11:06 pm
i'm august dawn of reporting from the dawn, bash archie. and now to further worry news from the upper roget where kiev continues to increase fear of a nuclear disaster. a radioactive fuel storage building at the plant has been pierced by ukrainian shelling. that's according to local russian back officials. these pictures released of the aftermath of the shelling show a damage roof at the facility. russian officials said they have warned ukraine multiple times to stop shelling the plant. europe's largest, which supplies hundreds of thousands of people with electricity care has accused moscow of using the facility to houses. military we spoke to the russian backed mayor of enter goldar, the ukrainian town, which is located close to the nuclear power plant. he says, authorities are ready to provide evidence of cab shelling of the facility to international observers. although no one knew, sure that the moment radiation levels are normal, the shilling only pierced the roof of the building. so they wanted to carry out
11:07 pm
a terrorist act that would lead to the spread of radiation around here and further towards europe. this is being done in order to prevent the international atomic energy agency from entering the plant. we have a lot of evidence to show the international atomic energy agency, in particular, how the ukranian army has showed the nuclear facility and the nearby city of enter go to are you be slow. all these attacks are documented in all of this will certainly be presented to the international atomic energy agency mission, which is coming here. this is what ukrainian politicians and their military are afraid, because they are terrorizing not only russia, but also their own citizens who live here. the international atomic energy agency says it will send a delegation to the power plant this week to inspect the situation. the team includes the head of the global nuclear watchdog, and experts from 13 countries, some of whom may remain at the facility on a permanent basis. however, kiev says it wants the i 8 to come to a single conclusion that moscow is responsible for the damage to the plant. the day
11:08 pm
has come, the international atomic energy agency support and assistance mission to zap roacha is now on its way. we must protect the safety and security of ukraine's in europe's biggest nuclear facility, proud to lead this mission, which will be at the power plant later this week. we expect a clear statement from the international atomic energy agency mission about the violations of all nuclear safety protocols. we know that russia endangers not only ukraine, but the whole world, exposing it to the risk of a nuclear catastrophe. this comes as western media blame russia, despite top u. s. officials being unable to give a clear answer as to who's to blame for the damage to the plant. first, who was shelling the station. i'm not able at this point to make any confirmation about the shelling and where it's coming from. the u. s. department of defense has not ruled out that ukrainian forces are firing near the territory according to media reports. that's a mid one sided, western media coverage of the situation. although russia says it's ready to provide
11:09 pm
evidence of ukraine's actions. meanwhile, residents of this approach, it region are asking the i 8 to stop key of shelling of the plant which is endangering the safety of millions of lives. we spoke to steve gill, a radio host and political commentator, who says that the west is perfectly aware of who's shelling the plant. it's just not in their interest to confirm it. from the beginning, the u. s. media has really kind of advocated any journalistic integrity in covering this conflict, which is why you've seen propaganda from both sides get a lot of play and not a lot of journalists on the ground reporting what's actually going on the i. e. a should be there immediately. i mean, there should be an all hands on deck. death on 5 kind of level of getting people in there determining very quickly exactly who's doing it and making them stop. you know, again if, if it's miss targeted russian. shelly then that needs to stop, but i think it makes a lot more sense that the ukrainians are shelling,
11:10 pm
trying to attack this facility, trying to perhaps drive the russian soldiers out of there so that they can re take the facility. but the i a, the, the international community, the united states government ought to be stepping up and making it clear that they know who's doing it, and they're going to hold them accountable. at least 15 people have reportedly been killed and hundreds injured in unrest in iraq. after protesters broke into government offices in baghdad in the poor of a leading opposition chia clerk who has announced his retirement from politics after he was unable to form a government that sparked an outbreak of violence. ah, this latest footage shows protesters taking to the streets despite a nationwide curfew. you can hear long bursts of gunfire as law enforcement battled with protesters inside the government green zone. local resident colleague,
11:11 pm
ali told us that the situation on the ground is much worse despite the government looking to restore the situation is becoming a good guide is rico rico from? i'm more does it go room? most of the areas around at the beginning zone. my house is about 7 minutes from the green zone and each story $11.00 day stop shooting inside the green zone. my house and the window is the prime minister. my target needs he get lower, does not do all the civilians. but it seems when the army, so that the militia and the demonstrators getting guns and they opened fire to again, they opened fire and a number of the countries army has now reportedly taken full control of the
11:12 pm
government offices by forests warning. you may find the following images disturbing . many of those who died, such as the man pictured were killed in clashes with local security forces. the iraqi army has now reportedly taken full control of the government offices after using live bullets and tear gas to disperse the crowds. supporters of cleric mach data outside or were met by security forces as they entered the ceremonial building . but after the arrival of the iraqi army, the clashes moved on to the streets. the military is now patrolling the capital while a curfew has been declared throughout the country. the latest unrest began last month when iraq supreme judicial council suspended its work after solder supporters camped out near its headquarters to demand it dissolved parliament. his party was unable to form a government despite winning the largest number of heath in federal elections held last october. we heard from political analysts sat, i'll move to libby,
11:13 pm
who says the current unrest in bagdad woodley to civil war. the purchases are still on the streets and the zone we're going to muscle zone as it no, i still surrounded by security forces and large number of witnesses are soon inside the machine. and so also number of armed militia also enter, which are connected 3 d and the address until the area of the situation is moving into more being more critical. it is very possible the civil war. we can actually see the beginning of an escalation that could very easily lead to rules to fall out of the war, which it will be devastating to the oil industry because the civil war will take place. being mainly in the south of iraq where the oil fields and the world exports
11:14 pm
facilities are situated. so we are actually facing real as in danger. and we can see, oh, china demands the u. s. stop all military contracts with taiwan in an effort to avoid further tensions in the region. the concern comes as biden's administration plan, says congress to approve more than $1000000000.00 and military aid to the island. the u. s. arm sale to taiwan grossly violates the one. china principal encourages separatist forces advocating taiwan independence and increases tensions in the taiwan strait. the u. s. side needs to immediately stop arms sales to and military contact with taiwan and to stop creating factors that could lead to tensions in the taiwan strait. that the man came after a chinese foreign ministry spokesperson accused america of deliberate undermining
11:15 pm
of regional peace. that was after 2 american worship sailed through the taiwan straits, separating china and taiwan. may go june, june for the u. s. warship, sailing through the taiwan strait. the eastern theatre command tracked and monitored the entire process. us warships frequently show off their force under the guise of freedom of navigation. this is not a promise of freedom and openness, but an attempt to provoke and undermine regional peace and stability. china once again urges the us to stop hollowing out and distorting the one china principal believe the warships were accused of crossing the median line that separates the chinese mainland anti one. it was the 1st us naval transit in the waterways since us. china attention spiked over this months. visit to the island by house speaker nancy pelosi, scotty now hughes political commentator and tv host. with more details on sunday, 2 american naval ships made it no secret that they were sailing through the taiwan strait. a bold signed by the united states. as is the 1st operation since house
11:16 pm
speaker nancy pelosi visited the island of taiwan on august 4th. now since then, multiple us legislators have visited taiwan, angering the chinese government, and with you as naval ships purposely traveling through the strategic waterway where the chinese have been recently conducting extensive maritime drills. the question on whether the u. s. will push for the ratification of the united nations convention on the law of the c is now being asked is a treaty. the u. s. has declined to join for more than 25 years. and despite refusing membership, the u. s. still has the power to push for ratification because they hold the premier naval force worldwide. however, the currently, the u. s. is wanting ratification of unit close, saying it is essential for the deterrence of aggression by the chinese in the south china sea. however, if you would accept the u. s. a suggestions this could lead to the u. s. a. joining
11:17 pm
the treaty, a move which makes very little sense, considering the u. s. already has a free reign without being bound by any treaty, and giving any power or any more power to united nations. not to mention it would open up the possibility of international lawsuits against the u. s. for climate change and would require the us to pay oil and gas production royalties. now following speaker policies visit china and a sign of strength. and some can say intimidation began to hold a live ammunition drills in the tie when he straight in response. taiwan is hoping the allies like the u. s. was certain international law. principal called the freedom of navigation all to protect the median line between china and taiwan. a boundary which has existed since the 19 fifties and was crossed over by the chinese more than $100.00 times during these recent chinese exercises. now today, while major countries like the united states in the u. k, has said they want to strengthen trade with taiwan. neither have actually committed
11:18 pm
to thin militarily. if a conflict does ignite between taiwan and china reporting for r t. i'm scotty. now he's, while the u. s. is trying to destabilize china's power over taiwan, beijing has that both be in america's backyard. china's influence in latin america is growing with ecuador being the latest country to announce it will sign a free trade agreement at kudos production, trade and investments minister julio, jose prado announced at the administration of president dmo la. sue seeks to achieve a free trade agreement with china this year. ecuador joins or a wife on a ma, columbia in nicaragua, in pending such agreements while 21 latin american countries are also engaged in china's bout and wrote initiative since 2002. china's total trade with le tom countries has skyrocketed from nearly 18000000000 to nearly 449000000000 in 2021. beijing's game has very much been the west of loss, as shown in you. documents revealed by spanish, daily,
11:19 pm
and vice last week. earlier i spoke to gregory will per a freelance journalist and founder of venezuela analysis dot com was convinced that americans dominance over latan countries is waning. china is offering much better conditions in terms of its investment in terms of the deals it's offering to latin america. and so it's making it a lot more interesting for the countries of latin america to switch towards china instead of the united states. and of course, the fact that the countries in latin america have have had social movements that have moved the government towards the left basically with which are more critical of the united states. at the same time as china has become a much more viable trading and investment partner compared to the united states, the summit of the americas that took place in los angeles this year earlier this
11:20 pm
year was basically a big failure because lots of governments and latin america decided to boycott, their participation are refused to participate in that summit and to the u. s. essentially a sabotaged its own summit, which was the 1st and over a decade in our, in on us soil. and so that was a very embarrassing situation, and it's really quite stunning. how are all these foreign policy experts from in the biden administration? did not seem to think that this would happen in the past are literally in the back pocket of the united states government. and that is definitely no longer the case, especially with sort of what happened and what some have been calling the 2nd pink time the f b, i zoned up to providing private american companies with advice on so called foreign threats. that's after mark zuckerberg came clean about censoring the hunter bite and laptop scandal on facebook. after a warning from u. s. federal agents about
11:21 pm
a legit russian propaganda the f. b, i has provided companies with foreign threat indicators to help them protect their platforms and customers from abuse by foreign malign influence actors the f. b. i will continue to work closely with federal, state, local, and private sector partners to keep the public informed of potential threats. but the f b i cannot ask or direct companies to take action on information received. we have the f, b, i admitting that they flagged companies about possible dis, information and the lead up to the 2020 election. and facebook took this advice from the f b i and started calming through various story, then determining to suppress certain stories. and that, that led them to the conclusion that they were going to suppress the hon. laptop story. this is what mark dr. berg said on the joe rogan podcast. the distribution on facebook was decreased. basically the ranking a news feed was a little bit less. so fewer people saw it than would have otherwise. so it
11:22 pm
definitely by what percentage? i don't know off the top my head, but it's, it's meaningful. now since then, we've had met the parent company of facebook, come forward and clarify that while they did not, they were not specifically told to suppress the laptop story. they were simply warned about this information. and that seems to have tempered some of the public outrage. but at this point, there are a lot of questions on people's minds. first people wonder does the f b, i have the right to go to private companies and advise them on what stories should be moved to be removed to their asking? does the f b, i statement suggest that it actually regularly does this the only time? they've been advising facebook and other social media companies about suppressing stories. and the 3rd question is, was this done by the f b i with partisan and intentional purposes? were they trying to help the democratic party? that's a pretty important question. people are asking get the f
11:23 pm
b. i metal in the elections with the hope of helping the democratic party. now senator ron johnson says that he is not alone in raising serious questions about this case. and this revelation, we've seen poles to show that heavy american public known the corruption, the buying trailing of hunter by joe biden, will not be present for the epi ised palletization. there parson ship and there are suppression with a 100 by a laptop, but that is the definition of police think behavior. a government agency independently decides it's going to determine the outcome of a, supposedly democratic election. does that look like legitimate use of law enforcement authority? do you, the government openly, coordinating with free speech? suppose it platforms like facebook and like twitter, or an aquash particular stories on behalf of one political party. you have f, b i, agents using their position to collude and conspire to change the outcome of an election. now, the poll numbers seem to indicate that this had
11:24 pm
a big impact on the election. one poll shows that 80 percent of americans believe that trump would have been reelected if there had actually been notable coverage of the 100 biden laptop stories. it also doesn't help that we now have the i whistleblowers who are coming forward and saying that they were told that, you know, and members of the u. s. senate were basically told not to dig in to the 100 by the laptop story. that's pretty big information when you look at the details with the whistle, blowers, et cetera, it's starting to look like what summer calling election interference. these new allegations proved even more evidence of f b i corruption. after the f b, i obtained the hunter bite and laptop these whistleblowers stated that the local f b i leadership told employees, you will not look at that hunter biden laptop and that the f b i is not going to change the outcome of the election again the f b, i cannot be trusted with the handling of hunter biden's laptop. now members of the u. s. senate at this point are saying that they would like the opportunity to grill the f b. i about what actually happened in
11:25 pm
a congressional hearing. and facebook is now back tracking up from what was originally said. so at this point, people looking on the questions are getting bigger, but it appears that all is not fair and love and politics. biden's democrats, son is clearly having it a lot easier than republican donald trump. in an editorial the new york times thinks the f. b. i should finalize ongoing investigations into the ex president and put him in jail. no one should revel and the prospect of this, or any full or precedent facing criminal prosecution. mister transactions have brought shame on one of the world's oldest democracies and to sublime his future even justice before the law will not re sustain no will prosecuting. mr. trump fix his structural problems to lead to the greatest crisis in american democracy since the civil war, but it is a necessary 1st step toward doing so. among trumps most recent problems are in f. b,
11:26 pm
i right on his mar lago residence, a search warrant secured on suspicion he broke the espionage act as well. however, trump has denied the accusations and claims that biden's administration is trying to throw him in jail. so he'll be unable to run in the 2024 elections. all right, let's go live to discuss with barbara e heart, a republican state representative for idaho. the new york times claims trump's persecution is the 1st step towards fixing america's structural problems. what do you make of that statement? it's sounding like a fascist statement to me. it's sounding like we have big business, big corporations, big media, all colluding with the current administration the by the administration. that sounds pretty corrupt and that's what sounds like fascism if that's what we're, if that's the point we've gotten to here in america, we need to write that ship. and unfortunately it looks like that's the point we've
11:27 pm
gotten to everything that's happening right now. when it comes to these policies, and this is administrations which hunt means that if this can happen to a sitting president, this can happen to any one of us. and we as american, should all be concerned about that. it doesn't matter if your democrat, independent or republican. this is not the american way of justice. the washington post senior editor has also suggested that american society is now so polarized, like you mentioned that it is close to a full scale civil war. do you think that's actually possible? no. what i think that you'll see. i happen way before. that is exactly one of the things i'm working on currently here, which is the greater idaho movement where you have a state like oregon right next to i'd hoped that wants to move. it's the people who are like minded, like us, want to join in with idaho. and that would be a big border shift and lead the crazy people in portland. and in there they're very
11:28 pm
liberal state legislature to do whatever it is they're going to do. i think what you're going to see is region start to align together one with another. i and just say, you know, if this is what it's coming down to, we're going to preserve our way of life regionally. but i, i don't, and i sure hope that we don't have a civil war pending. and given the latest allegations and the f, b, i's the affidavit, how possible is it that trump will be arrested or even imprisoned? and if so, what kind of reaction could we expect from conservatives? you know what? something like that would be an absolute abuse of authority. they have the, by the ministration, the obama administration, whoever's really in charge, has been telling president trump endlessly and needlessly and creating these oh, a mock january 6 trials were only one side gets to be hurt. that is not, not only is that not the american way. i don't even think that's the way of most of
11:29 pm
the countries out there in the world today. most people want to see some form of justice, even events fake and the pelosi trial the, you know, the list cheney mock trial. it's not even trying to be fe, get is just one sided. we all know it. and it's a sham. i just, i think that the worst thing the, by the ministration could do, would be to do something such as a, then take president trump in to put him in jail. now that could create an upheaval that would be completely unnecessary. it would definitely be with his ministration . barbara, a heart, idaho state representative. thank you very much. and you and that's are up on the hour's top news stories from the globe for more news head over to r t dot com. and don't forget to follow us on twitter gab, rumble and odyssey. see you next time. ah,
11:30 pm
ah. ah, north atlantic alliance recognizance that grafted warships cruising close to russia's borders have become commonplace. along with military hardware redeployment and large scale exercises. nato has also developed its offensive capability near the russian borders.
