tv World Apart With Oxana Boyko RT October 1, 2017 2:29pm-3:01pm EDT
national press like you are covering what's going on here and just see how people back in russia or in europe or anywhere in the world. are watching these shocking images and thinking what on earth is going on and spain has this government of mr a whole turn absolutely crazy have they gone back to the middle ages or to generals franco's dictatorship military that they should what on earth is going there in that place and why are they acting in this crazy man but why do you think europe is so silent and we haven't heard any real comment coming from differing european officials say and if such a crackdown to plait took place elsewhere it would probably cause an outcry in the e.u. but this is not happening at the moment why do you think so but i think european leaders are also shocked. and even probably didn't expect this or in this way but we have seen things and we've seen the belgium prime minister making statements
we've seen. calling the spanish premier overhaul. we we we saw the other day donald trump the president of the us also making public statements on this so yes there is widespread interest but we will have to wait and see i'm sure a european governments are now trying to decide what they do and what they can do what we obviously make a call to the international community to. take an active part in this we are asking for international sanctions in the european union specifically for sanctions for considering article seven which calls for the suspension of states which exert violence against their own citizens and we are also encouraging the international community to consider to consider international mediation to see if we can get a solution from the from. from somewhere else because we're not getting it from
madrid obviously all right thank you so much for sharing your time with us here live coming from the center of barcelona that was outfitted by ship barcelona said he counsel republican last leader and again i just want to mention that this was a very difficult and a very violent day for catalonia for the citizens of catalunya and for the city of barcelona now the referendum now and the last took place the polling stations have been closed and the counting of the votes has begun many thanks us our correspondent dina cochon of that many thanks some interesting words in that interview ok let's get some live pictures now this is the scene just outside one of the main polling stations in barcelona if you would why people are sort of stood around the people sitting as well they're awaiting the results of the referendum but they're also watching the public address there by the country's leader but on a rock or who has been busy thanking the efforts of the national police despite all
of these reports of physical altercations claims of violence being used. and as you can see a lot of people waiting to see the result that comes in of course we'll bring it straight to you but two very very different stories now coming one from catalonia and one from madrid. this was the with me. the most get a little. bit too much as well. but i. know both of
what politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and she. want to be. the two going to be prosperous like them before three of them or can people that i'm interested always in the waters of our. first sit. ok let's wrap up some of the stories from throughout the last week for you now major tech firms are cooperating with the u.s. or thirties by handing over information apparently related to russia meddling in the twenty sixteen presidential election in a statement twitter also took
a swipe at r.t. looks at the latest efforts to root out alleged russian trolls. the internet is now trying its hand at hunting down even the slightest sign of moscow lurking in the shadows facebook twitter and now google are all gearing up to testify in congress on pesky russian meddling next month. twitter has released a report with that name just made to fill headlines russian interference in two thousand and sixteen u.s. election bots and misinformation now it sounds spooky but the findings are more than a little vague twitter apparently found and shut down a grand total of two hundred one suspicious accounts that broke their spam rules and while russia is mentioned in the report those accounts aren't actually proven to have concrete links to moscow what was clearly laid out however was this channel spending on ads shockingly proving that r.t. uses social media and by as advertisements. facebook released similar findings earlier revealing four hundred seventy in authentic accounts then admitted most ads
run by those accounts didn't even reference the u.s. presidential election at all so the kremlin is so sneaky that it was able to rig an election without mentioning the actual election pretty impressive facebook also said russia spent one hundred thousand dollars on those ads and other words less than one percent of how much candidates spent campaigning on facebook. while stories of how moscow sway u.s. voters with a bunch of social media ads continue to dominate the mainstream media the most shocking social network revelation is all but ignored wiki leaks has posted an email conversation in which facebook's chief operating officer seemingly proposes helping hillary clinton's campaign head. i still want hillary rodham clinton to win badly i'm still here to help as i can i'm thrilled at the progress here louise making. looking forward to working with the first woman president of the united states. google is also accused of having close ties to the clinton camp
a leaked memo written by clinton's digital strategist surfaced online. i'm in it he talks about eric schmidt boss of google's parent company and the work that he's done for clinton i have been kept apprised of the work being done by eric schmidt's group and others working directly and indirectly with your team on the whole i am comfortable with where we stand and confident in our roadmap to launch day and beyond but if you're waiting for these special committees and investigations to be set up into whether facebook or google actually help the clinton camp don't hold your breath just in case but i think it's a witch i think that they don't care about what hillary was doing and they want to they're very biased against the pain so far they haven't showed me an ad that was a that was a pro trump ad that was paid for by the russian government 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 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 one of the key allegations against russia took a major blow this week with three u.s. states saying the department of homeland security provided them with false info of a moscow's possible actions the t.h.s. told twenty one states that systems have been hacked during the election but three states already say information was no they late in coming but also wrong and the agency should apologize. it seems news of alleged russian meddling won't go away it appears almost anyone risks being accused of ties to moscow including social new sign read the drudge report news website and even debates over the national american football league l m open decided to us new york as if they could tell the difference between real and made up accusations against russia which scandal was
said to be the result of russian trolls by a u.s. senator was it a an f l players not standing up for the pledge or for the flag was it b. confederate monuments or c. the california independence movement california and it's a you're right see because i don't know i really don't know do you believe that kid who is a russian agent is it alexander ovechkin matt drudge or tom cruise tom cruise no doubt us a b. and you're right which is used as a tool for russian propaganda according to this same us senator is it a fox news be read it or see snap chat or. reddit yeah you're right about that i would say b. and that's what yeah the same guy said that read it down right now do you buy this idea that rush is everywhere russian trolls are in fla anon do you buy that i think it's all over the internet so it has to be true the country prefers the quick
explanations without any facts. we discussed the recent allegations against russia hold water with brant budowsky columnist for the hill news website and media analyst lionel. 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 ads black lives matter how is that going to help donald trump all 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 take all the time you want the best evidence you have of anything that you have tended to accuse russia you know the senate intelligence committee democrats and republicans the f.b.i. every law enforcement agency every count of 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 want to buy an ad that is on the new. already how is the russian. story somehow worse deeper affecting people more than the other story i'm hearing ten thousand times on ten thousand other platforms. ok back to our top story let's show you some live pictures now from barcelona i believe this is in the central square this is just outside on the main polling stations there so the polls have now closed as you see large numbers of people hanging around because they want to know what the result is they've been watching t.v. earlier they were listening to the spanish prime minister mariano rajoy they must have been through gritted teeth they were sort of talking about what there was. praising the efforts of the national police who've actually inflicting quite a lot of violence today clashes with the voters in barcelona the national police
brought in to prevent the actual referendum taking place or taken away people who were being dropped as they tried to actually make their way into the polling stations people being dragged out of the polling stations. the national broadcast there saying that the police did a great job and that mariano rajoy said there's been no official referendum in catalonia a very different picture in the region itself with the voters waiting around to hear confirmation of the result. you. see you next. this.
is all about. yes i might. according to the c.a.e. it is home to the world's most powerful drug syndicate why you're growing marijuana tomatoes it's easy. there's a big get over it all grown people at the market a lot of the long term for your body wash the people out. of your. dillard to teach them. a. little. must and the government knows what they do and they do nothing. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself in taking your last wrong turn. your attitude up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm
sorry 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 more like it was again still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death this one quite different i speak to you now because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. germany has see the number of protests this week denouncing the policies of the
alternative to germany party now this follows last week's major breakthrough but it entered parliament for the first time. i was. i think the biggest rallies gathered outside the if these headquarters with protesters shouting at the party's leaders as they actually celebrated their successful election result their claims that the protesters were acting so aggressively they were afraid to leave the building i recent bundestag elections also made headlines as anglo-american despite coming out on top saw a plunge in her support christian democratic party registered its worst result since nine hundred forty nine means that hard times could lie ahead as artist daniel hawkins explains. to many i'm going to merkel is the embodiment of stability in the face of crisis mixing diplomacy with a firm hand and sound decision making well as for that skill this term has been
marred by a series of setbacks firstly she decided to open the doors to asylum seekers at the height of the refugee crisis almost a million flooded into germany in twenty fifteen alone while some more welcoming others started to worry the country just wouldn't be able to cope. a year off to mark a lot to open door policy germany saw a rise in modern crimes one of the most shocking hundreds of women alleging they were sexually assaulted in cologne new year's celebrations by men of north africa an hour of appearance. the events in cologne took their toll on merkel's popularity. the chancellor's
controversial refugee policy is also blamed at least partly for something much more sinister and dangerous a rise in is the most terrorism. poorly vetted or later radicalized migrants cross the border germany saw multiple terror attacks take place markel faced the biggest leadership crisis. for the first. or. burgers and for america or believe this really. going to hold with the going to be one of the all. finally the g twenty summit presented in. p.r. opportunity for chancellor merkel but while she advertised hamburg as a gateway to the world protest groups had other ideas welcome to hell and the
authorities failed to prevent the chaos. the city descended into riots torched cars and pitched street battles with the police much of the media held her accountable for the chaos and for even choosing that venue to start with she may still be queen of the polls but merkel may need a fourth term just the right some of the mess she created in the third. this week president trump said that the u.s. is fully prepared to explore military options against north korea if required in response pyongyang threatened to shoot down american bombers is the latest exchange in the war of words the now been going on for months. the year of strategic patience. with the north korean regime has noted states is
prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies our respective leader kim didn't own what it said the u.s. would be unhappy to witness north korea strategic power on its independence day and called for frequently sending big and small new packages they will be met with fire fury. like the world has never see. any threat to the united states george territories will be met with a massive military response the u.s. neglects the international community's will be on the korean peninsula. retaliate against attempts to impose sanctions. i'm pressure from washington with powerful counts and i think that the strongest ever hydrogen bomb might be tested in the pacific we are totally prepared for the second option not
a preferred option but if we take that option it will be devastating i can tell you that devastating for north korea that's called the military option. since the united states declared war on our country we will have every right to take countermeasures including the right to shoot down u.s. strategic bombers even when they are not inside our country's airspace the question of who won't be around much longer will be answered then. a specialist andre long explains what north korea is trying to achieve. for north korea to shoot down. american acknowledged outside north korea territory would be a unique that to pick a ration of war and we're trying a kind of ask elation which is no good for him but that's not what he wants
why does he want to do that and what he wants is all that and i feel asian obviously g.m. is an insurance policy against me seem change is the only credible insurance policy is a peace treaty a formal peace pact with the united states because his main threat is not from japan or china is from. united states but if you put more pressure on him the more that he would feel reaching change the more you would hasten this nuclear isolation program. and these conclusions again surprising support from the u.s. military block my assessment based intelligence everitt is that kim jong development of nuclear capability in his development of missile technology is primarily a show she did with regime survival that's not to say that they don't propose a threat to shove korea into others in the region but my judgment is that that is what has driven his. development over the past eighteen months. of the state
department apparently disagrees and describes the u.s. president as an effective communicator in the korean crisis i think the pick the president is an effective communicator i think people know exactly where he stands we have had a good deal of success in pushing forward with our diplomacy campaign that hasn't changed. and everyone is so confident of this diplomatic success the u.s. state of california is already working out the potential effects of a nuclear strike on the state an official report has just come to light that estimates a huge loss of life the destruction of infrastructure and damage of up to a trillion dollars officials in hawaii have also been preparing for a possible attack leaked details reveal that residents should get ready as they would for a tsunami or hurricane a twelve minute warning will be given for people to find shelter and survivors would be advised to stay indoors for seventy two hours to avoid exposure to
radiation political analysts the north running kerry all believes however that it's not north korea that's being dangerous in that you are we are in the most war in times since the second world war why i'm not sure it's north korea honored or i think for the first time ever it's america that some predictable and. only sort of conflagration of any sort of military engagement we are still hoping mode but it's getting less and less able. ok i think we're going to take a short break now are we yes we are back at the top of their. this then with the with me in a minute i can on the most get a little bit of the moon was one. of the most i knew but i. know both of
it was a problem but i guess what kind of sign of this yes or no but if you dump on a handwritten note she refused to go and it is. where they blew he won't get a sadistic good area to hunt for immigrants it's hit and miss we never really know for sure but this has been a active area. becky so i. said yeah i. know what when i started no i. escaped being when it was only about maintaining peace between states as an essentially symbolic value when you have militias when you have criminal groups.
this is a symbol is not enough you need robust force. it's taken these children's homes. now it threatens to take the future of. the volcano here could erupt again at any time. most people have a strong choice. live in poverty. which will in a kind. but some are following a different approach. to leagues it's. leaflets to leave. that point the hope for a that's a lot. of the
season in the. league level warhawks selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles they believe the new socks credits tell you that plenty gossip and tabloid lifestyles a little more news today. off the bat for telling you are not cool enough and let's not buy their product please. all the hawks that we along with all the walking slowly. here's what people have been saying about redacted in night with the senators full on awesome the only show i go out of my way to launch a lot of the really packs a punch at least yampa is the john oliver of party america is doing the same we are
apparently better than to fast. and see people you never heard of love redacted tonight was president of the world bank though hate. crime any serious letters sent us an email. with full make this manufacture consent to stick to public wells. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the famous. listen to the one. with no middle of the room sick. seems wrong why don't we all just don't call. me. yet to shape out just to come out to. engage with equals betrayal.
