here's what people have been saying about rejected in the senate is full on. the only show i go out of my way to launch you know some really packs a punch oh yeah mr john all over a party america is doing the same we are apparently better than. the sea people you've never heard of love down to the night i'm president of the world bank so very. seriously send us an e-mail. to. us the east coast of north korea pyongyang claims the president is on a suicide mission. present my call russia through his overhaul of the country's labor code despite a few obvious backlash on the streets of paris. and with just hours to
go until germany's federal election looks at the main candidates on that final push to win over voters. watching l.t. international live from moscow with me in a day or two to welcome to the program the foreign minister of north korea has sent a strong warning to the united states in a speech to the u.n. general assembly. we will take preventative measures by merciless preemptive action in case the us and its this or forces show any sign of conducting a kind of decapitating operation on our headquarters or military attack against o. country. let's cross live not samir khan in washington d.c. so where can you bring us up to speed on the war of words between the u.s.
and north korea. yes well according to the pentagon the u.s. flew its a b. one b. one b. bombers an f. fifteen fighter jets on a mission off the eastern coast of the d.p. r. k. this the u.s. says that this is the farthest north of the developed demilitarized zone any u.s. fighter or bomber has flown at the century now this all comes after trumps heated threats at the u.n. saying that the north korean north korean leaders on a suicide mission for himself and the regime now even though the two leaders are on diametrically opposed sides of the conflict their rhetoric secretary general similar let's take a look mr president we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea rocket men is not a suicide mission for himself and for his regime none of the trump himself is on
a suicide mission. in case innocent lives of the u.s. or harmed because of this suicide trump will be killed totally responsible. now with the u.s. is latest action and with tensions escalating every single day it remains unclear where this will lead. ok thanks for update there artie samir a comma in one of donald translated speeches on north korea he came up with a new nickname for leader kim jong un. you can't have mad men out there shooting rockets all over the place. rocket man should have been handled a long time ago. he'd try to insult the supremes of my country by referring it to
a rocket we do by doing so hardly ever really committed if you don't even irreversible mistake of me all wrong kids visit the entire us mainland inevitable all the more there was a response from north korea's leader kim jong un said that donald trump was mentally deranged he called him a rogue and he used the old english term doto to refer to donald trump now donald trump has shot back and referred to kim jong un as a mad man now as these heated words and accusations and threats are being exchanged the russian foreign minister was taking questions from reporters at the u.n. headquarters in the press briefing room and he touched quite a bit on the crisis on the korean peninsula it's unacceptable to something that north korea's nuclear test but it's equally unacceptable to start with in the korean peninsula china and russia will continue to insist on a move reasonable approach in contrast to the emotional one we see now where they behave like children fighting each other in kindergarten and nobody can stop them
it's necessary to cool those hot heads we need to pools we need dialogue one thing that was raised is that from the beginning of the crisis russia and china have had a joint proposal for what they call a double freeze they have called for south korea to end its provocative military exercises and in exchange north korea would end its nuclear proliferation and its provocative missile tests this proposal from russia and china seems pretty straightforward but no one seems to be taking that proposal seriously so a lot of interesting comments from surrogate lab robert specifically talking about the korean crisis he was saying people need to be. sure they need to focus on diplomatic solutions and not the intensification we've been seeing. paris has seen more protests after president micron's side five executive orders to rush through his controversial labor reforms on friday although largely peaceful there were some clashes at the main demonstration.
thank you thank you. thank you thank you thank you kong's former rival in the presidential race shown. us that over one hundred thousand people gathered to protest against the president's policies our correspondent policy reports from paris well i would estimate that there were easily around a hundred and fifty thousand people where i'm standing in the bastille square and this follows a promise that was earlier made by the leader of the french leave milan sean that he would be passing in people from as many as three hundred fifty cities today saturday and since the early hours of this morning we have seen people writing here . france is becoming far less democratic now days even more decisions are taken by
officials not by the french people the people who was. killed so the rights to it will say that against the coalition to get work with the people want to show the don't agree and told us what's happening with the decisions of the government decisions that are almost always in favor of the ruling classes who have money and people who work there not so thoughts about which is why we need to show that we're here to stand up for our rights talking to protest that they are taghreed basically angry with the statement that mcconnell made not so long ago calling them slackers for sure they didn't get it minister and i will be absolutely determined to that i will not yield in any way not to sarkozy of not to cynics not to extremists music from now days that is quite imaginative find our way out. and we're making our way down this road. our.
there are some kind of. what the french police raid on seems like. it. but as they march with the protesters here are speaking today what they're most concerned about is that the. unions lose how well it will stay in power companies to be able to be fine people so really the mood on the ground is one that people are not going anywhere until mcconnell himself make some changes. the latest that we'll bring you the latest on the german federal election right after this break.
welcome back to the program germany is gearing up for his federal election polls will be opening in a few hours and the altie election team is following all the developments from belin. continuance of. north korea of the coming hours but of course to do or say the focus here was going to happen over the next twenty four hours here in germany the very heart of europe welcome to our special election coverage live from the heart
of berlin with me kevin owen and may make the error and have now the results of sunday's vote will determine whether chancellor angela merkel will remain in power for a fourth term it's going to get old picture this election sixty one of the half million people able to vote those polling stations open a spokeswoman say it's called might you know so twelve hours time now in case you missed any of the build up to this we've squeezed together the highlights of the election season for just fifty seconds. and. here's a. funny stuff. and then a downside and a few people come. back up the whole bunch think that's what i do these are. what i'm going to find that. i deserve you
skip to. the final campaign rallies have taken place in major cities across the country with candidates doing that most to breathe new life into their political image. quite literally this armstrong. merkel showing her first aid skills at a rally in northern germany to the sounds of the rhythms yes if you're old enough to be jesus and alive talk to say that temple is highly suited for performing c.p.r. if you have one that there was fear quite cheerfully of the event in contrast the key to the rather embarrassing or little bit of embarrassment that went on in a big rally munich early. on the only thing.
i. find if you look at the budget through college voyage times. has started to be. quite the same atmosphere there is anglo-american down to the way still washee was trying to win over any floating vote is around two hundred protesters had called the chancellor and a number of well rested. so. to be elected chancellor for a fourth time about the end of the turn there will be a new generation literally of germans that have seen no other leader in office microsoft notes many of her rivals indeed have come and gone through her twelve years now at the top of the show to do bensky reports next how merkel has become somewhat of a political survivor. not just a political survivor she is known as being the mother of not just germany but for some the mother of europe and some describe her as being a political dinosaur now under merkel hopes the results of that election tomorrow
during that duration three terms sir paul anglo-american has seen highs and lows let's start now by the fact that germany has for a long time during her first term and even into her second term in office seen as the powerhouse the engine over europe in terms of its finances that was hit slightly during the euro crisis that we've seen over the last ten years or so with germany having to bail out many other countries and forcing the european union to help bailout many other countries including greece we've also seen the migrant crisis with around a million refugees coming here to germany and then of course there have been many incidents of terra. cotta. she saw a big dip in the polls in two thousand and sixteen with some people thinking that
she may not even contest this election for a fourth time but two thousand and sixteen was a long time ago and she has rebounded in the polls since then she is also a person who is kani enough to know that when her own policies are not reflecting well in terms of the public opinion and she's been known to take ideas from other parties some of described as being a bit of a flip flop when it comes to policies elizabeth and those who have been persecuted who are refugees displaced by war should be allowed in europe. that is current if i could i would turn back time many many years to prepare better together with the entire government and those responsible for the refugees so there are many ups and downs in anglo merkel's twelve to twelve years in office his three terms it is very likely if the polls are correct that his party will come out on top to morrow but it will still then have to form a ruling coalition if she is to gain another few years in this building our
correspondent daniel hope ins is being busy gauging the political mood finding out what the public really think about this election and where the main fight will be playing out there's no major surprises being expected no shock results being anticipated this election is more about the changing landscape of domestic politics in germany and more of a litmus test for her popularity and voters confidence in her policies will put out in central but it all day speaking to people this is the word on the street we have kind of a stalemate you know that nothing's really moving politicians i would translate she's pretty good on one hand side on the other hand side sees since twelve years now in office and so i think this is definitely a time for change to have fresh power even if she's a powerful woman over there says i think it will stay more or less the way it is there will be no groundbreaking difference because merkel will carry on and that's
good for me to start this morning that is just as predictable as hillary clinton becoming the next u.s. president so you never know and i hope people including myself about trying to vote should teach at least to avoid. going together with the f.t.p. because there will be a kind of very near liberal coalition that many including myself want to avoid having or maybe were happy that she did not many things going to change because i think a lot of things are pretty ok so pick change over. covers a bit of big risk as well. oh i think one has to be changed i for one am not a fan of merkel no one that i know is a fan of merkel and i hope this will cause a big change i think many commentators would agree there is no deep divisions or heated passions for this election but really the voters can be divided into several distinct groups the michael finds who think the c.d.u.
is the way forward they're happy with the status quo those who feel it is need for change and for some fresh faces but within the confines of mainstream political discourse perhaps voting for the the social democrats or the freedom democratic party a few people within the centrist framework those voting for fringe parties and those voting to stop those fringe parties they may be the d. they've made some surprise last minute games going up a couple of percentage points they could be in for their first seats in the bundestag the first the right wing party far right party considered by many to do so in german history can they be the next joe but opposition party that is could be the biggest change coming out of this election will find out soon enough but you know we're now joined in our studio by mr grunow crown the former chairman of the bell and balance of the pirate party thank you for coming in i know your child a long way to be here with us tonight we really zero appreciate it now everyone's saying that the outcome of this election is a foregone conclusion do you think that's so are we going to see some upsets and surprises well i think one surprise for many people will be i think i'm not happy
about it but i think that he will be most likely on position number three and it will change a lot like the balance of power in future coalitions so i think the show will be going quite deep. and of the. party is way out there in front already and that coalition partners that michael most in this part of the social democrats are comfortable second do you think german voters really have promised to choose from in this election well basically of course a chance. make macula bilby stole the chancellor and she made sure she was secular phase the. second phase in a lot to get this position again basically she was the whole party pushing into the left direction she just everybody so there was no space for the opponents to somehow compete with her so it was sure she wanted to keep the power and i think at the moment at the momentary situation it might be also what the people want because
it gives a certain kind of stability and specially when seeing how right wing parties with no ideas with ideas from the past about closing society a coming up having actually no solutions being just protests it's at the moment i think this what most of the people want stability but one criticism of merkel is the she's leading the country to what is the future plan she's come and come and go on with what the public should change your mind on some things what about your policy what are you going to bring to the party i know you're worried about surveillance state to the voters care about that you can make it a show tomorrow and how well you're going to do this is this is actually true for us it's quite hard to come up with our subjects because people are afraid at the moment you can see whole over the world that nationalistic parties who are more into closing society instead of opening a much more successful empowered party is a party which has an idea like an opening the world like one world this is
something what's at the moment people are not interested unfortunately begin to do well very quickly yes or no iraq is going to be a yes or a we're not going to look at night i think it ok those from former chairman of the berlin branch of the power party with us tonight thank you for being with us from across the general election of course throughout the day it's the last broadcast from us tonight we've got nineteen hours rolling coverage tomorrow from eight in the morning when those polls open they'll be here in the morning i'll be here for the rest the afternoon you're into the night so stay with us sort of international but in a day or of more headlines right after this. and will headlines i'm afraid as a third round up of on the news this i don't get to find us on social media facebook twitter and of course i website i'll be back at the top of the out so stay
with us. on larry king you are watching our amount per student more. on the trial where i've spent countless hours poring through documents that tell the story about the ugly side of. corporate media reach uses to talk about these conner's. i'm going to paint a clear picture about how disturbing how to look forward conduct has been
a model these are stories that you know no accident my parents or your host of american. question. for decades the american middle class has been railroaded by washington politics. big money corporate interests that's thrown down a lot of voices that's how it is in the news culture in this country now that's where i come in. i mean it still on our t. america i'll make sure you don't get railroaded that you'll get the straight talk in the straight news. to me. welcome to contact today we're joined by the president of namibia. didn't have to. and that's why in the bin the those things the other was with the but it was and we've heard of both but bills of to an independent. who does
this but it is the political who delivers the phrases just sort of this out of the goodness of history. with chris hedges. the african national congress on the eve of assuming power under nelson mandela in one thousand nine hundred four apartheid south africa was pressured by the international monetary fund and western powers to walk away from the socialist promises in its foundational document the freedom charter south africa's mines would not be nationalized the huge apartheid era debt would be honored taxing the wealthy to help the poor and fund of element would not take place the global corporations that had profited from were not required to pay reparations the state budget was heavily constrained by the many demands of global capital as a result is that south africa has one of the most unequal income distributions in the world and white landowners and foreign capital is still dominate the economy
independence without economic independence remains a form of servitude and countries in africa in the developing world must battle the chains of powerful global banks corporations and western governments that seek to extract natural resources and exploit cheap labor now maybe a which borders south africa on achieved its independence from apartheid south africa in one thousand nine hundred is struggling not to repeat the mistakes of the african national congress and chart a path that brings with it economic development and justice it is a delicate and difficult dance why. that poor countries around the world intimately and one that illustrates the almost on a saleable and destructive power of global corporatism. president hog is the president of now maybe he was the country's first prime minister wanted to achieve independence in one thousand nine hundred from south africa he served again as prime minister from two thousand and twelve to two thousand and fifteen he was
a member of the central committee and the polish bureau of the liberation movement swapo that led the armed resistance struggle against the apartheid regime in south africa mr president thank you i want to begin by and i know it's something that concerns you how a country with a population of two point four million how you achieve control over your own economy in an age of global capital and we should be clear. in a country that has an inherited structures of perhaps economic racism in the same way that south africa has done. festival thank you very much. and i'm in the small. then of the belief. that is because it when compared to a and we should do it alone to know. and so brave people small as we but after that independence. the decline side it was
so sad to us to try to wipe that this economy was in one hand only and we were about about ten percent was why i pressed. and then. we had to midwife. united nations in that sense of the dreaded less than five countries came in when they realize that. manage change can go dome way so they thought it was a big hole and do come in there's some and where do they have said. colonies that zimbabwe and them are going south africa they thought they should somehow save the interest of the white people therefore they came in to get involved and eventually we had forty five as a nation four to five that is calling for you as well by as elections of course if
you go through negotiations it's give and take all the ideas we had to give up to now given day there was a kind of. proportional representation which will come because that will allow small up bodies to come into and most what who are there now that got elected by because of that principle is that what i thought wanted you to swapo have something to the equivalent of the a.n.c. is freedom charter if you have an economic which was a centrally socialist even marxist did no no you didn't have to go in congress by congress. or this is on the way that he was so but a.n.c. that for a long time but the mc i mean when this is some in you know afterwards some critics like ronnie cuss real's and others have said that the mistake they made was that day and mandela would be included in this is that they.
