is behind such shook such. was. was going to. spain's prime minister asked the senate to dismiss catalonia as meynell starches and once new regional elections as soon as possible. a european think tank publishes a list of thousands of r.t.s. guests including president trump calling them useful idiots and a controversial report on this china's policies. and he would rise organizations warn the deaths could rise in greek refugee camps this winter after cold weather and the lack of medical help kills a five year old. you're
watching the latest headlines here tell us he international thank you for joining us. and we start in spain where madrid has asked the senate's to remove key figures in the capital on government and hand their responsibilities to government ministers the measures were announced by prime minister mariano to haul you off to article one five five of the constitution was triggered. no applying all sickle one five five because no government a tool in a democratic country can accept that the law will be ignored or violated or changed and this is all happened under false criteria and they impose that criteria on everybody else. well for more on this development let's cross live now to auntie's medina caution about here's in barcelona behind the medina so what measures does madrid want against council on us government.
while we have just heard the address made by the spanish prime minister ahmed and that out to the nation and it was indeed a very anticipated speech given the current constitutional crisis that we see in the country and then the regional council on the now mud treat and nouns that it is invoking article one fifty five for the first time in the country's history now article one fifty five is only two short paragraphs of nineteen seventy eight constitution of spain and they might be applied if a regional government does not comply with the obligations of the constitution now this move can only be taken if the majority of the spanish senate approve and again it is a very unprecedented move yes this matter has never been used by the government and the country's history now prime minister i might add that i also said that maj reed
is not a revolting council on ian's autonomy but. removing a local government that allowed to this crisis. you have. this measure we going to implement has a lot to do with the goal of holding an election in catalonia the region will have to hold an election within six months the mind tension is to hold it as soon as we recover but i mean the. prime minister also called for snap elections to be held within the next. six months now under the a one fifty five article top story the issue will be dissolved and spanish government ministers will temporary their functions rast of council and government will keep acting but under. a ruling now all these measures that i've just mentioned suit first be approved by the majority of the spanish senate now of course we expect to hear some reaction coming from
this region from council on from the local governments now we've already heard from a representative of the council on party in the spanish senate which has already said that the speech made by the prime minister violates democracy violates democracy especially to the people now here and the heart of a bar salon on plaza consolo yes we expect to see mass protests to take place within the next couple of hours of course we expect to hear from the catalan leader and we will bring you the latest from barcelona. here we'll be watching for that medina question about in barcelona thank you very much. now i think tank called european values has released a damning report about this channel and criticized more than two thousand people pay it disgusts the institute which gets funding from the u.s. and other western governments brown is the guest useful idiots aunties and i say
check in and discuss the report with my colleague. it's a bit of a surprise for you b r t bashing continues now in this particular report the issues that artie's guests are having really a good get themselves this is a report by think tank based in the czech republic called european values report is called the kremlin's platform for useful idiots in the west an overview of ortiz editorial strategy and evidence of impact now what this report does. does is need we compile a list of basically all of our t's guests because it features thousands of people and it's not just you know a round of list not only are there seven categories in this report dividing our guests into us politicians and political figures british politicians european and other international politicians writers journalists academics and so on so seven categories and if that wasn't enough it also indicates the number of times each
guest appeared on r t and links to some of the most relevant episodes it's clear that this particular think tank really worked hard at watching r t here in the u.k. in the states and all around the world he doesn't really mince words when it comes to our team gets not only is the report dubbed useful idiots but it also calls the guests naive and oblivious to our t.'s intentions so certainly something that is not being too nice to people who have chosen to come and express their opinion on our network and here is why the report decided to really look into all this the purpose of this list is to identify individuals who either an awareness of political agenda or indeed explicit support of it and then stand names in credibility. and proxy agents of the kremlin is pretty clear we need to start. hello my name is neil and. what. are we
to be ashamed about when the two things what have i done what have you done what have we done wrong well apart from looking at all of our guests of course this wouldn't be a proper think tank report if we didn't actually try to get our t. itself it does say that the goal is to look at the history agenda of evidence of impacts of the channel that they describe as pushing program one agenda or under the guise of free speech and alternative journalism now not only does this report claim to be debunking certain what is. calls myths about the channel such as being a reliable news source saying that it's not harmful and also goes into key points such as saying that archie's whole goal is to denigrate the west and our tea is rooted in the denial of truth we can say that some of the sponsors behind this piece is mostly private donors but as well as open society which is obviously a george soros foundation the european parliament the u.s. embassy in the czech republic and we do know that the author has been doing some
work with the atlantic council which of course is known for certain anti russia hype so really no surprises there we'll have to wait and see what kind of reactions we see from all of those thousands of people who have been coming onto our channel to express their views. well we asked the host of our he's going underground show what he thought about his guest being called a useful idiots amazing that reports like this are actually presumably being read by politicians and hopefully your guests will continue to appear but as regards guests the guests that they mentioned in the delineate in this report i mean does she really think and the politicians here and in the united states of lonely are going to think that a young is verified and for first minister scott alexander the former mayor of london they're just idiots they useful idiots of course then lot and this is incredibly insulting i mean there is no logical consistency here and at the moment
we're joking about it a little but of course there is a serious side the british foreign secretary did this week of democratically accountable politicians in britain that he should decide which networks are democratically elected politicians should be allowed should be appearing on that front president. apparently is doing its job according to the regulator here in britain but not according to politicians the clearly do not want certain views being expressed and given the oxygen of publicity to the british public and here are some other names you might be surprised to see on the useful idiots list senator john mccain a vocal critic of russia is grouped among politicians who have been on r.t. from director rob reiner makes an appearance he's actually now part of an organization called the committee to investigate russia all other politicians on the list include former presidential candidate bernie sanders as well as the current president donald trump even former first lady michelle obama gets
a mention. well the reporter katie states that all these people appeared on a show called politicking with larry david the problem is the famous american comedian has never had a show on r.t. politicking has always been hosted by veteran journalist larry king and that wasn't the only mistake either think science says it took guests names from show descriptions of our website which apparently led to more confusion take boris johnson for instance it claims he was on artie's news thing comedy show that this was his appearance so it's always someone with their finger on the right sort of international affairs it's foreign secretary boris johnson boris welcome. all we go and get a chance to fight the spanish before america and russia kill us so. these two. proportions what i saw has
a sense of history repeating itself seventy years ago so the start of america's so-called anti say butyl county russian which aren't. chairman j. parnell thomas of new jersey all funds an inquiry into possible communist penetration of a hollywood film industry the committee is seeking to determine if red party members have reached the screen with the first republican.
borrows the symbol the leader on the cover of the jackal. which is always phone to the throat of anyone who dares to expose individual coming to some to get off at the validity of our look in depth it's a different and higher back and not hearing from a guy what a lot of our partners are paying for three t.v. man in europe plotting what to do and see. if a person defend the activities of communist nations well consistently attacking the domestic and foreign policy of the united states she may be
a problem and i will say nothing and yet you are now carrying out the sirens for the ambitions of that. putin i think. how. a bloodless coup engineered by russia with past the traitorous indifference of the republican party and donald john trump and the military apparatus of this country is about to be handed over to stump for beholden to sky russian it's still. about wooing use after the show break.
this is i believe the worst crisis in modern american history is the crisis of unfettered capitalism undermining the entire population of the country and we've seen the arab spring we've seen other hot spots in the world and ice and i feel the heat building. welcome back accountings underway in the czech republic where
a general election won't assignats the country's next prime minister ahead of the vote opinion polls show that the anti establishment i am no movement could become the longest party in the parliament slow a train by its head a euro skeptic billionaire and the country's former finance and deputy prime minister had been gaining popularity. the group system we've had for so long is what i call a system so yes we are in and this is the movement. there is no place for migrants in europe. i don't want to be in the eurozone i don't want the country to be a. greek banks. let's face it they're not impaired by the e.u.
they're forming this economy governance and the euro zone is so weak. that some of our political approach is just the real world. well across the new year a skeptic parties have been gaining support in france marine le pen the leader of the national front party was the main rival to elected president emmanuel mccraw when in germany the a.f. dean and i and to parliament for the first time but it became the third largest party in the bundestag while the freedom party in austria also came third in the elections there were former checco foreign ministers settles for water thinks the mood is right for us skepticism in the e.u. . in europe are out of phase. if it's a euro skeptic force it's going to seem so far leave germany of course in
austria this is a very massive victory of the euro skeptic forces and maybe in the czech republic mr bucket and his movement under law belongs to the. two d. group of party is who are against it because. within the e.u. or or or who. does the movement which some of the very strong send you look be in position. iran's reiterated its complying with the nuclear deal the donald trump's threatening to scrap earlier russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov weighed in he stressed international security would be threatened if the u.s. end of the agreement and the north korean crisis could worsen. but you didn't stop it is clear that the failure of the g c p a way around deal due to one of the five
plus one members especially one of its most active members essentially the leader of the group would be an alarming signal to the architecture of international security including the settlement of the nuclear issue on the korean peninsula if you want to negotiate with kim jong un and your goal is to avoid war and try to be able to have a diplomatic resolution the worst thing you can do is first threaten to destroy his country and the united nations and secondly screw around with the deal that has already been made because the message is don't make a deal with the united states they won't keep their word well last week the u.s. president announced he wouldn't decertify the deal that means congress now has sixty days to decide whether it wants to reimpose sanctions upon iran or agree new legislation relating to the court donald trump said he wants his country out of the nuclear agreement even though it's wind it knowledge iran has not violated the terms we agreed on the fact that iran is in technical compliance i'll be
here to deal with the nuclear deal the agreement is the living they are in technical compliance technical was all violations of the nuclear range i'm all for agreements but that was a bad one they have not lived up to the spirit of their agreement they are not living up to the spirit of their agreement. well they are on deal was hammered out back in twenty fifteen by the so-called p five plus one group consisting of russia the united states china france germany and iran has followed nine years of intense talks and was hailed as a major breakthrough and the former head of the u.n. nuclear watchdog spoke exclusively to r.t. and he told us it's important to preserve the deal. the settlement and deal about the iran was a great achievement and it was achievement in israeli or by the p five in the security council and we have seen that before in the question of the syrian chemical weapons there was also a settlement and there is also now some sort of agreement on syrian peaceful car
outcome of syria between the p five so it's very important to preserve this these these precedents of agreement really between the p five and the security council and if that were to be damaged in the iranian gaze that would be very serious i think for the future authority of the security council. now human rights activists and n.g.o.s are urging the greek or surratt is to improve conditions at their refugee camps as winter approaches there's great concern asylum seekers are not equipped to cope with freezing temperatures well last week a five year old girl died from the cold and a lack of medical support at the morea refugee camp on the island of last boss just hours before her death her parents were reportedly refused extra blankets well like other refugee camps in greece morea is notorious for its conditions more than fifteen hundred people including children and pregnant women are living there many
without any source of heating well in winter temperatures can drop below freezing and as a result dozens of refugees have died in the last few years well being used pledged to give more than a billion euros to greece by twenty twenty to help it cope with the migrant crisis more than a million refugees have reached the country a main entry point into europe since twenty fifteen but as the influx threatens to overstretch greek resources the e.u.'s response has been questioned. economic could be a challenge to governments with things we simply can't cope with the influx and they haven't got the administrative resources talking nice proper relief for refugees or build proper camps the official a current of the you has a hole have not been signed off by the court awarded to the only county building for the last twenty three years we know that the e.u.
is very little idea about how its money is spent and that's always been true this be true before the market crisis and it's through ny during the migrant crisis and the e.u. doesn't know how to manage its money. and you know a lot of the money goes into the bloated bureaucracy and the governments of greece and italy i'm afraid i'm not renowned for how can i put it it minnesota deficiency or credibility. rights groups are up in arms after police penned a deal to deploy drones in the skies above los angeles the unmanned aircraft are bound to provoke a strong reaction from the public after years of high profile publicity on the silver screen. and surveillance. solar cells retired from.
washington to take. on processes have already come out to chill their opposition to the mayors outside the l.a. police department. i was i was i don't many residents fear the drawings will give all scientists too much surveillance power the president of the police union as sure as the public the new technology will protect both officers and citizens the department promises the l.a.p.d. as drones also went beyond. what all sources insist on nice want special law enforcement officers will be allowed to use the drones and exclusively in high risk situations or specified operations that technology can be used in rescue operations or when looking for suspects however i made can from the stop l.a.p.d. spying coalition questions the benefits time what we have seen about eighty percent
of the time over the last fifty years that swat has been used for low level drug offenses or no knock warrant entries and basically we've seen people's homes being destroyed lives being destroyed children as young as three month old being killed smoke bombs in a lot of things ever of course surveillance surveillance remains a huge issue i mean the los angeles police department is besides being one of the most militarized police department has a massive massive architecture of human and electronic intelligence gathering so the drones fit into the must much larger apparatus and i think when we when we're looking at technology when we're looking at the uses of technology we have to really take a pause and see that is this technology going to be enhancing the human condition is this for the benefit of health and well being of the human condition or of this technology is going to be used to terrorize to to stu stock to trades to monitor and negatively impact. well for more on these and plenty of other stories go to our web site. otherwise i'll be back with the latest headlines at the top of the hour.

as predicted by einstein scientists have confounded critics of last year's observations to reveal the gravitational waves exist gravity being the weakest of physics four fundamental forces and yet the one that means we go around the sun along with others the lie go or laser interferometer gravitational wave observatory detected the merging of two stars to cause waves about present in the universe and ordeal was released to broadcast as all of the so-called sound of neutron stars merging sound of that took hundreds of millions of years to reach us through space and which signify the creation of perhaps the gold in your local jewelry shop. one of the reasons we can hear that splash is that after soviet scientists worked on the subject and one thousand in the usa began gravity wave research funded by the u.s. military we don't of course know whether research into using gravity wave weapons by the pentagon is being carried out right now but we do know that research here in britain is not.
