good morning this is art international live from the weekend with me kevin owen grateful for your company well the latest in this world news update to start with this story the russian embassy in washington has fired back at the newly released miller report on trump russian collusion it published a hefty document with the heading russia gate hysteria a case of severe russophobia it's a detailed rebuttal of the allegations made against moscow and reaches the following conclusion. the investigation didn't show any real evidence to back up claims of moscow's cyber attacks and attempts to subvert democracy all this time russia pointed to the obvious made up nature of these insinuations we call on our merican partners to finally disavow these allegations and join efforts to repair the damage to bilateral relations for the sake of our peoples and global security.
that miller report was finally released on thursday after almost two years of investigation much of it was heavily redacted it concluded there was no trump russian collusion ger in the twenty six presidential election campaign but was more guarded when it came to trump's alleged obstruction of the pro after report was released thursday some democrats knew their calls for donald trump to be impeached while republicans insist the president was exonerated by the findings meantime the media seems to be focusing on the division it's brought to us as an exit a goes down of reports this morning that divides been well filled of course by the very outlets the very same ones reporting now over this two year long investigation before it. trump is a traitor he's cronies are abetting him in his treachery and all of them are going to get what's coming for them this promise started to resonate across the airwaves of mainstream american channels even before the miller investigation became a thing and it started with this bombshell then senator jeff sessions met with the
russian ambassador in the u.s. the controversial russian ambassador sergey it's a shameful picture it is an open question whether there was collusion cooperation between trump associates during the campaign and russian officials current and former u.s. officials say he's considered one of the kremlin's top spies by u.s. intelligence some u.s. intelligence officials believe he's more than that breathing the same with the russian you were supposed to destroy not join them there was no redemption for sessions in the buna to i of the media and bassett a kiss like overnight got promoted to the rank of an h. and now here comes the facts the meetings were brief public and non-substantive the military team found no evidence of coordination between the trump campaign and russia in these chats the ones. deflates back into
a boring now former ambassador the next scandal reported to reveal a nother despicable truth about trump not only is he a lie himself but he lures others into his web of deceit president trump is facing new scrutiny today over a report that he told his personal attorney to lie to congress about his business dealings with russia we have breaking news tonight on the russia investigation here's what buzz feed news is reporting that as bombshell report coming from buzz feed news president directed his attorney to lie to congress about the moscow tower project congressional democrats calling. an immediate investigation declaring the trunk must be impeached at the story is true this one was rock solid the report claimed journalists corroborated the allegation with their own eyes india's colleagues said on c.n.n. this morning that you were briefed on these document we've been. we've seen documents we've been briefed and we're very confident in our reporting the
revelation was unprecedented but not in terms of factual value but because the miller team made an effort to personally very polarized the claim description of specific statements in characterization of documents and testimony on not accurate what do you think happened next any ideas buzz feed cocktail apologetically deleted the article no instead it blurted out more letters and words and sentences explaining that while the initial reporting was incorrect at the same time it wasn't and you make sense of that and the final jam the infamous meeting between trump's former can pain manager and the leaker in chief julian assange donald trump's former campaign manager paul man afford health secret talks with julian assange inside the ecuadorian embassy in london and visited around the time he
joined transcom paying the guardian has been told the military paid so much attention to this possibility it didn't even bother to look into it and no where on its five hundred plus pages does the report mention anything of the sort and this is just barely a handful of all the bombshells and sensations and are you open is nuked by the miller report it's still out there unphased in arrogance as obtaining their full suits there's really an organized campaign here involving the media the corporate media and the intelligence agencies. and there at the end the effort is to use that new even of the mueller report found that this whole scandal this whole pseudo scandal was much ado about nothing they're now trying to use the report the mueller report to increase the pressure on trump in order to drive him from office the behavior of the press is outrageous. a long awaited report might
hit on the alleged meeting between paul manifold and sons the but it did take a long hard look at the whistleblower his links to russia in the democratic national committee leak of over twenty thousand d.n.c. e-mails and other documents the investigation though provided no solid evidence of course of how exactly the data was obtained or whether or not. even existed this follows rest last week very publicly by u.k. police we brought those exclusive pictures are seeing right now after ecuador terminated his asylum in the london assembly the wiki leaks founder is now waiting his fate with an extradition hearing expected early next month over u.s. charges of government computer harks and it seems are for almost seven years in their own embassy he said pretty much a lot of times for. us and when it came it came abruptly the british daily newspaper or a british daily newspaper is it released a video that shows this is son's boxing imaginary partner and then strolling
through his tiny embassy kitchen because in case you missed it there's a look back at his time holed up there at s.w. one. in case you missed the door need it is that everyone. gets out of the embassy and into that everyone's favorite we. could do was embassy and looking for a decent painter decorator in the london area after julian assange hundreds carried out like that being a battering ram that was so very plain is the past tense sometimes it's a lot of sometimes it's hate you didn't know him many people saying stuff like a science. i want to leave. he's a complex character a man only truly understood by just two creatures on god's green earth pamela and discern this guy have you noticed there's always a can't just say now for anyone who's been trapped inside a foreign embassies by groom for the past few years
a son just famous publishing house documents on america's wars diplomats. politicians the us authorities a queue to have a few stern words with him about it now this is where it gets a little bit complicated so try to keep up a staunch first of all asylum because the u.k. was considering extraditing him to sweden where he had been accused of sexual assault the way he could claim the allegations were actually part of a plot to extradite him from sweden to the us and would have agreement fate awaits him there did you follow that just rewind. speed if you need to it boils down to this as some just supporters see him as a champion of free speech taking on the american monolith those who don't like him point to the allegations in sweden as a reason that evidence of war crimes is still evidence of war crimes even if the person telling you about them has a few shall we say idiosyncrasies and even if the claim is in sweden on
a set up that doesn't mean washington house anyway here's a little secret the media is hiding from you though life is complicated tony hunks is not always the hero so you just decide whether it's in the public's interest to see what the world's superpower is up to behind closed doors pommy deal with the rust. smalling former us vice president joe biden's no reportedly begun a fund raising campaign for twenty twenty presidential election it's already stood concern over whether or not he's really the challenged. champion the cause of the democrats caleb maupin. inside the offices of the democratic party elite alarm bells are going off why it seems that a progressive democratic socialist is now the front runner sanders is raising money fast and he's got a very big base of support but this isn't supposed to happen the way the game is
normally played the far left is not supposed to take the nomination even on left leaning m s n b c we've got voices saying that donald trump is preferable to bernie sanders and that's quite a statement coming from a network that often portrays the donald like the anti christ i find reprehensible as a human being what a socialist can do. to this company country as far as the strength and well being of our country the donald trump but even beyond the burnie movement the democratic party seems to be pretty well shaken up take the case of congresswoman ilana omar now the democratic leadership which has been pro israel since one thousand nine hundred forty eight sees her comments as anti-semitic congresswoman omar's use of and to symmetric groups and produce accuse ations about israel support this is deeply offensive we condemn these remarks and we call upon congresswoman omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments but i want to mark keeps raising
money in fact she's more popular than ever for a first term congresswoman turns out that there's a lot more discontent with the israel lobby than many were aware of and then there's alexandria because you know cortez now known as a c she is a first term congressional rock star more popular and well known than people who've been in congress for years but at this point nancy pelosi is saying that her victory meant nothing to have these wings. and her group on one side i think five people she even dismissed her new york city win as something that anyone or anything could do if labeled as a democrat those are districts that are some. only democratic this glass of water would win with a d. next to you is just a here's what people in new york city told us about the ruckus inside of the democratic battleship democrats need to be worried period we need to like come together and figure out where the united nations is going to be and focus where to
scattered to so many voices is certainly a split you know i mean popularity versus the establishment dance to play in this divide between all of these and you have to get a band together to work to say that your socialist democrats who are just believe you know we should give everybody everything for free and then democrats are a little more reasonable donald trump swept the white house by bucking the republican establishment and putting out a message far different than what the g.o.p. has said in recent years and it seems that now the democratic party is facing a similar subject rainy and shake up the democratic presidential primary is lining up to be anything but predictable kaleb mopp and r.t. new york from new york city council kind of that money had leases that the democrats need to support the cons have already picked. the really see this war going on the democratic party between the progressive and center it's no secret the democratic party is the party of the corporate his party is the party of big donor
and you see them getting very very nervous bernie really represents change he's already the front runner he already has the structure he's raising enough money and he's raising enough money with small carnations and that's really really key he took campaign finance for our democratic party needs to look at what it takes to take a hard look at itself and you know who are they are they are they going to be like the republicans and basically be a party for wealthy people they need to look at the landscape and and basically. you know promise their own party and promised the world that if. if a candidate up there running and is doing well and is being supported and becoming the front runner they need to support that particular order no matter what that's really what should happen through a vote a long way away well not a long way i spose to one how many much soon a european elections just a month away now with tensions running high in the u.k.
over the ongoing brit saga this seems to be at least one person who's benefit in the face here is again of the leave campaign nigel farage recent days have seen his newly founded bricks it party storm the polls setting it on course for victory and my the twenty third party share the edwards stuff as the details. newly formed breck's it party has come out on top of the european election polls which are due to happen on may the twenty third now it really does seem as though the country is rather angry with the state of play at the moment with the delay and it's being reflected in the poll breakdown now more than half of tory voters have abandoned the party and so the government and the opposition are both trailing behind with labor at twenty two percent and the tories at seventeen percent while the bracks at party tops both of them with twenty three percent so we're seeing rather good statistics here for. is making a difference he is making an impact and drawing some attention remember five years
ago he led ukip to first place in the european elections and it was the premier used to believe campaigns twenty sixteen referendum when now he is back in the spotlight by forming his own party where ukip is now under fire and today's figures really do suggest at the break that party is stealing votes from former ukip voters plus tory voters who are really angry with trees and maze failure to deliver bricks it but the ukip knew its leader which is gerrard backed and he insists that they remain the true bricks that party. a real. party are really going to want to close down the previous party. the party will reach me. and we will move the party to services can't vote for their own party so they vote for . the tory party we are a real party this is the right decision these are. the different social classes for
this country. well the e.u. won't exactly be thrilled to have their parliament packed with year or skeptics we heard earlier this week from the european union warning that britain could poison the union because of important votes they could be vetoed an important discussions could be blocked. and by euro skeptic any piece and as i say in the fast pace they don't even want to remain at within the union but as i say that your matic changes to the polling results day by day make it really hard to predict what is to come in the european elections former british m.p. george galloway says support for most of faraj is the voters' way of demanding breaks it i predict to you know the national for odgers bricks that party is going to win the european elections hands down sweep the boards crush ukip wrote of the room in our parties the working class are going to vote for nigel farage you can mark your card on the that's why our party that's only one week called is
coverly miles ahead in the opinion polls to win an election that's only about six weeks away it's whether you demand breaks it now or whether you side with the obfuscators those who are doing everything that they can and in plain sight to cheat the british people of the result that they voted for in the brics that referendum of twenty six. well ahead here not international president goes against the grain and praises effort aspire rebel general in libya just one of the stories about one of the few we come back. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy to. let it
be an arms race. spearing dramatic development only. exist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very. time to sit down and talk. assets on their books terry they're referring to bonds at a price of one hundred cents on the dollar but don't have a sale value in the market greater than maybe one penny on the dollar so again this departure dorian gray economy all these quotes on the central bank balance sheets if you add them all up i think the central banks have something like fifty to fifty five trillion dollars of what they call assets might be worth mcdonald's hamburger with no collateral value whatsoever worthless that's a fact. on
twenty the morning saturday morning mosco time now the united states recognizes the role rebel leader general have played in fighting terrorism in libya says the white house itself to president trump and the commander spoke of phone partly a move that goes against the usual western stunts only libya crisis. president donald trump spoke on april fifteenth twenty nineteen with field marshal who leif to discuss ongoing come to terrorism efforts to achieve peace and stability in libya the president recognizes field-marshal have to our significant role in fighting terrorism and securing libya's oil resources and the to discuss the shared vision for libya's transition to a stable democratic political system it's interesting because the conversation according to the white house happened on monday so we're just now getting this statement you would think that this guy would be seen as an enemy because the u.s.
has been working and it's really played a part in libya's government in recent years but instead apparently trump has talked to this guy and he was actually allies with gadhafi and that in the sixty's and they overthrew the government in one nine hundred sixty nine and then he ended off he had a falling out and also in the cia came and rescued him he came to the united states in one nine hundred ninety became a u.s. citizen and lived in virginia right near the cia's headquarters and then all of a sudden he went back to libya in two thousand and eleven and he played a crucial role in overthrowing the government of gadhafi so he successfully overthrown the libyan government twice u.s. taxpayers have paid for u.s. involvement in libya for all of these years and know all of a sudden we've got a government that's backed by the u.s. and the u.s. is also trying to work with the guy who is trying to overthrow the government and u.s. has been involved in libya since two thousand and eleven so if they were going to pursue a stable democratic system one they've done that already has been in turmoil since twenty eleven when their leader moammar gadhafi was killed now the country is
governed by two rival centers one and to brooke led by general after the other in tripoli but by the un the crisis of the country's escalated in previous weeks to as reported by the general launched out of friends of against tripoli according to the latest figures provided by the world health organization during what happened more than two hundred were killed in an escalation almost a thousand wounded we spoke to alexandra bruno independent political analyst and libya. but what this talk now between the libyan general and the american president could actually mean but on the seeds. i don't think he's interested in democracy nor do i think president drummer for that matter other european governments really care that much about the mark received in libya i think what everybody cares about is stability in libya which is something that has evaded that country since the nato. vision and facilitation. civil
war in two thousand and eleven when they removed the gadhafi government the west is very concerned about the spread of terrorism and the potential that the mind waves continue to come from libya will bring terrorists into european territory. facebook's put a permanent ban on some of the u.k.'s biggest right wing groups hundred new category defined as dangerous individuals and organizations individuals and organizations who spread hate or attack or call for the exclusion of others on the basis of who they are have no place and facebook under our dangerous individuals and organizations policy we ban those who proclaim a violent or hateful mission or are engaged in acts of hate or violence so since all the groups banned on the platform are accused of having far right or extreme views and they've become infamous for promoting negative attitudes towards certain
groups in society the ban is groups like the english defense league the british national party in britain first many of the organizations affected have been given a reaction yet but the british national party has levelled its own accusations against facebook one thousand nine hundred eighty four is here who next why the so afraid of the truth we survived before the fascist facebook page and we will continue to survive media commentator neil wallis and political and social commentator mo and so broke down the issues surrounding facebook's latest decision . i'm very skeptical about a company like facebook group run by a bunch of. billionaires from silicon valley coming from the classic liberal elite. background then are they really good people we would appoint guardians of this sort of thing do we really trust their judgment are we meant to sit around and wait for laws to be implemented we need to tackle these people the methods that we
use for tackling the likes of our own hard aroon street. preachers and their online . forums for doing all of their hate preaching we need to apply that same principle to the likes of the e.t.l. of britain first and the national front what this is really is an enormous bout of virtue signalling by an appalling company facebook and instagram who are using it purely. a fig leaf for the fact that frankly over the last few years they have an appallingly laughable policy about keeping evil people off social media the real truth of the matter is this these are not small problems we knew already from twenty eleven and twenty twelve and as brave killed what was it seventy seven people wounded two hundred nine people in the norway terror attacks he had openly admitted and it was in the dossier that was came out in the court
evidence and was held to be correct he met with the senior leadership team he met with e.t.l. on rhetorical strategies the idea was to have the street gangs these radical people online to radicalize people online like terrorists why is it why is it that he has taken eight years since those socialist you would call them signal virtue signallers socialist labor movement youngsters kids that were slain in norway they're linked to either why did taken eight years the government's done nothing the tories have done nothing you know why they might did now is because they're under tremendous more pressure than ever before about the lack of social responsibility they have created this. the sought international furiously more who are covering today check out this weekend to.
join me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. we came here where you were before you came here when you live well death row in many u.s. states capital punishment is still practiced convicted prisoners can spend he is waiting for execution but most of the time the victims' families they are very much in favor the death penalty there are some people because of what they did have given up the right to live among us some even proven innocent up to years on death row and how many more exonerations is it going to take before we as a society realize that this is not working and we actually do something about. trump said many times that you know we got let's say advantages you know with
moving the embassy to jerusalem there with the mission of jerusalem as our capital and he said that there would be something few things that israel will not like either so this is why i think the palestinians should come with opening the minds to the to the negotiations. redactors a comedy show where americans in america covering american jews are called foreign agents. was mostly makes sense that if you get a call comedians for an agent. then you might as well call journalists and publishers criminals as you know julian a son has been arrested and is now locked away in british custody the us government
wants act through diet him for the crime of revealing our crimes so the good crime of showing people are crimes yeah and you have to admit that is a pretty thing for julian to do come on man just let us kill a few hundred thousand innocent people without you all blab blab about it let us torture some bugs don't be a narc my. speed. so where the sun is on the verge of being shipped here to be tortured now is a good time to go through all of the incredibly important revelations from wiki leaks let's start with the most famous one the collateral murder video showing us u.s. air crew gunning down a rocky civilians they murdered between twelve and eighteen innocent people and you can hear in the video they were having all ball doing it they were loving it and two of the people they murdered were reuters journalists so you would think maybe
you reuters although all the media are lags maybe reuters would try their hand from there. and fight for a songes freedom but no their head is firmly planted in their eyes like a like a vice grip of like joe biden's hand on a young girl shoulder all right it is on their on their. zero people have been arrested for the collateral murders yet julian assange has been arrested for revealing them moving on wiki leaks brought us to guantanamo bay procedures showing that many of the prisoners were completely innocent and that some were hidden from red cross officials because you know when you're torturing innocent people you i don't want to do it in peace and quiet away from the away from the prying eyes it's very easy to get distracted and then you lose your place and then you've got to start all over ok none of the soldiers torturing innocent people a good mole have been arrested.
