10:07 am
china and even in some places in russia they have tight mass with a respirator they can protect other people if you're ill so the mask and help you personally know or only to a minor extent. why is this does the response through our eyes as well yes and also these pools they can protect against large droplets the person becomes infected when he or she speaks maybe i have infected you who are you trying to infect me i hope you won't i also want to be honest masks can partially protect from that. u.s. president will trump a sudden further sanctions on venezuela's oil sector he won't caracas has branded american destructions a weapon of mass destruction accusing washington of waging a masked form of warfare it's been a year since the us formally recognize venezuela's opposition leader as the country's interim president and the fish of the cold shoulder of the legitimate
10:08 am
government of nicolas maduro washington stance on a supposed transfer of power that's looking increasingly hollow as on the scale of more panic splits. when it comes to venezuela the trumpet ministration lives in a kind of alternate universe for example when the country faces a food crisis donald trump says there can be only one cause venezuela's president nicolas maduro people are starving here's a case worker who was wealthy 15 years ago and very wealthy 20 years ago very very well when you look today they don't have water there are no basic food they have no medicine it's incredible what's happened it is we're no we're watching as well a very closely we don't like it we don't like it not at all he fails to mention that u.s. sanctions have been wreaking havoc on venezuela for years or that opposition groups have actually been caught torching food warehouses in the narrative that the u.s. government these things simply don't exist that in excess of us really meant using
10:09 am
the blockade of food medicine and weapons to politically coerce depriving entire countries of their own means to sustain and develop themselves our actions there are completely criminal these unilateral curser criminal actions are equivalent and scope and affected. still weapons of mass destruction but it gets better the venezuelan embassy in washington d.c. has been reopened after diplomatic relations are cut off you'll recall how the actual venezuelan officials were ordered to leave the country so with no diplomatic relations what exactly is this new so-called embassy. somebody who is in there. how well are they able to provide consular services. you see. it's. very interesting because i hear that there an embassy you see this pretend the embassy has a pretend ambassador working out of it it cannot grant visas or do any of the
10:10 am
normal functions that a normal embassy does for one simple reason no one would be allowed into venezuela with those visas because the embassy doesn't represent the actual venezuelan government this pretend embassy is just a big facade representing a president not elected by the venezuelan people but by american officials group and tyranny will be smashed and broken. here this evening so very brave man. who carries with him the hopes dreams and aspirations of all venezuelans joining us in the gallery is the true and illegitimate president of venezuela who on. the eve of the u.s. government insists this is the true leader of the venezuelan people but when he arrived at venezuela's airport the venezuelan people had a pretty different opinion.
10:11 am
back home the one great 0 is not popular polls show that roughly 10 percent of them as whalen support him however vice president mike pence likes to brag about the fact that over 60 countries have recognized him as president this president has led now a coalition of more than 60 countries around the world that have recognize one why go as the legitimate president of venezuela but over 100 countries have not recognized one way to go and still seem as the legitimate president furthermore in the countries where dueto is recognized it's far from unanimous do you not agree that the recognition of glial is an absolute am paris months to anyone that has occupied this chamber and this is this chris and on the part of the member states of europe a some of them have recognized and i like to washington had very high hopes for one
10:12 am
grade 0 hoping that he would go ahead and topple the dural but it didn't happen so it seems that now washington has adopted a strategy of pretending that it did and hoping that others will play along the u.s. is totally broken international law by taking over the embassy in the name of quite oh the din is well and government is the official government of venezuela whenever the u.s. says joke most people in venezuela know. that it's a joke. you can't just declare that somebody is the elected president when he isn't the elected so the us is making this farce a person into the government and then saying that the embassy doesn't belong to venezuela we now have a coalition of the willing who are saying that kwaito is the government it doesn't have any other option i mean he hasn't been able to push that mud euro out. of the 2020 democrats hopefuls in the race for the white house have clashed again in
10:13 am
another t.v. debate the last before super tuesday which is seen as decisive for the party's presidential nomination the front runner bernie sanders faced more attacks from his rivals for herbalists that he made earlier defending the literacy programs of fidel castro's cuba self-styled socialist words word initially made in an interview with c.b.s. his opponents were quick to pounce were very opposed to believe or 3rd tour in nature of cuba but you know you go it's unfair to simply say everything is but you know when fidel castro came into office you know what he did he had a massive literacy program result a bad link after 4 years of looking on in who are as from cozied up to dictators we need a president who will be extremely clear in standing against regimes that violate human rights abroad we can't risk nominating someone who doesn't recognize this fidel castro left a dark legacy of forced labor camps religious repression widespread poverty firing
10:14 am
squads and the murder of thousands of his own people because your bernie let's talk about his literacy program in the debates and this was quick to point out though that his reason keeper with the same as barack obama's and i said this president castro and cuba i said look you've made great progress in educating. young people every child in cuba gets a basic education that's a huge improvement from where it was at my calling done a whole consider the potential impact of sanders remarks on the race with a panel of guests. bernie sanders saying this thing at a time when the democratic party's already split it's divided it's going through perhaps a bit of a p.r. it means here across this i mean this is a really bad decision isn't it sanders to me shows his integrity here look he's been saying this for years that there's videotapes of him saying these things about cuba and fidel castro in the soviet union i mean how can he backtrack on those
10:15 am
things honestly you know he's just you know reaffirming ideas that he has had for many years the concern is not him saying good things about the literacy program it's i said it thing that mussolini got the trains to run on time that was not what it is that people associated with what mussolini did it happened to be the case but he was a murderous dictator as was castro spineless democratic stablish men shows their true colors it's like a litmus test every time you can say one positive word about cuba or the one word in defense of venezuelan sovereignty they want to make sure there's no critique and so imperialist critique of the u.s. foreign policy establishment so this is a very sophisticated form of censorship to try to narrow the perimeter is as we have more and more debates within the democratic party coming out of that anyone can all get literacy is
10:16 am
a bad thing literacy programs that's probably we could all agree on that but isn't this an era of judgment on bunny sourness paul given the old lots of countries with good literacy programs with social programs and robust human rights records i mean this is surely shooting one self in the foot before important electoral race we have a democratic nominee who is tipping is hat to castro the murderer for having a literacy program so it's not just a question of stature ship or narrowing things it's making 100 percent sure we have a nominee who is electable and the concern is once the public realizes what bernie sanders. said in the past he's an unreconstructed socialist and the united states that generally not a calling card the unofficial religion of the united states is in communism and we just have to listen to richard previous comments but to hear some of the anti-communism but the truth is that the youth of this country in the multinational working class who supported bernie in nevada 46 percent of the votes that he won in
10:17 am
nevada they're not socialists they understand who the true enemy is the enemy is not venezuela or cuba or china it's the 1000000000 is right here in the pentagon in the white house the former. mayor of new york city michael bloomberg and on wall street i will quote george w. bush who said we judge other countries by the worst of their actions we judge our own country by the best of our intentions and i think that's true you can look at a country like cuba and yes you can learn about literacy programs that work health care programs that work and we should be able to do that in a rational way again especially when you look at the fact that people like president trump and president obama before him and numerous presidents before them partnered with murderous regimes like saudi arabia which now is being funded by the u.s. in its war against yemen which is threatening to kill millions of people and yet
10:18 am
that is something that isn't being discussed. still to come climate change skeptics want to found their own teenager to boost to the story i'm more after the break. they're just taking over all the alternative all critic. because i say the stage show that this is what's called real choices i.e. the binary choice and only choice is if you say. i'm both binary thing is not a chance for the arab states to slow to provide a new uk fixture revive the call ted and start negotiations with. israel then on invited to negotiate them by to think about what's being put on the table.
10:19 am
seemed wrong. to seep out the answer. and it. equals betrayal. when some find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. to much 80 percent of employees in britain. to say that they hide the views if they don't fit within the broad gnomes and that includes support for the country's conservative party among other things the new surveys revealed a growing environment of self-censorship. our survey shines a damning light on the corrosion bullying intimidation and intolerance that is
10:20 am
active among the community that thinks of itself as liberal open minded and equitable in a poll of some 500 respondents many highlighted the risks of holding so-called controversial opinions they spun topics from bragg's it religion sexuality and gender fewer than half of those questioned said that they felt their views were respected and certainly even claimed that they were offered money to stay quiet about corrupt practices in their field others pointed to why their problems in their working communities it wouldn't be advisable to point out that the arts tend to do well under the conservatives or arts culture and indeed education sectors are not dominated by monolith the politically correct class mostly of privileged white middle class people by the way who impose their intolerant views across those sectors anything to do with gender issues especially trans issues who get a lot of flak either for not being on message enough or being off message or 2 on

10:22 am
students create riots and lobby the university authorities make a great deal of noise in different ways if they think an academic or a visitor who's been invited to speak at the university or one of the students at the university said something which doesn't fit in with the kind of left wing politically correct consensus so there are lots of students who are very shy about expressing their views particularly of the conservatives i don't particularly believe in bricks and. a quick look now at other stories making global headlines. i. a 3rd 'd day of violent antigovernment protests in the indian capital has taken the death toll to at least 20 according to local health officials the rest was triggered by so-called citizenship amendment act which is being criticized for discriminating against
