it was supposed to be a pivotal day for britain but instead of finally leaving the e.u. the prime ministers left trying to push a watered down deal through parliament. now the headlines the u.s. secretary of state claims russia's interfered in every single u.s. election since two thousand and four. and an existential threat to the terry and five group of us resurrect the cold war era advocacy group calling for pushback against china the move immediately draws the eye of beijing.
and i welcome so i think a lot from moscow hawkins wherever you are thanks for joining us this hour. now this friday was supposed to go down in history as the day that britain finally left the european union instead of that time i will try to push a diluted version of twice defeated bricks divorce deal through the high we only she would change her redlines we could reach a consensus on the way forward people outside of this chamber will rightly wonder what on earth is going to say we must close the door on the prime minister's proposal close the door and move on she wasted weeks and weeks on this fruitless pursuit should have been the day on which we left the european union. however. we are. today. where we are finally the date is here march twenty ninth one thousand nine t. full story. for britain marking its departure from the european union.
or wait a second. a day like any other except with less shock the world the u.k. has voted to leave the european union. article fifty was triggered on march twenty ninth two years ago the article fifty process is now underway and in accordance with the wishes of the british people the united kingdom is leaving the european union so many promises made and shattered since then it's within our grasp to leave with a deal on the twenty ninth of march on the twenty ninth of march on the twenty ninth of march with a deal with a deal on the twenty ninth of march we will be leaving the e.u. on the twenty ninth of march two thousand nine hundred eleven pm a declaration made no once not twice but prime minister in this house has said on one hundred times that we will be leaving the european union on the twenty ninth of
march pile on to votes of no confidence against the british prime minister who deal struck down in parliament twice already and the house of commons voting against alternative after alternative after alternative showing no majority support for any of the brics that options what do you think the days going to be remembered by now how we didn't leave. the day we were supposed to be leaving the european union but we're not. personally i suppose the french and most well you know if there's a small it is a day i don't think we should blame twenty ninth for the mess that we've made of bricks march twenty ninth well it's a perfectly good day it would personally like to come up with a new day. because. it's got the whole idea of your twenty nine yeah entry voted to leave the european union whether agree with the north most with cross a choice march twenty ninth was meant to be the grand departure of the u.k. from the e.u. with hopes of a brand. new future ahead instead brags it is now
a saga so lengthy and convoluted it's hard to keep track of all the plot twists with the deadline of the final chapter now postponed due to chaos how this all plays out is only yet to be figured out reporting from london and. with our. after today's vote we'll see what the future holds for brooks it if the m.p.'s vote for the withdrawal agreement the date of leaving the e.u. will be moved to may the twenty second if that fails would be set for april twelfth without any side and. meanwhile to mark the day that should have been one museum in southwest england decided to bring out of banksy classic for public display of controversial work by the celebrated british street artist all that monkeying around perhaps found time to comment on the bricks at fiasco will let you decide. now protesters from both sides of the bricks at debate have planned rallies across
the u.k. hundreds from the so-called march to leave already moving towards parliament square in central london this particular rally is actually been began back on march the sixteenth two hundred seventy five balls away in the northeast city of sunderland the director of the political risk analysis group thinks the british public is unsure where to go from here. what really counts are we going to have a second appear a second chance to vote and this is going to be revoked at least temporarily until we solve. the key question that's what hopefully will be answered in the next weeks to come people have a lot of different mixed emotions about what turned into what we do see i think is confusion in what people want to see for example the petition that was online that called for articles to be revoked but at the same time we had it was reported almost a million man march for a second referendum so i think the people themselves if they come if they do do not want britain to happen then. coming one aligned message instead of two separate
things we truly want the same thing you see. the conclusion of the report by special counsel robert mueller that there was no conspiracy between president trump and the kremlin was supposed to put the whole issue to bed while answering a question from u.s. democrats secretary of state mike compos surprisingly expanded his list that will actions russia interfered in all the way back to the george w. bush era our senior correspondent what i gather this has this report. for two years they dug and dug investigated and questioned as sad as it may be trump is not a russian agent who so they think but she officially russia gate collusion was a hook for the style if you only knew just how much could lose and that was in the past do you believe russia interfered with the twenty six thousand u.s. general election yes they did in the two thousand and twelve and the two thousand
and eight thank you and the tea literally or that's a bold claim especially given the evidence he mentioned he didn't mention any evidence begs the question of course why washington waited for more than a decade to say so but there could be a simple explanation the presidents before trump would get this compromised agents russian agent and country to miss the pompei oh i have evidence it's so obvious if you think about it let's go back russia meddled and one year election for barack obama how else could you explain the bombers little microphone slip where he was caught red handed reporting to putin.
for that it was george bush who russia put into the white house twice in two thousand and two thousand and four look at them together putin and bush all that touching and feeling hugs and shakes romantic almost and don't get me started about the eyes and look the man in the eye. was able to. do. sense of his soul and you want to tell me that bush wasn't a russian stooge come on get real as red as a cherry and that's just the last few presidents this meddling goes back decades reagan who presided over the collapse of the u.s.s.r. was also compromised this is all just part of the plan i mean what kind of sick man a traitor makes a whole beat of collecting and translating russian jokes and then posting
about it the story was an american in a russian arguing about the two countries in the americas said look in my country i can walk into the oval office i can pound the president's desk and say mr president i don't like the way you're running our country and the russian said i can do this i can go into the criminal to the general secretary's office pound is disconcerting mr general secretary i don't like the way president reagan is running used by the. russian meddling is obvious it is going on for more than one hundred years abraham lincoln surprise was a russian agent why do you think russia sent two fleets of warships to new york and san francisco in a show of support for him and the unionists during the american civil war the coming of the russian fleets was decisive inch intervention you don't hear much about that and for good reason you need to leave evidence lying about say that
comrade lincoln rest in peace lenin's blessings be upon him there you have it concrete proof of president after president being russian agents you got it right mr pompei oh about the whole russia meddling. for the past two years american mainstream media's given near nonstop coverage to the truck rush of collusion saga although the t.v. ratings might have spiked after twenty six the election they're now experiencing a significant drop after the long awaited report was released the syrian t.v. network whose critical coverage of trump has been labeled as fake news by the us presidents has seen a noticeable decline during prime time hours likewise one of the most popular because last half a million views in just a week about twenty percent of our audience as always happens to trump friendly fox news has seen a jump of over a million viewers. chief correspondent trying to explain the trend saying there
just hasn't been much news since the bombshell move the findings were announced some of the media though still not prepared to let it go. i think we've done the media the press has done one of the great reporting jobs in the history of especially of covering a presidency by the most news organizations have trust in his prosecutorial judgment but that doesn't mean of course that there isn't compelling and incriminating evidence that should be shared with the american people this president has a way of trying to get into people's heads and indoctrinate them he's been saying no collusion no collusion no collusion he does this all the time this is not the in of anything we discuss the level of the mainstream media faces weighing ratings against accurate reporting with investigative journalists and just. because of the nature of. this thing sort of like hotcakes or you know ratings for cable stations
went up after the election not down. enormous number so that provided a huge disincentive to wave from the narrative obviously there's a few watch innocent they're not going on air and saying. we got a wrong we're really sorry we're going to go back and fix that they're actually just basically doubling down on this and moving on to a new. idea which is that the thing that's important is obstruction and not collusion the mainstream media c.n.n. m.s.n. b.c. and others took it to such an extreme and have absolutely burned their reputations and they've also commented jeff zucker over at c.n.n. said we don't do investigative journalism well then what kind of journalism is there if you're not actually looking for the information sourcing your information as opposed to just taking bad circular reporting off phony information we have trade deals that are going on ongoing with china very exciting news there that you
have stuff going on overseas and brags that. and there talking about there is no news out there that is not the reason for their lack of a rating if you look at the exit it's from mainstream media into online media and citizen journalism you will see that the shift is going to where people can actually get accurate news. china's foreign ministry's dismissed the allegations that beijing poses a threat to the united states as a cliche that soft it was announced that a cold war era advisory body was being revived to focus on china the group says i am to tackle the full array of conventional non-conventional dangers posed by. the existential threat presented from the people's republic of china every university in america has penetrated to gain as much intelligence about america pretty much everything they do is in one way or another in influence operations and many of those employees operations are designed to have psychological effects on us the russian charges of political meddling or especially ridiculous when one considers the year of the committee on the present danger was first set up in the early one
nine hundred fifty s. it was tossed with countering communist influence in the us it resurfaced twenty years later to once again challenge the soviet union during the cold war today the committee claims china is now the greatest threat america is facing international china specialist andrew lloyd told us the ongoing trade war between washington and beijing is part of that multifaceted approach to weaken china. it's only. six the beast of the united states against china. there are some that just. about. excess. protection and election but also. those the. transmission lines are special. or you can. also do
kind of military. on a seat so i think that even though there was a deal on the trade. this. u.s. authorities have issued an official extradition request for the affluent chilean businessman over his part in weapons sales the saddam hussein's regime in iraq over three decades ago about the washington didn't regard the entrepreneurs activities as criminal quite the contrary in fact as artie's caleb moore can explain. the u.s. department of justice wants to extradite a wealthy chilean wine manufacturer carlos cargo and to stand trial one of the charges well according to one thousand nine hundred ninety three indictment he sold weapons to former iraqi strongman saddam hussein cardo and maintains he did not however commit any crimes. judges. do it alone me to clarify i didn't to loop my complete innocence and that's all that seem to me at the time now the
indictment says that car we have the sworn testimony of a member of the national security agency this official says that his weapons deals were carried out with the complete approval of the united states my files will contain my notes and memoranda from meeting started tended with cia director casey or cia deputy director gates which included discuss cia authorized approved and. assisted cardew and in the manufacture and sale of cluster bombs and other munitions to iraq cargo one started out as a man who manufactured mining explosives however with the help of the us installed military dictatorship and she lay he started selling weapons around the world now one of those u.s. allies that cargo and happily did business with was the baathist government of iraq back in the one nine hundred eighty s. iraq was at war against the islamic republic of iran iran ayatollah khomeini was certainly no friend of washington or the pentagon so the united states gave saddam
hussein a large amount of support in his war against the iranians in one thousand nine hundred eighty four the u.s. ambassador to chile called cardio and business quote a lucrative market for cluster bombs but a lot has changed in thirty years so adam and started this cruel war against kuwait tonight the battle has been joined american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm iraq to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger sort of appears that they now want to extradite cardo and for a crime they gave him the full go ahead to do it shows that just like in the case of saddam hussein himself working with the united states never really comes with a guarantee what they help you to do today they might extradite you for doing tomorrow caleb mop and artsy new york your what's going through the national with more news just off to this short break.
and i'll be speaking to get out of the world of politics or business i'm sure business i'll see you there. was the international the performance of a greek tragedy at the renowned university in france has been cancelled after it was labeled phobic colonialist and racist the play shouldn't part of an annual ancient theatre festival but blocked actors from entering the theater because a black face makeup was used during last year's performance this year actors were supposed to put on black marks according to the university's administration a founder of a french things i think we spoke to says the it is an act of violence. this is an absolutely to collect around measure to ban a type of performance an act of violence took place in the biggest french
university where they blog from going ahead. and performance we choose two thousand five hundred two years old and as you mentioned in. clear to use of masks with different colors it's traditional like the portray different characters and black masks i'm on there that's why all we hear about blackface is not serious at all short of this is a new ideological framework by which is less than a year old age old so it should begin to french ministers published a joint statement opposing the current solution calling it an attack on freedom of speech and the president of the council of france is a black association thinks that actors could have put on african costumes without any controversy controversies. about the blacklist imparted like face originally came from europe the court was condemned by human rights defenders of the un and the european parliament yesterday typical points of black voters for a white person is a change their appearance and acting like a dark skinned person because of his first appeared during the times of slavery was
done to mock him demonized black people francis communities forcibly reconciled with crimes against humanity turning this into a joke of human thinking at least this is what i need all we can dress like like that one can be black this is so funny and so devolution but if they do want to see black people on stage the question why not just use african costumes instead up with the i can't dictate how these performances should be done of course so there are thousands of different ways to get around it in. british enzio the integrity initiative has been trying to create a europe wide network to counter so-called russian propaganda new leaks have revealed they also apparently reveal the u.k. government funded projects been sending spies abroad to test the capabilities of potential agents and then report that data to the british foreign and commonwealth office but all court has got the details. yet another plan of the u.k. funded integrity initiative has surfaced in their fight against misinformation the
expose network sets out to identify civil society organisations operating across europe countering disinformation up skill those are going in recess. and communications and through the provision of. growing of leaks that began in late twenty eighteen they outline plans for the expose network a web of european wide companies combating misinformation the documents map illustrates just how wide it is stretching from the u.k. across to eastern europe according to their terms outlined in the documents participants are required to handle sensitive information for the state and they also need to sign a strict non-disclosure agreement as for who is spreading the misinformation well most parties seem to have a fixation on russia. they've
been targeted by the russian media the russian government has criticized this directly and. that's not going to stop this because there's so many of us who can do this we're going to keep going while another striking example a ukrainian media watchdog called detector media it's responsible for monitoring the professional quality of news and television programs in the ukraine to them a pro russian position could be considered a violation of professional standards have a look at this article about the ukrainian intelligence services performing raids
against what they call pro russian media the watchdog was disappointed at how little the government succeeded with. our patriotic agenda those organizations may or may not have accepted money from the integrity initiative nevertheless exposes planned budget is around three million pounds annually from twenty eighteen to twenty twenty one and it's not like the british government didn't throw millions of pounds at integrity initiative last year the government funding this initiative with nearly two million pounds this financial year although when government misinformation is the concern it might be hard to be sure your government isn't the culprit even in the integrity initiative those who do start funding these activities you're going to find that western governments will be their resources to another organization in order to engage in propaganda that people know where become aware of the extent to which our classes go. gauge in manipulation.
and economic purposes this thing is. to and it's been going on for much longer refused to it doesn't seem to me the mainstream media is doing its job grimmy to the attention of western public this kind of propaganda operation in western european politics we're aware of this kind if you wish. the integrity initiative says its website is now closed pending investigation into the theft of data responding too early to the organisation denied any covert activities and said much of the published material was outdated we sent a request to the british foreign office regarding the latest batch of leaks so far still waiting for a response. and those are the headlines for this hour from the team and myself thanks for staying tuned here a lot international join us in thirty minutes for the latest global news updates.
after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the ball different clubs on one hand it is logical to sort of go from fields where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and a fresh perspective i'm used to surprising and i saw one on t.v. . i'm going to talk about football not the or else you can think i was going to go. by the way what is it that slide here.

greetings and salutations motive is the central component of the chicago police department's case against actor george the smaller the actor accused of by chicago police of staging a hate crime against himself by paying two personal trainers a scenario to attack him while he walked back to his chicago partment on january twenty ninth however in light of the dismissal of all charges against small it this week it is finally become apparent that the c.p.d. isn't telling the whole story chicago police superintendent eddie johnson claimed on the day small it was arrested that quote while a paid thirty five hundred dollars to stage this attack and drag chicago's
reputation through the mud in the process and why this stunt was orchestrated by small because he was dissatisfied with his salary after charges were dropped chicago mayor rahm emanuel took the good morning america to chat with fellow democratic party and white house alumni george stephanopoulos to claim again that small is guilty and that it was done to promote himself the problem is that twelve minutes before the case was sealed by prosecutors the c.p.t. chose to approve a freedom of it that clearly state that the crime is of undetermined motive that the brothers only told police they were pretty sure they received the hundred dollar bill from small of twenty five january two thousand and nineteen but he not sure when the bit but he was unsure when the bill was used and that they were pretty sure they received the check on january twenty seventh two thousand and nineteen which is.
