russian lawmakers are preparing a response to a new u.s. sanctions bill targeting the energy sector the e.u. has already slammed the prospects of washington interfering in europe's business do . other headlines this morning the biggest name you've never heard of a long time aide of a number of u.s. house democrats is arrested on charges of committing financial fraud but that's only one of the many controversies surrounding the house stuff over tell me more about that and coming up. the e.u. praises migrant relocation efforts but it merges german media's been pushing a positive narrative while covering the crisis.
good morning it's thursday the twenty seventh of july a.t.m. here in moscow this is r.t. international with me kevin no in and first russian lawmakers preparing their response to a new anti russia sanction bill that was overwhelmingly approved by the u.s. house of representatives the restrictions are aimed at punishing companies with ties to russia's energy sector according to reports major businesses have been lobbying against these new measures in congress and it's not only bolted nationals of the energy sector like b.p. like exxon mobil but also manufacturers like boeing and ford the new bill could also complicate here appear in energy companies ties with russia there are fears there would be disruption to the major joint project called the nord stream to pipeline for a start when finished it's set to pump gas from russia to europe under the baltic sea companies from germany austria france and the netherlands have agreed to pay
half the cost of it investing almost five billion euro in the project that is kind of mopin looks at how other countries that have reacted now to the prospect of new sanctions here. the new sanctions targeting russia north korea and iran are not exactly a big hit in europe the head of the e.u. commission decided to give the world a piece of his mind the u.s. bill could have unintended unilateral affect the impact the e.u. use energy security interests america first kind of mean that europe's interests come last yes everybody has their own agenda and right now the usa is having a hard time getting everyone else to play ball take a look at north korea right now their economy is booming the best it's been in seventeen years at least that's according to estimates from the south korean central bank right now their g.d.p. their imports and their exports are rising despite international sanctions now
donald trump decided a long time ago who he thinks is to blame for that. grade between china and north korea almost forty percent in the first quarter so much for china working with us but we had to give it a try and iran is a similar story even before the nuclear related sanctions were lifted under the iran deal india and china were buying their oil india imports one hundred ten million tonnes of crude to year we will not decrease imports from iran iran is an important country for india disappoint us and european sanctions on iran china will import crude oil from iran based on demand and will not be influenced by the edicts of any country can america impose sanctions on other countries outside of the u.n. the answer can always be no because the post world war two author of a us dollar gemini right out of washington d.c. the so-called washington consensus is disintegrating it's falling apart and that
the u.s. doesn't seem to want to take on reality they want to live in the past or they want to believe that they're the police one of the world and they're going to impose sanctions they're just pushing term. really into the arms of russia and then you've got an enormous axis of power through it germany russia and china and they're going to get out of the u.s. dollar how's that going to help the american economy if the u.s. dollar loses its position as world reserve currency us leaders love capitalism and economic freedom but in the twenty first century global economy just because u.s. leaders don't want to trade with somebody doesn't mean that everybody else has to follow their lead cable mop and r t new york. knicks is the only one thousand consultants who work for congressional democrats has been arrested on bank fraud charges were trying to leave the country it was a staffer of debbie wasserman schultz the former d.n.c.
chairwoman nazis' jacqueline vogel takes a closer look at the case. a former congress i.t. aide was arrested by the f.b.i. on monday when trying to board a flight abroad that was for alleged bank fraud and well possible bank fraud in fleeing the country doesn't look good for him on the one his case gets more interesting the deeper you look i. i i i . mean one family has a few skeletons in their closets back in february they were accused of charging congress workers double the actual cost for i.t.
equipment and pocketing the profits and other reports suggest that they have been stealing and exposing sensitive data to outside sources and some people on the hill fear that the group may have been blackmailing house members i don't know what they have but they have something on someone something is wrong to them mark interestingly enough they remain on washington's payroll and despite the accusations the ones enjoyed an unusual amount of loyalty from congressman one even saying the claims were based on his lawn a phobia i wanted to be sure individuals not being singled out because the nationalities of the religion they provided great service for me and there were certain times in which they had permission by me to access some of my dates among the family patrons with debbie wassermann schultz including when she was still democratic national committee chair she gave them wrong a one direct access to her i pad which contain e-mails which infamously appeared in the d.n.c. leak schultz also reacted badly when capitol police attempted to search one of her
laptops is a member loses the equipment is free and it is found. by the capitol police or your staff and it is identified at that number members apartment it is supposed to be returned yes or no depends on the circumstances under my understanding the capitol police is not able to confiscate members equipment when the member is not under investigation i think you are violating the rules when you when you conduct your business that way. interesting that there would be consequences surely that warrants a bit of attention however the story never made it to the headlines of any major outlets in theory this story should be huge it's up all the right ingredients politics hacks sensitive data leaks and even blackmailing but of course it's nothing one very popular trend a finger pointing at the kremlin. r.t. washington d.c. . john hagee from the us middle east alliance told us the mainstream media turns a blind alley though to stories like this mainstream media are in cahoots with the
d.n.c. you know they have just turned a blind eye it just seems that the mainstream media is intent on doing the bidding of the democratic national committee i'd never thought that that journalism in this country did reach such a low as to be so you know unfair in their analysis to be so politically motivated in the way that they cover because they cover cases there's so many questions so i hope it doesn't go away and i think it's important for the non-mainstream media to keep to the beat this drum so that it gets the coverage it deserves and that concert there are consequences for any illegal activities that they may have taken place. seems june was a record month for migrant relocations in europe according to the e.u. commission it says that three thousand new arrivals were moved to other countries
bringing the total number to twenty four thousand is warning to that the ongoing influx is putting the e.u. under pressure now this statement comes just after the east top court rejected lawsuits filed by hungary in slovakia challenging the ruling that they must take in hundreds of asylum seekers those countries not alone either in having serious concerns over migrant crisis as germany continues to pursue a so-called open door policy a recently released report shows that the media there is taken a favorable stance towards the new arrivals we are all over as more. back in twenty fifteen crowds of germans flocked to welcome refugees to their towns and cities. i wasn't the whole story according to the results of an investigation into the german media's coverage of the migrant crisis they also brought a foundation claims that german media was more keen to present the image of the commons called tour than to give and time to those who were critical of government
policy on refugees driving a wedge between right and left in society up until late autumn twenty fifteen hardly any editorials dealt with the concerns fears and resistance of a growing part of the population coming in two hundred pages long researches trawled through newspapers online reports and broadcast media they found that on average new sources were carrying seventeen articles daily on the migrant crisis during the summer of twenty fifteen the report claims dissenting voices were excluded from the conversation that any warning who asked questions who were refugees were or why they came to germany were shouted down as populists all racists and the message came right from the top. it's important for us not to follow those who would call nasa hatred and the heart sick to exclude others while
claiming german their dentity for themselves. what is of concern is the reports claim that the coverage of the migrant crisis has damaged the reputation of journalism in germany a considerable part of the population believes that journalism is apparently forced to manipulate information the report cites a recent poll by the university of mines in which over half of those surveyed said they felt lied to by the press with around a quarter same day believe that the government and the media were counting glove prompting the chants of lucan pious or or lying press government and anti migrant gatherings. these are all over r.t. . political scientists verna parts of believes that the media's coverage of the migrant crisis is a road of people's trust in traditional news sources. germans usually trust the
media and stare for it was quite an exception there they felt that there was a split between what they were observing and what the read in the newspaper during his month or so great influx of immigrants the media said well we have an educational function we really have to show the germans that things are different than both think but actually the media firms elsewhere are carrying their point too far and this came as a deception for many months and we could measure in the part of the clyde in trust to the media as a reaction on the side of the media journalists started to apologize for having not properly fulfilled their professional duty is during this migration crisis. a man was killed on wednesday in protests on the first ever national strike called by the opposition in venezuela at the strike was initiated after the president called for a vote to elect a constituent assembly to redraft the country's constitution violent protests
started in april with demonstrators demanding that the president and the government resign police responded with force over one hundred protesters have reportedly been killed since the protests began are to spoke exclusively with venezuela's president the durham says the opposition's been following the same strategy for years in fact . the liberal i think the opposition has been doing this for eighteen years first against hugo chavez and for the past four years against me there's no other way to resolve conflicts in the country than through democracy and elections in may for three and a half weeks i tried to establish direct dialogue with the opposition i wanted to include them in parliament but they refused and this is a period of political isolation and all they drifted into right when radicalism what are their imprisoned by a strategy of violence and ignoring those who voted for him. but i mean is waylays ready for any scenario i think is insane for the extreme right in the us to be talking of a blockade against venezuela in fact they've already started in india. blockade
against our financial systems this was the cause the crisis over the past three years but we have economic strength in venezuela always pays what and fulfills its responsibilities in two thousand and seventeen two thousand and eighteen and two thousand and nineteen our country will continue to feel them. well this morning's headlines on the way and also a game that simulates war between nato and russia gets a critical review to what after the break. in case you're new to the game this is how it works the economy is built around a corporation from washington to washington media the media the voters elected to business to run this country business if. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before
. the future is to strengthen the partnership between the member states and the secretariat of course and this partnership combined night has to be governed by one basic understanding or points. really in the mix. to have the flexibility to undertake the programs and. must do most. people want all of member states. against. next an a board game that simulates a full scale war between nato and russia is now available in stores across the
world is it popular well polly boyd got hold of a copy ship trotted out for itself. hi jerry pauley i'm going to be reviewing a new game that's come to our attention here who's in strikes military strategy type of board game that pits nato against russia obviously in eastern europe very robust box it could be bulletproof but i'm going to be on boxing it and telling you all you need to know about it in order to find out what this game is all about. very hard to unlock oh there we go face of the man himself very complicated instruction manual here you can't have a board game without a board the theatre of war the markers of nuclear strikes this is
just a to play a game you can be the good guys that nato or you can be russia i am recruited in our office engineer bad and i'm going to be an external conference room in order to give putin strikes its first sortie. where we go are you fond of board games than the old school this is the instruction manual. there are these markers the russian forces the nato forces which are made up of various other battalions it's one joint game of so let's do you want to be nato or should i yeah i'll be russia obviously. i'm going to put the russian ones where i think the russian ones should go but you put your nato ones are using the nato ones going to get a. great
. so you planning on on taking crimea back so what's what's going on here now unlike most war games the movement factors and the units all depend on computers. i think you actually have to be a nato general or a russian in general to understand how this works you know this this game doesn't have to reflect reality it's going to pepper this with russian battalions do we have any left it to use is the only option ok thank you very very much ben. ok guys stay that was a little taste of pretend strakes for you this tribute is pretty special it's probably the only one you're going to see of this game because the man in the specialist store where we bought this said that we were the first people to ever practice strikes if you will like it changed to restore justice to the world order this is a pretty good place to start i hope you enjoyed my review don't forget to check out
the next one and definitely subscribe. paulino get back to work or about serious things to. video food she's emerge showing that a man killed by police in atlantic city in america twenty fourteen was shot forty five times the incident took place following a car choice of the man apparently refused to be searched by officers warning you may find the images coming up here disturbing. the police officers seen firing as soon as the man who was armed got out of his vehicle we can't show you all the images next but the officers continue shooting suffice to say long after the man continued to pose a threat we discussed what to vist. actually the police in america are trained to shoot at the body mass to shoot at the to shoot for the vital organs and not to
shoot in the legs there's. always an excuse for using deadly force but let's be honest these kinds of excesses will continue to happen as long as we have persons who are teaching the police to be brutal and violent instead of training to treat american citizens as if we are people not combatants officers in the us are regularly accused of employing brutal policing tactics is a look back at some of the high profile incidents recently is. all right. you know you can see right here. we have this many show police shootings nationally it is the rational that america calls itself
a human rights leader when the very basis of this country has been systematic violation of human rights but it seems as if there's a conspiracy by the police to not shoot and if necessary kill violent dangerous. people criminals and our society and they kill people who are not dangerous. on friday the international space station we welcoming three new crew members the fun launch preparations are well underway at the baikonur cosmodrome for it. it's three men and thus is randy bresnik russia's sergei resent ski and europe's old assessment of these years old so small and also polina sprawling is no europe

last few years we have been changing to what we call it in program critical of the assessment so at every point of time the security is being assessed not by then the u.n. staff should leave but by what that eadmund should be made for them to be better to be present them to deliver their broke and. that's a program to come on kevin oh and thanks for watching this morning check us out keep up to date with us of course on social media keep of course like the stories too breaking twenty four seven that. don't call.
i. i. i i i. well the one nine hundred eighty s. of course the crash of eighty seven gave us. the program trading and the bailout meisters down there at the punch protection team and they government stepped in and started to have control of price discovery. if we take for instance the size large enough to destroy a city say forty meters or so of the million or so asteroids out there oh we have
discovered perhaps a percent or so of that ten thousand of them. so in other words i means that ninety nine percent of them are undiscovered so you should expect that the great majority of asteroids are very close to the earth to come as a surprise for. what they are. and will still be. the best time to meet and of what he. does a little. truth telling will tell you the media tools and you know real time will
tell you take one thing as a little little to none of the well you don't leave it at that tough and leave me. welcoming of the me will be the north globe including. just a little to. the left of you. and listen to one of those but again with another with an open. it does out this illuminate motor vehicle or the i don't think that over there what's. the point of the little. ok defense of when they are put under if this. goes on in the past as the months which rose to her term of one hundred words.
were. arranged the national socialist movement. political party in america educated. and the house. nation was founded on white america solution to the problem is the national socialist was much if you are tired of listening to. a whine about no force and you wonder why our borders home in america are less understood to have reached the greater competition the american dream question. and
remember if you're not the solution you're part of. where they go oh yeah. where the abu hafs you won't get him. go find somebody. is this a good area to hunt for immigrants. generally it's hit and miss we never really know for sure but this has been a active area this is a black water jug and said mexico is probably one of the few places on this planet where you comparators bar water in an opaque container and they do this because they think it's a little easier you can see yourself instead of walking around with a reflector over a bright colored container they make black this is the icon of drug and human smuggling in arizona. are you picking it up and leaving it there i think my german shepherd wants a new chew toy it's.
