used to be. taken off the plane the. passengers on a flight from london to help. the n.b.c. . president try to make him look like. polarizing the media so. i feel like. we have to be open to listening to different countries different different people's interests. maybe. it's always going to be people living in different universes. so. he's been given
2:01 am
instructions on how to behave online. by the ecuadorian embassy. here in moscow on the sixty welcome to the program. passengers on a flight from london to have stood up for a man who was being deported. the man was apparently shouting and crying resisting the deportation when fellow passengers decided to intervene however. explains there was an ugly twist to this story take him off the plane. they can't. take him off the plane this is the moment that passengers on a flight to stood up being forcibly removed from the u k. home office
2:02 am
was attempting to deport you could be ahmed back to his home country of somalia which he'd left when he was reportedly a young boy. for the letter of the buyer. but his screams alerted the other passengers on board to the fact that he was being made to leave the country against his will so fellow passengers leapt to his defense he says the rallies and what was it was forget exactly what it was just got it was short because it was minutes later home office officials scored off the plane and back to u.k. jurisdiction. it's now been revealed the passengers helped to keep in the country is a convicted gang rapist in august two thousand and seven he brutally assaulted a sixteen year old girl along with three other men in
2:03 am
a premeditated attack he was sentenced to nine years in prison and he was released after four one of his fellow gang members has since traveled to syria and died fighting with islamic state terrorists the passengers on the plane are unlikely to have known ahmed's dangerous criminal history and the loss of security was never. good to see it was going to lead to a room that was very little now thanks to their intervention you have had is thought to be back in a u.k. detention center while government officials tried to place him on another flight his lawyers now have time to appeal the decision to deport him the u.k. isn't alone when it comes to citizens disrupting government approved deportations earlier this year in sweden a student activist refused to take us seat on a plane until assailed us. seeker who is being sent back to afghanistan was taken
2:04 am
off the flight and she live streamed the entire incident. i don't know where it's. going to get killed it was later reported the man had been sentenced for assault the u.k. home office says that all foreign nationals who were sentenced for a crime and abuse the u.k.'s hospitality should be in no doubt of the government's determination to remove them but the government may not have banked on citizen activists being just as determined to let him stay. we spoke with former chief executive of the u.k.'s immigration advisory service keith best he believes that cases like this one should not be decided by the public but rather by the courts and i think this example shows how wrong people can be although they may have sympathy for somebody particularly if they're being manhandled in a rather aggressive manner to get them on an aircraft in order to deport them i can
2:05 am
understand where people sympathy might lie but of course as we've discovered with this case those sympathies may be very misplaced storage is want to use that line for deportation cases then they have to do a balancing act between complying with the legal regulations or look at existing human rights safeguards and to make sure that they are fully articulated in favor of somebody who might otherwise be removed wrongly. u.s. news network n.b.c. is under fire after showing remarks by president donald trump on the american civil war out of context making him look like he was praising a pro-slavery confederate general the ultimate corrected its report only two days later articulate mop and looks at how the us media is becoming ever more polarized
2:06 am
. in the liberal side of american media donald trump was in hot water they had him on video praising robert e. lee the pro-slavery confederate general during the us civil war they even had video evidence for their claim of obvious racism it also gave you. a general. who was incredible he drank a little bit too much. you know what i'm talking about. so robert e. lee was a great general. but it turns out that n.b.c. misrepresented the comment the general the trump called incredible was actually ulysses s. grant the general of the union army now grant was anything but a racist in fact after he became president he even sent troops to fight the ku klux klan years after the civil war was over and b.c. had to run a retraction and show the full soundbite a general. who was incredible he drank a little bit too much. and his name was green general.
2:07 am
i am to drum faction smelled blood and went into overdrive they ran all kinds of headlines about trump praising the confederate general even said he was a big fan of general lee they even quoted distant descendants of lee denouncing the president and yet again our president is lying and showing us his true colors he is showing us that he supports an idol of white supremacy and the hatred robert. for the continued in. our bodies but the pro trump crowd was watching a completely different movie the news in right field was that trump was innocent victimized by scheming liberals so folks in the anti trump camp got confirmation that the donald is a racist meanwhile those in the pro trump bubble got confirmation that the liberal press is out to slander him and that's just one example of how americans seem to live almost in two different realities with loyal audiences getting sucked in by
2:08 am
different narratives they lie in bed at night trying to decide if the temp of ministration is more sinister are more incompetent well let me relieve you of your burden. next time you can see that it's both incompetent and cynicism i think it's fair for black americans to say you know what i could consider the trump agenda made in america make america great again so we're here in liberal new york city and we're going to see if average new yorkers have even heard some of the headlines that are all the rage among conservatives. did you hear about the controversy regarding their the movie about the moon landing and donald trump didn't know but they've done one controversy i haven't heard about no no i haven't . did you hear about trump praising robert e. lee. yeah it really is i think i have yes i heard. do
2:09 am
you feel like americans are divided and that like those who listen to protract media hear one side of the story and those who hear. stuff hear another side part of your question i definitely feel like the country is divided by believe the triumph i was follow incorrect maybe fake is. but i don't i'm not a term follower i believe the media i do feel like it's divided we have to be open to listening to different countries different different peoples interests as long as there is a divide between. ethnicities and cultures in no line of a space between nice of them there's always going to be a divide in there is always going to be people living in different universes to some donald trump is a heroic champion making american great again to others he's a power mad fascist inciting bigotry no matter what you think of donald trump it's pretty obvious that americans are more deeply polarized than ever before and warring media narratives are deepening that division caleb mop and r.t.
2:10 am
new york donald trump has branded n.b.c.'s coverage as dishonest claiming of the channel deliberately tried to make him look bad we discussed the situation with investigative journalist max blumenthal who says americans are being left on the why is a by the news coverage point worth making about fox and m s n b c is that their formula is to cover a very narrow range of topics so if you watch these networks you probably aren't going to know much about what's happening outside of american horse race politics so no matter which network you're watching you are going to wind up less informed unless you're completely concerned with the different policy intrigues going on in washington that's why a lot of americans are turned. to alternative media as well as foreign media and why foreign media is under threat in the us why this network for
2:11 am
example has been forced to register as a foreign agent pretty apparent but the national security state in the u.s. doesn't want to merican to be particularly well informed about foreign policy and what's happening on the ground in yemen or in palestine or latin america. ecuador has agreed to partially restore internet access for wiki leaks founder julian assange through has been denied since march however he's been given some guidelines on how to act online though ecuador wants us to also be on his best behavior offline and to keep the place tidy.
2:12 am
for more on the story his correspondent. sources close to jude in a son told me that the ecuadorian embassy imposed a new protocol consisting of a ten page memo which covers the day to day aspects of. his life inside the ecuadorian embassy in regulating get rid of the they cover things like how his visit managed in any visitors who wish to go and see the former editor of wiki leaks will have to make an official inquiry via email and also how he communicates with the walls we know that six months ago his internet access was cut off it will now be reestablished pop. partially and also things like his medical treatment how he's treated medically that will be covered within the framework of that memo
2:13 am
and also it prohibits him from doing or saying anything which is deemed as interfering in the internal affairs of other countries and of course six months ago when his into that access was caught it was a result of the various statements he was making with regard to the independence referendum in catalonia and as a result of that of course having his internet access cut off they've now prohibited him from making any statements that are considered to be political meddling now in september mr sound was forced to resign as editor of wiki leaks he was replaced by kristinn hrafnsson an investigative journalist from iceland and wiki leaks releasing a statement saying that it was due to the extraordinary circumstances that he had been placed within the ecuadorian embassy which is why he had been made to stand down now of course it remains to be seen exactly how this sets of rules impacts mr sanders life inside the embassy and also remains to be seen exactly when he will

finally be able to leave the embassy. a canadian transgender athlete is facing a backlash after winning the cycling world championship rachel mckinnon who was born male finished first in the race in los angeles this sunday becoming the first of a transgender woman to win gold in the competition but her achievement was met not only with applause unfair advantage and not to be celebrated look at the difference in size and muscle mass of course you were going to win imagine being the woman who came forth knowing that you should have a place on the podium. amazing i was so infused at reading this i went out and challenged two eight year olds to a one hundred meter race guess what i only went and won first time running in an eight year old's race to. there were no denies the accusations saying she was
2:15 am
forced to suppress her testosterone level in accordance with the competition rules on transgender athletes so we invited some guests for a debate what i find strange is the hue and cry being raised over transgender athletes but not over other athletes who clearly have certain advantages over fellow competitors i think the way in which transgender athletes are being singled out is very very unfair and wrong now of course we do need to look at whether transgender athletes do have an advantage which is unfair and gives them an advantage over others but i don't think the research really substantiate that at the moment if the male athletes themselves fear feel that there are some particular disadvantage in competing somebody who's gender has been. in some cases changed you know there have been cases in the past in the most celebrated. american tennis player really richards who i was
2:16 am
a man was a useful player. and then our underwent transgender. and competed as a woman and reached the following all of the double this of the u.s. open tennis championships you know one of the four grand slams one of the most important in the world as a singles player ended up growing at twentieth and this was at the age of forty four when she reached that level and you would look at that cage some say well how would it really richards as a man ever been able to reach those sorts of heights as a man and that is of course extremely doubtful there are all kinds of advantages that athletes have for sprinters having fast twitch. muscle fibers definitely gives you an advantage it isn't just this issue it's
2:17 am
a whole range of issues about where genetic and other bother factors may give a particular athlete the edge over others i certainly think there should be as far as trying to gender it intersects situations. going further than a man i think would be an enormous task. proportion hopefully there would be some kind of consensus and we could establish a regime for all sports where. the athletes who are transgender and intersex but also those who have other special unique physical attributes or biological genetic got tributes they could be included still to come on the program here on r.t. dozens of palestinians injured by israeli rubber bullets and tear gas during a west bank protest protest against the shutting down of a school or more and that just.
2:18 am
join me every. time i'm sure i'll be speaking to the pics. i'm sure. i'll see you then. obama codified the worst honesty's of wall street institutionalized a kleptocracy join a blind eye to the excesses of the really don't democrats on on on financed in america who are with impunity and so this is draining the swamp unfortunately i must say that it does mean that interest rates are going to start going higher and this is for the first time in thirty two years the bond market bull rally we've had
2:19 am
for thirty years or longer this looks like it's coming to an end and that is a fundamental shift huge change in the economy for the world and for the united states going forward so that will be the big story of the next twenty four months. twenty twenty past the hour right now here in moscow dozens of palestinians were injured after the israeli army fired rubber bullets on tear gas to students and officials who were protesting the closure of a palestinian school that served two villages in the west bank the closure means five hundred children will no longer receive an education.
2:20 am
but other members of the israeli army is foreign. children just because palestinian students come here to learn you. patient authorities do not see even the right to education. that we knew we brought our children to school because we want them to study just like other kids will in the world the decision to close the school violates their rights to education and we reject. the israeli army says the reason for the school closure is that some of the students have been throwing stones from the school claiming that the facility had produced acts of terror the i.d.f. has now declared the school a closed military zone meantime aid agencies warn that there are at least sixty one
2:21 am
schools in the west bank that are under threat of demolition from israel they see it as a violation of children's basic rights to an education and the editor of the news website palestine chronicle that ramsi borrowed says the demolitions are actually a pretext for seizing more territory for illegal israeli settlements. the need land and the need the land of the need there are other villages and this is why the targeting of these of these areas so basically it usually starts with the confiscation of palestinian land then the targeting of any even the city and who does protests then declaring more and more palestinian lands to be closed off military military zone and even sure these closed off areas are joined by or are added to the jewish settlements that are in constant expansion this is a story that's really goes to the heart of israel even couldn't
2:22 am
a solution of the west bank this is about building settlements and of course that would point every article of pretense in order for them to put the blame on the palestinians who are fighting for the right and there are five or they're either. the mayor of a small french town on an island off the country's atlantic coast whose waging war on fast food giant mcdonald's were choked a weapon a project with a mounting cost in legal fees of his anti big campaign already into its fourth year is certainly dividing the locals. we were elected because we ran on a platform of ecological and social transition the model practiced by this kind of company runs counter to that we do not until it's the model.
2:23 am
to go the big fake next big thing to take on the big defeat the fact. that people can eat whatever they want to charge but we were elected on this problem so we have an alternative to this more than. it's just so i think on the island such as always we should instead encourage french businesses there is another way to create jobs if you think about the quality well we all know mcdonald's well. there is this kind of ecological extremism flameouts today mcdonald's means creating more jobs reviving the town. i

a spinning but what happens when the politics gets in the way of the money even worse when the money gets in the way of the politics if you would like the real world example of these two problems i just mentioned may i present to you the united states of america today is led by president donald trump and our two gangs of the beltway the republican and democrat neo liberal con parties. the stock market as we know is taking a savage beating lately highlighted by last week's midweek selloff that saw the dow jones and dow jones industrial average drop over thirteen hundred points in this latest low comes just a week or so after the market posted record highs on october third and while the stock market continues its also inducing rollercoaster in steps u.s. president donald trump to offer us is reassuring words telling reporters. i. got. out you see trump is blaming the u.s.
2:29 am
federal reserve for the up and down stock market due to its recent decision to raise interest rates moving from quantitative easing do quantitative tightening trump breaks new ground with this criticism becoming one of the first sitting presidents in the modern era to actually criticize the decision making of the federal reserve. but tragically not for the right reasons sorry ron paul in the fed fans trump was criticizing the fed because as rolling stone matt taibbi eloquently writes he doesn't want to have to pay interest on the giant sums he will inevitably have to borrow to papers idiotic tax cuts. remember when i mentioned that bit about politics and money earlier well when standing at the crossroads of money in politics my friends it's best to wear your waiter's and open your umbrella because the lives will be falling in the b.s. rising until you start watching the hawks.
