stretching as we heard that maybe into november's election beyond one side note was warning only a biden victory can stop the violence democratic party think tanks insisting anything a win for their man is going to bring more chaos we got more that story ahead. but not before we talked about this more covert i'm afraid to tell you about france now returning covert restrictions after another surge of cases it's 7 regions to its red zone list and 22 schools have been closed just a week after the reopened leaving parents frightened to do bones got the latest for you. this is the 2nd week of school in france and already some of those schools have had to be closed down because of cove it 19 within the institution now last week more than 12000000 people went back to the classrooms and that was with some parents and teachers expressing concern about the transmission rates of the virus
6:09 am
because they have been really creeping up hearing fronts last week several days there were more than 7000 cases wedged in a 24 hour period 22 schools have been shut in the last week but hundreds and hundreds of classes have also being closed down the education secretary here in france has been outlining when such a decision should be taken. out of the small 12 establishments colleges and schools were closed the main line france considering there are 60000 establishment in the country these numbers remain relatively low in the overseas reunion region we closed down that makes 22 in total function and function well there are now 70 new zones in france that have been declared the red zones this means that they are areas with a high active transmission rate of 1900 it means 28. regions in total are considered rent in the french area and this allows authorities to impose
6:10 am
extra controls to try to cook the transmission of the virus one of the measures that authorities can take when they're in a red zone is to impose something such as the obligation to wear a face mask here in public such as we have in paris which means every street you're in you have to wear a face mask but there is a backlash against such measures like that anti mask sentiment also being shown elsewhere across europe with protests over the weekend from places such as the u.k. in spain to italy. and use and. it. was. meanwhile here in france there are some calls for
6:11 am
people to wear face masks specifically from the riders of the tour de france which is making its way through the country at the moment it's beg to its fans who are coming out to the streets to wave them as they passed by to be responsible and to wear masks so it seems there is a huge divide still over the measures that are being used to try and curb 1000 whether that's wearing a mask whether that's a quarantine or whether that's imposing lockdowns local restrictions the methods being used to remain highly contentious. 2 months before the u.s. presidential election even harms the democratic party think tanks are already predicting the consequences if their opponent wins apparently they know that anything other than a joe biden win will lead to violence kill him open report. in november the us
6:12 am
public will get to vote on who becomes president for the next 4 years and figures from the media and political establishment are now preparing the public for possible outcomes something called the transition integrity project created in 2019 is planning for things that could go wrong during the upcoming vote and subsequent transition of power they've been playing out war games and some rather interesting scenarios have been dreamed up with the exception of the big biden win scenario each fire exercises reach the brink of catastrophe with massive disinform ation campaigns and violence in the streets and a constitutional impasse the transition integrity project is not the only outfits thinking along these lines hark fish an outfit funded by michael bloomberg does work for the democratic national committee as well as pro biden super pacs is planning for hypothetical situations that involve mail and voting confusion when
6:13 am
every legitimate vote is tallied and we get to that final day which will be some day after election day you will in fact show that what happened on election night was exactly that and the rush it lou played donald trump was in the lead and he fundamentally was not when every ballot gets counted hot fish predicts that such a situation could lead to donald trump refusing to step down and that's rather similar to the transition integrity project are you seeing a pattern here well the new york times certainly has if trump claims a victory that is not rightly his a few munches in the streets will not be an adequate response that may have to be a sustained campaign of civic action as in hong kong and bella ruse to rally the majority that wants to preserve democracy that isolates those who would undo it trump is equated with civil unrest so naturally only biden's. victory can save the
6:14 am
country from chaos don't buy it and let's not forget another factor being thrown ian allegations of russian interference the allegation is that russia favors trump and denigrates biden so russia must be preemptively punished before the elections even happen to prevent meddling with us to draw upon the conclusion of the intelligence community to identify and target for sanctions all those determined to be responsible for ongoing election interference including any actives within the government of the russian federation and the russian act is determined to be directly responsible and those acting on their behalf providing material financial support for their efforts russia is also accused of spreading rumors about mail in vote in order to undermine the us elections but it's not really russia that's doing that unless of course the kremlin controls american t.v. networks there are cases from just this last spring or were ballots have gone
6:15 am
missing and turned up after the election so what happens when the post office is doing its absolute best ads are humans fraud violence mail and voting already happening. not speculating now the election is still 2 months away but they are already pairing for how to handle the results. will be the hero and how they will tell you to react they're already setting a climate where there's going to be massive speculation about rigidity of this election they said the exact same thing in 2016 that shrum were is not going to do you could see the election if you loses and then what happened oh the democrats didn't concede hillary didn't concede we don't want to russia gate for 2 years if the democrats lose if joe biden loses in fact i think any supporter be smart to not be in there if they learn a liberal city it's not be there on election night they are going to burn the place to the ground they know they're going to lose and so they're already setting up the game to further damage his presidency and to damage his 2nd term should he win so
