bolivia's washington backed interim government cuts diplomatic ties with cuba with the nation blaming the white house and it comes as the u.s. blames russian trolls for damaging stability in latin america complicated explains . the u.s. is ringing the russian alarm bells once again this time for latin america state department analysts from the russian link twitter accounts to sow confusion in south american nations that oppose the moscow backed government in venezuela in bolivia immediately after president evo morales resigned on november 10th the number of tweets associated with those type of accounts spiked to more than 1000 today up from fewer than 5 now amid their unproven claims about a russian descent from asian operation they seem to have overlooked the work of a certain louis sarek who calls himself a cyber rambo it turns out i'm a saga rambo now the anti morale us activist was tweeting out as many as 69 posts
8:17 am
in a single 2nd in his one account and tweeted out more than 13000 messages claiming that the ouster of evo morales was not a coup well the actual nature of events tells a different story than what saurez was tweeting let's review. i. think this is. coming up now they tried together here in the to recover political power again and when they can't win they're like since they invent that it was for all it now will realize that it was not fraud but the coup de ton.
8:18 am
this he doesn't know why my resigning to me so that my who does not continue to post acute my socialism rob this it's my duty as an indigenous president and the president of old believe the seeds of peace. but saurez voice was amplified throughout the internet claiming that the ouster of an elected leader by the military was somehow a triumph for democracy and did sorry as go into hiding not at all soros actually boasted about his efforts to sway social media opinion and how they were so effective with an algorithm that was just 25 lines of code. how is this is to bolivian with one click produces more trees than all the leftists efforts to
8:19 am
support a dictator it's important to note that saurez isn't just a person who's highly interested in bolivian politics oblivion himself he's also a veteran of the us military now he denies that he's currently on active duty or in any way connected with cyber command or intelligence agencies and we'll just have to take his word for it i see the hand of the u.s. in this age see the hand of the cia in this and the national endowment for democracy this is an overwhelming amount of social media activity in support of the coup and this was being done by a u.s. military veteran society really was a clue ordinated effort to overthrow the democratically elected government of a well morales we have to look at social media as you know just another public platform and in this case it has been it will be used as support today to us in countries like libya and they're going to continue to use both the mainstream
8:20 am
press and social media to carry out these types of regime change efforts. but twitter has strict policies against this kind of manipulation when we detect suspicious levels of activity accounts may be locked and prone to provide additional information but somehow one guy could have just spammed evo morales out of office so with all this talk of russian bots and kremlin conspiracies perhaps people should look for these cyber manipulators who operate a little closer to washington d.c. they look mop and r.t. new york. and california city is banning property onus from conducting criminal background checks on potential tenants oakland city council's move designed to tackle the homelessness crisis in a separate final reading next month the target is to help former criminals reintegrate into society and not end up on the streets. this ordinance is about
8:21 am
making sure returning community members have equal opportunities they deserve to successfully reintegrate into a community and this begins with a roof over your head. now under the ordinance landlords scum be fined up to a $1000.00 for breaking the room till now background checks were routine that made it almost impossible though for people with criminal records to rent accommodation the move is aimed at getting people off the streets and helping former inmates to stay out of jail now oakland has one of the highest homelessness rates in california california itself the state with the most homeless people the number of homeless in oakland has surged 47 percent in just the last 3 years it's overtaken the likes of nearby san francisco and berkeley and there are now more than $4000.00 people without a roof over their heads roughly one percent of the city's population and of that number only one in 5 even have access to temporary shelter we discuss this issue with t.v. and radio host karen turk and prison legal news editor paul right. i think this is
8:22 am
very irresponsible on behalf of the government behalf of city officials there's a rate of re offenders that's as high as 40 percent per people who've been in prison and the bottom line is that owners need to be informed they need to protect their property owners that's what this city is about this is not really a correlation between people's criminal history and also there's there are levels of of re offense at all so many public safety issues one things that we know is that not having a job and not having a place to live increases research it was a race that in fact endangers public safety if the landlord can find a legitimate reason to deny someone a property to rent to them they're still able to do that they just can't use a blanket issue like a felony conviction or the background checked itself as the basis to deny housing civil liberties should not trump people's safety if we have freedom in america but you know what we can't just bend into p.c. culture that we're so worried about offending everybody that we're putting our own
8:23 am
safety at risk as americans and it's something we have to take a good hard look at you know there are plenty of people that have a lot of missions on their record i happen to be one of them and i'll take responsibility for that and although not here right now you know if there's a reason that we need to keep these histories hidden there is probably something to hide it's one thing to say that you know property owners have a right to rent to whom they wish to and another one of the if they're going to be renting they have to comply with laws to prohibit discrimination and i think there's a difference between. between having laws that allow for bonafide are legitimate concerns worsens those that are just the basis for the landlords of bigotry or prejudices this is totally irresponsible to call this bigotry this is not bigotry it's not the same thing discriminating against someone because of a choice that they made to commit a crime is entirely different than excluding somebody based on race how can we meet back in paris that. and this is not going to solve this crisis and i think that's
8:24 am
why i'm so upset about this this is really backwards california as an example since also we're talking about tens of thousands of people were convicted of possessing marijuana are you going to use that as the basis to exclude people from housing today when that same activity is legal these people who are homeless are going to have a hard time renting no matter while a lot of them are not working they are not employed they do not have the income to substantiate these rentals and it's irresponsible to the owners they are paying taxes and supporting this city it's just completely the world god may have. had to some use in brief for you now starting with the plane that this crashed in afghanistan's goes the province a regional spokesperson says the aircraft reported technical problems before bursting into flames so far there's no confirmed information regarding casualties local media reports claim of 80 people may have been on board it's also not clear
8:25 am
whether it was a military or passenger flight afghan officials say that the plane belonged to a foreign company. and in china the number of deaths from the corona virus has risen to one now 2800 others have been infected health officials warn the forest may spread further assume some sometimes don't show for days the outbreak which began more than a month ago has moved right across the globe affected countries now include france canada and the u.s. . bring us right to staying with r.t. don't forget if you head to our website dot com plenty more stories to check out the. during the great depression which i'm old enough to remember there was most of my family were unemployed. and it wasn't it was bed you know much worse objectively
