ministry though is called the outage an act of sabotage by the united states. after all we have seen after the statements from the spokesperson of the north american empire and those who support them no one can be sown a minute to leave this is a render it is an intact we are homeless that. cannot be normal but fifty percent of the hospitals do not have electric generators and the other fifty are berber able to operate during an emergency the government is inefficient and corrupt and we know that the end of darkness comes when the usurpers leave power in venezuela meanwhile the u.s. special envoy interim president elliot abrams also threatened new measures against president maduro. we are using sanctions and diplomatic actions to pressure the moorer regime hopeful that other countries will use these and other tools at their disposal to. you know it's always it's out there it's always

a possibility we have not done it yet. and i wouldn't want to speculate as to whether the real or what would lead us to make that additional decision the battle over the venezuelan presidency which has dragged on since january appears stuck in stalemate president maduro is still in power and it seems washington has no backup plan to force him out as he goes down off now explains the u.s. is back to square one on venezuela and an ambiguous confession by vice president pence how much longer do you have a timeline but there's no timeline now rewind just a little over a month ago and here's mike pence the same mike pence announcing venezuela was on washington's laundry list in spanish. i'm mike pence the vice president of the united states the united states supports the courageous decision by one god or the president of your national assembly to assert that body's constitutional powers
1:04 am
declare madeira or your syrup or and call for the establishment of a transitional government that was the moment washington put itself into regime change gear since then the us heavily invested itself in the crisis so how did it come to this a thinly veiled admission of failure after all it looked so bright at the start in me a week's washington projected a no name mob cheer leader into the international frame one why dole became the poster boy of the social upheaval has his presidential ambition was quickly backed by america's allies brazil has just issued a note recognizing one why do as venezuela's president one way door when. one go to war one in your way though you know. since then though america's plans started to go into a frantic nosedive my duro wasn't going anywhere hadn't still has the army on his

side and his supporters showed the opposition didn't own the streets of caracas then a big ruckus with aid the us tried getting into venezuela and which material didn't allow concerned washington was using its old trick to smuggle guns to arm the mob which clearly showed just who's still boss in venezuela the scandal and the brawling on the board eventually did absolutely nothing to move america's regime change train forward everything the u.s. brings to the border piles up there why do so is a post a president with no real power in the country he himself is shuttling to and from venezuela with little effect washington seems to have resists. the temptation to go for the favorite tactic of sending a few thousand soldiers to a score to the undesirable leader out of office at least for now and when
1:06 am
confronted with the what's next question resorts to the same boilerplate platitude over and over again all options are on the table all options are on the table all options are on the table all options are on the table which all things considered sounds more like no options are on the table and actually things didn't go much further than ola in the first place where there has been unable to deliver on his promise to allow humanitarian aid in the military has not left the side of president durable you can you support him and wedo is looking like a shrinking power and expanding and so this crusade to appeal them watching that means the united states will try other attempts are not going to give up as the u.s. talks about. colombia saying no brazil saying no european governments are saying no people do not want to see that kind of escalation it's cold it is the way those for
1:07 am
the united states is really in a small box that shrinking and washington says it won't use force to deliver humanitarian aid to venezuela that said another batch of u.s. aid has arrived at the colombian venezuelan border in defiance of an official ban self declared leader why don't promise to get the supplies into the country but president maduro is refusing to allow u.s. aid in calling it a trojan horse and a pretext for intervention he is though accepting help from the red cross and the u.n. we also want to call from the red cross about the agency's work in venezuela. situation . in mind all. the security. we are going to give you the last more than two years in any event. in the role in the world there are by now of course the lack of resources that we. need to have more engine about the
1:08 am
when you travel and bars are all and it's like aspirin laws we are birds they're human beings regardless any kind. and yet if you live. there you know where all that is necessary to play in syria that people is over in them we. were or were not there is going to be by working with other actors in our . vision i don't really. eat all of our lives including the security of. former us army intelligence whistleblower chelsea manning has been jailed for refusing to testify in front of a grand jury in a case against the wiki leaks co-founder julian assange manning's lawyer says they'll appeal for her swift release this is an appealable order judge hilton did find her in contempt in open court well it's certainly a typical out for this kind of proceeding as everybody knows chelsea has tremendous
1:09 am
courage our primary concern at this plane is her how well she is confined and chelsea manning first came to fame in two thousand and ten after handing over classified sensitive military data to wiki leaks she was sentenced to thirty five years in prison and spent seven of them there before being commuted by then president obama the whistleblower was aware she could be taken back into custody. i have a history of having to deal with secrecy and a lot of these secret proceedings they tend to favor the government they tend to allow things you know if arius goings on to happen so i am in general opposition of that kind of of this kind of proceedings taking place i believe in the grand jury process i don't believe in the seeking the secrecy of this i have no problem explaining what happened and i've done it before why we should go through this in a secret closed hearing with only the prosecutor no lawyer. this all stems from
1:10 am
when manning leaks more than seven hundred thousand confidential documents and videos because she had profound questions about u.s. foreign policy here's some of what she revealed. on. the democrats'. butter and human rights campaign a pita tatchell says it's suspicious that the hearing was being conducted in secrecy. what does the u.s. government and reduces system have to hide why can't they conduct these hearings and these charges in open court in this case it's all being done in secret which flies against the fundamental democratic tradition principle the justice should be
1:11 am
open and transparent and i think chelsea manning is quite right to shine a spotlight on the secrecy of the grand jury system and the way in which is weighted towards the prosecution and against defendants during a song jim self has been subject to secret grand jury hearing since two thousand and ten he's never been allowed to know the charges against him or evidence he's not being given any kind of information whatsoever and again this is completely contrary to the basic fundamental hosing measures to fight corruption and the influence of so-called dark money on the election process. h.r. one is designed to do that to restore ethics and accountability to fight back against the interests of big money in our politics no one. we stories that people think that government works for the public interest the people in chest not the
1:12 am
special interests well the bill was criticized by the republicans who accuse the democrats all of a power grab claiming the legislation will not solve the problem that much of the government can be bought off that's why trump got so much applause with this slogan we are going to drill through our clogged drain the swamp sua we are going. to swap out. the lawn. whole show that a pretty solid majority of americans want new laws to restrict the amount of money that can be contributed to political candidates in american politics dark money. special interests dark money fund a campaign the pernicious influence of dark money in our politics money there's no disclosure about who's bankrolling the center for the executive branch is drowning in big money corruption so for dealing in lawlessness dark soft money coming into
1:13 am
the election process so what exactly is dark money well it's money contributed by non-profits social welfare organizations labor unions and trade associations all of which are not required to disclose who their donors are so essentially it's dark money because it's off the books nancy pelosi has voiced her concerns this is about instilling the confidence of the american people in the political process in what happens in government that is the people's interests that are being served not the darkness interest of that special interest money but here's the thing in the congressional midterm elections the democrats actually received more dark money than the republicans did the group majority forward closely tied to democratic senator chuck schumer spent forty six million dollars in ten different senate races and even money out of politics socialist because you cortez has actually been facing some recent harsh questions about dark money that she received we decided to talk to new yorkers and see how they feel about dark money and politics it should
1:14 am
be happening and it's a deeply complicated flaw of the united states to stand up so it's legal lou smart what's good i think transparency is best when it comes to money the dark art of dark money is not divided along party lines but there are plenty of questionable contributions in american politics that are right out in the open from big oil companies banks and defense contractors it seems that yes dark money sounds scary but it may not be the biggest problem in american politics the problem may be the influence of money itself the democrats are making great use of their money at the problem is influence politics so. they know trying to expose dark money is they're really going to change anything they've had their own major problems for the democrats really while they have a change in the conversation and clearly that's what they're pushing here this entire bill is nothing but

hawks. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. very dramatic developments only. exists i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. c.n.n. is facing questions over diversity within its top brass it's after several groups representing the black community in the united states pointed at the absence of minorities in the company's executive board diversity has been
1:18 am
a running theme at the american. what people in europe in america ought to be proud of what they should be celebrating all the remarkable achievements of diversity diversity in the workplace diversity inclusion respect integrity diversity and inclusion it is core to our culture that diversity and inclusion is the path forward to ensuring that your bottom line is great until you can in the top ranks that includes executive produces vice presidents and other senior positions as well the national association of black journalists which first raised the issue has blasted c.n.n. for failing to meet its delegation to discuss the diversity kept members of the group line the meeting pointing at a dispute with the associations vice president we spoke with a member of the national association of black journalists about why the whole issue has become so problematic we have been monitoring c.n.n. for several years along with the other broadcast and cable networks here and we've noticed that there were no people of color no african-americans in the top decision
1:19 am
rank making positions this is where the decisions are made not only about coverage but who will cover it how it will be covered what resources they are able to use to do that quite often this is the decision level where a lot of stories are either elevated or just pushed to the side and quite often we haven't learned through experience that stories about people of color or concerns of the african-american community in the united states don't often get the attention that they deserve this is a major concern to african-american journalists and should be to them since they serve the entire community in the united states not just one particular group. next turning out in their thousands women around the world march for their rights and equality on international women's day on friday with some of the largest rallies taking place in germany france spain turkey and argentina.

1:21 am
now there's a conspiracy theory claiming democrats are murdering children and the deep state is creating diseases and this one is getting rave reviews on amazon great read it exposes things that are going on that the mainstream will not report thank you very much for spreading truth in the end justice will be served and freedom for all will prevail truth shall set us free theory once lurking in the darkest corners of read it and four chan is now under the spotlight and thanks to who the mainstream talking heads who decided to trash on it probably played a part to q. and a conspiracy theory group called q anon he went on which essentially believes the entirety of the democratic party are conspiring and running an underground pedophile sex trafficking ring it with already has watched this kind of thing there's no surprise these queuing on conspiracy folks are now showing up to troll brownlee's this is all insane and incoherent with how little americans trust the
1:22 am
media these days the call outs are working more like promo q. and on rose to amazon's number one bestseller in censorship and politics it's even pushed aside classics like the dystopian novel fahrenheit four fifty one. coincidence i think not. if you're looking to expose the masses to some controversial content mainstream attack sometimes don't go far enough to censor it like when platforms banned info wars conspiracy theorist alex jones is content from their platforms they only actually took action after weeks of media pressure after jones' popularity shot through the roof you tube users viewed his talk on joe rogan's podcast about ten million times it was a perfect platform for all the android elves and drug crazed aliens they've got like astronaut level peep. will taking super hardcore levels of drugs and going

into meetings with these things and making interval act deals the nazi's view of the deep literature they believed they were being possessed by entities they were psychically connected to each other and would work like robots here's what he really believes. the elves are biological androids the great this in theories on television clearly doesn't work but promoting conspiracy theories well that's a different story some people actually have some type of paranoid delusion don't see bans on social media only strengthen the conspiracy theorists because they say if it wasn't such a you know a terrible thing that we discovered they wouldn't be hiding it would be suppressing us so a it given that belief that there is something being covered up and beat it makes them feel even more self-righteous saying that i am one of the few people left you know to promote the truth i have to do it and they're more motivated to find some way to promote whatever pet theory or conspiracy theory they have thanks for
