6:01 am
a seven year suspension. the state's really doing something the people don't want and the reason why is because there are fifty six. executives in you take up. and they have financial interests. around the clock across the world this is r.t.d. international from the team and myself and you know neal hello and welcome our top story donald trump's national security advisor john bolton's in moscow for talks with russia's foreign minister the visit comes after president trump announced he was taking the u.s. nuclear arms treaty with russia while also going to develop new weapons well the treaty was signed back in nineteen eighty seven between then soffit union and the united states under the agreement to all range nuclear conventional missiles were
6:02 am
eliminated apart from those launched from the sea. well all ice they know on this john bolton's visit to see what comes of that for more on this has crossed our t's igor down off igor well indeed as you said sergey lavrov russia's top diplomat is expected to meet with the man seen as one biggest champion of for scraping all of this i.n.f. treaty i should say and this is of course john bolton the national security adviser for the u.s. president donald trump but while the big debate is ongoing whether or not the american president is indeed making the right call while russia's top diplomats aguilar of this morning's press conference here stressed that this could be indeed too early for any speculation have a lesson. in usual in regards to the u.s. position on the i.n.f. treaty i have yet to see the decision by the u.s.
6:03 am
president i have only heard about his intentions as i have also seen some of the reactions to it that's been mixed some support that others have urged the u.s. not to turn down the whole system of arms control both nuclear and conventional you but let's not speculate at this point as that would be counterproductive let's wait for official clarification if john bolton is ready to do so we are happy to hear it and we'll make our position clear based on a clear statement of withdrawal procedure has so far not been activated. well russia's foreign minister has also stressed that russia has been committed to this deal from the moment it signed it and he also pointed out that russia also has been calling for the problem geisha in of the deadline of this deal which is right now twenty twenty nine circular of did also add though that if trump puts his money
6:04 am
where his words are well russia will will respond with counter action and in fact we action is already has been pouring from all over the globe the chinese have warned that the unilateral pull pulling out of the deal on behalf of the united states will have a multi lateral effect sort of like a chain reaction and one thing to understand about this deal is many experts view it as a very one sided deal in favor of the united states to cut the long story short is it does not really effect america's key military strategies while it does impair russia's and then back then soviet union's ability for a quick military build up and that's why the european union right now it feels increasingly threatened for example the french president i'm annoyed mccrone has called this i.n.f. treaty key for european security and also he's not the only one the announcement by the us that it's going to withdraw from the i.m.f.
6:05 am
accord is regrettable the i.m.f. agreement has been important pillar of our european security architecture for thirty years for us in europe it's of great importance we call on the us to consider the possible consequences. so indeed right now the only thing to do is to look forward to this meeting between the sergey lavrov and john bolton and whether or not john bolton's hawkish stance will stand here and mosco he had a few talking points are certainly expected you are showing off bringing us the latest. of tension has indeed been growing between moscow and washington over the pact for quite some time here's a look at how we reached this point. this is how you sort out a major nuclear crisis and make the world a bit more of a safer place ninety eighty seven the u.s.
6:06 am
and soviet leaders got together and banned ground launched intermediate range ballistic missiles and this is an example of how leaders can perhaps make the world more dangerous brush as violated the agreement they've been violated to get for many years that i don't know why president obama didn't negotiate or pull out. and we're not going to let them violate a nuclear agreement and go out and do weapons and we're not allowed to wear the ones that have stated in the agreement and we bonded to agreement but russia has not fortunately honored the agreement so we're going to terminate the agreement we're going to pull out well donald trump does have someone to learn from i have concluded the a.b.m. treaty hinders our government's ability to develop ways. to protect our people from future terrorists or rogue state missile attacks the united states of america.
6:07 am
is withdrawing from this almost thirty year old treaty. at the turn of the century george w. bush pulled out of a nine hundred seventy two pact designed to put the brakes on both countries from constantly outdoing each other's nuclear forces freed from the shackles of the treaty washington announced the deployment of a missile defense system in europe and there's no better symbol of our desire to work for peace and security than working on a missile defense system a missile defense system that would provide. security for europe for russia having new nukes right on its doorstep posed a new security threat plans to expand certain elements of the missile defense system to europe cannot help but disturb us who needs the next step would be in this case and inevitable arms race the us missile shield started operating in romania twenty six staying some elements were also deployed in poland and for
6:08 am
a long russia's western borders were pretty much taken care of moscow began to respond by modernizing its weapons to match the belittling of the humans and the possession of such weapons provides major advantages and wolfen to phenomenal speed make them on still people from missile and defense systems washington wasn't happy at all russia has developed been developing destabilizing weapon systems for more than a decade in direct violation of its treaty obligations ickes ations came in one after another the white house and the country learning of that new threat from russian president warning adverse reason and in the west in particular not to mess with russia computer graphics of missiles flying over mountains and heading over ocean. and he says he's not bluffing and so we got to the point when another nuclear safeguards bit the dust is the world now up for another arms race it might
6:09 am
well be a question of when not if the security architecture of the european. writ large space is a very important thing and the problem is that security architecture is broken there shouldn't be a western front for russian security there shouldn't be an eastern front for european nato these things shouldn't exist at this point in the twenty first century we don't need this class of weapons why don't we just do away with it and find other ways to get along better that don't involve voluntarily you know eliminating classes of weapons. graveyard soil coffin nails and some revenge oil what a coven of witches in new york used to place a hex on us supreme court justice brett kavanaugh this past weekend he was recently appointed to the lifetime position after facing sexual misconduct allegations well
6:10 am
the event was met with protesters condemning at the sorcery well a catholic priest an exorcist attempted to conjure the dark magic by seeing a mass heal up and for one last spell behind. so we're here in brooklyn where a group of pagan witches have gathered to place a hex on the newly confirmed supreme court justice brett kavanaugh now in the statement for the event ascension today said that black magic is a mechanism for exacting justice by women who have been wronged by men just like him now the ceremony is taking place at this a cult bookstore behind me. now here in liberal brooklyn witchcraft wicca might just be considered be another hobby or fascination but in some parts of the country it's no laughing matter there are schools around the country where the harry potter books are forbidden from the
6:11 am
school library because christian parents are offended by the witchcraft content and there's been cases where satanists and wiccan practitioners have gone to court demanding their religious freedom needless to say tonight ceremony did not sit well with a number of trump supporters it is a scary time right now i mean there's a list of things going on now you've got witches that are placing a head on brett kavanaugh now a catholic priest who's been trained in rome as a bonafide exorcist says he will be conducting a mass to protect brett kavanaugh from the witches he says that witchcraft is not a matter of free speech conjuring up personified evil does not fall under free speech satanic cults often commit crimes they murder and sexually abuse everyone in their cult we decided to talk to some of the people attending the ceremony or gathered outside the bookstore and see how they feel about cursing kavanagh do you think the ceremony tonight will actually impact brett kavanaugh no one night but it
6:12 am
will make everybody feel like they have accomplished something and you know people need to feel like they've accomplished something possibly could backfire and help brett kavanaugh people leaders yes i mean he. trump three times three now what is so tempting to be doing the little pretty well for guys but heck sometimes i'm hopeless i i don't i don't want to die it is why i'm so i be paralyzed the rest of his life so we can talk or something so you're coming out to counter the the witch ceremony it's not an act countering is sincere in the love of god so we just want to say instead of like curses we want ads you get these blessings and we want to show to love of god because we're not about hate because that's what that's about we're showing that we're actually about love i encourage everyone to also go out and register to vote magic is one thing but you know. the polls are another so will brett kavanaugh us ten year on the u.s. supreme court be impacted by tonight's ceremony or is he going to be protected by that catholic mass conducted by an exorcist or is this all just

6:20 am
sales as the only thing the saudis will listen to find it very surprising that somebody six thousand miles away can be certain about an event that happened six thousand miles away with no access to information or intelligence so this is a judgment call on the part of senator. this is not based in fact we see comments coming out of germany france and britain condemning in the strongest terms germany's once a suspend arms sales even even voices inside the u.s. president all the republican party are calling for sanctions and not buying what the saudis are selling. with the u.s. midterm elections near of her the state of texas has found itself at the political epicenter of the crucial poll examining how encouraging voters has landed the state's democratic party in hot water. never before have the u.s. midterm elections gotten so much attention and they're now just weeks away this november election is more important than any midterm in our lifetime they have to
6:21 am
know that going out for the midterms is very important it's almost like going out for the twenty twenty election that's coming up we have a chance to restore some sanity in our politics. such hype in the states is usually only reserved for presidential elections or black friday maybe but this time around we're seeing politicians grappling over every last voter and the great state of texas is no exception texas is traditionally a staunch republican state but this year the democrats are stepping up efforts to paint it blue our mission of the texas democratic party is clear fire up the base permanent infrastructure and of course when elections that means aggressive communications and smart messaging their aggressive communication includes an extensive line of mirch attack means that gifts and the occasional puppy genius until now the texas democratic party are being accused of encouraging under age and now in u.s. citizens to vote after they sent out forms with the boxes saying i'm over eighteen
6:22 am
an american pretext for voter convenience and the governor of texas is calling this a big deal this is being investigated if true there will be serious consequences but those serious consequences likely won't fall in the party but those who receive their letters democrats say every mailing had a warning explaining that voting requirements must be met aka you must be a u.s. citizen but was the last time you actually read all of the terms of agreement in fine print most would say never you just click agree and hope you didn't just sign away your firstborn so it's no wonder people got confused and friends have been ringing off the hook sense the spokesman for the texas secretary of state said in the run up to that deadline they received a pretty large volume of code somewhere non-citizens who were wondering whether them a woman they had been some change and they were now in fact able to vote and what about those who didn't bother to check in with the authorities and just decided to wing it well they could find themselves in a whole world of trouble. the texas democrat party unintentionally or otherwise is
6:23 am
offering votes registration to non citizens without some form of official intervention confused known citizens rather than the texas dems who end up paying the consequences of this not generally speaking in the election form you are required to check a box and to sign your name if you do both of these things you have committed fraud and you're prosecutable and certainly subject to expulsion from the united states not being a citizen there is a suspicion you know that many people voted legally because we have a very easy and lax voting laws in this country and we have so many non-citizens living here people who are otherwise you know which will to vote. we believe many of these people do vote because they have a deep seated interest for years the republican party has required or would like to see a requirement of people signing applying a signature or having some some kind of i.d. to prove who they are so that it marries against registration every country in the
6:24 am
world does this and the democrats fight it tooth and nail because. they feel that this sort of activity will drive down with their vote thousands of mostly honduran migrants have resumed their journey through mexico they are hoping to reach the u.s. border despite vocal opposition from donald trump the president threatened to halt aid to honduras and guatemala and close the u.s. border with mexico if the march is not stopped the refugees arrived on mexico's southern border on friday they say they're fleeing poverty and violence in their central american countries mexican authorities a large dozens of women and children to enter the harbor many migrants cross the border. cabins here in just over half an hour's time with all the stories making headlines this monday in the meantime we're going underground once more.
