4:02 am
happening in riga and they said that latvia's crackdown on russian speaking journalists under the pretext of the violation of a huge sanctions is absolutely unacceptable the foreign ministry also said that the e.u. restrictions are of a personal nature against mr get off and they can multiply just about everyone who cooperates with the news outlets that are under his management and they also said russian they consider their aggressive actions of the security service a blatant example of violating the foundations for a democratic society which is freedom of media and expression now that's what else russian foreign ministry said it is a completely punitive action which leaves no doubt about the roof or big subtext of the fabricated accusations. now the accused journalists and their colleagues are certainly. outraged and mind you this is

us president elect joe biden's invited donald trump to his inauguration claiming it would give a positive sign that the post-election chaos is ending but it's unclear whether the millions who still think victory was stolen from trump think this means well hail the divisions. now. trump supporters are still coming out chanting stop the steel and fighting multiple irregularities have to fight officials in swing state jewel just saying a 2nd recount should confirm find him as the winner ati's donald quarter looks at how the reputation of u.s. elections as a whole may be starting to get a little time and i just. was only about a month left until the big transition of power in the white house and yet it looks like the battle for the presidency is not yet over this may be the most important speech i've ever made i want to provide an update on our own growing efforts to
4:07 am
expose the tremendous voter fraud and irregularities which took place during the ridiculous lee long nov 3rd elections if we are right about the fraud. joe biden can't be president trump is sticking to his guns still insisting he was cheated out of the election and calling on the supreme court to overturn the results his lawyers though have yet to prove their case and the justice department says the current administration is full of baloney so what is it that the trumpet ministration is making such a fuss about while in new york one u.s.p.s. driver claimed a trailer with thousands of ballots disappeared into thin air i knew it with return addresses filled out thousands of them while in wisconsin an x. postal worker even claimed his coworkers were ordered to backdate the ballots u.s.p.s. employees were ordered to backdate ballots that were received too late to be lawfully counted ballots in liveries in the middle of the night people filling in
4:08 am
the blank ballots for by misplacing duplicate souther wisconsin poll workers claim similar violations as well as the widely shared testimony from this michigan election contractor who claimed she blew the lid off some dodgy dealings in detroit there was. actually the ballots being ran through that had delayed in machines numerous times being counted 8 to 10 times her testimony has already been put through the wringer of public opinion and the justice department's also made up its mind about these claims we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election. the thing is though the d.o.j. won't say why what does raise the eyebrows of conservative officials all we're asking for is own where there is evidence of improper impropriety that you examine and we want the transparency we want to understand is investigation going on. what kind of investigation what are you looking for for years americans have been told
4:09 am
evil russian meddling is undermining democracy and now that biden seems to have won the election there's not so much as a whisper on that front that the russians really just decide to sit out this very important election or perhaps the very system itself is at fault here it's clear that these elections are corrupt through and through but not for the reasons that donald trump highlights the corrupt through and through because there's an electoral college that does not recognize the popular vote there's already a complete lack of trust people do not respect the electoral college most americans can't even explain the electoral college or provide any type of justification or logic for which there is none many americans don't even participate in presidential elections because they understand that it's. a choice between 2 oppresses for the next 4 years between tweedle dee tweedle dum trump is just expose the system from the right in created these decisions that have long existed.
4:10 am
briefed on c.n.n. by i think donald trump fast want a u.s. conservative groups calling leaked tapes of the news networks conference calls and one clip released by project a very task c.n.n. special correspondent describing how she's been advised by lawmakers to avoid giving trump too much at a time. i just keep hearing the same thing both from republicans who have not been there to congratulate biden but but also to to to happen the democrats and that is there needs to be you know news organizations have to be very careful in the response of all of that out not keeping track of too much of a platform. here and conceding. trolls useful to go forward the correspondent herself hasn't commented on the released tapes yet
4:11 am
however the network's communications team has tweeted that project maritimers may have broken the law by snooping on its stuff and have referred the case to lauren for cement the communications manager for project very task gave my colleagues last year taylor his views on the tapes and whether he fears legal action. you hear the outgoing president of c.n.n. jeff zucker dictating to his hosts reporters editors and producers what the news will be not based on whether it is true not based on whether it's important but whether or not it fits jeff zucker's world view and personal political agenda there's no diversity of opinion nobody objects nobody challenges c.n.n. did react very quickly on twitter that said it is going to get your enforcement involved my question is are you ready and t. think the door is on your side i don't believe for
4:12 am
a minute that the police are to come knocking on our door everything the project veritas does is legal we have a very well trained and very well paid legal staff and i'm highly confident that everything we did was within the legal guard rails no one no one has called us from from law enforcement that's just something they said that tweet came from cnn's p.r. staff and i think you can call that a p.r. stunt and i want to ask you one of the tables what totten and your private discussions without his work space would you support it as while the one. who who is objecting c.n.n. i mean they ran secretly recorded tapes of 1st lady malani a trump just weeks ago they were in the access hollywood tapes they ran tapes secretly recorded of mitt romney when he was the 2012 republican candidate for president the idea that c.n.n.
4:13 am
is suddenly upset. about somebody were chris secretly recording a meeting or a conference call and put and putting out to the public that's absolutely absurd. and he can also appear to show c.n.n. chief jeff zucker ordering employees not to normalize trunks claims on the election legal and media. analyst lionel told us he believes the news outlets which shout the most about their impartiality usually show the least. so the question is what role did o'keefe play because if he if he just got the number himself if somebody let's just gave it to him and he dialed in himself never being a part of us i think you may have legal problems but this is weird because now we have zoom calls and now we have new areas of conversation and conference it's not a one on one conversation and don't forget lionel's law the law always lags behind technology if we had done the same thing let's say 2. stocks or an actor or a
4:14 am
n or something i'll bet you we would maybe hear something maybe not as blatant as that but certainly a journalistic bias and there are other people who say this is the brand the idea of you tuning in to c.n.n. you want to hear a liberal anti trump stuff i'm sorry but that's a fact so be true to the bank brand to the shareholders they have to produce but here's the thing which is amazing when you look at people who go out of their way to see we are the news we are unbiased fair and balanced is this in essence a form of trademark law is this perjury to say enjoy any kind of liability for misleading the consumer if i tell you something is 100 calories but it's 200 you've got to believe i may get a lawsuit well from lying about the content why shouldn't it apply otherwise watch this being addressed in the courts coming up. the family of palestinian brothers severely injured by any israeli raid on their home state it's wow now describes it
4:15 am
as a mistake many more stories including this one coming up after the break. join me every thursday on the alex i'm unsure when i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. seemed wrong. to shape out these days. and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
4:16 am
continuity for change this is what's being asked when considering a potential. trip made a point to undo obama's legacy when he did the same. or is this all only continuity drives for. not keeping in the. welcome back to part those houses stained horrific injuries off the israeli soldiers apparently detonated an explosive device at their refugee camp poem one of the men who's still in hospital shot his story with us but. at the so the army came at around 6 am while me and my family were asleep the soldiers placed an explosive device at the door and blew it up i woke up from the pain in my legs and found out
4:17 am
that my brother was injured as well that's what i remember i was injured and then arrested while i was on the stretcher i was in a coma for 18 days i had surgery 9 times they even wanted to amputate my leg. a month and a half later my father visited me and i didn't recognize him at 1st and then i slowly started to improve but it's now been 3 months mohammad's brother has been detained without trial according to his family the father described to us the shock of seeing his injured sons and questions why it happened. where the bird came downstairs and from both my sons droning in their blood their legs shredded with pieces of flesh on the wounds in the soldiers' swarmed in i couldn't handle seeing my children it is brutal and inhuman why did they have to use this huge explosive device even though neighbors from 2 kilometers away heard the explosion i was
4:18 am
allowed to visit my sons in the hospital a week later they were in a serious condition and then they arrested one of them without charge or trial he was sent to prison when i visited him he was walking on crutches he had platinum in his legs replacing the bones because he shouted. israel says it was carrying out an anti terror raid seizing armed military operatives weapons and ammunition a statement describes the brothers as activists adding our commander will be held in administrative detention until march tucked away even back when israel defense forces reserve officers says he has little sympathy for them. i can tell you and testify form the field that the army do not wake up in the morning look for what looking for what to break into they have intelligence they do they do beautifully went to that house precisely and you know that a policy can deliberately hide beyond metal doors or human shields like women and
4:19 am
children how common is it for any innocent palestinians to be injured by israel i didn't make any research about how common but i can tell you for sure that it's very common to any jihad islamic activist to hurt innocent people in israel and the job of these early army is not to count innocent palestinian terrorists is only to take care of our citizens and prevent any attempt to kill them deliberately to kill innocent citizens in this world this is the mission of i.d.f. we're not looking to hurt innocent people we're not waking up in the morning and say oh it's a long time we haven't been in geneva it's time to break it go in janine it's in delhi germans police cites intelligence we win the people italy to find this special they're always we to break to bring them into prison that corporate did and
4:20 am
we proceed to do so one of the brothers says the army i acknowledge the raid was a mistake that cost and $1.00 sciences as to why uk months in jail. well it's a model for the treat everybody seen innocent through and so we went to court because of the way the soldiers burst in as for ahmed they said his case is classified and accused him of being a member of the islamic jihad movement even though there was nothing against him. he got 6 months in prison and. he is really army told me that i was injured by mistake a mistake made by one of the soldiers who thought there was someone inside the house so they decided to burst into the house in a brutal way which none of us expected after we were injured the soldiers started arguing with each other about why it happened but when i reached hospital they paid for everything and when the lawyer arrived he also said that the army had knowledge
4:21 am
is that it's there for. me and my brother were both hit because of a mistake but he was arrested because he'd been arrested before. 234 businesses have called time in some us states in one of the most disturbing affects of the pandemic but america's mega billionaires are making unprecedented cash as the rest of the country suffers at unheard of levels artie's care more pain takes a look. american politicians love to sing the praises of small businesses however with a pandemic going on we've got small businesses disappearing very fast at this point one 3rd of small businesses in both new york and new jersey have gone under with more expected to disappear soon it's really bad and without federal dollars coming into new jersey the monsters tool is not the establishment going to make it through the winter while small businesses are falling on hard times other folks have been raking in the benjamin's.
4:22 am
things are going great for amazon with people stuck at home and shopping online the corporate giant has been on a hiring been with 427300 new employees in just 10 months it appears they're not afraid to kick the little guys even when they're down many small companies have
4:23 am
told us during this year long investigation that they were mistreated abused and tossed amazon the. shoes that amazon is only interested in exploiting its monopoly power over the e-commerce marketplace now on the surface of it looks like this is just simply a pandemic it's a case of bigger boat staying afloat during a storm however if you look a little bit deeper it seems like things have been rigged. a radical lefty if you'd like but i refuse to accept a system that enables jeff bezos to grow his wealth by $66000000000.00 in 5 months during a pandemic the slip full $2000000.00 americans on the brink of eviction american politicians have been talking about imposing restrictions and regulations and raising taxes on the rich however it all seems to just be talk those rich corporations are getting richer while the american middle class is dying off small businesses have to be competitive they don't have the money to buy the politicians
4:24 am
they don't have the money to get the laws written for them think of it this way we have to capitalism we have one capitalism for the big companies the jews heard about tesla or much or amazon or easels those you've heard about and then we have another capitalism much more competitive much more relying on each businessman are all going to try to find a way to arise as a completely different system has different rules as different limits to itself and we live in a system in which the whole exist but with much bitterness between it and the irony is very dangerous for the united states of america is that in a sector this is why eaten too deep in the inequality of the rich have gotten much much richer and the millions of people have gotten to the united states often
4:25 am
likes to hail the achievements of the free market and free competition however it seems like when certain people rise to the top they often like to change the rules in order to make sure they stay there caleb r.t. new york. and though to come of success stance how u.s. general has assessed american achievements after 19 years in afghanistan. we believe that now after 20 years 2 decades of consistent effort there we have achieved a modicum of success i would also argue that over the last 5 to 7 years as a minimum we have been in a condition of strategic stalemate well and success appears to be replacing progress as the buzzword for the war torn country making progress right now in array of areas that are critical to our combined success with afghanistan the progress is real and importantly that progress is sustainable make no mistake the progress there i think is very rose myself and mistake and it's very substantial
4:26 am
2016 has been a significant year for afghanistan and progress has been made we are making progress towards our common goal that is to ensure that we and our allies never again face terrorist attacks from afghanistan. comes out of the taliban and afghan government signaled a breakthrough in talks with agreements on a negotiation mechanism the country's struggling amid leaks revelations from the us government of mismanagement and corruption by successive white house administrations in afghanistan top u.s. officials privately admitted the war was unwinnable but headed to any such suggestion from the public schooled worse a former marine corps intelligence officers say is that i haven't made any american achievements in afghanistan asshole. you know some issues are so dire that they they they can't be resolved you know amicably between the warring parties
4:27 am
and the reality is we've accomplished nothing in afghanistan except to destroy the country further to thousands of american dead and tens of thousands of afghanis dead the only future for afghanistan will be if one power can take control there will be no negotiated settlement between the taliban and the afghan government these are incompatible they jps of afghanistan eventually once will when the only way the afghan government can win is if the united states who is down or is in hundreds of thousands of troops and seeks to rebuild a nation there just simply isn't stomach for that in america nor in the world america will have to withdraw and the taliban are going to win that is the ultimate outcome we can tear is a drag is out as long as we want joe biden will be loathe to admit defeat and be the president the last afghanistan so we could see american troops in afghanistan for another 4 years and then the president after that will have to make
4:28 am
a decision do they want to go for another 4 years or do they want to withdraw but eventually american troops will have to leave act aniston. as chasing off the international we're back in 30 minutes with the latest headlines we'll see here that. was sunday make no certainly no borders i'm just glad to nationalities. as a march we don't have a turkey we don't actually world peace to be. judged as commentary crisis like this this time to time so we can do better we should. everyone is contributing her own way but we also know that this crisis will not go
4:29 am

4:30 am
