trying to mitigate life itself i just think i was in like i was just scared i was a scared little girl i was 24 and like. they didn't have to be so complicated. united states is not looking to kick off a cycle. in conflict with russia slaps the united states with sanctions in retaliation for washington imposing restrictions on russia even the way. i. dress the scene in the u.s. state of minnesota where anger over the police killing of dante right shows no sign of peace in. the c.n.n.
2:01 am
directory secretly filmed admitting this channel spreads propaganda despite having a slogan claiming to be the most trusted media. accused of attacking german democracy she pleads with parliament to grant her more powers to fight the country's worsening pandemic. and a very good morning to you this is international. this week marked another low point in russia u.s. relations as both countries unleash sanctions on each other moscow expelled 10 u.s. diplomats from russia and advised to the acting american ambassador to return home . the latest attack on a country by dubai didn't ministration cannot. it seems that washington does not want to accept the fact that in the new geo political realities there is no place
2:02 am
for unilateral dictatorship and the broken scenarios of containing moscow which the us short sightedly continues to deploy when you risk further degrading russia u.s. relations we knew that this was coming in one form or another it was just a matter of time and on friday russia very demonstrative retaliated against those punitive measures that washington now nst against moscow earlier this week perhaps the most interesting part is that 8 top level washington officials have been banned from entering russian territory and when i say top level i mean highlight reel you know we're talking the head of the f.b.i. the director of national intelligence the secretary of homeland security to i people who are powerful decision makers in washington also a lot less to susan rice and john bolton historically to politicians who are you know. russian rhetoric alongside the names moscow explained that these individuals
2:03 am
had been chosen precisely because they all responsibility for promoting america's anti russian policy direction i have to say this is a really strong move because usually such bans are done on the low down in the quiet that are not announced publicly so clearly the kremlin here is so frustrated by what's going on that it wants to make a really bold korea statement of not 10 american diplomats have been expelled a number of american organizations suspected of interfering in russia's internal affairs have been told that they need to stop their activity and it was also made clear that if the u.s. continues to behave this way the more can and will be done including reducing the diplomatic mission here to just $300.00 and taking action that would be harmful to u.s. business interests so very loud very. announcement leaving the door open for an improvement of relations but at the same time being practical and preparing for the worst as you see it it comes not long after what america said they were going to do as
2:04 am
regards sions what was said on thursday well you have to look at the fact up to this hostile undiplomatic rhetoric coming from the white house of course now the infamous interview including president putin the killer on international television and then this final blow out by joe biden signing what can only be called a sanction spree so that package includes a $32.00 russian and an individual sanction for allegedly interference in last year's presidential election stateside a range of financial and technology firms targeted for apparent cyber attacks on federal agencies 10 russian diplomats expelled borrowing money international made more difficult for russia to and why anyone reasonable would look at this and say well this is pretty extensive apparently joe biden claims that this was his take it easy on russia set of sanctions and that ultimately when he really wants is to be friendly and turn the pressure dial down united states is not looking to kick off
2:05 am
the. school is she in conflict with russia we want a stable predictable relationship is the time to deescalate well saying that after announcing a slew of sanctions is mixed messages it's illogical it's very confusing i mean generally punishment and deescalation don't go hand in hand so you can see why the russian side pointed out that the moment there's a huge disconnect between what russia said it's rather what washington says and what washington does. to refrain from escalation sound hypocritical in essence to trying to talk to us from a position of strength we have repeatedly warned and proved in practice that sanctions and other pressures are not only futile but will also result in disastrous consequences for the. to decide on such provocations so clearly normalized relations between the u.s. and russia are going to require a serious shift here but at the moment it does definitely sound that whilst moscow
2:06 am
of course doesn't want it to terrorists and relations and it's tried everything it can to avoid that at the moment it feels that that might be the only option left while involving the latest round of sanctions the u.s. also saudi claims made last year of russia offering bounties to the taliban to kill u.s. troops in afghanistan the white house of mit's it has very little to back up those claims but is none the less 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 intelligence community to look into it this information really puts the burden on russia and the russian government to explain their engagement here last june it was reported russian intelligence of the taliban linked militants bounties to kill american troops in afghanistan in 2019 the allegations were never proven the
2:07 am
pentagon itself said it could not corroborate the reports but it didn't stop the media from embracing the story vladimir putin is offering boaties for the scalps of american soldiers in afghanistan 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 russia's rejected the allegations with the foreign minister branding them the speculations of phobias of the us intelligence community we got the take of former u.s. marine corps intelligence officer scott ritter. the mere fact that you have politicians action on intelligence that has appeared on the front pages of the new york times knows you right off the bat that it's not intelligence it's been it's clear sized information as opposed to hard intelligence look the united states and russia are adults they they they they sit at the big table they were big boys pants
2:08 am
and their intelligence services do things against one another because that information normally we understand this is the reality of the world but the united states right now is very defensive it's dealing with the changing world changing reality and the fact that russia refuses to play the game of being subservient to you know a dominant america and so this is a domestic political problem where intelligence is 0 and political objective as opposed to doing what it's supposed to do providing insight american decision makers about what ground truth in russia is. it's been a week of angry unrest in the u.s. state of minnesota that follows last sunday's fatal shooting by police have done today right right officers have been resorting to the takeouts and rubber bullets to disperse protesters. here on.
2:09 am
the. brooklyn center police claim dante right died as result of an accidental discharge that's after an officer missed took a gun for a taser. sought it out as peaceful protests ended in looting and violent clashes but the police. protests were also seen in other cities thanks live in chicago dallas and portland where the police union building was set on fire the scenes were reminiscent of those in the wake of george floyd's death last year is that sparking a wave of nationwide protests a year ago radio host wayne do pray who serves as
2:10 am
a board member of the national diversity coalition for donald trump says it's vital to rebuild trust between police and minority communities. tensions are so diode to the left and right the people that are getting hurt or in the middle what's happening right now is not going to stop is going to get worse because the leadership around many places is weak there is a lack of trust on both sides of the aisle. and when i mean both sides are there's a lack of trust with within the police community about what's going on within the minority community in then there's a lack of trust within the minority community about what the police. are doing because of what they see projected on our media every day there has to be a concerted effort from both sides of leadership leadership of people there everybody
2:11 am
can try to sit down and work out proven solutions and. take it all types of suggestions and try to work on something and bring the trust back between law enforcement and the communities. social media john twitter has abandoned the founder of investigative journalist group project veritas for alleged violations of its policies it comes after the group published on of the undercover sting video involving cnn's technical director. a strain of his family's attorney. pete like. people are getting attacked or is it just a punch. in the to protect patients. and someone. who was trying to like health like a b.l. ever like today like i mean it's individuals it's not a you know. that's like the optics of i don't know that we can speak to the fact that this technical director charlie chester he was certainly
2:12 am
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 roebuck well this is the 3rd undercover skate published by project veritas just this week with more on the other revelations his aunties don't cozza. the most trusted name in news it's a title c.n.n. has long prided itself on maybe you buy it maybe you don't but what would you think if a network admin did to deliberately spreading propaganda well apparently they did i do you. believe that it was. but again you are creating a story that we didn't know anything about. that's b.s.
2:13 am
i think that he is the worst president we have ever seen but what president trump just said was undemocratic and false the president seems to think that dominating black people dominating peaceful protesters is law and order it's not he calls them thugs who's the thug here this guy is should not be president cnn's charlie chester's spilled the beans over a tender date he was enticed into by an undercover project veritas journalist he claimed the channel long had a pre-determined agenda to get trump out of office one that flows from the top down from none other than c.n.n. president jeff zucker himself naturally trying to make joe biden out to be a spring chicken was the other side of the anti trump propaganda coing yeah i mean really we did it right but there was. always
2:14 am
a shaking or whatever and he brought in like so many medical people so like all tell a story that i think is all speculation you know you're shocked to hear john. mccain . you know why. that image aviator she. hates him is a. young period sure. sounds a lot like election meddling something c.n.n. has pointed the finger at russia for time and time again blaming on unverifiable claims from u.s. intelligence and its reputation as evidence the. in last year's elections the network claimed that moscow was trying to hurt joe biden's chances by spreading conspiracy theories about the now u.s. president i'm talking about russia attacking our election russia once again interfered in the race for the white house russia is indeed interfering in the 2020 election with that kind of a double standard it should come as no surprise that people's trust for c.n.n.
2:15 am
is on the decline but we don't think that this is all the personal attacks just. makes this worse when you're caught red handed hiding the way you do business from your viewers that's one thing but accusing someone else for breaking the very rules you yourself were caught breaking well that's another it's a rinky dink 2 bit organization what do you want it c.n.n. and that scared defense immunized from any responsibility because nobody takes them seriously and as far as project very callous and james o'keefe god bless him but how many exposé s. must he produced before something's done things done nothing jeff zucker still there everybody still there but let me explain something their ratings are plummeting who wants to watch c.n.n. if there's no trunk what do you do talk about what a great job biden is knowing what a great job camelot harris story i don't think so now me we can't believe what
2:16 am
we're seeing and our country is in complete collapse with our borders being destroyed and being invaded daily with a sense of believe a bull distrust with with the vaccine in efficacy vaccine malpractise with this anyway and years nothing for them to build up. the world we gave is now officially part of the british army where one regiment has been told to use inclusive language to avoid causing offense to look at what minefields new recruits have to navigate to this break. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic development the only thing
2:17 am
i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. strongly believe that. information. will be. nobody. with. either. show. or ships will drown but. i agree let's stop with no more be will be.
2:18 am
welcome back the german chancellor has been accused of undermining the country's democracy this is after agel americal pleaded with lawmakers to grant the federal government powers to impose regional curfews and lock downs and without the consent of local authorities who was heckled during a heated debate in parliament. we're slamming on the brakes nationwide i'm convinced a nationwide imagine see stop is overdue and urgently needed a lauren measures have a single goal to lead our country ad of this terrible phase of managing infections cash isa not a new invention but they are part of the infection protection that is currently in place. i ask you jake colleagues whatever a personal opinions may be don't you think that we should take them into account in the way we're debating this here ultimately what i'm going to merkel wants is changes to the infection protection act that would allow her not just to say this
2:19 am
is what we should be doing but to be able to say this is what is going to happen the way it works here in germany with the federal system is all those things can be decided from the federal government in berlin how they're implemented on the ground particularly when it comes to covert 19 restrictions are left up to the interpretations of the governments of the 16 states that make up germany now what angle america wants to do is take some of those powers from the states and have them for herself well as you can imagine not everybody is happy with that outside of the bundestag there was a small but vocal demonstration against what the chancellor is trying to do in the opposition from the alternative to germany partly though as making the argument that these powers already exist that they don't need to be given to the to the federal government and that the chancellor should let the states decide what's best for the states this effect to introduce the infection protection act is an alarm
2:20 am
and document of authoritarian thinking never before has a federal government dared to include so many attacks on the basic freedoms of citizens and the rule of law and on democratic principles and so few sentences as in this draft the more we've been here before though with anglo merkel's saying she wanted to implement national measures national lockdowns and things like curfews when it comes to the fight against covert 19 just before. easter we heard the chancellor announce this was going to happen over the easter break only for her to have to make one of the biggest u. turns of her political career when just over 24 hours later she said actually that's not going to happen because technically i don't have the powers to be able to tell you to do that. in my early. to fast of april as well as the surge of april should be defined as calm days with extensive contact restrictions and a ban on gatherings from the fast to the 5th of april. it gives women the idea was a mistake this mistake is my mistake alone a mistake must be called
2:21 am
a mistake and above all it must be corrected at the same time of course i know that this whole matter trygaeus more uncertainty i regret that deeply and apologize to all citizens this brings us today and the facts of the matter on the ground when it comes to covert 19 is that germany is being gripped particularly hard by this waves the robert cock institute which handles germany's public health affairs is warning that unless something is done that april could well be a record breaking month for germany when it comes to covert 19 infections what angle are merkel is seeking the power to be able to do is that when cases reach a number of 100 new infections per 100000 over population that an emergency brake can be pulled nationally the thing is is there's a lot of pushback against this despite that pushback it does seem likely that these changes to the infection protection act will be made by some point next week we
2:22 am
expect them to be signed into law by german president frank. you've probably heard of the work brigade well in the u.k. so actually become a reality soldiers in the british army's royal engineers regiment been told to mind their language in case it might offend someone or to some right throws a few grenades on the frontline of the culture war. 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 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.
2:23 am
b. and s. 1000 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 that gentz men lads other phrases like that are not to be use 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 story has caused some our rage among friends to god's lying please move with of course but actually 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 jet oyo as it. were inclusive most important so some poles from the guidance from the u.k. military's jet i war is include suggesting sportsmanship be replaced with fairness or good humor and the word mankind be replaced with humanity whew mankind human
2:24 am
race people as had residual some of those of 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. senior officers have led the british army which means he doesn't like it. but. so we can conclude from this is. 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 a few other things to worry about let's not forget that 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. dropping bombs on middle eastern villages is the absolute definition of inclusive ity there kill everyone without prejudice. probably a long time for we see scenes like this on the front line.
