2:02 am
article one fifty five by madrid or whether indeed it is a declaration of independence here in catalonia the catalan parliament and now discussing the possibility of making that declaration is only. because of the citizens' polls he is not going to allow spain to be school down we will not allow you the border a number of the members of the polish left to change but decide that they would not take part in that vote they have parties that are generally in favor of unity with spain. money upfront fees by years when this album about jewish people. you certainly in an area of people who are pro independence because when not vote was released that catalan parliament had declared an independent republic of catalonia the crowd would soon be crazy

2:04 am
our civic duty and dignity as we have always done and always will without any doubt yes the castle and parliament have said that that is what they voting for but there are many of the steps to take including the fact that we saw the reaction here then article one five five this is that the article that spanish senate is in madrid were voting on only whether they would take away the regional autonomy from catalonia. for a while another request that the measures regarding implementation of article i want to fight finance which were proposed to the senate are approved in article one five five part of the spanish constitution has never being enacted it's been described by many people as a nuclear option and that's because essentially what it does is removes regional autonomy then we decided to sack the president vice president and all the high ranking officials at the council on government he's called to snap elections for december twenty first and he's also stopped the chiefs of police over the catalan
2:05 am
police force with the was. one of the things that really resonates from this entire situation the spin weeks of weeks if uncertainty about the future of catalog is the fact that today outside the parliament they were true independent support just as well as there was for unity and want to remain in spain and they will stay out of the side by side with the capital and we will see a team that will decide to. fight this in decision with we discussed the crisis with a political commentator and before my cattle an m.p. both of whom have very differing views. or they are trying to do is to our

2:07 am
these movements and in this terrible time where he did not the question of how do you decide which crimes democracy and right now the story but this is not a question of companies and what you have in madrid this is a question of democracy and you should listen what people have got on people. who they won for for the future anybody in the international sphere is going to give a recognition to these a state right now the spanish government is walking to restore their constitution or their in their region and we have to broaden it to protect the heart of the card balance they want to keep their rights they want to keep it remain a spanish this is very sad really in that you are just saying that you want to save fifty percent of the. in society you should care about one hundred percent of
2:08 am
problems was i did it i'm not going violence on. the spanish government's been given overwhelming support from european institutions with nato and the un also one side and most member states along with the us australia and several latin american countries old cold for spanish unity however though there are those who said they would never at any point recognize an independent catalonia for example the belgium sweden and finland cold to a dialogue between barcelona and madrid russia stress the catalan crisis is a completely internal matter of scotland back to the independent schools saying cattle land should be free to determine their own future and senior fellow at john hopkins university federica bindy fears catalonians ont looking at the wider picture. the moon is deeply divided on the part of a separatist and there is also a source to all of. i would use that word did you know me even if it's not
2:09 am
a good word. they are in the school that the most shocking moment i don't think they're seeing hear me what is going to have been the you know the way they wear the single member states i would suspect if the come out they were also very clear that they only with nice spain it's already over one hundred and surprises me out of. the stock market is going down the so i don't really see how that kind of the standard that alone they're not going to have that freedom and the future of their dreams you know meanwhile a small region in the peyronie's mountains the value says of catalonia breaks away from spain it will break away from catalonia the trouble to be area and spoke to locals who don't share the regions for independence. one on the budget and this one they are on valley is a unique territory within catalonia it is self governing has its own institutions
2:10 am
its own language and its own history and culture only nineteen percent of those who voted in the referendum in favor of catalan independence that i will show that each other our right to self-determination was unanimously approved by the cattle and parliament and by the spanish state we could become a part of france or china tomorrow for instance if we chose to do so but we won't do it we want to remain a part of catalonia and spain. people are really afraid especially for the economy the economy of their ron paul is a very free charo because it is entirely dependent on tourism therefore and we can see it makes people really free. so a new round of pro unity rallies are expected throughout this day in barcelona here on the channel we'll be giving you. yes.
2:11 am
it is. out of the blue move to be clear it doesn't affect. what you can still follow as usual . a story worth the plot thickens and develops almost weekly r.t. has received notification from twitter it began positively we believe in freedom of expression and in speaking truth to power it ended ironically with the news that all of the accounts on our brand from advertising any content on the social media platform twitter has made policy decision to or board advertising from all accounts owned by russia today and sputnik according to twitter r.t. on behalf of the russian government attempted to interfere in u.s. elections as claimed by the us intelligence report back in january twenty seventh
2:12 am
seen no clear accusations of wrongdoing misconduct or breach of policy now this turn of events is almost comical given that last year twitter offered to deliver an unbiased point of view of the us elections through an exclusive ad campaign aimed to promote artie's election coverage and bring it to a wider american audience ortiz released some details of the election collaboration offer to provide a clearer picture now this special offer included many features from customize the modes you hashtags to analytics and research solutions even a dedicated team of twitter experts to help with media strategy now this had the specific aim of having a bigger reach to american voters and viewers why would twitter have offered this to a kremlin propaganda tool seeking to control the election after the negotiations r.t. didn't take up the offer because of the hefty price tag it went over all social
2:13 am
media budgets what happened over the last year and a half how has already gone from trusted media partner to being on par with mysterious russian bots and trolls here are the facts r t never violated any rules while advertising on twitter r.t. has never dealt with and will never deal with bots or any other compromise tools on any. media platform r t has never spread any sort of deliberate misinformation if this had not been the case r t would have been banned by any social media platform in question as all of them have strict rules for policy violations however twitter included this channel in their report russian interference in the twenty sixth elections it even went as far as releasing confidential information on spending on the platform a marketing strategy used by most international news outlets by the way in this day and age but again no proof of real misconduct the unprecedented actions of twitter
2:14 am
might end up backfiring for all media outlets as artie's editor in chief has warned honestly i didn't believe that twitter was controlled by american security services it looked like a conspiracy theory to me but twitter has just confessed it's a pity especially because american news outlets operating in russia will now feel the tenderness of russian tit for tat measures in the twitter officials will testify before congress on russian election meddling no doubt auti will be given a mention and while we're happy we've played by twitter's rules can twitter say they've avoided by the very principles of free expression they say they believe in well since two it has already disclosed confidential data about the ad contract with go ahead and get all out of the open in twenty sixty in the social media giant made a special us election offer to r t with quite a hefty price tag it would have cost about a would have cost us one point five million dollars over four months but with
2:15 am
a few more bolt on options we would have ended up spending three point three million dollars and what do you get for that kind of money well for one thing a customized emoji. i would have sent this child back some eight hundred thousand dollars so oxys management decided to decline twitter's offer. and we discussed the twitter advertisement bond with legal and media analyst lionel you told us is just an attempt to distract from an inconvenient narratives in u.s. politics this is a deliberate move to get everybody off of what's happening right now to the hillary clinton f.b.i. investigation everybody's favorite now let me get this straight r.t.d. buys an ad or ads ok like the world does what did these ads do did they survive the election did they cause or were they evidence of or in d.c. of colucci and what pray tell did these ads are compilation they made
2:16 am
americans think and maybe caused curiosity dissension perhaps that was the collusion so that's a great move for freedom of speech way to go twitter it's disgusting. well this is also international we'll bring you more of the week's headlines and i just a moment including claims that hillary clinton and team initiated the information. on trump's alleged links to moscow we'll cover that story in just a. few there is driving the tip that there. is basically a do it going to be then we go off the screen this is watch for you there but that . you and i always say and this is. becoming more and more
2:17 am
a fundamental challenge. no exclusion when they feel. they come together to get you we each of you on your world. 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 controls the media the media the voters elect the businessman to run this country business equals power you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before . it's good have you with us today for your news as u.s. congress tries to piece together what led to the deaths of four servicemen in new
2:18 am
jack this month lawmakers complained they had no idea their troops were even in that african nation three weeks ago a group of american and local troops were ambushed by islamic state fighters for us nigerian soldiers were killed the pentagon admits full support was not provided until two hours after the battle began. thought to have the second biggest u.s. military presence in africa eight hundred out of six thousand troops all across the continent the tiny country of djibouti is first with four thousand servicemen somalia and cameroon house four hundred and three hundred soldiers respectively. and now has more on the wiring disconnect between u.s. lawmakers troops on the ground. so it's official washington has intervened in so many different countries even u.s. senators seem to have lost track but i didn't know there was a thousand troops and this is an endless war without boundaries no limit to the
2:19 am
geography and senator graham is not the only one senator graham there you didn't know we had a thousand troops and did you know i did not and there you have it two sitting senior senators one republican and the other a democrat had no idea the u.s. currently has over one thousand troops in news year so how is this possible past administrations have used the authorization for use of military force against terrorists or the. to warrant military operations involving non-state actors or terror organizations passed by congress right after september eleventh that allows the president to use force against those who planned it committed or aided the nine eleven attacks and only one person voted against it congressman. let's step back for a moment let's just just for a minute and think through the implications of our actions today so that this does not spiral out of control according to a two thousand and sixteen congressional research office report the bush and obama
2:20 am
administration's use the on thirty seven occasions to initiate military action in over a dozen countries and now with trump it appears there's even less oversight the pentagon has just announced that they will no longer disclose troop numbers in iraq and syria but can this apply to other regions besides iraq and syria. and read the. complete. lack. of transparency and accountability on british tradition you know it's gotten significantly worse. touted this is reform if you want to reform this policy and undermine it. wonderful reading you're going to even listen to me. how many troops to. the various places and. when the former defense secretary and cia director at leon panetta was once
2:21 am
asked about how many wars the u.s. was engaged in seemed rather lost it's a good question but you know it's you have to stop it and you know i have to stop and think about the now with very little transparency in u.s. operations overseas may not exactly be quite the subject to laugh about some iraq on our team washington d.c. . it's been revealed hillary clinton's election team on the democratic national committee helped bankroll the now infamous dossier on donald trump the document was published back in january and outlined unsubstantiated links and deals between moscow and the trump campaign in the run up to last year's presidential election here's how the u.s. president has reacted to the latest news very sad what they've done with this fake it was made up. i understand they paid a tremendous amount of money and hillary clinton always denied it the democrats always denied it i think it's a disgrace it's just really a very it's
2:22 am
a very sad it's a very sad commentary on politics that this was the dossier claimed had close links to russia and that the kremlin compiled compromising information on the us president the report also contained lewd out a geisha is on trump which sparked a scandal when published less than two weeks before his inauguration a buzz feed was first to break the story and that would admitted the allegations were unverified the story was immediately run by c.n.n. and other. former british intelligence officer behind the dossier that contained explosive allegations about president donald trump he also addressed the dossier of alleged dirt on donald trump in russia the report included unsubstantiated claims that russian intel. compiled a dossier on mr trump during visits to moscow. to america host ed schultz says the new revelations on the clinton team's involvement in the trump claims reflects very badly on u.s.
2:23 am
politics i'm disappointed because it's a sad commentary for politics in our country and i also think it's very damaging to the process but this in boulder the president and his credibility because he has said all along he has been a victim of fake news you can't get any more fake than this we're getting after a surrogate that went out on the cable shows in this country for months on end that tried to blame this on russia and accused the russians and the trump campaign colluding to deep six hillary clinton in the election i think this is horribly damaging for the democrats i think the democrats are going to have to distance themselves from hillary clinton and i think hillary clinton has to answer a lot of questions about how and why c.n.n. is credentials have been questioned on a number of times when it came to russia related stories at a news outlet has now launched a fact checking ad campaign which has already received quite a response. this is an ad. some people trying to tell you that it's
