issue of the trump administration this whole hearing remembering as well that president trump got through a nother supreme court judge or search earlier so this will be the second of trump's picks for the supreme court which would significantly alter the nature of that supreme court certainly its political allegiance regardless of the fact that justices say they have no political bias we heard in britain kavanagh's a statement to the senate earlier that yes there is some political bias very clearly in this particular judge but one must also look as well for some sign of nonpartisanship within the senate and this is only one of that we have seen a republican senator break ground she will be voting she says she will oppose the nomination at least some of mccuskey however she says as well that she will not record a no vote when it happens she will record a prison for the reason for this is that another republican said don't senator is
10:01 pm
attending his daughter's wedding this afternoon so he may not be here for the vote so as a matter of courtesy she is going to in effect stand in for him even though she opposes the nomination very confusing some of the issues within the u.s. senate it really is a great deal making it all very clear for us mike many thanks for joining us there from washington d.c. . lucas is a professor of american studies at the university of birmingham and he joins us now via skype from birmingham scotty's surprised after all that's happened brett kavanaugh is still likely to be voted to the supreme court. no i'm not because the goal of the white house and of the g.o.p. leadership was to ram through this nomination before november's elections on most at all cost and even though that was delayed and should have been delayed because of the sexual assault allegations the white house and that leadership move to actually prevent any effect of investigation put pressure on any undecided senators
10:02 pm
and the decisive move was susan collins of maine who if i think she had opposed kavanah would have doomed the confirmation she either chose to believe or she gave way to the pressure and that means you will have a fifty one to forty nine vote today which will put him on as the ninth supreme court just do you think this whole issue is going to have any impact on the midterms and you think any republican votes as might punish that policy for the us i think it's bigger than the midterm elections i think you're going to see a decided shift in american politics in the next generation and here's why i say this whatever effect this has and four weeks time on the elections you know whether or not you get a boost in women who are upset by this decision so it favors the democrats whether republicans rally around the front administration but i think beyond brett kavanaugh even beyond the question of a partisan supreme court is this idea that women need to be heard that the issue of
10:03 pm
sexual violence needs to be understood and dealt with that the wall of shame the wall of fear cannot be maintained what we see the past couple weeks says in order to get kavanah through republicans and mainly the white elderly men on the judiciary committee affectively said to want to cues or christine bossy for we don't believe you. the other women who have raised allegations against kavanah were not even interviewed probably by the f.b.i. dozens of witnesses were not interview and i think while that gives you the short term victory at least for the republicans of getting cabin onto the court it does two things one is i think every decision he makes will be scrutinized to see in fact it's rather not a lot of them but more importantly i think women are one for political office i think women will rally and i think you're going to see a shift in american politics which is beyond democrats and republicans so that all
10:04 pm
men and all women deserve respect and don't need to be pushed to the side that deserve not to be pushed aside for the sake of party politics very interesting indeed scott licas thanks taking time to join us live from birmingham thank you. still ahead here on this closing human rights groups calling the saudi arabia to verify their case and of missing. you could be inside syria and a couple of steps here in iraq i'm some of the job aid and i'll tell you what the iraqi security forces with the help of the with the coalition are doing not just to man the border but also to boost in the local economy. and support when all day returns forgiven denying allegations of sexual assault called they have the latest . saudi arabian journalist jamal khashoggi has now been missing for four days he was

10:06 pm
consulate searched it seems that they're trying to use some sort of back channels to find a solution to this crisis because whilst the raise concern right from the saw about the whereabouts of the well being there is also growing concern about the diplomatic fallout switch will happen as a result of that because up until now both ankara and riyadh have enjoyed good diplomatic relations finally there have also been caused by human rights watch and other human rights organizations to have questioned the release they put the onus on the saudis because ultimately the last place where he was seen was entering this how do you consider that is essentially to saudi territory albeit on turkish land and therefore the saudis it is up for that to them to confirm his well being and to release him and confirm his whereabouts as soon as possible. interpol is asking china's government if it knows where the presence of the and satele police agency is on the whole way hasn't been heard from since he flew home to china from france

a potential was in pretty destructive flooding in costa rica haven't got the figures but it's going to be two hundred millimeters i would guess and of course it runs through soft tissue sort of red it easily eats away so the position then and we're talking about saturday now is this small potential of circulation but look at the dark green it's the rain will be the thing here not where winds are despite weather not least to develop the rain will continue and it's heading straight for this southern part of nicaragua and i suspect we've got another one or two hundred millimeters of rain to come and he saw what happened in costa rica or. well thanks very much so i had hair on al-jazeera. didn't i think that your. emotions run high end japan as a famous face market is forced to close down. new questions about media freedoms in hong kong as a well known down this is refused a work visa. and a small things got

10:23 pm
that already was lower than the day because you can see how the number of bodies windley as they're digging into that rubble. even a rocks west an atom bomb dess as a struggling to rebuild their lives months off the defeats of i still says attacks in the area still continue sporadically which it's a lang rebuilding efforts on the return of many residents and reports on the iraqi syrian border. this road leads to the syrian capital damascus i hope i'm is the last iraqi town before entering syria and all to the last place where i see fighters were pushed out from. that's why security forces here keep an eye on who goes in and out with. the term is secured by dozens of checkpoints by. still there are small groups which pop up here and trying to disrupt security and stability of the town. just a third of all crimes quarter of a million residents remain because of security concerns and slow reconstruction
10:24 pm
said to much more commom to what we're wasting for basic services to be restored but so far nothing's happened we call on the authorities to speed up play work to bring us walks and electricity and in the everyone knows that we have no services we depend on private generators it cost ten dollars per ampere and we can't afford it most of us are unemployed and we can't find jobs. iraqi forces know their long term success after isis defeat depends on providing solutions in these remote towns and villages in. the people witness eyesores destruction atrocities that's why it's key to strengthen the relationship between the forces and locals and we admit that security forces sometimes have flaws but the ministry of defense intelligence and military establishment are closely monitoring whoever tries to do bad things and to create the relationship between us and the people the fear and lack of opportunities are shared across. the vast desert which was ruled by eisel and even
10:25 pm
in the greener pastures on the banks of the euphrates. these women told us that their relatives went missing in their isis and it's a struggle every day to put food on the table further upstream is the syrian end of the river euphrates very. still hold a few pockets the syrian democratic forces are not side and the iraqi security forces on this and have been able to clear almost all areas from isis but the question remains whether they'll be able to maintain the peace after winning the war. this meter fluctuates with the wind instead of electricity the biggest challenge here is rebuilding stripped underground cables and power generators for copper and brass now millions of dollars are required to restart just this substation which used to cater for three districts and nasi or me at this and people on a daily basis keep asking us how we have progress in restoring the power grid people are fed up from displacement and want to go back home they want incentives
10:26 pm
and hope this is only achieved by getting power back people in a time see electricity and water of life and they need it desperately in conversations their worries outweigh their hope but in the end they say hope is all they can hold on to osama bin. time on the iraq syria border. hong kong's immigration authorities have refused to renew the visa of a prominent foreign journalist raising concerns of a club press freedom assistance being linked to an event the journalists host said involving an independence activist in august there were paul and has been the immigration department where people are demanding answers i tell my family i'm not going to jail here and many are calling it a revenge tactic victor mallet asked vice president of the foreign correspondent club had defied the beijing government and the hong kong government's objections and refused to cancel an event involving an independence activists are now so you said the political party funded by that independence activist has been banned under
10:27 pm
national security grounds that's the first time that's ever happened and just weeks later when mallett went to renew his work visa wright was rejected here trying to encourage over the past few years to process of just deterioration of freedom has been exaggerated and it is one reason us and we should. international community of a home grown people always very angry about the section but we still feel pressed they are working here with freedom and they should be respect the. true story the protesters are calling this a disgrace they say the journalist is being punished for not toeing the government line going now this is an alarming development particularly for the media community on kong has always been a base for foreign journalists where they can operate without restrictions and the visa regime here has always been seen as transparent and fair and the financial times the amount of work says this is the first time they've encountered such
10:28 pm
a problem with i believe a lot of heat from home people like me who was born and raised in a home had never thought that one day international media would be expelled from hong kong like that we believe that such things would only happen in china hong kong has semi autonomous status and enjoys for. adams not seen across the border in mainland china but since landmark twenty fourteen pro-democracy protests the chinese government and hong kong's government have made our president and moves to limit political activity and freedom of expression raising fears that it's just a matter of time before hong kong becomes just like any other city in china. chris chang is as her director at hong kong free press that's a nonprofit online newspaper he says the case sets a dangerous precedent on press freedom in the region it was a very first time at least for the reason moment that we heard of a journalist being not able to use these it renewed in hong kong there were cases
10:29 pm
of people who were not able to get into but never the case of a journalist who has been in hong kong being more or less expose from. being main point of this is that during the talk and therefore before to talk the activist party was completely beyond. the talk so what's legal what whatever mr bout mullet what's legal so that the government has to explain why it's still legal for not renewing this is but the government has said it will not usually not comment on individual cases so we will probably never have been official on what was the reason at least fifty people i think held in the democratic republic of congo after a tanker truck crashed into another vehicle it happened near the town of cause sun so in central congo province it was placed several other people burned and there's
10:30 pm

10:31 pm
remind them of the time when together we built a very different country. dad was listened to cation minister and promises to return to the days when the workers' party implemented social programs it was didn't millions of brazilians from poverty that memory has helped transfer some of the popularity to had. especially on the industrial outskirts of sao paolo with the workers' party was born because. of the working class that gave us dignity before dipping we had no access to credit cards we always took buses never an airplane. dice doesn't know much about had that only whom he represents. had dads because strength is also his biggest weakness he needs the support of these workers who are part of the hard core support base but that means he can't this in some self from
10:32 pm
a former president who are millions of other brazilians identify with his country's worst ever a corruption scandal. that himself is under investigation for taking illegal campaign contributions in two thousand and twelve a charge he denies and although he's regarded as a moderate within his left wing party it's a hard sell. i think no fooling would not be a toy in the hands of his mentor but right now he needs to stick to image to make it to the second round. but as his followers chant lula is had and had this lula the unlikely candidate has little time to convince the undecided that he wouldn't be the puppet of an imprisoned former president. at least twenty three endangered lions have died in the past three weeks in a national park in western india conservationists say in fighting
