4:02 am
elections approaching things are getting intense across the united states bombs are being sent through the mail shootings are happening and talk of division is everywhere now in this context you would expect that american media would try to calm people down bring them together well not this time just turn on c.n.n. this president has radicalized so many more people than isis ever did the commentator has sense apologized but trump wouldn't be trump if he didn't fire back there was a woman who was just on c.n.n. a short while ago saying that you have radicalized more people than isis that was c.n.n. tonight well let this be some kind of a sick woman that's media and politicians but entertainment is where americans go to relax maybe have a few good laughs but now a lot of comedians have found a new soapbox to stand on even a show that's about nerds with poor social skills is starting to put up anti trust messages. if you knew of

4:05 am
the media now are consuming our nudes and you see we talk about living in the bubble we are in the media we believe that everyone sees things the way we do or that they care about things that we do it's for them sounds you think america cares do you think somebody is going to say you know what i was going to vote for whatever but doggone it i watched the big bang theory and i watched this one flash and i changed my mind come on it's vanity license plate. staying stateside it looks like the republican party has lost perhaps its most high profile celebrity supporter in a twitter rant the rapper kanye west said he's being used after being linked to a campaign to convince african-americans to ditch support for the rival democratic party conservative come this owens who was behind the campaign earlier praise the collaboration with west i'm blessed to say that this logo
4:06 am
these colors were created by my dear friend and fellow super hero kanye west was the word in one tweet west said his eyes were no wind open he's distancing himself from politics it comes just a few weeks after west had a much publicized meeting with donald trump in the oval office in which he preys on the president but he claims he's been used to spread messages he ses he doesn't believe in. well hillary clinton is also facing a backlash after joking that african-americans all look alike many suggested if it had been donald trump uttering the same line the outrage would have been greater she was correcting an interviewer who mixed up two democrat politicians you think of cory booker's and you can comment to him in your kill file i don't know anything
4:07 am
about him saying kick them in the shins essentially start to get to that kind of political i was eric holder eric holder sorry i know they all look alike no they don't i. made the joke. i was trying to. president i want to go to david to. produce a david duke hillary clinton made the joke. some people think all the chinese thinks the same i mean that is pretty offensive yet one has a mustache one doesn't can't be that. six it's pretty insensitive. especially when they don't look alike at all. i still terrorists gain territory in syria close to the border with iraq killing over forty u.s. box fighters during an offensive there washington had previously claimed almost completely decimated. explains. from all the boasting you may have gotten the idea that muslim mixtape in syria is so two thousand and sixteen the
4:08 am
coalition to defeat isis has liberated very close to one hundred percent of the territory we've done a good job with those as we have just absolutely decimated but the latest carnage is a clear signal that the terrorists are not ready to buckle just yet they've squeezed every drop of profit from the victory they've been craving for so long from obvious territorial gains to a massive p.r. push they filmed their operation and spoils of war from all thinkable angles it seems even with reinforcements america's proxy ground force the kurds couldn't hold off the surprise onslaught hard choice in casualties down both sides but we will continue to go after them in the weeks ahead i saw the latest propaganda video even includes a not so subtle threat a skyline view of the government controlled town but hold on just how much of
4:09 am
a surprise was this latest isola tag really short they moved in under the cover of a sandstorm but it's not like the kurds which are in charge of eastern syria didn't know i still was on their porch they have been fighting terrorists in the area for a whole year but despite their best efforts to little success and that could be due to the fact that their effort has been dwindling gradually apart from i saw the kurdish fighters have been focusing on skirmishes with the syrian army and repelling the turkish operation against them in the north this plays into the yard as sounds perfectly since assad's forces are not going anywhere and neither is turkey as president erdogan te's the next phase of what he calls an anti terror operation in syria but don't use them as you know we have started active intervention operations against the terror organization in the last couple of days we will. soon come down hard on the terror organization with more extensive and
4:10 am
effective operations the united states also has been convincing the world it's hell bent on cleansing syria of terrorists yet he has own it's their area of responsibility where i still strikes well with its bloodiest attack in months and i wonder could it be because american troops are in fact miles away from all the action we don't have a contour a new mission here we have a defeat isis mission that competition between all these forces allows for isis to play back and forth every surrounding neighbor of syria including the syrian government have had other enemies to fight in other concerns isis is always calm number two it's a difficult problem it's also a divided syria because you have a border region where you rocks on one side the syrian the democratic forces on the other backed by the united states and a syrian army backed by russia and iran are on the other there are many players in
4:11 am
the syrian conflict and all of them are hungry for geopolitical bounty in syria and writing off early means risking another wave of terrorist resurgence. i want to stay in syria a little bit longer because elsewhere in the country tensions are wrapped it just druze are a protest of a local election in the golan heights a disputed territory between syria and israel dozens of locals the nuns to vote as a legal. really. i.d.f. soldiers used tear gas to break up demonstrations when crowds tried to block the entrances to polling stations in several villages many people living in these really occupied area have refused to take office release of this and ship consider themselves syrian it's the first local election since israel took control of the

4:13 am
however neither concern for yemeni citizens nor the murder of a saudi journalist working for the washington post are enough to stop the united states from dealing on its lucrative weapons contracts with saudi arabia political science professor colin campbell so yes the u.s. has no interest in sanctioning the saudis or ending yemen's war something has triggered this and the only thing possible is that it has to do with. this is more of a message to saudi arabia that what the u.s. is going to do is this. it's all other was the u.s.
4:14 am
they have to. i would doubt that they're going in this conflict because if they really want to be in this they can just kind of sending weaponry to saudi arabia well as. so i mean it's one of you and. an independent movement on the. what they're trying to do. and then. the war in a different way. with. guidance. the british government is also under scrutiny for its role in arming the saudis it is the second largest supplier of arms to riyadh the u.k.'s middle east minister was grilled contentious parliamentary committee hearing on tuesday do you have a problem with condemning an international violations of international
