undermining democracy and violating human rights. treasury continues to target officials who have held the illegitimate repress the venezuelan people we are sanctioning officials in charge of murderous security and intelligence of careers which are systematically violating human rights and suppress democracy including through torture and other brutal use of force the u.s. is also attempting to send emergency aid to venezuela which is currently suffering the worst humanitarian crisis in the western hemisphere but nicolas maduro is refusing to allow the food and medical supplies to be brought into his country from colombia he says it's a cynical ploy by the trump of ministration and an attempt to justify a possible military intervention venezuelan president also hit out of the colombian government with she's accused of extreme aggression. for our part our policy for colombia is peace and respect i cannot say the same about the government of the colombian president even duke it who has war plans against venezuela
12:03 am
supported by the us empire i am not exaggerating donald trump and even in the white house announced war plans using colombia against venezuela. meantime the country's opposition leader who is continuing to enjoy washington's full support he blames the douro for the humanitarian catastrophe in venezuela and has said that he hasn't ruled out calling on the u.s. military to intervene against the president wherever next is caleb maupin explains washington's interventions in south america sometimes had disastrous consequences in the past elliott abrams the troubled ministrations new special representative for venezuela has been assigned the task of restoring democracy in the country and he says he's up to it just look how well he did in el salvador from the day the president was elected in a free election to this day el salvador has been a democracy that's a fabulous achievement. yes the pro-u.s.
12:04 am
candidate to war to a won the elections but how democratic was the situation there were human rights abuses and death squads everywhere in fact one of the worst massacres in the history of latin america happened around that time for the for. the. exists. now it was got confronted about the gruesome details before congress yes or no do you think that massacre. was a fabulous achievement that happened under our watch that is a ridiculous question and i guess our no no i literally miss i will make you happy yes i am not going to respond to that kind of personal attack which is not
12:05 am
a question but now the civil war between the us backed factions and the marxist revolutionaries continued until nine hundred ninety two and slaughter by us backed forces also continue the death toll was as high as seventy thousand people but ronald reagan did not consider that to be a deal breaker the people of bill salvador had another free election in march economic reforms are continuing and communist guerrillas are losing ground and none of this would have been possible without the economic assistance and military training and equipment that we provided so what have been the results is el salvador now a land of prosperity and freedom hardly in fact in twenty seventeen el salvador had the highest murder rate of any country in the world it is not currently at war those figures only decreased slightly in twenty eighteen now somebody might look at this and say well that was decades ago why bring it up now well the fact that
12:06 am
abrams wants to repeat is democracy restoration project in venezuela is certainly alarming and when asked about this before the us congress he didn't deem it necessary to give an answer would you support an armed faction within venezuela that engages in war crimes crimes against humanity or genocide if you believe they were serving u.s. interest as you did in guatemala el salvador and nicaragua i'm not going to respond to that question i'm sorry. r t new york. of the news this morning democratic congresswoman tulsi gabbard who's a twenty twenty u.s. presidential candidate has introduced a bill that could stop president trump from the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty. take this threat right now to. our series the right to.
12:07 am
pretty much ever since. the landmark treaty was signed in one nine hundred eighty seven by then leaders ronald reagan and mikhail gorbachev and it's been one of the pillars of international security since it began nuclear capable missiles of intermediate range however thirty years later president trump facing constant accusations of collusion and not being tough enough on russia decided to withdraw from the treaty citing alleged violations by moscow now with the two countries of value to quit the deal fears are growing over a new arms race and research by trump aren't helping to quash those concerns perhaps we can negotiate a different agreement it being china and others. or perhaps we can't in which case we will outspend and out innovate all of those by far russia has denied any violations and said that it's been open to washington for any
12:08 am
necessary checks but that didn't help and for now the treaty has been suspended by both sides paving way for a potential arms race if not worse and now told see gabbert is trying to impede trump's move and it's not the first time she's taking action against a foreign policy that she considers controversial back when obama was in office she proposed the stop arming terrorists act this prohibited funding or support for any militant group with links to eisele or al-qaeda after it turned out that some of the weapons provided to the so-called moderate rebels in syria surfaced into terrorist hands but despite how different republican president donald trump and democrat presidential candidate tells he gathered are that one thing in common both have been accused of being candidates flecked of by russia shortly after she announced that she's running with an anti-war platform and b c news claimed that russia's propaganda machine has been working in her favor citing a discredit at source a company that was caught fabricating russian bots so we're now in the situation
12:09 am
where to american politicians accused of being actually russian have drastically different views on a russia related issue that concerns the whole world well i certainly hope it will be effective i mean i agree with ms gabbert that this is pushing this move by trump is pushing the world closer to the possibility of nuclear war these are the type of missiles these intermediate range missiles that a country like the u.s. might be willing to use on a limited basis so i hope that is gabbert bill works i have doubts though because it seems like there's bipartisan support in the united states for war and for confrontation with russia now if if someone drinks. russian vodka they're a russian agent apparently it's silliness and but it's dangerous because this is an attempt to mark any peace activists any activists for social justice is some type
12:10 am
of a pawn of the kremlin again very much like the old mccarthy period which links similar people with that with moscow. bubs just one of a growing number than a from one political figures right now accused of being under the kremlin's thumb in case you missed it is probably boyko with more. and get as you misstate russian stooges the only call you want to break claims there are none for ages and then turns out not all at once. russia. is making want to take the easy since twenty sixty politicians no longer need compelling arguments or persuasive policies to all that if you're up against a tough opponent the kind that popular with votes is just cool of the russians these stooges are just human versions of those russian books we've heard so much about they don't actually have to be real to walk sure having your own stooge in a position of power would have its advantages but even better is being able to
12:11 am
accuse your enemies of being one a career in russians do jury is one of the most diverse in politics just look at the members of. the newest recruit democratic presidential hopeful tulsi who suggested that bad relations with the biggest nuclear power in the world may not be in everyone's best interests she's a simone american hindu female socialist following in the prestigious footsteps of but the song is an old white american male socialist jeremy corbin an old white british male socialist and don't trump an old orange american male republican opportunist so literally anybody can be a russian stooge and those are just the anti hillary and anti war ones and here are the pro-war pro hillary clinton ones. so how do you even become
12:12 am
a russian stooge. herath the russians stooge recruitment academy we have positions available from entry level all the way up to executive level don't worry about applying for the job mainstream media. unless i am dishonest and want to titian's well would it. be you want to know the majority of our most successful employees simply fell into the job without noticing experience or knowledge of russia or russians is not essential the only qualification required is that you question the status quo publicly at least one if you are successful in your application we will inform you via m s n b c or fox news good luck to you did as. well the boy that eighteen years after washington launched his war on terror which
12:13 am
has cost trillions of dollars and thousands of lives a new u.s. intelligence report said that the terror group al qaida continues to pose a significant threat to the country the details peter all of. their is being presented as a real and present danger by the united kingdom has undergone a certain resurgency as a result of the degradation of diaspora and is a force that should also be taken seriously it's jeffrey notes down and out the hopes just a little strange. since the. war on my orders the united states military has begun strikes against al qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the taliban regime in afghanistan today we focus on afghanistan but the battle is broader since then has spread to all of these countries they've also changed their name as well in syria alone they've gone
12:14 am
through at least three rebranding so whatever they call themselves they still control the lion share of the syrian provence of in libya the thing america isn't keen to get involved as it was previously it is time to give our brave warriors in syria. a warm welcome home and it's also currently battling al qaeda in yemen since the beginning of twenty seven seen we have conducted more than one hundred forty strikes to remove key leaders in the arabian peninsula and disrupt its ability to use on government spaces to recruit train and plan operations against the u.s. and our partners across the region u.s. allies in the region on doing their share of the heavy lifting in fact. the united arab emirates have been accused of passing weapons on to terror groups something they strongly deny almost eighty years after his slaying by u.s.
12:15 am
special forces the words of osama bin laden about the al qaeda network standout and it appears he may have been proved right al qaeda is showing signs of confidence what will threats and the threat from radical islamic terrorism a continuing threat posed by al qaeda as it stands they look likely to be around for a while yet peter all of our r.t. . other headlines this out of a morning the number of children living in conflict zones has doubled since the end of the cold war according to a new report by save the children the charity says that means about one in five youngsters live in areas affected by armed conflict. the fact. that a while i won my lot of head up. the order to get.
12:16 am
in and. they didn't care you had the hoodie. that's what tory had no idea what they'd. done badly. but i get it done much. a lot of them and it's just that. not only are they in good love. that was our. concern all of us last out of us. does.
12:17 am
not break every enemy you show me a feeling. or all your. heart the heart. some four hundred twenty million children live in these conflict zones at least one thousand of them does result every year since twenty ten the number of record cases of rights violations against children is almost tripled that includes cases of killing maybe abduction and sexual violence is despite many of the world's most powerful politicians insisting that young. people must be protected at all costs forces continued their advance bearing down on the city of benghazi. home to nearly seven hundred thousand men women and children prevent images of amaze seeded children how many more children have to die the whole rick humanitarian
12:18 am
disaster that is killing tens and tens of thousands of defenseless children the death of children the destruction of hospitals all of that is a massacre which needs to be can and. our reports say shows that right now almost one in five children on the planet are living in conflicts and that's more than at any time in the last two decades. the consequences of living in these war zones are catastrophic we have to make around three hundred babies are dying due to the consequences of war every single day well in twenty seventeen four hundred twenty million children. living in areas affected by conflict that is an increase of two million on the previous year so what this is really disturbing and where more and more children are being caught up in conflicts in the international systems and sure of accountability breaking down so that when people commit crimes against children they know they can get away with it so what we're calling on is for the
12:19 am
government to stand up for children and wars and ensure that when people do you perpetrate crimes against children held to account what we're really calling for today is for the u.k. government protection of civilians and conflict strategy first of all the u.k. government needs to ensure the curator of the heart of all of that defense diplomacy and aid and that they need to use their seat at some of the most powerful tables in the well at the u.n. nato to ensure that other countries policy the report identifies afghanistan iraq syria and yemen as being among the most dangerous countries for children nobel prize nominee and peace activist kathy kelly told this morning to be done to protect these people. this children certainly can't be held accountable for their governments whether it's military war economic war and i think that because of greed and pride and dishonesty countries all around liberal
12:20 am
continue to wage war against the child the race of the child should certainly be held countries could work together. much more effectively and so we have to take responsibility ourselves and then encourage other people to do like ways they must do everything they can to start this work and to start killing in starving children . french schools could be set to replace the words mother and father with parent one and parent two or on official documents if a plan goes ahead after a new bill was passed by m.p.'s in national assembly the lawmakers in the country's lower house say the proposal would challenge quote old fashioned family models the bill still has to pass the senate but the m.p. behind it believes it will be successful this amendment aims to to look for children's family diversity in administrative forms submitted in school. radio's john gone and he writes i just put
12:21 am
a touch will give us their thoughts of the proposal and what it would be for french society as they saw it. this particular proposal is to try and ensure that the kids in the school the staff and the parents all feel included that in the case of you know two women who are parents to a child that is obviously not appropriate to have mother and father there are two mothers and the same with ok dad is pathetic isn't it because they can be called moment mom well that what the proposal actually actually says he's parent one and parent two if they want to call them moment momos got a problem with that nobody's got a problem with a kid who now has got two two moms but we don't need to legislate for it parents who are on parent to what are we just give the kids a number other number seven it's nonsense yeah you know just the fact that saying with a parent or minority doesn't make discrimination or second class status right if
12:22 am
a child has two moms or two dads then i think it's probably not correct to say father and father because obviously one will be the biological father and the other one won't i would suggest that possibly an alternative or that's probably one of the charge builds them a come a comp a compromise might be mother to give people the option mother father or legal guardian so that the word legal guardian would account for the other person in that same sex relationship where my mother died when i was eleven and it would have been my own to so my auntie was really her guardian and she was my own c. nobody batted an eyelid and the same religious you can record legal guardian peter that's not what they're suggesting they're suggesting you can't use the word father or mom and dad that's what they're suggesting this is an attack on the ninety five percent of people not only in france for around the world who are in the traditional family the traditional family is constantly being attacked at the
12:23 am
moment by globalists. all around the world this is not meant as an attack upon your traditional families this is just to broaden the terms or make the terms more gender neutral so that everyone feels included the whole world has gone crazy these minorities have got too much influence in the media let's stop them for sizing our differences and let's come together and let's put the children first. seems russian trolls have been called over the nefarious antics yet again this time the being blamed for a measles outbreak in europe according to us government funded radio free europe radio liberty according to their article russian trolls and bots are now fueling fear of vaccines among the public its claim that campaigns were used to distribute medical misinformation to promote distrust in pharmaceutical companies and to spread the arguments of vaccine skeptics or the piece then goes on to quote world
12:24 am
health organization vaccine specials katrina have a sad little put much stock in this link between trolls and the measles outbreak she says there are a variety of factors at play and the increased incidence of that in this increased incidence of the disease. we actually don't know enough about the influence of misinformation in vailable online upon the nation intentions and behavior what they do now is that there is an element of echo chambers in this there might be lots of reasons why people don't take up that seems it may simply be that their access to health care services is limited. they may be told show reasons and people may also be getting incorrect information about where the facts. it might not necessarily be correct to lead to any conclusions as to whether it's trolls or or or or any other cause what's really important is that people have access to information that can help them to make the right choice for them and their loved ones as to whether they
12:25 am
proceed with a vaccination i think that's the opportunity that all nations should see to grasp really to have said health care system which is based on a good empirical data about vaccine take out surveillance of the disease because ultimately what we want to do is safe people's lives and that's the auction that countries have rock and seeking to actually blame elsewhere criticism of inoculations does appear to be gaining ground with the general public in several countries hundreds of anti vaccine activists demonstrated against a bill that would make it harder to opt out of measles vaccination in the u.s. state of washington which has suffered his own break of measles over the years people in germany poland and italy of protest against compulsory ministrations billboard and chair of the northern california health care authority says blaming foreign countries for falling vaccination rates is simply irresponsible. for a long time certainly in the united states there has been a subculture that has resisted conventional medicine and this has its
12:26 am
greatest manifestation has been resistance to vaccines saw part of a popular movement which is to resist of origin and it has appeal for people who may feel left out. in the political process or disenfranchised from the economic system what i have seen in a conference i attended that if anything the agenda of the ministry of health of the russian federation is to improve and enhance the health care of the population throughout the country it's very scurrilous and air responsible to accuse russia or the kremlin of promoting this kind of misinformation. list why things are looking so far this saturday morning just coming out to eight twenty six and a half now always more if you dawtie dot com twenty four seven i'm kevin now in for me in the rest of the team here in moscow this morning of
12:27 am
a great weekend. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next that the ball different clubs on one hand it is logical to sit in the home fields where everything is familiar on the other i want to the new challenge and the fresh perspective i'm used to surprising and i saw one on t.v. . i'm going to talk about football not the or else you can sink i was going to do.
12:28 am
by the way what is it that sliding here. the country's gone into a nihilistic fever that's why i think and hit the road and get out the traveling across america to find what makes america take the charlatans the genius this is the quintessential american hero this is it we found the point around which element is done something we always are on the current system. called the culture listening party. where starting last with is the beginning heading east into the swamp we're going into the belly of the beast and i think i want to leave now doesn't get any more gonzo than this maybe completely different than the mr. you know world of big partisan movies lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper
12:29 am
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 for watching closely watching the hawks. unknown you know norm because that's how you know i moved. in the new free shipping them in one of the. one hundred fishy free cell and. they have it at now so for the moment on the plotting of
12:30 am
a small town up i'm going to have the head in the time and it's a bit. of good that a product which i think. this is the only thing that we do is the music. we put it was the music because everybody fights a. way. and i mean i was going to die is the mcconnell way you're both successes because bandicoots all nordic to it i'd. class it was way down to dog so hard not to see the number dissipate the same moment the walk like they are.
