tv Redacted Tonight RT July 10, 2017 7:30pm-8:01pm EDT
melissa seymour hersh revealed the motivations and facts given by trump for bombing syria were about as truthful as a bill cosby testimony. and was that testimony for jell-o. putting which i still believe he legitimately lives. i want others to sell me the name of genoa. you remember trump justification for bombing was the use of chemical weapons by assad but hearst revealed that the syrian military did not use chemical weapons that the us military knew what assad's military was doing at the time and that the bombing was meant to hit a high level meeting of jihad as leaders and did just that hersh is source says it's this was not a chemical weapons strike that's a fairy tale military grade serenades odorless and invisible and death can come within a minute no clout so if it were seren there would be no cloud but instead there was a slow moving cloud of chemicals a bomb damage assessment by the u.s.
military later determined that the heat and force of the five hundred pound syrian bomb triggered a series of secondary explosions that could have generated a huge toxic cloud formed by the release of the fertilizers disinfectants and other goods stored in the basement patients on the scene smelled of bleach suggesting they had been exposed to chlorine remember syrian gas has no smell and that way it's kind of the opposite of steve bannon so so if the u.s. military knew that this was likely not a chemical weapons attack. why didn't they tell trump why did they want to go more on what's happening in syria if it's a goddamn mass but it's not chemical weapons well seymour hersh states the trumps national security team did try to convince him but it was a bit they were about as effective as teaching math to a goldfish. because even if you get past the memory issues they're still how's he
going to work yeah because you know hands. first says i learned of the total disconnect between the president and many of his military advisers as well as officers on the ground in the region who had an entirely different understanding of the nature of syria's attack all this time i was under the impression that trump was just and misinformed what are relieved to learn he's informed correctly but chooses to be dumb. or was. right. what am i going to go in there all that's right if you watch the mainstream media you already know that syria did not launch chemical weapons. i told response to the syrian government using chemical weapons against innocent men women and children last night take out his airfields and prevent him from being able to use them to
bomb innocent people and try sarah gas now i'm guided by the beauty of our weapons hitler who didn't even sink to the. to using chemical weapons chemical weapons against innocent men women and children in a sense before the beauty of our weapons to using chemical weapons raw searing gas . the united states of america is back. or nah. yes our corporate media apparently only bias trumps neko oil by the gallon when it involves the reasons for blowing up other countries essentially no serious discussion was given to questions about the chemical attack with every other allied trump tells and we can all agree he makes lance armstrong look like sojourner truth right. with all these other lies our mainstream media calls him out for being true are full of shit the only thing they celebrate is his war propaganda it's the
women of being upset with your friend for his endless lying in regards to everything from foods ball scoring to to who bought the last round of drinks except when it comes to the tender dates he's been murdering and storing under is bad. when he lies about those you congratulate him and give him a job well done. and this is not the first time a president has led us into bombing a sovereign nation with the gleeful assistance of our media here are just three examples of many the iraq war i'm not sure if you're familiar with this minor footnote in america's distant past but the year was two thousand three and a strapping young lad named saddam hussein had really gotten our goat. following nine eleven hussein was discovered committing the unforgivable crime of ruling a country in the general vicinity of the country that actually birthed the
hijackers who attacked us. plus he sat atop a lot of oil that he refused to just give us. and he dropped the petro dollar which is like our favorite kind of dollars. luckily his weapons of mass destruction program has seen here gave us an ironclad reason to invade he was preparing to kill oh i'm. million innocent people later after he had been toppled arrested hanged and we had killed roughly a million innocent people we found his weapons program consisted of three guys with a slingshot. which might not sound bad but the sling shot could be retrofitted to launch stones the size of popeye us. in our defense after the million people were killed in new york times did issue a correction it read a correction over the past four years we reported that saddam hussein had weapons
of mass destruction and therefore the us needed to invade iraq their story their society topple their government and kill a lot of people please ignore that reporting. it didn't actually say that but it shows. the vietnam war started following the gulf of tonkin incident even the name it's a lie the gulf of tonkin incident is actually two incidents that were actually one incident which is actually only a half an incident. on august second nineteen sixty board the u.s.s. maddox exchanged gunfire with three north vietnamese torpedo boats the us claimed the vietnamese fired first but in fact the u.s.s. maddux fired the first shots then two days later to us you have spent four hours firing on various radar targets that were attacking them they sunk to torpedo boats which may not you know which move a sound like a wind right they sunk two boats but you have to take into account that those
torpedo boats did not adhere to the traditional definition of existing. so it's actually surprising the u.s. navy didn't sink far more than just two imaginary boats why not report you saying billions of boat. that's right the u.s. military spent four hours shooting at rain clouds in the gulf of tonkin following that confrontation defense secretary mcnamara and vice president johnson to retaliate and the president agreed in the two thousand and three documentary the fog of war former secretary of defense mcnamara admitted that the august fourth gulf of tonkin attack never happened. so our justification for getting involved in vietnam was two incidents which were actually only one incident which was actually our fault. over the next several years fifty eight thousand u.s. service members and as many as three point eight million vietnamese would die in the fighting but those rainclouds knew to step the back right of ghana's
stand almost all the nine eleven hacker hijackers were from saudi arabia and osama bin laden was alternately found in pakistan. or god of you ask yourself how much cable news reporting you've heard of the fact that truck bombs serial for a completely false reasons our media has a seemingly limitless amount of time and energy to get this story wrong but you just can't seem to find the room to schedule in their schedule to get it right you know it's tough i got my daughter's recital i gotta do. it all the time for the reporting. also ask yourself why when assad is clearly winning the war against the rebels he would choose to do the one thing that would get america directly involved through teacher glee it would be about the dumbest thing he could possibly do it would be like of the golden state warriors were up by twenty in the last sixty
seconds of the n.b.a. finals and suddenly steph curry just stabbed le bron james in the thigh. sure it might get the braun out of the way i put it also land curry in jail following a game the warriors were about to win any right. if there is anything our nation's news channel should take seriously it's war so corporate media please drop your pompoms and do your damn job right that was my less cynical ending where i pretend our media wants what's best for america and just needed a proper scolding to get back on track. here now is. my actual and doing the corporate media is built is designed to cheer on aggressive nationalism and unquestioned jingoism they perpetrate a fraud on the american people in order to make sure we support the endless destruction of other countries and any reporter who does not bolster blind american
hegemony is quickly stripped of their cushy job their gold plated health care and their sparkly cocktail parties before being put out to pasture whatever do you. think the media the r.c.c. the crazy. yeah good enough camels take the news from behind did everybody have a good july fourth did you. think did you do like i did and celebrate by covering yourself in on. the other american flags teasing the american flag
nipple clamps the american flag that's. covered everything here when a little shopping spray shopping is rare i gotta go you gotta do it i have a big american cook i read before all american bout of diarrhea right here. is this a little or lose things made in china made in taiwan he didn't. buy it in bangladesh and we wonder why the average american is struggling not even our nationalism is made in america. our own pride in our country is mass produced by a twelve year old and guatemala. who hates you. and we think not the sustainable model how do we want to go where is the stuff going to go in a word awful one in self-delusion. the past had stopped.
denial is not just a river in egypt all right and if it were we would bomb it because who are they to have the only niall. if we can't have it no one will. i mean honestly what do you think what do you think the sweatshop workers are thinking while they're making this because man americans sure do love polyurethane. just. i can actually smell the fumes coming off the stuff don't get me wrong i have no problem with nationalism except for it being a figment of our imagination that we used to find an excuse to hate and kill each other in a similar manner to racism but not one not my point though i'm saying that even in something like this something like the simple wearing of july fourth garb it requires willful ignorance of what it says on the label and so on it's a lot of people it sounds like you have to google where did my american flag that come from you know like it's that actress in that movie and you're like oh what is
she from she's from something bam pyar thing i think i don't know something with teeth maybe a dentistry thing i don't she's from some it's not like that it doesn't. it's right there made in china what does that mean for our society these tags symbolize the cutting of our own work force in the name of profit the completely inefficient use of goods and labor and the fact that these corporations have no allegiance to this country no one budweiser is based in belgium burger king is based in canada it really is google and apple are based in ireland they move there just so they don't have to pay taxes your i phone doesn't give an i phone. these tags also represent the abuse of human beings in other countries and we're fighting with and how do you how big would the label have to be before it became a concern of ours like what if the entire back of the shirt said made by
bangladeshis when a child laborers could just send us a business can't. figure out leftover one would that give us. pause or we just go about our dog in a way that. i'm just i'm asking for a friend as her friend we have to go pretty go to a quick break but join me on twitter at least camp and at redacted tonight plus i have live comedy shows coming up in minneapolis chicago and washington d.c. say just about redacted tonight at r.t. america dot tv for details and to guess what arrived back. for decades the american middle class has been railroaded by washington politics. big money for work that's drowned out a lot of boys that's how it is in the news culture in this country now that's where
the hour. came with the topic of independence day according to his story of howard zinn the revolutionary war is considered one of america's holy wars not religious but meaning it's beyond reproach it's sacrosanct and you can't criticize it without the collective american psyche coming to life and bitch slapping you with a toby keith platinum album. why is that here now to explain is our senior historian john a vote on all. the. while you know why can't we say anything bad about the american revolution because there's nothing bad to say.
the war for independence was pure it's like a baby snow leopard living in the himalayan mountains of tibet or a kindergarten student with a brand new backpack. or a really good go came. your. no john the revelator war wasn't pure war i'm glad the colonists escaped the tyranny of britain i'm glad that it happened but it didn't mean independence for everyone right it codified slavery in the law and at the time of the constitution only six percent of the people in america could vote yeah yeah but it was still a pretty great war all in all what about all of the killing and how else were the colonists supposed to. rid of them dirty red coats you know i mean when you're dealing with a brit you got to take your bayonet and jam it through is alive the black heart will scream in yankee doodle dandy
a the top of your audience the only way. this is it no there there were ten solid years of of nonviolent action taken by the colonists preceding the first battles it was still a fact of the by seven hundred seventy four british power was essential to disintegrate ok ok the story and here are right. and i have little to no idea what you're talking about you really should you probably you know i just know the greatest hits like no taxation without representation. and i memorized that famous poem by longfellow about paul revere whom i have no fear it's paul revere hey paul are the british near what's that first you want to be err no problem while you drink it shall i recite king lear perfect perfect all appear well done i think we're a little off track here john pitt people need to know about the decade long nonviolent
struggle struggle that involves tactics like boycotting and work refusal and creating an independent economy in a sense of shared american identity now for rich white male landowners i mean that's like the worst version of the fortune cookie game when you have to add like in bed at the end but instead you have to add four rich white male landowners right they are passionate new romance appears in your life when you least expect it for a rich white male landowners. lame it's terrible you just carry fortune cookies were there whatever renowned political scientist gene sharp believes if the colonists didn't turn to armed struggle they might have even become free sooner well i mean just because he believes it doesn't. it's true i mean people believe the earth rotates around the sun but that's not true. i added engine definitely is true along regardless of whether or not it can be proven that the colonies could
have one nonviolently assuming that our only option was to fight a bloody war is just that it's an assumption well you know you're right the problem is once a historical event has occurred it's very difficult to imagine that that same result could have been achieved in a death in a different way like i could say priscilla britton insane in the membrane without smoking the field of dungeon was because the revolutionary war was for a just cause independence we extrapolate therefore that it was a just war and we use that misguided extrapolation to rationalize future conflicts . how can you know that and not know the earth rotates around the sun. i don't know i mean well maybe the answer is right here. got another one. when hungry order more chinese food. for rich white male landowners. yes.
there was a very important yet hardly talked about supreme court decision a couple of weeks ago so here now to school us on some is redacted correspondent only care of on. the supreme court at the close of their term this year buildout how bush officials despite the extreme abuses against innocent post nine eleven detainees a far reaching decision that critics are calling ominous dangerous disappointing shameful and saying increases executive power. this is not a good time for that after you see the what's going on on twitter. you remember raised more than five thousand immigrants following nine eleven were put in
indefinite detention suffer grisly abuse and were cut off from the outside world and especially warriors you can see the amount of detainee's who were found to have connections to terrorism in mind sophisticated chart so i was you can see it's zero percent but if you multiply that by with other side of the chart it's still zero percent you know i don't think that this chart is that events but it clearly indicates the result and it could also be a boop. going to one thousand nine hundred seventy one case called given verses six you know well. we don't have time for that name this is cheney. consumes federal officials for damages for constitutional violations but not if they were acting in the out sensible interests of national security according to justice kennedy's majority opinion in the case invoking national security q three it allows for anything. detain people on lawfully bomb countries. cheat on your
wife house pain publicly sometimes you can hear lawmakers say it's my national security and i'll cry of but i want to know why am i explaining all this to you of course you saw analysis of this monumental case on a c.n.n. panel actually put out a video that he was did was say closely you know saying it's fascism you know not your own movie that was them doing the important work of analyzing trump's wrestling name they had all kinds of specialists weigh in on what a sling means political commentators a veteran of reddit a veteran of the w w e and the terror he destroyed without them we would be smarter we would actually be a lot smarter soon after the attack the f.b.i. had identified the hijackers and the hijackers networks however we learned from again changing piece of evidence in the case ashcroft intended to racially profile
ashcroft had one of the agencies to investigate individuals with muslim sounding names and they weren't even good at racially profiling because they arrested not only muslims but also jewish israelis hindus sikhs and this falafel plan which found himself in custody reach is understandable falafel would catch up we know new came from foreign chickpeas or no bowling anyone with that condiment cover the cia acted upon ninety six thousand terrorism related tips from the public according to f.b.i. whistle blower colleen rally the most common citizen tips we receive is going to the effect of i don't want you to think i'm prejudiced because i know i know oh oh of course not only things that what i just after of course is what is it is a cunt bombs ticking luggage or worse. two decade old who with me you
know none of those things tape was usually about an arrow middle eastern man the tipster lives by or works with so to the noble citizen who called the f.b.i. my dad was it because he is really dark skin or because you saw him curse at his lawnmower in arabic the lower courts determined that high ranking officials should all be held liable but the high court reversed that decision because officials me second guessed difficult place and necessary decisions concerning national security policy we threw innocent people in jail executed the wrong people during other wars and now we're always out or so yeah second guess please take a second phone a friend peruse the constitution take a leak see on your ashcroft for just
a second and then ask yourself if illegal detention under no stinks of civil rights abuses or you just didn't wipe your ass kroft anough at the supreme court i mean we care a bonnie for the act of the night. or our headline from the future in august us military accidentally goes to war for legitimate reasons. a year from now you'll learn chinese job work or hoping uncle sam fireworks is packaging at least take off a couple thunders. if you go if you go over in september you already. how good old golf a time can raincloud refuses to talk about what it did in vietnam or. apparently it's just quietly mutters to itself i'm not i'm not proud. that's our show but you
in case you're new to the game this is how it works my economy is built around quite. a racial mix from washington washington post media the media. voters elected is not to run this country business because. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done. would you have for breakfast yesterday quietly to put those for. your wife or. donkey. what's your biggest fear a little bit on the hayride when celeste medical board you say if you ever met
the best quarterback. that's point the topic that doesn't belong in the piece now i've interviewed you to question more. i think the average viewer just after watching a couple of segments understands that we're telling stories that our critics can't tell and you know why because their advertisers won't let them. in order to create change you have to be honest you have to tell the truth artie's able to do that every story is built on going after the back story to what's really happening out there to the american what's happening when a corporation makes a pharmaceutical chills people when a company in the environmental business ends up polluting a river that causes cancer and other illnesses they put all the health risk all the
dangers out to the american public those are stories that we tell every week and you know what they're working. on the news tonight donald trump jr refutes allegations he colluded with a russian lawyer to dig up dirt on hillary clinton and the united states and russia move ahead on international cooperation after the g. twenty despite resistance from the president's own party and the president challenges the senate to come up with a final bill to repeal and replace obamacare before the august resurface recess i'm ed schultz reporting tonight from washington d.c. you're watching our team america. good evening friends we start tonight with another.
