the world's top headlines for this hour welcome to the program here on our i'm live in moscow. time has run out for u.s. lawmakers to agree on federal funding it means the government has now officially shut down the democratic led senate rejected the temporary bills by the republicans that would have delayed obama's health care law as the price to continue funding obama warned the shutdown would have a very real economic impact on real people. reports on this. better all air traffic controllers will remain working so will the majority of the department of homeland security everything from the u.s. coast guard to the transportation security agency will keep operating federal prisons will stay open the state department will keep processing passports but there may be delays social security and medicare payments would keep coming food stamp benefits will be available but many other services under the snap program
5:02 am
that help needy mothers and children would be suspended the u.s. postal service would remain in business federal courts are exempt so cored will remain in session at least until mid october but if the government stay shutdown longer than ten days judiciary jobs would be at risk for furlough active duty military is considered essential so men and women in uniform will stay at work but it's likely paychecks will be delayed that's because even though the military is considered critical about half of the department of defense is not on the chopping block nasa most of its employees would be furloughed a few workers would remain on the job to man mission control the food and drug administration would suspend most safety inspections perhaps taking the biggest hit tourism national parks across the country will close so will museums here in
5:03 am
washington d.c. that includes the smithsonian museums and the national zoo this twenty four hour panda cam would go dark alternately it is up to the executive branch to decide who is essential and who is not right now it looks like roughly eight hundred thousand federal workers many of them here in washington temporarily be out of work in the first government shutdown nearly two decades in washington liz wall are. the last minute or so. on the verge of a shutdown have recently become fairly common in washington let's have a flashback for a couple of the closest calls in recent years for you here when i see for example it was back in two thousand and eleven the closing of the government was a verdict literally one hour before the deadline and after a painful legislative standoff the budget deal was finally agreed that the debt ceiling another nerve racking issue in the summer of twenty eleven that was sending shock waves across america and much of the rest of the world as well but the sky
5:04 am
didn't fall as it was agreed upon just two days before the time was up give us some details here on r.t. it's been seventeen years since the last time the government partially closed its work but it is actually the eighteenth time in the united states history history though it's so-called or taking a spending gap now was in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven that the government was shut down three times as in as many months and gerald celente the publisher of the trends journal he warns that we should be wary of the hype and of the pantomime. it's more theatrical than anything else they keep talking about how it's going to shut down will bring down the economy by one point four percent of the g.d.p. how do they know every percentages of a come up with about anything has always been wrong so this is more theatrical and it's very important to look at this not only as the shutdown but really it's
5:05 am
symptomatic of all of washington go back to two thousand and eleven for two years while we kept hearing about was going over the fiscal cliff going over the fiscal cliff they talked about it so much that standard and poor's they downgraded u.s. credit worthiness and then we had sequestering and next month we're going to have the debt ceiling again this is morsy at tricks it's the it's the the washington drama queens doing what they always do behave in a manner that is unbecoming of professionals and adults. so the essential federal services will continue working despite the shutdown and political commentator brian fox who says washington is quite used to playing games with deadlines. bluff now and i look back and see the same sort of equal opportunities in grandstanding every time with different variations and the
5:06 am
main variation being who's in power losing the white house. political number one from the republicans or is it political number two from democrats and liberals other than who also controls congress so that's the stage. political opportunism. again look out washington d.c. they both have the same. basic platform they're all more for your they're all on board for endless spending for one for corporate welfare one for social welfare they're all on board for surveillance they're on board for the police state. big thing is really just all about. crises deal crisis where a lot of deals are exchanged. analyses online team has listed ten ways the government shutdown could impact america from the looming default to the closure of
5:07 am
museums and while you're about to dot com many other stories you to check out as well you can learn how the global stock markets have been reacting to the budget battle in the u.s. congress that and so much more right now on. our for the meantime here on the program already on the rise the u.k. has to go it alone sentiment is now being fueled by a fresh plan drawing the island nation even further from the mainland european state is off their prime minister david cameron hinted that he wants to withdraw from the european convention on human rights it's long been the subject of irritation for many brits with such measures as insisting u.k. prison is should have the right to vote and allowing foreign criminals to remain in the country indefinitely. takes up the story. david cameron has said clearly that he wants to know that he can keep the country safe and that means being able to chuck out as he said anybody that doesn't have the right to be in the u.k.
5:08 am
and who threatens the u.k. way of life now we don't have to look very soft for examples of when if european convention for human rights has been a real thought in the side of the british government there's the very famous case of the radical hate preacher abu qatada now he famously avoided extradition from the u.k. for over a decade because his lawyers argued that it was against his human rights to return to his native georgian where he could face torture there and it's not just abu qatada there's all the criminals who have tried to use the european convention for human rights to basically get greater leniency towards their punishment so david cameron has said explicitly that his goal is to really go she ate britain's relationship with europe radically and his idea of the e.u. being an ever closer union as it sets out in the guiding principles of the blog well that's something that doesn't correspond with what britain wants in fact the
5:09 am
polls have been showing increasingly that it's not what voters want and in fact the emergence of the u.k. independence party which supports an immediate british exit from the european union well that shows just how strong anti e.u. sentiment in the u.k. is and so david cameron again he's under pressure to stop losing conservative supporters going over to ukip so he's got to try and balance what the what the anti you both within his party and the anti e.u. sentiment in the public what they want and we're seeing the prime minister therefore paying his rhetoric against the european union brussels has said time and time again that westminster can't just cherry pick the policies that it wants and throw to the side the ones that it doesn't want but more vividly the e.u. membership it's not and menu but again we've got this indication from david cameron that if he is reelected as prime minister he's going to try very hard to make it
5:10 am
one. artie's polevoy now with an election less than two years away it seems cameron has learned some useful lessons from the success of the u.k. independence party that's because the idea of abandoning the human rights convention is not a new one it was actually first floated by ukip in gerard batten an m.e.p. for that party he believes it so well it's well over time now for britain to take matters directly into its own hands. we now come under the jurisdiction of the european court of human rights which has been response danceable for many decisions that the british were very unhappy with like our inability to get all silent terrorist suspects for example and i said that we have to give prisoners the vote i've said that we cannot have life sentences for criminals they must be reviewed so our worst and most deprived killers will not have the rights to have their life sentences reviewed we have their own courts which have been established over the last eight hundred years we have our supreme court if a british citizen has
5:11 am
a problem with the british government and the british state we have our own courts where they can seek redress and we shouldn't have to take it off to a foreign court presided over by shoreham judges many of whom oxen simply not up to the standard of english judges countries will either observe civilised values or they were many countries in need and not quite up to that standard yet and all this is done for us as actually we've had all these kind of decisions that we're life's to x. years so have a lot of news coming your way this hour just a bit let of the combat of leaving the drug disaster behind as nato troops prepare to bid farewell to afghanistan we look at how the drug industry engulfed the country during their stay the afghan made heroin spreading across the globe. also to come rephrasing the thaw israeli's prime minister benjamin netanyahu he's on a visit to the u.s. trying to persuade the american president not to get too friendly with iran that's

5:14 am
prime minister benjamin netanyahu will likely not offer the same harmonious tone heard last week from iraq's president who is expected to argue that israel and the world at large should continue to be on guard against tehran's nuclear program even insisting that the international sanctions which have been crippling iran's economy not be eased now just seven days ago iranian leader hassan rouhani delivered his debut address at the u.n. g.a. proclaiming that his government was ready to resolve any and all concerns about his country's nuclear program even promising more transparency and engagement with the united states during a meeting with u.s. president barack obama at the white house on monday israel's prime minister insisted that tehran offer. immediate concessions by suspending sensitive nuclear projects or else face even greater international pressure now obama shorting
5:15 am
netanyahu that all options including military options are on the table when it comes to protecting u.s. interests in the middle east hope is that we can resolve this diplomatically but as present united states i've said before and i will repeat that we take no options off the table including military options now last year when the israeli prime minister addressed the u.n. g.a. he presented a cartoon diagram of a bomb claiming that iran would enter the final phase of a weapons production by made twenty eight thirteen israel has of course adopted off from that assessment since making it but while telling the it has been bringing alarm bells over tehran's alleged nuclear program it is simultaneously even ignoring calls from iran syria and other countries to join the nuclear nonproliferation treaty that's keeping the middle east free from weapons of mass destruction israel has also not confirmed or denied if it has its own nuclear
5:16 am
arsenal reporting from new york. and i just last week the leaders of the u.s. and iran spoke directly for the first time in more than three decades and with a political analyst william bell he believes that some groups in america don't want to lose the rather convenient immediate threat of iran as the enemy iran hasn't made a. hostile war aggressive war on any nation for more than a century and a half and i certainly don't think they're insane enough to try to launch a war on israel which is armed to the teeth with nuclear submarines and other weaponry that would would be the really enough to not be to the advantage of iran at all so i think this is a fabrication by a certain international war lobby in washington perhaps in britain. france and certainly around the israeli defense industry and certain circles in israeli intelligence around up and yahoo that want to have iran as

5:18 am
before we get to the update us jump into afghanistan right now and the u.s. and its allies that packing their bags ready to head out of afghanistan next year though they are leaving behind a deadly legacy since the start of the war on terror twelve years ago the drug industry that has simply arrived and it's not only for internal use afghan made narcotics are being steadily appearing all over the world and have killed at least a million people can follow the story. a war that kills without weapons silently with harrowing its production has increased forty times in the family stone since the nato started its war on terror in two thousand and one before that the taliban as brutal as they war heading forced the ban on poppy growing they
5:19 am
declared it was against their religion so hereon production was very low when the u.s. and allied forces invaded the country they allowed afghans to grow poppies they saw it as a way to win locals hearts and minds the u.s. and allied forces have maintained that opium production provides a livelihood for afghan farmers but it's been destroying their lives the lives of thousands of children around three hundred thousand afghan children are now drug addicts my colleague visited one family in afghanistan three mothers all three addicted to opium heroin and marijuana they blow opium in the face of their children to make them fall asleep so that the grown ups can cater to their own addiction they give marijuana to their very young children they buy drugs before they buy food here's what their daughter said. fearful of the move my mother told me let's go to the bazaar i want to buy something for you i said really we went and my mother said to this man do you want to buy these girls you know got to give you

and give us a hundred f. so we went to buy some dry bread and novelty my mum needed money and took my sister we were crying sue notch then she tried to sell me again i begged him not to and she said that if i go to people's houses and brag then to keep me so that's what i do the u.s. and allied forces have been doing little to stop opium production in afghanistan is killing more and more people and not just in of gunston but far beyond its borders of ghana's that produces around ninety percent of the world's opium supply the bulk of the eight hundred and twenty tons of heroin that comes out of afghanistan every year ends up on the streets of russia and europe. that drug money feeds organized crime all over the globe kossovo drug dealers for example have become a predominant crime group in europe that is because seventy percent of heroin that goes to europe goes through the cost of a channel in the meantime opium production is growing in afghanistan last year they
5:21 am
expended poppy cultivation almost twenty percent compared to the prior year and also what kind of a nation building is that when it's clear with these afghan children it was anything but that in moscow i'm going to check out and into the r.v. world up there we go starting with israeli soldiers that opened fire on two palestinian guards killing one of them the shooting began after the pair are said to have approached the border security fence one of the palestinians died on the spot the other was injured and taken into custody by the army claiming they were seen trying to sabotage the border fence. police in brazil have clashed with hundreds of protesting professors who gathered in the streets of rio de janeiro the teachers have been demanding improved pay and conditions some held signs proclaiming less football more education they're angered at the money being

5:23 am
venezuela fair to say have a fairly long history of difficulties they've both been without ambassadors in each other's capitals since two thousand and ten. are before we get to the kaiser report very quickly neo nazi sentiments being gaining strength across the e.u. now the european commission expressing great concern over the rise of anti semitic incidents across the bloc nazis alexia chef ski reports from hungary where the far right neo nazi party is currently enjoying a major surge in support. emotions in tackles flew high in what was meant to be a friendly full game and budapest between hungary and israel but in the stands emotions were even more fierce local fans booed israel's anthem. and chanted fascist leaders names. at another football game several months later the leader of hungary's anti-racist movement was
5:24 am
attacked by hooligans. heard a bunch of fans chanting the nazi slogan. i asked them to stop but they ignored me then after the game they attacked me one of them hit me in the face and broke my nose at the jewish community here says this was just one link in a long chain of anti-semitic and interethnic tensions in the country. we keep hearing and a semitic slogans and sentiments from inside our parliament and in some of our press if you remember nazi germany everything also started with rhetoric then came concentration camps and gas chambers and in hungary sometimes this vocal racism turns into real violence like six gypsies who were killed by a gang of nationalists a few years ago what is especially shocking to hungary's jews is that these things are happening in a country which has a very tragic history in the 1940's hungary had one of the largest jewish communities in the whole of europe but the nazi invasion changed all that more than
5:25 am
half a million people perished in the holocaust and this wall in budapest has all the names of all the identified victims. in may the world jewish congress even decided to hold its annual event in budapest to highlight what they believe is escalating anti-semitism in the central european state and the far right your big party the third largest in the country brought thousands onto the streets their leader the governor of illinois says it had nothing to do with racism but was draw attention to what they claim to be the aggressive policy of israel mean to them with shock sort of coming it is really president arrests once that the only other way to prevail without a military action or not because but you can only want to stick with their leader he said israel will invest a lot of money into hungary or what we've been witnessing a huge influx of capital from israel into our country since then again and tried to find out what's behind it but the jewish community called us nazis and refused to speak to us that's why we protested the your big party made headlines after make it

into hungary sparling menton twenty ten when the country's economy was ailing and judging by opinion polls they're looking to strengthen their position after next year's vote with far right parties now represented in parliaments of ukraine norway finland lat via and several more countries across the continent your vehicle will go into the election safe in the knowledge they're not alone in. a chef ski r.t. reporting from hungary. that r.t. is coming to you live from moscow i roll research i thank you for watching today you need a ship of alibi here in half an hour's time before you'll hear it's not the skies are blasting the banks with the kaiser report after the break.
5:27 am
recently the ministry of internal affairs of russia declared that they're going to address the. increase operations in and around the moscow subway system with a major emphasis on illegal immigration there's an odd paradox when people talk about dealing with illegal immigration in terms of what the police should do people want the police to deal with it but any means of trying to actually do anything are generally taboo and any form of asking people to see ideas viewed as an invasion of privacy or racial profiling well i don't know how exactly anyone can prove they are or aren't a citizen without id and if you're looking for people who are forward and thus different then how can you go about looking for illegals without looking for people who are different i.e. profiling if you were looking for a criminal of slavic origin in uganda when the police be wrong to stop me due to standing out from the crowd i don't think so that's not racial profiling it is just common sense obviously it is best to fight the causes of illegal immigration rather than asking for id in moscow subways but they have to do something so i guess id
5:28 am
checks are here to stay but there's a big difference between looking at someone's passport and doing stop and frisk or involuntary blood and urine tests that is what immigration control goes over the line but that's just my opinion. welcome to the kaiser report imax kaiser a new study has revealed the negative side effect warnings can increase sales the study found that consumers tend to buy more of
5:29 am
a product that advertises potentially harmful side effects like weight gain and heart disease than products that do not. yeah it seems the warnings have the paradoxical effect of creating trust in the consumer pig this could help explain why david cameron has brought forward by three months the conservative party ponzi scheme marketed under the name helped by the ponzi scheme comes with economic health warnings from mervyn king bank of england the i.m.f. and from economists around the world that the program will destroy the u.k. economy despite the warning greater fools are lining up to put just five percent down on a property worth up to six hundred thousand barrels so that they the taxpayer chump will put down the remaining fifteen percent pop up with a bubbly or as a perhaps a bottle of maggie maggie.
