2:02 am
making his rounds on america's t.v. networks now rightly or wrongly donald trump is under a lot of heat facing an impeachment inquiry and rudy giuliani intends as the president's lawyer to tell the other side of the story but the president's talking about is however there is a. lot of evidence that the ukrainians created false information people were ignoring that that biden played a role in getting these collusion allegations covered up i didn't ask him to look into joe bugner yes knew of the allegation of the related my client which tangentially involved joe biden in a massive bribery not unlike what he did in china one of the points that rudy giuliani has been making is that there seems to be evidence of potential corruption from joe biden and his son in both ukraine and china now the biden campaign seems to believe this talking point is off limits in an unprecedented move we've actually
2:03 am
got the joe biden campaign asking t.v. networks not to interview rudy giuliani saying that what he says in these interviews is somehow out of bounds we want you to demand the 1000 service to the facts you no longer book rudy giuliani a surrogate for donald trump who has demonstrated that he will knowingly and willingly lie in order to advance his own narrative it's now an open question will t.v. networks in the united states that claim to be fair balanced in showing both sides of the issue actively boycott one side the president of the united states aside to be precise let's not forget that the debunked conspiracy theory that somehow russia and trump colluded in order to win the white house was in the headlines all over the us media and at this point rudy giuliani says they are conspiring to silence him why because they're afraid of the facts and the reason they want me to be silenced is not because i'm funny and it's because i've got. facts and because he's guilty and these folks are repeat offenders. of the co-authors of the letter is

a need to done now she was a former white house communications director under obama and it's reported that as white house communications director she declared war on fox news the white house had no dealings with a major t.v. network now some saw that as an affront to the 1st amendment let's be realistic here howie you know and they are they are widely viewed as you know a part of the republican party take their talking points put them on the air take their opposition research put him on the air and that's fine is this move against rudy giuliani the 1st step in pushing pro trump voices off of mainstream american t.v. networks or is it just a presidential race where all means are good let's talk to new yorkers we're not idiots we all know what channels feel a certain way which shows officer. that's what they do all the time they try to shut out the other side. i think that giuliani should be able to speak and biden
2:05 am
should be able to refute any any churches it's rudy giuliani i think he's earned the right to be a t.v. b. in fact he was the mayor of new york city through a very traumatic situation not 11 i think everybody has the right to be interviewed . that's when you knew there was a more christie even here in the democratic party stronghold of new york city seems like very few americans are sold on the idea that t.v. networks should be boycotting the president's lawyer kaleb up in r.t. new york. the reuters news agency has been caught out to misusing an out of date quote describing iran in june 29000 as belligerent excited something the commander of the wrong they're a space force that had said 8 months earlier fescue attain explains. timing is everything has worked as has apparently only just discovered the news agency has got itself into a bit of a pickle over this article in it
2:06 am
a senior figure in the rayney a military is quoted shaking his belligerent fist at washington and saying it better watch its back u.s. forces in the region were a threat but they are now an opportunity for iran they do not talk about war with iran because they know how susceptible the now the head of the gods aerospace division i mean already hajizada said on state television sounds hostile and sounds like a lighter fluid being added twin raging fire because avoid claims that hatches are to set this in june this year a month which saw tensions between tehran and washington unprecedented heights troop deployments tanks sieges drones being shot down and fingers on the retaliation trigger the world watched on as the 2 countries seemingly lot towards a military conflict president tropper approve military strikes against iran last night and then changed his mind u.s. surveillance drone flying above the straits of hormuz over international waters shot out of the sky by iranian missile present approved military strikes on
2:07 am
a number of iranian targets of an american drone by the iranians last night this is a direct attack on a u.s. military asset and given the quote fit the favored narrative of iran iran the wool monger a iran the disobedient child the headline got picked up by news outlets from al-jazeera to the new york times but like i said timing is everything because hunches are to set this not in june 29000 as reuters reported but almost 8 months earlier in november 28th teen during a poor cost on a rainy and state t.v. . be worth threat for us before now the. right in the us about warren. attack she because their french are almost over them for sure even back in november the comment would have got washington's all up after all it doesn't take kindly to threats unless of course it's the one making them but at
2:08 am
a potentially explosive cross where it's in a raid in u.s. relations it seems reasonable to suggest that we should have stopped just that much more cautious lead checked its box just not much more virally but hey june it's all the same to reuters roots of the quote from iranian state television here in which we always mourn it's online on june the 21st the quote reflects iran's usual stance so it's no surprise that this is being issued on numerous occasions before reuters journalists are history to our trust principles maintaining independence integrity and freedom from bias in our news gathering we stumble our reporting of this story now everyone can forgive an honest mistake but they're just a couple of sticking points here $11.00 rocky the bridge agency which uncovered the false report started to probe a bit deeper it got posted that is what has just stopped replying to what should be cautious of fooling victim to the crime one accuses others of want as is probably
2:09 am
feeling but quit now given its earlier report on how iran has become a monster of dissent from ation voters has unearthed more than 70 websites which look like news outlets but are actually channels for a renewed propaganda and fake news people ask of influence operations actually have any real world impact and in the case of the iranian campaign we can say yes it has and 31 case of honest miss reporting is a mistake but anything move begins to look like a pattern and that is more back in 2018 reuters published this article and with this post quoting those belligerent iranian generals gave this citation iran apparently had its eye on expanding its weapons program puts. u.s. bases and ackroyd carriers under threat are those routine loves us to rain ians but wait let's just rewind one sentence today we are working on increasing the range of
2:10 am
missiles therefore one of our most important plans is increasing the range of missiles no munition we're working on beyond visual range missiles and ammunition and consider no limitations in this regard for ourselves because the air force should heighten the country's deterrent power along with other armed forces to missiles all those u.s. bases and aircraft carriers which are suspended in the sky but a watch out for you can i say shin which markets itself as a fisted us fact checking if it's short been unapologetically loose lipped or one of today's most politically volatile topics. he revealed that twitter's middle east editor is also an officer in the british army's franco logical warfare unit r.t. these are a look at how compatible those 2 roles are. i have for years been questioned as to the editorial policies of twitter well when it comes to the social media giants
2:11 am
operations in the middle east it turns out the british army has quite the hound it . my focus is the future of preparing the economy tomorrow that's ready to fight for middle east has discovered that twitter's head of editorial specializing on the middle eastern region also moonlights for the u.k. army former journalist gordon mcmillan has openly shared this information when his linked in page on the 77th progress made macmillan serves in is no ordinary unit created back in 2015 it conducts non-lethal warfare with a proud slogan influence an outreach these warriors fight their battles on the front lines of social media seeking to change and influence behavior our aim is to challenge the difficulties of modern warfare use alone lethal engagement and legitimate nonmilitary lever's as a means to adept behaviors of the opposing forces and adverse to reese it's no
2:12 am
wonder the middle east has become a priority for the british army with its forces having played quite a role destabilizing the region in the past decade. or so great 77 and he got plenty to get its teeth into general nick carter the head of the u.k. army was full of high hopes for his social folgers in a speech he delivered last year 77 pre-k. the show should come back to we've got some remarkable talents when it comes to social media. production design and indeed arabic poetry those sorts of skills we can't afford to retain in the regular component but they are the means of us
2:13 am
delivering capability in a much more imaginative way that we might have been able to do in the past and at least one of them seems to have lived up to the potential since gordon mcmillan joined twitter in 2013 the social media giants a suspended iranian press agencies and banned thousands of middle eastern accounts although mcmillan was proven to be working on 2 different fronts simultaneously puts a doesn't seem all that bothered simply referring to it as extra curricular activity we actively encourage all our employees to pursue external interests in line with our commitment to healthy corporate social responsibility and we will continue to do so so our twitter wants to maintain how independent and unbiased it is its policy of encouraging staff to pursue outside interests coming back to haunt it those being the u.k. government propaganda operation which has attempted to create clusters to draw in journalists and academics in order to essentially promote particular agendas in
2:14 am
relation to clearly international affairs and this kind of manipulation of the information environment is profoundly unfair a practice and ultimately chronically dangerous it is perhaps not surprising that you have employees of twitter so for example who are involved in operations or propaganda operations if you allow governments to start to shape what people think and understand about what's going on in the world in a way that is going on through brigade 77 and again are issues you see any u.k. when you do look you maintain any time to check or balance or control no government is severely limited we asked the british army 3rd person for comment he told r.t. there was no relationship or were. between the 77th brigade and twitter other than using it as a social media platform. e.u.
2:15 am
countries are tightening controls at the borders amid a new wave of migrants into italy we have that story and more after the break. you know world of big partisan movie lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to get the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks.
2:16 am
both scandal is ongoing the whole negative interest rates are the same is that we work better in the bond market these things are happening or experiencing a breakdown in markets all over the world so what we have we dodged one bullet call the we work i.p.o. but we're getting gunned down in a financial bullets from financial bad guys shooting out as with impunity. welcome back germany has announced plans to carry out more random border searches in order to discourage migrants from moving illegally around the european union last week the german interior minister xtend it border controls for another 6 months due to the high number of illegal entries germany is not the 1st country to
2:17 am
have reintroduced border controls norway sweden denmark austria and france have already undertaken similar measures in order to prevent illegal migration meanwhile the number of migrants arriving on italian shores is on the rise again that saw the dip in ski picks up the story. under the cup of darkness fresh arrivals set foot on the telly so. these migrants were picked up off to being spotted by the coast guard in the mediterranean over the space of a few hours by the boats full of people also landed on lampedusa the island for years has been at the front line of italy's migration courses.
2:18 am
former interior minister mr you said beany may not be everyone's cup of tea but his hardline anti immigration policies did seem to resonate with italians his most famous perhaps and most popular move was to close italy's ports to charity rescue ships before so the nice party believe came to power as part of the coalition italy had been described ask collapsing under the weight for my quince in 2017 almost 120000 or right by a series in 2018 the yourself we need close the ports that dropped to a little over 23000 many had hoped that the end was in so it's now that seems to be fading we're going to shave i think there has already been a new immigration pick this is the beginning of migration from producer so you see
2:19 am
very hard to i'm especially as worried about over the small boats that i'm here i would look one. dollar and it will be lovely to know about this i hope that so me my feet turn to the government so that he might have the let's say and he clip him in the island and stop this traffic. now italy has a new government one that is more pro e.u. and us distanced itself from the politics of sell beanie it's using much softer language over the issue of migration and it's where you open the ports for some this is the start of a slippery slope will you follow. through with rods and been one of my clients that. you have been very much involved in the growth of going forward and how it's going to life do you think you're going to make it before you could leave the state. because never before. migration blanket's very
2:20 am
soon. in the 1st few weeks of september official figures show that around 1700 my quince landed in italy via c. that's double what it was in the same period last year now while 4 e.u. countries have agreed a relocation plan for migrants that are right in italy this is only a temporary emergency mechanism itself has to be presented to of the e.u. members later this month and it will remain voluntary that's raising some eyebrows in lampedusa there is also skepticism over the offer of help from the e.u. well you might say they do nothing at all everyone thinks about themselves q what is your idea i would like to trust. because everyone has their own interests in europe germany looks after its own interest from stowe's to cradle yet you see i
2:21 am
believe you reap looks more to tell me interests than to those of a single country that has often left alone too many times. even if even members agree on a way forward to deal with migration it still doesn't resolve the issues italy continues to face as a result of migration that's already taken place 6 countries have already. we imposed random border checks to stop migrants moving and stop and search operations are being ramped up on the german border and if the levels of immigration rise once more many italians fear that they will be once again left struggling alone with the burden jollity been ski for after. they have been fighting for justice for decades but are not giving up but on a plantation workers in nicaragua want compensation for the damage done to their health by american made pesticides.
2:22 am
way your handle when i was sick i was working and when i felt well at the job they would not let me work they sent me it's a hospital i'd feel well and high levels of korea. that local might have died and i remember that once i was cutting cane and i had a headache and bone pain fever i wanted to continue working to improve myself and work but the fever was so terrible that i fainted in the cane and i was brought to hospital where doctors said my korea team had changed by 2 points.
2:23 am
on husband was working with the cane but he died sometimes our kids were waiting for him with good not so far from the plantation so they were affected too and got sick my brothers mario and francisco died working on the king they didn't get any help because they didn't have insurance. they never told us what we know now and i don't think it is right for them to spray the poison because now we are affected by the worst thing here is they don't want to meet our demands the companies owner is deaf to us. supposedly the poison they sprayed came from the plains while we were cutting the cane the choice and into the forty's so we were being afflicted the time.
2:24 am
yes of course i'm not receive compensation but at least one thermally can so i can help them just you could do believe that they should buy hands and recognize our rights our miners and our organs which were made sick imo we were put in these conditions so they are the ones responsible for our own that our own with. the nicaraguan courts awarded over $800000000.00 in compensation to more than a 1000 plantation workers and their families but the us based pesticide makers have refused to pay up however the case is now being heard in france where those firms have significant assets that work as a lawyer stuart smith explains why they hope to find justice in europe there were originally cases filed in california the courts the united states basically said it's better to follow your case in your home country the defendants removed all their assets from those countries so there's no assets to seize in those countries
2:25 am
so you would then have to take that judgment try to seize their assets to satisfy the judgment and that's the process we're going through now in europe france. is believes in the rule of law. they certainly are aware that you know the proof is in the record of the case these men were tested. sterility was documented. and it's time that they because. the companies being sued are dow shell and occidental they said the nicaraguan courts lack of direct jurisdiction efforts to obtain compensation in the u.s. have also failed dow said in a statement that the french courts would not find the nicaraguan judgments enforceable either lawyer stuart smith again says it's time for the companies to pay up. chemical ringback causes to realty in men you know the words they're on able to have children it affects the sperm atos it in men to where they cannot
2:26 am
fertilize a female and it also increases cancer rates among women and men felt that these victims had not been compensated and they were really significantly hurt by this and we took up the case and are we going to collect these judgments or or settle these cases one way or the other the company is going to have to pay its people and he went on see we love to hear your thoughts on all of our stories so do get in touch my following us on social media and you can call your comments that will be back at the top of the hour with the latest headlines john is that if you can. the world is driven by dreamers shaped past and person.
2:27 am
who dares thinks. we dare to ask. rather than to follow and that comes out of the cold war we want to set up our one among one of our them. a fondness for the main t.v. way to hide not the high i might have. thought the salon months in front of the office and so on. from a photo of a muslim in a lock of the. neck
2:28 am
that it is someone that would do the board. sal you take shootings if punxsutawney phil and had taught us anything it's that predicting the future can be a few tile and deborah hawk watchers but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try and the best way to know your future is to study your past and its wall street's past sins that now has many very concerned about our economic future you see back in mid september the new york federal reserve started handing out emergency overnight
2:29 am
loans to the big banks starting off at a rate of $75000000000.00 a day as well as handing out 3 different $30000000000.14 day term loans to the banks as well well apparently these numbers they just weren't big enough to cover the bank short term loan needs and according to wall street on parade after the demand for the 1st 14 day loan was more than double the 30000000000 that they had at the new york observer the new york bad boosted the next term loans to 60000000000 and increased its overnight loans to 100000000000 wow. and just who is getting these loans is being kept under wraps but we do know that the new york federal reserve can only give out these repo transactions as they're called in wall street speak to just 24 banks and they're the usual rogue's gallery including j.p. morgan chase bank of america as well as foreign banks like deutsche bank and credit suisse now i know what you're thinking like why am i hacked to these massive banks
2:30 am
like j.p. morgan chase who holds more than 1.6 trillion in deposits need billions in short term loans if they are sitting on trillions well that my friends is a very good question and just who could seek and demand answers for questions like that as the united states congress for one but tragically they're just too busy campaigning politicking grandstanding and what they do could could the real question is could we be at the doorstep of another 2007 style great recession or much much worse well we can't truly predict the future but we can start watching the hawks. as. to. whether they like it that i got.
