a t.v. executive in the. debate with his. on the program. if the start. screaming yelling be offended about everything what's being called complaining is actually is actually political discourse you should i don't know what the fill in the brain be put in jail i just calling for. that plus a new study alleges that a russian. division. in the u.k. in the wake of terror attacks in twenty seventeen. very warm welcomes you from all of us here at aussie international in moscow it's just off one pm on saturday we have your top stories. iran's supreme leader the
ayatollah ali khamenei has issued a statement saying the new u.s. sanctions will not achieve their goal of weakening the iranian economy he claims washington's past punitive measures made the islamic republic more self-sufficient this comes after the trumpet ministration announced the renewal of all sanctions against iran that was lifted as part of the twenty fifteen nuclear deal the sanctions are slated to come into effect on monday a correspondent takes a closer look. picture that trump tweeted after the statement on sanctions says it all really iran is entering a world of trouble in the mind of the us president so what will happen on monday everything that was achieved under the twenty fifteen iran nuclear deal will be no more piling on top of penalties imposed additionally by the trumpet ministration there were nineteen rounds of those these new sanctions will accelerate the highly successful effects of our sanctions that have already occurred the maximum pressure
we impose is cause the reality to drop dramatically ronnie's cabin is in disarray and the iranian people are raising their voices even louder against a corrupt and hypocritical regime a lot of diplomatic achievement has been torn down by this back in twenty fifteen the so-called p five plus one bloc of countries agreed to open global oil markets for iran's crude in exchange for to iran scrapping its nuclear program even though iran complied with all terms of the deal trump called a disastrous and pulled out unilaterally now with the final push the american leader has delivered while iran keeps abiding by all the demands of the twenty fifteen deal makes while still an edgy shipping finance banking you name it really the u.s. hopes to put a damper on all keys sectors of iran's economy in total more than seven hundred entities including both individuals companies and even ships and their craft will
be banned from doing any business with iran bro if you exemptions here and there like food or from a suitable industries but the list is not very long to be frank speaking of exemptions by the way the u.s. also seemed very concerned with the economic well being of its allies we want to achieve maximum pressure but we don't want to harm friends and allies you might assume bolton is talking about europe after all it likes to think of itself as america's biggest ally but apparently there's. just not the case and trump's advisor there was referring to asian and middle eastern countries we do know that the total of eight states will be exempt from having to cut their businesses their business ties with iran and reportedly there's not a single european country on that list instead it's allegedly india iraq and other nations from those parts of the world another concern washington wants to allay a collapse of oil markets amid fears that prices will just skyrocket if iran's oil
pipe runs dry iran's oil exports have already fallen by some eight hundred thousand barrels per day while america has enjoyed a comparable increase in its crude exports so according to the u.s. not to worry they're happy to fill in the gap putting out additional oil there and exchange for an extra buck unlike the u.s. the european union says it will continue to hold the twenty fifteen iran nuclear deal brussels has vowed to support european companies doing business with iran and ensure that financial flows remain uninterrupted. we remain committed to implementing the joint comprehensive plan of action as a matter of respecting international agreements and of our shared international security and expect iran to play a constructive role in this regard i don't agree with those who say that the americans are have it we're having trouble telling our allies what to do i see no evidence of that so far they complain but then do what they're told we have
a saying here in america talk is cheap they complain but in the end of they do what they're told i hope it is different this time i hope they look at these actions and say that their own security may be at stake and they need to summon the courage and the independents to look out for their own interests and not simply submit to the dictates of washington former u.s. diplomat jim trust speaking just for the u.s. secretary of state meantime mike pompei o claims the sanctions are prompting the iranian people to rise up against their government so we went to the streets of tehran to learn more. time about manson's a hard to come by because of sanctions no doubt if you are caring for a patient your life is affected by these sanctions sanctions decrease the quality of life a speech will cannot know octane things they used to pertain easily to forms but i thought it was right i'm a merchant and i century cannot trade with businesses outside of iran any more it
would take its toll and we have yet to see to what extent that affect ordinary people and merchants i mean hacking every year or every two to three years they say new sanctions will be imposed so people have gotten used to sanctions but that doesn't mean we accept them and it doesn't hurt it means we've had them so long they don't affect us anymore they harm the way in nation they have always been there for the past four decades and they've been harming the e.u. reigning nation all along their inquisition that's why many other. states that are on the sanctions like russia like any of theirs they are all against this move especially because this new round of sanctions by washington it doesn't have the u.n. support it doesn't have the support of even the united states close allies like the europeans that have stated their opposition in defiance china turkey or russia and many others have defied the u.s.
sanctions against iran and many are worried in washington that this could make these sharp tool or weapon blunts and make you know take it off the menu even for future u.s. administrations if it goes ineffective. it's not just iran feeling the pressure from u.s. restrictions america's national security adviser has announced fresh against cuba and venezuela john bolton said the two latin american states along with nicaragua constitute a troika of tyranny but as aussies morag as the of reports that struck blind is just the latest in a time honored tradition of catchy phrases designed to turn up the heat. the u.s. government loves catch phrases short catchy and even easier to push through the press and to give them credit they aren't half bad reaganomics a bomb a cat a war on drugs the war on christmas alternative facts and this this huge shit and
this new one is maybe even better this troika of tyranny this triangle of chair stretching from havana to caracas to managua is the cause of immense human suffering so here is the to run make triple coober nicaragua venezuela all three left leaning socialist states with anti american sentiment what a surprise by the way i reworded troika of tyranny into to radek triple so if i hear the state department stealing my phrase is going to be trouble but one hundred topic washington has a history of packaging nations into bite size so lurkers who can forget the axis of evil states like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil arming to threaten the peace of the world back then the bad guys were iran iraq and
north korea and the term was so good that marketing genius john bolton made a sequel that same year beyond the axis of evil there are other rogue states intent on acquiring weapons of mass destruction particularly biological weapons that included libya syria and cuba again congratulations cuba for making it both into the axis of evil and the troika of tyranny lots to look forward to more sanctions invasion maybe there are still spots open in the fall faction the villainess few and the atrocious assembly hugo of anna well they all have sort of socialist government stayed ours. hugh the us line in latin america but this is still a stretch i mean they're not they're all poor countries relative to the united states and even they were scheming in some sort of an alliance but it's nothing that would threaten the united states f.y.r.
the original axis of evil and beyond the axis of evil nominees were libya syria and iraq and all were either invaded by the us or torn apart and civil war with american troops coming in later but that's by the by what i can tell you is it isn't easy to come up with and market these little slogans for everyone you don't like which is why they have a generic term as a placeholder regimes the syrian regime aside and putin regimes kim jong un is terror regime the regime of nicolas maduro iran's regime so china russia iran and others regimes and everyone else that doesn't do is the us says on the other hand saudi arabia and duress and other family iran and the prizes a government's government atari's governments saudi arabia and the u.a.e. their governments government under as government of qatar i mean nothing personal
it's just politics you do is the us asks and you're good and you get a clean slate and a blind eye to whatever shenanigans you're up to but if you don't you're in trouble mr west case he had saddled with a dumb nickname conjured up by a board with access to a thesaurus and too much free time and even worse case scenario invaded in case you were a nomination it sure to look up for any parachuting us troops primarily to these regimes as evil but it's really it's a real problem we demonize other countries because then pressure. builds well why aren't you doing something about it and so i mean we go down this road you could possibly have some military action against one or more of these countries simply because the rhetoric gets inflamed when you put labels on you know clever marketing
way balls to one countries together let's just lump all the you've all in the world in one slogan and that's again what we're doing i think they're taking the pattern of the george w. bush administration. and using it again. for the u.s. midterm elections now just around the corner everyone is seemingly braced for russian trolling after all the alleged interference in the twenty sixteen presidential vote u.s. intelligence on the media are convinced moscow's at it again his party boycott without latest episode of in case you missed it and a special guy to spotting russian meddlers in the. the u.s. midterms are almost a year and in case you missed it it's highly likely you've been interfered with by a russian. these u.s. midterms are being described as the most important since the last one and russian
into barons has been mentioned so often that some americans think it's the main account today there will be so naive voted who don't believe that russia's influence their vote the media and politicians in need of support or an excuse they definitely have and if you come across them. russian influence can be subliminal to underestimate how susceptible you are. so you can make sure that you don't victim here's what i see why my panties guide on how to stop the russian influence campaign only if you are russian any russian you've been tampered with it's pointless to even vote saying the search all media is the main battleground of russian influence for example if your attention is captured by a bright and mildly funny online video about politics presented by a girl with from toxic half always find out who is signing the paychecks.
attention to detail if she does that anything possibly by russians. i cannot stress this enough the influence can be subliminal voting republican will make you more attractive expert speculation suggests that russian interference on twitter that is actually really easy to spot if you come across extreme views questionable means old badly thought out opinions there probably from some between twenty fifteen and twenty seventeen an overwhelming one in the culture of every twenty three thousand pieces of content it's just a place to ask such a thing exists a russian troll bomb this is why vigilance is key. i know. there are role models who can help to show the way like hillary clinton she can't find russian interference in the slightest i also might leave we will only know how much russian interference says once the results are announced if the democrats do well then
russia had no influence whatsoever but if the republicans do well well then break out the board basically living in the united states of russia so as you prepare to vote in the more. they. want to get them quite a presidential tweeted. us elections on all apparently within reach of the kremlin's long digital new research claims that russian hackers have been whipping up religious strife in britain where there was a spike in and see islamic tweets at around the time of two terror attacks and twenty seventeen the saudis says the u.k. was caught up in a russian operations against the us although it also notes that the number of tweets allegedly made by russia was relatively speaking quite low with total of eighty three thousand which is a fraction of the five hundred million tweets posted on twitter each and every day
the report was unable to state with certainty exactly how many troll accounts were active or how representative they were so truly is. according to the study to come a flash the covert operation russian trolls would begin by tweeting about fitness and exercise when opening new accounts stephen morris from the english democrats party believes the timing of the studies release is no accident. we know i can greater manchester the police ignored a hundred twenty seven warnings of islamic grooming gangs in rochdale with the local authorities all the churches do it is highlighting what's been going on the biggest problem we've got is the mainstream media ignore when these problems and they're the ones causing the issues against islam at the moment because if you ignore the problem you can address it trying to find some form of enemy some form of blame in the trying to brainwash and chose the other thing is it's also the same
time the same day that the police are doing an investigation into the anti semitic views comments made by the labor party and if you look at the mainstream media the other small bit about the labor party being investigated semitism on the side but the main article was about choice well actually the more people in this country would be concerned about anti-semitism in the labor for. us t.v. personality oprah winfrey has debunked rumors that she was going to run for the presidency and twenty twenty other celebrities though might still go after the top job at the white house. this is what i'm here to tell you that this was made for you.
you've said though that if you did run for president you believe you'd win. but i don't know i think that when i tell you i would go into lives. i don't want to run. a lot of people want to see a different leadership today or i'm sorry that's different but a better leadership today seriously would you run i would i'm seriously considering like you i.
why don't you run for president donald trump that way everyone will have everything i ran for president i would be. down i would. still to come on the program here i know it's a palestinian women smuggling out of israeli prisons were the details and i. what politicians do. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. for something i want to press. you to go right to the press this is like a three of them all can't be good. interested in the waters of the.
ship. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. and spearing dramatic development only i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. is that a program here on c. just scary these days they can also cause offense on t.v. executives in the u.k. who sparked outrage after dressing up as the murder of saudi journalist.
just sickening insensitivity and indifference to the murder of jamal khashoggi it's a just see on fit for your job with i.t.v. his a public figure and has shone upon it but taste and insensitivity in does the head of commissioning for comedy and entertainment still have a job unbelievably crass and stupid behavior. when i t.v. editor i see fit to bury showed up at a celebrity party in london wearing a bloody white coat in a headscarf in addition he carried a plastic severed hand turkey accuses a saudi hit squad of murdering the journalist at the saudi consulate a month ago in a case that has triggered international outrage that means i missed a c if somebody says he regrets his choice of costume. i'm a private individual who attended a private party i realized my how do you manage it some people which are apologize also way by munich football i made a similar apology off the dressing up was
a suicide bomber. right there in the bottom right of the picture showed up to a team party on wednesday and his well in some traditional arab robe and dog glosses carrying a box with the word danger a brazilian defender later tweeted that he didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings we had a because some of contrasting views on the story from our guests. i just choose to be offended by actual actions by things that actually matter things that actually do hurt people where there's real violence or real threat in a political environment like the one that we have no that is very violent characterized by tragedies by violence by racism xenophobia and what we are seeing in this outrage is that people find it unacceptable and are demanding a higher standard for how we should come together and represent ourselves as a culture i don't see the hate in all the more video that your other guest happens to see and i'm not saying that it doesn't exist out there in pockets certainly it
doesn't certainly we should fight that but let's do it effectively and not worry about how people dress up we have to understand that politics comes in a range of forms it comes in elections and voting obviously comes in through the economy and who holds power of service to sions and it certainly comes in the culture as well what are you going to do are you going to pass a law that bans hollowing if you offend someone you should i don't know what what fill in the brain blank be put in jail i just calling for this in place calling for sleeping fat no i don't know but i'm asking you what should i know but it's all in front of me and lois culture plays a tremendous role in shaping the ideologies the believes and the actions that play out politically on more formal concrete ways will want to be offended and spend their time that way that's fine i see identity politics as something that is has grossly divided us the problem with public policy is we can scream and yell and be
offended about everything what's being called complaining is actually is actually a political discourse and political practice you know and that's what we're doing and i'm not saying that it should never be mentioned if someone wears something that you know is hurtful or insensitive i think that we've taken it a bit too far in some cases. over five thousand published. years of currently imprisoned in israel with more than five hundred life sentences for terror related offenses they often forbidden from having any kind of physical contact with their family and this has led to the wives of some prison is concerned about that bloodline to resort to rather radical methods. and i congratulate her family owns and love of his son i hope to cut all prisoners
filtering. scrutiny in the israeli prisons of the most secure in the world the palestinian prisoners are still able to toss the sperm to their wife by a president or newly released inmate but then the wife's go to idea for the board she's with the sperm. it seems form. it's hard to believe it could happen because of the tight security measures being taken during the security prisoners meetings with their relatives and in general. there's this. element in the zero hour in just prisoners they have. to.
leave. and that is this i was program here when r.t. international for. more stories to be coming away in half an hour my colleague andrew manning to help if you can join us. in terms of blasphemy i mean blasphemy has never actually been used to nobody has been prosecuted but you are right it was only renewed ten years ago by a previous government and it really shows how out of step the political establishment has been there's been a huge movement of women and young people on dave being pushing the political
establishment you know relentlessly on the issue of the abortion rights because ten women a day leave the country and five others were taking abortion pills online illegally . and there's now a building around for a future in rwanda and no one says terrorist. but memories. twenty four years ago this country saw a real end of the world. after the genocide there i'm old women and no wonder the man. fell to women to fix what the men had broken.
join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and obviously going to get us out of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. i am sure this is the kaiser report yeah we're still on the road doing a gonzo american pilgrimage leading up to the big midterm elections america so i'm going to nervous breakdown and we want to capture every nuance and particularity of it you know stacey in a previous show i mentioned that we passed a dead horse on the highway i think was leading him to use somebody we went back to see what happened to the horse horse was gone except for this one horse shoe so this is the only thing left of that dead horse we found on the highway being. i
think horseshoes are supposed to be lucky enough for that horse so for thirteen one episode thirteen no one actually we saw the dead horse we did see a dead horse right outside of flagstaff where we are sitting right now flagstaff is of course old cowboy country and we're here and it's having a great time on our gonzo journey but i want to know a few things that we saw all along the way in particularly in san francisco where we know about this homelessness crisis and it's a horrific one but the un has just declared this like inhumane and cruel. the most progressive city in america and yet it's extremely cruel towards a large percentage of its population they in fact the u.n. said that san francisco cuts these people off from their water and other services basic human services you know it reminds me of a comment we made a while ago we're talking about the the below.
