donald trump jr plays down what he calls a nonsense meeting with the russian oil last year rejecting allegations of collusion with moscow. amid reports the displaced mosul residents are starting to return to fears a growing they have nowhere to go as the iraqi cities liberation has left it devastated. the u.s. is apparently backtracking on his plans to restore relations with russia just days after the leaders of the two countries agreed on several key issues.
to do with me and welcome to the program. u.s. democrats on the media have rounded on donald trump's son over a meeting he held last year with a russian lawyer in response he has released the full email exchange from june twenty sixth relating to this meeting. one of the emails off is quote very high level and sensitive information that supposedly incriminated presidential candidate hillary clinton and might be of use to trump sr the info was claimed to be based on some official documents originating allegedly from some crown prosecutor of russia that job has actually raised quite a few eyebrows in the media. because there is in fact no such official position in russia the country not being a monarchy and there are confusing aspects to the story to ask and explains the
story is like a rorschach test meaning that everyone sees a different picture and most of the media sees a picture of collusion entries i. think he was about to get help from a russian lawyer with ties to the kremlin this is looking more and more like treason intent to collude with the russian government all these strange behavior from the president it's all explained now that's not how trump jr sees it he says that nothing of substance was discussed at the meeting which he described as a name nonsense it was such a nothing. there was nothing to tell me and i wouldn't even remember it until you start scouring through the stuff it was literally just a wasted twenty minutes which was a shame whatever the content was the characters involved with the meeting are certainly worthy of a good moving. every
week. i'm really tired you're fired. you'll know her name now i want to tell you this it's got a new tal you need sky of the new tal you have vessel in it sky a. good story but why does everyone want to link this russian lawyer to the kremlin she works in adoption law and does not work with the russian government and why would the russian prosecutor choose all of these people to deliver sensitive information to the trump camp donald trump jr confirms that this meeting was
a big nothing burger he says she did not have any damaging information on clinton but instead that she wanted to discuss adoption law in the magnitsky act she confirms this. nobody knew who would be attending the meeting all i knew that mr donald trump you knew was willing to meet with me do you have connections to grow should go. no further more if this meeting between the trump team of the russian lawyers was about handling damaging information on clinton where is this bombshell we have yet to see any bombshell from the trump team about their opponent so after months and months of proof related to russia and being anticipated we finally have a story that's rather complicated in fact it's so complicated that you can see whatever you want the confirmation bias of the reader can lead the mind's eye to read whatever they want into the story if you're determined to see trump works for the russians you can see it even though the logical links just don't add up cable
mup and artsy new york. julian asuncion was among those trying to junior to publish his emails in the name of transparency he offered to do it for him to mislead by a wiki leaks to try but you know publish them himself the political and legal analyst lionel told us that there's no substance in this story the buzzword russia making it a point of discussion for the media. whenever you hear about this trump collusion meeting always ask the question and because that's what you have to do and that i will drive junior met with this. and look what we're doing we're talking about what could have been what should have been playing what if in any light from any angle there is nothing that is even remotely almost against the law somebody said treason this there
is nothing here but let me tell you what is the saddest part we have been told russia russia russia russia to such an extent that maybe by virtue of this repetition there's been some kind of a cerebral connection made where people impute to guilt whenever that word is met and i'm not kidding you it's almost like a brainwashing there is absolutely nothing to this story no matter how you look at it from anybody's point of view there is nothing there i think i've made that very clear i think. people are starting to return to the iraqi city of mosul off to the government declared victory over islamic state in the area on monday however one of the most difficult task could still lie ahead as most of mosul has been devastated by nine months of fighting the u.n.
indiscriminate if used in heavily populated areas among them are unguided all tillery rockets and mortars nikki aaron has more on the story. the liberation of mosul from islamic state has topped the news cycle over the past few days has been full of praise for the victorious iraqi and coalition forces and pictures of celebration victory over isis in mosul. celebrations in the streets of mosul embattled iraqi city of mosul is now free the biggest city in isis the so-called islamic state is in the hands of a lucky troops but against the backdrop of jubilation humanitarian groups crying foul over the plight of locals honesty international issued a fifty page report detailing the extent of civilian suffering calling out both iraq and the u.s. led coalition forces for repeated violations of international humanitarian law which it says could amount to war crimes honesty says there was
a reliance on imprecise weapons and ignorance to the growing civilian death toll and a failure to adjust tactics to the challenges created by ice still of course you'd never expect much respect for civilian life from the terrorists known for using innocent people as human shields but it seems that those fighting i still somehow turned a blind eye to what they call collateral damage we have already shifted from attrition people probably shove them from one position to another in iraq and syria to annihilation tactics two billion casualties or a fact of life in this sort of situation besides any additional needless deaths can just be blamed on the ruthless enemy anyway according to the u.n. the battle for mosul is left almost nine hundred thousand people displaced more than eight thousand civilians dead or wounded and one hundred thousand children at
risk sure it's heartbreaking now but if only way heard about it all sooner well the neighboring street destroyed the streets across rubble the street over there. it's the same story wherever you look around you little little. shops what your garbage can mean by your own food model. you know my uncle's house how rove a mother a mom calls wife went back home because howard was sick and the house was shelled by american planes i tried but i couldn't save howard from the shelling and the strikes and flooring it was in there was because when it comes to how the battle for mosul will be remembered is themes these pictures of celebration at the liberation will live on in the media where the civilian suffering will be sufferance in silence the u.s. led coalition has reacted to amnesty international report calling it irresponsible
their spokesman added that war is not pleasant and that those who claim otherwise put the lives of civilians and soldiers at risk. and that the liberation campaign is under way now as u.s. backed rebels prepared to see eisel syrian stronghold of rocket the u.n. says between thirty to fifty thousand people and trapped in the city almost two hundred thousand have already been displaced here are some of their stories. i assure you the rational aim a little metal a dash dash well it's not as nesmith has met but should have warned you a little niche that actually your little bit isn't a bit of a novelty to vote and has been and the dome that has you had the cold and then has become of old and had little to. learn more about them. or not. if you don't know how to be of course you haven't come through the bureau or. at the head of your government any. one and as a member of you would lay
a lot of verb issues what do i shouldn't as a mr haven't been up to one hasn't really the fact that there are huge numbers of civilians there makes it very risky for the called the us led coalition to start such an air offensive similar to that of mosul for example already there are one hundred sixty thousand people civilians who are fled the area but there are more than one hundred fifty and the entire province that are still besieged by the terrorists are not allowed to leave so therefore any sort of a campaign against the area will most definitely increase the number of civilian deaths and to be honest with you the u.s. has not made any sort of willingness to defend or to protect the civilians they put a plan and they go on with the plan and they don't take any concern whatsoever given the fact that there might be civilians. while russia says it's adhering to the agreements reached by president putin and trumpeting the g twenty summit last week the u.s.
is apparently losing and fuz yes some of the most recent example relates to the process of monitoring the cease fire agreement in syria which had been discussed by the two leaders. the u.s. and russia have committed to monitoring the cease fire and ensuring humanitarian access to the areas initially security in these areas will be ensured by russian military police and close cooperation with the u.s. and jordan who those monitors will be i don't know at this point i know we have folks in the region i know that our special envoy to syria is actively engaged in these conversations so why anticipate we'll get that information in the in the near future the details of the great cease fire in syria which came into force last sunday or just one of the things the u.s. government appears to be playing down as jacqueline ports from washington. the highly anticipated biological meeting between donald trump and lot of near putin at the g. twenty summit and with high hopes that the two countries could finally leave all the bad blood behind and see
a new stage in relations after the two presidents met in hamburg tillerson came out saying that they had great chemistry they discussed cyber security and the cease fire in syria and were really ready to move forward to discuss that joint cyber security unit but trump has since backtracked on that with a post on twitter after the idea was widely attacked here in washington and about that cease fire in syria the most important achievement reached by the u.s. and russia in conjunction with jordan moscow has already outlined what role in the suspension of hostilities they will play but america's has yet to be clarified and recent reports show that the pentagon was left completely out of the process we reached out to the pentagon to see if they could shed some light on the plan and they in turn said that the state department was the head agency and referred us to them but they also have yet to come up with a solid strategy in terms of who was doing what when where or how some of those details are still being worked out so no real answer there either and the spokeswoman also had
a rather strange reaction to russia's foreign minister having made comments about working on a cease fire monitoring station in jordan is there any clarity so far on the monitoring of the syrian cease fire. yesterday that it was going to be done with the united states and jordan from the center and give any more details on that mr lacker likes to talk a lot and get out ahead i think of some of the negotiations that are underway that is all still being worked out so we're seeing again one step forward two steps back on what's becoming the usual u.s. approach to working with russia. some of america's partners in europe have also pointed out the inconsistency of america's russia policy german government official cabinet and has last night at the u.s. saying its policy is an indecisive back and forth with no clear direction former u.s. diplomat jim told us what's behind the mixed signals coming from washington. if the russians believe the americans are talking with two voices that's because we are
clearly i think president trump is very sincere in trying to work out some kind of a broader arrangement with moscow and then he faces tremendous opposition here in washington from people who didn't want this meeting to take place at all or wanted to be at best a pro forma handshake and pleasantries kind of thing not to affect any substance we have a lot of people here in the if you will in the deep state who don't want any cooperation with russia at all on anything particularly on syria and there is a huge potential that somebody may try to sabotage it but i am still rather optimistic hangry in israel are growing increasingly angry with been in george soros that on more news after this break.
welcome back to the program the government has launched a countrywide. campaign depicting george soros the hungaroring american billionaire as being used by the government soros head cold and hungry to allow more refugees into the country migrant sentiments a strong his call was dismissed by victor. campaign is rym in this interview were upset darkest hours. these billboards of pokes memories but also saw hatred and fear. although israel's on
a bus to to hungry initially criticized the campaign television quickly released a clarification condemning the actions of some us both in hungary and also in israel we discussed and discussed the situation both countries with an israeli activist sources very hostile towards israel and the here was the economy of the situation in the hungry because it was sorest did he supported all kinds of what we call orange revolutions which on the surface were very peaceful mother there of the day we saw these blood spilled in the ukraine blood spilled in beliefs in many other places where soros put his fingers as you know now the reason compan in the united states that russia meddle in the us elections i don't assemble they're talking about the united states government invested money and in undermining israeli prime minister during the campaign they do it openly they interfere or they meddle and then the queues others of doing i mean this is kind of
the popular seat which needs to be solved and we agree with the government of one hundred garrion when they want to say stop stop. and so as his alleged meddling is also becoming a concern in the us back in march this year several republican senators attempted to launch a probe into where taxpayers' money ends up after being sent to his n.g.o.s but the initiative was rejected despite a collective letter sent to secretary of state rex tillerson hungry is not the only european country to openly denounce the activities of george soros the polish m.p. has alleged that soros violated the polish constitution while a former macedonian leader said sorest using his n.g.o.s has been meddling all across the world we spoke to an international affairs commentator who supports those views. complaints about george entirely justified because we see in his behavior somebody who is has got
a will to power and if he doesn't like the results of a democratic election he will do his best to topple that democratic government so for example in the case of hungary clearly pursuing a nationally or inside policy and that government knows that it will be targeted sooner or later by solar for daring to pursue a national policy rather than a sort of policy in essence what george soros is about is the complete opposite of democracy he has money which he uses to buy power and influence by creating organizations which he tells what to do and they tell the world what to do and what to think he talks about transparency but everything he does is veiled in secrecy he talks about democracy but he seeks to overthrow democratically elected governments just because he doesn't like them this is a kind of megalomania on a james bond villain scale and it really should be stopped. a legal controversy is brewing in the u.s. that's after new hampshire's attorney general launched an investigation into
a case where an immigrant was cleared of six counts of domestic violence by a local court all destined bahati a thirty three year old refugee from congo was arrested in august last year after he allegedly assaulted a pregnant woman several times however he was released the following month after his lawyer raise doubts on whether behati was legally fit to stand trial in march this year the suspect was cleared of all charges after a local prosecutor found the hearty to be culturally incompetent we discuss this case and its ramifications with antiwar activist daniel schorr and conservative writer mike chain of each. people are afraid now in america to say you're in america welcome to america we have certain values we have certain rules on place if you say that you might be xenophobic right so the city prosecutor didn't want to be seen as enough and because of that he decided to let somebody off on the cultural relativism defense so this is the end result of political correctness and cultural
marxism and the social justice warrior ism run amok mexicans and muslims and foreigners and immigrants to this country. every day this spate of hate crimes that have did this country. sort of think this is some of the environment of in bracing immigrants is ridiculous when hate crimes are on the rise and just for being mexican when you can be terrorized a lot of these hate crimes do end up being hoaxes the flip side is there's just a lot of hate in the world and there's a lot of hate in humanity if i walk down the street in a certain neighborhoods in new york as a white person i would face racism from other cultures it doesn't sound like you feel safe to visit new york we feel bad for. certain of it but mike you put forth a very grim pessimistic view of humanity is though somehow hate were a natural thing honor killings cannot come to america domestic battery cannot be normalized abusing women and genital mutilation of children cannot be allowed
that's individual responsibility sure but as a culture we have to send a message and we can't be afraid to say that this is america this is the west and we don't do things the way a lot of other people do in the rest of the world blah to so many people come to america it's not because america is the greatest place in the world is because people have been diffused and they've been robbed of their opportunities whether it's in the dominican republic go in brazil or in the middle east because of us foreign policy and u.s. interventionism we do have a mass we should be trying to help these other countries creating save zones in other countries but if you're going to to come. there cannot be a cultural the fence. ok it's ok to hit my wife. emmanuelle micron has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the top first securing the french presidency and then landslide victory for his party but his ambitions go even further than that judging by some of his actions.
packs a punch. yampa is the john oliver of hard to be americans do the same we are apparently better than booth. and see people you've never heard of love redacted tonight not the president of the world bank so take. me seriously send us an e-mail. to trump handshake at the g. twenty is now part of history well the meeting appeared to go well both presidents said so moving forward almost by law the relationship is problematic best are the u.s. and russia destined to be enemies. greetings
and salutations you cannot have a revolution without dancing and you cannot have dancing without music revolution will always and forever be intertwined with music because most often it's the musician the poet who channels the rhymes and heart beats of change that often starts as a soft a logic whisper creeping out from the underground and then crescendos into a grand opera of cultural change and up people and that intertwined history is why the musician will always be an agent or instrument if you will of change their lyrics and melodies can shine a light on the injustices and bring attention to the under-represented and even helped bring down the giants themselves. today let's find out what comes first the revolution or the music as watching the hawks strikes
