5:04 am
fight with the authorities by early submission but they are anything but done the american flag waving taskforce among the hong kong protesters are sending their poster boy to convince us legislators to do something big on autonomy. well for those of you having difficulty making out the essence of this boilerplate script it's the human rights and democracy act and it's meant to show beijing that the us is serious about fighting for hong kong's rights the united states must make clear to china that its interference in hong kong is affairs will have consequences this month we must possibly cameron bipartisan on consumer rights and democracy act the bill was devised in response to what the u.s.
5:05 am
has been calling a chinese infringement on the region's autonomy and requires for america to review own calm special status annually and if that status is ever revoked the region's autonomy would not so much been friendly to but rather new to dust since the early ninety's hong kong has been enjoying huge advantages for wearing washington's special status badge. and some believe that a small yet vocal group of protesters is laying an explosive tripwire for the whole region which will not enjoy the konami chain reaction if it's ever triggered in a way this leave the just so difficult of the biggest economy in the world that
5:06 am
other states will always just ordered. well it was going to hold a great deal but it's not just the whole bali there are thousands of you notice this don't believe in all of it would likewise be affected of course it's a political war because. it calls only or percent of charlus economy he was. told of the deal years ago in me a call to all more as far as equality is also. all but low is always sent but on the other hand of course we law i would wish the one country to see so as to help with the internationalization that really with. all american legislators say the bill is designed to punish mainland china specifically as protesters want sean not to but while the end goal may very well be punishing
5:07 am
beijing in pursuit of a geo political supremacy washington my just overall look at the collateral damage . also today us democratic presidential candidate joe biden is pushing his bid for the white house with a focus on the fight against racism on sunday he delivered a speech at an african-american church but just days earlier during presidential debates when pressed on segregation and the legacy of slavery he switch the subject and lectured african americans on how they should bring up children as he saw it kellam open reports on it. joe biden formally the vice president is now running in the democratic primary enjoys a huge amount of support from the african-american voters and he wants them to know he really cares about them we bring social workers into homes and parents to help them deal with how to raise their children it's not they don't want to help they don't want they don't know quite what to do play the radio make sure the television the scrutiny make sure you have the record player on the phone make sure the kids
5:08 am
hear words a kid coming from a very poor school or a very poor background who hear 4000000 words fewer spoken by the time they get there the record player now he seems a couple decades behind on modern technology but it's also a tad bit condescending don't you think now some are calling it parent shaming biden is the liberal racist why dems better start calling this out because black women are watching if joe biden isn't forced out of the running now i give up 1st he looks into the camera and laughs at the mention of racial inequality in us schools and we could racists that he describes black homelite and parenting in a way that is stunningly ignorant and insulting drew biden's son on how to address the literacy of slavery was appalling and to scorn now this isn't the 1st time that joe is flubbed an answer when it comes to a racial issue he made some remarks when barack obama was selected as the
5:09 am
democratic party candidate in 2008 that he probably meant to sound like a compliment i mean you got the 1st mainstream african-american who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice looking guy joe biden's comments point to an increasing phenomenon in us society being referred to as a liberal racism joe biden is not burning a cross or arguing that non-whites are inferior but he does seem to have a touch of a white savior complex he comes across as condescending to those he thinks he's hell. a study refers to it as a competence downshift and joe biden is not the only one what liberals may unwittingly draw negative stereotypes demean themselves down in a likely well meaning folksy but ultimately patronizing attempt to connect with the outgroup democratic party is pretty put on a list economy you can look you see order policies from the welfare state it is put into place to live thinks their legs generally aren't as smart. and it really would
5:10 am
point to is the democrats projecting a lot of their own insecurities upon everyone knows d.c. everyone is races everyone sees everyone is all those days and if they're when it's really them they feel that way and in china to say that it's the other side actually feels that way for decades the democratic party has been promising to help minorities in the united states but do party leaders actually see them as equal members of society well joe biden's recent comments have got plenty of people asking that question. r.t. new york votes in israel to the country deciding the fate of incumbent prime minister benjamin netanyahu and on him president and repeated parliamentary elections taking place that he's locked in a tight contest with his rival benny gantz earlier i spoke to our correspondent there in jerusalem. well known political parties are expected to be part of the next israeli parliament all the israeli knesset and the competition here really boils down to 2 men the incumbent prime minister benjamin netanyahu and his right
5:11 am
wing likud party and his former defense chief benny guns and his small same to lift blue and white party not as the same scenario 6 months ago when we had the previous elections which netanyahu won but despite winning them he was unable to form a majority $61.00 mandates out of $120.00 parliament seats many suspect that the same scenario could unfold and so regardless of whether it's guns or whether it's the time we are who we might have a son arya and it's increasingly likely that nigel's able to form a majority government or so give me some more ideas that have. been doing to boost his support base of like well like any politician that's fighting for his political survival netanyahu has been making a lot of promises the most recent of which is that he said should he be reelected he will and makes west bank settlements and the dog in valley and for anyone who thought that the peace process between israelis and palestinians wasn't already did this certainly was the last nail in the coffin he has also started negotiating a u.
5:12 am
s. israel defense treaty i had a call with prime minister netanyahu to discuss the possibility of moving forward with a mutual defense treaty between the united states and israel that would further the tremendous alliance between our 2 countries thank you my dear friend president trump the jewish state has never had a greater friend in the white house the american president donald trump has been playing an enormous role in the israeli elections that in april just before the previous elections he made the bold statement that the americans recognize the israeli hold over the golan heights and this is despite the fact that a contravenes international law and has remained a contentious issue ever since the heights were taken over by israel from syria back in 1967 in a moment i will sign a presidential proclamation recognizing. israel's sovereign right over the golan heights netanyahu has been using trump in his election campaign you just need to drive down any street in this country and you see both leaders beaming from election posters on any of the main streets in israel
5:13 am
a political analyst earns on average around $180000.00 salary a year and yet the support that netanyahu gets from trump which is so much bigger is essentially priceless should this country hate to a 30 lection which is what many here suspect and fear the question is just what else is trump going to promise in a town yahoo the israeli parliament was dissolved in april in a dispute over the growing influence of the old ultra-orthodox jewish minority the country's former defense and foreign ministers refused to join a coalition of the door labor has not spoken opponents of the military draft privileges handed out to the ultra orthodox community there they could avoid compulsory army service if it rolled in religious studies.
5:14 am
leave in accuses the ultra religious minority of seeking to impose jewish religious law on the secular majority they've already managed to impose bombs on public transport on the sabbath strict marriage laws and gender segregation was people in tel aviv how it's affecting their daily lives them. the ultra orthodox establishment have a very strong hold of the israeli politics in israeli government i think it affects our lives. that the orthodox make their own rules. they want to make themselves it different from the other people i don't think kid they're affected too much except from probably things like. public transportation in israel in in saturday i don't have buses instead on
