from moscow thanks for joining us the. hawkins wherever you are tonight's welcome to the program a british health regulators are warning people with a history of allergic reactions against taking the new coronavirus vaccine this comes after 2 people who received a far as a job suffered a reaction on day one of the u.k.'s mass vaccination program. any person with a history of a significant allergic reaction to a vaccine medicine or food should not receive the pfizer beyond vaccine very unfortunate news for pfizer and this is piling on to what we've already learned about deaths and side effects but in this instance 2 nurses became very ill. after being injected with the vaccine they were apparently they had a history of allergies and they're doing well now they're recovering but again this
8:02 pm
is something that somehow slipped clinical trials that people with previous conditions the history of severe allergies and reactions to allergies they are vulnerable they're vulnerable to the side effects tell us more about what the u.s. food and drug administration has revealed the problem is that we learned of these deaths not from pfizer whose very exceed the c's i mean you'd think that they're obligated to go public and to tell people be open and transparent about how their trials are doing how people are taking the vaccine you know these deaths 2 of the people who died received the jab while 4 of them politically cebu injection so they're saying that the vaccine is still safe they still believe it's safe it is effective. and that these deaths were it is unlikely that these deaths were caused by the vaccine a total of 6 of unrolled participants died during the reporting period all deaths
8:03 pm
represent advance that occur in the general population of the age groups where they occurred at this similar rate well they believe that they're part of the statistical norm obviously you know we learn that people with severe allergies shouldn't take the prize of vaccine only today and after the fact of the vaccination public vaccination had gotten which is you know. alarm bells and people ought to know you know what they're getting into but the problem. here is that there's there's seems to be a lack of communication from. the press and bear in mind the visor never published in open sources never published in medical journals but peer review the data that it gathered throughout the clinical trial so they really gave that to to various officials and watchdogs. greenlighted their vaccine and what else is there to be found in the f.d.a. as reported well the other scary thing i would say that has struck people and cause some concern is the side effects notably one side effect which is.
8:04 pm
paralysis it is a condition and not a lot known about what causes it but for people so there were 2 test groups the placebo test group and the test group that received the actual vaccine the interesting thing about these side effects is that nobody from the placebo group experience that nobody should any symptoms while 4 people in the group that received the real vaccine display these symptoms of partial thinks will paralysis among non-serious unsolicited adverse events there was a numerical imbalance of 4 cases of bell spell seen in the vaccine group compared with no cases on the placebo group though the 4 cases in the vaccine group do not represent a frequency above that expected in the general population. they've already dismissed these concerns saying this new scientific link between. may merely an anomaly why by some people suffered from these symptoms and others didn't do. a group or test
8:05 pm
group this large tens of thousands of people somebody with or without a vaccine should have experience that you have just statistics but you know it's piling on top of each other to these deaths these side effects and now we learn that people with severe allergies if they take the vaccine obviously it must be it is understood that every call to was cut safely they believe had to be cut to get a room to rule a vaccine out quickly as possible to get a vaccine out now before the end of the year less than a this is a process that usually takes decades it could take decades years at least to study the effects of the vaccine to study how people take it through throughout the years you know how it affects them and their life and obviously that didn't happen because of the agency because of the huge worldwide to get this vaccine out and to see it successful vaccine return the world to more or less normal so very you know
8:06 pm
a sense that people should approach vaccination with abundant caution. just want to shut off about it or not he says the news raises questions about the new job. it is. mostly want you need to buy the space and release company summit corp it was they are so what do they get by how the. owner market doesn't always work there she orders behind the scenes that execution economic interests be sorry i'm going to see tonight are divorced and those we have heard in the case of the astra zeneca i see in the star city are things that we did do and not only reports of i want to don't you go but now in new delhi or talking about big asians are used in all the suffering from memphis to the area and energy. issues and that doesn't suit you so i mean it could be. these are our serious things they should be so that investigated this is not
8:07 pm
only a thing that the woman should know before the order. a sequence but also the party has to be formed children to make you a decision as to whether or decency. donald trump to sign an executive order ensuring americans have priority when it comes to access the vaccines produced in the u.s. both from by and president elect joe biden a confidence about the prospects of mass vaccination signed the executive order to ensure that american citizens have 1st priority to receive american vaccines and then we're going to be working with other countries all over the world this team will help get at the latest at the last 100000000 covert 19 vaccine at least 100000000 covert vaccine shots into the arms of the american people in the 1st 100 days 100000000 shots in the 1st 100 days list wake the vaccine is expected to become the 1st to be approved for use in the us supplies they will be
8:08 pm
limited to as many doses have already been shipped abroad edible pin explains. pop u.s. officials are reassuring us that there's enough vaccine to go around and every american can get a jab hundreds of millions of doses will be available every month and we expect to have enough vaccines for every american but by the end of march early april enough across all of our vaccine portfolio to have for every american who would like to be vaccinated 100 percent of americans that want to baxi will have vaccine by that point time although not everyone is going to take it. really. kind of the kind of i mean it's nice to have a choice isn't it well as trump rolls out his vaccines for americans 1st policies
8:09 pm
there are mounting fears that washington will not be able to deliver on its promises a white house summit expected to celebrate the victory of the jab had 2 key guests missing pfizer and madonna pfizer is reported to have told the trumpet administration that it cannot provide additional doses of the coded 19 vaccine until mid 2021 they say other countries beat the united states and bought up the supply global justice now by u.k. based group reported back in november that 80 percent of pfizer's vaccine over 1000000000 doses had already been sold the buyers some of the wealthiest governments around the world now the usa did get some but only 100000000 vaccines the u.s. government placed an initial order over 100000000 doses for pfizer beyond techs covered 900 and pfizer is ready to begin ship an initial dose
8:10 pm
a soon after receiving an emergency use authorization from the u.s. food and drug administration any additional doses beyond the 100000000 subjected to separate. in mutually acceptable agreement rumors are circulating that after that pfizer offered to sell more to the united states but trump said no deal now the white house denies that let's do the math pfizer says you need 2 doses per person so $100000000.00 vaccines covers only $50000000.00 people roughly 15 percent of the u.s. population but u.s. officials say they checked the numbers and there won't be any shortage we're confident that it will have one $100000000.00 doses of pfizer's vaccine is agreed to a contract and beyond that we have 5 other vaccine candidates including $100000000.00 just on the way from london so what does this america 1st document really mean pfizer privately funded its work without u.s. government support so washington cannot force its will to be 1st on the company and
8:11 pm
its free to sell its backplane across the planet private property and free markets something that america loves her human rights groups of warning of an upcoming shortage of covert vaccines in poor countries a report by the people of vaccine alliance which includes amnesty international and oxfam found will few nations have reserved enough vaccines to cover their populations 3 times over until the end of next year as a result only one in 10 people in the 70 poorest countries will have access to cobra jobs the group is a big pharma giants to share their intellectual property the firms to produce the drugs at the low cost coated you don't discuss the issue with oxfam smack slawson. you know it would be a suicidal politician who did not look after his own citizens our point is we do not think it's acceptable for rich countries like the united states for the united kingdom to protect the profits and the intellectual property and the monopoly of these big pharmaceutical companies so that they have enough vaccine for themselves
8:12 pm
but they don't allow vaccination for the world all the leading candidates that we're hearing. were funded using taxpayers' money these are public property and not the proper to private trying to be a lot of old versus real is an if you're going to give away your intellectual property you've got these big big companies who are spending billions or you're saying that from the public purse as well but what incentive do they actually have to do all that work bring it to market and then just give it away it's not going to happen as it everyone makes their money no one is going to give these things away for free that's the point the point is the intellectual property and the barriers that puts up on behalf of these big pharmaceutical companies need to enormous profit why beyond what is reasonable and in this situation is public money in the public good i think as to the months unfold and we see rich nations making their populations and we still see many many people dying in poor countries so the
8:13 pm
pressure on the brands of these pharmaceutical firms the kind of moral arguments are we think we can move beyond a profit tax in into a people's vaccine which is always in the in the interest of the global economy it doesn't make sense to us to kind of hobble we global economy in the interest of protecting the profits a few firms. social media giant facebook won't be hitting the like button over news it's being sued by almost every state in the us and to trust concerns the country's federal trade commission has filed a lawsuit that's pushing for a breakup of the company legal action targets facebook's acquisition of the instagram what's up platforms. facebook has maintained its monopoly position by buying up companies that present competitive threats and by imposing restrictive policies that unjustifiably into actual will potential rivals to facebook does not school can also acquire or facebook is really coming under fire now that it is
8:14 pm
facing an anti-trust lawsuit from the state's attorneys general of $48.00 different states across the united states the allegation that's being made in this lawsuit essentially states that facebook has violated the law and violated competitive behavior during its acquisition in the early 201314 of instagram and whatsapp at the time that facebook acquired instagram it had about 30000000 users today it has over a 1000000000 users worldwide at the time that it acquired facebook said that instagram wasn't really a competitor but today instagram has become very much a competitor to facebook and fully integrated into the facebook system for advertising data collection of users and even cross promotion of post here's what some of those states attorneys general had to say about the lawsuit today we are sending a clear and strong message to facebook and every other company that any efforts to stifle competition and hurt small businesses reduce innovation and creativity will
8:15 pm
be met with the full force of our offices the f.t.c. filed their own lawsuit against facebook today as well. and we look forward to collaborating with them in the litigation process that what makes this lawsuit very different than the antitrust action that was brought by the department of justice against google earlier this year in the united states is that during the antitrust action against google the u.s. government said that it had no prescription is prescribed no actual solution to the problem but in this case things are very different in this case the state's attorneys general are calling for an actual divestment of instagram and whatsapp what does that mean it means that if these states attorneys general when their lawsuit they would force. facebook to actually sell off the assets of whatsapp and instagram a very big deal in the tech world. still to come this hour show bawden calls controversy as he picks a retired general with a questionable middle east record to be his defense secretary lew details on most
8:16 pm
lorries briefly. the global free up money ponzi scheme has hit the my 1st i missed out collapsing like bernie made off collapsed and now we're going back to poverty so the answer is always bad you need actual sound money like gold but of course that doesn't work so much as big coin does and what will happen is they'll be hundreds of millions and billions of people in the world that'll say to their central bank and their their nation state government they'll say you know we're not interested in money we just want to have our own money have our own peace of mind and you can go it.
8:17 pm
seemed wrong. just don't hold. me to that he's yet to shape out these days because that's ok and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. welcome back to the program muslim groups in france of lashed out at the government over a new bill which targets islamic radicalism the measures follow a wave of terror attacks across the country will make it easier to stop mosques receiving foreign aid and offer more protection from moderate community leaders shot of whisky has this report from paris. it was presented to the council of ministers on wednesday and it has now been approved by the prime minister care sticks was giving his press conference following that outlining parts of the bill
8:18 pm
he said that this is about promoting republican values fighting against separatism that has been something that has been coming from certain parts of the muslim community here in france the largest muslim community in europe and the prime minister said that france has to defend itself and it has to emancipate its citizens from the yoke of religion. guy radical islam islam is an ideology directed to dividing people and spreading hatred and violence in society faced with this the republic intends to defend itself by local authorities now will have more power to deal with religious venues where they say there is hate speech coming from them whether there is a call to violence this bill will also fight against clandestine schools and it will make homeschooling much much more difficult the idea of ensuring that all children have access to their right
8:19 pm
a right to education we know that doctors issue virginity certificates will now face prison and fines possibly as well and we know that the religious associations will now have to declare foreign funding now muslims have long criticized this law it's been debated for the last few months saying that they are unfairly targeted by it and in fact this war has already provoked a huge reaction in some muslim majority countries who've also been unhappy about the fact that president mackarness defended the fact that blasphemy is not illegal here in france now islamic scholars have described president macaroons views as being racist while the turkish president talked about this law specifically and said that it was open provocation for micron as a burden on. france macron and france are going through a very dangerous period actually my hope is that france gets rid of this macross trouble as soon as possible but some here in france see that this law doesn't go
8:20 pm
far enough they say that there needs to be a real declaration on a war against islam ist separatism here in france so there will be a huge amount reaction to this this bill now after being approved by the council of ministers will go to the parliament in 2021 where it will be debated and i'm sure those debates are going to be incredibly heated as well the reaction on the street . and others on tahrir province people who refuse supposedly voluntary vaccination is the covert mine team could face a number of restrictions as the warning of the province's health minister there may be some restrictions in terms of travel or other restrictions that may arise as a result of not having a vaccination but that's going to be up to the person themselves to make their decision on the basis of what's more important to them health officials remarks come amid concerns that people will be made to have the job your thought is their
8:21 pm
insisting that vaccination will be voluntary earlier canada's prime minister announced the country would receive its 1st bo's of pfizer's vaccine next week political analyst that is under bruno says the threat restrictions of an ideal way to make people trust in a boxing. i think. forcing people to be vaccinated with the. premise that we've heard in ontario is not the best way to persuade the population to consider being vaccinated in fact it is the worst way to do it especially now that we are in the very early stages of the rollout of the vaccine nobody has been vaccinated yet and at any rate the 1st people who will be back to need it will be medical staff and personnel in high risk places for example or the jones and. other similar facilities so
8:22 pm
i think the terrio health minister position was irresponsible in fact because i myself become even more. concerned about this. us president elect joe biden has chosen a retired general as his defense secretary if approved by the senate 67 year old lloyd austin would become the 1st african-american to head the pentagon i chose lloyd austin is my nominee for secretary of defense because he will do whatever it takes to defend the american people when the islamic state emerged as a terrorist threat in iraq and syria president obama and i turn to austin who then lead u.s. central command he designed and executed a campaign that ultimately beat back isis lost and served under the obama administration leading the u.s. central command it was the main military architect of the u.s. led offensive against islamic state in syria and iraq is wider remembered for
8:23 pm
admitting half a $1000000000.00 training program in syria had failed back in 2015 it was shut down after producing literally a handful of trained fighters instead of the several 1000 planned. can you tell us what the total number of trained fighters remains it's a small number. the ones that are in the fight. is we're talking 445 so is that still the goal to have about $12000.00 of them there is that still the goal what's the expectation then for them at the pace we're gone we won't reach the goal that we had initially starbucks for sure but but but. the overall goal is to make sure that we have enough mass to be able to get work done on the ground in while a potential stumbling block for lloyd austin his candidacy is the fact you know we're tired 4 years ago u.s. law states an officer must have left the service at least 7 years before becoming
8:24 pm
secretary of defense senior research fellow at the global policy institute george someone evo thinks exceptions will be made to the rules don't all markers begin trumps the defense secretary also had this horrible and he overcame it without too much difficulty of course there was senators that time was there that this is just one or are we not going to do this again you know we really mean it this time but we don't have to take it very seriously so having said all that matters they're not likely to turn around and. make difficulties or austin but they could really. be honest about it i mean the. would be the 1st black man who would be head of the pentagon so i don't think anyone with any hurdles in his way. you know mosques space x. thought a project or suffered a setback after a prototype exploded while attempting to land incident happened on wednesday

8:29 pm
shims my friends things are not going well in trump country this week not only has the brand name and rudy giuliani the mr smeaton his captain hook get struck down and hospitalized with coded but trump also saw his own hand-picked supreme court viciously strike down the 1st wave of the president's legal efforts to reverse the results of the you know member election but now the united states house of representatives in a supposedly betoken jordi passed the over $740000000000.00 national defense authorization act and yet another act of defiance to the now lame duck president you see trump had made it abundantly clear that he would veto the bill a if it did not remove a provision to rename military bases name for can better at generals yeah because apparently we need to keep that and it should also have included
8:30 pm
a repeal of section 230 s. liability protection for social media companies. naturally the donald is none too plus as the n.d. double a now waits a vote in the senate where it will more than likely get passed through the democrat out of washington representative adam smith the chairman of the house armed services committee gloriously amounts to throw up on high but today the house sent a strong bipartisan message to the american people our service members and our national security are more important than politics yes far more important than politics they are and apparently far more important than the american people as well because while congressional democrats and republicans apparently can come together and sing kumbaya over handing the military industrial complex more than 740000000000 of our tax dollars they just they just can't seem to find the money or the time to pass a bill to protect and for.
