welcome back now corona virus cases a surging again in the united states friday saw 70000 new infects the infections recorded the highest figure since july throughout the pandemic to new york has remained in the top 5 states when it comes to covert cases and president trump has laid the blame squarely at the feet of the governor andrew cuomo new york it has been the worst of the been our country but $40000.00 deaths new york is doing very badly please don't to be real if your job cuomo well new york's governor does claim that a lot of progress is actually being made in the situation is stabilized but just like trump many do blame local authorities for the chaos of the past few months kill a pop in a small. they call it the big apple the city of dreams the capital of capitalism but 7 months into the pandemic new york city is not doing too well and local
12:13 pm
government is catching the blame it's incredible how little we have learned in 7 months well they better start learning pretty fast at this point we've seen gun violence on the rise rapidly the f.b.i. and the u.s. attorney are looking to intervene my perception is is that this city in certain other pockets has become an environment which is too permissive for armed criminal offenders to walk the streets at the peril of the public in addition to that we've got the new york city police department they are bracing for massive underestimate following the presidential election this november 3rd will be one of the most highly contested presidential elections in the modern era we should anticipate and prepare for protests growing in size frequency and intensity leading up to the election and likely into the year 2021 broadway is staying shut down until summer
12:14 pm
of 2021 lots of lost jobs and lots of lost profits furthermore the historic roosevelt hotel has been forced to close there are no tourists to book their room now other hotels have been used to house homeless people and keep them off the streets during the pandemic a public health measure however residents of those neighborhoods are not thrilled about their new neighbors and they are suing the city the city has reacted recklessly and to radically by repeatedly uprooting these individuals based on political pressure hospitalizations for covert 19 are now starting to rise once again local officials have a lot of problems on their hands and for every problem they solve 10 more seem to pop up they look mop and r.t. new york. now israel pushed forward this week with plans for thousands of settlement homes in the west bank yeah but he has slammed the move and it does come
12:15 pm
less than a month off the israel bahrain and the u.a.e. agreed to normalize relations. the netanyahu government's insistence on moving forward with settlement activity to satisfy the extreme right wing reflects its rejection of this solution and even its commitment to destroy the chances of achieving it in the future when the expansion plans announced are the biggest since 2012 according to israeli ngo peace now israel claims it is storable and biblical ties to the west bank where around half a 1000000 israeli settlers live alongside nearly 3000000 palestinians earlier this year israel agreed to freeze the formal annexation of the west bank under the us middle east plan spearheaded by president trump however palestinians claim the deal actually greenlights israeli settlement activities meanwhile he when human rights observers to still have been denied access to israel and also the palestinian territories back in february israeli authorities announced that the country was
12:16 pm
suspending ties with the un human rights watchdog that after a report was published naming more than 100 israeli companies working illegally in west bank settlements but absence of international stars from the occupied territories a highly irregular situation will negatively impact on now billeted to carry out our mandate we continue to hope that the situation will be resolved soon and we're actively engaged with various relevant and concerned parties do that and it's right for human rights watch in israel are marcia care believes that the severing of ties between israel and the un human rights watchdog fits in with the country's long standing policy. this is clearly being done as an effort to muzzle documentation and advocacy around israel systematic repression of palestinians and i should say it's not a one off issue i was deported myself after being more than 2 and a half years based on the ground as human rights watch as israel palestine director
12:17 pm
based on our work on the ground as well and it's part of a long standing trend and it's part of a sustained assault on the human rights movement while the u.s. has historically always you know shielded israel from accountability and turned a blind eye to. this us administration is taking it a step further and even giving the green light for these abuses to continue sort of should come to no surprise that we see settlement activities at unprecedented levels sturrock leaks and continued efforts to entrench this discriminatory reality . and i washington and moscow remain at loggerheads over the extension of a major new control treaty the us has pushed back against russia's proposal to extend it for another year as the details as the clock ticks on the last remaining u.s. russian arms control treaty the united states and russia seem to be locked in a stalemate when most of us suggesting an unconditional 5 year extension of the
12:18 pm
treaty the u.s. wants quite extensive changes which has called quite simply unrealistic now speaking early on find a president putin made a strong call to save the pact. i have a suggestion to prolong the existing treaty without any conditions for at least one year in order to have the opportunity to hold talks on all the matters regulated by such treaties and not to leave all the countries in the world interested in the preservation of strategic stability without such a fundamental document as the strategic arms reduction treaty and things between the 2 have escalated quite quickly with the us even responding with threats if the conditions are not less. the united states is serious about arms control that will keep the entire world safe we hope that russia will re-evaluate its position before a costly arms race ensues now the issue is that washington wants a framework for a new trilateral treaty that covers all nuclear warheads and includes those of china in the future something which russia has objected to in the new strategic
12:19 pm
arms reduction treaty otherwise known as the new start treaty was signed in 2010 by u.s. president barack obama and russian president dmitry medvedev and the plan to limits each country to no more than $1550.00 deployed nuclear warheads and $700.00 deployed missiles and bombers and envisages sweeping on site inspections to verify compliance but the treaty is set to expire in february 2021 so time is really of the essence here and the lack of an agreement and of course the tone of rhetoric between the 2 sides has raised concerns within the e.u. when it is imperative that the russian within the e.u. when it is imperative that the russian federation and united states of america extend with. the new start treaty for the duration of 5 years. for the sake of all of our security the world must return to a common past wars nuclear designs now as you may remember last year saw the
12:20 pm
breakdown of the 987 intermediate range nuclear forces treaty so the new start is the only a nuclear arms control pact between the 2 sides that remains so needless to say the stakes are extremely high. in washington. and washington would your judgment. increase the. existence of all these weapons. point i think there were points there were more. points the new coach of war or the last 30 years or so you know there are some. interests in the united states considerable arms surveillance arms production or arms production. military industrial spending is the most. likely won't cost for that new and. so there are very strong elements
12:21 pm
in the united states and in the trunk. oh no we're just sitting here and you aren't very close not meeting immense immense profits. and watching r.t. just coming up to half possibly meaning hey remote sky so that's how i things in the kinks so far today we're back again as usual at the top of the. still i just know that the get a list of all of this. i want to look at what why did why do you know. how lucky. we hope to be but there
12:22 pm
are also friends that the us are still so but the still hoping to do something this year. which. should. be about the fact that there's a plurality going to bomb was put on one of that you know we'll look at that. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic developments only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. americans
12:23 pm
love by and all. this was a fundamental part of how our political leadership and our country a large understood the bargain you get a whole and then you know rebel right as the things you don't revolt if you. have a stake in the system. be really interesting dialing back and think about the longer deeper history housings man in the united states not just at all the question of the american dream but the bigger question if you dream is for.
12:24 pm
