a little more all right it's time to boost your news i knew. foreign ministers from the g 7 nations are meeting in person in london england the objective is to lay down the groundwork for when g 7 leaders meet in the u.k. in june and from what we've seen so far we can expect a lot of talk about china and russia are to use alex smile which has the story. together but distanced for the 1st time in 2 years foreign ministers from g 7 nations are meeting this time in london well the covert 19 pandemic and climate change are expected to take up much of the agenda discussions about china and russia are also making the top of the list with the u.s. and u.k. taking the lead on this subject any country. china or otherwise takes actions that
8:02 pm
challenge or undermine or seek to erode that rules based order and not make good on the commitments that they've made. to that order we will we will stand up and defend the order but what's going to change is russia's behavior against as a p 5 member of the security council against the basic norms of international law while some see the claims of veering from basic norms or hypocritical at best russia has called allegations from the west 80 russian hysteria and china says the west is a bully nonetheless the push continues the u.k. has invited non g 7 allies such as australia south korea india and south africa to the meeting in what some say is an effort to rally the nations to create a united voice against china and russia say that said is both the u.s. and u.k. emphasized that diplomacy is not an off the table very well and it is the preferred
8:03 pm
method to resolve the international issues but we are not looking to escalate we would prefer to have a more stable more predictable relationship and if russia moves in that direction. so will we and i think president biden will have an opportunity when he meets with president putin. to talk about that directly we we look to the opportunities we want a constructive relationship with china but on things whether it's intellectual property theft or standing up for human rights in hong kong mentioned john we see we're going to be very clear on all the news sources say that 1. 1 objective of the upcoming g. 7 summit is to counter the myriad of that the west is in decline and that china and russia are giving geo political clout the g. 7 summit is scheduled to take place in the united kingdom next month for r t i'm alex miller look at each. and for more on this will go to our panel today
8:04 pm
former professor now managing editor of covert action magazine and author of the russians are coming again jeremy koos rob is joining us and host of news with rick sanchez mr rick sanchez jeremy 1st over to you in pretty plain language i think secretary of state tony blinken and his u.k. counterpart dominic rabb said that the main goal for the g 7 right now is to contain russia and china what can we extrapolate from that kind of rhetoric well one thing that's not widely being reported as too naval vessels have been sent into the black sea it has a blinking is slated to travel to ukraine with the tory nuland later in the week i believe so i mean there's talk of you know that we don't want war i mean that's seen as a very threatening action you know it's russia was sending ships in the gulf of mexico americans would be up in arms so i think we've seen you know a very aggressive stance towards russia as well as china that's
8:05 pm
a very dangerous right now by the you know by the minister ation continuing from what's going on for at least the last 8 years and rick you have covered this sort of stuff for a long time i mean do you recall a time where the former g 8 that used to include russia would use this kind of language and how does that translate to the average joe who is hearing this kind of i guess tough talk on the news. you know it's interesting i like the way he was issuing that question because it makes me think of my own life and let's not let's face it i'm no spring chicken anymore so i've been around for quite awhile and throughout my life what i've seen is that when i was a very young man the world seemed to constantly be on the edge of war it was always a buck possibly starting a nuclear war and we all were being taught to duck and cover and then something wonderful happened and that is that there seemed to be some type of movement toward
8:06 pm
peace between russia and the united states and china so that a cold war mentality has been dissipating throughout most of my life but i'm 62 years old you know the past oh who last decade i see the start to go in. the other direction it's almost like were bracing some kind of being on the edge of nuclear proliferation we suddenly embrace being a cold war with countries who are reaching out to us and saying we want to be on your team i mean we're going to do right now but america has offered to join nato he says why do you guys want to be against me i want to be a part of what you're doing and russia is not with us all what a country offers an olive branch the least you can do is hear them out and we're living in a time in the united states be it to politics or something else where we don't want
8:07 pm
to hear people are we've chosen that you're good or you are bad and that's the way it's going to stay and it's not going to change it and it's not in our and it's wrong yeah jeremy also ahead of this trip to london tony blinken accuse china repression at home and aggression a bride now 1st of all is that true i mean given a lot of people could say that this is hypocritical fence it's china who is working on economic prosperity projects like the new silk road and the last time i checked it wasn't china who invaded the middle east. yeah i mean if you look at you know xinjiang in the muslim issue i mean look at how the united states has dealt you know the war on terror they bomb countries you know afghanistan the media barely reports on the human costs of the afghan war i mean china's not bombings in g.m. and you know it's in a look at an africa i mean chinese do a lot of infrastructure projects in africa and the united states has been building
8:08 pm
drone bases and militarizing the african continent so you know it's just divorced from reality and if you look at human rights unfortunately the united states record has you know greatly to be desired whether it's the prison system here in the united states or whether it's u.s. action in country like afghanistan or iraq or libya so china china obviously sees a double standard with these comments and sees how human rights become very politicized and used just to mobilize public opinion against them and that's part of what rick was discussing this thrust towards confrontation and war when these are countries who express openness towards cooperation and toward working together to solve global problems which is what we should be doing well jeremy further to that i mean you hear people on capitol hill saying you know america shouldn't be a nation building but when you compare it to places like china like you said that
8:09 pm
are investing in infrastructure projects all around the world should america probably do some nation building after much of our military have gone in to destroy those nations. well i think you know joe biden kind of woke up late there was a little conversation in january between joe biden boris johnson where they joe biden said oh look at china's one belt one road we need our own one belt one road and it's kind of waking up late in the game but maybe they'll move in this direction and you don't see that china's approach to the so-called developing world is a lot better that it brings benefit i mean you know china you know has some exploitive practices like in africa you know they have interests the mineral wealth. the same time they have you know helped to uplift various countries and economies and they won a lot of support and now africa and around the world and i think you know by then johnson realized that 'd maybe now those sorts of sorts move in that direction instead of the us invading and bombing so many countries and building more you know
8:10 pm
drone bases yeah absolutely wreck secretary blinken is able to use the kind of language that we're hearing him say against china because he has the support of the us name stream media i mean everywhere you look china is being accused of genocide of the weavers with no physical evidence and as they say no body no crime so is this part of the u.s. playbook to continue the trump policy on china but under biden. one of the saddest things that's happening right now in this particular generation you're alluding to is that we're witnessing the demise of journalists. in the relationship with their government that is what we are trying to do that is what we are supposed to do we are supposed to have a healthy at the serial leadership with the government of the united sticks we
8:11 pm
haven't failed in that mission instead what we have become is. the us media chooses its government rather than questioning its government the only time they question it is if they're doing it for ideological reasons based on their particular identity i personally see question the republican president fox news will question the democratic president but neither one is really questioning for the sake of what's healthy for our country in other words there was a time when journalism in america meant that if we thought a car country was doing something wrong these are the vietnam era we question the actions of the nothing we said to our own government you're wrong and i want you to prove to us why you're doing what you're doing today anyone that we go into is a good war and enemy that our leaders say isn't their enemy we just say aye aye sir
8:12 pm
ok i guess there are adamant that's wrong and they're giving them carte blanche to do what they're doing and it's all agreed when they know that the media is not going to hold them to account for these politicians run amok well put gentlemen care because rob and rick sanchez thank you both for weighing in. thank you. and then as well as released a group of american oil executives from prison 3 years after being incarcerated on charges including corruption and money laundering now there really is potentially signals a possible attempt by nicolas maduro to reach out to the biden administration argues john how he has more. the so-called citgo 6 have been released from prison in venezuela more than 3 years after being arrested all 6 have been confined to house arrest at least for now anyway 5 of the former oil executives are naturalized u.s. citizens and one is a permanent u.s. resident back in november 2017 the executives were ordered to attend
8:13 pm
a budget meeting at the headquarters of the venezuelan state oil company p d.v.s. a which on sicko when they arrived mass security agents then jumped and arrested the man they were charged with corruption money laundering and embezzlement among other things all of which they denied the u.s. has repeatedly called for their release saying they were jailed unlawfully back in 2019 the 6 men were also released and confined to house arrest but were thrown back in jail the very same day when vend president trump invited venezuelan opposition leader juan why go to the white house his latest release is being seen as a goodwill gesture by nicolas maduro to the biden administration as it reviews america's policies towards venezuela but as of now washington doesn't appear to be easing u.s. sanctions on the beleaguered country venezuela continues to struggle economically with cove in 1000 pandemic only making matters worse before the pandemic
8:14 pm
exacerbated venezuela's already fledgling economy the u.s. sent humanitarian aid there but it was stopped at the colombian border a new report by the inspector general at the u.s. agency for international development raises doubts however if the aid was driven by venezuela's humanitarian needs as the country was gripped by mass demonstrations and violent protests or more so a u.s. push for a change in venezuela's government the report reads to address urgent humanitarian needs and restore democratic governance to venezuela the u.s. government's key foreign policy goals were to one support why doe's legitimacy as the interim president of venezuela and to increase pressure on model. to step down as president accordingly usa prioritized to the venezuelan people in coordination with the interim president the report may not come as too much of a surprise though as the tribune ministration adamantly supported why do the question now will the biden ministration stay on the same political course for are

could bring about other risks were pretty important question a toss just sweeps our teeth. so president joe biden is only the 2nd catholic us president ever behind john f. kennedy being the 1st but back in the 1960 s. the political landscape was not so complicated for progressive minded catholics well that all changed when abortion was legalized in the 1970 s. archies rachel blevins takes a quick look at how the president's political life might now impact his religious life. a catholic priest. did not give you communion he said it was because of your position on abortion were you offended by that as a private matter i'm not going to talk about that but there are so many time it's ever happened we didn't talk about it he went to the press about it in lane 2019 a catholic priest in south carolina denied now president joseph biden a practicing catholic holy communion while at mass the stated reason by the priest
8:23 pm
in the diocese bishop was biden's persistent and political views that are pro-abortion according to buy that this was the only time it ever happened but now more and more priests are calling for the president to be denied communion over his pro-abortion policies loudest among the most recent calls has been san francisco archbishop salvatore quarterly on in a recent statement he said that quote if you find that you are unwilling or unable to abandon your advocacy for abortion you should not come forward to receive holy communion it has been interpreted as a director of you to house speaker nancy pelosi and president by that so far the united states conference of catholic bishops has yet to make any determination on biden's eligibility to receive communion however canon law states that anyone obstinately purser veering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted in holy
8:24 pm
communion for now it appears the issue will be determined by the individual priest or bishop administering communion to the president given pope francis and president biden's friendly relationship it seems unlikely that the hierarchy of the catholic church will come down on one side of the issue or the other reporting in washington for an question rachel blevins artsy. and turn of events president biden is now raising the refugee cap 262500 this year the president announced that move on monday. increasing it from the trumpet ministrations initial 15000 limit biden also announced the goal is to admit 125000 refugees by the year 2022. and here's a weird story for you amazon is now polling its drivers about their bathroom habits this week multiple drivers shared screenshots of recent polls they were sent by the company it's apparently in response to some reports in the past alleging drivers
