11:02 am
profiteer himself and profiteers poteat the government and he accused matusow the knee of being the one who was driving the governments in to crisis. we need to get all of to the parliamentary debate is over we'll go to the president of the republic to officially communicate the end of this government and tendon my resignation this prime minister. well salvini had cooled 2 weeks ago for snap elections amidst the summer holidays in italy saying that the coalition government as it stood was simply workable saying that he just couldn't work under the constraints of back government and he said later to launch today in the senate a blistering attack. through. the world of business of what the man is those that produce things but it's really demands action so the only thing that is really cannot afford is to waste time and anyone who is wasting time is doing so
11:03 am
because they're afraid of losing their seat we asked that we vote as soon as possible and the italians would choose a government to govern us. well the coalition government was formed back in june of 2018 and it was put in or pretty or coupling between the left wing party of the 5 star movement and the anti immigration anti establishment party over the league the 2 coming together to form that government back in june of last year following the elections in march since then what we have seen is a rather rocky road that the partner is having several disagreements including recently about a railway link between france and italy what also has happened is there's been a reversal in the fortunes of the 2 parties since those elections about 14 months ago back then we saw the 5 star movement taking the lion's share of the vote compared to the league and now it seems to have flipped on its head with poll
11:04 am
suggesting if a vote was held today that the league that's material things party would take some 38 percent of the boat significantly higher than what the polls say would happen for the fall. stall movement so what does this all mean for it to be now well that's perhaps the $1000000.00 question there is the chance that the fine stall movement to austin the biggest party could now go into another coalition government of the parties including the democratic party led by its release for much crime in the stomach to you know renzi and that was something that the materials said v.v. actually painted about today when he launched his own attack in the senate we could also see a technocrat government or a national unity government or of course that could be the snap elections there was a lot to play for and we'll be finding out and keeping our eye on this over the coming hours and days. charlotte even if he is sitting across the latest for us thank you. the u.s.
11:05 am
has conducted its 1st test of a 500 kilometer cruise missile a type previously banned for over 30 years and very now defunct arms control treaty between moscow and washington russia's foreign minister claimed the u.s. was preparing for the test long before the treaty expired on the 2nd of august. and has more. well we have official word from the pentagon that indeed there has been a test of a missile that would have violated the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty that treaty has now expired and the usa has conducted a test of a missile that would have violated it here's what we heard from the pentagon the department of defense conducted to fly test of the conventionally configured ground cruise missile the u.s. west coast sunday the test missile exited its ground mobile launcher and accurately in practice target after moving $500.00 km on to his own flight now the test was conducted on san nicolas island off the coast of california we understand
11:06 am
furthermore that the test was announced on august 2nd the very day that the i.n.f. treaty expired now the official reason for the united states withdrawing from the i.n.f. treaty was that they accused russia of violating that agreement now russia has said they did not and denies violating this agreement we also heard from russian president vladimir putin who emphasized that russia won't be the 1st to boost its military if the usa were not to escalate following the withdrawal of the treaty this is what the russian president said if we receive verified information that the us has finished developing and started producing these systems russia will be forced to begin its own full scale development of similar missiles so even after the united states withdrew from the i.n.f. treaty we did not see an escalation from russia however the united states has proceeded to test this missile that would have violated the treaty now it's
11:07 am
important to remember that the i.n.f. treaty was signed in 1987 and it was a key moment in the scaling down in deescalation and eventually end of the cold war however that i.n.f. treaty that banned nuclear and missiles of a certain length is no longer in effect now russia has repeatedly reached out to the united states for dialogue around this issue but so far the conversation hasn't seemed to start. and it seems donald trump's been eager to strengthen america's nuclear capability for quite a while at least since he was president elect in 2016 well before his administration started making noise about alleged russian treaty violations and the same goes for parts of the us establishment. the united states must regain the strategic advantage by expediting the development and deployment of a new generation of ground launched missiles now the department of defense will be able to conduct does research and development activities bento to an f.
11:08 am
treaty so the department of defense will still have some building dos system they couldn't before united states has said that this is not nuclear capable and the united states is planning for another test probably in november this one is somewhere between 508000 kilometers a range but the one that they're testing in the member is miscreants 300-4000 kilometers or range that's another one this year is a very unfortunate moves that have been going on for the past couple of years at least well we can actually dated back to 2001 with the announcement that the u.s. is going to clear the a.b.m. treaty there's only one major nonproliferation treaty remaining the new start treaty which ends and 2021 and the united states has already indicated that it will almost certainly call out of that one also or not when there is that one which means we are on the verge of nuclear anarky. the u.s.
11:09 am
attorney general william barr has removed the acting director of u.s. prisons from his post after the recent death of disgrace millionaire geoffrey epstein some lawmakers have praised the decision amid concern over the conditions at the jail where he took his own life. i've seen was convicted of pedophilia back in 2007 and at the time he was sentenced to 13 months in prison as part of a deal signed by then u.s. attorney alexander acosta i've seen had many friends in high places among them donald trump bill clinton and prince andrew at the time of his death he was awaiting trial for sex trafficking offensives he was being held at a facility reserved for the most dangerous criminals among them the drug chapo scene had been taken off suicide watch despite having made a recent attempt on his own life we spoke to his lawyer mark furnish he thinks conditions at the jail may have pushed him to the edge. the
11:10 am
conditions to which he was subjected would buckle even the knees of the strongest among us it's this is one of the toughest federal pretrial detention facilities in the country and the conditions are inhumane epstein was subjected to conditions that were similar to those of guzman but not remotely justified by his character or what he was accused of because he was not. a violent individual like chapman chapo was alleged to have been and he's not a guy who has escaped from prior facilities like guzman was alleged to have done so one would be comparing apples and oranges to liken the 2 to each other but yet their conditions of confinement were strikingly similar and there's something fundamentally wrong with that and what's fundamentally wrong with that is that geoffrey abstain did not belong in that facility to begin with. just my own
11:11 am
personal opinion it wouldn't surprise me to learn of anything that might have happened with jeffrey epstein and in my view at that in that facility the real story the real miracle is that we don't hear about these sort of things more about murdered pretrial detainees or suicidal pretrial detainees because the facility. is barbaric and it's a whole it's it's like i don't use the word lightly lightly but it's sort of like an american go log for people who have not yet been convicted of anything so the real shock here is that we don't hear about deaths at pretrial oppressive onerous pretrial detention facilities like the m.c.c. more often. any of us could one day find ourselves rightly or wrongly on on the. business and of of the united states department of justice and nobody
11:12 am
nobody sued should be subjected to the conditions that epstein was exposed to for many reasons one of which is that compromises your mental and physical functioning and you can't assist adequately in preparing your own defense and it crushes people we don't really know what happened to mr epstein but certainly i believe personally that being a locked in a facility like that under extraordinary conditions would logically wreak havoc with one's mind and body so i certainly i certainly believe that they personally that they could have played a role absolutely i mean i think we would be foolish to to deny that but again one doesn't want to treat the symptom while ignoring the disease and the disease is how people are routinely denied bail with
11:13 am
a shocking ease given the laws that congress passed allowing prosecutors and judge to do that epstein did not belong locked up pending trial and he didn't belong in a hellhole like that before he had been convicted of anything. western media outlets are warning russian radiation monitoring stations have gone silent following an explosion earlier this month at a military site in the country's north and a question about has been digging deeper into the story. 2 russian radiation money touring stations have resumed operation and this news follows a number of alarming reports that were made earlier by a number of foreign news media claiming that several russian radiation money touring stations went offline allegedly after a nuclear accident that happened in russia north on august 8th now the wall street journal wrote that 4 stations that were designed to detect nuclear radiation all
11:14 am
went silent right after the blast the article raised concerns that russia was attempting to conceal evidence from the explosion at a missile test site the wall street journal quoted. both the executive director of the comprehensive nuclear. nation we receive data from monitoring stations around the world now he per jack to the potential path of the plume from the explosion and posted it on his twitter feed now right after the accident russia send special access very to the site and to monitor the situation and just yesterday the country's president vladimir putin said that there was no threat of a radiation leak. but there is new and there's new spike in british and levels experts cite including independent ones monitoring the situation i receive reports from both military and civilian specialists and there's no significant change there . to avoid any surprises. me
11:15 am
the explosion off a missile and then with an eyes a top power source killed 5 people and injured and now the 3 now right after the accident there were indeed very few details available on what happened and that mostly fueled western tabloid so with the rumors of a true novel like disaster whisper is a radiation leak also appearing in the media with sound. if in writing about the number of the disease to being higher now later the russian nuclear agency issued a report revealing that the accident happened on a c. platform after a serious of trials and that there was no threat of a radiation leak twitter and facebook say they've done their part to thwart china's times to undermine the protest movement in hong kong after the break we'll look at who could be behind the demonstrations.
11:16 am
trace. gapping and the spread is widening into what i call the interest rate apartheid if you're in the wrong side of the premise of geoffrey epstein you end up in a band to stand of extortion ery credit card rates if you're a friend of jeffrey epstein then you get the insider rate of negative and you get paid to lend money or to borrow money excuse me from the bank. seemed wrong. but i. just don't hold. any. get to shape out these days. and indeed equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
11:17 am
my. comeback social media platforms twitter and facebook say they blocked a number of chinese accounts for trying to undermine the protests and hong kong. we are disclosing a significant stayed back to informational pression focused on the situation hong kong this disclosure consists of 936 a cancer region 18 from within the people's republic of china over all these accounts were deliberately and specifically attempting to sow political discord in hong kong including undermining the legitimacy and political positions of the protest movement on the ground we removed 7 pages 3 groups and 5 facebook accounts
11:18 am
involved in coordinated inauthentic behavior as part of a small network that originated in china and focused on hong kong. the protest movement started back in june over draft legislation allowing the extradition of suspects to mainland china the demonstrations have since brought into other political issues over the last 11 weeks release have frequently turned violent with police using tear gas and rubber bullets against protesters are changed on one quarter takes a closer look at what might be motivating the protesters. freedom fair elections democracy it's words like these you'll find throughout the western media coverage of the protests in hong kong but the reality of it is all much more complicated.
11:19 am
it's not just politics motivating the violence racial slurs against people from mainland china can be heard throughout the crowds and seen graffitied on official buildings protesters have also been seen brandishing the infamously racist pepe the frog me an internet hate symbol and this is enough phobic violence has even spilled over to protests in other countries. this anti china extremism comes from a concept called hong kong exceptionalism the idea that hong kong has more in common with the west than with china because of its british colonial past and that ideologies it here in sa are not exactly shy about their love for all things anti china 6 6. despite all the american flags and anthem singing donald trump says he had no idea
11:20 am
why protests were being blamed on the u.s. but his cabinet might have an explanation since they've been meeting with one of the opposition's main icons jimmy lie i'm hit. appreciation lies a self-made billionaire who's made a huge mark on hong kong's opposition movement he landed himself in hot water with beijing back in 2012 when his newspaper published an ad portraying pregnant chinese women as locusts and he's very open about his feelings for american values we need to know that america is behind us but back in our some america is showing moral authority because we are the only place in china which shares your values and is fighting the same battle you have with china but there's another younger and not so rich rebel leader at play here too joshua wong a fresh 22 year old face of revolution a face loved in many corridors of washington to marco rubio was so in all he nominated wong for a nobel peace prize leave it to washington to nominate
11:21 am
a leader of violent protests for peace when it suits an agenda the us is very determinately supporting these protesters every arm of the corporate media. radio television social media is is raising them to and always referring to them as pro-democracy protesters where they're not at all this has nothing to do with democracy and they are determined to sabotage in every way that they can any normal relations between china with hong kong and it it is creating intentionally a great deal of confusion among young people who have been pulled into this against their own interests. we've asked the u.s. state department and leaders of the hong kong protest movement to comment on these alleged links we've highlighted so far we have not received any responses. a

as are those of the kaiser report he caught me. keep my twitter followers enraged stacey i thought you were going to say scared. well i want to talk about corruption because as we all have seen in the past week or 2 that we went through the looking glass in many regards the corruption the global financial system monetary system the negative rates and all that sort of stuff but when this jeffrey epstein suicide situation happened it was quite remarkable that the universal opinion immediately at least until people started filtering themselves
11:29 am
but immediately there were the likes of washington post new york times and n.b.c. sort of journalists on twitter scaring the population going oh my god like. this guy was murdered you know so then they all said oh it's all a conspiracy theory but the fact is that this could happen that the corrupt people he was blackmailing perhaps well never know what truly was the whole story behind the situation of jeffrey epstein but because now conveniently all of the revelations will no longer happen so i want to talk about the corruption that we see all around us now since 2008 when barack obama was elected and came to the rescue of the global financial system and offered hope to the american people that something will change nothing has ever changed that it was never help for the people it was never help for the population it was always.
