12:06 am
intended target, the president hailed him a hero.'s death and the up-tempo strikes here chilling the cities otherwise resilient mood.>> the mayor told me as well that he feels that residence should leave the city, that is been his message for some time, the original population or the war was 480,000, it's now down to 230,000 but is very clear message for people is the city is not safe, you need to leave until the schelling tops.>> nic robertson, joining is there live from mykolaiv with that message, appreciate it. ukrainian and turkish officials say the first ship carrying ukrainian grain has left the port of odesa, expected to arrive in this day and bull tuesday before heading to the final destination, and the exports could be a crucial
12:07 am
first step in easing the global food crisis, sparked by the war, trapping millions of tons of grain inside ukraine for month. clare sebastian joins me from london, with more. good morning. the first green ship has left odesa, what more are you learning? >> we are hearing from the joint coordination center, part of this black see green initiative brokered by the un in turkey that brought russia and ukraine to the table to try to get the grain shipments to global markets. they authorize the ship, a sierra leone flagged vessel, to sit there from odesa this morning, we can see it moving and satellite maps, heading out of the port of odesa, to transition into turkish territorial waters, were it will be inspected, part of the agreement and carry on through the bosporus and finally through tripoli in lebanon,
12:08 am
said to be carrying 26,000 tons of corn set to a very welcome move set to leave ukraine and head to the global markets, but this is a critical first test, only 10 days ago russia and ukraine, with you and in turkey agreeing on the initiative to get the grain out to global markets. the first ship will be a critical test of whether the system actually works and whether there's enough trust on both sides, to get the shipments moving in a meaningful way to alleviate hunger and some of the most vulnerable parts of the world. >> we wanted to get an idea of what the process is and how do they ensure that this grain shipment and others in the convoy, have safe passage? >> ukraine is responsibility initially of navigating the ship report, they have apparently d mind some of the gray areas, was that the whole
12:09 am
the black sea, they are extremely worried that any d mining will allow russian ships open to attack the reports. but the captains navigating the ships into the waters of the black see, and then are inspected and turkish territorial waters by the joint coordination center and allowed to travel through the bosporus and onto their onward destinations, ships going back into ukrainian ports are inspected in case some might be smuggling weapons, there are a lot of inspections and oversight, joint coronation center is monitoring the movements of the ships, keeping a close eye on any ships moving through these safe maritime core doors in the black sea. a very complicated intense and dangerous moment, it's been about five months now since we've seen exports from the ports and ukraine got so as i said a very important first test as to how the process will go.

12:12 am
is a serious event, the water table is risen so high that the soil is saturated, any additional rainfall, one-2 edges, could lead to surface flooding, a concern for so many people in recent days, who have suffered so much, and there's diminished risk during the tuesday but any additional rainfall could be an inch or 2 inches could come down, it could be problematic. northwestern area, temperatures in the 90s 100, seattle, 95 degrees, record temperature, six consecutive days exceeding 90 degrees, never happening in recorded history, across the inland areas temperatures could get as hot as 110, but along seattle and portland, the cooling trend, and around 70 degrees, and latter portion of the week. is expected to return across worsens of the northwest,

12:15 am
out in california and oregon border, near the klamath river, creating their own weather, thunderstorms that create lightning, fire breathing dragon storms, pyro cumulonimbus clouds creating headlines as fire crews rushed of that. it plays out against the backdrop of politics, and washington, after what seemed like all climate legislation was dead, a compromise bill led by joe manchin, and west virginia and chuck schumer of new york, gives the most money the united states is ever put towards the cause but delayed drop in the bucket when you consider the problem. there will be billions incentives for people to buy electric vehicles and more innovation and more technology, and construction the country, some money for climate capture or carbon capture storage, which could be a huge industry but the same time exxon mobil and shell and chevron released quarterly profits of $40
12:16 am

12:21 am
none of those contacts have since tested positive. in the coming hours, the senate majority leader chuck schumer is expected to hold another procedural vote to break a filibuster after a group of republicans blocked what's known as the burn pitt bill.>> power!>> mcconnell coward!>> they took to the steps of the capitol this weekend to express their anger at 25 republican lawmakers who pulled their support for the bill that would expand medical coverage for millions of troops who were exposed to toxins from the military's so-called burn pits during their time in service. one republican senator defended his decision.>> this is the oldest trick in washington, people take a sympathetic group of americans, it could be children with an illness or victims of crime or veterans
12:22 am
exposed to toxic chemicals, craft a bill to address their problems and sneak in something completely unrelated that they know could never pass on its own and day republicans to do anything about it because they know they will unleash their allies in the media and may be ace to the liberty to make up false accusations, a pseudo- celebrity.>> a lot of fast ones are pulled in washington dc, quite honestly nobody steps up to the plate and stops that kind of stuff from happening that happens like an overseas contingency account, exactly the kind of fund that center 2- d -- center to me thinks is in the bill but is not, past to keep the war going in afghanistan, that's why we are talking about burn pits today. there is no fast one, the same bill that we passed on 16 june, and it should be passed
12:23 am
again.>> in the meantime, democratic editor joe manchin is defending his support of a massive new climate and healthcare package, surprising democrats and outraging republicans after announcing he and majority leader chuck schumer agreed on a 739 billion- dollar plan to tackle the climate crisis and reduce the deficit. on sunday he touted the benefits of the bill and dismissed republican claims that it will make inflation worse. >> there is nothing inflammatory in this bill even though there are some naysayers your always good to hear that but nothing in that, we are paying down debt, $300 billion and increasing production, if you want gasoline prices down, produce more energy and produce it in america that's what were doing, and investing in technologies for future energy, we are doing everything to bring manufacturing back in the people working i think it is a
12:24 am
great piece of legislation and in normal times my republican colleagues would be for something like this.>> democrats are hoping to pass the bill before the senate leaves for its scheduled august recess. for more, let's bring in jessica levinson, a professor at loyola law school in los angeles and host of the passing judgment podcasts, always happy to have you with us. >> good to be here. >> a lot going on in u.s. politics, the big picture, recently writing this in the washington post, fareed zakaria, is it possible that president joe biden is actually managing to do something he promised during his campaign, govern from the center? saying this, after a compromise deal was worked out between joe manchin and majority leader chuck schumer on climate change and before that, notable achievements on semiconductor
12:25 am
production, gun control and infrastructure. is joe biden showing that governing from the middle as possible?>> i think he's doing the best he can under the circumstances and there are some changes, you just did them often those of the changes but they are a lot less than i think democrats wanted and a lot less frankly in some areas than the majority of americans wanted, think about gun control and climate change, we see movement but i don't think it is what frankly americans expected when they elected a democrat to the white house, democrats control the house and the senate, so joe biden is governing from the center in 2022, which means giving concessions and getting in a lot of areas frankly incremental change. >> and he said being a big tent party is hard but in a large diverse country of 359 people,
12:26 am
it's the only way to gain working majorities in denver rats are now better positioned than republicans to achieve a broad repeal, do you agree with that assessment? >> it is a little bit rosy for my perspective but it is true that democrats have had to be the big tent party, of course america is different than so many other countries because we really only have 2 major parties, so particularly democrats have a variety of different perspectives, different stakeholders and constituencies that they have to play two, so even within the party there's a lot of compromise before the come forward with a position. republicans tend to be a lot more organized and on point and there tends to be less problems trying to bring everyone into the fold, because they are frankly already on talking points. the big question is, can you keep something like the joe biden coalition together with the midterms, can democrats do
12:27 am
that? i think this helps them but we are having this conversation obviously in the summer, the midterms are about 99 days away. >> that's the problem, why has it taken president biden so long to get to this point, and is it too late for him to rally sufficient support ahead of the midterms? >> a lot of the midterms does have to do with whether or not there is little slit of achievement but a lot of the midterms has to do with what is happening with respect to the economy and inflation. for reasons that are both fair and unfair, voters really blame the president of the party in power when it cost them more to do everything and when the economy is not a good place, and losing their jobs, i think the big decision when it comes to the midterms is not january 6, it is not actually these significant but still legislative incremental achievements, not governing style, it is the economy over
12:28 am
which they have in a lot of ways limited control. >> i had to ask you this, we are questioning why the biden administration has struggled to communicate some pretty impressive achievements like low unemployment, and uniting the eu and nato against russia and the war on ukraine, the climate change deal that could be the largest deficit reduction, and by parsing gun- control legislation passed in a generation and $1 trillion infrastructure bill, they should be reminding people of the achievements every single day but they are not, that is reflected in his low approval ratings, why have they feel to get that message out do you think? >> that is a question they are asking themselves and democrats up and down the ticket and throw the country are asking themselves, it does feel like the present -- president is on the defensive. we know the 2020 election was
12:29 am
unique and has as much to say about not being in favor of president trump as it is in favor of president biden, and democratic symbols and policy goals, but the biden administration has not done a fantastic job at messaging and i think a lot of that has been gobbled up in our current, i hate this phrase but information ecosystem, there is so much disinformation and chaos, and were people i think in some ways have tuned out, and more focused on things that are not within the president's control, which is how much does it cost me at the gas station. >> it seems to get down to that, jessica levinson, thank you for urinalysis, as always. u.s. house make >> -- u.s. house speaker, nancy

12:34 am
minister along with cabinet members and business leaders. in tokyo, blake joins us now, good to see you, what more have you learned about whether she intends to include taiwan and her upcoming asia trip and what the consequences might be if she does.>> rosemary, we will have to wait and see, whether or not she visits china, is absolutely going to have a reaction, speaker of the house nancy pelosi has kicked off her tour of asia, after refueling in hawaii, singapore is the first of them are for plans tops, according to a statement released by the office, including malaysian south korea and japan, despite recent speculation that the speaker would be making a fist stop in taiwan the statement made no mention of the self governed island, it doesn't mean that the rumored visit won't in fact take place, abnormal -- admiral
12:35 am
mike mullen who was with private citizens, says he thinks a surprise visit to taiwan as possible, take a listen.>> she has been there many times, and that area of the world, feeling strongly about supporting the kind of values that we stand for, and working with our friends, so again, taiwan has been a friend for a long time. particularly in a bipartisan way. it would not surprise me if she went.>> the omission of taiwan from the speaker's agenda is similar to what we've seen this part of the world, expressed doubt that not listing taiwan and the itinerary is consistent with the one china policy, acknowledging beijing's position that taiwan is part of
12:36 am
china. he taiwan premier was asked about the potential visit today and as you might like to didn't have an answer to the question whether or not she will be visiting the island. he said that taipei warmly welcomes any foreign vips trends visit taiwan and that the government will make appropriate arrangements facilitate in the visits by foreign guests, experts say taiwanese authorities are likely keeping a low profile to avoid the perception that taipei is encouraging these acres visit, which could provoke beijing, whether her visit to taiwan happens or not, tensions of the taiwan strait have intensified with the simple prospect of her visit in region china, beijing has vowed to respond in some chinese analyst suggested that response could involve the military and while there is no and tatian it is related to a pelosi visit, just this past week, china conducted live fire across the taiwan strait with chinese
12:37 am
state media reporting that another drill planned to take place in the south china sea is set to start tomorrow and run through saturday, and over the weekend a pla air force spokesperson addressed the importance of conducting fly run operation of taiwan, meant to enhance the capability to defend china's sovereignty and territorial integrity. it's worth pointing out that for at least a year china has been frequently filing flying warplanes into the self defense identification zone which is different from the sovereign airspace, incursions put pressure on taiwan's air force to scramble its own fighter jets to warn away the chinese aircraft, the people's liberation army is celebrating army day today, during the annual celebration they typically reveal some of the latest weaponry, and these recent drills conducted by the pla and the fly run operations are likely plans in advance and unrelated to a possible visit to taiwan by the speaker of the

12:39 am
influential shia clerk, cleric, moktada al-sadr, calling for supporters to take to the streets, his supporters have largely made up the majority of the demonstrators demonstrations, the driving force behind this latest protest but in the statement he described demonstrations as a golden opportunity for all the rockies to bring about political reform, and these protests were sparked wednesday in response to the nomination of the rival, on monday for the position of prime minister. this follows months and months of political deadlock, and unable for almost 10 months though to form a government and actually he and almost 70 of his lawmakers issued a mass resignation in june, in protest to this political deadlock. although the protests were sparked in opposition to the
12:40 am
nomination on monday, they have evolving gain momentum, calling for a complete overhaul of the political system in iraq, demanding that parliament be dissolved and elections be held, they told demonstrators that this is an opportunity to bring reform to the political system as a whole, constitutional and electoral form, accusing his opponents and others over presiding over corruption and injustice and working for the interests of iran as opposed to the iraqi people, in response we saw thousands marching toward the iraqi parliament, where they have been staging a citizen of the weekend and we had teams on the ground in baghdad speaking the protesters of the weekend, many saying there simply fed up with the stagnation that we have seen in the political system over the last few months of the country, dealing with an economic crisis, rising unemployment and poor living conditions, they also want change but the question is
