4:01 pm
here with you tonight thanks for joining us on the program. more than a year of tensions in italy's ruling coalition have come to a head the prime minister has resigned after the country's interior minister. called for a vote of no confidence once again leaves italy in a deep political crisis. yeah. well that resignation over it's nice prime minister said because they had been widely speculated for the last few days and now it's happened to force plunging italy into a fresh political crisis in his resignation speech on tuesday often he noticed a blistering attack on the deputy prime minister i mean to him in the cemetery you
4:02 pm
so beany over the leak basically accusing him of doing everything to profiteer self and profiteers party the government and he accused the to you so binney of being the one who's driving the government into crisis you make it all up to the poll mantra debate is over we'll go to the president of the republic to officially communicate then to this government and tendon my resignation this prime minister well salvini had cooled 2 weeks ago for snap elections amidst the summer holidays in italy saying that the coalition government as it stood was simply workable saying that he just couldn't work under the constraints of that government. in the world of business of the man as those that produce things but it's really demands action so the only thing that italy canada forward is to waste time anyone who is wasting time is doing so because they're afraid of losing the seat we are asked that we vote as soon as possible and the italians would choose
4:03 pm
a government. a coalition government was formed back in june of 2018 and it was put in or pretty or coupling between the left wing party of the 5 star movement and the anti immigration anti establishment party over the league the 2 coming together to form that government back in june of last year following the elections in march since then what we have seen is a rather rocky road with the partners having several disagreements including recently about a railway link. between france and italy what also has happened is this been a reversal in the fortunes of the 2 parties since those elections about 14 months ago back then we saw the 5 star movement taking the lion's share of the vote compared to the league and now it seems to have flipped on its head with poll suggesting if a vote was held today that the league that's material being his party would take some 38 percent of the vote significantly higher than what the polls say would
4:04 pm
happen to the 5 star movement so what does this all mean for italy now well that's perhaps the $1000000.00 question there is the chance that the feinstein movement to last through the biggest party could now go on to form another coalition government with other parties including the democratic party led by italy's former prime minister material renzi and that was something that the materia sylvie actually hinted about today when he launched his own attack in the senate we could also see a technocrat government or a national unity government or of course there could be those snap elections research for the italian center for electoral studies pop out who believe such a coalition never had a chance of long term survival. it was the 1st government form might these who bought these devices and were never been in government and their legal previously in government. governments so this was a new experimental coalition governments we have problems that clearly show
4:05 pm
governments that these unique one was not expected to last a bit longer regardless of what that means there is hope in the end be clear in the beginning but of course nobody expected these 4 let so close of their balance to be left out and this is legally surprising and even m.p.'s from the league didn't really understand why salvini moves so fast in this very moment. the u.s. attorney general william barr has removed the acting director of u.s. prisons from his post after the recent death of disgraced the millionaire geoffrey epstein some lawmakers have praised the decision amid concerns over the conditions at the jail where he took his own life epstein was convicted of paedophilia back in 2007 now at the time he was sentenced to 13 months in prison last part of a deal signed by then u.s. attorney alexander across the epstein had many friends in high places among them donald trump bill clinton and prince andrew at the time of his death the financier
4:06 pm
was awaiting trial for sex trafficking offenses it was being held at a facility reserved for the most dangerous criminals among them the drug. epstein had been taken off suicide watch that's the spike having made a recent attempt on his own life we spoke to his former lawyer mark she thinks conditions at the jail may have pushed him over the edge. the conditions to which he was subjected would go even the needs of the strongest among us it's this is one of the toughest federal pretrial detention facilities in the country and the conditions are inhumane epstein was subjected to conditions that were similar to those of guzman but not remotely justified by his character or what he was accused of because he was not. a violent individual like chapo was alleged to have been he's not
4:07 pm
a guy who has escaped from prior facilities like guzman was alleged to have done so one would be comparing apples and oranges to liken the 2 to each other but yet their conditions of confinement were strikingly similar and there's something fundamentally wrong with that and what's fundamentally wrong with that is that jeffrey abstain did not belong in that facility to begin with. just my own personal opinion it wouldn't surprise me to learn of anything that might have happened with jeffrey epstein and in my view at that in that facility the real story the real miracle is that we don't hear about these sort of things more about murdered pretrial detainees or suicidal pretrial detainees because the facility. is barbaric and it's a whole it's it's it's like i don't use the word lightly lightly but it's sort of
4:08 pm
like an american go log for people who have not yet been convicted of anything so the real shock here is that we don't hear about deaths at pretrial oppressive onerous pretrial detention facilities like the m.c.c. more often. any of us could one day find ourselves rightly or wrongly on on the. business and of of the united states department of justice and nobody nobody said should be subjected to the conditions that epstein was exposed to for many reasons one of which is it compromises your mental and physical functioning and you can't assist adequately in preparing your own defense and it crushes people we don't really know what happened to mr epstein but but certainly i believe personally that being a locked in a facility like that under extraordinary conditions would logically wreak havoc with one's mind and body so i certainly i certainly believe that they
4:09 pm
personally that they could have played a role absolutely i mean i think we would be foolish to to deny that but again one doesn't want to treat the symptom while ignoring the disease and the disease is. how people are routinely denied bail with a shocking ease given the laws that congress passed allowing prosecutors and judge to do that abstain did not belong locked up pending trial and he didn't belong in a hellhole like that before he had been convicted about anything. social media platforms twitter and facebook say they've blocked a number of chinese accounts for trying to undermine the protests at home call. we are disclosing a significant stayed back to informational parishioners focused on the situation hong kong this disclosure consists of 936 a cancer vegetating from within the people's republic of china over all these
4:10 pm
accounts were deliberately and specifically tempting to sow political discord in hong kong including undermining the legitimacy and political positions of the protest movement on the ground we removed 7 pages 3 groups and 5 facebook accounts involved in coordinated in authentic behavior as part of a small network that originated in china and focused on hong kong. the protest movement in hong kong was thought it back in june over draft legislation allowing the extradition of suspects the mainland china demonstrations since brought into political issues over the last 11 weeks rallies have frequently turned violent with police using tear gas and rubber bullets against protests this little cause it takes a closer look at what's motivating the protests this. freedom fair elections democracy it's words like these you'll find throughout the western media coverage of the protests in hong kong but the reality of it is all much more complicated was. god.
4:11 pm
it's not just politics motivating the violence racial slurs against people from mainland china can be heard throughout the crowds and seen graffitied on official buildings protesters have also been seen brandishing the infamously racist pepe the frog me an internet hate symbol and this is enough phobic violence has even spilled over to protests in other countries. was. this anti china extremism comes from a concept called hong kong exceptionalism the idea that hong kong has more in common with the west than with china because of its british colonial past and that ideologies it here in sa are not exactly shy about their love for all things anti china 6.
4:12 pm
despite all the american flags and anthem singing donald trump says he had no idea why protests were being blamed on the u.s. this cabinet might have an explanation since they've been meeting with one of the opposition's main icons jimmy lie. appreciation lies a self-made billionaire who's made a huge mark on hong kong's opposition movement he landed himself in hot water with beijing back in 2012 when his newspaper published an ad portraying pregnant chinese women as locusts and he's very open about his feelings for american values we need to know that america is behind us by backing our samaritans sharing moral authority because we're the only place in china which shows you volleys and is fighting the same battle you have with china but there's another younger and not so rich rebel leader at play here too joshua wong a fresh 22 year old face of revolution
4:13 pm
a face loved in many corridors of washington to marco rubio was so in all he nominated wong for a nobel peace prize leave it to washington to nominate a leader of violent protests for peace when it suits them agenda the u.s. is very determinately supporting these protesters every arm of the corporate media. radio television social media is is raising them and always referring to them as pro-democracy protesters where they're not at all this has nothing to do with democracy and they are determined to sabotage in every way that they can any normal relations between china with hong kong and it it is creating intentionally a great deal of confusion among young people who have been pulled into this against their own interests we asked the u.s.
4:14 pm
state department and leaders of the hong kong protest movement to comment on the alleged links so far will not receive the response the tensions between beijing and washington are also high over another part of china taiwan beijing is furious the trumpet ministrations approved the sale of fighter jets to the island and is warning it will take action if the deal goes ahead. china has made numerous solemn representation to the u.s. on the sale of the f. 16 v. jets to taiwan the u.s. just about all the consequences triggered by the sale it's $8000000000.00 u.s. dollars it's a lot of money that's a lot of jobs and we know they're going to use this f. $16.00 responsibly of the deal still needs to be approved by the u.s. senate if it goes through those will be the 1st sale of f. 16 fighters the taiwanese since 1902 previous requests for jets by taiwan were rejected by the obama administration. last month the u.s. state department approved another orms deal with taiwan that includes $100.00 times
4:15 pm
more than $200.00 missiles the deals worth $2200000000.00 a ton beijing also accuse the u.s. of meddling saying it would cut ties with every american company involved in the deal. but i want is officially recognized by only 18 countries the u.s. has been not officially supporting villains but a tree since the $9090.00 s. so on and sees taiwan as part of its territory china expert says beijing will point the finger at washington if tensions escalate. there is some unity in washington to go hard on china and some of these folks who are elected they're basically elected with the same funding for the people who got people into the trumpet midst gratian and who fund the think tanks in washington and so it's all basically representing the same elite interests china sees this as an aggressive move by the u.s. to try to provoke them into war the chinese basically up and say that the u.s.
4:16 pm
is going to be at fault here because there are not being consistent and not honoring promises that were made in previous administrations and so this big departure is going to be on the u.s. and that's where they want to place the blame here if there is any military escalation that happens. to us democrats have been accused of abandoning some of the core values in their bid to get rid of donald trump in 2020 so if they collaborated on a book on how to defeat him by someone accused of sexual harassment. given him a book once again put him in the position of authority and that is
4:17 pm
a slap in the face to all of their women that he has. for the 1st time many women felt empowered to speak about their own experiences because society to them seriously and to their claims to be credible there's an awakening taking place across the country women and yes men are well aware of the sexual misconduct and harassment that has gone on for yes i think the policy has been quite equivalent and strong in saying we have a 0 tolerance policy. you know it is states has conducted its 1st test of a 500 kilometer cruise missile type previously by and for over 30 years under now defunct arms control treaty between moscow and washington russia's foreign minister playing the us was preparing for the test long before the treat expired on the 2nd
4:18 pm
of all. if the should be known from october of last year when the us national security advisor john bolton visited us he said that donald trump statement about washington's withdrawal from the treaty is not an invitation to dialogue but a final decision it appears that then or maybe even earlier the u.s. started preparing the missile tests conducted on sunday and banned by the i.n.f. treaty the department of defense conducted to fly test of the conventionally configured ground launch cruise missile the us west coast sunday the test missile exited its ground mobile launcher. and accurately in fact it is target after more than $500.00 commanders or flight the intermediate range nuclear force treaty was signed between the 2 rivaling superpowers back in the cold war and $987.00 it burned certain types of short and mid range missiles expired on the 2nd of august with donald trump saying he'd no willingness to extend it due to alleged violations
4:19 pm
by the kremlin russia's denied the claims and repeatedly invited washington for talks some parts of the us establishment loanwords welcoming to the idea. the united states must regain the strategic advantage by expediting the development and deployment of a new generation of ground launched missiles now the department of defense will be able to conduct does research and development activities bento to an f. 3 t. so the department of defense will still have some gilding though system they couldn't be full united states has said that this is not nuclear capable and the united states is planning for another test probably in november this one and somewhere between 508000 kilometers a range but the one that they're testing in november it's miscreants 300-4000 kilometers or range that's another in this year is a very unfortunate moves that have been going on for the past couple of years at least well we can actually dated back to 2001 with the announcement that the u.s.

is going to clarify the a.b.m. treaty there's only one major nonproliferation treaty remaining the new start treaty which ends and 2021 and the united states has already indicated that it will almost certainly pull out of that one also or not when they do that one which means we are on the verge of nuclear anarky. was the media warning russian radiation monitoring stations have gone silent following an explosion earlier this month for the military site in the country's north auntie's when jim acosta has been digging deeper into the story. 2 russian radiation money touring stations have resumed operation and this news follows a number of alarming reports that were made earlier by a number of 4 foreign news media claiming that several russian radiation money touring stations went offline allegedly after a nuclear accident that happened in russia north on august 8th now the wall street

4:22 pm
from both military and civilian specialists and there's no significant change there we are still taking precautionary measures to avoid any surprises. me now right after the accidents there were indeed very few details of what happened and that mostly fueled western tabloids so with the rumors of a true novel like disaster whispered radiation leak also appearing in the media with some even writing about the number of the disease to being higher now later the russian nuclear agency issued a report. revealing the accident happened and the platform after a series of trials and that there was no threat of a radiation leak. here is that a practical mike has apologized after pictures showing the mock assassination of president trump went viral illinois state senator martin the son of also said entertainment hired for one of his fundraiser but was behind the incident the
