4:07 pm
a slight chance that moscow and washington could be on the same page when it comes to venice well of well liked but didn't. speak to journalists at all after this here in finland but when. you talk 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 barrows statement from this weekend that russia must get out of venezuela and also about the possibility of cool sam intervening militarily things that are loose. consent to do this alone we tried not to concentrate on those statements which are publicly discussed because they are being affected by many factors the don't have anything to do with real politics we concentrated on real politics incentives from my contacts with the u.s.
4:08 pm
led to an american and european colleagues i don't see any suppose this move to reaction immediately 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 pump ale 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 simply not able to do that even though he is 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 just listen to what their foreign minister
4:09 pm
said when he was in the russian capital on sunday but it but oh but what good is it we are ready for an area that. includes diplomacy dialogue and peace and if the us prefers the military part we're ready to resist we have an army police 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 door and the so proclaimed president one quite though are finally in touch on this president donald trump how spoken to president vladimir putin the top diplomats have met but it is unclear whether that would still lead to a peaceful resolution of this longstanding venezuelan crisis. this week iran announced that it would no longer honor all of its commitments from the historic $2015.00 new clear agreement that came percent in one year after the
4:10 pm
u.s. unilaterally pulled out of the deal something that has had to iran's economy hard and heightened international tension iran's now threatens to keep excess. stocks in the country rather than selling them abroad to iran has also given the pact signatories 2 months in which to ensure that their upholding their side of the deal or it will resume production of more highly enriched uranium move was 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 to ease the burden on 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 say actually every that leads us to believe that there is escalation that may be taking place and so
4:11 pm
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 thereby this up there should actually take place what we've been trying to do is to get iran to be him like a normal nation. state 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. nothing could be worse than iran leave in the agreement there are no sanctions today from europe because iran has so far all resource back to the commitments. on these work sanchez discussed arounds threat to restart its nuclear program with
4:12 pm
side mohammad marandi from the university of tehran who actually helped to negotiate that iran nuclear deal. even insiders here in washington with think tanks representing organizations like 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 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
4:13 pm
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 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
4:14 pm
foreign policy but right now what trump is after in the union of many. people in iran is not to limit the nuclear program but according to what we see. coming from bolton and and i'm 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. 74 years since the surrender of nazi germany will take a look at the commemorations after the spring. you know world of big partisan lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to
4:15 pm
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 bad 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. with lawmakers manufacture consent to the public will. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the flame and merry go round lifts and be the one percent. we can all middle of the room sick. room in the real news room.
4:16 pm
the 74000 of us are of nazi germany surrender on thursday and the end of the war on the eastern front is a look back at the commemorations. it's very difficult to describe the atmosphere here it's it's job electric. tents but that the super rich excitement up excitement just released during the parade itself . you hold.
4:17 pm
your run of. your rio are. nothing knights this country more then the war it's all right jim it march every time i see this i just don't understand when the flow of the crowd is going to stop it's endless. i think today holds a special place here in russia to see the incredibly high price paid by the people of the soviet union of the $26000000.00 in the conflict more than half were civilians meaning that practically every family lost somebody.
4:18 pm

4:19 pm
when i will stay here i will die when i refused to give in to the enemy tell my wife that i was defending the motherland. we will win no matter what. the venture comrades. joe biden vice president and barack obama is leading the pack in the contests for the 2020 democratic presidential nomination according to the latest polls and it seems much of the media and democratic leadership is throwing their weight behind the former senator as they well the states with hillary clinton in the more pain reports. a new poll shows that joe biden has surged ahead in the race for the
4:20 pm
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 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 a central
4:21 pm
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 he 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
4:22 pm
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. 2020 years already . of what they. saw what we know everyone there that we leave here and it well me with your eclipse it does not you know anyway obvious. that it was going but we don't. facebook has provoked into the storm of controversy this
4:23 pm
time by banning an australian breast cancer appetising campaign for violating its rules on nudity. as. well here as featured topless survivors of breast cancer covering themselves a small cakes it's a campaign that was launched by the breast cancer network australia together with the bakers delight chain last year it raised more than half a $1000000.00 the chief executive breast cancer network says facebook previously approved the ads. 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 i would have paid on facebook particularly in that 40 plus age group use facebook to tell their friends and family of things
4:24 pm
that are important to them so facebook has many what didn't we have been trying to get in contact with facebook and still we have only heard through the media are 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 says that while i. personally love the idea and sells didn't follow the platforms guidelines the policy does allow for the posting of post my state to me photographs by ordinary people but for advertisers the rules are strict as our facebook users have reacted. violated the plans for policy facebook seriously but this is ok this is not to rude to facebook
4:25 pm
naked garden day takes precedence over a fundraiser for cancer survivors and sufferers. strange the true agenda 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. to human rights attorney jennifer breathe new things to point to one of the concerns with the social media giant. 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 we're seeing that is they silence other things other ads and they target these people they target those that they want to
4:26 pm
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. of today thanks to starting with ulti this evening join me for updates on the headlines the top stories. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm showbusiness i'll see that. we have a situation that is very unusual and that's why. it's like i feel

4:28 pm
during the great depression which i'm old enough to remember there was and most of my family were unemployed working class and it wasn't it was bed you know much worse objective listen today but there was an expectation that things were going to get better. and there was a real sense of hopefulness there isn't today today's america where shape my the turn principles of concentration of wealth and power. reduced democracy attack solo douched engineer elections manufacture consent. another principle holds according to. one set of rules for the rich opposite. that's what happens when you put her into the. narrow sector of wealth which will is dedicated to increasing power for chills just as you'd expect one of the most influential intellectuals of our time speaks about the modern civilization of
