senate committee hearing meddling funds the presidential election was not. the level of the morning and that's where we're heading first. to following those massive strikes against the spanish government that attracted over half a million people in catalonia now anti independence activists have gathered in barcelona this is all of course after last weekend's controversial referendum which saw violence break out across the region and it's been following events for us in barcelona. if you can see a couple hundred people. gathered here i was there. probably you could see any independent robbing banks they are quite loud and really are symbolic of passing seemingly right here and know that if you can see the street here it was people are
5:02 am
quite fascinated about keeping spain in scouts have been speaking out against the independence they've been talking about how they want the rule of law to prevail how there. was a way that we've been conducting was arrested in your answer the crackdown of course that of course we criticized on the day of the referendum one of the very first. case here no just the ones who are coming i think one thing which talks about the embassy was the site where you're sitting i think what they should do is respect the lure in the constitution as all of europe and the european union have osteo the only thing we are asking is that they have by the constitution and the law which is what will defend the catamaran people. i think is civilized it will not give us anything respond if citizens festival we want a united spain this independent side air space to my eyes is just
5:03 am
a robust so far we do know that the council on parliament said they would hold a session on potential independence process as soon as this monday so certainly this critical situation seems likely to continue given of this stance of the cats long leadership to continue to pursue the results of the referendum where ninety percent of the electorate did vote to leave spain how exactly this is going to unravel remains to be seen could you want also said that he does want some mediation to be involved between barcelona and madrid and whether or not that happens and what kind of mediation is going to be and whether or not is actually going to bear fruit is what we're going to be watching now. earlier the general strike sort of a seven hundred thousand people to. as people weigh flag since chanted pro independence slogans along those packed streets. so catalonia now has several options regarding its future one could be opening dialogue with the you and the spanish authorities to try to mediate some way forward in this crisis that's
5:04 am
been said by the trades attempts to disrupt the referendum but thus far the council on president says spain hasn't responded positively to any idea of talks among these number would we have never received any positive response from the state to any of the proposals of mediation that we have on the table at the moment yes a lot of spain's prime minister is so far rejected negotiations once again stressing that madrid sees the vote is illegal meantime overnight protests in the capital saw crowds calling for national unity and the central government not to enter talks with catalonia was with was a couple of gourami's really interesting in these objectives about four hours is
5:05 am
very important. international community recognize what is happening here in the following year and also they are and we are making calls here nor those talks receive some international support in the in the process of negotiating with. with us by the government now with the first option currently doubtful then catalonians may look for other options to say let's talk about what they could be they could include its regional government going ahead with declaring independence option two and a parliamentary session confirmed indeed that could happen as early as next monday . out of the ninety eight hour an extraordinary meeting will take place next monday ninth told her it's a debate to make an imagination of the results of the referendum in other words to declare the independence of catalonia couple who was once an independent go to one that you see if you stop watching not only have you finished the course of portugal
5:06 am
where you so don't see but that it has to be concerned about how catalonia and portugal shooting at the lunch hour with those who live many other parts of you watching with interest as to what is up to you. but i think we have to look at a couple of you know its own merits given all that's happening now to look it is early start think every place is different but it looks a couple only is on that we do independents and it will certainly be encouraging for many other schools you know. and then there's option three maybe perhaps the worst case scenario for catalonia that would be madrid taking back power over the regional government there under article one five five the spanish constitution is possible the central government could indeed suspend the north eastern regions autonomy but it seemed there was a last resort but the spanish justice minister has confirmed that spain could suspend kathlyn autonomy if catalonia declared its independence next week it's all really coming to a head now we spoke to lot of an international affairs consultant who told display
5:07 am
needs to tread carefully. in the central government they would search in step and then they would then they really exclude themselves and membership or not if the e.u. would accept such as you do ration that is the and for the new. as a as an international organization we can never accept that the e.u. member state uses the army against his own people we should also not forget that the reason and the circumstances that straight stay in the game and member was among other things too and in the day to shoot such a scenario would be a catastrophe to strain to call it alone you know obviously and for the european union absolutely. king of saudi arabia has landed in moscow on an historic trip it's the first time the kingdom's sitting monika's made an official visit head to russia and the moves seen by many as an unexpected shift in riyadh
5:08 am
foreign policy king solomon will meet with the russian president vladimir putin with huge oil deals at stake for trade good report. deals with the biggest and the richest gulf monarchies always mean big numbers on paychecks and king solomon of saudi arabia is in moscow to do just that for these contract signatures but it is no secret that when it comes to international politics russia and saudi arabia aren't exactly friends but that only adds spice to the story because when it comes to the economic partnership high ranking officials on both sides have been teasing the journalists with these big numbers multibillion dollar contracts are expected to be announced including three billion dollars worth of arms purchases by saudi arabia plus one billion dollars of extra cash for the joint and or g. fund to riyadh is also going to invest in gas production in russia moscow is going
5:09 am
to build plants in saudi arabia and so on so is this the case of economic interests first politics second we'll see because i'm not sure that the leaders will be able to dodge that many issues where moscow and riyadh don't see eye to eye in international politics another issue that we have to watch out for when it comes to the context is of course the very close ties between saudi arabia and the u.s. remember donald trump chose saudi arabia as the first destination for his first foreign trip the president of russia vladimir putin was asked about all that last night but let's face it this major is always going to be the united states when it comes to political interests he said always will remain is there anything in the world that is so absolutely constant. well king solomon's visit to russia had
5:10 am
a bit of a dodgy start because the golden clad escalator that he carries around the world suddenly stopped when the monarch was disembarking his plane but there was compensation for that moscow understandably once to make the king as welcome as possible in russia he could see welcome posters on his way to central moscow and of course he's going to enjoy the best view of the crowd from his words cause and sweet and i'll tell you what the saudi delegation didn't just book several suites at the ritz carlton not even the entire hotel but a whole cluster of moscow's most lavish hotels in the heart of the russian capital so there's a bit of a saudi kingdom there right now the leaders of the world's two largest oil producers are going to meet behind the kremlin walls later in the afternoon we'll be showing you how it's happening and we'll give you all the latest updates from
5:11 am
there. indeed we know next reporting this morning the u.s. senate intelligence committee saying that voting in the twenty sixteen presidential election was not affected by alleged russian meddling. we can certify. that no vote totals were affected but the pallies record the outcome of the election based upon the commode. the they did not in any way shape or form that we've been able to find an alter that from there we heard members of the senate intelligence committee say that they believe that russia was currently in the process of trying to create chaos in the us elections and they talked about social media the vice chairman of the committee who is mark webber he went on to say that social media platforms were not taking the threat of alleged russian meddling seriously enough facebook recently turned over three thousand ads that they say were russia linked over one hundred thousand dollars worth of advertisements that
5:12 am
were bought between the years of two thousand and fifteen and twenty seventeen the social media giant revealed that most of the views that these ads received were accumulated after the election took place now senator warner went on to say that the american users of ads should be informed about whether or not ads are purchased by what he called foreign entities now he didn't define what a foreign entity is or how it would be determined if someone who purchased an ad was a foreign entity or not he just felt that ad should be labeled from there we went on to hear about how facebook has talked about the contents of these ads in the comments made to the press we heard it hinted that it's pretty clear that these ads weren't exactly linked to any particular candidate let's take a listen there's no way that you can look at that and say that that was to help the right side of the ideological shore. and. not the left or vice versa or they were indiscriminate it seems that the overall theme of the
5:13 am
russian. involvement in the u.s. looks create chaos at every level. and i would tell you the fact that we're sitting here nine months later investigating that in pretty strong success at this point when we heard the members of congress speaking to the press they seemed to insinuate or suggest or maybe even believe that the reason that their investigation is taking so long is because of the alleged success of the russian medlars and that they've done it so well that it's just very very hard to find the evidence they didn't seem to acknowledge the possibility that maybe the evidence they're so desperately looking for just isn't there and well as we saw the senate is focused on russia's alleged use of social media platforms as a tool to influence voters they voted three social network joints to work with the senate to try to help determine whether or not these ads were generated by the foreign entities. we think it's important. that the three
5:14 am
companies that we've invited google twitter and facebook. will appear in a public hearing so that americans can begin to hear both about how we're going to protect i would argue three areas one making sure that if you see an ad that appears on a social media site and americans can know where the source of that ad was generated by foreign entities. we talked to former u.s. intelligence officer scott recode about all this he told us the social media giants could be easily manipulated. what's interesting to hear here is out of the hundred thousands of dot one hundred thousand only dollars that was spent supposedly by the russians very few views were actually made of that those posts well that being said that's because you can easily control who sees these these posts using the hadrian algorithm and other algorithms that limit these the exposure of these pows vice
5:15 am
versa when the democratic party was posting things those posts were getting a widespread view because of their collusion with google and facebook so this is really a comical joke to me and it's and it really proves the red scare of russia can survive here even in the year two thousand and seventeen mean time one of those social media giants google has removed from its advertising package in the u.s. without any notice deputy editor in chief carol kind of edge for lewis land the move is absolutely unacceptable this speaks to the unprecedented political pressure increasingly applied to all our t. partners and relationships in a concerted effort to push our channel out of the u.s. market entirely and by any means possible. one of the clock back a bit but same kind of thing with anti russian hysteria now seemingly reaching a climax of sorts the roots of it could go back to the nineteen seventies in
5:16 am
america according to newly declassified u.s. intelligence documents saying that the soviet union then was trying to influence small groups of people with telepathy no less and if this. little. pearl. little. little. little. little. but they don't worry about it. too so if you steal it all the tension stress. little you'll like because it's like
5:17 am
a moving target. little. well but the real world here and now a good coach is a still proving a sticking point for some countries to talk about that in the rest of the day's news after the break. that's.
5:18 am
what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to express an injury. or someone want to be. that you'd like to be that's what before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the water. again the f.b.i. is being sued by victim of an islamic state inspired attack in twenty fifty eight other controversial cartoons drawing contest in texas this lawsuit alleges that the bureau may have been complicit in the terrorist incident and not acting upon early
5:19 am
warning signs ago france has sent the other reports. the f.b.i. is under fire accused of encouraging a terror attack the accusation comes from a security guard who is taking his case to court bruce joiner was wounded in two thousand and fifteen in an iceland speired terrorist attack targeting the draw mohammad contest in garland texas. both of them had assault rifles came around the back of a car and started shooting. now garland could have been a massive tragedy but mr joyner along with other guards and the police managed to stop the terrorists now he wants to get to the bottom of this quite shocking
5:20 am
revelation bruce has been a loyal law enforcement officer for most of his life and only seeks the food truth as the f.b.i.'s role in his near death all made that the two thousand and fifteen we did not understand why our own government would not tell us even privately what really happened that day so what does he bases accusations on well for starters the f.b.i. allegedly helped the terrorists oh pain weapons by lifting a restriction during a background check it's also believed the agent even texted the terrorists inciting them well to have a good time. and finally the f.b.i. is accuse the following the terrorists to the scene of the attack not up rehan them but only to drive away and let them get on with it i don't like to think that they let it occur but it is shocking to me that an undercover agent sees fellows jumping out of a car and he drives on. according to research by an american university
5:21 am
a shocking fifty eight percent of people charged with links to eisele had contact with either an undercover u.s. agent or informant helping the terrorists do well who knows what it's very troubling to know that not only was the f.b.i. aware of this attack but likely perhaps complicit in carrying it out and even enticing the two terrorists to carry out the attack in garland texas some of the facts are indicating that they had an undercover agent that was trying to get in with isis if the attack had been carried out successfully and people died that was likely that this undercover agent and his superiors his supervisors in the f.b.i. felt that this would prompt him up to high ranks within isis he didn't have a legal duty to prevent it but it certainly is negligence at the very least remember james comey the former f.b.i. chief while he didn't mention any of this here in the twenty fifteen gharlane press briefing and when asked whether counterterrorism investigators are looking for
5:22 am
a needle in a haystack he said the whole country is a haystack and the needles are invisible apparently there was at least one needle that was visible that he chose not to mention your presence jago r.t. . a polish member of the european parliament launched a scathing attack on the e.u. over its migrant policies during a debate he used the bloc of other logically bulldozing member states and repeating mistakes. graphic policy is to suckle too complex a problem to be imposed by the you appear political and ideological bulldozer that has to be a consensus of all member states otherwise we will be back in the situation where the big guys do what they want they could get away with that has to be. the e.u.'s mandatory quota scheme has been the focus of much criticism each member
5:23 am
state was required to take in a specific number of asylum seekers after the migrant crisis all began back in twenty fifteen but the quotas were never fully accepted by everyone in the union the so-called redistribution system was decided by a majority vote but the sudden influx of migrants led to several countries appealing against the quotas they had given poland hungary were the most critical refusing to take in fact in any refugees the process also proved a challenge even for the e.u.'s biggest wealthiest countries like france and germany and he spoke to the hunger in for a minister for his take on the blocs common migration policy. it's obvious that the migratory policy of european union was a failure so far you know the obligatory photo system is a total bad in st. at least central europeans were honest about that but you know those western european friends of ours will praise this decision very allowed lee and best us very loudly have completely deployed to up to up to twenty five percent so basically no one complied with the decision of the of the european commission
5:24 am
you know its medical people procedure is a matter of political correctness instead of being honest and straight to the problems this is actually against the european the regulations and you broke your own laws because that decision takes away the right from the member states to make their decisions on their own in daylight and thirty to rebuild their country and when they do not like the third group there. in germany two suspected members from the infamous nazi death squad have been identified by jewish human rights organization one of the directors for the rights group claims the men are responsible for some of the nazi units was to try cities during world war two the nazi task force took an active role in mass killings among them was the massacre of over thirty three thousand jews in just two days that happened in a place called back in ukraine shortly after the war ended twenty four the death squads leaders were charged for crimes against humanity would have warning in a find some of the pictures coming up here distressing.
5:25 am
launching yet i think it's looking good it's. a chimp. it isn't a show that's. just. we spoke to human rights activist a from zero who believe criminals should still be prosecuted regardless of their age. about ten years ago the german judicial authorities change their prosecution policy visa v. nazi war criminals now any person who served in a nazi death camp a death camp is a concentration camp with the apparatus for mass annihilation which is either gas
5:26 am
chambers or gas fans well served in the eyes at scroope and can be almost automatically convicted. for service based on service alone. for example first of all one of the people denies participating in in any atrocities he says that he was a mechanic but that's irrelevant in other words he was a mechanic working on cars or trucks that took the shoot is to the pits to kill the jews so there's no question he's an accessory to murder. punishment for excessively to murder is as i said between five and fifteen years in prison and obviously when you give a person who's ninety four a five year sentence that's basically a life sentence don't be fooled into seeing frail old people think of people who in the flower of their youth with the height of their physical power they spent all
5:27 am
their energy mass murdering innocent men women and children. most a sobering thought to leave you on so far this half hour that's the round up of this news bulletin from r.t. thanks for watching jackie voters here and thirty minutes with more stay with us on social media too but for me your company will look at the. mall make this manufactured consent to public wealth. when the ruling

classes to protect themselves. in the frame and. lift certainly don't want. to ignore middle of the room six. million more you leave. the world. about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself and taken your last bang turn. it 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. but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was
5:29 am
a cave still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like. it's one does not leave the funeral the same as one enters mind gets consumed with this one different. speech because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. i am asked geyser this is the kaiser a parliament denver well we buzz about stacy back in denver at the science and children's art museum now mark what's the name of the flies museum of nature and science museum of nature and science right here in denver a call.
