05 pm
did not respond in the court room, remain relatively stoic and walked out, should be sentenced at a later time. but again, facing up to 65 years in prison. going, maxwell found guilty on 5 of 6 charges against her, and again, could be spending the rest of her life behind bars. john, all right, ben swan, we know that a lot of big names are watching this. you mentioned that little black book as this story develops, we know that you'll be keeping us the price. thanks right now, while the global colored pandemic continues, america has a different priority with joe biden. now finding a massive $700000000.00 military budget for the upcoming year, even by america's own estimates, that's a 100 times more than the cost of vaccinating the entire planet that are cheese. because you have comments. it's bigger than it's bad of an ever before. america's new military budget, $777700000000.00. so vast, it board doesn't monstrous. and it's still not enough. say the people who passed it
6:06 pm
are nations facing many threats right now. just read the paper every day. china, russia ran in yet that budget was actually provided by the white house. was a cut, pretty dramatic cut if you look at it as and john adjusted for inflation. it is remarkable. these lawmakers they'll, they'll sit there and argue for weeks, months about maternity leave, or building roads or bridges will or walls. but the better part of a trillion dollars on a war machine back 88 for 11 against past. and the next day that will come to work and to congress and, and they'll wonder where the heck all their money went. i also find it amusing that senator mansion indicates his worry about the deficit after voting justice week for a military budget of $778000000000.04 times greater than build back better over 10 years and $25000000000.00 more than the president requested
6:07 pm
$778000000000.00. i mean $700000000.00 is a decimal here. a decimal. where rounding up and down by, by hundreds of millions, 16 times greater than russia's military budget, greater than the next 11 highest military budgets put together. a sudden that the human mind can barely comprehend. somewhat of the extra billions going towards the secretary shall take appropriate action to increase the use of low emission initial free and net 0 initial energy technologies in the operations programs, projects and activities of the department provided these is cost effective on with ally cycle of the investment, there's also a new ranko position in the u. s. military, according to the n v. a draft bill. and that is gender advisor. so troops can get help if they feel like changing genders. we can only guess how many millions that's going to cost. and of course,
6:08 pm
none of this would be possible without china and russia because of whom the pentagon argued it needed more money. ginger sandy, we firmly opposed the u. s. slipping negative content concerning china or making an issue out of china for political manipulation is not implement negative content and articles in the act that target china and dummy's, chinese interests or hurt overall bilateral ties and cooperation and important areas. while the l g b t, q plus community may let out a sigh of relief, people that have been incarcerated. guantanamo bay innocence included without trial or justice for decades, will just have to wait a little longer. now one thing they didn't find any money for is, is a field doesn't plane tickets to send guantanamo inmate's home, or to court. unfortunately, he section 1032 of the act continues to borrow the use of funds to transfer guantanamo bay detainees to the custody or effective control of certain foreign
6:09 pm
countries. and section 1033 of the act bars, the use of funds to transfer guantanamo bay. detainees into the united states, unless certain conditions are met. it would cost an estimated $7000000000.00 to vaccinate billions. those who still can't get the vaccine. one percent of america's military budget, just one percent, to potentially hold the development of new strains and variance of coven. but no gender advise us in the electric cars for the pentagon. that's the priority. the more the pentagon spends on insanity, the more military contractors make money, isn't we're not at war with anybody. and why we need a military budget the, his bigger than the next over 10 nations combined. i mean that's, that's nonsense. now if you just ended that military industrial compet use ended this massive military state and let people spend their own money as they see fit.
6:10 pm
you'd see people spending their money to help people far more effectively than you as a i d ever does. to provide health care for people overseas and not using that money to hurt people the way the military does. ah, the popular messaging app telegram might soon be restricted in germany over claims . it's not doing enough to combat extremism content and coded conspiracy theories, but it wasn't all that long ago. and german media was criticizing russia for trying to impose similar restrictions as moscow has been quick to point out. when in 2018 russian court imposed restrictions on the telegram app and prevent attended messages, almost savagery immediately reported about that so called violation of the freedom of speech in russia. but now that political campaign is heating up in germany, guess what? they are targeted with restrictions. telegram, well, it is all rather simple and se telegram in a way it revolutionized messaging and it brought a lot of good to the word to the world and it has changed to things. and it has
6:11 pm
changed the ways we will text each other, i should say. but of course, a telegram being one of the least regulated and apps for messaging. there's also another side for this medal it has harboured and has become a haven for all sorts of fringe groups. and while some of those groups might be rather innocent, others are not others or rather harmful. there are all sorts of extremists who are well organizing their there are all sorts of anti vax or movements to which are, well they kind of get all the information or the misinformation, i should say from this messenger. they feed each other with this misinformation and they kind of exist in this little bubble of delusion or that telegram basically allows them, allows them to exist there and to coordinate their black protests actions, demonstrations and so on and so forth. and basically drag and involve more people into the circle of covered dirt misinformation. and this is exactly the problem that germany has with telegram that it allows this sort of people to just exist and well to festa there. and so right now they are accusing telegram of hate speech or
6:12 pm
they are looking for will legal ways to somehow will influence the company and to have the company or if they can't influence it, than to take it down altogether. and of course, the german government here, we can all understand it because while harmful societies, they should not be allowed to just really exist on any platform. but basically this is where the hypocrisy bit comes in. because when russia back in 2018, try to do the exactly same thing, the exact same thing to block telegram because there were terrorists and extremists plotting and you know, coordinating their actions there. nobody wanted to listen to russian. they weren't having any of that. germany was outraged, all of europe was outraged. this was their rhetoric. the blocking of telegram is yet another sound development concerning freedom of speech pluralism and the right to privacy in russia. this is the sort of will rhetoric we heard back in 2018. well, compared to what germany is saying right now, we must quickly create
6:13 pm
a legal option for switching telegram. so has to be much reaction and from the german public over this you can see one of the headlines, for example, that thereafter are very, very heated debates over world tower targeting, telegram all sorts of all sorts of that bullshit as he of hatred for example, right? now those politicians, those german politicians who are calling for a blockage of telegram for to band the up, they are getting a bit of their own medicine. so now the public and their world politics, political rivals, they kind of fire back and they accuse them of violating free speech. it does not fit in with a free constitutional state to simply switch off digital platforms. this proposal fits into totalitarian regimes but not into our constitutional order. switching off an entire app is a form of state media censorship that we do not want in germany. so there you have it, and it's not the 1st case recently of germany being accused of, well, you know,
6:14 pm
are not being that dedicated to the freedom of speech. principal artes persisted channel in german. it has been banned in germany, even though it had every legal right to exist there and to well, to appear on the airwaves. germany justified the decision by saying that the channel should have, should have received a german broadcasting license. even though there are no legal grounds to do that, we're being told by experts it received a broadcasting license in serbia, which is good enough for the entirety of the you. but germany wasn't having that. and so there have been some accusations of well that germany is not as dedicated to the freedom of speech principal as it may be wants to appear. we spoke to mateo dummy, a commentator at tech travel geeks. he thinks blocking one platform won't stop the spread of extremist content. obviously, a telegram uses who and telegram at the moment. i shouldn't have too much of an issue. moving to whatsapp apples i message platform, google's messaging chat platform. there are loads of different messaging apps and
6:15 pm
services, and let's not forget, they're also dedicated social media platforms which make it even easier to distribute this type of information or to congregate and discuss these topics. it's also very, very contradictory. we're sometime about 10 years ago in the, in the arab spring, we were celebrating these platforms for enabling uprisings across the mcgray. but in the mid least, it's one of those things that i think is very contradictory. it's fine when it suits you, but then you fight against it when it doesn't sell to come in this program. in ortiz, world news to with sean thomas, parents shouldn't get to decide what their kids learn in school. according to the author of controversial us anti slavery project. we fresh out that a bit with our invited guest page of the structure internet
6:16 pm
with ah ah ah welcome nick jam berner to the show for this christmas week. special nick was casey research for a long time, but he started his own company focused on helping people to see that big economic
6:17 pm
and geopolitical picture to survive and thrive. the changes the head ah ah, i welcome back to his art international. an indigenous leader in new zealand says australia is using his country as a dumping ground. the national murray authority chairman wants camera to scrap its policy of deporting new zealanders even if they are convicted of crimes. it is not good enough that new zealand is becoming a penal colony for australia and, and just deporting your problem a why does not solve the problem of gangs and both australia and new zealand. it is not good and not just to say, well, gonna stick a whole lot of people on applied on a government child applying and seem them back to new zealand. that is not the
6:18 pm
spirit of friendship. and that you would expect between 2 neighbors under australian law, if 4 nationals are sentenced to more than one year in prison, they automatically lose the right to stay in the country. that applies even if they have lived in australia their entire lives. the last couple of years have seen hundreds of people sent back to new zealand, australia the immigration minister has defended the policy saying the government will continue to expel for nationals who commit serious offenses. matthew to khaki, though, he says it needs to work with new zealand to find a better solution. now, i also did that australian citizen. it's easy just to deport the problem away. and australians want exactly what we want. we want safe communities. we do not want to say drugs being sold to our children. we are sick and tired of saying gonzalez, so asked rates. one possible solution is a joint task force to address
6:19 pm
a couple of different things. and even though our police forces, they do share information, data and intelligence at the moment, that would be good to see if we could just increase and including and beastie and joint resources. that that means also having a look at information and intelligence to find out we, these drug supply networks, a stablished themselves across south east asia, even into the pacific being let's do that job together as austria and you sealant and that ends ex thorough ah, should parents have more say in what their children are taught at school. well, according to nicole hannah jones, they shouldn't. she is the founder of the controversial $161900.00 project, which aims to reframe us history in terms of race. and her views are pretty i don't really understand this idea that parents should decide what's being taught. i'm not a professional educator. i don't have a degree in social studies or science. we send our children to school because we
6:20 pm
want them to be taught by people who have a expertise in the subject area. and that is not my job. as a parents, i have every right to ensure my child isn't being towards life. despite what nicole 100 jones says, how can this be promoted to a she or anyone else to say parents don't get to say in our children's education position is faulty and should be listened to and must have a platform and moved, sorry, but parents must be involved come on, you pesky parents, just let her indoctrinate your kids in peace. hannah johns launched the 6900 project with the new york times 2 years ago. its goal is to highlight the legacy of slavery in the contributions of black americans throughout us history. indeed, content from the project has been included in school curricula in the past 5 years, and at least 5 states. we discuss it with the legal analyst, jennifer breeding master, and also with political activist anthony rogers, right? fortunately in america right now,
6:21 pm
the political faction is kind of taking over everything else including education. i think that's some of the concern here because really what you're trying to do is refrain retrain, children's mind. and that's, that could lead and, and, and we're seeing this now the rise and anxiety and political issues in children getting younger and younger every year. and i think parents have a right to be concerned about that. the major issue here is that a professor hannah jones is actually talking about the truth and, and that's what's lacking so much in this nation right now. and it's really, really sad that even the most far right wing people in germany can accept the fact that there were nazis that carried out atrocities the fact that this nation was forge and a cauldron of white supremacy. slavery indigenous genocide and lance matching is not alive at the end of the day. this is a fear of the right from hearing and having to embrace the truth. it's funny that the people understand the i are also talking about all the talking about not the
6:22 pm
germany because not the journey with also the government and the order that the leadership there. that it started to import this propaganda into the population to say if you agree or you don't, that is what my colleague is saying here. that's what some of these new educational politicians are trying to are trying to impose on children on young children. and all that's going to do is continue dividing the population because one thing has happened from this they, they claim to be the moral hybrid. it claims to be the beacon of truth, but all it's doing is dividing people confusing children and wanting children to turn against each other. i don't even know what just happened. that was a very interesting soliloquy. again, we're not trying to tear people apart from each other. a truth is truth. if truth is going to hurt people that's on, on, on the people. and what you just heard, in this very myopic and silly a soliloquy, is that it's some sort of political motivation. truth just is, is truth. you cannot deny what has happened in this country. what is happening in
6:23 pm
this country, and you cannot deny that this country was founded in the image and the lens of benefiting white people at the expense of other people. and that's just a fact. you can absolutely talk and teach about history and about what's happened in this country. them the heretic, things of laboring without having to completely de do is completely unravel the fabric and the foundations of this country's history. but when it comes to truth, migrant, we are so far from one that used to mean it's not a relative term. france has registered europe highest ever daily spike in coded cases with 200000 in the past 24 hours. the health ministers describing it as a title wave. here's our policy with more. he laces announcement is certain concerning, not only to france, but here across europe. as you correctly mentioned, the french health minister announcing that france has crossed the threshold of more than 200000 people,
6:24 pm
testing positive for covert in the last 24 hours. if you break that down, it's 2 french people testing positive every 2nd for 24 hours. including the daytime and nighttime, the actual figure was 208000. now, the french minister made that announcement while he was motivating to turn the mandatory health pass into a vaccination pass. in other words, people will have to show proof of vaccination if they're to enter any kind of public spaces, bars, restaurants, and cultural venues. at the same time, the health minister spoke about galloping circulation and said, these kind of figures make you dizzy little to do them and music about the ohm icon . very am, but it's not just to wave anymore. given the numbers we are recording, it's a tidal wave. tonight's figures show the continuous increase. it makes you dizzy. now, 5000000 people in france have not as of yet received the vaccination. the health minister ascribing to primarily 2 reasons. he says,
6:25 pm
the one group is people who are far away from information and potentially far away from any kind of vaccination sites. and the number of people that fall into this category is hard to determine. but then there's a, another group of people who are against, against the vaccine. what ever comes and here, turning a health pass into a vaccination pass is not going to help them. these are people who believe that covered doesn't exist, that the vaccine can, can kill a person. and there is no way to try and convince these. anti faxes fonts now has the highest number of covert positive people per day in europe. it's hospitals are already struggling to deal with people who have been admitted with the previous delta strain. and so they are increasing concerns that although the army cons so far seems mulder. but certainly we are going to witness frances health services being pushed to the limit. i that is a for me this are all see in about 34 minutes with another full infrastructure new
6:26 pm
stay with us or change nation. ah, ah christmas. the traditional yuletide on a day this year i'm making this traditional with a special christmas guide. me christmas tolerance diversity guide. we all know that christmas is a family holiday. so make sure all your parents are properly member. i follow the agenda that make us know woman instead of snowman, or even better that this new person designed for themselves. ah, no gifts, no, don't so teddy,

6:28 pm
i join me every person on the alex, simon, sure. but obviously you to guess on the world of politics, sport, business, i'm sure business. i'll see you then. ah, ah, no one is starting at the age of 14 and battled the next 5 years. his addiction eventually became psychotic, using very high potency wax, and he jumped off a 6 story building. i guess that was the only way he knew how to end. ah,
6:29 pm
today we're at the 2015 kind of is. we're here, we're all, we've had a sore vendor with edible and some of the live people in colorado. nearly 2 thousands, colorado became head of a test bed for medical, and then later recreational marijuana. you know, at the time i wasn't really concerned, i didn't have a strong opinion about it. either way. i didn't know that marijuana had changed so drastically from when we were younger. when johnny turned 18, he was able to very easily get a, a medical card and then he was able to legally purchase, possess,
6:30 pm
and consume very high th c products that led to the psychosis. you know, he ultimately died as a result of psychosis brought on by i t. c. marijuana. and i believe that if you'd never consumed marijuana that he'd still be here today. oh, i. hello connie boy and i live in denver, colorado. my son was diagnosed his kit to frontier, specifically from cannabis 4 years ago. careless in a gifted program through elementary and middle school. and he was doing great.
