spread of the virus some of the methods being approached across the globe in the u.s. military bases have become makeshift isolation areas for we were on evacuees but if you look at some reports it sounds like russia's dusted down its good legs we have total imprisonment all of it looks so surreal people in full body chemical protection suits constantly coming in but many of the guests have been taking to social media to show just what their temporary lives are like to send you a colony is one of the only bonus here is our room and everything is very good there all the basics. you can easily live 14 days here there is a shower and a t.v. . fridge which i haven't used yet. so wardrobe and a mirror when i come into the room i found fruit sweets and tea on my table everything is good cosy i'm happy. with the evacuees provided up to 4 meals

becoming as much about politics as the movie industry best supporting actor winner about brad pitt startled fans with political references saying he had 45 seconds more to give a speech and john bolton had to testify at the senate while best actor joaquin phoenix shocked the public by defending the rights of artificially inseminated counters. every single person who won an oscar to know it's odd like to think so many people joaquin phoenix know shut up and sit the fuck down we're going to talk about the way we alter officially inseminate cows and steal their milk. congratulate joaquin phoenix for the shout out hope of the audience just tuned out over the bret the bolton impeachment grech the oscars should be about move this not divisive political commentary imagine telling someone into sausage in 5 the bread beads would shout john bolton during his oscar speech because he wasn't allowed to testify against president trump. many are concerned that such ceremonies have
become too politicized meanwhile it was found that many actors speeches are written by a company working with top politicians and organized by former staffers the obama clinton party is a guest on of takes a closer look. as acceptance speeches used to be straightforward thank you i don't know what to say gods but it seems the simple times in hollywood are long gone now they're as much about climate change elections and the quality is the cinematic achievement women 18 to 118 when it is time to vote please do so in your own self-interest it's what men have been doing for years. and while culture is the 3rd leading cause of climate change 70 percent of the water it pollutes the most water the statistics are staggering dedicating our lives.
save our environment and figuring out how we can save our own but how did we get here when and how did all these major stars catch the woak bug because you didn't seriously think of the all right there except in speeches themselves now did you so perhaps it was right about the time barack obama's old stuff as and speechwriters switched to offering their services to the west coast maybe jon favreau no not this jon favreau the other jon favreau yes this one he is not just your average scribe he was also a director of speech writing for the former us president and me told me via 2 he was once obama's national security spokesman the duo founded a firm called fenway strategies back in 2013 and while they're not disclosing the names of their clients they are proud to work with hollywood's elite over the last
year we have worked with some of the highest profile individuals on the planet from former presidents to oscar winners fenway strategies employs people who have diligently served not only barack obama but other democratic luminaries including hillary clinton michael bloomberg joe biden and others among a bus respectables as confidentiality is the name of the game here who's to say if and we was involved but see if you can notice a common theme everyone associated with the black women's agenda. i'm thrilled to be with you i'm thrilled 'd to be associated with you as a black woman i am especially proud to stand here today because i know for certain that the dreams of my ancestors run through me the race is the of them go along the whole the folk hero the set of hope the other church the bigotry of the trough it
betrays should we have a racist in the why you know we have. the white house we add a half of logic own lawyer in the white house. one of fenway as employees. also authored a book called impeach the case against donald trump wonder if he got the ending right and if anything a transition from capitol hill to hollywood has added some much needed glitz and glamour to boring old political messaging rushing for rights is a speech forces dream come true because unlike politicians who are not professionals at memorizing lines or delivering them in compelling cars mustique ways arches actually know how to deliver the lines so is it really a surprise that ever so glad to be able to spend some of that fat only would pay
checks on a few lines of text that can launch them on to the divine bounty and of the woke in a matter of minutes find it kind of interesting how creative the democrats have become here in trying to disseminate their messages so they're using 21st century methods to win a 1000 century political ideas here on this in the left is going to try anything they can this election season to try to either bash the president or promote their progressive ideas especially now with the oscars and the timing of the. after is coming on the heels of their resoundingly loss in their attempts to try to impeach and remove president from god unfortunately because of group think in the bullying that permeates in hollywood right now and the celebrity that leads to the right is going to be ostracized and on lot of them have actually been blacklisted out of the industry
a production backed by barack and michelle obama won the oscar for best documentary the film by britain's channel 4 news sparked massive criticism of donald trump's policies but there's been more controversy in the category as a nominated documentary on the syrian city of aleppo has been accused of pushing a pro terrorist angle and airbrushing the role of militant groups in the region. we also proud to have developed this film from was one forgets where short films join the siege of aleppo all the way through to this incredible feature documentary proof that's a unique supports of independent filmmakers across the world can have a huge impact. that movie movie won a british academy award for best documentary as well as around 60 other prizes worldwide however the team's affiliations have raised concerns camerawoman awad has
been an outspoken supporter of the syrian revolution and her husband has been repeatedly spotted with the hottest including a man who beheaded a child independent middle east journalist vanessa says that the documentary do not end there. didn't nice the existence 1st of all. of the extremist armed groups and the terrorist groups and we have to remember that most restaurants which is are there in syria was and still is the dominant force among the extremist on us in east and now of course what we see or are these 2 particular us effectively earth commissioned by channel 4 to produce reports that were presenting a misrepresentative view of what was happening in a celebrity and this view was not being verified or investigated independently or channels or it was being republican as gospel in a sense now that at least the liberals liberates what we're seeing now which for
some i. didn't know little of justice and a continuation of the suffering that the people went through both front of the occupation of the groups and in west of the press that would daily being targeted by mortars from east and. you can find more analysis of the documentary and the situation on the ground from the independent journalist covering the syrian conflict check out by nasa believes views on our web site. also at r.t. dot com an interview with the russian singer who some in washington claim is tied to the 2016 u.s. presidential election meddling allegations the man is union i don't lara and pop singer who is also once donald trump's business associate that's apparently being the reason why he attracted attention and the u.s. special counsel investigation into alleged russian interference on a boycott spoke to the man who is believed to have a range the much reported talks between the 2 front team and the russian attorney
which was a central focus of the miller crowe here's a quick preview. of the now infamous trump town meeting that's been dodging air and to russia lower in the tally of the senate's cat do you think this whole thing was . handled africa only. on your side on my side. 100 percent was handled ethically. simply for the reason that i was are always ready to testify and we reached out and said that yes i mean it's coming to another state and located 2 weeks from my tour to you know testified to congress to the miller speak to whoever wanted to speak to me about this whole set up my only negotiation. aspect was that i want to do it voluntarily so i don't have to get stuck in the united states and the miller's team replied that it can only be mandatory which would mean i would have to stay in the united states at the investigation finishes which at that point was over
a year in progress so i thought the main reason for why you care was the only reason because when you asked again because i had another but $110.00 shows that year that i would have to risk because i'm stuck in the states and these are major financial risks as well so all i canceled was the american tour which cost me about half a $1000000.00 and personal losses but we did return tickets and now we are heading for the store again i think everybody should be realistic if there's you know this whole spy thing going on between russia and america i would not be involved my manager music manager would not be involved i don't know why by the way i was a manager for michael jackson as well as another 20 years ago. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says he is ready to resort to drastic measures against gaza during recent attacks on his country i want to make it clear
we will not accept any aggression from gaza only a few weeks ago will an aide to the senior commander of islamic jihad in gaza i will detail a while plants will not least allow actions but we're prepared for crushing action against the terror groups in gaza. but palestinian militant group hamas called netanyahu threats a provocation adding it will only encourage palestinians to fight back tensions have been on the rise after the u.s. president announced a peace plan for the region with many calling that proposal heavily biased in favor of israel subsequent clashes have led to numerous civilian victims including children one palestinian family shared one such incident with us a warning you may find the following images upsetting 14 year old mohammad has been in a coma since being shot in the head last week by israeli soldiers the victim's family say he was simply walking in a local park with friends mohammed's father described to us how he learned about what happened. muhammad was shot in the head i wasn't home at the time my
father got in touch with me he said my son was wounded i was driving at that moment when i got back i saw my suit was badly injured he was taken to hospital it's only after soldiers removed the brave blood and then my son was put in intensive care. and in response to r t the israel defense forces say that their actions were justified as there were dozens of palestinians in the area burning tires and throwing stones the i.d.f. that it is aware of the boy's injuries meanwhile mohammed's grandfather told us a rather different story. all those would that is the children went to the park and saw soldiers there of course they were scared so they hid behind a rock at one point they wanted to see the soldiers had gone so mohammad stood up to look and then he was shot a bullet hit him in the head from the right side he lost a lot of blood and fell into a coma he's arms and legs are paralyzed his story is one of many tragedies in our
town every time a child becomes a victim people are terrified i can tell you that these soldiers really do shoot at children in our town is. still much to come ahead in the bolton including new revelations about the death of a u.s. contractor adn iraqi military base details on that after this break. what holds if. you put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. some want to be rich. but you'd like to be close to what the $43.00 of the $400.00 people are. interested in the why.
to the extreme tensions between the u.s. and iran last month baghdad military officials are questioning washington's version of events according to which way to run it backed militia launched a rocket attack on an iraqi military base killing an american contractor but the iraqi side says there might have been a very different culprit for ports. so far this is beat an awful year a plague terror volcanoes and shootings and it all began with a very nearly world war 3. go to the globe. but.
one thing leads to another and we're on the brink of that war now imagine finding out that it was all based on a lie as you know asteroid the u.s. forces were attacked by hezbollah out to base near kirk that hard if that the us used the incident of the k one base attack as an excuse to accuse hezbollah and hold it responsible for this is a weak and false pretense that it cannot be taken as a justification to target groups that's are the iraqi borders and defending iraq the. iraqis have a least having consistencies with trump story 1st the jaw graphy the initial attack which america cited and blamed on the iranian backed caught the by his wallet happened in this sunni muslim populated area of kirkuk province she'll muslim such
as caught the by his boat iranians they aren't welcome that if you've never been to iraq let me spell it out taking a walk through the wrong neighborhood can get killed and facts caused by hizbollah hasn't been seen in this area reportedly for years who has made a home in the area is isis they will. 3 attacks here just days before we as iraqi forces cannot even come to this area unless we have a large force because it is not secure how could it be that someone who doesn't know the area could come here and find that firing position and launch an attack. the villages near here in the new europe their sympathy with the why do we resort to blame and hizbollah or those american intelligence connected the dots real quick they examine the truck that apparently launched the rockets at the u.s. base connected it to cut the best bowler iran cited intercepted communications and
then hid everything literally they haven't shed praed of information with their allies or iraq or the defense took office of actions in defense of our personnel interests in iraq by launching 15 strike eagle against 5 targets associated with hizbullah which is named in running in the sponsored shiite militia group and i would note also that we will take additional actions as necessary to ensure that we act in our own self-defense and we deter further bad behavior from militia groups or from iran we have requested the american side to share with us any information any evidence but they have not sent us any information the inconsistency as they mounted mount the truck that the u.s. says fired $31.00 rockets at them well iraqis adding lies that unfounded fod less than half of that what adds minor compared to what comes next the iraq war and the
u.s. base that there was a growing risk of isis attacking them on november 6th iraq's national security council since a report to the americans noting that since last october isis terrorists have endeavored to told one base in cookoo district by indirect fun could you shoot rockets to sum up here is how it went the americans were warned that isis which controls territory around the u.s. base and hates america was plotting to attack and the intro kits at the base the attack happens so blames and then bomb. abre arabian militia citing intelligence either to secrets or to shameful that show any what you decide the classic justification for not sharing such intelligence is normally that you know there are affiliated elements within iran and so probably such intelligence could be leaked
but at the end of the day you know if there is something serious then probably at least there needs to be some intelligence cooperation the united states never has the whole truth probably they need the iraqi side its side of the story or version of the events so they would go and have a certain committee under the umbrella you know under which they are cooperating and say look we have this what do you have on the incident but it could well be that the united states not sharing the information means that they actually don't have in from information and that they just want to use this incident in particular as a pretext for doing whatever they wanted to do it in the 1st place. staying in the region the u.s. appears to be on similarly shaky ground in afghanistan to pentagon troops have been killed and 6 wounded and now in the heart province in the east of the country an afghan soldier opened fire after an argument according to local officials an
individual an afghan uniform opened fire on the combined u.s. and afghan forces with machine gun we are still collecting information on the cause or motive behind the attack is our moon at this time. u.s. troops are facing growing hostility in the country coming under increasing attacks washington has been trying to reach a peace deal with the taliban and in his state of the union address president trump said u.s. soldiers are not meant to serve as law enforcement agencies for other nations like much of a research analyst at the center for conflict and peace studies says afghans will want american forces out. with all of the collateral damage that's happening with all the civilian casualties that's happening the best the american you know someone that the americans actually helped to become the president the former president hamid karzai he's even speaking against the americans and criticizing the americans for whatever they're doing in the coming and he thinks the american presence in
afghanistan is a problem there's no doubt that. one point when eventually you would want the americans to leave because no country wants to live under a competition and this is what you strong for afghanistan. lastly some world news in brief starting with pictures of the spectacular launch of the solar orbiter to study the inner workings of our nearest star. 3. 0. and liftoff. the joint nasa and european space agency craft was launched from florida's air force station on sunday night it will provide the 1st high resolution images of the sun's poles but you're going. to india now where thousands have joined a rally led by in far right party leader some 600 police officers were deployed to provide security as protesters called for the deportation of illegal migrants.
and the north coast of france has been placed on high alert trains and flights canceled as storms here approach as heavy winds are already shaking the port city of killing. that's all for this hour. here's why it's right if you're looking for more head over to our web site r.t. dot com for countless articles and interviews exciting and. join me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. you know world of big partisan movies a lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to
so right now we're driving through both neighborhoods and you can see time and distance from each gang. so this is jordan. this is the territory claimed by the green street crips during war time bonnie hunt is no less likely to come in here because this is one way in an art and one way out so once you come in and do a shooting you're trapped in their neighborhood and they can return fire so it's not the safest way to to avenge a shooting so often they'll go on the outskirts of the neighborhood hoping to get a great street kripke that's a lot of times when innocent people get shot. so in the next couple of days someone from this development most likely will go over towards nickerson like they have the last couple of days and commit a shooting and vice versa so all these neighborhoods now are in play.
for him you know. several months ago. a gentleman with the moniker of menace from 15 hero was caught inside the gang territory of the village voice a couple of the village boys. went outside jumped on menace beat him down stuffed a minister ask you. and. they took the trash day and brought him back behind another house and tortured them they sodomized him they sliced him up with a machete and when they sliced him up they put in the end his chest the village voice. and then they continued to torture and then they wrapped him up in a rug burned and dumped him in long beach there's one thing about beating a guy down or killing them but the torture of the sodomy all that stuff that's that's just what gang members do so they fall menace right around here.
