most times the government knows what they do and they do nothing. take jains take center stage in the alleged russian meddling scandal with google now joining facebook and twitter in declaring it will testify to congress that's in the hunt for signs of the pose an outside interference intensifies in the american media. catalan activists occupy local schools to prevent spanish police from closing down polling stations with the region poised to vote on an independence referendum deemed illegal by madrid close.
today marks two years since russia launched its anti terror campaign in syria we look back to what's been achieved in that time. hello there you are watching r.t. international broadcasting to you life in the russian capital only care and good to have you with us. google says it will cooperate with the u.s. or thora tease about alleged russian meddling in the twenty sixteen presidential elections it's the latest tech giant off to facebook and twitter to make headlines in the saga to pin down outside interference google will also reportedly conduct an internal investigation before it testifies in november earlier twitter published a report on alleged russian activities on the platform in which it said it had banned over two hundred suspicious accounts despite failing to link them directly
to russia it also took a swipe at r.t. by revealing confidential information regarding how much this channel spends on twitter. well from the u.s. election to buying facebook on twitter on sunday even disrupting the n.f.l. it seems that everything that goes wrong is tied back to percept earlier we discussed the allegations with media analyst lionel entrepreneur put down quite a missed for the hill news website what is troubling to most americans here is that the latest example involves playing race cards in american politics from some russian sources to try to divide americans their allegations with some that didn't at this point who are the russians russian government russian people people who speak russian what we don't know anti fracking ads black lives matter how is that going to help donald trump oh i know because it causes chaos details don't
matter just mentioned russia mentioned r.t. and we're off and running president putin and everyone else knows the exact truth the whole truth about what happened what it would prove relations is to stop it stop whether anyone will admit it or not is not stop stop interfering in the american system stop promoting racism or racial division promoting a political candidate or party in the united states by not doing the things that were on the news right now that they are doing one question what is the what is the best evidence you have to take all the time you want the best evidence you have of anything that you have attempted to accuse russia of you know the senate intelligence committee democrats and republicans the f.b.i. every law enforcement agency every cattle intelligence agency in america many many and most republican senators and republican members of congress republican and i'm
a liberal democrat republican agree with every word i just said about what russia has done i'm trying so hard to play along i swear to you i'm not trying to be don i don't understand if. somebody want to pay an ad for black eyes matter and if the boycott whatever it is so what if they were to buy an ad that is on the news already how is the russian bought story somehow worse deeper affecting people more than the other story i'm hearing ten thousand times on ten thousand other platforms. the rest of the mainstream media is not letting up and it's not like asians against russia either and listen bases rachel montero for example has accused russia of meddling just about everywhere from europe to the middle east some are context a closer look. i have reason to believe that russia does not watch this t.v. show so here's an experiment let's create a fake secessionist movement in the united states on the theory that russia will support secession of anyone in the west for any reason just because they'd
literally love for the west to break apart well lately it seems that rachel maddow covers russia more than any other topic for the past few months she's managed to connect almost every news event to russia she starts with fires at ukrainian ammunition depots but also conveniently fails to mention that such fires have happened multiple times two thousand and four in two thousand and five and two thousand and six but facts don't matter when her sole agenda is to blame russia now we might not be here to prove her wrong but we can however note that her reports are filled with in accuracies we saw that this week in iraq where russia was one of the only nations on earth that supported the northern iraq referendum in which the kurds voted this week that they should break off northern iraq from the rest of iraq and become their own independent nation now that's completely false the russian foreign ministry said in a statement that moscow supports unity sovereignty and territorial integrity but it doesn't stop there even somehow manages to drag catalonia into this there's also
going to be another independence referendum this weekend in spain where the capital on the region is voting on whether or not they'd like to break off and form an independent state apart from spain turns out russia is supporting that one too and she says russia supports the catalan independence referendum but contrary to what maddow says russia views the issue as spain's domestic affairs a position which spain's ambassador to russia believes to be perfect and accusations of course don't even and there russia for years in this country has actively promoted the secession of texas rachel maddow sentiments were quite similar to the rest of western media and one of the only pieces of evidence cited is that the group's members contained grammatical errors but that's not the only time russia was under rachel maddow spotlight she's been accusing trump of colluding with russia's. since the election you're not having a terrible terrible dream also you're not dead and you haven't gone to hell this is your life now this is our election now this is us this is our country we know of the russian attack on our election russian efforts to try to elect donald trump
president it did not seem to be a super labor intensive process it wasn't like an industrial process but you do need people to do the work and they're apparently still working now this summer it's still against us even though rachel maddow is enjoying these record high ratings it seems as if political discourse has been reduced to celebrity gossip which is quite unfortunate that there is no longer some sort of boundary between news and entertainment we spoke to a former u.s. congressman and presidential candidate ron paul what about the escalating accusations when i think it's a witch i think that they don't care about what hillary was doing and they want to very biased against that from pain so far they haven't showed me an ad that was a that was a pro trump that was paid for by the russian government most of the time you could look at some of this stuff that's going around and i think it's all coming from sore losers i thought it would be better with more outlets and the internet to
counteract some of this but it looks like sometimes this backfires and they actually end up using the internet to try to stir up more trouble frankly i don't have the sensation that boy this is a big deal you know if we don't find find out exactly what russians did to our elections you know the end of the world is coming i think that's a bit of fear mongering i can understand everything that is being used and going on i just see what's happening in this post-election period as a result of a bunch of sore losers that were shocked that they didn't win the election and now they're out there who sort of go after a witch hunt but i think that the responsibility for us ought to be is what i. has our government done has our government been involved after their own power and unfortunately were involved too much around the world.
spain's council lonia is on the edge of what could prove a momentous occasion is controversial independence referendum on sunday as planned but two and a half thousand polling stations will participate even though madrid has ordered them to be shut down as it will cause the vote is illegal locals have staged that and to prevent the crackdown artist medina conscionable reports from one school being used as a polling station where is standing very close to one of these schools located here and the barcelona city center it is a place for voting on sunday now police have been ordered to shut down old polling station so the people of this neighborhood decided to stay within the doors of the school inside of the school to prevent this from happening. what you see here was not planned beforehand we were living in this area of the city defending the place where we want to vote on sunday if you turn around you will see people when the
doors of this school open we will just swap places in order to keep defending this voting station the spanish authorities have already taken some harsh measures to prevent this referendum from going forward fourteen council and state officials have been arrested extra police has been sent into the city u.n. experts are saying that these sorts of restrictions are quite worrying us they may violate fundamental human rights now meanwhile as the days off of the referendum draws near at the splits and the council and society is really getting more and more avid and with the protests now taking into the streets people protesting both for and against this vote this is the biggest really constitutional crisis spain has seen and done. kate and nine seems to be willing to somehow backtrack and meet the other one halfway. law and order in the region is maintained by catalans regional police force known as the most because card because guards are this to
replace the spanish police locally almost ten years ago and is controlled by the council and government or consular forces have been tossed with preventing sunday's referendum from happening however it seems that they're all fay's them a trip that they may not comply and spanish government has deployed at national military forces known as the civil guard to the region to ensure the vote is stopped while some six thousand civil guards have been stationed at ports in the region arriving on spanish interior ministry charted cruise ships and they will stay in the region until october the third a spokesperson for catalonia local police force said that while orders will be followed that doesn't necessarily mean anything will be prevented. the whole bottom of the top of the one of the main roles of the police is to guarantee the inner unity of our society in this respect the catalonian police do not support those either for or against the referendum but rather all catalonians we have no choice
but to obey the decisions of the court and prosecutor's office when it's about control over crowds and public order we need to see what happens in each individual case if we can't prevent something it doesn't mean we don't follow orders but that most probably we can't do anything about it other than the spanish government says the referendum is intended to quote break the country however the debate over the referendum has extended beyond spanish borders as one of finnish and pay has published his email exchange with the spanish ambassador and finland in it he asks the ambassador to respect human rights in cuts alone and let people vote the spanish diplomat fired back saying that if one day finland needed the literacy it could go looking for it in catalonia or political analyst joan cost on pin us says the reply suggests the spanish government is on the edge. the response is embarrassing it is preposterous it is certainly not
a very diplomatic response and it clearly shows it displays that the spanish state apparatus the spanish authorities are extremely stressed and extremely nervous about what is going on in catalonia but they are a straight catalonia will become an independent state and it is quite striking how their european union he's very quick to respond whenever it comes to crisis in turkey the crisis in russia where us on the other hand whenever we have gross violations of fundamental rights and freedoms really need sterrett story it's it remains very very worryingly silent it turns a blind eye it turns up a deaf ear and this is something that should think about. russia's on to terror campaign in syria it's two years old today we'll take a look at what it's all changed after the show. there are some nazis in the fifty it's not the mass of the h.t.
voters but you know saying beds or culture of atonement. oh remembrance of nuns nazi crimes is wrong that's too much it's the attitude of some people in the. fifty's which by the way is no in the process of tearing itself apart to. what politicians do to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to be preached. to going to be pressed for survival before three of them can't be good. i'm interested always in the why. aren't question.
hello welcome back or today marks two years since the russian military operation to defeat terrorism in syria started here are some of its key achievements. look. and tear on the map you can see just how much territory i still has lost in syria since september twenty fifth in the russian defense ministry says eighty seven percent of syria is free of islamic state also a correspondence how witnessed some of the milestones all of the russian can pay.
for. this is the ad based in love hockey from which russian jets. against islam mix they targets here in syria. whether it's. the pilots are ready to go or what the moment's notice. is quite incredible to be standing hey in the pulse of the dead that decade since fifty of about the people around the world feed would be reduced to dust in this ad
fifty at that laid down by the romans almost two thousand years ago that isis staged one of its sickest massacres the russian military considers that the crowding jewel of the operation. and here in syria. one comes to the government side of aleppo the sees what you see on your way here just a few hundred meters away from the front line that. we're in. and the rebels are pushing into aleppo
again. the rescuers are now digging through the rubble looking for the body of a thirteen year old go. and did this they. were as a syrian still reposition overlooking the industrial quarter of that is sort of the battle is said to be theists isis fired back as we filmed shells speak on fooling around. we ran but the syrian batteries kept firing.
life even did as order is still far from normal but at least it will be starving to death and the more. we also pay to forward a former you can decide what this campaign will be remembered for. the most significant came at the beginning in. october twenty fifth teen the syrian government forces that point really on the rope i feel if we were at the gate of damascus. russia coming in leveled the playing field and saved the day for the syrian government you have to remember that before that point the western countries and the gulf countries had been sending massive assistance to the landis forces.
regardless of consequences for whether that actually helped i feel if the western powers work and saudi arabia were continuing to pour in distance to the jihadi forces but russia is going to venture and particularly with air strikes turned the tide. its impact is a wave of accusations of turning into a president of the rich french leader among all necron has said that his latest tax reform is aimed at encouraging investment and promoting talent in the country however people we spoke to in paris don't buy that saying the reform will work against them artificially do bensky explains. how do you know when you not just rich but your filthy wage. your cars and race horses a definitely signs that eve more than
a pretty penny to spend right. well not so much in france where the toys of the rich and famous no longer eligible for tax and that's causing quite a stir if you think this is. i think this is unfair but justice no longer exists in france there isn't a justice system anymore this is the hunger for power of a prince who wants to rule our country how he wants. government is only for the rich and he doesn't care about the poor we don't have a middle class there are only poor people who work for the rich yes i am outraged and we the young people should protest against this not cool switching how france taxes wealth his government claims that it wants to you have the extremely wealthy including tens of thousands of millionaires who fled the country because of the
country's old tax system and even though only a tiny fraction of french people pay the old tax my coins own m.p.'s admit they going to face a hard time explaining bass. how could i explain this to six year olds who own an old apartment that they will be taxed more than young trader's driving a ferrari so cool that the taxes raised under the old system i can still doubt by the money that robinson lost by people trying to avoid it but many people particularly pension is say they'll be harder hit under the new system and they fear reus they claim that my calls government is only for the rich and the super rich so it didn't skate ot see paris as discontent. it is just spoken about spoken number of protests in front denouncing the policies of the president one student protest in paris resulting clashes with police we spoke to
a member of a french left wing polity here told us that if nothing changes in the crossings policy his popularity will think further attracting a rich people to invest in france is always a similar agreement but mr mccrone forgot that france is one of the. best countries already best country for. foreign investment mr marquand was elected we we then we get equal rights presented by him in the media is like a new president meeting would change things and it was a light because what he's proposing is this same old politics that this is only been the first beneficiary for the rich are seeing the impact will be that less and less people. believe that mr michael and that popularity will go down. way to kill a giant one son so has been kicked out of the european parliament it's lobbyists were banned off the refusing to attend a herring herring was into whether
a secret studies into the safety of monsanto products were flawed or exaggerated for commercial ends lawmakers also slams the secrecy surrounding the studies how can we be sure of developed to conclusions about to safety or otherwise of life for states when there is lack of transparency when it is publicly revealed by the latest us court cases that decided to figure. by the company experts was forced to fight but life as they the b.m.a. patients mentioned is used by monsanto and some of its web code as chemists say it can cause serious i damage and it's toxic to animals and people the world health organization says it can also cause cancer they will go on a consumers' association say as long found i was happy to sweep all that under the carpet if it means bigger profits. the stakes for months down are extremely high they have an eight billion dollar industry that they're trying to protect in the
united states there are hundreds of people who have gotten cancer from exposure to monsanto's roundup herbicide who are currently suing the company we have a paper trail that goes back to the one nine hundred eighty s. that shows that monsanto knew that roundup caused cancer and they have been able to successfully suppress this evidence and it was only until two thousand and fifteen when the world health organization determined that monsanto's roundup was a probable human carcinogen they've been trying to cover their tracks and convince regulators that things should proceed business as usual in the united states and in the european union they spend hundreds of thousands of dollars euros every year to suppress the evidence that their products are dangerous and to improperly influence regulators and decision makers in parliament or in the congress if it means billions of dollars in sales to monsanto i think they probably would be better off
continuing to hide the evidence even if it means being banned from lobbying. share your thoughts on the day stories by following those on facebook and twitter you can also find me that nicky aaron on and join me again at the top of the hour. in the u.s. a child can choose a school. with his teachers we don't. recruit will says to the cadet is interested in going on in the military but we don't. see

even though president donald trump has talked of renominating federal reserve chair janet yellen to her post when her term expires at the beginning of next year he is meeting and interviewing others and one white house official who spoke to the media on the condition of anonymity and nobody reports that a former fed governor kevin wars is under consideration for the job according to the source the president met with along with treasury secretary steve nugent now is seen as hawkish and less accommodating to quantitative easing and future interest rate hikes than yellen trump has said previously that he would consider renominating yellen but he also is looking at other candidates including kerry collins the head of trump's national economic council.
