our actors to target tribes to target women children men and we have had nothing to do with the crimes of isis with complete impunity allowing them to torture and execute with impunity really will spell disaster for the next steps in iraq in any hopes of reconciliation community it's. the world gearing up for a new year's eve germany has come up with a new way to ensure security safe zones for women are being set up at butlins brandenburg gate party comes in response to a massive sexual assault celebrations two years ago in cologne. marouf an option that has been gauging reaction in the german capital. just like at new year's celebrations the world over hundreds of thousands of people are expected to flock to this place here in berkeley to see out the old and ringing the new you can see preparations are currently on to go in but keeping everyone safe without spoiling the atmosphere is
3:01 am
a huge challenge for the authorities and these here organizers i go in one step further aside from usual safety berries and alcohol bans and so-called women's safety area is being set up it's a zone where female guests who feel sexually harassed of just uncomfortable can get special help it's been manned by members of german red cross and comes in response to events two years ago back then hundreds of women who were sexually assaulted at new year carnivals they were groped robbed intimidated and separated from their friends according to leaked police documents there were more than one thousand cases reported in cologne in hamburg alone more than two thousand men were reportedly involved most of them asylum seekers the new idea of the women's safety area has received a mixed reaction that's a good idea many people feel like need help but they don't know who to ask to do
3:02 am
and having these services kind of nice i think sexual harassment was people who were in groups and you were so how do you get from here to the safe place i mean. it seems a bit far fetched i don't think it's such a good idea it's to me it sounds it's a bit like an early be set up. after freight but this is this is too it's good because it's needed. in front of many it's kind of interesting that they do it in a new year's as a events because i think you'll be better if it's like a long long get to like tutor or like the big. just like want think that you do it first pleasure because i don't know you sounded a little commercial you know way to early in police has also issued recommendations for those who are planning to come here for new year's celebrations including avoiding aggressive groups pain attention when someone gets too close and in case
3:03 am
of any danger reporting to police reason otieno r.t. from berlin a f d party member in the berlin parliament frank hansel believes instead of safe zones for women it's migration policies that need rethinking we feel that there is a new step of. danger coming into our country we've seen it since we have to already build vols against our christmas markets this is a development we do not want to see really policy should change we should not continue to have this mass migration of illegal immigration we do have we have to count and see who the people who came to our country have to register them this is a process which has not been come to an end and we must close the borders in order to have a stable society you can go much further than the security forces or the politicians in germany go so that's a problem and that i think this is not
3:04 am
a good sign for the new year to come. thousands of palestinians clashed with israeli forces and gaza and the west bank on friday. it was was. the. writers threw rocks and burn tires as they confronted i.d.f. troops soldiers deployed tear gas in response and dozens needed treatment by foreign medics masked demonstrations have become a weekly occurrence since donald trump recognized jerusalem as the israeli capital on december the sixth. time and israeli court has sentenced

3:06 am
come to. the. zoo. it will take years until this fighting ends they looking to push out so will compromise and will give this land to the state. he my your duty if i was jewish the soldiers wouldn't come here at six in the morning on a rainy day they don't camp this is just a bedouin house they don't think the bedouins are human beings they don't care that bedouins the citizens of this country they don't care that bedouins live on this land not the country's land. the trying to say is they've lived here for seven hundred and fifty years. many this document is from nine hundred eighty five in the autumn in the air and the second one with the red stamps is also from autumn in times nine hundred twenty nine and this third one doesn't have to do with the land
3:07 am
it's from nine hundred thirty six and these are receipts from taxes for the land. everybody here is family father mother uncle aunt relatives only the alps henri family is buried in this cemetery no one else only al tory tried and their relatives are ball. with the. if you were to take the word of the mainstream media russia has had a very busy twenty seven especially when it comes to. elections around the world although in his latest interview russia's foreign minister had a word or two to say about. it is all above board so each.
3:08 am
of what. you know we. often what you're doing you. just know that you post what i write. you mean you listen to the political news there's a simple you those are words. people which is what. we've said you'll just about the bill will. go to. do so did you hear that russia's foreign minister actually admitted to meddling in elections around the world i don't pay tell us this if i didn't know that it was actually a video. what
3:09 am
do you think do you think that that actually i mean are you surprised by that that he would admit to actually meddling in the u.s. election absolutely i think definitely changed everything that the public was seeing right now and of course he would never admit if they did anyway right it's quite surprising that he would admit something and even go further it's actually it's a prank video it was a comedy show that he did he was totally beings or guys i don't know any i knew. he was being sarcastic ok much more sense you're saying he's joking yeah it was a comedy program yeah right but who knows that he's joking do you feel like people are predisposed to believe negative things about russia one hundred years ago and to say i think that we have very negative connotation about people and yeah it's the way versions of picture than western countries. if you thought that installing the latest antivirus software would protect you from being hacked think again even leading cyber security expert john mcafee has not been
3:10 am
a mirror and he's claimed his twitter account was breached and used as part of an elaborate crypto currency. is what happened. my camera was hacked has been notified.
3:11 am
john mcafee is of course the creator of the popular mcafee antivirus software is also behind a wide range of other cyber security products and we spoke to him about his own recent online security woes and his take on the rise of crypto currency we are on a number of people we will rely on our carriers the telephone sharers rely on twitter my phone was hacked through my carrier eighteen c. prior to being hacked my phone was totally disabled you couldn't call into it i could call out from it they sent to my phone number a special code so that i could get in but it wasn't me it was the hacker. this is something totally out of my control totally out of everyone's control what happened to me is not a threat or there's a great threat to all mine this is a great threat to all people who oppose cryptocurrency most people do not keep their currencies on their own while we're living in a new world and a new world of risks before all of us using the internet access are becoming more
3:12 am
and more efficient and more sophisticated in their hacking techniques this is going to happen to me i promise you it can happen to enable. a plan the most or is coming away here on the program today on seeing clued in we talked to the son of a french aid worker who's been held hostage by terrorists in mali for more than a year the story and more in a much. new year's. resolutions will be created it's all so very exciting let's.
3:13 am
go. to the relatives would hate them. and. inspiring to hear something. thank you. it has been more than a year since a french aid worker who had gone to mali to help malnourished children was abducted . and his seventy two years old sixteen she was taken hostage by local terrorists
3:14 am
in july this year she was shown alongside five other captives and so-called proof of life released by al-qaeda and we spoke to her son who says despite an ongoing investigation he's received no information whatsoever. we don't get to. the paris prosecutor ordered an urgent investigation but it has stalled we're now trying to find new materials to restart it so that it won't be apparent indeed to a lack of results we're establishing contacts to try to trace her and seeking any information to establish with the she's alive and when she might be found so far we have no news nothing concrete be the from the kidnappers not from any contact persons and also nothing from the foreign ministry's crisis center. the number of those kidnapped by terrorists has been rocketing in recent years last year the total number worldwide reached almost sixteen thousand people back in july the
3:15 am
french president and by the way back on cold for the full mobilization of all resources possible to bring sophia back out of a year later she's still trapped in mali. it will be a little but the odds of today my thoughts are with our competitor it's a few people going on who was abducted on christmas eve be sure that all the resources of the state are being mobilized to find her and bring her back to her family but also be certain that as far as i'm concerned i will not give in to any provocation because that is precisely what our attackers want it's good that they can be contacted for support but our family has been disappointed by the government's failure to make any decisions in this case yes it's wonderful that we have being supported with the world who really need support is my mother we need to ask mr quinn about this he has power in the situation he can decide on a course of action it must be admitted that so far no progress has been made in
3:16 am
tackling this matter. but a pastor in moscow the first ship carrying russian for years to gas has reached the u.k. under a new energy deal the liquefied natural gas is produced by a company which the u.s. put on its sanctions list in a move strongly supported by london at the time the first round of washington sanctions were imposed in two thousand and fourteen in response to russia's alleged military invasion of ukraine the u.s. has always been critical of russia's gas supplies to europe saying they undermined the continent's energy security with moscow using fuel supplies as a foreign policy tool so view that britain was also supporting. we have seen how countries such as pigeons russia used tear gas supplies as a tool of foreign policy threatening to cut off supplies or drastically increase prices it's not in europe's interests it's not in our interests it's also a political rather than a commercial undertaking and there is an existing framework in place for the e.u.
3:17 am
to take more aggressive action on north stream two and similar projects if it wished to do so politically however the end of twenty seventeen has seen the u.k. out in the cold and in need of russian gas it all started around three weeks ago when the most important pipeline to britain was shut down due to a crack and then one of the biggest hubs in europe suffered an explosion which led to a spike in gas prices or of britain has faced an unusually cold winter with blizzards on some freezing temperatures and we discussed the story with oil and gas expert mambo solomon. why is the european union abba and but it then bork us sanctions when it comes to their own needs they can put aside vs sanctions for their own benefit and that is the situation with the united kingdom now russia has a lie i've been supplying a few of so i think that will continue of course the united states would like to be
3:18 am
able to to use you over dependence on russian gas out of russian oil but they can now they might try to do sanctions to increase their lies. because. he has fought a more expensive than gas. to professors from san diego state university claim farmers markets in the us contribute to the oppression of minorities in the country presses claim almost half of all markets are set up in a wealthy areas which discourages poor residents and people of color despite the fact that markets are often a stop list in the interest of promoting lower income and minority communities but it's not the first time this year the race card has been pulled on seemingly innocent things.
3:19 am
3:20 am
when they played those shoes there they knew they would be cutting off this community. not to worry we're about forty eight hours away from twenty eighteen for the meantime the news continues and off. i.
3:21 am
hey everybody i'm stephen pope test hollywood guy the suspect every proud american first of all i'm just george washington and r.v. two sensed this is my buddy max the famous financial guru just a little bit different. though no one knows up with all the drama happening in our country i'm shooting the good have some fun every day americans come calling and hopefully start to bridge the gap this is the great american to watch. los angeles the city of luxury and fame but also an alarming number of people living in the streets. the simple fact in l.a.
3:22 am
is there's just not enough shelter even if people on the streets right now decided to come in there's nowhere to come in and it's been a struggle. to get this man from his own response to the problem and constructed dozens of tiny homes for people in need of shelter when you have nothing in order to go. you know having something like this may as well be a castle but do the authorities accept such solution tiny house on a city parking space is not a solution you craft someone wanted touring the site otherwise it'll be a free for all the news there a better alternative to end the homelessness crisis. in two thousand and sixteen the panama paper has shown the world with a tax haven the secrets to trillion united states dollars past are most often fake
3:23 am
in the amount of time that we have it and in the panama papers exposure. that's what it shows for a lot of money it really is. journalism it's an act of journalism looking at things that people want to keep secret and asking why would they want to keep these things secret. millions of most like fonseca don't commence we're examining. all the people we basically have tried to get and i've done the job to this sort of newspaper. and probably other politician which what. other politicians the media would point to find targets such as the kings of morocco and saudi arabia the president of argentina several prime ministers. and russian president vladimir putin of course. i don't think i've had so i have sued so many newspapers for defamation some things don't just happen by chance it was very
3:24 am
striking there were no more americans to go specially with a lot of people from the brics countries specially brazil russia and china their special project reveals what was missed in the media coverage. the panama chronicles. yet. taking years in the week let's talk about christmas and if you have any children in the room you might want to send them away or put their hand inside some sort of burlap bag zaf or worse you know it's out there because my goal before this segment is over. christmas for everybody. i know there is that something about christmas i do
3:25 am
like but if the whole point of the show is the. isn't it a brutal truth the underdog acted side of life then i can't let the fat bearded man escape on time star i got it ok. by the way i grew up with both christmas and hanukkah in my house so i got to see first hand how much hanukkah socks to get they go. to tourists right there just not a day's both right dan which i just put dude give me a pile of plastic choice made by chinese children or get out of my face ok. i'm going to take my coins toys and my fourth get away i want to go. look at a religion you run in here. hey you want to travel religion we're going to take your toys and go to you know i don't like god i do not good start. so this so there are the normal things people criticize about christmas it's based
3:26 am
on materialism and consumerism it's buying stuff you don't need putting it inside boxes that are necessary wrapped in paper you don't like to give to people you're ambivalent about but. the most obvious points or perhaps not the worst christmas or really santa clause is the first kind of grand a lie you're told when you're a little i mean unless your uncle is secretly your father in which case you're dealing with a whole bigger issue. but for most of us the santa clause lie has a lot of important cultural lessons for our young impressionable brains if it shows us that it's ok to lie if everyone's involved in. it shows us that the entire or adult of thor and terry in society that tells us what to do where to go out of the whole whole apparatus will jointly deceive us as
3:27 am
a group like your friends your neighbors the news the weather. norad norad this. group poor its own set of laws. because there is nothing else in a miracle that all of adult society agrees on doesn't matter if it's saving your religion you don't have to be christian if you if you're oh a polytheist who believes every dribble water is a god in and of itself. you still can't walk up to a four year old and go hey you get hosed on this whole santa story the right way follow the money to follow behind. the kids you. know if you do if you do you're a monumental proportions. if you don't agree to join in the law you're an outcast a problem for society to deal with and it gets worse. once you're old enough to know the truth about santa you're told to be part of that's why you're you're
3:28 am
you're initiated into the societal massive fraud club you might only be six or eight or whatever but you take an aside and explain the truth that your parents are frauds and the nicest man you've ever heard of who simply wants joy to the world that guy don't exist at all. not really and then your parents say but when you see your little brother or sister keep the deception a law you're in. you're old enough to help us lie to others. it seems like it's all fun and games but it actually has deep of locations for our cultural mindset in the way we behave in society in his book a holiday hazing ethan indigo smith calls it the santa claus syndrome and he says that program stays with us through adulthood adulthood incrementally decision by decision we call the view accepting allies as
3:29 am
a normal part of adult society government advertising news corp and against all just politics right that's part of the reason it was so easy for the corporate media to tell everyone to hate edward snowden or julian assange chelsea manning they came forward and revealed to us santa claus is a real there's a massive law you your old. take a corner and said that and then the media told us that anyone who would say such a thing is in their head they don't get it right. plus the same idea also indoctrinates us into the big brother surveillance state he knows when you're sleeping he knows when you're away. so be good for goodness sake. when you're little you look to your parents to to see how they respond to these ideas and do they say. this guy is horrifying or i he's just plain cool pretend
3:30 am
everything is fine and then when he's not looking i'm going to grab his red sack put it over his head then i need you to hit him with a hammer all right and you keep it until he stops werman. now they tell you this is how the world words people are watching you so don't do a single thing out of line and can fit in ag like the other autumn of tons and think about the whole being naughty thing if you're not you won't get any toys you might even get cold but you know who else hardly gets any toys really poor children they don't get any either so in the large holiday. so when the largest holiday on the american calendar you basically being poor is viewed the same as being naughty or evil and it gets you hated by the most benevolent man on the planet. job growing only this is
3:31 am
a. this is a true capitalistic holiday rewarding families who are not poor with loads of gifts while reminding others that they're not invited to the party and also there's a whole swatch up thing with the elves but we don't really have time for that and if you don't give me though they're free to leave any time they want they're in the north pole all right santa probably has their jackets locked. somewhere papar they're going to get paid yes it's anthrax and the guys at alcatraz were free to leave any time they wanted. that being said happy christmas merry hanukkah joyous kwanzaa and an orgasmic arbor day to all for you to watch this is.
3:32 am
only ten dollars take the news from behind it as the republicans passed the largest tax the aft ever seen let's talk about the things we're spending our federal tax dollars on it just broke this week in the senate gun spent millions on u.f.o. research yes you have photos such as seen in this actual pentagon video. coming. has everyone sacked or whether he just sneezed on the windshield or like. it or.
3:33 am
maybe someone tossed a pickle off their big mac head to just talk to because they can fly down kind of weird on the it i'm just saying maybe we should fund a committee to research whether we spent twenty million dollars researching a pickle that's all i'm saying. i mean this is amazing that they say that they have been studying u.f.o.'s but i left worried about alien life forms than some people because my feeling is if they want to come down here and try to control the. fine all right have a look around we could use some new management ok. was there a gold cross or no no probs we could use the help. it's not like we're making great decisions on our own for example a federal ban on making lethal highly contagious virus is has been lifted that's right all you deadly virus collectors out there fret no more. you know it's been
3:34 am
really tough to find affordable dang recently it has so. so let me get this straight making a highly lethal viruses that could cause a pandemic killing millions that's cool again but i can't have a beer out in a public park that's too dangerous for society i mean in the worst case scenario i piss in an a.t.m. i write it like in the virus worst case scenario we lose massachusetts. what else are we spending our tax dollars on i'm glad you asked sexual harassment settlements now total in congress one hundred ninety nine thousand dollars that's right every time you pay your taxes while you're writing the check sing the star-spangled banner with hard nipples remember. remember that a few of those dollars are so congress can afford to sexually harass people who don't have and how. how does that even work they claim that is an office expense or
3:35 am
what is that. who wants it back if aliens do show up our first words to them will be nice. but he got seven they're moving on a new study. good too weird for her a new study shows that black americans have almost no money yes a recent study found that black people in the boston area have a median net worth of eight dollars that is eight dollars while white households have a median net worth of two hundred forty seven thousand five hundred dollars. sounds fair to me. maybe that's why the un has come to america to study digs dream poverty. and the level of inequality and destitution actually shocked the u.n. observer but i'm no peer fluffing to post has the answer genius hack shows
3:36 am
how to use amazon prime to help the homeless oh my god does it say amazon is tony ting a tenth of all their profits to house every homeless person in america no no no. it says you can now use amazon prime on your phone to buy and send stuff to someone sitting on the street. that's their genius hack. to use amazon to buy a blanket put have it delivered to a homeless guy i work with what if instead of bags. we created a system that housed everybody what if we tried to advise you. you know rather than just having millions who are but every once in a while there and a blank it shows up. i mean when you think of the big picture amazon is one
3:37 am
of the biggest leeches our society has sucking just its teeth digging into you sucking everything dry but now after they suck us dry you can use amazon prime to mail a band-aid to the victims. yeah. ok. review of victims apparently secretary of state exxon mobil ruffled some feathers when he basically says the u.s. should be careful not to let values like human rights create obstacles to the pursuit of its interests. yeah wrex that's been a real problem for us as the way we've really led human rights slow us down that's like saying a boulder rolling down a hill should stop worrying so much about the squirrel that some moshing. but just in case you didn't get it this is true a leaked memo has now come out from a top tillerson advisor who was trying to educate him on how exactly our government
3:38 am
weaponize is human rights it's said that the u.s. should use human rights as a club against its adversaries like iran china and north korea while giving a pass to repressive allies like the philippines egypt and saudi arabia you know you do have to marvel our ability to weaponize just about anything we can use you can bring us uncouth paul covered syrup and would be like. to kill a dude with that. we could even weaponize attacks on ourselves. recently newsweek exclaimed u.s. government planned a false flag attacks to start war was soviet union in a three page memo members of the national security council wrote there is a possibility that such aircraft could be used in a deception operation designed to confuse enemy planes in the air or in
3:39 am
a provocation operation in which soviet aircraft would have peer to attack us or friendly installations to provide an excuse for u.s. intervention. this should leave us all outraged that we do not attack our own people unless it is via poverty pollution g m o o why did cia and man made super virus. or reboot of t.v. shows that were average to begin with. other than that we do not attack our own people. or also if they don't fit into the acceptable to corporate parties we have tackled for that too which brings me to this week's subbranch to the. russians the french told the congressional which china has turned its laser like glare to green party presidential candidate jill stein they say she colluded with
3:40 am
russia by running for office. and not just running but running as a third party candidate. in fact when she ran in two thousand and twelve this is true she was chained to a chair by police during the entire presidential debates but then when she ran in twenty sixteen she was not change any chairs. so how did jill stein avoid the constitutionally mandated chaining up of third party candidates on. seems highly likely russia did it. this story is developing we will bring you any updates as the mainstream media makes them up in the coming weeks. ahead. and finally let's and with some good news the jury found all six k. thank you thank you. thank you yes yes. yes
3:41 am
yes q this is huge it shows our creative to protest our freedom of speech but really for the moment still exists and. now let's go live to the mainstream corporate media's coverage of this historic moment. oh there. we have to go to a quick break but if you want to read my response to the hippies n.p.r. did against me you can find it at the top of our twitter at lee camp out redacted tonight or on my web site will be back in a few seconds. for you jane is coming the big countdown the ball's going to drop new year's starting resolutions will be created it's all so very exciting let's check in.
3:42 am
about your sudden passing i've only just learned you were yourself and taken your last turn. to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry. so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each day. but then my feeling started to change you talked about more like it was a kid still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave the funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with this one to. speak to us there are no other takers. claimed that mainstream media has met its maker.
3:43 am
in some american cities the police appealed themselves cloying. the reputation of people who walk on the streets of the united states who are at risk from the very people who are supposed to protect that poor people are no more afraid of the police than if. you can see something happening this is like i don't want to call the cops let that happen a resident call the cops in those young black men lose their lives chasing the with the team goes on the trigger you never know better safe than sorry i don't know that someone else is going to. fortunately around here we are guns. still from such precocious place to be.
3:44 am
doing that. right now they have fire and all protection a philco are under tromp over sixty environmental rules are either out or on their way out one third of which have been gutted directly by the e.p.a. here now to explain where things stand is senior environmental watchdog john of o'donnell. all right so what's the latest from a.p.i. well i mean by all accounts it seems like a pretty sweet place to work these days what are you talking about all sorts of environmental protections are getting overturned rolled back at the p.a. and elsewhere are you talking about i like flood building standards or alike and then your freezer new coal leases on public lands are like methane reporting requirements a proven the keystone x.l. pipeline moving forward the go to access by bligh removal of the offshore drilling ban and they are dick rolling back fracking regulations i think that's
3:45 am
a sort of thing that's your. you know well it's a what i want it's great for the employees of the e.p.a. they don't have to do jack. thanks. place the art the hair ages the sky for you and he's like that cool god substitute teacher you dream about as again. as i give a damn that's a very goof ball of all the time and rings it is super sweet and i have to sit in. on this is it your seventh grade history class fantasy this is the environmental protection agency it's kind of a big deal that it run properly and and i'm not by somebody who before being in charge there sued the e.p.a. for team time. rules are still coming out of the p.s.a. just now they're more heavily influenced by industry than ever before so the scientists can all chillax and focus on their passion projects and. projects yes yes the e.p.a. recently rejected findings that say the active ingredient monsanto's roundup is
3:46 am
a carcinogen but they relied heavily on big agricultural industry studies to do so this sort of practice gives e.p.a. scientists more free time to focus on groovy side stuff you know like say download their consciousness onto an external hard drive they can interact with to ensure they don't die alone i mean that is my plan. was i was going to be i want to do their job all right that's what i mean do they i mean i mean if that's the case why have more than seven hundred e.p.a. employees taken buyouts and early retirements as of september both because they oppose the agency's current direction and take advantage of the twelve million dollar initiative launched to thin the rakes driven process quote before you run it just now that they've all left and they've left because they're not paid to listen to that's what it said the head of the agency isn't taking science into account
3:47 am
when making decisions day he may not be taken science into account but both he and trouble are definitely taking cold c.e.o. bob murray very seriously here's this guy's take on climate change in the way it is not real and not scientifically based. it's a theology it's politics. and it's an agenda they attacked the us a.p. . with radical environmentalists. back at me yes it's very disturbing to see mr potato head in a suit but. if it is his hand really is being influenced by him where the right things or things are as backwards everyplace the c.d.c. recently had the word science based brand from their documents. now i'm serious israel alert ever i mean it reminds me i came up with with a with
3:48 am
a joke substitute teacher scott pruitt can tell the e.p.a. you can say was it ever is really environment. i care about mind. you so. we're not going to receive yes this is exactly as v.a. new details have come out about just what kind of doctor you might get if you're a veteran redacted correspondent natalie mcgill filed this report. he said health care for all in this country is exhausting. these there's my health insurance card is just the punch card from chopped creative salad the upside is i'm eating more kale. the downside is i'm still too punches away from getting a free cat scan. but if there is any group of people that shouldn't be battling for
3:49 am
better health care it's our troops specifically care that isn't from doctors whose injury rates rival an arm dick cheney hiding behind a duck blind. unfortunately that's not the case according to a usa today investigation the v.a. knowingly hires doctors with past malpractise claims and discipline for poor care what i'm. doctors a neurosurgeon named john henry schneider has twelve malpractise claims filed against them in fifteen years including getting his license to practice and yanked after a patient died. but even though schneider was upfront with the v.a. about all of the shortcomings in his application the v.a. still hired him after a group of his the medical peers thoroughly reviewed as far away and approved his competency his hiring isn't
3:50 am
a huge surprise considering his group of medical peers consisted of dr nick riviera dr bunsen honeydew and. i don't even think bigger has the credentials to take someone's blood pressure my systolic and diastolic blood pressure can't both be me. this falls in line with a pattern of misconduct that has continued under multiple administrations the v.a. spent nearly six point seven million dollars to secretly settle cases problem boy including medical professionals who committed negligence and misconduct and were allowed to resign with clean references but what makes the v.a. attractive to medical professionals with background histories shady years in the stair maxine waters gives you when you won't let her reclaim her time is that at the v.a. you don't need to have no practice insurance your taxpayer dollars are paying for
3:51 am
claims filed against doctors that never should have been hired in the first place like david houlihan a psychiatry flagged by the iowa board of medicine who told out so many narcotic drugs at a wisconsin v.a. hospital that he went on to earn the nickname the handyman rumor has it if you say his name five times or facing a mere he shows up to your house for as he had made entirely out of stan it spills if we're going to have an administration that stop can't. singing the praises of our troops then we should have some parity between the money we spend to send them places where they're physically and emotionally damaged and how much money we spend to repair that damage last week president buyer of all whiskeys signed a seven hundred billion dollars military budget into law meanwhile the proposed twenty eighteen budget for the department of veterans affairs is nearly one hundred eighty seven billion dollars imagine if the billions we spent on new fighter jets

were actually spent on what boarding providers streamlining care or dissolving medical student loan debt and raising salaries of health care professionals who work in the v.a. thanks specially since i'm twenty two and have been nearly six thousand positions are and physician assistants and more or less the v.a. health system by two thousand and fifteen that number had grown to over seventy seven hundred it's clearly a long way to go before wrongs are righted in the v.a. health care system. but the next time i see someone from our government dell stop disrespecting our troops and an n.f.l. player kneeling during the national anthem i'm yelling back you first. thank you jack ok. thanks joe and we will be off next week for the holidays but good web exclusive videos and more by texting

how does it feel to be a sheriff the greatest job in the world it's as close to being a king as any job there is what business model helps to run a prison now we just do or don't like i said nobody oh visitation they don't no one comes anymore we don't have to serve them anymore is cost effective that's what they want to do that knowing they don't give a damn if you need to charge or not they're actually paying us to put it back into the good the louisiana incarceration rate is twice as high as the us sandbridge what she could is behind such success. in. the.

headlines on r.t. it's about fifty two iraqi civilians from two separate trial. that's a. human rights watch on the program. called safe. it's needed. hundred.
3:57 am
reportedly kidnapped and executed fifty two civilians from two iraqi tribes back in june this year the ethno religious group in the country which abide by their own moral code. report by human rights watch witnesses claim the forces killed men women and children fleeing the fighting between government backed forces the victims were from tribes that had reportedly sheltered and helped eisold militants and we talked to she one rights watch activist. but there are two tribes these are sunni arab tribes one told him to do it the other jaish these are famous tribes from the area of singe are the historical homeland of the according to the is e.b.'s these two specific tribes were complicit with isis and the day
3:58 am
that isis arrived in the area these tribes helped isis to round up his he's turned women into sex slaves and to massacre other members of the z.t. community since then i've spent much time with u.c.d. elders who told me they had drawn up lists of individuals and of tribes and would target them and kill them if they had the chance heard of incidents where what is now a group of u.c.b. fighters you see the militia empowered on the payroll of the baghdad government that has targeted members of these two tribes but what we understand is that they're targeting anyone from these tribes women children men not because they were specifically involved in this abuses and abuses against the he's but just be careful because they carry the name of this tribe according to top iraqi officials in twenty four to no lower than almost seven thousand jersey the people were
3:59 am
kidnapped by ice so as far as we understand there are three thousand still missing . the men would offer us as gifts in the evenings they would get together and treat the women and have their fun with us. it was indescribable funny laugh turned into endless suffering tears and hunger i couldn't do anything not quite as i still loses ground in iraq volker severely again says the unlawful killings and torture of tribe members by year's eve the forces are yet another dog chapter for the water and country if we believe in these battles against isis has been to end
4:00 am
a horrific cycle of violence and year of violence in iraq allowing groups of armed actors to target tribes to target women children men and we have had nothing to do with the crimes of isis with complete impunity allowing them to torture and execute with impunity really will spell disaster for the next steps in iraq in any hopes of reconciliation through community it's. the world gearing up for new year's eve germany has come up with a new way to ensure security safe zones for women are being set up but burdens broad gate party it comes in response to a mass of sexual assaults at celebrations two years ago in cologne. maria for gauging reaction in the german capital. just like at new year's celebrations the world over hundreds of thousands of people are expected to flock to this place here in berkeley to see out the old and ringing the new you can see preparations are
4:01 am
currently on to go in but keeping everyone safe without spoiling the atmosphere is a huge challenge for the authorities and these here organizers i go in one step further aside from usual safety berries and alcohol bans and so-called women's safety area is being set up it's a zone where female guests who feel sexually harassed of just uncomfortable can get special help is being manned by members of german red cross and comes in response to events two years ago back then hundreds of women who were sexually assaulted at new year carnivals they were groped robbed intimidated and separated from their friends according to leaked police documents there were more than one thousand cases reported in cologne in hamburg alone more than two thousand men were reportedly involved most of them asylum seekers the new idea of the women's safety area has received a mixed reaction that's
4:02 am
a good idea many people feel like need help but they don't know who to ask to and having this service is kind of nice i think sexual harassment was people who were in groups and you were so how do you get from here to the safe place i mean. it seems a bit far fetched i don't think it's such a good idea it's to me it sounds it's a bit like an early be set up. after freight but this initiative it's good if because it's needed. in front of many it's kind of interesting that they do it in a new year's as a events because i'd be better if it's like a long long get to like tutor or like the big. artistic one think that you do first pressure because i don't know it sounds a little commercial you know way too early in police has also issued recommendations for those who are planning to come here for new year's celebrations
4:03 am
including avoiding aggressive groups pain attention when someone gets too close and in case of any danger reporting to police reason otieno r.t. from berlin if the party member in the berlin parliament frank hansel believes instead of safe zones for women it's migration policies that need rethinking we feel that there is a new step of. danger coming into our country we've seen it since we have to already build vols against our christmas markets this is a development we do not want to see really policy should change we should not continue to have this mass migration of illegal immigration we do have we have to count and see who the people who came to our country have to register them this is a process which has not been come to an end and we must close the borders in order to have a stable society you can go much further than the security forces or the politicians
4:04 am
in germany go so that's a problem and that i think this is not a good sign for the new year to come. thousands of palestinians clashed with israeli forces in gaza and the west bank on friday. was. work for were. loaded. was. writers threw rocks and burning tires as they confronted i.d.f. troops soldiers deployed to a gas in response and dozens needed treatment by paramedics mass demonstrations have become a weekly occurrence since donald trump recognized jerusalem as the israeli capital
4:05 am
on december the sixth. meantime and is ready court has sentenced a sixty eight year old bedouin man to ten months in prison and fined him more than ten thousand dollars for trespassing but he claims the land belongs to him. as a village elder only to keep it's located in southern israel better when tribes have settled well long long ago well before the state was ever a stop list but israeli authorities believe they occupy the land illegally and send in riot police and bulldoze bulldozers to demolish the village whatever it's built up so far they've level it to the ground more than one hundred times paula slater reports i'm hearing the northern make of desert where there isn't much except a few dozen i'm recognized bedwyn villages this is one belonging to the to retry but there's some two hundred fifty people who live here and they say that this land is they is going back generations but the israeli authorities insist they here
4:06 am
illegally. here. it was. it will take years. until this fight ends they're looking to push us so we'll compromise and we'll give this land to the state. he might be if i was jewish the soldiers wouldn't come here at six in the morning on a rainy day they don't camp this is just a bedouin house they don't think the bedouins are human beings they don't care that bedouins the citizens of this country they don't care that bedouins live on this land not the country's land. they're trying to say as they've lived here for seven hundred and fifty years. this document is from nineteen zero five in the autumn in
4:07 am

4:08 am
what. we. often what you're doing you. know when you post what i write. you mean you listen to the political news there's a simple use your words. which. we've said you know just about the but when you go go go go. by do so did you hear that russia's foreign minister actually admitted to meddling in elections around the world i don't pay attention as this if i didn't know that was actually
4:09 am
a video. what do you think do you think that that actually i mean are you surprised by that that he would admit to actually meddling in the u.s. election absolutely i think definitely changed everything that the public was seeing right now and of course he would never meet if they did anyway right it's quite surprising that he would admit something and even go further it's actually it's a prank video it was a comedy show that he did he was totally being second guy i mean this only i knew. he was being sarcastic ok much more sense you're saying he's joking yeah it was a comedy program yeah right but who knows that he's joking do you feel like people are predisposed to believe negative things about russia one hundred years ago and to say i think that we have a very negative connotation about people and yeah it's the way versions are pictured than western countries. if you thought that installing the latest
4:10 am
antivirus software i would protect you from being hacked think again even leading cyber security expert john mcafee has not been named you and he's claiming that his twitter account was breached and used as part of an elaborate cryptocurrency scam is what happened. can who is hacked or has been notified the kind of the day tweet was not me.
4:11 am
john mcafee is of course the creator of the popular mcafee antivirus software and also behind a wide range of other cyber security products and we spoke to him about his own recent online security woes and his take on the rise of cryptocurrency as we rely on a number of people we will rely on our share is the telephone share is reliant on twitter my father was hacked through my carrier eighteen today prior to being hacked my phone was totally disabled you couldn't call in to a call out from it they sent to my phone number a special code so that i could get in but it wasn't me it was the hacker. this is something totally out of my control totally out of everyone's control and what happened to me is not a threat or there's a great threat to all mind this is a great threat to off. cryptocurrency most people do not change their currencies on
4:12 am
their own while we're living in a new world and a new world of risks for all of us using the internet terrorists are becoming more and more efficient and more sophisticated in their hacking techniques this is going to happen to me and promised they can happen to anybody not just a moment here on the program when we talk to the son of a french aid worker who's been held hostage by terrorists in mali for more than a year that story and much more after a very quick break. manufacture consent to public will. when the ruling close is protect
4:13 am
them so. when the final. see. the big countdown the ball is going to drop new year's starting resolutions will be created it's all so very exciting let's check. it is good to have you with us today it has been more than a year since a french aid worker who had gone to mali to help malnourished children was abducted
4:14 am
sophie patel known as seventy two years old back in twenty sixteen she was taken hostage by local terrorists in july this year she was shown alongside five other captives and so-called proof of life released by al qaeda we spoke to a son who says despite an ongoing investigation he has received no information whatsoever. we don't do it to. the paris prosecutor ordered an urgent investigation but it has stalled we're now trying to find new materials to restart it so that it won't be apparent indeed to a lack of results we're establishing contacts to try to trace her in seeking any information to establish with the she's alive and where she might be found so far we have no news nothing concrete either from the kidnappers nor from any contact persons and also nothing from the foreign ministry's crisis center. the number of those kidnapped by terrorists has been skyrocketing in recent years last year the
4:15 am
total number worldwide reached almost sixteen thousand people back in july the french president emanuel back on hold for the full mobilization of all resources possible to bring back however a year later she is still trapped in mali. it will be a little but the odds of today my thoughts are with our competitor it's going on who was abducted on christmas eve be sure that all the resources of the state are being mobilized to find her and bring her back to her family but also be certain that as far as i'm concerned i will not give in to any provocation because that is precisely what our attackers want it's good that they can be contacted for support but our family has been disappointed by the government's failure to make any decisions in this case yes it's wonderful that we have being supported but the world who really needs support is my mother we need to ask mr quinn about this he has power in the situation he can decide on
4:16 am
a course of action it must be admitted that so far no progress has been made in tackling this matter. the first ship carrying russian produce to gas has reached the u.k. under a new energy deal the liquefied natural gas is produced by a company which the u.s. put on its sanctions list and a move strongly supported by london at the time of the first round of washington post in two thousand and fourteen in response to russia's alleged military invasion of ukraine u.s. has always been critical of russia's gas supplies to europe saying they undermined the continent's energy security with moscow using fuel supplies as a foreign policy tool that is a view that britain has been supporting. we have seen how countries such as pigeons russia used tear gas supplies as a tool of foreign policy threatening to cut off supplies or drastically increase prices it's not in europe's interest it's not in our interests it's also a political rather than
4:17 am
a commercial undertaking and there is an existing framework in place for the e.u. to take more aggressive action on north stream two and similar projects if it wished to do so politically however the end of twenty seventeen has seen the u.k. out in the cold and in need of russian gas it will start at around three weeks ago when the most important pipeline to britain was shut down due to a crack than one of the biggest hubs in europe suffered an explosion which led to a spike in gas prices more of a britain has faced an unusually cold winter with some blizzards and freezing temperatures we discuss the story with oil and gas expert mon dieu. why is the european union and but it then boricua us sanctions when it comes to their own needs they can put aside the sham of the sanctions for their own benefit and that is the situation with the united kingdom now but i sure have is it a lie i've been supplying
4:18 am
a few of so i think that will continue of course the united states would like to be able to to use euros dependence on russian gas out of washington oil but they come out they might try to do sanctions doing piers that of lies gee do you own it to look at it because he can and he is far more expensive than the russian gas. to professors from san diego state university claim fall most markets in the u.s. contribute to the oppression of minorities in the country and the professors claim almost half of all markets are set up in a wealthy areas which discourages poor rogue residents and people of color as to spite the fact that markets are often a stop list in the interest of promoting low income and minority communities but it's not the first time this year the race card has been polled on seemingly

this is boom bust broadcasting around the world from washington d.c. i'm bart chilton filling in on this day the star trek episode the trouble with tribbles premiered on n.b.c. as techies and trekkies you know star trek creator gene roddenberry and the writers who developed the star trek universe predicted the development of many of the devices and technologies we use today and it gave us a blueprint for many others that are on the cutting edge of science and technology right now in fact you might be watching this little one of them big screen displays
