1:03 pm
they loathe his government for corruption for all kinds of cheating at the election . but enough that one of the nation's not just poor it's starving. people in the country running. everything that the massive population. considers to be like a bit of polling trivia from the poorest country in the caribbean the last presidential election had to be rerun after claims of fraud but the follow up which put president movies in power wasn't exactly a model of democracy the turnout was only a fifth every tenth ballot sheet was never counted for different reasons and some cases that would be more than enough to settle. what i call the legitimacy radar
1:04 pm
alarm in washington not this time trump sent his people to congratulate the new leader his diplomat said they were proud of haiti the haitian people deserve to have democratically elected leaders today's inauguration of a democratically elected president and allows haiti to return to democratic and constitutional rule so what do you do with that kind of rapprochement show that you're a big fan of the man in charge there president trump and i own two printers when all the launch produce ones is results and therefore i hope we'll put everything in place to make sure we deliver for our peoples but could such words of warmth ever end up turning into something like this how. venison. not true. venison the drum government is not going to side with the haitian people because they need the haitian government for its project of overthrowing the
1:05 pm
venezuelan government so back to news from haiti several days of protests put the capital on the brink of chaos a furious haitians are on the edge a group of you when powers including america came up with the communique i.e. condemnation of the escalating violence they want the president to speed up reforms well the only thing that came out of the state department in four days was this travel security alert haiti security alert the security situation remains very unstable if you hear gunfire or protest groups seek shelter inside your house immediately and stay away from the windows and no one's yet taking a substitute for the elected leader but of course this relative silence isn't simply about someone saying nice things about donald trump this is the nature of we can say american power in the world today it is filled with hypocrisy in haiti it is the vast majority of the population which is turning out to demand
1:06 pm
a job no mo uses a departure and yet not a word from mike pence not a word from pump a oh the secretary of state not a word from donald trump so this double standard this hypocrisy is typical we can say u.s. foreign policy and venezuela neighbors on the map but it looks like they're nowhere near each other in the minds of those gurus of real democracy. syria is demanding action from the u.n. security council through accusing the u.s. led coalition of killing sixteen civilians and injuring schools more in a bombing attack on the border. iraq and these are pictures of the aftermath of the incident filmed by a video agency ruptly you see smoke on the horizon and apparently that was the result of the air strike damascus has demanded an investigation. on living fabric twenty nineteen the u.s. led coalition committed
1:07 pm
a new crime against innocent syrian civilians is we're playing targeted a civilian camp in the village of who's in the countryside of the governorates of beer is sought sixteen civilians including seven children were killed and seventy civilians most of them women and children were injured syria again calls on the un security council to stand up against these crimes and attacks and to shoulder its responsibilities in the maintenance of international peace and security. attack was launched on the last ice a locket by dental eva in eastern syria or india or province the u.s. led coalition is supporting attempts by the rebel syrian democratic forces to seize that area there are reports that despite the fact hundreds of civilians have fled the territory many are still trapped inside. me quite as you can lucian killed a lot of fun and they killed a lot of fathers that a lot of children who don't follow the progress is slow and methodical as the enemy
1:08 pm
is fully entrenched and i still fight is continue to conduct counter attacks we're aware of opensource reports of alleged civilian casualties we take all allegations of civilian casualties seriously. at least expert and think tank director police that the u.s. has changed tactics to justify its attacks what we know for sure that the americans showed disregard for human life and for infrastructure what is happening this time around is that previously they would say you know we would contradict this to geisha and whenever all of civilians lives were lost nowadays they seem to have a pretty. preset justification so for example yesterday they bombed a mosque in the same village holds and they've issued a statement that we've bombed a former mosque which lost its status because he was turned by diversion to a command and control center so now they've come prepared for whatever criticism
1:09 pm
they might face but we don't think that this acuity council will will take any step towards that the united states is not alone in this sort of illegal. presence in syria had. u.s. senators found herself in control of a city that she took to twitter to complain about the influence of the pro is where a lobby in the united states on quarter picks up the story. in american politics multi-million dollar lobbies reign supreme and there's almost always a good reason to criticize them big pharma is a usual target i don't think americans have the same big warm fuzzy feeling for big pharma pharma pharma has a lot of lobbies a lot a lot reus and a lot of power sometimes it's the gun lobby the national rifle association the n.r.a. the n.r.a. they do have great power i agree with it they have great power over you people. they have less power over me and of course plenty of others but there's one rule
1:10 pm
everyone apparently needs to follow don't criticize israel democratic senator ilhan all maher learned the hard way with a five letter tweet it's all about the benjamins baby benjamins as in hundred dollar bills it's pretty clear she was referencing the israel lobby but almost everyone took it as a secret anti semitic insult from republicans to fellow democrats all maher wasn't danger of joining the black book of anti semites and so i submit to troops have no place in the halls of congress it is dangerous for democrats leadership to stay silent on this reckless language nancy pelosi please speak we can't be silent on a mom remove anti-semitism from house foreign affairs committee remove flagrant hostility to jews and israel and then i will vote on house resolution seventy two to condemn israel and anti semitic hate infiltrating u.s. politics college campuses and halls of congress democratic leaders have condemned
1:11 pm
to hell more for use of anti semitic troops and prejudicial accusations about israel's supporters a couple of jewish democratic congressmen even wrote a letter to the party's leadership asking them to join in on the outreach and benjamin's were no doubt involved there one of the letter signers received over one hundred thirty thousand dollars from the israel lobby in twenty eighteen in total apac spent three and a half million lobbying politicians last year and in the end omar had. to apologize but she's not alone in washington pro israel democrats are having none of it some are forming a faction within the party for those with seemingly undying loyalty to israel twenty twenty is only a year away and parties are already preparing for the electoral battle there are sure to be plenty of topics to debate but like every other presidential election it's likely that the criticism of israel will be out of the question donald quarter r.t. . from the united national antiwar coalition shared his thoughts on the issue i
1:12 pm
think the policies of israel or the policies of the united states in that area of the world us depends upon israel for many things. in that region there are laws that are they are trying to pass that make it actually illegal to criticize israel so israel has a big effect on what happens in the united states and as part of the general move to roll back civil liberties and the freedom of right of freedom of speech in united states they are trying to make it illegal to criticize israel at this time. the united states ambassador to germany has called for nato to be strengthened because as he puts it russia is on the doorstep peter all of the reports it's called and sudden recent threats of sanctions against europe haven't gone down well . washington's man in berlin and boss of the richard grinnell is being hung out
1:13 pm
advice left and right to chancellor angela merkel over which direction she should stay in her country in the latest polls of wisdom that she should spend more money on weapons and that germany should use its energy connections with russia to put pressure on moscow the germans have the leverage with russia imagine if chancellor merkel stood up and said because of the russian behavior because of the malign activity and the increased offense we cannot give you more influence by buying your energy nolde stream to his top of the u.s. hit list when it comes to joint german russian projects that the u.s. isn't keen on with washington saying it doesn't want to become too dependent on moscow to the grenelle also expressed disappointment with germany's military spending saying that commitments made to nato needed to be all that the u.s. is simply reminding its great german allies that now is not the time to undercut or weaken nato with the russians at the doorstep it should be clear to everyone that
1:14 pm
nato needs strengthening this isn't the first time though that the us ambassador has handed out some quite on diplomatic advice. and german companies doing business in iraq should wind down operations immediately never tell a host country what to do. we're not a banana republic. a mix of. tightening. the german people have taken
1:15 pm
a dim view of u.s. policy in these areas the latest polling shows eighty five percent of germans view the transatlantic relationship in a negative or even a very negative light with the majority saying they want to germany to give the u.s. a wider berth if we look at where german saw potential threats coming from less than two percent said russia right wing populism and protectionism was named as the biggest concern for germans i asked people in berlin why this view on u.s. german relations she listened a moment to the ration ship is difficult right now because the world has become more tense due to trust policies it's the politics of provocation we've lost some of the respect we had put us due to its form. the people themselves to get along well but the politicians sometimes fail to flag this they're having problems of american precedent i think washington's hardline approach to it. doesn't seem to
1:16 pm
be going down too well with the german people peter all of a. an article in the campus newspaper sparks control this is the author suggests keeping a record of racist behavior by white male students that story out of this in a moment. when folks are talking about social. cortez out of new york that congresswoman saying. that you know socialism is bad and we need higher taxes we need redistribution of wealth that's actually not the solution to some of the shortcomings of capitalism the solution is access to give people access to capital because fifty percent of the stocks in america are owned by one percent of the population that's an incredibly lopsided concentration of the greatest growth engine in the world by a very small community. so what we've got
1:17 pm
to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic development. and. i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical. to sit down in. welcome back civilians cannot return to iraq's second city of mosul because of the appalling amount of explosives left among seven million tons of debris united nations mine action service is produced that morning more than one hundred thousand homes are being destroyed or damaged there are fears explosives are still inside
1:18 pm
after a massive three year u.s. led coalition bombing campaign to defeat eisel that ended in twenty seven problems made worse by what's known as three decontamination mines hidden underground as well as among the debris the head of the u.n. mine action service warns it's all having a heavy physical and psychological effect mine action is about suffering it's about people waking up at night with nightmares it's about kids who have their future jeopardized by disability disability has been in mental health physical disability it's about a country that cannot get back on its feet cannot have all the tools they need to revive the economy it's because their rents are contaminated it is a lot how much from the u.n. mine action service he says this still a lot of work to do before mosul can be inhabited again. basically to find the contamination all over the year especially the west and. it's include it in private health and critical infrastructure until now we've been focusing on critical
1:19 pm
infrastructure mainly and that complete that over fourteen hundred. not the flood problem and longer we're clearing critical infrastructure and holsters buildings with several stories where each store or it needs to clear separately and this in combination with the seven point six million tons of debris that is of the mate that in the reactor is not longer improvised explosive devices in combination with ammunition that has been fired but it's both a function of currently conducting a survey of the liberated areas between floors of joy and number last year which we had to close to seventeen dollars an explosive are such different pipes and that's a good indication but there's more than doubts. donald trump has once again provoked the wrath of iran after slamming the country's islamic revolution to be a failure in a tweet in english and farsi the president ramped up his criticism of tehran even further forty years of corruption forty years of repression forty
1:20 pm
years of terror the regime in iran has produced only forty years a feeler the long suffering iranian people deserve a much brighter future rounds marking forty years since this revolution which saw the overthrow of the u.s. banks made a law that ever since relations between the sea countries have been fraught last november the trumpet ministration imposed the harshest sanctions to date on tehran when targeting the country's energy shipping and financial sectors we've asked the iranians what they make of the u.s. president's latest quip. but i do not agree with trump's words about the forty year corruption and suppression this is not about corruption can be found everywhere he posted in farsi so that everyone could understand and he wanted to show that he doesn't agree with those who are running our country but i personally do not like it or are trying to interfere from outside the other server. really don't take
1:21 pm
those words very seriously his remarks are like t.v. this is different things every day it was just as if his intention was to really help the people interest you have friendly he is by writing your mother tongue then he should read there are sanctions like those are medication which have put a strain on our people that would show good well. seems race issues in a far from the headlines these days and that's also true at yale university in the us after a student published a column in the campus newspaper in it she suggested keeping a record of racist and sexist behavior by white males possible use later on everyone knows a why boy with shiny brown hair and a saccharine smile that conceals his great ambitions one day i'll turn on the television and i'll see him sitting down for his senate confirmation hearing i'll recall a message where he likened a woman's body to a particularly large animal i'll kick myself for forgetting to screenshot the
1:22 pm
evidence i can let things slip by i'm watching you white boy and this time i am taking this screen shot. what kind of a hate has yale become this is not progressive it's juvenile and malicious pernicious yale paper prints racist guide on how to destroy a white boy lives like cavanagh this article proves two things first it is the left in the democratic party and its members that are racist and second if you go to yale you will leave more stupid than when you entered she just put into words what a lot of women are doing and have already done this is just trying times up out in multiple sentences and guys should be warned that whatever they type and post is being screenshot it she's probably doing them a service as you can see the article sparked controversy online with some accusing the author of hate speech i sustained a small is the author of evil is banal is a senior at jonathan edwards college she studies philosophy and writes
1:23 pm
a regular column for the daily news debates over political correctness at university are frequent here not internationally we debated the call for surveillance of young white males. i think that the hate of white people right now has been so normalized on on educational campuses and where the media and it's become so much the point where if someone did this the opposite way if it was white vice versa if a white wrote this about some other people then he would get them the insane amount of backlash and it would be much worse than if this person this woman wrote this about white men and i have to say that it isn't the surveillance that is scary it's the fact that it's intimidating they're creating a system that intimidates white men and pushes them down and makes them look over their shoulders and makes them worry and that is the tactic of a totalitarian state and they seem to not be able to wait until they can inflict a want to bondage in the mainstream media has has does this label on the white man
1:24 pm
and even white people in general on college campuses on in jobs even at restaurants i'm currently college student right now and i see this this this whole i guess clay coming to everyone's minds thinking that white people are bad white people she claims for their ancestors problems you know that shouldn't be happening and i'm not sure whether this marks an occasion of desperation for leftism or opportunities a sense of blooming opportunity or maybe both but you're not really on the left unless you're a victim and in order to be a victim you have to have an oppressor and they appeared to have settled all the different causes all the different angles or less doesn't appear to have settled on white males for racism sexism bigotry and homophobia and that is the great evil of america and we are going to be made to pay for that one way or another even if we're innocent and of course most of us are. major protests are underway across
