5:07 am
military action in venezuela illiterate franker reporters. the number one diplomats of america in russia have finally met and we were hoping to understand if there is at least saw it chance that. and washington could be on the same page when it comes to venice well off well it's like the pale didn't speak to journalists all after this here in finland but when. i talked to the media he thought it wasn't a good idea to shed light on any of the details pretty much but he did respond to my question about mike pump barrow's statement from this weekend that russia must get out of venezuela and also about the possibility of cole said intervening militarily when you start a loose. consent to do this and we tried not to concentrate on those statements
5:08 am
which are publicly discussed because they are being affected by many factors that don't have anything to do was real politics and we concentrated on the real politics in the sense of secluded from my contacts with the u.s. late an american and european colleagues i don't see any suppose it's moved to reaction and media at the after this i asked the russian foreign minister if that included american diplomats and to that he simply answered yes but the real question right now is though whether that is really the case because many times we've heard from the most high ranking officials in america the phrase all options are on the table including the military one and when secretary of state public pale was heading to europe the journalists were reporting that on the plane he said that nicolas maduro can no longer be in charge of this country he believes he is
5:09 am
simply not able to do that even though he is de facto the leader of the country and i can tell you that the government in venezuela understands that they could end up having to brace for the worst case scenario to. listen to what their foreign minister said when he was in the russian capital on sunday no sort o. put it but oh well we are ready for all scenarios the 1st includes diplomacy dialogue and peace and if the u.s. prefers the military part we are ready to resist to have an army police were on our people and we are ready to destroy any army no matter how powerful it is so essentially the most influential powers on the opposite sides here the government at any cost with dural and the self-proclaimed president one why do so are finally in touch on this president donald trump has spoken to president vladimir putin the top diplomats have met but it is unclear whether that would still lead to
5:10 am
a peaceful resolution of this longstanding venezuelan crisis. this week iran announced it would no longer on or all of its commitments under the historic 2050 nuclear agreement came precisely one year after the u.s. unilaterally pulled out of the deal something that hits iran's economy hard and heightened international tensions to iran is now threatening to keep access enrich uranium stocks in the country rather than sell them abroad to run has also given the pack signatories 2 months to ensure they are upholding their side of the deal will resume production of more highly enriched uranium the move met with a mixed reaction from europe and a new round of sanctions from washington. the united states wanted to pull out of the g c p a way in order to make iran withdraw from the deal the day after so the us would be able to refer the case to the un security council that sought to ease the burden on
5:11 am
the shoulders of the us to redouble and ratchet up the pressure on iran iran did not fall into this trap. we have continued to see every that leads us to believe that there is escalation that may be taking place and so we're taking all the appropriate actions both from a security perspective and well as. our ability to make sure that the present has a wide range of options and they made this up that should actually take place what we've been trying to do is to get iran to be him like a normal nation. unfortunately this is typical of our american colleagues during my meeting with u.s. secretary of state my company or in finland on monday i called on him to employ diplomacy rather than you should dress when it comes to challenging situations. we urge the iranians to think very long and hard before they break that deal.
5:12 am
nothing could be worse than iran leave in the agreement there are no sanctions today from europe because iran has so far all research back to the commitments. we well i think rick sanchez discussed iran's threat to restart its nuclear program with mohammed brandy of the university of toronto who helped negotiate the iran nuclear deal. even insiders here in washington with think tanks representing organizations like the carnegie endowment are now saying the troubled ministration is being quote deliberately provocative but we ask the question tonight is iran acting in a manner deserving of u.s. and israeli condemnation or are both countries simply trying to provoke busy the iranians into a war much like our invasion of iraq some are criticizing the 1st question why is
5:13 am
president rouhani threatening to restart the iranian your rating and richmond program. well i think it's pretty obvious the iranians negotiated the nuclear deal after many years of negotiations and the iranians made. significant concessions they were flexible in order to show the international community that its nuclear program never was anything but peaceful and that iran contrary to what we constantly heard in the western media was not looking to create tension i'm going to back you up on this actually 14 reports by the international nuclear energy agency 14 are confirming that iran has not violated the agreement at is not building a nuclear program why didn't the obama administration the trumpet ministration or the netanyahu administration buy that why did they believe it why do they say
5:14 am
differently. and i think the intelligence agencies knew exactly what was happening and i think that they knew quite well that the nuclear program was peaceful the united states government and the political establishment really never forgave iran after the revolution and the fact that iran chose an independent foreign policy but right now what trump is after in the opinion of men. people iran is not to limit the nuclear program but according to what we see. coming from bolton and pale it is basically to not just overthrow the political establishment but there is even talk about trying to make iran as a nation collapse all together. you're watching the weekly still to come for you this hour russia marks the 74th anniversary of nazi germany surrender on the state and the end of the war on the eastern front we'll have a look at some of the pictures from that just after the break.
5:15 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race in this spearing dramatic development the only move really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. what is it going one is magic and the new type of digital currency the centralized digital scarcity chancellor i'm bringing up 2nd for bankers call the genesis blog for reason because being a civil disobedience
5:16 am

5:17 am
it's very difficult to describe the atmosphere here it's it's job electric isn't tense but that the super rich excitement up excitement just released during the parade itself. you're right there for sure rio. i. think knights this country more then the it's all right jim it march every time i see this i just don't understand where the flow of the crowd is going to stop it's and this.
5:18 am
victory day does hold a special place here in russia too to the incredibly high price paid by the people of the soviet union over $26000000.00 died in the calm flakes more than half of them were civilians and that meant that almost every soviet family lost somebody. in one of the most devastating chapters in the history of the great always thoughts of the siege of leningrad it began on the 18th of september 941 when nazi forces surrounded the secy severing the last 3 in their names in a true testament to human race. indians the residents of lending grads faced with crippling hunger and heavy bombardment never faltered and there were systems. that's the way of never going to work a clear shot or sure how much to be. done because of the law was the pit that was
5:19 am
in your eye was cut budget by the us but it's about the officers to come. was. the end of the system the doors even made to believe they were in the fifty's and just need to get the old good idea was already heard even the part of the corps a mature in their music or their losses much of a local cluster told them if you just live in the slowly it's. loop. you please. please.
5:20 am
feel. free. to push the woman to do so. pollution in the values of our homes. now the nice clashes have broken out in the several french cities between yellow vests protesters and police in what is the 26th consecutive weekend of demonstrations across the country. i think i was. talking about. i could have written a topic that is was like like
5:21 am
crazy i think and i think i hope for the rally in paris this saturday got caught in the rain many could be seen carrying umbrella is there the government says fewer though than $20000.00 people turned out across the country which would make this weekend the weakest turnout since the beginning of the movement protest organizers they do claim that over $37000.00 people took part i. didn't he was the us vice president under the obama administration is already ahead of the pack in the contest for the 2020 democratic presidential nomination that's according to the latest polls and it seems to you that much of the media and democratic leadership are throwing their weight behind the former senator as they once did to the hillary clinton. reports. a new
5:22 am
poll shows that joe biden has surged ahead in the race for the democratic nomination in 2020 the poll shows that 46 percent of democrats are backing joe biden as the potential nominee with only 14 percent backing bernie sanders and despite a lot of other polls telling a very different story the media has jumped on this one voices are now telling us why he's the best choice for the democrats and this is a guy who doesn't have a republican but you see some of the folks on the website you mean for joe biden is that he's the most electable candidate for democrats to beat donald trump i think joe biden is a best chance of success does this sudden coronation remind you of anything. hillary clinton is the best candidate democrats can put forward a take on donald trump voters in wisconsin think hillary clinton is the best candidate hillary clinton is the best candidate the media tells us that joe biden is the most experienced candidate furthermore it stresses the point that biden is a centrist he's actually kind of
5:23 am
a centrist which is one of the reasons why i think republicans fear him more than the other hillary clinton is not threatened in terms of the nomination because she is a pretty moderate centrist democrat and in fact biden's 1st campaign fundraiser happened at the home of the exact same guy his name is david cohen he's the chief lobbyist for the media conglomerate known as comcast now both biden and clinton voted for the iraq war both biden and clinton have lots of wall street donors and both biden and clinton screamed to lock him up in the 1990 s. driving america's incarceration rate sky high trumps a victory in the 26th election was interpreted largely as a rebuke of a failing political establishment now hillary clinton's husband got some interesting advice years ago my wife gave me a psychology book several months ago in which the author defined insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again and expecting a different result perhaps it's time to revisit that book polls are often
5:24 am
a reflection of media coverage and the corporate media in the united states love suman gives him lots of coverage and that can give him support in polls and they often poll likely democratic voters which is not the same thing as who actually ends up voting in a generalization even in jest who answers polls is not the same thing as who votes clinton she was the most experienced and the most right wing of the democrats and the media loves turbot he didn't mean she could get elected in fact the polls were overwhelmingly clear time and time again b.d. of appreciate them if there are massive purchases of advertise. joe biden 2020 has already engaged in of what the media like someone and telling everyone they are the leading candidate as they did overwhelmingly with hillary clinton does not you know anyway obvious mean that is a candidate who's going to win an election. that facebook has provoked another
5:25 am
storm of control of the city this time by banning in australian breast cancer a campaign that it claims was violating its rules on nudity. because there. was. what the ad does feature topless survivors of breast cancer covering themselves with small cakes the campaign was launched by the breast cancer network australia together with the bakers delight chain last year raised more than half a 1000000 dollars the c.e.o. of breast cancer network astray said that facebook has previously approved the advertisement says. we were so disappointed to hear that facebook had found that our very brave women and men who all had breast cancer we're told that they were probably too real into confronting to be able to have paid on facebook particularly in that 40 plus age group use facebook to tell their friends and family of things
5:26 am
that are important to them so facebook has been important we have been trying to get in contact with facebook and still we have only heard through the media in fact here in australia that they sent to us we needed to add educational messages this was very new news to us the only thing that we knew is that all the ads were allowed to happen but then again the day that we launched facebook said these ads were no longer permissible a spokesperson for facebook australia has said that while she personally love the idea the ads didn't follow the platforms guidelines policy does allow for the posting of post msec to me photos for ordinary users but for advertisers the rules are stricter here's how twitter users have been reacting to what happened. finally deployed for you to paula see facebook seriously but this is ok. this is not to
5:27 am
rude to facebook naked garden indeed takes precedence over a fundraiser for cancer survivors and sufferers. strange the true gender of the facebook mission statement so when a group use the facebook form for a good cause they jump and it's been shifted down we spoke to the human rights attorney jennifer breeden she thinks that facebook needs to avoid selectively forcing its rules facebook right now say that it has a consistent policy if you just look at the language of its policy but it is not consistent and how it in forces its policy is targeting in campaigns like this with breast cancer research or awareness but it's also targeting different political groups in certain things so it needs to look at how it targets so that it chooses to enforce its ban under because there are many people who have far more explicit ads that are not banned we're seeing that america has a silence prominent conservative voices were seen that is they silence other things
5:28 am
other ads and they target these people they target those that they want to silence that differ with them politically or socioeconomically and that is not ok we need to have consistency and we need to have platforms that allow the freedom of speech to come out rather than silencing the freedom of speech and using it under the guise of violating policies so that's how the way to use looking so far today here not you don't forget there are plenty more stories to our website. seriously folks go through a period of sort of full scale fist 1st bloody. good you might be able to mine you would believe that it was my go to the. losing is it's
5:29 am
a feeling supple of a good enough that all you want to solicit they're going to put me on the line i'm going to be said to you lou personally was god willing you'll know paul. enough well it was pretty good way to lose a. kind of what you stated to him which could be a hope of coming down on a post i come. near to you leave the room you're learning you don't need to storm the lead here's some i look down from moods sure bears are doing the clue a trick of crime story some are going to. what
5:30 am
is korean to me a big coin is censorship resistant value transfer without any need for a middleman that has this unique quality of being on confiscate a ball and people have not yet a realized the power of this on confiscated all property because it's the 1st time we've ever owned anything of value as a human being that is on confiscated all so on our journey from the genesis block to the moon 2013 is quite a crucial year central banks governments around the world really begin to take notice of bitcoin because in 2013 it demonstrates that it is on confiscated ball and.
