9:07 am
channels that she was really really badly injured by this so-called soda. but we have sent requests to the saudi led coalition in yemen asking for comment about the recent airstrike although so far we haven't had a response a spokesperson for the saudi coalition though had said previously their goal is to restore yemen's legitimacy and to make the country safe and secure however according to human rights groups the bombing campaign has resulted in a grave crisis in the country saudis have repeatedly insisted though they target the rebels and not civilians but you say again says he has evidence to the contrary . those bombs would have brought to me by children in that area just imagine i mean this yellow but i think a lot of just what i don't get home in their villages i mean i want to ask the u.s. ambassador who they live nation or supply in this one to the south of the coalition the only country that actually is using this bomb on yemen the only company that i
9:08 am

9:15 am
guess what. critics of critics claim the appointment of gina hospital along with other recent high as the trump administration might explain a fold in democratic party ratings is kind of more pain now expects watchdogs of american politics of observe that the democrats are losing their supposed upper hand when it comes to the upcoming congressional midterm elections now there are many different factors that play into this but one that stands out is that trump has doubled down on good old fashioned american warmongering he's appointed notorious war hawks pompei oh and bolton he's ripped up the iran deal and he's even unleashed a torrent of the missiles against the syrian arab republic more recently he's appointed gina haskell a.k.a. bloody gina to be the head of the cia she was allegedly involved in the agency's torture program of the past now we get a lot of democrats speaking up against gina haskell but as long as she gets two of
9:16 am
them to go along in her favor she's clear to be confirmed already we've got joe manchin from west virginia democratic senator speaking in her favor. i have found gina has to be a person of great character she has worked in some of the most dangerous corners of our world and i have the utmost respect for the sucker forces she has made for our country i look forward to working with gina hospital now joe manchin is from west virginia that's a state full of conservative minded appellations while opposing war and torture might when the democrats friends up in new england in red states among conservative minded americans these hardline pentagon policies are crowd pleasers not scandals now remember the resistance the folks protesting donald trump at every turn and taking the leadership from hillary clinton well those folks agree with donald trump on very few things but among them is bombing syria i really believe that we should have and still should. take out his airfields and prevent him from being
9:17 am
able to use them to have bought innocent people and try carrying gas on them even c.n.n. the network donald trump is accused of fake news is with him when he's on the warpath remember when missiles were flying into syria voices that usually oppose donald trump simply luden on donald trump ordered a missile strike against the assad regime in syria i support president use of american military power this week they even talked up the military equipment we are refueling the saudi bombers that are dropping the bombs it is said that thousands of civilians have died in yemen because of this you know there's a lot of jobs at stake certainly if a lot of these defense contractors stop selling warplanes other sophisticated equipment to saudi arabia they're going to there's going to be a significant loss of jobs or revenue here in the united states when the media and politicians are telling americans that war is good for business don't be too surprised if you see us public support for war let's recall how the media pushed
9:18 am
the americans to support the invasion of iraq and most of them went along with it we expect every america. going to support our military and if they can't do that to shut up our duty as loyal americans to shut off once the fighting begins trump campaign with antiwar talking points but the polls show that his hawkish turn hasn't really hurt him among the public there seems to be a lot of americans who are tired of war but there's a pretty solid core of folks who believe the cruise missiles keep them safe and that america first should refer to military strength and r.t. new york thanks with a softening still ahead for you this hour u.s. democrats meanwhile claim there is massive new evidence of russian interference in the twenty six thousand presidential election will go through the allegations just tough to crack.
9:19 am
most people think just stand out in this business you need to be the first one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest street in truth to stand down the news business you just need as the right questions and the right answers. questions.
9:20 am
oh again there us democrat lawmakers have released thousands of social media ads with alleged links to russia in a bid to explain how the kremlin was supposedly seeking to sow discord in america during the twenty sixteen presidential election. a critical eye on the commercials . here it is the panacea to all your doubts russian meddling exposed three thousand five hundred and nineteen ads on facebook posted by russia allegedly say us democrats the russian social media campaign was designed to further the broader criminal ject of sowing discord in the u.s. by inflaming passions on a range of divisive issues the point
9:21 am
a visa as they say was to divide americans but you take a closer look and the real takeaway is russia really really sucks meddling take this ad for the african-american civil rights movement zero clicks zero impressions meaning no one ever saw it real poor interfering right there but next now here is a surprise a blue lives matter post black versus blue sea by a grand total of no one all right. so far but how about this one an ad for muslims it says we believe in individual liberty in the free market take heart liberty will prevail the catch is it appears as if posted by a group defending the second amendment the right to bear arms and there are literally hundreds of such groups and facebook alone ok ok let's think something
9:22 am
truly divisive to meek across a black doctor felt humiliated when don't the airlines flight attendants refused to believe that she was a qualified physician now that's allegedly intended to stir up tensions to tear americans apart except that's exactly how it was reported in the us media is responding to a viral facebook post from an african-american doctor who says she was discriminated against a fight she. says when the flight attendant yelled for a physician on board she raised her hand but was rejected you know how much the russian spent in this one hundred thousand dollars huge sum right it's roughly zero point zero zero zero one percent of what trump spent for his campaign so what's the takeaway russia is really bad at meddling some of those
9:23 am
ads were never seen by anyone and others were copy pasted from mainstream media and that's if you believe that these were russian ads the only thing viz ads prove is russia will never ever be as good as us media a dividing america. has the affair now tackling the opioid epidemic has become a top priority for the trumpet ministration with overdose deaths rising sharply in recent years part of the plan is to cut back on prescriptions for the drug use america expects. a crisis in the u.s. it's reached the point where the drug enforcement administration itself says it should be doing a better job the united states continues to be affected by a national opioid epidemic which has been spurred in part by the rise of opioid prescribing and misuse the da can and must do better let's quickly break it down in
9:24 am
a span of seventeen years two hundred thousand people have died as a result of overdose deaths involving opioids increase four times from ninety nine to twenty sixteen and the da blames doctors indiscriminate prescribing can endanger patients' lives doctors take an oath to do no harm and provide the best care for their patients but is it fair to pin the blame on doctors when it's the d n a it felt that breakfasters individuals and companies to sell controlled substances and guess what. their funding is dependent on the da must set face at a level that ensures the recovery of the full costs of operating the various aspects of the diversion control program in two thousand and seventeen the da claimed that it issued one point seven million licenses around five hundred thousand more since two thousand and eight a pharmacist who prescribe drugs to almost all of his clients is now serving jail time for ground zero as west virginia where doctors write
9:25 am
a hundred and thirty eight prescriptions for every one hundred people did you write three hundred twenty five prescriptions the first week of january for more than one nine hundred thousand oxy code on pills. possibly you don't know how many prescriptions you wrote i don't i don't and they may well be he's still behind bars but his license was never revoked it just expired well a da report showed that criminals are often allowed to continue practicing medicine even after doing their time in one instance a doctor who was selling prescriptions for controlled substances to undercover police was sentenced to five years supervised probation but never lost his license if that's not shady enough the agency issued licenses to individuals that have a history of drug abuse and trafficking. even well intentioned compassionate physicians have gotten caught up in the problem of overprescribing i think the da does bear responsibility primarily in that their job was really to
9:26 am
police whether or not opioids were being indiscriminately prescribed dispensed and even transported to these very small towns and they didn't do their job in that regard but why is it that licenses are rarely revoked while the acting head of the d.a. believes the system is to blame we have done a lot of civil fines but when you look at major businesses find seem to have little impact and i think that's part of the frustration i think the key to it is as we're states either don't have the ability to connect with each other or the system that actually aren't being used as is highly problematic and the way the system works means we're only seeing the tiniest fraction of licenses for both for talking your zero point zero one four percent out of one point seven million licenses so one of the things that we are now recommending is that before the v.a. grants a license to
9:27 am
a physician there should be required education of that physician should have in order to get the da license in the first place what would be much more important is training physicians in how to safely prescribe opioids in the first place and once they have prescribed opioids how to monitor patients so that they can see whether or not that patient is becoming addicted misusing the opioid or diverting it to other sources. so mary kom reporting there is just coming up to half past four in the afternoon here moscow will have. in just over half a. point
9:28 am
. milton's i would say i'm not american but americans helped out really. world war two cures for depression far united states is concerned prosperity of course the store. for the for us the whole world what it what and. historical rewrite ever since world war two to foment the cold war against russia against communism and. socialists nish bush if you are so you call me out you all close just right so use could call them. all i think world war two has been
9:29 am
distorted credibly by the anglo-american media and that's because they want to diminish the role of russia. and stalin who actually defeated hitler. when lawmakers manufacture common sense a student of public wealth. when the ruling class is project over. themselves. with the famous merry go round. we can all middle of the room sit. room. there are a lot of assumptions and current. determines these based on.
9:30 am
historically actually he's proven wrong know. many accidents. many judgments almost lead to show nuclear war. hello and welcome to cross talk for all things are considered i'm peter lavelle donald trump claims he is the master of the deal but when it comes to iran it is the art of no deal the reason is the american president withdrew from the nuclear deal to range from alliance and distant from ation to outright political propaganda trying to claim.
