US arming Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam & Malaysia — here’s how (Full show)

[Music] live from the world headquarters of rt america in our nation’s capital this is the news with rick sanchez hi everybody i’m rick sanchez i want to welcome our viewers from all over the world thank you guys for watching and to those of you who are watching us on your mobile device using the portable tv app i want to thank you for being part of our family so tonight the biden administration is taking over where the trump administration left off it it seems and i think it would be fair to say this it is doing all that it possibly can to further inflame the tensions with china by selling sophisticated weaponry to the chinese province of taiwan let me show you where that is and let’s talk about what’s going on in this region first of all mr biden is informing congress that he is sending taiwan 750 million dollars in military equipment and that is on top of the 1.8 billion that the trump administration approved just last year that means and let’s change this around so you can see what we’re talking about here that means taiwan military now possesses u.s f-16 fighters right fighter jets they’re also going to have m1a abrams tanks portable stinger anti-aircraft missiles mk-48 torpedoes but the u.s military expansion actually goes beyond taiwan it actually involves all the countries that’s around this south china sea that seems to be the buzzword uh these days so let’s look at it hey for example the philippines let’s look at the philippines the united states just completed a deal to send them 12 brand new f-16s at 64 million dollars apiece as well as harpoon missiles valued at 120 million dollars a piece sidewinder missiles as well valued at 42 million dollars i mean we’re just throwing a bunch of money at this area right to these countries all surrounding china let’s go to vietnam a country we were once infamously at war with they’re now interested and we’re now interested in selling and buying weapons and the u.s is only too happy to oblige with by the way it was president obama who was the first to clear the way for being able to get weapons u.s weapons into vietnam did you know that f-16s and apparently they’re interested in patrol boats as well with torpedoes let’s keep going this doesn’t end here let’s go to malaysia look what’s going on in malaysia a country that’s willing to buy on credit or even barter with palm oil to acquire as many u.s helicopter gunships as they can get and the united states is only too happy to give it to them by the way they’re also throwing in short-range missiles so let’s do this now let’s broaden the whole thing look at that picture look at this take take a look at this image and you can see what china is kind of up against and the way they why they china up there looking at all this right might be feeling you know i don’t know maybe a little provoked surrounded and maybe push to then build up its own military so let’s drill down on this here on the news with rick sanchez where we pay close attention to global trends like this first of all because nobody else is doing it and because we think it’s time to do news again [Music] hi everybody i’m rick sanchez and i want to do this for you now i want to also tell you that we think there are questions that will come to mind to you as you watch this for example is the u.s encircling china with high-tech weaponry and what’s going to be china’s breaking point here do we care why are airlines suddenly cancelling thousands of flights and what’s going to happen as france mandates vaccines for all government employees we’re going to look at all those things so get ready all right so look it doesn’t take a doctoral degree from an ivy league school to figure out what our country is doing in the area around the south china sea i mean it’s as plain as day that we are literally encircling china by sending warships and fighter jets and lots of missiles and we’re doing it so it’s right there right in their own backyard is this type of expansionism this military expansionism warranted and then we have to ask this question and this is really important and too often it doesn’t get asked to what end to what end joining us now from the ron paul institute is daniel mcadams who writes and studies u.s military expansionism is often quite critical of many of our foreign policy decisions and he’s joining us now to talk about this as i draw this daniel i know you’ve been talking about this for years but as i draw this picture and i let americans see exactly what we’re doing in the south china sea what what comes to mind for you what are your concerns at the ron paul institute well rick i think you’re being a little bit alarmist here i mean didn’t you hear that president biden is sending kamala harris to the region on a good whale tour so you know i don’t think there’s any reason to be concerned but this is going to be a problem you know she’s very well respected and liked and has a lot of international experience so uh you know maybe you need to take it a little bit easy all right but in all seriousness let’s do this i want you now to remove your tongue from your cheek and give me the real answer go ahead well you know uh a couple of things first of all america is back that’s the motto of dubai administration it does look a little bit like the old who song meet the new boss the same as the old boss when you look at it though and as you point out the trump administration i think they did a total of 13 billion dollars in weapons deals to taiwan uh what the u.s is trying to do is to drive a wedge between china and all the countries in the region who count china as a critical essential trading partner they’re trying to draw a wedge in between this that’s one thing on a geostrategic level but on the other on the other hand you have to look at this as yet more welfare for the rich well-connected people inside the beltway who who produce these weapons after all we do have a secretary of defense who was on the board of raytheon whose company stands to profit yet handsomely again for from another cold war so let’s talk about that because i think you just hit on something very interesting i just showed our audience all this massive high-tech weaponry that we’re building in all 50 states by the way and then putting around china and a lot of people are saying well it’s because we’re ready for uh to go to war with china we’re ready for uh world war iii when in fact it could be that the motivation is the more weapons we put around them the more then they build up their navy the more they build up their navy the more that we can then use the argument to go to congress and say we need more money to build more weapons and that’s when these guys that you’re referring to the guys at raytheon etc make the big bucks it’s a game that’s what my old friend chuck spinney called the self-licking ice cream cone that’s exactly what it is and it’s how washington has operated for decades it goes back to the cold war itself you know with the famous b team that that artificially uh increased the the assessment of the soviet military arsenal to the benefit of the us military contractor so it’s it’s nothing new the u.s needs an enemy that the war on terror is getting a little stale and so they’re looking to expand it to china but everything they’re doing is backfiring it’s ham-fisted you have the deputy secretary of state wendy sherman go over to china and demand a meeting with the chinese foreign minister who’s above her station and when she when she got there she bungled the meeting to the point where the chinese foreign minister said afterward you know america comes here and believes that it’s arguing from a position of of superiority and we just don’t accept that and we’re not going to accept it and frankly i don’t think china is is going to need to accept that uh position of the u.s what happened uh to the things that you and i used to see when you and i were younger men and we saw members of the media members of the establishment members of the u.s senate members of the u.s congress stand up people like ron paul and say what are we doing this is costing taxpayers an enormous amount of money there seems to be no end game i mean yeah the news with rick sanchez talks about this but that what the hell nobody else is why not why not daniel that’s just that’s a sad truth rick i mean the americans they don’t understand it but they’re the most propagandized people on earth uh you know at least in the in the former east in a communist world and i would guess probably even in cuba uh people know that the government is lying to them and they don’t accept anything that they’re being told to by the news media but the u.s americans do accept this you know there is a an increasing crisis in confidence in the news in the mainstream media in the us and i think that’s very very good news for us however there still is this sense that we are the nation the superior nation that everyone wants to attack and therefore we have to you know have this but in fact what it is it’s stealing from the middle class is stealing from middle america it’s stealing half our income to prop up people that are very very well connected and go through the revolving door between between government and the quote unquote private sector over and over again and each time they go up the ladder a little bit higher and get a little bit richer so i don’t want people to come away with the impression that you daniel mcadams are a weakling that you don’t believe that america should have a defense or that you know or that you’re somehow a fan of of communist china or anything like that so there is a moderate position one can take here without going to the extreme is that correct well the funny thing is there’s plenty to criticize about china i would criticize first of all social credit policy but interestingly enough the biden administration is importing that here in the united states with vaccine mandates and vaccine passports and all sorts of things so we’re importing all of the worst things about china and we’re ignoring some of the good things about china when china goes abroad it doesn’t take its military it takes trade contracts it goes overseas it goes to africa and it makes deals with countries and makes deals with businesses that’s what america used to be about doing business overseas not selling a bunch of dumb planes not intimidating people not putting bases in other people’s country we’ve got it all wrong we’re acting like the aggressors now and that’s not how it should be final question 30 seconds how concerned are you that a spark could cause a real conflagration in this part of the world very much so because the china hawks now feel in the beltway they feel that they’re in charge they’re pushing the binding administration to approve higher level talks between taiwanese and american officials they’re pushing the ladder they’re pushing for more benchmarks they’re pushing for a tripwire u.s presence on taiwan so they’re they’re going to keep ratcheting it up and that does give danger because the chinese are not going to back down this is their neighborhood imagine the chinese building bases and building alliances with mexico against us we wouldn’t like it very much either that’s a great point what a unique perspective so great being able to catch up with you again daniel we haven’t chatted in a while i’m so glad we did thanks my friend thank you rick great to be on your show if you thought airline travel was back well think again more than 4 000 flights have been canceled over the past two weeks as planes begin to fill up but airlines like american and spirit can’t seem to keep up with the demand add to that the weather issues and the lingering covid disruptions and what you have is chaos in the skies especially when passengers become unruly as they’re told to wear their masks throughout the entire flight announcement frustrated confused delayed cancelled those are the buzzwords heard most often at airports around the united states these days for the fifth straight day thousands of passengers left stranded some with no place to go i mean i’m here for vacation and our flight we’re just trying to get home and it just gotten canceled no reason for why it’s been canceled and now we’re just trying to figure out how can we get home spirit airlines canceled nearly 400 flights that’s half of its thursday schedule that means they’ve now canceled more than 1700 flights since last weekend american airlines has canceled or delayed 1500 flights airlines are blaming weather and other issues but it’s painfully obvious they don’t have enough staff to meet the sudden postcovid passenger rush speaking of covet then there’s the mask requirements which are making passengers unruly especially when they drink so just this week the faa asked airport lounges and restaurants to monitor alcohol intake passengers have been getting drunk repeatedly and this weekend juan is accused of groping two flight attendants his conduct eventually got so bad crews were forced to duct tape him to his seat a new report is now stating that one in five flight attendants have witnessed physical incidents with passengers this year most angry about having to wear masks it is why most airlines have stopped serving alcohol at least in the main cabin wow joining us now is uh lionel of lytle media he’s been looking at this situation as well and we all are kind of perplexed what the hell is going on i mean we’ve got stories of people groping flight attendants people throwing up in the aisles people fighting people being handcuffed on flights and flight attendants are pulling their own hair out lionel what’s the story here we this iteration of humanity is insane we are losing our minds do you know why rick you know why they don’t have bars at criminal psychiatric hospitals because you don’t want to give crazy people liquor now do you know where crazy people today hang out airports rick all my life i’ve never understood how this country deals with alcohol we’re the only country that well of many we say we don’t like drunk driving yeah we have parking lots at bars i was a prosecutor and i did i did more duis i ruined more lives of people because of alcohol and these people are told constantly it tastes great less filling and deep ladies nights sink or swim and then we say but don’t drink too much rick there has been booze all our lives rick o’hare i remember people talking about chicago’s o’hare nobody did this they had canceled flights they had everything there was a time rick when you and i remember where we would get dressed up to go on the plane there’s now an instagram have you ever seen passenger shaming on instagram people clipping their toenails we live in a zoo with all respect to to zoos and all we are losing our minds so when these crazy people go to the airport and get these bargain everest’s deregulation and they show up in flip-flops and bathing suits and they’re and they’re insane sure alcohol is not going to help but what you’re now going to do is are we going to have sobriety tests at the airport are you going to ask somebody who’s trying to make money serving we’re going to do what do i do the abc’s back and that’s the thing and i think part of the problem is they go to that little restaurant that little bar at your favorite uh you know airport uh and they get half cocked then they go on the plane and they want another drink and the flight attendant says sorry the coven situation you got to wear a mask you can’t do this you can so you’re basically stopping the person mid-ride and that’s when that frustration i imagine must be setting in there was more booze than remember when they had full course meals remember we were kids when you got to the airport what did they ask you what did they feed you they had champagne they had fish there was more booze then but you know what the difference is we’re crazy now it’s in the water with what they’re spraying i don’t know what years and years of inbreeding this iteration this version of human beings we are insane everywhere you go just look around if you were to play a mask that has nothing to do with it we’re nuts but is there something the airlines could be doing better is are they too staunch are they acting like disciplinarians aren’t they cool enough i mean what would you do well one of the things i would do is maybe have oh i don’t know more staff more planes and i swear to you you’re going to laugh at me i would have a dress code yeah you know when you tell people they can go from bed to the airport without with slippers i’m telling you it’s like the broken windows theory but rick more importantly we’re insane there’s something wrong with this we are devolving this is i mean if somebody from another planet came here right now and they said show me what show me what your planet is i got just the thing for you orc let’s go to the airport we’re gonna go to tia or miami or laguardia take a look at this and the best part is the airports today try to show you look at the glitz look how classy we are look we have oh we have fountains and the crazy it’s like cradmore creedmoor chattahoochee and bellevue all converging with these people out of their minds and alcohol is the least of the problem we are devolving as a species i can’t make it any clearer insane insane and in pajamas insane in the membrane indeed we appreciate your passion and a great conversation thanks so much i’m sure our viewers enjoyed it as well still ahead uh a cool story for you rt’s farron franzak is going to join us to tell us what makes you as a human being different from all the other living organisms on earth see scientists believe through dna they just found out what it is let me catch you up on what’s going on overseas uh we understand more than 200 000 people have demonstrated across france this has happened over the weekend they’re angry about some of the new laws that the government says it will use to force workers some workers not all government workers firefighters some medical uh workers caregivers certain soldiers must be vaccinated by september or they could be suspended without pay well that’s not sitting well with some here now is european correspondent peter oliver well the constitutional council which is the highest body in the land when it comes to matters of the constitution has ruled that the changes to the laws that were pushed through by parliament last month largely complies with the letter of the french constitution what that means is that from next week you’re going to have to show a health pass if you want to go into bars restaurants on long distance trains or even into medical centers that will contain more than 50 people what these health passes are is basically a qr code that says if you’ve been vaccinated what you’ve been vaccinated with and the results of any cover tests that have been carried out now they’re already in place when it comes to visiting museums and other cultural sites across france the extension was not supported by a large group of people that came out onto the streets it was supported by a large selection of the whole population though between 55 to 63 percent of those polls said they actually wanted this however it’s the small very vocal group like you can see just behind me on the square near to the constitutional council that are deeply unhappy with this one of the big reasons they’re deeply unhappy is that these rules also include mandatory vaccinations for healthcare workers now that also includes firefighters in france who are categorized as paramedics as well we had heard from firefighters unions excuse me as you can see as i said it’s a very small group they are incredibly vocal as you just heard there back to the firefighters though and what the firefighters unions have said is that had this gone through they were talking about strikes as soon as monday we’re gonna have to wait to see what their response to this is now it was talked about being largely compliant to the french constitution the rafter rules that went through what wasn’t supported by the constitutional council was the idea that people on short-term contracts who refused a vaccination could have their contracts terminated also that they could be forced into mandatory quarantines mandatory self-isolation that wasn’t approved by the constitutional council but in for the main part it has gone through there will be new rules in place we have seen the last three weeks unrest across france small scale in some places but over 200 000 people out on the streets of france last week we’re expecting even more to come out this saturday both across france and here in paris peter oliver reporting and handling very well we should say that woman who surprisingly came up behind him well done to a colleague well uh what makes us as human beings unique what makes us different for example than all the other uh animal species all life on this planet scientists think that they’ve nailed that down they think they’ve finally figured out something in particular about our uh dna that makes us so different and here uh to talk about this is our farron franzak who’s been following this story we saw this story uh yesterday and we’re so intrigued by it we asked you to find out what it’s all about so we say now what’s it all about so the findings show rick that humans are actually very it’s a very very young species that we are and only seven percent of our human dna is actually unique which is why scientists are turning away from that whole we’re very much different than our neanderthal ancestors so more so we’re actually a lot more alike than our neanderthal ancestors than previously thought so the question is is how did scientists figure this all out well what scientists did is they looked at dna from 279 people around the world and compared it to two neanderthal genomes and one denisovan genome between 40 and 50 thousand years ago now denisovan is just another subspecies of human they lived in modern day asia neanderthals lived in modern day europe scientists already knew that modern people share some dna with neanderthals but different people share different parts of the genome so to give you a little bit of a quick science lesson here in every normal every normal cell there’s 23 different chromosomes they all fix into a double helix which then unwound makes this kind of ladder shape you can see you know there’s a lot of different colors there which represent different chromosomes there’s only four there’s a c g t i said watered-down science class here now all of the letters they can be sequenced differently and there’s six billion different types of combinations of dna so the entire goal was to look at different parts of the dna makeup comparing the neanderthal dna and today’s human dna and then figure out what genes were exclusive to our dna today and the only problem is rick is that a lot of you know there’s a lot of parts missing from that dna sample so scientists actually were able to um develop a specific tool to fill in those gaps that’s when the puzzle was solved after all of these years everything that’s not a human being from the amoeba to the pig to the lion whatever the whale right uh they can’t reason right so what is the difference then between us and them the big thing is is our brains uh scientists figured this out by using brain models to look at these neurological functions to determine what was our human ancestors after the small split from our most closely related extinct relatives now and that’s where the brain kicked in sort of right now it’s one of those things you know congress you wouldn’t think so but uh we we do have brain function compared to our neanderthal ancestors but again we’re only seven percent different from our neanderthal ancestors who were around millions of years ago yeah zing zinger right now really just went after our members of uh congress there i mean it was proud it wouldn’t be news rick we wouldn’t be doing news again thanks fair and good stuff that’s our news thanks so much for being with us i’m rick sanchez we’ll be looking for you again right here and on portable tv when it’s time to do music you
