[000:00:00;00] ah, global pandemic, big profits. we examine how farmer giants had another very closely followed settlement between deceased convicted sex offender, jeffrey epstein, and his accuser virginia. do free has been made public that the head of a critical hearing involving the british royal families. prince andrew, also ahead. 19 years and 10 months and $25.00 days on. this is america's legacy. are they looked back at one of the defining moments of last year. the u. s. withdrawal from afghanistan, which brought the country to the brink of collapse
8:01 pm
with just gone for i am here in the russian capital. thank you for joining us here or not international. my name's peter scott covey. cases have searched in the united states with the weekly average, surpassing 360000. and throughout the pandemic, the world health organization has dressed. the only way forward is to box it must vaccination. and one knock on effects of that big profits for big pharma. 3 companies, pfizer, beyond tech, a madonna between them, a reportedly been breaking in over $90000000.00 a day. is our c, saskia taylor 2021 beer. we discovered that reading 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 mark
8:02 pm
a majority of which is their cobra. 1900 vaccine, of course, $1000.00 every 2nd, pfizer buy on tech and moto now made $1000.00 every 2nd. but it turns out that drug companies like to pump 2 pills at once, money and power and were better to wield one's power than in washington. d. c. introducing congress says biggest lobbyist, big pharma, which last year dropped a cool $266000000.00 to sway american lawmakers, though given how the holy trinity of fires and madonna biotech was averaging over 900000000 a day last yet it's really just loose change less than 3 days. walk in fact, for the rest of us though, it's an awful lot. you know what? there's also an awful lot of in the u. s. capital big pharma lope. 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 they want. this is
8:03 pm
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 pharmaceutical giant 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 and 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
8:04 pm
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 that, new jersey, senator bald mendez. you know, how much menendez is pocketed from the drug, sloppy 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 pharma will spend due and say whatever it takes to defeat any legislation that it will curb its unilateral power to dictate prices of prescription drugs. apparently the big pharma roles that leave almost one in for americans unable to afford that regular medication is necessary.
8:05 pm
because while reef touch, we have an obligation to ensure that the sale of our medicines provide us with the resources necessary to invest in future research and development. and while the lobbies $1000000.00 ad failed billboard, patrice on the rocks anyway. so fingers crossed, you know, what came as a real shock, other than politicians, putting money for people and pharmaceutical joints. not caring about public health . the fact that big pharma plays dottie 1st drug companies have raised prices with abandon, especially when they succeed in delaying a blocking competition, in some cases, tied to higher pay for executives. second, companies have manipulated the peyton system and marketing exclusivity is to extend their monopolies. 3rd, all the companies, the committee investigated, have employed anti competitive strategies to suppress generic competition. really does no one i'd rather have in control of like saving medication. also,
8:06 pm
it wouldn't be matter. the pandemic costs are just a little while longer. they got on a pass 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 on big pharma harder walk in d. c, save lives, solving the people and showing each and every day that there's no drug, more addictive than money. power. and everything in between. moscow has lashed out to the u. k. after leaked documents revealed the britain plans to spend millions of pounds to promote its agenda and influence society in russia. the papers, supposedly, from the british foreign office, were published by the investigative group undecided on its website. russia's foreign ministry spokesman brought down the trove of data that was exposed. the under side archives contain dozens of documents with project descriptions. lists of names are going is ations and all of the accounting fraud. the numbers boggled
8:07 pm
imagination more than one point. 3000000000 roubles have been allocated for the period from 2020 to 2020 free to finance programs to influence public organizations . and for them, government agencies and transform the course of russia in the direction. great britain needs well earlier my colleagues, nicky, are in and what we say thought through the developments. what we have here is a trove of legal documents that are being published on line by this group on the side, appearing to reveal this valve network of n jose to receive grants. so funding from the british or authorities for dozens of projects within russia, the most sensational revelations here is the creation of a toe horse, $25.00 elite who could go on for leadership roles. it could be passive, strategic change within russia. according to the documents, the aim would be to work with tensions within the country. now, if accurate, these are, of course,
8:08 pm
serious accusations. say we're talking about russia accusing the u. k. of meddling . and it's internal affairs. and usually, as we know, the series on the other 1st, it's usually other countries accusing russia of meddling like the u. k. accused rush of meddling in the elections and 2919 for example. now in light of these revelations, the foreign ministry spokesman, maria harris has the keys, london of increasing polarization within russia. let's take a listen. the british are directly spending money on the build up of the internal political situation in the country. how else to explain the existence of a grant plan that involves sponsoring involvement in demonstrations and political rallies, as well as mentioning the growth of social tension and the reservation of society. now these lead documents also appears reveal a focus on the promotion of the l g. b, t q plus a culture pushing for acceptance in russia. also, the documents describe russia as homophobic is particularly unfriendly to this community. but, you know, we're just a few days ago the black person was doing his big annual speech to,
8:09 pm
to the press into the public, to open up a 4 hours this time and put and said, quote, if some, if someone thinks that a women and men are the same thing then be my guest, but there is common sense. let me put and said, i stick to the traditional approach that a woman is a woman, a man is a man. a mom is a mom, and dad is a dad. i mean, some like cool that a traditional society, a traditional culture in society in russia. this art of, however, describes russia as homophobic and unfriendly. exactly, exactly. but as these documents revealed, the aim of each of these projects is to deliver a change within russia. also listed in the document via one of these programs, russian and jose would be encouraged to rehabilitate to support migrant entering russia illegally. there's also talk of a change to the system of training lawyers, and this is all across russia and my time now talking about based groups, which had made these revelations that publish these documents on the side, we don't know too much about this group as yet. however, with such remarks,
8:10 pm
when the foreign ministry spokesman is looking like it's something which is being taken very seriously. now, so far, london has not commented on the issue. we have sent them an email, however, that the email inbox is full apparently, which is very unfortunate. however, when we do receive a response, we will of course, bring you up to speed. in the meantime, maria, the however, is urging the u. k. to respond one way or the other. the british for an office has only one way out to publicly declare that all this is fake misinformation. and of course highly likely what you can says that there are plans to interfere in the internal affairs of russia. repent changed tank to yellow submarine, and lay low in bruges. while like i say, we're going to have to wait to see how the u. k. responds to the revelations that are being published in the website and then we'll take it from the details of a settlement between convicted sex offender jeffrey epstein. and one of his accuses the junior do free be made public the movie parts of mr. fees and sexual abuse
8:11 pm
lawsuit against britain prince andrew kell. moping picks up the story. while we now have the documents and they do not mention the name of prince andrew and make no references to royalty, these documents have been made public prior to the day in which a decision will be made about whether or not charges against prince andrew will be dismissed now, prince andrew faces charges for sexual battery, and it's alleged by virginia roberts, you fray that she had sex with him when she was 17 years old and was forced into doing so prince andrew denies these allegations. now it's important to note there have been many developments around the jeffrey epstein case recently we saw the conviction of delane maxwell, the british socialite, who was convicted of having worked with jeffrey epstein to traffic miners for sex. and she was convicted of 5 counts of abusive minors in court. and she has been
8:12 pm
accused of essentially sex traffic and girls for epstein and his friends, which included a row of elite for defense at the trial, argued that she was being made to pay for the crimes committed by jeffrey epstein. now there's been widespread media speculation that if she comes forward and accept responsibility for her actions and then proceeds to name names of those who participated in these activities with jeffrey epstein, that she could get a much lighter sentence that remains to be seen. what will take place in the lead up to her sentencing? now it's important to note that it's not only prince andrew that faces allegations virginia roberts to fray has also accused a harvard professor and prominent lawyer in the united states. so we'll be waiting to see what further developments take place and what big revelations could remain down the pike as the saga surrounding the scandal of jeffrey epstein continues. well, earlier we spoke with us journalist chadwick moore,
8:13 pm
who stated obscene legal deal with you free will it failed to absolve a defendant before. this is an agreement that jeffrey epstein settled with virginia robertson, 2009. she received $500000.00 to basically relinquish any sort of future responsibility into it specifically says the associate attorneys, employees, etc. now it doesn't name prince andrew affectively, but disagreement was used by alan dirty, which is a very famous lawyer here in united states to absolve him. so of a case that, that virginia roberts brought forth again, 70 brought up disagreement and the judge dismissed it. prince andrew is hoping this agreement will also absolve him, a being served by virginia roberts and tomorrow the judge in new york will decide whether or not the case can go forward. now, it's difficult, we don't really see all the document that's involved here. it's going to be really
8:14 pm
up to the judges discretion. this whole epstein saga has really exposed how the elite and how many will be parker people. the world have been protected for a long time against things like this still ahead in the program by major. well, how it says made a joint statement bargain to prevent the spread of nuclear. it comes amid tends towards between nate, so and russia over ukraine, that story and more after this short break in the ah ah
8:15 pm
. as we continue looking at the hearing review in the year ahead, bringing in the all star desks from all over the world. we've got a great one today, stacy, it's charles hugh smith. oh, of 2 minds that com ah welcome back to the program. i've got some remains on the brink of a humanitarian disaster. millions of facing star vision as winter temperatures plummets,
8:16 pm
and the country's economy is on his knees shrinking by almost half in recent months . last summer's hasty u. s. military exits, so tragic scenes unfold. ah, thousands of off guns tried to flee the country during and after the us evacuation it led to chaotic scenes, its cobbles airport, as well as panic across the capitol ortiz, the senior correspondence mod z of was there at the time in 2001. it began with, with righteousness and pomp, invade of gaston 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
8:17 pm
a ruin and still in control of the taliban. 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 over the taliban. to taliban flat, the end of the taliban. talent and leadership on the run. and now the question is, how do you handle that success? ah ah, it, it wasn't supposed to be this way. the taliban wasn't supposed to sweep the country in me a 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 announced
8:18 pm
a timeline for drawing down our forces. we are working to finally and america's longest war is timed and for evermore. america's 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. for united states ended 20 years of war in afghanistan for longest war and american history completed one of the biggest air lists 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, the ability to do it. and we did it today. where was the afghan army, where it was the west and backed government? where did all the money go?
8:19 pm
the united states sunk more than a $100000000000.00 in the rebuilding of data stock for reference adjusted for inflation. that is more than the united states spent on the marshal 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 fads 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, afghanistan 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,
8:20 pm
ah. ah. the taliban now has more black hawk helicopters than 85 percent of countries in the world. ah, how kinda an isis k still exist in our growing and afghanistan, and eventually they acquire these weapons. ah, we now have americans stuck in afghanistan to tell van in charge the smoke more weaponry they've ever had in the past of order that is,
8:21 pm
of the taliban now controls more of the country than it did before. the us invaded its new government these field with one dynamo, bay inmates and terror, released magpie dean, who even have american bounties on their heads. what washington achieved was the absolute opposite of what had intended. the bombing at campbell 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 heard 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
8:22 pm
when the people believed a president's promise more, i guess they of archie couple of galveston. ah. the use of nuclear weapons as a deterrence of war was reiterated on monday. in a statement between 5 nuclear states, russia, the u. s. britain, france on china. they made a call to adhere to the existing agreements, which work on the premise that nuclear conflicts can be nothing but disastrous. we declare that the can we know when is in a nuclear war and it should never be unleashed. we also turn the nuclear weapons as long as they continue to exist, she served defensive purposes to turn aggression and prevent war. we believe that the further proliferation of such weapons should be prevented. according to the document, the countries declare the commitment to the nonproliferation treaty, which is one of the pillars of nuclear weapons control, is just one of a number of agreements ensuring global security. the u. s. previously called alarm
8:23 pm
by withdrawing from core deals, including the anti ballistic missile and open skies treaties. we spoke with anti war activist brian becker. you said the new agreement fails to accurately convey u. s. foreign policy. the u. s. nuclear posture review undertaking during the trap administration in 2018 reaffirms that the u. s. will not give up the 1st use capability. and the 1st us prerogatives and that have been the cornerstone of us nuclear doctrine. since 945, i think it's just a smoke screen. i think they want, it's like going to church on sunday and putting your hand on the bible and, and professing your love of, of all of the 10 commandments and going up the next day and killing somebody and say, but remember, i'm a good christian. i went to, i went to church on sunday. i think it's like that. it's really just a thin veneer,
8:24 pm
a big leave to mask the real us policy, which is to gain dominance, including the dominance with nuclear weapons in outer space. this is a family, this should not be taken seriously. this is just camouflaged on the part of the united states. the renewed call for nuclear stability comes amid an escalation intentions between nato and russia. moscow in the alliance had been at loggerheads over ukraine's position as a potential member of nato. russia has consistently denied the plan to attack ukraine and says the build up of troops within his borders, a just part of routine military exercises. there are plans for a series of meetings this month to find a diplomatic solution to what russia sees as western encroachments on its borders. in light of the developments, brian beckett says the u. s. is arts in provocatively. i don't think it can be more dangerous right now. i mean, what the u. s. is doing is pressing against russia's border with advanced troops
8:25 pm
and provocation. such that the stage is being said for the integration of ukraine into nato. that would bring nato a nuclear alliance. with advanced nuclear and conventional weapons in a threatening way, that means the united states is in fact, preparing for major power conflict with russia. seems like insanity because it is. but again, the pentagon is acting again with craziness. in israel, a navy helicopter has with a clue, cru, 3 has crushed during a training flight. 2 pilots were killed while the 3rd crew member has made it out alive with what the military describe is moderate injuries. he is now in hospital receiving treatment. these really a 4th, a subsequently grounded helicopters that are the same as the one. the crushed an old chinese flies a suspended until further notice. over in iran, american and his bailey flags of being burned in to run on the 2nd anniversary of
8:26 pm
the assassination of general cassim. solely mani. he was killed in iraq by a drone strike, an order of the then u. s. president, donald trump irradiance regards to the money as a hero. he was battling against terrorism. and on monday iran value to a venge for the generals assassination. unless donald trump is put on trial for the killing, severe flooding has forced thousands in indonesia to flee their homes. at least one person is dead with streets and businesses in on data that caused massive destruction and lum slides and drivers in an argentinian province of how to navigate through dense smoke from wildfires. thankfully no casualties have been reported. but emergency services struggling to contain the 5 that have been burning in the country for weeks. that's all for now, but i'll be back again in just over 30 minutes with another round up of the latest
8:27 pm
. thank you for watching. ah ah ah, is your media a reflection of reality in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? high selection community? are you going the right way or are you being led to somewhere? which direction? what is true? what is great? in the world corrupted, you need to descend, ah,
8:28 pm
join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. while our officers are facing an increasingly dangerous environment, we are seeing a growing debate about so called warrior cops. the term that i've heard in the militarization of police. this is an amber vehicle. we acquired the 1033 program, very free program and the government program that follows military property that is no longer use to local law enforcement. we're building an army over here and i can't believe the people i see and feel a little bit here. yeah. think of terrorism here because it again a feeling that hey, you have to deal with our practice who you putting in a uniform cover bands is a powerful thing. and sometimes like money in play tricks and people mind they think they go bad. know is, the walk is out the door very bad. johns are telling good news. you have job
8:29 pm
security because the world desperately needs that you have people who are all those driven by dreamers shaped bankers and those with there's things we dare to ask in ah, with the on the little go i did that. that's a joke. i need to go to, i said, this is a bushy church deal to me. where to me is
