tendencies mental health issues drug and alcohol addiction the author of scandal led to a national outcry when the scale of the child abuse was first exposed back in twenty twelve two years later an independent inquiry found that for decades through systemic failures in policing and social services the sexual abuse of children went on right under the noses of the or thora tease gangs of men the majority of whom were of pakistani origin preyed on mostly white girls aged from eleven to fifteen many of the victims thought they were in relationships with their abusers when the crimes were uncovered local authorities in yorkshire were accused of failing to tackle the problem partly through fear of being branded racist on the part of the authorities in their cases they were actually saying that these girls made a lifestyle choice it's about the fact that the authorities didn't want to be
branded racist the ringleaders of the rod room grooming going last year i think the distant relatives of mine but you know what it doesn't change the responsibility that people like me have on tackling this particular issue so i've been campaigning against child sexual exploitation and street gang grooming gangs who are predominantly of a pakistani origin for over ten years the investigation into rather abuse or has cost ten million pounds so far four individuals have been convicted eighteen have been charged and thirty eight have been arrested no one senior has been held to account and with just seventeen percent of the victims interviewed so far all this may just be the tip of the iceberg. there no one likes a slow computer but having to replace your old one can be expensive the california electronics recyclers though thought. he had the perfect solution until it got him
into trouble with the tech giant microsoft is accused of creating thousands of illegal copies of its software he argues that he was only using it so you extend the lifespan of old p.c.'s in our faces up to fifteen months in prison and a possible fifty thousand dollars fine longer and insists he was acting within the law the microsoft software itself gets missing d.l.l. files and bloatware and viruses but over time will break down the software so that it doesn't operate and function as intended you might have seen that before if you ever use a computer and it just seems to slow down over time and it needs a every fresh which is what the purpose of a restore cd is so you have a license with your computer and that follows your computer in perpetuity until your computer's no longer working and that computer can be used by hundreds of people thousands of people and the license follows the hardware so the hardware itself over time might get missing d.l.l.
files or it might get viruses and bloat where and what you'll end up doing is you want to refresh your re-install your valid copy of license on your computer and to do that you need three things you need a c.e.o. a you need a license and you need to restore media restore cd the restore cd is free you can download it anywhere online but the c.e.o. and license have to come from microsoft they're the only ones that can provide you with that while microsoft does claim me stags home sales of its license products accusing them of piracy prosecutors allege he made twenty eight thousand illegal copies of microsoft's operating system last year was convicted but an appeals court allowed him to argue his case once more he says his main purpose was to encourage people to use refurbished computers instead of purchasing new ones. i know that if you were to make copies of their license or their seal ways you're directly
stealing from microsoft and you deserve to go to prison but if you're providing the restore cd which is the free thing that you can download for free or that's given to you with your computer if you provide that to consumers you're giving them the ability to repair their legally own property and i see no problem with that i believe in extending the life cycle of electronics and i believe that it helps us be more efficient in society if we're able to use these computers as long as they last i was very surprised when microsoft put me in that same circle with the people that are out there hacking or stealing their licenses or seal ways i mean that is a crime crime that deserves to be punished because you're directly stealing from somebody all i was attempting to do was help consumers use what they legally own i've been a recycler for sixteen years and all i care about is the environment i want to make sure the things that work continue to work for the benefit of mankind. now the
russian presidential election has already started at least in northwest siberia which became the first region to cast ballots in early polling this was organized due to the remoteness of the polling stations there and also the severe weather conditions election officials say using all possible means to transport from heavy culp this to snow might be.
so when you want to be president. that you'd like to be this is what the before treat the more people get. interested always in the waters of our. friendship. trolls are in the spotlight again this time u.s. politicians on the media are accusing them of spreading discord within american society to the recent florida school shooting. expects. when informing us about the alleged danger of russian bots and internet trolls american politicians have been very clear about the intent behind russian conspiracies and sinister operations they want to sow division among the american people and one
issue they've latched on to is this second amendment gun control debate apparently the russians are very big fans of our second amendment they don't particularly want to second member of their own but the really glad that we have one the russians would be thrilled if we were doing nothing but killing each other every day and sadly we are according to facebook's security chief the russians don't favor gun control or oppose it they just want to incite americans against each other and make sure that we don't see eye eye to. the ads and accounts appeared to focus on amplifying divisive social and political messages across the illogical spectrum touching on topics from l g p t matters to race issues to immigration to gun rights so russian trolls are inflaming emotions over any sensitive issue guns included but it looks like we can locate some russian bots not only on facebook but who else is
inflaming sentiments over that oh so sensitive second amendment will take away your second amendment which we will never allow to happen don't take away to provide for some people that might be obvious but trump isn't the only one selling division many in legacy media love mass shootings. you guys are loving. others threatening messages against gun owners a billboard in kentucky has been vandalized with the words kill the n.r.a. that must be the work of russian trolls also if you follow the premise it seems like the mainstream american media is also working for the russians left leaning media outlets immediately calling for more gun control right leaning outlets focusing on mental health connecticut governor dan malloy says president trump and republicans have blood on their hands after the deadly massacre in florida they call it gun control but it's not it's people control when any organization spends
ten of millions of dollars promoting the interests of gun corporations to influence what happens in our elections then yes our democracy is a little broken by americans on both sides of the issue are now screaming at the top of their lungs from the highest levels of government to child survivors of mass murder accusations are flying everywhere now if this is all just some big plot from moscow we really have a big problem here in america. i have been a doing this professionally in terms of you know this type of comedy for thirty years now and then thirty years i think before the russian bots came along they've been saying the same thing every single time in my native florida so i know something about that so if the russians are claiming to take credit for
involving themselves and insinuating themselves in this particular argument they're too late because this has been going on for thirty years and nothing's changed. the u.n. security council resolution regarding yemen posed by russia has been adopted unanimously on monday russia vetoed a draft resolution table by the u.k. it be condemned iran over actions in yemen. reports. russia's draft resolution has passed unanimously in the security council today they met to discuss the ongoing situation in yemen and to vote on two rival draft resolutions one proposed by the u.k. and the other by russia of a u.k. draft resolution called for quote additional measures against iran over accusations that it violated an arms embargo now this came after u.n. experts said in january that iranian military equipment was brought in to yemen after the arms embargo was imposed but also stated that they were unable to verify the supplier and russia's draft resolution called for the renewal of sanctions
until february twenty ninth but did not mention iran the russian ambassador called for political dialogue and expressed the need for the u.n. to come closer he also explained the reasoning behind the veto let's take a quick look i will be frank the wording advanced in the british draft is liable to have dangerous destabilizing ramifications and this is not only applicable to the situation in yemen but also to the region overall this will inevitably escalate regional tensions and lead to conflict among key regional players instead of antagonizing relations in the middle east what we need are measures to seek consensus through a mutually respectful dialogue. in contrast the u.s. and u.k. feel that iran should be condemned and that russia china bolivia and kazakhstan shielded iran from responsibility let's check out what the u.s. had to say russia bolivia china kazakhstan sent an opposite equally clear message
instead of demanding accountability from iran they decided to show to iran from responsibility instead of insisting that iran live up to its international obligations they have invited iran to continue promoting chaos in the middle east their actions will not be forgotten and we will not stop until toronto is stopped and peace is once more possible for the people of the middle east for some context the crisis in yemen started in twenty fifteen when saudi arabia led a military campaign against the who things and since then the campaign has led to the deaths of thousands and reduced its infrastructure to almost nothing the conflict has been described as the world's worst humanitarian crisis as saudi arabia has imposed a blockade preventing any humanitarian assistance or food from coming into the country. i think it. would discover that yes. that's. right that with.
the help courses that's taking place in the province of solder is unprecedented keeping in mind that it was already bad even before the aggression the offensive and brooke aid were initiated and we were hit with this catastrophe which saw volatile infectious diseases spread like wildfire. you're. seeing the. over the six children that come in and need hospitalization there are dozens of cases most of them are due to malnutrition and it's consequences like seizures and pneumonia for example due to the crisis even is now facing cases of my nutrition
are skyrocketing. in december the u.k. provided an extra fifty million pounds in aid for yemen making two hundred five million in total in twenty seventeen however since the start of the saudi arabia's incursion london has sold riyadh four point six billion pounds worth of weapons former advisor to iran's nuclear negotiating team says the u.k.'s rejected u.n. draft resolution missed the point. this is a very devious to resume lucian put forth by the you'll care that essentially got into this blame game situation and a diet humanitarian catastrophe situation where we really need to have the end of this double standard he procreative call approach by by the un toward the saudis
who have gotten away with murder in yemen i think that russia was very sensible and rational and it was twined we decided resolution and russia drafted on extending to reach the sanction regime on an yemen so i really think that the un. save got it it's. wrong wrong there would have waited the situations that up. so that brings up today defense a facet i hear and. i'll be back with more at the top of the. manufacture consent to public wealth. when the ruling classes project themselves. with the final merry go round.
the room. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sport i'm showbusiness i'll see you. chose seemed wrong. but old rules just don't. let me. get to shape out just because the ticket and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground.
greetings and salutations the news cycle can be a very funny funny funny monster or watchers that can bring us a full gamut of emotions from joy to anger and back again sometimes within the days sometimes even within an hour take the news cycle this weekend for example were on one hand we got the not surprising but seriously compete in the backward misplaced priorities of his country get any more misplaced and backwards news when the n.r.a. is handing out c.c. chairman and award for courage yes courage at sea pac on friday the n.r.a. awarded pi the charlton heston courage under fire award for his courageous actions
storming the hill of net neutrality and planting the flag of freedom for all telecommunications giants near and far the n.r.a. in courage seriously three words i never thought would escape these lips but they thankfully this weekend's news cycle also brought us the thank goodness there might still be some good judgment in the world news that a federal judge in louisiana on friday revoked a permit for energy transfer partners by you bridge crude oil pipeline yes federal judge shelley dick dealt a serious setback to energy transfer partners construction of the seven hundred fifty million dollars one hundred sixty two mile long pipeline running crude from lake charles to st james louisiana in the order judge dick wrote that she was prohibiting further work on the pipeline in order to prevent further irreparable harm until this matter can be tried on the merits in case you forgot keeping notes
at home energy transfer partners were the ones who brought us that stunning display of corporate and community center gee that was. the dakota access pipeline i'm sure you can remember that you see every new cycle brings a little good brings a little bad. and it also brings a whole lot of watching the hawks. at the bottom. like you that i got. so. well going to watch for the dark side i robot for and on capital. and that's a that's a good way to look at it but now you know the good news about of the news cycle we
die i've been there with the police here and watching it it can be depressing and it can be very uplifting like this week. craig pipes. you know that's good news. and i'm going to war for courage courage his courage was what making goofy videos on the internet and doing what his corporate overlords tell him to do very courageous so courageous her courage just ten snyder the executive director of the american conservative union well introducing our susie chairman pie at sleep during this award ceremony. is the most courageous heroic person that i know he was asleep kawas death threats his property has been invaded by the george soros crowd and his family has been abused in different ways and of course you don't want anyone going after people's families and we should definitely not do that well then it was on the boards that you. could avoid if you go after the earnings small business owners
but. not neutrality on everybody and by inflicting that neutrality on everyone also . only we're all going to pay more for basic streaming services because the corporate overlords can make an extra buck off it thanks to the courage of those who career courage courage could see what's really funny is he doesn't get to keep oh no we just the way oh yes so the award which is this charles and has to fire a word yet how about we give that to everyone that has ever been on the internet just throw it out there are so good i want to group courage under fire or so last will they ever do. so what it is is it's a handmade kentucky long gun but it's housed at the n.r.a. as museum so the n.r.a. not only gives you an gives you an award but doesn't let you take it home keeps it in their own ok sure previous winners have included the then rebel vice president pants. do you know any former malarky county sheriff
sheriff david clark which again is was shared david clark took some real slings and arrows well you know the thing is when he was a would you ever except in the war that have that is the history going into it. you know when you look at it it's kind of a thing of like don't you think it's a little bit about timing giving everything going on in the news cycle right now to be like accepting an award from the n.r.a. when you've already like upset a bunch of people with net neutrality mary going to upset like all the people with like accepting this what timing is that anti an array of evil i think the idea that five million people that the n.r.a. somehow represents firearm owners is lawful that's a good point it's a guy who's already under investigation for colluding with corporations to circumvent the law and now they're the people who are literally want to they hand money to politicians to circumvent what the public out what the majority of the
public actually wants on safety and firearms and all of that congrats. on the good stuff on the good side of the news i like the fact that the judge stepped up and said no you guys didn't get the right permits for this you guys you know we need to rethink the building of this pipeline across this beautiful pristine louisiana really good news to see you know super part of it was this thing with the the ruling. so there's this suit against this is sort of taking. the earth justice yes see them on january eleventh as a staff yeah they'd sooner or later there's a whole ton of people behind this lawsuit. just. us army corps of engineers you have the the. basin keeper probably didn't write something from louisiana do you lose it across first producers association as well as the gulf restoration network the water keepers a lot of names and. kind of part of this party to this lawsuit the judge didn't
know. earth justice is pretty good about it yeah i know that they there was a quote there or the attorney told the media the court's ruling recognizes the serious threat this pipeline poses to the. basin i think about one of the country's ecological and cultural crown jewels for now at least it's safe from this company's incompetence and greed for now still. some good stuff. sometimes a crack in the door and that is what many fearful of world war three are hoping for with news that north korea has left the door open to possible talks with the united states despite the new sanctions announced last friday r t s n l a champ is that the latest. evening tie in to have so according to treasury secretary steve there are now as many as four hundred fifty sanctions on north korea and half of those have been imposed in just the past year alone since trump
took office but as ms evolved to trump the president's daughter and the senior advisor led the american delegation at the olympic closing ceremonies in north korea allegedly ready to come to the negotiating table with america however this information was relayed by south korean officials there is yet to be official statements from the north but president trump is of course speaking on the issue of new sanctions that aimed to further cripple kim's economy listen to what he said earlier today during a governor's luncheon he hosted at the white house who's joining we probably launched a five hundred four billion dollars last year and three five hundred four billion. you think that president xi is unique. he's helping us with north korea who by the way wants to talk as of last night you heard that they want to talk. and we want to talk also only under the right conditions otherwise we're not talking you know
they've been talking for twenty five years other presidents should have solved this problem before i got here and they've been talking for twenty five years and you know what happened nothing and the president has been clear though they're going forward he will not accept a nuclear north meanwhile kim says his country isn't ready or willing to abandon their nuclear ambitions so we're kind of at a stalemate there however these newly announced sanctions call out china as one of the countries helping north korea evade sanctions at the high seas now the sanctions say twenty seven shipping and trade companies along with twenty eight vessels are complicit in assisting the north illegally move merchandise or goods such as coal and oil ship to ship from international waters now some of the north korean ships being disguised as chinese vessels meanwhile critics of the president are saying these new sanctions only call out china while leaving out russia who they allege are helping north koreans in the same manner but during
a panel discussion with the atlantic council one expert said that the trump administration has actually taken a strong stance against russia in the form of the twenty eight thousand nuclear posture review some even saying perhaps misplacing this nuclear threat as the u.s. ramps up its nuclear capabilities plus i think everyone here would agree that the world more dangerous now than it was in two thousand and ten in terms of the balance of attention to threats it does seem like the review is very rushed oriented and that a lot of the recommendations are kind of oriented around that i'd like to see more discussion would like to see a bit more in the review but really hope to hear it in the continued conversations with the administration about north korea. i think that presents a number of fairly you need challenges for which we need to kind of combine our nuclear policy with a range of counterproliferation and other strategies and i'd like to see that spelled out in greater detail in our eyes the recent reproach met between north and south korea over the olympics is actually being cautioned by peninsula experts as
a ruse by the north to drive a wedge between the u.s. and south korea and that as the winter olympics have drawn to a close and relations are seeming to thaw ivanka trump underscored while she was there in south korea that the administration is there to reaffirm its commitment to maximum pressure on the north to de nuclearize guys thank you very much for the champ without wild report large going on in the world all of that i'm sorry as a commentator i just don't have faith in a lot of these leaders to actually prevent this from happening but i'm happy to see a crack in the door you know i'm happy to see that there's some movement it's hurts to see president trump kind of like dismiss that well as a reporter for twenty five years whatever ridiculous you have this is i mean this is the thing about sanctions they don't work they don't work. they end up hurting not the person at the top just like russian sanctions do you think putin's going to
miss a meal even you know is that do you think the people you know who are at the top and he thinks he's been in cuba do you think castro was missing a meal or do you think kim jong il is going to miss a meal no it's the people that barely have anything to survive on now and you honestly think that people who are starving the point of sanctions is this idea that they're all going to rise up and go up against them they don't have food they don't have food they have limited resources to begin with and we think starving out an entire generation of children is somehow going to be answered the question and i'm sorry but you know and i agree with you completely to have that i'm sorry but why is talking such a negative thing in my mind is like talking isn't dialogue isn't that the way you understand people that you prevent war from happening you prevent bombs from driving by continuing to talk absolutely ridiculous so hard as we go to break court watchers don't forget to let us know what you think of the topics we cover the first reporter shows that are to dot com coming up we offered wired what happened to bernie sanders his.
