4:00 am
history is successful it will create more jobs it will create more value added it will create more growth so i don't see why we shouldn't also fight for the interest something into street except that we have regulation we want regulation i was in the. final 2 last time. looking. in conflict with russia. the united states has sanctions in retaliation for washington imposing restrictions on russia. has been a week of unrest in the state of minnesota over the police killing of right shows
4:01 am
no sign of. the c.n.n. director is secretly filmed admitting his channel spreads propaganda slogan claiming to be the most trusted media outlet. very good morning to you thanks for joining us for the weekly here. this week marked another low point in russia u.s. relations as both countries are least sanctions on each other moscow expelled 10 u.s. diplomats from russia and advised the acting american ambassador to return. the latest attack country by the by 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 for unilateral dictatorship and the broken scenarios of
4:02 am
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 announced 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 had been chosen precisely because they all responsibility for promoting americans
4:03 am
and to 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 and as you see it it comes not long after what. they were going to do as regards sanctions what was said on thursday well you have to look at the fact up to this
4:04 am
hostile undiplomatic rhetoric coming from the white house of course now the infamous interview joe biden calling 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 you got 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 all he really wants is to be friendly and turn the pressure dial down united states is not looking to kick off the. school is she in conflict with russia we want
4:05 am
a stable predictable relationship now 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 that moment there's a huge disconnect between what russia says rather what washington says and what washington does cool shroom of receipts 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 of course doesn't want it to terrorists and relations and it's tried everything it
4:06 am
can to avoid that at the moment it feels that that might be the only option left following the lead of the united states the czech republic announced on saturday it was expelling 18 russian diplomats it blames russia for a huge munition depot explosion in 2014 meanwhile check replace are looking for 2 male suspects using russian passports in connection with the explosion the quite well known in fact as they were previously accused of the alleged policing of the script with 28 team para legibly visited the czech republic the time of the explosion moscow has vowed to respond to prague expulsion of the diplomats. while averting the latest russia sanctions america also cited claims made last year of russia offering bounties to the taliban to kill u.s. troops in afghanistan the white house admits it has very little to back up those claims but is nonetheless demanding answers from the kremlin we felt the reports were enough of
4:07 am
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 a taliban linked militants bounties to kill u.s. troops in afghanistan this was in 2019 the allegations were never proven the pentagon itself said it couldn't corroborate the reports that insult to be dear from embracing the story zlata mir puton. is offering for the scalps of american soldiers in afghanistan how 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 russian rejected the
4:08 am
allegations with the foreign ministry branding them the speculations and phobias of the u.s. intelligence community we got to take a 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 those you right off the bat and 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 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 a 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
4:09 am
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 state of minnesota following last sunday's fatal shooting by police of dante right right offices have been resorting to the use of tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the protesters.
4:10 am
the berkeley center police claimed on to ride died as a result of an accidental discharge after an officer mistook the gun for a taser or started out as peaceful protest ended in looting a violent clashes with police. protest also seen in other cities that included chicago dallas and portland where the police union building was set ablaze seems reminiscent of those in the wake of george floyd's death last year at spots a wave of nationwide protests a year ago video swaying to pray and serve as a board member of the national diversity coalition but on themselves says it's vital to rebuild trust between police and minority communities the 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 of my own
4:11 am
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 can trust to sit down and work out proven solutions and and take it all types of suggestions and try to work out something and bring the trust back between law enforcement and the community. social media john twitter has banned the founder of investigative journalist great project veritas for alleged violations of his policies comes after the great published in the undercover sting video that involved c n n's technical director. a strange disease a term like e.g.
4:12 am
heat like a people are getting attacked or is it just a bunch of. men try to protect patients. and someone. trying to like help like a b.l. every like day like i mean it's individuals it's not a you know. that's like that or the opposite i don't know 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 roebuck this is the 3rd undercover scape published by project veritas this week
4:13 am
with more on the other revelations his aunties don't cotton. 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 the network admin did to deliberately spreading propaganda well apparently they did i do you. believe the movie was received i don't know that but again you are reading stories that we didn't know anything about. that's b.s. 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
4:14 am
a tender date he was enticed into by an undercover project veritas journalist and 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 calling yeah i mean like we did it right when he was. shaking or whatever and we brought in like so many medical people so like all tell a story like this is all speculation you know sheer shock to hear john. mccain. the you know buy. him a new savior she. hated me as a. young. tree. that sounds a lot like election meddling something c.n.n. has pointed the finger at russia for time and time again leaning on unverifiable
4:15 am
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 tacking more 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. is on the decline but we don't think that this is all the personal attacks to do. 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. that they are different immunized from any responsibility because nobody takes them seriously and as far as project very jealous and james o'keefe god bless him
4:16 am
but how many exposé these must be produced before something's done things done and 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 i mean we can't believe what 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 vaccine an efficacy vaccine malpractise with this anyway and years nothing for them to build up. to it's not international after the break french will make its passage controversial security bill paid allies in the spread
4:17 am
of images of police officers in operation bring it up under the stories of a. i'm max kaiser one more of my guide to financial survival this is fun and a device used by professional scallywags to earn money. that's right these hedge funds are simply not accountable and we're just getting more and more to them. destabilize the global economy you need to protect yourself and get in for a watch guys are. soon to believe that the information degree of united states and russia. will be.
4:18 am
nobody there for the feet. either. show. warships with drones but. i agree let's start with know this will be the it will be escalation of this. controversial security bill been passed by the french parliament to transitional powis to law enforcement bodies buses face widespread criticism for making it harder to call out police abuse. there was rounded criticism of this bill when it was presented a year ago not just from the left from human rights organizations and also
4:19 am
journalists who says well concerned about elements contained in this global security bill now one of the most controversial elements was oh it's a cool 24 we've discussed this many times and the feelings about this is that it would continue issues in the ability of the press to do their job when it came to distributing images of police offices as a result of that controversy and the widespread protests we saw here in france the government said it was going to completely revise this particular article the sticker mind though over the protests against article 24.
4:20 am
well the government said it was to rewriting that article completely but as it's been posted a there are elements that still of being criticized by many article $24.00 in the bill that was posted a bipolar menteri and still contains limits on who can and call and publish images over the police if they use images that publish with an intent to harm physically or mentally one of those offices or if somebody is found guilty of doing that they would then face a fine of 75000 euros or up to 5 years in jail so a pretty severe penalty for that but it wasn't just. article 24 that caused concern this know as it's been passed now gives police offices the right to film
4:21 am
interventions that they make it is allows them to regulate the use of drones for the police to be able to monitor protest potentially and it allows offices to carry their weapons even when they are d.t. some have described this move as essentially making roads dysfunctioning democracy and what about in simple terms this law will significantly restrict freedoms the use of drones during protests and things like that this is a disaster for democracy and freedom because security is as important as freedom it is true but there are people who abuse it the harm is not for freedom with self people and not freedom cause harm. you need to think if there are other tools that would be more consistent with the principle of human freedom the right to protest is our right that we spy on people and it's not just about concern on the
4:22 am
streets here in france a u.n. panel of experts also raise concerns about this nor saying that it was incompatible with international human rights. the bill could lead to significant violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms in particular the right to privacy and the right to freedom of expression so despite those continuous cause to scrap this bill it has been passed on thursday by parliamentarians 75 voting for it 33 against it but human rights organizations say this isn't the end they say that they will continue to challenge this law when it now goes to france's constitutional court and it says that that last decision will be made as to whether this bill will become law or not. a new video game sparked controversy in america with a muslim civil rights an advocacy group calling for it to be deeply formed called 6 days of joining the iraq wars bloodiest battle it is accused of normalizing
4:23 am
violence against muslims in america and around the world for ports. more than 100 u.s. marines killed around 800 iraqi civilians 2 dead in bombings some short others incinerated to death this is the 2nd battle of fallujah reduced to stark statistics the bloodiest battle of the entire iraq war for american troops now made into a video game it was the bunkers they would build inside houses. and you would go in the house would be your client and then they would open up our new girl. from d.-day to the battle of stalingrad from vietnam all the way to her done and further back in history the video game industry is no stranger to projects based on real events but the developers over 6 a day in fallujah say their title is bigger than just a game it's
4:24 am
a documentary there isn't a campaign with a story. you know. there's not this is a this is a documentary with interactive sections interest. the code name for the game was. we're taking this as real and we were trying to. present them as a documentary were so here's a few documented facts about the battle tens of thousands of civilians that refused to leave the city a city deprived of power and water for days a city where the main hospitals entire medical stockpile was nothing more than bandages a city that dispelled the myth of america's precision targeting of insurgents as a single mortar shot was on said with a show of fire power across neighborhoods and last but not at all least the city
4:25 am
that enjoyed the full brunt of the u.s. chemical weapons supply. as follows the residents were surprised with this video game contrary to the fact that the us army came as peace corps destruction and debris remain today there are still scars here from the prohibited weapons the presence of the u.s. army was a source of sorrow and agony to residents and the city's infrastructure. this video game is politicized it's underestimates the agony of the residents and the trauma of the city i'm against this video game as it shows the war in our city it's been a wrong policy to wage that war from the very start we want to boycott of the game
4:26 am
because of that we didn't believe that we parse the distress and the agony that the war brought to us now this video game shows the distress again the scars from the war are still seen in fallujah people are traumatized here we don't want to see kids and women killed again houses demolished would have minded boycotts of this video game. you already know what i'm getting at none of these events above apparently will make it into this documentary game developers want to keep it atrocities free the reality of fallujah a place where people live their lives has been glossed over for the sake of a thrilling combat experience if you're going to call the game documentary video game in at the same time you want to be trustee 3 then you're already misrepresenting these historical events because there are numerous atrocities only attempt that i'm aware actually count i mean that in solution please the figure
4:27 am
between 4006000 that's something that needs to be addressed and to try to portray it atrocity 3 year are ready changing the story or just story you did. storing the story. with more than a 100 us families suffering from losing their loved ones to the sands of iraq their sacrifice has every right to be perpetuated in a video game but with 8 times as many iraqis dead and countless more scarred for generations ahead by the indiscriminate use of chemical weapons their ordeal deserves at least not to be emitted from the story this is a commercial company and commercial companies don't care about anything other than profit so there is no ethics there is no wall ality if it has a right there which people want to buy well whether it is. this is so absolute rubbish it resents the criminal behavior of american soldiers
4:28 am
as here all week long versing rolls by training their victims as terrorists and criminals heroes it's immoral treaty of tragedy of the victims as a game is totally unacceptable and encouraging by only a relations of international law by killing civilians which is contrary to the geneva convention dreamy makes one wonders why this game is being made ok about it today don't forget to check out plenty more stories over heading to a website r.t. dot com. it's
4:29 am
