ah, police dogs and battens are deployed against anti lockdown demonstrators in amsterdam. the cities mad gave the order to break up all some strong illegal relatives with cobra cases on the rise here when r t, we examine how big pharma cached in big time all throughout 2021. almost 800 people were slain in chicago last year. the highest number for a quarter century here on the program. we look at this and other crucial issues that you had to cope with in the past year. also, 19 years, 10 months said 25 days aud, this is american legacy. i just remembered here on the program, we looked back at one of the defining moments of last year,
or the u. s. withdrawal from afghanistan, for example, which brought the country to the brink of collapse with a very war. welcome to you from all of us here to international in moscow. it's now just after 5 pm. so cobra cases are on the rise and parts of europe with infections breaking all time records. france last week reported more than 200000 new cases. 4 days in a row. meanwhile, governments are again imposing harsh restrictions, especially on those who are not vaccinated. that continues to spark an awful lot of anger and amsterdam, people hit the streets to protest against to look down there. they clashed with the police, who responded with dogs and battles. ah,
ah, thousands of people as you saw there rallying in the dutch capital on sunday, defying upon amidst the corona virus lockdown measures that have been in place in the netherlands for the last few weeks. now the right places you saw there with their battens and their shields were trying to break up the crowd gathered in amsterdam to show their continued anger against the restrictions that are in place . and also against vaccines. the local government, which had a mood this particular gathering, had also issued an emergency ordinance which gave the police the right to head into the central museum square. and to clear those protest is from that. but to despite that protest is turned out regardless. now the netherlands has been doing this
extended lockdown our since december 19th. and as a result of that, restaurants, a shot and all known of central shops are also shut. and that's going to take place and continue going on until at least the middle of the month of january, public gatherings. as part of these restrictions means that no more than 2 individuals can gather at the same time together. so this protest was clearly outside of the, the block. it's absolutely against those cart measures. but despite that, we saw this chaotic scenes in amsterdam as the police and those protest as were clashing something we have seen elsewhere to know across europe. there is, is concerned that guess we're heading in to 2022. it's yes. many people only think this is the time for fresh opportunities of fresh chance. but there are many people who really fear that the fresh restrictions that are coming in to force mean this
will be essentially another ground, whole year as the authorities continue to try and grapple with the virus. just to give you an example here in france, there are new restrictions coming in to force. it includes a ban on eating and drinking on long distance trains and also a requirement now for children as young as 6 to where a mosque was about proper. it was very sad that we have to resort to such measures to protect the population adults should be vaccinated. now children with this is a very good solution. this will protect both children and adults that at risk report if this measure protects us, all, especially children. why not those who remain unvaccinated, there is some really bad news. the national assembly is going to continue debating this week a new law that would essentially at curb the liberties of those who remain and vaccinated further antigen or p c r. u will not be allowed into bars, restaurants,
et cetera. and you can imagine that that is going to cause a lot of consternation here in france, where around 10 percent of the population remains unvaccinated. there is anger here to resort with the new year's eve where they should have been celebrations. they were bound on fireworks on the shells, alisa, and calls the muted festivities. but in, despite that they were crowds. the fewest on to the shoals elisa, causing problems for the police there and across the country we saw a much lamented new year's tradition making a big comeback. this is the burning and torching of cars. almost 900 vehicles were burned on new year's eve as part of that. now there was also, i'm good that's been felt in germany to with violent riots in some cities, including in one where they were clashes between the police and protest. is there something we seem to be seen quite a lot of in europe at the moment,
the protesters setting up barricades, but then even set lose a light. now all of this comes a mixed. another milestone. the pandemic shows that there has been a 100000000 cases of covert a positive cases that have been quoted across the european region. however, did give you some light to this. this does come at a time when studies suggesting that only chrome is less likely to damage to lungs than previous variance. such is the delta variant or even the l for b to variance. and that it also provokes a less severe type disease. so good news, but at the same time with restrictions in place and the continued fee that we are seeing from authorities, many people will be questioning if this ongoing tightening of restrictions is in fact the right path to tried. and in germany, people protest i beg of months,
clamped down by vandalizing. the officers of 2 m p. 's are using fireworks. one of them belong to the countries health minister. no one was hurt. you can see a very small amount of damage for the property. the authority say an investigation has been launched. meanwhile, across the atlantic, the number of coven cases has served in america, the weekly average, now surpassing 360000. a. throughout the whole pandemic, the world health organization has stretched. the only way forward is through mass vaccination, but while americans have been suffering, one sector isn't a rude health. maths. big pharma is reportedly been raking in over $90000000.00 every single day. here's our correspondence, asked tina 2021 beer we discovered does really no cure for greed. just off big pharma, pfizer is forecasting $15000000000.00 in revenue from its covert vaccine. this year . it is our 1st profitable quarter, hitting that $1900000000.00 mark
a majority of which is their cobra, 1900 vaccine of course, $1000.00 every 2nd. pfizer buy on tech and modo now made $1000.00 every 2nd. but it turns out that drug companies like to pop to pills at once, money on power, and we're better to wield $1.00 power than in washington. d. c. introducing congress is biggest lobbyist, big pharma. which last year dropped a cool $266000000.00 to sway america. lawmakers though, given how the holy trinity of fires, madonna biotech was averaging over 19000000 a day last yet it's really just loose change. blessone 3 days walk. in fact, for the rest of us. so it's an awful lot you know what, there's also an awful lot of in the u. s. capital, big pharma. nope. yes. in fact, so many, but they are number congressmen, 3 to one. so what does all that cash exposure get them? well, pretty much anything that they want. this is
a very powerful industry with significant lobbying clout, is very good at knowing exactly how many votes they need to kill pieces of legislation and figuring out a way to get those votes. it's funny though, because you'd think that with a democrat run house and senate from fiscal china would have had a tough year. after all thing years the party's been promising to fight the greed. first we'll take on the drug and insurance companies and hold them accountable for the prices they charge and the harm they cause. it's called valiant pharmaceuticals . i'm going after them. we're gonna stop this. this is predatory pricing, and then we'll tell the pharmaceutical companies thanks, but no thanks for overpriced drugs pay the highest prescription drug prices of any developed nation in the world. enough is enough. the greed of the pharmaceutical industry is killing americans and making many of them much sicker than they otherwise would have been. it has got to stop. so we need congress to finish the
job, to come together and make a difference in people's lives. turns out though, making money is so much more fun than making a difference in people's lives. in fact, 60 percent of big farmers, you know, be money goes to democrats. so when in april upon was proposed to knock down drunk prices surprise it got voted down one of the people against it, new jersey, senator bald mendez. you know, how much menendez is pocketed from the drug store? be this year? $80000.00. then along came the build back bat act, which among other things wanted to make medication actually affordable a ridiculous idea. so what did big pharma do? it splash some serious cash to block the bell? big farmer will spend, do, and say whatever it takes to defeat any legislation that will curb its unilateral power to dictate prices of prescription drugs. apparently the big pharma roles that leave all left one and for americans unable to afford their regular medication is
necessary. because while research, we have an obligation to ensure that the sale of our medicines provides us with the resources necessary to invest and future research and development. and while the knob is $1000000.00 ad failed bill back patches on the rocks anyway. so thank us crossed, we know what came as a real shock, other than politicians putting money for people and pharmaceutical giants. not caring about public health. the fact that big farmer pays diety 1st drug companies have raised prices with abandon, especially when they succeed in delaying or blocking competition. in some cases, tied to higher pay for executives. second, companies have manipulated the patent system and marketing exclusive. it is to extend their monopolies. 3rd, all the companies, the commission investigated, have employed anti competitive strategies to suppress generic competition. really,
there's no one i'd rather have in control of light saving medication. oh, also it wouldn't be mad at the pont anna classes. just a little while longer, they got on a pair of it and they want to keep this path there. and these other therapeutics aren't really going to make them a lot of money. politicians and big pharma, hard at work in dc, saving lives, serving the people and showing each and every day that there is no drug, more addictive than money, power and everything in between. well, it's not just a covert that was giving us a headache in 2021 with a migrant crisis along the southern border and record homicide rates in major major cities. for example, 2021 was chicago's deadliest year and 25 years coming as it did. and the whole defend the police movement will taking us back through at old. and the big part of last year from new york correspondent kind of 2021 is going to be
a hard year to forget. americans have been through a lot in the last 12 months. the year began with a tough challenge for green energy, low temperature is hit. the united states by surprise, texas was the worst hit because 25 percent of its electricity comes from wind turbines. they stop spinning and froze. the texas governor blamed joe biden and his new environmental regulations for the disaster that ensued. texas is going to protect the oil and gas industry from any type of hostile attack launched from washington d. c. president obama, post wind turbines pretty hard and despite last winter is disaster. biden is still giving them a big role. a key plank of our build back better recovery plan is building a modern, resilient climate infrastructure and clean energy future that will create millions of good pain, union jobs, all that and go friendly. energy was not prepared for some cold weather. energy
providers could not manage utility bills were through the roof. i'm pretty much paid $9.00, a kilowatt electricity, but i was very conservative with my electricity, so i have no idea exactly why this bill is so much but steadily going up. i absolutely cannot afford it. i'm not exactly sure, you know, who can it's gotten to the point where some people have totally turned off their power because they can't afford methods enough. they, they just can't afford it. it's a basic necessity for living. basic utilities should not cause 1000. and then there was coven, the total death toll in america rose to about $800000.00. jo, biden's, coven mandate, requiring people to get the job in order to keep their jobs resulted in employee shortages protests and even rioting. many different reasons were cited my people for opposing it. oh,
that's the lord i i important public services like firefighters, police and even airlines were a hard hit despite government attempts to convince people that vaccination against cove it is vital. a lot of people fear, and i think rightly so that they could end up on the street with no paycheck in the united states. we're already under a very st. i would call a severe shortage of qualified individuals to be mechanics, to be find a tennis to be pilots. specifically, half of the industry could potentially be gone to lunch, coven, it's killing people. st. crime is getting worse. many cities had the highest crime rates they've ever had since the ninety's a and
b. i did i last year the rallying cry was defined the police, but many are starting to backtrack on that saying they don't feel safe and they need protection diesel. and the police just as a regular rule has been colossal failure. he placing tried to implement de from the police crime has gone up. what has been new york chicago in minneapolis in the late it's it's been a colossal failure because what stops crime? what brings crime down, especially violent crime or more police on the street. you have to have police on the street in order for your street be safe. now things have also been heating up on the border. 1000000 migrants had been arrested illegally crossing the border.
that's the highest rate in 20 years. now many thought that jo biden's election on a promise of softer immigration policies was a signal that opened up the floodgates. but in reality, vital did not end up changing many of trumps immigration policies. asylum seekers still have to wait in mexico and the detention facilities along the us. mexico border are still just as ugly. how many children have been in the biden cages and calendar year 20? $21.00. senator. i respectfully disagree with your use of the term cages. by the way, here's a photograph of the biden cages that the senator that is precisely why articulated children on floors crashed in upon each other. when i took this photograph, the cobra rate of cobra positivity was over 10 percent. all of this while prices are rising, inflation is the name of the game. the usa is facing the highest rate of inflation
in 40 years with more than half of americans saying that they think the biden administration is only making things worse. it's been a terrible year for inflation. it's up around 8 percent or higher. this is the levels that we haven't seen since back in the jimmy carter years in the seventy's when the government just prints money out of thin air and spends it on things and gives it to people. it causes the value of your money to go down. that's what's happening in america. the government is printing money, spending more than it brings in, and actually the proposals to deal with it mostly are going to make things worse. the usa leaving afghanistan after 20 years of military presence forced washington to answer some questions about whether hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars were basically left to waste. not forgetting the countless lives lost on both the american and afghan side. i
the, the extraordinary success in this mission was due to the incredible skill, bravely and selfless courage of united states, military and our diplomat and intelligence professionals. it was designed to save american lives. this left the majority of americans blaming joe biden, for the afghan. pull out with politicians from all across the political. busy spectrum joining the chorus, the most illegal migrant crossings in 20 years. the highest crime rates in 30 years,
and a 40 year high and inflation as well as the end of a to decade, military operation. after a year of dad records, many americans are hoping that 2022 will bring respite. caleb bobbin our to new york. ah, so it's going to san does remain on the brink of a humanitarian disaster. millions of facing starvation as the winter temperatures plummet. the country's economy meantime remains on its knees. it is shrunk by nearly half in recent months. last summer's hasty exit, so tragic seems unfold. ah, thousands of oxen, afghans tried to flee the country during and after the u. s. evacuation it let a chaos of cobbles, airport as well as panic across the capital and their income bulging. all of this was our senior correspondent, but at gazda in 2001 it began with with righteousness and
pomp invade. i've gotta stand to fight for freedom to fight terrorism and make the world a better place. 19 years, 10 months and $25.00 days on. this is america's legacy. destroyed and sabotaged equipment. a country bought a ruin and still in control of the talbot. that is the ultimate tragedy of the afghan war at was entirely and violently pointless. years and years of an obliging little questioning media. fooled billions into believing that there was progress that america could win to her victory or the taliban to taliban flat. the end of the taliban taliban leadership on the run. and now the question is, how do you handle that success? ah, with
it wasn't supposed to be this way. the taliban wasn't supposed to sweep the country in mere weeks. the pentagon spent a decade preparing to leave of gaston, and even they weren't ready for this. together with our eyes, we will complete our mission bear. by the end of this year, i announced a timeline for drawing down our forces. we are working to finally and america's longest war, his time ended for evermore. his proudest movement of the afghan war wasn't supposed to be a humiliating evacuation under the guns of the taliban. but it was, there is absolutely nothing else to celebrate. the united states ended 20 years of war in afghanistan, the longest war and american history. we completed one of the biggest air lives in
history. with more than 120000 people evacuated to safety. no nation, no nation has ever done anything like it in all history. the only the united states had the capacity in the will and billing to do it. and we did it today. where was the afghan army? where was the western backed government? where did all the money go? the united states sunk more than a $100000000000.00 into rebuilding of data stock for reference adjusted for inflation. that is more than the united states spent on the marshall plot to rebuild europe after world war 2. and the tragedy of it is that for a civilian the side from all the american weapons and the taliban hads berries almost no evidence that any of that money ever passed through here from broken roads that lead to nowhere to abandoned hospitals from twisted contracts isn't
corrupt, leaders of janice, dawn can arguably be called the largest money laundering operation in human history . the united states is also committed to playing a leading role in the reconstruction of afghanistan. ah ah ah. the taliban now has more black hawk helicopters than 85 percent of the countries in the world. ah,
china and ices k still exist in our growing in afghanistan, and eventually they acquire. he's with americans stuck in afghanistan. oh, tell van in charge. ah, the slow more weaponry they've ever had mass border that is of the taliban now controls more of the country than it did before. the us invaded its new government this field with what dynamo, bay inmates, and terrorist mac dean who even have american bounties on their heads. what washington achieved was the absolute opposite of what it intended. the bombing at capital airport during the evacuation epitomized the afghan war, a senseless act, devoid of reason, which needless, he cut short so many lives. we will not forgive.
we will not forget. we will hunt you down to make you pay. we've had the same promise before 20 years ago when america was united, and when it thought that it could change the world when it thought it was invincible. and when the people believed a president's promise more, i guess the of r t couple of gathers thought you're having a look at some of the biggest stories that are shaping up 2021. and thank you for joining us here for the program live from moscow. of course, this is our to international i, rural re sushi and i think you may have missed check out our website are to come with
a forced air chill. tristan's goal is to chose, again, one is with which one is already been the way to assess my william. let's use a curriculum that the keenest, that with a quarter of english to put him in junior was, wasn't dealing at the department of writing. that if he's excuse you machine that it not merely dumb watch with any getting here. no, i need to put that amount with the famous power to store and with
facts. kaiser's financial survival guide. housing, bravo. oh, you mean as a downside? artificially low mortgage ris, donkey carried away. what cause report ah ah. hello in welcome to cross stock. were all things considered? i'm peter lavelle. how is the economy working for you? we are told this is the time of the great reset and build back better. what does this mean to you? how does the green new deal play into this? it seems the richer only getting richer. but what about the rest of us?
i cross sucking the great reset. i'm joined by my guess jeffrey tucker in austin. he is the founder and president of brownstone institute in bristol, we have shante bar, she's the deputy leader of the workers party of britain in author of the drive to war against russia and china. and here in moscow were joined by tony ewing. he is managing director of conquer risk capital as well as advisory board member of our c investments. right cross sack rules and effect. that means you can jump in any time you want. and i always appreciate the 1st thing i want to ask all of you and i want to else. i'll start with jeffrey and in austin. what is the state of the economy as the pandemic is fading, of course, in a different parts of the world. it's there is different status of the pandemic, but as we it it, as it ebs here, where we standing or because the prognosis was the economy should roar once it was
unlocked from the lock downs. now there's different opinions of where we're going. jeffrey, you 1st, it's not a lock on the lock downs and, and we're suffering has result broken supply chance old world reports clogged and empty shelves, shortages high inflation and you know, an aggregate. but if you look at the individual sectors of construction or beef prices, bacon gas, you name it, americans are suffering dreadfully. hundreds of thousands of businesses were destroyed during the pandemic. they're not coming back. and now you've got the vaccine mandates that are being imposed through a regulatory, judicial, a c art and you've got the by the ministration, ignoring judges that are condemning them. so i'm telling you in my lifetime i've never seen such a sadness and chaos and brokenness across the board just a year term go ahead in bristol.
