but aren't being hard to live learn so many. social media giant twitter says it will ban all ants from state controlled media but it's relying on government funded think tanks to determine that just falls under that definition. of reporting confirmed previous claims that america is a boil and gas industry persuaded the government to criminalize protests against pipelines. and it takes years to the day since a major chemical attack in fear is excluded we look at what progress has been made by the national investigation into that case and others across syria.
10:01 am
a very warm welcome to the program from all of us here at our th q. in moscow thanks for joining us this hour. social media platform twitter has announced it will no longer accept ads placed by government controlled media oh a quarter has been looking at who exactly will be affected twitter users fear not the admins are taking new steps to protect you from the big bad state controlled media no longer will you be exposed to their alternative information via advertisements it's all for the best. we want to protect healthy discourse and open conversation to that and we believe that there is a difference for dating gauging and called the sation with accounts you choose to follow on the content you see from advertisers in your tweets experience which maybe from accounts you're not currently following by by b.b.c. and voice of america right well they might actually be what the social media giant is calling taxpayer funded and titties it's different and twitter has put together
10:02 am
a diverse team of western media organizations to draw the line between good and bad that's right freedom house the apparently independent and u.s. state funded ngo that helped the cia with a 980 s. propaganda campaign twitter picked the right state funded organization for the job of censoring state funded organizations so why is twitter suddenly pumping media doesn't like management didn't say but the mainstream media was able to connect a few dots when it comes to burning issues like the protests in hong kong there's only room for one perspective. state owned public funded independent what's the difference if at the end of the day you're only getting one take on controversial events it's a bad idea for twitter to put any restrictions on on any media companies and on any
10:03 am
of their advertising i i support freedom of speech any restrictions that companies like twitter or facebook start putting on media organizations it prevents as much dialogue that could happen and it leads to other other rules that could be worse for other organizations as well and it's not always a very clear distinction on what is state controlled versus not state controlled and there are loopholes that will allow organizations like m.p.r. m.p.'s in the united states or the b.b.c. in britain to continue to to advertise and publish on twitter. meanwhile another social media giant is also trying to win back the trust of its users as facebook's launched a new tool letting you see what sites and apps have been telling the social media platform about you it's called off facebook activity you'll be able to find out which 3rd parties are sharing your data with the site and what kind of data for
10:04 am
example what you've done online wall away from facebook like logon somewhere or sign up for something and if you don't like what you see you can tell facebook to decouple your data from your profile though that's not quite the end of the story if you facebook each of its you will be disconnected within 48 hours from when it's received during this time it may be useful measurement purposes and to make improvements to system social media expert here cohen things that facebook will still collect users private data just without sharing it with 3rd parties. the control isn't going to be a complete control so you tell facebook look i don't really want you to show the state. body websites. stolpe sharing your data but facebook will do is facebook will make you a name in personel details from the data which will continue extracting the data
10:05 am
and showing the data the only problem is that facebook is making is that your name be linked to duct data but continue collecting the data he's. been doing for a very very long time they're reminded it is impossible in a moment to delete your facebook account your data still retains by facebook and at any time facebook might. decide to reactivate your account to build a historical data that. leaks audio has revealed that a us oil and gas lobby group helped secure legislation that criminalize protests against pipelines that was in response to demonstrations against the construction of a pipeline in north dakota during which activists chained themselves to equipment protesters also started fires when the authorities tried to remove them from the site with more on the story. you want to have big influence in washington d.c.
10:06 am
and we need to have a big lobby and that means you need to have big money the american fuel and petrochemical manufacturers the f.p.m. represents all the big names in the energy markets koch industries chevron exxon mobil valero energy to name a few now the pm has been around since 1902 making sure that the voice of the ultra wealthy oil monopolists are not left out of the political process and it seems like their latest target has been protesters now the past has crash. did legislation in 22 different states already passed in 9 states that would severely restrict the activities of political activists who might get in the way of oil pipelines and other profitable infrastructure in an audio recording obtained by the intercept the group's senior vice president discusses the strategy that they're using to criminalize protests. throughout the world. particularly with.
10:07 am
the left. now the language of the riot boosting act is a little bit vague it could be a stretch to outlaw even thinking about protesting big oil companies. now this is the only law that's been pushed by the a.f.p. i am $28.00 teen a $30000000.00 lobbying effort killed a carbon tax in washington state bigger cars means more gasoline and more gasoline means more profits for the oil companies the money and influence of big oil certainly outweigh the efforts of grassroots environmentalist everybody knows that
10:08 am
in the united states of america if you want something you have got to pay for it and the oil industry certainly has all the means necessary. but r.t. new york. washington sanctions on buying iranian oil block more than 2500000 barrels from the global market every day and the estimate given by u.s. secretary of state my pump a 0 at the white house special representative for you ron has apparently trying to downplay the sanctions impact suggesting that most of the economic woes of the islamic republic are of its own making. iran is in a recession. inflation is creeping up near 50 percent. this is largely caused by iran's corruption. iran's marxist economy the traps people in poverty and a government that prioritizes ideology over the welfare of its own people. but it is also the case that our sanctions have driven up the cost on the regime. now in
10:09 am
theory of the sanctions don't target medicine and practice though into a sweeping ban on financial transactions with iranians they can't buy medical supplies from abroad with a dramatic fall in imports they increasingly face key shortages last year the international court of justice ordered the us term move any impediments to the export of humanitarian goods including medicine to iran the trumpet ministration though insists medicine is not being targeted. with number one the united states sanctions medical supplies going to the iranian people the truth is that the united states exempts badasses and medical devices for the iranian people the iranian people know all too well that the real issue preventing access is the regime itself doesn't have a shot and my husband is a cancer patient and we are worried about his medication and their costs medications used to be available before but after the sanctions they have become more expensive andrea and we are worried about the future and what will happen.
10:10 am
and i need to know this is the 2nd round of my chemotherapy off to sanctions before my chemotherapy used to cost $211.00 euro but now with each round i need to pay 422 euros drugs cannot be found easily like the 4 we have to search them in different pharmacies with every single one of them having a specific kind of drug. known when they impose sanctions on the banks the money cannot be transferred easily to a foreign country you know to buy medication.
10:11 am
or to bring in many voices and some of them like components it's obvious that without these parts the devices simply won't work the university of tehran professor said mohammad marandi believes washington just doesn't want to shoulder the responsibility for the impact of it think sions while the united states under shop is trying to be brute trying to brutalize ordinary iranians and chill as many iranians as possible that they want to have their cake and eat it too on the one hand they want to say that iran we are powerful and we're destroying the iranian economy and on the other hand they want to say well iran is evil and incompetent and it's their own fault but the truth of the matter is that they have caused great difficulty in iran this sanctions regime or this maximum pressure campaign is directly targeting ordinary iranians you cannot import medicine through the banking system in iran you cannot import anything through the international banking system and this of course is a violation of human rights so america obviously being dishonest still to come
10:12 am
after almost a month of complaints the b.b.c. admits to a mistake and its breck's of coverage in the recent elections a story and more after the break. you know world's big partners. and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks.
10:13 am
so we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy for indication let it be an arms race in his own spirit dramatic development only really going to exist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. welcome back to the program this 6 years to the day since a major chemical attack on the syrian capital's suburb of eastern gooda back in 2013 the rebel stronghold in damascus was targeted with rockets containing sarin gas this prompted international outrage with many pointing the finger at the syrian
10:14 am
government. the syrian government has utilized chemical weapons in its fight against rebels the syrian sarin gas attack which art ministration says the syrian government launched the assad regime has used chemical weapons including the nerve agent sarin syrian troops now have the deadly nerve agent sarin gas weaponized and at the ready syrian president bashar al assad responded to the allegations calling them part of the fake narrative of the west the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons launched a fact finding mission to investigate that incident and others and its wake up reports on what progress has been made. the syrian war theater has become the seeing for some of the scariest chemical attacks of the 21st century in many acts of this tragedy it is still not known to this very day who launched noxious project
10:15 am
tiles that have killed hundreds if not thousands of people for years the so-called fact finding mission and initiative over u.n. backed chemical watchdog has been tasked with dotting the ice the establishment of a fact finding mission was based on the general authority of the o.p.c. w. director general seek to uphold at all times the object and purpose of the chemical weapons convention. in a report on a series of chemical incidents in lebanon 2015 the mission showed a drawing of an alleged munition used in one of the attacks what they didn't mention though was that using such a device as a bomb didn't make sense it was loaded not with chlorine but rather the chemicals that needed to be mixed together to become toxic according to the u.n. to facilitate this would be a tall order the a c f c hydrochloride fluorocarbon gas canisters commonly referred to as refrigerant canisters are widely available because they used to refill
10:16 am
refrigerators and air conditioners however they are disposable and they repurchasing all refilling would require technical modification of the valve technical expertise and equipment would be needed to modify the valve to refill the canisters with liquids or compressed gas the report gave no clear indications as to how this has been assess. and any nation that looked to see it was a holes of the virus claim put forward and yet am report is that these were. filled with something else ok these canisters that there was no device shown these cancers would rule out on to being. refill are not accountable so this is a big question mark and yes taken something constructive to devise which allegedly can be ineffective where the pattern continues in other
10:17 am
reports by the fact finding mission to. a toxic attack and hunchy whom seem to reinforce bashar assad's reputation of a tyrant gassing his own people even though damascus denied any involvement the fact finding mission provided an extensive analysis of the incident but somewhat overlooked the fact that the closest the government planes got to hunchy who in their day was 5 kilometers the map indicated that the closest to hand shake that the aircraft had flown had been approximately 5 kilometers away additional information provided by the mechanism referred to 2 aircraft that had taken off from the shea rad air base at around the time indicated as above 10 minutes apart following the same flight path this effectively rules out the possibility of an air strike throwing a dark shadow of doubt on the version suggesting the government's involvement.
10:18 am
another thing left out about this incident is the fact that some of the alleged victims had been admitted to hospitals before the attack some were chipped in as patients in a hospital more than a 100 kilometers away just 30 minutes after the incident the mission didn't seem to present any facts explaining how the ambulance could have covered this distance in under 30 minutes because to do so it would have had to go at a speed of more than 200 kilometers per hour to reach the facility wanted to keep problems that being in the station of many of the alleged attacks there's been a reliance on. n.g.o.s relied on was asian which are not independent question is raised how much international organizations un n.w. been subjected to external pressure in order to generate that you look why don't
10:19 am
you put who goals the war in syria almost normalize the use of chemicals in warfare but it seems that the very mission there was a stablished to find out the facts as to who bears most of the blame has been just a bit selective as to which facts to look for. we've asked the o.p.c. w. to comment on why some evidence appears to have been ignored so far they have not responded . to the u.k.'s public broadcaster the b.b.c. is making headlines of its own and after it emitted 2 failings in its breadth of coverage during the recent european elections despite its own strict anatole guidelines but as saskia taylor explains it took a lot for the corporation to acknowledge its air. the b.b.c. has just admitted that one of its graphics illustrating the results of the european parliamentary election back in may this year it was misleading now the chart in
10:20 am
question shows how well pro and anti bracks at parties did and it suggests that remain as one a little over 40 percent of the vote with bracks it is coming in just shy of 35 percent the conclusion of course being that anti bracks sentiment in europe was stronger but and this is where the issue is the core fails to account for one important thing while the need for the party and ukip are represented as backing bracks it the conservatives are not despite being a party that was then and still is committed to leaving the european bloc. coconspirator has pursued the shoe for months and despite being rebuffed by the b.b.c. yesterday finally had his complaint accepted it was except a doctor threatening to take them out to ofcom the charge he used by the b.b.c. to present the election results attempted to do a brutally imply and to brag suit parties receive the most routes now conservative
10:21 am
support of brecht's it is by no means whole hearted but publicly it's now pursuing united pro breck's it policy to reason may of course was adamant on this everyone now knows how famous mantra that means brett said and this is only hardened boris johnson who's vowed to take the u.k. out of the e.u. by the october deal or no deal so this was a significant omission on the part of the b.b.c. indeed if that had correctly included the conservative party the progress it is would have taken the lead in that graphic by 3 percent potentially changing the implications of that election another aspect of the story was mentioning is that the b.b.c. actually rebuffed the complaint for almost one month while we. your concerns given the preceding paragraph we don't believe readers would have been misled on what the graph was showing now as i said the b.b.c. has since admitted that these graphics were
10:22 am
a lapse in editorial standards they've been removed on a note of correction added to the website but there is a little back story to this because this isn't the only complaint directed against the b.b.c. on this very issue actually jury the elections back in may the ball costa faced allegations of bias from view as backlash after a radio program on bret's that interview $24.00 people 18 of whom were pro practice at so allegations of antibiotics that brought bias aunt knew we all know of course at brett's that has become one of the most divisive issues of british politics in modern history so it's probably on surprising that people are disappointed that the b.b.c. has failed to live up to its commitment to impartiality on the issue. a prominent defender of media freedoms has found herself accused of restricting them and after the bodyguard of cnn's april ryan forcibly prevented another journalist from filming her speech.
10:23 am
but. it is a sad day. when. a u.s. president does not stand by the constitution the 1st amendment freedom of the press there's been efforts to silence me in the briefing room they have been efforts to discredit me you now have security. and you say the white house should pay for it i'm here because they started they started up. a security guard assaulted me in a hotel lobby after stealing our camera. whatever they want i thought i was i think i did it all cheer put that down i.
10:24 am
missed ryan's remarks well then interrupted by a visit from the mystery man who i later learned is named joe morris and works as a security guard for miss ryan mr morris proceeded to unplug my camera grab the tripod it was connected to and steal the entire thing. so i didn't feel like she. was i was. trying to get away from the perpetrator but within seconds he began assaulting me without provocation. and continued his assault as he forced me out of the building. i. know this is the same a pariah in this is wrong. encourages violence at his rallies people get thrown out
10:25 am
and that's just part of it is like a blood sport and then he or she is having something that is much worse happen at one of our own events seems pretty you know hypocritical to say the least well they want to protect themselves 1st and foremost a cname so they don't want to have any kind of negative coverage about their journalists and their pundits on air they won't talk about a pariah and have a new bodyguard basically beat somebody up almost say her particular event they won't talk about that because about protecting their and their name and their image but i talk about shot all day long even if it was illegitimate excuse to throw a person now even if they were trying to fight other people will talk about they paint chump and his supporters as violent as negative hateful and there's races but on their end of it they just perfect dangers they can do no wrong that's a wrap up of the day's top news for now but don't forget you can always find us on many of your favorite social media platforms like twitter and facebook for up to the minute reports.
10:26 am
what holds his hands to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and you. want to. have to go on to be press which is what will befall 3 of them or can't be good. i'm interested always in the water as in the. question. going back to medieval days you had the church which is like a monetarist present day 21st century where they would discuss how many angels can dance on the head of a pin they were in power and they enclosed this little model and now we've got neo feudalism or you guys central bankers discussing how many derivatives can be stuffed into a worthless pension fund and we've got folks in san francisco in newark new jersey
10:27 am
dying for medieval diseases. why a paradise with some all year round turned into a round the experimentation field but agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up and suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments but often in day you have many of these people one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with that it's because the people have less political power.
10:28 am
hello and welcome to cross talk we're all things considered i'm peter lavelle the legal saga of geoffrey epstein has become a spectacle that is lucrative clip bait for the media and of course the lurid accusations against epstein are being used to entrap his social circle through guilt by association but what about justice this is on trial to. cross talking predatory elites i'm joined by my guest brian joyce in chattanooga he is host of the brian joyce show in west palm beach we have dr jean allowed in she
10:29 am
is a psychology expert as well as a trump 2020 media advisory board member and in athens we cross to alex krista for oh he is the director and writer for the duran dot com all right jeff gentlemen and lady jump in anytime you want that's the whole point of the program alex let me go to you i'm going to ask probably the broadest possible question you can about this whole saga what is this story about and why now alex. i don't think i can answer that question peter because we're still finding out so busy much but i will tell you that this story is about a mysterious man that we really don't know nothing about and that is jeffrey epstein i mean we're just now starting to learn who this guy was and one thing is very clear peter he is not a billionaire and manager i think that's becoming obvious now what we have and what we know is that we have this guy who was. 20212223 years old he was
10:30 am
a math and physics teacher at the dalton high school in new york from then not he went to bear stearns and then from bear stearns we have a complete blank we have this guy who was at bear stearns and left under suspicious circumstances and then all of a sudden became this billionaire with this incredible social circle and black book rolodex of the who's who in new york city in hollywood and in d.c. and now we have to learn who this guy is if we understand the man we're going to understand the crime ok i wonder if we're ever going to learn who the man is here because he's already gone on trial for a similar allegations and got off and that is a mystery in itself and that is unfortunately for president trump close to him in his administration gina i mean in watching the media coverage of it all i mean there is an enormous amount of spin going on.
