products are safe adding that health regulators worldwide. islamic state may have been all but routed out from syria but you hottest are still wreaking havoc in the country the latest incarnation of what was the front has attacked syrian army positions in northern province the last rebel stronghold in the country but by rebranding the extremists appear to afford some in the west more gusty explains. this late in the civil war by any measure this offensive was huge he had to do that shower more h.g.'s widely viewed as al qaeda is winning in syria nusra front fielded hundreds of jihad ists for this offensive according to russian intelligence 30 pick up trucks equipped with various guns 7 tanks for a.p.c.'s to jihad move beals or vehicles packed with explosives and driven
11:07 am
by suicide bombers as i said a huge offensive aimed at taking a government held town and the border. according to the russian command the syrians held out against 3 waves the jihad the stews in more than $100.00 fighters for tanks most of their pickup trucks and also reportedly launched missiles at the russian air base in may mean though those that got close were shot down un security council is none too pleased russia and the regimes decision to launch air strikes sends
11:08 am
a terrible signal of disregard toward the u.n. political process russia has claimed this so called return it she strikes surgical i quote surgical in their precision i hope i do not need medical treatment in moscow if surgical accuracy means what we've seen. we refuse to consider terrorists as untouchable and will continue to fight them despite the objections of some of our partners united states reader it's that any escalation in violence in northwest syria would destabilize. the region. we have our own view on who is destabilizing the region. both sides blame each other for this latest escalation fighting had been building up escalating for days now and as often happens in the rebels' jihad this crying foul saying ass adds gassing them we continue to see signs that the assad regime may be renewing its use of chemical weapons the regime's attacks against the communities of northwest syria must end
11:09 am
remarkably nowhere in their press statement does the us mention al qaida though age c.s. denies any affiliation they were branded change the name from nusra front but that is seen as a rules to avoid harsh as scrutiny nothing is changed in their behavior still executing infidels fielding suicide bombers so imagine our surprise when we did some digging and found that the initial source of these chemical attack allegations which so concerned the us initial source was h.t.s. looser front al qaida worth noting though is that the u.s. is saying they can't verify anything bombing attacks which have been indiscriminate in very vicious have sent some 152200000 people in it most of whom are already
11:10 am
internally displaced people to move again to temporary housing and create a huge burden on our very broad humanitarian effort that we in the internet rest of the international community are making so we're watching this very closely also the reports of chemical weapons use so far we cannot confirm it but we are watching it it's an interesting situation the u.s. europe allies spending billions infiltrating bombing fighting isis al qaida in afghanistan. in iraq in somalia or the middle east yet in syria's neighbor al qaida is biggest stronghold taking their side if in directly demanding that the syrian government leave them alone taking seriously their claims and statements about chemical weapons zeiss a remarkable terrorism specialist jennifer breen says damascus should go on the offensive an adlib. it's not going to be possible to to fight terrorism without
11:11 am
going to the terrorist strongholds and that's absolutely necessary we're talking about a group h.t.s. which is an offshoot of al knows or a link to al qaeda so this is a very serious terrorist organization and it's also a terrorist organization that's in a place with a very large civilian population most of these civilians have been displaced or internally displaced because of the war because of other terrorist organizations and so it's crucial that this area be targeted to to undermine these terrorists i think that the concern is whether chemical weapons have been used or whether there have been any such use of chemical weapons because of the large civilian population that has also been terrorized by the strong hold that allen has or offshoot h.t.s. has on this area. the world's biggest election in india is drawing to an end with the incumbent prime minister narendra modi securing another term here you
11:12 am
can see the latest pictures of the pm celebrating his victory with supporters india has around 900000000 eligible voters over 600000000 cast their ballots modi's main opponent gandhi has conceded defeat. looks at why gandhi dubbed the candidate of the elite failed to make inroads. to have a look at this simple guide modi as a child the prime minister helped his dad sell tea out a railway station ever heard of the caste system in india well his was officially classed as backwards there was even a t.v. show called the journey of the common man showing his tough life path.
11:13 am
now let's compare that to opposition leader who gandhi's background his father was a prime minister preceded by guess who his grandmother his great grandfather was the founder of modern india and what matter the ukase super the cambridge university how's that for a contrast. not seen as a serious challenger to mr not in the mold because dynasty is not it doesn't appear to the young people in the country anymore if you contrast that dynasty off . gandhi let's see that the prime minister noted. who actually has risen from the bottom he comes from the very poor section of society he comes from a cost which is known although back would cause. so given the fact that there is
11:14 am
a lot of appeal for people who come in from the very bottom and rising i think died on. you know the dynasty of the calmness has almost relieved it for the last almost 70 years because completely lost it's of the. year on year it's becoming clear politicians all around the world should have realised being a part of the elite is now out of fashion shall i remind you of what's been going on with the people's voting habits everywhere lately. i want you to imagine how much better our future can be if we did clear independence from the elites who lead us from one financial and foreign policy disaster to another. 800 people what. i'm sure you heard me talking about the

people of beauty. begin a bunch of good people in. russia. and he main task is to bring into the politics of our country a completely new people fresh decent people who actually can. be seen as one. who of late. and i didn't mean the day on the stand. for example it's also back to the hockey nation saw. jump is not ordinary. americans. of course and he has his own way but i think he i think you need to do this and
11:16 am
that maybe. this is see this competing against him that he didn't seem to be coming from the stuff so it was easier for him to send himself as that stepford on the he . was. at the elite but he was the washington stuff what if soon government hopefuls will begin misplacing their elite background stressed like some do with parts of their tax returns. telecom in the program it's revealed the us democrats have spent twice as much as donald trump on our answer with a 2020 presidential race that's the fight many of them claiming they won big money out of politics on that after a break. what is calling his magic. the new type of digital currency the
11:17 am
centralized digital scarcity chancellor. of 2nd for bankers call the genesis blog for reason a civil disobedience a source of optimism because i can control my own financial destiny it's just a new way of coming to consensus it's a game changer in the human history this is columbus discovering a new world this paradigm shifting technology that transforms economics and finance in a heartbeat the apollo 11 landing on to the max and stacey. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic development only really. i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and
11:18 am
talk. here watching r.t. international welcome back and they report has a real that since january us democrats have splashed twice the cash as donald trump on online ads yet at the same time they've been very vocal about rejecting big bucks from lobbyists when it comes to funding their 2020 presidential campaigns hip-hop and steeper. from left wingers like bernie sanders to centrists like joe biden and tamala harris democrats are expressing a unified message of discussed about money and politics i mean i sat with bernie i'm the guy that told them you should accept any money from a super pac because people can't possibly trust you how are middle class guy except if you except so i've actually made a decision since i had that conversation then i'm not going to accept corporate pac checks and i think most americans actually agree that we need to get money out of
11:19 am
politics pete buttigieg has promised to give back the money he received from corporations kemal harris has made similar statements but here's the thing perhaps they don't get direct funding from corporations but they have a cozy relationship with super pacs those are political action committees that are not legally required to disclose their donors let's not forget joe biden's wisdom from a few years back lobbyist are bad people special interest groups are not bad people but guess what they're corrosive. people who accept money from them or bad people but it's human nature while it may not be being broadcast on prime time television but many top democrats have a very close relationship with big financial interests take amala harris for example she has a super pac of her own that is very close with the bank known as citigroup and get tamlyn the banks managing director even hosted
11:20 am
a fundraiser for camilla harris at his apartment as a gesture of friendship kamali even shook hands with his dog pete booed as she she's been hanging out with charles meyer the wall street banking exactly 2 of them have been munching on deli sandwiches kirsten gillibrand seems to be particularly close to big pharma she's already had a fundraiser at the home of a pfizer exec and at this point mark last read the wall street money manager is boasting that he's already met with 10 different democratic candidates at the end of the day candidates need money in. the past there was no candidates who didn't come to new york chicago l.a. for money today there are 2 candidates who aren't doing that elizabeth warren and bernie some does yes when the cameras are rolling the democrats want to fight against wall street and stand up for that forgotten american middle class however behind closed doors they want to get particularly cozy with the big daddy's of american finance capital and in the age of social media that's a lot harder to conceal well this goes to show you yet again the breathtaking
11:21 am
incoherence of the democratic message keep in mind that many of these folks many if not all are very very wealthy and when you hear people who decry you and rail against big money and we're finding out how they're tapping into silicon valley wall street banks the big money the big money people it goes to show you that they are just like everybody else i just choose to lovable progressive liberal trying to get by with a paucity of funds and end if you can help me as we as we fight corporate industrial greed meanwhile behind the scenes there on the phone saying listen can you. hear me with you 1xw5w and 20000000 help me anybody else take your money they're no better or no worse than anybody else 2
