it was unbelievable what we had we had everything. i tried for 3 years to get on to no avail. in a league video and anchored a major u.s. network claims the station quashed her explosive interview linking powerful people to the convicted paedophile jeffrey epstein. he says there seems to be some type of network of people. you know that that is covering up for this and she says she hasn't got all of it in other news to shape the week whistleblowers become the new frontline in the political battle being waged in washington as a bill to protect their identities is blocked in the u.s. senate and tackling hate crime in hospitals health trust in england plans to retire
at racism by threatening to withhold treatment for people who view staff put the issue up for debate. a mother was a nurse. for most of the laws for the n.h.s. and nothing was done on the body piece that she she. she said to treat people should treat people. without question. hello good morning the latest news in a look back at what's been happening over the last 7 days to you watch and we can hear an r.t. international now a leaked video appears to show america's a.b.c. news channel shelved a story on the disgraced. 3 years ago the network anchor was recorded ranting about the station question her explosive interview with an accuser of the convicted paedophile in it a number of powerful figures were implicated in his crimes the following is part of
the video that was attained by the transparency group project for. that story for 3 years i've had to say if you would for any roberts the palace found out that we have her whole allegations about prince andrew and threatened us a 1000000 different ways she told me everything she had pictures everything she was a hiding for 12 years we can start it how do we convince her to talk to us it was unbelievable what we had cleared with everything. i tried for 3 years to get it on to no avail and now it's all coming out and i think these new well of revelations and i presume had i was so pissed i have to wonder why did they not air these stories why why were that why was the sheld now this came to us from an insider within the network an insider who currently works at a.b.c. news leaked us this tape she says there seems to be some type of network of people that you know that that is covering up for this and she says she has
a she thought all of it quite telling that this insider leaked this tape to project their it's us and not the washington post the new york times c.b.s. or c.n.n. because they seemed to want to protect the people that were working with jeffrey epstein again amy robach saying that steam was blackmailing people there's a lot of powerful people on those airplanes that amy is 100 percent certain he did not commit suicide i don't know why she won't say that publicly but there she is in the leaked tape on the set of the program saying these things when nobody is looking where i b c news is defended its decision not to broadcast the story stating it didn't meet the editorial standards needed at the time bianca and we wrote back agreed explaining her comments were made and a private moment of frustration at staines lawyer contacted the a.b.c. network at the time to saying the allegations being made by the accuser interviewed by the channel could not be trusted. i simply provided a.b.c. with incontrovertibly evidence proving that jeffrey had
a long history of lying about tipper and al gore her age and other matters and that her credibility could not be counted on so a quick reminder that never have this story developed 66 year old multimillionaire jeffrey epstein was convicted of soliciting prostitution from a minor in 2008 to ms then registered as a sex offender in july this year he was arrested again and was to face trial over the ledge creation of a sex trafficking network charges he repeatedly denied but a month later most found dead in his cell in the parent suicide found a project very task again james o'keefe says that despite a.b.c. saying the allegations were uncorroborated the network doesn't shy away from of high profile cases. you can see how frustrated amy robock when you listen when you watch this tape it directly contradicts what a.b.c. news is saying publicly now about not having enough corroboration there they're
fine airing the allegations against maybe brett kavanaugh for or trump or anybody else but when it comes to bill clinton and some of these folks 'd that are mentioned by amy in this hot mike tape they say they just didn't have enough corroboration i'm not sure how a.b.c. news defines a corroboration when it comes to credible witnesses talking about sexual assault if not the only conclusion i can draw is that a lot of these network executives are very close to the people they were hanging out with jeffrey epstein per amy amy roebuck's. now the u.s. democrats have failed to push through a bill to keep the identity of whistleblowers secret republican senator rand paul blocked the proposal accusing the democrats of spreading selective outrage but it does come as the president's son has tweeted the alleged name of the whistleblower who triggered the trump impatient inquiry saskia taylor reports on the face of those who recently day to speak act in america. for the democrats impeachment must
now seem tantalizingly close all they need is the final piece of damning evidence to seal the deal and to senate minority need to chuck schumer he has come out arguing for the protection of whistleblowers all rother of the one intelligence officer who is inside info could make or break the impeachment dream the calls to make public the whistleblowers identity are despicable whistleblowers should be protected period period that's quite the radical departure from his previous comments on those exposing government to pew says and each day that snowden is allowed to room 3 is another twist in the mary snow. jim is one of the few picked up by the media he chose the path of raising his voice and going clone bull unlike the hundreds of others who chose the path of least resistance you see
they quietly launched official complaints hoping for the system to reform but they were out of luck because as a damning report from an intelligence watchdog shows the cia and n.s.a. would $189.00 out of $190.00 cases of whistleblower complaints by had to send you the link but the report was shot down i wonder if mr schumer praised even remembers all those whistleblowers who ruled against what the name for example rich barlow bring about now living in a trailer in remote montana with his hunting dogs back in the late eighty's bhalo worked for the cia now he found himself in a patriotic dye llama when he uncovered what he said amounted to the u.s. helping pakistan become a nuclear power including by selling band technology and though he followed protocol he became the victim of
a smear campaign disgraced and discredited barely able to scrape together a living i was disgustingly patriotic and i thought the government is allowing pakistan to develop and spread nuclear weapons and i got destroyed for trying to stop it what about a former u.s. marine affronts gayo he thought he'd found a way of reducing the number of u.s. troops dying in iraq as a result of improvised explosive devices all that was needed was a simple swap of patrol vehicles and given that were responsible for over 60 percent of all american losses in the country between 20032008 surely the pentagon would have been interested the response was more of. an automated response. he's not obeying our instructions he's he's gone off the reservation as we often say. and we've got to stop him from doing that and just as it took gail 7 years
to restore his reputation it took just a few months to discredit peter van buren raising 24 years of loyal diplomatic service from poor and found himself on the wrong side of the table when he shed light on state department mismanagement i'm waste in iraq what happens when you're thrown out of the government and blacklisted that you lose your security clearance and it's very difficult to find a grown up job in washington you have to step down a few levels to find a place where they don't care enough about your background to even look into why you washed up there the list of nameless faceless and unrecognized whistleblowers goes on and who to blame them for choosing to do to free fall their complaints because if you follow and manning will snowden's footsteps sure you might end up with your name on a plaque card and become the face of the fight for transparency but you might also
find yourself behind bars and while you're sitting in prison think about how your brothers in arms only have a how to one and 190 chance of success whistleblowing protection should actually exist in all countries because it helps the country to have people tell the truth about corrupt officials united states pretends to have allies that protect whistleblowers but they often either don't work or they are deliberately sordid and certainly the government officials do not want anyone ever telling about things they do illegally the governments are basically wanting to control saying who's in control public opinion they put john kiriakou in print. good for telling that for instance is that the cia was torturing so they normally absolutely do not want to project was in the actually 8 the one who tells the truth about
their illegal activities hume about in my long side the washington elite needs to clarify his position on whistleblowers if you are a whistleblower you need to accept that harassment prison self-imposed exile just being consigned to the forgotten pages of history are all on the cards unless of course you happen to be that rab breed of whistle blower who finds himself in the right place at the right time with just the right exposé. also this week patients who abuse staff at a hospital in western england were told that they could receive lengthy bans from using the n.h.s. the north bristol health trust has launched a red card to racism campaign which could seek treatment refused when it is safe to do so. hard to avoid this the question we are seeing is wrong but we really do need to use it to save god or stop i'm working for colleagues over 60 this
remark or to be able to show this what the campaign aims to cut out a wide range of abuse that hospital staff face aside from racism the national health service will apply 0 tolerance policy to sexism in offensive language and also inappropriate behavior malicious allegations and internet and intentional damage to property patients found to be abusive will encounter a sports like disciplinary system a warning or yellow card will be given on the 1st incident a 2nd time and patients get a red card meaning the treatment will be withdrawn once a patient's condition is safe we got reaction to this story from the national secretary for the english democrats party stephen morris and also from the human bennett he's from the stand up to racism action group. my mother was a nurse for for most of her life for the n.h.s. and nothing was done about the abuse that she see faced and there's no reason why
she should have put up with the abuse of the nursing people in very serious conditions i think a message to tolerance towards it would lead to a level of self control and h.s. is there to treat people it should treat people. without question the issues of sexism racism is a massive can of worms because obviously the hospitals could be in breach of the only quality because obviously a female that he wants to be treated by a female will not be allowed to because it will be deemed a sexist or if you have certain religious views you won't be allowed because it be deemed racist or sexist in some form that you're racist you will have a problem with this because you think it's a normal discourse of normal wear behavior some framed in some ridiculous notion that you've got a freedom to insult and abuse people to lock them up is serious actually most of these people will find that one step behavior is deemed unacceptable people realise they can no longer behave like that is not true that just clogging up the court
system we say people should be prosecuted but you don't want to prosecute it because your actual words was it would only clog up the court system somebody who may have a feel philosophical or religious belief about being treated by women are being treated by a certain person then they have their philosophical and religious beliefs have to be also respected and if the n.h.s. are not going to respect their views then they're going to fall foul of the equality at the n.h.s. was built on immigrant a migrant labor from all over the world she would get many people yes in and my god oh here we go you have no idea it's a bill that is set on the please don't use that because it wasn't built just on that this is ridiculous if somebody says i don't want to be treated like some of these black or asian there's no reason to respect that at all being a race isn't a philosophical view it's just plain wrong only those piece. believe it should be tolerated actually resists any kind of basic principles. of the way it. prosecuted you're talking about people under normal circumstances these are not
normal circumstances where people go into a in a they're in pain they wanted us so these an absolute wide range of circumstances just to say can you come down a bit the can ask you like the situation you want to use a little coward to tell people off i say let's go and prosecuted you didn't want to do that because you said it blocked the court systems are not against prosecute them i think it's easier it's easier for health professionals to give people a warning about their behavior and challenge it without necessarily bringing in the police and the courts i think the people who are racist need to be challenge to and that has to be done in such a way as they can simply understand that their behaviors are sceptical what you need to do is make sure you get them treated get them out reports and then get prosecuted if need be afterwards very simple if you start. out in the hospitals that's gone that's going to a people more. now the syrian president claims that the west
attempt to incite a revolution through sanctions has failed to share a sad shared his thoughts an exclusive interview with r.t. it is the 1st time he's spoken to an international channel in more than a year you can watch it in full here on monday as well as on our website article com but here is a bit more of what he said. did you make of it when the british government sent the royal navy to intercept of the iranian vessel. they said the iranian government said it was with heating oil for syria. from the european union going to hit the poorest people of syria. this winter. exactly 1st of all this is both. the. united kingdom and this is the core meaning of the word regime because regime in
both in going views something similar. yes they wanted to effect the people in syria why because those people expected to rule with against their government during the difference to just all the war but they didn't they were supposed to be supporting the terrorists the moderate rebels with the angels of white helmets but the people didn't this would with their government so they have to suffer they have to pay the price 1st for they have to learn that this. will be others and 2nd this is maybe the last ditch attempt in order to push them to be against big government but they tried to try to before and they didn't work because the people knew the whole story and they know where their interests lie.
now the u.s. government is reportedly investigating the social media platform to talk over security concerns video sharing app is chinese owned and is popular among teenagers it's also one of the few to challenge the monopoly of tech giants facebook and google. i'll be honest with you up until last week i had no idea this thing even exist it take tock tick tock for me simply the sound i associate with the clock well if you feel the same i'll have to tell you either you're getting old like me or it's just
that your online habits need an urgent update take talk a platform to share short videos is now the most downloaded app the king of all apps and instagram twitter and co you've been dethroned just so you know ever heard the song. if it wasn't for his app store majesty the song wouldn't have become a hit you can hear on the radio anywhere in the world but here's something that may surprise old school folks like me even more the king belongs to an asian dynasty tick tock is that chinese app. so that's why the top democrat senator in his late sixty's is more up to speed than me 110000000 americans who have information with and the chinese government could be grabbing every one of them guess what the u.s.
government is already up to reports say they've launched a national security probe into tick talk and the worries are the chinese government could spy through take talk influence through take talk and censor what's on tape talk good god how come the rest of the world hasn't given up american born facebook speaking of the man who introduced the blue f to us all it's only natural he is keen to have a go at his competitors or services like what's up are used by protesters and activists everywhere due to strong encryption privacy protections on tick tock the chinese are quickly around the world mentions of these same protests. censored now just let me show you what the people behind tick-tock have to say about all that our data centers are located entirely outside of china and none of our data is subject to chinese law we are not influenced by any foreign government including the chinese government to talk does not operate in china nor do we have any
intention of doing so in the future oh someone here is either being really does honest or outright paranoid or a bit of both it's time to stick in the us china trade wars i'll tell you what this year has shown these has still it could easily spill over into modern tech slash online territory remember how america once went after i phone killer one of the wall way. want to be still the right word washington even sought jail time for one of wall ways top executives and held google to the wall over android updates anyway for now clocks in. quite a few older ones even in america will be picking the chinese take talk way mr schumer do you have the guts to keep up with the times and join the royal after party. now look at.
it trying to then other news this week the iraqi prime minister has promised a major government shakeup amid ongoing violence in the country more than $260.00 people the thought of being killed since demonstrations started a month ago protesters are demanding a major overhaul of the political system which was established after the u.s. led invasion back in 2003 that hawkins is more. iraq is no stranger to turmoil the country's seen little piece and even less the billet since the us led invasion of 2003 mass protests and violence of regulating gulf the state of these though are the worst since the overthrow of saddam hussein 16 years ago.
hundreds killed dozens in just one week by live ammunition many thousands injured amid a heavy crackdown by security forces or the government's deployed special forces imposed curfews and an internet blackout across the whole country but that's just angered crowds even more roads and bridges have been blocked by demonstrators who have also tried to take over buildings both in the capital baghdad and across other cities why is this happening with these protests address years of grievances corruption unemployment poor public service is there a source of anger across many countries but in iraq things should be different iraq should be thriving the country's oil revenue has exceeded 850000000000 in the post saddam years with production nearly doubling despite the internal strife with iraq
estimated to hold almost 10 percent of the globe's proven reserves its prospects should be growing a report by the international energy agency predicts revenue to hit nearly 5 trillion dollars in just over 15 years time and optimistic estimates set back by years of conflict but you get the picture so what happened former u.s. defense secretary robert gates stated on a visit to baghdad that a new era was just. around the corner more than ever i believe the goal of a secure and stable and democratic iraq is within reach almost 12 years on things couldn't be further from the truth to make sense of postum to mention iraq and where exactly is grievances lawyer let's speak to nicholas j. davis author of blood on our hands the american invasion and destruction of iraq mr davis thanks so much for joining us today good to have you with us now these protests they've been going on since mid october where they show no sign of slowing
down indeed there's been a government crackdown condemned by many organizations where do these grievances that law i that are spinning out would such violence all over the country the people of iraq you know as still you know have really been ignored and all this they're still suffering from the absolute destruction and economic devastation of iraq by the us invasion and occupation there were large state owned companies that that was the very basis of the iraqi economy and they supported this you know mixed mixed economy beyond that that was all completely destroyed unemployment under the u.s. occupation at one point breached at least 60 percent essential leave the sort of. you know pyramid of power in you know occupied and
post occupation iraq where you know this tiny group of u.s. and iranian backed exiles has you know with u.s. and iranian support created a monopoly on power that the vast majority of the disenfranchised alienated people of iraq have never supported. and finally a small seaside town the southwest of england is. swept up in a storm of controversy over this is gesture in its longstanding nickname smacks of white supremacy or something that has left locals battle. i. do. this
wording is not to remove the town council could be classed as a racist white supremacist therefore this issue should be rectified immediate. all who have traveled through the delicious scenery of north devon must needs know the little white town a bit if it. shocking . i think it's true that. it's a little white it's always greener more nothing. you have just done more than. everybody. can imagine why it would get. them believable greg. and. i. you can watch and wait here in r.t.
join me every thursday on the alex simon chill and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics small business i'm show business i'll see you then. you know world of big partisan modifiers and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. i have interviewed limits of ian world and rape is
a very very traumatizing thing to have happen but i've never seen trauma like i've seen from women who are veterans who have suffered military sexual trauma. i cannot remember how many times a young female marine that had been raped or sexually assaulted told me that she looked at these guys as your brother or the suspect as your brother it's a kin to what happens in a family with incest because you know in the military when we're functioning at our best piece of unit with brothers and sisters of the band of brothers and sisters i mean we are family when that bond of trust is violated. the wound penetrates to the very most inner part of one's soul one psyche.
