diktats from washington the potential of those companies being penalized in the european union so it puts these companies in a very difficult situation but this i think is only applicable to the very large multinational corporation is that have exposure to different regions perhaps the as a me sector the slump is a small to medium enterprises that are operating in the european union didn't want to do trade with iran and because they have no exposure possibly with their u.s. market therefore they'd be able to stand up and continue doing business with iran. during warfare took over the streets of chicago this weekend with numerous bystanders caught up in the crossfire twelve people were killed and sixty six more injured including several children police say armed gangsters in the city simply don't fear the law.

the the the byproduct of this legacy because when you segregate the city you insulate one part of the city it's such a way in comfort and you ostracize the other in a lack of a lack of assets poverty challenge a disadvantage which generate a certain level of violence american soldiers have been banned from using fitness track apps that story and more still to come here on alt international. joined me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guest on the world of politics school business i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. in a world of big partisan movies. and conspiracy it's time to wake up to
2:34 am
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 bath 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 for watching closely watching the hawks. welcome back to our to international chemical weapons inspectors heading. next week
2:35 am
to probe the nerve agent poisoning that which one person to die and another to become severely ill. the experts from the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons returned to the u.k. to continue their work to independently confirm the identity of the nerve agent which resulted in the death of one british national in amesbury and left another seriously ill presumably they're going to be able to try to help move the investigation forward we do know that they'll be collecting further samples they will be sending those back to o.p.c. w. labs and then reporting back to the u.k. and of course this comes as investigators continue to try to piece together what it is exactly that unraveled on june thirtieth and amesbury one two british citizens were taken to hospital and treated on suspicions of nava chalk poisoning and of course one of those people died and what it is that happened on march fourth when former double agent sergei script hall and his daughter yulia were poisoned leading to a major international scandal because still as we speak right now today both of these
2:36 am
cases continue to be plagued really with the lack of any tangible findings some of the latest details circulating here in the british press have included claims citing sources close to the investigation that police had reportedly identified two suspects in the poisoning claiming that they were russians those reports even suggested that british authorities are getting ready to ask for those people to be extradited however those are very quickly played down in russia of course said that they've received no such request and have talked about the number of speculations that have been flying around involving these cases says this incident there have been no less than a hundred reports based on leaks and sources that's why we shouldn't rely on this information we don't trust unconfirmed reports in the media hopefully with this latest upcoming o.p.c. w. visit more information will be shed on those two cases. security analyst charles
2:37 am
bridge says it could get even harder for the british government and media to stand by their version of events the question of course is that is being asked is whether it's going to be the same batch what it's going to be actually linked this new finding of novacek if it turns out that they weren't meant that of course would stretch the level of for imagination come into it's really two incredibly incredibly lutie in a way because that would suggest that there were two separate proxy or perhaps two sources of navi chalk and therefore i think even the british government you've already alluded in your report to the various different leaks and different stories that have come out in the british media i think even the british media and british government would be hard pressed to explain that particular coincidence that what we factually got here from the u.k. authorities is a media blackout that media blackout has lasted now for more than five months there have been you can count on one hand the number of times police have made a statement about this cripple case or the case combined and most of those are

literally public information around public safety issues very unusually for such an intensive investigation such a high profile high profile investigation. the son of a jailed bahraini opposition figures going on hunger strike over his father's alleged mistreatment imprisoned. protesting outside the country's london embassy he spoke to r.t. . my father was seventy years or serving life in prison in bahrain it was they thought surely they were telling me they are doing the denial of for medical

2:40 am
what i saw and i was in fear of what my father passed away she was because nothing changed and they've been my father is dying destroyed. and we are still your bahraini foreign ministry to comment on the claims of prisoner abuse we're waiting to hear their response. the pentagon has banned the use of your location tracking applications by soldiers saying they can put missions at risk if you do mediately defense department personal approval to it from using jew location features and functionality on government and non-government issued device these applications and services. needed as operational areas of the memo comes after revelations earlier this year that secret american bases could be found while searching for joining tracks on the global map of the straw if it was but for

it began in two thousand and seven as more than a billion jogging and cycle routes logged by users around the world close analysis they revealed concentrated patterns in remote areas in northern syria and afghanistan thought there likely to be troops keeping fit striver has defended its status saying all users have to opt in to be shown on the map and we spoke to retired u.s. army major general paul valery he told us restrictions will only increase in the future. you can take your i phone your other cell phones know and others can track you family members and so on but when it comes to operational areas there are troops are fighting in or operating and we certainly don't want anybody especially the enemy to be able to track their location target them you have to keep in mind many of your soldiers have their own private cell phones and to use for push you know matters to family also you have government issued cell phone satellite phones that are given to the troops in the field to use cell phones have to be restricted
2:42 am
only from the standpoint of who there are communicating with family and other members i think it's going to be even more restrictive in the future because of where technology is today and twenty eight dean and the ability for others to tap into your phone conversations or actually through social media or facebook or whatever it may be. thousands of syrian refugees are tightening home as government forces drive out the last pockets of militant resistance it's a long awaited homecoming for many families some news outlets though see the situation very differently as he goes not off explains. a brutal despot a mass murderer a children gassing animal the nicknames the international media tag the syrian president bashar assad with self-explanatory as to why seven million syrians had fled the country since two thousand and eleven pundits prophesies the dictatorship
2:43 am
must come down before anyone would dare to go home when we asked them about president bashar al assad they said they don't want him dead because that would be too easy is the syrian government in fact more than isis that has ruined their lives and led to so much of the refugee crisis they escape with their children and if you possessions but as they cross the border to safety many also bring their hatred of the man they blame for leaving them homeless come twenty team the syrian army is one by one retaking new areas from opposing factions anti assad forces once in charge of the larger part of syria are reduced to two small pockets of land and what's that a tide of refugees is coming home we want to go back we want to return to our beloved syria i want my daughter to have a future she doesn't. have then i want to go back to syria return to our home or
2:44 am
less of that as to why i'm going back there is no place like home we were not happy here thank god safety and security of back in syria and danny now we are hopefully returning home it's not a case of a few mad men who are for some twisted reason seeking to return under the regime of a tyrant according to the russian defense ministry out of those seven million that escape the conflict more than one and a half are seeking to come back to syria now there's more on the path has already been paved for them the u.n. recorded more than seven hundred thousand syria. as who returned last year and began rebuilding their lives. thank god electricity is back and life went back to normal again i want to fix my home and sleep with peace of mind of course there are millions who are still too afraid to go back for many it
2:45 am
is indeed the dread of us stopping them but those who did and are returning may very well inspire hundreds of thousands more to go back to their roots. fuck here from human rights watch told us the people returning home need additional assistance but it's difficult to keep track of all the numbers of people that are going back but we do know that some individuals have returned to government territory and the territory that it's been held now by democratic forces the u.s. forces does include displaced from other parts of the country as well as that which. some syrians are electing to return. those continue to remain. countries and other countries for fear that they would be caught out in the conflict or. persecution by the syrian government there is
2:46 am
a construct that the russian government and other governments. and ensure that conditions do develop. confidence and return to. some twenty ultra-orthodox jews have been arrested after clashing with israeli police at a rally against description. i was thirty five i was i knew when i hundreds of believers believe brok they oppose the arrest of religious students who failed to report to military enlistment office refused water cannon as they tried to break up the sit in a limited number of religious students in israel do have exemptions from military
2:47 am
service only though if they report to the authorities and prove their status protesters are also furious at a new bill cutting funding for religious and colleges that fail to meet and listen quotas. that's it for myself and the team here for this hour join us at five am moscow time for the latest news up his. claims. camera. three once they showed some leaves for them.
2:48 am
it is still with the beast and that's. down on string i don't rightly don't t.v. . greetings and salutations love them or hate i'm online talk show host alex jones and is in full wars brand is currently sitting at the epicenter of a first amendment hurricane this week that when all's said and done could actually forever change the very nature of free speech inside the united states of america not only is jones facing a civil lawsuit brought against him and his advertisers by some of the families of the sandy hook shooting over claims and innuendos of hoaxes and crisis actors but on monday this week social media tech giants facebook apple and u two pulled the plug on the alex jones show the new york times reports that facebook removed four
2:49 am
pages belonging to mr jones including one with nearly one point seven million followers you to terminator mr jones channel which had more than two point four million subscribers and billions of views on its videos repeatedly violating its policies including its prohibition on hate speech jones responded with its usual flair for the dramatic declaring on twitter understand this the censorship of info wars just been decades everything we've been saying now who will stand against tyranny and who will stand for free speech we're all alex jones now. but it's the lawsuit that according to wired could actually have a bigger influence on the future of free speech wire reports that whether jones wins or loses his suit according to first amendment lawyers will be built we will be a building block for the way we think of free speech in the age of the internet you see not only is this case about alex jones and free speech but it's also a case that could redefine just who and who is not considered
2:50 am
a public figure and subject to libel in the age of instagram the selfie and the you tube channel so with free with the future of free speech to lie torn between the wild rantings about looks jones and corporate media's desire to sanitize you know it's time to start watching the hawks. to. get the. real thing. at the bottom. like you but i got. sick as. well horrible to watch the hawks i am a robot turd and i'm top of the law list and i just saw the two pictures behind me and i i actually saw her bergen alan jones i'm saying. so this is fascinating
2:51 am
actually what's going on what he's whirling around my old buddy alex i worked with alex a long time ago on conspiracy theory about on the show a long while back and all of that says ever but i did meet up once and. this is one of those kind of things where yeah you knew the two like you knew the two friends were going to collide it so yeah it doesn't mean this isn't bad but it was or have it all when you have someone who is that purposely controversial and pushes the button down. and what's interesting is when you when you look at this. like wired kind of pointed out brilliantly is there they're saying that yes the facebook the you tube that's an issue you know that's one issues or every speech that should be looked at but the other thing is that is there's libel court this court case of these involved with the families of the sandy hook. because here's we're liable is really interesting in the supreme court case in new york times
2:52 am
versus old when the court basically gave status to public officials and figures they gave them special status because there are said the defamation against them has to include actual malice behind it and giving knowingly false statements and reckless disregard for the truth they did that to set the bar really high so you know politician so people can have free speech they could criticize politicians they could criticize public figures and not have to worry about getting sued for it if they're giving their opinion right you know so that's why they set the bar so high what's interesting though about the with the jones case and this is the you know not only is there basically this will decide if in the internet era because something happens to you and then let's say you like what the families than let's say they're speaking out on gun rights online or something like that are they now public figures because what what you know that's the whole essence of the cases like you know they're suing jones jones as far as saying well wait i i'm not
2:53 am
they're public figures i'm just speaking my opinion i'm doing all this like they can't be suing me for this because it's all of kind of wrapped up in the free speech. yeah i think i would stone finance to take some quiet time and go over have free speech and a lot of things i mean first of all i don't even know what to think about alex jones anymore because first he spent years and years being this crusader of the truth and then the many he gets into a heated divorce battle suddenly it's it's all just announced it's all. just entertainment i'm not this guy who really bad guy it's all for quotes but now we're supposed to believe that all of i'm supposed to care that he got kicked out of a corporation's platform a platform that has way more problems or free speech before you ever went off a bad he was on there to make a buck he was on twitter to make a buck he was on you tube to make a buck if he really believed in the things he was talking about he want him banned
2:54 am
on those platforms they stand for everything he says he's against what's interesting is how it's interesting points but what's also interesting is. what's also interesting about this is if you take the idea of alex jones out of the equation and just look at what's happening with all of this there is some major free speech issues i think. you're right private industry has the right to do whatever they want on their platforms that are correct in your sign up to do but what i would say i'm curious is like in this age of the internet in this age of like you know rampant free speech for everyone that is the internet's wild west you know. what really strikes me about this is do we need to redefine free speech to go beyond just government like you know should govern you know government cannot censor speech right and no no government is censoring his speech right but what i'm saying is should we should we look at and say does free speech carry over to the private industry as well. no. i was no i don't i
2:55 am
don't i don't think it does i think you have to have that difference you can't you can't sit and say that the government because then great idea the government will then be in charge of regulating how all the private industry is take care of whether they're censoring people or not so who decides whether facebook is actually censoring somebody so not the government's going to decide what's free speech and what you're not point interesting that makes me nervous i'm not a fan that's very interesting. one year ago this weekend the unite the right rally in charlottesville virginia brought white supremacists white nationalists and their fans to that city for the idea of saving an american civil war loser statue general robert e. lee it was then that a self-styled nazi sympathizer murdered thirty two year old how their higher who
2:56 am
was part of the counter protests now this weekend the organizers of that deadly charlottesville rally will be holding their unite the right rally here in washington d.c. and one you know it the police department. where they hide white supremacists wanted to give give them special trains and accommodations for the white supremacists taking part in a rally however in a statement to the press i'm all committed transit union local six eight nine president jackie jeter said we draw the line of giving special accommodation to hate groups and hate speech the union has declared that it will not play a role in their special accommodation of course that didn't stop fortune magazine and others to proclaim that the d.c. d.c. transit union briefly uses a very white nationalist to unite the right rally by the way guys that. that my friends is what's called a fake and the issue of player isn't squashing of anyone's right to free speech the
2:57 am
issue is that the unite the right participants were going to be given special accommodations to and from their rally. when i think about it there were no special transfer the women's march there were no special transfer the march for life the march for science the national pride march the juggalos or even the trump supporting mother of all rallies didn't get their own trains and as of every legal protest the government cannot impede your ability to protest but they are under no obligation to give you your own special train to your protest but the union has every right to refuse to give them a special service actually that's democracy in action where you're going to see who would do so. now there are a lot of heat about this because we will see the thing that i'm in the wrong for supporting the union in the us but i think it's also because they think they said i refuse to serve you at all and that no the union just said we would do something special was nobody to get treated like everybody else you know what the party was like everybody knows that's not going to happen you know if you're worried about
2:58 am
you know some have you on the train line because you're carried a confederate flag and got a white power short on like that doesn't or a lot of well that's why you know why you know what african-americans have to walk around worrying they're going to get shot or the police are going to be called on them for breathing and you know white nationalists who literally are coming here to spread an ideology that is against everything that america stands for we're supposed to give them a special train sorry sorry sweet is doesn't work that way you have to just they're like everybody else that's was so that's what's really fascinating about this story is. really what's interesting too is it's just the kind of attitude around it and everything like that going on is just really amazing because of. the we're talking a lot of free speech on the show today and at the end of the day it's one of the most sacred aspects as one more segment that we have you know in our constitution and that's why it's important that we tackle each one of these. you can't just leave blake and you can make blake and know what you are the biggest relief of each
2:59 am
just as excuse as an excuse to do certain things as we've talked about a lot it's supporting the right of free speech means supporting speech you don't like just as you do like that also doesn't preclude you from consequences that are true and one of the things that the united organizer from last year had told the washington post that it was about white that this whole thing was about white people are being denied the ability to organize and political organizations the way other groups too free of harassment to face the issues important to us first of all where of they've been stopped they had their they had a second larger having another one they're getting everything they people want to give them special trains what protest is free of harassment what protest is free of people who disagree with you well the whole why do you know you have one side agrees or disagrees and that's called discourse in this country and that's where i go to the ideas of yeah it's just ridiculous i don't understand this at all it's just strange to be in science actually is i think what so what you really have to
3:00 am
put into perspective about this tonight the right you know we're talking about the tiki torch and the people are like what i was just there to once they got caught being there they were like what its premises to except they're yelling like jews will not overtake. the thing about that is that it doesn't actually help their cause a lot of the science into protests show those kinds of protests don't have a thing about it there was a study out last year at stanford and the university of toronto and they were looking at extreme protest matters rob weller a stanford sociologist and co-author of the study stated that the reason that extreme protesters were dissuaded is that less radical bystanders couldn't identify with that people generally don't see themselves as disruptors of the social order or even for the causes they believe in so what he's saying is even if they agree with you on some level i about any kind of mistreatment or their you know legitimate times when concern.
