society from the part of the government tried to do. my work. the. work this is our capitalism goes disastrously wrong. tech giants take center stage in the alleged russian meddling scandal with google now joining facebook and twitter and declaring it will testify to congress that the hunt for signs of suppose that outside interference intensifies in the american media. council on the activists occupy local schools to prevent spanish police from closing down polling stations the region poised to vote in an independence referendum deemed illegal i'm not sure it lasts. today marks two years since russia launched its anti terror campaign in syria we
look back at what speed achieved in one time. that is just turned eighteen am here in the russian capital and you're watching r.t. international with me good to have you with us. it goes as it will testify to congress about alleged russian meddling in the twenty sixteen presidential elections is the latest tech giant off to facebook and twitter to make headlines in the song to pin down outside interference google will also reportedly conduct an internal investigation before it testifies in november only a twitter published a report on how would pass alleged russian meddling last year taking a swipe at all t.v. and the process by revealing confidential information regarding how much this channel spends on ads on the social media giant tuesday claims that nearly two
thousand tweets from r.t. accounts quote definitely or potentially targeted the u.s. markets but i think it's a witch i think that they don't care about what hillary was doing and they want to their very biased against the pain so far they haven't showed me and that was a that was a pro trump that was paid for by the russian government most of the time you could look at some of this stuff that's going around and i think it's all coming from sore losers you could just say well why don't you protect prior restraint this idea that you can't allow people to say things or do things i thought it would be better with more outlets and the internet to counteract some of this but it looks like sometimes this backfires and they're actually in the using the internet to try to stir up more trouble frankly i don't have the sensation that boy this is
a big deal you know if we don't find find out exactly what russians did to our elections you know the end of the world is coming i think that's a bit of fear mongering and the mainstream media is not letting up in its allegations against russia either and mustn't be seen as rachel maddow has accused russia of meddling everywhere from europe to the middle east peace american takes a closer look. i have reason to believe that russia does not watch this t.v. show so here's an experiment let's create a fake secessionist movement in the united states on the theory that russia will support secession of anyone in the west for any reason just because they'd literally love for the west to break apart lately it seems that rachel maddow covers russia more than any other topic for the past few months she's managed to connect almost every news event to russia she starts with fires at ukrainian ammunition depots but also conveniently fails to mention that such fires have happened multiple times two thousand and four in two thousand and five and two thousand and six but facts don't matter when her sole agenda is to blame russia now
we might not be here to prove her wrong but we can however note that her reports are filled with in accuracies and we saw that this week in iraq where russia was one of the only nations on earth that supported the northern iraq referendum in which the kurds voted this week that they should break off northern iraq from the rest of iraq and become their own independent nation now that's completely false the russian foreign ministry said in a statement that moscow supports unity sovereignty and territorial integrity but it doesn't stop there even somehow manages to drag catalonia into this there's also going to be another independence referendum this weekend in spain where the capital on the region is voting on whether or not they'd like to break off and form an independent state apart from spain turns out russia is supporting that one too and she says russia supports the catalan independence referendum but contrary to what matters says russia views the issue as spain's domestic affairs a position which spain's ambassador to russia believes to be perfect and
accusations of course don't even in their pressure for years in this country as actively promoted the secession of texas rachel maddow sentiments were quite similar to the rest of western media and one of the only pieces of evidence cited is that the group's members contained a grammatical errors but that's not the only time russia was under rachel maddow spotlight she's been accusing trump of colluding with russia. since the election you're not having a terrible terrible dream also you're not dead and you haven't gone to hell this is your life this is our election now this is us this is our country we know of the russian attack on our election russian efforts to try to elect donald trump president did not seem to be a super labor intensive process it wasn't like an industrial process but you do need people to do the work they're apparently still working now this summer still against us even though rachel maddow is enjoying these record high ratings it seems as if political discourse has been reduced to celebrity gossip which is quite unfortunate that there is no longer some sort of boundary between news and
entertainment so from the u.s. election to buying facebook ads and disrupt and i fell the search for a russian trace intensifies earlier we discussed the recent allegations with media analyst lionel and brant budowsky cola missed the hill news website. what is troubling to most americans here is that the latest example involves playing race cards in american politics from some russian sources to try to divide americans there are allegations with some that didn't at this point who are the russians russian government russian people people who speak russian what we don't know anti fracking as black lives matter how is that going to help donald trump oh i know because it causes chaos details don't matter just mentioned russia mentioned r t and we're off and running president putin and everyone else knows the exact truth
the whole truth about what happened when it will improve relations is to stop it stop whether anyone will admit it or not is not stop stop interfering in the american system stop promoting racism or racial division promoting any political candidate or party in the united states by not doing the things that were on the news now that they are doing one question what is the what is the best evidence you have to take all the time you want the best evidence you have of anything that you have tended to accuse russia of you know the senate intelligence committee democrats and republicans the f.b.i. every law enforcement agency every cattle intelligence agency in america many many and most republican senators and republican members of congress republican and i'm a liberal democrat republican agree with every word i just said about what russia has done i'm trying so hard to play along i swear to you i'm not trying to be don i
don't understand what if somebody were to pay an ad for black eyes matter n.f.l. boycott whatever it is so what if they were to buy an ad that is on the news already how is the russian buyout story somehow worse deeper affecting people more. then the other story on berry ten thousand times on ten thousand other platforms i would advise the russian government to think carefully about what i'm saying it is in their interest to follow the advice that i'm more freedom here which is to stop it. from us congressman ron paul also spoke to us about the relentlessness hogs on russia. this is what happens when empires. challenge they have to be very determined you know to control the information so i think that. that is a major problem and i think it will continue to exist but the
average american is not too much aware there's a look at the political sides of this but i do think that their their effort is to close this down you know and to not allow us to speak out and they are attacking our first amendment and if they look at radio free america i think that was directed towards trying to influence other countries and i think they're still around and like programs like that we have been involved in we've been cia's been very much involved in their own fears of elections and i think that's what we as americans should be concerned about i i i can understand everything that is being a huge been going on i just see what's happening in this post-election period as a result of a bunch of sore losers that were shocked that they didn't win the election and now they're out there to sort of go after a witch hunt but i think that the responsibility for us ought to be is what has our government done has our government been involved after they're in power and
unfortunately we're involved too much around the world. spain is council is very keen on independence referendum on sunday i was six thousand pounds and boxes will be used it up to two and a half thousand polling stations across the region the price of the votes majority old at the shut down of old polling stations but locals staged sit ins to prevent that aunties maintain a constant reports from one of the schools being used as a polling station. we're standing very close to one else these schools located here and the barcelona city center it is a place for voting on sunday and now police have been ordered to shut down old polling stations so the people of this neighborhood decided to stay within the doors of the school inside of the school to prevent this from happening now we see a lot of people here it is indeed quite crowded there is also
a lot of for media presence and we hear students inside the school clapping and shouting slogans in support of the referendum as well as their right to vote we managed to speak to one person who decided to stay inside you know you're going to what you see here was not planned beforehand we're living in this area of the city and with defending the place where we want to vote on some the if you tune a room and you will see people when the doors of this school open. places in order to keep defending this voting station catalan is poised to vote on sunday despite some fierce opposition to the smoke coming from madrid now the spanish authorities have already taken some harsh measures to prevent this referendum from going forward fourteen council and state officials have been arrested x. tripoli's has been sent into the city u.n. experts are saying that these sorts of restrictions are quite boring as they may violate fundamental human rights now meanwhile as the date off the referendum draws
near or at the splits and the council and society is really getting more and more avid and with the protests now taking into the streets people are protesting both for and against this vote and council and police as well basically a left caught between the two well they have to have a orders coming from a treat but at the same time they won't stay and the good graces so for local independent support us bring. the commitment of the catalan government is very clear we want people to be able to vote but we also have to accept that we're a police force with legal responsibilities we have disorder we cannot forget this and we must carry out our obligations without creating bigger problems than the ones that we're supposed to avoid well this is the biggest really constitutional crisis spain has seen in decades and nine seems to be willing to somehow backtrack
and meet the other one halfway. law and order in the region is being maintained by catalans regional police force this fully were placed spanish police almost ten years ago though it's still controlled by the spanish interior minister well council and forces have been tasked with preventing the upcoming vote from happening however they still seems they are unwilling to comply so madrid has deployed national military forces to the region to carry out the orders of the spanish government ahead of the referendum thousands of officers were sent to catalonia up to six thousand civil guards have been stationed at ports in the region arriving on spanish interior ministry charted cruise ships and they will stay in the region until october the third one councillor and police officer told r.t. that local officers why not fully comply with orders. the whole bottom of the just for the one of the main roles of the police is to guarantee the inner unity of our
society in this respect the catalonian police do not support those either for or against the referendum but rather all catalonians we have no choice but to obey the decisions of the court and prosecutor's office when it's about control over crowds and public order we need to see what happens in each individual case if we can't prevent something it doesn't mean we don't follow orders but that most probably we can't do anything about it other than the spanish government says the referendum is a legal and that quote the cessna secessionist initiative is to break the country and many spaniards are also against the idea of consular nion independence. came from the voted in a mocking ballots that was held in the spanish capital the question on the ballot paper said do you want castillo here to remain within spain hundred seventy referendum activists took part in the show as the division in spanish as clients he
grows the country's european partners are not rushing to offer help. in the future i mean that's. the reason. it's a. level that this is. the only one that is going to get it. you should call the either free or not to take side for their effort a referendum and they do pay their share note but as they say that the those measures taken but. the government goals are not acceptable imagine if the reporters then. do it over it is really done the same things that would be if we did not show scandals of that issue lucius could the measures everything and now we cover side there's no i would like to the european to you to do good for your closure to do what you piece. negociate surely should. and to learn about
another cause of tension from the twitter feed of a finnish and pay has published his a email exchange with the spanish ambassador in finland and pm self last ambassador to respect human rights in catalonia the spanish ambassador of applied saying that if one day finland will need a new solidarity it could go looking for that solidarity in council lonia political analyst john cuffed on peanuts says that west bank response was quite embarrassing the response is embarrassing it is preposterous it is certainly not a very diplomatic response and it clearly shows it displays that the spanish state apparatus the spanish authorities are extremely stressed and extremely nervous about what is going on in catalonia but they are afraid that cuts alone you will become an independent state and it is quite striking how do you clean union he's very quick to respond whenever it comes to crisis in turkey the crisis in russia were on the other hand whenever we have gross violations of fundamental rights and
peacekeeping when it was only about maintaining peace between states had an essentially symbolic value when you have militias when you have criminal groups. the symbol is not enough you need robust force. welcome back what is very monks two years since the russian military operation to defeat terrorism in syria started here are some of its key achievements.
player on the money can see just how much territory i still has lost in syria since september twenty fifth eighteen the russian defense ministry says eighty seven percent of syria is now free from islamic state aussie correspondents have witnessed some of the milestones of this russian campaign. this is the ad based in love hockey from which russian jets. against islam mix the targets here in syria. the it's.
time the planets are ready to go it's a moment's notice. it's quite incredible to be standing hay in the pulse of the dead this decade since fifty of about the people around the world feed would be reduced to dust in this ad fifty at the lay down by the romans almost two thousand years ago that isis staged one of its sickest massacres the russian military considers it the crowding jewel of the zero. operation here in syria.
one come to the government's side of aleppo the sees what you see on your way here we're just a few hundred meters away from the front line that. we're in. and the rebels are pushing into aleppo again. the rescue is now digging through the rubble looking for the body of a thirteen year old go. and. they.
were as a syrian still reposition overlooking the industrial quarter of that is sort of the battle is said to be theists isis fired back as we filmed shells speak on fooling around. we ran but the syrian batteries kept firing. life even did as order is still far from normal but at least they will be starving to death and the more. well space afford a former you can pass it syria what base campaign will be remembered for. but the
most significant came at the beginning in september twenty fifteen the syrian government forces that point really on the ropes i fish were at the gate of damascus russia coming in leveled the playing field and saved the day for the syrian government you have to remember that before that point the western countries and the gulf countries had been fending off we've assistance to be is land this fourth fifth. regardless of consequences or whether that actually help i feel if the west and powers work and saudi arabia but continuing to pour in assistance to the jihadi forces russia the intervention particularly with airstrikes turned
the tide. hitting back at a wave of accusations of turning into a president of the rich french leader a man on the crown has said that his latest tax reform is aimed at encouraging investment and promoting talent in the country however people we spoke to in paris don't buy that saying the reform will work against them at a show a day with explains how do you know when you're not just rich but your filthy wage . your fast cars and resources a definitely signs that eve more than a pretty penny to spend right. will not so much in france where the tories of the rich and famous no longer eligible for tax and that's causing quite a stir if you can. i think this is unfair but justice no longer exists in france
there isn't a justice system anymore this is the hunger for power of a prince who wants to rule our country how he wants some government is only for the rich and he doesn't care about the poor we don't have a middle class there are only poor people who work for the rich yes i am outraged and we the young people should protest against this much switching how france taxes wealth is government change that it wants to do you have the extremely wealthy including tens of thousands of millionaires who fled the country because of the country's old tax system and even though only a tiny fraction of french people pay the old tax money going to own m.p.'s admit they going to face a hard time explaining this. how could i explain this to six year olds who own an old apartment that they will be taxed more than young trader's driving
a ferrari so all the taxes raised under the old system. come sold out by the money that strong small spike people trying to move to but many people particularly pension is say they'll be hard to hit under the new system and they do you realize they claim that money going still when she's so neat for the rich and the super rich. ski see how this. week is are your thoughts on the day's stories by following us on facebook and twitter you can also find me that sneaky aeronauts me and join me again for the latest headlines in just over thirty minutes. capitalism requires capital which requires savings which requires a rate of interest that encourages people to say that rate of interest has to be
commensurate with the global war then they say america's risk reward profile in issuing bonds if i'm a wall street bond issue or and i issue too many bugs in the market can absorb i should watch the price of my bonds go down i know i just can't issue bonds of a goldman sachs every day billions and billions and that they never go down in price because the federal reserve is always going to print money to buy them that's not even remotely tied to capitalism in any stretch of the imagination that's a racket. there are some nazis in the tea it's not the mass of the steve though true but you know to say that our culture of atonement. oh remembrance of nuns nazi crimes is room that's true much it's the attitude of
some people in the. fifty's which by the way is no in the process of tearing into. economic development is all about really. but what do we know about the other. twenty million dollars last year more than one thousand times the average wal-mart . with all due respect i have to say i don't think that's right. people went from pretty simple financial lives. to the point now where people are.
just totally submerged in their financial accounts and they're all in debt and what exactly. would try to do. things were. wrong. in the central east of the united states it is within this city with a population of three hundred thousand that the university of kentucky can be found . it is barely nine in the morning david and brandon two fescue students are in the middle of a video game. as it will be for the first match of the season for the university's american football team the wildcats.
