the r.t. world news update for you first then the president of brazil's been dubbed the trump of the tropics for is right leaning views and indeed he chose the united states as the destination for his first official visit to cement that relationship but while things were swimmingly going well overseas at home. is facing a political scandal over reports of his alleged ties to violent gangs as more on the other issues. the new controversial president of brazil is on his first international trip since being elected he's visiting the united states and meeting a man who has often been compared to u.s. president donald trump now both men are known for their big mouths and their disdain for political correctness but back at home bowls in are always facing a scandal not for his words before his ties to right wing militias which the country is notorious for.
1:02 am
which. earlier this month two former police officers were arrested and charged with the killing of mariel franco a left wing elected official now when the police raided the home they found one
1:03 am
hundred seventeen automatic rifles as well as computers full of intelligence information on left wing journalists activists and politicians so where was this mini command center of extremism located well it turns out it was on the same block as bolton are as home in fact a photo of both sonora with one of the suspected killers has surfaced when confronted about it also narrow gave a flat out. nial media has always criticised me they wanted to simplistically a connection but i never saw the gentleman in my gated community i don't need is going to have much time to you know you can gauge in social life with them this is not the only tie to extremism back in january five former leaders of a right wing gang were arrested and it was revealed that the wife and daughter of one of the gang leaders was actually employed by bolsa narrow son flavio son of the brazilian leader joined his father in taking a photograph with the gang leaders at a birthday party furthermore flavio also gave an award to one of the gang members
1:04 am
a medal of honor now there was an incident back in two thousand and eleven that also raise suspicion a judge was murdered after a controversial trial and we heard this interesting statement from balsa narrow son made this judge be with god but the upset and could choose his way she said police offices and quote sessions contributed to having many enemies so when both scenarios sat down with donald trump he had some pretty serious charges hanging over his head a lot more serious than say unreleased tax returns now both scenario before he met with donald trump sat down with another powerful u.s. entity the u.s. central intelligence agency now the cia's ties to right wing extremists and death squads in south and central america is hardly new information and at this point there got to be folks inside of trump's team who are wondering if his photo op with
1:05 am
this rightwing brazilian counterpart is really such a good idea to look him up and r.t. new york brazilian political analyst bruno lima russia says even having his photo taken with the militias is a disgrace for the president. president being seen in old photographs of dictators with militiamen and with. it is. the position of the president and the presidency. state because. security policies is very much it's much more connected to the states while. the safety. regime still. there's another serious. employee called. in his self that is very. very committed
1:06 am
so. i would say the hard core belief there is. president trump used the joint news briefing to reiterate washington's commitment to squeezing venezuela's economy but we haven't done the toughest of sanctions as you know we've done. i would say right down the middle but we can go a lot tougher if we need to do that. and the means to get on a chair enough note of the two leaders exchanging football shirts with each other's names on trouble sonora found common ground on venezuela both recognize self declared interim president as the country's legitimate leader he also called on venezuela's military to switch sides while the us president once again pointed out that all options are still on the table his first venezuela strongly rejected the statements made during the meeting the country's foreign ministry said it's deeply concerned about personal influence on the brazilian president got forced to from
1:07 am
gregory will put co-founder of the website venezuela analysis dot com you believe trumbull sonora want things to deteriorate further for caracas. for one thing i mean certainly the trump administration it consists of many individuals who are very eager for a military intervention and then there's been a lot of talk that they might do something like a panama style and intervention in venezuela but at the moment the problem is that the neighboring countries are not at all in favor of this and so the u.s. would have to go a little on and so they're having to weigh that ass against each other so i'm thinking they're hoping for that interation of the situation in minnesota and then depending on how things go are they might push again for an actual military which other voices here russia's deputy foreign minister has warned the u.s. against any attempts to use force in venezuela saying that the cop spoke to r.t. . we reject and we deny any
1:08 am
reason to build up policies like the us press use on concepts like humanitarian intervention which has been around for a while and was deliberately devise to you know build bases for something that was called early and still is being called as colored revolutions. we strongly urge the us side aged any temptation to resort to military power it includes a warning against so to say hard core message military intervention which cannot be excluded given that type of behavior we see on the us side in recent years. how can one blame the governments of some mismanagement on wrongdoing while simultaneously at the same time depriving these very government of huge assets its
1:09 am
may possess and was able to possess before i mean the rivers should be done in our view to assuage the humanitarian difficulties of the country. this is something that is completely legitimate but we have ourselves experienced similar things were russian diplomatic properties were deprived from russia when russian diplomatic premises in the us were entered by the u.s. officers without any permission on the part of russia this is the we how we international law and normal practice is being looked into by the government of this country. what is needed most is political dialogue intravenous dialogue the east on. constitution and international actors who are able to offer good offices otherwise we will face further difficulties and the international system will suffer if this continues we urge everyone to consider how much
1:10 am
this dialogue needed right now and we welcome the readiness of the government of nicolas maduro to confirm its openness for such an aisle. well meantime president to use the briefing to president nicolas maduro of a choking venezuela's economy. happening there is a disgrace this was one of the wealthiest countries in the world and all of a sudden it's just it's greed stricken poverty stricken no food no water no air conditioning no anything no power for a long time last week no power and that's going to break down again because it's being held together by threats so while washington claims venezuela is impoverished two filmmakers who spent a month shooting a documentary in caracas last year say the situation actually is not as they saw it they shared their findings with my colleague. that at best it's not.
1:11 am
a good actor. thank you for that if you're. just back to this book that i'm going to consume actually when i arrived in caracas before before actually as a sort of take a few steps back before i went to venice whether there are a lot of people i know in the journalist community is there well actually you know and maybe you should take a parcel going to venezuela you know the crime rates around us the economic and social situation is appalling not to mention the political situation and actually when i arrived i mean life was still bustling in caracas i mean people were still going to jobs people were still continuing with their lives people going to find it hard to believe at the u.n. say three point four million but as wayland have fled to the country three point four million people don't leave a country if everything's ok or at least manageable well this is interesting i
1:12 am
wonder where these figures come because according to the government in people cheating last year seven percent of. you know school. during that particular mission it went five to seven percent. so also a hundred and twenty thousand total millions actually settle last year in minnesota . hyperinflation it concentrates on those things for. things like sheep like electricity bills water bills other things give us a rounded picture of this because you spent a month in venezuela more recently than probably most of our audience did and let's face it you work in the news business you know that pictures of suffering sells more than than anything else but even in troubled countries life has a spectrum so give us a fuller picture then life in venezuela tough as it is how is it really. as
1:13 am
you said it is tough i mean it is hard i would say yes this is our moment columnist but i would say definitely the guy. and has made mistakes but i would also say the u.s. sanctions and he definitely sort of feel you know the effect of u.s. sanctions in the sense of lack of u.s. dollars the lack of being able to use you know u.s. financial instruments and i mean i would say that people here do eat. you know you know the society functions meanwhile other on occasions of all this marriage has sanctions of and on venezuela and iran to fuel oil prices which hit a twenty nine thousand high change day the rise has also been supported by ongoing supply cuts from all cartel unpeg last year us whole production and exports climb significantly as you can see here on this graph take comes amid washington's reliance of course on it shall production.
1:14 am
sanctions play a key role in the not only propping up the price of oil but also in allowing u.s. oil producers to gain a larger market share if you have sanctions and a you're reducing the opportunity for the iranians and that israel is to sell their oil well that means the u.s. shale producers can sell their oil through their refineries and on the texas coast in the northeast that previously used them as well in oil and for example i don't think that the price of oil can stay where it is i think is slowly going to decline notwithstanding whatever the saudis and russia do and nigeria and others with regard to the production cuts i think the slowing in europe and slowing in china
1:15 am
and now the slowing of the economy in the u.s. and that's why the sanctions will probably continue and maybe even intensify to try to reduce the supply to get the price back up. sidewall prices but connected storify are going to tell you about a raging for three days of the petro chemical plant outside hoost in texas storage tank containing highly components for gasoline glue and paint thinner as a billet place since sunday big all fire their fire crews have managed to contain much of what's gone on the blaze and now they say there's just a minimal risk of explosion all employees have been accounted for no injuries reported thankfully hussan authorities said monday that air quality around the facility was testing within normal guidelines as schools in the area were reopened tuesday. a fifty moscow time next german government bears legal responsibility for u.s. drone strikes directed and controlled from german territory that's according to a recent court ruling in a case brought by families of civilian victims in yemen daniel hawkins reports from
1:16 am
berlin. you. know why can't you can. i come to school. the relationship was incredibly intense it was passionate and it was enough relationship i'm less interested in the sexual side so i believe there is a section to mention to this for what it is i think we got the whole concern j.k. rowling mixed up will tell you but the j.k. rowling story later we get back to. what happened in germany and the i'm a little bit later about a bit of confusion this morning now doomsday some good news is apparently being delayed to see claims by us democrats that was only twelve years left to save the
1:17 am
earth from global warming of improved inaccurate scientists say the party's been mistaken in using those claims for their campaigns are explained. even back when t.v.'s look like that kids cartoons would portray those saving us from pollution as superheroes i am inclined to. go on to. the today you just can't be a successful democrat and presidential hopeful without being a bit of captain planet democrats be like how do i sound quare and make republicans look bad at the same time. thank god there is climate change the scientists are absolutely unanimous on this that we have no more than twelve years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis what the intergovernmental panel on climate change say it is that we have twelve years twelve years and we're like
1:18 am
the world is going to end in twelve years if we don't address climate change why this gary deadline of twelve years a few months ago u.n. environmental experts put together yet another alarming report showing the earth is continuing to heat up it's bad for the planet and everyone who lives on it some interpret it the following way experts say that we have until twenty thirty to avoid catastrophe the world has a little more than a decade time is running out to prevent global warming and it says the time's up andrea that the world has to do something we're reaching the cliff edge a little faster quite a bit faster and so it snowballed into a big trendy protest children have the impression their generation could be doomed oh signs. that we have twelve years to turn this around but suddenly there's that
1:19 am
hoops moment the associated press checks what those who want to run for the white house after say for a fact what was it that mr o'rourke said again the scientists are absolutely unanimous on this that we have no more than twelve years so a.p. actually got in touch with the scientists the panel did not say we have twelve years left to save the world this has been a persistent source of confusion the report never said we only have twelve years left well have a look at what they wrote on some liberal websites after the a.p. piece came out better is right on climate and the a.p. fact check is wrong it is the a.p. this is incorrect about climate. change not beta rule oh sure how can a democrat candidate get something wrong especially when his party essentially chose to rely on the so-called green new deal ahead of the election it's a set of proposals to address climate change you just can't lead down your next
1:20 am
generation of voters does a matter of faith and belief by guys like bedo and others who will walk out and say the world is going to end in twelve years and not receive any pushback and there's no laughter there's no one going now you've got to be kidding me there's no one standing up to them and saying you've clearly lost your mind which you have are a bunch of coreligionists in the room nodding in going yes it's terrible it was must do something elections in this country anywhere are not about convincing the middle they're about turning out your base and keeping the other guy's votes home and if you want to turn out your base of your leftist candidate preaching about climate change and how the other side is determined to see us all die horribly that's going to do get the job done for. us juries ruled the weed killer produced by chemical just monsanto was a major factor in causing cancer the man in california is the second person to successfully sue the firm on the same allegations the latest lawsuit was brought by

been out of job or who was an air mom alongside his brother will lead in a u.s. drone strike the germans through an air base on german soil were involved in these strikes and what had happened to my family and it is possible that my family would not have been a target of such strikes and drenched an air base not provided such information the case was initially dismissed by a court in cologne back in twenty fifteen the court has now ruled that in fact the base did play a central role in facilitating the relaying of data for drone strikes in yemen judges ordered the government to take all appropriate measures through ensure that the u.s. force was complying with international law and to press washington if necessary to get the answers they required it also ordered the government to investigate the questions and the concerns put forward by the family surrounding the legality of
1:24 am
that airstrike that gave a sermon he addressed the killings conduct of al qaeda and challenge them to present a religious authority that is willing to debate with him so he can demonstrate to the people that this behavior of al-qaeda is wrong he was taken out by the american strike unfortunately he was not killed by al qaeda he was killed by an american missile germany is a country that stopped arms shipments to saudi arabia which is a key player in the us. conflict described as one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes of this century and also a key u.s. ally however the use of the ramstein air base for facilitating drone strikes has carried on and this has come in for criticism from human rights representatives i think it is definitely a constant a contradiction that the german government is saying that the arms sales to the society is for the were in yemen have to be stopped in at the same time. do not
1:25 am
intervene to stop the drone strikes on human virus. this court case hasn't played out entirely how the job or family wanted it to they were hoping for a complete ban on the use of ramstein air force has said they will look into the ruling they will study it carefully but this can be viewed as an important first step in perhaps looking at the legality of various international legal framework surrounding the use of ramstein air base for conducting unmanned drone strikes in the yemen conflict. a senior advisor to canadian prime minister justin trudeau's resigned in the ongoing corruption scandal michael wernick now is the fourth senior official to step down over through those alleged interference in a bribery case that involves the s.n.c. leveland one of the world's largest engineering construction firms it twenty fifteen the company was charged with bribery and fraud in libya that allegedly paid ninety eight million dollars in bribes to gadhafi or officials to secure lucrative
