a handle on where it's going to go. by there this is out international money is kevin owen franks will be with this is just turned one of the afternoon here now and as you see the red take on the screen breaking news germany's economy minister says there's the possibility of the e.u. taking counter measures in the americas and see russia sanctions bill the restrictions are aimed at punishing companies with ties to russia's energy sector that's raised fears and of major disruption to the major russia the joint project the nord stream two gas pipeline. it is bad that the us has left the common line it's had was europe for sanctions against russia there is a possibility of counter sanctions against think it is. germany talking potentially tough peter all of our europe correspondent pete tell us more what else did the
german economy minister have to say. well we heard from mr plus they're saying that she's on happy with the situation and also that the united states isn't exactly walking in lockstep with the e.u. when it comes to this whole issue of sanctions against russia right now but she isn't the only one we've also heard from the unions as well who are concerned about potential impact on their members that work within the energy sector and on thursday here in perlin there's been a meeting a conference taking place from the german committee of e.u. economic relations there and they've described the sanctions as they're written right now as unacceptable and fact the managing director of that organization which is an organization which resists with represents german and business interests throughout eastern europe spoke to r.t. he had this to say about the current sanctions that have been proposed houses do
you think it's a very. good use to those who choose for resolution. image. of. but it's not just here in europe that business is being unhappy about these proposed sanctions over in the united states we understand that serious players serious big multinational corporations were lobbying representatives before they went into vote to try and convince them not to support this bill that didn't work but the names on the list include of course energy giant such as be in exxon mobil but also other big multinationals searchers ford and boeing as well so i think it stands we're still going to have to wait to see what the ultimate reaction will be from the european union if the sanctions go ahead as planned could the nuclear option be triggered which would be the e.u. placing economic sanctions on the u.s.
business well that's something that not many would like to see brought it's certainly an option it's still on the table if you take what the german economy minister and energy minister had to say earlier on on thursday we're keeping an eye on this of course could be a big one could kick it off and of course still waiting to hear what any official russian reaction is going to be the official line so further taken the time to think about it pete for now thanks for the update so u.s. sanctions do they actually work are they effective well let's take a look at north korea for instance south korea's central bank estimates that last year of its neighbors economy grew by almost four percent after bouncing back from a downturn in twenty fifteen pyongyang's also boosted its exports and continues to develop its nuclear capabilities so maybe not and it's not just north korea that see the degree of economic success in spite of u.s. sanctions there's also of course iran that's been forced over suffice economy and find new trading partners where coping with the measures is more detail on this now
than cullom open. 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. treaty between china and north korea grew 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 in your imports one hundred ten million tons of crude per year we would not decrease imports from iran iran is an important country for india despite u.s. and european sanctions on iran. china will 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 us the answer can always be no because the post world war two author of a us dollar germany right out of washington d.c. the so-called washington consensus is disintegrating it's falling apart and the us 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 policeman of the world and they're going to impose sanctions they're just pushing germany into the arms of russia and then you've got an enormous axis of power too and 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 in 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 up and r t new york. and i t consultants who work for congressional democrats has been arrested on bank fraud charges while trying to leave the country he was a star for of debbie wasserman schultz the former d.n.c. chairwoman now this guy's name him or an hour and he worked for democrats for over a decade with dozens of fish oils reportedly had access to some of the d.n.c.
chairs personal devices to jacqueline vogel takes a closer look at the case former congress r.t. eight was arrested by the f.b.i. on monday when trying to board a flight a broad that was for alleged bank fraud and more possible bank fraud in fleeing the country doesn't look good for him on a one his case gets more interesting the deeper you look. 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 then mark interestingly enough they remain on washington's payroll and despite the accusations the ones enjoyed an unusual amount of oil to hear from congressman one even saying the claims were based on this law 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 was 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 as that number members of that meeting it is supposed to be returned yes or no depends on this are. 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 to the. 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 is a us middle east alliance analyst he says the way stories like this are reported show the mainstream media in the us is it rock bottom. media are in cahoots with
the d.n.c. you know they have just turned a blind eye it just seems that that means you media is intent on doing the bidding of the democratic national committee i've 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 the cover of the 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 the the coverage it deserves and that concert there are consequences for any illegal activities that they may have taken place. a man was killed in venezuela when the stage in the first ever national strike called by the country's opposition
the protests comes in response to president the tourist decision to form a body that would read draft the crisis written country's constitution. or. was. r.t. spoke exclusively then with the venezuelan president he told us the opposition has been attempting to undermine the socialist government thing is. 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 it's a period of political isolation they drifted into right wing radicalism they were imprisoned by a strategy of violence and ignoring those who voted for them. but what 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 an indirect 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 it owes and fulfills its responsibilities in two thousand and seventeen two thousand and eighteen and two thousand and nineteen our country will continue to fill them. and you reporters found the german major of taken as a positive position on the influx of migrants into the country and paid little
attention therefore to people's concerns over the crisis. up into late autumn twenty fifteen hardly any editorials dealt with the concerns fears and looser resistance of a growing part of the population the report also reveals that on average new sources carried seventeen articles a day on the migrant crisis during the summer of twenty fifteen many promoting the success stories of those who came to settle it also states that dissenting voices were excluded from the discussion echoing the messages from the authorities. this point of it's important for us not to follow those who would have called an s a hatred in the heart sick to exclude others while claiming german their identity for themselves a considerable part of the population believes that journalism is apparently forced to manipulate information so how's that going with a recent poll in germany a show that over half of germans feel that they are being lied to by their media
and around a quarter say they believe the government works with the press to manipulate public opinion political scientists verna parts of also told us he believes biased reporting is a roading many germans faith in traditional news outlets germans usually trust the media and fear for it was quite an exception that 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 germans and we could measure in the polls at the clyde in trust to the media is 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. the
a city say forty meters or so of the million or so asteroids out there we have discovered perhaps a percent or so of the ten thousand of those. 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 was a surprise for. you dash cam video footage has been released showing police shooting a man forty five times in america's atlantic city and twenty fourteen the killing took place full in a car chase through four cities off the man it seems refused to be searched by offices warning you may find the images coming out to see. the way. the police officer is seen firing as soon as the man who was on. ha apparently on
the drug p.c.p. got out of his vehicle now we can't show you all the images but the offices continue shooting long after the man stopped posing a threat to discuss what happened to the peace activist he told us that police can always find a way of justifying heavy handedness. 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 offices in the us are regularly queues of employing brutal policing tactics is a look back at some other high profile incidents from just the last recent is.
all right. no you've got to stay right here. we have this many police shootings nationally it is irrational that america calls itself a human rights leader when the very basis of this country has been this 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 in our society and they kill people who are not dangerous. just quickly to anybody program coming up an important one of these worlds apart his about the possible deployment of u.n. peacekeepers in syria all of the boys can sit with
a man in charge of it. there has to be a peace agreement before there can be deployment of peacekeepers and you know the special representative of the secretary general mr stuff understood keeps on trying to bring the parties together in collaboration of course with the permanent members of the security council. notably the russian federation in the united states i was quite encouraged personally or go i don't deal with this matter that it grew but there was personally encouraged. the limited ceasefire agreement which was decided in the meeting between convicts and into prison rather than you put them and prison . and i think there are some good signs we hope for the best over the last few years we have been changing to what we call in program critical of the assessment so at every point of time the security of being assessed not to buy when the u.n. staff should leave but by what that eadmund should be made for them to be able to
be present and to deliver their progress. now here's a story about say that turns out to be little interest or let me hear a complex and technical ballgame that simulates all out war between europe and russia has failed to sell many copies and it's left those he did buy confused bullyboy got hold of want to self to try and see what all the fuss was not about. hi gary pauly i'm going to be reviewing a new game that's coming to our attention here who didn't strike serry robust box it could be bullet proof but i'm going to be on the 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 see it all the wall the mall because nuclear strikes 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 to your front of board games. this is the instruction manual. there are these markers the russian forces the nato forces beats one join groups a little 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 where 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 flocked to the units on the political commutes of. 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 the. with russian battalions do we have a new. truce is the any option ok thank you very very much ben. ok guys there that was a little taste of putin's strikes for you mr you just pretty special is 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 last people to ever practice putin strikes if you don't like it change to restore justice to the world order this is
a pretty good place to start. or if you've got time on your hands we'll do something that's maybe a bit more popular. the northern city of st petersburg will be hosting some of the most impressive joy of the sea as it's been billed. i'm kevin on for as i go by for today i hope you can join me get it sometimes tomorrow quick wrap of this i was breaking news germany's potentially going to retaliate if the u.s. and uses harsh new sanctions against the russian energy sector can be
a lot more coming up on the follow on line calling brazier throughout the afternoon he's a live update of thirty minutes. in case you're new to the game this is how it works in our economy is built around corporation corporations from washington to washington post media. voters elected to businessman to run this country business equals power who must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. what politicians do something to. put themselves on a lawyer. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to. have to go right to be for us this is what before three of them
or can't be good. interested always in the waters in the house. there should. flurry used to be a professional hockey player who won a stanley cup and the moment the girl who was living the dream but his success had a dark side in the time i was fourteen to sixteen i was raped one hundred fifty times by a coach of one i was more us in a dark room and so you know every time i close my eyes or from sleep after many years of silence he speaks up and unites with other victims so you are going from toronto to ottawa to help walk in an hour walk an idea victor walk us through create awareness and promote you're on the subject of child sexual abuse this type of behavior is absolutely use of the most because of the sentences that are handed
down through the justice system. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself in taking your last turn. but up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry for me i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath . but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was again still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promise. tenafly like it said one does not need a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with this one to. speak to you because there were no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its
maker. here's what people have been saying about rejected a night with the sixties full on awesome well the only show i go out of my way to logically is that really packs a punch. yeah it is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are apparently better than the things that i see people you never heard of love redacted tonight president of the world bank will take time to meditate seriously send us an email. this is the parking lot of the american embassy in guatemala. you can buy nuts which are called lime and beans while you're waiting in line for an american fisa. but i usually.
go for the low thirty asia but i'll show you. yet if it is good they've been they. what he has. plus what does he love you can only say we will see that little buddy a koala when i look at the way the norm was what has he done as many. pieces. there are three ways to get into the usa you can apply for a residence permit but the chances of getting one are next to impossible. you can also cross the border illegally not an easy task the third option apply for a tourist visa and overstayed so you remain.
