1:03 am
officials as a consequence of their actions i've also signed an executive order authorizing new measures including sanctions to address specific harmful actions that russia has taken against u.s. interests well the man seems to be abundantly clear at least for ones right well he would have been had he not led into these sanctions announcement with this. united states is not looking to kick off a cycle of skule should be in conflict with russian we want a stable predictable relationship so introducing penalties against more than 30 russian individuals and entities as well as expelling 10 russian diplomats all on the same day is said to put russia u.s. relations into a positive trajectory not my words that's the biden diplomacy trademark these signals are not just mixed in terms of consistency they're on par with noises from
1:04 am
space joe biden was counsel joe biden said he's interested in the normalization of russian u.s. relations but the actions of his administration show us the opposite that is the u.s. is not ready to deal with the reality of it multiple shot at only which shot at it possibility of american hedge monia instead they can sanctions and interference in our internal affairs just this week biden and putin talked over the phone to during the conversation the us president and now a new batch of sanctions in putin's face only to express hope later for a stable and predictable way forward and the white house sees no problem here no discrepancy forget proof for good reason forget who's president even biden strategy is to bully a country out of geopolitical relevance and it seems that's the only predictable thing about america left after all trumps anti russia sanctions galore that appears
1:05 am
to his whole term didn't save the ex-president from being shamed for being soft on russia so maybe biden is resorting to nuclear options right away desperately trying to keep one foot in the door though the door leading to that positive trajectory if you recall when donald trump was 1st elected he was adamant he was going to improve the us i really shouldn't be. with putin and with moscow but a majority of opinion in the white sows the united states military united states security and american elites in general is in favor of this hard line of encouraging a new cold war so unified in was being our friend which was cheated in suggesting talks the majority of the american people who matter in the united states the people rule the united states are insistent on this cold war agenda with russia does seem that biden agree to have this summit and we seem to be you know looking towards some sort of solution particularly towards the build up military buildup at
1:06 am
least create as no take in this hard to stunts which turn out help the process of trying to resolve matters it is to train and cannot help improve relations to moscow washington and other western powers. while unveiling a raft of sanctions against russia the use of ministration also mentions reports of bounties offered to the taliban and the delay by russia to attack u.s. troops in afghanistan the story surfaced last year it was picked up by joe biden to viciously attack former president trump during the presidential race but now the white house admits it doesn't have conclusive evidence of that happening again is still demanding answers from the kremlin. we felt the reports were enough of a cause of concern they assessed with low to moderate confidence as you alluded to that russian intelligence officers start to encourage taliban attacks against u.s. and coalition personnel in afghanistan so while there's a lot of moderate assessment of these reports we felt it was important for our
1:07 am
intelligence community to look into it this information really puts the burden on russia and the russian government to explain their engagement here in june last year former president donald trump was under intense pressure when it was reported russian intelligence offered taliban militants bounties to kill u.s. troops in afghanistan and 2019 was also religious the term per the information long before it was released the pentagon said that it could not corroborate the reports or trump himself rubbish the claims as a hoax insult the mainstream media from jumping on the trump bashing bandwagon vladimir putin is offering for the scalps of american soldiers in afghanistan now the european intelligence official called this callous shocking and reprehensible overnight president trump dismissed the intelligence denied being briefed on it as new reports emerged saying those payments did in fact lead to the death of americans meanwhile joe biden has announced the withdrawal of all u.s. and nato troops from afghanistan by mid september saying that it's time to end the
1:08 am
forever war the taliban's reacted angrily is that a degree to an earlier exit with donald trump to 2 decades of war with the terrorist group still active our senior correspondent ryan goes the of looks at what the pullout will mean for the country. joe biden says this is it the end of the afghan war no more extentions apart from well these last one until september we cannot continue the cycle of extending or expanding our military presence in afghanistan hoping to create ideal conditions for the drawn and expecting a different result according to the deal struck between trump and the taliban america was supposed to be gone in a couple of weeks time by may 1st but the president the new president claimed that didn't give him enough time the new date is symbolically september 11th and the thousands of u.s. and nato troops on that date will have left in light of this and recognizing that
1:09 am
there is no military solution to the challenges of ganesan faces and lies have determined that we will start their withdrawal of the residents are told mission full says by may fast new d.n.a. to wants to be in afghanistan nobody but they went to do a job to make sure that al qaida and its ilk never make it home again and the only thing worse than staying in afghanistan is leaving before that job is done which has the potential to cost 20 years of war and bloodshed and effort to the when our common goal is clear afghanistan should never again service a haven for terrorists to attack our whole nouns. so our presence is conditions based while no our ally wants to stay in afghanistan longer than necessary we will not leave before the time is right it's the us government itself
1:10 am
is divided and i'm on a to germany for example which previously opposed the withdrawal czech republic came out and said that this is the wrong decision but that they'll pull out in solidarity leaving behind de vos dangerous and uncertain but our vacuum the war isn't over almost 2000 people have been killed that have got a start in the 1st 3 months of this year but now that's a problem for others it will ask other countries of the countries in the region to do more to support of canisters especially pakistan as well as russia china india in turkey. they all have a significant stake in the stable future for afghanistan under stab at the taliban and now is believed to be more powerful than at any point in 20 years they control a contest more than half the country and that's with thousands of nato troops
1:11 am
keeping them at bay with those foreign troops gone what's to stop them taking law but siege in kabul and doing decades of humanitarian and human rights progress would they still feel obligated to root out hardline terrorists i mean. the us never came here for the benefit of afghanistan no one was happy with the us coming here and i don't think many people will be sad to see them leave the us came to afghanistan for its own interests and that includes nato and all other foreign troops which are under the orders of washington when the us came in 2001 they vowed to deliver peace in afghanistan but they failed us we could never trust american promises and i guess i think u.s. soldiers leave afghanistan i think the situation will become worse because our country's security forces are not equipped to run enough to fight against the taliban who have had the weaponry the us promised many times in recent years about withdrawing its troops but nothing happened and help for peace let's see what will
1:12 am
happen when i was there even as you know the u.s. came to ensure security in afghanistan and as you know the situation has become worse day by day conflicts increased and now the americans are leaving i don't think the americans want afghanistan to prosper they're just seeking a way to flee from the mess they made and they are thinking about the afghan people but when i was 11 i think it could be good if we get peace the afghan people want peace it's a good idea that america leaves of ghana stand we the afghan people are tired of war the taliban are also angry they feel cheated again by this withdrawal deal they already field commanders are promising nightmare for foreign troops until they pull out. and on that note the american and european taxpayers who lost trillions of dollars in this war a left to hope for the best at it no guarantees no clear progress the result of the afghan war is that everyone's been left to hope for the best.

protesters rallied in the german capital after the constitutional court overturned berlin's rent camp room the law has been one of the most debated in the country in recent years that have frozen rent payments at $29000.00 levels for 5 years and people are furious about the utero. it all started very peacefully here it ended with some people being taken away by the police in some small clashes following a ruling in germany's constitutional court that made a boy eat a red cap that was put in place last february by the senate the the government of
1:14 am
the state of this froze rent costs 2019 prices and people were saying that it was just becoming on affordable to live in the city and people being priced out of certain areas the opposite side of the landlords the rental companies would say that the state has no place to meddle in the market they also say that putting in place rental caps would stop new apartments from being built what actually was decided in the constitutional court had nothing to do with the actual ins and outs of rental power they actually ruled on whether the city of and how the jurisdiction to put it in place at all in the 1st place they ruled that things to do with rent like this were actually a matter for the federal law and what this could mean is some quite nasty bills arriving through the doors of around $1500000.00 households it's 90 percent of the residences in berlin that will be affected by this what the ruling says is that
1:15 am
landlords could claim back in a really is for the rents that they say they would have been owed by having rents comped like they say now some rental companies have said they're not going to ask for that money back but all those have said that they will do that which surely is not going to go down well with a lot of people because this coupled with. the pilot and make coupled with people having lost jobs is seeing quite a lot of economic impact here in 'd this war through thousands of people it's quite hard to put an exact figure on it what they say is needed is a ruling on a federal level whether they'll get back on not not for sure. the b.b.c.'s diversity chief slams the character in the broadcast as his. black enough to spot being active by itself driving down debates after the break.

the world is driven by a dream shaped by one person if there is. no
1:17 am
day or thinks. we dare to ask. a boy to get in the fog may be a priority for soul just now so is avoiding upsetting your colleagues soldiers of the british army spoil engineers regiment to being encouraged to mind their language so as to make the u.k. military a more inclusive space some and ride horses in the modern field of today's woke boot camp. so the main dangers of being in the military is you can be shot at blown up. or fall victim to non gender neutral language well $22.00 engineer regiment of
1:18 am
the british army is doing something about it the language not the horrible bad stuff don't call each other lads soldiers are told to be more inclusive and avoid using words such as mankind and sportsmanship over fears that they could cause offense to regiment sergeant major reportedly told his men. people that they need to try harder to up hold the regiments v. and s. v. and s. dance with values and standards do not mix it up with b. and s. he also said that everyone has to remember d. and on that diversity and inclusion and gents men lads other phrases like that are not to be used and this is my favorite he said it should be made sure that people are getting paid the correct compliments we don't always says no. you're. right you know what this
1:19 am
story has caused some our rage among friends or gobs like these more with of course rashly there's nothing new about these directions they came out in 2017 released by the british army's joint equality diversity and inclusion unit or jeddah as it's known. who are inclusive most important so some poles from the guidance from the u.k. military's jello war is inclusive jesting sportsmanship be replaced with fairness or good humor and the word mankind be replaced with humanity whew mankind human race people as had residual some of those are man in as well were british war heroes to tim collins back in 2017 describe to listeners the ludicrous and dangerous morass into which obsequious and p.c. addled senior officers have led the british army which means he doesn't like it. so we can conclude from this is a. 4 years on after about a voice was originally given soldiers are still not quite ready to have their language policed probably because if you knew your army got
1:20 am
a few other things to worry about let's not forget but the army has been at the forefront of the quality they've been teaching mentor on their own trousers for centuries washed on one saw it turn over. to the book about dropping bombs on middle eastern villages is the absolute definition of inclusive ety they'll kill everyone without prejudice. probably a long time for we see scenes like this on the frontline. sort. oh my god did i say that. investigative journalist project veritas has published another undercover sting video involving c.n.n. technical director charlie chester method the outlet tried to help the black lives matter movement by covering it in the most favorable possible light. a strain of
1:21 am
disease apparently the engine heat located and the people are getting exactly as you just a picture that you should attack patients. and someone. who was trying to like help like a b.l. every like day like this i mean it's individuals it's not a few you know. that's like going to the topics about and i'll get it for you that we can speak to the fact that this technical director charlie chester he was certainly part of the culture he was speaking as if they were an advocacy group and this is a network that uses the tagline the most trusted name in news does the most trusted name in news you know colluded directly or indirectly with black lives matter that's a question for the american public to ask it seems that the rules that as a society that we all thought were in place are no longer in place there is no more rule book. meanwhile social media giant twitter on thursday banned project veritas
1:22 am
founder james o'keefe for alleged violations of his policies on platform manipulation and spam o'keefe rejects the claims calling them false and defamatory the ban came right after the journalism group published its undercover investigation into c.n.n. in which the outlets executive also admitted that had a predetermined agenda to get donald trump out of office plus they played up the covert $900.00 death toll to boost ratings give us news room executive director of project veritas says it's time people started asking questions you know this is concerning this is something that the american people should be looking into this is something they should be studying and this is something that they should know about because anything this big that means people make value decisions that affect their lives every day based on the news and if you're telling them you're real and in your off hours you're saying that you're completely fake your propaganda that needs to be investigated that needs to be looked at further you. know it's
1:23 am
a role the scene the actor playing it took to be the next james bond but the lead character in the b.b.c.'s hugely popular crime drama luthor has left the network's head of creative diversity both shaken and stirred she claims that he isn't quote or 3rd took enough to be real the b.b.c.'s pledged to spend when it 1st came out everybody loves the fact the interest is in there really strong black characters. actually he doesn't have any black friends he doesn't eat anywhere carabiner. this doesn't feel authentic when you see groups through the prism of stereotypes this is the insulting outcome which he preferred to see luthor dunk basketball hoops at the end of every scene luther isn't black enough and i see so this is a new wave of racism where black people are not black enough it was implied i'm not black enough because i didn't have any black friends in my photo these lazy syria types are racist. just saying the b.b.c.'s place to spend 100000000 pounds on
1:24 am
making more quote diverse and inclusive television programs will have to pass 3 tests in order to qualify it's an issue that our guests debated. when well culture goes too far it presents something that i call to will to to win you know the bottom line is if we are going to have diversity chiefs you know let's make sure we're talking about making sure that there is a good representation of actors and women and men. you know what our society looks like right now you know where a phrase i came up with recently is when you live by that quote unquote woakes or you're going to the bookstore because when you go out there and try to have diversity and try to have inclusion sometimes you just go way over to tab i think that the diversity counselor does need to answer some more questions to the public because i'm a lot of people were unfortunately insulted by this very langar is comments this idea that blackness is monolithic is very very dangerous and it could lead to more
1:25 am
stereotypes as you were saying it's it was very very very backless and i really hope that the b.b.c. looks into this more actually a lot of times you go way over the top and you try to 5 things like this ok i'm going to a city chief buy things aren't really quite right ok he's not in caribbean food that's not right oh he doesn't have any black friends he's not quote unquote black and no you go so far and your search for diversity you try to create problems when a problem is even exist so that's kind of so the thing b.b.c. was to be woken you want to be more inclusive and not as in a they going to have these kind of problems come up because at a certain point you have to create problems in order to solve them to justify your job even existing if there is a character that is written that's supposed to be a certain character just changing that the skin color isn't necessarily a solution this is a fictional character who it never said in this and his character description that
1:26 am
he was supposed to be so so called black so i think that we should continue thinking about luther as the celebration of an x. exceptional you know acting career. it has been heralded and again mr i think we've become a little bit to solve there's always a caricature of this race or their race or their voice or those ways we're going to start being a little bit little bit to solve because there's softness is what brings up the luther thing ok we're talked about these mascots things don't really matter then we go we open it up and say ok if you have a black character and you got it be authentically black whatever some random person says he's being authentically black because of his softer nature of modern social justice warrior culture. a cancer specialist for moscow has become the 1st ever russian to be officially made a member of the prestigious american surgical association he could cut the cough is
1:27 am
currently moscow's leading on college just he's a pioneer of keyhole surgery for cancer treatment in the country during his 30 year long career the renowned doctors published 7 major studies and almost $300.00 papers russia historian martha macauley says the news is particularly significant given the current political climate. they talk russian specialists are among the best in the world and if i could resist same in the soviet union talk soviet doctors and specialists were among the best in the world russian specialists have always had this high reputation and now this is normally important is prestigious because he's the 1st russian with knitted to this very important surgical association but also i don't time of enormous tension between russia and the united states so it proves that if you put politics aside when you go to medicine or science or literature or anything else there is really quite
1:28 am
a lot of common ground between russia and the united states they can come together and you don't have the conflict you have in politics and indefensible it was. quickly just bring some breaking news has just come in from the u.s. city of indianapolis where several people have reportedly been wounded in a shooting at a fed ex facility the police are calling this a mass casualty incident that just breaking now we'll bring you more details as it comes at a case that's all for this news hour off the bat with updates more on that breaking news in 30 minutes. or a. psychiatric drugs are essential for millions of patients or rather they want that pill that they hope will take care of their problem thoroughly and rapidly in the short term
1:29 am
they really work the problem is in the long term they're mostly disastrous suddenly stopping a drug can cause withdrawal symptoms more serious than the condition it was meant to treat instead of the beneficial effects of these different medicines ending up to something wonderful very often there are full of x. it up to something terrible can bill solve all ills are always trying to mitigate life itself i just think i was and i was just scared i was a scared little girl of 24 and like. i didn't have to be so complicated. the little thing that hollywood is a very. loyal is. really defined well so the business. isn't a. new route on the
1:30 am
border. you know it's very. hollywood is a place and then i. got the movie studios television we've got the music industry sometimes as we know it's also a place where there's a lot of propaganda. to whatever part of the the u.s. government is committed you know you can be sure that hollywood will be following here we're hearing well. how would i define harlem which is a caught between a manufacturer which i think is true. but i think equally it's a propaganda factor.
