watching closely watching the hawks. was. another turbulent week for venezuela both russian and u.s. resolutions to resolve the country's crisis failed at the u.n. security council of washington's economic pressure prompts caracas to transfer the european h.q. of its main oil firm to moscow. sees a sixteenth weekend of yellow vest movement unrest with police resorting to tear gas and water cannon against the protesters. the u.s. and north korean leaders held their second summit but failed to reach a deal on denuclearization accusing each other of unreasonable demands.
for joining us this evening this is r.t. international. the border between venezuela and colombia witnessed further violence this week tensions over american aid deliveries intensified and this where the president nicolas maduro as blocked the shipments from entering claiming that they could be carrying weapons and international efforts to end the crisis of stalled the u.n. security council rejecting draft resolutions from both russia and the united states . by voting against this resolution some members of this council continue to shield the duro and his cronies and prolong the suffering of the venezuelan people the time for a peaceful transition to democracy is now they're going to use them with us finally we have reached the culmination of the american workers created double standards show over venezuela washington and london have both again robbed an entire nation
out of billions of dollars in the same time are pushing them to accept a pittance due to regime change as they say you first of all create great humanitarian problems and then you call upon the whole world to solve them we look forward to genuinely free and fair elections. and to a government that reflects the will and aspirations of the venezuelan people. today's vote is an excellent example of where the veto rule is necessary for protecting the peace and people's right to determine their future both the russian and the us resolutions didn't pass the voting in the un security council the russian one got less votes in favor that against four in favor and seven against the us draft was vetoed by russia and china the russian ambassador said that if the us resolution had passed it would be the first case in history that the united nations security council deposed a legitimate leader and imposed another one to a sovereign country the venezuelan representatives spoke as well calling to stop
interfering into the matters of his country the power to be this will has to do with having a swelling sovereignty and of an assault on people they behave like colonial east they are planted in atlanta this time the peroration against it is sort of right out the same kind of took it out of force at the same time they are just feeling out of money you see something outrageous indeed so the diplomatic community in the crossroads again the un as steve members who spoke after the voting called it to all of their colleagues to put their differences aside to resolve the venezuelan crisis reporting in new york try to be charged as r.t. . in the meantime hundreds of activists have really didn't the spanish capital madrid in support of president madeira demonstrators waved hands off venezuela banners and denounced what they see is an attempt by the u.s. to intervene in another country's internal affairs for a desire to burn as well as a un rapporteurs in twenty seventeen believes that washington is likely to escalate the situation. quite clear to me that the united states is waging war on
international law now that trump does that does not surprise me question is what will the. international prize in pristina be for the united states will the united states take the risk of a flagrant aggression against venezuela where there is a danger of violence and it should be the function of the united nations to prevent that. nicolas maduro says that washington has its sights firmly set on venezuela's oil reserves the world's largest u.s. sanctions have already blocked seven billion dollars with a state owned assets in a proactive move on its way the vice president told us more about that decision. it over there in fact the americans are pursuing a predatory policy appropriating venezuela's assets and therefore violating the
legitimate interests of our country they violated all existing international investment rules asked for europe where venezuela's accounts were frozen we have already begun to take specific legal steps we hired lawyers to protect our interests primarily with regard to our gold which is now illegally withheld by the bank of england we also began to take measures for when these wells legal protection we're talking about the theft of the israel and assets which was organized by the united states and venezuela has the right to protect its legitimate interests as for the transfer of the vs a office from europe to moscow this is connected with the expansion of the corporation for russian company in the for the energy and the feel of oil and gas together with the european office of say other branches of the company will also move to moscow. the united states is also counseled the visas of forty nine influential venezuelans aligned with president maduro says anyone who steals from
the venezuelan people or undermines democracy is not welcome and sisko domingo's head of latin american studies at london's middlesex university believes that the u.s. is doing everything in its power to achieve its goal of venezuela. people in venezuela particularly the million. dollars drum and the pressure from the united states in particular almost as closely on the military literally as could three years again and again through those who are shown. through blackmail you name it got those words where's it going on behind the scenes as all foreign lingle almost nothing usually a meal of these raises the specter or something. which can be organized irregular forces and trained and organized by the united states and mr abrams exactly the league it is organized so the existing concern there for that confirms not only won't always fit it the united states is going to score something much
more dramatic. for the sixteenth weekend in a row yellow vests march as well in cities across france on saturday clashes erupted at some of the demonstrations with police deploying tear gas and water cannon. forty thousand was said to take a nation wide four thousand of them in paris and friday press them back on again appealed for calm urging people to refrain from the kind of violence has been seen
in previous weeks police made a number of arrests today all the speak out as a grassroots rally of the fuel taxes if a citizen broadened into why the anger at the president's handling of the economy. they keep us there they should at least meet one of our demands to show they are listening to us that we are not doing this for nothing that fuel prices are rising and they were supposed to be frozen where all traces are increasing in the supermarkets to ten percent on products it's the opposite of what we want. well that's what we want them to give the purchasing power back to the people of the lower fact on essential crowder's the ground is the citizens initiative referendum those are the two essential demands as long as they don't give us that we stop. third time such as this that people in difficult split will have a hot time surviving on gas salaries i think and the masses and
masses against police violence have many different messages as. was. on thursday at donald trump and. north korean leader kim jong un long with retinues and thousands of journalists descended on vietnam's capital for the bilateral summit the much talks failed to produce any deal north korea's denuclearization and the lifting of u.s. sanctions against pyongyang with trump and kim unable to agree on terms spot that will head way washington and pyongyang say the dialogue will continue and as an apparent goodwill gesture the u.s. and south korea are suspending their annual joint military exercises pentagon says is to reduce tension and advance denuclearization on the korean peninsula however the drills have not in fact being cancelled but rather replaced by another set of exercises on the scale of open take stock of the second trump kim summit. the talks
in hanoi between trump and cam were complete failure a blow out a bomb trump says the talks failed because of what he says were unreasonable demands they wanted the sanctions lifted. in their entirety and we couldn't do that but that is not how north korea remembers the meeting because the word what we proposed wasn't the removal of all sanctions but they were partial removal we proposed to the united states articles of sanctions that impede the symbol of economy and a lot of our people so with conflicting information about what actually took place at the meeting between the two leaders we've now got the u.s. state department issuing an explanation of the explanation after the talks flopped in hanoi trying to jumped on a plane to alaska it was certainly not singing the song of peace as he praised the troops america does not see conflict but if we are forced to defenders we will
fight and we will win in an overwhelming fashion you are a powerful warning to the world to never strike american soil you are a warning that everybody knows of in nobody wants to play with you would think that with the utter trainwreck that was the talks with pyongyang that donal. trump would be cruising for a bruising when he got back to the united states however that doesn't seem to be the case the epic failure seems to have been met with pretty broad approval both democrats and republicans seemed rather chipper about it it's a good idea to try to. get not get in then he was a little bit that he was proposing the north koreans walk away thinking you know they've got they've won and gradually they will see they were sanctions regime begin to erode then they've won and frankly that would be unfortunate i was smart to expose the north korean delegation to the god of our economic prosperity that could be possible it's a good thing that he walked away rather than agreeing to something that was badly
flawed democratic presidential candidate toasting gabbert seem to stand alone invoicing disappointment kim jong un has clearly stated that he is holding on to these nuclear weapons as his only deterrent against the united states coming in and waging a regime change war in north korea so while you know i'm deeply concerned about the fact that this summit yesterday ended without an agreement it's not surprising because of this policy this regime change our policy my pompei all laid out the washington consensus with rather sharp terminology america has a responsibility to protect itself by pushing back against those evil nations and those evil leaders who intend to do real harm to the world yes much like george w. bush with his rhetoric about evil doers donald trump is not setting himself up to winning nobel peace prize any time soon but most of the political establishment that normally hates donald trump seems to think that that's a ok mop and artsy new york. is collectivist old is that the trumpet
ministrations. up eroding north korea's trust in white house promises. it was not no deal versus bad deal it was a missed opportunity and the real question remains whether what was it that caused president or chairman kim for that matter to stand up and walk away hour and a half early i think there's a crisis in confidence between north korea in the us you know kim knows what's going on in the world and he looks around and he sees unfortunately and depressingly the united states simply doesn't keep its word around the world trump is going to trying to show success. he and that i think was one of the considerations in the discussions in in vietnam over over north korean missiles the reality is is a trump is looking to make
a deal and to show international success and to so that he can have something to come back to and to offset the turmoil the inter political turmoil he's facing back home but if we've taken over isis in syria then the question remains what about the troops u.s. troops who are there in syria what will happen with them those are questions that remain unanswered. i'm teasing india carried out an air strike on what it says was a terrorist camp in pakistan increasing fears of a military confrontation between the two nuclear neighbors.
south asian politics and security experts i'm of the do mr believe that there might be a foreign power beyond the conflict what we are seeing at the moment is the low intensity conflict on the ground on the sea is going to go on what you need to remember here is that although the pakistani prime minister region the indian kaptchuk pilot has ecclesiastes that is a month of peace treaty hind that i'd come back has to do with the phrase he's personally coming from the united states saudi arabia and united i mean it's kind of forced pakistan to stay the course you said that if they do neither of these
parties want to go down the peace and in pakistan the army has the state so there is a military establishment is there whole walk on india we haven't lost a list of his own party who choose craving for some kind of confrontation at foxconn which would give it to claxon under my list in the forthcoming election. donald trump has dedicated much of a two hour unscripted speech to russia to tell you what he said and bring you other stories after this break. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. period dramatic developments only and. i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical. you sit down and
talk. it's. lost its moral compass or maybe you have to put more values into the system my personal opinion is we have to strengthen multinational multilateral institutions living in the dark it's like. having always. come to action so we need to put back to the system and we need stronger leadership and better leadership.
welcome back varying off script donald trump's given a two hour speech at the conservative political action conference but it seems that there's been little change to the topics on the table with the russia probe still dominating. america is winning again. is respected again. say something like russia if you can get us hillary clinton. i know everybody's having a good time i'm glad that we're all having fun and that c.n.n. and others. are russia to go. collusion with russia.
that nasty business with robert. i said why isn't. he wanted as f.b.i. director i mean the things that. it was in america first in many cases it was america last we are reversing decades of blunders and betrayals you know i'm totally off script right now. and this is how i got elected by being off script. police a legal and media analyst lionel joins me now because have you a lot of the interim speech as i understand i haven't seen it myself so i'm kind of at your mercy slightly here but i think the main topics he went on for two hours it was a tour of his greatest hits some would say you would might expect he stayed away from the things he's criticized over but it seems he tackles them had only talks about
russia he talks about the move the probe talks about immigration why do you think this is his approach and will it work in his favor in terms of his ratings. ok first let's understand for those watching see pag the conservative political action committee is his people his fans not republicans but conservative republicans one with thing his crowd they love him it's not the state of the union it's not a a campaign speech no one could argue it's always a campaign speech so i understand the context these were people that loved him he loves them it was a friendly convocation of sorts if i could let me explain to the notion of this this reference to their russian e-mail he was saying you can't arts joke
anymore to do whatever there is no sense of humor the fake news media do not understand that we can joke that i can say something off the cuff for example he said when i said russia where are the emails he was harkening back and referring to that all joel control and he really issued it again to say as an example of that joke was never understood the mainstream fake news media as he would call them take that is again like reiterating this fiction is that he is actually calling out to russia you have the e-mails now the subtext to bring everyone back to a square one last february last month february nineteenth or so the senate intelligence committee bipartisan said there was no evidence of russian trumped collusion conspiracy confederation name it it killed them to
say that they if they bug grudgingly said ok fine. i can't say this enough this is dead d.o.a. there is no more life to this story yet in the mideast. stream media they're still talking about it even though they've said there is no collusion nobody's even even nothing so anyway law and order to put that just just to add to what you said because i think we've got a appropriate sound body because putin has been accused of being behind troops speech even though it was pretty much off the cuff he says some listen to this. how many pieces parts of president putin has to do as was president trying trying to accomplish today he was also saying things that really look like lattimer putin scripted his speech. i mean it's quite impressive isn't it and maybe putin's in an
ear piece and from serious but really coordinated to make it look like trumps just riffing it's some coordination if that's the case what why are they still banging away on this drum. do you do you realize. this is the real story these are this is the pinnacle the zenith of american broadcast news provider in elizabeth lee's people some of them millionaires billionaires the best the brightest squad made up giving you the best and they actually said that nobody came in with a hawk nobody no white coat came in it's to dated them and say would you let would you what at least wait let the russian thing go now i'm not trying to tell people what to do but. one could argue that there are some things that president trump has said that might be gary say peak and controversial you might
want to go there this is trump arrangement but there is a trump hyphen putin hyphen russia during send drum this is a preoccupation a pavlovian obey since this weird kind of a connection it's an obsession an obsessive compulsive. reaction that they can not let go. he goes to show you years from now cognitive psychologists and scientists will swill call this the trump putin effect where even though there's no evidence of anything it's the old joke about you believe me or your lying eyes or no matter what is being said continue the troll continue the mean continue the idea as dull it's never change an american
or or anybody for that matter tuning in will still think there's something to this russian. trump connection even though there is it i mean there is cut to be a point where somebody says look. you've kicked that dead horse as we say in the south that dog don't hunt you you have exhausted this there's nothing left for you and there's nothing left to this story it's gone you know as we speak mr moller is wrapping up a lot of his assistants and his legal top tiered lawyers are packing up saying good bye we're wrapping everything up they are gone with this one i mean done it they are done there is nobody the mahler investigation pierced i became remember years ago you hear the story about this poor japanese soldier i don't know how true it was there will always be this japanese that's
a soldier who didn't know the war was over eight years later somebody was a who is this guy and he still fighting because nobody told him he was away from reality or hit a bump to the head or something that's who these people are they don't recognize it's almost like saying it's time to come home come in sit down have a cup of tea relax perhaps a nice sedative it's all over and what happened was let me just tell you in terms of trump playing to that crowd. yesterday bernie sanders also the democrat by the way keep an eye on this this is the last person the democratic party ever won so they've got ten seconds no i have to ask you to make it a very sorry graphic up. there i'm sorry but as as trump was wowing them bernie sanders was wowing others as well and the democratic party is in complete freefall and disarray to be continued never enough time but it's always
a pleasure lionel many thanks thank you much and great to have you with us to me for the latest and often are. when i see images and hear things what they're doing. i see people who are afraid not see these young men and some women in these white supremacist groups and i see those really scared. scared they lose it. all they have the whole or that is the color of their skin that's all they have going for themselves their white skin. my seven there's doing drugs my nephew was still in drugs my sister just with doing drugs it was like an epidemic of drug abuse america's public enemy number one
in the united states is drug abuse he started going after the users in the prison population sewer we started treating sick people people who are addicted to these drugs like criminals while i was on the hill i increasingly became convinced that the war on drugs was a mistake there are countless numbers of people who are in prison for. a long sentence in this for whom minor minor offenders in the drug trade it's a lot watching your children grow up and miss you in waves and say by daddy as you're walking out of the business it's just it doesn't get easier. most folks don't like the truth. we're living in a generation. then. is confused just as it
relates to the truth. where it's. power. and the truth is minutes so built up. donald j. trump say is. sweet. whatever he feels like saying. tweeting to his own. destruction. ya need to hit me today. just because you say what's on your mind then what you feel does not mean that you are a good still what over the truth. you
from somewhere you seek a certain pride in itself would be always surprised if so what it was so if you go from university a pang campus and university on fortieth street and you could make one shine you know on the bottom you want to get if you got a project. the west will be right there are a few of these little blocks like this these little row homes you see people living on top of each other i guarantee wherever you are from russia where your from your only trying to live road home is this is called road home.
